Mouni Baba ( 3rd March came the news of the death of Mouni Baba, three days after the mahasamadhi of Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati on the last day of February. Jayendra Saraswati, born in 1935, was 82 years when he took samadhi. In the case of Mouni Baba we never knew his age as no one knew it and it was guessed that he was ninety three years old when he took samadhi though some newspapers said that he was 108 years old then.


As the Lok Sabha elections are drawing closer, corridors of power are replete with political discourses. Against this backdrop, astrologers too are busy making predictions, according to their own calculations. Whatever the political pundits might calculate about the formation of the next government, all the astrologers have one common prediction that Narendra Modi’s stars are shining and still the strongest, and according to planetary position, Narendra Modi can once again become the Prime Minister of the country.

She rang me up and asked me for an urgent consultation. Both in Shillong and Calcutta and later in Delhi I got horoscopes of people who were doubtful about their birth details, having lost their original horoscopes during their migration in 1947 from the riot torn areas of what now are Pakistan and Bangladesh. It was so in her case also. But the memory of someone in the family helped her retrieve her birth details is what she told me.

In the case of women, most people in northern India rarely kept correct birth details those days when she was born. A woman was a “disposable commodity” who would enter her husband’s house and could be neglected unlike
the boy, has been and continues to be the favoured child of the family. It is the view of many even now.

Was the horoscope correct?

Karakamsha lagna is Simha and Putrakaraka is Mercury with Jupiter showing pure inclination towards humanities, not science during her student days.

Before any prediction is given it becomes the primary consideration. In such cases, just note down the birth details as are passed on and do not indulge in exercise of correcting it which can be done

The birth horoscope and the navamsha showed either a bad marriage or no marriage. Not married she said.

What had she studied is what I was interested in finding out myself without her telling me as that is invariably a good starting point of the verification of a horoscope.

Moon, an artistic planet, unafflicted in the eleventh house aspects the fifth house. The fifth lord, Mars is with Sun and Venus. Karakamsha lagna is Simha and Putrakaraka is Mercury with Jupiter showing pure inclination towards humanity in her studies.

What should the predominant influence of fifth house and its lord with artistic planets mean? Education in fine arts ? That was the question I asked.

She had done MA (music) she said.

Was it classical I asked because of the influence of Jupiter on the putrakaraka.

Yes, classical Hindustani music she said.

But does she do any business ? Yes she said, in clothes.

The dashamansha will work. I can proceed to give her some predictions on this horoscope without correcting her
birth time.
