Google Suggests: 16.7160° N, 81.8958° E

This representation is called Decimal representation of Lat Long. This is not DMS, which our Astrology Softwares use.

How to convert Decimal to DMS (Desgree, Minute, Seconds) of a Lat Long?

  1. I used this convertor: http://www.rapidtables.com/convert/number/degrees-to-degrees-minutes-seconds.htm
  2. Input the Decimal value of that place and click convert
  3. The final output should be 16° 42′ 57.6″ N and  81° 53′ 44.88″ E
  4. We could ignore the seconds
  5. Additional Read: Accuracy of the Lat. Long.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_degrees, This means that Google provides us with very high accuracy of a location.

That’s reality….life goals are shores and journey is to swim against the tide, we cant plan for tide, but continue to push towards the shore we want to reach. Lastly if you don’t have any goal any direction is a journey and any shore is a destination. Afterall no one stop at that shore… And moves on why? Where? How? Is the loop of life…. So time spent on the journey is more than the destination stay, hence learn enjoying the journey and worry less about the destination. Moral of the story is that the image is dramatic but sends incomplete signal

Though provoking experiment, to ask one self on what they think is to “Care” for others/Strangers? In spite of the video context being abroad, Its far easy and obvious, to practice the ideal “Care”. However I wonder if the same Ideal behavior can be executed in India

How were programmed to treat Rich and Poor, Person in power and Vulnerable?

So what is the Ideal behavior of “Care”?



Hypothesis: If a person is not married, to derive the karakamsa lagna from Navamsa is fine, but after marriage and if the spouse horoscope is available, why not use it?

Doesnt this translate more vividly about the interlinked destinies?

So how to derive the karakamsa lagna?

  1. Identify the highest degree of the planet in your chart [0-30 degrees] and excluding Rahu and Kethu.
  2. Which sign does this highest degree planet, poised in the spouse chart?
  3. That sign should be used to check for the Karakamsa Lagna.

If any one finds good results using this technique please let know.
