ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER REPORT FOR JAN. 20-28TH : A SPIRITUAL WEEK

ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER REPORT FOR JAN. 20-28TH: A SPIRITUAL WEEK

The week starts out with the full moon/lunar eclipse in the sign of Cancer tonight running about 8:30 pm-1:50 am Central Standard Time.  We have written about this extensively earlier in the week. Eclipses are good for meditation and that is the best way to spend time during an eclipse, as the meditations can be deeper. Outwardly the emotions and mind get a bit frazzled so never a good time to make major decisions during an eclipse. I usually do laundry, clean, or meditate to pass the time.

Both of my Gurus have advocated meditation during eclipses over the years. One  recently commented on this one: “The mind is connected with the moon, the body is connected with the Earth and the Sun is connected with both...

SUN CONJUNCT KETU JAN 16-20TH–SHORT FUSES AND FIERY SURPRISES

EYE ON THE SKY: SUN CONJUNCT KETU JAN 16-17.

Sun is conjunct Ketu in the mean node system on Jan. 16th and in the true node system on Jan. 17th and there is usually a 3 degree orb of influence which means until Jan. 20th and the Full Moon/Lunar eclipse into Monday there will be an impact.

Sun and Ketu are both fiery planets and their conjunct will increase that element. This transit brings up a lot of rajasic energy which creates a lot of fiery energy to want to change everything.  There is not enough calming satvic energy to keep one balanced.  One may want to fly off the handle in all directions or lash out a boss or supervisor or loved one if you cannot reign in this energy. Drink coconut water or coconut milk to calm the fire...

MAKARA SANKRANTI–SUN INTO CAPRICORN

Vedic Holiday: Makara Sankranti – A New Beginning

January 14th 2019

 Sun enters Capricorn

Sun moves into Capricorn on Jan. 14th—and it is a larger event than you might imagine. In the Vedic calendar, it is the real beginning of the New Year where the days start lengthening, and more light descends on the planet.

Surya, the Sun God, is regarded as the symbol of divinity and wisdom, and is one of the most important planets (heavenly bodies) of the zodiac and our daily lives. It represents a new kind of New Year — a “new beginning” for which we want to strengthen the Sun within in our lives.

Surya actually means self, representing in our Jyotishis (Vedic Astrology) charts both the big Self, and our little individual egos...

SATURN/PLUTO CONNECTIONS 2019-20

SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO and TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOLOGY

From personal experience I cannot ignore the impact of Pluto and its transformational power as it has gone over my ascendant and I have seen its power and impact on my solar plexus when it is stationary. Then again I am Scorpio rising which Western Astrology links to Scorpio. Ancient Vedic palm leaves in a Madras museum portent the discovery of the outer planets and Pluto is probably connected to Yama.

Saturn is moving toward conjunction with Pluto which is exact in Jan. 2020 but they will be within 5 degrees of each other by mid-Feb. We have an unusual cyclical return that we have not seen since 1982. On average we get a Saturn/Pluto conjunction every 34 years and it last happened in Nov. 1982 and next happens on Jan. 13, 2020...

RAHU AND THE IMMIGRATION CRISIS: BALANCING COMPASSION AND SAFETY

RAHU AND THE IMMIGRATION CRISIS: THE TWO SIDES OF THE SHADOW

The US went into a Rahu period in 2015 that lasts until Nov 2033.  Many of the European countries are in a Rahu period also and clearly the nature of greed, corruption and technological advance in the world suggest the Age of Rahu is very powerful and dominating.

Rahu governs immigrants and is very connected to criminals and politicians  and during the last US Rahu period 1895-1913, we also had huge waves of people coming to the United States from Europe and of course everyone has an immigration story in the US unless you are a Native American.

The quandary of immigration is balancing compassion and humanity with safety. It is no easy task...

SUN CONJUNCT PLUTO JAN. 11TH–INTENSE FIRE POWER

EYE ON THE SKY: SUN CONJUNCT PLUTO

In watching Pluto over the years, I have learned that it cannot be ignored from personal experience. And as we have written before, palm leaves in a Madras museum have predicted the discovery of 3 more planets and Pluto can be most connected to the god Yama who is not always about death but about transformation.

Whenver Pluto is strong, I feel it in my solar plexus and that has been the case with a strong influence of 2 degrees for the Sun/Pluto conjunction Jan. 9-13th.   Pluto/Sun conjunctions tend to be intense but can bring great power to whatever you do.  They force you to repair situations, relationships, material things that have broken down and need to be regenerated.

You may be forced to contend with a powerful boss or father figure that may ex...

MERCURY CONJUNCT SATURN AND JUPITER SQUARE NEPTUNE JAN. 13TH

MERCURY CONJUNCT SATURN INTO JANUARY 13TH

Mercury is in Sagittarius  moving toward conjunction with Saturn into Monday, Jan 13th . . Here for Mercury, poor judgment is a problem so with today being ruled by Mercury, you have to be careful about decision making particularly if you are Gemini or Virgo rising and on days ruled by Mercury which is either Wednesday, Jan 9th or Wednesday Jan. 16th.  Mercury conjunct Saturn may delay communications or create miscommunication but can also cause deep and penetrating intellectual activity particularly in the sign of Sagittarius...
