Avoiding financial losses with Vedic astrology

It is still a doubt in many people’s minds about whether or not something like Pancham-Shani or Sade Saati or a Dhaiya really exists. But the truth is, that if you analyze your health, financial and relationships closely and interpret it as per the astrological patterns, you may find out that Pancham Shani, Sade Saati and Dhaiya are all true, even in today’s context.

In astronomy, the words Pancham Shani, Saade Saati or Dhaiya can be as terrifying to believers as a physical blow. These words are not considered good and it all results because of the position of Saturn. It is evident that people who are under the Pancham Shani experience great financial crisis and losses while their expenses tend to rise.

Western or Placidus system of house division

Placidus system
Horoscopes are divided into 12 divisions known ashouses. These houses are usually divided into 30-degrees because the sun usually spends about 30 days in each house. However, in the western or placidus system the houses are divided in varying degrees as the sun never stays in the house for same period.

 As the earth rotates around its axis, there is day in some parts and night in some, so there are stars rising in east and setting in west. The eastern horizon is calculated as the first house and the western horizon is calculated as the 7th house. The northern point above the head, also known as the mid heaven, is the 10th house. In Indian astrology, the rising point, setting point and mid heaven point are always considered as the centre of the house whereas in the western or placidus system they are considered as the starting points of the houses.

Every planet is associated with a particular amount of energy and that energy is released during particular duration called the Dasha and the results are always in correspondence to the house in which that particular planet is placed. Planets can be categorized into Personal planets and Collective planets.

What is zodiac?

The 12 constellations that mark the path where sun travels over the course of one year are known as zodiac in astrology. The term ‘sun travels over a year’ is however a loose one as the sun never travels but it is an illusion created by the revolution of earth. Each of these 12 constellations has a boundary assigned, which spans 30-degree.
They also have signs attached to them and they are closely related to the way Earth moves in the universe. The dates of horoscope correspond to the position of constellation when sun passes through them.

What is a Gregorian calendar or the western calendar

Gregorian calendar is the most accepted calendar internationally.  It was introduced by Pope Gregory XIII on 24 Feb 1582.  This calendar was started to rectify the anomalies in Julian calendar.  The Julian calendar assumed that a year was based on 362.25 days; however a year was actually 11 minutes shorter than this duration.
