KP Astrology


KP astrology, also known as Krishnamurti Paddhati astrology, before KP astrology, Vedic astrology was prevalent in India.  KP system study was devised by Shri K.S. Krishnamurthy who is considered one of the most famous astrologers of all time.  It is a more practical, streamlined, and simplified approach to astrology compared to traditional Vedic astrology. The Krishnamurti method is 100 years old. This is a very popular method because the calculation done by this method is accurate. The system is known for its emphasis on the accurate timing of events and precise predictions. KP astrology calculation is based on planets, stars, or Lords and sub-lords. it is constellation based. One of the key features of KP astrology is the use of a sub-divisional chart system known as the "Krishnamurti Paddhati (KP) Ayanamsa" or the KP Sub-Lord theory. In this system, each sign is further divided into smaller subdivisions called "sub-lords" which are ruled by specific planets. These sub-lords are used to analyze the timing and outcome of events with great precision. KP astrology also places an emphasis on ruling planets, known as "Significators," which are determined based on a person's birth chart and the specific questions asked. The movement and placement of these Significators are used to predict various aspects of a person's life, including career, relationships, health, and finances.

The system also has various techniques like the "Horary or Prashan Kundli" method, where an astrologer answers specific questions based on the time the question was asked, and the "Time Division" method, which helps in determining the timing of events.

Overall, KP astrology is known for its practical approach, emphasis on timing, and precise predictions. It is popular among astrologers who prefer a more streamlined and focused system for analyzing birth charts to make predictions. Here at Kundli Dikhao, we tried to make it short, precise and easy to understand.

But there is no shortcut to learn quickly unless your basics are not clear.

In more simple words, prediction is done with Nakshatra, Nakshatra Lord, and Nakshatra Sub lord. There are 27 Nakshatra and nine planets in astrology. Each planet has been given three constellations.


Nakshatra of Ketu - Ashwani, Magha, and Moola

Nakshatra of Venus - Bharni, Purva Phalguni, Purva Ashada

Nakshatra of the Sun - Kritika, Uttra Phalguni, Uttra Ashada

Nakshatra of moon - Rohini, Hasta, Shravan

Nakshatra of Mars - Mrigshira, Chitra, Dhanishtha

Nakshatra of Rahu - Adra, Swati, Shatbhisha

Nakshatra of Jupiter - Punervasu, Vishakha, Purva Bhadrapada

Nakshatra of Saturn - Pushya, Anuradha, Uttra Bhadrapada

Nakshatra of Mercury - Ashlesha, Jayeshtha, Revti

To predict an event along with Nakshatra and the Planet one should know about 12 houses and their main functions.

The 1st house - nature, Outlook, name, fame, and ego

The 2nd house - money and savings, speech, family, right eye

The 3rd house - travel, strength, younger siblings

The 4th house - Home, vehicle, property, graduation

The 5th house - education, children, love affair, master's degree

The 6th house - disease, loan, enemy, court case

The 7th house - married life, husband, wife, business, business partnership

The 8th house - long disease, research

The 9th house - luck and fortune, education after a break

The 10th house - profession, fame

The 11th house - income, gains, profits.

The 12th house - expenses, legal troubles, foreign travel, research degree

While doing prediction with the KP method, we analyze the KP Chart/ Niryana chalit chart, KP bhav spasht table, KP planetary position table, and KP significator’s table the one that signifies or foreshows( A planet is said to be a Significators of the particular house when it has the capability of offering the result of that house). Calculation of events is very easy.


First, we create Kundli with the KP method using astrology software. In professional software, KP Kundli can be created. Then take the star lord (planet) of the sub-lord of a particular bhav from the bhav spasht table.


Kundli created with the KP method in my software looks like the given below. For more clarity, I have taken out the bhav spasht table (TABLE 1), planetary position table (TABLE 2), and significators table (TABLE 3). Mainly we need this table from the KP page to predict an event.

KP Page


Table 1


Then, we look for that star lord (planet) in the planetary position table and check its lord and sub lord.

Table 2


Then, we look for planet significators in significators table.

Table 3


The star lord shows if event will occur or not, lord shows the possibility and sub lord fulfill the promise if positive Significators for the event occur.

For example, a person asks about foreign travelling like “Do I have foreign travel in my chart”?

To predict this event


Step 1

We created Kundli with K P astrology using the details (Name, Date of birth, Birthplace, and Birth time) method, now, We will have to go through the bhav spasht table (TABLE 1) and see the Sub lord(star lord) of the 12th house because the 12th house gives foreign travelling and settlement. The 3rd house shows short travelling. The 9th house also shows travelling but not the settlement. So the sub-lord of the 12th house is the planet, Venus.


Step 2

Now, check the planetary position table to check the lord and sub-lord for the 12th house star lord (sub-lord) from the bhav spasht table. Lord and sub-lord of Venus in planetary position TABLE 2 are Jupiter and Mars respectively.


Step 3

Now, check the Significators in the Significators (TABLE 3). Significators of Venus (2, 4, 7, 9 and 10), Jupiter (1, 4, and 7), and Mars (3, 5, 6, 8, 10). We will write Significators for star-lord, lord, and sub-lord.


