George Ivanovich Gurdjieff (13 January 1866/1872/1877? – 29 October 1949), also commonly referred to as Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff and G. I. Gurdjieff, was a mystic, philosopher, spiritual teacher, and composer of Armenian and Greek descent, born in Alexandrapol (now Gyumri). Gurdjieff taught that most humans do not possess a unified mind-emotion-body consciousness, and thus live their lives in a state of hypnotic “waking sleep”, but that it is possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential. Gurdjieff described a method attempting to do so, calling the discipline “The Work” (connoting “work on oneself”) or “the Method”. According to his principles and instructions, Gurdjieff’s method for awakening one’s consciousness unites the methods of the fakir, monk or yogi, and thus he referred to it as the “Fourth Way”.–Wikipedia

Capricorn arises on the eastern horizon with a deeply exalted Mars which is accompanied by atmakaraka Jupiter. Atmakaraka rising in lagna or navamsa indicates royal births(though not always as sometimes it might just be individuals having bearings like royal personages.) This union of Jupiter and Mars is in itself a powerful combination and it is present in 9 out of 16 prime divisional charts in this nativity! As I indicated in case of Aurangzeb royal personages often indicate peculiarities in divisional charts. Also examine powerful cancellation of debility of Jupiter as it’s with a planet which is in deeply exalted in a Kendra house. Moreover, lagna lord Saturn which is retrograde(by virtue of which it becomes even more of a benefic) and also sign lord of Jupiter aspects it fully from Labha bhava.

I was born in a Hindu Bramhin family and my father as well as grandfather had interest in Hindu Astrology and numerology. There were a few books on the subject which I wasn’t allowed to read when I was in school but they created a curiosity in me. My own temperament and spiritual questions baffled me and that also gave me an impetus to find some of the answers using Astrology when I could. Astrology became one of the pastimes for me–sadly there wasn’t enough study material available and sources were contradictory or inefficient in providing answers, still there were certain things which made sense in many cases and about 70% times results provided a satisfactory answer. What started as a study of my own psychic layers became an active interest for me. There are many exceptions and baffling questions and I feel Astrology is a proto-science but there are certain charts which establish clearly that they belong to a great personality and such cases also affirm your faith into furthering your study of Astrology. The birth chart of Donald Bradman is one of such charts. Continue reading “Donald Bradman’s Horoscope”
