Vol 7 – C. S. Patel 2nd Memorial Issue- Part 1

T his special issue has been kept manuscript centric because it is re-dedicated to Late Shri C S
Patel. The Grandmaster of Modern Vedic astrology taught to the world few rare principles but
what was the most important teaching from him most have missed. It was ‘Keep It Simple & No-
Infidelity in Astrology’ – this principle can be used by all the Western Astrology students and also the
Vedic Astrology students. Especially during these times of internet & fast communication where all
kinds of knowledge is available and one has multiple teachers, this is most essential otherwise as we
have observed over the last decade many great minds in astrology go ‘Absolute Waste’. In today’s times
of multiple organisations and institutions he just stuck to his room in Mumbai and did not waste time
doing Public Relations and as many have told us over the years there has never been a master like Mr
Patel. These fans of Mr Patel have been from Denmark to Australia and even from small villages in
India. The striking part of Mr Patel was he spear-headed the movement in last 100 years to bring out rare
manuscripts containing real knowledge of astrology, he travelled far to collect it, he translated them
painstakingly and demonstrated application. After him almost none in India succeeded in bringing out
so many rare verses from so many rare manuscripts. His books still remain on the top of the shelf of
every astro lover in the world. It is this penchant of his to dig deeper into manuscripts and not be
satisfied by available books that we follow and will address more gravely in this issue. Hence this issue
of the magazine will not follow regular columns and is a Manuscript Centric Issue so as to inspire
everyone to dig deeper into classics, we bring out this time translations of several unknown but most
important works.
Each Publitorial of Saptarishis Astrology is designed to be different from other editorials. As a
policy it does not venture into mundane astrology & looks upon itself to take the task mentioned in the
‘Last Book Of Astrology’ to ‘Change The Mindsets’ of astrologers worldwide which would in turn
would make the Astrology Consciousness to grow and become purified, thereby creating the stage and
the automatic need in the Universe to bring out the hidden and working knowledge in astrology. In
today’s time of commercialization and shameless self promotion it is more essential for us to raise the
consciousness.

The Enigma Of Birth Time Rectification

L et us quickly turn to a world event that happened few months back and a challenge to astrologers
worldwide. One must bear in mind that without proper birth time every article on birth time
rectification is a product of the authors experience or mind and cannot be taken as a guarantor
inspite of the fame or experience of the astrologer. It is the toughest to even rectify & get to the Asc in
cases of unknown birth and as complex a life that of Michael Jackson. A new breed of astrologers over
the internet fooled for one decade to rectify birth time till the second up to the 60th division asking for $
250 to $ 500 for it. One way to test an astrologer is no to take the chart of a known person whose birth
certificate is crystal clear and give the time of birth as unknown to astrologers. You will find that every
astrologer worth his salt will ‘Fit’ all the events into the Asc he chooses and even we are guilty of the
same, since birth time rectification is one of the most toughest process. What is more important is being
honest and admitting that it is the toughest in getting the Asc right, what say of getting to the exact
second, a practice in modern times of fooling young ones. It is Michael Jacksons chart which has given
us extreme pain and headaches not because he is a celeb but because he truly was a great entertainer. In
recent years, to cause us sleepless nights was a bigger obsession of getting to the chart of Linda
Goodman whose date of birth is also unknown, she ensured that you go round and round and don’t get
to her, just like Jackson ensured that. Let’s trace his birth time confusion with what some famous
astrologers went through.

7
Richard Gehman gives a time of 7:54 AM CDT "from someone close to Michael." Grazia Bordoni
writes that Mercurio-3 gave 3:00 AM "from him." Zip Dobyns has 1:30 AM "from a close friend of
Michael's to a fellow astrologer." Dobyns speculates late Aquarius rising. Kim Baker speculates 12:09
PM in NCGR Newsletter article. Lois Rodden spec-rectifies to 8:47 AM CDT. Basil Fearrington
rectifies to 11:53 PM in "Astrology of the Famed," writing in a footnote of the Introduction that "I had
many opportunities to observe Michael but could not get close enough to ask him about his time of
birth." On 12/31/1998, Fearrington emailed the statement that "I had occasion, while playing in the
opening act for the very last Jackson tour to ask Michael what his time of birth was. He said "I will tell
you as I told Jackie Onassis, all I know is that it was late in the evening, definitely after 10:30 PM."
However, LMR notes that "Astrology of the Famed" was published in 1996 and Jackson's last tour was in
1984 so there is some question about this. Shortly after Jackson's death in late June 2009, Steven Stuckey
1
wrote to: "My friend and teacher of 25 years, Vedic astrologer Chakrapani Ullal , was Michael Jackson's
astrologer in the late '80's. Michael gave him a time of birth of 7:33 PM." In a follow-up e-mail, Stuckey
confirmed that Chakrapani received the time from Jackson directly. Edith Hathaway submitted the
same time also from Chakrapani Ullal. PT also talked with Chakrapani who confirmed that he received
the time directly from Michael. At around the same time Michael Munkasey called citing Ed Healin for
12:09 PM. Ed worked at a record company and did charts as well. When Michael Jackson approached Ed
to read his chart, Ed sent Jackson away, saying something like "get the time from your birth certificate."
When Jackson returned, he told Ed that he had been born at 12:09 PM according to his birth certificate.
Given that there are numerous reports with different times, many from Jackson himself, PT maintained
the DD rating as of July 2009.

We even asked America’s senior most Astrologer and also a writer for Saptarishis Astrology, Shri
Chakrapani Ullal in order to double check the time of birth he received from Jackson. His reply to us:

Dear Admin,

Thank you for your email. Michael Jackson's birth time is 19:33 and it was personally given by him to me. I was his
astrologer from the 80's, 90's, and until 2005. I do believe that this birth time is correct because he had the
knowledge that the time should be very accurate for the purpose of the reading. He was kind of an enlightened man,
he was vegetarian, a meditator, and was a highly humble human being.

Yours,

Chakrapani

The Asc is Taurus with Indian Zodiac with Basil Ferrington’s time of birth Asc and Aquarius
with Chakrapani Ullal’s time of birth reference. Gayatri Devi Vasudev the editor of Modern Astrology
also took the same time of birth that of Mr Ullal in her September issue with a nice editorial to Jacksons
chart. The agony of a serious student of astrology is when he tried several rare methods to double check
on what could be the right Asc and finds that both Asc can resonate with events also matching. What
does one do in such circumstances; Indian Astrology has a solution to this which is by taking Moon as
the Ascendant.

Michael Jackson Chart via Moon as the Ascendant

I n India we see charts from natal Asc and moon Asc and to a lesser extent the Sun Asc. Why did the
ancients of India take Moon as the Asc even when the time of birth is known is a mystery, various
theories abound but classical works fail to impress as to the reason why. Infact it seems absurd to
take Moon as Asc since for nearly 2 days most of the people born will have the same Chart if one takes
it from the Moon Asc but still astrologers in India since thousands of years have sworn with their
experience that this technique works. One of the reasons to not ignore Moon Asc is not just since it

controls the water on earth and humans having maximum % of water hence Moon Asc but the
astronomical reason related to astrology is Moon is the only body which ‘Revolves Around Earth’ – this
point has not been mentioned earlier in books and craves deeper thinking on it. Imagine if you are
sitting in a park in bench and a kid zooms his bike around you continuously, won’t it affect your mind
and by affecting one’s mind it would affect ones action which is what we are trying to find out via
astrology. This revolution of the Moon around earth (you) makes it necessary to see the chart ‘Also’
from the Moon as the Asc. Also once the native has crossed the age of 32 then it becomes more than
necessary to see the chart also from the Moon Asc. In case of people who are emotional or in creative
fields one cannot ignore seeing their charts from the Moon Asc. Charts of people who are
compassionate (4H matter), clean heart you must see their charts by making Moon as the Asc and this
applies more to Michael Jackson.

Interestingly if we take Moon as the Asc then it will match with the time given by MJ to Chakrapani
Ullal but we will take it as Moon Asc chart.

9
It is difficult to explain any chart as to why the person became a celeb without going into Indian
astrology but that will be reduced here considering that the Publitorial is read by western astrology
astrologers too. Some key points are

a) The Asc Aq has Moon sitting in it which is the 6th lord of diseases and courts and accusations,
2
his life was marred by these factors all his life. 1H is the house of skull & skin and 6L of disease being
placed there means some sort of skin disease by which his skin changes frequently just as the moons
phases change. He suffered from a skin disease called vitiligo.

b) Technique of Deciphering Snap Shot Of Life:


This technique can be used by western astrology & Indian astrology adepts too and we had explained it
briefly in previous editorials. See the number of the sign in the Asc, suppose it is Sagi Asc then the
number of the sign is 9, now go to 9H of the chart and their ruler, conjunctions, planets there in and so
on and you would get the Snap Shot of Life in a second. In the case of Michael Jackson, his Moon Asc is
Aq which is number 11, so we take 11th house of his chart which signifies achievements in life. Its ruler is
3
Jupiter who is in the 9H of fortune & king. This 9H contains Jupiter & Rahu both expansive planet and
Rahu means international. This 9H is 4th (throne) from Venus (Music) and 3rd (singing) from Mars (3L
of singing). Thus he became known as the King Of Pop.
This 9H of father has Rahu, so his father would be the cause of his fortune which was exactly the
case, without his father he would not have achieved it. See 9H is also the house of mentor and it is with
Dragons head - Rahu (cheating/break of relations) and his mentor Quincy Jones was also the cause of
his great albums and the Dragons head thing happened between them. 9H is also the house of religion
and over there the planet of religion Jupiter is sitting and Rahu (change) in Indian astrology shows
Other Castes and particularly some astrologers use it to denote Muslims. Thus, Michael changed his
religion to Islam and towards the end of his life was attracted towards Hinduism. Jupiter is also the
significator of Children and Rahu denotes cheating and scandals, this is what happened in his life. 9H is
the Resultant House of the 5H of love and children and he was so much in love with children.
Dispositors dispositor is a technique that was revealed by Late J N Bhasin and here the dispositor of
Jupiter is Venus (women) and it is in the 6H of divorce and legal settlements and loss of money
(Venus). This part of the story everyone knows and need not be explained in detail. Thus you can see
how this quick Snap Shot Of Life can be seen by a small forgotten technique of Indian Astrology if ones
basics are strong which normally takes 40-50 years in astrology to achieve.

c) Chakrapani’ s Version & Symbology of Western Astrology


For a second let us truly believe that Shri Chakrapani was given the wrong time of birth, why would
someone go to an astrologer for 20-25 years and give him wrong time of birth plus money to get
consultations, it is unfathomable unless you believe in the nickname Wacko Jacko as he was called. For
some years we have been studying degrees of the zodiac and the prediction for each individual degree of
the zodiac. This deserves a very length explanation but in brief it is presented here to highlight only the
superb form of symbology of Western Astrology so that Indians look into it in detail. Inspite of so
many Sages of Indian Astrology, so far we do not have in Vedic astrology a book available to people
anything from the sages that gives prediction for each individual degree but the sages of western
astrology have done a lot of work in this field and due credit must be given to them. Charubel,
Sepharial, Firmicus Maternus, Kozminsky, M C Jain and many others have done work on it and thus if
one wishes to see Michael Jacksons Asc via degrees one must convert it to Tropical Zodiac and one gets
10° Pisces 07 ' which is the 11th Degree of Pisces. The explanation for it given in another work
4
Astrolabium Planum given below for 11th degree of Pisces.

2
Dr K.S.Charak, foremost authority on medical astrology quoted us in a mail citing Uttara Kalamrita as 1H for skin
3
9H of king as per western astrology & also Chandra Kala Nadi, an ancient work.
4
Astrolabium Planum, one of the most intriguing and enigmatic books written during Renaissance by Johannes Angelus,
published in 1488 in Augusta. We referred to a translation of Planum which was translated by R. Turner (15 Jan 1655),
foreword given by William Lilly, will try to upload it on our site or you can download it from
10
After spending two days of trying to find out what is the meaning of the word ftaffe &
finding that connection of it in the arm (written as arme in original) in the above paragraph
we troubled the never give up woman Lorin Cerina – Croatia, Margaret George U.K and
finally John Frawley – Poland, the later is considered the foremost authority on William
Lillys work, he wrote back….

just in case you're not aware of this - the thing that looks like an f is a standard form of printing s
in old books, known as the long s. If you look closely, you'll see that it differs from an f in that the
crossbar doesn't go all the way across the upright, but is on only one side of it.
The word is staffe (staff in modern spelling). It's a big stick, bigger than a walking-stick, but for
the same purpose. Hence the connection with vagabond - someone who wanders about all the time.

Best regards,

John

It is very important to connect between the words used, connect to


the era when it was written in a text and use it symbolically in your
interpretation. Due to this factor every astrologers interpretation can vary
and give in scope for criticism. What can be one form of interpretation is
to imagine if the time of birth given by Chakrapani Ullal is correct and to
see its western astrology symbolism. In ancient times it was the chieftan
of the tribe or clan or church head who carried a staff like huge stick to
symbolize that the person was a man of authority. It was like a statement
to those around him about his importance. So the point is you need to
not do literal translation but get behind the concept that the 16th century
text is trying ‘it is trying to say that staff on the arm was a symbol of
authority to stand out from the crowd. Now interpret it in modern
times, you might have noticed that teenagers nowadays wear color bands
on their hands to attract attention or to stand out. Now note that the Asc
degree describes that the man will have a kind of a staff on his arm and we all
remember that Michael Jackson had a band on his right hand and also a
white glove on his hand which is 3H and giving a white silvery band on his right
hand means giving Moon in the 3H of singing where already Mars is there, which means combining
Mars Moon and, Mars Moon combo is a famous wealth combination in Vedic Astrology, it happening
in the 3H of singing shows wealth through singing. Did an astrologer guide him on this point and he
was known to visit astrologers. When asked why he wore that band he said it is for the suffering of the
children of earth, now he has Mars in the 3H and in Indian astrology Mars is ‘Bhumi Putra’ means the
child of the earth. He wore band on hand and the 1H of fame got activated. Offhand note sometimes he
used a golden band on his arm, thus activating Sun and the famous Sun Mars Yoga.
The main intention of this write up in section is not to prove that the degree of MJ is the correct one as
gotten by the 19.33 time but to make the Indian astrologer look and research the texts of the Sages of the West and

http://heavenastrolabe.net/about-the-stars-of-angelus-astrolabium-planum/ . It is said Johannes Angelus copied it from


Ibnezra.
11
not ignore them as interpretation of the degrees of the zodiac can be the most important tool in birth time
rectification than any other birth time rectification tool.

d) Moon is the natural 4th lord of the zodiac which shows ones reputation and chastity, hence if the
moon is spoilt he becomes prone to the accusations of sexual nature, this is a general rule and also if Moon is
spoilt in a chart then ones marriage life is not stable if other factors support, additionally if Moon is spoilt one’s
life will not be stable. These general principles are oft ignored by the seasoned astrologers is what has been
observed hence it is being repeated here. Now how is this Moon spoilt?

e) If you remember one of our previous publitorials we had mentioned a Sage Bhrighu rule that
Saturn spoils the 4th from where it is placed, the 4th house from Saturn is Asc where Moon the 6L of
health, debts and court problems is placed. Saturn as the 12L of bed pleasures scandals and also heavy
karma from previous life brings that energy with it and spoils the Moon who governs all the factors of
health, debts and court cases. Thus you can see that two planets Moon and Saturn can indicate his full
life story.

f) This Moon in turn is spoilt by the 8th lord of scandals and sexual scandals which in MJs chart
from Moon Asc is Mercury aspecting the Moon (courts). Thus he was dragged into court for sexual
scandals, why children? Since Mercury is the young prince in Indian Mythology whose age is 16 and
thus if you see MJ always was dragged to court by children who were around that age. Mercury being
retrograde shows that it is past life karma and it being the 8L of Chronic Bad Karma from the Dark Past
(8H is house of darkness) it had to show in front of the world since Mercury is placed in the 7H of
Public Platform and 7H being the opposite of the 1H it brings out you in front of the people, it being
placed with a own house placed Sun who is strong there and the natural 5L of children of the zodiac and
Suns properties is to exhibit light it brought the whole story in limelight and will always spoil his image
whether it is true or false.

g) Jupiter is significator of children and Dragons Head - Rahu significator of Scandals or sexual
scandal at times as pointed out in previous publitorials, both these are in 9H and 5th house is for
children, now in any chart 5th from Jupiter is also the house of children which in MJs chart would be the
1H of self where the 6th lord of litigation Moon is sitting, no doubt he had to face court on this account
of children’s sexual scandal, it being moon can indicate constant regular harassment. A huge interest
should arise in astrologers regarding the chart of MJ since if one takes mean nodes the Dragons Head is
in 9H whereas with true nodes it shifts to 8H. This controversial topic is not dealt purposely in this
Publitorial

h) Mysterious Death Technique


One should not forget a very broad technique for finding out mysterious death will happen or not is
‘When North Node – Rahu associates with 8H or 8L or 3H or 3L it can give mysterious death’, this is one of the
techniques and not the only technique. So if true nodes are used then Rahu goes in the 8H of chronic
diseases, sexual scandals and death and that is what Rahu gave him. In MJs case Rahu is in the 8H
giving mysterious death & Rahu’s 2nd aspect falls on 8th lord Mercury. John F Kennedy had his 8H and
8L both aspected by Rahu. Marilyn Monroe’s 8th L Saturn is aspected by Rahu and so is the 8H, her
death was and is still a mystery. Subhas Chandra Bose the Indian freedom fighter who is dead or not
has not been decided since last few decades had his 8L aspected by Rahu. Bruce Lee died a mysterious
death, his 8L Mer is in the 12H with Moon, Mars and Venus, all 3 are in the asterism (nakshatra) of
Rahu and the 8H receives the ½ aspect (10th) of Rahu. Indira Gandhi’s son Sanjay Gandhi has his 8L
Sun aspected by Rahu. In chart of Hitler, 2nd aspect of Rahu falls on the 8H, Rahu’s dispositor Mercury
is with the 8L, Rahu aspects the 3H and 3L, in D9 Rahu is with the 8L Mercury of D9. One must note
that when such a Rahu aspects it can also mean mysterious or chronic diseases death or sudden death or
assassination death like in the case of Abraham Lincoln whose North Node –Rahu aspects his 8L Mer
and 8H. Rahus 2nd house aspect on 8L Venus in John Lennon’s chart lead to the mysterious uncalled for
assassination. For those who use Bhava chalit the dispositor of Rahu has gone into the 8H. One must

use this technique not for prediction but for verification as before Lordship and aspect techniques Yoga
(specific combinations) for an Event is given prominence in Indian Astrology.

i) Something Unknown About Saturn – The Philanthropist


What interests one in Indian Astrology is usually Sun is known as significator for charity, and in
Indian mythology it is the legendary & greatest donor ever called ‘Karna’ who is regarded as the son of
Sun. Also known in the planetary mythology is that Saturn is the son of Sun yet he is given the
significatorship of servants and poverty, hence not associated with charity. Hence here is a small
controversial piece of observation ‘Saturn is one of the Biggest Givers’, we use the word givers more than
donators as when Saturn gives he does not usually show pomp and drama unless afflicted. Note this
part about Saturn and also remember that 12H is the house of charity, hence whenever 12H is connected
with Saturn or 12L is connected with Saturn one can get tendencies of donating without much pomp and
5
show. Look at the chart of Angelina Jolie, she has Saturn in the 12H and has done lot of charity work .
6
Jackson has 12th ruler Saturn in the 10H of Karma and Achievements. Here is a quote ‘The Millennium-
Issue of the “Guinness Book Of Records” names Michael as the “Pop Star who supports the most
charity organizations’’, one can find a more detailed time line of his charity work at jacksonaction.com.
Bill Gates Saturn is associated with 12th ruler Venus in 5H. One of the big names in donation is of
Andrew Carnegie, his time of birth is given a DD rating by Lois Rodden, yet if we take it for a second,
you would see his 12th ruler Mercury is with Saturn in the 1H of self name, as a philanthropist, his gifts
to civic organizations were estimated at $350 million7 over his lifetime. One of the team members of
Saptarishis Astrology has Saturn in the 12H and in a way lot of giving happens via him. Once we asked
mentor what is the most special trait of Saturn in the 12H, he said ‘you have asked a wise question, such a
person can at times become such a giver that he can sell himself in giving to others, even take loan and give to
others, provided chart combinations (yogas) support it’. Not to forget Rockefeller, John D. Jr. who has a B
rating from Lois, his 12L is also Saturn, his father’s the original Philanthropist year of birth is suspect
hence not included here as an example.

j) One interesting thing about his chart is Jupiter conjoined with North Node (Rahu) in the 9H of
teacher and father. Apart from this Jupiter rules Children and it is with Rahu the planet of scandals, and
it sitting in the 9H of Fate and Fortune, thus his fate was marred by children led scandals. Whenever
the divine planet Jupiter is aspected or in trine to North Node in India students are not taught astrology
by their teachers, this is a general but golden rule. The reason is such a person will go against the teacher
who is signified by Jupiter (Guru) doubly in MJs case as it is placed in the 9H of father and teacher. He
publicly spoke against the harsh practices of his father’s training. Now when will this native speak
against his father when Jupiter’s periods are active. This part will be understood well by students of
Indian astrology by a technique called Vimshottari Dasa and it was during the period of Mer-Mer-
Jupiter which ran from Nov 92 to Mar 93 that Jackson first spoke openly about his childhood abuse in an
interview with Oprah Winfrey broadcast on February 10, 1993. He said that he had often cried from
loneliness and would sometimes vomit when he saw his father.

k) 9H is also the house of Mentor and it having the planet of cheating/deception the North Node
(rahu) there will indicate that his relationship with the man who opened his Prosperity (9H-Bhagya)
will not last forever and he would severe his relationship with his mentor Quincy Jones who gave him
the success of his albums. Jackson was disappointed by the critical reaction to Bad--despite the album's
financial success—and blamed it on decisions made by Jones during the making, and that he ended their
working relationship at the advice of his advisers.

l) When Will Fortune Rise – this is the biggest question in Vedic astrology for which parents come
to vedic astrologer concerned about their child and the toughest to answer. In this regard the BCP

13
method that was revealed last year in the 1st C.S.Patel Memorial Issue (Vol 3) is the easiest and the best.
The 9th house is the house of prosperity and rise of prosperity (Bhagya in Indian astrology), over there
the benefic planet Jupiter is sitting with North Node - Rahu which shows sudden great rise. 9H as per
the BCP method is the 21st year, 10H is 22nd and so on. In his 21st year on 10th Aug 1979, his 1st Album
titled ‘Off The Wall’ was released and he became an instant sensation with the track ‘Don’t stop
till you get enough’ after which there was no stopping Michael, thus you can see how easy it is with
BCP to time ‘Start of Prosperity’. You can further note the degree of Rahu and you would get around to
almost the exact date of 10th Aug 1979 when his album was released8.

m) North Node (Past Life Desires-Rahu) & Jupiter (religion) in the 9H of religion, will make him
change his view his views on religion as Rahu means Transformation and Pending Issues too from past
life and it is said he changed his religion to Islam and in his later period of life he was attracted to
Hinduism it is reported in media.

n) Dragons Tail – Ketu – This is Where You Can Immortalize Yourself

T his was supposed to be a future article in the BSP-Planet series but is being included here. Sage
Bhrighu method is ‘wherever Dragons Tail (Ketu) sit there you have the possibility of
Installing Your Flag Of =Your Own Name Forever’ – that is of establishing yourself if the
other planets in the chart supports. This can help you plan your life and of your clients. Let’s quickly
look at few charts without illustrations. Jackson has Ketu in the 3H of singing, hands, and shoulders
with the 10L of Career. Apart from his singing his hands and shoulder movement in his dance was too
innovative and there he established himself what Elvis could not do. Sylvester Stallone has Dragons
Tail - Ketu in the 1H as per western zodiac so he has Established His Name forever, if you take the
Indian zodiac then the ketu is in the 12H of abroad and charity in the 8th sign of the dark horse and sex.
He started his career as the dark horse and his roles were of the dark horse and his name is established
abroad. He started his career with a semi-porn movie. He has done charity work for Pediatric Epilepsy
9
Project . Similarly Bollywood star had Ketu in the 1H of self, his name cannot be erased and 1H is
personality, ideals and had huge impact to Martin Luther King and Obama. Elizabeth Kübler Ross has
Dragons Tail - Ketu in 11H of attainment, it is aspected by the planet of death Saturn, she did
revolutionary work on death and dying and Dragons Tail - Ketu being in Sagi, the 9th sign of higher
knowledge & Teacher, that’s what she gave a higher knowledge by teaching it to 125,000 students
worldwide. Hitler had Dragons Tail - Ketu in the 3H of death (secondary house of death) he put his
stamp in the style of death meted out. Elvis had Dragons Tail - Ketu in 9H of Gods aspected by Venus
in the 3H of singing; he was considered the God of Rock. Mother Teresa’s time of birth is suspect but if
we take the commonly known chart of her, it has Dragons Tail - Ketu in the 12H of Charity in the sign
of Sc, chronic diseases, she did charity work for the destitute, sick and homeless, and thus she
established her names flag forever and inspired millions. A young astrologer who gave his jyotish
software free also has Dragons Tail - Ketu in the 12H of charity and till he was charging for it he was
not known but when a mail to him stirred a cord in him, then he gave his software free of charge and
has become known now thereby establishing his name. Paramhansa Yogananda has Dragons Tail - Ketu
in the 3H of Libra (resultant house of knowledge) and its lord has gone in the 4H of knowledge. 3H is
the house of writing and his Autobiography of a Yogi is and will remain an unmatched spiritual classic
that everyone picks up in his path to understand Indian Spirituality. Jawaharlal Nehru had Dragons
Tail - Ketu in the 6H of fighting with Jupiter the 9L of Rulers. He is known as having fought with the
Britishers and helped Gandhi get our freedom. 3H is also the house of servants as per Sage Parasara,
Abraham Lincoln had Dragons Tail - Ketu in the 3H he ended slavery in America and established his
name forever. 4H is the house of Home Land, Gandhi had Ketu in the 4H of homeland and he freed our
land from British Empire and thus established his name. 9H is the house of righteousness (Dharma),
higher knowledge, religion and Guru, Lord Krishna has various charts floating around but most scholars
agree for Taurus Asc and Ketu in the 9H, he established Righteousness and religion and became Guru of

Gurus to Arjuna his student and gave us the great work on righteousness and higher knowledge called
Gita.
Help direct your clients in how they can establish themselves but please do not forget to warn
them that wherever Ketu sits there ‘One Major Mistake’ will happen, there is no 99% in this.

o) Dial M for Michael

T here is a secret system not known to Indian Astrologers on using the 9 Planets in
correspondence to the starting letter of one’s name. For e.g. names starting with R stands for
Moon and so does S for Moon, A is denoted by Sun & M is signified by Saturn and so on.
Whenever one sees a chart this method should be used in the backdrop and you should see your clients
name and the planet signified by it should be marked in memory while seeing the chart, at a later date
will provide a complete article on it. This planet signified by the starting letter will usually be strong or
important in the chart, will give you hints about the ‘Life Path Of the Individual’ & if followed well
along with support of planets can give ‘Immortality’. Do not ignore this method at all.
Now Michael name starts with the letter M and it stands for Saturn which in Jackson’s case is
the Asc lord in the 10H thereby making it doubly strong, is the significator of singing in Jaimini
Astrology (being BK) and being the 12th lord in the 10H of career it shows this life is a result of a very
deep past life desire to become a star. Also as it is the 12L of bed pleasures and sex life, being placed in
the 10H of career he should have been careful not to allow anything on his sexuality to come out in the
open. Saturn as the 12H lord of feet and Asc Lord of body, his body and feet movements were
characteristic and phenomenal.
Quickly see chart of Michael Angelo, M stands for Saturn it is the 3L of hands, painting and
sculpting and it is placed in the 7H of Lime-Light, which is what we did in life. Madonna starts with M
and her Saturn is placed in the 4H of fortune and chastity in the sign of Scorpio (sex & hidden things,
change of religion) aspecting her 10H of Taurus (2H of voice), she used extreme sensuality in her videos
to stand out among the crowd of pop singers. SA team’s one volunteers fathers name starts with M and
it is the 8L of Aq in the 10H with Mars in Aries (body). 8H is chronic diseases and Aries is body, the
gentleman has paralysis of whole body. Paramhansa Yogananda the man who wrote the immortal
classic ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ is known as Yogananda and Y stands for Moon, which is in his 1H of
Leo (5h of natural zodiac and the house of authorship) and this Moon is the 12L of spirituality placed in
the Asc, so he gave the world something new on spirituality never to be forgotten. Elvis is E and it is
ruled by Sun who is his 10H of profession, which is placed in the 2H of voice of Elvis Presley with 11L of
gains, he gained money due to his profession. K N Rao is a very old Indian astrologer, the word K stands
for Mars in his Asc with 8L of occult Venus & 10L of profession and fame Moon who is dispositor of
exalted Jupiter, he is the most famous writer on mystic Indian astrology in last 100 years. Note this
Mars of K is the 2nd lord of speech and correct predictions (Vak Siddhi), Mr K N Rao is known as the
finest predictor in recent times. If you speak of Mr Rao you can’t not speak of Dr B.V.Raman the
longest serving editor of an astrological magazine, some people call him B V Raman and some called
him Raman but mainly it is B V Raman, now B stands for Saturn and R for Moon, both are placed in his
4H of education (Vidya) which he spread and was famous for it. Moon is 6L so he was famous for war
predictions successful on World War 1 & 2.

p) Year Of Death
Use Progression the BCP way as mentioned in Vol 3 & 4, which is 1H 1st year, 12H is 12th year of life,
again rotate it and 12H will be 24th year, 36, 48 and so on. Michael died on June 25 2009 which will be his
51st year. Now 51-48(last cycle of 12) = 3H – ‘Focus House for the Year’. Now see the planets in his 3H,
Mars – the significator of diseases, accidents and mysterious death (natural 8th lord of zodiac) and
Dragons Tail - Ketu (Ketu) - significator of accidents, untimely death, ghosts, spirits and black magic.
All this in the 3H which is the secondary house of Death (8th from 8th house). Venus sits in the 6H of
10
accidents and shows drug overdose and this Ven was in Transit on this 3H along with Tr Mars

10
Venus in Indian Mythology shows herbs (Sanjeevani) which revive from death like situation but it going in a bad house
like 6H (6,8,12 are termed as bad houses in a chart in Indian astro) will show problems due to drugs (herbs).
15
thereby activating 3H of death, also ‘Simultaneously’ being activated by Rahu in the 10th from it which is
the 12H of exit thereby giving him an exit in life. Ketu shows ghosts and it is reported in media that his
ghost was cited at numerous occasions.

q) Moon Walk – With Moon in the Asc and 12L of legs Saturn in the 10H of ‘Trade Mark’ in the
watery sign of Scorpio – his Moon Walk became his trade mark and it was as if his feet were of Jelly.
How and when will he perform we would look but for those who came in late here is what is Moon
walk. The moonwalk or backslide is a dance technique that presents the illusion of the dancer being
pulled backwards while attempting to walk forward. A breakdancing move, it became popular around
the world after Michael Jackson executed it during a performance of "Billie Jean" on Motown 25:
Yesterday, Today, Forever on March 25, 1983. It subsequently became his signature move, and is now one
of the best-known dance techniques in the world. Now on March 25th 198311 Michael would be in his 25th
year which be 1st house as per BCP Progression of one house per year. 1H is the Asc whose lord Saturn
as such signifies the legs and it is placed in the 10H of highest achievement and also 10H of knees,
Saturn is also the 12L of legs in the 10H, also ‘where Saturn sits man will come to his knees’ this had
been revealed in one of our previous commentaries or better put for this chart there would be a knee
jerk. Note the sign where this 25th year Saturn is sitting it is Scorpio, a powerful watery sign, his feet
will move like water, akin to gliding on water and so in his 25th year he performed what was termed as a
Master Move that won everyone’s heart and you can watch the video
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moonwalk_%28dance%29 after the moon walk he just did that a knee
jerk, bending on his knees.

r) 8L of sexuality being Mercury who is considered a neuter gender in Indian Astrology, in the
initial years the common thought he is neuter gender and has a sexuality problem or has done a sex
change.

s) Mars and Ketu in the 3H of singing gave him the aggressiveness in his voice whilst Moon in his
1H saw to it that he still had the feminine flavor in him and his voice. Moon here made him like a
mother to all and made him distribute his money to 39 charities world over.

t) Mars is the 8L of the natural zodiac of male sexual organ and it is placed in the 3H of hands, his
trade mark became his hand catching of the crouch though he was no great looker but still men women
idolized him world over with his aggressiveness on screen. The way MJ used his hands (Mars Ketu) and
feet (Saturn) no entertainer till date has been able to do so.

u) Pepsi Ascendant

1H is head and if one fine tunes the 1H represents the area above the face i.e. the skull where the hair is
placed, over there in the 1H of hair 6th lord of accidents Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius which is
ruled by Saturn so Moon and Saturn are two most important planets, the periods of these two in combo
can give accidents to the hair, skull. All Vedic astrologers use a system of timing events called
Vimshottari Dasa and on January 27, 1984 Jackson was running Saturn Main Period with Moon Sub
Period & Saturn sub-sub period when during the shooting pyrotechnics accidentally set Jackson's hair
on fire. He suffered second-degree burns to his scalp. Jackson underwent treatment to hide the scars on
his scalp, and he also had his third rhinoplasty shortly thereafter. Saturn is the 12L of hospitalization
placed in the sign of Scorpio indicating that it will be chronic. Incidentally in Vedic astrology Saturn is
the significator of hair and he was running Saturn-Moon-Saturn. You may note how many times
Saturn has repeated in the above periods when accident happened and also we mentioned earlier that
Saturn is the Philanthropist, you see Pepsi settled out of court for the accident and Jackson donated his
$1.5 million settlement to the Brotman Medical Center in Culver City, California, which now has a
"Michael Jackson Burn Center" in honor of his donation. So eventually this Saturn that gave him the

11
Somewhere on net it says May 16th 1983 this move was first performed, still it becomes 25th year, our source is wikipedia
16
accident did make him give back to the society, you can’t sue and take the money home, it is never
yours is the common mans saying hence Saturn makes you return that money back to the masses
(masses significator is also Saturn).
Asc has Aq ruled by Saturn and Moon in it, the two colors for these planets are blue for Saturn
and white for Moon. Michael often wore blue color shirts with white T-shirt in his videos, do you
remember the super hit ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ video of his song.

How to Unlock Karma


v) Now 3H is the house of ‘UnLocking Of the 10H of Karma’ and this aspect is not known, what is 3H
it is the house of one’s actions (hands) and the house of free will and it is only with your actions and
free will you Unlock your Karma hence the 3H is the house of Unlocking of Karma. So planets in the
3H and 3L can help you Unlock Your Karma and help you achieve Karma for which you are born. This
aspect of the 3H is something new for Indian Astrologers but it works. Now see in natural zodiac Mars
the 8L of crouch and occult & dark forces is in the 3H with Dragons Tail - Ketu (Ketu) which also
signifies Ghosts. This combination fortified the ghost element. It is sitting in the 3H of short walks and
travelling and so it is only when he had a short walk with a girl near a crematorium (Ghosts-Ketu) and
when he danced with the ghosts his Karma was Unlocked and the whole world sang Thriller. Ketu also
signifies ‘Changes’ and if you remember the video of Thriller his face changed to a ghost (Ketu) and
that’s what did it for Jackson for his career as Ketu and Mars is in the 1H of Face but unfortunately this
kept on happening in his whole life.

Pending Karma or Why You are Born


Indian Astrology claims to be very karma centric and from 10,000 years of history of Indian astrology all
students will be told at the start of their astro studies that Indian Astrology helps you see your Karma,
to help you move ahead in your cycle of re-births to the next level. But unfortunately one spends 50-70
years in astrology and cannot find a single reliable technique by which the student can see his pending
karma or what is that one or many thing pending in his life for which he is born. This form of fooling
the students has continued since generations and by the time one is 10 yrs old in Indian Astrology one
stops thinking or asking this most vital question.
Now there are many hidden techniques of finding out what is the Pending Karma in the most ancient
form of astrology which is Bhrighu Astrology and only one of them is revealed here for the first time.
Make no mistake that it is a ‘General Technique’. One should test it on known charts of atleast 20 before
venturing further.

The Unknown Pending Karma Technique of Sage Bhrighu

‘Wherever the 6th Lord in a natal chart sits or the Planets in the 6H indicate the Pending Karma of
this Life that must be Crossed to go to the Next Cycle of Birth’. This is the Block that must be
cleared & wiped out in This Life. This is the thing that will always Stop your Progress and Haunt
you in this life’.

One must use this as a broad technique as this is not the only technique to find out pending karma, use
it intelligently combining other tools and from various ascendants various things will be shown. Also if
there is a planet in the 6H then see it is lord of which all houses and what it disposits, see the planets
basic significations. Even though this technique is simple it can only be used by an expert who is master
of houses, planets and house significations – if you are not widely read then don’t use this technique nor
judge it – make no mistake about what we have written above.

MJ Chart & Pending Karma

17
See in his 6H the planet of Music & Entertainment Venus is placed, his pending karma was to sing and
entertain. It being in the sign of Cancer it shows that it was very creative as it’s a watery sign. Who
does Venus disposit, it disposits the 9H of Father and Mentor, his pending karma was with his father
and his Mentor Quincy Jones. At the same time Venus is womenfolk and some of his female friends
were very close to him, whom he helped out financially thus his pending karma was towards
them. Venus is also Money and Wealth and whatever sits in the 6H one tends to lose or let go. He let
go of a lot of money for charities and eventually he got into further debts since 6H is the house of debts.
Coming back Venus disposits the 9H where Jupiter (children) and North Node (Rahu-Scandals), his
Karma was pending towards these children where he got into scandal and also other world children
whom he loved as it was his Pending Karma.

Now where is his 6L placed, it is right in his 1H of self. These diseases, accidents and facial changes all
were his Pending Karma and it had to happen. Now if you read BSP-15 that is revealed in this issue in
the Indian section you will notice that the technique of where Venus sits it gives medical expenses and
can at times indicate death. Venus is in the 6H of diseases his medical expenses were phenomenal and
Venus is in the 4H of medicines and 4th sign of heart. He died due to drug over-dose and due to final
heart failure (4th H and sign Cancer indicates heart). As the 6L is Moon who is lord of the sign Cancer
and heart, he was considered most compassionate and as a mother to several children, why so, since it is
the 6L of Pending Karma and thus he was most compassionate, the one with a lonely heart as that was
his pending karma.
Let us see few more examples:-

18
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D. (July 8, 1926 – August 24, 2004) was a Swiss-born psychiatrist and the
author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying, where she first discussed what is now known as
the Kübler-Ross model. She is a 2007 inductee into the National Women's Hall of Fame. She was the
recipient of twenty honorary degrees and by July 1982 had taught, in her estimation, 125,000 students in
death and dying courses in colleges, seminaries, medical schools, hospitals, and social-work institutions.

Now use the Sage Bhrighu method of Pending Karma and you can see how beautifully it works
in this chart. The lady did original work on Death and Dying and became world famous, see the planet
in 6H it is the planet of communication and writing Mercury who is the 8L of death, she wrote ground
break work on Death and Dying. Now see the 6L it is Moon – she was a psychiatrist, they deal with the
mind, this Moon is in the 5H of authorship – she wrote the groundbreaking book Death and Dying, it is
with Sun the natural zodiac lord of authorship and real knowledge and life giver. She gave new life to
the concept of death and dying, this 6L Moon is with Rahu and rahu is the underworld and dark things
significator, death is considered a dark subject in most cultures. Thus you can see how Sage Bhrighus
rule of Pending Karma works so well in her chart, in some charts it will not be too obvious until we
know the full story of the person so it’s no use speculating it on a chart which is only 30-40 years old.

Sylvester Stallone – It Ain’t Over Yet

19
They say if you work in the Hollywood or Bollywood industry you will not like the celebs, you
won’t be in awe of them and this was the case with us and we were not at all impressed with Sly
Stallone who just seemed like any other fame hungry guy who is in Hollywood until one reads about
this man in a book by a Sage and it seems this man was in demand back there in the Himalayas and the
people there seems to think that Stallone has done a great service to mankind. Why ? Since this man
taught USA and the world to ‘Never Think Anything is Impossible’ ‘To Fall and Get Up, But Get Up’.
When we researched on the net and talked to few oldies in the west they said that Stallone’s Rocky
taught you that even though you are the underdog, even if you are a nobody just don’t give up, if you
fall in life you make the fastest comeback and win the heart of your enemies. Generations have grown
on the Rocky Series, each learning to fight with life’s impossible circumstances just the way Rocky did
and as they say Rocky was made for Stallone and no one else could do it, he wrote it and did not get go
even when he had few dollars left in his pocket.
Now use Sage Bhrighus 6H rule, over there sits Rahu the planet of Cinemas, the 6L is Venus a
planet of entertainment in the 8H of the Underdog and the Dark Horse, who is with the 3L of acting
Saturn and hands and with Mercury, the natural lord of hands and pending karma and this Mercury is
also the 10L of profession and the 7L of public limelight and so it was his boxing (hands) movie that
gave him the famous name of the Italian Stallion and his phenomenal left punch (11L of left hand – is
the same 6L Venus of Pending Karma). All this energy in 8H with Saturn aspects his 5H of acting and
thus the man who became John Rambo – the forgotten dark horse went on to create history as the
20
greatest underdog who could not deliver a single dialogue on camera, who was born physically
handicapped to become the Messiah for all underdogs in the world.
Lets relook this, North Node (Rahu- obstacles) is in the 6H where the sign Taurus is there, it is
nd
the 2 house of the natural zodiac signifying face and speech (note the 1H is classically the skull and
brain), so this 6H Rahu should show pending karma and what he ‘needs to overcome’ . Doctors used
forceps during his birth that severed a nerve and caused paralysis in parts of Stallone's face, resulting in
his signature slurred speech and drooping lower lip. There are two kinds of people one who cry and the
other who use their disadvantage into an advantage, Stallone used his slurred speech to get into the best
quotes ever on screen, remember "Yo, Adrian" - Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa – Rocky. Then you
see the 6L again and you see it goes into the 8H of sex with Saturn, whenever Venus Saturn are in 8H
or 12H then it can lead to sexual scandals it what has been our limited observation. In Stallone’s case it
show pending karma in the sexual dept and it is only when that is finished his Karma will be
Unleashed. Now read this from Wikipedia ‘Stallone had his first starring role in the softcore
pornography feature film Party at Kitty and Stud's (1970), later re-released as Italian Stallion (the new title
was taken from Stallone's nickname since Rocky and a line from the film). He was paid US$200 for two
days' work. Do you see how he had to finish this Karma which later re-surfaced in 2007.

Mahatma Gandhi – Father of the Nation

21
Let us see the Pending Karma of Mahatma Gandhi, Father of India Nation. 6th Lord is Jupiter, and we
all know that Jupiter means Guru, the one who shows the way and light to his students. Jupiter is also
the 9L of Father in natural zodiac and thus here in the case of Gandhi it is in the 7H of Public Life. Thus
he became the Father of the nation, showing the way to the whole nation and the world. His teachings
are still followed worldwide and he inspired revolutions from Martin Luther King to the current
Obama. Now this is for Indians, Jupiter as a planet is categorized as a Brahmin – caste which is a
scholarly class and does not fight and loves to eat. Jupiter here is retrograde so it will show some
qualities of a normal Jupiter and some of a retrograde and he showed here his quality of non-violence,
scholarly works and as it is retrograde he created his system of fasting. If he fasts for a cause the
Britishers would throw him in jail, then he would fast again in jail and the Britishers would be forced to
throw him out of jail. What a way he showed.

Barack Obama – The King

In his 6H there is Venus and the 6th lord Mer is placed in the 7H of ‘Public Life’. It is placed with Sun
which signifies Govt and is the King of the Planetary Cabinet, so he got the position of the King of

22
Earth (US President is considered the most powerful man) and this sun is the 8L of suddenness, which
is what happened to him. Now who is there in the 6H it is Venus which means money, so it was during
a time of economic recession he was the chosen one, now see the lordship of this Venus, it is the 10L of
Govt and 5L of power, this is what has happened in his life and this is what is his Pending Karma. Come
back to his 6L it is aspected by Saturn and Jupiter, which means he must take care of the common man
(Saturn) and also the affluent (Jupiter) and as this Jupiter is the 12L of previous karma, this 6L is further
fortified by Jupiter’s aspect. See the whole chart from Moon as the Asc, the 6L is Venus placed in the
2H of administration from the moon and in the 2H of speech. He rose to power due to his speeches
(more so as it is in the sign of Gemini- communication) and got into the most affluent administration of
all (Venus is affluence). This was his pending karma and you can see this is happening in the 4H of
education or for those who take 2H as primary education, he is doing reforms there in the education
field – again his pending karma. You can use the natural zodiac of Aries Asc and see that his 6L is
Mercury sitting in the 4H of Throne with Sun the King and he is no doubt sitting in the seat of the
King.

Abraham Lincoln – Father of USA

He needs no introduction, from astro point of view his time of birth is suspect. So as we don’t
have his exact time of birth let us look at his chart in this broad technique from Moon Asc and Natural
Zodiac Asc which is from Aries Asc. From Moon Asc his 6H is empty and its lord Mer who is the
natural lord of 3H in zodiac which as you read in this article 3H is the house of ‘Unlocking Of Karma
Through Actions’ and it is with Sun (King of Planets) in 2H of administration, thus he became the
President of United States. He successfully led his country through its greatest internal crisis, the
American Civil War, preserving the Union and ending slavery.

Now look from the natural Asc which is Aries and the 6L will always be Mer (use this hint for
all charts) and it is with Sun the King in the 11H of Accomplishments of Desires & Power. This is only
being spoilt by Saturn whose 4th aspect spoils this Sun Mer combination of Power. It was during
Saturn/Mer period he got assassinated if we take the B rating given by ADB, thus you can see how
Saturn spoilt this Mercury (Pending Karma) combination by giving death in Saturn/Mer period.

