Otherwise, only capitalize subject names that would be capitalized anyway (because they are proper nouns or adjectives), such as English, Latin, or American. Words such as chemistry, art, social studies, physical education, are not usually capitalized when written in sentences. You might want to add this to our Writers’ Guidelines under the “Capitalization” Section].

The following chart belongs to an individual who was diagnosed with meningitis in his teens. As indicated, Mars is in Aries, though in the 3rd pada of Ashwini. Nonetheless, Ravana Samhita does not associate Mars in Ashwini in the 3rd pada with any such disease.

Venus related

 

See chart above, the native is working in the TV & Film Industry which is Venus related and incidentally he is not even a graduate though has done technical education which means less educated & this is exactly as Ravana Samhita said.

  • Venus’ aspect reflects one whose needs are extensive. [???This sounds silly…Shubhakaran says “has most of the necessities of life and drinks more water and will be very close to the ruling class.”, which also sounds silly…please fix this as it does not seem correct.] Such a egoistic & self centered native will have close associations with higher authorities.

Rahu in Krittika

  • The native may have extra-martial affairs.
  • He will have a black mole on his face.
  • He may have surplus sexual desire, and is healthy and wealthy.
  • The native is intelligent, devoted to his father, and blessed by his employer.

Second Pada

  • The native is spiritual but deprived of children and wealth.
  • He is a traveller and marries more than once.
  • He experiences hardship in foreign countries [Sunil…say “countries” instead of “land,” or say “lands” not “land.”].

Third Pada

  • The native may have a speech impediment.
  • He is capable of doing any deed – whether good or bad. [Once again I think this sounds silly, so please check it… and also, Shubhakaran says the opposite: “He is an idler. He does not do any work, good or bad.”]
  • He faces financial difficulties.

Fourth Pada

  • The native separates from his family.
  • He does not perform his duties and responsibilities, even after his marriage.
  • In the name of God, the native leaves behind his home and wealth to pursue the life of a spiritual pilgrim.
  • He wastes his inheritance and the vast wealth earned in his younger years, and becomes poor.

Ketu in Krittika

 

First Pada

  • The individual faces frequent personal and professional difficulties.
  • He is affected with stomach-related diseases and sexual diseases. [OK please double-check this as Shubhakaran says “Cardiac trouble” not these other illnesses.].
  • He works in a meteorological, chemical, metallurgical, or other similar technical profession. His lifespan is between 40 to 50 years.

Second Pada

  • He separately lives from his relatives.
  • In spite of poverty, he is quite fond of women and drink.
  • He suffers abuse from others.

Third Pada

  • The native is a risk-taker and takes aid from the government and [Shubhakaran says “Huge loss in speculation. He may receive some strictures from the ruling class…these are very different from what is here….strictures are constraints, not aid.] keeps company with low-class people.
  • He may have illegitimate children, suffers hatred from his family, gets co-operation and helps from others from time-to-time. [Double check this too…Shubhakaran says, “Family in turmoil due to birth of a female child born not out of him. He receives timely help from others in case of need.” This does not mean illegitimate child of his own does it?].

[Sunil: here female child is not written but it is written that the child would be of another man, which means that his wife has child of another man, apart from this no other thing is written]

 

Fourth Pada

  • The native very often faces obstacles in his business.
  • He frequently engages in altercations with his superiors.
  • He faces marital difficulties.
  • If he marries at later age, he enjoys luxuries and happiness in marital life.

[Double check this too…Shubhakaran say it more clearly that, “Faces lots of problems in marriage or marriage is late in life. Leads a life of luxury and comfort.”]

Publishers Note: It is of interest that a remedy is given for the same Ketu in 4th pada in regards to marriage, which is if he/she marries late in life then there is happiness & prosperity. See age of Ketu is 42 & some say 48 so if one marries late in life by then the negative effect of Ketu would be over thus giving happiness in marital life.   [Sunil…this does not make sense….what do you mean by the same Rahu in 4th pada…same as what????] (Juliana, i am so sorry it was a typo it should not be rahu, it should be ketu)
