Astro-Jagriti : Issue # 2
Effectiveness of Aditya Hridayam in times of COVID-19, Mars retrograde in Pisces etc.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to haunt the World, humanity desperately tries to develop mechanisms to cope with it. None of us can say how much the World has been able to successfully control the virus. Astrologically speaking, the threat from COVID-19 is far from over. Whatever the testing data says, it is advisable to remain extremely cautious in the months to come.
In this issue of Astro-Jagriti, we will discuss the movement of Mars into Pisces from Aries during its retrograde movement on 8th October 2020. It would continue in the retrograde state till 14th November 2020. This movement of Mars has significant astrological implications on each one of us. Besides, in the Astro-nugget section, we will discuss a question from a reader regarding suicides and depression.
The Highlight of the issue is Aditya Hridayam. Even at the cost of sounding like a stuck record, I would, again and again, emphasise on the power of Aditya Hridayam. It is one of the most effective spiritual tools available to indirectly affect our immunity. It takes very less time to recite and the sound intonations are powerful.
Retrogation (Vakri) of Mars in Pisces this month is significant for all of us. Each one of us would be affected depending on our respective horoscope. The impact would be prominent for those having Ascendant (Lagna) in Gandanta (29 degrees Pisces to 0 degrees Aries), those having Mahadasa or Antardasa of Mars, those with Leo and Virgo Lagna (as the transit of Mars would be in 8th and 7th house for them).
Irrespective of the position of Mars in our horoscope, the best remedy from 08th October 2020 to 14th November 2020 shall be to undertake physical exercises. Astrologers would suggest wearing gemstones like Moonga but please don’t do that. We just need to do physical exercises to burn the access energies of the Vakri Mars.
If anyone is facing adversities and missing the feel-good factor in life after 08th October 2020, please listen to the Mangal Grah Mantra, a few times. This will ward off anxiety and tension from the mind.
ऊँ अग्निर्मूर्ध्दा दिव: ककुत्पति: पृथिव्या अयम्। अपांग्रेतांग्सि जिन्वति
Om Agnirmoordha Diva Kakutpati Prithivya Ayam. Apangretangsi Jinvati
How is it possible that someone with a strong mind commits suicide? Can my horoscope tell if I can commit suicide? If yes, then how can that be prevented?
There are definite planetary combinations in a horoscope that show suicidal tendencies in a person. These combinations are present in everybody’s horoscope but the degree and intensity vary. Each one of us, at some point in time, would feel that life is meaningless and similar depressing thoughts. The four planets- Moon, Sun, Jupiter and Mercury are important in analyzing this issue. If there are prominent suicidal tendencies seen in a horoscope in certain dashas, the best is to recite sattvik mantras of the Antardasa planet or the nakshatra sutram of the nakshatra in which the dasha planet is at the time of birth.
The Power of Aditya Hridayam or Aditya Hridaya Stotra
If there is one powerful remedy for reclaiming lost energy during illness, it is the Aditya Hridayam- the hymns dedicated to the Sun God. This is of utmost relevance during the times of COVID-19. Listening to or reciting Aditya Hridayam is an indirect powerful immunity booster. Moreover, it uplifts the mood and keeps the mind full of positive energy which is very important in today’s times when we find negativity all around.
Please do benefit from listening to the powerful Aditya Hridayam. There are tremendous mental and spiritual benefits even if it is listened to or recited once a week (especially on a Sunday). Further Reads:
