16 years has gone.16th March 1992 Monday, destiny had snatched my spiritual guru,my maternal grand father,away from me.He was Rahu's gift for me.Almost entire mahadasha of Rahu he guided me through his amazing knowledge on scriptures specially his commendable grip over Mahabharata. In the mahadasha of Rahu and the antardasha of Rahu and Jupiter he injected whole of the mahabharata into my sub-conscious mind.I was hardly 5-6 years then.He was a amazing personality, an authority on Mahabharata, and spiritually evolved soul.He was unparalleled during his times.Even today I am unable to find a man like him around me.I can not imagine my spiritual journey without his initial assistance.It was he who recognized my spiritual tendencies early on, and predicted to my mother that I was going to excel in this field.His death was irreparable loss to me.
New Pope Benedict XVI has been elected on 19th April 2005, 17:50 Local Time at Vatican.
He was born on 16th April 1927, 4:15 MET Marktl (48 N 15 / 12 E 51) Germany.
We will try to understand the impact and the fate of new pope with the help of this data.
He was born when Aquarius ascendant was rising on eastern horizon.Aquarius being a philosophical sign makes him a great teacher, writer and lecturer. He is generous hearted, highly sympathetic, intelligent, posses good memory and capable of dealing with facts. He is reserved and peevish when provoked.
Jupiter is placed in lagna aspected by Rahu from 5th house. Jupiter also has affected by the presence of Venus and Saturn in Kendra's (angular houses) from lagna and as well as from Jupiter itself. Jupiter's placement in lagna makes him a strict religious man who follows his religion with lot of faith and conviction.
Jupiter gives him a magnetic personality. An optimistic spirit, and jovial nature is indicated in his personality.
Self-indulgence especially in regard to gluttony will effect health.
Rahu's aspect over this Jupiter makes him inclined towards occult sciences but a hypocritical super-consciousness towards other religions is also likely to happen.
The health will be generally unsatisfactory. He may likely to go through for treatment other than by medical methods.
Rahu's aspect over lagna makes him appear rather odd and eccentric.
His three planets including lagna lord Saturn are placed in fixed signs make him a fixed, determined and conservative personality.
His ascendant lord Saturn placed in Scorpio in 10th house, the house of achievements and fame exalted him to the highest office in Roman Catholic hierarchy .
As Saturn is retrograde in a deep mystical sign Scorpio, it is very tough for ordinary man to understand his mind and his intentions.
His intentions may be shrouded in mystery and covered with lots of smart wit and intellect.
Look at his first speech after he become Pope
"After the great Pope John Paul II, the Lord Cardinals have elected me, a simple and humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord. I am consoled by the fact that the Lord knows how to act, even with inadequate instruments and above all I entrust myself to your prayers. In the joy of the Risen Lord, trusting in His permanent help, as we go forward the Lord will help us, and His Mother, Mary Most Holy, is on our side Thank you."
You will find conviction, and faith towards his religion in this speech, but you will be surprised to see the words 'simple and humble worker' as he is not a simple and humble man, astrology reveals. A man who has such conviction and determination of Aquarius sign used Jupiter's wisdom and Rahu's hypocrisy to portray himself as a 'simple and humble worker'. This is what Rahu can do to one's personality. If only Jupiter were there in his ascendant without Rahu's aspect he would not be a conservative but traditional and unsympathetic towards other faiths but real upholder of justice and equality and as well as empathy.
I wish to emphasize on his words in millennium peace summit in 2000.
He said the followers of non-Christian religion will not get salvation because they do not consider Jesus Christ to be the only son of God. He also said that there are several shortcomings in non-Catholic religions because they do not consider the Pope to be their leader.
Now you can very well understand the impact of Rahu over his thinking and personality.
Venus is his 4th house in own sign made him a accomplished pianist. Moon in Virgo aspected by Mars and Mercury providing him an analytical and thought-provoking mind with which he may use facts and logic to denounce other's ideas aggressively. He is intelligent and smart and you can not criticize him without going deep into his psyche and ideas .At once he may silence you with his sharp intellect in case you are not prepared with the armory of facts yourself.
Sun in 3rd house makes him a courageous man who is not afraid of taking bold steps. He cares a damn for criticism and opposition. He is a brave man with strong convictions and deliberate will. He is blunt and quite passionate about his kind of truth. Mercury in 2nd house makes him a emotional as well as thought-provoking speaker. he is fluent in many languages owing to good influence of this Mercury.
Ketu in 11th house in the sign of Jupiter makes him somewhat unsympathetic and stubborn with his ideas.
