  1. I had guided children in CHOOSING their EDUCATION  and young adults  in CHOOSING  the Career.   The horoscope is examined by me  and the following aspects are taken into consideration.
  2. The SECOND HOUSE gives information about the possibility of education.
  3. The FOURTH HOUSE is the second House for the SECOND house; [Bhavath bhavam],  Hence this House should also be analyzed.
  4. Mother is the first Guru who teaches the newly born baby how to suck Milk . She nurtures  the baby like changing naps  and trains while growing.  She is the first companion .When teen age comes mother guides the daughter  while Father takes care of the Son.  4th House in vedic Astrology governs the Mother  and 9th House the Father.  Western Astrology considers  10th House for the Father.
  5. Father is the Spiritual Guru of the grown up Son . and 9th house in Astrology represents the Spirituality and also Bhaghyasthana.
  6. The fifth House can give information about the possibility of getting educational degrees like Graduation , MBA, MCA, and  MTech , PhD , MS  and research part etc. requires Bhaghyam and 9th House will take care of. and signifies knowledge & education.   
  7. Hence, it is necessary to consider the 5th and 9th Houses, while analyzing the educational capabilities of an individual.
  8. Nowadays we are seeing Students doing Engineering but joining in an IT Company getting training in Computers. I had seen many after completing Engineering degree are doing Agriculture or marketing small products and growing. 
  9. There are students not shining in education but rises to great heights in Sports. We can quote Tendulkar in this respect.

  • In the Modern day there  are many options  to  choose  from  innumerable Professional Courses  and  the Parents  for that matter  Students are also  in a dilemma  at the Cross road to choose the correct path.
  • And as you’re talking about your lackluster job or about feeling lost in your career path, a well-meaning friend or relative responds with, “Well, what do you want to do?”
  • Silence.  If only it were that easy, right?  Choosing a new career—whether you want to do a drastic 180 or just make a minor shift—can seem downright impossible. There are so many options. You don’t know what you’re qualified to do.

1.    Hindus mostly perform all Auspicious, Important and New Tasks during a good Muhurtha.   There are good Muhurthas and bad muhurthas throughout the day and these also vary according to the day of the week.
2.    Muhurtha is a measurement of time in Hindu Calender called Panchang.  A Muhurtham is measured as 30 kalas which is made up of 30 kashthas which in turn is made up of 18 nimeshas (the number of twinklings of an eye is one kashtha).
3.    There is one muhurtham which is a constant for all the days of the week and any task can be started on any day in that Muhurtham.   And that is called the Braahmi Muhurtham.   This is a time that is 90 minutes before Sunrise.   ‘Braahmi’ in Sanskrit means Saraswathi, the Goddess of knowledge and intellect. This is thus also a great time for acquiring knowledge and intelligence.
4.    I advise the students to get up early and start reading or Revising at this time to remember  thoroughly  and can Write Exam better
5.    The logic and reasoning behind the value of this time is that the Sun starts spreading its Sunlight and energy during this time. The rays of this light affect the human brain positively. These rays are light-blue.  (Called ” Neelalohitaha” )   Due to this the cells in the brain get activated.  The rest of nature is pleasant and peaceful during this time. The mind, as has been proved also by Western science, is a powerful tool to awaken and spread electrical and magnetic charges. These uplift the individual who performs meditation and penance during this time.
6.    Western experts have agreed that the Sun provides important ingredients to earth such as electrical and magnetic charges which charge the earth and its inhabitants with vital energy. It also provides much needed food for plants. And these plants emanate oxygen which is vital for the sustenance of humankind. They have also agreed that rising early causes improved blood circulation. The lungs are pumped with healthy and fresh air (our ancient sages created the Yoga and pranayama thousands of years ago to benefit from this).
7.    When you go for a walk in the early morning, your mind will be  working in ideal conditions and you find answers to your problems since the brain is calm. In the night, the atmosphere gets re-charged and in the early morning, the wind is charged with the beneficial rays of the Moon and Stars. This wind is called ‘Veera vayu’  which is greatly beneficial to us. Our minds are sharpened and inspired and our bodies are filled with a new life-force.

8.   It is a little difficult to rise at 4.30 a.m., but if you can go to bed by 9 p.m. or 9.30 p.m., you can get up early. And once you do it for a few days and start seeing the benefit, you will make it a habit.

