Significance

Eight forces or energies are recognized and they are known as Sri (wealth), Bhu (earth), Sarasvati (learning), Priti (love), Kirti (fame), Santi (peace), Tushti (pleasure) and Pushti (strength). Each one of these forces is called a Lakshmi and all the eight forces together are called the Ashta Lakshmis, or “the eight Lakshmis of the Vedic Tradition.”

Vishnu is also called Ashta Lakshmi Padhi which is equivalent to saying that he is the asylum for the eight Lakshmis or forces. In fact, Vishnu, representing the preservative aspect of the universe, radiates these forces from him. These forces are personified and worshipped as Lakshmis, since abstract force is beyond the comprehension of the ordinary people. As health, wealth and prosperity depend upon the rhythmic play of these forces, the worship of Lakshmi is said to be able to obtain these three. Only a woman can sympathize with women. Lakshmi is a woman. So she will more readily sympathize with women. Hence this festival is observed largely by women, invoking the blessings of Lakshmi on them, their husbands and their children.

The Legend

As the legend goes, this is a pooja that was pronounced by none other than Lord Parameswara to be performed by his consort Parvathi to seek prosperity and happiness for the family. Thus it came to be emulated by married women who sought boons (varam) for the health, wealth and knowledge for the entire family. In some cases, women prayed for being blessed with children. The prescribed day for the pooja is the Friday of the month of Sravan in the fortnight known as Sukla paksha, preceding the full moon day.

The Story

On one occasion, Parvati and Parameswara were engaged in a game of chess. Parvati was winning game after game, but Parameswara is said to have claimed the victory at each games, wantonly, to her intense chagrin. So Parvati wanted to have an umpire and Chitranemi, a creation of Parameswara, was chosen. As an underling of Parameswara, Chitranemi sided with Parameswara most unjustly. This provoked Parvati’s anger and she cursed Chitranemi that he should become a leper for discharging his duty in most unfair manner.

When Chitranemi begged Parvati’s forgiveness and Parameswara added his entreaties to it, Paravati is said to have relented and modified the curse by adding that he would be cured of his leprosy by observing the Vara Lakshmi Vrata. By doing this, Chitranemi was, it is said, rid of the loathsome disease.

The history of the origin of the Vara Lakshmi Vrata is rather interesting. Lakshmi is said to have visited a pious woman named Sarmadi who lived in the city of Kuntinapura in Magadha (Bihar). In one of her dreams, Sarmadi expressed her satisfaction at Lakshmi’s devotion to her children. When she woke up from her sleep, she took a bath and worshipped Lakshmi to ensure her blessings. When the other ladies heard of her dream and her worship of Lakshmi, they too began to worship Lakshmi, and the custom is then said to have spread everywhere throughout the land in course of time.

History

In the kingdom of Magadha of yore, there lived a Brahmin woman called Charumathi in a town named Kundina. She lived in this prosperous town with her husband. She devotedly served her husband and her parents-in-law. Impressed by her piety, Goddess Mahalakshmi appeared in her dream and asked her to worship Vara-Lakshmi (literally, boon granting – goddess of wealth) and to seek to fulfill her wishes. Varalakshmi is yet another form of Lord Vishnu’s consort, Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. Thus was prescribed the Friday of Sravana month preceding the full moon day for the worship.

When Charumathi explained her dream to her family, she found them encouraging her to perform the pooja. Many other women of the town also joined her in performing the pooja in a traditional way and offered many sweet dishes to the Goddess Varalakshmi. They prayed with deep devotion:

“Padmaasane Padmakare sarva lokaika poojithe
Narayana priyadevi supreethaa bhava sarvada”

The well-dressed women made offerings of delicious feast with utmost devotion. As they went around the deity in prayer, dazzling jewelry is said to have appeared as ornaments on the bodies of these worshippers, and their houses filled with riches. They rewarded the priest who assisted them in performing the pooja and they all partook in the feast. The women expressed their gratitude to Charumathi who shared her dream and helped them become prosperous. This pooja came to be practiced year after year by women. Done with devotion, it is said that boons would be granted and thus many wishes would be realized.

This pooja can be done with no restriction to caste or creed. To this day, many in modern times observe this tradition.

