January, 2018 – Planets in the Vedic Sky

January 2, 2018

First, an overview of highlights for 2018, and then I’ll touch on the planet moves for January.

Cancer Rising and Moon sign folks will have to make peace with all the changes that Rahu passing through that sign will bring them throughout 2018.  Cancerians enjoy the peaceful pleasures of home life, but Rahu likes to cause chaos and unexpected events. Change is the “constant” for the year ahead, and possible dealings with “foreigners.” Rahu also stands for transformation, so we can visualize positive changes, if we are willing to embrace growth.

Across the zodiac, those with Capricorn Ascendants or Moon signs are experiencing the transit of Ketu, the south node of the Moon, through their sign. It stands for “hindrance and degradation” so there may be much soul-searching going on, some shyness, and even psychic experiences. Ketu can also bring a sudden mobilization of energy and a sudden manifestation of events. It is the other half of Rahu, the cosmic serpent, so unrest is likely, but again, can be used as a tool for greater understanding of one’s deeper nature, and for growth, if we decide to not resist the experiences it is sure to bring.  In addition, SATURN, ruler of Capricorn, is passing through their 12th house of isolation, seclusion, loss and expenses. This also can bring a focus on spiritual development and enlightenment.

Scorpios are enjoying a nice break now that Saturn finally moved from their sign on 10/26/2017. That is the first time for Scorpios to be free of the heaviness and restrictions Saturn can bring, for the previous 2.5 years. There are more good things to look forward to in the coming year, depending on the transits of Mars, lord of your chart (watch my blog posts, or get a yearly reading with me), and the icing on the cake is benefic Jupiter, friend of Mars, moving into Scorpio on 10/11/2018.

For Libras, Jupiter is not their best planet, based on the houses it rules. Until it moves out of their sign on 10/11/2018, it will bring more work, service to perform, and various projects. That won’t wear you out, but keep you busy, for sure. You’ll have to watch for weight fluctuations if you have Libra Rising or Moon sign.

Sagittarians now have the weight of Saturn on their sign, where it will stay for about 2.5 more years. This brings a more serious disposition to this normally fun-loving sign. It can bring money (rules their 2nd house) but lots of responsibilities and duties, and there’s just no getting around that.  Some may even have bouts of depression, but staying active, finding ways to help others, would be a good remedy for that.

ECLIPSES in 2018: January 31 = total lunar eclipse; February 15 = partial solar eclipse; July 13 = partial solar eclipse; July 27 = total lunar eclipse; August 11 = partial solar eclipse. I will describe each of these more fully, as I get to the monthly blog posts for those months.

JANUARY 2018 Transits: (to fully understand what they mean for YOU, it’s best to book a yearly reading with me. Call 720-448-3742).

1/01/2018 – We begin with a FULL MOON in Gemini. Cancerians (ruled by the Moon) may feel more inward, or even a little lonely or isolated, as this is a 12th house transit for them. On the other hand (a saying Geminis are very fond of…) they may feel a lot of spiritual fullness within as they use this time to meditate or reflect on where they are and the kind of year they’ve just experienced, coming through the challenges triumphantly. A la that song, “I’m still standing!” ♪

1/01/2018 – Both Saturn and Venus go combust the Sun today. This could bring some heightened edginess or easy irritability for the signs ruled by these planets: respectively, Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus and Libra. Saturn goes non-combust on 1/07/2018.  Venus goes non-combust on 2/19/2018.

1/06/2018 – MERCURY moves into Sagittarius. This is a welcomed position for those with Gemini Rising or Moon signs, as the ruler of their charts now shifts from the house of health problems, to the 7th house of business, partnership and travel. For Virgos, also ruled by Mercury, this is the 4th house of home, friends, vehicles, and self confidence, so it is also a good position.

