CUSP? Nop!! Rather Raashi Gandaant are very important

Cusp is the biggest misconception in modern or rather Western astrology. There is no mention of cusp in Indian astrology or rather; Indian astrology uses the 1st degree and last degree of many raashis (Raashi-Gandaant) for very specific kaarmic indications!! With the cocept of cusp such extreme karmic links would not be possible.

With a sign change the element changes drastically and hence the concept of cusp would never be applicable. (Hell, even last degree of Taurus (Mrug nakshatra) is a highly stable, calm, methodical environment whereas 1st degree of Gemini is bakbak bakbak and quick multiple actions, trial-errors.)

In past 19 years, I have observed that there is NO cusp in Astrology or "Sandhi-lagna" when it comes to chart-reading. You are either a Sun Sign Pisces (13th April) or Aries (13/14 April), you are NEVER a Cusp. It is very easy to identify a person is Pisces or an Arian.

The last degree of Kirk, Vrushchik and Meen raashi have a great importance in Astrology. The planets in the last navamansh and especially, the last degree of these signs in Ashlesha, Jyeshtha and Revatee nakshatra (resp) show some or other specific Karmic history.

Kirk means small water ponds, cannals etc. Vrushchik means rivers, big ponds/lakes and places of hiding etc. Pisces means oceans, extra large water storages (I guess the great lake in Duluth should qualify under Pisces instead of Scoprio!) :)

The last time (2005?) when Shani was in Ashlesha and Sun was in Cancer and mangal was having drushti on Kirk from Mesh raashi: The well-known Prince episode happend. One of my friend was surprised that I had mentioned to be careful about kids etc getting into open manholes etc some 4-5 days before this happened. My other comment on Price's b-date was also true..I thought he might have some planets in last few degrees of Cancer!! He was pulled out of the hole on his b-date --13/14 August??!!

The Titanic thing happened around 14th April or so? Which is last degree of Pisces & 14 to April 18 first navamansh of Aries. I.e. Titanic is spread across Sun in last navamansh of Meen and 1st navamansh of Mesh.

Similarly, the 1st degrees of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are known to be serious Kaarmic indications. The nakshatras are Ashwini, Magha and Moola. Ravi and Mangal in these degrees show cruel or extreme tough temparaments leading to extreme success/failure in life. These degrees are action oriented where as last degree of Cancern, Scorpio, Pisces are water-sign-- emotional. The 1st degrees are fire signs are owned by ketu and they do have tendency to show some or other thing about Cancer (the desease). The first degree of the fire-signs asks for actions from the person.

Imran Khan having Mars (Sports, Blood, Fights) in 1st degree of Moola nakshatra in Sagittarius in the 5th house. 5th house -- Last birth -- purva punyai: Mangal in Ketu's Moola nakshatra -- He might be re-incarnation of his maternal grandfather's shortlived younger brother or his Mom's shortlived younger brother! Mangal is also owner of 4th house (Mom) in his horoscope and also 9th house Mom's relatives!! 5th house Santati : His kids, especially the 1st one also need to careful with blood contents. (Mom had blood cancer but aspect of Guru on Mangal and Chandra Guru yuti inidicates long life for his mother?)

Bharatratna Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar had Sun in the 1st degree of Ashwini (Mesh rashi). Everyone is aware how strong his career was and how positive attitude and affirmative "action" his decisions reflected. (His 12th house Guru is already mentioned in the last post.)
This topic deserves a very big article but will post it sometime later.

One of the articles where I mentioned something about Mama -- near a lake etc -- was based on Budh being the last degree of Jyeshtha (last degree of Scoprio) apart from other reasons in that horoscope, this was the major decision maker. One of the horoscope from early 60s came and asked out of curioisities if any miscarriages -- as Guru was wakri in Moola that times for some time in early 60s. There were indeed a few and santati karak Guru was in the 1st degree of Moola and that too wakri in this horoscope.

Any planet in the last degree of water signs or 1st degree of Fire Signs show definite & specific karma with respect to the Karakatva (Governance) of that planet in our life.

We can start early and re-pay that karmic burden by self less good deeds instead of paying by sufferings. There are many things that can't be changed in life like lineage, siblings or many events surrounding us -- but how we respond is our own choice!! Despite, tremendous pull of destiny, yor free-will has a choiuce to avoid a very obvious (but harmful) choice.


  1. Very interesting indeed. Hubby has Sun in 29:57 degrees in Leo. In 4th house. Moon in last degree of Kumbha. How should I read this fact?

  2. I thikn last degree of Leo and last degree of Kumbh are not of great kaarmic issues. Rather Last degree of Leo is Dhanu navamansh which is great fro Sun and last degree of Kumbh is mithun navamansh which is also good one.

