Vol 4 – Publitorial – Part 1
It was an issue to remember befitting the homage to an Old Master of the Science who had passed away. It was a 425 page Vol. reaching over 96 countries with 15937 visitors as of 1st Dec, 2008 (Vol. 3 was around 5515 visitors – 77 countries) the detailed statistics of it can be downloaded along with the log report in the download section of the site. We would henceforth refrain in supplying stats as it’s in a way boasting around.
We do not know much about computers & sites so with our limited knowledge of website technology we foolishly gave links to the log reports in last Publitorial and the webmaster later disengaged it next day. Scolding us, that people can do cyber attacks if log reports are given out openly. Our apologies.
Must break our tradition now & quote USA Vedic Astrologer Sandy Crowther: ‘Saptarishis Astrology…it is truly a remarkable publication for the astrological community…I don’t know how you all do it, but your efforts (with the arrival of each new issue), seem to TOP the last issue…which I always think cannot be beat! Anyone with eyes and a heart can surely see the life energies that are put into this wondrous publication. Thank you again.
Though the above is of the milder accolades that have been received kindly note the word heart & which we would link in Part 2 of the Publitorial. Sandy’s & others blessings must go to the writers, volunteers, copy editors, proof readers, translators, designers & webmaster who slog day and night, they need an applause for the revolution these handful of astro lovers exhibit to the entire astro community, displaying fully a new concept of ‘Giving Back To the Community’ & maybe to themselves in their next lives as we all would have this website still functioning when we are reborn giving easy access to learn as compared to print magazines where we cannot access old issues. The merit of this charity of education will be earned in this life or next depending on the sign of the 3rd house of one’s chart apart from other factors that need to be considered.
Congratulations must be accorded to those who predicted Obama’s outcome and standing ovation to R.G.Krishnan of USA, DiNorah Kitchener of Canada & Anthony of Hawaii through his dreams prediction which was sent to us via email prior to the event. It is noteworthy that R.G. Krishnan used the newly revealed CSP Arc Method (published Vol. 3) which is not dependent on the correct birth time and even a Western Astrology adept can master it in an hour with some guidance. Norah used profections which is similar to BCP method and she had predicted in Saptarishis Astrology Vol 2, indicating that Hillary would be the 2nd in command. As we write this there are news reports that Hillary could become the Secretary of State which is more powerful than being Vice President. Let’s face it; we all saw what the name Condoleezza Rice came to mean in world politics in the last few years.
There is an astrologer who is 92 years old and praise to him for still pursuing & predicting at this age, sticking to a technique called Age Harmonics (we have requested him to write on this method whenever he can for SA). He is from Netherlands and we had wanted him to present the prediction he made in the The Real Astrology forum months back, but due to his age he is not in a position to compose an article for us. Our love for elderly astrologers & astrology compels us to give a standing ovation to Sir Paul Langeveld who predicted in July 2008 the outcome on the TRA forum which is produced below.

Onderwerp: [therealastrology] RE: Obama president 4 November2008 for sure
Now that we have the right time of birth of Obama I made a new investigation about the election and I found that Obama will win without any doubt ! I am sorry that it is impossible to send the charts by which it will be proved, like the 12th Harm. Solar Return, the 4th Harm Lunar Return and finally the 47,25357 Harmonic Age by Yahoo, but anybody who would like to have them has only to send me their Email address and I’ll send them by return.
His Mail To Us
It’s my pleasure to inform you of the method I followed to predict that Obama would win without any doubt. The three charts I made are to be seen in attachments. Especially the Age Harmonic of the 4th November is decisive!
This way of using the AH when we have to do with a corrected Natal is always giving the exact day something indicated by the Stations will actually happen!
It is practically infallible! A great pity is however that in this HA – 8 ruler Sun is in square to both Mars and Uranus, by which there will be a possible attack by gunshot !
P.S: I would be obliged if I could receive your quarterly magazine.
