Talking About Your Spirituality in Vedic Astrology
Talking About Your Spirituality
This month brings an 18-month focus into everyone’s life around understanding the proper balance between intellect and spirit. Can you talk the talk and walk the walk?
The planet of future karma, Rahu, is now in the Vedic sign of Gemini while the planet of past karma, Ketu, is in the Vedic sign of Sagittarius. This combination, in effect for the next year and a half, brings the focus of the present life on spiritual experiences as well as the ability to communicate them effectively.
One of the main concerns of this combination is to develop our ability to better express ourselves through speaking, writing and communication. There will also be a renewed focus on developing companionship, intellectual ability, and even improving our flexibility, both physical and mental.
At the same time, we may find an ability to connect to our innate wisdom and knowledge that the soul has gathered over the past lives.
As we experience this awakening of a reservoir of passive knowledge from a previous life, we now need to find a way to activate it and bring it into the present world.
Be aware of a tendency to over-intellectualize your spirituality or spend time reading about rather than following your spiritual path. The attention on your spiritual journey may waver as you vacillate between multiple possibilities.
The lesson of this time is to find a way to express your knowledge in a meaningful way and to work on developing your power to communicate your spiritual insights. Spiritual journaling will be an excellent practice, as well as engaging in a structured way to develop your ability to deliver your innate vast knowledge, such as perhaps taking a yoga teacher training course.
Lord Krishna, according to the Vedic texts, was born with this sign placement of Rahu in Gemini and Ketu in Sagittarius, which manifested in his clever use of language and charming ways (Rahu in Gemini) to lead people into the realization of the divine law (Ketu in Sagittarius).
As this karmic axis of Rahu in Gemini and Ketu in Sagittarius occurs every 18 years, people who will find this placement most intensely are those who are now 18, 36, 54, 72 and 90 years old as they were born into this present energy.
For these people, and perhaps the rest of us, the next 18 months can offer a new opportunity for a “karmic reset” where we can better understand our relationship between our intellectual yearning for understanding and our mystical search for spiritual integration.
Read about it, talk about, think about it – but then do it. This astrological opportunity only comes every 18 years!
