Astrology - A New Scientific Version

Is Astrology a pseudo-science as many learned people ask me these days? Many of the people whom I meet ask me this question as one who has been researching on this subject for the last five decades and more. My answer to this question is an emphatic ‘Yes’ looking at the way it is being practiced these days by professionals. It is not an empirical science though it is interpreted based on calculations based on empirical formula and logical axioms passed on to us from time immemorial by the ancient sages who perhaps were even capable of time travel. I must say it is a divine science the logic of which though not rationale sometimes are very accurate and can be used as an excellent road sign in our journey through life. After reading through my articles on this blog you can place yourselves in the scheme of God's plans by comparing your strengths of houses based on your birth details with that of others including certain celebrities  and some of the divinities incarnated as human beings. You can consider Astrology similar to Road signs which gives you advance information of possible dangers ahead. Is is up to you to take suitable actions like postpone the journey or carefully continue with caution. You can never remove the possibility of impending danger and then proceed. Is it not? If you are interested to know about yourselves, contact me on after reading this article in full.

To start with, let me tell you that Astrology is not a predictive science and you cannot predict your future using astrology. If anybody tells you so, you must immediately discount his knowledge to be a very superficial one. God has created us in his own image and He resides within each of us to carry out His assignments intended to be done using our body and soul. Astrology can only give you a blueprint of your life and prediction of individual incidents is only done by fake astrologers. At best astrology can only be used to evaluate our horoscope based on your date, time and place of birth. Each one of us has different definitions about the qualities of life like Health, Wealth, Happiness, Education,  a Good career, Marital bliss, Luck etc. We are all unique in our creations and no two living beings are identical in nature or spirit. The fact that you were born indicate that you have to neutralize some of the bad karma you had done in earlier lives(using your Free will) and therefore life will be a mixture of Good and Bad and none can expect a life of continued happiness throughout your tenure in this world.  If you can digest the above, then read on. 

As per Sydney Sheldon, Our destinies are decided by a cosmic roll of the dice, the winds of the stars, the vagrant breezes of fortune that blow from the windmills of the Gods. We are not sure what will happen tomorrow and what is going to happen to us in the future. Logic has no place in deciding these factors.

I have recently found out that those who have a poor horoscope based on the place of birth can be altered if they change place of residence to a minimum of 10 degree latitude and 20 degrees of longitude (plus or minus) which of course has to be determined by trial and error. This has come after researches being carried out in the last 7 years.

For all that it matters no science is perfect. Medical science on which we depend a lot is constantly changing and what was being prescribed for a given disease 10 years before is no more used and some of them are even banned by the FDA. Researches show that what we thought was good for a disease is no more truer and new medicines take its place. Cancer was thought to be incurable once upon a time and today we need not be unduly worried about it, there are cures and treatments available or at least relief is available to alleviate the sufferings of a cancerous patient. All these indicate that science is developing and is contributing to the well-being of everyone.

So is Astrology. Today with the advent of computers and internet, Astrology is slowly becoming a developing science. Till 1970, to prepare a full horoscope of a native, it used to take as much as 80 man hours by an Astrologer and today we can do it in just about 4 seconds using a computer. And that too with all the axioms available in Astrological text books fully incorporated and the strengths and weaknesses of the all the planets and their effect on human life born on a given date, given time at a given place. The fundamental principle of Astrology is that there will be no two births at the same date and time at a given longitude and latitude.

Divisional Charts being used by traditional astrologers are no more relevant and there is no need to waste time studying the above since we take the longitudes of the Ascendant and planets as the base for all calculations.

Earlier astrologers had to depend on their knowledge, memory of thousands of axioms pertaining to varying planetary positions of a horoscope to try to interpret a horoscope which many a times could go wrong due to non-availability of mathematical units of strengths of planets and houses. Predictions were mainly done depending on the mood of the astrologer and what he could recollect from the relevant axioms pertaining to different combinations of planetary positions at birth. If one goes to an astrologer, he used to give different predictions at different times and the public had lost credibility in the astrologer’s predictions. To be a good astrologer, he should be a very good mathematician and should hold a  minimum of a post graduate degree in Mathematical or allied sciences.

Today the accuracy in the calculations are guaranteed with the help of computers and most of the results are available in absolute values. The computer gives the same strengths of planets and houses whenever the same data is fed into the computers using astrological software. So the mathematical calculations always yielded the same results for a given horoscope irrespective of the moods of the astrologer. What has this brought about? The mathematical part of a horoscope is always correct and your logical understandings or evaluations of these figures only matter in attempting predictions.

In short Astrology has today become just like a company’s balance sheet as is being analyzed by a Chartered accountant. The figures in the Balance sheet gives the reader an idea about the company’s assets and liabilities and the profit they make product wise period wise and can well compare the health of the company with reference to the health of other peer companies operating in a similar way. So if you can trust a Chartered Accountant, you could also trust an Astrologer today. Not that all Chartered Accountants can be trusted.

Now let us see how a Horoscope compares to a Balance Sheet of a company. The Assets and Liabilities part in a Horoscope is the Strength of Planets (There are nine of them) determined by the Shadbalas of Planets and Bhavabalas duly moderated for malefic/benefic natures of the planets and their inter-intra relationships and the residential strength of the planets in the respective houses. There is a minimum strength required for each house or bhava for satisfactory performance which can be graded in percentages. A pass mark will be say 30%. Generally the strength of the planets will be in a 15% to 100% range since no planet can have a 100% strength in a human horoscope. Similarly the lowest strength of a planet will never be less than 15%. Like there will be none with no happiness at all. Even a good for nothing fellow will have some times in his life when he will be happy and cheerful. Is it not?

There is an school of thought that human body consists of three layers the innermost one of them is God himself and around him an astral body enclosed in the physical form of flesh and blood. God works as an operating system like Windows or Linux and looks after that nothing goes wrong and it is He who keeps the body fit and regenerative and protects  us from diseases. The astral layer provides the reflexes and protects you from impending dangers and directs us as per the desire of God and to protect us all He provides you half your life time when you are either in sleep or daydreaming during which time you will be happy oblivious of what is happening around. It is when you are awake and doing your Karma that you feel the miseries of life which drives us to deviate from the God ordered path using your  Free Will and astrology is provided as a blue print of your Karma to warn us beforehand about possible problems we will have to face in the forward march of our life.

The twelve Houses of the Horoscope

The twelve houses of the horoscope which represents 12 different groups of characteristics of life like for example the 7th house represents marital bliss, the 4th house represents mental happiness 10th house that of Career/Profession etc. is what Astrology is all about and the potency of each of the houses could be determined in a mathematical unit in percentages. Normally each house should have a minimum of 30% strength for a pass mark and again the range will be from 15 to 100 percentage and sometimes even higher in certain few cases of aberrations in the horoscope. These strengths will be indicative of how good or bad the houses are and their signification thereof. All these will give you an idea of how successful or otherwise will be the native with respect to the matters connected with the house.

Similar to periodical Reports in Accounts (quarterly reports, half yearly reports and Annual reports of Profit and loss etc.),  a span of 120 years of human life is divided into nine main periods, each period overlooked by a Planet. Each period is further subdivided to 9 sub periods and so on till the time taken by a human for each breath in his life. The combined effect of the strength of the period lord and sub period lord, sub sub periods etc. will give you a clue as to how that particular period/sub period/sub sub period will be, whether good or bad and the net strength thereof which can be fruitfully used to initiate appropriate ventures which are likely to turn good or otherwise.

Thus you will see that the horoscope if prepared accurately and with the help of strengths of planets and houses and their nature, a human being can be forewarned about the future just like road signs help the motorist in their journey.

I am giving below a sample of a new mathematical way of evaluating a horoscope very similar to the Mark Sheets we receive from Board of Examinations or a University on completion of a course.

"Marks Scored%" is the Average Marks scored for the significations of the house, "Public view" is the Marks given by Public and "Lowest Mark" is the lowest Mark possible below which it will not go in the entire period of Life.

12 Wasteful Expenditure, Losses, Feet, Spirituality 29.07 44.61 25.89

Net strength 34.47 52.90 30.70

Higher strength for positive significations makes it more potent

Higher strength for negative significations negate the negatives (Debts, Diseases, Enemies, Losses etc.)

The third column titled “Marks Scored %” is the mean strength of the houses based on one’s own assessment of himself or his success factor of the significations of the houses as an average for the entire period of life. But others may view him differently since we always wear a mask and do not expose ourselves fully in front of others. The fourth column titled “Public View" shows this strength as is understood by others viewing him which normally is an inflated figure and on rare occasions it will be a deflated figure when the individual is an open personality who exposes himself with all humbleness to others and is not a pretender.

For those necessary, transitory influence of planets are also provided which I have given in detail in one of my later article "How to evaluate a Horoscope - Technical Details".

