Pluto and its effects historically – A vedic insight by Dawn Woodhouse….

In ancient Indian Vedic Astrology we see an added dimension to the zodiac system. The Sun signs depict 12 months, and the monthly movement of the Sun.

The Nakshatra’s, stella constellations or Moon mansions depict the daily motion of the Moon. The Moon moves through one Nakshatra each day, 27 during the course of the month.

Each Nakshatra is 13.20 in length. This goes back to a system prior to the use of sun signs about 3,000 years ago. The constellations are deeply spiritual in meaning, and relate to the Gods, the three gunas or qualities, and our level of spiritual development. When major aspects of planets occur the exact constellational as well as sign position and the placement of its ruler will give the clues as to the real meaning of the event. In Vedic astrology there are 27 asterisms or stars as well as the 12 signs we are familiar with, Aries though to Pisces. They are each 13.20 degrees in length. Like the 12 signs the constellations all have different characteristics, qualities and functions.

In the sign Scorpio, which is the sign ruled by Pluto we find the 4th section (Pada) of the Nakshatra Vishaska, and the whole of Anuradha and Jyeshtu. With the Constellations within Scorpio we see the connection between the transformational nature of Scorpio and the spiritual qualities embodied by that principle. What is apparent is that the deeply transformational nature of Pluto, is very much linked with the nature of the Constellations there, Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyestha, especially Jyesthu which rules Kundalini Shakti, or the power within us that gives realisation, Moksha or second birth. This is the last section of Scorpio, from 16.40 Scorpio until 30.00 where Pluto’s transit gives the most intense effects. The triple opposition of Saturn and Pluto occurs at around 21.00 Scorpio and the August 2002 conjunctions of Ketu and Pluto occurs also at 21.00 Scorpio. The last conjunction of Ketu and Pluto in December 1500, just after the discovery of the USA by Columbus in 1492 occurred at 9.43 Scorpio which is in Anuradha Nakshatra. The effects would be far less intense in terms of spiritual development. Anuradha gives bhakti, Jyesthu gives the transformation. When the constellations within Scorpio are closely related to the transformational nature of Scorpio. True transformation occurs through only self-realisation or kundalini awakening. Pluto’s close association with Scorpio pertains to Pluto’s alchemical or transmutational function. It transmutes lower energy to higher, or transforms a normal human being into a spiritual personality. It gives that quantum leap in consciousness we have all being expecting. But only through cleansing all that is obstructing that process. 8TH HOUSE and SCORPIO Scorpio is the natural 8th house of the Zodiac. Here we see how the 12 houses progress from House 1, Aries, to House 8 Scorpio.

Starting with birth, then at house 8 we meet the house of death. House 1 is the head, House 8 the Pelvis, where the Sacrum bone is that contains the kundalini. This is birth death and resurrection as a spiritual entity. Scorpio is an intense sign, it is feminine, watery and fixed; where in traditional Vedic astrology the serpent Naga is intimately connected with Scorpio. Naga hides in a cavity and surrounds a precious gem. This symbolises the connection with the secret energy of Kundalini. He protects this knowledge and will only permit those who have the spiritual authority to gain this power. Scorpio is also associated with danger and destruction. Here we can see Pluto’s nature in order to understand how this works: Pluto as Destroyer and Redeemer TRANSFORMS and TRANSMUTES. Signifies longevity, death. It signifies all things hidden. It is associated with the Mangala Sutra, which symbolises the chastity of the married lady. Mars is the protector of the married lady. On a deeper level it signifies the chakras and the Kundalini Shakti. We have seen great changes in the spiritual awareness in our society since this time. Pluto brings to light that which is hidden, the association with the underworld is perhaps the depths that Pluto’s powers reach. More than any other planetary force it signifies that depth According to Jatakabharana, the 8th house refers to ‘going across the rivers and things across the rivers and across the seas and oceans, severe difficulties or path through rough mountainous regions or thorough dense forests, weapons and calamities’. Its association with money relates to its rulership of insurance, debts, inheritances, and unearned income. The 8th house also signifies going astray down the wrong, path. Quite easily while people are thinking they on the spiritual path this can be the case, they fail to discern what path they are really on. Moral and dharmic guidance may be lacking in that respect. Therefore the 8th house is a difficult house for some. Yet there is a hidden deeper side to it. This can either alludes to the kundalini, and the spiritual potential of the 8th house, or manifest in external circumstances. Scorpio and the 8th house are associated with death, and Pluto the hidden depth, signifies rebirth.

The death that takes place spiritually through its auspices is the death of all that is negative and impure, all that clouds the pure spirit within. Pluto forces that which is hidden into the light, working as eliminator and as renewer. Pluto would be all five elements, as Pluto is integration. Its works as integrator on the both individual level, where we are integrated with the spirit within, and on the level of society it integrates all religions, races, creeds, politics and societies. To do this it must first remove all that creates obstacles to this end. Therefore Pluto acts as destroyer to all negative forces, all forces of evil, whether within us or without. VISHAKHA 20 Libra to 3.20 Scorpio ruled by Jupiter The star of purpose, also known as Radha. Dieties are Indra and Agni. (fire) It denotes concentrated power, a sense of righteousness and great courage. The aim is to worship, adore and be complete or mature. It reaches all qualities in the universe.

The last quarter in Scorpio, which is ruled by Agni and is posited in Scorpio concerns the intense trials necessary for spiritual transformation. Until that spiritual transformation is reached it creates an intense desire in the form of restlessness and dissatisfaction with existing conditions in life. ANURADHA From 3.20 Scorpio to 16.40 Scorpio, ruled by Saturn and the deity Mitra.

Dharma is the motivational force, and the symbol is the lotus flower. Dharma signifies morals, righteousness and religion. This means that only thought righteousness can the regeneration spiritual forces of nature become available to us. The start of manifestation of Yogi powers, but not complete transmutation from material to spiritual is signified. But here one can start to discover ones true spiritual nature. Saturn signifies the collective humanity. One has to go beyond individuality to start this journey,

Saturn ruling a constellation within the Martian sign of Scorpio suggests severe trials. The power of worship given by this star, the qualities of Mitra, suggesting love, compassion, Bhakti, are the qualities, including dharma needed to come closer to God to start to realise ones spiritual development. The lotus flower is a powerful symbol of spiritual development and unity. This unity can be realised by co-operation and balance in relationships and society without selfishness. Whilst seeking for God is strong, and purification takes place, it does not grant spiritual union just yet. The trials and spiritualization of ones life are a work in progress. This was the star in 1500 that Pluto last joined Ketu in. Jyeshta 16.40 Scorpio to 0.00 Sagittarius. The ruling planet is Mercury and the deity is Indra, the king of Gods. The primal power flowing through this asterism is kundalini. The symbolism is of an earring, which is a round object of protection, and an umbrella showing both worldly and spiritual attainments. This activates the highest qualities within a person. It unveils hidden spiritual knowledge and wisdom. This signifies significant transformation. Indra has the power to rise and conquer and gain courage in battle* (*footnote: quote Dennis Harness the nakshatras) arohana shakti. Worldly success and wealth in this constellation is through supernatural means, poverty is often experienced here otherwise. For those who are searching for spirtuality this has the potential to put the individual on a new path, for those still engrossed in materialism, their rejection of spirituality will lead them towards greater arrogance, pride. But the awakening of kundalini is the spiritual rebirth. Here we see the potential of man to rise up like the phoenix, [Pluto] from the ashes of his former self into a new spiritual being.

Those who do not wish to meet this transformation meet with Pluto’s other power. That of destroyer. Therefore the transit of Pluto in this constellation is the most intense of all, and the aspects it makes here denote far reaching changes for humanity. Ketu is exalted here. Rahu and Ketu and respectively the head and the tail of the same entity and are always directly opposite each other. Their intimate connection with our karma is connected to Rahu’s signification of Kundalini. The kundalini is the one with the power to give self-realisation, and is carried within us in a latent form until activated from birth to birth. Within it all our karmas are there. Therefore in the chart it is often said that Rahu is future karma and the direction one is going in and Ketu shows the past. Rahu can give materialism and Ketu Moksha: being the two ends of the karmic matters. Many astrologers will say its very difficult to predict what exactly will happen in the time periods ruled by the Nodes, (known as Dasa) because they have a very unpredictable nature. Ketu can give things very suddenly and sharply, and acts unexpectedly and is of the nature of fire, and is equated to Mars. Jyeshta itself is ruled by Mercury, this will give intellectual understanding. Mercury has a dual nature, and that’s perhaps related to the nature of Pluto which whilst extremely powerful to transmute ones base nature through the spiritual fire (alchemy associations) can also be extremely destruction to those who cannot be changed. War, the nuclear and biochemical and other threats are therefore quite real possibilities for a humanity not transformed spiritually at this stage. Jyeshta indicates protection from the eldest, this includes temporal and celestial forms of protection is available at this time to humanity. The temporal may be police or benevolent governments who wish to protect the citizens, and the celestial is the protection of the Gods on humanity. Here this year Saturn makes three passes opposite Pluto in Jyeshta, the last aspect occurring in May 2002 and Ketu joins Pluto in Jyestha on 2nd August 2002. Jupiter opposes Neptune in Capricorn on September 11th 2002. This marks an extremely intense period in world affairs.

After Pluto has left Jyestha in 2005 the world is likely to be a much better place. The potential for upliftment and development of humanity has never been so great as at this time. Uranus and Neptune have travelled through Capricorn, the sign of government and the structures in society for some time, and are part of the process of the changes taking place in this respect. SAMADHI or Self-Realisation at the Sahastrara or crown chakra the bliss of thoughtless awareness is experienced, the planet Pluto in astrological terms transmutes all the lower impulses into their spiritual manifestation or destroys the negativity that cannot be transformed. This represents Kalki who incarnates to destroy all that is not pure. This is the function of Pluto. Pluto takes 248 years to orbit the earth and has a highly irregular orbit. Whilst it is normally further away from the Sun than Neptune, for the last 20 years its orbit has gone inside that of Neptune’s, which makes a period of radical spiritual transformation, and shift in consciousness of the masses.

