To predict an event, it is required to have accurate date, time and place of birth. In case of inaccurate or uncertain birth times, misreported or unavailable or forgotten birth dates and situations where a birth time is hard to decide upon (related to objects, natural entities), it is difficult to make correct predictions.
In situations like these, we use horary charts. These charts are generally drawn for the moment when a question is asked and the chart then is utilized for studying and analyzing the specific situation or event that forms the basis of the question.
Horary astrology is the branch of astrology that deals with answering a question by studying the astrological charts set for the exact time and place of asking a question. In addition to this, a number is used to involve the spirit of the querent. This number determines the Ascendant position. After several research studies, Sri K.S. KrishnaMurtiji has found more fruitful results by using a number between 1 and 249, each number representing the sub division of the zodiac. More recent research studies added a new sub division (subsub) and the number range 1-2193 is also used. The casting and analysis of the chart using date, time, place and the number given by the querent is called KP Horary Astrology.
KP Horary astrology differs from the well-known natal astrology (using date, time and place of birth), which gives insight on the entire life of a person. Whereas, from a horary astrology chart, one can find the answer only to that specific question, that generated it.
