Know your feelings about Sex
Here we focus on indications of sexual attraction using Astrology as our tool. In this article, we are not discussing long-term compatibility between the sexes--rather, indications of initial sexual attraction and knee-jerk reactions between two people.
Indications of Sexual Attraction:
When somebody's Mars falls in your 5th house, heart-pounding reactions and strong romantic/sexual desires and crushes can be activated. You WANT each other, although the attraction may not last long unless there are other stable aspects and positions in your synastry.
When somebody's Mars falls in your 8th house, that person inspires deep sexual urges and physical desires in you.
A conjunction of someone's Mars to any angle (that is, the Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven-10th cusp, or IC - 4th cusp) in your natal chart will pull out gut reactions and intensity of desire--although the feelings can go either way.
Mars-Sun conjunctions, squares, and oppositions usually inspire a need to make the relationship physical and generate a sort of "buzz" of energy between the two people involved. Trines generate some physical attraction, but of a more pleasant kind.
Venus-Mars conjunctions and squares can inspire quite a bit of fuss and sexual interest, while Venus-Mars sextiles and trines offer a more pleasing, less in-your-face attraction.
Venus-Pluto conjunctions, squares, and oppositions are one of the most potent cross-aspects for sexual and emotional attraction. Although both people are generally attracted to each other, it is the Venus person who is the most enthralled and even obsessed with Pluto—Venus is consumed with the attraction. Ultimately, it is the Pluto person who has the upper hand in terms of whether the relationship is going to endure.
Moon-Mars aspects can generate strong feelings that are often both physical and emotional at once, with the Mars person involved taking most of the initiative in the relationship, which can be very attractive to the Moon person (at least at the outset of the relationship).
Venus-Uranus conjunctions and squares can generate so much interest to the point of enthrallment, and often result in sexual activity between people before they know each other well. This can be a confusing and destabilizing contact in the long term, but these aspects generally inspire initial attraction. When these relationships last, the Uranus person is often seen as inconstant by the Venus person and there can be many ups and downs.
Mars-Pluto conjunctions and squares are often powerful indicators of initial attraction and sexual intrigue. Trines don't necessarily draw people together, but once together, they are some of the most powerfully sexual aspects between two charts.
Ascendant-Ascendant conjunctions, sextiles, and trines, while not as strong as the indicators above, give a pleasing sense of physical harmony.
When someone's 8th house planet or ruler of their 8th house forms a strong aspect with one or more of your planets, you are likely to ignite passion in that person.

Not only does each planet play a role in our personality but as they continue to go through changes, we continue to go through our lives feeling their effects. The effects make up our daily, weekly, monthly and yearly horoscopes, while their placement at birth, determines our identities.The positions they were in during birth and the current positions combined, helps us understand certain feelings and reactions they would have on us. Since each planets position can have positive or negative influences over us, we hopefully have the control to utilize the positive effects and not the negative ones.

Dasha (Time of Star) in the Life
Anand Soni saying-
If the Graha is of a mixed nature, in such Dasha, the results relating to one’s house, or abode and to one’s happiness and money will only be weak. He will have a tendency to live in others’ houses, be respected by the public and learned.
During the Dasha of a Graha, that is in his retrograde motion, one will have prestige and valour and be wealthy. Should the Graha be in a good Rasi, or good Navamsh, avoiding Shatru (6th house) andAayur (8th house)Bhava, one will acquire a kingdom of his own.
Should a Grah be in debilitation, or in inimical Bhavas, at the same time being in its retrograde motion, in such Dasha, one will indulge in bad acts; one will be reviled by his relatives; one will live in foreign countries and one will be dependant upon others.
During a sub-period of Rahu Dasha, when Rahu is placed between (malefic) Grahas, there will be extreme grief for 2 years. Should a sub-period and an inter-sub-period be of two mutually inimical Grahas, one will be deprived of his relations and suffer from diseases.
Even though a Grah by nature be auspicious, it yields only inauspicious results, if it is in the company of Rahu. In the end of such Dasha, one will be exposed to diseases grief and displacement.
