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.

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……….

Why I Quit OneIndia

  1. I can’t write Junk Astrology, which entertains people at the same time it misguide them too
  2. They donno the ABCD of astrology. They don’t even know about different astrology systems.
  3. What they know is Sun signs, which is not at all 1% of astrology. No column can be written on the basis of Sun signs. No learned astrologer will do that. They don’t even know what exactly meant by Sun sign
  4.  Whatever I write they say, their editors are from Mcmillan and they don’t understand the content.( What Justification is that?)
  5. None of my other publishers will say that my articles are complicated. I have already proven my skills and I have a big client base. Grammatical errors, yes it was there. We are writing from insights.
  6. Each and every time that lady says, they pay a HUGE amount for me. Guys, I have emailed them, I don’t need any money. The pay was not huge, even coolie workers get more than that in a month. Just got fed up by listening to that emotional atyachar
  7. None of them know what astrology is and asking me to write astrology like western Junk astrology sites write
  8. No control on words…….keep on talking whatever nonsense comes into her mouth. No respect
  9. I have very good relation with all my publishers and I am with them for so many years. I donno what the problem with this person.
  10. They say they have a daily horoscope before me that also was not working well. Most of the daily horoscopes  we read on various portals are software generated not written by an astrologer on daily basis. When portals get enough astrology contents, they reverse it by software to use on a daily basis. They can create software  generated monthly and weekly also if they get enough content
  11. The moment I start working with them, the quality of Marunadan, Truthstart and Prokerala articles started coming low. Still my columns are the leading columns , that is a truth
  12. My aim is to translate Rigveda and Gita for laymen, not to write monthly and astrology columns just to entertain readers
  13. They say less  views within one month. As you all know it will take atleast 6 months to get proper traffic
  14. I have no time as I travel 5 hrs daily
  15. An astrologer’s skill is tested through accuracy
  16. After I start working with them, I lost my happiness, my health got worse, I was admitted in  hospital for 2 hrs today
  17. Came out from hospital and the first thing I did was mailing that lady , that I am quiting. Then slept peacefully and happily
  18. No astrology professional should work with a layman, bcz they don’t have the divine gift to understand astrology
  19. I want to study more and grow as a mature astrologer so that I can help people to be happier in their life, not to sit and write junk astrology
  20. For me, existing assignments are giving me immense happiness and satisfaction
  21. Hereby I will continue translating Holy texts
  22. I am available for my clients, and above all, I am peaceful and happy now.
  23. I wrote this bcz my readers should not feel that I was incapable, as you all know who am I, than whoever knew me for the last 30 days………
  24. I consulted with my gurus, my Boss , my well wishers, my kids, my parents, and husband, they all asked me to quit
  25.  I am just here to serve the humanity and I have long way to go………Hope you guys are there with me……..
  26. Finally, as I have said before, I am not interested in any name, fame or money ………I look only at being back with my Lord……..lets see how many of those folks attain this……..The body dies,         the Soul continues its journey….

This is one article written for them and pls go through this. Please let me know what complication is there , blocking you from understanding this article. Tell me what else should come out from an astrologer with 17 years of experience. I cant tolerate nonsesne talks guys……..I am a straightforward Aries Lagna with good Jupiter and Mercury. I don’t like interacting with people who has damaged Mercury, Jupiter, and damaged Lagna. I know when a lie comes out from someone , but I avoid them afterwards. I know I have a truthful heart and I dont lie ………….You can trust me on that. I have informed them that  I dont need a single pie and I literally feel ashamed to take anything from them as that lady always say HUGE investment. It was just less than pea nuts you know.  These are emotional blackmailing techniques running in corporates. From now onwards I will never ever join hands with a female boss. and no more corporates too……..Astrology is not a corporate stuff. It is a divine super science and you need divine wisdom to understand that. If you lack divine wisdom is that my mistake? So , astrologers out there, think twice about such assignments

 The funniest( complaint )  question was”  there are a lot of repetition in monthly and weekly, you have written Sun is in Taurus for monthly and weekly , You have written Mercury moving to Gemini, Venus moving to Taurus   for all signs ………..LOL” . I was laughing over night…….That was reported by editors from McMillan LOLOLOLOLOL. Editor doesnt even know about Conspiracy theory and never heard of Hollow Moon theory……….and edits the astrology content

 

What is Your Passion? Find through Rahu’s Placement 

  

 Self-awareness will bring a lot of success to us at least in the personal life. When we realize who we are and what our strengths and weaknesses are, then there will be a natural inclination to increase our strengths and conquer our weaknesses. In astrology, there are so many techniques to know more about us. You can’t beat those techniques with any of the new-gen methods because it is tried and tested by a much evolved human race than us.

Finding passion from astrology is such a simple task. For the beginners in astrology, you have to look just at one planet Rahu. For experts you have to look Rahu, then the nakshthara and nakshathra lord’s placement.

Why is Rahu seen as the representation of passion in astrology? To know more about this symbolic representation, you have to have an idea about what the Vedas aka India’s ancient texts says about this shadow planet. In Rigveda, which is considered as one of the ancient texts in the world,

 

 

In   HYMN XL. Indra. Sūrya. Atri.

