GULIKA AND ACCIDENTS



GUIKA AND ACCIDENTS

Gulika is extremely important as an active killer in Indian predictive astrology.
The Lagna, the Moon and Gulika falling in Dwiswabha (dual) or Sthira (fixed) signs prompt multiple ailments and fatality. In Chara Rashi (Movable signs), it leads to good health and long life.
The Lagna, the Moon and Gulika falling in mutual Trikonas in the Navamsa chart, particularly in Rashis 4, 8 and 12 are fatal. Such a native is disease prone and accident prone. This is according to the Prasnamarga.

GULIKA AND PROGENY

Gulika in the fifth House, particularly in Rashis 3, 6, 10 and 11 leads to lack of children. In such a situation, the native likely to have some defect in his generative organs.
Gulika may ensure ensure successful conception when:
1.       The Gulika and Moon are in the same Sign
2.       Gulika is with the 5th lord.
3.       Gulika is aspected  by the 5th lord.

GULIKAN


SIGNIFICANCE OF GULIKA  (MAANDI)

Gulika son of Saturn holds a position of prime importance in the evaluation of a natal chart . Also  called as Maandi, it like Rahu and Kethu, has no Physical existence. But it always makes a difference in the natal chart output. Gulika is generally considered the most malefic entity in a chart. According to the set standards of assessment of maleficence , is surpasses all natural malefics. Gulika enjoys a special status almost like an independent planet, and in astrological classics it is considerd as a miner planet  or sub planet. In the traditional astrological practice, the Gulika Kundali (a horoscopic chart, with houses reckoned from the position of Gulika) used to be an essential component of the Thalakkuri (the scroll carrying the horoscopic details of a native, according to the traditional system of making horoscope in India. In vedic astrology,  Gulika and maandi considered synonymous although some people try to differentiate between them. Gulika  denotes a certain segment of time controlled by Saturn. The word Maandi is derived from Manda or sluggish, another name of Saturn.
Results of Gulika:
Gulika in the first House most certainly reduces the good results of chart. When Gulika occupies the Ascendant the native will be a thief, be cruel and devoid of modesty, unlettered in Vedas and Sastras, will not be slim, have a deformed eye, be wanting intelligence, have a few children,  be a glutton, mostly miserable, lustful and depraved, not long living, nor brave; will be stupid and short tempered.
When Gulika occupies the second House, the native will not talk in a pleasant way, will be quarrelsome, will have little wealth, or corn and be living in foreign land. He will not be true to his word, nor could take part in any discussion intelligently.
If Gulika is posited in the third House, native born will be known for his aloofness, pride, drunkenness and such other bad habits, will be mostly short tempered and ostentatious in the acquisition of wealth. He will be without a sense of distress and fear and will be without brothers and sisters.
When Gulika occupies the forth house, the native has no relatives, vehicles and wealth.
When Gulika occupies fifth House it leads to troubles from progeny. And so on.
Only in houses 3, 6, 10 and 11 does Gulika generate beneficial results.
When Gulika is in the 7th house, the native will be quarrelsome, have many wives , be hostile to people and ungrateful; a man of little learning and somewhat angry.
If Gulika occupies 8th house the native has a deformed face, week and impaired eyes; of short stature.
Natives having Gulika in the 11th house in their birth chart will be blessed with happiness, children, intelligence, power and beauty.
Gulika in the 12th house will make the native insensitive to sexual pleasure, poverty – stricken and incurring heavy expenditure.
The good results of Gulika (from its placement in the above houses ) are lost when the Rashi and Navamsha lords of Gulika are ‘neecha’ (debilitated) or combust.
To Mitigate the Evil

One should worship Lord Shiva regularly in the evening , bow down to the Sun God and Lord Vishnu in the morning, and light a holy lamp of ‘ghee’ before a Shiva temple. This would defy the evil arising out of an adverse disposition of Gulika.

