Lal Kitab, originally published in urdu language, enshrines such effective astrological principles
and remedial measures that it has rightly been termed as “The Wonder Book” of Astrology.
The science of palmistry too has been explained in such an exquisite manner that each of
the 42 divisions of the human brain have been related to the different houses of a man’s birth chart
in such a scientific manner that the sketch of the human brain reflects accurately on the lines of the
palm. On the basis of these lines of the palm one can draw the actual horoscope of an individual and
can do the placement of planets in various houses of the birth chart. The date of birth and the birth
ascendant can be found out by reading the lines and mounts of the palm, which means that an
individual’s accurate birth chart can be drawn by seeing the lines of his palm. Similarly, by studying
the different aspects of a man’s residential house his birth chart can be accurately prepared on the
basis of the sutras explained in the Lal Kitab.
In addition to the above, Lal Kitab has announced unique remedial measures to solve chronic and
critical human problems in day to day life.These measures do not require the practice of ordeals,
yagnas, havans and other complicated and expensive rituals, which prove more troublesome for
persons who are already in trouble because of the evil effects of certain planets. These measures are
again different from Yantras, Mantras and Tantras, which give various adverse effects if not followed
rigorously in all their minute details. The measures suggested in Lal Kitab are electrically
effective in solving all kinds of human troubles and tensions, without inflicting harm on anybody
i.e. these remedies are completely self defensive against the evils created by the planets without
causing injury in anyway to anyone concerned.
The first part of this great treatise contains the principles and Sutras for interpretation of horoscope,
termed as “Vyakaran”. The birth chart of an individual is prepared like the traditional Parashar
principles, but the only important difference is that the Rashis are not considered or taken
into account for predictive astrology and, therefore, the digits indicating the Rashis in a traditional
birth chart are scrapped. Secondly, for predictive purposes the ascendant is treated as
the first house and it is regarded as the house of the first Rashi, i.e., Aries and counting progressively
in a sequence upto the 12th house being that of Pisces.The specific principles of predictive
astrology as per Lal Kitab are better summed up here as follows
1.  The Sun as lord of the 5th, the Mercury as lord of the 3rd and 6th, the Jupiter as lord of the 9th
and the Saturn as lord of the 10th are directly or indirectly in some form or the other are the Karakas
of the father and his property. But the Jupiter and the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury or Jupiter and Saturn
occupying any house jointly carry no relevance to the knowledge about father or father’s property
at all. Even Mercury and Sun, Mercury and Saturn or Sun and Saturn also sitting together behave in
the same manner.
2.  If two or more inimical planets are occupying a single house, they will not behave as enemies.
But it does not mean that they do not affect the influences of each other and show their own results
of being in that house independently i.e. their conjuction does not affect their individual results.
3.  Friendly planets together occupying a house become extremely friendly and help each other in
producing good and auspicious results.
4.  The 7th house is regarded as the Pucca Ghar (permanent house) of Mercury. If Mercury is placed
in the 7th house of a horoscope, even the powerful planets like Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn
occupying a Kendra, 2nd or 11th house can not affect the health of the native adversely.
5.  If a female planet is placed in any house along with Saturn and both are being aspected by any
other planet, then the aspecting planet will become afflicted and affect adversely the persons and
relatives of such aspecting planet as Karakas.
6.  In general, all planets in their Pucca Ghar, own house or exalted house give good results. A
planet in inimical house or in a house of debilitation gives bad results. If a planet is not placed in his
Pucca Ghar and the same is occupied by a planet inimical to such planet, then that planet will
destroy the good results of the house in which he stands placed.
7.  While examining a horoscope, the 1st, 7th, 8th and 11th houses must be examined together as
they are mutually interested. The planets in the ascendant is treated as a ruler and the one in the 7th
acts as his minister. The planet in the 8th is the eye of that ruler, whereas the planet in the 11th house
is the ruler’s foot.
More planets in the 7th house than the 1st house shows that the ruler does not have required control
over his minister. If the planets in the 11th house are inimical to the planets in the first house, then
they will not obey the command of the ruler i.e., the results of the 11th house will be adversely
The planets of the 8th house (eyes) guide the planets of the 7th house (minister) and control their
actions and effects. If the planets of the 1st and 8th houses are friendly, then the planet in the 7th
house can not play any mischief.
Mars in the 7th is considered to be highly conducive for gaining large property. But if mercury is in
the Lagna, it will destroy the properties. It will be destroyed because of the foolishness of the
native, because here the Mercury being in the first house is Karaka of the native. At the same time
if the Mercury is in the 8th house, it will again destroy the properties, but here the reasons for
destination will be unknown and invisible, because the active elements of the 8th house are always
secretive and mysterious in nature over which the native has no control.
Similarly, if the planets of the 1st and 11th houses destination are friendly, they will control the
planets of the 7th house. If they are inimical, the results would be bad.
The planets of the 1st house aspect the planets of the 7th house. If they are mutually inimical, then
the bad results accrue because of the foolishness or unworthiness of the native. The planets of the
8th house aspect the planets of the 2nd house and thereby affect their results.
8. 2nd, 6th, 8th, 12th and 11th houses must also be examined simaltaneouosly as follows :
(a) The planets of the 8th house aspect the 2nd house and thereby affect the results of the 2nd
house. The effects of the aspects of the planets of the 8th house over the 2nd house are affected by
the planets of the 11th house - favourably if friendly and unfavourably if inimical.
(b) The planets of the 2nd house aspect the 6th house and affects its results. The planets of the 6th
and 8th houses have secret relations with each other, because of which they also affect the planets
of the 2nd house (+++).
(c) The 12th house also affects the 2nd house (+++). If there are evil planets in the 6th and 8th
houses, (because of their secret/implied conjunction) their evil power increases 10 times.
(d) If the planets in the 12th and 8th houses are inimical, the native should not visit temples and
other places of worship.
9. The 3rd, 11th, 5th, 9th and 10th houses must also be examined simaltaneously as follows :
(a) If there is any planet in the 3rd house, it will start showing effects after the birth of the native’s
younger brother. If the 9th and 5th houses are occupied by Saturn Rahu or Ketu then the unfavourable
changes start coming up in the native’s life just after the birth of the child.
(b) If there are good planets in the 9th house and there is no planet in the 2nd house, the native
remains deprived of all the benefits.
(c) If there is no planet in the 4th house, or it is occupied by Rahu, Ketu or Saturn, then the good
results of the 10th house will not be received by the native. If 10th and 2nd houses are empty, the
good results of the 4th house will go waste.
(d) If the 3rd and 9th houses are bad, the 5th will also prove bad.
(e) If the 9th is occupied by Sun or Moon, the 5th house will give good results.
(f) If the 9th is occupied by Sun or Moon, then Rahu or Ketu in the 5th will neither affect the issues
of the native or the native himself adversely.
(g) If Rahu or Ketu be placed in the 5th and there are inimical planets in the 8th then strokes of
misfortune will hit the native through the 11th house. The relatives indicated by the planets of the
5th and 8th houses will also be affected. In this situation the earnings of the native will also be
affected very adversely, if the 2nd house is empty. Nothing will be able to save the native. Now the
planets of the 10th and 5th will also turn to be malefics whatever be their natural charecter.
2. Sun : Effects and Remedies
The second chapter of Lal Kitab, termed as the wonder Book of Astrology, details
the effects of Sun in various houses alongwith the remedies.
The sun, eulogised by the author of the Lal Kitab as Vishnu, the lord of presentation, is the father of
our solar system, around which all planets resulve. The power of light in the sky, the temperature of
the earth, the power of presentation and progress are represented by the sun. His presence means
the “day” and absence means the “night”. The soul in human body and the power of rendering
bodily services to others have also been referred to the Sun - a royal planet of power, authority and
The Sun provides good results if placed in houses 1 to 5,8,9,11 and 12. The 6th, 7th, and 10th are
bad houses for the Sun. The Moon, the Jupiter and the Mars are the planets friendly to the Sun,
where the Saturn, Venus, Rahu and Ketu are enemies. The first is the Puccka Ghar, the permanent
house and the house of exaltation of the Sun, whereas the 7th house is in the house of debilitation.
The Mars in the 6th and Ketu in the Ist house make the Sun produce results of an exalted planet. If
the Sun is exalted or placed in an auspicious house of a person’s horoscope he is bound to rise
higher and higher in power and position. If obstacles are created against him by a person that person
is bound to meet his doom. Much better results are proposed if the Sun is in conjunction with
The Sun gives adverse effects on the things associated with the house in which he is placed. Consequently
in the Ist house he will create health problems for the native. In the 2nd house he will affect
the family and its comforts absolutely adversely.
The sun in the 6th house will not prove good for the sisters and daughters of the native. In the 7th he
will face obstacles in the comforts of the wife. The Sun of the 8th house will saue the native from
death in critical situations.
The sun of the 9th house will destroy the comforts of the forefathers and perhaps deprive the native
of their properties. In the 10th, the sun will affect the father adversely. The sun in the 11th increases
and multiplies the income of the native manifold, if he does not augment the power of Saturn by
cosumption of liquor, meat and eggs. The Sun in the 12th house destroys the comforts of the night
hour sleep of the native.
The Sun will not be able to harm Venus when sun is being aspected by Saturn because Saturn and Venus are great
friends. On the contrary, if Saturn is being aspected by Sun, then the Sun will not be afraid of Saturn and he
will destroy the Venus as both are natural enemies in the house where he is placed.

