Grahan (Eclipse in August 2017) - Karma and BhagwadGeeta

Grahan (eclipse) in Astrology are overrated and the frenzy around them causes simple law of karma to be ignored. Yes they are important and especially when right now Shani and Rahu are in INTENSE Navamansh and "Rashi-Gandant". So folks who have planets in the last degrees of Vrishchik, Vrishabh and Makar and also Singh (Scorpio, Taurus Capri and Leo) will see effects of grahan a lot more. As it is happening in Kirk/Singh border it is in the 8th house of Dhanu and Makar border -- so it will impact the last Uttarashadha nakshatra first and second navamansh the most. Similarly, it is in the 12th house border of Singh (Leo) & Kanya (Virg) so it could show some expense and negative publicity-image etc to them.

Simple(?) law of karma told by Bhagwan Krishna should not be forgotten in the process. Nothing happens without karma.

Trump has Surya in the last 3 degrees of Taurus Vrishabh and Shani is now opposite to his Surya - Just like Bill Clinton he has chances of a impeachment life situation -- will it go to that extent? Will it stay at curbing of his power by Congress and Senate -- An Astrologer would or should not comment unless someone puts a gun to his/her head! :) :)

In India, some astrologers eventually get connected to Politicians and become part of this cycle of karma and prone to problems!! They start writing article on Grahan and just like motivated journalism start dictating bad times for some politicians etc etc -- and willful articles for coupes are created. These astrologers bring shame to astrology as then leftists and affected politicians becomes enemies of Astrology and not astrologers. (yes also Astrologers and Babas as they end up in jails).

In India, MOST astrologers are tied to Hinduism and tend to be right wing supporters. It is imp to look at Astrology from Bhagwan Krishna's word -- the ULTIMATE truth the Bhagwadgeeta -- else astrology will become like medicines -- one thing costing in Nashik 10 rupees and same in Pune 1000 and Mumbai 10,000!! Let us not EVER forget "Karmanyewadhikarate"!! WE have right ONLY by our Karma...

My Article in Karnatka Daily: Vijajavani (Thanks to Archana)

My article published in Karnataka Daily Vijayavani. Thanks to Archana Hebbar for the translation and working with the daily!

Original English Article: 
Guru-Rahu Yuti: 

Rahu Ketu Thoughts Continued

Rahu & Ketu are always 180 apart to each other, When one is uchcha other is too. When one is neech the other one is too. When Rahu in uchcha /neech in Navamansh then Ketu is also such. When Rahu is X Rashi Ketu is in X+6th Rashi which are complimenting each other. So Rahu Ketu always complement each other. Rahu is anger and agitation and frustration and extreme materialism and greed -- Ketu is pessimism, slow and sukoon and spiritual.

As you can see Raahu is paternal family and Ketu is maternal family. So it the two families are always supposed to complement each other and they can't be too different or completely out of sync? Is that the reason the society always insists on "Hamare Khandaan ke barabari ke log" or insisting for marriage of equal or similar backgrounds? Anything else and the whole society and samaaj goes against it overtly or covertly. it is nothing but the Karma.

However massively different background marriages can happen when someone has badly placed Rahu and highly placed Ketu sp -- father might have been from a lesser family and mother from a higher one. or Rahu very well placed with Guru drushti and so on and Ketu badly placed say with Shani etc -- then the father had better inheritance and mother didn't!

You can see that when your Rahu or Ketu - -ONE of them is very well placed and the other badly placed -- -you will find that your parent's marriage might not have been welcome by the elders in their family! :)

Shani in the 5th house (Saturn in the 5th house) of a Birth-Chart (Natal Horoscope)

Shani in the 5th house of a Horoscope
“The Lawyer!”
SHANI: SATURN, Shanai, Shanai – slowly slowly, Sincere, Serious, Hard-Work, Perseverance, covertly ambitions, Auditor, Police, Relentless delivery of good/bad karma, Channel for karma delivery just like ISO or CMMI Auditors or Financial Auditors, Poor People, Masses, Workers, Large group of Consumers, Cold Calculations, Devoid of emotions, numbers driven approach

