Prashn Charts (Horary Chart, Time Chart)
See also Prashn Method of Prediction
Prashn Chart is known as Horary Chart or Time Chart also, as this chart is based on the time of the asking a question taking it as the Lagna (Ascendant). Prashn chart is drawn with the time when the Prashn (question) is asked by the querist. What are the planets' position at that time and then it is interpreted.

(as in KP System)
Stanza 47. As Prashn Lagna is similar to Janm Lagna, all events should be read from Prashn as you would do from a natal horoscope.
The sum and substance of
these three stanzas is that the time of question (Prashn) should be given
the same importance as the time of birth. Human births are regulated
according to the law of Karm and hence the time of birth is significant.
Similarly a person proceeds to an astrologer to ascertain his future
prompted by a Divine force and hence the time of question is equally
important. There are no doubt certain points of difference in reading
Prasna charts and horoscopes. They are discussed by the author in their
proper places. But unless otherwise implied, all events revealed in a
horoscope can also be read from a Prashn chart. The principles given in
this book may be used with advantage in studying horoscopes.
Books by BV Raman like
Prashna Tantra, Prashna Marga 2 vols, Hora Shastra of Varaah Mihir etc are
good to start with.
