Remedial measures

Calendars is signature of time  and the shows the arrow of time in all the three dimensions - past, present and future. A nomadic tribe in  Afghanistan does not have a calendar. Only two incidents mark the differences in their lives - the winter, when they climb down the mountains and  the summer when they go up hill along with their animals. They need not have to plan anything at all and hence there no need of a calendar. They throw away their dead in the icy rivers.  They do not have history, culture (samskara), purana or anything to identify with. Calendars give inheritance and also identity crisis. In my younger days, Yagnavalkya and Maitrei samvada (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad) was enchantingly delightful. I perceived, I belong to the culture of this great rishi.  Then, one day I discovered Yagnavalkya, the eater of soft flesh of cows!  The source can not be disputed - I discovered this through the works of Sanskrit maha mahopadyaya, supreme court lawyer Shri Kane, in his books History of Dharmasutras!

My grandfather wore uattariya and dhoti; he never forgave my father for giving up Brahmanism by wearing shirts, pump shoes and Mysore peta (cap). I identify with my linage but do not wear uttariya, pump shoes or peta. My grandfather proclaimed, there were neither a drunkard, a meat eater, a thief or a cheat in my linage. Of course, there were some references to my ancestors' penchant in eating [ब्राह्मणो भोजन प्रियः - Brahmin likes eating.  There are other versions:  ब्राह्मणो बहुजन प्रियः and  ब्राह्मणो बहु जनप्रियः].  When you say, I  belong to the linage of these purohits - the incarnates of honesty, dignity and devotion, I feel immensely happy.  But when you say,  I belong to the linage of  Yagnavalkya, the meat eater, I am at unease. Yet, Yagnavalkya and maitrei belong to me!  We have given up meat eating since my great great and the greatest grandfather's time. By the way, the liberals quote from selected works only.  There are several dharma sutras that lay down meat eating as improper. The liberals obviously suffer selective amnesia. Gregorian calendar causes schizophrenia in me. Am I a British to follow the calendar of our former colonial rulers, who still have not given up their pounds and gallons for kilograms and liters? The national calendar is chandramana and the national gazette only uses this date. Hindus take birth and live the whole life in Gregorian calendar. The first death anniversary is on shukla paksha dwiteeya, kartika masa and not on 24th November! Paradox - Eye specialist can not see.

National pride is not reflected in celebration of New Years Day.  There is nothing inappropriate in a "Happy New Year" but let us not forget to wish each other on Ugadi too. You can not close your windows, even if you are a fundamentalist or a Marxist. Culture too blows like wind across Atlantic to Asia. There are always cultural collisions, modifications and mutations.  Like the British, let us be proud of our culture, let us not forget  Tol, Sr, Ratti and Ugadi. I would not brag, I practice vedic astrology!  I am engaged in study of Vedas since my childhood. Several times I have gone through Atherva and many mandalas of Rigveda. Nowhere, I could find references to predictive or election astrology. Use of astrology was restricted to fixing the dates festivals, though there are mentions to predictive astrology and muhurta in puranas.  That means, predictive astrology is not vedic! To be a religious Hindu, you need not have to believe in astrology, it is not a part of vedanga.  Vedanga jyotishya is a calendar with solar months like madhu, madhava etc.,!  Let world famous astrologers in Delhi, Noida and Bangalore say, they practice the sacrosanct vedic astrology (Lord Vinayaka bless their ignorance). Generally, astrology is laced with fatalism. Birth of Jesus is linked to the prophecy, 'This was to fulfil the passage in Prophet Isaiah' (Mathew 4:14).  Ashariravani revealed to Kamsa that the 7th child of his sister would kill him! But the great Greeks were not to accept such fatalistic view and maintained "astra inclinant, non necessitant " (star incline, do not determine). Be Greek heros and not fatalistic ravens. Like school children who have certain restrictions yet are free within the school compound, we are free and also governed by the environment, indicated by the planets. फलानि ग्रहचारेण सूचयन्ति मनीषिणः। को वक्ता तारतम्यस्य तमेकं वेधसं विना॥ - फलदीपिक  "With the help of planetary movements, mortals can only give indications of what is to happen; who else other than BRAHMA can tell with certainty as to what will definitely happen" - Phladeepika. Only God almighty knows for certain and astrological analysis is mere human effort to understand infinitesimally huge uncertainty. Remedial measures help us to improvise on the given birth but will not altogether change the life.

