Understanding Mars in Libra and Venus in Scorpio in December, 2015 in Vedic Astrology

Mars has moved to Libra recently and Venus has moved to Scorpio where it has joined Saturn.
The curious aspect of this transit in Vedic astrology is, that Libra is owned by Venus while Scorpio is owned by Mars, making this an exchange of signs, also called Parivartana Yoga.
Parivartana also means change apart from exchange in astrological parlance. The thing with change is that it occurs within a reference frame of the status-quo. In fact it is this departure from what exists that defines change.
What exists?
Venus has moved to Scorpio (Vrishchika Rashi) and is conjoined Saturn. Scorpio is an intense sign and Venus placed here has deep roots in sensual experience and transformation. The easier, more sociable facets of the planet Venus are not predisposed to manifestation in Scorpio.
Scorpio is owned by Mars and Ketu, the South Node of the Moon. We should contemplate the fact that the signs of Venus and Mars are opposite to each other in the zodiac and that which is opposite, opposes; this is mildly tautological as well but drives home the point.
Also, in glossier parlance women are from Venus while men are from Mars. But in less glossy parlance they are not similar to East which is the East and the West which is the West and never are the twain supposed to meet. Despite the oppositional tendencies of Mars and Venus they are designed to meet, predisposed to meet; in fact much of life is dedicated to the anticipation of this meeting and quite a lot of it in dealing with the aftermath of this meeting.
Saturn in Scorpio is in any case making people dig deep to come up with answers to unresolved matters and secrets and that which lies within. Venus in Scorpio, surrounded by mysterious, super-rational energy is constrained by the structure of Saturn and compelled to reflect and find answers and solutions to matters of beauty, love, romance, marriage and intimate partnerships, apart from what these determinants may stand for in horoscopes, when viewed from varying standpoints.
Mars in Libra is the soldier who finds himself flummoxed in the fashion mall. He looks around trying to find the discipline and logic in things, in the transactions of the market place and amuses himself till the irritation starts to rise. He starts to look for the bunched power in the forearm which went missing in the prettiness that surrounds and the business which is going on. Nothing appears to be forthright. People seems to be only interacting and doing business rather than getting down to the rough and dirty and resolving disputes like proper men. Where are the disputes to start with. He refuses to make way for the person walking towards him and firms up the shoulder, looking for trouble.
Mars looks to Scorpio wistfully where he can retire and with the invisible heat of Ketu make an inventory of the artillery and the casualties in the last war. Venus looks to Libra where it can have a cup of coffee at the fast food outlet and talk its metrosexual talk, which is actually to pave the way for that deal which is in the pipeline.
Mars and Venus wonder why they ever agreed to switch places- they dislike where they are and things are not what they should be. Anger and indignation. They want to go back to their own domains.
We need to recognize the difference in planetary energies, especially when they are oppositional. The relations between Mars and Venus are never easy and yet they attract each other. In Vedic astrology, direct association of Mars and Venus is never considered easy, even when they are conjoined. Keep the aesthetics and the anger under close watch, as to their expectations from each other. Within themselves, both are fine; absolutely fantastic and imperative.
We can use the transit to fortify our financial position as Venus aspects Taurus with planetary aspect. Similarly, our initiative and ambition can continue to be a top priority as Mars aspects from Libra. Mars is quite willing to put in excellent work to this end, as it aspects Capricorn, the epitome of hands-on work.
Nothing can prevent boys from being boys in this transit and right from facial features to financial credentials, there will be many points of attraction. Yet, a balance must be maintained because both Mars and Venus will finally behave as if they were always in their own houses and the brouhaha will end up being an accusation by one party against the other.

These are general themes and will have their say in accordance with the destiny of each but we would do well to recognize the energies.

Power and Criminality From the Vedic Astrology Horoscope

Power in the Vedic horoscope-
From the Vedic astrology horoscope, just like all other things in life, proclivities to great power, and sometimes unanticipated power, can be seen.
The Rāśi Chakra is extracted below for immediate reference.  

