Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for The Future ~ Mario Reading

Pub Date Aug 1 2015

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

Published on Apr 1, 2015

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

The stars are within us ! Qualities and Characteristics of the 27 Nakshatras in Terms of Personality Traits

“Human beings embody
the totality of Natural Law,
they are the embodiment of the
Constitution of the Universe.”

– Maharishi –

In this expression of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the essence of the whole vedic wisdom is contained. The whole purpose of the vedic teaching is to bring home to man that he is essentially one with the universe. In essence, we all share the same identity, the same eternal and cosmic consciousness, the Atma, the self of all beings – the unified field of all the laws of nature. Nevertheless, we do observe that each one of us expresses this same unbounded field of transpersonal consciousness in a unique and personal way.

Jyotish or vedic astrology, one of the six vedangas or limbs of the Veda, not only provides a practical demonstration of the fact that we are one with the universe, but also explains why certain qualities of the unified field express themselves more in one person, while other qualities are more manifest in other persons. These personal differences are explained in terms of the enlivenment of certain parts of the kalapurusha (personified time; in western astrology referred to as the zodiac) by the placement of Sun, Moon, planets, and the ascendant, at the time of birth of each and every individual. In the sanskrit language Sun is called Surya, and the Moon is called Chandra.

This chapter concerns itself with the division of the kalapurusha in 27 parts, called nakshatras, each of which comprises 13 degrees and 20 minutes of arc in the kalapurusha or zodiac. This ancient division of the kalapurusha, which preceded the division into the more commonly known twelve rashis or signs of the zodiac, has a special reference to the movement of Chandra, the Moon. Nakshatra literally means ‘indestructable one’, and is referring to the assumed indestructable nature of a star. Hence the regular translation of nakshatra is ‘star’. In English translations the nakshatras are usually referred to by the term ‘lunar mansions.’ In vedic astrology the division of the zodiac in 27 nakshatras serves a variety of functions.

First and foremost, the nakshatras form the basis of the vimshottari dasha system, which Maharshi Parashara, who is often regarded as the founding father of vedic astrology, holds to be the most important tool for predicting future events.
Secondly, in muhurtha, or electional astrology, the nakshatras are one of the main considerations for determining the suitability of a certain period of time for starting specific undertakings.
And thirdly, nakshatras are used in selecting a suitable name for a new-born child, in order to ensure a cosmic correspondence between the name and the personality of that newly born individual.
A fourth way of consulting the nakshatras is presented in this paper, describing the personality traits of a native on the basis of the enlivenment of certain nakshatras in his birth chart.
As is the case with the 12 rashis, the 27 nakshatras possess certain qualities and characteristics which can be expressed in terms of personality traits. The presence of Chandra in a certain nakshatra enlivens the qualities of that nakshatra. In other words, the person born ‘under’ a certain nakshatra, will exhibit the personality traits belonging to that nakshatra. The nakshatra in which Chandra is placed at the time of birth is usually the most prominent factor in reflecting the personality of the concerned native. In Jyotish literature the nakshatra in which Chandra is placed at birth is commonly referred to as janma-nakshatra or ‘birth-star’.
Furthermore, the ascendant in the birthchart, which symbolizes the eastern horizon as seen from the time and place of birth, enlivens that part of the kalapurusha in which it falls. In the 24 hours that the earth turns around its axis the rising sign passes through each of the 12 signs of the zodiac and by the same token through the 27 nakshatras of the kalapurusha. In vedic astrology the ascendant is called lagna. The qualities and characteristics of the nakshatra that is rising on the eastern horizon will find their expression in the personality.

Note that I don’t say that this nakshatra causes the qualities and characteristics of the individual in a certain way. The planets and the stars simply form a cosmic mirror for what is happening here below. The ancients expressed this principle in the famous dictum: ‘As above, so below’. It is to be understood once and for all by all students of any kind of astrology that both levels – above and below – are the simultaneous expressions of the unified field of all the laws of nature, and are connected to each other on the level of infinite correlation – the cosmic principle of synchronicity. For an elaboration of this wonderful principle of life see the chapter on the holographic nature of the universe.

The nature and characteristics of the nakshatra that is enlivened by the lagna, will be found to be coexistent with the qualities and personality traits, belonging to the nakshatra enlivened by the Moon.