3. Moon : Effects and Remedies
As explained in the preceding issue, the Sun is regarded as the generator of power
that gives spirit and life to all planets, the Moon is considered to be the conductor
of power lent by Sun and rules over the lives of the beings on this earth. Sun
represents individuality, whereas Moon shows one’s personality.
Moon governs over impregnation, conception, birth of a child and the animal instinct. She represents
mother, mother’s family, grandmother, old women, horse, navigation, agricultural land, Lord
Shiva, love, kindness, mental peace, heart, services rendered for other’s welfare and the 4th house.
The Moon’s effect comes up in the 16th, 51st and 86th year of the native and similarly its 1st cycle
falls in the 24th year, the 2nd in the 49th year and the 3rd cycle falls in the 94th year of the native.
The Jupiter, Sun and Mars are Moon’s friends, whereas Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are inimical to her.
For her protection, the Moon sacrifies her friendly planets - Sun, Mars or Jupiter. Moon is the Lord
of 4th house, stands exalted in the 2nd house of Taurus and becomes debilitated in the 8th house of
Scorpio. The Moon provides very good results if placed in houses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 9 whereas the
6th, 8th, 10th, 11th and 12th houses are bad for the Moon. The death of a domestic milch animal or
a horse, drying up of a person’s well or pond, the loss of the senses of touching and feeling are the
signs of moon turning malefic.
The placement of the Ketu in the 4th house causes Matri Rina i.e. mother’s debt. In such a situation
pieces of silver of equal weight and size be collected from every member of the family and the same
should be thrown together into the running water of a river. Consequently all the ill effects would be
warded off.
Moon in Ist House
In general, the 1st house belongs to Mars and Sun. When the moon is also placed therein, this house
will come under the combined influences of the Mars, the Sun and the Moon i.e. all the 3 mutual
friends will be treated as occupants of this house. The Sun and Mars will extend all friendly support
to their natural friend Moon placed on the throne i.e. the ascendant house.
Such native will be soft-hearted and will inherit all the traits and qualities of his mother. He will be
either the eldest brother or will certainly be treated so. As long as the native receives the blessings
of his mother and keeps her happy, he will continue to rise and prosper in every way.
The things and the relatives as represented by Mercury, who is inimical to Moon, will prove harmful
to the native, e.g., the sister-in-law and the green color will affect adversely. Hence it is better to
keep away from them.
Burning milk (for making Khoya) or selling milk for profit would reduce or minimize the power of
the Moon placed in the 1st house, which means that the native’s life and property would be destroyed
if he engages himself in such activities. Such a native should serve others with water and
milk freely for long life and all round prosperity. Such a native will get a life of about 90 years and
will be bestowed with honours and fame by the Govt.
1. Do not marry between the age of 24 and 27 years, i.e., marry either before 24 years of age or
after 27 years of age.
2. Do not build a house out of your earnings between 24 and 27 years of age.
3. Keep away from the green colour and sister-in-law. Do not keep a silver pot or kettle with a
snout (Toti) in it in the house.

5. Insert copper nails on the four corners of your bed.
6. Whenever crossing a river, always throw coins in it for the welfare of your children.
7. Always keep a silver Thali in your house.
8. Use Silver pots for drinking water or milk and avoid the use of glassware for the same.
Moon in 2nd House
The results of the 2nd house, when Moon is placed therein, will be influenced by Jupiter, Venus and
the Moon, because this is the Puckka Ghar, the permanent house of Jupiter and Venus is the lord of
the second Rashi Taurus. The Moon gives very good results in this house, as it becomes very strong
here because of the friendly support of Jupiter against Venus.
Such a native may not have sisters, but will certainly be having brothers. In case he doesn’t have,
his wife will certainly have brothers. He will certainly receive his due share in parental properties.
Whatever be the planetary position otherwise, but the Moon here will ensure male offspring to the
The native will receive good education, which will add to his fortune. The Business associated with
the things of the Moon will prove highly advantageous. He may be a reputed teacher also.
The Ketu placed in the 12th house will cause eclipse of the Moon here, which will deprive the
native either of good education or of male children.
1. Temple within the native’s house may deprive the native of male issue.
2. The things associated with the Moon, i.e., silver, rice, non-cemented floor of the house, the
mother and old women and their blessings will prove very lucky for the native.
3. Offering green colour clothes to small girls continuously for 43 days.
4. Place the things associated with the Moon into the foundation of your house, e.g., a square
piece of silver.
Moon in 3rd House
The results of the 3rd house, when the Moon is placed therein, will be influenced by the Mars,
Mercury and Moon. Here the Moon proves highly beneficial to ensure a long life and great wealth
or riches for the native.
If there are no planets in the 9th and 11th houses, then Mars and Venus will give good results to the
native because of the Moon being in the 3rd house.
With the advancement of the native’s education and learning, the economic condition of his father
will deteriorate, but without affecting his education adversely. If Ketu’s placing in the horoscope is
auspicious and not harming the Moon in the 3rd, the education of the native will bear good fruits
and prove advantageous in every manner.
If the Moon is malefic, it will cause great loss of wealth and money at the age of the malefic planet
placed in the 9th house.
1. Offer in donation the things associated with the Moon, e.g., silver or rice, after the birth of a
daughter and the things associated with the Sun e.g., wheat and jaggery when a son is born.
2. Do not make use of your daughter’s money and wealth.
3. To avoid the evil effects of a malefic planet in the 8th house, serve the guests and others by
offering them milk and water freely.
4. Worshipping Goddess Durga and obtaining the blessings of small girls by touching their feet
after serving them food and sweets.
Moon in 4th House
The results of the 4th house are the general product of the total influences of Moon, the lord of the
4th Rashi Cancer and the permanent resident of the 4th house. Here the Moon becomes very strong
and powerful in every manner.
The use of, and association with the things represented by the Moon will prove highly beneficial to
the native. Offer milk in place of water to the guests. Obtain blessings of your mother or the elderly
women by touching their feet. The 4th house is the river of income which will continue to increase
expenditure. In other words, expenditure will augment income.
The native will be a reputed and honoured person with soft heart and all sorts of riches. He will
inherit all the traits and qualities of his mother and will face the problems of life boldly like a lion.
He will receive honour and favours from the government along with riches and will provide peace
and shelter to others.
Good education will be ensured for the native. If Jupiter is placed in the 6th house and Moon in the
4th, parental profession will suit him. If a person has mortgaged certain valuables to the native, he
will never come back to demand it.
If Moon be placed with 4 planets in the 4th house, the native will be economically very strong and
wealthy. The male planets will help the native like sons and the female planets like daughters.