Obama’s Secret Magic Word
The BCP technique was described in the previous issue, though only some percent of it is revealed due to shortage of space. Let’s apply it to Obama’s Chart. The first problem is that many say his birth certificate is wrong and is a spoof to divert attention. Let’s suppose for once that the chart below is wrong data. It was predicted on an Indian forum called Sohamsa: that in the 2nd year, a dramatic event would have happened in his family. Why, since Dragons Tail (Ketu) sits in the 2H of family and as per BCP method 2nd house is 2nd year, they reported back that around the 2nd year there was divorce in family (2H). But you see if we stick to basics of astrology all of us know that Dragons Tail (ketu) means ‘Change’ or ‘Break’. So result would be either in the 2nd year or 3rd year and hence Obama can be either Sagi or Capri Asc. Wherever in your chart Ketu sits there is 100% change in the significations of the house concerned, it won’t be a stagnant house but a dramatic house. Obama’s Mars is in 8H of his chart and Mars means God Hanuman in Indian astrology apart from other things: the President Elect is smart or someone smarter is advising him.
Time Magazine revealed that he carries Hanuman Idol (Hanuman stands for Mars) in his trouser pocket, trouser is 8H and Mars sits in his 8H. Why is he activating this deadly Mars Rahu combo by keeping Hanuman Idol in pocket is it since Mars rules the 4H of Throne and 11H of position in his life and Mars will ‘Bless’ the 5th from it when worshipped? What is this 5th from Mars, it is his 12H (Fruit of Throne) & as per BCP it is 12, 24, 36 or 48th year of his life, incidentally when the elections were done Obama was running the 48th of his year. We shall visit this later.
Now the key is that to be President you need to be a performer and if you have no track record of being a President what you need to do is what politicians do best: ‘Perform in your speeches’. What did Obama say that enthralled the voters? He just said ‘Change’ and he created magic around this word ‘Change’. He said ‘Yes We Can – do the Change & the crowd roared for the Lion. What does Ketu (Dragons Tail) mean–it means Change and it sits in his 2H of speech, did he use the word Change, so is the chart that of Obama? We don’t know but the power of this change (Dragons Tail) must be judged it is exalted in the 9th divisional sitting in the 4H of Throne in the 9th Harmonic Chart (9th harmonic signifies fruits of the chart). He used the word Change and he gets to sit on the Throne.
Dragons Tail in 2H of speech makes you cutting edge in your talks, since that is the nature of Ketu cutting edge & sharp. His speech tone can be attributed to Dragons Tail style of speech. This Ketu is an important tool in birth rectification that most don’t use and some of us are still fixed to the charts that we used to predict before the birth certificate of Obama surfaced, let’s revisit some basics. Dragons Tail (Ketu) is the co-owner of Scorpio which is the 8H of Transformation/Change in the natural Aries Zodiac Asc, his Ketu is exalted in the sign of Scorpio in the 4H of throne in the 9th harmonic & this energy it brings back in the 2H of speech in his natal, being stupendously powerful, Ketu signifies Liberation (Moksha) so when Obama said the word ‘Change’ he created in the minds of his audience that he is going to liberate them from the tyranny of the previous administration & the economic mess.
Astrology does not mean predicting if Obama or a client will win the elections, Astrology means guiding him as to what he must do or say (Change here) to win the Elections & then once elected guiding him to keep his promise (Change) in an honest manner. If we can’t make our political clients or normal clients an honest human being, then let’s throw our astro books and stop calling it a divine science. Lastly apart from many combinations (yogas) that he has, one must be mentioned, 12L in Asc getting debilitated and the debilitation is removed by Saturn (death/misery) as Saturn is in own sign in kendra (Sasa Yoga) and this is called in India as NeechaBhanga, which means due to someone’s misery one will gain. McCain inability & Bush administrations misery coupled with Economic Disaster was Obama’s Gain. Vedic astrologers say where is the combination of King in his chart, Saturn in a quadrant in own sign with a Jupiter is a formidable combination loosely called Famous Man Combination (Mahapurusha yoga), 3rd lord coming to Asc means ‘Man can become author’ if planets are strong, what’s important to understand is the ‘Game of God’, here the game is in order for the combination (Mahapurusha yoga) to get activated he needs to write & publish, 3L of writing Jupiter is in asterism of Sun, Sun means father, Jupiter is also 12L of dreams, Sun in 7H along with 9L of father Mer looks at this Jupiter, well his influential book was called ‘Dreams from My Father’.
