2016 Vedic Philosophical Prediction

By Maharani Rutan©

think2

On Christmas Eve Day I decided to write my predictions for 2016. I could not help but to ponder the sadness of 2015. The great legions that passed away that that made differences in the lives of so many. From the co-founder of North Face (Douglas Tompkins) who kept us warm in the cold weather, to the designer of the Bat-mobile which everyone wanted (George Barris). Not to mention Former Senator Fred Thompson, perhaps better known as the District Attorney in Law and Order. We also saw the passing of Jackie Collins who kept most women’s romance alive in their hearts through her wonderful novels, Bobbie Kristina Brown – the only legacy of Whitney Houston who could have shimmered the world, Omar Sharif a heartthrob of the 60’s, Nicholas Winton who saved 650 Jewish children during the holocaust, and Dick Van Patten who played the father in the show 8 is enough.

mus

Some of the most heartfelt deaths of this past year included B.B King (musician), Percy Slege (Musician), adored Leonard Nimoy (aka Mr. Spock in Star Trek), Zsa Zsa Gabor(actress), then there were those that the heavens set the stage. From Afghanistan, Africa, France, India, Australia, U.K, Japan and much more. Some of these deaths could have been prevented while others were caused by natural disasters. But whatever the case, and no matter what the circumstances, we cried many tears, we mourned, we feared, but most of all, we live daily to protect our family, friends, and country.
uncer

We will soon begin 2016 with many uncertainties, including where the future of one of the most powerful nations falls as it is placed into the hands of its political process. Thus we have plenty to think about and Mercury retrograde from 2015 going into 2016 will make sure that we think about how our communication and telecommunication is reliant upon the messages being delivered. At the same time Jupiter will also retrograde in Virgo.

jan1

Last fall Jupiter entered Virgo which brought or rather, is still bringing, opportunities to Virgos; but Virgo should not have wasted time. They should have been on the move: investing, looking, planning, organizing, networking, but most of all building as time is of an essence (read about it here). However, January 5, 2016, this magnificent planet of luck and fortune will be moving retrograde. There is an old saying, everything should be in moderation otherwise we may become ill. Meaning that if you love sugar and eat too much of it then there is a probability that you may become a diabetic and you may never have candy again. Therefore, when Jupiter begins to go retrograde in Virgo, all earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo) will be going through introspection in regards to understanding how to improve themselves so that they are able to handle more critical issues in their lives when Jupiter goes direct. The worst thing one can do around this time is to get scared because life slows down as you know it. Therefore, Capricorn and Virgo will have a double slow down whammy in January and February of 2016. However, it may last a little longer for Virgos as Jupiter stays retrograde until May 2016.

jan2

On January 03, 2016 Mars will enter Scorpio which could be good or bad as it means that everything in life as we see it may be all black or white with nothing in between. But it is about challenges, making profound changes, keeping things a secret, and testing our limits. Within two weeks or so Venus will enter Capricorn, and therefore, while their luck of Career and life as they knew it slows down, perhaps their luck in love and all things such as art and beauty will be at their best. Thus Capricorn may still be a little dissimulated and Scorpios may go through some through some transformations.

As Valentine’s Day gets a little closer and Mercury retrograde starts to move direct, we will feel some relief. However, Venus also moves from worrisome Capricorn and into friendly Aquarius. The residue of Mercury still remains however, so watch out for old lovers returning. I wish I could say that instantly the phase will be over but the light at the end of the tunnel will not be bright until the end of February when we finally get some relief, not for long though. Brace yourself! And hold on tight as the spring brings us some bumps and bruises along the way, as it did spring of 2015.

As tough as it was for us in 2015, the eclipses were not as bad as they will be in 2016. In 2015 we had 4 eclipse, in 2016 we will have 5. A solar and lunar eclipse in the spring of 2016 and Lunar-Solar-Lunar eclipses in the fall of 2016. In spring 2015, our first solar eclipse magnified openings with the Pisces/Aries eclipse on March 20 (Read about it here), followed by the Libra/Aries eclipse on April 4 (read about it here).

fmscorp715

No, I have not forgotten, as always it appears that super moons seem to follow the eclipse, or vice versa; we will have six super moons in 2016, just like 2015. Instead of all of the new moons being in the beginning of the year, they will be during the eclipses or little after.