Be Sure to Read This Story, Especially On August 23rd

Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated on the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the god of wisdom and prosperity, on the fourth day of the moon’s bright fortnight, or the period from the new moon in the lunar month of Bhadrapada. The celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi continues for five, seven, or ten days. Some even stretch it to twenty-one days, but ten days is typical. In the tradition of the right hand path, the first day is the most important. In the left hand path tradition, the final day is most important.

It is believed that for the fulfillment of one’s desires, his blessing is absolutely necessary. According to the mythology, he is the son of Shiva and Parvati, brother of Kartikeya – the general of the gods, Lakshmi – the goddess of wealth and Saraswati – the goddess of learning. There are numerous stories in Vedic mythology associated with the birth of this elephant-headed god, whose vehicle is the Mooshak or rat and who loves Modaks (droplet shaped Indian sweet).

Legend has it that Parvati created Ganesha out of the sandalwood dough that she used for her bath and breathed life into him. Letting Ganesha stand guard at the door, she went to have her bath. When her husband, Shiva, returned, the child, who had never seen him before, stopped him. Shiva severed the head of the child and entered his house. Parvati, learning that her son was dead, was distraught and asked Shiva to revive him. Shiva cut off the head of an elephant and fixed it on the body of Ganesha.

Another tale tells of how one day the Gods decided to choose their leader and a race was to be held between the brothers Kartikeya and Ganesh. Whoever completed three rounds of the earth first would be made the Ganaadhipati or the leader. Kartikeya, seated on a peacock as his vehicle, started off for the test. Ganesh was given a rat, which moved swiftly. Ganesh realized that the test was not easy, but he would not disobey his father. He reverently paid obeisance to his parents and went around them three times and thus completed the test before Kartikeya. He said, “My parents pervade the whole universe, and going around them is more than going around the earth.” Everybody was pleasantly surprised to hear Ganesha’s logic and intelligence, and hence he came to be known as the Ganaadhipati or leader, now referred to as Ganpati.

There is also a story behind the symbolic snake, rat and the singular tusk. During one of his birthdays, Ganesha’s mother, Parvati, cooked for him twenty-one types of delicious food and a lot of sweet porridge. Ganesha ate so much that even his big belly could not contain it. Mounting his little mouse, he embarked on his nightly rounds. His mouse suddenly stumbled upon seeing a huge snake. To adjust His belly, Ganesha put the snake on as a belt around his stomach. All of a sudden, he heard laughter emanating from the sky.

He looked up and saw the moon mocking him. Ganesha, infuriated, broke off one of his tusks and hurled it at the moon. Parvati, seeing this, immediately cursed the moon so that whoever looks at it on Ganesh Chaturthi will be accused of a wrong doing. The symbolism of the mouse and snake and Ganesha’s big belly and its relationship to the moon on his birthday is highly philosophical. The whole cosmos is known to be the belly of Ganesha. Parvati is the primordial energy. The seven realms above, seven realms below, and seven oceans are inside the cosmic belly of Ganesha, held together by the cosmic energy (kundalini) symbolized by a huge snake which Ganesha ties around himself. The mouse is nothing but our ego. Ganesha, using the mouse as a vehicle, exemplifies the need to control our ego. One who has controlled the ego has Ganesha consciousness or God-consciousness.

Graha (Planetary) Changes for August
Each person will experience the transits according to his chart and Dasa (time) periods. If there is no connection in your chart with the grahas that are being described, it is not likely you will notice so much with regard to that transit. If, however, there is a connection, then you might notice some effect of the transit. The quality is of your experience will depend on who is affecting whom in your chart, and whether your chart is strong or weak in that area.

It is good to know where the Grahas are transiting throughout the month, but it does take an expert to determine how that transit will affect a particular chart. If you know your rising sign, for instance, and where Surya (sun) and or Chandra (moon) are in your chart, then you can read the Gochara below, and see what you notice. It is, however, very foolish to assume that because Sani (Saturn) or Mangala (Mars) is transiting somewhere in your chart that it is going to be awful, or that because Sukra (Venus) or Guru (Jupiter) are transiting somewhere else that it will be good. And it is also very foolhardy to worry about what is going to happen when, for instance, Budha (Mercury) goes retrograde, or some other “fearful” transit occurs. It sometimes happens that when the Malefics (Grahas that are known to bring mischief) are transiting sensitive places in our charts, difficult things can happen in one’s life, but it is not necessarily so. So, the following analysis should be used with circumspection, and it is best to assume that if we are doing our best to support nature (i.e. not doing things that we know to be wrong), the Laws of Nature will, in turn, support us.