Thirdly, the placement of Surya, the Sun, in the kundali or birth chart of a person, serves as a major factor in enlivening that area of the kalapurusha in which it is placed. In other words, the nature and characteristics of the nakshatra in which Surya is placed at birth, will form an integrated part of the nature and characteristics of the person concerned.

Of the three nakshatras, enlivened respectively by Chandra, lagna and Surya, the one in which Chandra is placed usually shows up most clearly in the nature of the person. In cases where the ascendant is clearly the strongest factor in a chart the nakshatra in which the lagna is placed shows itself most clearly in the personality. In some exceptional cases the nakshatra enlivened by Surya will prove the most dominant factor in the personality structure of the native. It all depends on the relative strength of these three basic factors in the horoscope. In cases where two or three or even more planets occupy one single nakshatra then the personality traits indicated by that nakshatra may prove to be a very strong aspect of the nature of the individual if not the strongest.

As a student of Maharishi’s vedic science I have trained myself to interpret a birthchart in the light of the natural process of evolution towards enlightenment. I read a chart in the light of the consciousness of the individual. The soul of an individual is essentially free from any impurities caused by the ignorance of the personality. I believe that the primary function of any form of astrology should be to help the person tune in to his own soul. The soul by nature is a field of inifinite wisdom and bliss.. According to vedic science the soul consist of three qualities, namely sat, chit and ananda or truth, self-referral consciousness and bliss. Vedic science asserts that the sole cause of human suffering lies in forgetting one’s own soul, which equates with one’s full potential as a human being.

The soul or the atma is a field of pure potentiality, a field of all possibilities, free from ignorance and a fountainhead of energy, courage and joy. The goal of everyone’s life, the goal of every human being, born on this planet, whether he or she knows it or not, is to realize his soul’s potential. All branches of vedic science are geared towards this goal. Vedic astrology is no exception to the rule. The primary duty so to speak of every (vedic) astrologer is to help his client tune in to his soul, because only by realizing one’s soul one realizes one’s full potential and hence one’s life-purpose. Gary Zukav has said it beautifully in his recent book Seat of the Soul: ”When a personality is in full balance, you cannot see where it ends and the soul begins. That is a whole human being.’

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in his lessons on vedic astrology emphasized once that ‘Jyotish should never be taken on any other level than the level of vedanta’. Vedanta is the science of the soul. Vedanta teaches that there is only one soul, the soul of the universe, which all of us embody. By interpreting a chart on the level of vedanta we automatically help the client to realize his true identity, as an infinite eternal blissful soul, free from the consequences of ignorance and suffering.

In the science of creative intelligence formulated by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1972 and in all his more recent explanations of the 40 branches of vedic science, it is made clear that the whole purpose of life is to gain enlightenment. Being born on planet Earth usually implies that one is not fully aware of one’s unbounded, cosmic nature. While we are in reality one with the entire cosmos, we usually start our planetary adventure by regarding ourselves as an individual human being, bound in time and space. This incomplete and therefore incorrect image of our self automatically results in certain imbalances of the personality, leading to ignorance, frustration and suffering, etc.

In ayurveda, this loss of memory of one’s infinite nature is called pragya aparadha, which is said to be the ultimate cause of all doshas or impurities in mind and body. Since the doshas are rooted in such a deep level of consciousness, they naturally pervade our mind, body, and behaviour. Being born with a certain set of imperfections and weaknesses however, does not mean that we are supposed to live with them for the whole of our life. Vedic science says that the normal course of life would be, that one gains full enlightenment – unity consciousness – as soon as the body gains full maturation.

Per definition, enlightenment means that one has reached perfection and that one is eternally established in sattva: ‘nitya sattvastho’ (Bhagavad Gita, 2:45), freed from all doshas. This means that in enlightenment we are free from all impurities and stresses.

Jyotish textbooks however, generally mention many imperfections when they describe the nature of the several grahas, bhavas, rashis and nakshatras. From the perspective of vedic science, as given above, it is clear that wherever these doshic descriptions are provided, they should be understood as referring to those stages of human evolution, where one has not yet fully realised one’s own unbounded nature, one’s cosmic status in life. It is clear that in the case of persons who have realised their true nature, their infinite and eternal soul, and have become one with themselves, these doshic descriptions no longer apply!

