  5. Astrological Remedies

    Astrological remedies are the solutions provided to overcome complicated situations. In Indian Astrology the main remedies include - Mantra, Tantra, and Yantra. However there are other common remedies like using gem stones and metals to control the unfavorable phase. There are various astrological remedies available in Vedic astrology such as mantras, tantras, astrological yantra, gems, rudrakshas, fasts etc. I suggest the relevant Vedic astrological remedies as per your stars in the horoscope and provide Vedic astrology yantra and gems duly purified with the auspicious mantras. They enhance the positive aura and dispel the evil obstructions in the lives.

    Upayas according to the benefic and malefic effect of planets.



  6. Dear Dudeza,


    Try the Navgrah pida har stotar and the navgrah hym. Recite budh mantras on wednesday and guru mantra on thursdays if you want to.












    Hello all


    The effects of budha and guru in marana karaka sthana are very profound in a horoscope added with conjunctive and aspective afflictions from malefics. just the results of these two, mainly math,schooling,money,relationships and state of mind are all destroyed. mantra sadhana is one way of reducing affliction along with gemstone remedies. but wearing the gemstones for mercury and jupiter together is contradictory, so how can both mercury and jupiter be enhanced without following contradictory practices? can the planetary mantras of these two planets be chanted together? can under any special circumstances, the gemstones of these two planets be worn together? is there any other effective way to enhance both at once?


    thankful to all solutions!

  8. Dear,

    A completely combust badhkesh is blessing of a sort, but once again its a genarlised statement,in some cases the combust malefic still gives the malefic results. So its kind of debateable depending on host of other factors.












    Dear Sandhuji,


    Many thanks for a thought-provoking reading on the badhakesh. Can I please ask you to elaborate on the impact of a completely combust badhakesh? Does it mean the native is safe?


    Thanks again.

  9. Dear all, a story of the Aghori.


    And the link






    The Man who ate a Human Brain


    Maldevta is a popular picnic spot near Dehra Dun. Thirst overtook us while trekking to Maldevta and we decided to ask for some water at a small thatched hut about a eight hundred scrubby hundred yards from the canal we were following. A dusky, well built man wearing a skimpy loin cloth emerged from the dark interior of the hut. Why, of course, we could have water, he answered. He didn't have that much left, just a couple of glasses, as he'd just finished cooking, but we were most welcome to it. Was this his permanent residence, we asked him conversationally? Oh no, he had no fixed place of stay. There was a cremation ground just a stone's thrown away, and he'd built this hut as he had been waiting for a lawaris body (homeless person's body which is generally cremated by a philanthropic organization or trust). As luck would have it, after waiting for some three months, such a body had arrived just yesterday, and he'd been able, in exchange for a good luck charm, to obtain the head of the dead man. In fact, he'd almost run out of water as he had used most of it for cooking the dead man's brain with some rice. He brought out a blackened pot and showed us the contents. He'd already had one portion of it, and would have to space out eating the cooked brain and rice over the next three days. Repelled, chilled, yet curious, we asked him who he was.

    He was an aghori, he said, and Calcutta was his birthplace. After early initiation when he was just nine years old into Tantric Kali worship, he'd moved into other deeper sadhnas (disciplines), but always, it was with the forces of the dark. The rules and demands of the search for power in which he was now engaged ordained that he had to eat at least one human brain annually.


    Already, he had acquired the ability of divining the future. He could actually show us our future, in case we were interested. Why didn't we come in ? Fascinated yet afraid that at this isolated spot we might end up becoming his annual meal, we left somewhat hastily, forgetting all our lessons in politeness.


    Over the next few days, I couldn't get the aghori out of my mind. When a brigadier and his wife came to seek a reading from the cards as they were in deep trouble with a court martial looming on the horizon, it gave me the opportunity to go back to the aghori, with the anxious brigadier and his wife in tow. After all, he had said he could show one the future. What better way of testing the claim ?


    He was still there, at the peak of his powers, he informed us, as he'd recently consumed the human brain. This time, we entered his hut and our eyes soon became accustomed to the dimness. The aghori requested us to sit, and as we sat cross-legged on the earthern floor, placed a lota (container) of water before us. "Look into the water" he commanded. And in the water, we saw the brigadier, older, dressed in civilian clothes. After several sequences, we saw the brigadier with the Supreme Court clearly visible in the background, and he was wearing a dark blue suit and distributing sweets to a group of people who were with him.


    Some months after this amazing incident, the brigadier wanted to take a friend to meet the aghori, but when we reached there we found the hut in a sad state : it was just a bundle of grass and straw and twigs strewn on the ground. Enquiries at the cremation ground revealed that the aghori had been driven away by irate residents of Raipur, a nearby suburb.


    Seven years passed with only occasional meetings with the brigadier, who was no longer in active service and was fighting his case in the civil courts. One day I received a message from him. The Supreme Court was to give the verdict on his case. And when I went on the appointed day, apart from other settings, there, outside the imposing Supreme Court building, was the Brigadier, dressed in a dark blue suit, distributing sweets just as he had been seven years ago in the lota of water the cannibal aghori had placed before us.





  10. have found this analysis by PVR narasimha rao ji for following details quite well explained..

    > Birth Details:


    > January 19, 1970


    > Time: 1:20:00


    > Time Zone: 5:30:00 (East of GMT)


    > Place: 72 E 50' 00", 19 N 07' 00"


    > Andheri, India

    According to PVR ji:-


    I see that there is a very very serious problem here.

    Jupiter having the aspect of Saturn, Mars and Rahu shows a Brahmana shaapa (a learned man's curse) from previous life. But that may not be the main problem and the direct cause of current affliction.

    IMHO, the main problem is Ketu being in badhaka sthana within a couple of degrees from Gulika. He is the 2nd lord and a maraka too. More importantly, he is in mrityu bhaga, i.e. within the dangerous degree of Leo for him. Each planet has a dangerous trimsamsa (one degree) in each sign. JHora shows them.

    Though people may be tempted to take Vimsottari dasa from Moon as usual and say that Jupiter dasa is running now, I will differ. Despite being exalted, Moon is in the 8th house in marana karaka sthana. He is also in his mrityu bhaga (dangerous degree for him in that sign). Such a weak Moon is in my judgment unqualified to start the dasas. We can initiate Vimsottari dasa from kshema tara Pushyami, which has 5 planets in kendra from it.

    Based on kshema Vimsottari dasa (JHora gives it), she is running Ketu mahadasa from 2004 to 2011.