Grand Mothers Death: Result Is The King Is Born
Obama is running the 48th year of his life, deducting multiples of 12 the 48th year comes to his 12th house, Jupiter is the ruler, who comes to the Asc (self), 12th lord in Asc means death and hence one must keep quiet as there is no fixed method to determine longevity, though there are many methods of timing death in Indian astrology but they do not work consistently. Now the worry is 12L Jupiter and its degree is 7Cp32, use the calculator provided in download section or multiply 7.32 x 12.166 (365 ÷ 30)= 90 days, add to his birth date and you get 4th Nov 2008 the day of the elections. But you see death like form especially with Tr Rahu in Asc & Tr Sat in Leo in 8H of longevity. So do you predict death? No, you keep quiet though the buzz on forums is he could be assassinated before Election Day. Now interestingly a death did occur in his life around 4th Nov 2008 when his grand mom died. After the event it is easy to justify: 4H is mother, mother’s mother is 4th from 4th i.e. 7H whose lord Moon (also significator of mother figures) is aspected by Tr Saturn by his 10th aspect from Leo carrying energy of death as he is in the 8H of death on his 7L of grandmother, some mother figure is going to go. Tr Saturn is also on his Rahu (who is significator of grandparents), worst is Tr Saturn in Leo at that moment aspected the Letter M (SBC method) sitting in 8H of death and incidentally his grandmothers name was Madelyn Dunham and this M was also aspected by Ketu. Now we in India know that Ketu means Moksha (liberation) Significator that is after death you go home (light workers know this concept) and Obama tells a crowd in North Carolina: “She has gone home” what synchronicity. Tr Jupiter is in his 12H & it will destroy the 6th from it which is the 5H where Moon the 7th lord of grand mom. She should be careful during this period is what you can predict at the most. You notice what Tr Jupiter is doing & also the 48th year lord is additionally Jupiter, mark this. Maybe the 19.24 birth time could still be wrong, we don’t know as it’s easy to justify an event after it has happened ‘I Knew It All Along’ Syndrome.
Obama & Negative Approach of Indian Astrology
One of the reasons most Indian astrologers can reject Obama’s 19.24 time of birth is since it contains a very bad combination the 12th lord in Asc, this from time immemorial has been prescribed as not a combination of successful life as 12th house is losses & Asc is self, so Losses (12H) comes to Self (1H) or death (12H) comes to self faster. There is another way the Mystic Astrologer uses it that must be revealed here, see as 1H signifies ones success & standing on ones feet, so the Mystic Astrologer predicts that ‘When Success has to come to Self, someone will die around him’. For e.g. 7H is house of Public Life & Attaining High Positions in Masses so if you have debilitated south node (Rahu) posited in 7H of grand mom then when grand mother dies one ‘could’ come in prominence, this is what happened in a chart known to us, 1 week before the launch of the 1st issue of this magazine when work pressures was too stressful one of the team members grand-mom expired, he was just reminded that the show must go on as they say in Bollywood and within an hour he was back with us. Within 2 weeks the magazine had created ripples in the Vedic Astro world giving him Limelight (7H) effects. In order to end this with Obama lets quickly take an unknown method of timing. His birth date is 4th Aug & Election day is 4th Nov, so its approximately 91 days from his birth day. Let’s see this carefully on the 90th day from ones birth day how to count which planet will have maximum influence. From birth day first 20 days is ruled by Sun, next 50 days is ruled by Moon (masses) and next 27 days is ruled by Mars. On day of election this Tr Mars of Hanuman that we pinpointed in Vol 2, was in his 10H of KingShip and this Mars is that Hanuman Idol that he keeps in his trouser pocket as per Time Magazine. Some say his fate was decided from day one after Hillary was out and it was sealed in 1-2 months before the D Day, if you notice that would be the period of Moon and his Moon which signifies masses in mundane is exalted in the 5H of Power which he got.
