The History of Astrology dates back to thousands of years. The source of astrology has a confounding origin but Raison d’être, it is said that the Babylonians are ascribed with the foundation of the subject Astrology. Few views that, it was the indo-european people who during the 3rd millennium BC have made roots in the calendrical systems. Unfathomable it may be, but everyone is enthralled by the wonderful power of this mathematical clairvoyance.

Vedic Astrology is one which I read and have found that it has an augury backed by Vedic scientific predictions. A vedic astrology chart is divided into twelve houses with different meanings. Each house has its own connotations with disparate significance on life’s arenas. A reader read these charts and analyses past, present and future happenings based on the cosmic position of planets and try to find solutions to these problems with a fad.

While many fortune tellers have their focus on life and herald with their proffering prognostications, I find my interest in motivation & inspiration entrepreneurship. I feel superfluous in highlighting negativity; instead it’s interesting to work on one’s best positive traits. That’s what ameliorates your life and makes good things happen.

Astrology can let one know about the positive areas of your life and makes you work towards it. This subject helps one understand the sectors in life in which one need to act. Many a times, we work on those aspects of life where we struggle for years and somehow this sap our entire energy. However, we block our inner consciousness and seldom work on areas where we have our inner talents to blossom. Hence, there are problems in career, profession, business and entrepreneurship. A self introspection on our inner talents and understanding the souls transcend into the abyss of one’s strengths, acquired from these cosmic planets will establish deeper meaning to one’s existence in this world. Astrology can help to understand these facts based on which one can pace one’s energy in those areas.

Globally there are many humans who have diverse types of problems and live a disquietude life. Some expresses, while some are stoic. However, I am of the view that Astrology with the movement of planets can help one to understand oneself better for which one can work on their relationship, career, profession, entrepreneurship and other areas of life.

The world of vedic astrology is a never ending study and with continued research and cogitation one can be illuminated by the ancient vedic knowledge. I am doing the same everyday and hope to help billions through this ancient art.

It was dark and as I moved home from my office, tension gripped me for my next day office assignments, which takes much of my private time. I had a strong aversion to these tasks which makes me shorten my personal time with concomitant anxiety, tensions and another related phenomenon. This is not a censorious talk based on the fact that I am a workaholic. Understanding this, one day I came across an unknown citizen of this mother Earth selling Tea in one corner of the globe who was equally tensed and with a smiling face managed his ‘own business’. Speaking with this human incognito, I understood, what does it mean to be an Entrepreneur, even though you are in stress, you actually work for your OWN organization or business.

I was listening to one entrepreneur a few days back and his struggling tales about small business. Brooding on his unhappy thoughts about job and his stress, he started his own small business based on his inner talent.

As per the Global Entrepreneurship Index Rankings, United States of America, ranks first followed by Switzerland and Canada. India has to work a lot to infuse the concept of Small Business & Entrepreneurship in millions. It is well known that enterprise is a crucial engine of economic growth and without enterprise and entrepreneurs, there would be less innovations and few new jobs. Instead of getting frustrated in a formidable job and colleagues, it is better to try with one’s entrepreneurship ventures.

In my earlier articles, I have described how to get motivated, the importance of 7th house in vedic astrology and also the importance of 1st house in vedic astrology. Today, let us discuss on the 12th house and its long- term effects for establishing yourself as a business human.  Among the various houses in a Vedic Horoscope, the 12th house is considered as the house for confinement, secluded places, high expenses, enlightenment, Far away places, lands, asceticism, Hospitals, Imprisonment etc. While many articles in ancient books also states that the 12th house is for wastage, stingy, sole, quietus, Restrictions, Expenses, Extra Marital Affairs, Left Eye etc.

Many have a premonition that 12th house is a house which is about expenses, confinement and is not good. To some extent its true, however personally after reading over the years, I understood that this house is one of the most opportune house for reversing one’s bad fortune into opportunities. In a way, entrepreneurship also states the same thing. It’s all about giving a trying and not to sit and lament. The problem is we want immediate gains, which do happen, when we apply for a job and get the salary in the next month. However, as per Elisabeth Kubler Ross, a Swiss American Psychiatrist, the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss and have found their way out of those depths.

12th house in Vedic astrology plays a great part in one’s life and tend to do expense in those areas which the planet of 12th house controls. I have seen in many horoscopes that those having their 12th house lord as Saturn having Aquarius Ascendant are either in non-profits helping people or are political figures based on their interaction with masses. These people however, spends almost their entire money into construction activities due to planet Saturn. Let’s analyse a chart whose 12th house from Ascendant is zodiac Capricorn. The sign Capricorn is a sign which is described as a goat in western astrology and in the Indian tradition it is taken as a crocodile with the face and neck of a deer. Hard work, practicality and prudence are the key words to describe this sign ruled by Lord Saturn. Since 12th Sign is Capricorn and 10th house from Ascendant is Scorpio, its understood that the person may take up a challenging job as detective, CID, Police, Military Intelligence etc. If Planet Mercury sits with Sun in this house of Scorpio, the native may also take up Lectureship as per vedic astrology.

So, one may think that the name and fame of the individual will be due to the job and to some extent, it may be true, however, if the human can go forward with helping others in politics or connecting with the masses in various forms, the same person’s name can cross boundaries of districts, states and countries based on the position of Saturn.

By the same logic and out of my understanding, I have seen many people becoming World Famous because of 12th house combinations since those are the things which you love to do and like spending on them. Expense means not only financial expense, it also means expense of energy. So, if you have to make your hobby into entrepreneurship, then do expense of energy for the 12th house activities. However, 12th house activities take time and puts forward innumerable challenges and if you can overcome the same, your name and fame crosses boundaries.


Let’s take another example of a writer who wrote on fantasy world and her books crossed borders. She struggled in her initial years to publish her book and no publisher wanted to publish the same from an unknown writer. Once the first book got published, her name and fame spread across countries with Hollywood movies made on her book.

Let’s analyse the Vedic Horoscope chart, which I obtained from one of the astrological websites. From the above chart it is observed that her ascendant is Libra and the 12th house from Lagna/Ascendant is is Mercury which is sitting in her 11th house of Leo along with the Moon. The planet of finances is situated in the 12th house of Mercury which also meant that apart from writing, she may have to lose her immediate family. Lets now focus only on her own venture that is ‘Writing Entrepreneurship’ and that is the 12th house.

Mercury rules her 12th house and with Mars sitting on the same, she will be prone to writing, but writing under challenges from her own family. She has to meet the challenge which can be emotional and yet focus out of great challenges to go on with her writings/communication skills. Finally successful, she established her name and fame as a writer. Now look at the 5th house from the ascendant, here planet Saturn is placed in the same sign of creativity, which states that are writings will be a treasure for the masses. That’s what happened with her.

When I was in Bangalore, India, I have seen in Newspaper reports that people were standing from 4 am to get the first copy of her book. Well, all these were not done in a day specially with the 12th house, which brings enormous challenges and obstacles, which ultimately leads to great success. So, spend some time with your hobby and inner talent as per your 12th house and one can start doing entrepreneurship on the same to move forward in life. When you focus on the 12th house, remember a quotation from Dita Von Teese, an famous Dancer that Some Days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to Experience sadness to know happiness and I remind myself that not everyday is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!

Entrepreneurship or doing your own business is a wonderful thing as the society can meet many of their needs through wonderful innovations which you made and the world will remember you for the wonderful contributions you did for your future generations.

As the world grows, so is communication. In many countries earlier, people use to send messages through horses, birds, messengers and through telegrams. As the world moved ahead, we post letters through Post Offices and Couriers. Today in this high communication small world, we do not have to post letters, as its just a ‘click’ away from the other person. With Social Media, emails and other electronic forms of messages, we not only send our thoughts in seconds but also speak to the individual live!

What an innovation boom, where we can speak and see another person through social media in just a ‘click’! In astrology all sorts of communication are due to the astrological planet Mercury. That’s why people having an excellent Mercury position in the Lagna chart are great Orators. We just listen to these speakers and feel like as if the communication should go on and on…

Mercury is the fastest planet in the solar system and moves in greater speed than any other planets and hence the natives with well placed Mercury can think fast and make indelible work for society through their great ideas. Mercury is the smallest and innermost planet in the Solar System. Its orbital period around the Sun of 87.97 days and is the shortest of all the planets in the Solar System. Mercury, the messenger of the Gods is named after a Roman Deity. Mercury orbits the Sun within Earth’s orbit and never exceeds 28 degree away from the planet Sun. When viewed from Earth, this proximity to the Sun means the planet can only be seen near the western or eastern horizon during the early evening or early morning.

Mercury represents many sectors starting from Trade, Communication, Intellect and all forms of write-ups etc, but the most important thing that this planet represents is about Clue’s to one’s problems. A well-placed Mercury will provide one with the necessary types of intellect through which one gets over situations and that’s where one comes out in flying colour. Mercury provides sudden ideas based on which one moves ahead in life. Suppose, you are into a job for many years and struggling to make a mark and suddenly, one moment, you find that an idea that made you think differently, helped you to do things unique and thus move ahead in life. Well, to my experience there can be two planets attached in such types of phenomenon’s i.e planet Uranus and Rahu. These planets provide sudden thoughts which leads to great innovations.

