Sun and Venus in Taurus: Soul Celebration

Sun and Venus in Taurus: Soul Celebration
It is that beautiful time of year when summer starts to settle in, the sun shines free of clouds, temperatures kindle and the nostalgia of summer takes hold. This transformation into the summer season has many themes and connotations which include love, nature and enjoyment of the beauty and pleasures of life. This seasonal shift is being encouraged and aligned astrologically in a incredibly potent, brilliant and tantric way.

The Sun entered the Venus owned sign of Taurus on Sunday May 15 and will remain in Taurus until Tuesday June 14. Venus entered its own sign of Taurus on Friday May 20 and will remain in Taurus until Sunday June 12. In brief, the Sun and Venus will be in conjunction traveling in Taurus from May 20 to June 12.  This incredibly pleasurable, sensual, enjoyable, celebratory and soul satisfying shift embodies the beginning of summer. Therefore, Venus and the Sun are encouraging an incredibly potent start to the summer in which full light shines on the pleasure, beauty, satisfaction, and celebration of life.

Connected Towards Beauty ... 
Taurus is a sign owned by Venus and inherently is connected towards beauty, the senses, possessions, accumulations, attachments and wealth. One of the primary spiritual karmas of Taurus is the seeking of stability, pleasure, beauty, security and consistency. On the tamasic and rajasic side of Taurus we have the seeking of stability and enjoyment through external means such as wealth, possessions, relationships, tastes, sex, substances, power and anything else one might desire externally for security or stability.

On the sattvic side of Taurus we have the seeking of balance and stability through patience and detachment; we find an energy where true balance and harmony come from finding stability within. This inner stability is inherently connected to incomparable loyalty and devotion. Taurus represents our desire for stability, pleasure, and the journey towards security through external and internal means. Taurus is inherently connected towards the soul's ability to achieve wealth, success and prosperity, and has symbolic significance relating to our karma around wealth, love, attachments, possessions and the senses.

Very Potent Energy ... 
The Sun when it entered Taurus created a very potent energy that some astrologers would say is traditionally unfavorable. This is due to the fact that astrologically speaking the Sun and Venus are enemies. The reasoning behind this unfavorable conjunction can be brought to our attention through metaphor and analogy. The Sun here is representative of a King, fully realized in his own power, a leader of his own domain and also empowered to lead, command and direct others. The Sun represents the individual will and full realization of a healthy ego.

One of the Sun’s primary karmas is to align the individual with their dharma or soul’s direction. The Sun or King inherently embodies dharma through understanding and fulfilling his will, which represents the soul's direction or potential. Venus here is representative of the Princess, who embodies refinement, sophistication, and grace. She is remarkably beautiful and adorned with the finest clothing and jewelry. Our Princess, Venus, is concerned here with everything that life has to offer; all extremes of experience, all pleasures and all things that are beautiful. She is concerned with finding balance and harmony, as well as experiencing all of the pleasure and beauty that life has to offer.

The King loves the Princess and the Sun inherently does not possess true enemies but often one could see how the King could be displeased with the Princess due to her preoccupation with wealth, possessions, pleasure and also for lack of purpose or true identity. Displeased with her lack of power, strength and leadership abilities. The Princess, or Venus, on the other hand is very displeased with her father the King. She sees his inflated ego and thirst for power and dominance as totally disgusting, unrefined, and simply distasteful. Venus is uncomfortable with the Sun's lack of attention towards pleasure and beauty and the Sun finds Venus' attention towards beauty and pleasure superficial, vain and lacking depth.

VenusInterestingly, Venus is traveling in conjunction with the Sun in Taurus and Taurus empowers Venus. Here we have the King giving up his primary energies to the Princess. We have the father (the Sun) who succumbs to his daughter’s wishes, desires and whims. Symbolically speaking, the father has given his wallet to his daughter and told her to enjoy herself and by all means she will in the traditional ways in which Venus and Taurus know best.

The Sun's incredible power, strength, light and energy is being offered to Venus during this time period. This means that the soul’s direction, the soul's satisfaction, the souls destiny at this time is deeply connected towards Venus and her expressions. At other times the Sun or soul’s destiny/direction may be concerned primarily with career, reputation, religion, spirituality and other potent life areas. Due to this Sun and Venus conjunction in Taurus, the soul’s destiny/direction is primarily concerned with the beauty, pleasure, and external manifestations of life. This implies that the soul is deeply satisfied during this period by celebrating life in all its various forms, especially as it relates to love, music, art and drama.

