Heinous crime, is news true

There was heinous crime that happened in one of the northernmost regions of India. One particular community that is in minority in that state has been accused of carrying out this crime. I asked a prashna whether it is true that this community is responsible for the crime?

The chart details are: 12/Apr/2018, 14, Pune, 12:43:01PM.

Shahasane says that if the 3rd CSL is retrograde then the news is false (ie this community was not responsible for the crime, in this case).

As one can see (after casting the chart), the 3rd CSL is Mercury, and Mercury is retrograde.

Notably, Mercury is placed in Uttara Bhadrapada which is owned by Saturn. As per KSK, in his book on Horary page 171, it says if the 3rd CSL is placed in a constellation owned by Saturn, the report is false.

As such the chart is indicating that the community being vilified for carrying this crime out is not guilt of it. This is a falsehood that is being spread.

I wonder if the truth will be revealed when Mercury that is retrograde turns direct on 15th/16th of April 2018. 

Chart of the perennial youth leader

Long time indeed. But I am back because someone sent to me, what is claimed to be the hospital recorded birth details of an singular political leader in India who for the past almost 50 years has been considered as a youth leader. Names are not important, lets just quickly jump into the chart and have a look-see at what it says:

The native is born under Ketu nakshatra of Moola. Moola nakshatra natives usually have a sub-optimal life and I have often seen them making several wrong choices. The advantage of those born under a Ketu nakshatra are that such people have had their lives cut short in a previous birth due to some accident etc and thus if they take a little bit of care of themselves can live a long life. However, these people are also obsessed with thinking about death and mishaps. Of course this is a very general take and one would need to look at each individual chart to come to any conclusion. so don't get worried if you are born under Moola. Anyway, this is non-testable and as such it falls within the realm of traditional jyotisha. Only the native can tell us what he thinks. So I'll get right into the meat of my analysis:

The first thing that stands out is that the native is extremely undisciplined. There is very less 'determination' in this chart and as such though the native may have very strong feelings towards whichever country or religion he considers his own, he is simply unable to put in the necessary hard work needed to have his way. Basically the lack of determination has made his belief system impotent.

This indiscipline or laziness or whatever you want to call it has led to the native literally squandering away the period that was absolutely golden for his career. The dashas of Sun and Moon were exceedingly good for a career in politics. These dashas ran from March 1996 to March 2012. The combination of 10 11 is the combination of a walkover type of win. ie doors opened for the native, and he won stuff without taking efforts. The presence of  8 + 10 11 in the Moon dasha (March 2002 to March 2012) was the golden period for the native in reputation and making 'unearned income' through various sources (more on this in the para below). However, one can remember this ambivalence in plunging into the rough and tumble of politics at that time. In this laziness and fear, he wasted the chance of a lifetime in making his mark in career. Its like missing that one Olympic swim meet where all your opponents have pulled out due to the flu and all you need to do is to complete the lap to get a Gold. And our boy says...naah...dont feel like swimming today.

To be fair, the native did enjoy the perks of power in this period. Power without responsibility. But he could have achieved so much more. Both Sun and Moon are natural significators of government are are the best grahas for career in his chart. I cannot overstate the importance of what this person has wasted. Alas. In fact this may also be the issue with this person. Anyone who gets too many walkover wins, loses the will to fight and achieve. This would fit perfectly with how the public perceives this youth leader as well.

The prevalence of the 8th cusp in the chart (its literally scattered everywhere) is not surprising, given that the native lives on unearned income. As such he has earned no respect. Unearned income could mean anything from income earned by spouse to bribes taken to extortion to inheritance. Unfortunately for the native, the 8th house also gives obstacles, insults, delays, accidents, etc. Have you noticed a corrupt politician who may be a billionaire gets no respect? Have you noticed people do not speak highly of those who make unearned money (inheritance, lottery, etc)? 8th house always carries a sting, and this person has been stung in several areas of his life it would seem. 8th is also the house of the underground and people who make money using illegal means also have a lot of this house in their chart.

Now coming to his career going forward. The native will be done with his Mars Dasha by March 2019. He will pose formidable competition to Narendra Modi, as he moves from the Mars(dasha)-Venus (bhukti) period he is in currently to the Mars-Sun period from April last week and then into the Mars-Moon period from September 2018 to March 2019. 

