                                          Chandra Kalanala Chakra
This Chakra is used to assess gains and losses, comforts and victory or subjugation on given day. 28 Nakshatras including Abhijit are used here. The location of Janma Nakshatra vis-à-vis the transiting Moon Nakshatra will give the result. This Chakra is mainly used in ‘Prashna’
  • The chart is constructed in the shape as shown the diagram below.
  • The Transiting Nakshatra in which the Moon is posited is placed at the centre prong of upright trident (No. 1)
  • The remaining 27 Nakshatra including Abhijit should be placed in order (clockwise) as shown in the diagram.
  • The results are tabulated for different placement of Janma Nakshatra vis-a-vis Transiting Moon’s Nakshatra

Normal Method
 If Janma Nakshatra is posited in different parts of diagram, the results will be as follows:
  •  Any of the tridents: Highly inauspicious.
  •  Outside the circle: Average results.
  • Inside the circle: Auspicious results.
Second  Method
  •  If the Prashna Chart, Moon Nakshatra is posited in 8th, 15th & 22nd Nakshatra from native’s Janma Nakshatra (No. 1) the answer to query will be negative.
  •  If the Prashna Chart Nakshatra of  Lagna Lord  is posited in 8th, 15th & 22nd Nakshatra from native’s Janma Nakshatra (No. 1) the answer to query will be negative.
  • The result thus obtained will fructify within 72 hours from Prashna time.

    i tried chandra kala tech for prasna purpose for my prospectus in overall life in general. i asked prasna on nov 11, 2011 , bangalore, 7, 22 pm. the readings are as follows natal jnma nakshtra aslesha, transit moon krtika so 22nd. transit lagnesh mercury is located in the nakshatras jyeshta from the moon’s nakshatra (janma aslesha),its 10 the from aslesha so average result. also Outside the circle: Average results.
    is it correct understanding and is the time period for this prasna is limited to what days

      Period of validity is Moon’s stay in one Nakshatra.

    Time of Prashna should be the time when the plane lost contact i.e.the last radio transmission and the position of aircraft should be taken as POB. You can get this from Google maps.This method gives Yes or No answers only. Remember this.

    Is it cast on Birth date and then transit moon is applied ? in Jhora it seems like that. How to apply it?

    In the last para about the second method, 2nd statement is a repetition of the 1st statement. Kindly correct it, so I can understand it better. Thanks in advance.

      There is nothing to correct and I request you to read the paragraphs carefully and patiently.
      In first para it is Moon’s Nakshatra and in second para it is Lagna Lord’s Nakshatra. Positions are same but reference Nakshatras are different.
