Excerpts from Brihat Hora Sastra

Chapter 3. Stanzas: 61 onward

Add 4 Sign 13 degrees and 20 minutes of arc to Sun's longitude at a given moment to get the exact position of the all inauspicious Dhooma.
Reduce Dhooma from 12 Rasis to arrive at Vyatipat. Vyatipat is also inauspicious.
Add six Rasis to Vyatipat to know the position of Parivesh. He is extremely inauspicious.
Deduct Parivesh from 12 Rasis to arrive at the position of Chap (Indra Dhanus), who is also inauspicious.
Add 16 degrees 40 minutes to Chap, which will give Ketu (UpaKetu), who is a malefic. By adding a Rasi to UpaKetu, you get the original longitude of Sun.