The Power of BCP and our Failures: Most Stunning Prediction Ever
 Using principles of Sage Varahamihira that the house where lord of a particular house is disposited it shows the circumstances as to how the event will unfold in life.
This chart belongs to a friend who is also involved in the design of this magazine; we often go together to Narasimha wadi a pilgrimage place in Maharashtra, India with Madhav Deshmukh & his friend Narhari who is the yogi searcher for us. There at the house of the priest, who is well known to us, we have our meals served traditionally and hence it is loved. Now in the house of this priest another pilgrim had come there from somewhere near Satara whose name evades our memory. When the priest introduced us to this man, he said he is a very good astrologer, but this astrologers attitude was somehow not welcoming and manner of speech was exhibitionist, so our group was not impressed, but he said a few things about aspects of Saturn that can be found only in Kumaraswamiyam, an ancient text, so our ears stood up. He gave his number and said he would contribute articles to the magazine.
Later he met us in the evening and this scribe decided to share the Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi Methodology with him. He was impressed. He said show me a chart, and this is what dashed out.
He said ‘Son, this method is correct if the following prediction comes true, let me know by phone. Now hear ‘In the 36th year (12H) which would be between May 2008 to May 2009 he would get lot of pain in the feet, this man’s communication equipment (note moon in 3H) will get spoiled. Moon’s asterism lord Ven is in the 12H with the 8L of destruction and he will have to shell out huge amount of money (Jupiter’s 5th expansive aspect) coupled with Ven in own house to buy a new one. Either the new equipment would be Red or White in color.’ This is how it exactly happened word by word 3-4 months from the prediction and incidentally he had a red color laptop (Mars aspect) which got damaged completely and was replaced by a white colored Mac Book (the color of Taurus is white as we all know).
He further said that during this year this friend of yours will talk a lot on the phone (12H has Ven who is lord of asterism of Moon which is in the 3H of communications), he will talk to lot of people while walking (Moon is in 3H of travel) and for long time (Moons dispositor sun is exalted) and could be with astrologers (it’s with Mer) and while talking he would be travelling and stand on black ants killing them (12H has Saturn and all of us know that Saturn denotes black ants) By this way he would make Saturn angry and this bad karma will be done by your friend. But our logical brain crept in. How can he travel and stand on black ants at the same time? Now word to word as predicted it happened and incidentally the chart holder either talks on his mobile via headset while driving (travelling) or when in office he always goes outside his office and strolls on the verandah where black ants are roaming around. Few months back when he was facing problems with his boss (9L of Saturn) he asked us for remedy. We immediately reminded him to check if he is stepping on black ants, and he checked–yes he is doing so and killing them every day, hundreds of them, and then we reminded him of the prediction that he had received. Although we can boast that the astrologer had used the BCP method but we ourselves cannot make such a great & mind-blowing prediction. That’s the difference between master and student, in fact we are desperately trying to go again to Narasimha Wadi and ask Mr.Mahesh Pujari (priest) the name of that astrologer so that we can ask him to write for us. By the way he did indicate that native’s feet (12H) will have problems and the native developed corn in his feet & also skin infection around his ankles, this was not predicted in detail but one can notice that 8L of chronic disease Saturn sits there aspected by 6L of disease Mars aspected by 8H Jupiter, healing happened only half as Jup is debilitated & Tr Jup from Sagi did not make a link to the 12H of the 36th year.
