Rahu & America’s Date with Destiny @ Ayurvedic Health Center
Jun 22 @ 7:00 pm
Rahu & America's Date with Destiny @ Ayurvedic Health Center | Bellingham | Washington | United States

Join Dennis as he forecasts Rahu’s cycle and America’s date with destiny

“To everything there is a season, and time to every purpose under the heavens,” from Ecclesiastes is the tune for these times as America has entered into a new season of time; the cycle of Rahu. Rahu is the planet of storm and rebellion in Vedic astrology. It will come as no surprise that the United States was born on July 4, 1776 in the planetary cycle of Rahu!

If we wish to forecast the fruit of a particular season, we need to look back on the historical record of that past season, for as Mark Twain mused, “History never repeats itself, but often it rhymes.”