Mars and Rahu in 5th house will not provide him good friends and trusted lieutenants. He may be mistaken by others and may suffer from colic pains. People will find him a hard-hearted man.
Till the age of 28 he had not been passing through the good dasha at all. During World War II he was forced to join the auxiliary anti-aircraft service, but deserted. He was subsequently imprisoned in an Allied POW camp until the end of the war. That time he was passing through the dasha of Saturn in Rahu. Saturn and Rahu making shadashataka (6th/8th) relationship and Saturn also placed in an inimical sign but he survived as Saturn is placed in 10th house.
In Rahu-Ketu he began studies in philosophy and theology at the University of Munich. Look at the Ketu who is posited in the sign of Jupiter the planet of philosophy and Ketu itself a planet for theology. He was ordained as a priest in Rahu-Sun. Sun is exalted and placed 11th from Rahu and 3rd from Ascendant.
As soon as he entered into the dasha of Jupiter he obtained his doctorate in theology. Now his good dasha had been started and he never looked back after that. During Jupiter's dasha from 1953 to 1969 he was into teaching and lecturing quite away from a secret mission to prove Christianity superior to other faiths.
His Saturn dasha began in 1969 and for half of this dasha he was into teaching only. He got two breakthroughs during Saturn dasha, one came in 1969 in Saturn-Saturn when he became a professor of dogmatic theology and of the history of dogma, the second breakthrough came in Saturn-Venus his yogakarka planet and well placed in it's own sign when he was appointed the archbishop of Munich and was also elevated to the post of cardinal during same dasha. During the whole dasha of Saturn he was not very vocal but was preparing himself for his secret mission .Once again look at the Saturn in Scorpio.
Since 1998 he has been passing through the dasha of Mercury maturing as a good speaker and stimulating conversationalist out-witting his opponents. He was elected Vice Dean of the College of Cardinals In Mercury-Rahu and elevated to the post of Dean in Mercury-Jupiter. His secret mission has been realized when he became Pope in Mercury-Saturn for which he was preparing himself from 1972 the phase of Saturn-Mercury.
Soon he is going to enter into the mahadasha of Ketu from November 2005.During this dasha his approach will be uncompromising and unyielding. He will try to execute his ideas with lots of conviction and without being perturbed by the criticism. In that way his reign will be contrary to his predecessor's. He will widely be criticized and opposed for his ideas from inside and outside. Ketu's transition from his moon until September 2006 may spoil his health and a surgery of urinary tract can not complete be ruled out. He will be able to handle technological advancement well as Ketu is well placed in chart and known for it's brilliancy and efficiency.
Let's have look over Sub-periods in Ketu.
Ketu (Nov 2005 -April 2006) --bad for health
Venus (April 2006-June 2007)--OK,known for charitable causes and harmony
Sun (June 2007-Oct 2007)--Good and strong phase, fame is there.
Moon (Oct 2007-May 2008)--Manageable phase but emotional disturbances are there.
Mars (May 2008-Oct 2008)--Bad Phase for health and opposition
Rahu (Oct 2008- Nov 2009)--Bad phase for health and rebellions will dominate.
Jupiter (Nov 2009- Oct 2010)--Mediocre to good.
Saturn (Oct 2010- Nov 2011)--Bad phase as he will be widely criticized.
Mercury (Nov 2011-Nov 2012)--OK phase.
The first half of Ketu dasha will be good except few health problems. The sub-periods of Ketu, Venus, Sun and Moon will be good to average except few health problems. But following sub-periods of Mars and Rahu will disturb him a lot and serious health problems can not be ruled out.
If he passes ketu's second half well only then his reign can be remembered as Venus dasha will be known for charitable causes, but that is highly unlikely in this case.
According to the horoscope at the time when he was elected Pope ,Virgo lagna was rising with retrograde Jupiter and Ketu in it.
This shows that he aggressively and uncompromisingly will execute his ideas will work towards the enforcement of Church doctrine.
He will continue to be against multiculturalism and will regard other religions as deficient.
The nakshatra was Magha and Tithi was Shukla Ekadashi. Nakshatra is not very conducive for election as it is recommended for wars and other hazardous undertaking, but the Tithi is balancing this out as it is recommended for observing vows and other divine festivals.
Health and opponents will disturb him a lot as Saturn being a 6th lord placed in 10th house.
He will make more enemies than his predecessor.
Venus is combust and placed in 8th house and this will make him unsympathetic towards women. He will be stick to his views that ban on women priests is necessary to safeguard doctrine. Even on homo-sexuality and gay marriages he will stick to his earlier stand owing to 8th house Venus.

