Astrology and Huge Success (Bhavarambh)

Astrology & Huge Success: Bhavarambh
(One needs to look at the planets that are in the same degree as the lagna-degree and Chandra-degree to map this discussion to their own horoscope.) If not the exact degree – plus or minus 3 degrees is also quite effective.)

Following observations are based on case-studies of highly successful people. The question that is always raised & will be raised about astrology is why the day Sachin Tendulkar or Gary Kasparov or Kapil or Richards or Pele were born – 1000 others born on that day didn’t have similar successful like these folks? This article tries to get down to the basic of why a specific planet is more effective for a chart than others.

For wild success in ONE field or one topic is usually very strongly placed planet in that chart. The meaning for strongly placed could be
(1)     Uchcha,
(2)     In swa-rashi, in swa-navamansh,
(3)     Uchcha and swa-navamansh,
(4)     Uchcha and swa-nakshatra,
(5)     Drushti of Guru on the planet,
(6)     Effective house for that planet (Digbali, Sthanbali etc
(7)     Not astangat
(8)     Not in Shani drushti.
(9)     Owner of the sign of this planet is not in Shani drushti! :)
(10)  Is either owner of the 1st house or
(11)  Is Rashi Swami and
(12)  is not 8 12 from lagnesh or rashi-swami (in-sync)
(13)  In navamansh chart it is not with Shani or in Drushti on Shani – It is in sync with lagna & or Chandra or D9 chart.
(14)  Birth-Date or the total addition of the birthdate adds to the number shown by this planet.

This above is all great and needed But the BIGGEST differentiator and the key for WILD success and that too thru this specific Planet X becoming the only focus of a life:

The degree of the planet in very close or the same as Lagna-degree and or Chandra-degree!!

The above aspect makes the planet the most imp aspect of your life. With the same degree as lagna or Chandra, the planets drives the destiny & desire of the person single-handedly! It brings the FOCUS on the things shown by this planet. It dominates most of your decisions and the actions.

Of course, this works the other way also regardless of how good or bad a planet is placed in a chart.  So the planets not placed not so strongly & in the 8th or the 12th house in the same degree as Lagna or Chandra would show an acute obligation that the person needs to pay back in this life. These planets will keep pulling that person towards this obligation time & again. 

Planets placed not so great and not so bad in the same degrees would show a middle-class life but with efforts and deliberate FOCUS the person will eventually get to the success they want.

Yes, people born on Sachin’s b-date do have good sports & running ability, they do have good supportive siblings and they do have good land and eventually they have made it quite big in life in their own right but the “Bhavarambh” of Ati-uchcha Mangal is important and maybe they didn’t have Mangal close to their lagna or Chandra degree and hence multiple planets took their focus in their life! :)
  
P.S. Bhavarambh is a bit more complex as every Bhaava/house is calculated and is not thought to be the same degree that of ascendant BUT the case studies DO show that lagna-degree and Chandra-degree and planets degree play a HUGE role instead of calculating EACH bhav/house of the horoscope & where exactly it starts.  (KP method places HUGE importance on Bhavarambh - -cusps.. rather it is one of the major aspects of the KP method.)

My example: (NOT a wild success yet) :) please don’t take it as arrogance! :)
(1)     My lagna in 22:XX degrees
(2)     Sun in the 27/28 degree in the 5th house (Forecasting, Preaching, Teaching, Go-Getter, All-rounder etc)
(3)     Chandra in the 27th degree the first house (Imagination, 6th sense memory in Vrishchik)
(4)     Raahu in the 27th degree in the first house (occult especially in Vrishchik!)
(5)     Neptune with Chandra Rahu in the first house but 15th degree in Vrishchik away from Chandra Rahu
(6)     Lagna Chandra Rahu and Surya – all in the nakshatra-Swami of Budh. Budh itself in the 5th house of forecasting
(7)     The Sun in the 5th house which is in Vargottam Navamash of Meen rashi has defined me completely in this life.
(8)     The 5th house is applied science and Meen rashi is spiritual in a way. So Vargottam Navamansh in Meen) but the 5th house is “applied” science.

(9)     The fact that the owner of Surya Sign – GURU & Co-owner Neptune – Neptune is with Moon itself in the first house (imaginative, 6th sense etc). GURU is in Vargottam Navamansh in Kumbh (modern, intellectual approach, using latest tech etc).

