I promised to write on “Can you sing (and by extension -can your crony’s enemy’s friends or even a stranger sing?”. We take a practical and testable approach provided you have some interest in astrology or willing to test it.
This article will help provide one very small step for astro-cynics to prove their cynicism of astrology or surrender to its fathomless ocean of wisdom.
As a sweetener towards the end we astro briefly discuss possibility of Rewinding and Playback of India’s great musical years in coming years
Do this exercise-To test if a person can sing or not. And his/her fan following will provide the test if astro guidance is helpful or not.
It’s of limited use to discuss any famous singers horoscope to derive if he/she can sing. Hence we ask you to do this exercise.
We have outlined the following steps or process to help you determine if you or your cronies can sing reasonably without dispersing a congregation of friends with their uninvited Cacophonic singing.
We have run through confirmed horoscopes of well known singers in India and abroad/discarded those whose astro data was not confirmed to derive initial principles
Download a Indian astrology software like Jaganathhora available for windows/Macs but not available android or iOS.For android and ioS Kundli app will be fune.Online horoscope creator on www.FuturepointIndia.com is also very good. You must have persons accurate birth time,place of birth and year/date of birth to get started.
Look at Birth chart and ninth harmonic chart(called navamsa or ninth division) These will be sufficient in most cases. Navamsa chart to be reliable requires greater accuracy in birth time.If in doubt look at main birth chart only.
- Jupiter is the main planet of singing as also of lot more.Its placement in main chart is very important
- Try to locate ascendant or lagna in charts. That is the first house. and moving clockwise are 12 houses in increasing numerical order covering twelve zodiac signs
- Second most important planet is lord of 2nd house- this house is lord of speech arts and lot more but we are focusing on singing.
- Jupiter has aspects on 1st house(where it is placed and 5th and 9 houses. Besides the opposite/aspect which is true of all planets) That means it affects houses 1,5,9 and any planets located there in. besides the house /planets opposite it
- Do the same for navamsa chart –forget the main chart.
- For a person to have reasonably singing ability Jupiter is either located in 2nd house from ascendant or aspects the 2nd house in charts.If this aspect of location is found in both charts, its power is increased and singing potential must be higher.
- If Jupiter additionally aspects or connects with lord of 2nd house (e.g. Mars is owner of Aries and Scorpio signs, Venus owns Taurus and Libra and so on) this is another sign of singing potential
- Some signs as 2nd house and some planets are lord of 2nd house may be adding power. Venus Moon as lord of 2nd house will enrich voice or singing capability as will Libra. If they are located in 2nd house that would enhance singing potential.
- What are spoilers? In Vedic astrology two shadowy planets are used Rah and Kato and they will be in all horoscopes-always placed opposite each other. Two conclusions must be tested. Presence of Kato in 2nd house must be definite spoiler in some way hindering some aspect of singing potential.
If other “singing signs” are encouraging then presence of Rah in 2nd house or conjunct with lord of 2nd house could impart a strange unconventional quality to voice.
- Naturally it is difficult to add this up to provide an index of singing potential but is good enough to get started with practical tests
- We have not covered why some singers and songs become famous while other singers last briefly. Among the many causes would be singer/person may not favorable astro-periods but that is beyond our scope.
- It must be stressed both chart mentioned above must be seen for presence of above planetary positions. What we have not been to even tentatively cover if persons ability to disciple his voice, to control breath so important for mastery in singing. Saturn and Mars their positions in chart relative to and along with ascendant lord/house may hold key
Exercise Find me a great popular singer with malefics like Saturn Ketu in 2nd house.2nd house is not Cancer or Libra or owned by Jupiter. No Jupiter or Moon or Venus in 2nd house
This may be useful for those with some understanding of astrology and knowledge of Indian music
India birth chart of 1947 is well known. It suddenly dawned on me that India’s glorious years of unforgettable songs by thousands from 47 to late 70s and early 80s suddenly gave way to songs that cannot be explained except by astrological analysis. India saw Saturn period end in mid 60s and Mercury period last 16 years till 1981.Ketu period lasted 7years till 1988 followed by Venus period of 20 years till 2008 and Sun period end 2015.
In Indian Horoscope Mercury lord of 2nd house with Venus Sun Saturn is located in 3rd sensitive/emotional house of cancer.
Huge output of immortal mostly melancholy songs till 60s could be explained by ongoing period of Saturn conjunct with moon in sensitive sign of Cancer. Is that a coincidence? Era of mid 60s saw huge outflow of immortal songs but probably had more life than before mid 60s era. That was Mercury era lord of 2nd house Both Mercury and Saturn seems to show their personality- in the songs. Songs of 80s are best forgotten even though most geniuses of old era were alive and active.
Venus and Sun period have seen revival in quality/content and popularity of songs compared to 80s but way below that era of 50s 60s 70s.
Start of Moon period from 2015 ending 2025 we predict is likely to see marked upswing in quality and popularity of songs. Perhaps approaching the same issue from dominant population type (old vs. mature vs. very young population) could also provide answers
