Its the End of the Mayan Calendar!

 I had my radio on . The talk of the News is that the nation of Syria launched some SCUD missiles into its own country.Yesterday North Korea launched some ballistic missiles into the Air. Threats everywhere. The events in Syria is potentially serious, maybe I haven't realized .Once I was browsing through a book about nuclear threats and Armageddon.In that book the author said that the closest the world was to World war lll, was when Israel bombed a nuclear reactor in Syria,because retaliation could have possibly involved Russia and the Chinese..but it didn't happen I guess because the Syrian's didn't retaliate. I'm sure he said Syria, not Iran, because if I recall the Israelis did bomb a nuclear reactor in Iran.They bombed one in Syria too?

Yesterday, I talked a guy would was managing a thrift shop.The shop was closing down  and he was selling some broken down musical stuff. Though I knew the shop was just moving down the street, but it seemed kinda ominous as the guy on his store did mention about the Mayan Calendar.

Its the End of the Mayan Calendar in 12 -21-2012. The Big day. The End of the Mayan Long count, what does it mean? To the Mayans it was a event, it represented a end of an epoch, it could mean something happens in Earth history to bring it about.

There have been many such predictions in History, but this is a big one. The Shop owner told me that N.A.S.A was showing a flyby of a asteroid that is supposedly passing close to Earth.

Anyway no one thinks about how the end might come...I hope there is no end for us, at least in a billion years,but who knows? Perhaps it could be World War.

Albert Einstein was once quoted, " I don't know how they will fight World War lll, but I know how they will fight World War lV,with sticks and stones."

A Day late and a dollar short; of Valentines Day.

Below.. This is the chart of poster on a website of astrology who has given me permission to use these and her chart.

I like using Progressed Composites especially for relationship of two people. There easier to read than doing a Comparison of two charts, to try to determine whats going on in a relationship. Comparisons...that's really "Gods Work." Though sometimes I find myself looking at comparisons to look at the dynamics of what is going on in the charts of two people.

A Composite chart is when you take two or more chart of people, you compare A's Mars, to B's Mars, then using the two position you take the "midpoint" of the two positions and thats where your composite Mars is. You do this with as many points in the chart as you want , then you have a composite chart.

I like progressions alot, especially since I discovered you can map or graph progressions since they represent real time in an ephemeris ( table of planetary astrological positions). For me the best way to do a relationship chart at present is to progress the chart then do a composite of the two charts. Doing a progression for the moment in question is sort of like bring the chart to present time.

Below "K's" present marriage looks grim with the current progressed Venus conjunct Saturn. In Robert Hand's (famous astrologer) book "Planets in transits" he called that aspect "The beginning or end of a relationship". I wonder if that is true in this relationship? Is the a relationship thats "on the rocks?" But later in this chart, maybe things get more interesting, and though it is in present difficulty..maybe its worth staying together.

The Sabian symbol for the Ascendant of the Progressed Composite Above is "[b]An Unsealed letter has Vital and Confidential information"[/b], Could this be an indication of impending divorce papers...If its not divorce papers then, What is this "The unwritten letter?."

BelowThis is a progressed composite chart of "K" and her friend. She may be interested in a new relationship with this fellow. Things look darkest just before the dawn as they say. This new relationship might offer a promise. Is it a bit of a gamble though, maybe "K's" thinking "The grass is greener on the other side of the fence". Such gambles rarely pan out...though especially with a budding T-square like Jupiter opposite Neptune square Uranus in your Progressed Composite chart.Similar combination of Jupiter/Neptune/Uranus, sometimes have to do with Gambling or even alcoholism.

This is a notable case because human nature maybe be calling me a liar, a dreamer,right ;D! The divorce proceedings may are already underway, and all that will be left of your marriage might be a photo of you husband on the desktop as you reminisce through the past of your relationship. But it seems to me the relationship with your hubby might have more promise ,than running off with the "devil you don't know.

Or it could it be "K's: destiny to stay with her husband, maybe she has this "karma" of having to stay with things to there conclusion, finishing things you start might be difficult with that Mars Conjunct Uranus in your natal Chart. Mars in Cancer in the Natal chart of "K's" tends to be defensive, Mars conjunct Uranus tends to be incendiary..only because the native ( and I also have Mars in Cancer in the Tropical Zodiac) tends to be so emotional.