23
George Lucas – Star Wars Film maker

6H is vacant but the 6L is Mercury the planet of communication in 1H (whole life) and with planet
Venus the planet of entertainment and magnanimous wealth. So he communicated via his movies
which were big budgets. The lord of this Venus Mer conjunction is Mars (wars-fighting) and is
conjoined Dragons Head (Rahu- Movies) and thus he made movies of the unknown (Dragons Head-
Rahu) which were huge and big movies (it is with Jupiter who is also expansive). This was his pending
karma.

24
Although in some of the above examples one can clearly see how the Pending Karma technique is
working, in some cases one need to just see where Mercury is placed and in some cases you need to go to
the stronger of planet as reference or the asterism lord (nak lord) as co-association to come to the
conclusion. If there are requests then in a separate article would take up other cases of how to use this
simple looking technique but extremely complex at times and only superb mastery of astrology coupled
with great intuition can help one use this technique to see the Pending Karma. Just so that when
readers try it on many charts and not find it working smoothly, the need arises to mention two points

a) There are in total as of now 4 methods that Saptarishis Astrology is aware of which are concrete
techniques to find out the Pending Karma that must be done in this life to go the next level –
which is the real reason behind astrology and not predictions
b) At times it is better to switch the zodiac from Indian to Tropical (western) or Sayana System
(which is also Indian and some Vedic astrologers still use it and was in vogue in 20th century in
Maharashtra) or at the same time to use both the zodiacs and then use this technique. Right now
we are unable to comment on which zodiac to use on ‘which’ type of chart as a work called
Krishneeyam (dated around 4th or 6th century) contains a verse on the zodiac and we have been
unable to decode it exactly.
Still let us take the two zodiacs as a case study on Elvis Presley’s chart and though one must not study
this Pending Karma technique on charts of singers as classics are not clear on singers and the houses of
singers but still let’s venture into it.

Indian Zodiac – Elvis Presley

25
With the Indian Zodiac Chart 6H is empty and 6L Mars has gone into the 11H of highest achievements.
Some ancient texts give a clue on singers but mostly scared and confusing

Garga Hora Chapter 12 Verse 1248


1248. The Sun, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn in the 11th house: will be truthful, be chief in his
race, be very wise and be skillful in singing.

Garga Hora Chapter 4 Verse 298


298. Jupiter, Venus, Saturn in the 3rd house: interested in singing, be not sinful, be interested in
women's wealth, be prosperous, will locate hidden treasures, be dear to young women, and will be firm
in friendship.

Let’s see again 6L of pending karma has gone into the 11H whose lord Mercury has gone in the 2H of
speech and is with Sun the King of Planets, he was called the King. But still the pending karma is not so
easily seen and crystal clear. Now use Western Zodiac

Western Zodiac – Elvis Presley


The 6H is empty and the 6th lord (owner) is Venus the planet of entertainment and performance, it is in
the 2H of voice with Sun (The King & natural 5th lord of performer in the natural zodiac) and is
conjoined with Mercury, the singer and communicator and natural 3rd lord of singing. The dispositor of
this 2H is Saturn who is in the 3H of singing with North Node (Rahu) the natural planet of immortality
and the groovy planet, his songs were groovy and one would go round and round about him. He had the
capability of making you drunk over him and his songs without drinking at all. This was his pending
Karma which he completed and which is the job of the astrologer to prescribe and unlock. Thus you can
see that in this particular chart of Elvis, it is more easier to use the Tropical (Sayana) zodiac to decipher
his Pending Karma than the Indian Zodiac or better it is to combine both for e.g. a Gemini Asc with
Indian zodiac will have 6L Mars in the 9H of Guru, Teacher and Higher Knowledge and this natives
aim is to spread higher knowledge in jyotish and his pending karma was to serve his guru.

26
If we take the same chart via the western zodiac the Asc comes as Cancer and the 6L of Pending Karma
is Jupiter in the 8H of occult and astrology in the sign of Aquarius, the native has been successful in
bringing to light some rare hidden knowledge and manuscripts freely to the Astrology world, why so
since Jupiter is a planet of Light and where it sits it brings light to the house, whereas 8H of occult is a
dark & hidden house and here Jupiter brought out (light) the hidden knowledge in astrology unknown
so far to the astrology world right into the outside world. So you combine both and you would safer, at
the same time it is easier to predict even for us when a known celeb chart is given to us but on unknown
charts that easily it is not decipherable – only experience is the best teacher.

Inability to Predict – Pre-Release of Publitorial

A
s a practice the Publitorial is not shared before release with even the core team members except
Mentor. This time we made an exception and shared it with some friends wanting to
understand their view point on some of the controversial points of the Publitorial. Presented

27
12
here is an ICAS teacher, a voracious teacher, unbiased individual and one of the most novel researchers
in modern astrology. His response to the Publitorial is reproduced here with his permission.

Dear S,

1) At the outset the editorial is really excellent. After reading this I would admit that I do not know the
real astrology.

2) My opinion is there is nothing in this editorial to be edited or removed. But it has become very
lengthy and people may lose interest/track in reading it. If possible try to make it a two part. One part
can be article on "unlocking the karma".

3) Please go through the incident I am narrating here. On December 25th 1998 one person as a regular
routine started to go for morning walk at around 6:00 AM. As the climate was very chilly he wore
sweater and covered his face except eyes with muffler to beat the cold. After walking for sometime one
car came and stopped in front of him from back side and the person driving the car was shouting at him
with anger. Without knowing the mistake he committed he asked the man why he was shouting. Then
the man came out of the car and said why you tried to misbehave with my wife when she went for
morning walk. By this time one lady came out of the car and told her husband that this is the person
who caught her from back side when she was walking. Failing to understand what was happening to
him this person (who went for walk) tried to convince them the he is not the one who misbehaved with

the lady and probably she had mistaken identity and mistook him for someone and try to think twice
before blaming someone for no fault. But the lady and her husband were firm and sure about the person.

This story did not stop here and both the parties trying to prove their point. The lady gave a police
complaint on the person she identified for his mis behavior. The other side is the person was in a very
respectable post and he had a proven track record and none of his acquaintances believed that he could
do such thing. Every one supported him and some of the lady colleagues went and spoke to the lady who
had lodged the complaint and persuaded her to withdraw the complaint. Though the lady accepted to his
colleagues that she may be wrong but she does not want to withdraw the complaint as she was afraid of
her husband as he may take her to task for wrong identification.

Ultimately the person got rid of the complaint by the involvement of a very senior police officer with
the help of his boss. The person was unnecessarily involved in this scandal for no fault of his. Here the
lady also cannot be blamed as she had mistaken the identity. But the mental agony the native had was
enormous.

Can u guess who the person is? Its' me.

DOB: 26-08-1968 TOB: 09:44a.m POB: Hyderabad. I have Rahu in the 6th house. 6th lord Jupiter is in
the 11th house (Leo) in the star of Venus. I was running Rahu - Venus dasa. Venus is Lagna lord and
posited in the 11th house. If we go by BCP method I was 30 years old at that time so my 6th house has to
operate in the 30th year. [SA: Going into it minutely the event is 4 months past 30 but still Rahu will operate due
to 12th aspect of Rahu]

Why I narrated this is whether you can link the unlocking karma for this incident.

Regards,

K.

Post mortem is always easy but let us answer to Mr. K’s query as to how to see pending karma.
First and foremost pending karma is not one but obviously many and in many areas of one’s life. The 6th
house has Rahu, if he is an astrologer he is not an astrologer from this life but from previous life13 and it
is his deepest desire to be a great astrologer (sign is Pisces), apart from that the 6L is Jupiter
(knowledge) goes in the 11H of Jyotisha (astrology) in the sign of Leo (author) with Sun Mercury,
seeing this we have encouraged him to become a writer and his articles have created history so far. Now
see the sexual scandal, the 6H has Rahu that is Dragons Head and that denotes scandal as such and it is
in the 12th sign which signifies bed pleasures and sex so again something to do with that can happen.
Then see 6L has gone in the 11H with Sun (Govt/boss) and Venus (woman) and Mercury (colleagues)
with A8 (scandals) and this Venus is the 8L of scandals. It was his boss (Sun) who called up senior
police officers (Sun) and with help of colleagues (Mercury) that the problem (Venus) got solved. This
was his pending karma that he had to face unfortunately. Also since 11H is that of wife and children,

13
One can note the charts of some astrologers like K.N.Rao they will have Rahu/Ketu in the 6H.
29
either he must have gotten married or have had a child and after some time this scandal would
have erupted in his life, we don’t know re the same but will have to check. What we must admit is
though we had this chart since one year we could ourselves not see this scandal pending karma since the
native is one of the straightest men we have ever known and only thing that we saw was his pending
karma of an astrologer and writer that’s it. Technique no doubt works to the T but every time
applicability with 100 % accuracy only a Sage can do and let us astrologers start admitting it for a start.
Also what must be added here is though the chart holder says after reading this editorial that he realized
he does not know astrology, our posting the verbatim letter with his permission is not to show to the
world that teachers of astrology are below us or we above them in knowledge. If only we at Saptarishis
Astrology could be allowed by our families to tattoo on our hands ‘I Do Not Know Astrology’ it would
be one of those honest & most cherished moments in our life. May our Epitaph have it.
The moment more amount of astrologers come to know of a technique the planets who are
constantly creating & have consciousness come up with new methods to decode and deliver their results
thereby making the task of astrologers difficult, this is an unknown secret but that is the reason one of
14
the sages like Parasara said around 3000 years back that even great sages cannot easily decipher the
movement and results of the planets.

C.S.Patel Manuscript Centric Issue

N ow comes that part which an editor or publisher dreads, you as a publisher or editor or head of
an organization needs to appear publicly as the goody goody guy who can never get personal or
attack anyone or any concept personally and can’t be expected to write anything apart from
technical astrology. If you follow this you will become acceptable in all quarters and other organisations
will call you abroad and all over India and by the end of your life felicitate you which every editor
wants. But no one wants to take the issue of astrology that will make the ‘Real Change’. No one wants
to do the ‘Dirty Job’, no one has so far. No one wants to call a spade a spade and take the bull by the horn
since it is considered bad manners and more enemies are born and at the end of the day no awards, no
felicitations by Indian and Foreign organisations or no one will call you for lectures by which you can
make more money. Here at this crossroad where our image so far has been the goody-goody guys we
must take a bold step for what we stand for and believe in and to put the money where our mouth is. It
is for this reason we started Saptarishis Astrology and not for doing PR services and pleasing everyone.
So in this issue the Publitorial will be divided into 2 parts one where the Western cum Indian astrologer
can understand and the 2nd part where more of the Indian astrologers will be able to understand but the
western astrology astrologer is requested to also read that for some rare points on technical astrology. So
now we must talk & understand the meaning of Knowledge.

1.1 Process of Knowledge Dissemination

I t takes one to be fortunate to realize that by the end of our lifetimes we are not able to even master
15
one single work (book) of a Sage or ancient writer and the maximum that is available in English
language is around 20 classics out of which the modern astrologer has read utmost 2 classics that too
even after 20 years in this subject. Forget mastering them. We once read an interview of a very famous
Varanasi astrologer in Hindi (national language of India) who said the problem in astrology is it is a
science of extreme hard work since the available literature in astrology that needs to be read is around
3000 books (in Hindi) who has the time for it, most start shop after 15 books. Can you see the numbers
difference between what an English reading Indian astrologer and a Hindi reading Indian astrologer is ?
The English reading Indian astrologer is the most poorly read, having non-classical basis, no true guru
and has to resort to intuition for predictions or websites where he can alter his mundane astrology

14
He mentioned Sage Vasishtha and Brihaspati in his verse.
15
Mentor has a more extreme and honest view, he says understanding a single verse of a Sage can take lifetimes if one is
lucky. His view is not of arrogance this, scholars of astrology who have pursued it with honesty will agree.
30
predictions after the event has happened and show it as if he predicted it before hand, a practice
followed nowadays.

1.2 Minds Don’t Want Knowledge To Come Out

T he process of knowledge dissemination is the most difficult in astrology not because it is a


complex subject but due to the mentality of those associated with astrology. Famous astrologers
try their level best not to allow knowledge to come out, this is most unfortunate yet true part
even among the legends of astrology whom we students have idolized and when we come to know the
real truth about these Legends we feel ashamed that we idolized them since these were the ones who
hoarded good quality knowledge and manuscripts and only wanted to become the Modern Fathers of
Astrology to achieve fame. Whereas in the West it is far easier for knowledge to come out, if you have
astro knowledge in the west, you sell it via classes, lectures, teach per hour or through books and you
charge fees towards it but atleast the knowledge and experience of the astrologers goes out to the world.
Most western students of this science hence stick to teachers from their continent due to this and ease of
accent and non-judgmental nature of their western teachers. Over here in India the mentality of those
who hoard knowledge is to make students their slaves and still not give out the full knowledge unless
the student is a celeb or a Richie-rich guy or a woman, preferably a beautiful woman. For generations of
traditions in astrology grew with certain norms and rules to safe guard their knowledge and thus their
interests to not allow their neighbor astrologer to earn more claiming that it is to be given to only the
deserving. But now a new trend has arisen in India, to give out tradition secrets when only invited
abroad & minor ones in India or give those traditional big secrets when one can charge huge
dollars in courses to their Pets (chamchas in Indian language). They swear by traditional secrecy but it
comes out when $ is flashed or when a woman student comes in. All of us have seen so many teachers
falter to this problem and it is natural, as at the end of the day all of us are humans and who doesn’t like
$. None of us are holier than thou.
1.3 Availability of Knowledge

M ost of the astrological knowledge is held in manuscripts which are either in Latin, Greek,
Sanskrit and likewise other ancient texts. The need of the hour since last 100 years of dying
experts in these languages is to translate them into English the most universal language and
then to test that knowledge on hundreds of charts and then find out what is our lacking in
understanding that verse or aphorism. Let us give an example there was one of the most brilliant of
astrologers in India somewhere in the 6th century called Varahamihira who wrote a monumental piece of
work called Brihat Jataka but at the end he wrote that he has coded all the verses in that text. From then
on till now millions of Indian astrologers have studied his work and 100’s have translated this same
work but it was only one man in the early 20th century who gave a new meaning to one of the verses
from the said work on which we wrote an article called ‘The 19th Verse’ in the 2nd issue (volume 2). It
was ignored and left out by scholars in the 20th century due to rivalry. But that verse has so much of
hidden knowledge that we ourselves have been able to write on it only on one part and it reveals a new
system of timing events but still there are more than 10 articles and techniques that can be derived from
it, admin work takes up our time and the pain of not writing on those hidden methods in that 19th verse.
So you see what the original writer wrote in the 6th century, his work easily available but the true
meaning of the verse took around 1500 years to come by and then the process will start of aggressively
testing it and then after some 40-50 years it will either be accepted as a dictum or rejected, which means
even we can be wrong. This is the case of where the manuscript was available. What about the
techniques where the manuscript is not available at all.

1.4 Non-Availability of Knowledge

H ere comes the part where a lot of knowledge is available in manuscripts but no one takes the
effort to bring it out. If you bring it out no one will appreciate it and infact will see to it that
you don’t bring it out. The way they go about discouraging you cannot even be mentioned in
this space. The astrologers in India are one of the poorest; few lots lack funds but most lack the
inspiration on their own and the willingness to give out those manuscripts. With millions of

31
manuscripts lying untouched in every city library in India no one cares for them but everyone cries for
them, this is our state. One will easily see in a discussion between 2 astrologers that people don’t remove
knowledge out but the knowledge those 2 astrologers have will not be removed due to some secrecy law
that they themselves cannot explain or comprehend. Publishers in India have failed in their efforts to
bring out even 1% of these manuscripts into the public limelight and the maximum we can see is 30-40
quality classics coming out in India in last 100 years in English with poorest of commentaries except a
few and not so apt translations due to complexities of ancient languages which give multiple meanings.
As such publishing in India is not a profitable business. People can say that inspite of their being more
than 10,000 astro organisations in every lane of India which is true and no exaggeration and 1000s of
trusts being formed by astrologers in the name of astrology by famous astrologers not a single one of
them can be credited to bring out 5 quality manuscripts with commentaries out for the general astro
audience. If we say this, then all will become our enemies but someone has to start with the dirty job,
how does one inspire organisations especially international organisations to bring out translations of
manuscripts? The problem is worse in International Vedic Organisations who have not been able to
contribute in translation of manuscripts inspite of having better Sanskrit scholars abroad who are more
dedicated, honest and meticulous in their job. We can only request that this piece of Publitorial inspires
them to come forward in this, do joint ventures with Indian counter parts. Their complaint of not
getting manuscripts can be no longer a complain since Saptarishis Astrology volunteers and friends
have already uploaded numerous manuscripts and let us tell you this is just a start. The other problem
faced by many is the amount of red tapeism and bureaucratic hurdles one faces while getting manuscript
from libraries across India. Traditions that have manuscripts are a joke in the name of astrology
as they have not understood the meaning of Knowledge (Gyaan) since if they had they would have
freely given away those manuscripts and not hoarded it themselves. The only man to impress us so far
was Shri Madura Shastry from a village in India (Andhra) who said ‘This knowledge is not mine, it
belongs to the Sages. The Sages worked for the common man and this must be given out to the people’.
He has over 50 years distributed and donated rarest of rare manuscripts, no one like him. He is the
16
Karana of Astrology.

1.5 Purpose Of Knowledge (Gyaan)

W hy do you need knowledge since ‘The Main Reason behind Unhappiness is Insufficient
Knowledge’. Actually the correct translation might not come out in previous sentence so for
Indians here it is ‘Dukha Ka Main Karan Hota Hain Agyaan’. This is what mentor has
always taught us. Our own concept of knowledge was perverted and limiting since we grew up in India
where every senior astrologer and teacher teaches you that you must not give away astro information
easily. They teach you by example that you must make the student suffer, beg before you and worship
you before it is given, but still don’t give it to all who do the begging and worshipping. They put a lot of
myth and superstition to it and quote the verses of Sages. In 2006 this perversion took extreme form
when we would write in forums or speak to our best friends in coded language and never give out a full
technique. Even our hand written notes in text books were coded in such a manner that anyone who
borrows our books (borrowing books happens a lot in India) will not be able to understand it. Now we
ourselves can’t decode what we coded. Later we found out that this happens to most astrologers. But it
was only when we re-read the Last Book of Astrology, where the old Sage compares two forms of
knowledge. He says what great miracle can astro information do, it can make some astrologer predict
better or solve a humans difficulties by apt guidance. Then the Sage says that look at the man who
invented the medicine for Polio, do we even remember his name, no we don’t. He says today a by-pass
operation of the heart can be done since someone somewhere in the world understood the meaning and
power of true knowledge and shared it to everyone in the medical fraternity and thus world-over this
operation can be done, yes at a price, so what, atleast price (Fate) can get you that knowledge by which
your life can be saved, can your astro knowledge truly save a life, so why do you all hide knowledge in
the name of God and secrecy. Have you who recite mantras for hours for decades understood the
meaning of knowledge whereas a kid in medical science understands it so easily. The Sage is then asked,

16
Karana was a historical figure some 3000 years back who was known as the biggest donator ever. The only cause of
controversy among scholars is did he do it for name or was it out of real help to the down trodden.
32
how come some of the past sages then mentioned that this knowledge should not be given to everyone.
Our Sage of the Last Book of Astrology replies

a) Yes the past sages said don’t give it to everyone but to deserving, but they never said that don’t give
it to the ones in your own astrologers’ fraternity, atleast share it within your fraternity, otherwise
why would each Sage of previous eras write a book in the first place.

b) Some of you might argue that they never wrote a book but spoke it to their students and it was not
meant to be written about, if so and if this mistake has happened then why do you prescribe divine
foresight to us Sages, could we not see that this knowledge of ours would be written about and also
mis-used by many, were we very bad at Muhurtha (Election Time) of when we started our spoken
discourse.

c) Understand the meaning of Karma and don’t talk about Karma, Karma, Karma for 24 hours in your
writings and lectures when you have no clue of it. If a doctor writes and shares his discovery and
medical practices for use by other doctors, then when the other doctors use it to help people, some
part of that good karma will always come to the originator who shared that method or became a
platform for that method to be shared. So if you as an astrologer decided to share your knowledge
without ego, without the need for fame then pure part of this energy will go to other astrologers who
in turn will use it to help people and that good karma will in turn come back to you one day. If you
decide to share it for fame or only for money then the quantity and quality of karma coming back to
you will be reduced but not wiped out.

d) Today if only few have good knowledge of astrology then they tend to abuse it by sitting on
Thrones created by themselves, deriding others and wanting to not let go of the Throne and also not
allowing others to grow. So when good quality astro information comes out and is available to all
then misuse of power does not happen since there is no exclusivity left. It’s like air, it is freely
available everywhere, there is no tax on it. Plus most important is the karma of astrologers is not
spoilt by giving wrong predictions and guidance as they would have superior techniques. People
have over thousands of years said something wrong about astrologers that they should not see the
future and since they see the future their family lives is destroyed and poverty sets in on the
astrologer and his family. This is wrong though not totally untrue, yet here I would say it is the bad
karma of giving wrong advice and wrong predictions without studying into the science for 50-60
years that too with true honesty that makes their karma bad and their families suffer and poverty
reins in. When you see a chart first see if it is written in the chart if he/she would get good
predictions and direction in life, if it is not written then don’t predict. What do I say you all don’t
know how to see this? You all don’t even know in which charts astrology will not work, you all
don’t even know when your own predictions will fail. If you can’t see how and when your
predictions will fail how you will see honestly see chart of another. No doubt your lot is laughed
behind your back when your own wife is cheating on you and you did not see it, when your own
downfall you failed to predict or prevent through your remedial measures of mantras etc.

e) Energy Exchange is a concept that has been there from the start in the form of donation to teacher
(dakshina) and most of you don’t want to understand the meaning of Energy Exchange and thus you
all don’t allow knowledge to not come out. Look in the past 10 years how the energy has changed in
17
the world, how knowledge is available across boundaries. We of the ______ Lineage realized the
mistake that has happened for thousands of years from our end and now we are trying to change it,
there is resistance from ‘Energy Consciousness’ itself, it’s not easy to explain, the Old Energy is too
strong and the New Energy is too weak. Raise the level of Astrologers Consciousness and in few
decades the Energy Consciousness will change and the resistance would be reduced, knowledge will
come out more. Those who have hidden manuscripts and knowledge, those who gave knowledge in

17
Publisher: We have deleted that word as the name of that tradition needs an explanation to the Western readers and also
Indian readers and without detailed explanation it can be misunderstood.
33
bits and pieces and made you crave for it, beg for it, made you worship them, these past heroes of
yours, their names will come out and they will be the ones flogged in public forums, mark these
words there is no 99% in this prediction. When the Energy will shift, when the magnetic field of
earth is corrected once again, when the shift is complete then these gurus will fall and 6 year old kids
will come and flog them openly. These kids will blame you as to how come you allowed these gurus
to be created in the first place, how did you follow them, how did you become part of their
organisations, did you not have a decent bone in your body or were you only after some position in
their organization and to create money thereby. Forget you being judged after death, you will be
judged now by the New Kids On The Block.

f) Think of the science of medicine which gave you birth in the first place, yes you the astrologer was
given birth by some doctor who got that knowledge from somewhere, since someone gave his
knowledge and experience openly to your doctor for your well-being. When knowledge (of
medicine) did not distinguish you on taking this birth in a healthy manner in terms of caste, creed
and sex, to give you the best health to enjoy the fruits of God’s creation, who are you to deny that to
the world by withholding your knowledge of astrology and hiding your manuscripts, whether that
knowledge directly helps or indirectly helps.

g) The true meaning and worth of knowledge is when it is of use to increase the quality of life of
creatures, real quality increase and not illusionary increase. If it can’t increase then it shalst only be
called theory or illusionary theory that you learn in classrooms but can’t apply to help anyone.
Meditate on this for days and then you will be able to sift through a good teacher and an illusion
giver teacher, between a good technique and an illusionary one.

I t was only after thinking on what the Sage has written and observing how medical science has
progressed in the last 100 years due to openly sharing of knowledge and helping millions worldwide,
by comparing the primitive progress of astrologers we realized something. Then when we compared
the egos of doctors who save millions of creatures and don’t brag or boast about it as compared to
astrologers who think they are Gods here in India, we at Saptarishis Astrology realized that we were
wrong and thus this transformation happened (again). Although our knowledge of articles previous
written, that is written before this transformation has not come out in the open but there is one great
reward and that is as per what the Sage wrote. He said you all must try to understand Energy; which is
always changing and no doubt it is very difficult to comprehend energy which functions in double
dichotomy at times depending on which plane you are functioning with. At one plane Energy sees that
if you give 2 units of knowledge it gives you back 10 units in return.
Now an example to inspire others to join in the movement of bringing out knowledge would be
to tell you what you see of Bhrighu Easy Methodology series in Saptarishis Astrology which has
stunned the astrological world. This knowledge we did not have before we started this magazine and it
is only when so much of giving away of knowledge happened that the marvelous techniques of Bhrighu
Easy Methodology came to us and in return it was shared instantly with you without aggressive testing.
No doubt there are shortcomings in any method when it is not aggressively tested, ones reputation can
be damaged and also harm done but when you are dealing with your own brothers and sisters what is
the concern of formality within ones family, what damage to name can happen among family. Lastly let
us highlight the result of not sharing knowledge and with folded hands one begs every astrologer in the
world to share his knowledge easily without drama or attention seeking methods.

1.6 This Is Your Fate

O nce upon a time, long long ago there was a man who gained a lot of knowledge in astrology
over many lifetimes. He had gone so deep that it was unimaginable but in every lifetime he
hoarded that knowledge to create around him aura of respect and longing from others. He
loved when students would beg for him to share his knowledge; he loved when big famous people came
to him for consultation on his knowledge. The result was that there were too many people over lifetimes
who became jealous and hated him for his huge ego of knowledge as the weight of knowledge on his
head had not made him to bow down and be humble. He would demand huge money and attention for
even the smallest amount of his knowledge to be given to others. He would exhibit partiality of caste,
34
creed and sex in imparting his knowledge and make his students serve him like slaves for it. Then in
one lifetime he was cursed that when he requires this knowledge he won’t be able to use it, he won’t get
a teacher, astrology as a science won’t give him correct predictions and as he made people wait for hours
and days for a good prediction, so he will have to wait for years for the same and will have to move
from astrologer to astrologer but won’t get that prediction that will save or change his life. The curse
was so worse that he lost all his fortune and position in life due to astrologer’s wrong predictions. The
curse became more worse and said he won’t have the huge memory that he was proud of; he won’t be
able to remember something as simple as table of exaltation debilitation of planets for decades, he will
be pitied on this inability by his own self, he will forget his greatest techniques right when he, his wife,
his parents, his children and best friends require him to use those techniques/knowledge. And then in
one life time this curse will haunt him badly and may he become an ‘Example of the Sins Against
18
Knowledge’ for others to learn against mis-use of knowledge. As he misused his power to create fights
among fellow astrologers and do politics in the field of knowledge, may he face the same in multiplied
quantities? May he go around the world literally begging everyone to part with their knowledge?
This curse can happen to each of you as most of us are the astrologers from previous lifetimes, so
maybe in some lifetime in the future lets say you are born and roam around the streets of an

impoverished country trying to learn astrology, then you struggle for years you will still not get the
secret of astrology, then someone will play the role of Karma and tell you to start a magazine and you
will feel that it should be free since you belonged to the Old Energy and then you will be forced to put
all your penny into that venture and be that platform by which knowledge is given out, as in many
previous lifetimes you just did not give out knowledge. As you did not encourage other astrologers to
share their knowledge or say you did not encourage other astrologers on their works, so in this lifetime
you will not be encouraged and not helped by many. Your pockets will become empty, you will take
money on loan and your family will suffer and the Energy will be so strong that you won’t be able to
stop, each issue of your magazine will double in size but the Energy won’t allow you to stop the increase
in size of your magazine, making you thereby work more harder each time and you will work 365 days a
year (no exaggeration) for 15 hours a day without a break, nor have any technical resources also to do the
magazine, you will suffer from health problems - this will be your fate, think about it.

Vol 7 – C. S. Patel 2nd Memorial Issue - Part 2

I n continuation with the Part 1, this part of a very long but essential Publitorial will concentrate on
the need to dig deeper into books and manuscripts rather wasting time on forums and chats which
consume whole day & money of the sincere astro students. Also will be discussed ‘How our studies
need to be done’ otherwise huge wastage of time happens. In order to understand why we need to
dissolve ourselves in our books and manuscripts, let’s first see the end result of our studies, which are
predictions.

1.7 What Is A Prediction


Many of us spend decades in astrology without realizing ‘What is a Prediction’ – though it has many
levels let us touch the very mundane level of it here. The reason for touching this aspect is many of us
get impressed with some modern writers and spend years without digging deeper into classics, thinking
our so called heroes are the greatest or only mantras can give great predictions. Predicting outcome of an
event when the event is known is like 50:50 chance of success, one’s office housecleaning staff can also
predict the outcome of elections or predict an earthquake somewhere in the world as every 9 months
some earthquake keeps on happening. But when we know nothing about the background of the person
whose chart we see and are able to predict a ‘Rare’ event that is a class prediction.

O nce upon a time there was an astrologer by the name of K C Saxena who modern students do
not know much except that they have seen one or two books in his name in the local astro book
shop. K C Saxena was considered one of the foremost authorities on Bhrighu Astrology and
rumor was it he learnt it from one of his office colleagues, later went to Nepal and some locations in
India to collect more knowledge on this oldest branch of Indian Astrology of Sage Bhrighu. Once upon
a time Mr Saxena was travelling to Mumbai from Delhi and on his next seat in the plane there was a
man who did not believe in astrology and for 30 minutes he bothered Mr Saxena deriding astrology.
When finally Mr Saxena said he is an astrologer himself the man shamelessly took out his horoscope
from his bag and asked Mr Saxena to see it citing that he by chance had his horoscope in his bag as his
wife wanted him to meet some astrologer in Delhi.
Then Mr Saxena took few minutes on the chart and said ‘Your wife right now at this very hour, she
is learning Tabla (a particular Indian classical music instrument) with her Guru’. ‘In 2 months from now she
will run away with the Guru and leave you’. The man started shouting to Mr Saxena as to how childish is
astrology blah blah blah. Mr Saxena asked him ‘Isn’t at this moment your wife supposed to learn Tabla’. The
man realized that how did this astrologer predict that, he did not even ask if she has interest in music,
1
straight away said at this moment she is learning Tabla and not another instrument. He said ‘it’s true
she should be learning Tabla right now, but after she runs away with that Guru, will she come back?’
Mr Saxena then coolly gave out his card and said ‘when she runs away then you come to Delhi at my office
and then I will reply back’. Dot after 2 months the man was in Mr Saxena’s office. It is easy to guess what
happened.
On our way to the Himalayas we, P.M.Padia and Andree Leclerc stopped at Delhi to pay
respects to Mentor and then to Shri J.N.Sharma a friend of ours and a very dear friend of Mentor. We
like asking people about their Gurus and fondly listen as they pour out their love for their Gurus
something that is missing with the modern students of astrology. We asked Sharma ji about his Guru
K.G.Dutta as mentor had told a story to us when mentor took a famous industrialist to Late Shri
Dutta’s house for a consultation. Mr Dutta was known as the finest master of horary (Prashna) and in
front of Mentor Shri Dutta said ‘Immediately feed this man (industrialist) as he hasn’t eaten food for 2 days’.

1
In some classical texts/nadi readings there is reference to planets and various types of instruments.
36
Mentor thought ‘Ohh now my reputation is finished, I told the industrialist such great things about the
predictive power of Mr Dutta, he has obviously failed, how can such a rich man not have food’. After few
moments the Industrialist started weeping saying ‘It’s true I have not eaten for 2 days since I have had a fight
with my wife’.
So we narrated this story to J N Sharma, asking him fondly about his memories of his Guru and
the generation of his Guru. After a long chat something emerged when we mentioned to him about the
efforts the team of Saptarishis Astrology is taking to bring Ravana Samhita out. He said at the house of
his Guru Shri K.G. Dutta, there used to come an old and very pious Pandit (priest) whose name nobody
2
bothered to ask since all called him Panditji . He said Panditji would often come and it was said that he
was a Master of Ravana Samhita having committed the whole of it to memory. Now our ears were
widened since we knew that even today many old village astrologers swear only by the text Ravana
3
Samhita . The great astrologer that Shri Dutta was had even greater respect towards this Panditji for his
extensive knowledge in astrology. Now J N Sharma continued that one day while Panditji came Shri
Dutta was about to leave for a restaurant with one of his friends for his afternoon meals. So the Ravana
Samhita expert Panditji said to Mr Dutta ‘On the route to the restaurant you would find two snake charmers
who will meet you and beg you for money, after you give them few coins still they will refuse to let you go insisting
that you give them a Rupee (dollar) only and then they will let you go. After that when you reach the restaurant
there you would have to wait in queue as there would be lot of rush in the restaurant and infact you would think of
leaving but just at that moment a man will get up from one of the tables and ask you to sit in his place and that man
would be blind by one eye.’ Now Shri Dutta along with his friend started walking on the road towards the
restaurant while that Panditji trailed behind at a distance wanting to see how his prediction would shape
up. After few minutes of walking two snake charmers came on the road and asked Mr Dutta for money,
Mr Dutta looked behind and the Panditji smiled knowing his prediction was coming true. Mr Dutta
gave few coins but the snake charmers refused to let go and begged for one rupee. In the olden days one
rupee was a big amount and so reluctantly Mr Dutta dished out one rupee whilst looking back and the
Panditji had a huge naughty grin on his face as his prediction was coming true. Then when Mr Dutta
reached the restaurant he saw to his dismay but true to the prediction of the Pandit that the restaurant
was packed, whilst they were about to leave, a man got up from one of the tables and offered Mr Dutta
his seat to take meals. Mr Dutta just then noticed that the man was blind from one eye. Mr Dutta who
had previously seen so many great predictions of the Panditji come true was once again shocked for such
a novel prediction to come true.
We can go on and on regarding some of the other great predictions of this Ravana Samhita
Pandit and Mr Saxena but would reserve it for some other issue. What is important is for us to admit
that we don’t think so in our lifetime we would be able to make such kinds of predictions; their
knowledge is lost, not documented in books, not encouraged by publishers and organisations that existed
even then due to politics. This knowledge still existed it seems just a few decades back but how can
today’s Paramparas (traditions) who claim to be 800 years old and having the experience of 800 years

2
In olden days and even in modern day Varanasi still every scholar of shastra will be called either Guruji or Panditji without
bothering to ask ones name.
3
Authenticity of Ravana Samhita is doubtful but so far we have found 2 versions and the most original of them is available
in a place below Varanasi is what most scholars in Varanasi told us. This version inspite of our volunteer’s efforts have
evaded us. Beloved friend Prof Ramachandra Pandey, Ex-Head Jyotish Dept Banaras Hindu University has given us more
specifics but no contact number ‘A pandita named Vagishwari Prasad Pathak resident of Gurvalia village in Deoria District
near Gorakhpur, brought this book the Ravana Samhita from Nepal. Now that Pandit is no more, but his son Kamakhya
Prasad Pathak is using this book in his Astrological practice.’ Another team member Ashutosh Kumar says that in
Muzaffarpur, Bihar has been to this Pandit and saw it but he wouldn’t share. The one in our possession is not in manuscript
form and we ourselves doubt if it is full or totally original version but so far from the commentary that we have published in
previous issues you can make out that inspite of its non-original manuscript form, the rules mentioned on nakshatras in
Ravana Samhita is most stunning and over rules all nakshatra books so far published. No doubt Ravana was a great scholar
and even in the Jyotish famous area of Darbhanga, Bihar the Jyotishis pray to Ravana daily is what is told by Ashutosh
Kumar. Another volunteer who has visited the Gorakhpur area Ravana Samhita pandit claims that it contains a lot of
mundane astrology prediction (not found in our version) and this prediction his uncle has observed for 30 years all becoming
true. All in all the old astrologers belonging to the North Indian Belt of India have often quoted the greatness of Ravana
Samhita and though young ones will ignore such rules given in it but the village astrologers commit it to memory to make
stunning predictions is what has observed over many years.

37
cannot make such predictions. People like this Panditji never bothered to set up shop outside their house
or create a website, they lead simple lives and did not indulge into marketing and PR, their predictions
spoke about their knowledge. Just of the cup, Mr Saxena is the father of modern author Shanker Adewal
who has written many books published by Sagar Publications. But then astrology is so vast that it is not
possible for any father to dish out his complete knowledge and experience to his own son even if willing
within a lifetime.

1.8 After Manuscripts Are Translated What Next

T his is the toughest part where you come in. It is easy to blame that manuscripts are hidden or in
libraries and sanskrit scholars are so egoistical that it is difficult to get any work done out of
them. But still few Sanskrit scholars have translated some works and are we studying things the
way shastra is to be studied? Let us see how shastra was taught not so long ago by an example. Shri
Paresh Desai one of our esteemed writer comes from a Parampara, his father was the legendary
Ravindra Desai, family astrologer of the biggest industrialist in India at that time, owner of Mafatlal
Company. Mr Ravindra Desai learnt astrology from Gurukul in his home town in Gujarat and then
from Banaras. First he was asked to mug up 15 classics and only after that the Guru started teaching the
students wherein the Guru would give reference on these classics e.g. references on Adhi Yoga from all
the classics that they had mugged up and then taught what works and what does not with the logic
behind the yoga. So both mugging and understanding the classics and also experience of the Guru came
to be learnt. Then you would go deeper into each classic say for e.g. Brihat Jataka and you would be
asked to read all the 40 commentaries on it and then you would be asked to think on each verse to grasp
its meaning and then test it practically. For e.g. the most revered astrologer Suryanarayan Vyas of
Ujjain whom Dr Raman used to regularly consult when he wanted the charts of Nehru family members
always used to say that Laghu Parasari is the Gita of Astrology/Bible of Astrology.
This work of 40 (42)4 verses looks easy but if you go Real Deep you would find it extremely
confusing. But you would surely realize that the whole of practicing astrology is in Laghu Parasari hence
every scholar has attempted to write a commentary on it. In recent times a close friend who is from
Gujarat, India known for his stunning predictions has done some original work on Laghu Parasari but
still it is a short coming and is not well explained in his work due to lack in command of English
language. What is needed today is clarity in thoughts of writers, to explain classical verses in a precise
and clear cut language, only two names come to our mind who have already worked cum published on
classical literature in modern times, who can do justice to the work in English language, our friends K S
Charak and Ernst Wilhem, hope one day they take up Laghu Parasari.

1.9 Theory Vs Experience & The 18 year rule

T hen the process of learning goes to experience, after you have studied all the 40 sub
commentaries on Laghu Parasari or such ancient works is the process of hunting down experts
all over India who have practiced those techniques mentioned in those verses for minimum 20
years. The Last Book of Astrology insists on 18 years. Why 18 years we don’t know? Earlier we tried to
do Fit-o-logy that every student of astrology does by bringing in some mystic element to each statement
or event of one’s life and thought that 18 is near the cycle of Saturn (19 year dasa) but that is one’s own
thinking. The thing is Mentor having spent decades travelling all over India and burning huge amounts
of wealth realized with experience that unless one learns a method from an astrologer who has practiced
‘Professionally’ that technique for 18-20 years it is no use learning and adding confusion to one’s mind. He
is obstinate about this part and won’t budge having burnt his bridges many times earlier. The advantage
that he gained was he would know who in which village of India is an expert in Yogini Dasa, who is on
Kalachakra Dasa, who in Bhrighu Astrology and who in Padanathamsa Dasa, who in Chara Dasa and so
on. Who is good in longevity, who in marriage timing, who knows nakshatra well and so on. Trust us
this experience in each technique/subject/text is to be gained ‘Directly’ sitting for days/years in front of
each teacher and not from that teacher’s article. In an article not even 20% of the technique comes out –
this is the hidden truth that nobody tells you nor did anyone tell us until we experienced. The problem
is people are giving lectures and writing articles on a technique of astrology without spending 18 years in
that technique including us as we are also guilty of this mistake via our BSP methods which have not

4
There are two versions available one of 40 verses and other of 42 verses.
38
been perfected for 18 years by us. Ideally one must not write a single article before he has spent 30-35
years in astro studies. A mail that came to us….

Dear Saptarishis Admin,


Pranam Sir

(SA: some part deleted & edited)

You all must write about the practice of students giving lectures and writing articles without spending
time perfecting that technique. As a result there can be a chance that some incorrect knowledge can
come out. Some of us just use 4-5 books on transits and prepare articles.

I am not trying to defame someone but wanting to improve standards in astrology, so only as an
example see what I am trying to point out in this forum message on ….. this Jaimini forum on __ Oct
(SA: deleted this part of the link message since it was pointing to someone wanting to write an article on
Ashtakvarga in some time and asking for references on studying further on ashtakvarga, the sender of that post on
the forum has only 6 years in astrology and not even 6 years in ashtakvarga hence probably this mail to us, it would
not be proper to discourage that hardworking young student to write on ashtakvarga & hence this mail by the
complainant can be interpreted as petty politics which we would like to avoid getting into and rather encourage
people to write articles even if young but stating their number of years of experience or experience in number of
charts with a particular technique. We are not watch dogs or an organization and request other mails that come to
us about forum politics to avoid coming to us, but yes we do not prefer our writers to be of non-controversial image
so you can educate us if need be at times since we avoid articles from writers whose public image is suspect or
tarnished.)

Why are you not doing something about this practice, your organization has representatives all over the
world and is the largest you can set up guidelines for conduct and practices in astro writing. (SA: We are
not an organization but a business entity and refuse to become an organization or a watchdog, as the moment
organization comes in astrology it becomes more of organized politics than organized astrology). You see my
father studied astrology in his small town. In olden days student was to learn shastra for 30-40 years
before Guru gave Agya (SA: agya means instruction) to write, now all are let loose it seems and no Gurus
object. Guru Sishya parampara of India no doubt is finished.

2.1 Visiting Some Classics Every Year

M ost in modern India learn from books of modern authors and somewhere down the line some
knowledge is not passed on from available classics to the books of the modern authors. This is
a huge problem and after 3-5 years of the study one realizes that one should read only classics.
After reading one or two classics the student who’s Saturn might not be strong will go back to modern
authors or search for Gurus on the net or classes or courses for easy learning. Unfortunately there is no
easy way out and you must develop a habit of revisiting those classics every year, reading them again
and again otherwise the mistakes in ones learning that has happened in the last 100 years of astrological
magazines and books will happen to you and who will suffer your clients and your bad karma will only
increase, your remedies on yourself will not work. Coupled with this the need of the hour is to bring
more classics in English including tooth-combing each classic as we read, otherwise one’s whole life will
be a waste by not understanding the most basic fundamentals of astrology. Let’s see some verses from a
chapter of BPHS by going through the tooth-combing operation which has been missed by most gurus
and courses offered in the world on Vedic astrology.

39
1) If you ask anyone in astrology which is the house of servants they would normally say 6H, this
is the way it has been taught to all of us, apart from this even Gurus don’t mention any other house, but
should we not go deeper and find from our existing works like BPHS etc. E.g.

िवबमं भृॅाऽािद चोपदेशूयाणकम ।्



िपऽोव मरणं िवज्ञो िा िनरीक्षयेत ॥४॥
vikramaṁ bhṛtyabhrātrādi copadeśaprayāṇakam |
pitrorvai maraṇaṁ vijño duścikyācca nirīkṣayet ||4||

Parasara says 3H for servants; one can refer to Chapter 11, Verse 4 of BPHS, Santhanam version, Ranjan
5
Publications Page 121. In Varanasi Edition, by Pandit Padmanabh Sharma , Chaukhamba Surbharti
Prakashan, Varanasi , First Edition 2004 it is Chapter 12 (instead of chap 11), Verse 4, Page 61 and even
in the Hindi version, Ranjan Publications by Dr. Suresh Chandra Mishra it is Chapter 12, verse 4, Page
125, but everywhere it is 3H for servants. This point has been ignored till date in most articles. No doubt
the 6h of servants also works but so does 3H which experience will teach.

2) In same Chapter 12 dealing with houses called BhavaVivekAdhaya Parasara says enemies to see
from 2H too, whereas all of astrologers take mainly 6H for enemies.


धनधां कुटुां मृजालमिमऽकम ।्

धातरु ािदकं सव धनानािरीक्षयेत॥३॥
dhanadhānyaṁ kuṭumbāṁśca mṛtyujālamamitrakam |
dhāturatnādikaṁ sarvaṁ dhanasthānānnirīkṣayet ||3||

This word ‘Enemies’ is mentioned in Santhanams version in his translation of the above verse and in
Dr Suresh Chandra Mishras and Varanasi Edition it is mentioned. It being in Hindi, modern Indians
don’t want to read Hindi and some can’t so the need that we mentioned earlier of translating things
‘Well’ in English is most essential. After it is in English a more wider range of people can test if the
translation is correct and lastly if the verse of the Rishi works or not in real practice. Parasara also says
8H for enemies in the same chapter & 12H for Types & Description of Enemies. Most even ignore that
2H is house of family, Parasara has used the word Kutumbh which means family.

3) In the same Verse 4 the word Upadesha has been used, which loosely translated means Initiatory
instructions that one receives is what Santhanam wrote, it can be understood as ‘The Advice that You
Receive’ via your ear.

िवबमं भृॅाऽािद चोपदेशूयाणकम ।्



िपऽोव मरणं िवज्ञो िा िनरीक्षयेत ॥४॥
vikramaṁ bhṛtyabhrātrādi copadeśaprayāṇakam |
pitrorvai maraṇaṁ vijño duścikyācca nirīkṣayet ||4||

This has been ignored by all scholars, this is the house of most importance for practicing astrologers
since it shows when not to see the chart of a client, when to just let go of a chart, whose chart to avoid.
Why do astrologers predictions fail on certain charts inspite of being a good predictor. Nobody talks
about this concept or word used by Parasara even in scholarly circles but you can get it by digging
deeper into classics savoring each word of it and going through various translations of the same classic.
Even an article on this word with examples won’t suffice to say how important it is and how it has been

Jan 2008 and though he had promised to write articles for us but due to some issues he has not been able to do so.
40
ignored till date. Same way most of us miss out on the 3H to be house of Parents Death (not just
mother) which Parasara pointed out.

4) Ask anyone in India which is the house of Friends everyone says 11H, but here in Chapter of
Houses (Chp 12) Parasara ‘also’ says 4H by using the word ‘Bandhu’ which means brother hood, a bit
closer than just friend like a best friend, as best friend is like your own blood brother, close to you
generally speaking.