    Being a maraka, being in badhaka sthana, being in an Adhisatru sthana, being in mrityu bhaga and being close to Gulika, Ketu is quite malefic. Even in D-30, Ketu is again in badhaka sthana with the badhaka lord Mercury. Affliction of Mercury by nodes in D-30 shows affliction to buddhi. Most psychological disorder charts show malefic affliction to Moon or Mercury in D-30.

    Planets in badhaka sthana, especially Ketu, give diseases that are very difficult to diagnose and often involve supernatural causes. It could very well be a spirit problem. I think doctors are not of much use. The situation is quite bad an very very difficult to fix with easy remedies. Desperate situations call for desperate measures.

    The best would be to chant Kumaara Ganapathi mantra. If somebody can chant Kumaara Ganapathi mantra for 4 hours everyday for 40 days, it may be able to solve her problem. The rule is to sit down in one place with a straight back and still body and say mantra mentally. If legs ache, it is ok to get up once every 30-60 min, move for a minute or so and sit down again.

    Serious problems require serious remedies and there are no magical push-button kind of solutions.

    Best regards,

    Does Black Magic exist? What's it?

    MIL, Oct 17, 2007. Dr. (Swamy) Raj Baldev

    New Delhi, October 17, 2007 - Does Black Magic exist? If so, what's the proof? Supposing it is there, is there any procedure to ward it off? Yes, there is. Black Magic is an occult science.

    An average person can move his brain waves easily in any direction he wants. If one starts thinking positively, it works positively and if he thinks otherwise, it causes negative effects and these reactions carry an influence called Black Magic of evil eye. An evil minded female releases sharper effects than an evil minded male in such applications.

    Though the inensity of evil eye effect is not weighed so strong, its effect cannot be ignored. If an evil eye looks at you while taking milk, good food and nice dress, good vehicle or respectable career, it can damage it to an extent mysteriously without any apparent reasons in sight. But it is correct. How it affects, only the experienced and mature persons can tell you what it is? It is an occult science which one can confirm by observation.

    The evil eye can apply brake to an extent to any progress of a person, more the evil minded person, more the effect it carries. This is caused by Brain waves.

    Moving Brain Waves is a technology or Occult science whatever you may call it. It has exposed an increasingly popular virtual world to the people, even paralytic patients, can bring change to their lives with the power of imagination, they can relieve of their own stress or tension, and ultimately they can break the disease to a great extent.

    With this imagination while sitting before a computer with Internet connection, a person is not to move his finger. His brain portion is connected to the Internet by wearing head gear fixed with electrodes, whatever he thinks; the image shall start appearing on the screen and with that illustration or figure, his confidence increases to an extent to what one cannot otherwise think of.

    He can assume of doing anything, you may wonder that his body mechanism shall automatically change within and as he thinks, the image shall change its shape accordingly and shall appear on the screen, and after seeing his own image moving about as per his own fancy or imagination or whatever action he wants to put in himself, his brain shall reinvigorate its activities on the same pattern and help him gradually to become what he longs for.

    Under this technology, the scientists believe that a person wearing head gear fixed with electrodes analyses brain waves in the cerebral motor cortex, and thus it would enable him to move a Second Life character forward by thinking he or she is walking.

    Imagining movement with the right or left hand shall also make the character turn accordingly in the same direction.

    The scientists have, in fact, improved this new technology based on their previous research work done on scanning the brain waves that control objects such as computer cursors and electrical gears.

    Even in the Keio University Lab, the scientists have designed artificial arms which operate by reading the brain waves. So much so, this technology could help people undergoing neuro-rehabilitation by stimulating the brain activities.

    The idea of this or similar technologies is taken from the Hindu Yogis, even though the scientists are reluctant to accept it but it is correct, a Genuine Yogi is capable of taking out his own soul out of his body for some time or can do any miracle within or outside his body by just sitting and meditating at one place. Yogi can even awaken his kundalini (Dormant creative energy) and can control or release of prana, and by his yog power can cure most of the diseases or disorders for any particular person or persons, and can also transform his brain to any direction he likes.

    From here, most of other unofficial fibres of Yoga started turning into a new discipline of Black Magic both for curing and harming others like voodoo, which is also known as Voudou, Vodou or Voudun, meanting ‘God the Creator’or ‘The Great Spirit’.

    This knowledge is believed to be originated from Africa but now it is practiced in Africa, Caribbean, Central, North and South America, in particular, and rest of the world, in general.

    It is practiced in various forms. However, its main purpose remains to heal the sick and give relief to the needy. Its healing to the individual includes relationships within himself, herself, with others and ultimately with any spiritual power. It is believed that this method is capable of providing relief to an undeserving person at the cost of someone else and if it is correctly believed, then it is considered dangerous method of Black Magic.

    This method has often been distorted and misused for many centuries. On its pretext, many wrong things have been done by different societies like human sacrifices, vampires, soaking blood and devil worship for the last four centuries, to have worldly gain or revenge. Even, the film producers have damaged this technique by shooting different films on fragile grounds.

    In fact, Voodoo is a life affirming practice that encourages its participants to better understand the natural processes of life and their own spiritual natures, and it can be used both ways to harm others or give relief to an individual. Since it has both aspects, it is a dangerous Black Magic since it is open to damage the innocent people liking causing accidents, snatching their rightful privileges and so on.



  12. There are following times when a person becomes easy victim:

    When there is dasha- antardasha of shasthesh, astamesh or dwdashesh, then a person come under easy influence of evil eye

    If lagnesh is weak in kundali, then due to dasha-antardasha of lagnesh, a person may come under bad influence

    The time of dasha-antardasha of Rahu and Ketu may also create problems for vulnerable persons

    If sun, moon, Rahu are in unholy position, then there are high chances of being afflicted by evil eye CURING THE AFFECTED PERSON

    Affected person should read Hanuman Chalisa regularly

    Kids and men should read Narayan Kavach regularly.

    Mustard, red chili and salt should be sprinkled on special kind of fire and with the smoke of that fire that person should be treated

    Namaste Mr Sripati,

    Your 6th lord of enemies is Venus. Venus occupies A6 (satru pada) and shows "tangible enmities". The same Venus is in the 9th house, showing that some enmities can because of gurus. That Venus in 9th is afflicted by Ketu and Upaketu (an upagraha). Such an afflicted Venus can show tantriks.

    The same Venus occupies Kantaka shashtyamsa. Kantaka means a thorn. A planet occupying that shashtyamsa basically carries with it the bad karma of being a thorn for someone in the past life. Thus, Venus will make someone else become a thorn for you in this life. Planets in good shashtyamsas carry good karma from past life/lives and planets in bad shashtyamsa carry bad karma from past life/lives. One reaps what one sows. That is why shashtyamsas occupied by planets were prominently mentioned by Parasara.