1/13/2018 – VENUS enters Capricorn.  This is a friend’s sign so Venus is happy there. Good for both signs that Venus rules: for Taureans it will now be in their 9th house of good luck, good fortune, dharma, remedies and Natural Law. For Librans, this is their 4th house of comforts, home, friends, vehicles, self-confidence.

1/14/2018 – now the SUN joins Venus in Capricorn (which is one reason Venus is still combust into February, as they are traveling so close together now) This is not a friend’s sign for the Sun, which rules LEO. It is their 6th house of enemies, rivals, competitors, stress, worries, and health issues for our Leo friends, so they will have to wade through some of the above for a one month period now.

1/16/2018 – MARS happily enters Scorpio, its own sign, filling those who have this Rising or Moon sign with energy, courage, drive, initiative and the like. The only thing to watch for is possible bursts of anger or irritability, if things don’t happen as fast as you would like. Speaking of speed, better slow down, to avoid a speeding ticket during this transit! For the Aries Rising and Moon signs, also ruled by Mars, well…that is their 8th house, so there may be some vulnerability and changes to deal with.

1/26/2018 – MERCURY goes 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.  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.

1/27/2018 – MERCURY enters Capricorn,  joining the Sun, Venus and Ketu in this Earth sign. Capricorn Rising and Moon sign people have a lot to juggle now, with many projects keeping them busy, some vulnerability brought to them by the Sun (ruler of their 8th house) but also some playfulness which Mercury and Venus traveling together generally bring to the party. This is the 8th house for Geminis, which represents vulnerability and transformation. It is the 5th house of education and success for Virgos, the other sign ruled by Mercury, so a better deal for the Virgos.

1/31/2018 – Total Lunar Eclipse, occurring in the sign of Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. Those with Cancer Ascendants or Moon signs can expect to feel more sensitive than normal, as Rahu tries to “put out the light” of this luminary. Moon represents mind and emotions so can effect the clarity of one’s mental and emotional level now.  This eclipse will be visible in the USA, thus it has more impact on Americans. Here are all the areas of visibility for this one: western North America, North/East Europe, North/East Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, Antarctica,  the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans.  It is interesting that our current president was born during a total lunar eclipse, so I will be watching to see how this one affects him.  It occurs in his 12th house of loss.

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

The Intense Planets of August, 2017

July 31, 2017

We have no less than TWO eclipses and a Mercury Retrograde period to get through, coming up in August. Read on….

To get the most out of my blogs, it is helpful to know your Rising Sign (Ascendant or Lagna) and your Moon sign. Have you ever had a Vedic Astrology reading? If so, that information would have been provided to you. If not, you can always schedule a 90 minute session with me.

August 7th/8th – depending on where you live, the partial lunar eclipse will occur late in the evening of the 7th, or the wee hours of the 8th.  As a reminder, all eclipses are inauspicious and it is not good to view them.  Fortunately, this one will not be visible in the US, except for Hawaii.  This eclipse will be seen in much of Europe, much of Asia, Australia, Africa, east in South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Antarctica.  It occurs in the sign of Capricorn, which is the 7th house for Cancerians, the sign ruled by the Moon. Thus the Cancer Rising and Moon sign people’s tender feelings may be more sensitive than usual, and they could have trouble being “seen” in their primary relationships, as the 7th house governs marriage and partnership.

August 12th – MERCURY RETROGRADE, once again. Get ready for another 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.  It occurs in the sign of Leo where it is conjunct malefic Rahu, who causes chaos in the best of times, so just hang on until Mercury again goes direct motion on September 5th.

August 16th – SUN enters Leo.  Now normally this is a good position for the Sun, to be happily empowered as it crosses through its own sign in transit.  But let us not forget that Rahu is just lurking there, waiting for the right moment to swallow this important luminary in our solar system and put out its brilliant light. More on that event below.

August 19th – MERCURY goes COMBUST the Sun. That means traveling too close for comfort to its friend, the fiery orb.   This makes any planet angry and irritable and those it rules will feel its weakened condition (Geminis and Virgos) on top of the ruler of their charts being in retrograde. The combustion lasts until September 2nd.

