May 2022 Vedic Astrology Planet Transits

May 2, 2022

What a month ahead! We have four planets in HIGH dignity (the Sun is exalted in Aries; Venus and Jupiter in Pisces, the former exalted and the latter in its own sign; Saturn in its own sign), but Mercury goes retrograde for three weeks on May 10th, and there’s a Total Lunar Eclipse on May 15th. Details below:

Just to review for a moment: Saturn moved into its own sign of Aquarius on the night of April 28th. but here’s the thing – it moves so slowly, it won’t even have time to get out of Sandhi, “the gap” so it could finally experience its full power, before it goes into retrograde motion! The retrograde period begins on June 4th and that continues until October 22nd. That backward direction carries it back into the other sign it owns, Capricorn, on July 12th and it stays there until January 23, 2023. Yes, that is a very long time! But that’s the slow Saturn pace. It would be better if the midterm elections were to occur while Saturn is in Aquarius, but that is not to be. Capricorn is a Earth sign, very practical and pragmatic, plus hard-working. Aquarius is an air sign, signifying humanitarian concerns. During the Retrograde period, Saturn will cause workers to deal with things that had been previously put in motion when it was in that sign before; things that didn’t get wrapped up. Either sign works fine, if you happen to have a Capricorn Ascendant or Moon sign, as those 1st (self/body) and 2nd (wealth/family/speech) houses produce good results for Capricorns. But for Aquarians, here the ruler of their charts backs up into their 12th house of loss, expenses, solitude/isolation, foreign travel, enlightenment. A good time for them to work on spiritual growth.

May 10th – MERCURY goes Retrograde! This condition lasts until June 3rd, and will bring its usual share of communication snafus and some technical difficulties. This time Mercury is in Earth sign Taurus. That’s a good house for Virgos, one of the signs ruled by Mercury, as Taurus is their BEST house (9th) of good luck, good fortune, destiny, dharma, remedies, higher education and pilgrimage. For Geminis, also ruled by Mercury – well, a good time to work on spiritual development, going within through meditation or retreats, as here Mercury is in their 12th house of loss, expenses, isolation, and ….spiritual enlightenment.

May 13th MERCURY goes combust the Sun now, until May 29th. Yes, on top of being Retrograde, it now feels its qualities a bit “burnt up by the Sun” so what can we expect? Even crabbier communications, and a higher than usual level of verbal misunderstandings. Geminis and Virgos especially, be careful of your speech now!

May 14th – The SUN enters Taurus, joining Mercury there. This brings feelings of personal power to those with Taurus Rising or Moon signs, plus they are already feeling communicative with Mercury in their sign. This is a beneficial planet lineup for them, and the Sun here can bring Taureans some good real estate deals or some may decide to acquire a new vehicle. Friends should enjoy being in your company during this one month transit.

May 15th – Total Lunar Eclipse – The total phase of this Blood Moon total lunar eclipse will be visible from across North and South America, plus parts of Europe and Africa. This eclipse occurs in the Air sign Libra, where the Moon is now conjunct with Ketu, the South Node of the Moon, which is trying to swallow it and put out its light, so eclipses are not auspicious and traditional advice is to not look at eclipses or be outside to be exposed to the luminary whose light is being eclipse. Those with Libra Rising or Moon signs may feel more sensitive for a few days before and after this eclipse. The same can be said for those with Cancer Rising or natal Moons, as the Moon rules their charts. They are already the most sensitive sign of the zodiac (I know some Pisceans may argue that point, as they are also a water sign, but I still say Cancer wins by an edge in the sensitivity category).

May 16th – MARS enters Pisces. Here it joins two of the planets in high dignity: Venus who is Exalted here and Jupiter which is in its own sign in Pisces. Party time for those with Pisces Rising or Moon signs! With Mars now conjunct Venus, they will be feeling sexy, as well as blessed by that benefic Jupiter showering them with gifts. Besides, Mars owns their money house (2nd) AND their 9th house of good luck and good fortune, so what’s not to like with this picture? Oh yeah, Venus there COULD make some Pisceans feel a little too self-indulgent. So avoid the substance abuse, please.

May 23 – VENUS moves into Aries. Venus rules the signs of Taurus and Libra. Librans may attract a partner or feel their current partner more attentive now. Taureans will need to watch out for excessive spending, especially on items of beauty and luxury…the desire to do so may be strong here. Those with Aries Rising and Moon signs will feel attractive to partners and enjoy being in the spotlight now. I mean even more than usual! LOL.

April, 2022 Planet Transits

April 5, 2022

Springtime is here! I’ve always found the month of April to be a good one for new beginnings. As the month began, the Moon entered the sign of Aries, which especially denotes fresh starts and new projects coming our way. That will be amplified once the Sun enters Aries on 4/13/22.

