Astrology Notes


Born on Moon, Mars?

By Kshitij Sharma, May 25, 2015

With the technology on the verge of taking us to Mars in just a matter of decades, there is a distinct possibility that there can be children born on another planet. A equal possibility is a moon base where human being could settle in near future. This will blow all astrology out of the window as far as horoscopes and birth charts are concerned. The way to construct the horoscope would not change at all. If we move from Earth to Moon or Mars, the nakshatras and others signs in the zodiac will not change much since the distance from Earth to these planets is much much less than compared to the distance to the stars in the Zodiac.

Stock Market Astrology June 2015

By Kshitij Sharma, May 23, 2015

Stock markets in India are essentially flat compared to where they were at the beginning of May.

This is likely to be chaotic till mid of June after which the marketing and communication machinery of the government will be overactive in reaching out to the people. May 2015 Recap (as of May 23, 2015) Bharat Forge did not do well, it showing a sawtooth pattern, rather than the uptrend that was predicted. ABB did well,Continue reading

Stock Market Predictions: May 2015

By Kshitij Sharma, Apr 22, 2015

The month of March and April 2015 have now caused much upheaval in the market. The predictions from March and April both have not caused much cheer in the market as my posts have been indicating.
