Two topics : Desires AND Forbidden Pleasures - Domain of the 7th House

Post by Khoo Hock Leong » 12 Dec 2018

Hi Learned Members

This video talks about desires and forbidden pleasures by Sadhguru which includes the tasting of the apple which is the fruit of knowledge (remember Christianity is related to the sign of Pisces (a natural sign of the 12th which is the expansion of the 7th, the house of desires) so is moksha, and remember in the thread on The Cross of Visnu - Planet's Exaltaion Points; I said that Ketu, Mercury and Venus are the main moksha planets. At that time, some readers may be wondering why Venus? Remember I said that it is because once your desires are fulfilled, you have no more longing to be reborn in this planet, so that leads to moksha.

Here is the video :

Search by the title "Sadhguru - Don't TRY to destroy your desire, because you cannot !

Some salient points talked about in this video that is related to the 7th house :

Earthly desires are an unconscious expression of our innate desire to be unbounded. This epitomises Venus nicely Venus as a planet represent desires, but it also represents the best powers of each of the trnity of God of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. That is one source of Lakshmi according to the scriptures.

You cannot stop your desires. This means Venus always win the planetary war.

But you can circumvent it by going to your innermost being. Venus with ketu represent tapas, and Saturn add to the devotional aspect to God on top of the Venus-Ketu combination.

Venus is exalted in Pisces the sign of Christianity. Venus gave the teaching not to eat the forbidden fruit but Jupiter rules apples and Jupiter is the planet of knowledge. Venus through the storytelling with his mascot Rahu, the serpent head (human thought), propounded the fallacy.

All ideas are from Sadhguru. And he is a Yogi speaking from a religious Vedic scriptures) point of view. I am just trying to link it up with Vedic Astrology and it holds from the Astrological perspective based on what I have said above.

The fruit of knowledge represents the intellect which Venus (exalted in Pisces) through Rahu is tempting man to eat.

Jupiter, ruling Pisces, represents the wisdom in man to get to know God in better. Ultimately, only knowledge connected with God is what matters.

But Jupiter rules apples according to Lal Katib.

So basically we can admire the apple as God's creation and glean wisdom from it, but by eating it, our intellect expanded, and we started to question a lot of things about life's creation.
