Time for some good news.  Saturn/Ketu  are still running in the background along with Mars in Cancer but there are a few bright spots emerging this week but still a lot of tensions oming witih Saturn moving toward Rahu and Mercury conjunct Mars into Monday and Saturn opposing the Sun.   On the bright side . . .
Sun  transits into one of my favorite constellations, Punarvasu (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20) know by Western astronomers as Castor and Pollux.    Punarvasu means “the return of the light” and has the divine ability to bring spiritual light into darkness and it  reflects purity, satya (truth) and strong moral values.It’s shakti or power is “the ability to gain wealth or abundance”. The main deity is Aditi, the Cosmic Mother, who bestows her creative abundance on all who seek her blessings. This lunar mansion is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the great benefic.
Sun finally moves out of the suffering and teary constellation of Ardra early on July 6th .  In the first pada ruled by Aries (Gemini 20-23.30) (July 6-8th) it will find idealism and renewed energy to search for its purpose.  It will also find confidence through this transit and connects with Jupiter in Scorpio which will promote deep psychological introspection to reveal the mysteries of our very nature  by channeling Jupiter’s strong energy through constellation ownership.  Jupiter is particularly strong being retrograde until August 11th promoting deep inner wisdom and insights.   Still in the Capricorn pada (Scorpio 20-23.20) it may be too over-optimistic  and not real in judging what is truth.   Still it feels good and its connection with the Sun will uplift our spirits mostly on Sundays and Thursdays.
This constellation provides nourishment and nurturing after the tough storms of Ardra (Betelguese/Gemini 6.40-20.00) It creates contentment and grounding energy but sometimes lacks foresight which leads to complications and adventures.   If you were born with the Sun, Moon or Ascendant in this constellation, you have the qualities of a universal caregiver and are very generous.  Venus will go into this constellation on July 15th-July 26th and this will also lift our spirits and expand buying power and expansive energy.
