SNEAK PREVIEW: RAHU IN PUNARVASU (GEMINI 20-CANCER 3.20) DEC 2018

RAHU IN PUNARVASU/CASTOR AND POLLUX DEC 7-SEPT 27TH  (True Node)

Rahu retrogrades back into the constellation of  Punarvasu (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20)  which is know as Castor and Pollux, the beloved twins in Western astronomy. This will happen in the mean node system on Dec. 31st and in the true node system Dec. 7th. Transits of Rahu through a constellation are major and often last 8-9 month.

Punarvasu means “the return of the light” and has the divine ability to bring spiritual light into darkness and it  reflects purity, satya (truth) and strong moral values.  It’s shakti or power is “the ability to gain wealth or abundance”. The main deity is Aditi, the Cosmic Mother, who bestows her creative abundance on all who seek her blessings...

MARS IN SATABHISHA (AQUARIUS 6.40-20) -ACTION FOR SOCIETY OR SEETHING ANGER.

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN SATABHISHA (AQUARIUS 6.40-20) -ACTION FOR SOCIETY OR SEETHING ANGER.

Mars moves into the constellation of Satabhisha (Aquarius 6.40-20.00) in Aquarius on Nov. 17th and stays there until Dec. 7th. Aquarius is an air sign dominated by the Vata element and owned by Saturn and Rahu  and it can activate Mars to solve problems quickly but it also can  create quick waves of anger. On   the positive side it can create love of adventure and promoting  solutions with engineering, computer technology and bio-medicine.

Mars in this constellation will receive an exact aspect from Saturn on Nov. 27th with a 3 degree orb of influence Nov. 21- Dec. 2nd and with Mars in a Saturn sign and Mars being aspected by Saturn we can have a lot of anger, frustration and delays happening ...

TURNING POINTS: VENUS DIRECT, MERCURY RETROGRADE AND SUN IN SCORPIO

EYE ON THE SKY: TURNING POINTS

In financial astrology, when you have three major changes on any given day it often signals a turn in a market and focal point for emotional and psychological energy. Note even the day before this change, the stock market soared dramatically off of it lows on Thursday.

This is true with people.  Today, Mercury is stationary/retrograde at 5:33 pm EST and Venus went stationary direct at 2:50 am EST this morning and the Sun goes into Scorpio at 8:01 am EST today. We have written about all of these during the past week but for people it may signal a focal point or pivot point for your life or starting something new or starting a new trend.

Stationary planets are very powerful as James Braha has noted.  John F...

GETTING READY FOR MERCURY RETROGRADE: NOV. 16-DEC. 6TH

EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY RETROGRADE NOV 16-DEC 6TH

Everyone cringes at the thought of Mercury retrograde but it is not bad for everyone and gets a lot of bad press.  You all  know about Mercury retrograde so I wanted to share some new things.  First of all if you were born with Mercury retrograde, you are more right-brain orientated and have more spatial orientation and recognize patterns and are not logical.  It will be interesting to observe if during Mercury retrograde you need to be more intuitive rather than logical during the  transit.

Secondary, Mercury retrograde is not bad for every rising sign...

REVISIT: SATURN IN MULA/4 (SAG. 10-13.20) AND THE FINAL BATTLE

EYE ON THE SKY:  SATURN ON THE EDGE

With the tragedy of the fires in California, our hearts go out to all our displaced friends and to those who have lost loved ones or property.  The intensity of the current energy is very connected to Saturn in a very specific section of the sky.  Ironically, we are also suffering from too much smoke in Chicago from some problem in our hotel while visiting our 96 year old Dad.  May God protect you with angel’s swings and hold you in deeply in his bosom during all the trauma.

My colleague, Jeff Poole said it best in his post today:

You saw the frailty of the external world and how all you’ve been building to make you stable and safe, offers you no guarantees. This brings questions about the old seeming truths you’ve been believing in...

