Dasha Periods of the Wayward Rahu - Part 8
Dr. K.S. Charak

Of the natural malefics, the mention of Rahu generates a peculiar awe and anxiety. Rahu’s dasha periods are often quite important in one's life and are remembered long after they are over, irrespective of whether they prove beneficial or harmful to the native. The author elaborates the subtle point in the analysis of Rahu’s dasha.

Aroma of Varga (Divisional) Charts - Part 2
Dr. Suresh Chandra Mishra

Dwadashamsha Chart represents parents as well as gains from them, as also all worldly comforts and the well-being of a native. According to Parashara, all sorts of Arishta fall in the province of Trimshamsha. The falure, accidents, calamities, lack of physical as well as mental comforts should be checked from this chart.

The author discusses the various rules to analyse both these divisional charts with the help of example charts.

Prospects for President George W. Bush
Marguerite Dar Boggia

Many forecasts have been made that the President of the USA elected in the year 2000 will not finish his term. This is based on the election of Presidents when when the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction is in Earth signs in years ending with zero. President George W. Bush was elected in November of 2000.

Marguerite does not believe that one should forecast the exact time of death of anyone and also believe that we create our own future Karma by our present thoughts and actions. She not only analysis the horoscopes of George Bush but also of his father, mother, children and brother to show how the destiny is interlinked with blood relations.

Laghu Jatakam - Part 8
English Translation and Commentary by Dr. K S Charak

Varahamihira is considered the greatest authority on Vedic astrology after the era of the sages like Parashara. He was born near Ujjain during the sixth century AD. His most popular works are the Brihat Jataka and the Brihat Samhita. The Laghu Jatakam is a rather abridged version of the Jataka text. Easy to comprehend and rich in substance, it is a classic that must be studied alike by the novice and the master.

The True Essence of Jyotisha Shastra - Part 2
K Chandra Hari

The how and why of astrology had been one of the most baffling issues of science since the time of Newton, during the presently dominant paradigm of intellectual inquiry. Researches have failed to provide a valid demonstration of astrology in the same manner as the theories underlying its predecessor, viz., astronomy. K Chandra Hari is a scientist-astrologer and presents his views on the subject in this brilliant article.
