  1. Dear Sasisekaranji, your words itself are acting like a soothing balm. I feel that you understand my problem. You are very right, many times in my life I feel like a lone warrior fighting to stick by my principles. It is not a physical fight or even a verbal fight, it is a fight in my mind to do what I feel is the right thing. This is something I have faced many times in my life, in many different kind of situations, and I have won almost always. I have always defeated my enemies/rivals in the end just by my dedication and following my principles. This is the first time that the situation is so complicated since it is not a competitor, but my teacher who is involved. It can ruin my entire efforts of four long years. I see it as a test of faith. Right now my mind if very confused, and I see no way out of this dilemma/ 'dharma sankat' as I like to call it. On the one hand he is my teacher, so I cannot disrespect him. And on the other hand, I cannot do something that I know is only going to ruin my future. (I am being used as a pawn right now). I have so many planets in marana karaka sthana in my horoscope, and although I don't understand the effects completely, all I know is that the pain they inflict makes me feel like I am dying! I noticed mercury's dasha at the time I came to USA. It was a very bad time of my life. Ironically, ketu's antardasha was a very blissful and spiritually uplifting period. In fact, it was the best phase in my entire life until now. All my past hurts got washed away. Then venus dasha started, and again all the joy got sucked out of my life. At least I could not have imagined Rahu-Ketu dasha being so good. Moon MD was OK (dont remember much since i was just a child), while Mars MD required a lot of hard work to defeat my rivals (whom I finally defeated in Rahu-Rahu). And these are both exalted planets in my chart. Perhaps their role was character building rather than giving happiness. Your words that I should wait and let these days pass match my own gut feeling. I am praying very sincerely every waking moment for some solution to this problem.
  2. Dear Sasisekaran ji, thanks so much for your inputs. It is difficult to view oneself objectively, but I will try as much as possible to answer your questions honestly. The first date of classes was Aug 24th. I landed in USA on Aug 8th. To my knowledge, the only time I have displeased my guide was when I went home to India. However, I made up for it by working very hard before and after the trip. The way I see it, my family is my first priority, and going back to India every 1-2 years is something I cannot avoid, since my mother misses me too much. (and I miss them too). But other than that, I have never disrespected him, or gone against his wishes, as I have a deeply ingrained respect for teachers. My mother is a teacher, and this is something that is inherent to my nature. I have always been a very good student, very respectful, and always my teachers favorite. but no matter what I do, i cannot please my guide. Other than that, the big problem is the communication gap between me and the guide. One issue is the gender. He is much more communicative with the guys in the lab. Another big problem is my inability to do flattery. I am just not able to do it. Neither am I able to praise my own work or put myself in the limelight. recently, i am learning (from other students who worked under him) that it is his strategy to pay less, and give negative feedback to students so that he can get more work out of them. he also shows as if he is very democratic and will listen to you, but in fact he will make you do only what he wants (all this would have been ok in India, but in USA a different kind of work environment exists, and that is the reason I came here). he also does not let anyone graduate early. The longer they take, the more desperate they become, and the more they are ready to work like a slave for him. Now this is something I cannot take. I have the utmost respect for my teachers, and for the past 4 years I kept trying to work in spite of all difficulties, just to not disappoint him. But what I cannot take is this selfishness and manipulation. recently, this situation has worsened, and there is so much politics going on, that I see him lying to my face. There is a deep disillusionment that has set in, and I feel a virakti/detachment from everything. I can not see why I should continue with my studies. All I want to do is quit and go back to India. I am not one to get angry very fast. If I ever do, it is with ppl who are close to me, and my anger hardly lasts 5 minutes. It takes a lot to make me angry, and very little to cool me down. With strangers I don't get angry, unless I feel I need to protect myself/my interests. My anger is the sort where I just burst into tears, unable to say a single thing. I am never able to give smart retorts or insult other people. Anyways, this is my story. sorry that it got so long. If only I can figure out what lesson is there for me to learn. It is my sincere belief that all of our life's events are supposed to teach us something, and if we miss that lesson, then the cycle of negative events will repeat until u get the message. Once the lesson is learnt, the troubles also gradually disappear. btw, there is some confusion regarding my navamsa lagna. With different ayanamsa, or even a time difference of 20 seconds with lahiri ayanamsa, it changes. Which one are you getting?