4/7/22 – MARS enters Aquarius, bringing energy and ambition to this typically cerebral, philosophical air sign. Those with Aquarius Rising or Moon signs may feel a fire lit under them, so to speak. Aries Rising and Moon sign folks will enjoy the ruler of their charts now crossing their 11th house of gain, income and fulfillment of desire. Scorpios are also ruled by Mars. They will benefit from this 4th house transit, through connecting with friends. Just beware of vehicle issues now; in other words don’t speed while driving! Mars remains here until 5/16/22.

4/8/22 – MERCURY enters Aries. It will be conjunct Rahu here, which may bring some uneasiness or restlessness to those ruled by Mercury, Geminis and Virgos. At least this transits represents the 11th house for Geminis, so some gains may be had. For Virgos, it is a more problematic transit, representing their 8th house of vulnerability and transformation. There may be some battles to face, which could trigger the vulnerable feelings. Mercury remains in this sign until 4/29.

4/13/22 – A big day in which TWO planets are changing signs. The SUN moves into Aries, its sign of exaltation, which is of benefit to Leos, who are ruled by the Sun, for this sign represents their 9th house of Dharma, good fortune, higher education, remedies and pilgrimage. However it will be conjunct Rahu here which can throw in some unexpected monkey wrenches during this one month transit. Keep sharp and think on your toes, both Aries and Leo Rising and Moon signs.

4/13/22 – JUPITER – this great benefic, which only moves every 12 to 13 months, now goes into its own sign of Pisces. It will be extremely happy and beneficial here, for most Rising signs and the world in general. So many benefits are to be expected for those with Pisces Rising or Moon signs. The only Rising signs who may not benefit as much are those with Aries, Libras and Leos. This is due to: For Aries, Pisces is their 12 house of loss and expenses, plus solitude or isolation. At least the expenses should be on “good things” such a books, courses, education, or children. For Libras, this sign is their 6th house, which is their house of health issues. Jupiter represents the liver and the fat in our bodies, so Libras may have to watch for some issues in those areas, or challenges with children. For Leos, this transit occurs in their 8th house of transformation, vulnerability, battles and disunion. Issues with children may arise.

4/15/22 – MERCURY gets out of combustion with the Sun, bringing improvement in communications, and greater smoothness and tactfulness to interactions with others. Geminis and Virgos especially benefit.

4/24/22 – MERCURY enters Earth sign Taurus. This sign is the 9th (best) house for Virgos, so they will experience a big improvement, after that 8th house transit, with things suddenly turning around and working out for them. Geminis may feel more reclusive, as the ruler of their charts enters their 12th house here. Spending will need to be watched as well. Taureans should fare well with this transit of Mercury in their sign, inspiring greater communication and playfulness.

4/27/22 – VENUS enters Pisces, its sign of exaltation. Here it joins Jupiter, the other big benefic planet with is also in high dignity there. The Sun is still exalted in Aries at this time, so several planets are giving their best influences to life on Earth now. Taurus will greatly enjoy the ruler of their charts transiting their 11th house of gain and income now. Libras are ruled by Venus as well, but here it is crossing their 6th house where it may multiply stresses and worries, while also providing opportunities to be of service.

4/28/22 – SATURN enters Aquarius, its own sign, coming from Capricorn, which it also owns. This is a big deal as Saturn is the slowest moving planet, changing signs only every two and a half years. As you can see, we will now have FOUR planets in high dignity! Saturn represents structure, laws, law enforcement personnel and workers of all types. Thus these areas of society should benefit now from the strength that Saturn has, and its ability to deliver its more positive significations such as duty, responsibility, reliability, persistence, and longevity.

4/30/22 Areas seeing, at least, a partial Solar eclipse: South/West South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Antarctica. This eclipse occurs in the sign of Aries, where Rahu is also transiting. This tricky north node of the Moon is often the culprit who tries to “swallow the light” of either of our solar system’s luminaries. When it’s not Rahu, then it’s other half Ketu is responsible. We are fortunate that the eclipse will not be visible in North America, as these cosmic events are not deemed auspicious in Vedic Astrology.

March, 2022 Vedic Planet Transits: Rahu & Ketu Move!

March 1, 2022

MARCH is a month of big planetary shifts (and April will bring even more). The Nodes of the Moon, are Rahu and Ketu (malefic “planets” with no solid bodies, they represent mathematical points above and below the Moon and are involved whenever eclipses occur). They only change signs every 18 months and will do so on the night of March 16th. This spells relief for the signs of Taurus and Scorpio. Those with Taurus Rising or Moon signs, especially, have experienced the “seizing and letting go” action that Rahu is famous for, during these past 18 months. Such a transit can bring inner upheaval for our earth sign Taurus friends, passion that may come out in strong ways, and even a bit of roughness. Rahu will move backwards into fire sign Aries, and it will be their turn to deal with this planet of unexpected changes! Ketu is the South Node which represents hindrance and degradation but can also bring some psychic experiences or ESP. It moves from Scorpio into Libra, so those with that Rising or Moon sign natally will experience these effects.