This point should be kept in mind when studying Jyotish books and for that matter any kind of astrology books. Otherwise these very texts – which may have been written for the purpose of assisting the individuals to reach enlightenment, and to create a heavenly life on Earth – in themselves become a further means of bondage by perpetuating the pragya aparadha of the individuals. When we do not take an evolutionary perspective on the nature of human life, as delineated by the vedic wisdom, one could even find excuses and reinforcements of one’s own stresses, depressions and aggressions by blaming the stars for it!

No doubt, every nakshatra, as well as every graha, bhava and rashi, contains within its nature a certain proneness to a specific mode of stressful or doshic behaviour. However, we should be aware of the inherent limitations of these descriptions and apply them only with great discretion and wisdom. This means that we should keep in mind that everyone’s life is meant to blossom into enlightenment by nature, and that every society is naturally evolving to experience a state of heaven on earth.

In contrast to most of the jyotish books available on the market today, the subsequent descriptions of the personality traits related to each of the 27 nakshatras provide the student of vedic astrology with a list of dosha-free descriptions, depicting the full potential that is inherent in each of the 27 nakshatras. The personality traits mentioned below have been derived from over a dozen Jyotish books. The purpose of these dosha-free descriptions is to inspire every individual to whom they apply to tune in to their full potential as an unbounded soul, free from the chains of ignorance. These 27 descriptions are designed to indicate the full potential of the 27 modes of consciousness represented by the 27 nakshatras. The idea is that these evolutionary qualities of the 27 nakshatras will express themselves more freely and fully as we become more and more free from stress. According to the vedic literature, stars are the physical expressions of the devas or gods. Deva literally means ‘shining one.’ Thus, by tuning ourselves in to the inspiration coming from the stars, we are actually tuning ourselves in to the galaxy of the gods. In this way we tune in to and realize our cosmic nature in which we understand that the gods are nothing but our own good qualities! May this chapter on the nakshatras (stars) help us in realizing how good we are, and how many evolutionary qualities we do posses! May the galaxy of the stars be a constant reminder to us of our true cosmic status, which is filled with an infinite number of positive and creative tendencies. May the stars be an inspiration to us, calling us to come home to our cosmic self, that per definition we all share in common.

It is hoped that these dosha-free descriptions will serve as an inspiration to all students of vedic astrology. May these cosmic indicators serve us as a guide on our way home, on our way to unity consciousness.

Jupiter Retrograde Until April 9 2015 ~ Sam Geppi

The Sanksrit name for Jupiter is “Guru”, which literally translates to “remover /destroyer of darkness”. It also means “heavy”, which describes the weight and gravitas of our important teachings, and how they take us deeper than just the surface of things, or at least they should.

As such Jupiter themes give our life a trajectory. Whether in the form of our religion and beliefs, and those who teach us, or things like our children, when we interact with Jupiter, questions of meaning and purpose prevail.

Jupiter themes also refer to the hope and optimism we have for the future. We tie a lot of hopes up in our children. But those hopes can also,,,

Vedic Astrology Forecast – Week of December 1, 2014 [Updated Dec 2, 2014]

The week of December 1, 2015 will be dominated by four planets in Scorpio. Those planets are Saturn, the sun, Venus and Mercury.

Scorpio themes will dominate the upcoming week. Those themes include strengthening our fears and insecurities, both in our self and others. We have to be careful not to attempt to control others, but instead look inside our own heart, reaching for self-mastery and self-control.

Exchange Between Saturn and Mars
The ruler of Scorpio, Mars, is exalted now, and he will be until early January 2015. This exalted Mars brings a lot of individual accountability as a motivation. But it may also bring willfulness and the competitive “desire to win”, or “desire to assert ourself” into the mix.

However, Mars in Saturn’s sign and Saturn in Mars’s sign also sets up an exchange, which helps to hold together all things indicated by each. So, discipline and self-control (Mars), as well as facing our own mistakes, determination and commitment (Saturn) themes will be advanced. That does not mean these things will be pleasant or enjoyable.

Jupiter Aspect – Especially to Venus
Jupiter in cancer is aspecting the planets in Scorpio. In particular, Wednesday and Thursday this week, Venus will move into an exact aspect with Jupiter. This should show some great lessons coming down from our teachers, illuminating our relationship tendencies and mistakes. However, inner conflicts around our higher principles and hopes intersecting with our personal desires will be revealed as well. Often our relationship choices are not in alignment with our beliefs, and neither are our desires or our quest for pleasure.

