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.

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

JULY, 2017 – Planet Movements in the Vedic Sky

July 3, 2017

For the Summer, your Sunshine Corner is enjoying Boulder, CO, where I lived for 18 years. Great to be seeing so many friends here again. So if you are in Colorado and want an in-person reading with me while I’m here, please call me. 928-284-4060 or 928-821-6946. Thanks and starry blessings.

How’s everyone feeling now that Saturn has retrograded back into the sign of Scorpio?  It seems like my friends with a Scorpio natal Moon are feeling it the most. A reading can tell exactly how this sometimes severe “Tester” may affect you during this transit. At least it is better for the Capricorns, to have the ruler of their charts once again crossing the house of gain and income instead of its earlier time in Sagittarius, the house of loss and expenditure for them.

July 2nd – MERCURY entered Cancer where it will stay until July 20th.  This is a nice setup for the Gemini Rising and Moon chart folks to connect with family, friends, and funds. There should be a nice flow of communication and cash coming in from this transit. For the Virgos, also ruled by Mercury, it is also a positive placement. Mercury here connects them to gain, income and fulfillment of desires.  Enjoy it while it lasts!  It’s a bit of a mixed blessing for the Cancerians, whose sign is hosting Mercury. It can bring 12th house losses, expenditures, some isolation, but also energize the desire to communicate or write, including some contact with siblings, which should be positive, in most cases.

July 3rd – MERCURY goes non-combust the Sun, which is beneficial for Geminis, Virgos and most everyone’s communication, which can now flow more easily and we can all feel more understanding as we interact with others.

July 11th – MARS enters Cancer, its sign of debilitation. This annual event brings out the worst in Mars, though it MAY bring some energy to Cancer Ascendant and Moon people, as it is their Yogakaraka, or best planet.  The negative end of the spectrum of Mars energy can show up as irritation, quarrlesomeness, anger, restlessness. So for those ruled by this fiery malefic, Scorpio and Aries, these are some qualities you may experience until Mars moves into Leo on August  26th.  When not at its best, Mars can cause rash actions, ambition that goes out of bounds in terms of civility. You get the picture.  Stay cool, figuratively and literally, to control this overheated time now.

July 16th –  The SUN enters Cancer. Here it is in a friend’s sign for a one month period.  Those with Leo Rising or Moon signs may enjoy some foreign travel now, or going on a retreat or meditation course.  The Cancerians should find this placement good for bringing in more cash and greater closeness with some family members.

July 20th – MERCURY enters Leo on this date, helping to make the Lions of the zodiac more talkative.  It is a helpful transit for them, too, for attracting income, gain, various financial dealings going well, etc.  For Geminis, the ruler of their charts now passing through third house brings on more projects to keep their minds and sharp intellects busy.  For Virgos, also ruled by Mercury, it is not so positive a transit, as feelings of isolation may come up, and not as much action on the career level, as they would desire.

July 26th – VENUS transits Gemini now, and this lasts until August 20th.  This helps the sign of the Twins feel more social and playful, and may bring some romance to the front burner.  It can increase business for the Virgos.  It’s good for Taureans, ruled by this great benefic Venus, to have it crossing their 2nd house of wealth, family and communication.  It is a great improvement for Librans, also ruled by Venus, to have the lord of their chart get out of the 8th (most challenging) house of transformation and vulnerability where nothing feels very stable or steady, to now go into their 9th (best) house of good luck, good fortune, Natural Law, Pilgrimages and remedies.

The following two months are going to be real doozies, with so much intense planetary energy happening then. We have the two eclipses in August to deal with, and the one on August 21st will be a TOTAL solar eclipse, visible in the USA, so we get the impact of that.  Mercury will go retrograde on August 12th and combust the Sun on August 19th.  Saturn will go Direct motion on August 25th.

September brings sign changes for the two nodes of the Moon (Rahu and Ketu) on the 9th and Jupiter moves to Libra on September 11th.  These are significant shifts for planets which only change signs every 18 months and 12 to 13 months, respectively. Let’s see what it will mean for you.

Blessings of the planets to you, from the Sunshine Corner.  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. 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

December Planets 2016 by Mary Stevenson, Vedic Astrologer

December 4, 2016

December 2nd – The month begins with VENUS moving into Capricorn on the 2nd, staying in this Earth sign until Dec. 28th

Now it is traveling with Mars. They both give positive qualities to those with Capricorn Rising or Moon signs. The good results range from attracting friends and supporters, to getting a better position, making money, and success in general, even with games of chance. Enjoy it while it lasts!