3/05/22 – On this night Mercury enters air sign Aquarius. This is a positive change for those with Gemini Rising and Moon signs as this sign is the 9th house for Geminis. They will enjoy the ruler of their chart now being in their BEST house and finally out of their 8th, most challenging house, which represents vulnerability, transformation, battles and disunion. For Virgos, also ruled by Mercury, Aquarius represents their 6th house. This means it’s time to take good care of your health, including mental stresses and worries that may crop up. You may have a chance to be of service to others who need counseling or healthcare services. This is not a long transit, as Mercury will move into Pisces late on 3/23/22.

3/13/22 – Remember to set your clocks forward tonight, as we enter Daylight Savings Time! Yes, we’ll lose an hour of sleep, but there will be more sunlight to enjoy at the end of the work days.

3/15/22 – The SUN enters Pisces for a 30-day journey in this water sign. The Sun owns the 6th house for Pisceans so may bring some worry or stress to our spiritual friends who have Pisces Rising or Moon signs. The Sun owns the sign of Leo, so for those with Leo Rising or Moon signs, this transit can bring a certain degree of vulnerability or uncomfortable changes, as the ruler of their chart crosses their 8th house.

3/16/22 – Rahu and Ketu move – see my description above in the first paragraph.

3/18/22 – MERCURY goes combust the Sun. That brings irritability to any planet who ventures too close to the fiery orb, and that condition can be experienced by those ruled by Mercury, Geminis and Virgos. It will be important to stay calm and maintain equanimity, no matter what events or conditions in the outer world try to provoke or aggravate you!

3/19/22 – JUPITER goes non-combust the Sun. This great benefic planet rules the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces. This improved condition now will helps those with these Rising or Moon signs feel happier and enjoy a sense of burdens becoming less, so that is positive. Jupiter represents happiness, good fortune, wisdom, knowledge and good judgment. Therefore, these qualities should be enhanced overall now, and thus a benefit for all.

3/23/22 – MERCURY enters Pisces. Whereas this is the weakest sign for Mercury, where it is considered debilitated, it does own good houses for those with this Rising or Moon signs. Therefore, they may attract partners, friends, comforts and happiness now. Those with Pisces Rising or Moon signs will feel more chatty and communicative, and wanting to have fun. For the Geminis and Virgos who are ruled by Mercury, well, I’m glad to say this sign represents good houses in both of their charts, so business and career should prosper, and more progress can be made by the Geminis, as well as feeling more active and outgoing now.

3/30/22 – VENUS enters Aquarius. Here Venus is in a friend’s sign. Taurus Rising and Moon sign folks may feel more outgoing as this sign is their 10th house of career, action, name and fame. It is a positive transits for you. For Libras, this sign represents their 5th house, which helps them connect with children, and it is a good time for learning new things, teaching, success in the world, and romance. For the Aquarian Rising and Moon signs, Venus is their Yogakara or best planet. It brings good luck, good fortune, remedies, pilgrimages, friends, supporters, and comforts. Those looking for a new home or new car can have luck finding them now.

February, 2022 Vedic Astrology Planet Transits

February 1, 2022

2/03/22 – MERCURY GOES DIRECT! Ah, what a relief, after another 3 week period of this condition, which interrupts communication devices at times, and creates misunderstandings in interpersonal relationships. We’ve once more made it through this cosmic monkey wrench in the affairs of man. This change will bring special relief to those ruled by Mercury, the Virgo and Gemini Ascendants and Moon sign chart owners. They will again begin to enjoy a sense of progress.

2/12/22 – The SUN moves into Aquarius. This is a better position for Leos, as the Sun rules their charts. Now it will be crossing their 7th house of partners, business, marriage and travel; a nice break after its month’s journey through their 6th house of stress, enemies, rivals and competitors, plus health issues. Aquarians benefit as well, as it is their 7th house ruler, and will be crossing their 1st hour of self, body, personality and direction of their life. It will attract partners to them, and perhaps some business opportunities.

2/18/22 – JUPITER goes combust the Sun. This condition will last until 3/19/22. Those who are ruled by this great benefic, the Sagittarius and Pisces Rising and Moon sign chart owners, may feel a little more easily irritated, restless and tense. Fortunately this period does not last too long.

