  5. Sun Enters Libra



This week the countdown to Saturn’s big transit begins with a powerful karma-busting Pradosham day on Monday/Tuesday. On Tuesday, Sun enters Libra. From Sunday, October 15 – Oct 18 Diwali is celebrated by cleaning out your home and office, lighting lamps, and invoking Lakshmi, the Goddess of Prosperity. From October 19 or 20 through 25, Skanda Shasti will be a great opportunity for Muruga to remove debts, illness, enemies, and negativity from your life. Then on October 26th, Saturn will enter Sagittarius for the next 3 years. You can expect a more hopeful, optimistic  time where you can work hard and advance in your goals of creating good fortune in your life. Watch transit predictions based on your Vedic moon sign here.

Sun transits into Libra on Sunday, October 17th and will continue there until November 16, 2017. Libra is a sign of business and partnerships. This month is a great opportunity to boost your prosperity, optimism, and happiness.

This is a good time to focus on business, plan you investments, and to meditate/chant Shreem Brzee to create wealth. Contribute to charity and honor your guru/spiritual teacher. You can take action to improve your skills and knowledge. Be careful not to damage relationships by being egotistical or dominating.

If you want to strengthen your health, increase your self esteem or boost your leadership skills, this month your remedies to the Sun will be more powerful than usual.. Do a virtual pooja on your smart phone or Astroved. Chant Om Suryaya Namaha on Sunday and/or any day during Sun horas. Sunrise and sunset. Or you could chant the Sun’s Gayathri Mantra.

Create wealth with Shreem Brzee! Dr Pillai is empowering this ultimate wealth mantra. Immerse yourself in his Wealth Rising program, or practice Shreem Brzee on your own with the help of Dr Pillai’s many YouTube videos.

This month Sun will transit Nakshatras

Chitra is a star of bright and beautiful things, giving you the ability to be skillful and creative. It is symbolized by a pearl or bright jewel. Chitra can give lots of energy to create and to achieve perfection with skills, crafts, etc.

Swati is the midpoint of the nakshatras – a star of balance associated with Goddess Saraswati. It’s symbol is a flexible young shoot bent in the wind. Swati gives independence and make a person be a born diplomat, socialite, and a successful merchant with principles.

Vishakha is a very goal-oriented star associated with the excitement (and emptiness) you feel when you achieve a goal. One has to constantly choose the positive, life-affirming path over the negative one.

Important Upcoming Events This Week: Check the Pillai Center and the AstroVed Event Calendars for other upcoming events. Depending on where you live, the day of the week will be different.  Check the Panchang with your location to see when you should be observing the rituals.

11th Moon – Ekadasi

Ekadasi is a Sanskrit word meaning eleven. It falls every month twice on the waxing and waning phase of the moon. These days indicate the high and low tides of the sea. The first Ekadasi occurs when the moon is closest to the earth and the next occurs when the moon is farthest from the earth. There are 24 Ekadasis in a year. It is an important fasting day dedicated to Lord Vishnu.  Chant Om Namo Narayanaya. Read about the importance of fasting on Ekadasi here.

Monday, Oct 16th @2:56PM – Tuesday, Oct 17th @ 2:38 PM EST

13th Moon – Pradosham

The 13th Moon phase is called Pradosham, a karma-removing time. When Pradosham occurs on a Tuesday it is known as Runa Vimochana Pradosham. It has the special quality of dissolving negative debt karma. Learn more. Be in a meditative mode during Pradosham time and use the powerful chant of “Thiru Neela Kantam”. Since we accrue karmas every day, karma removal is an ongoing process; quite like cleaning your house or brushing your teeth.

Tuesday, Oct 17th @2:38 – Wednesday Oct 18th @ 02:43 PM EST

Ganesha’s 14th Moon

Remember that Dr. Pillai has said that 2017 is continuing to be a year of Ganesha.  Ganesha is especially very powerful and present on the 4th and 14th moon phases. Call on him to remove your obstacles by chanting his mantra, Om Gum Ganapataye Namaha. Roll and break a coconut or lime(s) to remove obstacles and karma.  Learn how.

Special Wealth-Creating New Moon – Diwali

Each New Moon is a great opportunity to get a clean slate. Enjoying your meditations on this day/night will be particularly powerful. The New Moon is a special time that provides you a great opportunity to connect with your ancestors for solving your problems. Performing the Tarpanam ritual on this day opens energy blocks, and helps you invoke the energies of your ancestors in your life for a healthy, wealthy and negativity-free life. Learn to offer tarpanam here.  Practice Shreem Brzee to create a new prosperous life!

Watch the Zoom Conference Replay.

Enjoy this week’s Meditation Audio.

Sucharita tells us why we need to meditate.  After we have heard all the information on all the upcoming events-Diwali, Skanda Shasti, sun transit, etc.-, we need to digest and process this by diving deep and connecting with our higher selves, or the Divine that lives within each of us. 

Enjoy this week’s Discussion Audio

Sucharita tells us Diwali gives us a great opportunity to donate.  Go to the Tripura Foundation website and click on Donate or Donate Gift Card.  This is a win/win/win situation.  You can give a gift card to someone, which benefits the kids of Tripura, benefits the recipient of the gift card (karmically) and benefits you (karmically)!

Reminder – We now connect on Sundays with Sucharita through the video conference call platform called ZOOM.
