Mars in Aries: 3 Ways to Empower Yourself and Turn Your Dreams Into Reality

Mars in Aries: 3 Ways to Empower Yourself and Turn Your Dreams Into Reality

      In sidereal Pisces, Mars, the planet of courage and energy seemed gentler, more devotional, inwardly focused and kind of reserved. All the above qualities are now out of sight, as the transit of the Red Planet in the first constellation of the zodiac is a real game changer. Now Mars will move through sidereal Aries between March 1 and April 12, and will acquire both powerhouse status and missile-like energy.

So, never mind the past! Here for you—three easy steps and a small shift in consciousness to leave hesitation behind and move assertively forward. And if you’ve been eagerly waiting for your dreams to come true, this isn’t a moment too soon. Power of myth In Vedic astrology, Mars is synonymous with youthful energy, warrior-like instinct and muscular prowess. Stemming from the ancient Vedic texts of India, Vedic astrology is arguably the most ancient and accurate predictive system in the world. In fact, long before the Babylonian and Greek systems appeared—the Rig Veda (the oldest of the Vedas) and the hymns of Dirghatamas (a great Vedic Rishi and intuitive seer) referred to a 360-degree zodiac and the 12 signs, displaying very advanced mathematical calculations. Can you imagine counting trillions and calculating numbers followed by 12 zeros without the help of a computer? In Indian mythology, Mangala or Mars is considered a son of Bhumi or Earth and Vishnu, the celestial being who preserves the universe. Another myth says that...
Mercury in Aquarius: 3 Ways to Succeed with the Millionaire’s Planet

Mercury in Aquarius: 3 Ways to Succeed with the Millionaire’s Planet

    Vedic astrology calendars based on the fixed stars are showing that until March 10 Mercury will be in Aquarius—the area of the sky associated with innovation. Moreover, Aquarius is an astrological sign ruled by both slow Saturn and the unconventional north lunar node Rahu—hence Mercury placed here can bring you a desire to use research and technology to change the status quo. Being the most socially conscious sign, Aquarius wants to make a difference. It could be depicted as an eccentric and farsighted crowd thinking about legacy and how we collectively affect our planet to grow (or deplete) our resources. How does this impact your business and communication? Big time. In fact, according to the intuitive Rishis of India and Vedic astrology, Mercury is an electromagnetic force that gets a hold of your brain and stimulates with quick bursts your speech, business goals and writing. This planet also rules numbers, math, science, publishing and to-the-point public speaking. Do you know a person who speaks fast and often shares funny jokes to lighten up a meeting or social gathering? These qualities are usually caused by Mercury. Of course, each of us is “grabbed” by the planets in different ways. But for some, Mercury is the fabulous planet that makes one a millionaire. Pros The visionary bent of Mercury occupying Aquarius can give you seemingly out-there ideas to stand out as a leader (and profiteer) in a futuristic market. Profits from robotics or other high technology are now more likely. Entertainment will include the use of digital media. Cons Mercury is now under the influence of Saturn—a notoriously stern...
