21B Case Study: Taurus Rising

Your ascendant is Taurus. You have the potential to undertake courageous initiatives in collaboration with select individuals with nurturing capabilities.

case-study-chart-for-taurus-rising-170208

Moon, Sun, Mercury and Saturn channel benefic energies through you. Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Rahu and Ketu channel energies which may impact you negatively at certain times. There are traditional practices to strengthen your benefic energies and sublimate energies that may impact you negatively. These are discussed and arrived at in individual coaching sessions.

Summary

Your strongest energy is the Moon energy. Moon energy is nourishing and nurturing. Strong Moon energy signifies an individual with affectionate nurturing qualities which flow into all their behaviors. Strength of the Moon energy gives indication of supportive mother (or maternal figures), social behavior, emotional peace, financial solvency, happy married life, inheritance from the mother’s side, as well as love and care in general.  In your case, the Moon also additionally gives you energy to pursue a career by taking up and bringing to fruition initiatives that channel nourishing and nurturing energies. The Moon energy channels very strongly through you. Consider it your best guide and supporter for your career.

Your Saturn energy is also very strong. Saturn drives the direction of your career. This Saturn energy is also likely to guide to finding your long term partner, who may very well be from your career area. This long term partner is likely to hail from a location distant from your birth place. Saturn will expect and motivate you to practice your career with perfection, spirituality, detachment, reliability with discipline, honesty, sincerity, stability, longevity. It gives consistency and enables detailed work over long periods of time.

Thus, the combination of the Moon energy and Saturn energy will be your most reliable guides in your life and career.

Mercury and Jupiter channel relatively weak energies through you. They are required for your career success. Mercury energy provides you with creative and analytical intelligence in your daily career activities. Jupiter energy gives insight into the mysterious and the occult, which you need for the career area you are most likely to choose (something concerning nourishing and nurturing).  You should, therefore, incorporate daily practices and have coaching sessions to strengthen Mercury energy and propitiate Jupiter energy.

Your Sun energy, signifying your father, is well meaning but weakly channeled through you. It is unable to be of support to you. This results in weakness in your ability to acquire and hold home and assets, as well as support from influential people and gains from investments. There are ways of strengthening the Sun energy through practices and coaching, which you should explore.

Your Mars energy is weak and negatively impacts your relationship with your Sun energy. This may cause you to have disturbed sleep and allergies causing inflammation in your body. You should explore ways to propitiate Mars energy.

Your Venus energy acts very negatively for you. It not only weakens your Sun and Mercury energy and is reflected in your sense that you need to substantially increase your ability to channel creative and affectionate energies as well as nourishing and nurturing energies towards children.

21B Case Study: Libra Rising

The ascendant point, in your Jyotish chart, is in the Libra zodiac sign (sidereal chart). This indicates that you are motivated and energized to set and achieve goals for yourself. Your goals are likely to be a mix of acquiring advanced knowledge and peace of mind. Acquiring a home and portfolio of financial assets may also be important to you. When you project your image in an ethical and balanced manner, you will likely come across as an attractive, intelligent, even charismatic, person to people at large. Those in one-on-one personal or business relationship with you, however, may sometimes see you as being passive, not assertive enough with your creative, affectionate and nurturing sensibilities.

case-study-chart-for-libra-rising-170208

Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Moon and the Sun channel positive energies through you. Mercury, Rahu and Ketu channel energies which have negative impact on you from time to time. There are therapeutic ways to strengthen your benefic energies and sublimate energies that may impact you negatively. These are discussed and arrived at in individual coaching sessions.

Summary of Your Karmic Strengths and Areas of Improvement

Overall, you have two very strong positive energies, of Venus and Moon, channeling through you. You have four positive, but weak, energies, of Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and Sun supporting you. You have one negative energy, that of Mercury, which from time to time misleads you through over analysis and wrongly presenting an apparently rational view of the world.

Karmic Strengths

Your Venus energy is positive and strong. It helps you set your goals and project your image. It is most supportive when you are active in:

  • acquiring knowledge
  • achieving peace of mind
  • acquisition and maintaining of home
  • acquiring financial assets portfolio and
  • focusing on your career and social status.

As you begin to accept these as your core goals in life, you will gain clarity on what broad direction you to take in your life.

