As man himself is an electrical body discharging different kinds of electrical energies, his success and failure are simply matters of attraction and repulsion between himself and the objects with which he has to deal in his day-to-day activities.
Muhurtha could therefore be defined as that precious moment when the vibrations radiated by man are altered to a specific wavelength capable of entering resonance with the radiations of the same vibratory rate coming from other planets and stars. A very important place is assigned in Hindu astrology to the part played by the Moon in the fi11ng of propitious times.
The Moon rules the mind and all our psychological inhibitions and his position in the election chart is to be particularly dignified. Moreover, whenever an election is to be made, it should always bear a sympathetic connection with the birth chart. Should the radical horoscope indicate several afflictions, no Muhurtha can ensure real success. In fact, the strength of the birth chart may even prevent the person from taking advantage of the propitious period.
Or at best, the chances of failure may be somewhat minimised. There is, therefore, an important factor to be considered, viz. When people do not know the birth chart, the best thing would be to ascertain their name constellation see Appendix at the end of the book and study the transit influences operating at the period in question. Whilst it is necessary to bear in mind that the election chart is likely to be affected by the benefic or malefic nature of the directions operating at the moment in the birth chart and the inherent strength of the horoscope, it is not necessary to go into it in detail.
A number of combinations is given in ancient works to so strengthen the election chart as to make it fruitful independent of the birth influences. These details will be discussed in their appropriate places. Before we take up electional astrology proper, a short description of the Panchanga or the Hindu almanac is very necessary, as the important items constituting a Panchanga have an intimate bearing on the fi11ng of auspicious times. The Panchanga consists of five limbs or accessories, viz: Tithi lunar day , Vara weekday , Nakshatra constellation.
Yoga a luni-solar day , and Karana half a lunar day. The reader will have to be familiar with these technicalities though by far the most mportant ones are the lunar day, constellation and weekday. The five limbs of the Panchanga are supposed to represent the five sources of ethereal energy of which some are visible and others invisible and which when properly secured are said to conduce the health, wealth and prosperity of mankind.
The lunar day is to the Hindu of the most prominent practical importance, since by it are regulated the performance of many religious ceremonies and upon it depend the chief considerations of Muhurtha or electional astrology. In other words, the tithi represents the lunar energy, and lunar energy is identified with mental energy.
Therefore a minute knowledge of the lunar movements constituting tithis is said to give us wealth. Each tithi See Table 2 or lunar day is equal to 0. To find the lunar day or tithi deduct the longitude of the Sun from that of the Moon. The quotient represents the number of tithis elapsed and the remainder the part of the next current tithi that has elapsed. Thus to know the tithi ruling on at 4h 10m 20s L. If this remainder is multiplied by 24 and divided by the difference of the daily motions of the Sun and the Moon, we get the number of hours from.
The weekdays are named in accordance with certain astronomical considerations. Therefore on a weekday bearing the name of a particular planet, the influence of that planet is said to be predominant. The weekdays are numbered thus: Sunday 1. Monday 2, Tuesday 3, Wednesday 4. Thursday 5, Friday 6 and Saturday 7. If constellations are huge electromagnetic bodies radiating energy into space, there seems to be sense in attributing certain influences to these radiations and the Moon coming into contact with such radiations probably exercises influences.
The Janma Tara birth constellation or Dina Tara the constellation of the day concerned is obtained thus:. Reduce the longitude of the Moon to minutes and divide the same by The quotient is the number of constellations already passed, and the remainder, the part covered in the current asterism the Moon is in. For the data given under tithi. The ruling star is the 25th, viz. Every Hindu almanac contains a column specifying the yoga for each day and when it would end. There are twenty-seven yogas see Appendix 4. Yoga represents a conjunction of subtle influences which strengthen our bodies, remove the germs of disease, and help us to enjoy health and life in its various phases.
The Table of Yogas Appendix 4 enables one to ascertain the Yoga on the basis of the joint motion of the Sun and the Moon. There are 11 karanas, viz. The first seven come by rotation eight times in a lunar month, commencing with the second half of the first lunar day. The last four are said to be permanent karanas and occur in order with the second half of the 29th lunar day. In Muhurtha, it is always advisable to strengthen the ascendant and its lord and the Moon. Each type of election requires fortification of some appropriate hoase and planet and these will be discussed in their proper places.
