This special issue has been kept manuscript centric because it is re-dedicated to Late Shri C S Patel. The Grandmaster of Modern Vedic astrology taught to the world few rare principles but what was the most important teaching from him most have missed. It was ‘Keep It Simple & NoInfidelity in Astrology’ – this principle can be used by all the Western Astrology students and also the Vedic Astrology students. Especially during these times of internet & fast communication where all kinds of knowledge is available and one has multiple teachers, this is most essential otherwise as we have observed over the last decade many great minds in astrology go ‘Absolute Waste’. In today’s times of multiple organisations and institutions he just stuck to his room in Mumbai and did not waste time doing Public Relations and as many have told us over the years there has never been a master like Mr Patel. These fans of Mr Patel have been from Denmark to Australia and even from small villages in India. The striking part of Mr Patel was he spear-headed the movement in last 100 years to bring out rare manuscripts containing real knowledge of astrology, he travelled far to collect it, he translated them painstakingly and demonstrated application. After him almost none in India succeeded in bringing out so many rare verses from so many rare manuscripts. His books still remain on the top of the shelf of every astro lover in the world. It is this penchant of his to dig deeper into manuscripts and not be satisfied by available books that we follow and will address more gravely in this issue. Hence this issue of the magazine will not follow regular columns and is a Manuscript Centric Issue so as to inspire everyone to dig deeper into classics, we bring out this time translations of several unknown but most important works.
Each Publitorial of Saptarishis Astrology is designed to be different from other editorials. As a policy it does not venture into mundane astrology & looks upon itself to take the task mentioned in the ‘Last Book Of Astrology’ to ‘Change The Mindsets’ of astrologers worldwide which would in turn would make the Astrology Consciousness to grow and become purified, thereby creating the stage and the automatic need in the Universe to bring out the hidden and working knowledge in astrology. In today’s time of commercialization and shameless self promotion it is more essential for us to raise the consciousness.
The Enigma Of Birth Time Rectification
Let us quickly turn to a world event that happened few months back and a challenge to astrologers worldwide. One must bear in mind that without proper birth time every article on birth time rectification is a product of the authors experience or mind and cannot be taken as a guarantor inspite of the fame or experience of the astrologer. It is the toughest to even rectify & get to the Asc in cases of unknown birth and as complex a life that of Michael Jackson. A new breed of astrologers over the internet fooled for one decade to rectify birth time till the second up to the 60th division asking for $ 250 to $ 500 for it. One way to test an astrologer is no to take the chart of a known person whose birth certificate is crystal clear and give the time of birth as unknown to astrologers. You will find that every astrologer worth his salt will ‘Fit’ all the events into the Asc he chooses and even we are guilty of the same, since birth time rectification is one of the most toughest process. What is more important is being honest and admitting that it is the toughest in getting the Asc right, what say of getting to the exact second, a practice in modern times of fooling young ones. It is Michael Jacksons chart which has given us extreme pain and headaches not because he is a celeb but because he truly was a great entertainer. In recent years, to cause us sleepless nights was a bigger obsession of getting to the chart of Linda Goodman whose date of birth is also unknown, she ensured that you go round and round and don’t get to her, just like Jackson ensured that. Let’s trace his birth time confusion with what some famous astrologers went through.
Richard Gehman gives a time of 7:54 AM CDT “from someone close to Michael.” Grazia Bordoni writes that Mercurio-3 gave 3:00 AM “from him.” Zip Dobyns has 1:30 AM “from a close friend of Michael’s to a fellow astrologer.” Dobyns speculates late Aquarius rising. Kim Baker speculates 12:09 PM in NCGR Newsletter article. Lois Rodden spec-rectifies to 8:47 AM CDT. Basil Fearrington rectifies to 11:53 PM in “Astrology of the Famed,” writing in a footnote of the Introduction that “I had many opportunities to observe Michael but could not get close enough to ask him about his time of birth.” On 12/31/1998, Fearrington emailed the statement that “I had occasion, while playing in the opening act for the very last Jackson tour to ask Michael what his time of birth was. He said “I will tell you as I told Jackie Onassis, all I know is that it was late in the evening, definitely after 10:30 PM.” However, LMR notes that “Astrology of the Famed” was published in 1996 and Jackson’s last tour was in 1984 so there is some question about this. Shortly after Jackson’s death in late June 2009, Steven Stuckey wrote to: “My friend and teacher of 25 years, Vedic astrologer Chakrapani Ullal1, was Michael Jackson’s astrologer in the late ’80’s. Michael gave him a time of birth of 7:33 PM.” In a follow-up e-mail, Stuckey confirmed that Chakrapani received the time from Jackson directly. Edith Hathaway submitted the same time also from Chakrapani Ullal. PT also talked with Chakrapani who confirmed that he received the time directly from Michael. At around the same time Michael Munkasey called citing Ed Healin for 12:09 PM. Ed worked at a record company and did charts as well. When Michael Jackson approached Ed to read his chart, Ed sent Jackson away, saying something like “get the time from your birth certificate.” When Jackson returned, he told Ed that he had been born at 12:09 PM according to his birth certificate. Given that there are numerous reports with different times, many from Jackson himself, PT maintained the DD rating as of July 2009.