    I mentioned "Moola dasa" earlier. This dasa was taught by Varahamihira and Kalyana Verma. They gave it more prominence than even Vimsottari dasa. Moola dasa is available in the free software "Jagannatha Hora 7.02" (check under "Other dasas" lower tab in the "Dasas" tab). In our tradition, this dasa is used to see when which past life karma fructifies. Moola means the "root". This dasa shows the root cause of whatever is happening in one's life. It shows which karma carried from past is behind a particular event.

    But exalted Jupiter in navamsa lagna is "Sree Raama Raksha" for you. Your sense of dharma is pure and unaffected by these gurus.

    If you want to see when afflicted Venus in 9th in Kantaka shashtyamsa will give his result and send tantrik gurus into your life who will turn inimical and become thorns, use Moola dasa. You can use JHora 7.02 and find that you are running the Moola dasa of Venus from October 1996 to October 2014. This is the time period when such things will happen.

    From DK Moon in navamsa, Rahu is in the 8th house in Taurus. So Venus-Rahu antardasa (as per Moola dasa) during 2002-2004 can show some dark forces against the spouse. Rahu with Sun and Gulika can show tantrik forces.

    This problem will be there in some form or the other till October 2014. But the peak is during 2001-2004 (antardasas of Ketu, Rahu and Saturn). The current Saturn antardasa is better than the previous antardasas of Ketu and Rahu.

    Chara bhratri karaka shows gurus. Your BK is Sun and he is with Rahu and Gulika in navamsa. Thus, praying to Lord Dakshinamurthy will take you to a good guru. You may want to do sadhana of Sri Medha Dakshinamurthy.

    Hope this helps.

    BTW, how was May-June 2002?

    May Jupiter's light shine on us,


  14. Dear all some more valuablr info on black magic.


    Please see the link


    Dristi Badha

    Dristi means sight. Such kind of obstruction appear in life is some of the person related to us becomes jealous or evil towards us and thus exert invisible evil influences. The “evil eye” has been classified as three kinds of demons. Their names are always “Kamas” as the evil eye is causes by desire (Kama).



    1. Ranthu Kamas causes worries and is indicated by the Badhakesh in Lagna or associating with Lagna Lord and Gulika.


    2. Hanthu Kamas is intent on killing, and is seen by the association of the Badhakesh with the 6th or 8th house or its lord and the Lagna or Lagna lord. Relief comes from the aspecting benefic planet.


    3. Bali Kamas desires some form of Bali (sacrificial offering). This is indicated by Rahu /Gulika is in 4th ,5th ,7th or 8th house. If 6th lord conjoins /aspects, the problem is due to enemy’s action.



    Natural benefics have the ability to mitigate the evils in the horoscope. If such planet is in quadrants to the Rahu/ Gulika or aspecting or associating with the Badhak, gemstones of the planet should be worn and the deities indicated should be worshipped and given offerings.



    Abhichara means black majic. This is something which is practiced in many ways in different parts of the world, invoking the negetive energies. The basic motive for black magic is driving the enemy away from the locality, kill him or cause Lunacy. This can involve things such as giving him food (polluted)/burying material inside his house etc.


    Combination for Abhichara:

    1. Badhakesh association with 6th house or lord.


    2. 6th lord in 1st, 7th, or 12th house as Mars occupies or aspects Lagna.


    3. Ketu is 1st, 4th, or 10th as Mars aspect Lagna.



    1. Mritunjaya Japa, Ganapati or Tila Homa indicates the relief.


    General Remedial Measures

    1. Jupiter [who represent Sadashiva or Maha-Vishnu] & ninth lord help /protect.


    2. A natural benefic in the ninth or ninth Lord in strength in a quadrant or Jupiter in Lagna/aspecting Lagna are a few of the combinations for protection.


    3. If malefic are in quadrant to them, they will strongly block the efficacy. The ninth Lord can also be the Lord of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12 houses respectively. The other house influencing the ninth house would show the deity who need to be worshipped. For example, if the ninth Lord is also Lord of second house then, start the remedial process by worshipping the Kuladevata.


    4. If any planet conjoined or aspected by a natural benefic or a natural benefic itself, is in Lagna, then the deity indicated by the benefic planet shall surely protect the person.


    5. If the ninth Lord associates with the Badhak House or Badhakesh, then the deity he worshipped in his previous birth has been neglected, thereby leading to misfortune and troubles.


    6. If the fourth Lord is associated with the Badhak House or Badhakesh, then it is the Grama Devata who need to be worshipped.


    7. If the second Lord associates with the Badhak House or Badhakesh, then it is the Kula Devata. Advise resumption of worship immediately.

  15. Dear all,





    Here is some more useful information on Abhchara Or black magic.


    Aabhichaara - (©<Óæ) - employment of magical

    spells for malevolent purposes; black magic done

    on somebody to incapacitate, destroy or to prevail

    upon him, secretive rite done with incantations to

    harm the opponent. Aabhichaara is of two types -

    Kshudraabhichaara and Mahaabhichaara. The

    nature, cause and remedies of Aabhichaara are

    ascertained by the Prasna, during the performance

    of query relating to Aabhichaara. If the planet

    indicating black-magic is a benefic planet it is

    Mahaabhichaara; if malefic, it is Kshudra-

    abhichaara.The purpose of Mahaabhichaara is to

    kill the opponent by incantation of manthras. In

    Kshudraabhichaara, some substances are buried

    underground or kept in places, where the subject

    usually moves so that he comes into contact with

    these and get afflicted. The nature of the person,

    usually an enemy,who performs the blackmagic,

    Aabhichaara,his caste, his motive etc. can also be

    gleaned from horary. 1.The caste and occupation

    governed by the sixth house or the lord of sixth house

    indicate the caste of the enemy who performed the

    blackmagic. 2.The caste governed by the house of

    harm, baadhaaraasi, or its lord is the caste of the

    accomplice. Pisces, Taurus, Aries and Gemini and

    their trines respectively signify Brahmin, Kshath-

    riya, Vaisya and Sudra. 3.If the lord of house of

    harm is in any way connected with the 6th house,

    then the enemy’s caste is that of the sixth house. 4.If

    the lord of the house of harm is in anyway connected

    with the lord of sixth the enemy’s caste is that of the

    lord of the 6th . 5.If the lord of the 6th is bound up with

    the house of harm, then the accomplice belongs to

    the caste governed by the house of harm. According

    to Sree Varaahamihira, Jupiter and Venus are

    Brahmins; Sun and Mars are Kshathriyas; Moon is

    Vaisya; Mercury is Sudra; Saturn is mixed caste.

