«Help my fourteen generations of ancestors, my fourteen generations of successors, and me and the rest of my family to find places to reside in the abode of the Devas» (Mahānirvāna-tantra, 13.249).


With opposite Sun and Jupiter this month will be a test to understand what point your projects have reached, Gemini. Plans set up during birthday reach a climax six months later. Maybe it won’t be all as planned and thus there can be some disappointment. In your case, Gemini, opposite Mercury in the second half of the month can contribute with nervousness and unnecessary disputes. The only solution is not to give in to the negative push of Jupiter: do not be arrogant! If you try to be open to others, you will get over the best and you will be satisfied at the New Year’s Eve, when the Moon in trine will help you have fun!

Karunā is a more popular concept in Buddhism than in yoga. Yet compassion appears with an important role in different yogic contexts: in the Brhadāranyaka-upanishad it is said that Prajāpati, the primordial being, invited men, gods and demons to practice moderation, generosity and piety; in the Bhagavad-gītā maitrī (benevolence, sympathy) and karunā (compassion) are among the virtues that characterize the perfect yogi; in Yoga-sūtra karunā is considered necessary for mental serenity.

Do not think that others acts against you and do not get nervous, Gemini. Watch and listen and try to understand if what others have to say can be useful. Every point of view has its own motivation.
