Aries New Moon~27/28th March 2017: Burn baby burn!


“She’s mad, but she’s magic. There’s no lie in her fire.” ~ Charles Bukowski

The fire that is madness and magic, the fire of creativity in us, the fire of our desires burn bright with SEVEN planets in fire signs. Yes people! The astro is on fire! Sizzling, raw and primal…a certain madness and mayhem lurks in the air!

Oh, oh- the New Moon in Aries is conjunct Venus retrograde and that means that set intentions related to MONEY and LOVE. Of course this will have much to do with planetary positions in your natal chart, but I would say that these two motifs will play out heavily in the collective consciousness.

So I was talking all madness and mayhem, love the alliteration! But then what else do you expect of Aries energy? And so many freaking planets crowding the dance floor. There is a track in my mind. Set the world on fire…David Bowie. I cannot stop thinking of him since the dream I had with him in there. I think we were standing under a canopy of stars, staring at infinity! My dream time is full of such anecdotes and meetings, conversations and eye contact. Fuck it drove me nuts before I learnt how to understand it and accept it. I cannot say control it, for I cannot control any psychic or dreamscape visions.

It’s obviously masculine- this energy, which is why Bowie even came up in my mind. Have to check his astro for more clues. But let me not divert off and leave this piece unwritten. Something about me and not finishing up…hardcore wounds there. But I’m working on it.

Aries- what of them? They are the pioneers and trailblazers of the zodiac! Aries is the HEAD and is associated with BIRTH! But, but, but…there is a certain obstinacy and stubbornness about this sign that can lead to much problems.

A lot of people who consult with me are complaining of head related issues and please be careful yourself as well. There could be headaches and other head related issues that could crop up. I have successfully used numbers, switchwords and Energy Circles to combat headaches. Write 160 HZ AND 53 on your left arm and E=15 at the base of the nape of your neck with a blue pen. Works brilliantly. Feel the blue colour of the pen enter your bloodstream and instantly spread a coolness. You can call upon the Medicine Buddha in case you have some severe health complications.

I would like to suggest BHRAMARI PRANAYAMA to all of you. Please start the practice and you will see how this will help you deal with the fiery stress that could become too hot to handle. I had described how to practice the asana, but it is just making the article bigger than it needs to be, so please google it and watch videos to get a hang of it.

Now if possible, do this pranayama in the woods. I can tell you that you will feel like a new person after this. Just focus on the OM that you are humming is directly oscillating to the AUM of the Universe. To simplify it, just know that your sound is intrinsically connected to the hum of the Universe!

There is so much Aries energy in the air with five planets in this fire sign! Mercury, Venus, Uranus, the Sun and Moon are all here for this astral alignment. Let us run through the Aries archetype! This sign represents the EMPEROR card in the Tarot! The Patriarch!

Usually the Emperor represents a powerful and exemplary leader who is responsible for the welfare of the masses. The Emperor is no demagogue; in fact he is the benevolent father and if you internalise this archetype, then look to acknowledge your potential of mastery. Try to understand where you play the Emperor role and in whose life? I think here the Emperor is telling us to take OWNERSHIP of our own existence! Enough is enough! There is no messiah coming. We are the creators of our lives. Yes that is big responsibility, but it is also an inevitability. If there is any problem you need to address, look within to find answers at this time. Depend on you and it will work out. YOU ARE THE RULER, THE RULED AND THE RULING! Then where is the separation? Integrate this inner sovereignty in your meditation and the rest will fall into place.

Another thing which can be really beneficial to people who seek to use this fire energy would be to perform a HAVAN. Look up the link I have provided below to understand what this is and then figure out how you can simplify it to suit your needs. Neo pagans will have an idea. If you are confused, then contact me.

Very effective are FIRE BURST MEDITATIONS, especially for people with physical pain or deep emotional trauma. Focus on the part which is painful. Bring full awareness there, continue deep breathwork and then light a ball inside your body, on the pain. Feel a small flame of light burning where you have the pain. For a wider area, visualise a larger flare. But remember to notice that this internal fire has a bluish tinge and does not feel hot. It feels warm, but NOT HOT! Feel these flames setting fire to the pain. Watch the pain burn away to ashes. Watch it with your internal eye. Then after the pain has been burnt away, thank the flame and the Universe and remember to thank the pain! Yes that pain taught you so much. That pain is your karmic friend. So please thank that pain with sincerity. If you want to know more about how to practice this meditation, email me. It is very effective with chronic pain and psychological ailments. You can even do this for someone else. You can use FULL-IMMUNITY-BE-INFINITY after the visualisation is over and you have burnt all the pain with your mind.

