Match Making by Himanshu Shangari

In this article we will discuss about some of the important aspects an astrologer should analyze before predicting a good match between two persons. But first let's find out about a couple of popular methods adopted for Match Making or Compatibility in the western countries and India.

When it comes, to compatibility or match making, Sun Signs are given a great importance in the west. The concept of compatibility on the basis of Sun Signs has become so popular in the west that even common people are found talking about it and asking questions about it. Like I'm a Leo, Am I compatible with a Virgo? Are Capricorns a good match for Geminis or not? Males with which Sun Sign are the best and Males with which Sun Sign are the worst and likewise which Sun Sign females are the best and which one are the worst. So much talk about compatibility and only the placement of Sun is considered or sometimes the placement of Venus is also considered. And many people believing in this theory only depend on some set dates of every month to predict the Sun Sign of a person and do not actually bother to take a look at the horoscope and check whether the Sun is placed in the sign indicated by the dates or not. And this becomes more important when the Sun is leaving one Sign and entering another Sign. In this case the Sun Sign of a person predicted just by considering his date and month of birth may not be his actual Sun Sign i.e the sign in which the Sun is placed in his horoscope or natal chart. And coming back to the compatibility analysis made by looking at Sun Signs alone, this is perhaps a concept which uses a very limited scope of astrology which is otherwise a very vast science and has so much more to offer than just one sign, in my opinion. I mean how can you divide the all the people of the world in 12 categories and then follow a very simple maths to calculate the compatibility. It simply doesn't work this way. There are a great number of people in the world having different personalities and characters even with the same Sun Sign. So it does not make much sense to predict the nature of a person or compatibility of a person to the other person based on one sign alone. Each and every planet, sign and aspect of the horoscope should be checked for their good or bad effects, the strength of the good and the bad Yogas formed in the horoscope and the time of impact of these Yogas should also be checked before predicting any match making. I have witnessed many cases where the matches were made on the basis of Sun Signs alone and in spite of being fully compatible according to the theory of Sun Signs, they fell flat as the most important factors ruling Marriage and Compatibility in their horoscopes were not favorable for the couples. So once again, I would emphasize on the importance of analyzing the complete horoscopes of both the parties involved before predicting any matches or compatibility.

And now let's move on to the most popular belief for match making in Indian astrology. This is probably the most touchy and one of the most predominent beliefs in Hindu Marriage System known as Guna Milaan for Match Making. In this system the natal placement of the Moon is seen in both the Horoscopes and then points known as Gunas are assigned on the basis of matching of the following descriptions in the Horoscopes :

1. Varana 2. Vasya 3. Tara 4. Yoni 5. Graha Maitri 6. Gana 7. Bhakut 8. Nadi

The points or Gunas are assigned out of a maximum of 36 and a score below 18 is not considered good for Match Making whereas the Match is considered better and better as the Gunas increase in number. 36 out of 36 would be a complete match according to this system, and then the Gunas from 35 to 30 are considered very very good, 30-25 is very good to good and then 25-20 is considered acceptable. The system works this way and if the Gunas are a higher number, the Match is said to be a good Match and if the Gunas are a lower number, the Match is not considered a good Match.

This system has been continuing since the ancient times and with all due respects to the methods and techniques of this system, I do agree to this system. But my question is whether this system alone is sufficient for predicting a happy Married life or not. In my opinion, it is not sufficient alone just like in the case of Sun Signs. It can be and should be used as a supplementary system in addition to some other very important Aspects which are to be seen and analyzed from both the Horoscopes to predict the match accurately. We shall now take a look at these aspects of Match Making which should be given their due importance if a happy Marital life is to be predicted.