Rashi Chart-

Exalted Sun-
Just at first glance we can see that it is not an ordinary horoscope. Exalted Sun (Surya) is in the Lagna in Aries (Mesha). Sun indicates royalty and political power and authority.

Nature of the power-
The individual was amongst the highest ranking government functionaries in one of the States in India. The Sun is the 5th Lord of power and he was known to be extremely close to several executive heads of State in succession.

Parivartana Yoga-
There is Parivartana Yoga between the Sun and Mars as Sūrya is in a Rāśi lorded by Mangala and Maṅgala is in a sign ruled by the Sun.
Mars is the lord of the Ascendant and in exchange with the 5th Lord produces a Rajayoga of great magnitude.

Charakaraka Confirmation-
When we see the Charakarakas in this horoscope we find that Mars is the Ātmakāraka and the Sun is his Minister, the Amātyakāraka and a huge Rājayoga is formed even in this manner by the exchange. When the Ātmakāraka promises something, it cannot be thwarted and if it is promising unbridled power then so it shall be.

The entire bureaucratic machinery was under direct orders from the native of this horoscope, for a long time and despite all sorts of machinations, he could not be dislodged from his high perch.   

Charakaraka Replacement-
In this horoscope the phenomenon of Lopa or the disappearance of the Charakāraka is happening as Mars and Sun are exactly at the same degrees of longitude of arc traversed and the difference is not even in the minutes but in the seconds of arc! Even so, the original Ātmakāraka Mars being the Agrakāraka or the planet which is ahead, shall be replaced by the Sun as the Aṅtyakāraka and the slot of the Amātyakāraka shall fall vacant.

When the Ātmakāraka is replaced, the entire life of the person changes, and the very hue of the soul that characterises him, undergoes a change. While Mars shows a military bearing, the Sun is pure power and the desire to rule as a matter of right.

The nature of work-
Ordinarily Jupiter is the fixed Amātyakāraka and would show advisory work when the change occurs but if we look closely there is another Parivartana Yoga between Jupiter in Aquarius and Rahu in Pisces.

The work indicated by Jupiter is actually going to come from Rahu, which it did. He was catapulted into close proximity with the political powers of the day. The political powers came and went but he survived with each regime and while his power oscillated slightly he was always extremely significant in matters of governance.

Guru-Chandala Yoga-
The Gurū Chānḍāla Yoga effect is definitely formed owing to the tenuous exchange between the completely opposing tendencies of Jupiter and Rahu. When the heads of State tumbled, the native was seized with massive anxiety as to his own prospects.

Manifest Power in Life-
As I often write, houses from the Ascendant show the potential of things to manifest but not the manifestation itself. The Bhāvas from the Lagna contain the metaphysics of the Karma. What will happen in the world of Maya can only be gauged from the ĀrūḍhaLagna.

Arudha Chakra-
As the Lagneśa Mars is in the Pañcama Bhāva from the Lagna, the Ārūḍha Lagna is in the 9th House from the Lagna in Sagittarius. We see exalted Sun in the 5th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna showing that the native will find the peak of executive power. Mars and Saturn in the 9th from the Ārūḍha Lagna protect the image with ferocity and great reserves of power and the possibility of punishment in the event of things being amiss or going awry.

Vahana Yoga-
A very powerful Vahana Yoga is formed by the conjunction of Venus and the Moon in the 4th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna. Every luxury and enjoyment was available to the native. Both the Moon and Venus have 100% directional strength in the 4th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna. He was a leader of men and a very powerful personality shown by this Yoga. The Yoga is sullied by the presence of Rahu and that too in a sign of Jupiter giving rise to rumours and so on. The exchange with Jupiter does not help this.

Well, the Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh Away-
The problem with Jupiter is also that it is in the 3rd Bhāva from the Ārūḍha Lagna. The 3rd Bhava from the Ārūḍha Lagna indicates the manner and place of demise as it is the 8th from the 8th House.
Jupiter is debilitated in the Navāmśa Chakra and is in exchange with Rahu. Where Jupiter is expansion, Rahu is uncontrolled expansion. The native was suddenly afflicted by a major incurable illness and died in a matter of months.

