RAHU TRINE MARS- A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE DEC. 26-JAN. 3RD

EYE ON THE SKY: RAHU TRINE MARS Dec. 26-Jan. 3rd

Rahu, the planet of desire and ambition and deception is aspecting Mars the planet of action exactly on Dec. 27th  using the true node system and Dec. 28th in the mean node system and  is within the critical five degrees of impact until Jan. 2nd.    Mars is weak in the early degrees of Pisces until Friday where it is fallen in the D-9 chart and the aspect is occurring between two water signs in early degrees with Rahu about at 3 degrees Cancer.

The aspect  creates great energy to want to act, to move forward after not progressing for a long time and can unleash huge amounts of energy but if people getting in the way, it might lead to losing one’s temper easily.   With Mars a bit weak and not having energy until Dec. 28th, that unleash of energy is more likely to happen starting on Friday.

The key with this transit is take the energy for creative purposes and channel it to create great inventions or technological advancements but avoid being hasty or over-enthusiastic or accidents and overworking could stress the adrenals.  Health-wise, blood pressure can be increased if you do not slow down with this energy so be cautious and avoid being reckless or driving like a maniac and watch out for the other holiday drivers.     Calm Mars and pita with less spicy food, more coconut water and milk and more meditation. The Warrior Pose will balance Mars and allow it to stay more focused.

Since Rahu acts like Saturn and is an enemy of Mars, this aspect can be intense and difficult. It will promote outward courage but the vata/air element of Rahu may promote inner fear.  The tendency may be to lash out recklessly so be cautious.  If you have this aspect in your natal chart, it may promote good achievement with career, athleticism and adventure but avoid recklessness and watch rash tempers that might lead to violence. It can also lead to sexual adventures and conquesting. At its darkest, it can lead to violence so expect the news to be filled with more craziness than normal

On a mundane level, this aspect may lead to more political craziness than usual as Mars is about leadership and power and Rahu may drive politicians out of control to make rash decisions.  Lets hope that N. Korea does not decided to flex its muscles after recent disappointments.

On a spiritual level, Rahu/Mars can foster the courage to move through difficult spiritual challenges as is clear in the chart of Mahatma Gandhi, a great freedom fighter. On the darker side, John Dillon, the famous gangster had this energy. I suspect with two Jupiter nakshatras involved, the energy is going to be more about spiritual  adventures so venture into a new seminar or yoga class.  Jupiter is aspecting Mars now and they are exchanging houses (Parivartana Yoga)  between Scorpio and Cancer and this will also feed spiritual energy particularly or all the water signs.

Mars is in Purvabhadrapada/4 (Pisces 0-3.20) can have a great deal of spiritual awakening if it can overcome sexual temptation and Mars is likely to feed the sexual energy.    The Rahu aspect can create deception so watch out for shady deals through the end of the month.  On a mundane level, we always have to worry about terrorism with Mars/Rahu as violence can get stirred up for just causes so expect a blip on the world radar into the New Year.

On a personal level, slow down, rest more.  The adrenals will be firing and if you run around too much you will feel exhausted. Still the energy will be there to accomplish a lot and move through huge boulders and projects so it will at least get you unstuck.

Special thank to Komilla Sutton and Prash Trivedi and all my Jyotish Gurus for their guidance over the years.

“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.”

FINDING YOUR BLIND SPOTS USING ASTROLOGY: SPIRITUAL, EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL WISDOM TO HELP YOU UNCOVER YOUR UNCONSCIOUS PATTERNS AND HIDDEN FLAWS

19.95 for color pdf download; soon on Amazon black and white hard copy for 24.95.

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 .

SUMMARY:

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.