First of all, an Astrologer should check whether there are the signs of a happy Marital life in both the Horoscopes. For example if one of the Horoscopes is indicating a probable divorce or a second marriage or in the worst case it is indicating a long disease or even death of the spouse due to the presence of a major defect or bad yoga like Manglik Dosh or Kaal Sarp Dosh, then in spite of a very high number of Gunas, the Match is not correct. Then longevity of both the partners in general, the financial stability and future of the earning partner or partners as seen from Horoscope, analysis of any major diseases to either of the partners if there are any, the ability of both the partners to produce a child and general compatibility of both the partners are some of the important aspects which are to be verified properly before predicting a Match Making. If these Aspects are ignored or the Astrologer does not know how to check them properly, the Match Making is not correctly predicted in my opinion.

I have seen the Horoscopes of many married couples who were assigned a number greater than 25 Gunas when they did the Match Making, yet their married life is very upset or in some cases the divorces had already been filed when one of the affected parties approached me. If the matching of Gunas alone was sufficient, then why did all these things happen. This is because of the fact that the Horoscopes were not compatible with each other on the most important grounds or Aspects mentioned above. I will explain this concept further with the help of a of a couple of case studies.

When the parents of a Male approached with the Horoscope of both their son and a girl whom their son was in love with and wanted to marry, it was told after the analysis of the Horoscopes that all other aspects of Match Making were good but the girl should be suffering from some serious problem in the region near her Uterus and due to this problem she may not be able to conceive a child and in future she may face some serious disease in the Uterus region. It was also told that this problem could be controlled or even cured with the help of some specific Gemstones as it was still in the early stages. When the parents of the boy inquired about this problem from some relative of the girl, they came to know that the girl was currently suffering from a serious irregularity of Periods and was experiencing pain and excessive bleeding. Now the girl is wearing the Gemstones and she has recovered a great deal from her previous condition and is getting better and better as the time is going by. And the couple is marrying in the very near future.

Mentioning one more case of a male who is around 50 and has already married 3 times, with one wife getting divorced and the rest of the two dying with serious diseases. And all the three Matches were made by Guna Milaan alone. This male wanted to marry for the fourth time, and was told to wear some Gemstones and do some remedies or otherwise face the same consequences in the fourth marriage in spite of passing the Guna Milaan test. His would be wife was also told to wear a couple of Gemstones and do some astrological remedies to survive the marriage as this man's Horoscope was indicating serious troubles in married life, divorce or even death of the spouse because of the presence of a strong Kaal Sarp Dosh in his horoscope which was primarily affecting his marred life and due to which one of his wives got divorced (whom I consider lucky) and the other two died with serious diseases.

To summarize it is advised that match making or compatibility should be predicted only after analyzing both the horoscopes completely, keeping the most important factors to be checked in mind.

Do Not Sneer At Astrological Match Compatibility Reports by Carlton Leigh

Astrological match is nothing more then the use of astrology to figure out whether two individuals can exist together in harmony or not. For the many that believe in astrology, astrology compatibility is an extremely important match-making pointer. It is possible to take advantage of the compatibility reports to determine if your relationship with your loved one is going to be discordant or harmonious, whether it will be filled with cheerfulness and reciprocated understandings or full of needless stress, spats and arguments.

One of the ways to establish astrological compatibility is through the zodiac sign. These signs are linked to the four traditional elements - known as fire, earth, water and air - which pass on their properties to those that share the zodiac sign with them.

The qualities of fire is represented in those whose sign is Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, air is visible in Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini; water is found in Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo, and finally, earth is revealed in Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

The compatibility of these traditional elements will decide the compatibility of zodiac signs too. An example being as earth is most compatible with water, therefore people belonging to the signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo with share a more preferable match ratio with folks belonging to the signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. However, they will not be as compatible with the remaining sun signs, and therefore necessary to make certain concessions and fine-tuning to ensure that the relationship will work. Similarly, air would not be compatible with fire. This means that people with a zodiac sign of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius will surely mix better with others whose zodiac signs are Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini.

There is a variety of astrology reports. You can have your astrology compatibility tested with any relationship that you may be in, including your business partners or friendship forecast. Much will depend on how you use astrological match compatibility reports.