Mars is giving him results of 6 11 combination, which is a thumping victory and as powerful as 10 11. In addition Sun is giving him 2 10 11 + 8 which suggests victory using underground techniques. The period from September to March 2019 will truly test Narendra Modi's destiny as it will be the when this guy's flame burns the brightest. Moon and Mars are the two best planets for a career for the native and they will be firing on all cylinders together. The 8th house is also signified suggesting no move will be off the table and the native will do anything to win. The natural characteristic of Mars is also to wage war, and all will be fair in this war for the native. Narendra Modi will be tested. Any complacency on part of Namo or Amit Shah will be punished by this chart.

The reason I feel that the native will not succeed in defeating Narendra Modi, apart from Modi's chart being powerful, is that after March 2019 the native does not have a strong chart. In fact he does not get reputation nor gain after Mars as neither the 10th nor the 11th house is represented in the dasha of Rahu. As such it is difficult to see him as even the head of opposition. But his chart is potent enough to make him the leader of the final assault till March 2019. Its quite funny, but Rahu has the combination of 1 6 only, which is what I call a "moral victory". People who follow politics in India will know why it is funny.

Coming to his personal life, the native is not very bright. The chart neither is good for education nor does it suggest that the boy is intelligent. The primary house of education is the 4th. The 4th CSL is Saturn which itself suggests obstacles. Saturn is signifying the 4th house, but it is an even stronger significator of the 8th and 12th houses which suggest severe problems in academic life. The native may just about be able to complete his basic education in pass class. This is rumoured to be the case as well. In fact the native's education life must have gotten over in the Venus dasha itself (which ran till he was 26). Venus is uninterested in education and it would have reflected in the native as well. He may be interested in creative pursuits though and I would not be surprised to learn that he writes or paints or sings or something like that.

The abundance of the 4th house in the chart suggests that the native is extremely secretive. The left hand doesnt know what the right is doing. There is a possibility of having secret affairs as well, but they will never be exposed enough to create a scandal. Only rumours at best. The native is likely intuitive as well. In fact he relies heavily on his 'gut' to make decisions. As a Libra Ascendant who relies on his 'gut', he is easily swayed by people around him

The native is likely to remain single all his life as the chart is quite ordinary from the marriage point o view. Marriage happiness is seen from the 7th cusp's sublord (7th CSL) which is Venus. While Venus is the natural significator of love and pleasure it predominantly signifies marriage negative houses. So while the native may have his share of relationships they are unlikely to culminate in marriage and if they do, married life will be extremely tumultuous and unhappy. The weakness of his chart to give marriage can be seen from the fact that even though Mars is very good for marriage for this politician, and Mars dasha is going on it has not delivered marriage to him. Mars dasha will end in March 2019 and after that it is unlikely that the native will get married. If the native is serious about getting married, his best chance is from now to May 2018, or in August 2018.

Health wise the native looks vulnerable in the head and heart department, ie. 1st house and 4th house. The native must not ignore any nervous system or mental issues. Mental issues can be something as simple as headaches as well. 4th CSL is Saturn which governs coldness, so native may be frequently troubled by bronchitis, or other lung related diseases and cough. Saturn gives long lasting illnesses and may also cause blockages in the chest region. These are the two areas that the native must not ignore.

Lastly, will he go to jail? No. The native does not have combination of imprisonment as per his chart. Nor will he escape to Europe.

So long folks!

Hello folks, 

It has been sometime since I wrote on charts. It has been a wonderful journey and I have met amazing people who considered me worthy of sharing their life issues with me. I learnt from them and hopefully my advice or reading of their charts helped them as well. Some have become good friends and topics with them evolved beyond jyotisha, into life, spirituality, family, etc. They are hopefully reading this and they should know I cherish their friendship.

However, I have to announce a short break from reading charts now. Honestly, I was not able to keep up with the charts asked and with Moon in my Ascendant I am not able say 'No' to someone who asks for help. Having my normal commitments along with reading charts stretched my schedule no end. So before I started to wane in my accuracy and bring discredit to the science of Jyotisha, I have decided to take a break.

When I return, I will hopefully be rejuvenated and happy to share analysis of newer charts. But for the purposes of consultation then, I will only take charts from only some of the people I have worked with earlier. I have had too many experiences with frivolous questions and non-serious querents which disappointed me no end. 

I may continue to write on jyotisha on the blog (so I am not stopping blogging!) to share whatever little knowledge I have, and any new discoveries. 

My hope is everyone keeps reading my past posts and continue their jyotisha learning journey. May it prove as exhilarating for you as it has for me. May Ma Bhairavi give all of you, whatever is best for you.

KP never fails

A businessman contact was recently interested in going into a food venture with a Russian company. The idea was to set up a type of western breakfast food stores across cities. My contact went for several meetings with the Russian company's management and after everything was finalised contacted me to check when the final contract signing would happen and whether the business will be profitable for him. 

