December 20/21st is the Total Lunar Eclipse

A Total Lunar Eclipse will be visible after midnight Eastern Standard Time on December 21 in North and South America. The beginning of the total eclipse will be visible from northern Europe just before sunrise. The end of the total eclipse will be visible rising at sunset for Japan and northeastern Asia.
It will be the first total lunar eclipse in nearly 3 years, the last being on February 20, 2008.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth gets between the Sun and the Moon, casting its shadow on the Moon. Solar eclipses occur during New Moons, and Lunar Eclipses occur during Full Moons. The eclipse of the Moon, when the light of the Moon mysteriously darkens at the luminous height of a Full Moon, has traditionally been viewed as a bad omen as it can awaken distinctly irrational responses.

A Solar Eclipse affects people on a more outward, public level. A Lunar eclipse will cause he Moon governs the emotional personality, rather than leadership, domestic matters so one can expect a deeper, more inward shift with this upcoming Lunar Eclipse.

Wherever an eclipse falls in your chart is an area of life that is going to undergo some change, or at least require more of your time and attention than usual for the next five months or so.

December 20th is the Full Moon

The ruler of the Moon is Parvati, the Goddess or Shakti. At Chidambaram she is called Sri Sivagami. She is that which guides the mind in the right direction in life through her many phases. When the Moon is full, it is the time to focus on material concerns such as home, clothes and money. The Goddess is the energy force behind creation while Shiva is the cause.

What is Karma?

Why do some people have a successful career, loads of money, a seemingly great romantic life and radiant health and vitality while many others suffer for the want of one or many of these?
This is due to karma.
Karma rules all aspects of human life like health, wealth, education etc...
Everyone has a choice to live his/her old karma or create a new one. Because they do not know the technology to change their old karma, they simply live their old karma until they die.
Karma is not just a metaphysical philosophy; it is real. Whatever you think becomes a reality in the invisible space-time complex of your soul. Then it manifests in life after an appropriate lapse of time. It is extremely important to remain positive and only nurture positive thoughts. There is a danger of the negative thoughts catching up to us and inflicting us in this life or in a life to come. It is the thought process that creates karma. It is the planets that influence thought.
A person must fulfill the responsibilities of personal karma with limitations before moving into a more advanced level of consciousness, or an unlimited, higher reality.
Karmic debt does not permit us to go beyond our limited consciousness. However Saturn’s lessons give opportunity. It is by understanding and working with Saturn that we can find balance with past karma and can go forward consciously to a more refined way of self-expression as an individual and collectively.
As we progress through life, we often find that it is through restrictions and the pain which comes from thwarted desires or aspirations, that we develop a greater understanding of the Laws of Life. No pain no gain.
Technology to Remove Old Karma
Pradosham timings provide the ideal opportunities to dissolve karmas. Since we accrue karmas every day, karma removal is an ongoing process; quite like cleaning your house or brushing your teeth.
Pradosham Each Day
You can observe this daily by chanting the mantra "Thiru Neela Kantam" inwardly or outwardly at any time during the dusk period. 108 times is considered the minimum or you can do 1,008 or 10,008.
Perform daily abishekam during this time by pouring milk or water over a Shiva Lingam while chanting the mantra.
