My name is Dushyant Trivedi and am currently based in Mumbai, India. Having an engineering postgraduate degree and 36 years of experience in astrology allows me to use my analytical abilities as well as my experience to maximize the accuracy of my predictions. My post graduate was completed from Indian Institute of Technology (I.I.T) Bombay in Machine Tool Design. The Indian Institute of Technology is one of the most reputed educational institutions in the world and is often compared to the likes of Stanford and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A miniscule fraction of all those who apply for admission get into IIT – competition is tremendous and the quality of education is world class. In my present role as the Technical Director of a multinational Indian company, I provide strategic direction towards the technology and new product developments.
After having gone through the rigors of a post graduate degree in engineering, I am convinced that astrology has its foundations on scientific principles. Generations of my family have dedicated their lives to the study of astrology, and its sole purpose has been to benefit mankind. From early childhood, I have been a very avid student of astrology. My great grandfather and grandfather served as state astrologers in an erstwhile state of Idar (North Gujarat). This was a highly respected position and they looked upon it as their life mission to serve the masses via providing astrological advice. With their guidance and tutelage, I got an early start into learning the various intricacies of vedic astrology by spending my childhood years with my grandfather. I was witness to the predictions given by my grandfather to various people and that awareness and fascination propelled me into further research.
I started practicing astrology from 1970 onwards and till date I have seen more than 10,000 horoscopes averaging 2 per day. In my 36 years of experience, I have gained lot of insight into giving predictions to people of varied backgrounds. Before any advice is given, it is important to know the country, the family background and time frame.
Over the years, I have maintained a data base of all the horoscopes I have studied and the predictions – the results have been fascinating and I would be happy to share my experiences with you. I encourage you to make the most of my experience to improve the quality of your life.
Practiced Vedic astrology for over 33 years.
Analyzed over 7000 horoscopes at an average of two per day. Maintained a database of all the horoscopes and predictions to track performance.
Advised and consulted on various subjects such as:

On a more philosophical note, Vedic astrology is linked with the Vedic or yogic philosophy of India. Ancient rules and principles have been established. Brihat Samhita (Vol. 1: Ch. 2 : V.
3) describes the following qualifications of an astrologer:
"[The astrologer] … must be pure, skillful, bold, eloquent, possessed of a ready wit, a knower of time and place, filled with equanimity, not timid in assembly, victorious in debate with other astrologers, expert, free from vices, well-versed in the art of performing rituals of both curative and preventive types…, ever engaged in worshipping deities, [performing] observances and austerities, possessed of scientific knowledge … and capable of answering questions and prescribing remedies."
In his Brihat Samhita, Vol. 1, Ch. 2, "Canons for [the] Astrologer," Varahamihira gives more lengthy rules or qualifications for an astrologer. faculty and students should read the statements by Varahamihira and be aware of these ancient principles in their daily life and work as astrologers. In the classic Prasna Marga, attributed to Namoodiri Brahmin of Kerala, the following are given as Qualifications of an astrologer (Vol 1: Stanza 15):
"That person, who has mastery of this science [Vedic astrology], who has a good knowledge of mathematics, who leads a religious life, who is truthful, who is free from conceit and who is well versed in the Vedas, mantras, and tantras, he [she] alone can be called a Daivajnya or seer."
