What's Stopping YOU from Success & Happiness?

I think the whole idea of of seeking help from self analysis , mentor or a astrologer is to be able to understand what needs to be done to be successful and happy. It can range from how we perceive the world, how the world around us deal and engages with us. At the end of the day success and happiness cannot come to us till be engage in KARMA..eventually the influences and habits will guide us to take action and engage in life to be able to achieve what we want.


SO THE QUESTION IS
WHAT IS STOPPING YOU FROM HAVING SUCCESS OR HAPPINESS?
  1. Is it your Mind.
  2. Is it your habits.
  3. Is it lack of your skills.
  4. Is it the people around you.
  5. Is it the system around you.
  6. Is it inability to engage with people.
At the end of the day, nothing will changes unless we act and decide to make a change. If we are a drifter or on others mercy .. we cannot get what we want. If we want to have something then we need to be the person taking action and engaging in life. Being righteous is about doing the right thing and it is the toughest it is not my opinion or your opinion it is the right thing to do. We get so caught up in i am right or your are right that we forget that there is always a right way of doing things. 


BEST WISHES AND HAPPY JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE

Full Moon in Anuradha Nakshatra May 2016


On 21st may there is Full Moon in the sign of Scorpio with Retrograde Mars and retrograde Saturn. Full Moon is the halfway point in the monthly Moon cycle and it is harmonizing energy with Sun and Moon. Full moon is not a beginning point but it is midpoint of Sun and Moon opposition. So the Sun will be in Taurus and Taurus is about it's values, stability, following our own inner values your first which we inherit these from her family and then later we develop around value systems and if these values are solid structure like solid foundation in life then they give us support. This is why you're close possessions are reflection of your values of what you value. Moon in Scorpios is opposite of Taurus, where we question our values, solid structures and core principles. In scorpio things are something more restless, stressful and the fear of those things that we cannot control things that are beyond our control. The Scorpio theme of restlessness and imagined fear and worry about those things that we can not control of family and friends around us. Taurus is solid, stable and fixed energy of life, but this is an illusion of stability and structure that we sense in Scorpio. So when the moon is exalted in Taurus because it calms down the mind and it's debilitated in Scorpio because mind is restless. So Sun in Taurus is trying to strengthen the emotions and stabilizing emotions by aspecting Moon in scorpio.

Scorpio is a Sign of emotions and drama so that we can then stabilizing and go deeper into what's below the surface. On the surface of the water there's a lot of waves, below the surface it's calm and peaceful water (emotions). So we need to sink down into the heart in order to connect the true source of of emotion which is love true source of all emotions. Love is the source of all emotion. Scorpio sign is very devotional sign once Scorpion get over their fear in the heart. So Full Moon in scorpio is going to be facing these lessons. Full moon in Scorpio brings that contrast of taurus qualities that says it's good to have this material comfort and consistency but you need to go deeper literally into the scorpio principle to feel truly stable.


This Full Moon happen with retrograde Mars and retrograde Saturn. Mars in Scorpio is powerful and now is because it's retrograde it also is opposite to the Sun is so is power and will come together and share. Mars in scorpio have power to manipulate and influence others. However, these two retrograde planets with Full Moon is triggering lot of tension that can be flash out in feelings of anxiety, confusion with family and friends. The full moon in Scorpio is it's sign of debilitation in other words some of the down side of the emotions comes through in this sign, like negative emotions. The conjunction of Mars and Moon known as Chandra Mangala yoga in Vedic astrology. This yoga in emotional water sign Scorpio amplifies some of the less desirable qualities of the mind. Like being overexcited, irrational actions, anger towards women and generally destructive tendencies. So you may suffering from anger due to mistakes or having problems being misunderstood by others on this full moon in Scorpio.


