  3. 3. Karma 2 There are dozens of herbs that are said to have anticancer properties, but clinical studies on their effectiveness is limited. Speak to your physician if you are thinking of adding herbs to your daily intake to treat or prevent cancer; this is especially important if you are on medication for any condition. Herbs have a powerful impact on, and interaction with, prescription medications. Saffron Saffron is probably better known as a spice than as a medicinal herb, but it has been found to have anticancer properties. A report from “Experimental Biology And Medicine” states that saffron has the ability to prevent the development of, and slow the growth of, cancerous cells and tumors. When applied topically, saffron is able to help prevent the development of skin cancers. Prostate Cancer Treatment Groundbreaking Protocol in Atlanta Survival Data on Over 14,000 Oldenlandia:- Oldenlandia diffusa is an herb that is native to Asia, and has been used for thousands of years as a snake bite remedy. It is now regarded as an anticancer herb. One of the best scientific studies on oldenlandia’s affect on cancer is published in the 2004 issue of the “Journal of Herbal Pharmacotherapy”. This study reports that oldenlandia was tested against eight different cancer cell types, and it showed that it was able to stop the growth of these cancer cells. Not only did it stop the growth of the cancer, it also promoted the death of the cancer cells. Researchers conclude that oldenlandia may be a powerful anticancer herb. Artemisia Artemisia is also known as “sweet wormwood” and it has been used for years to treat a number of ailments, from fever, to headaches, to malaria. Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center in New York reports that it also is used as an anticancer treatment. It contains a compound called artemisinin, which has been found to stop the spread of thyroid cancer cells, and promote cell death in lung cancer. Scutellaria Scutellaria is an herb that is native to China and Korea. A study published in the February 2007 issue of “Phytotherapy Research” reports that scutellaria takes an active role against cancer no matter which stage the cancer is in. It prevents the development of cancer cells, and prevents new cancer cells from forming or developing off an existing tumor. This study states that scutellaria is particularly effective against gynecological cancers. Curcumin Curcumin is from the turmeric herb and is another herb that is better known as a spice than as an anticancer treatment. However, a study in the JanuaryFebruary issue of “Anticancer Research” shows that like scutellaria, curcumin is effective in treating the different stages of cancer. It is found to stop the development of tumors, as well as tumor growth, and the spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body. The study also reports that curcumin was given to human subjects in a dose of up to 10g per day with no evidence of toxic effects.

  8. 8. Vastu Sastra For your Happy Life - Made Simple -Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar Vastu Shastra is an inspiring explanation of a person’s surrounding and its concurrent influence on his or her life. The factual meaning of Vastu is ‘house’ or ‘dwelling place’. The principles of Vastu are established to create a harmony between the natural elements of Earth, Sky, Fire, Water and Air in the atmosphere. The knowledge and judgment of Vastu mitigates the depressing functioning of our environment thus increasing the beneficial consequences on our life and living. It not only takes into consideration the physical or corporeal success but also calmness & tranquility of mind. Be it a home or office, factory or a commercial block, Vastu has been known to reward the follower with benefits and protection from ill effects of life and unpredictable effects of nature. We live in, and are surrounded by, various types of energy fields which operate freely in open space. When we place a structure in our establishment, the equilibrium is affected. Vastu helps in so designing the structure that it ensures a harmonious flow of energy in the building and restoration of that equilibrium. Though Vastu is similar to Feng Shui in concept, it differs in the details and directions. Vastu And Directions As indicated by Vastu, a building must be located in such a way that it receives the maximum benefit from the solar and cosmic energies. Its structural orientation attains a vital part if constructed as per the positive specifications. The various directions are: North, South, East, West, NorthEast, NorthWest, SouthEast and SouthWest.The North East corner is stated to receive the cosmic energy, which is a combination of energy from different planets apart from sun, in abundance. And from there it moves in the opposite direction i.e. to the Southwest. Vastu Tips Vastu guidelines are adopted for the contemporary Western lifestyle by offering a reliable system to help determine one’s specific needs and preferences. It is an integrated science based on energy emanating from various sources. Since energy pervades nature and our life depends on it, energy rules every form of life on earth. This energy can be either positive or negative. Incorrect Vastu can create negative energy. Vastu corrections can be done by neutralizing this negative energy by implementing or following strong positive energy radiating devices. Vastu Tips For Health And Well being: A proper relationship between Human being and environment is an essential law of Scientific Vastu. Vastu can fruitfully be applied to correct placement of man in such a manner so as to get the maximum benefits of the energy emanated by natural and manmade environment. Here are some vital tips 1. Being in a room that is constantly lit by such light can cause headaches, eyestrain, loss of energy and nausea. 2.

