The system of calculations and computations for Peyar Raasi are different. If a person uses the same set of rules as those of normal predictive natal astrology, then things can go wrong.
For instance, there is a branch of astrology that is known as Prasna Marga. This is calculated according to the time and direction of the questioner. It resembles natal astrology(normal run- of-the-day astrology). But the similarity stops there. You have to use different
formulae for this.
The astrologers who advise big politicians happen to know this. They are able to give very specific directives for specific questions.
But the astrologer has to be very tactful.
In around 400B.C. , the Persian Empire stretched between the Indus River and Anatolia(modern Turkey).
Xerxes, the Persian Emperor wanted to cross over to Europe and destroy the Greeks.
He did cross the Hellespont, which is a small sea which separates Asia from Europe. At
present the modern day Turkey surrounds the sea.
Xerxes went into Macedonia and several Greek states.
The Greek countries formed a confederation and decided to wage war on two fronts. One on land and one on the sea.
The Greeks were out-numbered many times over in army strength. More than 1 is to 50. And Xerxes sent a very large naval force. Xerxes was winning. He wanted to finish off the Greeks at sea also. The Greeks had only 300 ships against Xerxes's thousands of ships.
But the Greeks had a brilliant admiral who knew the seas around very well.
On the eve of the naval battle, Xerxes asked his royal astrologer what will the out-come of the battle be.
The wise astrologer answered, "To-day, O King, Great King, King of Kings, will see a great empire fall."
Xerxes thought that it meant the Greek Confederation.
The Greek admiral arrayed his three hundred ships within the Straits of Salamis. The Persian ships in thousands started pouring in .
Xerxes ordered the royal canopy to be erected on top of cliff overlooking the Straits of Salamis. He wanted to have a grand-stand view and witness the final destrucion of the Greeks.
But there was a freak storm and the Persian ships which were close to each other were dashed against each other.
In addition, the Greek admiral who knew every nook and cove of Salamis attacked skillfully.
Almost all the Persian ships were destroyed in front of Xerxes's very own eyes.
On land, Xerxes lost a further 80,000 men. Xerxes was hotly pursued and barely managed to cross over to Turkey in tattered clothes.
Just as the Royal Astrolger predicted, one great empire did fall on that day of the Battle of Salamis. That was the Persian Empire.
