Ascendant Nakshatra Pada Calculation Error

By Kshitij Sharma, May 19, 2006

Hi All,

A problem was reported by Sumit SD who observed the behavior of the application while generating this birth chart of his son. There was a mistake in calculating the nakshatra pada of the ascendant.
I have isolated the problem and fixed it. The new version of the software will be uploaded as soon as possible, probably by the end of the week. Meanwhile, please ignore this entry – it is not of a lot of consequence. There is no mistake in nakshatra/padas of rest of the planets as this problem was specific to ascendant calculation. I would like to emphasize that this problem does not in any way affect the chart matching application because chart matching is based on Moon’s nakshatra/pada. 
This problem is fixed in version – 4.3.0020.

    Dear Kshitij ji,
    Thank you very much for the excellent service of horoscope compatibility that you are providing. I wish to marry one girl but when we checked our compatibilty we found that we get only 11 points. Could I send you a message with birth details of both of us for your valuable opinion?

    dear Sir
    Would you consider allowing me to study the source code of the program, partilularly the part that does the planetary calculations.

    i wish this for only educational and non-commercial purposes.

    thanking you,
    ananda

    I will send across a site that has exactly the information you are trying to get. It is not the calculations that I am using, but something very similary.

    thank you. You could post the same link here.

    the link you gave jyotish.sourceforge.net has nothing.

    I found a java port of swiss-eph but am not sure how accurate it is for Vedic charts.

    thanks a lot.

    Dear Sharmaji,
    I tried to generate image of my birth chart and the other divisional charts. There is an error. Except for the birth chart and Navamsha, other divisional charts are not generating image. When I tried to get the image of Shodadashamsha and others, the navamsha chart is again and again appearing.

    I read the FAQs page to come to know about “astrology in your life”. Even I am so deeply interested in astrology, but did not get any chance to get into any special course for this. I believe that there should be one guru under whose guidance we should learn this. I had also asked astrologer if I can also become one like him and that I am drawn towards astrology to a great extent. He told me to concentrate on my accountancy field. I was wondering if he didnt want another person to take away his livlihood or is the planetary positions not favorable for me to become an astrologer.

    Please check out with the software error.
