6 Days/Nights of the Light Warrior
Skanda Sashti Begins on Nov 3rd, IST

There are 6 very special days coming up in November, known as Skanda Sashti. These 6 days are especially important for those who want to improve their finance, relationship and courage. The Warrior Archetype, Muruga, is associated with the constellation called the Pleiades, in particular, the star Krittika that is one of the primary stars in this constellation.

This heavenly being, Lord Muruga, is committed to the evolution of the human race from a limited human being to an unlimited godhead. Muruga is Shiva himself with the third eye, so Muruga is the God of the 3rd eye. Skanda Sashti celebrates the birth of Muruga from the 3rd eye of Lord Shiva, it starts when the New Moon is in the Vishaka constellation (Libra and Scorpio) and goes to the 6th day of the Waxing Moon which is: November 3rd to the 8th. This is when Muruga’s Highest Power emerges on the earth plane readily available for you to absorb into your own core essence.


How Muruga Rearranges Your Stars and Planets

Skanda Sashti 2013

In your horoscope the 6th house signifies debts, disease and litigation. Lord Muruga has the ability to relieve you from problematic legal matters. His 6 lettered mantra will vanquish enemies, ensure success in legal tangles, provide relief from debts and bestow good health.

If you have a weak or an afflicted Mars connect with Archetypal Being Muruga during these 6 Nights. As the planetary overlord for Mars, He can intercede on your behalf and strengthen Mars directly which protects spousal relationships.

Muruga is also closely associated with the nakshatras (stars) Krittika, Mrigasira, Chitra, Vishakha and Dhanishta. Any person born under these stars has an innate ability to resonate with Lord Muruga’s power and participating whole-heartedly in the fire rituals can achieve remarkable life changing results.

Occasion to Gain 6 Vital Powers

Skanda Sashti is the name given to the annual astronomical positioning of the 6 Stars that brings to the Earth plane, a cluster of energies, the Power of 6. They are:-

  • Higher Wisdom and Intelligence
  • Power and Courage
  • Self-Realization
  • External and Internal Control for Right Actions and Thoughts
  • Attraction and Charisma
  • Soul Serenity and Mental Peace

Skanda Sashti is the powerful time to quickly increase your vibrations for power, new perceptions and perfect body and health. Beginning on the day after the New Moon in October-November, and continuing through to the 6th day of the Waxing Moon, you can readily connect and utilize the energy from the Pleiades.

6 Battle Stations of Muruga

There are 6 particular vortexes of Muruga’s energy that become especially activated during Skanda Sashti. They vibrate with the frequencies necessary to transform your current self into your highest self. The six places are believed to be the different battle camps of Lord Muruga (Skanda) and are known as the 6 Battle Stations of Muruga.

During Skanda Sashti, at this time with this particular star alignment, the vortices open wider to receive and transmit the higher Pleiadian energies. We can experience this new environment with the higher intelligence, the power and courage of a self-realized, peaceful warrior Skanda.

We find that interesting legends are associated with each of these temples of Archetypal Being Muruga. Specific energy points in Southern India vibrate with the frequencies of the Pleiades star cluster and higher consciousness that serve to awaken us to our full potential. Each of the 6 Battle stations emits a specific energy to connect to and attract the powers that we require during the Golden Age or the New Age of Consciousness.
