MARS IN REVATI TIL FEB. 5TH
Mars went into the constellation of zeta-Piscium (Pisces 16.40-30.00) which consists of around 27 faint stars forming the tail of the fish in the constellation of Pisces. In Vedic astrology this constellation is know as Revati meaning wealthy or transcendental. Given the connection to the 12th sign of the zodiac connected to moksha or liberation the two meanings remind us that spiritual practice is our real wealth or the wealth that never dies.
Revati is a very satvic or pure constellation that supports the spiritual warrior so service work or action that benefits humanity is supported the next three weeks. Mars’s highest energy is service to transform our society so get out their and volunteer for a good cause.
As Mars moves closer to an exact trine from good friend Jupiter into Feb 24-5, its brighter side will come out with this transit with is a braver outlook, generosity, devoted to ideals, and being an activist for legal causes. Scorpio and Aries rising will be most affected Aries being more troubled by expenses and trips to foreign countries and Scorpio rising probably getting enriched by spiritual knowledge and new spiritual initiations. Capricorn, Libra and Taurus rising actually may benefit most as it is a 3, 6 and 11th house transit from their rising signs. Pisces and Virgos will also be affected most by relationship and sexual tensions issues.
The famous Pisces fish represent the fish swimming its path in the sea is connected to life-path and the path to liberation but it is more as it is connecting to the universal mind and reminds us of the true meaning of Jai Guru Dev, Victory to the Big Mind. Only by letting go of our small ego and surrendering to the Divine will, do we stand a chance of transcending the changing world.
The deity of the constellation is Pushan, connected to the sun, who lights the paths to the Divine and is connected to travel whether mental journeys or spiritual pilgrimages. Both are the same. As Saul Bellow’s character in Henderson the Rain King proclaims, “all travel is mental travel.” Hence our outer quests are part of our inner quest to return to the Divine.
Revati is ruled by the planet Mercury and contains all the Divine wisdom that exists in the Universe as it allows one to understand the possibilities of the entire creation. With Mercury conjuct Ketu this past week, mental noise has been depressing and confused for Aries and Scorpio rising but they are separating now and that experience should be ending.
Hence as we get the spring transits through Revati and creating great yogas with Jupiter in Scorpio asp
The Sanskrit name for Mercury is Buddha (the enlightened one) and Mercury’s sense of humor reminds us that the journey to the Divine does not have to be a heavy and serious one but can be filled with tricks from the Guru and laughter. Still Mercury cannot lead us to the Divine without Jupiter the Guru. With Jupiter in Virgo (Mercury’s sign) and all the planets transiting through Mercury’s constellation in Pisces, the strong connections will foster the blending of spiritual awakening if search it out. Use these spring transit, starting with Mars now, to deepen your search for the mysteries of the universe, beyond the craziness of political nonsense so that you can find lasting peace.
Special thanks to Prash Trivedi for his insights into the wonderful constellation and to all my Gurus that continue to light the path. Blessing to you all this Thursday and enjoy the beauty and silence of winter!
