Just a thought about the current banking crisis and disrepute and the problems of the Euro, and how astrology depicts and predicts those.
Vedic astrology, using the sidereal zodiac, shows Ketu (South Node of the Moon), Jupiter and Venus in the sidereal sign of Taurus, which sign is all about material value and the body. As many Vedic astrologers have been predicting for some time, Ketu with its energy of dissolving and sudden events in the materialistic sign of Taurus could topple unsound financial structures, so as to seek to get back to what is genuine.
Western astrology on the other hand, using the tropical zodiac, shows these three planets in the tropical sign of Gemini, which sign is all about communication and lower mind.
How do they compare? Well, it seems to me that it’s Vedic Astrology depicts what’s really going on.
I am not knocking western astrology, which is really useful for psychological analysis in the hands of a reputable and qualified astrologer, because its tropical zodiac starts with 0 Aries based on the position of the Sun each year’s Vernal Equinox, so being Sun Sign based, it is about our egoic psychology and our egoic unfoldment.
But the sidereal zodiac of Vedic astrology is anchored to a ‘fixed star’ (Spica) and so depicts the eternal, for example our incarnational destiny and the circumstances we attract at birth and at definable times of predictive unfoldement, and thus Vedic Astrology is more sure and declarative.
I set out below the Vedic chart for NOW and the western chart for NOW, so you can compare!
PEORTH Sometimes we need to take chance. If we don’t we become imprisoned and small, and miss out on the beauty of our destiny – and a drag to others.

Rune Magic by Michael James Conneely:
The Seeress prophesied at the beginning of time that the Gods of Asgard will not survive the final battle; the Nine Worlds are heading to destruction; beauty and order will fail. As the forces of chaos and darkness gather, Declan and Magda, two young people who have never even seen each other before, suddenly find themselves seized by Odin. He takes them from their own world to work together to save the magic of the Runes and create a new future for the gods. Caught up in the end of the worlds, they choose love, courage and even cunning, and they themselves undergo the awesome magic tests where Odin first won his great powers. But can the prophecy of the Seeress be averted? Can a new world be created? And what will be their place in it?
‘Heimdall has sounded the Gjallarhorn. The forces of chaos are invading Asgard,’ Magda said urgently. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rune-Magic-ebook/dp/B007K8EERA/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1339678738&sr=1-1
Sacred Earth by Michael Conneely
Liam finds his life path in vision, ritual and living close to the earth. He leaves his cold and ambitious father who cares only for exam results and career and joins a protest group dedicated to saving a Bronze Age Stone Circle threatened by the start of quarrying near-by. In confronting the forces of greed, money, law and order and establishment, to whom an ancient sacred site is valueless, Liam is forced to make a choice: whether to risk his liberty in joining the protest or turn away out of fear. In defending the sacred earth, he discovers the Vision Realm, love and family. His life will never be the same again. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sacred-Earth-ebook/dp/B0089DQES2/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1339678594&sr=1-2
INVITATION TO OUR REPLACEMENT FESTIVAL FOR LAMMAS AS THE PLANNED FESTIVAL/SWEAT LODGE SITE IS WATERLOGGED
You are very happily invited to a celebration of the Festival of Lammas on the land near Ilkley. The Festival will be led by earth spirituality priestess and visionary artist Magda Nel Wenek. Please assemble at the Cow and Calf Car Park on Monday July 30th at 6pm. Bring food to share and cook on the fire maybe. This replaces the celebration of sacred sweat lodge and of the Festival of Lammas planned for Sunday 22nd July which has had to be cancelled as the land near Hebden Bridge is waterlogged, and there is a lot of quite awesome storm damage.
Magda powerfully connects to the Earth and creates vision and music, so she will intuit the energies of the land and the season in her own way, but the energies of this ancient Festival of Northern Europe, also called Lughnasadh, is essentially the beginning of the time of harvest. So the question is: what are we now harvesting? What harvest do we need and want to bring in?
The days are shortening; now, the summer is passing and giving way to autumn! The Festival of Lughnasadh is also associated with sacrifice as well as harvest: the midsummer King who married the Goddess and took responsibility for the land, now heads towards his eventual winter and to the shining isle. We sometimes have to sacrifice in order to build and sustain. We have to consent to sacrifice sometimes, and it is our consent that creates, because the gods are moved by a willing gift. It is the turning of the wheel: Summer is leaving; the light force is lessening.
This will provide invaluable insight into your spiritual life purpose and into the circumstances you will encounter in life: both at the moment of your birth, and at predictable points in time through our life.
Such matters as career, children issues, relationships and value issues are made immediately clear. The best path to maximising our potential at the different times in our life is explained.
Western astrology, when delivered by a trained and qualified astrologer, can so powerful depict our psychological nature and drives, it can also explain how our nurture modifies our nature, and thus the psychological patterns that drive us. It can give us this insight, and it can point the way to understanding and healing these patterns, so that we can become the powerful and genuine human being we were meant to be. It defines how we will experience the unfoldment of our life.
Vedic Astrology, however, is much vaster and much more ancient. It defines our incarnational life purpose. It provides a sure an accurate declaration of this, and makes an amazingly practical but spiritual explanation of the different life phases we will move through. Because it is so detailed, accurate and sure, it can provide such a clear sign post to the best path we should take.
