Yes,  I am truly late in continuing this series, I am sorry about that as I was so busy in the past few months. Now its Monday morning, I have many pending consultations, and office work as well, but I was so motivated to write about 1st lord in 1st house in Krittika nakshatra .


For an Aries asc/lagna, Mars is the 1st lord. The sign of Aries has 2.5 nakshatras, that is Ashwini, Bharani and Krittika. When your 1st lord is in Aries, and when the lord is in Krittika then Krittika will be in the 4th Padha. Every nakshatra has 4 padhas, and Krittika will be in the 1st padha.

Krittika 26-40′ Aries to 10-00′ Taurus

Each sign is 30 degrees long and when your asc/lagna lord is Mars and it is in the Aries, in the nakshatra of Krittika, then it will be somewhere between 26:40 degrees to 30 degrees. After that the sign Taurus begins. Ya, it is very intriguing, if you are a newbie, then 100% you are going to struggle to understand this.   Practice makes a man perfect, so keep on trying.


So, lets see what this nakshatra .


Your asc/lagna is the indicator of your personality, determination, physique, looks, health, vitality, mental disposition, ambitions and appearance.


Krittika is ruled by Sun, So, when your lagna lord is in Krittika, you will naturally have a tendency to not to mingle with others. Sun is the ultimate form of Purity and truthfulness, your affinity for purity and truthfulness will depend upon where your Sun is placed, but you will expect others to be pure and truthful and you will never tolerate others being untruthful. Your Lagna lord is Mars and it is in the nakshatra of Sun. This is a double doze for your search for truth and purity. Mars any way is a ferocious planet, Sun is another strong planet, both are standing for turbulence in a higher mode. You are an ultimate truth seeker. You can’t compromise anything that truthfulness and all the properties nearing to truthfulness. You will be fine in taking risks in life like any other Aries, Bcz you guys are ruled by Mars.


What will happen when you become a truth seeker? I have always seen, very fewer people like to listen to the truth. People like to be lukewarm, neither hot or cold. No one wants any burden in their life. So, they always want to be the safer side. Truth seekers are always in the pursuit to bring up the truth. If you are a truth-seeker, you will be labelled as a problem maker. Well, it is very hard to maintain a balance between people and events in our life. Since your Lagna is Mars and Mars is in the nakshatra of Sun, you will be forced to be in the direct motion and you will fight with the people and surroundings in order to proclaim the value of truth and purity. You will be in danger w hen you yourself move away from the righteous path of life and this is a call from the universe to be righteous and truthful.

You should notice another fact that the ruling deity of this nakshatra is Agni. This is another bouncer for you, if you want to get lost in MohMaya. You are nowhere permitted to be in the corrupt situations as now you are controlled by total fire energy. The Sun, Mars and Agni AKA  Fire. You should understand your cosmic programming and that will make your life easy. Many people say Vedas are the 1st literature in the world, I strongly disagree, but still, Vedas has a lot of wisdom in it. Let see what Rigveda says about the Sun, Mars and Agni.


As astrology is a part of veda, it is  always good to quote from it.



You can see Rigveda commences by praising Agni.

Agni is called as the messenger of Gods. Without Agni, the entire process of Yagna is impossible. Agni purifies. According to these rishis, Agni reaches the God. Guys, please don’t think that these rishis are holy beings, we can see unethical and unrighteous rishis, throughout the Vedas. There is a general concept that whatever told is the all the ancient books are righteous. That is a wrong conclusion I believe. So, Agni is all about purification. Now its become the highest dharma for a person with Krittika nakshatra in Aries to follow the righteous life.

The Symbol of Kritika is Knife, which is used to cut……….so its total dissection

The Sun gets exalted in Aries and debilitated in Libra.



When Mars, lord of your Lagna is in Krittika, then where the lord of Krittika always matters. Sun in different houses will give different results.



Self, personality, attitude, health, vitality, ambition and perspective.




Money, material possessions, family, speech, and self-worth


Short travels, short courses, media, communication, technology, siblings, writing, and editing


Home, family, ancestors, parents and ancestral property


Romance, entertainment, fun, children, youth groups, creativity, self-promotion and speculative business.


Work, colleagues, health, debts, responsibilities and pets.


Spouse, marriage, personal and professional relations, agreements, contracts and open enemies


Sex, crisis, investments, finances, taxes, insurances, partnerships and loans


Foreign travels, foreign relations, higher studies, teaching, publishing, spirituality, and philosophy.


Career, social status, bosses, authority, and ambitions.