But there is a difference between the thoughts shared by Planet Rahu and Planet Uranus with that of Planet Mercury. The basic difference lies in the fact that Planet Mercury may provide Ideas which can make you get success in your daily life, either in your career or business, but Planet Rahu produces a thought, which changes the world and so is with Uranus. Hence, Planet Mercury plays a very important role in one’s life as it’s the giver of IDEAS and intelligence. It shows the way forward in difficult times. There are many humans whose Planet Mercury is not in good position and struggles to get more of life, even if they may have the best education, qualification and schooling. If you have to move ahead in life, strengthen your planet Mercury in the basic horoscope chart. These can be done by loving environment, the greenery, connecting yourself with Nature, breathing in pure air (by that I mean, Air free from pollution), Understanding your connect with this Mother Earth etc.

Planet Mercury plays a very important part in one’s life as it rules the nervous system. Hence by strengthening one’s Mercury one can also strengthen ones decision making process and thus move ahead in life. Thank you for taking your time and reading this article. I look forward to your comments, if your time permits.

There was a time, when the world population was less and it was easy to get job as per one’s choice. Not many people had to do a job, since most people had other means to collect money through farming, intellectual paper publishing, providing one’s property from rents etc. The basic necessities use to be available at less cost and life was easy. So, you have time to cheer with your known friends then, have time to drink and relax near a lake to see albatross, take part in mass celebrations, see theatres and relax with country songs. It was then and today, as I write, life has become fast.

Some are of the view that the Global Human Population growth amounts to around 83 million annually or 1.1 % per year. The Global population has grown from 1 billion in 1800 to 7.6 billion in 2017. It is expected to keep growing and estimates have put the total population at 8.6 billion by mid-2030. In recent centuries, human population has increased significantly. So, an increase in population bloom have led to shortage of food, scarcity of fresh water, deficiency of energy and less jobs. These has led to alternate source of income by entrepreneurship. Career and Professional Astrology is one of the most interesting, complicated subject which I have dealt with as these depends on various factors and divisional charts as per Vedic astrology.

As per Vedic Astrology, the tenth house from a Vedic horoscope is considered to be the house of professional or career. So, generally, your life’s accomplishment and position is seen from these house. The astrological planets in this house were directly over your head, when you are born. That means if Planet Sun is sitting in your tenth house, that means you were born around 12 plus minus one hour in the afternoon, when the Sun was directly over-head. Planet Sun gets directional strength in this combination and the native receives acclamation in the society due to this position. Any Astrological Planets sitting in this house, no matter if it is friendly, unfriendly or neutral to the house lord will provide its best results until, not in aspect with malefic planets.

So, any change or upliftment of career takes place, when one is under the Maha-dasha or Anter-Dasha of the tenth house lord or the planets sitting in the tenth house. Also, if Saturn crosses over the 6th or 11th sign from the moon, there is an over-all upliftment in career as well as life. Jupiter having its aspect on the 10th house will also lead to betterment in the career. Rahu crossing over the tenth house will create difficulties in one’s career or profession. Here I am not speaking about business or entrepreneurship. Planet Rahu will uplift as well as disturb the tenth house during its transition. Planet Sun in the tenth house will likely to provide more strength to the tenth house except libra zodiac, where it gets debilitated. Moon in the tenth house or crossing the tenth house will lead to creativity and creative work in one’s career. Venus in the tenth house will likely to provide the native with an elegant office. Saturn crossing over the tenth house is likely to provide protection to the native from ups and downs. Planet Ketu crossing over the tenth house will lead to some daily routine jobs of same types like banking jobs, where it is almost the same thing repeated for each customer. Mars crossing over the tenth house will lead to difficulties in the profession, if not Mars is well placed in the tenth house like Aries Zodiac, Scorpio Zodiac, Leo Zodiac etc.

For analysis of the tenth house, one need to also analyse the 7th house from Ascendant, 6th house from the Ascendant, the D10 divisional chart and the strongest planet in one’s horoscope and if any planet has exaltation or debilitation in the chart. As I write about this subject, I will discuss career and profession in more details in my future astrological articles. All said I want to point one thing – Everyone has a tenth house and everyone has a 7th house. Life is full of opportunities, so what matters it how you try.

Thank you for taking your time and reading this article and look forward to your comments, if your time permits.

I was once travelling on flight for a meeting at Switzerland and on board, I met a fellow passenger who was in a melancholy mood. As the pilot announced for take-off, I was keeping a key interest on my fellow passenger since I was sitting on an Aisle seat and he was sitting at the window side. Just wanted to spend time, I thought of asking the gentleman as to which country He is travelling as we headed towards Zurich Airport. It was a stormy weather and We can feel the air turbulence as my fellow passenger sat in a sad temper. He replied that he is travelling to Canada for work and that he does not know when he will come back home.

Many people like him leave their homes and go to far off place for service. Well, to me it may not be necessary for one to travel that far, across one side of the earth for service. You can be the owner of your own business and can earn more than service. Well a service or job contract is just an assignment for getting money and working on other’s people’s dreams. Some may differ but most will agree that in service, one does not have freedom to do things in one’s own way. Business or any type of Entrepreneurship, using your hidden talents is the opportune investments one can do to yield success and glory. That is the reason, I repeatedly write about this subject, because wherever I went throughout the world, I see suffering and pain due to frustrations and depressions in service related jobs. Unemployment and competing again and again on just one service/job seat is sad and satisfactory for the person who gets through.

The question that often comes to my mind is why there is so much competition? Why we need to replicate the things, which you may not like? Duplication and Competition does not lead to good things in life and frustrations leads to depression. You are best of the best through your god-gifted talents acquired through the transition of the soul. Your Astrology chart supports you through motivation i.e 3rd house, 5th house i.e through creativity, 7th house i.e through business partnerships, 10th house i.e understanding your comforts in business set-ups and 1st house i.e through which you can involve yourself and your soul to do things, which your life wants. That’s the beauty of Vedic Astrology, which says many things about you and your birth.

See, everyone of us have these houses in a Vedic chart and that does not mean that we can not do Entrepreneurship. Some may have greater challenges due to difficult planetary positions of the 2nd house and 7th house, but no doubt your 3rd house from ascendant will lead and encourage you to success in the long run. If there is no struggle, there is no story to tell and a story crosses continent, when you establish your entrepreneurship ventures facing challenges.

Coming back to Astrology, lets analysis as to how your 7th house affects your business. Your 7th house holds the key to business and partnership and 1st house is 7th from the 7th house, so, the business type is understood from the 1st house. Let’s take an example, suppose one’s 7th house is Aries Sign for the Libra Ascendant, do that mean that the 7th house Fiery Mars will lead to entrepreneurship on subjects of fire & safety goods, however, if you analyse the chart, one can find that the native will have exceptional qualities to talk fiery speeches for motivation. That’s a great opportunity for business as a Motivational Speaker. The native can write on Inspiration, motivation and will have hidden talent to inspire masses in all the ways. Since the first house is Libra and the native can do a great presentation amongst public and masses. Libra zodiac will also fuel the individual with Venusian energy and as a entrepreneur on inspiration and motivation, the native will attract high class crowd.

All zodiacs have special abilities and everyone has special talents to turn life’s table in one’s favour. Simple things are the need to understand one’s hidden talent through astrology or through one’s effort and finding ways to help others, will automatically lead one to successful ventures. Every individual will have a different chart, different position of planets, different virtues due to different degrees of planetary combinations and hence doing things, same as others is not the solution.

So, when I landed at Zurich I said to my unknown friend, lets rejoice life through entrepreneurship and let’s make a better world by inspiring small business. Vedic Astrology is a tool and though there are many factors, which help in understanding more about entrepreneurship, a simple effort towards making one’s talent into entrepreneurship opportunities will activate one’s Vedic chart for finding oneself through small/large business.

Lord Saturn is a Karmic Planet. In the history of humankind, lord Saturn is being prayed for years and have been worshipped due to fear, for getting strength or to clear ones Karma (deeds). Every person in this world are generating Karma each moment. For example, when any one thinks negative about any person, a Karma is generated. Some expostulate and often are enthralled to do negative things for others. However, it is said that The Evil you do Remains with You, The Good you Do comes Back To You. Lord Saturn is dreaded over centuries but if one studies in detail, then one analyses that Lord Saturn provides results as per ones past Karma (deeds) in this life or previous lives. The way it is done is unknown and very formidable to understand. Lord Saturn gives results very slowly and steadily. However, it depends on the type of house (from the Ascendant/Lagna) it is placed and the nakshatra it is moving.

Given below is a chart of Ms Indira Gandhi as received from websites and it seems that She is born in Ashlesha Nakshatra with Saturn placed in Cancer.

