THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING IN AN ANXIOUS WORLD–GETTING THROUGH THE SUMMER

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. We have discussed the challenge of retrograde Saturn in the early part of Sagittarius with some of the worst part of that transit lifting by late July.  Retrograde Mars conjunct Ketu is no picnic also and now we have Mercury in Ashlesha (Hydrea–Cancer 16.20-29.59) until Sept. 3rd and we have to watch intentional  hatred and focusing on the negative in life or we will make it worse.   Mercury goes retrograde July 25th til August 18th in this difficult constellation and we will have to be on guard for poisons and toxins and keep our tongue sweet and not sharp like a snake.

JUPITER DIRECT IN LIBRA BY MOON OR RISING SIGN–A REVIEW

JUPITER DIRECT IN LIBRA BY RISING SIGN:

Jupiter goes direct this week on July 10th and is very powerful as it stands still the sky and will show its  most impact for good luck and good fortune on Thursday, July 12th.   Jupiter direct now will support marketing and expansion efforts in business and help get us through a difficult summer.  Jupiter will stay in Libra until Oct. 11th so here is a review of the final 3 months before Jupiter goes into Scorpio.

Here is our guide for Jupiter’s transits by rising sign or moon sign:

In Vedic astrology transits are often counted from the Moon because they impact the mind and emotions the most, but I find that transits from the ascendant are better at predicting material existence and even transits from the Sun should not be ignored for their impa...

MARS KETU CONJUNCT REVISIT AND SEETHING ANGER

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS CONJUNCT KETU:  DEALING WITH ANGER

If you watch small kids in a playground, they get angry, fully express it and then go back to being normal in five minutes.  Anger is a natural emotion that is often an expression of an unfulfilled desire.   Kids are great about it but we tend to repress our anger until it explodes and that is dangerous and can lead to violence and accidents fires and burns when it is not expressed.

Mars is within a few degrees of Ketu much of the summer until early October and we are going to have to master the slow burn or get burned.    On the highest level Mars/Ketu conjunctions in Capricorn can create frustration and tension around work or too much gun if we try to bowl through tasks too quickly...

MARS OUT OF BOUNDS JULY 6-SEPT. 29TH : WILD AND CRAZY

MARS OUT OF BOUNDS JULY 6-SEPT 29TH

I always learn a lot from my Western astrological friends and we have an interesting case for Mars coming up for about 3 months, where it goes out of bounds which is abbreviated as OBB.   From a Western astrological viewpoint, planets are out of bounds if they exceed 23.27 degrees north or south of the equator. We all know that the Sun reaches its maximum northern declination at the summer solstice and its maximum winter declination at the winter solstice so we can understand that the Moon, Mercury, Venus  and Mars have a potential extreme declination at different parts of the year  that can be too far north or too far south.  Vedic programs like Sri Jyoti Star do calculate this information on the Astronomical Data function.

Currently on July 4th, M...

YOUR HOLIDAY ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER FORECAST: JULY 2-12TH

EYE ON THE SKY: EARLY JULY ASTROLOGY

Some of the more difficult transits are ending this week. Sun will move out of the constellation of Ardra know as Betelgeuse (Gemini 6.40-19.59) on July 5th and enter into the more auspicious constellation of Punarvasu (Castor and Pollux, Gemini 20.00-Cancer. 3.20) for 13 days and that will take away some of the struggle and anxiety of Sun’s connection with Rahu that has been going on the past 10 days. More optimism will come with Jupiter in going stationary direct on July  10th and the trine to the Sun exact on July 5th will increase joy and confidence strongly into July 8th.

Venus moves into in Leo, late on July 4, 2018 until the end of the month...

BEST AND WORST HOUSE PLACEMENTS : THE PSYCHOLOGY OF HOUSE PLACEMENT

EYE ON ASTROLOGY:  DIG BALA AND MARANA KARAKA STHANA OR BEST AND WORST HOUSE PLACEMENT FOR PLANETS

Sometimes people who study Vedic astrology learn rules but if we do not understand their psychological nature  or how they function in a chart, we cannot help ourselves or our clients our understand what karma we have inherited. This article attempts to to turn difficult concepts into plain English so we can better understand it.

Certain planets do not do well in certain house  because their significations bring out their worse qualities and these placements can get ignored sometimes but they have a deep suffering quality and can bring out more karmic challenges than usual.  This has a fancy name of Marana Kararka Sthana but it just means that planets do not well in those houses...

RAHU IN THE CONSTELLATION OF PUSHYA–A REVIEW OF THE SUMMER

EYE ON THE SKY: RAHU IN PUSHYA : FOCUS ON LIBRA SECTION/PADA 3

Thought it was time to review Rahu in the constellation of Pushya. With Rahu clearly out of the worst section of this constellation (Pada 4/Scorpio) and into Pada/3 Libra there is some lightening as Rahu is friends with Libra as they both value material expansion, desire for luxury, and sensual indulgence so these area are highlighted now through Sept. 25th in the true node system.  The problem is the eclipses is that Mars is opposing Rahu and causing problems.

Mars is aspecting  Rahu from Capricorn increasing intense solar plexus energy and work-alcoholism and power trips...

ECONOMIC CLIMAX INTO 2019-2023: SATURN/PLUTO/KETU/JUPITER CONJUNCTION

EYE ON THE SKY: LONG-TERM SOCIETAL CYCLES

ASTRO-FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

LOOKING AHEAD INTO 2019-2023

Subscribers often want me to do long-term forecasting and I have stayed away from it over the past years because our world changes so quickly and difficult problems are being solved by new technologies. At the same time, the Central Banker/ Military Industrial Complex, media whitewash continues to leave us wondering about the end game as historically the world has never built up these unsustainable levels of debt that cannot end prettily without massive changes and reality checks that our leaders do not want to do. Even Trump’s 10 year balanced budget proposal is fraught with the naïve notion that we can have 3% growth over the next 10 year which has never happened.

No one is addressing the no...

WHEN WILL THE STORM CLOUDS LIFT? ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER FORECAST

EYE ON THE SKY:  ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER FORECAST

There is a lot of underlying tension in the air.  Some of it is  because Saturn is  retrograde into a more troubled part of the sign of Sagittarius into Mula nakshatra and is in the most difficult section of it until July 22nd but is still causing problems strongly until Sept. 6th when it goes direct. Retrograde malefics are more powerful to cause more problems and Saturn retrograde is increasing health issues and I have seen it come up for many including myself.  Saturn requires discipline so regular meditation, yoga, eating properly and staying away from vices can help...
