December 2018 Planet Blog

December 4, 2018

How have you all been surviving this latest bout of Mercury Retrograde? Well, hang on just a bit longer, for Mercury will go Direct motion at 2:19 p.m. Mountain time on Thursday, December 6 – and not a moment too soon, eh?

12/02/18 – Mercury becomes non-combust. So it will be now be traveling far enough away from the Sun not to have its qualities burnt to a crisp. This further improves communications, just as Mercury is getting out of Retrograde on 12/06/18. This will be a big forward boost of progress to greater clarity and understanding for all.  As usual, those whose Rising signs or Moon signs are ruled by Mercury (Gemini and Virgo) stand to benefit the most.

12/09/18 – JUPITER becomes non-combust the Sun. Thus this great benefic’s power to do good now increases. Those with Sagittarius or Pisces Rising or Moon signs will greatly benefit, as will the Scorpios, since Jupiter has been traveling through this friend’s sign for some time. The damper that the combustion created on good luck and good fortune in general since 11/11/18 now lifts. Enjoy!

12/15/18 – The Sun enters Sagittarius. This one month transit is beneficial for Leos, who are ruled by the Sun, as this is a friend’s sign and their 5th house of success, education, children, and love affairs for the Leos. Sags benefit, too, as the Sun rules their 9th house of good fortune and brings many good qualities to them. Of course it will be traveling here with its enemy Saturn, which has been causing a lot of snags, delays and obstacles for my Sagittarius Rising or Moon chart friends since 10/26/17.  Having both Sun and Saturn here will be a type of “push/pull” energy for them, with Saturn wanting things to move slowly, but the Sun wants to put Sags into the leadership driver’s seat now. This can cause internal conflicts at time, and literal headaches unless you meditate or employ stress reduction techniques.

12/16/18 – Saturn goes combust the Sun. And here we were just speaking of Saturn! Not only is it now conjunct its enemy, the Sun, but they will be traveling in close enough proximity for Saturn to feel chafed and irritable. This is not great news for the Capricorns and Aquarians, ruled by this hermit planet. It’s already been a challenging transit for Capricorns with Saturn traveling through their 12th house of loss and expenses (gulp), and considering it ALSO rules their second house of wealth as well as their first house of self, body and personality, this just adds to the discomfort, as well as impacting their material fortunes. Sorry about that, Cap friends, but as the old saying goes, “You are no stranger to misfortune.” Your determination, strength and perseverance will get you through these times.

12/22/18 – Full Moon in Gemini. The height of its fullness takes place right at 11:00 a.m. Mountain time. The effects are mixed for the Cancerians, who are ruled by the Moon for this is their 12th house of loss and expense, seclusion or isolation. The energy can be harnessed in a positive manner, of course, by going on meditation retreats, enjoying deep meditations or spiritual experiences, foreign travels and bed pleasures.  For Geminis, it should bring prosperity your way, so enjoy.

12/23/18 – MARS moves into Pisces. The signs ruled by Mars are affected in the following ways: It’s beneficial for Scorpios, as this is their 5th house of success. For those with Aries Ascendant or Moon signs, this is the 12th house of loss and expense. It would be good for foreign travel or working on Enlightenment but otherwise, you could feel isolated or prefer solitude now.

12/31/18 – Mercury enters Sagittarius. Now we’ll have three planets in this fire sign. Mercury joins the Sun and Saturn there. Sag people will be juggling both a sense of wanting to be verbal, have fun, talk with friends and be expressive (Mercury) with a more serious, responsibility-driven energy provided by Saturn. And the Sun there will help them to keep taking charge and making strides in their usual creative way.

November, 2018 Vedic Astrology Blog – Mercury Retrograde on Nov. 16

November 4, 2018

Wishing you the best of the planetary energies as we move into another month and the planets again play “musical signs” as they move from one position to another. Let’s see what the month of November holds for you. As usual, I’m available and delighted to provide more specific insights if you book individual readings with me.

