Sun Enters Gemini

hanuman27

The Sun entered Gemini on June 14th, and will continue there through July 16th, the Vedic Summer Solstice. Take advantage of this month to take lots of action towards your goals and interests.

Gemini is a sign ruled by Mercury, and it is called Mithuna in Sanskrit. It is a sign that encompasses a great range of energies. It is symbolized by an embracing couple, with the man holding a club and the woman holding a musical instrument called a lute. This shows that Gemini’s energies are wide enough to encompass physical and brute force as well as the beautiful, refined and artistic.

Gemini has a lot to do with communication and the thinking mind. You may want to do some research, reading, or study. It will be a good time to focus on communications, marketing, doing business, money, being quick and developing strategies. Take some measured risks where you plan it out and are practical. Taking risks helps you move forward in your life.

Mercury enters Gemini today, June 18th. He will be very strong in his own sign, so this will be a good chance to develop your mercurial skills. Learn something new in technology, business know-how, astrology, public speaking, writing.

Mars is also transiting Gemini. This can make your mind and relationships with siblings/friends more active, quick, and fiery. Be careful not to argue.

Sun will be Traveling through the Nakshatras of Gemini
Mrigasira is a star of curiosity symbolized by a deer’s head. It has deerlike qualities of timidity, sensitivity, and fickleness. Mrigasira corresponds to four stars in the constellation of Orion. Mrigasira also has qualities of the moon such as gentleness, perceptivity, sensuality. Goddess Parvati was born under this star. Mrigasira is oriented toward enjoyment and goddess energy.

Ardra is a star of compassion and effort. A tear of compassion is its symbol. This is Lord Siva’s own birthstar. Ardra can give you the ability to work hard to alleviate suffering of others. It’s associated with thunder and lightning rainstorms. Storms are intense but clean up the environment and lead to a fresh start. Ardra is a bright star called Betelguese now, located in the constellation of Orion. Ardra is more analytical and research oriented than Mrigasira.

Punarvasu is a star of renewal, of making things good again. Repetition and recycling are themes.  It is related to the mother earth and taking care of the environment. Punarvasi consists of two bright stars, Castor and Pollux. It is symbolized by a quiver of arrows. By itself, an arrow is easily broken, but bundled together arrow are strong and unbreakable. Has to do with going on a journey or mission and coming back safely. Can store up resources. Rama was born in the Punarvasu star.

Saturn re-enters Scorpio this week
Saturn will be entering Scorpio again on Tuesday, June 20th. Saturn will be making you revisit the lessons of the past two years from now until October 27th, when he will move on to Sagittarius.  Saturn’s influence will make you to look at the area of life that he’s influencing in your chart and take care of unfinished business. Scorpio is a sign of transformation, so it’s time to change what’s no longer working for you. Saturn will affect you according to what house (1-12) Scorpio is for you in your own personal chart:

  1. Personality, physical body
  2. Finances, Income, eating
  3. Risk-taking, courage
  4. Mind, material comforts, mother
  5. Children, manifestations, God
  6. Overcoming disease, enemies, litigation; selfless service
  7. Relationships
  8. Overcoming obstacles, accidents
  9. Grace, compassion, father
  10. Profession
  11. Profit, community, friends
  12. Enlightenment, stopping loss consciousness, foreign travel, sleep, isolated places, selfless service.

Remember you can always make better friends with Saturn by helping those who are needy, such as feeding people/making a donation/helping people on Saturdays. And burning a lamp with sesame seed oil on Saturdays.

Favorable Activities:

  • Make it an action-packed month. Be more active and use your determination to accomplish tasks associated with your goals, interests, hobbies, and education. Cultivate your mercurial qualities by giving a presentation, learning a new technology, taking training or furthering your education. Increase your business intelligence. Or even learn more about astrology.
  • Take some calculated risks that will move you forward towards your objectives.
  • Avoid conflicts with people. If you are angry, wait to cool off before you send an email or have an important conversation.
  • Express yourself through your hobbies and interests. Enjoy your sense of humor – laughing lets more light in and refreshes your positive mental outlook.

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. 

AstroVed and Pillai Center offer “fire labs” on a regular basis.  What are fire labs?  Fire Lab, a term coined by Dr. Pillai, is based on the ritualistic practice of using fire, which is found in many cultures all over the world. Not limited to any one religion, it is a universal, multidimensional technology to communicate with non-physical intelligences. These are the Angels, Gods, and Goddess (Archetypes) that the prophets, messiahs, and seers of all religions were in contact with. The Archetypes were the supernatural source behind their healing miracles, their other-worldly intuition, and their power over the material world. The Fire Lab was, and still is considered to be the most powerful way to connect with these celestial beings, as fire is the bridge between physical and non-physical realities.