  3. Webyogiji, yes I am waiting for the moon to enter a more auspicious state, may be by next monday. This monday did not seem not good, and you confirmed it. thanks rohini_nakshatra
  4. Thank you Sasisekaran ji, That is exactly what is missing. I am not able to think clearly and plan about things properly. Emotions like fear or anger are clouding my judgment. I did not understand what you said about venus being in 8th from Paka Lagna. So I am capable of dealing with things level headedly? (this is my biggest fear right now, that I may not be able to do this). Do you also look at things from the perspective of transits? I just know basic astrology, and not the application. If I look at transits right now, my moon is under the influence of transiting Saturn, Jupiter and Rahu. Is that the reason why my mind is so restless and I am so confused? I am doing meditation since 3 weeks, and it has helped me a lot to become more calm and centered. But still can not see things very clearly and decide what to do. I have left things in the hands of God right now. Is there any scope of any spiritual progress happening during this period? rohini_nakshatra
  5. Thanks Webyogiji for your clear explanations and answers. I have taken off the coral for the time being. I am waiting for an auspicious day to wear the pearl. (this monday the moon will be waning and in scorpio.) I didn't take off the pukhraj as I feel it gives me a sense of peace. This has been one of the toughest periods of my life, because of no clear cut sense of what to do. When you know what to do, where to go, then no matter how difficult it is, one can still bear it. This has been a very confusing period of my life.
  6. Webyogi ji, please tell me when my phd can be completed? can it happen by the end of this venus dasha ?
  7. Thank you Webyogi ji, Is there any mantra with which to worship Lord Shiva? I feel a connection to Lord Krishna and Shiva. Earlier in my life I always felt strongly towards Vishnuji. Recently(during this Venus dasha) I have also turned to meditation. I have a real (uncultured) pearl pendant but it is in gold, can i wear that? I am also a vegetarian and always have been. I am wearing a red coral pendant and a pukhraj ring, is that fine? Venus being the Lord of education, do you think that this period of Venus can confer the degree, in spite of the hardships? You mentioned donation on Saturdays and Tuesdays. Is that because of Shani transit to Moon? pardon me, since I am also trying to learn astrology, so I am curious to know.
  8. Hi, I am very depressed. My progress in phd has been very slow, in spite of me being a very good student. I joined in Aug 2005, and now it is going to be 4 years, and no end in sight. I am directionless. My advisor does not give me any guidance. In fact, now he does not want to fund me during summer, and wants me to go on internship. There is also a lot of politics going on, and I am helpless to watch, my future is not in my hands but in the hands of people who don't care about anyone but themselves. For the past some time I am seriously thinking about quitting. Please show me some way, I am really at the end of the road. My birth details: 16th Jan 1981, 5:34 pm, Lucknow, India.
  9. Dear Sasisekaranji, pardon me for my stupid question. I realize it now. I should have used my common sense. Thanks a lot for your understanding. I have another horoscope of a friend, who is separated from her husband, but not legally divorced as yet. I will ask her the dates etc and then post it here. Thanks
  10. Thank you Sasisekaranji, my concepts of UL and AL are not very clear. I need to read about them more, before being able to completely understand your in-depth analysis. Coolgimmy's questions are really helpful in this regard. I will ask the lady to do the remedies. I hope there is no special ritual to be followed before doing them. For example, do they need to be done at some particular time of day? Also, when you say 432 times recitation of the mantra, does it mean daily, or on mondays, or just once?