Shahrukh Khan is the undisputed king of Bollywood. In last 15 years he has been reigning there with much more hit films than anyone else in this film industry. Let's examine what astrology has to say about him and also try to find out an answer whether he may bring an Oscar for India or not?
Shahrukh was born when Leo ascendant was rising. Ascendant Lord Sun is placed in 3rd house, the house of courage, makes him a courageous man who can take risks and can do a tons of hard work. His moon sign is Capricorn also helps him in this. This position of Sun is one of the strongest position in his horoscope as Sun gets his neech bhang yoga with the support of Mars. Whatever he has achieved so far has come from this position of Sun.
Another highlight of his horoscope is the presence of four malefic planets in three angular houses(kendras) other than the ascendant.
Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu all are placed in his Kendra houses. Mars being a yogkaraka for him and Saturn being a Kendra lord and hence ceased to be malefic and apart from this both Rahu and Ketu are exalted in his horoscope make him a undisputed king of Bollywood. He is blessed with all four qualities of a king Saam, Daam, Danda, and Bheda. In prima facie his horoscope looks to be an ordinary one but a careful look will lead you to a horoscope which is blessed with many rajyogas.
Let's have a look on few rajyogas present in his horoscope.
Musala Yoga :-When lagna is in a fixed sign and several planets also in fixed signs, than the effect of this yoga can be felt.
This yoga makes him proud, learned, wealthy, liked by ruler, famous, of stable nature and blessed with good children. He is trustworthy, has stability and durability, is fixed and determined. However he might be obstinate, and unable to take quick decisions and might have difficulty in adapting to change.
Ruchaka Yoga:-When Mars in a Kendra, exalted or in own sign.
This yoga makes him prominent, bold and courageous, full of strength and vigour, and eager to pursue adventurous activities wherefrom name and fame is gained. He is , of royal bearing and ever intent on combat and annihilator of opponents. This yoga helped him a lot to climb the top of the ladder.
These two yogas are a drop in the ocean. There are several others like Shasha Yoga, Durdhara, Veshi, Amala, Parvata, neech-bhanga rajyoga and so on..
Here I wish to add few notes on Rahu, who is exalted and placed in 10th house of name and fame. The credit for lots of achievements he has made in life goes to Rahu. Let me quote the great Dr. B V Raman on Rahu in 10th house.
" There is a tendency to lusts after widows. He will be skilled artist with a flair of poetry and literature. He travels widely and is learned. He will be famous and will engage in business. He will have limited issues. Bold and somewhat adventurous he commits many sins."
I would not like to comment on this quote and leave everything for you to interpret the meaning yourself.
He got his big break in Bollywood when he was passing through the antardasha of MARS his yogkaraka planet and the mahadasha of this same planet Rahu. Soon after he entered into the 16 year mahadasha of Jupiter and getting everything from him name, fame, wealth and honour , absolutely everything one desires for.
After 15 years in Bollywood he is again on the verge of same breakthrough he got 15 years ago, as he has been going to pass through the antardasha of Mars and Rahu in the mahadasha of Jupiter. Mars in Jupiter is running since Nov 2004 and Rahu is approaching fast and will be started from OCT 2005.This dasha will be running for 2 years and 5 months. Before going further I wish to emphasize here that in the next dasha of Saturn I don't expect much as Saturn also has his share of problems he has to face. But Jupiter is not going to end without a bang.
Though Rahu is placed 12th from Jupiter hence may give him few health and home problems but being in 10th from Lagna he is entitled to hog the limelight once again in his career. He is on verge of his second breakthrough, be it in politics or in international fame like getting Oscar to India. He is quite capable of both and in atleast one he will attract limelight, but wherever he goes he will remain a king, that is for sure. I am clearly foreseeing international fame in next few years for Shah Rukh Khan. We wish him good luck for future.!

The navami tithi is also good for debating,competing ,excersing,gambling and for taking other risks. Our vedic seers insight into Muhurta or electional astrology only declares the failure of this cease-fire.
Let's have a look into Kashmir history after independence.Maharaja Hari Singh signed instruments of accession with indian government on 26th October 1947.The ruling sign of Kashmir Libra was heavily afflicted by debilitated Sun,Mars, Saturn and retrograde Mercury. Signing the important papers during the retrogression of Mercury is never considered to be a good idea. Mercury became retrograde on
If we consider
According to Kurma-chakra
Ayodhya is in the news once again. On 6th of December 2000 Prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee made a statement on Ram Mandir Movement that created controversy and since then opposition has halted the proceedings of Parliament . All these events conincide with the eigth anniversary of demolition of Babri Masjid.One question arises why all this is happening after a long gap of 8 years. Though Prime minister's statement seems to be a well timed move but there was an inherent problem in it. The statement appeared on Wednesday, 6th December, in Uttra-bhadrapada nakshtra on Shukla Paksha Dashmi. This is a quite good day for making such statements but unfortunately the yoga was Vyatipata which is considered to be a bad and unfortunate yoga.
