Isolated Moon & Its Emotional Instability
How does the Moon become isolated? This is known as Kemadruma Yoga. It occurs when the Moon does not have planets either side of it. This makes for an isolated personality, a person who feels alone even in a crowd. They can be very individualistic and detached too. Komilla will discuss how the yoga is formed, what the cancellations are, and most importantly, how to deal with the loneliness and emotional instability.

Mysteries Of The Vedic Dasha System
The Vedic Dasha systems (planetary periods) are among the marvels of Vedic astrology. But to discern how effective the dasha will be, we need to see and understand each planet in the chart, what they signify and how they are configured with each other, especially through yogas and aspects, both in the birth chart and the Navamsha (9th harmonic) chart. Those will be triggered by the Dashas and transits. The Vimshottari dasha system is used here, analyzed against a backdrop of the larger historical trends.
