This was recorded from a Facebook Live class. Trump has now changed from Rahu to Jupiter .. which could / should / May show some higher potential to come through. But how does Jupiter operate for him?

Donald Trump was just named the presumptive Republican nominee. Yet there are still enormous obstacles ahead for him to be even be accepted by that party, let alone be elected President.

His improbable rise has been shown by the transit of Jupiter through his first house, since July 2015, when he burst on the Political scene.

His Chart is a fascinating case study in the specifics of astrology, in this case the transit of Jupiter through his first house — and its influence on his persona and Natal Mars in the first house.

For his rise to be possible there needed to be many things in place, they include:
~ A weak field / Competitors unwillilng to hold him accountable
~ A complicit media fawning over him / entertained by him
~ The underestimation of his chances by party elders until it was too late
~ Several mid-level / weak candidates splitting the vote once the Primaries began.

All of these things have come together for him since the summer of 2015 when Jupiter entered his first house and went over his natal Mars, the Yoga Karaka in his first house and his SubDasa planet.

Unlike the Past,. in Trump’s Favor
In elections past, a majority candidate emerged to take down a fringe candidate, early in the process, one who earned a similar percentage as Trump. For example, Mitt Romney in 2012 quickly began to earn 50% or more in 2012, with New Gingrich earning voting percentages akin to Trump – with Ron Paul and Rick Santorum hanging out in the 5-10% range. This is normal.

Thus, even though Trump has barely gotten 40% of the vote, he has gotten close to 70% of the Delegates. This UNpopularity (within his own party) will be death of him as a General election candidate, and is showing up now as Speaker Ryan and other prominent Republican party members are still against Trump – former presidents and candidates will not endorse him or even show up to the Republican convention.

Foolhardiness and Overconfidence of Jupiter
One thing to understand about Jupiter, is he also can mask the truth for while, as we ride high, overlooking the underlying factors, as i see the media now doing with Trump – speaking as if he is “so popular” because he is “winning”,.. all the while overlooking these obvious numbers and fortunate circumstances.

His luck is about to change though, as Jupiter will move forward in early May and Trump will be challenged to be a “uniter” and rally this very divided party behind him. This will be no small feat, as Trump has created most of the divisions himself, and he is also riding high.
In the middle of August Jupiter will move into his second house and the circumstances will change. He will have a very tough battle on his hands where he will need to be accountable for his words and be facing battles from all directions, including within the Republican party itself.

Where Are You Going?
The Astrological Key to It All

It seems like the two most important questions of life are “Why am I here?” and “Where am I going?” The answer to the first question is better left to the realm of religion. But the second question…well, it almost seems that just as soon as we answer it things come up in life and we ask it again and again. “Where am I going” may be the most important question we ask ourselves, but we have had little guidance to find the answer—until now.

Astrology can be a tool that guides us and directs us, but only when we take it from just the practical realm and move into more spiritual directions. It needs to not merely provide answers from the stars, but to inspire us to look to the stars and beyond—to enlightenment. That’s exactly what you’ll find in The Complete Book of Spiritual Astrology by Per Henrik Gullfoss.

The Complete Book of Spiritual Astrology is not a list of character strengths and flaws, but rather gives new life and vibrancy to the study of astrology. It’s perfect for beginners, as it will give you a fantastic and wonderful introduction to the real essence of astrology as humanity’s tool on its voyage towards awareness and awakening. It will give experienced astrologers a completely new and amazingly simple yet precise way of using astrology. Unlike other books on astrology, The Complete Book of Spiritual Astrology will clearly show you how your birth chart indicates your spiritual and evolutionary journey during this life.

All the Basics, and So Much More!
The Complete Book of Spiritual Astrology includes a complete and thorough discussion of all the basic parts of astrology from a spiritual and evolutional viewpoint. You’ll discover what your soul aches to experience and express on its early journey, the gifts and challenges for this lifetime, and what you must master to achieve enlightenment.

What sets this book apart from others is the way everything is explained. Just look how the signs are discussed:

Aries: Power of Joy
Taurus: Transformation Through Beauty
Gemini: Understanding of Wisdom
Cancer: Power of Love
Leo: Transformation Through Joy
Virgo: Understanding of Beauty
Libra: Power of Wisdom
Scorpio: Transformation Through Love
Sagittarius: Understanding of Joy
Capricorn: Power of Beauty
Aquarius: Transformation Through Wisdom

You can easily see how concepts of power, transformation, and understanding cycle through ideas of joy, beauty, wisdom, and love. Each of these aspects is completely explored in this book. As you study, you will find that this book is thorough, well written, easy to understand, and at times even thought-provoking.

