Orderly Mind for Better Tomorrow

A south Korean who consulted me sought two clarifications against my observation on his chart: “Is being ambitious and dreaming a good future an illusion? You have talked about my inflated ego. Would it mean that I am groundless and an ungrateful brat?” There is nothing wrong in being ambitious and nursing dreams. In fact, dreams are necessary for reaching heights one is capable of, since they serve a focus to reach an objective. Since {…}

Watch Your Mind to Ward of Evil

A lady concerned about continued struggle in her husband’s life, came asking the other day: “What is wrong in his destiny that he has been subject to unwanted twists and turn in his career all through his life? So far, he lost his job nothing less than a dozen times. In between, many a times he has to be out of job also. He is honest, truthful, and hardworking and yet, he has to suffer. {…}

Of Habit tendencies and Stress

Recent annual Gallup poll suggests that 55% of Americans are subject to stress, anger, and worry, compared to the global average of 35%, following negative experiences they undergo on various counts.

Saturn’s Retrogression

Saturn acquired retrograde motion yesterday and shall remain so till September 18, when it regains its forward motion. Retrogression of a planet offers opportunity to self-reflect upon areas it naturally signifies. Saturn signifies overall Karma. During Saturn’s retrogression, memory impressions from the past keep flashing in mind again and again. We need to reflect upon them, identify and acknowledge fault lines if any in our approach, and then make necessary corrections. Purge all inconsequential thought-imprints. {…}

Guru-Disciple Dynamic

Guru-disciple dynamic The other day, someone came asking: “Can a Guru change a person’s samskara – inherent mental tendencies?” Well, a Guru doesn’t use a magical wand to change disciple’s mind-traits. He would rather help you remould yourself. He, in the first place, shows a being’s mirror image. Second, he triggers spiritual seed in a being, which is there in everybody, but in large majority lies dormant. Third, he offers lessons in how to self-reflect {…}

Jupiter becomes retrograde

Jupiter has acquired retrograde motion today and shall remain so till August 11 this year. Let me make it clear that a planet never goes into retrograde motion. But when it would be farthest from the Sun, it is little slowing down of planet, which in apparent terms looks like being left behind relative to the Sun. So, in applied terms, it may mean slowing down in so far as realisation of fruits of efforts {…}

Let things happen when naturally due

Last year, a lady worried about her younger sister’s marriage, came asking: “Some pundits say that my sister’s marriage is cursed as both Jupiter and Rahu occupy angular houses. For redressal, they are suggesting some belief driven puja, that may cost heavy. Please tell me if she is really cursed, and if so, what is the way forward?” At the outset, let me assure you that your sister’s marriage is promised but is unduly delayed. {…}

Rahu’s transit in Gemini sign

April 05, 2019. Is Rahu so horrific that its transit into Gemini sign shall be adversely affecting two third of the population for the next one year and half during its stay there?

Can Astrology be relied?

March 31, 2019 Worried mother of an errant son came questioning the relevance of Astrology the other day. “Seeing my son’s chart most of the astrologers had predicted that he was destined to earn a position of public eminence and make us proud. They banked their prediction on Gajakeshari yoga being formed in the lagna – Conjunction of benevolent Jupiter and mind signifying Moon. Citing further astrological dictum, they stated that if ever Jupiter occupies {…}
