The Seventh house is the house of relationships. Primarily reckoned as the marriage relationship, the seventh house in fact scopes to include all relationships with others, albeit in the family, the workplace, the sporting groups we participate in, the community groups wherein we serve the public good and our peer group where we mix, socialise and have fun times. All these relationships come under the auspice of the 7th House. What then are the important matters of the 7th house and climate change?

The second house is readily known as a house of wealth. It is also a house of skill acquisition, where we learn the skills to earn our daily keep. In the matter of climate change, wealth has a larger meaning beyond any specific source of income – for climate change affects the entire planet. In this instance, we presume a Cancer lagna and look to Leo as 2nd House with Mercury conjunct Rahu. What opportunities exist for sources of wealth in the renewables sector with these planets in the 2nd House?

Rahu is a shadow planet - a subtle planet without form which has an important function - that of ensuring that events occur as defined in the soul contract, the map of journey through life. Jupiter is the guru - guru of higher learning, sacred teachings and enjoys everything with largesse. The placement of Jupiter in the birth chart can indicate strength (and capacity) of the intellect. The mind derives much - if not all - of its understandings from the intellect. From January through August 2016, Rahu and Jupiter will be closely aligned in Leo. In this article we raise the question, 'What is the effect of Rahu on the mind?"

This coming Full Moon on 9 September is one of three "super" moons in a row. Perhaps these full (super) Moons salute the three gods of Hinduism, Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara! As the Hierarchy – in the messages of Cosmic Sai Baba, Jalarm and Alcheringa – tell that group meditation for World Peace is particularly effective on full moon days, we offer a reflection on this coming "full moon" and the astrological significance surrounding this.

At the end of this month (July 2014) we will see the Moon will move into Virgo joining Rahu in Virgo for the first time in eighteen years. Some suggest this is a time when we may see hysteria emerge, for Rahu - smoky shadow planet - clouds the Moon, and perhaps, ever surging towards new horizons, clouds discrimination. We look to the various dimensions of Rahu conjunct Moon in Virgo, where Rahu will remain for the next 18 months.

Rahu and Ketu are always 180° apart. This constitutes an axis known as the Rahu-Ketu Axis or RKA. This axis is important as it divides the horoscope into two parts. This axis has a special relevance in health and disease and is of importance to medical astrology.
Both Rahu and Ketu are considered as malefics and any planets falling in the Rahu-Ketu axis get damaged. As Rahu and Ketu are both non-conformist, the damage tends to be revealed as unorthodox - opinions, beliefs, views, non-conformist to expectations and the status quo. While Rahu and Ketu are very good for the spiritual pursuits a person may have, they tend to damage the material dimensions of life.
On Monday, 14 July, the Rahu-Ketu axis will change from the Libra - Aries position it has held for the last 18 months. Ever retrograde, these shadow planets will retrograde out of Libra and Aries and move to a Virgo - Pisces axis early in the morning, where they will remain for the next 18 months. We look to the likely effects of this transition between signs and consider conjunctions and aspects.

This day of May 11, 2014 is Mohini Ekadashi. Mohini, as astrologers recall, plays a central role in the story of the two nodes, Rahu and Ketu. The demon Swabhanu engaged in deception as Mohini was doling out the amrith to the gods and at the same time, bestowing her bounteous beauty and enchantment upon the asuras - demons - who had fought the gods for the right to partake of amrit, the nectar of immortality. Mohini is the only ever female incarnation of Vishnu, the god of sustenance and preservation of kalapurusha, time and space.

Shadow planets Rahu and Ketu are ever retrograde in their motion. Forever chasing Sun and Moon in order that they might avenge their separation by Sun and Moon after the Churning of the Ocean. With such action, they cause the eclipse of Sun and Moon. As planets, they move through the birth chart and gochara (transit) in backwards - retrograde - moving motion and every 18 months, change signs and their all - important Rahu-Ketu Axis, which has significance for nations and their leadership in particular. They also elicit, by their transit and retrograde motion, changes within the human person. Rahu and Ketu affect all with their transits. During June of 2014, Rahu and Ketu will change signs (peyarchi).
