Lajitaadi Avashtas Master's Course - Sun - Finding your Kingdom
I'm so thrilled about your new course. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us!
In the video about the Sun you mention the importance of finding your own kingdom. Are you going to address how to find that kingdom over the course of the following videos? (I have been trying to find an answer to this for most of my adult life. Although I have a really nice exalted Sun that is strongly delighted by both Moon and Mars, it's actually been quite difficult for me to find that kingdom.)
Or would we need to use a different technique? I remember in the Jaimini course for beginners you mentioned that our kingdom is whichever house the Sun rules in our chart and the other houses aspected by the Sun will be sacrificed for the sake of that kingdom.
Then again, I get the sense that this course is not about the concrete things we'll have in our life (reflected by our Deeptadi Avashtas, which I think you said we cannot change), but more about developing the capacity to listen to our internal guidance. So maybe you do not want us to analyze the concrete things of our chart at all, since we are trying to change our Lajitaadi Avashtas and thus the subjective experience reflected by the placements in our chart. Am I understanding that correctly?
And just for clarification: When you talk about bad habits, you always mean bad Lajitaadi Avashtas, right? Since we can theoretically have a planet that has bad Deeptadi Avashtas, but good Lajiitadi Avashtas and vice versa. If the person has a planet in bad DA and good LA, that means the concrete thing they have is not that great, but they make the best of out of it from a psycho-social/ emotional point of view, right? And if a person has a planet in a good DA and bad LA, the person has something that is objectively good, but they muck it up in their head?
If our Lajitaadi Avashtas are the most important thing to focus on, since we can change them, would studying our Deeptadi Avasthas and Jaimini techniques not be somewhat of a hindrance? Isn't seeing how what we will have is limited (as it is for everyone to some extent) also mentally limiting?
Have a great day!
Edit: If you also have a strong Sun with mainly good Lajitaadi Avasthas and don't feel like you've had a consistent kingdom, I'd encourage you to check whether you also have the Rajju Yoga (most planets in movable Rasis) in your birth chart. I just found out I have this and it really explained a lot. This kind of yoga will indicate a life full of changes. You can find more about it under Audio Courses>Yogas of Character. It's one of the Asraya Yogas.
Interesting... I was wondering the same thing about the Sun and my kingdom and « blamed » it on my debilitated Sun 🤓. That being said, my grandma was an October baby as well and she was very much like the lady secretary that Ernst talks about in the video: she started working in her 40´s when my grandfather suddenly passed away, in the mailroom of a bank, she was very consistent saving money and managed to buy 3 apartments in Paris (in addition of her own!) leaving us a comfortable real estate « empire » when she passed away 11 years ago. I was always impressed by how she managed to achieve that on a clerk level salary. While I don’t have the answer to your questions, I remember my mentor telling me: « you need more than inspiration, you need aspiration ». And, am not sure the answer can be found in books or techniques but I remember Ernst giving us some tips in one of his videos (YouTube I believe) about just being with ourselves and seeing what comes up. My take is that our kingdom reveals itself once we’ve let go of all of our bad habits (which I understand is the bad Lajjitaadi Avasthas). As an example, in my own life, I’ve been doing a lot of yoga these past 20 something years and even became a yoga teacher (I have 3 certifications!) until recently working through my Rahu/Ketu stuff and realizing I don’t even like yoga 😩. What I love is to dance but a childhood negative experience made me think I wasn’t dance material. Yet, I’ve always been darn good at it. So I turned to yoga instead. Now I don’t do yoga anymore, I dance (for fun).
Now, if this course provides more answers and a shortcut, I’ll take it! 😎🤩
About the kingdom, we have been conditioned to think that a kingdom is a certain something, and for some it is, but not for everyone. A kingdom is the result of a person living the life that they are. A person may have a dabbling kingdom actually. its still consistent, fixed, its the sun, but they like to dabble. A lot of people have these types of kingdoms, but they are always beating themselves up for not having the other kind of kingdom, which for them would be a rut kingdom, and not right for them at all.
To live as ourselves we have to free our minds, its really getting out of the matrix. I will talk more about that after the planet intro vids and before the actual lajjitaadi avasthas, in addition to talking about just how intelligent the inner voice is.
the way we find our kingdom, is the same as anyting else in life, we follow our inner guidance system, good habits, instead of our conditioning and wounds, bad habits.
and yes, bad habits means bad lajjitaadi avashtas and these are often mixed. And yes, we will be better off just learning to follow good habits and thus listening to our inner voice than we would be looking at our charts for things other than the lajjitaadi avasthas. Why, becuase our inner voice is 100% correct, while our reading of the chart is at best 80%, AT BEST, and there is so much stuff that happens that we dont even see in the chart. HOwever, it takes a long time to learn to listen to our inner voice, meaning, change those bad habits, so having astrology around to help can be a good thing. But eventually, the freedom of following your inner voice becomes great enough that trying to figure out things from your chart simply becomes a burden. THe amount of energy we WASTE trying to figure out our lives instead of living it, is tremendous, the freedom from just living it instead of trying to figure it out is a wonderful thing.

How very true....Words of the wise....
These bad habits of the avasthas were started by a child with undeveloped cognitive powers, inability to walk or even take care of themselves in the least ways. Once we understand the habit, we can change it because we can walk, we do have our brains developed, we are able and so can exert our will, which we could not do as a child or infant.
