I want a ‘Happy Life’



I want a ‘Happy Life’



Our life’s journey begins when we are born and ends with death (we think of death as something that happens to others not for ourselves) and time/ life span we get is a big mystery. Making our life journey 'happy' every single day is worthwhile and this is my thought for writing this blog post. As an astrologer, I get a chance to meet so many people and my personal observation is that today we are so lost in our wants and desires that we forget to enjoy and smile each day. Seems strange to say, but most of us miss out on half (or maybe all) the fun in life that way. On this planet earth, there are so many places to see, so much luxury to enjoy, so many beautiful things to buy, but we are lost in our personal miseries. 

There are and will be some worries in life.
 
Today, everyone wants to be rich, powerful and successful..... true enough for who wants to be poor, suffer ill health, etc etc but is THAT a reality? For all the people you see in your everyday life from a distance, you may think they had everything going for them except for me. Up close (as an astrologer I do get a chance), you may see the cracks in that facade.
Is it really possible to be successful, happy or healthy, ALWAYS in life? There are and will be some worries in life. So, why do we want something that hasn’t happened ever to anyone and is not a reality, instead why not enjoy and celebrate LIFE. Isn’t our ‘wants’ a kind of earthly prison stopping us from enjoying what we have now in life?

You may say:- Should I not have ambitions?
I am not saying that we should not be ambitious, so please do not confuse ambition with wants. Despite the struggles that we face every day in life, I would say, never give up on your ambition but do not expect it to be easy and following our ambition and encountering problems in the way should not stop us from being happy, right?
Why is doing it the right way important? (The karma, I mean) 
Unless we change the way we think and perform our karma, can we be happy in life? Life is not meant to be easy, and all the difficulties and problems that we face in life are never a waste of time, if we learn and grow from them. Okay, you may believe what I am writing here is very bookish and not true, but if you consciously and mindfully make observations in life then you may agree.
There is no shortcut to anywhere worth going. Short cuts and taking easy way out never can bring happiness in life. However to be happy, we need to work towards something that brings meaning to each moment of our lives. The thing is that shortcut somehow manages to look like the easier path and, of course, the direct path, is very scary looking with lot of work involved, risk, and even the potential of failure. This contrast entices us to try the shortcut. Every once in a great while, it will work for you, but you will usually end up regretting it, if you do not believe me try it!! Or better still you may reflect on your past and may identify the truth in this…. I hope so -J
Why there are so many struggles in life?
Every struggle arises for a reason and prepares ordinary people for extraordinary success, whether it’s as simple as taking a job or as complex of being the victim of some injustice. The discomfort, uncertainty, vulnerability, pain and frustration, among other often unpleasant feelings that we experience create lasting change and growth in our lives.
Why should I think about this nonsense today?
Okay, I am writing this blog post but why should you read about this philosophical blog and be bored to death?
One day our life will flash before our eyes.  So let’s do our best every day to make sure it’s worth watching. The biggest regret one day could be missing out on life!
 Read biographies about famous personalities you admire and none would say they had it easy. As long as we don’t stop we are capable of achieving extraordinary growth and having extraordinary impact with our lives. Yes, it will take time and take consistent effort and may require many efforts and sacrifices too. So let’s celebrate: -
the frustration, the uncertainty, the anxiety, all this that we feel today and recognize for what it really is: a sure sign that we are moving forward.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. – Winston Churchill

Earth is rumbling; Oceans are churning


The planetary are re-aligning in difficult mathematical angle, as per astrology, and their position in the month of May and the first 15 days of June is not favorable.

The planetary tide indicates strikes, accidents, confrontations, natural calamities, rains and storms.
For people placed in high position it may be especially difficult....

Yes, we ALL can pray but then today science has advanced so much , so hopefully with all the new technology it will be able to predict and in the process help mankind.....

EARTH IS RUMBLING;
OCEANS ARE CHURNING, AS PLANETS REALIGN!!