You’ll learn the meaning of each planet in each sign and see how it specifically relates to your birth chart. It specially focuses on your persona, your partnerships with others, your private life, and your professional life.

Get Out Your Pencils and Notebooks
You won’t just read The Complete Book of Spiritual Astrology, you’ll study it, take notes, and refer to it often. Virtually every page will give you new insight into the very essence of who you are, along with your most opportune direction in life, a direction that will lead you on a path of greater spirituality and personal enlightenment.

The Complete Book of Spiritual Astrology is truly that “breath of fresh air” on a subject that has become either “silly” to the debunkers or staid and dry to some practitioners. With this book astrology moves back to its true role of a spiritual science, helping followers master both time and themselves. The subjects here are as familiar but simultaneously unique. If you are new to astrology, it will show you just what astrology can really do and how it can help guide you on your spiritual path. If you are a professional, it will bring new life and direction to your readings…and to your own path in life.

The comparison between Eastern and Western forms of Astrology and timekeeping is the subject of this Video. It is not a video making predictions about the coming year based on Chinese new year.

So many people start out with a great love of astrology, and wanting to understand it in a holistic way. They buy an astrology book, then realize it is complicated and very hard to learn. Instead of something inspiring, astrology becomes one more thing that is confusing and frustrating. In my latest book, I have addressed this issue. I have gotten enormous experience teaching my Certification Course the last several years, and that insight has gone into this book.

I start from the very beginning, from the spiritual tradition itself. The truth is, that is where all the “astrological rocket sauce” is anyway. These spiritual truths transcend astrology, and give it meaning.

The Book is called“Yoga and Vedic Astrology – Sister Sciences of Spiritual Healing” – and it takes the complicated principles of Vedic astrology and makes them simple and digestible for everyone

Principles in this book can be put in your life right now, regardless of whether you study astrology or not.

In this book:

I first describe the sacred astronomy, which actually shows how the universe itself is the great cosmic being that creates everything. By the way, this is why all astrological systems work. You have forgotten the miracle of life on earth. I mean think about it, you are on a little rock, moving around a gigantic ball of fire at almost 70,000 miles an hour, right now!
Next, I describe the emergence of yoga, astrology and the other Vedic sciences from the scriptural/cultural tradition of India. I accomplish this by analyzing the ancient texts, from the Vedas to the two most important yogic texts: the Bhagavad-Gita and the yoga sutras of Patanjali. You will understand how this timeless wisdom was passed down from abstract teachings to practical methods that you can use in your everyday life.
Next, I connect those threads to spiritual structures like Chakras, elements, 3 Gunas (Body, mind, Spirit) and the other qualities of Samkya philosophy (the philosophy of Yoga). Understanding how your energetic bodies work and cooperate with each other is crucial to understanding what is exactly happening with astrology and the astrology chart. Most people have absolutely no idea how astrology works at all. Do you?

Then, I begin to describe astrology, as the science of karma, as the science of spirit taking form. This begins by mapping the same universal qualities of yoga to the astrological components. First, the planets and their relationship to the elements, the gunas, and universal principles they govern, are analyzed. These are the energetic factors of life, the seven rays of consciousness, the seven evolutionary forces.
Next, I describe the astrology signs of the zodiac as the sacred mandala through which the planets express themselves and through which our karmic mind unfolds. Most of us identify with the signs as the “feeling” of life.
Next, I outline the astrology houses from many different angles to bring specifics into astrological considerations. This shows whether that powerful Venus gives us a great job, a great house, or great butt! We can’t know the details until we learn astrology houses.
Next, I describe the 27 constellations (nakshatras) and how they work on a spiritual level. I explain each one in detail, and show how to approach each planet through them. The celestial zodiac refers to a deeper cosmic nature overlooked by other astrological systems, including Western astrology

Next I give an overview of the lunar nodes, the eclipse points, and briefly describe these very compelling karmic forces. The main attractions and repulsions in life come from the lunar nodes.
Next, I outline the major aspects and Yogas (planetary associations) and how to understand the way divine energy communicates within us. These specific connections show the complexities, great strengths and inner conflicts in life.
Next, I get into timing factors, to show how to actually read a chart and organize the information. This advanced material will help to take your understanding beyond just gathering information, and help you apply it.
Next, I give a couple example charts and give you chart reading templates so you can actually begin to approach your chart and understand your karma. I give two powerful case studies of both a general chart analysis, and an event in their lives shown by the timing factors.

