MARS SQUARE URANUS; SEPT. 18TH–EXPLOSIVE SURPRISES

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS SQUARE URANUS

While Uranus is not considered much in traditional Vedic astrology, I find it important. It is a bit like Rahu and very connected to Aquarius and has a very inventive and eccentric nature.  Dennis Harness, discussing it says:

Prajapati is the lord of progeny and creativity. He “exerts his heat and duplicates himself” and his “divine voice sounds like thunder”.  One of the translations of Prajapati is Indra, the lord of thunder and lightening. A similarity to the planet Uranus can easily be seen. Uranus represents the Prometheus myth of bringing fire to earth, the bringer of change and innovation. Uranus is often associated with heat, lightening and thunder. He was also the father of Venus, the goddess of creativity...

UNDERSTANDING VEDIC ASTRO-LOCALITY CHART AND SHIFTING YOUR CHART WHEN YOU MOVE

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: VEDIC ASTRO-LOCALITY– THE DIFFERENCE FROM WESTERN ASTRO-LOCALITY

Many of us think that our natal charts and where we are born are very static (like a line on stone)  and that we carry those influences and that chart throughout out life.  There are some such karmic influences and life lessons that we do take with us always, but charts and influences are very dynamic and change and rotate around where we move to and what cycles we are going through.  We often want to move because our chart may not work in our birth place and moving will shift our chart and our life.  If we have a good natal chart, then we may end up staying near home because the chart works.

(Note: I have a whole course on looking at our lives in multi-dimensional ways: MULTIPLE LEVELS OF EXISTENCE: I...

SECRET OF THE NAVAMSHA CHART/D-9–MICROSCOPIC SOUL INFORMATION

SECRETS OF NAVAMSHA/D-9 –MICROSCOPIC SOUL INFORMATION

There is so much to do with the Navamsha chart. Here is a summary of some of things we can use it for: It is often represent our chart after we are married or after around the age of 36 when our soul had matured. Later in life this chart may be more revealing than what we were born with.

The 1st, , 5th and 9th houses in the Navamsha chart  represent the talents of our soul:

  1. Planets in the 1st house tell us what talents we are born with. For example, Jupiter in the 1st house in the D-9 will make us a natural teacher or counselor or priest or coach.
  2. Planets in the 5th house are talents we grow into later in life perhaps in our college years.
  3. Planets in the 9th house represent talents for which we need a teacher, or Guru or guide to br...

MARS AND KETU IN ABHIJIT/VEGA NAKSHATRA–GREAT STRENGTH

EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN VEGA CONSTELLATION (Abhijit) :   SEPT. 14-28TH.

There is a hidden constellation in the zodiac called Abhijit (located at 6.40-11.13 Capricorn) which is considered one of the most auspicious stars and is the mysterious 28th nakshatras of the zodiac. In the Western astronomical traditions, it is know as Vega and the Mars  transits through there for 14 days Sept. 14-28th   It is in the final section of Uttara Shadha (Sag.26.40-Capricorn 10.00) and a bit into Shravana.

Komilla Sutton notes that Abhijit means victorious and conquering completely and is connected to Brahma, the creator and also to Vishnu the preserver. It is a star where the individual can write their own destiny.  One can preserve the old and create something new...

SUN IN VIRGO: SEPT. 17-OCT 17

SUN IN VIRGO: SEPTEMBER 17 – OCTOBER 17

Virgo is one my favorite constellations but it is riddled with challenges if you have Sun, Moon or Rising sign here.  It is a more material and business orientated planet that strives for spirituality. The sign is challenged by its quest to seek perfection in everything and being disappointed when it cannot be realized.  Virgo’s purpose is to work with their material life to perfection and not be dissatisfied with it. If they stop thinking of the future and start accepting their life the way it is and enjoying it, much of the dissatisfaction will go away. They are at war with their own imperfections and the imperfections of others but they need to dive deep and find the humor to lighten their worries...

SECRETS OF VEDIC REMEDIES–HONORING THE PRACTICE

SECRETS OF VEDIC  REMEDIES PART 1 : HONORING THE PRACTICE

Sometimes 8th and 12th house fixed karmas arise causing illness, loss, death, divorce and life-threatening situations.   8th house karmas requires us to surrender our will and our ego and accept karma that we inevitable have to go through and which we cannot avoid and is part of our purpose on the planet. 12th House Karma requires surrender to the Divine and trust in God’s plan. We can often only bow down and surrender.

We sometimes think that planetary mantras and pujas and fire ceremonies are magic bullets but we need to participate with reverence and honor.  The Sanskrit translation of one of the basic prayers to the Sun goes:

With loving reverence we bow to the Sun

whose exaltation brought this world into being

and whose...

MODERNIZING OUR VIEW OF FRIENDS AND ENEMIES AND GOOD AND BAD IN ASTROLOGY

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: New Light on Friends and Enemies Part 1

New students of astrology learn to memorize that Jupiter/Mars/Sun  and Moon are a cluster of friends and that Saturn/Venus and Mercury and Rahu   are a cluster of friends and while there are a lot of neutrals and other relationships, we often get lost and fail to translate this into English to help students and clients understand what it really means.  In modern times, it is rarely the case that an enemy will break into our house and attack us it is more often something more subtle so even using the word enemy lacks clarity.

People want to know if something is good or bad but that is rarely a  term to use as even the most challenging situations in life bring growth in our life and sometimes it may takes us years to understand thi...

MOVING TOWARD AN ASTROLOGY OF PRECISION–FINDING THE STRANDS OF DNA IN A CHART

EYE ON ASTROLOGY:  Going Deeper with our Probing and Microscopic Exploration. 

SECRETS OF TIMING
 I live in a community where people are involved in Vedic knowledge and most of the community has had one or more readings. Many of the people I have talked to have been jaded about their readings because they have not been accurate or there was a cultural difference between the person giving the reading and the client. The reading was “lost in translation.”  Even the best astrologers in the world may only be 70% accurate because there is some level of free will and spiritual people are aware to make better choices.

It is possible to get very specific information out of a chart that is very precise...
