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.

This article is based on an astrological review or analysis of the English movie ‘Coco’ based on the release, time and date at United States of America. As per some of the Internet information, the movie seemed to be released on November 22, 2017 at United States and lets analysis what astrological planetary conditions supported the movie and its pre-releases.

As per Vedic Astrology, there are some moments which are very beneficial for starting a new project and if the timings and themes support each other, the project is supposed to get flourished and cross continents.

It was on November, 22, 2017, Saturn was at Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (as per vedic astrology) in Moola Nakshatra which is ruled by the Planet Ketu at 2 degree 45 minutes. The Astrological planet Moon was at Purva Asadha Nakshatra ruled by planet Venus at 22 degree 37 minutes. The Astrological planet Ketu was in the second house. Mars the planet of energy & engineering and being the 5th lord in the day’s zodiac was moving through virgo zodiac, giving the house ruled by Mercury a boost.

As per the morning hours, the day when this movie was released have astrological planet Ketu in the second house in Dhanistha Nakshtra, ruled by Mars in Capricorn which again strengthens Ketu, which acts like Mars, signifying the fact that the entire box office expectations of the movie will be due to its great creativity (since Mars ruled creativity during the launch time).

Interesting fact is the star support towards the income from the movie and due to creativity, planet Ketu in Dhansista Nakshatra gives a push in this brilliancy in creativity and adds luminous attributes which makes it so special throughout to take them to a highest mount of affluence and respect.

Saturn and Moon in the first house of Jupiter supports the idea of ghosts and things related to that. Planet Saturn in the first house comes closer to the astrological planet Moon, which puts a dark aspect on the Moon and that leads to hallucinations and wondering about the other world. Since the ascendant is about self, so the release date supports this innovative concept.

The movie has a tremendous creativity by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina and the story followed a 12-year-old boy named Miguel Rivera who is accidentally transported to the land of the dead, where he seeks the help of his deceased musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living. As said this movie is based on the Mexican holiday of the Day of the Dead.

Though the timing of the release of the movie was great in terms of creativity and animation but income wise it will get more profits in some countries and less profit in others. This movie is supposed to get more profits in the European countries which is supported by Venus but will require a lot of promotion for marketing itself in the Asian and South Asian Countries. The reason is the position of Saturn in the ascendant.

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.

Vajra Yoga in vedic astrology falls under Nabha Yoga, which in turn falls under Aakriti yoga and this yoga gives mixed results. However, this particular yoga in discussion is a type of astrological yoga, which makes a native’s life better in early childhood and good in later part of life, but denies benefits in the middle years.

This yoga is formed when a native have good placement of planets in the Ascendant and the 7th house from ascendant (both being Kendra houses) and have malefic astrological planets in the 4th and 10th house (Kendra houses). The suffering is due to the 4th and the 10th house malefic planets and its position. It is often found that the person suffers due to financial problems irrespective of the fact that the native may be hard working and may have great talents. Often this type of situation leads to many frustrations, however, I suggest for all the problems, one need to strengthen ones third house and the second house.

As mentioned in my previous article, the third house deals with your own inner strength to get over the situation. So, depending upon the situation, one may strengthen ones third house and the second house to diminish or reduce the effects of the Vajra Yoga.

Vajra Yoga is not a good yoga, but if one has the ability to change one’s misfortunes into opportunities, one can do wonders. Check your vedic chart and find out what planets in this yoga is creating the problems, specially the 10th and the 4th house planets from ascendant. Which areas in life they are in aspect.  Now look into your 2nd house and find out the placement of the owner of the 2nd house and the planets situated in this house. So, that means you need to understand the relation of the astrological planets creating the Vajra Yoga and the second lord. Analysing all the parameters can provide the solutions to a good life and better financial problems.

I always give importance to the 3rd house and the 3rd lord as I feel that it is that planet and the areas it aspects, which provides motivation to move through life’s challenges. In simple terms, life will not be always fair, there will be disturbances, there will be problems, trials, tribulations, hence to overcome the same, one need to take help of the 3rd house from the ascendant in your vedic horoscope.

Vajra yoga may also provide you a challenging career and that means success after lots of efforts and struggles. This also means that when one compares one with other professionals, one can find that one’s career has been hindered in a lot of ways. However, this should not be a case for worry or anxiety as one can sail on through life’s struggle with the help of one’s third house and will be source of inspiration for all. When life is not going as per our will and struggles starts, most people read or hear stories about successful people who have worked hard cutting across all the life’s obstacles and get motivated. So, if you succeed, no matter after how much struggles, you have a story to tell. This is one of the ways to deal with the problems.

Vajra yoga is significantly improved if one or more astrological planets are positioned in the 2nd, 5th, 9th or 11th house in vedic astrology. We will discuss about other Astrological Yogas in our next article. 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.

