Anta – term

«That is the way of the spiritual and godly life, after attaining which a man is not bewildered. If one is thus situated even at the hour of death, one can enter into the kingdom of God» (Bhagavad-gītā, 2.72).

In the text the word anta-kāle is used to mean on the verge of death. Anta is in fact a word that is used to indicate the “limit”, the “end”, the “term”. This is what in commercial terms today would be called the deadline.

Looks like you’ve set a deadline for Christmas, Virgo. You have the idea that you have to finish everything possible to prepare yourself for the year to come. You want to do so much that you risk getting lost and bewildered and thus making mistakes or colliding with someone. It is right to do, but the verse above reminds us that man is confused outside the spiritual path. Then remember to keep an inner center, which helps you stabilize. Fortunately, a good moon at Christmas puts you in the mood to find it and keep doing what you need to do but with less frenzy and more positivity.