Taking a Break

Perhaps I'm being hasty in closing this Blog.

Its great having followers and I'd thank the 2 people who have been following this blog. I will probably regret closing this astrology blog, Astrology is one of the things I know something about, I dont know if Astrology is a marketable skill these days, but there are many fine people who practice astrology.

Maybe I'll see ya later....

I'm a Manglik, you're a Manglik., everyone's a Manglik.

A Manglik is a term used in Indian (Vedic) astrology , meaning one who has "Mangal-dosha",or "Kuja-Dosha". It translates to "Mars affliction to Marriage". I use the word Kuja-Dosha, or Mangal dosha to describe one who has Mars (planet) affliction to marriage. If you have this Kuja-dosha or Mangal-dosha, one is called a Manglik.

So what's Manglik Dosha/Kuja-Dosha? Its when in the Vedic (India)horoscope of a man and woman in marriage, one or both couples has a peculiar and strong Mars in the chart. Its said in Vedic astrology that if one of the couples has "Kuja-dosha" then this is bad for the marriage and could result in the break-up of the marriage, in extreme cases it could result in the death of one of the partners!

"Mangal Dosha or Kuja= mind and body Dosha is an astrological combination that occurs if Mars is in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house of the Vedic astrology Ascendant chart. A person born in the presence of this condition is termed a manglik.

This condition is astrologically believed to be devastating for marriage, causing discomfort and tension in relationship, leading to separation and divorce, and in some cases, it is believed to cause untimely death of one spouse. This is attributed to the "fiery" nature of this planet. However, if a manglik person is born on Tuesday, the negative effects of Kuja Dosha gets cancelled by itself. Also, if two mangliks marry, the negative effects are believed to cancel each other out. However, Mars is not the only planet in Vedic Astrology that is supposed to affect the relationship and these effects should be seen in a broader perspective of overall astrological compatibility.

There is also a belief that the negative consequences for a single-manglik marriage can be resolved if the manglik first performs a ceremony called a kumbh vivah, in which the manglik "marries" a banana tree, a peepal tree, or a silver or golden idol (Murti) of the Hindu God Vishnu...... Some believe that one Manglik should only marry another Manglik, the idea being that two negatives cancel each other out, creating a positive.

Although there are "Poojas" that can be performed to allow Manglik and Non-Manglik to marry each other. There are also some astrological remedies (Upayas) which can be used to resolve this Dosha.
." From Wiki-pedia

"When Kuja (Mars) is posited in a horoscope in the houses 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th from the Ascendant, it is called ‘Kuja dosha or Mangalik (ill effect of Mars). In the horoscope, the 2nd house represents family and happiness of the native. 4th house represents childhood and the psychology developed out of the influences at childhood. 7th house represents marriage and partner. 8th house represents the maangalya (welfare) of the spouse. 12th house represents bed comforts. So, when natural malefic Mars is posited in these houses, we can expect some disharmony in the affairs of these houses which leads to dissatisfaction in the married life and finally separation of the couple.

"Mars represents irritation, anger and impulsive nature. Mars is so dynamic that he makes the person get into actions without thinking adequately. When anger predominates, we cannot think properly. Hence the decisions and actions taken will be generally wrong when Mars is active.

Kuja dosha leads to separation of the couple. Here separation may be due to one of the couple going abroad and staying there for a longer period. Separation can also represent the ill health of one of the couple because of which they cannot enjoy the conjugal bliss. Sometimes Kuja dosha indicates death of the partner also.

Kuja dosha should be reckoned from the Ascendant in the Rasi chart. Also, this dosha should be confirmed from the Navamsa chart since the ‘Navamsa’ represents the general wellbeing of the spouse. Some texts say that we should count Kuja dosha from the Moon and Venus also. If this is the case, there will not be any person without Kuja dosha.

