Astrology, Planetary Cycles and Tips for Success

Ways of effectively planning for success

“Super successful people are of the opinion that success is subject to universal laws. Planning and correct execution of those plans is the cornerstone of success.”

What are those laws of success? How can astrology and studying your horoscope help you to achieve your ambitions? Often your plans, resolutions and initiatives fall by the wayside within a few weeks of inception. You’re back to the same old grind, not really achieving anything significant. Consequently, you’re left feeling a little embarrassed, possibly even ashamed. That’s especially so when you see others sticking to their resolutions.

So what’s the secret? Is there even a secret? Why are some people destined for greatness, success and great wealth? The majority seem to be treading water on a daily basis and getting nowhere? What are some techniques that can help you to step up into a new lifestyle and find real success? Astrology has some answers for you.

Looking at your Horoscope for success

career and financeA careful study of your horoscope indicates the lines of least resistance to achieving success. There are several areas in your horoscope which will help you determine such things. The type of career path you are best suited to is easily seen from your birth chart. What you are destined to be is found according to your astrological signature and temperament.

What type of money can I earn?

Will I be rich or remain a salary earner?

Am I suited to business partnerships or entrepreneurial activities?

Does my horoscope show that I will earn great profits from any sort of business venture?

These are the sorts of questions that astrology can answer. But the other question is: If my horoscope shows that I’m fated to have success and loads of money what’s the point of even trying? You’ll be forced by your nature to make efforts, in spite of yourself. You may as well analyze your horoscope to see how to best use the talents you’re naturally endowed with. 

Cycles of the Planets

While most of us are quite familiar with the everyday solar and lunar cycles, we’re generally unaware of the other planetary cycles which determine events in different phases of life. These cycles show the highs and lows in our lives. The Sun determines seasonal changes.


Sun Cycles

Your waking, sleeping hours and timetables are symbolized by the watch you wear. Clocks simply reflect the daily movement of the earth on its own axis. The yearly calendar, of course, represents the solar cycle of 366 days and the movement of the earth around the Sun.


Mercury and Venus Cycles

The movements of Mercury and Venus are fast as they’re never very far from the Sun. They have varying time intervals, more or less similar to that of the Sun. Mercury determines phases in our communication and intellectual capacity. Venus says more about the cycles of your relationships. Both these planets must be looked at to plan your best times for negotiations and business meetings. 


Mars Cycle

marsMars is the primal planet. It represents your basic drives. It takes just under two years to complete its cycle around the Sun. The return of this planet to its fundamental position in your horoscope, that is where it was that birth, shows a whole new lift in the physical drive, energy, vitality and a determined effort to recommence your wotk with renewed efforts.


Jupiter Cycle

Jupiter, the first outer planet after Mars takes about twelve years to travel around the Sun and return to its birth position in your horoscope. This means it spends around one year in each of the twelve signs of the zodiac completing one circuit. With Jupiter, we see fractions of that twelve-year cycle, as with the other planets, indicating stresses and /or easy points in life’s journey.

When Jupiter returns to its base position it indicates a fruitful period of expansion, spiritual awareness and the ability to achieve success. Opportunities usually present themselves at this time. The positive aspects of Jupiter to key planets also indicate times of success and good fortune.

Saturn Cycle

Saturn, the principle of limitation and time, as well as suffering, takes between 28 and 30 years to travel around the Sun. Many of you have heard of the term Saturn’s Return. This planetary cycle clearly shows when it’s going to cause problems and challenges. If for example, Saturn is transiting the second house from the ascendant or Moon financial difficulties are be expected.

Separation from family and greater difficulty in communicating and earning is noted. If however, Jupiter, happens to be transiting your second house at the same time this will turn out to be a period of expansion.  Expect an increase in income and success. 

Some systems of Eastern astrology say the second house is also linked to your family. It will, therefore, signify the birth of children and improvements within the family circle. There will be good news such as engagements or marriage.

Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Nodal Cycles

The trans-personal planets such as Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, along with the North and South Node are usually used to determine generational influences. They also indicate important transits and events in your horoscope. Your personal calendar using these longer-range cycles indicates significant milestones in life. Note them and keep a record for yourself.


Take the half cycle of Uranus. The half-cycle is 42 years and usually coincides with what most of us call a midlife crisis. Unless these planets are closely linked to personal points in your horoscope you won’t easily recognize the impact on your life. Needless to say, these planets do have a subtle but also very profound influence.

026-plutoYou should incorporate these cycles into your calendar and life planning. Generally, however, the outer planets like Neptune and Pluto take hundreds of years to complete one cycle. For this reason, they’re used to study the development of humanity as a whole rather than individuals.

Other Systems of Astrological Forecasting

In astrology, there are many systems of forecasting. Both Western and Eastern systems have their own unique wisdom to impart. Astrologers take the transits of the planets in terms of their influence on the natal positions of the planets.

They also look at the relationship of planets to other transiting planets. This is very effective and offers accurate timing of when events are likely to occur. It helps you pinpoint those ‘success crescendos’. You can also see when you’re likely to find yourself in a lull.

There are also primary and secondary progressions which are regarded as symbolic methods of forecasting. Divisions of the year such as the movement of the Sun in its solar arc of 1° are used to indicate one year of life. There are other measures which many astrologers have experimented with.

Vedic Astrology Cycles

In the Hindu system of astrology the calendar and forecasting method is based on the lunar position. This relates to the 27 stars and which one the Moon is located in at birth. By finding the ruling planet of the Star, the sequence of planets is allotted different intervals of rulership.

The Sun is given six years, the Moon ten years, Mars seven years, Mercury seventeen years, Jupiter sixteen years, Venus twenty years and Saturn nineteen years. Within these intervals, each planet is further allotted a sub-period, sub-sub period etc. This can be divided down to the interval of a breath. This is called prana dasha. For practical purposes, it’s highly unlikely you’d need to divide time to those very minute intervals.

In Vedic astrology, the transit of Saturn is extremely important. Its transit from the lunar position of the birth chart is given great consideration. The 7 ½ year cycle is called Sadesati. This includes the transit of Saturn through your 12th lunar house, your lunar house and 2nd house from the Moon. This is considered a very challenging cycle. It’s dependent on many other factors in your horoscope.

Studying Success from your Horoscope Makes Good Sense

Indeed, having your horoscope cast and studying the transits and planetary cycles is a great tool to determine success. If you want to gain an insight into what likely trends are occurring look at your horoscope. Understanding what’s going to happen in future makes good sense. It can help you effectively plan your life for success and any ups or downs.

Plan Strategy Target Aim Success Concept

Knowing when times will be lean affords you the opportunity to buffer and prepare for periods of adversity.

Life is always a series of highs and lows, wins and losses, ups and downs. It’s cyclic and everyone knows that. Any intelligent person, irrespective of their station in life understands this through personal experience. It’s extremely useful to incorporate this understanding into your life and work schedule.

Professionally, it’s useful to understand the high and low cycles. Knowing this, if you’re in a lazy cycle, take your holidays when you’re least efficient. If you’re at your peak and most productive, why would you take holidays? This can be applied to relationships as well.

Success isn’t only related to work and money. You want to be successful and happy in your love life to right? So many people work hard to find a soulmate without an understanding of the current or upcoming cycles.

Saturn in an adverse position to Venus trashes love. Knowing this why wouldn’t you redirect your energies into more constructive activities. Waiting for positive planetary love aspects improves relationships.

Resisting these cycles only produces more pain. An understanding of them creates a greater sense of freedom and autonomy. Some say that you’re in the grip of these planets and they have control over what’s happening.  Understanding your planetary transits and cycles gives you the ability to flow more freely with the passage of time. You’ll enjoy life to the fullest planning effectively for less favourable cycles.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer June 21, 2020: Feelings on the Boil

Solar Eclipse in Cancer

NEW Beginning, NEW Feelings, NEW INTERACTIONS BEGIN on June 21 WITH THE STUNNING New Moon / Solar Eclipse in Cancer


How coincidental that many are referring to the current social circumstances as the ‘new normal’. The ‘new normal’ and this solar eclipse coincide. Many people are so frustrated with feelings now reaching boiling point. How we feel and interact with each other is certainly changing now. With Mars and Neptune involved it’s not necessarily for the better.

If you’re looking at these transits purely from the material perspective you’ll miss the deeper point and lesson of the eclipse. What this solar eclipse is telling you is that the way you express your feelings sets the trend for how you will be treated. Karma is a critical aspect of any eclipse as the eclipses always take place on the karmic/nodal axis.

Whenever an eclipse takes place awareness and a new level of perception are needed. Cultivating a harmonious state of understanding in your discussions, activities and relationships spiritualizes those things. Once this happens there’s no concern whether your views or someone else’s are the same or different.

Respect becomes the communication bridge.

This eclipse points to it being one of insightful perception. Cancer being a water sign is extremely intuitive. It’s also a sign of nurturing and transforming yourself. This is primarily done through caring for others. It has to do with new ways of expressing your love and of relating better to others through that love. Remember, love is a verb! The solar eclipse in Cancer signals a new me and a new you!


