Transits for the week of March 5th – March 11th 2012.
Jyotish (Vedic astrology) predates Western astrology and many consider it to be more precise and accurate. My weekly updates are based on your Jyotish rising sign, but could be viewed from your Sun or Moon sign as well as your Navamsa. As always, individual birth chart and chart specific details will modify an individual’s experience. For more information about your Jyotish rising sign, contact me here.

Aries: Ease into the week. Issues, insights and concerns with children, romance, passion and fiery intelligence could spark something. Watch being critical; turn that onto the Self and start healing the mind. Watch emotions, depression, confusion and blaming others. Take time to meditate. This is a time to learn and grow in terms of relationships and Self. Clean your house and re-kindle self passion.
Taurus: Your heart and home are full of passionate creative energy. Thoughts turn to healing. Work on wounds of your inner child. Step up the healing regimen. Re-examine relationships and get rid of what’s not working. Take time for silence, processing and internal reflection. Intellect may be sluggish and out of sync. Learn the art of allowing. You are becoming more intuitive and refining your life. This is a time of radical self-care in terms of health and longevity.
Gemini: Let the mind expand this week. Look for insights in new places but don’t force it. Also, don’t neglect the effort it takes to transform. Spend more time dissolving and digesting the past, the hidden, the foreign. Use the space you gain from doing a mental and energetic house-clearing to get you forward in the outer, worldly realms. Work on liberating the mind.
Cancer: Your focus could turn to your mother, family, heart and home this week. Look below the surface. Don’t take the easy path, but you need to learn the Art of Unfoldment as well. Allow the heart to blossom slowly and the mind will follow. Transform your mind into your guru. You are gaining tools for emotional advancement. Do EFT. You are growing on the inside, give your Self credit for unraveling, even if it feels slow.
Leo: This is a time of self-actualization, materially and spiritually. Use your innate dynamism to cultivate new growth, new experiences and a deeper connection to pure knowledge. Relate through communing- verbally or intuitively. Watch your emotions early in the week and get deep rest in order to recharge.
Virgo: Pay attention to the details this week. Look for the big in the small. Stop and smell the roses. Touch the thorns and notice the intoxicating aroma. A rose is the perfect example of light and dark, pain and pleasure. Make this a practice. A ritual. Awaken to a path of finding comfort and transformation in the shadow and light. Your life depends on it. A lot of deep learning is happening, see it as your medicine.
Libra: Family storms are brewing- find a new way to sort it out. Rather than picking sides, find a new path instead. Quit being a friend to everyone, and be your own best friend. Use liberation and healing as your guru, even if it feels impossible right now. You are learning how to relate to others in new ways, bring this awareness back onto the Self!
Scorpio: The mind may be in dream state, rather than waking state of consciousness right now. Find a way to ground, refocus and get some clarity. Avoid falling off the wagon with old vices: coffee, mind games, shit talking and worse. Mind your manners and your words. Your outer depends on inner, as you are well aware! Manifest something bigger.
Sagittarius: You may be feeling like you just hit a wall. A certain perseverance will be needed right now as you connect to others and expand your career. Perhaps you’ve lost your focus and your drive. Tweak things, but don’t abandon ship. See this as a time to strengthen your foundation. Thinking, rather than doing, is not an option. This is a time to move things- both inner and outer. But baby steps will be more profitable than leaps and bounds.
Capricorn: Try not to spin your wheels. Courage is necessary in order to create abundance. Second guessing, procrastinating and putting things off until tomorrow only makes a longer to-do list. Take action, beyond the thought process. Put your focus into action. Refine the outer plan. Then refine it some more. You are discovering how to re-create your Self right now and how to make this an offering.
Aquarius: Redefine your relationship with money. Make it a spiritual practice and clean up anything that your parents may have passed to you about their money habits. It’s time to outgrow others’ stories and re-examine your own. Take a courageous step towards financial abundance today. Look under every rock, peek into every shadow and boldly go where you have not dared to go before. Make this your job.
Pisces: You may be living in a false reality right now. Have you noticed? Your heart and relationships may seem surreal and out of focus. Regain your composure and direct your lens back to the Self. There can be great healing right now, but it will require your action and perseverance. Though it may seem utterly tedious, now is the time to promote your Self and find a new sense of courage in life. Fall in love with your inner-child.