Traditionally Mars has rulership of both Aries and Scorpio. Aries signifies the new birth of the soul, its the first house of the natural zodiac and signifies beginnings. Mars and Aries are both fire element, this element is capable of changing the form of the other elements, earth, air and water. In the Havana ( sacred fire ceremony ), one first gives obeisance to Agni, then to Swaha his spouse] the God of fire, to cleanse and remove, to burn off all that is negative. Mars is seen to destroy old forms so that more highly evolved aspects of the selfhood can take place. This paves the way for Pluto. Whilst Mars changes the form, Pluto’s power of transformation is at a higher octave power: Mars breaks into pieces, whilst Pluto changes the atomic structure. Pluto’s transformation takes the work of Mars one step further, working in a deeper more hidden manner. Pluto is at once the Redeemer, and Destroyer. It works in a subtle way to transmute matter, whether on a physical, psychological or spiritual level. Often equated with alchemy, the changing of base metal to gold, Pluto changes or destroys all that is base and makes gold of us all. It is a rather difficult task of course, and Pluto is necessarily slow moving as a result. Its processes take years, and the more destructive activities are reading apparent. But matter can be resistant to change. Pluto wants to remove all that is negative to let that which is pure shine forth. Sometimes this takes drastic measures, sometimes infinite patience. Pluto forces that which is hidden into the light, working as eliminator and as renewer. Pluto would be all five elements, as Pluto is integration. MEANING OF SOME ASPECTS AND CONFIGURATIONS: PLUTO IN SCORPIO Here Pluto, symbolizing the Redeemer, a planet that has been working in a hidden or underground manner since 1930, now is two-thirds the way through the transformational sign of Scorpio.

Like Scorpio, and the asterisms in Scorpio, Pluto does not give away its secrets easily. In Anuradha, we see that moral behaviour [righteousness] is necessary to take the first steps, and that in Jyeshtu all materialism and gross attachments of the physical, mental and emotions are left behind when one meets with the Kundalini. Here we see the transmutation of Pluto, as She completes the work of Mars started in Aries with the birth of the human being. We have seen great changes in the spiritual awareness in our society since this time. What of the next 4 signs after Scorpio. After Scorpio we meet the 4 signs ruled traditionally by Saturn and Jupiter. Jupiter is known as Guru in Sanskrit. Now Uranus also rules Aquarius, and Saturn Capricorn. Neptune rules Pisces.

Ketu which is the South node of the Moon is assigned rulership of Scorpio. Superficially this is because its qualities are equated with Mars which rules Scorpio, but more subtly Ketu signifies Moksha and detachment from worldly concerns. Ketu is powerful in Scorpio, its exaltation sign. Pluto’s transit through Scorpio signals a point where worldwide conflict and destruction reaches a peak. This is a time when the regenerative powers of Pluto are at its peak, in the sign ruling death, and resurrection. Pluto is cleansing in nature, and all that is evil Pluto has been working to expose and eradicate, and the means to do this will come into being through the agencies of Pluto at this time.

As Pluto progresses into later degrees in Scorpio this will become more intense, as time runs out. Neptune and Uranus look as if they are assisting Pluto in this task, as Neptune is 14 Capricorn, the sign of world governments, its position there, exactly opposite President George W Bush’s Ascendant, suggests he may be the agent of a force to bring new concepts of government into being, due to necessities arising, as economic and political structures fall into chaos. The spirituality of Neptune has to be expressed through practical dealings.

By the time Pluto has left Scorpio finally in 2005-2006 tremendous changes in the world will have taken place. Much evil will be cleansed from the world. We are not as yet seeing the full impact of the events that are now in progress, but the many evils of all our world will be purged in this time. Pluto gives this opportunity. That it remains in Scorpio for 4-5 more years indicates that there will be intense struggles in this period to cleanse the world. Later Pluto will meet Ketu in Scorpio. That being a very deep and spiritual combination, in terms of consciousness, occurring in Scorpio, whatever event takes place externally, which may be sudden which is the nature of Ketu, it will be of an effect to change the consciousness of the world. We are a materialistic world, that has forgotten moral and social responsibilities, most of us are quite happy in our own wealth not to consider the many others suffering, even if we have benefited at their expense in some way. Whilst we may think of starving or tortured people elsewhere we have not been prepared to take the drastic steps necessary to bring the world into balance and remove these problems. We have been happy in our own triviality. We are happy to say our religion is correct and our colour, caste, or class or whatever or our ability is better, and that its therefore not our fault that others suffer. Pluto’s transit is a sign that this lack of awareness is changing. The masses (Saturn) will have to change (Pluto) their awareness (Scorpio) by spiritual means only. (Jyestha). As a result of Pluto’s drastic nature in a very drastic sign Scorpio, some dire situations to necessitate these changes have been created. An evil regime, has used the name of God to justify killing innocent people, and have traded vast amounts Heroin, poisoning people and possibly diamonds to fund this killing. The banks have been quite happy to handle their money, no questions asked. So a lot of things are being destroyed by the Pluto energy in one way or another now.

All over the world there has been injustice and evil people have thrived for some long time now. This is the beginning of the end for them all. Pluto is very powerful in that respect. A struggle is apparent, and until Pluto leaves Scorpio after 2005 the energy will be quite intense in terms of purification of the earths energy, and whatever it takes to do that work. Much will happen on unseen levels as well as seen, spiritual as well as mundane. Pluto is hidden in nature and works secretly and in an unseen manner, Scorpio also has that nature, so that will be how it works. But it will be intense, thorough and effective. PLUTO IN SAGITTARIUS 2005-2020 After the tumultuous last years of travelling through Scorpio Pluto finally reaches Sagittarius on Feb 8th 2005. It retrogrades back into Scorpio and finally leaves in early 2006. Here we see Mars escorting Pluto into Sagittarius, and Saturn retrograde in late Gemini. Again we see the significance of the two agents of transformation working together in the sign which signifies the Guru or teacher.

We can only expect to see some significant transformations relating to spiritual values at this time. This will completely transform religion as we know it. Quoting from the Astrologers Handbook by Sakoian and Acker ‘there will be one world religion based on man’s direct intuitive communion with the One Creator. New spiritual leaders will arise to teach the fundamental laws governing all life in the universe. The new world religion will combine all the highest expressions of the great religions of the past.’ Inescapably Pluto’s final years in Scorpio whilst undoubtable promise to be traumatic, are necessary to clear the world of evil for that which is to come. This heralds a long period of peace and calm where there will be no more war, and the establishment of spirituality on earth.

A new awakening of mans consciousness will take place, and come into being in full force at this time. Events will unfold along this path. PLUTO OPPOSITE SATURN This is occurring across the Scorpio Taurus axis. Pluto 20 Scorpio Saturn 20 Taurus currently in October 2001. The dates the aspect is occurring are on 5th august 2001- 2nd November 2001 -26 May 2002. The is due to the retrograde movement of Saturn, which passed over Pluto in forward motion, then backward, and in May makes the final pass. At the time of the aspect Pluto is in the Star Jyesthu ruling kundalini, and Saturn is in Rohini, the birth star of Sri Krishna. Saturn signifies Sri Krishna (Lord Vishnu), and here is Saturn in the star of Sri Krishna, (both Sri Krishna’s Moon and Ascendant ere in Rohini) staying there for all three passes of the opposition. On the day of the US counterstrike, exalted Moon (signifying the female energy of Mother or Goddess) joined Saturn in Rohini, 12th house from terrorist attack. Meaning it will be the negation of the attack, and will be effective. But the aspects are not easy ones.

Pluto is the unstoppable force or transformation, Saturn is structure and form which offers a resistance to that inevitability. Transformation of the environment. A subtle breakdown of old forms, subtle because it will take place over time. In terms of the current world situation, we can expect that old forms will break down subtly. Behind the dramatic events of war many old conditions will pass away. Saturn in the money side of Taurus suggest that financial structures will undergo a breakdown and transformation at this time. This will may break down materialistic tendencies, and create a transformation. Certainly there will be upheaval and change at this time. The opposition between Saturn in Taurus and Pluto in Scorpio encourages economic change and rebirth. Both these signs are money and economic signs. Taurus relates to economic capacity of nations, banks, material possessions, currency, national trade and food production. Scorpio to debts, tyranny, insurance, taxation, secrets, mining, underground tunnels, death, secret negotiations. So a major aspect between these two signs, will activate the energies of the involved planets to act in these matters, possibility creating economic crises signally a need for major structural changes in these matters. Mass destiny matters of oppression cruelty violence. Pluto will transform at all costs. Saturn is rigid and resists change, and is also the ruler of tapasya or sacrifice. Saturn’s rulership of agriculture, preserved food items, oil and products produced or taken from the earth, grains and factories, suggest these matters may cause problems. It will affect national expenditure, as Saturn is the ruler of national calamities and emergencies. Its likely that crises concerning these natural resources may occur as a result of the three successive oppositions of Pluto and Saturn in Scorpio. The constellation of Rohini also rules oil, petrol and agriculture. Pluto rules the end of things, and the Kali Yuga, age of darkness which came into being after the life of Sri Krishna, and this signal the end of that time. Jyesthu gives divine help. Pluto will give rebirth spiritually.

