This has been proved true in the case of
Phoolandevi, once a dacoit who terrorised the Chambal ravines, now
reformed and serving the people through politics. Phoolandevi, who
has withstood many onslaughts against her, is a firm believer in
astrology. According to her, astrology is a subject of the ancient
past of the Hindu Rajya. However in her case, some predictions have
come true and some have not. Phoolan recalls an occasion. "I
was planning for a surrender. It was inside the deep jungle on a hot
sunny day. Myself and my associates were cooling ourselves in a lake
nearby. A Baba called me aside and touched my forehead. Then he said
that I will surrender in two months time and I will have to fight
for my cause. I not only surrendered but also struggled to come out
of the jail. Baba's prediction turned out to be true. During another
occasion, when I was in Gwalior Jail, an inmate who knew astrology
asked me to keep some wheat grain before him. I did so. After some
calculations he said that I would be released before he would be out
of jail. I was released and the prediction came true. I met yet
another astrologer in the same jail who after looking at my palms
wondered why I was still languishing in the jail as I was destined
to be a leader. I didn't take his predictions seriously at first.
But later when I became a M.P. from the Samajwadi Party, his
prediction also came true. Another pandit once told me that I will
go abroad. I visited many foreign countries". Phoolan believes
in Goddess Durga. "Durga Maa has stood by me in my good and bad
days. I have faith in her" she said. The ex.dacoit Queen said
that she herself had not taken the gun on her shoulder to become a
Dacoit. It was only the circumstances which were responsible for it.
"I was kidnapped by a dacoit in my childhood. Therefore I had
to fight for survival" she alleged. Phoolan insists that the
film "Bandit Queen" was filmed by Shekar Kapoor inspite of
her opposition. She is of the opinion that the dreaded poacher
Veerappan should surrender and face the law.
Phoolan who represented Mirzapur constituency in
U.P. claims that she had undertaken many welfare measures for the
upliftment of the Adivasi tribes.
She is wearing a Pukraj ring to benefit her
rashi and a white Topaz ring presented by a Baba. She claim that
her age is 36 years. She believes that she was born during the
monsoon between June and July, 6 days after Sri Krishna
Janmashtami, near Sheknuragoda in U.P.
Life Line starts
leaving a gap from Head line and goes down upto age 52. Then there
is a break. A new line by its side starts and goes down. This
indicates that the subject will be sick and hospitalised at the
age of 52 for some time. The new side-line saves the subject from
illness and extends the longevity upto age 65. From the age of 52
to 65, the subject will not have good health.
starting with a group from Life line indicates extreme rashness of
nature and falling into danger.
Thumb short and
thick in the second phalanx, indicates that the subject is
responsible for a number of deaths. A horizontal line from the
region of the base of the thumb cutting the Line of Life shows
obstacles in life caused by others, especially domestic life.
A large Venus Mount,
Line of Head drooping downwards. A cross in the triangle; short
Headline and Heart line all these factors are responsible for the
murders, the native committed.
Fate Line : A
line has started at an early age on Life Line and has gone upto
Headline and stops there. For sometime, the native must have
followed her father's profession. Then a new line starts on Head
line at the age of 35 and joins the Heart line at the age of 55.
This Line has completely changed the attitude of the subject
towards the past way of life. The native would he well settled in
life between the ages 35 to 55. The subject will have good
prospects during this period. The same Fate line goes upto age 70.
Regarding the marriage line on the Mount of Mercury, there exist
two lines, one at the age of 23 and the other at 30. The subject
might have settled down in marital life at the age of 30.
Mount of Venus
is normal in size. A strong line on this Mount indicates that the
subject must have one son with strong constitution.
Mount of Moon :

A square on Life
line is the cause of the subject's conviction in a criminal case.
Well developed Mount of Jupiter
has led the subject to good status in life.
An island on the
Fateline at the age of 56 will get the subject into trouble
financially and otherwise. But, as the line proceeds further, it
may not last long.
Sun Line is well
formed from age 35 to 42, then the line has got distorted. This
will affect the native financially.