suryaSuryaSurya (Sun) – At the beginning of this month, this most powerful of all the Grahas (Planets) is right in the middle of the Rashi (sign) Karka (Cancer). From this position, it receives drishti (an aspect) from Guru, and is Yuti, or conjoined with Ketu. Then, on the 4th of August, Chandra (the moon) starts transiting exactly opposite Surya. Because there was an intense eclipse involving Chandra, and Rahu and Ketu, and because Chandra is emotion, and Surya is in Karka, the Moon’s sign, emotions are up, especially because on the 5th there is another eclipse. This is such a mild eclipse that from no place on earth is it visible.

The issue here is not so much whether there is an actual eclipse, but rather what happening with Rahu and Ketu does to our luminaries when they are all transiting together. First, because when the moon is full, emotions are running their highest, and second, because Surya’s reaction to transiting Chandra’s sign (Karka – Cancer), is also emotional, and because neither Graha likes to be conjoined with Rahu and Ketu, people might find that they are feeling anxious and emotionally off balance, and also egos may seem to be more tender. (Especially if any of those four grahas are active in a particular chart at this time, as the Dasa (time period) lord, lagna lord or a graha placed in Karka or Makara who is the Dasa or Lagna lord.) Because we all have Surya and Chandra in our charts, and because these are the most powerful and influential grahas in our charts, along with the Lagna (rising sign) and its lord, everyone will be effected to some degree.

chandraChandraChandra (Moon) – When Chandra leaves Makara (Capricorn) where Rahu and Guru are, and the Surya opposition, it moves into Kumbha, where Sani (Saturn) and Budha (Mercury) will be looking at it from Simha. Sani, which represents grief, can bring sadness and obstacles, however, Budha (who represents play and youth, as well as communication and intellect) can lighten up this combination, and the yuti (conjunction) with a malefic (graha that can bring difficult lessons, in this case Sani) can often bring humor and perspective to the situation. On the 20th again Chandra is dark, thus transiting over Surya, who is now in Simha with Sani only, as Budha has moved by this time into Kanya. From when Chandra leaves Kumbha, late on the 6th, until it returns back to Surya, things will be a little more normal for the emotions.

MangalaMangala (Mars) – When August starts, Mangala is in Vrishabha, at 20 degrees, with a drishti (aspect) from Sani and giving a drishti back to Sani, and also to Budha. As Mangala is energy, strength and expansiveness, and Sani tends to be obstructive, restrained, and contracting, this can tend to set up push/pull situations within people, as well as between people, governments, or even in the workplace.
Mangala moves on to Mithuna on the 13th. From this new transit, Mangala is with Sukra (Venus) for almost a week, before Sukra moves on. The combination of Mangala with Sukra is a passion combination, as Mangala brings energy, competition, anger, strong emotions, etc. to any situation. Now it is to Sukra’s desires, sexuality and partnership, that Mangala brings very strong reactions, both good and bad. Because it is all happening in Mithuna, which is ruled by Budha, who is neutral (i.e. not really very sexual) it reduces this effect somewhat. However, there is still the chance it could put stress on relationships.

From Mithuna, Mangala aspects Rahu and Guru in Makara; this causes more difficulties with Rahu (attachments, etc.) than it does with Guru, who is friends with Mangala. However, as Mangala can add energy to Rahu, this is a time for most people to pay attention to their actions.

budhaBudhaBudha (Mercury) – Budha with Sani in Simha is a rather limited blessing. Budha is stronger than Sani here, so it will come across as strongly as it can ever come across when it is with anther graha (like its namesake Mercury, its qualities are not stable, but take on qualities of wherever it is and who ever it is with). Thus, because Sani has the potential to be unscrupulous, Budha being speech, picks up this quality, and others unsavory qualities, can cause some lack of truth to be spoken. This could happen possibly in the arena of politics, as the whole thing happens in Simha Rashi, whose lord is Surya, government, and leaders.

