What is Adhik Masa or Extra Month of Hindu Calendar? When is it in 2010?

"Adhik Masa" is a word of Sanskrit origin which literally means Extra month. Adhik Masa is also known as Purushottam Masa, Mal Masa, and Malimmacha etc. Adhik Masa has started today i.e. April 15, 2010 and will end on May 14, 2010 as per English calendar. Because the extra month this year is Vaishakh as per Hindu Calendar, this extra month is known as Adhik Vaishakh Masa or Adhik Vaishak Mahina. So in current year there will be thirteen months in Hindu calendar. Apart from the normal 12 months, there is an additional month i.e. Adhik Vaishakh Masa.

Acharya Ram Hari Sharma has written a detailed article on "Rituals & Significance of Adhik Maas" on Astrology Magazine, and I am quoting from the article -
“Generally all efforts with the intention of worldly gains are strictly prohibited during Adhika masa as mentioned in scripture and one is advised to follow special rituals for this month. During this period, marriages, tonsures (mundan), inaugurations of new home, fasting with desire of some worldy gains, buying new ornaments and vehicles are prohibited.

The month that does not carry Surya Sankranti is called Adhimass and the month carrying two Sankrantis is called Kshayamass. As per Astrological calculations, Adhimass comes after 32 months, 16 days and 4 ghatis and Kshayamaas first arrives after 141 years and then after 19 years.”

Elizabeth Taylor's ninth marriage and astrology

Readership Level: Intermediate

According to news sources, Hollywood legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor is to marry for the ninth time at the ripe old age of 78. Taylor has been married eight times earlier. Her last marriage ended after five years in 1996.

I wanted to discuss this chart because it is unique in its respect. Nine marriages are not common at all and hence it gives us a very good case study for multiple marriages.

In Indian astrology, there are several yogas given for multiple marriages and I am not going to talk about it. There are so many classical texts and so many shlokas in Indian astrology that confuses astrology students. I want to give some very common rules which I always found correct.

Rule 1. 7th lord should be well posited in a sign. Exaltation makes the most powerful multiple marriage yoga
Rule 2. 7th lord should be in dual sign. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are the dual signs.
Rule 3. There should be malefic influence, primarily of Mars and Saturn, on 7th house and 7th house lord.

Under the light of these rules, now let us check the birth chart of Elizabeth Taylor.

Elizabeth Taylor's birth details are as follows -
Date of Birth: February 27, 1932
Time of Birth: 2:15 AM
Place of Birth: London, UK

Birth details are taken from AstroDataBank and this chart is having A ratings. If the passes our rules we can safely say that the birth particulars are correct.

Rule 1. Taurus is falling in 7th house. Venus is lord of Taurus and hence it is 7th house lord. Venus is exalted in Pisces, so the rule 1 is fulfilled. As we know from the above rule, 7th lord must be very strong sign-wise to give multiple marriage.
Rule 2. Venus is in Pisces, a dual sign, so the rule 2 is also satisfied. As we know dual signs give multiple marriages.
Rule 3. 7th lord Venus is aspected by natual malefic Saturn and with another natual malefic Rahu. 7th house is aspected by Mars. So the rule 3 is also satisfied. Malefic influence is there both on 7th house and 7th house lord.

So we can safely say that the birth details are absolutely correct as far as rasi chart is concerned. You can see that Elizabeth Taylor's birth chart is an excellent chart for multiple marriage case study.

Will she really marry ninth time? What are the combinations in her chart that make her legendary actress? What else do you see in chart? If you are an astrology student, please share your thoughts in terms of comments.