December 11 – MARS moves into Aquarius.  It stays here until January 20, 2017. Even during its stay in the previous sign of Capricorn, Mars was doing an “exchange of houses” with Saturn, who has long been sitting in Scorpio, ruled by Mars. Both Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn. The good news about this upcoming move into the fixed Air sign, is that Mars will get away from Saturn’s aspect, and thus be more comfortable, in that regard. The “other news” though, is that in Aquarius, Mars will be traveling with malefic KETU (the south node of the Moon), which makes for a trickier passage. 

Mars and Ketu will be at the same degree on December 26th. Since Ketu is an “upagraha” (a planet without a body), it absorbs the energies of whatever planet in which it may be in conjunction, as well as those giving an aspect (looking at it). There are some astrologers making a very big deal about this conjunction and warning people to avoid traveling the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Some of these astrologers throw in the influence of the outer planets (Neptune, Uranus and Pluto) which we do NOT use in Vedic Astrology. 

Yes, Mars can cause accidents, draw blood, represent violence, anger, temper and the like. To me, as far as individuals go, it depends entirely on what the sign of Aquarius represents in your own natal chart. If you have Aquarius Rising or Moon sign, yes, it would pay to be cautious. If you are a  Scorpio Rising or Moon sign, Mars and Ketu will be transiting your 4th house of vehicles, so yes, be careful. Once you have a reading with me, you will know what this sign represents in your own chart and thus, how to plan accordingly.

As always, I urge everyone to listen to his or her own intuition.  Could there be some terrorist activity in this cycle? There may be. For malefic RAHU will be aspecting Mars, from Rahu’s position in Leo. Whenever Mars and Rahu interact there can be fireworks, drama and generally not a good time had by all.

December 15 – The SUN enters Sagittarius, for its one month transit in this fire sign. This will be a nice change, from the Sun’s point of view, to get out of the same sign as its enemy, Saturn.  I expect Leos to feel better, with less restrictions here, and greater success, as the ruler of their chart will be crossing their 5th house. Perhaps governmental functions will also start flowing more smoothly then. Saturn’s influence has been tossing in some obstacles, delays and criticism, for the previous 30 days.

December 19 – MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE, until January 8, 2017. This marks the FOURTH Mercury retrograde period of 2016. Virgos and Geminis are used to taking measures to accommodate the apparent “things going backwards” effect of such a transit. Since Mercury rules communication and commerce, we all feel the impact, so we’ll want to keep in mind the need to be as tactful and diplomatic as possible – it won’t be easy, but let’s try!

December 22 – Mercury goes combust the Sun. This is a period of Mercury traveling too close to this fiery orb and thus some of its get qualities get singed a bit. That does include interpersonal communication, diplomacy, tactfulness and anything connected to communications equipment. This influence will last until January 2, 2017, so Virgos and Geminis especially, take note.

December 26 – Saturn gets out of combustion with the Sun. This is most helpful to those with Capricorn or Aquarius Ascendants or Moon signs. It has been combust since November 23, which makes any planet more grumpy, angry, and unable to present its best side and provide its best benefits.  Thus we should also see improvement in the career fields that are ruled by Saturn, from laborers to police personnel.

December 28 – VENUS enters Aquarius. Here it joins Mars and Ketu, and Venus will stay in this fixed Air sign until January 27, 2017, when it enters Pisces, its sign of exaltation. While traveling with Mars and Ketu in Aquarius, it does bring some sweetness to the planetary mix here, for Venus is Yogakaraka (best planet) for those with Aquarius Rising.

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

NOVEMBER STARS: Election Edition by Mary Stevenson

October 31, 2016

Below you will find my regular report on planet movements for this upcoming month, but first a discussion of a presidential candidate’s birth chart, which may be of interest:

Donald Trump – and why his planets show it is doubtful he could ever become president. It is a very interesting study, with some unusual findings. I am not taking a partisan stand here, just explaining what I see in his chart, including a major shift into a new maha dasha for him right at the time of the election.

Finding his birth data easily online, his Vedic birth chart shows a Leo Rising, with Mars in that first house. This explains a lot about his reddish complexion and hair color, in fact.  On the positive end of the scale, Mars can bring the owner of such a chart energy, courage, being very active, having ambition and drive, and initiative to get things done…especially when added to the fact that the Sun, ruler of his chart, is in the 10th house of power, name and fame. But wait, there’s more!  Mars is his BEST (or yogakaraka) planet and does explain his many successes with real estate as well. 

On the negative end of the scale, Mars gives anger, rash behavior, irritability and quarrelsomeness. This Mars is also aspecting (looking at/throwing its energy on) his Moon (which stands for mind and emotions) which sits in his 4th house of friends, supporters, mother, and self-confidence.  This Moon is in terrible shape, being in its sign of debilitation and – the biggest issue of all – HE WAS BORN ON THE VERY DAY OF A TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE!!! This casts a lifelong shadow on his thinking and reasoning process.  It makes his feelings hyper-sensitive, as we have seen demonstrated by his reaction to the least slight or insult he may feel.

