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

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...
The Truth Shall Set you Free!

The Truth Shall Set you Free!

The Sun represents our soul and Sunday is the day for our soul to set the trajectory for the coming week!  If we feel overwhelmed and out of control at this time of the year, we must turn inside to connect with the Divine.  As the Sun has entered into Capricorn, it’s going to bring to our attention our true purpose (dharma) in our lives. Try to stay away from the news being broadcast on TV, papers and internet.  This news has been filtered by a certain point of view, and usually it’s not a positive slant! Negativity clouds our perception of our true purpose. Dr. Pillai says that even the gods in the heavens are competing with each other!  As above, so below.  Whatever is going on earth plane is all a play of consciousness. All of us are watching the play from our own ego perspective, so everyone sees things differently! Once we see that we are all one, we may see things clearly from the highest point of view. Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools to be able to advance ourselves on the spiritual path, so we can see through the drama, identify with our Highest Self and attain our highest purpose.  We ask ourselves “what are we doing here?  Are we an experiment in the experience of being human?”  If we can transcend the earthly drama, we will look at the lessons we are learning from a different perspective, from a spiritual perspective and we will see the Truth.  This Truth will set you free! Dr. Pillai is opening a temple for Karuppaswamy today...
Vedic Winter Solstice – Sun Enters Capricorn

Vedic Winter Solstice – Sun Enters Capricorn

Today is a power day for Vishnu called Vaikunta Ekadasi, where he opens the doors to heaven and can give wealth and enlightenment blessings. Om Namo Narayanaya! Currently Sun is still transiting the most idealistic sign, Sagittarius. This Friday January 13th at 9:05 p.m. EST Sun will move into Capricorn. This is called the Vedic Winter Solstice, and it initiates the six months of the year when the Sun is moving northward through the zodiac. North being the direction of Kubera, the banker in heaven, means that this is a favorable time to start new ventures, and it supports financial growth. The Sun is bringing in new life force, consciousness, and purpose into the world. Henceforth more light will be coming in. This is a perfect time to throw out the old and welcome in the new. Especially in this week leading up to the Vedic Winter Solstice, clean out the clutter in your closets, office, house. Donate or throw away old items from your past that don’t fit with the new life you are in the process of creating. This can include old clothing that you don’t wear, items you aren’t using, and broken and unusable things. Revisit your goal list and reassess what you are doing. Make changes where needed. The energy will support letting go of bad habits and old ways of being. Empower your goals by writing them and/or creating a vision board. It is a great time to focus on your career and life purpose because Capricorn is the natural 10th house of profession. The Sun symbolizes our soul, activity, royalty, and the father....

Shaking Up the Snow Globe

Christmas and the New Year are fast approaching and Sucharita invites us to reflect on our lives up to now and ask “How have we evolved ourselves?”  Each Sunday we should ask ourselves “Who am I and where am I going?”  We should check the Time Shaktis and then dive deep down inside to access the energies available.  This is the way we can take control of our lives and stop this never-ending cycle of action and reaction (karma).  Dr. Pillai often says that the best way to evolve spiritually is to feed a hungry person.  We can easily take care of this by participating in Tripura Foundation donation gift cards.  There are gift cards available that will help us in three ways: 1.) The needy get food, shelter and educations, 2.) the recipient of the gift card gets the karmic benefit of donating to the needy, 3.) You get the double benefit of donating to the needy and introducing your gift card recipient to Tripura Foundation (or any charity you may choose!) Learn more here. Sucharita mentioned that there will be a special homa offered at AstroVed.com on New Years Eve.  AstroVed has created an exclusive 2-Day Grand Ceremony called “START ANEW FOR 2017” to cleanse your karmic debts, which are the root cause for your problems, and invite wealth and health for the New Year. On December 31st, they are featuring the ancient karma-removing Kushmanda homa prescribed in the second oldest Veda, Yajur Veda. On January 1st, the grand finale is a wish-fulfilling wealth homa that invokes Archetype Kamadhenu, the divine feminine holy cow that Dr. Pillai...

Sagittarius Preview

Sun is currently in Scorpio and he will enter Sagittarius on Thursday, December 15th at 10:20 a.m. EST. He will transit through Sagittarius until January 13, 2016. A couple weeks after that, Saturn is also going to move out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. The Sun is going to give us a preview of Saturn’s big upcoming transit. The Sun symbolizes your soul, father, activity and vitality. Sun always spends 1 month in each sign and never goes retrograde. On the other hand, Saturn moves through a zodiac very slowly, taking about 2 ½ years per sign. If you look at the zodiac Saturn is transiting at any given time, it will be one of your 12 houses in your personal chart. It may be the 2nd house of finances and speech, the 10th house of profession, or etc. Whichever house it is for you, Saturn will bring up lessons and learning experiences in that area of life. This is why we pay a lot of attention to Saturn’s transits. Saturn is a planet of limitations, tough karmas, discipline, and compassion. Sometimes he puts us through difficulties in order to make us more compassionate and humble. He is like a tough drill sergeant that you hate while you are in boot camp, but once you graduate you are immensely grateful for how he led you to grow and change. From Scorpio… For the past month Sun has been lighting up Scorpio. Scorpio is the most occult of the signs, representing the hidden side of life and occult powers. It is a house of transformation, change, obstacles, and mysteries. It...
