"Dear Ganesh,

Your readings and advice were very helpful (in many ways!!), and I am very grateful for it. Your analysis of carrying pride was correct, I've always found myself being proud of my family ancestry and my social ideals. I agree that sometimes that might come across as arrogant or impolite since it may be projected in a unhealthy way and I need to be conscious of that, control it, and transcend the whole 'validation of masculinity' thing. I've never been the sort to pick fights, but exerting exuberant energy, yes, I've learnt that I definitely need to be conscious of that and control it, channeling/directing the energy in a meaningful way towards pursuing a goal.

You mentioned consciously working on Mars - that immediately resonated with me and has been on my mind for quite some time - I struggle with consistency. I've found, as I look back, that my life felt a lot more fulfilled during times when I had a solid physical routine and clear cut single minded goals to work towards in other areas of my life - I've just discovered that my most prominent of those memories fall under my Venus/Mars dasha (21/01/14 - 22/03/15) and to a lesser extent early years of the Venus/Rahu Dasha (23/03/2015 - 22/03/2018) which were particularly distinguished in this regard, I find that this period pretty much experientially gave me the blueprint that I need to execute to lead a healthy and balanced life.

"Ganesh, Once again thank you so so so much, from the bottom of my heart. I feel like my family is taking your life force- energy from you, your readings are so in depth and profound.

I appreciate your wisdom and your great care to read the cards and astrology for all of us to the point of exhaustion. I will work very hard on freeing my conscious and soul of worry fear and negative thoughts. To remember every morning as I wake up to practice meditation that my outer world is just an extension of my inner world. So your right that it is me and me alone that stands in the way of love and financial freedom or that allows the heart to see things painfully. Learning to drive the car- my emotions. I will still do the Hatha yoga and start going to the gym all week, it will be hard I know but I will do my best. Excited by what will come of the predictions- so thank you for trying so hard to draw the positive from all the cards and astrology.

YOU ARE SO APPRECIATED!!!!!! Sending you light & love & many blessings!!"

" Hi Ganesh,

I hope you are doing well — it’s been a while since I last emailed you and I just wanted to share some exciting news with you and again thank you for the great job you’ve done with the rectification for me!

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to get struck with some great news — I was offered a scholarship from my university based on financial need that covered all of my tuition and maintenance fees for the next 4 years which means I will have no debt from my studies! I had applied for it just because it was there in April not expecting anything to come from it but something has. I haven’t stopped crying all day and wasn’t able to sleep last night!

Out of curiosity, I went to check Ernst’s looking forward to it calendar to see that today August 30th was a 4/4 day for fortune with a star next to it! What a stroke of luck and good fortune and it has warmed my heart.

Once again, my deepest gratitude to you!"

There are a few here and there instances like - where my daughter repeats stuff, maintaining boundaries etc,
You were so correct about eating disorder - she has been eating tiny morsels that too mostly frozen food since past 2 years.
I'm so grateful that you have spent more than 2 hours to explain in detail everything including what needs to be done but I don't know how to do that - the only way is again investing all of myself in making her implement 1 or 2 things.
I definitely will ask her to start doing Hatha yoga, check out if there's any Somatic therapy around here, after a month continue with the new bach mix."

I am continuing to do it, so far they have called me for the second round of the interview which is tomorrow. I wanted to thank you in gratitude, if it wasn’t for your recommendation things were so stagnant. I am also feeling much calmer and am currently in my Gurus ashram in lock down in India. Very peaceful with nature and lot of meditations.

Feedback after the interview: So I finally got a job, it’s as a health coach itself which is what I was studying since I was laid off during the coronavirus. Happy to have a job.

I would like to schedule a dasha reading with you as I can do with improving many things in my life. I have benefited tremendously from your remedies.

"Around 2 weeks back, when you did the reading on my son, you had asked if we could recite the 4 mantras.

I have been alternating Ky chanting these mantras on mornings and evenings (on most days) - especially on Tuesday for Mars and Saturday’s for Shani.

So, my wife has to stop working and get to bed rest for around 3 months because she had to undergone a surgery in November. And when she started looking, the coronavirus pandemic hit and although she had a consulting offer, the company had to withdraw the offer because of the pandemic.

But a week back, a firm reached out to her through LinkedIn and it ended up converting into a full time offer and she is set to start next Monday.

The point being that it looks like changing the mantras may already be having a positive impact. I like to think of it that way.

My wife is very ambitious and she wants to achieve a lot of things in her professional career. So she was getting worried about being unemployed for a long time because of the pandemic. Fortunately for her, things turned around fairly quickly."

"I listened to the reading twice and I transcribed it: after a few days of reflection I really need to express my deep gratitude! Your choice to dedicate it mostly to the analysis of my Rahu-Ketu axis was perfectly appropriate, because my life challenges revolve around those themes, there is no doubt. You simply and clearly described some leitmotivs of my existence, my conscious torments and my subconscious patterns, unifying them in a sound interpretation: this is what I was looking for by choosing the intuitive reading. Some of your advices have put a sparkle of inspiration on my mind! You confirmed something I was considering lately: with a constant self-inquiry and a mastery of the mind it is possible to overcome/dissolve all those ego limitations and fears, finding then the right path and purpose. I really feel the information you gave to me is a solid foundation from which I can continue my quest for self-knowledge. There is something indescribable and, at the same time, intimately meaningful in all this experience, maybe I don't realise enough its scope: it seems that the divine will and mercy, life events and sorrows, jyotish and logic converge in a single point to reveal a lesson, a truth for the individual consciousness, mine in this case. So I feel blessed, in a sort of way, because that happened. This is why I'm grateful to you, Ganesh, because you acted as a catalyst in this process, through your experience and intuition. I truly respect your invaluable mission. Thank you very much indeed!"