We even asked America’s senior most Astrologer and also a writer for Saptarishis Astrology, Shri Chakrapani Ullal in order to double check the time of birth he received from Jackson. His reply to us:
Thank you for your email. Michael Jackson’s birth time is 19:33 and it was personally given by him to me. I was his astrologer from the 80’s, 90’s, and until 2005. I do believe that this birth time is correct because he had the knowledge that the time should be very accurate for the purpose of the reading. He was kind of an enlightened man, he was vegetarian, a meditator, and was a highly humble human being.
The Asc is Taurus with Indian Zodiac with Basil Ferrington’s time of birth Asc and Aquarius with Chakrapani Ullal’s time of birth reference. Gayatri Devi Vasudev the editor of Modern Astrology also took the same time of birth that of Mr Ullal in her September issue with a nice editorial to Jacksons chart. The agony of a serious student of astrology is when he tried several rare methods to double check on what could be the right Asc and finds that both Asc can resonate with events also matching. What does one do in such circumstances; Indian Astrology has a solution to this which is by taking Moon as the Ascendant.
Michael Jackson Chart via Moon as the Ascendant
In India we see charts from natal Asc and moon Asc and to a lesser extent the Sun Asc. Why did the ancients of India take Moon as the Asc even when the time of birth is known is a mystery, various theories abound but classical works fail to impress as to the reason why.
1 You can check his site and contact him for consultations at http://www.vedicastrology.com/
In fact it seems absurd to take Moon as Asc since for nearly 2 days most of the people born will have the same Chart if one takes it from the Moon Asc but still astrologers in India since thousands of years have sworn with their experience that this technique works. One of the reasons to not ignore Moon Asc is not just since it controls the water on earth and humans having maximum % of water hence Moon Asc but the astronomical reason related to astrology is Moon is the only body which ‘Revolves Around Earth’ – this point has not been mentioned earlier in books and craves deeper thinking on it. Imagine if you are sitting in a park in bench and a kid zooms his bike around you continuously, won’t it affect your mind and by affecting one’s mind it would affect ones action which is what we are trying to find out via astrology. This revolution of the Moon around earth (you) makes it necessary to see the chart ‘Also’ from the Moon as the Asc. Also once the native has crossed the age of 32 then it becomes more than necessary to see the chart also from the Moon Asc. In case of people who are emotional or in creative fields one cannot ignore seeing their charts from the Moon Asc. Charts of people who are compassionate (4H matter), clean heart you must see their charts by making Moon as the Asc and this applies more to Michael Jackson.
Interestingly if we take Moon as the Asc then it will match with the time given by MJ to Chakrapani Ullal but we will take it as Moon Asc chart.
It is difficult to explain any chart as to why the person became a celeb without going into Indian astrology but that will be reduced here considering that the Publitorial is read by western astrology astrologers too. Some key points are
- a) The Asc Aq has Moon sitting in it which is the 6th lord of diseases and courts and accusations, his life was marred by these factors all his life. 1H is the house of skull & skin2 and 6L of disease being placed there means some sort of skin disease by which his skin changes frequently just as the moons phases change. He suffered from a skin disease called vitiligo.
- b) Technique of Deciphering Snap Shot Of Life: This technique can be used by western astrology & Indian astrology adepts too and we had explained it briefly in previous editorials. See the number of the sign in the Asc, suppose it is Sagi Asc then the number of the sign is 9, now go to 9H of the chart and their ruler, conjunctions, planets there in and so on and you would get the Snap Shot of Life in a second. In the case of Michael Jackson, his Moon Asc is Aq which is number 11, so we take 11th house of his chart which signifies achievements in life. Its ruler is Jupiter who is in the 9H of fortune & king.3 This 9H contains Jupiter & Rahu both expansive planet and Rahu means international. This 9H is 4th (throne) from Venus (Music) and 3rd (singing) from Mars (3L of singing). Thus he became known as the King Of Pop.
