December 2015 and Nakshatras

This month we look to the energies of the nakshatras to see where the energies are flowing and the gunas - impulses to action - flow. We all have differing balances of the gunas. Planets and nakshatras both have guna qualities as do signs and houses, so another way of taking up what Vedic Astrology has to offer. We note several planets will bring challenges to all, just as the world faces challenges and solutions at the Paris Climate Change conference. May we look to the planets for our welfare! Read more

A look inside October 2015

October is the tenth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar, coming after September and before November. It has 31 days. Its name comes from Latin oct, meaning eight, as it was the eighth month of the year in the Old Roman Calendar before January and February were added to the beginning of the year, though its name did not change. The tenth month at the time was December. We take a look at the planets for October 2015. Read more

Meditation and the Five Sheaths

As the chaotic nodes of religious fanaticism, ecosystem collapse, corporate greed and manipulation and climate change grow momentum, expand of their own accord and multiply their energetic sheaths, in these days of the Moon hemmed in by malefics, Saturn direct, Mars debilitated about to conjunct Venus by degree, and Jupiter in Leo no longer aspecting Saturn, there can be challenges. We look to offer you a simple, energy visualistion to keep you balanced in the days to come, as the subtle energies of the planets continue to flow to us. Hence the iceberg: the subtle energies of the planets touch us on levels we do not ordinarily perceive. Read more

The return of the light: Uranus and the 5th Dimension

Since the end of the Thirteen Baktun cycle in the Mayan long count, December 21, 2012, the energies of the 4th Dimension have been raised and via the stargates, the energies of the 5th Dimension (and higher) have returned to Earth. Since the Fall of Atlantis, humanity fell out of the 5th Dimension, and the stargates, the web of light around the Earth were closed; extra dimensional energies were shut off, and humanity was left to recover in 3D reality.

The outer planets of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto ceased to transmit their gravitational effects to Earth and the light energies effects were not felt within the individual human. However, when these planets changed signs or nakshatras, some energies were pronounced on a global scale, for galactic energies form part of the whole, the kalapurusha (the body of space and time). In this article we look to the return of the 5th Dimensional light, and the effects of one outer planet, Uranus. Read more

Saturn and Mars opposition


Saturn and Mars aspect one another mutually from 2nd May. Both Saturn and Mars are natural malefic planets and cannot help each other with this 7th opposition aspect. Taurus and Scorpio are both fixed signs – so the results from these signs and aspects are said to be inescapable. We look to the opposition of Saturn and Mars and to what the effect is within the human, and the external effects on our planet.

Note on Summer Solstice

Uluru Solstice

The Summer Solstice is coming on 22 December, and coming at the time when the light coming into the world - the coming of light at Christmas, the coming of light for Deepavali - Diwali, and the celebration of light at Hanukkah. Two years ago, at the time of solstice, the light grids were raised around the Earth and more light energies flowed to Earth from the Central Sun of our Universe. This solstice marks this coming of light and provides further opportunity to integrate the raising of personal and world-wide energies into the 5th Dimension. We begin this note by observing the solstice timing from Uluru, one of the main light centres on this Earth.

Shaneshwara in Vrishikha

Saturn and Moon

As we write, Saturn is approaching transit - peyarchi - to Vrishikha (Scorpio) and is at present sandi, within one degree of the boundary between Libra and Scorpio. Planets in such a position are regarded as depleted of energy, until they reach 1° of the sign entered. Saturn will leave exaltation in Libra to transit Scorpio fo the next two-and-a-half-years. Mundane astrology and predictions left aside, we look to the significance of Shaneshwara in Vrishikha, Lord Saturn in Scorpio. We also look to true humanness and the importance of thoughts creating your reality.

Discussion: Saturn in Scorpio

Saturn in Scorpio

A scenario has been presented describing the effects of Saturn's sojourn in the sign of Scorpio. Mars and Saturn never do well together in any sign, and it is well known that Saturn travels poorly in Scorpio, the natural 8th house which has Mars as sign lord. Many astrologers predict what they will, and some consult astrologers out of fear. Those engaged in the discussion reported below are both devotees of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, who teaches, "Why fear when I am here?". The discussion is frank, full throated and offered for your reflection.

Note on the Full Moon of August 10

Full Moon

This coming Full Moon on 10 August – called a ‘super moon’ on account of perigee (closest to Earth) which will occur on 10 August. As the Hierarchy – in the messages of Cosmic Sai Baba, Jalarm and Alcheringa – recommends meditation on full moon days, we offer a reflection on this coming “super moon” and the astrological significance surrounding this.

Shani Chalisa

Shani Dham Temple is located in the Indian capital of Delhi

Devotion to Gods is often in a form of a narrative of their acts, their deeds, their properties, their strengths and how their devotees are cared for. Many Gods in Hindu devotional material interact with other Gods, animals who can communicate, and humans. The Mahabharatha is the great story of the presence and actions of the Gods among men and women in the history of India which was called - and still is - Bharath. Hence, Mahabharatha, the Great Story of Bharath. Shani Chalisa records the many facets of Shani, planet Saturn in the ancient times, and also recalls the transits of Planet Saturn.

Rahu in Virgo and the Moon: path to Ascension

smoke and moon

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.

Note on Saturn Direct

Saniesharwara

Planet Saturn, retrograde since early March 2014 in Libra, will cease retrograde motion on 20 July, and then go direct. Planets represent concentrations of life force. Their placement in different signs represents the exertions of life-force in those areas which are signified by the planet's occupation. Retrograde means "do-good". Saturn ceases retrograde motion and resumes its slow forward motion. We look to some aspects of this Saturn direct movement as Saturn is seven times more powerful than the Sun.

Note on Change of Rahu – Ketu Axis

Rahu Ketu Axis

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.

Note about Planetary War

planetary war

Mars is currently encountering Rahu, and under the astrological dicta, Sani vat Rahu (Rahu behaves like Saturn), some reckon that a time of tension occurs as these to graha - seizers of energy - approach conjunction and change houses. Both planets will be sandhi, that is, somewhat depleted of energy as they are within one degree of house - sign boundary. This is not graha yuddha, planetary war. This will pass quickly.

However, planetary war will take place when Mars moves out of sandhi into Libra and gets to within 1 degree of Saturn. Some astrologers have told that this will be months of doom and disaster in various places on our planet. Some have said, inter-alia, that the four horsemen of the apocalypse will ride, and the end of an age with all its dreadful appurtenances will occur. We examine this phenomena from a spiritual discipline.
