MYSTERIES OF THE 10TH HOUSE:  THE ANGUISH AND DRIVE TO BE SOMEONE.

MYSTERIES OF THE 10TH HOUSE:  THE ANGUISH AND DRIVE TO BE SOMEONE

The 10th house is one of the most frequent avenues of discussion in readings because it is connected to status and the ambition and desire to be acknowledged and recognized in society and at work.  It is connected to the Sun and naturally at noon the Sun is at the highest point of the sky creating the 10th house cusp or MC in Western astrology.  When people do not acknowledge us and our talents, we suffer deeply because we possess a very deep desire to be seen and praised.  Every astrological house has its secret anguish but if we do not live up to our dreams to be a someone to be acknowledge and if we settle for a weak position working at  Walmart, our life inevitably suffers.

The 10th describes your career, your publi...

MARS IN CAPRICORN WITH KETU–GET USED TO IT FOR 6 MONTHS

MARS WITH KETU FOR 6 MONTHS–WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

 Mars went into  Capricorn on May 2nd and will stay there for about 6 months, and being closely connected to Ketu much of that time.  We we have to understand this transit in detail to deal with anger and explosive energy.  We think the most of the impact will not really be felt until after May 27th as Mars and Ketu are pretty far apart but then we are going to have to get use to it quickly because those two planets will be very close most of June-September  because Mars will go retrograde at the end of June and conjunct Ketu 3 times but will be within 3-5 degrees most of the summer fueling anger and great energy.  The exact most powerful days of the conjunction will be June 3, July 18, and September 22.

SECRETS OF ASTROLOGICAL TIMING: DIGGING DEEP WITH PREDICTIONS PART 1

SLIDING DOORS AND ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSES IN VEDIC ASTROLOGY

In  my 60’s now, and I have change my focus on prediction and moved a bit more toward helping people understand the karmic schools that they are in and the karmic lessons that are needed. I think spiritual people who do spiritual practice are not always hit by  hard karma at this point of their evolution but are given choices as to whether they are going to get it right this time in their work or relationship or taking care of their health.  It is always a lot like my favorite movie Ground Hog Day with Bill Murray from 1993. Do we make the same mistakes again and suffer or do we see our blind spots and make new choices.  Spiritual awareness, grace and meditation all make a difference.   We do have choice at difference junctures...

SATURN RETROGRADE REVISIT — INTENSITY AND HARD WORK

EYE ON THE SKY:  SATURN RETROGRADE

Purva Ashada Nakshatra April 17 – June 4
Mula Nakshatra: June 4 – September 6

It Saturday ruled by Saturn and the heaviness of Saturn and work and reponsibility is upon us today and time to review Saturn retrograde.

Saturn went  retrograde on April 17th  and teaches being patient with overcoming the lessons of the past and the pain and suffering that we are feeling.  Retrograde malefics are more powerful to create suffering and so intensity to change will increase. Ultimately Saturn is good in teaching us to be responsible, work hard, meditate and if you rise to the occasion and overcome laziness, lack of discipline, then the retrograde will not be difficult.  Use the transit to work on yourself and your life and do not be a victim.

Saturn beckon...

RAHU IN THE CONSTELLATION OF PUSHYA APRIL 29-DEC 7

EYE ON THE SKY: RAHU IN PUSHYA APRIL 29-DEC 7, 2018

With the mean node transit into Pusya on Thursday and the true node transit, this weekend, we are reprinting our article.  Pushya is one of the most auspicious constellation in the zodiac being connected to the chief deity, Brahaspati, the high priest of the gods. It turns out that most planets except Saturn are uplifted by transits through Pushya because the energy of the deity Brihaspati, priest of the Gods. Jupiter brings out  benevolence, generosity, compassion and joyfulness and optimism are generated through this constellation...

MARS IN CAPRICORN: MAY 2- NOV 5TH: POWER AND ENERGY–BUT MAYBE TOO MUCH

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN CAPRICORN

Mars moved into the last section of Sagittarius this morning and is getting ready for Capricorn.  Planets at the end of a sign are a bit weak and tired and this will particularly so April 30-May 2 so get more rest.  Still Mars is now connected to the Sun through the nakshatra channel and the Sun is exalted so ambition, confidence and leadership  are strong.

Mars moves into Capricorn on May 2nd and because it goes retrograde there June 26-August 27th, it spends six months in its sign of exaltation. May is the best month for this transit because of the connection with the exalted Sun through the Nakshatra Uttarashadha (Sagittarius 26.40-Capricorn 10). Action is quick and effective; stamina and higher energy are there for major tasks...

ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER FORECAST FOR APRIL 23-30 : THE CLOUDS ARE LIFTING AND GETTING LIGHTER

EYE ON THE SKY: THIS WEEK IN THE STARS 

The challenge this week is with Mercury which revisits its exact point of debilitation at 15 degrees Pisces into Thursday, April 26th.  This will be felt most on Wednesday, the day ruled by Mercury and Saturn is squaring Mercury that day so watch communications, computers and be patient with misunderstanding and writing projects that seem to take too long because you cannot think. The bright side is that spiritual energy is still strong for Geminis and Virgos through May 8th and will seem even better in Revati (Pisces 16.40-29.59) which begins on Saturday, April 28th.

Mars is strong this week and moves into the constellation of Uttara Shadha (Sagittarius 26.40-Capricorn 10)  on April 25th and stays there until May 28th and we will write more about...

PLUTO RETROGRADE: APRIL 22ND-SEPT. 30TH–THE POWER OF TRANSFORMATION

EYE ON THE SKY:  PLUTO RETROGRADE

If I had not had so many experiences with Pluto, I could easily disavow this tiny planet but its power is anything but tiny.  It is stationary today on April 22d at 27 degrees Sagittarius in the sidereal zodiac and if you have any planets at 25-29 degrees Sagittarius in your natal chart or at 25-29 degrees of Pisces, Gemini or Virgo, you will feel its impact most.

As it stations to go retrograde, I often experience intense energy in my solar plexus and great energy and that also may be because I am Scorpio rising which is a sign connected most to Pluto.     While not a traditional Vedic planet, the great Vedic astrologer, Nirendra Desai used the outer planets.  Dennis Harness notes that according to Mr...

HIDDEN FLAWS BY RISING SIGN PART 2 : THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

HIDDEN FLAWS BY RISING SIGN: THE ACHILLES HEEL

There are  inherent flaws or Achilles heels for certain rising signs based on the houses which it owns.  The more complex rising signs that are owned by Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn have Achilles heels or life-long issues. These are Gemini, Virgo (Mercury), Capricorn and Aquarius (owned by Saturn) and Sagittarius and Pisces (owned by Jupiter).  Libra owned by Venus also comes into this group. There are core life-lessons associated for these signs due to the placement of key planets for their signs and the houses they own. 

Often this is related to ownership of the 6th or 12th houses but sometimes the 7th houses is also involved so the relevant issues are challenges around habits, sacrifices and relationship...
