Fraud Internet and Tv Astrologers

New breed of Internet and TV Astrologers 

When a person asks me what i do and i tell them that i am an Astrologer, they say no no what u do. Ppl don’t take Astrology as profession seriously. I have thought seriously about this why they think that astrology cant be a profession. I just found one answer to this that it is because non serious and non professional people have entered this field, what i mean is ppl who have very little knowledge of even basics of Astrology have started showing up at TV Channels and Internet Sites and Social Media Sites like Facebook and promoting themselves as Astrologer. In this article we will try to focus how you can know whether the person sitting on a TV program or Facebook even know basics of Astrology or not. After all its your future who u are asking him and his answer may make u wrong decisions if he don’t know his art correctly.

I have been learning  and experimenting with Astrology for last 22 years and have learnt all major Schools of Astrology from East and West and know so many internationally reputed good Astrologers from both sides everyday learn something new from them but still feel to learn more and more as there are so new many things to discover every day.

You may wonder who is promoting such foolish type of Astrology when u see everyday a new Internet astrologer or TV Astrologer who even don’t know the basics of either Western Astrology or Jyotish and represents himself all over the Internet or TV shows as a Master Astrologer to make fool of ppl. As i am myself an Journalist i know that TV Channels or Newspaper don’t care who is writing column or doing a program until their ratings is getting high and they are getting high rated advertisements. So in a view Media Industry is also to be blamed in this promotion of false image of Astrology.

There are so many categories of these people some only ask ur date of birth and instantly start answering ur questions answers. Others only ask ur name and ur mother name and start predicting ur future, some more are who only take ur date of birth and place of birth  and start predicting ur future. There are some who even don’t bother to make any horoscope either and give direct answers, one person who used to do a program on our TV where i used to work and advised ppl about their Lucky Gem Stones  and have a laptop in front of him and use to show off that he was making some calculations but in actual he was always staring at the blank screen this was told to me by ppl working in the recording studious. All these people are not real Astrologers and they even don’t know the basics of Astrology as no real astrologer will ever answer ur questions with the Time of ur Birth.

Then there is one more category which is very popular among our masses these days known as Peer Sahab or Baba ji. These Quacks have some Shudra type of Mantra Powers which have some powers attached to it and these powers read the mind of the client and tell the baba ji now baba ji predict all thier past accurately even the names of their father, mother, wife, even how many brothers, sisters he/she have. What job or Business he/she do and these make frauds in many types. In India they make fraud at the name of Nadi Astrology and in Pakistan on the name of spiritualism and Astrology. its a long story will some day write more on it also. Now these so called baba jis have also entered the TV shows and many of them like them to be called Astrologers.

I can name hundred of such ppl whom i have seen becoming Astrologers when they couldn’t survive in their Jobs or Bushinesses. Similarly i know so many other ppl who are in reality good Palmists but have become Astrologers as astrology is more popular these days than any other spiritual science.

I have seen so many cases from India that many Youngsters who came on some astrology groups or Facebook asking for  some answer for them or some of their relatives within a year time they become professional Astrologers.

We should all condemn this type of astrology and try to know some info and credibility of knowledge of these persons  before asking them important questions of our life. As one false prediction from their mouth can ruin ur life and i have so many practical experiences of it.

Finally concluding my musings on this subject i must clarify that i am not against these youngsters or their activities but i just want to advice these new young Internet Astrologers who practice Jyotish or Western Astrology to pls  read Classical Jyotish books, Western Astrology books and  other recently published books by some experienced Astrologers to understand things in clear way instead of posing that i know it all behavior and then try to understand properly the basics of Jyotish and Western Astrology under the guidance of some learned experienced Jyotishi and Astrologer thru making lot of practical charts and only then they should start giving predictions to other people. As this will not only bring good name and fame and of course wealth also to them but also give some credibility to this ancient science which is getting more defame because of their wrong predictions.

I may here add that a good Astrologer should have knowledge of both systems of Astrology that is Western Astrology and Jyotish as both compliment each other and add a lot of new knowledge for the Astrologer. Astrologer prime Job is to guide his Clients properly thru whatever matter he wants to discuss. Its my humble experience that only those Astrologers who have deep Knowledge from Both Schools are really v good Astrologers.

Dear readers pls give ur comments as only ur comments will tell me what u want to read and what u don’t like on this site.

First House in Astrology

              Astrology First House Key words 

 I have expanded on this article from many more sources and will be adding up more info in it as times permits. So it is not not complete yet but much more has to be added to it.

 According to Western Astrology following are the keywords for the first house…..

The 1st house affects the appearance and the personality, as it is perceived by the outside world. The rising sign is the degree and sign that marks the cusp of the 1st house and coincides with the first independent breath we take. This is why exact birth time is so critical in casting a natal chart; the chart’s very structure depends on the time and location of birth.

These are the keywords for first house.

The First House is about identity and how other’s see you. This house also rules the personality, attitude, how you see the world, how you look, appearances, your worldly outlook, and self-awareness and how you respond. It describes how you see yourself and how others see you. It can also describe your physical appearance. Other keywords include: the self, ego, anima, projected image, expression of inner motivation, soul purpose, initial approach to life, the aura.Identity,habits, physical characteristics that others see first.

The self , personality, the body, appearance, ego, attitudes, physical health and vitality, self-regard, and what inspires you.The body, vitality, health, and energy, Very early childhood, Outer personality, Survival Mode.

The first house also tells how we begin things, particularly how we present ourselves. With Leo on the cusp, we present ourselves in a grand manner. With Virgo, we do so in a detailed and critical manner, in the service of others. With Aquarius, we do so in an indifferent and intellectual manner.

