Astrology, Spirituality & Sacred Sites: Shirdi Sai Baba. The astrogeographical resonance degrees of the saint`s house and temple site
Shirdi Sai Baba was an Indian saint, spiritual master and an archetypal indian “fakir” (poor man) who was beyond all religions. Sai Baba’s real name and birth place are unknown. Some sources mention that he was born on September 28, 1835 or 1836 with the sun in Libra.
Birth Date, Name and Place unknown
In the style of a serious Hinduistic Sadhu Sai Baba of Shirdi refused to provide information about his birth date, name, place, caste and the religion of his ancestor lines. His astrological birth data as shown in the astrological chart above appears like a partly plausible astrological reconstruction of his birth chart by a professional astrologer. The really strong and serious Mars- Mercury-Saturn conjunction provides an explanation for personal reasons why he would act so independently and also why he would not provide data about himself or refuse to function like a typical indian guru. The moon in Sagittarius the sign of success, luxury and brahmin culture is not particularly plausible to me. But it does offer an explanation of his work as a healer and shaman for the people who came to see him. The 5 planets in service-orientated air sign Libra the sign of openness, relationships orientation and of angels reflect the readiness to help and serve these people.

Aquarius is the resonator for Shirdi Sai Babas spiritual position as a seeker of the essence and truth beyond esoteric and pseudoreligious propaganda, dogma, commercial religion and staking territories in the mystical world and on the spiritual plane.
Sufi or Hindu Saint
During and after his lifetime Shirdi Sai Baba was revered by both Hindus and Muslims. The way he wore his clothes resembled rather a Sufi initiate than a Hindu saddhu. And even though he never revealed to his followers wether he was a muslim or a hindu it can be assumed that he had a strong relation to a muslim background. He lived in the ruins of a small muslim monastery but gave to it the purely hinduistic name “Dwarkamai”. The name is of high symbolic meaning as it refers to the Holy City of Dwarka the ancient capital of Lord Krishna in the State of Gujarat located at the Arabian Sea. “Mai” means mother. The important Dwarkadeesh Temple at Dwarka had been destroyed by the Gujarat Sultan Mahmud Begada In 1473 in the name of Islam.
Dwarakadheesh Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Krishna worshipped here as Dwarkadhish the ‘King of Dwarka’. The main shrine called Jagat Mandir is said to have been built in the 2nd or 1st centuries BC was enlarged in the 15th- 16th century AD.