  17. 17. Karma 16 Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar This is the universal fact that nobody on this universe can stop the rain from falling. However one can carry an umbrella during the rainy days. However it is solely the discretion of a person whether he wishes to use the umbrella to save him/her from the rainy water or not. Similarly according to the depth of his knowledge an astrologer can analyze a birth chart and may predict the good and bad phases in the life of a person. It is said that one should work hard during favourable periods and should observe certain precautions during the unfavourable periods. In order to minimize the sufferings of a person some remedial measures are also prescribed. As a matter of fact these remedial measures act as an umbrella in the rain. Thus it is believed that the sufferings of a person may be minimized if he performs the relevant remedial measures on routine basis. Practically this has been observed that a person who is not going to get any sort of relief on account of his sufferings generally does not perform the remedial measures. As a matter of fact the preventive remedial measures provide relief to a person from his sufferings on account of affliction/s in his/her birth chart. We always emphasise to strengthen the benefic planets in a birth chart. On the contrary simple remedial measures are being prescribed to minimize the evil influence of the malefic planets. I would like to mention that a person suffers in his/her life on account of natal planetary weaknesses in his/her birth chart. For example a person born with weak Mercury is likely to suffer from indecisiveness, uncertainties or forgetfulness. If Mercury is a benefic planet in his birth chart in that case one should strengthen it. Wearing of Kavach (a shield made of silver and engraved with mystical numbers of benefic planets) as well as the Gemstones of the relevant planets may strengthen the natal weak planets. In some cases remedial measures such as performance of meditation and spiritual practices, color therapy as well as performing particular pujas and yagnas are also suggested. In short, after analysing the birth chart an astrologer advises the person concerned to strengthen the natal weak planets and perform the preventive remedial measures to minimize the influences of the evil planets. As a matter of fact people born with Virgo, Cancer, Pisces, Taurus and Capricorn ascendants usually experience lot of sufferings in life compared to others. The reason being the number of malefic planets is more in their birth charts. Therefore such people need to perform remedial measures patiently and sincerely in order to enjoy favourable results. In Indian astrology there are 12 Zodiac Signs and each Zodiac Sign has Functional Benefic and Malefic Planets. Rahu and Ketu are malefic planets for all Zodiac Signs. Least number of malefic planets are for Gemini Ascendant. Most number of malefic planets are for Taurus, Virgo and Pisces ascendant. Whenever in the nativity benefic planets are weak due to

  24. 24. Karma 23 In Vedic astrology, the full Moon is considered to be much more favorable than the new Moon. Certain full Moons are highlighted in the Indian calendar as they are linked to special holidays or festivals. Today marks the very auspicious full Moon of Guru Purnima. Many of the Vedic months are named according to the nakshatra (or lunar constellation) in which the full Moon falls within that month. This is the month of Ashadha. Today, the full Moon falls in the nakshatra of Purva Ashadha in the sign of Sagittarius in Vedic astrology. Guru Purnima marks the day which devoted to honoring the Gurus, or sacred teachers, in our lives. The prefix Gu means darkness and the suffix ru means light. Thus, a Guru is one who leads us from the darkness of ignorance to the light of selfawareness. It is widely thought that the Gods incarnate in human form as Gurus to instruct humans and lead them to the path of knowledge. Guru Purnima is also known as Vyas Purmina. Veda Vyasa was the great Indian rishi or sage who is said to have compiled the four Vedas, the ancient books of Vedic knowledge. Vyasa also wrote the 18 volumes of the revered spiritual texts the Puranas the Mahabharata, and the Bhagavad Gita. Additionally, Veda Vyasa instructed Dattatreya, who thought to be the Guru of Gurus. As the story goes, Veda Vyasa’s disciples were so full of gratitude for all that they had received from him that they asked him how they could repay him for all the profound knowledge that he had imparted. Vyasa told his disciples to choose one day of the year in which to pay homage to him. This way, their prayers and offerings could reach their Guru. The disciples chose the full Moon of the month of Ashadha to honor their Guru, as it was the fullest and most luminous Moon of the year. They named this day Guru Purnima. On Guru Purnima, students honor their teachers by spending time with their living teachers. Disciples also remember their teachers (both past and present), chant their name, and offer gifts (known as dakshina) to thank their teachers for the grace that has been bestowed in their lives.

