Domestic violence and astrology

painful relationships is something which is not new neither is domestic violence.

Legal definition of domestic violence differs from country to country .

In nutshell domestic violence may be termed as one or all of these: inflicting physical.mental,emotional, financial and social ( in terms of spoiling someones reputation) injury.

needless to say that it is a gender neutral activity, both men and women have been found to be initiators of domestic violence resulting in creation of both feminist and masculist groups fighting for their rights.

We Indians believe in matching of horoscopes  to ensure a stable marriage but we find cases where despite a so called well matched horoscope the marriage runs into problems due to domestic violence.

Long ago while going a bad patch in life I was introduced to this concept which in within our texts but still overlooked by many astrologers while matching horoscopes.

Tithi- the lunar date, nakshatra- star occupied by moon,

rasi- sign occupied by moon,

vaar- weekday and lagna – ascendent

need to be looked into to analyze mental and emotional injury, damage to reputation and physical injuries respectively.

in case there is ghataka, it is better to avoid the match and if already married remedies need to be done under guidance of a good astrologer to minimize the injury thus stabilizing the  marriage.

for a male it is double injury because  a man who is a victim of domestic violence may still have to pay alimony to get out of a painful relationship which adds more to the pain.

Even when 36 guna match, marriage can be very painful for one or for both.

At that time I was directed to read  the details on website of Shri Sanjay Rath but that writeup is not available in today’s date however a fantastic detailed writeup on this topic with all relavent tables is available on website of Shri Sarajit Poddar, who is a student of Shri Sanjay Rath.

I would request all to consider this while horoscope matching .


sensitivity towards women or towards victim ?

last few days there have several instances where over and over again it has been said that system – police and judicial system should be sensitized to women issues. in a situation where even apex court has agreed that some women are misusing laws to harass other men, women, elders I wonder if we should say ; the system should be sensitized towards the sufferer, the victim.

The judiciary since ages has been respected for just one thing – delivering justice to victim in an impartial way, should it not be left out of political and feminist motives  and remain true to the basics of law and justice so as to preserve its divine image ?


A male can be victim  at hands of  female – can he expect justice  in a system where as soon as a male is exposed to misuse of law the first thing he is told is – system is partial towards / tilted in favour of women complainants. this starts from police station , lawyers office and the court complex itself though I have not come across any Judge who said it openly in my face.

think: does it enhance the image of judiciary ? does it help in eradication of crime or eradication of misuse of law – does it help in making a better society ?

In our society who holds the responsibility of  assuring a male  entangled in gender based litigation including divorce, domestic violence and dowry related cases that he can look forward to a fair impartial trial and that judicial system is not gender sensitive but victim sensitive  , is it the government  or law enforcement agencies like police, media , NGOs or the Judiciary itself  through words and actions ?

And even despite such views/ conditions if a male fights back and wins should he not be rewarded  for showing faith in judicial system and not giving in to pressure for an out of court settlement ? should the woman who misuses law be not punished ?

me thinking- you also think.

kindly share views.
