Stock Market Predictions January 2015

By Kshitij Sharma, Dec 21, 2014

Looking back at the previous month – December 2014, my predictions about the profit taking and market going down were bang on. The on place where I failed miserably was my reading on the oil prices. I had predicted that oil prices will break the downward trend and will up up, but looks like भगवान को कुछ और ही मंज़ूर था… I need to learn more… Not only was the crude down, it broke years of support levels. The other statement that did not work was on food (or retail) inflation – it did not go up and on the other hand, CPI fell to a record low of 4.38 per cent from 5.52 per cent in October.

Dual House Ownership in Horoscope

By Kshitij Sharma, Dec 03, 2014

Planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn own two signs each in Vedic Astrology where we do not take Uranus, Neptune and Pluto into account. Sun and Moon have ownership of just one sign each. This complicates matters for some new astrologers who aren’t able to judge the true nature of the planet and ascertain the effect of the planet in the chart as benefic or malefic. This article is an extension of the benefic/malefic planet article that I wrote way back in 2009 and should be read along with it. Please refer to the points on who the malefics and benefics are as I will not repeat it here. Based on the points, and the dual sign ownership, aContinue reading
