March 2018 Planets: VENUS Goes Into Exaltation

March 1, 2018

Spring Comes in with Benefic Venus Becoming Exalted.

3/01/18 – VENUS enters Pisces late in the night, which is its sign of exaltation. Taurus Ascendant and Moon sign people should be very happy, as the ruler of their chart will be now in their 11th house of gain, income and fulfillment of desire, exalted, no less. Woo hoo!  Venus also rules Libra, but for the Librans this is the 6th house of worry, stress, obstacles, health issues, so it will not be as positive a transit for them. Pisceans will gain energy and feel warm and loving, as their sensual and artistic side comes out more thanks to Venus. Those with Cancer Ascendants or Moon signs will be delighted to see Venus move into their 9th (best) house to increase their good luck and fortunes now.

3/02/18 – MERCURY enters Pisces, joining his friend Venus in this dual water sign. The only thing is, that is his sign of debilitation, where he feels weakest. Fortunately, having Venus conjunct in this sign now, grants him Neechabhanga yoga, which is a cancellation of that debilitation, to a large degree. These two planets, when traveling together, bring more playfulness, so that’s the party Pisces Rising and Moon sign people will be feeling now.  For Virgos, ruled by Mercury, it’s a good house to connect them to partners, business and/or travel. For Geminis, also ruled by Mercury, this is their 10th house of career, action, name and fame so it’s also a helpful transit for them.

3/05/18 – Mercury goes non-combust. That means it is now traveling far enough apart from the Sun, to no longer have its qualities suppressed.  Much of the recent irritability and impatience will be gone, for everyone, as Mercury rules communication, but the Virgos and Geminis will especially benefit.

3/07/18 – MARS moves into Sagittarius.  Here it joins its enemy Saturn. This will not be so comfortable for those with Sagittarius Rising or Moon signs, because this duo together represents push/pull energy or “hurry up and wait.” It will also not bring the most positive situations for the Aries and Scorpios either, as Mars rules their charts. At least this is the best (9th) house for Aries, and will increase their good luck. This is the 2nd house for Scorpios, so can help them with finances, but with some delays or obstacles, brought on by Saturn.

3/08/18 – JUPITER, the great benefic goes retrograde now, and it will stay in this condition until July 10th. Retrograde status for a benefic, makes it stronger in its benefic qualities (and the opposite when it is malefic planet). The only folks who may feel a sudden halt or slowdown in some of their plans will be those ruled by Jupiter, the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces.  Jupiter is currently in the sign of Libra, which is not a great thing for the Librans, for even though it is a great benefic, it does not rule the best houses for Libra. Thus, it is bringing 6th house energy to those with this Rising or Moon sign, i.e. worry, stress, obstacles, delays, health issues, etc.

3/14/18 – The SUN enters Pisces, joining Venus and Mercury there. The Sun can bring some stress to the Pisceans, as it rules their 6th house of worries, stress, enemies, rivals and competitors. For those ruled by the Sun, Leos, the ruler of their chart is now crossing their 8th house of vulnerability, transformation, battles and disunion. So Leos need to be ready for some “changes” with three planets now transiting their transformation house. 

3/22/18 – MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE!  Hang in there Virgos and Geminis.  You know the drill with this influence. It will last until 4/15/18, and affects communication, commerce, tactfulness and diplomacy. The positive, cheerful qualities of Mercury will be lacking to a degree now.   Traditionally, this is never a good period for anyone to sign a contract, start a new business, get married, etc. Conditions get further aggravated when Mercury goes COMBUST the Sun on 3/24/18. Combustion makes a planet (and those ruled by it) more easily angered or irritated, and just feeling somewhat rough.  This combustion period lasts until 4/08/18.

3/26/18 – VENUS enters Aries, fire sign of new beginnings, just as Spring has officially gotten underway.  This brings both good finances and partners to those with Aries Rising or Moon signs, due to the houses it rules for them.  Libras will be happier to have this benefic ruler of their chart now traveling through their house of partners, business and travel. Taureans will either feel to isolate themselves a little more, or need to watch out for spending too much now. At least it is the house of “bed pleasures” and foreign travel for them.

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.

