April 13 - Auspicious Transit

On April 13th at 1.50 p.m., GMT, a rare astronomical event will occur that happens once every 1,000 years. The happening takes place as the Sun moves into the sign of Aries and simultaneously, the moon will be in the Pushya star constellation (in Cancer).

Yogis say that during this celestial conjunction, the left and right hemispheres of the brain will undergo a radical change and will be able to receive greater intelligence. In Yoga, the left brain is associated with the Sun and the right brain with the Moon. Astrologers predict that this rate astronomical event with affect the subtle body as well as the physical brain. It is believed to be an auspicious time for change.

In Indian mythology it was at the auspicious time that the moon was in Pushya that Dasartha appointed his son Rama to be ruler of Dasaratha:

“In the morning, when the moon traverses Pushya, I shall appoint my son, Rama, who is the supreme support of religion, as successor to the throne.”[Ayodhya Kanda-- Canto II]