PLUTO OPPOSITE URANUS This configuration occurs currently, from transiting Pluto to the Natal horoscope of the USA, July 4 1776 chart. 5.30pm. As we shall see from the effect of this aspect, this relates very closely to actual happenings in the USA at this time. This aspects effect coincides with political and social upheaval, a massive and compulsive period of change. Repressive people, or situations can create situations that call for maximum cooperation and unity with others. Clarity towards entrenched attitudes, in order to fix priorities, values and direction is demanded by circumstances. Mass destiny is beset with massive changes, war, violence. Its also an aspect showing extremism and fanaticism. Extreme political. It can also bring economic collapse, and social and economic dislocation as brought about by the changes taking place at this time. If this occurs in an angular position the effects will be very strong. According to the chart about the aspect occurs right on the Ascendant of the USA chart currently. A new path will open up for the future as awareness and insight is gained. Changes in power structures, rooted in the past but emerging suddenly will take place now. The changes can be far reaching in impact. Saturn opposite will bring a careful and well thought out change, using the experience of the past to make the necessary changes. It will give form to original ideas, unusual and sudden responsibilities. It will give some restraint to the force of the changes taking place.


Due to Plutos slow movement around the zodiac this can occur only ever 250 years or so. Pluto take 284 to circumvent the zodiac circle, Ketu in reverse motion takes 18 years. (the nodes do not actually have a physical body as they are calculated mathematically in relationship to the alignment of the Sun, Moon and Earth, they signify our karmic path and cannot be overlooked). The last time that Pluto and Ketu met in Scorpio was in 1500. At the time of the conjunction Moon has only just moved into Taurus. In Krittika the firey star of Kartikeya, and moving in its exaltation position, Moon Lords it over the chart. As ruler of the sign where Mars Jupiter Sun and Mercury are seated, and aspecting Pluto and Ketu, its in a unique position of strength. At the very beginning of a feminine sign, it is also in its old age. As is Mercury interestingly enough. The fact that Mars is the ruler of the Sign Scorpio where Pluto and Ketu (also rulers of Scorpio) are placed and Mercury is the ruler of the Star Jyesthu which runs from 16.40 Scorpio to 30.00 degrees Scorpio, also uniquely gives strength to Moon as the ruler of the sign these planets are placed in. Its old age may give a clue to the fact that the matter is drawing to a close in some manner. Certainly if a planet is in a sign, and the ruler of that sign is exalted that gives strength to the planets concerned. So we have four planets in the Moons sign and its exalted. Using the conjunction as Ascendant, which is after all what we are looking at, from there, the dharma houses or houses of religion, five and nine are Cancer and Pisces. So we find that group of planets in the ninth house of religion and dharma (morals), and its ruler exalted. Jupiter the ruler of fifth exalted in ninth can is an extremely spiritual combination.

Fifth and ninth houses are past and future karmas. The first house ruler Mars is present. Mars is debilitated, but this is cancelled. So this chart has unique repercussions on matters to do with past present and future karmas. This is a big moment in the karmic development of mankind as a result. The exalted ninth and fifth rulers, Moon and Jupiter show the efforts of mother (Moon) and guru (Jupiter) working positively for the development of mankind, the main power of good comes from these two planets, helped by tenth lord Sun. The Sun signifies ruler or King in the planetary cabinet. Tenth house also signifies ruler. Jupiter is teacher, Mars is military commander, Mercury is communications.

The weakness of combust debilitated ascendant lord Mars positioned inbetween friend Sun and worst enemy Mercury shows severe struggle. Mercury being in highest longitude is atmakaraka, and next is Mars, formly a powerful rajayoga again in the house of guru’s, or 9th house (using the conjunction as ascendant). This suggests the cleansing will be quite a trial at this time, extremely powerful spiritual forces are in motion. The Guru is with the King in the house of religion, morals and righteous behaviour. Both are strong, but the struggle is still very much in progress. The problems basically come from the significations of Mars and Mercury locked in battle here.

Mars also rules the 6th house and Mercury the 8th house, both potentially houses of negative energy, so their weakness is not undesirable from that point of view. But Mars as ascendant lord and both as rulers of the sign and star the conjunction occurs points to severe trauma. A very extreme and dire conflict will be in progress at this time. The external manifestation will be a reflection of the inner development. The presence of God in an extremely powerful manner is quite obvious in the chart, but the outcome of the struggle taking place between the forces of good and evil is a little harder. What is of concern is the ruler of Scorpio’s weakness and the weakness of Mercury.

Mercury in the final degree of Cancer is in what is called a Gadanta, or edge of both a sign and constellation. Its can lead to great spiritual development and perhaps signifies that which is negative within us can be transmuted (Pluto) by the positive force of God into a higher manifestation at this time. Neptune also closely opposes the Sun. Sun 16 Cancer, Mars 18 Cancer, Neptune 15 Capricorn. Neptune Sun aspects are associated with a state of consciousness beyond the ego and increased idealism. Sun as tenth ruler of the chart, Mars as first, and Neptune in the sign of government suggests that increased idealism and attempts to put spiritual principles into practice in Government may be an important positive development now. Yet the conflict and opposition to this is also shown. A major spiritual transformation on a worldwide level for humanity through a great teacher is clearly shown. On September 11 Jupiter at 14 Cancer opposed Neptune at 14 Capricorn. Venus and Mercury were in Libra. This very much looks like an aspect of universal love working through world government (Neptune in Capricorn). This follows quickly on the tail of the Ketu Pluto aspect, suggesting an intense spiritualising force in progress. Interestingly this falls exactly on the ascendant of President Bush, 14 Cancer, suggesting he will be involved in this in some pivotal way.

PLUTO CONJUNCT KETU 11.03 Saggitarius

Pluto conjunct Ketu at 11.03 Sagittarius. January 4, the year 30 AD time of Cruxification and Resurrection of Christ. Sun 16.06 Capricorn Moon/Saturn Moon 25.56 Taurus Mars/Rahu Mars 11.06 Scorpio Saturn/Moon Mercury 26.37 Sagg Venus/Ketu Venus 23.57 Capricorn Mars/Mars Jupiter 5.33 Pisces Saturn/Saturn Saturn 8.13 Gemini Rahu/Rahu Rahu 11.03 Gemini Rahu/Saturn Ketu 11.03 Sagg Ketu/Saturn Uranus 9.42 Leo Ketu/Saturn Neptune 24.12 Capricorn Mars/Rahu Pluto 11.03 Sagg Ketu/Saturn At the moment of a major conjunction, the whole chart has to be seen in order to ascertain the impact and significance of the event.

Pluto’s irregular orbit or 284 years, sometimes taking 12 years in a sign, sometimes 30, means there is limited opportunity for certain aspects. Rahu and Ketu in all probability will each meet Pluto once in each sign as they make a round of the zodiac, ie 18 years. Saturn takes 28, Jupiter 12, Uranus 84 and Neptune ”’160ish 160, Mars 2. Sun, Mercury and Venus take a year, Moon 27 days. So probabilities of particular patterns occurring become more and more remote. There are 27 constellations, and these are sub-divided into 256 sub-sections (sub-rulers). Therefore there may be one opportunity every 284 years for Pluto to meet Ketu in a particular sign, 284 (Pluto’s ) divide by 18 (Ketu’s orbit) = 15.7. So they will meet 16 times in that 284 year period, 1.3 times in each sign.

Sometimes missing a sign, and twice in another. Once in each constellation is mathematically possible every 570 years, and so on. Saturn and Pluto will meet ten times. Uranus and Pluto can only meet every 286 years for example. So to meet in any particular sign mathematically can only happen every 3432 years. Hopefully you are beginning to get a sense of probabilities here. So for certain significant combinations, they occur rarely in a particular place. Next we see the chart, the sign and constellation rulers of the particular combination we are looking at. Then we see all the other planets, particularly the Sun and Moon on the day in question. This chart has the Ketu-Pluto combination in the constellation of Mula, ruled by Ketu in the sign of Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, sub-lord Saturn.

That combination alone will make you suck in your breath. The signs ruled by Jupiter are both (Sagittarius and Pisces) extremely significant in terms of religion; Sagittarius is more about codes of behaviour and morality and Pisces transcendence (Neptune association). So here is Pluto the transmuter of consciousness with the Moksha significator, in the constellation of Mula. This asterism’s significance is relevant here, because that is where the conjuction is posited, and its means is therefore part and parcel of the meaning of what energy is released here.

Mula means root, the foundation or lowest part of anything. Everything else grows from that. Mula signifies the end of materialism and the start on the path to spirituality. It has the power to inflict pain, and sets the path towards God. Its ruled by Nirriti, the Goddess of destruction, who has the power to ruin and destroy. It gives onerous responsibilities, losses and some hardship that must be borne to carry out a mission. Past Karma is all eradicated here. The elephants tail or trunk is the symbol, signifying the end of one phase and the beginning of another.

Christ said he was the Alpha and the Omega. The beginning and the end, the beginning is the root, so this constellation signifies the beginning or root. The act of compassion to sacrifice himself to remove the sins (karmas) of others is seen very much by this conjunction at this time. The amount of compassion is seen by the Sun with Neptune Venus, the act of sacrifice is seen by the Ketu Pluto conjunction in Mula. This act was to open the gateway to show us the way to overcome the continuing wheel of karma. Saturn, the sub-ruler of the conjunction, signifies tapasya, detachment and sacrifice. Its an extremely powerfully significant combination. Sun-Venus-Neptune are joined in earthy Capricorn, in a trinal relationship to Moon exalted in Taurus. The Sun is fire element, the rest at watery in nature, but with the exception of the Sun, which is in the constellation of the watery Moon, they are all posited in fiery constellations: Moon Krittika belonging to Mars, and Venus Neptune Dhanista, also Mars ruled. This signifies the burning off or removal of earth element by fire element. Furthermore to confirm that the eventual outcome of results are seen in Navamsa chart; watery Venus Jupiter Neptune Moon are together in the fiery sign of Leo in the Navamsa. Sun-Venus- Neptune and Venus-Jupiter-Neptune-Moon combinations are strongly associated with universal love, compassion, transcending the boundaries of self in a loving desire to embrace humanity and supreme sacrifice. Mars is in the twelfth house signifying apart from Moksha and sacrifice it rules one next life after departing this life. Whether one will go to heaven or hell. So all these planets are ruled by fiery Mars ruling 5 and 12 in Scorpio in the 12th house. The twelfth house is where the soul becomes purified and the ego is transcended. Sun Jupiter and Ketu are spiritual planets, whereby Moon Venus and Rahu represent materialism. Here Mars, signifying fire, is the star ruler of all these watery planets with material associations, in the house from the conjunction signifying overcoming ego, karma, materialism on the journey towards God.. The symbology can further be seen by seeing the houses four, eight, and twelve from the point of view that four shows the previous life, eight shows the time of death, twelve shows the next life or afterlife. The fourth house from the conjunction (Pluto/Ketu) is extremely powerful with the Jupiter there symbolizing universal teacher in Pisces. The eight ruler Moon is exalted. And Mars in the 12th ruling it. All powerful. From Moon the fourth ruler is Sun strongly placed in ninth, powerful previous birth.