11/05/18 – MARS moves from Capricorn which is its exaltation sign, into Aquarius. The biggest blessing of this move is that Mars gets away from the conjunction its had with malefic Ketu, south node of the Moon, and a real sticky, tricky player in the pantheon of planets.  This will be a big help to just about everybody!  When Mars is that strong (exaltation) it can be overpowering and just a little “too full of himself” – sure, he stands for energy, courage, drive, competition, initiative, but also on the other side of the coin, anger, irritation, impatience and temper. Ketu would have played a role in bringing out his worst qualities. Things can begin to cool off for Capricorn Rising Sign and Moon sign people, and the world as a whole. Mars represents the principle of war, after all.  Amazing, isn’t it, that this planet shift occurs the night before the election?  Cooler heads should prevail, and voters could get the credit, but Mars moving into a place where it can cool off some, is the planetary reason here.

11/11/18 – JUPITER combust the Sun.  This great benefic, representing good fortune, wisdom, happiness,  recently (last month) began its one year transit through Scorpio, a friend’s sign. As it travels a little too close to the Sun, it’s qualities can feel impinged upon a bit, affecting those with Sagittarius and Pisces Ascendants and Moon signs the most. It moves beyond this combust condition on 12/09/18.

11/16/18 – A big day with several planet changes:

VENUS goes direct motion. This is helpful to the Libras and Taureans, to begin to feel progress again, after the retrograde period which began 10/05/18.

Sun enters Scorpio, so it’s getting out of its debilitation status that it was in for a month in Libra. This is helpful for Leos, the sign ruled by the Sun, and brings more energy to Scorpios, along with an inclination to play some leadership role, which is great, as long as you don’t let the ego get too big. Sun energy can do that! But, for sure, enjoy that extra vitality now. Sun also stands for government, so it does seem like this one month transit can bring more balance to those holding ruling positions at various levels of government.

MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE today. Yes, here we go again. Mercury rules commerce, so deals you are involved with may find sudden snags popping up. Mercury rules communication, thus interpersonal misunderstandings can be the norm now, as well as glitches in communication equipment. Mercury rules friendship, so watch for getting too impatient with your friends, and don’t let inadvertent misunderstandings damage long standing positive connections. It’s a time for all to have more patience and really focus on being tactful, because Mercury does also rule diplomacy and tactfulness, so while it’s in retrograde motion, those qualities may be harder to come by naturally. This period lasts until 12/06/18. As usual, those with Gemini or Virgo Rising or Moon signs, get impacted to the greatest degree.

11/21/18 – Mercury goes Combust the Sun, adding to the quicker trigger conversations, etc. described in the above Mercury retrograde paragraph. If you were already concerned about how those family Thanksgiving conversations were going to go, yeah. It will be even more challenging than usual with the above afflictions on Mercury! It will come out of combustion on 12/02/18.

11/22/18 – Now I don’t want to rain on your Thanksgiving dinner, but…we have a FULL MOON this very day! The height of the Moon’s fullness is reached close to 11:00 p.m. Mountain Time, so the energy is building up to and through that point.  This occurs in the sign of Taurus, where it is exalted. The Moon represents mind and emotions. Here in Taurus it is the strongest. Yet we all know how full moons pull on the emotional states of human beings, as research in hospitals, prisons and mental hospitals have shown. It’s a good house for those the Moon rules, Cancers, as it is their 11th house of gain and income. Yet if you add together, the energy typical in many Thanksgiving family gatherings, with Mercury retrograde and combust and now this full Moon stirring the deeper emotions and memories, there can be more drama this year than usual, in your family gatherings!

The Exciting Planet Dance of July, 2015

July 2, 2015

Ready for the Full Moon in Sagittarius? 

As I write, the Moon is nearly totally full in this dual fire sign, appearing opposite the Sun (and Mars) in Gemini.  It was so lovely last night as I stepped outside to see the magical clouds of the Arizona sky forming a silvery platform beneath this shining luminary.