mar2

Our first new super moon will cover the entire sun disk and form a total solar eclipse. This eclipse will focus on early born Pisces’ who will now open their eyes with the first total solar eclipse on March 08, 2016, and Libras who will now end their last eclipse for a while with the Libra/Aries eclipse on March 23, 2016. Fortunately for Libras, they will not be affected by eclipses now for quite some time, but that will not stop them from being affected by other aspects. These eclipses will magnify changes for both Pisces and Libra’s for 6 months, setting the stage for their own transformation and I would not be surprised if all those that have planets in in mutable or cardinal signs are affected by these eclipses. Even though the eclipses are transforming Pisces, Venus will grace them by entering their sign, at least until April 05, 2015, while Mars likes things to be fair in Sagittarius and wants the truth. Additionally, by now Saturn is going retrograde and perhaps Sagittarius’ can at least breathe for a little while, at least until August when Saturn goes direct again.

Finally, the merry-go-round begins to slow down and we are able to get off. However, while we are huffing and puffing while holding on to the railing, the universe looks down and says, “oh you need some rest? No problem! I will give you rest.” He puts his whistle in his mouth and blows and says, loudly ‘HEY! MERCURY! THESE HUMANS ARE TIRED!” Mercury smiles, and rubs his hands and says, “oh goody!” Even if our life is about to slow down this does not mean the cosmos slows down. Our second super new moon will be on April 07. One week later, on April 12-14, Mercury retrograde will take the second earth sign hostage. First, he took Capricorn, next is Taurus which means that not only are Taurus’ going to be affected, but all earth signs. I know Capricorn, its hell, I know. Oh, Virgo too. And let’s not forget Gemini, Pisces, and Sagittarius. Oh, why not by default, all those associated too. While our spring quickly begins to move to summer our heads are now between our legs and we are in a fetal position.may1As earth signs bask in the heat in May, the third super new moon will enter our atmosphere on May 06, 2016. Additionally, a few days later, the splendor of Jupiter moves direct in Virgo at the beginning of May once again. But, by association all earth signs will shine bright with kisses and splendor in the glory of prosperity and abundance until September 2016. By the time Mercury retrograde moves into the ghost period. Gemini’s will be whistling as Venus moves into their signs and summer love will bring their love life a little sparkle. However, when Mars had gone retrograde in Scorpio in April, Scorpios and its opposite Aries, people became, and will continue to become very irritable. This anger may disturb the harmony for many people, and possibly even what they do for a living. While Earth signs are confused, Air signs may love the summer romance, while Water and Fire signs may be creating some steam. I call this period simply, a mixed bag of tricks. May will, however, also bring our last Blue moon until 2019; be on the lookout as it is going to be marvelous.

junjul

Finally, in June and July the universe will give us the break we all need. In June, Venus will enter Cancer and it’s time for Cancerians to spread the love and turn the torch over to his brother Leo. Family and love is always where Leo’s enjoy love to be. Now everyone can finally enjoy their summer until we are glued to our television, or taking a nice vacation to Rio, for the summer Olympics. Or are we preparing for the next eclipse, or the next full moon? No matter what it is, take your favorite Ice tea, put a lounge chair in the water, put on your John Belushi glasses and float. This is exactly what Pisces, and those with Pisces in their charts, will do starting in June when Neptune goes retrograde again. Ok, you may even feel a bit tipsy.
aug2

As the summer gets hotter Mars will enter Sagittarius in early August which will affect all fire signs. Sagittarius’ love to have fun but this time they will get what they want, and if they don’t they won’t hang round for long. Just a few days after Mars enters Sagittarius, Venus enters Virgo (August 04, 2016) where Virgos are sexy, shining, and making everything so sweet. With Jupiter and Venus in Virgo I wonder how many followers beautiful Virgos will have; they will shine bright and have what they need. But if you asked me I think the Olympic committee should have called me before they set the date for the Olympics in Rio. As we are glued to the television on August 5, 2015, the Mercury retrograde ghost period will begin to start making things quite difficult for earth signs, but this time he is holding Virgos hostage. Hence, Virgos will not mind, they will shine quite pretty. As for the rest of us, well, all other earth signs and mutable signs may have a slightly tough time, especially Sagittarius. Saturn, a planet of difficult lessons, finally moves direct in the second week so tough lessons are already on their way for Sagittarius.

