  2. Hi: Thanks anoop ji for writing such useful articles.
    I want to as you that if rahu is in 1st house in capricorn than still it is good placement to win over enemies? as ketu in 7th is the reason for winning over enemies?

    • Hi,
      Ketu is in seventh house, so will give impact of seventh house, and will be different, Traveling, possibility of loosing money, theft etc, a cunning person, expectation from spouse may be more or high and may not treat properly with spouse etc.
      But Ketu of Scorpio, may give better results.
      Importantly, conjunction, aspects or other factor will give indication of intensity of promise.

      • First of all, I will suggest you to rotate or use Nakshtra in D-1 chart, and regarding D-9 chart see in a normal way. No Yog will be worked out in Divisional charts, we prefer to see concern areas with the divisional charts. Asc., and concern house and lord, aspect, sign in which they are placed, plus we also see karkansha lagna (Means placement of AK of jamini), there are other aspects also, but all can not be explained like this.