Vedic Astrology Chart of Ms Indira Gandhi:


Let’s judge here as to What Saturn did for her by placing himself in the first house of Lagna or Ascendant. Saturn is the lord of her 7th house and 8th house from the ascendant. Now let us analyse Ashlesha Nakshatra, which is ruled by Mercury and its Lord is the Nagas (Serpent). So, Saturn sitting here makes Ms Indira Gandhi intelligent and through courage She was able to tackle her opponents. Here Saturn also makes one to cling to ones loved ones and She was not willing to leave her close associates from moving from her. Since Saturn is sitting in pada 2, Saturn is in full power which led her to be a great Mass Leader and a great orator since Ashlesha is ruled by Lord Mercury; the planet of communication. However, placement of Saturn made her work a lot and that led her to sleep for only few hours. Saturn here has some aspect in the 4th house, which separated her from her mother in the childhood days and Saturn’s position was also the reason for her mother not keeping well. Saturn also has aspects on her second house which led to problems in her immediate family. Tenth aspect of Saturn on her work life made her world famous with tenth lord in second house. However, Ashlesha is a difficult nakshatra and every planet situated here goes under major transformation. Hence, though she was a mass leader and there was major transformation in her career, she broke Congress to create Congress (I). These is a general prediction based on placement of Saturn, which is shared for better analysis on the subject.

Coming back to our topic Retrograde movement of Saturn in Sagittarius, its going to increase opportunities for various sectors like Water, Agriculture, Tea, Coffee, Cold drinks etc. Here it is to be remembered that Saturn is moving backward in the celestial sky. In his milky way galaxy, it is observed that when Earth moves faster than any other planet, it seems that the planet is moving backwards and that is observed as retrograde motion. The retrograde motion of a planet is an optical illusion when Planet Earth passes slower moving planets further out in the orbit.

Purva Ashadha Nakshatra is a nakshatra which is 13 degree 20 minutes to 26 degree and 40 minutes in Sagitatarius and is ruled by Lord Venus. The deity of this Nakshatra is Apas, the God of Water. So, when Saturn the karmic planet moves in backward position in this Karmic sign where Purva meaning first and Ashadha meaning not subdued, it indicates that these people irrespective of any challenges will move on. So, Saturn opens opportunities for these people now. On the other hand, Saturn the Karmic planet will test ones Karma here and by that, I mean Saturn will test one’s patience with anger. No matter, how much one provokes a native, it is wise to keep calm during this Saturn retrograde movement.

Saturn’s retrograde will be good for Sagittarius moon sign natives (as per vedic astrology) as they can now explore possibilities and will be able to get back their inner strength, Capricorn moon sign natives may need to travel and work more hard during this time as they are in sade satti (7 and a half years of movement of Saturn over their natal moon). Aquarius Moon sign people will have to face some difficult situation, in which they may not be happy. Pisces Moon sign natives may have to work harder in offices, Aries Moon sign may have again some issues with father or father like figures or may take up some spiritual travels, Taurus moon sign people may face some challenges regarding ancestral property and may become busy with their health more, Gemini Moon sign people may have some issues with business partnership or may have some issues with ones spouse, Cancer moon sign people may face some struggles in their career, life and food. Leo Moon Sign people may focus more on their creativity and written abilities, Virgo Moon Sign people may feel like coming back to their own home or may become nostalgic. They may also have issues with one’s mother. Libra Moon sign natives may have some issues with their cousins, younger siblings or on joining any other bigger organizations, Scorpio Moon Sign people may have problems again on their income, job and family. These Moon Signs are based on Vedic Astrology and not by date of birth as per Western Astrology.

Lord Saturn is likely to be in progressive on September 06, 2018 at 17.02 hrs.

In today’s world, we have often seen relationships getting strained due to various reasons. The prime concern may be ego, jealousy amongst partners, extra marital affairs etc. Most of the relations are based on a thin red line because the partners are not able to respect each other. So, basically the main point which circles for a longer relationship is ‘Respect’. For any long-term relationships, mutual respect is one of the basic necessity, which should be maintained and if any one of the partner loses basic respect for the other individual, the relationship breaks. Relationships can be in entrepreneurship, love affairs, business partnership or matrimonial alliances.

This astrology article is about analysis to such challenging situations. For example, someone has Planet Rahu or Uranus placed in the 7th house from ascendant, then throughout one’s life, the native will have to work towards making one’s relationship better. There will be many ups and downs with chances of extra marital affairs.

Rahu is the planet which is never satisfied and hence with this placement of 7th house Rahu from ascendant and 1st house Ketu will make the native perform in his/her home. Ketu in the first house will question the individual about one’s reason for existence. Planet Rahu will also make the natives spouse dominant and the native will be attracted to opposite gender. Aspect of Jupiter can significantly reduce the ill effects and no matter how much troubling the alliance may be, ultimately it will sustain.


I have seen horoscopes of many people and have observed that any aspect of Jupiter on the 7th house help in retaining the marriage, no matter how much afflictions the person be in. Jupiter is the planet for expansion and aspects of Jupiter, help the couple to understand each other spiritually and respect each other. That’s what is required in today’s world, which is all about understanding better.

Any aspects of Saturn on the 7th house, Rahu on the 7th house or Planet Ketu on the 7th house is not good for any native or their spouse. All these combinations lead to frustrations which encourages separation. Saturn aspect in the 7th house, if not its own house i.e. Capricorn or Aquarius leads to many challenging situations.

Even Manglik Dosh may be minimized, if the 7th house have the aspect of planet Jupiter. In Hindu astrology, Mangal Dosha is an astrological combination that occurs if Mars (Mangal) is in the 1st, 2nd (Considered by South Indian Astrologers), 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house of the ascendant chart. A person born in the presence of this condition is termed a manglik.

It is believed to be unfavorable for marriages, causing discomfort and tension in relationship, leading to severe disharmony among the spouses and eventually to other bigger problems. Now, let us analyse as to why a Mangalik Person is advised not to marry a Non- Mangalik Person.

I have observed in charts that Mars have very high energy in Mangalik Persons and hence they are generally aggressive. Now, if the other individual is not aggressive, chances are, that the other individual will not able to match the energy of the individual having Mangalik dosh. See, the logic is very simple, when someone is aggressive in all sectors of life, the other person can not enjoy, if that person is not able to contribute. Any contribution open up options for both individual. It is suggested that Mangalik individual have to marry another Mangalik and if not done, then a puja need to be performed. But by that logic, there are many events, where even a Puja has not able to stop a marriage breaking up. There lies something else, which matters and i.e understanding each other’s priorities.
There are ways to reduce the Mars energy in an individual through which one can reduce the Anger and Agitation and keep going on with the other individual, but all these needs detailed checking of horoscopes.


Sun or Apollo, the Roman God when sits in ones 7th house from Ascendant in Vedic Astrology, these creates problems. Often it is seen the spouse may be dominating in nature and the other individual have to lower ones tune in order to continue the relationship. Lord Sun in the 7th house also means that sometimes there may be early health problems for the native. Mercury is always close to Sun and hence sometimes, it is observed that a perfect Budh aditya Yoga is formed in the 7th house, which helps the native to continue in the relationship with intelligence.
If the 7th Lord in the horoscope is placed in the 12th house from lagna, which is the 6th house from the 7th house then the native takes one’s spouse as contemporary and it also states that the spouse will be one of the reason for huge expenses. But it depends on other astrological parameters.

Reasons of divorce rises when the 7th Lord is afflicted by the malefic planets or have aspects of Saturn or the 7th Lord is in combination with malefic which gives rise to legal problems. If the 6th lord have aspect with malefic planets or in not well placed, it may give rise to legal problems, which ultimately lead to divorce.
While combination of Rahu with Venus in male horoscope and combination of Rahu with Jupiter also need to be seen for any successful marriage or relationship to take place. Placement of Venus, Moon, Mercury in the 7th house generally makes a good relationship.

It is said that marriage is made in heaven and any relationship happens when one individual feels relaxed in the company of the other individual. So, for a good relationship, even the moons signs in vedic astrology must match. So, anyone having Leo Moon Sign is compatible with Aries Moon sign, Scorpio Moon Sign, Cancer Moon Sign, Sagittarius Moon Sign, Pisces Moon Sign and to some extent with Gemini Moon Sign and Virgo Moon Sign. Leo Moon Sign goes well with some problems here and there with Taurus Moon Sign and Libra Moon Sign. Challenges arises when Leo moon sign makes a long term relationship with Capricorn Moon Sign or Aquarius Moon Sign. These moon signs are not as per the western Sun Signs but are based on the position of the Moon in zodiac as per vedic astrology.

Amongst all the discussion, and analysis for a stable relationship the planet Jupiter has a great role to play. So, enhancement of Jupiter in life helps to make relationship better. That’s the reason, where there is knowledge, where there is spirituality, where there is intellectuality, ego, jealousy, anger, frustrations, depression goes away.


So, read more, stay contented more, understand each other more to remain in a happy and prosperous relationship.

About astrology and palmistry: they are good because they make people vivid and full of possibilities. They are communism at its best. Everybody has a birthday and almost everybody has a palm – Kurt Vonnegut

Lord Saturn is the planet for Karma i.e reactions in this world as per one’s deeds. It is always said that do unto others as you wish to be done unto you. It is said that past good deeds always bring good news in one’s life. Evil deeds are stored as bad karma which comes back in much bigger way.

