AUM SRI SAI RAM
Shani – Surya conjunction in Scorpio: Nov – Dec 2015
Puttaparthi Agastya Nadi Astrologer Sai Bharathi has provided commentary on the aspects between Mangal and Lord Shani Dev (Saturn) for the period September – November 2015. Both Surya (Sun) and Kuja (Mars) have transited and Sun has joined Saturn in Scorpio. Strength of character and depth of sadhana is needed for the world to face forthcoming events.

The Sun moves into Mars’ sign of Scorpio November 17. Mercury enters Scorpio the same day. Scorpio contains secrets and the secret self, the self we keep hidden from the world and sometimes, conveniently forgotten and hidden from ourselves. Exposure and vulnerability is the result of hiding things from the personal self. How we go about finding strength in the face of uncertainty? Sathyam vada, dharmam chara, speak truthfully, follow dharma.
As the Sun moves through Scorpio it comes together with Saturn which began its visit to Scorpio last November. Saturn in Scorpio brings strength where weaknesses are identified. Saturn means truth and truth will be exposed. Why? Sathyam moolam jagat, Truth is the basis of the Universe. Truth is eternal, truth cannot be hidden, truth always surfaces. It is one of the eternal human values which is found in all times, all lokas, all Universes, past and present and future. We can see many weaknesses play out on a global scale at this time. Many will try to control events because of their sense of vulnerability.
Saturn is in combustion between November 12 and December 17 (exact on November 30) due to its proximity to the Sun. Saturn in combustion leads to a reckoning.
Mercury moves alongside the Sun in Scorpio (also in a state of combustion); Scorpio is a clumsy place for Mercury, who prefers to flit about quickly as the Messenger of the Kala Purusha, the Lord of Time and Space. Mercury is not a guru; Brihaspati (Jupiter) and Shukra (Venus) are the planetary gurus. Mercury brings information and knowledge together and presents it to the buddhi – the intellect for synthesis and integration. As Scorpio is the place of secret knowledge and information and matters hidden from the public eye, Mercury is the vehicle, the messenger of exposure of that which is hidden and kept away from the light. Vulnerability is the outcome; Scorpio is a fixed sign containing fixed karma and like the lines written on the brow, this karma cannot be mutated nor hidden. What is in the dark must be brought to light. Mercury conjunct Sun and Saturn is the messenger. Mercury is also conjunct Saturn on November 24.
So we have the Mercury reckoning AND the Saturn reckoning casting an influence.
For the period from 17.11.2015 to 17.12.2015
The Sun (the King, President, Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers, people in power) and Saturn (rules, boundaries, truth, democracy, trustworthiness) will combine their energies during this phase. There would be adverse developments in the affairs of political leaders in countries around the world.
Corrupt politicians would be prosecuted by courts of law and some would be removed in disgrace from their former positions of power and influence. Scorpio is a fixed sign, and that which is fixed cannot be ameliorated; all action produces reaction. (Consider Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini of FIFA, the world Football ruling body, and their exposed corruption and suspensions).
Scorpio is the natural 8th house and rules beliefs of the masses, red tape, delays and obstructions, legacies, floods, earthquakes, cyclones, storms, and tsunami. Scorpio is also a water sign. Agni, the fire element, is found in water, in Vedic teaching. Hence, in many parts of the world, there will be accidents involving fire. Electricity and water shortages will occur in many countries. Such shortages will also manifest in India.
From 17.11.2015 to 17.12,2015, a major test will approach world leaders. Corruption will be exposed and names will be mentioned. Some leaders would not be able to weather the storm.
The planet Mars will influence terrorism in many parts of the world. (Terrorism operates from a hidden base; hidden activities are being brought into the light in Scorpio due conjunction of Sun, Saturn in the bhava (sign) owned by Mars—Scorpio). We must keep in mind, the Vedic astrology principle that planets behave like the owner of the sign they are in. Hence, both Sun and Saturn will behave a little like Mars. Mars is red, heat, boiling, hot energy, anger, fire. There will be increasing fear and public anger. This will result in the perpetrators being exposed, denounced and punished.
From Scorpio, Saturn, Sun and Mercury call cast the 7th sight, dristi, all planets aspect the 7th house away with 100% aspect. As all planets are in a natural trika house and malefic (Mercury takes the nature of the planet it is conjunct with) the triple malefic aspect goes to the 2nd House. Parashara teaches that the 2nd house rules revenue, stock exchange, trading and banking. Economies will be destabilised and there will be increasing unemployment and much public discontent (aspecting from Scorpio where the beliefs of the masses are located) thus generating fear in many countries.
Mercury rules journeys. Mercury also takes nature of planets it is with – here, Saturn and Sun. Thus affliction will occur to journeys. There will be maritime disasters with ships sinking and loss of life. Aircraft crashes will continue to occur in various parts of the world.
The eastern side of Sri Lanka would be hit by cyclones with devastating effect. These could also affect other parts of the world.