  25. 25. Karma 24 - Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar The word yoga means union. When we typically use the word, we mean yoga asanas, or poses. Asana is one of the limbs of Ashtanga (ashta = eight and anga = limbs) yoga, as described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The word sutra means thread, that which ties everything together. We know that everything in the universe is interconnected. The ancient seers, or rishis, of India cognized the Vedas, the world’s oldest recorded texts: the Yajur Veda, Sama Veda, Rg Veda and Atharva Veda. Then there are the Upavedas, which expound on the information found in the Vedas, and the vedangasthe limbs of the Vedas; jyotish (“Vedic” astrology) is a vedanga. The ocean of information from the Vedic sciences is vast but closely woven together. Just as we cannot separate our physical and mental bodies from each other, we cannot separate the interconnected aspects of our lives. Our health is linked to our home lives. Both are part of the karmic pattern indicated in our astrological charts. Our health is also linked to how we take our seat (or asana) in the world. Do we hold a steady pose or do we waver? Can we get back into position if we lose our balance? Can we truly surrender in child’s pose, or do we hold back a part of ourselves? Ayurveda is the sister science or healing modality that is most closely used with yoga in the East. It is widely accepted in India that an adept ayurvedic physician is knowledgeable of Sanskrit (in which the ancient texts are written), yoga, jyotish, hastha samudrika shastra (palmistry) and vastu shastra (the ancient art of harmonious placement of objects, or Vedic architecture). Feng shui is the Chinese outgrowth of vastu shastra. A skilled ayurvedic practitioner uses pulse diagnosis to assess an individual’s health and then recommends dietary changes, prescribes a mixture of herbs specific to the individual’s condition, suggests healing yoga poses for the person’s constitution and counsels the individual based on what his or her astrological chart and palm indicate. An astrological chart is a road map of a person’s karma. The word karma means action. Every actionpast, present or futureleaves an imprint and creates an impact. For example, we can take action by going to a yoga studio and engaging in regular practices with a qualified instructor, and that can lead to good health and increased vitality. In contrast, we can push ourselves into holding asanas beyond our capacity to the point that we exhaust ourselves; such action may adversely impact our health. Karma is not something that we are the passive recipient of; it is a twoway street. There are indications of health in our chart. The ascendant, or first house, gives a description of the person’s overall vitality and personality. There are also houses in one’s chart that are correlated to health. The chart describes one’s regimens, routines, exercise patterns, chronic health ailments and acute health issues. In jyotish, we experience planetary cycles from birth to death. Each of us experiences the same set of cycles, but which ones and when depend on where our moon is placed natally. There are also harmonic, or divisional, charts that relate to health and vitality. All of these in combination with an ayurvedic diagnosis and one’s health history can be the guideposts to a healthy life. There are static indications of health in a person’s life shown by the natal placement of the planets in a chart. Then we also have dynamic indications, which are an interplay of the planetary cycles that a person experiences and the transit of the planets through the 12 houses of the zodiac. (Houses of the zodiac are key areas of a person’s life, such as personality, money, love, partnerships, career and other categories.) For instance, if we are undergoing a Saturn period, then we want to see where Saturn is transiting (Saturn’s current position) as well as where it was placed natally (when the person was born). In Vedic astrology, the house that Saturn occupies natally can represent an area of challenge for the individual, as well as where the greatest lessons are to be learned. If Saturn is transiting one’s ascendant (first house), the person may undergo radical changes in his or her appearance or exercise patterns and may move to a new location. Then, after taking all this into consideration, recommendations can be made accordingly for diet, herbs, yoga asanas as well as astrological remedies. Remedies may take the form of Sanskrit mantras. Mantras have healing effects on the organs as well as on the subtle bodies. Because each sound in Sanskrit has a particular vibration, it is crucial that the mantra be