Sun transits  into the constellation of Vishaka today  and will stay there until Nov. 20th.  (20.00 Libra-3.20 Scorpio). The constellations  is ruled by Agni and Indra and is a constellation of four stars forming the left half of the scales of Libra.  Agni has the ability to do Herculean talks to achieve its goals with great fiery energy and courage. Indra provides leadership but may create danger for those around one but may act cowardly at the first sign of danger.  People born with this constellation (ie, Sun, Moon, Rising sign or atmakaraka) are often seeking a bit of power and status and position.

The first section of this constellation (Libra 20-23.20 ruled by Aries) Nov. 7-10th  will foster strong new action to achieve one’s goals and give a new spurt of energy to a troubled month and it it great to get Sun out of Swati nakshatra where it has the ugly pull of Rahu, the North Node.  I always breathe a sigh of relief when this develops.  The Sun gives impetus for new material achievement the first 10 days of the transit and then when it goes into Scorpio on Nov. 16th there is a renewal for more spiritual energy in Pada 4 connected to Cancer in the D9.

Prash Trivedi notes that with  the frequency of unwholesome goals, it is a concern for handling vices and people born in this constellation call easily fall prey to alcohol, drugs and sex.  In essence, the Jupiter/Venus combination can bring in Vishakha natives have an urge to throng the local bar and to engage in the sensual and material energies of life.  There may be  love parties but this may lead to a sense of emptiness in their lives which ideally should lead to searching for deeper spiritual meaning. Those born in this constellation in the fourth pada (Scorpio 0-3.20) connected to Cancer will have a stronger spiritual drive to overcome vices.

Vishaka is connected to outcasts and outsiders and hence they do not follow traditional religious norms as one might think that Jupiter would. Hence they can often become artists, outsiders, people who want to change society.

Mercury is retrograding into Libra now and will do a rare conjunction with the Sun on Nov. 11th which is visible. .  This will allow you to see Mercury is a dark speck of black in front of the Sun and will be visible  from 12:35 GMT TO 18:04 GMT and will be seen in Russia, the Middle East, South American  and North America except Alaska and will also be seen in New Zealand.   Sun/Mercury conjunctions can create very busy and buzzy minds but that is often not the case when it is retrograde and I have never read anything about the psychological impact of this rare transit.   Sun conjunct Mercury this intensely is called Cazimi which brings the Divine heart of the Sun into Mercury’s being and hence spiritualizes it with a Divine infusion.  ( See Photo)

What our colleagues are saying:

Barry Rosen’s brilliant text  profoundly addresses the essential goals of both Vedic Astrology and Transpersonal Psychology. (1) How to make the unconscious more conscious. (2) How to assist in healing suffering and (3) To help us awaken from the cosmic dream into the ultimate reality. Barry’s poetic writings explores the psychological analysis through jyotish as well as the philosophical tenants of liberation. Well done my friend!!

Barry Rosen has made a valuable contribution to understanding how houses act in hidden ways in a Vedic chart, and his explanations and process are logical and easy to follow. This ranks with the Uttara Kalamrita as a book which reveals the incredible density of meaning contained in the houses in a Vedic chart, which are the most important part of chart interpretation from my perspective. Excellent work-

Dr. Gary Gomes, President Emeritus, CVA.

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 4 sections, Psychological and Emotional and Spiritual Dimensions of Vedic Astrology, Secrets of the Houses, Spiritual Astrology and Advanced Techniques in Vedic Astrology, 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.