2/21/22 – SATURN goes non-combust. Saturn has been traveling too close for comfort to the fiery Sun, which is an indication that those ruled by Saturn (Capricorns and Aquarians) could have been feeling more roughness and shortness of temper vs. their usual calmness and practical, objective problem-solving demeanor. This condition has been going on since 1/18/22, so it’s a nice shift now.

2/26/22 – MARS enters Capricorn at 3:19 a.m. MST. Mars is most powerful in this sign, where it is in Exalted status. Those ruled by Mars will benefit. For Scorpios, this is their 3rd house of energy, vitality and self-efforts. Courage will be abundant now, and motivation to get busy with some projects will be flowing. For Aries Rising and Moon signs, this is their 10th house of action, name and fame, career, and so we shall see a spotlight of popularity shining on our Aries friends! They will want to be out and about, “getting it done” rather than sitting around the house. That’s still a challenge as the pandemic drags on, curtailing activities in all of our lives.

2/26/22 – VENUS enters Capricorn at 9:48 p.m. MST. So it’s a double planet move day, and this proximity to each other in the same sign means that Venus and Mars will be in “planetary war” for a few days. They will also be in “the gap” as it takes a few days to get beyond zero degrees of the sign they’ve just entered. So neither will be in shape to give their best until they get some distance into Capricorn, and gain some distance from each other. Once that is achieved, we can expect both planets to bring great things to our Capricorn Rising and Moon sign friends. Venus is their Yogakaraka (best planet) and can bring all manner of good things their way. They will feel affectionate and their charming side can come out more now. Mars can bring real estate opportunity to them, and they will feel more active, creative and ambitious now. There’s been a real “planet stew” or pile up of several planets crossing Capricorn for some time. The cast of players keeps changing, but now Mars and Venus get added to the mix, with Saturn and Mercury already there.

March Preview: The Nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu move on 3/16/22. This will bring relief for our Taurus friends, who have experienced the “seizing and letting go” aspect of Rahu for 18 months now. Scorpios will be glad to be rid of Ketu’s limiting influence, with its qualities of hindrance, degradation, secrecy, etc., making them feel “not seen.” The Nodes always move backwards, so Aries will be the hosting sign for Rahu as of 3/16, and Ketu enters Libra, for the next year and a half. More discussion on these points, in my March blog.

January 2022 – Vedic Star Planet Transits

January 2, 2022

NEW YEAR’S GREETINGS, Friends! Here’s a peek at major planet influences in the year ahead and details for this first month of the year. May 2022 bring everyone the blessings of good health, peace and prosperity.

Looking ahead to the Springtime, we’ll see great benefic JUPITER happily moving into its own sign, Pisces, on 4/13/22. This will be a very beneficial transit, and bring much relief to many. Not to be outdone, SATURN moves into Aquarius on 4/28/22, which is a sign it owns and it is in high dignity there. So both these planets will be able to deliver some of their best results once these transits start. Though Saturn is already content and doing well in its other sign of Capricorn. After Saturn goes retrograde on 6/04/22, it will “moonwalk” backwards into Capricorn on 7/12/22. Other big Spring change news: the Nodes of the Moon, RAHU and KETU move backwards. They will enter Aries (Rahu) and Libra (Ketu) on 3/16/22. This will be a relief for those with Taurus or Scorpio Rising or natal Moon signs, as they’ve been hosting the nodes for the past year and a half. We’ll discuss the impact on Aries and Libra charts when it’s time to create my March blog post.

1/03/22 VENUS will be combust the Sun (traveling too close for comfort) until 1/13/22. This can make this usually benefic planet a little grouchy, especially considering that Venus has also been in Retrograde motion since 12/19/21. Venus gets out of Retrograde on 1/29/22. Those ruled by Venus, Taurus and Libra Ascendants and Moon sign chart owners, will experience more progress after that date, and find situations that have been sluggish or even at a standstill can move forward once more. Even prior to that, they will feel much better once Venus is out of combustion on 1/13/22.

1/14/22 The SUN moves into Capricorn. This is not the happiest placement for the Sun, as it’s in an enemy’s sign here. For Leos, who are ruled by the Sun, this is their 6th house of enemies, rivals, competitors, worries, stress, delays and health issues. You get the picture….not a fine time for our Leo friends. This is the time of year in which it’s easier for them to experience delays and obstacles, and there is the need to be mindful of their health. For Capricorn Rising and Moon chart owners, Leo owns their 8th house of vulnerability, transformation, battles and disunion, so may bring a range of these type of situations to deal with, during this one month transit.

1/14/22 MERCURY goes RETROGRADE. Yes, the year starts out with the appearance of this often challenging phenomenon coming up rather quickly, which can lead to crossed wires of communication, affecting also any communication equipment and delays especially for those with Virgo and Gemini Rising or Moon signs. It lasts until 2/03/22.

