What is Krishna’s Horoscope, Really?

Question: Also lord krishna’s horoscope. BV raman gave one version, Prashant trivedi given other. What horoscope ISKCON follows? I prefer prashant’s version.

Neither person has any authority or capacity to understand Svayam Bhagavan Sri Krsna. “Tarko ‘pratishtha” Only Mahajana yena gata sa pantah – one the great, great krsna-bhaktas have any intimate knowledge of Krsna all others make fools of themselves by discussing Krsna.

Bhagavat Purana, 10th skanda, 3rd dhyaya, 1st shloka tells that Krsna was born with all the stars and planets and houses in very very auspicious positions and combinations and specifically mentions the ascention of Aja-nakshatra (“Rohinii”). Several shlokas later, the Saaraartha-darshinii tika of Sripad Vishvanath Chakravarthi Thakur references an older astrological treatise named Kha Manikya (which now seems to have been lost) that gives full detail of Sri Krsna’s birth chart as follows: “The Moon, Mars, Mercury and Saturn were exalted. Taurus ascended. Jupiter was in Pisces. Sun was in Leo, Venus in Libra, Rahu was in Scorpio. It was midnight, on a wednesday, while the Moon was in Rohini.”

Anyone who refuses to accept this chart ought to have an exceedingly good reason why they are contradicting the guru parampara, sadhu vak, and saastra. I fully accept this chart.

I have three videos regarding interpretations of this horoscope – including the dasha cycles.

    Thanks for this.
    Krishna was a cancerian,born on the date 19 july as per hindu scriptures.
    What was Radha’s sun sign? and Krishna’s chart shows polygamy since he’d many wives?

      “july 19th” is not a hindu date – so how can you say “as per hindu scripture”. In the article above I have given an exact quote from “hindu scripture.” Please note that Krsna was born on the Krsna Ashthami of Shravana Maas. That is the “hindu date” – not July 19th.

      The sun sign by calendar month is for the savana zodiac – which is used for farming, etc. not for natal interpretation.

      Krsna and Radha both have the Sun in Leo.

      Krsna’s chart has Rahu in the 7th aspected by Jupiter from the 11th house. This is the first and fundamental indication for his infinite number of wives and lovers.

    as per the last article,how can one say that aries and capri are 100% compatible?One is fire and other is earth(ie going by elements alone).
