Rāhu, the north node of the Moon, represents an intriguing complex of energies; innovation and ingenuity, on the one hand, while obsession, sometimes even madness, on the other. Learn how to tame the dragon that is Rāhu, our shadow nature.
Discover practical and esoteric remedies for the Moon and your emotional and mental well-being. In this episode, I describe various techniques to uplift the Moon and the mind, including the planets that have the power to take the Moon out of debilitation in Scorpio.
What are the remedies for a weakly placed Sun in the horoscope? Learn ways to strengthen the Sun, either directly by taking some practical steps, or indirectly by strengthening planets which cancel the Sun's debilitation in Libra.
The total solar eclipse on July 2, 2019 opened up the possibility for change, with the possibility of integrating the changes if we are more conscious. However, it could just as easily leave us unable to integrate parts of ourselves and create two types of shadows; the things we get addicted (North Node) and allergic (South Node) to.
Although there are a multitude of reasons someone might seek an astrology reading, it really boils down to just three basic impulses. These are known as the three gunas of Vedic philosophy; tamas, rajas and sattva, and every question you ask in a reading has its basis in one or more of these.
Ketu is seen by many Vedic astrologers to be exalted in Sagittarius. Although Ketu’s conjunction with Saturn in Sagittarius shows other complex dynamics, it is generally tipped in favour of wild abandon and ideological fervour. We must eventually move beyond our points of view to a more objective appraisal, just as Capricorn follows Sagittarius in zodiacal order.
In April 2019, Jupiter stations at 0 degrees of Sidereal Sagittarius, thus remaining at this degree from March 29 until April 23. This is a gap in the zodiac, between Scorpio and Sagittarius; when we prepare for the worst (Scorpio) and hope for the best (Sagittarius) in relation to Brexit.
Jupiter’s station in this gap reflects a breakdown and, as the biggest planet in our solar system, a dip in a sense of hope and optimism, particularly in relation to order and the economy.
