Astrology: Full Moon T-Square on 12th January 2017

Hi all….in case you are all wondering about this great big T-square in the sky.. here are the details . Full moon at 11.34am GMT (in Moon’s own sign of Cancer, with Sun in opposite sign..Capricorn). Add to this the planet Jupiter in Libra that is squaring The Sun and squaring The Moon.. (in fact the full moon occurs after the squares have culminated)..

Normally the day/ night before the full moon is quite intense and magical for many people.. a case of the personal `cauldron reaching boil’ ..energies rising to the surface.. culminating etc.. And as it’s actually an opposition (Sun opposing Moon *is* what produces the Full moon after all)…energies are pulling us in opposite directions.. (It’s why full moons are said to bring out the crazy side of things!)

Add to that the effect of the 2nd biggest stellar object of the Solar system – Jupiter – forming squares which create a lot of dynamic energies… (following oppositions, squares are the 2nd most stressful aspect any 2 planets can form!).. you can see why the last 24 hours and indeed the hours leading upto this T-square is being highly tense, dynamic, stressful and probably creative and productive too ūüôā

By tomorrow evening (thursday evening) though the moon may seem bright and full in the sky, the `energies’ of this T-square will be slowly reducing..

Signs deeply affected:
Leo (ruled by Sun), Cancer (ruled by moon), Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter), Capricorn (Sun is here now), Cancer (double-whammy- moon is here now), Libra (Jupiter is here now).

Of course we are all affected.. because at least 2-3 parts of each of our natal chart will be influenced by these planetary aspects.

Bright Stellar Blessings

AstroGraphics: Sun & Moon enter Sagittarius Today

22nov2014- sun & moon in sagittarius (c) Mani Navasothy

Sun opposes Mars today (8th April’14)

A warning to all Aries, Leos, and Librans in particular…but not exclusive just to them..!

An opposition between Warrior-planet Mars and the all Mighty Sun culminates today by 21:03 hrs gmt ¬†(that’s 22:03hrs British Summer Time). ¬† Mars is in the airy and balance-seeking sign of Libra..and guess where the Sun is? ¬†In Aries..the actual fiery home of Mars!

Immediately you can see what’s going on.. ¬† lots of tension, and aggression.. ¬†! It’s a battle between 2 of the most fiery stellar objects for us Earthlings! And the Sun’s in the home of Mars and Mars is literally on the opposite side of it.. ¬†It’s as if while you are on the other side of the road visiting a friend, another person got into your home and started shouting aggressive remarks at you..! And you can’t get home immediately to ¬†face-off!! ¬†But you are in the company of a friend who’s trying to bring you a bit of harmony and balance. ¬† Just how much of it you’ll heed is up to you!! ¬†It may even be a case that this influence where you are at is actually fanning your flames..than soothing you!

The Sun rules Leo.. ¬†so Leos are going to be affected by this too.. ¬†And as there is a this strong tussle between 2 of the firey planets, and both Aries and Leo are affected, it’s inevitable that by resonance, the other member of the triplet- Sagittarius will also be feeling the heat!

Sagittarians¬†will come under fire in about a week’s time ..facing their own heavy battles! Perhaps this is the fuse being lit!

Fuses often lead to explosions.. ¬†and explosions can either be used to open up blocked paths and caves…or destroy homes and palaces.

The only way to handle an opposition is to reach some level of compromise.. ¬†Don’t give in..and don’t take it all…

Good luck..   !

Planetary transits through Aries – 12th March to 3rd May 2013

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s a quick look at the various planets that are transiting or about to transit through the sign of Aries. ¬†All the planets are always travelling – some slowly, some quite speedily- through the signs.. So this is nothing unusual. Because planets are in fact orbiting around the Sun, from our visual point of view, where ever the Sun tends to go, we see most of the inner planets going too. So when the Sun enters the Sign of Aries, we can expect that either in front or later, the others – Mars, Mercury, Venus – will follow. It so happens, that Uranus is already transiting through Aries..

