One of our readers has desired to know the method of worshiping Maa Katyaani who is the giver of married life bliss.

Our readers may also like to know the same.

The general purpose of Maa Katyaani Pooja is to pray the Goddess for the early or timely marriage of an individual mostly girl. Even the boy who is facing such problems is suggested to perform this puja to get the favorable results.

There are enormous reasons for a delayed marriage in a horoscope- may it be Manglik dosh or debilitated seventh house, a weak Jupiter or aspect of malefic planets on the seventh house or on Jupiter and so on.

Even the married couples facing problems in their married life are recommended to perform this Puja to resolve their problems.

It is said that Katyani Vrat was done by Rukmini and she got Lord Krishna as her husband after completion of the Udyapana.

This Vrata is done for seven consecutive Tuesdays. A photograph of Maa Katyani is placed at a sacred place in your house. You should face North or East or North East while performing Puja. A coconut, a red coloured cloth (which is used by a lady) and a Mangalsutra is required. These items should be placed before the photograph. Some Prasad along with other usual puja items like flowers, kukum, paan, cow ghee, gandh, agarbatti and akshat etc.are also required.

How to improve your Concentration Level

Lack of concentration- a growing problem amongst kids and young persons.Parents are worried about their children that they are not getting well in their studies due to short memory or lack of concentration etc. This is a true story in most of the families. Children are not showing much interest in studies as they have vast surrounding of different entertainment gadgets. These gifts of modern technology include great number of channels on TVs, introduction of special programmes for children; 24 hours cartoon networks; filmy entertainment and many more other ever growing amusements channels being introduced frequently by various TV Channels.

As if this was not enough, mobile with lot of other facilities came into picture. Students who are weak in their studies find this type of reward more exciting. Parents provide these facilities in anticipation that they have fulfilled the desire of their children and that they would take more interest in their studies. But when students do not excel the parents are worried. They try to find out other solution for the betterment of studies.

However, the facts mentioned above may be appealing, but these cannot be conclusive altogether. Students who are availing all these facilities are still best at their studies and those without it have been found loosing their grades. All this is a matter of concentration.Is it possible to increase concentration power? How to improve memory, how to focus on the activities you are performing and how to understand the concepts of your subject easily.

It has been observed that persons with weak concentration have the tendency to overlook the matters. They do not wish to go into details and observe everything randomly. Thus to increase the level of concentration one has to develop the habit of observing the subjects in details, to look carefully as if he wants to know every details of his subject.

If we talk about further remedies, meditation is one of the best ways to regain the concentration power in a very short time.
This meditation practice is quite old and is known as Trataka or candle flame gazing. This is very effective and simple way to build up concentration. It brings calm to agitated minds. Not only this, it helps in achieving inner peace and wisdom.

Deep breathing works wonder. Just sit in Lotus Position (padmasan) or simple pose. You can also do it when in chair. Take deep breath and hold it till you can with ease. Now release slowly and continue this process for at least 10 counts. This can be increased account to one’s capacity. One can feel the remarkable difference within a week.

A few Yogasanas can also be tried to increase power of concentration: like


An ayurvedic (Indian system of Medicine) preparation popularly known as SHANKHPUSHPI SYRUP has shown favorable results.A herb known as BRAHMI is also found useful.

As a general astrological remedy those who have weak moon in their horoscope can wear Pearl embedded in silver ring on any Monday on Bright Moon.Concentration power also depends on different planetary position in a horoscope. Aspects of different planet on various houses also have its effect on concentration power.

Those who are suffering from this problem may get my astrological suggestions by providing details of their horoscope or date of birth along with time and place of birth.

Navratri begins on the first day of the bright half of Ashvini (September-October). Navratri ends on the ninth day of Ashvini. The tenth day is celebrated as Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami. This year, the first Navratra will start from 19 September 2009.

Hindus have great regard for this festival which is celebrated in honour of the nine manifestations of Goddess Durga. Navratri denotes nine nights. Navratri is celebrated as a symbol of victory of Goddess Durga over Mahishasura,the demon.

During Navratri festival, she is worshipped under nine different names through out nine days of Navratri. From the first day the worship of following Goddesses starts in the order given below:

1. Ma Shailputri
2. Ma Brahmacharini
3. Ma Chandraghanta
4. Ma Kushmanda
5. Ma Skandamata
6. Ma Katyayani
7. Ma Kalaratri
8. Ma MahaGouri
9. Ma Siddhidatri

All the above Goddesses are worshipped in the form of SHAKTI. The first one Shailputri, daughter of Himalayas is other half of Lord Shiva and the last one who is worshipped as Siddhidatri, has a seat of lotus. All the saints, rishis and yogis and devotees worship the ninth manifestation of Goddess Durga to attain siddhis. People also observe fast on all the nine days to be blessed with knowledge, wealth, prosperity and all the comforts of life.

