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. Let’s briefly examine his birth chart here!

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!”

Ranakrishna is one of the most influential sages since late 19th century. His horoscope has attributes of a great personality. There are two aspects to be observed in the personalities of liberated sages–one is degree of realization and second is strength of personality. These two aspects remain inversely related with each other. Deeper realization means weaker personality and stronger personality means weaker realization. Do exercise caution here in understanding that this is applicable only in case of self-realized sages and not in ordinary charts. You might come across many weak and timid characters which are not self-realized and you might also come across some charismatic personalities which are not liberated. Only in case of sages–the stronger personality means the work done by it is great and affects world more visibly. Weaker personalities in such cases suggest that sage affects society only subtly and mostly remains unknown.
To take an example: Ramakrishna and Gandhi had strong personalities. Their effect has been very visible. Ramana Maharshi had comparatively weaker personality but a great depth of realization. It doesn’t mean that there haven’t been sages with personalities weaker than that of Ramana. Ramana indeed had a strong personality and he did affect masses. But when we compare his personality with Ramakrishna and Gandhi it’s weaker. Some people in southern India did consider Ramana as an avatara of Kartikeya but many more considered Ramakrishna to be an avatara. Avatara has a stronger personality and hence work done by it is more. More power means more energy and hence more work. Krishna, for example had a great personality–one of the most charismatic and also great realization, he not only delivered Vedic wisdom in form of Arjuna/Uddhava Geeta but also greatly changed course of history in the world, therefore he’s considered to be an avatara by a great number of people. Many movements still worship Krishna and find salvation through him. Jesus, Buddha and Muhammad also had great personalities which affected great religious movements.

- Ascendant and Moon are both in the Magha nakshtra. It’s one of the three Ketu ruled constellations. Ketu ruled constellations are good for spirituality but bad for material relations. It’s said that natives with this placement have ability to leave body at will by withdrawing praanic currents but it can be true only for a Yogi. It has been reported that Yogananda left his body instantaneously while delivering a lecture by concentrating between his eyebrows. Continue reading “Horoscope of Paramhamsa Yogananda!”
