September begins with several positive planets, Sun in Leo, Mercury in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Jupiter in Pisces, and mostly there is minimal conflict. It does not last – as Mercury turns retrograde on 10 September. Towards the end of the month, Mercury and Venus combust, they get involved in planetary war, and Venus gets debilitated. We need to plan accordingly. Enjoy now and then be cautious towards the end of the month.
The videos on my YouTube channel keep you updated on all the major planetary transitions; you can watch them via the following link:
Ganesha Visarjan on Ananta Chaturdashi – Chaturdashi is the 14th lunar tithi of the bright half, the day of Ganesha Visarjan; the celebrations of Ganesha Chaturthi end with the immersion of the Ganesha Statue in the river or sea. It is believed that when the idol of the Ganesha is taken out for immersion, it also takes away with it the various obstacles we experience. The Visarjan destroys these obstacles as Lord Ganesha takes them away.
Mercury turns retrograde 14°45 Virgo, Hasta Nakshatra (until 2 October).
Full Moon 23°30 Aquarius, Purva Bhadra Nakshatra 9:58 am.