Your Moon energy is strongly positive and flows to you through your mother. However, the Moon energy is in the shadow of Rahu, the north node of the ecliptic axis, in your birth chart. This causes you to make demands on your mother and from time to time be in conflict with her. Please be aware that the Moon energy, through your mother, gives you guidance in spiritual and material matters, including:

  • Social connections
  • Ethical matters
  • Relationship with authority figures
  • Pursuing advanced studies and
  • Long distance travel to expand and contribute to social connections.

These actions, driven by the Moon energy, open up the potential of you flourishing in your career and reflects positively in your social status.

Connecting directly, through appropriate breath-work, chanting and meditation, with the spiritual aspect of the Devi may ensure this strong Moon energy to continue to support you all your life, and at the same time free your mother’s energies for other ends. It will also help in dissipating the sometimes demanding / conflicting interactions you may have with your mother.

Successful American Entrepreneur: 21B Jyotish Initial Diagnostic and Success Path Assessment

Featured Image (c) Anuva Kalawar

This is an illustrative 21B Jyotish analysis  based on the sidereal chart of a successful business personality, who is very much in the news in 2016 (named Joshi Rabinez (not his real name) in this description). Some of you may guess who it is based on birth details, the initial diagnostic and success path assessment, presented below.

american-entrepreneur-chart-170208

Initial Diagnostic

Joshi Rabinez was born June 1971. An Aries ascendant, Joshi has a rather strong chart. Strong Mars (his ascendant ruler) makes him a driven personality. Mars being positioned very strongly in his 10th house of career shows he will make his career his top priority. Rahu (the North ecliptic node) is also placed, again in strength, in his career house, thus ensuring multiple career interests in parallel, in each of which Joshi would relentlessly work for success. The Moon in his birth chart is the ruler of his 4th house of mother and home. It is positioned to provide him ways to grow creatively and also be supportive of his romantic aspirations and to have children. The Sun in Joshi’s chart makes him courageous, visionary and risk taking. Saturn in his chart ensures Joshi has income and capital gains to build family wealth. All of these strengths together indicate that Joshi is very bright in many areas and has high social visibility.

Now to his weak areas: His communication style is combative and can come across as overly assertive and even abrasive (indicated by Mercury which signifies communication, rules his 6th house of competition and struggle and positioned to play a major role in his role as entrepreneur by virtue of its position in the 3rd house). He will have ups and downs in his married life and potentially have multiple marriages: the ruler of his house of marriage, Venus, is afflicted by Rahu from the 10th house: Joshi’s multiple career aspirations trump his capacity to sustain his marriage. Also, Joshi’s relationship with authority figures shows ongoing challenges, which may lead to potential failures are some key points in his career.

Summary of strengths and weaknesses: Joshi has the intelligence and the drive to achieve career and financial success in multiple areas. He is likely to come across as combative abrasive, thus not able to gather and sustain a core leadership team around him. His married life is likely to be overshadowed by his driven focus on career aspirations. He is likely to have difficulty in his relationships with authority figures as well as business and financial partners, potentially negatively impacting his business plans at some point.

This section of the report (deleted to preserve confidentiality) will typically drill down into specific details in actual cases: based on skype / phone interview which follows the horoscope analysis, as part of the service package.

 Success Path Assessment

Joshi Rabinez is well positioned for career and financial success. He will benefit through ongoing coaching in the areas of communication, marriage and in managing relationships with authority figures and business / financial partners.

This section of the report will typically drill down into specific details in actual cases: based on skype / phone interview which follows the horoscope analysis, as part of the service package.

Additional observations

For the near future, over the next two years (from April 2016): Joshi is currently going through a phase where he is ruled by Rahu, which makes him overextend (and overpromise results) himself into multiple career areas, albeit in creative ways – from now to the fall of 2017. He is likely to be in a relatively tough position to deliver his promised results, especially in late 2017. While he will be very driven and be able to deliver, especially in early 2018, he is likely to come up short vis a vis his relationships with his financial / business partners and advisors. Intensive coaching, in the three areas indicated above (communication, marriage and relationship with authority figures / partners), over the next year and half will help Joshi to increase probability of success.

Mapping Your Life With Jyotisha: A Tool To Help Your Material and Spiritual Quest

Mapping Your Life with Jyotisha

If you are reading this post, I will assume you have read my post on how Jyotisha can assess your karmic strengths and weaknesses, obtained a 21B report detailing your karmic strengths and weaknesses, and had your first interactive 21B coaching session on Skype. Now, you are on your way to becoming stronger and more independent, using the 21B Jyotisha tool kit.