August 20th – VENUS enters water sign Cancer, bringing all its good qualities to bless the Cancer Rising and Moon sign people. They will feel more attractive, and be more affectionate, as their focus turns to either artistic or creative projects, music, entertaining or love and romance.  Taurus and Libra are ruled by this great benefic and this sign represents a good position for them both, thus many of them will be enjoying Venusian qualities late in the summer. Remember that your dashas i.e. your personal planetary cycles “rule” and are more important than most of the transits. To learn where you are in that sequential flow, contact me for a reading.

August 21st – TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE, with total visibility in the USA from the Northwest, through the heart of the Midwest (below Iowa) and finishing its route through our country, as it passes through South Carolina. Not auspicious at all, and I don’t recommend trying to look at it, both for your eyesight’s sake and to avoid the malicious effects of Rahu’s attempt to put out the light of the Sun. However briefly that lasts, it is certainly not good for any Leos, as the Sun rules their sign and this eclipse happens to occur IN the sign of Leo, so that is like a double whammy.  The classical Vedic literature describes eclipses as being bad omens, not a good time to make major decisions or begin new projects. It’s more of a time to go inward, meditate, read scriptures and spiritual literature and fast during the height of the eclipse, a couple of hours on either side of it.  One of the most famous Americans who will surely feel the effects is Leo Ascendant Donald J. Trump.

August 25th – SATURN goes Direct. At long last, this ruler of the signs of Capricorn and Aquarius, will begin to move forward, and not a minute too soon for the Scorpio Rising and especially Scorpio Moon people, who have been hosting him.  He doesn’t get out of this sign until October 26th, but at least the forward motion helps the Capricorns and Aquarians now, to experience more progress in their projects, long-held desires, goals and aims.  This is our slowest-moving planet so any shift of gears in Saturn’s path is a big deal to consider.

August 26th – MARS moves out of Cancer, its sign of debilitation, and into its friend’s sign, LEO.  It will be quite the planetary pile up in this fire sign now, with four planets conjunct there now: Mars, Rahu, Sun, and the retrograde Mercury. It bears noting that Rahu and Mars will be at the exact degree on this date, which is not so helpful to Mars, and the signs it rules, Scorpio and Aries. So please take note of this date and protect yourself from unnecessary risks and accidents.

My September blog next month will also feature some big planet changes, with more of the slower-moving planets shifting signs: Jupiter, Rahu and Ketu. So stay tuned to the Sunshine Corner, currently operating from Boulder, Colorado.

Tel: 928-284-4060.  Thank you for any referrals you may send me.  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, please call me, and we can schedule a 90 minute session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, healingevents@yahoo.com. http://www.vedicstarcharts.com

June Planets: All About Saturn as it Backs Up Into Scorpio

May 29, 2017

June is a month with some significant planet changes in their various transits around the fixed Zodiac, which is the system utilized by Vedic Astrology. We will explore here especially, the movements of two of the slower moving planets, Jupiter and Saturn. Going in order of the changes this month:

June 3 – MERCURY enters Taurus.  Here it is in a friend’s sign. This is an improvement for Virgo, one of the two signs that Mercury governs, as here Mercury is in the Virgos’ 9th house of good luck, good fortune and dharma.  It is not as good of a placement for the other sign ruled by Mercury, which is Gemini. For this sign, Taurus represents the 12th house,  thus it connects the Geminis with either foreign travel, loss and expenses, “bed pleasures,” or the desire to go inward and perhaps take some down time, alone. Feelings of isolation may occur. This would be an excellent time to attend a meditation retreat.

June 9 – The Full Moon occurs in water sign Scorpio, which is a friend’s sign, for the Moon. Those ruled by Moon, i.e. the sign of Cancer, should be feeling romantic or inquisitive at this time, as this represents their 5th house.  However, the Moon in this sign of its debilitation may bring on more emotional sensitivity than usual. 