There are challenging aspects of Mars and Neptune during this eclipse. The changes we wish to make in ourselves shouldn’t be foisted on others. There’s an aggressive component to the Mars energy. Feelings boil over. The fact that Mars has recently passed over Neptune shows its impotence. Neptune is dreamy, otherworldly whereas Mars is an action planet, impulsive. It wants things, and it wants them now!


Given the Mars-Neptune connection, perhaps the more appropriate word should be ‘collision’. A challenging aspect from these two planets to eclipses is never desirable. It represents an intensification of ideals versus ideals. It shows the division between blue and red, left and right, black and white and so on. You might call this a ‘binary eclipse’.


This also describes the social unrest we’ve seen in the United States and other Western countries recently. In the political or mundane/social and cultural world, Mars and Moon’s contact relate to the anger of the masses. The feeling planet being aggravated by Mars shows that reason may be conspicuously absent.


Cancer is a movable sign. The solar eclipse here offers a way out by inviting you to embrace the notion of stabilising emotions rather than expressing them irrationally. Greater tolerance and understanding of others irrespective of their colour or creed underpins the energy. It demands a change of outlook. There’s no necessity to accept or reject any person. Use what life is throwing at you intuitively as a stepping stone to the higher gateways of inner development, peace and unity.


Maintaining presence of mind develops deeper insight into the fluctuating karmic patterns of life.


It endows you with the ability to stabilize your awareness in the midst of changing life conditions, even catastrophic ones such as we’ve been experiencing.

Astrologer’s Overview

Some fascinating facts about the June 21, 2020 Solar Eclipse

June 21 2020 Solar Eclipse

This solar eclipse takes place in a Cardinal sign and therefore all the Cardinal signs will feel its impact very strongly. The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. As Jupiter and Pluto are also currently retrograde in the movable sign of Capricorn immense energies are building to a crescendo. Mercury, Venus and Saturn also are dancing to the retrograde tune.

The hard aspect of Mars to this eclipse can be explosive. It’s during this cycle that self-containment and presence of mind are absolutely necessary.

Taking full control of yourself helps avert disputes and breakups which will be caused by impulsive words, choices and behaviour. The same applies to politicians. They must also exercise greater control during and after the eclipse.

What happens for the rest of 2020 and beyond, rests upon many astrological factors. This eclipse and where it stands in your horoscope can be very revealing for the current and general trends of the year. If it affects your rising or Sun sign you’ll feel the effects upon your physical self, your appearance and ways in which you can become more popular. For the Cardinal signs mentioned above, this will be the case. If it occurs in the seventh house it relates to business partnerships, marital status and changes in your most significant relationships and so on and so forth.

Did you know?

Solar eclipses are seen to have an impact, particularly on the head of state of those countries, the governments, ministers; also top personalities and celebrities. The influence of an eclipse may not be felt immediately, however, if a solar eclipse, the ramifications can last for as many years as is equivalent to the hours of the duration of the eclipse.

The actual effect of the eclipse is best studied from subsequent lunations and transits of the faster moving inner planets to sensitive points. These are determined through the horoscope drawn for the precise time of the eclipse.

Early founding astrologers made the following observations in terms of when those events can be expected:

  • Eclipses falling near the eastern horizon manifest within 4 months
  • Eclipses falling at the Midheaven or apex of the horoscope ie directly above the locality should give their affects between six and eight months after the eclipse and
  • If the eclipse happens to fall near the western horizon the effects will not be felt until from anywhere between 8 to 12 months after the eclipse.
  • This eclipse falls on the date of the solar ingress into Cancer. The ingress is of the four cardinal sign transits which represent the seasons of the year.
  • The eclipse falls very near the polestar which is around 28° of Gemini. The Chinese considered this specific Star to be ‘the great honourable Lord of the heavens ‘. It’s fascinating that just as the Chinese nation is making its move to dominate the world, this important eclipse should be taking place. The star is said to give spiritual powers to the bearer who will be highly respected.

It’s not an easy thing to determine the eclipse effects because for too long astrologers have generalised that an eclipse is a foreboding omen without taking into consideration the aspects, fixed stars and other celestial factors that modulate the energies and frequencies of an eclipse.

More research is necessary to study the very influences of the eclipses but one thing is for certain-historically at least it seems that these solar eclipses do tend to have an impact not only on the general public but on individuals as well.

Remedial Hints for the Solar Eclipse in Cancer for the 12 Zodiac Signs

Did you know that there are remedial measures in astrology and that they can be used to neutralize the influence of negative planetary forces on you? This isn’t for everyone but for those of you interested enough to learn these mysteries handed down to me by my mentors – let me introduce you to some Tantric hints.

ancient tradition of understanding how to work in harmony with the forces of nature and destiny. Turn this phase of stagnation or “bad luck” into good fortune. The eclipse is a perfect time to channel lucky energies to improve your life.

Observe regular fasting on the day of your choice. Depending on which day you choose, the planet ruling that day will be brought under your submission.

  • SUNDAY is ruled by the Sun  ☀ and helps remove disease, improve health and vitality and gives long life.
  • MONDAY is ruled by the Moon 🌙 and fasting on this day will bring your emotions and domestic situations under control.
  • TUESDAY is ruled by Mars ♂ and gives you strength, courage and the ability to win over adversaries.
  • WEDNESDAY is ruled by Mercury ☿ and is an excellent day to improve your intellect, study habits and strengthen your nervous system.
  • THURSDAY is ruled by Jupiter ♃ with fasting on this day uplifting your spiritual vision, giving you deeper insight into yourself. It is generally a luck amplifier.
  • FRIDAY is ruled by Venus ♀ and bringing this planet under control through fasting promises happiness and satisfaction in love and social activities.
  • SATURDAY is ruled by Saturn ♄ and fasting on this day enhances your professional opportunities and skills.

This exercise is one of the keys to turning your luck around, especially around eclipse time.

How this eclipse will affect you and the world?

This solar eclipse will affect your Zodiac star sign in a unique way. This eclipse takes place and is visible across the Asian region. The penumbral shadow gives you a preview of which countries are likely to start feeling the impact of an eclipse. Even now we see the tension is mounting on the India-China border. The eclipse will cut across the Asian region and what impact this area over the coming months and years. Here are some of the other countries that may be affected –

  • The Republic of China chart Pluto is at 27° Gemini 45 minutes. The North node will make a conjunction to this point shortly translating the light of the eclipse to it.
  • North Korea’s -Uranus
  • India independence chart-Mars
  • Midheaven of Kuwait
  • Ascendant of Nigeria
  • Mali Republic-Mars
  • United States chart-Venus
  • The penumbral shadow falls smack bang on Taipei

June 21 2020 Solar Eclipse Map

Mars and Neptune are in close square to this solar eclipse on June 21.

It’s going to bring feelings to the boil, individually and societally.

Now, check this out: The eclipse takes place in the upper part of the Republic of China Chart near the fixed star, The Pole Star. The Chinese had high regard for this star as “the great honourable Lord of the Heavens”.

This eclipse is also an unusual one and is referred to as a Ring of Fire Eclipse. This means that the Moon is at its apogee and a ring will appear around the Sun at the peak of the eclipse. That ring of fire also hints at the militant quality of the eclipse coupled with Mars, the planet of war.

It gives pursuit of aims, and with positive planets, discreetly so. This eclipse, however, casts a shadow of doubt on their integrity. That doubt is already in full swing. Is it a coincidence that China and North Korea, are both in battle mode on the Indian and South Korean borders respectively?

  • Is it a coincidence the eclipse shadow will cut right across Asia, visible in India, China, parts of Africa and Korea ( as well as Australia )?
  • Is it a coincidence the eclipse takes place in the zone of leadership in the China Republic declaration chart?

These sorts of eclipses herald the death or overthrow of leaders in the nations affected by the eclipse, especially if the penumbral shadow is visible in that country, which it will be.

The Sun is the King, so to speak. As such, this eclipse is ominous. Could there be an overthrow of incumbent power or reclamation of the Taipei leadership? Could there possibly be war as Mars as involved? 

On a personal note, this eclipse will affect all of us in different ways. Depending on your Zodiac star sign, the eclipse will take place in one or other of the houses of the Zodiac. There are 12 houses or sectors which make up to 360° circle of the Zodiac.

Take this opportunity to meditate and contemplate under the eclipse. The ancient astrologers believe that the power radiating from an eclipse accelerates your spiritual evolution if you tune with it.

In a nutshell, here are the spheres of life in which this Solar Eclipse all will impact each of the star signs. Further down take a look at the more detailed reading for how this eclipse will radically transform your life!

Family matters may be under a cloud for the time being as you work through what you need give those in your close-knit circle the sort of life they want. But fear may surround you as well and your courage is what’s going to carry you through. If you look back 18 to 20 years ago you will find similar circumstances and planetary influences were affecting you and in fact, this period now will be one in which you can resolve some of those previous karmic obstacles.

