It's challenging to see how our problems can actually be the solution.
It's impossible most of the time to turn our weaknesses into our strengths. Rarely do we harvest resources in our weakest moments.
The reality is, these are the very experiences that can change and transform our lives. These are moments of power if we choose to use them.
Our jyotish charts are a resource for finding our power, our gifts and our strengths. The purpose of our jyotish charts is to share with us why we are alive, why we have incarnated. It shows us our strengths and our weaknesses. Rarely do we use these areas of weakness to maximize ourselves though.
Traditionally, jyotish has been used as a means of creating greater awareness, a tool of insight. Often though our challenges, our karmas, are shown to us as a hardship that may not be overcome in this lifetime. It's true, the jyotish chart is a map of our accumulated karmas thus far, but it is important to remember this energy is not stagnant- is is constantly changing- as are we.
I use the jyotish chart to maximize the energy of change, the potential for transformation. In my classes and personal sessions, my intention is to always empower my clients to use resources that will keep them evolving, moving, changing and transforming towards their highest potential.
But when we are stuck in darkness, it is often hard to see the light switch.
Money problems, worries and anxieties, are part of this paradigm of "stuckness" that can keep us in a state of overwhelm, feeling powerless, as a result of not being able to see ourselves clearly. The number one complaint I hear from clients is that they have a lack of money. The roots of this money issue can be seen in the jyotish chart, but ultimately it is an inability to nourish ones self, to receive nourishment from life.
The second house is vital to determine our relationship with money. It is the house of nourishment, how we are fed. Literally it is connected to the time immediately after birth, and how we were nourished directly after we were born as well as during our childhood. It is the house of food and the body parts connected to the second house are mouth and throat as well as speech. But the second house is also a wealth house. Money in fact is a source of nourishment, a way of being fed.
What is your relationship with nourishment?
We can look to the second house to determine our relationship with life nourishment, but really all of our relationships are determined by Venus, the karaka (indicator) of love and relating. Venus is the planet of love and allows the nourishment to flow, to be fluid, to move through us freely. If we have blockages that keep Venus's love from flowing, we will also have issues with the other indications of Venus as well: wealth, creativity, life force energy. Since Venus is connected to jala, water, it truly brings us life. This is why money is an important part of having a good relationship with life. Money brings life itself.
Problems arrive when we are not in right relationship with this creative, fluid nourishment from Venus. You can look at your chart to see what obstructions might be affecting your flow. Any connections Saturn has with your Venus will be an indication their is loss, grief or sadness effecting your ability to be nourished. Rahu will bring misjudgments, mistrust, fears and illusions that make you feel unsafe or not seeing clearly. Mars may offer pains due to acting without thinking, thus there may have been issues where you have literally gotten "burned" by money. These are important discoveries because they show you where your resources are hidden!
Yes, these challenges, these pains from the past, share important insights for making more income. These painful stories from past experiences are the keys to unlocking the blockages effecting your Venus, the flow of nourishment to you and through you.
The time is now for more wealth!
As I mentioned in my passion article, the time is truly ripe to work on our Venus issues right now. With the current conjunction of Mars and Ketu conjunct exalted Venus until March 12th, we have a very ripe opportunity to face our fears about wealth, money and nourishment. This theme will continue for the coming months as Ketu continues to transit Pisces, Venus's domain.
Since many are feeling challenged by the current Venus/Mars/Ketu conjunction and feeling the obstructions of money directly at this time, it is actually a wonderful opportunity to work directly with the issues coming up for you. This is the brilliance of the transits and how to work with challenging situations that arrive while they are happening. See them as a way to crack open and receive more light. Ketu offers us awakenings if we choose to go into the pain, to heal it and transform it, rather than stay in our illusions and suffering.
I use EFT (the emotional freedom technique) as a way to directly target the intense emotional (Moon) and mental (Mercury) responses we experience as a result of our painful experiences and life challenges. These mental/emotional issues effect the physical body (Saturn) and the body will share these messages with us diligently so listen up! EFT is a very efficient way to transform our challenges into awakening and awareness (Ketu). This tool can help us target what needs to be cleared in order to get the Venus life force energy moving through us more fluidly.
The podcast below will take you through an EFT tapping sequence that will help you address and clear your money fears connected to debt. Our relationship with debt and our ability to save money represents our ability to hold onto nourishment in our lives, to absorb support and security. When we can't hold onto money there is usually an issue with some loss from the past. Notice in your jyotish chart if Saturn is connected to your Venus in any way. What losses are you still grieving? This will show up in your money and will often become a financial debt at some point. Use this podcast to address the emotions connected to your debts so you can release them and get money flowing to you.
