    The blog post on conception mentions the auspicious Tithi, Nakshatra, Vaar, Yog and Karan for conception. Amongst the available combinations, it is recommended to choose a day with maximum favourable combinations.

    Just wanted to understand, the order of priority of these factors – Tithi, Nakshatr, Day, Yog and Karan. If the order of priority is known, one might be able to better select the most appropriate day where different levels of favourable/ unfavourable factors are present.

    Of course, without Gods grace nothing can happen and one can only try to do the best possible.

    Thank You

      Reading the post on conception along with several posts on eclipses, I understand that the effect of an eclipse can last several weeks and even months depending on duration of the eclipse. Since the post on conception specifically advised against trying during eclipse but no prohibition was mentioned for days/ weeks surrounding the eclipse, can one assume it would be safe? Thank you

        Thanks for that.

        I was looking for more clarification for those trying for a baby. I understand that one must not try on the day of an eclipse but given that eclipse could have negative effect before and after it occurs, should one altogether avoid the week/ month of an eclipse?



      • KG November 17, 2021 / 5:35 am

        Would it be possible for you to clarify impact of an eclipse on those trying for a baby?

        More specifically, reading various posts on eclipse and conception, one can gets questions about adverse impact on couples trying for a baby during the days surrounding an eclipse. If it can lead to some negative impact on baby, how many days/ weeks one must avoid trying? Or if such negative effects can be reduced by jaap, etc. For how long such practices must be continued?

        A clarification would be really useful.

    In the post

    You have mentioned the following

    “Saturns position in the Navamsha will give you his innermost potential and hidden results which will be more evident after you start your relationship with your loved one/ most significant partner.”

    What about cases were there is no marriage / one-one partnership ? Do we ignore the Navamsha potential, and focus only on Rasi ?

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    Although I read the post on VBT, it took me a while to actually go through the VBT PDF. And to my surprise I found out, that few techniques mentioned in the book are already something that I unconsciously/ subconsciously started practicing without realizing the significance, and without any formal initiation from a physical guru.

    The most important technique for me is verse 37. It out of the blue came to me around 3 years back. Haven’t been doing it regularly, but whenever I am ready or feel like it, almost on need basis. I automatically feel like it.

    And the staring at sky or blank white wall tratak is something I used to do normally since my childhood , again without any formal initiation or anything. I don’t feel the need for this nowadays, and am more drawn to the technique mentioned above, focussing on the Forehead Tilak and eventually leading to the Bindu ( Shikha ).

    I normally am not comfortable in being too explicitly religious, or outward show of religion or spiritual practices, I find some resistance within me in doing these. But I haven’t yet found any resistance from my conscience in doing this, and the period when this technique landed on me, was a pretty high pressure high tension period. I almost felt as if this was gifted to me to help combat the situation.

    My question , is this technique too harmful to pursue without initiation from a physical Guru?

    If you think I am wrong in talking about this on a public forum, you may choose to not approve this comment.

      a living physical human-looking Guru, ie someone who has realised the Advaita, ie is a Jivanmukt, is very very very rare.
      but everyone has the internal Guru tattva which pulls.

    Hello Tejaswini ji,

    For Graha Homam and other Homams if we use Mango wood and Havan Samagri (Homemade), wuth cow dung, can we still follow the procedure you have explained in your post? Or does the procedure become different with these items?

    Thanks in advance.


    • astrologerbydefault August 30, 2021 / 1:45 pm

      Hi there
      the different graha have different types of wood, metals etc to be put into the havan samagri. i think the samagri packets are available in the market as per requirement. if you want to do specific graha shanti puja in depth you can ask a genuine Brahmin to do it for you.

      Cow-dung cakes are applicable for all personal level homa. ie one cake is sufficient for the entire homa as you are putting ghee on it. you dont need to add wood to it.

      what i have outlined in that post, is the very basic steps, the bare minimum, which can be done,
      some of the Sanskrit part is reduced, assuming that the person has full faith, Shraddha and a powerful intention. the deities will come even on one Tulsi leaf or on one bilva patra, if the intention is strong and samarpan is complete.

    Hi Madam,

    Read the post on Bali. The gan / attendant of deities consume the energy released from the animal deaths in such bali’s. I have few queries about this.

    if the diety himself/herself dislikes the whole act of killing an innocent being, how come the gans dare go against the wish of the diety who they gollow and accept the killing?


    • astrologerbydefault August 31, 2021 / 12:16 pm

      Hi there
      we humans also know that the deity himself/ herself does not approve of the act, still some of us dare to do so, isn’t it?

        But the gans will be more spirituality realised that humaans isn’t it? So, they will be more aware of diety’s wishes and dislikes/likes.

        Diety can also stop the whole bali process by not givingt he desired results/ giving exactly opposite results to the people who do it as it has the power to override the gans.

        Also read somewhere that the animals getting sacrificed won’t have to be born in that species again snd will be given better species in next life so, it is in a way boon to them too.

        Though it didn’t seem very correct.


      • astrologerbydefault August 31, 2021 / 7:57 pm

        Hi there
        not necessarily, everyone has free will including the Gan
        and we are talking about the Gan of the Tamo-gun deities, Bhagwan Shankar and Devi Parvati,
        these Gan are not called Bhoot, Pret, Pishachyas, etc etc for nothing.

        its all the same to the deity, a deity is conscious awareness, the deity will not interfere in the free will of his devotees / gan etc.
        he will amplify and reflect back whatever is offered, you should know what to offer to whom.
        offer him the dying energies of an animal and this same energy will be magnified and reflected back to you. meanwhile his Gan will encourage you.

        so do you mean that when a human gets himself sacrificed he wont be born as a human again?
        no, it does not work like this.

        and here is something which you will never read in any books,
        there were devotees of Bhagwan Shankar/Parvati who were so expert in the tantra that they got themselves sacrificed willingly, they exited their bodies in a very typical way, and then they got immense siddhis etc (a very big deal this), but not Moksh.

        so if you want Moksh, you have to use the Ajapa mantras (or Om)
        all this rest, is all the game of Mahamaya, illusions
        why dwell on something that has no substance?

        another thing,
        there are a lot of people who deliberately kill animals in the most painful way possible as a ‘sacrifice’, its the energy of millions of dying animals released in a burst. who do you think absorbs this energy? and what is this energy doing?

        Thanks for information, so only the poor animals are the ones without any choice in this whole scenario, Unless of course they did the same thing as humans in the earlier lives and now are getting the fruit of their choice, by being born as animals.

        But then the same act of animal killing for food ( without any bali etc) will cause similar consequences? Because majority people are non vegetarian now a days.

        Also, read somewhere that shiv tandav stotra is written by ravan who did similar thing of self sacrifice, so the energies of that stotra are not “positive”?

        Sorry for naive queries


      • astrologerbydefault August 31, 2021 / 10:08 pm

        Hi there
        I think I have mentioned in several posts that non-veg food is tamasic.
        To eat or not is your own choice.

        If you have a bit of common sense, Ravan performed sacrifice of the β€˜SELF’.
        This stotra is loaded with the essence of pure self-realization. This Shiv tandav stotra is one of the most powerful and auspicious stotras ever. i have listened to this for days (day and night) on loops, recited on a loop for hours, used it in my pujas.
        Do the Pradosh puja with it and if you have the strength to channelise it you will see Bhagwan Shankar dancing the Tandav on the Nandi. The perfect Pradosh is coming up this Saturday.
        Forget pujas, reciting it requires control over Sanskrit and purity of pronunciation.

        Frankly am not surprised at this question as there also is a section of people who are born in Hindu families but are scared of the Gayatri mantra as they think the mantra is… β€˜cursed’. These people are the lowest on the rung of spiritual progress, nothing will happen to them for very many births.

        And to be able to comment on Ravan! He impressed Bhagwan Shankar with his recitation of the Saam-ved!
        Do not go by popular culture. Read the Ramayan.
        Ravan was born of a great lineage of Rishis, he was a Brahmin in the real sense of β€˜Brahma janati iti’.

        In fact every follower of Sanatan Dharma should read the Ramayan and the Mahabharat. Gita press has the original Sanskrit with translations in several languages. And the books are very reasonably priced. But no.. I think some people think that buying these books is also β€˜inauspicious’. One person was scared to keep a book of the Devi Mahatmya in the house.

        I wonder if stupidity is the main reason why so many people have stopped following Dharma.

    Could you provide more insight into the ugra energies? I have gone through the search/index and gathered that the energy from mantra/deities that are ugra are intense and can be scary. Are there differences in how ugra mantras or ugra deity worship give their results?

    I had heard from someone who was given a mantra ( i believe it might have been the nav-avarna) that they even months later feel very anxious as the energy is very intense. Is this typical?

    I understand this is not for everyone. I am a devotee of the devi and have been very drawn to the mahavidya but obviously have been too scared to try anything in fear of messing up.

    Thank you!