As Neptune is NOT very close to Moon and in Anuradha nakshatra and not in the same degree as Surya Chandra Rahu - -I might not get into completely intuition or psychic kind of stuff – (Chandra Rahu close first do point to that). Also Surya in 27/28 degree and Lagan in 22:XX degrees so not doing this right from childhood. It started HUGELY from 2006 in the Surya Mahadasha. It was of course always there from the 90s but you can see how these degrees play such a massive importance. Chandra mahadasha is ongoing now and later Mangal. Raahu mahadasha from 2029 onward (if survive the Mangal Mahadasha form 2022 to 2029!!!) would make presence probably worldwide. The health aspect of this chart is gone for a toss (kidney, mouth, teeth etc etc) but with “Saai-Kripa” might get past 2029.. let us see! :) :)

I take pride that my Mangal degree in Gemini is the same as Dennis Lillee and Prakash Padukone. Padukone had Mangal in the 3rd house whereas Lillee might also have 3 or 5th house. I have it in the 8th house and also completely OFF from the Lagna and Chandra degree - - mangal - -sports career not MEANT to be!  :) Ability - -well that will always be untested now – but of the best in the circle I played with! :)

Some other non-astrology thoughts:
Today, A new joke I heard: yoga is beyond religion. It IS a Hindu religion product and it IS a Hindu thing. If you do not like this FACT -- please do not do yoga. This is British buddhibhed and divide and rule and making Hindus feel apologetic for being Hindus!! Yoga IS Hindu and will be Hindu always.. if you have problem with it --- please don't do it!!!!! Else tell me which prophet taught yoga to his disciples.
And Hindus: STOP doing buddhibhed & stop being victims of buddhibhed as Vedik, Bhrahman, Bahujan, Kshatriya, Mulniwasi and what not -- every one who worships IDOLS is a Hindu... regardless of who came up with a word Hindu Sindhu or Bindu.. I doNOT care..!! People who do not worship idols regardless if what religion they are -- they are "A-Hindu"...!
Tomorrow - -after some years Westerners will prove Mantras are very useful to cure conscious and subconcious mind and also the DNA and hence remediation of various things much before they happen and then MANTRAS will also become shamelessly non-Hindus!!!!

Birth Dates of 5 14 23 ruled by Budh / Mercury


BUDH / MERCURY Effect : The birth-dates of 5 14 23
BUDH/ Mercury Effects: 5, 14, 23 borns have this habit or even destiny: When they earn some money say 5 Rs - They have an impact in surroundings or part of a deal where someone earns 100Rs or there is a turnover of 100Rs! i.e. They have this ability to connect supply & demand and create a win-win situation for both the parties and earn some valid income in the process. Real estate agents/shar market trading (& "players") hence are usually with 5, 14, 23 b-dates along with good Mars presence. Depending on their intellectual level they display such events. Balasaheb Thackeray when saw some good paintings from Mr. Paranjape -- He called up Taj folks and asked them to evaluate the for their lobby - They evaluated and were happy that they got such great deal -- Mr. Paranjape was happy that he probably got 10 times more than he would have otherwise!! This is magic of birth-date of 23...!!!! Of course, Balasaheb, Kanya rashi also that adds to 23's effect!!!! Similarly, Aamir Khan, when does this program on TV -- He charges 3 crores or whatever per episode -- but in the process, he might have affected 3000 Crores of India public's money positively. It is a win win situation for him, the channel, the janata who watches it. On the small scale -- people buy cars & sell for higher money etc -- on a large scale like Balasaheb or even Aamir -- people affect 1000s of crores in the process earning their rightful %!!! Of course, Balasaheb couldn't care less about his % ---- Not all are like him!! So just to summarize the birth-dates of 5 14 23 are about trading, negotiations, articulation, supply-demand gaps and creating a win-win situation for both the parties. They have this sense of humor and quick wit too. Drawing cartoons or at least getting such ideas by some observations. BUDH in a natal chart / horoscope is about nervous system, brain composition, mama, mousi maternal cousins etc folks. People with problems with these obviously as you can see can’t be traders! :) A well placed Budh in a horoscope will show good control over these things for sure. At least the relationships with mama mousi and maternal cousins can’t be bitter if not great! The world is inter-tangled and interconnected! It is all karma. Shar market trading gains are usually someone’s loss - -it is not creating value. Or large investors putting money in the market from abroad etc and then traders earning some % on these deals by Share Market trading. This is still a Win Win and not outright karmic obligation as someone is not losing this money! But still trading at its own karma and as long as it is fair like connecting DOTS and two parties and having some fair % out of it, it is all good.