Those with Sagittarius Ascendents or natal Moon signs in the Vedic Astrology system may be feeling a bit tender or even moody with the Moon crossing this sign now, for it does rule their 8th house of transformation and vulnerability, enlivening some of those feelings in their experience for this 2.5 day sojourn of the Moon here. 

The Moon rules the water sign of Cancer.  As it travels through the 6th house from Cancer now, those with this Rising or Moon sign may feel pressured with so many details to take care of, accompanied by a plateful of worry and tension.  Funnily enough, this extra pressure can help us rise to the occasion and act in a more organized way to get a lot done, than when we do not have that pressure! I should know…

We cannot ignore the ongoing “Graha Yuddha” or planetary war that has been occurring for several days  in the sign of CANCER. The two great benefics Jupiter and Venus are aligning in the sky, at the very same degree.  They need to get one full degree apart before the battle is over. This will occur early in the morning of July 3rd. In the meanwhile, to best understand this…think of two vehicles trying to occupy the same space at the same time. We know what that results in!  Astrologically, while these two plants are not physically colliding, the energetic significance of this occurrence does matter.  Venus left out of balance can give rise to “self indulgence” – not that we Cancerians would ever give in to such urges, right?  What are YOU laughing about, you Taureans and Librans? Those of you ruled by Venus could also be feeling some urges or impulses that you’d be better off avoiding right now. Venus does “win” this particular battle. I cannot help but wonder how my Pisces and Sagittarius friends have been feeling these past few days, as Jupiter rules their charts.

July 4th – Happy Independence Day!  Geminis will have plenty to celebrate as Mercury moves into your sign this very day. Having the ruler of your chart in its own sign, and your first house of self, body and personality will help you feel bright, clear, perky, friendly and communicative. I mean even more than normal (LOL).

July 4th – VENUS moves into Leo.  Okay, now the party moves to this fixed fire sign and the Cancer Rising and Moon sign folks will just have to deal with it (i.e. Venus leaving their sign). Not too shabby though, having this benefic now crossing their 2nd house of wealth, family and communication.  Leos benefit from feeling even more beautiful (“I’m a star, baby”) and affectionate than usual.

July 11th – Mercury goes “combust the Sun” i.e. traveling too close to the fire for comfort, so everyone may feel a little less tactful and diplomatic in their communications now…especially the Virgo and Gemini Rising and Moon sign folks.

JULY 13 – Here’s a big change! Jupiter only changes signs every 12.5 to 13 months. Today it leaves its exaltation sign of Cancer and enters Leo, joining benefic Venus there. This is a friend’s sign for Jupiter so it will still be pretty happy, though no longer exalted. Like I said, the party moves to LEO this month.

July 16 – Sun enters Cancer.  This is a beneficial transit for the Cancerians, as the Sun rules their house of wealth, family and communication thus shining a light of positive connection to these areas now. For the Leos, which sign the Sun rules, this represents their 12th house of loss and expenditure, as well as foreign travel. It is a house of isolation and/or seclusion, so they may feel more inward at this time.

July 20 – Mercury enters Cancer.  This placement represents good houses for both Virgos and Geminis, the signs that Mercury rules, so it should bring some positive results, ranging from increased income to greater connection with some family members.

July 25 – VENUS goes retrograde.  Here’s a chance to rethink certain possibilities and options you have been playing with, those with Libra or Taurus Rising or Moon signs. Remember that sometimes what looks like “obstacles and delays” can just be the chance to take a deep breath and look before you leap!  It does not go into direct motion again until September 6th so it may feel like a “long, hot summer” to you. Thus attitude and understanding means everything during this period when so many situations may feel beyond your ability to control.

July 30 – Mars enters Cancer, it’s sign of debilitation, where it typically “feels weakest.” However, the irony for the Cancerians of the Zodiac is that Mars is their Yogakaraka, or best planet, thus it can still bring in a wave of good events into their life, anyway. The main issues they will have to avoid now is having a short fuse, or being cranky or irritable (in Ayurvedic medicine this relates to the element of Pitta being out of balance).  Mars is a planet of energy and fire, so can stir up some ambition, too, and more initiative to reach goals and get things done.
