VEDIC HOLIDAY: VASANTA PANCHAMI JAN 21st

EYE ON VEDIC FESTIVALS: VASANT PANCHAMI

Vasant Panchami, also known as Shri Panchami, Basant Panchami, and Saraswati Panchami, is dedicated to Goddess Saraswati – the Goddess of knowledge, music, arts, science, and technology. The festival marks the beginning of the spring season – Vasant means ‘Spring’ and Panchami means ‘the fifth day’. Vasant Panchami is observed on the fifth day in the month of ‘Magha’ which typically falls in the month of January or February according to the Gregorian calendar.
Vasant Panchami celebrates the spring and harvest after the cold and dreary winter months. People choose this day to introduce kids to reading and writing. Kids are made to write their first letters in front of the Goddess Saraswati statue. The ritual is known as Akshar-Abhyasam or Vidya-Arambham. Students worship notebooks and educational items on the day and seek blessings of the goddess. Those involved in music seek the blessings of the goddess of music and art.
Goddess Saraswati is worshipped on Vasant Panchami day.  It is connected with the 5th Tithi  or lunar day of the month.  People worship Goddess Saraswati to get enlightened with knowledge and to get rid of lethargy, sluggishness and ignorance. It is an auspicious day running 5:03 am EST on Jan. 21st to 5:54 am EST on Jan. 22nd.

It is occurring with the Sun moving today into the hidden constellation in the zodiac called Abhijit (located at 6.40-11.13 Capricorn) which is considered one of the most auspicious stars and is the mysterious 28th nakshatra of the zodiac. In the Western astronomical traditions, it is know as Vega and the Sun transits through there for 5 days Jan. 20-25th.

Komilla Sutton notes that Abhijit means victorious and conquering completely and is connected to Brahma, the creator and also to Vishnu the preserver. It is a star where the individual can write their own destiny.  One can preserve the old and create something new.  This constellation is very powerful and gives one spiritual drive and the ability to want to win regardless of circumstances.  It is ruled by the Sun and it supports leadership during its transit in the  constellation Jan 20th in the afternoon until January 25th.

 

So good day on Sunday to be devoted to knowledge and wisdom and spiritual music.

VEDIC ASTROLOGY TRANSIT GUIDE FOR 2018 – 2019

What Barry’s colleagues are saying:

“This almanac is truly a masterpiece and labor of love. Barry is a gifted astrologer and writer. I have written yearly forecasts for over 30 years and understand the work, knowledge and dedication involved. It is so complete with everything a beginner or advanced student of astrology would need. The references to the planet’s transit through the signs, nakshatras, aspects, dates and times, plus their interpretations is fantastic. He even covers the effects these will have on individual countries. I am sure I will be referring to this manual frequently throughout the year.”

Joni Patry, author and Vedic Astrologer

“Barry Rosen’s brilliant text is a practical guide for any practicing astrologer. His book provides extensive research on the world of Jyotish as well as a detailed analysis of the planetary transits of 2018. My prediction is that it will become a classic cornerstone for any Vedic Astrology library.”

Dennis M. Harness, Ph.D. – President Emeritus, American College of Vedic Astrology.

“This is an amazing, well written book, gives deep insights into coming trends.  It uses dasha periods and transits which are Vedic astrology tools that are extremely accurate for predicting future events.
Barry also gives practical tools to deal with difficult transits to help you move gracefully through your life.”

“Barry Rosen lifts the spirit of Jyotish to new heights with his latest offering. From the practical considerations of how to plan your year, to the spiritual well-being always imbibed in his work; Barry inspires and comforts the soul.”
Gary O-Toole, Timeline Astrology 

“Barry Rosen’s reference work is comprehensible for those with minor astrological backgrounds, and is also useful for professionals as a yearly transit and progression guide. As a Neo-Vedic astrologer, Barry also uses the outer planets to help track world events both in finance and on the political and economic scene. Definitely a book to have on your shelf.”
