An Ayurvedic View At Venus and Mars

Hi Every One!

Today, we want to share with you the importance of this time of the year. Earlier today, Venus entered the constellation of Leo. Venus is going to be in Leo until July 21st. When Venus enters Leo, the compassion that Venus cultivates is at its peak. Think of Leo as acceleration, as royalty.

Now, on July 13 Venus is going to be conjunct Mars. What that means is that the compassion that Venus cultivates and is at its peak needs to take place, needs to be applied. Mars is all about action, application, Mars is guts.

If you want to think in terms of chakras, think of Venus as the heart chakra, compassion, empathy for our community and for whatever we do, whatever our job is. And then, think of Mars as the solar plexus, let’s actually do something about it.

Compassion and empathy without action are pretty much useless.

What does that mean? Starting today and until July 21st, it is very important to first focus on what we really want to do to benefit our community, our immediate and greater community, and then actually take action, make it happen, at least take the first step, which is always the hardest.

The planets are always on our side. Vedic astrology says that the name for the planets is graha. Graha in Sanskrit, means to grasp, to have hold of. If you recognize a similarity between the word graha in Sanskrit and the verb to grasp in English, it is because both languages have the same Indo-European origin.

So the planets grasp, have hold of our mind, whether we believe it or not. Since the planets want to always help us, knowing when to do what in conjunction with the help of the celestial bodies, is truly giving us an unfair advantage in life.

Na’maste kala! May we all be well, adapt and thrive! -Tim and Vie
