Prashna Kundali is a very important branch of Vedic astrology. Prashna means Question and Kundali means birth chart. So literally, it means birth chart of a question. Prashna kundali is basically the birth chart created based on the date & time when the individual asks the question.
Prashna Kundali is also used when the birth date of the person is not known. The person can still get answers to important questions of life. Not everyone of us knows our date of birth and time. Long back parents didn’t kept those records. But vedic Astrology have a way to analysis the birth charts of those individuals who do not know their birth details or are not sure whether they are correct or not.
In such situations, astrology makes use of Prashna Kundali. Its very popular because it can give surprisingly accurate answers to our questions without requiring birth chart.
Through prashna kundali, one can know whether an event will occur or not.
In Prashna kundali, a kundali is cast immediately when we ask the astrologer a question. The kundali of that question is known as the Prashna Kundali.
One important thing is, we should not ask a non serious question, or ask without true desire and intent then it will not give us the correct answer.
The difference between Prashna Kundali and Janma Kundali is While the prashna Kundali shows our ongoing karma, the Janma kundali is the result of our past karmas.
Determining Prashna :
Since moon is the karaka of the mind we have to look at moon to determine, what is the question in the mind.
• Look at the Moon’s placement in the horary chart.
• Find out the planets which are within +/- 2 degrees of the moon placed anywhere in the chart those planets will indicate what’s the query of the person is, also need to see the karaktawa of those planets and in which house those planets are placed in the chart.
• If there are no planet’s near the degree of moon take the Nakshtra lord of the moon and see where it is placed in the chart.
• The placement, their natural signification and house lordship will determine what is rambling in the mind of the native.
• check the transit of moon over natal planet and add the karaka tatwa of that planet.
