EYE ON THE SKY: Complex Web of Emotional Tangles.

Our mental and emotional energies are deeply impacted by the Nakshatras that the planets transit through.  While we can say that Venus in Libra is wonderful and that Jupiter in Scorpio is in a friends house, this gets a bit superficial.  How we feel is often guided by what constellation the moon is transiting through everyday and the constellations that our ascendant lord and dasha lord transit are transit  are also most important   Often a complex web of mental entanglements and emotions is tied up in a matrix in the way that the different planets are connected through the Nakshatras.

For example, Jupiter is Anuradha (Scorpio 3.20-16.40) until Christmas and while this constellation is good for spiritual work and meditation and spiritual networking and is very positive, it is channeling Saturn in Sagittarius  and Saturn is in the constellation of Mula (Sagittarius 10-13.20) ruled by Ketu and it is in the most difficult part  of that transit until Thanksgiving so some of Jupiter’s joy and expansion is tempered by Saturn’s struggling and suffering.

The Sun is in Rahu’s constellation of Swati until Nov. 6th channeling Rahu’s energy and Rahu is in the auspicious constellation of Pushya (Cancer 3.20-16.40) which is owned by Saturn.  And while Rahu is being uplifted in this constellation  by the higher energies of Brihaspati, the priest of the gods, he is still channeling Saturn’s energy and Saturn is not happy in Mula nakshatra as stated above.

Mercury went into Anuradha today  which is also ruled by Saturn and it can create more negative thinking by the association with Saturn so with all the malefic constellations, you can be subject to stress, fatigue, worry and anxiety. .

So you can see that four  major planets are very indirectly related to Saturn and Saturn is not exactly happy now so there is deep emotional grunge connected to loss of loved ones, loss of material prosperity and a desire to let go and transcend, to rest and to check out.

Remember,  Saturn is trying to move us into higher spiritual realms. So use all of this emotional grunge to go deeper into your spiritual practice. Take a meditation retreat.  Start a new spiritual practice and you will get through the next next month.  The key to the transit is severing the bondage which constricts us and this is the deepest lesson for the month of November.

Andrew Foss in Yoga of the Planets,  gives the Mantra and for Saturn in Pada 4 (Sagittarius 10-13.20):

Om dhanur mandala samsthaya Namaha.

This is a mouthful but if you know Sanskrit  it would be powerful through November. To be simpler, just do, Om Namah Shivya, 108 times to soften Saturn and help you server the bonds which are blocking you.