    • astrologerbydefault August 31, 2021 / 1:11 pm

      Hi there
      if you feel ‘scared’ then its fr a good reason, you are not prepared to sustain their energies.
      do not do mantra jaap of anything that makes you anxious.
      these energies are violent, they are Ugra, terrible, fast acting, unstoppable, ‘scary’ to those who are unprepared.
      they are not for everyone. no

      eg. with the current generation fed with lovely-dovey images of the deities…
      a dreamy Krishna playing the flute but if you ever see Krishna as he is even in a human form, jet black skin, gold ornaments, with the bow and arrow on it, his other hands holding even more weapons which mean business, looking at you very extreme dispassion! Sarvapraharanayudha.. i think not many will be sustain the shock.
      or those who are used to seeing a beautiful woman wearing a red sari, smiling etc if they see Devi Kali in her Dakshinkali form without preparation they might die with the shock on the spot, and if by chance she comes in her Smashankali form, its more likely that she will kill them herself,
      Even Durga, She who is very difficult to move, her name itself carries Ugra vibrations..
      the Dashamahavidyas are even more terrible, they are the raw energies of space itself.
      these ugra forms are very very strict. and repercussions for mistakes are very heavy
      i have seen people going insane.
      stick to the saumya forms, think of them as a loving mother/ father, if you do any mistakes they forgive and help you recover /learn.
      so best recite the Gayatri and some people even now mess up the pronunciation of the gayatri mantra too!
      but the regular Gayatri mantra is very forgiving, loving and gentle, so it helps you learn as you say it, if you have faith in it.
      not so with the Dasha-mahavidyas. do not attempt their mantras unless you are very very clear about the pronunciation, your intention and your ability to face what you are triggering.

      i cannot still understand how people can have a lovely dovey image of Shri Krishna, you read the incident where he kills Shishupal, in a full ceremonial setting, where he was being the prathem-pujya, ie he was being formally welcomed into the sabha, in front of all the Kings of Bharatvarsha, the Pandavs had invited everyone to their new capital city etc,
      but he did not waste even one min in killing him, his own cousin, as per the conditions he had decided on, 101 apradh done and at that instant he kills him,
      this is a Ugra energy.
      the entire Mahabharat is a song of the Ugra nature of Shri Krishna, he has pinpointed one enemy after the other and reduced them to dust,
      as a baby he destroyed the asurs sent by his uncle, as he grew up so many many many more and when it was time for his physical exit he orchestrated the complete slaughter of his own clan, sons, cousins, etc all.
      all this to finish those who followed Adharma.

        Thank you so much for this detailed response and providing these examples. Lots of food for thought. Its amazing to think how sophisticated sanatan dharma is. It is a shame that so much information has been lost over the centuries. Very grateful that you are sharing your knowledge with us.

        For Janmashtami there were so many pictures of Shri Krishna as a child being posted and circulated. I’m sure many (including myself) were not aware of this ugra nature. Would devotees not realize this if they began doing Shri Krishna sadhana if the energies are quick to show result? I have only ever seen the pictures of Shri Krishna as a child or playing the flute. It is interesting that the other points you note are often overlooked.

        Also, i hope this is not too forward of me to ask- but you have mentioned a few times in your posts of speaking to the deities or their appearances in real life. I understand that it must take lots of spiritual practice to get to that point and only those who have the karma to see/speak to the deities will. But how does one do this? Is the energy and intention to want to enough?


      • astrologerbydefault September 1, 2021 / 1:26 pm

        Hi there
        purpose is all-important. think on why did he take birth?
        it was to destroy Adharma.

        so if i have to meditate on the real essence of ‘Krishna’, seeing him as a baby dressed up beautifully is not going to be of much help. better would be to visualise him in his Vishvaroop,

        or if its going to be an intellectual exercise then better would be to analyse how he by all means possible fulfilled his purpose.
        even as a baby he killed so many asurs, from putana, trinavarta, aghasur bakasur, kesi, arishtasur, vyomasur, pralambasur, dhenukasur, etc. As a young boy he subdued Kaliya-naag, killed Chanur, killed Kamsa in a wrestling battle. As a man he did so many more things, including the destruction of all the Rathi Maharathi, Raja etc of Bharatvarsha for destroying Adharma. 18 Akshohini Sena killed, their families children all suffered. The land took 36yrs to get back to some level of normalcy.
        He used politics, economics, coercion, every possible tactic, using his brains, stupendous intellect, thorough knowledge of history, politics, every topic conceivable, and also the circumstance, eg killing of jarashandh by bhim, he knew the birth story of jarasandh and how it could be used against him,
        bending the rules with the conviction that Swadharma and purpose transcends all, eg bhim killing duryodhan, by breaking his thigh, which was against the rules of that one-one battle. ​even running away from the battlefield eg drawing kaalyavan to the cave where Muchkunda was sleeping, sometimes actually fighting, he fought the armies of Jarasandh repeatedly, becoming someone else’s charioteer rather than fighting which is the actual kshatriya dharma,
        Even accepting curses with grace, seeing his entire clan dying before his eyes, being very strict, dispassionate, eg he cut off half the shikha of his own brother-in-law which is a fate worse than death! Killed his cousin Shishupal in front of all the kings of Bharatvarsha.
        and so many things. He was the greatest politician ever.

        there is no mention of him dancing or romancing in the Mahabharat.
        in matters/stories/philosophy related to Shri Krishna, only and only Mahabharat is the only authentic text. nothing else.
        follow only the Mahabharat by Rishi Vyas as your only source on him.

        the entire Mahabharat is a story of his purpose.. Dharma sthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge…
        finally he revived Parikshit, he said that if in my entire life i have followed dharma then this foetus should revive, and it happened, The power of Dharma, truth, satya and the intensity.

        can u imagine this clarity of purpose? the only purpose = to establish Dharma
        we need to bring this purpose into ourselves and act decisively.
        that is the essence of ‘Krishna’.

        Seeing deities is natural.
        If you have done intense pujas/mantra etc of that deity, it will reveal its nature to you. If you want to see them and you take the necessary efforts then it will happen.
        Their human forms are one part, but their energies are definitely not β€˜human’ in any way. They are not human, never think of them to be. They are pure intelligence, different rays of that same Source.
        But ideal would be to focus on your mantra, think of your guru-tattva and keep doing your practice. Coz you should be focussed on the Ultimate, Moksh, ur own Self.
        Rest all is just a distraction.
        If you have read the description of Shuka-muni travelling to gain Moksh. he does not even glance at anything that comes his way. he is so focussed on the ultimate goal.

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    Sorry to bother you with mundane questions on charts. How do you generally correct the birth time?

    For example, you have mentioned in several of your posts that DCs including navamsha and the Dashas, are not much relevant if we dont have the exact time.

    Do we get 3-4 charts 1-2 min apart before and after the known birth time? And come up with the best fit among the 8-9 charts we would end up with?

      Hi there
      Techniques given in all standard books including BPHS
      Basically tally the events in life with the charts. Today generally everyone knows an approx time and the exact day. So rectifying it takes some effort but is possible.
      Or u can use palmistry.
      Or if its just one Q use prashna.

    • astrologerbydefault September 3, 2021 / 3:46 pm

      Hi there
      its a long procedure, so reducing it to the bare minimum may not be possible. main reason is the pran-prathishtha which is necessary, it is a technical thing.
      but there are several sites which give the entire process with the mantras which you can read and follow through.
      but a basic knowledge of sanskrit, or at least any Bharatiya language will be necessary, so that you can pronounce the mantra properly.
      i think that marathi is closest to sanskrit, more than any other language spoken these days. not saying that coz i am from maharashtra, i speak/understand several Indian languages, and the pronunciation and grammar structure of marathi is closest to sanskrit.
      not the marathi that you hear in bollywood movies, we dont speak like this in real life.

      point is that i am really grateful that the Parmeshwar has granted us this,
      14th sept, Guru will be going neech again and millions of people will be doing pujas for Ganapati especially with Devi Gauri on that day. a huge positive burst of energy.
      19th sept Rahu will be entering Krutika and again millions will be doing pujas of Ganapati and equally millions will be doing the pujas of the Anant, it is Anant Chaturdashi, this day is for doing pujas of Bhagwan Vishnu, the importance of this day is on par with Mahashivratri for Bhagwan Shankar
      hopefully this Shraddha and auspicious intentions of millions together will help us all navigate through whatever these two planets are thinking of putting us through in the near future.
      pujas done on the graha transit days are necessary to off set their negative effects.

      so even if you do not do a vidhivat Ganapati puja at your home at least recite the Ganapati Atharvasheersha and pray that we all remain safe.
      And doing the puja of the Anant is very very very elaborate so everyone should at least recite/listen to the Vishnu Sahastranaam on that day

    Namaste ma’am,

    I had written here earlier this summer asking about an intense whirlpool/vortex type pull around the crown of my head and lines from the kunjika stotram. You had reassured me at the time that this does happen and over time may ease or turn into something else. It has indeed eased over time- thank you for the reassurances at that time as I was quite anxious.