ूं मातृसौािदकािप।
वाहनाथ ब

िनिधं क्षेऽ ं गृहं चािप चतथु ार्त पिरिचये ्
त॥५॥
vāhanānyatha bandhūṁśca mātṛsaukhyādikānyapi |
nidhiṁ kṣetraṁ gṛhaṁ cāpi caturthāt paricintayet ||5||

Santhanam probably translated it as relatives instead of ‘Close Friends/Brotherhood’.

5) Something often missed out is that 5H is for Power & Fall from it, as Parasara used the word
Rajya which can be understood as Kingdom for 5H in Verse 6 of Chapter 12

ु  ैव ूबकम।्
य - मौ तथा िवां बे

पऽराापॅं ् त प् ऽामयाद

् बधः॥६॥
yantra - mantrau tathā vidyāṁ buddheścaiva prabandhakam |
putrarājyāpabhraṁśādīn paśyet putrāmayād budhaḥ ||6||

6) 6H is an enigma when it comes to super fine understanding even to us due to lack of Sanskrit
knowledge. The word used is Sapatni Mataram, which by Varanasi and Suresh Mishra edition says &
can mean 2nd woman - Mistress (other woman) or 2nd wife whilst you are still married to the 1st one (since
Suresh Mishra has used the word Sauth).

ं ैव ोणािदकान।्
ु ाकशानां शऽू

सपीमातरं चािप षभावािरीक्षयेत॥७॥
mātulāntakaśaṅkānāṁ śatrūṁścaiva vraṇādikān |
sapatnīmātaraṁ cāpi ṣaṣṭhabhāvānnirīkṣayet ||7||

Maataaram means Mother In Law (6H) as per Varanasi edition whereas most of us take the 10H (4th
from 7th) for mother in law. Another meaning of Sapatni can also be loosely understood as the maid
who stays with wife as per some scholars (in olden times the maid was given as dowry and stayed with
your wife in your house for life)

7) Ask anyone for travels they say 3, 7,9,12 but Parasara says 10th House for Foreign Stay
(Pravasaasya) but does not mean ‘will not come back’ (subtle difference between this and permanent
foreign residence). This point has been ignored by most.

ु था।
रां चाकाशवृिं च मानं च ैव िपत

ूवास ऋणािप ोमानािरीक्षणम॥११॥
rājyaṁ cākāśavṛttiṁ ca mānaṁ caiva pitustathā |
pravāsasya ṛṇasyāpi vyomasthānānnirīkṣaṇam ||11||

The people take only 6H for debts but in this verse 11 it uses the word Debts (Rinsyapi). So one should
see from 10H Debts too.
41
8) Now ask anyone which is the house of wife and children they would classically speaking it is 7H
and 5H but Parasara in Verse 12 uses the word PutraJaayadikasya – Putra means children and Jaaya
means wife so probably Santhanam translated it as son’s wife.


नानावभवािप ु
पऽजायािदक च।

अं वृिं पशूनां च भवानािरीक्षणम॥१२॥
nānāvastubhavasyāpi putrajāyādikasya ca |
anyaṁ vṛddhiṁ paśūnāṁ ca bhavasthānānnirīkṣaṇam ||12||

Whereas Varanasi and Suresh Chandra Mishra edition is clear to say in 11H see Children and Wife
(they do not say son’s wife). 11H for children and wife we found out with observation, we lectured on
this at Ahmadabad in a lecture arranged by Upendrasingh Bhadoriya & Sanghvi ji, and then the scholars
there challenged to quote verse, same night we along with Bhadoriya spent hours going through various
translations and found the verse.

We do not know Sanskrit at all and know 20 % of Hindi hence our above observation can be wrong at
some places and would happily accept corrections but what has been drawn from above is what is
followed in common lexicon & also by consulting other scholars. One can infer what the Sage has so far
said has been ignored till now or vice versa, but may it atleast make you a voracious and tooth-combing
reader.

2.2 The Controversy & Ambiguity of Verses

T wo things are important, One is studying the shastra like a shastra and the other is gaining from
experience as to what works amongst the written word. When we do not have even 1 % of what
our ancients wrote people spend time debating on forums on any topic in astrology or on
mythological points which are only symbolic like South Node (Ketu) not having aspect since he does
not have head. If ketu was a demon how was he made a graha and what happened after Vishnu severed
his head, was he given the head of a serpent by Vishnu, was he granted the status of graha, how was he
granted that status – this nobody asks nor do they go deep into the mythology is the complaint of those
who use Ketu’s aspect. Most important that should guide you in your practice of astrology is what
works, and good majority of practicing & utmost successful astrologers use aspects for Ketu. One of the
most important debates lead by modern scholars is when Rahu Ketu are only mathematical points and
not physical planets, how can they have physical aspects. This is a very important point and should be
used in this manner to see if they were only physical points how did some of our ancients even mention
aspects to rahu, getting verse for aspect of ketu might be difficult but why did they even mention
aspects (dristhis – sight) to Rahu in the first place, did they not have the basic intelligence to know that
a mathematical point cannot give physical aspect/sight.
Let us look into some verses which do give some hint on the aspects of the nodes which has been
ignored so far otherwise you would land up like us who were insulted rudely by mentor during our 3rd
meeting with him at Oberoi’s Mumbai, when we asked him if there is any classical base for nodes
6
having aspect, he retorted sharply if you have not read jyotish or BPHS then don’t waste my time.
Today whip masters like him can only make us better students. Kindly note the words marked in brown
in the Sanskrit verse.

Mentor had access to elderly parampara people who had different versions of BPHS than available in the market but he has
not been successful in bringing them out due to socio-economic constraints & unwillingness of people to share manuscripts.

Rahu (and Ketu, if we take Tama to mean both rahu and Ketu) aspects 5th and 7th with full strength,
3rd and the 6th by 1/4th strength aspect, 2nd and 10th with half strength and it aspects own house by

Gopeshkumar in his commentary on Jataka Parijata published by Motilal Banarasidas, also gives below
shloka, and credits the BPHS for this shloka (This is the shloka that also appears in Santanam's book if

Dr Raman’s Astrological Magazine – March 1969 Issue

E ven after searching for 6 years to find this issue of the Astrological Magazine of Dr Raman we
could not get our hands on the full article for verification. Incidentally this page that is being
produced below was of another article whose by mistake photocopy was done from C S Patel’s
house when we were working on Navamsa there with him, as it was a mistake in photocopying by the
shop keeper you will find strike lines on the page below. Kindly note the title of the article it is ‘My

7
Publisher: This version is by Tarachand Shastri & the original by Venkateshwar Press is very old. What is to be noted is
that it is said that Tarachand Shastri, got the original manuscript from the Maharaja of Darbhanga from the Maharaja’s own
library, every vedic astrologer knows the history of the region of Darbhanga and the great role of the kings of Darbhanga
with regards to original vedic scriptures. The above verse is not found in Santhanams version if one is not wrong.
43
Experiences In Nadi VIII’ and could be by Dr Raman himself, we don’t know. If someone has this
article pls send it to us. Then note the part on the right center marked in Red lines where Nadi itself
mentions crystal clear the 9th aspect of Ketu.

All of us know that when a genuine nadi is gotten the predictions are more stunning than all the
astrologers combined since it is the Sage talking. Before one ventures and say any principle is not
working, one must first quote what other authorities/references in the past have quoted/written on it
and then denounce it as our experience, without quoting verses the subject (Shastra) cannot be learnt is
what the old Indian real tradition (parampara) is. There is no alternative way to learn, otherwise wrong
knowledge (agyaan) results. Especially if you are a Guru or plan to teach via phone or courses you must
quote verses otherwise you will help in blocking your students mind by not teaching him to explore
further.

2.3 Manuscripts & Translations

T he amount of hard work it takes to get a single manuscript out of any person in India is
daunting and hence so far most of our elders have given up. Astrologers can ignore and part
with their wives but not with manuscripts or old astrological works, they won’t study it but
won’t allow you to get to them. If they know of someone who has it they will see to it that they will
easily mislead you without realizing that Saturn is being spoilt in their charts. So far Saptarishis
Astrology’s Team has uploaded only a miniscule number of manuscripts, yet to get them one has to part
with good amount of money or beg, yes its begging in front of astrologers whose ear drums don’t
function right when you are begging, whose heart are made up of stone, but when dollar is flashed
(rupee does not work easily) the manuscript will be parted saying ‘the sage wants it to reach Denmark it
seems’. That’s it Sukra nadi (not Sukar nadi) is gone forever and astrologers in India will never
8
understand the meaning of Neechabhanga (debilitation cancelation) . Then the laborious task of
sending it to various scholars in India, resources are used for that and then waiting for months and
nothing comes back from the scholars. One only feels ashamed when one is constantly reminding
famous astrologers here in India to part with their manuscripts, they agree but somehow courier services
malfunction in cities malfunction always when manuscripts are to be parted and freely given to the
world. We won’t take names of those legends in astrology and may they be thankful for it. Then the
problem of translation……

8
Unless Sukra Nadi is translated the true meaning of NeechaBhanga will never be understood, there is a special verse in it.
Our efforts to get it from Denmark is on since 3.5 years, lets pray.
44
The worst problem is out of 10,000 people on forums 8 will come forward to help and 7 out of
them will just disappear when we send manuscripts to them. Imagine this happening to you not once
but 60-65 times in 4 years, what will you do, either you give up or cry like a kid and curse from your
heart when it happens to you every time. You must also be prepared to face the egos of those who have
knowledge of any language. Regarding translation this mail was sent to us 2 months back when we
passed a rare work on Jaimini called Jyotish Phalaratnamala’ of Krishna Mishra duly translated by Shri
Chandrashekhar Sharma to a volunteer for proof reading:-

Dear SA, (he means Saptarishis Astrology)


After reading Jyotish Phalaratnamala of Krishnamishra translated by Ravindra Bhagavat and Sharmaji I
have realized that me having spent 9 years in Jaimini parampara on internet forums is a waste. Only
one thing can be understood after Jyotish Phalaratnamala is read that is all of us have wasted our time in
Jaimini astrology. In earlier mail you said you are doing more works and when you all publish the full
of these works that you have started on Phalaratnamala, Kalpalatta, Jatasarasangraha,
Sutradaprakashika I think it would be easier for us to realize that in this life we can never understand
Jaimini astrology. I pray you to success in finding Sanskrit scholars who can translate them and
encourage people like Chandrashekhar Sharma, an old hand in astrology to continue what he is doing.
Many know Sanskrit but you will find a dearth of them when it comes to dirtying their hands and
putting their heads under the sword of real translation. You see scholars of Sanskrit who have gone to
USA tell us ‘It is the prerogative of one whether to do translation or not’. Sometimes it takes lifetime to
understand God or Knowledge even if for years one does Homams and Havans. One of the most noted
singers in India, Asha Bhosale gave an interview on the front page of Bombay Times in the month of
September, and she said ‘If God has given you an ability then you should use it for the good of people’. We are
sure she does not do hours of homam daily but understands the meaning of Vidya as singing is also a
Vidya. What is the use of learning sanskrit and proclaiming oneself great in sanskrit when from 30
years of one’s existence ‘In Sanskrit’ one cannot translate a single manuscript or work. Sometimes
Indians learn in Universities that are sponsored by Govt through tax payers money like ours and then
they go to America and settle down forgetting that the very reason they can eat and live in comfort in
America is due to tax payers money like us, the very reason they can get scholarships in sanskrit back in
India is due to us. Shameless followers of theirs can only keep quiet and not point out the flaw of their
heroes and these gurus are more shameless when they write in forums ‘I am a good sanskrit scholar’.
Sir, if you are a scholar you would never say I am a scholar that is for the world to say so. Vidya
(knowledge) is 4H, whether mother’s milk is there or as some take it as 7H for mother’s milk which can
be interpreted as the arudha of knowledge being 4th from 4th. This Debt of Mothers milk is only given
when what you learn from your mother (education) is given out to the society (7H-public) and hence
we can say that people like Shri Chandrashekhar Sharma are giving out the Debt of their mother’s milk by
translating works in sanskrit, even though he being a humble man claims he is not a scholar of sanskrit
in contrast to others who want to be leaders but not followers of the science, a formula for destruction in
Jyotish. We bow down to Chandrashekhar Sharma who has not talked about humbleness and
scholarship but demonstrated it. You are hereby requested to publish this not because I want to take
revenge but so that I can inspire 100s who know Sanskrit to come forward and work as a Team in
translating Jyotish work, maybe this is the karma of this letter. Today we need teams and not
individuals. It would be nice if don’t edit this.

Regards,
P……

2.4 Manuscripts & Jaimini Astrology

O f all branches of astrology today Jaimini Astrology has risen in the last few decades thanks to
efforts of few nice souls like Iranganti, K.N.Rao & Sanjay Rath. Inspite of their hard work the
subject is too huge & nothing substantial has come out and a lot is to be done with the road
wide ahead. Most of us young ones feel that everything in Jaimini Astrology is already revealed and
tend to use it to make predictions and spoil the lives of people. The worst Karma is considered when self
appointed Gurus along with titles of Gurus are dished out and naïve folks tend to believe when we see
complex techniques and calculations with more complex conditions that keep on changing every 3 years.
45
Today more ill-karma is done in the name of Sage Jaimini than ever in the history of astrology. It is
when you will become a victim not once but several times and lose your career & status forever, lose
your life path forever, (mark forever) and lose $ 28,000 dollars plus a possibility of not getting back
another $ 34,000 due to bad predictions of Jaimini astrology parampara astrologers, then you will resolve
on one thing which is to either

a) Expose the crap in the name of Jaimini that is happening OR


b) Help the Gurus & students of Modern Jaimini Astrology Paramparas by providing them
manuscripts

Some of us here in Saptarishis Astrology like Ravindra Bhagavat chose the Option B. We knew that the
glory of Jaimini Astrology is lost forever with most manuscripts not available in the form of
commentaries which are the real backbone of Jaimini Astrology of whatever survived little of Sage
Jaimini’s work. We knew that today predictions are not possible with the current knowledge of Jaimini.
Why so, since not a single Jaimini internet parampara astrologer can ever predict the way Late Vemuri
Shastri used to do ‘To The Day’ and again not like Late D K Sen, who was a very close friend of
mentor. D K Sen was known to predict marriage to the week, years in advance and at times the job to
9
the day. Forget predicting to the day, predicting 10 major events of one’s life are not possible by current
day Jaimini Astrology this you would find with costly experience, but how could Vemuri Shastri do
10
that. Credit must be given not for name sake but truly to K N Rao who lead the International
Renaissance in Jaimini astrology via his Chara Dasha. The unfortunate part is what he has written in
his book is not even 20% of what he uses (as communicated to us by him via email in 2006) & due to
world not wanting more he refuses to write more on it. But what we can request students is for atleast
next 150 years not to bother about Jaimini Astrology just read it ‘A Bit’ but don’t spend much time on it
otherwise you would waste years in it and get nothing. Your state would be like of most astrologers who
have reached age of 70, spent time on 100 dasas and only in privacy can admit that it was a mistake of
not sticking to one or two dasas in Parashari. If something is a consolation our 6 years on net forums
was wasted and mentors 30 years on Jaimini astrology. Stick to Parashari and little bit of nadi and you
can achieve wonders. As per our experience read K N Rao’s Chara Dasha twice then observe each event
through the method of his chara dasha, in a day atleast 5 events you must observe on multiple charts,
then make your notes. After 1-2 years you would develop your own method of interpretation & trust us
it would work fabulously as this has been the experience of senior astrologers. Please note if you only
practice what is given verbatim in KNRs book after 3 years you would get only 50-55 % of accuracy but
if you take his book or Vemuri as your true Guru and make your own efforts knowing that he left hints
in his book (KNRs), also in his magazine and develop your own method the accuracy level can reach at
times even 70% depending on your own capability. Apart from Chara Dasa do not (DO NOT) touch
any other dasa till next 7 years or till you are mature enough to handle complexities in astrology.

T his is the state of Jaimini Astrology and that’s the reason when we resorted to improve
standards of Jaimini Astrology as that branch of astrology consumes the net forums and thereby
many lives are destroyed we approached Iranganti Rangacharya and Madura Krishnamoorthi
Shastri from Andhra Pradesh, as Andhra is considered the Land Of Jaimini where maximum work
happened in the past on Jaimini. These two have spent exactly 50 years (50 by 2009) in Jaimini astrology
whereas the average age of Astrologers on net forums is not even 30 forget the experience of them, even
paramparas age is not 50. Due to old age of Maduraji and Irangantiji, so far we have been able to remove
out only few articles than what was our goal. Here we have failed and it has been a costly failure

9
Actually using any form of current knowledge of astrology it is impossible to predict 5 major events with periods to be
honest.
10
Pls note that we are not students or hardcore fans of KNR and are not propagating him but as an off the cup remark, he
was the only astrologer who predicted to the publisher of Saptarishis Astrology that we would be writing a book in 2008.
This prediction was done in Oct 2004. But instead of a book Saptarishis Astrology Magazine was launched, still his
prediction holds sound. It is unclear if he used Jaimini astrology for the prediction as we are a bit sure that he knows more
about Bhrighu Astrology but does not mention about it in his writings.
46
knowing that once these 81 year olds are gone there would be none to save the Fate of Jaimini Astrology
from the classic angle. Hence we sent one of our contacts Shanmukha, a young enthusiast and ex-SJC
Hyderabad discussion group team member to Iranganti ji to write articles for Iranganti. The Master was
old and after having being cheated by many so called students did not want any more student or
volunteer to help him write. He resisted a lot. We had to push so much for Iranganti ji to accept. Let us
wait for Shanmukha to assist in writing Iranganti ji for more articles, the same way we introduced
Andree Leclerc from Canada to the nadi master in Hyderabad Shri A. V. Sundaram for some nadi
astrology secrets to come out. If these two fail in bringing knowledge out it would be our failure I guess
& not theirs.
Some of you might argue that there is so much of Jaimini astrology available on the net forums
so why are we cribbing about it. In reality the toughest question in Jaimini Astrology that has been
asked on internet parampara forums which none of the gurus could answer is:-

1. How many major ancient commentaries of Jaimini Sutras are there in total
2. How many Ascendants (lagnas) are there in Jaimini
3. How many Dasas are there in Jaimini
4. How many types of Upapada Lagnas are there
5. How many types of Hora Lagnas are there
6. How many types of calculations are there in Arudhas computation
If you search these net forums you would find that people get upset when Divya Lagna and Tripavana
Lagna calculation are asked. These are actually a part of Jaimini Astrology. Look at this link where the
query of Divya Lagna was asked on May 16th 2006
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sohamsa/message/5208
A famous Guru got upset on being asked this question and now when we were trying to paste the
link here, we saw that the rude answer by him was probably deleted from the forum, note not a single
guru was able to answer it. Deleting messages of scandals from forums is common but if we do not
know something we should admit it whole heartedly and not delete it. In many such internet parampara
forums 3-4 times in last 5 years the toughest question was asked ‘How many major ancient
commentaries of Jaimini Sutras are there’ – not a single person among them could answer it. If we can’t
answer this basic question how can we teach Jaimini Astrology but everyone wants to teach Jaimini
Astrology or some program. Teaching is big business in India and West but predicting out of that
knowledge none can do. Would not a scholar know how many commentaries are there, the names
atleast? There are as per our scant knowledge 35 commentaries which are major, some of them
Saptarishis Astrology Team members has uploaded it in the manuscript section which till date none of
the Jaimini Paramparas of 800 years have been able to do so. Ofcourse everyone talks outside the forum
that if there is a parampara how come they do not have these ancient commentaries but none points it
out in the forum as to how come these paramparas cannot quote a single shloka for their new dasas or
lagnas since in parampara without quoting shlokas you are never taught. Every kid in astrology in India
knows it but none wants to object to the ‘Rape Of Astrology’ since all of us wants to make money by
selling courses in our respective countries with the help of our associations or get posts in organisations
worldwide and flash our certificates so that more clients come. All of us know that the best predictors in
India have never ‘EVER’ flashed certificates or degrees or posts in associations to their name, may the
young ones know this & not become a laughing stock among educated clients. Astrology in India is a
Vidya and Vidya is equated to Mother here, hence we call the Goddess of Learning ‘Maa Saraswati’ but
how fashionable it is for modern day gurus and students to pray every morning to Maa Saraswati, but
allow Vidya to be raped and prostituted by Mercenaries and Talibanists of astrology. Students don’t
even blink an eye when publicly arrogant gurus display their raping of Vidya and their bad manners or
samskara as it is called in India.

L et us not stop here and continue and ask what was asked long back in net parampara forums
‘How many types of Lagnas (Ascendants) are there in Jaimini’, none could answer – well there
are 65 types of Lagnas as per one direct lineage of Jaimini who resides in Andhra and whose
family history of 850 years, their names are written on the walls of his house. Modern paramparas
cannot list down their true lineage of 800 years. How many types of Dasas in Jaimini, none could
47
answer – there are 70 types of dasas in Jaimini. No one can even name these lagnas and dasas, what
about their calculations, what about how to use them, what about 18 years of experience in each dasa
before teaching them. How many types of Arudha calculation are there, this is the basic question in
Jaimini, you ask anyone they would say 2, actually there are 5 major types of systems of calculations of
Arudhas which were followed by the ancients and none have spoken about it so far? Let it be repeated
‘None’. Then there are sub-divisions or views on these 5 types, and then there is the Bhrighu Arudha
11
System which in future issues we will write about. Coming back to Jaimini arudhas, in the ancient
work Kalpalatta, the author Somanathacharya mentions about different calculation for male sign female
sign arudha calculation, on the net Paramparas none have spoken about it and even in the majority of
India none know about it. Read Kalpalatta translation in this issue, it is being brought out for the first
time in last 100s of years, the manuscript you can find in the manuscript link of the website.

Mentor long back went to a man who was rumored to be well versed in Jaimini and mentor
asked him how many types of Upapada lagna calculation are there, he was quiet and finally said only
one is there. Mentor realized at that time this man only poses as a Parampara Guru but does not know
Jaimini basics. We knew the answer via mentor that there are 5 types of Upapada Lagna calculation and
when we were to start this magazine mentor sent us to the village of Madura Krishnamurthy Shastri,
we asked Maduraji the same question that Mentor asked that Parampara Guru. We were committing
the sin of testing the knowledge of an old man and we knew it but for the sake of bringing out true
knowledge of Jaimini we had to do it and in a second we received the right answer with a knowing smile
from Madura ji that he knew why we asked. The question that must come to your mind with different
types of arudhas, Upapada lagnas, 7 or 8 chara karakas, where to see Karakamsa chart in rasi or navamsa
is that which one will you follow after all these formulas have come out in translations, who will decide
this for you, the rishi or the fame hungry guru. Any technique in astrology whether correct or wrong
will always work on 10 charts at the end of the day is a concept not known to astrologers who are eager
to believe what they want to believe as Rahu controls astrology and not Jupiter and Rahu is the
significator of illusion hence some will swear by 7 and some by 8 charakarakas saying it works for them
since 40 years or 800 years without realizing that the Game Master is Rahu, the master illusionist who
even deceived the gods, what are astrologers in front of Gods.

Speaking of Mentor long back in 2006, mentor asked us to teach him how to use Argala, we
replied to him what we had learnt in net forums, he instantly retorted ‘you will never understand basics
of Jaimini.’ It was only when we published the article of Maduraji in last issue we realized that all this
while the whole world has been committing a mistake on something as basic as Argala in Jaimini
astrology. He deserves the credit for teaching all of us in the jyotish world this way Argala is to be used
and aspecting planets in Argala. No doubt the Master, Mr K.N.Rao knew that argala is a confusing part
and never commented on it and thereby avoided misguiding souls in the name of Jaimini astrology.
Some of us know that only two opinions exist when it comes to charakarakas either 7 or 8 and most of
us quote so and so scholars system of charakaraka, what not a single student or scholar has done is quote
the relevant Sanskrit shloka where 7 charakaraka is mentioned or 8 charakaraka is mentioned. When on
an internet parampara forum a friend mentioned that there is an opinion among top most scholars in
Jaimini in Andhra Pradesh that both 7 and also 8 can be used depending on the type of chart, we were
banned by that Paramguru.

2.4 Manuscripts Release & Unhappiness

S o far in last 100 years of astrological English publications few times some of the ancient
manuscripts of Jaimini Sutras commentaries were mentioned. These were kept to a few select
individual. Our team decided to help the lovers of Jaimini astrology by bringing this rare
manuscripts containing commentaries of Jaimini Sutras out for the public since without commentaries
and most important without all of them you cannot even fathom to understand what Sage Jaimini wrote

11
The Bhrighu Arudha Lagna of Michael Jackson comes in the 8H which as per known Jaimini Arudhas does not come in
the 8H and in the 8H as per true nodes there is Rahu and BAL plus Rahu, Rahu shows scandals and 8H also shows scandals,
his whole life was a scandal.
48
in his cryptic condensed coded verses. Thinking that it would be welcome with open arms we realized to
our surprise that our mailers containing download links for the commentaries were being moderated by
moderators of internet parampara forums, some forums did not even allow it as if these moderators
have become Kings in Astrology thinking that their forums is their territory. Fine moderation is
acceptable but how come there was no word for appreciation among even one single member of the
forum for Ravindra Bhagavat who donated these, don’t they want more knowledge. Was everyone
scared of something, of losing their thrones? 1400 people scared to react, if their ParamGuru is not
happy. Will these 1400 be forgiven by the Soul Of Astrology for not encouraging people like Ravindra
Bhagavat & Raghavendra Rao who bring out manuscripts to the world. Are Jyotishas nothing but
spineless creatures, slaves and pets in front of their Gurus? Even some senior members react to
commentaries being brought out in a negative manner whereas in Andhra everyone has died to get their
hands on commentaries, begging and pleasing their Gurus for 40-50 years, they get in return a big Zero
and here it is being given free. See this mail that came to us

Dear Admin,
I am old now and given up on Jaimini Astrology which the legend Dr B V Raman introduced to
us decades back, nobody remembers his contribution now among the young ones. There were tears in
my eyes which have become weak when I saw you distributing for free download these commentaries
on Jaimini Sutras knowing that I have spent 4 decades searching for them. You kids have done the
unthinkable in astrology that none of us nor our heroes did, that is of distributing manuscripts for free
for knowledge to truly come out. I feel as if they did nothing so far. Not a single parampara has done it.
Can you even imagine that in 40 years how many people I must have met who have shown me
manuscripts but not given it displaying their bad manners and their bad blood in them, you said you are
young so you can’t imagine the amount of insults people like me have faced. I am not scolding here but
pointing a fact that comes from experience. I used to feel like taking my hands and killing some of them
when they would look into my eyes with ego and think mentally ‘now start begging me for my
manuscripts.’
My Sanskrit is not so great otherwise I would have helped you nor is my health. I wish I could
touch the feet of Dr Ravindra Bhagavat and Madura Krishnamoorthi Shastri who have distributed these
manuscripts. Mr Shastri I heard so much about this great man in Jaimini, he wrote path breaking
articles in 60s but due to financial circumstances and guess my fate could not go to meet him. Kindly
pass on his address to me and I will be grateful, maybe one day I will meet him. But what I am not
grateful about is what is written in these forums of young ones today. I do copy and paste below, ok.

Re: [sohamsa] Jaimini

Hare Rama Krsna

One can read all the available commentaries, especially if they have a clear mind and can remember what each
commentator has said, all the variability’s, take the time to test all these various techniques, and remember
what works for them and still be clear about who believes what in scholarly circles.. This is a very high path indeed
for one who has the time and intelligence..

Guruji (Sri Sanjay Rath) has read all these commentaries, understood them, tested them, (has rare commentaries
not available to the average public), and has the teaching of a living lineage (Parampara) of Jaimini which he was
born into and is required to continue. Sanjay’s family lineage was invited to Orissa by the King of Puri because
of their jnana.

You use I am old fashioned and don’t know how long I will live but I take B V Raman as my Guru, I
know he had his own shortcomings and did what he had to do to survive but you see in our days we
never made such statements about ones Guru especially in public as the following questions will arise.
How can a student endanger his own Gurus reputation throwing him armor-less in this modern world
where if you hide anything it is considered wrong and a sin? Now think since you are a young publisher
and must learn to respect elders teachings to us.

a) If the students word is true in the above email it means his Guru has all the commentaries of
Jaimini Sutras.
b) His Guru has not replied in the forum saying he does not have those manuscripts.
c) If so how come his Guru has not given out the original manuscripts to the Jyotish Fraternity, it
does not take long to scan and upload on severs (SA: servers it should be). Nowadays technology
is there na.
d) If all commentaries are available with the Guru then as a scholar he did not quote the relevant
shlokas from those commentaries in his book Upadesha Sutras
e) There are some 1500 people in that forum how come no one asked for those commentaries to be
given out, why are the gurus hiding it. For me those commentaries are no use as I have 1.5 years
left as per nadi predictions. Maybe I will read it in next life via your website. Get them
translated will you. Wish Saptarishis Astrology had come 30 years back people like me would
have quenched our true thirst for knowledge.

During my days I was so passionate about my Guru Dr B V Raman whom I met 4 times, and
would defend him against those who were against him. He was always criticized that he hid the Dhruva
Nadi for 40-45 years, I think he was gifted that manuscript in 1952 or 53 and even as late as 1990s he said
he would translate it. My best friend who was anti-Raman always told me that Dr Raman has not
revealed the most important nadi Dhruva Nadi inspite of taking 40 years to translate it and I would
fight against him and even to Dr Raman to release that manuscript. His health was not well I am told
during those days and did not hear from him.

Sorry you have to hear the whinings of an old man but after so many decades in Jaimini and
Parashari Astrology one only feels frustrated as our technical queries are not answered in this life time,
what will we predict from a chart when we are ourselves having doubts on our completeness of our astro
knowledge.

May this not discourage you my child you guys are doing important work, don’t give up.

W e have around 5-6 major commentaries the work on which has already started and
right now the translation of the monumental Kalpalata and Jyotish Phalaratnamala
the backbone of Jaimini Astrology is being presented in this issue. After few years
there would be some debate and a better translation will come out in them, that is the process of how
knowledge comes out but Chandrashekhar Sharma, Virendra Battu will be the Knights who took the
challenge and did it without bothering if they would be criticized or not. This only a true Knight of
Astrology can do what it takes to be done whereas others sit and write articles but these translators are
giving you the very source to research and then write articles, presenting you the tool to glorify your
name. No doubt their names will go in the annals of astrology forever as the men who did it instead of
just talking about it. To bring out 15 commentaries it would take us 50 years, then it would take you 10
years to read and understand them, then another 20 years to master some of the dasas. Better advice is
don’t touch Jaimini Astrology till all the resources are available, don’t touch it till dasas given by
paramparas on nets have stopped their transformation process as all of you have observed that various
50
dasas and lagnas over the years change their calculation as per the whims of the same parampara
without any shame that some of us might have used that lagna to predict and spoil someone’s life.
Astrological organisations are equally responsible worldwide to allow this to go on and so are you for
not objecting and thus weakening your 9H of dharma as you did not follow Dharma of righteous action.
As it took us 15 years to understand why Lord Krishna urged Arjuna to fight and why did he not
tell Arjuna to practice non-attachment which all of us practice by being silent spectators of the dramas
of forums, may it not take you 15 years is how we would end here. May you also not become barking
dogs, that role only few have to perform. Start translating from Hindi to English, or from any local
language to English or Sanskrit to English and make your Mercury powerful that is a bigger remedy
than mantras as Gita propagates action to be the highest dharma. Unless the pleasure of giving
knowledge is experienced, you just won’t realize the Supreme Bliss of it, don’t crave for instant fame or
any at all, don’t crave for creating your brand name or creating your own websites or softwares, all will
come on its own what the Lord decides, just give and give and you shall surely receive the blessings of
the Sages. Trust us there is no 99% in what has been written above. Nobody saves your wasteful years
in astrology, someone did that favor on us in 2006 by telling us at each and every step where not to
waste our time, in which dasa not to spend hours, he said one has 20-30 goods years in jyotish that’s it
and if you waste time learning it wrongly, at the end on your death bed you would be the most
dissatisfied person and would have spent your life like others bitching about other astrologers. In order
to pay a part of our debts to Mentor we have written this kind of Publitorial knowing that more enemies
will be made, more harm will be done to us, critics will be borne and less people might get associated
with us, it does not matter since we are not here to set shop or become astrologers but happy that an
advice like this could save 10-20 years of yours, if it’s worth it take it or delete it, don’t waste your time
or karma deriding it as one would not prefer to be a tool of bad karma creator for you.

To conclude there is a most apt statement from ‘The Last Book Of Astrology’ where the Yogi
says ‘Knowledge Is of No Use unless it has come to use for the welfare of all, where it was Unconditionally Given
until then it’s like a mistress who is for a select few’.

2.5 Is Jaimini Astrology Destined For You.

I f you are learning Astrology or Jaimini Astrology from a Guru or a Parampara he must tell you
before you start astrology if you would be able to learn it or not. Then if you are learning various
streams of astrology each has its own planet, which should be strong in your rasi or a particular
divisional chart. If this has not been told to you then the first step of honesty has not been accorded to
you by your Guru or forum from where you learn. Suppose you are learning Jaimini Astrology, you
must look at your Ketu; this point is not known at all. This Ketu-Jaimini technique is just a hint of a
technique do not forget the word hint and kindly do not take it as the one all end all, a favorite mind set
12
of astrologers. Now the Gothra of Ketu is Jaimini Rishi. Hence Ketu is very important for all those
who learn Jaimini Astrology. The technique is to observe placement of Ketu:-

‘Ketu’s exaltation, debilitation and Moola trikona signs will be most important to observe in
this regard, along with the Kalapurusha Houses that it represents e.g. Ketu is exalted in
Scorpio by some and Sagittarius by some, so observe the 8 and 9 houses in chart too, it is
debilitated in Taurus or Gemini so observe the 2nd and 3rd houses too’.

To make it broadly simple:-

a) Observe Exal, Deb signs of Ketu which is Sc, Sg, Ta, Ge

12
Reference of Gothra from a work by Maharishi Dayanand Jothi, Coimbatore, Kerala whose work has supposed references of many rare
non-popular Nadis without quoting shlokas from nadis. His work would be soon brought out in the shopping section of Saptarishis
Astrology.

51
b) Observe thus the signs houses in natural Kalapurusha zodiac which is 8,9,2,3 houses i.e. ketus
placement in these houses.
c) Observe their own or Moola trikona or trine houses
d) So if you take Pisces as own house observe Pisces and also 12th house, if you take Virgo as trine
house you observe Ketu in Virgo or 6th house or if you take Capricorn as Moolatrikona house as
mentioned in Bhavartha Ratnakara then you observe Ketu in either Capricorn or in 10th house of
a chart and so on.
13
There is lot of confusion among sages/ancient writers on own, exal, deb signs of Rahu Ketu . The
concept of using houses in Kalapurusha for everything in astrology and not just body parts (medical
astrology) is a Bhrighu Astrology Concept that was first clearly extolled by a Calcutta based astrologer
who wrote articles in Astrological Magazine in partnership with Late Surya Prakash, the esteemed son
of B V Raman.

Let’s use this Ketu and observe it in charts of men who dedicated their lives in Jaimini Astrology
but do note that it would also come in the lives of great astrologers who did Parasari or Western
astrology too like that of Richard Houck who they say was at times capable of predicting the date of
death or even of Nostradamus. Anyways the Great Late Vemuri Rama Murthi Sastri of Andhra
Pradesh who is known as the greatest exponent of Jaimini in last 300 years had Ketu Exalted in Scorpio
in 6H (natural house of Virgo in Kalapurusha) of accidents and secrecy, going away from home to learn
(is also 6H), it is said he quietly by-hearted thousands of shlokas from his teacher in Banaras as his
teacher would not part with the manuscripts to be taken out of Banaras and Vemuri is supposed to have
finally burnt down his books in his house, which he claimed caught fire (accidents 6H). It is said there
14
was no one like Vemuri Shastri in Jaimini Astrology. Ketu’s ‘Trine House’ is Virgo, in K.N. Rao’s
chart you would find this Ketu in Virgo in the 12H (Pisces of natural zodiac & Pisces Ketu connection is
15
well known ) of previous lives unfinished business and abroad, his work on Jaimini is regarded as one
of the highest in recent times and he is known for spreading Jaimini abroad, do note that this Ketu is
with an exalted Mercury (writing), his books on Jaimini are the most sold by any book shop as Mercury
makes one practical and he wrote on the ‘Practical Application of Jaimini’, you would find practicing
astrologers swear by K.N. Rao’s version of Chara Dasha, the classical sutra choppers as KNR once called
them would criticize his style but the professionals whose bread is gotten by astrology use K.N. Rao’s
version of Vemuri Shastris Chara Dasha, that was the Mercury & Virgo (Ketu) touch to Jaimini in
KNRs work. Dr Raman had Ketu in the 8H of occult and in the sign of Virgo like K N Rao, Dr Raman

13
Hora Sara Chp 2 Shl8: As Rahu, Ketu have not been dealt with, I give below some information in this regard: Vriddha
Samhita and Jyotishamrita state that Aquarius and Scorpio are owned by Rahu and Ketu in their order. Veemesaram, a
Tamil work calls Aquarius as Rahu's own house, but nothing is allotted to Ketu. Both are exalted in Scorpio and are in fall in
Taurus as per Jatakalankaram (Tamil) and Veemesaram. Jatakachintamani agrees with this, only for Rahu, while it
mentions that Ketu is exalted in Gemini, and is in fall in Sagittarius. Syama Sangraham says that Gemini and Sagittarius are
exaltation and Neecha for Rahu and the reverse is true for Ketu. Sarvartha Chintamani gives Taurus-Scorpio as exaltation
and debilitation for Rahu and Scorpio Taurus as exaltation and debilitation for Ketu. Bhavartha Ratnakara states that Rahu is
exalted in Taurus and Ketu in Scorpio, and Rahu has Gemini and Cancer as his Moola-Trikonas, while Ketu's Moola-
Trikonas are Sagittarius and Capricorn. Also see Uttara Kalamrita, slokas 19-20 of Ch. IV, for more information. There are,
thus, varied views in this regard.
BPHS Chp 47: Shl: 34-39 1/2. In order to clarify the effects of the Dasha of Rahu, I shall first mention the exaltation and
debilitation rashis of Rahu and Ketu. The exaltation rashi of Rahu is Taurus. The exaltation rashi of Ketu is Scorpio. The
Moola-Trikonas of Rahu and Ketu are Gemini and Sagittarius respectively. The own rashis of Rahu and Ketu are Aquarius
and Scorpio in that order. Some sages have expressed the view that Virgo is the own rashi of Rahu and Pisces is the own
rashi of Ketu.
14
Reference Maharishi Dayanand Jothi
15
Bhavartha Ratnakaraka, Chp 15, Shl 9 - For Ketu, Pisces is own house, Libra friendly, Aquarius own house, Scorpio the
place of exaltation, and Sagittarius and Capricorn the moolatrikona places. As we mentioned at the start that Ketu in its
signs does not restrict only to Jaimini, e.g. Richard Houck had Ketu in Sc in 12H, Nostradamus had Ketu in Virgo, CEO
Carter had Ketu in 6H, Cheiro had Ketu in Pisces, Edgar Cayce had Ketu in Leo (more on this below) and so did Robert
Deluce whose work on Divisional chart (D60) is worth reading.

52
was one of the first to propagate and bring out gems in Jaimini via his magazine and books. There is
something not known about Virgo which has been called a Virgin and hence something new must be
told about it, Virgo is a sign when combined with Ketu is ‘Bhagwan Ka Rin’ i.e. ‘Gods debts’ which in the
case of KNR & Dr Raman would be ‘Debt to Higher (Jyotish) Knowledge’ from previous lifetimes which
they have tried to repay in this lifetime. Virgo has another absolutely unknown quality which is ‘To
Inspire Others’ and about this we would talk some other time.
‘One should note that Ketu in Virgo in the right house can give deep knowledge of occult or a super fine
knowledge of spiritual secrets like in the case of James Redfield the celebrated spiritual author having the best
combination of Ketu right on his Asc (most imp) in sign Virgo with 8L Mars.’ Earlier we wrote about Ketu’s
trine house sign being Virgo, so observe 6H placement of Ketu also in charts of people who did major
work in Jaimini astrology like the case of Prof Suryanarayan Rao, grandfather of Dr Raman, he wrote
one of the 1st most famous work on Jaimini in English. Bhavartha Ratnakara says Ketu’s Moola trikona
sign is Capricorn & Sagittarius, so observe these two signs and along with it 10th and 9th houses of any
chart – sign house combo to be used. Sanjay Rath has Ketu in the 10H of Profession & Karma in the
exalted sign of Sagittarius (note both Sc & Sg are considered exalted by many), Sg is also the 9H
of Guru in Naisargik Chart, Sanjay Rath has become a Guru figure to some in Jaimini Astrology. You
would thus observe that this Capricorn (or 10H) Ketu connection of Bhavartha Ratnakaraka does work
if you see some lesser famous people’s chart who have been working on Jaimini but would have Ketu in
Capricorn either in 3H of writing or in 11H of Jyotisha & so on. Ketu is also exalted in Scorpio which is
the natural sign for the occult & hidden knowledge in occult, it is placed in the 11H of Jyotisha in sign
Scorpio in the chart of 81 year old Madura Krishna Moorthy Sastri ji, and his knowledge of Jaimini
astrology is legendary in Andhra Pradesh, the land of Jaimini Astrology, apart from his legendary status
he still remains a humble soul. Iranganti Rangacharya one of the topmost scholars to write in Jaimini
Astrology since last 4 decades in the classical angle has Ketu in Sagittarius in the 2H of education with
A5 (authorship), his work on Jaimini is the most scholarly so far in English language & unmatched.
Another parampara guru of Jaimini of 800 years from Andhra Pradesh, his son has Ketu in Scorpio,
exalted there in 6H of secrecy with A4 (knowledge & passed on in one’s home), this same combination
Late Vemuri Shastry had and thus the knowledge has so far in 800 years not come out. When we were
just about to start this magazine we contacted his father, who though old told us that crap in the name
of Jaimini is happening in internet forums, hence we begged him to write articles so as to clear the
cobwebs in Jaimini Astrology, he laid down some conditions to us for him to write in our magazine
which were not acceptable to us and thus the ego clash happened but loss to Jaimini Astrology happened
forever. It will always remain a black mark on Saptarishis Astrology for having failed in removing this
real parampara out on whose house it is said the list of forefathers in Jaimini Astrology since 800 years
is written on the wall. Those who are from Andhra Pradesh know whom we are talking about.
Sign and house placement both matters, suppose you have Ketu in the 2H in the sign of Aquarius
which is the sign of astrology then again you would read a lot (eyes) on Jaimini and it would be your
deep passion akin to ‘without food (2H) body cannot survive’ like passion, if it is with A6 then first you
would commit mistake (A6 is mistakes) in your learning’s and then you could go to someone else to
learn Jaimini since A6 also means changes. See house placement is very important, take for e.g. the case
of Sanjay Rath he has Ketu in Sagittarius but if it was in 5H in Sagittarius then you could have created
some students (5H-sishyas) like figures who would go on to become Gurus in Jaimini or you could have
thrived a lot to bring out the real Jaimini Astrology out in the open or it could be that you would Love
reading a lot on Jaimini astrology as 5H is the house of love, this way one should use flexibility in ones
interpretation. Ketu in 3H can make you write a lot on Jaimini or talk a lot on Jaimini but remember
where Ketu is there mistake will happen so one must be careful of one’s writing if Ketu is in 3H, there is
no 99% in the above. Ketu in 12H in Leo can make you write a lot on Jaimini, so much must be written
about just Ketu in Leo and astrology connection yet space limitations bar us, but one thing can be said if
this Ketu is rightly uses ‘Super Knowledge’ can come out, only thing is ego should be conquered and
then you would be No.1, if you are unable to conquer ego kids in astrology will come and break (Ketu)
you to pieces, again no 99% in this. Suppose you have Ketu in the debilitated sign of Gemini in the 1H
of everything then you can be instrumental in removing the cobwebs of misinterpretation of Jaimini
astrology by removing rare manuscripts of Jaimini out in open, we know 2 astrologers with same
combination and both have been instrumental in giving out freely rare Jaimini manuscripts to the
world, as it is debilitated no name no ego will come into the picture & these guys might never be known.
53
Ketu in Gemini means debt towards astrology (in astrologer’s charts), the sooner a man with this combo
realizes this better for his karma, if Ketu with Gemini is in the 1H it is ‘Super Debt towards Jaimini
Astrology’ from previous lifetimes as it shows abuse of Jaimini Astrology in the past, when this debt
giving will manifest Jupiter and Mars placement will decide if it would be this lifetime or some other
but the debt will be seen. Speaking of 1H suppose Ketu is there, you got the combo to learn Jaimini
especially some rare points in it and if say it is in sign Leo (natural sign of authorship) your Karma in
this life could be to write a monumental work on Jaimini astrology. Coming back to Ketu is in Pisces or
12H (Pisces in natural zodiac) certain ego can come since a planet feels comfortable and thus proud in
own sign or exalted sign. Ketu denotes fish and Pisces symbol is fish and also a watery sign. Do not get
fooled by seeing Ketu in its debilitated sign or for that matter any planet, debilitation is only a state of
condition, it means more efforts are required to bring the talent out if the other 11 houses support. Thus
you will get a hint that Ketu and Jaimini astrology are very much interlinked.

Finally, in this C S Patel Manuscript Centric Issue we publish translations of some of the rarest
of manuscripts first time seen in the jyotish world, where the writers, translators have burnt the
midnight oil to get them for you and also release 5 new Jaimini Manuscripts donated by Ravindra
Bhagavat, digital size of it is reduced by Raja Sekhar, New Jersey to honor 92 year old Late C S Patel
who started the trend of removing rare shlokas from manuscripts that were forgotten by the jyotish
world. Also all those unseen and unheard of heroes who have preserved these manuscripts must be first
bowed to.

Let this aggressive translation projects be called ‘Mission Saptarishis’ where we all
come together to remove all the knowledge from now to the era of the Saptarishis and pay our Debts to
16
the Sages.

16
Publisher: In Indian culture there are 4 kinds of debts that a human is supposed to pay back before he dies and one of them
is Rishi Rin, which means the debt towards the Sages and unless this is done Moksha is not possible is the belief since ages. It
is the belief of the people in the Inner Circle of Saptarishis Astrology Magazine which is based on many years of close
observation that unless knowledge is given out real knowledge in astrology never comes.