Today, I share how Jyotisha can draw a life map for you, over a potential 120-year life span, with a time-line of the broad combination of karmic tendencies you were born with that will be in the driver’s seat during different times of your life. The karmic map is based on your birth chart but this is not set in stone; your efforts, including connecting with the Divya Shaktis in this life, have the potential to change the birth-based karmic map.

An overview of how this can be accomplished is shared here too. For on-going 21B coaching sessions, we use your 21B 120-Year Karmic Map[1] that is plotted into manageable 5 year intervals.  We can then use it to drill deeper to discover what to expect in the next one year, how to prepare yourself to make the most of it and move closer to what you are striving for, in an ethical and balanced manner.

21B 120-Year Life Map

21B Coaching Services creates your personal 120-Year Life Karmic Map based on your birth chart as the basis for our interactive services.  Your potential 120 year life span is partitioned into 9 different energy areas. In each of these areas specific karmic tendencies have the opportunity to work themselves out. These 9 areas represent:

  1. a) energies from each of the 7 celestial bodies that channel through you (which is described in your 21B Strengths and Weaknesses Report, if you have obtained it), and
  2. b) energies of Rahu (the deceiving energy) and Ketu (destroyer of material attachments).

The energy patterns with correspondent strengths and weaknesses of the celestial bodies are mapped in your birth chart and show the areas of your life you will gain rewards [and be enjoyable for you], and where you will face challenges. The karmic map shows specific calendar time intervals, with the longest act of 20 years and the shortest of 6 years.

The 120-year life span is a 9 Act play. The stage for each Act follows a different pattern for different individuals. A stage can be your home, neighborhood, your place of work, a distant university, and so on. The theme that will be played out in each Act is also outlined. In this way, the Karmic map shows what you could anticipate and prepare for major changes that occur, as you transition from one Act to another, from one stage setting to another. For example, a scene of 3-year duration may be about career. The script, during this phase could be about home-based (stage) career (theme). If the Karmic Map indicates this change, you can plan ahead of this anticipated transition to make it work for you – as in planning to raise a family and while having a career during this period.

An example of a Karmic Map, based on a well-known figure, is provided here for reference.[Karmic map and Karmic Strength Scale is copyrighted to 21B Coaching Services.]

Illustrative Example: Summary of 21B 120 Year Life Map

120-year-life-map-diagram-160919

The 21B 120-Year Life Map starts with your birth. It winds its way through various stages for each of the 9 Acts over a maximum of 120 year life span. It tells a story of what to expect and when, including the year and month. It also reveals how strongly you are equipped to successfully play in a particular Act in your life.  This assessment is provided in your 21B Karmic Strengths and Weaknesses report.This helps you become aware of the strengths you will need or have to succeed: whether it is:  analytical or creative intelligence,, courage, patience, passion or perseverance, or your ability to save or negotiate,, nurture and nourish. In this way, you can begin to strengthen the skills, attitudes, depth of assets you will need to succeed well ahead of the start of the Act.

In the illustrative example above, Act 2 is played out between 1971 and 1978. This individual experienced a very rough period between the ages of 11 and 17 years. His parents, if they had his 21B Life Map, could potentially have managed these years differently. They could have given him a more consistent nourishing and nurturing stage to live out his teen years. . Instead, the map shows it was left to him to figure things out for himself, in an unstable home environment.  Until his 36th year, the Karmic Map shows that this individual would have had lots of ups and downs with some lucky breaks. 21B mapping and coaching could have helped him navigate these years, to become even more productive and happier long before his 36th year.

The 21B 120-Year Life Map outlines the set of karmic tendencies you are born with, some strong and some not as strong.  When you become aware of your karmic tendencies, you can work on changing them and bring them into balance with each other. You can also become aware of what situations you will likely face year by year. And you can play like a champion in each of those situations. Champions usually work with a coach, at whatever game they are playing. This is what the 21B life-coaching aims to do:  to make our clients become champions of their life, for both material and spiritual goals they may be striving for.

