Astro-Profiles of Celebrities

Dear Students of Vedic Astrology,

The Astro-Profile articles are in-depth research articles that teach Vedic astrology principles through the example charts of celebrities, which is one of the best ways to learn. Each Astro-Profile includes example charts, quotes of classic texts, statistical research, and stories of popular figures, which makes learning enjoyable. Some will analyze the chart of a single celebrity, while others will use many example charts to demonstrate a Jyotish principle.

Most Astro-Profiles are written by Marc Boney, M.A., who is a senior student of K.N. Rao and a mentor of mine. Marc takes astrological writing to a new level with his entertaining stories, classic quotes, and statistical research. Read a sample article here: Unmasking a Heavily Afflicted Planet.

The Timing of Marriage and Relationship

30 pages - 6,100 words

Everybody wants love in their lives, and therefore the most common question posed to astrologers is about relationship, especially "When will I meet Mr or Mrs Right?!"

This Astro-Profile teaches how to accurately predict the timing for marriage and/or the beginning of a relationship. It outlines comprehensive steps for interpreting both the natal chart and the navamsha, the divisional chart for marriage. It also discusses the common dashas and sub periods for marriage, and shows how to cross check using multiple dasha systems.

Through the example charts of Sonny and Cher Bono, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Princess Diana and Prince Charles, Antonio Banderas, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Paramahansa Yogagananda, Elizabeth Taylor, Woody Allen, Paul Newman and many others the principles for timing marriage come alive. Over thirty example charts are used, including many of ordinary people.

If you've ever had uncertainty about how to predict marriage this Astro-Profile will make it abundantly clear.

The Dashamsha Chart: The 10th Part of Glory

41 pages - 12,600 words

Without the use of divisional charts Jyotish is a "crude affair and blunt instrument" my teacher says. This brilliantly researched article teaches how to refine our interpretive skill through the use of the Dashamsha chart, the key division for career success. It shows statistical research on 27 charts and gives 19 detailed examples of both celebrities and ordinary people. Through quotes from classic texts and examples it shows what yogas and planetary positions bring success, particularly the dashamsha lagna. It also shows four examples of how to use the dashamsha for birth time rectification.

This article has a fascinating section on the Catholic miracle worker Padre Pio, and shows how the dashamsha and vimshamsha charts clearly reveal his spiritual powers.

By analyzing the charts of Mark Hammil, Cary Grant, Wilt Chamberlain, Richard Bach, Meryl Streep, Gerald Ford, George Lucas, Lord Byron, Herman Hesse, Benjamin Disraeli, Julia Roberts, Sean Connery, Grace Kelly, Sylvester Stallone, Billy Graham, and others the principles of using the Dashamsha chart come alive.

The Importance of Alternate Lagnas (Ascendants)

18 pages, 6300 words

This Astro-Profile article was published in the Jan-March issue of the Journal of Astrology.

The word lagna means to be fixed to in Sanskrit. It is usually considered to be synonymous with the ascendant, but the lagna can be fixed to any position in the horoscope, thereby becoming an alternate lagna or alternate ascendant.

The most important alternate lagnas are the Moon and Sun. The ascendant, Moon, and Sun represent the body, mind and spirit respectively. Analyzing the chart from all three positions give us a more complete and accurate chart interpretation.

In this Astro-Profile article we will be demonstrating the importance of alternate lagnas with dramatic examples in eleven charts, including Dennis Rodman, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Donald Trump, Ravi Shankar, Stephen King, Muhammad Ali, Matt Damon and others. We will also back up our points with seven quotes from five of the classic jyotish texts. Whether you already use the alternate lagnas, or this information is new to you, your skill in chart interpretation will significantly improve after studying this fascinating article.

Venus Williams's Big Comeback

Venus Williams's Big Comeback

13 pages, 4200 words

This Astro-Profile article explains astrologically the dramatic comeback of Venus Williams in the summer 2005. Over the last few years Venus had become a disappointment. The former #1 women's tennis player in the world was on her way out, or so everyone thought. She hadn't won any major championships, her ranking had tumbled to #16, and she was plagued with numerous injuries. Fashion and interior design became her thing, not tennis.

That story recently changed. In May she won her first tournament in a year in Turkey, and then remarkably she went on to win the year's biggest tournament at Wimbledon on July 2nd! This was her 3rd Wimbledon singles championship, but this year she was hardly anyone's bet to win, being seeded a low #14. The year before she had lost in the 2nd round. This year, however, Venus was arguably the brightest planet in the sky again, practically overnight.

How can this dramatic comeback be explained astrologically? Read this article and find out.

The Dasha Lagna: Key to Accurate Predictions

16 pages, 5700 words

This Astro-Profile article demonstrates the use of the Dasha Lagna, which is a conditional alternate lagna (ascendant) used only for the duration of the dasha period. With its use, the effects of a dasha period can be understood clearly, however, only a few modern Vedic astrology books even mention this method.

This article substantiates the use of the Dasha Lagna with fifteen quotes from seven classic texts, as well as from K.N. Rao. Find out how ancient quotes from Sage Parashara and other sages about the Dasha Lagna precisely describe Martha Stewart's recent imprisonment as well as events in the lives of Oprah Winfrey, Tiger Woods, Bjorn Borg, Frank Sinatra, Ravi Shankar, Stephen King, Dennis Rodman and other example charts. Many of these events cannot be understood without the use of the Dasha Lagna.