How will be the month of May 2015 for you?

how will be the month of May 2015 for you


May 2014 monthly forecast
ARIES:
Planet Mars rules over your sign. The month of May and possibly June are probably the most significant and may be challenging months of this year for you. Please, Aries mark 4th through 31st, on your calendar and step back in this tricky period. I would like to give caution; things can get a little emotionally heated for you in second half of the month. There could be tension, anxiety and sudden outbursts especially mark the date-15th May with red circle on your calendar. Avoid making important financial and career decisions during this period. Please understand Aries, there is nothing to fear or feel superstitious about planetary tide but I have a belief having information about the current planetary situation in advance may prove to be important and most possibly you will be able to avoid problems too. Sun, the soul of the zodiac, is transiting through your sign as the month begins. There is a possibility, not necessarily true for all Aries, but it is a possibility, for sudden unexpected changes in your life. It is the nature of this universe that we have to keep growing and sometimes it is through tough and challenging times.

TAURUS:
Planet Venus rules over your sign. Taurus, May is a significant month of the year as celestial enemies, Saturn and Mars, will clash, especially from 14th through 31st, in YOUR sign. It will not be an easy month for you. Taurus, you will try to break through this situation, but your energetic impulses will be weakened by a powerful astral negativity and will not be enough. If you work for someone else, then the entire negativity will be focused mainly on your relationships with people you work with or work for. Everything will depend on you, on how you handle sensitive issues. Even if you do not reach conciliatory position you should not lead yourself into paranoid or state of anxiety. Your goal for this month should be to stay calm. In days from 19th, I foresee a period when you will try to bring a change in your personality, in the way you dress or style yourself. Outward changes will all be the reflection of some deeper changes going on within you. You may feel all charged up and may want change in life and restlessness within you may grow. Please Taurus, mark dates 12th through 24th on your calendar and especially circle- 15th and 23rd, these dates are not favorable for almost all and more so for YOU, as two celestial enemies, as per astrology, Saturn and Mars declare war and this drama will unfold in your sign!!

GEMINI:                                              
Planet Mercury rules over your sign and will begin its backward journey from 19th. From 4th of this month planets are at war and this may create restlessness in you and lower your tolerance level, as negative energy currents will be strong. It’s good to follow a caution not to act on your impulses, and ‘think, plan and then act’ should be the mantra to follow. You may have lots of energy, and basic instincts will be to act first and think later though. It will be important to resolve these situations as rapidly as possible, as even the smallest problem can turn into a large during this current period. From 19th, as your ruler goes retrograde, you may have some plans or ideas but it is my astrological advice for you, do not disclose or share your plans and ideas with others. Strange as it may sound to you, you may tap your intuition and hidden talents for solutions to your problems and what possible path you should be taking in coming months, and you will surprised how universe will provide guidance to you. Experiences may now come in dreams or when you are sitting alone in solitude. Loneliness and self imposed isolation may be present during this time (it’s only for few days).

CANCER:
Moon rules over your sign. May is a significant month of the year as planetary bitter enemies, Saturn and Mars, will clash, especially from 12th through 31st. Please mark dates - 15th and 23rd, these dates are not favorable for almost all. I foresee some unexpected developments for you. You see the amazing thing is that even if something negative happens, it will be only to change direction of your life and maybe later when you will look back then you will realize how important this period was for you. The very theme, the motto of the planets from last 2 months, as eclipses occurred, is to bring changes and progress (remember that you can’t progress without change). Misunderstanding and quarrels among close relationships or friends are also possible. Financial issues may come into focus; you are gearing up for some heated confrontations with someone close, it could be a friend or a close relation. Mars and Saturn are two allies getting into confrontational mood. Money could be the root cause of disagreements. It takes years to make bonds of love and relations but takes only few angry words to snap. To avoid such an outcome, (of course it is possible, I believe, this is the only reason we read monthly forecasts) pay special attention to your financial matters and relations. Planet Jupiter, the good luck planet, is transiting through your sign and it understands how important changes are to move forward in life.