Friendships, collective projects, long-term associations, children, youth groups, hopes, wishes, and gains.



Hidden fears, emotions. Psyche, isolation, seclusion, long distance travels spirituality and charity.


So, look where your Sun is located. Your life will be very closely connected with those matters.


So, when your lagna lord is in Aries and in the 1st padha of Krittika, you will be an eternal truthseeker. You will try to bring out the truth in whatever you see. It can be a plus as well as minus point. Being an Aries Lagna. Which is ruled Mars, you will have that nature to fight for survival. Now you should understand, there are no such remedies in astrology, and astrology is to realise your strengths and weaknesses. All you can do is use your Krittika traits productively. Identify where to use and how to use your truth-seeking skills, by crosschecking your past. Past life is the best tool to understand our true potentials.

A casual blog for my Readers


Its 7:42 P M in India and I reached home 15 minutes back. After 3, months I am reaching home at this time. All the last 3 months I was so caught up with my office job. Some days I reached office at 7:30 a m and reached back home at 8:30 p m. Daily 70 kms up and down travel Kottayam-Kochi, Kochi-Kottayam. I finished my new project by 11th June week, then I fell ill. I had severe neck pain and got admitted in Wellcare hospital. It was so bad and I took one week to recover from that, but again I fell ill. Last Saturday night I went out with my husband and kids at 11 p m I had a cold water melon juice with 3 ice cubes in it….then started congestion. I went to the same doctor and he gave some medicine, which made me sleep at the office.



I got few consultation queries, but I did not accept it. I just wanted to be free. I watch “Average Andy” series, few SuperWoman videos, then I was just going through online shopping sites. Next month I will be in the new project and life is going to be busy again.
I booked my tickets for astrology classes on Oct 26. Any one wishes to take 2 weeks long classes in Institute of astrology Bharatiya Vidyabhavan NewDelhi, then you can contact me. My number is 9539205092. There are batches for beginners are experts. I was attending classes for experts, but this time I will attend beginner’s class. I want to be clearer in my basic astrology knowledge.
Please check the link to know the subjects taught in 2016 program







I will be leaving on Oct 25th. I will reach by 10 am in Delhi and simply go out to Janpath or Connaught place. Then I will come back only by November 12th. The classes will start on Oct 26th and end by Nov 6th. On 7th, there will be a cultural event, but I may not attend that as I am going to Jaipur. I will be in Jaipur from 7 to 11. I have a detailed plan for my Jaipur trip. One day I will join Camel Safari to Pushkar desert and will spend 1 or 2 nights in Desert. Then I will come back to Delhi on November 11th. Next day, on 12th I will come back to Kerala. Delhi-Jaipur flight tickets were so cheap, I got it for 1500rs may be I booked it 3 months back.




I haven’t got a travel companion in Jaipur, so, I am little concerned travelling alone to Pushkar, but I hope, my hostel guys will arrange a group and send me with them.



My camera is broken and I must but a new one. I have issues with my eyes, so I can’t use a touch phone, so Camera is the best option for me.



My hair grew below my shoulders and I am planning to cut it and style it on Oct 22. My colleague Pooja got a good hairstyling done from a salon, so I am thinking that I will get it done there only. Then…….I have to buy a hoodie, 3 short dress, and a new trolley too.





I am obviously happy that I am going to meet my friends. I learn a lot from these guys. We have enlightening sessions on various aspects of astrology. They all are very knowledgeable guys. It’s a privilege to be with a spiritual group. Yes, some of them, they enjoy drinks and go to the bar, even I also have gone to bar, but I don’t drink. This year also I hope to go to a Bar with them and see how the crowd behaves. It’s a fun to be in a bar.




In 2015, I took them to Kerala house. One evening we went there and had Kappa and fish curry. They loved it, I am planning to take them this year as well.




Guys, the only thing I am irritated, is when I share someone that I had gone for a trip and stayed away from my family for some days, then sooo many people advise me ” You should have gone with your family” WHAT THE EFF. I really don’t understand why a married woman should always flock with husband kids or relatives. They see it as a sin to travel alone or be away from family…….I never understand why the hell people are so collectively conscious about a woman being a solo traveller.