As well, because Budha tends to be quick, Sani will slow it down, and because Budha tends to be a discriminator, Sani will put a cast on that discrimination – perhaps making the intellectual take the side of the poor and downtrodden. Budha is also play, and Sani is very serious, so this would have a dampening effect on any attempt at levity – again, this could happen in the area of government, politics, etc.

Mangala’s aspect to Budha until the 13th can also add to Budha’s tendency to misbehave, further hindering proper speech and clear discrimination. When the intellect is harmed, justifications can then be made for poor decisions, and this has definitely been the situation for at least the past three weeks. It helps that Budha is moving very fast for these three weeks – “Can’t catch me!” cried the gingerbread man.

But Budha’s speed puts him again under Mangala’s glance when, on the 19th, Budha moves into his own sign of Kanya. Now however, because Mangala gives drishti from Budha’s own sign, Mangala has less power, and confers more energy than anything else. It will be interesting to see whether, after the 19th of August, it seems as though politicians are taken to pontificating more than usual, or with more energy than usual.

guruGuruGuru (Jupiter) – On the last day of July, Guru retrogrades (appears to move backwards) back into its sign of debilitation, Makara (Capricorn), thus becoming part of the eclipse, and loosing much of its ability to add judgment and wisdom to the world population. After the 16th of August, Surya (ego) is no longer involved in this situation, but Mangala’s drishti starting on the 13th can tend to add anger and jealousy to the combination. There is a problem for much of what Guru potentially offers the world in the way of guidance and judgment. And again, how much this affects people will depend on just how Guru is involved in a particular chart.

Additionally, there is a tradition in Vedic astrology that says that when Guru is yuti Rahu, there is the potential for a person with this combination in their charts to betray their teacher or particular body of knowledge. This is true because good judgment, wisdom, and happiness are eclipsed when attachments and unbridled desires creep in. As Rahu represents attachments, and is considered to cast confusion wherever it is, it becomes clear why this combination is not a good one. Add to that fact that Guru is not well placed in Makara Rashi, and the combination becomes a precarious one for all the good things that Guru represents.

Thus from now to December, it will be good for everyone to be aware of the decisions being made, and directions that they take with regard to spiritual and righteous matters. This is not the time to decide to change religions, or give up one’s spiritual practice. And one has to be especially careful not to justify actions that one knows to be wrong, because you can be fairly sure that the decision is not going to based in common sense, or even the truth, but more has been made from the perspective of fear, greed, or some other less than properly thought-out reason or overshadowing desire.

SukraSukra (Venus) – Sukra is transiting Mithuna (Gemini) by herself until the 21st of August when she moves in to Karka with Ketu. In Mithuna she is out of reach of any Drishtis, negative or positive. She is friends with Budha ,the lord of Mithuna, and so there is not much stress involved here. Sukra is desires and partnerships, beauty and art, and Mithuna is a very intellectual sort of place. Thus, one may find oneself analyzing one’s preferences or relationships, but it will be more of an exercise in attention than any notion to justify, or change one’s opinions — that is, until Mangala moves in to Mithuna on the 13th. Then things could get more challenging in the area of relationships. Some may even find that they could challenge what they thought were their absolute favorites with regard to aesthetics, finding that what they used to think was beautiful, no longer catches the eye, and being in Mithuna makes this an intellectual decision.

Once in Karka, on the 21st, because of the Ketu yuti (conjunction), there will be potentially a renewed edge to relationships. As well, those engaged in the arts may find that there are some obstacles to being productive which may be emotional or just because one feels lazy.

saniSaniSani (Saturn) – Sani affects many grahas over this month, so we have already covered most of Sani in the rest of this article. The thing to remember about Sani in Simha (Leo) is that because Sani is the servant, and Simha’s lord is Surya (Sun, the king), he will not ever feel really comfortable here, and this becomes more of an issue after the 16th when Surya moves into Simha, joining Sani. This placement and yuti will give the already grievous Sani an edge, and bring out the more stubborn and discontented qualities. When Chandra, on the 19th, also moves in to Simha, the emotional area of life could feel quite a pinch.

