EYE ON THE SKY: DECEMBER SNEAK PREVIEW AND HOLIDAY OUTLOOK

EYE ON THE SKY:  DEC. SNEAK PREVIEW and HOLIDAY OUTLOOK

Dec. is a tense month but will at least bring in some optimism as planets move into Sagittarius which is why we like the Jovian expansiveness of the holidays. Sagittarius is a sign of higher learning, spiritual pilgrimages, religion, doing the right thing and connecting with the Divine so the Christmas season with planets starting to go into Sagittarius will call us back to our spiritual essence.  Still with Mercury retrograde into Scorpio until Dec.. 22nd and then not  back into Sagittarius until Jan. 6th, we will lose some  Sag. energy. Venus moves into Sagittarius on Dec. 20th and will join the Sun there which transits into Sag.  on Dec 16th.  The challenge is that the Sun will be creating combustion for Saturn Dec 5-Jan...

MORE ON MERCURY RETROGRADE: FIND THE HUMOR

EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY IN TRANSITION

Mercury is connected to the Greek god Hermes and is one of the planets connected to laughter and humor.   If we do not find the humor in situations that Mercury creates when retrograde and conjunct Saturn, we are going to be really flustered and frustrated.  I have failed miserably so far but may have  a chance still.   Tuesday night when we arrived at the Flagstaff, AZ airport, the rental car place had closed and not warned us. I then left a piece of luggage up there in the scramble to get a new car and get out of there and we had to go back to the airport and get it. Then at the conference I would continual lose and leave things in the rooms including my jacket, my thermos and I have still not found the key to the bed and breakfast...

SECRETS OF THE 12TH HOUSE PART 2: THE ASTROLOGY OF ENLIGHTENMENT

EYE ON SPIRITUAL ASTROLOGY: THE ASTROLOGY OF MOKSHA OR ENLIGHTENMENT

Did not get to cover much of this in my Sedona talk so more here for those interested in Moksha and the quest for enlightenment: Many of us that are attracted to astrology are also attracted to moksha or getting off the wheel of karma and getting enlightened. My first question in 1985 to Chakrapani Ullal during my first reading was whether I would get enlightened. I have always had a fascination with it  It is a very complex question and  and there are some answers in Vedic astrology but it really requires a 3-4 hour videotape and it is something I am still researching and exploring but will touch on some of my ideas here.

One of my spiritual teachers had taught me that there are 750 lives that we go through before we ...

SECRETS OF THE 8TH HOUSE: THE TRANSCENDENT REALM OF MAGIC AND TRANSFORMATION

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: SECRETS OF THE 8TH HOUSE: AND IT IS REALLY IS A SECRET.

The 8th house, like its natural counterpart the 8th sign of the zodiac, Scorpio is a mystical, sexual, transformative place filled with mystery,  surprise and highly charged energy. Its transits are dreaded but if we master it, it brings us major life transformation and new light to move toward liberation and freedom.  The 8th house is like the magician’s magical box—anything that goes in it can be transformed.   Will the lady get sawed in half and become a different person entirely. While many dread 8th house transits and dashas, we can understand and embrace them for deep knowledge and transformation.

The 8th house does represent the transcendental void that we often experience at the deepest point of medit...

SECRETS OF THE 12TH HOUSE: ACVA CONFERENCE SUMMARY

EYE ON THE SKY: MYSTERIES OF THE 12TH HOUSE:

Here is a quick summary of my talk on the 12th house at ACVA. I will give you a like below for the 2 hour talk if you would like to enjoy it.

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 identity to gain freedom.

House of clairv...

VEDIC ASTRO-LOCALITY: MOVING DOES CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND HERE’S WHY

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: VEDIC ASTRO-LOCALITY– THE DIFFERENCE FROM WESTERN ASTRO-LOCALITY

In Sedona for the Vedic Astrology conference and remember how astro-locality does change your life and have been refining my work on it.

Many of us think that our natal charts and where we are born are very static (like a line on stone)  and that we carry those influences and that chart throughout out life.  There are some such karmic influences and life lessons that we do take with us always, but charts and influences are very dynamic and change and rotate around where we move to and what cycles we are going through.  We often want to move because our chart may not work in our birth place and moving will shift our chart and our life...

MERCURY CONJUNCT SATURN AND THEN RETROGRADE DEC. 3RD

EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY IN TRANSITION

Mercury is in Sagittarius  moving toward conjunction with Saturn into Thursday, Nov. 28th. . Here for Mercury, poor judgment is a problem so with today being ruled by Mercury, you have to be careful about decision making particularly if you are Gemini or Virgo rising.

Mercury  is in the Mula gandanta (Sagittarius 0-3) until Monday the 27th where the haunting from the past beckon us to let go of difficult karma and be patient.  Mercury gets conjunct Saturn on Nov 28th at 1:58 am EST and does not get very far past Saturn as it prepared to go retrograde on Dec. 3rd until Dec. 22nd.

This upcoming Mercury retrograde may seem challenging because it is very close to Saturn until it retrogrades back into Scorpio and the gandanta area Dec...

NEW SIGNS GALORE: MAJOR TRANSITS THIS WEEK

SKY WATCH: EYE ON THE SKY NOV. 26-Dec. 1.

 Multiple planetary transits the next few days as Mercury went  into Sagittarius on Nov. 24th and moves toward conjunction with Saturn, Venus into Scorpio on Nov. 26th and Mars into Libra on Nov. 29th.  Saturn finally gets happier by Nov. 28th as it moves out the early degrees of Sagittarius.

Mercury stays in Sagittarius until Dec. 10th but because it goes retrograde on Dec. 3rd it will end up back in Scorpio Dec. 10-January 6th.  Mercury is afflicted by Saturn as we wrote yesterday with the conjunction into Nov. 28th and Dec. 6th. The 9th natural sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius,  brings lessons around belief, dogma and blind faith...

SECRETS OF THE 7TH HOUSE: VISITING THE FOREIGN TERRITORY OF THE LAND OF OZ

SECRETS OF THE 7TH HOUSE:  KNOW THYSELF AND FIND THE DIVINE IN YOUR PARTNER

With Venus in Virgo now and relationship energy at low for the year, it seemed like this was a time to write about the 7th house, the house of relationships  The 7th house is not always about marriage but also business parnerships and committed romantic relationships. When the love is deep enough, marriage often moves to the 12th house of sacrifice where we give up our personal needs in deep love to create a family. 

The 7th house is about learning compromise where two people come together to create something better than each does not have.  My dear friend often noted that a good business partnership is like 2 + 2 not just adding up to 4 but creating a 7...
