Sun Enters Capricorn

This month, the Sun is transiting through Capricorn, making it a great time to focus on your career and life purpose. Sun’s entrance into Capricorn 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. This month is going a good time to reassess what you are doing and change course if needed. Let go of bad habits and old ways of being. Empower your goals by writing them and/or creating a vision board. Enjoy Nambu Herb’s tips on Goal-Setting. The Sun symbolizes our soul, activity, royalty, and the father. The Sun nourishes the whole world with its light. Capricorn, or Makara in Sanskrit, is a sign of ancient past life abilities and ancient past life karmas. It is symbolized by an animal with the head of a deer and the hind part of a crocodile. A deer is a very gentle and curious animal, while a crocodile is an ancient predator that has enormous strength and patience. Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, is a planet of discipline, perseverance, restrictions, and compassion. Capricorn can bring unexpected skills back to life provided that you clean up karmas from the past. These would be skills that you worked on in past lives. You may become aware of any past life powers, abilities, and/or karmas. Take advantage of your...

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...

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...