This Full Moon happens in Anuradha nakshatra. This deity empowering Anuradha is Mitra, the Vedic god of devotion and friendship. This nakshatra teaches us to a solidity our devotion and friendship with others. Anuradha nakshatra is a mysterious emotional, and deep desirous sign. Which ultimately leads into higher spiritual devoted life. So on this Full Moon relationships can become more vulnerable and passionate. Doubts on relationship and destabilize feelings will be more on this day. So everyone have to be very careful at this time not taking harsh decisions, try to adjust, and try to working together and it is useful time to find your own voice to empower yourselves by communicating needs and listening to others.


On Thursday, May 19 Venus leaving Aries and entering Taurus. Venus rules Taurus a planet in its own sign is strong. But there are a some of problems. Venus getting closer and closer to the Sun in other words entering deep combustion. So significations of Venus is weakens and its potential for creating benefits reduced. Venus enters Taurus it moves into position to be directly across the zodiac from its enemy Mars which is retrograde on the other side of the Scorpio sign. Mars is strong in its own sign Mars and channeling the energy of retrograde Saturn which accompanies. So Mars has even more malefic by aspecting on Venus. So Venus already weakened due to combustion and plus direct aspect of Mars on Venus it is more damaging. Venus has a hard time for the next couple of weeks. Compromise of agreements will be harder to achieve, your love and romance will hit a rough patch and financial markets will be stressed.

Power of Retrograde Planets Astrology



Retrogrades are probably the most confusing aspects in astrology. Many people born with many retrograde planets in their birth-chart. In astrology a retrograde planets shows the energy is not behaving normally and therefore retrograde planets disruptive in general life. Depending on the sign and house position and aspects of a retrograde planet would add more flavor to the Interpretation. With retrograde planets in natal chart, people sometimes look to the past to find solutions for their current problems. Retrograde planets do not work to their best potential. It is not that they don’t work well, but the individual with the retrograde planets does not apply them much in his current life. Instead, he is trying to fit the present world into his past encounters. For example, with Jupiter Retrograde tend to avoid teachers and questions about belief system, because of past life experience related with Retrograde Jupiter was not good. 


Some people have multiple Retrograde planets, which can bring powerful karmic lessons to that person and that bring the past life in mix with present life.  The more Retrograde planets a person has, the more confusing his life becomes and he grows more introspective and develops within himself a separate life which can be isolated to the outer life. In birth chart, Retrograde planets repeat previous incidents or issues from former lives which were not fully finished with. Retrogrades occur on an subconscious level, and if an individual turns his consciousness levels then that person will come to discover a great awareness and how to deal with it. Since retrograde planets do not behave normally as do direct planets, interpreting them can be confusing. The meanings of Retrograde planets are determined by the sign and house they occupy, along with the aspects they make. Retrograde planets work differently and need extra work and understanding. Retrograde planets brings past experience or past knowledge of the previous life in the present life.


Here are some example of famous people who have retrograde planets and become millionaire and they are Steve job and Zukerberg Mark.


This is the Birth Chart of Steve Jobs


He was Leo ascendant and he had two retrograde planets Mercury in Capricorn (serious thinking) and Jupiter in Gemini (experimental sign).  Mercury is the karaka of speech and communication.  Since Mercury was retrograde Steve would spend hours in practice, he became so good , Steve Jobs is considered to be the best. A person can take this information in 2 ways, I am not good i should channelize myself to other skills or I am not good, but i should work hard on it to be good at it. Since he was a deep thinker due to mercury and experimental due to Jupiter he was able to come up with amazing products and designs.


This is the Birth Chart of Mark Zuckerberg


He is Aries ascendant and he have three retrograde planets; Saturn in Libra, Mars in Libra, in 7th house of business and Jupiter in Sagittarius sign in 9th house of higher vision. Saturn is the planet of commitment and long terms goal, Mars is the planets of action and personal strength,  Jupiter is the planet of higher vision and direction of life. Mark was able to bring up Facebook against all odds, retrograde Mercury makes him to think differently and re validate his thinking again and again. If we do it right we come back with better answers with less errors.