The time of death is show by the conjunction the chart is drawn up for between Ketu and Pluto, showing spiritual transcendence and transformation in the eighth from the Moon. A more potent symbol signifying rising from the dead would be difficult to find. The removal of earth element by an act of compassion is clearly seen. The truth of the event is difficult to deny in the chart. CONCLUSION Pluto as we have seen shows remarkable and far reaching changes are now in progress. Taking 248 to circumvent the Zodiac, or constellations, as it orbits the Sun, in its eccentric orbit, Pluto’s passage marks great changes in humanity as a whole. The cleansing process will be intense, require sacrifice, bringing to the surface extremes of good and evil.

Drastic upheavals will occur as we are transmuted into the next level of consciousness. All hate, lust, greed, insincerity, pride has to be transmuted to pure love and compassion. The only way humanity can go on is with love and compassion for one another, as this is the only way we can understand each other. Otherwise there will always be war and hate and conflict. Pluto at this time clearly signals this is about to change. If it cannot be accomplished we will destroy ourselves, Pluto is uncompromising. Pluto also clearly signifies God is at work perhaps as yet unseen by most people.

In-house Violence Exposure Today; Aggressive Behaviour Tomorrow


Read more about In-house Violence Exposure Today; Aggressive Behaviour Tomorrow…

Violence“People may think children that young are passive and unaware, but they pay attention to what’s happening around them,” – Megan Holmes, reporter from Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry

A study was conducted to see the effect of early exposure to domestic violence and its impact on the development of children social behaviour. Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) exposure has the consequences on young children’s later aggressive behaviour. Millions of children are witnessing such domestic violence each year according to National Center for Children Exposed to Violence.

In-house Violence Exposure Today; Aggressive Behaviour TomorrowNSCAW surveyed children from ages 3 to 5, 107 were exposed to IPV in their first three years but never again, compared to 339 children who were never exposed. Analysis of behaviour shows that there was no behaviour difference between those who witnessed and who did not. But for such exposure to violence increases the aggression behaviour of children once reaching school age. And that the more exposure the children have, the higher the aggression behaviour became.

Meanwhile, children never exposed to IPV gradually decreased in aggression. Opportunity between ages 3 and 5 is still open to at least help them socialize and learn the right behaviour. Playing and art therapies can help them relieve the foul play they witnessed. Identifying risk and protective measures can lessen the number of early aggression behaviour.

Psychology Behind How We Eat Food


Psychology Behind How We Eat FoodWhat affects your diet? Is it just what you eat or also on how you eat, the choice of utensil you use. What can influence the taste of food you eat? Coined as new frontier of medicine known as environmental psychology, basically accepting that environment affects our sensory perception whether touch, sight, sound and taste.

A recent study shows that tableware affects our perception with food we eat. The experiment was designed to investigate the factors how the taste of food is affected, whether it’s on human body reaction or the wares used. Considered were the visual and neural properties of the cutlery.

Oxford University conducted research with the colour, properties and size of cutlery. Researchers sampled yoghurt using different spoons. Participants has to rate the taste majority says that yogurt tastes more filling and dense tasting using lightweight spoon compared from heavier plastic spoon. The sampling also found that colour of spoon influence the taste, yoghurt is sweeter when eaten with a light-coloured spoon than eaten off black spoon. Pink yoghurt when on blue spoon, it tastes saltier and not so sweet when on white spoon, factor would be the aesthetic of colour is less inviting. Interestingly, the contrast affected the taste of the food, concluding that less contrast between the food and utensils made the yoghurt sweeter.

Same findings came out with the recent European research if the colour of cup can affect the drink tastes. Afore University and Polytechnic University of Valencia found that chocolate on an orange or cream cup tastes better over white or red cup.

Another has something to do with the size of utensil. In 1856 when the Delboeuf Effect was first documented where in most people perceive that the dark circle in the middle is bigger than of the other, but the truth is they are in the same size. Same as for long time we’ve known that on bigger plate we eat more, especially with children.

Apparently, it shows that the colour, size, aesthetics and properties of cutlery have impact with our food taste. These results show the complexity of perceiving tastes than just spoon preference.

On the other hand, “this may be used to help control eating patterns, portion size or salt amount added to food,” coined Dr. Vanessa Harrar, lead author of the study.

People may even have better food choices with the colour associated on advertisements. A good thought to losing weight too. This is the toughest thing we can do for our body physically and psychology.

Astrology and Fertility


astrology-and-pregnancyMany women are interested in the effects of the Moon on their monthly cycle. We are again presenting a piece on Fertility and astrology for you…. Don’t let your Moon phase you, especially when it comes to gaining an insight into your sexual and reproductive cycles. Astrologer Dadhichi Toth looks at fertility and its connection to Astrology. Pregnancy!

The word will either melt your heart or terrify the living daylights out of you. It all depends on which way you look at it. You’re either ready to give into your body clock’s demands or perhaps continue playing it safe. But how safe is safe’. For a lot of women, the exact time of ovulation and the different stages of the menstrual cycle are intuitively or physically felt by them. Others are not as sensitive and can even find themselves in the awkward position of having to terminate an unwanted pregnancy – all because they weren’t sure how fertile or at what point in their cycle they were. Wouldn’t it be great if there was some way of tuning into your own personal sexual and reproductive cycle’ Imagine knowing beforehand your fertile or safe dates’

Well, astrology has long held that fertility and the Moon both share a 28-day cycle. And it’s not simply a coincidence. Just as farmers have applied their knowledge of lunar phases to the planting of seeds and harvesting of crops, so too can the more lusty seeds of human destiny be sown, keeping in mind your ovulation and lunar rhythm. These bio-lunar cycles have been shown to be highly effective in birth control and family planning. However, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the hard and fast routine of city living. Everyday pressures of work, money and social life increasingly disconnect you from your natural biological rhythms.

The Female Cycle

Your feminine, albeit, primitive cycle is subtly linked to the Moon’s phases and offers an invaluable insight into yourself. This requires a conscious re-connection with what the ancient astrologers called – The Goddess Within. This can empower you and help you better manage your relationships and life generally. This astrological factor is also a vital key to understanding why some women appear to be more fertile, yet at times, even when ovulation occurs and conception is desirable, just don’t fall pregnant. This at first appears to be a mystery. But let’s take a closer look and see whether there is in fact a natural, possibly more astrological association.

Fine tuning your sexuality and fertility by the Moon The period of a lunar cycle is more precisely 29.53 days and this is constant for everyone. You may be born during any of the lunar phases below. The key point is that when the Moon returns to its birth position each month it is called your Lunar Return. This position of the Moon at your birth time is the basis for establishing a personal Lunar calendar. Your own cycle is unique even if you may have your period at the same time as a friend. It’s by finding this initial lunar position that you can begin synchronising your cycle with that of the Moon. Because the cycle follows a regular pattern monthly, it can be seen in advance and utilised to your own benefit. By getting hold of your birth Moon position, it’s relatively easy to check your ovulation cycle against what is happening in the stars.

If you don’t know your Moon position, have your astrologer prepare your Lunar phase map. Just as you’ll observe that pregnancy occurs during a certain point in your cycle, there are points in the lunar cycle that are more “fertile”. There is a general rule of thumb which very simply sums up the issue of fertility and the likelihood of conception ie – that pregnancy is most likely to occur when ovulation and Lunar return coincide. Use this principle as a reliable pointer. It does seem to reflect more likely conception times. So, if you definitely do not want children, hedge your bets and play it safe.

Always assume that even when you don’t ovulate on your Lunar return, you are more likely to conceive. You might ask “I use the pill anyhow and that is 99.9% effective. So why do I need to know all this'”. Well, some women prefer to use alternatives to the Pill which are chemical-hormonal, especially over long periods of time. This allows them to maximise the “contraceptive” efficacy of say, condoms or other contraceptive devices, by preferably being active around the cycle of least fertility!

Pregnancy and sex determination of your child

Even without knowledge of your personal lunar cycle, there are your everyday variety of lunar returns which can be considered, especially if you’re making love in an attempt to fall pregnant. Astrologers have declared that certain times during the cosmic calendar are more favourable than others for producing healthy, intelligent and “lucky” children. Just as you’ll observe pregnancy occurring during certain points in the menstrual cycle, points in the lunar cycle that are more “fertile”.

Broadly speaking, we can divide the Moon’s cycle into four quarters.

The first quarter or New Moon Phase when the Moon coincides with the Sun. Astrologers refer to this New Moon as a period of beginnings and as such this particular phase reflects conception, birth and creativity. This phase of the Moon is the most important one and has marked connections with your own personal ovulation and reproductive processes.

Second quarter or Waxing Phase during the time when it is moving away from conjunction with the Sun and starts to grow in intensity. It is otherwise called a waxing Moon and represents the energy that shapes life forces into form.

Third quarter or Full Moon Phase is when the Moon reaches its maximum size and brilliance. This period symbolises culmination of growth and maturity of life forms in nature.

Fourth Quarter or Waning Phase is the darkening phase where again the Moon approaches the Sun. It is an inward and meditative stage where release and letting go seem to be the key issues being reflected.

First and foremost, a child should be conceived during an act of love, not simply as a result of hot and steamy passion. Conception could ideally take place anywhere between the 4th and 16th day from the commencement of your period.

