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...
The Truth Shall Set you Free!

The Truth Shall Set you Free!

The Sun represents our soul and Sunday is the day for our soul to set the trajectory for the coming week!  If we feel overwhelmed and out of control at this time of the year, we must turn inside to connect with the Divine.  As the Sun has entered into Capricorn, it’s going to bring to our attention our true purpose (dharma) in our lives. Try to stay away from the news being broadcast on TV, papers and internet.  This news has been filtered by a certain point of view, and usually it’s not a positive slant! Negativity clouds our perception of our true purpose. Dr. Pillai says that even the gods in the heavens are competing with each other!  As above, so below.  Whatever is going on earth plane is all a play of consciousness. All of us are watching the play from our own ego perspective, so everyone sees things differently! Once we see that we are all one, we may see things clearly from the highest point of view. Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools to be able to advance ourselves on the spiritual path, so we can see through the drama, identify with our Highest Self and attain our highest purpose.  We ask ourselves “what are we doing here?  Are we an experiment in the experience of being human?”  If we can transcend the earthly drama, we will look at the lessons we are learning from a different perspective, from a spiritual perspective and we will see the Truth.  This Truth will set you free! Dr. Pillai is opening a temple for Karuppaswamy today...
Vedic Winter Solstice – Sun Enters Capricorn

Vedic Winter Solstice – Sun Enters Capricorn

Today is a power day for Vishnu called Vaikunta Ekadasi, where he opens the doors to heaven and can give wealth and enlightenment blessings. Om Namo Narayanaya! Currently Sun is still transiting the most idealistic sign, Sagittarius. This Friday January 13th at 9:05 p.m. EST Sun will move into Capricorn. This is called the Vedic Winter Solstice, and it initiates the six months of the year when the Sun is moving northward through the zodiac. North being the direction of Kubera, the banker in heaven, means that this is a favorable time to start new ventures, and it supports financial growth. The Sun is bringing in new life force, consciousness, and purpose into the world. Henceforth more light will be coming in. This is a perfect time to throw out the old and welcome in the new. Especially in this week leading up to the Vedic Winter Solstice, clean out the clutter in your closets, office, house. Donate or throw away old items from your past that don’t fit with the new life you are in the process of creating. This can include old clothing that you don’t wear, items you aren’t using, and broken and unusable things. Revisit your goal list and reassess what you are doing. Make changes where needed. The energy will support letting go of bad habits and old ways of being. Empower your goals by writing them and/or creating a vision board. It is a great time to focus on your career and life purpose because Capricorn is the natural 10th house of profession. The Sun symbolizes our soul, activity, royalty, and the father....
Live Your Ideal 2017: 3 Easy Steps to (Actually) Manifesting Your New Year’s Resolutions

Live Your Ideal 2017: 3 Easy Steps to (Actually) Manifesting Your New Year’s Resolutions

    Have you ever sworn by your New Year’s resolutions and yet failed? Do you remember all the hopes and expectations you poured into your plans, only to find yourself back where you started at year end? If yes, you’re not alone. In fact, according to a Statistic Brain Research Institute survey, only 41 percent of US citizens make New Year’s resolutions—9 percent of whom actually experience the self-improvement, weight loss, and better finances they set out to get. Apparently, working on the self to become a better, smarter person, acquiring a slimmer body, and making better financial decisions were the top three most frequently made resolutions in the USA in 2016. So while you’re meditating on the reasons for your own missed 2016 goals, you’re perhaps realizing that you could have used more support and help than you thought. And that’s why better eating habits, a consistent workout routine, regular meditation, and a higher income have remained remote. There’s no need to feel guilty, though—because as both modern psychologists and spiritual masters will tell you, guilt is a waste of time. Understanding what went wrong, asking for help and renewing your resolve are much better solutions. So will you take this opportunity for a totally clean slate to find your true passions, ban your fears and live a much more joyful life in 2017? If these are your resolutions, you might finally get all the support and knowledge you need through some spiritual solutions. For over three decades, Dr. Pillai has been blending his traditional meditation teachings with new discoveries in neuroscience. Some of his new revelations...

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...
