Super Moon's Play with the Earth: The event and its effects

Everyone is looking forward to the splendid phenomenon of Moon’s interesting play with Earth on 27th-28th September 2015 and that has already created a lot of buzz all across the globe.

This is quite justified as it is the 4th consecutive Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in the last two years, a rare occurrence called a tetrad.

Not just this, it is also the second and most powerful Super Moon this year, when the Moon comes closest to Earth in its elliptical orbit. This means the Moon will look BIG and RED.

In the US, Canada, and Central and South America, it will begin on the evening of September 27, 2015. In Europe, South/East Asia, Africa, the Arctic, and in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans it starts after midnight on September 28, 2015.

Since we have the Harvest Moon, Super Moon and Blood Moon this time all together, let’s first understand what these terms mean before we move to their interactions with the folks on the planet.

Harvest Moon: the full moon that is closest to the Spring/Autumnal equinox. Good time for new beginnings.

Super Moon: when the moon is closer the earth due to its rotation and orbit. This is usually a time where the energetic effects of the moon and emotions run high and are felt stronger.

Blood Moon: when the earth casts a shadow on the moon causing the suns light to hit the moon and make it appear red. (The actual color depends on the earth’s atmosphere, the amount of dust etc. )

The effects of this phenomenon on the people on Earth will be high on emotional affairs. Due to Moon’s powerful interaction with the Earth’s energy, it may cause emotional disturbances like depression, a sinking feeling of helplessness, mood swings etc. During this phase, there is also a heightened sensitivity giving rise to a greater awareness of the spirit world and the life beyond the materialistic sphere. 

Also since the eclipse occurs in Aries, it may also result in aggression and outbursts of anger. So an advice for everyone should be to maintain their calm and just adapt to the fresh energy with acceptance to make full use of it in the positive direction. It is over to us all how we want this rise in consciousness to change our world. Think of this Eclipse as a gateway into a new beautiful world where we will all have a deeper understanding of humanity, our ways of contribution to mankind and what life is all about.

Baahubali: The Astrological Symbolism!

The movie Baahubali is breaking all records making its way to be the highest grosser of the year. 
Interestingly, this movie has a lot of instances where we see a direct connect of the story with higher means of life. Yes I am talking about Astrology. Let us see how the movie relates with the phenomenon throughout its play.

When the movie begins, we see Sivagami crossing the river drowning herself but keeping the baby to the surface. Here we see a very strong emotional connect between a mother figure and a son. In Astrology, moon denotes ‘mother’/’’grandmother’. Also it symbolizes all water bodies. This scene indicates that how the amplified power of Moon (Mother +Water) could save the child from getting drowned. Also the soldiers running after her could do no damage signifying the fact that Mars(representative of warrior/soldier) debilitates or loses strength in Moon’s zodiac sign Cancer, a primary rule of Vedic Astrology.

Sometime later, we see that Avanthika is scolded for the design on her hand and told that a girl into self-beautification cannot be a good warrior. Venus signifies Beauty,Love and Creativity while Mars shows a passionate warrior. In astrology Mars and Venus are enemies. This is echoed in the movie when the leader of the group reconsiders her decision of sending Avanthika to MahishMati after noticing the beautiful design on her hand. Also, it is shown profoundly in the movie how Avanthika’s look changes when she is shown fighting as a warrior (tied hair, dark intense look), to the stunning glamorous look when she falls in love, singing songs with her partner, hereby signifying the impact of Venus.

We also see that Baahubali (personification of the planet Mars), carries a Shivalinga with him on his way to the top. Lord Shiva is represented by the planet Saturn and the planet Mars is said to be exalted( most powerful) in Saturn’s sign Capricorn. This is illustrated in the movie as it is shown how Baahubali carries the shivalinga, which further increases his strength and he successfully reaches the peak of the hill in all his glory.

In the end we see that Baahubali wins over Bhallala Deva during the war as Sivagami feels that he is wiser than the latter. Here we see that a very interesting astrological principle of permanent friendship between planets comes into picture. In Astrology, Jupiter representing wisdom, knowledge and righteousness is considered to be Mars’s best friend. Baahubali takes care of the innocent people and finds out an effective solution to save their lives while fighting with the enemy. This noble and just nature of Baahubali combined with his passion to save his own people, puts him on the winning side, astrologically revealing the impact of the wisdom given by Jupiter to his friend Mars that makes him the winner.

These are just a few of the numerous instances from the movie that have been presented. The entire movie is symbolic of how astrology completely connects with human affairs in all amazing ways.
