Mutual Exchange in Lal Kitab

Post by Khoo Hock Leong » Fri Feb 17, 2017 12:35 am

Hi Learned Members

Mutual exchange in Lal Kitab are known as ally planets. They work in tandem and full co-operation is rendered to each other.

Here is how it works (it is not by signs by the way, Lal Kitab only uses signs to guage the effect of the strengths of the planets only and not for the concept of dispositorship which is what it is all about when we talk about mutual exchange in Parasara kind of astrology; in fact Lal Kitab do not make use of bhavas either, it only talks about bhavas in relation to Aires as the first house, Taurus as the second house etc. but moder Lal Kitab practioners have brought in the concept of bhavas just like Parasara Astrology).

Each planet governs certain houses known as their fixed houses or permanent houses. Here is the list.

Sun permanent house is 1 (here 1 refers to Aires in traditional Lal Kitab as mentioned earlier, but in modern Lal Kitab 1 here refers to the 1st bhava as defined by Parasara Astrology, and so on for the other houses)

Moon permanent house is 4

Mars permanent house is 3 and 8

Mercury permanent house is 7

Jupiter permanent house is 2,5,9 and 12 (yes 12 and not 11)

Venus permanent house is 7

Saturn permanent house is 8,10

Rahu permanent house is 12

Ketu permanent house is 6

House 11 has no permanent planets. Thus the concept of mutual exchange does not arise for planets placed in the 11th house (see the definition of mutual exchange according Lal Kitab below).


The planet's permanent house is more powerful than its :

(1) exaltation house like Moon's exalted house is 2 or

(2) its significator house like Jupiter is the signficator of house 11 or

(3) its natural rulership house like Mars is the natural of house 1

So even though Mercury rules house 3 and 6 naturally, Mercury is exalted in house 6, Mercury is MOST POWERFUL in house 7 where it is its permanent house. (Mercury also happens to be the significator planet for house 7 in Lal Kitab).

Also a planet can assume as well two or more roles of natural ruler, significator, exaltation ruler and permanent ruler for a particular house. So, for examples, Mars is natural ruler of 8, is exalted in 8 (that is according in Lal Kitab, in Parasara Mars is exalted in Capricorn which corresponds to the 10th house) and Mars is also the significator planet of 8 (this again according to Lal Kitab, in Parasara Astrology Saturn is both the significator abd backup significator of the 8th house).

So bearing the above list of permanent houses for the respective planets in mind, the definition of mutal exchange is as follows :

Consider a planetary pair. If each planet is in the other respective permanent house, the pair of planets are said to be allies. For example, if Venus is in house 9 and Jupiter is in house 7, they are said to be allies. Thus notwithstanding Venus placement in 9th house and Jupiter placement in 7th house are considered in auspicious, the fact that both are in that respective houses making them mutual allies and VERY, VERY POWERFUL.

This concept of permanent houses has been used by Lal Kitab practioners for years, so use it for your analysis of horoscope with no qualms on the accuracy of the results of the analysis.

To give another example, if Jupiter is in House 7 and Mercury is in House 5, then there is an exchange between Mercury and Jupiter. 7th house is the permanent house of Mercury and 5th house is the permanent house of Jupiter. Even if Jupiter is in House 12, with Mercury remaining in house 7, there is still a mutual exchange, because Jupiter is also the permanent ruler of House 12.

Best Regards
Khoo

In Lal Kitab when 2 natural enemy planets like Venus and Jupiter have mutual exchange, they become very good friends, even more so than the mutal exchange in Parasara Astrology. The latter only implies close co-operation but the lingering antagonism of the planets towards each other is still there, chiefly due to the fact that the planets' temperament are different and the planets' temperaments are given more weight in Parasara Astrology through the signs they rule and their own natural significations. Note in this example Jupiter has no enemies and is not antagonistic towards Venus as all of you know.

Note that the conept of dusthanas apply equally well to the Lal Kitab version that makes use of bhavas (the one which we are currently talking about). So a mutual exchange between a duthana with a non-dusthana would spoil the results of the non-dusthana etc.
