Saturn in Sagittarius Turns Benevolent: 3 Reasons You’ll Be Happier and More Successful

    Saturn’s move to Sagittarius on January 26, 2017 is really good news. Of course, a complete description of Saturn changing areas of the sky can fill up a book, as this massive celestial body can turn your life around or upside down—sometimes with nothing in between. So for reasons of brevity, here for you the three main reasons you’re about to get a lot happier—no matter what Saturn rules in your life and what projects and dreams you hold dear. You’ll definitely like these changes and it’s about time. A much better attitude I don’t need to tell you that you’ve seen a few intense moments during Saturn’s passage through the emotional and secretive constellation of Scorpio for the last two and half years. You’ve probably felt some tension on a personal level and gained insights, probably the hard way, of your deepest fears and true needs. Those you’ve been keeping to yourself for a long time. Saturn in fact displayed his might to bust open our consciousness and shake us up to the point that we feel new in inexplicable ways. So now that we have a clean slate, new tastes and hopes, our outlook will be a lot more optimistic, idealistic and even spiritual. Of course, all the planets and stars are spiritual, their noble goal being to awaken us, heighten our awareness and reveal our karmic imprints, mindsets and behaviors. Sagittarius is ruled by benevolent Jupiter—the most intelligent and wisest planet, according to the Tamil Siddhas, Dr. Pillai’s yogic lineage from South India, and the Vedas. On the one hand, Jupiter is both the...
Sun in Capricorn: Awaken Your Soul’s Wealth in 3 Quick Ways

Sun in Capricorn: Awaken Your Soul’s Wealth in 3 Quick Ways

    Do you suffer from the winter blues? Apparently many are affected by diminished light, and experience subdued moods or depression during the winter season. While one 2016 study on SAD (or Seasonal Affective Disorder) has been paraded to disprove the existence of this winter syndrome, we find countless studies and common-sense evidence showing that many people become lethargic, feel unenthusiastic and long for brighter light in the midst of winter. So you may be happy to learn that the Sun, the first of the nine Vedic planets, is now in Capricorn (Jan. 13 – Feb. 12, 2017). And here this luminary begins its northward journey. While this movement actually starts in Sagittarius soon after the winter solstice, according to Vedic tradition the official northward movement of the Sun begins in Capricorn, an event called Makar Sankranti. This passage brings increasingly more light to those in the Northern Hemisphere who’ll enjoy later sunsets, earlier sunrises and better moods. But regardless of where you’re located on earth, this transit marks the awakening of the Vedic Gods. In fact, these celestial beings are said to experience time at a much faster pace. In the Vedic tradition, one Earth year corresponds to a 24-hour cycle for celestial beings living in more evolved galaxies and higher-vibrational space. After sleeping for six months or during their nighttime, the Gods now wake up to a pleasantly pink dawn leading to daytime. So to increase your success, personal power, intelligence of the soul, and vitality (the Sun’s domains) and live in a more awakened state, here for you—three easy ways to celebrate and connect with...
Vedic Venus in Aquarius: Your Love, Beauty and Art Go High-Tech and Hi-Definition

Vedic Venus in Aquarius: Your Love, Beauty and Art Go High-Tech and Hi-Definition

    According to the Vedic and sidereal calendar based on the fixed stars, the planet of love Venus has just landed in eccentric Aquarius. Here Venus will join the invisible yet powerful south lunar node, Ketu, and an extremely energetic celestial body, Mars. Can you imagine Venus as a damsel in love donning pastel colored garments in a community meeting with a bored priest, Ketu, and a passionate warrior, Mars? If this sounds like an odd trio, you’re right. So to say hello to your jolly New Year and enjoy happy developments in your creativity and relationship alike, here for you three easy-easy ways to make the most of Venus in Aquarius. You may not be able to guess what’s in store given the unconventional and unorthodox nature of this sign—so a little guidance will go a long way. 1. Innovative wave Aquarius is the point in the sky that gives visiting planets a penchant for technological progress and social change. This astrological sign is ruled by both Saturn, the planet of longevity, and Rahu, the unconventional and a bit obsessive north lunar node. Rahu loves all things new. So as Venus leaves behind the solid and work-oriented sign of Capricorn, it will bring you interests in research, astronomy, astrology, innovation and cutting-edge technology. Yet traditional Saturn can bestow a touch of history and working-class awareness. So don’t leave your day job just yet. If you’re an artist, plan to wow the crowds with your unusual style, designs and techniques. Multi-media installations and performances will suddenly seem irresistible. If you love music, you’ll leave home, your office or...
