Venus is Libra, Saturn out of Gandanta

Saturn finally moves into Sagittarius and ends his indecision of 2017. This can bring major changes to life as Saturn is now committed to a course of action. Rahu Ketu and its Kal Sarpa continues to bite. Venus move into Libra brings strength, balance and feel good energy that has been lacking lately. Venus and Jupiter are regarded as Gurus, divine teachers in Vedic Astrology – their togetherness can mean that there is difference of opinion on major issues, it can also give too much knowledge that an average person scrambles to cope with it.

Saturn in Sagitarius

Saturn finally makes a decisive move into Sagittarius and will remain there till 23 January 2020. It is now in sattvic pure Sagittarius, therefore will aim to change from being stuck in negativity to taking positive actions. This change is not going to be without pain, as Saturn will have the desire to destroy old ways of thinking and open us to new ideas and thoughts. Saturn always stands for truth and those of us who are following the path of truth will find these changes easier to deal with.

Sagittarius Ascendant, Moon Sun will feel it most. Pressures both a home and work will be immense, they need to make allowances – do not think that they will not be impacted.

Taurus is experiencing Ashtama Shani now. This brings unexpected changes for them, they are faced with situations they did not plan for, their actions can have unexpected resulted. Taurus is a fixed sign and they generally do not like change so will feel this. It is a good idea to be prepared for the unexpected, so it does not come as a surprise.

Sade Sati, the seven and half year Saturn transit connected to the Moon ends for Libra Moon and begins for Capricorn Moon. Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn Moon are in Sade Sati. Sagittarius are in the most intense phase. In 2017 and 2018 – If you Moon is up to 17° Sagittarius are feeling the direct impact of Saturn. This is very pressurized time and be cautious in all your choices. Responsibilities can pile up.

Capricorn has Saturn transiting their 12th house so it may be encouraging them to watch expenses. A good time to look towards their spiritual needs.

Aquarius will enjoy financial success as Saturn is in their 11th house.

Venus in Libra Brings Balance

Venus in Libra from 2 to 26 November 2017. When planets are in their own signs, they help the general atmosphere we live in. Supports all and after the tough October we have experienced, this is a welcome relief.

Venus creates transit Malavya Mahapurusha yoga for Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. As this yoga is by transit, we must use this positive energy during the time it exists and choices that it opens.

Libra enjoys this transit the most, they feel blessed and supported – many opportunities open.

Aries find relationships are loving and caring.

Cancer feel happy and secure. They may get opportunities at home and is good time to work on their property and cars. Good relationship with mother.

Capricorn focus professionally. There may be doorways to success. Do not say no to opening that come in this month.

Mercury Mars Exchanges Signs

Mars is in Virgo exchanges signs with Mercury in Scorpio up to 24 November. When planets exchange signs they can bring many positive results depending on your personal chart.

Gemini and Virgo may face this as a challenging exchange. The impulsiveness of Mars does not always blend with the thinking Gemini and Virgo. Gemini may find life unsettled and watch for dispute with your mother. Virgo needs to be careful while taking initiatives – are they being too impulsive and moving in directions they had not given enough consideration to.

Aries may find their actions create obstacles and they can invite challenges if they are not careful. Best to remain conscious and careful. Scorpio find this exchange very positive and financially beneficial.

Taurus, Leo, Capricorn and Pisces get good support and the other’s point of view helpful. Cancer, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius need to remain caution, change is not good for them and impulsiveness should be avoided.

Rahu Ketu Kal Sarpa Continues

Rahu Ketu create Kal Sarpa Yoga when they hem in the planets. We will experience Kal Sarpa every month from 17 September 2017 to 18 January 2018 (please note by mistake this date was given as 8 Jan in the previous newsletter). Moon will break the yoga for a fortnight and then we are again experience this yoga. Kal Sarpa can create many unexpected and at times painful situations. We must remain grounded and work towards balance in these unsettled times.

10 to 25 November - Kal Sarpa Yoga is on. This can be potentially destabilizing time. All planets are within Ketu in Capricorn and Rahu in Cancer. However, the strength of Venus and Saturn out of Gandanta, helps us deal with it in a better way. If you can defer major decisions till Kal Sarpa is off, please do.
