April Planet Transits: Mercury Retrograde Until 4/15/18

April 1, 2018

3/31/18 Brings us a Blue Moon, in Virgo. 

What a nice way to segue into April. The energies of Moon in Virgo are calming, bringing more logic and deductive skills out in the collective mind. Virgos get to enjoy their 11th house ruler, bringing income and gain their way, and fulfillment of desire.

SATURN is such a slow moving planet, that it’s been some time since I’ve written about its travels and how that affects the signs it rules, Capricorn and Aquarius, so it seems only fair to focus on that some.  Since 10/26/17 Saturn has been crossing the sign of Sagittarius. This is the 12th house for those with Capricorn Rising or Moon charts.  This house is all about loss, expenses, isolation or seclusion. Caps do need to watch their spending now, and do their best to push themselves out into the crowd to mingle with fellow humans, to avoid feeling the worst impacts of loneliness, which this transit can bring.  Going on spiritual retreats is advised now, as that is an excellent way to utilize the potential for Enlightenment that a 12th house transit also provides.

For Aquarians, Saturn, the lord of their chart, is traveling through their 11th house, so it can bring income and gain their way, with less effort than previously, so it is a positive experience, for the most part.

SAGITTARIUS is playing host to Saturn. That can bring the ability to focus and work hard for those with this Rising or Moon sign.  Life may seem somewhat hectic, too, with all the responsibilities that Saturn brings. Since MARS has also been transitting this fire sign since March 7th, and Mars and Saturn are enemies, there may be feelings of being pushed in one direction and pulled in the opposite direction. Definitely a “hurry up, and then wait” sensation. Mars will remain in this sign until May 2nd, so the internal angst can ease up some then.

4/08/18 – Mercury gets out of combustion with the Sun. This improves communications and tactful interactions overall, and brings relief to those with either Gemini or Virgo Rising or Moon signs, which are ruled by Mercury.

4/13/18 – The SUN enters Aries, where it experiences Exalted dignity.  The Leos, who are ruled by the Sun, will enjoy this exalted status, especially as Aries represents their 9th house of good luck, good fortune, remedies, pilgrimage and Natural Law.  For those with Aries Ascendants or Moon sign people, the Sun rules their 5th house of success, romance, and educations, highlighting these qualities in their lives now.

4/15/18 – MERCURY GOES DIRECT.  As usual, this brings relief to interpersonal communications. Did you notice any snags with technical equipment or anything related to correspondence during this time?  Virgos and Geminis can experience forward movement now, in their projects and career.

4/17/18 – SATURN goes retrograde. Its malefic qualities get stronger when it is in retrograde status. This can bring some feelings of depression or being down to those with Sagittarius Rising or especially with that Moon sign, as they are in Sadhe Sati at this time, and have to deal with obstacles, delays and hard work, during this cycle anyway. Now add the retrograde condition…so try to nurture and take care of yourselves at this time! It will stay retrograde until 9/06/18.

4/19/18 – VENUS enters Taurus, its own sign, where it is happy and powerful. This brings more comforts and luxuries to those with Taurus Rising or Moons, including the enjoyment of the arts, beauty or music. For Libras, also ruled by Venus, this is an 8th house transit…which is all about Transformation, and can also bring them some vulnerability. Venus remains here until May 14th.

Remember that for any difficult transit or dasha period (personal planetary cycle) there are ancient Vedic remedies known as Yagyas, which I can describe to you, to alleviate some layers of obstacles. These are most beneficial for “engineering the karma” away from the owner of the chart.

The Vedic Planets of February, 2018

February 1, 2018

February arrives, with the “bang” of that total lunar eclipse on January 31st, opening the door.

The lunar eclipse occurred in Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. Malefic Rahu, north node of the Moon, briefly “swallowed” this luminary that rules the night sky, putting out its light in a symbolic gesture.  Cancerians especially (those with Cancer Ascendants or Moon signs) would have felt this especially strong energy. But as we know, the darkness can never permanently drown out the Light, so once again that bright “super moon” is shining proudly in the night sky.  Many people could feel somewhat emotionally disoriented and out of balance, even the normally stable and solid type of personalities. Total eclipses of the Moon or Sun can have the after-effects of energetically triggering earth changes, governmental upsets, civil unrest, military strife, and the like.

2/05/2018 – VENUS enters air sign Aquarius.  Those with this very cerebral Rising sign or Moon sign may warm up and show some affection now. Venus is the BEST planet for both Capricorns and Aquarians, due to the houses in their charts that it respectively rules.  The “planet pile up” which has been going on in Capricorn for some time, is now beginning to shift into Aquarius, starting with Venus.  You may as well consider Venus your “lucky star,” if you have this Ascendant or Moon sign, since it rules your 9th house of good luck, good fortune, destiny, dharma and natural law, plus remedies and pilgrimages. The doors to any of these arenas can open wide for you now. That is why wearing a diamond is good for you, the astrological stone that represents Venus.

2/12/2018 – The SUN joins Venus in Aquarius today.  For those with Leo Rising or Moon signs, this is a time when the ruler of their chart enters their 7th house of partners, travel and business. Deepening a relationship could be on your mind if Leo is your sign in Vedic Astrology.  Vice versa for the Aquarians; it will be their 7th ruler now crossing their first house, bringing partners to them.  What with Venus already there, seems like there will be no escaping SOME kind of interaction with others, for all those Aquarians who normally prefer their own space or spiritual solitude. I’ve known a few like that.

