Maha Shivratri and Meditation

We should know what is the meaning of Shivratri and why we celebrate Shivaratri . We live in this universe on the planet earth. Earth is part of solar system and we have seven planet. Earth ,mars , mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn are moving around sun and moon revolving around earth . In Vedic Astrology these planets are considered as GOD's because they emit energy and everything in this universe on the basic level is energy. Mostly people think that these are just rocks which are moving around but they forget that these rocks which are moving are Gods of life on earth. Each planet has its vibrational effect based on their nature. These all planetary energy exist in everything. They influence each and everything on earth whether it is living or nonliving beings. We all are energy whether living or nonliving. In astrology moon is the mind and closest heavenly object to the earth that is why moon have more impact on human psychology.

Maha Shivratri is a rituals performed on the 14th night of the New Moon, in the month of Phalgun (Feb/March),This is a night when we worship to “the Great Lord” Mahadeva, the King of the yogis, the guru of gurus. On Maha Shivaratri it is traditional to stay up all night, with our mind immersed in devotion for Lord Shiva and immersing the mind in the energy of Shiva. Shiva is zeroness shiva is the ultimate power from which everything is created and everything will destroyed. We all come from there and we will go there after death.

Shivratri is related with phase of moon every month, on the 14th night the moon in its lowest waning phase due that our mind activity is less and to connect with GOD our mind should be clear regarding daily thoughts. In this day moon is waning it reduces mind activity because of this it is very easy to connect with the lord shiva or awakening to higher levels of consciousness. On Maha Shivaratri everyone has the potential to awaken to the highest consciousness possible. On Shivaratri you can awaken the five parts of your brain; the parietal, the frontal lobe, the right and left hemispheres, the occipital lobe, and top of the brain, along with the mid brain.

Maha shivratri is a special time when we can do remedy even the worst karmas can dissolve and we can gain extraordinary boons for wealth, health and power. Lord Shiva directly interferes with and removes our difficult karmas, i.e. pain or dissatisfaction around money, health or relationships. Even the worst of karmas can be remedied, by going back to the source energy, we can get extraordinary boons for wealth, health and power. It is only possible on the Night of Shiva.

It is easy to do meditation on 14th night of the new moon every month.

Lord shiva known as Lord of transformation. In Hindu mythology the story of churning ocean of milk in which poison came out ''Halaha'', which no one to drink. It was Lord Shiva who drank that poison after that he also known as ''Neelkant''. The message behind this story is that, when we start doing analyses ourselves it only poison come out from us. How much we are greedy, hate, jealous from other and what not, but until we accept this or drink this poison of ourselves we can not transform or can not connect with Lord Shiva. So to connect with Lord Shiva we need to clear out, our poison so that we became pure, until we can not free of negative traits no one can attain blessing of Lord Shiva.

Rahu (North Node) in 1st and Ketu (South Node) in 7th House axis in Astrology

Rahu (North Node) and Ketu (South Node) in astrology are the demons who want to taste the nectar of the world, for that they can do anything. In hindu mythology story of churning ocean of the milk is the which related with our subconscious mind. Rahu (North Node) and Ketu (South Node) are lunar node which play very important role in evolving the human conscious, there is always in our mind a internal dialogue going on what is right or what is wrong, Rahu (North Node) ,  Ketu (South Node) are the confusion, illusion, smoke and split thought of the mind. They always helping in to evolve consciously. They are always in the axis they always 180 degree apart.

Rahu (North Node) is the head which want to eat it is obsessed, it is our inner present life desire with we born. Rahu (North Node) is obsession for those things where it placed in the chart. Ketu is the body without head it is our past life experience of life, it is already filled for those things, detachment, disinterest for those thing where it is placed in the chart. Although they are not the physical planet but they are the most influential forces in the chart, it is the Rahu/Ketu axis that the main force of karmic desire can be seen. So what happened when Rahu/Ketu axis fall in the 1st and 7th house. House is the area of life. Rahu (North Node) placement in the house shows the area of life in which we need to develop mentally and Ketu (South Node) shows the area of life where we withdraw ourselves.

Summary:  Rahu (North Node) in 1st house is obsessed!!! about the identity and Ketu (South Node) in 7th house indicates detachment from spouse and relationships are strained.

1st house is the house of identity, physical body, appearance, overall general health. And seventh house is the house of other people, spouse, and dealing with others. Rahu is head without body. Rahu in 1st house shows the person may have big head. They may have broad forehead and well proportionate facial apperance.