Even when the ascendant is strong, certain parts of it which go under the name of Lagna tyajya should be rejected. Sometimes, only fixed signs are to be chosen; sometimes only movable signs are to be chosen. Hence, a reader has to very carefully understand these subtle distinctions. In Aries, Taurus, Sagittarius and Virgo, the first three degrees should be avoided as it is supposed to be in the nature of a serpent bhujanga and hence destructive.
In regard to Pisces, Capricorn, Cancer and Scorpio, the last three degrees has to be avoided as it is supposed to be presided over by the evil force of Rahu. Each constellation has its own tyajyakala or negative period which is to be invariably avoided. The negative periods commence at the times marked below against each constellation lasting for 4 ghatis 1 hour 36 minutes from thence. Some of these ceremonies such as baptising, first feeding, marriage, etc. It must be noted that the successive stage when the human infant assumes the upright posture, commences to speak and so on, occur at fixed times in normal development so much so that a child that does not begin to talk or walk at the proper time becomes a source of an11ety to his parents.
The change of teeth also marks a transition. Permanent dentition sets in about 7 years after birth. Seven years after this another crisis is reached and that is puberty. A further change is noted about the age of In the human being, it is said that every cell of the body is renewed every seven years, although this is not quite correct for all tissues.
Thus, the Shodasa Karmas are supposed to fortify the. Perhaps a deeper study of the problem will reveal a more correct perspective of the rationale. They are a Tarabala or strength of constellation, b Chandrabala or lunar strength, and c Panchaka or five-source energy. These three should be satisfactorily disposed. Otherwise an election chart will lose its significance. Strength of Constellation. These are highly important. Count from the birth constellation to the one ruling on the particular day on which a new work is to be done or a journey undertaken and divide the number by 9 if divisible.
Otherwise keep it as it is. If the remainder is 1 janma it indicates danger to body; if 2 sampat wealth and prosperity; if 3 vipat dangers, losses and accidents; if 4 kshema prosperity; if 5 pratyak obstacles; if 6 sadhana realisation of ambitions; if 7 naidhana dangers; if 8 mitra good; and if 9 parama mitra very favourable. There are certain exceptions to the favourable and unfavourable results ascribed above and they will be dealt with in the appropriate places.
First Newspaper Horoscopes
Example: — A man born in Aswini elects to undertake a journey on a day ruled by Sravana. This divided by 9 leaves a remainder of 4. This goes under kshema or favourable and hence Tarabala is good. In the Second Paryaya or cycle, e. Janma Nakshatra, etc. In fact the evil is centred only in the first quarter of the 3rd Vipat , the 4th quarter of the 5th Pratyak and the 3rd quarter of the 7th Naidhana of the second cycle. In the third cycle or Paryaya, the Janma, Vipat, etc.
The 3rd is Vipat. But it is said to carry little or no evil. In my humble experience, it is better to avoid Vipat and Naidhana stars for all important undertakings — long journeys, marriage, starting of an enterprise, etc. According to some classical writers, the 22nd and 27th stars are always inauspicious. But our experience is to the contrary. The 22nd is always sadhana and the 27th parama mftra and hence they could be considered as auspicious. To take another example: a person born in Mrigasira Janma Rasi being Taurus wants to have his marriage on a day ruled by Bharani which means the Moon will be in Aries.
Hence, the day is most inauspicious. In fact, Bharani is condemned for all good work and it has to be scrupulously avoided for all good work. Panchaka Five-Source Energy. But in regard to very important ceremonies such as marriage, nuptials, entry into new houses, etc. There are several methods by which panchaka is determined. I shall give the most common method. In the panchaka determination apparently, five sources of planetary, stellar and zodiacal energies are involved.
Take the number of the lunar day from the 1st of the month , the number of the weekday, Sunday I. Add these together and divide the total by 9. If the remainder is 1 mrityu panchakam , it indicates danger; if 2 agni panchakam , risk from fire; if 4 raja panchakam , bad results; if 6 chora panchakam , evil happenings and if 8 roga panchakam , disease. If the remainder is 3, 5, 7 or zero then it is good. As an example, let us assume that A wants to start a business on a day and time otherwise conforming to the requirement of Muhurtha-the constellation being Aslesha, the lunar day being the 13th, the rising sign being Virgo and the weekday Sunday.
