Dear Mr. Sanjay Rath,

thank you for the chance of communicating with you  through this forum somehow. I already had a reading with one of your students ( I won't write here his name) who has been more than great and gave me amazing insights and told me unexepected things or things that already knew deeply in my heart. I'm in Venus-Ketu dasha and it's the final period of this dasha. However, since two years my life became flat,boring and my health started to completely fall down without any explanation (I've been visited by 10 doctors). But it was during this last two years that I found vedic astrology and I started to learn it by myself especially after the reading that I got. As you know, it is quite impossible to have all the answers in 1,30 h and this is why I beg you to shed light on some aspects of my chart. I found out that I have gandanta moon (found it by myself) in the 6th house: is it always distruptive especially during its dasha? I think I also have 4 planets in vargottama but I don't know if it is good or bad. Can you give me some other explanations?  I should stop now, I guess. I give you my data because the uploader doesn't allow me to upload the chart (don't know why: my name is Fabio Gallone, I was born on 15/07/1990 at 14:46 in Ceglie Messapico,Italy.


Thank you very very much

I give you my humble blessings

Om Sai Ram Fabio,

I am also an astrology enthusiast and it would be good to have some knowledge share , till the experts in the forum get time to respond.

If we use Pushya Paksha Ayanamsha (Preferences -> Related to calculations -> Calculation Options as recommended by author) , we see Chandra in Mesh Rashi , Ashwini nakshatra Pada 1 in yuvati bhava.

We see Surya Dasha has already started and Surya is very strong in Shabala score.

Maharishi Parashara considers Revati - Ashwini to be least problematic of the three Gandantas *

Moreover you are not running the dasha of Chandra , so less issues here.

Chanting Gayatri Mantra is a very powerful method of coming out of the difficulties that you mention.

You can refer these videos

You know the other aspects already like effect of Surya Dasha and so forth.

We could await forum experts to give their feedback

Thank you for your interest Sairam,

I really appreciated your answer and I gave a try to your suggestions about computation. My case is quite wierd because some softwares give me Moon in 7th others give me the same in 6th. Many things change according to those placements: in the first case, sun becomes Atmakaraka; in the second one, Moon turns out to be my Atmakaraka. As a consequence, the entire game changes also affecting the moon disposition in the Navamasa chart but it keeps being Vargottama. As I said before, I also have those four planets vargottama but I wouldn't take this as completely positive thing because I don't know the effects of a vargottama saturn or vargottama sun. The different position of the moon in the chart also affects to some extent the structure of the dasa. You said that surya dasa already starteded but, taking into account the moon in the 6th house, it will start at the end of July rather than now. I'm mostly concerned about my health because if I will be able to get it back thanks to god's mercy I can also start to work with more energy to the other issues. The point is that my health started to be very bad without any apparent reason causing me a deep loss of vital energy involving different parts of my body. Is it my own Ketu?? If I only knew what is happening it would be least I know something.

Om Sai Ram Fabio,

My name is Sadanand.

I am a devotee of Shirdi Sai Baba and Sri Satya Sai Baba, hence the pen name is Sairam 🙂

Shirdi Sai Baba is a Sadguru well known within India. Sri Satya Sai Baba is world famous.

I am a student of Vedas and thus seeing your health issue, I have recommended the chanting of Gayatri Mantra.

The Pundits now it very well that no mantra can match Gayatri Mantra in its power.

Surya governs Prana i.e. the life force and Gayatri Mantra helps replenish this , thus restoring vitality.

So you can try that and see your experience.

It should be chanted after batch , 108 times. But if you are hard pressed for time or have difficulty counting you can

chant for a fixed duration like say 15 minutes daily , ending it with Om Shanti Shanti Shantihi.

Now let us come to the Horoscope.

Firstly any statistically determinate system like the Zodiac where the orbital frequencies are fixed cannot show the use and abuse of free will of the current birth which would fructify in this birth itself.

e.g. if you touch fire your hand will burn immediately ; it wont wait till next birth.

So natal horoscopy is limited to that extent. It being fixed cannot reflect the dynamic use of free will.

In a situation like yours where Moon is on the edge of a sign it is your own experience which counts best.

What reflects you better ; moon in 6 th house or moon in 7 th (Take the 7 th aspect as well)

In astrology approximations are always in play because

a) The Geographical coordinate system itself is approximate

b) The Ayanamsa makes a difference. Starting from the Govt. approved lahiri to Raman and Pushya Paksha ; each ayanamsa will change the degrees.

c) Birth is the time of first breath (in my studies) as breath is a manifestation of Prana. Generally in recording birth time there is some approximation. (Unless the father carries his laptop which is synchronized with universal time and notes the precise time).

With all these approximations, your own experience works best.

Look at D 6 (I have used Pushya Paksha consistently. This comes up in Jhora)

D 6 has three planets in the 6 th house of diseases and The VMD Antardasha of planets from Mars to Rahu , all influence/are related to the 6 th house

Moreover your char dasha (as per KN Rao) is of 6 th house i.e. pisces.

There is no end to such analysis . there is a concept of sub lord in KP astrology and that may show up a different graha.

Ultimately each graha is associated with a body part. Look that up and you can find out which predominates.
