How to read a South Indian chart

South Indian Chart

South Indian Chart

In this square chart the 12 zodiacal signs (known as Rashis in Sanskrit) are always in the same squares. The Dual signs are in the four corners. Pisces is always in the upper left hand corner, followed directly by Aries, then Taurus, and Gemini in the upper right hand corner. Virgo is in the lower right hand corner, Sagittarius in the lower left. The signs and houses are read clockwise around the zodiac. The Ascendant can be in any one of these 12 signs, and the planets  distributed according to where they are in the heavens.  All South Indian charts are read like this, and the birth chart is typically shown to the left or above the Navamsha (the 9th harmonic chart.)

How to read a North Indian chart

This chart is in the shape of a yantra (a mystical diagram), with diamond-shaped houses. The Ascendant (known as the Lagna in Sanskrit) is always located at the top central position of the chart. The houses are read counter-clockwise from the Ascendant. In this diagram, H2 indicates the 2nd house,   H3 the 3rd house, and so on. The arrows indicate the direction in which the houses are read. Since the Lagna is always set for this format, the typical North Indian chart will have numbers in each house to show what sign of the zodiac resides in that house. The zodiacal sign that is rising is indicated by a number from 1 to 12: Number 1 is Aries, 2 is Taurus, 3 is Gemini, etc. through each of the 12 houses. Thus, if number 3 is in the Lagna, Gemini is rising and is assigned to House 1, Cancer to House 2, Leo to House 3. All North Indian charts are read like this, and the birth chart is typically shown to the left or above the Navamsha, the 9th harmonic chart.

Immigration – the Defining Issue of the 2020 U.S. Election. Part 2

PART 2: WHO WINS THE IMMIGRATION BATTLE?

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

WHY GLOBALISM MAY FAIL IN THE EARTH PERIOD FROM 2020

The next U.S. Presidential Election will hinge on who wins the battle between Globalism and Nationalism.  It has now become a very heated battle, especially in the U.S., where President Trump is leading the fight for Nationalists, and the Globalists are mostly Democrats who are firmly supported by the United Nations.  Continue reading

Immigration – the Defining Issue of the 2020 U.S. Election. Part 1

Part 1: Immigration – Left and Right

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

“It’s a Republic, if you can keep it.”   Benjamin Franklin, 1789


Jupiter is the planet of expansion, abundance, law, justice and religion, while Saturn is the planet of constriction, discipline, limits, borders and rules – especially for marriage, families, and societies. Saturn is more concerned with tradition, material security and safety.  In the planetary hierarchy, the teaching is that rules are needed in the midst of expansion and prosperity.   Continue reading

Spies, Propaganda, Censorship & the Origins of the Trump-Russia Collusion Investigation

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

This is not breaking news. It has been out there in independent media for several years, but you may not have heard it.  The conspiracy against Donald Trump began from at least 2015 onward and used the combined powers of the DOJ (U.S. Dept. of Justice), the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), the NSA (National Security Agency), and the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) to run a counterintelligence operation against a presidential candidate, also using foreign intelligence agencies.  Their allies were the leftist mainstream media, also known as the DNC (Democratic National Committee) Media Complex.  But even earlier, from 2012 onward, the Obama administration spied on its political opponents through illegal access to the NSA data base.  Continue reading

Jussie Smollett – Act 2

By Edith Hathaway ©2019

On Tues. March 26, 2019 all criminal charges against the actor Jussie Smollett were suddenly and mysteriously dropped and the case sealed by Cook County Attorney General Kim Foxx. This was for his alleged hate crime hoax on Jan. 29, 2019. Though she had recused herself in the case on Feb. 19, 2019, Foxx now says she had not really done so.  The sequence is unprecedented due to the prior Grand Jury indictment of Jussie Smollett with 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for making a false police report. The indictment was based on only a portion of the large body of evidence presented by the Chicago Police Department. Continue reading

Jussie Smollett – Hate Crime Hoax in Chicago

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

Jussie Smollett, the popular American TV actor and singer, was charged on Feb. 21, 2019 with the felony of filing a false police report. He faces the possibility of up to 3 years in prison for an alleged hate crime that Chicago Police now says he himself choreographed.  His bond was set at $100,000, and upon paying a $10,000 bond he was released from police custody the same day, with a court date set for March 14, 2019.  In spite of overwhelming physical evidence and testimony, evidence from surveillance cameras as well as credit card, bank, phone, and text records from Smollett and the two men he hired and rehearsed to do the deed, Smollett continues to plead innocent of any wrongdoing.

