Warm Greetings my friends! Our desire is to share the miraculous ancient knowledge with the world with the intention to help guide people in their lifepaths. Our interpretations are all based on classical authorities of Vedic astrology and their books, as well as general observations.


  • Great read! I haven’t found a single website describing vedic principles so lucidly and methodically like here. Leo midheaven, with sun in the 7th house. Any specifics that you might want to add regarding my placement?

    • Hello Riaz! I am very delighted to read your positive and honest feedback. My biggest reward is that it truly helps you and others.

      Your Sun becomes the ruler of your karma or main duties which is in 10th from its own sign. This doubles the energies of the 10th house making you extremely persistent, responsible, and headstrong especially when considering the fact that Taurus is a fixed earth sign.

      While you are very persistent, but also extremely inflexible and strictly fixed to your own decisions which bring both good and hard results. However, if Venus cancels enmity with your Sun, you are very justice-loving which allows flexibility when it requires protecting truth, balance, and societal harmony.

      There are tons of other matters as well which would make this comment way too long.

      • Hello Martin, thanks for the response. As always, very insightful. My sun is in Gemini though at the later half of my seventh- conjunct jupiter in the 8th and mercury on the 7th- which makes me a little less inflexible, or at least I like to think so.

        I appreciate what you are doing here. As someone who is deeply interested in increasing ancient knowledge of vedic astrology, but sadly always limited by the finitude of time to read actual texts, I have found your effort extremely useful. I look forward to exploring the contents here gradually. Thank you!

  • It was nicely explained about 10th Lord in 7th house , it would be better if explain what type of profession can do , in my case 10 Lord Saturn in 7th house at Tula along time with Lagna Lord Mars. Please share your insight.

    Additionally , 2nd 7th Lord Venus in 9th house with 9th 12th Lord.


    • Thank you very much Ganesh for your feedback.

      I left out professions because to determine it the holistic chart should be analyzed. However, I can include possibilities or the nature of the profession sometime in the future.

  • Stunning description of my relationship with my late husband. Taurus Rising, with Saturn conjunct Rahu in Anuradha. My moon is in Jyeshta. Mars in Purvabhadrapada. I could never understand with those planets in my 7th house how I was blessed such an extraordinary spouse. He basically saved my life and sanity with his inner strength, wisdom, and compassion over 35 years. He possessed all the qualities you describe in your article, and virtually none of the corrupt aspects manifested in spite of the malefics. Rahu and the Moon certainly activated their nakshatras with terrific intensity, and so life has been a series of warp-spasms. Nevertheless, these qualities you describe have helped me grasp my experience of him in a new and most beneficial way. Now I have met a second man, and I am much more capable of being a loving partner. Seems my life has another chapter…
