2. Definition of Time Time is defined as the linear progression of the state of being, divided into various cycles and sub-cycles. The utility of some of these cycles, or progressions, will be demonstrated in this lecture. 3. Progressions of Time for Human Beings – One year of human life is the equivalent of 1 day of the gods – Manu Smriti Freud’s first publication on sexuality, “Three Essays on Sexuality,” as well as Einstein’s “Annus Mirabillus” paper on Brownian motion (Atomic theory) occurred with Pluto’s ingress into the sign of Gemini in 1905 First Moon walk by astronaut Neil Armstrong on 7/20/1969, came with Pluto’s ingress into the sign of Virgo. “Black Monday” stock market crash on 10/19/1987 – exact ingress of Uranus into sidereal Sagittarius US entry into World War 1 on 4/6/1917 – exact ingress of Uranus into the sidereal sign of Aquarius

The Sun’s movement demarcates the movement of time. In the course of his regular transit the Sun moves through twelve signs of the zodiac in one year, and thus one sign of the zodiac in one month, and one degree per day. A year is thus defined as aSamvatsara, or the time taken for the Sun to transit 360 zodiacal degrees. The Sun’s movement at 1 degree per day is equivalent to 1 year of time, based on the above principle from Manu Smriti.. This principle is the basis of all progression and dashas systems in Vedic astrology. The Sun’s movement at this rate to the end of the first Naksatra Paryaya indicates the end of life for human beings. The year 120 (the full life span of humans) is reached at one degree per year progression