On the last day of the year, mid night strikes and no star falls from the sky leading to Bethlehem. Men and women, without reservation loaded of alcohol are on the ground and nobody is awake when the new year chimes. Mundane charts in ancient India are done for lunation - Hindu month is not merely a numbered day but a day that lives with phases of moon. When poornima (full moon) does not occur in the month, the moth is extended and when poornima happens early, it is cut short. The corrections are done every month and not once in four years as in Gregorian colander.

There is always a misconception created by the popular astrologers on TV that eclipses shadow you down and create havoc. Some astrologers even predict good luck due to eclipses -"ಲಾಭಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ರಹಣ ಆಗಿದೆ. ನಿಮಗೆ ತುಂಬಾ ಧನ ಲಾಭ" [The eclipse is in 11th, you will have lot of money"- yells a Kannada channel. In the astrological classics, no where such results are mentioned. There are another set of scientists who force food down my throat to prove one can dine and wine during eclipse. There is of course, a class of people who abstain food during eclipse. In case you do so on religious grounds because you have to give tarpana, the scientist flocks in all colours like kencha, kariya or the western biliya have no say in that. If you are afraid that eclipse will poison your food, I should say, there is no iota of truth. Similarly, the effects of eclipse are felt only for a few days and then they disappear. Some accidents - like your dress catching fire, could be quite distressing. Eclipses can tarnish your image and cause humiliations. But they simply can not over rule your dasha / bhukti or transit, they will not snatch away your plate of meals. So, four times this year, the two sets of people say the same things again and again and create much noise. Much ado about nothing!  The rituals are observed only if the eclipse occurs in that part of the world, whether physically visible or clouded.  Total lunar eclipse on 31.01.2018 (16:21 to 21:39 IST) occurs in Cancer in pushya and aslesha stars. Partial solar eclipse on 11.08.2018 also occurs in Cancer in Aslesha star. The lunar eclipse on 31.01.2018 is visible in India. Partial solar eclipse on 16.02.2018 happens in Aquarius, dhanista star. Partial solar eclipse on 13.07.2018 is witnessed in Gemini in punarvasu star. Total lunar eclipse on 27.07.2018 (22:44 to 04:58 of 28th) is visible in India and happens in uttarashadha and sravana stars situated in Capricorn.

It is obvious, you should not to look at the eclipse directly with naked eyes, you are off guard when the bight light will flash into your retina, causing damage. Suppose you know the exact end time and you watch is not deceptive, you just can have a direct look.  Well, nothing happens - I have done that in my college days.  The eclipses are used to measure the bent of space (gravitational pull), density of constituent gasses on the planets, surface temperature, speed and vacillation. Infringement of light occurs when a light source is obstructed - the resulting light is broken into various light rays of different frequencies, that was the hot topic in 70s. Not much research is done in this field. 

Food for thought - "Convulsive thresholds were measured in 26 psychiatric patients who were receiving electroconvulsive treatment and in 8 rats subjected to electroconvulsive shocks, during the recent total solar eclipse day (February 16th, 1980) and on control days. Our results showed that there was a significant reduction in the convulsive thresholds of both humans and rats at the time of solar eclipse, probably occurring due to the observed geomagnetic field variation of 19 Gammas". [M.S.Keshavan, B.N.Gangadhar, R.U.Gautam, V.B.Ajit &  R.L.Kapur;  Neuroscience Letters Volume 22, Issue 2, 10 March 1981]. "Both the quantitative and qualitative variations in the airspora were observed during different phases of the eclipse. The number of fungal colonies were higher during the pre- and post-eclipse phase. There was a decrease at contact phase, total/partial or diamond ring eclipse phase. Thus, very minor changes were observed during the eclipse period. Bacterial colonies were higher at the post-eclipse phase. Most of the fungal species are organic matter decomposers, while some of them are known to cause allergies in humans and also cause plant diseases. Aspergillus species were dominant. Both A. fumigatus (causing allergy and asthma) and A. flavus (producing aflatoxin) were the dominant species and they showed a definite trend in their occurrence". [Microorganisms collected during a solar eclipse in India - Jayashree Deshpande & Laxman V. Gangawane; Aerobiologia December 1997].

There are fasting and rituals associated with eclipses. It is advised to be on empty stomach, you will stop eating and drinking (the beverages and juices, water exempted) 3 hours before start of eclipse. Some people start  fasting for 9 hours or 12 hours before eclipse. Three hours is reasonable considering present day life style.  As the food prepared earlier to eclipse is discarded, you should ensure that your fridge is empty.  After eclipse you will have a full bath - head to toes and put light in pooja room.  When the eclipse is in progress water also is not taken.  Little children, patients and old persons are exempted due to inability. Liberated scientifically advanced souls claim immunity! After the eclipse the house and house hold articles as well as clothes that were on the body are washed.  If the eclipse has occurred in your rasi or in 6th, 8th or 12th from your rasi or in your star, then you should recite mantras (any simple mantra will do) for ravi or chandra, depending on whether it is Solar or Lunar eclipse. You may also recite mantra for your favorite God (Istadaiva) or use any mantra, instead. Eclipses have effect on your mind and moods than physical body - suppose you eat, drink and dance, you may not find any noticeable effect, immediately. The effects of eclipses are very short lived, that will not override the influences of your natal chart. We can also use this time for mantra siddhi (perfection), take a mantra and recite during eclipse.  If you want to test the effect of of eclipse of mind, just keep quite and observe your thoughts - you will have sound proof. In my younger days, I used to take advantage of eclipses to recite mantras.

Reputed pulmonologists at Buffalo Hospital told that the young boy needs to take medications on daily basis and additional ones when he has spasms. Parents were about to start the treatment but the wise old grandfather prevailed. The refrigerator was shut down, the boy ate and drank only fresh things. He would not eat outside.  Now, the boy is great singer, he can sing continuously for an hour.  Of course, refrigerators preserve food efficiently but we know not of harmful side effects, due to temperature variance. Research into this area may harm refrigerator manufacturers. Research on effects of eclipses on humans will saffronise the country and will render greatest harm to our secular credentials!  Consider recitation of your favorite mantra during eclipse - it is a worthy try.        ...............As Jesus said this, He called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." [Luke 8:8].

Combustion of a planet is caused due to nearness to Sun and combustion is deemed to be bad at it would rob away the effects of the planet. Uttara Kalamrita says, " (Natural) Benefic planets if combust, lose their potency, while (natural) malefics become more mischievous. Retrogression merely causes status quo  - it freezes the scenario while result of combustion varies, depending on the role of Sun in the chart. During this year, Mars is retrograde from 27.06.2018 to 26.08.2018.  Jupiter is retrograde from 10.03.2018 to 10.07.2018.  Venus and Saturn are retrograde  from 06.10.2018 to 15.11.2018  and from 18.04.2018 to 05.09.2018, respectively. Mercury being near to Sun will suffers combustion most frequently (23.03.2018 to 14.04.2018; 26.07.2018 to 18.08.2018; 17.11.2018 to 06.12.2018. In the entire year, Saturn transits in Sagittarius while Rahu and Ketu transit in Cancer and Capricorn respectively. Jupiter transits in Libra till 11h October and thereafter moves into to Scorpio. At the beginning of the year Mars is in Libra and traverses into Pisces towards the end of the year. During the year 2018, eclipses occur in Gemini, Cancer (there are two eclipses in this sign), Capricorn and Aquarius. 

