This is the result of queries that are made by the users using AstroSage Cloud services. The queries were generally regarding how can they sync or backup birth charts on Server that are saved on their mobile or other devices. As a response to these questions, AstroSage has added this convenient feature to Cloud Services, which helps you in syncing all birth charts saved on your mobile to AstroSage Cloud. So, if your mobile gets lost or damaged, still you would be able to access all birth charts on AstroSage Cloud.

Among them, Chaitra and Sharad Navratri are known to be the Gupt Navratris of Paush and Ashadh months respectively. Chaitra and Sharad Navratri are celebrated with more glee and excitement. Gupt Navratri is known to be highly fruitful regarding Tantra practices and activities. Goddess Kali is worshipped during Gupt Navratri. As the rituals carried out for tantra practices are difficult to conduct, hence, it is called as Gupt Navratri.

    • Now fill the water in an urn (kalash), tie a sacred thread (kalawa) around its neck and keep it on a clay vessel.
    • Now place Ashok or Mango leaves on top of the kalash.
    • Now wrap the coconut using the thread (kalawa).
    • After that, wrap the coconut in a red cloth and place it between the leaves on top of the urn.
    • After finishing the urn installation, one should remember the Goddess.

    Possible Yogas on Ashadh Gupt Navratri


    Gupt Navratri will begin during Sarvartha Siddhi Yoga and it will end on 21st July in this yoga only. This yoga is considered to be auspicious and fruitful, so, one attains beneficial results by worshipping Goddess Shakti during this auspicious period.

    Importance Of Gupt Navratri


    Like usual Navratri, nine forms of Goddess are worshipped and fast is performed during Ashadh Gupt Navratri. Special rituals are carried out to gain tantric accomplishments during this Navratri. Family men and household seekers must recite Durga Saptashati during these nine days of Gupt Navratri. With its influence, one attains wealth and prosperity in the household and family.

    What To Avoid During Gupt Navratri


    • During these nine days, natives who worship the Goddess should not wear black-colored clothes.
    • During the Gupta Navratri, devotees who fast and perform rituals should not sleep during the day.
    • On this festival when Goddess Aradhana is worshipped, no one should insult any woman.
    • Hair and nails should not be cut during these nine days.
    • Onions, garlic, meat and alcohol should not be consumed in this period.

    Just like Chaitra and Sharad Navratri, Ashadh Gupt Navratri is also very important. This is the auspicious occasion to worship Goddess Shakti for nine days and seek their blessings.

    Jagannath Rath Yatra of Puri, famous in India and worldwide, will commence from today. Every year, Lord Jagannath is taken out from his temple for this journey. It is believed that the God comes out of his sanctuary to see the sorrow and happiness of his people. Badrinath, Dwarka, Jagannath Puri and Rameshwaram are the four pilgrim places that are highly significant in Hinduism. According to Vedic Puranas, Jagannath Puri is known as the Baikuntha of the Earth among these sacred places, as Lord Vishnu reincarnated here as Purushottam Neelmadhava. In this form, he became the worshipped deity of Sabar tribe. And this is the reason why, his appearance in Puri looks like that of the tribal Gods.

    Just like the festivals of Holi, Diwali, Dussehra and Raksha Bandhan, Jagannath Rath Yatra is also a very important festival, which is celebrated with lots of zeal and enthusiasm. Apart from Puri, this Rath Yatra is also organized in other cities of India. People who are not able to join the Rath Yatra of Puri can join this auspicious festival in their city to get the blessings of the God.


    When Jagannath Rath Yatra Commemorates?


    Every year Jagannath Rath Yatra commences in Puri district of Odisha from Dwitiya Tithi of Shukla Paksha in the month of Ashadha. This year, it is beginning from today, i.e. July 14. Three different chariots are constructed every year for Lord Jagannath, his brother Balbhadra and sister Subhadra. During the journey, chariot of Balrama is on the front, behind him is the chariot of Sister Subhadra and at the back is the chariot of Lord Jagannath. Among them, chariot of Lord Jagannath is the highest.

    As per beliefs, those people who help in pulling the chariots attain salvation in afterlife. This nine days journey is concluded when the chariots reach Gundicha Temple, which is considered the home of Lord Jagannath’s Aunt. Other than the God’s aunt’s home, this temple is also the place where Deva Vishwakarma built the statues of the Trinity Gods (Tridev or Trimurti). Here, the God and his siblings stays for 9 days and on the next day of Ashadha Shukla Dashami, they return to the main temple. This return journey of the Rath Yatra is called as Bahuda Yatra.