  3. Your summary in the last para was very touching and inspiring. You should put it as a status message for all those who think fatalistically about destiny and life. I somehow cannot accept that one's horoscope will dictate the life entirely. My elders have a habit of showing our patrikas to anyone and everyone at the drop of a hat, or even if slightest problem comes. Even I believe in astrology and horoscope very deeply, but I would rather exhaust all options and then look for an alternative suggestion from astrology, but sitting and brooding, or waiting for divine inspiration to happen is something I don't like to believe.

    Maybe thats the reason why I like to pray when I am happy, coz thats the time when I really can feel shraddha and gratitude towards the divine. But When I am bogged down by issues and stressed, I don't like to pray b'coz probably my Kanya brain just cannot concentrate.

  4. Hello Milind,nice write up :-) very helpful indeed

    I had since long waiting for something on Palmistry to come u mentioned its all for palmistry,numeroly &astrology

    specific Ques being:in my left palm i have kind of 2 parallel heart lines both starting from edge but the upper one is longer reaching in curve beyonf mid finger and lower one till the ring finger...have failed to get an answer from any site or otherwise.Helpful if you may revert.

  5. Pallabi: This shows that there are two different subjects that are dear to your feelings. Upper one being longer and lower obe being shorter is a major factor -- which is very different than usual..

    The line that end below RIng finger shows that your heart desires fame and fortune. Fame is mre important to that mind and there could be struggle/effort in that direction.

    The upper line which is ends below middle finger could show some abrupt end to a relatinship or a broken one but this is not always the case -- but it does show that there is a desire for love.

  11. Milind,
    When you say that the 1st degrees of the fire sign show serious Karmic indications...and then we are talking about Dr. Ambedakar's Sun being in the 1st degree of fire sign...what is really "karmic" about it for him? Especially, looking at what he achieved in his life...

    Also...when you say that the planets in the above mentioned nakshatras show karmic indications of the karakatva of the planet.....does it mean that it shows some issues to the things it symbolizes (as you say mangal=siblings, sun=father etc) or the houses it owns?
    Being placed in a good place of the horoscope, does it reduce the ill-effects?
    Eg : Ur article abt budh and mama/masi...I really can relate to it...having budh in the 8th house in vrushick, also owner of 6th and in jyeshta mom's siblings have suffered a lot in their lives. So...if budh+vrushik were in my 9th house, would that show reduced effects?

  12. Milind ,very well summarised in last para.By the way ,intend to complete parikrama on 3rd Shravan Shaniwar, which is convenient town to reach?

  18. Gajanan: Trambak is the town but Nashik would be the place to reach before you head for Trambak. It is on MONDAY and not on Saturday.

  19. Samradnee:
    1. 1st degree of Fire Signs is Maha parakrami when Sun and Mangal are there but they do show extreme actions or RATHER INTENSE Karmic indications actions with their karakatva i.e. Father & Govt (Sun) and siblings Mangal. So Sun and Mangal are great in 1st degree of fire signs as it is MESH navamansh --- but they do show some intense event or health related matter with their karakatva and bhavesh. i.e. Imkran's Mangal in Moola nakshatra 1st degree etc -- Mangal owner of 4th house Mother and laos Moon sign..
    2. Bharatratna Dr. Ambedkar: That is why --He was Maha parakrami due to 1st degree of Ashwini nakshatra for Sun. But he was mostly at odds with Govt and I am not very well aware of his father...
    3. Karmic indications do not have to be bad etc...Guru drushti on these plangtes even in 1st degree will not show negative thing. But 1st degree of these signs and last degree of water signs does show some or other "game"! :)
    4. YES -- 9th house, 11th house will reduce drastic effects to the person but karakatva of the planet and bhavesh effect will still apply.
    5. Correct BUT if your Mama/Mousi etc had good lives you woudl have had budh in 9ith house...and not other way round! :)

    Quite impressed with your articles on number 4 and 8. Sent an email with question regarding it. Please do reply to it.

  28. Hi Milind,
    I was searching for 1st and last degree implications for various rashis and came across your post. Very good logical explanation...
    I would like to know how is Mangal in first degree of Kumbh for Tula lagna and rashi?
    What about Shani in last degree of Tula rashi?

  29. Hi Milind,

    My brother has Moon in last degree of Kark in 4th house. It is conjunct with Rahu, but not too close, what can we draw from that?

  30. Milind.....i have SHani at 29.10 degrees in vrishchik...2nd house.....what can be my debt?

  31. You have very good on astrology and its allied sciences. Please give some information on palmistry reading.

  32. I have Ketu in the 11th house in Leo in Magha at 2:56 degrees....placed alone in Leo