  1. Let me thank Mr. K.Gopala krishnan for giving the idea.

1. Our ancient Rishis had done Research on all the events connected with our Life to lead a happy Life.   Chaturvidha Purusharthas are prescibed in our Scriptures.   For the developement of  Dharma and to earn Artha for attaining Kama (or materialistic happiness)  in a  Dharmic fashion.  Finally the main aim of life is to attain Moksha.

2. For attaining Moksha in ones own humble way and to lead a Dharmic life we should pray to any God of our liking. 

3.  Our  ancient Astrologers had prescribed a God to worship depending on the placement of Planets in our Horoscope.

  1. Each deity or God has unique      characteristics and unique powers to offer to the worshipper.  Deities are worshipped mainly for two      important reasons, viz for material or worldly success and secondly to      attain Nirvana or Moksha. Worshipping of lower level deities, like of      bhootas and pretas, are normally discouraged as it hinders the evolvement      of soul to higher dimension.
  2.  Deities are chosen depending upon various factors and few of them are here….     Here is the list of planets that signify respective deities…
  3. A.     A guru or spiritual teacher chooses a deity for his disciple.
  4. B.      Deities are selected based on the problem one faces.
  5. C.       Deities are selected based on interests.
  6. D.     They are also selected based on Chakras.
  7. E.      The deities are selected based on the Horoscope.
  1.  Sun is for lord Shiva
    Moon is for Goddess Parvati
    Mars is for lord Karthikeya
    Mercury is for lord Narayana
    Jupiter is for Dakshinamoorthy
    Venus is for Goddess Maha Lakshmi
    Saturn is for lord Hanuman
    Rahu is Naga Devta or Bhadra Kali etc
    Ketu is by lord Ganesha
  2.       The deities that have to be worshipped also depends upon the 5th lord from the Lagna, and the list of the same is given below…
  3. For Mesha Lagna – lord Shiva.
    For Rishaba and Kumbha Lagna – lord Narayana.
    For Mithuna and Makara Lagna – Goddess Lakshmi.
    For Kataka and Dhanus – lord Muruga.
    For Simha and Vrishika – lord Dakshinamoorthy.
    For Thula and Kanya Lagna – lord Hanuman.
    For Meena – Goddess Parvati.
  4.       In addition to these factors, there is a specific chart called Vimsamsa, which is specifically used for spiritual practices.   It is believed that the dashas of 1,5,8,9 and 12 are very good for spiritual growth.
  5.       Another important rule is, if the most planets are linked or associated with 12th house or 12th lord, the person will become spiritual.
  6.      Generally it is seen that in good Dasha and good Bhukti, a person will be able to meet holy men, and will be in a position to visit spiritual places, and also will make progress in meditation. And in bad Dasha and Bhukti, the person is mostly miserable, and would avoid thinking about God.
  7. Thinking about God, both in good and bad time will evolve a person into higher consciousness.

Who is Vastu Purusha

What is Vastu Purusha Mandala ?

  1. In order to understand Vaastu Shastra, it is necessary to understand the Vaastu Purusha Mandala, which is energy grid of square. The Vaastu Purusha Mandala is the basic form in architecture and all other figures are derived from this elementary design. We can understand vaastupurush better with the  image given in any VASTU texts:
  2. It provides the method that determines the requirements of architecture in relation to its directions. Each direction is allotted a particular role by the Vaastu Ratnakara. Every part of the Vaastu Purusha’s body is sacred and contains energies that help us in living a contented and peaceful life.
  3. Each work has its nature and features. Aforesaid knowledge gives us the appropriate direction for a desired work such as where and how to construct a room, outer structure and interior arrangement of rooms according to the nature of work so that we do our work without any problem and handedness.
  4. This knowledge tells us about the nature and work of directions and what kind of work is to be done in which direction. Vaastu knowledge advices what kind of work is best in which directions at where it is medium, normal or average and which direction is prohibited for concerned work.
  5. Vaastu Purusha is present in each and every plot whether it is big or small. It has a fixed and peculiar body. Its head remains hanging down and its body is spread all over the length and breadth of the ground. There is an interesting story in the MATSYA PURANA in which the birth of the Vaastu Purusha is narrated. By reading that story, one knows why the worship of the Vaastu Purusha is necessary before beginning the construction of any house.
  6. While fighting with the demon, Shiva was very much tired and began to sweat profusely. A man was born from the drops of the sweat of Shiva. He looked very cruel. He was very hungry. So he began to make penance to appease Lord Shiva and get a boon from Him.
  7. Shiva was pleased with his penance and appeared before him. The devotee prayed to Shiva, “Oh Lord! Please permit me to eat away all the three worlds.” Shiva said, “Let it be so.” The joy of that devotee knew no bounds. He got possession on all the three worlds and first he was ready to eat the terrestrial world. Then the celestial beings, Brahma, Shiva and the demons (Rakshasas) also were terrified and caught hold of the devotee encircling him.

