Big planetary shifts in Vedic Astrology
Peace Out – September 18th!
Mars leaves Saturn & Venus enters Libra
September brings peace and harmony to the cosmos with the entry of Venus into its Vedic sign of Libra on the 18th. After its previous sojourn in its debilitated sign of Virgo, Venus in Libra means that relationships take a turn for the better for everyone, and those with Taurus or Libra in their charts can get their mojo back in motion and experience improved health and energy.
The 3 to 4 weeks after September 18th bring an increased appreciation to all things beautiful and balanced, and favor all artistic and creative pursuits, as well as healing any relationship difficulties by understanding the value of reciprocal compromise. Make peace and love!
And speaking of peace, on the same day (September 18th), Mars finally ends its bad boy association with Saturn in Scorpio and moves into the Vedic sign of Sagittarius, favoring spiritual practices and re-igniting your yoga practice.
This ending of the Scorpionic dance between Saturn and Mars should open up the possibilities for forgiveness and healing and a lessening of violent emotional outbreaks. Mars (as do all planets) behaves well in the philosophical sign of Sagittarius, and with the peaceful presence of Venus in Libra starting on the same day, it looks like a great change of season is in the works with the Fall equinox.
Only Three More Weeks, Mr. Mercury
Mercury retrograde until September 22nd
With all the peace and love tidings this month, Mercury is going to remind you that don’t take anything for granted. It began its third retrograde this year at the very end of August, and it’s going to feel like things are going backwards until September 22nd.
If you are looking for a silver lining in this cloud of Mercury retrograde, take heart that it is occurring in the Vedic sign of Virgo, the best sign for Mercury to be in. Yet I am betting that one thing that happens now is the incessant re-working of details and neurotic over-analyzing of every decision. But, hey, I could be wrong.
If it does seems like Mercury is always messing with you more, we do actually have the rare privilege(!) of four Mercury retrograde periods this year (each one last about 3 weeks) so for 2016 it is like 25% of our life is spent losing our phone, locking our keys in our cars, and crashing our computer software (to say nothing about being able to say anything right the first time).
And you can’t even escape it by going on a trip (unless you made your trip plans before it went retrograde).
I think it’s time to go back and work on your unfinished projects, re-read a good book, clean out your closet, and just plan to leave your house 5 minutes early so you’ll have time to go back inside and get what you will likely forget.
Coming Next Month: Venus Meets Saturn in Scorpio!
Better take a passion pill.