If this Aries New Moon is getting you angry or resentful, because you’re trying so hard to be NUMBER 1, then you can chant- BE-QUIET-SHUT-UP, or write it with blue pen on your left wrist. 55 65 569 is also very effective to control anger. Write this on your body or write it in a piece of paper and carry it in your wallet. Aries energy is very assertive and make sure you do not get caught in the lower vibrations. Things can get nasty. But one thing is sure- we will have a lot more energy. You can channelise it and make it work for you in multiple things- at work, with your spouse and in bed. Yes you can effectively use this energy to set fire to your sheets. Lol! Just don’t channel the selfishness and I’m Khaleesi, the-mother-of-fucking-dragons attitude! Don’t unleash your dragons on us…pretty please!

Now let us talk about the ADVENTURE that is coming our way! Fuck, I love a good adventure! There is a certain exciting escapade coming our way and it packs a heavy punch- sensually and financially. Since the retrogradation always connotes the internal journey, I would say we will be looking at questions like what money means to us? How we spend it? What are our inherent, deep rooted opinions about money, etc, etc. Also questions about love will surface…what does love mean to us? How do we quantify love? Do we even understand love? As a collective? As individuals?

If you are distressed and lonely, I would suggest visit animal shelters and think of fostering and then maybe adopting. Bringing in a furry companion might be the start you need and with all the Aries newness you could reinvent yourself. You could go Vegan, you could decide to concentrate on the NOW and let go of fears…everything is on the table!

Saturn(Maturity, growth, restriction, responsibility) is in Sag(Passion, wanderlust, ! Fire again! What do we poor mortals do with so much fire? Depending on where this is falling on your chart, you might be facing disappointments and learning hardcore Saturnian lessons. I have worked with many people and their Saturn issues- Sade Sati or Saturn return and one thing I can tell you that what Saturn wants you to learn, you will learn…no matter what! Come hell or high water.

Oh are you aware that Saturn is also about to freaking go retro on us? Yes from 6th April to Aug 26! And this time the FUTURE is ours to plan. Saturn will level the playing field with doses of karma, yes, but there will be solidity in whatever sticks. Ficgure out what is working and stick with it.

My natal chart has Saturn sitting with Mercury in Leo and my mind has always been Leonine! Filled with creative thought and with Saturn sitting there, I faced a lot of issues trying to bring my creative expression to the surface. It took a while, but it happened.

There is a CARDINAL T SQUARE that I have already discussed. Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter are forming it and this brings SEVEN PLANETS IN CARDINAL SIGNS which govern creativity! The Cardinal signs are active, moody, starters but hate finishing up, know how to pick themselves off the floor and continue and are often positioned as leaders.

So if anything, the astro is screaming- ACTION! Get the fuck off your couch and get doing whatever the fuck tickles your imagination! This is not the time for planning…it is the time for action.

I am suggesting a Sanskrit mantra which you could recite to invoke ACTION in your life. You can chant this to create your dream opportunities and manifest your heart’s desire.

Mantra: Shanti Mantra 
Om Saha Naavavatu
Saha Nau Bhunaktu
Saha Veeryam Karavaavahai
Tejasvi Aavadheetamastu Maa Vidvishaavahai Om


There are so many other aspects that I would like to talk about, but not in this article…will continue later…

I leave you with one of my favourite songs from Tagore.

Purify my life
with the purging touch of fire
Purify my life
With your blessings of searing pain
Make it pure like the gold
That passes the test of fire

Take unto you my mortal form
Make it a lamp of your divine abode
Let the flame of my song glow through night and day

The slightest of your touch on the dark frame of night
Let it spark a new star one after another
To illuminate the darkness

Let my vision be cleansed from all darkness
Whither alights my gaze may it see the light
Let my pain be ablaze and rise above despair

*Another version by Anandamayee Majumdar:

Your flaming touch, let it blaze my heart
Purify this life of mine
Clarify this life of mine
Simplify this life of mine
Glorify this life of mine; atoning, as I burn.

Lift my soul, lift my heart, a blazing torch of light
Glowing in the sky with stars that shimmer in the night
Melody, let it sear, forever, as I burn

Impel my layers of dark, let your hands alight

Kindling stars awake, evoking them with light.

May darkness disappear from all my soul and sight
Deluding senses with sanctifying light
Agony, let it sear, forever, as I burn.