Forty-five celestial beings, out of whom 32 from without and 13 from within caught hold of the devotee.

These celestial Beings laid force on the different limbs of the devotee and sat on them as shown below:
ISH (AGNI) – head; APA – face; PRITHWI DHARA & ARYAM – Chest; AVANTSA – heart; DITI & INDRA – Shoulders; SURYA & SOMA – Hands; RUDRA & RAJAYAKSHMA – left arm; SAVITRA & SAVITA – right arm; VIVASWAN & MITRA – Stomach; PUSHA & ARYAMA – Wrist; ASUR & SESHA – left side; VITATHA & GRAHAKSHAT – right side; YAMA & VARUNA – Thighs; GANDHARVA & PURAMADAN – on the knees; SUGRIV & BHRISH – shanks; DWARIKA & MRIGA – ankles; JAYA & SHAKRA – on the hairs grown on the feet; BRAHMA – on the heart.

Being bound like that, the devotee laid down there only. Since then, he has been lying there surrounded by the celestial Beings and thus he is known as “the God of Vaastu or VAASTU PURUSHA”.

“You will be known as `VASTUPURUSHA’. You will tease the people who construct buildings and temples, dig wells and tanks on the side towards which you see and in the direction towards which you hold your feet, to your heart’s content. You may trouble and even devour those people who construct the aforesaid buildings and temples etc. in the direction where you lay your head and back and those who lay foundation stone without worshipping you or without satisfying you with `Homa’ and the like. Then the Vaastu Purusha was quite satisfied. Since then the worship of Vaastu-Purusha has been in vogue and it has become compulsory for those who want to construct any kind of building. ”

Vaastu Purusha, being arrested like this, said to the Gods, “Oh Celestial Beings! You have all caught hold of me and tied me on all the sides. How long shall I be like this, in this position hanging my head down like a prisoner? What shall I eat?” Listening to these words, the celestial Beings said, “Today is Bhadrapada Shukla Triteeya Saturday and `Visakha Star’; So, you lie down here on the ground changing your position once in three months, i.e. from `Bhadrapada’ to `Kartik’ you lie down putting your head in the Eastern direction and your feet towards the West. During the months of `Margashira’, `Pushyam’ and `Magha’, you lie down towards the South looking towards the West and put your feet towards the North. During the months of `Phalgun’, `Chaitra’ and `Vaisakh’, put your head towards the West and feet towards the East looking towards the North. In the months of `Jyeshtha’, `Ashadha’ and `Sravana’, put your head towards the North and the feet towards the South and look towards the East. Whatever side you may turn, you will have to lie down on the left side only.

The ancient Indian text Mayamatam on Vastu Sastra, written thousands of years ago,  explains the legend of the Vastu Purusha. According to Hindu mythology, in the beginning Brahma the creator of the Universe, experimented with a new creature. He created a large cosmic man, who grew rapidly as he began to devour everything in his path to satisfy his insatiable hunger. When he became unmanageably big so that his shadow fell on the Earth like a permanent eclipse, the gods Shiva and Vishnu begged Brahma to do something before everything was destroyed by this Creature.
Brahma realised his mistake and called the Astha Dikapalakas – the Gods of the eight
cardinal directions. Together, they overpowered the monster and held it flat against the
Earth while Brahma jumped on it’s middle. Then the Monster cried  out to Brahma, “You
created me like this. So why am I being punished?” Brahma offered him a compromise and
made the Monster immortal with the boon that he would be worshiped by any mortal that
builds a structure on earth. He was named Vastu Purusha.

The diagram above, known as Vastu Mandala, illustrates how the Vastu Purusha was pinned down by Brahma and the 44 Gods – face down, with his head to the North East and feet towards South West. It is divided in to 9×9 = 81 parts. These Gods rule various aspects of life and have certain inherent qualities. Hence while constructing a building, the purpose/function of a room must be in tune with the nature of the deity placed and ruling that part. This is illustrated in the next picture. Not many houses are likely to have that many rooms.

Hence adjustments can be made by combining several areas. One noteworthy point is that in the olden days the central portion ruled by Brahma was kept open.

This picture is the adjustment example for a still smaller place using a 3×3 = 9 combinations.