    How the Chariot of Lord Jagannath is Constructed?


    The scene of Puri’s Jagannath Rath Yatra is incredibly fascinating, which commemorates in the presence of millions of devotees. Lord Jagannath, brother Balbhadra and sister Subhadra rides in three grandly decorated chariots, among which, the chariot of God Jagannath is the grandest. Construction of these chariots is quite complicated, as iron tools are not used in creating them. Instead 1072 pieces of Coconut, Sal or Sakhua and Neem wood are brought from the forest for making these chariots.

    The construction process of the three chariots begins 5 months before from the day of Saraswati Puja. For this auspicious journey, the chariot of Lord Jagannath is created 65 feet long and 45 feet high and there are total of 16 wheels of 7 feet diameter each. Various types of statues and symbols are engraved on these chariots. Under the close supervision of a special committee, and handiwork of experienced and traditional artisans, the construction is concluded. Other labors also help in accomplishing the task of building the Rathas of Lord Jagannath, Balbhadra and Subhadra.

    Things to Remember about Jagannath Rath Yatra 


    • Chariots of Lord Jagannath, brother Balbhadra and sister Subhadra are made from Coconut wood as they are light.
    • The chariot of the God (Lord Jagannath) is of red color and larger than other two chariots.
    • The God’s chariot is behind or the last among the chariots of the three siblings during the Puri Rath Yatra.
    • Rath of Lord Jagannath is also known by the name of Garuda Dhwaja, Kapi Dhwaja or Nandighosha, etc.
    • Name of Lord Jagannath’s chariot horses are Shankha, Balahak, Shweta and Haridashwa, who are white in color. The chariot is protected by the King of birds, Garuda.
    • According to religious beliefs, a person attains salvation just by attending the festival of Puri Rath Yatra.
    • As the saying goes in Skanda Purana, a person who takes a bath in the pilgrim city of Puri during the month of Ashadha attains the virtue for the rest three pilgrim sites (Badrinath, Dwarka and Rameswaram).

    “Mahaprasad” of Jagannath Temple


    Jagannath temple of Puri is the only temple where the offered Prasad is called Mahaprasad, otherwise the Prasad (offerings) of all other Hindu temples are only Prasad. This Mahaprasad is highly blessed by the God and is equally distributed among the devotees without any discrimination. It is also said that the Kitchen of the Jagannath temple is the largest kitchen in the world.


    Amazing Facts about Jagannath Temple

    • It is highly beneficial to chant mantra during Sutak and Chandra Grahan period.
    • Performing Havan after eclipse using Ghee and Kheer (Rice pudding) is beneficial and it also prevents long-term diseases. If Moon is debilitated in your Kundali, then chant “ॐ Chandraya Namah”.
    • These traditional rules of Sutak period are not applicable on helpless and sick people, elders, children and pregnant women.
    • Do not eat food. Only if it is necessary, then take milk, fruit, juice or Sattvic meal. Also avoid preparing food in this period. 

    Do’s and Don’ts during Chandra Grahan


    It is believed that negative energies, which influence humans negatively, become stronger during an eclipse. This is the reason why, according to religious beliefs, it is important to follow certain do’s and don’ts, so as to avoid the evil effects of Lunar Eclipse.
    • Put some Basil leaves in cooked meal, and in milk and curd before eclipse begins. This negates the effect of Grahan on edible materials.
    • Eat your food before Eclipse and do not eat anything during Eclipse.
    • Do not perform Puja or touch idols of deities, Tulsi and Shami plant.
    • Pregnant women should avoid activities related to cutting, sewing and peeling.
    • Avoid using a knife, scissor or needle.
    • Chant Chandra Mantra and ruminate the name of God in this period.

    Things to Do after Chandra Grahan

    • Take a bath after Eclipse and bathe the idols of the Gods.
    • Sprinkle Gangajal over Tulsi and Shami plant.
    • Donate things to the poor and Brahmins after Grahan.


    Chandra Grahan affects the natives of every Zodiac sign, but its influence remains for 108 days on pregnant women and their unborn babies. Therefore, they need to be more careful and take necessary precautions during this period. It is believed that if a pregnant woman watches an eclipse, it may mark a negative influence on her unborn child and affect them physically or mentally. However, modern science does not validate it.

    AstroSage wishes you a bright future and hopes that above information will be quite useful to you.

