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 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.