The 4th, 6th 8th 12th 14th or 16th days, that is, the even dates are said to result in the birth of a male. Alternatively, conception happening on the odd days of the 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th 13th and 15th days result in female births.

The 10th, 12th and 15th and 16th are considered very positive in respect of producing fine children – if that’s what you have in mind. Some eastern traditions are very adamant about avoiding sex for procreative purposes around the Full Moon and eclipses. Children born as a result of these conception times may be adversely affected in terms of physical appearance and their emotional-mental equilibrium.

For a lot of women the cycle is not always 28 days.

* If your cycle is a short cycle the coinciding of the Lunar return and ovulation cycle will usually take place a couple of times a year

* If your cycle is a normal 28-30 day one, your Ovu-lunar peak will not occur quite as often but will repeat for 2 or even three months running.

* If your cycle is around 31-33 days long then you will find that it may take up to two years for your ovu-lunar peak to kick in

* Women with even longer cycles of 34 or 35 days can expect a similar result to their short cycling cousins By knowing your fertile periods and the lunar patterns you can optimise those dates, especially if you want to fall pregnant and don’t want to wait another two years for the next best opportunity.

Permaculture: Sustainable Living by Ed Harrison


Permaculture: Sustainable Living by Ed HarrisonIn the modern world, we face great challenges. The growth of our civilisation has brought us to the brink of ecological crisis, a social structure based on hierarchy and dependency brings increasing conflict and suffering every day, and we are seeing an escalation of a wide variety of health problems. How did we get here?

Before agriculture, humans were nomadic and had a relationship with nature in which they understood that the Earth sustained them. There was no “wild” \ “wilderness”. Nature was not something to be isolated from. It was their home, and they were a functional part of the ecosystem. At some point, over 10,000 years ago by some estimates, people discovered a new kind of relationship with nature.

Some archaeological monuments have been discovered which appear to predate agriculture, which suggests that perhaps people with shared cultural interests, such as spiritual beliefs and a desire to venerate deities, gathered in ever increasing number to attempt ever larger and more time-consuming construction projects. This may have been one of the catalysts for people to settle in one place for long periods of time, and to produce and store a surplus of food. Whatever the reason, cultivating grain in fields allowed them to do this.

With many people provided for who did not have to gather their own food, conditions were ideal for population growth, and the settled communities probably expanded rapidly. This new approach to living had many new and unique challenges as well. Who would control the distribution of the surplus grain? Who would prevent it from being stolen? Here we see the origin of hierarchical class separation. We see our disconnect from nature born in the need to defend the plantation from hungry animals. We also see the potential for famine to appear, as large numbers of settled people become dependent on few sources of food, which may suffer a bad season.

Many, many years later, this model has led us to our current predicament. Civilisation has been an amazing evolutionary journey, but it poses us serious challenges and an absolute need for a shift in trajectory. So what are the solutions?

“All the world’s problems can be solved in a garden.” -Geoff Lawton

Permaculture is a kind of ecological design, and an alternative to traditional agriculture. It has an ethical foundation, valuing care for the Earth and care for people equally. It recognises our fundamental dependence on the health of nature and aims to restores a symbiotic relationship with it. Most importantly, it works.

The core tenets of permaculture are “Care of the Earth”, “Care of the people”, and “Return of surplus” (using surplus produce and waste to maintain the health of the system, thus helping uphold the first two tenets). As well as being an ideology with which to approach nature, it offers tried and proven techniques, based on observation of natural systems, for things such as water conservation, synergistic plant groupings and natural self-balancing of pests. It aims always to maximise efficiency, minimise effort, and practically eliminate unused waste. A sustainable “food forest” can be grown virtually anywhere without the need for compromises such as pesticides and synthetic fertilisers and can be sustained without the need for importing seeds.

Permaculture goes beyond conservation of the environment. It is an approach to environmental transformation and restoration with which we can restore the natural resources we have been depleting. We can live in a way that is constructive, rather than destructive, for biodiversity, and even the atmosphere and climate. By moving towards smaller-scale and more localised food production, we can remove the need for environmentally and financially expensive transportation of goods, and the need for long-term storage and preservatives which degrade the quality of food. By becoming involved with sustaining our local environment, our communities are strengthened and empowered.

We don’t need to see a cataclysmic ‘destruction’ of civilisation for these principles to be enacted, either. Cities offer many presently ignored opportunities, such as high concentrations of nutrient-rich waste. We don’t need new technologies or scientific understanding to pull this off. Nature itself is the most advanced technology on the planet and is equipped to deal with these problems. There is now, with permaculture, renewed recognition and knowledge of how it can be applied.

Many people talk about a shift in consciousness which will transform human society and solve the problems of the modern world. Permaculture must be its first great manifestation. We have waited long enough for something to save us, be it new breakthroughs in science, a messiah or our politicians. The reality is, we are not powerless. There is something any one of us can do, even if on a small-scale, to connect with nature and move this timely revolution along. There is a wealth of information about permaculture online. Nature is, and has, everything we need. She’s been waiting for us to realise it, and to come home.

The Worst Of Times: Astrology And Times of Crisis


Know about The Worst Of Times: Astrology And Times of Crisis…

The Worst Of Times: Astrology And Times of CrisisThere are two kinds of crises that can occur in our lives: those related to our spiritual development, which may mirror the crises in the world around us, and the more mundane variety. The latter may spur the former, but in the meanwhile we must learn to live with whatever we have been given, whether that’s job loss, addiction, or even the death of a loved one. It’s difficult to learn from these situations when we’re in the midst of
them, but self knowledge can help us turn tragedies into our greatest triumphs. As with anything that requires an understanding of ourselves and our lives, astrology can be of help during these difficult times.

The Trials of Unemployment

Job loss can be a crushing blow to the ego, even for the very wealthy. When financial trouble is factored into the equation, unemployment can become overwhelming, spurring feelings of helplessness and self-doubt. Astrology is one way of regaining control.

After being fired, give yourself a short time to react freely – a few days, or a week – and then investigate what astrological influences may have played a part in your departure. (It’s often worthwhile to look at month-long overviews, rather than daily reports, as job loss is often a long while in coming.) Meditate on this information; what does it say
about you, your former workplace, and your prospects? It’s critical to be kind, yet honest, with ourselves. However, don’t be confused if the reports indicate that this should have been a “lucky” period for you – remember that you don’t yet know what the future holds, and your next opportunity might be a step up from your last!

Regularly  considering celestial influences can also be a boon while job-hunting. Clarity during interviews is always a good idea, but it becomes even more important during periods which interfere with communication. Many job offers also come about through luck or coincidence, two easily-influenced  states of being. By keeping yourself primed for serendipity, you might just increase your chances of moving on to the next stage of your
working life.

Struggling With Addiction

Addiction can be devastating, both for the addicted person and the people around them. People with addictions are often resist the realization that they need help to overcome their struggle, and – once again – there can often be debilitating feelings of shame and helplessness on all sides. In this case, the most helpful astrological course may be to have a detailed natal chart drawn up by a professional. Addictions are a lifelong struggle, and many facets of an addictive personality can be unravelled through an understanding of one’s birth chart, shedding insight into how to counteract these traits.

During recovery, daily readings may also aid in the effort, giving warning of potential difficulties and providing a way to chart some of the highs and lows of rehabilitation. However, it does bear saying that addiction, like all illnesses, cannot be helped by astrology alone. Many involve physical dependencies, and healthy withdrawal may require the help of a qualified facility. One Missouri-based alcohol rehabilitation site notes that “The detoxification process washes the alcohol from the body in a measured fashion, thus minimizing the issues of going through alcohol detox too quickly. A medical professional can also administer anti-anxiety medication or painkillers to remove the withdrawal symptoms that spring from detoxification.” For those unsure of where to turn, addiction support lines are available.

Beyond The Pick-Up Line: Practical Astrology For Your Love Life


What’s Beyond The Pick-Up Line: Practical Astrology For Your Love Life means?

Beyond The Pick-Up Line: Practical Astrology For Your Love LifeUsing the power of astrology to predict and understand your love life can be a powerful tool, but too much pop culture scorn has given it the whiff of shame for some people. It’s important to remember that the astrology of love isn’t a “what’s your sign, baby” pick-up line; it’s a sophisticated system which emphasises personal agency and your ability to take control of your own life. To truly be in control of a situation we have to understand it first, and astrology is one way to reach that level of understanding. By delving deeper than the surface compatibility between signs, it’s possible to examine everything from whether a new flame is right for you to why you’re having petty arguments with the love of your life.

Start With Yourself

The Oracle at Delphi said to “know thyself”, and this command is the starting point for any real insight into your love life. Surface astrology is all about generalisations; the key to really making it work is to understand how it applies to one individual: you. Having your birth chart done is a good first step, at which point any reputable astrologer would have explained the significance of every element to you. If nobody did, seek out someone new to speak to about it so that you know what you’re working from. Once you have that grounding, try looking into your life to see the astrological influences working on you. It’s easy to say that you blew up at your partner because of celestial influences, but harder to look at and accept the chain of events those influences caused.

Look Deeper

If you’re here, it’s likely that you’re familiar with the more intricate patterns of astrology which can have deep, though subtle, impacts on your life. These are particularly important when dealing with your love life. The beginning of a relationship hinges on possibility, while established relationships can become unexamined, and both of these states are easily influenced. If someone has just caught your eye, it can be informative to research what the celestial mood of the moment is, as well as its effects on you and your potential new flame. Sometimes the answer to your question is surrounded by blinking lights, but usually it takes a little more digging to understand what should be applied to your current situation. This is also true of examining astrology’s effects on an established relationship, since the status quo can dominate and erase certain signs; if you find yourself saying “but nothing’s different!”, take a deep breath and really consider what’s going on.