At this juncture, I would like to emphasize that  having a good net strength for a horoscope does not indicate that he will be proportionately rich and fabulous in life with possession of a large amount of wealth in the form of properties or bank balance. I have found many fabulously  rich people have only a moderate or below moderate strengths for their horoscope. This is because they are/were not happy in their life due to various reasons despite having a lot of money. The net strength therefore indicates one's measure of happiness in life which need not necessarily be connected only with having lot of wealth or assets. Happiness comes only with a proper mix of health, wealth, marital life, happiness from children, having no enemies, a good career and a bit of spiritual knowledge etc. In this materialistic world, we have a tendency to associate happiness with money which is totally wrong. There are many kings and presidents of countries who had a poor strength for their horoscope and though they held high power and esteem from others had a very unhappy life of their own with no happiness from other basic qualities in life.

The net strength here in this example quoted above means that this native will be happy 34.47% of his life and the rest of the time, he wouldn’t be that happy. Or you can say that the overall success factor of his life would be to the extent of 34.47% which would fluctuate from 30.70%(Lowest Marks) to 38%.

What each house signifies is given below :

The first House: (The house of Self), The ascendant, Lagna.
This is the most important house in the chart and plays an important role right throughout the life of an individual. It represents the physical stature, complexion, form and shape of an individual, the health, vigour, vitality and natural tendencies, personality, jest for life, honour, dignity, well being, upper part of the face, longevity and start in life.

The second House: (The house of wealth)
All money matters are governed by this house. Fortune, profits and gains, power and resources, security, material achievements , jewellery, shares, Security, speech, eyes, vision, stocks and bonds, precious stones, memory, Primary Education, tongue, nose teeth, chin and family are signified by this house. This is also a maraka sthana or a death inflicting house.

The third House: (The house of courage and siblings)
The mental intellect and disposition is governed by this house. Courage and the ability to achieve things and complete the tasks, Relationships with brothers and sisters, assistance or otherwise from them, Relations with neighbours, valour, short travels, communications and transport, correspondence, writing, change of residence, contracts, agreements, rumours, hands, throat, shoulder blade, collar bones, arms and nervous system are some other things that this house gives information about.

The fourth House: (Mother’s house and Mental Happiness)
Mother, native place, residence, domestic environment, secret life, luxury, vehicles, fields, pastures, farms, orchards, mines, buildings, houses, ancestral property, hidden treasure, Higher education, wells, water, milk, ponds, lakes etc. are signified by this house.

The fifth house: (The house of progeny, romance and competition)
Progeny, whether one will have children or not, inclination, recreation, pleasure, artistic talents, entertainment and amusement, sports, excelling in competitive activities likes crosswords, cards, games of chance, gambling or betting, love affairs, ambassadors, good or bad morals, mantra, tantra, religious mindedness, high learning and wisdom, enormous riches, spiritual practices etc. are indicated by this house.

The sixth house: (The house of indebtedness, enemy and diseases)
Diseases which restrict our freedom of movement, indebtedness to others, nursing, food, services, employees, sub ordinates or servants, debts, cattle, tenants, jealousy, enemies, maternal uncles, mental anguish are represented by this house. This is one of the Dusthanas(Bad Houses) indicative of bad things in life.

The Seventh House: (The house of marriage and partnerships)
Earthly ties and unions, legal bondage, spouse, partners in business, conjugal life, litigation, influence in foreign countries, success and reputation in foreign travels, dangers in life, Relationship with spouse, gains or losses after marriage, type of spouse and his or her physical and mental disposition are all looked into by studying this house.

The eighth House : (The house of Distress and Death)
Longevity and span of life, inheritance, legacy, wills, insurance, gratuity, accidents, fire, suicide, misery, misfortune, sorrow, strife, worries, disgrace, delay, dejection, disappointment, loss, obstruction, theft and robbery etc. are all signified by this house. This is another Dusthana connected with distress or death.

The ninth House: (The house of Luck, Fate and Fortune):
What this house signifies are Luck, Faith, wisdom, divine worship, pilgrimages, philosophy, fortune, religious disposition, meditation, intuition, sacrifices and charity, father, Teacher or Guru, learning and teaching, dreams and visions, long journeys, air and sea travel, higher education overseas, Thighs.

The tenth House: (The house of Career/Profession)
Honour, dignity, public esteem, power and prestige, credit and recognition received for a task completed, success and status, rank and renown, respect and fame, ambition, authority, Job satisfaction, promotion, advancement in Job, appointments, Government, political power, honour from Government and Knees are indicated by this house.

The eleventh house: (The house of casual incomes and gains)
Friends, society, community, favourites, ambitions and wish fulfillment, gain of wealth, success in undertakings, incoming wealth, prosperity, elder brothers, recovery from illness, dawn of fortune, ankles are the significations of the 11th house.