In Vedic Astrology, several texts mentioned various exceptions for Kuja dosha. For example, 1) Kuja dosha does not exist when Mars is conjunct Jupiter or Moon. 2) No dosha for the Ascendants owned by Sun, Moon, Mars and Jupiter. 3) No dosha if Mars is in Leo or Aquarius. 4) No dosha if Mars is in the 2nd house which is Gemini or Virgo. 5) No dosha if Mars is in 4th house, if it is owned by Mars (i.e, Aries or Scorpio) 6) No dosha in the 7th if it is Cancer or Capricorn. 7) No dosha in the 8th, if it is owned by Jupiter (i.e, Sagittarius or Pisces). 8) No dosha if Mars is in 12th house, if it is Taurus or Libra. In this way the list will grow. But, in our experience, these exceptions are found to be invalid. If we take these exceptions into account, then Kuja dosha will not exist in any horoscope. These many exceptions are mentioned, probably to facilitate marriages in the society."

Possibly for Western Astrologers, a way at looking at Mars affliction in Marriage, is just looking for a strong angular Mars in a chart. Vedic astrology, doesn't often include the outer planets ,planets like Uranus,Neptune,Pluto. Occassionally when looking at a chart of a person you might see a Mars conjoined with one of the outer planets..maybe it even sits near an angle, so you know thats going to be a strong Mars.

Afterall, as one Vedic astrologer once told me, what your really looking for (like in Kuja-Dosha) is like an index of Social/Psycho-pathic tendandies. Mars on the angles is a good indication that one does have a higher predilection for anti-social qualities. Occassionally a person will have Mars in their Natal horoscope tied up with an outer planet like Pluto. That increases Mars' power in a chart and make for strong socialpathic/psychpathic tendancies...for an added Bonanza these two planets might be placed in a sign like Scorpio, which Mars and Pluto rule. Then you Know that this person has some anti-social qualites, and depending which house Mars might be in ..or not, this person reqires careful handling at least in a marriage.
Like the Vedics would say, marrying a person like this, the partner would need to have s strong him/herself in order to deal with the partners anti-social qualities,

A prosititute might have strong social-pathic qualities and a strong Mars, maybe she marries a Police officer,whom might inherrently have strong anti-social qualities. This is a case where one Manglik marries another Manglik...perhaps it works out for the best. But as the vedics say if a person who is Manglik marries another , who is not Manglik could resu;lt in the break-up of the marriage or in exterme cases The death of one of the partners!

Occassionally, I see the charts of person with Mars conjunct (together with) Saturn and Pluto. Pluto increases the power of Mars, Saturn might detract from Mars a bit.

With all three together you have a powerful combination. If a person had this combination on an angle of their chart, would you say there Manglik? Sometimes not, but for instance famous Uranian astrologer Reinhold Ebertin calls Mars/Saturn contacts in a chart a "death axis" its sometimes related to instances of death in person that have them. If you add Pluto to the mix then it add a bit of finality to it in some cases.

Mars/Saturn/Pluto combination in individual charts could sometimes spell out "responsibility of power", or "the reponsible use of power". A malefic combination of planets like Mars/Saturn/Pluto you could see in "Royalty", as the recent marriage Prince William and Duchess Catherine both have this combination in there charts. Perhaps they are inherently "Manglik" as well...though Catherine might be moreso in difficulty at this time.

The Vedics say that two Mangliks marry it cancels out the effects of Kuja-Dosha, lets hope this is the case in the example of Prince William and /Catherine's progressed charts.

Exploding in the Southern sky soon?

"One of the brightest stars in the Milky Way, Eta Carinae lies about 7,500 light-years (ly) away from Sol. This possible binary system is located in the eastern part (10:45:3.59-59:41:4.26, ICRS 2000.0) of Constellation Carina, the Ship's Keel. It can be found northwest of Lamda Centauri, southwest of Pi Centauri, southwest of Mu Velorum, northeast of Theta Carinae, and southeast of Scutulam (Iota Carinae), Avior (Epsilon Carinae), and Canopus (Alpha Carinae)

According to Robert Burnham, Jr. (1931-93), Eta Carinae was first recorded by Sir Edmond Halley (1656-1742) as a 4th magnitude star in 1677. However, it has changed greatly in brightness ever since, reaching 2nd magnitude in 1730 then repeatedly falling and rising in brightness (more on historical variations since 1827). In 1843, Eta Carinae had a "Great Eruption," when it brightened to outshine every star in Earth's night sky except for Sirius, reaching a maximum magnitude of -0.8 and was one of the most luminous stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. Despite releasing as much visible light as a supernova explosion, the star survived. As shown in the top image, that explosion produced two polar lobes and a large thin equatorial disk, all moving outward at about 1.5 million miles (2.4 million km) per hour." From a Website

Not only that , Scientist think that the star in this Nebula lases in ultraviolet. In other words this star is an ultraviolet laser, an interesting phenomena to see, but not directly and not pointed at you, since that phenomena would be much like experiencing the "Death Star" in "Star Wars"

Each lobe of that Nebula is as big or bigger than our whole solar system. Scientist think that this star may Nova , sometime in the next 100 million may already be exploding.

