Guru: Shri N Sundara Rajan


. Sundara Rajan's name needs no introduction; he started astrology in 1956, created one of the first astrology softwares, has written more than 1000 articles since 1963 in Dr Ramans magazine and others, has published 4 books, created the Vincity ephemeris, his ayanamsa is called the Sundara Rajan Ayanamsa adopted by 2 international softwares. Although Shri Sundara Rajan has numerous stunning world predictions to his credit but he is phenomenally humble man which only shows the grace of Rishis.

Q.1 Rahu and Ketu in Scorpio and Taurus respectively implies that they are in debilitation. (Though some difference of opinions are there among various texts in this regard). In Tamil Nadu, one astrological proverb is in vogue as "Neechanai Neechan parthal nithiyum undu, pathiyum undu", which means "If a debilitated planet aspects another debilitated planet all the wealth ensured". On line with this the debilitation of nodes is a blessing. Is it astrologically correct? Question by R. Ramanathan, India Shri N Sundara Rajan: Rahu and Ketu will always be in the 7th from each other and will be, aspecting each other. The Neecha houses for rahu and ketu are debatable as these two are not Strictly planets and as such do not own any house. This proverb does not seem to be supported by any astrological book of antiquity. Q.2 If a debilitated planet gets vargothamamsa, how to deal with the planet? Whether predominance should be given as strength considering their vargothamamsa or as weakness considering their debilitation both in Rasi and Navamsa? Question by R. Ramanathan, India Shri N Sundara Rajan: Standard astrological texts like Phaladeepika say that it should be considered as weak. But the safe and correct way is to consider a planet as strong or weak, based on its Shadbala Rupas. Q.3 If a planet in a Rasi Sandhi, say at the last degree of a sign but because of his disposition considered as Atmakaraka. Here, whether he can be considered week since he is in Rasi Sandhi or strong as he is the Supreme Atmakaraka? – Question by R. Ramanathan 213