 LEO:
Sun rules over your sign. May 2015 will not be a simple and an easy month. In first ten days of this month mundane, the little-little things, related with your everyday life are catching up with you. You may constantly be on move, your telephone may probably ring persistently, and you may need to do some paperwork and answer calls, uff!!!The two celestial enemies- Saturn and Mars- will be in confrontational mood and your ruler, Sun, will get caught in this celestial war from 15th. Please circle dates-15th and 23rd on your calendar, these are not favorable dates. Day’s close to these dates may also not be easy. Leo’s, I cannot say which specific area of your life will be affected, as I foresee, it may be everything. Life is connected, if something related with your professional life gets affected, how is it possible to remain happy and peaceful? And your personal well-being is connected with your health and this is indirectly connected with your relations! The negativity of planetary tide during this period may bring anxiety and tensions. However, on the other side, you will have enough strength to fight any problem, and future course of your destiny will be decided by your actions. Remember karma -everyone pays for the choices they make in life, so if you want to break your fall and rise in the future, then you have to do make improvements in your karma.

VIRGO:
Planet mercury rules over your sign. Presently, as the month opens, matter related with money may become strong; you may discover ways to increase your income and/or savings. Issues of power and control, or joint finances may come into focus. Virgo, here I want to mention this in my forecast- please be careful and choose your words with caution- in the first 15 days of this month, what you say and how you say is very significant. Though, for no fault of yours, your response to anger may be spontaneous, may be in retaliation, which means you are sure to quarrel with the other person/s. There may be disagreements at home or at work. Problems with someone you love, your close friend or relative may grow into a harsh separation or nasty tiff or it could be that you are anxious and tense about your loved ones well-being. From second half of the month, Saturn and Mars will clash, especially from 14th through 31st. However, everything will depend on you, on how you handle sensitive issues. Even if you do not reach conciliatory position you should not lead yourself into paranoid or state of anxiety. Your goal for this month should be to stay calm no matter what comes!

LIBRA:
Planet Venus rules over your sign. Last month there was a lunar eclipse on 4th April, which continues to cast its shadow till the first week of this month. Something may end or may reach final stages. The surge of emotional energy giving restlessness or frustration may push you to get something out of your system. You probably want to say something or do something, and this something is very important for you. You need to avoid blaming outside circumstances or other people for your own frustrations. Days from 14th through 31st, may not be easy. Misunderstanding and quarrels among close relationships or friends are also possible. Financial issues may come into focus; you are gearing up for some heated confrontations with someone close, it could be a friend or a close relation. Mars and Saturn are two allies getting into confrontational mood, and with Sun also getting drawn in this celestial war from 15th, it can bring legal hassles too. Money could be the root cause of disagreements. Circumstances don’t have prescribed responses. You don’t need to base your reaction toward something that happens to you based on how others have responded previously. It takes years to make bonds of love and relations but takes only few angry words to snap. To avoid such an outcome, (of course it is possible, I believe, this is the only reason we read monthly forecasts) pay special attention to your financial matters and relations. Taking a strong stand over any issue is astrologically not advised this month. This is the transitional period of your life.

SCORPIOS:
As per Vedic astrology, planet Mars rules over your sign and this planet of energy is churning your source of income and savings sector. The two celestial enemies- Saturn and Mars (your ruler) - will be in confrontational mood and on 15th, Sun, too will get caught in this celestial war. Please circle dates-15th and 23rd on your calendar, these are not favorable dates. Day’s close to these dates may also not be easy.  Since it is your ruler that is involved in this celestial war, it is very difficult to say exactly what specific area of your life will get affected because everything be it your relations, health, work or money, everything is related with YOU, directly or indirectly. I have a belief that we should not get depressed or tense because of tough planetary periods in our lives, on the contrary, think of them as phases of transformation or changes. Every individual has its own way of peering in and looking deep into its own soul to evaluate and evolve, Scorpio, in this process you may look at your past near 4th and this introspection will help you forward.