You want to stand out during and following this current important total solar eclipse which takes place in your Sun sign. This pattern of behaviour and your personality type is now changing. This, of course, requires adaptation by you and those you live and work with. Initially, you’ll test the water to see whether, for example a new hairstyle, garments or even your words have greater value. How will people react? Well, Cancer, you’ll never really know unless you try. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

This is most definitely a period of experimentation with your relationships (Uranus trines the eclipse) and more importantly how you view yourself. It is self-image that matters the most and how we project that onto the world. This is what happens when the eclipse and the karmic forces of nature bear upon your Sun sign.

Over the next few months, the North node will continue to transit your Sun sign of Gemini ( the preceding sign to yours ). This  results in many radical changes in your life and relationships as a result of carefully analysing your past actions will.

Those things in life we fear are the things we must deal with and eradicate. Under this total solar eclipse, you’ll have to address some of those fears and incidences or circumstances that have weighed heavily upon you throughout your past life. Going back into history is sometimes painful and as the karmic forces of nature impact upon your 12th house of hidden secrets, spirituality and self-analysis, you’ll gradually work through this creating the momentum you need to have a life which is burden free.

Guilt and shame are two of the worst emotions we can feel and if you’ve been weighed down by these feelings over the years you’ll finally have a breakthrough.

But you need to make the effort and put aside the time, and more importantly cast off your judgement and prejudice.

If you’ve had preconceived ideas about all this new age airy-fairy stuff you need to suspend your suspicion and see what happens if you do look deeply into yourself with a view to becoming a more integrated person. This seems to be the focal point of the next year or so. Charity and working with those less privileged may be keys to unraveling some of these inner mysteries.

You have to re-evaluate what defines a friendship and some of you will have found your long-held friendships dissolving before your very eyes. In some cases, you may not even have any idea why this is happening but you’re questioning the motives of anyone and everyone now, including your family.

This sounds like a period of mistrust, fear and dissatisfaction but believe me you can only clear the decks of useless individuals in your life by dealing with these issues fairly and squarely. You mustn’t allow others to take advantage of you and you will certainly be seen to be a little harder, more ruthless in your dealings with others generally, but this is going to spare you considerable suffering in the future.

Part of this process relates to your understanding that self-esteem and self-worth are determined by the type of people you allow into your life. You are making a statement now and will not accept anything less than what you believe you deserve. This is going to shake up your life somewhat and it could even shock those who are closest to you especially when they come under your scrutiny and they don’t live up to the new standards that you are setting for yourself.

With Mars also influencing the eclipse and being in your relationships zone this area of your life will be challenged. You’ll learn lots of economising with your feelings and words. This is a period where you’ll be more reactive and impulsive.


How will this eclipse affect you?

You have an extraordinary spiritual and material shift about to culminate with your relationship planet Mars influencing this important total solar eclipse. The eclipse takes place in your career sector, the most powerful 10th house of your horoscope. How you deal with these energies is up to you but with a little planning and diligent, hard work you’ll achieve something extraordinary over the coming months.

These karmic forces indicate that you’ve already worked consistently hard for some years now and have been waiting patiently for the results. Not that it’s the results you are focused on, but good work, expertise and a refining of your skills which will slowly result in a better reputation with additional income.

This 10th house of your horoscope has to do with the development of your ego. The Moon, the ruler of this house is an integral part of the eclipse. It indicates the importance of this event on your professional activities. New beginnings are seen resulting from a solar eclipse as this celestial event only takes place during the new Moon. It also refers to the development of your character. Having the influence of the shadowy karmic forces on you at this time shows you’ll become more serious about what you want in life.

Your enquiring nature is at the heart of your personality. Some idea may have to be mothballed for a while as you become more attentive to practical and material necessities. If brings your concentration to bear upon what has to be done. You’ll come out the other end with a completely new and improved lifestyle and persona.


How will this eclipse affect you?

This solar eclipse takes place in the Sun sign of Cancer in your ninth house with Mars squaring it. This challenges your beliefs. It brings with it the promise of your past karma with effort. The actions of your past will now meet the promise of your present and future life. Those fruits, depending on those actions, whether good or bad, will be reaped by you now.

You will take an interest in expanding your mind, taking on new forms of education and learning and this doesn’t necessarily mean a university or college degrees but a keen interest in topics which you feel a resonance with. So take this as a period of great learning and expansion.

Foreign affairs, travel and perhaps even moving offshore may be of importance to you at this time. This could be because of your desire to expand so much that you feel a little stifled by the same old environment and cultural interests you’ve had over the years. This may also have to do with Saturn which has been transiting your zone of self-fulfilment and personal happiness.

You are working at overcoming self-limitations. This eclipse is going to help lessen the resistance you’ve been feeling in your life. It’s only through rising above the concept of self-limitation that an expansion of self takes place. You’re passionate about this spiritual adventure and will do so with a sense of discovery and self-improvement.


How will this eclipse affect you?

A huge transformation is about to take place under this total solar eclipse which occurs in your eighth house of rebirth. With Jupiter also transiting your finance sector for the next few months this is going to be an extremely important period of development. Depending on how you handle the elimination of those things that are unnecessary in your life, your financial growth will more or less be accelerated.

This is also a period where you must learn to let go of those habits which are holding you back. Part of this transformative process is to release those habits. With most habits being ingrained, letting go of habit associations will be a big challenge for you. For example, if you’re having a difficult time, reaching for a cigarette or a drink may become a natural reaction and association. By cultivating a keener awareness of those behaviours you’ll break the back of them. You will move through lifeless burdened by these hindrances.

Sexuality is also under the influence of this sector. This powerful Cancer eclipse will bring with its acceleration and amplification of your sexual desires. If this has been a sore point for you, dealing with matters of intimacy it will almost certainly be high on your agenda.

The problem you may have is that you’ll be obstructed by some other person. This is the second half of this equation you must solve. They may not be ready for change, transformation and the necessary process of elimination that goes with growth. You are. This means you may be both out of step with each other. That requires a lot more emotional hard work on yours and their part.


How will this eclipse affect you?

Relationships are going to be of prime importance and the institution of marriage itself will come under the spotlight for those of you born under the sign of the goat. The karmic forces released under this total solar eclipse will force you to re-evaluate your view of this institution and whether or not it suits you-married or not. Those of you currently in relationships will be thinking about alternatives.

You’re trying to get your marriage or your long-term commitments more in line with who you are and what you want in life. For many years you’ve been adapting yourself to the accepted idea of ‘marriage and commitment’ which has been culturally foisted upon you. It’s a period of independent thought. You finally break free of your past and those pre-conditioned mental habits that have been superimposed on you by others.

With Uranus, transiting the fifth house as well, you have excellent opportunities for lifting the quality of your work in these coming months. Approaching work relationships with the spirit of free thought, enquiry and creativity will help solidify those relationships. This ensures your future will be built on a better foundation of collaboration. What you and your associates desire is being determined by this eclipse. Work on more innovative attitudes, that aren’t constrained by your past habits.

As the eclipse takes place in your seventh house it’s all about negotiation and dealing with what others also want. The coming months will almost certainly be a period of adaptation. With the correct perspective, expect a greater luck in your relationships. This comes by accepting that change is inevitable.


How will this eclipse affect you?

This eclipse will impact your working life and the way you manage your day-to-day activities. This is going to be particularly notable in terms of how you and your co-workers agree. Your desire will be to collaborate more easily with a view to increasing profits and further professional opportunities.

Health matters which have been swept under the rug will no longer be able to be ignored and so this is a wake-up call that you need to pay more attention to those things that are impacting you adversely and also can help you turn the corner in terms of your well-being.

You’ll be looking at changing your philosophy of work and although others may look down upon you for this you know in your heart of hearts that it’s time for a big change. Those who have been taking advantage of you will sense the change and may not like what they see because there’s nothing in it for them any longer.

Changes will also be noticed in your domestic environment. Family members have had some measure of emotional control over your feelings lessen their grip now. It’s time to celebrate by making those changes in your life. You know are going to create a difference.


How will this eclipse affect you?

This total solar eclipse will radically shift your awareness and how you think. It gives you a greater understanding of your love life and how to best communicate with your romantic partners. It focuses you on exactly what it is you want to make you happy.

You may have been stuck in a cycle where you’re the one doing all the giving with the other person expecting you to dance to their tune. This is going to stop shortly. You’ll feel empowered by your own self-determination. You’ll be laying down new rules of engagement and those who aren’t prepared to get with the program better get moving pretty quickly. Where is

If you’ve been a little apprehensive about taking risks in life now you’ll be thinking differently. You won’t want to miss vital opportunities that require you to dig deeper for that ‘gambling’ instinct. Something big may pay off. This may be related to love or it may affect you financially. You want some assurance that you can improve your finances. But gambling is never an assurance so tread carefully.

Children also take on greater importance in your life whether yours or not. If you don’t have kids, some of you at childbearing age will now be considering having them. You’ll also be looking at the ramifications on your lifestyle if you choose this path.

For others who are currently parents, there may be some challenges now as you try to reconnect or deal with issues that have been long-standing. In any case, you can cement your relationship and come out the other end with a better understanding of both ways.

