Mahila Jyotish Sangh Sthaapana Diwas

Sudha Bhattarai Banskota of Kirtipur Salyanstahn is involved in the astrology profession. In her opinion, after taking this profession, she was able to observe society more closely and her self-satisfaction increased by researching things in the world of life.

Sudha will serve in this profession for the rest of his life, as she has both a profession according to his interests and a satisfactory income. There are many women astrologers like Sudha all over Nepal, and the number and participation of women astrologers are increasing day by day.

Although times are changing, people's interest in and faith in traditional science has never decreased. For auspicious events such as marriage, fasting, house entry, laying the foundation of a new house, or seeking astrology consultation for planetary transits, Nepalis are also very interested in newspaper horoscopes and radio-television astrology programs.

Apart from this, professional astrologers are being established as a whole, who can eliminate people's curiosity by studying astrology. Some astrologers may not have time to meet for the next six months. And along with these things, many women make astrology their profession.
The participation and leadership of women in the profession of astrology have been very low since ancient times. But in recent times, the leadership of women in astrology has increased.

The female astrologers of Nepal have established the National Women's Astrology Association to advocate for their rights and organizational development. Every year on Baisakh 28, the foundation day of this association,

The 12th general meeting of the National Women's Astrology Association was held in Kathmandu on Paush 9th, 2079 B.S. On that occasion, veteran astrologers and experts in astrology came from the country and abroad.

At present, Ms. Rati Devi Joshi Shrestha is the president of the National Women's Astrology Association.

Where can we study astrology?
Currently, there are 19 Bidhyapeeths under Nepal Sanskrit University, 14 branches, and 5 affiliated. Along with Sanskrit, English, mathematics, and 17 other subjects are taught in these Bidhyapeeths. In recent times, the number of women studying Falit astrology has increased and many of them have expressed their happiness about making it a business. Those who studied at Valmiki are working in universities in 16 countries around the world, including Germany and America.
Licensing arrangements for astrologers and pundits in Nepal

The Nepal Panchang Development Committee has said that it will soon arrange licenses for astrologers and pundits. The Nepal Panchang Development Committee under the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation is going to provide training because, because of those who take to astrology and rituals without sufficient knowledge, distortions have been created in this field.

It is hoped that this decision of the Nepal government will bring more governance in the operation and expansion of astrology as a whole.

Best wishes to women astrologers in Nepal for the establishment of a professional association.
Best wishes

We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