Wish you happy new year

In the chart made at the start of Ugadi of Vilambi nama samvat that begins on 17.03.2018 18.41 IST at Delhi, we have ascendant lord Mercury in the 7th along with luminaries and Venus.  Exalted Venus cancels the debilitation of Mercury, at this cost, Mercury and Venus have rapt conjunction.  That means the power of Venus to give fruitful results as 9th and 2nd lord is restricted while the power of Mercury as ascendant and 10th lord is redeemed. Fortunately, Mars and Saturn in the 4th have considerable distance between them. During the year 2018, the ruling party will fall into the hands of the opposition, it is able to dictate terms to the ruling government in various ways. As the debilitation of ascendant lord (who is also 10th lord) is cancelled, the ruling government has some face saving mechanisms.  In the election to come, the image of ruling party is tarnished and it has to put hard efforts to stay afloat. Luminaries, in this case the 12th and 11th lord in the 7th indicates that the wealth, investments and also expenditure is clouded with secrecy.  Statistics is liberally employed to prove a point and also to disprove.  The government will not make  good impact on the people.  The success it fosters is crowded in ambiguity. Democratic set ups like parliament will not function properly. But not often, government will use brute force against opposition which is obviously undemocratic with relentless enthusiasm and added to this the opposition parties behave like bandits and bandicoots.   At times, there will be some good developments and the government will make use of great rhetoric to outsmart the opposition. It is possible only at times, as guru is retrograde. This time, donations will flow more towards the opposition. There is always some annoyances by the neighbouring countries but that is effectively used by the government to kindle patriotism and also some fear. The war lord Mars in 4th implies there will be war like situation - border attacks and also the inimical countries use academics and opposition parties  for their advantages. There will also be some rifts within the ruling partners as Mars and Saturn are in 4th, but this will not cause any problem to governing.  Ketu in the 5th implies that the government will take some wrong decisions that causes harm to teachers, children and the investments as well as prestige will go down. It is usual that the intellectuals are divided but this year, they are not able to make any impact. The population will suffer rheumatoid arthritis and disorders of  throat, upper chest, lungs and the incidents of heard and brain cancer will shoot up. Universities at times become battlegrounds as two malefics Mars and Saturn are in the 4th house. There will be fire accidents, earthquakes, forest fires and terrorist assaults  in South and Southwest regions of the country. Mars and Saturn in 4th is a potent dangerous combination for such episodes. As Jupiter aspects 6th, government will tackle the situation well. Nobody is religious - we merely worship Money God - in various forms.  There is no solution to vexed Ayodhya problem in sight during 2018. Press freedom is trampled at times by the government,  3rd lord himself is the 8th lord in the 4th.  Of course, you can not compare this to the atrocities of national emergency! These wrangles are bound to happen when smaller splinter groups want to play upstage - they have to create lot of noise and commotion, that India is not a safe country!  They do not know the situation in Syria, Turkey and Jordon.  No wealth is brought from Swiss banks not more black money unearthed. In such a conflicting scenario, the opposition gets stronger while the ruling party plays into the hands of the opposition, ascendant lord Mercury is debilitated in 7th.

For the Republic, Rahu bhukti of Moon dasha ends on 10-08-2018. Moon dasha till 09-09-2025 is the period of changes, great developments, winning over enemies and emotional problems. By the end of chandra dasha, the country will emerge as a strong stake holder in world scene. Till the end of Rahu bhukti, the opposition party leader will be going on making strange and insignificant remarks on the ruling party and policies and belittle himself - he is already microscopic. Fear of war and decay grip the air. But come Jupiter bhukti (10-08-2018 to 10-12-2019), religion, culture and consideration is in abundance. Ayodhya crisis may be solved through negotiations - a win-win situation for all. The issues will be deliberated with opposition and all the concerned parties concerned. With slight reservations from minorities, the issue will be settled forever. It is like claiming some inheritance, 8th lord Jupiter in the 7th. Also, the opposition will have even more health, it is reduced to ashes. Religious mentality, nationalism, moral values impact even court judgments. Courts may revisit the judgments such as decorum of national anthem. As Jupiter, the 11th lord is in 7th, the opposition will be coaxed and coerced. There will be some secret understanding between the ruling and opposition parties. Let you son-in-law be happy and so let my son also be happy, are the  principles of national justice! There will be general elections during Jupiter bhukti. The strength of ruling government will come down while the opposition slightly improves. Overall, the ruling party will repeat the story and through diplomacy will browbeat the opposition at every corner. But the congress is like phoenix, it would rise again, it takes years for the young leader to learn lessons and till 2025 congress will go downhill super fast! The heavy handedness of government with oppositions parties and media draws severe criticism during Feb. 2018. Parliament does not function properly. International humanitarian agencies express concern and warn the government to darn the socks. Financial front is bad and there is more of totalitarian approach for the problems during July and this leads to war or words.  The prestige of the government goes down and relationship with neighbors is strained.