Coronavirus – Astrology, Saturn and Pluto

corona virus

Coronavirus -Astrology, Saturn and Pluto

Dadhichi Toth

Coronavirus Transit Chart
In January 2020 the coronavirus news broke. Here is a horoscope wheel for the 20th January 2020, the approximate period the media announced its discovery in Wuhan China..

In this article, we will look at the natural Zodiac and what’s happening with the coronavirus. Here’s the Western-style astrology chart using tropical whole signs to analyse the connections between the planets and the outbreak of the virus.

The question has come to mind whether this disease simply jumped the species barrier or was fabricated. There are some people online asking whether there was some bio-military agenda behind the outbreak. Others ridicule that idea shouting that this line of thinking is simply a conspiracy theory. Leaving aside conspiracies, let’s take a look at what astrology and the current horoscope has to say about it.

In this chart, which you see here, Mars the ruler of the ascendant of the natural horoscope and Jupiter the ruler of the ninth house and co-ruler of the 12th house combine in Capricorn with Saturn and Pluto. The South Node or planet of past karma is also in this area of the horoscope. Apart from the karmic implications, the recent conjunction of Saturn and Pluto is extremely potent and is an indicator of events beyond our control. We are certainly seeing this in the current global circumstance emerging.

It was just around this conjunction that the news of the Wuhan province sickness was announced. On Jan 30, 2020 the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee which is a branch of the World Health Organisation made a public statement saying that this was an international public health emergency. Looking at the horoscope for that date we see that Saturn had just passed the conjunction by a degree, if that. In other words, just as this virus was emerging these two planets were doing their thing.

Figure 2 Reinhold Ebertin, German Astrologer

There are standard texts which describe the meaning of different planetary combinations. One that I find very accurate is that of Reinhold Ebertin and his Cosmobiological system. This is a German form of astrology incorporating midpoint analysis. The technique seems to translate very well practically against hundreds and hundreds of charts. Although I am a Vedic astrologer by default, I think we have to incorporate many different systems to arrive at the truth. This is one such system that definitely has great merit and I highly recommend it to any practising astrologer as a standard text.

In his book, the Combination of Stellar Influences, and written outlines combinations of planets and in particular the Saturn-Pluto duo is formidable indeed. Listen to what he has to say about that: “Hard labour, cruelty. The negative implications of this combination are quite hard and unfeeling disposition also told heartedness, severity, the tendency to violence, fanatical adherence to one’s principles once they’ve been adopted. A martyr.”

Along with the psychological correspondences and sociological issues he mentions the biological relationship of these two planets. Here is what he has to say:

“Organic underdevelopment (absence of testicles by descensus, infantile organs, organic gardening or calcification processes). The following medical observations have been found: in the case of lithopaedion (i.e. dried up or calcified features in the maternal body the mother ….).”

“Sociological correspondence deeply searching scientists, reactionaries and violent people.” This is the probable manifestation on a sociological level is the thing I find interesting is this: “the application of force or of compulsion, self-destructive energy. The loss of one’s fortune or possessions.”

In this work, he also incorporates combinations of planets including the following: “Saturn-Pluto-Jupiter: plainness and simplicity, excessive modesty, the inclination to sacrifice oneself others, religious and social fanaticism, difficulties caused through illness.”

He goes on to say:

“Saturn-Pluto-nodes: the misery of the masses, common suffering shared with many people together”

This sociological correspondence has growing relevance to what is being seen in the media now. I was only watching a documentary on Australia’s credible ABC channel. It showed people being forcibly made to take coronavirus tests. Police in China are going from door-to-door enforcing some very heavy handed laws aimed at protecting the populace.

When you see them welding residential doors shut you can realise how everyday people are finding it harder and harder to reconcile civic liberties and safety. In this scenario we clearly see the Saturn and Pluto combination showing reflecting this forceful energy, brute force, also expressed by Ebertin as ‘force majeure ‘.

Coronavirus and social unrest

This violence is also playing out in supermarkets worldwide where shelves are now empty. A shortage of food, day-to-day stocks and other basic necessities including toilet paper is creating panic buying. This would have seemed laughable just a few short weeks ago. Now, everywhere you look, people are panicking, there is fear, and people are stockpiling just to be sure that they have enough to keep them going. Now, there are lockdowns of whole cities and countries. Italy has pretty much shut down.

My understanding of the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto, especially in the sign of Capricorn is one that is going to bring about changes based upon the material values we hold as individuals, and as a race. The earth signs have a lot to do with security as well, not just money earned. When there is a clearly threatening disease epidemic, and that is the very existence of people, then natural instinct kicks in. Self-preservation is the mode and we see that en masse.

This aspect has to do with the lockdown. Being deprived of liberties, basic essentials of life, freedom to move etc brings us back down to earth. We start to realise and appreciate the simple necessities of life. Saturn and Pluto indicate some forced scenario. This is an imposed type of re-evaluation.

That re-evaluation is also now extending to the financial markets and stock exchanges around the globe. It centres of self-preservation. Survival will always win hands down against profitability. Yes, the Saturn Pluto combination is not only instrumental in the deaths of thousands of people through this virus but now extending its tentacle-like impact on our money markets and central values as well. We have a tendency to take things for granted. These intense planetary cycles are difficult but can also help us eliminate what is no longer useful. This crisis will bring us back to our core values.

As a race, we’ve drifted away from the inner spiritual core values to your materialism. That can be seen in the way we treat our environment. Let’s face it, being a murdering race historically, we are prone to killing ourselves in the tens if not hundreds of millions. Why would we have any respect for the environment when we don’t respect ourselves as living, breathing beings?

Saturn is the natural significator of death. Pluto is the natural significator of elimination, transformation and regeneration. Saturn-Pluto combinations indicate circumstances that are out of our control, forced upon us. We like to think that we have a high degree of free will and self-determination. Crises, especially global ones like this, drive the point home very clearly that we certainly do not have as much control as we think. Mother Nature can be punishing in her retribution.

It is evident that the coronavirus is now sweeping the world like an unstoppable hurricane. The immediate implications are scary. People are terrified. It’s only natural to want to preserve your health and life as well as those of your family. It’s under these current circumstances that you realise how much you have and that gratitude should at least emerge from that appreciation.

Unfortunately, when people’s very existence is at stake they will do anything to survive. Now that supermarkets, communities, cities and even countries are shutting down, we don’t want to be negative about the consequences of this on a societal level, however, one human nature in this instinct for survival takeover, people do primal things which they ordinarily wouldn’t do. In a forthcoming article I will be talking about the impact of Uranus and the real potential for mass uprisings worldwide.

Good news and the role of the media

If you look at the example horoscope, the recent retrograde Mercury, ruler of the sixth house of disease, has been transiting the 11th house. It only recently went stationary, then direct. It will shortly move into the 12th house of hospitals. In that same position, we see the Sun, ruler of the fifth house of children with Neptune. A genetic of the virus may start to see children being more affected by it.

Shortly there will be some new communication of this fact. At the same time there can be uplifting news that there will be breakthroughs in the treatment of it. Right now, while Mercury is in the trine aspect to the North Node in the fourth house let’s hope for some good news.

The coming month requires very delicate handling of communication, public relations and media. It is definitely a need for the media to be much more responsible in its approach to what’s happening. You’ll note that the transit of Mercury will hit Neptune and then the Sun. The Neptune Mercury combination is notorious for next or fuzzy communication. Miscommunication about the right to seek is also possible under that specific combination. There was a waning Moon now and within the first week of March, the Moon is it debilitation sign of Scorpio in its dark phase. No doubt people’s minds will be feeling sombre.

There is a harrowing aspect coming and that is the one of Mars coming to the position of firstly Jupiter at 22° that happens in the third week of March as well around the 20th around the same time that Dark Moon makes contact with these planets. That connection with Saturn and Pluto will bring some additional hysteria to the masses. It’s at that point that Mercury is going to make contact with the 12th house.

The ingress of March 21 will be an important one this year. The ingress is when the Sun transits into the tropical Sun sign of Aries. There will be a great deal of movement in the financial markets. There are times when the market swings upwards, and wildly so. It is also likely to do the opposite and sometimes even more crazily. There is talk of the downturn being so severe that it may rival the great depression of 1929.

New Moon Coming in Aries

That new Moon taking place on the 24th is also in a very hard aspect of the South node in Capricorn. This shows a need for retrospective reflection. A reconsideration of how we’ve been doing things as a race.

The new Moon this month takes place March 24. It occurs in the sign of Aries. I’d like to think that that comes with some heartening news is the new Moon in the angle in the natural sign spring and beginnings; Aries usually shows a new start.

Mars hits 28° of Capricorn on 28 March. It’s in orb of the conjunction to Saturn and sits right on the midpoint between Pluto and Saturn. This midpoint carries the combined influence of Mars, Saturn and Pluto. This combination is also outlined in Ebertin’s Combination of Stellar Influences. If what he says is correct, you can expect increased social unrest and violence surrounding the coronavirus alert.

