Consciousness, many scientific and philosophic truths were cognised by the
sages of India. They wrote it down and these came to be known as the
Vedas. Sciences like Astronomy, Mathematics, Astrology,

People misunderstand them and because of that they suffer mentally and
become loners. They are people with great individuality and depth in
learning. If religious they will take to Religion in a great manner. In
order to win arguments they destroy the opposition verbally and create a
lot of secret enemies.
They have great sympathy for the oppressed and show a lot of laziness and
lack of enthusiasm. They are extremists; that is they are either very
successful or great failures. There is no middle course for them. These
people always aspire for greatness, strive for leadership and sacrifice
their personal comforts to maintain the high posts earned by them as a
result of their laborious endeavours. Anyway 8 is not a lucky number; they
will have to bear great ills, losses and humiliations. The ancient Greeks
called this number the Number of Just- ice.

Controller of Life - SATURN
You are ruled by the ringed planet Saturn. He is the planet of Justice,
Destiny and Retribution. He represents destruction and regeneration. Great
patience and perseverance are imparted by him. This melancholy planet is
responsible for the verdict imposed by Destiny.
As you are saturnine (melancholic) by temperament you will be attracted to
Literature and Philosophy. Great poets and litterateurs always had a
saturnine background (Dante and Shaw) Concentration and contemplation are
represented by Saturn. Contemplative Life will absorb you in its entirety.
You are cool and analytical
when it comes to rational thinking. You are
also a master where shrewdness and business insight is called for. Your
philosophical outlook on life will save you from many worries and
Your main drawback is that you become too fatalistic ignoring the power of
free-will. You are always misunderstood by others. You endorse the
principle " to be great is to be misunderstood ".
You always carry your cross consecrating yourself to the Divine even when
the verdict of men and Fate go against you. Your life is always marked by
strife and struggle. Even if you become successful you have to pay a heavy
price for it. You have to live laborious days to attain fame and name.
In Vedic Astrology Saturn is the significator of Sorrow of the Cosmic Man,

An Analytical Review
The zodiac sign representing this number is Capricorn. ( Do not confuse
this with the birthsign in Astrology ) Capricornians are generally
philosophers. They love the secrets of Nature and are ready to sacrifice
their life for their chosen ideology.
Capricornians are fatalists. They believe that everything is divinely
ordained and all events have a purpose behind it. Amor fati ( Love of Fate
) is the core of their nature. People under the influence of this
constellation are great democrats and believe in the dignity of labour. In
a life marked by struggle and suffering the fortitude of the Capricornian
is indeed surprising. Temperance is another virtue imparted by this
Negative Aspect--------Saturn is the planet of suffering and he can make you carry the cross for
a longish time. He will test your patience. He can create obstacles and
hindrances and barriers to success make you worried.

represent prosperity etc Ashta Vasus represent the eightfold prosperity.
This is also the symbolism behind Ashta Lakshmi.( the eight aspects of the
Goddess of Prosperity).

Dhyana & Samadhi. Yama and Niyama deal with rules and regulations , Asana
deals with physical fitness, Pranayama is breath control, Pratyahara is
withdrawal into the Self from the sensory world, Dharana is Concentration,
Dhyana is Meditation and Samadhi is Cosmic Consciousness. More information

Astro numerology as related to Religion &
Saturnine Influence on Jesus
Jesus was born with Virgo rising, Jupiter, Moon and Saturn in Pisces,
indicating the Messiah willing to bear the Cross of Golgotha. His number
was 888 which when added gives us 24 and 2+4 = 6, the number of Venus, the
planet of Love. The prophet of Love was indeed the embodiment of the
goddess of Love, Venus. Saturn, the significator of sorrow and liberation,
along with Jupiter aroused in Him the desire to redeem the world through
Universal Love. His suffering life & martyrdom all smacks
of Saturnine influence. Other divine personalities - Tagore, Aurobindo &
Vivekananda also had a profound Saturnine influence in their natal charts.
In the next article we will deal with the Nineians - those who are ruled
by the planet of materiality or Man, Mars.
