Re: Theory on debilitation and what actually causes Neechabhanga (A scientific view)

[quote=hari766 post_id=291383 time=1574668750 user_id=11140] In my experience, the problems caused by the debilitated planets never cease to exist in life - however the planet causing neechabhanga will ensure that the problem is almost always managed and mitigated. There will be periods when the pla...

Theory on debilitation and what actually causes Neechabhanga (A scientific view)

From my understanding of debilitated planets, they all tend to have a distinct aspect which hinders their performance. Debilitated planets have a filtering problem, and tend to over-engage on whatever criteria the planet in question revolves around. For example Mars in Cancer sees everything as an a...

Re: The good side of Rahu?

Another thing I'd like to note about Rahu, is that a lot of astrologers state that Rahu is kind of like this big explosion of success followed by a collapse. My experience with seeing how Rahu actually works is far more subtle than this. From what I've gathered, Rahu delays in early life because the...

Re: The good side of Rahu?

Rahu and Ketu are incredibly misunderstood. Rahu and Ketu represent the dualism inherent in reality. They both have their inherent strengths and weaknesses, as they approach reality from the opposite side of the spectrum. Often times with Rahu and Ketu, people will attempt to explain them with keywo...

Re: Ayanamsa

An example of the above scenario with Mars, is the New York Yankees baseball player Derek Jeter. According to Lahiri, his mars is placed in the Sagittarius portion of Cancer(Ashlesha). A correction was used to place his Mars in the Scorpio portion of Cancer in Pushya. For one chart this is statistic...

Re: Ayanamsa

I took a systematic approach to it. I took approximately 3000 charts of successful/famous/celebrities etc in a particular field. I grouped the fields success based on planet. For example for athletes one of the planets chosen was Mars. I then changed the ayanamsa to see if a correction was made to t...

Ayanamsa

I've been over several thousand charts, and I've came to a conclusion on Ayanamsa. The correct ayanamsa is somewhere between Chandra Hari and Fagan Bradley. I think there is a pretty substantial confusion that is created, because I think there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that dasas...

Re: Two exalted planets in navamasaa kudali aspecting each other,ie to enemy planets sun and saturn

One of the largest criticisms I have with Vedic astrologers(which I consider to be the most accurate form of astrology), is that the astrologers often make predictions based on the blanket term "aspects". There is a fundamental difference in interaction between planets that are conjunct v.s. 7th fro...

Exaltation v.s. Planets in their own house / How it relates to Neechabhanga

I've began to view planets in their own houses and planets in their exaltation houses much differently. Most consider exalted planets to be of higher strength, though I'm not exactly sure I completely agree with that. I understand the whole inclination towards that viewpoint, but I think there is a ...

Re: Is Rahu really exalted in Taurus?

The nodes do better when the dispositors do well. That being said, within dual signs the nodes find more balance. Dual signs have an internal awareness of the other. There is a certain balance inherent in dual signs therefore when the nodes are there they find a sort of balance as well. Balance does...

Re: Nodes Exhcange Via Nakshatras - Spectacular Effects

I have Mercury and Jupiter(with Sun) with Rahu(10th house).... and Ketu(with moon). To say that time feels as if it is breaking down would be an understatement. Life kind of feels like this non stop occurrence of deja vu.

I have spent quite a bit of time philosophizing about the nature of Rahu and Ketu, and something has always bugged me about the way that astrologers as a whole represent Rahu and Ketu. Rahu on one hand is considered the node of desire and on the other Ketu is considered the node of detachment (which...

Well here is the thing that many people in astrology ignore, and it's that all the things are a product of each other.

Jupiter, the secret Malefic