Adorned with thousands of beautiful ringlets, Saturn is unique among the planets. The ring of Saturn is spectacular and complicated. Like the other gas giants, Saturn is mostly a massive ball of hydrogen and helium. It is situated about 900 million miles nearly 10 times as far as Earth is from the Sun. One year of Saturn is about 29 Earth years and a day is about 10.7 Earth Hours. That also states that almost after 29 -30 years Saturn comes to one’s own house, amongst the twelve zodiac houses in Vedic astrology.

Saturn was always worshipped as a God from historic times and had a special place in the Roman Religion. To some civilizations, it was known as the God of time. His reign was depicted as a Golden Age of plenty and peace. The temple of Saturn in the olden days was known as State treasury. Lord Saturn was taken as the God of generation and agriculture. In those times wealth was also analysed by the Lord Saturn. It is during the month of December, Lord Saturn is celebrated as the most famous Roman festivals the Saturnalia, a time of feasting, role reversals, free speech, gift-giving and revelry.

Hence debilitation or Zero Power of Lord Saturn influences these aspects of the native. Saturn is debilitated in Aries, the house of fire. So, more of fire energy and less of Satarian energy tend to make the native impatient, cruel and angry. This type of combination also does not allow the native get mass support, are not liked by Servants and have problems with administration.

As discussed Lord Saturn is debilitated in Aries and that means that Saturn have to work hard for setting up law and order in this fiery house. Hence these natives have difficulty in structuring their life as they have to do things which comes sudden and are no way in order. These people also have joint problems from early phase and may have arthritis. Chances are there that these natives have muscle problems as Saturn is situated in Mars Sign i.e Aries. That’s the reason, they perform very well when they are alone and do things on their own.

Personally, I feel that Saturn debilitation has also to do with entrepreneurship, where one can atleast try to structure things out of their own interest and can LIVE LIFE.

Now imagine a situation where in the D1 chart of Ascendant, Mars goes in the house of Capricorn and Saturn goes in Aries. Here this Saturn though debilitated is likely to bestow the native with fortunes. Again, if Sun is exalted in Aries and sits with debilitated Saturn in the horoscope, will reduce or cancel the debilitation of Saturn and is likely to provide good results. If Saturn is exalted in D9 chart and debilitated at D1 chart, still Lord Saturn will be able to bestow good results to the native.

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability but comes through continuous struggle. And so, we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

There are many people across the globe who do not have a strong astrological chart and there are times, when inspite of the best efforts, they have a struggling life and cannot perform. For these natives, inner frustrations and depressions becomes a daily routine. Amongst various parameters, in vedic astrology debilitation of planets do help us to understand about a planet’s ability to perform with its full strength or its inability to provide the desired results.

Debilitation is a state, where the astrological planet has no power to perform. In general there are various astrological houses, where planets gets debilitated. For example, Sun gets debilitated at Libra, Venus gets debilitated at Virgo, Saturn gets debilitated at Aries, Mars gets debilitated at Cancer, Moon gets debilitated at Scorpio, Mercury gets debilitated at Pisces and Jupiter gets debilitated at Capricorn. Regarding Rahu and Ketu planet debilitation there are many theories. One among them states that Rahu gets debilitated at Scorpio and Ketu gets debilitated at Taurus.

But do that mean that all debilitations are bad or does a debilitation can be cancelled? There are many theories regarding the same, but often you may find that an astrological planet get debilitated in the Ascendant or Lagna Chart but the same is Exalted or placed in a friendly house in the D9 chart. That has a different meaning.

In this article let us discuss about Sun and its debilitation in the D9 (Navamsha Chart) or the D1 (Ascendant or Lagna Chart). So, what happens when Sun gets debilitated in the D1 Chart and is not debilitated in the D9 Chart. Sun is the basic force of life. All planets in the solar system and in the milky way gets their energy from the Sun. The Sun is the brightest star in the solar system which provides light to the entire universe and through which we see the planet moon shinning in the sky. If there is no Sun in the milky way galaxy, we will not have life at all.

The planet Sun was always worshipped across centuries in different names like Apollo, Atum, Horus, Helios, Surya Dev etc. Worship to the Sun God have been practised for centuries and it is no wonder that when this planet in one’s horoscope is debilitated, the basic energy to move forward or come up in life is lost. Most of the times, it is seen that these native’s house has the Eastern and North Eastern side completely blocked or it is not open for Sun rays to come through. These people struggle a lot and works very hard only to find their names not featuring amongst the most hard-working people. Success generally comes to these people after lots of efforts. However, debilitation of Sun in D1 Chart and Sun not debilitated in the D9 chart will affect the native less. Sun placed with Rahu in D1 chart and is well placed in D9 Chart also gives success to the native after middle age.

Lord Sun, if placed in Libra in D1 chart and that also within 10 degrees and is debilitated and Lord Sun is sitting in other signs except Libra in D9 Vedic Chart, will still have strength to bestow the native with good things in life. Now let us take a situation where Sun is in power in the D1 chart but is debilitated in the D9 chart and in this type of situations, it is observed that Sun is not able to perform properly and native gets material gains after immense struggle. Also it is often seen that the Northern side and north eastern side of the house is blocked generally, if not the native is staying with someone in the family, who have a strong Sun in one’s vedic horoscope.

Placement of Sun in the horoscope is very important as it’s that astrological house which lights up the other houses in a vedic horoscope chart and it’s through this house the native gets immense strength. Sun placement and its analysis is very important for horoscope analysis. Lord Sun is the giver of strength, confidence, will power, ability to cope up with any situations. Debilitation of Sun Lord with Venus debilitated in Virgo in D9 Chart, means that the native will have issues with one’s father. By issues, I mean that father will over-power the native. Hence the natural qualities of the native will not shine due to lack of rays of Sun in the horoscope and less creative strength. With Venus debilitated, the native will also have failed relationships initially. So, no matter how much creative the native may be, the native will have to struggle more, work more, pain more to get recognition. A debilitated Sun in the horoscope do not mean that all doors are closed but that also mean that the native needs more of Sun Shine in one’s life.

However, there are yogas in which debilitation of Sun gets cancelled and one interesting finding is that if Exalted Saturn and Debilitated Sun are together, then the debilitation of Lord Sun gets cancelled. There are different ways to strengthen one’s Sun and one of the simple ways to strengthen Lord Sun according to me is Pouring Water in a Copper Vessel infront of Lord Sun before 8 am in the morning.

It was 2007–2008 when the global financial crisis started, which still remains as a nightmare amongst many and is one of great financial tragedies since the great depression of the 1930’s. The emergency began in the year 2007 with a crisis in the mortgage market and developed into a full-blown international banking crisis leading to unemployment. Slowly and steadily this financial crisis passed on to other regions of the world and led to loss of employment.

Employment opportunities may be growing on paper throughout the world, but in real terms it is much less for the overcrowded highly educated population. Each year thousands of universities give rise to intellectuals and educated candidates for the world, but how many of them do get through their dream jobs. The figure is less and the struggles are more. Knowledge in yester years was for knowing the subject and researching on those sectors where one’s interest likes. Days have changed and now in many parts of the world demand of employment and salary package have over-powered one’s interest. These days subjects are chosen based on market opportunities. All these also lead to saturation of job market for the particular sector thus leading to loss in employment.

Few people in the world does things of their own interest. If one has a talent, one can easily find new innovative ways to market them. It does not require any special skills but one’s own interest which makes one find new ways towards earning finances.

Entrepreneurship do play a great role in today’s world and is alternative for jobs. After doing my research on astrology horoscope analysis, personally I felt that 7th house from ascendant do play a great role in business along with the first house i.e ascendant.

My previous articles were on motivation wherein I have mentioned that the 3rd House from the Ascendant/Lagna in Vedic Astrology has lots to say about one’s inspiration and motivation. This along with the 7th house from ascendant and 1st house i.e ascendant in ones vedic horoscope tells a lot about one’s entrepreneurship opportunities. One may wonder as to how is the first house lord related to business and entrepreneurship, when 7th house from ascendant( lagna) and its lord is related to business. The fact lies that the First house states a lot about yourself. Have you heard a saying – ‘Business Mindset’. Well that is what matters and the type of the Lord situated in the first house or the lord of the first house and its combinations with other planets in any houses in a vedic horoscope tells a lot about ones personality, likeliness, mind set etc. So, one can now analyse, as why the Ascendant/First House do play a great role in ones Business/Entrepreneurship in vedic astrology.

Here in this article, let me discuss about various combinations of the seventh house/ascendant lord with other houses which may affect one’s attitude towards business and entrepreneurship. For example, when the seventh lord is placed in the first house i.e ascendant, the native tries to keep one’s entrepreneurship in its own hand. The native is independent and likes to have full control over one’s business. The native excels in those sectors, where he/she has full control over the business. The type of business though depends on the lord of the seventh house, its placements and combinations.

If the 7th lord is in the 2nd house, then the native takes over the family business or does entrepreneurship with one’s younger siblings. The native may also like to take up singing, can become an orator or can become a motivational speaker. This type of placement helps one to make finances through inspiration efforts or can help open educational institutions. These combinations depending on the power of the planets also helps in opening of institutions which can ultimately benefit the native.