In the Dasha of a Grah, that is inimical to Lagna’s lord, or the lord of Chandra Rasi, one will be wandering, banned from his country (or lose his kingdom) and will be insulted by enemies, when seeking their protection.
Even good Grahas will produce malefic results in their Dashas in the event of their occupying inimical, or debilitational Bhavas, or Shatru (6th house) of Vyaya (12th house) Bhava from Lagna. The Grahas, that are placed in inauspicious Bhavas will also give bad results.
If Sukra in in his own Bhava identical withAayur (8th house)Bhava, he makes one sick, should he also join malefics in such condition, at the end of Sukra Dasha, death is caused. Should Lagna’s lord be inAayur (8th house)Bhava, yuti with malefics, he inflicts death in his Antar Dasha.
The Dasha of Randhr’s lord posited in a Kendr will prove auspicious. Should he be, while being so, eclipsed, or yuti with Rahu, according to the wise, death is inflicted upon the native.
Should there be doubts about Lagna’s lord, or a Grah inAayur (8th house)Bhava killing the native, it happens only at the end of the Dasha of the said Grah.
Those, that are in own Rasis, or in exaltation Rasis, if in a Kendr, or in the 11th Bhava to another Grah, they become Karakas, or the latter. The Grah, which occupies the 10th Bhava of the Grah referred to, as latter, it assumes special importance.
If the Karm’s lord is placed in a Kendr, he becomes a signifier of the earlier mentioned Grah. Lords of Karma (10th house)and Bhagya (9th house) Bhava, if posited in a Kendr give good results.
The Karakatwa Grah (as above) makes one a principal person in his caste. In such Dasha without doubt, the native’s desires would be fulfilled.
Should the lord of Chandra Rasi, or Lagna’s lord be in a Kendr along with Guru the native is happy in the middle portion of his life.
In the Dasha of a Grah posited in a malefic’s Navamsh, the native faces hindrance to his education in the boyhood. Should the said Navamsh be of a combust Grah, the said effect is undoubtedly certain.
Should the Grahas commencing from Kuja onward be in their respective exaltation Rasis, or in own Rasis, coinciding with Kendras and be strong, five kinds of Yogas, viz. Ruchaka, Bhadr, Hamsh, Malavya and Shasha Yogas are produced.
If these are considered, not relating to other Yogas, these are capable of giving repeated and full effects to the persons born in superior families.
Those, that are born with these Yogas (i.e. any of the 5 Yogas mentioned above) enjoy wealth on a perennial basis, fame and are illustrious, meritorious and become king of kings. Such men command elephants, horses, various diamonds and a long life.
Those, who have Surya and Chandra weak, while others from Kuja are also weak, do not become kings. They shall only have sons and money.
According to Brahma Sounda, one with superior Yogas lives with happiness and wealth. Adverse combinations will only produce inauspicious effects.
Anything started in the Dasha of a Grah, that has been out of its exaltation (i.e. in fall speak to broadly) will only not mature. The Dasha of the Grah ruling the 6th (or the 8th) counted from the Bhava occupied by Lagna’s lord will cause death, if the said Grah is debilitated.
Should a malefic (untoward) Grah be in Ari, orAayur (8th house)Bhava and not receiving Drishti from Grahas posited in good Bhavas, he brings death by disease, travel etc.
The Grahas Guru, Sukra, Sani, Kuja and Budha their representative characters of elements (i.e. Panch Bhutas) viz. Akash, Jal, Vayu, Tejas and Prithivi in their Dashas through wind, bile and phlegm. Grahas mixed in nature yield mixed results.
Among men, animals and birds the lustre of the body, indicating both inauspicious and auspicious effects and the good qualities of the inner mind, the brilliant qualities etc. can be seen by the learned, as the flame of a lamp kept in crustal vessel.
Prithivi’s lustre gives teeth, skin nail and hair, adds fragrance, satisfaction, money, gain and upward status and makes one virtuous.