Big Planet Changes for September, 2017 – Mercury is out of Retrograde

September 6, 2017

The Sunshine Corner has moved back to Boulder, Colorado! I look forward to providing my Vedic Astrology services to you from this fair city. My contact info remains the same.

There’s a lot to discuss with some major planets shifting this month, starting with:

9/02/17 – Mercury got out of combustion with the Sun, easing the way for smoother communications and especially helping our Gemini and Virgo friends.

9/05/17 – Mercury went Direct motion! This is of even greater importance to the Geminis and Virgos, whose signs are ruled by this planet, so they really feel it whenever Mercury is Retrograde.  In addition, Mercury governs commerce (buying and selling) so things should flow more smoothly for those engaged in commerce, plus it governs communication in general, thus by extension our communication devices, the intellect, and friendships. It also signifies tactfulness and diplomacy. Expect improvements in all of the above areas now.

9/08/17 – RAHU and KETU CHANGE SIGNS!  These are the north and south nodes of the Moon, respectively.  They only move every 18 months, and always in a backwards direction.  I am aware that some empheris users see this movement as occurring on Sept. 9th, but what my software shows is just about 6:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight time for the shift of Rahu into Cancer and Ketu into Capricorn.  The effects are too detailed to mention in this report.  Suffice it to say that those with Leo or Aquarius Rising, Moon or Sun signs will feel some relief, as Rahu and Ketu finally move out of their signs after 18 months.  Those with Cancer Rising, Moon or Sun signs are in for a lot of changes, with Rahu standing for “transformation.” Get ready to turn on a dime, Cancerians, and don’t become too attached to your well-laid plans right now.  Ketu brings more intuition to the Capricorns, but it does also stand for “hindrance and degradation” so they could be in for a time of feeling invisible to some degree, and some embarrassing situations are bound to arise. Either that, or dealing with some situations that arise from past karma.

9/11/17 – Another of our slower-moving planets, benefic Jupiter moves on this date, from Virgo, into the air sign of Libra. He only moves about every 12.5 to 13 months, so this is another big shift of planet energy occurring in September.  Jupiter governs the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces. For the Pisceans, this new position represents the 8th house of transformation, vulnerability, battles and “disunion.”  This could represent internal changes, or changes in aspects of the outer life, including career, as Jupiter governs their 10th house of career. It’s a better setup for the “Sags” as this is their 11th house of gain and income. For Librans, Jupiter does not rule the very best houses, so they may experience some “mixed results.” Having to watch out for weight gain, would be one of them!

9/14/17 – VENUS moves into LEO, bringing its pleasure-seeking, comfort-loving ways to this fire sign.  This move takes place close to midnight MDT, therefore won’t be experienced until the next day in time zones to the east of us here in Boulder.  Because of the houses Venus owns from the viewpoint of Leo Ascendants and Moon sign people, they should feel a nice boost of energy and be more active now, as well as enjoy indulging in their favorite comforts and luxuries. Venus rules Taurus and Libra. The Taureans get to enjoy pleasant times at home, entertaining friends and family; also the possibility is there to enjoy some new vehicle.  For Librans, this is their 11th house of gain, income and fulfillment of desire, so it will also represent positive experiences for them during this transit, which lasts until October 9th.

9/16/17  – TWO planet changes happen this date: MARS gets out of combustion with the Sun (good news for Aries and Scorpios, to feel less pressured and irritated), plus the SUN enters Virgo.  The Sun in this practical, logical Earth sign, brings warmth to the land as we move into the harvest season. Virgos may feel a bit more inward now, as the Sun rules their 12th house of solitude and isolation. They will need to watch their spending habits now. Leos will enjoy having the lord of their chart passing through the 2nd house of wealth, speech and family, enlivening these important areas of life.

9/21/17 – Once again Mercury goes combust the Sun, i.e. traveling too close to the fiery orb for comfort. Thus all that Mercury signifies could get “singed” a little, from diplomacy and tactfulness, to communication and clear thinking.

9/26/17 – Mercury will be so much happier to move into VIRGO today, which is its own sign. This strengthens the logical, clear thinking aspects of all who are ruled by this planet, those with Gemini or Virgo Ascendants or Moon signs.  Mercury stays in this sign until October 13th.