Badhaka and Badhakesha-
For the Cara Lagna in Meṣa Rāśi, both Śani and Rāhu are Bādhakeśa and the Kumbha Rāśi is the Bādhaka Sthāna.
The Bādhekeśa causes severe afflictions. Firstly, the lord of the Ārūḍha Lagna is in the 3rd from the Ārūḍha Lagna in the Bādhaka Rāśi from the Lagna showing a terrible self-undoing. Śani aspects the 11th House which is again not good. Śani as the Bādhakeśa is with a dire malefic in Mars. The Bādhakeśa is a first-rate killer and the combination of Rāhu and Saturn worked their effect on the 3rd from the Ārūḍha Lagna which is also the Bādhaka Rāśi.
We also cannot ignore the impact on the progeny as the 5th House is badly afflicted and the problems pertaining to Jupiter the Naisargika Kāraka for children have already been pointed out. The Putrkāraka Śukra is in the 8th from the Ātmakāraka Mangala.
We can therefore see that almost exclusively from the Rāśi Chakra we can decipher the entire life of an individual, and that too one who rose very high in his career in terms of power and status.
Of course, with the divisional charts all the minutiae and the specific details in every realm of life can be accurately identified.

In this horoscope, the birth data is being kept back but the planetary placements are given below for reference.

Planetary placements-
Pisces Ascendant rises and the Lagnesha Guru is in the 9th House in Scorpio Rashi.

The 11th House has exalted Mars and Rahu in Capricorn. The 7th House is populated with an exalted Mercury, the Sun and debilitated Venus.

Saturn is in Taurus in the 3rd House from the Lagna, the Moon is in the 12th in Aquarius and Ketu is in the 5th in Cancer.

The native hails from an ordinary background but had high ambitions with Lagneśa in the Bhāgya Sthāna. The ambitions may have extended to the global stage.

The drive can also be seen from the special intervention caused by Śani in the 3rd Bhāva from the Lagna through the Viśeṣa Argalā. Two dire malefics in the 11th House cause Lābha Argalā but the gains are likely to be through questionable means when they are brought by malefics.

Land and Immovable Property-
Exalted Mars indeed gave dubious dealings in land which led to a police complaint being filed against the individual. Rāhu is the 12th Lord in war with Mars in the 11th House and the complaint cited cheating against the individual which is a signification of Rāhu.

Badhaka and Badhakesha-
The main problem though lies elsewhere. Exalted Mercury in the 7th House may give great business but actually it is in Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna and can give death-like suffering. What appears to be abundance and riches is actually less than proper transactions as Mercury is akin to Rāhu, being the Bādhakeśa. It is causing tremendous obstruction being exalted in its own house.

Mercury being the 7th Lord also indicates the spouse who apparently did not notice anything amiss when the riches were being piled up with vehicles (Mercury is also the 4th Lord of vehicles) and houses (4th House is also home) and attributed it to business. According to her, every vehicle and property was seized one by one showing the work of the Bādhakeśa in Bādhaka Sthāna.

Venus is also debilitated in the 7th House as a functional malefic being the 3rd and 8th Lord for Pisces Lagna and afflicts the Bādhakeśa Mercury. With marriage these activities may have spiralled out of control.
The Sun is the 6th Lord and further afflicts the 7th House of marriage and business very badly and all these planets in the Bādhaka Sthāna worked to the great detriment of the native.

When Saturn aspects the 11th House it wants the native to adhere to orthodoxy and tradition and if this does not happen then Saturn becomes adverse. Here Saturn aspects the malefics in the 11th House with sign aspect making this a permanent requirement in life. This aspect has also gone missing in the life of the individual and he would be required to adhere to his faith and religion strictly.

Rahu aspects the 7th House with Graha Dṛṣṭi or planetary aspect and further poisons the situation in the 7th House.

Ultimately the native was arrested. It may be that a lawyer friend may have tried to help him with exalted Mars in the 11th House but Rahu did not permit this to happen as the native did not have the wherewithal to put essential processes into motion. It also may be that the attitude to camaraderie exhibited by the native may have suffered due to the influence of Rahu on the house of friends. Rahu as the dispositor of the 5th Lord Moon spoils the future of friendships and the future generally.

Arudha Chakra-
The Ārūḍha Lagna is in the 5th House from Lagna with Ketu in Cancer. The Moon appears to be in the 8th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna but is not. It is in the 6th as the counting is reversed by Ketu. Ketu is aspected by Saturn with both Graha Driṣṭi  and Rāśi Dṛṣti and it is doubtful if Ketu continued to be spiritual in the Ārūḍha Lagna with this influence. It causes Jara Yoga and the native may exhibit false religiosity with this. Ketu bereft of spirituality is a first rate malefic in the material world and indicates a very poor image, including a criminal image.

Gains from the Ārūḍha Lagna-
Owing to the reversal the three planets in the Badhaka Sthana in the 7th House from the Lagna are in the 11th House from the Ārūḍha Lagna indicating huge gains. We have seen that these gains have not always been through the proper channels and have sent the native to jail.

Dwara or the door-
The native thought that he had to break down the doors with the Mars-Rahu combination to emerge properly into the world, little realising that this would become his image in the world and he would have to fight Ketu (criminality and arrest) to come out of this Karmic trap.

Change in the Image-
What will happen now is that the image will change to Jupiter and the native will continue to strive with Mars and Rahu in the 3rd House from Jupiter. Jupiter may well be the purpose of the birth of the native. But then the 7th House continues to be the 11th House from Jupiter and the dangers persist. Now, Saturn, the planet of tradition and orthodoxy is in the doorway from Jupiter and will require strict compliance especially since it is retrograde.
Before his arrest, the native stated that he saw the folly of his ways and had turned spiritual. This shows the move to Jupiter in the Ārūḍha Lagna.

Mercury Direct in Virgo and Other Vedic Astrology Developments in October 2015

Mercury is in direct motion in Virgo-
Mercury has now turned direct in Virgo in Vedic astrology transits, and is therefore now simply exalted. Earlier in retrogression, it was giving the results of Pisces which is the sign of its debilitation. I discussed some of these facets in this article- http://planetarytransformation.blogspot.in/2015/09/exaltation-of-planet-mercury-in-virgo.html. This paper discusses the exaltation of Mercury in Virgo, which is the situation obtaining at the present time.

The effects of Mercury retrograde, as it was at the time, in Virgo and approximating to placement in Pisces are discussed in my article at this link- http://planetarytransformation.blogspot.in/2015/09/mercury-retrograde-in-virgo-on.html

What’s new with Mercury direct-
As Mercury turned direct, we embarked on an exercise of interpreting two Vedic horoscopes and dispatched the findings to our consulters, readers and subscribers through our Newsletter.

Our Vedic astrology Newsletter periodically communicates esoteric content at an advanced level to those who are on the list, and this content is usually not available for reading on this website.

Subscribe to the Vedic Astrology Newsletter-
If you have not already done so, you can easily and conveniently subscribe to the Newsletter here- http://eepurl.com/W02V1.

Synopsis of the contents of the Newsletter-
In this edition of the Vedic astrology Newsletter, we explore the theme, through practical real-life examples, as to how the contemporary person and understand and transform their lives, avoid the pitfalls and heighten the positives through the higher echelons of Vedic astrology.

In the first example, we survey combinations and Yogas which define the personality and the moment, holding sway over the thought-processes and guiding the intelligence of the individual through placement in the Lagna or the Ascendant.

We get into the peculiarities of planets as lords of houses and how their dignity and strength or weakness can dictate the course of life through events which can be seen readily through the systems of Vedic astrology.

The importance of the Moon is in clear evidence here in this Vedic horoscope as is that of the Arudha Lagna, the image of the person in the world. We see how planets can make a person change his jobs time and again and how the image of the person as seen in the Rashi chart, dominate the choice of career at a given point in time.

The area of marriage is yet another pillar in the life of a person and this is also studied in the example horoscope. We evaluate the inherent strength of the marriage and the factors which might lead to its cessation. The crux principles are brought into sharp relief so that the readers may clearly discern the fabric of Karma laid down by the combinations and placements in the horoscope.

In the second example horoscope also we examine the life and times of an individual whose tenor of life experience underwent a major change owing to a Vipareeta Raja Yoga. This combination is the source of much curiosity and we have made some essentials quite clear through the scrutiny of the Yoga in this horoscope. Typically,  this Yoga is not founded in consistency and longevity and is short-lived. While in this chart, the Yoga transcends itself to attain considerable length, since it is an unexpected success which has come, we have to always keep our investigations open to the possibility of a weak link, especially when the Yoga is required to be strong.

In this horoscope, the transit of Saturn in Scorpio is important and has been analysed. My other papers on the subject may be read here-

In this horoscope, as in the previous one, we again survey marriage. The marriage involves the Badhakesha or the obstructing agent for the horoscope which often introduces the foreign element into marriage (this is slightly different from the usual situation where each spouse visualises the other as some sort of alien or foreigner in any case). The challenges brought about by the transit and placement of Saturn, the Rajayoga which has already manifested and future prospects are all discussed here.

Newsletter Archives-
All previous issues of the Vedic astrology newsletter, including the one discussed above in the preceding paragraphs may be read here- http://us8.campaign-archive2.com/home/?u=2a35fd1592b50f218c342eba7&id=ea5dc9a013

Current transits-
Apart from Mercury, it is important to note that Venus and Jupiter are both moving in direct motion in Leo. They are joined Mars. It at once forms the Guru-Mangala Yoga and triggers Venus into action. There are major reserves of pragmatic and esoteric knowledge both and certain people will give forceful expression to these. Mercury and Sun are together in Virgo and are joined Rahu and there is a great deal of focus on the actual work that you do.

I have already discussed the stressful alliance caused by the mutual planetary aspect between Mars and Saturn, which can be accessed by visiting the following link here- http://planetarytransformation.blogspot.in/2015/09/implications-of-current-transits-of.html

Debilitated and Afflicted Moon in Vedic Astrology Transits During the Weekend Ending September 20, 2015

Vedic astrology and the weekend ending September 20, 2015-
From a Vedic astrology perspective, it is little wonder that people have reported that the weekend ending September 20, 2015 has not been very comfortable. The Moon (Chandra or Cañdra) holds the chariot reins for this life, being the significator of the mind of the human being, and the Moon has been debilitated in Scorpio (Vrishchik or Vṛṣcika Rāśi).
Transit Moon debilitated in Scorpio-
The Moon further signifies the inputs and stimuli coming from society and participation of the being with the community. It also indicates the flow of events and the ebb and flow of emotions and feelings.
In deep and inscrutable Scorpio, the Moon gets Nīca or debilitated as this is the 8th sign of the natural zodiac and the Moon therefore becomes caught in the death-like situation in any horoscope irrespective of the Lagna rising, in the 8th House. This is the Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna placement for the Moon.
Impact of the debilitated Moon-
Debilitation of the Moon immediately stresses and depresses the mind with swirling, deep energies of Scorpio ruled by Mars, overtaking the sensibilities. Irritability and darkness take hold and the weekend which is meant to be a time of relaxation becomes a fuming, secluded emptiness.
If the mind is dying, then no matter what else is happening, the human being does not enjoy that passage of time. So it has been this past weekend.
But there has been more to it, and we must look at the transit chart to see the reasons in a better way.
Transit chart-