Fast is observed and only pure and vegetarian meal, fruits and milk is taken only once during the day. Some people choose only two days and some three days to observe the fast according to their capacity.One should chant Durga Mantras or Durga Sapshati during this period. The following mantra can also be chanted:

‘Aaim hreem kleem chamundayai vichche’

The places worth visiting in India during Navratri are West Bengal and Gujarat where special arrangements are made to celebrate this great festival by raising big pandals, jhankis etc. Dances are performed specially Garba in Gujarat and foreigners specially wait to visit these states during Navrati to witness the enthusiasm of Hindus.


Marriage related problems-2

In continuation of my previous article, I shall now discuss the importance of seventh house in interpreting the married life status of an individual.In order to interpret 7th house, the following issues should be taken care of:

  • Look at the 7th house. Planets placed in 7th house. If natural benefic are placed in 7th house, the result will be auspicious. If natural malefic planets are posited in 7th house, result will be inauspicious. Marriage will be delayed and problems will be experienced in finding out a suitable spouse.

  • Now look at the lord of 7th house. If the lord of 7th house is aspecting its own house, i.e. 7th house, there will be harmony in married life.

  • If natural malefic planets are aspecting 7th house, there will be delay in marriage.

  • 8th house in horoscope indicates longevity of the spouse. This should be interpreted carefully. If malefic planets are placed in 8th house, re-think before proceeding further. But if the malefic planets are posited in 8th house of both (boys and girl) the effect is cancelled and their match can be considered.

  • Jupiter, being significator (Karak) for marriage always plays important role and favours marriage during its transit in particular houses in horoscope.

  • Mars in the horoscope of girl in another important planet to consider harmony and happiness in the married life. This should also be interpreted carefully.

  • Similarly, Venus plays important role in the horoscope of boy.

  • Tenth house present in-laws and third house brother-in-laws and sister-in laws. The position of the planets in horoscope representing these houses shows good or bad relations with in-laws.

In my next article, I shall discuss the remedial measures related to problems experienced in married life and how to maintain harmony in married life. Readers can also send their problems related to marriage in this blog. Remedial measures will be suggested according to the planetary pattern in the horoscopes. Remember to send the details of horoscopes of both wife and husband or their respective dates of birth.

Wish a happy married life to all my readers.

Marriage related problems

Today I shall discuss the problems faced by married couples in their married life even though they have matched the horoscopes of both beforehand.

‘Marriages are arranged in heaven’ is an old saying. If this is true then is there any need to match the horoscopes before proceeding for the marriage. Yes, it is almost necessary because ancient saints by virtue of their knowledge have found out the factors responsible for disturbances in a married life which otherwise ought to be smooth. They have also revealed the remedial measures to bring the train back on the track.

Whenever, we go to astrologer for matching the horoscope of marriageable boy and girl, we simply ask him to confirm about the number of points (gunas) available in the horoscope of both. When the number exceeds more than 18 out of a total of 36, we become sure that matching is satisfactory. More the numbers more the satisfaction. We do not go beyond that except the Manglik Dosh. Even most of the astrologers generally approve this theory and nod for the marriage. But practically, this is not the only criteria for a successful marriage, I my self have seen the lack of harmony and availability of disturbance in married life of couples who have scored 28 or 32 gunas out of 36. They or their parents raise fingers on the sanctity of the ancient art of astrology. So, whenever marriage is considered, the natal charts of the would-be bride and groom should be thoroughly evaluated for a happy married life. Now let us start from the importance of Gunas.

While matching gunas we consider Ashtakut Guna Milan (as per Indian astrology) the details of which are given in the following chart:


Max-Marks allotted

Area concerned in life



























As per Indian Astrology texts, if Bhakoota is auspicious, it ensures successful marriage. Gunas are matched on the basis of Ashtkoota. Bhakoota is 7th in the Ashtkoota. Bhakoota is directly related to the mental plane of husband and wife. Bhakoota are known as:

a) 1st and 7th place relation

b) 2nd and 12th place relation

c) 3rd and 11th place relation

d) 4th and 10th place relation

e) 5th and 9th place relation

f) 6th place relation

Combination at S. No. a), c) and d) are considered to be auspicious for matching compatibility. Birth signs of 1st and 7th place from each other get a happy married life blessed with good children.

Similarly placement of birth signs found in 3rd and 11th place from one another’s birth signs bestows financially stability and prosperity in married life. Similarly, if birth signs are in 4th and 10th place the relations will be cordial.

As already discussed, other than ashtkoota Milan, the house and planets of both horoscopes must be interpreted properly to ensure smooth life. We shall not discuss here the manglik/kuj dosha which appears in a horoscope if Mars is posited in 1,4,7,8 or 12 house of a natal chart.

