Handling the Oscillating Mind, and Utilising Graha Energies with Vedic Astrology

When we are close to our Karma through sustained adherence to Vedic astrology, our vision comes uncluttered. An example of this would be the emotional condition of the man in general during the transit of the Moon in Libra and Scorpio which impact has been covered in a previous paper.

Someone simply buffeted by the winds of past Karma without having been afforded much perspective is in the danger of responding completely instinctively. In Libra, the transit Moon was joined Śani/ Shani and Rāhu/ Rahu and was stressed in its own way. Thereafter the mind entered the depths during its sojourn in the mysterious Scorpio/ Vṛṣcika/ Vrishchika where it was aspected by Rāhu/ Rahu as well.

Currently, the mind indicated by the movement of the Moon is joined the great retrograde benefic Venus/ Śukra in Sagittarius/ Dhanuṣa/ Dhanusha Rāśi/ Rashi and receives the aspect of retrograde Jupiter as well.

The proper way to use the knowledge of Jyotiṣa/ Jyotisha/ Vedic astrology is to see the indications of Karma and developed thought and action on the lines visible. When we do this we are with the flow. In this smoother transit some may simply heave a sigh of relief and be grateful for it having all become better. Others may have charted out a way and appreciated the energies at a deeper level in the astute personal context of their lives which of course is the focus of some of the papers capable of being availed.

At that level we simply do not relish the easy going nature of the conjunction of the mind with the aesthetic principle shown by Venus but associate ourselves actively with the field of play and the dynamics created by the Rāśi/ Rashi/ Graha and Yoga.

We use the informed and knowledgeable optimism of Dhanuṣa Rāśi/ Dhanusha Rashi where the mind dwells on the 28th and 29th of January, 2014. Our thoughts and interactions are fuelled by a deep, phlegmatic understanding. The vastness of resources available is not easy to comprehend and there are divergent pulls as well.

Irrespective of how a person is placed in terms of choice of surroundings in any area of life, these tendencies will be felt based on the personal junction in the Karmic journey. In fact when we know the horoscope well and know which planets are important and active at any given point in time then their movements and associations have far greater relevance than the others. Also, each planet based on its disposition and portfolio can be similarly attended to because in another sense all planets are always working in life.

Hope and belief are important at this time especially since the emotions are high due to the Rudra Yoga formed both due to the Yuti of the Gochara Cañdra/ Chandra/ Moon with Venus and also due to the Graha Driṣṭi/ Drishti and the Rāśi Dṛṣti/ Rashi Drishti of Mars/ Maṅgala/ Mangala in Kanya Rashi/ Rāśi/ Virgo.

Not only is there high feeling about beliefs and aspirations but also an element of drive and fire infused by Mars.

We all know what is meant by support and how it feels when we support someone in need or when someone extends a helping hand. In Jyotiṣa/ Jyotisha this is called the concept of the Paraspara Kāraka/ Karaka. Due to the placement in mutual quadrants/ Keṅdras/ Kendras Jupiter in Gemini/ Gurū/ Guru in Mithuna Rashi/ Rāśi, Mars in Virgo and Venus and Moon in Sagittarius have all become supportive of each other and of human endeavour and human affairs.

Saturn makes this transit somewhat mentally burdened despite the major benefic influences and the formation of the Gajakeśarī/ Gajakeshari Yoga, the Gurū-Maṅgala/ Guru-Mangala Yoga and the Yanavanta/ Annapurna Yoga. It is not bad because the mind will be goaded to strive hard and not to rest content easily. This is Parakrama.

When we think of these matters we also think of the energies of the day or the Vara/ Vāra and the other constituents of the Pañcāṅga/ Panchanga. We should know the details of the year as well because that has a distinct entity of its own.

When we are thus attuned with the Karma, we belong in our own lives rather than wading through like strangers to whom this life is somehow happening.

Budha/ Mercury has also changed signs and has come to Kumbha Rāśi/ Rashi or Aquarius. This makes the communication less focussed on work than on exploration. The rationale and communications are venturing forth on a quest, and in the realm of work the focus will be on aspiration in this exercise.  

Mercury is a very important planet for contemporary life and is often overlooked due to its own youth and changeability but then we must note at junctures like this, its great power over the human being. Its movement into Aquarius is noteworthy for this reason.