Involve Your Partner

Whether or not your partner has shown an interest, it’s possible to enlist their help in using astrology to better both of your lives. Bring any concerns to their attention with an attitude of honesty and openness – this can be frightening, but talking around problems rarely solves anything. Focus on your own perception of their actions, as well as yours, since assigning motives and thoughts can block their opportunity to really examine themselves. If your partner is skeptical about astrology, use whatever approach you think would be best. However, if they’re open to understanding more, consider printing out some information for them; the focus of your discussion should be on the “what”, but the information might help them understand the “why”.

Remember to Stay Grounded

Finally, it’s important to stay grounded in the physical world even when using astrology in your love life. If you or your partner is behaving very erratically, or if the problem is physical, it’s possible that medical intervention may be required to bring things back to normal. Severe personality changes can be a symptom of several disorders, so consider speaking to your loved one about having things checked out if the changes have been extreme. Problems both in and out of the bedroom can also be caused by sexual dysfunction, particularly if you or your partner does not feel safe or comfortable talking about it. If you suspect this may be the case, create an atmosphere of love and acceptance with your partner and give them the opportunity to speak without shame – bodies sometimes fail us, and using sexual dysfunction medication to restore a wonderful love life should be celebrated.

All, the Fractal I by Ed Harrison

All, the Fractal I by Ed HarrisonThroughout the ages, and in the present day, among the wide variety of experiences, literature and cultural beliefs on the subject of spirituality, an idea commonly appears which offers a striking perspective on the nature of our reality: The idea of unity, “oneness”. The idea that we are all connected, that everything in existence is one. It is a foundation of eastern systems of spirituality such as Buddhism, as well as western esoteric traditions such as Hermeticism.Western science is one ongoing attempt to explain the nature of reality, and the most prevalent story it has told of how everything came to be, the ‘big picture’ it has painted in millions of modern minds, begins with the Big Bang. Due to the apparent expansion of our universe, the theory infers that all energy (and matter, which is a configuration of energy) emanated from a single point of origin. This source, containing all the energy of the universe in a timeless and formless state, having infinite density yet no volume, is known as the singularity. According to the theory, space-time itself emanates from this singularity. It exists beyond space and time and is the precondition for the first activity in the universe – the explosive release of energy referred to as the Big Bang. This has some startling implications. What does it mean to be beyond time and space? If the singularity is beyond the limitations of time then we can’t think of it as an event which occurred before or after anything, with a beginning or an end. We are challenged to think of it as eternal, ever-present in the now. Similarly, if the singularity is beyond the limitations of space then we can’t think of it as existing in one location and not another, but are challenged to consider it omnipresent, everywhere at once. Infinite, eternal, omnipresent, the source of everything… These are all characteristics typical of religious descriptions of God. The singularity also exhibits the concept of unity mentioned earlier, as it is the condition in which which everything that exists is together, unified in a formless and timeless state.The gap between a typical scientific conception of the singularity and a spiritual conception of unity hinges on one subject: Consciousness. It has been the inclination of western science to suppose that consciousness is nothing more than an emergent property of brain activity, a by-product of our physiology. On the other hand, a spiritually oriented perspective suggests that consciousness, mind, is primary and fundamental. From this perspective the singularity (the unified all) is itself consciousness, and all it’s emanations, including our universe and everything in it, are essentially expressions of imagination, like thoughts or dreams. From this perspective, there is only one consciousness – the same observer is looking out your eyes as mine – and the experience of limited individual identities is simply a product of what can and cannot be observed and remembered from each unique vantage point in space-time.

Fractal Love

Putting the issue of consciousness aside for a moment, there is a concept in mathematics which can help us understand the way reality unfolds from the singularity. When considering how complexity can arise and grow out of a formless state like the singularity, we may wonder just where that complexity is coming from. A fractal is a shape generated by repeated iterations of a single mathematical formula, which contains infinite complexity. This means that, for instance, you can zoom in forever on any point on the shape and continue to discover more complex detail. Since computers make fractals relatively easy to calculate, you can find many wonderful examples of this on youtube. Because all the complexity is based on a single process, fractals exhibit the quality of ‘self-similarity’, in which the features of the shape repeat on different scales. A simple example of fractality and self-similarity in nature is a tree. The trunk divides into branches. Each branch, resembling the whole tree, divides into smaller branches. Each small branch, resembling the larger branches, and the tree, divides into twigs, which divide into leaves, and even the leaves themselves have a vein structure which resembles the tree structure. So we can see that great complexity can arise from the repetition of a single branching process. The process of the unified singularity dividing into duality, and into further complexity, is just like the process of cell mitosis which leads to the growth of complex organisms. In fact, the idea is that cell mitosis, like every other process by which complexity arises in the universe, is a fractal continuation of a single primordial process.

Manfred Clynes, in his study of ‘sentics’, and other researchers who have taken cues from his work, have indicated a correlation between the emotion of love and the “golden ratio” (a ratio of 1 to Phi, approximately 1.6180339887498948482…). The ratio exhibits (and is the foundation of) perfect fractality, a fact which can be demonstrated when we divide a line at the golden ratio and observe that the ratio between the length of the short and long sections is the same as the ratio between the length of the long section and the whole line. It is interesting to note that plants distribute their branching (for instance the orientation of leaves on a stem) according to the Fibonacci sequence, whose number pairs approach the golden ratio ever more precisely as the numbers get higher. Plants appear to do this because such an arrangement optimizes the sharing of sunlight (minimum overlap\shadow), which hint at Phi’s special and optimum properties. Phi and the Fibonacci sequence appear to be fundamental to the structure of all life.

This “perfect sharing” property of Phi can also be shown when studying wave interference, and it appears that waves with a frequency relationship of Phi produce the minimum possible cancellation (destructive interference) during the interaction of the two waveforms. Researcher Dan Winter proposes that waves in a Phi relationship actually produce constructive interference, meaning their interaction has creative rather than destructive results. It produces a ‘multiplication’ of the waves, which is another interesting analogy to our conception of love. He shows that the ‘perfect sharing’ aspect of the Phi ratio allows structures based on it to perfectly fit\embed within themselves fractally, allowing waves to implosively collapse infinitely, into the singularity. This provides an explanation for the cause and mechanism of gravity, and is the solution to Einstein’s “perfect compression” problem.

He proposes that it is also the cause of consciousness, since the collapse of waves toward the singularity is the nature of the “point” of focus\attention. The singularity is the observer which is receiving the incoming information\waves collapsing into it. He and a number of other researchers have also shown, through EEG and EKG biofeedback, that states of love and bliss produce harmonics at a ratio of Phi in spectrum analyses of those signals, and that Phi relationships between the signals from the heart and brain represent states of optimum emotional coherence. It appears that achieving an emotional and mental state in which we optimize our ‘fractality’ makes us most conscious and most open to connect with our source and our unity with all things.

Just as leaves on a stem arranged in golden ratio angles create the least overlap\shadowing which would block sunlight, we can strive for a kind of fractal optimization of our own state of being, producing the least emotional resistance (fear) and the most openness to connect. This state, in which we fully embrace without resistance, is love. This idea offers a foundational explanation of the spiritual path – the reason why love, acceptance and compassion allow us greater spiritual connectivity and the experience and recognition of unity. It is the reason practices like meditation and yoga, in which we learn to release our mental and physical resistance and tension, are powerful spiritual tools.

A ‘fractal universe’ perspective offers an interesting take on astrology as well. As everything in the universe is fundamentally one, everything we observe in reality is a reflection of ourselves. Being a fractal, the structure repeats on different scales, from the atom, to the cell, to the human body, to the planet, to the solar system, galaxy, and so on, and each is a fractal reflection of the whole and of each other. Rather than thinking of the planets as distant and separate objects which project some kind of influence on us through radiating waves of energy, we are encouraged to think of the solar system as a fractal or symbolic mirror of our own mind and body. By observing the changing relationships and processes occurring among the planets, we can learn something about the processes operating within our mind and body. This concept is expressed in the well-known Hermetic axiom, “As above, so below; as below, so above.”


The Primordial Pulse
What, then, is the fundamental structure, process or characteristic that is being fractally reflected throughout creation? What is the symbolic key to all structure in the universe? The Hindu philosophy ‘Kashmir Shaivism’, also known as Hindu Tantra, speaks of a concept called Spanda. Spanda is described as the original vibration or oscillation which arises from the interplay between the creative and passive polarities of the singularity. If the singularity is consciousness, consider that this consciousness has the ability to perceive as well as exert creative intention or will. Input and output. A repeated oscillation between these two states is like a vibration or sine wave. An eternal tone from which everything emanates, and which everything reflects. Reflections of this oscillation, on different scales, are overlayed to produce all the complexity which exists. An interesting piece of mathematical evidence for this is the Fourier transform, which proves that all complex signals can be produced by overlaying unchanging sine waves of different frequencies and amplitudes. Thus, overlapping reflections of a single oscillation are all that is required to produce any complex form which can exist.In this oscillation, the receptive state in which consciousness perceives is a state of passivity. As it becomes active and exerts creative intention, it is no longer receptive. Like love, the passive and perceptive state is one which embraces without resistance, while the exertion of will is the polar opposite. It is a response to resistance, a kind of rejection of the current state and an action to create change. This input\output duality is reflected in all dualities in creation, including the negative and positive poles of magnetism, femininity and masculinity, darkness and light, imagination and intellect, cooperation and competitivity, implosion and explosion, love and fear, and good and evil. The Big Bang is only half the story, representing the expansive part of the cycle. What we see from the structure of magnetic fields, for instance, is that energy is being both emitted and sucked back into the singularity, in a kind of toroid shape which is perpetually turning inside out.The oscillation plays out on every different scale, so we can expect to see it represented in our lives and in the story of human history as well. While we are in the masculine part of the cycle, experiencing fear and resistance and exerting our will to effect change, great transformation and creation will occur, but eventually, due to our blindness in this state, our lack of perception of our fundamental unity, this transformation will bring about crisis, at which time we turn the corner, cross the horizon threshold, and start turning our trajectory back towards source. We will begin to let go of our resistance and fear, and embrace with love, allowing us to rediscover our spiritual selves and true unity as projections of the one singularity. Perhaps this is the threshold we are passing through right now as a species, and if that is the case, we have glorious times ahead.So, from the fractal perspective we can begin to recognize the fundamental patterns occurring in the world around us and make more sense of what once seemed to be random complexity. We can achieve a much greater understanding of where we are as individuals, and as a species. The most powerful tool we have to understand the world may turn out to be symbolic awareness, which allows us to recognize self-similar patterns in the fractal. Coming to recognize one’s own consciousness to be the single, eternal consciousness which is creating and experiencing all things, is possibly the most powerfully transformative shift in perspective a person can experience. With an eye on our source and our unity with all things, we can let go of our fear of mortality and all the associated self-imposed limitations, and begin once again to truly enjoy the dance of life.

