Looking at Climate Change – 5th House

The Fifth house is readily known as the house of Love and creativity; it is frequently known as the menage of children, pleasures, speculation, games and gambling. This is the house that rules intellectuals, emotional stability, communal harmony, speculative nature of the masses, investments, stock exchanges, universities along with morals and values of the people. When we consider the environs of climate change, we dig a little deeper than “children, pleasures, speculation”, all the normal activities of the 5th house. We take a Leo lagna and look to Sagittarius as 5th House and ask ourselves, What are the important matters for 5th house and climate change?

Rahu and the Mind

mindscapeRahu 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?" Read more

January 2016, Jupiter and Rahu

January is really an awkward time to welcome a new year; the Hindu panchangam has us beginning a new year (samvatsara) at various markings of the Sun entering Aries. Nonetheless, we begin a new month and there are matters we should be taking notice of, particularly some important transits which only occur every 18 months. At this time, Jupiter stations and then turns retrograde. There may be issues arising for one and all. Read more

Navaratri – Jupiter


This is the 5th day of the Navaratri celebrations (which are held for nine nights). All festivals are meant to remind mankind that they should cultivate noble qualities by engaging themselves in activities beneficial to one’s own self and society. Sai Baba has told that Navaratri, the nine nights, represents the Nine Planets.

During Navaratri, we invoke the energy aspect of God in the form of the universal mother, often referred to as “Durga,” which literally means the remover of miseries of life. She is also referred to as “Devi” (goddess) or “Shakti” (energy or power). It is this energy, which is embedded in the work of creation, preservation and destruction. In other words, you can say that God-Brahman is motionless, absolutely changeless, and the Divine Mother Durga, does everything; worship of Shakti confirms the scientific theory that energy is imperishable. It cannot be created or destroyed.

Sai Baba went on to say that each planet has its own significance. However, these planets are not outside, they are within. So we take the opportunity to examine the energies of the planets within, and examine how the Divine Mother is related to these energies. On this 5th day of Navaratri we will look to the planet Jupiter, and examine Saraswati’s role in higher education and learning. The colour for the 5th day of Navaratri is YELLOW, so we scribe in YELLOW for this 5th day and modify the background so that the text may be read on this site.