Greetings Brethren,

Peace be unto you. We bring you greetings from our Father God Almighty and His son our Savior Christ Jesus, blessed also is the Holy Spirit that moves and guides us the straight and often narrow way. As we continue our sojourn all along the Watch Tower we look out and see that Michael Jackson was "The Greatest Entertainer of all Times." Muhammad Ali was (is) the greatest Heavy Weight fighter and champion of all times. However some would dispute this however none come disputing that Michael Jackson was a musical genius the world has never seen.

It is also written that the good outweighs the bad. There was once a leader of a Black Nationalist organization that cleaned up countless Black men and women from drugs, vice and lives of crime. He was charged never convicted with infidelity and promiscuous behavior bearing children out of wed-lock however the good crushed the bad and one has to be real and just as sure as the wind blows. There was also a great martyred Civil Rights leader that was also charged with the unfaithfulness as he also was alleged to have slept with women other than his wife. But there was nothing else to report as this great man became one of the greatest humanitarian leaders of all times. Recently a former NFL Quarterback was murdered and it seems to imply that he had an extra martial relationship with a woman that was found slain beside his body. However he gave back to the community and from all accounts had a sincere heart of love for the community and all people. This most likely was one of his problems as many people cannot separate love and kindness from an alleged state of weakness.

Meanwhile with the passing of Michael Jackson who has moved from the lowly ranks as the "King of Pop" to the "Greatest Entertainer of all Times" has shook up the world. No one in the history of mankind has attracted the media frenzy and the unprecedented outpouring of sentiments of love as did Michael Jackson when he departed this life June 25, 2009. I am reminded of Sammy Davis Jr. as being a multi-talented entertainer. Although his talent was extraordinary he did not live in the same era as Michael Jackson. Nor did Mr. Davis have the world-wide appeal as Michael Jackson. Therefore are there any parallels with Michael Jackson and President Barack Obama?

Is there something to be learned in the election of Barack Obama to the office of president and his world-wide appeal and the world-wide appeal of Michael Jackson? Are racial barriers falling as we speak as people are becoming more aware of the mood of love and mutual cooperation among the people of the world for the survival of humankind? Meanwhile we would be remiss here if we did not note the following. Is President Barack Obama on the way to being "The Greatest President of all Times?" Stay focused and follow the Spirit. We declare then you will then be able to see as much as the blind man who is not as blind as you may think.

We Remember Michael

Beloved no one knows the burden of another man. Who can speak of what sent one to cosmetic surgeons? But most know that show business has always presented beauty and good looks as only skin deep. However Michael had love deep inside and this is what we saw on the outside.

Never did he defect from his race, his culture as no one ever denied that his lineage back to "The Land of the Blacks" gave him the instincts to move as no other had ever moved in dance filled with songs that penetrated all races and broke down any barriers as to language, custom as the tradition of love is universal.

I saw someone as they reached back to try to claim something from a lost childhood and to show love to those young at heart. So much so that there was a dream that became true at "Never- Land" as here was a paradise for the young and the not so young. I remember also the great feeling to know that Michael came from my community. He made us proud.

He also instilled pride in our hearts and minds as he spoke to the world and the world listened. What demons follow success as the vultures look around every corner giving bad advice seeking to devour the young and the sincere at heart. But we declare as it is written that there is no heart stolen that is pure and sincere.

We remember and I remember Michael that genius is always mis- understood. Also we come realizing that those that conform to all things are never noted as great thinkers and any contributions that follow are limited and bland soaked in the ordinary that is boring even for the slow tortoise as the fleet of foot and mind go by in a flash and taking in the Wind.

Peace and Golden Paradise, Carl A. Patton a willing slave and servant of Almighty God and Christ Jesus writing for the FreedomJournal Press a God Fearing Free Press 16 July 2009 in the year of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.

