Have you ever had an astrology reading that just blew your mind? I know astrology has that effect on people. But its no magic. Here’s a list of 101 astrology tricks that always work – they are not only inspired from what I’ve learned about astrology over the years but also from the astrology readings of people I’ve met in person.
Let’s start with first impressions. Do you see that number in the first box of the birth chart (see the image below) – that number in the box labelled H1. In this case it is number 11, Got it? Ok so that number actually defines what first impression you leave on people.
They are perhaps the ,most ambitious of the lot. They also have a quick temper and a bit moody. And they are always in a hurry, so never make them wait or they’ll totally ignore you.
They are probably the ones who like to look their best all the time. They are also the ones who are a bit stubborn. Good luck! Changing their mind.
The first thing about these people is that they talk a lot or have a lot of interesting ideas. So you’ll never feel bored in their company.
They are the most emotional of the lot. And they have a roundish physical appearance. Also if you are number 4 - don't be in hurry to get married wait for Saturn's return (trick 101)
They are perhaps the most attractive people around. And they are easy to spot. Imagine you are on a cliff overlooking a beach full of people. And there is one girl/guy you can’t keep your eyes off. That person is number 5 – they always stand out in the crowd. Also if you are number 5 - don't be in hurry to get married wait for Saturn's return (trick 101)
They come across as people who are always thinking, often giving the impression that they are solving some problems in their mind. Am sure you’ve had a conversation with a Number 6 person who appears to be listening to you but is actually planning his/her daily routine.
They are perhaps the most beautiful people around. And they are blessed with a calm and pleasant personality.
They are people who appear to be hiding something – they appear to be someone they are not and they always look sceptical of others. They are quick to spot if someone’s lying to them – so never cross a number 8.
They are the most adventurous of the lot. You make a travel plan and they’ll be first one to say yes. But they are also a bit aggressive and jump the gun at times.
They are the most disciplined of the lot. They’ll be always be on time and love to plan, but they are not as annoying as Number 6 can be.
There are always a bit unconventional. It may have to do with the way they look or the way they behave. They are also a bit detached from the world that gets people curious to know why they are the way they are.
They are yogis – they are the most detached of the lot. The have little love for material possessions and they are big on finding the real meaning to life. You’ll find a lot of spiritual gurus and yoga trainers as number 12
Now let’s talk about houses. There are 12 houses in a birth chart if you check the image below you’ll notice I am pointing to each one of them. So each house represents a section of our lives e.g. H1 – is about You, H2 – Family you are born, H3 – Communication skills/siblings H4 – Family you’ll start H5 – New beginnings H6 – Daily routine, H7 – Relationships/Marriage, H8 - Sudden events, H9 – Travel/Higher education, H10 – Career/Public life, H11 – Money, H12 – Everything foreign.
If you are this person there are two things that are easy to notice: 1. You are quite disciplined in life and 2. You don’t show your emotions too much.
So I’ve met so many people with this placement. And the one thing I’ve seen to be common is their desire to contribute to the society. So they are either working in the hospitality/services sector or involved with social work.
If you are this person - hold your horses, don’t be in a hurry to get married. You are going to extremely loyal in marriage and you deserve to be with someone really special. So take your time to find the right one. Don’t put yourself in difficult situations in relationships if it’s not happening move out your relationship.
You are perhaps the most hardworking person around. But don’t think of settling down in your career before the age of 30. Career will be really hard work in the early days – keep fighting. Keep taking those risks, changing jobs and careers until you find a profession you love because when you do you’ll know it’ll last.
The relationship with the siblings can be a bit difficult. But things will start to work out with time. So stop fighting with your siblings.
The world is about you, isn’t it? This placement is great for your professional goals but doesn’t go well with personal relationships so give your relationship the respect they deserve.
You are a bit stubborn, isn't it? It's ok to hold on to what you believe. Also, you may inherent wealth from the family especially from the father.
You want to have the last word in every argument, isn’t it? You may think you are always right but be open to possibility that maybe you are not.
So relationships are between 2 equals, isn’t it? But you may have a tendency to focus on yourself more than your partner. Try to balance the equation.