Interesting part is when the 7th lord sits in the third house. This native can do entrepreneurship or can earn finances through one’s own efforts like motivational speaker. Depending on the 3rd lord and the placement of the 7th lord here in degrees, these can be a wonderful chart to do entrepreneurship on motivation, opening up a travel agency, opening up a publishing house, opening up a network company etc. If the 7th lord is not afflicted or malefic, the native tries to do things on his/her own. That’s the beauty of a person whose 7th lord is placed in the 3rd house from ascendant.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 4th house then its good astrological yoga. Whatever entrepreneurship opportunities one will take will have the backing of one’s spouse. The type of entrepreneurship opportunities may be of interior designing, gardening, home furnishing, furniture making, vehicle and transport, water related business etc. These again depend on the type of the 7th lord and its combination. Generally, this is a good yoga as the Kendra lord is placed in another Kendra house.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 5th house, then business or entrepreneurship flourishes due to one’s creativity. The more creative work one makes the more chances of flourishing in entrepreneurship ventures. Also, this is also the chart where one does entrepreneurship on opening shops for kids, toys, play schools, opening kinder gardens, day care for kids etc. However, it is worth mentioning that this placement helps more, if one is always creative in one’s business ventures.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 6th house, then native tends to do entrepreneurship with medical equipment. The 7th lord also makes the native do business on alternate sources of medicines like Ayurveda, Unani system etc. The native also tends to become a teacher of yoga. However, this combination is challenging because the 7th lord is placed in 12th from its own house. So, much effort is required for doing entrepreneurship ventures. There are chances that the business can start in a foreign land or clients can be from foreign lands.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 7th house, it’s a good combination for entrepreneurship opportunities in the legal sector, opening up consultations in these sectors. This placement also states about opening up match making websites, becoming a romantic writer, writing tales about valor and courage etc. This placement also makes one’s spouse help in business ventures.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 8th house, it’s a good combination for doing entrepreneurship on research and development or doing business on opening up of R&D centres related to sectors based on the 7th lord planet and the 8th lord planet. This placement is also for those who wanted to work as private detectives or for those who are extraordinary in analytics.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 9th house, it’s a good combination for doing entrepreneurship on publishing, opening up of a publishing house etc. It’s also about opening up a transport or travel house. The 7th lord in the 9th house is all about doing things which are in movement and that means also moving of minds which denotes spirituality. Any entrepreneurship on spirituality is seen from these placements.

If the 7th lord is placed in the 10th house, it’s a great combination and these denotes that the native will succeed in one’s professional ventures. The native will act as the entrepreneur in the job and will be at command. The type of entrepreneurship depends on the nature of the 7th house lord. This is a good placement because the 7th lord is in kendra to itself and hence it gives very good results.

If the 7th lord is in the 11th house, it’s a placement which suggests that entrepreneurship opportunities are to be tried with network and elder siblings. So, one tends to find common interests and join hands for business. The 7th lord and its placements in the 11th house also states that spouse will try to motivate in one’s ventures.

If the 7th lord is in the 12th house, it’s a difficult placement but if one can break the challenges with determination, then the native gets great success from foreign ventures or gets clients or orders from foreign countries. The native may also try to do entrepreneurship on social business or likely to take up social projects.

7th house from ascendant in vedic astrology and 7th house lord has lots to tell about one’s business strategies, its outcomes and the way forward. However, for entrepreneurship opportunities, one also need to also check about the strength of the 2nd house from ascendant, 3rd house, the astak varga system, planetary combination and one’s degrees etc.

Entrepreneurship may not be easy but if one has determination and passion, one can do wonders. During challenging times, the native need to strengthen one’s 3rd house for moving ahead in life.

Stay Motivated and Inspire Others…

It is observed that the global population of entrepreneurs is growing rapidly. The more the job market is reducing is opportunities; the more it is giving way to small business. Small and Medium business opportunities is not going to slow down in the coming days and years. Each day, more and more people are pausing their monotonous traipse of working for someone and are moving towards doing something on their own. It has been rightly said that ‘it’s a career that’s growing in popularity’.

Researching on Astrology, can find the answers to the type of business and the areas of entrepreneurship, one should focus on. My analysis suggests that one should do entrepreneurship on a subject that is one’s passion. So, does astrology support this theory?

The solutions to these questions lies by looking at your 3rd house, 7th house, 11th house from ascendant and checking ones exalted planets or strong planets in your chart. It also depends on the Astak varga system, Shadbala table of your horoscope and other parameters.

The divisional charts state a lot about one’s wishes on taking entrepreneurship ventures and persistent work on the same leads to success. While the 3rd house from the ascendant provides one with motivation and strength to move on after facing difficulties, the 7th house from ascendant deals with business and legal documents. Since the first house is 7th from the 7th house, so business and entrepreneurship dealings and wish is seen from the first house. So, the first house i.e the ascendant is not only about one’s appearance, but also about ones inner strength to pursue ones business. There are many astrological yoga which do help to understand about entrepreneurship opportunities in astrology and what types of business one is prone to. If the 7th Lord sits in the ascendant, then one will try to do business which is run by the self.

The 11th house from ascendant is the fifth house from the 7th house. So, any creativity in the business is analysed by this house. The more creative you are in your business, chances are there that it will flourish more and will have mass appeal. If there is a relation between the 11th and 7th house, it will lead to lots of creativity in business ventures.

Horoscopes do tell a lot about one individual and the soul’s inner wish. Continuous efforts in one’s goal will definitely lead to great success in days. So, does that mean that everyone can do business? The answer to this is partially ‘yes’ because everyone has a 7th house, 11th house, 1st house and 2nd house in Vedic Astrology. Now, we need to figure out as to what ways the astrological planets are placed and in the other divisional charts. But I strongly feel that if one’s intention is good and noble, everyone can succeed in the entrepreneurship ventures. You learn from your own failures and no matter even if your 7th lord is placed in the wrong house, wrong combination, debilitated, retrograde etc, you will succeed as all astrological planets gives results based on ones ‘free will’.

Entrepreneurship can also be determined by exalted planets in ones D1 chart. Any planets which is exalted and is placed in Kendra and in its own house or a friendly house can help in entrepreneurship opportunities. This is also determined by the types of Nakshatras these planets are placed, whether the planets are Ashwini Nakshatra ruled by Ketu, Bharini Nakshatra ruled by Venus, Krittika Nakshatra ruled by Sun, Rohini Nakshatra ruled by Moon, Mrigasira Nakshatra ruled by Mars, Ardra Nakshatra ruled by Rahu, Punarvasu Nakshatra ruled by Jupiter, Pushya Nakshtar ruled by Saturn, Ashlesha Nakshtara ruled by Mercury, Magha Nakshatra ruled by Ketu, Purva Phalguni Nakshatra ruled by Venus, Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra ruled by Sun, Hasta Nakshatra ruled by Moon, Chitra Nakshatra ruled by Mars, Swati Nakshtara ruled by Rahu, Vishakha Nakshatra ruled by Jupiter, Anuradha Nakshatra ruled by Saturn, Jyestha Nakshatra ruled by Mercury, Mula Nakshatra ruled by Ketu, Purva Ashadha Nakshatra ruled by Venus, Uttara Ashadha ruled by Sun, Abhijit Nakshatra which is from 6 degree 40 minutes to 10 degree to 53 minutes in Capricorn, Shravana Nakshatra ruled by Moon, Dhanishta nakshatra ruled by Mars, shatabhishek Nakshatra ruled by Rahu, Purva Bhadra Nakshatra ruled by Jupiter, Uttara Bhadra Nakshatra ruled by Saturn and Revati Nakshatra ruled by Mercury.

So, each astrological planets will give different results when situated in a particular house in a particular nakshatra. That will determine the type of liking one will have on a subject in which you want to go for entrepreneurship.

The job market globally is slowly finding saturation and many educated youngsters want to do something on their own. Many fails because many among us, follow those who are successful and enter into business ventures which they are not at all interested. That’s where we go wrong. Everyone of us has a special talent and one need to look into our inside and make opportunities where there are none. If you follow your heart, one will definitely succeed. The horoscopes and stars also align as per your interest and come to help you.

In the global chart the unemployment rates are on the increase. While in some countries the unemployment ratio is on the increase, in others its falling. While jobs can not be made overnight, entrepreneurship can be a very effective solution. So, with creativity, one can work on one’s special talents and gain income. Entrepreneurship or business of your own if successful can also create lots of job opportunities which can ultimately solve the financial system of a nation as well as the world.

Astrology can help you. Thanks for reading.

There are different forms of Astrological Yogas and important among them is the Moosal Yoga. This yoga is created when any natives have astrological planets in the fixed signs along with the ascendant. The fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. If many planets are placed in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, then this astrological yoga is said to be formed.

These natives born having this particular yoga are generally proud of themselves. Goddess of wealth always shines on them and these people are generally liked by high powered people or higher authorities. These natives are human of principles and have great focus on their work and are blessed with many children.

This yoga is one of the Ashraya yoga which falls under Nabha Yoga (as per Vedic Astrology) and it deals with fixed signs.