aug12

Moving into mid-August, transformation for Aquarius people now begins with their first partial lunar eclipse. These are questions that arose from the eclipse of August 7, 1998 combined with those from the eclipse on August 5, 2009. All those with Aquarius and Air signs in their charts, and fixed signs, will be affected by this eclipse and all unfinished business must be taken care of now. But hold on tight, really tight, we are not finished yet! As we end August, Mercury is still retrograding. The summer Olympics are now over, we just passed an Aquarius Eclipse on August 18, 2016, and we are now ready to hide under the blanket. It’s like the Eagles song Hotel California, “you can check out any time you like but you can never leave.”

sept2

There is a whole lot of shaken’ going on beginning on September 1, 2016; this is the second Virgo/Pisces eclipse, the first being in 2015. You are now being questioned about things from 2006. Yes Virgo, you will be affect by one more eclipse two weeks later, then you are done for 5 to 6 years. Yes, Venus has left your sign by September and you have now given the torch to Libra where it is at home. You will also hand over the torch of Jupiter to Libra as it’s their turn to hold on to it for a little while because too much of a good thing is never good. I hope you used your time well as Jupiter will not be back in your sign until 2025 in the western astrology but guess what… in the eastern astrology it’s about to enter your Jupiter in September so maybe, just maybe, you hit the lotto with a double whammy? Maybe.

junjul2
If you sit for too long to have a drink of water that is way too long on September 16, 2015. We will have another eclipse, yes you got it, and that makes 5 eclipse in 2016. This one is in Pisces therefore it will be considered Pisces/Virgo eclipse. Yes, I promised you Virgo, it is the last eclipse and it is. Pisces however, you do have one more in 2017 and you are done as well. This is also asking about your 2006 lessons. A few days later Venus will enter Scorpio and some things will be hidden. Mars will also enter Capricorn and here we go again – worries galore. But at least for Capricorn, things will look much clearer when planet rebirth goes direct.

oct1

I am looking at, and writing all of this, and I am thinking we need a break in October. Do you feel it coming? By now we are in our ghost period of Mercury retrograde. There needs to be some deep concentration on the Presidency of United States and the people cannot do this when “stop-go” continues to happen. So now the slowdowns are gone for the year. I think. The eclipses are finished. Jupiter is in Libra and Saturn is still in Sagittarius until next year. Uranus will retro and direct in Aries for a while. Neptune will be in Pisces for a while, Pluto will remain in Capricorn for a while, and Chiron in Pisces. So what’s left?

oct11

Ahhh… Super moon! The first super moon will be on October 16, 2016, which will also be a full moon in Aries. As I always say, if you find full moons are bad, a super moon is worse. But something very phenomenal is also occurring just 5 days before the presidential election, which is the black moon on October 30, 2017. The black moon is also a new moon in Scorpio; it a sign of death, rebirth, and secrets; hmm… sounds very mysterious. No, I am not going to predict who will President.

nov1

By the beginning of November we now have a new ruler of the most powerful nation in the world. Mars is in friendly Aquarius yet perhaps friends may be a little demanding of us. Venus, meanwhile, is in worried Capricorn. Finally, our second and the brightest super moon occurs on November 14, 2016; which so happens to be in Taurus. Tsk tsk, a bit stubborn; and to think, in 10 more days we will have Thanksgiving. Are we going to feel as though we wonder where the year went, or are we going to remember the year as thank God it is over? Except for the uncertainty of the nation, November is not so bad. And I promise, the year ends just like it began.

dec1

December 1, 2016, Mercury will enter the ghost period with Mercury in Sagittarius causing intensity around Christmas (something look familiar?). Our third and final super moon occurs on December 14, 2016 (Full moon in Gemini). Ending the year with Venus in Fun Aquarius, Mars in Pisces, Jupiter in Libra, we can now exhale. Virgo’s no more eclipse as promised.

aug1

So what will we learn in 2016? We will learn more about money; how we spend and how we should spend. We will learn about value of relationships. We will learn about family. Most of all, we encounter important lessons of work in progress as 2017 through 2018 is a transformative period of spiritual transitions for many.

Please note these are general predictions not to be noted as western astrology predictions, if you are looking for a western astrologer that can look at your personal chart please see my link here or contact my recommended astrologer Leslie hale here.

Wishing you the best of 2016 and may your transformation be delightful and spiritual looking forwards to talking with you on Facebook and look for my blogs of 2017.