    I was hoping to ask for your advice again- I have now almost constantly an airy type feeling in my head ( almost like a hot air balloon). Its strongest when i first wake up but perhaps I just get used to it throughout the day and do not notice it as much? When i try to focus on my third eye area during mantras, I feel the air/energy going towards the back of my head. I am unable to focus on the third eye area because of this. Is this normal? And if yes, do have any insight into what may be expected after this so that I dont panic? I have read your articles noting how it is possible to like fry your nadis and don’t want this to happen.

    I dont have any spiritual teacher to consult or ask and so very much appreciate your time and you sharing your experiences and knowledge with us. πŸ™

      Hi there
      Consult ur doctor if there is any medical reason.

      I do not know what mantras u r doing.
      I always suggest the simplest soham and Gayatri combination as it is very gentle.
      in practice do not force anything. If u force it thrn u can damage the internal things.
      Do the simplest things.

        Are there possible planetary combinations in birth chart that could enhance nadi/pran movement for a spiritual aspirant… like for eg. a retrograde mercury in 8th house aspected by a retrograde mars (8th aspect)? And further enhanced by certain typical position of ketu in varshaphal/transit? Are these significant factors controlling pran movement in a body?

        Thank you jiπŸ™

    Asking you since I think you’d be able to help answer this – While thoughts can create situations, intuitive thoughts can also be indicative of future incidents. How does one differentiate between the two? As to if a thought triggered a certain situation or if a situation was supposed to happen and one was made aware of it through a particular thought?

    Thanks in advance!

        May I ask this same question but regarding dreams? How do we know which dreams are relevant/ a message/indicative of future events? I remember perhaps reading or hearing that dreams that occur during certain hours of the night are more prophetic but I am unclear on what the accurate timings are. Can you please confirm?

    Regarding this post on Bhav Chalit: please help correct understanding gaps:

    When Lagna is at the beginning of the sign and we work out a chalit chart- 2 signs rule that house.

    So for a Cancer lagna at 1 deg: Mercury will lord over 45% of the 1 st house and 55% will be Moon.

    Would Mercury still remain a malefic- does part ownership of the 1st house reduce its maleficence?

    And in such a case, would the gemstones recommended for Cancer Lagna be valid with moon also co-ruling a Maarak sthana?

You have done this perfectly for the 20 year Venus Dasha in the same article, but not for the 19 year Saturn Mahadasha. Would appreciate if you could do this.

    Your article about negligent/evil mothers really resonated with both my sister and I. We have the placements and have experienced exactly what you have noted in the article. The impacts are quite emotionally deep and it is difficult to unlearn and reverse the low self-worth image that has been drilled into our heads for many many years.

    In our culture, the concept of boundaries is very difficult for parents to grasp. Have you ever counseled any of your clients to cut ties with their parent? And if so, when is that the right option?

    I do quite a bit of spiritual practice. I feel that I can cut ties and be at peace, but at the same time do not want to create additional karma for myself. As far as dharma is concerned, is it ever ok to cut ties with a parent?


    • astrologerbydefault September 16, 2021 / 9:28 am

      Hi there
      Yes, i have advised a few clients to cut the emotional ties with their parents.
      In a few i saw tht after death of the more problematic parent they reconciled with the other non problematic one.
      If u r women and married then anyways u r not bound to the birth family after marriage.
      But obviously u cannot cut the practical ties. Eg if a parent is ill u have to attend.

      Simple rule fr karma is. If u r satisfied, ie ur Antaratma is, then u can do it.

    I have seen a video which explains how kolhapuri chappals are made and it was mentioned that skin of buffalo or cow is used. can we wear cows leather after cleansing as you mentioned

    Thank you


    • astrologerbydefault September 19, 2021 / 4:43 pm

      Hi there
      Leather is considered bad because of half-baked knowledge and zero understanding.
      We use leather of naturally dead animals.
      Most important use is the leather of a naturally dead deer as a part of the Asan. This skin is cured in a typical manner, ie salt and other chemicals are not used. Keeping a deer skin today is a punishable offence. Earlier Rishis would use leather of tigers as Asan. Bhagwan Shankar wears the leather of tiger. Leather has certain properties which cannot be replicated in any other material. It is vital.
      The problem with the leather available today is that is is from slaughtered animals. Cows are not slaughtered in our nation. But buffaloes are.
      In my personal life, I use shoes made of leather which a local shoe maker makes for me. The sole has to be leather and touch the foot and the ground. This helps ground the energies of the body. I β€˜clean’ out the leather, change its energy before using it.
      The greatest crime of the modern society is the invention of the PU soles, we are disconnected from the earth, unable to discharge our negative energy safely to the earth, we all suffer. People in the gruhast stage, householders should wear leather shoes, ie the sole should be leather. We are exposed to more negative energies, we do not generate enough positive energy so this is the best way to safeguard ourselves.

      Now for the Sadhak level aspirants. These people should never ever wear leather shoes. They should always wear wooden β€˜khadava’, never keep their bare feet on random grounds. These people are doing heavy duty sadhana. Their bodies are supercharged with positive energy, which they have gained after a lot of effort. This they cannot afford to lose to the earth.

    I have read all of your combustion and eclipse articles- they are extremely informative and contain information not available elsewhere- many thanks for sharing this knowledge. I did have follow up questions, forgive me if this has been addressed elsewhere:

    In india, there are so many preconceived notions about children born during solar eclipse. You have noted that those born with rahu +sun+ moon conjunctions often have significant occult abilities and may be further along as far as soul evolution goes. Is there a typical karmic reason for why this combination occurs in a chart (and hence the fear)? Additionally, are there remedies to help manage these energies?

    My apologies if this has already been addressed elsewhere. Rahu and Ketu fascinate me and I appreciate all of the information that you have already shared on this topic!

    Thank you!


    • astrologerbydefault September 22, 2021 / 10:47 am

      Hi there
      this information is not available anywhere else simply coz its my personal observation and experience with seeing charts.

      eclipse birth would be one of the most traumatic births for everyone concerned. ie the parents, the siblings, the close relatives of the person too, all will suffer in different ways
      think for yourself,
      sun or moon invisible! and rahu and ketu in full power.
      this will give a very highly unbalanced personality.
      even regular pregnant women are advised to take special care during this time, ie even doing housework is forbidden. imagine the trauma that a woman in delivery will have with these energies around her as she gives birth, and the trauma that the child will face as he takes his first breath, cut from umbilical cord in such vitiated energies.

      even kids born around eclipses are different as rahu ketu are in forward motion.
      for spiritual evolution, Sun, Moon Asc and rahu ketu have to be powerful. if just rahu ketu are powerful and the luminaries are weak, it will cause issues on physical, emotional, spiritual etc every level.

      there are remedies, main would be pujas for the ancestors, Naag etc.
      but for remedies first the condition the person suffering will have to be evaluated.

        Hi Mam,

        Thank you for explaining this. I am trying to learn astrology using sample charts I have from family members. Multiple charts have eclipse births. Perhaps this is why i didnt realize the different/typical personality as we are all surrounded by each other!

        I had assumed ( perhaps incorrectly) that the moon would be weak in these instances of the solar eclipse births as the moon is hidden, but it sounds like that may not always be the case? Can you please advise on my thinking process?

        For example, one chart has moon, sun, rahu, and a retrograde venus all conjunct in the 4th house capricorn. ketu alone in the 10th so there are no other aspects on these planets.

        – Venus is the ascendant lord and has the highest shad-bala at 557- i assumed this was only due to the retrograde motion? This is also at 0 degrees and vargottama in multiple divisional charts and in a friendly house so I assumed this to be an auspicious placement.

        -the moon is burnt by the sun as it is only 7 degrees away. It has the second highest shad-bala after venus ( 556) but the lowest ishta phala ( 6.92) and the highest kashta phala (47.56). It is also in capricorn ruled by the saturn placed in the 3rd house (12 houses away). I also assumed that with the 4th house placement and the Karako bhavo nashto theory taking place here, that this would be an inauspicious placement.

        I won’t go through all of them as I dont want to waste your time, but is the thinking process for these correct? Most of my family members’ sample charts have stelliums so it can get very confusing to interpret.

        Many thanks for your time!


      • astrologerbydefault September 24, 2021 / 10:20 pm

        Hi there
        Amavasya births are associated with typical issues, if you refer BPHS chapter on remedies, he talks about amavasya births.
        these people, even if grown up now, can get a some sort of puja done. so refer to your regular astrologer or Brahmin for this possibility.
        it is definitely considered “weak” as its Paksha bala is zero. its too close to the Sun.

        yes you are right,
        this Venus can give good results, esp if he is in charge of auspicious houses, as he is strong and vargottam both
        moon analysis too, its a potentially problematic position. low paksha bala, low ishta phala, in makar, personality is not pleasant,

        dont bother about stelliums right now, they are variations on graha yuddha and friendships
        later you will use the divisional charts to break up these grouped planets and analyse them indepth

        to begin with simply add keywords for planet, sign house and observe these people around you.
        trace patterns and then gradually into the finer details

    Hello Miss Patil,
    Your blog is simply amazing, wish I had encountered it years ago when I got interested in astrology! I was searching for information on ancestors and stumbled on your blog. I have so many questions, will ask in instalments; hope you won’t mind answering all of them.