The U.S.-China Trade War & Related Topics

By Edith Hathaway ©2018

The Trade War between the United States, China and other top economy nations can be studied from various angles and over shorter and longer periods of time to better understand it.  And since the U.S. and China are by far the world’s two largest economies, any trade disputes between them have the largest ramifications.  We will cover this topic both in the short term (2018-2020) and the longer term (1961-2080). As we shall see also, trade wars and disputes share many of the same issues with immigration.  Continue reading

Brett Kavanaugh and the Run-up to the Last Close Pluto Station opposite the USA Sun (3° orb)

by Edith Hathaway © 2018

“If you vote no – you’re legitimizing the most despicable thing I have ever seen in my time in politics,” said a furious Senator Lindsay Graham to Republican colleagues at Brett Kavanaugh’s Judicial Committee hearing Sept. 27, 2018, also dubbed the Sexual Assault Hearing.  On their side, Democrats decided the hearing was also despicable, but for totally different reasons.  Some of this was echoed in the T-shirts of battling supporters outside the Dirksen Senate Office building that morning, with a much admired anti-Kavanaugh T-shirt reading “Men are Trash” and a pro-Kavanaugh T-shirt reading “I Stand with Brett.”  Continue reading

Peter Strzok – Update

Peter Strzok (pronounced “strock”) was the lead FBI investigator in the Mueller probe into both Hillary Clinton’s emails and the Trump-Russia collusion, 2015 -2017.  Last month I wrote about The Inspector General’s Report, June 14, 2018 and the critical role Strzok played in both of these high profile investigations.   He appeared before Congressional hearings June 27, 2018 (behind-closed-doors) and July 12, 2018 (televised).  Both sessions endured for over 10 hours, but the latter received particular notoriety.  This story is not over yet.  Continue reading

More Investigation around the 2016 U.S. Election: The Inspector General’s Report, June 14, 2018

by Edith Hathaway © 2018

The IG Report: Background 

“On July 10, 2015, the FBI Counterintelligence Division opened a criminal investigation [on Hillary Clinton’s emails] in response to the 811 referral from the IC IG [Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General].[i]  Although only a small percentage of 811 referrals result in criminal investigations, witnesses told the OIG [Office of the Inspector General] that a criminal investigation was necessary to determine the extent of classified information on former Secretary Clinton’s private server, who was responsible for introducing the information into an unclassified system, and why it was placed there. The FBI gave the investigation the code name ‘Midyear Exam’…” Continue reading

Russiagate Showdown – 13 Russians Indicted

By Edith Hathaway © 2018

On Friday, Feb. 16, 2018 at 1:30 pm EST, the U.S. Dept. of Justice held an important press conference. Mainstream media called it a decisive turning point in the findings of an 18-month long federal investigation into President Trump’s possible collusion with Russia to affect the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election – a topic widely known as “Russiagate.” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein presided at the event.  The FBI-led investigation has been ongoing since late July 2016, initially under Special Counsel James Comey, FBI Director (2013-2017), and continuing under Robert Mueller, FBI director (2001-2013). Trump fired Comey as FBI Director May 9, 2017, and 8 days later Mueller was appointed Special Counsel.  He was not present at the Feb. 16, 2018 press conference. Continue reading

Chakrapani Ullal

Chakrapani Ullal has been called the “father of Vedic astrology in the Western world.” A great Vedic astrologer who came to the U.S. from South India in 1979, he previously studied law and business in India, having learned Vedic astrology from a young age at the feet of his father and grandfather. He first became widely known internationally as the astrologer for Swami Muktananda, who invited him to come to the US in 1979. Continue reading

Anatomy of a Pluto Station: Las Vegas Shooting and Other Notable Events

By Edith Hathaway © 2017

Of course this wasn’t just any Pluto Station. When Pluto went Stationary Direct (from the earth’s vantage point) on Sept. 28, 2017 it was extraordinary in being almost exactly opposite the USA Sun, and the first time ever in U.S. history and in Pluto’s 248-year orbit around the Sun that such a phenomenon has occurred. I’ve been writing about this astronomical/astrological event since spring 2017, but let us review some of the main components.  Continue reading

The Great Divide: American Civil War Redux

by Edith Hathaway © 2017

The American Civil War of the 1860s is reappearing in multiple ways during the summer and fall of 2017: The classic Civil War film Gone with the Wind (1939) was removed from a popular film festival in Memphis, Tennessee. Deemed “insensitive” to the local population, which is 64% black, it was removed from the 2017 and 2018 series after a showing on Aug. 11, 2017. The statue of Robert E. Lee and other Confederate soldiers may be removed all across the South. An Asian TV announcer with the name Robert Lee was removed from his announcer post at ESPN – temporarily, as a football game Aug. 26, 2017 was to be held in Charlottesville, Virginia, the scene of the protests and counter protests in mid-August regarding Robert E. Lee’s statue.[i] And since George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were also major slave owners, the question arises: Should their statues be removed as well? And what about their images on U.S. currency? Continue reading

