Astro-Jagriti : Issue # 5
The Shanti Mantra, Sun-Saturn Conjunction in Capricorn and more
The year 2020 have deeply impacted us in so many different ways. Every human being on Earth was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we have already discussed in April-2020 article titled When will Coronavirus end?- the year 2021 is expected to be better than 2020. There are strong chances of vaccine reaching majority of population by late 2021. But as predicted, it seems unlikely that the World would be able to effectively dominate the virus before April-2022. Till then, let’s follow all norms and keep ourselves and our family safe.
There is no major celestial event in this month. A celestial event of some significance is the combination of Saturn and Sun in Capricorn while Jupiter and Mercury remains in the sign.
In the Astro-nuggets section, a question of an esteemed reader of RationalAstro regarding an Astrological Centre subsidizing a puja is addressed.
Hope the readers find this fifth issue of Astro-Jagriti informative.
In December-2020, a rare celestial event happened- The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. We discussed it in the Astro-Jagriti Issue#4.
In this month, on 24-January-2021 @ 8:34:06 hrs, while Jupiter and Saturn remains in Capricorn along with Mercury, the great SUN conjoins Saturn at the exact same degrees 11 degree 20 minutes. This is not a rare celestial phenomenon, though, as this combination is going to happen every year. But, what makes it significant is the presence of Jupiter in Capricorn. Thus, we are looking at combination of Jupiter+Saturn+Sun+Mercury all in Capricorn.
How are we affected? We remain confused. Yes. The Jupiter’s wisdom combines with Sun’s energy and Mercury’s dynamism but at the same time gets shrouded by Saturn’s cold and non-emotional energies. Naturally, our decision-making would be affected. If one feels confused and anxious, s(he) should avoid taking any major decisions between 24-27th January and listen to Shanti Mantra to get immediate peace of mind:
Sometimes, we feel helpless in dealing with a negative situation in life. We should, however, just focus on what’s possible instead of blaming and regretting about the situation itself.
An interesting but important question sent by an esteemed reader is as follows-
There have been two deaths in my family recently. My health isn’t keeping well. I am also facing career issues. An astrology center has suggested me to do a Puja of Kali Ma which would cost Rs. 21000/-. They have offered that 60% amount the center will pay and I have to pay only 40%. Please suggest whether I should take the deal.
I am surprised as well as concerned. The business of astrology is using all kinds of marketing to extort people.
First of all, no problems gets solved by such pujas done by paid people. There is no provision in Astrology wherein someone else does a remedy on behalf of other person (barring very few exceptions involving infants and children). Please don’t fall for such marketing gimmicks. Effective remedies do not require money to be spent. Please don’t spend money on conducting Pujas or on gemstones. It doesn’t help.
Either do specific puja yourself or just do a mantra corresponding to the planet whose dasha is running. Mantras are sattvik with no side effects. (Several Mantras are available for free share and download at RationalAstro YouTube Channel).
This month, the article is about the Shanti Mantra/ शांति मंत्र.
Shanti Mantras refer to a group of Mantras that are chanted for alleviating general anxiety and restlessness due to negative thoughts in the mind. These mantras can be chanted alongside specific vedic remedies that one might be doing. Shanti Mantra is a powerful remedy in conditions of insomnia and general sleep disorders.
It takes about 35 seconds but listening to it 3-4 times a day for a week significantly improves quality of sleep. Please have a listen.