Here if you see the Significators of Venus there is the number 9 present in the Significators, Showing that an event may happen. Lord don’t have Significators (3, 9, and 12) related to foreign travelling. But sub lord showing 3 and 6 are present in the Significators which means foreign traveling is there under the Mahadasha of Venus and Anterdasha of Mars.

Positive and Negative Significators Table


In the above table, positive and negative Significators are given. While doing prediction if positive Significators (shows possibility) are there then the event will happen and if more negative Significators are present then the event will not happen. Sometimes it is possible that while doing prediction positive Significators are less but if a planet related to that event is there then some possibility is there.


Points to remember

  1. We see education with the 5th house but for graduation, master's degree, education after a break, and research degree we check 4th, 5th, 9th, and 12th bhav respectively.

  2. We check Health from the 1st Bhav, but for short-term illness, long-term illness, and hospitalization we check from the 6th, 8th, and 12th bhav respectively.

Dasha and Anterdasha's analysis with the KP method

Mahadasha and Anterdasha are terms used to describe different time periods or sub-periods of a particular planet within a person's life based on the planetary positions in their birth chart. Being a part of the Vedic astrology system, it plays a significant role in the prediction of events, and outcomes.

Mahadasha: Mahadasha is a major planetary period, which is a longer duration of time governed by a specific planet. Each person is born under a particular Mahadasha, which lasts for several years, depending on the planetary cycle. It is determined by the position of the Moon at the time of birth in a Nakshatra and is divided into sub-periods ruled by different planets. For example, if a person is born during the Mars Mahadasha, they will experience the influence of the Moon for a significant portion of their life.

Anterdasha: Anterdasha, the sub-period or minor period comes during the Mahadasha. Within each Mahadasha, there are multiple Anterdasha of all planets which are considered in Vedic astrology. The duration or time period of an Anterdasha varies depending on the length of the Mahadasha and the order of the planets in the Dasha cycle. The Mahadasha and Anterdasha periods can influence various aspects of life, including career, relationships, health, and overall well-being.

Dasha's analysis is very simple in KP astrology. We have to check current Dasha’s lord and sub-lord and their Significators and further Anterdasha should be analyzed for a specific time period of the event

. For example- a person asks about his health during the current Dasha. First, we check which planet Dasha is going on currently then find the lord and sub-lord and their significators respectively of that particular planet. If 6,8, or 12 is present then health will not be good, or if 1, 5 is present then health will be good. If 1, 5, 6, 8, 12 any of these significators come then there will be ups and downs in the health. Then Next step is to check the Anterdasha which carries 6, 8, 12 or any of it.

Prashan Kundli


Prashan Kundli, or Horary Astrology, is a part of astrology that focuses on answering specific questions using an astrological chart called a Kundli. In KP astrology, Prashan Kundli is used to predict an event or answer a specific question. In Prashan Kundli, the astrologer creates a Kundli for the exact time and place when the question is asked. The time of the query is considered significant because it is believed that the energy and vibrations at that specific time contain information related to the question. The event’s prediction with Prashan Kundli is calculated based on the principles of KP astrology. KP astrology uses the Placidus house system and the ruling planet method, which assigns ruling planets to various houses and significators based on the specific question being asked.  Prashan Kundli provides insights and predictions regarding the question. Astrologers analyze the positions of the ruling planets, house placements, aspects, and other factors to predict an event.

Prashan Kundli is considered a valuable tool for gaining quick insights and addressing specific questions. It is particularly useful when the birth details of a person are not available or when an individual seeks immediate guidance on a specific matter.

Events can be predicted easily, and systematically using Prashan Kundli Method. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make predictions using Prashan Kundli

Frame the Question – The question should be clearly defined. It should be specific and focused to get accurate insights. Always advise the client for example, "Will I get a job within the next four months?" or "Will I get a promotion?"

The exact time of Query - Note down the exact time, date, and place when the question is asked. It's important to be precise as Prashan Kundli is based on this specific moment.

Create the Prashan Kundli - Using KP astrology software or manual calculations to generate the Prashan Kundli based on the time and place of the query.

Identify the Ruling Planets-Check or find the ruling planets, significators, Anterdasha (AD) and Pratyanter Dasha (PD) period also to calculate the time period the person asking for associated with the question. For example, if the question is about a job in the next 3 months, then along with the significator and ruling planet AD and PD periods which cover querent’s time period. For the job, we will see the 10th house (representing career) and its ruling planet.

The Planets Placements and Houses- Look for the placements of the ruling planets in the houses of the Prashan Kundli. Assess their strength, aspects, any benefic or malefic influences, and conjunctions with other planets.  

Consider Time Frames: In KP astrology, time is divided into sub-periods ruled by specific planets. Evaluate the current sub-period ruling planet and its position in the Prashan Kundli. This can provide insights into the timing of the event.

Interpret the Chart and Make Prediction- Combine all the information gathered from the Prashan Kundli and make a prediction based on your analysis, regarding the event or question asked

Remember, astrology is a complex science, and it requires knowledge, experience, and intuition to predict an event. It's advisable to study and practice KP astrology to gain proficiency in making predictions using Prashan Kundli.