This time is a spark plug igniting us with all of the beautiful aspects of life which may have taken a back seat due to other priorities. This practically translates to celebrating the beginning of summer in a way that embodies the celebration of life and all of the beautiful things in which life has to offer. This is an incredibly potent time to start new relationships and to deepen current relationships because the Sun is encouraging power and deep soul connections through Venus’ expressions of love and beauty. This is an incredibly potent time to have accumulations and possessions that deeply satisfy on a soul level. These accumulations can be expressed in a multitude of forms including money, diplomas, degrees, clothes, jewelry, and romantic/sensual experiences.

Sun In VenusAnother powerful indication during this time period is that the Sun will be lending power to Taurus and Venus in terms of finding stability and security. This conjunction is highly auspicious as it aids with stability and security in relationships, as well as with one’s financial condition or status. It can help us find security and stability in our dharma in a way that is pleasurable and satisfying for this is a time of soul celebration, where the soul is deeply satisfied and nourished by experiencing all the fruits of life; in experiencing love, beauty, music, art, pleasure, romance and nature. This is a time where the soul’s energy is primarily concerned with the inherent beauty and celebration of life and this astrological alignment is a powerful encouragement to give one’s heart and soul to the appreciation, and prioritization of soul celebration.

Ketu in Aquarius: Vibration of Ideal Transformation

Vibration of Ideal Transformation
Ketu is a spiritual entity which relates to the South node of the moon. This force contains powerful metaphysical energies which are linked to the Soul’s spiritual path towards Moksha.  Moksha relates to enlightenment and liberation, both in this lifetime, and the next, as it prepares us for transformation at the time of death.  Ketu is a force in which one of the main karmas is to reorient and reorganize our lives to our highest spiritual frequency, to our highest mystical vibration, to an alignment with our dharma and to an alignment with our path towards liberation. Another one of Ketu’s main karmas is that it seeks to employ and express lessons through aligning our lives with our path towards Moksha or enlightenment, and it does that at all costs, often causing undesirable effects on a material realm manifestation.

Path Towards Enlightenment - Moksha
Often times our path towards enlightenment or Moksha is connected towards certain aspects of detachment, loss, and the concept of surrender.  Ketu’s primary force is to encourage us to detach from aspects and areas of our lives that we are most attached to; those areas that we seek to control.  Ketu works through a mechanism of erratic loss, taking away those attachments which are preventing us from liberation.  Ketu encourages surrender of control by causing certain events or life situations to seem completely erratic, unexplainable, and out of control thus forcing surrender and ultimately helping us on our path towards Moksha.

Sometimes there are certain obstacles in our lives that prevent us from an ideal connection with the Divine, bringing us farther away from our path towards Moksha and liberation from the body.  Ketu will place many spiritual obstacles in front of a Soul’s path in order to realign them with their highest spiritual frequency and proper path towards enlightenment. In the ancient text, Ketu is referred to as the presenter of obstacles because it presents profound spiritual obstacles.  When we conquer and move through these obstacles, Ketu realigns us with our spiritual truth and our path towards Moksha or enlightenment.  It is a divine reorganizer and reconnecter to our highest spiritual truth and path towards enlightenment.

Powerful Auspicious Energy
Now is a great time to transform yourself spiritually or work on your relationship to the Universe because Ketu is in Aquarius. Ketu entered the Saturn owned sign of Aquarius January 30th, 2016 and will remain in Aquarius until August 18, 2017. Aquarius and its relationship to Saturn bodes well for Ketu, as Ketu is counted amongst Saturn’s friends and has a powerful auspicious energy in its alignment with Aquarius.

Aquarius is an incredibly powerful sign relating to idealism, optimism, consciousness, and progressive. It is a sign which resembles the most progressive universal consciousness available at any given time and represents the transformation of our consciousness, the transformation towards progression, and our ability to intuitively align with the most ideal potential expression of something. To see the cup as half full and to strive towards that ideal with optimism is to have an Aquarius outlook. To summarize, Aquarius helps us to see the most ideal expression of everything in life. Our ideal consciousness or perception, an ideal way we go about our lives, an ideal way we interact with the world and other living beings, and an ideal expression of what possibilities exist in the world. This idealism lends towards optimistic attitude and power towards innovation, happiness, progressive thinking, and all life endeavors.

Ketu’s alignment with Aquarius is highly potent and is considered an auspicious shift that will encourage rapid and unpredictable spiritual transformation. Ketu, a force which is constantly aligning us to our highest spiritual frequency is traveling in Aquarius which focuses on progressive consciousness, innovation and alignment towards idealism and optimism. This shift will cause Ketu to embody and empower Aquarius type vibrations which means one of the primary transformations that is going on is from the place of the Consciousness. Through Aquarius, Ketu is working to align our individual consciousness with that of a universal consciousness in a very potent spiritual way. This vibration means that Ketu Aquarius is encouraging more unity and harmony in Consciousness, in certain groups in which certain frequencies are aligning. That means progressive consciousness ideals will be aligning and these groups and will be expanding in their expression.