Amma Story – Illusion of Separateness – Pleasure/Pain Cycle:
I just returned from a 2 week journey with my Guru, that illustrates a lot of these themes.

From the Q&A segment at Amma’s retreat, there was a question about whether change begins first from the inside, or should we work on changing the outside first.

The first part of Amma’s answer was so profoundly simple, yet so deep. She basically said there is no difference between inner and outer – whatsoever. But because we are so deeply identified with ourselves as a body we see division everywhere, in everything – when there is none.

As we become more clear about the nature of reality, that projection of separateness ends and we see the truth that inner and outer are completely ONE.

Later in that question, something else was said, that also very poignant about the nature of pleasure and pain. She said how all experiences, even enjoyable ones, are mixed with pain, due to this same illusion – the illusion that the enjoyable experience came from something external, rather than it being us enjoying / experiencing our inner Self.

Saturn actually refers to the pain of separation from our true Self. We experience this as our “mistakes”, others mistakes and how they lord over us.

Venus has to do with the bliss of the soul, that we chase in the form of life’s fleeing pleasures – and their wispy romantic promises.

Scorpio (and Mars) has to do with the feeling of weakness that derives from the terrifying prospect that our life is devoid of love and connection – actually to our True Self – but we focus it on external forms / people.

Deep Stuff.

We have all heard the popular saying “would you rather be happy or right”. It is usually said to illuminate a tense situation with another person where we are at odds over a principle. Generally, this questions is heavily biased, imploring us to pursue being “Happy” (Venus) rather than being “Right (Mars). And yet, we get into just as many problems with our relentless pursuit of happiness at all costs – as we do arguing / wanting to be right about things.

Bill Cosby | Isis | Sexual Scandal – Saturn in Scorpio

Published on Nov 17, 2014

Since Saturn moved into Scorpio there have been numerous event and stories in the news of disturbing sexual revelations – mainly related to sexual abuse.

Bill Cosby | Isis | Sexual Scandal – Saturn in Scorpio – VIDEO

There are now numerous allegations of sexual assault against Bill Cosby. Many women are now coming out of the shadows to allege past abuses. There are too many to simply ignore.

Isis Capturing and Enslaving Women

it is being widely reported that ISIS has been (as a matter of doctrine) capturing and enslaving the wives / women of their enemies.

Jian Ghomeshi Non Consensual Rough Sex Allegations

This Canadian Radio celebrity was fired a few weeks ago due to allegations of sexual assault. He says they were all “consensual” encounters of rough sex. But there are many women now coming out of the shadows to claim they were also abused.

Honey Boo-boo Show Cancelled Due to Mom’s Involvement with Convicted Sex offender

The mother of reality TV star nicknamed Honey Boo-boo has had meaningful contact with a man who is a convicted sex offender – AND who assaulted her own daughter before.

Saturn in Scorpio Transit

Scorpio is the sign of fears and vulnerabilities / obsessions, that can lead to diabolical behavior and perversion if not transformed into compassion and emotional strength. Saturn is the planet of consequences and time, but also of fear. Whereas Scorpio shows our imagined fears, like jealousy, paranoia, and lack of control. Saturn shows the tangible fears and consequences – loss of money, loss of health, actual death.

The higher potential of Saturn in Scorpio is revealed when we “get serious” (Saturn) about our irrational fears and the manipulations that result (Scorpio). This leads to the willingness to exist in solitude and face the reality (Saturn) that we only have control of our mind and heart (Scorpio).

The lower nature of Saturn in Scorpio can easily be seen by sexual assault, where we momentarily assert a counterfeit version of control over another.

What have you been controlling / abusing that you need to let go of?

For me, the real value in these moments lies not in a sort of “Rubber necking / outrage” over these celebrities / allegations. The courageous choice is to see how these same themes are UP FOR US AS WELL – and I assure you, they are.

Ask yourself a few tough questions.

What / who have you been controlling / abusing?
Does this feel like the time is up on this?
So, what now? What are you going to do to transform this?

For me it goes like this:
The last few years as I have been getting more and more students, I have been facing my need for control, out of the fear that “no one can do it as well as me”, etc. But I also have realized that this is holding back the growth of the school. So for the last year or so I have been hiring / empowering more of my students to do a lot of the work. They enjoy it and it frees me up energetically to create more channels. Now with Saturn in Scorpio these opportunities are even greater and I am being challenged to relinquish more and more levers of control. It is the “entrepreneurs disease”.