Calculating the panchaka, we get —. It indicates Vahni or fire and hence the time selected is not favourable. In dealing with this subject. The general rule of avoiding unfavourable panchaka has certain exceptions. When an election is to do with occupation, avoid Raja Panchaka.
In elections bearing on house building avoid both Raja and Agni Panchakas.
In regard to travel, Chora Panchaka should be rejected. In marriage and upanayanam, Roga and Mrityu Panchakas should be avoided. Conversely it also means that a panchaka declared unsuitable for a particular type of election could be used for a different kind of election. No astrological authority has specifically approved this step but by implication, we can assume that there is no objection if, for instance, we ignore raja panchaka for travelling or marriage or roga panchaka for house-building.
As far as possible, it is advisable to avoid the evil of panchaka in general irrespective of its definite bearing on an election. But when a more auspicious day cannot be secured, we can resort to the lesser of the two evils. As regards Tarabala referred to above, it is no doubt advisable to avoid a day that is ruled by the 1st, 3rd; 5th and 7th constellations.
But when the day is otherwise favourable, only the negative parts of these unfavourable constellations may be avoided. Thus, in the Janma, Vipat, Pratyak and Naidhana constellations, the first 7, 3, 8 and 6 ghatis respectively may be considered evil and avoided. Thus, a man whose Janma Nakshatra is Pushyami can undertake a venture on a day ruled by Makha Vipat provided he avoids the first seven ghatis of the constellation. The stigma attached to the star being Vipat no longer holds good.
Generally these exceptions are resorted to only under circumstances when an election is to be urgently made and when the undertaking admits of no delay. But in regard to nuptials, sacrifices, first feeding, agriculture, upanayanam, coronation, buying lands, learning the alphabet, Janma Nakshatra is favourable without exception.
But it is inauspicious for war, sexual union, shaving, taking medical treatment, travel and marriage. For a woman, Janma Nakshatra would be quite favourable for marriage. There are several technicalities to be considered in the selection of auspicious times and in spite of the apparent inconsistencies to be found in the opinions expressed by different classical writers on this subject, I have endeavoured to give the easiest and what, in my humble opinion, are the most reliable principles bearing on this all-important subject.
The whole of Muhurtha or for that matter, the whole of Hindu astrology is based on the movements of planets in relation to the constellations. The wisdom of the ancient Indians in making predictive astrology, dependent upon the fixed zodiac, is being increasingly appreciated by students of the science. The question of zodiacal influences hinges on the fact whether the star-points or constellations with which the Sun comes into line from day-to-day derive their influences from that body or irrespective of the shifting position of the Sun, there is any virtue attaching to these star-points.
These electro-magnetic bodies are capable of discharging different kinds of energies manifesting themselves in different ways. When a constellation like Bharani beta Arietis is held to be constitutionally unfit for certain types of elections; it means that the vibrations emanating from it are destructive in character. I do not propose to discuss here the astrological influences of the various constellations elaborately. The 28 constellations including Abhijit which is generally ignored in everyday astrological consultations are presided over by Aswini.
Yama, Agni. Rohini, Uttara, Uttarashadha and Uttarabhadra are supposed to be fixed constellations and they are favourable for coronations, laying the foundations of cities, sowing operations, planting trees and other permanent things. Chitta, Anuradha, Mrigasira and Revati are soft constellations.
They are good for wearing new apparel, learning dancing, music and fine arts, sexual union and performance of auspicious ceremonies. Aswini, Pushya, Hasta and Abhijit are light constellations, and they can be selected for putting ornamentation, pleasures and sports, administering medicine, starting industries and undertaking travels. Moola, Jyestha, Aridra and Aslesha are sharp in nature and they are favourable for incantations, invoking spirits, for imprisonment, murders, and separation of friends.