Blessings of the planets to you, from the Sunshine Corner in Boulder, CO.  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

Planets for the New Year: January, 2017

January 8, 2017

New Year’s blessing to all! May 2017 bring you many gifts.

Once again, I can blame my tardiness on getting this report written to Mercury Retrograde, but that just ended, so now, back to work.

VERY EXCITING NEWS! Please visit my newly redesigned website, which looks awesome and much more up-to-date. http://www.vedicstarcharts.com Now is a great time to have a reading with me, to get an in-depth look at your year ahead. As you can see on my website, I can now accept PayPal payments for my services.

January 2nd – Mercury got out of combustion with the Sun, bringing relief to all those with Virgo or Gemini Rising or Moon signs, especially.

January 8th – MERCURY WENT DIRECT! Yes, that was just this morning, so communications in general should improve now. Situations that seemed to be “going backwards” for the Virgos and Geminis for the past three weeks, can move forward more smoothly, as well.  If you’ve been having trouble with communication equipment, Mercury getting out of retrograde should also be a big improvement.  Go ahead and sign those contracts and make the new agreements you have been considering.

January 13th – The SUN enters earth sign Capricorn this date, which is not its favorite sign to transit. For the Leos, the sign that the Sun rules, this represents your 6th house of enemies, rivals and competitors, stress, worry, and health problems. You can expect some delays and snags until February 12th.

January 20th – MARS enters Pisces.  For those with Aries Rising or Moon signs, this represents your 12th house, so you may experience some losses or expenses, may feel you need some time alone, or conversely, just feel isolated. Foreign travel would be a possibility, depending on your dashas (personal planetary cycles). For the other sign ruled by Mars, Scorpio, this represents your 5th house of success, learning, children, and romance, so it’s a better placement for you.

AND NOW THE BIG ONE!  Our slowest-moving planet, SATURN, will enter Sagittarius on January 26th.  This is a relief for those with Scorpio Moons especially, as you have been in the middle of your Sadhe Sati period. Sorry to spoil the fun, but I must report that your relief will be temporary: Saturn goes retrograde on April 5th, and backs all the way up into Scorpio again on June 20th. It goes direct motion on August 25th, but does not move back into Sagittarius until October 26. There it will remain for roughly 2.5 years.  Sagittarians, “call me,” to get the scoop. You will be working hard, have many responsibilities, and will need to stay focused in the next few years, including having a structured schedule, which your nature may rebel against. Trust me, it’s worth it. Also, you’ll need to get enough rest every night!  Meditation is a great help for those dealing with Saturn’s influence.

January 27th – Benefic VENUS enters Pisces, its sign of Exaltation. The signs ruled by this planet are Taurus and Libra. The Taureans will fare very well, as this is a 10th house transit, emphasizing your popularity, career, name and fame, etc. Libras have to be careful, as this is your 6th house of worry and stress. Take care of yourself and watch out for jealousy that could be directed at you now. Pisces Rising or Moon folks will feel more creative, warm and loving, yet Venus does also rule your 8th house of vulnerability and transformation.  Pisceans really have to learn to have healthy boundaries or others will take advantage of your “Emotional Healer” nature and you could end up feeling drained.

For those who like to plan far into the future, I will mention a very powerful TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE ON August 21st, and yes, it will be visible in the US. The path of complete darkness caused when Rahu tries to “swallow the Sun” is from the Pacific NW, diagonally through the Midwest, and going through South Carolina, from what I’ve read. Eclipses are very inauspicious, should not be viewed, especially by anyone who is pregnant, and their biggest effects happen along the areas in which they are visible.  This eclipse occurs in LEO, which sign the Sun owns, thus it will have the greatest effect on those born with Leo Ascendants or Moon signs.

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

September Skies: Vedic Astrology Blog by Mary Stevenson

September 4, 2016

There’s much to report in the realm of planet interactions this month.

9/01/16 – The Sun was eclipsed by malefic north node of the Moon, Rahu, in its own sign of LEO.  However, this eclipse was barely visible anywhere, and not at all in the USA so other than those with Leo Rising or Moons signs, who may have felt some energetic shifts, I do not feel this was a very significant event, for most.

