Sun in Gemini: Your Speech and Writing Can Bring You Wealth in 3 Easy Ways

  Have you been hoping for more success or help from powerful people? Or looking for a fresh idea for your startup? If so, there’s good news. According to Vedic astrology, the predictive system of the Rishis and Siddhas of India, the Sun is moving to Gemini on June 14, and will remain in this Mercury-ruled sign until July 16. This means that communication, technology and innovation are about to take an even bigger place in your life. Or if you’ve been focusing already on the same—you can now expect a major and positive turnaround. The ancient seers and astronomers considered the Sun (or Surya in Sanskrit) a most powerful planet of the soul. Moreover, they revealed that this luminary can give us personal power and vitality. So to power up an advertising or PR campaign and approach your audience with more confidence and skill, here for you—three steps you can take right away to reclaim your power and right to succeed. You’ll be surprised at your motivation and the support you’ll get. 1. Fire power The Sun’s heat is more than skin deep. It actually bestows super intelligence. From their altered states of meditation, the yogis could see that the Sun activated key brain centers of understanding and evolution. Mercury is talkative, fast, changeable and soon to join the Sun in Gemini. On June 18, the planet of communication moves in its own sign and will give the Sun even more support.  Plus, Mercury’s intellectual gifts will be maximized. Dr. Pillai says that intelligence equals light—and what planet can bring you as much light as the Sun? Clearly,...
Jupiter Goes Direct: 3 Reasons You Can Grow Your Inspiration and Wealth

Jupiter Goes Direct: 3 Reasons You Can Grow Your Inspiration and Wealth

  If you’re wondering whether the news of Jupiter changing direction on June 9 will affect you, wonder no more. In fact, this is both the best astrological event in quite a while and a real game changer for you and all. Jupiter can make your life delightful through good fortune, opportunities, high-minded vision, trust, faith and optimism. In retrograde since February 6 and under the harsh influence of Saturn, Jupiter’s boons nearly vanished. Pretty much without Jupiter’s benign influence, we risk stumbling in darkness and negativity. This was the belief of both the Rishis and Siddha yogis that wrote the classics of Vedic astrology. So to enjoy the return of Jupiter’s positive energy from Virgo (and later this summer from Libra) here for you—three reasons for rejoicing. Plus, you’ll love the positive effects on your health, outlook and bank account. The Worst is Over Vakri or retrograde planets can act in ‘evil’ ways—bringing good fortune to a sudden halt and delivering confusing situations. Although I personally believe that even difficult experiences can come with a hidden gift, there’s no doubt that you have suffered. Moreover, Jupiter is still being plundered by Saturn’s harsh rays until June 20—imagine a cold shower on your parade. And with the additional retrograde motion, Jupiter’s positively expansive qualities were lost. Perhaps, you saw a sudden reduction of your income or an increase of debts. You might have also noticed a diminished trust in the Divine or felt that good things could simply not happen to you. Parents might have experienced concerns about their offspring’s studies or future. Now you’ll see a clearing on...