1/16/22 MARS moves into Sagittarius, a friend’s sign. This planet will energize our Sag friends and brings some success, as their 5th house ruler, but also there can be moments of desiring solitude or spiritual experiences, as it also rules their 12th house. Scorpio Rising and Moon sign chart owners benefit by the transit of their chart ruler through their 2nd house of family, wealth and communication. Aries chart owners also benefit, as here Mars will be moving through their 9th house of good luck, good fortune, and higher education, plus remedies and pilgrimage. Enjoy!

1/17/22 MERCURY becomes combust the Sun, which will dampen communications. Let us be mindful of the need for tactfulness and diplomacy, which Mercury normally provides. During this period, which lasts until 1/28/22, Geminis and Virgos will feel the pressure the most, especially with the ruler of their charts also being in Retrograde status during this time.

1/18/22 SATURN becomes combust the Sun, i.e. traveling too close for comfort. This condition continues until 2/21/22. During this time, Capricorns and Aquarians who are ruled by this planet, will experience some irritations and annoying snags in plans. Remember to practice patience!

December, 2021 Vedic Planet Transits

December 2, 2021

12/04/21 – TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE in the sign of Scorpio (in Vedic Astrology). A total solar eclipse sweeps across Antarctica on December 4, 2021. The instant of greatest eclipse takes place at 07:33 UTC, which is 1:33 a.m. on the morning of December 4 for us in North America. So North Americans will not see the eclipse. People located at the southernmost tips of South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand will experience the partial phases. The path of the moon’s umbral shadow begins in the Southern Ocean about 300 miles (500 km) southeast of the Falkland Islands, crosses the Antarctic continent, and ends at sunset in the Southern Ocean. A partial eclipse will be seen within the much broader path of the moon’s penumbral shadow, which includes the Southern Ocean, southern Africa and the southeastern corner of Australia and Tasmania. Eclipses are inauspicious in Vedic Astrology, so we are fortunate that it will not be visible in North America. Those with Leo Rising or Moon signs may feel not as buoyant as usual when the ruler of their chart is eclipsed by malefic South node of the Moon, Ketu.

12/04/21 – MARS moves into Scorpio, its own sign at approximately 5:27 p.m. MST. This is a positive change for those with Scorpio Ascendants or Moon signs, and provides more energy and strength. Mars will help them experience more personal power, coming on the heels of the total solar eclipse described above, that happens earlier that morning in their sign. Also, with this shift, Mars gets out of its 12th house of loss, expenses, isolation and seclusion, so our Scorpio friends will begin feeling more sociable.

12/08/21 – VENUS enters Capricorn, a friend’s sign. What a blessing for those with Capricorn Rising or Moon signs, as Venus is their Yogakaraka, or best planet, bringing many types of gifts. For the signs ruled by Venus, Taurus and Libra, it will be a positive transit. Taureans get the chance to travel or have “pilgrimages” plus overall good luck, good fortune, and access to remedies. For Librans, they will enjoy the comforts and pleasures of home and time with friends. Their creativity may be directed to beautifying their home now.

12/09/21 – MERCURY enters Sagittarius, bringing relief to those with Gemini Rising or Moon signs, for it finally gets out of their 6th house where it has been multiplying their stress, anxiety and worries. Virgo is also ruled by Mercury and this placement is positive for them, to enjoy friendships and the home environment, and is good for their confidence, overall. Those with Sagittarius Rising or Moon signs may enjoy greater career success, attention from partners, and will feel very expressive now as their communication mood amps up now.

12/15/21 – The SUN moves into Sagittarius, a friend’s sign. This is a good placement for Leos, ruled by the Sun, for it represents their 5th house of success, learning ability, education, children and romance. Any of these areas could become a nice focus now for Leos. It’s also great for the Sagittarius Rising and Moon sign folks, as the Sun rules their 9th house of good luck and good fortune, and can bring an uplifting wave of power, energy and the ability to be the right place at the right time.

12/19/21 – VENUS GOES RETROGRADE. This appearance of going backwards actually makes a benefit planet like Venus stronger. Those ruled by Venus, the signs of Taurus and Libra, may experience some delays, blocks and slow progress until Venus goes Direct motion on 1/29/22. While it is Retrograde, it will back up into the previous sign of Sagittarius, on 12/29/21. So Sagittarians get another blast of this benefic planet’s energy, feeling more affectionate and creative.

12/24/21 – MERCURY gets out of combustion with the Sun, giving an easier flow of conversation and communication. It’s especially nice for Virgos and Geminis who are ruled by Mercury, and there should be less stress for them now.

