Hi Ed,

I believe it would help if you think of the Krishnamurti sublords table as the table of Egyptian bounds. As to the rationale of the Krishnamurti sublords table, each of the 9 planets in Vedic Astrology is assigned to each of the 27 nakshatras as a "star lord" in the following sequence:

Ketu, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury.

The cycle repeats itself 3 times to cover all the 27 nakshatras. The star lord of each nakshatra determines the planetary period known as Vimshottari Dasha. As Simon explains, Krishnamurti's genius was taking the dasha-bhukti (main lord and secondary planetary period lord) division of

*time *and and turning it into a division of

*space*, but instead of calling them bhuktis, he called them sublords (which are divisions of space).

Every nakshatra has star a lord for the whole nakshatra and a sublord for the division of the nakshatra. Each sublord is proportional to its length to its span in the Vimshottari Dasha system:

Ketu 7 years, Venus 20 years, Sun 6 years, Moon 10 years, Mars 7 years, Rahu 18 years, Jupiter 16 years, Saturn 19 years, Mercury 17 years.

The star lord of every nakshatra is always its first sublord as well. So there is a good rationale for this division. It is more rational than the one for the Egyptian bounds.

I forgot to give the table of how Simon Chokoisky divides the houses into positive and negative. I have attached it.

Let me explain how I calculated the values of the sublord of the 1st house vs the sublord of the 7th house in the Turkey vs Italy football match. The 1st house is always the favourite (shown by the odds) and the 7th house always shows the underdog. The table from my previous post shows that the sublord of the 1st house is Venus, because the Krishnamurti sublords table shows so (Venus rules the space between 0.46.40 and 03.00.00 Sag). Mercury is the 7th sublord according to the table (it rules the space from 0 to 01.53.20 Gem).

All we have to do is compare the strength of the sublord of the 1st vs the sublord of the 7th house. Using the Krishnamurti-Chokoisky sublord 1 vs sublord 7 table for Turkey vs Italy and the table I have attached here that shows the values of the houses:

We see that Venus is the house lord of the 6th and 11th houses. This adds +1 and +4 (because there are no other planets in the house) points to it from Column A.

Checking Column B, we see that Venus is not related there, so we cannot add or subtract points.

Checking Column C we see that Venus is in the 7th, so we subtract - 3 points from its score.

Checking Column D we see that Venus is related to the 6th house, in the sense that it is in a Nakshatra ruled by the planets in the 6th Placidus house (no 5 degree rule) - Rahu, Mercury, Sun. Venus is at 17 Gem, or Ardra Nakshatra ruled by Rahu (from 6.40 to 20 Gem). Thus it gets +4 points.

Putting it together, Venus has 5 points from Column A, 0 from Column B, -3 from Column C and +4 from Column D =

+6 points to Venus, sublord 1.As for sublord 7 Mercury, we see that Mercury is the house lord of the 7th and 10th houses. This gives -1 and +4 (because there are no other planets in the house) points to it from Column A.

Checking Column B, we see that Mercury is related to the 5th and the 12th house, which means we subtract -4 for the 5th (only planets in Columns A and B) and -2 points for the 12th.

Checking Column C we see that Mercury is in the 6th house, so we add +3 points to its score.

Checking Column D we see that Mercury is related to the 7th house, in the sense that it is in a Nakshatra ruled by the planets in the 7th Placidus house (no 5 degree rule) - Moon, Venus, Mars. Mercury is at 25 Tau, or Mrigashirsha Nakshatra ruled by Mars (from 23.20 Tau to 6.40 Gem). Thus it gets -4 points to its score.

Putting it together, Mercury has +3 points from Column A, -6 from Column B, +3 from Column C and -4 from Column D =

-4 points to Mercury, sublord 7.**Summary: sublord of the 1st house = +6 vs sublord of the 7th house = -4 = +10 points to the favourite**It took me a while to write the calculation down, but in practice it is way quicker. Once the Krishnamurti sublords table is added and the values of the houses are input, the rest is dividing and subtracting.