This text is actually volume 1 in a series called “Essentials of Vedic astrology” – and serves as a companion to my very popular certification courses.

Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are in Leo now, bringing a lot of creativity and appreciation of beauty. But it is also hemmed between DB Mars and the Sun in Cancer, showing a lack of discipline. Also Rahu is in Virgo showing some confusion with details.

The moon will be full in Capricorn on July 31, 2015. This full moon happens in the Nakshatra of Shravana calm a ruled by Lord Vishnu. This full moon is the balancing point of the sun in cancer.
This full Moon in Capricorn is the balancing point of cancer, where the sun now resides. Cancer is where we tend to feel impractical, even childish. Capricorn is about practicality and maturity. All of these things sound quite nice, but in truth, we don’t usually want to be mature and rational.

Everyone does what they feel like doing, or what they hope is going to make them feel good. Those things have nothing to do with the Capricorn lesson, which is about what is most useful, what is most beneficial in the long term. What makes us feel good in the moment is often totally at odds with what will benefit us in the long run. These are important themes for the next several days.luna-plina-in-capricorn

One of the biggest lessons of Capricorn is “solitude”. In cancer we tend to cling to other people too much. In Capricorn we are challenged to be alone without feeling lonely. Most of us have a very hard time being alone without some form of distraction, or people to distract us.

Shravana Nakshatra
This full moon happens in Shravana Nakshatra. Shravana means “hearing”, And is ruled by Lord Vishnu, the one who governs the manifest world. There’s a theme of music, chanting and other forms of creativity on this full moon.

Nostradamus predicted the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the Credit Crunch in 2008 and the floods in New Orleans, as well as the Iraq War, the Twin Towers disaster and the devastating Tsunamis – and he foretold the future for decades to come.

Mario Reading presents Nostradamus in an entirely new light – he has prepared new groundbreaking translations of all Nostradamus’s quatrains that deal specifically with the future, with new, sharp and knowledgeable commentaries. Mario Reading’s startling discovery of Nostradamus’s dating system allows him to date the prophecies, and his translation and insightful interpretations reveal extraordinary and sometimes shocking predictions for the future. These predictions include the demise of the British Monarchy, the break-up of the European Union and Global War.

Nostradamus, the greatest diviner and scryer who ever lived, was born on 13th December 1503 in Provence, France. His prophecies have been continuously in print since his death on 1st July 1566, an event that he accurately foretold on the night before it happened.

Moon / Rahu Eclipse in Virgo

After the Sun / Ketu in Pisces Solar eclipse on March 20, we get the Lunar eclipse in Virgo. This lunar eclipse in Virgo acts as a contrasting point to the Pisces eclipse. The moon as our heart and mind, and the desire to “hold things together”, especially psychologically. Now, in Virgo, we are looking to hold together the structure of our life, down to every hairsplitting detail. The can be a lot of psychological pressure when the moon is in Virgo, And a worrisome nature can result. In addition, the North node Rahu is stressful – trying to accelerate our perceptions beyond the present moment, into the future. This usually does not feel so good, because no matter what we may perceive, we are still “always in the present”.

Eclipse in Nakshatra of Hasta

This Lunar eclipse happens in Hasta, symbolized by an open hand. This is the hand of both manifestation and release. In the highest sense we want to create a world of order and beauty, but we also must not clutch and try to possess anything. Great harm is done when we claim ownership to any object of the world, especially when we “objectify” another person. This “grasping” is the only reason we suffer. Your relationship to the structures in your world and the need to have more discrimination from them is a big lesson now. These themes are especially poignant after the recent Pisces eclipse, joined Mars, which may have been very destructive. Now, picking up the pieces from recent events, and other cyclical ones, will be felt internally.

Debilitated Mercury
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, and he is debilitated now in Pisces. This shows the discrimination needed to organize and recognize the truth has been hijacked by a dreamy projection. Also, the story in our head may be confusing. In the highest sense, Mercury brings neutrality to situations, rather than emotional biases and other fallacies that distort our perception and lead to faulty conclusions. Correctly organizing and comprehending our life depends on Mercury being detached. This is hard to come by now.

Suggestions and Meditations

As is the case with all eclipses (and lunation cycles), introspection and meditation are the best thing we can do. In particular now, with this Moon/Rahu eclipse, it is very easy for emotional extremes to cloud our deeper feeling nature and potential. The deity of Hasta Nakshatra is Savitur, who is glorified in the famous Gayatri mantra. Repetitions of this mantra can be particularly healing now.
Om bhur bhuvah swaha
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Deemahi
Di yoyo Nah Prachodayat