12/28/21 – Mercury enters Capricorn, a friend’s sign. Virgos benefit by having the ruler of their charts now crossing their 5th house of success, education and children. However, it is a more challenging transit for Geminis, as the ruler of their charts will be transiting their 8th house of vulnerability, transformation, battles and disunion, so it may be a time in which they don’t feel as grounded as they would like, and have to focus on taking care of themselves. Capricorns benefit from the good fortune Mercury brings as their 9th house ruler, however it also rules their 6th house so it may also bring some stress.

12/29/21 – VENUS moves into Sagittarius. See description above.

November 2021 Vedic Astrology Planet Transits

November 1, 2021

November is the month of Thanksgiving, and we shall see what planet changes will be a cause for giving thanks.

11/01/21- MERCURY enters Libra this evening. That is a friend’s house for this planet of communication, commerce, diplomacy and friendship. It bodes well for both signs that it rules, Gemini and Virgo, as this sign represents positive houses for each. Libras can experience good fortune, as well as spiritual inclinations as Mercury rules their 9th and 12th houses.

11/05/21 – Mercury goes combust the Sun. This condition lasts until 12/24/21. It causes a planet to become irritable, and not able to live up to its full potential, we might say. This is not a helpful influence for communication in general, and especially for Gemini and Virgo Rising and Moon signs folks, as Mercury rules their charts.

11/16/21 – The SUN moves into Scorpio, a friend’s sign. This influence brings power and strength to those with Scorpio Rising and Moon signs. For Leos, who are ruled by the Sun, this placement is in their 4th house of home, friends, self confidence, and should bring comforts and a sense of being at ease.

11/19/21 Partial LUNAR eclipse – Regions seeing, at least, some parts of the eclipse: Much of Europe, Much of Asia, Australia, North/West Africa, North America, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic. This eclipse occurs in the sign of Taurus, where the MOON is exalted, because at this time it will be conjunct with Rahu, the malefic North Node of the Moon, which is also exalted there. Passions may run high in those with Taurus Rising and Moon signs. Be careful what you wish for… and try to maintain some patience and equilibrium today.

11/20/21 – Here’s the day of Gratitude that I mentioned above! JUPITER, the great benefic will get relief now, moving out of its sign of Debilitation and out of its conjunction with Saturn, in Capricorn. Those who will feel better nearly immediately (once it has moved far enough into Aquarius) include those with Gemini Ascendants and Moon signs, for the long haul transit through their 8th house of transformation, vulnerability, battles and disunion, has not been an easy one. Sagittarians are ruled by Jupiter and will experience greater vitality and energy as it enters their 3rd house, along with greater creativity and some regional journeys, plus the possibility of feeling closer to siblings. Pisces Rising and Moon signs are also ruled by Jupiter, but Aquarius is their 12th house so they may opt for greater seclusion and will need to watch out for losses and expenses. Those with Aquarius Rising or Moon signs now benefit financially to have their 2nd and 11th ruler Jupiter transit their sign. Capricorns will need to watch their spending, as this change means that the ruler of their 12th house of loss, will now be crossing their house of income, family and communications.

11/20/21 – MERCURY now enters Scorpio. This may bring some gain to those with Scorpio Rising and Moon signs, but also some vulnerability, since Mercury rules both their 11th and 8th houses. This 3rd house transit for Virgos is fine, boosting their energy and vitality. It is not as positive for Geminis, as it will be crossing their 6th house of health issues, and worry, enemies, rivals and competitors now. Mercury remains in this sign until 12/09/21.

11/28/21 – MARS gets out of combustion with the Sun. This will be a nice relief for both Aries and Scorpio Rising and Moon signs. Now actions can be a bit cleaner, freer from irritation, anger and impatience.

October, 2021 Vedic Astrology Planet Transits

October 5, 2021

October – a month of Transformation. Blockages will be lifting, step by step, and much progress can be experienced after the 18th. It’s a real bada bing badda bam bada boom month of improvement as Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury each get out of Retrograde on 10/10, 10/17 and 10/18, respectively. Saturn and Jupiter have been Retrograde for quite some time, so there should be a collective sigh of relief soon.

10/01 – Mercury retrogrades back into Virgo, its own sign. So that part is good, the problem is just the tendency for this Retrograde motion to cause mix ups, misunderstandings and meltdowns when it comes to communications and various equipment related to same. All we can do is keep trying “Not to take it personally.” At least this sign represents good houses for both signs ruled by Mercury, Gemini and Virgo.

10/01 VENUS enters Scorpio. This is a beneficial placement for those with Scorpio Rising and Moon signs, for it brings partnership, foreign travel possibilities and positive spiritual experiences. For Libras, ruled by Venus, this transit is helpful for finances and closeness to family members. For Taureans, also ruled by Venus, This placement enlivens their relationship connects and may bring travel, and is good for business.