In Medical Astrology

In Medical Astrology, by association of the natural order of the signs, the first house governs the head, brain, eyes, face, muscles, pineal gland. The Ascendant in medical astrology is indicative of the general health and constitution.Upper lip, and upper jaw, cerebrum (brain).

Following are the significations of first house in horary astrology.

Health, honor, qualities, nature, conduct, age, state, caste, purity, happiness, misery, expression, form, color, wife of nephew – all these are to be judged from the first house.

Houses in Jyotish from BPHS

Houses or Bhavas Chapter from BPHS

I have taken following info from Houses the translation of Brihat Parashar Hora of Maharishi Parashar translated to English by R Santhanam.

This book according to majority Indian Astrologers is the most important book on the Jyotish. As majority of the Jyotish books were written following the Parashari School of Thought.

It is thought to be written 3000 to 2500 years before. So its a primary source on Jyotish. So we have taken the chapter from this book which deals with the Significations of different houses in Jyotish according to most authoritative Jyotishis of Past.

Hope this knowledge will be helpful to some beginners student to understand the ocean of Jyotish.

What is Astrology Part 1

What is Astrology

Astrology, the Science of the Stars

Astrology literally means “the Science of the Stars”, from the Greek astrologia: astron (constellation; star) and logia (study of; ordering principle; utterance). It contains both the idea of an organised body of knowledge of the cosmos, along with the way the stars “speak” to us, or give meaning to our lives [see Is Astrology Scientific]. A person who practices astrology is called an astrologer. A very ancient, but still vital discipline, from the most earlier civilisations we see that ppl believed that the planets, stars and other celestial phenomena like Eclipses and comets have an influence on our lives.

Astrology and astronomy have in modern times become separate studies, though for most of human history they were two sides of the same coin. We see that great astronomers like Tycho Brahae, Johanes Kepler and Geleleo also used Astrology for predicting influential ppl lives and also for weather predictions. For details you can read my articles on all three of them. Beside them we see a long line of Muslim scholars who were both Astrologer and Astronomer. I be writing about them in details in future.

Exploring ourselves, our relationships and our place within the world, astrology has found that the symbolic relationships between the heavenly bodies are significant, and can be seen as a map to human destiny. This is also expressed in the hermetic maxim: As Above, So Below.

Astrology can give us insight into all manner of situations, from the personal to the political and from the most intimate to the most mundane. Because astrologers generally take a holistic view of the world, we can see that there is a spiritual connection between all things, even the planets, stars and us.

To find the actual cosmic influences on events, character, and relationships, an astrologer first draw up a chart, or horoscope based on your Time of Birth, Date of birth and Place of birth.

He uses this horoscope filled with symbols of signs and planets position on the earth, this symbolic map of the heavens is like a snapshot of the cosmic influences at work on that specific place at that particular moment in time. These influences will be expressed in whatever person or event is being born right there and then. The astrologer’s job is to interpret the meaning of the symbols in the chart and to place these influences in an appropriate context, with relation to its subject based on the observations of thousands of years by many generations of astrologers all over the world.

Pisces in Love

If you are in love with a Pisces man or woman,give him or her attention and sympathy. You have met here an individual who will quietly listen to the tales of your days — good and bad ? and desires only the same consideration in return.

Gentle and caring, he (she) provides a safe haven in any kind of weather and can be counted upon to get you back on track. Make sure that you do the same. Little gifts are greatly appreciated here and they need not be expensive.

The idea of the token of your affection keeps this individual smiling and returning the favor with surprises of his (her) own. hugs or other displays of tenderness are also essential for true happiness with this mate.

You may need to make a conscientious effort to keep him or her talking about his (her) feelings.Though deeply emotional inside, this particular sign — more than others– is prone to suffer in silence rather than speak out about personal irritations or letdowns. Disaster lurks down that road as unexpressed emotions carry a punch far greater than expressed ones.

Make sure that the lines of communication stay open and you can avoid this pitfall.Don’t be alarmed when this honey desires to spend time alone; it is essential for his (her) mental health. Pisces doesn’t have as strong an aura as many of the other signs do and needs to re-charge the batteries without anyone else around from time to time. Kindness also pays off in this match. Often polite, he (she) generally is not fond of harsh words or rude phrases. You have found here a person who prizes serenity above all else and one who will appreciate your efforts to keep the waters calm. Once acquired, this bond will be long-lived.

Aquarius in Love

Are You In Love with an Aquarius? (Jan 20 – Feb 17)

If you are in love with an Aquarius, give him or her a very long leash and your respect. This is one of the most freedom-oriented of all the signs and this individual will not tolerate nagging or any cramping of his (her) style. You must understand that here you have found a person who truly looks at the world from a different perspective and needs to be supported in this endeavor. Bright and original, this partner sees the world as it will be or should be and feels somewhat personally responsible to bring the future about.

Some Aquarians feel so strongly about this that they are almost revolutionary in thought and behavior.Aquarius, as a rule,is also much more comfortable in the realm of thought than that of emotion. This person actually has the ability to detach from his (her) body and view conversations and situations from above. You needn’t worry about judgment, though, as he (she) is extremely tolerant of everything except intolerance. Friends are important to this individual and you can expect a steady streameither through your house or his (her)business. You have found here, too, a partner that truly seeks an equal relationship.

He or she wants to stand on his (her) own and wants you to do the same. This is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and if you look at the number 11, it represents masculine and feminine –separate — but also side-by-side and equal. As we are currently proceeding into the great “Age of Aquarius,” this is good news for us all. Flexibility is also a must with this mate as he(she) enjoys last minute and/or unexpected surprises.” Boring” will not be a word you use to describe this relationship as he (she) keeps you wondering what’s going to happen next. If you are looking for a partner with whom to have a fair and interesting match, you have found it here.
