Q3. What is Graha Arudh, how is their motion and how to use in Prashna? Question by R.C.Srivastava, Agra. Shri Suresh Mishra: Parashara advocates Arudh or Padha of a house as well as of a planet, for reading a chart, is a must to consider. All rules for fixation of Bhava or Graha Arudha are similar in their application. (Elucidated in our book Panchadhyayee) Arudha of a Graha is located as many houses away from its own rashi, as the own rashi itself is from the rashi lord. If a planet owns two rashis, it is mainly applicable to the stronger rashi, states Parashara. But in Prashna, it is to apply to seven planets and all twelve houses. Considering the Sun in Makara, the rashi Simha happens to be eighth from the Sun. Hence Sun’s Arudha rests in Meena falling eighth from Simha. A planet or house responsible for the content of Prashna is auspicious, fructifying in favour and disbursing desired effects when it is in a Kendra, Trikona or Labha at the time of Prashna. Q4.
