Saturn Mars Conjunction August 2014

By Kshitij Sharma, Aug 11, 2014

Effect of Mars/Saturn conjunction on various rashis, natal horoscope and on day to day affairs is described in the article. Saturn and Mars will be conjunct on August 25th/26th. The exact conjunction will occur around midnight of August 25th, going into August 26th. Their latitudinal degrees are different, and therefore the planets will not eclipse each other, but will appear pretty close. This will not be a photo opportunity as for Venus Jupiter conjunction a week before. Mars is fast moving planet, but Saturn is the slowest planet of the astrological system. This phenomenon occurs once approximately 2 years. This time, the conjunction is seen in Libra rashi, Vishakha nakshatra at 204°. The two planets will be at planetary warContinue reading

Venus Jupiter Conjunction August 2014

By Kshitij Sharma, Jul 24, 2014

On August 18, Venus and Jupiter will be conjunct. They will come close to the exact longitudinal degree early morning on August 18. Both Jupiter and Venus are pretty bright planets and thus it will be a great planetary spectacle in the early morning sky during this while.  This conjunction is happening in the Cancer sign and Pushya Nakshatra at Cancer 13°, hence very close the middle of the sign and will be thus visible in the sky. Since they will be rising in the sky before sunrise, it it a possibility to photograph the event too. I will certainly try. Venus is a fast moving planet. It zips through the sky moving from one sign in the horoscope toContinue reading

Astrology and Stamps

By Kshitij Sharma, Jul 19, 2014

When I was a kid, my hobby was collecting stamps. I started at the age of 10 and till the time I went to college, I kept buying all sorts of stamps – Indian, foreign… all shapes and sizes. At one time, I had a full book of over a thousand stamps. I was quite proud of the collection that contained some of the very first stamps of India, those issued on the day of Indian independence, Republic Day etc. Then one day, someone stole the entire collection. Not one stamp, not a page, but the entire collection. I was distraught but could not do much. We could never figure out who stole the stamp book. We have our suspects,Continue reading

Stock Market and Astrological Aspects

By Kshitij Sharma, Jul 16, 2014

Hello Readers, These are my very preliminary and basic notes on how stock markets are predicted using Vedic Astrology. These are derived from the bible of Mundane Astrology that is Brihat Samhita. Brihat Samhita describes the matter/material associated with planets and then the movement of planets through various signs and nakshatras affects the demand and supply and price movement in commodities and stock market. There are not a lot of learning matter available for Vedic Astrology and I am in process of getting a book called Vyapar Ratna which is supposed to contain specifics on movement in commodities markets. Some information is also derived from Muhurta Chintamani that talks about when we can/should spend/invest/loan money. I apologize that there areContinue reading