Five Year Detailed Karmic Map

Like most of us, I am practical and down to earth. Sure, it’s great to have the 9 Acts of a potential 120-year life span laid out, but wouldn’t it be better to know how the next 5 years will play out for us so that we have more control over changes we’d need to make – for both material and spiritual quest? Moreover, can we make changes to an Act or even the stages and scripts?

Let me explain how I use Jyotisha in my coaching services  After I create your personal 21B Karmic Life Map, it is further broken down into Five Year Maps which detail sub-periods within one Act. The longest sub-period within an Act is about 3 years, and the shortest is about 6 months. During this time, you could experience a transition from one Act to another. Think of the sub-periods as multiple scenes within one act of the play. Each scene brings out its own sub-theme, within the over-arching theme of a particular Act. There are 9 scenes which make up each Act and each is played out for a specific sub-period.

With Jyotisha, you can have your life map set up in acts, scenes, even down to a script outline, year by year (I will write about the 21B Twelve Month Script Report in my next post). How you traverse the map, what you strive for and what directions you take, and how you act on the stage is all up to you. The more  you become aware of these the better you are as a master of improv in your own life’s play! And your 21B coach can help make become a champion on your life’s stage, in your material and spiritual quest.

______________________________________

A few of you may be entirely new to Indian Astrology. The following may help:

Indian Astrology is known as Jyotisha (Joh-thish-uh): that which shows us Light. It is a tradition rooted in the 10,000 year old living tradition based on the Vedas. This living tradition of Jyotisha continues to develop and deepen with new heuristics continually added through rigorous trial and testing among expert practitioners[1]. Jyotisha divides an individual’s life into specific segments over a 120-year lifetime (our life-span has actually decreased since ancient times!). Many of you may already know that Jyotisha has many powerful features, which require detailed computations of planetary positions, aspects, conjunctions and eclipse nodes and so on. It divides an individual’s life into 9 specific segments of different period lengths over a potential 120 year life span. It then predicts what karmic experiences will be acted out during each of those 9 life segments (called major periods) and 9 sub-periods within each of the longer 9 main periods.

The Jyotisha birth chart represents the karmic tendencies each of us are born with, based on past lifetimes of experiences.

We anticipate and predict what karmic experiences will occur during these major life periods, as well as the sub-periods within those periods.

Each major life period detailed in our horoscope shines light on different parts of our true nature that we are born with.

So the major periods and sub-periods are presented to us in the detailed readings, that follow the initial reading. But our daily mental, physical, and spiritual actions within those periods is what we have the capacity not only to manage—but expand–for our own personal freedom.

The Jyotisha tradition does not stop at a reading. It is a practice that helps you acquire tools for empowerment.

This is where our individual agency, creative potential, and empowerment comes into play. I’m passionate about helping you energize and re-discover creative potential and empowerment despite any obstacles in lived experiences – or even what a birth chart may indicate.

Our agency is deepened through concentration and meditative work. The stronger the sense of agency, the better the chances of easily expiating past karmas and not picking up new ones.

Cleansing our karmas is manifested through embodied connection with the Light Energies, called Divya Shaktis (Div-yuh Shuk-thees).

Indian traditions have devised, through extensive testing, specific combinations of breath work, mantra chanting, setting up altars and meditative visualizations to evoke these Divya Shaktis within us (and that is where Chakra work comes becomes relevant). These methods are prescribed based on your chart and experience.

I can give pointers to which specific Divya Shaktis can be called in a specific phase of your life, to fortify your journey, if you are interested.

Since you have read up to this point, I have a few questions for you:

What interests you in having an jyotisha reading?

Do you have any specific questions? I encourage you to ask 3-5 questions to keep in your heart and mind. This will also help me in your reading and our conversation.

One of the challenges in completing a birth chart is that it speaks to what karmic tendencies you were born with. It does not speak to what has already happened in our life, since your birth, which would have changed your karmic energy configuration.

That takes multiple interactive sessions, covering the major periods you have already experienced[2]. This is something I also offer through my practice, 21BanyanTree.com, both over Skype and in-person. We can then develop a Life Map for your material and spiritual quest.

It would be a pleasure to do an initial reading, which can assess your strengths and weaknesses, based on your birth chart. Please let me know what specific questions you have in mind, which you want to get a peek into through this birth chart reading using Jyotisha, the Indian approach to Astrology (write to me at 21Banyantree@gmail.com ).