Mother Earth – Bhudevi
The Earth herself is a living being, and as Sathya Sai Baba has told, everything in creation has atman (the Soul principle), atma balan (strength of soul) and light within. Sathya Sai Baba has also told that everything in creation has consciousness of one form or another. This does not mean all beings and all the elements – fire, earth, air, water, akash (ether) – have a sentient form of consciousness like humans do – far from it. However, there is an unconscious form of consciousness, and Bhudevi, Mother Earth herself acts for the GOOD OF THE ALL — that is the good of all living beings that exist and live within, upon and above the earth in the air and in the atmosphere.
And this – of course – is interrupted sometimes by man’s activities upon the Earth. Such as digging unnecessarily into the Earth herself. The Sun changes polarity every 11 years. There is a magnetic flip. These magnetic polar reversals have also happened on Earth. If Mother Earth wants to change the energy fields, she creates volcanic disruptions; or tsunamis, or events that will move things around. And that is always done with the consciousness of all living things. So we keep in mind that Earth is acting for the good of the All.
Worldwide, the long-predicted Pralaya (extreme catastrophe) will start to show its face, with natural phenomena such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and violent winds in the form of cyclones and hurricanes of enormous magnitude manifesting in many parts of the world. There will be widespread loss of life.
All earth changes in this period will be of a serious nature, especially in the south east and south west directions from India. In the south east, New Zealand and Australia and the island countries of South East Asia could be affected. This would also extend to the Pacific Islands. In the south west, South America and islands in the Atlantic could be involved.
There will be great disasters involving water, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. These will cause serious disruptions of normal life and much confusion. In their fear, despair and hunger, people will turn against their leaders and governments. Spontaneous violent uprisings and revolutions are indicated, as the beliefs of the masses have been betrayed. On the day before Sai Bharathi giving this forecast, Mexico’s Colima volcano, also known as the Fire Volcano, erupted on Monday sending a plume of smoke and ash some 9,842 feet into the air.
We are not blind victims to the planets nor are we led like lemmings to rush over the edge of the cliff into the oceans of death and destruction. The planets are amsa of the Kala Purusha, and do their duty. Brahma is Creator, with rajo guna; the planets unfold maya by reflecting and refracting light within the mind, the body, the senses. The effect of planets is largely how we utilise them; they may drag us down, they may pull us up. Signs are movable, fixed and mutable, and planets may be approached prayer, tapasya, puja and homams. We may appease, we may divert, we may alleviate the seriousness of these predictions with sacrifice, sacred offering, duty, devotion and discipline. One may do loka sevanam, service for the welfare of the World. Sri Sathya Sai Baba undertook loka sevanam on many occasions and graciously allowed devotees to participate. One may always undertake service for the welfare of the world, indeed, all the worlds: Samasta Loka Sukhino Bhavantu.
Recommendation is to do Rudra Hommam and Subramanya puja. All are advised to undertake WORLD PEACE PRAYERS: Archana and Rudram, (prayers), Abhishekam (pouring of libations amidst chanting of mantras), Homam (ritual offerings to fire), Sankalpam (sacred resolutions and intentions), and Puja (offerings).

Thanks and Best Regards,
Lord Shiva danced.
But why would God dance?
Simple. This is the poetic way of the Hindus of describing the creation of the Universe from its basic building blocks – the atom and its component molecular elements, protons, neutrons and electrons.
The nucleus of every atom is surrounded by constantly whirling molecules. This constant motion of atomic elements was encapsulated by some ancient Tamil genius in the now world-famous form of the “Dancing Nataraja” statue of South India.
“Nataraja” means “dancing king” a euphemism for God, for Hindus have always known that all matter in the Universe is in constant motion or “dance”. God, or Shiva in His aspect as Brahma is the Creator; as Maha Vishnu, the Preserver of all life, as Shiva, the Destroyer (of maya- illusion).
In the Dancing Nataraj, the unknown genius-sculptor had succeeded in conveying an arcane scientific truth in easily-understandable visual form. Wordlessly, the statue speaks volumes.
Firstly, it establishes God as King of the Universe. Secondly, it attributes the creation of the Universe exclusively to Him. The statue’s very stance and every gesture convey either a scientific or spiritual truths. Its extra pair of arms is not some weird deformity as western scholars once surmised, but merely an artistic device to help convey these truths.
This endlessly-copied statue has nothing to do with religion, for the simple reason that there is no such thing as a “Hindu religion”. That is an invention of misleading foreign religious proselytisers. It has everything to do with science and the atomic structure of all matter within the universe. Hindu spiritual and scientific thought have always been intertwined.
Interlaced with the scientific truths that the statue conveys, are the basic spiritual principles that relate to all that exists. Above all, this greatest of all symbolic works expresses, in mute eloquence, the primary concept that everything in existence is Eternal Cosmic Energy. That Energy, as every student of Hindu thought knows, is Shiva.
Now man, with his imperfect knowledge and perverse ambition, seeks to modify that Cosmic Perfection with genetic engineering. Its promoters laud their mischief as great scientific advancement.
What immature petulance, what madness! What travesty of the Eternal Truth!
Now, in the face of this insanity, Mahavishnu has stepped aside. Shiva girds his loins with His accoutrements of destruction. Once more, His awesome dance as Nataraja is about to begin. The firmament on which He dances, do not forget, is this Earth.
The Dance of Creation has long ended. It is the other, of dissolution, that is about to begin.