JUPITER COMBUSTION: NOV. 12-DEC. 10TH–FALSE OPTIMISM

EYE ON THE SKY :  JUPITER COMBUSTION

Jupiter is combust from Nov. 12th-Dec. 10th.   Combustion is one of the biggest afflictions for planets that really is not talked about enough as combust planets are burnt up and their significations are hurt. The Jupiter combustion creates false optimism, which can feel great, but then reality can set in after all the false hopes. Make practical decisions over the next few weeks and stay out of the Pisces cloud of optimism.

On an Ayurvedic level,  Jupiter governs the liver and it may be afflicted these next few weeks so drink  fresh organic squeezed lemon in some hot water in the morning to get that liver moving. All forms of the twist in Hatha yoga support the liver and help squeeze out toxins...

FOCUS ON SCORPIO AND SUN MOVING INTO SCORPIO ON NOV. 16TH

EYE ON THE SKY:  FOCUS ON SCORPIO

 Sun goes into Scorpio on Nov 16th and we already have Mercury and Jupiter there and Venus will go into Scorpio in January. This is one of the mysterious and dreaded signs of the zodiac. What does it mean?

If you have Sun or Moon or Scorpio Rising, you may have the following qualities: being complex, having extreme likes and dislikes, being impulsive, a space cadet, having deep past life karma and suffering and facing financial challenges if Ketu dominates.  If Mars and Ketu are strong in the chart and if it is unafflicted you may be devoted and nourish your friends and have a tendency to fix broken people. You have a deep feeling level and are highly intuitive, shrewd and have a tendency to inspire others toward their spirituality...

SNEAK PREVIEW 2019-20 GLOBAL ECONOMICS : SATURN/PLUTO/KETU

EYE ON ASTRO-ECONOMICS:

There is a climax into January 13, 2020 with Saturn conjunct Pluto; when the karmic backlash of the abuse of power and the misuse of advanced technology can be the most severe. This could lead to unleashing of deadly power in the hands of organized purposeful institutionalized groups. On the bright side, there is a chance to overcome our most destructive spiritual ignorance, and our deepest fears, which have manifested as the institutionalized evils of oppression tyranny and war.

Also, in 2020 there are several key cycles that are important, which indicate a new populist experiment in religious, economic, political and social organization as Jupiter conjuncts the south node, Ketu. The alternative would be an increase in more out-of-control elitist corruption...

A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM–SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVES ON POLITICS

EYE ON THE WORLD:  ASTROLOGY, POLITICS AND BATTLE OF THE TITANS.

Its Election Day and if you have watched me over the years, I steer away from politics these days to keep my sanity.  Politicians are part of the warrior caste and many of them have signatures in their charts connected to Sun/Rahu or Moon/Rahu which suggest striving for public attention or power.  I remember when Trump acknowledged Clinton after the third debate, he said “she was a good fighter.”  Warriors have a different role in society to protect the people and yet when Mars or the Sun is afflicted it becomes about personal ego and glory and shaming your enemy.  We rarely get statesmen like Kennedy or Churchill any longer who really are visionaries who really care about their world...

MARS ON THE EDGE AND RAHU TRINING JUPITER–HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK

EYE ON THE SKY : MARS ON THE EDGE.

Mars is at 29 degrees Capricorn and getting ready to move into Aquarius on Tuesday. It is considered weak through Wednesday when it is between two sign like a person moving and packed up but not unpacked at the next location.  Planets at 29-1 degree are often weak and manifest their darker qualities.

Mars has had extra energy in Capricorn and has been 3 times as powerful since last spring and suddenly that energy is disappearing.  If you are Aries or Capricorn rising, take more time to rest the next few days, cut down on your ambition and get a handle on your anger if frustration and blocks arise.  This may be more apparent on Tuesday, which is ruled by Mars.

We are also dealing with Rahu trining Jupiter exactly this week where Rahu and create too much...