2/14/2018 – MERCURY enters Aquarius. What did I tell you? One more planet playmate for Venus and Sun, already traveling through this fixed air sign. The party expands for the Aquarians. Mercury here can make them feel more talkative and friendly.  For Virgos, ruled by Mercury, this is their 6th house. There may be some obstacles or stress to push through. It could be anxiety over taxes, delays of something they’d counted on, etc.  Since Mercury also rules the Virgo 10th house of career, if they happen to have a counseling or medical career, this can at least enhance their counseling or problem-solving business or bring in more clients. For Geminis, the other sign ruled by Mercury, this is a better placement.  It is their 9th house, which brings better luck and more ease and blessings in life. Happy Valentine’s Day!

2/15/2018 – Partial Solar Eclipse. This is visible only from Antarctica and southern South America.  It occurs in the sign of Aquarius, which now has Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury transiting there.  This creates a VERY outgoing mixture for the Aquarians, though any eclipse can bring a little bump in the road. Eclipses are NOT auspicious, but most of that energy goes to the areas on Earth where they are visible.

2/19/2018 – VENUS is finally non-combust the Sun.  It had been traveling too close to this fiery orb since January 1st, causing some irritation in the lives of the Taurus and Libra Rising and Moon sign folks. Now they can rejoice with more smooth sailing and their normal love of life and all things beautiful and sensual.

December 2017 Vedic Astrology Planets – by Mary Stevenson

December 2, 2017

December, 2017 – It’s nearly the end of another year. This one has brought some momentous changes and seems to have flown by. Let’s see what the planets hold for us, this last month of the year.

Dec. 3 – MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE! This condition will last until Dec. 22, so how nice to have it over with before the holidays are fully here.  Get ready for three weeks of communication snarls and mishaps, which also applies to any equipment or devices that deal with communication.  Mercury rules the signs of Gemini and Virgo, so those with these Ascendants or Moon signs will feel this appearance of Mercury’s “backwards movement” the most.  Mercury is currently in Sagittarius, traveling with its friend Saturn, but they did have a brief “planetary war” last week, which was uncomfortable for many, so we are glad that is over.

Dec. 3 – MOON will be totally full in its sign of exaltation, Taurus.  The intensity of this full moon is being felt already, by many I know.  Taureans and Cancerians benefit from it.  The moon rules “mind and emotions” in the Vedic system, so having it both full AND exalted, is rather powerful. But the pull on human emotions can feel overwhelming now, coupled with the usual stress and anxieties of the holiday time of year. Be gentle with yourselves, and others.

Dec. 4 – SATURN combust the Sun. This brings more irritability than usual for those with Capricorn and Aquarius Ascendants or Moon signs. Watch for getting more easily riled up than is your normal nature.  Saturn also represents working people, service-oriented groups like the police force, agriculture, and oil.  There may be disruptions and unrest in any of these areas now. This condition will last until Jan. 7th.

Dec. 7 – MERCURY combust the Sun. This cycle in which a planet travels too close to the Sun (which makes a planet grouchy, angry, more reactive than normal) occurs more frequently for Mercury than any other planet, because it habitually travels closer to the Sun than the rest of the planets.  You may feel the subtle effects of just being more sensitive or reactive to things you normally would let roll off your back.  It can be helpful to employ meditative techniques to maintain your equilibrium and peace of mind during these cycles. This cycle lasts until Dec. 18.

Dec. 10 – MERCURY moves into Scorpio.  Here those with Scorpio Rising or Moon signs will find communication mattering more than their somewhat secretive natures may be used to.  But Mercury will be in both a retrograde AND combust status, so all of us will need to strive to be as diplomatic as possible in our speech as well as any written correspondence.  Gains can come to Scorpios now through commerce. Virgos will have energy to expend on various projects. Geminis (also ruled by Mercury) may not feel as chipper, since this is their 6th house of worry, stress and physical health concerns. Mercury stays here until Jan. 6, 2018.

Dec. 15 – The SUN moves into Sagittarius, a friend’s sign.  Leos (ruled by the Sun) will enjoy a month of heightened learning abilities, success in worldly projects or speculative matters. They will feel more playful and romantic as well, or enjoy spending time with children.  Sagittarians get an energy boost from the Sun’s power and experience the “good luck and good fortune” the Sun brings, as their 9th house ruler.

Dec. 20 – VENUS enters Sagittarius. Here it joins the Sun and Saturn, bringing a swirl of energies to those with this fire sign Rising or Moon sign. Interestingly, I just looked at someone’s chart with these same three planets in her first house of self, body and personality, so that is a three-way natal return for her!  Natal returns can be a bit intense. We get the opportunity to really deal with whatever issues our soul brought in to face this lifetime.  Sun and Saturn are enemies, so that part is not so comfortable. Venus is at least friends with Saturn. It can help spice up the planet party for our Sag friends.

Dec. 22 – MERCURY goes Direct motion, as mentioned above. It gets out of combustion Dec. 18, so it altogether will be feeling better and those with this planetary ruler (Virgos and Geminis) will experience life and projects moving forward at a good pace, once more. Communication in general becomes easier for everyone.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANUKKAH, AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!  This is a perfect time to give a holiday gift of one of my Vedic Astrology readings to a dear one.  Wishing the blessings of the planets to you, from the Sunshine Corner, in Boulder, CO.  Tel. 720-448-3742 (cell); or 928-284-4060 (home).  Thank you for your referrals.

I offer many services such as: natal chart readings, yearly updates, couples compatibility or astrocartography (location) readings.  If you would like to book an appointment for yourself, or as a gift for a family member or dear one especially as the holiday season nears, please call me to schedule one of my 90 minute sessions.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, healingevents@yahoo.com. vedicstarcharts.com
