Face Reading via Nakshtras

Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)


Nakshtra- based predictions are well known and a minute analysis of the degree of the planet and Lagan tells many thing and sufficiently accurately. Without dwelling on various aspects of Nakshtras, I would just tell you about the face reading- knowledge to be gained with experience and god-gifted institution. Face becomes responsible for love marriage and other mutual attractions. Face indicates forehead, cheeks, chin, ears and general shape including that of the nose. What one has to do is to being the face of the native in any sign for Aries to Pisces and after knowing the sign, co-relate the characteristics with lord of the sign i.e. the planet concerned. The Sun, the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. After your knowledge about nakshtras and what type of figure a particular nakshtra can give would help you in determining about the characteristics of the native and you are capable of giving some predictions on the basis of the face specially on account of lines in the forehead including baldness. Before proceeding further, I may mention that I have already test checked the placement of Saturn with reference to some persons who are baldly-partially or fully. Now about each nakshtra.
