Are you Manglik?

A person is said to be a manglik if Mars is posited in his or her horoscope in 12th, 1st, 4th, 7th or 8th house. Some learned include placement of Mars in 2nd house also in the above scheme. This placement of Mars is sometimes seen from Moon and karaka for marriage Venus also. Navamsha chart is also subjected to a similar analysis. A manglik person who has the above placement of Mars in his or her horoscope may not always carry the ill effects of such a placement called “mangal dosha” It is believed that mangal dosha affects the married life with delays or obstacles in getting married. Even after marriage it is believed that mangal dosha brings mental anguish, financial problems, disputes or even divorce. In certain cases of extreme affliction it may even lead to death of one or both the partners. These drastic significations of mangal dosha may not affect everyone because the mere placement of Mars in specific houses cannot and will not lead to these agonizing results. The whole picture emerges only after a careful correlation of the birth dashas and the planetary combinations present in the horoscope. Several combinations can also cancel mangal dosha and hence every manglik will not have mangal dosha in his life. The best remedy to ensure that a manglik leads a happy and contended married life, consult an able astrologer. He would, with his wisdom, match the horoscopes of the boy and the girl carefully and suggest remedies, if required. Hence do not be afraid if you are a manglik. It may not harm you.
These rules, in brief are: You must have a strong urge to ask a question pertaining to the worry or anxiety at the moment when you ask the question. 1. You must ask one question, which should be clear and straightforward. 2. The question must not be repeated to the same or any other astrologer until and unless some development has already taken place after the earlier reading and a need for a fresh question has arisen. 3. You must ask a question giving full details of your birth data for the purpose of correlation of your birth chart dasha and influences. 4. Even if you do not have your birth data, astrology through its magical technique of prashna can still help you. Hence you can ask your question stating clearly therein that you do not have your birth data, if that is the case. 5. As the conduct and outcome of a prashna is based on divine blessings, be guided by the reading of an astrologer with faith and humility."

Role of lucky Stones & Gems

Every horoscope has certain positive and certain negative combinations. No one in this world has everything good occurring to him in his life. If one area of life gets strengthened in a horoscope another corresponding area gets weakened. Hence I call it an averaging balance. It is generally observed that if a person is very lucky, say for earning wealth, then some other area of his life like family relations, or children etc. gets weakened and he may not find any happiness in some corresponding area of life. An average horoscope, therefore, gives a balanced life leading to overall stability and happiness. To further strengthen the strong areas of life and moderate the weak areas so that their ill effects are controlled, various methods of propitiation of planets are recommended. They are called remedies for planets or “ upaya for graha shanti”. To ward off the evil influences of certain planetary combinations causing obstacles, various remedies or upayas are recommended which may include mantra, ratna, aushadhi, daan, snaan or upvaas. If we scan the old classics, we find that there is just no mention of gemstones for remedies. It is only in the last 500 to 600 years that the use of gemstones has become popular and taken over the other traditional form of remedies on account of simplicity of use. It would not be incorrect to pinpoint the reason for this recent use and importance of gemstones to the commercial angle of astrology. The use of gemstones in astrology for the purpose of remedies, therefore, lacks the classical sanctity. I have spoken about the balancing effect of planetary combinations. In the same way whenever a gemstone is worn to highlight or promote any area of life, it has its corresponding weakening effect on some other area as well. Hence any recommendation for gemstone must be done with a lot of care. My concern is always to first see that a gemstone should not give any negative effect in any way, direct or indirect, on any corresponding area of life. After this careful analysis only I would recommend a gemstone. Recommendation of a Gemstone for propitiation of any planet must be done only after a careful analysis of the horoscope. Some people, out of ignorance, keep on wearing or recommending certain gemstone for example a Pearl (moti) to control anger, a Topaz for promoting early marriage and so on. This kind of indiscriminate wearing of gemstones may cause harm depending upon the planetary combinations and therefore must be avoided. Gemstones must only be worn for the specified period after due consultation with an able astrologer and must also be removed as per his guidance. "
