KP System is a modern system of Astrology invented by Prof. K S Krishnamurthi. K P stands for Krishnamurthi Paddhathi. In this system, Prof. KSK, who was also an expert in traditional Astrology speaks of a new concept - the theory of the sub lord. Each Nakshatra is sub divided into 9 parts, and these 9 parts are in the same proportion as the Vimsottari Dasha system allocation of time periods. So the 9 parts (9 sub lords) are not equal in length as in the case of Navamsa. So it looks like there is no connection between the Sub lord theory and traditional Astrology. In case you think so, here is the surprise. Watch the video to find the link between traditional Astrology and KP system. The link is your own Moon and the Vimsottari Dasa System.

In Astrology we can use logic to understand the effects of planets to a great extent. However sometimes we are bewildered at what the Maharshis of Astrology said about certain combinations. Sometimes the reason is obvious but sometimes not. In times like this we need to memorize the rule or keep referring a classical book or we may make a big blunder while predicting or reading a horoscope. So I decided to do a series on Strange but True and this one is the 1st episode of the long series. Let me see the reaction of my viewers on such a topic and if I get a good feedback I will do more of this in a short time. These kind of seemingly contradictory rules in Astrology make Astrology a fascination study.

We cannot do much with what we possess unless we have all the supports in place. We need help and assitance from various people. In the first part of our life we need to be helped by our siblings (brothers and sisters) in case there is a fight with your neighbors or other intruders. As you grow up you need servants, driver, maid, and a dog at home to assist you in safeguarding what you have earned and possessed. The 3rd house is the house of assistance. No businessman can do well without the "Employee Luck". Examine the horoscope of a rich businessman and you will surely see that his 3rd house is beneficial and strong. If the 3rd house lord is in the 6th house your brothers or sisters are likely to be of no use to you or may even give you lot of trouble and anxieties. The 6th house is the house of enemies. So your sibling may become your rival. The 3rd house is the house of communication. It rules your hands, your neck, ear, nose, throat. If the 3rd house lord is in the house of profession then you may be a great TV show performer or a journalist, or very good with electronics and communications.