The 5th house: Intelligence, Buddhi, Kids (Santati), Execution Excellence, Overall Success, Duties, Designations Go-Getter attitude, Inspirations and Extrovert behavior

A highly dutiful planet like Shani in the Dharma-Trikon house (1-5-9) of the 5th obviously shows sincere and serious approach. It is also the house of inspiration and speculation which of course is discouraged by Shani. So, it is difficult to find artists born with the 5th house of Shani. As Shani is about auditing and policing, this Shani is wonderful for police & lawyer professions and also political affiliations as that’s the field that most frequently needs law-makers. This Shani gives blessings or a curse of doubting anything & everything! :) “Samshayee Vritti” is the name of the game for this Shani. Their doubt about anything are legendary! An audit performed by 5th Shani person can make some weak hearted people literally cry! As Shani doesn’t like any kind of a hurry or extrovert behavior, this house is not the most natural for Shani. The 5th house is about education but not like degrees and academic excellence or collecting great exam scores. It is about applied knowledge so, Shani in the 5th is at loss in the early ages or primary education without a sense of purpose. Maybe, some 2 / 3 subjects they develop interest in.  It is sometimes a struggle to learn a subject without seeing it in practice.

This Shani has drushti on the 7th house of marriage and relationships or partnerships. Obviously, it shows or rather recommended late marriage compared to the family history. Early marriage can result in some chaos and bitter experience. Usually for a girl is suggested to be 26 27 and for a guy say 30. Shani drushti in addition on Shukra and or L7 can further show delays. Very well placed Shukra or L7 and in Mangal drushti can result in a marriage and issues after marriage as Shani 5th alone is not able to stop the marriage! :) Astrologers also need to try! :)  The immediate next effect of delayed marriage is major effect of 5th Shani which is on the kids. Santati / Kids are almost by rule are lesser and also delayed. Now is the age of lesser # of kids anyways but with Shani 5th it is much lesser than family norms (# of kids) and they are later in life after age of 30/32. Shani drushti on Guru or L5 only adds to the delay. Early kids forced etc could result in some major issues. This Shani is about chronic or long-term illness to kids and especially the first one if happens before say 29/30. Only when Rahu or Mangal are involved in 5 11 or Mangal drushti on Shani then a miscarriage or a tough pregnancy is seen. Again, Shani is about delayed but not denied.

Shani drushti on the 2nd house of family and wealth & also 11th house of gains shows delays with accumulating large wealth and better luck is seen after the age of 30. It makes one do hard-work and efforts before huge wealth is sent their way. Delayed but not denied. It is advised NOT to go for ambitious day-trading or greedy moves in share market etc (gambling) with this Shani. Else, some huge losses could be seen. It is recommended to go for long-term investments.

As the 5th house of the horoscope shows heart / spine, these things need some strengthening by yogasan and pranamyam and so on. This is more so if Shani also has drushti on Surya and or L5. Shani in Singh brings some certainly to this. Shani in Ketu’s nakshatra shows heart history in maternal family whereas in Rahu’s nakshatra it could show it to the paternal elders.

One of the issues with this Shani is that not just 30 but also the age of 35th it shows again some tussle with spouse and relationships. So it could be continued struggle post 3 for some time but with patience and maturity it would mean only physically staying away from the spouse for a few weeks or months at the age of 35th plus minus 1 and not extreme fights etc. Shukra or L7 in the 7th house is particularly chaotic with this Shani. It DOES get into relationships earlier than 30 or lot earlier but then gets in to some tussle. The mantra of “delay” should not be forgotten.

It is highly unlikely if not impossible to find a sportsperson with this Shani :) Lawyers YES – a lot! Police – of course yes and politicians too! Financial auditors (CA: Chartered Accountants etc) or auditors of any subject. Critiques - -movie critiques or sarcastic writing (When Budh with Shani). Any profession that needs attention to detail belongs to this Shani.

(1)    Help marriage bureaus – donate money and efforts etc, Help people get and stay married, participate ACTIVELY in friend and relatives’ marriages
(2)    Donate to Orphanages, Visit the, and spend time with less privileged kids.
(3)    Tuition etc in childhood help as scores in exams (marks” arfe very imp for Indian parents! :) Actual useful knowledge is imp for this kid!

Important Configurations:
[A] These things below will be much lesser in intensity if Shani degree is not close to Ascendant degree. Or Shani is aspected by Guru, Shani is NOT aspected by Mars or with Raahu or Ketu. Or say Shani is not wakri or worse stambhi which gets ignored. Shani has good speed & is not with Surya (Astangat). Shani is Raajyogkarak of friendly with Lagna-Rashi or Chandra-Rashi. The owner of Shani’s rashi “well-placed” and or in Guru drushti.

[B] The following things will be lot worse if Shani is with Mangal or has Mangal drushti. No Guru drushti, Wakri Shani is with Rahu or Ketu or Surya. If it has very less speed. Owner of Shani is wakri or is 6 8 12 from Shani or in Mangal or even Shani’s drushti! (Recursion!) :)  The worse or better the karma the more & more acute planetary formations in a natal chart.

Born on 1 10 19 28 of Any Month

Born on 1 10 19 28 of any month (“1 borns”)
"Main hun Naa!"

These dates are ruled by Sun. Like Sun they are original, inspirational behavior with original ideas. Leadership by example. They have natural entrepreneurial & pioneer approach. They start something new which the family didn’t do earlier. Like Sun they are aloof and want to be left alone most of the times. They do have various people in their life with specific roles assigned to them just like the Sun has the solar system has planets revolving around itself. These people generate new ideas & execute it adamantly. Just like the Sun, they don’t like people coming to close to them! They are more protectors than the sentimental emotional caring 2 born folks.  They are usually the alpha-male personality in the family. They are a BIG PICTURE and MACRO-Management people. Micromanagement or attention to details is not their worry or their priority. People contact or people needs are not their first or foremost priority or concern. They usually do things that are good for people but they do not start with people as the center of the circle for their brilliant ideas. They eventually try to find the people who might like their ideas.

They are lovers of big ideas and big launches like big bang. It is completely opposite to the dates of 8 17 26 that are step by step, auditing, critiquing and policing around. Every now and then these 1 born folks do something inspirational which keeps them going.

Their physique usually is robust and health also robust as the Sun gives them great immunity. However, they can have slight temperature from time to time. They usually have sizable or prominent forehead. Heart and Spine are natural areas of problem. The reason is obvious -- they are overused! :) They take so much load and take things on EGO that their spine/back is over-loaded literally! Also, inspirations always accompany palpitations and irregular breathing.

As they are dominated by Sun, transit Shani going over their natal Sun is the worst period in their life even worse than Sadesati and if Moon is with Sun or before or after Sun then Sadesati is combined with this Sun-test! So Sadesati teaches them many things. Most common things are to “adjust to people” or “think about people” and take care of health. (Bill Gates lawsuits in the 90s and Dhirubhai Ambani in the late 80s.)

Natural friends of 1 born folks are 5 (5 14 23) born folks, also quite OK are 3 12 21 30 folks. 2 (2 11 20 29) born can fill suffocated around the 1 born folks but they are not enemies and are quite complementing as 2 born is emotional and can help take care of personal life of 1 folks. Neptune date of 7 16 25 are OK just like 2 dates but Neptunians are a bit better with 1 born than 2s. 9 18 27 Mangal dominated are friends of 1 folks but there is some tussle from time to time and power showdown (Mr and Mrs Smith! :) )  The OUTRIGHT enemies of 1 born are 8 17 26 as they can’t stand each other much. Uranus born 4 13 22 31 are more like 9 18 27 with 1 borns – some tussle with quite OK.

