The Sun belongs to a galaxy called the Milky Way. Astronomers estimate there are about 100 thousand million stars in the Milky Way alone. Outside that, there are millions upon millions of other galaxies also!

Facts about the Milky Way Galaxy:

Age: 13-15 Billion years
Number of Stars: 100 billion
Diameter: 100,000 light years
Diameter of the central bulge: 25,000 light years
Distance of our sun from the GC: 27,000 light years
Orbital velocity of our Sun around the GC: 135 miles per second
Time for the Sun to orbit around the GC: 250 million years

In Sanskrit, the milky way is named after the ancient Saraswati River which hosted this ancient race of people who left us the Vedas. Akash Ganga.

“We have a habit of naming galaxies after rivers; the Milky Way is referred to as Akash Ganga. So we thought of naming this supercluster after the ancient river Saraswati,” says Prof. Raychaudhury

(In Spanish, the Milky Way is called a few different things. First, via lactea, or the Milky Way. Camino de Santiago means the “Road of Santiago” or “Road to Santiago,” and was used for the Milky Way because pilgrims used it to guide them to Santiago de Compostela, a holy site. Compostela is the third way to say the name of the galaxy, and this one is perhaps the most accurate of all the different names. It literally means “the field of stars.”)


At the center of our galaxy – the Milky Way – is a supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A*. It is SO large that it has mass millions of times greater than the Sun. But our galaxy is not unique; at the heart of most spiral or elliptical galaxies is always placed a supermassive black hole.


The current position of the Galactic Centre is 27°3′ of Sagittarius, moving about 1° every 72 years. This  new moon eclipse falls at 29.04 degrees of Sagittarius, that’s close enough to consider it done.

Let’s look at the nakshatra that rules this location.


The 21st nakshatra is home of the 2 stars in the breast of the archer. It’s symbol is the elephant tusk representing the blessing of Ganesha. This make the time quiet auspiscious.  It also is symbolized by planks of a bed which give rest and comfort. It is called the, ‘universal star” and represents deep humanitarian concern and fairness to all races. ( Harness).

“Uttara Ashadha represents the complete integration of god like power and brings us to our summit of power, support and recognition, although although not so much by our own power but by the collective that forms alliances that work together for the betterment of humanity.

It can also translate as, ‘the latter unconquered’ or the ‘undefeated’.


We have been going in and out of this fateful formation for months now. Look how all of the planets are between the current eclipse points. This makes is all very interesting and definitely creates a lot more cosmic alchemy.


Here we have focus on government. We are in such a time of global awareness.

This chart is very strong and I believe positive. Let’s see what happens!

“May you live in interesting times” chinese proverb.

And this is THAT!

Om Shanti Om,

Love only…