Rahu and KetuRahu and Ketu (the north and south nodes of Chandra) – Rahu and Ketu still remain in Karka and Makara throughout the month of August. Their placement here has brought quite a lot of drama because of the full solar eclipse on July 22. They continue to wreck vengeance on the luminaries through the 4th of August when Chandra finally moves out of the second lunar eclipse position within a month. Rahu and Ketu could be said to be the darlings of this time (Kala Yuga) of greed, fear, and lack of spiritual focus, and at the moment, they are in many ways all-powerful. However, after the 16th of August, they lose some of their power. They become powerful particularly when they are affecting the luminaries, Surya and Chandra, because of their apparent ability to take the light of those Grahas. Once Surya has moved on, that threat is removed and much of their power is over.

August 2009 Vedic Astrology Gochara (Transits)
Here are the astrological (Jyotish) transits by Lagna (rising sign) and Chandra (moon sign) (not sun sign) for August. Glossary of Terms.

Each person will experience the transits according to his chart and Dasa (time) periods. If there is no connection in your chart with the grahas that are being described, it is not likely you will notice so much with regard to that transit. If, however, there is a connection, then you might notice some effect of the transit. The quality is of your experience will depend on who is affecting whom in your chart, and whether your chart is strong or weak in that area.

It is good to know where the Grahas are transiting throughout the month, but it does take an expert to determine how that transit will affect a particular chart. If you know your rising sign, for instance, and where Surya (sun) and or Chandra (moon) are in your chart, then you can read the Gochara, and see what you notice. It is, however, very foolish to assume that because Sani (Saturn) or Mangala (Mars) is transiting somewhere in your chart that it is going to be awful, or that because Sukra (Venus) or Guru (Jupiter) are transiting somewhere else that it will be good.

So, the following analysis should be used with circumspection, and it is best to assume that if we are doing our best to support nature (i.e. not doing things that we know to be wrong), the Laws of Nature will, in turn, support us.

August 1 – September 1 2009:

Aries:Until the lunar eclipse is over on August 5, for those with Lagna or Chandra in this rashi, emotions could be pretty unstable, so it is important to watch out for sudden flare ups of unbridled sentiment, jealousies, anxieties, and loss of confidence. After the eclipse, the emotions are less in the forefront, but one has to be careful in the area of profession, and actions in general.

Taurus: Until the 13th of August when Mangala moves, there is the tendency to feel a sort of push/pull effect that could prevent those with Chandra or Lagna (rising sign) here from functioning efficiently. After that, it may seem that things are moving much more slowly than many would like.

Gemini: Until the 21st of August, there may be a feeling for these folks that beauty and comforts, etc., are illusive and out of reach in spite of the fact that the desire for these things might be strong. After the 19th, however, there should be a great improvement in how one feels. However, there may be an increase in anger and frustration.

Cancer: This is the Rashi where the solar eclipse occurred, and the tiny lunar eclipse occurs on the 5th of August. All this activity in this particular Rashi is particularly not good for health in areas of the heart and lungs. This is the time for these folks to take care of their health, and to actually continue to do so right through to the end of the month.

Leo: Things are still slow for people with Chandra or Lagna in Simha. However, there is an element of play and a greater ability to communicate until the 19th. After the 16th, there could be some obstacles with partnerships, though much of the anger and frustration that could be present would be gone.

Virgo: People with Kanya (Virgo) Chandra or Lagna may find that there are troubles with children and other relatives. There could be loss with regard to income and career. Toward the end of the month, there could be issues of anger or competition in the workplace.

Libra:Slow gains at the beginning of the month for Tula lagna, though career may not be altogether smooth at this time. After the 21st, one might be able to apply oneself to having quite a bit of success.

Scorpio:Career may take much effort, but communicating clearly could bring some positive transformations. After the 16th, there could be some health issues. Be gentle with children, listening to them carefully so that your agendas for them don’t overwhelm them.

Sagittarius:For this month, it is important not to become too attached to things or money, as it might bring some strain. Also, it is a good time to be gentle with one’s partner, children, and even extended family. They are all more important than you might be willing to admit at this time.

Capricorn: There could be some fortune of a very different nature coming this month. It is important to not be attached to what it is or how it comes so you don’t miss it. Children are an issue, because they could be extra-irritating, at least until the 16th.

Aquarius: There could be some good communication and closeness with partners this month, if you pay attention, and don’t go off on your own. Be careful with finances, as there could be some losses up until December.

Pisces: Children are an issue here, though you should have good energy, and the courage to face what needs to be taken care of at least until the 16th. After that, there might be good opportunities to find solutions to health problems that might exist.