10/03 – Mercury begins traveling too close to the Sun for comfort. This state is called being Combust the Sun, so some of Mercury’s qualities can be harmed…this includes communication, tactfulness and diplomacy, so let’s all think before we speak! This combustion period lasts until 10/15.

10/10 – SATURN GOES DIRECT! It will still remain in Capricorn, its own sign, where it is strong, until 4/28/22 – well, it IS our slowest moving planet! This placement continues to be of value to those with Capricorn Ascendants or Moon signs, in a number of ways, including financially. Things will be much better, now that its begins to move forward. The other sign ruled by Saturn, is Aquarius. They will still be dealing with losses, expenses and some feelings of isolation, as this placement is their 12th house.

10/17 – The SUN enters Libra, sign of peace, harmony and balance. This is beneficial for those with Libra Rising or Moon signs, as it brings income and gain to them, ruling their 11th house. For Leos, ruled by the Sun, this is their 3rd house of energy, vitality and projects. They will have many areas of interest and become more focused on accomplishments they can achieve on their own.

10/17 – JUPITER GOES DIRECT! It will remain in Capricorn where it had recently retrograded back into, until 11/20 when it again moves forward into Aquarius. Those with either Sagittarius or Pisces Rising Signs or Moon signs will enjoy a newfound sense of progress, unimpeded now with many of the recent obstacles. Both should experience a greater flow in their finances.

10/18 – MERCURY GOES DIRECT! All those with Gemini or Virgo Rising or Moon signs will feel much better now, as the ruler of their charts feels more progress and a removal of obstacles and delays. Communication across the board for everyone, should improve now.

10/21 – MARS enters Libra. Mars rules both Aries and Scorpio. Those with Aries Rising or Moon signs will have better relationship progress, including with business partners. Travel is possible for them now, as well. Scorpios may have to contend with some losses and expenses now, and a tendency to withdraw and crave more solitude, or the converse, feel more isolated than they want to be.

10/30 – VENUS enters Sagittarius, bringing affection, creativity, gain and income, but also some stress as it rules their 6th as well as their 11th house. Librans now are now more drawn to the arts, music or creative projects; those with Taurus Rising or Moon signs will go through some changes and perhaps feel vulnerable (but still sexy!) as this placement represents their 8th house of Transformation and Vulnerability. They may have heightened intuitive awareness now.

September Planet Transits

September 3, 2021

September, 2021 has arrived! There are some big planet changes to describe here, which makes this a significant month, astrologically.

9/05/21 – It’s a three-planet move today. The Moon enters Leo; Venus enters its own sign of Libra, so it will be quite happy, especially to be getting out of its sign of debilitation; Mars moves into Virgo.

The Moon changes signs every 2.5 days, so there’s not enough time here to go into what each change means. In Leo the Moon will be in a friend’s sign. Cancer Rising and natal Moon sign chart owners will benefit.

Venus, and those ruled by it – Taurus and Libra Rising and Moon sign folks – will enjoy the strength and balance Venus now experiences, and how that reflects in their own lives and every day experiences. A focus on beauty, luxury, the Arts will now manifest and bring happiness, if these blessings are embraced. Enjoy, Venus-ruled friends!

Mars, and its effect on those with Virgo Ascendants or natal Moon signs – there can be feelings of impatience, irritability or just getting easily aggravated. These tendencies are magnified to a degree, due to the aspect on Virgo and Mars when it arrives there, from malefic Rahu. Wishing our Virgo friends the inner peace and calm that meditative practices may provide, to get through this transit. With Mars ruling your 8th house of Transformation, Vulnerability, Battles and Disunion, some of those qualities may overwhelm your normal practical logic and good sense. Mars remains in this Earth sign until October 21.

For Aries Ascendants and Moon sign people, this transit represents their 6th house of health issues, worry, stress and obstacles. It will be hard for Aries natives to “chill out” and take it one day at a time due to their nature to charge ahead, to “get it done,” but that’s just what they need to do right now. For Scorpios, the other sign ruled by Mars, Virgo is their 11th house of gain, income and fulfillment of desire, so this transit can bring some nice benefits now.

9/14/21 – JUPITER – the big benefic planet, has been in retrograde movement while in Air sign Aquarius for some time. Today, that “backwards dance” causes it to return to Earth sign Capricorn where it will remain until November 20. While in Capricorn, its sign of debilitation, scenarios which had been set in motion during its previous sojourn there may finally come to fruition, or some situations that seemed settled may rear up again to be dealt with. It will be conjunct Saturn here, which helps give some “cancellation of debilitation” because Saturn is so strong in its own sign. Jupiter here brings some spiritual influence to Capricorns (its their 12th house ruler), as well as some good luck and good fortune.