    According to another view, the caste of the enemy

    is signified by the lord of sixth and the lord of the 10th

    signifies the caste of the accomplice. The motive

    of Aabhichaara karmacorresponds with the nature

    of the sign occupied by the lord of sixth house. The

    motive for performing blackmagic can be inferred

    from the significations of the lord of the sign

    occupied by the 6th lord. 6.If the sign is Mars, the

    motive is land; if Mercury, it is gold; if Jupiter, it is

    cash and produce; if Venus, it is silver, cattle, clothes,

    women; if Saturn, it is servants, low class people,

    weapons, vessels, water, roots, fruits. 7.The motive

    also can be gleaned from the nature of the house

    occupied by the lord of sixth house, second house

    for money, fourth for land and so on. 8. Whether the

    motive behind the blackmagic is related to a metal,

    plant or animal, can be ascertained by examining

    the rising sign, planets in the rising sign, lord of the

    sixth house, lord of the house of harm, the house

    occupied by the lord of sixth, the sign occupied by

    the lord of ascendant. 9.Whether the person per-

    forming black magic belongs to the same family of

    the querist or outside or is a relative or other-wise

    can be ascertained from ascendant. If the ascendant

    is a movable sign, the enemy is a close relative, if

    in fixed sign he is a relative, if in common sign, the

    enemy is an outsider. 10.If the ascendant is a fixed

    sign, the enemy resides with the native, if common,

    he is a neighbour, if movable, he belongs to a distant

    place. 11.Accordingly as the sixth lord is occupied

    by the lord of the 4th , 5th, 7th, 9th, the enemy will have

    the relationship indicated by the house. 4th =friend

    or maternal relation; 3rd =brother; 7th wife; 9th father etc.

    12.The direction, caste of the enemy and

    how far distant he is, should be ascertained from

    the 6th house or its lord. 13.The direction and the

    caste and the distance of the maanthrik are to be

    ascertained from the house of harm or its lord. 14.If

    ascendant is a movable sign, Mars in the 11th or a

    fixed sign with Mars in 9th or in a common sign

    with Mars in the 7th and aspected by the lord of sixth,

    it is to be inferred that the disease under query is

    caused by blackmagic. 15.If Mars is in the ascendant

    or in a quadrant and the lord of sixth is in the rising

    sign, the disease is caused by black magic. 16.If

    lord of sixth is in the ascendant or 7th or 10th or

    ascendant and Mars are in ascen-dant or aspecting

    it, the disease is caused by black- magic. Places

    where Aabhichaara substance is kept - To bring

    about death, exile, dissension, madness, or ruin,

    enemies prepare powders and other enchanted

    things and conceal them under the earth or in some

    hidden places. If in the query related to Aabhi-

    chaara, Gulika is placed in a quadrant from

    ascendant or aaroodtalagnaor Moon and is joined

    or aspected by Saturn, then the incanted powder is

    kept buried under the earth. 3.If Gulikais placed in

    the 4th house or 4th navaamsa, then the substance is

    placed in the house. 4.If the fourth house or

    navaamsa where Gulika is placed is watery, then

    the substance is kept in water. 5.If Maandi is in

    Vargoathama, the substance is kept in two places at

    house and in water. 6.If here Raahu joins Maandi

    or Saturn, it is kept near anthills.7. If Sun is placed

    in a quadrant from Maandior Saturn, the substance

    is kept in trees; if Mars is placed there, it is kept in

    open fields; if Jupiter is there, it is kept in the house

    itself; if Venus is placed there, it is kept in the bed-

    room. 8.If Saturn is placed in a quadrant from

    Gulika, the substance is kept in latrine and urinals.

    9.If Gulika is placed in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius,

    the substance is kept in the skull of a tiger or cat;

    if Gulika is placed in Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn,

    the substance is kept in a pot; if Gulika is placed in

    Gemini, Libra, Aquarius it is kept in bamboo; if

    Gulika is placed in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces it is

