AstroSage is once again back with an interview of an expert astrologer. Today, we will talk to our expert astrologer ‘Rajeev K. Khattar’. A man with expertise in career counselling, education, financial astrology, medical astrology, marriage matching, Lal Kitab and a lot more. If you share interest in similar fields, then this article is exclusively for you.
I was good at mathematics, since my schooldays. I used to help a south Indian lady astrologer for the complex calculations involved in astrology. In 1980, the astrologer used to do calculations manually, as computers and astrology software were only dreams. While helping her, I used to hear her conversation with her clients like, “your Rahu is transiting through 12th house, which will not be good for you’’ and “worship Lord Hanuman to get rid of negative Mars in your horoscope’’. Also, I used to see her clients visiting again, touching her feet and gifting her sweets, flowers, etc. This used to amuse me a lot. Seeing my deep interest in the subject, she gave me initial lessons on the subject. She didn’t start the lessons on predictions until she made me learn characteristics of all the 27 Nakshatras (constellations) by heart. My sister taught me the basics of numerology and palmistry.
While in Engineering college, I developed interest in Lal Kitab system of astrology. I used to see a copy of original Lal Kitab in my house left by my grandfather. However, I couldn’t understand it, as it was written in Urdu language. My father used to help me understand the meaning of various terms, as he knew the Urdu language.
I lost huge amount of money in a business venture with my partners and was debt ridden. In pursuit to know when I will be debt free, I learnt stellar astrology. To know how can I be debt free, I took the help of Lal Kitab remedies. After getting convinced myself about the efficacy of Lal Kitab remedies and accuracy of predicting the events by stellar system of astrology, I decided to become professional astrologer and left engineering .
What astrological system do you use and why?
For predicting the events, I use stellar system. I have found it very useful to predict even smallest events like, when will the friend arrive or when the current will be restored. It also helps in rectifying the birth time upto seconds accuracy.
For remedies, I rely on mantra chanting and Lal Kitab. Since I have myself experienced their benefic results, so I mainly use these two.
For suggesting lucky gem to be worn, I use Anukool system, i.e. wearing the gem of the planet which is favourable through star lord as well as through sublord.
For stock market predictions, combined study of western planetary aspects and Sarvatobhadra Chakra yields good results .
Any incident related to astrology in your life or your prediction, which created impact and that you want to share with our readers?
One of my clients asked me in July 2010 about the fate of his investment in Suzlon Energy. He had bought the stocks of Suzlon Energy @ 90. At the time of asking the question, it was being traded at around 60 Rs. Business TV channels and business newspapers were suggesting to buy Suzlon Energy, as according to them, it had potential to go higher. My client was confused between buying more at lower rates and to book profits at a later stage or selling at lower rates and to book the smaller loss in order to avoid bigger loss. As per the stellar system, he gave me horary number 165 and I started working on it on 31st July 2010 at 14:01 Hr in Faridabad.
Since the question was about his investment and he had already spent the money, so I analysed the prospects of 12th house at the time of judgment. 12th cusp was under the sway of Saturn. Saturn was in virgo sign at 6-54-58 degrees. The star lord of Saturn was Sun (owner of 9th cusp placed in 8th cusp). Sun didn’t promise any profits. Further, on sublord level, Saturn was in the influence of Mercury also. Mercury was placed in 9th cusp and lord of 8th and 10th cusps. This configuration also didn’t assure any profits. I advised my client to sell Suzlon Energy at current rates and book the loss. Very reluctantly he sold his stocks on 3rd August 2010 @ 56, but he was very happy to note that the rates went further down and down after that date. He thanked me for giving the correct advice and saving him from taking big losses.
What are your suggestions for budding astrologers or for those who’re interested in this subject?
I will suggest what Ms.Vijaya Raju suggested me – learn the characteristics of all the 27 Nakshatras by heart. Nakshatras are the basics. It is very essential to read the classical texts on Indian astrology and Puranas. In Shiva Purana, there is a chapter dedicated to the uses of Rudrakshas. Knowledge of Puranas guides in suggesting suitable remedies to the sufferers.
