Krishna and the Star System!

Lord Krishna was an Avatar, which means a special highly evolved soul, which descended on this Earth to accomplish tasks related to reestablishment of human values and to curb the negative forces. In case of an Avatar the time selection becomes more important due to importance of various tasks.

Krishna was born with both his ascendant and the natal Moon falling in the Rohini Nakshatra. The main deity of Rohini Nakshatra is Lord Brahma the creator. So for all affairs of this Earth this nakshatra becomes most important. In order for Krishna to take help of the Mayavik (delusive) force on Earth in order to accomplish many difficult tasks his birth in this Nakshatra was necessary.

This Nakshatra gave Lord Krishna a special charisma for mesmerizing those who would not listen to him otherwise.

Rohini Nakshatra gave focus and great perseverance in order to accomplish difficult tasks such as killing the ruler Kansa and many other demons.

Lord Krishna was born in Rohini nakshatra.
It was due to Rohini nakshatra that Lord Krishna’s life was a presentation of esoteric romance in order to lure the wayward human souls back to the divine realms. Planet Moon and Venus connected with the star were responsible for Lord Krishna’s extremely attractive and sweet personality with polite mannerism. Rohini Nakshatra is a Rajsik Nakshatra so it gave lord Krishna an action oriented personality, yet due to his divine origin he remained pure as a lotus in a pond of dirty water.

Listen What Mercury Has Got To Say!

The Mercury in Hindu Mythology

Mercury is the son of the Moon. Moon conquered the three worlds and performed the Rajsu yagna, the sacrifice which gives lordship. Many gods and goddesses served him; having achieved this glory he became arrogant. The Moon was the chief disciple of Jupiter, the guru of the celestial, and was also the favorite of Tara, Jupiter’s wife, who was attracted to him by his character and beauty.

Once when Jupiter was away Tara and Moon eloped. Jupiter returned home, found his wife gone, soon discovered her whereabouts, and several times sent messages to the Moon requesting his wife’s return. The Moon, however, repeatedly refused to comply with these requests, maintaining that Tara had accompanied him of her own accord and would leave only when she was satiated with him. These replies so infuriated Jupiter that he communicated them to his disciple Indra, the chief of gods who sent an ultimatum to the Moon.

When Moon refused to yield again, Indra began a war. Venus and the asuras (demonic celestial) took the side of Moon in this war, because of the ongoing enmity between Jupiter and Venus, while Lord Shiva, took the side of the devas. The war dragged on so long that the Great Rishis began to fear that the end of the world was near. Brahma asked Moon to return Tara. This the Moon did, but he returned her pregnant.

When Jupiter learned of this he was furious, and asked her for abortion. Tara had to do that but the baby which was a boy survived and he was radiant like gold. Seeing the child’s splendor both Jupiter and Moon hankered after him, and both claimed paternity, demanding that Tara declare the true father’s name. Tara was too embarrassed to speak. Finally, when Brahma questioned her in private she admitted that the Moon was the father of that wonderful child, who was the planet Mercury.

Sun & Saturn Conjunction

Sun-Saturn, particularly in a conjunction, square or opposition aspect, can have some difficulty seeing around the bend, or feeling like you have enough flexibility to make the turn. You may have the sensation of some external pressure on you, and with Saturn it’s often in the form of some authority (boss, government, time pressure).

There is an element of illusion to this, or perhaps a point of exaggeration. I am not saying that your situation is not real, but I am saying that it may feel worse than it is, and since feeling is what we humans register first, I just want to keep that up front. Yes you have to focus on keeping time, and being on time, but time is a space to work within, rather than a thing that is merely closing in.

In the best case scenario, indeed, no matter what, the message of Sun-Saturn is get it done. Get done whatever you feel you need to get done. The Sun late in a sign is urging completion and closure; Sun-Saturn, challenging though it may be, is offering you some strength, a structure to work in, and an island somewhere accessible on the emotional sea.

Given the whole gestalt, there are two things to keep an eye on. One is motivation. You must keep yourself motivated, preferably by something other than fear. It might be the future reward of having a clear desk and a clear mind.

The other is that you must be your own boss. You are the one who must be accountable to yourself, and by extension, either accountable to others or having no need to be so. The essence of the Saturn principle is take over your life. Stand up in your own skeleton. When someone manifests as a shadow-parent, end the discussion politely and take over that responsibility. It’s not about them — it’s about you.