Mercury Retrograde 2015/2016

December 19, 2015 -January 4, 2016

January 5- 25, 2016

January 26-February 16, 2016

By Maharani Rutan©

So we began the year with a full moon and we end the year with a full moon. But one thing for sure, the universe wants us now to really take the time to think about everything that just happened in 2015. Digest our independence, the freedom we take for granted, including conflicts on a political, personal, and professional front. With the conflicts, we not only suffer on an emotional level but they will resonate to our nerves and muscles when we feel the pressure.

The trickster is back! The ghost period of Mercury retrograde has already begun in Capricorn/Sagittarius on December 19, 2015 at approximately 6am EST at 14 degrees. The intensification of Mercury will be at its strongest January 5, 2016 when it begins its journey at 1 degree in Aquarius. Mercury then begins to station direct on 25 of January again at 14 degrees in Capricorn and rests back to 1 degree Aquarius on 16th of February 2016. However, many will still feel the effects of Mercury through its ghost period until February 19, 2016 and until it finally stations direct on the February 28, 2016.

mercaq2015

Many Vedic philosophies consider that a planet which retrogrades initiates its period about 2 to 3 weeks before retrograde position. This is especially true in the Vedic comprehension of how to plan for the obstacles for tomorrow and you will regress any issues. Therefore, I would consider that many of you may start to see the effects as early as the 19th of December, 2015. This phase may be considered an outline of what is yet to come.

This Mercury will take everyone hostage. By default, Gemini’s ruler is Mercury and thus by association, all mutable signs (Virgo, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarius) are always affected. The year-end Mercury is a lot like the beginning of 2015 when we began the year with Mercury in Aquarius. Therefore, all air signs will be affected once again (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius), and by association, this means all fixed signs will be affected (Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius and Taurus) until mid-January. As we move into the more volatile energy between January 1 through 31, Capricorns will get whacked and, of course, by association so will the cardinal signs (Cancer, Aries, Libra and Capricorn). So if you ask me, no one will really survive this retrograde. But like I always say… It’s in the attitude folks.

mercaq28015

When Mercury is retrograde, everyone’s judgment is more reflective and we tend to think about matters and worries that relate to the sign involved. With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius and then into Capricorn, people with this sign prominent in their charts will be particularly prone to such introspection. There is little choice but to reconsider our individual opinions and thoughts about being.

There is, however, a chance to grow and understand our own self-image. When Mercury is retrograding in the signs of Aquarius it creates an emotional and zealous focus on self-autonomy and love with freedom. People’s approaches may change and may be motivated to be very tenacious and hypercritical. The big temptation will be to pressure people into sharing the same mind-set.

mercaq12015
The last time this transit was like this was during the winter of 2008-2009 when the energy was just as intense. Last year we had series of retrogrades which affected air signs; this year though, air signs will be affected by association and the intensity will not rise to what it was in at the end of 2014/beginning of 2015. The difference is that this time it involves everyone. In 2016, Mercury is beginning its movements in earth signs as it ends the air sign period and moves into earth.

As this Mercury sets his foot on more earthy stages the focal point will be earth signs and the affects over introspection of these signs. Mercury in Capricorn produces an ability that is conservative, organized, strong-minded, practical, insightful, stable, and well prepared. During this period many of you may become stern and lack laughter or humor at times. This is because acceptance is being forced into learning that is bestowed upon monetary security, our placement in society, or work principles.


Love affairs will be unpredictable and inconsistent due to egocentric approaches. All areas of communication are alarming, especially matters relating to relatives, business, and particularly anyone who is doing home business, travel, and real estate sales or purchases. Documents could easily go astray. Be sure to carry a journal and refer to it regularly. Gossip regarding associates, partners, and colleagues should be discounted or taken with a grain of salt; especially if sex or money is involved. The plot will coagulate with overtones which lead up to February 28, 2016, which is when Mercury begins to move forward.

There is little choice but to re-examine our individual image and attitude about endurance. When Mercury is retrograding in the signs of Gemini it creates a lucid and communicative motivation and causes us to climb into something new and exceptional. You may even want to get away to a place that you have never visited before. The information that is received by the cosmos during the retrograde period is coming at you to re-examine your past. Thus, history may disturb you or give you better insight into your psyche which will be based upon the truth. This may cause you to return because of fear that may confine or cause you to dread the future or acceptance of change. These tendency will to be prone to confusion, indecision, fickle mindedness, and frustrations. Often times there are predispositions that you must do whatever you can not to become hateful towards criticism and not take it personally.mercaq210015This period can also ruin any business dealings, legal issues, and especially matters of interactions which may be blocked in some way. Writers also may have a block of some kind; it is time for a break if you can.