Here Rahu is obsessed with their own identity and Ketu withdraw from others. Rahu (North Node) in 1st house (Rahu (North Node) in Lagna) these people think no one understand them. Here the native withdraw from others because other people criticize them too much. These people like to define their personality their own way. they don't like someone else define their personality. Rahu is rebellious force the native don’t like other people criticism and make themselves alone and unusual in behavior and they try find the answer about their own identity. Because of this they suffer in married life, initially the native suffer due to compromise with the partner but after sometime they did not feel satisfied with their own spouse and may wander. Ketu is a planet greatly involved in the spiritualization process, and the 7th house primarily stands for spouse and relationships. Ketu in the 7th house usually indicates that the spouse, may be a difficult person with some problems and relationships are very strained. But with time these people learn how to live alone or live in a solitude, this nature make them to introspect and learn about themselves. If unevolved the native can be very egocentric, but if evolved the person is very spiritual. These people need to listen others to overcome their shortcomings, and try to self understand about their shortcomings and should improve themselves.

With time they learn to develop their own initiative and believes in own personal power. these natives relied too much on other people in the past, and has been dependent on or dominated by others, Now they explore thier own destiny, through his own efforts and his own actions, they will gain the confidence and self-reliance they needs. Life put them into situations where they need to act under their own will. they should develop a personality that the public identifies as being individual and they needs to take a personal stand on things.

Ketu (south node) in 7th house makes person's overly idealistic image of a partner. ketu is criticize things where it sits, due to their idealistic expectation from partner Marriage get disturbed. 
As these people grow they signifies their personal values are more important than general public or partnerships. Individuality is self-propelled and they did not not take heavy partnership responsibility. In reality, the partnership activities are often a drag for them in many ways, but they have to learn to cope with that. Strong aggressive tendencies are developed, and the personality can be action-oriented.

These lunar nodes indicate past life's. those people who have Rahu in 1st and Ketu in 7th house that, shows that these individual submerged his identity in the affairs of others in past lives. Marriage and partnerships are so deeply rooted in his way of doing things that his search of self is constantly viewed through other people's eyes. He therefore allows their thoughts and opinions of him to influence his own sense of identity. Ultimately they must come out of the bondage of trying to be all things to all people, and, in the light of his own singular vibration, establish who They really are. They must escape from living in the shadow of other people's lives. These people must learn ultimately how to lead gracefully the role of leadership.

To achieve happiness in the current life, they must learn how to balance equally his own needs with those around him. they must deliberately try not to rush his own growth and independence. 

Rahu in (North Node) Aries and Ketu (South Node) in Libra sign Axis:  

The sign show the psychological thinking in how  we think, temperament and according to that we take action or behave.

Rahu (North Node) in 1st house Aries sign:

Rahu (North Node) in Aries is very impatient, eager, child like, rahu already child like here in aries sign it became more child like, very competitive with others, rahu is very courageous and not hesitate to go forward and take daring action. Rahu (North Node) is very self assertive, progressive independent and stand on their own conviction.
  Rahu (North Node) in Aries sign sign shows the person is pioneer in a sense to be innovative to be inspiring, independent they come to learn how to be independent and develop their own self-awareness. In past life the native was very indecisive not able to develop its own self will, here the soul is to develop to of self conscious on the most basic level, and how to come out from confusion by developing one ‘’mindedness’’. as these people are very soft hearted the biggest lesson for these people in this lifetime is how to make his head rule his heart. As such they are very go getter makes things happen and can be very creative if they learn to sit in one place.

They need to be careful not to be reckless, careless, impulsive self-centered and Impatient with others. Rahu always amplify the energy in which sign it is sitting. They know how to get things because mars is very competitive sign. These people act first and think later, they are more self interested and self inspired. 

Ketu (South Node) in 7th house Libra sign:

Ketu (South Node) in Libra shows that in their childhood or in past lives there has been to much emphasis on learning on others and letting run life by others, they are highly susceptible to flattery, they judge their happiness by the success or failure of those close to them. They don’t like to live alone, they are not confident enough and confused by the other people needs with their unrealized desires which makes them susceptible to depression. Ketu in Libra Shows these people are good in diplomacy with employees, good in cooperating with others creating beauty and harmony.

But now here is time come for these people to learn and must take decision their own will whether they are right or wrong. growth comes through self own experience. they must learn to overcome their sensitivity to all others disharmonious needs of those around them. as the time pass they become self aware of their own thoughts. thus these natives will achieve their greatest potential after they learn to serve willingly without desiring any reward beyond their own self growth

But they need to be careful not to get into negative side of Libra sign, these being dependent on others, giving power away to others, over compromising.  
We all have some immaturity in our mind; Rahu is mainly obstruction in areas of life where we are most immature. It just wants us to teach a life lesson by making a person mature and evolved consciously. Ketu is maturity, overconfidence, when we are overconfident we make mistake. Ketu teaches don’t be overconfident. We should try to listen and learn from others, so we can improve ourselves