Biggest Kept Secret Of Astrology: Prelude to the 4th House
In Indian Astrology some traditions teach you to recite mantras to become good in learning astrology and to become mind blowing in predictions. After 10 years of doing all that one still cannot predict on a 50% correct 50% failure case like that of Obama Vs McCain. After 40 years of reciting mantras one is still at the same crossroads, then one blames it on the data not being accurate. How come we astrologers can charge $350 for rectifying a birth chart to the 60th division of the Asc that is 2 minutes variance level but somehow when it comes to rectifying Obama’s or McCain’s chart from a 24 hour variance level we can’t even fix the Asc. Nobody questions this on forums either due to lack of honesty or due to the fact that humans love to be taken for a ride. Mantras or Sadhanas (austerities) does not make one an astrologer or solve all your problems, otherwise as mentor says, ‘India would never be facing so many problems like poverty, racism etc.’ By reciting mantras we love to get the feeling that we are spiritual beings or doing some great spiritual thing and this goes to the head of most.
Take our case of Saptarishis Astrology Magazine. You approach a yogi known to you with whom thrice you have shown your editorials thinking he is impressed, then you ask him the accurate time of Obama, and he shouts back angrily, ‘Has his father asked you to look at his chart, then why are you looking at his chart (‘Uske Baap Ne Tujhe Pucha Hain Kya Kundali Dekhne Ke Liye, Phir kyu Dekhta hain…. ) haven’t you read the ancient scriptures (shastras)? If not asked should you predict? The scriptures are very clear that curse comes on those who predict without being asked or without the need of a prediction’. Your head hangs in shame, and they think it is fun to meet yogis. At the end of the meeting he says, ‘Your editorial I have read, it does not speak the truth, the full truth I mean, if you can only do PR astrology (public relations) then you are one among the millions of useless students who call the science divine but do not know what divinity is. To get to the divinity of this science for ‘Useful’ predictions you must learn to speak ‘The Full Truth’ and ‘As It is’ without worrying about the consequences. It requires a huge heart (4H) to speak the Truth. (Heart is 4H which is 3rd – of action from the 2nd house of speech). You try to reason with him on how unbiased an editorial should be & not hurt anyone’s sentiments, how to balance the Indian & the Western reader together. He simply replies Your faith in Gods Path is not their son. Didn’t I teach you that the karma (10th) of 2nd house of speech is the 11th house and Saturn is the lord of Aq the natural 11th sign. Didn’t I teach you that Saturn is the planet that makes you a super fine Jyotish and spiritualist? When Saturn strikes, what will you do, son? If you are interested in doing PR astrology then you will only build organizations like most of the others but never learn even the meaning of the word Jyotish. Just by calling your books Saptarishis Astrology (Saptarishis is the 7 holy sages in India/7 arch angels of the west) you gain nothing if you can’t reform the ridiculous state of Indian astrologers. Our astrologers have becomes jokes in the name of astrology. They are not astrologers but mantra & tantra experts in the name of astrology, all of them … I had thought you would make a difference, you are like others, get out of my sight.’
Your breath stops, not a single muscle moves and not even your eyelid such is your state when you hear a retort like this. We kept quiet for some time, thinking that the storm is over we again quietly approach pressurizing him to tell us the correct birth time of Obama so that we could go to the internet forums of world astrologers and indicate (boast) the correct time. He retorts vehemently ……………
Continued in Part 2 of this Issue
 One will observe that Saturn signifies old age and normally it is the old astrologers who are more revered due to their years of experience of profound observation & deep learning – all the qualities of Saturn of Aq. In old age the pot of these astrologers is filled with knowledge and wisdom gained through experience. After the editorial was finished we realized that as of now no one takes Aq as a Mystic Sign and a new controversy would be created as it happened in one of our lectures in Ahmadabad city done last year where we had mentioned Aq as a very important sign for astrology. Then by Gods Grace on 26th Nov 2008 we read words of Late B.V.Raman ‘Aq is known as a mystic sign’; ref Late Prof B V Raman, in Dec 1949 editorial, Page 738, 16th line.