9/06/16 – MERCURY (which is already retrograde) goes combust the Sun.  This condition lasts until 9/16. It does not make Mercury a happy camper, thus misunderstandings and verbal disagreements may ensue, with Mercury not able to provide his usual tactfulness and diplomacy.

MERCURY RETROGRADE began last month and will go until 9/21.  At first, it won’t be too much of a problem, since this planet that deals with communication has been crossing Virgo, its own sign, where it is strong and happy. BUT!  It will back up into LEO, the previous sign on 9/09/16.  There it will be sitting with the Sun (briefly, until it moves) and malefic RAHU.  Things will get more dicey for those ruled by Mercury, Geminis and Virgos.  Especially the Virgos may experience more challenging results at this time, with the ruler of their charts crossing their 12th house of loss, expenses, seclusion or isolation.  Add to this Rahu playing a wild card thrown into this transit.  This condition lasts until 10/03/16, when Mercury will return to Virgo, and peace and order will be restored for you.

9/11/16 – Benefic JUPITER goes combust the Sun.  This condition lasts until 10/10/16 affecting those ruled by Jupiter, Pisces and Sagittarius.  You have a normally happy, upbeat nature, but could feel some inner “pinch” at this time. Take care of yourself and know that “this too shall pass.”

9/16/16 – the Sun enters Virgo. Here it escapes its one month transit with malefic Rahu.  That will come as a relief.  Jupiter and Venus will still be in Virgo at this time.  Those with Virgo Rising and Moon signs may have to watch their tendency to spend now, caused by the Sun, their 12th ruler, crossing the 1st house of self.

9/16/16 – Meanwhile, that same day, there will be a Penumbral Lunar eclipse (partial).  We are fortunate that it will not be visible in the USA. Regions which will be seeing at least some parts of the eclipse: Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, West in South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic, Antarctica. Eclipses are not auspicious in the tradition of  Vedic Astrology, thus those in the areas where the light of this eclipsed luminary is visible, will experience the greatest effects. 

9/17/16 – MARS ENTERS SAGITTARIUS!  Finally this long ordeal that has been going on since 7/12/16, with Mars transiting Scorpio in conjunction with Saturn, will be over. Both planets will breath their respective signs of relief.  This has not been an easy transit especially, for those with Aries Rising or Moon signs, since Scorpio represents their 8th house of vulnerability, battles and disunion, transformation, life and death.  It will be such a blessing for the ruler of your sign to now enter your 9th “best” house in your chart and bring you support of Nature, good luck and good fortune.

9/18/16 – VENUS enters Libra its own sign. This great benefic will be very happy here and benefit those with Libra Rising or Moon signs greatly.  The other sign ruled by Venus is Taurus. They will not have as easy a run of it, since Libra represents their 6th house of stress, worry, enemies, rivals and competitors, plus possible health problems. This transit lasts until 10/13/16.

There is no doubt that next month will be an easier ride for most of us, once Mars finally moves away from Saturn on 9/17; Mercury gets out of retrograde on 9/21 and we get further past the two eclipses of September.

To get a better understanding of how all these transits and other factors affect your personal life, call me for a reading!

February Planets Dance Through the Vedic Star Sky

February 1, 2016

We start the month with Jupiter being the only planet in retrograde motion.

January 7th is the date Jupiter went retrograde. It gets out of this condition on May 9th, which is when relief comes to the signs it rules, Sagittarius and Pisces. Thus if your Ascendant or Moon sign is one of these, you now have the opportunity to work on finishing up some old business or getting to the bottom of a situation that had eluded your grasp previously.  That is one thing a retrograde period is good for.

A further complication for our Sag and Pisces friends is the situation of Jupiter being conjunct, to the very same degree for some days now, with malefic Rahu, the north node of the Moon, who is known as the “seizer.”  The lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu, only eclipse our solar system luminaries, the Sun and Moon, in the technical sense. Energetically though, those ruled by Jupiter could feel that something is trying to “eclipse” their goals or feelings at this time.  Because both Rahu and Jupiter are in backwards (retrograde) movement now, this to-the-very-degree situation will continue for some time.  By Feb. 20th they will finally at least be more than one degree apart, which will help some.

