This month the Sun moves into Capricorn (from sidereal point of view from North America) on January 14, and he will stay there until February 13.
Each of the 12 Zodiac signs is 30 degrees, and the Sun moves approximately 1 degree a day through the Zodiac. The Sun changes Zodiac signs in the middle of each month, and as he does this, he lights up a fresh topic for all of us to focus on.
In the Vedic tradition, the Sun is said to begin a six month journey “northward” from his entrance into Capricorn in mid-January until his entrance into Cancer in mid-July. This six month period is said to be excellent for launching projects, publishing, releasing new products and initiating activities you want to bear fruit for a long time to come.
The Sun can give a fresh boost to your career or work life during his visit to Capricorn. Capricorn is the natural 10th house of career, work and profession. The Sun will illuminate this environment for 30 days, and if you pay attention, the Sun can provide you fresh inspiration to ponder:
What excites you to work on right now?
What would you like to get accomplished in your career before mid-July?
Are you happy in your career, or do you need to make a shift to activate your own inner talents and gifts?
What are you consciously creating?
This is a great period for renewal in the area of your work life.
Ancient Vedic sages described the symbol for Capricorn as the head of a deer and the body of a crocodile.
The Mayans also have stories about Starry Deer Crocodile, and some say the East-West configuration of the Milky Way appears to take on this form from certain viewpoints on Earth.
The archetype of the deer is a more gentle energy and reminds us to be gentle with ourselves. The deer is graceful and can change direction quickly. The antlers of a deer can grow back. Regeneration and renewal in career is possible during the Sun’s visit to Capricorn.
The archetype of the crocodile is a very efficient, well-timed energy. The crocodile has great patience waiting submerged in water before moving quickly to strike at prey at just the right moment. Exerting power effectively in career is supported during the Sun’s transit through Capricorn.
Eclipta Alba is a secret herb used by many Saints and Siddha’s to find ecstatic levels of awareness. Eclipta Alba has been rumored to remove karma by simply changing the thoughts of the herb-taker!
This is a very simple technique you can do from anywhere in the world to strengthen your union with the Sun’s life-affirming energy and awaken more light of intelligence within yourself and your career.
Here is the technique:
In the morning after showering, go outside for a few moments. Face East and offer some clean water in the palm of your right hand towards the Sun and recite the Sun Gayathri Mantra (or create your own prayer of gratitude to the Sun in your own language):
and then let the water fall on the ground. This simple yet effective offering can be repeated 3 times daily in the morning and will help create a closer relationship with the Sun’s life energies and awaken higher intelligence.We invite you to try it out and let us know your results!
