  5. Ganesha Descends – Vedic...


On April 13, 2016 at 10:15 a.m. EDT the Sun transits into the first house of the zodiac, Aries, and becomes exalted. Sun will be in Aries for one month.

This transit brings in a new energy for the entire year, and is celebrated as the Vedic New Year. This Vedic New Year is called Dhurmukhi, which translates to the bad or wicked rising up and then being defeated by the powers of good. Astroved notes:

“Truthfulness, goodness, and justice will prevail at the end. Those who work with integrity will enjoy the good benefits of respectability, money, and prosperity.”

The star of the day will be Punarvasu, which brings in the energy of Jupiter, of Mother Earth, freedom, prosperity, and of things becoming good again. It is symbolized by a bundle of arrows. Individually, an arrow can easily be broken. Bundled together, they are strong and unbreakable.

Exalted Sun this month gives you opportunities to make friends with him and strengthen your health and your endeavors. The Sun is your soul, your vitality, royalty consciousness, and symbolizes your father.

Aries is the most action-oriented of all the signs. It is called Mesha in Sanskrit. Aries is a fiery, movable sign symbolized by a ram. A ram is an agile, adventurous animal that can climb up mountain slopes that look impossibly steep. Sometimes rams butt heads with others.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which relates to yourself, identity, and physical body. It is ruled by Mars, a planet of action, problem-solving, and courage.

GANESHA is becoming extremely powerful in his ability to help you remove any type of obstacles in your life. Dr. Pillai will be broadcasting a Vedic New Year webcast called Ganesha Descending on Wednesday, April 13th at 9 p.m. EDTLearn more.  Note: I signed up yesterday and the confirmation email included a coupon code for 10,008 proxy mantra writing of Om Gum Ganapataye Namaha!