Saptarishis Astrology Update

O n the auspicious occasion of Datta Jayanti (1st Dec 2009), the day of Lord Dattatreya who is
considered the Guru of Gurus and a Guru avatar of Brahma, Vishnu, Maheshwara, this issue of the
magazine which is a 922 odd page volume is being placed at the holy feet of Late Shri C.S.Patel who
started the movement of removing rare shlokas from unknown manuscripts and presenting it in english for
the benefit of the astrological world and hope that the injustice done to him by publishers of magazines and
books at that time is healed to some extent now. By honoring such a gifted soul who did not have any guru
or parampara or organisation or great money behind him one only exemplifies that even you can also
become a C.S.Patel of Jyotish if you work honestly without craving for position, money or fame but have
true concern of helping the jyotish community and not just for name sake.
This issue has been the one where maximum work has gone and one hopes that the readers of the
magazine enjoy it as much as the extreme hard work that has gone into it by the volunteers, writers and
team members. Though there has been more than 2 months delay in getting this out due to various factors of
administration, it is sufficiently big around 930 pages for readers to mull over it minutely for the next 6-9
months. The only difference would be a new entrant would finish reading this issue within a month whereas
a true seeker would spend few years trying to find the meaning of each shloka presented and testing the
various techniques presented. Each one of you including the new entrants are requested to mull on it for
years and to test each technique aggressively. Our vision is not to be seen every month or every 3 months but
to remove the hidden knowledge and manuscripts out as it is felt that today we practice or teach astrology
after just 10-20 years of learning without having read all the available material on astrology, this is Un-
Shastriac and a practice that must be stopped by us only (complete jyotish community). To translate and
hunt manuscripts it takes time and hence would like to come out either once or twice a year and concentrate
on travelling over interiors of India with our limited resources. Hence once again a change in policy must be
mentioned wherein the next probable date of release could be June-July 2010.

BSPs

A
lso one of the significant reasons behind this development is with the resources at hand it’s become
a bit tougher and we would rather concentrate on writing on Bhrighu Saral Paddathis and make
some steps towards finishing the Rishi Debt that the jyotish community is needed to do. As of now
there are 300 Bhrighu Saral Paddathis out of which we have received (for the lack of a better word)
around 60, out of which more than 15 are lost by us due to not noting it down properly & memory issues, but
the rest of it must be aggressively tested and as quickly as possible written in article form for you all to test it
further and understand what the technique is saying and most important what it is not saying. Even if we
present 2 BSPs in an issue, in this lifetime we would not cover the complete 300 hence in this issue many are
given. There is a specific methodology that is not mentioned in all Bhrighu Saral Paddathis articles which is
the key to ‘How to use it’. This is difficult to explain in written form but if you constantly use it then you
would get the Master Key yourself of how to use it more and more effectively, after 18 months of constant
use you would surely reach at a much higher level than even what we have attained. But one must not forget
that to use BSPs the rules of Jyotisha Purusha need to be followed otherwise failure in ones usage will surely
result, this is what has been written and observed.
We request more translators, typists, proof readers, Sanskrit scholars, english language editors to
come forward as there is a dearth of them especially the ones who can selflessly do this for the future
generations. Even a work like typing an article or manuscript is not considered low status volunteer work
and infact we here at Saptarishis Astrology have the highest regard for those who do it. These are far bigger
than the gurus of today. The amount of manuscripts and old works lying with us is so much that one only
worries as to when it would come out for everyone since today there is truly a lack of quality information for
Jyotishis and to bridge that gap would take centuries hence our hurry in creating such big volumes. The next
issue which would be the 2nd Anniversary Issue would be dedicated to volunteers, translators, authors and
copy editors of the magazine. For the Anniversary Issue we invite letters from all to express their criticism
or appreciation for the articles presented so far which would be published in the Anniversary Issue.

When Will I Find
My Next Job?
By
Andrew McDonald, England.

A
s I’m writing this article the media
are busy watching the present
financial crisis unfold. Our world
leaders attend important sounding
‘summits’ where they spend their time
deftly solving the financial woes of the
world. Cheering and booing from the
sidelines the media marvel at the beauty of
Mrs Sarkozy and gossip over Mrs Obama’s
fashion choices, while many of the rest of us

Andrew studied Traditional Astrology


are faced with the mundane and not so
simple task of finding another job in these
extensively with John Frawley and is financially uncertain times. As the growing
legions of unemployed wonder what to do
recognized as a Horary Craftsman and a
next, it might be instructive to see what
Craftsman Astrologer. He specializes in
astrology has to say on the subject, indeed to
Horary, Natal and Electional Astrology, and
see if it can point us in the right direction

consultations contact Andrew at waters.

included large scale murals, small scale
panel paintings, portraits and figurative 1. Lord 10 will signify the job and the Lord
work. He has clients in the UK and USA. Ascendant and Moon will signify the
querent.

2. Connect Lord Ascendant or Moon with


Lord 10 or vice versa and we have new
job and querent coming together. Fail to
do this and we do not.

3. Take the distance between them, figure


out the time units, count the degrees
56
to perfection and we have the timing of the event.

Now a lot of time this is exactly what we will see or rather, things being what they are, what
we won’t see. Usually our attempts to force the chart into contortions to connect querent
and job show simply a large dose of wishful thinking about a job that is, at least in the
context, not essentially available. Yes you can apply for it, yes you are simply perfect for it,
but no, you’re not going to get it.

It will be helpful to look at some examples, to see how the reality and the intricacies of the
1
matter and method play out...

‘When will either I or my wife get some work?’

The querent was in financial difficulty and worried; Lord Ascendant is Jupiter which has
just turned retrograde in the 8th house of anxiety. Lord 2 signifying his money is also in a
precarious situation inside the 12th house of self undoing and about to change sign and lose all

                                                            

For explanations of traditional techniques of dignities, debilities and antiscia I refer the reader back to
my earlier article ‘The Divine Michelangelo’.

57
2
its dignity by triplicity. Mercury, Lord 7, is the querent’s wife and this planet is also
retrograde and in its detriment and fall, so she too is not in a good way. With Mercury also
about to back onto the malefic South Node by antiscion this situation looks quite precarious
indeed. The querent is also signified by the Moon who being close to malefic fixed star
Caput Algol shows that emotionally he is losing his head in the situation.

As I said earlier, ideally we’d want a connection between Lord Ascendant, Lord 10 or Lord 7
and Lord 10 – but here there is neither. One apparent problem is that Lord 10 and Lord Ascendant
are the same planet. But when the querent is self employed, as in this question, this can be
quite common showing that in this sense; person and job are one and the same. We can look
for other significators of the job usually the ruler of the next sign on the 10th in this case
Saturn but before we jump to this let us see what we already have in front of us.

There is an aspect, showing something is about to happen, and this aspect is Moon to sextile
Mercury in 1 degree. In context of the question the Moon, natural ruler of wives, to aspect
Mercury turned3 Lord 10 could show wife getting some work (also note that Saturn will
retrograde onto antiscion of Moon).

To figure out the nature of the time units involved we consider only the applying planet and
the sign and the house he is in. A fixed sign indicates a slow time unit, mutable a medium
and cardinal a fast time unit. We add to this the house, with angular house equalling slow,
succedent /medium and cadent / fast. This gives us the following combinations: Fixed and
Angular gives us slow, Fixed and succedent / medium, fixed and cadent again gives us
medium. Mutable and angular gives us medium, mutable and succedent/ medium, mutable
and cadent also gives us a medium unit. Cardinal and angular is medium unit, cardinal and
succedent/ medium and cardinal and cadent gives us fast. As you can see this weights the
medium unit heavily, but none the less this system works very well and is quite capable of
showing fast if the event is fast and slow if it is slow. Try and you will see. The number of
degrees to perfection of the aspect gives us the quantity of time units i.e. ten degree to
perfection equals ten hours, days, weeks, months or years or whatever unit we’ve judged to
use. For a further detailed exposition of this method I refer you to John Frawley’s masterful
and remarkably clear work ‘The Horary Textbook’.

As with all things in Astrology it is vital that we apply this timing method within the
context of the situation. We still need to weigh the testimonies carefully and most of all, we

Lord 2 Venus is in Capricorn and so is dignified in it’s triplicity by day. This is a day chart even
though the Sun is not quite above the horizon as it would have already been light outside. Always give
the day a few degrees leeway at sunrise and sunset as the Sun’s light is visible just before it rises and just
after it sets.

Mercury is ruler of the ‘turned 10th’ his wife’s 10th house, and so is significator of her job. We find the
turned 10th house by counting from her 1st house (the 7th in the chart) and ‘turning the chart’ until we
come to her 10th (the 4th in the chart).

58
must remember that this is not a mechanistic tool and it cannot be applied in the manner of
one.

So in this context the applying planet is in a fixed sign and so suggests a slow time unit but
it is also in a succedent house suggesting a medium unit of time. Slow and medium together
gives us medium. As there was no hint of any upcoming work at all to the knowledge of the
querent and his wife we could safely say that the most obvious unit would be weeks, using
days/fast, weeks/medium, months/slow. But with the knowledge that due to the nature of
her business she would normally hear on the grapevine about any upcoming work coupled
with the fixity of the Moon slowing things down we may well decide to push up the time
unit to a month.

And so the judgement was that the querent’s wife would get some work most likely in 1
month’s time.

And so it proved – querent’s wife started work on the 4th April – a month later from the
chart.

Take Job?

D
uring times of financial difficulty we are often tempted to apply for or take on a
job that is most certainly not the best thing for us. This next chart shows this
exact situation. In this instance, thankfully for the querent, he looked before he
leapt.

59
Querent was worried and very unsure about taking a job that had been offered to him. He
was, ‘worried that it might be a nightmare’. Lord Ascendant the Sun has just lost all his
dignity and is now in the detriment of Lord 10 showing he really doesn’t want this job.

Mars is Lord 10, the job. He has dignity by triplicity and term but more importantly is
seriously debilitated in his fall close to the querent’s 12th house of self undoing, as if it were
leaning on his self undoing, this screams out ‘don’t take it’ and in the context shows the
possibility that the job will undermine the querent and cause him problems.

We can go a bit deeper into the chart...

Lord Ascendant has recently lost his dignity and is now ruled by Venus Lord 11 or rather 2
from 10 the jobs money or wages, this is what he is now interested in. The wages are in their
exaltation and so very good indeed and the benific North Node is near the 10th house cusp
showing increase and beneficence which is of course, also promising. The Moon is Void of
Course and is in its detriment exalting the job and in mutual reception with the job. This
shows that the querent is emotionally exalting the job, putting it on a pedestal. That the
Moon is also in its detriment shows that this is a debilitated Moon, it is not as it should be,
and its love for the job is reciprocated by the job itself, meaning they both want to be
together. This is cause for concern: He may be blindly drawn into this - With the Moon
Void of Course the querent would be unlikely to ruffle the status quo and so if he has
committed to the job and now is just having second thoughts, then things would very
probably continue as they are, and he would be drawn into it. Hopefully he has not
committed in any way. Saturn is also in its detriment inside the 1st house the weight of
Saturn weighing down on the querent which doesn’t bode well generally. This can be quite
common in situations like these.

Querent thought about the situation some more. He had not yet committed himself to the
job, and explained that though he somehow felt he wanted the job, shown by the Moon
exalting it, that he also didn’t want the job, shown by Lord Ascendant the Sun, in the
detriment of it. This is a classic heart (Moon), head (Lord Ascendant) split. Of the type
usually seen in personal relationships, but as you can see, not limited to them.

The querent decided not to take the job. Looking back at this chart we can see that he made
a good decision as the job, though well paid, would probably have been the nightmare that he
imagined it would.

Is My Job Safe?

I
n difficult economic downturns we may still have a job, but if we work for a company
that is restructuring, downsizing, or randomly contorting in order to stay afloat we may
also be urgently occupied with the question of ‘will my position in this company last?’

60
A querent contacted me with this worry as her employer was changing over to what she had
been told was ‘a new system’, and she had serious doubts whether or not this new system
had a place for her.

The job is signified by Lord 10, Mercury, who is accidentally very strong inside the 10th
house and being in his own sign and exaltation, is very strong essentially. It certainly looks
on the surface as if all is well. But we can also see that Mercury is heading towards the
malefic South Node; there is trouble ahead.

Mars is Lord Ascendant and has a little essential dignity by term but he is about to lose even
this small amount and enter his detriment hence the querent telling me that she felt like she
was looking over the edge. Lord Ascendant is also leaving the sign of the job. This is all
strongly indicative of change. So we could see, in this context, the querent getting fed up
with her work and leaving. The Moon is in the detriment and fall of Lord 10 showing that
our querent’s emotions strongly dislike this job situation and her bosses who are also
signified by lord 10. The Moon is applying to an opposition with the Sun, natural symbol of
high authority, pointing to a run in or an argument with the people in charge, of which the
querent said there was great potential! Thankfully there is also a trine with the great benific
Jupiter, also symbol of authority but not authority that is as high as the Sun, maybe a benific
manager might intervene and warn her off tackling the powers that be head on. This Jupiter
aspect happens before the opposition with the Sun, and so traditionally it will prohibit this
aspect, it is as if the opposition will not happen, as if it is prevented somehow. We could see
61
the friendly executive having a word in the querent’s ear warning her away from a
confrontation with the people in charge. The querent later mentioned to me that her line-
manager did indeed do this.

I judged that her job would still exist. Lord 10 had too much dignity and was not about to
lose it. Mercury’s position in its own sign and exaltation so close to the Midheaven was very
strong. Yes it would hit the South Node and things would go downhill but it would still
maintain its dignity and not essentially change. The querent would probably lose heart and
interest in the job herself shown by the dire impending situation of the Lord Ascendant and
so she could be in danger of quitting rather than being laid off. But there is also a fixed sign
on her ascendant and even though her Lord Ascendant was entering a cardinal or ‘movable
sign’ the fixedness of the horizon I felt would help hold things together even though her
heart was not in it as shown by the Moon in the detriment and fall of the job and also
opposing the Sun.

And yes things did change – A supposed ‘new job’ was created as a result of her company
‘rebranding’ but as the querent told me her job remains technically exactly the same – shown
in the chart by Lord 10 essentially maintaining its dignity and so it does not in essence
change even despite the accidental debility of heading to the South Node. It nonetheless
became more difficult for the querent to execute the tasks that she has to do: essentially it
would remain good but it would be debilitated by the conjunction with the South Node.
Lord Ascendant moves into its detriment and so, losing heart, the querent begins to look at
her work as just ‘a job’ also shown by her significator moving out of the dignities of Lord 10
– literally, she fell out of love with her job and though she did not quit but remained
working in it, showing the fixedness of the horizon and the job remaining after all
essentially what it always was.

Let us move on from such difficulties and trials and end on a hopeful note. Here is a nice
well behaved chart that shows the timing of the ‘next job’ beautifully...

Will This Job Come Through? Will It Happen? When?

Q uerent had repeatedly and unsuccessfully tried to contact by telephone the person
offering him the job. This person had previously offered the querent work that had
failed to materialize and the querent wondered if this would be the same story.

Moon trine Sun is generally a positive testimony but this is now separating and the Moon is
heading into the Via Combusta, showing a period of emotional turmoil, in the 10th house of
work thus Indicating querent’s worry over the job and his feeling that it might not happen.
The Moon is also opposing the antiscion of Saturn and so maybe showing client’s
frustration and inability to get hold of his potential employer by telephone as Saturn is Lord
3 – messages/telephone calls.

62
But the job is signified by Venus Lord 10 who is thankfully in an applying sextile aspect
with the querent, signified by Lord Ascendant Jupiter. This will perfect in less than a degree
– in fact in about 10 minutes of arc. Venus is in a movable sign and so it is a fast time unit,
but she is in a succedent house which gives us a medium unit. Together they point to a
medium unit. Again a realistic option within the context of the situation was days/fast,
weeks/medium and months/slow. This would give us a week as our basic time unit. The
aspect is almost perfected and so if our time unit for the degrees to perfection is a week and
the aspect perfects in around 10 minutes of arc and so, very, very soon, 10 minutes will
probably show a day.

The judgement was that yes the job will come through within a day from now.

And so it proved much to the querent’s amazement: the man with the job called him within
an hour of the chart being set to see if he could indeed start work the very next day.

These charts, and many others, continually show us that things happen in their own time,
despite what we may think or want. Contrary to opinion, the knowledge of this does not
condemn us to wandering around like doomed fatalists waiting to be showered with largesse
or lightning. No, far from it, it demands instead that we do what we can, what is within our
powers to do, in fact what it is our ‘job’ to do. We must try to make sure that we are ready
when the opportunity knocks, hone our skills and develop our vision so we can spot an
opportunity when we see it. We can nurture our hope and expand our horizons to take in

63
possibilities that we may not of considered and remember that our unfortunate
circumstances may provide the opportunity for better things to manifest. We may simply
find that we are looking for opportunities in the wrong place, a bit like looking for a jar of
sweets in an empty cupboard – no matter how hard we look we won’t find what we are
looking for. Or equally, we may be looking at the wrong time – the cupboard has not been
restocked mum hasn’t returned home from the shops yet. These things can be clearly seen in
the horary chart. And so the idea behind all of this is to bring us and our will into harmony
with the larger will that is out there, which is shepherding and guiding us towards our next
opportunity, which again, contrary to received opinion, is also out there waiting within the
threads of time, waiting till we finally meet. Let’s hope we are ready.

como temas migratorios, empresas de turismo, líneas aéreas, a los atletas o los deportes, el
juego, los viajes, los jueces, los legisladores, la salud rige las caderas, muslos, el hígado y las
enfermedades como la hepatitis, la diabetes.

Plutón en la mitología es denominado el Dios de la Muerte rige todo lo que esta oculto, lo
que es secreto, su dominio es el submundo, la sombra del colectivo, rige a los arqueólogos
que podrían encontrar algo, rige a la policía secreta y al crimen organizado, los impulsos
destructivos, la muerte el renacimiento, el fin de algo y el inicio, la transformación, los
procesos virales, y las bacterias, los órganos urogenitales, las masas la destrucción, el poder
atómico, el crimen, el rapto, las dictaduras, las obsesiones. La palabra “Plutos” en Griego
simboliza riqueza por lo que se asocia también a la abundancia.

Las transformaciones suelen ser lentas profundas y en ocasiones dolorosas y destructivas


antes de volver a crear algo nuevo.

La conjunción de estos dos planetas cuyo ciclo es de doce años, se relaciona a veces con el
crecimiento del terrorismo internacional, o el desarrollo del poder político internacional. La
combinación nos habla de poder de todas las clases, puede ser físico, material mental o
espiritual. Las conjunciones en el siglo pasado ocurrieron en los años 1906, 1928, 1931, 1943,
1955-56, 1968, 1981, la ultima ocurrió el 2 de Diciembre de 1994, a 28º de Escorpio.

Algunos astrólogos hablan de esta gran conjunción como típica de pandemias, provocadas
por virus o por bacterias.

Obviamente tendrá que ver con el comercio internacional, las bolsas de valores, tal vez
nuevas filosofías, religiones, leyes, nuevos ideales, nuevos líderes, reformas.

Después viene la entrada de Plutón a Capricornio el 27 de Enero del 2008, signo cardinal de
tierra que rige la ambición las estructuras.

Plutón descubierto en Enero de 1930. Cuando esto sucede estamos en el mundo en una gran
depresión y las pérdidas se asocian al dinero, los craks de la bolsa de valores. La época de los
Gangsters de la mafia que jugaba en aquel entonces un papel importante en los Estados
Unidos y que formaban parte del mundo subterráneo, y tenía sus propias leyes. La forma de
vivir de estos individuos es un excelente símbolo de Plutón.

Otra influencia de Plutón es la energía atómica, porque el neutrón fue descubierto solo dos
años después de que este planeta es descubierto. Y esta energía puede matar millones de seres
humanos.

El petróleo y el carbón se extrae de las profundidades de la tierra y es también símbolo de


esta energía. Así como las explosiones volcánicas.

Su entrada al signo de capricornio signo de tierra cardinal cuya palabra clave es la ambición.
Es el décimo signo del zodiaco, rige las tradiciones, los gobiernos y sus gobernantes, la
perfección, el trabajo duro, la seriedad, la seguridad, la estabilidad, las autoridades, la
organización, la solidificación, las estructuras la sabiduría y los límites.

66
Saturno es su planeta regente.

El simbolismo de esta entrada sería algo así como evolución, y cambios necesarios hacia otros
sistemas, reestructuración.
Los primeros 10 grados de este signo los rige saturno. Y Plutón estuvo aquí la ultima vez
entre 1762 y 1778.

La independencia de Estados Unidos, el invento de la maquina de vapor, el reinado de Luis


XVI y Maria Antonieta, la revolución industrial, la rigidez de muchos gobiernos de la época
llevó a rebelión y levantamientos en años posteriores.

La lección a aprender durante este periodo, si Capricornio rige la constancia la perseverancia,


la eficiencia, y la organización, tal vez sería que el mundo debería crear una nueva forma de
organizarse y de trabajar creando nuevas leyes y estructuras. Como Plutón trae consigo
transformaciones pero antes elimina lo que no sirve, es posible que traiga consigo grandes
cambios políticos y sociales, una nueva estructura en el poder.

Otro punto a tomar en cuenta sería ver lo que han traído otros planetas transpersonales
últimamente, y lo más cercano es la triple conjunción de Saturno Urano y Neptuno en
Capricornio hacia finales de los 80ª Esto sucedió en el año 1989, crearon la caída del régimen
comunista, la caída del muro de Berlín, y una reorganización mundial, por tanto la entrada
de Plutón a Capricornio puede traer también un reacomodo y reorganización en los poderes,
tal vez se den cuenta que la globalización no es lo adecuado para todos y puede haber un
cambio en las estructuras materiales.

Otra manifestación puede ser la lucha de los energéticos del mundo como son el petróleo, el
gas y todos los energéticos, así como la riqueza que yace en el subsuelo. De hecho durante la
oposición de Saturno a Plutón en el 2001, empezaron a generarse conflictos por la lucha de
estos energéticos, cuyo resultado fue la ocupación de Afganistán e Irak, países que poseen
estas fuentes energéticas, la lucha contra el terrorismo es también símbolo de este tiempo. La
mafia y la lucha por territorios para distribuir la droga puede ser otra manifestación de este
tiempo que no debemos dejar de lado.

En lo particular la carta que más llama mi atención es la carta de México, relacionada con la
entrada del ejercito trigarante a la Ciudad de México.

Pues esta carta tiene como ascendente a Capricornio estando en el ascendente la conjunción
de Urano a 29.18 de Sagitario y Neptuno a 0.22 de Capricornio, ambos cuadrando a Plutón a
28.39 de Piscis y al sol a 4 de Libra, esto en astrología se llama una T de la cual Urano
Neptuno y el ascendente de México forman el punto clave de los dos brazos de la cuadratura
cerrados por la oposición de Plutón y el sol

Esto podría informarnos de grandes cambios a nivel colectivo en el país.

Aquí hay que ir otra vez al pasado para ver lo que causaron los tránsitos anteriores a estos
puntos.

67
Cuando Urano y Neptuno estuvieron en oposición el 1910 fue la Revolución, También aquí
Plutón en Transito estaba cuadrando a Plutón de la carta de la declaración de la
independencia.

Cuando Urano y Plutón hacen cuadraturas desde Virgo en el 68, tenemos grandes
manifestaciones que terminan en la matanza de Tlaltelolco.

Cuando Neptuno entra al signo de Capricornio y activa el ascendente de México tenemos el


terremoto del 1985.

Cuando se vuelve a generar la gran conjunción de Urano y Neptuno en febrero del 93, se
activa en diciembre del 93, tenemos primero el asesinato de Colosio, el de Ruiz Masieu, y el
levantamiento en Chiapas, además de que el 1º de Enero del 94 entra en vigor NAFTA.

Por toda esta investigación es de pensar que en nuestro país habrá grandes transformaciones
y cambios que ya empiezan a acercarse a
la efervescencia política y la polarización actual será algo que tendremos que tomar en cuenta
si no deseamos que estas transformaciones necesarias nos lleven a hechos violentos.

El siguiente ciclo a analizar es el ciclo Saturno Plutón es de aproximadamente 33 años. Así la


ultima gran conjunción se dio el 8 de Noviembre de 1982 en el signo de Libra a 27º terminará
en cuanto estos dos mismos planetas vuelvan a estar en conjunción el 13 de Enero del 2020 a
22.47º de capricornio. La semilla de esta gran conjunción tiene cualidades de Libra que nos
llevan a pensar sobre la búsqueda del equilibrio, la armonía, la justicia en el mundo, pero
paradójicamente lo que hemos visto hasta ahora es justamente lo contrario la pérdida del
equilibrio cuando menos en lo ecológico y en lo político.

Este ciclo siempre se asocia a profundas transformaciones, políticas, económicas y al


desarrollo de las estructuras culturales.

Hagamos un recuento de las últimas conjunciones entre estos dos planetas


Cuando en el año 1947 la gran conjunción anterior se dio en el signo de Leo el 11 de Agosto,
fue cuando India, Pakistán, Burma tuvieron su independencia de Inglaterra, también estos
ciclos se asocian a Israel que tuvo su independencia solo un año después todavía cuando la
gran conjunción estaba en orbe. Europa estaba en plena reconstrucción después de la 2a
Guerra Mundial. Otro país que empieza a emerger con esta gran conjunción del 47 fue
China aunque la Republica es proclamada hasta Octubre de 1949. En 1948 después de la
guerra Estados Unidos implementa el programa para la recuperación de Europa. En Abril de
1948 se constituye la OECE organización Europea de Cooperación Económica, se firma
también el tratado de Dunkerque entre Inglaterra y Francia, el resultado de estos acuerdos en
Abril de 1949 fue el nacimiento de la OTAN. También pertenece a este ciclo la constitución
de la ONU firmada el 24 de Octubre de 1945, entrando en Vigor el 3 de Mayo de 1946.

La gran conjunción anterior a esta tuvo lugar en Octubre de 1914 a 2.14º de Cáncer, un signo
cardinal, el signo opuesto en que ahora estará. Las dos primeras Guerras mundiales están
incluidas en estos dos últimos ciclos. Esto puede verse más a fondo en el artículo publicado
en Abril del 2001, sobre los ciclos Saturno Plutón y sus manifestaciones.

68
Los eventos que ahora se asocian a esta gran conjunción, la última de 1982, en ese entonces
empieza la influencia de “EL NIÑO” fenómeno que tiene que ver con los cambios climáticos
en el mundo y que cada vez observamos que traen consigo debido a los cambios en la
temperatura, muchos más ciclones, e inundaciones, pero a la vez sequías en todo el mundo,
el equilibrio simbolizado por el signo de “Libra” parece haberse roto, hemos infligido las
leyes de la naturaleza y tendremos que sufrir las consecuencias. Los dos planetas tanto
Saturno como Plutón tienen que ver con el karma que hemos creado.

Otro evento saliente de esa época es una fuerte crisis financiera en México. Y en este mismo
país tenemos la erupción del volcán “El Chichón. El presidente López Portillo nacionaliza la
banca.

Otros eventos de este ciclo son.

La guerra de las Malvinas entre Argentina e Inglaterra.

Un poco antes en el 81 empieza el movimiento de Solidaridad en Polonia.

El endeudamiento regional Latinoamericano provoca una crisis financiera internacional.

En el medio Oriente guerra entre Israel y Líbano, el propósito de Begin era expulsar a los
Palestinos de Beirut, el responsable de la invasión es Ariel Sharon. Israel Quiere asumir la
influencia sobre Siria en la región.. Ya en el año 1981 Hay un ataque de Israel contra la
central nuclear de Tammuz en Irak, el motivo Israel quiere destruir el reactor nuclear.
Francia había enviado Uranio a Irak.

El presidente de Egipto Sadat es asesinado el 6 de octubre de 1981, el era un mediador de la


paz entre Israel y Egipto en aquella época.

En diciembre de 1981 Israel se anexa los altos del Golán. Y entre 1980 y 1982 la Península de
Sinai es devuelta a Egipto.

En 1982 muere Breshnev el presidente de la U.R.S.S. y entra en su lugar Andropov.

A partir de 1980 y hasta 1988 también hay una guerra llamada la primera guerra del Golfo en
la cual Irak invade a Irán, por conflictos territoriales, España les suministra armas a ambos.

Eventos deportivos la copa mundial 1982 en España de foot-tball gana Italia.

Crece el mercado mundial de computadoras.

Algunos astrólogos que son entendidos en astrología mundial hablan del ciclo como,
momentos de cambios estructurales en la humanidad en los que es necesario regresar a lo
básico, se generan crisis de autoridad, también casi siempre cuando estos dos planetas están
en aspectos difíciles hay crisis financieras y en algunos casos guerras.

La siguiente primera cuadratura entre estos dos planetas se genera el 20 marzo de 1993
estando Saturno en Acuario entre los grados 25.23º de Acuario y Plutón en Escorpio, y
69
termina los primeros días de Enero de 1994, a 27.02º de Acuario y Plutón esta en estos
mismos grados cuadrando desde el signo de Escorpio, pero este aspecto de tensión estuvo
además acompañado de la gran conjunción de Neptuno y Urano que se dio entre los grados
19.30º de Capricornio empezando en Febrero de 1993, y terminando a finales de ese año y
principios del 1994. Así aquí tenemos dos ciclos de planetas transpersonales entrelazados
entre si.

Ahora en el 2010 tendremos los ciclos Júpiter Saturno, Júpiter Urano, Júpiter Plutón, Saturno
Urano, Saturno Plutón y Urano Plutón. Son 6 ciclos entrelazados entre si lo que hace más
difícil su interpretación.

Pero regresemos a la primera cuadratura de Saturno Plutón y sus eventos. En México hay
eventos salientes en este ciclo año 1993-94, la muerte de Luis Donaldo Colosio, candidato a la
presidencia muere en Marzo del 93, la muerte de Ruiz Massieu también político conocido del
PRI. El levantamiento del Ejercito Zapatista el 1º de Enero de 1994, la crisis económica que
deja el gobierno de Salinas de Gortari. El inicio del tratado de Libre comercio entre Estados
Unidos, México y Canadá.

Otros eventos importantes en este ciclo, en septiembre de 1993 inundaciones graves en


Dakota norte y sur, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Winsconsin e Illinois. 50
muertos y 15 billones de pérdidas, los ríos se desbordan 10,000 casas destruidas, 75 pueblos
dañados.

Violentos eventos el 3 y 4 de Octubre en Moscú, los detractores de Boris Yeltzin se oponen,


esto lleva a la disolución del parlamento sus opositores son encarcelados, y posteriormente
puestos en libertad en Febrero del 94. En la revuelta hay 146 muertos y más de 1000 heridos,
se convoca a nuevas elecciones lo que le cuesta a Rusia más de $ 300 millones de Dólares.

1993 primer atentado terrorista a las Torres Gemelas.

1994 Atentado terrorista en Argentina a la sede del edificio de la mutual Judía AMIMA 100
muertos.

En 1994 entra en función Internet que revoluciona el mundo de la información.

Cuando se genera la oposición dentro de este mismo ciclo y si alguien quiere ver las últimas
repercusiones sobre este ciclo recomiendo ir a mi página www.astrozod.com. Artículo
Saturno Plutón, cuando se generó la oposición en el año 2001, la oposición se da el 6 de
Agosto del 2001, a los 12.37º de los signos Géminis Sagitario, solo un mes antes de los
atentados, activando la carta de los Estados unidos con el ascendente a 12º de Sagitario. Las
guerras que inicia Estados Unidos contra Afganistán e Irak son repercusiones del ciclo, así
como la crisis económica a nivel mundial que siempre trae consigo este ciclo. Cuando este
ciclo se activa también se ha observado que los problemas en Israel y el oriente medio
también surgen.

Ya vimos los simbolismos de plutón y Saturno y debemos recordar que esta gran conjunción
la ultima se generó en Libra en el 81, sabemos que saturno rige las estructuras, la disciplina, el
sentido de la responsabilidad, la organización, la ambición, las leyes científicas y las leyes
70
que rigen al universo, el tiempo, la profundidad, la paciencia, la constancia, la perseverancia,
la solidificación, la sabiduría. Debemos recordar que Saturno es denominado el Señor del
Karma y que trae siempre consigo las lecciones y consecuencias de lo que hemos sembrado
en la vida. Así cuando el ciclo se manifiesta tendremos como colectivo las consecuencias de
lo que se ha sembrado en el pasado, a partir del inicio del ciclo en 1982. Al entrar a Libra, el
signo que rige el equilibrio, las leyes, la justicia, la imparcialidad, las relaciones con los
demás, la diplomacia, el tacto, la cooperación. Si no cumplimos con estas normas, es posible
que los problemas empiecen a suscitarse, debido a que ambos planetas están haciendo un
aspecto de tensión que marca tiempos difíciles.

La configuración al estar en signos cardinales puede traer consigo Transformaciones


radicales en las estructuras mundiales, en las leyes, en los tratados internacionales y en la
política, conlleva el riesgo de que se adopten actitudes que implican resistencia hacia los
cambios necesarios para la humanidad, si persiste una actitud obstinada (plutón) y temerosa
(Saturno), no solo se crean obstáculos para la evolución, esto perjudicará el equilibrio y
dañará las relaciones entre países, y gobernantes, que como resultado dañan a la tierra en
general. Los que desean controlar el mundo provocarán un gran desgaste de energía,
provocando miedo en la sociedad y en las relaciones internacionales.

Ahora bien quienes son los que se ven involucrados en estos eventos principalmente. Serán
los países cuyas cartas tengan como ascendente o como signo solar los primeros grados de los
signos cardinales, Libra, Capricornio, Aries, y Cáncer. Así como todos los países cuyas cartas
tengan relación con estos ciclos, como Israel, India, Pakistán, Burma, China, Japón,
instituciones como la ONU, la OTAN cuya constitución fue creada después de la segunda
guerra mundial.

México, con una de sus más importantes cartas la terminación de la guerra de independencia
y la entada del ejercito trigarante a la ciudad de México, con su ascendente a 00 de
Capricornio, como antes vimos puede ser uno de los protagonistas, la Republica Federal
Alemana cuya carta es del 22 de Mayo de 1949, y cuyo ascendente esta a 5 de Capricornio.
Nueva Zelanda, cuya carta es del 26 de Septiembre del 1906, a las 23.21GMT, cuyo
ascendente también es Capricornio y el sol esta a 1º de Libra, Y que pertenece también a este
Ciclo por formarse en su carta la cuadratura entre Plutón y Saturno. Turquía que proclama
su República el 29 de Octubre de 1923 en Ankara cuyo ascendente es 7º de Cáncer y su luna a
29.56 de Géminis. Hay dos cartas de Canadá que indican también que este país puede tener
eventos pues la primera es el dominio de Canadá del 1º de Julio de 1867 en Ottawa, a las 00.00
Hrs LT. En esta carta vemos a Saturno y a Plutón en oposición entre los signos de Tauro y
Escorpio, y en la carta de la constitución de Canadá para la firma de la constitución por la
reina el 17 de Abril de 1982, en Ottawa también tenemos el ciclo Saturno Plutón en Libra, y el
ciclo Júpiter Plutón que también tiene relación a estas configuraciones del 2010. No tengo
desafortunadamente las cartas de todos los países que se verán involucrados. En la carta de
independencia de Estados Unidos Venus esta a 3º de cáncer, por lo que la configuración que
se formará, hará aspectos tensos a este planeta símbolo de las relaciones y la economía,
creando posiblemente una crisis económica, en ese país.

A nivel personal también afecta a las personas cuyos signos ascendente o solar estén en los
primeros grados de los signos cardinales Aries, Cáncer Capricornio y Libra, que son los

71
nacidos entre el 21 y el 23 de Marzo, entre el 21 y el 24 de Junio, entre el 22 y el 25 de
Septiembre, y entre el 22 y 25 de Diciembre.

Si por ejemplo cuando inicia la gran conjunción en el año 1982 se inicia el fenómeno del
NIÑO, es posible que este fenómeno cobre mayor importancia, y esto es algo que conforme
han pasado los años hemos visto que va en aumento. Todo dependerá de las coordenadas a
nivel astrocartográfico ahí podremos ver cuales son las zonas más afectadas por el ciclo. Es
posible que México por su posición geográfica y por los tránsitos hacia su carta sea uno de los
países afectados.

Un mes después el 21 de Diciembre a las 9.34 am tiempo de Greenwich del mismo 2009 ser
genera la gran conjunción entre Júpiter y Neptuno a 24.17.56, ambos en el Signo de Acuario.

Ambos son planetas asociados a ideologías, filosofías, religiones, sistemas de creencias, a


veces luchas o pleitos relacionados por diferencias religiosas o filosóficas. Generalmente
también se relacionan a las economías socialistas del bloque del este, y otros dicen que se
refiere al destino de Francia. La quinta República nació con la conjunción. Cuando en 1958
Francia se encuentra en crisis por la guerra civil en Algéria, el General de Gaulle crea una
nueva constitución el 28 de Septiembre así la 5ª. República es inaugurada el 5 de Octubre bajo
la conjunción Júpiter Neptuno. La siguiente es el 16 de Septiembre del 71, la siguiente es el 20
de Enero de 1984 la siguiente es 9 de Enero de 1997, esta última será el 21 de Diciembre del
2009, esta conjunción tiene un ciclo de 13 años y generalmente se genera en un signo sub-
secuente, es decir la última tuvo lugar en el signo de Capricornio y ahora estará en el signo de
Acuario. También esta gran conjunción se asocia económicamente a los booms, pero también
a los periodos de gran inflación. Hay algunos astrólogos que relacionan cada gran conjunción
de Júpiter con un planeta mayor a epidemias o pandemias.

Como se genera en el signo de Acuario, signo de aire fijo un signo que se refiere a lo social, a
lo humanista, lo intelectual, y siendo esta una conjunción que expresa una fértil imaginación,
que puede expresarse en áreas creativas, idealistas, religiosas. Es posible que surjan nuevas
ideas, que no hagan distinciones raciales o religiosas. Esto se asocia también a las fases en las
que se encuentra Neptuno en Acuario, La combinación produce orientación social, filosófica
y política.

Si vemos el mapa natal de este día a esa hora tendremos que la gran conjunción Neptuno
Júpiter activada por la luna en conjunción a estos y por la oposición de Marte el planeta
bélico a estos tres planetas, esto podría hablar de agresión relacionada con temas religiosos.
Ambos tanto la Luna como Marte se observan como detonantes de eventos. Al mismo
tiempo tenemos la cuadratura de Saturno y Plutón que será activada unos días después por el
sol que el 21 de Diciembre, esta ya a 29.39º de Sagitario, aplicativo ya a Plutón.

La siguiente gran conjunción de Júpiter y Urano tendrá lugar, el 8 de Junio del 2010 A las
11.10am en tiempo de greenwich. Esta configuración tiene un ciclo de 14 años, el ciclo se
asocia al despertar de la conciencia y su desarrollo. Combina las aspiraciones y el esfuerzo así
como las posibilidades de evolución del hombre. Cuestiona y abre oportunidades, y
desarrolla el espíritu del colectivo con optimismo(Júpiter) y nuevos conocimientos o avances
(Urano). Parece asociarse al mercado libre en la economía a nivel internacional. Es un ciclo
generalmente orientado hacia el capitalismo. El ciclo otorga ambición poder, toma de riesgos.
72
En una sociedad en crisis como parece ser el momento porque estos ciclos se van a entretejer
con otros en aspectos de tensión, y por estar estos dos planetas en un signo de Fuego “Aries”
podría causar muchos problemas. Es una configuración que se asocia también a la
aeronáutica y a los viajes espaciales, por lo que es posible nuevos lanzamientos e
investigaciones en este sector. Cuando esta conjunción se dio en el 68 estuvo ligada a las
olimpiadas, y a la gran conjunción Urano Plutón.. La siguiente se dio a mediados de Febrero
en el signo de Sagitario. La ultima tuvo lugar el 16 de Febrero de 1997, a 5º. De Acuario.

Si la configuración estuviese sola o haciendo aspectos positivos hacia otros planetas podría
prometer mucho, un nuevo ciclo de desarrollo y expansión, posibles nuevos descubrimientos,
relacionados con la tecnología, la aeronáutica. El problema será que al entrar esta gran
conjunción a Aries, un signo cardinal, hará cuadratura hacia Plutón y oposición a Saturno,
despertando así los ciclos Saturno Júpiter, Saturno Urano y Urano Plutón, que ahora
tendremos también que tomar en cuenta, lo que hace sumamente complicado interpretar los
acontecimientos, pero las configuraciones sugieren una gran crisis.

Esto hará que tengamos que analizar los otros ciclos.

El primero es el ciclo de Saturno Júpiter que se inició en el año 2000, el 28 de mayo a 22.38º de
Tauro, signo de tierra, fijo, este es un signo que rige la economía, los valores. Este ciclo se da
aproximadamente cada 20 años. El próximo ciclo empieza el 21 de Diciembre del 2020 en el
grado 00.24º de Acuario.

Este ciclo tocó en su inicio la carta de la declaración de Independencia de Israel cuyo Sol se
encuentra el 14 de Mayo de 1948 a 23.41º de Tauro cuadrando a Marte a 28.19 de Leo. Los
eventos de ese año para Israel fueron el inicio de la Intifada.

Este ciclo es considerado como base del desarrollo, y marca la interacción entre la percepción
de las ideas, potencialidades, posibilidades de expansión (Júpiter) en los temas económicos
(Tauro) y su manifestación en el mundo concreto material (Saturno), el ciclo tiene que ver
con la evolución y el desarrollo de las estructuras económicas y sociales.

El ciclo completo de esta gran conjunción a través de todos los signos del zodiaco es de 960
años, y es considerado importante, en la orientación del mundo. Por ejemplo hubo una gran
mutación en signos de fuego el 8 de Diciembre de 1603 a 8º de Sagitario, y esto se asocia la
colonización de América debido a que Sagitario se asocia a lo religioso, y a los viajes. La gran
mutación a signos de tierra el 26 de Enero de 1842, se asocia al desarrollo del materialismo.

La ultima conjunción de estos dos planetas en Tauro tuvo lugar en 1941, cuando todavía
estaba segunda guerra mundial, es en ese año en el que Estados Unidos entra a la guerra,
durante la primera mitad del ciclo, termina la guerra y empieza la reconstrucción.

Este ciclo también se le relaciona con los presidentes norteamericanos y casi desde 1840 cada
presidente que ha sido electo en un año de la gran conjunción ha muerto durante su mandato.
Tenemos como ejemplo a dos presidentes muertos William Henry Harrison, fue electo en
1840, Lincoln fue electo en 1860. Estas predicciones fueron hechas por el astrólogo Dr. L D
Broughton que decía que cada vez que la gran conjunción se diera en un signo de tierra, el
presidente electo en un año que termine en cero moriría durante su mandato. Otro gran
73
astrólogo Kelsey Richfel hizo un estudio sobre el tema que indica que de todos los
presidentes electos en un año que termina en cero 8 han muerto durante su mandato excepto
Zachary Taylor que no fue electo en un año cero. Kennedy es otro que no fue electo en un
año cero pero si bajo esta gran conjunción en Enero de 1961 en el signo de Capricornio, signo
de tierra y es asesinado en su mandato.

Los planetas Saturno y Júpiter de la conjunción actual que nos ocupa 2000, cuya semilla se
asocia al signo de Tauro, las economías, estarán en oposición a la mitad de su ciclo, no hay
que olvidar que el Euro entra en Vigor a partir del 2000 es posible que haya una crisis
relacionada con las finanzas en este ciclo. Todas las políticas económicas pueden entrar ahora
en crisis, pues se dice que la primera mitad del ciclo se asocia a la expansión y la segunda más
a la depresión. En general cualquier aspecto tenso entre estos dos planetas genera problemas
en la economía y esto lo estamos viendo ahora, cuando escribo este articulo en Noviembre
del 2006 Saturno y Júpiter estuvieron cuadrando, la primera cuadratura se genero en
Diciembre del 2005, Júpiter a 10º de Escorpio Saturno a 10º de Leo, la segunda cuadratura se
genera a los grados 9º de Escorpio y Leo hacia finales de Junio y la última se generó a 23 de
Escorpio y Leo a finales de Octubre del 2006 y se habla de ya de una desaceleración
económica en los Estados Unidos y por consiguiente en sus países socios como México.

Otro de los ciclos que se entreteje con esta gran configuración es el de Saturno y Urano. Este
es un ciclo que dura aproximadamente 45 años. Esta gran conjunción se genera el 23 de
Febrero de 1988 a las 12.50am tiempo de greenwich. Y es seguida en 1989 por la conjunción
Neptuno Saturno, el 4 de Marzo del 1989 a 11.56 de Capricornio. Esta es una época importante
porque entre 1988 y 1989 estaban en capricornio haciendo un stelium Saturno Urano y
Neptuno, si tomamos que el ciclo Saturno Urano corresponde más al capitalismo y el de
Saturno Neptuno más al socialismo y al comunismo los eventos que en este entonces se
generan, dejan sin equilibrio al mundo. Esta triple conjunción constituye una gran transición
desde un sistema bipolar articulado en la pugna entre los Estados Unidos y la Unión
Soviética, a otro protagonizado por la actual hegemonía de Estados Unidos. Existen sin
embargo importantes incertidumbres acerca de este nuevo orden internacional que se inicia
sobre la triple en Capricornio. Por un lado la Unión Europea que sigue en su proceso de
unificación adoptando medidas políticas y económicas como la creación de la nueva moneda
el Euro que entra realmente en vigencia hasta el 2000 y se socia más a la conjunción de
Saturno Júpiter que vimos anteriormente.

En los años 88-89 se produce el fin de la guerra fría, la disolución del bloque comunista en
Europa oriental y la desaparición de la URSS, que pertenece al Ciclo Saturno Neptuno, que
da paso a la Comunidad de Estados Independientes, la desintegración territorial de la antigua
Yugoslavia, el fin de la división del mundo, que tuvo que ver con los bloques que se
formaron después de la segunda guerra mundial. El símbolo es en 1989 la caída del Muro de
Berlín que da paso en 1990 a la reunificación de Alemania, Octubre 3 de 1990 a partir de las
12.00am 13.23E 52.30N. Esta Carta de Alemania tiene a Venus a 1.48 de Libra en conjunción
con el sol a 9 de Libra, ambos cuadrando a Urano a 5 de Capricornio, por tanto este país entra
entre los que van a ser activados, por la configuración.