pronounced correctly. Incorrectly pronounced syllables or words will produce another outcome. Many sounds in Sanskrit are not part of the English dialect, so it is best to learn from a native speaker whenever possible. Even the word mantra is often mispronounced. It is man (as in Monday or mundane) and tra (as in truck). Other astrological remedies may include wearing gemstones at specifically recommended times, performing charitable acts, fasting on certain days, wearing auspicious colors on a particular day and reading a particular scriptural text. Remedies are often prescribed for periods when there may be challenging indications found in a chart. There are also times when an astrological chart may indicate a good time to commence certain healthpromoting activities. Both the astrological chart and the lines and shape on the palm indicate dietary preferences. The ayurvedic practitioner knows rules of food combining, the importance of eating for one’s constitution as well as according to the season and how to cook a variety of meals using healing spices. We look not only at what our bodies ingest, but also at the environment in which we live. Incorrect placements of doorways, windows, furniture and objects in and around our homes can have disharmonious effects. This can be conflict in our relationships, diminished prosperity or ill health. This is another feature that the counselor needs to take into consideration. The links are all connected like pieces of a puzzle. Seeing where all the parts fit into the whole helps us keep perspective in our lives. It helps us maintain that state of union that we all seek. This is yoga
  26. 26. Mars After spending an unprecedented eight months in the fiery sign of Leo in Vedic astrology, sizzling Mars has moved into earthy Virgo today. Mars joins a retrograde Saturn in this sign. This makes for a potent combination. Mars and Saturn are the two great “natural malefics” in Vedic astrology, or those planets which deliver experiences which we render as undesirable. When they come together, the astrological pot is stirred. Mars is the celestial warrior, braced for war at any time. It is the planet of action, courage, aggression, and conflict. Saturn is the slowest moving planet, very cautious, responsible, and strategic. It can bring delays, obstacles, and burdens to teach us our greatest life lessons. This pair of opposites create a pushpull dynamic. Mars is hot; Saturn is cold. Mars loves risk; Saturn is riskaverse. It’s like driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake simultaneously. This combination promotes a dynamic akin to the reluctant warrior. It makes people break out of a slump and choose a new modality. Mars and Saturn promote industriousness and hard work. It can lead to discipline in action by pushing us beyond our limitations and our restricted thinking. Those in a Mars or Saturn planetary cycle (dasha or bhukti) in Vedic astrology will be most impacted by this transit. In Vedic astrology, the pairing occurs in Virgo, the sixth sign of the natural zodiac. Mars is less comfortable in Virgo, since it is not as friendly with landlord Mercury as is Saturn. Virgo is very diligent, methodical, and plans out activities after analyzing the details and making precise calculations. Virgo also is a house related to health, so this time can be utilized to create healthpromoting routines. Saturn The sixth house is also connoted with employees or subordinates,sotherecanbeconflictbetweensupervisors and those reporting to them. Also be cautious about getting involved in legal conflicts and double check all angles before entering binding agreements. Additionally, the nakshatras or constellations in which the Mars and Saturn fall come into play here. Mars has to be careful of getting involved with the wrong person romantically. They can also accumulate more than they need. People may continually seek you out to help them in some way. Saturn will be very serious, requiring order in all situations. It will be very concerned with proper administration of matters. Even if it gets involved with artistic endeavors, Saturn will not be engaging in these activities for fun, but for precision. The great benefic planet, Jupiter, is also aspecting (influencing) Virgo at this time, so this friction is somewhat softened. The potential for good wisdom to come on board exists. Fortunately, Saturn and Mars don’t intersect this time in Virgo, as Saturn is returning to Libra on August 2. 2012