9.       Steve Jobbs was struggling until last mid-decade!

Simple answer is that their Shani is strong! :) This article is to elaborate this as to why we think their Shani sis strong? So that we can also imbibe these qualities and be always successful regardless of planetary formations?

Answer to these questions point you to Shani or simply “acute understanding of most of the customers”. When you think, talk, walk, dress, party or simply “live like your customer”. Conscious and Subconscious awareness of your customers is THE Key for success. You are creating products for customers or services for consumption by “someone”. That someone needs to be understood by you and everyone working for or with you. The end customer using these products or services – studies on these people. So the lesson here from the highest level of examples need to be taken at lower level to our personal life and horoscope. You have got to understand what your immediate customer (your boss) wants from you and what you customer’s folks for you. This is essential but even these people will be FORCED to respect you or fearfully respect you if you start understanding their end-customer. For example someone working in IT  (Capgemini, Infy, Cogni etc) studies their end customers (it could be internal business people or it could be actual USA citizens using the products). How they use the application, mobile app or the website and what their average day looks like – what they do morning 6 to 9 and 9 to 12 and so on. Even this attempt would make one powerful enough to be respected by the fellow employees but the topmost bosses in your company and even the customer side IT people who are always worried about the business people. This ONE act will make you find REMEDY for your own SHANI! :)

So this article mostly deals with professional life and career. SHANI for career is about customers and end customer and all sorts of customers you have. Thinking like them, acting like them, understanding them, living like them will give you insights which would make your offering so well that it will become part of their life and not just a product they use!

So look at above examples – let us try to answer them to the best of our understanding:
1.       Why Parle-G works so much in India? Why Britania Bourbon sells tons more than ITC Sunfeast biscuits?
a.       Indian people always eat biscuit with tea / coffee – iT MUST soak up the team fast enough but not so fast that they lose it to the bottom of the sea, oops the tea-cup! :) :) This is the SINGLEMOST reason I HATED ITC biscuits and always got Britannia and also ParleG.
2.       Why Swift or any inferior Maruti Suzuki works a lot more than Fiat’s’ best vehicle at the same price? (Linnea)
a.       “Kitana Deti hain” – Compromise Safety with lesser weight of the car for “average” (fuel economy)
b.       Compromise Tire size and breaking and grips for fuel economy
c.        Give convenience like Bluetooth touchscreen to the lowest level model – Rs 7000 phone gives it!!!
3.       Why Toyota NEVER has a flop vehicle? Why Qualis such an age-old vehicle still commands great resale price?
a.       Decent space, power, economy and AMAZING reliability and ground clearance! :)
4.       Why Subhas Ghai had such a long successful career for 2 decades where he could stop shooting of a movie with Bachchan (Deva) such was his clout & understanding?
a.       He just understood the single screen movie-goers very well. He knew their sensibilities and was exactly cater to them with a poor hero (HERO Jackie Shroff) and putting news in the media which would appeal to this customer and NOT the elites.
b.       He started struggling when the customers changed to more sophisticated ones – thanks to then PM Narasimha Rao policies – people had new money and new life style..!
c.        He struggled in the multiplex ERA has his ego or self-esteem (which keeps increasing & ego gets converted to Self-esteem without our knowledge) didn’t allow him to STUDY these NEW consumers – their sensibilities were completely different and at much higher levels. (Aditya Chopra, Johar etc).
5.       Before starting work on new Luxury division (LEXUS) in USA Why Toyota sent a group of people to USA to stay in the USA and use Audi BMW and Benz for a month, play golf, go to grocery shopping, & so on? Why they launched a separate brand itself? Why they launched a V8 engine and Why ACURA (the Honda division) despite having head start of 6/7 years ahead of Lexus hasn’t had the level of success Toyota has with Lexus?       
a.       This study told then what these 3 offered and what they didn’t (service, reliability, cheaper services)
b.       V8 is a must else no credibility (Acura Legend respected but not at Benz BMW levels)
c.        RWD is a must else no credibility (Acura Legend respected but not at Benz BMW levels)
6.       Why brand-new Nano failed but Renault Qwid is a wild success?
a.       Nano was designed NOT FOR ANY CONSUMER!!! It was Active replacement – WOMEN were major target – Tata didn’t know this simple basic fact --- did not have auto did not have power steering – imagine women struggling with manual steering with that crude manual transmission – Indian women are already conscious about driving and you wanted to make them feel more bad about themselves...!!??
7.       Honda CBZ & Suzuki Fiero failed in India (150cc) but Bajaj Pulsar was a stunning continued success for 17 years now! –
a.       Average, Average Average
b.       Good tires, advanced tech, alloys and FASTER face of changes...!
c.        Higher Fuel economy with higher power and FASTER R&D changes which wasn’t just Honda way!
8.       Why despite Toyota’s such a great reputation – Toyota Etios and Liva are such a BAD failure?
a.       Who needed 4 Cylinder engine that gives lesser power of 3 cylinder and lesser economy of 4 cyl?
b.       Who needed a car with only ONE wiper!! 1 Horn and NO rubber bidding on doors
c.        Who asked for a design which looked lie 1980s Esteem when new fashioned SWIFT was launched 5 years before Etios!!
d.       Everything Toyota did with this car was EXACTLY what NOT the Indians wanted!!

