EYE ON THE SKY: SUN IN THE CONSTELLATION OF KRITTIKA (ARIES 26.40-TAURUS 10)
Sun transits into a new constellation of Krittika know by the West as the Pleiades on Thursday, May 11th and stays there until May 24th. Mars and Sun are friends with Sun in Aries and it promotes courage and leadership and is good transit. The Taurus section loses some strength and brings out the more material side of leadership and politics but it is still strong. Sun is strong in its own constellation although some think that it can be out of balance in this position. Sun has immense courage and confidence during this transit and can create great power to handle difficult situations. People born May 11-24th have a warm and fierce and supportive energy and know how to use their power wisely.
The first pada (Aries 27.00-30.00) is connected to Sagittarius and is a healing zone and is a place of immense strength for the warrior energy to come out and protect society and do battle for great good. Sun loses energy May 14-15th as it changes signs and is weak in degrees but then move into the 2nd Pada, May 15-17th where the mind feels secure and nurtured. The third Pada (May 18-21st) is always the most challenging section as loss and suffering and churning of deep fires of purification can happen here. Finally the 4th pada, (May 22-24) is owned by Pisces is particularly strong and has hidden positive qualities.
Sun conjunct Mars in Taurus starting May 15th. As Mars gets stronger May 17-25th in Taurus , it will support the Sun with strong goals and pride and achievement will develop, strong digestive and sexual prowess will be developed, good leadership and commitment will develop and it is a good transit for getting things done and getting good action out of your teammates at work or in sports competition.
Western astronomers connect this constellation with the Pleiades or the seven sisters. The ruling planet of the constellation is the Sun with Agni, the God of Fire, as the residing deity. The shakti of this lunar mansion is ‘the power to burn away the negativity to get to the truth”. Given all the smoke and mirrors with politics and the media, this energy will be welcome. It has has a stronger nature for fulfilling material desires and its symbol is a razor which cuts through the “bull” to get through to the truth. The constellation allows one to go through extreme purification and get through blocks on the path.
Of course Leos do best with the transit but Cancers also benefit. Aries and Scorpios may get a bit of a relationship burn if they cannot tone down their drive for success at all costs. Geminis do well with the 10th and 11th house transits of the Sun also.