This 9H of father has Rahu, so his father would be the cause of his fortune which was exactly the case, without his father he would not have achieved it. See 9H is also the house of mentor and it is with Dragons head – Rahu (cheating/break of relations) and his mentor Quincy Jones was also the cause of his great albums and the Dragons head thing happened between them. 9H is also the house of religion and over there the planet of religion Jupiter is sitting and Rahu (change) in Indian astrology shows Other Castes and particularly some astrologers use it to denote Muslims. Thus, Michael changed his religion to Islam and towards the end of his life was attracted towards Hinduism. Jupiter is also the significator of Children and Rahu denotes cheating and scandals, this is what happened in his life. 9H is the Resultant House of the 5H of love and children and he was so much in love with children. Dispositors dispositor is a technique that was revealed by Late J N Bhasin and here the dispositor of Jupiter is Venus (women) and it is in the 6H of divorce and legal settlements and loss of money (Venus). This part of the story everyone knows and need not be explained in detail. Thus you can see how this quick Snap Shot Of Life can be seen by a small forgotten technique of Indian Astrology if ones basics are strong which normally takes 40-50 years in astrology to achieve.
- c) Chakrapani’ s Version & Symbology of Western Astrology For a second let us truly believe that Shri Chakrapani was given the wrong time of birth, why would someone go to an astrologer for 20-25 years and give him wrong time of birth plus money to get consultations, it is unfathomable unless you believe in the nickname Wacko Jacko as he was called. For some years we have been studying degrees of the zodiac and the prediction for each individual degree of the zodiac. This deserves a very length explanation but in brief it is presented here to highlight only the superb form of symbology of Western Astrology so that Indians look into it in detail. Inspite of so many Sages of Indian Astrology, so far we do not have in Vedic astrology a book available to people anything from the sages that gives prediction for each individual degree but the sages of western astrology have done a lot of work in this field and due credit must be given to them. Charubel, Sepharial, Firmicus Maternus, Kozminsky, M C Jain and many others have done work on it and thus if one wishes to see Michael Jacksons Asc via degrees one must convert it to Tropical Zodiac and one gets 10° Pisces 07 ‘ which is the 11th Degree of Pisces. The explanation for it given in another work Astrolabium Planum4 given below for 11th degree of Pisces.
After spending two days of trying to find out what is the meaning of the word ftaffe & finding that connection of it in the arm (written as arme in original) in the above paragraph we troubled the never give up woman Lorin Cerina – Croatia, Margaret George U.K and finally John Frawley – Poland, the later is considered the foremost authority on William Lillys work, he wrote back….
just in case you’re not aware of this – the thing that looks like an f is a standard form of printing s in old books, known as the long s. If you look closely, you’ll see that it differs from an f in that the crossbar doesn’t go all the way across the upright, but is on only one side of it. The word is staffe (staff in modern spelling). It’s a big stick, bigger than a walking-stick, but for the same purpose. Hence the connection with vagabond – someone who wanders about all the time.
Best regards, John
It is very important to connect between the words used, connect to the era when it was written in a text and use it symbolically in your interpretation. Due to this factor every astrologers interpretation can vary and give in scope for criticism. What can be one form of interpretation is to imagine if the time of birth given by Chakrapani Ullal is correct and to see its western astrology symbolism. In ancient times it was the chieftan of the tribe or clan or church head who carried a staff like huge stick to symbolize that the person was a man of authority. It was like a statement to those around him about his importance. So the point is you need to not do literal translation but get behind the concept that the 16th century text is trying ‘it is trying to say that staff on the arm was a symbol of authority to stand out from the crowd.
2 Dr K.S.Charak, foremost authority on medical astrology quoted us in a mail citing Uttara Kalamrita as 1H for skin
3 9H of king as per western astrology & also Chandra Kala Nadi, an ancient work.
4 Astrolabium Planum, one of the most intriguing and enigmatic books written during Renaissance by Johannes Angelus, published in 1488 in Augusta. We referred to a translation of Planum which was translated by R. Turner (15 Jan 1655), foreword given by William Lilly, will try to upload it on our site or you can download it from http://heavenastrolabe.net/about-the-stars-of-angelus-astrolabium-planum/ . It is said Johannes Angelus copied it from Ibnezra.
Now interpret it in modern times, you might have noticed that teenagers nowadays wear color bands on their hands to attract attention or to stand out. Now note that the Asc degree describes that the man will have a kind of a staff on his arm and we all remember that Michael Jackson had a band on his right hand and also a white glove on his hand which is 3H and giving a white silvery band on his right hand means giving Moon in the 3H of singing where already Mars is there, which means combining Mars Moon and, Mars Moon combo is a famous wealth combination in Vedic Astrology, it happening in the 3H of singing shows wealth through singing. Did an astrologer guide him on this point and he was known to visit astrologers. When asked why he wore that band he said it is for the suffering of the children of earth, now he has Mars in the 3H and in Indian astrology Mars is ‘Bhumi Putra’ means the child of the earth. He wore band on hand and the 1H of fame got activated. Offhand note sometimes he used a golden band on his arm, thus activating Sun and the famous Sun Mars Yoga.
