July - Aug 2010 Vol.4 No.4 >> Astrowatch >> Shakti Bhava, the Healing Grace in Vedic Astrology


Hindu Tantra teaches the worship of the Goddess, the feminine aspect of Divinity, by unfolding her presence and dynamism within us. Tantra views the feminine as the ultimate embodiment of wisdom, receptivity, compassion and nurturing as the very energy of consciousness, while the masculine force manifests as being, will, acuity and perception.

Vedic Astrology and Hindu Tantra are part of a comprehensive yogic science for understanding the outer world and the inner psyche as well as how they interface together. Along with Ayurveda, Vedanta and Vaastu Shastra, they all reflect the pranic force or Kundalini, the transcending energy of consciousness and its ability to unfold our higher potential in life. The sacred key to this transformation rests in awakening the Shakti force in whatever we do, and acting with grace, decisiveness and the determination born of a motivation to reach the ultimate.

The Goddess possesses all forms of beauty and bliss in the world of nature through the Shaktis or innate powers of the mountains, the flow of rivers, the glittering dance of the stars in the heavens, and the delight of the Earth’s flora and fauna. Her beauty and mystery hold the alluring attraction of the unknown which draws us into the vast domain of her eternal secrets. Shakti represents what is gupta or hidden, not what is evident or easy to see. A special vision and effort are necessary to pierce beyond her veil to her luminous core. As the divine word or yogic knowledge, the Goddess endows us with a sharper focus through which we can discern her many leveled teachings that reveal the whole and the essence of all that we encounter. Her mantric language expresses a Tantric symbolism through the elements, qualities, beings and forces that interact and interrelate in the subtle currents behind our outer existence.