Otros eventos significativos de este ciclo son las sondas espaciales Fobo I y II que
desaparecen misteriosamente.

74
La NASA anuncia el calentamiento global del planeta

Revueltas estudiantiles en China que terminan en una masacre.

Estados Unidos envía la sonda espacial Magallanes a Venus.

George W Bush padre sube al poder.

En la costa de Alaska encalla superpetróleo EXXON Valdez, creando un desastre ecológico.

Fuerzas militares de Estados Unidos invaden Panamá y ponen fin al régimen de Noriega.

Nelson Mandela es dejado en Libertad a principios de 1990, con la conjunción aun en Orbe.

El ciclo Saturno Urano como resultado de los estudios hechos desde 1625 al presente, se asocia
a la derecha, y esencialmente a los procesos conservativos y autoritarios, para poner la
política en orden (Saturno) Barbault lo asocia a las tendencias capitalistas e imperialistas. En
la astro-economía, se indica este ciclo como crucial en las altas y bajas de las inversiones, la
producción y la industria pesada, que ha sido dominada por los Estados Unidos. También se
asocia a llevar a la realidad (saturno) ideas brillantes, o descubrimientos, o reformas
(Urano).

Los eventos en el medio oriente y las crisis de Israel han ocurrido o tienen conexión con este
ciclo así como con el ciclo Saturno Plutón que parecen ser dominantes para este país y para
esta área del mundo. También se le asocia a Egipto, la Republica se establece en 1953 con una
cuadratura de estos dos planetas, y Sadat es asesinado cuando estos dos planetas están en
cuadratura.

Por ultimo tenemos el ciclo Urano Plutón que inicia en 1965 el día 10 de Octubre, a 17.10º de
Virgo. pero tratándose de dos planetas tan lentos tendrá vigencia hasta Agosto de 1966,
estando aun en orbe estos planetas en el 68.

Este es un ciclo de aproximadamente 127 años, así es el mayor de todos, y generalmente se


asocia a la reestructuración radical del mundo y los países. Ebertin habla del ciclo como de
reconstrucción de lo nuevo (Urano) sobre las ruinas que ha dejado (Plutón) en sus profundas
transformaciones. El ciclo anterior empezó en 1850 a 29.24º de géminis estando Saturno muy
cerca de la gran conjunción a 19.12º del mismo signo Géminis por tanto en este año hubo
también una triple en el mismo signo de Géminis que se asocia a temas de las
comunicaciones por tanto la maquina de vapor, los trenes, el telégrafo, el crecimiento de la
industria forman parte de esta triple que terminó en 1965, generando la siguiente.

Analicemos un poco la trile anterior hacia los años 1850. En México es el fin de la guerra con
Estados Unidos en la cual Santana en 1848 por el tratado de Guadalupe pierde sus provincias
en el norte que junto con Texas representaban la mitad de su territorio, pero todavía en 1853
Santana le vende a Estados Unidos el Valle de Mesilla lo cual lleva a Juárez a levantarse en
una segunda revolución en México. La clase media, abogados, comerciantes, periodistas e
intelectuales, quieren establecer una Republica federalista, para eliminar los privilegios del
Clero y de los militares, esto es lo que lleva a la constitución de 1857.
75
En estados Unidos se estaban discutiendo en aquella época la cuestión de los esclavos, y en el
año 1850 el estado de California es reconocido como libre apoyado por Henry Clay. Como ni
el sur, ni el norte estaban de acuerdo con estas nuevas leyes y la mayoría en el congreso de
Flankin Pierce un demócrata, en la elección de 1852 parecía que la abolición de la esclavitud
sería el tema, estos pleitos son los que realmente en los años 1860 ya estando en el Poder
Abraham Lincoln llevan a la guerra Civil. En esta guerra el Note pierde 5.000 millones de
hombres y el Sur 3.000 millones.

En Europa en Francia Napoleón III sube al poder formando lo que se denomina el Segundo
Imperio.

En Gran Bretaña estaba reinando la Reina Victoria. Inglaterra quería el mercado libre y tenía
aun sus colonias por el mundo.

Rusia en ese tiempo estaba en la guerra por Crimea, que empezó porque Rusia quería retener
su dominio sobre el Imperio Otomán. En esa época reinaba en Rusia Alejandro I., Rusia
Pierde la guerra.

Prusia y Austria firman el tratado de Olsmütz con el fin de juntos hacerse fuerte
militarmente ante los conflictos por la guerra de Crimea y al levantamiento de Napoleón
Tercero.

Italia en esa época, Mazzini y Garibaldi que eran republicanos nacionalistas, y por otro lado
Vincenzo Gioberti un sacerdote del Piamonte, urgen a la confederación de los estados
existentes bajo el liderazgo del Papa. Pero La facción predominante era la de los liberales
leales al liderazgo del Reino de Sardinia. En esa época había revueltas desde Venecia hasta
Sicilia. Carlos Alberto de Sardinia, Fernando segundo Rey de las dos Cicilias y Pio IX y el
gran Duque de Toscana y Florencia se vieron obligados a perdonar a los rebeldes. Dándose
cuenta de que necesitaban ayuda si deseaban la unificación de Italia, Sadinia con Cavour a la
cabeza se une a Francia y Gran Bretaña contra Rusia en la guerra de Crimea, estas alianzas
son las que después llevan a formar el reino de Italia bajo Victor Manuel II.

La conjunción actual de Urano Plutón que inicia en 1965, en el signo de Virgo significa el
momento en el que se inicia o siembra la semilla, la primera cuadratura entres estos dos
planetas se asocia a la manifestación de la cruz de la materia, que ahora se genera representa
que lo que fue sembrado en esos años tendrá ahora sus consecuencias, a nivel colectivo así
como a nivel individual nuevos poderes emergen solo a través de la determinación y la
conciencia y siempre con un esfuerzo y determinación. Generalmente la primera cuadratura
del ciclo se asocia a algún tipo de crisis de confrontación con el fin de ver si las ideas que se
sembraron en aquel entonces 1965 a 68, pueden madurar y florecer cuando se genere el trino
entre estos dos planetas mas tarde. En términos de crecimiento es algo así como cuando la
semilla que se planto esta ahora empujando para salir de la tierra al aire y empezar a crecer
así de largos son los ciclos de estos dos planetas transpersonales.

Los principales eventos en aquel entonces tenían que ver con las nuevas tecnologías
relacionadas con las computadoras, en 1965 IBM anuncia el primer grupo de maquinas
construidas con circuitos integrados serie 360. La conjunción habla también de revoluciones

76
para preservar la libertad, el respeto de toda clase de vida humana, animal o vegetal, ya que
se genera en una signo de tierra Virgo, que se asocia también al trabajo y a la salud corporal.

Durante esta gran conjunción en México se empiezan a generar movimientos estudiantiles


que empiezan en 1966 en la Universidad de Sonora, este primer movimiento se da debido a
que los Sonorenses no entendían porqué sus Gobernadores eran impuestos desde la Ciudad
de México y no podían ser electos por ellos mismos, en ese entonces el único Partido que
había gobernado era el PRI y se utilizaba para elegir a los gobernantes lo que en México se
llama ”El dedazo” es decir el Presidente era quien realmente nombraba a sus Gobernadores.
En la Universidad de Puebla en Julio de 1966 también hubo levantamientos estudiantes, Díaz
Ordaz el entonces Presidente hace un llamado a los estudiantes a no infligir la ley. Un mes
después los Maestros y estudiantes de la Universidad de Michoacán se van a la huelga, por la
muerte de un estudiante, durante una manifestación popular debida a la alza de las tarifas en
el transporte. En Michoacán fueron arrestados 600 estudiantes. En 1967 los estudiantes de
Nuevo León apoyan a las manifestaciones de choferes de autobuses que fueron destituidos de
su trabajo por manifestarse. En 1967 los Estudiantes de Chihuahua logran importantes
concesiones del Gobierno para abrir la Escuela Agronomía de la Universidad de Chihuahua.

Durante este tiempo también hubo huelgas de médicos que terminaron en que los que las
dirigieron pasaron un tiempo tras las rejas. Los planetas estaban en Virgo símbolo de
hospitales, medicina, salud.

Entre 1964 y 1966 había ya dificultades entre los estudiantes en la Universidad Autónoma de
México, forzando en 1966 a la renuncia del Rector Chávez, en el 68 no había realmente
problemas políticos en la Autónoma, pero si supresión en las escuelas Preparatorias por
rivalidades entre ellas.

El movimiento del 68 empieza realmente después de la manifestación del 25 de Julio en que


hubo manifestaciones celebrando el movimiento Castrista por su 15º aniversario de la
Revolución Cubana. Uno de sus líderes Gerardo Unzueta y otros del partido comunista son
arrestados. De ahí los estudiantes piden la renuncia por la represión del Jefe de la Policía Luis
Cueto y que se desapareciera el cuerpo de Granaderos.

La U.NA.M no participa en el movimiento hasta que es ocupada el 1º de Agosto Del 68, el


entonces Rector Barros Sierra dirige una manifestación pacífica con 50.000 estudiantes, para
el 9 de Agosto se une el Instituto Politécnico Nacional, es entonces cuando realmente se
instituye el CNH (Consejo Nacional de Huelga) liderado por Heberto Castillo. Todos
sabemos en que término este movimiento el 2 de Octubre del 1968 en la matanza de
Tlaltelolco.

En Francia en Mayo del 1968 el crisol en el que se fundieron todos los síntomas del malestar
que arrastraba a la sociedad Francesa con fuertes ribetes autoritarios de su Presidente Charles
De Gaulle. Lleva el 3 de Mayo en la Sorbona a la agitación de los estudiantes que habían
intentado participar en una manifestación en apoyo a los obreros. Para el 13 de Mayo los
sindicatos llaman a huelga general bajo el “Alto a la represión, libertad, democracia”. Se
unen los obreros y los estudiantes y para el 20 de Mayo tenían a Francia paralizada. Para el 25
de Mayo el sindicato, organizaciones empresariales y el Gobierno firman acuerdo sobre
salarios mínimos garantizados y el reconocimiento de derechos sindicales.
77
Estos dos movimientos son típicos de esta gran conjunción.

Urano rige la independencia, la autonomía a veces a través de la revolución, tiende a la


revolución pero una vez en el poder puede convertirse en autocrático y totalitario. Puede
asociarse tanto a la izquierda como a la derecha pero siempre va a los extremos. Urano En
Virgo se asocia a un interés por la ecología, por los productos naturales, los nuevos inventos
relacionados con la medicina, la salud, el enfoque práctico inventivo y humano, necesario
para generar cambios que nos proporcionen una mejor salud, con el trabajo que efectuamos
todos los días. Virgo se asocia también a los trabajadores y en algunos casos a los sindicatos
principalmente a aquellos que sirven a la sociedad como son los médicos, los maestros,
campesinos.

Plutón se asocia al poder de las masas, trae consigo procesos de eliminación, regeneración. A
Veces se asocia a los países que emergen, renacen o se reconstruyen, pero también causa
fanatismo, obsesiones, en ideas colectivas o ideales. Plutón en Virgo, trajo consigo nuevos
descubrimientos médicos que revolucionaron la práctica de la medicina, la píldora, el control
de la natalidad, un cambio de actitud hacia el sexo. La comprensión de los peligros inherentes
a los aditivos en los alimentos, pero también trajo consigo, la represión en las huelgas de
maestros, médicos, y estudiantes, y demandas y oportunidades iguales en el trabajo para las
minorías. Así es de esperar que las minorías reprimidas surjan y clamen por justicia, libertad,
democracia real.

Puede indicar que en ese tiempo algo tiene que cambiar, pues si vemos que con la triple en
Capricornio el mundo y la política mundial tuvo cambios espectaculares, ahora Plutón será
quien este en Capricornio y Urano en Aries indicando probablemente un nuevo inicio, unas
nuevas estructuras.

Todo lo anterior y siendo plutón el que cuadra a todos los demás ciclos, habla de una crisis
mayor de inestabilidad y tensión, la urgencia de actualizar las ideas, los retos a los que se
verá confrontada la humanidad en su conjunto por el deseo de subsistencia.

Tal vez nos demos cuenta que el mundo sobre poblado, y los recursos naturales de los que
hemos hecho un mal uso se vuelvan contra nosotros. Tal vez podemos empezar a crear
conciencia sobre lo que le hemos hecho a nuestro mundo, a nuestro entorno, pues finalmente
la tierra es nuestra casa y si no hacemos algo, ella se revelará a través de eventos de tipo
natural. Ya es bien sabido por nuestros científicos que los glaciares se están derritiendo
causando cambios en el clima, y de esto ya tenemos las consecuencias en los últimos años,
inundaciones, ciclones, pero a la vez zonas de sequía, lo cual destruye las cosechas, (que
también son símbolo de Virgo) y es posible que los alimentos no sean suficientes para la
sobre-población del mundo. el fenómeno del NIÑO, ha ido creciendo. Las preguntas que nos
deberíamos hacer serán ¿Seremos capaces de crear nuestros alimentos, y de dejar de utilizar
los productos energéticos que ya de por si se nos están acabando, e utilizarlos de forma
conciente?. ¿Serán capaces los gobernantes del mundo de llegar a acuerdos de respeto mutuo?
Tendrán los gobernantes la sensibilidad para escuchar las necesidades de sus pueblos?. Otro
peligro son los desacuerdos filosóficos y religiosos, que ahora causan guerras, terrorismo,
además de los países que poseen armas nucleares, espero que no lleguemos a que un loco
apriete el botón. Por último este ciclo siempre habla de las diferencias entre los países
“desarrollados” y los subdesarrollados, entre los que tienen el poder financiero y los que no lo
78
tienen, y entre las clases en el poder y las minorías que no tienen nada que perder, por eso es
frecuente que se manifiesten en estos ciclos revoluciones, así que tal vez el mundo debería
crear un equilibrio entre la riqueza extrema de algunos y la pobreza y marginación de la
mayoría.

No quiero ser fatalista, pero algo es seguro el mundo como ahora lo conocemos se verá en la
necesidad de hacer cambios mayores.

Es hacia mediados del año 2010 en el mes de Julio en que todos los planetas estarán
Creando la mayor tensión en durante el mes de julio aquí tenemos a Saturno a 0 de Libra, a
Júpiter a 3 de Aries, a Urano a 0 de Aries, y a plutón a 3 de Capricornio. Haciendo aspectos
tensos.

Como sabemos los detonadores de estas configuraciones universales, pueden ser los tránsitos
de Marte, los tránsitos del sol y las lunaciones. Hacia finales de Julio el día 31 tanto el
tránsito de la Luna como el de Marte activan la configuración y los primeros días de agosto
del 2010 Marte el planeta que a veces es el detonador de los conflictos entra a los
primeros grados de libra, activa peligrosamente esta configuración. Marte el símbolo del
“Dios de la Guerra”, como planeta que se asocia al fuego a la guerra, a las explosiones a veces
en este tipo de configuraciones a accidentes aéreos por la intervención de Urano y Júpiter que
se asocian a los viajes, hace esta configuración peligrosa. Otro detonador de acontecimientos
podría ser la luna llena en los ejes Libra Aries, que tendrá lugar el 23 de Septiembre del 2010 a
las 9.17am tiempo de Greenwich..

En la carta del 31 de Julio a nivel astrocartrografico, Marte Saturno en el MC y Júpiter Urano


y la Luna en el Bajo cielo apuntan al norte de Canadá Longitud 135 Oeste, y hacia los polos
Norte y Sur. Plutón asciende por la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos a la altura de
San Diego, la falla de San Andrés. El cruce de Plutón con estas oposiciones esta a la altura
del Ecuador en el Mar longitud 135.Oeste.

La Luna Júpiter y Urano ascienden y Plutón se encuentra en el MC en la parte norte de


Brasil a la altura de Recife y Saturno y Urano descienden por el mismo lugar por el Océano
atlántico hacia Groenlandia aproximadamente en la Longitud 33Oeste La líneas tocan otra
vez pero en otra longitud las zonas polares, Ártica y Antártica.

Las líneas de Marte y Saturno ascienden por Australia cerca de Melbourne atraviesan Nueva
Guinea hacia Sapporo en Japón por donde descienden Júpiter Urano y la Luna y esta en el
bajo cielo Plutón.

Si vemos la segunda carta astrocartografica del 23 de Septiembre del 2010 a las 9.17, Luna
Llena activando la configuración tenemos a el sol en el MC en conjunción con Saturno,
opuestos a la Luna Júpiter y Urano entre la latitud 40-45º tocando Mozambique, Kenia,
Etiopía, Israel, Siria, Turquía, muy cerca de Moscú.

Urano la Luna y Júpiter ascienden Por la parte central de Australia, entre la longitud 130-135
Este, tocando alguna Islas de Indonesia la Isla Mindanao, suben hacia Corea, El sol
Desciende por las Islas Molucas, Timor atraviesa Australia central a la altura de Alice

79
Springs, y Saturno desciende por Osaka el Norte de nueva Guinea, y Australia central a la
altura de Adelaide.

El sol y Saturno ascienden por Brasil Sao Paolo y Río son tocados suben hacia Groenlandia y
bajan a la Antartida. Júpiter Urano y la Luna descienden por Groenlandia a Brasil cerca de
donde desembocan varios ríos como el Amazonas al mar. Plutón en el Bajo cielo esta justo en
la desembocadura de los Ríos. Bajan hacia Uruguay y a la frontera entre Uruguay y
Argentina en donde desemboca el Río de la Plata. Como Septiembre es un mes de Lluvias y
de ciclones estas áreas pueden verse afectadas.

Júpiter Urano y la Luna en el MC en Alaska Apuntando otra vez las zonas Ártica Antártica
y el Sol y Saturno en el bajo cielo en la ártica y Alaska. La línea de Plutón cruzando en el
Ecuador

Estos mapas indican claramente los polos de la tierra, las zonas de hielo, como puntos
importantes a tomar en cuenta. Además de la zona de por si caliente del medio Oriente y
Corea.

The Tortuguero

Mayan End Date

Carl Johan Calleman, Sweden

thus seemed obvious that the

have been the basis of the prophetic

the various deities associated with it as superstitions. Yet, I came from a different scientific
tradition, and was primarily interested in if the Mayan time cycles and deities were true
reflections of reality. In the beginning of my scientific career in the seventies I had thus
been mentored by a member of the Nobel committee in Stockholm and had then at least
indirectly seen how science operates from what arguably is its highest level. This meant
among other things zero tolerance for making up theories from “beliefs” without empirical
facts to back them up and constant emphasis on experimental reality checks. At least
professionally this has remained my mind set ever since and the fact that some people
believe that Jesus was born on December 25 or that the Mayan calendar ends on December 21
does not constitute proof for me that this is actually the case.

T he idea that there were as many as nine Underworlds was for a long time
criticized by some who said that there was only one cycle of a longer duration
in the Mayan calendar system, namely the 5,125 year Long Count. Yet, already
then there were some indications that the Maya had recognized nine steps of evolution. It
was for instance known that the Long Count was sometimes referred to as ruled by the Six-
Sky-Lord, indicating that it was the sixth level, and that there were names for time periods
beginning with that of the first of the nine levels, the hablatun. Based on these indications of
nine levels I proposed my theory since it could be empirically substantiated from human
history even though some thought that it was not orthodox enough. Somewhat later, in 1996,
Mayanists however started to decipher Monument 6 in Tortuguero, only some 50 kilometers
west of Palenque, which would further strengthen my model of nine levels of evolution. For
the first time an inscription was found that seemed to refer to what would happen at the end
date at least from the perspective of a Mayan king around AD 670.

More broadly this inscription only gained attention in 2006 and its final text according
to David Stuart, who is an expert on Mayan glyphs, reads essentially like this: Tzuhtz-(a)j-
oom u(y)-uxlajuun pik (ta) Chan Ajaw ux(-te’) Uniiw. Uht-oom ? Y-em(al)?? Bolon
Yookte’ K’uh ta?

82
or translated to English: “The Thirteenth ‘Bak’tun” will be finished (on) Four Ajaw, the
Third of Uniiw (K’ank’in). ? will occur. (It will be) the descent (??) of the Nine Support?
God(s) to the ?. "
As is common with such ancient inscriptions they may be difficult to read partly
because the glyphs are effaced (which is the case here) and partly because the meanings of
the glyphs are not unambiguous. The critical part from our perspective is the deities (or
deity) called Bolon Yookte, who at the end date would “descend.” To understand how to
interpret this I think it is important to know two things about ancient Mayan deities. The
first is that they were not as personalized as for instance Roman or Nordic deities, who were
perceived to act more or less as individuals. A Mayan (or Aztec) deity instead typically
symbolized a cosmic force associated with a time period and the mythologies of these
peoples really describe fairly high level impersonal cosmic relationships. Hence, we know
how the ancient day-signs were carried by daybearers, deities that were associated with
particular days. Time periods, gods and day-signs were thus more or less interchangeable
and it depended on the context how they would be expressed. The second thing to know is
that these deities could easily split into several different deities and vice versa depending on
whether the context called for the whole or its parts to be expressed. This is almost certainly
the case with Bolon Yookte, which can be seen as a whole deity with nine parts or as nine
parts constituting a whole. Bolon Yookte is at the same time a whole and its nine parts
because Mayan cosmology is essentially holistic and looks upon everything in creation as
connected.

J ohn Major Jenkins in 2006 wrote an important and interesting article about the Bolon
Yookte: Comments on the 2012 text on Tortuguero Monument 6 and Bolon Yookte Ku,
http://edj.net/mc2012/bolon-yokte.html, where he summarizes epigraphic information
about this deity called Bolon Yookte, which according to the abovementioned inscription
will descend at the Mayan end date. Among other things he cites an article by Gillespie and
Joyce that states that Bolon Yookte was called “the God of the Nine Steps” and also that this
was a deity that was present already at the beginning of creation as can be seen from the
famous Vase of the Seven Lords. He also cites Eberl and Prager, who said that the Bolon
Yookte was associated with the underworld, wars and conflict. Really what this is telling us
is that the structure of Nine Steps of evolution, Nine Underworlds, has existed from the
very beginning of creation, what we in modern terminology would call the Big Bang. The
Tortuguero Monument 6, and Jenkins study of their meaning, thus provides a perfect
verification of the theory I proposed fifteen years ago. The Bolon Yookte are the Nine levels
of evolution carried out by the nine underworlds. These nine Underworlds are then
obviously also associated with the Seven Lords of Creation (the seven DAYS) as can be seen
from the famous Mayan vase. Moreover, as we know from history, all of these Underworlds
are associated with conflicts and wars, since shifts in cosmic energies generate shifting
balances of power and as a result, warfare. To me, the relationships between these Mayan
deities provide a model of evolution that has been verified by massive empirical evidence.
Because of this connection to reality this is crucial information for humanity at the present
time and not mere mythical relationships.

What this inscription means is that on the end date there is not just one cosmic power
that will manifest, but Nine and that these were symbolized by a Nine-Step pyramid that
was Bolon Yookte – The God of Nine Steps. It is also clear from Jenkins’ article that Bolon
Yookte was associated with the World Tree, which especially my forthcoming book ‘The

83
Purposeful Universe’ will demonstrate as the source of all creation – not as a myth, but as a
reality. In light of the Tortuguero monument I feel the model of Nine Underworlds and
Thirteen Heavens can only be denied by someone, who completely ignores not only the
actual Mayan inscriptions, but also the massive empirical evidence of how the Mayan
calendar system is connected to reality. If instead this body of evidence is recognized it is
however easy to see how in their mythology the Maya would interchange deities, time
periods and cosmic energies in a way that can now help us make sense of evolution and how
it has played out in biological and historical reality.

The Bolon Yookte, the Nine-step God with its Nine Underworlds, as this is symbolized by
the Pyramid of the Jaguar in Tikal. The Nine Underworlds will all be completed, “the Bolon
Yookte will descend”, at the same time and to symbolize this synchronistic event the
pyramid has a straight back. Photograph by the author.
The verification from the Tortuguero monument that the ancient Maya looked upon
the end of creation as the simultaneous descent of Nine different deities, or manifestation of
nine cosmic forces, is however very timely as we are now on the eighth level of evolution
and soon about to climb up one step to the ninth level, the Universal Underworld. It is not
an exaggeration to say that for many people now their future will directly depend on
knowing exactly how the energies of these nine levels will be playing out. Today it is thus
crucial to know about this basic structure of evolution, Nine Underworlds and Thirteen
Heavens, and the exact timing of activation of the different wave movements of creation.
That nine deities will descend (nine cosmic forces manifest) simultaneously at the end date
is thus no longer an unorthodox idea, but instead the only meaningful explanation that can
be given to Tortuguero monument 6. What this means is also that the Bolon Yookte
mentioned at the Tortuguero monument is not about a single event occurring only at a
specific date. It is instead about nine different wave movements; each generated by the
Seven Lords of Creation (the seven days in each Underworld) going back to the beginning of the
universe (the Big Bang) when, as Jenkins also points out, Bolon Yookte was already present.
Thus, any viable theory about the meaning of the Mayan calendar needs to be able to
account for such long term evolutionary processes, spanning up to 16.4 billion years. As a
84
consequence, serious researchers need to take their focus off from what might happen on a
single day, the end date, since this can only be understood in a much larger context. From
this perspective it is thus a problem that especially many American “experts on 2012”, along
the lines of the upcoming Hollywood movie 2012, have committed themselves to some
physical event that they associate with the singular December 21, 2012 date, such as a pole
shift, a galactic alignment, a volcanic eruption, an asteroid impact, a solar flare or some other
(usually not very well-founded) idea of what may happen on this particular day. Given the
total unreasonableness of such ideas, especially in light of the Tortuguero monument, is it
not time that they instead start considering an evolutionary model for the Mayan calendar
that is consistent with this monument? “2012” has for too long been a playground for pseudo-
science and the many unfounded “singular day” ideas blur the fact that the end scenario of
the Mayan calendar is really about a socio-economic transformation resulting from processes
influencing human consciousness. It is thus about the human beings themselves and how we
co-create the birth of a new world and not about any geological or astronomical event that
we only would be observers of anyway.

T
here is of course a reason that, as I pointed out before, no one advocating the October
28, 2011 end date has ever advocated or been lured into advocating that this date would
be “the end of the world.” This is that this date emanates organically from an
evolutionary process and is not associated with any real or purported physical or
astronomical event. It is simply the day when the universe after nine major quantum steps,
starting with the beginning of the universe, attains its highest energy state and there is no
logical reason that this would mean the end of the world. It is just an evolutionary completion
point when Bolon Yookte fully descends. When it comes to the many events that have been
purported to be associated with the singular December 21, 2012 date on the other hand it is not
surprising that they invite speculations about the end of the world. If you for instance propose
that this end date is about a pole shift or a giant burst of gamma rays from the galactic center,
why should people not believe that this could be the end of the world? To propose physical
events is like asking for the mainstream media to create fear and hopelessness around the real
transformation that is about to occur.
I thus believe it will be people at large that will suffer most from the neglect of the
understanding we may gain from the ancient Maya, which as we have seen speaks about the
fulfillment of a composite of nine evolutionary forces, the Bolon Yookte Ku, and not what happens
on a single day. Because of all the confusing information focusing on December 21, 2012 that is
already out there I feel however that people will start to align with the true end date of October 28,
2011, not because they realize that the energetic end date logically must be 13.13.13.13.13.13.13.13.13 13
Ajaw or that the 4 Ajaw end date was the result of politics much like the placing of the birth of
Jesus at December 25 by the Christian Church. People are instead likely to come to accept the
October 28, 2011 date in practice simply because they will not be able to deny the actual wave
movement of energies that they themselves are experiencing, especially in the socio-economic
realm. Yet, for those seeking to consciously co-create the birth of a new world a knowledge of how
the cosmic energies lead up to the October 28, 2011 date will be instrumental, simply because without
it no understanding of how the new world will be born, and how this is timed, will be possible.
Hence, the activation of these energies, and their preparatory phases in the Galactic and Universal
Underworlds will, as always, take place according to a very precise relative timing until the Bolon
Yookte, the nine underworlds, will “descend”, manifest fully, and create the foundation for a
millennium of peace – the end of the Shift of the Ages.

The Final Mayan
Calendar
Steps to 2012
Nov 8, 2009 – the beginning of the Sixth
Night
By
Carl Johan Calleman, Sweden

B efore going into the specifics of the


upcoming sixth night, November 8,
2009 – November 2, 2010, of the
Galactic Wave Movement (or Underworld)
I feel I should clarify some of my basic
points of departure for understanding the
Carl Johan Calleman is considered the Mayan calendar, since the various ideas that
are currently proposed for this vary
foremost authority on the Mayan Calendar significantly. There are for instance those
having written two bestselling books titled that believe that the end date of the Mayan
‘Solving the Great Mystery Of Our Times: calendar only marks the end of a cycle and
The Mayan Calendar & The Mayan the beginning of a new. On my own part I
Calendar and the Transformation of however think that we are approaching
something much more profound than just a
Consciousness. From 1979 when most of us
point in a cycle that again will be repeated.
did not know about the Mayan Calendar till The only Mayan inscription from ancient
now he has delved deeper and deeper into it, times, the Tortuguero monument, which
travelled extensively. He has travelled to 20 describes the end (http://bit.ly/3Ni2rD) of
countries spreading the message of their calendar says that nine cosmic forces
Transformation of Consciousness. He is well will then manifest. Empirically, there is also
known to bring out a master to the western overwhelming evidence from modern
world like Don Alejandro Oxlaj, head of the research that we are approaching a point in
council of elders of the Maya. Mr Calleman time when nine evolutionary levels (so
work can be viewed at www.calleman.com called Underworlds) of the cosmic plan are
simultaneously going to be completed. This
would imply that we are approaching not
another cycle or another shift, but the end to
all shifts, which have been driving evolution
since the beginning of the universe. Such an
end to all shifts could conceivably provide
the basis for a harmonious eternal peace on
Earth.
86
What is about to transpire now is in other words not something that has ever happened
before in the history of the universe. Maybe this impending change, partially unknown,
causes the widespread denial that I feel dominate many people at the current moment.
Rather than facing a great change in our socioeconomic relationships (since any change in
human consciousness also implies a change in our relationships) many prefer to fantasize
about some physical or astronomical event, that purportedly is going to happen on December
21, 2012. In reality the Mayan calendar is however not about something that will happen on a
singular date, but a description of a divine plan for the evolution of humankind where
quantum shifts between calendrical energies bring about shifts in consciousness. Thus,
human consciousness will continue to be transformed step by step in accordance with this
plan until we come to the real end date of the process of creation, October 28, 2011. At this
date the highest quantum state of the universe will be attained (13.13.13.13.13.13.13.13.13 13 Ahau)
when the shifts disrupting the harmony will come to an end. Obviously, we are not there
yet.

I n this plan for the evolution of consciousness we are now approaching the sixth night of
the Galactic Wave Movement, the eighth of the nine levels, which will begin on
November 8, 2009. If my understanding of the Mayan calendar is correct we will in this
coming night be witnessing the most significant transformation of consciousness ever in the
history of mankind. What is exciting about this is that I feel that a relatively clear picture of
how a new world is going to be born is now finally becoming evident. On the other hand,
what is also becoming increasingly clear is that this birth is likely to become very
demanding. For this reason it becomes all the more important to understand how some of
the difficulties ahead actually serve the delivery of this new world even though it may not
always seem that they do so in the moment. If people can gain a realistic understanding of
how this new world will be born they may be able to keep a hope for the future, which is
based on something more than mere wishful thinking. Unfortunately, much confusion
reigns about the Mayan calendar and many that present themselves as experts on this deny
the ancient Mayan knowledge that there are nine cosmic forces that are about to manifest,
and that it is these, and nothing else, that explains why a new world will be born.
Thus, what will happen in the time ahead cannot be understood from the sixth night of the
Galactic Underworld alone. The overlapping of the cycles preparing for the ninth, and
highest, level in the cosmic evolution scheme; the Universal Wave Movement (see Figure)
with the energy of this sixth night will then also need to be taken into consideration.
Because of this overlapping, and the speed-up of time associated especially with the latter
Wave Movement, not only do I think that the upcoming period will be unusually intense,
but also energetically quite complex.

At the time of this writing (October 31, 2009, 1 Ben) we are towards the end of the sixth day,
the period of flowering in the process from seed to mature fruit in the Galactic Wave
Movement, which precedes the sixth night. As I predicted in an earlier article it would now
to some economists seem that the “global economic recession” (or the worst of it) is already
over. There are however certain things currently going on in the world that belies this and
are more in line with the prediction I made in an article in May (http://bit.ly/qeisX) of a
further economic downturn, especially expressed in a fall in the value of the US dollar, to
take place around the time that the sixth night begins (see also: http://bit.ly/2faPHG).

87
While several sources now predict a dollar fall it is important to note that mine was made a
relatively long time ago and if it proves to be correct shows that what is happening in the
economy is part of a divine plan charted by the Mayan calendar.
My prediction of a further economic downturn was based on the observation that nights, at
least in the second part of an evolutionary Wave Movement, usually mean at the very least a
slowdown of economic growth. An indication of such an impending downturn at this
upcoming night is for instance that there has been a rush for gold, which for the first time
passed the magical limit of USD 1000/troy ounce. Moreover, an index of insider trading
shows that people knowledgeable about the actual basis for valuing US stock tend to think of
this as highly overvalued. Most importantly, increasingly higher voices are now raised in
almost all corners of the world for the replacement of the petrodollar system and thus also of
the use of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. These various indices thus do not
indicate that the “recession” is over, but if anything that an intensification of the economic
decline, especially in the indebted West, is imminent. It seems that investors are escaping
assets in the form of paper or digit values, which is exactly what we would expect from this
late phase of the Galactic Wave Movement, when a shift in consciousness amounting to a
shift from abstract to concrete economic values is taking place. Thus, while many will say
that the changes are a result of a conspiracy, for instance against the US, the point to realize
is that if that were the case they would not have been predictable from the Mayan calendar.
I believe that what is happening in the world’s economy is something much more profound
and fundamental than a temporary recession and is a direct consequence of the particular
transformation of consciousness that the Galactic Wave Movement is bringing. As I explain
in my new book The Purposeful Universe (http://bit.ly/yvXjH) consciousness is primarily
a relationship to the Tree of Life, which exists on many different levels of the cosmos and
causes synchronized shifts on these different levels. What this means is that the shifts in
consciousness that give new directions to our lives will also directly affect the world and
society at large and how we relate to this. A shift in consciousness is hence not something
that only happens in our heads, but is simultaneously also expressed in changes in our
relationships. Our economic relationships are thus also subject to shifts in consciousness and
88
the evolution of this. We should then expect an even further escape from abstract values as
the sixth night begins, a shift that may be expected to especially severely hit the western
economies of the United States and the United Kingdom, which remain the financial centers
of the world and control much of its banking activities. At the present time these nations,
and especially the United States, are so indebted that there really is no need to present an
explanation as to why there would be another downturn in its economy. All that is needed
for this is something to trigger what is going to happen anyway one way or another. While
many things may trigger such a downturn, and the media will place all the emphasis on this
trigger, the deeper reasons for a downturn is best understood from the Mayan calendar.
From a Mayan calendar perspective the ongoing decline in economic growth reflects a
stepwise adaptation to the end of the economic cycles that will be associated with the Mayan
end date (or beginning date of a new world if you like).

I f the downturn of the economy is part of a process


creating the conditions for the birth of a new world a
relevant question to ask is how deep it is going to be.
Even if it seems clear that the value of paper money, and
especially the US dollar, will be hit, it is still somewhat of
an open question how far-reaching the consequences of
this will be. I think this can only be understood from a
study of what might be the nature of the new world to be
born. When it comes to understanding this it seems
however that there are actually no ancient Mayan sources to consult. The Mayan sources
only say that Nine cosmic forces are going to manifest as the calendar comes to an end, but
there is no ancient inscription, which talks about what will follow upon this. Because of this
dearth of material I suggest that we turn to sources from the large Abrahamic religions such
as the Bible or the Quran, which do say something on the matter. If we combine these with
our understanding from the Mayan calendar I feel we may gain some idea of what is to
come. I believe everything that has been happening in this time plan has been subordinated
to the delivery of this new world.
Hence, the Quran says this in Surah 82:17-19: “And what will explain to thee what the Day
of Judgment is? Again, what will explain to thee what the Day of Judgment is? (It will be)
the Day when no soul shall have power (to do) aught for another: For the command, that
Day, will be (wholly) with Allah.” I believe this disappearance of dominance may refer to
the Universal Underworld, which brings a consciousness of oneness and transparency to our
whole beings and all of our past actions. If we take this seriously it would imply that all
chains to people dominating others would need to be broken. The last book of the Bible, the
Book of Revelation 21:4-5 also describes a new world to be born: “And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat
upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.” This would seem to imply that all
chains to the past would need to be broken for the new world to be born. Taken together it
would seem that as pre-requisites for the birth of a new earth we would need to free
ourselves from the chains to the past as well as from chains to other people.
To some these changes may look so great that it might even be more comfortable to
fantasize that the world would come to an end than to go through all of the necessary
changes that would more or less turn our world upside down. Certainly, there is also a
tremendous amount of people in power, who do not want to see such a transformation

89
towards equality and harmony coming about. These quotes may however give us a hint
about where the economic downturn may be leading us and how deep it will be. Will money
for instance completely disappear? I think the answer to this is that money will disappear to
the extent that it no longer chains the world to the past. In practice, this probably means that
all thinking about profitable investing etc is somewhat beside the point, since the emerging
new world is not likely to be a growth economy based on the drive for accumulation of
abstract values. More likely, the new world is going to be one based on sharing and care-
taking of all members of society as the unity consciousness of the Universal Wav
Movement, presumably after much turmoil, eventually is established. The more immediate
time period in the sixth night will then be when the practical expressions of this
transformation will need to be tested out and implemented. This may from the perspective
of the current world seem unthinkable. Yet, there is no such thing as an eternal human
nature and our perception of reality, and what we are propelled to create, always varies
between the different Wave Movements. The human beings of the Regional, National,
Planetary and Galactic Wave Movements are completely different in their approach to life
and the universal human being that will be created by the Ninth and Universal Wave
Movement will represent the crowning step of the evolution of consciousness. Thus, she is
then likely to embody a different perception of the world and different qualities compared to
previously. An economy based on sharing is of course fully possible if the unity
consciousness carried by the Universal Wave Movement is successfully established. Even if
the energy changes will now be happening quickly I should add that it may take some time
(in the range of a few years after 2011) until this economy takes its final form.

So how in practice could such a transition come about from a human being, who
essentially looks after herself to one that sees the unity of all and shares the fruits of
creation? Such a transformation of our experience of life may now seem as impossible as the
fall of the Berlin Wall once seemed. But similarly to how the fall of the Berlin Wall
ultimately was a reflection of a transcendence of an east-west polarity in human
consciousness the new world to be born is designed to result from a transcendence of the
inner and outer walls maintained especially by the western mind. Thus, my suspicion is that
during the first half of the sixth night the world’s economy will increasingly slow down as
the consumption of the US population will no longer be able to keep the industrial engines
of the world going. The power of the US in the world would decrease as a result of a dollar
fall.* Yet, because of the indirect effects of this downturn, no part of the world can expect to
be untouched. In this downturn it will then come a point when it will start to dawn on many
people that it will never be possible to resurrect the old growth economy and that there will
never be any return to a “business as usual.” At that point very radical socio-economic
solutions will need to be explored for people to survive also in a literal physical sense as it
becomes obvious that it is the nature of the economic relationships and the chains to the
economy of the past that cause the problems. We may for instance ask what will happen if
major portions of the population in economically significant countries will not be able to pay
their mortgages? Will these people then have to leave their houses in mass so that countless
houses owned by banks will sit empty when people are out on the streets? This is the kind of
situation that has already appeared in some previously car manufacturing suburbs of Detroit.
Hence, this scenario is not hypothetical, but has already to some extent happened on a
limited scale.
What likely will happen then is that demands will be raised for a moratorium on
debts, so that people will no longer have to pay to the banks to stay in their homes. Maybe

90
this will be preceded on a larger scale by some nations that see it necessary to push for the
cancellations of national debts as a means of stabilizing the world. If such a moratorium on
debts is instituted it would however be like cancelling the power of money and the chains to
the past as it exists now. This would effectively create a path towards a sustainable economy
an economy where it is emphasized that the needs of people are met in the present moment
(returning to the theme of cutting the chains of the past). This of course would be nothing
short of a revolution, and most likely a worldwide such, since the worlds’ economies at the
current time are so deeply entangled. Possibly this would spread from the US to much of the
rest of the world. Such an enormous transformation of the world’s socio-economic system
would then be likely to take place in the time period between July 17, 2010 (the Cosmic
Convergence)** and the beginning of the Seventh day of the Galactic Wave Movement
(November 3, 2010). Naturally, it would serve to dissolve many of the other systems of
dominance that the world has inherited especially from the National, but also the Planetary,
Wave Movement. Energetically speaking this time period, July 17- November 3, 2010, is
created through the overlap of the pre-Universal Underworld and the Galactic Wave
Movement.*** What this revolutionary time period most likely is going to amount to is a
corresponding decrease of governmental and national authority (not that of any particular
government, but governmental authority as such, something which humanity has inherited
from the National Wave Movement and its patriarchal frame of consciousness. Needless to
say some would try to take advantage of such a situation). It will seriously come into
question what we need governments and national borders for “when no soul shall have
power (to do) aught for another.” My vision for the time period from the Cosmic
Convergence until the beginning of the seventh day of the Galactic Wave Movement is thus
a total overhaul of human civilization. This then would also be a time to make choices of
path individually.

W hy would this particular time period, July 17, 2010 – November 2, 2010, bring such
a revolutionary transformation? Well, there are two earlier time periods that are
noteworthy as parallels to this upcoming one. One is AD 1498-1617, the
Renaissance, which in a broad sense meant the overturning of the feudal system that saw the
Vatican as the ultimate source of worldly power and the beginning of the modern era. The
other is 1986-1992, which carried a revolutionary wave of democracy (including the fall of the
Berlin Wall) resulting in a world whose hemispheres were no longer separated.
We may also notice that the two corresponding revolutionary time periods gave rise to new
expressions of spirituality, in the first case the Reformation and in the second the Harmonic
Convergence**** that became somewhat of a starting point for the eclectic New Age
movement of our own time. This would indicate that also this time, following the Cosmic
Convergence, there will be a new spiritual awakening. Since the Cosmic Convergence would
be the first breeze of a unity consciousness this would imply that people would then be
divinely inspired to share and recognize the unity of all creation. I believe it will be a
spirituality beyond words based on the immediate experience of the divine. Hence, while the
Reformation was an awakening emphasizing the written word and the New Age movement
originated in esoteric ideas that were sometimes channeled or spoken I believe that the
spiritual awakening ahead will not be something that can be formulated in words and will be
based on plain knowing.
I feel it is an open question whether this transformative revolution between July 17
and November 3, 2010 will be peaceful, but the parallel to the time period 1986-1992 indicates
that this at least is possible. What seems clear however is that people will be divided as to

91
whether they want to flow with the incoming energies leading towards a new world or if
they will resist them and seek to hold on to or go back to the system of the past. It is then no
wonder that strong forces will try to present the Mayan calendar as if it is about something
that will happen on the date December 21, 2012. (A typical example of this is the upcoming
Hollywood movie 2012, a disaster movie, but most New Age gurus have prepared the ground
for these nonsense fears by emphasizing this singular date and ignoring that the Mayan
calendar is constituted by nine levels of evolution). How people will relate to this change
will thus also depend on the understanding people have of the Mayan calendar and the
cosmic plan, which at the current time only a very small minority is aware of at least in its
true form as a manifestation of nine cosmic forces. People at large may in fact never
recognize any conscious warning signals for what is to come. Yet, inasmuch as they
understand that the large-scale changes emanate from a divine plan this would mean that a
spiritual awakening could take place. If this happens they will not be inclined to look at the
changes around them as just meaningless chaotic events as they surely will be presented by
the dominating media.
Considering that this is all about the participation in a process of evolution of
consciousness there is a great danger in people believing that the Mayan calendar is about a
singular date when some event will take place, whether this is made up to be a “pole shift”,
“galactic alignment,” “Planet X,” “end of the world” or “shift in consciousness.” This is an
incredibly naïve view of an essentially superstitious nature where a new world is believed to
simply fall down upon the human beings from the sky without their active and conscious
participation in the processes leading up to a state of unity consciousness. In reality, there is
overwhelming evidence that the Mayan calendar describes sequential shifts in
consciousness, which will begin to be experienced at an even higher frequency after July 17,
2010 and even more markedly so after the beginning of the actual Universal Wave
Movement on March 8, 2011. Only at October 28, 2011 will the shifts come to an end and a
unity consciousness stabilize that will provide the basis for a millennium of peace. This
frequency increase incidentally also explains how such a tremendous overhaul of all systems
of dominance could take place in such a short period of time. A recommendation I would
like to make, in addition to ethical living and telling the truth, is to learn to flow with the
ninth level (http://bit.ly/WWjiG). Stay in the middle of the river with a focus on the
manifestation of the new world!

* The effects of a significant fall in the value of the US dollar on its economy are not
uncomplicated. Domestic trading would in principle (this is an oversimplification) be
unaffected, while US exports would become more competitive. It would however be certain
to decrease the power of the US in the world, since its companies could be bought at a lower
cost in other currencies and since for instance oil imports would become much more
expensive.

** In my earlier books I have vacillated when it comes to the duration of the Universal
Underworld, sometimes thinking that it will be a tzolkin round of 260 days and sometimes
that it would be a twentieth of the Galactic Underworld, which would amount to 13 x 18 =
234 days. As we are now getting close to the final transformation scenario I have come to
lean over to the idea that the Universal Underworld will indeed be 234 days long placing its
beginning at March 8, 2011 and the beginning of the preceding pre-Universal Underworld at
July 17, 2010. The uncertainty with this is that there seems to be no ancient Mayan source
describing such a 18 day oxlahunkin time period, even if it would seem to be the logical one.