As you can see these all point to SHANI!!! Understanding of consumers and their life! The FAT salaries of auto industry or advanced knowledge of engine tech or JAVA or Micro Services is of ZERO use if you ignore your customer needs!! So the REMEDY for each and every example above is the remedy for Shani. Shani needs ego-less, humble approach to agree first that you are there due to end customers who spend money and NOT only due to your knowledge. Your knowledge is a necessary stuff (Chandra Surya Budh Shukra Mangal Mangal etc etc) but it is only useful when SHANI is taken care of – else it is the BEST of the BEST products that nobody asked for…!!

This was at higher level the understanding of Shani. At PERSONAL LEVEL you can see below how Shani tries to get rid of most of your obligations by the age of 30:

At an individual level, your horoscope shows your obligations to some areas of your life – family, mom, kids, father, siblings, relatives maternal paternal etc etc. So you need to understand what these people want and that is the START of the Shani remedy! Working on what they want - -the actual Karma is the next step of the Remedy. And yes an astrologer can certainly give you analysis of where your obligations are and what karma you can do about it. Earlier you start in life, earlier you conquer the Shani mandate of your horoscope. Asking remedies to AVOID paying obligations is deferring the payment of your loan. You won’t get a CM to do a loan-waiver for you! :)

AS PERSONAL LEVELS:
SHANI: Saturn, Shanai, Shanai – slowly slowly, Sincere, Serious, Hard-Work, Perseverance, covert ambitions, Auditor, Police, Relentless delivery of good/bad karma, Channel for karma delivery just like ISO or CMMI Auditors or Financial Auditors, Poor People, Masses, Workers, Large group of Consumers, Cold Calculations, Devoid of emotions, numbers driven approach, practical experience

Shani In a Natal horoscope: Deficiency of Karma from the past birth, Things in error or omissions, your obligations you were not able to or purposely did not fulfil in the past birth, YOUR OWN subconscious agreement with the universe what you owe to this world.

By the age of 29.5/30 Shani has traveled all houses of your horoscope from your birth and it has gone past the position it is in at the time of birth. (Even by the age of 15 it has put drushti on each planet at least ONCE or more.) During this travel, the moving (transit) Shani aspects (puts drushti) on each and every planet including natal chart Shani – 4 times! Every time, it gives you an opportunity to pay back your past life and this life karma to the person, studying, to the entity, organization, relative, school, college, friends, colleagues, health, wealth and so on. If the chart is intense it FORCES the circumstances beyond control. These Shani movements by the age of 30 are a great opportunity to pay back most of your karma by good deeds sufferings or a combination of both. BUT we do have tendency find short-cuts and loopholes to avoid paying back the karma just the way we have tendency to jump stop-lights, signals, free parking and so on. So many times these opportunities are lost and hence the reminders and difficulties keep coming to you. Each KARMA-SANKET is important. When transit Shani has 3rd Drushti on any planet, it gives some karma-sanket and some advance NOTICE of the things that are going to happen after 5 years when transit SHANI will reach that house itself. If we TAKE this as an opportunity and pay ATTENTION to Karma-Sanket – a preventive maintenance avoids major parts replacement or a major breakdown! Think of Rs 10 saved 5 years back becoming say 17 in 5 years due to savings BUT you saved that 10 Rs by avoiding some karma and after 5 years you spend 17Rs for the same things which would have worked out in 10Rs earlier! :) :) and with lot less pain..!!! This is quite simple isn’t it?? At times, when Shani is on some house and planet – the force of pay back is so strong that the person cannot simply pay back physically the stuff. So when Shani moves ahead and after 7.5 years again it puts the 10th drushti on the same house and planet and tries to get it paid back – if yet again avoided - -After 5 years Shani’s 7th drushti is lot more troublesome.

