There is a good reason why this star occupies our imagination and is at the core of who we are, our essence, the nourishment for our soul which helps us relate and explore this planetary plane through the senses bestowed to the soul in this human form! It takes 8 minutes for light to travelContinue reading “Sun- The eternal one.”

Mars- Courage unlimited.
Mars has been my favorite, of all the planets, with its uncanny resemblance to earth like features, it being the central theme to many stories of sci-fi to the philosophical aspect of what it represents! Mars for me is the postcard of the Universe that shows what would have happened if the Earth moved aContinue reading “Mars- Courage unlimited.”
Venus, also called as “Shukra” through vedic texts- the benefactor of all learnings and divine power to the Asuras. The statement for beauty, opulence, creative expression, all that shines, glitters, is royal in its stature but mysteriously also opens the eternal world of the occult and creates unparalleled ability to master and share the learningsContinue reading “Deciphering Venus”
Saturn- The Karmayogi.
Astrologers and people alike have always been awestruck by this one planet that seems to have hung over and above everyone and anyone- one planet that doesn’t mind being what it represents and goes about manifesting what is stands for without prejudice and discrimination! This is a short piece to perhaps the most beautiful ofContinue reading “Saturn- The Karmayogi.”
You and your graha-nakshatra cocktail!
What a lot of people often keep on complaining (and many times rightly so!) that astrologers have not been able to give accurate- or even moderately decent predictions pertaining to any specific questions that they have been asked about! As trivial as this may seem, there could be some genuine reasons- like an astrologer mayContinue reading “You and your graha-nakshatra cocktail!”
Understanding the Moon.
Moon- the significator of the mind- the only satellite that has been made part of astrology apart from our Sun and the other planets! The old masters were right to believe and even today, the Moon is perhaps the only celestial object (apart from the Sun) whose impact on our day-to-day life can be visiblyContinue reading “Understanding the Moon.”
Perhaps the most misunderstood and wrongly portrayed among all the planets and Sun, given the fact that these have been essentially “Shadow planets” not real- with few concepts believing them to be the nodes of the Moon- Rahu being the North node and Ketu representing the South node! Personally speaking I believe them to beContinue reading “Rahu-Ketu: Magic,Mystery,Miracle”
The interplay of Mars-Jupiter-Saturn!
As a student of astrology, perhaps these are the best times when you want to be a witness, observe and learn life lessons from these three magnificent planets! Like my other articles on astrology, I am not going into the routine effects, benefits or adverse effects of the planets, but we will discuss more broadlyContinue reading “The interplay of Mars-Jupiter-Saturn!”
Astrology- the real essence of it!
Before I start sharing my experience with astrology through planets and nakshatras, it is very important to share an important aspect into what it actually is and what it really means! (at least from the stand point that I see it!). This is one subject (possibly after politics) where, no one can ever claim knowingContinue reading “Astrology- the real essence of it!”
Welcome to Astrology!
I couldn’t have been much happier then to write about a subject that has fascinated me for such a a long time. A subject whose student I have been for the last 30 years and there is yet to learn something new each day! Join me here,in a journey to simplify and understand the conceptsContinue reading “Welcome to Astrology!”
