Astrology Notes


Year End Musings of An Astrologer

By Kshitij Sharma, Dec 26, 2016

People turn towards doctors and astrologers only when they are facing problems. They go with symptoms, expect the symptoms to reveal the real root cause of the problem and then expect the problem to be resolved through various means. In case of astrologers, these remedies are expected to be mantras, tantras and ratnas. While correct diagnosis of disease by a doctor leads to a line of treatment, the root cause identified by an astrologer may not lead to a sure shot remedy. Like viral fever, the problems indicated by a horoscope must run its course. Its a problem with Karma, that you are going through a problem at this point must indicate that something from the past life or thisContinue reading

Saturn's Transit to Sagittarius

By Kshitij Sharma, Nov 12, 2016

Saturn moves to Sagittarius in the afternoon of January 26th 2017 for a horoscope calculated for Bangalore to begin its approx 2.5-3 years journey in this sign. Although Saturn and Jupiter belong to two different camps in Astrology, Saturn considered Jupiter to be neutral and hence Saturn is well placed in this sign. The favourable attributes weigh more heavily than the unfavourable ones. Right sense of responsibilities and focus are indicated due to this combination. For Saturn in a person's chart in Sagittarius, he may be very unadventurous and unconventional in outlook. The person is predictable, reliable and does not venture out of the path set by others. On the negative side, the person can be quite rigid in hisContinue reading

Urjit Patel, RBI Governor

By Kshitij Sharma, Aug 21, 2016

It is always interesting to see how some of the bureaucrats who are born in last week of October when Sun is in debilitation/neecha.

His time of birth is unknown and hence the current article is based on his Moon sign. Looking at his horoscope, Sun has just crossed the deepest debilitation point and is at 10°53'. It is still not out ofContinue reading
