The Missing Tara Element

By Kshitij Sharma, January 8, 2007

I get a lot of queries about the Tara element and why it is not being displayed in the Guna Milap applet.

I just did not code it because it is one of the not-so-important fields unlike Graha Maitri, Bhakoot or Nadi Dosha.

Clarifications on Manglik Dosha

By Kshitij Sharma, February 5, 2006

Clarifications on few points of Manglik dosha is required:
  1. I am of the firm opinion that Mars in Lagna does not cause dosha, although it affects 7th house by drishti directly.
  2. Sun, Saturn and Rahu, which are supposed to be cruel planets also cause dosha that can result in misunderstanding and lack of compatibility between prospective husband and wife subsequently leading to divorce/separation. This dosha should be balanced similar to Manglik dosha but it cannot be mixed with Manglik dosha. Please be careful while trying to balance dosha caused by these planets with Manglik dosha.
  3. Dosha caused by Mars in 7th house can only be balanced with Mars in 7th house only and not in any other house.
  4. Dosha caused by Mars in 8th house can only be balanced with Mars in 8th house only and not in any other house.Manglik Dosha Exceptions

My family has been using a calendar that we have been referring throughout.

Manglik Dosha and Chart Matching

By Kshitij Sharma, July 25, 2005

A lot of people write to me about what Manglik dosha is and how important it is for ascertaining horoscope compatibility and in wrecking relationships. I will explain a few things about Mars dosha. Before I start, I would like to emphasize that horoscope compatibility analysis is a job of a well trained and qualified professional astrologer. No software can capture the essence of this process. It is like A.I.; We can make incredibly smart machines, but none of them can match humans in terms of intelligence.