Saravana, Dhanishta, Satabhisha, Punarvasu and Swati are movable stars and they are auspicious fcr acquiring vehicles, for gardening and for going on procession. Purva-Phalguni, Poorvashadha and Poorvabhadra, Bharani and Makha are dreadful stars and they a re suitable for nefarious schemes, poisoning, deceit, imprisonment, setting fire and other evil deeds. Krittika and Visakha are mixed constellations and during their influences, works of day-to-day importance can be undertaken.
Beginning from the third quarter of Dhanishta and ending with the last part of Revati, the time is held to be unsuitable for any kind of auspicious work. This period goes under the name of Nakshatra Panchaka and when these stars are ruling, one should avoid journey towards the south, house repairing or renovation, collecting fuel and cattle fodder or acquiring cots and beds.
Of all the twenty-eight constellations, the pride of place appears to have been given to Pushya, the 8th star. The constellation of Pushya is supposed to be the most favourable of all the 28 constellations. It is said to neutralise almost all doshas or flaws arising out of a number of adverse combinations. The Rishis go to the extent of saying that even if unfavourable combinations are present in the birth horoscope hampering ones success in life, and the ruling constellation and the position of the Moon are all adverse, Pushya has the power of neutralising these evil forces and asserting its benefic nature.
In spite of all the benefic influences attributed to Pushya, it is held to be inauspicious for purposes of marriage. There may be an element of exaggeration In the assertion that Pushya is capable of modifying all the evil influences present in an election chart but there is no doubt whatsoever that it is a constellation par excellence that could be universally employed for all purposes, excepting of course marriage. The farmers of the astrological rules were not mere theoreticians. They were practical men and did not beleive in merely cataloguing their observations for academical purposes.
Whilst it is always desirable to fix a Muhurtha that is auspicious by all standards of astrological rules, there would sometimes be practical difficulties and emergent occasions which admit of no delay. Therefore, emphasis is laid on what is called gunabahulya or excess of good and dosha swalpa or deficiency of evil.
When one has to visit a friend or a relation, who is seriously ill in, a far-off place, we are asked not to attach any consideration to the astrological factors. But when one is to go on a pilgrimage or a business tour or for a marriage, one should see that he starts under influences that are harmoniously disposed towards him. There are said to be 21 great evils ekavimsati mahadoshas which are to be avoided for any auspicious work.
But when one finds it difficult to avoid them because of astrological impossibility or circumstantial inability, one can take advantage of the neutralising combinations which are generally supposed to act as antidotes. We may just make a passing reference to these 21 great evils for the information of the readers. They are: —. Panchanga Suddhi. All these must be auspicious. In regard to lunar days, the 4th, 6th, 8th, 12th and 14th, full and new moon days should be avoided. In regard to vara, Thursday and Friday are held to be suitable for all works. Of the several Nakshatras, Bharani and Krittika should be avoided for all auspicious works as these two are said to be presided over by the god of death Yama and the god of fire Agni respectively.
In urgent cases if the Lagna could be fortified, the dosha due to nakshatra may get neutralised. The last parts of Aslesha, Jyeshta and Revati should also be avoided. Coming to the Yoga vide page 12 the 6th Atiganda. Thus Bava is auspicious for starting works of permanent importance while Thaithula is propitious for marriage. Bhadra is unfit for any good work but is eminently suitable for violent and cruel deeds.
For getting initiation into kshudra mantras Sakuni Havana is propitious. Therefore, Panchanga Suddhi means a good lunar day, a benefical weekday, an auspicious constellation, a good yoga and a fertilising Karana. Surya Sankramana. When the Sun is about to leave one sign and enter another there seem to occur certain disturbances in the organisation of the solar forces and such times are not recommended for any good work. On the contrary, they are held to be propitious for meditation, initiation into secret mantras and performance of certain religious rites which are held to purify not only the bodily electrical discharges but also the mental currents.
Sixteen ghatis 6 hours 24 minutes both before and after the entry of the Sun into a new sign should be rejected for all new works. Karthari Dosha. In an election, when two evil planets are placed on either side of the Lagna, the combination goes under the name of Karthari Dosha and it should be rejected for good work particularly in regard to marriage.
