We have said that there are
3 Formulae in Horary.
They are Life Formula  Jeeva Sutra, Disease Formula  Roga Sutra and Death

Repercussions of the Three Formulae

If we get Disease Formula, it is medium. There may be blocks in the financial sphere, mental rut and physical affliction.

If we get Death Formula, it is very bad. Indicates increase of fear, disease, hindrance in profession and death.

Relationship between the Three Ascendants
The relationship between the Aroodha and the Udaya Ascendants are of prime importance.
If they are 6/8, stop the Horary or Prasna.
If they are 2/12, stop the Prasna or Horary.
If they are in trines or angles, it is Life Formula or Jeeva Sutra
If they are powerful, it is Life Formula.
If the Aroodha Ascendant is powerful and if the Udaya Ascendant is powerless, it is Roga or Disease Formula.
If the Udaya Ascendant is in the debilitation Sign or inimical Sign of the Aroodha lord, it is Mrityu or Death.
If the three Ascendants, Aroodha, Udaya and Chatra are in trines, Life or Jeeva is the result.