Virgos and Geminis in the Vedic Astrology zodiac have been feeling relieved since the ruler of their chart, Mercury, got out of retrograde on January 25. 

Feb. 8 – MERCURY moves into Capricorn, a friend’s sign (its friend Venus joins him there on Feb. 12th).  For Virgos this represents the 5th house of learning, education, success, children and love affairs, plus inclinations of the mind.  Thus Virgos get the good end of this particular transit.  For Geminis, the other sign ruled by Mercury, it is not as much fun, as Capricorn represents their 8th house of battles, disunion, transformation and vulnerability.  We can only ask the all-important question, “What am I to learn from this situation?” rather than let possible insecurities overtake us during this period of changing circumstances.

Feb. 12 – VENUS enters Capricorn, a friend’s sign.  This bodes well for both signs ruled by this great benefic, Libra and Taurus. For the Libras, the ruler of their chart will now be crossing the 4th house of home, real estate, friends, vehicles, self confidence.  There could be some cozy times spent at home or genial social gatherings with friends now.  For the Taureans, Capricorn represents their 9th house of good luck, good fortune, destiny, dharma, remedies, pilgrimage, natural law, higher education, etc.  Thus our Taurus friends should be in for a period of feeling lucky and on point in their endeavors.

As a reminder, your Dashas are King! That means your personal planetary cycles weigh more in the analysis of a chart reading, than do the transits.  I give insights on where the planets are in the sky each month in this Blog, to offer a taste of what this 5,000-year old aspect of Vedic Science can do to offer insights into the trends going on in your life, but nothing replaces a personal chart reading, FYI.

Feb. 13 – The SUN moves into Aquarius.  For the Aquarians, the Sun owns the 7th house, representing partners, thus those with Aquarius Rising or Moon signs could easily attract to themselves a business partner or new personal relationship during this 30-day transit.  Conversely, for the Leos, who are ruled by the Sun, they will find themselves able to and interested in reaching out to other people and partners, as the ruler of their chart will be crossing their 7th house.

Feb. 20 – Things heat up for Scorpios as their planetary ruler, MARS enters their sign, joining its enemy Saturn, which has been transiting there for some time.  Mars remains here until June 17.  Saturn doesn’t move until January 26, 2017.  These two planets represent the cross-purpose concepts of “hurry up, and slow down.”  Mars wants to get everything done YESTERDAY (or sooner), thus bringing much drive, energy, initiative and action into the energy field of Scorpios.  But Saturn wants a more moderate, deliberate pace.  Saturn brings detachment and delays, humility and hard work.  It is not to be trifled with! And certainly won’t let itself be pushed around by impatient Mars, which can sometimes cause an individual to act rashly…the very opposite of Saturn’s cautious nature.  Thus if  you have a Scorpio Moon or Ascendant, you may experience some internal push/pull or paradoxical forces operating within your psyche and your life until Mars moves on, March 1st.

We shall have some interesting changes to discuss next month, with a March 8/9 (depending on your time zone) total solar eclipse, and a partial lunar eclipse on March 23.  As if that were not enough excitement, Saturn goes retrograde on March 25!  Stay tuned.

No. 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 minutes, taped session.  Thank you, Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer, healingevents@yahoo.com. vedicstarcharts.com

November Begins with a Mars/Venus Planetary War

November 1, 2015

Planetary War occurs when two planets are moving through their orbits within one degree of each other viewed from the perspective of we humans on Earth. Havoc ensues, and it’s winner take all in that power struggle, thus affecting the signs ruled by the loser.

In October we had Mars and Jupiter in a planetary war that ended on October 20, with the two of them taking turns vanquishing the other.  Then Jupiter and Venus got into the same degree and that war lasted from October 24-26.  Now we have Mars and Venus at it from October 31 through November 5th. Just in case you were feeling disempowered or had a somewhat rough couple of weeks here, this may provide some insight for you.  Especially if you have a Scorpio, Aries, Libra or Taurus Ascendant or Moon sign.  Back in October it would have been those with Sagittarius or Pisces Rising or Moon signs who got affected, along with the Scorpios and Aries folks.