So it is good to ask “remedy” to an astrologer and trying to find a loophole to avoid paying karma back but remember, the payments of karmic debt would keep coming back with you in much uglier state if avoided to pay! These remedies should be well directed, well focused and with GOOD INTENTIONS and NOT to run away from your own karma! Usually remedies should be seen as enhancers and also increasing ability to pay back karma instead of skipping it!

(Regardless of lagna (asc-sign)-rashi, Chandra(moon)-rashi, SHANI is for all an auditor who delivers the exact proportion of good or bad karma done. It reminds us of our dues and urges or at times forces them to pay back to appropriate party. The house/position of SHANI in a natal chart shows an obligation and deficiency in that chart for the things shown by that house. Also Shani has 3rd, 7th and 10th FULL drushti in addition to the house it is in. These drushtis DO work and they work a lot more when there is some planet in that house.)

Shani In a Natal horoscope: Deficiency of Karma from the past birth, Things in error or omissions, your obligations you were not able to or purposely did not fulfil in the past birth, YOUR OWN subconscious agreement with the universe what you owe to this world.

By the age of 29.5/30 Shani has traveled all houses of your horoscope from your birth and it has gone past the position it is in at the time of birth. (Even by the age of 15 it has put drushti on each planet at least ONCE or more.) During this travel, the moving (transit) Shani aspects (puts drushti) on each and every planet including natal chart Shani – 4 times! Every time, it gives you an opportunity to pay back your past life and this life karma to the person, studying, to the entity, organization, relative, school, college, friends, colleagues, health, wealth and so on. If the chart is intense it FORCES the circumstances beyond control. These Shani movements by the age of 30 are a great opportunity to pay back most of your karma by good deeds sufferings or a combination of both. BUT we do have tendency find short-cuts and loopholes to avoid paying back the karma just the way we have tendency to jump stop-lights, signals, free parking and so on. So many times these opportunities are lost and hence the reminders and difficulties keep coming to you. Each KARMA-SANKET is important. When transit Shani has 3rd Drushti on any planet, it gives some karma-sanket and some advance NOTICE of the things that are going to happen after 5 years when transit SHANI will reach that house itself. If we TAKE this as an opportunity and pay ATTENTION to Karma-Sanket – a preventive maintenance avoids major parts replacement or a major breakdown! Think of Rs 10 saved 5 years back becoming say 17 in 5 years due to savings BUT you saved that 10 Rs by avoiding some karma and after 5 years you spend 17Rs for the same things which would have worked out in 10Rs earlier! :) :) and with lot less pain..!!! This is quite simple isn’t it?? At times, when Shani is on some house and planet – the force of pay back is so strong that the person cannot simply pay back physically the stuff. So when Shani moves ahead and after 7.5 years again it puts the 10th drushti on the same house and planet and tries to get it paid back – if yet again avoided - -After 5 years Shani’s 7th drushti is lot more troublesome.

So it is good to ask “remedy” to an astrologer and trying to find a loophole to avoid paying karma back but remember, the payments of karmic debt would keep coming back with you in much uglier state if avoided to pay! These remedies should be well directed, well focused and with GOOD INTENTIONS and NOT to run away from your own karma! Usually remedies should be seen as enhancers and also increasing ability to pay back karma instead of skipping it!

(Regardless of lagna (asc-sign)-rashi, Chandra(moon)-rashi, SHANI is for all an auditor who delivers the exact proportion of good or bad karma done. It reminds us of our dues and urges or at times forces them to pay back to appropriate party. The house/position of SHANI in a natal chart shows an obligation and deficiency in that chart for the things shown by that house. Also Shani has 3rd, 7th and 10th FULL drushti in addition to the house it is in. These drushtis DO work and they work a lot more when there is some planet in that house.)