This particular concept can be seen playing out in our political race for President in which a very powerful ideal republic consciousness is aligning around Donald trump. Also a very unique rebellious ideal democratic consciousness is aligning around Bernie Sanders. Even Hillary Clinton, representing the middle road, a more conservative democrat, is having an alignment of consciousness around her. This is a very significant energy in which individual consciousnesses are aligning towards the most ideal universal group consciousness. This is hinting at the powerful aligning transforming, reorienting energy of Ketu combining with the optimistic, ideal, and consciousness provoking energy of Aquarius.

Idealism & Optimism 
Another of the extremely potent karmas that comes out of this combination is that there is a very powerful reorientation and reorganization towards idealism and optimism, especially as it applies to our spiritual path and our journey towards Moksha. This means that where we have strayed away from optimism and idealism, strayed away from viewing the glass as half full, strayed away from believing in the ideal in whichever way presents in our lives, that Ketu and Aquarius are working together to align us with that optimism and ideal. This will not only encourage us to see optimism and idealism in all areas of our life, but to transform and align with that optimism and ideal. We will be able to transform and align our lives with our new evolving progressive consciousness. We will be able to transform and align our lives with all ideals we believe in and work towards those ideals in a very optimistic way.

One of the things Ketu would be known to do as relates to this period would be to place certain key spiritual obstacles in our path in areas of our lives that are preventing us from our ideal expression, that our preventing us from alignment with our consciousness, the universal consciousness, and that are preventing us from being optimistic. In overcoming and working through these profound spiritual obstacles Ketu might will align us with our path towards Moksha as relates to our consciousness, and will align us towards believing in, and striving for the ideal. This is a time of ideal transformation, towards ideal expressions in individual lives, as well as transformation as to what is truly ideal for our path towards liberation, our path towards enlightenment, and our path towards Moksha, both in terms of preparation for transformation when the soul leaves the body, as well of glimpses of enlightenment, samadhi, or liberation we can still experience while empowered in our physical form. This divine Ketu Aquarius vibration is encouraging ideal transformation, both in the subject, objective, and collective sense. May we honor this ideal transformation, and continue to honor that divine Ketu Aquarius vibration which aligns us towards our ideal optimal expression in our path towards Moksha.

Ketu Mantra

In order to honor Ketu it is favorable to perform Ketu Mantra. It is most auspicious to perform this mantra at sunset on Tuesday. It is traditional to read the whole mantra three times, then repeat the seed sound (AUM KRAAM KREEM KRAUM SAH KETAVE NAMAH) 108 Times. Please find translation and transliteration here, as well as video with performing of Mantra to help with pronunciation. Ketu enjoys multi colored and striped items, as well as the gem Cats Eye Chrysoberyl.

Mercury Enters Debilitation in Pisces: The Great Mind-Spirit Debate

The Great Mind-Spirit Debate
Mercury is truly an intelligent and intellectual planet, and from this nature of mercury comes incredible abilities and skill that relate to communication, writing, and speaking. Mercury also rules our intellectual capacity and discriminating capacity called Buddhi, in Sanskrit. Beyond its communicative abilities it also has an incredible ability for calculating, and anything that requires a intellectual or intelligent thought process in general. Therefore, Mercury can be said to rule all aspects of our consciousness which are inherently logical, rational, scientific, and therefore all thinking patterns which come from these aspects.

"The Transition" ...
On Saturday March 19th Mercury left its current residence in the sign of Aquarius, and transited into the Jupiter owned sign of Pisces. Based on the ancient Vedic literature it is said that Mercury enters a state of ultimate debilitation when it enters the sign of Pisces. This shift of Mercury into its debilitated state will remain until April 3rd when it leaves Pisces and enters the Mars own sign of Aries. This means several things, on one aspect you will see a conflict between Mercury and Jupiter manifesting and expressing, specifically because of Mercury’s relationship to Pisces which is owned by Jupiter. Additionally, you will also see general debilitated issues with Mercury, and therefore general weakness and Mercury related conflict and illness can arise.