The following problems are generally faced in the married life of a couple:

  • Lack of mental compatibility i.e. lack of understanding between the two;
  • Delay in marriage;
  • Husband harassing the woman on one or other context;
  • Woman not obedient i.e. creating unnecessary atmosphere for picking up a quarrel;
  • Man may be physically weak;
  • Woman may have problem in conceiving;
  • Man may have understanding with his wife but not with his in-laws.
  • Woman may not like to live with her in-laws;
  • There is understanding between husband and wife but they are not living together i.e. man has to go far away for earning the bread;
  • There is understanding between the two, but due to feeble finances, woman is not happy;
  • Woman doubts her husband integrity and feels sick due to her husband’s affair with other woman. (Sometimes, man has no intention like this, but due to his working environment, he may have the unavoidable company of woman which creates suspense in the mind of woman. Here sometimes, woman’s doubt may be true or it may be simply wrong depending on the history of each case.)
  • Case opposite to situation stated in the last para above.

In my next article i will discuss about the other aspects which must be interpreted carefully to make a match a perfect one to avoid any problem in marriage.

5 Remedies for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

I had promised to suggest possible remedies for OCD in my previous article. Though I have found that OCD is not easily curable, in my opinion, it is a curse which is generally present in one’s horoscope and indicates the effect of past karma.  

1.  Person suffering from OCD needs spiritual healing. The person should adopt some GURU (Preacher) and should fully surrender himself with complete devotion and faith. He should remain in company of his Guru whenever he feels intensity of this order.

2.  Keep your self busy. Try to remain closer to the nature. Take interest in gardening; in growing new plants; watering them etc.. Try to listen to plants. It is said that working with soil has good effect in curing this disorder. 

3.  One should not live alone. He should always remain in the company of good friends/relatives and should try to enjoy each moment of their company.

4.  Physical exercises are must, may it be long walking, jogging or swimming etc. Deep breathing and pranayam play important role in releasing the stress which is the main cause of OCD.

5.  Homeopathic medicine Ignitia may also be tried.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and planetary pattern

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety disorder and is expressed by recurrent, unwanted thoughts, repetitive behaviors. Repetitive behaviors can include cleaning, counting, hand washing are generally performed with the hope of preventing obsessive thoughts. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is the fourth most common mental disorder and it is as common as diabetes and asthma.
As sufferer of OCD (Obsessive Compulsion Disorder), I would like to point out whether this order can be located in the horoscope. For long, I have been trying to find out whether planets have their role in gifting this disorder to a native. Interestingly, in my horoscope, it has clear indication. I shall try to elaborate that planets do have their role in giving a particular disorder depending upon their placement in the horoscope. The following planetary position may have contributed to this problem in my horoscope:-

i. Mercury and Sun in twelfth house. Though Mercury (Lord of ninth house) is exalted, but the placement in twelfth house has weakened both the planets.

ii. Moon in sixth house aspecting Mercury.

iii. Moon in Pisces makes a person restless, easily depressed and over sensitive. He cannot even tolerate the slightest sufferings and takes every thing emotionally. It is generally hard for him to digest the practical aspects of life.

iv. Presence of Mars and Ketu (Dragon’s tail) in the first house (House representing Brain).

v. Mars and Ketu (In first house) being aspected by Saturn from the eleventh house.

vi. Rahu (Dragon’s Head) in Aries Sign aspecting the ascendant from seventh house. Rahu being in fiery sign has absorbed the quality of Aries.

Natives of Libra ascendant (which is considered a symbol of balance -TULA) are considered to have great sense of justice. They cannot tolerate injustice to any one - even to animals. When they face a situation which shows the sign of injustice to others and self they feel hurt. If Moon and Mercury are not strong enough, they will feel the incident at heart and may develop the sign of OCD in due course. Moon in sixth house and Mercury in twelfth house have helped me to develop this disorder. I think, apart from other factors, this is the main planetary pattern contributing to development of OCD in my horoscope.

Rahu (Dragon’s Head) is the second main reason for this development which is placed in seventh house and aspecting First House. If not well placed, Rahu is famously known for giving psychic disorders to native.

In nutshell, First house (House of Brain and thoughts) is badly affected by presence of Mars and Ketu in it and being aspected by weak Saturn (the planet affecting nervous system) and horrible Rahu. Moreover, the presence of Moon in sixth house and Mercury in twelfth house (already discussed above) has its pivotal role in providing this GIFT to me. This is interesting to note that disorder is not inherited and no one in my family has symptoms of this type of disorder.

I have presented my views after deeply observing my horoscope and as per guidelines of Vedic Astrology which is unique in finding out psychic nature of a person.
One more point, OCD is hardly curable unless you run away or keep away from the situation which has caused it. Sympathetic attitude of family members and the company he is living in can help to some extent.
So far as possible remedies of OCD are concerned I will discuss the same in my next article.