Recognize that Mercury, when it comes to romance, is about the desires of both people. Since relationships are based upon needs of two there may be a choice between past relationships and the present. This will be a time where people from the past may return and it may be during this time where have to choose if you want to move forward in the relationship or re-consider having a new beginning in your life. Any incomplete business from the past will be re-examined at this time. The energy of Mercury gives you the chance to know exactly what you are doing, especially when considering whether to close, or re-open, doors. Many relationships that do not have a firm foundation could break up during Mercury retrograde because of miscommunication or through re-examination.

mercaq211015

If there is a needed desire to keep a relationship concrete, then it is advisable to consider every relationship with kid gloves, because it is bound end. Additionally if there are any endings, the communication may not straighten out until March 1, 2016; waiting too long may be subjected to “too little too late”. However, relationships are not the only subject of concern during this retrograde period.

Communications of all sorts, whether they be personal, business, legal, political, or even governmental, will have their issues. Due to distributed energies and obstructions, there is an overall theme of arguments, delays, minor mistakes, delayed communications, getting lost, missed appointments, mechanical outage, computer issues, and most of all, accidents.

merc715
Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way due to this visual false impression. Retrograde periods are often difficult since human nature does not want to go back but to only move forward, hence cannot often grip change. Each planet retrogrades, except the Sun and Moon. Mercury, much like the winged messenger of the gods, comes in on feather-light wings and commands us to communicate. Communication, understanding, and consciousness are all within Mercury’s sphere, as are reason and analysis, our manner of philosophy, and how we create and express our thought progression.

In general, Mercury rules thinking and understanding, indulgence, all means of information distribution, trade, and transport. Additionally, Mercury rules people who work in these areas; especially people who work with their minds or intellect such as writers and orators, commentators and columnists, scandal and spin doctors. Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misinterpretation; faulty, disrupted, or delayed communications, talks and trade, glitches and breakdown of phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. These problems usually arise because some critical piece of information was lost or wrong. When Mercury is retrograde, everyone’s thinking is more meditative and we tend to think about topics and concerns that relate to the sign involved. Artistic predispositions including crafts, music, art, or design tend to be blocked by conditions beyond one’s control. Legal matters will proceed bit by bit and unpredictable barriers tend to appear.

mercaq27015

The good things to do when Mercury is Retrograde: envision, reading, adjust the book/poem/song/essay you’ve been writing, clean house, talk to your pet, listen to music, paint, go for a walk, learn yoga, exercise, and most of all catch up on sleep! Mercury is a very lethargic moving planet affecting almost every sign with no discrimination. It is my suggestion that you buy a yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Smear the candle with Inspiration oil or Eucalyptus oil and chant the Psalm 70 every single night. This period will last for 6 weeks (2 weeks prior, 2 weeks retrograde, and 2 weeks moving) and it will be hard on all of us.

These minor suggestions will allow friendly interactions as well as compassion in circumstances. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until February 28, 2016. Remember that with all functions of psalms and mantras achieving the desired consequences is dependent upon the quality of intention. Also, when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear perceptive of what your goal should be.

mercaq25015
The mantras can be hard to voice for many but are a powerful foundation of energy. The mantra for Mercury energy is:

budd2015

“Om Budhaya Namaha”

(Om Bood-han-yah Nahm-ah-ha)

“Om and salutations to Buddha, presiding spirit of planet mercury”

This should be recited December 19, 2015 through February 28, 2016

mercaq29015

This mantra is used to achieve mental rationality, shun and conquer confusion, and keep welcoming interactions flowing.

It is my suggestion that you re-visit areas of your life that need the utmost attention, which is all about you. In this life, even though people in our lives do play a great role, we must take into consideration how we act towards them. We must also take into consideration if our actions, or reactions, create unnecessary conflicts. All humans are given an ego and through our egos we can either create a sublime bliss in our relationship, or create chaos.

mercaq22015
It is my suggestion to set up a timing reading with me or reach out to Leslie Hale who can best help you understand how this retrograde planet will affect you. Remember I am NOT an astrologer, however in the Vedic philosophies we do consider astrological inferences does create a certain characteristic attitude or behavior towards conflicts that interfere in sublime bliss.

Wishing you a joyful holiday… look for my 2016 predictions soon…