    Know easy way to choose your lucky mobile number! Learn how Numerology can help you in selecting the right mobile number that may prove lucky for you. Read here to know the secrets in details.


    It is very important to have luck on your side. Why? Because if it is unfavourable, no matter how hard you have tried, you will not get the results as expected. Just like your name, numbers also have a great significance in your life. And if you are planning to have a new number for your mobile, choose the one which will be favourable for you. It should be a combination of digits that matches with important numbers (destiny and ruling number) of your life and proves to be fortunate for you.

    हिंदी में पढ़ने के लिए यहाँ क्लिक करें

    With the help of Numerology, we will tell you about the importance of numbers (root, destiny and name number) as well as their influence on your life. With this information, you will be able to choose your right and lucky mobile number.

    Which Number will be Lucky for me?


    Whenever you buy a new mobile connection, it is very important for you to know how effective will be the combination of digits of new number for your life. For this, you should buy a mobile number which matches to Mulank (Root Number) and Bhagyank (Destiny Number) as per your date of birth, and is auspicious and lucky.

    What are Mulank and Bhagyank?


    Before knowing your lucky mobile number, you should first know about Mulank (Root Number) and Bhagyank (Destiny Number). Here we have given an example to help you easily understand this:
    The addition of the digits of a person’s birth date is called Mulank, and the addition of the digits of complete date of birth is called Bhagyank. Please note that the digits are added until the final output of number (Mulank and Bhagyank) is between 0 to 9. For example,

    Suppose a person’s Date of Birth is April 22, 1983, then their
    • Mulank as per Date (22) is = 2 + 2 = 4
    • Bhagyank as per Date of Birth (22.4.1983) is = 2+2+4+1+9+8+3 = 29 (2+9) = 11 (1+1) = 2
    This means that a person born on April 22, 1983 will have 4 as Mulank (Root Number) and 2 as Bhagyank (Destiny Number). As 2 is the number of destiny for a person here, therefore it plays a very important role in their life and will lead to the advancement of their fortune.

    How to find out your Lucky Mobile Number?


    Just like you find out your Destiny Number (Bhagyank), add the digits of your mobile number, until their final output is between 0 to 9. For example,
    If a person's mobile number is 9810098100, then total of the digits of this mobile number will be 9+8+1+0+0+9+8+1+0+0 = 36 (3+6) = 9.
    This means that their Yogank or Shubhank (Lucky Number) will be 9. Generally, 9 is considered a very auspicious number, however, it is highly auspicious for people with Bhagyank 9 or friendly with number 9.

     Big Horoscope - Key To Your Bright Destiny

    Things to Keep in Mind while Buying a Mobile Number


    Keep these things in mind when you go to buy a new mobile connection like -
    • If the digits of the number are in ascending (increasing) order, a person progresses in his life.
    • If the digits of the number are in descending (decreasing) order, a person obtains hurdles and obstacles in his life.
    • If 8 comes repeatedly in a mobile number, it is considered unlucky. As a result, a person may have to face various types of problems and criticisms, and his/her sufferings may also increase. However, it is auspicious for people with Number as 8.
    • If 9 is present in the digits of a mobile number, it is considered a highly lucky number. As a result, knowledge and wealth of a person increases and their luck also supports them.
    Therefore, whenever you go to buy a mobile connection, keep these points in mind. Also, make sure that 8 comes the least in your number and 9 comes the most.

    Surya Grahan (August 11, 2018)
    Time Type Visibility
    From 1:32:08 PM till 5:00:40 PM (as per IST) Partial Solar Eclipse Northeast Europe, North West Asia, North America, Atlantic and Arctic regions

    Note: This partial Solar Eclipse will not be visible in India and therefore, its Sutak timings and religious significance will not be considered here.


    Astrological Impact of Surya Grahan


    This Solar Eclipse is occurring in Ashlesha Nakshatra and Cancer. Ashlesha is the Nakshatra of Mercury and Cancer is ruled by Moon. Therefore, the people associated with both these Nakshatra and Sign may face the malefic effects of Surya Grahan. With the eclipse occuring during Ashlesha, lawyers, politicians, teachers, astrologers, Chemical Engineers, chemists and businesspersons may face its adverse effects. As Cancer is a water sign and ruled by Moon, therefore, the native of this sign may also face mental and water related problems.