92
On the other hand the ancient Maya did not have to deal with the transformation scenario
into a new world and so may have ignored this time period, while it still may become very
important in our own time. There is in fact a precedent to how a cycle only became followed
by the Maya as its effects became a reality. This is the so-called Short Counts of 13 katuns,
which were not observed in Classical Mayan times presumably because their effects were
then not yet strongly felt. Only later in Post-Classical times did the effects of these Short
Counts become so strong that they became the dominating cycles followed by the Maya and
so came to replace the Long Count as the central calendrical cycle. Thus, if the Classical
Maya did not base their calendars on the Short Counts they would have had even less reason
to take a 18 day cycle into account, which to them would have an effect only in a very distant
future.

*** What is played out here is the interaction between overlapping time periods produced
by dividing the Galactic Underworld into 13 and 20, respectively, as a parallel to the
energetic overlaps of the trecena and the uinal in the tzolkin. If the Galactic Underworld of
4680 days is divided by 13 it generates a day or night of 360 days, but if it is divided by 20 it
generates a wave movement totaling 234 days.

**** The Cosmic Convergence called for on July 17-18 is thus a direct parallel to the
Harmonic Convergence in the sense that what the Harmonic Convergence was to the
Galactic Underworld the Cosmic Convergence will be to the Universal Underworld. This
means that the Cosmic Convergence may not only become the beginning of a
transformative political period similarly to what happened in 1986, but also the first breeze
of a spiritual awakening that will later be fully expressed in the Universal Underworld.

Napoleon’s Astrocartography
By
Christine Kaspers, Netherlands

T his is an astrological technique, developed by Jim Lewis in the last century. What is
this technique all about? It all has to do with angles and the planets in a horoscope.
Say we look at the Sun. Where on earth would you have the Sun on the Ascendant,
on the Descendant, on the Mc , on the Ic? Since Mc and Ic have to do with south and north,
those lines are vertical projected on earth. Ascendant and Descendant have to do with east
and west and are projected like that on earth. Since the earth is not flat, those lines become a
kind of waves around the globe.

Horoscope Napoleon Bonaparte1

1
The author is aware that 2 other birthtimes are circulating for Napoleon, but the author prefers this one in the article. The
other two times in circulation are 09.05 LMT and 09.50 LMT and Astro data bank gives 15 August 1769 at 11:30 (= 11:30 AM )
Place Ajaccio, Corsica, 41n46, 8e48 Timezone LMT m8e48 (is local mean time).
1
94
So if you look at the last picture, you see a great part of Europe computed for the horoscope
from Napoleon – born in Ajaccio, Corsica, France, 15th of august 1769 at 09.05 LMT. His
Ascendant is 08.03 degr. Libra. Closest to Ajaccio is his Venus/Mc line and you always have
to look to the closest line. That line has the greatest influence for good or for bad. As you
notice there is no line like a wave in Europe, which means that none of his planets would
2
95
have been on the Ascendant or Descendant in Europe. Only far away in previous Rushia he
has Uranus on the Descendant and Jupiter on the Ascendant.

It is possible that 2 astrocartografical lines meet each other, cross each other. These are
important points, cities or areas on the world and are called parans. It is the start of a line,
that because of the rotation of the earth forms a horizontal line around the earth, a paran. Of
course a paran always has to do with 2 planets on an angle and so also is a very important
line. Just combine the meaning of the 2 planets.

The lines from the benefic planets Venus and Jupiter are more auspicious than the lines of
malefics. But you also have to look in the specific chart to see whether they maybe rule or
are sitting in difficult houses like the 8th or 12th house. Also you can take just the meaning of
the planet – like Venus for love, comfort, friendship or the Sun for succes or developping
your identity etc. I also look in the chart whether the planet is strong or weak, in an angle or
a difficult house.

Let’s first have a look at Europe for Napoleon.


We’ve seen already that his Venus/Mc line is closest to Ajaccio and Paris and Venus is his
1st and 8th lord. Since we all know who he was and what he did in his life, I will only
mention the meaning of the lines within that context.
Napoleon went to Paris to follow military education and also studied old French and Latin
texts. In his horoscope Venus is on the Mc and the astrocartografical Venus/Mc line is the
closest to Paris. Besides the Venus/Mars paran is the closest to Paris. So we get a
combination of 1st house, 8th house, Mc and Mars. Napoleon himself is 1st house, 8th house
and Mars the military part and Mc his vocation. Within a few years he married (Mars lord
of the 7th) and got a high rank in the army. Do you see the Mc also working?
3
96
He started his 1st attack (Mars and 8th house)) to Italy as Commander in Chief (Mc and 1st
house) from Paris. Whereto? To Italy. Note that his Pluto line goes over Italy.

Now we have to relocate for the further story.


What’s that? Relocation?
Well, some astrologers keep looking at astrocartography from the birthplace and others
relocate. If an action is made from another place than the birthplace you can relocate the
chart to that new place and see how the lines are doing. Some say you work and live out of
the lines connected to your birthplace forever, others think you adopt the energy of a new
home or city or whatever you are living at a special time.
Just by intuition and no more than that I think one has to relocate.
Suppose you are born in Germany and move to New Zealand. That’s another world and you
have got to absorp the whole of New Zealand to feel home.
At least: that’s my opinion.
So: I relocate for important actions.
Let us look again to the chart for Napoleon. Seen from Paris.

In July 1798 he landed with his troops in Alexandria and shortly after that conquerred Egypt.
From Paris his Moon/Ic line runs over Egypt and the Moon is lord of his 10th house. His
Moon is weak in his chart. So: why did he conquer Egypt?
Time to look at transits.
In astrocartography you can also look to what the lines are doing in transit; it is not static
but dynamic, just like a horoscope.
The weak Moon as his 10th lord in his chart indicates he can expect trouble to have succes by
his action.
But what happened in transit?
See the chart below.
4
97
In July 1798 the Mercury/Mc and Sun/Mc were running over Egypt in transit.
His Mercury is quite strong in his 10th house and ruling the 9th. So – the Commander went to
this foreign country and succeeded. His Sun is in Leo – there is the Commander again,
sitting in the 11th and ruling the 11th. So he managed to command his army (kind of a team) in
the same direction and had succes.

It is not the intention of this article to describe all the important events in the life of
Napoleon. If you understand the essence, you can start playing around with horoscopes and
astrocartography. It is really fun! Also it can make you aware of influences in your life from
a different point of view!

Christine started with western astrology in 1992; she


followed the 4 years education with Karen Hamaker in
the Netherlands with success. In 1998 she started to
study classical astrology out of frustration, because she
was not satisfied by western astrology, especially the
relation with her parents. But - that also did not give
her the answers. So in 2000 she started to study Vedic
astrology and within a year she had the right answers.
This motivated her a lot to go on with Vedic astrology

Astrology. http://www.cirodiscepolo.it refund the cost of fuel and give him an
extra income of some Euros.
Now let me introduce a brand new
method; something that – to my
knowledge – nobody has ever tried before.
Nonetheless it is something that, being
99
pure mathematics, can be said to be self-proven.
Say that a David Smith wants to spend his Lunar Return in Milan, Italy, on the 21st of
1
January 2008 at 1:02 pm GMT. As you can see from the relevant chart , it is a very bad
Return. Say that David’s current SR is detrimental too, so that he wants to aim (i.e. relocate
according to the rules given in my books) this bad LR in order to avoid further risks for
himself. The ideal place for such relocation would be an isle in the very middle of the Ocean
between Senegal (on the West coast of Central Africa) and Brazil (to be more precise, the
North-East point of Brazil). This is one of the emptiest portions of this planet. If Our Lord
had been passionately fond of Aimed Solar Returns, he would have certainly filled up this
void with at least one island in the middle.
Alas, there’s no island in there. Yet, our brain often can be better than an island – so I made
up my mind and invented the method that I’m going to expose. In my opinion, it’s
something that has very solid theoretical basis and can be applied without spending 50,000
Euros for a taxi plane, but only 1,000 Euros on an airliner.
It consists of tracing the route of an airliner, say flying Lisbon to Recife, provided that you
know ALL the points touched by the route during the flight, and at what time you’ll be
flying over any of them.
It is not a ‘mission impossible’! I’m going to show you how, and after the following single
example, you’ll be able to do the same for any area of the world and apply it to any Aimed
SR and/or Aimed LR.
The most difficult point is getting the precise route of the flight. Forget about asking the
airlines: they aren’t going to tell you anything for security reasons because of the hazard
posed by terrorism.
My friend Pino Valente was smart enough to find out, on the Internet, the webpage of the
fans of flight simulation. As everybody knows, people like these can become really manic in
their wish to create a perfect simulation of flights; therefore they get to know whatever may
be needed to be known as far as routes are concerned. Also on ‘normal’ webpages devoted to
travels, like for example www.opodo.it, you can get to know the kind of aircraft, the
departure & arrival time, the time needed to reach there, and everything else that you need
for the purposes that I’m explaining to you.
Now this is the URL of the webpage for flight simulators:
http://rfinder.asalink.net/
It is necessary to subscribe and login; you’ll have access to this area:
http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/autoroute_rt.php
From www.opodo.it I got to know that there’s a flight TAP TP151 Lisbon to Recife leaving
Lisbon on the 21st January 2008 at 10:50; the flight takes 7 hours and 45 minutes. Hence you
can get, from the Route Finder webpage, the following table containing really all the
information that you need. We’ll consider only the second part of the table, listing all the
virtual points of the sky that are used by air traffic controllers to guide the aircrafts along
very narrow skyways: Nakos, Barok, Bentu, Nevel, Mitla…
In the following map we have traced all these virtual nodes of the sky and we have
connected them to form a line.

All charts at the end of this article

On Giovanna Bianco & Pino Valente’s website www.bianco-valente.com you can see their
work of 2005 titled Relational Domain – it’s a beautiful work of art resembling the world of
synapses, the connections between the sky and human mind, the air traffic controllers’
celestial nodes, the communication between our brain and the reality of universe…
Back to our scope. After drawing this line on the map you proceed as follows. You open the
astrological software that you use to calculate Solar returns and/or Lunar Returns. There
you add new ‘locations’ in its database, say: Nakos Radar, longitude 9°20’W and latitude
38°00’N, Barok Radar longitude 10°01’W and latitude 35°58’N and so on.
As you already know, the time zone is not required while casting SRs and LRs, so when
you’re asked to input the Time Zone, you can simply digit ‘1’.
Now consider the following four maps of ALR that I have cast to explain this method.
Compare them with the already given map of BLR of Milan, Italy – a very bad one. Having
added the additional locations to our software program, it is now able to cast a LR for Maroa.
Taken for granted that the map of SR and the map of LR must have the domification of the
place where the subject is there in that moment – neither the place of his birth nor the place
of his usual residence – nobody can deny that the result is striking. It isn’t important to
know what time will it be there in their local time, because our software calculates the GMT
of the LR and relocates the map of that moment on to Maroa. Those who still doubt about
this method, may cast the Aimed LR for Cape Verde (for example, Sale) and they can see
that the resulting map is almost identical to the map cast for Orabi Radar (in fact, the
geographic coordinates of the two locations are very close).
With the tables given here you can calculate anything. We know that the aircraft, an Airbus
A330-220, flying at an average cruise speed of 412 Mph (nautical miles per hour) takes 7 hours
and 45 minutes to fly the whole route Lisbon to Recife, corresponding to 3,196 nautical miles.
Knowing the distance between the single points of the line that we have traced on our map,
we can also know at what time we’ll be flying over each of those points.
The method’s only drawback is that the aircraft may take off later than the scheduled time,
but you can always recalculate the route by heart. In fact, consider our map with the dotted
line. Say that you had reckoned to be over Maroa for your Aimed LR. Now being late,
instead of flying over Maroa, you’ll be flying over Delax in the very moment in which the
LR takes place. An as you can see from the chart cast for Delax, it’s good anyway.
If you wish to get a safe calculation, you can apply larger margins of tolerance and reckon
that if the aircraft takes off with a delay of, say, less than 30 minutes, the pilots are able to
make up time by flying a little more than the usual cruise speed.
I believe that you have now a new tool, and a very feasible one, to achieve the goals that you
wish: moreover, spending no more than one hundred Euros instead of, say, fifty thousand
Euros.

exchange. In second and third places respectively, trading in New York accounted for 16.6%,
and Tokyo accounted for 6.0%. In addition to "traditional" turnover, $2.1 trillion was traded
in derivatives.

Of course, the main concept is that Forex is driven by planets! How it works?

Trend factor and Non-trend factor

What does it mean?

Trend factor. It means that some planets in their interactions creates trend – the moving of
price in certain direction.

How miditrend moves currency? Miditrend is the trend that lasts almost a year! It lasts too
long for a investor to think what decision he can make!

Miditrend - Several key rules.

Two planets effect

What does it mean? It means that one or several planets make different kind of aspects to
the important planets. At the same time it could be the negative aspects to one planet and
positive to another. It moves the currency price trend to the edge position or trend making
it’s high and low! In other words it’s called points of maximum and minimum of energy!
Something like that could be seen in spring when winter out and in autumn when winter in!
This is Chinese principle of Yin and Yang.

One of the most powerful elements is the interaction of Saturn and Jupiter with super
planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. It drives currencies ultimately! It’s very important - the
role of distant planets. They determine the way of trend for major currencies. It’s really hard
to say why, but it could be the result of their horoscopes activity. It doesn’t matter, it moves
and people are doing money. The main reason is the moving of major planets Jupiter and
Saturn.

107
Key planet principle

Every currency has its own significator, or planet influencing its currency. Every currency
has its own major planet, for example Neptune for USD and Pluto for GBP.

This is the principle of two. When Saturn and Jupiter interact with trans-Saturnian’s
planets, at the same time to be in the particular aspect with two planets, making stronger one
and weaker another. It depends on aspect. Trine creates rise of currency and opposition vice
versa.

I guess these principals are valid for major currencies. As example, I show you the survey
analyses of GBP\ USD.

Notable examples:

Have a look how GBP\USD moves under these factors.

GBP\USD

January 2000 – June 2001

What was the cause of strengthening of dollar? The cause was the trine between Saturn and
Jupiter in Gemini to Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius. Same time, Saturn and Jupiter were
in strong opposition with Pluto in Sagittarius! GBP\USD fell from 1.666 in January 2000 to
1.37 in June 2001! Significant change! By the way in minitrend it was perfect reflected. In
June 2001, when most planets were in opposition in the signs of Sagittarius and Gemini,
GBP\USD fell the deepest point. You could see it by yourself!

2002 – 2004

Why GBP rose? Because. Jupiter moved out from opposition with Pluto in 2002 and entered
to opposition with Neptune in 2002 – 2003. In 2002 GBP was 1.41 and in 2004 it rose to 1.95. It
was the weakening of dollar in opposition of Jupiter with Neptune and at the same time
strong trine with Pluto in Sagittarius.

Remember that strong position of one currency is the weakening of another!

Of course, some configurations had places on natal planets and moved transits too. It has to
be mentioned. But this fact is absolute!

108
2005

From the end of 2004, Jupiter moved in Libra and situation changed obviously! The USD
started to be stronger. The reason was trine of Jupiter and Neptune in air signs. Don’t forget
that these planets are considered as dollars planets. That’s why GBP\USD sharply changed
its direction downward from the end of 2004 1.93 – 1.72!

2006 - 2008

New rise of GBP\USD was in the period when Jupiter and Pluto were in conjunction. This
aspect is totally positive for them. GBP\USD peaked 2. 000. Almost record! It was caused by
additional strong position of Saturn to these two planets and its opposition to Neptune key
dollar planet in 2006 - 2007! It drove USD down! I hope you understand the concept! You
must determine the condition of one and another currency!

Second half of 2008

This period was the disaster for GBP. GBP\ USD fell from 2 to 1.35! Historical falling down.

Causes:

First reason was the weakening of the pound – Jupiter left the conjunction with Pluto. The
next reason was the strengthening of the dollar. Jupiter entered Aquarius and was in
conjunction with Neptune, the planet that make dollar stronger.

As you see, Pluto has a dominant position in this influencing on GBP\ USD as in minitrend
and miditrend too. Every currency has its own major planet, for example Neptune for USD
and Pluto for GBP. This is the principle of two. When Saturn and Jupiter interact with
trans-Saturnian planets, at the same time be in a particular aspect with two planets it makes
one currency stronger and another weaker.

Non-trend factor. This is the interaction of planets that don’t create the trend but drives the
price up and down when this factor occurs and becomes strong. Usually it lasts two or three
days! According to the astrological research of Forex, this factor depends on two or three
planets that make particular aspect with each other during the period when it lasts. For
example trine between Moon and Venus or Mars could drive the price in certain direction

109
while this aspect occurs and strong. Now, according to the astrological research of Forex, I
could tell that some non trend factors for USD\JPY drives it down in 40 occasions from 46
occurrences. Some non-trend factors for GBP\ USD, almost 100% factor, that drives it down
for last 2 years. EUR\USD is also driven down in 100% occasions, during strong non-trend
factor occurs in same certain period. USD\CHF has 80% occurrence when it is driven down.
All about this you can read in my lessons about “How to predict Forex”.

Of cause about 70% to 90% of the foreign exchange transactions are speculative. In other
words, the person or institution that bought or sold the currency has no plan to actually take
delivery of the currency in the end; rather, they were solely speculating on the movement of
that particular currency. Hedge funds have gained a reputation for aggressive currency
speculation since 1996. They control billions of dollars of equity and may borrow billions
more, and thus may overwhelm intervention by central banks to support almost any
currency, if the economic fundamentals are in the hedge funds' favor. That’s why this
subject of my course of how to predict Forex is too important to foresee what will be next
day!

Volantes” about the spiritual dimension of which directly and intuitively gives
eye floaters. insight to the essence or true nature of the
object perceived. Often this subtle or inner
sense is linked to the eye as a widespread
symbol of light, cognition and truth. It is
then addressed as the “inner eye”, “third
eye” or “eye of the heart”, common among
mystics who experienced the divine light.
In Indian mythology, for example, this
inner sense is expressed as God Shiva’s
frontal eye that gives him unifying vision.
Accordingly, tantric yogis try to open this
third eye by activating the “Ajna Chakra”,
located between the eyebrows. Likewise,
111
the Buddha Siddhartha Gautama received enlightenment through a “celestial eye”
(prajnacaksus) which permitted him to understand the forces of existence and their
manifestation in the chain of causality. The Greek philosophers spoke of an “Eye of the
Spirit” which has to be opened and purified to see the truth. While the Old Testament calls
the prophets “seers” and refers to an all-seeing eye or “Eye of Providence” that turns to
those who fear God and gives them superior insights or strength, the New Testament takes
up the Greek philosopher’s notion of the “Eye of the Soul or Heart”: the eye becomes the
object of purity (Matthew, 6.22), and the Eye of the Heart has to be opened in order to see
God (Acts 9.18). Over the centuries, Desert Fathers, Gnostics, and Mystics alike further
reported experiences of the inner sense as inner eye or eye of the heart or soul. Since the
early modern period, Western esoterics and scientists interested in unifying the scientific
and spiritual traditions are trying to find a physiological correspondence of this inner sense.
In recent years, for example, the inner sense was associated with the pineal gland, based on
scientific insights about the light sensitivity of this gland.

The Eye of Providence at the Aachen Cathedral, Germany.

The relation between perception, soul and pineal gland after René Descartes (1596-1650).

Meditation for the development of the inner sense

Developing our inner sense, therefore, is a way to improve our spiritual life. In fact, many of
us are doing this already, more or less consciously. For example, while meditating, many
have come to experience subjective visual appearances, ecstatic feelings or intuitive insights
– first aspects of an inner sense waking up. But if we want to develop that inner sense to its
full bloom, years and decades of constant exercise are necessary. In any case, awakening the

112
inner sense means choosing a meditation method which works directly with the inner sense
or with its objects and function. Generally, meditation can be carried out on material objects
which stimulate the inner sense; or on subtle objects which can be conceived of as objects of
this inner sense.

Material meditation objects

Material meditation objects are perceived through the eyes, not through the inner sense, but
concentrating on them can stimulate the inner sense and lead to subtle appearances.
Meditation on material objects should support the inner sense or third eye in its function to
mediate between the two brains or consciousness hemispheres. It should make aware to us
our right intuitive emotional side as well as our left analytical rational side, bringing them
into harmony with each other. This turns out best by means of squinting techniques which
have been developed likewise in Western and Eastern traditions. Two different types of
squinting must be distinguished here, though: the letting go of the eyes (parallel viewing) in
which the concentration point shifts behind the object looked at, and the concentrative
directing inside the eyes (cross viewing) in which the concentration point is drawn in front
of the object looked at, in the direction of the observer. To distinguish these two types, we
call the second type “doubling”. Doubling is the type of squinting ideal for meditation.

The simplest exercise of doubling is looking at the root of the nose, according to the way of
Indian yogis. However, doubling can also be applied to distant material objects.
Anthropologist and author Carlos Castaneda, for example, mentions a seeing technology
called “gazing” which at first means to focus the view on an object, similar to the yogi’s
cleaning exercise “trataka”. Sometimes, though, it is combined with squinting in which the
practitioner moves apart the two pictures and thus superimposes two equally formed objects.
The concentration on this superimposed object synchronizes the two consciousness
hemispheres and, regularly practiced, produces a depth perception which carries the
practitioner into other spheres of consciousness.
Another example of this form of meditation is the meditation on the “Tables of Chartres”.
The tables are three legendary geometric figures of equal surface area, made from red and
blue colored metal pieces shaped as rectangle, square, and circle. They are put down before
oneself in two rows of alternating color and shape and doubled until a superimposed third
table group appears in the middle. The knowledge around this old meditation type was
maintained and passed on by gypsies and published by the French author Pierre Derlon for
the first time.

The subtle objects: Subjective visual phenomena

Subtle meditation objects can be feelings and thoughts. For developing the inner sense,
however, those objects are particularly well suited which appear through the fusion of the
inner sense and the visual sense. I’m referring to those subjective visual phenomena which
are known in ophthalmology as “entoptic phenomena”. Entoptics are phenomena which are
believed by the observer to be seen outside of him- or herself, though, physiologically
explained; they are generated by the observer’s visual system. The following entoptic
phenomena are suited as meditation objects for most people:

Afterimages: contrasting colored afterimages may be explained as the continuation of the


effect of a visual stimulus when this stimulus has gone already. For example, blinking into
the sun for a short time period will produce the colored afterimage of the sun in our visual
field.
Meditation on afterimages includes producing these images by shortly glancing into a light
source, e.g. a bulb or a candle flame. Against a dark background or with the eyes shut, we
observe these colored luminous spots until they lose their intensity. Again, we generate
another afterimage and observe it until it fades and so on. Observing the afterimage, we
actively move it with our view and watch it change its form and intensity; we study its
proper motion and the influence of our eye movements on its luminosity.

Phosphenes: Phosphenes are colored spots and blurs in the dark, often seen with eyes closed.
They are said to be discharges of visual neurons. Meditation on phosphenes works similar
like meditation on afterimages. However, it is more difficult because it has to be done
without the stimulating effect of an external light source. We close the eyes and watch the
colored spots taking shape in the dark. They tend to disappear from our awareness and
therefore have to be made aware again and again by realigning our attention. An elaborated
system of consciousness development focusing on afterimages and phosphenes was created
by the French scientist and inventor, Dr. Francis Lefebure; the exercises of his
“Phosphenism” combine visual concentration on afterimages with (neuro) physiological
rhythmics.

Eye Floaters (mouches volantes): Eye floaters are scattered semi-transparent dots and
strands appearing with bright light conditions in our visual fields and following the eyes’
motions. In ophthalmology, they are regarded as a normal opacity of the vitreous due
to progressing age. Eye floaters meditation means that we bring these the objects into our
field of vision and consciously look at them. We explore them, get to know their forms,
constellations, and movements. We notice that the floaters constantly drift away, mainly
down, and try to keep them in the field of vision. More advanced meditators of eye floaters
will begin to see changes in movement, size and luminosity. The teaching of my mentor,
seer Nestor, provides elaborated seeing and ecstasy techniques to work with eye floaters, as
well as a spiritual interpretation of these dots and strands.

114
Eye floaters: Mobile transparent dots and strands in the field of vision.

Blue field entoptic phenomenon: this formal term refers to “flying corpuscles” or “luminous
spots”, tiny luminous spheres moving fast along in wound tracks. It is best seen in the blue
sky (therefore: blue field entoptic phenomenon), but can become very strong in situations
with extreme physical challenges like shocks or blackouts. From a medical point of view, it’s
related to white blood cells flowing in the capillaries of the retina.
Unlike the other entoptics, the luminous spots can’t be fixed with the eyes directly but are
seen in the peripheral field of vision. Observing luminous spots, therefore, improves our
alertness in the whole visual field, rather than our ability to concentrate on particular
objects.
Dr. Wilhelm Reich, the Austrian-American psychiatrist and founder of the orgon theory,
explained the blue field entoptic phenomenon as a kind of orgon radiation. More spiritually
oriented followers of Reich suggest to concentrate on these immaterial luminous spots, in
order to silence the inner dialogue and find inner peace.

By consciously looking at entoptic phenomena like the above mentioned we withdraw our
five senses from the material sense objects and channel the energy usually needed to
maintain their functioning to the inner sense. This way, we awaken the inner sense, which
in turn will help us recognize and feel immediately and with great intensity the higher
significance of these dots, spots and strands as well as their relation to ourselves. We then
intuitively understand why such entoptics were watched by people of all times, often
provided with religious meanings and used as concentration objects.

Discover The Child
Within
By
Holly Hall, Canada

E very single one of us are children. In


our physical form one life after the
other, we are born, we age and
eventually we will leave our physical form.
As a spirit and as a soul, you are an eternal
child, pure, perfect and alive. Children take
on many forms, many characteristics, and
with this many strengths. How can you
find out where that child is in your
astrological chart? In other words where are
you? And why is it important for you to
acknowledge the child with in?

First of all, society informs us, media

Spirit Quest Radio or at our creativity, we forget about our
hollyhall@spiritquestradio.com playgrounds, we loose the child within.
Does this mean that we need to grow up
and only play and never work and never
provide for ourselves? Absolutely not! If
you remain the child that you are, and keep
in touch with that creative side, then you
can bring this to the world, and yes, you can
make a lot of money doing what you enjoy!
So dare we digress? Yes. In the rest of this
article I will show you how to find that
118
child with in. And when you do, get back the child' within, never let him/her go.

T he first thing that you want to do is look at your Moon sign. Your moon sign
represents the child within; your moon sign represents your past life. You will also want
to look at your fifth house, what is on the cusp of the fifth house, is it intercepted,
are any planets in the fifth house.
For instance, Karri has her moon in Aries, all of her other planets are in Leo in the
fifth house. Now this makes for an extremely creative little Karri. Karri is 20 years old. Karri
is extremely artistic. A graduate of high school, when she was an A average, in art class, in
creative English and in music. She loves photography and fashion. However Karri is also a
Virgo, her Sun sign is in Virgo in the sixth house. At the age of 18, all Karri wanted to do
was to stay in her playground. Virgo influence in the sixth house and the insistence of her
realistic mother and get serious stepfather was pushing Karri to teach her to be an adult, to
be serious and to serve society, as we all must do. All her Leo and her Aries Moon didn't
think that this sounded like a lot of fun, so she became resistant to change showing signs of
laziness, and is in the process of losing her child with in.
An earth influence in our chart such as Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, second, sixth,
and the tenth house, can be our worst enemy. This weighted down, earth bound, realistic,
pull up your bootstraps and get the job done; influence can hinder the playfulness of the
child within. So does that mean that earth influence charts, can never hang on to their inner
child? Absolutely not! Karris’ new playground may be the materialistic world. All that Leo,
creates ego, and may need to ‘lead’ to stay creative. Her Aries moon would do well to help
others fight for their independence. Her new Virgo “skin” would do well in serving others in
this way. Instead of quitting jobs that hinder her, she could rally all employees to fight for
their rights. To speak their minds. However Leo can be very romantic and idealistic,
thinking the grass is always greener on the other side. “Your playground is more fun than
mine”. Searching for the perfect playground, can wastes playful time. Karri may have to
learn from experience.

It may be creating abundance, financial abundance, to share, and create your own
playground. It may be mother Earth creating wood carving, working with clay, landscaping,
cooking, nurturing others, or helping to organize others in order for them to make the most
of their playground. The law of the planetary influences right now are greatly affecting the
ability for many to retain their Creative in inner child. And I will touch on this at the end of
this article.

The signs and the house is where one looks. These signs carrying the inner child with
them every single day of their lives: Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Sagittarius, Pisces: first
house, third house, fifth house, and ninth house. Does that mean that the rest of us will lose
their child within throughout their lives? Absolutely not! But you will need reminding, you
will need to continually re-introduce yourself and nurture your inner child. And how exactly
do you do this? Below I will list how with each sign/house.

Instructions
1. Look up your Moon sign, your Sun sign and your fifth house cusp sign.
2. Take a piece of paper a bright colored fun piece of paper and a pen or pencil,
children love pencils and write down, with no form, everything related to your Moon
your Sun and your fifth house sign.
3. If you have any of the signs mentioned above in your charts write it down as well.
119
4. If you have any planets in any of the houses mentioned above write this out.
5. After you have written all of this down, read this out loud to yourself while looking
in a mirror.
6. Also make him write colored sticky notes and write down the affirmation I will list
at the end of this article.

A RIES - Always find an adventure, something new, something that is competitive


and one that will give you a sense of newness. The Aries and child with in, is not a
patient soul, therefore do not expect yourself to see a new project to the end. This is
for your more earth bound brothers and sisters. You are the motivator, you are the fuel for
the fire, you are the spark that ignites others. So make sure that whatever creativity you
bring into your life that you can finish the project shortly after you have started. For
example, if you are a project manager or self-employed or even a mother of four kids, get
people around you motivated, fire them up get them started. And hire a Taurus, Virgo or a
Capricorn to finish the job. Seriously, and then start another project, another adventure. You
are a warrior, you’re playground is your battleground. Your territory. The challenge is to
choose your battles carefully. Your creativity comes into play in how you can create a
win/win situation, where no one loses.

T AURUS - Engage with mother Earth, stay Grounded. Learn to cook, garden,
working with wood, metals, gems, anything of the material. And of course working
with money be it yours or somebody else's. The key is not to be so tied to the
material that you feel unsafe without it. If this does happen you may take a long walk in the
woods or/and go hug a tree. This will sound silly. That’s the point be silly. Allow yourself
to play in the sandbox! Basically Taureans need to get their hands dirty. You need to be
creative. As long as everything is done through the heart and not the mind, as you are ruled
by Venus you will fare well. You love your comfort food it feeds your soul. Make sure you
eat healthy!

G EMINI - The eternal child, you are a thinker you are a communicator and you
enjoy learning. Working well with your hands you may want to be creative and
inventive with machinery, cars and such. However you can tend to have a short
attention span and it's very important that you read material that is short and sweet. Such as
blogs, magazines, newspapers and gossip columns. You love gossip and you love to be in the
know. You also work very well with your hands so if you can strum a guitar or play the
piano, this will soothe your soul. If you can have a job where you learn and then share that
knowledge as well. You could be a teacher of any sorts, in your own playground. Just be
careful not to share knowledge or gossip that has not been completely researched. You make
great journalists and radio show hosts. But in the meantime talk talk talk, chat chat chat, and
have fun.

C
ANCER - Your playground is a place where you can enjoy your, sensitive, helpful
and domestic side. You enjoy anything that you can do within your home
environment. So your first playground is in your home. Make sure that your home
is full of the comforts and cosiness that you require. So when you're all grown up it is
important you decorate your home. You love collecting and a bit of a packrat, in order to
keep your self and those who live with sane you may want to incorporate shelves in the
form of furniture or the walls in order to display your collection. You also really enjoy
children so if you can involve your self with working in nurturing children you're happy.
120
L EO - As long as you are center stage then you have your playground. You are
dramatic idealistic, creative, romantic and very optimistic. So if you're in a position
where you can share this optimism, and entertain others. Not only have you created
your own playground of your own, you also have your own playmates in the form of an
audience, friends and/or coworkers. Some Leos do not work well under authority. So you
may find that you're playground/career may be self-employment and it must be something
that you are proud of. Most Leo's never forget the childhood; often they feel they have to
hide this, as the world seems too serious for them. So it is very important that you allow the
child to play.

V IRGO - Okay this may actually take some organization and planning, doesn't seem
much fun does it? Virgos are very very serious in fact one might wonder if they are
even a child when they were a child. In their younger years many would consider
them to be very mature and reliable. So you may have to slot out an hour a day to play.
Believe it or not, if you can relax, you will be most satisfied at a great job of helping other
people organize or analyze. You are fact-finding and enjoy a dissecting to find out what
makes something work. So you enjoy science, mechanics, humanitarian, cleaning and fact-
finding career. So don't forget to make time in your schedule to play and be a child.

L IBRA - You are very intellectual and your mind is always busy. You may think that
pleasing people is your happiness; what makes other people happy is what makes you
happy. But this is not always the case. As it drains you, causing a nervousness that
can be quite debilitating. So you really need to learn how to play. You are very sociable and
extremely artistic, a group, clubs, or classes where you can explore your different artistic
abilities will bring out the child within. Shopping can bring out the child within as well; just
make sure you have the money first. You'd make a very good secret shopper, its right up
your alley, make money and shop for free! Remember don't just buy art make it.

S CORPIO - You actually may find it fun and intriguing and penetrate the minds and
the psyche of others in order to find out what motivates them. However you're sure to
find you may play alone in your playground, and that's no fun. So I think that you
either take up reading spy, murder and mystery books. Collect these types of movies. And if
you really want to have fun try writing one of your own. You are also very psychic and
intuitive. So get involved with groups where you can meditate and exchange psychic
knowledge. Have fun investigating, penetrating, your own inner motives can also be
enjoyable as long as you don't take it so seriously.

S
AGITTARIUS - If you were to be the inner child that you want to be, then be a
teenager. Because you love to learn, you love sarcastic humour, you are freedom
loving and athletic. You can also be a scholar. However, as much as you like to learn,
you also like to party. So outside of your work and your responsibilities, do some educating
and learning just for fun something that opens your mind and broadens your philosophies of
life. Traveling is also very enjoyable for you as long as it's a learning experience where you
can engage in different cultures. Even watching the travel Channel can bring out the
playfulness in you.

121
C APRICORN - Much like your Virgo sister you can be so cautious and so
responsible, that your practical nature literally suffocates the child within. So you
may have to schedule and organize a time every day. Make it in a place where there
is nothing reminding you of your schedule, your responsibilities you have and how much
work is still yet to be done. So go into your woodworking shop and build a bench without
instructions. But organize a trip with children, cousins and nieces or nephews or your own
children where all you do is play.

A QUARIUS - Your central nervous system is continuously taxed as the child within
struggles nervously to get out and play. Often your child within likes to play on
their own, with their independent, individualistic, intellectual side. The challenge
may be finding that alone time. Even if you have to lock the bathroom door and take a 45
minute bath, do it! And on the flipside Aquarians can also be very social, so plan a party, go
to a party or a social event. And I may have to remind you on a regular basis. Be different,
explore your unique side.

P ISCES - very much like your Gemini and Sagittarius cousins, I think cousins because
Gemini Sagittarius and Pisces are actually very different but related. Because you
know how to play if only the world would let you. You often take on the world's
woes in your conduit for healing. So you need time to re charge your batteries, often. So get
out your rubber ducky in your pink Mr. Bubbles fill up that I can't take Jacuzzi bath, light
the candles, the music and a good sappy novel and you're good to go. Just make sure you're
left alone for a good hour to you that’s fun! And if you can make a weekly trip to any
waterfront or a yearly trip somewhere near the ocean you're in heaven Water is your
playground.

The world is your playground, nurture it and it will nurture you.

Planetary Update - Saturn is in Virgo opposing Uranus in Pisces. This influences the whole
world to get serious and yet want freedom. From constraints and rules, by government,
bosses, employees, health care system etc.

How To Beat Time
By
John Frawley, Poland
John Frawley is the editor of The Astrologer's Apprentice magazine,
and tutor of the Apprenticeship Courses in Horary, Electional and
Traditional Natal Astrology. John's first book, The Real Astrology,
was awarded the Spica Award for International Astrology Book of
the Year in 2001. His follow up book, Real Astrology Applied, Sports
Astrology & The Horary Textbook are now available. For details of
John's work, publications, appearances and courses, visit his
website at http://www.johnfrawley.com.

A client entered the workshop one day, gorgeously arrayed and carrying a plump
chicken for payment. "What I would like to know," he asked, as I sat him down in
our consulting room, "is, will I die?"

I had barely finished rubbing my hands together with glee in order to set the chart when, to
my disappointment, I woke up. For it is ever the reality of horary that clients want not just
predictions, but timed predictions. There, alas, is the rub.

Finding the event itself is usually the easy bit; the timing is more difficult, as a close reading
of William Lilly makes plain. We see him over and again fumbling towards a plausible
answer, with the aid either of inside information or a querent sat before him so suggestions
can be bounced back and forth until a feasible result is hammered out. The spectacular
answer, where the timing announces itself in trumpet tones of indisputable clarity, does
occur; but more often than not, the exact timing of a specific event in horary is hedged
around with cautions and probabilities.

This is both salutary and inevitable. On the one hand it keeps the burgeoning egos of
journeyman astrologers in check; on the other, as when we look at time we are looking at the
very stuff of which our astrology is made - looking, as it were, not so much at the face of the
clock, where the events that mark time are displayed, but into the workings of the clock
itself - the fathoming of time is bound to be harder than the mere tracking of events.

The conclusions about the nature of time to which the practice of an accurate, verifiable
astrology directs us are not the least of the benefits of directing our attention to the celestial
science. Two key works to which I might direct the curious reader are 'Plato's Myth of Er',
at the end of his Republic, and Iain Mackenzie's The Anachronism of Time (Norwich, 1994),
which is hard work, but which, with a tight logic, clarifies the concepts with which we must
work. But we direct our attention here away from our prison bars to the more immediately
practical purpose of finding the answer in the chart.

124
Method

We will assume that we have set our horary and judged that there will be an event. This will
usually have been shown by an aspect between two planets; occasionally by a planet moving
to a cusp, or even, rarely, vice versa. Planet to cusp aspects, however, are not to be relied upon
to show an event unless the planet signifying the quesited is applying to the querent's cusp.
The querent's planet applying to the cusp of the quesited, whatever Lilly may say to the
contrary, tends to show desire rather than fulfillment and is not reliable - except when the
event is more or less certain. That is, 'Will I get the job?' with Lord of the first applying to
the MC: desire; 'When will I get the job?' with Lord of MC applying to the 1st: certainty.

The best behaved of charts show a timeable past event. These are not so common, but are
delightedly received whenever they arrive. Suppose the question is 'When will I marry
again?' and we know that our querent divorced three years ago. The chart shows her
significator separating from Mars, the natural ruler of divorce. If it is y degrees separated
from Mars, we know that y = 3 years. So if it now applies to aspect the ruler of the seventh
house, signifying the future husband, in 2y degrees, judgment is simple: you will remarry in
2 x 3 = 6 years. It is as if the chart carries its own scale of calibration, as we might find the
scale marked on a map. Conclusions we reach from this are highly accurate and highly
reliable.

Few, however, are the charts that show such past events. Or, as in principle I suppose that
they all should, few are they that show them with sufficient clarity to be of use. So we need
to find something else - and this is when it starts to get complicated. For reasons which
cannot be fathomed, students invariably display the utmost resistance to absorbing what
follows, more than on any other subject. We would suggest, then, that those who wish to
work with these ideas print out this page and forcefully insert it into their head through the
left ear with the aid of a screwdriver.

We will assume that our chart shows an applying aspect. If it does not, we have no event, so
there is no point in trying to time it. If we have an aspect there will be a number of degrees
between where the planets are now and where they will be when the aspect perfects. This
number is the number of time units between the time of question and the time of the event.
Getting this is the easy bit! But even this is not so simple: usually we take the number of
degrees that the applying planet must travel before perfecting the aspect. So we look at the
degree at which the aspect happens, following the astronomical truth that the planet applied
to is not going to stand and wait while the other catches it up. Sometimes, however, we take
the number of degrees from where our applying planet is now to where the planet applied to
is now - as if the other planet were standing still and waiting. What we have here is in effect
not an aspect, but a transit.

Example:

Let us say that our event is shown by Mercury applying to aspect Mars, and Mercury is now
at 8 deg of its sign, Mars at 12 deg of its. From looking at the ephemeris we see that aspect
perfects when they are both at 16 degrees of their signs. Mercury has had to travel 8 degrees
to perfect the aspect, so our judgment will be that the event will happen in 8 somethings:

125
days, weeks, months, years, whatever. But sometimes we will assume that Mars stands still
and take only the distance between the planets' present positions, giving us just 4 degrees
and so 4 days, weeks, months, etc.

So how do I know when to go for the true aspect and when to go for the transit? I don't
know. I have not found any reliable guidelines in either the texts or in practice. I would
suggest that the only guide is that in many cases one answer will make sense within the
context of the question, while the other will not. I suggest that this is what we see Lilly
doing in various of his judgments - bouncing possibilities off the client, or off his own
knowledge of the realities of the situation.

Suppose we ask 'When will the King be executed?' and find that the transit-type judgment
gives us 3 days and the perfection-type gives us 6. We might know that the trial has yet to
finish, and when it does it will take time to build the scaffold and organize the hot-dog
concessions. 6 days would make better sense.

The golden rule in all matters of timing, as in all else in astrology, is that we do not have to
be perfect. We are allowed to judge, "It might be in three days; but weighing all the evidence
I think it more likely to be in six."

We have a piece of music; we must allow ourselves to play. We can swing it or we can play
it straight: we are still playing. The one vital point is that we learn our scales, else we cannot
play at all.

So: we have our number of time units; we now need to work out which is the appropriate
unit. Lilly brings nothing but confusion here. First, he gives two contradictory scales of
timing; second, he pins both to fixed units. The suggestion that, for instance, angular houses
= years is most unhelpful. Suppose our question is "When will my boyfriend phone?"; 'years'
is not a relevant concept. So put Lilly away and listen up.

Any question carries its own time-frame, which will have a short, a medium and a long
possibility. For the love-struck teenager demanding 'When will my boyfriend phone?'
minutes as short, hours as medium and days as long might be the options. For the older
querent asking 'When will I meet Mr. Right?' years must be the longest option, giving
months as medium and weeks as short. The three units will follow one from the other: we
do not have minutes, months and years.

"Yes, but this assumed time-frame limits the possibilities of what the chart can tell us." No, it
doesn't. We can have perfection in less than one degree, so our decision that years, months
or weeks is the reasonable range of choice for 'When will I meet Mr. Right?' does not clip
Cupid's wings. A perfection at less than one degree on our fastest option could still give us
'This afternoon!'
To decide which of our time units we shall choose, we consider the sign and the house in
which our applying planet stands. Ignore the sign and house in which the planet applied to
stands. No, I know you weren't listening: ignore the sign and house in which the planet
applied to stands. Even if you like the look of them, ignore them!

126
Within our reasonable time-frame for the question, fixed signs will give the longest time-
unit, cardinal the shortest and mutable the middle one. That is the easy bit. The
complication comes when we introduce the houses, as there is an in-built contradiction. Of
their nature, angular houses equate with fixed signs and so indicate the slowest time unit.
Cadent - as might be expected from a house that is literally 'falling' - gives the fastest;
succedent the middle. Combining house and sign will give us, for instance, long + long,
which must indicate our longest unit. Or short + short, which is our shortest. Any other
combination will give our middle unit.

"But that's not fair, ref!" Yes, the system is heavily weighted in favour of the middle unit.
This probably says something about the nature of things; but if the chart wishes to show us
the fastest or the slowest it is quite capable of so doing.

Now for the contradiction: angular houses of their nature are slow. But a planet in an
angular house has a good deal of accidental dignity. Accidental dignity increases the planet's
power to act. If that planet wants to act, then, it is well able to do so, and is likely to act
quickly. So angular houses are fast.

The key is the word 'wants': the issue of volition. If things are unfolding of their nature,
whatever is in an angular house will unfold slowly. If whatever or whomever the angular
planet signifies is, within the context of the question, in a position to act, and if (and only if)
the receptions indicate that it wants to act, it will act quickly. This inherent (apparent)
contradiction is the reason for Lilly giving two apparently contradictory tables.

Example: I ask 'When will the cheque arrive?' and find the significator of the cheque in an
angular house. There is nothing the cheque can do to expedite its own arrival. The angular
house would suggest a slow time unit. On the other hand, when Asian women ask the
question 'When will I meet the man I will marry?' it is common to find their significators in
angular houses. Once they have taken the decision that it is time to marry, there is a good
deal that they can do to expedite the process, in contrast to Bridget Jones, who can only wait
until Cupid squeezes himself into her life. If these angular significators provide us with an
applying aspect, and if (as the fact that she is paying to ask the question would lead us to
expect) their receptions show that she wants the match, we can take this angularity as
showing a fast unit, because she has power and wishes to use it.

Similarly, if a would-be Napoleon were to ask 'When will I conquer the world?' and we were
to find his significators in cadent houses, even given an applying aspect we would have to
assign a slow time-unit, because he has little power to act.

Confused yet? If not, you probably haven't been paying attention. Let us throw a few more
ingredients into the stew. What we have so far is the number of degrees needed to perfect an
aspect giving us the number of time units, and the sign/house combination of the applying
planet telling us which time units they are. In a good proportion of charts this will work. I
would suggest using this unless common sense tells that the answer it provides is wrong.

In some charts, we consider only the sign of the applying planet, not its house. Which
charts? The charts where we consider only the sign of the applying planet, not its house. I

127
would like to be able to quote a rule, but have never found one. They just look like 'sign-only
charts'. Given enough practice, you will develop an eye for them. It may be that a
preponderance of them have the planet in a fixed sign, but as with Lilly's empirical 'rules',
this suggestion should be treated with caution.

The number of time units, as shown by the number of degrees, is subject to change. If the
applying planet is moving significantly faster or slower than its usual speed, it will take a
greater or lesser time to cover the same number of degrees. We can, if we wish, adjust the
number. I have timed predictions with an unnecessary degree of accuracy by carefully
calculating the exact proportion by which the planet is faster or slower; but while such
displays of virtuosity make an amusing party trick there is little point to them. 'A bit' is
quite accurate enough an adjustment.