Sucharita also reminded everyone about the Shreem Brzee Initiations that are taking place in Toronto, (being given by Sucharita herself!) and Los Angeles and San Francisco (being given by Mohini). Learn more here.  Once you sign up for the initiation with Sucharita in Toronto, email her your payment receipt and then she will provide timeslots from which to choose. Dr. Pillai will be giving a group initiation in New York City in August before he leaves the USA for India.  Learn more here.

Dr. Pillai will also be giving a group Shreem Brzee Initiation at the Guru Purnima event Sign up soon!

13th Moon – Pradosham
The 13th Moon phase is called Pradosham, a karma-removing time. It has the special quality of dissolving negative debt karma. Karma is not just a metaphysical philosophy. It is real, and it wants to manifest into your life for better or worse. The planets trigger your karmic seeds that already exist. Clearing karma while it is in seed form is not difficult, but it requires being alert and focused. A lot of bad karma can be avoided just by staying conscious, but once a strong karma has taken root, then you need professional help. The 13th Moon (Pradosham) has the mystical powers to dissolve your karma. Participate in the karma-removal Pradosham rituals on on June 21, 2017 (IST). Learn more.

Thursday, June 22th @6:08 AM 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.

Friday, June 23rd @2:20 AM EST
New Moon
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.

Dr. Pillai – Creating Through the Word

shutterstock_355615226resized

Sucharita welcomed us this morning June 11. 2017 by mentioning there is a live stream on Pillai Center on “Creating Through The Word” and that we will listen to it during the first part of our call. Dr. Pillai discussed what The Word is and how it relates to creation. He says if you understand The Word, you understand everything!  Here is the link to his Creating Through the Word video.  Elaine, also known as Mohini, a long time devotee and teacher of Dr. Pillai gave a follow up teaching on his talk, A Deeper Experience of the Holy Spirit.  She will bring the feminine quality of the Goddess into the teaching.

Sucharita continued with our Sundays with Sucharita call and relayed a story about how she used this teaching to manifest a solution to some problems that she was having with her computer during Dr. Pillai’s teaching on The Word. Dr. Pillai said, “ask and you shall receive” and that is what she did!  This is from the Bible, Matthew 7:7.  She said to read this passage every day until you get a true understanding of what it means.  God is the power behind The Word and Guru is God on earth.  The Holy Spirit is moving through Dr. Pillai, as our guru, and he is making himself available to everyone everywhere!  He says to respect all the teachings from all the masters that have ever been on earth because they have all come to the earth to help the human race evolve. 

Sucharita mentions that we must remember to be charitable.  By being charitable, we will receive everything we need and more.  This paves the way for others to receive what you have.  The Tripura Foundation is an easy way to be charitable.  Dr. Pillai has it all set up and all you have to do is push a button!  Tripura Foundation shares science-based, transformational tools within educational and feeding programs that activate the highest potential of people oppressed by poverty. The results? Empowered children, inspired families and uplifted communities who open doors to a world of peace, love and prosperity for all. Here is a link to the Tripura Foundation.

Dr. Pillai cannot fix our problems, because they are our problems.  But he can, however, give us the tools to fix them ourselves!  We have to ask the Divine to show us how and what to do.  When we reach the end of rope, we must simply surrender to the Divine.

Wednesday, June 14, the Sun is entering Gemini, and Radha will be giving a transit report next Sunday, which is also Father’s Day.  Sucharita tells us to connect with our father’s, whether they are here on earth or already passed on.  Get the blessings from your father!  One way to do this is to offer the passed-on fathers and grandfathers the tarpanam ritual.  Learn how to do the Tarpanam ritual here. See the list of upcoming events to see the Rituals offered at AstroVed for Father’s day.

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.

Ganesha’s 4th 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.  On this day, the Moon will transit the star Uttarashada, which is closely associated with Ganesha. Honoring Ganesha in the form of Dhundi Ganapathy on this day can bring you blessings of protection from obstacles as well as assistance with your pathway to enlightenment. AstroVed is offering a Fire Lab this day to honor Ganesha.  Learn more

6th Moon – Muruga’s Power Time

Muruga specializes in solving problems such as credit card debt, legal issues, health problems, etc. Call on Muruga by chanting Om SaRaVaNaBaVa on this day and by pouring milk/juice/water over a vel.