    Horoscope Predictions for Surya Grahan


    • Aries: There is a possibility of success in certain aspects such as job and business. New sources of income will be achieved. Progress in career is also predicted. You will feel elated as well.
    • Taurus: Your social status will grow along with monetary gains. You will feel happy with support from your loved ones and friends. You will also feel happy with success in every activity.
    • Gemini: You may have to go away from your family due to some work or other reasons. You may feel mentally stress due to increase in your problems. Additionally, less income and more expenses would also create problems for you. You may suffer from health issues as well.
    • Cancer: Increase in stress may affect your personal and professional life. Drive carefully and not speedily. Do not ignore your health.
    • Leo: Due to some reason, you may engage in a dispute or argument with your family members. You are advised to be patient in such situations and talk in a controlled manner. Financial situation will remain as usual.
    • Virgo: Siblings will support you in every situation. Short trips are likely. Courage and strength will increase in you. Your interests in business will lead you to success.
    • Libra: Instability and restlessness may affect your life for a while. Problems in family life may occur. Your mother’s health may also decline.
    • Scorpio: Students may feel lack of concentration while studying. Misunderstandings may lead to problems in relationship with your beloved. There may occur differences of thoughts between you and your children, and their health may also get affected. Your income and growth may pace slowly in this period.
    • Sagittarius: You will get success in every task related to job and business. This will make you elated and happy. You will prosper in your domain. You will also dominate your opponents.
    • Capricorn: You may have to face some problems in your marital life. There are chances of arguments with your spouse. Misunderstandings may also lead to disputes with your business partner. Your spouse may have to struggle to get success in their working domain.
    • Aquarius: Sudden money losses and disgrace to your honor may disappoint you. Face or skin related problems may also occur. Constant problems may cause difficulties for you.
    • Pisces: Increase in stress may affect your health. Long journeys may prove troublesome for you. Certain issues at home may lead to difference of thoughts between you and your father. You may have to struggle for getting success and respect.


    Surya Grahan Sutak Kaal


    As we have already discussed that this partial Solar Eclipse will not be visible in India, therefore, its Sutak timings and religious significance will not be considered here. However, following activities are prohibited in Sutak period:
    • Worshipping idols or touching them, eating and drinking is prohibited and considered inauspicious during Sutak and Eclipse period.
    • It is highly beneficial to chant mantra during Sutak and Surya Grahan period.
    • These traditional rules of Sutak period are not applicable on helpless and sick people, elders, children and pregnant women.
    • Do not eat food. Only if it is necessary, then take milk, fruit, juice or Sattvic meal. Also avoid preparing food in this period.

    Do’s and Don’ts during Surya Grahan


    It is believed that negative energies become stronger during an eclipse, which affect humans negatively. Therefore as per religious beliefs, it is important to follow certain things during Solar Eclipse to avoid its malefic effects.
    • Put some Basil leaves in cooked meal, and in milk and curd before eclipse begins. This negates the effect of Surya Grahan on edible items.
    • Eat your food before and not during the eclipse.
    • Do not perform Puja or touch idols of deities, Tulsi and Shami plant.
    • Pregnant women should avoid activities such as cutting, sewing and peeling.
    • Avoid using a knife, scissor or needle.
    • Chant Surya Mantra and ruminate the name of God during this period.

    Things to Do after Surya Grahan


    • Take a bath after Eclipse and also bathe the idols of the deities.
    • Sprinkle Gangajal over Tulsi and Shami plant.
    • Donate things to the poor and needy after Grahan.

    This will be the last Solar Eclipse of the year. Next Year in 2019, again you will see 3 Solar Eclipses. Among them, first will be seen on January 6, 2019. Surya Grahan is a celestial phenomenon with special astrological significance. Its influence on human life and around the world is seen for quite some time.

    AstroSage wishes you a very bright future.

This festival marks the celebration of well-being of spouse, children and personal purification.

    Goddess Parvati observed a fast for around 108 years in order to prove her love and devotion for Lord Shiva, before he considered her as his wife. According to some scriptures, she was born 107 times before she take the birth of Parvati, and at her 108th birth, she was granted the boon to be the wife of Lord Shiva because of her dedication, perseverance and penance over many births.

    Mythological Significance of Nag Panchami


    There are some Indian mythological scriptures such as Skanda Purana, Agni Purana, Narada Purana and Mahabharata, which give information about Puja rituals for worshipping snake and also mention its religious and mythological significance. As per ancient beliefs, it is believed that the origin of snakes is associated with Lord Brahma, and that is the reason why worshipping them is considered auspicious. The son of Lord Brahma, known as Kashyapa had four wives. His first wife was the mother of all Devtas, second wife of Garudas, third wife of Nagas and fourth wife was the mother of all Asuras. The third wife of Kashyapa, named Kadroo, had given birth to Nagas. Therefore, Nagas (snakes) are also known by the name of Kadrooja.