I don’t know what you do and what position you hold. But one day, when the time comes you’ll be a leader – you are meant to be, just work towards it.
This is a difficult placement for the Sun and it may cause a temporary separation from the father. Also don't take your friends and colleagues for granted.
You are quite good looking, ain’t you? Also you are blessed with a pleasant and charming personality – let others see it.
Do you have a beautiful house? I bet you do. Even if you are living in a rented apartment with just a room to yourself. You’ll make sure you make that room as beautiful as possible. Also if you are a man, you'll attract a spouse that'll make your life more beautiful. You can thank me later.
You are going to be blessed with a beautiful spouse. You can thank me later. Also you have a great sense of design and proportion - if you are doing something creative in life, you are in the right profession.
You may have difficult relationships early in life. And so what if some of them didn’t work out. Give it time, because when you find the right person it’ll all be worth the wait.
I don’t know what you do but if you are finding a right career for you then do something creative or take up a work that lets you express your creative side.
Money should be the least of your problems. Even if you are struggling with money right now. Be on a look out Venus’ time period and you’ll see your financial problems go away in no time.
There is a high possibility of you getting married to someone from a different country. So you haven't found the one - take a trip!
You are quite feisty isn’t it? Don’t let your overzealous passionate drive run over your relationships.
You get hurt when people don’t agree with you isn’t it. You may be right but don’t get into heated arguments – take it easy.
You are a creative person especially with things you do with your hands. You may have many love affairs early in life - no judgement here.
Don’t read about all the non-sense written about this combination on the internet. Mars in this house just means you are a bit passionate in relationships; it’s not a bad thing at all. Just be wary of not letting your passion turn into aggression.
You are excellent with individual projects – you inspire people around you, isn’t it? Try to find a career that lets you work independently.
Even though you are excellent at making money, you can be equally good at spending it. So take it easy and save some money for the rainy day.
You are going to travel the world. Gaining knowledge through travel is your life’s purpose, so if you are busy planning your next trip, it's understandable! Also this is the best house for Jupiter – It’s a blessing!
While this is great for your married life, especially if you are a woman. But you may have unrealistic expectations from your partner. It’s not a bad idea to get a reality check.
Firstly I think you are one who is going to read this article till the very end. You are very interested in astrology, isn’t it? Also you are very aware of the harmful effects of drugs and addiction. You’ll never get into bad habits.
Career should be the least of your worry. You have the knowledge and the wisdom to work around any difficulty in your career. Be on a look out for Jupiter’s time period and you’ll see your career take-off.
So money should be the least of your concerns. You’ll find many opportunities to earn money in life. Also if you are a girl there is a possibility of you marrying a rich spouse.
This is a good placement to explore your spiritual side. Also if you are girl there is a possibility of you marrying someone from another country.
You have a joke or limerick for every occasion, no? You are a fast thinker and always take the smart lane to everything you do. I’d love to be your friend.
You are known for your witty comments and jokes. And at the same time people are a bit afraid of getting into a debate with you. Not because you are aggressive or rude but because you really good with words.
Do you cry when you a sad movie? I bet you do. Your emotions are on the edge more than others. Also you may have a roundish appearance, do you?
You have the most creative mind around – make full use of it. If you get an opportunity to write or speak in public or showcase your talent – just take it and see how people fall for you.
You’ll yearn for a relationship at early age. So you might get married early in life, which is not a bad idea.
There is a reason why your inner voice is asking you to focus on yourself. Yes! focus on your skills, talents, your career, and your life. You can be a legend. Relationships and other people can wait.
Don’t just blurt things out when you are angry – be conscious that your words hurt. Try to let go of things. Also you are a bit restless so if you want to take those unplanned trips, we’ll understand.
You may have difficulty getting married – I am not saying you won’t get married. I am saying you may either find it difficult to find the right partner or find it difficult to get married to the one you love. But your problems to get married will sort out with time.
Isn’t career the most important thing for you? The stars want you to focus on your career. So make the most of your time and be the best you can be in your professional life.
So, money is the least of your problems in your life but spend your money in moderation. Also you are one of theose who can have those unexpected gains in income.
