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...
How Pillai Center Changed My Life and Perspective

How Pillai Center Changed My Life and Perspective

“Pillai Center gave me a rare and unique opportunity, the ability to feel peace and obtain faith during a tumultuous time in my life. I had been extremely ill for a month and was unable to function which had lead to increased anxiety and depression. I slowly started getting better and began to reinsert myself into daily life. Then I got the worst news, my mother had passed away suddenly from a drug overdose. My mother and I were very close and the shock of losing her when all signs had pointed that she was getting better had paralyzed me. I had started spiraling with the emotions of grief that took over my life. I immediately reverted back to being full of anxiety and depression and felt as though I had wanted to give up on life. It is not an easy hole to climb out of when you are so far into it. The Pillai Center team and teachings had helped me to see that I have a purpose and am not done with this life. I had been studying on and off with Dr. Pillai and his teachers for over a year, but because I was not dedicated, I had not built a solid foundation to handle these types of situations. The opportunity arose for me to have a Maha Tarpanam performed for my mother to help her soul reach the highest realms. I was skeptical at first, however, I took the advice of a Pillai Center Teacher and the team who helped me and purchased the Maha Tarpanam. The ritual needs to be performed at a...

Sun Enters Libra

Sun transits into Libra on Sunday, October 16th and will continue there until November 15, 2016. The Sun signifies your physical health, vitality, self-esteem, father, and even your soul. Sun doesn’t feel comfortable in Libra. It is his debilitation or lowest power position. It’s like he falls down to earth during this month. The good thing is that this is an opportunity to get to know Sun more and build a better relationship with him. Libra is an air sign ruled by Venus. Venus is a luxury-loving planet of love, beauty, the Goddess, and the arts. And wealth. Libra can bring blessings of being popular, peace-loving, and having harmonious relationships with others. Libra is called Tula in Sanskrit. Libra is a sign of harmony and balance. Libra’s symbol is a man in a bazaar, or open-air market, with a scale in his hand. The symbol shows how Libra energies support business, negotiation, and finding balance. This can mean finding win-win solutions that benefit everyone, being successful in business – putting together a good deal, and being diplomatic. As the natural 7th house of the zodiac, Libra is all about creating and maintaining relationships. This involves compromise and balancing the needs of each person involved. Learning to stay balanced is a big theme. Libra is the halfway point through the zodiac. Libra can also lead you to develop a strong relationship with the Divine through love and devotion. But don’t try to please everyone, or compromise your core values too much. In negotiation, you have to know what the minimum deal that would be workable for you and be able...