government. Anyone supported by him will win.

and will have to struggle a lot for reaping the benefits of his educational achievements.
If the Moon is placed in the 6th, 2nd, 4th, 8th and 12th houses it is auspicious. The native would
enliven a dying person by putting a few drops of water in his mouth.
But if the Moon is malefic in the 6th house and Mercury is placed in the 2nd or 12th house, the

The 7th house belongs to Venus and Mercury. When the Moon is placed here, the results of this
house will be affected by the Venus, Mercury and Moon. Venus and Mercury combined together
give the effects of the Sun. The 1st house aspects the 7th house. Consequently the rays of the Sun

a native loses both -education and the mother. However, the evil effects of the Moon in the 7th
house will be mitigated if Jupiter and Saturn be placed in the 2nd house.

the traits and features of both these planets - good conduct, soft heartedness, religious bent of mind
and love for virtuous acts and pilgrimage. He will live upto 75 years. A friendly planet in the 5th
house will augment comforts and pleasures from the son and develops intense interest in religious

in the almirah.
2. Serve the labourers with milk.
3. Offer milk to snakes and rice to fish.
Moon in 10th House
The 10th house is in every manner ruled by Saturn. This house is aspected by the 4th house, which
is similarly ruled by Moon. Hence the Moon in the 10th house ensures a long life of about 90 years
for the native. Moon and Saturn are inimical, therefore, medicines in liquid form will always prove
harmful to him. The milk will act as poison if taken during night. If he is a medical practitioner, dry
medicines administered by him to the patient will have a magical effect for cure. If a surgeon, he
will earn great wealth and fame for surgery. If the 2nd and 4th houses are empty money and wealth

Moon in 11th house
This house is strongly influenced by Jupiter and Saturn. Every planet placed in this house will
destroy its inimical planets and the things associated with them. In this way the Moon here will
destroy its enemy Ketu’s things, i.e., the sons of the native. Here the Moon will have to face the
combined power of its enemies Saturn and Ketu, which will weaken the Moon. Now if Ketu is
placed in the 4th house, the life of the native’s mother will be endangered. The business associated
with Mercury will also prove harmful. Starting house construction or purchase of a house on Saturdays
will strengthen the Saturn (the Moon’s enemy) which will prove disastrous for the native.

the fortunes of the native.