The main intention of this write up in section is not to prove that the degree of MJ is the correct one as gotten by the 19.33 time but to make the Indian astrologer look and research the texts of the Sages of the West and not ignore them as interpretation of the degrees of the zodiac can be the most important tool in birth time rectification than any other birth time rectification tool.
- d) Moon is the natural 4th lord of the zodiac which shows ones reputation and chastity, hence if the moon is spoilt he becomes prone to the accusations of sexual nature, this is a general rule and also if Moon is spoilt in a chart then ones marriage life is not stable if other factors support, additionally if Moon is spoilt one’s life will not be stable. These general principles are oft ignored by the seasoned astrologers is what has been observed hence it is being repeated here. Now how is this Moon spoilt?
- e) If you remember one of our previous publitorials we had mentioned a Sage Bhrighu rule that Saturn spoils the 4th from where it is placed, the 4th house from Saturn is Asc where Moon the 6L of health, debts and court problems is placed. Saturn as the 12L of bed pleasures scandals and also heavy karma from previous life brings that energy with it and spoils the Moon who governs all the factors of health, debts and court cases. Thus you can see that two planets Moon and Saturn can indicate his full life story.
- f) This Moon in turn is spoilt by the 8th lord of scandals and sexual scandals which in MJs chart from Moon Asc is Mercury aspecting the Moon (courts). Thus he was dragged into court for sexual scandals, why children? Since Mercury is the young prince in Indian Mythology whose age is 16 and thus if you see MJ always was dragged to court by children who were around that age. Mercury being retrograde shows that it is past life karma and it being the 8L of Chronic Bad Karma from the Dark Past (8H is house of darkness) it had to show in front of the world since Mercury is placed in the 7H of Public Platform and 7H being the opposite of the 1H it brings out you in front of the people, it being placed with a own house placed Sun who is strong there and the natural 5L of children of the zodiac and Suns properties is to exhibit light it brought the whole story in limelight and will always spoil his image whether it is true or false.
- g) Jupiter is significator of children and Dragons Head – Rahu significator of Scandals or sexual scandal at times as pointed out in previous publitorials, both these are in 9H and 5th house is for children, now in any chart 5th from Jupiter is also the house of children which in MJs chart would be the 1H of self where the 6th lord of litigation Moon is sitting, no doubt he had to face court on this account of children’s sexual scandal, it being moon can indicate constant regular harassment. A huge interest should arise in astrologers regarding the chart of MJ since if one takes mean nodes the Dragons Head is in 9H whereas with true nodes it shifts to 8H. This controversial topic is not dealt purposely in this Publitorial
- h) Mysterious Death Technique One should not forget a very broad technique for finding out mysterious death will happen or not is ‘When North Node – Rahu associates with 8H or 8L or 3H or 3L it can give mysterious death’, this is one of the techniques and not the only technique. So if true nodes are used then Rahu goes in the 8H of chronic diseases, sexual scandals and death and that is what Rahu gave him. In MJs case Rahu is in the 8H giving mysterious death & Rahu’s 2nd aspect falls on 8th lord Mercury. John F Kennedy had his 8H and 8L both aspected by Rahu. Marilyn Monroe’s 8th L Saturn is aspected by Rahu and so is the 8H, her death was and is still a mystery. Subhas Chandra Bose the Indian freedom fighter who is dead or not has not been decided since last few decades had his 8L aspected by Rahu. Bruce Lee died a mysterious death, his 8L Mer is in the 12H with Moon, Mars and Venus, all 3 are in the asterism (nakshatra) of Rahu and the 8H receives the ½ aspect (10th) of Rahu. Indira Gandhi’s son Sanjay Gandhi has his 8L Sun aspected by Rahu. In chart of Hitler, 2nd aspect of Rahu falls on the 8H, Rahu’s dispositor Mercury is with the 8L, Rahu aspects the 3H and 3L, in D9 Rahu is with the 8L Mercury of D9. One must note that when such a Rahu aspects it can also mean mysterious or chronic diseases death or sudden death or assassination death like in the case of Abraham Lincoln whose North Node –Rahu aspects his 8L Mer and 8H. Rahus 2nd house aspect on 8L Venus in John Lennon’s chart lead to the mysterious uncalled for assassination. For those who use Bhava chalit the dispositor of Rahu has gone into the 8H. One must 208 use this technique not for prediction but for verification as before Lordship and aspect techniques Yoga (specific combinations) for an Event is given prominence in Indian Astrology.