So, give relationships a rest when you are in your 20s. Your life’s purpose is finding yourself and not getting married early and starting a family. Take it easy. If you are not feeling right about your relationship then don’t burden yourself.
You really don’t believe in getting preached by someone. Well! no one does but you really really dislike being preached. Aren’t you the one questioning the teaching methods of your professors in college or the one questioning government, authority and social conventions? But you have your own set of beliefs, which is a great thing.
The ups and downs in your career will settle down with time. But the worst thing that you can do is to give up on your career/job for a small reason like not getting promoted on time or not getting a project you wanted – just fight it out.
You’ll find it difficult to get a regular flow of income going. So when you have things going for you – don’t give up. Also if you have a lot of money – you’ll have a tendency to give it away for charity, really cool – my paypal id is firstname.lastname@example.org ;)
The one thing that I don’t describe in the personality assessment on farfaraway is the conjunction of planets. By conjunction I mean two planets placed close to each other in the birth chart. Check out the image below – there is a Mercury, Jupiter conjunction, can you see? There is also a Moon & Venus, Venus & Rahu, and Moon and Rahu conjunction.
So conjunctions have an interesting impact, here are few of them
This is my favourite because these people never seem to age – they keep looking the same for many. They are also very passionate in romantic relationships.
So if you have this combination. Don’t get married in a rush. Just take your time to find the right person. Also, you may be attracted to someone much older than you.
I know how much you like to analyse things. But don’t burn yourself out with little details – take it easy.
You may get to live the dream, you may go on a trip outside your country and meet your future spouse. You are quite likely to get married to someone from another culture or religion.
You are bundle of energy. You are extremely independent and focussed on self that teamwork is perhaps the last thing in your mind. This is a great for someone doing his/her own thing and not have a team to manage or a boss to report to.
You are a bit of a daredevil. You know those adrenaline junkies you see on youtube they have this combination. You are known to jump on just about any challenge but don’t let people take advantage of this.
You are perfect for anything that requires a lot of courage and a discipline such as the armed forces or sports, which great. Muhammad Ali had this combination - check it out
You have a creative mind and naturally very charming. Rarely are people born with this combination so make full use of your creative ability. Brad Pitt has this conjunction – just fyi
You are a bit of a hot head, ain’t you? Don’t get into arguments or debates, learn to let go of things.
People with this conjunction seem to get things right almost every time. Can you recall planning to do something really stupid and one of your friend guides you to not do it. That wise old guy has the Moon – Jupiter conjunction, listen to that friend.
Ok! I am going to just say it. There is a devil inside you. Now that you know it, please do a good job of hiding it. But sometimes you need the devil to push things along, isn't it?.
Just like there are 12 houses, there are also 12 signs. Check out the image below. I am pointing to each one of them below. Each of these signs has a personality and so they shape the personality of the planets placed in them.
Here are some interesting placements:
You get really competitive in everything you do. And you don’t take kindly to losing – don’t let your ego overpower you.
You are perhaps the most attractive people around – you’ll always be in the eyes of people and you’ll naturally attract followers.
You may feel a bit uncomfortable dealing with people. You think people don’t give you the respect you deserve, isn’t it? Now that you know thing, maybe you can be more considerate of others.
You are creative and you are going to attract money in life. So overall this is a great placement for you.
You are going to attract a beautiful spouse. You can thank me later.
You are a calm person but injustice brings out the warrior inside you. You fight for people who you think can’t fight for themselves. Mahatama Gandhi had this combination.
You are a health coach or a gym trainer ain’t you? These people are perhaps most knowledgeable about what to eat and how to stay healthy.
You are meant to learn a lot of new things in life so take a pick – start learning through travel or go for higher education.
Moody, aggressive, impulsive and known to forgive and forget at a blink of an eye. Make sure people know you well enough to know that you don’t mean the things you say sometimes.
You have such a creative mind – don’t get youself into a job or career that doesn’t let you express your creative side.
It’s all the details isn’t it? You have a strong case for an OCD. And you can also be guilty of finding faults. So you can be a bit annoying but everyone who is a perfectionist is a bit annoying, so we understand.
