Anna Hazare and the Magnetar SGR 0525-66

Republic of India’s chart 26th Jan 1950; 10:15 am; Delhi has its Ascendant at 4.8 deg Aries. A deep space object  SGR 0525-66  is located in the Super-Nova Remnant (SNR) 0525-66.1, otherwise known as N49, in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Its  ecliptic position  is 4.2  deg Aries (J 2000) very close to India’s Ascendant…over which Uranus is currently transiting.

A soft gamma repeater (SGR) is an astronomical object which emits large bursts of gamma-rays and X-rays at irregular intervals. It is conjectured that they are a type of magnetar or, alternatively, neutron stars with an intense magnetic field - something on the order of a thousand trillion times stronger than the magnetic field on Earth.

 “Bearing in mind that Gamma radiation seeks to instigate a transitional situation, a collective surge for transmuting life on Earth results. Those personally connected to the SGR’s zodiacal location have a more difficult job. Somehow, they become unconscious provocateurs for those not getting the message. This inciting influence, though, is extended at the same time that they undergo the same process….
when everyone simultaneously encounters twists and turns never before experienced by humanity, that someone must take charge. That someone would be the SGR linked individual.” The Soul of the Sky; Philip Sedgwick

Is it surprising that an individual like Anna Hazare has suddenly appeared to lead a popular movement against corruption…and as usual the politicians don’t seem to get the message?!

Message of upcoming June 2011 Solar Eclipse

Central message of the 2nd June 2011  Solar Eclipse :

An avid pursuit of power and knowledge especially about the psyche and things hidden can lead to strength and wisdom replenished by a celestial downpour of spiritual consciousness and love but as a byproduct it can raise negative emotions and desires (in self or others) that fuel conflicts and disruptive processes. The urge to expand must then overcome frustrations, inhibitions and loss or separations.

A resulting change in socializing pattern is likely…Taking on fated commitments or breaking up…perhaps both. The end result is  a liberation from the ghosts of the past.

A need to accept all emotions

Today 23rd May 2011, Venus and Mars are conjunct in geocentric longitude at 8Ta. However, they begin a new (heliocentric) synodic cycle on 9th June 2011 at 2Ta53 which will last for about a year. This pair normally affects relationships and money matters. Those of us who have planets at 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 of Tauras, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are primarily affected.

The theme of this synodic cycle is  as follows:

There is a need to accept all emotions…even those that are painful. Rejection, denial or repression can never lead to mastery. And should we persist, the pain and suffering will increase. Help is at hand if only we are able to see that the one and only issue to overcome is our judgment of right and wrong, of white and black.

On why Krishna will be relevant now

Kali Yuga   "age of vice" is the last of the four stages that the world goes through as part of the cycle of yugas described in the Indian scriptures. Most interpreters of Hindu scriptures believe that earth is currently in Kali Yuga. Some, such as Swami Sri Yukteswar, Sri Aurobindo and Paramhansa Yogananda  believe that it is now near the beginning of Dvapara Yuga.

If we look at the table of yugas (  we can see that we are currently  in the Ascending Dwapara Yuga proper from 1900-3900 AD. In 2011 we are in the Kali subyuga of the Dwapara main yuga but this is  about to end  when we enter the Dwapara subyuga of the same main yuga (2100-2500). This can be loosely related to the change that many of us are expecting in the Mayan calendar.

Dvapara Yuga or Dwapara Yuga is the third out of four yugas, or ages, described in the scriptures of Hinduism. This yuga comes after Treta Yuga and is followed by Kali Yuga in the descending  part of the spiral of yugas. According to the Puranas the hero of Dwaapara Yuga was  Krishna .

There are two pillars of religion in the Dvapara Yuga: Kama and Artha.

All this should tell us why Kama and Artha and the gospel of the hero Krishna is going to be important in the coming period

The stages in a Hero's journey

Joseph John Campbell was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. His philosophy is often summarized by his phrase: "Follow your bliss."
Joseph Campbell in his book “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” describes the stages in an archetypal journey taken by Heroes of all cultures. Knowing where we are in this archetypal journey can remove any feelings of being lost.

Sensuality and Spirituality

"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time." Joseph Campbell
Sensuality, therefore , becomes a  path  for deepening one’s self-knowing, and in that way sensuality and spirituality are linked.
