EYE ON THE SKY: SUN AND VENUS IN SATURN’S CONSTELLATION OF PEGASUS :
Uttara Bhadrapada is associated with the constellations of Pegasus and Andromedae in Pisces and located at 3.20-16.40 of Pisces. The deity is Ahir Budhnya and part of Lord Shiva’s army, which reflects the warrior nature of this lunar mansion. The ruling planet, Saturn, provides great depth and spiritual discipline. The power expressed by the constellation is ‘the bringing of the cosmic rain’. This transit can increase spirituality and generosity but also brings out the darker energy of the sun, with more ego and arrogance. Doing more charitable work and service during this transit, which goes until March 31st, can sublimate the energies and transform them. Leo and Aries natives will have the most trouble with the Sun’s transit through their 8th house and 12th house, respectively. They will have to learn to accept their flaws and bend their egos in order to avoid friction and conflict at work and with superiors. This is not a time to speed on the highway if you are prone to traffic tickets nor to flaunt energy toward bosses or supervisors or toward other people in authority. So bow your head, hold your tongue, and help others, rather than seek self-glory.
The energy of this constellation is that of the wise old man and it is connected to the planet Saturn and it never acts hastily. The constellation is connected to responsibility. Still this constellation is usually fortunate for making and handling money-which is not always something that we connect with Pisces. On an esoteric level, it is connected to the crown chakra and represents the end of the journey of the kundalini energy moving toward liberation so one would think that it will promote meditation and calm Mars’ restless fire.
Venus retrograded back into the the constellation of Uttarabhadrapada on March 15th and stays there until April 9th. Venus is exalted here I think that retrograde benefics are more powerful but the combustion and closeness is a problem as we have written about for relationships until March 30th. So in April it will again fosters good relationships, generosity, and a desire for spiritual relationships that demand purity or artistic connections. The idealized love of Venus can work well in this constellation if you seek to find the Divine in your partner.
Still Mars in Venus’s nakshatra of Bharani can create squabbles and imbalanced passions at times so find a way to channel the 2nd chakra energy into creative expression rather than sexual passion. Avoid being too critical of your partner to avoid unnecessary fights. Saturn’s energy from the start wants perfection but given the current transits, it is too much to ask. Accept and let go and love them for who they are. Avoid self-centered financial focuses and remember to give 10% of your earnings to your favorite charity to purify money earned. Avoid being self-centered now and work toward a higher good.
Taurus rising continues to benefit most from this transit in Pisces and only Libras, Virgos and Gemini rising or moons have the most problems with this transit. Still Taurus and Libra have to stay rested with the combustion.
All gratitude to my Jyotish Gurus and my spiritual gurus for their continued light and guidance.
Om Tat Sat.