Influence of Saturn and Mars-
As if it was not enough that the Moon was debilitated, it had to conjoin Saturn, (Shani or Śani) the great malefic.
Saturn is an old planet indicating past Karma and suffering. It also indicates darkness of various types and is best pleased when people adhere to orthodoxy, much like old men, set in their ways. For the fickle Moon, this is too much to ask, and in the sordid environs of debility, the conjunction has brought great pressure to bear on the minds of many people, whose natal Moon is stressed in the horoscope in some way or the other.
Mars and Saturn are in mutual aspect from Leo and Scorpio and this has led to severe affliction to the Moon which has been caught in the crossfire.
Saturn and Mars are bitter enemies and their mutual aspects show desires to hurt and maim each other. Mars desires to control Saturn and the Moon with His 4th House aspect while Saturn seeks to enslave with his requirements of diligence and hard work owing to the 10th House aspect.
These astrological influences have been out of place over the weekend where they sought to influence the mind.
Getting the Vedic astrology Newsletter-
Many people have said they have not been receiving the newsletter and have therefore utilised some of the negative energies of the weekend for this distress call. But this is solely due to the fact that the email address of this website, from which the Newsletter is issued, has not been added to the Safe Senders list. Please visit your Spam or Junk folders and look for the Newsletters sent in the past. Click on them and mark them as Not Junk.
For those who wish to get on the Mailing List for the Newsletter, here is an easy link to subscribe at- http://eepurl.com/W02V1
Past Issues of the Vedic Astrology Newsletter-
The past issues of the Vedic astrology newsletter may be accessed at-
Onward journey of the transit Moon in Sagittarius-
The Moon will be travelling to Sagittarius next but not before traversing the Gandanta, which is a junctional region between Scorpio and Sagittarius where the mind will be very frayed. This will happen in the wee hours IST so people in India can hope to get through unscathed but other time zones need to be checked for specific influences.
Aspect of Jupiter-
In Sagittarius, there will be an excellent aspect of the lord of the sign, Jupiter (Gurū or Guru) to the Moon in transit infusing the mind with optimism and positive energy and also the requisite knowledge to do things of importance and value.  Jupiter is currently in transit in Leo and aspects Sagittarius with His 5th House aspect bringing great consciousness and awareness to the mind.
This is the only planetary aspect and the circumstantial aspects of the Nodes, Rahu and Ketu are through the Rāśi Dṛṣti or the sign aspect.

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo on September 17, 2015 in Vedic Astrology Transits

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo on September 17, 2015-
I have written at this website about the exaltation of Mercury in Virgo in Vedic Astrology sidereal transits and therefore must also address the fact that Mercury (Budha) will become retrograde late at night on September 17, 2015 and shall continue to be so till October 9, 2015.
Retrogression or Vakra Gati of a planet is a situation where the planet is exerting heightened effort (three times the effort) and therefore indicates intensity of striving.
Why does one strive? In order to get something. Why does one wish to get something? He does not have that thing or wants more of it. It is an expression of desire in any case and to this extent retrogression is like Rahu, the North Node of the Moon.
It also indicates lack or refusal of something to occur and one keeps trying again and again, hoping for the result to come to pass. Retrogression is not desirable for these reasons although the planet becomes very strong so as to try effectively continually.
Retrograde in Exaltation-
Retrograde means opposite or reverse to the norm and when a planet, like Mercury currently, becomes retrograde in exaltation, it starts to give results opposite to exaltation, namely debilitation. This is also since the desire of the retrograde planet is focussed on the house opposite to its station.
Virgo or Pisces-
Mercury is exalted in Virgo but while it is retrograde it will act as if it is in Pisces in debilitation. Mercury becomes debilitated in Pisces because it is quicksilver and childish and does not want to sit and meditate in the Ashrama of the Guru. It feels as if it is in detention after school, and that too in ‘Scripture and Other Holy Practices 101’, while all others of the class play and create a right ruckus just outside.   
Implications of Mercury Retrograde-
A retrograde planet is trying to get your attention by doing the same things again and again. Mercury is the King of the Age of Information and so please check and re-check all your communications three times before letting them loose or else Mercury will check them for you by precipitating things which require checking, re-checking and even re-doing.
This applies to documents, emails, phone calls, bills, contracts, banking entries, misunderstandings, words and phrases, words once out of the mouth are like an arrow and so on, money, commerce, transactions, web, internet, computers, connectivity, financial instruments, filings, hard drives, external drives, texting, what’s up with WhatsApp, schedules, time-tables (those beatific, saintly,  Bodhi things which never seem to work in real life)- you get the general idea.
Contrary to popular belief, hard currency, one of the more significant and less beatific significations of Mercury does not suffer when Mercury is debilitated. They only come in circumstances which harbour distress or difficulty for some party or other or enforced humility in some manner. Nīca Grahas are capable of giving effect to Śrīmaṅtaḥa Yoga.
The Past-
The Past wants to revisit some especially in respect of transactional work. Projects envisaged in the past which never took off, will come calling again. This is virtually like new work which is only coming in the retrograde period because it was to have come effectively in the past.
If other agents of the Past were to come, they would either come crying because of the effective debility of Mercury or some other thing of that nature will happen. These things are more likely if Mercury is retrograde in the natal horoscope itself.
But I, But I, But I, But I, But I.........For God’s Sake Carry On, We Are Listening!-
Mercury is expression and speech and sometimes, with Mercury retrograde or debilitated or exalted and retrograde which gives results of debility, expression and speech are curtailed.
With Mercury exalted and retrograde the difference is that the basic structure of significations ensuing from Mercury are exalted but it is in their manifestation that they suffer. But exaltation is not happy with this denigration and so it is likely to be stylised as a signature line, much in the same way as dramatic effect is sought with a slight, theatrical limp while walking in some cases.
Vedic Horoscope with Mercury Exalted and Retrograde-
The chart below is an instance of Mercury exalted and retrograde in the natal horoscope itself-