ACCIDENTAL JOURNALIST & FRIENDS : The Rise of Citizen Journalists

by Edith Hathaway © 2017

George Webb calls himself the “Accidental Journalist,” while his admirers call him “an extraordinary and intrepid investigator” and his detractors call him (predictably) a “conspiracy theorist.” Others like him have become “citizen journalists” in recent years, joining the burgeoning ranks of on-line Independent news media. Generally they do not feel served by the mainstream media, especially during the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and dating back to 9-11 or earlier. Many citizen journalists did not plan to be journalists, but moved into it out of utter frustration with the level of information being presented on mainstream news (MSM).  Continue reading

Deep State vs. Head of State : Tr. Pluto opposes the USA Sun (3° orb)

by Edith Hathaway © 2017

“Apparently, ‘conspiracy stuff’ is now shorthand for unspeakable truth.”

Gore Vidal, Oct. 2002

Transiting Pluto opposite anyone’s natal Sun is an arresting phenomenon, confronting the person’s very identity and legitimacy on deep levels. There are no political or geographical boundaries to Pluto’s realm, just as with Plutonian elements such as radioactivity. Expand the implications to cover the first-ever Pluto opposition to the USA Sun. Pluto’s orbit is 248.4 years, and the Sun in the chart of a nation-state is the President, or Head of State; also the presidency.  Continue reading

FROM INFORMATION AGE TO SURVEILLANCE STATE – HOW DID WE GET HERE?

By Edith Hathaway © 2017

The Information Age has brought with it both progress and retrogression. Some consider it simply the dark and light sides of capitalism and capitalist modernization, thus something that both emancipates and crushes. Astrologically, the Information Age in our era began formally in 1980-1981 with the triple Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions in sidereal Virgo, the sign that Mercury, the communications planet, owns and where it is exalted. The JU-SA conjunctions occur every 20 years, but when they occur three times at the 20-year mark, a relative rarity, this gives extra potency to the conjunctions, and brings extra intensity and acceleration both to the period and to the arena over which Mercury has domain. In addition, this set of triple conjunctions occurred in Hasta nakshatra (the hand), reflecting the new information technology’s hands-on practical approach, along with its hand-held devices, completely changing the way people live, work, and communicate.  Continue reading

Rhapsody in Blue – Breakthrough Moment in American Art & Culture: Feb. 12, 1924

By Edith Hathaway ©2017

There are cultural flashpoints in every era. And since musical tastes typically take the longest to develop, flashpoints may be recognized at the time as such. But they can also take many more decades before their impact is fully understood. One such moment was on Feb. 12, 1924 at a concert in New York City, now referred to as “a defining event of the Jazz Age and the cultural history of New York City.” (Wikipedia: Aeolian Hall) The concert became known as a “jazz concert” only years after the event. It was also the world premiere of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Up to that time, Gershwin was largely unknown to the classical music world. Continue reading

PRINCE OF BROADWAY – LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA brings Alexander Hamilton to (musical) life

By Edith Hathaway © 2016

On a recent trip to the Caribbean, and while staying on the beautiful island of Nevis, I learned that Alexander Hamilton was born there – a surprise to me and perhaps to many people. So we had to visit his birthplace and the museum there. Coincidentally, upon our return to the U.S., Public television was showing a documentary film on the Broadway musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda. He in turn was inspired by Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton, first published April 26, 2004. The musical Hamilton had its World premiere on Jan. 20, 2015 at the Public Theater, New York City and its Broadway debut on Aug. 6, 2015. Continue reading

POST ELECTION COMMENTARY: Nov. 28, 2016

ELECTION SURPRISE

When most astrologers predicted Hillary Clinton as winner in 2016, using both East & Western techniques and classical rules, it did not turn out as planned.  Astrology did not work the way it normally works – at least I can say that for sure using Vedic astrology.  I think all along was the revolutionary component that had to be considered and that would shatter all the usual rules we follow, including astrological rules – such as that Trump would lose in the last sub-period of his 18-year Rahu Dasha, which is normally the case.  Continue reading

Election 2016 Update : Oct. 28, 2016

  • By Edith Hathaway © 2016

 2016 PRESIDENTIAL PREDICTIONS & TECHNIQUES

In Dec. 2015 I predicted that the Democrats would keep the White House in 2016 and that the likely Republican nominee was Donald Trump, out of a field of 17 GOP nominees.  (Click here for the article.)  I also noted that due to the timing to Trump’s birth chart, especially being at the tail end of his 18-year Rahu Dasha (a Vedic planetary period), and losing the protection of transiting Jupiter in sidereal Leo from Aug. 12, 2016, his chances of reaching the presidency would diminish noticeably from that time onward.
