EYE ON ASTROLOGY:  Saturn  Conjunct Sun : Dec. 21st.

I learn a lot from my Western astrological friends. While combustion is one of the most damaging things for a planet in Vedic astrology,   it turns out total combustion within the last degree is a blessing.  Saturn will be conjunct the Sun in the Eastern US on Thursday the 21th at 4:09  pm EST but other parts of the world will experience it later.

The exact conjunction of the Sun with Saturn on Dec, 21st can be a really good thing and is  called cazimi and comes from medieval astrology and it used to refer to planets that are so close to a conjunction with the Sun that they are “in the heart” of the Sun. They actually become energized by the Sun and their most positive qualities come out. This will be a positive for Thursday and into about 7 am on Friday  when Saturn is within 40 minutes of the Sun.    An example of cazimi is Oprah Winfrey who has a cazimi Venus in her natal chart; it has made her an incredible star to women and brought out her acting and relationship abilities with the public to a pinnacle. Venus

Saturn Cazimi will impact Capricorn and Aquarius rising in a positive way and also if Saturn is in your first house or if it is your Atamakaraka or planet with the highest degree.  It could bring out hard work, reliability, efficiency, good at following work instructions precisely and could bring deep meditative transcendence.   The 1 day transit is short-lived and by Friday we are back to the intense grunge of Sun/Saturn so watch speeding and be kind to your boss.

All gratitude to my Jyotish Gurus and my spiritual gurus for their continued light and guidance.

Om Tat Sat.