You don’t let others know what’s going on in your head isn’t it? You are a bit sceptical of others and take time to trust anyone. That’s all right - the world is scary place.
Ok so the devil inside you is constantly asking you jump to new things. Please don’t jump into an abyss.
It’s ok if your heart has broken in relationships. In the long run you’ll find someone you love and it’ll all be worth the wait.
The one thing about astrology that I’ve found to be most accurate is the planetary time periods. Here’s an article that describes them in detail. You can check out which time period are you running – use the image below for reference.
So I’ve seen a pattern with people running different time periods. Here’s a list:
So if you are going through a difficult time and feeling the burden of your personal or professional life – you might be running the time period of Saturn. So look for Saturn in time period #3 and look for its end date – that’s when things will look up. Everyone goes through such cycles in life – it’s not a big deal, every difficult time follows up with a good time
Its time period comes right after Ketu’s so if you had a hard time in relationships or money. Venus’ job is to help you recover you from your setback. Also if you are looking to get married - this is the time. The time of marriage calculator takes this into consideration.
I’ve never had anyone write to me saying that he/she is going through a difficult time and that person was running the time period of Jupiter. Jupiter is perhaps the most giving planet. I’ve seen people travel a lot and learn different things during its time period.
Its time period has many benefits but the one that stands out is its ability to create opportunities – so if you are looking to start a relationship, a job or a business. Mercury’s time period is really good for that.
So anyone who has ever achieved something dramatic in life has done it in the time period of Rahu. Rahu’s time period can take you to heights you never thought you’ll reach – Muhammad Ali is a perfect example. But its’ time period can also make you do things the world regrets – Adolf Hitler.
This is your time to shine. Whatever you are doing during its time period you’ll be the center of attraction. The downside is that Sun is an egoistic planet so be careful of dealing with the government and authorities.
Make a wish and just wait for Mars’ time period. And chances are your wish will be granted. Mars doesn’t take time either. It’s most effective right at the beginning. So if you are waiting for things to shake up in your career, make your move during Mars’ time period.
For a long time I use to dread its time period as it always caused a lot of drama in my life. But as I’ve come to know this planet I’ve started to realize it’s existence. Even though it detaches us from the house it sits in, it motivates us in a beautiful way to explore our true self.
People going through Moon's time period are often a bit confused. You'll get many opportunities in every aspect of life but you'll also have to make some tough choices. Moon's time period will test your mental strength.
Transits are interesting. If you checked out the time periods – you would have noticed that they last from anywhere between 15 days to 180 day. So for the longer time periods I use transits. The Daily horoscope calculator is based on this.
The transits of Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, Rahu and Ketu are quite important:
This is really good for your career. The career calculator takes this transit into account along with its time periods
There is a high possibility of gains in business or a hike in salary.
This is an interesting transit - there is a possibility of windfall gains during this time
Are you single? you are going to love this. There is every possibility of you meeting new people.
This could be a tough transit if you are starting a relationship. Why don't focus on yourself during this and give relationships a rest?
This transit can make you take those drastic steps in your career, so don't give up on your job/career during its transit.
So be careful with your money during this transit. It goes without saying to not quit your job or make huge investments at this time
The one thing I love about Saturn is that it is most loyal and committed planet of all planets. So Saturn's transit in the 7th house is a really transit good for you to get married.
So be prepared to slog it out at work during this transit - don't worry there are rich rewards waiting at the end.
I can bet on my life that you are going to travel a lot in life. Just look out for the time periods of these three planets (include Ketu) and you’ll find yourself travelling. Don’t bother planning in advance, situations in life will push you to make a trip.
Since we are talking about transits I have to talk about Saturn’s return. Having gone through it personally, I do think it's an important time especially if Saturn is influencing your career or marriage. So anyone between the age of 27.5 years to 30 years will be going through Saturn’s return. And I’ve heard many cases of people having a difficult time during this phase but also finding their path in life at the end. So if you are looking to get married or settling down in your career - just wait till you turn 30. That's when Saturn return!
