Rahu enters Cancer and Ketu

Rahu enters Cancer on 9th September, 2017, where it remains up to 23rd March, 2019. During this time Ketu will remain in Capricorn. During the course of the stay of these planets in the signs Cancer and Capricorn the axis will be stationary and will create serious malefic influences at: 

-0 degree starting from 8th June, 2017, to 7th October, 2017; 
-20 degree from 13th January, 2018, to 3rd April, 2018; 
-11 degree from 27th June, 2018, to 26th September, 2018;

Taurus: The Bull-April 21-May 21-2

– that they are materialists in the very sense of the word. Those born under the sign of Taurus are very talented at acquiring and consolidating wealth and power, which they seek mainly for the purpose of ensuring their own safety and survival and that of their offspring. They are not only earthly, but down-to-earth-practical, nurturing, home loving, conventional, conservative, moralistic. They tend to have great stamina and endurance, both mentally and physically. They also have a knack for focusing their energies toward a specific goal and moving relentlessly, if slowly, toward it.

More often than not, Taureans get what they go after. There is a negative side to Taureans’ materialism. They may be possessive, controlling, and overconcerned with money, security, creature comforts, and convenience; they may even be prone to ostentation and avarice. In matters of the heart, they sometimes treat their partners as personal property, and they are capable of fierce jealousy and even violent anger.

depending on certain aspects of Taureans’ astrological charts, they may be melancholy by nature, world-weary, brooding, and pessimistic, or may be hedonistic and inclined to exaggerated extroversion and a lack of self-control.

These unattractive traits are apt to come to the fore, however, only when Taureans’ misconstrue their true roles as custodians and nurturers, stewardship must never be confused with ownership. If Taureans keep their balance and maintain their harmonious oneness with nature, they will flourish. If they stray from the path, they risk being consumed by greed.

Astrology holds that plodding Taureans lack agility and liveliness of mind. They are said to be bullheaded and fixed in their ways: stubborn, tunnel-visioned, inflexible, impervious to the opinions of others. But their slow and burdened mental gait should never be mistaken for stupidity. Unlike Arians, Taureans think things through. Their ideas are carefully conceived, planted, tended, and harvested like crops.

Thus the sign of the Bull has produced some of the world’s most profound thinkers, among them Karl Marx and Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, Immanuel kant, Soren Kierkegaard, and Sigmund Freud. Even Taureans not gifted with single-minded genius often make reliable and conscientious workers because of their methodical and tenacious ways.

Where others may swerve from a task or leave it undone, Taureans will preserve. Anatomically, Taurus is associated with the throat and hence the voice. many Taureans are noted for their musical talents, others for their distinctive vocal qualities. Some astrologers believe parents are well-advised to give Taurean children early musical training, since many of these youngsters have innate musical abilities. The great jazz musicians Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald were born under the sign of the Bull, as were actors Lionel Barrymore, Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles.

Yin and Yang

Are Yin and the Yang Qualities too?

Yes. In Chinese astrology, yin and yang are qualities. But yin and yang are far more powerful than our qualities because yin and yang are the two major and only forces in the Chinese philosophical universe. For them, everything present in the universe is either yin or else yang. Everything. Tables. Chairs. Light bulbs, cousins, aunts, uncles and kitchen sinks!

in a way, yin and yang can be compared, in Western culture, to the application in certain languages of the qualities of “masculine” or “feminine. A shoe is also feminine. Parks are masculine. lakes too. Feet are masculine. So are eyes and foreheads. But mouths and even teeth are feminine. Worry is masculine. So are gossip and lipstick and panty hose.

Though we may want to look for sexual significance in the application of gender to nouns, there is none. That’s what makes it difficult to remember from one language to the next whether a noun is considered masculine or feminine. Is the application of gender to nouns then perfectly arbitrary? Well, it must have come from somewhere. But nobody knows exactly how, when and why.

There are no genders in the Chinese language. But, without saying how, when or why Chinese philosophers can feel whether a thing or a person or an idea is yin or yang. it’s just there. a known fact. Yin is rooted in the sun. Its goal is darkness. Yang is rooted in Earth. Its goal is light. like everything else, each Chinese animal sign is either yin or yang.

Rat-Yin: HorseYang: Ox-Yin: Goat-Yang: Tiger-Yang: Monkey-Yin: Cat-Yin: Rooster-Yang: Dragon-Yang: Dog-Yin: Snake-Yang: Pig-Yin

What Does It Mean? What is Yin? What I Yang? To be perfectly frank, I am not sure what yin is or what yang means. I have read a lot of books on the subject. Still, the concept is not easy for my logical little occidental head to grasp. Chinese philosophy is complicated even for the Chinese people! I’ll be brief.

What Is Yin? The Chinese say that yin people are mainly interested in what happens in groups. They are frequently preoccupied with the organization of collective or communal events. They are attracted to politics. They are self-confident. They trust nobody. They need success to survive. They worship efficiency. They are always questing after well-being for them-selves and for those they love and like. They have good health and long life but may be prone to accidents. They don’t smile a lot. They dress conservatively. They are not spiritual. They love their families. They are material.

The way I see it, yin is open, civilized, interested in the good of others. Yin likes parties, feasts, holidays, sex and anything else that provides it with intense company. Yin is not feminine. But it is sometimes said to be subjective. Yin is active in the world. other-directed. Public. It is different from an equal to yang.

What is Yang? The Chinese say that Yang people are loners. They are individualistic. They are meditative. They are spiritual. They smile a lot. They have no sense of groups or family. They have delicate health. They like to dress for show. They eschew chains of command. They love nature. They are nonmaterial. Their only goal in life is personal development. They are objective. They keep their own counsel. The way I see it, yang is closed, unsociable, private. Yang likes books, music, gardening, long walks or anything that brings him closer to himself and nature. Yang is solitary, Self-directed. Yang’s equilibrium comes from within.

Chinese astrology does not concern itself with celestial bodies. If Chinese astrologers look to nature for influence, they consult the climatic changes on earth, the seasons or the moon’s effects on the earth.
