A person having faith in Astrology consults an Astrologer. The native is a Leo
ascendant born, Venus in 10th ruling his own house. Venus mahadasha is on. Venus
lord of 10th, in his own house, this will shape a good profession, to give several
profits. The astrologer predicted this native will have a glorious and prosperous life.
The native was very happy with the reading and took leave of the Astrologer. Two
years passed not a single good result was experienced. The native again approached
the same Astrologer. The astrologer said any dasha in its own bhukti does not give
good results. One can only expect good results in few other bhuktis, which too were
over, but only unfavorable results increased and landed him in a miserable position.
Venus lord of 10th, in his own house, Venus mahadasha is on. Why then Venus dasha
gave harmful results? For Leo ascendant, the Taurus sign in 10th house contains three
stars namely Krithika, Rohini, and Mrigasira. In the case of native Venus was in Rohini
star, ruled by 12th lord moon. Moon is lord of 12th house to Leo ascendant. Unless
moon occupies favorable houses 2-10-11 or in the stars of lords of 2-10-11, Moon will
compel Venus to give the results of the 12th house, only to result in total destruction.
The obvious conclusion is that the sign occupied by a planet is insignificant in assessing
the role of a planet. Similarly, the benefic, and malefic nature of the constellation
(Nakshatra) held by a planet is not so significant, as the favorable or unfavorable
nature of the houses occupied, and ruled by the constellation (Nakshatra) and sub
lords. You will meet astrologers who will tell you that Ketu, Saturn and Rahu's
nakshatras are bad, and Venus, Jupiter, Moon's nakshatras are excellent, which is not
true. The correct application of Nakshatras while making predictions is very challenging
in Vedic Astrology.
For leo lagna Venus in the 10th house in his own house, to foretell that Venus will give
a very favorable profession with very good profits, whereby the Native will lead a
prosperous life is not at all an intelligent approach to the predictive astrology is hereby
Hindus classify and call a planet to be good or bad according to its lordship of a sign
counted from the sign where ascendant falls. Westerners judge a planet whether it is
favorable or unfavorable according to the nature of the aspect the planet receives and
according to its situation. But I do not attach importance to the name of the planet or
its position etc. I give importance to the 27 constellations (Nakshatras) in the zodiac
and to the subdivisions, as these are capable of thoroughly changing a benefic
(according to Hindus and Westerners) to a malefic (which is actually experienced and
confirmed by the native) or changing a malefic (according to Hindus and Westerners) to
a benefic (which agrees with the results enjoyed).
RAJYOGAS DO NOT WORK IN VEDIC CHART
INTERPRETATION OF NATAL PLANETS IN YOUR VEDIC CHART
According to Traditional Vedic Astrologers, one becomes rich or poor depending on the
various Rajayogas and Avayyogas propounded by them. In practice it is not at all true in
all cases. For example Hindus declare that one born with Gajakesari yoga or Lakshmi
yoga will be popular, prosperous and rich. A few rich people may have this combination.
But majority of the people suffer from penury difficulties and lead an obscure life. These
rajayogas are pleasant combinations for a few Traditional Astrologers to encourage the
client by giving false hopes of success and happiness in future. A homeless person also
has Gajakesari yoga and Lakshmi yoga. But they lost everything in life, could not go to
school. Existence of Rajyoga in a horoscope is not a guarantee that one will enjoy one’s
life. Many of our conventional pundits attempt to read these so called Rajayogas as they
desire. There is complete freewill to interpret the rule anyway, at least they think so.
One may quote if lord of 6 or 8 or 12 is in 12, Vipreetha Rajyoga. If a similar chart of a
person is produced and it is shown that all the ingredients mentioned for Vipreetha
Rajyoga are applicable but nothing had happened, he has to beat around the bush. A
person born in Sagittarius had moon (8th lord) and sun (9th lord) in 12th house, 3
degrees apart. Moon was in Venus sub, and Sun was in Mars sub. The native was
struggling to make money during Sun period and made fortune in debilitated Moon’s
mahadasa, How? When both Sun and Moon are in the 12th house in same sign, same
nakshatra Anuradha ruled by 2nd and 3rd lord Saturn. The reason is Sun was in the 5th
and 12th lord Mars sub caused him to loose money in speculation. Whereas 8th lord
debilitated Moon in the sub of 6th and 11th lord Venus made him earn fortune during
Moon Mahadasa. This makes the astrologers who follow the traditional system more
confused. They hesitate to admit the fact openly.
