  5. Sun in Gemini: Your...



Have you been hoping for more success or help from powerful people? Or looking for a fresh idea for your startup? If so, there’s good news.

According to Vedic astrology, the predictive system of the Rishis and Siddhas of India, the Sun is moving to Gemini on June 14, and will remain in this Mercury-ruled sign until July 16.

This means that communication, technology and innovation are about to take an even bigger place in your life. Or if you’ve been focusing already on the same—you can now expect a major and positive turnaround.

The ancient seers and astronomers considered the Sun (or Surya in Sanskrit) a most powerful planet of the soul. Moreover, they revealed that this luminary can give us personal power and vitality.

So to power up an advertising or PR campaign and approach your audience with more confidence and skill, here for you—three steps you can take right away to reclaim your power and right to succeed. You’ll be surprised at your motivation and the support you’ll get.

1. Fire power

The Sun’s heat is more than skin deep. It actually bestows super intelligence. From their altered states of meditation, the yogis could see that the Sun activated key brain centers of understanding and evolution.

Mercury is talkative, fast, changeable and soon to join the Sun in Gemini. On June 18, the planet of communication moves in its own sign and will give the Sun even more support.  Plus, Mercury’s intellectual gifts will be maximized.

Dr. Pillai says that intelligence equals light—and what planet can bring you as much light as the Sun? Clearly, the Sun reigns supreme.

So you can probably imagine your brain on a power charger, as old obstacles and doubts disappear.

You can connect with the higher octave of both the Sun and Mercury with some traditional and time-tested sounds.

  • Recite OM SURYAYA NAMAHA 108 times on Sundays to receive energy and self-confidence from the Sun.
  • Recite OM BUDHAYA NAMAHA 108 times on Wednesdays to boost your intellectual capacities and good humor.

2. Meditation for success

Another domain of the Sun that is now receiving celestial support is your career. That’s because the Sun can grant you higher ambitions and a great desire to help others through your work and expertise.

As Mercury can be flighty, meditation will benefit your mind, your career and work—eliminating mental stress and too much emphasis on the intellect. With three planets now in Gemini—you’ll need some grounding.




The following short practice can change your life, calm your energy and will also power up your goals.

  • If possible, do this at sunrise or sometime before sunset. Set a timer. Sit in a quiet place and close your eyes.
  • Put your attention on your eyes and visualize white light in the eyes.
  • Then visualize white light everywhere—in your body and in your environment. Stay with these images. If the mind wanders, gently bring it back to the light.
  • When you’re ready, open your eyes.
  • You’ll feel both amazingly refreshed and energized and your career will witness a boost, too. 

 3. Vedic ceremonies for peace and success

The red-hot planet of courage, defense and action, Mars, is also in Gemini. So three planets—the Sun, Mercury and Mars—will be alternatively crossing a very powerful point in the constellation called Arudra or Alpha Orion. There is an incredible magnetic pull in this spot in the sky.

The ancient seers associated this star with a very fierce archetype—a powerful form of Shiva that is known as Rudra. While this celestial archetype can help you destroy bad habits and renew your resolve to succeed, it’s also a lot of energy that needs channeling.

For success, win-win outcomes and miracles in your career, the Siddhas recommend sponsoring Fire Labs (or fire rituals) to Vishnu and Shiva. These two benevolent beings are believed to be on call to help humanity overcome difficulties, and experience happiness and evolution.