SAGITTARIUS:
Planet Jupiter rules over your sign. The days, from 1st through 9th, mark the possibility of financial gains, fulfillment of some desire, or may be good and pleasant time with your close relatives and friends. For those in love this period will be extra special. Now, let me come to the second part of my predictions for you, please circle days 15th through 31st, these days may not be easy. Saturn and Mars, the two bitter celestial enemies, set a field of battle where you will have to act as a soldier with sword to fight all your adversaries to win. Planetary tide indicates tensions and anxieties concerned with daily work routine, children or in love matters. There may be someone at work or home, maybe a colleague or general atmosphere that may bother you. Another possibility, for young married couple, could be anxiety or tensions in planning for ‘baby’. If you already have children, then the concern for your children, may be related with your children’s career/education / marriage, may especially be high. Well, that’s life…adding adventures and remarkable accomplishments to those who persist and sustain all. No matter how bad present circumstances are, have faith in your abilities. If, someone says or does a thing that displeases you, going down the path of revenge, even in your thoughts is not good Karma. We are the creator of our destiny through our Karmas.

CAPRICORN:
Planet Saturn rules over your sign. Capricorn, from 1st through 10th, are professionally significant, something significant is reaching its final stage. Give a lot of thought, time and energy to career decisions you make during this period or else you may just regret later. A sudden job opportunity, or something related with regards to career, home, or property matters is also possible. Yes, hardworking and sincere Capricorns like work, but do not overwork yourself, try and maintain a balance in your personal and professional life as planets may push you and there will be no in-between situation. From 4th, the two celestial enemies- Saturn (your ruler) and Mars - will be in confrontational mood and on 15th, Sun, too will get caught in this celestial war. Please circle dates-15th and 23rd on your calendar, these are not favorable dates and may prove to be especially challenging for you and for no reason or fault of yours, there may be arguments or heated discussions, testing your patience. Misunderstanding and quarrels among close relationships or friends are also possible. Financial issues may come into focus; you are gearing up for some heated confrontations with someone close, it could be a friend or a close relation.  

AQUARIUS:
As per Vedic astrology, planet Saturn rules over your sign. Aquarius is an airy sign and you think a lot, you keep exploring what may happen in future, and I am very positive whatever you are imagining in your mind will never happen, something totally different will occur in your near future. In first ten days of this month, if you want to travel or plan to travel maybe to a foreign country, planets look promising. On personal front, your relationship with your brother/sister/cousins may change as the events will unfold. From 15th, Saturn and Mars, the two celestial enemies, will get into difficult astrological angle and for you it may be a sort of test, however the experience will help you and will facilitate in your personal growth in some way. On or dates close to 15th and 23rd, planets are at war and this may create restlessness in you and lower your tolerance level, as negative energy currents will be strong. Issues over your home life will take precedence. Where you live and your family life will be in the spotlight, in two months from 18th. Another possibility, you may look for new career opportunities for which you may have to move to a different place, especially if your job is transferable. The month of May and June are very significant months for work and also property matters.

PISCES:
As per Vedic astrology, planet Jupiter rules over your sign. From 1st through 14th, is a good time to clear your bills, settle some of your debts, or pay your taxes/insurance. From 4th, the two celestial enemies- Saturn (your ruler) and Mars - will be in confrontational mood and on 15th, Sun, too will get caught in this celestial war. The month of May and possibly June are probably the most significant and may be challenging months of this year for you. Please circle dates-15th and 23rd on your calendar, these are not favorable dates. It will be a very busy period for you. You will get opportunities to meet new people and traveling is also possible. From 18th, opportunities may come through visits, short trips; messages, emails, or they could come through contacts or through your siblings, friends, colleagues or may be your neighbors. You may increase your knowledge and skills set. If you are related with media, communications, sales or marketing, this period will be especially significant for you. Another possibility, you may receive some news that may disturb you. Destiny is strange, whether you want change or not, but events/circumstances will create situations for change. Sometimes you just need to let life happen the way it is meant to. You cannot spend your life stressing about things that are outside of your control. Try to relax, and let things play out naturally. Embrace the unknown, as this is where you will be surprised the most!!