This yoga is formed due to position of planets in Dual Signs. The zodiacs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces etc are the dual signs (Details about Movable signs, Cardinal signs, Fixed Signs and Dual Signs will be discussed in my new article). The first half is treated as a fixed sign and the second half as a movable sign. Hence this yoga manifests both the signs i.e nature of the fixed signs as well as of dual signs. It is often seen that if many planets are positioned in these dual signs especially mercury or Jupiter or both, then the native shows intelligence and knowledge in his nature and work. However, these people in their early days may have disappointment and is generally fond of near and dear ones.

This Yoga is also one of the Ashraya yoga, which falls under Nabha Yoga (as per Vedic Astrology), which deals with the dual signs.

In vedic astrology there are different types of Yogas and each type of yogas have their effects. In Classics text books hundreds of Yogas are listed and though it is difficult to summarize all in details, let analyse in this article about the Nabha Yoga.

“Nabha” in the Hindi text means sky or the space, hence this yoga means that it has hundreds of combinations. So, this celestial yoga’s are a special types of Yoga which are often not considered or analysed by fortune tellers. A simple or causal look into the vedic horoscope of a native can easily let us know about the type of the person through his/her inclinations and the areas, where that person may likely to succeed or fall. Let me be also be clear that the yoga in discussion will not be able to provide actual details of the timings of the events, but can let us know as to how this Yoga can aspect the individual’s life.

The Nabaha Yoga does not depend on the planets but the signs in which this astrological planets occupy. Let me also be clear that the effects of the Nabha Yoga is felt by the individual throughout one’s life and is not restricted to Mahadasha, Antar Dasha or other Dasha under Vimshottri Dasha System.

There are four categories of Nabaha Yoga and let us discuss about one category that is Ashraya Yoga. The Ashraya Yoga is again divided into 3 categories and one among them is the Rajju Yoga. Given below are the details regarding the Rajju Yoga:

Rajju Yoga:

If all the planets or majority of them are in a movable sign (i.e Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) including the Ascendant or the Lagna then this yoga is formed. Generally, it is seen that such natives loves to move from place to place and gets name, fame and fortune. These people have extraordinary qualities of moving fast, travelling to places, taking fast decisions and learns to adapt to new environment easily. These people are open from heart and have a broad mind. While not all people see the positive light from this yoga. If malefic planets are more, this people have a changing nature and undergoes continuous struggle and do not succeed in making great wealth. This yoga is best formed when the Ascendant or Lagna also falls in the movable signs mentioned earlier.

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 26: All about Panch Mahapurusha Yoga – A Vedic Astrological Analysis (Predictions By Astrology)


Today I will discuss on the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga. This is not just a Raj Yoga but a special Yoga. Since this type of Raj Yogas are formed due to placements of planets in their signs or exaltation of the planets, so this yoga becomes very strong. It is said that the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga is formed, when any of the non-luminary planets except Sun or Moon is placed in their own sign or exaltation sign in a Kendra from the Ascendant. Such conditions give rise to the great Panch Mahapurusha Yoga. Panch Mahapurusha Yoga is also formed from the Rasi Chart (Moon Ascendant). This is not a specific yoga but a group of different yogas, one each for Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. This is a very powerful yoga and is a special Raj Yoga.

We do not consider the planets Sun, Moon and shadow planets Rahu and Ketu. So, only the planets Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn form the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga. Since single planets form different forms of yoga, so Ruchika yoga is formed by the planet Mars, Bhadra Yoga by Mercury, Hamsa yoga by Jupiter, Malavya yoga by Venus, and Sasa yoga by Saturn.

It is often found that Panch Mahapurusha yoga is formed in horoscopes and many a times, it do not provide the required results. So, though the individual has the combination in one’s vedic chart, but somehow the person remains as a common people or become renowned person locally. This happens when the planet forming the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga is afflicted or combust. Also, there may be one or more Panch Mahapurusha Yogas formed in a chart, for example if someone’s Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th or 10th) house falls in libra and both Saturn and Venus are placed there for Capricorn ascendant, then Malavya Yoga and SASA yoga are formed in the chart. This is a good yoga but if Venus is in Virgo in D9 and Saturn is in Aries in D9, then both these yogas will fail to provide the given results. Also, if astrological planet Rahu and Ketu are having an aspect in the planets forming the Panch mahapurusha Yoga planets, then also the activity of the yoga reduces drastically. However, there are certain more rules that governs the Panch Mahapurusha Yoga.

Let’s now discuss about Ruchika Yoga:
Ruchika Yoga is formed when the planet Mars is sitting in Capricorn, Aries or Scorpio in a Kendra (1st, 4th, 7th or 10th from Ascendant) house. Mars is a warrior planet and will provide immense motivation, courage, valour, vigor, youthful energy and victory over foes. Though these people may be aggressive or may be prone to injuries or may be prone to getting scars in the body. Details about this yoga will be analysed in detail in another article.

Bhadra Yoga is formed when planet Mercury sits in his own sign or in its exaltation sign in Virgo in a kendra (1st, 4th, 7th or 10th from Ascendant) house. Mercury is the planet for intelligence, speech, communication of any forms and this combination tends to make the native intelligent and a knowledge seeker. These combinations fall in signs of Earth Tatwa and the person with this yoga makes the person clever and has extraordinary power in negotiations and discussions. Mercury makes one live long and hence these natives have long life. The native acquires wealth through one’s own efforts.

Hamsa Yoga is formed when the blissful planet Jupiter is in his own sign or in exaltation sign in Cancer and is located in any Kendra House. Planet Jupiter provides one with great knowledge and hence this combination provides one with knowledge, virtues, patience, good and well cultured family. These natives looks deeper for ancient knowledge. These natives are also blessed with long life, wealth, comfort and a great family.

Malavya Yoga is formed when the beautiful elegant astrological planet Venus is in his own sign or in Taurus located in any Kendra House. However, some times Venus has a kendradhipathi dosh, but keeping aside the same, this yoga provides the native with a great wife, all forms of pleasures, luxuries and comfort in life. The native is easy going with females and have a wonderful voice.

Sasa Yoga is formed when the astrological planet Saturn is placed in own sign or in his exaltation sign Libra located in any kendra house. As per astrology, the planet Saturn bestows one with results based on one’s past deeds. Also, Saturn creates hurdles, obstacles and throws many a challenge. The native born in this yoga has medium height and may be dark complexioned or medium dark complexion. This natives will be keen to find fault with others but is devoted to one’s mother. If Saturn is exalted the native may be provided with many servants and high position in the society.

Details of Mahapurusha Yoga will be described later in my subsequent articles. The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 25: Planet of Communication Mercury’s Journey to Scorpio Zodiac: A Vedic Astrology Analysis


Mercury is the planet for communications and intelligence. Mercury is the smallest and the innermost planet in the solar system, which revolves round the Sun with an orbital period of 88 days. It is named after the Roman deity Mercury, which is the messenger to the Gods. This planet revolves close to Sun and never exceeds 28 degree from the Sun.

Astrologically, this is a very fast moving planet and signifies movement, intelligence and communication of all types. Mercury is a benefic planet but its results depend on its position in the Ascendant Chart. Mercury in the 6th house, 8th house and the 12th house is not so beneficial, if not placed in its own sign of Gemini or Virgo. This planet is extremely fast and hence sometimes produces profligate results.

The body part ruled by Mercury is the nervous system, since it deals with communication and nerves, which carries the instruction from the brain. So, malefic mercury may cause nervous disorder and sudden panic attacks. Rahu if placed with malefic mercury may lead to major anxiety attacks. On the other hand, a well-placed Rahu with benefic Mercury can take one to great heights in the communication domain, writing, skilled speaking or can become a great restaurant owner or information technology person, astrologers etc.

Mercury’s day is Wednesday and its direction is North. The mahadasha of Mercury is for 17 years. Mercury is currently in the Vishakha Nakshatra of Jupiter in Scorpio. Mercury will affect different ascendants in various ways. Given below is an analysis:

  1. Aries Ascendant/Moon Sign: Mercury has entered your 8th house. One may get philosophical in approach and may become analytical. These people will suddenly become immensely curious on various things and will go deep into the crux of the situation by communicating or reading. This transit may lead to sudden statements which may harm the native. However, malefic impacts of Mercury in eighth house may cause eye problems, vein problems, blood disorders or sudden loss in trade and investments. In an agitated situation, it is wise not to make the communication harsh.
  1. Taurus Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 2nd house and the 5thhouse. So, when the 2ndlord and the 5thlord goes to the 7th house in Scorpio, you may expect wealth being generated from some foreign travel or sudden wealth increase due to spouse. Since Mercury is the ruler, the wealth is likely to come from Stocks, Investments, Information Technology Sources, Restaurants etc. Also there will be a lot of communication with one’s legal partner in business or life. 
  1. Gemini Ascendant/ Moon Sign:   Here Mercury rules the 1stHouse and the 4thhouse in a Vedic horoscope. When Mercury sits in the 6th house from the ascendant, it means that soul will go into transformations to fight against enemies and diseases. There may be some challenging situation with one’s mother. One needs to be diplomatic to handle such situations.
  1. Cancer Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 12th house and the 3rd house and Mercury sitting in the 5th house means, now is the time when you will push your valor through creativity. Also, this means that the native may tend to spend a lot on one’s children and invest in one’s dreams. 
  1. Leo Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 2nd house and the 11th house and the same goes to the 4th house. This means gains in life in terms of finances but since Mercury is not in a good position in the house of Mars i.e Scorpio, hence Mother’s health may suffer. You may try to reach out to more number of friends in your birth place. 
  1. Virgo Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 1st house and the 10th house and the same goes to the 3rd house. So, the native may tend to gain strength through bigger organizations. Younger sister’s/brother’s health may be not well this period of time. 
  1. Libra Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 12th house and the 9th house and it goes to the 2nd house, means that there may be problems with one’s income or may get income through other sources. You will tend to do a lot of expenses on your family and work pressure may be high. 
  1. Scorpio Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 11th house and the 8th house and goes to the first house. So, astrological planet Mercury may bring suddenness in one’s attitude. One’s network circle starts influencing one’s soul. One starts dreaming about greater goals in one’s life. 
  1. Sagittarius Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 7th house and the 10th house and Mercury goes to one’s 12th house. So, there may be some delay into contracts & professional work place. 
  1. Capricorn Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 6th house and the 9th house. Hence, these natives may face challenges in their own network circles. May be their own network circle behave in a different manner, which may not be expected in a friendly circle. Also some major gains may be received from one’s father. 
  1. Aquarius Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 5th house and the 8th house. So, though there will be some challenges in the professional front, the native will try to bring creativity in one’s job. Also, if the native have a child, the child may accompany or play a role in one’s profession. 
  1. Pisces Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 4th house and the 7th house of the Vedic horoscope and what happens when Mercury goes down to one’s 9th house. The native may get happiness and comfort by traveling, writing and gets gain in finances. However, this also means that mother’s memories and childhood thought recollection may make the native nostalgic. If someone travels, that person will move to faraway places. 

All said I again want to stress that Life is full of opportunities and in the midst of humongous challenges when the all doors seem closed, don’t get disheartened. Strengthen your 3rd house (my earlier article) and move on. Life has lots of gifts and surprises and you can still create an empire through constant motivation and if your life’s purpose serves higher good, you become a legend. 

Planet Mercury is a communicative planet and it affects all in different ways. So, the astrological planet Mercury entered Scorpio on November 2, 2017 and will be entering Sagittarius on November 24, 2017. 

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 24: Inner Motivation and Dreams – 3rd House from Ascendant: A Vedic Astrology Analysis


Every one of us has a dream and we live each day, thinking as to when we will accomplish those visions of ours. Some dream to make a better world for us as well as for our future generations and others dream to make their living better. Dreams are the inner desire, which provides us hopes even in the worst and challenging times. The world throws up so many challenges at times that many of us crumble down. It’s true that when we are crushed down, we seek support from almost anything, with whom we attach and yet when no doors open, we seek the help of almighty which created us. No matter, we believe or not, we know that when there is a creation, there must be a creator and we start seeking divine help. Heavenly help does not mean that some extra-terrestrial happenings happen with us, it only means that we seek divinity in us, to gather courage and to push us through the challenges in order to come out in flying colors. That’s a great story to be told and if the tale is larger than oneself, it becomes a legend.

Dreams are all about finding the true meaning of one’s existence and about doing things for which one is born. It’s all about doing the stuffs, which one likes and pursuing the same irrespective of countless challenges. If you have a noble goal to achieve no matter how small it is; it will surely take off. Staying motivated is a challenge and if you can take on the trials & tribulations, you can sail sees, ride over the clouds and create an empire of your own.

For last ten years and more, I am studying books, articles, newsletters on vedic astrology and have read so many books from India and abroad that today I am confidently seeing vedic horoscopes of people. It was not an easy journey for me but after seeing innumerable horoscopes, I have come to the conclusion that this art which I read and accumulated over the years, out of my own passion has so much to deal with, that I am fascinated by the subject each day.  One Vedic chart giving rise to so many divisional charts is a fascinating thing to read and analyze.

Professionally, though my job is on disaster management and I have worked for fourteen years on the same, I found that I have an inner talent to predict and motivate. Hence the name of the website where I write is ‘Motivational Astrology’. If you find time, you may have a look at the website and read articles at:

For motivation in astrology, I give special importance to the 3rd house from the ascendant, as it’s the house, which according to me provides inspiration. 
The 3rd house from the ascendant in vedic astrology is all about staying motivated and when your desire and conviction join hands with your ‘free will’, things starts happening in this world. 

So, never stop dreaming and strengthen your 3rd house to stay motivated. Let’s analyze and discuss here as what happens when different planet rules one’s 3rd house from Ascendant in Vedic Astrology.

1. Sun:  The planet Sun is a royal star, so things of royal happenings or matters related to Government will be a source for inspiration for Gemini Ascendant. These people will be happy to be with powerful individuals in the society and will love to hear them.

2. Jupiter:  There are two zodiacs, which are ruled by Jupiter and each have their own importance. Sagittarius and Pisces zodiacs both are ruled by Jupiter but are different in nature. I am not going in details about the different Nakshatras that rules this zodiacs but Pisces as 3rd sign from Capricorn Ascendant will generally make the native, fond of romantic music and get inspired from any problems. Whereas the Sagittarius, being the 3rd house from the ascendant Libra may like to be on the move and stories of great valour, pictures of the same, Inspirational talks and fast music may take them to another level.

3. Moon:  The moon is a soft sign and Cancer being the 3rdhouse from the Taurus Ascendant is going to be inspired from politics and political speeches. So, these people will like to get closer to top politicians or be the politicians. Very Impressive arts, songs and speeches etc. are going to be their inspiration.

4. Mars:  The planet Mars rules the sign Aries and Scorpio. Aries as the 3rd house from ascendant Aquarius can instigate the native to face the world with full force; no matter how big the challenges may come. So, these natives are fond of hearing speeches from evolved souls, autobiography of people who have successfully climbed great heights in life, inspite of humongous challenges and get motivated from their tales. Whereas the zodiac Scorpio tries to go deep into the subject, so anything which helps to go profound into the subject will be a source of inspiration. If Ascendant Virgo native’s 3rd house falls in Scorpio, those people look upon the above facts for inspiration.

5. Mercury:  This planet rules two zodiacs viz. Gemini and Virgo. So, if Aries ascendant people whose 3rd house from the ascendant falls in Gemini, the person gets inspired through stories and facts from real life. They love to read and gain knowledge to gather strength for further communication. Cancer Ascendant people have their 3rd house as Virgo Zodiac, loves to hear from learned people and gather strength. The more one communicates with selected people and can connect with facts, helps them to get inspired. They also love to read facts from books, websites, speeches etc and carry on with their life.

6. Venus:  This planet rules two zodiacs, one is the Libra and the other is Taurus. For Pisces Ascendant, the 3rd house falls in Taurus zodiac and gets motivated by the pleasures of life – a beautiful home, a secure environment, soft music and songs, which help them to regain their strength. For Leo ascendant people the 3rd house falls in the Libra zodiac, who tempts them to get inspired from the beautiful things in the world, higher end products and pleasures in life. 

7. Saturn: This planet rules two zodiac signs, one is the Aquarius and the other is the Capricorn sign. Zodiac Capricorn falls as the third house from the Scorpio ascendant, the native will get inspired from doing things which serves the society at large and also will have inner ambition for power. So, these people like to read and know about powerful people in the world and may have an inner ambition to become like them. Safety and Security means a lot to them and they tend to make their environment secure. They love hearing people who have already reached heights and have made a mark in the society. Aquarius being the 3rd sign from Sagittarius ascendant, these people loves revolution and gets inspired from those people who have broken all rules, all challenges to push themselves and become legends. They will love to read about those who have succeeded amongst troubles and have ambition of becoming one. 

The above inspiration and motivation also depends on the type of planets and its aspect to ones 3rd house, one’s planets and the position of the third house planet and its conjunctions and combinations etc. The above is a general analysis and whether you agree or disagree; the fact lies that when the Sun goes up, you need to work hard towards making your dream come to reality. Each small step will add up to hundreds of step, to take you to one’s goal. So, Stay motivated and accomplish dreams which will help you, your family and the society at large. 

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

Planet Saturn in Vedic astrology has been given more importance with reference to one’s karma. Astrological Planet Rahu and Ketu is also known as the Karmic Planet and Planet Saturn provides results based on one’s Karma (deeds). Planet Saturn is a dreaded slow moving planet and provides results based on its transits in different zodiac houses and nakshatras. Right now Planet Saturn is in Jyeshtha Nakshatra and will move to Moola Nakshatra ruled by planet Ketu on 26 October, 2017. This transit will affect different zodiac people as well as different nakshatra in various ways. Some may be benefitted and for others, this transit can throw challenging situations.

Planet Saturn plays a very important role in any person’s rise or fortune. As per the mythological story, Saturn is a planet which grants result as per one’s karma. So, whether one gets good effect or bad result depends on one karmic action performed earlier or in previous births. Saturn plays a vital role in one’s professional life. A well placed Saturn in one’s chart helps to rise high in life but with lots of struggle. A position attained through struggle is generally retained for long if the assignment awarded is due to lord Saturn.