This star is also called "Foramen" in astrology. So maybe you have a planet , point or the Sun in your horoscope conjunct "Eta Carinae". Perhaps it is in "Paran" with a point in your horoscope, sort of meaning that this star sort of has a relationship with points in your horoscope, . Find out about these by getting a "Fixed Star" Astrology report, or a many paged conventional astrology report (conjunction to 340 Fixed stars) from this Blog site.

Astrologically, Eta Carinae (Foramen).....

"Of the nature of Saturn and Jupiter. It causes peril, dignity, piety, usefulness and acquisitiveness, and gives danger to the eyes. [Robson*, p.167.]
With Sun: Danger of shipwreck. [Robson*, p.167.]"
Constellation of Words.

Of course if this Star lases in ultraviolet, and you were close to it, it wouldn't be so great for your eyes. It would burn them out.

Eta Carinae may even have Biblical reference.....

"The Eta Carinae Nebula (NGC3372) is a bright cloud in our galaxy the Milky Way, and the dark cloud in front of part of the Eta Carina Nebula is the Keyhole Nebula (NGC3324), which is next to the star Eta Carinae, a supermassive star that could one day become a giant supernova. The Keyhole Nebula, its name reminds me of the "Keys of hell and of death" in Revelation 1:18. And Eta Carinae could explode as a giant Supernova and it could then be very bright, by far the brightest star in the sky, as seen from earth. But more likely it may become just a very bright star again, and its brightening is a sign of hope, that hope for the world will come from the Southern Hemisphere over the next ten years, while the Northern Hemisphere sees major problems. It could be a new Star of Bethlehem, possibly becoming the brightest star in the sky by year 2015. Note that it is too far South to be seen in most of the Northern Hemisphere. Its brightening may represent the positive effects of the Southern Cross effect spreading across the earth from the Southern Hemisphere. " from a website.

Is it a natural laser also?

"As if its huffing and puffing behavior weren't weird enough, Eta Carina also appears to be a Death Star powerful enough to make Darth Vader turn in his light saber. Sveneric Johansson, a specialist in atomic spectroscopy at the University of Lund in Sweden, has proposed that Eta Carinae also is acting as a massive ultraviolet laser.

Johansson, using Hubble observations made with the Goddard High-Resolution Spectrograph, reported in 1996 that his interpretation is not yet proven, but that it appears to be the most plausible explanation of the data.

A laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) creates an intense coherent beam of light when atoms or molecules in a gas, liquid or solid medium, force an incoming mix of wavelengths (or colors) of light to work in phase, or, at the same wavelength. Laser light is analogous to a loud, single-pitch note, while normal white light is analogous to audio static on a radio.

Below: An artist's concept of multiple laser beams pouring from the heart of Eta Carinae. Links to 750x600-pixel, 59KB JPG. Credit: James Gitlin, Space Telescope Science Institute.

Johansson's explanation is not that far-fetched. Natural masers (the microwave version of a laser) have been seen in space since the mid-1960s, and an infrared laser was discovered around the hot young star MWC 349, earlier this year.

"Each ultraviolet light particle (photon) generated in the Eta Carinae laser has almost 700 times the energy of a photon in MWC 349, and so the total energy output is far greater," said Davidson. "Natural infrared lasers are very rare in space; this ultraviolet laser is even more difficult for nature to arrange, and nothing like it has been seen before."

In a Hubble Space Telescope investigation led by Davidson, including nine other collaborators in the U.S. and Sweden, ultraviolet light from the same gas is being closely studied. Johansson was particularly interested in emission by iron ions that seemed unnaturally bright in the new data. He has found the only plausible explanation of the relative brightness of the iron emission lines is a natural laser emitting at energetic ultraviolet light.

"The spectrum of singly-ionized iron (an iron atom with one electron removed) has almost a thousand known energy states and some of these are apparently well-suited to making a laser effect," said Davidson."
