    Folks seem to be posting BCs here and I have seen such hybrid diplays on AD forum too. Pretty, but do not give adequate details or relevant info for jyotishis.

    Second Opinions...! ??

    Websites seem to be increasingly receiving requests for second opinions! It is a curious phenomenon!

    Sade Sati - A digression of paths...!

    ... "To a certain extent, the definition of pareidolia can be used to describe how the ancients connected the dots and came up with the patterns we know as constellations. It does not take a great deal of imagination to see a lion in Leo, a scorpion in Scorpius, or a mighty hunter in Orion...

    The Karaka CODE...? (Hopefully simpler than DaVinci's...??

    Dear Jyotishis, In jyotish, whether we sing praises to Parashara or Jaimini or several others, sooner rather than later we run into the Karakas: Natural (naisargika), Fixed (sthira) and movable (chara). The former have generally been used by astrologers a lot, the middle one not so much, the...

    SUNRISE Charts as predictive tools...?

    Looking through my (very old) notes, as I do from time to time, there was a mention noted from back in early 70s based on a tip shared by an older astrologer about some esoteric technique used by him of general predictive value of sunrise charts.