These are two amazing people with retrograde planets who provide so much to the world. Astrology can help you understand your natural tendencies which can channelize for your advantage or fix them for success and better life.  Steve Jobs was a rebel & explorer of new techniques, he was able to influence the world as very few did. We should use Astrology to understand where are our strength are for to better understand about yourself.

Vata Pitta Kapha (Body Type) in Ayurveada


Ayurveda is the science of life. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word means science of life. Ayu means life or daily living, and Veda is knowing. Ayurveda, therefore, is the healing branch or medical side of the system of yoga. “Ayur” or “life” in Ayurveda is described as the harmony of the higher Self (Atman), mind (manas), prana, senses and body. This idea of life is not merely physical but includes all aspects of our being and shows the broad and integral scope of Ayurvedic theory and practice. Ayurveda helps the healthy person to maintain health, and the diseased person to regain health. The practice of Ayurveda is designed to promote human happiness, health and creative growth. Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that is indigenous to and widely practiced all over the world now a days. Ayurveda’s goal is to achieve health by working towards balance and harmony. Prevention is emphasised over cure. Ayurveda recognises the importance of physical balance, emotional release, mental health, environmental mindfulness and spiritual progression in the total health.

The Law of Karma and Ayurveda:

For every action you take there will be a reaction in the future. The cause and effect is the basis of the law of Karma in the universe. This law of karma also important in Ayurveda. Whatever is our health condition there is a reason for it. A disease cannot arise without a cause. If one has a Pitta (heat) disease like the infection, a pitta cause must exist in such things as exposure to heat or eating of pitta causing foods, excessive anger and other Pitta-increasing actions. Everything has a reason and if we discover that reason we can correct the cause that brings us pain, disease or sorrow. Nothing happens that is uncaused or not produced by our own actions. This principle of causation means that we bring about and are responsible for our own condition in life, physical or mental. It means that we possess the power to correct it by remedial measures. As we have made all that we are, we also have the power to correct it. This principle of responsibility gives us the basis for correcting any wrong actions. It shows us that what we have spoiled we can also make well again or even better in time. It gives freedom through which we can arrive with our own action. Ayurveda teaches that the a person themselves must take an active part in the treatment, for it is only the individual that can change their own chain of cause and effect of any condition. Reversing this process of causation, we can go back to the normal healthy life. This return process is the process of reintegration leads to balanced and harmonious life with yourself.

According to Ayurveda, the five fundamental elements that make up the universe--space (Akasha), air (Vayu), fire (Agni), water (Apu) and earth (Prithvi)--also make up the human physiology. Looking at the elements from the point of view of what they do in the physiology, rather than what they are, Ayurveda describes three biological humors or psychophysiological energies called doshas. There are three doshas, called Vata, Pitta and Kapha, and each is mainly a combination of two elements. Vata dosha is made up of space and air. Pitta dosha is a combination of fire and water. Kapha dosha is made up of water and earth.

Dosha means “that which changes” because doshas are constantly moving in dynamic balance, one with the others. They are primary life forces or biological humours. The doshas are the biological energies found in the human body and mind. They govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfilment. The doshas are subtle, they cannot be perceived directly in the body. However their presence is visible through distinct qualities and actions – ranging from biological functions to personality traits.

Each one of us is born with a mix of Vata, Pitta and Kapha that makes us our body constitution and determines our strengths and weaknesses. While one dosha usually dominates in most individuals, a second dosha may also have a strong influence. This is referred to as a dual-doshic constitution. For example, a Vata-Pitta type will have Vata as the primary constitution but also embody strong Pitta characteristics. On the other hand, a Pitta-Vata type will identify more with Pitta characteristics, but also have strong Vata qualities. The least common constitutional type is known as “tri-doshic” or Vata-Pitta-Kapha. This refers to an individual who has an equal amount of all three doshas.