Yes, you said something? Speak up aloud, do not be afraid (That is what I say to my daughter - my hearing is less than 70%!).  Now, you know why I do not receive mobile calls. I used to listen to shortwave (DXing) hours together since my childhood and hence tinnitus. You said, "Man, what are your credentials? Or did you make up the story?". I am not in research nor I can roll out statistics. Nor,  I do examine 24 charts in 24 hours to propound a new formula. Nor  I am wise in spherical astronomy or astrology.  I do not have any proficiency in mundane astrology. Nor I am world famous.  Daniel Craig and other Hollywood stars are not my clients. Nor Indian political bigwigs. I confess, one central minister of prominence had consulted me long back - I have a 'thank you' letter from his private secretary.  I would not show that letter without his consent - it is against professional ethics. This gentleman has not acknowledged consulting me or any astrologers in public. I am like any ordinary plumber, you find countless in street corners. Then, how do I describe myself? A humble astrologer of ordinary intelligence and infinitesimal knowledge but hard working, faithful and deeply religious - here in the web world, to make few coins. Shops, web sites, hospitals, schools and temples are here to make some business.  Have you seen a temple without a hundi (Money box)?

There is very little a common men like you and me, can do in national and international events. I am aware you have nothing to do with national events, it was just he curiosity. You are more concerned of your life and there is always room for improvisations.  So, let the show begin......... now

Show presented by astrovidya

By rasi (moon sign), I am not referring to your sun sign, i.e. sun's position in your natal chart.  Sun remains in the same sign for nearly 30 days. For example people born between 15.01.2014 to 12.02.2014 belong to the sun sign Capricorn. This method is followed in Kerala, in some parts of Tamil Nadu and Malabar as well as in portions of  North East India. According to Western astrology which does not consider precession of equinox (ayanamsha) people born between 22.12.2013 to 20.01.2014 belong to sun sign Capricorn. In Hindu astrology the transit effects are considered from the sign occupied by moon (nirayana position) at the time of birth, called rasi. On this page, the predictions are interpreted based on the cannons of Hindu astrology. English notations are used as the site has numerous readers in Latin America and  Western Europe.

Well, there is very little a common man like you and me, can do in national and international events. You are more concerned of your life and there is always room for improvisations. उद्दरेदात्मनात्मानम् नात्मानमवसादयेत्। आत्मैव ह्यात्मनो बंधुः आत्मैव रिपुरात्मनः॥ - 5, atma samyama yoga, Srimadbhagawad geeta.  [Let man raise by himself, let him not lower himself, for he alone is his friend, he alone is  enemy of himself]. Running after Shri Sriman,  Shri Srimathi, Durbash Chatri or Jugheads is futile! You are your own guru (durguru or sadguru).  As Jiddu krishanma murthy (truly, he is the enlightened and modest) implores to find your own truth. In present day world, it is not merely waste of time, it is wasting your soul and the venture is wrought with dangers. Do whatever possible by yourself, as laid down in your religion and ask for divine help. Remedial measures as mentioned for your moon-sign should be taken up.  Any shanti kriya need not be done every month nor in a particular temple or place. Shanti once in a year will suffice.  Intervention of priests should be kept at the minimum. ಗ್ರಹಗತಿಯ ತಿದ್ದುವನೆ ಜೋಯಿಸನು ಜಾತಕದಿ| ವಿಹಿತವಾಗಿಹುದದರ ಗತಿ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿವಿಧಿಯಿಂ|| ಸಹಿಸಿದಲ್ಲದೆ ಮುಗಿಯದಾವ ದಶೆ ಬಂದೊಡಂ| ಸಹನೆ ವಜ್ರದ ಕವಚ - ಮಂಕುತಿಮ್ಮ|| - DVG. [Does the astrologer change the horoscope? Trends happen as per natural procedures. Whatever the event, one should endure. Patience is the armor of diamond]. First of all, one should not commit sins - there is no excuse when a scholar kills his wife.  As T P Kailasam said, "All the world is the stage but there are no side wings to rest for a while!" If one is in difficulty, one look at the horoscope by an astrologer is ample. Then one should take up remedial measures seriously. There is no point in visiting all the world famous astrologers in Delhi, Noida and Bangalore.

Remedial measures for shani, guru, rahu or ketu are indicated for each moon-sign, if need be.  Such remedial measures should be taken up without any delay.

 If the eclipses take place in adverse signs from your moon sign,  remedial measures like rudrabhesekha, recitation of mantras for ravi and chandra is desirable. Special pooja for your ista or kula daiva will suffice. There is no need for महारुद्र महाकाळ कालभैरव राहु तथा केतुग्रस्त ग्रहण  विपत्विमोचन सकलश्रेष्ठ होम or any such elaborate measure.  Even if you do not take up remedial measures, no sky will fall down on your head, there will be some discomfort and some sudden snags for some time!

Placement holds the key!