    Nine Species of Snakes (Nagas)


    The Sanskrit names of 9 Great Nāgas are Anant, Vāsuki, Sheshnāg, Padmanābha, Kambala, Shankhapāla, Dhārtarāshtra, Takshaka, and Kaliya. Nag Panchami, also known as Bhratru Panchami, is the day when sisters along with their brothers worship snakes and their burrows (snake hole) to seek the blessings of snakes. Sisters performed this Puja for the well-being of their brothers, so that they do not suffer or steer clear of snake bites. This Hindu festival is also celebrated as Vishari Puja or Bishari Puja in some regions of the country, where Bisha or Visha means “poison”.

    Importance of Snakes in Hindu Religion and Vedic Astrology


    India has always been known as the land of snake worshippers and snakes. People of India celebrates the festival of Nag Panchami in honor of serpents and snakes. During the festival of Nag Panchami, people wash the snakes with milk ensuring their families safety from danger of snakes.

    It is believed that snakes are imbibed with more powers than humans. The connection of snakes with Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu and Lord Subramanya, shows their religious significance and hence, shows the devotion of Hindus towards cobra and other snakes throughout the country. The relation of snake with Moon nodes in Hindu astrology is known for more than one reason. It is believed that the tail of the snake is considered as Ketu (Dragon’s tail) and the head as Rahu (Dragon’s head). If seven planets of an individual are surrounded between Rahu and Ketu in reverse order, it is said that the person has Kalasarpa Dosha or defect due to black snakes in his Zodiac Chart. It brings bad luck and hardship in an individual’s life. Therefore, it can be rectified by worshipping the snakes on the day of Nag Panchami.


    Celebration of Nag Panchami in Different States


    In the state of Maharashtra, there is a city called Nagpur where snakes have special eminence. The name of the city is derived from the word Naga (means snake) as the place or the place is full of snakes. Mahal area in Nagpur has a temple called Nagoba, where worshippers offer special prayers to snakes on Nag Panchami day. It is said that the temple was found under the Neem tree, known as “Nagoba ka vota”.

    In Banaras (Varanasi), Akharas (where wrestling practice has been performed) are decorated on the day of Nag Panchami. Additionally, Akharas are cleaned and painted with images of snakes, priests, and the gurus. Here, the festival is important as wrestlers are the symbol of virility and Naga symbolizes the “scheme of virility”. Therefore, the decoration of Akharas and images of snake shows snakes drinking milk. 

    In Kashmir, snakes have been worshipped by Hindu people from a very long time. In north eastern states such as Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal and Assam, Goddess Manasa Devi is worshipped on this occasion. In Hindu mythology, Manasa Devi is considered the Queen of Snakes and sister of Vasuki. She is also believed to be the Snake Goddess, Jaratkaru, the same snake that was wrapped around Mandarachal mountain during Samudra Manthan. In Maharashtra, devotees go round the burrows (snake hole) and sing songs in praise of snake gods. Furthermore, Manasa plant symbolizing the Goddess Mansa is also worshipped on this day. It is not only worshiped in the month of Shravan, but also in the month of Bhadra.

    In Karnataka, the preparation for the festival starts on the New Moon day of Bhima Amavasya, which is five days prior to the festival of Panchami. The festival is celebrated within the boundaries of the house. The devotees offer raw milk and green Bananas. Girls offer prayers to the images made with white clay and painted with white dots. During the ritual, they offer prayers and take a vow by tying a thread dipped in turmeric paste on their right wrist. An image of snake is drawn on the floor in front of the house and milk is offered as a religious offering. Before one night of the festival, they complete the fast or take a salt free diet. After Puja, a delicious feast is held.

    It is observed that if Nag-Panchami is celebrated every year with devotion and gaiety, then snakes bestow the person with good health, wealth and happiness. However, if snakes are unhappy or angry, they make you sick and no medicine can heal your from pain or suffering.

However, India will remain prepared for facing the challenges that China will reflect on the country, and will also try to overcome China and Pakistan diplomatically.

    Inflation, Corruption and the Common Man


    Agitated by inflation, corruption, new rules and regulation, and the overbearing attitude of government officials, the common man may act aggressively or may show protest on the streets. However, the government will try to strengthen its administrative system, along with its working situation. As a result, government schemes would be fully implemented, which will benefit the citizens of the country.