June 9 – That same day, MERCURY goes into combustion with the Sun, and this condition will last until July 3, creating a bit more tension in communications for many, in general. Especially the Virgo and Gemini Rising and Moon sign people will feel the effects, which may cause some irritability or impatience in their interactions with others.

June 9 –  JUPITER gets out of retrograde and goes direct motion now!  There can be a greater sense of progress and moving forward by, especially by the two signs ruled by this great benefic, Sagittarius and Pisces.  Jupiter first went retrograde on February 5 (the 6th, in most of the country), so this will be an exciting and positive shift. Jupiter represents happiness, good judgment, good luck, good fortune and knowledge. These qualities can now be more in the forefront in the collective consciousness.

June 14 – The SUN enters air sign Gemini, bringing some energy and productivity to the Gemini Ascendants and Moon sign folks. It is also a positive placement for those ruled by the Sun, the Leos among us, for the lord of their chart will be passing through their 11th house of gain, income and fulfillment of desire. Nice.

June 18 – MERCURY enters Gemini, its own sign. Here it is happy and strong, bringing greater clarity to the collective intellect. Geminis should sign now. It’s also great for the Virgo Rising and Moon signs, as the ruler of their chart now crosses through their 10th house of action, career, name and fame.

June 20 – SATURN retrogrades all the way back into Scorpio!  Now we can get into the nitty-gritty of our slowest-moving planet. It takes 2.5 years for Saturn to change signs.  Saturn entered fire sign Sagittarius on January 26, but then it started this retrograde dance on April 5.  It continues to back up into the sign it had been in for over two years already, SCORPIO.  Thus the Scorpio rising and Moon sign folks get a little “bonus Saturn.  Though Saturn goes direct motion on August 25, it does not re-enter Sagittarius until October 26. 

This period will be most noticeable by the two signs ruled by Saturn, which are Capricorn and Aquarius. Scorpio represents good houses for both of these signs.  For Capricorns, it is their 11th house of gain and income. For Aquarians, this their 10th house of career, action, name and fame.

For Scorpios, Saturn rules their 3rd and 4th houses, which isn’t so bad, as influences go. However, Saturn in its own right, represents grief, depression, obstacles, separation, hard work, service, and humility. Expect to experience one or more of these influences during those four months from June 20 until October 26.  A retrograde time always gives those affected an opportunity to revisit and finalize some things that were not completed and finished satisfactorily in the prior passage over this sign. 

Although the “Sags” will experience a brief respite from the sometimes heavy pressures of Saturn’s passage there, bringing some relief for those four months.  Then they will get their turn again, when Saturn re-enters this sign on October 26 for the next 2.5 years period.  Owning their 2nd house of wealth, and 3rd house of self-efforts, as long as they are willing to work hard, stay organized and focused this transit does not have to be so bad.  Unless you have your Moon there.

This brings us to the subject of Sadhe Sati. This is a 7.5 year transit which each of us experience every 28 years (the first one in life depends on where one’s Moon and Saturn were at the time of birth).  Saturn spends 2.5 years in the house before the Moon, then smack dab on the Moon, and then the 2nd house to the Moon. This cycle can really cause us to become a lot more philosophical and detached vs. all the attachments that this mundane world can try and create within us, which only brings grief along the path.  I have so many friends who have their natal Moons in either Scorpio or Sagittarius, and I’ve witnessed the various pressures and hardships they have been under for the last 2.5 to 5 years.  Moon represents mind and emotion while Saturn represents grief and depression, thus you can see why this isn’t such a fun cycle, but we can certainly use it to grow, learn a lot of spiritual lessons and be of service to our fellow man.

