Now that the period, which has turned out to be quite an excruciating one for a lot of Scorpios or Vrischikans is nearing its grand finale, it is time for Vrischikans to ask themselves how useful or useless the unavoidable seven and a half year period in their life has been.
This post is about Scorpios and therefore let us begin by broadly classifying Scorpios into two groups. One group consists of people who have been affected by Sadé Sati and the other of people, who have not been affected by it. The group of people affected by Sadé Sati can again be broadly classified into two groups of people, namely, the ones who have been seriously affected in terms of losing their position, name, fame, loved ones, health, or wealth; and others who were affected but nothing very severe happened that could change their life in some way or the other.
The transit of Saturn from Sagittarius into Capricorn is due to take place on 24.01.2020. Two important questions that Vrischikans or Scorpios could ask themselves at this stage with only a few more weeks left before Saturn transits out of the second house from their natal moon into the third house thereby ending the Sadé Sati period, are,
- Am I THANKFUL for the last eight years?
- Am I upset, angry, dejected, sad, ruined and bitter about what happened to me in the last seven to eight years?
If your answer to the first question is an honest ‘Yes’, you can be absolutely confident that there is going to be a great positive change in your life in the next weeks to come. However, should your answer to the first question be either a ‘No’ or ‘I am not sure,’ and your answer to the second question be an emphatic ‘Yes’, please do not expect any miraculous changes to take place in your life after the end of your Sadé Sati. This is simply because when something that you expect does not happen, you will feel disappointed and sad and by not expecting anything, you can save yourself from the deeper sadness and misery that will be caused by your own attitude and is lurking around you waiting to take over you.
A powerful affirmative answer of yours to the above Sadé Sati question indicates that you have worked on yourself, have read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita or have at least heard my audiobook, have introspected and retrospected, have realised that you or rather your Gunas or attitude were directly responsible for whatever challenges you faced in your life, have evolved intellectually and spiritually enough to comprehend that your life is not controlled by some angry planet or God but it is your own Karma created by your own thoughts, words and deeds, that does it.
In my post ‘The Chequered Flag for Vrischikans‘ dated 14.09.2019, I had listed out some points which Vrischikans might want to take a look at and consider following. I would say that with about seven more weeks to go, there is still time to get into an autocorrection mode and straighten things up, which, when left uncorrected, could impede the process of your blossoming after the long, dull and dreary phase in your life.
Most of you must be aware that I started this blog/site as my ‘thinking aloud platform’ and have been using it to share with others whatever tiny bit of knowledge and experience that I have gathered so far in my life. Many people came here, learned what they wanted to learn, changed their lives for the better and either continued to be a part of the family or moved on with their lives. I wish everyone well and pray for the wellbeing of all.
I can say from experience that nothing apart from the Supreme Truth is real. People make promises and they do not keep them. Many of them swear to be with you until the end but find better things in life and leave. They use you and when their requirements are fulfilled, they cast you away and exit from your life. The easiest way to avoid feeling sad is to imagine yourself as the little baby you were when you arrived into this world. You had nothing apart from your physical body. You could tell yourself that considering the fact you started your life with nothing, whatever you have, makes you richer than what you were when you were born.
Those who have studied the Srimad Bhagavad Gita can easily understand that attachment leads to sadness and thinking about the results of one’s actions, paves one’s way towards situations that are filled with pain.
Bhagavan Krishna said:
SBG 9:27 Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer in sacrifice, whatever you give, whatever you practise as austerity, O Arjuna, do it for Me and as an offering unto Me.
By doing so, you will be freed from the bonds of action that result in good and in bad. By being free and with your mind guided by the principle of the Yoga of renunciation, you will attain Me.
When there are expectations, there is bound to be pain, whereas when one develops ‘Prasadabuddhi‘ and accepts everything as Divine Gifts, the possibility of entering a situation which causes pain can be totally circumvented.
- I am Divine energy now residing in an impermanent and biodegradable container called body. Read the Ishavasya Upanishad.
- I don’t expect anything so I will never be disappointed.
- Nothing or no one ever belonged to me so I have no fear of losing anything and all that I believe I possess, are temporary gifts to me that I may enjoy until the end of the current leg of my Karmic journey.
- I am continuously evolving and therefore every experience, both good and bad, is only making me wiser.
- I do not care about whatever happens in my life because I am well aware that life is uncertain and that it is normal for anything to happen at any time. However, I will make sure that I do not deliberately collect any new Karma, which I cannot escape paying back.
- The most sensible thing I can do is to be a modest seeker and ask questions.
SBG 4:34 Acquire knowledge through reverence to teachers who have known the Truth, serve them and ask them questions until all of them are answered. The wise who know the Truth will teach it to you.
- Let me be a humble witness and be thankful for all the experience that I gain through every day of my stay on the planet.
I wish you all Vrischikans well and hope that you prepare yourselves with all modesty, gratitude, kindness and love, and get ready to usher in the post-Sadé Sati part of your life, which, when lived well, is bound to bless you with excellent health, unimaginable joy, peace, prosperity and fulfilment.
Jai Shri Krishna
