Close to a decade back I saw a toddler at one of my well wisher's (who happens to be an astrologer himself) house. Looking at the little girl, it was easy to visualise her horoscope, and I could not see any planetary combinations that will bring Raja Yogas for her. With a sunken heart I looked at my well wisher and asked, "what is the purpose of this child's existence. I cannot see any big luck or luxuries or prosperity coming into her life." And he replied, "she is my maid's daughter. And yeah you are right she doesn't have any Raja Yogas. But then everything happens, because God wants it to happen."
The planet Saturn moved into Thula (Libra) from Kanya (Virgo) in November 2011, and between November 2011 and February 2012 - there were many celebrity deaths. Nothing much happened in the months of March, April and May 2012 - and the ghazal King Mehdi Hassan died suddenly on June 18, 2012. Well astrologically Saturn retrograded - meaning moved back into Kanya (Virgo) and will stay there till July 2012 - hence the following events are very much possible in the months of June, July and August 2012....
I write the yearly predictions every year with utmost sincerity and just leave it there. I have never bothered to cross check it with mine or anyone else's lives ever. But this year I thought I would take two close people's lives into consideration and see how much of my prediction comes true for them. The first was my own sister and another was a close friend of mine - the former is born in the Ascendant of Makara and the latter is born in ascendant of Vrishika.
To become 'nonreactive' to a particular incident or people isn't easy when you know a bit too much about the future. It takes a lot of time and mental training to react in a way you never wanted to and still be happy about how you reacted.