Mercury's Discomfort In Pisces
Some general aspects of how this shift manifests may include an intense thinking or hyperactive thinking in general because of Mercury's discomfort in Pisces. Additionally many of these thoughts can come from a place of worry, nervousness, and fear of failure. One of the surfacing questions might be why is this incredibly intelligent planet Mercury go through such trouble, in connection with Jupiter, and specifically Pisces. The reason is quite metaphysical, mystical, and spiritual. Jupiter, called Guru, or Gurudeva in Sanskrit is honored in Jyotish at the Guru of The God's because of his divine wisdom and his deep knowledge of ancient spiritual wisdom, mantra, and Vedic scripture. In all senses, Jupiter rules the Higher Mind, A.K.A. the “Spiritual Mind”, and also known as the spiritual intuitive mind.

While the moon has strong connotation of intuition, the intuitive nature of the moon comes from emotions, as well as reflective capacity. Jupiter, however has a certain divine type of intuition, a spiritual type of intuition that comes from ancient spiritual wisdom, past lives, the teaching of a Guru, and our highest spiritual self, the guru inside of us. Jupiter's higher wisdom also has the ability to be a channel in which higher wisdom and knowledge in channeled from a divine spiritual source, something that is beyond the mind, something that is beyond logic, and something that is beyond rationale. This is getting at the root of the inherent conflict or issues that arise when Jupiter and Mercury are in deep interaction, because true spiritual wisdom and divine intuition cannot be understood, expressed, or communicated in a consciousness that is coming from logic, rationale, or intellect. It is also true that something that is inherently intellectual, rational, or logical can not be explained from a place of spiritual intuition, or inherent divine wisdom. This conflict of Jupiter and Mercury is particularly exacerbated when Mercury enters the Jupiter sign of Pisces.

Screen Shot 2016-03-19 at 6.47.53 AMPisces - The Water Sign
Pisces is a water sign and relates to the Ayurvedic Dosha Kapha, and so right off the bat you have an elemental disturbance when the water of Pisces mixes with the Primary element of Mercury which is Air, and the Ayurvedic Dosha of Vata. On a metaphysical level Pisces represents a concept of the bridge between the higher spiritual realm and the earth, and generally this energy gravitates towards the higher philosophical and spiritual realms, and unless the Pisces is evolved or mature at a soul level, might neglect the physical realm. While Pisces is highly mystical, intuitive, and deeply engaged and excited by spiritual concepts, it can be disconnected from the earthly consciousness and realm, and can seem detached or disinterested in worldly manners. Mercury however has a very contrary energy to this, it is very much engaged and excited by intellectual, and logical or relational concepts. Additionally, Mercury is very much interested in its social, earthly, and career related connections, and does not inherently resonate with spiritual, philosophical, or mystical concepts.
Some Final Thoughts
In conclusion, the divine intuitive wisdom of Jupiter and particularly Pisces does not resonate with the rational logical intellectual nature of Mercury and therefore will remain in a debilitated state from March 19 to April 3rd. The full implications of this dramatic shift were discussed in detail in this article, particularly referencing the relationship between Jupiter to Mercury, and The relationship between Mercury and the Jupiter owned astrological sign of Pisces. Additionally it is important to mention that because Mercury is in debilitation it will reflect difficult aspects as it relates to Mercury, and these effects can be deemed more malefic or challenging than we fear whenever we hear that Mercury has gone into retrograde, a debilitation is more troubling condition. General affects include issues relating to communication, technology, writing, planning, and organization. More specifically however because of Pisces this energy will result as a serious conflict or debate between the higher spiritual intuitive mind, and the more rational, logical, and intellectual mind.

In results to remediation for this conflict it is best to honor Jupiter and Mercury as separate individual entities and empowering them to their fullest potential individually without confusing their energies, because when we bring our logic or middle mind, and try to bring it into harmony with our spiritual intuitive or higher mind we can face many conflicts including worry, nervousness, and general inclination to try to compartmentalize, communicate, explain, or understand what is inherently beyond all logic, and rational, that which is inherently divine or spiritual or higher wisdom or intuition.

Emphasizing proper devotion and honoring to our higher spiritual self, our inner guru and the higher Wisdom without a need to compartmentalize, intellectualize, or rationalize the nature or content of that spiritual wisdom is highly encouraged during this shift. Especially since the proclivity to compartmentalize and rationalize and bring logic to these higher spiritual truths and intuition is heavy during this time, it is an especially important to employ devotion and honor of our Guru's both our teachers in this lifetime as well as our inner guru in hopes of saving our brain from thinking about, or attempting to understand something that cannot be understood through the middle mind, the logic mind, the rational mind, the Mercury mind. It is highly encouraged during this time period to properly honor and bring balance to these energies by honoring both Mercury and Jupiter on their given day of the week, as unique divine entities that both have their proper time for expression, integration, and manifestation. However it is during this shift of Mercury into Pisces where integration of these two distinct energies is on a universal level, the most challenging.

