Saturn Transits to Natal Sun

It happens every 29 years. Saturn stays in one sign for 2.5 years. Which is a long period than other planets although it is known as a slow-moving planet among all 9 planets.

However, Saturn transits to your natal Sun make you question whether you are satisfying or not with yourself and force you to make more efforts to correct all your past mistakes.

Your romantic feelings and your love relationships also suffer a crisis so that you learn to truly reflect your inner being. The Saturn represents limitations, being alone, setbacks, responsibility, and patience. It is gain through losses. It is our insecurities.

We should reap what we sow, delay gratification, cultivate patience, and become responsible should not take things for granted, and we have to become productive, useful people in some manner or else we will perish.

The first Saturn transit over the natal Sun signals the end of innocence. Actually, it signals the end of native ignorance too, if one is willing and able. The first Saturn transit over the natal sun signifies the first time in the life of a person that he or she becomes aware that he or she occupies a space within the larger world.

Children who experience this may often come out wise beyond their years if Saturn manifests as a person to whom the child unduly becomes responsible for.

Teenagers may have something manifest in their lives that suddenly robs them of their innocence, and adults who experience this transit for the first time tend to be, the shock of sudden responsibility, of having to realize their limits, can be worse when they are conditioning to think otherwise.

Saturn Transits to Natal Sun

It indicates the end of associations, but often, these are good things, as they are distractions from the real work one must be doing. They do often indicate a separateness from peers or from the family name and can either be a desire to individuate or a desire to salvage it from the rubble heap.

Saturn transits to the natal sun indicate a desire not to repeat the mistakes of the people who came before us and the work to be done in order to not do that again.

also, it gives aloneness. Saturn teaches us that one doesnt need to approval of others to be valid; we are valid because we exist. Saturn teaches us to depart from those who no longer serve us and to let go of people who need to travel elsewhere. It teaches us that we can weather emotional storms, as they too, pass.

Buckwheat Nutrition

Buckwheat Nutrition

Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum), also known as common buckwheatJapanese buckwheat and silverhull buckwheat, is a plant cultivated for its grain-like seeds and as a cover crop. A related and more bitter species, Fagopyrum tataricum, a domesticated food plant common in Asia, but not as common in Europe or North America, is also referred to as buckwheat. It is not related to wheat, as it is not a grass. Instead, buckwheat is related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb. Because its seeds are rich in complex carbohydrates, it is referred to as a pseudocereal.

Composition of Buckwheat

Starch

  • 71–78% in groats
  • 70–91% in different types of flour
  • Starch is 25% amylose and 75% amylopectin.
  • Depending on hydrothermal treatment, buckwheat groats contain 7–37% of resistant starch.

Protein

  • Crude protein is 18%, with biological values above 90%. This can be explained by a high concentration of all essential amino acids, especially lysine, threonine, tryptophan, and the sulphur-containing amino acids.

Minerals

  • Rich in iron (60–100 ppm), zinc (20–30 ppm) and selenium (20–50 ppb)

Polyphenols

  • 10–200 ppm of rutin, 0.1–2% of tannins and presence of catechin-7-O-glucoside in groats.

Fagopyrin

It contains 0.4 to 0.6 mg/g of fagopyrins (at least 6 similar substances)

Aromatic compounds

Salicylaldehyde (2-hydroxybenzaldehyde) was identified as a characteristic component of buckwheat aroma. 2,5-dimethyl-4-hydroxy-3(2H)-furanone, (E,E)-2,4-decadienal, phenylacetaldehyde, 2-methoxy-4-vinylphenol, (E)-2-nonenal, decanal and hexanalalso contribute to its aroma. They all have odour activity value more than 50, but the aroma of these substances in an isolated state does not resemble buckwheat.

***

Nutrition in Buckwheat

In a 100-gram serving providing 343 calories dry and 92 calories cooked, buckwheat is a rich source (20% or more of the Daily Value, DV) of protein, dietary fiber, four B vitamins and several dietary minerals, with content especially high (47 to 65% DV) in niacin, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus. Buckwheat is 72% carbohydrates, including 10% dietary fiber, 3% fat and 13% protein.

Gluten-free Buckwheat

As it contains no gluten, it may be eaten by people with gluten-related disorders, such as celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity or dermatitis herpetiformis. Nevertheless, it may have gluten contamination.

Negative reactions of Buckwheat

Cases of severe allergic reactions to buckwheat and buckwheat-containing products have been reported. It contains fluorescent phototoxic fagopyrins. Seeds, flour, and teas are generally safe when consumed in normal amounts, but fagopyrism can appear in people with diets based on high consumption of its sprouts, and particularly flowers or fagopyrin-rich buckwheat extracts. Symptoms of fagopyrism in humans may include skin inflammation in sunlight-exposed areas, cold sensitivity, and tingling or numbness in the hands.

What is Nakshtra and Their Names

Nakshatra (Sanskrit: नक्षत्र, IAST: Nakṣatra) is the term for lunar mansion in Hindu astrology. A nakshatra is one of 28 (sometimes also 27) sectors along the ecliptic. Their names are related to the most prominent asterisms in the respective sectors.

The starting point for the nakshatras according to Vedas is “Krittika” (it has been argued because the Pleiades may have started the year at the time the Vedas were compiled, presumably at the vernal equinox), but, in more recent compilations, the start of the nakshatras list is the point on the ecliptic directly opposite to the star Spica called Chitrā in Sanskrit, which would be Ashvinī, an asterism that is part of the modern constellation Aries, and these compilations, therefore, may have been compiled during the centuries when the sun was passing through the area of the constellation Aries at the time of the vernal equinox. This version may have been called Meshādi or the “start of Aries”.

The first astronomical text that lists them is the Vedanga Jyotisha.

In the Atharvaveda (Shaunakiya recension, hymn 19.7) a list of 28 stars or asterisms is given, many of them corresponding to the later nakshatras:

  1. Kṛttikā (the Pleiades)
  2. Rohinī (Aldebaran)
  3. Mrigashīrsha
  4. Ārdrā (Betelgeuse)
  5. Punarvasu
  6. Pushya
  7. Asleshā
  8. Maghā (Regulus)
  9. Purva phalguni
  10. Uttara phalguni (Denebola)
  11. Hasta
  12. Chitrā (Spica)
  13. Svāti (Arcturus)
  14. Vishākhā
  15. Anurādhā
  16. Jyeshthā
  17. Mūla
  18. Purva ashadha
  19. Uttara ashadha
  20. Shravana
  21. Dhanishta