    1. As you mentioned in your ‘About me’, many people online (on blogs and YouTube) just copy from people who really know the subject who talk with experience and these scamsters just mislead people, tell only what people want to hear like what self-help gurus do and disappoint them. I got scammed by some. What kind of karma do they accrue?

    2. An astrologer told me when you take care of someone that person’s planets will work in your favour. Is it really true? I have been taking care of my abusive mother and abusive elder brother for the last 16 years and I see no change in my life at all.

    3. If the eldest son refuses to perform Pitr tarpan, will rest of the males in the family continue to suffer in this life and next lives as well?

    4. Please write an article on willpower and how to increase someone’s willpower as I don’t see it in the Index.

    5. Also please share your experiences with elementals and spirits, it is always fascinating to learn about them especially about yakshinis and nagas etc. and the internet and YouTube are filled with copy cats who talk from zero experience.

    I’m still reading your fascinating articles; you clearly are a blessed soul who has a realised soul as her Guru.

    Thanks a lot, in advance!


    • astrologerbydefault September 22, 2021 / 4:31 pm

      Hi there
      1. their karma, leave it to them

      2. ask him, not me, fr clarification on what he told you.

      3. every male has to start performing the tarpan/ pindadana after one/ both parents go to Pitrulok.
      if a male does not do it, it is going to increase his karmic debt too.
      its not just the eldest son who has to it.

      4. So what is this ‘will-power’?
      the courage to take decisions as per your own Dharma.
      if you do not have the courage to act as per your Dharma this means that in astrological terms your sun moon asc lord is weak. a ‘weak personality’. do their remedies.
      at least do your basic daily pujas, ie still your mind, increase your personal energy and the ‘will power’.
      why do you think i emphasise on the Sun ie the Gayatri always?
      you will have to practice for yourself to see the results for yourself, you have to experience your own things.
      my blog, however fascinating it may be, is my experience,

      5. why?
      it is not necessary for people who have no interactions with them to know more about them.
      and if i write more on these things, you all will stop sleeping at night. this is scary for most people.
      plus reading about them will make you think about them, thinking about them will open doors for them.
      then you will be stuck with something unsavoury roaming around you.and without the power to make it leave.

        How can you say “reading about them will make you think about them, thinking about them will open doors for them”

        I in general love watching horror movies and reading about occult as such. You think there is any harm in that?


      • astrologerbydefault September 23, 2021 / 10:06 pm

        Hi there
        one should always gauge everything that one reads or sees against one’s own experience.
        this is necessary.

        as to the”how can i say it” part,
        its coz have experienced it several times.

        its nice that you are reading the comments,
        but do remember that my replies are in context of the questions asked and not a general thing like my posts.

        that comment was specifically for the question which was for the conscious beings like the Nag, Yaksha Kinnar Rakshas, Pishachya and other things i do not wish to name. as to take their name is to draw their attention..
        do not compare these beings with the inane things shown in “horror” movies..

        i think people in the west would call them ET or aliens, but they are very denizens of this same Earth but in different a time/ dimension.
        if you wish to see these type of beings, do visit the Himalay, esp on the no moon, full moon nights, and stay out in the hills at typical locations, if they wish they might show themselves to you. esp as they do not like humans disturbing their areas.
        another typical site is the cremation ghats in Kashi. esp in the evening twilight times, no moon days, midnights, there is no saying what you might chance upon there.

        reg horror movies, i find them over the top. the harsh noise and visuals are crude and leave distasteful vibrations.
        Psychological thrillers or movies which make me think are more interesting to my mind.. eg loved ‘predestination’

        but if you wish to watch go ahead.
        personally i feel that these movies and video games are a way for people to relatively safely complete their karma.
        eg earlier life was rough, people fought wars quite often, today no more real wars but the people born with those combinations still need to experience war, so immersive games are the option. and they also damage the players in different ways.
        or earlier a majority of humans lived near natural areas. eg several in my grandfather generation had run-ins with actual spirits, but today people who live in concrete do not have that option, so watch horror movies. and yes they do suffer its effects.

      any mistakes done unintentionally during pujas and other rituals, obviously you are going to do a final Kshama-prarthana. this gets covered in it

      but if you do something intentionally, eg kill an ant as its biting you,
      even then you can rebalance it by putting some sugar for them around that tree. be sincere about it

    I have just one question – is it possible to determine with certainty ones purpose/mission/goal in life? If yes, how?

    (Long story short I’m very disinterested in everything, not depressed or anything but I feel directionless, I am trying to find out what my life’s purpose or goal is, the meaninglessness of it all is doing my head in. When I was younger I was motivated by money, relationships and popularity but all of that has vanished, I don’t know what to do with myself!)

      the very fact that you are on this earth in a human body means that you have to perform your Dharma, at the very basic it is living a balanced life, taking care of your dependants, serving the society in whatever way possible etc.

      and on the subtle levels to experience the answer to “Kaa?” “who?” ie the existential question

      if you sincerely do some Surya related puja as a part of your daily routine it will help. feel grateful to the Sun, feel his energy around you. Genuine Gratitude is the first step

        I will work on developing gratitude and better practicing my dharma, I also chanced upon your article about the Gayatri Mantra and I must say I felt ashamed that despite having been initiated I haven’t been chanting it, I did when I was younger but eventually stopped and never even thought about it again until your article popped up while I was reading the piece you wrote about gratitude! I didn’t even know we were supposed to recite the mantra 3 times a day if we’d gotten the Janoi ceremony done!

        Earlier I read a reply by you to Simi about Lord Krishna’s ugra nature and I was absolutely blown away but I got the thought that it was through sheer luck that I came upon what you said and over time I’ve come to notice that your replies to questions are often as deep as the articles you write.

  25. Shelly September 24, 2021 / 11:14 pm

    Namaste Tejaswini ji,

    I had a couple of questions that I would appreciate your insight on:
    Could you please provide some clarity on how to evaluate planets are close together ( lets say within 10 degrees) but in different houses? For example planet A at 28 or 29 degrees in the 3rd house and planet B at 1 or 2 degrees in the 4th house. Would we still evaluate these as we would if the planets were conjunct and just assume its less intense? And how would this change if they were in the same nakshatra vs different nakshatras ( but still in different houses)? Would it be more like a normal conjunction if they were in the same nakshatra?

    And secondly (and altogether different topic):
    There are a number of mantras that women should not do jaap of during pregnancy. I’m assuming that this is for the same reason as not doing it during the menstrual cycles where the energy would be directed upwards during jaap instead of focused on the child? In that case, besides the beej mantras of the planets that you have outlined in one of your articles, are there any vedic devi mantras that can safely be recited during pregnancy? I am very sensitive to sanskrit mantras and even listening can cause the energy to start moving upwards. But if you have any recommendations for a gentle devi mantra safe for the mother and child during pregnancy would greatly appreciate!

      Hi there
      planets within 15deg influence each other to some extent, if they are in same nakshatra/sign then more powerfully and in different nakshatra/sign then weakly.
      the usual friendships, strength, ownerships etc have to be seen
      if you have specific Q alwys use the DC, it gives clearer picture of whats happening

      there are several reasons, and its diametrically different from what is happening in the menstrual cycle. one is completely constructive and the other is completely destructive. both are very delicate things, very sensitive.

      most important is that you are meddling with the baby’s energy body with these surges of pran. when you do these things the body gets ‘heated’, it causes ‘dryness’ in the body. if you do too much then it can lead to problems in pregnancy, dry the fluids in the body, even cause miscarriage, it will stop the milk flow, eg do gayatri 3 times a day and milk will stop in a week. i didn’t want to write these negative things but if you want to know then here you are.

      you have to do the sanskars during the pregnancy. most people do not do them anymore, these are the most important

      and i don’t recommend any additional mantra except the daily pujas which everyone does as a routine.
      generally every culture has its own things for pregnant women.
      the safest thing is to do darshan and puja of Bal-Krishna or Santaan Laxmi.

    Pranam Tejaswini Mam πŸ™πŸ»

    My day is incomplete without reading your insightful articles πŸ”₯ even your comments also so so sensible and thought provokingπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

    I’m here to share something kindly read when you free mam πŸ™πŸ»

    2020 lockdown gave me a chance to get insight into myself without outer world involvement much.. in that process I met several life coaches n took sincere coaching too.. one person addressed my issues very greatly and became my best best best buddy than just professional life coach.. almost 9 months continuesly she was with me and helped me alot to understand myself more.. but she left me by saying that I’m her failure case coz I don’t know what is self love and don’t know stability and some old patterns issues.. 😐 and we had great differences in astrology matter too..