  27. 27. Karma 26 - Param Pujya , His Holiness Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar Astrologers worldwide are discussing what this Venus transit may bring. While there are a wide range of opinions regarding its implications, all are in agreement that it’s a very powerful event. Let’s take a historical glance back to what’s happened relatively close to the other Venus transits over the face of the Sun. We obviously cannot provide scientific evidence to prove what events were caused by the (then upcoming or past) Venus transit. Yet, it may be interesting to see where linkages may lie and ponder the significance of such events. December 6, 1631– Venus transit December 16 Mount Vesuvius in Italy erupted, destroying 6 villages & killing 4,000 people. While the exact date is unknown, construction on the Taj Mahal began in 1631 and took twentytwo years to complete. The Taj Mahal was designed by Shah Jahan as the final resting place for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Venus is the planet of love and romance and it signifies the spouse or romantic partner. November 24, 1639– Venus transit: November 5 – the first post office in the colonies is established in Massachusetts. Venus is known to be a very “social” planet. December 3 – the first annulment by court decree was granted. Venus represents marriage, yet its capacity can be diminished when it is so close to the Sun. June 6, 1761– Venus transit: June 8 – British fleet occupied the French island of Belle Isle for two years, during the Seven Years War. July 17 – the Bridgewater Canal is opened is in northwest England, which allowed for the transportation of coal from local mines to Manchester. Venus represents modes of transportation.

  28. 28. The Monkey and the Crocodile Once upon a time, a clever monkey lived in a tree that bore juicy, red rose apples. He was very happy. One fine day, a crocodile swam up to that tree and told the monkey that he had traveled a long distance and was in search of food as he was very hungry. The kind monkey offered him a few rose apples. The crocodile enjoyed them very much and asked the monkey whether he could come again for some more fruit. The generous monkey happily agreed. The crocodile returned the next day. And the next. And the next one after that. Soon the two became very good friends. They discussed their lives, their friends and family, like all friends do. The crocodile told the monkey that he had a wife and that they lived on the other side of the river. So the kind monkey offered him some extra rose apples to take home to his wife. The crocodile’s wife loved the rose apples and made her husband promise to get her some every day. Meanwhile, the friendship between the monkey and the crocodile deepened as they spent more and more time together. The crocodile’s wife started getting jealous. She wanted to put an end to this friendship. So she pretended that she could not believe that her husband could be friends with a monkey. Her husband tried to convince her that he and the monkey shared a true friendship. The crocodile’s wife thought to herself that if the monkey lived on a diet of rose monkeys, his flesh would be very sweet. So she asked the crocodile to invite the monkey to their house. The crocodile was not happy about this. He tried to make the excuse that it would be difficult to get the monkey across the river. But his wife was determined to eat the monkey’s flesh. So she thought of a plan. One day, she pretended to be very ill and told the crocodile that the doctor said that she would only recover if she ate a monkey’s heart. If her husband wanted to save her life, he must bring her his friend’s heart. The crocodile was aghast. He was in a dilemma. On the one hand, he loved his friend. On the other, he could not possibly let his wife die. The crocodile’s wife threatened him saying that if he did not get her the monkey’s heart, she would surely die. So the crocodile went to the rose apple tree and invited the monkey to come home to meet his wife. He told the monkey that he could ride across the river on the crocodile’s back. The monkey happily agreed. As they reached the middle of the river, the crocodile began to sink. The frightened monkey asked him why he was doing that. The crocodile explained that he would have to kill the monkey to save his wife’s life. The clever monkey told him that he would gladly give up his heart to save the life of the crocodile’s wife, but he had left his heart behind in the rose apple tree. He asked the crocodile to make haste and turn back so that the monkey could go get his heart from the apple tree. The silly crocodile quickly swam back to the rose apple tree. The monkey scampered up the tree to safety. He told the crocodile to tell his wicked wife that she had married the biggest fool in the world. The Stork and the Crab Once upon a time, there was a stork that caught the fish in a particular tank. The stork always had a full