Dr Pillai’s Holy Spirit Message

hari-rama-01091003-crppd

Sucharita welcomed us today on the June 4, 2017 Sundays with Sucharita call, by allowing us to hear the entire Pentecostal Video by Dr. Pillai, which was broadcast on Facebook this morning.  She considered this to be so important that she forewent our meditation and opened the Sundays with Sucharita call right away for sharing and questions.   Some peoz on to share their experiences during the call.  One person was inspired to go to the Bible to re-read the passage in the Bible that Dr. Pillai talked about in the video: John 20. Another person experienced the kundalini rise up the spine and shower and refresh her whole being.

She explains that Dr. Pillai has been talking a lot about the Holy Spirit lately.  The Holy Spirit will remove our “Mind Fog” through our satguru Dr. Pillai. (Satguru is a title given specifically only to an enlightened rishi/saint whose life’s purpose is to guide initiated shishya along the spiritual path, the summation of which is the realization of the Self through realization of God, who is omnipresent.)   For 50 days following Easter we have been asking the Holy Spirit to come and reveal the Truth.  Dr. Pillai has asked us to connect with the Holy Spirit through the Kalki Karuppaswamy avatar to reveal the truth of why we are here on the earth plane.  The earth plane is a plane of existence, not just a ball hurtling though space.  It is a place of opposites and duality: push and pull, yin and yang, good and bad, black and white. One reason we came here is to figure out that duality is an illusion!  We are all one and we are all part of God!

Sucharita explained that the Dr. Pillai blew the Holy Breath into each of us and recommended that we listen to this video again and again. 

Watch Dr Pillai’s Pentacostal Holy Spirit Webcast.

Download the Audio

There was a follow up video that Dr. Pillai mentioned his video, given by long-time devotee and teacher, Mohini.  In it she gives a further technique to receive the Holy Spirit that builds upon the initiation that Dr. Pillai bestowed upon us. 
Be sure to watch the Holy Spirit Experience video.

Sucharita tells us to continually remember the “blowing” into us of the Holy Spirit by Dr. Pillai and this will enliven our shaktis.  Sometimes it takes practicing and reliving this initiation many times to get the benefits offered.  She tells us to allow the Holy Spirit to move through us however it happens!  This experience will be different for everyone, from very subtle changes to mind-blowing head smack!  We do not have to do anything to have an experience.  We will be aligned with the available energy that we are able to take in and that will determine our experiences.  The gates of heaven have opened up and we must allow this energy to pour through us.  If every one of us, all around the world, can do this, we can create a net over the whole globe, a net of love.

Today is the 11th moon and this is Vishnu’s moon.  Kalki Karuppaswamy is an avatar of Vishnu that Dr. Pillai has asked us to connect with and today is a good day to do this.  Chant Om namo narayanaya all day.   Say The Lord’s Prayer or tap your third eye and do a “google search” for a “prayer of the day”.  This could be the beginning of your new life! Forgiveness could begin and forgiveness is the greatest gift we can give and receive.  This is the beginning of enlightenment!

Muruga’s birthday is coming up Wednesday June 7 and he is the destroyer of disease, debt and litigation.  Dr. Pillai tells us to tap into the energies of all the archetypes, such as Lord Muruga, to take advantage of the powers they offer.  We start out small and grow this energy inside of us until we understand that we are not our little self but we are Divine! There is an event on AstroVed celebrating Muruga’s Birthday.

Sucharita ended our call by reminding us to go and listen to the Pentecostal Video again and again, as well as sign up for the Guru Purnima event in San Diego this July 5!

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.

Muruga’s Birthday-Vaikasi Visakam
LIVE Webcast at 7:00 a.m. EDT on Wednesday June 7th

Vaikasi Visakam, the Birthday of Lord Muruga, falls on a Visakam Nakshatra in the Tamil month of Vaikasi (Mid May and June). His birthday is the perfect time to connect with him to diffuse bad karma, whether it is money, health, or relationships. The birthdays of archetypes are special, as on this day you can feel his archetypal energy closest to the Earth plane. It is one of the easiest ways to establish a heartfelt connection with Muruga. A heart connection with Lord Muruga means Muruga is alive for you, and he can help you in tangible and practical ways.

Thursday, June 8th @6:46 AM EST
Full Moon
Every Full Moon is a power time for wealth and enlightenment. Goddess energy is particularly present. Doing your spiritual practices and meditations on this day/night will be very powerful. Shreem Brzee is the ultimate wealth mantra. There will be a fire lab offered at AstroVed on Friday morning which is still the full moon. The grace of Lakshmi is very pure on Friday as she is the overlord of Venus, the planet which rules Friday. The Full Moon is one of the most powerful times to benefit from the sounds Shreem Brzee. The Full Moon will be in the star Jyesta, which carries an energy of success and gain. All of these elements combine on this day to make for a supercharged time to honor Goddess Lakshmi to acquire wealth and abundance consciousness. Learn more
