Astro-Numerology (Lesson 7)

© 2000 G. Kumar - Eastrovedica

When the celestial science of the Heavens ( Astrology ) blends with the science of Numbers , we have the fascinating Astro-Numerology. While Pythagorus initiated Numerology in the West, Astrology was initiated by eighteen Seers from India. They were the seer-poets who composed the Vedas, scriptures which were never written and which were cognised in higher states of Consciousness, from Cosmic Consciousness and above.

Seven - ruled by the Moon's Descending Node or the South Node, Ketu.

The two mathematical points where the orbits of the Moon and the Sun intersect are called Ascending Node ( North Node ) & Descending Node ( South Node), Rahu & Ketu.( The orbits of the Sun & the Moon differ by 8 degrees ). They are shadowy planets and not actual planets . They are important determinants of behaviour. In Vedic Astrology great importance is attached to the Nodal Axis which becomes the pivot of the horoscope. In Mythology ( which is allegorical and symbolic ), Rahu & Ketu are characterised as demons as both these shadowy planets are natural malefics. Rahu resembles Saturn & Ketu,Mars.

Personality Oveview

Controller of Life - Moon's Descending Node

You are ruled by the Moon's Descending Node ,Ketu. In the psychic sciences the number seven represents the Divine. People born under this number are always inspired and actu- ated by high ideals. They are always engaged in noble and creative activities.

You are a mystic by nature always tuned to the spiritual world. You are endowed with personal magnetism and people are influenced easily by you.

You will shine in the noble professions ( Medicine, Law, Philosophy, Astrology & Theology ) as your main objective is the alleviation of human suffering.

You are ready to sacrifice your life for attaining the Promised Land of your chosen ideology. You push forth to your aim irrespective of the opinions of the world. You are only happy when your objective is realised.

Your main drawback is that you are too innocent and straight forward which has its drawbacks particularly in business and politics.

Your noble outlook on life will definitely earn you progress in the field of Ethics and Morality. You may not be that prosperous in the material or the worldly sphere.

You are too emotional and writhe at the slightest adversity Perseverance and patience should be incorporated.

In Vedic Astrology the South Node is the significator of Liberation. Along with Jupiter and Saturn , Ketu play a promiment part in the native attaining to Self-Actualisation. The South Node in the twelfth house is preferable from the perspective of Nirvana. Ketu rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac, Beta Arietis( Aswathi), Regulus ( Makha ) & Lamda Scorpii ( Moola ).

An Analytical Review

The zodiac sign representing this number is Scorpio. ( Do not confuse this with the birth sign in Astrology ) Scorpio is the sign of the Mystic the Investigator. Psychic sciences attract them in no uncertain measure. They are always attracted to the mysteries of Nature.

Scorpians show tremendous resilience. They have the ability to bounce back after being at the receiving end. Their determination and tenacity make them winners in the long run.

You do not care for the opinions of others and go ahead with your peculiar outlook on life. As you are stubborn and show a bulldog spirit you are likely to have a lot of enemies. You will be subjected to struggle, strife and suffering as this constellation is fiery in nature and shows all the qualities of the lord of war Mars.

Scorpio is ruled by Mars. In classical Astrology Ketu resembles Mars and hence this constellation is martian in nature. As you are a Martian all the fighting qualities of Mars will be predominant in you. Determination, bulldog spirit leadership, generalship, willpower, resilience - these are the real Martian qualities. Patience perseverance indifference - all these qualities will be lacking in you.

Anger is another passion which will grip you at times.

Negative Aspect

Ketu is a planet which brings salvation through sorrow. In other words he makes you bear the cross. Enmity from one's own kith and kin and sorrow are the net results.

This sloka if recited 108 times daily can ward off the afflictions arising from Ketu. This is the moola sloka of Ketu.

The South Node rules Cat's Eye. Wearing a ring embedded with Cat's Eye on a Shukla Paksha Tuesday can destroy the afflictions arising from Ketu Dasa ( the planetary period of the South Node ). Shukla Paksha is the bright fortnight, 15 days period after the New Moon.

In Transcendental Philosophy the Number Seven is considered very sacred. The seventh state of Consciousness in Transcendental Meditation is the Unified state of Cosmic Consciousness or Unity Consciousness. The Beatitudes are Seven. The Seven Octaves of Music , the seven colours of the spectrum, the seven major planets, the seven days of the week - all these bear ample testimony to the significance attached to the number seven. In the Supramental Dialectic, Universal Being is sevenfold - viz, the Sevenfold Chord of Being being Life, Mind, Matter, Supermind, Being, Knowledge and Bliss.

Seven sciences constitute Dialectics - Ontology, Epistemology, Axiology, Aesthetics, Ethics, Logic and Politics. The seven liberal arts - Rhetoric, Music, Astronomy, Grammar, Logic, Arithmetic and Geometry - and the seven cardinal virtues - Justice, Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence, Knowledge, Wisdom & Understanding - adorn classical Philosophy. The seven reprehensible actions of Aristotlean Ethics - Lust, greed, Jealousy, anger, sloth, covetousness & attachment- have been classified by Dante as the Seven Deadly sins. The seventh principle in Transcendental Philosophy is Absolute Being ( Sat ) which is the source of all existence.

The seven states of Consciousness are called in Yoga as Sapta Bhoomika.

In the next article we will deal with the Eightians - those who are ruled by the planet of boundless time or Eternity, Saturn.
