Venus in Taurus: Take 3 Easy Steps to Luxury and Relationship Bliss

Venus in Taurus: Take 3 Easy Steps to Luxury and Relationship Bliss

  In Vedic astrology, it’s said that when a planet enters its swakshetra or own sign, it becomes stronger and brings good results. When the planet is Venus—the world rejoices as people can form happier relationships and acquire financial wealth. On June 29, this planet of romance and assets is leaving a difficult spot in Aries, in which Venus’ gentle and accommodating qualities were seriously jeopardized. You might have witnessed more arguments in relationships due to Mars (the ruler of Aries) hurling angry words from Gemini. Or sudden attractions were formed, followed by equally sudden endings. Now until July 26, Venus will be in a position to restore your faith that the fineries and pleasures of life can actually happen to you. A new car, a lovely home, redecoration of your living and work space, a stronger and more enjoyable relationship, jewelry, artworks, and good food will be more available. So because this is a short, one-month transit and you don’t want to miss this happy time window, here for you—three easy tips to make a small shift from anger to harmony, and from economic ups and downs to solid (and lasting) finances. It’s all in the image Do you have a mental picture of what you want? Not just the dreams you want to fulfill, but also the many details of the beautiful changes you’ll experience. Dr. Pillai tells us that to manifest, we can put an image of the desired object in the third eye or pineal gland.

Can Guru Purnima Help You Become the Best You Can Be?

Can Guru Purnima Help You Become the Best You Can Be?

  Whether you’ve been studying with Dr. Pillai or just beginning, you might be happy to hear about a special time window that can accelerate your evolution by hundreds, if not thousands, of times. Guru Purnima or Full Moon of the Guru is a yearly celebration of a great lunar event eagerly awaited by all yogis from spiritual traditions spanning millennia. In India, there’s a belief that without a Guru we risk living our life in darkness or ignorance, repeating mistakes that are due to our karmic thoughts with nearly no hope for change. Receiving the blessings of your guru on the Full Moon of the Guru is said to lead you to higher states of consciousness and to gaining supernormal powers.     According to the Tamil Siddhas, Guru Purnima’s lunar energy raises the collective consciousness on earth, and benevolent celestial beings and ascended Siddhas flock here in their light bodies. This year Guru Purnima begins on July 7 at 22:01 EDT and ends just past midnight on July 9. Who is the Guru? Truly enlightened gurus help their students gain more confidence, higher intelligence, compassion, the capacity to give and receive love, lasting well-being and the ability to solve all problems. Notably, powerful individuals such as Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg have admitted that their connection to a guru—Neem Karoli Baba—was instrumental for reaching incredible success after times of financial uncertainty. Receiving direct teachings and guidance from a spiritual teacher or guru holds great importance in India. This makes sense if we think that we need to be taught nearly everything—the steps for career advancement, education, sports...
Sun in Gemini: Your Speech and Writing Can Bring You Wealth in 3 Easy Ways

Sun in Gemini: Your Speech and Writing Can Bring You Wealth in 3 Easy Ways

  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,...
Jupiter Goes Direct: 3 Reasons You Can Grow Your Inspiration and Wealth

Jupiter Goes Direct: 3 Reasons You Can Grow Your Inspiration and Wealth

  If you’re wondering whether the news of Jupiter changing direction on June 9 will affect you, wonder no more. In fact, this is both the best astrological event in quite a while and a real game changer for you and all. Jupiter can make your life delightful through good fortune, opportunities, high-minded vision, trust, faith and optimism. In retrograde since February 6 and under the harsh influence of Saturn, Jupiter’s boons nearly vanished. Pretty much without Jupiter’s benign influence, we risk stumbling in darkness and negativity. This was the belief of both the Rishis and Siddha yogis that wrote the classics of Vedic astrology. So to enjoy the return of Jupiter’s positive energy from Virgo (and later this summer from Libra) here for you—three reasons for rejoicing. Plus, you’ll love the positive effects on your health, outlook and bank account. The Worst is Over Vakri or retrograde planets can act in ‘evil’ ways—bringing good fortune to a sudden halt and delivering confusing situations. Although I personally believe that even difficult experiences can come with a hidden gift, there’s no doubt that you have suffered. Moreover, Jupiter is still being plundered by Saturn’s harsh rays until June 20—imagine a cold shower on your parade. And with the additional retrograde motion, Jupiter’s positively expansive qualities were lost. Perhaps, you saw a sudden reduction of your income or an increase of debts. You might have also noticed a diminished trust in the Divine or felt that good things could simply not happen to you. Parents might have experienced concerns about their offspring’s studies or future. Now you’ll see a clearing on...

Mars in Gemini: Increase Your Genius and Gain in Business in 3 Easy Steps

  How do you like issuing ultimatums? Not at all? If you’re like most, you’d rather ask nicely for what you want, and others will likely respond more positively. Yet sometimes, honey and sugar just won’t do and in a sale or transaction or news report or business acquisition you’ll just need to tell it like it is. In Vedic astrology, Mars (or Kuja or Mangala in Sanskrit) is a power planet: it brings you courage, energy, defense, and action. Now, what you do with these gifts is all up to you. So take a deep breath and try the following three steps to turn things in your favor. Only caution: remember to be your usual ethical self or it might boomerang. Be strong and assertive yet sociable, and you’ll enjoy this transit to the max. 1. Channel your energy While Mars in Gemini is not for the faint of heart, you’ll now have extra stamina, courage, and action-packed decision power to take all your projects and launch them at super speed. Yes—we all needed this after the somewhat sleepy influence of Mars in Taurus. Choose your target. In marketing, use your energy to devise the best strategies to sell your products and raise your income. In a PR campaign, use your writing and speaking talents to get the attention of influential media people. Be firm yet flexible and you’ll win. Buy your new laptop, video camera, or tablet—you’ll be so determined that you won’t delay another day. Present your ideas with flair but tone it down a notch, as you may not realize that you’re speaking in a...
