Complexity of Jaimini Sutra

The most difficult of the classics in Vedic Astrology is the Upadesha Sutra of Maharsi Jaimini. Needless to say there are many scholars who have studied this when they reach that level where they have a fairly good mastery over the standard texts and have digested Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra to a decent level of competence. A competence that allows their minds to move through the sutra like thread in a needle stitching the various sutras into a fine cosmic diagram.

Eclipse hits Astrologers, Doctors etc

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Eclipse

The Solar Eclipse of 20 Mar, 2015 is going to be an important turning point for the world of jyotiṣa. It is going to hit many astrologers, doctors, healers of all types and jailers as well, thereby disturbing the sign Pisces which governs these people. In addition its lord Jupiter indicates scholars, scientists and educators.

The conjunction of Mars and Ketu with this eclipse is particularly dangerous for all these people who have Mars as their ruling planet (ascendant lord) or have Mars or Ketu in the ascendant.