Learn astrology properly from an experienced and knowledgeable astrologer, rather than trying to learn from roadside books.
After learning, analyse the horoscopes of your friends and relatives. don’t keep analysing your own horoscope, as it won’t help in learning.
Make a database of selected horoscopes like collection of the lawyers, the doctors, the divorcees and the sports persons, etc. This helps in finding common planetary position amongst the same set of data.
Last but not the least, practicing meditation daily shouldn’t be ignored.
According to you, which are the best astrology books that one should read?
In my opinion, the following books must be read by the students of astrology:
- Saravali by Kalyan Varma
- Bhavartha Ratnagar by Ramanujacharya
- Bhrigu Sutram by Bhrigu Rishi
- Brhat samhita by Varahamihira and
- Brihat Jataka by Varahamihira
- Nakshatra Chintamani by Bhatt

Women: a source of survival of human beings. Every woman plays many roles throughout her life, be it a daughter, a wife, a mother ora granny. She fits in every role and hold on the responsibilities. Let’s see that on this Women’s Day, what our astrologer Pt. Hanumman Mishra says.
Today is Women's Day. Progress of this universe can't be imagined without the existence of women. Limitations of womanhood were proved by Sita; her role of protector was proved by Savitri, who went against Yama (Lord of death) for the well being of her husband and family. On the other hand, she has proved to be the demolisher of anarchy being Durga and Kali. But, it is an eternal rule that time tests everyone. Good and bad days are part of everyone's life; therefore, sometimes women have to deal with adverse situations.
It's been such a long time, since India got independence. For the safety of women, many so-called plans and rules have been made. However, all these seem to be just a formality.
We can witness this condition of women through the birth chart (Kundali) of independent India. Position of Ketu in the 7th house and 7th lord, Mars in Rahu’s constellation indicates that our country does more show off than work in the matters related to women. As 7th house lord is itself situated in Rahu's Nakshatra (constellation), some women who are considered as ideal by other women, may face problems in choosing the right direction for themselves. It will create problems for other women, who follow these women.
Mars is the lord of the seventh house, which is posited in the sign of Mercury (the sign of businessman); and in the constellation of Rahu (ruler of wealth). Hence, women situated at higher places as well as men will play a major role in misleading women. Due to the positioning of 7th house lord in Mercury’s sign, direct impact of Mercury and Rahu-Ketu will be seen on some women today. You may either call it excess of ambitiousness or powerlessness. As a result, women became the object and started selling her beauty either via advertisement of soaps or cosmetics.
Due to influence of Rahu on Mars, the 7th house lord, protectors of women can also be seen exploiting them under the excuse of providing security, reservation and protection. Due to this effect of Rahu and Mars, a large number of Indian women become the victim of rape.
After analyzing the Kundali of India, it seems that government and administration, if try to work for the welfare of women, might not bring in protecting the womanhood. Therefore, a woman needs to keep herself aware all the time.
It is very important to figure out those people, who treat women as an object of entertainment. In the name of independence, people are trying to make women a part of such a world, which can even finish her existence.
Increasing number of incidents such as rape, force us to think that our people who are also our law system, witness these incidents like silent/numb audience. The number of laws and crimes are growing at the same pace. Whether it's rape or any other social crime, such incidents keep on taking place. When these things happen, our intellectuals and social workers start their dramas of protests and rallies. However, all these have no meaning.
Therefore, it is very important for Indian women to realize that they are not less than men in any aspect. As per the rules and limitations of nature, respect of womanhood will keep on increasing if she tries to behave like a woman only. Reason behind is that that while comparing herself with men, she might lose her fundamental qualities, which ultimately go against the rules of nature. Woman is herself so important that she is ahead men in many aspects, which make her incredible. Woman is respectable and worth worshiping; therefore, question of comparison holds no meaning.