    I felt so so bad and tried so so so so hard to change myself but I couldn’t really.. Felt like again I reached to where I started only.. πŸ˜‘

    I opened my chart and tried to find answers why this happened I couldn’t get much but astrology really soothes me..

    And one fine day I stumbled upon your devine blog.. that’s it.. all my unanswered questions and doubts just vanished.. you made me feel MOST LUCKIEST SOUL who chose toughest cancer ascendent path..πŸ”₯

    People call me OCD person as I really give more importance to cleanliness and can’t touch anyone and can’t eat food made by others and even can’t touch objects touched by others and can find people’s real intention by seeing their face.. and I don’t know why I always prefer to drink lemon soda only when I go out and why I immediately get instant energy..

    You gave answers to all questions and many more, those I can’t write here, through your amazing experience.. πŸ™πŸ»

    Now I know what is self love and I started earning respect from me for myself by doing what you said.. I’m not at all OCD person.. I’m just Sensitive to energy.. people now couldn’t hurt me much and many times I’m not investing my mental energy like earlier.. it’s all because of your splendid work πŸ™πŸ»

    How beautiful this astrology is! Just by clicking snapshot of birth time planets can understand a person this much is just incredible!! ✨ And most beautiful part is YOU and your blog !!✨✨

    After my life coach left me I thought like nothing/no-one can change me or help me.. 😐And may be I was wrong n my path was wrong And choosing astrology was wrong..

    ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨But you made me proud of my choice and path ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

    You are my life saviour..πŸ”₯ How can I repay you seriously ??
    Can I ??
    No actually..πŸ˜‘
    I can just wholeheartedly pray for you & your family well being daily..
    Forgive my helplessness.. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

    And I wish by the time my life coach will come and see me definitely I can suprise her with best Bestest version of myself because of your devine knowledge πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

    I read “make your very own amulet” article.. that’s fantastic πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
    I really realized why one should wear that.. and I had a doubt mam could you please guide me kindly πŸ™πŸ»

    After wearing that amulet should I remove that after monthly cycle every month and again will I make new amulet and wear it ??

    Thank you so much for your great presence here and reading this and guiding me.. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

      Hi there
      thank you, but best direct these feelings of gratitude to your source of faith

      one thing, if a teacher cannot teach a student, then its not the fault of the student, the teacher over-estimated himself.

      about the amulet, you can do as you wish, your have made it yourself its your own energy.
      you can make it using any mantra you choose, i have given the navavarna just as an example.
      Generally it does not matter if you wear it during the 5 days
      but as it is, i have seen that the life of these amulets is max 3 months or even less.

    Hi madam

    Do we have to put the curtain on the mirror at night? I mean for all mirror or where we sleep?

    You mentioned about mirror in one post but I had this query for normal household mirror.



    • astrologerbydefault September 28, 2021 / 12:28 pm

      Hi there
      bed in which you sleep should not be reflected in any mirror,
      cover such mirrors then
      simple reason, if you wake in the darkness and see yourself reflected in it, you might scare yourself.

    Pranam Tejaswini Ma’am.. πŸ™πŸ»

    I’m holding few doubts since long back.. kindly could you please send some light on it.. πŸ™πŸ»

    What is the use of creating humans/any creatures/this srushti to god ? Why God created all this ???πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

    what might be god’s main motive to create all this world ?? πŸ€”πŸ€”

    Every soul is part of god..It’s just that paramatma just divided into many forms by wearing different bodies as costumes right Mam ?
    Then if any one of these souls suffers means god is also actually Suffering right Mam ??πŸ€”

    Then why he created all this..? why god wants this suffering Actually ?? Because all are not at all happy on this earth at a time.. everyone in any way every second in somewhere somehow suffering..

    So God can’t be happy or peaceful until all his creation become calm and happy.. And practically it’s not possible as we know in every second number of people departing and new people arriving here..

    So there must be a secret behind this creation, if it is what it might be Mam ? πŸ€”

    As per my limited knowledge and research what I understood is, This kala-chakra is never ending loop.. No mercy to it As lord Shiv wears Kapala-mala (skull-garland) of All the Brahmas who created this srushti everytime at Yug starting.. (kindly forgive my ignorance if I’m wrong here) πŸ™πŸ»

    This means Satya yug, Treta yug, Dwapara yug and kali yug have been repeating since ages..
    Why this game of creation mam ? πŸ€”

    Kindly let me know Mam when you have free timeπŸ™πŸ™

    • astrologerbydefault October 1, 2021 / 8:21 pm

      Hi there
      We Hindus/ followers of Sanatan Dharma do not have a β€˜god’. We worship pure intelligence, we adore our own Self, ie the Advaita.
      You are the creator of your universe.
      I am the creator of mine. Why did i do this? I /self-ego wanted to play this Game. Like children play make-believe games, for happiness.

      There is no β€˜suffering’ in the world. Every jivatma chooses its birth time/space, ie it has the choice of experiences that it wants to undergo. even the karma that it has to endure, it has a choice in this matter too. Which ones to endure/enjoy in which birth. There is always some degree of free will in everything. Its like a task we have to complete, when we act to balance the karma we ourselves create. And we create karma when we try to find happiness in something other than the Self.
      If someone is deeply unhappy with the way his personal game is unfolding he can always try to get back to his Self. And everyone will do this at some point of time, whenever he himself chooses.

      I wrote on the Darshan shastra. The 6 different ways of perceiving the β€˜Self’. As our consciousness expands and simultaneously becomes more subtle we realise that there is essentially no difference, there is no duality.
      This apex understanding is the Vedanta which expounds on the Advaita.
      Only the very rare are able to perceive the underlying foundation of this creation, they are the Jivan mukt, those who have achieved Sadyo mukti and are the Satguru.

      The non-dual Advaita, the ’ocean’ of Consciousness, pure Intelligence, Awareness, just Is. It cannot be described in words of this creation, so it is always described in negations, Nirvishesh, Nirvikar, Niranjan, Advaita etc.
      Just like a small wave is created on the ocean, thus is a small wave of individual intelligence created. Why this happens is given in the Nasadiya Sukta in the Rg ved, if you can understand it.
      This wave is conscious intelligent, it is the same Advaita. But it develops a sense of duality, feels that it is different. This is the creation of the Mind, which then starts observing itself, creating its own universe. Plays its own Lila. When its exhausted by its own performance it simply stops. Just like a child stops playing with make-believe toys. I am sure you must have day-dreamed, imagining lovely faery castles and magical adventures in your mind. They were both real and unreal.

      From the point of view of the Advaita, Lila/creation never existed as the Advaita is always aware of Itself.

      Thus a spiritual aspirant is always asked to change his perspective. To try to perceive the underlying energy which animates everything. And this does happen and is very intense perspective. I cannot put this sense into words, no one can. Everyone is required to experience it for himself.

      Follow the Bhagvat Gita. He says that if you want to find the self, focus on the self and not on the Maya. Maya is variable, why chase after variation when you can instead focus on what IS.
      If you want to play some more then focus on the Maya and play your Lila, don’t bother with these questions on the Self.

      I have written several posts on the deities, creation etc. The Satva-Raja-Tama are the three Brahmadev, Vishnu, Shankar. They are also not the Advaita in these variable forms, merely rays from that Non-Dual. Beyond them is the Prakruti or the Mahamaya or the Devi Lalita, she is also a ray. beyond Her is the Purush, also a ray. Beyond all this is the Advaita, ie your own Self, the pure consciousness, the invariable.
      From the perspective of the Advaita, there is only the Advaita.

      I have written a lot from my experiences. You can use the index page to read these posts, if you want to. But remember that these are my experiences, you have to experience yours.

      eg. Math is my favourite subject. Solving problems in calculus, integration, differentiation, limits, logic and equations in college was ecstasy. Maths is so utterly beautiful. Even today, years later I solve math equations, draw complex geometry for my entertainment. Jyotish attracts me coz its basically Math and its patterns are geometry.
      Later when I read the Mandukya and its karika, I realised that the concept of β€˜nearest’ in this book is the same thing which was taught to me in college Math calculus, but in different words.
      Eg i will use Hisenberg’s theory to give you the simplest answer to your question, school level physics. He says that one cannot precisely measure both the momentum and the position of a particle together. This means that a particle can have a precise position or a precise momentum, never both together. Here β€˜position’ is the Self and Maya is the β€˜momentum’. If you want to precisely see the Self you have to ignore Maya. And if you want to play the Lila to the max, ie immerse in the Maya, you must ignore the Self.
      If you want to precisely see your non-dual Self you have to ignore the variation that Maya is.
      This is the Advaita in the language of physics.

      I don’t pin things on β€˜god’. That is escapism. I have been given tools in my hands. I have to use them the best I can. I can ask for help, guidance, support but use them I must. And after I use them, I cannot be 100% sure of the outcome either. So I act and leave it at that.
      As my Satguru would say, I have to act and only then will I be able to Observe. Do the mantra I have been given and with practice things will be comprehensible. Mantra brings perspective.