This doesn’t only relate to the ferocity of nature, which has already resulted in the thousands of deaths from the disease. It also relates to the brute force and violence of this Pluto and Saturn combination. Here is what Everton has to say-“Brutality, assault or violence, ruthlessness. The necessity to fight for one’s existence or life, maltreatment.”

C:\Users\DaDiche\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\UZ64JW6O\220px-Cochabamba_crisis[1].jpg We can see that there may be some truth to the fact that people are just being left to die in the streets in China. You only have to ask yourself, if a government had to fast track the building of two or three hospitals within a matter of weeks, that there was obviously not enough infrastructures prepared for this previously. Such ad hoc, knee-jerk reactions to epidemics or even pandemics like this clearly reveal the fact that governments are putting the people first. But politics is another story.

Finding a vaccine for the coronavirus is seen by the eighth ruler Mars and also Pluto. The positive news is that this conjunction, as violent as it is, indicates a protracted, concentrated approach by the medical fraternity to find some sort of vaccine or cure.

In some systems of Vedic astrology, the 10th house is given governance over doctors and medical science. Mars and Pluto certainly indicate that and with Jupiter’s benign influence, the last few days of March and the beginning of April offer some promise or hope that there is indeed a breakthrough in the treatment of this dreaded disease.

The Astrology of Success

The Astrology of Success BLOG BY ASTROLOGY.COM.AU

How are Courage, Determination and Success Seen from Your Astrology Horoscope

Everyone wants to be successful. They want to have a fulfilling life with a profitable career, satisfactory relationships and a family. They pretty much want all their ambitions fulfilled. The reality of life is far from fulfilling… for most. Most of us plan, create lists, study and get all hyped-up at motivational talks. Spiritual seminars and other academic forums are also used as ‘leverage’. We tend to believe the more we learn and understand, the more it will help us connect with the right people. All this is hoped will result in greater success.

ASTROLOGY OF SUCCESS NEWSLETTERIn astrology, success is shown from the strength of the horoscope at the exact moment of birth. Success is shown by the location of the planet ruling the rising sign, the Sun. More importantly, the 10th house of the horoscope and its ruler, relate to the potential for success and brilliance in life. Few stop to consider that underlying any success is the courage or fearlessness required to take the appropriate steps to achieve a specific goal.

The third house of the horoscope tells all about one’s desire, and the ability to actively seek what one wishes to achieve. If the 10th house is strong but the third house is weak, they can indeed achieve success but it will more or less be stumbled upon or happen as a consequence of luck rather than any wilful or directed action to that end.

Success is not only based upon courage, however. Trust is an extremely important component of having the courage to take those first steps. Very often, we have bad experiences and our attempts to achieve something significant remain unfulfilled. If you’ve fallen flat on your face, you aren’t exactly endowed with the faith required for any future attempts, are you? Therefore, faith that Providence will carry you through and provide you success is an extremely important ingredient.

Another factor in success is perseverance. As Thomas Edison once asserted, it wasn’t the success of his achievement in creating the electric lightbulb that was the extraordinary thing. Rather, the prior 10,000 failed experiments were the greater success according to him. In other words, if this story and many others like it are anything to go by, a person is only a failure if they give up without making repeated attempts to achieve their heart’s yearning.

Finally, a carefully crafted plan which can sometimes take years to refine is a must. Once the plan has been written down, you can commence working that plan. As the saying goes-plan your work, then work your plan.

astrology of success do something greatEmpower yourself NOW!

These above points are essentials in your search for success and a meaningful life. Having courage to pursue what you love, and to do what makes you feel alive and passionate is not something everyone is blessed with. Your sincere endeavours are most often undermined by subconscious fears. This is where astrology comes to the rescue and reveals those areas in your life that are hampering your efforts.

Bright, planets such as the Sun now, Mars and Jupiter ruling or connected with the third house augment your success. Any hard aspect to these planets will naturally indicate likely challenges. But why fear challenges? Look at the number of failed rocket launches that Elon musk and Space X have attempted for him to achieve his dream of venturing out into space and populating planets for the future posterity of humanity!

Any of the malefic planets such as the Sun, Mars, ill associated Mercury and a waning Moon, along with the North or South node, function extremely well in the third house of the horoscope. Not all are endowed the same measure of courage. Mars is more vocal and physical in its manifestation than say, the Moon which is inherently softer by nature. But any of these in their own way promise success especially during their allotted cycle or when in transit they cast auspicious aspects. Having any connection to the 6th, 9th, 10th or 11th houses greatly amplifies the opportunity for success in one’s chosen field. A clever astrologer can pinpoint the timings and even sometimes the exact dates when these upward movements in career and life achievements are likely to occur.

The 11th house of your horoscope shows the promise and fulfilment of those desires. Desire is the fuel for any ambitious plan – practical, emotional or spiritual. Unfortunately, due to cultural and societal upbringing, we generally only apply the term success to practical, professional and financial ideals. In fact, such things as marital happiness, sporting, hobby interests and spiritual activities require the same measure of courage, discipline, intent and planning as any material goal.

destiny engineeringAstrology is, in a sense, a form of destiny engineering as I call it. It’s through this mechanism of looking at the horoscope, seeing what the inherent value and strength is that we gain greater insight into a person’s potential. Along with the challenges that are prevalent in the chart we can see exactly how to travel the straightest path between A and B to achieve those desired goals. There are remedial measures that can be utilised to counteract the influence of obstructive planets. This is especially important when hard planetary aspects adversely affect the 10th house of profession. This segment of the horoscope is also referred to as the house of karma. By karma, we not only mean the law of cause and effect and its operation but also karma as the general field of activity, action and diligent pursuit of any ambition.

Those challenges are more easily dealt with if there is additional strength in the third house or to its ruler. If you lack courage and are timid and empty of any sort of self-confidence, how can you possibly achieve anything in life? The primary job of the astrologer is to firstly see whether or not you are capable of achieving success. This must be promised in your horoscope.

As mentioned earlier, some people stumble upon success, win the lottery or have huge empires handed down to them through inheritance and the like. Unfortunately, many of them lose everything given to them. It’s a well-known fact that those who win lotteries often commit suicide or again, end up penniless because of a lack of discipline or knowledge in how to handle such large sums of money.

Mike TysonLooking at your horoscope it’s necessary see in what way your third house can be strengthened. What is the condition of your third house? What are the planets that are going to give you the requisite strength, courage and trust to move forward confidently and to take those calculated risks that are often necessary to achieve a level of success that the average person is not willing or able to achieve?Let’s take a look at the horoscope of someone who has achieved success and look at the third house of the horoscope. The following chart is that of Mike Tyson the youngest boxing champion in history. (The chart has been prepared using a western tropical format with a whole house system).

In his birth chart, the ruler of the third house happens to be one of the same as the ruler of the 10th house, i.e. Venus. Look at Venus the planet of courage placed in the 11th house of fulfilment of desires. It’s not far from his North node or planet of karma.

There’s no doubt that his desire, courage and intention was linked to his sense of purpose and destiny. Yes,Mike Tyson was indeed destined for great things. Having the ruler of the third house simultaneously ruling the 10th in the 11th of fulfilment is a very fortunate combination. The 10th and 11th houses linked to ones profession make all sorts of amazing wishes come true. The fact that he lost most of his fortune is another matter which can be seen from the Sun and Jupiter in the 12th house of expenditure.

Ordinarily wouldn’t think that the planet of art, music and culture would be so prominent in the chart of a boxer. If you look carefully, you’ll see that Mars and Venus are both located in the same sign of Gemini and Mars also has the strong square aspect of Saturn, which rules his sixth house of work. It is placed in the eighth house of death. This empowers him to conquer his enemies. You also see a similar and intimate link of Saturn and Mars in the horoscope of Muhammad Ali.

Neil ArmstrongAnd here we have the horoscope of the first man to land on of the Moon, Neil Armstrong. The ruler of the third house, the Sun is boldly placed in its own sign and house indicating the sheer courage possessed by this man.

The sextile aspect of Mars, another planet that naturally endows one with boldness, is in a favourable sextile aspect to the Sun.

It’s interesting to note that the air sign of Gemini’s rising that much of his work related to air travel. The ruler rising sign, Mercury is very closely associated with Neptune, which rules the idealistic nature of his work.

Jupiter, the co-ruler of his work, is aspected by Saturn, which rules all things hidden being in the eighth house.

Martin Luther KingCourage comes in different forms and Martin Luther King exhibited that socially and politically by fighting for black civil rights. He achieved his ends but paid the final price. The Moon rules the third house of courage and is closely associated with his ascendant ruler Venus.

Saturn, which co-rules his professional activities, is in a hard aspect to the Moon indicating the challenges he had in fulfilling his ideals. Note also the basement of transformative Pluto in the third house indicating someone who never gives up.

By looking at the third house of your horoscope, you can see the type of strength and courage that you possess. If you are endowed with valour you can see easily where you can direct this energy for the best results. Unfortunately, not everyone possesses that high level of courage as shown in these few examples. If that’s the case, some measures can be taken to improve your courage quotient.

The January 2019 Solar Eclipse-New Moon In Capricorn Signals a NEW YOU!!