Moon in 12th house
This house belongs to Moon’s friend Jupiter. Here the Moon will have good effects on Mars and the
things associated with Mars, but it will harm its enemies Mercury and Ketu and the things associated
with them. Hence the business and things associated with the house in which Mars is placed
will provide highly beneficial effects. Similarly, the business and things associated with the houses
where Mercury and Ketu are placed will be strongly damaged. The Moon in the 12th houses causes
a general fear in the native’s mind about numerous unforeseen troubles and dangers and thus destroys
his sleep and peace of mind. Ketu in the 4th house will become weak and affect the native’s
son and mother very adversely.
1. Wearing Gold in ears, drinking milk after inserting hot piece of gold in it and visiting religious
places of worship will ward off the evils of the Moon in 12th house and also that of the Ketu in
the 4th house.
2. Never offer milk and food to religious saints/sadhus.
3. Do not open a school, college or any other educational institute and do not help children in

4. Mars : Effects And Remedies
Mars is a dry, red and fiery planet. Masculine by nature it signifies energy,
both constructive and destructive depending upon his position as Mars positive
and Mars negative. If Sun and Mercury are placed together in one house,
Mars would be positive but if Saturn and Sun are placed in one house Mars
becomes negative.
Mars acts on the extremes - either soft like a wax or hard like a stone. The Sun, Moon and Jupiter
are his friends, whereas Mercury and Ketu are his enemies. Rahu and Saturn are neutral to Mars.
The first cycle of Mars runs between the ages 28 and 33, the 2nd between 63 and 68 years and the
3rd between 98 and 103 years. The 1st and 8th houses are the own houses of Mars and he gets
exalted in the 10th house of his debilitation. Mars acts as a malefic in the 4th and 8th houses, but he
is benefic if placed in the 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12th houses.
Mars is the significator of sex, brothers, land and property and rules over the animal instincts in
man. A benefic Mars offers self confidence, sharp wit, faculty of argumentation and adventurous
spirit, strong determination and qualities of leadership in all human pursuits. On the contrary, a
weak and afflicted Mars makes the native lose temper quickly, fool hardy, quarrelsome and brutal.
Such a Mars makes the native a sexual pervert.
The general effects and remedial measures of Mars according to Lal Kitab can be delineated as
follows :
Mars in Ist House
Mars in the 1st house makes the native good natured, truthful and richer from the 28th year of age.
He wins favours from the government and victory against the enemies without much effort. He
earns large profits from the business associated with Saturn i.e., iron, wood, machinery etc. and the
relatives represented by Saturn i.e., nephews, grandsons, uncles etc.
Spontaneous curses from the mouth of such a native will never go waste. Association of Saturn
with Mars provides physical trouble to the native.
1. Avoid the acceptance of things free of cost or in charity.
2. Avoid evil deeds and telling lies.
3. Association with saints and Faqirs will prove very harmful.
4. Things of ivory will give very adverse effects. Avoid them.
Mars in 2nd House
The native with Mars in the 2nd house is generally the eldest issue of his parents, or else he or she
would always like to be treated so. But living and behaving like a younger brother would prove
highly beneficial and ward off several evils automatically. Mars in this house provides great wealth
and properties from the in-laws’ family. Mars negative here makes the native a snake in disguise for
others and causes his death in war or quarrels.
Mars with Mercury in the 2nd house weakens the will power and undermines the importance of the

Mars in 3rd House
The 3rd house is affected by Mars and Mercury, who provide brothers and sisters to the native i.e.,
he will not be the only issue of his parents. Others will be highly benefited from the native, but he
will not be able to receive benefit from others. Humbleness will bring rewards. In-laws will become
richer and richer after the native’s marriage. The native believes in the principle “ eat, drink and be
merry” and suffers from blood disorders.

of mind and suffers from jealousy to others. He always misbehaves with his younger brothers. The
native’s evil mission gets strong destructive powers. Such a native affects the life of his mother,
wife, mother-in-law etc very adversely. His anger becomes the cause of his overall destruction in
various aspects of life.

results in this house. The sons of the native become instruments of wealth and fame for him. His
prosperity increases manifold after the birth of sons. The things and relatives represented by Venus
and Moon will prove beneficial in every manner. Someone of his forefathers must have been a
doctor or Vaidya.
The prosperity of the native will continue to grow more and more with the growth in age. But
romance and emotional affairs with the opposite sex will prove highly disastrous for the native,
which will destroy his mental peace and night sleep too.
1. Maintain a good moral character.
2. Keep water in a pot below the head side of your bed at night and drop it in a flower pot in the

Hence Mars in this house will keep himself away from both. The native will be courageous, adventurous,
lover of justice and powerful enough to set fire into water. He will be highly benefited by the
trade and business associated with Mercury. His pen will wield more power than the sword. If Sun,
Saturn and Mars are placed together in one house, the brothers, mother, sisters and wife will be
affected very adversely.
1. Distribute salt in place of sweets on the birth of a male child.
2. His brothers should keep the native happy by offering him something or the other for their
protection and prosperity. But if he does not accept such things, the same should be thrown in

4. Adopt remedies of Saturn for family comfort. Worship Ganeshji for parents’ health and destruction
of enemies.

effect of Sun. If Mars is placed therein, the 7th house will be affected by Sun and Mars both, which
ensures that the native’s ambition will be fulfilled. Wealth, property and family will increase.
But if Mercury is also placed here alongwith Mars, very adverse results will follow regarding the
things and relations represented by Mercury e.g., sister, sister-in-law, nurses, maid servant, parrot,
goats etc. Hence it would be better to keep away from them.

