VENUS IN LEO: SEPT. 15-OCT 8TH: ROYAL LOVE AND ARTISTRY

EYE ON THE SKY: VENUS IN LEO

Venus moved into Leo today and joins Mars and the Sun with the Sun moving on Sunday into Virgo and Mars far enough away for now not to be a huge problem.  Venus in Leo can amplify feelings and passion  and support the business of art and getting acclaim in shows or being more successful with art sales. It also support actors and actresses and our love of luxuries , beauty and will promote strong affections.

As it moves toward the Mars conjunction into Oct. 5th and into the same constellation of Mars in Purva Phalguni (Leo 13.20-26.40) after Sept...

THE SNAKE IN TIME: KALA SARPA YOGA IN TRANSIT STARTS SEPT 17TH

EYE ON ASTROLOGY: KALA SARPA YOGA IN TRANSIT

Kala Sarpa yoga is  when Rahu and Ketu contain all the planets between them inclusively in the zodiac but a single planet going out of the axis, negates it.   So between Sunday, Sept. 17th  and Feb. 3rd, all the planets are hemmed in between Rahu in Cancer  and Ketu in Capricorn.  When  the Venus  crosses into Leo on Sept. 15th and the Moon moves into Leo on Sunday, Sept. 17th,  this will happen in transit every two weeks whenever the moon is transiting  between end of Cancer  and the end of Capricorn.  The yoga is broken when the moon goes into Aquarius and until it gets to Rahu in Cancer every two weeks. This   yoga will continue until  Feb. 3rd  when the Sun  transits past Ketu ...

VENUS CONJUNCT RAHU IN CANCER: SEPT. 14-18–SENSUAL OBSESSION

EYE ON THE SKY: VENUS CONJUNCT RAHU

Venus, the planet of luxury, beauty and sensual pleasure, is friends with Rahu, the planet of desire. They are good friends and their conjunction into Thursday  and three degree orb over the  weekend can increase sensual desire for sweets, sexual activity, shopping or going on a buying spree. Venus will go into Leo on Sept. 15th but will still be close to Rahu as there are no brick walls in the sky or electric fences between signs.  Be aware of this aspect because the tendency may be to over-eat too many sweets or not be satisfied by your partner–no matter how often they are there. It can also create overspending if you feel a lack from not getting enough sensual attention...

JUPITER IN LIBRA PART 2: IMPACT OF THE NEXT YEAR BY RISING AND MOON SIGNS

JUPITER IN LIBRA BY RISING SIGN

 

In Part 1, we discussed the general energy for Jupiter in Libra for everyone with this transit having an impact until Oct. 11, 2018.

In Vedic astrology transits are often counted from the Moon because they impact the mind most but I find that transits from the ascendant are better at predicting material existence and even transits from the Sun should not be ignored for  the same reason for their impact on career and the material world.

When malefics like Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu reside in Libra or aspect Libra I your natal chart or when they impact Libra in transit as Mars will do so Nov. 30-Jan. 17th, then the darker side of the transit may manifest.

Uranus continues to aspect Libra all year and exactly into Sept. 27thth ...

SATURN SQUARE SUN: SEPT. 13TH–ANXIETY AND TENSION WITH AUTHORITY

EYE ON THE SKY: SATURN SQUARE SUN

Saturn squares the Sun exactly (10th house aspect) which often creates governmental upheaval with leadership and this is happening on Wednesday, Sept. 13th as the Sun is moving toward the end of Leo and Saturn is in the volatile drowning zone where emotional upheaval and difficult problems seem to be eternal.   We have a lot of that going on with the flooding in Florida and South Carolina.  The ugly side of ego can surface and also anger can flare up so find ways to be kind to people, accept mistakes and do not fight government authority by speeding down the highway if you are prone to traffic tickets or pay your tax bills on time. Anger around government can really be driven to the surface...

MARS/MERCURY PLANETARY WAR: SEPT. 15-17TH

Mercury is losing   is winning  the planetary war with Mars  from about 4 pm   CDT on Sept 15th  until about 10 pm   on Sept 16th  so a good few days to hunker down if you are in a Mars/Mercury or Mercury/Mars period.   Mars wins the war from late Saturday night into about 10 pm on Sunday night, Sept. 17th.  Geminis and Virgos are very vulnerable when Mars is winning the war on Sunday and Scorpios and Aries are vulnerable on Friday/Saturday . Even if you are winning the war, you you still might feel tired and beat up from fighting too much.

With Mars ruling Tuesday and Mercury ruling Wednedsays, its important to be alert the next few days.

The combination of Mercury and Mars can bring up disputes and arguments so remember not to argue in t...

JUPITER IN LIBRA:  SEPT. 11, 2017-OCT. 11, 2018: JOY IN DOING IT TOGETHER

Its official today so we thought we would reprint our article about Jupiter moving into Libra.

Jupiter transits into Libra Sept. 11th for 13 months until Oct.11, 2018  and Jupiter transits usually bring a shift in luck and grace to new areas of our life.  Jupiter’s always  expands our experiences, our wisdom, and our understanding. It  represents optimism, growth, generosity, joy, and abundance.

What is the sign of Libra about?  Wherever Libra falls in your chart in any rising or varga chart, it brings blessings of prosperity and Laksmi, the grace to end con...

DEALING WITH DIFFICULT TRANSITS : STORMS OF EMOTION–AGAIN–SIGH

EYE ON HEALING: DEALING WITH DIFFICULT TRANSITS

If you turn on your TV and watch hurricane coverage you are going to be caught in the media’s fear fortex as they try to increase ratings. Turn off your TV.  Feeding fear never helps anyone.   Hurricane Irma is catastrophic and our prayers go out to everyone and we have suggested being active with donations and support on every level possible.

Jupiter is changing signs on Monday and even if there is grace there, I think it does take away a bit more of our faith and trust in the Divine at this time as Jupiter is between two signs, Virgo and Libra. ...

ASTROLOGICAL WEATHER FORECAST: SEPT/OCTOBER –WHEN WILL IT BE OVER?

EYE ON THE SKY: SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER HIGHLIGHTS

Our hearts go out to the troubled people of Florida, the Caribbean, Texas and Mexico, Bangladesh, Northern India  as there have been too many natural disasters in too short a period of time.  I do not think the Apocalypse is upon us. As I mentioned yesterday, natural disaster are an opportunity for those of us not impacted to help those who are.  Our humanity rises up when are compassion swells to new levels to reach out when we might not normally do so. This is a time to donate to your favorite charities, reach out those you love in troubled areas and if you are young and capable to volunteer and get trained to do relief work.

Many of my colleagues have discussed how an Eclipse going over a region can trigger problems in that area for 6 mont...

REVISIT: RAHU IN CANCER/KETU IN CAPRICORN SEPT 2017-MARCH 2019

EYE ON THE SKY: RAHU IN CANCER/KETU IN CAPRICORN

The North and South Nodes, Rahu and Ketu, which create eclipses, govern our desire nature in the material world and desire to leave the world and discover the Divine. In the true node system, Rahu transits into Cancer on Sept 9th  and Ketu into Capricorn on Sept 9th. I prefer true nodes for transits but it is still a big transition and will have a huge impact until March 2019.  (For those who like the mean node system, they have been in there since August 17)

Rahu and the Moon are enemies as Rahu is friends with Mercury and exalted in Gemini and would rather work on the intellectual realm. In the sign of Cancer it will bring up phobias and fears and have more discomfort with feelings...
