Notes on Lunar Theory

By S Niroshini

I. 

Avoid reading your birth-chart on your Blackberry.

II. 

For optimal viewing of planetary positions iPhones and Android are

best.

III. 

Just £4.99 ! to read your horoscope on tamastroguru.com.

IV. 

Be patient – you will be informed in due course of whom you will

marry, on what date you will die and under whose foot you must

avoid being buried.

V. 

Mourn the eventual loss of your youthful body.

VI. 

Your daughter will be born in seven years. Name her Padmini

பத்மினி, the one who is adrift upon a lotus.

VII. 

Her skin will be like charcoal. You will relish its beauty. Yours is the

colour of the curd your mother fed you.

VIII. 

One day your daughter will show you her palms, wet with alta, and

you will trace your fingers along them.

IX. 

Recite the mantra three times to avoid death. The priest refuses to

tell you its words.

X. 

You retrieve them from his bloodied tongue, anyway.

XI. 

Notice your daughter’s strong heart. You can see it right there in the

corner quadrant of the chart, adjacent to your own.
