Harikesanallur Venkatraman - Astrologer


Everyday morning, between 7 to 7.30 AM, for OVER 10 years now, millions watch Harikesanallur Venkatraman in a Zee Tamil TV program called ‘Olimayamana Edhirkalam’, (meaning bright future). This particular program now has 20 million daily viewers from 72 different countries.  For these millions of viewers every day starts with him.

He first analyses the day astrologically and explains the planetary conditions prevailing on that particular day. His impeccable analytical skills and in-depth knowledge in astrological science makes this part an invaluable one as the position and placement of planets and stars on any given day have their own effect on any individual based on his own astrological signs.

He then proceeds to deliver the prediction for each and every zodiac (Rashi) which are widely accepted as perfect reflections of the zodiac conditions.

For the past 35 years, Harikesanallur Venkatraman has been writing music related articles and reviews in Tamil dailies and other magazines. His authority and expertise in Carnatic music is well known and his articles and reviews are received well by the readers and throughout the three decades he has created a tremendous respect and fan following even in this sphere.

For the past 20 years, in the month of December, his music reviews are being published in ‘Daily Thandhi’ newspaper. This particular month is when the Tamil month of ‘Margazhi’ falls and the entire month is celebrated as a music festival. All popular and talented Carnatic and Hindustani musicians and vocalists display their talent and provide a musical feast. It is well known that the feast never gets completed without the review of Harikesanallur Venkatraman.

In  ‘Kalki’ magazine, he had contributed to question / answer section on spirituality. This was an instantaneous success because of his thoughtful, true and witty answers. Every year on the eve of Tamil New year, with his accurate calculations he presents a list of auspicious days in the newspaper ‘Daily Thandhi’ for the benefit of the readers. This list also appears in his website - www.harikesanallur.com - from where viewers can view/download it as and when necessary, free of cost.

Even though he is an astrologer and a prominent spiritual personality, he stands firm in his faith that nameology and numerology are imaginative. Changing the name and re-writing the name with a different spelling will not have any effect on the planetary positions and will not have any effect on the future as being advocated by many others. This opinion is of vital importance as we see lots of numerologists and nameologists claim that they could change the future of any individual by changing the names and spelling.

Harikesanallur Venkatraman could be considered as the one and only astrologer who offers his astrological services selflessly without any branching claims to gain monetary benefits. His predictions would be exactly what they are as that has appeared in one’s zodiac and remedies that he offers will also be practical and effective with no monetary motivations.

Since May 2003, he has been appearing everyday throughout the year in any one or many TV channels and has been sharing his rich knowledge and experience to viewers that have consistently increased his follower base. His bold and exceptional discourses have almost become legendary.

With the exception of six weeks starting 1st December, he is available for personal consultation throughout the year, 4 days a week. Prior appointment is a must to visit him on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 AM to 10 PM.  Please note that days of consultation and time are subject to change.  Call the office on Mondays between 10 and 10.30 a.m. to fix up an appointment. He offers the consultancy service only at his office cum residence and not in any other place.