9/16/21 – The Sun enters Virgo. Those with Leo Rising or natal Moon signs are ruled by the Sun. As it enters their 2nd house, this transit enlivens their connections to family, is helpful financially and conducive to greater communication. For Virgos, the Sun represents their 12th house ruler. As it crosses their 1st house of self, body and direction of their lives, this can be helpful for them to focus on inward, spiritual experiences. The paradox is that the Sun can also bring a sense of leadership to them for this 30 day transit. While it’s a good time to go within, it’s important be careful to avoid any unnecessary expenses which this transit may tend to bring.

9/21/21 – Mercury enters Libra, a friend’s sign today. This is a comfortable energy for Mercury, and supportive of more harmonious communication. Both signs ruled by Mercury, Gemini and Virgo, benefit, as the house that Libra represents for each, is positive. For Geminis it is their 5th house of children, learning, success and inclinations of the mind. For Virgos it is their 2nd house of family, wealth and speech.

9/26/21 – MERCURY goes RETROGRADE – until 10/10/21. This is not a great time to sign any contracts or start something new. During this time things may appear to be “going backwards” or feelings of being misunderstood or miscommunications may occur.  Anything that deals with communication may be affected, from my experience. Once again, it’s a time to employ diplomacy, tactfulness and mindfulness in our speech. Geminis are advised to resort to their clever sense of humor to make it through those big waves. Virgos, also ruled by Mercury, should employ their practical logic and skills of deduction and not jump to conclusions.

August 2021 Planet Transits

August 2, 2021

Is everyone ready for August? It’s here! With all the planet changes fit to print, as we consider the transit movements happening this month.

8/08/21 – Mercury enters Leo. This planet of communication, curiosity and friendliness can help make our Leo friends a bit more chatty. It’s also helpful financially to those with Leo Rising or Moon signs. Mercury rules the signs of Gemini and Virgo. Leo is the 3rd house for Geminis, so they can expect to be busy with projects now, including some writing. For Virgos, Leo is their 12th house, so there may be some losses, expenditures, or a feeling to be a little withdrawn and inward now, craving some solitude. This transit lasts until 8/25.

8/11/21 – Venus moves into Virgo. and remains there until 9/5/21. This benefic planet is debilitated or at its weakest in the sign of Virgo but still brings many benefits to those with Virgo Ascendants or Moon signs, for it rules their 2nd house of wealth and 9th house of good luck and good fortune, bringing those significations to Virgo’s front burners. The signs of Libra and Taurus are ruled by Venus. Taureans will benefit from this 5th house transit for them, as they should enjoy success, enhanced interest in learning and/or closeness to children. For Libras, this is a 12th house transit, so not as favorable, as it increases losses and expenses.

8/15/21 – Mercury gets out of combustion (traveling too close to the Sun) which status it has been in since 7/19. Communication in general should be more flowing now, in general, with fewer chances of being misunderstood. Virgo and Gemini Ascendants and Moon chart folks should feel more at ease now.

8/16/21 – The SUN enters Leo for its one month transit in this Fire sign, which it owns. Leos should feel very empowered during this period, with the natural leadership abilities shining. It’s important for Leo Rising and Moon signs to take care not to get overheated, either physically or in temperament at this time.

8/17/21 – MARS becomes combust the Sun, as its orbit brings it a little too close to the fiery orb of the Sun for comfort. Those ruled by Mars are Aries and Scorpio. They may feel a bit more impatient, restless and quarrelsome during this period, which lasts until 11/28. Yes, that IS a long period for Mars-ruled people to need to watch their temper, and tendency to do things too hastily.

8/22/21 – FULL MOON in Aquarius. The Moon is at its maximum point of fullness right at 6:00 a.m. Mountain time, in the sign of Aquarius. In this progressive sign of the humanitarian, may the full moon usher in energies of progress for society as a whole. For the Cancer Rising and Moon signs, which are ruled by the Moon, this sign represents their 8th house of transformation and vulnerability, as well as sexuality. Changes may bring some feelings of insecurity to Cancerians. However, it will be conjunct with benefic Jupiter here, so this conjunction brings protection and intuition.

8/25/21 – MERCURY will move into its own sign of Virgo at 23:48 p.m. MDT, so in the wee hours of 8/26 for those living east of here. It remains in this sign until 9/21. This is a very beneficial transit for both the Geminis and Virgos, and brings a great deal of intellectual clarity. As Virgo’s 10th house ruler it also can bring good career progress and personal power right now. For Geminis this is a 4th house placement, so their home life and friends will be highlighted, and self confidence should be healthy in this period.