First of all, me and my husband don’t like to   encroach into each other’s privacy. He has his own karma and its fruits and I have my own. Our only aim together is to bring up our kids in a healthy family atmosphere and so far we have done well. I dunno what will happen in the future. My husband is a jovial and wanderlust person. He likes parties and clubbing and I don’t like parties or mingling with ordinary people. He has 2000 plus friends in FB and very active in whats app and I don’t use both. He is a foodie and enjoys cooking, but I am satisfied with rice porridge and pickle 24*7. I know Bible, Quran, and Vedas, but my husband doesn’t have much idea about all these other than Bible. My husband’s dream is to enjoy the worldly life and my desire to reach moksha. I don’t mind taking up Sanyas for the sake of that, but his desire is to rock and roll. He is an ace guitarist, and like metal, rock and pop, where I love classical music and temple arts. We are not travelling companions, for him what excites him is Goa, Thailand, Singapore and Europe. What my soul yearn is to be in Egypt, Peru, Yuttican, Nepal or Srilanka. He likes only branded objects, but I like street shopping.





Why people are so bothered me going alone. There are people who told me “ At least you should have taken your kids with you” Guys, my kids will never say that their mother is a witch or a bitch. So far I have done justice to the role as mom. What you mean is I should take them for long journeys where I go to meditate. Do you guys go to the solitude and meditate at least for 10 minutes daily? Do you guys work in a domain where you need visions to do the best in your job? All writers need insights, he/she gets that energy from loneliness, it inspires us, and being with people, that creative energy is lost especially when you are a writer from the spiritual domain. I totally get irritated when people intrude into my private life and give all those nonsense inputs about my dressing, my friendships, my lifestyle, Guys pls grow up………we are not the same. I have stopped talking to so many people for this and rebuked many for asking me where am I going, why am I wearing pink and yellow combination, why I eat lunch at 4 p m, why my hair looks very oily today? Don’t you guys have anything other than this? Guys, there are so many things in the world to discuss, you pls try to debate on plastic and bring out a solution, Please discuss global warming and help the government to solve it, or go for a charity program. I literally hate people asking me”Why”.





I think these guys feel that in the solo travel, I may get hooked up with a handsome hunk and spend some romantic moments there. Can be or cannot be. I don’t guarantee anything. No one can block what is written in fate for you as well as for me.  Karmik relationships will come to you and you will have to pay off that debt.  So chill. (Well, my husband reads all my blogs hehe). If that’s not the case, then tell me what’s your fear in me going alone? So, next time please don’t cry when I say, I am going for a solo trip. It’s fun, you should also try to go for such reinventing journeys. I have been travelling alone since 2011…….I haven’t met with any hunks or I don’t even remember any guys who were emitting some signal towards me. This year when I went for Sanskrit classes in Bangalore, I stayed in a mixed dormitory. One Biker was there from Jammu. But he was a gentleman. We both were alone in the night at least for 2 days, but he comes to the room at 1 am and wakes up at next day noon. I was little concerned though, but he was a gem of a person. One doctor was with me in Spice jet flight during one trip from Delhi. The weather was bad and the flight was falling into turbulence area again and again, once the turbulence was severe and he got terrified and held my hands. We can’t blame him, for that right?





My Venus dasa started guy, but I am in love with my Ketu dasa. I realised who am I during my Ketu dasa. People say Ketu screws you up, but yes, it did the same with me, but more and more blessing during Ketu. Guys, you know the first dasa time period belongs to the Dasa lord. When you enter a new dasa, the sub dasa is also ruled by the dasa lord and that will be a tough time period. It’s like a jetlag. You just ended one dasa and entering another dasa. You are moving to a different energy zone, so technically 2 different energies are acting on you. For me, I am detaching myself from the influence of Ketu and getting into the zone of Venus. So, there will be adjustment issues. Well, being an Aries Lagna, Venus rules my Killer houses which are the most inauspicious houses for an Aries lagna. For an Aries Lagna, Venus dasa is fatal if Venus is not placed well. My Venus is not badly placed, so I hope God will bless me.




I am truly under the transaction zone between Ketu and Venus, my health is bad and not worst. I get joint pains, so much of workload. Certain times unhappy and irritated too. This month also my mom asked me to get out from the house. I rejected queries for consultation as I wanted to be peaceful. I got angry and shouted at a woman on the bus, but that was not my fault. My daughter started attending College, she joined for English Literature. I am trying to prepare her for civil services, so that pressure is also there. This Venus-Venus dasa will be hard on me, I am sure, but somehow I have to manage. These days I am getting sound sleep which I was lacking earlier.



Venus is love, money, luxury, and comfort in astrology, so the assumption is that during Venus dasa , our life will be full of Venusian factors. So according to the general assumption, my life for the next 20 years, as Venus dasa is for 20 years, I will rock. No. It is going to bring more pains for me, it can be in the form of health issues, relationships, money shortage, hard work, physical effort, lack of peace, and so many other factors.