    kept in a human skull. 10.If Gulika is placed in a

    Samhaara-nakshathra, the substance is in the form

    of a toy having human form. Destructive asterisms

    are Kaarthika, Uttharaphaalguni, Uttharaasha-

    adta, Aardra, Swaathi, Sathabhishak, Aaslaesha,

    Jyaeshtta, Raevathy. 11.If Gulika is in Scorpio, it

    is in the form of an amulet. 12.If Gulika is placed

    in a quadruped navaamsa sign it is a bone. 13.The

    number of blackmagic substances is to be ascer-

    tained from the number of navaamsaas traversed

    by Gulika in the sign he occupies. 14.If the lord of

    harmful sign occupies an Oordhwamukha raasi,

    the substance is placed on the top of trees, if in

    adhoamukha sign under the earth and if in

    thiryangmukha sign, it is kept inside stones and logs

    of woods. 15.According to the nature of planets

    being placed in the house of harm or being the lords

    of houses of harm, the place where the blackmagic

    subject is kept can be ascertained. Sun=near

    temples; Moon=watery tracts or where springs

    sprout; Mars=burial grounds; fiery places, battle

    grounds; Mercury=places of learning or amuse-

    ment; Jupiter= treasury or state boundaries; Venus=Aabhichaara

    bedroom or village boundaries; Saturn= dirty or

    deserted places; if Raahu, Kaethu or Gulika=

    serpents’ abode or in its viscinity. Direction where

    the black magic substance (kshudra) is kept -The

    direction where the black magic substance is kept

    can be ascertained from the sixth lord, lord of the

    house of harm, lord of sign and navaamsa occu-

    pied by the obstructing lord. Whether the black

    magic substance (kshudra) could be removed or

    not - If lord of harm is in a movable sign, the sub-

    stance can be easily removed; if in a common sign

    it can be removed with effort, if in a fixed sign it

    cannot be removed at all. The methods of

    remedying the kshudra - 1.Add together longi-

    tudes of the ascendant lord and lord of sixth in the

    query chart and find out the sign in which this

    longitude falls. Also find which planet joins or

    aspects this sign. If it is Sun Aghoarabali is the

    remedy; if Moon Kapaalahoama is the remedy; if

    Mars Bhoothamaaranabali or Khadgaraavana-

    bali or Kritthikaabali is the remedy. If Mercury

    Chakrahoama is the remedy; If Jupiter Prathee-

    kaarabali is the remedy; if Venus Pratheekaarabali

    or Bhootha maaranabali is the remedy; If Saturn

    Pratheekaara bali should be performed. 2.It can

    also be inferred from the planet occupying or

    aspecting the tenth house or lord of tenth house from

    aaroodta. 3.If the first letter in the sentence said by

    the messenger is a long one, the disease is cured by

    music; if it is short, it is cured by worship and feed-

    ing; if a combined consonant it can be cured by

    performing dance.Who should perform the

    remedy - If the querist at the time of putting the

    question, looks at rightside and upward direction,

    the remedies should be performed by Brahmins; if

    he looks down, by temple priests; if looks up on left

    side, by the high class among the low class; if he

    looks down to the left, the inferior amongst the low

    born ones. Identification of the deity causing the

    affliction-By closely observing the parts of the body

    touched by the questioner at the time of putting the

    question, the deity causing baadha can be ascer-

    tained. 1.If the questioner touches his chest,

    forehead, private parts and navel, then the man has

    troubles from daevathaas (deities). If he touches

    his sides, back, fingers, neck, serpents are causing

    the trouble. If he touches his eye-brows, ears and

    arm-pits Pisaachaas(ghosts) are troubling him. 2.If

    the lord of the house of harm occupies the sign of

    Mercury or navaamsa, the trouble is from deities

    worshipped by high class people in their homes; if

    it is Jupiter’s house or navaamsa, the trouble will

    be from deities worshipped in temples; if it is Sat-

    urn’s house or navaamsa,the trouble is from deities

    worshipped by low class people; if it is his own sign

    or navaamsa, the trouble is from deities having their

    abode in solitary gardens. 3.If Mars owning the

    house of harm, joins with Kaethu, the troubling

    deity is Chaamundee. 4.If Mars joins with or occu-

    pies the signs of Mercury it is Panchamee. 5.If Mars

    occupies odd signs or navaamsaas, the deities are

    Bhairava or Ghantaakarna. 6.If Mars is in even

    signs or navaamsas, the deities are Rakthaeswari

    or Rakthachaamundee. Position of planets in

    different signs and their indications of deities caus-

    ing harmful diseases. Sun - in Aries-Siva; in

  16. Dear Deepa ji,


    you are welcome to discuss any chart you want to, Though obama's chart has the conjuction of deb jup and mooltrikona sat in first house its turned out good as sat is vargottama and jup occupies its mooltrikona sign in Navamsa , its true that this combination gives a single minded ambition but with caution and meticulous approach of saturn not the quick and fiery ruthless approach as is with mars. Many thanks to you Deepa ji for actively involving me in a discussion, its the blessings and knowledge of learned people like you , which has helped me learn whatever little i know.









    Its amazing that he rose to such popularity with a chart where akaraka jupiter debilitates and he is running Jupiter MD.


    But this is not what our discussion is about. I have a feeling that while Saturn is rigorously directed towards inward turmoil, jupiter gives a consitent length to the same. Jupiter+Saturn yukti is often termed as Brahma yog. It can cause the native to rigorously set after his/her ambition (as mentioned earlier above) - but that can happen only when the 3rd upachaya lord is well placed.


    There is a whole lot to consider in order to deduce the results of this conjunction. I would like to discuss another chart from the examples you had mentioned above.

  17. Dear parmod ji,


    Please come up with specific Questions as it will be easier for me to answer and look for.












    Dear Sandhu Ji,


    Inauspicious, is the perfect word to match with my chart.


    It's true as I've always been in troubles, but well educated. I am single now but seems that my personal life may not be so easy with health, career and married life seems to be a few and life long issues.


    I have jupiter dasha running now and is ver painful and my next dasaha is saturn, I would like to know if my saturn dasha would favour me or would it be even painful.


    Is there a dasha or a planet which is very strong in my chart??? I am exhausted........!!!


    Thanks & Regards.



    Dear Deepa ji,



    Whatever you have said on this chart cannot be negated , Jupiter in lagan forms a kuldeepak yoga and kesri yoga , But at the same time aspect and conjuction of malefics will give instability of mind , though education of native will be good, and the said person can succeed politicaly also , i am just talking about the Jup sat conjuction only, There may be certain amount of uncertainity for the native ,with cerain unexpected turns and twists creating semblence of disturbanceof events every now or then. As for saturn and its aspect on its own house on a retro mercury well the disturbances will be there , but with likely escape route. Retro mercury in 10th will give an inheritance to the native and once again will improve the political foray chances for the native.












    greetings! What are your views on the guru-shani conjunction on this chart? (09 Feb 2001, 1331, delhi)


    Here, jupiter which is inauspicious for taurus lagna occupies lagna. This can be considered lucky because jupiter in lagna is good, its in a 6-8 with the bad 8th house it lords and most importantly, its in an exchange with exalted lagna lord venus.


    Saturn, yogkaraka for taurus lagna, is in marana karaka sthana. Traditionally considered bad for the house that saturn owns. However, its 10 aspect upon its own house of career will not mar the native's career in my opinion.


    So, here, will jupiter fructify the yogkaraka aspect in the native's chart or will the inauspicious Jupiter get afflicted? In any case, dont you think that Jup+Sat in lagna in taurus should be good?




  19. Dear anusha ji,


    The lady in question has a jupiter saturn conjuction in 11 th ,which according to some is good, but in this case the conjuction is of planets owning 6,7,8 & 9 th houses in 11th the house of gains, but what are the gains in this case jupiter has been turned insignificant in enemy house. Saturn as owner of 7 & 8th gains some power on virtue of being in friends sign. Overall the Md of jup in Ad jup started from 2006 will not turn out very well for the native.





  20. Dear nisha,


    In your case saturn is retrograde thus complicating things a bit more, here jup is owner of 6th and 9th houses and saturn 7th & 8th houses,thus matters related to the houses and of the 3rd houses will suffer, at present you may be find the marital pursuits a thing to reckon with.









    Dear astrologers,


    While the topic of saturn conjunct jupiter is being discussed, wondering what that conjunction in the third house means? I have jupiter in tight conjunction with retro saturn in third house. From what I read, third house is for courage and younger siblings. I do not have any younger siblings and I am scared of almost everything!! I have stage fear, afraid of takings risks and panic for small things...


    If you can throw some light on this,I would be greatful!

    Here are my birth details.

    DOB: 2nd June 1981

    TOB: 10:30 AM

    Place: Kumta, karnataka state, India.


    Awaiting your valuable response,


  21. Dear parmod,

    In your case the placement of badhkesh is not auspicious, badhakesh is considered auspicious if placed in 12th and is alone.In your case its placed in 12th with sat®,rahu & mars . Sun and mer will act as secondary obstructors. please do share your details.











    Dear Sandhu Ji and Anusha ji,


    Since I felt that my chart is appropriate to the discussion, felt like putting it forward...


    Appreciate if you can find time out for this.....


    DOB: 10-04-80

    TOB: 17-25

  22. <TABLE class=post cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=row vAlign=top align=left width="100%">The debility is canceled when -


    the neecha planet is free from combustion or is retrograde and is not in any dusthana (6th, 8th or 12th),

    the lord of the sign where this planet would get exalted is in kendra,

    the lord of current house where the planet is debilitated and the lord of sign where this planet would be exalted are situated mutually in kendras,

    the neecha planet is aspected by lord of exaltation sign of the planet - of course, there ought to be a good relationship between the planet and ruler of the sign where the planet is exalted,

    the planet that becomes exalted in the current sign is in kendra from lagna or moon,

    this debilitated planet is exalted in Navamsha chart.

    Conditions 1, 2, 5, 6 are explicitly mentioned as a rajyogas in Dr B.V. Raman’s book “Three hundred important combinations”. Along with these, conditions 3 and 4 are additionally called as rajyogas by J.N. Bhasin.


    Whatever information you have provided is inadequate, to judge the yoga and offer any comments on the same.








    To illustrate the point, consider a horoscope where Saturn is in Aries and hence debilitated. As per the rules, Saturn’s debilitation would be canceled when -


    Saturn is in any house except 6th, 8th or 12th - e.g. this would happen for Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn lagna or rashi. However, this condition may not be true all the time and must be looked at in conjunction with other conditions as well. Per Dr. B.V. Raman, a retrograde Saturn, debilitated in 10th house can damage a person’s career beyond repair, unless there is some benefic aspect on 10th house. Saturn’s favourable placement in other divisional chart would also help in mitigating the effects.

    Saturn gets exaltation in Libra, which is the sign ruled by Venus. According to rule number 2, Saturn’s exaltation gets canceled when Venus is in kendra.

    Saturn is debilitated in Aries, which is rules by Mars. Thus, Saturn’s exaltation would be canceled if Mars and Venus are in mutual kendras.

    Saturn’s debilitation would be canceled if Venus aspects it.

    Aries is the exaltation sign of Sun. If Sun is in kendra, Saturn’s debilitation is canceled. This is not considered to be a one of the conditions causing neechabhanga by Dr. Raman, although it is mentioned in his book.

    If Saturn is in Libra in Navamsha chart, its debilitation stands canceled.

    In the context of debilitation of planets, other yogas that are worth mentioning are -


    (a) When ruler of lagna is in moveable sign, (b) the lagna itself is a movable sign and © if the lord of Navamsha occupied by a debilitated planet is in a kendra or trikona, this Navamsha lord is capable of giving a rajyoga.

    Mutual aspect between lagna lord and a debilitated planet with Rahu and Saturn in 10th, aspected by benefic 9th lord, gives rajyoga. This effect would be seen in the dasha and antardasha periods of this debilitated planet.

    Does mere cancellation of debility mean that the planet has become a rajyoga karaka? It is a matter of debate. Condition 1, which states that the planet just needs to be away from Sun and not situated in 3 out of 12 houses in a horoscope would apply to a majority of charts. This would mean that the debilitation would cancel for little less than 75% of all individuals. In my humble opinion, this condition is too generic to cause rajyoga.


    A rajyoga should be caused only when such a planet getting the neechabhanga is situated in a kendra and is strong in Navamsha as well. It should also simultaneously be a lord of houses 1st, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th and 10th and not the rest of the houses in the chart. My opinion on ownership of kendra and trine houses is based on a simple reasoning - a planet becomes a yoga karaka by by the virtue of lordship of certain houses and not by its position in horoscope, e.g. Saturn is a rajyoga karaka for Libra lagna by becoming ruler of houses 4 and 5, and for Taurus by being the ruler of houses 9 and 10. Unlike a planet which is exalted, a planet getting Neechabhanga would still be naturally inclined to do harm when it is lord of dusthanas - just like other planets in the chart. Neechabhanga is cancellation of debility, it is not exaltation.

  23. General influence of Mercury retrograde


    Mercury rules over the mind's processes, studying, communication, businesses, travels and the like. When Mercury reverses its direction, all these areas are affected as well.

    The mind turns naturally inwards and people tend to analyze more the own thoughts and follow the common thinking patterns, rather then be curious and eager of new intellectual experiences or challenges. This helps the meditation or the thorough lonely long-term study of a specific matter, but it affects the study of new subjects, the communication with the others, the attention oriented outwards.

    Businesses, travels and communications tend to experience delays and different problems. Computers and other processes that work with information may experience crashes, unexpected failures.

    Don't enroll to courses, don't buy expensive Mercurian items (books, cars, mobile phones etc.), don't sign important contracts and do not marry.

    What is this Mercury retrograde period good for?


    It is definitely a very good period for some actions. No time is completely bad for anything, there is a reason in everything happens.

    The key is the reversed direction of movement: take any known Mercurian action, reverse its flow, consider the keywords "re-doing something", "double-checking", "finish the old projects" and there you are, you've found the good side of Mercury retrograde.

    For instance, you may want to read again a book you particularly liked, a subject you studied before, meet and discuss with old friends you haven't met for a long time, travel to places you've already been to before.

    This is an excellent time to work on old projects that never got to be finished. So, think about the things you started and never finalized.

    Next, you might wish to prevent any bad things to happen to you: so double-check your agenda, call your business partners to confirm that everything goes as planned, have everything ready before the deadline and leave some extra time for unexpected events. Make copies of your important files and documents, save your work more often.

    The other solution is to go on vacation or at least slow down the pace of your projects. You will find that going slowly during the Mercury retrograde period will spare you many efforts of redoing the same action that wasn't performed right the first time.

    Above all, be generous and compassionate: you are already aware about the influence of this period, but the others aren't aware of it or there may be uncontrollable events. That's why you should have more diligence with the others and give them some more time. It'll be your mental health that you'll be sparing actually.

    Mercury represents non-emotional, rational, objective thought. Mercury is flexible, responsive, and adaptable. Part of its job is to help disburse information, so it rules perception, language, writing, editing, research, speaking and learning. Mercury also rules telecommunications, computing, software, electronic gadgets, shipping, couriers, and transportation, etc. So, it's a pretty important planet to just everyday living.

    So, when Mercury goes retrograde, it scrambles information, causing static, confusion and forgetfulness. The effects are universal and all peoples feel its effect, regardless of their own signs. The signs Gemini and Virgo feel it slightly more because Mercury is their ruling planet and because they're such picky perfectionists and they really do expect their lives to go like clockwork.

    Mercury Rx periods is the revealing of things hidden [past crimes are revealed or criminals located who were hiding during these times, clues are found or researched that had been previously overlooked in the past]. Also, investigations can be horribly botched during those times too. Probably it's almost instinctual when detectives review and reveal during these times.

    Quote by Steven Forrest: "Mercury retrograde isn't bad; it just takes some planning to cooperate with the energies. It's meant to be spent assimilating experiences, reviewing the past, and redoing, in general. As a matter of fact, if you really want to get the most out of Mercury retrograde, confine your activities as much as possible to those that have "re" attached to the beginning of the word. Reschedule appointments, repair vehicles, return to the past, rewrite documents and agreements, and so forth."

    Mercury RX is a great time for writers to go back to their work and edit. You can find more mistakes during that time, and you might also come up with ideas to spice up your writing, make it stronger. It's also a good period to clean out files, closets, return to unfinished projects and reviewing them, spend more time mentally re-viewing things that have happened in the past, get in touch with old friends, and schedule class reunions.

    Some "don'ts" to get you through this period: don't start any new task or project (jobs began under a Mercury Rx period, even during a shadow period before or after, have always ended either being renegotiated usually not to our benefit or dropped altogether), don't plan any extended air flights or other lengthy trips, don't start any new medical procedures; if the appointment is for diagnostics or researching, by all means run with it and prefer to wait until after the Rx period to make major decisions.

    Sometimes, however, the only thing that can be changed or have power over an unresolved issue is to change the way to deal with it: acceptance, tolerance, avoidance, or forgiveness are the only constructive outlets.




  24. Mars retrograde


    Mars retrograde in astrology


    Mars is the planet of energy, action, desire, sports and wars.

    When Mars turns to retrograde motion, the overall atmosphere changes, people have lower physical energy, they get tired and feel stressed more easily and they need more time to relax and recover.

    The mood, the desires, the initiative, the ambition, they all seem to function on a lower level and therefore all new projects started during this period seem to lack stamina and focus. The same happens on the sexual level: the libido decreases for a while, but then comes back to normal after the end of this period.

    All new Martian actions fail in a much higher proportion (surgical operations, starting a sport, lawsuit, war). Also, it is not recommended to buy mechanical stuff.

    As Mars is retrograde, all this Martian energy is now internalized, uncontrolled subconscious agressivity can burst out. Instincts are not as reliable as before, so acting out of impulse is not recommended.

    The best way to use the Mars retrograde period is to make plans, to work on details and then to wait the end of this period in order to materialize them. People should relax, study, take care of their health, do some yoga exercises or practice other techniques that use the internal or spiritual energy. The keyword of the period is patience. One just has to wait for it to pass in order to gets things done.

    Mars retrograde in history


    As you will see below from the examples of recent history (the Yom Kippur War, the East Timor invasion by Indonesia, the Falklands War, the Kosovo War), the wars initiated during a Mars retrograde period are always lost in the long run by the attacking country and prove to be exceedingly bloody, with huge casualties.

    Interestingly, as I studied the modern history in correlation with Mars retrograde, I noticed that all wars initiated by <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region> started immediately after a Mars retrograde period (10 to 26 days afterwards). They were all very successful military campaigns. I found this fact to be quite intriguing. This can be explained either by a cosmic coincidence, due to the very special and strong position of Mars in <st1:country-region w:st="on">Israel</st1:country-region>'s horoscope, either by <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region>'s leaders using the astrology for successful warfare.


    • The 1956 Suez War started when <st1:country-region w:st="on">Israel</st1:country-region> atacked <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Egypt</st1:place></st1:country-region> on October 29, 1956, which is 19 days after the previous Mars retrograde period which ended on October 10, 1956.
    • The 1967 Six-Day War began when <st1:country-region w:st="on">Israel</st1:country-region> attacked its Arab neighbors <st1:country-region w:st="on">Egypt</st1:country-region>, Jordan, and <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Syria</st1:place></st1:country-region> on June 5, 1967, which is 10 days after the previous Mars retrograde period which ended on May 26, 1967.
    • The 1978 Invasion of Lebanon by <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region> (Operation Litani) began on March 14, 1978, which is 10 days after the previous Mars retrograde period which ended on March 2, 1978.
    • The 1982 Invasion of Lebanon by <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region> began on June 6, 1982, which is 26 days after the previous Mars retrograde period which ended on May 12, 1982.

    List of recent wars started during a Mars retrograde period:

    Mars retrograde: September 19 - November 26, 1973

    The Yom Kippur War (the 1973 Arab-Israeli War)

    The Yom Kippur War (the 1973 Arab-Israeli War) was fought from October 6 (the day of Yom Kippur) to October 24, 1973, between <st1:country-region w:st="on">Israel</st1:country-region> and a coalition of <st1:country-region w:st="on">Egypt</st1:country-region> and <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Syria</st1:place></st1:country-region>. The War began when <st1:country-region w:st="on">Egypt</st1:country-region> and <st1:country-region w:st="on">Syria</st1:country-region> launched a surprise joint attack on <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region>. <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region> recovered and stroke back, threatening both enemy capitals when the cease-fire international accord took place.

    However, in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region>, the casualty rate was high. Per capita, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Israel</st1:country-region> suffered as many casualties in 3 weeks of fighting as the <st1:country-region w:st="on">United States</st1:country-region> did during almost a decade of fighting in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Vietnam</st1:place></st1:country-region>.

    Mars retrograde: November 7, 1975 - January 20, 1976

    The East Timor invasion by Indonesia

    On December 7, 1975, Indonesian forces launched a massive air and sea invasion, known as Operasi Seroja, or 'Operation Lotus'.

    During the invasion mass killings and rapes took place: 60,000 Timorese were dead by mid-February. A puppet Provisional Government of East Timor was installed in mid-December, consisting of Apodeti and UDT leaders. Attempts by the United Nations Secretary General's Special Representative, Vittorio Winspeare Guicciardi to visit Fretilin-held areas from <st1:City w:st="on">Darwin</st1:City>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Australia</st1:country-region> were obstructed by the Indonesian military, which blockaded <st1:place w:st="on">East Timor</st1:place>. On May 31, 1976, a 'People's Assembly' in Dili, selected by Indonesian intelligence, unanimously endorsed an 'Act of Integration', and on July 17, East Timor officially became the 27th province of the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Republic</st1:PlaceType> of <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Indonesia</st1:PlaceName></st1:place>. Although the United Nations had turned a blind eye to the Indonesian annexation of West Irian some years previously, the occupation of East Timor remained a public issue in many nations, <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Portugal</st1:place></st1:country-region> in particular, and the UN never recognised either the regime installed by the Indonesians or the subsequent annexation.

