Predictive Sciences - What is your rashee??
by Greenstone Lobo
What is your rashee?? This is a question which many people would have posed to you at sometime in your life.
This may come as a shocker to you, but your response to that question need not necessarily be true!!
This means that you could have thought all your life that you are a Scorpio and you may NOT be one at all. So when you claim that you are a Scorpio, people exhibit conditioned reactions such as feigned admiration or fear exclaiming, 'Oh, you are a Scorpio!'. You would have wondered what the fuss was all about and pondered over the widespread gospel about Scorpions being passionate, ruthless and vengeful. Often, You may retort by saying “That’s not me at all!” Then, you go on to read Linda Goodman's Sun Signs and you either convince yourself that you are a Scorpio or you contest it saying that it’s all bogus and Astrology is nothing but hogwash.
Well... somewhere there must be a mistake!
A 5000 year old science can't be wrong... right?
The fact of the matter is, the universe has been undergoing a wobble since thousands of years. The universe has slowly moved away from its place and is lying almost 3/4 zodiac sign away from its original place. Hence most of you thinking you are an Arian could actually be a Piscean!
The wisdom of our ancestors can be gauged by the fact that they knew this phenomenon since ages and they have included this in their calculations. This calculation is called as the Nirayana method of calculation. The calculations done by the western astrologers, using the 'fixed' zodiac is called as the Sayana method. In my practise of astrology in the last 2 decades, I can say that I have got accurate results only when using the Nirayana method and not while using the Sayana method.
First things first.... It’s important to realise that it’s not just the Sun sign that makes up a person's psyche.
If that were the case, we would have only 12 different types of people in this world and the HR managers would have no problem in identifying the core competencies. All Geminians, Arians and Librans would have been in sales, Cancerians would have cooked for all, Virgos would do all the mundane boring jobs, we would have only Leo bosses and poor Pisceans would never have been promoted!
The fact is that our mental make up is determined by the composition of the zodiac signs in which we have our Sun, Mercury and Moon. Sun rules the self, the ego. Moon rules our emotions and Mercury rules our mental processes.
A Permutation and combination of these 3 planets in the 12 zodiac signs render 186 different types of human beings! Suppose a person is born on 7th July 1981, he has his Sun and Mercury in Gemini and Moon in Leo and he would have thought all his life that he is a Cancerian! M.S. Dhoni, was born on this day and it’s very clear why he thinks on his feet (In fact in any position) so quickly and has amazing reflexes, typical of a Gemini. He has taken to leadership like fish takes to water, because he is a natural at it, a la Leo.
Another case in point is the great, Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin was born on 24th April 1973 and yes… he is not a Taurean! Sachin has his Sun in Aries, Mercury in Pisces and Moon in Sagittarius. Hence he has the brutal power and fighting ability of Aries, is extremely athletic and retains that child-like charm of a Sagittarian and can read the mind of the opposition and change his batting style like a chameleon, like a Piscean. And yes...he is not a Taurean!
Now another example would be Salman Khan
Salman Khan is born on 27th December. Traditional astrology makes him a Capricorn. Now, Capricorns are supposed to be conservative, career oriented, have excellent communication skills, are very politically correct, traditional, love settling down in marital bliss early in life, are painfully shy with the opposite sex, hate to show off their body and very careful about their image. Now, as we all know-none of these characteristics are seen in Salman Khan, because he is not a Capricorn!
He is a combination of Scorpio, Sagittarius and Aquarius.
Scorpio makes him revengeful (remember Vivek Oberoi), Sagittarius makes him an open book and Aquarius is responsible for his unorthodox behaviour and his Being Human)
All this confusion about the ‘real’ rashee very clearly shows that there is a need for realignment of dates, against popular myth about when Sun changes signs.
The following table gives you sun’s ACTUAL (Nirayana method) entry into the zodiac signs. THIS is YOUR 'REAL' Sun sign!
14th April to 14th May = Aries
15th May to 14th June = Taurus
15th June to 16th July = Gemini
17th July to 16th Aug = Cancer
17th Aug to 16th Sep = Leo
17th Sep to 16th Oct = Virgo
17th Oct to 15th Nov = Libra
16th Nov to 15th Dec = Scorpio
16th Dec to 13th Jan = Sagittarius
14th Jan to 12th Feb = Capricorn
13th Feb to 14th Mar = Aquarius
15th Mar to 13th Apr = Pisces
This must be huge paradigm shift for many. The idea is not to break some fondly held, well established views but to bring forth the truth!
There has been a few astronomers claiming that they have discovered a 13th Zodiac sign and named it as Ophiuchus. Now…what is this Ophiuchus?
Ophiuchus is not a new phenomenon just discovered…It was known since 3000+ yrs to our ancestors and this was originally called as Abhijita nakshatra (constellation) in Indian astronomy. Every zodiac sign consists of multiple constellations. For eg: the zodiac sign Aries consists of multiple constellations like Alpha-Arietis, Beta-Arietis, Alcyone etc. These constellations are named as Ashwini, Bharani and Kritika respectively in Indian terminology. Similarly Ophiuchus is not a separate zodiac sign but a constellation. Ophiuchus, also known as Abhijita is a part of the Sagittarius constellation. You cannot call Alpha Arietis as a separate zodiac sign, its a part of Aries. Similarly, you cannot call Ophiuchus as a separate zodiac sign, its a part of Sagittarius.
So...no panic, there are only 12 zodiac signs still.
So where does it leave you?
What's your Rashee?
Well...get your horoscope done either using computer software (in the Nirayana method) or by a competent astrologer and settle the issue.
But, what is important to you and me is to know the exact date when the Sun changes signs and that is explained above. So, locate your exact Sun sign….it could be different from what you have thought.
When you read your horoscope including all the other planets like Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Pluto etc, you will be surprised to have an accurate insight into yourself. You will know why you have that little quirk in your character and that shade in your persona.
You now know your true Sun sign, as per the table given above. You need to know the Moon and Mercury positions in your horoscope. This can be done easily from a computer software or online from some websites. Make sure the calculation is done in the Nirayana system. Then go back and read Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs for all the 3 zodiac signs. You would realize that you reflect the characteristics of these 3 zodiac signs in some assorted way, which makes you unique….or at least one out of the 186 types.
You also have the choice of talking to us @Life Positive to have an in depth analysis of your horoscope.
The long journey of conquering the world... starts with a little step... knowing yourself.