Here’s the thought for you. This is the biggest secret that isn’t a secret. When you’re doing what you do with attention, fully immersed in this single immediate moment, and most importantly, unconscious of any sort of gain, you’re approaching the beautiful state of freedom.

When spiritual books tell you to live in the moment, it’s not something you have to bring in from outside. Living in the moment is about being immersed fully, in this moment and only this moment. That’s the secret. This meditation is explosive and will fast-track you to Nirvana. Simple? Yeah? Try it and give me your thoughts.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn: New Self on the Way

Speaking of the new you, today is 9 January 2019, and as I write this, the new Moon has just taken place in the practical earth sign of Capricorn. As a general rule of thumb the new Moon is about new beginnings. How coincidental that the New Year and this new Moon solar eclipse coincide. But in serendipity there are no accidents.

If you’re looking at these transits purely from the material perspective you’ve missed the point. What this new Moon is telling you is that your material life needn’t be removed from the joy and love you experience when you’re happily engaged in a pastime, hobby or anything which isn’t work. But this secret, this awareness is a new level of perception and is independent of work, pleasure, happiness or suffering. Cultivating this level of understanding in your mundane activities spiritualises those activities. Once this happens there’s no distance between your practical worldly life and your yoga practice. Day-to-day life becomes one big yoga posture. As the Buddhist saying goes, “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.”

The resolution needed this New Year isn’t one of changing circumstance, work, financial status or facial features (with cosmetic surgery) but rather, one of insightful perception about transforming yourself. The new Moon solar eclipse in Capricorn signals a new you!

Capricorn is a material, security conscious earth sign. The new Moon here offers you a way out by inviting you to embrace materialism and simply change your outlook. The acquisition or loss of money, power and status isn’t the issue. Likewise there’s no necessity to accept or reject any circumstance find yourself in. Use what life is throwing at you intelligently as a stepping stone to the higher gateways of inner development.

Maintaining presence of mind brings deeper insight into the fluctuating karmic patterns of life. It endows you with the ability to stabilizes your awareness in the midst of changing life conditions, even catastrophic ones.

Astrologers Brief forecast

This new Moon solar eclipse has taken place in a cardinal sign and therefore all the cardinal signs will feel its impact very strongly. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. As there is a huge buildup of planets in this same sign – Mercury, Saturn, the Sun, Pluto and the Moon, immense energies are building to a coming crescendo.

From January 15 – 20 the hard aspect of Mars to this conglomerate of planets will be explosive. It’s during this cycle that self-containment and presence of mind will be most useful. Taking full control of yourself will help avert disputes, breakups which will be caused by impulsive choices and behaviour.

What happens in 2019 rests upon many astrological factors. The first new Moon of the year and where it stands in your horoscope can be very revealing for the general trend of the coming year. If it affects your rising or Sun sign you’ll make New Year’s resolutions associated with your physical self, appearance and ways in which you can become more popular.

The seventh house new Moon would relate to your business partnerships, marital status and changes that will necessarily take place in these most important relationships, and so on and so forth.

Here briefly, are the spheres of life in which this new Moon will impact each of the star signs.

Astrology in Different Cultures


When things go wrong in your life, you might reckon that it could be because of the bad choices you make. But when random things happen to you without you lifting any finger, then you think there might be mysterious forces in the universe that conspired to make them happen.

This, perhaps, is the simplest way to describe what astrology refers to. But in reality, astrology is an interestingly complex subject that also influences cultural groups in many different ways.

In this post, we’ll take a look at astrology as practiced in three different cultures around the world.

Astrology in different cultures

Western Astrology

For those in Western countries, this is probably the most popular form of astrology, as you can read it in horoscopes published in newspapers and magazine columns. Its focus is on sun signs, which gives it a rather tip-of-the-iceberg nature since it only represents a small fraction of the full astrology chart.

Historically, Western astrology goes as far back as 2300 BC, starting in ancient Mesopotamia and making its way into ancient Greece around 600 BC. However, it was during the period of Hellenistic culture when the study, development, and acceptance of astrology became widespread with the concepts of horoscopes and zodiacs, as we know them today, being introduced at the time.

Core Principles

The central principle of Western astrology is integration within the cosmos. To help you better understand it, you need to be familiar with the other core principles and main terminologies associated with Western astrology.

  • The individual, Earth, and its environment represent a single organism with parts that are correlated with each other.
  • When an individual and the Earth undergo cycles of change, you can expect that the same cycles of change are observed in the heavens as well. This is the idea that the maxim “as above so below” expresses.
  • The sun, moon, and planets journey across the sky through a band of constellations called the zodiac.
  • The zodiac has 12 signs representing the same number of constellations through which the sun passes for the whole duration of the year. Each of these 12 signs corresponds to a basic personality type based on what elements (fire, earth, air, and water) and modes (cardinal, fixed, and mutable) comprise them.

The 12 Signs of the Zodiac

Zodiac Signs

Looking at the chart below, you will see that the 12 signs of the zodiac are further divided into a corresponding house, with Aries in the first house, and ruling planets to determine its energy.

In a nutshell, Western astrology can help you identify a sign by understanding the house, planet, god, element, mode, and polarity associated with it. Thus, you would come across personality tests that are based on astrological symbols and the meanings they represent.


Chinese Astrology

We all know China as the birthplace of some of the most popular schools of thought such as Confucianism and Taoism, but did you know that astrology is also one of its major contributions to mankind?

Chinese astrology is based on and tied to astronomy—the study of the positions, motions, and properties of objects in the universe, which flourished during the Han Dynasty.

Aside from being closely related to Chinese philosophy, Chinese astrology also takes a lot of elements such as traditional Chinese astronomy and calendars which are concepts not found in Western astrology—making it a very comprehensive form of astrology.

Core Principles

  • The theory of the harmony between heaven, earth, and water is the guiding principle behind Chinese astrology. It is also based on the principles of yin and yang, the complementary forces in nature, and other concepts not found in Western astrology such as the lunisolar calendar.
  • Chinese astrology takes into account the position of the major planets, sun, moon, and comets at the time one is born, as well as the zodiac sign to determine that person’s destiny. Modern-day Chinese astrology also believes in computing a person’s fate based on birthday, birth season, and birth hours.
  • The Chinese lunar (also called lunisolar) calendar is a major component of Chinese astrology. The start of each lunar year depends on the cycles of the moon’s phases, which is in contrast to the solar calendar being used in the West whose annual cycles are based only directly upon the solar year.
  • The Chinese zodiac follows a 12-year lunar cycle, with the year in which you were born determines your sign.
  • Each sign is represented by one of 12 animals, which is believed to be chosen by Buddha to honor them for visiting him just before he died. Each sign is also assigned a set of attributes based on the nature of their animal counterpart.

Each of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac appears in the Chinese calendar in a cycle of 12 years following this order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

Zodiac Animals

Thanks to the influence of Chinese astrology, the calendar was invented to help people organize their life and establish laws that are in harmony with the world.

The Chinese zodiac is also significant since the signs have helped the Chinese mark or date years according to the 12-cycle period being followed in the Chinese calendar.


Vedic Astrology

Do you believe in the saying “What goes around comes around?” Such is the essence of karma or the belief that whatever you do, whether good or bad, comes back to you.

The subject of karma also implies that what you do is based on your motive or intention, with corresponding repercussions or outcomes, of course.

Whether or not you believe in karma, it’s one of the elements that heavily influence Indian or Vedic astrology, which is a popular concept in the modern age.

Vedic astrology is an astrological system that was developed in India 4000 to 6000 years ago and follows the principles and practice of the Hindu religion. Also known as Jyotisa, which translates to “light,” Vedic astrology focuses on astral patterns of light and how those patterns influence the destiny or Dharma of humans.

Like Western astrology, Vedic astrology uses the 12 signs of the zodiac, although the two differ in the way their calendars relate to the signs.

Core Principles

  • Vedic culture views nature with three primary attributes and humans with four legitimate motivations.

    Attribute 1: Rajas – pertains to passion and activity

    Attribute 2: Tamas – pertains to darkness and chaos

    Attribute 3: Sattva – pertains to harmony and goodness

    Motivation 1: Dharma – the performance of meaningful work

    Motivation 2: Artha – the acquisition of wealth and material security

    Motivation 3: Kama – the desire for emotional and sensual enjoyment

    Motivation 4: Moksha – spiritual liberation and enlightenment

  • The Indian philosophy asserts that the three attributes in nature exist in everyone and everything, but in different proportions and contexts.

    Human beings and living things are said to be the sum of all these three qualities.

  • There’s a hierarchy of life goals in Vedic science such that the first three motivations can never supersede the fourth one, meaning a life with no spiritual liberation is considered to be insignificant no matter how successful, wealthy, or happy you are.

    An honorable life in Vedic astrological tradition is one that’s based on the doctrine of karma.

The 12 Signs of the Zodiac Based on Their Attributes and Motivations

Zodiac Attributes

While other forms of astrology are often dismissed as pseudoscience, Vedic astrology is hailed to maintain a “scientific” prevalence in modern India.