Now I am going through this Dasa Sandhi, and I am very thoughtful for various reasons. It’s time for me to depend more on the lord and wait at his doorstep for his blessings. So far his grace was helping, now I have to be more alert as my killer houses are going to be in high activation.





















So, see you guys……….

The History of Astrology: Jamie’s Insights

The History of Astrology

Astrology is a subject that has generated a whole lot of controversies in recent times. While some group of persons see it as a healthy science others regard it as a complete waste of time. There is really little you can do when you consider such sentiments because everyone is entitled to their opinion.


Astrology is a science that has existed for a very long time, much longer than you can imagine. Digging a little deeper, the history of astrology has been an area of interest to those who happen to be supporters of the subject. Describing the origin of astrology will be the main focus of this post. This article will be equally shedding more light on the different types of astrology and how they relate with various cultures.


By the time you are done reading this post, you would have had a better understanding of what astrology is all about, what it is being used for as well as The History of Astrology. Just be religious enough to take note of every detail and you can get a better understanding of how astrology has come to be.

What is Astrology?

Before taking a dive into the history of astrology, it will be more rewarding if you understand what astrology is all about. Most persons mistake astrology for some other practice.  Astrology is a science that is carried out to help predict the future. Those who have specialized in this science are known as astrologers. It is believed that these astrologers make use of the stars, and other planetary bodies to predict the future of certain events.


You may probably be asking how this is even possible. Well, while you may have a right to your question, you must understand that there are people who see themselves as helpless without the help of these astrologers.


The history of Astrology

A good number of those in the community of astrologers in the world believe that this science originated from ancient Babylon. The Babylonians simply had a chart that helped them to predict the re-enactment of a particular event. After the Babylonians had mastered this practice for a while, they thought it wise to pass the knowledge onto the Greeks.


The Greeks actually learnt the Babylonian astrology in the 4th century B.C. The Greek faithful who devoted their time to this study were fellows like Aristotle, Plato, and some others. It was after this Greeks had understudied the practice from the Babylonians that astrology became a science. That is right, it was initially considered as an ordinary practice.


The Greeks mostly used it to bring some kind of calm whenever there was any chaos in the society. It was equally useful in predicting weather conditions as well as agricultural seasons. It was further used for the prediction of natural disasters. The prediction of war was not left out, as they used it predict wars between nations.  Other forms of astrology are believed to attributed to Greek influence.


Astrologers kept seeing themselves as more important because they used their knowledge of the future to advise individuals in leadership positions on what to do. Like it has been rightly stated above, there are persons who can hardly make any decisions without the help of these astrologers.


The topic of astrology will be incomplete without drilling down on Zodiac. The zodiac is a Greek word which means circle of animals. Astrologers believe it has originated and developed from the early Egypt. The Babylonians were the next to practice the zodiac. These set of astrologers were simply taking advantage of the lunar cycles (which is also known as months). They simply understood it was going to take twelve months for the sun to assume it initial position. They finally spotted 12 constellations that were linked with the seasons. They ended up assigning various names to these seasons.


The zodiac signs are basically divided into four major groups: fire signs, water signs, earth signs and air signs.



This is a map that represents various zodiac signs with the earth placed at the center. The horoscope simply represents different positions of the various planetary bodies at different times of the day. This is the reason astrologers do not make use of the normal clock, rather they make use of suns position to determine their time.


For astrologers to be effective in their quest they simply matched a desired date or location to a list of positions of the various planetary bodies like the moon, stars and sun in order to create a horoscope chart.


It is a good thing that technology has been very helpful in this regards, as astrologers no longer need to make use of their handwritten lists to be able to make a prediction. It has now been recently built into applications that work with databases. All these innovations really make the work of astrology much easier.


Is Astrology Real?

Having gone through all these illustrations, it will be natural for anyone with an inquisitive or curious mind to ask if the science of astrology is even possible. It is really okay for anyone to ask such a question because believing that astrology is true is one thing, and trying to understand how it works is entirely another thing.


The astrologers have been widely accepted into our society, and that is what matters at the moment. Trying to understand the intricacies behind the science for purely argumentative purposes will be a complete waste of time. Looking back at history, this science looks like something that is going to keep growing in leaps and bounds.


You may have stumbled upon this platform with little or no knowledge on the subject. However, because you have gone through this write up you must have known a thing or two about astrology. A thorough understanding of The History of Astrology and what it is used for can be a good ingredient in making you to know more about the subject. Taking advantage of this science is definitely going to be of great benefit to astrologers judging by the current events taking place in our today’s world.
