A rare phenomena will occur from 8 January to 7 February when all the planets will take up direct motion, when viewed from the Earth. This event will make the Earth seem like the Sun, where planets are never retrograde (seemingly going backwards). A world meditation for peace, harmony and positivity will be undertaken during this period, for it is a period without major obstructions and blemishes. Any worldwide synchronised meditation on peace and harmony will benefit both all on Earth and those who contribute to the meditation.

Looking to the trio of eclipses during August-September of 2016, we note several important issues having some impact during this period. Saturn will station and turn direct on the day of the August eclipse. The Sun will also change signs and move into Leo on the day before the August eclipse and will be at strength. Jupiter has moved into Virgo and Mercury gets ready to change signs. The stage is set for the “non-visible” eclipse of August 18.

In a previous article we looked at Spirituality and Intelligence. While intelligence is said to reside in the 5th House, this overlooks the antarkaranas, the inner instruments of action, which comprise the intellect, the buddhi. The heart is a key; turn it toward the world, it will be bound by the world. Turn the key of the heart towards the divine, and it shall unlock the presence of the divine within. In this post, we look to the astrological significators of the presence of the divine within.

Hence the iceberg: the subtle energies of the planets touch us on levels we do not ordinarily perceive.

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.

This is the 9th day of the Navaratri celebrations – and the final day of celebration: the day is called Vijaya Dasami, the Day of Victory; it celebrates the victory of Mother Durga against the force of evil. Sai Baba has told that the nine nights of Navaratri refer to the nine planets – so in this festival the forces of the planets are invoked to remind mankind that they should cultivate noble qualities by engaging themselves in activities beneficial to one’s own self and society.
Sai Baba of Puttaparthi went on to say that each planet has its own significance. However, these planets are not outside, they are within. This refers to the cosmic energies of the planets within, which are like our solar system, forces circumambulating the Sol (outer sun) – and within, these same forces are circumambulating the Soul (inner sun). The colour for the 9th and victorious day of Navaratri is PEACOCK GREEN so we scribe in Peacock Green for this 9th day of Navaratri.
