Jupiter retrograde is generally associated with philosophical and spiritual introspection and reflection.
Jupiter went Retrograde in the sign of aquarius on 20th June 2021 because of which we may find ourselves questioning our societal values and thinking about how we fit or don’t fit into society.


If you have been running your life or operating under a certain belief system, you may find that this Jupiter Retrograde energy shakes things up a bit, and encourages you to look at things from a different vantage point.

During this period, it is the time when you question your beliefs, values that society organisation imposed upon us and not take everything at face value. Retrograde Jupiter is not favourable for speculation, investments or gambling as chances of winning are less during this period


To direct this energy in a productive way, use this retrograde period to think about how your beliefs and the way you are choosing to see things are coloring the experience of your life.
Perhaps a destructive behavior like greed or addiction is out of control. In this case, Jupiter retrograde will offer a chance to recognize and admit the problem. Things may get so out of control that an intervention or some drastic event must occur to shake you out of your complacency or ignorance.


Once Jupiter stations direct you should have come to terms with the relevant issues and be ready to leap ahead toward success and happiness.
Even while retrograde, bountiful Jupiter wants to help you figure out how to grow and change and become the best version of yourself. Use this time wisely — it’s a gift!

Mercury goes Direct 22nd June 2021

Mercury will station direct on June 22 2021 — putting an end to its retrograde antics and allowing us to resume some sense of normalcy within communication, timing, and tech.

It’s important to keep in mind that your situations may.. speed up, but not as their regular speed.

Mercury’s retrograde, this post-shadow period will come to an end on July 7th when the retroshade phase ends.

There’s still a little bit of a lag in getting all things moving again.
Sometimes we blame ourselves that Mercury retrograde is bad, creates mis understandings but this is a good time to sit back and review where you put your energy in your life!
You will now see those problems that arose during Mercury’s retrograde in June more clearly and work slowly towards alterations.

The Throat Chakra-Vishuddha

The Throat Chakra in Sanskrit is called Vishuddha that means “especially pure”.

In Hindu astrology or jyotish, the graha (planet) ruling the throat chakra is Buddha or Mercury.

The Element is Ether ( Akash).

Known as the Vishuddha chakra, it governs all areas of the mouth, jaw, throat, and thyroid gland. When the throat chakra is imbalanced, you may experience:

• hoarseness

• sore throat

• thyroid problems

• laryngitis

• neck pain

Deficiencies in the this chakra often contribute to a number of physical ailments that can include thyroid imbalances, hearing problems, tonsillitis, mouth ulcers, tinnitus, bronchitis, asthma and ear infections.

Signs of an underactive throat chakra:

◦ Introverted

◦ Insecure

◦ Fear of Speaking Up

◦ Small Voice

Signs of an overactive throat chakra:

◦ Arrogance, lying or manipulation

◦ Condescending

◦ Rude

• Inability to Listen

◦ Gossiping

◦ Overly Critical

An overactive throat chakra leads us to use our voice in negative ways; tendencies toward criticising, lying, gossiping, abusive language and interrupting all reflect over-activity, as do speaking inappropriately and spending too much time trying to make oneself heard.

On the other hand, excessive shyness, secretiveness, and an imperceptible voice, as well as being unable to express oneself, are the result of an underactive throat chakra.

In addition, a blocked or unbalanced throat chakra leads to a variety of physical ailments, including laryngitis, thyroid disease, dental problems, TMJ, and neck pain, in addition to excessive or compulsive eating.

Here are some self-care tips and tools you can use to strengthen your Throat Chakra.

Methods to help balance the Throat Chakra:

• Be an active listener. Try to lean into conversations. Stop trying to think of what you will say when the person stops talking.

• Spend time in silence. Rest your throat chakra for a bit. This can be great for people who simply talk too much!

• Get a neck massage.

• Vocalizing, singing, humming & chanting

• Speak your truth

• Allow yourself to share your feelings, thoughts and ideas

• Stop judging yourself and others

• Practice allowing of self and other

• Journal

• Gargle with salt water

• Rest your throat

• Lying on your back and consciously relax your jaw, neck and throat

• Express yourself through creative activities

• Deep breathing exercises

• Exercising the vocal cords can dispel blockages in the fifth chakra.

• Engage in Head Rolls and Neck Stretches

This yoga warm-up decreases stiffness in your upper back, neck, and jaw. Each of these areas can hold incredible amounts of tension and need to be stretched regularly.

In addition to body positions and breathing techniques, yoga also gives us sound and vibration to create Throat Chakra healing. The Throat Chakra vibrates with the sound “HAM” (pronounced HAUHM).

PRACTICE MINDFUL EATING.

You might probably ask yourself, how does this relate to your Throat Chakra? It does relate as the fifth chakra governs your mouth, tongue and throat. So whatever you consume, or eat, can create a serious blockage, and vice versa, blocked Throat Chakra affects your relationships with food.

