“You will become a doctor”, my grandfather enounced while still gazing at the quadrants in my astrological chart. “But I haven’t opted for science stream dada”, I said, dismissing his prediction as I was already in class twelve with a stamp of commerce in my name.
“I’m sure you will”, he reiterated his words with such certitude that it almost sounded like a prophecy from the sky.
And in the year 2015, I did adorn my name with a doctorate, in management studies though.
“The rays of light, then, come from the stars and planets, which are surrounded by their own magnetic and gravitational fields influencing this light. The Earth, then, receives this light”, says the book, ‘Light on Life’ by Hart Defouw and Robert Svoboda.
And my belief that we are nothing less than a tiny particle of energy floating in the universe sealed the very moment I read these lines. Astrology helps us to trace the unique spell this light casts on each one of us.
And we thought that there is just one solar system with planets revolving around the Sun! I mean, when it comes to Vedic astrology, it is believed that all the planets revolve around the Earth. So to speak, these varied size balls revolve around each one of us too – whoa!
It is believed that these planets have their own signification and accordingly they exert their influence on us, of course in different permutations and combinations depending on when and where we were born and their transit.
The Sun ─ this fireball rules the soul. Authority, power, generosity and grandeur ─ the king of the east direction sprinkles them on us like gold dust.
The Moon’s peekaboo affects our emotions. Next time when you feel too elated or too dull without any reason do look at the white pearl in the sky. The queen is sensitive but when it comes to imagination, nothing can outshine her.
Make way for the prince planet that rules our speech and intellect ─ Mercury.
Venus, the ruler of water fills its cups with luxury, love, pleasure and amusement.
The flower jasmine known for its intoxicating fragrance is also symbolic to Jupiter that radiates wisdom and power of judgment. “Guru’, this biggie is also called the greatest teacher of all time.
Saturn, the old school guy is disciplined and hard-working too. Oh wait; did I mention the perks it blesses you with? Sure your toils and moils are rewarded generously!
The hot planet and dreamland of astronomers – Mars, well, it has temper issues. Nonetheless, it connotes courage and a fighting spirit. Stay cool buddy!
These miraculous circles in the universe give us an invisible push and the very next moment we find ourselves doing things we never imagined.
The profession we are in, the food we like, our emotions, relationships and the phases of life we pass through, everything is orchestrated by the movement of these planets and stars. Keep a close eye on them!
