Articles on Astrology
TWINS & ASTROLOGY
The best method to examine would be to take 'astral twins' i.e. babies born to different people (where DNA are dissimilar, naturally) at the same time, and place.

WHY BIRTH TIME?
One of my learned readers has suggested that the vedas and Upanishads hold the key to rectification of birth time. In all the four vedas, I have not come across any rough or indirect reference to rectification of birth time.

SCIENTIFIC TEMPER
We should stop looking at our heritage, values and culture through the eyes of westerners. Let there be any scientific reason for achamana, shraddha or not, it is my way of life, my samskara, handed down for many generations.

SOCIAL RELEVANCE
The example of an auto driver who returned $2000 to the tourist- is deliberately brushed aside. He refused the gift saying it was his duty. You see, auto driver lacked worldly wisdom! One need not know all that are in the scriptures.

MATCHING
Manu smruthi catalogues various types of marriages including rakshasa vivaha (abducting the girl for marriage). Maharshi Manu has mentioned about single women and separated women but he does not classify types of divorces.

TRANSIT FROM MOON
Ready made Lees, Levis, Flying Machines or Sinking Ships will not fit as good as tailor made trousers. These general predictions are not substitute for individual analysis of the chart based on dasha / bhuktis, position and influence of all the planets.

PANCHANGA
NACCURACIES IN PANCHANGA - We Hindus conveniently adopt double standard. I will not take a donation of Rs.5 on amavasya but if I am offered Rs. 50000 will I refuse? Will the student skip the annual examination being held on amavasya?

PROPHECIES
PROPHECIES IN SCRIPTURES & PRACTICE OF DIVINATION - We met a slave-girl who was possessed by an oracular spirit and brought large profits to her owners by telling fortunes. She followed Paul and rest of us shouting ........

MORE PLANETS
Uranus takes 84 years, Neptune 168 years and Pluto 248 years and Sedna 10,500 years to go round the sun. This means these planets at most may (or may not) transit through two houses in one's lifetime.

FUTUROLOGY
ASTROLOGY, NUMEROLOGY, PALMISTRY & TAROT - As these subjects are not interdependent, it is not possible to peruse all at the same time for each one will take at least 10 years to master.

ON THAT DAY?
WAS NOBODY BORN ON THAT DAY? - Gajakesari yoga indicates possession of vehicles. A person born in the USA has private plane. The person under the same combination in the African countries would own a bicycle.

DOOMS DAY
The rationalists are convinced that with the cremation of the mortal remains, the story ends, there is no reincarnation at all. When a quark can retain / remember the information, can not a cluster of many molecules in my body remember and pass on to next janma?
