This will be the beginning of the astrological rituals investigating the ritual application of Yogtara… literally the star combinations.

Yogtaras are points of potency when celestial forces combine.

The ancient Yogins gave them great importance, and sought to align to their celestial teachings.

Where better to begin this endeavor than upon Guru Pushya Yogtara.

This ritual and others alike that will follow, may be of interest to ritual Tantrists and astrological enthusiasts…

This ritual requires absolutely no previous knowledge of Tantric practices or astrology… And so, star gazing bachelors and starstruck housewives alike are welcomed.

In the Yogic arts and sciences, Guru is an epithet for Jupiter.

An auspicious alignment is created when the Moon is in the Nakshatra (lunar mansion) of Pushya on a Thursday (day of Jupiter).

Thursday is Yogicly known as Guruvhwar (day of Guru).

This is an auspicious Yogtara (astral alignment) for subtlety laying the foundations of new creative undertakings.


Guru (Jupiter) has as his astral abode the Nakshatra Pushya. He is the master of the fertile Pushya energy.

Pushya can be summed up as a place of auspicious nourishment.

We find for example that the Goddess Lakshmi is born in Pushya Nakshatra.

She is the Queen of luxury, nourishment and success. We could consider her a femmine expression of Jupiterian force.


Jupiter is the Guru of the Devas, and is a specialist in ultra-terrestrial metaphysics and transition between causal galaxies and inner realities.

The Guru Jupiter is the auspicious planet of Wisdom.

Going to the causal plane and beyond, at the speed of sonic thought, is a natural maneuver for him.

Ritual actions undertaken upon this day, when the planetary alignment of Guru-Pushya-Yog is in effect, are imbued with insights of subtlety, wisdom and vision.

It is considered an astrologically potent time for sparking the kindling of creative endeavors. A creative spark is given astral potency towards the infinite creative flame, when the Yogtara (starry alignment) of Guru-Pushya-Yog is in orbit.


This Particular occupancy of Guru Pushya Yog occurs on the Dark Moon.

The dark Moon is the night of the union of Shakti & Shiva. The dark Moon is the time when the sun and Moon conjunct in one Bhavan (zodiacal house)

The dark Moon is the time of celestial orgasm, when the Sun and Moon come closest together.

This dark Moon is also known as Hariyali Amvasya, which means the fertile green Moon. It is the time when Parvati mounts Shiva and his seed overflows, causing Moonsoon.

The esoteric meaning in the symbolism is a subject for ritual meditation.

‘Twas upon the dark Moon Amavasya that the union of Moon and Star occurred.

It was on the dark Moon night that their celestial lovemaking transpired… the night when Jupiter’s beloved Tara betrayed the Jupiterian Guru.

Tara is the star woman of celestial longings. When the wise Guru got too metaphysical and distant in his profound pursuits, she found solace in the lunarly arms and shimmering, shivery Moonbeams of Chandra

Jupiter was so lost in profound metaphysics that he ignored Tara’s womanly energies.

Tara felt abandoned and was soon afterwards charmed by the lunar rays of the Moon.

In the absence of the old wise Jupiterian Guru, Moon and star made celestially sparkling love on the dark Moon, and conceived Budha (the planet Mercury)


Mercury, Jupiter and the Moon together, form a triangle of father themes.

When Guru-Pushya-Yog occurs on an Amavasya, it is an auspicious time and opportunity for healing ancestral energies related to the patrilineal line.

This ritual will be a practice based investigation into the relationship between Tara, Budh, Chandra and Guru (Star, Mercury, Moon & Jupiter)

We will look into the esoteric meaning of the celestial scandal that resulted in the antagonism between Moon and Mercury, why Jupiter became foster parent to the Moon…and the position of the woman and mother Tara… she be the twinkling mother woman of the celestial firmament.

Oh her name means Star!

Ancient Tantra

These ancient Tantric healing circles come from a left hand line of Indian Tantra, rare to find even in India today. You will take part in a sacred Yogic tradition that roots itself in Indian lineage handed down orally between generations of Yogis, Babas, Sadhus and Fakirs.
You will be exposed to the old Tantric ways of profound healing and spiritual practice, including practicing in darkly-lit spaces and awakening the senses to the body’s subtle energy currents, holding simple postures for long periods of time, and engaging in powerful breath-work and inner and outer Mantra to open-up the body and take the mind into altered states of consciousness.
The practice draws on postures seldom used in modern styles of yoga, ancient sequences that honour the mother and the feminine, gently opening-up the body to its highest levels of flexibility.
Integral to this work is the exploration of sound-currents present in the body, perhaps one of Yoga’s greatest secrets and one of the most powerful vehicles through which the Karmic. patterns stored in the Chakras can be accessed and resolved.

Boonath in Bhandgiriasan


The practice usually takes place in the dark or darkly-lit spaces.
