Free-Floating Anxiety

Many clients have confided in me lately about feeling a vague sense of dread. I’ve studied a lot of charts, and the truth is almost everyone has the potential somewhere and at sometime to be overwhelmed by free-floating anxiety. This is not a bad thing, disturbing as it might feel. It’s a call to pay Read More…

From Equinox to Equinox: March 2024

By Marianne Jacuzzi, M.A., E-RYT 500, Jyotish Visharada, Jyotish Kovid, Jyotish Brihaspati    Springtime inspires hope. Everywhere Nature is renewing herself, awakening from the torpor of winter. In Ireland, where I lived for over 30 years, darkness begins to lift in late January, when the first few flowers appear, tiny white blossoms called “snowdrops”. Crocuses Read More…

Surya Namaskar for Christmas

If you’re new to the wonders of Jyotish, the Sun provides a simple but powerful practice where all can begin. Right now—with the Winter Solstice upon us—is the perfect time to begin. On the darkest day of the year, Sun reaches the most southernly point in his annual journey (from a Northern Hemisphere perspective). But Read More…

Eclipses: As above, so below

When God Becomes Nine

Steeped in myth and metaphor, Indian cosmology arises out of the profoundest insights of spiritual masters from an ancient civilisation we understand only vaguely. These were not ordinary minds. The rishis and sages of pre-Vedic India lived in unbroken harmony with the cycles of nature, their awareness diffusive, intimately attuned to the mathematical precision at Read More…

Caught in the Serpent of Time

Expect the unexpected, because as Bob Dylan sang back in the 1960’s, ‘the times they are-a- changin’. Only what’s happening now is perhaps an even more radical historical shift. Once this pandemic recedes, the world will emerge reconfigured—similar to what happened after each of the two world wars of the twentieth century, and similar to Read More…

A Covid Christmas

Waiting belongs to the essence of Christmas. Advent calendars, letters to Santa, puddings tucked away in cupboards, gifts wrapped and hidden under Christmas trees—all our many rituals partake of a similar theme. Long ago when the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she was to be the Mother of God—and she surrendered with perfect trust Read More…
