The Sun has moved from Aquarius, the natural 11th House of Desires and Fulfilment of Wishes, to Pisces the natural 12th house of Peace, Contentment and Loss.
Aquarius is an airy sign, causing the restlessness to chase our desires, where as Pisces is like an ocean where you can just surrender and let go.
The Aditya, or Sun God, ruling over Pisces is Lord Vishnu, the preserver and protector of the universe. So we chant the mantra ‘Aum Ghrini Vishnu Aditya’ in the morning to honor the Sun.
There are 12 Adityas which each govern a sign, and in the Bhagavad Gita Lord Krishna, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, says “Among the 12 Adityas, I am Vishnu”.
The natural 12th house is often referred to as the sign of loss, but the Aditya ruling over the 12th house is Vishnu who is the divine sustainer.
In her upcoming book about the 12 Adityas, vedic astrologer Achala Sylwia Mihajlovic beautifully explains that when you fail in the activity of maintaining what you already have in life, then that is when the 12th house could cause loss in your life.
Similarly, like water needs to constantly flow in order to sustain life on Earth and maintain its purity, our inner water element, which is manifested in the sign of Pisces as the nourishing energy of gratitude, must constantly flow to nourish all the spheres of our life.
It is only when we forget to be grateful for something in our lives that we start to neglect it and take it for granted. However, when we consciously maintain the attitude of gratitude and accept everything as a blessing or gift from God, then we naturally cherish everything more, and then we will continue to nourish and maintain it.
So, this Vedic Month (March 14th to April 13th) is all about gratitude!
The form of lord Ganesha associated with Pisces is Gajanana. So, whenever you start your work or start anything or facing some hurdles just say:
“Aum Gajananaya Namah”.
The Jyotirlinga, a devotional representation of the Lord Shiva, associated with Pisces is ‘Tryambakeshwar’. Since the Sun’s pratyadi devata, the soul-level planet deity, is Lord Shiva you can also honor the Sun God with the mantra – “Aum Namah Shivaya Namo Tryambakeshwaraya”.
So, whenever you look at the Sun from today up to Tuesday 13th April, remember that the region of the sky where the Sun is at all times, is the sign of Pisces.
