About The Author

Shri Krishan Rajesh Chaudhary has mastered and contributed to the Systems' Approach for Interpreting Horoscopes under the guidance of his father, Shri V.K. Choudhry. He participated in the free Consultation Clinics organized in New Delhi by Bharat Nirman, in 1995. He is one of the Directors and Secretary of the Systems' Institute of Hindu Astrology, Gurgaon (India). Delhi Astro Study Circle (Registered) New Delhi, conferred the honorary title of Jyotish Martund on Shri Chaudhary in 2011. Indian Institute of Oriental Heritage, Kolkata, India, conferred Life Time Achievement Award on Shri Chaudhary in March, 2014.

Shri V.K. Choudhry has gained wide recognition as the creator of the "Systems" Approach" as applied to the interpretation of Horoscopes and Divisional Charts. The development and use of this brilliant simple technique not only demonstrates the universal application of valid classical principles of Vedic Astrology but also clears up numerous confusions, contradictions and inconsistencies prevalent in the classical literature. This has indeed been one of his most valuable contributions to the science of Astrology.


The impact of Rahu and Ketu is a key analytical factor in the interpretation of horoscopes. Whenever the chart is brought up for interpretation, the analysis starts with the impact of the functional malefic planets and especially that of Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu become the key factor as they can impact six houses and the planets placed therein, if the placement of Rahu and Ketu is on or close to the most effective points of the houses of their placement. This placement can bring frequent challenges in life and threatens longevity. The close impact of Rahu on otherwise strong planets brings ambitiousness, greed, recklessness, short lived materialistic prosperity, incidence of addictions and medication.

Rahu and Ketu become more difficult during their sub periods when either of them or both of them are placed in the malefic houses.

When Rahu is exactly conjunct and Ketu exactly aspects a planet, the impact of both afflicting planets is simultaneous. Rahu clouds things and gives confused and selfish thinking. Ketu gives painful sufferings.

When a person is in trouble and seeks an astrological consultation, the astrologer must explain the situation based on the planetary influences seen by him/her. Sometimes people who seek consultation feel there is too much negativity in the explanation. This is not so. It should be accepted in a positive manner, recognizing that challenges exist in the birth chart and by following the astrological remedial advice, people can benefit and come out of difficult situations. Sometimes it may take comparatively longer to come out of more difficult situations.


"Hitting the Bull's Eye", in making a precisely correct prediction, has always been a cherished goal of Neo- astrologers, experienced astrologers as well as of real Jyotisha Acharyas. Different classical works while working on the same concepts, have worded their ideas by using different phrases and sometimes leaving or adding one or the other components in the concept or ideas. Sometimes inappropriate or incomplete translation has proved an obstacle in clarity of ideas.

Learned authors father and son duo, Sri V.K. Choudhry and Krishan Rajesh Chaudhary, are MBAs and it is natural for them to make an attempt to put rules of delineation under a defined system, leaving virtually neither room for deviation nor for evolution of different perceptions.

They rightly believe that planetary strength diagnosis is important to give appropriate advice and to find appropriate remedial measures. They have given several parameters to adjudge their strengths and amongst several methods also referred to Baladi Avastha.

The authors take very close conjunction and aspect etc. within orb of one degree, close conjunction etc within orb of 5 degrees and wider orb of conjunction as more than 5 degree on either side. In case of very close conjunction of Rahu with other planet afflicted by Rahu, problems manifest either in the first sub period of Rahu or first sub period of afflicted planet; in case of close conjunction etc., similarly, in middle period and in case of wider one, the impact is felt only in old age. Learned readers may, on examination, find it helpful. Physical ailments are more pronounced in case of weak and ill-placed lord of the Ascendant.

Affliction of every planet caused by Rahu is discussed summarily. Rahu is legendary master of deception, a diplomat and has unfathomable insight in secrets of secrets; and leads to immense heights, if (a) placed in places other than 6th, 8th and 12th houses; (b) its dispositor is strong; and (c) unafflicted in natal chart as well as in Transit. Otherwise, one can imagine.

The authors have discussed impact of Rahu and Ketu in different houses; their Das-Antara results and impacts on natives in appropriate details.

They have surely done a commendable job by defining numerous important terms but named them slightly differently. I appreciate their insight on laying emphasis on identification of Natural and Functional Benefics and Malefics; Special impacts of Rahu and Ketu; Afflicted planets and houses; Afflicting and Afflicted Planets; the Most Effective Point of a House; Strong and Weak Planets; the Most Benefic and the Most Malefic Planets.

One of the most interesting concepts is: Sun Like Planet. While developing the concept, special importance has been given to the lords of the second, third and ninth houses; the premise is that if these houses are not owned by the Sun himself, their lords would give as good result as the Sun would give.
