Is Missing = Lost?

I just had an interesting insight with regard to the last post.

I wish to share this insight here.

It is possible that someone else has had this insight before.


It’s not about dibs, or copyrights.

It’s about sharing and growth.

We practice Astrology in an inclusive manner.

So, in the last post, the missing person wasn’t “lost” at any stage.

He had left home of his own free will, and had not lost his way.

He knew exactly where he was going.

At no point did he lose his way.

Prashna had a fixed Lagna, indicating that situation should remain same.

Son wasn’t lost. He remained not lost.

That’s the insight.

To what does this exactly lead?

I’ll tell you where I want this to lead to.

Missing because of free will + Fixed Lagna + Protection connected to 4th = Wasn’t lost, still not lost, returns safely.

Missing because lost + Cardinal Lagna (movable / Chara Lagna) + Protection connected to 4th = Was lost, finds way, returns safely (change in status, finds the way).


To build a usable framework applying above conjecture, one will need to see the majority of many such examples / cases following this chronology.

Let’s see if that happens.

Missing Son Prashna – Jan 23, 2019, 8:08pm, Panipat (India) – Happiness and Protection on the Path / Way

missing person chart jan 23, 2019

Chart by Jyotish Tools

Chart check

– Sun is at 9 degrees Capricorn, which is where it should be on January 23rd.
– Lagna is 8 Houses away from the Sun, which is where it should be at 8:08 pm on January 23rd in Panipat, India.
– Saturn is in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Scorpio, and that’s ok for January 2019.
– Chart is correctly cast.

Key features of analysis

– Fixed Lagna, degree conjunct with Lagna Lord Sun – Lagna Lord has stern eye on Lagna, with protection and betterment in mind.

– 2 natural benefics, Jupiter and Venus, in 4th – State of happiness protected. Sure, let these benefics not see eye to eye. However, they protect. God’s grace here.

– 7th House engulfed by 4 planets. 7th Lord in 5th, and Lord 5th Jupiter in 4th – The path / way does not seem to be heavy.

Advice given

– Missing son seems to be ok. There is protection enough to grant a state of happiness resulting from safe return.


– Father is strict with the son, to the extent of physical violence. Son runs away from home and goes on a four day pilgrimage on his own. Son is 11. On the pilgrimage, son meets a friendly family which ensures success of the pilgrimage and which travels back with the son on train, almost all the way up to the hometown of the son, which is coincidentally quite near to where this family lives. Son returns home safely.

A Boon called Astrology

What’s the biggest benefit of Astrology to you?

Let’s go through the benefits that Astrology provides.

Bread and butter.





Good karma.

Fill in the blanks.

See what fits you.

The thing about bread and butter is, that swim you will.

You will find a source of income. 

It doesn’t have to be from Astrology. It can be, but it doesn’t have to be.

There’s something bigger here.

Much bigger.

In the silence, after everybody has gone, what remains with you?

Your friend. 


By now, many charts swim in your mind. 

They have become entities. 

You delve into them at will.

You get a kick when a combination unfolds into a new meaning.

Something fresh keeps revealing itself in your charts, throughout your entire life, as in through and through.

Astrology is…

…for life.

It keeps you FRESH.

It is a philosophy you can lean on, forever.

It gives fulfillment.

After all the dust has settled, what do you want more?

More material sutff…

…or fulfillment?






Astrologer’s state of mind. 


On native, chart, synthesis and output. 

What stimulates synthesis?

The combinations at hand, that strike the eye. 

Combinations catalyze thought-process. 

They transport the Astrologer’s mind in a flash of thought. 

Parameters of transport are defined by the vibration of the native, and the mental condition of the Astrologer.

Mental connects to physical, so there’s no doubt that the Astrologer needs to be fit to read well and consistently. 

Where is the Astrologer’s mind transported to?

It’s trying to latch on to the life-vector of the native.

It latches on, travels along for a bit, understands speed and direction, and comes back. 

Then comes output.  

Better the connection, better the output. 

So how are we to understand combinations and their purpose?

Combinations are fast-track portals allowing almost immediate entry onto the native’s life-vector. 


Reinforcing Free Will – or killing it?

We’re not in the business of killing things.

If there’s free will in the equation, we will recognize it, and then reinforce it.

Why? Also, how?

Areas in life trap us.

Other areas allow us room.




We don’t need more.

We are going to build up on this.

We ignite the concept of maximum free will utility in the consulting person’s mind.

We identify such areas (in the chart at hand), encouraging time-investment and systems-development in these areas.

Once a person comes into his or her own in these areas, systems evolve to overlap other areas, where one might be trapped.

Little by little, one starts freeing oneself, or creating alternatives.

Now, add time, effort and evolution.

There comes a point in the time-space continuum, where the area of imprisonment is completely overshadowed.

This can be because of breakthrough.

Or, the alternatives have now become skyscrapers, such that one’s complete involvement in them dims the vibration of problem areas.

That’s where we want to be…

…and that’s where we want to take people with our Astrology.

Commanding One’s Environment

O Astrologer, 

Command your environment.

