Saturn Changes Course: 3 Sure Ways to Stay Sane and Profit During This Time

    Are you a glass-half-full kind of person? If so, the upcoming Saturn retrograde period between April 6 and August 24 will find you prepared. According to Vedic astrology, however, many will be nursing a sinking feeling during Saturn’s backward motion, because his retrogrades often bring some tense moments. This is due to Saturn’s general inclination to deliver important yet unpleasant lessons, acting more erratically in retrograde. But Saturn also brings us amazing opportunities for spiritual growth and long-term benefits. It’s generally accepted that Saturn’s return to Scorpio isn’t the greatest news for most.

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

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.

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...
