Effects of Combusted Venus


The phenomenon of combustion in Astrology signifies a planet getting too close to the Sun. Sun is a star and it has its own heat and light. Anything that gets close to the Sun would burn. Similar effects are felt by the planets when they get close to the Sun.

When the moon gets too close to the Sun we experience Amavasya which is due to combustion of Moon due to the Sun. Likewise, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, etc. all get combusted when they move very close to the Sun. Rahu and Ketu are free from the effects of combustion.

On 19th February 2013, Venus combusted in the east direction at around 12:29 pm. Currently Venus is transiting in Aquarius sign. Sun is transiting through Pisces at very close degrees to Venus, thereby causing combustion to Venus. It would get out of combustion on 21st April 2013 at around 04:05 pm.

A combusted planet has been defined as a “blind” planet and it fails to deliver its due results to the occupied house as well as the aspected house. All the significations and known results of the planet become weak.

Before understanding the effects of combusted Venus, we need to understand all the important aspects related to Venus. Venus is the key siginificator of marriage in Astrology. Whether a person would get married or not is analyzed by the position and strength of Venus in the horoscope. Likewise it is the planet that governs love, relationships, bonding in relationships and attraction among male/female gender. These are some factors that deliver happiness in everyone’s life. When Venus will get combusted by the Sun, these aspects in life would get weak temporarily.

The learned people say that the following activities should not be undertaken when Venus is combusted.

  • Construction and entering into new house
  • Prana Pratistha of idols of Gods/Goddesses
  • First visit to a holy place
  • First visit to a foreign country
  • Renunciation/Deeksha from the preceptor
  • Initiating/ending fasts etc

Regarding marriage there are many popular beliefs. Normally it is said that either of the two Gurus (meaning planets here) i.e. Jupiter (Brihaspati) and Venus (Shukra) should not be combusted or in sign of debilitation (extreme weakness). Right now Jupiter is not combusted and neither in the sign of its debilitation. So marriages can be conducted during this period.

What should be done during this period?
It is advisable that prayers should be offered to the governing deity of Venus i.e Goddess Lakshmi. Direct prayers to Venus would also be helpful to ease the negative impact of combustion.

Those who are married should try to maintain harmony in their day to day life. The female spouse has been termed as the “Lakshmi” of the house. So she should be respected and kept happy especially during this period.


Demystifying the Art of Palm Reading


Also known as Chiromancy, Palm reading has its roots in ancient Indian and Egyptian cultures. As an art that took form in East Asia, it has transcended borders and is now popular in many parts of the world.  Its success can be largely owed to the articulate and accurate nature of its predictions. The lines on the palm can accurately predict the past, present and even future events. Palm reading considers various aspects of the hand-the shape (cheirognom), the mounts (cheirosophy) and the lines and formations on the palm (cheiromancy).

 The shape of the hand plays an important role in determining a person’s character. It is the first thing that palm readers notice while conducting a palm reading analysis.

Here’s a brief on the five common hand shapes.

Shapes of the hand

Earth hand

Physical attributes– broad, square palms and fingers, thick and coarse skin with a pinkish tinge.

Typical characteristics

  • Headstrong and can get stubborn at times
  • Have a pragmatic outlook on life
  • Tend to be materialistic
  • Possess the capabilities to acquire wealth

Air hand

Physical attributes– fingers longer than the palm that is square or rectangular shaped, dry skin

Typical characteristics

  • Social and witty
  • Like to engage in lengthy conversations
  • Harbor ill feelings and resentment for a long time
  • Can be cold and calculative

Water hand

Physical attributes-relatively long hand, almost oval shaped with slender tapering fingers, length of the palm is equal to the length of the fingers

Typical characteristics 

  • Display superior creative skills
  • Introverted and prefer to do things quietly
  • Have frequent mood swings

Fire hand

Physical attributes– short and stout fingers, square or rectangular shaped palm

Typical characteristics

  • Bold and courageous
  • Tend to be inconsiderate and insensitive to others
  • Extroverted
  • Spontaneous

Combination hand (Air-Earth and Water-Air hand)

Physical attributes– people with the combination type of hand shape have both the attributes of the respective hand shapes

Typical characteristics

  • Since they have characteristics of both hand shapes, they are more balanced and practical.
  • Intuitive
  • Remain calm even in trying situations

Apart from the shape of the hand, there are other aspects of palm reading which together reveal a person’s character and destiny.  Understanding the patterns and lines of the palm is no mean task. A palmist or palm reader is the person qualified and trained in the art, and finding one is not very easy. However, with online palm reading one is not required to go through the hassle of searching for a trustworthy and qualified palm reader.

Online palm reading has surfaced as a hassle free and reliable method for making accurate predictions. Online Palm readers can provide accurate forecasts of your future and also give a detailed description of your personality. Additionally, they can also inform you about the ways in which you can improve and enhance your luck. All you need to do is send in a picture of your hand and then sit; you will receive a detailed analysis of your palm reading for a small fee.