Many Indians take astrological advice at face value. In fact, some Indian universities offer advanced degrees in astrology.

Although the credibility of astrology, in general, is still up for debate, there’s no doubt that astrology holds an important place in certain cultures all over the world. Learning about the relevance of astrology to different cultures allows us to keep an open mind and gain a better understanding of our interconnectedness with the universe – and with one another.

Astrology: Talent, Faith and Success


As an introduction to the new year of 2017, I thought I’d talk a little bit about talent and how to use that for achieving something meaningful in your life. Usually one of the biggest difficulties initially is identifying not only what your talent is but if that talent will provide you happiness and satisfaction or not. Many people possess a variety of talents but don’t necessarily feel harmonised in body mind and spirit through the expression of that talent. Guilt can play a part in this. If for example, your Jewish father wanted you to continue in the lending business because you were great at winning new clients but your heart really was set upon playing the guitar in a band, which you were also good at, what would you do? In your heart of hearts, you want to play guitar but your cultural conditioning and sense of guilt prevent you doing what you know you should – out of fear.

If you’re fortunate enough to discover what it is you are talented at and also feel happy doing it, you then need the focus of a high order to magnify your passion and talent. Through one-pointed determination set your heart on achieving your goal. For the most part, you should use your own power and means to achieve what you desire in life even if you happen to have the option for financial and professional support to get you further. No man is an island under himself, but you should also be careful of becoming indebted to people would give you money only as a means of ensnaring you for their own selfish ends. Practical and commonsensical skills as an adjunct to the above are often conspicuously seen lacking in some of the most creative individuals and even some of the biggest stars on the world stage. Many end up completely broke.

The vast majority of people on planet Earth who believe in God never really achieve anything worthwhile because the faith they have is impotent in that they do nothing themselves to utilise the science and laws of success practically. They are waiting, forever waiting for Something above to give them what they pray for. I’m not saying you shouldn’t believe in God and in fact if you do have faith in some higher power you should show God just how much you appreciate the gifts given by Him/Her by doing your best to develop them to the best of your ability. This is called gratitude and is another fundamental law of success and wealth.

True gratitude is not easily understood. It is the sense that you have more than enough even if you don’t. That is why the poverty struck and those with a scarcity mentality constantly worry about not having enough and therefore, consequently, amplify the thought and feeling of scarcity thereby attracting more of that in their lives. What is true, practical faith if not acting as if you have more than enough? You must always act “AS IF” with the following thoughts

I am successful

I have money

I am great at what I do

These thoughts generate positive your chemicals in the body which in turn enhance your aura and have an impact on the environment and people around you. Electromagnetic aura is exactly that – magnetic, and has the power to attract objects, people, events and circumstances including the success that you want. Act AS IF even if NOT is your current condition!

The faith most religious people talk of is never a practical faith and rarely is it ever true courage, valor or unflinching strength – that strength of believing in yourself against all odds. Using religion as an analogy, the concept of faith is easily talked about. It’s very cheap. But what if say, the Pope, the spiritual figurehead for God here on earth to a billion faithful was to fall ill. Would the bishops reach for a Bible praying to Jesus for recovery or would they rush him to the hospital and avail themselves of the best medical expertise in Rome? Where one’s faith lies is very easily seen in actions which always speak louder than words.

It would appear from the observation that far greater faith in medicine than in any great healing teaching of Jesus seems to be exhibited by the majority of people even those of ‘faith’. The belief that he would heal those who pray to him should be enough to convince at least the Pope of the efficacy of prayer and faith. You’d think the Pope, closest child of God, would set an example to his fawning followers to prove to them at least his own power of faith even if it meant his death. We all know from Christian doctrine that death is conquerable and according to Catholic tradition through faith is one the ability to overcome any fear. You realise I’m being facetious, don’t you?

But what has any of this to do with astrology? Astrology is a tool, a catalyst for understanding your strengths and weaknesses and in particular the talents that may be embedded within your genetic makeup. Understanding your talents gives rise to a belief they can be improved upon and generate success. This is the birth of faith in one’s own self. Your interests, study patterns and work prospects are clearly seen in your horoscope. Astrology is not about dreaming about what will happen but is a very efficient way of knowing what and also when and how. Along with talent it’s imperative to do self-analysis and that must be done without the imposition of any dogma in the process. This is easier than it sounds because at our core we are conditioned animals – genetically and environmentally and this is dramatically impacted by our cultural and religious heritage.

If you must read books like the Bible or even the Koran you should do so with a completely open mind and stand receptive to the intuitive meaning for you and your life at any given moment. This sometimes means your interpretation will be at odds with the prevailing religious trend. But isn’t that what exactly what has happened with 300 different Christian denominations. Each and every one of them has a different view of the Bible. Each and every one of them justifies their view. So I say create another viewyour own view and use it in the best way you can with discrimination and spiritual intuition. That’s  the voice of God if indeed you’d like to believe there is one.

Now consulting astrology that doesn’t necessarily mean your life will have every single issue resolved through the horoscope. That is again a matter of faith and courage on your part, where you must make decisions and stop relying on supernatural forces including the planets, to bring you the results you daydream about. Wishful thinking won’t produce any results. And doing the same thing over and over again just because you have a Bible in your hand will also not produce results. Again that is why 99% of the people believing in God die in poverty. Don’t you think that’s rather odd? The fact of the matter is that God only really helps those who help themselves.

Helping yourself is best done through self-understanding and wisdom. That is the primary motivation of astrology – to reflect back to the inquirer what karmic residue from the previous life in terms of abilities, can be accessed in this current incarnation. Some of that residue is also disharmonious and obstructive and there are ways to deal with that.

Primarily the first house, which is the edifice of the horoscope, should be carefully looked at. The 2nd house which is finance and the ability to earn money is obviously tied in with the 10th house of professional achievement and activity. The 6th house is discipline, daily work, and skills. The 2nd, 6th and 10th house, therefore, form a triangle being 120° apart from each other. In the natural Zodiac, these star signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, the earth trine. Looking at these part of the horoscope yield valuable information on the value system one has and what capacity through skillful action one is endowed with and able to achieve. The pinnacle of that achievement is the 10th house.

But earning money is not necessarily satisfying as was explained at the outset. Intellectual, social, creative and spiritual satisfaction need to be interwoven into the financial fabric of one’s overall success. The 3rd house, 5th house, and 9th houses happen to be different aspects of the mind. This tells us of the intellectual motivations and directions a person is likely to take. The 5th house is particularly important in terms of one’s creative ability and, to an extent, competitive instincts. The 9th house is the spiritual mind and along with the 5th house has much to say about the past and future life of the individual and where this life may be used as a catalyst to fulfill one’s aspirations. Also, ultimately, these areas of the horoscope tell you where one is destined to be. It’s often said that great and successful people often believed they were destined for great things.

In studying the 10th house of profession and success, the 11th house can’t be overlooked as these deals with one’s life fulfillment and interestingly is also connected with social activities and friends. In many cases the social elements in your life are a key to success and being human we do tend to naturally gravitate towards group activities and team spirit as part of the drive for success. We like to share our successes in a social context.

The Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter relate strongly to the issues of success and career. Unfortunately, most people reverse the law in the hope of achieving success. By that I mean that money is usually the motivation and the goal rather than creative passion and excellence in the pursuit of some lofty ideal being the primary criteria for success. With the perfection of skill comes celebrity or fame and this naturally leads to wealth. This is by far the best way to achieve the triumph you desire. Through astrology and the study of the planets and houses, you will make wonderful sense of the jigsaw that your life may appear to be at this time. Putting those pieces together is the first goal on your path to success. Once the jigsaw is solved, the picture of your life becomes so much clearer.



The Art of Forgiveness and the 12 signs of the Zodiac – Dadhichi Toth


Forgiving others is not always an easy thing, especially if you’ve been hurt deeply. But I thought I would extend the concept of Christmas at this time to include this charitable act which is often a very difficult thing for many of us. How does the art of forgiveness impact on each of the twelve signs of the Zodiac?

Because each Zodiac personality sees life and deals with people and circumstances so differently it’s important to understand how each sign can use its unique character traits to break free of these self-limiting patterns of holding grudges and not forgiving others for the wrongs committed against us. The converse of this is where we may have done wrong to others and find the forgiveness we so deeply desire in our lives is not forthcoming.

This flip side of the coin is sometimes unbearable and I have many clients consulting me ( in particular parents ), estranged from children suffering desperately for years – sometimes until the end of their lives not being able to reconcile, simply for the reason that the child they hurt has never been able to forgive them.

With Aries, we note the fiery passion of Mars which is often ruthless, bold and impulsive. If you are born under this sign you are likely to say and do things in a harsh and impetuous way without thinking. If you hurt someone it’s not always intentionally but the problem is that you are unconscious about it and if others bring this to your attention you may not be aware of what they are talking about. The theme therefore is to remain more aware, more conscious of what you are saying and to note the nuances in others’ facial characteristics, body language and the way people react to you when you say and do things. Generally for an Aries, forgiveness is not too difficult. Your anger is often short lived and you are able to reconcile and let go of things much more easily than some of the other signs of the Zodiac. The fact that yours is a cardinal or movable sign means you are able to move on and let bygones be bygones.