Ask yourself:

• Do I speak my truth?

• What story do I want to tell the world in 2019?

• How can I best serve others with my voice?

• Do I use my words to hurt or heal?

• Am I able to express myself creatively?

• Would I consider myself a gossip?

• What subjects am I anxious to talk about?

• How can I be even clearer when communicating?

• Am I being integral with my word?

• How can I strengthen my voice?

• Am I comfortable singing or humming aloud?

• Who in my life do I struggle to communicate with?

The Divine LOTUS

Lotus flower is a symbol of purity and divinity.

Primarily associated with the gods Vishnu, Brahma and Lakshmi, the flower’s opening petals symbolize spiritual awakening and the expansion of the soul.

The lotus is a flower that emerges from a very vile atmosphere, it usually blooms in muddy waters. However, despite its struggles, the lotus bud emerges from those waters, eventually demonstrating a magnificent bloom. Even after emerging from the mud, it remains unstained!

No wonder it is considered to be the most divine and is only awarded to those of the highest standing.

The lotus flower represents life.

Sometimes, our circumstances are not wonderful. We might find ourselves buried in conflict, hardship, or internal suffering. These conditions do NOT make us any less worthy or beautiful.

The ultimate aim of living beings is to perform its karma without bothering about the external factors, which is signified by Lotus flower.

Just because Goddess Lakshmi is seated on lotus, offering her 108 or 1008 lotus flower won’t help if you remain impure within mind.

Planet Sun and Combustion

Sun is hot and Burning planet with massive amount of heat .

Sun is the Karaka for dharma (righteous)

Sun is considered a mild malefic in Astrology. Sun is also your Ego.

Whenever Sun Dasha comes it will burn you (cause hardships) in order to purify you .

Sun wants you to be righteous and it wants to Purify you for your growth on soul level.

Whenever a planet is close to sun , it is known to be in combustion .

Combustion means ‘planet under fire’ .

That planet can cause you suffering in life until you learn to be pure .

This makes the planet very angry .

Earlier life will cause you to act in EGO in that planetary signification of life and cause suffering .

Anytime a planet is combust it is advisable refrain from ego (sun) in regards to its signification and act in righteous way (dharma) in regards to its significations so as to avoid suffering and being burnt by heat of sun.

For example mars when in combustion will make you ACT out of ego, cause anger in you and will cause you trouble till the time you don’t do righteous actions and avoid ego clash with your brothers.

When Venus in combustion , it will make you act out of ego in relationships and females.

If sun is winning the planetary war you will let your ego be bigger in relationships than your love.

Early life will cause suffering in relationships because of your inflated ego.

Extra marital relationship (Adharma) is a big no no when Venus is combust as the sun lights will expose the hidden things and cause trouble and suffering in relationships or females in order to purify you.

The best is to be pure and righteous with females and relationships in order to gain Venus.( love, wealth, luxury )

Sun may represent your EGO. For some people EGO will be blinding their intellect or the mind. The mind does not work well when SUPER EGO is close to it.

If Jupiter is combust then it means that EGO makes the person think that he/she knows everything and there is no need for a guide, GOD, Guru or teacher.

In most cases Mercury (Buddhi – intellect) the planet for logic and intellect is combust.

The reason for this is that Sun and Mercury never get away more than 28 degrees from each other.

This actually means that the power of their intellect is overpowered by a false ego.

SUN SIGN OR MOON SIGN ? What Resonates More?

When people talk about astrology, most of them talk about their Sun sign only.

Everyone knows about their sun sign, the sign you look up when you’re checking out your horoscope on newspapers and other sources.

It’s probably easier to find as compared to your other placements in chart.

However What people don’t know is that their moon sign may hold the most influence over their life.

Most people rely upon their westernised sun signs and read these online daily horoscopes which rarely resonate with them.

It is a rare possibility to have the same sun and moon sign in your birth chart unless and until you were born on the new moon day ( Amavasya) or one day ahead or after it.

Your moon sign can be easily looked up if you have an accurate time of birth, and birth location.

Moon is connected to mind in astrology. It denotes how you were nurtured in childhood and how you are going to be wired emotionally for the future.

Your moon sign is associated with your subconscious.

It represents the pervasive beliefs we adopt in childhood based upon our parenting that we often leave unexamined until well into our adult lives. Moon sign is more about your feelings and your habits. It can reveal more about your inner self and private life.

The influence of our subconscious (our moon) has over us is extremely powerful, because it governs our deepest understanding of the world, what we feel in our gut, and that understanding governs our actions.

Our Rishis gave the existence of moon as the reason for basis of Astrology.

Moon is closest to earth as compared to sun so it effects us the most. It changes sign in every two days while SUN changes Sign in every Thirty days.
