Can Meditation and Contemplation Give You Success and Money? 3 Easy Tips for Power and Wealth

Can Meditation and Contemplation Give You Success and Money? 3 Easy Tips for Power and Wealth

    In Vedic astrology, the Sun is a must-watch planet for its profound connection to career success, good finances and abundant vitality. The Sun is now crossing Pisces—the constellation owned by Jupiter, a planet of positive expansion that is friendly to the Sun. So far, so good. There are just a few chinks in the Sun’s trajectory in Pisces—the place in the zodiac that favors solitude, meditation, gentle contemplation, and the kind of inner and outer silence you can only find in a spiritual retreat. While this is obviously good news for yogis and spiritual folks, it also gives the Sun—the traditional planet of leadership and authority—uncharacteristic tendencies like holding back, a need for protecting the environment and a marked reluctance to leadership. While the Sun in Pisces brings generosity, selfless service, compassion, and an evolved approach to life, it also diminishes your motivation to succeed and gets in the way of your earnings. So to shine in your profession, boost your self-confidence and grow your income during this transit between now and April 12, here for you—three easy and time-tested Vedic techniques to get a promotion and succeed in all your enterprises.     Power meditation They might not advertise it, but most successful people, CEOs of corporate giants (Apple, Google, Cisco, to mention just a few), Hollywood stars, politicians and other leaders have taken up yoga and meditation by storm. This helps them reduce stress, maximize their well-being and performance and keep their intellectual capacities in top shape. Even a daily 10-minute meditation can change your day from frantic activity to seamless time management and goal...
Mars in Pisces: Three Easy Steps to Wealth and Victory Over Negativity

Mars in Pisces: Three Easy Steps to Wealth and Victory Over Negativity

      As seen in Vedic calendars and astrology manuals, Mars has been plundered by harsh forces for many months. Except for some short intervals, in fact, Mars was forced to abide by Saturn’s slower timetable or deal with the lunar nodes’ confusion in Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Aquarius. When action was taken, a sense of oppression followed—because Saturn can put tabs on just about any celestial body. And Mars is no exception. According to Vedic astrology, now in Pisces Mars acquires both strength and dignity or intelligence, becoming free from the malefic vibes of Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. Hallelujah. So to create a strong plan of action and a small shift to get positivity, wealth and inspiration—here for you, three easy steps that can pay you in assets, dividends, and wisdom. Wealth and Jupiter’s support Mars regains freedom and energy in the constellation owned by Jupiter, one of his best friends, and a universally benevolent planet. As an additional bonus, Jupiter in Virgo is protecting its own house of Pisces with a magnanimous gaze. So well-placed Mars is receiving support from his ruling planet along with an expansively positive vibration. Being a warrior in the natural house of meditation, Mars acquires courage and reduces its aggressiveness. This planet can then enhance your positive actions through higher beliefs, fine arts, charity, and self-betterment. By going inward, Mars will use its laser-like strength to control base instincts—such as aggression, overeating or distractions. This is good news for you if, like many, you’ve been feeling stuck in financial or spiritual matters. Now from watery, imaginative and gentle Pisces, Mars’ steam...

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...