Born on 1st of any month:
This a pure number unlike other dates of Sun 10 19 or 28. This means they have childlike purity in their approach. There is not much baggage of some sort of wisdom, maturity or pending study or scrutiny /study which could result in inaction or lack of action. They have James Bond like disposition. While 10 19 tend to slow down and stabilize at some point, the 1 born continue with the same vigor and childlike purity they have in their childhood or say college etc. There is hardly any complexity or compound number lessons or study that needs to be completed. This is 2nd luckier dates out of 1 10 19 28 after the luckiest of them 19.

Born on 10th of any month:
They have just as much Bond like as “pure 1” born in their childhood. However, this 0 in 10 brings in wisdom, maturity and balance which slows down their outright risk taking and approach. 10 has huge power if they ACT on their ideas. However, often, they would rather not! They tend to take this “matured guy” persona which becomes more ALOOF than 1 19 or 28. They know what is the right thing to do and what would happen if they did something but they might choose to purposely slow down or made to slow down by their surroundings. It is both desire & destiny at times to slow down a bit and guide others and act with more responsibility and lead an aloof life. This is both a trap which should be avoided but it is also the destiny due to some events which changes their personality from direct action oriented guy to a watcher from the sidelines. They are reluctant rulers if you may!

Born on 19 of Any months:
The LUCKY date of rulers! Harmonious compound number of 1 (Sun) and 9 (Mars). Yes, there is a compound personality and some lessons initially and then they take off fully. Of course, they are aloof lesser than 10 but more than 1 and 28. Their decision making is more correct but takes a bit more time than the 1 born but not as much as 10. It is a great date to start new businesses or kingdoms of their own. However often, they are giving some platform being a lucky date and they take is further ahead and of course by adding MORE brand-new things to it as aftercall they are Sun dominated. Friends and Siblings (9) and land and vehicles are very important & usually have good luck with these. Sadesati brings in diplomatic compromises and much needed carving out of unnecessary part of their kingdom - -more so when Shani is going over their natal Sun!

Born on 28th of Any month:
They do have a lot of friends and this is the friendliest of the 1 dates. They can anytime get into aloof and alone mode at a switch of a button but they are not naturally like that. They are people person but again social circle is marked with specific role to specific people. The date of mass-production. They are about masses and products & services to be used by masses. They usually tend to attract overzealous supporters and partners who with best of intentions end up hurting them. (Bill Gates lawsuits in the 90s and Dhirubhai Ambani in the late 80s. Maybe, some of Lata Mangeshkar overzealous supporters might have hurt even Asha Bhosale, forget about Suman Kalyanpur or Hemlata!)

Exceptions /Additions:
(1)     The Moon Sun or Ascendant in Makar rashi opposes these dates traits and brings in some compound karma and complex karma to the mix.
(2)     The Moon in Kirk (Cancer) will bring in emotional approach and help in most ways.
(3)     The total addition of birthdate will add or oppose to this B-date (especially 8 17 26 will oppose this 1 big bang approach). It shows conflict in personality which is difficult for self and also others to manage!

TATA Motors dominated by the date of 1 (Sun) is about coming up with BIG idea and BIG Acquisition and mergers etc. They get the BIG picture right, attention to detail is then left to appropriate people. Like they got big idea like SAFARI where most of the stuff is right like Size, Engine, Transmission etc but switch-gear, knobs, small buttons and so on is not paid as much attention – the fine tuning is not the biggest priority so much to get the big picture right. Also, they come up with NANO (Ratan Tata 28Dec) and then try to find out customers for it. It was NOT designed with any customer segment. MAHINDRA ruled by 2 on the other hand STARTS with what people like and what people want! SO when Renault doesn’t listen to it with their car, they are a big failure with their cheap frugal car! :) Whereas Mahindra produces what people love as you can see from Scorpio, XUV5OO and recent TUV3OO and Bolero and even THAR. As you can see 1 the Sun and 2 the Moon approaches quite evident in here.  TATA being 1 can’t handle collaborations well – They would rather buy-out/acquire a company. Mahindra on the other hand will have successful collaborations and joint ventures. You can see this alpha-male approach with Sunil Gavaskar (10 born) and Ajit Wadekar (1April).
