In a recent case, a woman who did not take the prescribed medication during her pregnancy, gave birth to a child with extremely high risk of infection.

It allows family members to see them after they have departed, to keep memories alive, and like in this case, reach out to children she has not been able to spend time with. Her son will now be able to hear her voice, see her talking and catch a glimpse of the person his mother was.

Aries : Your profession is likely to dominate over your personal matters this week, foresees Ganesha. You will face some tricky situations in which your bosses may not be too happy with your work. Ganesha advises you to humbly accept your shortcomings and resolve to improve yourself. On the domestic front, the same thing may happen with your parents, but if they scold you, don't retaliate, give them the due respect they deserve and carry out their wishes to the best of your abilities. Since the stars are not much in your favour this week, you would do well to defer important decisions. In financial matters, be cautious about lending money to others, as well as make efforts to recover the money that people already owe to you. By the weekend, you may feel drained, so you may want to retreat to a peaceful place to recharge your batteries.Read More »from Weekly Forecast: 26th Jan to 01st Feb 2014

Our expert astrologers at GaneshaSpeaks.com advise you not to shoot your mouth or look negatively at situations.By yahooindia | GaneshaSpeaks.com – Mon 20 Jan, 2014 11:57 AM IST
Aries : This is going to be a rather favourable week for you, as things start to take a distinctly positive turn, foretells Ganesha. However, don't raise your expectations too high. Stay grounded and be contented with the good things that the Almighty blesses you with. Certain planetary transits are likely to make you a bit fussy, irritable and impatient, and you could end up taking decisions which may turn out to be less than judicious. So staying cool and composed will be of paramount importance. At work, make sure you don't overload yourself with work, take on only as much as you are sure you can achieve. Plan meticulously, set realistic targets and don't over-exert yourself, or else it may adversely affect your health. One thing that is sure to raise your spirits is that outstanding payments are likely to be repaid.Read More »from Weekly Forecast: 19th Jan to 25th Jan 2014