Shashtashta Riphagatha Chandra Dosha. Sagraha Chandra Dosha. This injunction is applicable in case of marriage. Udayasta Suddhi. The Lagna should be occupied by its own lord and the Navamsa Lagna by its own lord or vice versa or lord of Lagna should aspect Navamsa Lagna and vice versa. Similarly the seventh and the lord of the seventh Bhava should be favourably disposed. The strength of Lagna and the seventh is necessary in all elections but so in regard to marriage. A sidereal day consists of 30 muhurthas. The 1st fifteen diurnal muhurthas named are: 1 Rudra.
The nocturnal muhurthas are: 1 Girisa, 2 Ajipada, 3 Ahirbudhnya. In regard to the diurnal muhurtha, the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 15th are inauspicious while in nocturnai muhurthas the 1st. In calculating the muhurtha, the exact length of day and night should be ascertained. Each muhurtha is said to last for 48 minutes 2 ghatis on the assumption that the duration of day and night is of equal proportion, viz. If the length of day is 28 ghatis, then each muhurtha extends for 1 ghati and 52 vighatis 20h 20s. Apart from the above general classification of good and bad muhurthas, the following should also be deemed as unpropitious on the different weekdays.
Particularly in marriages, the muhurthas declared above as inauspicious in regard to weekdays should not be considered. Similarly, the last 2 degrees of Cancer. Scorpio and Pisces and the first 2 degrees of Leo, Sagittarius and Aries are inauspicious. The last ghatis of Aslesha, Jyeshta, Moola, Revati and Aswini and the first four ghatis of Makha should be avoided as injurious for good work. Bhrigu Shatka.
This is so in regard to marriage. Even when Venus is exalted and associated with benefics, such a disposition is not approved. Kujasthama: — Mars should be avoided in the 8th house, as it indicates destruction of the object in view. In a marriage election chart. Mars in the 8th is unthinkable. Even if Mars is otherwise powerful, he should not occupy the 8th house. Ashtama Lagna Dosha. Suppose the would be husband and wife are born in Aquarius and Capricorn respectively.
Rasi Visha Ghatika. They are to be rejected for all auspicious work. Kunavamsa Dosha. Certain weekdays are to be avoided for certain activities. Grahanothpatha Dosha. Ekargala Dosha. Affects matters started under certain yogas such as Vishkhambam. We need not go into details as it is not of much significance. Krura Samyuta Dosha.
Akalagharjitha Vrishti Dosha. Mahapatha Dosha. This is held to be unfavourable for all good work. Vaidhruthi Dosha — This is also an evil aspect yoga and should be avoided in all favourable activities. The reader should not get scared away at the thought of these large number of doshas or planetary evils which are to be avoided if one is to elect a proper time for the fruition of an object in view. Man has to contend against a stupendous number of evil agencies or discordant vibrations released by the planetary bodies and each of these mahadoshas seems to express euphemestically the particular types of evil energies which would affect adversely particular types of human activities.
There are several exceptions to these general doshas. One should always remember that in electing a suitable moment one should try to avoid the major doshas by fortifying the ascendant and taking advantage of the exceptions and ignoring the minor ones. The lagnathyajya referred to supra prevails only on particular days as per details below.
In the first Navamsa — Wednesday and Saturday. In the middle Navamsa — Monday and Friday. In the last Navamsa — Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. In other days the thyajyam has no significance. Chandrashtama shows no evil when the Moon is wa11ng and occupies a benefic sign and a benefic Navamsa, or when there is Tarabala. The sting is lost when the Moon and the 8th lord are friends. Venus, Mercury or Jupiter in the ascendant will completely destroy all other adverse influences. Jupiter has the power of dispelling all the evils due to the Lagna, Navamsa and malefic aspects and render the time highly propitious.
The mere presence of the Moon or the Sun in the 11th will act as an antidote for other evils obtaining in the horoscope. Jupiter or Venus in a kendra quadrant and malefics in 3, 6 or 11 will remove alt the flaws arising on account of unfavourable weekday, constellation, lunar day and yoga. Thus it will be seen that the most important question in Muhurtha is the fortification of Lagna and its lord.