This battle is an interesting one….Mars and Venus started duking it out while still both in the final degrees of the fixed fire sign LEO.  As of tomorrow, November 2nd, they will both move into earth sign VIRGO just about at the same time!  Venus moves into this, its sign of debilitation, at approximately 7:05 p.m. MST, and Mars moves into Virgo at 7:41 p.m. MST.  The fact that the malefic north node of the Moon, RAHU is already in Virgo, can add to the planetary confusion and discomfort. 

VIRGOS – While on the one hand, those with Virgo Rising or Moon signs in their Vedic charts, may feel some relief by having benefic VENUS now transit through this sign (versus when all those planets had been stacked up in their 12th house of loss and expenses), this planet is weaker than usual in its sign of debilitation here.  Still, it rules the money houses for Virgos, the 2nd house of wealth and the 9th house of good fortune, so surely there will be some better financial karma delivered, once the planetary war is over.  Mars gives energy and drive, but also can cause Virgos to act more angry and impatient. Mars joined with Rahu can give passionate actions that are based more on whim than on Virgo’s normal common sense and logic.  We cannot ignore that Mars also stands for “accidents” and being the ruler of Virgo’s 8th house of vulnerability can bring same to those with these rising or moon signs, I’d suggest have a plan to “sleep on” any decision made on a given day and rethink it in the calmness and clarity of the next morning’s light.  But be careful of hasty actions, in any case.

November 12 – Saturn goes combust the Sun. This means, as the Sun approaches Scorpio, the sign that Saturn has been sitting in for some time, the nearness by degrees intensifies the negative effect on Saturn.  This condition goes on until December 16, so those ruled by Saturn, which in the Vedic Astrology system are Capricorns and Aquarians may be “feeling the heat.”  The Sun is fiery hot and Saturn is a cool, stoic planet by nature. They are great enemies so it is not so great when they are transiting together, which brings us to:

November 16 – Both the Sun and Mercury move into fixed water sign Scorpio this day.  Mercury has been combust the Sun (i.e. traveling too close for comfort) since October 26.  By this date it will be at the same degree as the Sun and thus completely in meltdown status. Once again, this is not great for the signs ruled by Mercury: Virgo and Gemini.  And it’s not helpful for dealing with communication in general. Tactfulness and diplomacy could go by the wayside during this time in our usual human interactions. Mercury also stands for commerce so that would be negatively impacted as well, so business owners, take heed.  Better to watch our words than to regret them later. Thus Scorpio suddenly has a lot of action happening, with divergent and contradictory energies of these three planets moving through this sign for the next month. Those with Scorpio Rising or Moon signs, please take note, and try not to take personally some of the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” that the contrasting energies of Saturn and the Sun may deliver into your experience now.

November 29 – VENUS moves from Virgo into its own sign of LIBRA. In this movable air sign Venus regains its power and those ruled by Venus (Libra and Taurus Ascendants and Moon sign people) should feel a lot better now, more playful, outgoing, social and attractive. Even the Virgos benefit as the ruler of their 2nd house of wealth, family and speech is now happily situated right in that 2nd house. Bring on the cash flow, Venus!

Those are the key astrological movements of this month.  Of course when the Moon goes through Pisces from late on November 20 until late November 22, it will be conjunct with KETU, the malefic south node of the Moon. Whereas this can enhance the intuition and sensitivity which Pisces natives are already known for, it can also bring “hindrance and degradation” which are hallmarks of Ketu.  Since the Moon changes signs every 2.5 days, roughly, I do not take the time in these blog posts to write those up each month.

March 2015 Vedic Astrolology Planet Changes

March 7, 2015

Springtime Planet Movements – may they bless your journey.  http://www.vedicstarcharts.com

March 8, 2015 – MERCURY moves into fixed air sign Aquarius, where it is in a friend’s house.  Those with Gemini Rising or Moon signs in their natal charts, will enjoy having their chart ruler getting out of their 8th house of vulnerability and transformation, to now go into their BEST house of good luck, good fortune, dharma, remedies, and pilgrimage (9th house).  Those with Virgo Rising or Moon signs (Virgo is also ruled by Mercury), will not enjoy this change as much, as it is going from their 5th  house of success into their 6th house of worry, stress, anxiety, enemies, rivals and competitors.  You will need to use your intellect and tactfulness, Virgos, to handle situations that may arise during this transit.  Mercury will remain in this location until 3/27.

