Tennis star Serena Williams was born on 26 September 1981 at Michigan, USA when Aries Ascendant was rising in her vedic Astrology Birth Chart. She is the youngest of five daughters’ family; and started playing tennis at the age of 4. She was coached by her father Richard Williams, who decided to personally coach and groom his five daughters to play tennis. Serena Williams won her first grand slam title in US Open Tennis Championship 1999; and since then, there is no looking back. Regarded as one of the best tennis player ever, Serena is the only woman player to have won the $40 million prize money. What makes her horoscope so interesting is that she is having the so-called ‘Kal Sarpa Dosha’ in her natal birth chart; and still managed to achieve such a high position in sports, which one can only dream about. And, the logic behind non applicability of Kal Sarpa Dosha has also been explained in my article over here.
Desh, Kaal and Patra (Place, Time and Individual) are the very basic principles of Astrology; and, have a great say in determining the actual course of action in one’s life. Therefore, besides the planetary disposition of your horoscope; the timing of marriage also depends upon self interest and inclination to get married. No planet or its influence is going to hold your hand and get you married; but the best can be expected, is the suitable opportunities and planetary support to get married within specific time frame. During earlier times, when the social norms and culture used to have a significant influence and/or compulsion (to get married as early as possible) in the life of a common man, it was comparatively easier to identify and predict the marriage timing very precisely. However, nowadays things have changed considerably;
Are you looking for suitable life partner? If yes, this article may provide some good hints about what to look in to the horoscope of your life partner. Melapak or Guna Milaap is the most commonly used concept; wherein the compatibility of a marital match is analyzed on the basis of Moon’s disposition in respective horoscopes. It does serve some purpose; however, I personally prefer to give more value to the planetary influences on the individual horoscope.
Stability, dependability and trust are the prime elements of any relationship; and, this is what one should and would be looking in his/her marital relationships. The other factors like health, job, status, personality and family back ground etc. are also important; but become quite useless if one cannot experience stability and trust in marriage.
Apropos to my previous article about marriage and relationships; I am trying to share and explain my understandings and observations regarding timing of marriage. In Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra (Chapter 20), some planetary combinations (Yogas) are mentioned about the marital age. However, exact identification of the marriage giving Dasa is not mentioned in BPHS. In tenth chapter of Phaladeepika though, Sage Mantreshawara has given some hints regarding the marriage time. In this article, I will try to explore and explain these Yogas for the benefit of the reader.
First, I will be taking a few verses mentioned in Chapter 20 of Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra. The Venus is considered as general significator for wife and marriage in female horoscopes; while for female Horoscope, this role is assigned to Jupiter. Therefore, wherever the Sage mentioned the role of Venus as significator for wife and marriage – it is to be taken as Jupiter for female horoscope.
Marriage and relationships are the most important aspect of our life. Having a co-pilot in life is not only necessity but it does give a purpose to our life to make better aims. In Brihad Parashara Hora Shashtra, Sage Parashara has provided many combinations and planetary dispositions to be considered for judging a horoscope in this regard. In this article, I will try to offer my understanding of some of the planetary combinations related to marriage and relationships.
Rule One – Marriage and relationships: Chapter 20 of BPHS contains some basic planetary positions to be considered while analyzing a horoscope in terms of marriage and relationships. The first rule says that if the lord of seventh house placed in 6th, 8th or 12th house and is not in its own or exalted zodiac sign – it will cause the native’s wife to be sickly and suffering from disease.
Apropos to the vedic astrology predictions already given for India horoscope:
At present, the last pratyantar of Rahu is operational in Sun/Jupiter Bhukti, and from 13 July 2012 onwards, the Antardasa of Saturn will start. The transit position of Mahadasa lord Sun is somewhat better in Gemini zodiac sign (second house of India’s Natal Chart). However, the transit position of Antardasa (sub-period) lord Jupiter is not much auspicious. Jupiter is still making an inauspicious union with Venus and debilitated Ketu; and it will be after 31 July 2012 that Venus will come out of the transit affliction of Jupiter and Ketu. In addition to this, another inauspicious transit union of Saturn + Mars is also operational in Virgo zodiac sign in fifth house of India horoscope.
Famous American Actress and Model, Lindsay Dee Lohan was born on 2 July 1986 at New York, USA when Taurus zodiac sign was rising in her Vedic Astrology Birth Chart. Born to Dina Lohan and Michael Lohan, Lindsay has three younger siblings. She started working quite early, and when she was just three years of age, Lindsay worked as a model for Eileen For Agency. And, till date Lindsay Lohan has worked in more than 60 Television Commercials as Model. Lohan made her acting debut in 1996 in Television Drama, “Another World”. Her first movie was, “The Parent Trap (1998)”, wherein Lindsay played double role of twin daughters. The movie was a bit hit, followed by leading roles of Lindsay Lohan in Freaky Friday (2003), Mean Girls (2004), and Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005). Lindsay Lohan is the youngest person to host an MTV Movie Award show, and also the first host to win an award.
Two major transit changes are going to take place during the month of May 2012 that is transit Jupiter will be changing its zodiac sign to Taurus (Vrishabha) from Aries (Mesha); and the transit Saturn will be transiting back to Virgo (Kanya) zodiac sign on temporary basis. Saturn will remain in Virgo zodiac (Kanya Rashi) for around three months, specifically from 16 May 2012 to 3 August 2012. The applicable Vimshottari Dasa on India’s horoscope is Sun/Jupiter Bhukti (24 September 2011 to 12 July 2012). And, this is based upon 15 August 1947 time 12:00:40 at Delhi. A difference of 40 seconds is incorporated during matching of the events with India’s horoscope.
Wealth and finance have always been the focal point of human life, nevertheless, since past few decades the need has increased significantly. In earlier times, specifically in India, people didn’t require to struggle too much to ensure mere survival. Though, there were financial issues to the people, but yet things were not so much difficult as compared to current time. Today, we rarely find a day when no-one is died or collapsed due to financial constraints. And, the role of planets and houses in vedic astrology needs to be properly judged and adjusted accordingly so that one can address the specific financial aspects of a horoscope; and give meaningful guidance ( in place of feeding with useless junk comprising the information about how many Raj Yogas are present in the horoscope). It makes me feel sad and painful, when I see people struggling and suffering from financial issues. And despite vedic astrology being a very effective art/tool, the astrologers are not capable of addressing the issues effectively. In fact, it has become some kind of fashion of every one just jumping into Astrology without doing the proper homework and claiming their understanding of the Vedic scriptures. Some times, the presentation generated through money supersedes the correct knowledge.