When a certain weekday coincides with a certain asterism and a certain lunar day, it becomes auspicious for good work. In this Chapter, I shall give a few such combinations which go under the distinction of Siddha Yogas. Sunday coinciding with the 1st, 4th, 6th, 7th or 12th lunar day and ruled by the constellations Pushya, Hasta, Uttara, Uttarashadha, Moola, Sravana or Uttarabhadra gives rise to Siddha Yoga.
Monday identical with the 2nd, 7th or 12th lunar day and with the constellations Rohini, Mrigasira, Punarvasu, Chitta, Sravana, Satabhisha, Dhanishta or Poorvabhadra produces the same yoga. Thursday identical with the 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 13th or 14th lunar day and with tne asterisms Makha, Pushya, PunarvasJ, Swati. Saturday falling on a day ruled by Swati, Rohini, Visakha, Anuradha, Dhanishta or Satabhisha and with lunar days Bhadra and Riktha generates the same auspicious yoga.
A Friday coinciding with Nanda 1st, 6th and 11th lunar days , Wednesday identical with Bhadra 2nd, 7th and 12th lunar days , Tuesday coinciding with Jaya 3rd 8th and 13th lunar days , Saturday falling on a Riktha tithi 4th, 9th and 14th lunar days , and Thursday falling on 5th, 10th or 15th Poorna lunar days constitute Siddha Yoga.
The above yogas can be applied with advantage to important elections and if in addition 10 the general strength of the day due to a yoga. Before the actual birth of a child, three important ceremonies are enjoined to be performed. They are nuptials Nisheka , consummation Garbhadana and Pumsavana change of sex. Nisheka is used to denote the first sexual contact, while Garbhadana has reference to the subsequent defloratiohs.
Almost ail the ancient works on Muhurtha start from Namakarana — the name-giving ceremony after the birth of a child-but we start from consummation as it is actually the beginning of the pre-natal e11stence of the child. Sexual union, pregnancy and reproduction of human species are the essentials on which the world e11sts. Sexual union should never be based upon simple sense gratification.
There is a sacredness about sexual functions, and when moral and spiritual considerations are not respected and brought into play; the result will be most unsatisfactory and alt sorts of undesirable progeny would be the products of promiscuous cohabitation.

According to Prof. Suryanarajn Rao men and women are bundles of electricity. When they are brought together sexually a series of electrical currents would be released which may react on them favourably or adversely depending upon the harmonious or discordant nature of the vibrations released. Therefore the first sexual act should not be treated lightly and should be done only when planetary combinations are favourably disposed. Books on ancient Sexology and Astrology reveal that to indulge in coitus during the first four days of menses will lead to serious evil effects as the whole physiological and nervous system of the woman would be in a state of tension owing to the almost continuous discharge of blood.
So the first four days of menses should be avoided. Copulation on the 5th day tends to give rise to a daughter. In general, sexual union on odd days indicates birth of female children while on even days. In the first instance, sexual union is highly recommended on the 6th day of the menses as it is supposed to ensure not only happiness to the couple but also the birth of a dutiful and intelligent son.
Satabhisha are highly favourable for nuptials. Pushyami, Dhanishta. Mrigasira, Aswini, Chitta. Punarvasu are ordinary. The rest of constellations are to be rejected. Monday, Wednesday. Thursday and Friday are auspicious days while Saturday, Tuesday and Sunday should not be considered at all. All lunar days-except the 4th, 8th, 9th, 14th, Full Moon and New Moon are good. The favourable signs are Taurus to Libra and Pisces.
At the time of nuptials, the 8th house should be occupied by no planet. Subject to this proviso, even Sagittarius and Aquarius may be selected as auspicious. The Hindus had long ago known the processes whereby the sex of the foetus could be changed by performing certain remedies and by administering certain medicines when sex differentiation is about to set in. The possibility of change of sex long known to the Hindus was being ridiculed by Western scientists.
But during the last 3 or 4 decades, the opinion of the scientists underwent a gradual change and most of them now admit such a possibility. For the information of the reader, t may just make a few observations of modern medical men on this all-important question. Professor Thury first started a theory about the possibility of changing the sex of the foetus in the womb. This was taken up by Professor Unterberger. Bernard Macfadden has reached certain conclusions regarding the predetermination of the sex with a success claimed in 90 per cent of cases experimented.
