Top-Rated Charities Providing Aid For Ukraine

Note:  In the SAMVA* horoscope for Ukraine, Mars and Venus, ruling property, domestic peace, the economy and the work force – are transiting the twelfth house of losses – and are closely conjunct natal Rahu, representing extreme calamities.  Unfortunately, transit Rahu and Ketu – representing an eclipse – also closely afflict six of the twelve houses in the country’s chart through March.

Similarly, in the SAMVA* horoscope for Russia, Mars and Venus, ruling the economy, work force, property and domestic peace, are transiting the sixth house of debts and disputes through March. Additionally, Jupiter, ruling the sixth house of debts, disputes, and enemies, is transiting the unfavorable eighth house through mid-April.  This likely indicates that Russia is also vulnerable.

Transits for this Week:

Sun transits Aquarius from 21:25 to 28:25°. This connects presidents, leaders, physicians, administrators, and governments with the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, working-class persons, manufacturing, agriculture, and the oil and gas industries.  Sun is closely conjunct Jupiter until March 12th. Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA, Russia and Ukraine!) are under severe stress.

Moon is waxing and transits Aries, Taurus and Gemini. The Moon, in Taurus, is exalted, March 8th – March 10th.  This is typically favorable, but be vigilant between 5 p.m., March 7th, until 12 p.m., March 8th – while Moon transits Rahu!

Mars transits its exaltation sign, Capricorn, from 05:47 to 11:01°. Mars moves away from the ninth aspect of Rahu. This may represent a positive change for the military, police, dentists, surgeons, athletes, builders, executives, architects, fire fighters and property matters. Mars, however, remains closely conjunct Venus until March 20th. Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including India) should be careful and patient.

Mercury transits out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, March 6th — and also moves quickly away from the conjunction of Saturn. This may also represent an improvement for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries, (including USA and Russia!)

Mercury in Aquarius

Jupiter transits Aquarius, from 20:57 to 22:39°. Jupiter remains closely conjunct Sun until March 12th. This is not favorable for Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including Ukraine).

Venus transits Capricorn, from 05:46 to 12:06°. Venus moves away from the ninth aspect of Rahu.  This may be an improvement for women, medicine, luxuries, entertainment, transportation and the fine, healing and performing arts.  Venus, however, remains closely conjunct Mars until March 20th. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including India) should be careful and patient.

Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 25:13 to 25:59°. Saturn is now weak in degrees (until Sept. 27th).  This is not ideal for the masses, along with manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas, and minerals industries. Fortunately, there are no afflictions to Saturn, which may be helpful.

Rahu and Ketu transit their exaltation signs, Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 00:44 to 00:34°. People, companies, and countries with a rising sign between 28 to 2 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces) also in these degrees, should be careful and patient. (Including USA and Ukraine!)

Excerpt of the Week:

From: Theory and Research on Conflict Resolution through the Maharishi Effect.

“Only a technology that operates from the unified field of nature’s intelligence could be powerful enough and unifying enough to bring harmony to all the diversity of cultures and political systems in the world. Just as quantum field theory has provided a deeper level of analysis of physical phenomena which complements the value of the classical level of analysis, so too a deeper level of analysis of social phenomena is possible which complements the behavioral levels of analysis of contemporary social science theory. Studies of the Maharishi Effect provide empirical demonstration of the efficacy of such an approach. Methodologically, the studies on the Maharishi Effect are the first experimental research in history to actually attempted to resolve real conflicts on national and international scales, and they have used state-of-the-art statistical methodologies. There is no other research program in the conflict resolution literature that is more directly relevant and more rigorously validated for creating world peace than Maharishi’s. The studies have been replicated on many different populations across a variety of measures in virtually all of the world’s major conflicts. The studies have included all instances of the phenomenon, such as all 1% cities (Borland & Landrith, 1977; Dillbeck et al., 1981), the entire period of the MIU Super-Radiance group since its inception in 1979 in studies of violent death and inflation/unemployment (e.g., Dillbeck, 1990; Cavanaugh, 1987), and all cases in which the size of a Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi group was large enough to have a predicted impact, as in the study of the Lebanon war (e.g., Davies & Alexander, 1989) or on the world (Orme-Johnson et al., 1989). With all of this evidence and profound theory, if this technology of peace is not being implemented it can only be for the political reasons of special interest groups, and does not serve the purpose of the people of the world who deeply desire peace and prosperity for themselves and for the generations to come.

Maharishi (1986, pp. 21-24) outlines three simple steps to permanent world peace. First step: Create coherence in world consciousness through establishing a permanent group of 10,000 experts in Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology. Second step: Create coherence in national consciousness in every country by establishing a coherence creating group numbering the square root of one percent of that nation’s population. Third step: Create coherence in city consciousness by establishing a coherence creating group numbering the square root of one percent of the citizens of the cities of every country.”   –David Orme-Johnson, PhD