fortunate for him. Generally he will have as many brothers as his father had. Living with brothers in

Mars in 10th House
This is the best position of Mars in a horoscope, the place of his exaltation. If the native is born in
a poor family, his family will become rich and affluent after his birth. If he is born in a rich family,
his family will grow richer and richer after his birth. If the native is the eldest brother he will gain a
more distinct recognition and reputation in society. He will be bold, courageous, healthy and competent
enough to set traditions, norms and rules in society.
However, if malefic planets Rahu, Ketu and Saturn or Venus and Moon are placed in the 2nd house,
the aforesaid beneficial effects are reduced. Further if a friendly planet is placed in the 3rd house, it
will also affect the results of Mars in the 10th house adversely. If Saturn is placed in the 3rd house,
the native will gain huge wealth and large properties in the later part of his life along with a kingly
position. Mars in the 10th house but no planet in the 5th house provides all round prosperity and
1. Do not sell ancestral property and gold of the house.
2. Keep a pet deer in your house.

usually a trader.
1. One should never sell one’s ancestral property.
2. Keeping Sindoor or honey in an earthen pot will give good results.
Mars in 12th House

considered as the “Pukka Ghar” of Rahu, so now Rahu will not trouble the native notwithstanding
its position in native’s horoscope.
1. Take honey the first thing in the morning.
2. Eating sweets and offering sweets to another person will increase the wealth of the native.
5. Mercury : Effects & Remedies
In astrological parlance Mercury has been understood as an externally variable,
vacillating, convertible, neutral and dualistic planet. Mercury reflects
the mentality of an individual, governs the reaction to our senses and impressions
and rules over the central nervous system. As an intellectual planet it
represents intelligence,
genius, analytic power and reproductibility.
Mercury is the smallest planet of the solar system. The author of Lal Kitab has compared Mercury
with a bat, which keeps hanging upside down and pounces upon the face of a child at the first
opportunity. The native fails to understand anything and meanwhile the mysterious and mischievous
Mercury turns the cycle of fortune in the reverse gear. Mercury produces the effects of the
planet or planets it is associated with. Mercury is considered malefic in the 3rd, 8th, 9th and 12th
houses. Rahu gives bad results in 1, 5, 7, 8 and 11th houses. If Mercury and Rahu both are in their
auspicious houses then Mercury causes havoc in the natives houses and produces disastrous result
like putting the native behind the bars or creating troubles of the same sort. Mercury is considered
auspicious in the 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and the 7th houses and gives bad results when placed in the 3, 8, 9, 10,
11 and 12th. Its colour is green and Moon is its enemy. Sun Venus and Rahu are friends, whereas
Mars, Saturn, and Ketu are neutral to him. 7th house is the Pukka Ghar of Mercury. It stands
exalted in the 6th house and gets debilitated in the 12th house. Affected Venus causes diseases of
tooth and nervous system. If Mercury is placed alone in any house the native keeps running and
wasting time here and there.
Mercury in 1st House
Mercury in 1st house makes the native kind, humorous and diplomatic with administrative skill.
Such a native generally lives long and becomes selfish and mischievous by nature having special
attraction for non-vegetarian dishes and drinks. He receives favour from the government and his
daughters have royal and luxurious lives. The relatives represented by the house in which Sun is
placed gain wealth and riches within a little time and he himself will be having many sources of
income. If Sun is placed along with Mercury in the 1st house or if the Mercury is aspected by Sun
the wife of native will come from a rich and noble family and will be good natured. Such a native
will be affected by the evil effects of Mars but Sun will never give bad effects.
Rahu and Ketu will have evil effects, which suggests that the in laws and the offspring of the native
will be adverse. If Mercury is in the 1st house, the native will be adept in the art of influencing
others and he will live like a king. Malefic Mercury in the 1st house along with Moon in the 7th
house destroy the native because of intoxication.

2. Association with your sisters in law is harmful.
3. Keeping sheep, goat and parrots as pets is strictly prohibited.
Mercury in 3rd House
Mercury in the 3rd house is not considered good. Mercury is inimical to Mars. But Mars does not
have enemity with Mercury. Therefore the native could receive benefits from his brother, but he
will not be beneficial to his brother or others. By virtue of its aspects of 9th and 11th houses Mercury
affects the income and the condition of the father very adversely.
1. Clean your teeth with alum everyday.
2. Feed birds and donate a goat.
3. Don’t live in a south facing house.

mouth of the native will certainly prove true.

native wishes well. In a female horoscope it produces good result. The pen of the native wields
more power then the sword. The sister of the native’s wife will prove highly helpful in every matter.
If a Moon is placed in the 1st house, overseas journey will be advantageous. Saturn in the 3rd house
will make the wife’s family very rich.
1. Avoid any business in partnership.
2. Avoid speculation.
3. Do not keep relationship with sister in law of spoilt character.

