Special Diwali Offer!👉
Moon in Swati – Though you may see your choices as somewhat limited, there is more opportunity open to you than you may surmise! It’s just that the opportunites that are these lack in clarity or definition, making it difficult for you to choose the best direction. With a lot riding on your shoulders in regard to the decision that you do make, you feel that you can ill-afford to make a mistake! A decision must be made! And to do so means that you have to pay only a bit of attention to the restlessness you feel to see if it is tinged with fear! If so, ask yourself if that fear is really valid! Regardless of whether it is or not, you still have to go forward. But at the very lest, you would have confronted your fear! That will make decision making all the easier!
Happy Diwali!I am often asked by viewers/readers about the difference in my Nakshatra posts from the traditional. As many of you will likely query, the majority will have the New Moon as listed in Swati. I use different calculations that place the New Mon itself in Vishakha. But the Swati energy leading up to it is very relevant, hence today’s post. Here is a bit more about the calculations I use and why I use them. To say simply, I do not use Lahiri ayanamsa.
The approach that I use is very scientific as well as my calculations. I only switched after rigorously testing on dozens of horoscopes for accuracy and even switched back and forth a few times for certainty. The results were more accurate every time.
Here is the reasoning behind the Nakshatra Calculations I use.
Many people judge the coordinates of the fixed stars related to the Nakshatras in relevance to where they appear to intersect the ecliptic, or more simply put the path of the Sun as it journeys from Winter Solstice to Summer Solstice and back again. This path moves roughly North-South. But as the Earth rotates on its axis, though the stars (Nakshatras) may appear to rise and fall in a manner that gives the perspective of their movement to be North-South in some areas on the planet, in actuality they are moving in relevance to the rotation of the Earth on its axis, in a manner that is separate from the Earth’s rotation around the Sun, and in a manner that is actually more aligned with East-West.
In my opinion and with the theory that I am working with upon which the calculations I use are founded, trying to judge the coordinates of a particular star in relevance to the ecliptic will not provide as accurate a representation as doing so from as close an approximation of the location of that fixed star as possible.
So, I use a calculation that judges Nakshatra position in relevance to Dhruva (the pole star) and the equator using the coordinates given in Surya Siddhanta as a reference point. This creates a right angle from the Earth’s poles to the equator and as the stars move East-West rather than North-South, I believe will provide a more accurate representation of the actual position of the fixed stars related to the Nakshatras.
I have found this to be both more scientific in theory and more accurate in interpretation using the Vedic Astrology techniques that I utilise as laid out in Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, Jaimini’s Upadesa Sutras and many other classical texts.
This is not to say that others may not be able to give accurate predictions using other systems, but instead to say that I have found this system to work best for the calculations that I utilise.
The ayanamsa one uses will also impact the position of a planet in a Nakshatra. Namaste.