Chatting over whatsapp he gave the seed number 407.(!!!!)

I immediately knew that the answer is negative. For he knew fully well that the seed should be between 1 and 249 (having consulted with me about a million times before) and yet he gave a number out of the range. This is an omen that all is not well. Students should note that if this happens 9 times out of 10 the answer to the question being asked is unfavourable.

Anyway, not wanting to disappoint my friend, I asked him to give me a new number. In fact this new number would corroborate how correct the omen was.

The new number he gave was 131 and I cast a chart at 19:41:52, Pune on October 31, 2017. I am not putting the chart here as I am working on a very slow net connection. But diligent students would already have a software right? :)

First thing I checked was the 3rd CSL as it will determine questions like "Will  I get the contract?". The rule is simple, if the 3rd CSL signifies the 11th house the person gets the contract. The 3rd CSL in this case was Jupiter. Jupiter is in the star of Rahu. Their significations are as follows:

Ju 1 3 6; 

Ra 10;
Conjunct X
Aspect X
Sign lord Moon: 5 10; Ju 1 3 6
Star lord Me: 1 9 12

Jupiter aspects 5, 7 and 9

As one can see there is no connection between the 3rd CSL and the 11th house. As such I told him, according to me you will not get the contract. 

This was quite shocking for the querent who had expected to hear more on how the business would run and risks etc, but here I was saying that the contract which was in the final stages or crossing Ts and dotting Is will not materialise at all.

He pushed me saying "There and only grammatical errors that we are working out. We have already paid them a token. And honestly they cannot possibly back out, they've been working on this project for 3 months now!".

I replied: Look I have been wrong once or twice. So maybe I am wrong in my prediction here. But my dharma is to honestly interpret the chart based on the rules of interpretation. Since 3rd CSL does not signify 11th cusp, I cannot say that you will get the contract.

The conversation ended there, with him prodding me and I sticking to my stand of contract not materializing. What is the point of analysing the health of a non existent business. This is the strength and the weakness of stellar jyotisa. The strength is that most times, especially to a serious question, the answer is crystal clear. Which is why, like Vedic astrologers I do not have to delve into obscure puranic stories and how x planet is friendly with y and who is whose son and which is whats wife etc. But this becomes a weakness when a client insists on wanting to hear a story instead of a clear yes or no. People would rather that the jyotisha be wrong but give them a great story, instead of simply being correct. Alas, that cant be helped. We all carry our own burdens :)

Anyway, I was travelling for 10 days after that and in between on 6th Nov received a message from the querent, "Ur prediction was right the agreement is not going through. The guys had ulterior motives and it cannot be worked out on the terms they are now offering".

My reply was simple: Brother, I take Rs 1500 per question, how much did you spend on travel and not to mention the interest lost on the million odd you gave as token. Wouldnt it be cheaper for you to ask me these questions before you commit so many resources instead of after? I havent received a reply yet.

Verily, who cares about the doctor once the illness is cured.

Lost girl - will she be found?

I received the following message from a friend: a 12-13 year old  girl is lost, her father has given the seed number 29 with the question "when will my daughter be found?". I can imagine how scary and painful it will be for a father, especially in this day and age, to lose a daughter like this and I immediately cast the following chart:

In cases of such lost persons, the first thing to check is that the 11th CSL should not be in the star of a retrograde planet and should signify the house related to the person being lost. Let us look at the 11th CSL here and its significations:

Moon 5, 3 4; Su 5 

As can be seen the 11th CSL in the prashna chart prepared for a number given by the father is strongly signifying the 5th house (5th house stands for child). As such there is 100% certainty that the child will be found.

Next I looked at the rotated chart (rotated to make the 5th cusp the Ascendant) to garner more information:

The DBA is of Sun-Me-Me. Lets look at the Nadi significators:

Mercury strongly signifies the 9th and 12th cusp that suggests to me that the girl is far away from her native place. Given that there are Rahu and Ketu do not feature in the DBA I do not think she has been kidnapped. Asc CSL Rahu (in rotated chart) is in Chara Rashi of Cancer, suggesting that the girl is on the move. None of the DBA planets are malefic, so she is not in discomfort. So in some ways is it possible that she has run off on her own?

The Ruling Planets at the time of judgement were Venus, Jupiter, Sun, Mercury, Mercury. Mercury, Venus and Sun are fast moving planets and as such there are good chances of the girl being located in 7-10 days. 

