What is Gandanta?

Ganda means knot AND anta means to end something.

This is a karmic knot. What it means is – During any planet in Gandanta - one has urge to do something extraordinary in life. The thought process gets converted to the real time actions and an individual starts with practical implementation of his/her thought process.

One feels the transformation; one can feel the change. Wherever you have sign of fiery/watery and planets transiting though it will give transformation to that particular house. One tries to prove the greatness of self in that particular domain where he/she excels and If it joins with ASC/V/X/XI lord, an individual thinks they are the best and are unbeaten.
