Taurus (Brishabha)

After the willful exertions of Aries, there’s the spring in the step to venture into the ever growing fields of Taurus. Taurus marks my favourite time of the year, a time when life has turned seemingly green, the birds are singing in the whiffs and the breeze of the flower-perfumed air. The energy of Taurus is the fixed feminine expression of Venus, it’s all pleasure aboard. Taurus has many beautiful connotations being the second sign of the natural zodiac. Having hit the rejuvenile spring, manifestation is flourishing once again. Its Taurus’s innate desire to stabilise, unlike that of Aries, which...

In view analysis; George Michael

Another musical loss that makes me wonder if I should get the illustrator in and do a 2016 celebrity death list? Santa Claus, left Christmas day by taking Yog (Yours Only George) with him! With a music career spanning over 30 years! It seemed fated to be his ‘Last Christmas‘. I’ve revised his birth time from 6 am to 6.20 am. For the simple reason, that Rahu would conjoin the ascendant. Such a conjunction would follow him throughout the divisional charts (Vargas) just like the press and his unfortunate addictions to narcotics, which Rahu can be a significator of. Benefic...

Kala Sarpa Yoga

    Kala Sarpa Yoga arises when the two nodes of the Moon better known as Rahu and Ketu, encircle the seven planets. Rahu and Ketu are shadowy planets, which makes them karmically powerful when it comes to conveying the decisions of the Lords of Karma. The Nodes have been considered Mahaviryam (very powerful), Kiritinam (the crown), and Chandraditya Vimardanam (devourers of Moon and the Sun). Astrologically, Rahu and Ketu are ‘subjective’ planets that work on the inner realms of one’s being. Kala Sarpa Yoga can be formed when  Rahu and Ketu encircle the planets, which are in the 1st and...

Ashwini

Aswini: 0°00′ – 13° 20′ Aries Symbol: A horse’s head.

Ashwini is related to the initial impulse of spring when the primal energy emerges from dormancy. An overpowering fierce upsurge of divine energy has taken back its reign and supremely reestablished itself from its slumber. This initial impulse has started rejuvenating inert matter into energy and activity, bringing with it the start of transformative growth and...

The Chandra Yogas

  According to sage Parashara, the great quality of the Chandra Yogas is that they produce their results. Here’s an important Chandra Yoga, known as Adhi yoga or Chandra-Adhi Yoga, as mentioned by Parashara. Adhi Yoga The yoga appears when the benefic planets Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus occupy the 6th, 7th and 8th houses from the Moon. This yoga confers the native prosperity, health, status, governmental recognition and governance over opponents. There are seven different variations of Adhi yogas, and it’s not necessary that all three benefic’s mentioned occupy one house each. It would be desirable if all three benefic’s...

Gana (class or category) poruttham

Gana (class or category) Poruttham helps evaluate compatibility by categorizing the 27 Nakshatras into three groups as shown by the Nakshatra position of the Moon (Chandra). Briefly below there is a table of the Nakshatras, divided into three categories consisting of Gods (Deva), Humans (Manushya), and Demons (Rakshasa), each with 9 Nakshatras. I wouldn’t get particularly hung up on these labels. Gandhi had his Moon in a demon nakshatra, and Hitler had his Moon in a human nakshatra, each nakshatra constitute stages, which often manifests in ways that will help others and the individual. The technique used is for compatibility,...

The Seventh House – Yuvati bhava

The seventh house is opposite the 1st. The act of marriage takes us as far away as possible from who we are by ourselves: it is an agreement to live with, to accept, to love and to support someone who may be entirely different than yourself.