NB. the speed of the applying planet will - if we are sufficiently Virgoan to factor it in - affect only
the number of time units. It will not affect our choice of time unit. Please, gentle reader, write this out
500 times to make sure it is instilled into your head.

Double-bodied signs make things slower. Our psychologically inclined brethren will tell us
that this is because they are far too busy talking, worrying, or going down the pub to bother
acting. This too will affect only the number of time units, not their nature.

In practice, it is not usually necessary to consider these factors, work though they do.
Striving to tell our client that she will meet Mr. Right at 3 minutes past 10 on Monday 28th
serves only our ego. 'Around the end of the month' is all the accuracy required.

If the aspect is to a retrograde planet, so that both planets are applying to perfection, the
event can happen faster than the number of degrees would suggest. How much faster?
Usually 'a bit'. In such cases it is probably best to use the number of degrees to give an outer
limit of time, qualified by 'probably sooner'.

If the chart that shows two aspects indicating that the event will happen, these aspects will
usually - as we might expect - show the same time. 'Close enough' is good enough. If one, for
instance, shows 12 units and the other shows 3, a correlation of 12 weeks = 3 months is
sufficiently close to add confidence to our prediction. We could, in principle, expect them to
be exactly congruent; but such an expectation ignores our place in the cosmos. We are aware
that nor progressions nor transits to the nativity manifest exactly as they happen; so with
degrees of precision in horary. If the planets send us an angel, it takes a while for him to find
us amid the fogs of this world of generation and corruption. Our gross coporeity resists the
instant response that the chart might suggest.

When judging horaries, we do best to disregard what we might think is real time. It is a
common failing among students, no matter how hard they are beaten, to cling to the idea
that if the ephemeris shows that the aspect will happen next Tuesday, the event shown by
that aspect will happen next Tuesday. No it won't! What the ephemeris shows us is time
from our perception, which is an illusion; what the planets show us is as close an
approximation as we may easily get to time as is. 'Next Tuesday' is rarely a correct response
to "When will I meet Mr. Right?"

128
When ephemeris time does become relevant is when our questions are on general
indications over long periods of time, or when we wish to look beyond the immediate limits
imposed by the question to see what may happen over a longer period. This is often to
reassure the querent that all is not lost.

Examples:

Suppose the question is "Can you give some general indications for my business over the
next few months?" and we find that the querent's business is signified by Jupiter, which will
enter its own sign in three months' time. We might judge that things will start looking up
around then. Experience is that the querent will usually respond, "Oh yes - that's
immediately after the big trade show", or some such, and that such indications will prove
accurate.

Or, suppose the question were "Is this really the man of my dreams?" and the chart gave an
obvious judgment of "Are you insane?" We might look further, noting that in a couple of
months the querent's significator moved out of its detriment and into some interesting
mutual receptions, and so add "But by the Autumn you'll be feeling much better in yourself,
and so be able to enter a relationship that nurtures you, rather than scraping the barrel of
humanity out of sheer desperation, as you are doing now". Or words to that effect.

When considering the longer term, a planet's passage through an entire sign shows one of
the natural time-units, usually a month or a year. So if, for instance, the querent's business
were signified by Venus, placed now at 28 Leo, in a question about long-term prospects, we
might judge (other testimonies concurring), "You may feel you have the world at your feet
just now (Venus on Regulus), but you are entering a sticky period (into Virgo). The next
year (passage through Virgo) looks set to be a story of considerable potentials (Venus in
triplicity) never quite unfolding (Venus in fall). Overall, the downside during this period is
going to be significantly more than the up; but after that (Venus into Libra) all falls happily
into place. So grit your teeth and hang on in till then." It is foolishness to look beyond the
next sign or two, as if we do we find everything happening to everybody. And this looking
ahead does need to be done sparingly: students show an enthusiasm for racing planets
around the chart as if it were a Snakes and Ladders board; such enthusiasm is better curbed.
For the most part, we are concerned only with a planet's next aspect and nothing beyond
that.

Lilly gives several examples where a 'real time' transit is significant. So if Mercury applies to
Jupiter he is judging not "It's four degrees till perfection; it will happen in four weeks", but
"My ephemeris shows this aspect happening next Tuesday at 3.56; it will happen then". Our
advice to the student must be, "Don't try this at home!" Please.

We suggest that, if you really must dabble in this kind of thing, it is best kept to side issues.
Example: we have decided that boy, our querent, will marry girl in six months' time, judging
by the six degrees needed to perfect the aspect between them. We note that both planets are
in major dignities of the ruler of her fourth house, showing that her father has a major say in
this matter. We note also that at 11.52 on Friday 28th, boy's planet transits the twelfth cusp,
there being a mutual reception between the ruler of the twelfth and the significator of the

129
girl's father. The twelfth being the house of animals larger than goats, we advise that at 11.52
on the 28th he attends the market, where he will be able to purchase the very camel that will
swing the father's opinion in his favour.

On the subject of transits, let us deal with the idea that if something in the horary chart
conjuncts something in the querent's nativity, the chart is 'radical' (whatever that may
mean). I ask a question about love, and find in the horary that Venus is right on my natal
Ascendant. Does this make the chart radical? Of course not. It shows that Venus is
transiting my Ascendant, and I, surprisingly enough, am thinking about love. No more than
that. Let us not forget that this with which we deal is a congruent system: it all fits together,
in the most intricate and endlessly remarkable of ways. That Venus is on my Ascendant
may show that I am thinking about love - a fact that might be obvious from my going to an
astrologer and asking him 'Does she love me?' - but it tells us nothing about whether this
love is reciprocated. Such considerations serve only to confuse the issue. All charts are
'radical', and we are well advised to keep the querent's nativity well apart from his horaries,
lest they breed monsters.

A particular instance in which the 'real time' movement of the planets can be significant
occurs in lost object questions. In the chart for such it will often be found that the
significator of the object is combust: it cannot be seen. Assuming that all else in the chart is
indicative of a recovery, we can reach down our ephemeris, note the exact moment at which
the planet leaves combustion, and judge, "You'll find it then". This may present the odd
picture of thousands of people around the world throwing up their hands in glee as they
recover cherished possessions at exactly 8.22 GMT, but it seems to work with the reasonable
degree of reliability that is all we ask.

When a date is specifically mentioned in the


question, it is often of great significance, so it
is always worth checking the planetary
placements on that date against the horary
chart. As a general rule, if we restrict the
querent to few words, whatever those few
words are will usually be important; if those
few words relate to timing, let us look at
them.

This querent was desperate for her son to be


accepted into a school - a prospect that was
looking increasingly unlikely. Her ambitions
to place him in a private school had excluded
him from the acceptable state school options,
while he had been turned down from the
private school she wanted, for reasons which
she believed were unsound. The boy had an
entrance exam at another school, and an
appeal at the school desired, both on named
dates. How would he fare?

130
His significator is the ruler of the fifth house, Jupiter. The schools are shown by the ninth
and its ruler, the Moon. The first exam was on the 18th of May. By transit, the Moon, Lord
9, was on the 5th cusp on that day. This is a positive testimony, but there was no mutual
reception with Lord 5. At this school the boy passed satisfactorily, but with no scholarship.
The appeal at the second school was due on August 10th. On that day, the boy's significator,
Jupiter, transits the ninth cusp, where, it being in Cancer, it is exalted - so the boy is there
and is highly thought of. Would he get the scholarship? Yes. And so it proved.

Similarly, if the question contains a given bound of time, this too will be reflected in the
chart. It can be taken that the end of the relevant planet's present sign is the end of the given
time-frame. So if I ask, "Will I win the lottery this year?" and find my significator
conjuncting the ruler of the eleventh house (pennies from Heaven) immediately after it
leaves its present sign, I would judge, "No; but I will early next".

Robert Nunn has recently emerged from the grueling series of tests and tortures that
comprise The Horary Apprenticeship as a fully fledged Horary Craftsman. While indulging
in that favourite astrological recreation of bumping off members of the royal family - an
amusement which would have William Lilly's whole-hearted approval - he asked "Will the
Queen Mother live to see her 100th birthday?"

With a woman of this age we must be aware


that she is bound to die at some point; so we
need to look at the birthday. His reasoning
was: the Queen is given to the 10th house, so
the Queen Mother is given to the 10th from
the 10th, the radical 7th, and so signified by
Venus. The Moon is translating light from
Venus (Queen Mum) to the Sun (her
birthday). Will it get there in time - before the
Sun changes sign? Yes, it does; so the Queen
Mother gets to see her hundredth birthday -
and so, of course, it proved.

Finally, as a little light relief, there are the


questions that admit of only one possible time
unit. Yippee! Let us dance and rejoice!

Margaret Cahill, an Apprentice on the point of


qualification as a Horary Craftsman, asked at
what time a certain employee with a watch purchased from Salvador Dali might arrive at
work that day. As she judged - in a chart submitted before the event - the employee was
signified by Saturn, ruler of the sixth house; the querent herself by Mercury (Lord 1) and the
Moon.

131
The Moon applies to aspect Saturn in four
and a half degrees. Which planet applies to
which is irrelevant: that the querent's co-
significator applies to that of her employee
does not mean that she will have to go to
the employee's house to drag her out of bed;
that the planets come into contact is
sufficient, within the assumptions of the
question.

The Moon needs four and a half degrees to


perfect the aspect with Saturn, so the
timing must be four and a half somethings.
Minutes were not an option, as the question
was asked at 7 am and the business did not
open till 9. Days were not an option, as the
assumption of the question was 'at what
time today?' As with our example of the
repairman in The Real Astrology, the chart
can show that the person will not arrive at all; but as we have an aspect our only option must
be hours. She will arrive in four and a half hours - and so it proved.

A Game of Chance

Lisa J. Gordon, U.K

A s an Astrologer I
constantly on the horns of a
dilemma: my clients wanted
definitive black and white answers
was

about their futures and yet what I had


learned in Astrology, was that we have
freewill and that the planets are only a
guide.
Astrology should, in my eyes be

awareness; however many of my clients
wanted to use Astrology as the

who has been a regular guest on BBC local Right; keep in this lane for the next

entirely. It made me think deeply about
and her novel ‘A Sealed Fate’ (which
exactly how much control we do have
examines this very same issue) will be over our lives by virtue of freewill and
published this autumn 2009. Lisa is a to what extent we are at the mercy of

available on all book selling websites across the like each year appears to indicate
the world. that a great many of us do indeed
believe that fate has a significant hand
in our life path. Has our life story
indeed already been written by a
cosmic author and can the psychic give
us a sneak preview of forthcoming
events. So, do we have a destiny? Is this
destiny set in stone or can we change
it by conscious effort and freewill.

133
I am sure that we all list amongst our friends those who defend the power of their
own freewill vehemently and who brand psychics etc as charlatans; just as many will
swear by their accuracy. The rest are perhaps too scared to find out; or as I have
discovered, those who are happy and satisfied with their lives rarely trouble
themselves with the question of fate versus
freewill. The burning question of what Madonna once said, “When you
destiny is and how to find one’s own destiny want something badly enough, it is
is the domain of those who are dissatisfied,
as if the entire universe conspires to
unhappy or in turmoil.
help you achieve it.”
Prolific writers on this subject like Uri Geller
and Jo Vitale, as well as books like ‘The Secret’
contend that one’s life course is totally within our sphere of influence: we, not Fate
are in control. They advocate the use of a combination of positive thinking,
affirmations and visualisation to achieve one’s dreams. Their bottom line is that
virtually ANYTHING is possible and the limit is simply one’s own imagination or
belief system. Is it really as simple as it sounds: how fabulous?
Madonna once said, “When you want something badly enough, it is as if the entire universe
conspires to help you achieve it.” This theory is at the heart of positive thinking.
I conducted my own extensive research into this subject and found that there
was more to positive thinking than thinking positive. In order for visualisation,
affirmations and the like to be effective, you need to root out both conscious and
subconscious beliefs which can scupper your best efforts at positive thinking. I was
amazed at how powerful subconscious beliefs could be! What I mean by subconscious
beliefs, is the ideas which are set into or programmed into our thinking which we
do not often think about, but which influence all our decisions. Often these sub
conscious beliefs are planted by our parents, teachers or religions; here are some
examples: dreams don’t come true; stick to the day job; you aren’t good at maths; actors are
always out of work; everyone in our family is fat; money is hard to come by; being very
rich is sinful; you’re not university material; you’re working class; get a proper job; if you
don’t get married you will be on the shelf; money is the root of all evil; all the best
girls/guys are taken. In order for positive thinking to be effective we have to eradicate
all the negative seeds which others or perhaps past experience has planted within our
psyche. It is not always easy as often these negative, limiting notions are deep seated
and, it is said that a negative thought is four times more powerful than a positive
one. This is one of the reasons why positive thinking often does not work; all our
best efforts at visualisation and affirmations are undermined by that little voice
inside saying: this will never work; you don’t deserve it; it can’t be this easy. All it
takes is a small amount of doubt to negate everything.
I return to Madonna’s theory and note that single minded, focused attention on a goal
allowing no doubt to creep up on you should have exactly the results she has experienced
according to the theory.

How often have you heard someone say: I’ll believe it when I see it or when I see
results. However it rarely works that way, as Linda Goodman says, “For all those
who believe, expect a miracle!” The belief or the mindset is the lynchpin.

134
Another more recent slant on positive thinking is Cosmic Ordering, a system
supported by Noel Edmonds who purportedly found it highly effective. Cosmic
Ordering appears to be a rather novel and updated version of ‘saying one’s prayers’!
One asks the universe for something and (hopefully) it is granted to you. Again, on
a deeper level, I think one can only gain from this method to the extent to which
you honestly believe you deserve or can achieve what you are asking for. Noel
Edmunds attributes cosmic ordering to the reigniting of his career.

D eepak Chopra who writes extensively on spiritual matters; discusses the


concept of synchronicity with respect to destiny and the finding of one’s
destiny. Synchronicity: something we often refer to in daily life as ‘being
meant’ or ‘coincidence’, is almost like a little nudge in the right direction from Fate.
Synchronicity can also take the form of a serendipitous event or meeting which
changes the course of our life. I believe that synchronicity underlines the notion that
we do indeed have a destiny - which we may be totally unaware of - and Fate will
via circumstances attempt to push us towards that destiny. The effects of
synchronicity can often be appreciated when we look back at our lives and how
things ‘mapped’ out. I came across a concrete example of one of these little life changing
coincidences: Penny and Mike returned to the UK after working abroad for many years with
not much money, but a dream of running a guest house. Totally disconsolate after another
fruitless day of searching for a B&B to buy in the South East; Penny hurled the property
magazine into the back of the car with dismay. Later on tidying the car, Penny noticed that
that same magazine had flopped open on a certain page: a page advertising a guest house for
sale in the Cotswolds. By “coincidence” this guest house was in a little town where she and
her husband had once dreamed of living. Filled with a sense of ‘this must be meant’ they
went for it and despite many odds, were the proud owners months later. After starting with
nothing more than a full guest book and £200, they now run an award winning guest house.

Positive thinking tends to be far more successful when the goals we envision are
unselfish or are in tune with our higher purpose or, put another way: our destiny.
But, how do we know what our destiny is:
The Chinese word for Crisis is maybe synchronicity can provide us with a
‘Change with Opportunity’: many guide. Perhaps only age and the self
awareness which comes with maturity can
times as an Astrologer, I would answer that question. Radio talk show host
see in a chart that there were James Whale, in his recent biography “Almost a
great opportunities for my client. Celebrity” contends that he never planned
anything in his life: one event seemed to lead to
another as if a cosmic director was at work. He says that looking back he can see the vital
link that every event in his life, both good and bad played in the unfolding of his life story.
Perhaps James’ life exhibits synchronicity at work or perhaps he is more in tune with his
destiny and able to capitalise on the coincidences and serendipitous events that may pass
others by.

The Chinese word for Crisis is ‘Change with Opportunity’: many times as an
Astrologer, I would see in a chart that there were great opportunities for my client.
However that client would convey to me that they were suffering great tribulations.
What I came to see was that the ‘comfort zone’ was the biggest block to potential:
135
when we have nothing to lose our lives are dynamic and we go for things;
however when we reach a certain level of achievement we become semi satisfied; we
stop taking chances as we are scared to lose what we now have; as a result we
stagnate. Fate often creates crises in our lives to destroy those comfort zones and to
free up our potential again. This is an example of Fate stepping in to give us one of
those nudges. One of my clients said the following about astrology: “The revelations from
my chart were the start of a new chapter for me. They had set me free. Relieved from this
immense guilt that had weighed upon my shoulders, I began to understand and see the
purpose behind everything that everything that had happened over the past six years. With
a new perspective on the past, I was at last able to move forward.”

Another popular writer on these matters is Louise L. Hay, the author of ‘Heal Your
Life’. While Louise also champions positive thinking and affirmations in achieving
goals, she stresses that the key to happiness and success with affirmations is the
‘releasing’ of all resentment, bitterness and fear. Somewhat like Christianity, Linda
emphasises the value of ‘forgiveness’ as an essential element in moving forward and
negating the influence of the past on your psyche. Forgiveness does not only involve
forgiving others, but also forgiving yourself: no one is unscarred by a mistake. Guilt
and self recrimination is another major reason why positive thinking often does not
work. Guilt, resentment and fear are some of the most destructive and harmful
emotions. Vanessa, 34 and a stressed out yet successful lawyer remarked that reading Louise
L Hay’s book had made her far more aware of how invasive negative thinking was in her
life. Although Vanessa is not ready to believe that anything she affirms or visualises will
materialise; she had found that the use of affirmations and her awareness of how important
being positive is, has already had an impact on her daily life and in reducing her stress level.

Where does Karma fit into this picture? As the cliché goes: what goes around comes
around; but, does everything balance out in one lifetime or over many lifetimes. It is
said that the Astrological Chart is a snap shot of the vibrations we have set up
around this lifetime, by virtue of our forgotten actions in a past lifetime. The notion
of Karma has become more and more important as many more people look to past
life regression therapy for answers. Perhaps then, we need clear our Karmic slate
before we are really able to grab hold of the reins of our life and use positive
thinking to any useful degree. Lara, 42 who recently began to read in depth about Karma
remarked that it was the only theory which had ever made the vast suffering of her life
somehow understandable. This new understanding had given her new strength and the
ability to forgive and move forward for the first time.

So which is it then: choice or chance; Fate or freewill? Are our fates sealed at the
moment of birth?
As an Astrologer, my answer is that Astrology is about choice, not chance. Astrology
can guide us and we can use it to help us forecast and navigate life events, but the
ultimate control lies with us and how we choose to deal with what life dishes up.
There is indeed a high road and a low road and the choice is ours. Maria, 27 who
visited an Astrologer found the following: “The astrologer’s words diminished the pressure
I was putting on myself; I began to take the view that my life was not just a tick-box
exercise; fate was wiser, things would happen they way they were meant to, when the time

136
was right; there was indeed little point in agonising about something I was powerless to
change.”

And, what about that concept of destiny? I see life as an old tree: when we are
young we are travelling up the trunk of the tree, as we have very little say in the
direction of our lives; as we reach adolescence we start making choices which will
affect our life course, this is where the tree begins to branch out. The choices we
make will determine where on the tree we end up, but the tree itself can never
change; a poplar cannot become an oak. The tree, like our destiny, is the framework
for our life, but we do have a wealth of choice within that framework.

My experience has taught me that while some people relish the notion that they can
be in total control of their lives via positive thinking; others prefer to lay their life
in the Lap of the Gods; in a way abdicating responsibility for the their futures.
Debra from the North East of England, who started her working life as a waitress but who
now lives in Argentina where she is a teacher fluent in Spanish, said, “I pinch myself ever
day and marvel at how I ended up on the other side of the world speaking a different
language and living in such an amazing country. Thinking back, this journey started by my
own free choice when I decided to spend a year out in South America, but somewhere along
that way fate seem to have taken over and kept steering me.” Debra’s experience gives
evidence of the combination influence of fate and freewill.
I believe that the relative influence of Fate and Freewill in a life course is as
individual as the person involved. There is no standard; your own unique beliefs both
conscious and subconscious will determine how much say Fate gets in your life.
Thus if you want to take more control over the direction of your life; you can do
so from today: all it begins with is waking your self up from your sleep walk
through life and acknowledging the possibilities you never previously believed were
there.

Why Astrology Is Science: Five Good Reasons
By
Tapan Das, Canada

I n today’s world, at least 90 percent of Americans under age thirty are said to know their
Sun sign, yet no one has ever really delved into answering the question: Is astrology
really a science.

Tapan Das, Ph.D., P.Eng. has written a masterpiece answering this question in his book
Why Astrology is Science: Five Good Reasons.

In this book, Tapan has explained in details the following


five good reasons:

1. Astrology is based on statistical analysis;


2. Astrology is social science
3. Astrology is linked with alternative medicine;
4. Astrology is explained by cosmic energy and
biofield;
5. The basis of astrology is similar to quantum
mechanics.

Stars and planets each have a different influence on our lives depending on their positions in
their signs and heavenly houses…….All these cosmic forces shape our thoughts which in turn
direct our actions. If we are warned that we are prone to rash actions due to the influence of
certain planets, then we can hold a check on our emotion and rash action and catastrophic
results. If we know that the position of the planets give a favorable condition, then we can
take advantage of it by proper action. This is how astrology can help without giving specific
answers to specific questions.

This book is written for scientists, astrologers, and those with a keen interest to learn a new
perspective on astrology that is sure to inspire a new sense of wonder about stars and planets
and their patterns and relationships that hold significant meaning to all of us.

After reading the book, the reader will understand how stars and planets indicate the
positive and negative aspects of a person’s life, that astrology can outline the future but can
not answer one-to-one question. The reader also will have a basic knowledge of astrology,

astronomy, alternative medicine, and quantum mechanics to understand the five good
scientific reasons.

The scientific community will begin to see astrology in a new perspective after reading the
book. They will find that astrology is social science based on statistical analysis not
competing with natural science such as physics, chemistry, etc. It is based on probability, not
certainty.

Death
in Astrology

Copy Editor: Lorin Cerina, Croatia

N o rational person would deny that


birth and death are the most
important events in life. These
events mark the beginning and the ending,
the alpha and omega. Therefore, death
events should be clearly shown in the chart
by dynamic planetary aspects. Any chart
that shows no such activity at the time of
death is simply not correct. Unlike ancient

Toronto, Canada. He can be contacted on
Mostly, people die under a progressed or
ronbippus@rogers.com directed aspect to an angle, especially the
MC/IC axis. Any planet, even benefics
like Jupiter or minor planets such as
progressed Venus or Mercury can act as

140
the trigger for death if it rules one of the houses involved in the end of life or aspects the
ruler of one of these houses.

Classical astrology considers the matters ruled by the houses to be the most important issue
when beginning an analysis. I use the Regiomontanus house system for all of my charts. The
following are the issues of life ruled by the relevant houses in classical astrology. The 1st
house is the house of life and health, the 4th marks the end of life; the 6th house rules illness
and the 8th house is the house of death. The 7th rules the doctor and the 10th is the house of all
medical treatment including surgery. An example of the difference between modern western
astrologers and classical is that modern astrologers tend to think of the 10th house only in
terms of career or reputation.

For a rough estimate of life span from the natal chart, look at the orb between the ruler of
the 1st house of life and the ruler of the 8th house of death or the IC and the ruler of the 8th.
Look for the two planets or planet and angle to perfect a hard aspect - a conjunction square
or opposition. Moviemaker, Robert Altman was born 20 February 1925, 17 Gemini rising, and
died on the 20th of November 2006, age 81 years. To estimate his lifespan, look first at the orb
between Mercury ruler 1st and Saturn ruler 8th. Mercury is at 21 Aquarius conjunct the 10th
house cusp, and Saturn is at 14 Scorpio in the 6th of illness. The orb is 97 degrees. That would
be an improbably long life span, so we need to look at a different indicator. The IC or end of
life is in applying conjunction to Saturn ruler 8th, orb 83 degrees. At his death Solar Arc IC
was exactly conjunct natal Saturn, ruler 8th of death. Transiting Neptune was trine the
ascendant, indicating the use of drugs to ease his pain. He was more than ready to go after a
lengthy battle with leukemia, a blood cancer.

Transits, progressions and directions can all trigger events that can lead to death. This
means that there is a whole suite of indicators that need to be checked before predicting
imminent death. Transits are usually reinforced by the progressions, though not always.
There may be transits that are the only event to trigger a death, but this does not happen
very often. Sometimes the only activity in the chart is a transit by a planet to an angle. Some
astrologers swear by tertiary progressions, but I personally prefer transits, Solar Arc
Directions and Secondary Progressions. Usually two of these three ingredients in the recipe
for Death are in place before something serious and major happens. More often than not,
there is activity on all dynamic fronts, transits, progressions and directions. These aspects
don’t always have to be hard aspects. In some cases, the easy aspects serve just as well.

The MC/IC axis is the angle most often activated when someone dies. The 4th or IC is the
end of life and the 10th or MC is the house of medical treatment. Since the Moon in classical
astrology always co-ruled the ascendant or 1st house of health, the progressed Moon conjunct
the MC or IC is often involved in triggering death. Astrologer Alan Leo, born 7 August 1860,
had the Sun ruler 1st widely conjunct Jupiter ruler 8th of death in the 12th of misfortune, an
indicator of a short life. His Sun/Jupiter orb is six degrees or about six decades, being fixed
and cadent. When he died he had the progressed Moon exactly conjunct the MC a month
after his trial and conviction for fortune telling. Even though he was fined only £25, the

141
emotional stress triggered his death. When he died he had transiting Saturn ruler 6th of
illness conjunct Jupiter ruler 8th of death. SA Mars ruler IC was trine the IC and sextile the
MC and the Mars/IC orb is his closest estimate of lifespan. He was ‘sick’ of his legal
problems and only wanted an end to it. He was a mere 57 years old.

Albert Einstein on the other hand died with progressed Moon conjunct the IC or 4th of end
of life after a lifetime of science and pleasing the ladies. The only transit within orb at the
time of death on the 18th of April 1955 was transiting Neptune square natal Mars. From this I
conclude his doctors stopped life prolonging drugs and allowed nature to take its course. A
recent article in Scientific American celebrating his life delved into his personal habits and
documented several hundred romances with female admirers despite the fact he was legally
married. One wonders when he had time to work at physics. By the time he reached his
seventies he had slowed down intellectually as well as physically, so he was more than ready
to end his life at the age of 76. Natally, Moon ruler 1st is separating from a trine to Saturn
ruler 8th. The orb for Saturn to oppose Moon is 70 degrees. The orb is 73 degrees until the
Moon conjoins Jupiter ruler 6th of illness and MC of medical treatment; a crisis in his illness
was reached and treatment ended. Tertiary Sun squared Saturn ruler 8th. This indicates a
reasonably long life span for his time.

There isn't one particular aspect that is a death aspect. Any planet can indicate death if it
rules the 4th, 6th or 8th houses and makes a dynamic aspect to an angle, especially the
MC/IC. More often than not the progressed Moon or another progressed planet is in tight
aspect to the angles. Generally it is a hard aspect like the conjunction, square or opposition
that leads to death. But soft aspects such as a sextile and trine can also indicate death. After a
lengthy and painful bout with cancer most people are more than ready to let go and pass
over to the other side. Ted Kennedy, brother of assassinated president John F. Kennedy, had
brain cancer and died on the 26th August 2009 with secondary progressed ascendant trine
natal Moon, and tertiary progressed Moon trine natal Venus and conjunct natal Jupiter. The
eclipse just before his death hit his natal Jupiter ruler 12th in the 7th, so he was ready to go
into seclusion and fade from the public. An easy death followed a lengthy illness.

When death is indicated by hard aspects then death is generally not welcome or the
individual is in such bad spot that he commits suicide. Hermann Goering, commander of
Hitler’s Air Force, committed suicide rather than face a lengthy and humiliating war crimes
trial at the hands of the Allies. He killed himself with poison smuggled in by a guard
seduced by a beautiful female accomplice. At the time of his death on the 15th of October
1946, Solar Arc ascendant was conjunct the natal Sun, indicating his light or life force was
being extinguished. As well, transiting Neptune was trine natal Neptune, showing death by
poison rather than being hung by the neck. Transiting Jupiter ruler 4th of end of life was
conjunct the South Node in Scorpio in the 11th, as was the secondary progressed Moon, ruler
of the 8th. So this was a case of 11th house friends helping him to end his life. The SA Moon
was square natal Mars ruler 1st, indicating an emotional crisis involving death, and tertiary
Sun ruler 9th was square natal Mars ruler of his Scorpio ascendant. There was no way out

142
but death, so his personal beliefs led him to end his life by his own hand and cheat the
enemy of a victory. The Moon/Mars orb to perfect a square is a good estimate of his lifespan

Outer planet transits through the 8th house or aspecting a planet in the 8th can be responsible
for deaths. But just because you have a transit or progression in your 8th does not mean
you're going to die either. The Moon's Nodes may or may not be implicated in a death. They
are found to be active in potential physical death only some of the time and can’t be counted
on. In reviewing eclipses I have found most people don’t die on one and having an eclipse
closely aspect a natal planet or point is no sure indicator of death.

The potential for death can be gleaned from the natal chart and certain markers can be
identified which point to a life-threatening time. There is in fact historical evidence that
ancient astrologers like the Greeks were extremely pragmatic regarding death and a whole
chapter of the Tetrabiblos was dedicated to calculating "The Length of Life". Astrologer
William Lilly devoted a fairly lengthy chapter in Christian Astrology to indicators of death
related to the 8th house. Yet he devoted even more space to indicators of a long life.

There are modern astrologers who will argue that death leaves no markers in the native's
chart because death is a non-traumatic transition, like walking across a threshold, and it can
better be detected through a loved-one's chart as a grieving. In my opinion, this is simply not
true. I use the date of death for the final rectification event to correct the birth time of dead
celebrities. As expected, this shows that some celebrity charts were right on time, some were
out only by seconds, and others needed extensive work.

Does death leave its mark on children and other close relatives? Sure it does, it would be
truly surprising otherwise. Death is still one of the most traumatic events to happen in
anybody’s life, especially the death of a parent, spouse or child. My own mother died in 1988
with transiting Pluto, natural ruler of death conjunct natal Moon in Scorpio in the 8th of
death, at the apex of my Sun/Moon/Pluto T-square. This is one case where outer planets
transits in the chart of a close relative clearly indicated that someone would die. Tertiary
progressed MC was opposite natal Mars ruler 8th and SA Moon was sextile ascendant. My
mother died after six months of treatment for very painful lung cancer. My younger sister
had progressed Moon square natal Moon, and transiting Pluto trine natal Mercury ruler 1st.
Both the emotional trauma and the relief at my mother’s passing are clearly shown in her
chart. My older sister had progressed MC square natal Uranus. She experienced the sudden
death of her mother (MC) after lengthy illness. In classical astrology, mothers are ruled by
the MC and fathers by the IC. As this example shows, the evidence for a traumatic event
like death can be clearly seen in the charts of family members.

Let me explore other indicators of long life in the natal chart. In this question you need to
see if the ascendant, its ruler, and the Moon are free from misfortune. That is if the ruler of
the ascendant is free from hard aspects such as conjunction, square or opposition to the ruler
of the 4th, 6th, 8th or 12th houses. You must also see if the ruler of the 1st is direct and angular,

143
especially in the 1st or 10th house. In any natal chart this is the best place for it, or in the 9th or
11th houses, or in good aspect with Benefics such as Jupiter, Venus or Sun.

Indicators of a short life are the ruler of the 1st in the 4th, 6th or 8th or the rulers of these
malefic houses in the 1st. The only way this can be countered is having Venus, Jupiter or Sun
in the 1st house as well as the rulers of the malefic houses. John F. Kennedy had Libra rising,
with Venus ruler 1st in Gemini in the 8th of death; Venus squared the Moon co-ruler 1st in
Virgo in the 11th. The two rulers of the 1st in conflict indicate severe health problems. Saturn
ruler 4th of end of life and natural ruler of bones is in detriment in Cancer in the 10th of
medical treatment. This suggests that even if he had not been assassinated he would still
have had a very short life because of his severe health problems. Jupiter ruler 6th of illness is
in Taurus in the 8th, another indicator of early death due to an illness. He had several
autoimmune disorders that were treated with drugs, Neptune in the 10th.

Kennedy’s short 46-year life is illustrated by the orb from Moon ruler of the 10th of medical
treatment to Neptune of drugs in the 10th. Both planets are illness related and he needed
treatment when SA Neptune conjoined the natal Moon. At the same time SA Moon was
square natal Neptune and SA Venus was conjunct natal Neptune. This is an overpowering
picture of a major negative event requiring medical treatment. The orb in both cases is 45
degrees, and he was murdered on the 22nd of November 1963. His SA Sun natally in the 8th
was exactly conjunct the MC at the time of death, carrying its natal flavour of death and
destruction with it. His life span can be estimated from the orb between Sun in the 8th and
the MC, and his career was ended by sudden death.

However, these indicators are not by themselves always reliable, because it is the planetary
aspects that are the best indicators of a planet’s influence in the chart. Paul Newman had
Capricorn rising with Mercury ruler 6th, Sun ruler 8th and Venus ruler 4th all in his 1st house
of life. He also had Jupiter conjunct the ascendant from the 12th and Venus in the 1st.
Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all opposite Pluto in the 6th of illness. Despite this, he lived a
long and productive life, had a happy marriage and children and was well respected for his
work as an actor. The key to his long life are the sextiles from Saturn ruler 1st in the 10th to
the stellium in the 1st. Despite some obvious difficulties shown by the placement of the
rulers of the malefic houses in the 1st, the fact that two of the planets are benefic Jupiter and
Venus is enough to counteract the negative influences. Sun ruler 8th is also in the 1st, but in
its detriment in Aquarius and conjunct the South Node. This makes the Sun’s influence
very weak but allows its energy boost to extend Paul’s life to the maximum allowed by the
Saturn/Sun orb of 83 degrees.

For a rough estimate of lifespan, look at the orb between the ruler of the 1st or the Moon and
the ruler of the 8th. For Paul Newman, born 26 Jan 1925, the Sun ruler 8th is natally in
Aquarius in applying square to Saturn ruler 1st. The Saturn/Sun orb is 83 degrees, so it
would take roughly that many degrees or years to make a conjunction. This gives a rough
estimate of about 83 years for his life span. He died on the 26 August 2008 at the age of 83½
with transiting Jupiter conjunct the ascendant. Actor Don Ameche was born on 31 May 1908

144
and died on the 6th of December 1993. He died when SA Saturn, which is natally in the 4th of
end of life reached his natal Moon ruler 8th. The orb is just over 84 degrees, and he was 85 at
death.

Learning to estimate lifespan is a specialized skill and requires a great deal of practice. You
need to study the charts of people whose birth and death times are known with a high degree
of accuracy and apply a whole suite of analysis tools. There are several indicators, which can
interact in many different ways. To judge life span accurately takes an in-depth knowledge
of astrology and a good bit of experience. It is a challenging task but no more so than any
other important question in astrology.

Financial Astrology Micha Felner
– An Interview
Conducted For Saptarishis Astrology
By
Maarit Laurento, Finland

M aarit Laurento has had an interesting talk with Micha Felner who has developed
new fascinating methods for financial astrology. Micha Felner is originally from
Israel and is now living in Amsterdam. He is a member of ISBA, the
International Society of Business Astrologers http://www.businessastrologers.com . You
can contact Micha at felner.micha@gmail.com

What is your astrological background, Micha?


My astrological era began in 1982 and since then it was more or less my only doing. From the
beginning I have developed methods which are different from the ordinary classical
astrology; however these methods are very well based on the traditional astrology.

How and when did you become a financial


astrologer?
Around 1997 while I was staying in the US, I
started to investigate the stock market with a lot of
curiosity checking if my method was good enough
for analyzing the stock market. That time I was
not aware as to what I am getting into.

What do you mean by saying that?


Now, after 12 years I can say that it was the most
fascinating learning process I ever had. Some parts
of the journey had been painful, like in the old
saying:
“No pain, No gain”. When the Sun is in the 8th
house like it is in my case, this is my main way of
learning. From the methodical point of view, there
is no better feedback than the stock market
performance, to give a clue if my way of thinking
and analyzing is right or wrong. In a personal
consultation, the client may return or may not. The stock market history and current
performance always exist to teach you something. All along the years I spent unlimited time
comparing the market history and the different planetary combinations trying to understand
the connection between the two.

157
You mentioned your different methodology, could you, please, tell us more about
it?
Yes, of course. I am using a traditional method that gives each planet a solar or a lunar
identity by a day or a night chart principle. This is a very important tool as each planet
except the Sun and the Moon are ruling 2 signs which are very different from one another.
Having this identity is helping for more precise birth chart analyzing and prediction. In
addition, I am using a house system called “The Focus Degree House System”. It is an equal
house system that combines the Asc and the Mc to an average degree, which is the center of
the house.
This degree can be called as “The Main Life Clock”.

The last important method factor is the intense use of the 3 crosses to have a better
understanding of life processes. (1-7/4-10 2-8/5-11 3-9/6-12)
By that, each planet going into a house, reflect the other 3 houses that belong to the same
cross.

You predict the future; what kind of prediction system do you use?
I am using transits planets and transits midpoint to sensitive points such as the Focus
degrees that I mentioned before. By that, I am only looking at exact birth time factors, so
there is a great dependency on exact birth time data. To make the process easier, I produced
a computer program that enables the user to find the exact birth time within 2 hours of an
estimated time. All you have to do is to type in few significant events from the person’s life
and the program instantly comes up with the exact birth time.

Please tell us more about the data issue. What kind of data are you looking for?
Regarding the market data, and I am referring only to the US market, I am using the birth
data of the main indexes such as: Dow Jones, S&P 500, Nasdaq and Russull 2000.

More problematic is the company’s data. I am using the excellent file of Michael Munkasey
from the US. In that file there is information on most companies that are trading in NYSE,
including the changes history of the companies’ formation.
I am using the first trading data, together with the last registration date of the company. Not
always the exact data is available, but in the end I can say that Michael did and doing a great
job dealing with this matter. Without this file, my life as a financial astrologer would be
much harder.

Let’s get back to the methodological issue. In your experience, what is needed from
the astrological method to be most suitable for the stock market analyzing?
In my experience, there are 2 important conditions for that. One is that for any given
indication using by that method, the positive or the negative influence will be defined very
clearly. There is no room for a lack of clarity. The second condition is that it should be clear
what is more important and what is less regarding the different indications using that
method. Without these 2 basic conditions it will be impossible to make the right analyzes.

Let’s talk about your actual work as a financial astrologer. Are you a trader
yourself?
Yes, I am.
158
When you compare yourself with other traders, what kind of similarities and
differences do you find?
Unlike anybody else that are busy listening to all kind of information trying to figure out
what is meaningful, and what is not, my job is not to listen to anything.

What do you mean by not listening?


I am expecting my method to give me an advantage, so while people are busy with the
current trend, I can prepare myself to the next phase, by what I see coming in my papers. If
I will listen to the ordinary information, it will just take me out of focus. So the CNBC
channel is open in my place, but mostly to follow the market movements, and much less to
listen to different people’s opinions.

Could you, please, give us a more specific example?


I am choosing now stocks for 2010 portfolio. Sometime there is a big difference between the
stock performance right now and between the potential future as it’s appear to me.
My work is to take an advantage of that gap and find the best buying period.
If the stock has a down trend right now, and I understand why it is from the astrological
point of view, then the turning point will be when positive astrological data is replacing the
bad one, and just before that it might be a buying period opportunity.

It sounds very simple, is it so?


It is not as simple as it sounds. Sometimes, the positive and the negative astrological data
coming together and I have to evaluate many factors at the same time. When more and
more positive astrological factors are coming into the picture, I should trust what I see and
put money on the table a while before, even the trend did not change yet. So when I want to
be one step ahead, that means to be able to act many times in the opposite direction than the
current trend. However, to follow one stock is not as difficult as it is to follow the market as
a whole.

Do you mean predicting the directions of the main indexes such as Dow Jones,
Nasdaq etc?
Yes, this is the real difficult part. If there is anything that I spent 90 percent of my time is
on this issue of defining the US stock market structure from the astrological point of view.

Could you, please, be more specific?


I am using the main indexes birth chart data, not only each chart alone, but also different
combinations of composite charts between the indexes. For example, the composite chart
between the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 create a cycle at 3 degrees of Cancer. When Pluto
was at 3 degrees of Capricorn, according the method I am using, it was one of the important
factors for the major up-trend in the market during that period of time. By many other
different calculations, there are more many cycles. In the end, there is a complete map of
cycles for the US market. Then for any given time I check the current transits picture in
regards to that complete US market map. Of course not all of the cycles are activated at the
same time, but for any given time, there is enough information to evaluate.
This is the complicated part. I am glad for any time I am having a success, and when it is
not the case, I am willing to learn from it for the next time.

159
Can you give an example for both cases, for a success and for a failure?
On summer 2008 I was able to predict that September 2008 is a problematic period for the
market. I was not sure how strong it will be, but in the end I prepared the right position to
benefit from the down trend. Also, around the end of March 2009 I was convinced that the
major down trend is over, so I was buying stocks at a very cheap price. That was fun. On the
other hand, I did not see the February 2009 strong down trend, so I sold my short positions
too early and did not benefit from that trend.

Do you consult other people regarding the stock market?


From time to time I give a recommendation on different stocks. In most cases people want
to know about the market in general.

Furthermore, do you give consultation to business clients?


I consult few companies’ managers regarding their business.

What kind of information are you able to give them?


I am kind of a time planner for them. When is the good time to act, or when is the time not
to act, or which direction to put the energy in any given time.

Things to do and not do?


Yes, exactly. The most important consultation is about deals. Go or not go regarding new
business activities.

It sounds like a lot of responsibility?


It is. I prefer to say what I see and to be wrong, then not to say and realize that what I saw
was correct. Business people are interested in what can give them an advantage in
comparison to others. As long I am giving them that, they are happy.
Otherwise, they will not come anymore.

What is your opinion regarding the crisis; how bad is it, when will it end?
I think for the moment, we are coming out of the crisis. It may take more time then the
optimistic recovery view. It is looking like the market is still vulnerable to a down trend,
any time the optimistic view for a quick recovery will not be justified by the reality. In 2010
in general I see a huge difference between sectors performance in US economy.

Furthermore, the problem is not when the sense of crisis is still in the air, but when things
will get back to normal. Then I see new bubbles in the world economy. When these bubbles
will explode, the 2008 crisis will be like a children’s game, as compared to that new future
crisis.

When is it going to happen?


This information I tend to keep between me and myself.

The seventh international financial and business astrology conference ISBA 2010
will be organized in Finland next summer (Helsinki June 11-12). You are going to
give a talk. What is your topic for that talk?

160
I am going to talk about the US stock market outlook for 2011. In my talk I will combine a
full explanation regarding the methods I am using, together with a complete US market
outlook for 2011. It is a great challenge, and it will be a 2 hours talk divided into 2 parts.

See you all next June in Helsinki!

What Is The Solar-Lunar Method


The solar-lunar method is a basic
technique that gives each planet rather a
solar or lunar identity.

162
.

In the diagram above, the dividing line divides the wheel into 2 symmetrical parts, so each
planet represented on both sides. In that diagram, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto appears as a
higher level of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars.

By the Sun-Moon polarity represented by Cancer-Leo signs, we can see that it takes 30
degrees to change from a Solar phase to a Lunar phase.
This principle applies for each one of the planets by giving them solar or lunar identity

A Day Or A Night Chart


It is all determined by the position of the Sun above or below the horizon.
If the Sun is above the horizon, it is a day chart.
If the Sun is below the horizon, it is a night chart.

In a day chart, each planet in the chart will have a Solar or a Lunar identity as it appears in
the half side of the Sun in the diagram above. (Day)

In a night chart, each planet in the chart will have a Solar or a Lunar identity as it is appears
in the half side of the Moon in the diagram above. (Night)

Therefore:

In a day chart (Sun above the horizon):


Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Pluto will have a Lunar identity.
Venus, Jupiter, Neptune will have a Solar identity

In a night chart (Sun below the horizon):


Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Pluto will have a Solar identity.
Venus, Jupiter, Neptune will have a Lunar identity

163
The Rectification Process – The 2 Main Cycles
Unlike many others rectification methods that are looking for the right ASC and MC, the
following rectification method is about 2 main others degrees.
One is the Focus degree.
The second is the Karma degree.

Focus Degree Calculation – Example (see diagram below)


The Mc is at 0AQ44
Adding 90 degrees bring us to 0TA44
The Asc degree is at 21TA45
The midpoint between (MC + 90) and between the Asc is 11TA15
This is the focus degree of the 1st house.
30 degrees farther on is the focus degree of the 2nd house, and so on.
By this method, the focus degree is the center of the house.

0 44
Focus Degree
MC

11.5

21 45 ASC

The Karma Degree Calculation – Example (see diagram below)


The Midpoint between the Focus degree and the Moon-Node is The Karma cycle degree.
By the above focus degree calculation example, the focus degree is at 11TA30
The Moon-Node is at 15VI
The Karma degree cycle will be at 13CN which is the midpoint between the two.

164
0 44
Focus /

11.5
15

Focus /

In both cases, the focus and the karma degrees, these degrees create a 12 houses degrees cycle,
means that the 2nd house focus degree will be at 11GE30 and so on
It means that the 2nd house karma degree will be at 13 Leo.

The Rectification Process – Verifying The Events

When we are verifying the events, the focus will be on the position of 6 major transit
positions:
Uranus
Neptune
Pluto
Uranus/Neptune
Uranus/Pluto
Neptune/Pluto

Stage 1
Looking at 1979 event – most of the major planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto is at the
degree 17.
As it is the first main album release, we can assume that the focus degree is at 17 degree or at
2 degree (45 degrees cycle)

Stage 2
If the Focus degree is at 17 or 2 degree, what are the possibilities for the Karma cycle degree
to be?

The Moon-Node in MJ chart is at 23LI.


So the possible degree for the karma cycle is
20 or 5 (45 aspect)
165
when calculating midpoint between 17 and 23
Or
12 or 27 (45 aspect)
when calculating the midpoint between 2 and 23

After a quick check of the events above and the main transits planets positions, it was
mostly clear that the 20/5 appearances are much more dominant.

That is leaving us with 12 possibilities, in the range of 24 hours rectification, as the focus
degree is at 17 degree and the karma cycle is at 20 or 5 degrees.