"Thank you so much for a very good reading! You actually did it in the middle of the night, with the full moon on its peak. Good for me, I have been looking into my mailbox every day in hope to get it. *:) glad.

I have had a few readings in the past year that did not do much for me, so this was very helpful. I will listen to it many times and do my best to overcome the problems and become more disciplined in my spiritual practices and work on my relationships. It was very comforting to know that the card in themselves is so positive. That tells me that if I get some protection from the planetary influence I will be fine. This quote from your website tells me it is possible and confirms a lot of what you pointed out to me: "As Sri Krishna states in the Gita one must only partake in dharmic action and not be attached with the fruits of his/her action. A native should practice to see action in inaction and inaction in action, such natives will not come under the karmic influence of planets".

I will definitely contact you again. This is a very good start. Other astrologers that I have contacted have not been able to pinpoint it as you did. One of them was a very famous sidereal astrologer on the nodes that were very disappointing and one with tropical astrologer was also not that great. And one with western astrologer, a very special astrologer from Serbia, that told me to move far from Norway. He told me if not I will be very sick from disease.Very upsetting but it made me aware of the fact that I actually want to live and fight for a better life. In your reading I had the feeling its hope for me, I just need to do some work within myself and I will be fine. Jupiter and my Guru will also protect me."

"Recently  Mr. Ganesh did two astrological reading for me, one on my son's horoscope and the other for myself and my wife combined. Mr Ganesh's analysis of all horoscopes were really superb.  I am an individual with certain level of understanding of astrology and it took me two or three listening and re-listening of the audio reports to grasp the level of intricate details and accuracy of his analysis.  Mr. Ganesh easily weaves in planetary positions, transits, planetary aspects, conjunctions, historical perspective from mythology, remedies required to negate or minimize unfavorable planetary alignments in his report with ease.  The audio reports were very detailed and the attachments of  Rasi chart, divisional charts, vimshotri dasa periods, and shadbala calculations were very useful in deciphering the details in the audio report.  Mr. Ganesh honed in on the questions I posed in my request for consultation and the timings of the past events, reasoning behind certain ups and downs in our lives were all well correlated to planetary alignments and transits etc. He re-enforced my belief in astrology and I strongly believe in the predictive aspects of his reading as those are based on solid astrological grounds.  As a person of Indian origin I had no problems with the clarity of the audio but I suspect that Mr. Ganesh speaks a bit too fast for a 'foreign ear'.  I will recommend Mr. Ganesh with great enthusiasm to anyone who needs a serious astrological consultation."

His devotion for people and astrology seems to be much above than most of people would think of..! The remedies he gives, one should practice it. Because it really helped me already after doing it for a few days,if not immediately. I'm so happy that I had a chance to get such amazing reading from an astrologer who is truly devoted and probably one of the best with such warmth.

"Ganesh was very thorough and meticulous in the way he approached my chart and the reading. He is pursuing his PhD and has managed to learn simultaneously astrology and the card system (also he has very good spiritual awareness) which indicates to me that he is a very intelligent person. I am impressed and am simply amazed (I should have known it from the articles he posts in his website, but the reading gave me evidence of his capacity and dedication towards Jyotish – the science of light). I deeply appreciate the truthful reading, and am grateful to him for elaborating on the astrological techniques. He did not shy away from indicating the challenges in my chart; however, he had a genuinely compassionate narrative and tone.  He is very practical too. I wish him widespread fame and ever increasing prosperity. I know astrology to a certain extent, and I have been blessed with the ability to know a gem when I come across one, and Ganesh is one of those priceless gems.  I will not have any second thoughts on recommending his astrological services and counseling to my near and dear ones."

Ganesh is one of the most active in the groups answering some of the most complex questions the members of the group ask. His answers are precise and to the point. One day, I decided to seek help from him for a personal problem. He immediately responded asking for details about my situation and decided to take up my case and do a reading. After a few weeks, he responded with a detailed, thorough and accurate nature of my horoscope and future predictions. He continued to take a lot of his precious time answering all the questions I had on his predictions. All his responses were again very quick and thorough. I cannot emphasize enough, the accuracy of his predictions nailed down to the day the event occurred. He also took time to correct my birth time by a few seconds, after I had given him a run down of events that were happening at that time. To-date, I always refer to his predictions, important dates he mentions and remedies that he suggest to alleviate the afflictions in my chart. I truly consider myself lucky and gifted to have come across people like Ganesh who are a guiding light.In times of despair, his counseling and support helped me deal with very difficult situation and gave me hope and faith."

His chart reading made me see my life from a more positive angle. After 1.5 months of doing recommended planetary remedies even my friends notice that I am more positive than I was before and complaining less about life and weather. I do the practice every day in the mornings and I would advice everyone who is getting an astrological consultation to at least try it for some weeks.
