Sucharita welcomed us onto the Powertime Practice call by reminding us that the Sun has transited into Aquarius, the natural 11th sign of the zodiac. This sign has the qualities of gains, profits, and all kinds of goodies! The Sun’s birthday is coming up and the Sun represents our soul. We can gain from the people we meet and the people we interact with at this time. Many types of gains are available. Today is Saturday, February 13, 2021, and we are in Valentine’s weekend!
February 18 is the Sun’s Birthday. Ratha Saptami, or the Birthday of the Sun God, Surya, is a powerful day to revitalize your life force. In Vedic astrology, Sun is supreme as the king of all planets. Since the Sun represents your soul, he is known as Atmakaraka, the soul planet. On this day, the Sun God turns his Ratha (Chariot), drawn by seven horses, from the southeast to the northeast direction. This northward movement of the Sun fills the earth plane with life-replenishing energy that can give you good health, clear vision, authority, and boost intelligence and creativity.
What’s the down side of the Sun? You can get burned by the Sun. However, the Sun can bring in the intelligence to know when to come out of the Sun. Look for the opportunities where you can gain. The sign of Aquarius is the sign of innovation. The Sun can help us to explore opportunities where we can do something greater than our own individual pursuits. Chant the Gayatri mantra: Here are the Gayatri Mantra lyrics and text, both original and English:
Om Bhur Bhuváh Sváhá
Meaning: Ultimate reality, in which physical, astral and causal worlds exist
Tát Savitúr Váreṇyaṃ
Meaning: That is the Supreme reality from which creation happens, and it is the foremost
Bhárgo Devásya Dhīmahi
Meaning: Oh divine effulgence, we meditate upon you
Dhíyo Yó Náḥ Prácho Dáyāt
Meaning: Propel our knowledge of the Supreme reality.
Sucharita showed us a yantra that Dr. Pillai had made after a Nadi Leaf Reading he had several years ago. The yantra has a Sun etched in the center. There are rituals offered at AstroVed and Pillai Center that are celebrating Ratha Sapthami.
