KP Astrology is an excellent Predictive Astrological method (Paddati) conceived and created by the modern-day Great Indian Astrology master late Prof. K.S. Krishnamurti. The full form of KP is Krishnamurti Paddati, and its foundation is a concoction of the finer points of Hindu and Western astrology. Among KP Astrologers and its users, it is regarded as the most accurate system of the present time. The methods of KP Astrology are pretty easy to learn and apply. Contrary to the classical Hindu astrology, KP system is pretty systematic and very well defined. However, For an Astrologer, we believe that it’s the sincerity and dedication in practice that helps in giving accurate predictions no matter which method he/she follows.
The Major Differences of Krishnamurti Paddati
- This system uses Placidus House system, based on which the cusps of all the 12 houses are calculated, and the cuspal degree denotes the beginning of a house/bhava like in Western System.
- In KP Astrology, it is preferred to use K.P. Ayanamsas rather than the Lahiri Ayanamsas, which is widely used in Hindu Astrology. The difference between these two Ayanamsas is about 6 arc minutes (Kala).
- The KP system uses Ruling Planets method as per which the RPs at the time of any desire or question, and its fructifications will always remain the same.
- KP system gives prime importance to the Nakshatras/Stars based division of the Zodiac.
- It further divides each and every Nakshatra/Star into 9 unequal parts, which is termed as ‘SUB’. This division is based on the Parashari Vimshottari Dashas Divisions System.
- Any planet in consideration, in its Dasha, gives results as per its Nakshatra Swami (Star-Lord) rather than of its own. For example, Mars placed in Rohini Nakshatra will give results as per the placement of Moon, which is the ruling lord of the Rohini Nakshatra.
- The significations of the houses/bhavas are primarily more important than the planetary characteristics.
- The KP Astrology system repudiates a few of the Hindu Astrology principles like divisional charts and yogas.