Do Miracles Really Happen? Read This Miraculous Story by Michael Lee

A lot of people believe that miracles really happen. Of course, these things don't just happen to everybody. Sometimes, it's just the story of a friend of a friend. Other times, it's a story from a total stranger.

Personally, I believe in the existence of miracles. There are a great many stories out there that tell of such impossible feats and experiences. Sometimes, these miracles appear in the form of one's faith in God. Sometimes, these miracles appear in the form of one's strong will.

But do miracles really happen?

Miraculous True Story Of A Mother and Her Children

Stories of miracles performed by God are not uncommon. However, one never gets tired of reading or hearing about His miracles.

This particular story is that of a mother and her twins. One is a boy and the other is a girl. When the mother gave birth to these two special children, everything seemed to be okay. However, as months passed, she noticed that while her male child was growing like a normal baby should, her female child wasn't. The latter was unresponsive and couldn't even eat properly or manage a crawl.

The mother took her kid to the hospital where the baby girl was diagnosed as being hypotonic. According to the doctor, her development was three months behind her twin brother. The possibility of normalcy seemed low. Would she be able to crawl, much less walk? It seemed too much to comprehend.

Do Miracles Really Happen When You Have Faith in God?

One's faith in God has been known to make miracles happen. Such events have been recorded in the bible. Even now, God's healing powers seem to know no bounds.

The mother prayed hard to God for her baby to get well. Her faith was strong. Lo and behold, the next morning, her baby girl seemed different. She was much more responsive than she had ever been in the last few months. The mother took her baby back to the hospital where they couldn't find anything wrong with her. The doctor couldn't pinpoint what exactly made her better either.

Of Miracles and Such

So does this answer the question, "Do miracles really happen?" The answer to that depends on how much faith you have in the greater power. Miracles can happen through a divine intervention or law of attraction. Sometimes, man is used as an instrument of change.

Some doctors, despite their scientific background, also believe in miracles. In their profession, it's hard to miss when something biologically impossible happens. When a person on a deathbed suddenly gets better... When a child diagnosed with very weak muscles suddenly becomes normal in 24 hours...

If after this article, you still remain a skeptic, why don't you try reading more stories of healing and miracles? If you still don't believe that miracles really happen, perhaps now is not yet your time. Perhaps one day, when you yourself witness a miracle or have one happen to you, that is the time when you'll learn to believe.

Embracing the Shadow - Inner Peace Tip by Catherine VanWetter, MSW

Debbie Ford, who wrote the book, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, has finished a movie called "The Shadow'. It was released June 26, 2009 and is available for purchase. It is a movie well worth watching.

I have been following Debbie's work for years and had the opportunity to meet her at the Chopra Center in LaJolla, California, and again at the Coronado Hotel in California. Debbie's workshops focuses on that part of ourselves that we push away and that we are ashamed of. It's that part of our self that we don't like and try to hide. The shadow is sneaky and can show up as a sarcastic remark, as judgment, or in criticism. When uncovered, it often laughs, as if to soften the edges of being dishonest, cruel or unfaithful.

Carl Jung, a psychoanalysis, coined the phrase shadow to describe those places in us that are often buried deep in our unconscious. The parts of our self that we try to forget about and hope that no one sees it. Everyone has a shadow. Whenever we are not in love, joy or light, we are in the shadow.

I work with individuals and groups who want to uncover their shadow thus shedding some light onto it. They have come to a place in their life where the shadow part of them brings them so much grief and pain, that they want to get to the core of it. It takes courage to do this depth of work because we often go into those places in us that we would just as soon ignore but that keep coming up, reminding us of their existence. It's like having a thorn in our side. We're aware that it is there and yet it is illusive and shows up as addictions, distractions, anxiety and depression, to name just a few.