The twelfth house: (The house of expenses and Losses)
Losses and impediments, restraint and limitation, waste and extravagance, expenses whether good or bad, deception, investments and donations, charity, misery and misfortune, sorrow and sin, secret enemies, involvement in scandals, disgrace and insults, secret sorrows. Success through occult affairs, the feet, left eye, left ear, bed pleasures, life and activities in foreign places and finally Salvation(Moksha) are signified. This is also a Dusthana.

Our success factor in each of the 12 houses and its significations can well be ascertained using the strength table. For example in the above horoscope the career house, the 10th house has a strength of 39.49% which means his job satisfaction will be low to the tune of around 39.49% only and the returns he gets from his career represented by the 11th house would be equivalent to 29.11% which you can call his success factor(Gains). In this case he happens to be a government servant.

The best example you can find is in corrupt politicians who generally have a weaker horoscope of less than 50% if he has to succeed in this era of Kaliyuga. They hide from the public what they really are and can well be found out by looking at their net strength as opposed to their usually high Aaroodha strength (Marks given by Public). I am not suggesting all politicians are bad, but most of them have a very poor horoscope and they little hesitate to hoodwink the public for their own welfare.

The Dasa (Period) and Antardasas (Sub Periods) can also be evaluated thus based on the planetary strengths which will be more meaningful to comprehend.

Another area where these mathematical analysis of horoscopes can help is in the Human Resources, Personnel Departments of Organizations to establish compatibility of horoscopes between any two or more individuals where they work for a common goal. Needless to say these can be used for finding out the compatibility of partners involved in any venture. Marriage is an ideal example of a partnership between two individuals. Isn’t so?

Net Strength 67.51 84.88 81.88 127.47 82.64

Match Grading based on Net Strength:

Less than 75 - Unsatisfactory or below average
75 - 80 - Satisfactory
80 - 85 - Good
85 - 90 - Very Good
90 - 95 - Excellent
95-100 - Outstanding

The Male to Female compatibility and Female to Male Compatibility and the overall compatibility of 82.64% indicate that the horoscopes match with a 'Good' grading.

In  case of compatibility reports, a minimum of 75% is considered necessary for successful partnerships. 80 to 85 match can be considered Good, 86 to 90 can be Very Good, 90 to 95 Excellent and above 95% as outstanding.

These days when the incidence of divorces and break in marriages are on the increase, the horoscope matching gains importance and I would say that the horoscope matching is very essential in all partnership ventures. From my past research, I have found that only 15% of Love Marriages survive and the rest are unhappy and they somehow put up with it or end in separation. In arranged marriages with proper horoscope matching done, most survive fairly happily. For this purpose accurate time of birth is essential. Erroneous time of birth details make horoscope matching unreliable.

A whole new look at the above will definitely achieve better usage of Astrology in our daily life reducing unwanted tensions and mental agony enlightening oneself in spiritual studies rather than getting mired into the materialistic realm of the present days.

The main advantage of this unique system of evaluation of horoscope using strength percentages(Marks Scored) is that it could be used in all school of thoughts in Astrology including the Sayana system used in the Western world. The variations in strength will be only to the extent of a few decimal places. 

And using Astrological calculations it is possible to identify the best day  and the worst day between any two given dates, months or years as you wish. But it takes quite a lot of time in front of the computers without loss of concentration which tires the astrologer's mind. The definition of Best and Worst is individualistic depending on his moods, temperaments, outlook etc. Tables like the ones given below help such calculations. You can attribute the nature and extent of Periods and sub periods using the following table. This assumes that we are awake in mind only for 12 hours of a day i.e 50% of a day. The rest of the time we are either sleeping soundly or our mind is at rest possibly day dreaming. In other words everyone will be happy during their sleepy state of  mind. The mentally alert time is affected by the percentages as shown in this particular sample example. Take care there are times when planets are lifeless and that is why the figures of Good% and Bad% do not sum up to 100%. During such interval you will have a impartial state of mind.

Astrology is a divine science as is Medical science. Both should not be used to make money since none can guarantee success in both the professions to anyone since results are totally dependent on one’s own fate or destiny. However it is believed that these sciences will come to fruition only if the recipient reciprocates the consultant with a Dakshina or donation depending upon one’s own abilities in any form either in kind or in cash as is mentioned in Vedas which should not be demanded either in quality or quantity by the Consultants. Unfortunately none gives free consultation these days?