We will have to go back into history for knowing more about this controversy. There are few major events which should be listed here.
For astrological purpose we have to analyse few of these dates. The installation of Lord's idols were a planned move as the day suggests. It was done in Shravana , a very good nakshatra for installation the idols. Unfortunately the tithi was Chaturthi and the yoga was Vyaghaat which are not considered to be a good muhurta for auspicious activities. The time was also not chosen rightly as perhaps this was the reason that the idols were in custody for almost 36 years. Let's have a look over the horoscope of that time when the idols were installed. We will use this horoscope as the birth of Lord Rama's temple at Ram Janmabhoomi.
Virgo ascendant was rising at the time when idols were installed. Virgo has Mars and Ketu, both violent planets positioned in it. The fourth house has Sun and Mercury, the fifth house has debilitated Jupiter,Venus, and Moon, the seventh house has Rahu and the twelfth house has Saturn positioned in it . At the time of installation the vimshottari dasha of Moon was operating.
Moon Dasha :( 1949 to 1955 ) : The good thing happened in this dasha was the order of civil court of Ayodhya for continuing the daily Pooja at the distputed site.
Mars Dasha : (1955 to 1962) : Mars was badly placed in lagna and being a 3rd and 8th lord it was instrumental of worsening the situation as in 1961 Sunni Central Wokf Borad also jumped into the litigation. Situation was under control as this Mars had aspect of Jupiter
Rahu Dasha : ( 1962 to 1980 ) There was no solution of the problem at all.
Jupiter Dasha : ( 1980 to 1996) This has been a happening period as this Jupiter made the BJP a household name.With the sympathy wave of Ram Mandir BJP reached to it's zenith and eventually acquired power at centre in 1998. In 1984 there was the first meeting of Dharmasansad. On
What is stored in future ? : Jupiter has done a lot for Ram Janmabhoomi and all that can not be changed, hence it is sure the temporary structure which is stood there is quite safe. But the full structure is still far off atleast for two more years to come, and till then Ayodhya and the whole country yet to face few bad moments. According to Kurma-Chakra Ayodhya comes under Purva-Phalguni nakshatra and whenever this nakshatra comes under severe vedha of Saturn,Mars or Rahu unrest clashes and chaos would have have to happen. In the months of January-February when Saturn will be transiting through Krittika and Mars will be transiting through Vishakha, Ayodhya will be in the news again.

In the early hours when Aquarius ascendant was rising at
Aquarius rising is not a good omen for Iraq as it is the 8th house from Iraq’s ascendant which happens to be the Cancer.The attacker Bush and Company is represented by Saturn the Ascendant as well as 12th lord, whereas Saddam is represented by Sun the 7th lord.Interestingly both these planets are well placed in the chart. Saturn by his position in the kendra in the friendly sign with his friend Rahu, while Sun is aspected by Jupiter and placed in jupiterian sign too.Thanks to Jupiter Saddam is receiving so much support worldwide.
War is going to end within two to four weeks, as Sun is placed next to Ascendant and Saturn in the 4th house, and both are strong. For the outcome of war 7th,11th and 14th April are important dates. Saturn’s transit into Gemini on 7th is most crucial one as he will aspect both Sun and Mars from there.US and allied forces may catch hold of Saddam before 11th of April.But with his Luck and the famous double he may survive as on 11th April he may leave his country and may get political asylum in a friendly country.Why after 11th ? Because Mars is going out into Capricorn in the 12th house, being exalted and aspected by an exalted Jupiter He will be safe wherever he may be. The remaining work will be completed by Sun moving into Aries and the safety of Saddam will be asertained.The only question is to survive between 7th and 11th of April.The one thing is sure Bush and Company may destroy Iraq but can not destroy the spirit and soul of a brave soldier.
Let’s have a look into
Let’s have a look over US horoscope as well.Right now US is passing through the sub-period of Jupiter in the major period of Moon.Moon and Jupiter both are well placed to each other making one successful in one’s ventures.This phase ends in June and the sub-period of Saturn starts thereafter.Both Moon and Saturn are badly placed from each other.They are making Shadashtaka relationship.This phase is devoid of happiness and indicating lots of internal as well as external fights and dangers.US may drag itself into a big warlike situation which may get out of control.
May God give wisdom to Bush and Saddam and save