D lord Sun is strongly signifying the 3rd house while Bhukti and Antara lord are signifying 2 11. So I believe that a message will be received about the girl before she actually comes home. In any case the prashna asked was "when will my daughter be FOUND?" not "when will she COME HOME?". So I am not too bothered about the presence of 3 and absence of 4. 

Now 'when' she will be located is the question. For that we will use the transit principle outlined in the last blog about the Quiz. Look at the un-rotated chart again:

House of desire fulfillment is 11th. 11th house is empty. 11th is owned by Saturn. Saturn is untenanted (i.e. no planets in any star owned by Saturn). However, Sun, Rahu and Ketu are in Saturn's sub, so Sun, Rahu and Saturn will become the strongest significators of the 11th house. Since the event is expected to occur in 7-10 days, we will look at the transit of the Moon. between 20 and 27th Sept, Moon will pass through the signs of Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and the first 2-3 degrees of Sagittarius. Star owned by Rahu appears in Libra and Moon will pass through this star on 23rd September 2017, between 1:17AM to September 24th 2:17AM. This would be the period when the girl would be found.

Sure enough, I got a message at 2PM on September 23, 2017 (90 mins back) from the same friend who had relayed the father's question to me that the girl has been found by the police (govt agent - Sun dasha lord signifies govt) in a city about 150-160 kms away from her home town. As predicted, a message from the police was received before the girl returned and as I type the family is en route to that other city to meet the girl in the police station.'

My pranaams to Ma Bhairavi to have returned the girl to her family.

Of Pappu, Parkar and Padmawati…

“I give them what they want, so that they will want, what I want to give”

The Bookkeeper believes there will be attempts made by the liberal cabal to push its narrative to the youth. This will happen through films, music, TV, ‘poetry jams’, nonsensical Whatsapp forwards, etc. One should not be surprised to find a sudden surge in movies that glorify arab plunderers of India. There will be attempts made to also humanize and perhaps idolize ruthless gangsters. The figures will be painted in a Guevara-esque colour, of being a rebel, of fighting against ‘the rigid, patriarchal, misogynistic, casteist, ritualistic, mindset of the Hindu, controlled by the north Indian hindi speaking Brahmin male’ (hope I did not miss any cliché). The reason for this impending visual onslaught is simple, to influence the minds of the young voter.  The rapist will become the lover, and the criminal will become the rebel. 

The young voter is what put Narendra Modi into power in 2014. Consider this, in the 2014 polls, ~25% of the new voters were in the 18-19 year old age group, nearly 50% if you include those till the age of 22 years. In all, eligible voters in the 18-23 years range were just under 50 million. In just seven states with the youngest voting population (C’garh, J’khand, MP, Delhi, UP, Assam and Rajasthan), the simple average vote share of BJP was 46% vs. national average of 31%. It is this segment of young, first time voters who are convinced by his argument of development over the usual ‘appease Muslims and any one caste group to win elections’ approach that had cost India its golden years post-independence.

By the time 2019 rolls around, the influence of younger votes will intensify. A staggering 133 million are estimated to be first time voters in the 2019 elections. This is the generation that doesn’t remember 2002 and doesn’t know of Ayodhya. It is these minds that need to be captured by Narendra Modi’s vision for India, if he is to win. While Modi is doing his bit through MUDRA loans for entrepreneurship, free gas connections, bank accounts, the liberal cabal will use the mediums at their disposal, namely the creative arts and the film industry. 

It not for nothing that Rahul Gandhi is projected as one blessed with perpetual youth. It is not for nothing that he is touring colleges on a regular basis. Is it indeed a coincidence that that a ‘love’ story about an Mughal prince and Rajput Princess released just 1 year or so before the 2009 general elections; and another film allegedly showing a ‘love’ story between a Mughal prince and a Rajput princess will be releasing just a year or so before the 2019 polls? Has anyone noticed a sudden upsurge in overly political and anti Narendra Modi Whatsapp forwards circulating on various groups? Also, a sudden surge in ‘youtube’ videos perhaps? The Bookkeeper believes it is to ensure that the first time voter is swayed away from voting for the Congress.  A person’s first vote matters. The Bookkeeper knows of several people who vote for Congress only because “I have always voted for it”, or “my family is a Congress voter”, type reasons. 42% of the voters make their minds about who to vote even before the campaign starts (as per CSDS post poll 2014 survey). 

It is important to be vigilant. Remember, 100 million people voted for Congress in the last general elections. That is not a small number by any stretch of imagination. Nearly 20% of those surveyed by CSDS (post poll 2014) preferred a Gandhi, or their appointee as the Prime Minister of India. Indian National Congress was still the no. 2 party as per the same survey to the question “which party has raised issues that you consider most important”. 18% felt that the Congress was better part for administering India. 15.8% identified themselves as traditional Congress voters (more than 15.2% for the BJP). This is after seeing a disastrous 10 years riddled with scams and the (now infamous) interview of Rahul Gandhi by Arnab Goswami. 

