MYSTERIES OF THE 12TH HOUSE: UNLOCKING SUBCONSIOUS PATTERNS

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: MYSTERIES OF THE 12TH HOUSE

If you are Virgo rising, you have a lot of 12th house transits going on with Mercury and Sun in Leo and then Venus will go into Leo on Sept 15th. 12th house transits are challenging.

Astrologers tend to superficially lump 12th house challenges into losses and expenditures and foreign places but it is much richer.   The 12th house is deeply valued in the Vedic tradition because it brings in the deep subconscious realm and the rich spiritual realm of the void that leads to enlightenment if we can grasp its ineffable mysteries. Great things can happen if we are willing to unlock its mysteries.   Some of the additional 12th house significations include:

Loss on the material level leads to merging with the infinite for Moksha.

Loss of individual...

POINTS OF WEALTH PART 2: THE LUCK OF THE YOGI

EYE ON FINANCIAL ASTROLOGY:  THE YOGI POINT

The yogi point can give a secret point of prosperity and luck in your chart and is connected to the daily relationship between the Sun and the Moon.   It is connected to the daily panchanga. Everyday as the Sun and Moon move away from each other they create a Nitha Yoga.   Think of a scissors that is totally closed at the new moon and then opens gradually as the Sun and Moon move toward full moon and 180 degrees and then towards waning again. The various angles of the scissors creates key energy for your personal chart and for daily timing for muhurthas.

There are 27 Nithayogas  and they are counted from Pushya and they get tied to the 27 Nakshatras...

MARS TRINE URANUS SEPT 2ND: EXPLOSIVE SURPRISE AND VENTURING INTO NEW TERRITORY

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS TRINE URANUS

While Uranus is not considered much in traditional Vedic astrology, I find it important. It is a bit like Rahu and very connected to Aquarius and the co-owner of Virgo and has a very inventive and eccentric nature.  Dennis Harness, discussing it says:

 Prajapati is the lord of progeny and creativity. He “exerts his heat and duplicates himself” and his “divine voice sounds like thunder”.  One of the translations of Prajapati is Indra, the lord of thunder and lightening. A similarity to the planet Uranus can easily be seen. Uranus represents the Prometheus myth of bringing fire to earth, the bringer of change and innovation. Uranus is often associated with heat, lightening and thunder. He was also the father of Venus, the goddess of creativity...

THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING IN AN ANXIOUS WORLD

EYE ON BEING:  THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING IN AN ANXIOUS WORLD

I have personally been going through a lot of physical and emotional challenges and when I talk to my friends, I am hearing great distress also.  Our heart go out to the people of Texas and as I mentioned last week, no point in predicting calamity from the Eclipse but a huge point to respond and help others.

MARS CONJUNCT MERCURY: HANDLING DISPUTES AND FIGHTING AND ANGER

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: MARS CONJUNCT MERCURY SEPT. 3RD AND SEPT. 16th

It’s Tuesday, ruled by Mars and it is close to its most bitter enemy, Mercury and the squabbling and irritation will be high into the weekend when the two planets are in a planetary war.  If you do not find a way to release anger and conflict, it could spillover into accidents and fires and wounds and cuts.

We need to model ourselves after  kids.  They get angry, they let out their aggression and they may even get into a fight with another kid but then its over and they move on and they do not hold onto it.  As a adults we have been taught that fighting and aggression are bad and we repress it.  Find a way to get to let go of your anger in a positive way...

MARS IN LEO/MAGHA : FINDING YOUR POWER AND STAYING ALERT

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN LEO/REGULUS

Mars has just moved into Leo but is still weak in early degrees until Sept. 1st with the planet  in the difficult gandanta area (Leo 0-0.40 degrees) where problems seem tied up in knots and difficult to deal with.  Deep karmic suffering can plague the mind if you regret the past too much so let it go. Use the present to act and create new greatness in your life.

Mars in Magha nakshatra can bring out strong leadership qualities and in Leo it is strong to take on the world’s challenges and conquer big problems. Use the fire energy to act boldly and courageously.  Mars in the first three degrees (0.3.20 Leo) this week will be in dharma to do great and right action to benefit manfind...

The complexity of the astrology this weekend (August 26-27)  and into early in the week  is difficult .  Mars has just moved into Leo but is still weak in early degrees until Sept. 1st with the planet  in the difficult gandanta area (Leo 0-0.40 degrees) through Monday where problems seem tied up in knots and difficult to deal with.  Deep subconscious anger and regrets about the past can overshadow the mind and in some could lead to anger and violence and revenge.   There is a lot of fatigue still from the exhaustion from Cancer so continue to get extra rest.    Stay rested so that you are not sleep and fail to see potential problems.

The Sun is still recovering from the eclipse and will a bit happier when it move...

POINTS OF WEALTH IN YOUR CHART PART 1: SRI LAGNA

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: FINANCIAL ASTROLOGY AND THE POINTS OF WEALTH

There are three points of wealth in your chart, the Yogi Point, the Part of Fortune and the Sri Lagna.  Wealth is more than physical money as we have discussed in previous articles on the eight aspects of Lakshmi which include courage, success, the ability to manifest your desire, knowledge of your inner source and health.

See: (http://www.appliedvedicastrology.com/focus-nine-days-lakshmi-eight-aspects-wealth/

There are three major points in the chart that I look at to see if they will trigger sudden gains and sometimes longer ones: the Yogi point, the Part of Fortune and the Sri Lagna.  Many computer programs will calculate these for you like Sri Jyoti Star 7 and most of you would be bored if talked about the mathematics of ...

POST ECLIPSE NOTES IN THE AGE OF RAHU: THE THRILL IS GONE

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: POST-ECLIPSE NOTES

Hope you enjoyed whatever you did on the eclipse. I got a rare day off and spent 5 hours listening to sacred chants and having deep meditations and the eclipse delivered very deep spiritual experiences as I floated on mantras and the depths of the inner world were revealed as the lights went out.

We certain live in an age of Rahu where outer hype and sensationalism have become more important than cultivating longer-term Bliss.  The United States is in a Rahu Period based on the July 4, 1776 chart and so the excitement and thrill of the latest movie and having a moment of euphoria was sought by many and I heard wonderful experiences from people...

FOCUS ON LEO AUGUST 26-OCTOBER 12: COMPLEXITY IN LEADERSHIP AND ACTION

EYE ON THE SKY: FOCUS ON LEO: The Complexity of Leadership, Ego and Independence.

The Sun is the heart of the Kala Purusha and everyone derives power and vitality and health from his benevolent rays. He represents, courage, valor, royalty, fatherhood, victory and success. He is at home and strong in his own sign of Leo and now and moving away from Rahu and not in trouble until he takes a hit from Saturn the week of Sept. 10-15.

Mars goes into Leo on Saturday, August 26th  and it is a big relief getting out of Cancer where it has low energy but it has too many afflicted aspects with the conjunction with Rahu into Saturday (see earlier article this week) and not being free of it until Sept. 1st and then being conjunct the eclipse point into Sept. 4th and then being conjunct Mercury on Sept...