Love and Sexual Secrets Revealed in your Face by Dadhichi Toth


Love and Sexual Secrets Revealed in your Face by Dadhichi Toth…Know more here!

Love and Sexual Secrets Revealed in your Face by Dadhichi TothThe art of face reading is a great way to understand yourself and others. That is what it seems to be all about. Whether you’re in business , a homemaker or even a priest at the local parish church, the name of the game is life and of course, relationship. So often our first impressions about others are dead wrong. We feel so confident that a person is ‘right’ only to find, sometimes within a matter of weeks even, that we were completely off the mark.

Broadly speaking, people fall into four temperamental categories – the intellectual, emotionalphysical and practical. Getting a personality snapshot first by studying the shape of your new friend’s face isn’t really all that difficult. Once you’ve learned a few basics about what face shapes actually reveal about our inner motivations and personalities, you’ll start to become fascinated at the umpteen varieties of humans. Face readers believe that face markings too are our minds’ etching of life experiences on our faces with the passing of time.

If you like the intellectual type they’re recognisable by their thin wiry frame. The face resembles an inverted triangle or pear shape. These types are mentally active, deductive and energetic but may lack stamina and so burn themselves out quickly. Princess Dianna slotted into this category.

The intellectual types must learn the art of pacing themselves to maximise their energy reserves. They may think too much and oscillate in their opinions. In matters of love and sex, the intellectual type is just that. They may rationalise and discuss their feelings and interactions. Because they are communicative by nature, the bedroom may become a forum for many discussions about relationship and what their partners “think” about love. The trick with this type is getting them to transcend the rational process and “feel” the emotion. Somewhere beyond the layers of intellect is a feeling human being. If you’re not into running commentaries or D & M’s during love making stay away from these types.

If your preference is for the emotional type then keep your eye out for the fleshier looking amongst us who are often recognised by their round “moon faces”. He mightn’t look like Schwarzenegger but he’ll definitely be sensual, have a well formed chest, large eyes and thick hair. This type is emotional, sensitive and caring. Their minds are great at absorbing information and they have a great memory. You have to admit for example, that Danny De Vito does have that ” come on – cuddle me look “.

The hearts of the emotional types may rule their heads but in matters of family life and marriage they excel. Even the males in this category will exhibit a certain femininity. That makes them popular with the opposite sex but not necessarily flirtatious. So if this is the type you are attracted to, don’t read too much into it. Moon shaped types are very loyal as a rule and make excellent providers for the family, love their children and are expressive of their feelings. Intuition is often pronounced in their case.

Unless you’re full of boundless energy the sporting fire type or physical temperament may leave you for dead in the bedroom. Better get a trainer right now and build up your stamina. They are usually well built, muscular and energetic. These are the guys that a lot of the younger ladies naturally go for. They are noticed by their thickset physique. They have a distinctly square shaped face and are called ligamentous types ( meaning the muscles and ligaments are developed ).

The fire type is pushy, bold, active, aggressive, ambitious and dominating. You may be intimidated by this type but you will always know where you stand with them. If vanity doesn’t sit well with you, then maybe the fiery muscular type is not for you. They like to feel good about themselves and need a lot of ego boosting to keep them interested… and amenable to any opposing views. Often heated debate is their way of letting off excess steam, which their gym workout may not have succeeded in doing, so doesn’t take the fire and brimstone too personally. Be prepared to take risks with the fire type. They are not only energetic in physical matters but in business and life generally. Nothing stays still with them- so if rigid security is what you’re after, avoid the fire type.

The practical or mesomorphic temperament’s structure is heavy boned with an oblong shaped face. They are persevering, methodical and rather materialistic individuals. There is a tendency to overwork and a striving for perfection in the line of duty. You may be waiting around for this workaholic while he or she chains him/herself to work situations. They are very concerned about material and financial security so thereby gain through commercial careers, banking, investment and property.

If it’s money you’re after, the practical type may have plenty of it. The tendency to pessimism may make the earthy, practical types seem less approachable than they really are. Loosen them up a little and help them savour the joy of living. Rupert Murdoch will tell you all about this tribe.

You’ll need to be highly self-motivated and independent with the mesomorph. They are always working and involved with some business or other. Ambitions may take a front seat with them, leaving a more dependant personality floundering with frustration. They are rigid and adhere to their goals and ambitions, even at the expense of relationships at times. Don’t push. Become a magnet through your own successes and watch the mesomorph gravitate towards you. They love the company of success. Getting involved or at least interested in this partner’s work and motivations is also another way of bonding and enhancing a relationship with this type.

Face readers say that warmth, sensuality and a demonstrative nature can be seen in the face. Most importantly, look to the eyes. Prominent eyes with bright sparkle or glitter are also preferable to small, squinty or shifty eyes which reveal an introverted and secretive nature. In fact the eyes are the most important feature to observe in your close encounters of the lusty kind.

In your search for that perfect person look for eyes that sit firmly whilst gazing steadily. This reflects a solid and persevering nature and a person of stability and forthright disposition. In contrast, a wandering or shifty eye portends a nature given to unsettled and inconsistent habits. Restlessness will be evident and other features supporting your observation and insight, a tendency to dishonesty and unreliability will be marked in this type. In short, this is a person of meagre commitment.

Unevenly set eyes convey an unique meaning. Firstly, the person is capable of seeing things from a different perspective and applying lateral thought processes to resolving problems. These people will analyse your comments and observations with a “left – of – field ” mentality. Often you will be amazed at the impromptu insights that they offer. If you are looking for someone with a flair for shifting paradigms – then here’s your man ( or woman – whichever the case may be ). These people become invaluable assets to a company looking for ingenuity in it’s approach.

If the eyes slant upwards the person is an opportunist – more so if the brows also slant in that direction ( cats eyes look ). Many models like Elle McPherson and Claudia Schiffer possess these eyes. They know how to get what they want. If the opposite ie slanting downwards, the person may be a little self-deprecating and at the mercy of others, never being able to say no.

Princess Dianna and Michael Jackson share a feature of the eyes. They possess floating irises. The whites are visible under the eyes. This indicates an inner turbulence – person at odds with the world. Though spiritual in nature, they are hard to please or understand and have very high expectations of others. Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln also shared these traits.

The whites visible above the irises may indicate some dangerous elements within the personality. The temper may be latent in this type and the nature very forceful. Take a step or two backwards from this person first. Charles Manson exhibited these eyes. Chinese face readers call them wolves eyes.

Also be watchful of people who look drunk even when they haven’t had a single beer. Their eyelids sit very heavily over the eyes. ( And don’t forget – don’t jump to conclusions. They may have had a hard day at the office ) but if the mouth is excessively thick and slightly opened then you have an very highly sexed individual.

Look at how close or widest the eyes are. Ideally, there should be at least one eye width between both eyes. This being the case, you can assume your subject has a balanced judgement and clear view of the world. The closer set the eyes the narrower the opinion and view of the world at large. It may also reflect an overdependence on parental and family structures. These people may need a nudge to develop their own independent lifestyles. Their willpower should be strengthened in the search for their own self-assurance. Youngsters or students displaying eyes of this type certainly need continual encouragement to grow in self-confidence. You will find these types possess little forbearance and tolerance and may crack under trivial matters being blown out of all proportion.

In contrast, the wide set eyed character is far more tolerant and broadminded in perspective. People of this class may present a flagrant disregard for authority and advice. A delicate blend of firmness and love will iron out the initial stresses between you and this type. Offer them alternative choice pathways in their path for the best results. In respect of career choices, these types need room to breathe. Give them plenty of space to explore their creative potential.

Deepest eyes betoken an intense, possessive, yet observant nature. When you look into the deepset eyed person you can be sure that the mind motivating them is idealistic and inspirational. Often writers and creatively driven personalities possess deep-set eyes. They are romantic to the core. You only have to look at Omar Shariff’s or Val Kilmer’s eyes to see the passion and romance oozing out of them. This idealism is tempered after the age of 35 and surprisingly, reveals a more than capable ability in finacial matters. They are of sound judgement, compassionate and serious minded. A philosopher’s face may often also display a deep-set “soul window”. You will need to carefully analyse and balance the other facial features to see whether this type is scattered and impractical. The square or round chin will anchor this type to a more empirical lifestyle.

Besides, a roving and unsteady eye, one incapable of looking at you directly, is an attempt to mask inner intentions. Sometimes though, the shy and discouraged will also reflect a similar eye. The look in these cases is an important factor in discriminating between one or the other.

Through practice the “look” can be ascertained quite easily and can reveal amazingly accurate character snapshots of your subjects.

What does the look entail? Some looks are cold, others endearing, angry, weak or strong. It is the look which overides an otherwise attractive face. Soft, enticing features will be neutralised by a stern and unfeeling eye or a look which is hard and cruel. Always balance your judgement of character by the look in those eyes that present themselves before you.

Be watchful of people who look drunk even when they haven’t had a single beer. Their eyelids sit very heavily over the eyes. ( And remember, don’t jump to conclusions. They may have had a hard day at the office ). A sleepy or drunken look is one that is seen in both men and women. It offers a preview of a personality given to excessive sexual desire, more so if the mouth is excessively thick and slightly opened. Here is a libidinous nature, but one which may be lazy too. Periods of misfortune and despondency are also revealed in this look. Unless you prefer a casual and uncommitted relationship with lots of libidinous activity…next please.