      Eg for a goldsmith, a gold bangle, gold necklace, gold rings are the same gold. He has changed his perspective to see the only true substance ie gold in all these forms which are superficially variable.
      But for a customer who is not trained in the matters of the substance ie gold, the ring, bangle, necklace ie the forms are all different from each other.
      This is the simplest example I can give of what I experience.

        Pranaam Madam,
        I am speechless after reading your reply on Advaita, simply no words. Your words are divine Madam. The analogy to the Heisenberg theory is brilliant!!!!! My sincere namaskar to you . The reply struck me so much that words cant describe the positivity I feel, even the sentences that I typed… Speechless. and with gratitude.

        Many thanks for this fantastic response, JiπŸ™πŸ™ what really struck my attention was the sentence β€˜Mantra brings perspective’! It really cleared some of my queries πŸ™

        Have been able to relate to Heisenberg theory & quantum physics to Vedanta as part of my swaadhyaaya, satsang & sadhana, but never realized β€˜Mantra’ has so much to do with spiritual sadhana until last year! Things picked up so much momentum with the Mantra that was started exactly a year ago (given by my own β€˜Internal Satguru’)πŸ™

        It really fixes the β€˜Internal Geometry’ and the energy flow bringing a different β€˜Perspective β€˜ altogether! Can’t thank enough the Antaratma for thatπŸ™ All this time all the sadhanas have done slow & steady churning & vasana khaya & chittashuddhi, but the Mantra really accelerated the process which I was trying to comprehend & assimilate myself, but your words wisdom gave me so much Reassurance to that…. please accept my deepest heartfelt gratitude πŸ™

        Pranam Tejaswini Ma’am πŸ™πŸ»

        What a mind blowing answer !!! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ» I took time to re-read again&again and read what you wrote about Advitya concept.. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

        Two years back I think, I attended …. to know something about myself and this Universe. It’s 3 days course I think and If I remembered correctly he said something like everything in this Universe is continuously changing and even human body which made up of atoms every second dying and being reborn again this is something human eye can not see this process..

        As I couldn’t believe any gurus easily(I think bcz of being cancer asc, 6,9th lord in 12th bhava n debilitated in Capricorn Navamsa along with Vargotam Saturn 😐) I started searching about this concept and finally stopped at Einstein’s Newtonian determination and Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle..

        I still remember those scientists words after experimenting these principles.
        “God doesn’t play dice with Universe” said Albert Einstein..

        “Einstein stop telling god what to do!” said Niels Bohr after experimenting Heisenberg uncertainty principle..

        What I came to understand is Newtonian determination(karma siddantham) is correct without any internal external disturbances to particles and Heisenberg uncertainty(Free-will) too correct because everything is interlinked and connected to Universe so anything can happen..

        That’s it I stopped thinking and forgot it..

        But now when you used Heisenberg’s principle as example I just stunned.. how elegantly you compare ‘position’ as the SELF and ‘momentum’ as the MAYA.. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» kudos to your art of application in a realistic way.. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

        I felt like Arey I already knew this even though why couldn’t apply this correctly like you and have been carrying this doubt with me.. πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ now you are teaching me the importance of applying acquired knowledge into practical senses..πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

        Coming to your devine article of Advitya concept of Sri Adi-shankaracharya πŸ™πŸ» touched me very deeply.. ✨✨✨

        Once I had to leave my beloved ones for sometime and needed to stay away.. it gave so much pain and I still remember that evening on terrace I prayed to Guru Adi Shankaracharya n asked like why I’m getting this painful situation n why this sadness even i believe you are with me.. and felt so bad and got anger n I said to him I think you cannot understand these feelings n came down and opened mobile You tube casually. There first time I saw “Bhaja Govindam” of Adi-shankaracharya.. YouTube recommended me suddenly.. I opened without interest only as I sulked.. I just astonished after listening it with meaning.. felt like why I’m reacting on temporary emotions this much ? Are these even permanent? And the reality behind these feelings seemed so selfish.. n for one second I thought like how could 32 years old person could tell TRUTH & REALITY of mankind in all phases of life without experiencing it ?? Immediately I could felt his divinity and grace πŸ₯ΊπŸ™πŸ» I became light weighted and could go with lesser missing feeling.. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

        Again one day my atheist friend and I as a god believer had a big debate on this Universe and existence of God.. after 3,4 hours continues conversation, we both reached to a point that who are ‘we’ actually ? Who am ‘I’ ?

        We both respect and love each other even we have great differences in this matter so we concluded that if she finds first who is ‘she’ in her atheist way she will share that with me and Vice – versa..
        And sent off each other..

        And that night I couldn’t sleep properly n asked Adi Shankaracharya why I couldn’t prove anything constructive to her even I believe your existence and how to answer who am ‘I’ ? And I fell in sleep..

        After woke up suddenly I typed who am I ? And it took me to Nirvana shatakam of Adi Shankaracharya.. I just got shocked..😱 how could he see people might stop here n face trouble to answer who am I ?? Immediately I forwarded this to my friend and said in sanatan dharm one guru wrote thousands years ago about ‘I’ πŸ”₯

        I felt so good that moment.. feeling like what we seek is seeking us 😍

        And last year I faced a sudden unforseen situation and I stopped worshipping god and stopped praying to Adi Shankaracharya too.. πŸ˜‘ today Advita concept reminded my bonding with him..πŸ₯ΊπŸ™πŸ» Thank you..πŸ₯ΊπŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

        And my friend asked why there is no specific words to describe ‘I’ ?
        it’s all about “that is not” “this is not” and I really didn’t get answer for that until today I read these πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸ» words of you..πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸ»

        ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨The Atma is described as not this, not this. It is not anything that you see, hear, taste, experience in this creation. You have to transcend creation.
        What it is, cannot be expressed in the words of this creation as creation cannot reach upto the Advaita.

    Just loved your latest article.. your examples are so understandable.. πŸ‘ŒπŸ» now I came to understand very well how Saturn/mars restricts actually.. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

    I have few doubts Mam could you please clarify when you have leisure time kindly mam πŸ™πŸ»

    I read To decipher multiple spouses article.. I heard about Kumbh-Vivah and Tree-Vivah kind of remedies to nullify or to reduce negative impact of multiple marriage issues.. can this be really applicable mam ?

    1) For suppose if 7th house is weak but 2nd house is good can someone go for this kumbh-vivah remedy?? (And yeah we have to see remaining combinations too.. n atleast 3 Or more combinations support this second marriage issue ) but mam for suppose For cancer ascendent Saturn (1Β°)as Natural malefic situated in Capricorn itself along with Rahu (18Β°) and second house lord exalted in Aries.. in this situation can we consider 2nd marriage might be good for native so that to reduce Saturn results through first marriage can native go for this kind of Kumbh Vivah ?? (If remaining combinations also not good for marrital life )

    2) And mam according to Karaka Bhava Nashaya concept if Venus in 7th house shows dwi-kalatra-yog, to reduce intensity of this can one go for this Kumba-Vivah kind of ritual?? (In this case too other combinations not so well)

    3) I read your manglik articles mam how one should divert those energies it’s really so so sensible πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
    I heard mainly for 8th mars astrologers suggesting this Kumbh Vivah in Nasik/some other places like this..

    In all above 3 different cases this remedy can be applicable as per your perception mam ? Not expecting straight
    Yes/No answer mam but just your experience, perception and knowledge on this πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ» before asking I searched and read few after that only I came here..I apologise if I asked too much n if you already wrote about it but I missed it πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

    Hello Madam

    Why the coconut must break in one single blow as you have mentioned in above post, if it takes more than one blow, is it a bad omen?

    Also, is it necessary to collect and throw coconut water also along with the broken pieces to river?

    Btw, we have a river nearby house but it has cremation ground next to it. So, will it be safe to visit river tomorrow, being sarv pitri amavasya, or we can throw the same next day too?



    • astrologerbydefault October 5, 2021 / 9:17 pm

      Hi there
      one blow is necessary, so men do it.
      you cannot eat/ drink that coconut and its water.
      women cannot go there, men can.

      of if you find this to be too tedious, give a go gras to a cow,
      ie feed a cow with a chapati and jaggery or if you cannot make a chapati then even a wheat dough and jaggery works equally well.
      or feed ravens with the chapati, that is also equally good.
      but no other animal can be fed food for the ancestors.


      • Ganu October 5, 2021 / 9:30 pm

        Hello Madam

        Thanks for reply

        I already made the dough myself and chapati for gogras on the shraddha tithi but my mother gave it to cow, so i have to repeat the process as i missed last step ( should have been fed by male).

        Anyway will follow it this time with both gogras+ coconut, as crows are scarce in my area and the prasad gets eaten by pigeons.

        Thak you

        Hi there
        go gras can be given by women also. women can feed ravens too, no issue.

        in mumbai esp around the older temples there was always a person with a cow and people would feed it with the grass bought from the person ,.

        i was home alone this pitrupaksha Avidhva navmi so i gave go gras to cows remembering my ancestors with love and respect.

        only tarpan, pindadana is exclusive to the men. and coconut breaking too coz it has to break in one dash.