Towards the end of this interval, shortly before the new period, it is favourable to boys. It is possible that the chemistry of the mother undergoes natural changes at certain times which correspond to the condition of alkalinity on acidity created artifically by Unterberger with the aid of bicarbonate or lactic acid. There are, according to Davenport, probably four hundred theories of sex determination promulgated during the last two or three hundred years.
One theory generally accepted by biologists maintains that sex is determined by the so-called X chromosomes, in the female there are two of these chromosomes. In the male there is only one. Professor BIchm suggested that the male chromosomes move more quickly in alkaline solution than the chromosomes which carry the feminine principle. A teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda or one spoonful of lactic acid may thus determine the sex of the child. Generally boys are born for every girls. The mortality among the boys is somewhat greater.
It has been found that after great and destructive wars, where men are killed on a large scale, the number of male births increases. Nature thus restores the balance of sexes. We have known parents, some of them longing for girls while others want boys for keeping up their family traditions and for continuance of their lines. This will be so ly in cases of inheritance and succession to thrones and large landed and financal estates.
Many wars and bloodshed were the results of kings and queens having no sons to succeed them. In almost all the countries the dynasties were kept up through sons. Matriarchy forms an exception. It was found out by experiment that a high acid secretion was frequently responsible for sterility in the female. When douche were applied in the form of sodium bicarbonate, where there were no.
The pregnancy developed after the next period and in every case the child was a boy. Professor Nicolai Konstantinovitch of Moscow discovered an electric treatment which separates and segregates the male and female spermatozoa. It is said that children of either sex may be obtained by using chromosomes of the opposite sex in artifical impregnation.
Natural spermatozoa are deposited in the curved end of the tube filled with a physiological solution. A slight electrical current draws the male and female cells opposite ends of the tubes. The male spermatozoa are drawn to the anodes or the side wh-,re the current enters the tube, and the female sperms to the cathodes, where the current leaves. Here is a feminine physiological habit which in some ways at present clearly understood closely corresponds to the movements of the Moon. The theory is, that if fertilised when first discharged from the ovary the ovum is female in tendency while later as the ovum ages it becomes male, so that fertilisation between the 3rd and the 5th days after menstruation is liable to produce a girl, between the 5th and 8th days, a boy or a girl, and between the 8th and 12th days a boy.
We have evidence that certain physiological habits curiously correspond to the lunar dai!
It has been suggested by the mighty Darwin that since life apparently originated on the beaches of primordial sea where it was alternately covered and uncovered by the lides, through countless ages, certain life rhythms and physiological habits were formed in all living creatures to correspond with those tidal rhythms, which irr-their turn were regulated by the Sun and the Moon.
The primitive cell, which was the cradle of the life-force, at that time went through alternating period of activity and quiescence. The scientific name for these two physiological phases is Katabolism and Anabolism. Physiologically Anabolism and Katabolism correspond to maleness and femaleness. These facts lead to some interesting conclusions about sex as possibly determined not merely by the time of the lunar month, but by the time of the lunar day at which conception takes place. Here all the greatest scientists on matters of conception and sex formation are agreed on the physiological effects of cycles of lunar days and lunar months.
We shall now quote from our astrological literature, what they have unanimously said about the appearances of menses, how the foetus develops in the womb, in what month the sex is formed, how the sex of the unborn child in the womb can be known and by what methods the sex of the child may be changed as per desire of the parents.
Occassionally one reads in papers about the reversal or change of sex to a certain degree even in adults. This phenomenon has been actually witnessed by Prof. Suryanarain Rao and of late it is becoming common. In the history of science the ancient Hindus occupy a foremost place because thousands of years ago. Of course, it is a fashion with those who have received the European system of education of laugh at things they cannot-explain with the aid of their own pet theories. Charaka, the great Hindu physician, has dwelt at length with the question of change of sex.
The ancients had not only studied the theory but they have given us practical rules whereby the sex of the unborn child in the womb may be known in advance and changed, if so desired. Ceremonies are actually laid down in theVedas for performance by the father and the mother with a view to give the child in the womb the sex that is desired. These rites are called pwnsavana. The etymology of the word is: pung male syate is produced anena by this ; in other words the male-producing rite.