- i) Something Unknown About Saturn – The Philanthropist
What interests one in Indian Astrology is usually Sun is known as significator for charity, and in Indian mythology it is the legendary & greatest donor ever called ‘Karna’ who is regarded as the son of Sun. Also known in the planetary mythology is that Saturn is the son of Sun yet he is given the significatorship of servants and poverty, hence not associated with charity. Hence here is a small controversial piece of observation ‘Saturn is one of the Biggest Givers’, we use the word givers more than donators as when Saturn gives he does not usually show pomp and drama unless afflicted. Note this part about Saturn and also remember that 12H is the house of charity, hence whenever 12H is connected with Saturn or 12L is connected with Saturn one can get tendencies of donating without much pomp and show. Look at the chart of Angelina Jolie, she has Saturn in the 12H and has done lot of charity work5 . Jackson has 12th ruler Saturn in the 10H of Karma and Achievements. Here is a quote6 ‘The MillenniumIssue of the “Guinness Book Of Records” names Michael as the “Pop Star who supports the most charity organizations’’, one can find a more detailed time line of his charity work at jacksonaction.com. Bill Gates Saturn is associated with 12th ruler Venus in 5H. One of the big names in donation is of Andrew Carnegie, his time of birth is given a DD rating by Lois Rodden, yet if we take it for a second, you would see his 12th ruler Mercury is with Saturn in the 1H of self name, as a philanthropist, his gifts to civic organizations were estimated at $350 million7 over his lifetime. One of the team members of Saptarishis Astrology has Saturn in the 12H and in a way lot of giving happens via him. Once we asked mentor what is the most special trait of Saturn in the 12H,
6 http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/113-michael-jackson , http://www.allmichaeljackson.com/charities.html , http://www.jacksonaction.com/?page=charity.htm
he said ‘you have asked a wise question, such a person can at times become such a giver that he can sell himself in giving to others, even take loan and give to others, provided chart combinations (yogas) support it’. Not to forget Rockefeller, John D. Jr. who has a B rating from Lois, his 12L is also Saturn, his father’s the original Philanthropist year of birth is suspect hence not included here as an example.
- j) One interesting thing about his chart is Jupiter conjoined with North Node (Rahu) in the 9H of teacher and father. Apart from this Jupiter rules Children and it is with Rahu the planet of scandals, and it sitting in the 9H of Fate and Fortune, thus his fate was marred by children led scandals. Whenever the divine planet Jupiter is aspected or in trine to North Node in India students are not taught astrology by their teachers, this is a general but golden rule. The reason is such a person will go against the teacher who is signified by Jupiter (Guru) doubly in MJs case as it is placed in the 9H of father and teacher. He publicly spoke against the harsh practices of his father’s training. Now when will this native speak against his father when Jupiter’s periods are active. This part will be understood well by students of Indian astrology by a technique called Vimshottari Dasa and it was during the period of Mer-MerJupiter which ran from Nov 92 to Mar 93 that Jackson first spoke openly about his childhood abuse in an interview with Oprah Winfrey broadcast on February 10, 1993. He said that he had often cried from loneliness and would sometimes vomit when he saw his father.
- k) 9H is also the house of Mentor and it having the planet of cheating/deception the North Node (rahu) there will indicate that his relationship with the man who opened his Prosperity (9H-Bhagya) will not last forever and he would severe his relationship with his mentor Quincy Jones who gave him the success of his albums. Jackson was disappointed by the critical reaction to Bad–despite the album’s financial success—and blamed it on decisions made by Jones during the making, and that he ended their working relationship at the advice of his advisers.
- l) When Will Fortune Rise – this is the biggest question in Vedic astrology for which parents come to vedic astrologer concerned about their child and the toughest to answer. In this regard the BCP method that was revealed last year in the 1st C.S. Patel Memorial Issue (Vol 3) is the easiest and the best. The 9th house is the house of prosperity and rise of prosperity (Bhagya in Indian astrology), over there the benefic planet Jupiter is sitting with North Node – Rahu which shows sudden great rise. 9H as per the BCP method is the 21st year, 10H is 22nd and so on. In his 21st year on 10th Aug 1979, his 1st Album titled ‘Off The Wall’ was released and he became an instant sensation with the track ‘Don’t stop till you get enough’ after which there was no stopping Michael, thus you can see how easy it is with BCP to time ‘Start of Prosperity’. You can further note the degree of Rahu and you would get around to almost the exact date of 10th Aug 1979 when his album was released8.
- m) North Node (Past Life Desires-Rahu) & Jupiter (religion) in the 9H of religion, will make him change his view his views on religion as Rahu means Transformation and Pending Issues too from past life and it is said he changed his religion to Islam and in his later period of life he was attracted to Hinduism it is reported in media.
