Vitiligo (Leucoderma)
-Explained through Astrology

Vitiligo (pronounced vit-ill-EYE-go) is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body. Similar patches also appear on both the mucous membranes (tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose) and the retina (inner layer of the eyeball). The hair that grows on areas affected by vitiligo sometimes turns white [2]. Appearance is what is affected the most here. The native will not experience any pain or any other physical discomfort.

Married Twice – to the same person! 
Is there an astrostamp in their horoscopes?

It is quite common that the married couple divorce nowadays. But, it is not very common that these divorcees remarry in due course of time. However, there are many such examples in front of us. This is really intriguing! What makes them do so? Are they really soul mates? Or, is there a special attraction/bond between the two? If so, whether such a factor can be seen in their horoscopes? These were some of the questions that were haunting and a study was taken up to check out the charts of people who have married the same person after divorcing that person beforehand.

Many such examples were available among the Hollywood celebrities and authentic birth details of such people were also available in Astrodatabank.

During the study, it was noticed that not only some people have married the same person twice, but they divorced that person for the second time as well! This was something strange, but indicated a strong love-hate relationship between the two. Probably, there was not enough active life left to marry the same person for the third time.

Angelina Jolie underwent
double Mastectomy
- an astrological review of the event

Angelina Jolie has taken many bold decisions in her life and this one was probably the boldest so far. Angelina decided to go for double mastectomy to reduce the chances of getting breast cancer. She says that with this action of her, the chances of her getting breast cancer has come down to 5% from an earlier probability of 87%. It is great to see Brad Pitt fully supported her in this. The following lines have been taken from USA Today which reported the story on her:

About one in 500 women have a mutation in genes called BRCA1 or BRCA2, which are involved in repairing genetic mistakes.

Jolie said she was tested for the mutation because her mother died at age 56, nearly a decade after being diagnosed.

Having a mutation in BRCA1 gives women a 54% chance of developing breast cancer and a 39% chance of ovarian cancer by age 70, according to the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. Having a double mastectomy can reduce those risks by more than 90%, although there is still a small risk that cancer could develop in the skin left behind, or in the armpit.

Rare Twin Birth

"Mom gives birth to two sets of identical twins at Houston hospital" news item caught my attention. The following link gives the details of the news:

Rare Twin Birth

However, for ready reference, I am copying the news here:

A couple welcomed two sets of identical twins delivered at a Houston hospital on Valentine's Day. According to The Woman's Hospital of Texas where the babies were born, the odds of such a birth naturally is one in 70 million.

Tressa and Manuel Montalvo became parents to the tandem of twins last week after they were delivered within minutes of each other at the hospital. The boys developed in separate placenta and were delivered at 31 weeks.

Ace and Blaine were born at 8:51 a.m. weighing 3 pounds, 10 ounces, and 3 pounds, 15 ounces. Cash and Dylan were just one minute behind, born at 8:52 a.m. weighing 2 pounds, 15 ounces, and 3 pounds, 6 ounces.

Birth Time Rectification for
Twins born in two different countries

The details about the twins born in tow different countries can be read from my previous post titled "Twins born in two different countries!". And, in this post, I will demonstrate once more the applicability of Krishna's BTR Technique in rectifying the birth time for these twins. Those who are not aware of my BTR technique, please look at the appropriate post.

I have used "True Chitrapaksha Ayanamsha" as given in jHora astrological software.

Twins born in two different countries!
This news item reported by BBC attracted my attention as this is unheard of before and that I had done some research on twin's charts a few years back. The link to the actual story is given below:

The story goes like this:

A mother from Northumberland gave birth to twins less than two hours apart in two different countries.
Donna Keenan, 28, gave birth to Dylan Joseph at about 22:00 BST on 1 July in the living room of her house in Wooler.
After being taken 40 miles by ambulance to Borders General Hospital in Melrose, Scotland, Hannah Rose was born at 23:39 BST.
Miss Keenan and boyfriend, Joe Fox, 24, were watching the final of Euro 2012 when she went into labour.

I was curious to check out if the three rules that I formulated for twin charts would be applicable in this special case of twin births. Those who are interested in my write-up can take a look at Unique features of a twin's chart