7.5 Years of most malefic influence of Saturn ( Ezhara Shani)


7.5 Years of most malefic influence of Saturn

In Hindu Astrology Saturn plays a very vital role in man’s life-good or bad. When an astrologer talks of‘7.5 Shani’ (Sade-sati), it sends shivers down the spine of the client. He at once appeal to the astrologer to devise some means to extricate him from  the clutches of Saturn’s most  obnoxious attacks. Let me apprise you of the malefic as well as benefic characteristics of Saturn. It is a double edged weapon- both protector as well as destroyer. It is the most malefic in Aries and most exalted in Libra. Capricorn and Aquarius are its own Raashis or signs, but in enemy’s sign or House it wreaks havoc and spreads destruction all around. It destroys the enemy Raashis. Its friends are Venus and Mercury; but it sworn enemies are Sun, Moon and Mars, i.e. Aries, Cancer, Leo, and Scorpio are its foes. Jupiter – of course, is of equal strength. Its aspects are 3rd, 7th and 10th    from the House which it occupies. It is the Lord of Capricorn and Aquarius which extend from 270 to 300 degrees and 300 to 330 degrees respectively. It may be noted that Saturn in Jupiter’s sign, i.e. Sagittarius and Pisces, is benefic; whereas Jupiter in Saturn’s sign, i.e. Capricorn is debilitated and weak.
Everyone has to pass through this fire; some are burnt and scalded and some come out unscathed like metal tuning in to gold. For some with malefic Saturn it is all poison and venom; but for those with exalted Saturn it is all fine. It may be noted that Sun remains in one sign for one month; Moon for 2 .25 days; mars for 1.5 months; Jupiter for 13 months; Venus and Mercury for one month; Rahu and Kethu (retrograde) for 18 months moving backwards; but Saturn’s sojourn in one sign is for 30 months
People with malefic Saturn are cheats, indolent, lazy, thief, liar, jealous, subtle like snake notorious, callous and cruel, full of anger and venom, stubborn, secretive, but self respecting, may break but will never bend before enemies; hit back with vigor when insulted; terror for their foes. Even in day-to-day dealings, such persons are peevish and quarrelsome.
Remedy lies in facing this period with stoic courage, for after this dark period, again there will be sunshine and glory. My advice is “Never lose heart, face it boldly and cheerfully, for life is a web of grief and happiness. Have you. Have you ever known a man, howsoever eminent, who has not suffered in life?.
Apart from meditation, do good to all; imbibe noble thoughts; donate milk (Moon’s articles) and almonds, iron tongs or coconut (Saturn’s articles) to the needy and the poor. Pray Lord Shiva, Sastha and Hanuman. This will boost your morale and will strengthen your resolve to steer clear of this trap of malefic Saturn.

THE STATUS OF SUN IN YOUR HOROSCOPE


PLANETS

SUN
(SOORYA)

    It is the central force of the solar system. It is the king emperor that rules over the body and soul and all other planets obey his commands. It is the supreme source of light and life. If Sun exalted it brings glory and fame; and if weak or malefic it brings misery. A man with an exalted sun is born to rule and the one with a weak Sun is born to serve. In Hindu Mythology, we call it Lord Vishnu who is the Lord of the Universe. In Islamic astrology it is called ‘SHAMS’ or ‘KHURSHID’ in Persian. His height is normal; has a bright face; both the hands raised and are ‘lion’ like. Its main period lasts for six years.
An exalted Sun confers glory, brightness, long life, such a man is truthful, will never face bad days, will earn a lot; even death will lose its sting.
Sun, if in conjunction with Rahu, Saturn, and Kethu and adversely aspected by them, brings about worst results. It is in fact eclipsed.
Sun in House no. 1:
Very wealthy, king like status, self made rich. Handsome in body, thoughts and soul; honest; intellectual; liberal; justice-loving; helpful to father; strict administrator, but should be a polite businessman. Early morning birth; short-tempered; long life.
