Retro 2014:07: Rajasic Solar phase 31st Mar - 15th April

Dear friends, as mentioned in the earlier posts, the annual 4.5 month period of Saturn Retrograde, represents a withdrawal, inversion, decreas of Saturn's effects. And thus represents a period of imbalance between Solar and Saturnine energies. During this period, the withdrawal of Saturnine energies, represent an overabundance of Solar/ Rajasic energies. And this abundance of Solar/ Rajasic energies is even more magnified by yet another additional prevailing Rajasic solar period: Chaitra Shukla Paksha from 31st Mar- 15th April. The first nine days of which are celebrated in India as Chaitra Vasant Navratri. The ninth day is Ram Navaratri, the birthday of Lord Rama, an avatar represents the apex and zenith of Solar energies.

This year, this highly Solar period of Chaitra Shukla Paksha begins from 31st March, Chaitra Pratipada, the first Moon, and concludes on Chaitra Purnima, full Moon on 15th April. From the very day of first Moon, there is a gradual increase of Solar/ Rajasic energies, day after preceding day, until the apex of Full Moon on 15th April. Check graph below, it represents an extra hump/ spike on the Orange phase of Increasing Retro.

For the Sun ruled people or people with negative Saturn, this period of  15 days of overabundance of Rajasic energies are ideal for all kinds of hyper accelerated breakthroughs, forward motion, progress, energy and enterprise. They are advised to utilize to use this period with the maximum forward motion possible, progressive activity.

However for the Saturnines, benefic Saturn people this period of  15 days brings all kinds of breakdowns, backward motion, retreat, lethargy, exasperation, feelings of futility and depression. It's a period of amplified and concentrated karmic cleansing for them. Every day might feel like a mountain to be crossed, the simplest of tasks might feel burdensome to the extreme. Their reserves of patience might be taxed to the extreme. Older topics and issues, forgotten ghosts of the past are often resurrected during this period, and they may have to address these issues once again. Physically, Saturnines have to guard their diet, and avoid all kinds of Rajasic, heat producing foods. Regressing and retreating as much as possible, they should try to stay away from all kinds of arguments, and debates.

Personally, being Saturnine, a Saturn ruled person, I have faced quite a lot of Karmic challenges these last three days since Sunday because of which even uploading this post itself was quite a task. As a part of the personal Karmic process, I will try to update this post by regular updates on this increasingly, super Rajasic/ Solar phase of next 14 days. A highly regressive, karmic, purging period for all us Saturnines. A period which we can maximise our personal Karmic cleansing by silence, retreat, and maximum regression.
