Ancient mystics in India could observe how our life is influenced by an astronomical phenomenon as they had identified a specific Moon that has got within it the secret of Non-Declining Wealth. That specific Moon is the 3rd waxing Moon when the Sun is exalted, called Akshaya Tritiya. This 24 hour window of time comes only once in a year, when the Earth is filled with a powerful energy to support material abundance and royalty consciousness. If you ideate and meditate on the concept of Non-Declining Wealth, it will sink deeper into your consciousness and will create a permanent link with the Goddess of Wealth Lakshmi and the Banker in Heaven Kubera.
Holding an idea in your mind is Everything. The idea is you buy gold and keep it, because gold is the real money. That’s why people in India wait for Akshaya Tritiya to buy gold. On this day, you can develop the concept that, my money should never run out, run down and also keep improving.
Akshaya Tritiya: Grand Gaja Pooja Festival
This Akshaya Tritiya will be celebrated in a true grand fashion, just like the Kings and Queens in Ancient times. There will be Gajas (elephants), ashwas (horses) and cows. They are being honored. These incredible animals symbolize kingliness, authority, magnanimity, energy, compassion and abundance.
Gaja Pooja: Jupiter is the ruling planet of this magnificent animal. The elephant is a symbol of respect, honor, magnanimity and power. First the elephant is bathed, then dressed and decorated, offered light, incense, flowers and food while Vedic priests voice the appropriate mantras and chants. This invokes the blessings of Lord Ganesha, the elephant headed God who removes all obstacles.
Ashwa Pooja: The horse is first bathed, decorated and dressed and then offerings are made. Horse gram is then offered to the ashwa. The horse is a symbol for the Sun that represents Royalty, Wealth & Strength.
Cow Pooja: The cow and her calf are first bathed, dressed and decorated and then only the pooja is offered. The cow is the symbol of love and ever giving and symbolic of the Planet Venus.
Akshaya Tritiya starts on May 12th at 10:20 am IST and ends on May 13th at 12:47 pm IST. This year Akshaya Tritiya is made stronger with the additional influence of 3 benefics: Jupiter, Mercury and Venus. The 3 benefics, are together in Taurus, the sign of real tangible wealth, which is ruled by Venus. The combination of Mercury and Venus will make it easy for you to hold your mind on wealth and beauty. Plus, they are joined by the expansive planet Jupiter. This astrological alignment shows that Archetypal Being Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi are available to bless you with all the abundance and wealth you desire.
Break Your Karma on Ganesha’s 4th Moon
4th Moons are associated with Lord Ganesha who is known for removing Obstacles both Seen and Unseen. Smashing a coconut is an ancient sacrificial ritual. Nothing changes without sacrifice and smashing a coconut on a 4th Moon is equivalent to sacrificing all that you have. The coconut has the power to absorb negative vibrations; like evil eye, curses, negativity and bad karma. When the coconut is smashed the obstacles are destroyed.
Did You Know?
Astrologically, the Moon governs our Mind and Emotions. We experience the influence of the Moon every moment of the day on earth. All water bodies like; oceans, lakes, ponds, and even the water in our body is governed by Moon. Imagine the mind as a lake; when it is clear and still, you can see deeply, your intuitive powers are at their strongest and you can use this mind-state to resolve issues with utmost clarity.
In Vedic Astrology, the 27 constellations (also known as Nakshatras), are the medium through which we understand the influence of stars on our life. The term “Nakshatra,” translates into Star Map. The Nakshatra aligned with our natal Moon at birth gives insight into our personality. According to ancient Indian seers, Nakshatras is where our Karmas are stored and it is the Nakshatras in turn that dispense our Karmas at an appointed time.
