Watch this week’s video on the Pillai Center Practice YouTube Channel, Powertime Practice 2020 playlist.


Sucharita welcomed us all on the Powertime Practice call on Saturday, Sep. 19, 2020. We have been on such a rocket ship ride with Dr. Pillai’s teachings, especially during the Mahalaya time for the last two weeks. Mahalaya was the time that the ancestors came close to the earth plane to get sustenance from the descendants (us) and to give blessings to them.

Now that we have blessings from the ancestors, we must look at something that will be setting the stage for our lives for the next 18 months. Rahu and Ketu will set the stage us for the next 18 months. Dr. Pillai calls these entities “shadow planets.” Rahu and Ketu are symbolic snakes, one having a head and one having a tail. They are actually the nodes of the moon’s orbit around the earth.

Every 18 months, these shadow planets set the stage for us to have out-of-the-box experiences. The theme of this coming transit is to be ambitious and achieve your goals. On Sep. 23 these planets will be moving into a new astrological sign and bring up different past life karmas. This will play a significant role in shaping your present life thinking. Karma is your thinking. Your thinking is impacted by your ancestors and by your astrological birth chart.

From now until April 12, 2022, Rahu, the north node of the moon, will be moving through Taurus, a Venus-ruled planet. This will boost your creativity and attract new ways to affect your abundance and finances. You will do this in a way that is very creative. Let’s get the Rahu energy to assist us in our manifestations! Rahu is a Venus-ruling planet will want you to have a good time. Addictions could rear their heads! Learn to control your speech!

Ketu is the south node of the moon and is associated with the occult spiritual teachings and will be transiting into the sign of Scorpio. Ketu will help you to detach from things that are not in your best interests, such as jealousy, envy, and gluttony. These are hidden enemies that can be eliminated if you are aware. Ketu can help you to be steady internally. There are astrological services that are being offered at AstroVed that you could take advantage of to help you understand where Rahu and Ketu are in your chart. Get a reading here.

Sucharita mentions that Swamini Valli has a great blog about the Rahu Ketu transit.

Navaratri or Nine nights of the Goddess is coming, and from Oct. 1-25 we are going to come together daily to chant the mantras of the goddess. Stay tuned for details. There are many services offered at Pillai Center to honor the Goddess.

We are coming up on some very intense times and the Goddesses are going to be helping us not to be distracted by all the turmoil outside of us.