What is the environment we speak of here?

One’s Astrology arsenal,…

…physical and mental health,…

…connection to the person asking…

…and connection to the Universe. 

That’s it. 

That’s the parameter one’s focus is going to revolve in.

One doesn’t need more to do a great reading. 

Mental and physical health is an outcome of lifestyle. 

One’s lifestyle is one’s lookout. 

A hap-hazard lifestyle will lead to low-quality readings and vice-versa. 

One’s Astrology arsenal is the per saldo vector of where one’s been with Astrology, what all one has seen, and where one is now. This will stand by one’s side in the next reading, becoming stronger and stronger with each step.  

Sit close the to the person asking. Shake hands. Auras will intermingle. Let your system get an idea of the person’s vibration. Let your biochemistry begin churning with the person’s vibration. Breathe the air in the room a number of times. 

Go over the chart. 

Again and again and again. 


…to the Universe through the chart…

…and to the person asking through the proximity. 

Bind both the connections. 

Let your system churn. 

Knowledge will flash in your mind. 

That’s the output of the churning. 

Start speaking. 

Let the person’s body-language fine-tune what’s coming onto your tongue and out of your mouth. 

Many times, you’ll be surprised at the stuff that comes out of you and hits the person at hand like a dagger. 

You can see the person’s hair standing on end, with his or her skin breaking out into goosebumps. 

Then you know, that the reading is progressing well. 

A Question of Life and Death

Img 20180529 174619

I’m asleep. Phone rings. It’s a question of life and death.

7 month baby in womb. Heart has stopped beating. Mother’s blood pressure too high. She’s not able to get the baby out. C-section can’t be performed, because mother is allergic to many anaesthetic drugs. Waiting for uterus to open naturally. High BP is causing critical condition.

Prashna : Will she die?

Am I even qualified to do this (I remember asking myself at the time)? Nevertheless, here goes (I remember telling myself).

Lagna, Lagna Lord, Moon and Sun in fixed signs indicate life for such a Prashna.

The condition of the foetus is indicated by retrograde Jupiter and Rahu in the 5th, with Jupiter being Karaka for children, retrograde, and Rahu in the 5th signifying abortion. The 5th Lord is in the 12th, forming an Ishrafa with Saturn, 12th Lord. The foetus has died.

With Yogakaraka Venus being in the Lagna, and Lagna Lord Saturn aspecting Lagna, the doctor is competent.

This Venus is crucial here. It conjuncts the Sun (Lord 7th) in the Lagna, and is in Purna Ithasala with the Moon in the 7th. Yogakaraka Venus is exercising vital benefic influence on the givers of life, i.e. the Sun and the Moon, who by the way also signify disease here, because of their connection to the 7th, with all this happening in the 1/7 axis.

The Lagna Lord Saturn is in Kendra, and will be overall considered very mildly benefic, since it is Lagna Lord after all, in Kendra, aspecting Lagna. The Kendras are devoid of any retrogression. 8th Lord is not in any Kendra. Kendras look strong.

Lord 4th and Lord 7th are conjunct in the Lagna, signifying that doctor is able to treat the condition.

Mars, Lord 10th, is in its Mulatrikona House in the 3rd, and aspects the 10th from here. Ketu, a malefic, is in the 11th. Overall, the patient has tremendous constitutional strength to resist the condition. The 3rd House is one of extraordinary efforts. Mars will bash against the wall and break it, being in a position of strength. 10th stands for patient. Malefic in Trishadhaya give tremendous ability to push hard.

Lagna Lord Saturn in the 4th forms an Ishrafa with 7th Lord Sun in the Lagna. The doctor has intensified treatment because condition seems to be getting out of doctor’s hand. Lagna Lord is in Paap Kartari Yoga. It forms a weak Ishrafa with 5th and 8th Lord Mercury in the 12th. The doctor has not been able to save the baby. Was it due to some mistake of the doctor initially, regarding dosage of treatment or something? Nevertheless, I still feel that the doctor is competent enough to save her. Lagna Lord aspects the 10th, and is in exchange with Yogakaraka in Lagna. A destined doctor is at the spot, who will save her.

At around 7:45 am, Moon (6th Lord) in 7th will enter Purna Ithasala with Yogakaraka Venus in Lagna, and this will remain the case till about 11:30 am. During this time, doctor and condition will be battling face to face, no holds barred, with both pushing maximum. Bottomline to be noted is that the Moon will only leave Purna Ithasala with Venus after or around the time one event occurs.

At around 11:30 am, the foetus might abort, being shown by Rahu entering Taurus, the 4th House, which is 12th from the 5th.

Thus, before the Moon enters the 8th House, the Yogakaraka (synonymous with the doctor here) will have done his or her work, i.e. saved the patient.

So much for analysis. Now to gather the strength to say it.

I gather the strength. It is 8:32 am.

I say it. Don’t change the doctor. Foetus is likely to abort around 11:30 am. She will be ok after foetus aborts. Do anything to make her hang on till 11:30 am.
News comes in at 1:30 pm. Foetus has aborted at 11:30 am. Mother is out of danger.
