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.

Mercury in Pisces: 3 Easy Ways to Earn More Money Through Gracious Communication

    Mercury is the planet behind multi-million dollar businesses, eloquent public speaking, profitable trading, and your internet-connected devices. According to Vedic astrology, the predictive system of the ancient seers of India, Mercury is now crossing Pisces until March 26. Pisces is both a constellation ruled by optimistic Jupiter and the sign of debilitation and weakness for Mercury. During this time, you might need to rethink your business strategies and marketing or PR campaigns to ensure good profits and sales. On the one hand, benevolent Jupiter oversees ether, spirituality, ethics, idealism and purity. On the other hand, there’s clever Mercury that wants to gain through variety, fun, caution and practicality. Obviously, these are deep differences and contrasting priorities. So to succeed in your communication and work and put more money in your bank account, here for you—3 easy ways to use impeccable speech, effective writing and plain fun to achieve your business and life goals. Clarity boost Imagine you’re sitting in front of an online spreadsheet, trying to balance figures and totals. Suddenly, the numbers in the cells start expanding and you notice numerical possibilities you’ve never considered before. You then cross your arms, kick the chair away from your desk and begin visualizing a faraway galaxy from where numbers might originate. You see the number 5 dancing in your mind. For the first time, you notice how this digit has had a recurring presence in your life: in your date of birth, the day you got married and—today happens to be the 5th day of the 5th month of the year.

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...

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...

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...