Saturn and Mars in Scorpio - A Time of Radical Surrender!

A Time of Radical Surrender!
The planet Mars is known in Sanskrit as Kuja which refers to burning coals. This planet’s fiery nature represents all aspects of determination, courage, intensity, and that which we commit our energy too. Mars actually in itself represents pure energy and whenever Mars is involved all of our energy goes towards that area in which mars is involved. Today Mars joined the planet Saturn in the sign of Scorpio which is ruled by Mars. This affect of the shift lasts until September 18 2016 but there is a break from the shift during June 18-July 12 in which Mars we will be back in libra. However, on July 12th Mars will return to its conjunction with Saturn. Saturn is the planet which rules surrender, service, and virtue. There is no true surrender or virtue in this life without spiritual work with Saturn. The conjunction of Mars and Saturn in Scorpio empowers the Mars energy and relates it to Saturn. Thereby, bringing all qualities of Mars which include intensity, fire, determination, energy, support, and physical action to these Saturnal spiritual concepts of virtue, development and surrender. Thereby, through the conjunction of Mars and Saturn in Scorpio the cosmos is wholeheartedly encouraging this Idea of radical surrender as a universal consciousness.

The Divine Demon Rahu - Transits Into Leo

The Divine Demon Rahu 
The Divine Demon Rahu was known for his devout spiritual practice, but was rich in desire for both life, and sensory experience. Through his spiritual practice Rahu gained clarity as to where The Gods were drinking Amrit, the immortal nectar or celestial ambrosia, and saw an opportunity to impose as a God In order to drink the divine beverage. Quickly Surya The Sun and Chandra the moon alerted Vishnu the preserver of the universe of Rahu's convoluted plans. Shortly thereafter Vishnu came down and threw his sharp disc in order to cut Rahu's head off. At the same time that Rahu's head was being cut off he tasted the Amrit and was granted Immortal dominion and empowered as two shadow planets, Rahu representing a top half with no body symbolizing Rahu's manipulative desire for immortality and an unquenchable thirst for the soul experience.

Rahu represents the Moons northern node and it's main purpose is to unveil, expose, or to shadow. Rahu is associated with material/physical purpose, uncovering, foreign locales, and purification as well as toxins. Rahu encourages dynamic innovation, adaptability, earthly success, and investigation of the mystical and unknown. Rahu is said to act similarly to Saturn, and therefore carries its influence to Capricorn and Aquarius. Rahu's Day is Saturday, colors are brown and red-orange, metal is mixed, and gem is Hessonite. Rahu is also very often associated with smoke, occult or mystical practices, and Is remarkably brilliant.

Mystical Rahu Auspiciousness

Shri Rahu Mantra! A Hymn to Rahu!

Posted by Kṣaṇāti Jyotish on Saturday, February 13, 2016


May this mantra bring contentedness, innovation, adaptability, and material prosperity. May this mantra also clarify the path ahead, and may it encourage deep Investigation of the unknown and purification/transformation through that search.

The shadow planet Rahu has recently transitioned from the Mercury sign of Virgo to the Sun sign Leo. This transition has created a huge paradigm shift that will last until August 18 2017. Rahu is a spiritual force which is exotics and unique, an outsider or non traditional force that shrouds, clouds, and confuses. The sign Leo relates to the sign and thereby our inner ego, aspects of leadership, and our ability to manage, lead, and command attention. In this sense the transition of Rahu into Leo takes a very non traditional outside exotic force and allows it come into something very traditional, powerful, and a leader within the society.

This affect can be seen on a microcosmic level in our lives in which our inner leader and mystic are combined and dance during this phase, it also allows for prosperity and achievement from these areas of the occult, mystical, and unknown. We are at risk to be deceived by certain leaders or authorities during this time and there can also be misleading and misrepresentations. Due to the inner mixing of the outsider occult energies and the more traditional leadership energies, this is an incredibly potent time for merging of eastern and western practices, merging and integration of outsider alternative approaches and methodologies, with more conservative or traditional practices. Other aspects of this shift can be seen in our political race, in which dark charisma can cause a great growth in success relating to the candidate Donald trump. Even the other major candidate Bernie sanders is also an outsider bringing his radical and highly powerful and favorable opinions to the general public, and the results and growth of his campaign has been astounding. In some of the examples we have mentioned we are just beginning to touch on the incredible power of the shift of Rahu into Leo and the divine manifestation in which these occult, mystical, and darker aspects of our existence merge with the brilliance, light, and unequal power of the Leo and The Sun.
