Nine birth stars thus have two KOORU each and this has to be taken into consideration while casting horoscopes. For example, Krithika is divided into four parts. Those born during first quarter will have Aries as KOORU and those born during the remaining three quarters will have Taurus KOORU.This problem will continue in the remaining eight also.

The division followed by westerners a Aries ,Taurus etc will not exactly corresponded o the Kooru of Kerala system since the former is arrived at by taking into account the date of birth whereas the latter is arrived at by looking at the star at the time of birth, the Birth star. The Indian system emphasizes the importance of the birth star and also correlates the positions of the moon, stars and the most important factors the sun including its planets. If western and Indian systems are compared, dispassionately, it will be proved beyond doubt that the Kerala system is much superior.

Why does one attach importance to astrological guidance? The answer is simple. Life is complicated with many pitfalls. Advance information about possible impediments helps one to plan future course. Astrologers do not claim absolute success since some problems may hit like bolts from the blue. But many hazards can be judiciously avoided and astrologers can generate a certain amount of self confidence.

Take for instance an agriculturist,industrialist or a senior officer in a major establishment. The predictions based on KOORU and planetary positions at a given moment can project in advance the course of events.

During the coming days. The astrologers point out the auspicious and inauspicious moments and periods. This guidance enables one to plan ventures and investments as well as travels and decision-making processes thus minimizing risk factors. One need not be as slave to astrology but timely warning and advises will be of immense help. Finer aspects cannot be ascertained from the horoscope alone. A detailed study of planetary positions on a given day correlated with the Kooru of the persons concerned will provide the required information.

A person who is not conversant with the birth star can have his or her’s Horoscope cast if the astrologers is informed about the date of birth also the latitude and longitude of the place where the birth has take place. The astrologer can with a good amount of accuracy, identify the birth star as well as the Kooru and then cast the horoscope.

Take the case of a person with Aswini as the birth star. Texts on astrology describes his characteristics as ‘intelligent, clever, honest, well behaved, fond of jewellery, having happy married life with children, qualified to be the head of the family (suggestive of having his own house). Aswini being part of asterim aswini-bharani and quarter phase of krithikam a person born within this asterim will have an urge to be constantly on travel , will have round beautiful eyes easily pleased disposition, romantic inclinations bordering on sexual promiscuity, week knees (physical handicap)fluctuating financial status, and a yes for leafy vegetables.

Charting the course of life on a daily basis for all those with particular birth stars taking in to account extraneous influences is beyond any astrologer. Influences of planets can produce good and bad effects. For malefic influences there are remedial measures as well: mostly Hindu religious rites, which may not be appreciated by non – Hindus. but there are two specific remedial rites which can be whole heartedly accepted by one and all irrespective of religious faith , and they are ;1.wearing specific jewels/precious stones,2.wearing clothes of particular colors.