    Hello Madam

    Every shraddha, the food we give to cow/crow is tarpan only right? As it is intended for ancestors. Or doing pooja is called tarpan ( done with apsavya, facing south, pouring water via darbha Held in right hand)

    What we do is make 4x dishes ( 1x each for brahman who comes for pooja, cow, crow, dev in home). If these, dev prasad, we eat ourselves.

    Is it correct?

    Thank you


    • astrologerbydefault October 6, 2021 / 8:26 am

      Hi there
      Yes. Its correct

      The food given to cow is also called go gras. It can b done anytime not just during pitrupaksha. Esp if u dream of ancestors it shud immediately be given the nxt day.

    Namaste Tejaswini ji,

    What can cause prashna charts to be incorrect?

    I had tried asking a question using the prashna method ( myself- i didnt go to an astrologer) a few months ago. The answer and timeframe given matched my own dashas and transits and I really truly believed this was accurate. However, the timeframe has come and gone. The event did not occur and I am heartbroken. I have been doing my spiritual practice and Sri suktam daily for months now. I feel as if I am at a loss for what to do now.

    Is it possible that I interpreted it incorrectly? The prashna chart had libra as the ascendant sign with venus conjunct the sun in the 6th house (pisces) and the moon in the 12th house (virgo). Saturn and Jupiter were both in the 4th. My understanding was that even though the ascendant was in a dushamsthana, it would still be favorable because it was exalted.
    Timing wise, i was looking at when venus would transit back to the ascendant libra. Venus has now moved on to scorpio. I also used other timing methods outlined in the prasna marga (Navamsa Elapsed by Lagna lord, Navamsa Elapsed by Navamsa Lagna lord, etc.) and these methods also come to the same time period. I believed this was confirmed by my own ongoing dashas/transits at this time.

    Is this the correct way of interpreting it?

    Thank you

    Hi there Tejaswini ji,

    My name is Sonam and I’m not feeling okay at this moment. My very near and dear friend and mentor passed in front of me yesterday. Abruptly. I cannot seem to make sense of it where my mind can experience a moment of peace. He yelled out for me and I called an ambulance and by the time they arrived, I think his soul had left his body.

    Ma’am, I apologize for any ignorance in my post or lack of understanding that might be obvious. My grandmother who was my parent passed last year and my mentor was the one that was helping me cope with that breakdown. The situational irony seems cruel. Only a few days ago we were joking and I said, “I don’t know what I would do without you, you are not going anywhere right?!” and he smiled and said, “Oh you have me for at least another decade”. He wasn’t elderly, he was in his early 40s. I’m in my 20s and thought that the blow to my spirit when my grandmother passed was enough pain for decades.

    I was already disoriented with life and now it feels even more barren. The weird thing is that even though I feel deeply pained, it is not sadness, at least not the part that stings. I was wondering if there was anything I ought to be aware of, or perhaps a suggestion you might have for completing a ritual as a friend. He was one of the dearest souls I came to know. Does it mean anything that I was the only person there when his soul departed? Is there any responsibility, spiritually, that I ought to heed to? When he yelled for me, I couldn’t get myself to go near him after calling the ambulance. I was so incredibly scared, a fear I have never felt. God understands that, right? I regret not running up to him and holding him as he left.

    I am hysterical. Thank you for any insight and if this isn’t the type of questions you reply to, I understand. I don’t know who else to turn to or if I am able to trust my intuition through this confusion and pain.



    • astrologerbydefault October 6, 2021 / 1:55 pm

      Hi there
      seeing someone leave the body is understandably difficult. Especially if its a loved one.
      you should not blame yourself for anything. you are quite young and were alone at this time. it is very difficult to know what to do in such situations.
      birth and death events both are not in our conscious control. so accept that whatever has happened is for the best, though you may not realise the reason at the moment.

      however when a soul leaves the body, the further activities like the Anteyshti etc are the responsibility of the male heirs, not yours.
      but you can pray to your favourite deity to help the soul move onwards to pitrulok. praying will also help you regain your balance.

      and dont think that your grandmother parents and mentor are gone forever, though physically unavailable they are always going to be there to guide you protect you etc, through the medium of your favourite deity.
      think of your kul devata, ishta devata or if you are not sure then think of Devi Laxmi and Bhagwan Vishnu as your parents. they are the parents of everyone in this creation. they are always there.
      think of them as your mother and father and put your trust in them. listen to the shri sukta or vishnu sahastranama to get over this,
      its understandable if you cry, feel upset, grieve. do so, and let the pain out. but do keep fortifying yourself with the mantra while this phase is going on.

        Much gratitude for giving me clarity through this soulful answer. I went through the similar phase after my Father’s death in 2019-20. Although by that time I had tried to explore about what happens after death through books, net after my mom’s demise in 2005 , nobody could give such a great clarity to me that time. Now I feel myself blessed to come across your blog. Still lots to read and digest for me.

        Ma’m one question is , if loving parents don’t want to get disturbed by our constant remembrance (like all souls), how do they reflect their well-wishes through the Deity as you mentioned?

        While I pray to Devi with Navarna, sometimes Hreeng, or Kleeng, I always imagined my parents alongside me and as if we are all praying to her for blessings. Is it weird or incorrect to do so?

        Since I wear specs of high number (-5, myopia), I find it very uncomfortable and strenuous to eyes to concentrate on the point between eyebrows (adnya Chakra) as elaborated by you. So I imagine her at the vast horizon infront of me. I hope this is fine.

        Another thing is my pull towards one of the ugra Dashamahavidyas, regarding which I had already asked a question and received guidance from you. I had always had a pull towards Kali devi since childhood and started reading books about her, Ramkrishna mission etc, though our Kuldaivat is Ganapati. We do not know about Kuldevi but mother used to go to Jegeshwari temple which is 300 year old Durga temple in the Pune city where I live. Luckily I got the opportunity to visit Kolkata for work related things and I could even make it to the temple twice. It was a soulful experience and a heart’s call .

        This mahavidya is related to her. I have cried out to her 3 months ago in desperation and for protection due to the situation that I am in from all angles – no parents, rivalry from siblings, increasing age, not good financials…. I feel peace after that and am continuing.

        However, after reading your articles , and answer, I have reduced intensity and frequency of her beej mantra. Can I continue Shri Sukta once, Navarna mantra and Gayatri 11 times in the morning and this Mahavidya beej mantra 51 times in the evening ? Will this balance out both gentle energies and fierce protective ones – of which I need both to fight out and survive in this world?

        My gratitude on this auspicious day of Ghatasthapana today…May Devi bless you and family !


      • astrologerbydefault October 7, 2021 / 10:36 pm

        Hi there

        when they go to pitrulok, ie become ancestors they start operating through your 9th house, not the 4th 10th.
        these specific souls are not your ‘parents’ anymore, ie the energies have changed.
        they are your ‘ancestors’ from your chart’s point of view.
        so if you can adjust to this new point of view, you will feel more settled in life.

        also they have shed their physical body which is linked to a specific birth time, so they are ‘more’, they are their higher selves, their soul is not just your ‘mother’ ‘father’.
        eg suppose your current life’s mother was your brother in your past life, then was your son in some other, then your wife in even some more older life, this soul now will remember all that it was as it enters pitrulok.
        it becomes ‘more’

        naturally you will feel emotional at such times.
        and do feel the emotions, grieve etc, but dont get caught in it.. there is always more.
        trust Time, Mahakaal, he has decided that this event will happen and it has happened for the highest good of everyone concerned.

        then the energies of a house cannot be ‘vacant’. ie mom physically died, but the 4th house has to create something, eg land, vehicle, house, etc, anything to make up for this ‘vacancy’,
        if such a big space occupied by ‘mother’ got free in your life, something will be rushing in to fill it
        so one should be very alert in these times, to receive what is coming with a open heart.

        this is an intelligent way of looking at things,

        this is my personal experience after seeing the physical deaths of my 4 grandparents and mother.

        i wrote a few posts on physical death etc, go thru them if you want

        you dont have to roll up your eyes! i have written this in several posts, doing this will strain the physical eyes.
        the 3rd eye is not a physical thing
        it may be located at at the forehead, but not in the physical body
        i have written the best thing to do is to visualise the rising sun at the far horizon. keep the eyes unfocussed but be aware of the space at the third eye point. your attention should be at this point.
        eg suppose you are cheating in your exams. you are copying from the scrap of paper, ur eyes are on it. but you are very much aware of the invigilator’s position sitting at the table in the front of the room? am sure you must remember this during your school days?
        the same thing, physical eyes straight but attention upwards
        Do not roll up the eyes. i have seen some idiotic images of Shambhavi mudra where they are rolling up their eyes, these people are going to injure their eye muscles, never ever roll up the eyes.

        i personally do a lot of pujas of Ugra devatas, its like they hold me in their arms as one would hold a child.
        but what happens is that the energies of the person change. they start resonating with the ugra nature of their adored deities.
        eg my personal energies are not saumya but more ugra. eg i never shout, argue or behave aggressively, i rarely raise my voice, not with my staff, juniors, son, nieces/nephews never. but people who dont do pujas are scared of me, the aura is terrifying for these regular people. people who dont do pujas stay a few feet away from me, they can come really close to me physically, it makes them uneasy.
        also i process mine and others behaviour/emotions differently.
        several of my relatives do pujas of this sort. eg one of my friends was saying that one relative is so terrifying that it feels that he will suddenly take a sword out and cut off his head. and to me this relative is one of the most balanced and reasonable persons i know.
        so if you start doing pujas of ugra devatas be ready for this effect on you and the effect that you will have on others including your family members.
        also for practice of these mantras you need some sort of isolation and have to live your life with stricter rules.