June 29 – VENUS enters Taurus, its own sign. Thus Venus will be in high dignity at the same time that Mercury is in its own sign, as well. Happier times are thus on the horizon for the Taureans. They will want to be surrounded by beauty, music, art, luxuries and pleasures. For the other sign ruled by Venus, Libra, those with that Ascendant or Moon sign, this is their 8th house of transformation and vulnerability, so it might not be as smooth a transit as for the Taureans.   

Blessings of the planets to you, from the Sunshine Corner in from Sedona, AZ.  Tel. 928-284-4060.  Thank you for any referrals you may send me.  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, please call me, and we can schedule a 90 minute, taped session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, healingevents@yahoo.com. vedicstarcharts.com

May Planets: Mercury Goes Direct

April 29, 2017

The merry month of May brings some relief on the starry horizon. We’ll be going down from three retrograde planets, to only two of them, for a while longer.

May 3 – MERCURY gets out of retrograde.  Communication and devices dealing with same, should go more smoothly now.  Those with Rising signs and Moon signs ruled by this planet (Virgos and Geminis) will especially enjoy this shift, and feel more progress with this forward movement.

May 14 – The SUN enters earth sign Taurus.  This represents the 10th house of career for the Leos, who are ruled by the Sun, so this will still be a positive transit for them. Since the Sun also represents “government” things can now calm down some after the thirty days of its passage through fire sign Aries.  Ideas from calmer heads may be able to reign now.  It is also a positive transit for those with Taurus Rising or Moon signs, bringing friends and supporters closer to them.

May 26 – MARS enters air sign Gemini, bringing in new energy and drive to help achieve their ambitions. Just take heed, Gemini Rising and Moon sign friends, that you don’t let the energy slide to the negative side of the Mars spectrum which is anger, impatience, irritability and restlessness.

Mars 30 – VENUS goes into fire sign Aries, finally leaving its sign of Exaltation Pisces where it had a nice, long stay, due to a period of being retrograde.  This position is actually better for the Libra Rising and Moon sign people, as Venus will now be traveling through their 7th house of partners, business, marriage and travel.  That’s a lot better than the previous sign which is their 6th house of stress, worries and health issues. Enjoy the change, Librans.   Those with Taurus Rising or Moon signs, which are also ruled by Venus, will now have a 12th house transit going on. That means the ruler of their charts is crossing the house of loss and expenditure, so they have to watch their spending. Foreign travel could be another possibility, as well as the desire for solitude. They may also feel a bit isolated, on the other hand.

May 31 – MARS goes combust the Sun.  This state of traveling too close to the fiery energy of the Sun makes any planet “angry” and thus not able to give us the full positive side of its qualities.  Mars rules the signs of Aries and Scorpio, thus those born with these Rising or Moon signs will want to take care to get enough rest to be able to reflect on situations calmly, vs. going off in some impulsive reactions.

Here we can see that there are certainly fewer planetary disturbances than last month. Only Saturn and Jupiter remain in retrograde motion, after Mercury goes Direct on May 3rd.  Jupiter remains retrograde until June 9th, so we’ll have more discussion on that influence, next month.

This blog is meant to provide just a taste of possible effects from the transits, the changing conditions of the planets in the Vedic Sky. For a more complete understanding of your own chart, as usual, you are invited to contact me and schedule a full reading.

Just reach out to me here in the Sunshine Corner in Sedona, AZ.  Tel. 928-284-4060.  Thank you for any referrals you may send me.  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, please call me, and we can schedule a 90 minute, recorded session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, healingevents@yahoo.com. vedicstarcharts.com

VENUS Enters Libra Today, November 29th

November 29, 2015

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.

Working on my second book will keep me busy well into 2016.  Remember to keep up with my latest author blogs, too, on my website marystevensonauthor.com  – It’s not too early to think about your New Year’s resolutions. I hope that one of them may be having your yearly chart reading update!  The celestial insights that this 5,000 year old system of Astrology has to offer, cannot be over-emphasized. Timing is everything, as the old saying goes, and Jyotish or Vedic Astrology examines the trends of time in detail for you specifically.