Benefic means the planet is capable of doing Good to the native based on its residential strength. The higher the strength is, the better it is(greater than 40%). If the strength is lower, it becomes less effective and a single digit strength means it is ineffective despite being good.

Malefic means the planet has a tendency to do Bad to the native. If it has high residential strength, it will behave as your boss who is very strict and intolerable and will reward you only if you do a good job.

Weak Malefic are planets who do not have a good residential strength(Less than 40%) and it has always the tendency to do bad despite you doing good things. The lesser the strength the worse it is. It is like an inimical boss who is not satisfied with whatever you do. Generally we keep clear off them not to get involved in his anger.

Any planet in Lifeless (Nirjeeva) mode will not contribute anything during its period of influences based on its strength given above and then your Free-Will will decide matters. Planets when in lifeless state is like a Debit Card with no money in the bank to your credit. The lower the lifeless values, the better it is for positive contribution to one’s life.

Most of the planets in this sample horoscope except Sun and Saturn  are in lifeless state and are hardly likely to contribute much to the well being of the horoscope.

The general rules to evaluate a planet and its ruling period/sub periods are given below.

1.  Benefic planets are always good proportionate to its residential strength.

2.  Malefic planets with good residential strength brings down  the bad effects in proportion to the strength and they are marked in dark Red in the above table like Saturn and Moon.

3.  Weak malefic planets are always bad and can give one a lot of problems. Jupiter, Venus and Rahu are such planets in this horoscope.

Mars, Kethu and Mercury are though benefic will not be capable of giving good results due to their rather poor residential strengths. The best planet in the horoscope is the Sun which is highly benefic with its good residential strength and low lifeless state. Refer the above table and you will understand it.

Explanation of Benefic and Malefic planets with a simple example:

Suppose a child is trying to learn to ride a bicycle. Somebody has to help him. A strong benefic will help him by holding on to the bicycle and run along with the bicycle till the child learns how to balance himself well and be independent. A weak benefic will initiate him well but he will leave his closeness to the bicycle as he moves along and only when the child falls if by chance he will go to him and set him right and reinitialize his ride.

Similarly a strong malefic will initiate him like a weak benefic and then let the child ride until he falls and make him learn the hard way. If the rider is injured in a fall, of course he will run up to him and help him out. He is a strict boss and he will teach you the hard way. He wants you to learn and the child has to understand well the difficulties and that he will fall down if he is a bit careless. His intentions are good though imparted in a hard way with rigorous supervision.

A Weak Malefic will allow the child to learn his own way. He will just explain to him the procedures, but will not help him much. If he falls down in the ride, he will shout at him to get up and ride again giving only little help.

Sometimes a weak malefic can be so cruel that he will put a spoke in front of the bicycle to puncture it and make the child fall. And sure he will ask the boy to take it to a puncture repairer and make him walk all the way along with the punctured tire which literally means he will be carrying the whole bicycle over his head. This happens when a planet is a malefic with less than 20% strength.

Aaroodha strength(Marks Given by Public) is around 30% higher than the Self Realised strength (Average Marks) which shows that other people see him with a highly inflated status of his real self. More details can be had at

And his Lowest Mark(the absolute minimum below which the strength will never go due to transitory influences of planets) is about 3% lower than his Self Realised strength and therefore there will be only minor fluctuations in his experiences in life from 40.5% to 47% of net strength.

His horoscope can be rated as “Just Above Average” grading with a net strength of 43.73%. Also look at the Frequency Distribution and you will get an idea to rate how good each of his houses are and the net percentile strength is around 68%. In other words, 68% of people in the world have a lower strength than him and 32% of people having a strength higher than that of him.

To get some comparisons with other horoscopes and to get a better insight into the strengths of houses, one must read all my articles on  where in I have evaluated horoscopes of many celebrities. What all things are signified by each house is also given in detail there.

The current period of Mercury starting with 2007 onward is good though only with a strength of 24.55% and this will last till 2024. Thereafter till 2031 he has a good Kethu period with only a feeble strength of 3.52%. The period of Venus then may not be that good with a poor residential strength of only 31.18% and a malefic too. The Sun period which follows from 2051 is very good with 70.95% strength.

The sub periods of Mercury, the current period is given below.

The 3 rules of evaluations given earlier must be carefully kept in mind to get a good idea of how individual periods and sub periods are like.

The respective strengths and nature of the planets can be assigned to the above sub periods to get an idea of how the sub periods of Kethu main period will be.

In general this is a just above average horoscope. During the sub periods of the malefic planets, one must be careful in matters signified by those planets details of which are there in my blog.
