MERCURY AND MARS DIRECT–MOVING FORWARD AGAIN

MERCURY DIRECT IN CANCER AUGUST 18-SEPT 3

MARS STATIONARY DIRECT ON AUGUST 27TH IN CAPRICORN

Mercury went stationary direct in the US on Saturday night and so hopefully we have fewer of those problems now to deal with and communications can move forward.  Still it is not a picnic of a transit  because of aspects from Mars and conjunctions to Rahu. If you are born with an afflicted Mercury in  in Cancer, it  can cause restlessness, nervousness, impatience, constraints with emotions, open to giving undue compliments and subject to nervous disorders.  Mercury considers the moon and enemy and the planet of the intellect is not comfortable in the emotional realm creating mental confusion at times.

Mercury stays in Cancer until Sept...

FALL PREVIEW: THE END OF SATURN RETROGRADE SEPT 6TH

THE END OF SATURN RETROGRADE:  THE FINAL BATTLE

Saturn turns stationary direct on Sept. 6th and usually 9 days before this happens from August 28-Sept. 6th it is slowing down and being most intense. I usually find that that Saturn station is wonderful and powerful but about a week before the Saturn station, everything  is much more intense as it slows down.

Saturn gets a bad rap so we have to review it. The secret with Saturn is hard work and responsibility and that is not popular in our world by some.  The key around Saturn stations is to  avoid being scattered and to focus deeply to accomplish work and yet the tendency is to rush around too much and do things carelessly and then pay the price. Much of the Saturn retrograde has been  in Mula nakshatra (Sagittarius 0-13...

FALL PREVIEW: VENUS IN LIBRA SEPT. 2, 2018-JAN. 2, 2019

VENUS IN LIBRA: SEPTEMBER 1, 2018 – JANUARY 2, 2019

It’s Friday, ruled by Venus and a time to make sure you take time to have fun, enjoy relationships, do business marketing and rest.  While we still have the more difficult part of the Venus debilitation to get through until Sept. 2nd, I thought it would be good to focus on the upcoming fall transit of Venus.

Venus moves into Libra on Saturday, September 1st giving us a welcome breath of fresh air around relationships and supporting comfort. It’s a life saver and kicks in all kinds of wonderful energies including elegance, being well-respected, artistic creativity, balance in thought and deep, good intuition, passion, enthusiasm, comfort, luxury and humanitarian enterprises. Venus will be in conjunction with Mercury on October 15th...

SNEAK PREVIEW: JUPITER IN SCORPIO OCT 11, 2018- NOV 4, 2019

JUPITER IN SCORPIO: OCTOBER 11 – NOVEMBER 4, 2019

Not far from Sept and we are moving toward the fall and the fall astrology and so needing to start previewing it.

Jupiter moves into Scorpio, October 11, 2018, and stays there about 13 months. Jupiter and Mars are friends with Ketu the secondary ruler of Scorpio, also doing well with Jupiter. Except for a trinal aspect from Rahu in Cancer to Scorpio between late October and late November within 3-5 degrees, and combustion by the Sun from November 12 – December 9th, Jupiter is relatively unafflicted except by a Mars opposition in early May 2019.

When Jupiter is unafflicted it brings out active, competent, articulate energies and finds opportunities for growth...

RELATIONSHIP AND OWNER OF THE 7TH HOUSE BY SIGN: SOME KEYS

RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGES CONNECTED TO SIGN OWNERSHIP: SOME IMPORTANT LESSONS

WHAT DO SIGNS OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE REVEAL ABOUT COMPATIBILITY IN RELATIONSHIP AND THE LESSONS NEEDED?   

We can learn a lot about Vedic astrology in just realizing that the signs owning a particular house will color it in a very specific way.  Let’s examine this in the context of relationships.

While planets in signs are more powerful and have a stronger influence on the house, the rising sign and its 7th house owner can reveal a lot about dynamics.  Cancer and Leo rising always have trust issues with partners because Saturn owns the 7th house of Capricorn and Aquarius.  The following analysis is for rising signs but may overlap with Sun signs or Moon signs also.

SUN IN LEO–AUGUST 16-SEPT 15TH–RETURN OF THE KING

BUSY MONTH FOR THE SUN and LEO: August 17-Sept. 16th: The Complexity of Leadership, Ego and Independence.

The Sun is the heart of the Kala Purusha and everyone derives power and vitality and health from his benevolent rays. He represents, courage, valor, royalty, fatherhood, victory and success. He is at home and strong in his own sign of Leo and generally unafflicted except from a sneaky 30 degree aspect from Rahu in Cancer within 3 degrees which is exact around August 27th.

Leo is the sign of Individualization, a sign of majestic light and power and is the natural 5th sign of the zodiac which represents the creative urge of the Cosmic man to return to his Source...

INCOME FROM WORK–FULFILLING DESIRES IN THE 11TH HOUSE

SECRETS OF THE 11TH HOUSE: INCOME FROM WORK.

The 11th house is 2nd from the 10th so it represents gains from work. The sign owning the 11th house and planets associated with the 11th house (aspect, yoga, exchange of houses or planets in the house) will have an impact on your income tendencies and the dasha or period that you are running and transits may time that effect.  Moreover one often has to rotate the chart around the dasha lord to get the perspective for that period.  A gifted astrologer can help you with remedies to increase cash flow and understand your blind spots around finances.

Sometimes in our attempt to fulfill our desires, we run over others as might be the case with Rahu dominant in the chart or Mars and that may lead to generating difficult karma in the future life...

PERSONAL KARMA, SAVINGS AND OUR ABILITY TO HOLD ONTO MONEY AND THE 2ND HOUSE

SECRETS OF THE 2ND HOUSE :   THE STOREHOUSE OF WEALTH

While the 2nd house is often discussed as a money house, in Vedic astrology is is called Dhana Bhava meaning storage or food. It is more connected with savings than the ability to earn money and it is more connected to family wealth and family relationships.  There becomes a complex interaction between food, money and family that deeply shape our lives, eating habits and habits around money.  In this two part article, we will explore these issues.

The 2nd house and our desire for wealth creates an impulse for us  to set our mark in the world by moving beyond the inherited wealth of our family and creating our own material legacy or we just become a family...

SUN IN TRANSITION TOWARD LEO–PURGING THE EGO AND TOXINS

EYE ON THE SKY: SUN MOVING TOWARD LEO AUGUST 12-16TH AND INTO LEO AUGUST 16-SEPT. 15TH

It Sunday and the highlight of the week is the Sun at  the end of Cancer and getting ready to go into Leo on August 16th at 8 pm CDT.  Today the Sun is conjunct the eclipse point at 25 degrees Leo on a Sunday so there may be more of an eclipse hangover with fatigue, lower digestive energy and emotional grunge.  The Sun is in the deepest gandanta point located between 29.20-0.40 and in election astrology and Muhurtha, and that is on August 16-17 and it is considered inauspicious because the Sun is in transition and clearing out the energy of the past month and getting ready for the energy of the Sun in Leo.

The Cancer gandanta is August 14-16th (Cancer 27-30) with the max. energy point  (Cancer 29...