Horoscope: Planets Through Aries March-May 2013
Horoscope: Planets Through Aries March-May 2013

As the planets transit through Aries, they continue to form aspects with other planets which are in other parts of the sky, and also with one another. It’s like a bunch of¬†influential¬†people travelling together on a tour bus around the country – lot of wheeling and dealing and conversations between them, but also once in a while each of them is going to make calls or contact with their networks outside – and sometimes they hear good things, and other times they get awkward phone calls and have to still deal with issues elsewhere.

Dates of when planets enter and leave Aries

Mars entered Aries on 12th March, and will leave by 20th April (~5 weeks stay).

Sun enters Aries on 20th March and will leave by 20th April (1 month stay).

Venus enters Aries on 22nd March, and will leave by 14th April (3 weeks stay).

Mercury enters Aries on 14th April, and will leave on 2nd May.  (2 weeks stay).

I’ve tabled the transits of these planets and grouped them by the planet that’s passing through Aries, and the interactions (aspects) it’s making with others. ¬† In the 2nd table, I show the same interactions, but in date order..

I’ve given this much importance to Aries – because it’s the first sign of the zodiac, and heralds new initiatives, and also we are just coming into the Time of Aries (as the Sun starts to pass through Aries …for a month). ¬† If time permits, I hope to do the same every month, for each of the signs..(Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and so on..)

Do check THIS specific blog, as I will visit it regularly and be adding more information on each major aspect..(rather than do new posts).

Chart for Spring Equinox 2013

Sagittarians & Geminis take heed: Jupiter Retrograde starts (till 30th Jan’13)

If you are a Sagittarian or a Gemini, this is going to affect you the most!

Tomorrow, Thursday 4th October, around 13:17hrs gmt,  Jupiter Рthe biggest planet in the Solar System Рbegins its retrograde motion!

Jupiter arrived in the sign of Gemini on the 12th June’12, and has been imparting much of its jovial, expansive energies for all Geminians. ¬†But as is normal for all planets every year, Jupiter now starts to go `backwards’ .

Retrograde (planetary backward motion)  explained

(an optical illusion of what we see from planet Earth, when we observe other planets. It’s a bit similar to being in a train and watching another train on the other track…both going forward, but at some point, if your train is going faster, then the other one looks like it’s going backwards. Well, that’s what retrograde motions are. ¬† The planets are not really going backwards. It seems that way.¬†Nevertheless, astrologically, this does influence the people!)

Jupiter’s retrograde duration

Jupiter begins its retrograde on 4th October, and will continue `going backwards’ till 30th January 2013. ¬†That’s a good 4 months!!

For Gemini

This is going to affect Geminis, who will have to take stock of all the exuberant positive expansions they have been undertaking, and review some of the recent changes. It has been like starving for so long, and someone gave you the key to a fabulous kitchen. Gemini’s have been feasting …too fast too much may be. ¬† So some of that may now be creating indigestion. ¬†It’s time to slow down a bit, and deal with the challenges of indulgence. Don’t worry though, nothing difficult will arise.. ¬†you just have to slow and consolidate for the next 4 months.

For Sagittarians  

Jupiter rules the jolly jovial zodiac sign of Sagittarius. So when Jupiter begins a retrograde emotion for the next 4 months, that is going to impact on the Archers – no escaping this!

When Jupiter was in the earthy sign of Taurus for a year or so (part of last year and till 12th June..earlier this year), Sagittarians have been (no doubt) feeling rather grounded, and `forced’ to deal with so many practical things. So when Jupiter entered the air sign of Gemini, it was literally like a breath of fresh air…time to throw away the heavy boots, and skip, bounce and run..or rather get into a frantic phase of wheeling & dealing, cooking enterprises & commerce, beginning to look at ¬†distant horizons..

But now, after about 3+ mont,s it’s time to slow down a bit, and look at some missed side roads – that may well turn out to be leading to other horizons, or pick up things you’ve dropped along the way in your hurry to travel far and fast!

Mars, Mercury & Sun in sagittarius- coming to help

This does not have to be a difficult time for Sagittarians. ¬† In a few days (7th Oct’12) firey planet Mars enters the sign of the Archer and stays till 16th Nov’12. ¬†That’s new energy coming in…as well as initiatives. ¬†And between 29th Oct-13th Oct (and 11th Dec-31st Dec) ..Mercury the cosmic messenger is also in this sign. ¬† And of course, between 22 Nov- 21st Dec, the mighty Sun is coming for the annual power-boost for Sagittarians!