Throughout my years of training and self-healing, I have begun to come to a place of peace within myself, and my shadow. My sense is that the shadow's initial intention was to protect us. One of the ways that the shadow did this was to help us feel that we were connected to those around us and that we had something in common with others. We could talk negatively of someone, gossip, and "puff" ourselves up because we thought that we were better than the one that was being ridiculed. Yet, that part that we didn't like in someone else often was a part in us that we didn't like. This is where the ego plays a huge part in the shadow. If we are proven wrong, the ego expands, and if we are successful in hiding our shadow it expands as well. Often people who begin to get in touch with their shadow may have the dark night of the soul or several, where the parts of them that are no longer working show up in the middle of the night as they are trying to sleep. It's that anxiety attack that seemingly comes out of nowhere waking them from a deep peaceful slumber.

As one begins to notice the shadow and shed compassion light on it, then the true work of resolving that part can occur. Until we have compassion for that part of our self and become aware of it, as a witness, we will not be able to embrace it. The shadow shows us duality. With the dark is the light. There are saints and there are sinners. This duality allows us to see the contrast that we walk in everyday. It's finding the balance and honoring all of our self, especially the shadow. By doing this we can heal that shadowy part that has kept us from our pure essence of light, love and joy.

The times that we are in are challenging and as a result are activating many people's shadows. It's showing up as road rage, pervasive anxiety, violence, corruption, and betrayal. The shadow is appearing in ways that is evasive and often sneaks up on us when we are not conscious, when we're stressed out or tired. To become aware of our shadow and how it shows up our life is to begin noticing it. It's in the noticing that we can begin to come to terms with it, and to begin to heal that part of our self that has been deeply wounded. Give yourself permission to begin this sacred healing through gentle noticing and deep awareness. You may be very surprised at the gems you find deep within your shadows.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Trans-Siberian Goodwill Tour by Linda Wieland

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Trans-Siberian Tour members deliver workshops in the Buryat Republic

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers Trans-Siberian Goodwill Tour has completed it's stay in Ulan-Ude, the capital of the Buryat Republic in south-central Siberia. For several months the tour has been providing workshops, seminars and one-on-one help in the region.

Teachers at a secondary school who attended a workshop on Study Technology thought what they learned would greatly benefit their students and the community at large. The workshop covered fundamental laws on learning, researched and discovered by L. Ron Hubbard. One teacher was surprised how much this applied to her students' ability to perform music. Another teacher said the information would improve her students' performance and she was grateful it was being made broadly available through the work of the Goodwill Tour.

The tour provides workshops on the many subjects covered in the Scientology Handbook, including how to cope with problems at work, how to improve relationships, raise happy children and achieve one's goals in life.

L. Ron Hubbard once wrote, "If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a Volunteer Minister and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance." The Trans-Siberian Goodwill Tour is one of ten Goodwill Tours dedicated to accomplishing this purpose, bringing help to people in remote areas. For more information visit the Scientology Volunteer Ministers web site.

Scientology Course on the Human Mind Delivered in Romania by Linda Wieland

With interest high in Scientology and Dianetics a course called "The Anatomy of the Human Mind" met with great success in Timisoara, Romania.

The publication last fall of 9 Scientology and Dianetics books in Romanian has ignited tremendous interest in the subject of the human mind. Add to that the presence in the country of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers European Goodwill Tour, and demand for Scientology and Dianetics courses was inevitable.

In answer to the many requests for more information, a course was presented called "The Anatomy of the Human Mind Course." It was held in the city of Timisoara, Romania to a packed house and covered basic concepts of the Scientology religion. The course was based on a series of lectures first delivered by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard in December 1960 and January 1961.

The course contains a precise description of the mind, how the mind works, its components, and its relationship to the individual. It addresses such things as improving memory, how past instances of pain and painful emotion affect one's life in the present and how to eradicate these ill effects.

Copies of the original lectures by L. Ron Hubbard are available in English and 15 other languages through New Era Publications Incorporated in Europe and Bridge Publications for the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia and Oceania.
