MARS/SATURN CONJUNCTION–YOU BE SAFE OUT THERE, YA, HEAR!

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS/ SATURN CONJUNCT  APRIL 2ND

Mars moves is in a difficult part of the zodiac this week  in the Cancer section of Sagittarius (Pada 4/Mula) where it is in a 6/8 relationship in the D9 chart (Navamsha) where it brings up fatigue and difficult karmic grunge and conscious merky psychological patterns from the past to fill us with regret and anxiety and bubbling anger.   That will be over by Easter but then we get  even more fun.

It is moving toward a planetary war with Saturn April 1-4th where it is losing the war where anger and frustration and hasty running around can cause problems.

Saturn is weakened by the conjunction  and more anxious and Mars can be more reckless...

Applied Vedic Astrology - Dancing Candles

EYE ON THE SKY: VENUS IN ARIES: MARCH 26 – APRIL 19

Venus moves into Aries on March 26th and it is a big transition from the big expansive energy of Pisces into an enemy’s sign.  Venus in Aries creates passion but it can also turn into relationship fighting easily so stay on top of what you say to your significant other as Mercury is retrograde and very afflicted and confused communication could lead to major fighting.

Venus in Aries is aspected by Jupiter in transit with Jupiter in Libra and the exact opposition on April 18th. This aspect creates too much expansiveness and you have to watch overspending...

EYE IN THE SKY:  LOOK AHEAD INTO MID-APRIL 2018

Big change this weekend as Venus gets ready to go into Aries on Monday  leaves the exact point of exaltation at 27 Pisces on a Friday with moon in Taurus where there is a wonderful and expansive high and emotional fullness and moves into Aries on Monday an enemies sign.  Enjoy her fullness today for a peak of artistic creativity, friendship, love and comfort today.

HIDDEN INSIGHTS INTO MERCURY RETROGRADE: MARCH 22-APRIL 15TH

EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY RETROGRADE IN PISCES

Everyone cringes at the thought of Mercury retrograde but it is not bad for everyone and gets a lot of bad press.  You all  know about Mercury retrograde so I wanted to share some new things.  First of all if you were born with Mercury retrograde, you are more right-brain orientated and have more spatial orientation and recognize patterns and are not logical.  It will be interesting to observe if during Mercury retrograde you need to be more intuitive rather than logical during the  transit.

Secondary, Mercury retrograde is not bad for every rising sign...

RAHU IN HYRDREA/ASHLESHA–THE LAST OF THE WEIRD RAHU ENERGY

EYE ON THE SKY: RAHU IN ASHLESHA/PADA 1

Rahu transits backwards and spends about 6-8 months in a constellation and will complete its final 6 weeks in the constellation of Ashlesha (Cancer 16.40-30.00) which astronomers call Hydrae. It is one of the more difficult constellations of the zodiac and Rahu is considered debilitated in the Sagittarius pada of Cancer (Cancer 16.40-20.00) where it will stay until April 29th.   Because Mercury is in Pisces the until early May and debilitated Mercury is controlling Rahu, the energy is not favorable.

Unfavorable energy with Rahu in the  Sagittarius pada creates separation form father, ups and downs with finance, reversals of luck, difficulties with Gurus and different philosophies, ethics can be questionable...

SATURN/MARS AND MASTERING ANXIETY

EYE ON THE SKY:  DEALING WITH ANXIETY

With Mars moving toward Saturn, anxiety is increasing if you rush around too much and cannot find time to slow down.  Mars/ Saturn conjunction is April 2nd but is being felt now strongly and its impact may not be over until after April 15th in terms of closeness to Saturn but it is not out of Sagittarius until early May.   We are going to have master fear of the future or be miserable for a few months . The mind cannot have an emotion on an abstract level so it attaches to something in the environment and the attached fear to what is going on.  Whatever house is connected to Sagittarius in your chart is likely to feel the most anxiety but with Saturn aspecting Gemini, Virgo and Aquarius, those house will also be impacted.

Most of the things we fea...

VERNAL EQUINOX: TUESDAY, MARCH 20TH: SLOW DOWN AND REST

The Vernal equinox and the first day of spring happens in  New York  on Tuesday, March 20th, at 12:15 pm EDT for the start of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and for our friends in South America and Australia, it is a time for gratitude as harvest and Fall begins.  The electromagnetic energies shift at this time, affecting our own personal energies levels.  This can create extra energy, which can lead to intense work-alcoholism.  One has to avoid that energy and slow down, meditate more, and relax more or one could be prone to getting sick.  Time to create parties, go to festivals, enjoy more music.  Definitely a good time for meditation.   The ancients around the world knew this, and this is how they welcomed the new season.

The Mars/Saturn conjunction in Sagittarius is moving u...

FOCUS ON PISCES/REVATI: THE SPIRITUAL PAUSE THAT REFRESHES

EYE ON THE SKY: FOCUS  ON REVATI

Planets are starting to move into the constellation of zeta-Piscium (Pisces 16.40-30.00) which consists of around 27 faint stars  forming the tail of the fish in the constellation of Pisces .   In Vedic astrology this constellation is know as Revati meaning wealthy or transcendental.  Given the connection to the 12th sign of the zodiac connected to moksha or liberation the two meanings remind us that spiritual practice is our real wealth or the wealth that never dies.  Venus moved into Revati on March 15th and stays there until March 26th. Mercury moved into there March 13th and stays there until April 3rd.   The Sun travels through Revati March 31-April 13th every year so if you were born during that period, Revati has a strong impact on your life.

VEDIC NEW YEAR PREDICTIONS–MARCH 17: WHAT LIES AHEAD?

Applied Vedic Astrology - Catching the Sun

The New Year in Vedic Astrology Starts March 17th, 2018

Whereas western culture delights in January New Year predictions, the Vedic New Year calendar is often run for the new Moon in March after the spring solstice for the capital city of a country. Because the New Year begins after sunrise, Vedic astrologers will assign the ruler of the day to be ruler of the year and because the new moon is after sunrise, the Sun is the ruler of the Year. The chart is cast the capital city of your country for the new mono and predictions for the New Year are made accordingly.

In the Vedic calendar there is a deity or god that governs each year and they rotate each year for 60 years and they are connected to the Jupiter and Saturn returns, and that suggests that just like last time, Jupiter was in Libra a...