Cold and unflinching eyes with small pupils and sharp eye light may appear cruel. If other features such as a pointed and downward turning nose, sharp angular shaped face and tightly pursed thin lips appear in concert with these eyes, be certain that the individual is indeed cruel – both mentally and even perhaps physically.

The “look” of the eye and its internal expression is something that cannot be taught in words but doesn’t necessarily require years of experience to learn. In fact we more or less instinctively do it when we meet people in varying social or business situations.

The colour of the iris is also an important determinant in your appraisal of character. A deep blue color means that you are in the company of a highly sexed yet gentle and sensitive being. You may have to bridle your passion a while till you delve a little deeper. Light blue eyes suppose an individual who is likely to enjoy flirting with the opposite sex. Are you are a possessive type? Hmmm….then you may prefer a little less involvement with this one.

Deep green eyes are not only highly sexed like their blue eyed cousins but very inventive too – both in practical affairs and matters of the bedroom! You will need a lot of time to understand the spontaneous and sometimes wilful mind of a green eyed person. Men and women of genius often possess this colored eye. You’ll need to sharpen your intellectual skills with these green eyed mind monsters!

Grey eyes reveal a high degree of intelligence and imagination but the sexual passion may be less pronounced in this type as the reasoning may subdue the erotic side of their nature. They are a refined class of people with a fastidious streak.

Black eyes are very rare and when encountered are extremely striking. They are somewhat strong natured individuals and don’t always present their case with what you’d call, finesse. You’d need to toughen up your skin to live or work with a black eyed character. A tumultuous road lay ahead if you opt for a life of black eyed…( fun??.)

The mouth is related to communication, speech and sensual appetites like eating and sex. The lips relate to our ability to nurture others in loving relationships. If the upper lip is considerably thinner than the lower lip, it reveals an inability to reciprocate in relationships. Conversely, a thinner lower lip indicates an overly giving nature.

Lips which are full, round and even convey to you that the person is caring and sensitive. The upper and lower lips in equal distribution reveal a sensual and communicative personality.

If the lips are large it means an expensive and somewhat luxurious taste. But and expressive and generous temperament nonetheless. Often the large mouthed person can be very vocal under pressure, needing to verbalise, sometimes excessively their dissatisfaction and frustration.

Small lips which are also tightly closed indicate a self-centred and mean character. The downward curvature of the lips is an omen pointing to discontent in most matters. You may find it hard to please these types irrespective of what you do or say. Look for upward curved lips which indicate the opposite – someone cordial and optimistic with a sunny disposition.

Narrow lips reveal an unemotional character who lives more or less an internalised life, never able to enjoy the pleasure of sharing intimate feelings.

The groove on the upper lip, below the nose is worth mentioning. It is called the philtrum. If it is clearly marked, deep and long, it augurs well for a strong and healthy sexual appetite. It also has a bearing on the energy levels in general. Flat, weak and unpronounced philtrums are a mark of wanting in life force and drive.

People who are cordial and social with high personal standards usually have strong and fleshy noses. The size of a man’s nose and a woman’s mouth are supposed to be indicators of the size of their…. Well I think you get the picture. Unfortunately it’s not exactly a savoury intro’ asking newly made acquaintances to drop their most personal under attire to verify such researches. The face readers of yore obviously had an interesting time of it and if their accuracy in other areas of life is anything to go by, then maybe, just maybe there’s some validity to the size of the genitalia as well.

The nose is also a wealth indicator and so if you really want someone with dollars then the nose says it all. Aquiline noses reflect strength and business acumen – especially if the nostrils aren’t visible. Thin downward pointing noses indicate a tough cookie, possibly an individual with control issues, especially if the lips are thin as well. This is the commander in chief of your life from here on.

Characteristics like honesty, intelligence and reliability are major attributes that we all seek in business or romantic partnerships. It’s one thing looking for those characteristics in others, but finding them is not always an easy thing. A person who seemingly appears reliable at first may soon exhibit quite the opposite personality traits. How could you have known at the outset? Face reading will immediately offer you valuable information about a would be romantic partner or business associate. You can begin practicing face reading by observing friends, family members and work colleagues. Naturally, very few people fall into “pure” type categories, but more often than not, the predominant shape will be recognisable. Don’t be too hasty in your appraisal and above all, trust your intuition.

And now, before they’ve even told you their star sign you’ve sown ‘em up..….

Lost on Planet Earth


Have you ever lost on Planet Earth?

The Earth is spinning around our Sun at a phenomenal speed. 1467 miles per second to be precise. No wonder most of us are so dizzy and can’t figure out our lives, let alone feel happy about it! Actually, this is not the reason you or I am dizzy at all. You know that, but along with all our challenging life experiences, conditioning and other cultural and social factors we get confused and disillusioned about life. Somehow we find ourselves in a rut and can’t figure out a solution.

We all like to feel as if we have free will and that destiny is something we can engineer for ourselves. Your own experience however proves that this is not the case and that finding happiness is not as easy as you think. If you were to look at your desires, your plans and diary over the past 20 years and honestly ask yourself whether you have arrived at the place you desired to be in your life, would you say “yes this is precisely what I wanted from life and I am exactly where I want to be”? Most likely not! The good news is that there are simple and proven methods for curing your life confusion.

Many years ago when I was growing up used to recall my relatives and family members talking about how fast time was moving. I often heard them complain “Oh dear, doesn’t time fly”. Well now that I’m grown up everyone still says the same thing. Life is too hectic, time seems to be in short supply and age is not only creeping up on us but racing madly towards us like a Mack truck and there’s nothing we can do about it.

This lack of time is one of the major contributing factors to the amount of confusion in our lives. If only we had more time to sit down and work through these issues we might get somewhere and be able to redefine ourselves. If you’re an average person on this spinning planet, life can be puzzling and time is indeed difficult to manage. Later on in the book we will look at ways of handling time more effectively and rather than fighting the fact that we are getting older, more quickly, let’s discuss positive methods of diving into the slipstream of time, moving into the zone and flowing with life rather than beating your head against the brick wall of resistance and inevitability.

It’s amazing the number of people who seem to be ‘lost’ in life. Many seem to think that think being born is an accident and that the stork randomly dropped them off at a location where their parents happened to be at that very moment. Not so!! This is what you might call the ‘No co-incidences department upstairs’ or as Eastern philosophers say – Life’s Merry Go Round of Karma. We’re all here for a reason but is it your experience like most others that you haven’t got a clue why you’re here and what you’re supposed to be doing? And if you are one of the “lucky” people seem to wake up day after day with a smile on their face ready to enjoy their lives because they intuitively understand what they have why would you even be reading this book?

Generally, most of us routinely get up and live the same old same old without any meaningful understanding. Now that is going to stop. Now, you’re ready to really engage with your true purpose and actively seek an understanding of why you are here and what your talents are. You can and will begin to appreciate yourself and fall in love with your life. This will lead to you to a destiny that is in keeping with your true personality and God-given gifts. It’s not hard. You just have to know how to do this. Once you’ve been shown how the process is fun and unfailing. That’s right, it cannot fail!

Most of us live reactively rather than proactively in seeking some worthwhile goal. Running here, there and everywhere becomes a tedious mind numbing routine without any end in sight. Paying bills, meeting family and professional obligations, trying to squeeze in a sliver of pleasure when and where possible is all part of this endless wheel of karma.

Seeking pleasure and avoiding pain is the dual principle of existence. This has also been echoed in all of the major religions. And overindulgence, trying to numb the pain of Monday to Friday robotic lifestyles only creates further frustration and eventually disease. “Dizziness” becomes the norm as our world spins on its axis and human life follows this non-stop path of happiness versus sorrow.

We seek advice and wisdom through psychiatrists, psychologists, astrologers, soothsayers and gurus. We consult well-informed friends who tell us they will show us a technique for stepping off this merry-go-round. Usually, they are just as confused and dizzy as us. Perhaps they have taken up their professions to solve their own problems and don’t really know how to help us. There must be some way to stop all this. And there is.

Actually, before we go any further please, would you mind stepping off the wheel for just one moment? I’m getting dizzy myself watching you go round and round! Before you do anything else, prior to taking another step, wouldn’t it be a good idea to take a minute to step off the wheel, sit down, take a deep breath and quietly re-evaluate who you are, what you truly want and where you’re going?

The job you perform, your friends, your lover or spouse, and even you yourself need to be carefully analysed, honestly, even brutally so, to see whether or not they are in keeping with your true inner needs and life path. The destination of your life should never be an accident. In fact, it isn’t, it’s just that you haven’t acquainted yourself with YOU and the fact that most of your life doesn’t reflect who you are. How can you be in love with a life that is devoid of passion and connectedness to your spirit and your heart’s deeper desires?

Before you embark on any journey whether it be a car, rail or plane trip, don’t you establish first where you’re going? Life is no less a journey and also requires you to figure out where you’ll finally end up. As with most people, you are already on some plane or train travelling to some destination. Is this a mystery trip or what? If possible, get off at the first possible stop and reorient yourself. This is what you must do in the first stage of falling in love with your life. The first two most important actions for a passionate and fulfilling existence are-

1.  Consider who and where you are. If you’re happy with who you are and where you’re headed keep going

2.  If this is not the direction you feel will ultimately lead you to the goal you cherish, stop. Get off the spinning wheel and re-evaluate your life.

Once you stop seeing stars and your head and the world stop spinning from “life vertigo” as I call it, for even just a moment, you will finally be able to collect your thoughts and systematically begin planning your new destiny. This is the only way you can create a life which you are worthy of. Now, stop complaining and let’s get to work. You have a date with your destiny and it’s time to rediscover the magic of being alive and feeling true love. – Dadhichi Toth
