December is nearly here! We shall examine the story that the movement of planets in the Vedic sky spells out for next month, but first a nice reminder:
11/29/15 – This evening benefic Venus moves happily into its own sign of LIBRA. All those with Libra Moon or Rising signs in the Vedic Astrology system will be feeling so much better, as the ruler of your birth chart leaves its nearly four week transit of your 12th house of loss and expenditures, in its sign of debilitation, no less, and traveling with that rough character Rahu (and Mars as well). By tomorrow you will begin to feel attractive, sexy, warm, affectionate and a lot more sociable than you have felt all this month. What a relief, eh?
VENUS also rules fixed earth sign, Taurus. This new transit won’t be quite as pleasurable for our Taurus friends, as Libra represents your 6th house of worry, stress, enemies, rivals, competitors and health problems. So there can be a “too much to do and not enough time to do it” pressure type of feeling now. Try and enjoy the holidays, even so. Venus does not change signs again until right on Christmas day, when it enters Scorpio – this will be a good position for both the Librans and Taureans. Scorpios will likely enjoy that shift as well, on 12/25.
12/05/15 – MERCURY moves into Sagittarius late this night. In fact it will occur 12/06 for those in the eastern and central time zones. For both of the signs that Mercury rules, Virgo and Gemini, this new position represents good houses for you. Geminis will feel more outgoing and less stressed or worried now. Virgos will be connecting with friends and supporters more, as well as enjoying the comforts of home. Both will be glad that Mercury now pulls away from its conjunction with Saturn and the Sun where it has been in Scorpio. However, Mercury remains too close to the Sun (combustion) until 12/13/15.
12/15/15 – The Red Planet, Mars now moves into Libra. This is a beneficial change, to also get Mars away from its conjunction with Rahu that has been going on in Virgo for some time. These two planets together contribute to turmoil, warlike actions, chaos, and some of the recent acts of terrorism the world has had to suffer through lately. Librans will feel energized once Mars is in their sign. For a ten day period both Venus and Mars in Libra will really contribute to some fun times for you! It’s also a big relief for the Virgos to have Mars move off their 1st house of self and body.
12/16/15 – SATURN GOES NON-COMBUST. This is a very good thing, as Saturn and the Sun are enemies and Saturn does not like the heat that the Sun brings its way, when they travel too closely together. I feel that this condition (since November 12th) has also contributed to various protests, unrest among workers and general unrest in various segments of the population during this period. Capricorn and Aquarius Rising and Moon sign people will be breathing a sigh of relief, and just able to breathe easier as life will get a bit less problematic now.
12/16/15 – That same day, the Sun moves into fire sign Sagittarius. This is a friend’s sign for the Sun, so it is comfortable here. This is helpful for Leos, the sign ruled by the Sun. This position represents their 5th house of romance, success, education, learning ability and children so any of these areas of life may get enlivened for the Leos now. It’s fine for the “Sag-es” as well, as this bring 9th house energy (good luck and good fortune) to them, plus a feeling of personal power as the Sun takes its one month stroll across this sign.
12/25/15 – MERRY CHRISTMAS! As mentioned above, VENUS moves into Scorpio, at around 2:45 a.m. Mountain Time. This is the 2nd house for Libras, thus it may increase your cash flow and family time. This is the 7th house for Taureans, thus travel is highlighted now as well as feeling close to your romantic partner. Scorpios enjoy an increase in their usual charisma and powers of attraction now.
12/26/15 – Mercury enters Capricorn. This is a mixed bag for the Capricorn Rising and Moon sign people. It can bring that 9th house blessing of a certain amount of good luck, but the 6th house energy that Mercury represents for you can bring some stress, as well. At least you will feel more talkative than usual and communications will be emphasized now, as you employ your problem-solving abilities. For the Virgos and Geminis who are ruled by this planet – the position is nice for the Virgos, as Mercury crosses your 5th house of children, success in relative matters or speculation; it’s easy to learn new things, etc. But for the Geminis, this is your 8th house of vulnerability and transformation so try to keep your chin up and make up your mind to not take things personally! At least it may be a good time for deep meditations.