There are people rolling in wealth, holding responsible positions without any yoga. I met
a very successful business man. He makes millions of dollars. In his horoscope there are
3 debilitated planets and no Rajayoga. When I came out of his office, his assistant
showed me his birth chart. Four planets were found in yogas. Look at his fate? He asked
me to recommend to the business man for a petty salary raise.
There are astrologers who claim that 1, 5, 9 (which are said to be Kona houses) will
indicate good results. But again they are wrong. For example, for Cancer ascendants the
5th and 9th house signs have constellations (nakshatras) that are ruled by the lord of 6
or 8 or 12. So planets in these constellations in the 5th or 9th house give terrible results
to the native with cancer ascendants. But they are fortunate during the period of the
planets in the constellation of Mars even though the houses may be 3 or 8 or 12. So,
planets posited in houses 6, 8, 12 do not always produce evil results. So it can be openly
said that all the nine planets cause good and bad events irrespective of their nature and
disposition. This makes the astrologers who follow the traditional Vedic Astrology System
more confused. They hesitate to admit the fact openly. Further there are countless rules
and yogas, of which one able astrologer can have in memory only a few to please the
HOW TO RECORD BIRTH TIME ?
Most of the time incorrect birth times are recorded. Further the birth time noted when
the child is separated from the mother. Even this is not correct. That is the cosmic rays
through planets reaching earth is only through Oxygen and it is this Oxygen that
reaches the lungs of the child. Immediately the heart vibrates, to make the first cry of
the child. From this very moment the dasa bhukti starts to act. This birth time should be
noted and there is no need to wait till the full child is separated from the mother. As
explained if the birth times are noted, our calculations to fix the lagna will be very

WHY THE PREDICTION WENT WRONG
nothing happened. Your bad time still continued. In other cases the astrologer predicted
terrible things that you will be hospitalized or may meet with an accident, or may get
married, but the predictions went wrong, and it surprised everybody including the
astrologer. The astrologer still tried to justify his predictions by talking about vipreet raj
yoga, combustion, nechabhanga rajyoga, badhaka planet or sadhi sati, or ashthama
shani etc. But it did not help you at all.
Many of you must be wondering that I was in Saturn mahadasha, and Saturn was
transiting 11th house from natal moon. My astrologer predicted excellent things but
nothing happened. But another person might be going through Sadh Sati and gets
elected as the leader of a country. Some of you might have experienced jupiter’s transit
in 3rd from natal moon which is considered not good. But the person got married or got
a promotion. You can all look back and see how many times it happened in your lives
and you wasted tons of money doing remedies and still there is no change in your life.
You felt frustrated and helpless and wondered if there is anyone who really has answers
to my questions. Well, now you are at the right place to get answers to all your

THE TRUTH ABOUT KALASARPA YOGA
You might have come across many astrologers who scare their client by saying that they
have Kalasarpa yoga in their chart and that is why all the bad things are happening to
them. According to them the so called Kalasarpa yoga is related to Rahu and Ketu. But
Rahu and Ketu give their results as follows:
1. Rahu and Ketu indicate the results of the planet with which they are conjoined.
2. If no planets is in conjunction with them then they bestow the results of the planets
3. If Rahu and Ketu is neither conjoined with, nor aspected by any planet, it offers the
results of the
lord of the constellation in which it is deposited.
4. Lastly the results of the sign
If the lord of the constellation or the planets conjoined with or aspecting be a benefic,
one can expect advantageous results. If the lord of the constellation or the planets
conjoined with or aspecting be a malefic, only undesirable results will be experienced.
The correct interpretation of Rahu and Ketu is very challenging in Vedic Astrology. Most
vedic astrologers I came across are unable to correctly interpret the results offered by
rahu and ketu and planets in rahu and ketu's nakshatras. They satisfy their clients by
saying they have kalasarpa yoga, hence they are going through difficult time.