8 For further details on how to use the degree of Rahu to time the date of the event you can refer to our Vol 4 issue the ‘Thy Notes article’
- n) Dragons Tail – Ketu – This is Where You Can Immortalize Yourself
This was supposed to be a future article in the BSP-Planet series but is being included here. Sage Bhrighu method is ‘wherever Dragons Tail (Ketu) sit there you have the possibility of Installing Your Flag Of =Your Own Name Forever’ – that is of establishing yourself if the other planets in the chart supports. This can help you plan your life and of your clients. Let’s quickly look at few charts without illustrations. Jackson has Ketu in the 3H of singing, hands, and shoulders with the 10L of Career. Apart from his singing his hands and shoulder movement in his dance was too innovative and there he established himself what Elvis could not do. Sylvester Stallone has Dragons Tail – Ketu in the 1H as per western zodiac so he has Established His Name forever, if you take the Indian zodiac then the ketu is in the 12H of abroad and charity in the 8th sign of the dark horse and sex. He started his career as the dark horse and his roles were of the dark horse and his name is established abroad. He started his career with a semi-porn movie. He has done charity work for Pediatric Epilepsy Project9 . Similarly Bollywood star had Ketu in the 1H of self, his name cannot be erased and 1H is personality, ideals and had huge impact to Martin Luther King and Obama. Elizabeth Kübler Ross has Dragons Tail – Ketu in 11H of attainment, it is aspected by the planet of death Saturn, she did revolutionary work on death and dying and Dragons Tail – Ketu being in Sagi, the 9th sign of higher knowledge & Teacher, that’s what she gave a higher knowledge by teaching it to 125,000 students worldwide. Hitler had Dragons Tail – Ketu in the 3H of death (secondary house of death) he put his stamp in the style of death meted out. Elvis had Dragons Tail – Ketu in 9H of Gods aspected by Venus in the 3H of singing; he was considered the God of Rock. Mother Teresa’s time of birth is suspect but if we take the commonly known chart of her, it has Dragons Tail – Ketu in the 12H of Charity in the sign of Sc, chronic diseases, she did charity work for the destitute, sick and homeless, and thus she established her names flag forever and inspired millions. A young astrologer who gave his jyotish software free also has Dragons Tail – Ketu in the 12H of charity and till he was charging for it he was not known but when a mail to him stirred a cord in him, then he gave his software free of charge and has become known now thereby establishing his name. Paramhansa Yogananda has Dragons Tail – Ketu in the 3H of Libra (resultant house of knowledge) and its lord has gone in the 4H of knowledge. 3H is the house of writing and his Autobiography of a Yogi is and will remain an unmatched spiritual classic that everyone picks up in his path to understand Indian Spirituality. Jawaharlal Nehru had Dragons Tail – Ketu in the 6H of fighting with Jupiter the 9L of Rulers. He is known as having fought with the Britishers and helped Gandhi get our freedom. 3H is also the house of servants as per Sage Parasara, Abraham Lincoln had Dragons Tail – Ketu in the 3H he ended slavery in America and established his name forever. 4H is the house of Home Land, Gandhi had Ketu in the 4H of homeland and he freed our land from British Empire and thus established his name. 9H is the house of righteousness (Dharma), higher knowledge, religion and Guru, Lord Krishna has various charts floating around but most scholars agree for Taurus Asc and Ketu in the 9H, he established Righteousness and religion and became Guru of 8 For further details on how to use the degree of Rahu to time the date of the event you can refer to our Vol 4 issue the ‘Thy Notes article’ 9 http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/342-sylvester-stallone T 210 Gurus to Arjuna his student and gave us the great work on righteousness and higher knowledge called Gita. Help direct your clients in how they can establish themselves but please do not forget to warn them that wherever Ketu sits there ‘One Major Mistake’ will happen, there is no 99% in this.
- o) Dial M for Michael
Tere is a secret system not known to Indian Astrologers on using the 9 Planets in correspondence to the starting letter of one’s name. For e.g. names starting with R stands for Moon and so does S for Moon, A is denoted by Sun & M is signified by Saturn and so on. Whenever one sees a chart this method should be used in the backdrop and you should see your clients name and the planet signified by it should be marked in memory while seeing the chart, at a later date will provide a complete article on it. This planet signified by the starting letter will usually be strong or important in the chart, will give you hints about the ‘Life Path Of the Individual’ & if followed well along with support of planets can give ‘Immortality’. Do not ignore this method at all.
Now Michael name starts with the letter M and it stands for Saturn which in Jackson’s case is the Asc lord in the 10H thereby making it doubly strong, is the significator of singing in Jaimini Astrology (being BK) and being the 12th lord in the 10H of career it shows this life is a result of a very deep past life desire to become a star. Also as it is the 12L of bed pleasures and sex life, being placed in the 10H of career he should have been careful not to allow anything on his sexuality to come out in the open. Saturn as the 12H lord of feet and Asc Lord of body, his body and feet movements were characteristic and phenomenal. Quickly see chart of Michael Angelo, M stands for Saturn it is the 3L of hands, painting and sculpting and it is placed in the 7H of Lime-Light, which is what we did in life. Madonna starts with M and her Saturn is placed in the 4H of fortune and chastity in the sign of Scorpio (sex & hidden things, change of religion) aspecting her 10H of Taurus (2H of voice), she used extreme sensuality in her videos to stand out among the crowd of pop singers. SA team’s one volunteers fathers name starts with M and it is the 8L of Aq in the 10H with Mars in Aries (body). 8H is chronic diseases and Aries is body, the gentleman has paralysis of whole body. Paramhansa Yogananda the man who wrote the immortal classic ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ is known as Yogananda and Y stands for Moon, which is in his 1H of Leo (5h of natural zodiac and the house of authorship) and this Moon is the 12L of spirituality placed in the Asc, so he gave the world something new on spirituality never to be forgotten.

- p) Year Of Death Use Progression the BCP way as mentioned in Vol 3 & 4, which is 1H 1st year, 12H is 12th year of life, again rotate it and 12H will be 24th year, 36, 48 and so on. Michael died on June 25 2009 which will be his 51st year. Now 51-48(last cycle of 12) = 3H – ‘Focus House for the Year’. Now see the planets in his 3H, Mars – the significator of diseases, accidents and mysterious death (natural 8th lord of zodiac) and Dragons Tail – Ketu (Ketu) – significator of accidents, untimely death, ghosts, spirits and black magic. All this in the 3H which is the secondary house of Death (8th from 8th house).
Venus sits in the 6H of accidents and shows drug overdose10 and this Ven was in Transit on this 3H along with Tr Mars thereby activating 3H of death, also ‘Simultaneously’ being activated by Rahu in the 10th from it which is the 12H of exit thereby giving him an exit in life. Ketu shows ghosts and it is reported in media that his ghost was cited at numerous occasions.
- q) Moon Walk – With Moon in the Asc and 12L of legs Saturn in the 10H of ‘Trade Mark’ in the watery sign of Scorpio – his Moon Walk became his trade mark and it was as if his feet were of Jelly. How and when will he perform we would look but for those who came in late here is what is Moon walk. The moonwalk or backslide is a dance technique that presents the illusion of the dancer being pulled backwards while attempting to walk forward. A breakdancing move, it became popular around the world after Michael Jackson executed it during a performance of “Billie Jean” on Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever on March 25, 1983. It subsequently became his signature move, and is now one of the best-known dance techniques in the world. Now on March 25th 198311 Michael would be in his 25th year which be 1st house as per BCP Progression of one house per year. 1H is the Asc whose lord Saturn as such signifies the legs and it is placed in the 10H of highest achievement and also 10H of knees, Saturn is also the 12L of legs in the 10H, also ‘where Saturn sits man will come to his knees’ this had been revealed in one of our previous commentaries or better put for this chart there would be a knee jerk. Note the sign where this 25th year Saturn is sitting it is Scorpio, a powerful watery sign, his feet will move like water, akin to gliding on water and so in his 25th year he performed what was termed as a Master Move that won everyone’s heart and you can watch the video http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moonwalk_dance after the moon walk he just did that a knee jerk, bending on his knees.
- r) 8L of sexuality being Mercury who is considered a neuter gender in Indian Astrology, in the initial years the common thought he is neuter gender and has a sexuality problem or has done a sex change.
- s) Mars and Ketu in the 3H of singing gave him the aggressiveness in his voice whilst Moon in his 1H saw to it that he still had the feminine flavor in him and his voice. Moon here made him like a mother to all and made him distribute his money to 39 charities world over.
- t) Mars is the 8L of the natural zodiac of male sexual organ and it is placed in the 3H of hands, his trade mark became his hand catching of the crouch though he was no great looker but still men women idolized him world over with his aggressiveness on screen. The way MJ used his hands (Mars Ketu) and feet (Saturn) no entertainer till date has been able to do so.
- u) Pepsi Ascendant
1H is head and if one fine tunes the 1H represents the area above the face i.e. the skull where the hair is placed, over there in the 1H of hair 6th lord of accidents Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius which is ruled by Saturn so Moon and Saturn are two most important planets, the periods of these two in combo can give accidents to the hair, skull. All Vedic astrologers use a system of timing events called Vimshottari Dasa and on January 27, 1984 Jackson was running Saturn Main Period with Moon Sub Period & Saturn sub-sub period when during the shooting pyrotechnics accidentally set Jackson’s hair on fire.
10 Venus in Indian Mythology shows herbs (Sanjeevani) which revive from death like situation but it going in a bad house like 6H (6,8,12 are termed as bad houses in a chart in Indian astro) will show problems due to drugs (herbs).
