SATURN, SUFFERING AND HARD WORK: STILL ANOTHER MONTH

EYE ON THE SKY: SATURN STILL DIGGING UP THE GRUNGE

There is a lot of suffering, anxiety, death or sickness  out there and too many people we have talked to have been touched by it  in some way.   We wrote last week about so many planets connected to Saturn,  and Saturn is in the constellation of Mula  (Sagittarius 0-13.20), there is a lot of Saturn/Ketu energy at work.

Mula is owned by Ketu and it  will not let you escape from the past.  It requires that you take responsibility for past karma and do something to make it right.  So like one of the 12 steps from AA, one has to make amends for those that we have hurt or injured and that has to be a theme for the coming years. So stretch out your hand first, say that you are sorry and do something to correct your mistakes.

This transi...

DEALING WITH ANGER: SUN/KETU AND THE LAST OF THE KALA/SARPA

EYE ON THE SKY: DEALING WITH ANGRY PLANETS

As we discussed yesterday, Sun moving toward Ketu into this weekend can bring up anger flares and with the Moon crossing Rahu at the eclipse this morning, our old friend the Kala Sarpa yoga in transit is back for a last bit of intensity until Sunday.  Kala Sarpa is when all the planets are hemmed in between Rahu and Ketu and it imbalances the lunar and solar energies and so there is too much male energy. Its great for getting stuff done but you may not take any prisoners in the process.  Mars is also channeling Saturn’s energy in the constellation of Anuradha (Scorpio 3.20-16.40) and it can bring up more anger.

As a soldier, Mars is used to dealing with long hours and fighting fatigue and is able to move forward and be heroic...

POST ECLIPSE OUTLOOK JAN. 31-FEB. 6TH: SUN CONJUNCT KETU–WATCH THE FIRE

EYE ON THE SKY: SUN CONJUNCT KETU JAN. 31-FEB. 5TH

This is a weird week between the eclipse with the Sun conjunct Ketu on February 3rd in the mean node system and perhaps a day earlier in the True Node system

Sun and Ketu are both fiery planets and their conjunction will increase that element. This transit brings up a lot of rajasic energy, which creates a lot of fiery energy to want to change everything. There is not enough calming satvic energy to keep one balanced. One may want to fly off the handle in all directions or lash out at a boss or supervisor or loved one if you cannot reign in this energy.

Drink coconut water or coconut milk to calm the fire. Channel the energy into exercise, drink calming herbal teas and stay away from spicy food, which will fan the flames...

SECRETS OF THE 2ND HOUSE: WHEN FOOD BECOMES LOVE

THE 2ND HOUSE : FAMILY AND FOOD AND MONEY : WHEN FOOD BECOMES LOVE

The 2nd house is very connected to family and early childhood and the ancestry we inherit.   It becomes an expression of how we were raised. As we grow older, our values change and often go beyond what our family taught us to eat and consume and it becomes an extension of the 1st house in terms of extending our identity.  Like the natural 2nd house of Taurus, it becomes a place of choices for what we eat, buy and what sustains our comfort.  It also reflects our attitude toward money.

Still the 2nd house is important to understanding our relationship with our family and the food that we were fed and the food that we enjoy.  Eating problems are intimately connected to family problems of not feeling nurtured our nourished...

GUIDE TO JANUARY 31 LUNAR ECLIPSE PART 1

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE MOON
JANUARY 31, 2017

18 DEGREES CANCER

EXACT: US 08:27 EST

Begins 10:51 GMT; Ends 16:08 GMT

 Visible in Northwestern South America, Western USA, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Eastern Africa, Eastern Europe.

 This is probably the most significant eclipse of the year as it is total and widely visible. It is said to have an impact within 20 days of where it is seen.

 The Moon is eclipsed in the lunar sign Ashlesha that is represented by a serpent and is connected with poisons and toxins. Emotionally, this is an intense eclipse and I never recommend watching them, particularly if you are Cancer rising. This would be a good time to be deep in meditation. 

Eclipses are good for meditation and that is the best way to spend time during an eclipse as the meditations...

MERCURY IN CAPRICORN: JAN. 27-FEB 14TH: HARD WORK TO GET COMMUNICATIONS DONE

Mercury enters Capricorn: January 27th at 14:33 EST

Mercury finally moves out of Sagittarius and away from being in the same sign as Saturn but now it moves into Saturn’s sign of Capricorn where hard work will pay-off with writing and communication projects.  Still this transit is not without afflictions with a movement toward Ketu later in the month and Rahu across the way and then eclipses are occurring in the Capricorn/Cancer axis disrupting communications or create surprises.

The first part of the transit is in the constellation of Uttara Ashadaha, ruled by the Sun between January 25 – February 2nd. The next constellation of Shravana (Capricorn 10-23.20) February 2nd — 10th is more problematic as Mercury is more uncomfortable with the Moon’s more feeling nature of connection with ot...

WEEKLY ASTROLOGICAL FORECAST: JAN. 24-31ST–WINTER BLAHS AND TOO MUCH SATURN

EYE ON THE SKY: TOO MUCH SATURN

There are too many connections to Saturn in the sky now and that creates stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression.  Mars is in Saturn’s nakshatra of Anuradha (Scorpio 3.20-16.40) until Feb. 6th.  The Sun in is Capricorn ruled by Saturn and then will be in Aquarius another Saturn sign until March 14th.   Venus is in Capricorn, a sign ruled by Saturn and then will move into Aquarius Feb 6th and then does not get into Pisces and free of Saturn’s influence until March 2nd.  Mercury has been conjunct Saturn this month in Sagittarius and then moves into Saturn’s signs of Capricorn and Aquarius and is not free from Saturn until March 3rd. Now this can be a bit typical for winter but there seems more of it than usual and Saturn is Mula’s nakshatra (Sagittarius 0-13...

SUN IN SHRAVANA: JAN. 24-FEB 6TH–SPIRITUAL SUCCESS

EYE ON THE SKY: SUN IN SHRAVANA: SPIRITUAL SUCCESS AND GOOD BUSINESS SENSE

The Sun  moved into the constellation of Sharvana Jan. 24th and stays there for the next 13 days until Feb. 6th.  The transit is not without its bumps this year with Ketu being in that constellation and the Sun being exact conjunct Ketu  having a 3 degree orb from Jan 30-Feb. 5th.  We also have the Super Moon/Lunar eclipse on Jan. 31st and we will have to write more about it.  Vishnu controls this constellation promoting spirituality with this transit and it is a very satvic constellation.  People born with the Sun in Shravna (Jan...

THE SHAKTI OF THE ZODIACAL SIGNS PART 2: VIRGO TO PISCES

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: NEW LIGHT ON ZODIACAL SIGNS PART 2: VIRGO-PISCES

The 2nd half of the zodiac has more karmic challenges than  shakti although Libra and Pisces, the natural benefics of course offer brighter spots.  Our goal is to help you develop a deeper and richer vocabulary to quickly describe and translate the meaning of signs, in whatever part of the zodiac they appear in anywhere in the chart  rather than to get caught using astrological cliches.  .

Below is a quick table of key words and purposes and shakti or power or challenges that can help you translate zodiacal signs wherever they appear in your chart.

VIRGO: Whenever a planet appears in Virgo in any sign of the zodiac it means where we need to be better, improve or be pure.   Being the natural 6th house of the zodia...
