Astroturf : Astrology helps individuals evolve

Picking up threads from the previous issue, it comes out that a purified mind is needed to have clarity in vision and thought. But for which, one may not be able to comprehend issues in hand in right perspective, and life may become subject to unwanted twists and turns. It is pertinent to note here that the way you perceive is how you negotiate the callings of life, which is subject to one’s state of mind, and hence the need to shape it well.

Bear in mind, whatever process one takes recourse to – religious or spiritual – the end result in mind is to evolve, which means transcending the limitations of mind and expand one’s scope of vision.  In turn, that prepares the ground for confidently attending to the callings of life, bravely facing the challenges in the way with ease and comfort.             

The obvious question now is: how to go about?  In religious process, you get into a devotional mode, eulogizing the attributes identified with a deity you focus upon. Immersed in those thoughts, your faith grows to a level whereby you begin to believe that the said deity will sail you through in life.  In this scheme of things, the deity is believed to be a reality different from you. So, a sense of duality, and thereby differentiation and divide prevails, which may turn you into a fanatic.  Yet, there are chances that some of the devout may go beyond those limits also.

In spiritual process, on the contrary, you straightaway get into a mental-reformation process. In this mode, you are within your own mind-self. You first come across your restive mind. If you do not pay attention to the inflowing thoughts, mind will settle down over a period of time. Towards the next course, you figure out your own inherent mind-trends — potentials as well as habit tendencies — which when identified and acknowledged could be corrected.  Reflecting upon fresh educative inputs, you then try to address infirmities and preconditioning of mind. Lord Shiva may come into your reckoning even in this process, but not as a form-God, rather symbolically portraying the realities of life. Through continued reflection, with time, these educative inputs become a part of your consciousness, which then begin to spontaneously outplay in your day-to-day conduct.  There is no scope for the sense of duality in this mode.

The paradox, however, is that often our ego does not let us dispassionately identity our own frailties, which unless addressed, will not let you evolve. Here, astrology comes handy. Let us now look at the astrological pointers of the case under study, warranting the attention of the person concerned. The main marker is the lagna lord Saturn tenanted in its own sign, but conjunct the Sun as well as combust Venus. In the first place, it implies a deep cast sense of insecurity and fear. The person has a negative mindset, having a vision restricted to his own self-beliefs. With his prismatic view, truth may, therefore, elude his attention on its first appearance. So, he may continue passionately pursuing his whimsical ideas, in the hope that eventually he may find ways and means to get his stand vindicated. When faced with a difficult situation, he shall have the tendency to shift the blame on others. He will not care to look into his own fault lines for necessary correction.   The person may go overboard trying to establish one’s superiority, even if it means denigrating others. And, because of a negative approach, he will never care for other’s sensibilities and concerns. So, he shall not be able get along with others, which includes his partner.  Second, he shall carry an emotional void, for the above reasons.

What further compounds his problems is that mind-signifying Moon occupies a Mercury owned sign Gemini, which is placed opposite fiery Mars.  This accounts for his mercurial temperament, who wishes to live on one’s own exclusive terms.  So long as someone agrees to his view points, he is taken as a true friend.  It is difficult for him to digest a contrarian view point, in which case gets distant from the person concerned.

If that would not be enough, intelligence-signifying Mercury is conjunct headless Ketu, which crosses path with mischievous Neptune.  This accounts for his insensible reasoning and judgment. Wisdom-signifying Jupiter, ill-disposed off to Neptune binds him to peculiar beliefs.To sum up, the above inherent mental limitations need to be addressed.  Otherwise, no matter what process you take recourse to — religious or spiritual — will do no good.