meal. As the years went by, the stork grew older and weaker. His ability to catch fish diminished. At times he would even starve. He knew he had to do something to survive. One day he stood by the side of the tank with a very forlorn look on his face. The frogs, fish and crabs wondered why he was not trying to catch any food. A big crab asked him what the matter was. The stork answered that he was sad because all the fish in the tank were going to die and he would have to starve. He said that he had heard that people were going to fill the tank with mud and grow crops over it. The fish were very worried and asked the stork to help them. The stork offered to take all of them to a bigger tank some distance away. But he said that he needed to rest between trips because of his age. He would only be able to carry a few fish at a time. The stork took a beakful of fish on his first trip. He flew to a big rock and had a good meal. He rested awhile, and when he was hungry again, he took a second trip. In this manner, he took a trip each time that he was hungry. The big crab in the tank also wanted to save himself and he requested the stork to take him too. The stork thought it was a good idea to try a new dish. He agreed to take the crab on his next trip. After the stork flew up with him, the crab looked down to see what his new surrounding would be like. All he could see was dry land. He questioned the stork about this. The stork laughed wickedly and pointed to the rock below where the crab saw a heap of fish bones. The crab realized that he was to be the stork’s next meal. So the crab dug his claws into the stork’s neck and June 12 – the first case of a meteorite striking a private home is reported inNew Zealand. It created a great deal of damage, but no injuries. June 17 – the first same sex marriage in Massachusetts. June 21 – the Governor of Maine issues an executive order requiring that businesses that contract with the state may not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation . June 23 – a Federal judge allows a class action lawsuit claiming sexual discrimination by an unprecedented 1.6 million women against Walmart. June 24 – the U.S. abandons its attempts to provide its soldiers immunity from prosecution for war crimes by the International Criminal Court. June 24 – capital punishment is declared unconstitutional in New York. June 28 – the 17th NATO Summit starts in Istanbul. June 28 Sovereign power is handed to the interim government of Iraq, ending the United States’ rule of Iraq. June 28 Estonia, Lithuania and Slovenia join the European Exchange Rate mechanism. June 30, 2004 the Spanish Congress provisionally approved legislation to extend the right of marriage to samesex couples. It was legalized in 2005. July 1 – in the U.K., the Gender Recognition Act 2004, which allows transsexual people to change their legal gender is given royal approval. It went into effect in 2005. February 12 to March 11, 2004 – San Francisco issued marriage licenses to approximately 4,000 samesex couples. Couples traveled from all over the U.S. as well other countries to get married. Interestingly, the June, 2004 Venus transit also took place in Taurus in Vedic Astrology. It happened in the constellation of Mrigashrisha, which is considered to be the most auspicious asterism for marriage. Mrigashirsha also relates to investigating the state of marital union. We are also aware that President Barack Obama recently announced his support of samesex unions and their having the same rights as heterosexual unions. On June 5 (the day of the Venus transit), Congress is also set to vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act, which “strengthens the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which made it illegal for employers to pay unequal wages to men and women who perform substantially equal work.” Venus Transit 2012: A Recap of Notable Events Much of the clamor over the recent Venus Transit on June 5th and 6th has died down. Before we let Venus dance on its merry way into history, I thought it would be interesting to see what newsworthy happened on the days of the Venus 2012 transit and what correlated events have transpired since them. In my previous blog, I provided a chronology of what events had occurred in proximity with past Venus transits. The significant events are colored by the sign of the zodiac in which the transit occurred as well as the constellation or nakshatra in Vedic Astrology in which it happens. The Venus 2012 transit took place in the sign of Taurus in Vedic Astrology. Taurus is the second sign in the natural zodiac. It rules spoken communication, the face, food, family, movable possessions, and money from investments or