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
Gobind Singh (22 December 1666 – 7 October 1708), born Gobind Rai, was the tenth Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher. When his father, Guru Tegh Bahadur, was beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam, Guru Gobind Singh was formally installed as the leader of the Sikhs at age nine, becoming the tenth Sikh Guru.His four sons died during his lifetime in Mughal-Sikh Wars – two in battle, two executed by the Mughal army.
Among his notable contributions to Sikhism are founding the Sikh warrior community called Khalsa in 1699 and introducing the Five Ks, the five articles of faith that Khalsa Sikhs wear at all times. Guru Gobind Singh also continued the formalisation of the religion, wrote important Sikh texts,and enshrined the scripture the Guru Granth Sahib as Sikhism’s eternal Guru.

I was thinking about publishing an article on Vedic Astrology. The thought that Aquarius Moon people have been great researchers immediately occurred to me and Leonardo-Da-vinci, Leibniz, Goethe -all Aquarians flashed before me. Then as I searched Kapil Sharma on Astrosage site I learnt that his birth data has been revised now. Earlier it was ‘dirty data’ casually picked up from the web but now it’s been referenced from some book it seems. I had forgotten that I thought about Aquarius Moon and I searched for Kapil because I had recently watched him on TV. I was surprised to find that he is an Aquarius Moon–though I had examined his horoscope before but since it was not reliable data I did not wish to publish and I had forgotten by now about his Moon sign.

Dev Anand was one of the most popular romantic actors of Indian Cinema and a very influential one as well. I feel his songs especially from 1960s era are treasure for music lovers. He was fortunate to be at the right place at the right time because the golden era of music in Indian cinema did not come again. Out of the great trio of Raj Kapur, Dileep Kumar and Dev Anand, Dev had the greatest success as a romantic hero and hence his movies bagged some of the best romantic melodies.

Cancer Lagna rises with Moon and its north node in it. He was a very sensitive and popular person with an emotionally stable temperament which led to many romantic liaisons. Since Lagna is weak ( 27 degrees) and Rahu afflicts it he suffered from asthma in later years. Jupiter in the 6th house clearly indicates corpulence in later years. Exalted Saturn and Venus in its own house together aspect the lagna and Moon making his horoscope a fairly powerful one, no wonder he gained popular as well as critical acclaim.

Moon is in the navamsa of Mars and aspected by Saturn in Rashi. As I’ve so often suggested in these articles there is no black and white in renunciation. Saturn doesn’t aspect Moon fully and Moon is also influenced by Venus and Mercury. The aspect of Saturn is stronger when it’s the sole aspect. It’s evident that he lived a very rigorous life of an ascetic and despised luxuries. Continue reading “Horoscope of Pandit Shri Ram Sharma Acharya!”