The doshas are dynamic energies that are constantly changing in season, in response to our actions, thoughts, emotions, the food that we eat, and any other sensory inputs that feed our mind and body. When we live in accordance with the nature of our doshic type, this means we make lifestyle and dietary decisions that balance our doshas, and we can have a healthy vibrant life. Nurturing your unique dosha nature is considered the direct pathway to fulfilment in life. For example, a person who suppresses an underlying creative impulse may create a deep-seated imbalance of their Vata dosha over time. When we do not live in harmony with our doshic constitution this can be due to unhealthy patterns of physical, mental and emotional imbalances, and dosha could be aggravated or stimulated. You can restore balance to the aggravated dosha by understanding your unique constitution dosha type.

So question how to know your doshas?

Each one of us has a different constitution. The key to Ayurvedic treatment is to know the main imbalances of the doshas and how to treat them. For maintenance of health, every person should understand their constitution. When examining the doshas, it is important to make a distinction between balanced and an imbalanced state.

Vata Dosha: The person with predominantly Vata in their constitution has a quick mind, lots of enthusiasm and many interests. Vata types are always on the go mentally and physically. Common signs of Vata imbalance include anxiety and bodily disorders related to dryness, such as dry skin and constipation. Signs of imbalanced Vata also include restlessness, lacking confidence, being disorganised, tendency to procrastinate, talking too fast and being “spacey” and ungrounded. Because they can be overactive thinkers they may be prone to depression, anxiety, insomnia, attention deficit disorder (ADD), headaches, low energy and obsessive compulsive disorders.

How to balance Vata Dosha: Calming the mind, practicing meditation, doing gentle exercises such as yoga, eating in a peaceful environment, following a regular daily routine, listening to calm music and having regular massages all help to balance Vata. Use warming and energising essential oils such as basil, black pepper, cinnamon, clove bud, and coriander seed and rosemary. It is important for Vata types to follow their creative and artistic passions.

Pitta Dosha: When the Pitta dosha is out of balance they can have deep seated emotional issues rooted in anger, fear, hatred and jealousy. They can become arrogant, hot-headed, loud and aggressive, judgmental and overly competitive. Pitta types are high achievers and very confident. They have a fiery temperament. There is a saying in Ayurveda that an imbalanced Pitta individual does not go to hell, they simply create hell wherever they go! Typically Pitta problems manifest in the body as infections, inflammation, rashes, ulcers, heartburn and fevers. Pitta individuals have a strong metabolism, but it can be aggravated by hot spicy food.

How to balance Pitta Dosha: By learning to meditate, engaging in calming activities, avoiding alcohol, caffeine and nicotine, spent with nature, and taking time to rest everyday, Pittas can remain balanced. Excessive Pitta should be treated with cooling and calming oils such chamomile, lavender, neroli, sandalwood, kus kus and vetiver. The person with balanced Pitta in their constitution are joyful, sharp intellect, confidence, charisma and much courage and drive. They are extremely ambitious individuals. Pitta types are high achievers and very confident.

Kapha Dosha: When the Kapha dosha is out of balance the person is prone to overeating. They are likely to suffer from bodily disorders such as obesity, sinus congestion and anything related to mucous. Typically they are considered the more mentally and emotionally unstable of the three doshas, therefore they are prone to lethargy, attachment and depression. They can be contented, they are often not able to say no, they can become possessive and often give up easily.

How to balance Kapha Dosha: You can balance Kapha by eating a Kapha-balancing diet, focusing on non-attachment in daily life, and changing in your daily routine. By engaging in physical activities. To balanced Kapha types they should use grounding and balancing essential oils such as cedarwood, sandalwood and vetiver. Excessive Kapha can be treated with warming and spicy oils such as Tulsi basil, black pepper, cinnamon, clove bud, coriander seed, ginger, turmeric and saffron. The balanced Kapha person naturally have good health and mental peace. Kapha types are warm, loving and gentle people. Kapha types have strong stamina, they are patient, forgiving and they are good listeners.
