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.

  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. 


Astrology can help you find your natural inclinations/talents. Which can speed up your path to success & happiness. Following are some of the resources that can help you understand yourself, mind and the world around you.

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.
