My apologies for the delay in the planetary news – I am on a grand temple tour and conference and was not able to do it. Finally, I am doing it in Chennai so I am combining February and March.
February is an exceptional month with many planets in their own signs or exalted – Jupiter in Sagittarius, Saturn in Capricorn and Venus is exalted. However, we must take care during Mercury retrograde and Mars Ketu conjunction.
March is more unsettled than February with Capricorn becoming a dominating sign as Jupiter and Mars both go into it at the end of the month. We will experience an upbeat Venus in Taurus for an extended time from 28 March and an intermittent Kal Sarpa also.
NOTE: All timing is for California PST.
Venus moves into Taurus bringing Malavya Mahapurusha yoga by transit and blessings of goddess Lakshmi for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. It brings success, the wealth of many kinds and opportunities.
March ends with Mars and Jupiter moving into Capricorn and Saturn already resident - three planets will be in Capricorn. Mars will be exalted, Saturn in its own sign and though Jupiter is debilitated, it is Vargottama. Three important planets in Capricorn will put an extraordinary emphasis on it and its agenda. Capricorn is democratic and egalitarian; it does not have time for ego and autocracy – you will see many egos crushed during this period. Those in power will need to listen to the ordinary person.
Mars Saturn conjunction on 31 March and planetary war from 30 March to 2 April can be particularly trying for all of us.
The best way to deal with this transit is to be humble, realistic, practical, keep your feet on the ground and be reasonable. All the planets are strong, even debilitated Jupiter is Vargottama, but they must follow Saturn’s rules. Less is more, avoid overspending, give back to your family, society, world and you can achieve a lot. Saturn gives nothing for free and neither does Capricorn, if you make the efforts, you get rewards. If there are some difficulties or obstacles, take them in your stride and remain calm.
Destabilising Kal Sarpa Yoga happens when Rahu Ketu hem in the planets. This is only possible when Jupiter and Saturn are on one side of the Rahu Ketu axis. This is an unsettling transit and we have to be careful that we do not voluntarily make our life uncertain. At times, we have no choice; however, being extra cautious with the choices you make and taking care in making every decision is the key to dealing with it successfully.
Rahu Ketu are in Gemini Sagittarius and all planets are in their grip.
When Moon breaks the Kal Sarpa, it is Kemadruma or isolated – so our emotions are volatile and we can feel lonely and unsure.
