RAHU IN PUNARVASU/CASTOR AND POLLUX DEC 7-SEPT 27TH (True Node)
Rahu retrogrades back into the constellation of Punarvasu (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20) which is know as Castor and Pollux, the beloved twins in Western astronomy. This will happen in the mean node system on Jan. 4rd and in the true node system Dec. 7th. Transits of Rahu through a constellation are major and often last 8-9 month.
Punarvasu means “the return of the light” and has the divine ability to bring spiritual light into darkness and it reflects purity, satya (truth) and strong moral values. It’s shakti or power is “the ability to gain wealth or abundance”. The main deity is Aditi, the Cosmic Mother, who bestows her creative abundance on all who seek her blessings. This lunar mansion is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the great benefic.
Rahu in the constellation of Purnavasu until at least late September (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20) will connect it with Jupiter in Scorpio. The universal mothering and nurturing qualities of Purnarvasu will conflict with Rahu’s rebellious and attention seeking energy. In general, Rahu/Jupiter combinations tend to increase fear around losing ones spouse for women, conflicts with Gurus, moving away from traditional forms or religion into alternative forms of spirituality. Rahu is at odds with the Universal Mind and instead of working for the benefit of all, it can become selfish and self-centered and can utilize its self-centered energy to deceive and advance its own agenda.
This constellation provides nourishment and nurturing before the tough storms of Ardra (Gemini 6.40-20.00) which will start with Rahu in Ardra starting in the fall of 2019. It creates contentment and grounding energy but sometimes lacks foresight which leads to complications and adventures. If you were born with the Sun, Moon or Ascendent in this constellation, you have the qualities of a universal caregiver and are very generous.
The constellation is connected to the merchant caste and will support courage for business expansion during its transit with Rahu in Gemini and should be good for the economy still through Sept. 2019. It will be Rahu in Ardra that will stir up more economic storms.
The transit through the first part of Cancer (0-3.20) which happens in the true node system until March 23rd in the mean node system until March 6th . This section is a powerful part of the sky which is know as pushkara increasing creativity and overcoming obstacles. Rahu is exalted in Gemini when it goes in there after March 7th in the mean node system and after March 27th in the true node system and does best in the Pada 3 (Gemini 26.40-30.00) and Rahu can operate here without conflict for the benefit of mankind.
The nature of Rahu in Punarvasu in Cancer is positively influenced by the moon and Jupiter and can use its creativity to benefit the world. In the last pada of Gemini is it is powerful also but still may be too caught up in the material realm and advancing technology. Would think that technological advances will be strong through August 2019 with lots of advancement in technology on the drawing board but the manifestation of these may come later. Rahu will need to balance its material success with spirituality through yoga, meditation and other disciplines to stay balanced.

What fellow astrologers are saying about last year’s edition:
“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.”

What critics are saying: “Barry’ Poetic Tour de Force unveils lays of psychological wisdom that heals the troubled soul.–Jamie Bateman
Now on AMAZON IN SOFT BOUND EDITION FOR 24.95.
The book is accessible for people who do not know much about astrology and is meant for a larger audience and only small parts of it are technical .
The deepest purpose of astrology should allow us to see the Maya or illusion that runs through our mind and blocks us from seeing our own Divinity. Astrology should reveal our hidden patterns and not just affirm what we know about our self already. It is our hidden patterns and blind spots which get us into the most trouble and cause us the most suffering. It takes courage to look at them, bring them into the light and transforms them but that is why we are on the planet. It is much like Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day (1993). How many times do we have to repeat our lives and relive our pain or do we realize our flaws and actively work on them and transform ourselves into a more conscious and active and loving and compassionate person. In this brilliant collection of essays divided into 7 sections, Psychological and Emotional and Spiritual Dimensions of Vedic Astrology, Secrets of the Houses, Blind Spots. Spiritual Astrology, Relationship and Techniques, Barry reveals material beyond the ordinary in unveiling our True Self beyond the illusion. The great spiritual teacher Yogananda was fond of saying that most of what we call the spiritual battle is really a psychological battle and once that battle is won, the spiritual battle is a short one. This book aims to support you in deep spiritual growth with profound psychological insight.
Barry’s spiritual and psychological approach to astrology seeks to cut the puppet strings of the planets that impact our emotions and psychology and bind us to self-blame, doubt and fear, and anger. This useful guide will help you navigate your life.
