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.
The great palaeontologist Teilhard de Chardin commenced his Mass on the World with "Since once again, Lord—though this time not in the forests of the Aisne". So once again, it behooves jyothishas' to pay some attention to the Cousins – those who practice and follow western (tropical) astrology. Some western astrological websites are expecting major world events with the Cardinal Grand Cross occurring April 20-24th with Mars squaring Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter and then the oppositions between Jupiter and Pluto and Mars and Uranus. With respect to our astrological cousins, we look to this matter as it is a period straddled by two eclipses: the lunar eclipse of 14 April and the solar eclipse of April 29.
Many years ago, perhaps in the early days of awakening in the New Age movement, the times of the 11-11 portal openings, many seers and visionaries were reporting that a time of three days of darkness was to come; there would be no light, no electricity, and humanity would be living in darkness. As most of humanity would be in ignorance of this, this was expected to be a time of terror and extreme reactions by persons unable to cope with such a catastrophe, as some would call this. It is now understood that in the last three months, this "wall of darkness" has occluded the light, and darkened the inner light to some extent in the social, intellectual, physical and spiritual domains of the person.
Planet Saturn is sometimes known as Kala Raja, for he rules the passing of time and how we fill time. Time passing slowly, duroshya, is one of Saturn’s principal duties, for how we fill time is critical. Do we repeat karmic patterns, do we endlessly go around in circles doing the same thing again and again, or do we yoke ourselves to what Saturn offers and learn the lessons, love ourselves and build a sustainable life-long discipline? Here, we look to the role of Saturn as duroshya-karaka (giver of slowness), and examine how human values might be yoked to the discipline Saturn enjoins.
The Grand Sextile is an event wherein the consciousness of all life-forms on our planet will be raised further into the fourth dimension. There will be grounding of the 4th dimension energy into the depths of the Earth, an “earthing“, one might say. This grounding of the 4th dimensional energies — the grand sextile — bringing the planets into the form of the Star of David — signifies the raising of vibrations and rise of consciousness in the hue-man, the one who is filled with different hues of light. What is consciousness and how does it rise?
Vata, Vata, Vata
Vata is one of the three doshas, or constitutions of Ayurveda. Vata means airy or wind, and this applies to to planets. The Vata planets are Sun, Mercury, Rahu, the Air signs are Mithuna (Gemini) Tula (Libra) and Kumbh (Aquarius). Right now, we have a situation where an air sign is full of planets and is being aspected by Vata planets.
Uluru and the Autumn Equinox
In our article Understanding the Fourth Dimension, we mentioned the energies flowing in from the Core of Suns, the Source of All.
The new energy has been coming in for quite some time. It reached the turning point with the alignment of the Sun with the core of suns, then it reached back to the creation of all. This opened up many opportunities for all aspects of creation, and all forms of life in all the kingdoms, mineral, plant, animal and human.
This energy has first come to various grids in our atmosphere, and then descended to stargates on the Earth where the energy is distributed in a balanced degree and quantity to places all over the Earth.
The new energies are distributed through stargates like Uluru
Very shortly after the opening of the 4th Dimension and the return of the Earth to this — and higher dimensions in our solar system — a small, invisible, transition among the shadowy planets will take place. Shadowy planets — called chaaya grahas — are not seen. They are points of magnetic force which have impact in our solar system and on our Earth. Our bodies are woven from light itself, from the very source of light (called Paramjyothi in Vedic literature). We are in fact the light of the Source and the mask of illusion, called Maya, causes us to see this world as real. In fact everything that happens in this world and in our lives on Earth are taking place in light. So we look to the light and its role in our lives.
Understanding the Fourth Dimension
The 3rd Dimension will mesh with the 4th Dimension.
The Earth, the planets in our solar system along with our own Sun—along with our entire galaxy—are all experiencing a transition to the Fourth Dimension. A sun in a solar system is the centre-point around which all other bodies rotate; our own solar system rotates around a central sun of this galaxy (known as Sagittarius A – possibly a dark star) which in turn is rotating around the central sun of all galaxies and universes – this Central Sun is larger than our own solar system. It is from THIS central sun that light is streaming forth – and a higher frequency is being passed to all galaxies and solar systems. Many worlds are partaking in this transition to a higher frequency.

Taking place, now, is an alignment of the sun, our solar sun with the central sun of the galaxy, and that with the core of suns’ also, to the core of the Creation of All (this is in the subtle universe). This is happening now.
