||Honourable legendary Astrologer and founder of Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan, Astrology Chapter, Mr. K. N. Rao, suggests every astrologer to analysis Kota chakra in every individual charts. There are some good books published under guideline of Mr. K. N. Rao.|
This chakra is useful for deciding on the outcome of illness, disputes, wars and troubles from opponents. The first nakshatra is the Birth Nakshatra. Transiting planets are placed in their respective nakshatras.
Originally, Kota Chakra was being used for divining the outcome of a war between two warlords – one is the Lord of the Castle and the other is the Invader. Enemy’s invasion is similar to raids (attacks!) conducted by punitive authorities, destruction of the castle is quite akin to fall of the ruling government, and the outcome of a dispute or lawsuit – in a way – has some similarities with the outcome of war; thus, Kota Chakra can be effectively used for these purposes – besides finding out the periods of sufferings owing to physical and mental disorders, duration of stressful periods, possibility of recovery, etc.
It should always be borne in mind that Kota Chakra only deals with the nakshatra-position of planets in transit – with reference to the Nakshatra-position occupied by Moon at Birth. As the effects of operating directional influences (Dasha-Bhukti, etc as per popularly used Vimshottari Dasha, Dasha-systems like Char Dasha, Yogini Dasha, etc – if the person will well conversant with use of these) are of much more significance than those of transiting planets. The effects (favorable or otherwise) can be expected to materialize only when the transit influences are perfectly in agreement with the operating directional influences.