Stage 3
Going into the second event – 12/1982 we are trying to find out:
Can we get another confirmation to the degree 17 as the focus degree?
Can we have an idea what is the 1st house sign which will lead us directly to the exact birth
time as we know already the exact degree?

The 6 main positions are:


Uranus – 6SAG
Neptune – 26SAG
Pluto – 28LI30
Uranus/Neptune – 16SAG
Uranus/Pluto – 17SC
Neptune/Pluto – 27SC

We can consider 2 transits out of 6 around the 17 degree as a kind of confirmation for the 17
degree as the focus degree.
We can not have any idea by this 1982 event what is the 1st house sign of MJ

Stage 4
Now we are coming to one of the most important years of MJ life the 1985 year.
In that year he received the Grammy award, he bought the “ATV Music” and he wrote the
song “We are the world”
Looking at the Grammy award date – 26.2.1985
The 6 main positions are:
Uranus – 17SAG
Neptune – 03CP
Pluto – 04SC
Uranus/Neptune – 25SAG
Uranus/Pluto – 26SC
Neptune/Pluto – 04SAG

The most interesting position is:


Uranus at 17SAG

166
Regarding Uranus at 17SAG
If we compare the 1979 first main album release to the Grammy award event, this is the only
main transit position that repeat itself.
Neptune was at 17SAG in 1979 event
Uranus was at 17SAG in 1985 event.
We like to make an assumption that 17 in mutable signs will be the 1st house sign.
In that case we have 4 possibilities for the 1st focus degree:
17 Gemini
17 SAG
17 VIRGO
17 PIECES

Now for the first time we will use the solar/lunar principles to figure out which
one of these 4 possibilities is most likely to be the right one.

We have to assume that Uranus transit was solar to the 10th house as it was creating and
advancing MJ status.
By that:
Gemini 1st house is a night chart as the Sun is below the horizon.
Uranus transit will be in that case Solar in the 7th house
(Uranus is solar in a night chart)
Because the 90 degree aspect turns the phase of the planet, it will be lunar regarding the 4-10
houses.
So we have to drop that possibility.

Virgo 1st house is a day chart as the Sun is above the horizon.
Uranus transit will be in that case lunar in the 4th house
(Uranus is lunar in a day chart)
So we have to drop this possibility as well

We remain with 2 options only: SAG or Pieces 1st house sign.


17 SAG in a day chart comparing to 17 pieces in a night chart
The main problem to find which the right one is the fact that each transit we will check will
have the same outcome.
(See the 2 pictures below)

Uranus Transit
in a day chart

17SAG

167
Uranus Transit
in a night chart

17SAG

A solar transit is activating the house.


A lunar transit brings a passive energy into the matter.
How can we separate between these 2 possibilities?

Now it is the time to use the Karma cycle.

Stage 5
In the 17 SAG option, the karma cycle is 20SC
(The midpoint between 17SAG and 23LI)

In the 17Pieces option, the karma cycle is 20TA


(Because it is a night chart, and the position of the Sun in relation to the Moon-Node is a
day chart, we have to make to Moon-Node degree to be a night chart as well-means to be
23CN
By that the karma cycle is the midpoint between 17PI and 23CN

Now we have 2 options which are in opposition between one another one is a day chart –
20SC
One is a night chart – 20TA in regards to the Sun position in Virgo.

If we will check transits to this cycle, we will have different interpretation by the solar-lunar
method.
Here we come.

Regarding the 8/1993 molesting accusation:


In general we are expecting to find solar transits to the 8th house, and lunar transit to 5th / 11th
houses.
These accusations could hurt MJ reputation badly, and that is what the lunar transits to 5-11
houses should show.

168
In addition we may find solar transits to 1-7 houses and lunar transits to 4-10 houses as it
puts in risk MJ’s career.

Here are the positions of the main transits:


Uranus – 19CP
Neptune – 19 CP
Pluto – 22SC
Uranus/Neptune – 19CP
Uranus/Pluto – 20SA50
Neptune/Pluto – 20SA50

To begin with, all the positions are around the degree 20 which is the karma cycle in both
possibilities.
We will focus first on Uranus/Pluto and Neptune/Pluto midpoints both at 20SAG.

For the 17PI focus degree possibility which makes the karma cycle to be at 20TA (A night
chart)
Both midpoints are on the 8th house degree of the karma cycle.
Because it is a night chart:
Uranus/Pluto midpoint – both planets are solar and activating the 8th house.
Neptune/Pluto midpoint is mixed, Neptune is lunar and Pluto is Solar to the 8th house.
We always consider Pluto influence to be stronger then Neptune, so it is the solar Pluto to
the 8th house that dominant the picture again.

Karma Cycle At 20TA

20TA

Pluto at 22SC is a bit out of the picture as we are discussing the 20 degree cycle.
However, for this possibility the Moon-Node/MC-1 cycle is at….
22TA, as we take the MC 1st house degree which is 21PI as the MC is at 21SAG.

169
Because it is a night chart, it is the solar Pluto that activating the 7th house degree, and by
that 4-10 houses will be lunar.
BINGO
This is what we are looking for.
The 8th house and 1-7 houses are having solar transit at the same time.
This is not only “BAD”.
This is really “BAD”.

To complete the picture, on 20.11.2003 when MJ was arrested Pluto is at 19SAG and moving
forward to 20SAG announcing one of the most embarrassing happening in MJ life.
Again the 8th house degree of the karma cycle had been activated.
At that time, the Moon-Node itself is at…. 20TA !

This can explain the difference between the 1993 event when there was no arrest involved
and the 2003 event.
In 1993, regarding the midpoint Neptune/Pluto at 20SAG, the Neptune is lunar to the 8th
house, which makes it to be solar to the 5th house.
So there was a way out then.

In 2003 solar Pluto to the 8th house is stand alone making the lunar influence to the 5th house,
so there was no escape this time.

What would happen if we take the other option of 17SAG which makes the karma
cycle to be at 20SC – A day chart.

In that case, in August 1993:


The lunar energy will be on the 2nd house- 20SAG.
By that, the solar energy will go to the 90 degrees phase, to 5-11 houses.
By that it should be a supporting reputation event, and it was not.

The same is about 20.11.2003, when Pluto was at 20SAG.


Pluto is lunar in a day chart and on the 2nd house, sending solar energy to the 5th house.
So it is not making any sense as well.

By that we can determine that the 19:40 PM is the right time for
MJ which was born on 29.8.1958 and died on 25.6.2009
ASC – 13PI
MC – 21SAG
Focus – 17PI
Karma – 20TA

The USA was born when it separated from
its mother country, England. That separation is
dated July 4, 1776, although it was really more a process than this specific date implies. Most
American astrologers accept this date as the birthday of the USA but argue about what time
on July 4, 1776 the actual birthing occurred. In other words, when did this new nation take
its first breath, free from dependence on its mother country? The time most astrologers
accept for this event is late afternoon of July 4, 1776, usually designated as 5:10 PM and called
“The Sibley Chart.”
I prefer to use what is usually called the “Gemini Rising” chart, mainly because the
most influential founders were Masons and this chart puts Venus, Jupiter, Sun and Mercury
all in Cancer in the 2nd, the “money house.” The rapid rise of this new nation to the world’s
most expansive and wealthiest is a kind of testimony, I think, to a birth time of 2:15 AM.
Also, that time puts Uranus in Gemini on the Ascendant, and “Uncle Sam’s” persona to the
world certainly fits the astrological reading for that combination.
No matter what time on July 4, 1776 we use for the birth time, the system I have come
up with for predicting stock market crashes works by transit-to-natal angles to two important
positions in the USA’s nativity. For calculating crashes, it doesn’t matter what houses of a
Western style chart they fall in. Well, it matters to any astrologer who wants to explore the
finer points of the USA’s situation at any given time, but not to anyone who only wants to
predict when the next major stock downturn is likely.
Long ago I gave up trying to predict the stock markets day to day. It seems to me that
so many influences are involved in daily movements, it’s impossible to predict daily ups and
downs by any astrological method more than 70 percent of the time. Although the Lunation
and Mars often trigger major daily moves, you could lose your shirt trying to rely on them
over time.
It’s said in the USA that when the New York Yankees win the World Series, stocks
will rise during the coming year. I haven’t researched this but word on the street is that this
stock predictor works 100 percent of the time. Of course stocks can rise in numerical value
during times of inflation, when investors lose money because the increased numbers of
dollars they make buy less than the fewer dollars they’d invested.
I want to emphasize that my system for predicting crashes doesn’t work 100 percent of
the time, but it has worked since 1857 with but few exceptions. It doesn’t enable you to
pinpoint the precise time of a crash, but it does give you a “zone” of time within which a
crash is likely, very likely, or practically certain. In other words, on a scale of 1 to 10, it
enables investors to bet the downside and win better than 90 percent of the time.
Since the last quarter of 2007 we have been in a “crash zone” according to my system.
The downturn that began in late 2007 turned into a full-blown crash by the summer and
172
autumn of 2008. Still within the crash zone in early 2009, stocks ticked up, plunged again
March, ticked up again and by now (early November 2009) appear to be headed higher. This
correlates with my system—the 2009 crash zone is abating—while a pattern that has
correlated with past great depressions is forming.
One more caution before I get into the details of my system: If you’re an amateur
trader, especially a risk-averse one, you are liable to be scared out of the stock market just
before a major move that would have made you richer. This happened to me, as I am not a
skillful trader. I was sure the markets were going to drop like a rock on September 15, 2008,
but Congress was voting on a stimulus package around noon of the big crash day. As the
vote was being counted, the Dow turned up and I took that as a signal that the market had
gone down as far as it would go that day and sold my bearish positions—only to see the Dow
turn down again and dive to a new record after Congress rejected that first stimulus package.
I made about half as much money as I would have made if I’d stayed in.
The Plunge Protection Team is another factor one has to take into consideration when
predicting American stock markets. That is the nickname given to a secret group formed by
Executive Order during the presidency of Ronald Reagan. This group’s mission is to prevent
catastrophic stock market plunges by stepping in to buy (presumably with taxpayer-backed
dollars) when markets appear to be crashing. If the planetary angles indicate crash, the PPT
can lessen the severity, but not prevent the
downturn. The astrological influences and/or

My system aims at simplicity. Here’s how it
crash. works:

A. Whenever the US Mars-Neptune square is conjoined, opposed or squared by the outermost


planets, there is danger of a stock market crash. The outermost planets are Saturn, Uranus,
Neptune and Pluto. The two exceptions in US history are the turbulent years of the 1960s
and the 1830s during President Andrew Jackson’s term. What may or may not count as a
third exception is the late summer and autumn of 2009.

B. There is Minimal danger when the US Mars-Neptune square is afflicted by the inner
planets only: Sun, Mercury, Moon, Venus, Mars and Jupiter.

C. There is Maximum danger when more than One of the outermost planets oppose, square or
move conjunct the USA’s natal Mars or Neptune.

D. Usually, it is a Combination of inner and outer planets afflicting the US Mars-Neptune


square which bring panics. Mars and/or the lunations often act as triggers when Saturn,
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto oppose or square the US Mars-Neptune square.

E. History suggests that the number of planets afflicting is more indicative of a crash and panic
than the preciseness of the orb.
173
F. Caution is called for when transiting planets move through Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and
Pisces.

The following is a quick summary of past crashes and the planets which were
afflicting the USA’s Mars-Neptune square at the time:

1857: Neptune and Mars in Pisces.

1869: Saturn in Sagittarius.

1873: Mars in Sagittarius; Sun, Mercury, Jupiter in Virgo.

1893: Pluto, Neptune, Sun, and Venus in Gemini.

1903: Pluto and Venus in Gemini; Uranus in Sagittarius; Jupiter in Pisces. 34.1% loss from
Feb. to Nov.

1907: Pluto in Gemini; Saturn in Pisces. 40.9% loss from Dec. 1906 to Nov. 1907.

1916: Mars in Sagittarius, Chiron in Pisces. From Nov. 1916 to Dec. 1917, the Dow dropped
by more than one-third. This loss is spread over too long a time to qualify as a panic, but I
include it here because of the amount lost: 34.9%.

1920: Saturn in Virgo; Mars in Sagittarius. The Dow plunged precipitously in October 1919.
Before the turnaround in the summer of 1921, the Dow had lost 41.2%.

1929: Saturn in Sagittarius; Jupiter in Gemini. Oct. 28 and 29, Dow lost 24.5%.

1932: From peak reached in Sept. 1929 to May 1932, the loss was 81.8%

1937: Mars, Moon and Moon’s Node in Sagittarius, Chiron in Gemini, Neptune and
Mercury in Virgo. From Aug. 1937 to April 1938, Dow lost 39.3%.

1946: Uranus and Moon’s Node in Gemini, Mars and Venus in Virgo. From May ’46 to
May’47, Dow lost 25.3%

1987: Saturn and Uranus in Sagittarius; Moon’s Nodes in Pisces and Virgo. Oct. 19 Dow lost
22.6%

1997: Mars and Venus in Sagittarius; Moon’s Nodes in Pisces and Virgo.

April 3, 2000: Pluto and Chiron in Sagittarius, Venus and Mercury in Pisces. Dow lost 19.6%
during this month.

May 15, 2001: Pluto, Mars and Moon in Sagittarius; Sun in Pisces.

174
September 11, 2001: Pluto and Chiron in Sagittarius; Saturn and Moon in Gemini; Sun in
Virgo. Dow had lost 22.9% by December 2001. NASDAQ fell 50.7% from July 2000 high to
December 2001.

Oct. 2007 - Mar. 2008: 19% drop. Uranus in Pisces opposite the US Neptune was the most
influential.

Sept. 15, 2008: 500 point drop. Full Moon conjunct Saturn-Uranus opposition,
conjunct/opposite US Neptune and square US Mars.

One of the most fascinating things about the study of astrology is that you cannot
predict anything with absolute certainty. At least I can’t predict the stock market with
absolute certainty. After defining all of 2008 as a crash zone because of a Saturn-Uranus
opposition that hit the USA’s Mars-Neptune square—a prediction that proved true—I
predicted that another exact Saturn-Uranus opposition in September 2009 would bring
another crash, but that one didn’t materialize. After stocks fell in March 2009, they
zigzagged higher to the present, November 2009, even though the Saturn-Uranus opposition
was closer to exactly hitting the USA’s Mars-Neptune square in September. What this and
other similar instances suggest is that the affliction to the USA’s Mars-Neptune becomes
most effective when stocks are ripe to fall. But after a crash, prices are low and ripe to rise,
and not likely to fall again when hit again by the same pattern that coincided with the
previous crash.

The stock market is not to be confused with the overall economy or the Federal
Reserve. Talking heads on TV financial news shows often suggest that if stocks rise, the
overall economy is robust and all is well with the Fed. Actually,
the stock market is part of the overall economy, as is the Fed. But
stocks can rise while unemployment drags down the overall
economy and the Fed struggles with gnarly monetary problems.

By November 2009, many media pundits declared the


“Great Recession,” as they called it, over and done because stocks
were rising. But so was gold, as the dollar was falling and
unemployment remained around 10% (or closer to 20% by a fuller
method of counting). It remained to be seen whether we were
really beyond the worst of the economic woes that struck in 2008, for the astrology involved
indicates we—in the USA—are headed into another great depression.

We have never avoided a great depression in the past whenever the outermost planets
form a grand cross pattern with the USA’s Sun-Saturn square. And by late 2009, the Saturn-
Uranus opposition of 2008-2009 was evolving into a T square with Pluto square Uranus,
which will move within orb of a grand cross to the USA’s natal Sun-Saturn square. This
next grand cross will form gradually. By July 2010, as indicated by the chart below, a Saturn-
Uranus-Pluto T-square will hit the USA’s natal Venus-Jupiter conjunction, but not yet be
within orb of the USA’s natal Sun.

175
What this affliction to the USA’s natal Venus-Jupiter indicates is the probability of
trouble with monetary matters for the USA. Since it is the Fed which deals with such
monetary matters, it’s the Fed which we can expect to be undergoing a radical (Uranus)
transformation (Pluto). And since the Fed and the dollar have, for the past 60 years, been so
pivotal to the world monetary system, we can expect this planetary pattern to coincide with
some kind of major change in the world’s monetary system.
During 2009, there have been persistent rumors that the BRIC countries (Brazil,
Russia, India and China) are dumping dollars, preparing to do away with the dollar as the
preferred currency for international trade. China has begun taking other currencies in trades,
so that their trading partners do not have to convert their currencies to dollars in order to
buy or sell to China. Around the world there has been growing resentment against the
“Almighty Dollar” and US military hegemony. So it appears now, late 2009, that the dollar
is doomed to fall lower against the euro and other currencies. When the dollar falls, gold and
other commodities can be expected to rise, and inflation plague American consumers. Given
the astrology involved, it looks like this trend will either climax or kick into high gear under
the T-square of 2010.
During 2010 and 2011, Saturn will move conjunct the USA’s natal Saturn, square the
USA’s Sun, but probably without causing anything very dramatic in the overall economy,
because T Saturn will be out of major aspect with Uranus and Pluto.
The distinct probability is that the overall economy will go on life-support when Pluto
moves within a 7 degree orb of an opposition to the US Sun in November 2011. By this time,
Uranus will be moving into Aries and by the summer of 2012 be within orb of an opposition
to the US Saturn—and simultaneously square Pluto in Capricorn, which will be within orb

176
of an opposition to the US Sun. This will form the grand cross pattern which has
never failed to coincide with a great depression in US history since 1776.
The Full Moon at the end of December 2012 will be conjunct and opposite Pluto and
simultaneously conjunct and opposite the US Sun, square US Saturn, creating a very
difficult T square. That T square will become a grand cross in 2013 when Uranus moves into
an opposition to the US Saturn simultaneously square T Pluto to form the grand cross with
the US Sun-Saturn square, as indicated by the chart below.

The US Sun-Saturn square will be afflicted by the Uranus-Pluto square till 2018,
although the effects may linger into the early years of the next decade. These will be crisis
years for the USA and much of the world. The Chinese saying, “Crisis equals opportunity”
applies.
Since government sets the economic rules and parameters, what the Barack Obama
Administration does in the USA from 2008 till 2012 (assuming Obama gets a second term)
will form the basis for how the USA gets through this crisis period.
Uranus square Pluto spells a time of radical change. If conservatives dominate the
USA, determined to perpetuate the status quo, this period will become a lot more difficult
than if progressives dominate and seek new and innovative ways to cope with this time of
radical change. As things now stand, the US Congress is described as “a wholly-owned
subsidiary of the big corporations,” because so many Congress persons vote for the interests
of the big corporations instead of the voters who sent them to Congress. Corporate lobbyists
distribute campaign contributions, which amount to bribes, which enable politicians to buy
the advertising and public relations that persuade voters to reelect them.

177
By 2020, as indicated in the chart above, Saturn will move conjunct Pluto with both
conjunct the USA’s natal Pluto, opposite the USA’s Mercury. This will bring changes to the
business community of volcanic proportions. Historically, the USA’s Mercury has to do
with business.
Theoretically, the purest form of capitalism is slavery while the purest form of
socialism is economic democracy. In today’s world, although most nations proclaim
themselves to be one or the other, there is really a mix of capitalism and socialism. If we
pose capitalism as the thesis and socialism as the antithesis, it’s quite possible that we will
see a synthesis; something not yet named and defined, arising under this planetary pattern.
Economically, the human race seems to progress in fits and starts, taking two steps
forward and one step backward. Pluto’s roughly 250 year cycle in Capricorn has historically
brought tremendous change—during the late 1490s into the early 1500s, and then during the
1760s into the 1770s when the USA rebelled against its mother country, and was born as a
new nation. So we can be certain that Pluto’s move through Capricorn during this decade
into the early 2020s will bring massive, radical, long-lasting change again, although what
exactly the world will look like by 2025 is hard to say. Much depends on what governments
and economic authorities do in this period to lay the foundation for the future.

Why Astrology is Science: Five Good such as the energy of light and
Reasons. electromagnetic wave.

Classical physics explained all physical


phenomena in the world with two entities –
1
179
matter and fields. Drop a stone from a bridge. The stone is made of matter. It drops
because the earth’s gravitational field pulls it. Earth as a matter produces gravitational field
which pulls the other much smaller matter like stone following Newton’s laws of motion.
Scottish physicist James Clark proposed another field called electromagnetic field laying
down the laws of electric and magnetic fields. Electricity and magnetism are not two
separate fields but different aspects of a single electromagnetic field. Maxwell figured out
that light is also an electro-magnetic field at certain frequencies.

However, problem came with the classical physics in explaining why iron glows red around
thirteen hundred degrees. According to classical physics, black bodies should glow bright
blue at all temperatures. German scientist Max Planck solved this problem by proposing that
matter particles do not vibrate any way they please, but at frequencies that follow the simple
rule:

E = nhf

Where E is the particle’s energy, n is any integer, f is the frequency of the particle’s
vibration, and h is the Planck’s constant. This was the first foundation of the quantum
mechanics. Following this, the most celebrated scientist of the twentieth century Albert
Einstein explained the photoelectric effect – light’s ability to eject electrons out of metal –
using Max Planck’s quantum action. Einstein also showed that light consists of shower of
particles called photons.

While physicists were puzzling over the light’s seemingly contradictory properties - waves
and particles, French physicist Louis de Broglie hypothesized that all entities have both wave
and particle aspects. The wavelength of a photon can be obtained from its momentum by the
formula:

p = h/λ

Where, p is the momentum, λ is the wavelength, and h is the Planck’s constant. But, this
wave function differs from ordinary waves in that it carries no energy. For an ordinary
wave, the square of its amplitude measures its energy. For a quantum wave, the square of its
amplitude at a certain location represents not energy but probability, the probability that a
particle – localized quantum of energy - will be observed by a detector placed at that
location.
2
probability = (amplitude of wave function)

The fundamental principle of quantum mechanics is based on the laws of probability, not
laws of certainty. Probability is a measure of the relative number of ways an event can
happen. The probability that a coin, when tossed, will come up heads is exactly ½ or 0.5. But
the result of any toss is uncertain. But, if we flip the coin enough number of times, say a
million times, we will find that heads showed up very close to half a million times making
the probability of heads almost ½ or 0.5.

Danish physicist Niels Bohr, who is considered the founder of quantum mechanics,
proposed that electrons can exist only at discrete energy levels around the nucleus of an
2
180
atom which prevents them from spiraling into the nucleus as classical physics
predicts. Let us look at the picture of a hydrogen atom in its ground state. If we think that
the electron is looping around the nucleus as shown in Figure 1A, then we are 80 years out of
date. According to quantum mechanics, the probability density plot of the electron in
hydrogen atom is shown in Figure 1B. The density of the dots represents the probability of
finding the electron in that region.

Figure 1A: Electron looping around the nucleus in hydrogen atom according to classical
physics.

Figure 1B: Electron probability density cloud of hydrogen atom according to quantum
mechanics.

The size of an atom is ~1 x 10-10 meter. The central nucleus where 99.9 percent of the atom’s
mass resides is ~1 x 10-15 to 1 x 10-14 meter. The size of an electron is not exactly known, but
thought to be of the order of 1 x 10-14 meter. If the nucleus were the size of our Sun, then the
hydrogen ground state would be twenty times larger than the solar system. If the electron
were really a point particle moving around the atomic space, it would reside in a space so
vacant that it would make solar system seem crowded. Now, if we consider the wave
function of the electron with its probability density, then the probability density will fill up
the whole atomic space. For instance, let us try to push our hand through a wall. Since atoms

3
181
are mostly empty space, their electrons are too small to stop us. But, the probability
density clouds of the atoms push our hand back. Pretty effective, aren’t they?

German physicist Werner Heisenberg proposed uncertainty principle for the quantum
mechanics stating that position and momentum of a particle can not be accurately
determined simultaneously. If the position of the particle is accurately known, then the
speed and direction of the speed will have poor accuracy. This is because the measurement
itself changes the position or speed or direction of the particle. This is not obvious in the
macroscopic world around us. If we want to measure the length of a table with a tape, the
measurement does not change the length or position of the table in our acceptable measuring
capacity. In the case of electron, measurement becomes different. The very act of looking at
the electron with a super high power magnifier uses light made of photons. These photons
would have enough momentum that they once hit the electron would change its course.
Heisenberg wrote the uncertainty principle as:

ΔpΔx = h ………………………………. Equation 1

On the right side is the Planck’s constant divided by 2π. Momentum is represented by p, and
position (distance) is represented by x. The Δ symbols mean ‘uncertainty of’, not ‘change of’.
Hence, Δx is the uncertainty of position, and Δp is the uncertainty of momentum. Since h on
the human scale is extremely small, Δx and Δp are, for all practical purposes, zero in
everyday world.

The attributes of an electron are contextual [1] depending on how they are measured. An
example of a contextual attribute is the color of an object. If you go to a shop to buy a dress,
the color of the dress you choose will depend on the light in the shop. If the dress you choose
is white, but the light in the shop is bluish, then the dress will have the bluish tinge.
Moreover, if you are wearing tinted glasses, then the color of the dress will also depend on
the tint of your glasses. Hence, the contextual attributes of an object depends on the
environment and the person observing or measuring it.

Astrology

A strology is based on the idea that the cosmic events happening in the universe affect
the events happening in the Earth. The basic concept of astrology is that the planets
and zodiacs affect the health and energy of a person. By studying the patterns and
cycles of the planets and zodiacs, astrologers have gathered data thousands of years ago how
cosmic patterns and events affect human life. The planets and their relationship between
themselves and with zodiacs change constantly, but can be predicted accurately by
mathematical calculations. Thus by comparing the position of the Earth to the planets and
zodiacs, astrologers can explain the present event and predict the future.

The cosmic energies that we know so far are the protons of elements of the periodic table.
The dominant elements are hydrogen and helium along with other elements (lithium,
beryllium and boron) with a few like carbon and oxygen. These cosmic rays on their way to
the Earth are deflected by the electromagnetic field present throughout the galaxy. When
these cosmic rays reach the Earth, they collide with the atoms of the upper atmosphere of

4
182
the Earth releasing showers of gamma rays, X-rays and subatomic particles. There may be
other forms of cosmic energies reaching the Earth that are still to be discovered.

Our Sun is producing energy bursts continuously not only in the form of heat and light, but
as radio waves, ultraviolet rays, X-rays, and gamma rays. A solar flare is a sudden local
explosion in a particular region of the Sun’s atmosphere releasing intense bursts of X-rays,
ultraviolet rays, radio waves and energy particles [2]. A constant stream of electrons from
the Sun is responsible for the Auroras on the Earth.

The space surrounding the Sun and its corona is plasma. Each planet has a plasma sheath,
the size of which is determined by the difference between the electric potential of the planet
and that of the nearby solar plasma. The shape of the plasma is like a tear drop with the
pointed end facing away from the Sun. The Sun and all planets except Venus and Mars have
intrinsic magnetic field. There are strong “Dust Devils” in Mars which is a storm of highly
charged particles. The planets and their satellites very close to the Earth also act as shields
for the energy flow reaching the Earth. The effect of shielding of the Moon is particularly
strong for the Earth. Thus the cosmic energies reaching the Earth are also affected by the
solar system.

How these energies affect a person is still to be understood. One theory is that it affects the
biofield of a person. Modern science has confirmed that the human body is not just a
physical structure, but is also composed of energy field. This biofield or human energy field
(HEF) is the frontier of modern science, and the development of diagnostic and treatment
systems. Dr. Victor Inyushin [3] at Kazakh University in Russia has done extensive
research in the area of biofield and has suggested the existence of a bioplasmic energy field
composed of ions, free protons, and free electrons. The bioplasmic particles are constantly
renewed by chemical processes in the cells and are in constant motion. There is a balance of
positive and negative particles within the bioplasma that is relatively stable. A shift in this
balance causes a change in the person or organism. At the same time, some of this energy is
radiated into space. Dr. George De La Warr and Dr. Ruth Brown built instruments to detect
radiation from living tissues, and developed Radionics, a system of detection, diagnosis and
healing from a distance, using the human energy field. They took photographs using the
patient’s hair as antenna. These photographs showed internal diseases, like tumors, cysts
inside the liver, and cancers within the brain.

The biofield energy has been known in the past and has been called by different names in
different cultures, such as qi in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), ki in Japanese Kampo
system, doshas in Ayurvedic medicine, prana in Hinduism. The imbalance in the biofield
energy causes sickness and disease. This concept has been in the practice of many forms of
therapy, like acupuncture, qiqong, ayurvedic, homeopathy, and therapeutic touch.

Similarity between Quantum Mechanics and Astrology

L ike quantum mechanics, astrology is also based on probability. Astrologers have


collected data thousands of years ago how certain pattern of zodiacs and planets
provide certain attributes. Sun sign represents the zodiac that the Sun is in at the time
of a person’s birth. For example, the attributes of a person with Sun sign Aries is –
5
183
leadership, energy, aggressiveness, courage, confidence, arrogance and belligerence. It
does not mean that every Aries person will have these attributes. It means that the
probability of an Aries person to have these attributes is higher than other Sun signs. The
actual figure of probability is not quoted so far, but only be calculated statistically from very
large numbers of collected data.

The uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics applies to astrology as well. The Sun sign
of a person means that the zodiac of the Sun sign, the Sun and the Earth are in line. The
energy particles from the Sun sign zodiac and the Sun reach the Earth, and affect the people
born at that time. But, the energy particles on their way to the Earth can be impacted by the
electromagnetic fields and gravitational fields in the path, and the solar system as described
earlier. Thus there is some uncertainty how much of these energy particles can reach the
Earth. Similarly, there are some uncertainties on the attributes assigned to the Sun signs.
These attributes have been based on the collected data so far. How extensive the data
collection has been is not known and the attributes may change as more data are collected. If
the uncertainty of the energy flow is ΔE, and the uncertainty of the assigned attributes are
ΔA, then

ΔE ΔA = astrology error

As we see from Equation 1, the multiplication of the uncertainties of position and


momentum in quantum mechanics equals Planck’s constant divided by 2π. In case of
astrology, the values of astrology error and its constancy are not known. But, what is
accepted so far is that there is a margin of error in astrology analysis and prediction.

The contextual attributes mentioned in quantum mechanics apply to astrology as well. If the
astrology prediction is that a person is going to win some money, then for a poor person
living in poor neighborhood, winning $100 may be substantial and the neighbors might
congratulate him. But, for a rich person living in rich neighborhood, this amount may be
insignificant and will go unnoticed by the neighbors. Hence, the effectiveness of the
prediction depends on the environment and the observers.

Conclusion
"I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics." - Richard P. Feynman, US
physicist.

No one has yet claimed to understand quantum mechanics, but it has been successful so far
in explaining the behavior of particles at the atomic and subatomic level. Einstein never
accepted the probability theory of quantum mechanics. His famous saying – “God does not
play dice”. He had constant debate with Niels Bohr about quantum mechanics, but they
agreed that somehow quantum mechanics explains the behavior of atomic and subatomic
particles.

Couldn’t the same thing be said about astrology? First thing that should be realized that
astrology is not certainty but probability. Second thing is that the astrology is based on the
data collected over a certain periods few thousand years ago. That data collection has not
continued; hence astrology attributes have not been updated. Astrology has not been
6
184
accepted as a science by the scientific community. In order to get astrology accepted as
a science, its basis should be similar to quantum mechanics – (1) duality of cosmic energies
as particles and waves, (2) probability, not certainty, (3) uncertainty principle of cosmic
energy flow and human attributes, and (4) contextual attributes.

The scientific basis of astrology should be how cosmic energies affect human biofield. There
are two limitations here. First, scientists so far know very little about the cosmic energies.
Our universe is made up of 74% dark energy, 22% dark matter, and 4% ordinary matter
consisting of baryons [4]. So far nothing is known about the dark energy and dark matter.
Second, very little is known about human biofield, although currently some research work is
going on. Until the study of human biofield is taken into mainstream scientific research, the
full effect of cosmic energies on humans will not be understood.

From this point of view the life of the emperor Hadrian would be a particularly difficult case
study: a man who believed in astrology but was also an astrologer himself, just like the
members of the Medici family in Florence and the enlightened Mughal emperors of India,
whom they resembled so much, the object but also the active subject of astrology’s skills in
creating emperors – and also gods – at the time of the Caesars in Rome. (2)

Hadrian, who “explored all branches of science”, united within himself, in an apotheosis of
the late ancient world, two souls and two cultures, the Roman and the Greek, without
favouring one over the other: by praising the wise administration of the former – which also
included his very unusual interest in the education of soldiers, his passion for architecture,
his love of travelling – and his passion for the arts, his versatility, his scientific curiosity,
which included a deep and reverent attention for the guidance of the stars. It is the union of
the opposites – to quote Jung (3) – which produces an increase of positive energy; it is not by
chance that it is under Hadrian’s rule that the long period of peace of the Antonine dynasty,
the happiest period of Roman history, begins; “Under Hadrian there almost was no longer
talk of war” writes Aelius Spartianus, the writer of the Historia Augusta, (4) who testifies to
the man’s and the emperor’s interest for astrology:” Emperor Hadrian’s family has its
remotest origins in the Picenum, its more recent ones in Spain … he was born in Rome on
the 24th of January 76 A.D…. Exactly in the last years of Domitian’s rule he was sent to
Lower Mesia where it is said that an astrologer predicted his future imperial dignity, thus
confirming a prophecy by his paternal uncle Aelius Hadrian, a great expert in the study of
the stars …

He believed he was so skilled in astrology


that, on the first of January he had already
written all that would happen to him during
the year, hence in the year when he died, he
had already written all that he would do to
the last hour of his life…” Hadrian’s
predecessors had already made use of
astrology: Nero with his astrologer
Balbillus, whom he nominated prefect of
Egypt, and whose niece, Julia Balbilla,
would accompany Hadrian to the oracle of
the Colossus of Memnon; and Tiberius with
Trasillus. It had been known for a long time
in the Rome of the Caesars that astrology
The Emperor Hadrian could be used not only to advise but
sometimes to create emperors, and also gods,

187
because the mathematicians (5) of the Roman empire never forgot that they were the
successors of the ancient Caldean priests.

The prestige conferred on astrology by its constant relationship with the godly stars is
splendidly described in the words of Arellius Fuscus, a rhetorician of the time of Augustus:
“He, to whom the gods themselves reveal the future, who also imposes the gods’ will upon
kings and their people, cannot be formed within the same womb that has borne us, ignorant
men. He belongs to a superhuman kind. The confidant of the gods, he himself is divine. If
the affirmations of astrology are true, why is it that men of all times do not devote
themselves to their study? Why is it that from our childhood we do not fix our eyes upon
nature and upon the gods, when we see that the stars unveil themselves for us, and that we
could live amongst the gods?”

In Hadrian’s time an imperial horoscope was not only that of a man’s nature and of a man’s
destiny: it could even signal or create a king: Suetonius, who was an official at Hadrian’s
court wrote that a certain Vettius Pompusianus was sentenced to death by Domitian because
he let people know that he had a horoscope which revealed an emperor. With the danger of
these mathematicians of Greek culture who found within the make up of Caesar’s empire a
way to impose men of their own choice, Hadrian was not the sort of man to leave to others
the use of such a powerful instrument of power: the latest research indicates that he used the
secrets of the geniture oroscopica precisely to back up his government decisions: amongst
others, to choose, very advisedly, his adoptive sons and heirs to the empire: the future Lucius
Verus and a young boy with a pensive and sincere look, Annius Verus, the future Marcus
Aurelius. It appears that Hadrian used the prestige astrology gave to justify a previous
choice, which had at the time appeared bizarre and unjustified, that of the youth Ceionus
Commodus, called Aelius Verus, clearly unsuitable to be a ruler and who died young;
perhaps he was Hadrian’s secret son.

Naturally the astrology of the time took great interest in Hadrian’s horoscope: here is its
description, by an admiring Antigonus of Nicea, a scholar of the 2nd century who must have
been writing soon after the death of the great man:” There was a man born when the sun
was at the 8 degree of the Aquarius, the Moon, Jupiter and the Point of the Horoscope, the
three all together in the first degree of the same sign of Aquarius, Saturn in the 16 degree of
Capricorn, Mercury in the same sign, at the 12 degree, Venus in Pisces at 23 degrees, whilst
Mars was in the 22 degrees … The moon was in conjunction with a bright fixed star …. The
fact that he was honoured and received the proskynesis (6) from all men alike is because
Jupiter was in epicentric vigilance (?) on the Sun and on the Moon … And he received
beneficial qualities from Jupiter’s position. That he was the benefactor of many … comes
from the fact that the epicentric Sun and the Moon were equally served by five other
planets. Above all if the Sun and the Moon are found in the active points (or cardinal ones?)
that is in the Horoscopic Point or in the Mesouranema, and they are thus served by all the

188
stars (planets), they cause those who are born under such a conjunction to become kings
ruling over numerous nations”.

The recent discovery of a Swiss historian (7) has shown the important place astrology had in
the life of this son of Jupiter even during the last years of his life: a mysterious building at
Tivoli, in the villa which Hadrian had built for himself in 118 A.D., and whose purpose was
for a long time a mystery, seems to have been the personal observatory of the emperor. It is
the so-called Teatro Marittimo, which was not a theatre because no plays were ever
performed there, nor a natatio, a pool, because the water there is only a meter deep. It was
instead the place where Hadrian, in the midst of a symbolic architecture, allusive to the four
elements and the sinuous cyclicity of time, would retire to personally read in the stars of the
future of Rome and of the Empire.

The building is a complex


radiocentric structure with a
barrel vault roof supported by a
circular enclosure wall and 40
columns, with a portico which
surrounds a basin with a
central small island, having the
same 44 meters diameter as the
Pantheon. The inspira-tion for
this peculiar building is to be
found in Varro’s birdhouse at
Casium, in the Via Latina; in
Nero’s Domus Aurea with a
“… circular room that
continuously turned on its own
axis, just as the world does …”;
in the Anticitera’s machine, an
extraordinary computer that
operated as a lunar and solar
calendar; in the Tower of the
Winds in Athens, an anaphoric
clock that marked the rise of
Hadrian’s observatory in Villa Adriana, Tivoli
the stars or the appearance of
the signs of the zodiac on the horizon. The planetary symbols were shown inside Hadrian’s
cupola by a series of revolving bronze armillary spheres (the thin tilted bands which were
used by Hipparcus and the ancient astrologers to observe the skies), whilst underneath there
was the zodiac starry band; today all that remains is a small frieze underneath it with the
symbol of Capricorn, repeated many times.

189
Far away, many centuries later, another extraordinary ruler, with the same nature as
Hadrian’s, “… who freed himself through a frenetic building activity; who sunk in a deep
melancholy to explode sometimes in a disproportionate rage, with an inexhaustible thirst
for knowledge and for understanding philosophy, but above all for satisfying the impulse to
transcribe in stone his own visions and the most esoteric messages …” (8) (Petruccioli). He
built a similar place to satisfy his cognitive, but also magic and ritual needs. This was Akbar,
the Mughal emperor, who, in the 16th century, in India, build in his palace in Fatehpur Sikri
the mysterious Anup Talao, “the incomparable pool” at the centre of which he would retire
on a platform covered by a planetary canopy and he would meditate and also show himself
as a cosmocrator, the lord of the world, in a manner very akin – it can be surmised – to that
of Hadrian’s in his own very similar palace.

Again in Rome, in the 17th Century, another great man echoed similar concepts by creating
an architecture which was the concrete expression of a cosmic vision. This was Francesco
Borromini who had heard of the wonders of the East from his patrons at the Propaganda
Fide and who had certainly studied with fervent attention the ruins of Hadrian’s villa: in
1644 he showed cardinal Pamphilij a project for a villa where “… from the windows of the
side walls one could see many of the things in the sky which are taught by mathematicians

190
with the aid of spheres. The whole building should in fact be a study of practical
mathematics…” (9)

Marguerite Yourcenar makes Hadrian say “… I once offered to the constellations the
sacrifice of a whole night it happened during a crossing of the Syrian desert. Lying down and
with my eyes wide open, for a few hours casting aside all human preoccupations, I
abandoned myself from dusk to dawn to that world of crystals and flames. This was the
most beautiful of my journeys… I have tried to comply with the divine in many different
ways… I still ignore what happens behind that dark curtain. But the Syrian night represents
my conscious part of immortality.” (10)

Multiple Personality Disorder
By
T Stokes, U.K.

T Stokes is known worldwide as the “Consultant Palmist” & is regarded as one of the
finest palmists in the West. He has many years of combined practice and blending from an
array of diagnostic skills coupled to 10 years training in the Harry Edwards school of spirit
mediumship and guidance, and accessing the wisdom of the multimedical and multispiritual
arenas of the Indo/Pak subcontinental energy flow disciplines such as Hasthricka and Il-
Mul-Kaff, have meant a sharpening and honing of clairvoyant skill ranges which can take a
subject from pre-birth through the main events of the life, to the present day. Palms read by

A beautiful young girl in her early thirties turned up at the alternatives clinic without
an appointment, and presented with some strange symptoms screaming she needed an
urgent exorcism.
My immediate colleague said do whatever is necessary to quieten her down and get her out
of here.
While I was trying to take some coherent notes, she exhibited hysterical behavior in several
different voices and accents, this is called “xenoglossy” and the psychologist in me said she
was manifesting behavior patterning from some early trauma, while the psychic in me said
this bore many of the hallmarks of genuine spirit possession.
In backing off and telling her I would study her notes and call her back in a couple of days,
she began flirting with me in quite a provocative manner, the sexual content here,
powerfully charged with its youthful energies, made me realize that she had learnt at an
early stage how to manipulate men, and this suggested symptoms of early sexual abuse.
Desperate people often form gripping relationships with their therapists in a needy manner
with a deep sexual nucleus.
The difficulty is, these people have often experienced through their lives much
Abandonment anxiety, and for a therapist to also abandon them can further enhance their
pain.
They can see you as the lifeline to a drowning person, and they can cling to you in the throes
of their torment, and will do literally anything to maintain that bond.
With early sexual abuse similar symptoms are expressed as with studies on those tortured
from both the Cold War and Guantanamo Bay, they create in their minds a special place
where they go, when the awful acts are committed on them, over a period of time the
separate energies form a nucleus of their own and can in some instances become separate
personalities, the main difficulties with exorcists is to decipher the basic crux of the
problem,
Is it outside spirit intervention ? or is it internal multiple personality syndrome?
192
Or is it both?
The one determining factor is that these people are split apart, and getting them back
together can be a long process, the thing they crave is love and acceptance of who they are,
accepting is the easy part, and the love we offer must be paternal only.

193
There is a trend just now for rejecting Freud’s basic premise of memory repression, many
practitioners now claim it is an impossibility for a childhood memory to become buried,
then come to consciousness in later life with all its original clarity and focus.
The mid 1990s saw particularly in the U.S.A a series of “recovered memory syndrome”
scandals, where psychologists would talk patients into the belief constellations of childhood
abuse, often involving large financial payouts, these memory manipulations were labeled in
many cases, “Iatrogenic” or moulded by doctors themselves, certainly, much further
research work is needed to avoid future mistakes.
The inability of many women to establish or maintain a relationship, has long been one of
the inner hallmarks of early trauma, yet the very inner fabric of women is changing, women
no longer have to mate for life, contraception, online dating, workplace equality and the
decline in anti-women feeling in religious philosophies, has meant new statistics show
women have four distinct stages in emotional development.
These four life stages, from a footloose 20 year old, to the fifty something search for a
toyboy, show middle age is seen as the time of greatest freedom.
These distinct life stages display the early loves, the need to settle and procreate, the years of
work and financial struggle, then the time when children leave and real freedom beckons,
allowing women to discover then who they really are.
At any stage, problems may become deeply entrenched in the emotional theatre, and it is
these which we see increasingly in alternative practice.
The clinic is very forward looking and we have found spiritual therapy to play an important
part in the healing cycle, this is a controversial aspect with many professionals who have to
deal with those battle damaged on the long path of life's journey.
However, in this girls case, she responded well and come to terms with the childhood abuse,
and in a mixture of counseling, gentle exorcism and spiritual healing, I was thrilled to hear
our beautiful friend goes swimming once a week and is no longer afraid to show her body,
she tells us she is studying to be an architect and comes into the clinic each Friday lunchtime
and makes us tea and biscuits.
We believe in an open door policy where a welcome is an essential part of the bonding
process of healer and the healed.
Let’s look at her handprint;
(1) The open life and head, is a sign that the thinking is unconnected to the life force,
information is impulsively absorbed with distortions, their expectations are inaccurate and
inconsistent with reality leading to various minor anxiety conditions.
The head line also vears low toward the wrist with offshoots, depicting Multiple Personality
Syndrome or depressive disorders.
(2) Curved line cutting off the hypo-thenar eminence, always seen in Attention Deficit
Disorders and occasionally identified as an allergy line, e.g. diet or medication.

194
(3) Slightly curving Mercury finger alongside an Apollo finger thin throughout its length,
depicts a traumatic latency period maternal experience, which leads to an inability to be
passionately involved in the sexual experience, and later to body dysmorphia as in anorexia,
physique hypochondria or body building. This compounded with a flat Venus mount, and
tightly swept in life line, showing a maternal rejection factor and life energy difficulties.
The mother would probably been emotionally inarticulate or have arrested development,
this coupled to low set Mercury finger deeply enhancing the abandonment anxiety with
issues of trust.
(4) The fate line with 3 branches to the headline, is known as the sign of "the temple" and
tells that mysticism or spirituality in the mid thirties, will become a major life focus.
Tibetan palmistry calls the low set bent Mercury finger, coupled to open lines of life and
head with the headline drooping, as the "Serpents Tongue" because it brings such problems.
In short a difficult hand, in a hauntingly beautiful woman.

The Mayonnaise Jar


Contributed By
Carole McMechan, Canada

When things in your life seem, almost too much to handle,


When 24 Hours in a day is not enough,
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class


And had some items in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly,
He picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar
and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students, if the jar was full.


They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured


them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles rolled into the open Areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire
contents into the jar, effectively
filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter subsided,


'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things - family,
children, health, Friends, and Favorite passions –
Things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, Your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, house, and car.

The sand is everything else --The small stuff.


196
'If you put the sand into the jar first,' He continued,
'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff,
You will never have room for the things that are important to you.

So...
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Play With your children.
Take time to get medical checkups.
Take your partner out to dinner.

There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

'Take care of the golf balls first --


The things that really matter.
Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled.


'I'm glad you asked'.

It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.'

Please share this with other "Golf Balls"


I just did......
