23 of 29 - Utthiradam (Uttara Ashada)
21. In that case, when does the effect of the celestial objects start for a human being?
Answer: For our calculations, we say that it is at birth. When the child comes out of the womb, it starts to directly get affected by changing temperatures, heat, rain, cold, bacteria, virus, etc! Hence, then on, it has become independent & has to be reactive to the environment, including the (a) gravity, light & heat of sun, (b) gravity, light of moon, (c) gravity of the bigger planets and (d) azimuth position of moon with respect to the place (Rahu and Ketu), etc.
In fact, the “protective” shield of parents is said to be there for a longer duration. Some astrologers say up to 27 years the negative effects are protected – that is, for example, the first 7 ½ year “Saturn” effect is supposed to be less due to this protection (heresay only please - don't quote me). The true effects are expected to be in the second cycle when Saturn is in the same zodiac as the birth zodiac!
Hence, the effects are not simple as x is here, y is there – so this is good, or that is bad. All factors have to be taken into account, which comes only from experienced astrologers who have learnt all the facets of Astrology.
