Rahu and America's Date with Destiny

"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens." The timeless quote from Ecclesiastes is apropos for these times as America has entered into a new season of time — the planetary cycle of Rahu. Rahu is a planet of storm and rebellion, and it will come as no surprise that the United States was born on July 4, 1776, in the planetary cycle of Rahu. Once again America has entered the storm cycle of Rahu with the election of the stormy presidency of Donald Trump.

Cycles, or seasons of time, are found in all almanacs and calendars that measure both the quality and duration of time. Vedic astrology utilizes a system of planetary cycles, or seasons that repeat themselves every 120 years. Rahu, and his counterpart Ketu, are shadow planets of storm and this is the year the eclipses come to the horizon and ruling planet of the United States. So, if we wish to forecast the fruit of a particular season, we only need to look back on the historical record of past seasons, for as Mark Twain proclaimed, "History never repeats itself, but often rhymes." Join Dennis as he forecasts Rahu's cycle and America's date with destiny 2019.

The 2019 Rahu/Ketu Tempest in Gemini/Sagittarius

The nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu, are depicted as dragons and serpents in the astrology of both the east and the west. The symbol of the nodes is found on the back of the head of the king of snakes; the cobra. The serpent and dragon mythology of all eastern and western creation myths liken the serpents and dragons appearance to times of archetypal struggle, as they are harbingers of storms and eclipses, representing the epic battle between the forces of light and darkness.

This year Rahu enters Gemini and Ketu enters Sagittarius on March 23, 2019, where they will begin their epic struggle in these constellations for the next year and a half. Join Dennis in discussion to see where the Rahu/Ketu tempest falls in your charts, as you must ultimately vanquish your own demons before you can assist others in their struggle to the light.

The Vargas of Vedic Astrology

Vedic sage Parasara lists a total of 16 vargas, or divisional charts, that are derived from the natal Vedic birth chart. Each amsa, or part, is likened to a branch of a tree, the tree of your life. Sage Parasara suggests the use of 6 or 7 of these amsas: the 2nd Hora, being the branch of life that deals with wealth, the 3rd Drekkena, the branch of siblings, the most auspicous 9th Navamsa, the branch of dharma and marriage, the 7th Saptamsa, the branch of children, the 12th Dwadasamsa, the branch of parents, and the unlucky 13th Trimsamsa, the branch of misery and sorrow. Contemporary Vedic astrologers on occasion use the 10th Dasamsa, for vocation, and the 60th Shastiamsa for twins and multiple births which are more common in our times. Let Dennis show you how and when to use certain of the vargas to enrich your chart interpretation and predictions.
