Vedic Astrology Lesson 18

Mundane or International Astrology

All seven planets except Jupiter will be in the constellations of Taurus and Scorpio on 15 May 2002. This combination is dangerous for U S, India, Saudi Arabia and Iraq.

All these are in the 12th from U S A' s sign, Gemini and in the 11th from India's Moon Sign, Cancer. Both houses are considered malefic by savants.

Devaluation of the rupee is likely as the planet of finance, Jove, is in the adverse 12th. India will be under Elarata Saturn when Saturn transits Gemini. More emphasis will be laid on disinvestment as a result of the prevailing discontent about the performance of the public sector.

Global recession will continue. U S will be more inveigled in the war against terrorism. Aries rules England ( "London, thou seat of Mars") and England will be under severe economic recession & unemployment as this seven planet configuration occurs in her House of Wealth.

When Jupiter transits Cancer, there will be many political upheavals in India. There were changes of Governments when Jupiter transited Cancer before. Former PM Chandrasekhar quit office & Rajiv Gandhi fell prey to terrorist activities.

US will be affected adversely as all the malefic planets vitiate the 12th House, the house of loss and destruction.

During the months of May, June and July, because of the adverse conjunctions of Mars_Rahu & Saturn_Rahu, the two of the world's largest democracies will be severely affected.

The period of Saturn_Rahu conjunction ( from 05-06-02 to 23-07-02) is very dangerous. It was during the previous Saturn_Rahu conjunction Iraq invaded Kuwait with the U S getting involved in war.

Another country under the grip of Elarata Saturn is Saudi Arabia. After Saturn's ingress into Gemini, there will be political upheavals in this already afflicted nation. In the horoscope of Iraq, the Nodal Axis afflicting the 6/12 positions & the aspect of retrograde Saturn on the Asc & Lunar Asc makes it difficult for the Arab nation to come out of militarism.

We need protection from this…….. Those who can, please chant the Gayatri mantra which is given below, as many times as possible.

Om Bhoo Bhuvah Swah Tat Savithur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yo Na Prachodayath.

By chanting the Gayatri Mantra, we are increasing the positive vibrations in the collective subconscient.
The biblical Reign of the Anti-Christ or the Vedic Kali Yuga is very much dominant with Evil & Sin predominating & Ethics & Morality making a strategic retreat. We have to understand that " everything is a blessing in disguise" and that we have to overcome the Negative with the Positive qualities which are already in us!

Jupiterian Transit of Gemini

A Kakshya is defined as the eightfold division of a Zodiacal Sign. The eight Kakshya rulers are Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon & the Ascendant or Lagna respectively and a planet moves through the eight Kakshyas during transit.

During the present Jupiterian stay in a Lunar Kakshya till 27-04-2002, the world will see major breakthroughs in the field of Medicine as Moon repersents Medicine ( Somena Oushadha ). More and more people will turn to Quantum or Holistic Medicine or other alternate forms of Medicine.

Those having Gemini as their Moon Sign should quit the stock market for the next 18 months, as the North Node is in the adverse 12th House. It is worth speculating in computer stocks, even though the IT industry will not turn around immediately. Watch out for biotech stocks!

All Astrology evolved from Electional Astrology & originated from the Vedas, Scriptures which were never written & which were divinely cognised in higher states of Consciousness.

Astrology & the Fourfold Yoga (The Science of Cosmic Union)

The Fourfold Yoga has been prescribed for Cosmic Union in Oriental Philosophies. They are:

1. Union via Action (Karma Yoga)

2. Union via Psychic Control (Raja Yoga)

3. Union via Universal Love (Bhakthi Yoga)

4. Union via Wisdom (Jnana Yoga)

Union via Action is for the person of active temparament.

Union via Psychic Contro is for the person of adventurous temparament.

Union via Universal Love is for the person of emotional temparament.

Union via Wisdom is for the person of intellectual temparament.

These four paths are not different from one another. They are all part of the Fourfold Yoga.

Certain qualities are to be inculcated in the seeker if he is to achieve the Ultimate Goal.

Prajna has been defined as the discriminative intellect, the intellect which discriminates between the Real & the Unreal, the intellect which discriminates between Being and Non-Being. This quality should be incorporated by the Intellectual Man if he is to progress in the path of Jnana Yoga.

Love is defined as the greatest of all the positive qualities of man. This quality is to be incorporated by the Emotional Man if he is to progress in the field of Bhakthi Yoga.

Control of Mind or Psychic Control through Raja Yoga should be incorporated by the Adventurous Man if he is to progress in the field of Raja Yoga.

Selfless Service should be incorporated by the Active Man if he is to progress in the field of Karma Yoga.

In other words, since the Fourfold Yoga has been prescribed for mankind , all these four great qualities - Selfless service, love, psychic control & the discriminative intellect should be incorporated by the spiritual aspirant to develop in the field of Yoga.

Astrology & Quantum (Holistic) Medicine

Beginning with a Platonic quotation ( "The treatment of the parts should not be attempted without treatment of the entirety"), Ralf Damwerth writes that Holistic Medicine emphasises Prevention. " To prevent disease is an important matter in Holistic Medicine. It advocates healthy food & good diet, physical exercises and, in general, a natural & ecological life-style.

Concerning prevention of disease, we can learn a lot from Asian cultures. Hatha Yoga, for example, is a brilliant system of maintaining the body & detecting any dysfunctions very early."