Taurus for you, forgiveness may not always be an easy thing due to the fixity of your sign. Venus too endows you with a great deal of passion and usually I speak of this passion in terms of the sensual excessive side of life but we can extend this concept to such things as emotional patterns and your inability to break through or to let go of things. Therefore there are some Taureans that I have known who tend to hold grudges and get stuck in a fixed pattern of thinking and reacting to others. The lesson for you this Christmas and my best advice is to use a little bit of mental WD40 to loosen the cogs of change and to get the machinery of flexibility moving freely again.

Gemini, you are the sort of person who is able to freely and intellectually move in different directions and your communication skills are great. So this does tend to give you the edge when it comes to dealing with others especially when you have been hurt or you have hurt them. Maintaining an open line of communication is always the best policy irrespective of what side of the forgiveness equation you are on. By speaking about how you feel and truly endeavouring to understand the other persons view point can help you break through any of the barriers you have in your relationships. Let’s just hope this Christmas you are able to cast aside your cynicism and some of the sarcasm that is sometimes found in the Gemini temperament to reconcile from a really heartfelt space.

Cancer, you are moody, self-absorbed and often unable to let go of the deep dark moods you feel. Coupled with these changing emotional tides due to the rulership of the Moon, you also have a tendency to be hypersensitive and this is a dangerous recipe especially if you are working towards perfecting the art of forgiveness. The upside of being a Cancer when it comes to these issues is that you are capable of a high degree of empathy and the key to your forgiveness is compassion – simply putting yourself in the shoes of the other person to see just how you’d feel if someone wasn’t able to forgive you. Through this practise you’ll make great spiritual strides in your life and relationships during this Christmas period.  When dealing with many family members it’s all the more important for those born under the sign of Cancer to handle their family relationships with deeper insight now.

Leo, you are one of the most fixed signs of the Zodiac, fiery, bright and at times self-righteous,  even pompous in your approach. Like your fire brother, Aries, there are times when you feel as if what you are saying and doing is harmless yet other people take your statements and actions to heart. Then you wonder why at some future time you are not being treated in the way you feel you deserve. It’s imperative for you to reach out and ask others for their opinion of your behaviour and as hard as this may be, the one thing that will help you to evolve very speedily in your personal relationship. In being able to openly accept constructive criticism you’ll pave the way for more flexible relationship and a greater ability to forgive others and also to forgive yourself.

Virgo, the art of forgiveness may be a little easier for you than others due to the fact that your key signature as far as personality is concerned is service and improving things. But this can at times be a double-edged sword for you as your ideals and expectations are very hard for other people to meet. Consequently you tend to be hypercritical and demanding of others especially when you see attributes and potential in them that they yet can’t. Intellectual patience is important for you and this in itself can bypass many of the problems you have regarding forgiveness. As the old adage goes, “an ounce of prevention is far better than a pound of cure”.

Libra, Librans do tend to want peace but at what cost I ask? Sometimes even if a Libran hasn’t exactly done anything wrong, for the sake of peace they will apologise and ask for forgiveness. “Sorry, I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings”. I hear this often, almost as an unconscious regurgitation from some deep, dark subconscious corner of the Libran psyche. Yes forgiveness is essential in relationships but not at the expense of dignity and self-respect. On the point of a genuine need for forgiveness though, the Libran is accommodating and will give people a second chance if only for the sake of keeping that peace. Finding a balance between peace and being true to yourself is a difficult life challenge for you. No wonder the scales are your icon.

Scorpio, the eighth sign of the Zodiac, fixed, brooding, deep and mysterious is not the most amenable sign to forgiveness and in fact I have met many Scorpions who harbour lifetime grudges and vendettas, being unable to forgive. This is a shame because the power of forgiveness has as its greatest recipient the one who does the forgiving. Forgiveness is not for the other person but for one’s own self a great gift. Those who are unforgiving carry a burden, a deep seated resentment which slowly deteriorates the inner spirit and finally the health and vitality of the person. The truly transformative and regenerative influence of the Scorpionic energies can only be had if the art of forgiveness is truly taken on board and practised.

Sagittarius, this ninth sign of the Zodiac has all the attributes of the higher mind being ruled by Jupiter, being arguably the most spiritual of planets. For this reason the Jupitarian, Sagittarian, is ever read to forgive and recommence a relationship that has faltered by wiping the slate completely clean. But others should know that this should be not taken advantage of as the one born under the sign of Sagittarius has also a fire side and beneath the easy going and magnanimous gestures is a temperament that can turn and crush others just as easily. This is not always evident when reading traditional books on Astrology but is certainly the case. Those born under the sign of Sagittarius can also be somewhat exaggerative in their gestures and there words. If it’s necessary to enter into negotiations to give or receive forgiveness it’s best to say as little as possible. Allow the power of your ruling planet Jupiter to re-engage the other person and re-ignite those flames of love once again.

As a Saturnine being born under the sign of the Goat, Capricorn forgiveness is also not always easy for you. You’re cautious by nature so that gives you the edge in that you are not likely to haphazardly involve yourself with people that let you down. If that is the case it’s probably earlier in life when you are still learning the ropes about relationships. When you’ve been burned a few times you’re likely to learn from your mistakes and so will avoid those people and situations so as to side step any future suffering and emotional turmoil. Depending on where your ruling planet Saturn is stationed at the time you’re born this will also have some marked impact on the way you forgive and forget.  Capricorns prefer to learn from their past mistakes rather than repeating them. Because Saturn brings with it a rather pessimistic outlook it’s best for you as with the sign of Scorpio to do your best to release yourself from deep broodings over past hurts and remove thoughts of vengeance. Forgiveness and letting go (I didn’t say forgetting completely) is your ticket to inner peace and spiritual freedom.

Aquarius, you are rather unusual in the way you handle your relationship and the fact that you are unconventional to say the least. In terms of patching up relationships, forgiving and being forgiven, you are likely to be rather unpredictable so it is essential for you to decide whether you do want to forgive someone or not. You may need time to draw your conclusions and perhaps there may be some conditions attached to the forgiveness. Let me tell you unequivocally this won’t work. True forgiveness has to be unconditional even if it is somewhat unconventional. The progressive mind set of an Aquarian needs freedom on an emotional level to function in its higher aspects. By weighing yourself down with emotional baggage you’ll notice a distinct downgrading of your mental clarity and professional and future success. As mentioned to some of the other signs, forgiveness offers its greatest benefits to those who do the forgiving.

Pisces, being born on the twelfth sign, the most compassionate and self-effacing of Zodiac signs you, out of all of your Zodiac brothers and sisters, are imbued with the ability to forgive unconditionally. I often talk about this ability as being a crucifix on your shoulders, and if you have read my newsletter this month you will note the symbol of the fish is synonymous with the crucifix. I say this because whilst I certainly extol the virtue of forgiveness I also say in the same breath that forgiveness for you should never become a burden or a process of becoming a victim yourself.  Never forgive someone for the same misdeed over and over again. This is not unconditional forgiveness, this is, simply foolishness. You too must learn from your mistakes in giving undeserving people far too many chances. Knowing when to forgive and not to forgive is the secret lesson for those of you born under Pisces. 


Simple planetary remedies for Good Luck


Are you born lucky or is there something you can do to improve your chances for good luck, romance and general fortune? Astrology and other psychic practices usually only ‘predict’ what will happen and often only vaguely, as if you are simply a puppet on a string. What if there was a way to avert the difficulties and misfortunes that come to all of us and you were able to enhance your luck and destiny?

Well, secret astrological principles actually do exist and can be used effectively in all areas of your life thereby empowering you. In our new column, astrologer and face reader Dadhichi will be sharing many of these ancient yet simple and effective ritual technologies with you. Many clients often complain of debt and excessive expenses which continually outstrip their incomes. Apart from the usual advice of exercising more frugality and control over their credit cards there are some useful esoteric remedies which can assist in this respect. This week will look at how to improve your finances, and general fortunes also.

Over and above from the spiritual benefits of charitable work and making donations to community projects, specifically offering your services and a small amount of your resources on a Thursday to charitable institutions, the planet Jupiter will be activated to improve your own financial circumstances. Making an offering of articles which are yellow or planting of yellow-flower plants may also help. This is due to the fact that that Thursday and the colour yellow are strongly linked to the beneficent the Jupiter. Some eastern astrologers are also of the opinion that keeping your money in a leather wallet or purse may inhibit the inflow of wealth. Try using different materials to carry your money around.

Finally, those of you who are suffering from low income or heavy debts which are causing new concern, may try soaking a handful of whole green mung beans overnight and feeding pigeons and other small birds. There are some other very novel ideas relating to how you can increase your wealth and finances including the planting of a Tulsi. Plant. This is none other than the basil herb which, if watered daily results in good luck for you and your family. Apparently the vibrations of this plant tend to have a positive effect on your environment and have the power to attract money. Feng Shui also says similar things about different objects, plants and colors to heighten your luck in your life.