Animal Activism as a SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

Do you feel very close to animals? When you see images of hurt animals, do you feel their pain? Will you always answer to an animal in need? No matter what! Do you have companion animals you cherish and love as family? And hope you don’t just buy pedigree animals for social status then keep them chained in your lawns or cages?

See if you are an animal empath, then you cannot FACE ANIMAL CRUELTY. You physically, emotionally, spiritually feel pain. And I don’t mean superficial pain. DEEP HEART-WRENCHING, SOUL CRUSHING PAIN. You will be howling on the floor after you’ve even started documentaries like COWSPIRACY and others. I am one such ANIMAL EMPATH. The minute I make connection to an animals, its like I am locked into her eyes. I can sense her morphological field and FEEL ALL HER EMOTIONS.

You know ANIMALS have brought me CLOSER to my HIGHER TRUTH! Do you believe it? Or are you thinking that I am talking shit? Listen yes I have helped a few animals in my childhood, like regularly feed and pet them, give them blankets,  get them vaccinated…helped an injured crow once too. But essentially I was a selfish brat living in my own la-la land.

Then I met my SPIRIT GUIDE. My first cat- Moof. They say that when you no longer cry for the past and can speak about it without feelings, you have healed. I can proudly say that each memory of tragedy in my past only brings more empathy for that person(me) suffering it. I can see the events unfold and NO I DON’T CRY. I have stopped….many, many years ago. I have healed myself from a truly devastating relationship in my teens and today I feel nothing but empathy for all the people involved, included the person I was involved with. Just catharsis. All of my past is now neatly categorised into files in my mind palace. Hahahaha. Sounds too left brain? Trust me, I’m not. But I have learnt to get things ORGANISED over the years. Too many bloody mistakes. All except that one memory.

Moof’s death. He left me after being with me for only two years and four months. I lost everything that day…16th March, 2011. The hardest day of my life and what followed was torture. I cannot explain this to you. Maybe you think why all this fuss about a cat? But you see, he was not a cat to me. He was my baby. He was my EVERYTHING.

He was the first that opened my HEART CHAKRA and I can never thank him enough for this. After he came into my life, it felt like MAGICK! He activated my compassion like never before and he will always be my baby.

Anyway, this strong activation can happen to you if you let it. If you ask an ANIMAL RESCUER or CAREGIVER if they feel MAGICK every single time they can rescue an animal. When they can treat it and feed it and when finally, the animal is homed…they feel BLISS!!! True bliss.

I have met some very passionate animal rescuers and they have found this meditation, their piece of heaven. For when you rescue and home an animal, you have invited GOD into your life. For what else is that animal in front of you, but a piece of heaven?

You know I am afraid to use the word GOD. I mean whatever you might call it- SPIRIT, VIBE, CONNECTION…The animals are your connection to the Earth! And what better way to become an Earth protector?

ANIMAL RESCUE IS SEVA, it is SPIRITUAL WORK. It is as important as meditation, if not more. According to Vivekananda, SEVA IS THE ONLY WAY TO FIND GOD! So when you throw a stone at the dog, you throw a stone at nature. For when you drive over puppies, you drive over LIFE. No matter how much puja you do. If  you see a hungry animal and don’t feed it, you starve your soul.

I care for twenty animals, so I know how difficult it can be. My friend Sameer in Lonavla has a sanctuary of about a hundred animals and ask him, has he not found life? Has he not found meaning. Yes it is HARD. Animals get sick, they get injured. It is so difficult to watch, but ANIMAL RESCUERS DO IT DAILY.

ANIMAL RESCUERS are TRULY PLUTONIAN- touched by LIFE AND DEATH…BEING FOREVER TRANSFORMED. So will you visit a local shelter and see if you can make a connect? Especially if you are going through tragedy. They are the best healers.

In fact you can even connect to animal spirits through the internet. For instance you can call upon the spirit of the wolf, the eagle, the whale…anything. You can stare at the image of the animal whose energies you seek to channel and concentrate. It works better if you find the attributes you seek and then focus on them, say loyalty(dog), horse(majestic), hummingbird(rebirth)…you get the gist. It works very well for me. And if you look for signs, then see which animal pops up. You might need to invoke that particular ARCHETYPE to address and figure our issues of your own psyche.

If you wish to contribute to Sameer’s sanctuary, please get in touch with me. He even cares for Emus, donkeys, buffaloes…basically any animal that needs to be rescued in Lonavla and around.thumb_big_other_cfbf6f51f48cbfde71163865a8238cf3
