It is described in Hora sastra that the purpose of Astrology is to find out one's inborn tendancies and act as per the time by studying the planetary combinations so as to realise God; to reach the ultimate pupose of human life. But now a days the astrologers have made this divine science a way to make money by exploiting the fear factor in a human being. Isn't it wrong?

sycology tells see something in both ways!

u have ridiculled astrologers how many of u know that
the great rishi Bhrigu who tested the tirumoorthis brahma vishnu siva duly was father of lakshmi and he stroked at this lakshmi sthana of lord venkatesha and thus bringing separation of lakshmi and vishnu and his discention...

so see bhrigu got curse from lakshmi that u must sell ur vidya brahmins "u wont enjoy best status from society as u discraced lakshmi herself"

as goddess lakshmi is my mother and in my childhood i said "brigu bigu pannate ..." unknowingly meant the karma is carried....

money is needed by spritual men to do homas to take care of ashrams as also money is needed by astrologers to earn for their living....

since we have given astrologers in line to sprituals we suffer next take my case "every old man who saw astrology or palmistry from me would give his life load on my brain but paid nothing,except gettogether do u think its right for profession,

u carry a superstition that astrologers and sprituals must not ask money then where would money come to them for their living...

are like lakshmi's curse u want all rishis to be poor while guiding wonder many brahmins are now in software job which is thank god is not considerd sin to get money...

As a astrologer i solved many problems of society
1)who would finance me for my research now their are no kings who support the research next...
2)are nt u not repeating lakshmi's curse...
"u will sell ur vidya to earn"
3)do something to nullify the curse.....

1)poverty 2)richness 3)ideal...

i will explain my real time problems i met in consultation that may enlighten the pain of astrolger mainly persons who do it with full dedication like me...

they are:
1)my consultation with Dhurai murugar (5 min Rs150)1992
2)have a NAP in the PAN.

in short as they made me god i just suffered pain of burning in pan as they encountered their problems one by one.

with love

raja yogis now come no money free class!

all the raja yogis are together and lthey live they do take free class but look
1)they make huge profits from grants well wishers who will pay men like me who have no support...

u wont give money for consultation....

how would u continue research....

how would u live.....

why my father forced me to take prof job when i well settled in this job:

Doctor or surgen for operation gets money is right money everywhere is right but astrologer who takes all ur load on back and guides u should not ask money....

then tell what u want him to do...

to be a sanyasi if so why should he see u he can be merry with god...

"u want others to keep to very high standards what u do to support that ideal....nothing just vain talk"

happy times and poverty go with rajayogis if so what of others...

with love

You choose what has to be done. Scriptures and shastras are not meant for sale. you do not do charity for name and fame but as a duty. No one asked you to choose astrology for a living. astrology is nothing more than a suggestive guide.Doctors can be prosecuted if wrong diagnose is done, wrong medicine is given. If you knew astrology before helping others you should have read and predicted your life first. This itself would have revealed that you are good at nothing but crying, CRYING and crying.

Vedic Astrology is an ancient Indian science which explains planetary motions and positions with respect to time and their effect on humans and other entities on earth. Vedic astrology can be traced thousands of years back. Early Vedic astrology was only based on the movement of planets with respect to stars, but later on it started including zodiac signs as well. According to Vedic astrology there are 27 constellations made up of 12 zodiac signs, 9 planets and 12 houses with each house and planet representing some aspect of human life. Depending on when a person is born, the 12 signs are distributed among the 12 houses and 9 planets are placed in various houses. This visual representation of the snapshot of the signs and planets is called a horoscope chart. Vedic astrology is nothing but interpreting the meaning of these arrangements as it applies to humans and other entities.

What is Rahu in Vedic astrology?

This is your Answer !!!

Rahu is north-node of the moon. According to Hindu Mythology, during Samudra Manthan Rahu was a demon who drank Amrita. Lord Vishnu cut off Rahu's head using Sudarshan Chakra before the nectar could pass his throat. But because of effect of nectar he remained immortal. The headless body of Rahu is known as Ketu.

Rahu is that greed for nectar in our life. Wherever Rahu is placed in the birth chart, it shows our strong desire to achieve that thing in our life by any means(that depends upon sign it is placed upon and aspects of other planets.) On the other hand wherever Ketu is placed which is exactly opposite of Rahu shows things in which we are uninterested. For example, if Rahu is placed in 10th house,then there is strong desire to achieve high status and great power and position. Ketu will be in 4th house that indicates lack of interest in home life.