Apart from the indications stated in the segment above, the additional concern is that Budha is the Lagneśa and while fostering a perception that the body is sound, due to its retrogression and consequent effects of debility it can create sudden health issues of a serious nature as being the lord of the Ascendant the planet rules the body.
Mercury is joined Rahu-
The only cautionary note which is to be struck is that till Mercury is in direct motion in exaltation, its association with Rāhu is only largely positive but when Mercury starts giving the effects of debilitation then the association with Rahu can become troublesome in the significations of Mercury especially in charts where either Mercury or Rahu are noticeably adverse.

How Life Mirrors Karma in the Horoscope in Vedic Astrology

The most recent Vedic astrology Newsletter titled How Life Mirrors Karma in the Horoscope in Vedic Astrology is now in circulation and can be read at- http://eepurl.com/by4Qqj.

This paper is entirely comprised of practical application of the principles of classical Vedic astrology. 

The horoscopes studied and elaborated on in this Newsletter include one with notable features in the career, prominently a Rajayoga, and how these positives play out against some other lesser combinations and placements in the charts.

Very often we have instances of people wondering what makes someone tick and with pragmatic appreciation, convincing answers are simply not forthcoming. The simple reason is that truth lurks elsewhere, in the Yogas in the horoscope. 

A horoscope with political aspirations and extant governmental connexions is also interpreted, even though the basic career is distinct from the two realms aforesaid. Impediments in statesmanship are identified. Politics is a national passion in India and there can be varying degrees of Karma which can indicate corresponding proximity, participation and reward. Sometimes, the pushes and pulls are all there, and yet that level of success which yields political position and basically catapults is not there. 

Yet another chart shows multiple careers owing to Karmic transformations ensuing from the 8th House from the Lagna.

Another horoscope discusses the challenging features in both the Rāśi Chakra and the Navāmśa Chakra, the Karaka and so on which have led to marriage not having come to pass thus far in life.

Finally, a horoscope is evaluated from the perspective of relationships and marriage, and the Karma therein, primarily from the Lagna but also from other specific reference points such as the Upapada Lagna.

The role of Venus in weakness (debilitation) and the association of the planet of beauty with Mars and the blemish it creates are all considered in the paper. The affliction of the 7th Lord and the Badhakesha is seen along with the shock value of some of these adverse combinations. It does take two to tango but sometimes a glimpse of the Karma from one horoscope is enough to determine the contours of events that are likely to transpire.  

The Newsletter carries images of the charts which have been interpreted so as to afford ready recognition of the planetary combinations and placements leading to specific results in life.