March 12, 2014 – Benefic VENUS now enters the fiery sign of Aries.  Those with Aries Ascendants and Moon signs, will benefit, as Venus owns their money houses!  The signs ruled by Venus are Taurus and Libra. The Taureans among us may tend to spend more money now, with Venus crossing their 12th house of loss and expenses. They could also feel more inward at this time. It could be an excellent time for some foreign travel, however. For Libras, Venus will be crossing their house of marriage, partners, business and travel, so any of these areas could become “lit up” in positive ways now.

March 14, 2015 – the SUN now moves into Pisces, where it joins Mars and Ketu, the south node of the Moon.  Those with Pisces Ascendants or Moon signs will be feeling more power and energy, while still having to handle the strong malefic energy of tricky Ketu.  At least this lunar node does bring an increase in intuition.  The Sun rules the fixed fire sign of Leo, and will now be crossing Leo’s 8th house.  Be prepared for some changes, all you “kings of the jungle”!  Your health could suffer if you do not take good care of yourself and get enough rest to balance all the activities you feel pulled to engage in. The same holds true for the Pisceans, since the Sun rules your 6th house of health problems, stress or worry and can bring those experiences to you, when it crosses your sign.

March 14, 2015 – on this same day, SATURN goes retrograde.  This is our slowest moving planet. It has been in the fixed water sign of Scorpio since November 2, 2014, when it began a two and a half year journey there.  This puts some strain on those with Scorpio rising or Moon signs. They will have to keep focused on work and duty, and be mindful of their responsibilities, in order to placate Saturn. Retrograde motion is the appearance of a planet “moving backwards” from our vantage point on planet Earth.  When a malefic planet like Saturn is retrograde, it can bring out more of its negative tendencies, which include grief, depression, separation, obstacles and delays.  Our attitude on how we handle these events now will make all the difference in how situations turn out in the long run.  Saturn rules the signs of Capricorn and Aquarius, thus those with these Rising signs or Moon signs may especially feel like something they’ve been working on could be undergoing some reversals now.  As Saturn does not do anything “fast,” it will remain in this retrograde status until August 1st.

March 23, 2015 – MARS enters its own sign of Aries, where it is strong.  Here it joins Venus (and even the Moon will be in Aries on this date), so those with Aries Rising or Moon signs will feel vivacious or sexy now,  and creative energies should be abundant. Mars rules Scorpio as well as Aries. Those with Scorpio Rising or Moon signs will have the situation of their planetary ruler crossing their 6th house of health issues now, plus the tendency to worry or deal with competitors. No worries, the Scorpios will surely feel competitive with Mars aspecting (looking back at) its own sign in this position.  Be careful of “the need for speed,” I say to both the Aries and Scorpios, for Mars also signifies accidents of various types, thus “haste makes waste” can truly apply here.

March 25, 2015 MERCURY goes combust the Sun once more. This means it is traveling so close to the Sun as to have its significations damaged by the heat of this Luminary.  It will remain in this condition until April 22nd.  Everyone will be well advised to watch that communication stays as smooth as possible, for this is one thing that Mercury signifies, as well as friendship, commerce, skin and nerves.  “Think before you speak” is a good adage to remember now, especially for those ruled by Mercury, i.e. the signs of Virgo and Gemini.

March 27, 2015 – MERCURY enters the dual water sign of Pisces. This is its sign of debilitation where it feels the weakest, actually.  It will remain here just until April 11th.  Here it joins its friend the Sun, as well as the malefic Ketu.  The qualities Mercury brings to Pisces are positive, despite the debilitation, bringing the desire to communicate (though Ketu may try and block that), as well as the potential to bring friends and partners closer.  For Virgos, this is their 7th house of business and partners, and for Geminis, it is their 10th house of action, career, name and fame, reputation, etc., so it is a positive house transit for both of these signs and those with these Ascendents or Moons.
