Kala Chakra has considerable similarities with Kota Chakra (which we have covered earlier in details). Whereas Kota Chakra is for checking planetary positions in transit, Kala Chakra is for horary or prasna charts – which in other words, is almost synonymous with the transit charts. Both of these two Chakras are based of 28 Nakshatra-system (including the tiny tot Abhijit).
In Kota Chakra, the starting point (the nakshatra of commencement) is 'variable'; it depends on the Janma-Nakshatra (the Nakshatra occupied by the Moon at Birth). But in Kala Chakra, the starting point is 'fixed'; it always commences from the Nakshatra Rohini (Nakshatra No.- 4) and ends with the Nakshatra Krittika (Nakshatra No.- 3).
Besides, another special difference is to be noted. In Kota Chakra, the numbers in the chart directly correspond to nakshatra-positions (as per 28 Nakshatra-system); but in Kala Chakra, this correspondence is indirect – although the order of succession is regular zodiacal as usual – in the same clockwise direction. In Kala Chakra, the indicated numbers are actually the 'serial numbers'; and the 'serial number' of a planet is obtained by adding 25 to the nakshatra number (as per 28 Nakshatra-system) it is occupying, and expunging 28 from it whenever the sum exceeds 28.
In Kota Chakra, the entry paths are along its diagonals – from the edge towards the center; and the exit paths are along the vertical and the horizontal dividers – from the center towards the edge. But in Kala Chakra, the entry paths are along the vertical and the horizontal dividers – edge towards the center; the exit paths are along its diagonals – from the center towards the edge. … In Kota Chakra, the commencement is from the top left hand corner – whereas in Kala Chakra, the commencement is from the middle of the top. In both the cases, it lies on the entry path; and from this, the exit and entry paths follow alternately in the same zodiacal direction.
In Kota Chakra, importance is given to the two planets – who become the 'Kota'-Swami and 'Kota'-Paala; and if Moon has exchanged sign with a planet, then the Moon is also given importance as the 'gouna' (or secondary) 'Kota'-Swami. … But in Kala Chakra, importance is given to the serial numbers (positions) of three nakshatras – of Prana, Deha, and Mrityu. In addition, three similar other positions are also given importance; these are – Mandi, Transit Sun, and the Birth Moon.
Besides, observations from the movement of 'Yogini' and 'Mrityu' in Kala Chakra are considered to be of great importance. The rising points of Yogini vary depending on the Weekdays (Vara) and also the Lunar days (Tithis). If Yogini's aspect falls on the Arudha Lagna (or Horary Ascendant obtained by Random method) or the Janma-Lagna (Birth Ascendant) or the Janma Rashi (Moon), then it is considered very inauspicious, and some unfavorable results are likely to be the outcome.
Kala Chakra is an important tool for ascertaining the prospect of health and wellbeing of a person – for whom the horary (prasna) chart is cast. If the query is of a serious nature and the querent puts the question with sincerity and honest intentions, then the answer obtained in respect of the possible outcome will surely prove to be perfect.