11 Somewhere on net it says May 16th 1983 this move was first performed, still it becomes 25th year, our source is wikipedia
He suffered second-degree burns to his scalp. Jackson underwent treatment to hide the scars on his scalp, and he also had his third rhinoplasty shortly thereafter. Saturn is the 12L of hospitalization placed in the sign of Scorpio indicating that it will be chronic. Incidentally in Vedic astrology Saturn is the significator of hair and he was running Saturn-Moon-Saturn. You may note how many times Saturn has repeated in the above periods when accident happened and also we mentioned earlier that Saturn is the Philanthropist, you see Pepsi settled out of court for the accident and Jackson donated his $1.5 million settlement to the Brotman Medical Center in Culver City, California, which now has a “Michael Jackson Burn Center” in honor of his donation. So eventually this Saturn that gave him the accident did make him give back to the society, you can’t sue and take the money home, it is never yours is the common mans saying hence Saturn makes you return that money back to the masses (masses significator is also Saturn).
Asc has Aq ruled by Saturn and Moon in it, the two colors for these planets are blue for Saturn and white for Moon. Michael often wore blue color shirts with white T-shirt in his videos, do you remember the super hit ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ video of his song.
How to Unlock Karma
- v) Now 3H is the house of ‘UnLocking Of the 10H of Karma’ and this aspect is not known, what is 3H it is the house of one’s actions (hands) and the house of free will and it is only with your actions and free will you Unlock your Karma hence the 3H is the house of Unlocking of Karma. So planets in the 3H and 3L can help you Unlock Your Karma and help you achieve Karma for which you are born. This aspect of the 3H is something new for Indian Astrologers but it works. Now see in natural zodiac Mars the 8L of crouch and occult & dark forces is in the 3H with Dragons Tail – Ketu (Ketu) which also signifies Ghosts. This combination fortified the ghost element. It is sitting in the 3H of short walks and travelling and so it is only when he had a short walk with a girl near a crematorium (Ghosts-Ketu) and when he danced with the ghosts his Karma was Unlocked and the whole world sang Thriller. Ketu also signifies ‘Changes’ and if you remember the video of Thriller his face changed to a ghost (Ketu) and that’s what did it for Jackson for his career as Ketu and Mars is in the 1H of Face but unfortunately this kept on happening in his whole life.
Pending Karma or Why You are Born
Indian Astrology claims to be very karma centric and from 10,000 years of history of Indian astrology all students will be told at the start of their astro studies that Indian Astrology helps you see your Karma, to help you move ahead in your cycle of re-births to the next level. But unfortunately one spends 50-70 years in astrology and cannot find a single reliable technique by which the student can see his pending karma or what is that one or many thing pending in his life for which he is born. This form of fooling the students has continued since generations and by the time one is 10 yrs old in Indian Astrology one stops thinking or asking this most vital question.
Now there are many hidden techniques of finding out what is the Pending Karma in the most ancient form of astrology which is Bhrighu Astrology and only one of them is revealed here for the first time. Make no mistake that it is a ‘General Technique’. One should test it on known charts of atleast 20 before venturing further.
The Unknown Pending Karma Technique of Sage Bhrighu
‘Wherever the 6th Lord in a natal chart sits or the Planets in the 6H indicate the Pending Karma of this Life that must be Crossed to go to the Next Cycle of Birth’. This is the Block that must be cleared & wiped out in This Life.
This is the thing that will always Stop your Progress and Haunt you in this life’.
One must use this as a broad technique as this is not the only technique to find out pending karma, use it intelligently combining other tools and from various ascendants various things will be shown. Also if there is a planet in the 6H then see it is lord of which all houses and what it disposits, see the planets basic significations. Even though this technique is simple it can only be used by an expert who is master of houses, planets and house significations – if you are not widely read then don’t use this technique nor judge it – make no mistake about what we have written above.
MJ Chart & Pending Karma
See in his 6H the planet of Music & Entertainment Venus is placed, his pending karma was to sing and entertain. It being in the sign of Cancer it shows that it was very creative as it’s a watery sign. Who does Venus disposit, it disposits the 9H of Father and Mentor, his pending karma was with his father and his Mentor Quincy Jones. At the same time Venus is womenfolk and some of his female friends were very close to him, whom he helped out financially thus his pending karma was towards them. Venus is also Money and Wealth and whatever sits in the 6H one tends to lose or let go. He let go of a lot of money for charities and eventually he got into further debts since 6H is the house of debts. Coming back Venus disposits the 9H where Jupiter (children) and North Node (Rahu-Scandals), his Karma was pending towards these children where he got into scandal and also other world children whom he loved as it was his Pending Karma.
