  8. Fareeduddin Says:

    The common feautures described here are ok.There are certain things which are blindly imposed by the Vedic Astrologers Turned to be very wrong such as Sade Sati.I openly challenge & declare Sadesati or Kantam Shani are non-sense things.The reason is every human today has problems in daily life as if they are in Sadesati.Guruji Sri KP has rejected such things or Raja Yoga’s formation exist.And also advise to consider Prashnavali (Horary) system instead pressuring one’s Birth chart.The world reknowed Astrologer Mr.Bejan Daruwalla who ever announced few months in advance on Ganesha speaks that India will win Cricket World cup.He also gave me predictions on certain things,same thing goes to Pandit Puranvasu of Indastro predictions which failed miserably.I was informed that their prediction is just an idea but not merely right thing.See their mentality.By right Bejan daruwalla should have stopped Astrology if he is sincere after world has seen his prediction on Cricket world cup has failed but he is still active.Look at this Siva baba message in Youtube are very sincere & true.I have tried few puja’s which work wonder for me.Thanks to Astroved for providing genuine services.

    It is advised to check both Moon and ascendant signs but sometimes the colors given can be contradictory. For example, I have Sagittarius ascendant and Capricorn Moon sign. According to ascendant, Red is very lucky for me whereas According to Moon sign, Red is a very unlucky sign. In this situation, should I choose to wear Red or not?
