In this show I talk about how we all need to defragment and program ourselves in a fresh way. I explore the Collective and Personal implications of the Transits in the sky and I also explore what it means for a planet to be Combust the sun (or conjunct it). I really hope you enjoy!

In this show I explore all of the planets in the sky in a way I have yet attempted. I talk about both the Personal and Collective implications for all of the transits that are currently happening. That is the first part of the show. Divided–of course–by music, in the 2nd half of the show we explore the chart of musician Nick Drake and take a peek into the transits of his death. Poor boy under a Northen sky….oOo
This is by far my longest show (just so you know before entering) I have ever done, but in the eyes of Saturn, my most comprehensive. I’m glad i could make Saturn smile in the making of it.
Hope you enjoy,

With Venus now retrograde and the Summer Eclipse season upon us, it is paramount we all understand what the stars are asking of us. A Dragon hole is opening. Time is speeding up. Magic is everywhere. Change is immanent. We are entering the arena–the galactic space we have all been waiting for. How are you feeling? Do you know why? Do you know what you are going to do? Listen to the show and maybe I can help bring context to what is happening not just to you, but the world at large.

Join me, for the first part–of the two part series–of the Venus cycle, where we will unlock the astrological meanings of “Morning Star Venus” and “Evening Star Venus.” I will also cover Retrogradation and other attributes of her drop dead gorgous, 5 point star cycle. I also talk more about Transits today (Dec 5, New MoOn Sag), in light of many comments I have received over the past months from listeners desiring to hear more on the cosmic weather.. Listen if you desire to be informed about the current Sky, the Cosmic eye. I hope you enjoy.

I was humbled last night.
After reading a 25 page interview with the great K.N Rao, my perspective on life collapsed to be reborn. There were words he said, with soOOoo much potency and meaning, I couldnt help but surrender to. On his training, he mentions, “I was never allowed to keep the horoscope in front of me. I had to see it once and have a clear visual memory of it. Further when the analysis proceeded, I was trained to dynamically visualize the various planets, their aspects, positions etc. In fact as the training progressed, the verbal analysis would unfold itself as a visual dance-drama inside of me. Further I was required to do many of the intricate calculations mentally. I can unequivocally say that this method of training, more than any skill per se, has helped me immensely in practicing astrology.” The role he plays as an Astrologer, has altered the course of my entire life-especially my relationship to my “astrology career.”
……To podcast, or not to podcast, this is the question.
Here is a blurb:
Question: Being a well-known and highly reputed astrologer, does it not put an added burden on you for being scrutinized and repeatedly tested on the accuracy of your predictions? Does protecting your image and stature sometimes stand in the way of you practicing astrology in a free and unfettered fashion?
KNR: One of the reasons why an astrologer often feels burdened is because of lack of practical understanding of astrology among the clients. That is a real problem. For example, there is no acceptance or understanding of (1) variability brought out by inherent uncontrollable uncertainties such as inaccurate birth times or (2) acceptable error limits. Everybody wants perfect answersevery single time. That is never going to happen no matter how good the astrologer is! Does the world abandon the science of aeronautics and space exploration if the space shuttle crashes due to errors by the world’s best scientists at NASA? The answer is no – they learn from their mistakes and improve. But astrology is thought to be something “out of the world” which is simply not true. Everybody is subject to laws of nature including the astrologer, and each of us works under the gamut of Maya. Why then forget the Will of God? As the great Tulsidas has said, “Haani-Laabh, Jeevan-Maran, Yash-Apyash, Vidhi Haath” (Profit and loss, life and death, fame and infamy are in His hands).
My experience is that, often times, it is the unnoticed and unquoted individual predictions which are truly inspired. They give great internal satisfaction to an astrologer. Sometimes such predictions get great publicity through informal channels and grapevine. After hearing about these predictions people come to the astrologer with great expectations. These expectations (or for that matter any expectations) create a preconditioned mind to “hear” a very highly favorable or certain type of predictions that would alter the course of people’s lives. For instance, I predicted in one case that the boy would become an engineer, go to a foreign country, marry a foreigner but would remain afflicted with an incurable ailment. Fifteen years later when events took place exactly as I had predicted other people came running to me to hear a similar prediction. If you do not give them a similar prediction they feel disappointed and sore. Why should I put a strain on myself and try to live up to their expectations? From my personal experience I have learnt that being true and honest to myself is the only way to live one’s life harmoniously. This brings you peace and a palpable proximity to God. Isn’t that the true purpose of why Jyotish was revealed to us in the first place?
Question: On a final note, would you like to give any advice to aspiring astrologers?
KNR: My advice to aspiring astrologers is to do their astrology quietly. They should not seek publicity or promote themselves, and let their good predictions earn them a good name. It is how so many, including me, started. It is only in 1983, after more than forty years of practicing astrology, that I was dragged into the limelight, much against my wishes. And if an astrologer can practice as a service without charging any money – it is the best. Or leave it to the client to donate what they wish. Never demand or put a price on your service. I know I am old-fashioned in this matter – but for a good reason. (Note – I asked K.N. Rao about charging money in the West for astrology services. He said, “It is all right in USA. Do as you have been doing.” – Vaughn Paul Manley 7/5/05).
Astrology is a revelatory science and it is revealed, not by aggression but by faith and surrender to the divine. Always remember the four “Mahavakyas” of astrology – Have Faith; Be Diligent and Practice Patience; Humbly learn from your mistakes, and Live a Life of Service. Then the divine lotus of astrology will open within you.

I do hope you take the time to read this one. It is soOOooo important, for astrologers, or anyone into the healing arts to hear the advice of this wizened old Tree.