secondary sources of income. The Venus 2012 transit happened in the nakshatra of Rohini or Aldeberan, known as “the eye of the bull”. InVedicastrology,Venusisthepersonificationofthearchetypical feminine characteristics. She is the significator of the romantic partner, love, beauty, fine attire, and luxury. Who better exemplifies the extreme opulent and feminine qualities that Venus represents than the Queen herself? On June 5, the Queen gave a rare tv appearance thanking everyone who participated in her diamond jubilee celebrations. Every planet has an associated gemstone, and for Venus, the gem is diamonds. On June 3, Miss Rhode Island won the Miss USA crown after declaring her support for transgender beauty queens. On June 6, Miss Pennsylvania resigned her crown, saying that the Miss USA competition was fixed. Donald Trump is now suing her for defamation of his pageants. (Mythologically, Rohini was the favorite of the Moon’s 27 wives and the others were jealous of her). Congress voted on the Paycheck Fairness Act on June 5. It
  29. 29. Karma 28 would have ensured that women were paid the same wages as men for similar work. This failed to pass. (Venus was very close to the Sun – which represents authority figures or government. Although Venus passed over the face of the Sun, it was just a dot. The Sun is still much brighter). On June 4, a Vatican office denounced a book written by a nun. The Vatican said that the book, “Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics,” by Sister Margaret Farley, was “not consistent with authentic Catholic theology,” and declared that the book should not be used by Roman Catholics. The Leadership Conference of Women Religious, representing 80% of U.S. Catholic nuns, met with Vatican officials on June 5 to discuss a critique that led to a Vatican decision to overhaul their organization. The Vatican had deemed the group to be too feminist. A Kennedale, Texas, woman began camping on a church rooftop on June 5 as a means to raise awareness for hunger. She intends to remain there until her community donates 50,000 pounds of food to local pantries. (Fixed sign Taurus rules the 2nd house of food). Jury selection began in the child molestation trial of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky on June 5. It was also revealed that he wrote “love letters” to some of his victims. (Mythologically, in Rohini, there is a debate over morals and ethics regarding relationships.) There was also news on the political front: Financial leaders from the G7 meeting put pressure on Europe on June 5 to be more aggressive in handling their growing debt crisis. (Taurus is the house of finances). On June 5, a U.S. envoy challenged Iranian officials to disprove suspicions that they have been covertly working on a nuclear arms program. The envoy asked Iran to open up a military site to a probe by U.N. inspectors. A White House spokesperson announced on June 5 that the No. 2 man in al Qaeda was dead. He was killed by a CIA drone strike in Pakistan. (Since Aldebaran is such a bright star, there’s a myth that the desert people looked at it for victory in war). It was reported in early June that since many of the drug lords in Mexico have been killed, several new cartel bosses are their surviving female family members. As with the previous Venus transit in 2004 in Taurus, the issue of gay marriage arose. In Vedic astrology, the 27 nakshatras encapsulate a story of creation and weave a thread from one nakshatra to the next. While Rohini is a passionate nakshatra, there is no mention of marriage mythologically. Rohini can represent unfulfilled desire. On June 5, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against rehearing arguments over a California ballot measure banning gay marriage, after previously upholding a district court’s rejection of the law. The case most likely moves to the U.S. Supreme Court next. Washington state voters received sufficient signatures to put an antigay marriage referendum back on the November 2012 ballot. The Governor had signed a law in February legalizing gay marriage. A St. Paul, MN pastor made headlines on CNN on June 5. His support of gay rights has cost his more than 2/3 of his congregation. If he doesn’t raise $200,000 by the end of the month, the church will have to close. On June 3, there was a protest outside a church in Indiana where a young boy had previously sung an antigay song during a congregation. (Taurus is the house of speech). How this transit will shape the face of future events will continue to unfold. Individually, the Venus Transit 2012 seems to have brought up deepseated desires and aspirations as well as the impulse to create a future as bright as the star of Rohini.
