  5. Mars Direct in Libra:...



How long has it been since you felt truly motivated to jumpstart your life? Sidereal Mars makes a great spiritual warrior, according to the Rishis and Vedic texts.

He is the good-looking red being and powerhouse behind your routine, self-discipline and crossed-out tasks.

But when this blood-red planet goes retrograde, he is believed to turn both very strong and exceedingly difficult.

From last April, retrograde Mars wild and unpredictable behavior—both from Scorpio in the company of inimical Saturn and later from Libra—shook the world with some horrific events.

Also from Libra, the 7th natural house of relationships, diplomacy and compromise, a poorly behaved Mars was probably one of the causes behind the recently severed ties between the UK and the EU. Britain had joined the EU in 1973!

The ruler of Libra, Venus, wasn’t much help either, being severely combust—a Vedic astrology term for a planet losing much of its juice (or positive characteristics) due to excessive closeness to the Sun.

Finally, Mars returns to direct motion on June 29—when he is believed to reacquire many of his positive qualities along with some traits we need to watch out for.

So without further ado, get this easy, three-step guide to fix your relationship, tap into renewed motivation for your creative endeavors and fix yourself up, along with your home, because the best is yet to come.

Pretty harmonious demeanor1

Mars or Kuja, his Sanskrit name, is athletic. From Libra there’s a certain charm and mediation to Mars’ force.

You may now put much of your attention and strength into making things lovely—embellishing both your physical shape and your designs.

If you want more beauty and love, you can now enjoy a respite from the recent stresses.

Tread lightly

Until July 12, Mars in the sign of Venus can make or break a relationship. It’s up to your self-control to smooth feathers and make nice.

In matters of equality you need to put down your assertiveness and put up with another person’s needs.

At work too, diplomacy will get better results—especially now with three loquacious planets in Gemini, where speaking too fast can cause an embarrassment or two.

Fix It All

This is one of my favorite parts of Vedic astrology—the legacy of the Rishis and Siddha masters who left us many tools and remedies for making our lives better, righting wrongs and bringing more beauty and love into the world.

Dr. Pillai doesn’t believe in suffering as a means to evolution and certainly, he doesn’t value waiting for things to get better. Rather, his paradigm integrates both Western scientific research and ancient Indian wisdom to speed up time and bring relief from difficulties—whether it’s due to money, health or relationships.

Try this

On Tuesdays, recite OM MANGALAYA NAMAHA 108 times to invoke Mars and receive his positive influence on your social life, projects, fitness and motivation.

If you want to buy a house or are looking for a better apartment, ask both Mars and Muruga for help.

You can invoke Muruga with the sounds OM SHARAVANA BAVAYA NAMAHA 54 times. These sound vibrations will grant you courage, beauty and dissuade your enemies or competitors.

Sponsored Fire Labs to Mars, Hanuman and Muruga are your highway to achievement, as they work faster than other remedies. These rituals have been recommended by the Siddhas as well as the Vedic seers for thousands of years.

Enjoy the energies!
