Jupiter and Venus Dominate

There is little planetary activity in October so we can breathe a sigh of relief after so much drama of the summer. Many festivals are celebrated in October so let us enjoy the festivities.

It is the last month of Jupiter in Scorpio where he enjoys alone time as when he moves into Sagittarius next month, Saturn and Ketu are there. Venus is powerful in Libra and Saturn Ketu separating. Venus helps debilitated Sun. Much easier month than the last few, though watch for Jupiter in gandanta at the end of the month.

Key Dates in October are:

NAVARATRI (Until October 7)

  • 3rd – Venus moves into Libra
  • 13th - Purnima tithi – Full Moon in Revati nakshatra
  • 17th - Sankranti – Sun moves into Libra and is debilitated Karva Chauth
  • 24th – Mercury first dip into Scorpio
  • 25th – Dhanteras – Dhanvantri and Goddess Lakshmi’s birthday
  • 27thAmavasya tithi ends in New Moon at 10º Libra Swati
  • 31st – Jupiter in Scorpio Gandanta

NOTE: All timing is for California/West Coast PST.

Jupiter’s Last Hurrah in Scorpio

As Jupiter gets ready to leave Scorpio, he is in a generous mood, and you can expect gifts and opportunities. Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Pisces will be especially empowered. It is the last month for Jupiter being on its own where he can exercise his independent influence. From November onwards, Saturn and Ketu are in Sagittarius so their impact will be ever-present.

31st October – Jupiter goes into gandanta and is unsettled. Jupiter Gandanta can affect world issues. The gandanta lasts for eight days, and we need to watch its destabilizing impact. Jupiter had a long gandanta in March – April, and now this repeat gandanta will address issues that were dominant then.

The Blessing of Venus in Libra

3 to 27 October 2019

Venus is in full dignity in ints own sign from 3 to 27 October. It will lift the energy up for all. The feel-good factor gives boosts to relationships and promotes love.

Venus will create Mlavya Mahapurusha and shower blessings of goddess Lakshmi of wealth and good fortune for Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. It is expressly excellent transit for Libra who has had a challenging few months. Now they can bask in the beneficence of Venus.

Debilitated Sun

17th October to 16 November

Sun does his annual foray in Libra from 17 October to 16 November. Sun is farthest from the earth during its transit in Libra and it lacks vigour. However, this year as Venus is also in Libra to 27 October; it is uplifting its energy and cancelling the weakness. We will start feeling its impact after 27 October. Sun deals with confidence and brings light to our life so that we can see our issues. All of us will lack a bit of confidence and try to balance the opposite ends and not finding any solutions.

Leo feels the debilitation most – they need to watch their health, plan a new personal regime and take time out to rejuvenate. Indecisiveness can block you from making any decisions.