Jal is glossy, white (like camphor), green (like grass), pleasing to the eyes and indicates amiable nature and qualities, comforts, growth, protects, like mother, and indicates all-round prosperity.
Tejas is disposed to anger, is, like lotus, gold and burning fire, shining, capable of conferring success and fulfilling of all desires.
Vayu is non-white i.e. black, cloudy, of bad smell, is secretive, dusty, rough and capable of causing grief. It causes sufferance, gives no wealth and destroys one’s parental properties.
One born under the influence of Akash, can know the words and meanings and study those deeply. He is conscientious and respected, has loose joints, weak hands and legs and the nature of sky. He is tall in stature.
The effects produced by weak Grahas are only pipe dreams. The effects of Panch Maha Purush Yogas, if the Grahas are weak, should be deduced similarly.
Only after estimating one’s physical appearance, caste, qualities etc., the results should be declared according to family, country, age etc. in the order of the Dashas concerned.

Vedic Celender by Vedic Astrology
Anand Soni Saying-
Vedic Jyotish is one of the most authentic ways to gain an insight into a person’s personality, history and future. Unlike other mystic sciences Vedic Jyotish is based on scientific principles and does not work on intuition alone. One of the most important tools in Vedic Jyotish is the Panchang or the Vedic Calendar.
The Panchang can be calculated mathematically, however if you set out to do it yourself you will have to go through a long learning curve, and then spend a lot of time calculating it each time you need to refer to it. Luckily Panchang can be bought from the market in form of a calendar, a reference book and is part of most good astrology software. That’s why you can easily access a Panchang whenever you want without lengthy calculation. The Panchang helps you quickly ascertain the positive and negative attributes of a day as per Vedic Jyotish principles.
Calculated as per Vedic Jyotish guidelines, the Panchang lists a variety of factors and their values. Each factor in a Panchang reflects a different facet of life and you can predict fairly accurately from these factors. Literally, the word Panchang means five parts, or five organs. However today the normal Panchang contains many more than five factors. According to traditional Vedic Jyotish the Panchang has the following elements.
Elements of Panchang: -
1.Vaar (Days of the week)
2.Nakshatra (Constellations/Group of stars)
3.Tithi (Lunar Date)
4.Karan (Half of the part of the Tithi)
5.Yoga (an auspicious moment)
Tithi (Lunar Date)
In Panchang, this is understood to be the one part of the sixteen stages of the Moon according to the Vedic Jyotish. Each Tithi lasts for approximately one day and signify the lunar cycle. The Tithis range from 1 to 15 (In 15 day cycles). The first Tithi of the first cycle of the Panchang starts at Amavasya (The last day of the dark half of a lunar month when the Moon is not visible) and the last Tithi is the Purnima (Full moon night). This cycle is called the Shukla Paksha (Brighter stage). The second cycle starts from Purnima and ends at Amavasya. This cycle is called Krishna Paksha (Darker phase) in Vedic Jyotish. The Tithi is a very important factor in the Panchang.
The different Tithis are named as follows.
In the second cycle of Tithis in the Panchang (The Krishna-Paksha cycle) beginning from Pratipada till Chaturdashi, all the dates are equal; the only difference is that instead of ending on Purnima, the cycle ends on Amavasya in the Panchang.
The following mentioned days are not considered good, in Vedic Jyotish as per the Panchang. There is a chance of difficulties, and not problems in completing the required work. Panchang classifies the inauspicious days as below.
Here's how to decipher what days will be unlucky as per the Panchang. For example if the 12 th Tithi happens to be a Sunday, the results will be unlucky. Similarly if the 8 th Day is Wednesday (Hutashan Tithi) the results are bad according to Vedic Jyotish Panchang system.
Nakshatra (Stellar Constellation)
The Nakshatra is a group of stars (constellation) as per Vedic Jyotish. Similar to the units used or applied for calculating the distance is kilometers or miles the distances in space (Akash Mandal) are calculated in terms of Nakshatra in Panchang. The whole zodiac has been divided into twenty-seven parts and each part derives its name from a Nakshatra.
