Saturn leaves Leo, enters Virgo & Sade Sati Report

Today on 9th September, Saturn will leave Leo sign (Simha Rashi) around 12:00 midnight IST and will enter in Virgo sign (Kanya Rashi). Saturn is a slowest moving planet among nine planets and hence its sign change is considered important from astrological perspective. Change of sign will have impact both on individuals as well as on nations. Leo is a sign of Sun which was unfriendly to Saturn and hence some astrologers believed that disturbances and recession in past two years were due to Saturn's presence in Leo. Now Saturn is entering into Virgo which is owned by Mercury who is friendly to Saturn and hence astrologers are expecting a better time ahead.

Saturn is called Shani in Sanskrit and is the most fearsome planets in astrology. Saturn also causes Sade Sati (seven and half year period) which people believe inauspicious and fear a lot. Saturn entering in Virgo also means that people having Cancer moon sign will not be under influence of Shani Sade Sati (seven and half year period of Saturn) now onwards. On the other side, Shani Sade Sati will start for the people having Libra (Tula) as Moon sign. So with Saturn being in Virgo, people having Leo, Virgo and Libra will be under influence of Sade Sati.

Truly speaking, there is nothing to fear about Shani Sade Sati and I have written a detailed article about Shani Sade Sati. Please read to understand and know more about Shani Sade Sati.

Finally the most important point for which I am writing this article - we are tomorrow announcing Sade Sati report on So please visit for a detailed Sade Sati report for the whole life. I am also hoping that the same report will also be availble on in Hindi language

YSR Reddy Missing - Dead or Alive?

According to news sources Mr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, popularly known as YSR & chief minister of Andhra Pradesh state, is missing since around 9:12 AM this morning. Search operations are going on. According to Times of India online edition, "From remote sensing satellites, fighter jets, UAVs, troops on the ground to barefoot deer-hunting tribals with bows and arrows- a mission of huge magnitude was underway on Wednesday night to trace YSR Reddy's missing helicopter." Everyone in India is asking the same question - what happened to YSR? Is YSR dead or alive?

As I don't have birth chart of YSR, natal astrology will not be of much of the use. In absence of birth details, horary astrology seemed the only resort. Horary astrology (Prashna Jyotish in Sanskrit) is a branch of astrology which is useful when birth details are not available. Some astrologers claim that horary is more accurate than the natal (birth chart) astrology.

So around 5PM today, I decided to cast horary chart to get the answer. Here are the query details for the horary chart -

Query: YSR dead or Alive?
Date of query: September 2nd, 2009
Time of query: 5:01 PM
Place of query: Agra, UP, India
Longitude: 78:00E
Latitude: 27:09N
Horary Number: 215

The detailed horary chart can be found here. Here is my analysis of the horary chart -

First house is house of overall well being. 8th house is the house of longevity. If these houses are connected with maraka (death giving) and badhaka (obstructing) houses, death is indicated.

In the present chart, ascendant sub lord is Saturn in 7th house. 2nd house and 7th house are called Maraka houses in Vedic astrology and presence of Saturn in 7th makes it Maraka. Saturn owns 12th and the 1st house. 12th house is the house of departure from this world & house of moksha etc., and indicates death if connected with maraka and badhaka houses. Saturn is in Nakshatra of Sun who is lord of 7th house and also posited in 7th house. So Saturn is a very strong Maraka planet.

Now see 8th house. 8th house sub lord is Venus. Venus is lord of 4th and 9th house and is situated in 6th house. According to Vedic astrology, for fixed ascendant, 9th house is the Badhaka house. Sixth house is the house of wound and diseases and generally gives indication of problem to the body. Venus is in the Nakshatra of Saturn and we have already talked about the fact that Saturn is a strong maraka planet.

Now let us analyze present dasa. Current maha dasa is of Moon who is lord of 6th house (disease/ wounds) and posited in 12th (departure from the world). Sub-period (bhukti) is of Venus and we have already talked about maraka and badhaka connections of Venus.

So to conclude, the chart doesn't present any good picture and chances of his survival looks bleak as per my analysis. I wish my analysis goes wrong. Quite a few of my fellow astrologers have predicted otherwise and I wish their predictions come out true. You can also read some of those analysis in the KP Astrology Discussion forum.

Note: This article is based on KP method of Horary astrology. KP Horary astrology uses an arbitrary number between 1 to 249 for calculating house positions and the above chart has been calculated using horary number 215.