These rites are performed even unto this day by every orthodox Hindu. Pumsavana is performed just after the expiration of three months from date of conception. Before giving further details about Pumsavana Jet us bring to the attention of the readers an interesting phenomenon which recently happened in Europe. Andreas Sparre, a Danish painter, married at the age of 20, a student artist studying in a like academy as his in Paris. A few years later Andreas Sparre happened to dress up in fun as a woman.
The clothes suited him and he looked like a girl. One of his friends called him Lili and he liked this name. Soon afterwards Andreas began to feel that Lili was after all a real individual — a separate personality, e11sting within himself. Gradually, this second personality pushed to the background, his maleness. Andreas experienced bleeding from the mouth and nose and this was regarded as a form of menstruation.
Of course there was a psychological change too that he was becoming moreand more feminine. With the passing of time a conviction grew in his mind that though male in his outward form, internally he possessed the female sexual organs. Physicians and surgeons whom he consulted could not offer any explanation for his dual personality.
Today, astrologers tend to say Uranus represents the need for freedom, originality, sudden changes and new possibilities, the possibility of chaos, the unexpected, innovation, our desire to be unique, liberated, and radical. It also represents genius and eccentricity, invention and original ideas. E ccentric, electric, and changeable, being a mixture, or essence, of all the planets.
HOROSCOPE: Week Of September 8, | Greater Los Angeles
Displays eccentricity, abruptness, originality, genius, and superior refinement and subtlety of ideas. Marc Edmund Jones : Uranus, in its indication of independence, brings social reality to the point of individual opportunity. Uranus is essentially a planet of deviation in a highly creative sense, actually inoperative in any area of conscious experience unless there are elements in the individual life which are somehow challenging to the entire context of a modern world. It provides the measure of originality and genius. Karen Hamaker-Zondag : Uranus stands for the factor in man which, for the sake of self-determination, is all too ready to break up the old patterns, kept in existence by the Saturn function, in order to replace them by patterns and forms which will give the psyche more room for development.
Scope for unrestricted and unconditional self-expression is a prerequisite for those with a strong Uranus function, and it can give rise to eccentric behavior in either a constructive or destructive sense, when combined with the urge to break through forms. Robert Hand : Uranus intrudes with an energy that is unexpected and often disruptive. Uranus energies strive to break one out of patterns that have become too rigid Along with Neptune, it is associated with alternative states of consciousness. In order to deal with Uranus, detachment is necessary.
One must not be wedded to any status quo. Western astrologers use Neptune to represent illumination, illusions, disillusions, and delusions as well as spiritual seeking and mystical truths. Neptune rules dreams and visions, self-sacrifice, charity, religion, the intangible, confusion, escapism, deception, glamour, drugs, addictions, merging or uniting, compassion, and lack of boundaries. Esoteric astrologers consider Neptune the higher octave of Venus and place strong emphasis on its representation of spiritual possibilities.
Alan Leo : Of Neptune He tends to render the nature sensuous and dreamy when prominent in a horoscope, and when afflicted gives a decided tendency to fraud. Undoubtedly, he acts as a malefic upon the majority. Marc Edmund Jones : Neptune identifies that point in the horoscope where the individual is under the greatest necessity to do what the group as a whole wishes him to do, or where any extreme of co-operation or allegiance is demanded of him by other people in general.
Thus Neptune Karen Hamaker-Zondag : The Neptune factor signifies a refining of existing psychic contents. In particular, the emotional aspects of experience and the range of experience undergo a change. Universal love, understanding, warmth and human dedication are typical of Neptune and so the planet has come to be treated as a higher octave of Venus. It is the source in man from which the gifted artist and the devoted religious or secular leader draw their inspiration. Robert Hand : Neptune eludes definition because it is associated with aspects of the universe that are unclear, illusory, delusory, ill-defined, and even imaginary.
Neptune may also signify both an ideal and an illusion of the perfectly ideal. Astrologically, Pluto has come to rule the unconscious mind, deep instincts, and the underworld. It represents the power to create as well as the power to destroy. It symbolizes the power of radical transformation and revolution.
