“Vijay why are you so obsessed with Saturn, Rahu and Ketu?” asked one of my close friends. “There are other ‘more positive’ planets in the solar system, you know. Why don’t you given them even half the time you devote to the study of these dark ones? You need to get some of your focus on happy planets like Jupiter and Venus.” Said my friend in a tone that was part wit, part nag, and part a serious suggestion. May be she had been witnessing some of my dark Saturn moods often.
However, her question made me give out a chuckle. And in my typical dry Capricorn humor I asked, her “If you are invited to a marriage, who would you focus on, the marriage party or the groom?”
“Of course the Groom. What kind of question was that?” She said with an air of indignation.
“That’s what I am doing…focusing on the groom. THE BIG 3: SATURN RAHU AND KETU ARE GROOMS of the planetary system, rest of them are just Baraatees (marriage party).” I said rubbing my hands in glee, as I was about to give her some shocking stats.
“Come on, that’s too much.” She protested uneasily sensing that I had something up my sleeve.
“Okay, so I can bet my car, you contacted me when you were undergoing a period of one of these three, may be two.” I said with a smile.
“Oh, yes Ketu-Saturn. That was long back. You still remember?” She gave out an exclamation.
“No, I just guessed.”
“How did you…”
“Elementary my dear Watson, 90% of people who contact me are undergoing a period of one of these three, Rahu, Ketu, or Saturn.” I said in a nonchalant way.
She gave out a shriek realizing that her husband came to me in Rahu period, and then she counted every client she brought to me in last one year and BANG…there was one or more of the BIG 3. All of them were undergoing a mahadasha or antardasha of one and often two of them.
She laughed like crazy as I threw example after example proving my point. I tried the same exercise on my whatsapp astrology group, same results. 90% of them had approached me during a period of one or more of the BIG 3. Same was the trend for clients of my father and uncle.
SO DEAR READER: IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO CALL ME FOR CONSULTATION, I AM VIRTUALLY WILLING TO BET THAT THERE IS A 90% CHANCE THAT YOU ARE RUNNING A PERIOD OF RAHU, KETU OR SATURN.
See, I told ya…!