    On December 12, 1975, the United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution according to which, "having heard the statements of the representatives of Portugal, as the Administering Power, concerning developments in Portuguese Timor...deplores the military intervention of the armed forces of Indonesia in Portuguese Timor and calls upon the Government of Indonesia to withdraw without delay its armed forces from the Territory...and recommends that the Security Council take urgent action to protect the territorial integrity of Portuguese Timor and the inalienable right of its people to self-determination".

    However, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the <st1:country-region w:st="on">US</st1:country-region> ambassador to the UN at the time, wrote in his biography that "the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">United States</st1:place></st1:country-region> wished things to turn out as they did, and worked to bring this about. The Department of State desired that the United Nations prove utterly ineffective in whatever measures it undertook [with regard to the invasion of <st1:place w:st="on">East Timor</st1:place>]. This task was given to me, and I carried it forward with not inconsiderable success." (A Dangerous Place, Little Brown, 1980, p. 247) Later, he admitted that as American ambassador to the UN, he had defended a "shameless" Cold War policy toward <st1:place w:st="on">East Timor</st1:place>. (source: Wikipedia)

    Mars retrograde: February 20 - May 12, 1982

    The <st1:place w:st="on">Falklands</st1:place> War

    <st1:country-region w:st="on">Argentina</st1:country-region> was in the midst of a devastating economic crisis and large-scale civil unrest against the military junta that was governing <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Argentina</st1:place></st1:country-region> in the period leading up to the war. The government, headed by President General Leopoldo Galtieri, decided to play off long-festering nationalistic sentiment by launching what it thought would be a quick and easy war to reclaim the <st1:place w:st="on">Falkland Islands</st1:place>. The ongoing tension between the two countries over the islands increased on 19 March when 50 Argentines landed on the British dependency of <st1:place w:st="on">South Georgia</st1:place> and raised their flag, an act that is seen as the first offensive action in the war. On 2 April, Galtieri ordered the invasion of the <st1:place w:st="on">Falkland Islands</st1:place>, triggering the Falklands War.

    Though initially surprised by the Argentine attack on the South Atlantic islands, <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Britain</st1:place></st1:country-region> launched a naval task force to engage the Argentine navy and air force, and deployed Royal Marines on the ground. After heavy combat, the British eventually prevailed and the islands remained under British control, although as of 2005, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Argentina</st1:country-region> has still not relinquished its claim to the <st1:place w:st="on">Falkland Islands</st1:place>. The political effects of the war were strong in both countries. The Argentine loss prompted even larger protests against the military government, which prompted its downfall, while a wave of patriotic sentiment swept through the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">United Kingdom</st1:place></st1:country-region>, bolstering the government of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. (source: Wikipedia)

    Mars retrograde: March 18 - June 4, 1999

    The Kosovo War

    NATO's bombing campaign on <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Yugoslavia</st1:place></st1:country-region> lasted from March 24 to June 10, 1999.

    The legitimacy of NATO's bombing campaign in Kosovo has been the subject of much debate. NATO did not have the backing of the United Nations to use force in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Yugoslavia</st1:place></st1:country-region> but justified its actions on the basis of an "international humanitarian emergency". Criticism was also drawn by the fact that the NATO charter specifies that NATO is an organization created for defence of its members, but in this case it was used to attack a non-NATO country which was not directly threatening any NATO member. NATO countered this argument by claiming that instability in the Balkans was a direct threat to the security interests of NATO members, and military action was therefore justified by the NATO charter.

    The war inflicted many casualties. <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Yugoslavia</st1:place></st1:country-region> claimed that NATO attacks caused between 1,200 and 5,700 civilian casualties. Human Rights Watch counted a minimum of 500 civilian deaths in 90 separate incidents. NATO acknowledged killing at most 1,500 civilians. The majority of deaths appear to have been within Kosovo itself; there were up to 5,000 military casualties according to NATO estimates, while the Serbian figure is around 1,000. Large numbers of Albanian civilians were also killed, although the exact numbers are unclear. (source: Wikipedia)

  25. Venus retrograde


    What is Venus retrograde?


    From time to time, due to the relative motion of the Earth and Venus around the Sun, as we look to the sky, Venus appears to make a stop and go backwards. This is the so called retrograde movement, it happens every 18 months or so, and it lasts for about 40 days, which represents 7% of the time. Of all planets, Venus is the one that has the shorter retrograde movement.

    What would be the astrological influence of Venus' retrograde movement?


    By definition, Venus is the planet of love and marriage, of relationships and diplomacy, of art and beauty, of fashion and luxury, of money and pleasures.

    Going backwards, the venusian influence is diminished, disturbed or internalized, so that the above mentioned areas are afflicted in a way or another.

    During this time, feelings are not easily expressed, everyone seems to need more affection and love; also, those with relational issues will have to face the reality. The general advise is to focus on older relationships, to try to make them work, or to understand our true feelings. It will be harder to understand what others feel, though.

    We may meet old friends or someone we loved or cared for a long time ago, which might reactivate old feelings, possibly forgotten.

    The artistic sensibility is lower than normal or perverted, so that we might buy clothes or artwork that we'll reject after Venus goes back to direct motion. Therefore it is advised not to buy jewelery or other similar expensive stuff, as we might regret it later. However, Venus retrograde is a good time to buy antiques, artwork of historical value or just second-hand art objects, if you can evaluate them correctly.

    What is definitely to avoid during this time?


    Weddings, opening of a fashion store, beauty salon, art gallery, launching of a women magazine, buying expensive items of venusian nature, radical changes of the personal look, house redecorations, big parties or other important social events, investments and so on.

    What should we do, then?



    • clean-up the house and decide which old objects of sentimental value to keep and which to throw away or sell.
    • renegociate a contract or a bank loan (but we shouldn't apply for a new one)
    • discuss and clarify things in the current relationship, as our understanding on own feelings is increased, which is not true about others' feelings, requiring open and sincere communication
    • ask genuinely for forgiveness for our mistakes
    • contact friends or other persons we care about in order to continue the relationship
    • develop our capability to love anyone unconditionally, by meditations, prayers and other spiritual activities

    And last but not least, try to remember how it was and how it felt when Venus was retrograde in the past, thus learning from your own experience:
