The week ahead

THE Sun, the giver of solar light, and the Moon, the receiver of solar light, will stand in opposition to an array of celestial bodies this week.

The Gemini Sun opposes Pluto in Sagittarius on Monday, June 4, and then opposes the Moon in Sagittarius at the Full Moon on Wednesday, June 6. The Sagittarius Moon will oppose Saturn in Gemini on Tuesday, June 5.

Then, the Moon will conjoin Pluto later on Tuesday, June 5, and will oppose Jupiter in Gemini on Wednesday, June 6. The outcome of these planetary oppositions will be a heightening of tension between opposing forces in the world and in your own psyche. The tension will reflect in internal psychological and philosophical battles and as well as in the surfacing of previously buried conflicts in the external world. With Jupiter involved in the celestial mix, the outcome of all confrontations will be positive. Mercury also begins its retrograde motion on Monday, and Venus enters Taurus for one month on Wednesday, June 6th, after spending more than four months retrograde and direct in Aries.

How significant is the Nakshatra - Nadi factor in matching horoscopes for marriage?

P. V. Vasantha, Secunderabad

THE Nadi factor is fairly important. In the 10 factors, it is one of the all-important five. However, certain almanacs leave it out, as do some astrologers.

The 27 birth-stars are put in the three Nadi categories. In one system, there are nine stars each under Vatha, Pittha and Sleshma. If the bride's and groom's stars fall in different categories, the match is acceptable. Both must not belong to the same category, particularly Pittha. The Nakshatra Padas (four quarters of each star) are reckoned to find out Nadi classification, and when the difference in Nadi prevails going by the respective Pada-s, the requirement of Nadi-p-Poruttham is met. The importance given to this criterion varies from region to region.