No wonder the liberal cabal is enthused with the prospects of winning young hearts and minds over with covert propaganda films and TV programming. And it is this that motivates a certain type of a film maker.

Consider the above post completely fictional. Any resemblance to any movie, or person, living, dead, imaginary, or about to release completely coincidental and with no intention to cause harm or tarnish reputations of anyone or anything.

A quiz and its solution

This was a quiz asked by a fellow astrology student. It is a prashna chart that deals with the birth of a child. The chart has been rotated as per the person who asked the question, so dont bother with that. The important thing is that the chart pertains to the birth of the third child. As such we will take the 9th cusp to mean that child, (5th is first child, 7th is second and 9th is the third child).

The quiz questions were:

1) Would it be natural birth or cesarean would be needed?
2) Sex of the child?
3) Date of birth (was told that its between 8th Sept and 19th Sept 2017)

The chart is as follows:

9th CSL is Saturn, Saturn is posited in Mars sign of Scorpio that is the 8th house of the natural zodiac and signifies going deep. The planet Mars (karaka of surgery) also features in the RPs, so I was reasonably sure that there was surgery involved. To be doubly sure, lets look at the significations of the 9th CSL:

Sa 11, 2; Me 8, 7 9

The prime house of surgery, 8th, is also involved so my answer was yes, this would have been a cesarean birth. This answer was correct.

Sex related questions are best not answered as there is always a risk that the family will get a baby girl aborted, but since this Q is in post event I will analyse it here. Again we will look at the 9th cuspal sublord. 9th CSL is Saturn, its star lord Mercury is posited in Leo. Leo is a male sign, and so the child will be male. This answer was also correct.

Date of delivery is something I got wrong (though I was the closest to the date amongst the astrologers to whom this quiz was asked). This was a pure transit based question. I used Nadi significators and Nadi transit methodology to arrive at the date:

Ke, Ve, Su, Mo, Ra, Ju, Sa, Me is signifying full combination of 2 9 11. Mars too has a 2 11 signified. So in effect all planets are positive for child birth. From 8th Sept onwards Ra, Me, Ma, and Su are conjoined in Leo. Interestingly even the sookshma condition of transit planet conjoining with a natal planet (both planets being positive for the event) is being fulfilled on the 8th of Sept itself, with transit Mars at 7:44 and natal Me at 8:24. As such it was extremely tough to pick out a date. Look at the transit chart at the date and time of the event:

As you can see, transit conditions are getting fulfilled, Mars+Me+Su in the same sign and transit Me, in rapt conjunction with natal (or prashna chart in this case) Mercury. The DBA is Mo-Ra-Ve and on 13th September 2017 at 9:49AM (my answer was 10th Sept), the following as the transit position of the relevant DBA indicators at the time of the event:

Sun transited Sun Sign, Venus star and Ketu sub
Moon transited Venus Sign, Mars star and Rahu sub
Ascndt transited Venus Sign, Jupiter star and Ketu sub

DBASP lords:
Moon transited Venus Sign, Mars star and Rahu sub
Rahu transited Moon Sign, Mercury star and Saturn sub
Venus transited Moon Sign, Mercury star and Jupiter sub
Saturn transited Mars Sign, Mercury star and Jupiter sub 
Mercury transited Sun Sign, Ketu star and Jupiter sub 

While I will continue to do research this, would also be very appreciative of any readers who can tell me why 13 Sept should be the date. Most of the leg work is done. I have been too close to it, so will need to take a break. Please feel free to email me at if anyone has a unique take on why the transit on 13th Sept was fruitful and not the one on 9th/10th of September.

Also giving KP significators for ease of readers (red is sub and sub's star):

The asker just clarified that when Moon passes the strongest significator of the 11th house the event will take place. Apparently, since this is final fructification of the event the 11th is more important than the 9th (which is the primary house of the event). 11th house has Saturn, Mars is the planet in Saturn's star. So when moon passes through Mars owned constellation the event will take place. In the period specified, Moon will travel though Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and Leo. Of these signs, only Taurus and Gemini have Mars owned star. Moon will pass through them on 13th and 14th. In fact Moon had just entered Mars star in Taurus when the birth happened. (ve-ma-ra-ve). Interesting approach, I will keep a track of this 11th house significations closely. Request readers to do the same.