  11. If this is a real example from the alamanc, then it seems incorrect. At 4:30 pm, there will be some particular sign on the eastern horizon, and a sign 6 signs away on the western horizon. during one month, this will change by 1 sign. How can Jupiter travel 5 signs (or seven) during one month?!! At least this is what i have understood about the movement of zodiac thru the skies.
  12. Dear Sasiserkaranji, here are the dates you asked for: 4th March, 1990 marriage 26th Nov 1990 birth of daughter 26th Sept 1996 She came to US April 2003 - Caught her husband cheating July 2003- Separation (started living apart) June 2005 - divorce June 2006 - moved to different city to start residency program in oral pathology The lady is divorced. The husband was very cunning. He moved to a different state, where the divorce laws were partial towards the man, and divorced her from there. she didn't have the money to even get a lawyer or go to that state and attend the hearing. the judge spoke to her on the phone, and divorce was finalized. She did not even attempt to fight for more alimony or to get the loans removed from her name which were actually due to her husband. now her only hope is that she gets a decent job after graduating next year. Sasisekaran ji, please see if she has any hope in this regard. And could you also tell what mantra of shiva ji would be most beneficial? She is from Sikh religion, but she will do any mantras/puja. Also, she is wearing a pukhraj, altho not of very good quality.
  13. Sasisekaranji, what is the meaning of the word 'masaana' ? does it mean burial grounds (shamshaan) ? why is UL in makara considered bad? Talking about karakamsa. I do have artistic abilities (painting, decorating, sometimes write poetry, I learned a lot of arts and crafts at a very early age, and shocked everyone when I was stitching clothes for my dolls when I was 5-6, and was knitting by the time i was 7. Does this come under venus, or is it moon or mercury? i can't dance though. and what planet would give a passion for cooking? what are the talents and abilities given by rahu, mercury and moon? Could venus in the navamsa indicate tht the birth was due to devi's ashirvaad? This is a very vague idea of mine and i dont know if it has any validity. my sister has venus in her navamsa lagna, and my mother is a devotee of durgaji. My mom also has moon as AK in gemini navamsa, so venus indicates her ishta devata.
  14. I need to tell you that birth time has a margin of 5 minute error. So i am not sure how accurate the navamsa lagna is. It is possible tht navamsa lagna is aries, making venus the 7th lord.
  15. Thank you once again Sasisekaran ji. Knowing this lady personally, I feel that the maximum damage is coming from the curse on venus. I have not seen too many charts, but i think a more severe curse would be hard to find. Mars, Shani curse in Rashi as well as navamsa. Shani is yuti in both. Venus is also the AK. The nodes occupy the 1-7 axis, and conjoin 7th L. Further, venus is in debilitation in the navamsa. I feel that being the Atmakaraka, Venus has blocked a lot of things in her life. This lady's story is very sad. She is a dentist by profession, and has one daughter. She got married when she was 25. Her husband was not good to her from day one. She had a daughter within one year of marriage. He decided to come to the USA for higher studies. She left her job in India and came with her daughter. She worked many menial jobs to support her husband financially. Finally when her husband was about to graduate, she discovered that he had been cheating on her. She left him immediately. Her husband completely used her financially. All the loans were in her name. She is still paying them to this day. She doesn't even get any alimony, while he earns a lot being a dentist in USA. Daughter initially stayed with her. But her father enticed her with money and she also left her. Her own parents didn't support her through all these hardships. She also has bad luck with friends/relatives turning out to stab her in the back. her biggest sorrow is that her daughter is not staying with her and she is living alone. From my novice point of view, Sun, Me, Sa, Ma, Ju are quite well placed. Even the nodes are in their exaltation rashis. Nothing explains such a sad life. Being so highly qualified, she had to work 3 jobs at a time, that too as a waitress etc. With these planets well placed in kendras or swa-sthana/exaltation, there should have been at least something good in her life. In fact, I have been reading about remedies for her, as I feel very sad about her situation. Now after so many years, she is pursuing higher studies, and is worried about a job. Her financial situation is not good. Could you please suggest something.