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 8: Importance of 6th House from Ascendant – A Vedic Astrology Analysis


This house refers to that part of life, which we may not want to invite. For example worries, fear of calamities, cruel acts, misunderstandings with ones elder brother/sister, sins in one’s life is generally represented by the sixth house of a Vedic horoscope. It’s the house where one looks for enemies, danger and obstructions. Interestingly, there are individuals who often tend to eat a particular type of food i.e. spicy food, cold and non spicy foods, sweets, bitter etc. All these are represented by the sixth house. So, if one speaks of diseases, food and dietary habits, swellings, boils, eye trouble, urinary or venereal diseases, colic, gout, exertion etc. are seen from sixth house. Whether a native will go to fight in the battlefield or will undergo surgery are analyzed from this house. So, the type of disease is also related to the lord of the house or the planet which sits in the sixth house.

The sixth house represents ones step mother, ones maternal uncle, foreigners and the relations shared. The sixth house also represents ones kidney and intestines, debt and the amount of charity received. It also denotes competition and competitive examination and untimely meals. The sixth house also represent industries and your boss.

Any planets which are naturally malefic here are treated as strong planets and will help to defeat all enemies but on the other hand will make the individual struggle a lot in life and diseases represented by that planet.

The owner of the sixth house, Saturn and Rahu are significator of illness. It is said that if the owner of the sixth house or Mars is more powerful than any other planets, the native may be a surgeon by profession. However planet Jupiter and Mercury should not be weak in a horoscope, if someone wishes to be a surgeon. It is said that a powerful and beneficial planet in this house together with planet Ketu makes a human have mighty enemies. If there are beneficial planets which is favourable, then beneficial planets make a native gain through subordinates. It is also observed that during the dasha of the sixth house lord, diseases related to sixth house torments the individual.

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 7: Mangal Dosh (Mangalik Dosha) – A Vedic Analysis

Mangal dosh or Bhaumya dosh is formed in one’s chart when the astrological planet Mars sits in one’s Ascendant (first house), fourth house, eighth house or the twelfth house of a Vedic chart. Some astrologers also see Mangal Dosha from the sign/House Moon is placed. So, as per them if planet Mars sits in first house, fourth house, eighth house or the twelfth house from the Moon in ones horoscope then also an individual will have Mangal Dosh.
It is said that if this planetary position is powerful in one’s horoscope, then it brings strains in matrimonial relationships, have difficulty in marriage and may lead to demise of one’s life partner. These planetary placements of Lord Mars also resist a native to find a life partner for oneself. While this conditions or situations seem scary but is Mangal dosh that bad, lets analysis.
Personally I feel Mangal dosh has its own merits and demerits and an individual acts based on one’s planetary combination. As per my personal analysis, if the native have Mangal Dosh, then the individual will have high level of energy and if the other person does not match that energy plane, it’s the beginning of a problem. Mangal Dosh makes a person short tempered, however it is the horoscope of those who are great fighters and have emerged successful in life after winning many battles of life. These are humans who are unstoppable and after many failures emerge out in flying colours.
Mangal Dosh in a horoscope reduces, if Mars is placed with a planet which is benefic e.g Planet Jupiter and placed in the Kendra houses. Also if the Ascendant of the native is Cancer, Leo, Aries or Sagittarius then Mars becomes a Yoga Karaka planet and hence the effect of Mangal Dosh reduces. As per some astrologers after the age of 28, Mangal Dosh reduces. Mangal Dosh also hampers rise in professional career.
In some cases Mangal Dosh is reduced significantly i.e if the horoscope of the boy and girl has the same dosha, then after marriage the negative impacts of Mangal dosh gets reduced. Also if benefic planets as per the ascendant is placed in all kendras i.e 1st house, 4th house, 7th house and 10th house then Mangal dosh is significantly reduced. It is also said that if Mars is placed in its own House, it generally does not cause any adverse effects. Also Jupiter aspect Mars reduces Mangal dosha to a large extent.
Let’s now discuss about the planet Mars and what it signifies. Mars is a fiery planet and is the lord of war. Mars is the karaka for one’s physical and mental strength, things which are produced out of the earth, immovable property, one’s younger brother & sister and one’s courage. It also signifies soldier, bone marrow and energy. Hence it rules these aspects in life i.e enthusiasm, generosity, boldness, self-confidence, organizing ability, leadership etc.
Now let’s discuss at these positive facts keeping aside the negative impacts:
Mars in the first house i.e ascendant helps one to take care of one’s health and is generally health conscious. The native tries to be independent, moody and is physically powerful. Mars in the fourth house helps a native to have a good career out of many challenges. Mars in the eighth house makes one violent if not placed with benefic planet but also may make one an internal motivator. Mars in the twelfth house if placed in a good position will raise his younger sister or brother in a powerful position.
Generally if Mars is not placed in its friendly sign, problems arise in the bhav or house its placed and the things the particular house signifies. So, what can be the remedies for reducing the Mangal Dosha? The remedy depends based on horoscope analysis but generally the effects of Mangal Dosha are reduced when one prays to ones spiritual Guru or to Lord Shiva.
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.
