Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam!

 Citizen's of India loved him, scientists admired him and politicians respected him as his life was pure inspiration for all of us. A few years ago, Dr Kalam started a campaign asking a simple question - ‘What can you do for the nation?’ Let’s pledge our commitment to work for our nation. Let’s honor his life by uniting in mourning the passing of a great Indian leader, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam!

LOVE, MONEY, BEAUTY, CAR, MARRIAGE and retrograde Venus 
No matter who you are (please do not include saints and seers in this!), I am very convinced, you may desire good looks, love, money and comforts in life, whether it's a gadget you're coveting, a car you want to buy, or a brand you feel you desire to wear, going to beauty salon for pampering, we all have a bit of a materialistic side, we all do it to some extent, even if we don't go overboard. Materialism is one of those ugly words that gets thrown around a lot and it sounds horrible, being categorized as materialistic person, with reactions like ‘I am not materialistic person’..uff!! Regardless of how much or why, we are always wanting things and in astrology we give a reason for this. In our horoscope charts, there is a planetary cabinet with a special portfolio for love, money, beauty, all luxury comforts and most important all matters related with WOMEN and this special portfolio goes to-VENUS. You are looking for marriage, or having problems in marriage or maybe it is money, look how planet Venus is placed and influenced in your chart.
Okay, now the big celestial news- planet Venus will retrograde from July 25 to September 6. What does this mean to you and me?? All things that are assigned to planet Venus in its portfolio will go weak. This is typically a challenging time for all relationships, especially romantic ones. Since Venus rules beauty, astrologically this is not the best time (that is starting from 25th July through September 6!) to bring any big changes to your looks. It is astrologically not recommended to make any dramatic changes to your appearance, such as to get different hair color or cut your hair in a very different style. As there is a possibility that you may not like or enjoy the results. Please don’t get me wrong, you can schedule routine hair trims and so forth, that is you can go for your regular the tried-and-tested beauty treatments but not anything new and dramatic. Now, here I would also like to add, these days men are equally conscious about their looks (some men esp. Taurus/Libran ruled by planet Venus may spend more time styling than women), so this planetary tide is also for them. Men, if you were thinking of shaving your beard or growing one, do it before 25th July or wait until 6th September.
When Venus is retrograde, it is also not best time for getting married. However, your ex or someone you loved or liked could come back while Venus is in reverse; such is the nature of ‘love in times of retrograde Venus’!
If, you want to buy new car, I would advise you to wait until September 6th.
In Vedic astrology, a retrograde planet is considered a weak planet, withholding its strongest beams.

@ndtv belief in science


With all due respect to astrophysicist Professor Jayant Narlikar, @shekargupta, @ndtv Our belief system, what we perceive as reality, is an earthly prison. Science is now modern age RELIGION. @ShekharGupta @ndtv Nobody knows anything for sure but THINK they know everything. When Newton discovered gravity did it not exist before? Did gravity come into being at the moment he discovered it? What I fail to understand though, is making fun of astrologers and faith of people when something is not understood. The most important astronomers before Isaac Newton were also astrologers by profession, to name a few– Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, and Galileo Galilei. Aryabhat, the father of Indian astronomy, his contemporary Varahamhir, was the celebrated authority on astrology. There are many more but that’s not the point, the point here is earlier astronomers were also astrologers, and we today want to believe they were half right in their pursuit of science but half wrong in their pursuit of astrology…why on what basis???
By proving some astrologers (with limited knowledge of the field, I may also humbly include my name on the list too!) wrong in their predictions is not right justification of calling astrology wrong.
If all of us think alike: ‘accept science and discredit astrology or similar belief system’, nobody will be able to cross transition zone and we will all remain same, thinking and doing similar things for centuries and generations to come!!!  
It’s an accepted part of our culture today not to have beliefs or faith but I, as a science person and also an astrologer, do not want to be guided by any limitations and truly explore all possibilities.

Jupiter and Politicians

With Saturn in Scorpio and Jupiter in Cancer, the planets were in perfect harmony. But from 14th July 2015, planet Jupiter will shift to next sign (Leo). As per Vedic astrology, Jupiter is generally considered to be the most benefic planet of the planetary kingdom. This planetary shift will affect politicians the most. The heads of states, senior bureaucrats, Ministers of states, Presidents and governors, law enforcing authorities and those who are placed at top positions will feel this shift.

Judiciary, Judges and Supreme court from now onwards may corner those who are at fault.

Planet Saturn rules over your sign. Astrologically July heralds a period of change as Jupiter, the planet of divine help and good luck, will shift to next sign on 14th July. Astrologers consider Jupiter shifting to next sign as important cosmic event bringing positive changes and developments. In next one year, matters related to capital venture, loans, inheritance, joint income or business, shared wealth or property, business partnership, rental incomes, and investments, debts, taxes, and joint finances may have to be resolved in this one year period. All financial issues (I have listed above) are important, maybe not directly but indirectly, to your financial growth. How much an individual earns is always important but equally important is how that money is invested, for example:- if you invest money in any venture which instead of growing is stagnant (if not depreciating in value) or you have some real estate property and now may want to put out on lease, etc etc, these just two examples I have listed to show you. With change in planets this month destiny gives you another chance to sort all these financial matters profitably. Menial tasks or work where you have to interact with labor workers may tend to take priority. Your enemies may also increase and this may cause some conflict on the work-front. Health and physical fitness is one area I would, as an astrologer, like you to appreciate. From 17th, you can think of joining a gym or maybe yoga class. Medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more apt to be successful. Some people are luckier than others, because they intuitively know how to take advantage of favorable planetary tide!

As per Vedic astrology, planet Saturn rules over your sign. Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, shifted to next sign on 14th July. Astrologers consider Jupiter shifting to next sign as important cosmic event bringing positive changes and developments. For you Aquarius, it creates marriage yoga for the unmarried and if you are already married then this beautiful planetary tide will help improve your relationship with your spouse. This is one of the luckiest times for relationships and love matters. This is the time to meet your made-in-heaven match, and your social life improves. There is another way of looking at this beautiful planetary tide, something important and positive may occur in your husband/wife’s life that will bring happiness in family. Business in partnership, negotiations, and contractual agreements or hiring an agent for promotion is also a favored during this period as good publicity may come your way. If your work takes you before the public, or you have to meet various clients, you can expect your popularity to rise. Remember, life can either be something you embrace or something you hide from, so stop making things complicated and just live your life as stars favor you!

As per Vedic astrology, planet Jupiter rules over your sign and, on 14th July, your ruling planet will shift to next sign. As human beings, how we spend each day of our life, whether enjoying, slaving or in tension, defines us more than anything else. Too many people live their lives with the thought that they will be millionaires, of course it is possible but it is not something that can bring lasting peace or happiness unless how you spend your each day is fulfilling and Pisces, this is where planets will help and support you. In one year from 14th, any changes you desire in your day-to-day life should be positive and well thought out. If you are not working now or you want to change work, planets position from now and in coming one year will help you find work. You may get a new job or significantly improve an existing one. If you have your own work, then you will find bigger and better projects and clients. As I mentioned at the start of my forecast for you, how you spend your daily energy will be important for you and will give you a sense of fulfillment, which is likely to improve your health and energy level. This is why ancient astrologers considered this transit also beneficial for health. Joining a gym or yoga class will further help you achieve this forever illusive fulfillment and happiness. Whenever in doubt ask yourself whether what you are doing right now really is the best you could be doing. If you follow his advice and always act according to this knowledge, I can confidently say in coming one year you will have a life worth reliving. You will also have financial benefits and an increase in income, although, expenditure will also increase, so make a financial budget in this situation.