The twenty-seven Nakshatras are as follows: -
12. UTTAR PHALGUNI
The Indian astrologers as per Panchang, think that the combination of the last fifteen Ghati (a unit of time as per Vedic Jyotish roughly equivalent to 24 minute) of ‘Uttrashadha Nakshara’ and four from the starting Ghati of the Shravani Nakshatra i.e 19 Ghati in all, constitute the ‘Abhijeet Nakshatra’ and this specific Nakshatra is considered to be auspicious to start a good according to the Vedic Jyotish.
The following group of five Nakshatras are considered to have five defects (Panchaka Dosha) from the Panchang point of view. They are Revati, Shatabhisha, Dhanishta, Uttrabhadrapada, Purvabhadrapada.
The Moola Nakshatras are considered inauspicious according to Panchang. If the child takes birth in the Mool, Magha, Ashwani, Jyestha, Ashalesha ,Revati Nakshatras the results are believed to be quite inauspicious. However most Panchang Calendars also suggest remedies for this situation. Some particular traditions are performed twenty-seven days after the birth when the similar Nakshatra comes again or returns according to Panchang. Out of these six Nakshatras, Jyestha and Moola are called ‘Gandant Moola’ and Ashlesha is called as ‘Sarpa Moola’.
To start any work, this Nakshatra is considered as inauspicious in Vedic Jyotish and it is generally not advised to start new work if your shows this Nakshatra for the day. The following Nakshatras are Dagdha when they occur on the dates given below: -
Yoga (Planetary Combinations)
The total number of Yogas is twenty-seven according to the Panchang. They are as follows:
Karana is half part of the Tithi (date) in Vedic Jyotish. There are two Karanas in one Tithi. The total number of Karanas is 11. They are: -
As per Panchang, Karanas first to seven are termed moveable (Chara) i.e. this can not be fixed in advance related to which dates, these are going to take place, but the last four Karanas are unchanging (Sthira), so can be determined beforehand according to the Vedic Jyotish.
Vishtikarana is differently called ‘ Bhadra’ and starting any work in this period is not allowed as per Panchang, Bhadra is underlined very plainly in every Panchang of the Vedic Jyotish.
The total number of days is seven in the Panchang too. The days are Sunday (Ravi-vaar), Monday (Som-vaar), Tuesday (Mangal-vaar), Wednesday (Budha-vaar), Thursday (Brishapati-Vaar), Friday (Shukra-vaar) and Saturday (Shani-vaar). The Panchang names each day on the basis of the planet that rules over it. The first day is Sun (Ravi) Vaar, and the last day is Saturn (Shani) Vaar.
One day in Vedic Jyotish, begins from Sunrise and ends at the Sunrise of the next day. ‘AHORATRA’, which is a combination of day-night. The day is divided into ‘Horas’ and like western Hours, the Horas are 24 in number.
Sun is the Lord of the first hora in the Panchang. When the creation started, the Sun was quite visible, it has been considered as the Lord of the first Hora and also the first starting day has
Friday, Thursday, Wednesday, and Monday are considered as the ‘gentle’ days in Panchang. These are the signs of good beginning to do any work in Vedic Jyotish
Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday are considered as bad day for operation according to Panchang. For education point of view, Thursday is considered good in Panchang. And for business point of view Wednesday is considered good and auspicious in Vedic Jyotish

Dear Akash Soni,
Its really intersting analysis. Can you explain the results of Saturn Mahadasha in Virgo Ascendant(Kanya Lagna) when Saturn is debilitated and placed in the 8th house of natal Chart(lagna kundli) and in 9th house in chalit chart.
Thanks in advance.

i dont understand why & when are uranus/neptune etc are included into vedic ?
u dont need them
simple observation tells you why..
look at any chart and positions of uranus/neptune/pluto
usually house in which neptune is said to be placed is already occupied/viewed/owned/(sublord) is an intutive planet(sat/jup/mer) or there will be enuf combnations suggesting that
also same for uranus
if uranus occupies a house, already venus/moon/jup etc planets are influencing that house to give same effects
thats why they're not considered
