HAS KARNATAKA GOT A STABLE GOVERNMENT AT LAST ?
Sensational headlines in newspapers, an overpassionate coverage by television channels of the Karnataka election and, subsequently the cabinet formation after winning confidence motion, was almost made to look like national elections. Repeatedly it was discussed by friends for nearly two weeks. I decided to look at relevant available horoscopes. The person sworn in as the chief minister was H.D.Kumaraswamy ( to be referred to as HDK.)

MODI'S STAR SHINE (UDAY INDIA)

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.

ASTROLOGICAL GIMMICKS 1

A student of astrology asked me how could he recognize frauds among astrologers. I said that it was for him to find out and not depend on my experience. I told him , when he repeatedly asked me the question, to keep in mind the following:

Daily, Weekly, Monthly Predictions

When the astrologer is anxious to give , daily, weekly or monthly predictions for each of the twelve rashis dividing humanity into twelve groups of fifty crores (five hundred millions) rest assured that he is willing to commit a “mass fraud”, as an editor of an English newspaper put it once. If he does it in television programmes and also writes it anywhere rest assured that he would compromise any sacred principle of jyotisha only to gain publicity.

Also see if he has any website where he displays it boldly. He has killed his conscience and is still boastful with his self proclaimed greatness.
This shows how the astrologer wants to become a pop astrologer and do marketing.

Kala Sarpa Yoga

Now find out, if he talks of Kaal Sarpa Yoga and without analysing your horoscope for its correctness, straightaway gives a cheap and easy analysis saying that KSY is responsible for it all and offers to get shanti done for it.

Unverified Horoscopes

Now see, if takes up the horoscopes of big people and makes big predictions. I had faced lot of embarassment when people asked me about Pramod Mahajan and one television insisted on my giving a prediction immediately on the available Mithuna lagna. Why were they anxious to do it without verifying bio facts ?

A student collected many of these predictions from published newspaper predictions and also website predictions. I was surprised.And to predict that he would be the prime minister or president! Is that astrology ?

I wrote on my website

“ It is not the first time that many astrologers have claimed that they have got the horoscopes from most reliable "family sources". Majority of them stuck to Mithuna lagna and predicted recovery.

But what a student passed on to me with Vrisha lagna appealed to me as correct and I privately predicted to friends that it was not a case of recovery and, at most, it could drag on only for a week or fortnight. I saw no chance of recovery at all. It is what I had written to Pradeep on 24 April.

(Written in parts between 25 April and 2 May)

Remedies: Upayacharyas

The commonest symptom of recognition is the haste with which an astrologer prescribes remedies and makes money. Instead of calling them jyotishaacharyas call them upacharyas.

Saturn the Publicity Agent ?

In recent months, some astrologers have been attracting attention saying that Saturn does not damage at all, ever. It is all the result of karmas and Saturn has nothing to do it is their explanation. Giving such a disbalanced explanation so glibly brings to the astrologer great publicity. What they do after this is a story better be not told.

Saturn has become a publicity agent for them, not a graha anymore.

There is a good looking female anchor not knowing astrology and the “Saturn expert” reeling off his predictions blaming all planets other than Saturn which pleases the listeners perhaps.
