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...

Happy Birthday Ganesha!

How do we know what it is we are supposed to be doing in order to be happy and fulfilled?  The soul knows, so we must learn to listen. We learn to listen through meditation.  We contact the archetypes (Divine Beings) in our meditations.  Today is Ganesha’s Birthday and he is the remover of all obstacles, seen and unseen.  We contact Ganesha through the Muladara, or the root chakra at the base of the spine and also in the thalamic area in the middle of the brain by imagining a reddish-orangey light in those places.  He is readily available for us, right now!  When we just put our attention on him in any way, he is there. Here are some important upcoming dates/events: Sunday, Sept. 4 – Monday, Sept. 5: Ganesha’s Birthday (Ganesha Chaturthi) Dr. Pillai announced Ganesha’s full descent into the Earth, and declared 2016 the “Year of Ganesha.” At home, it will be very auspicious to offer Ganesha Ganesha Grass (Bermuda Grass), break a coconut for him and chant “Om Gum Ganapataye Namaha”. Enjoy Dr. Pillai’s FREE Ganesha Birthday Video on Pillai Center’s Facebook Page. Astroved will be performing twelve Grand Homas in twelve homa pits to the twelve forms of Ganesha at Dr. Pillai’s Ganesha vortex will empower these forms of Ganesha to come alive on that day. You can be part of this historic event to manifest heaven on Earth. Read more here. Enjoy Astroved’s LIVE 12 Ganesha Grand Homa Webcast on Sunday, September 4, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. EDT (New York Time).

Jupiter’s Big Move

This Thursday, August 11, Jupiter will make his big move into Virgo, where he will be for the next year (learn more here). Saturn has been retrograde for a few months and will be going direct on August 13th. Knowing what energies are coming will help us understand what is happening to us and what we can do to avoid pitfalls as well as use the beneficial energies.  Sucharita mentioned that Dr. Pillai has been talking about his new year-long program coming up called “THE MYSTERY SCHOOL”. Sucharita explains that when we put ourselves into a longer program like this Mystery School, or the others offered from Dr. Pillai, and when we make the commitment to do the practices, we will see ourselves evolving spiritually.  Sucharita invites us to start calling on Ganesha before we even get out of the bed! Use any of the techniques that you know to propitiate Ganesha, even if it’s just saying “Gum Gum Gum”.  He will show you a sign or indicator of what your next step should be. Ganesha’s Birthday (Ganesha Chaturthi) is coming up in September 4th. Pay attention to the signs you are getting all the time from Ganesha and other archetypes and Divine Beings that reside within us.  When we take one step toward the Divine, the Divine takes a thousand towards us!  If fear or negativity comes up, you know that you must “bust some karma” by rolling limes or breaking coconuts. Here’s how. Watch Dr. Pillai explains more about how Karma Busting works. Here are some important upcoming dates/events: Monday Aug 8 The Sixth Waxing Moon is...

Ready to Timeline Jump?

  Today we enjoyed a powerful meditation and group discussion on Dr. Pillai’s birthstar day. Dr. Pillai’s birthstar, or nakshatra, is Purva Bhadrapada, a star that can give the fire to lift you up to a higher evolutionary level. It can give blessings of enlightenment, charity, and can help you connect to Dr. Pillai. Today Mercury enters his own sign, Gemini, and becomes incredibly strong. Sucharita reminded us that Sun has also been transiting Gemini for the past 2 weeks and will continue until July 16th. Have you been taking calculated risks? Have you been multitasking, getting a variety of things done, and putting yourself out there? This can be a good time to focus on your business, communication, networking, your hobbies and interests. Remember to write down/draw/create a vision board or otherwise work with your manifestations. Monday, June 27th will be Kala Bhairava’s 8th Waning Moon. Kala Bhairava can help you to timeline jump into a more rewarding reality. Learn more on Astroved. Friday, July 1st at 14:53 through Saturday, July 2nd at 12:04 p.m. at 12:04 p.m. EDT will be Pradosham. This is the best time to dissolve old karmas. Any pradosham that falls on a Saturday is incredibly more powerful. Pour milk/juice/water over a siva linga within 1 1/2 hour of sunset as you chant Thiru Neela Kantam Makaral Shivayanama and visualize blue light in your throat. Pray to Lord Siva to remove your karma. Roll and cut a lime(s) or roll and cut a coconut as you do the same. Learn more on Astroved.

Sun enters Gemini

The Sun enters Gemini on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, and will continue there through July 16th, the Vedic Summer Solstice.   Gemini is a sign ruled by Mercury, and it is called Mithuna in Sanskrit. It is a sign that encompasses a great range of energies. It is symbolized either by twins or by an embracing couple. Gemini is the natural 3rd house of the zodiac, which is about courage and risk-taking, your siblings and peers, short journeys and errands. It shows your capacity to get along with others and physical strength. You may want to look at how you deal with risk. Are you bold or timid? Do you take measured risks or do you risk too much without a safety net or back-up plan? Dr. Pillai talks about this in his book, Life Changing Sounds: Tools from the Other Side. He said that overspending to buy a luxury car when you can’t really afford the payments is not a good risk.  However, “A good risk is a ‘calculated risk’ which optimizes the opportunity for success”. As mentioned before, Gemini is ruled by Mercury, who is a planet of communication, information technology, intellect, business, and money. Mercury is no longer retrograde; he is moving forward in Taurus now, so there should be fewer interruptions to communications and technology. Mercury will enter Gemini on June 26th, transiting here through July 11th. He will be very strong in his own sign, so this will be a good chance to develop your mercurial skills.