Mercury gives very bad results in 8th house, but if it is placed along with a male planet it will give
good effects of the associated planet. The native lives a hard life, victimised by diseases and during
the age 32-34 his income goes down by half. It is more harmful if some planet is placed in the 2nd
house. If Rahu is also placed in the same house the native may have to go to jail, may have to be
hospitalized or may have to wander from place to place. Bad results accrue if Mars is also placed
therein. Mercury here causes disfavour from the government and diseases like blood disorder, eye

2. Place milk or rain water in a container on the roof of the house.

4. Do not accept any Tabeez from any Sadhu or Faqir.

house, but residency in such a house gives very bad result and can be disastrous.
1. Consumption of eggs, meat and liquor are strictly prohibited.
2. Offer rice and milk in religious places.
Mercury in 11th House
Mercury in this house gives bad results, because of enemity to Jupiter. At the age of 34 the native

of mind and very often suffers from headache. He has a long life but suffers from Mercury, although,
however, if Mercury is accompanied by Saturn in this house very good results follow.
Saturn along with Sun and Mercury in 12th house also gives good result. Daughters, sisters, father’s
sister and niece will be unhappy as long as they are living in the native’s house. Such persons are

Jupiter is a fiery, noble, benevolent, masculine, expansive, optimistic, positive and
dignified planet. Higher attributes of the mind and soul, generosity, joy, jubilation
and joviality along with high reasoning ability and the power of right judgement
are all governed by Jupiter. Jupiter rules educational interests, law, religion, philosophy,
banking, economics and indicates the extent of one’s love and longing
for religion, scriptures, elders and preceptors. He is also a signification of wealth,
progress, philosophic nature, good conduct, health and children.
Jupiter represents ‘Thursday’ and the yellow colour. He is regarded as ‘Karaka’ for 2nd, 5th and
9th houses. The Sun, Mars and Moon are his friends, where as Mercury and Venus are enemies to
him. Rahu, Ketu and Saturn adopt neutrality to him. He stands exalted in the 4th house and the
10th house is the house of his debilitation.
Jupiter provides good results if placed in houses 1, 5, 8, 9 and 12, but 6th, 7th and the 10th are the
bad houses for him. Jupiter gives bad results when Venus or Mercury get placed in the 10th house
of a horoscope. However, jupiter never gives bad results if placed alone in any house. A malefic
Jupiter affects the Ketu (son) very adversely. Jupiter offers malefic results if he is placed with
Saturn, Rahu or Ketu in a horoscope.
Jupiter in 1st House
Jupiter in the Ist house makes the native necessarily rich, even if he is deprived of learning and
education. He will be healthy and never afraid of enemies. He will rise every 8th year of his life
through his own efforts and with the help of friends in the government. If the 7th house is not
occupied by any planet success and prosperity will come after the marriage of the native. Marriage
or construction of a house with one’s own earnings in the 24th or 27th year would prove
inauspicious for the longevity of the father’s life. Jupiter in Ist house along with the Saturn in the
9th house causes health problems for the native. Jupiter in the Ist house and Rahu in the 8th
causes the death of the native’s father because of heart attack or asthma.
1. Offer the things of Mercury, Venus and Saturn to the religious places.
2. Serving cows and helping untouchables.

beauty and all worldly comforts. Venus represents that power of love which leads
to the merger of two individual selves into one and rules the gentle and refined
attributes of human life.
As a preceptor of demons, Venus stands for the husband in the horoscope of a female and represents
the wife in the horoscope of a male. Venus offers good results if placed alone in the birth chart. The

considered bad for Venus. Accordingly, Venus offers very good results in the houses of Mercury,
Saturn and Ketu, whereas evil effects will follow if posited in the houses of Sun, Rahu and Moon.

substantial heavenly bodies, with shape or mass content. Rightly termed as
shadowy planets, their movement is interrelated and as parts of one body they
are at all times just opposite to each other . Greater significance has been
attached to the role of Rahu in influencing human affairs in various dimensions,
especially in Kaliyug.
The author of Lal Kitab describes Saturn as a serpent and Rahu and Ketu as its head and tail
respectively. As a node of Moon, Rahu shall not provide adverse results so long as 4th house or
Moon is not afflicted. He gives good results when Mars occupies houses 3 and 12, or when Sun and
Mercury are in house 3, or when he himself is posited in 4th house. Rahu further provides good
results if placed together with Mercury or aspected by him.
Rahu offers highly beneficial effects if placed in houses earlier than Saturn. But if it is otherwise,

provide adverse results, whereas Ketu’s effect would be zeroed.

otherwise it will give good results in 1st house. If Rahu is malefic the native should never take any

house, the effect of Ketu can never be inauspicious.