Mr. Trump’s Sun (ruler of his chart) sits in fixed earth sign of Taurus (ALL of the main considerations of his chart are fixed signs, making him very stubborn), in the 10th house of power with malefic Rahu, the north node of the moon and legendary head of the cosmic serpent. Since this shadow planet is called “the seizer” this explains a LOT of Mr. Trump’s behavior, even his own admissions on that video of how he cannot resist grabbing women.  Rahu surely did grab onto some name and fame, and personal power for him – at least for its 18 year reign. But that is coming to a quick close here.

My Vedic Astrology teacher taught us that at the end of its 18 year personal planetary cycle in an individual’s chart it “takes away all that it has given during that time” – I have seen that befall long time clients of mine, in very tangible terms.  Always at the end of Rahu’s cycle, the antardasha (second level of dasha) is Mars – so his anger issues are greatly activated now.

WHEN DOES IT END?  If his birth time is correct, his Rahu maha dasha (major cycle) would end on November 14th, just days after the election.  But we have already seen a lot of his fame falling away in terms of the many women coming forward to testify about his treatment of them, which they were afraid to bring up until this time. They are correct; when Rahu was in full power, they would have probably found no ears to listen. But now, the waning of the Rahu influence has begun.

Since we are all here to learn and grow, and as souls choose these paths that we have laid out for ourselves, I marvel at how much Mr. Trump’s personality so dislikes “losing” or those he considers to be “losers.” What an irony then, as we most likely will see him “LOSE” something he seems to have really wanted. Or does he?

No tears need be shed for Mr. Trump. He goes next into a Jupiter maha dasha. His Jupiter is placed in the second house of wealth and “communication” – the rumors we hear of him getting his own television network are probably true. He will not stop talking, though that talking may be toned down a lot. Jupiter rules his house of “other people’s money” and sits in his house of wealth, so there will still be no lack of financial success for him.

So there we have it. To sum up: the ego of the Leo rising (out of control since malefic Rahu sits on it and creates chaos in many of his actions); the debilitated and totally eclipsed Moon, causing emotional hyper-sensitivity. Mars in the first house causing the anger issues and aspecting his natal Moon as well, tell the story. By the way, it would be fascinating to have an inside look at his relationship with his mother, which appears quite karmic to me. But that would take too long to go into here.  I do not feel that America would benefit to have anyone born on a total Lunar eclipse, with such emotional instability issues related to that, becoming our Commander in Chief.  We shall see, but I simply do not feel it is likely…as Rahu takes away what it has given him, for the past 18 years.

Now back to our regular programming and a look at the movements of the planets for November:

11/06 – VENUS moves into Sagittarius, bringing those with this Rising or Moon sign more enjoyment, pleasure and a desire for entertainment. There can be a tendency to be over-indulgent for some Sags now. Venus rules Taurus and Libra. It now goes into the 8th house for our Taurus friends, and that can increase a feeling of being vulnerable or just having to go through some uncomfortable changes. For Librans, it’s their 3rd house so that’s fine; they may get more involved in creative, artistic projects now.

11/08 – Mercury enters Scorpio. This can help bring in some income for those with Scorpio Rising or Moon charts, but also some changes as it rules their 8th house, too, in addition to the 11th house of gain and income. For those ruled by Mercury, Virgos and Geminis, it works out like this:  it’s the 3rd house for Virgos, so they will keep busy working away. For Geminis, it represents the 6th house of stress and worry, so not a positive a transit for them.

11/15 – The SUN enters Scorpio for a one month transit. Too bad Saturn is still transiting there as those two are not comfortable hanging out that closely.  Scorpios, just keep working hard and the Sun, ruling your 10th house of career, power, name and fame, can be helpful here to get things done. Just watch out for getting overheated on any level.

11/21 – MERCURY gets out of combustion with the Sun, which it has been in since October 7th.  This brings relief to Virgos, Geminis and to interpersonal communication across the board.

11/23 – SATURN goes combust the Sun.  Your turn, Capricorns and Aquarians, to “feel the burn” as your ruling planet travels too close to this fiery orb.  Keep your usual cool, and try and not and let it get under your skin. This period lasts until December 26th.

11/28 – MERCURY moves into Sagittarius. It joins its friend Venus there to add to the party for the Sags.  For Virgos, it is your 4th house that the ruler of your chart will now be traveling through. That works to connect you to friends and supporters. For Geminis, it is your 7th house of partners, travel and business, so will be an improvement over the previous transit.

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.
