Prashna for lost articles

Prashna for Lost Articles
Most common query I get is related to the lost article and its subsequent recovery. I always use the method described in Daivajna Vallabha by Varaha Mihira. It has always given me extremely correct results and I recommend that budding astrologists try out this before foraying into complex methods.
I will give the planetary combinations as enunciated in Daivajna Vallabha in the succeeding paragraphs.
  1. The Lagna gives the direction, place and time of theft.
  2. Navamsha Lagna gives the nature of the lost article.
  3. The Drekkana of Lagna gives the form of thief.
  4. If Lagna and Navamsha Lagna is
      • Fixed signs – the stolen article is in the same place and a person known to the querist has stolen.
      • Movable signs – some external person has stolen.
      • Dual signs – Neighbour has stolen and the article has gone outside of the house.
  5. The direction where the stolen article has gone is to be told from the planet placed in the quadrants. If it is not possible, the direction is to be told from the sign of the ascendant. The distance is to be told from the number of Navamsha elapsed. This number will give the distance in Yojana. One Yojana may be taken roughly as equal to 8 miles.
  6. The caste, colour, qualities and form of thief will correspond to the nature of the strongest planet placed in the 7th house. If it is an odd sign and there is under aspect of a male planet, the thief is a male otherwise a female.
  7. The age of the thief corresponds to the planet in 7th House and these are Moon (Baby),Mars (Boy), Mercury (Teenager), Venus (Young man), Jupiter (Middle aged person), Sun (Old man) and Saturn (Very old man)
Combinations for recovery of lost article
  • Benefic in ascendant and aspected by another benefic.
  • Venus in the second house and Jupiter in the 12th house with a benefic in the ascendant
  • Full Moon in the ascendant or if there is a benefic in a Shirshodaya Rashi aspected by a benefic or if there is a very strong benefic in the eleventh house. Recovered quickly.
  • Benefic in the second, third, or fourth house or if the same be in the fourth, seventh and the tenth houses, the stolen article will be recovered without any doubt.
  • Full Moon in the ascendant and aspected by Jupiter or Venus or if benefics be placed in quadrants and Upachaya Sthana or if benefics be placed in the second and Upachaya Sthana.
  • Full Moon, Jupiter, Venus or Mercury is placed in the ascendant.
  • Benefics are placed in the seventh house.
  • Benefic in the 2nd or 3rd house from the ascendant or from the 4th house.
Combinations for non-recovery of lost article
  • If the ascendant of query falls in the sign of a malefic, aspected by a malefic.
  • If the 7th house falls in the sign Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius and these signs contain  their own Navamshas and if the 7th house is aspected by malefics or if Mars is placed in the 8th house in these Navamshas.
Author’s Note:
This is a basic and simple method and you should start with this before you proceed further.
There is no harm trying out this method for minor things you have lost / misplaced and compare the results obtained with the facts on the ground.
Happy hunting!!!

      my sis lost her laptop will she get it and where

      • Jyothishi December 1, 2022 at 21:11 #

        It pains me to say that people treat this site as “lost and found’ counter of a Department Store. There is no seriousness in asking for lost items and expecting answers without giving any information as date, time. place, circunmstances of losss and anyother useful information.
        Hence, I have decided that in future questions regarding lost articles be posted as per ‘Consultation Page’ and it will be a paid enquiry.

        Anything free in India is taken casually and as a joke.

        All those wanting answers for lost articles please route it as consulation questions and others referred via ‘Comment’ Column will be ignored.

    we are in great trouble please advice we believe in you pls

    • Jyothishi April 30, 2018 at 19:21 #


      This is not a case of lost article. You say somebody has taken it by cheating.
      I am afraid I am not in a position to offer any remedies. This is a civil case and
      please approach police.

    Respected Sir,

    it is a very nice n informative article. Thank you very much .
    If possible ,You may please clarify my doubt on the prasna timing.

    – In one of yr comments, it is mentioned that, time of the question is considered as Lagna Is so, then before asking /placing the question to a Divagna, can we see a generally good time ( like no visha galige, not a rahukala, , a good nakshtra, shukla paksha etc – this is basically hoping to get a favourable result !!!!

    – I mean, is this kind of ‘prefixing the timing of the question’ acceptable in Prashna shastra.

    Thanks n regards

      It appears that you want to have the cake and eat it too.

      This is not acceptable and unethical.

    • Jyothishi June 25, 2019 at 16:49 #

      It is too late and you are not even sure of time frame.

      Prashan indicates that finding them are remote.
      Look within the house itself.


      • Vikas June 25, 2019 at 17:37 #

        Thanks Sir !

    My wife seems to have misplaced 2 rings. Not able to find them after a house move. Can you check please if it is just misplaced or stolen? What’s place to search if misplaced? What’s thief’s description, if stolen?

    • Jyothishi September 3, 2022 at 18:51 #

      You people take these things in a casual way. You have not mentioned the date and time of event / noticed, how much time has elapsed etc. With no such inputs it appears the rings may not be recovered and an old genetleman is involved in the incident.

      • SJ September 3, 2022 at 21:08 #

        Apologies, was not aware of all details to be provided. We changed our house last Friday (26-Aug-2022) and while unpacking on Tuesday Morning (30-Aug-2022), my wife realized that she is not finding the rings. [She in fact doesnt remember when she packed it]. We have searched almost all the bags and still havent f0und the rings.

        • Jyothishi September 5, 2022 at 19:44 #

          While I appreciate your ignorance, too much time has elapsed and we cannot do anyrhing now. Prashna should be done ASAP within 24 hours. However the chances of recovery is remote.


  13. Latha September 23, 2022 at 10:52 #

    Sir one earring is missing from my purse on September 21, 2022 around 11 am I found only one ear ring…other is missing. Kindly check will I get back at home or lost outside?

    • Jyothishi September 23, 2022 at 12:21 #

      A boy is resonsible for this act and a person known to the querist has stolen. If at all it is recovered, it shhould be ebfore end October.
      Otherwise it will not be recovered.

  14. Dron Thakur October 31, 2022 at 00:30 #

    Thank you

    • Jyothishi November 1, 2022 at 13:40 #

      The theft has taken place with the help of house help (Maid) and her friend / husband. Since concerned plnets are Retro, recovery of items is difficult / unpredictable.
