KASHMIR (Updated)
Today, 5 August 2019 has become a historic day in our history as something which could not be done in 70 years has taken shape now. Union Home minister Amit Shah has announced that Article 370 which grants special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be scrapped. He also announced that Jammu and Kashmir will no longer be a state and it will be bifurcated into two Union Territories— Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.  read more...
Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...

She knows some astrology and had some doubt whether hers was Vrischika lagna or Tula. She was confused about the ayanamsha to be used that was another question.

When such a case comes up note the prominent features of the horoscope and the dasha and antardasha of three or four past years, see the dasha antardasha in Vimshottari and Chara dasha and ask some striking question.

The lagna, Vimshottari dasha and Jaimini
karakas of people born at the same time will remain the same. To distinguish one from the other, divisional horoscopes need to be prepared. But as far as the person before you is concerned, first verify whether this horoscope is fitting into his/her pattern of life.

In 2004, it was dasha of Jupiter Mercury.
In Chara dasha it was the dasha of Vrisha and Kumbha. Atmakaraka is in Vrisha. It coincides with Jupiter-Mercury dasha in the eighth house. The antardasha starting from Kumbha is significant. Kumbha is eighth from Karakamsha in Karka. Then the antardasha of Makara and then of Dhanu do not seem to be happy period in her life.

Remember the warning
I have given repeatedly given about the Dhanu dasha. Dhanu is also sixth from Karakamsha and eighth from Atmakaraka-- dangerous in three ways. From 2003 Rahu and Saturn were transitting in Vrisha and Mithuna. All this appeared to be bleak.

Yes. She had a fatal disease in this period.

Medical astrology ? What could this be she asked me ? I said that I cannot say and do not believe in medical astrology as all the doctor students whom I asked to work on medical astrology has been hundred percent failures. They only learnt from me from the period of onset of sickness and its outcome and even wrote articles or books. Their own contribution to medical astrology is a big zero. Then there are other non-medical astrologers reeling off wild “researches” on various diseases particularly diabetes and heart attack. All these are untested and unproven mostly wild and boastfully loud pieces paraded as researches.

She told me about the disease and she survived is what she told me. You can even try Dwisaptati Sama Dasha on which Manoj Pathak has done excellent and original research. It was Rahu-Mars both in the seventh house with heaviest affliction with the added aspect of Saturn. Then other events can be verified as they will fall in a pattern in a sequence.

That is chara dasha and the seven karaka
scheme for you.

Ayanamsha lunatics

She had some confusion about ayanamsha.Use only Lahiri ayanamsha and do
not get lost in the lunacy of the claims of others about their ayanamsha which is unproven, untested and wild.

Remember government of India has settled this in 1956 and another meeting convened by the Human Resources Ministry had reapproved the Lahiri ayanamsha in March 1994 attended by Dr. Raman who had the mortification of seeing his ayanamsha being rejected by the entire gathering of panchanga makers of India attending that meeting. It was a three day conference which I had to conduct on the insistence of Dr. Raman and Pandit Sukhdeo Chaturvedi.

Dr Raman never uttered
a single word in all those three days in defence of his ayanamsha.

Then one day came a fellow with the
claim that he had discoverd a true ayanamsha and that Lahiri was wrong. He had looked sane till he started talking nonsense. I asked him to convince
a) a gathering of astrologers who
make panchangas and
b) the Human Resources Ministry which he has failed to do.
Addressing a gathering of students after
disturbing their classes is not the right approach to win a battle.

But how can a lunatic get convinced? But he pours his vituperation and shows his low upbringing. Like all lunatics he thinks that he is a genius and world is not listening to him.

A student had asked me once when I told about my encounters with “revolutionary ayanamsha propounders”, “ How many ayanamsha fanatics have you met ?’ My answer was at least five. Out of them the only to suffer financial loss was Dr.Raman but he did not abuse others who rejected his ayanamsha like the upstarts who keep springing up once in a decade.

Dr. Raman created enormous difficulties for me when he prescribed his books based on his ayanamsha for the astrology course I had shaped and was running! This was a tricky and devious way of trying to keep alive his ayanamsha after his death. This was Raman’s fourth attempt in five years between 1989 and 1994.

If you are doing astrology seriously you must be prepared to meet these ayanamsha lunatics somewhere or the other sometime or the other.

I told this woman that her lagna was Vrischika and that she should use only Lahiri
ayanamsha. Just hear the rantings of the ayanamsha lunatics if you cannot avoid them and forget it.