As per the mythology, Saturn is the Son of Surya and Chaya. Saturn has a very strained relation with his father Surya or Lord Sun. That’s the reason, during the Sade-Satti Phase, the zodiac Leo ruled by Lord Sun suffers the most. Saturn represents the old people, disabled people and humans who are not benefitted in the society. Oil, Gas and Petroleum Sector is also ruled by Saturn. In the human body, Saturn rules the bones. So, if anyone has problems related to bones, it is generally due to the malefic effect of Saturn.

Saturn Dristi is the 3rd house, 7th house and 10th house. So, whenever Saturn looks into these houses, there is a problem related to those houses. Saturn in turn protects the house in which it is positioned.

Transit of Saturn into Sagittarius this 26 October, 2017 will be the starting of the seven years Sade Satti Phase for the Capricorn Moon Signs. This will also lead to peak time sade satti for Sagittarius Moon Signs and will be the last phase of the Scorpio Moon Signs. Additionally the Moon sign Zodiacs, who are going to be affected, are Gemini and Virgo. The Zodiac’s who will be relieved during this time from Dhaiya is Leo, Taurus and to some extent Aries. Options and Opportunities are going to open up for the Natal Moon Signs of Leo, Taurus and Aries. The moon signs of Aquarius will be towards a major period of opportunities and new beginnings.

Sade Satti happens when Saturn the karmic planet travels the natal Moon sign in the twelfth, first and the second house. Sade Satti is not bad, but it acts as life’s teacher. During the first phase, an individual tends to make mistakes which turns to be a learning lesson for the individual. The second phase disturbs ones health and the third phase leads to maximum travel in one’s life due to various reasons. However, there are cases, where it has been observed that Sade Satti have actually helped an individual lead a great life during its peak time phase. All this depends on the analysis of the total chart and the horoscope analysis done based on several parameters.

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 22: Transit of Rahu and Ketu in August 18, 2017– A Vedic Astrology Analysis:


In a few days’ time, there will be a change in the placement of the two great Astrological Planets – Rahu and Ketu in the celestial sky. The transit is taking place after 1 year and 8 months and will have various types of effect on different zodiacs. Before analysing the transit, let us first know as to what this shadow planet Rahu is and details about the smoky planet Ketu.

Planet Rahu:

There are various types of mythological stories about the astrological planet Rahu. As per the allegorical fables, the astrological planet Rahu and Ketu was a demon and during the Ocean churning event, they were trying to drink the nectar of ever long life. Planet Sun and Moon watched the incident with caution and immediately informed Lord Vishnu. The Lord anticipating danger beheaded the demon with his Sudarshan Chakra. In the meantime, one drop of nectar have gone inside the body of the demon and hence the first part of the body i.e the Head is known as Planet Rahu and the other half of the body is known as Planet Ketu.

Astrological planet Rahu is a materialistic planet and remains always unsatisfied. Highly innovative in nature, this planet creates an aura around it, so that it becomes impossible for ordinary people to judge the person who is controlled by Rahu. Planet Rahu wants worldly belongings at one go and provided a chance it wants possessions of those in seconds. This planet never obeys the law and delivers sudden results.

So, whether life events are for bad or good, Rahu makes it happen in a very sudden way. Rahu is also about illusion and it creates a mist around the person. Individual with well- placed Rahu can become a great film artist. Most film stars have well placed Rahu in their vedic horoscope. Rahu also rules the political arena and by that it also means that politicians who have reached to higher position have a well placed Rahu.

However, there are many events in life, where Rahu make wonders. Most of the never forgotten stories in the world are due to the planet Rahu.  This planet has created history and those are not the ones which will be forgotten. The creation of an individual in the Rahu Mahadasha with a well placed Rahu in the vedic chart remains memorable forever, even after the death of the individual. This planet is fascinating and the deeds accomplished always keep a mark in the history books.

This planet may make you a King or may help you to rise to a level of the King out of nothing. That’s the height of uncertainty with this planet. It’s unpredictable and hence prognosticating about the astrological prospect of the planet becomes difficult.

Except Jupiter and Venus the planet Rahu is not controlled by any other astrological planets. Venus being the demon spiritual leader, the planet never does harm to its own spiritual guru. Jupiter is the celestial spiritual leader of the Devtas and always reins in planet Rahu to perform things in a great way. Hence you may observe that the great scientists may have Jupiter and Rahu together.  Planet Rahu means sudden expansion and planet Jupiter is about expansion by patience. So, both the planets go well together. With rest of the planets, Rahu is all about taking their nature like a chameleon and expanding their energies. The planet Rahu has fifth and ninth aspect from its sign.

Aspects of planet Rahu are also there in the seventh house but since it’s seeing its own body Ketu, the aspect is not that great. Planet Rahu is known as the North Node of the Moon.

Planet Ketu:

This is a spiritual planet and generally symbolizes detachment. This is the planet which makes you learn the art of isolation in one’s life. The planet Ketu is a spiritual planet and signifies processes of materialization to spirit and may be considered both benefic and malefic since it causes sorrows and loss and at the same time it brings ones closer to God. Planet Ketu is the karaka for non-attachment, fantasy and intuition. A well placed Ketu provides one with great wealth and good health to the native.  This is the planet for liberation and enlightenment. Planet Ketu is the South Node of the Moon.

So, let’s analyse as to what happens when these two planets changes its signs on August 18, 2017 from Leo to Cancer Zodiac (Rahu) and Aquarius to Capricorn Zodiac (Ketu). The following will be the general reactions on the specific zodiacs: keeping aside other parameters.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 21: Pitri Dosh – A Vedic Astrology Analysis



Today let us discuss about the term Pitra Dosh. Almost all astrologers say that Pitra dosh is very dangerous and that it provides one with lots of troubles in one’s family life and one’s career. People afflicted with Pitra Dosh tends to change ones job quite often and do not get settled in one’s life and there may be problems with one’s own father. However, most astrologers will add that Pitra Dosh causes delay in marriage, in child birth & is the cause for miscarriages etc. But personally, my point is that it becomes difficult for the person to settle in one’s career and there are ups and downs in one’s relation with father.

To me it’s not about curse of ancestors, but this is all about ancestor’s deeds and what we may do to release the debt. There is a karmic debt somewhere which leads to this type of ‘Dosha’. This happens when Sun and Rahu comes together in 9th or 10th house. Here let me point out that these dosha is formed when the degree difference between Sun and Rahu is below 10 degrees. Also one need to find the degree of the planet Rahu in terms of its retrograde motion and the planet Sun based on which one can analysis Pitri Dosh. Generally, these makes a person gets stability in life in later part of their innings especially after 35 years.

Also it is said that if the 9th Lord is afflicted, then also pitri dosh is formed in a horoscope. So, pitri dosh is not about curse of the ancestors, it’s all about debt of the ancestors and their work which you need to perform in one’s life. It is said that your ancestors may have performed some deeds which may have created such troubles and pains for others. That bad karma passes on to its next generations and the future generations needs to repay back the debt. Now the question will obviously arise with the fact that when an individual has not done anything bad in his life, why has one to suffer? It is said that there are chances that the same person who did this misdeed is again born in the same family to suffer. Well that’s what this hypothetical concept goes.

However, from the point of vedic astrology, you need to find as to which lord is afflicting the Ninth house and remedies done in forms of charity willfully generally helps to release the karmic debt.

The above write up is a general prediction and these are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 20: Gaja Kesari Yoga – A Vedic Astrology Analysis



Gaja Kesari Yoga helps to perform those activities in life, for which a human is born and that means moving around the world and making a difference by becoming renowned writers, spiritual gurus, political figure, motivational & inspirational speaker etc.

Today as I write about Gajakesari Yoga, it feels wonderful to share the levels of benefits about this yoga in a horoscope. The first thing that is observed in people having Gaja Kesari Yoga is that these people are extremely positive and when you go infront of them, they will melt down your negativity and will provide a flush of positive thoughts. That’s wonderful and in turn makes the native having this yoga different. While many people in the World may have Gaja Kesrai Yoga in one’s horoscope, but the problem lies that most of the Gaja Kesrai Yoga’s are either weak or the Mahadasha of Jupiter never arrives for the individual having this Yoga to get activated.

So, when Jupiter sits in 1st,  4th, 7th and 10th house from the planet Moon or from Ascendant and aspects the Moon, then Gaja Kesari Yoga is said to be formed. It is also said that debilitated Jupiter, combust Jupiter or Jupiter sitting with malefic like Saturn or Rahu cancels or weakens the Gaja Kesari Yoga. Every Yoga has its own strength and weakness. A weak Gaja Kesari Yoga is not able to bring benefit to the individual. So, Jupiter and Moon need to be placed in zodiacs where either they are exalted or in a friendly sign and not in a debilitated position, forms a strong Gaja Kesari yoga. I personally feel that combustion may not play great criteria to cancel the Gaja Kesrai Yoga as whenever Sun and Jupiter comes close together, it illuminates the qualities of the planet Jupiter and the person has lots of respect for Gurus, Spirituality and for Religion. On the other hand Sun Jupiter combination aspect by the Moon help the person to gradually rise high in the society depending upon the degree on which this conjunction is taking place.

Gaja Kesari Yoga is able to provide the individual with virtue, wealth and is supported by powerful people in society. This helps the native to get lots of benefits from powerful people in the society.

The above write up is a general prediction and these are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.
