Book Description


Foretelling Widowhood is the fruit of research work carried out by us during the last two decades. A work of predictive astrology, it amalgamates a plethora of principles enshrined in various classical texts and practical study of birth charts of those who have been unfortunate enough to suffer the immeasurable grief and plight of untimely widowhood. Untimely widowhood is the biggest tragedy that can befall a woman and is irreversible. In olden days, widowhood in general and untimely widowhood in particular was considered an unpardonable sin and a woman had to commit Sad, that is to mount the pyre of her late husband. Was not this inhuman? Women would be ever grateful to Raja Ram Mohan ,Rai whose untiring efforts led to rooting out of this obnoxious practice.

A common belief among masses, as also amongst self-styled astrologers, is that mangali females or those females having kuja dosa in their birth charts are predisposed to suffer widowhood. We would like to humbly opine that this belief is only partially correct. It is not certain that females having kuja dosa will essentially undergo the miseries of marital disaster such as widowhood. Many females, who suffered untimely widowhood, were not mangali either from ascendant, or from Moon or from Venus. This is definitely a wrong concept that widowhood will curse only a mangali female. In fact, much is not known about the kuja dosa and its actual effect.

This thought provoking voluminous work contains 9 chapters. First two chapters, Planetary Dimensions and Zodiac and Essentials of Astrology, cover a few important but basic information and principles regarding confusions and doubts about a number of astrological concepts such as naadi dosa, nica bhariga rajayoga, Combustions & badhakas, retrograde planets, Mars-Saturn conjunction, Jupiter-Venus etc.,

We have also exercised a lot in formulating timing of widowhood and dealt with 32 cases of widowhood in Chapter 3 entitled Early Widowhood : An Astrological Exploration with detailed analyses and findings.

Timing an event is the tougher task to perform than predicting. We have used certain classical aphorisms in Chapter 4 entitled as Timing Widowhood. We have also discussed the timing of widowhood cases in detail. We hope that this would act like bridge stones in timing an event for students of astrology.

It has been observed that there are many misconceptions about Jupiter, e.g., it can prevent widowhood if it has an influence over -7th or 8111 house, but our observations in this regard is that, nearly fifty percent cases of widowhood occur during the major or sub period of Jupiter, which has been explained in Chapter 5 named Widowhood and Misconceptions about Jupiter.

Few females are fortunate enough to be blessed with akhanda saubhagya yoga. Sages have mentioned a lot about the combinations on widowhood but they have discussed less on akhanda saubhagya yoga. We have detailed this properly in Chapter 6 on Akhanda saubhagya Yoga.

Chapter 7, Birth in Jyestha naksatra is an important as many misconceptions and wrong impressions prevail among us regarding the birth in jyestha naksatra. Adversities can certainly be reduced and eliminated if advice of sages like Ketliclasa are strictly followed and other remedial measures undertaken.

The work wouldn't have been complete in all respects, had the chapter on the untimely loss of wife had not been included. While it cannot be gainsaid that women who suffer early widowhood, have to normally undergo more pain and sufferings than men. It can only be claimed on the risk of sounding insensitive that the men do not suffer pain at the loss of their spouses. In a happy conjugal life, loss of either spouse is traumatic. Therefore we have included Determinants for Death of Wife as chapter 8.

The book would have been incomplete without the remedial measures - some common and some rare. It will not be out of place to mention that prevention is always better than cure. We have mentioned as any as 38 remedial measures in chapter 9 entitled Remedies For Marital Maladies and Widowhood. Most of these measures have been tested by us over hundreds of women in whose birth charts potent combinations of loss of husband were present. We advise all such women who want to be blessed with Akhanda saubhagya to select a remedial measure suitable to their planetary combination and follow fn with firm faith and dedication.
