Meditation

The malefics Saturn and Mars are guilty of all of our depression and anger, in this order. All unhappiness in life can be traced back to disappointment, or lack. When one goes to the core of it, it is lack of affection (Venus) and loss of hope (Jupiter) which activates the malefics within.

The only way to deal with malefics properly is to develop affection within, and to develop hope within, without depending on any external reality or force, without relying on  the love of any one other person.

Meditation and prayer as well as religion are the path which Jupiter takes. Venus takes the path of beauty and appreciation.

But the key of course is that beauty and illumination are not always in our world around us. One day is beautiful and sunny, and the next day it’s raining and the world is a hard place. The only answer is an inner answer.

In meditation, it is possible to find illumination. The key is to stop depending on the external world’s influence. The key is to stop thinking with the rational material mind.
