Sun Enters Scorpio

We are currently in Skanda Shasti, the 6 days when Muruga comes to the earth plane to kill off negativity and bring in more light and higher consciousness. The Sun and Mercury are going to transit into Scorpio tomorrow on Monday, November 16th. The Sun transits at 1:30 pm EST and Mercury transits at 9 pm. As Scorpio is known as a fixed sign, the Sun entering Scorpio initiates a 9-hour Vishnupati period where the energy of Vishnu is abundantly available. Vishnu can bless you with wealth, healing, transformation, and spiritual bliss. Make sure to pray to Vishnu during this time. You can honor Vishnu with his mantra, Om Namo Narayanaya. Astroved invites you to watch a grand fire ritual for Muruga on the last night of Skanda Shasti. It will be held at 5:00 p.m. PST / 8:00 p.m. EST on Monday, November 16th. That is 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, November 17th IST. It is offered FREE for everyone, or you may make a donation of your choice, or you may sign up to participate in the ritual by proxy. Participate here. Sun is going to be in Scorpio from November 16 – December 16th. Scorpio is the most occult of the signs. Ruled by the action-oriented planet Mars, Scorpio is the natural 8th house of the zodiac. Known as Vrischika in Sanskrit, its symbol is the scorpion. Scorpions can sting and sometimes are poisonous. On the other hand, a small amount of poison can actually be made into a medicine that heals people. Vaccines and homeopathic remedies are examples. Scorpio represents the hidden side of life and...

Attitude of Gratitude

As Mahalaya concludes and the 9 Nights of the Goddess (Navaratri) commence on October 13th, the keywords for this week are thanksgiving and attitude of gratitude.

Your Ancestors and You

We are in the middle of Mahalaya, the 2-week period when all of your ancestors come to the earth plane to be with you and seek spiritual evolution. How is that going for you? Sundays with Sucharita members have reported a variety of experiences including spiritual insights, receiving ancestor blessings, tiredness, illness, strange encounters with relatives, and the like. On this week’s call, we enjoyed a meditation and then listened to members’ sharing about their experiences during this very intense past week. You are highly encouraged to offer tarpanam to your ancestors daily, or as many times a day as you like, in order to help your ancestors evolve and receive their blessings for a beautiful life. As you do the simple tarpanam offering, you help your ancestors cross into the light where they can bless you and your family. Learn how here. Here are some of the many boons you are eligible to receive from your ancestors for the remainder of Mahalaya: 8th Moon Increases Intelligence. 9th Moon Increases Support of women in life. 10th Moon Brings Success in profession. 11th Moon Brings Blessings for prosperity of children and growth of their intelligence. 12th Moon Brings Blessings for continuity of lineage and success from education. 13th Moon and 14th Moon Moon Brings possession of vehicles and a life of peace and longevity. Mahalaya Amavasya – New Moon Helps in receiving divine light because their grace is equivalent to God’s grace. On this day, ritual is done specially for those ancestors who passed away due to weapons or accidents. Learn more about Mahalaya rituals on Astroved.   Click Here...

Your Ancestors are Coming to Visit

For two weeks, all of your ancestors come to the earth plane to hang out with you. Imagine if every deceased ancestor that you know plus thousands that you have never heard of came to stay with you for two weeks. Consider that many of us have ancestors who suffered in the same way we do – with health problems, relationship problems, financial problems. Soul Genetics means that our ancestors passed down these thoughts and experiences to us just as they gave us our eye color and physical appearance. Mahalaya is your big opportunity to offer tarpanam to your ancestors and help them cross over into the light. When this happens, your ancestors will send you blessings instead of problems. How will you know when your ancestors are all in a good place? You will know because everything in your life will start to work out beautifully! Offer tarpanam daily during Mahalaya and receive these benefits: 1st Moon Brings blessings of wealth. 2nd Moon Brings Blessings of continued lineage. 3rd Moon Brings Business prosperity. 4th Moon Brings Ability to triumph over enemies. 5th Moon Brings About prosperity. 6th Moon Brings Fame and good reputation. 7th Moon Increases Inner strength and brings spiritual growth. 8th Moon Increases Intelligence. 9th Moon Increases Support of women in life. 10th Moon Brings Success in profession. 11th Moon Brings Blessings for prosperity of children and growth of their intelligence. 12th Moon Brings Blessings for continuity of lineage and success from education. 13th Moon and 14th Moon Moon Brings possession of vehicles and a life of peace and longevity.