Here Sage Atri calls up Surya
5 O Sūrya, when the Asura’s descendant Svarbhanu, pierced thee through and through with darkness,
All creatures looked like one who is bewildered, who knoweth not the place where he is standing

The story goes like this, Devas and Asuras went for a common mission to get a magical medicine to get eternity. The leader of Asuras is   Svarbhanu. At some point of time, Devas and Asuras got into a verbal spat through that there come factions in the united alliance. When they got the magical medicine pot, Devas decided not to give it to Asuras and of course, it is not a good practice. Svarbhanu, who was determined to gain this medicine managed to escape with it, but half way he was cut into two pieces by Indra.  The head portion is Rahu and the abdominal portion is Ketu. Since the Sun and Moon informed Indra about the escapade, Rahu has intense enmity towards these luminaries.

 

 

 

 

Rahu is a symbolic representation of your fighting spirit, it signifies your passion, and it shows your unending spirit. It can even lead you to a success if you set a good plan on the base of the ideas you get from Rahu’s placement.

The step is very simple. As an astrology chart has 12 division, you should find in which division Rahu is placed. These divisions are called houses. Each house has different features.

 

  


Here is the key to unlocking the secrets about your passion according to the house placement.

If your Rahu is in the 9th house, then you should understand what 9th house means. This house is totally dedicated for long trips, international relations, higher knowledge, media, publishing, teaching, preaching, counseling, law, and spiritualist.  So, you should think what you like most in these areas. You can even become a travel agent.

1st
This house rules own efforts. So, anything which requires your own efforts should bring good luck to you. Like being in politics, or in a leadership role. Here Rahu gives you the insight to control masses. You will be able to convert your energy in controlling the masses psychologically.

2nd
This house signifies money, material possessions, family, speech, vision, and nourishment. Try your luck in nourishment business like a chef, or as a food court owner, cash dealer, or even as an orator as a singer. Try as a life coach as well.

3rd
This house is the house of courage. Rahu is a sure signal to have own business. It can be in writing, editing, media, social media, journalism, Television, any job which your verbal oral written communications are used.
4th

This house is assigned for mental and physical comforts. So, you can try your luck in anything which makes others comfortable like a doctor, nurse, hospital business, interior decorator, real estate dealer, agriculturist, organic farmer and the list is big.

5th
This house deals with creative self –expression, speculative business as children. Think whether at any point of time you thought about creative projects own business or doing something for children including being a pediatrician

6th
This house is all about dealing with enemies and inimical situations. Your mind is in financial dealing, problem-solving and you will even like being into medicine industry

7th

This is the house of your opposite parties. This Rahu also shows that you have a natural knack to deal with masses. So, you will be able to impress them like a deal maker. You should invest your energy in an area where you guide others, or rule others.

8th
This house is totally dedicated for mysticism, occult, tax, insurance, and marine related interests. You should think whether you like the role of a sea surfer or a life saver at the beach. You can even think about mysticism related roles.

10th

Your passion is to get noticed by others. You like being the center of attraction. You should try being in a role where other notices you like politics, movies or in a role where you use your power to impress others.
11th

This house is all about networking and own business. You like to be a part of a group always. You will try to be in group settings. Your passion is to do a creative venture within the groups.

12th
This house deals with hidden talents. Or those talents which make you work in the background scenes like editor, in a role you stay in the background and control the entire show, mystic, occult and healing

According to ancient texts, Rahu shows why we are on the earth at this time. It shows what we have desired in our past birth and we have to achieve in the present birth.

It is not fair to speak about the mystery concepts like past and present birth because we have people from different faith who trust and don’t trust in these concepts. At the same time when you look at the placement of Rahu, you can see that your mind is always revolving around the features of that house.
Nowadays science and technology have grown so much, that we can even start an own venture with zero investment. We can start a blog for showing up our skills in a related area, if your writing skill is poor then you can try a vlog, and there are so many ways to make your living now. Where there is a will there is a way

As a practicing astrologer for so many years, I have noticed that you have to have a deep desire for those things signified by the house where Rahu is placed. Then you search for an entry, the universe will bring the opportunities, events, and incidents in your life where you can have a fresh start.

For those who has Rahu in the 1st, 6th and 10th house, you should not hesitate to promote yourself through your physical presence or appearance in the virtual world. If you are planning your online venture, then don’t hesitate to show the world who you are. No matter how you look, or you should not think that the general population may not like your looks.

 

 

 


For those people who feels their career has not picked up even after so many attempts, they should start looking Rahu, and the house which is placed in a very serious mode.  

 

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.

 

Horoscopes

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.

My name is Jamie Slack.  I am a professional Western Astrologer.  I am based in the United Kingdom.

I first studied the foundations of astrology when I was 16 years old.  Throughout the years I have advanced my knowledge, especially in the areas of natalsynastry and predictive astrology. What was first a hobby then become an obsession, spending many hours doing astrological readings for people from all walks of life.  Astrology is a fascinating subject, I created a blog called JKS Astrology to share my knowledge and passion for it.  I also dedicate many hours to astrology research to improve my techniques further.
