  • The Juice Vedic astrology principle at play
  • Juicy Detailsproviding deeper understanding, details, advice + 10 top tips

The Pit

Let’s get down to the issue, but don’t break a tooth…

Three Senators are suspended by the Canadian Senate – without pay – pending an investigation by the RCMP, for collecting up to six figures of ineligible expense claims. PM of Canada accused of orchestrating “monstrous cover-up” and white-washing financial audits.

Mayor Ford of Toronto caught on tape smoking crack cocaine, admits to driving while in a drunken stupor – and is refusing to step down.

The Pulp

You’re getting it – the press creates the pulp…

For those just tuning in to the Canadian news:

According to The Toronto Star, Sen. Pamela Wallin, former television journalist says she’s being targeted, is the victim of a political vendetta and blames two other Conservative senators for orchestrating leaks of damning information to the media to cast her conduct in the “worst possible light.” The CBC reveals that Sen. Mike Duffy, also a former television journalist, has taken aim at the Prime Minister’s office and staff claiming he was part of a back-room deal to “white-wash” the scandal and help re-pay Duffy’s expense claims. The CBC reports that Sen. Brazeau claims he’s done nothing wrong, and that he’d been given “tacit” approval to claim a secondary residence.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper supports suspension without pay and denies allegations of white-washed audits

According to the National Post, Prime Minister Stephen Harper is satisfied that the three suspended Senators …”have collected up to $100,000 of ineligible expenses, and did so willingly over a long period of time.”Harper flatly denies Duffy’s allegations that he’d helped orchestrate a “monstrous” political scheme to repay Duffy’s expenses and whitewash an audit once they became “political dynamite.”

Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto admits to drug use and DUI’s – city council wants him out

Mayor Ford of City of Toronto admits to smoking crack cocaine and driving under the influence “while in a drunken stupor – you know how I get”… but refuses to step down. Toronto City Council is trying every legal means to force him to step aside (to take care of his health issues) or resign.

Sun transits Libra, 2013: debilitated, eclipsed by Rahu and attacked by Saturn – things could get beastly in business!


More to chew on…

  • Why is financial, business, and personal corruption in the forefront?
  • Why are the accused denying allegations and throwing blame?
  • Why is integrity in business so important right now?
  • Solar eclipse of debilitated Sun in Swati Nakshatra November 3, 2013 reveals all

According to Vedic Astrology – eclipse patterns portend changes

Eclipse patterns portend change and this can express itself in environmental, social, economic or spiritual shifts. When a planet is eclipsed – or swallowed by Rahu, the north node of the moon – those areas where we have misplaced ambitions, endless appetites for money and the good life, inappropriate, slippery or out-of-tune behaviors – can be made public.

This is a time to re-balance, and take care of these things, or get our heads snipped off – as Rahu/Ketu did. (You may recall the story of the cosmic snake Vasuki where misplaced ambitions led him to steal a sip of Amrit (granting eternal life) – only to have his head snipped off by Vishnu when his misdeed was revealed by the Sun and Moon. Cut into two immortal parts (Rahu and Ketu), Rahu is eternally resentful towards the two luminaries who revealed him, and is forever unfulfilled. His brooding resentments lead him to attempt to swallow (or eclipse) the Sun and Moon – up to seven times every year.

In other words, Rahu the guilty – blames those who caught him with his hand (or in this instance his mouth) in the cookie jar – stealing the nectar of eternal life. Rahu the cosmic addict, will do anything possible to throw a shadow (eclipse) or aspersions to ruin the reputation of those who revealed him – and try to distract with denials, re-directs, and general finger-pointing.

In casting his shadow – Rahu reveals himself

In throwing an eclipse shadow over the Sun (or Moon) Rahu’s shadowy head is revealed for the world to observe.

Remember that it is in the nature of Rahu to not take responsibility for his inappropriate behaviors and to try to blame those that pointed out his crime of stealing Amrit to Vishnu. The luminaries – the Sun and the Moon blew the whistle on Rahu – and as such became the target of Rahu’s fury. Rahu tries mightily to throw a shadow ( eclipse), or cast aspersions on the Sun (representing leaders) and Moon (the public awareness). There may be powerful attempts to re-direct the public attention and criticize those who pointed out the flawed behaviors. Don’t be fooled or distracted – get back to the basics of this or any comparable situation: who, what, where, when and how.

The three Canadian Senators accused of wrong-doing are doing their level best to throw aspersions everywhere – and not taking responsibility for their own actions. Each claims they’ve been unfairly targeted. Similarly, Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto, blames the Chief of Police, City Council , and nearly everyone else for “targeting” him.

Eclipses of the Sun also reveal where leadership can improve

Solar eclipse patterns can also reveal where leadership (the Sun and governing bodies) needs to improve. Even though the Sun shines all of the time – there are moments when it is humbled (or eclipsed) by shadowy effects. If there has been wrong-doing or inappropriate behavior on the part of leadership – it will also come to the forefront. The full eclipse of November 3rd, 2013 is one such opportunity. This is a time to look carefully to see where leadership and government can improve. If leaders are committed to a positive change, the results of the solar eclipse pattern may provide an opportunity for them to effect positive progress. Otherwise, the public may not like what they see and replace them. In Canada, this means that the Prime Minister, the Canadian Senate, (including those suspended) and the Mayor of Toronto will be scrutinized over the next 6 months – November 2013 – April, 2014. It’s a good opportunity for them to clean up their messes, work hard to re-establish trust with the people, and re-attune themselves to their ethical and moral leadership responsibilities


Seven major events in the press stand out in late October to early November, 2013 in Canada.

There may be many more events as the month proceeds – from different parts of the globe – but these stand out for me as of November 2, 2013

  • Canadian Senate’s financial scandal is scrutinized by Auditor General
  • Three Senate members are to be suspended without pay pending further RCMP investigations
  • PM Stephen Harper, the PM’s office, and other Senate Members come under attack by accused senators alleging cover-ups, similar abuse of expense claims and audit white-washing
  • PM Stephen Harper defends a Senate decision to suspend accused Senators and denies allegations of a “monstrous” cover-up
  • Toronto Police have recovered the video showing Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine, Toronto police Chief Bill Blair said Thursday.
  • “I have no reason to resign,” Mayor Ford said at a raucous 2:30 p.m. press conference despite calls from councillors for him to step down.
All are connected by the Eclipse of November 3, 2013 in Swati