If Ketu is auspicious or benefic in this house, the native will be laborious, rich and happy, but will
always be concerned and troubled because of his progeny. He may fear frequent transfers or travels,
but ultimately it would always be postponed.

11. Striking Principles and Precautions
The author of Lal Kitab has enunciated such significant principles of astrology
that stand well tested today and as such they are of utmost importance in
our day to day life. In view of this, an effort is being made here to describe
some unfailing principles and astrological precautions for the benefit of people
at large.
Residential Houses
To begin with, no temple with idols should be constructed even for individual worship in a residential
house. However, keeping photos or drawings of deities on paper is not prohibited. This is highly
inauspicious for the natives born with Jupiter in 7th house.
If there is a small dark room at the end of the house, where there is no passage for air or light, the
same should be left as it is and no attempt should be made to facilitate natural light through opening
windows etc. in that room; otherwise, misfortunes will strike the residents.
Places where ornaments or money is kept secretly must not be left empty. If there is nothing to be
kept, please put some dry fruits there.
There must necessarily be some uncemented place in a house. But if it is not feasible, the articles
related to Venus must be installed and established therein.
Safe Delivery and Longevity of Children
• Worship of lord Ganesh is highly auspicious for children and property.
• For safe delivery of children, a milk pot filled with milk and a sugar pot filled with sugar must be
touched by the delivering mother and kept at some different place. After the delivery both the pots
should be offered to some temple and should not be brought back from there. Good effects will
multiply if the quality of the pots is good.
• If one’s children do not survive the native must distribute salty preparations in place of sweets, to
celebrate the birth of the child.
Alms and Charity
• Digging of wells or providing drinking water facilities for public is strictly prohibited for those
with Moon in 6th house of the birth chart. Any violation of the above would invite utter destruction
and extreme poverty.
• Building of Dharmshalas, Sarais or inns is strictly
prohibited for those having Saturn in 8th house.
• Saturn in Lagna and Jupiter in 5th house cause death of children one after the other, if copper
coins are given in charity.
• Jupiter in 10th and Moon in 4th cause false allegations and critical legal proceedings against the
native if he builds temples or Gurudwaras.
• Financial aid to widows and scholarships to poor children are strictly prohibited for those having
Venus in 9th house.
• Grave consequences would folllow if a native with Moon in 12th house opens schools for free
education, or offers food to religious saints and Jogins.
• Anyone having Jupiter in 7th house must not offer clothes to anyone in charity
• Donations in the morning and evening hours by persons having Sun in 7th or 8th house of their
horoscope will produce highly harmful and poisonous effects.
The younger brother should never go for adoption of children of the elder brother. At the same time
he should also not arrange the free marriage of the daughter of his elder brother. These practices
would certainly lead to disastrous consequences.
Selection of Bridegrooms
• Saturn in 11th house makes the native desert his wife and children in young age, whereas Saturn
in the boy’s 2nd house proves inauspicious for the bride’s family.
• Mercury and Rahu combining in houses 3, 8, 9, or 12 of the groom is also inauspicious for the
bride’s family.
• Venus and Ketu together in Lagna make the native impotent.
• The groom is likely to be of bad sexual habits and may destroy his wealth in that, if the planetary
positions are as follows :
(a) Sun in 6th and Mars in 10th with the afflicted 12th house.
(b) Moon in Lagna and Jupiter in 11th house .
(c) Jupiter and Venus in 10th house.
Remedies Applicabale to All.
• Sweet loaves of bread, specially baked in Tandoor, should be offered to animals every month for
warding off sickness, quarrels and other troubles, caused by Mars negative in the horoscope.
• Place a pot of water under the headside of the bed at night and pour it on a tree or plant in the
• Taking meals in the kitchen is a strong safeguard against the mischiefs of Rahu.
• From one’s own meal a Chapati or a piece of it must be offered to cows, crows and dogs for
allround well being and prosperity.
Further, we all believe that going to a temple for offering prayer is always a good thing, which must
be admired and encouraged. But according to Lal Kitab, the native having a malefic planet, especially
Saturn in 8th house, when 2nd house is empty, must not visit temples or other places of
worship. Rather he should bow his head from outside. Similarly, if planets occupying 6th, 8th and
12th houses are inimical to each other and 2nd house is not occupied by any planet, the native must
avoid visiting temples and other religious places of worship.
The most striking thing about Lal Kitab is that it enshrines due admiration for Vedic culture and
philosophy of the Hindus. Living in a joint family has been suggested as a powerful remedial
measure and if for some reason this is not possible the native should sleep on the bed sheet which
was used by his father. In other cases the native has been asked to obtain the blessings of parents
and elders etc. as an amulet against the evil. It is worth pointing out that such simple and innocent
remedies have worked wonders in tested cases.