The house or the place where we live can influence our life’s happiness, wealth, health, and prosperity. This truth told by ancient sages ages ago is known as Vastu Shastra.The Vastu Shastra is the Vedic science of building or architecture. Vastu shastra helps us to create buildings that favorably influence our lives and brings us happiness.

Vastu Shastra considers the astrological location of the Sun, Earth, and other planets during the construction of any building, be it residential or commercial. It guides us as to where the building site should be located, the shape of the site, the proposed shape of the building to be constructed, the direction the building will face, the location of gates, doors, windows, and the building’s general design as a whole.

 By studying the Natal chart and studying the  auspicious and inauspicious yogas of planets in your birth-chart an Astrologer can predict the outcome and strength of the chert 

” When I will get married“ is the usual question posed by any person who is eager to get married. The auspicious planet forming  yogas increase the happiness of the married life while inauspicious one increases stress and tensions. Let us analyse  how to assess these combination in a birth-chart:

1. Seventh house
The seventh house is the house of marriage. Alongwith the seventh house, seventh lord, Mars and Venus are analyzed for match making. If one of them form a relationship with eighth house it creates problem in married life. The health, personality, nature, likes and dislikes can also be predicted from seventh house in the birth-chart. Therefore the position of seventh lord in a house determines about your life partner. For example: if the seventh lord is in kendra your life-partner may belong to same city and place. If it is in ninth house you may get settled far from your place after marriage.

2. Seventh-lord:
The traits and qualities of the seventh-lord influence the nature of your life-partner. For instance: If Mercury is the seventh lord your life-partner is smart and intelligent. He is very practical and have a problem-solving aptitude. If Mars is seventh-lord he is very courageous, hard-working and confident. If Jupiter is the seventh-lord your life-partner is virtuous, moral, mind, religious and knowledgeable. Thus in this way it is followed for other planets.

3. Seventh-lord and other planets:
If the seventh lord forms a relationship with any other planet its qualities can be found in your life-partner. For example: If the seventh lord is located with Ascendant-lord in the birth-chart your life-partner is very loving and caring. There will be a harmonious relationship between you two. If the seventh-lord and fifth-lord are located in twelfth house you will have a love marriage. If they both form a relationship with the eighth house you may have a love marriage against the wishes of your family.

4. Role of Mars:
Mars is important because of two reasons for marriage. One, Mars bless the girl with motherhood in her birth-chart. Second, Manglik dosha is also formed because of the position of Mars in the birth-chart. The position of Mars in nakshatra, planets of nakshatra and navmansh or elsewhere is carefully assessed.

Mars represents the interests, responsibilties, nature and behavior of a girl in her household life. Therefore you can predict about a life-partner of your son by Mars. If Mars is retrograde in birth-chart his life-partner will be a little harsh and rough.

5. Role of Venus
Venus in groom’s birth-chart is the kaarak of life-partner. It bless him with the happiness of a father. During match making the happiness of child in bride and groom’s life is also assessed. It is important and marriage to be fixed after its careful assessment otherwise it may become a reason of stress and tension in married life.

6. Malefic Mars:
Due to the inauspicious effects on Mars a girl may be a little aggressive in nature. Due to which conflicts may occur in married life. Therefore Mars should not be much stronger in a girl’s birth-chart otherwise she may be aggressive and short-tempered in nature.

7.Mars and Other Planets
When Venus, Mars and Jupiter shares a relationship in eleventh house or third house it is very auspicious for your married life. If Sun, Moon and Mars are not in conjunction in the second and twelfth house you and your partner will have a very loving and caring relationship. The position of Mars in the seventh house is not auspicious and give rise to conflicts in your household.

If your birth-sign is seventh from the seventh-lord of your spouse your married life will be happy and blissful. You both will have a compatible relationship and share love and respect.

8. Venus, Moon and Mars Yoga:
When Venus and Moon form a conjunction in Ascendant or seventh house you may face problems in your married life. If Mars also form a yoga with these planets stress and tensions may increase in your married life. Therefore you have to be very careful in that situation.

9. Sun and Mars in Girl’s Birth-chart
If Mars is influenced by malefic effects you may have a lot of problems in your married life. The position of Mars in seventh house is not at all auspicious in girl’s birth-chart. Due to which stress and tension will be high in your household. If Mars is influenced by malefic planets in the seventh house conflicts may occur and peace of the house may get affected. Your life-partner may also be very aggressive, short-tempered and egoistic personality.

10. Navamsa  Chart is also similarly studied before  come to a conclusion.