What’s ahead is a brilliant time…Start consolidating.. Mars, Mercury & Sun are coming to help!!

Lunar Occultations of Jupiter

Astrological mine-fields: Pluto & Uranus transits 18th-29th September 2012

Storm warming!

18th September:   Pluto stationary

Pluto (in Capricorn) has been going retrograde and finally stands still (stationary) before beginning to inch forward. This cosmic gere change is going to be intense and jarring. ¬†Smallest things can set people off..into biggest explosions. But as it’s a stationary-direct motion, it’s a brilliant time to do the `re-birth’, assuming people have been going through the `death’ (symbolically) already.. ¬†for Pluto rules death-rebirth and transformations.

19th Sept:  Pluto squares retrograde-Uranus

Okay this is ultra dangerous! ¬†The bit I just said about pluto energy..smallest thing exploring.. ¬† well, this is what provides the fuel..or rather lights the fuse..or both! ¬† ¬†Uranus rules sudden activities, shocks, changes, disruptions..as well as rebellious inclinations. It’s squaring Pluto. ¬† This is predominantly the most disruptive force that can come close to the whole `end of the world’ triggers. Thankfully we are not at war..and no one (to our knowledge) has their finger on nuclear buttons..

 20th Sept:    Mercury squares Uranus    & Mercury opposes Pluto

Well, adding to the volatile mix of the above energies is the impulsive, silver but short tongue or fast-footed Mercury! ¬† Another trigger…mis-communication! Big time.. Only blessing is that mercury is not retrograding.. but it can do plenty of harm..under this double interactions with the other 2. ¬†It’s a day to go on a silent retreat…perhaps? Watch out for the mind playing tricks, or mulling too much on the past…or closing in on so much you feel your head will explode. ¬† (I never write things I haven;t experienced..)

27th sept: Mars Squares Venus.  

Not exactly a walk in the park, even though the heavy weights Pluto & Uranus are not involved. This can hit the heart.  Relationship dynamics.. Sex related matters..  (well, all that pluto transits are still in the air.. especially for the next day!)

29th Sept: Sun opposes Uranus   & Sun squares pluto.

It’s as if the battle comes home! No where to run.. ¬†This is going to hit you, your vitality, health or energies. ¬† Play it well, and resolve issues, and this has the potential to release huge energies within you…which you can tap for going forward. Miss the resolutions, and you may have to wait for the next such opportunity…and getting both together is not going to happen in many years. So be a Lion.. Fight the demons from the dark.. and free your self first..before rescuing the princess from some tower!

Thai Pongal – Harvest Festival of Tamils

Thai Pongal

Happy Thai Pongal.

That’s what Tamils and other Indians who celebrate this festival say to one another at this time.

It’s the same as wishing someone `Happy New Year’ – because for farmers in Indian countries, this is actually a new year. Well, not just for farmers – it is the beginning of the new calendar for Tamils and marks the first day of the new year. ¬†Thai is the name of the first month.

The rituals for Thai Pongal involve people clearing their homes of clutter and old unwanted items (sometimes burning them), sweeping of the whole house and washing the floors (if cement or concrete), then purifying the home with ringing of bells, incense and so on. On the day of Pongal, all household members will rise early, look to the rising Sun and make a prayer, then take a bath / shower (anointing themselves with special water blessed by priest from a nearby temple). All then wear new cloths.¬† The matriarch or lady of the household will cook the special milk-rice in the heart fire, and bring it on a plate to the family altar. Here everyone gathers to offer prayer, songs and worship. Then the rice and other sweet food items are shared, and offered through out the day to any arriving guests. Chewing sugar-cane¬† or sugar-candy is also tradition, as well as giving gifts to all ‚Äď new cloths, religious statues or artefacts, furniture etc. Greeting cards are exchanged between family members, friends, relatives and work colleagues.

Here’s wishing you a fruitful year ahead. May all the seeds you plant be nurtured by the earth and rain, and energised by the Sun..
