As per vedic astrology, Abhinav Bindra is born in Gemini Ascendant (Mithuna Lagna); and, currently passing through Mahadasa (main period) of Rahu (north node). Vedic astrology readings, for the year 2014, can be considered promising for Abhinav Bindra; although, he may also be required to make equivalent strong efforts with persistence. Some inauspicious planetary influence may also be there; like, during 2014, Abhinav Bindra may suffer from injuries and health issues and the financial matters may remain volatile. Besides, he may remain vulnerable towards disputes, conflicts and legal issues too.
At present, Mahadasa (main period) of the Sun is operational on vedic horoscope of India. Currently operational Antardasa (sub period) of Mercury will be over in April 2014; and, from May 2014 onwards, dasa/bhukti of Sun/Ketu will be operational on Indian horoscope. Unfortunately, things aren’t looking much auspicious and favorable for India during 2014; and, this is looking to be a difficult period in most aspects including economy, politics, administration, foreign relationships, agriculture and manufacturing.
The primary and very apparent reasons behind this apprehension are current and upcoming transits of Jupiter and Nodes (Rahu and Ketu); and, operating Antardasa (sub-period) of weak planets. The natal disposition of the Jupiter and Mars is also not much auspicious for growth and safety. Therefore, when these already disturbed dispositions are activated via transit and during sub-periods of malefic, cruel or weak planets, the damage is significant.
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.
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.
As per vedic astrology readings, currently the Mahadasa of the Sun is operational on India Horoscope. The antardasa of Jupiter in Sun’s Mahadasa will remain effective till 10 July 2012; and, thereafter, Sun/Saturn bhukti will commence from 11 July 2012 to 22 June 2013. There will be two prominent transit changes taking place in 2012; first Saturn entering Virgo in retrograde motion and then coming back in Libra, second, Jupiter changing its transit zodiac sign to Taurus. The transit of Mars is also looking quite prominent as during the first half of 2012, the transit Mars will remain in Leo zodiac sign. On the basis of planetary placement, dasa and transit; Vedic astrology predictions for India Horoscope are not very positive for overall aspects including politics, administration, general masses, climate, nature and economy.
Dhoni laments bad luck: Is it really bad luck, which has started chasing Dhoni or something else, which resulted into such poor performance and severe failure on the part of Indian Cricket Team? Well, I believe it to be the bad luck or misfortune. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the guy who made India proud just a few months ago; the coolest Captain and strong hitter of the ball is now failing to get hold of things without any logical reasons. The performance of the whole Indian Cricket Team (well almost whole team) started going down, players getting injured in the middle of the matches, wrong Umpiring decisions causing great setbacks and almost everything including the Weather God appears to be against Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
During the next week ( 5 September 2011 to 11 September 2011); three prominent transit changes will be taking place. The transit Mercury will be entering Leo zodiac on 5 September 2011. And, the transit Mars and Venus will enter their debilitation zodiac signs on 9th and 10th of September 2011 respectively. The Mars rules over seventh and twelfth houses; while Venus is the lord of first and sixth houses in Vedic Birth Chart of India.

The role and importance of family is well known to all of us and need no introduction. Family is the basic foundation unit of our society, which plays very important role in building up the overall life of a person. In vedic astrology horoscope, the second, fourth, seventh, ninth and tenth houses deal with main pillars of our family. Inter alia other things, the second house of vedic birth chart is related to family. And strength of second house and its lord is of paramount importance in deciding the happiness on account of family and status in life. In addition to this, the fourth and tenth houses of vedic horoscope are related with mother and father respectively. The ninth house of vedic horoscope rules over luck and fortune, hence, weakness and affliction on the part of ninth house is also not auspicious for well being of parents, specifically father.
The Neech Bhang Rajyoga means the cancellation of debilitated state of a planet. Usually, planets are considered weak, if they occupy their debilitated zodiac sign.
I stand to be corrected; but, I could not find any mention of Neech Bhanga Raj Yoga in Brihad Parashara Hora Shashtra. The Phala Deepika and Sarawali, however, do contain information about the planetary placement, wherein the strength is obtained by planets in their debilitation sign. There are many different and even controversial thoughts of eminent astrologers about the Neech Bhanga Raj Yoga. As per Phaladeepkia, some of the potent planetary placements, generating the Neech Bhang Raj Yoga are mentioned below:
