Its Saturday and good day for work and responsibility and discipline around spiritual practice like doing your yoga and exercise and meditation.   Yet if Saturn is afflicted in your natal chart or in transit (still close to Ketu) there can be a tendency toward laziness or lack of discipline or complaining about work.

The tendency is to complain with Saturn.  So often it is about work because Saturn governs work and it is such a larger part of our life.   Chances are if there were no problems at work, you would not have a job.  Be grateful the ever-constant series of problems at work.  Some people do not have a job.  Saturn rejoices in hard work, responsibility and doing the job with a stoic attitude.  Do not waste energy complaining–most of us have to work and we have to decide whether to do it with joy or with an attitude of an anvil sitting on our head.

There is a whirlpool of emotional churning going on as deep emotional patterns come up to be purified with Saturn and Ketu still  conjunct in the sign of work and the energy is not going to lift quickly and some of it will ease when Saturn goes into Capricorn in January. The energy is up for change so that one can move into a higher spiritual realm.   I have noticed more complaining on my part and hearing it from many others. When Saturn is out of balance it sees everything wrong with the world. Pity-party.

No one enjoys listening to someone complain for hours and in fact it is exhausting for your own energy and leads to hopelessness and frustration. It is very unconscious and we have to become conscious of it otherwise we will wear-out our friends and family members. What does it accomplish accept exhausting you and others and draining your mind.

Grumbling is replaced easily by gratitude and Jupiter  as an anecdote.  When you go to bed at night, write down or reflect on  5 good things that happened to you that day. Maybe someone smiled at you or your child told you they loved your or your dog licked your face.  There is always something wonderful.  The mind however, finds one bad thing and blows it up 100 fold and exaggerates it into a typhoon.  Yes, there are problems and they are real but we neglect basic things in our life.  Do we have a nice home that keeps us warm?  The homeless do not.  Do we have two eyes that can see the beauty of this world?  Some people are less fortunate.  Do we have a loving partner?  Many do not.  Focus on what works in your life and be happy and grateful.  Catch yourself before you pour out your problems on some undeserving friend for an hour.

Saturn is hard at work trying to make you miserable and focusing on the lack.  Turn the energy to the Divine and Jupiter and replace lack with gratitude, replace fault-finding with praise.  Do this exercise and you will get through an intense period of Saturn and Saturday.

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.