        Devi Kali is Ganapati’s mother, ie the creator of Om, so is obviously the mother of everyone in this creation, if anyone calls out to her for help, she will naturally respond.

        but as alwys, as in all matters, personal spiritual practice is everyone’s personal choice. you have to decide for yourself,

        Hello Madam

        Sorry to interrupt on this thread, but is it necessary to have proper outlet for the energy generated through sadhna ( may be in terms of intellectual, physical work, exercise etc) else it drives either or all of shadvikar. I personally experienced that body heat increases after sadhana for a long duration, and it also fuels anger.



      • astrologerbydefault October 8, 2021 / 8:52 am

        Hi there
        I have already written somewhere tht Gayatri is more than the power of a billion suns. All mantras are grant the power to control motion, ie they are pure energy. And β€˜heat’ or anger is the lowest expression of β€˜energy’.
        Eg when u learn reiki its first felt as heat on the palms. Later its felt as very faint β€˜vibrations’ or a sense of β€˜density’. Thts when u know tht the power has increased its flow in u.

        why do u think we have all those rules fr higher level sadhaks? U have to reduce exposure to tamogun rajogun and later even satvagun. Doing sadhana and still living a tamasic or even a rajasic life is very dangerous. Later u will leave the satvagun also behind.
        Only thing is to increase consumption of desi cow milk and ghee. I used to mix spoonfuls of desi ghee in desi cow milk and drink it. Also monitor what u eat, cook ur food urself etc. Limit unnecessary interactions with others.
        but these rules is not possible fr everyone.
        So do the best u can.

        If u r doing high levels of mantras etc then u cannot expect to continue living a tamasic rajasic life. Only then does it turn into anger. Else its all absorbed in the body as it shud b.

        I never get angry. The last time really i lost my temper was a decade or so ago.

    Namaste Tejaswini Mam,

    as a practitioner of Soham and conscious breathing per your guidance, the changes in last 1.5 years are very visible. The ability to see the leela of mind and how thoughts lead to “me” becoming prisoner with chains of “mine/mera” is developing as well.

    One question: will there ever come a stage when mind will go fully silent without needing to keep tab on breathing or mantra consciously. I do see consciousness becoming more powerful in terms of taming the mind but from I perceive mind is not becoming pure enough so ultimately it doesn’t needs to be tamed.

    Sincerely grateful for all your wisdom and guidance since past 1.5 years,

      you can do it on the sun or on the central point of the shri yantra etc. people who do extensive personal practice focusing the mind at the 3rd eye eg Dhyan find it useful. it helps to get the mind trained to be still at one point.

      if you are doing it on the sun, then do it only when the sun is at the horizon, ie reddish gold in color, this will be only a few mins before sunset and after sunrise. start with a few seconds and continue only if you feel like it. never do it at any other time of the day. it will stress the eyes.

        I have 2 question about giving the daana via the river,

        1) Does it matter if the daana actually flows in the water to some distance? Because I have a river where i can put it from the river bank, but the flow of water is less so the things will get stuck somewhere nearby only OR I can offer it from the center of the river from the bridge over it, but then I will have to throw it from some height. Any of these two methods is ok?

        2) If the riverbanks has the cremation ground next to it on both the sides of the accessible river bank, then is this place still ok?

Also, the person doing the dana should buy these things himself rather than someone else from his family.

        Reading your posts on Rahu-Ketu, I got the clarity. I’ve just recently developed this unusually profound interest in learning Vedic astrology!
        What you’ve written is indeed so true and I can relate to it so immensely.
        My ketu/rahu is in 4-10 axis. I never really received any kind of real affection from my mother as a child. My father was “distant”, yes… Sailing most of the time. My father is no more now however… And I’ve learned to be distant from my mother as I don’t get good vibes… She’s more for her son than her daughters. I do respect her since she’s my mother and feel for her. But the affection I’ve so missed as a kid, I seek and feel in Divine Mother, whom I consider my real mother.

        You mentioned you live now in the Himalayas…its my dream to be there too. As a child I visited often and felt strange divine energies. I still remember that feeling and the guiding, overlooking, beautific presence.

        Thank you so much for your posts…love reading them! May God bless you!

      Hi there
      I do not trust the reiki teachers of today Unless they follow the exact teachings of Madam Takata.
      The person cannot be un-initiated.
      So choose ur teacher properly.

      Fr disobedient kids, make them do the Gayatri tht will resolve most of their issues.

      My son β€˜pulled’ all the Reiki symbols out of my cousin when he was 5 yrs or so. He was never formally initiated but he can fully use them. But he also has his Gayatri, ie frm 6yrs onwards he is doing his Sandhya. Reiki is just another form of sadhana. If u r doing any sadhana reiki is automatically going to b there. Its just another way of channelising mahapran.

      Fr regular kids, best wait.

    Regarding your article on curses. Do places or houses carry a curse? Why do people say to change house in case of inexplicable miseries in life?
    This is my personal issue. My mother in law, father and now mother stay with us. Other children were / are not interested in keeping them. But all the three were unhappy with us finding fault with everything and always complaining that they would have been better with other children though they themselves knew the truth about other children. I want to know whether their bad words (I don’t want to use the word curse) against us will have any effect on us. I believed in ‘no’ so far, but now our son is facing very difficult times for no reason (for a very long time) and we, the parents are in deep agony. Astrologers say that there are no major flaws in the horoscope and advise us to do pariharam. I am initiated and do japa of Mahashodasi. Please correct my thinking and advise.

      this house and the people living in it are very unhappy, they fight and argue all the time. there are misfortunes constantly, no peace of mind. anyone with positive energy going to this house cant sit there for long, and doesnt feel like visiting again. the negativity here seems almost conscious to me.

      houses where people have suffered or died bad deaths.

      i know that parents can emotionally smother their adult children. wrote on it in a few posts and it is not good for both.
      so if your parents are mistreating you to such an extent that you feel bad about yourself. best would be to talk it over with them.
      listening to bad words from anyone is not a good thing. request them to behave in a better way.
      but one can never abandon aged parents, its the duty of every child to help them esp in medical issues and in general life, if you dont then it becomes a severely bad karma.
      but you can put a emotional space or come up with some alternative arrangement between them and you so that it remains manageable for both.

      Request your Devi to help you as she is the Mother of all.

        Thank you amma for your immediate response. Thank you for your kind and practical words but I don’t want any of my words to make them feel unwanted in the only place they have now. I pray to my Gurumandala roopini Lalitha Mahatripurasundari for help constantly. I take care of elders in family, let Devi take care of my son. It is so unfortunate that you don’t entertain personal consultancy. I do respect your decision and pray to Ambal that you continue sharing your knowledge for the benefit of others.

        Hi there
        if you choose to leave it to the Devi Mahamaya Lalitatripursundari, then do it completely, then do not think negatively about what your parents say to you. ignore it, think that that the Devi is standing there protecting you from their words/actions. feel her presence around you and your son all the time protecting from everything.
        because if you start worrying about their ‘bad words’, you will amplify your fears on the subconscious levels, thus create problems for yourself.

    Does harming/killing snakes makes the person suffer a lot? Does it have effect on their children?
    If yes, then Why are snakes given this special status and are there any remidies

    In your blog about how to do Dhyan, you mentioned that SoHum has to be recited 108 times. What is the significance of the specific 108 count?

        I have one more question. You have mentioned that while breathing in, stomach should be used instead of chest. But in normal breathing our chest expands. If I use stomach then after a few breaths, I become uneasy because I don’t get the fullness of breathing. Meaning that I find myself short of breath and only when I expand chest I get the feeling of filled with oxygen. I hope I could explain what I am trying to say.

        So then why should we use stomach rather than chest?

        Hi there
        you are breathing wrong normally.
        in normal breathing the abdomen expands more as the diaphragm is pushed downwards and the chest rises slightly.

        i have seen some people who want to show off a flat stomach, have started breathing unnaturally,
        just raising the chest and not allowing the abdomen to expand. you cannot do dhyan if you are breathing in this odd manner.
