‘SATURN IN LIBRA: An Introduction and Overview of the Upcoming Depth of his Power – An Indian Astrology Lecture by OMKAR LEWIS’
as OMKAR tells it:
“in this lecture we will introduce you to the ancient myth and lore of LORD SATURN . . . the heavyweight of the astrological pantheon. . . the time of Saturn’s movement is upon us, in November 2011 he will begin to infuse our planet with a power unseen in 28 years.”
“Saturn has been cast by many as an energy to be feared and avoided – but when faced properly he offers the sincere supplicant lasting lessons in wisdom and lifelong gifts.”
OMKAR LEWIS is a Vedic Sciences consultant and student of Yoga, Meditation and Philosophy. He has spent the past 4 years studying Indian Astrology (Jyotisha) and Design (Vastu) in India and Thailand. He currently lives in Thailand – where he trains with his teacher – “in bringing out the practical wisdom of classical spirituality – for the modern person.”
OMKAR: “Indian Astrology – aka Vedic Astrology or Jyotisha – is a classical science that serves as a mirror of life so that we may harmonize our innermost experience with the greater world . . . By interpreting timeless symbols in Nature – the Planets and Stars – Vedic astrology illuminates the confusion and lack of clarity that is an inherent part of the human experience.” (!!)
PERSONALLY, I’m thinking: the planets and stars are NOT (just) timeless symbols, per se – but actual forces – exerting influence upon us and our interconnected paths in society – as our life force and individual natures ebb and flow . . . probably just semantics. the proof is in the pudding: OMKAR is here, on time – with the info. the ancient texts – have never been surpassed. astrology is just like the trees and grass and water – just cause we – modern society mowed them under – doesn’t mean – they don’t exist and furthermore: rule . . . as in nourish. and inspire.
the astrology charts are just like the caveman drawings of France – connect the dots – that already exist – a pattern someone has left for us ? – in a symbolic or graphic (wordless/visual ) code. hey language came way later . . . and is locale specific, NOT universal. visual code is universal, or tries to be . . . nancy.
SATURN has been known since pre-historic times. (I knew it !! – those cavemen ancestors of ours – there’s a reason why they supplanted the Neanderthal . . they could follow the ‘dots’ . . on cave walls, probably in fires, and in the skies. just imagine what the star-filled heavens, twinkling dots – stars and group constellations, the moving dots – planets – looked like – to them. to the Romans, SATURN was the powerful god of the Harvest, of reaping, (you reap what you sow – get it), and the God of Time. His weapon was the scythe. He ruled over agriculture – when agriculture was king – he stood for justice (you reap – what you sow) and by extension of thought: strength.
WIKIPEDIA: In ancient times it was the most distant of the 5 known planets (!!) – and thus a major character (player) in various (diverse) mythologies. in HINDU ASTROLOGY – there are 9 astrological objects, known as Navagrahas. SATURN, one of them, known as ‘Shani’ – judges everyone based on the good and bad deeds performed in life (!!)
ha, no wonder SATURN is so feared. watch out: Day of Judgement be upon us. or: YOU BETTER WATCH OUT, YOU BETTER BE GOOD. SANTA CLAUS IS .. COMING TO TOWN. and it’s black coal or gifts – get it ?
FURTHERMORE – and A TRUER MORE PROFOUND TESTAMENT to the POWER of the VEDIC STUDIES – that OMKAR LEWIS brings to town – CANNOT BE FOUND FOUND:
WIKIPEDIA: in the 5th C CE, the Indian astronomical text – Surya Siddhanta – estimated the diameter of SATURN as 73,882 miles, an error of less than 1% from the currently accepted value of 74,580 miles !!
from WIKIPEDIA: the average distance between Saturn and the Sun is over 1,400,000,000 km (or 9AU) – it takes Saturn 10,759 Earth days or about 29-1/2 years – to finish ONE revolution around the sun. we take 24 hrs.
see: SATURN/WIKIPEDIA – where they have some great NASA from outer space pix, an animated chart of Saturn’s movement around the sun – and a ton of great mythological history, too.
from WIKIPEDIA: in JEWISH MYSTICISM (and Mesopotamian mythology) the archangel CASSIEL is associated with the planet SATURN. He is also the controller of the moon (!!) and the direction: NORTH (!!)
(be that why OMKAR comes our way – from India ? just asking . . . )
CASSIEL (HEBREW – QAFSIEL) . . . is the Latin name of an archangel in post-biblical Judeo-Christian religion, particularly that of the KABBALAH.
Unlike many other angels, CASSIEL is known for simply watching the events of the cosmos unfold with little interference. he is the angel of solitude and tears, and said to preside over the deaths of kings . . .
In the magical text BERIT MENUCHAH, Cassiel is associated with KEFITZAT HADERECH – the ability to travel quickly through space. (!!) . . . . the internet – just asking ?
MAGIC SPELLS using his name are cast to create DESTRUCTION, to scatter crowds, to cause a person to wander aimlessly, or to fall from a position of power (!!). (AUNT PIGGY in TORONTO – LOOK OUT !!)
Ancient Hebrew amulets bearing his name are used to drive away one’s enemies – the words on the charm are written with the blood of a bird and then tied to the foot of a dove. the dove is then set to flight, taking one’s enemy with it. (!!)
Should the bird refuse to fly, it is a sign that one’s enemies won’t depart, either.
