ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 25: Planet of Communication Mercury’s Journey to Scorpio Zodiac: A Vedic Astrology Analysis

mercury

Mercury is the planet for communications and intelligence. Mercury is the smallest and the innermost planet in the solar system, which revolves round the Sun with an orbital period of 88 days. It is named after the Roman deity Mercury, which is the messenger to the Gods. This planet revolves close to Sun and never exceeds 28 degree from the Sun.

Astrologically, this is a very fast moving planet and signifies movement, intelligence and communication of all types. Mercury is a benefic planet but its results depend on its position in the Ascendant Chart. Mercury in the 6th house, 8th house and the 12th house is not so beneficial, if not placed in its own sign of Gemini or Virgo. This planet is extremely fast and hence sometimes produces profligate results.

The body part ruled by Mercury is the nervous system, since it deals with communication and nerves, which carries the instruction from the brain. So, malefic mercury may cause nervous disorder and sudden panic attacks. Rahu if placed with malefic mercury may lead to major anxiety attacks. On the other hand, a well-placed Rahu with benefic Mercury can take one to great heights in the communication domain, writing, skilled speaking or can become a great restaurant owner or information technology person, astrologers etc.

Mercury’s day is Wednesday and its direction is North. The mahadasha of Mercury is for 17 years. Mercury is currently in the Vishakha Nakshatra of Jupiter in Scorpio. Mercury will affect different ascendants in various ways. Given below is an analysis:

  1. Aries Ascendant/Moon Sign: Mercury has entered your 8th house. One may get philosophical in approach and may become analytical. These people will suddenly become immensely curious on various things and will go deep into the crux of the situation by communicating or reading. This transit may lead to sudden statements which may harm the native. However, malefic impacts of Mercury in eighth house may cause eye problems, vein problems, blood disorders or sudden loss in trade and investments. In an agitated situation, it is wise not to make the communication harsh.
  1. Taurus Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 2nd house and the 5thhouse. So, when the 2ndlord and the 5thlord goes to the 7th house in Scorpio, you may expect wealth being generated from some foreign travel or sudden wealth increase due to spouse. Since Mercury is the ruler, the wealth is likely to come from Stocks, Investments, Information Technology Sources, Restaurants etc. Also there will be a lot of communication with one’s legal partner in business or life. 
  1. Gemini Ascendant/ Moon Sign:   Here Mercury rules the 1stHouse and the 4thhouse in a Vedic horoscope. When Mercury sits in the 6th house from the ascendant, it means that soul will go into transformations to fight against enemies and diseases. There may be some challenging situation with one’s mother. One needs to be diplomatic to handle such situations.
  1. Cancer Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 12th house and the 3rd house and Mercury sitting in the 5th house means, now is the time when you will push your valor through creativity. Also, this means that the native may tend to spend a lot on one’s children and invest in one’s dreams. 
  1. Leo Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 2nd house and the 11th house and the same goes to the 4th house. This means gains in life in terms of finances but since Mercury is not in a good position in the house of Mars i.e Scorpio, hence Mother’s health may suffer. You may try to reach out to more number of friends in your birth place. 
  1. Virgo Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 1st house and the 10th house and the same goes to the 3rd house. So, the native may tend to gain strength through bigger organizations. Younger sister’s/brother’s health may be not well this period of time. 
  1. Libra Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 12th house and the 9th house and it goes to the 2nd house, means that there may be problems with one’s income or may get income through other sources. You will tend to do a lot of expenses on your family and work pressure may be high. 
  1. Scorpio Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 11th house and the 8th house and goes to the first house. So, astrological planet Mercury may bring suddenness in one’s attitude. One’s network circle starts influencing one’s soul. One starts dreaming about greater goals in one’s life. 
  1. Sagittarius Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 7th house and the 10th house and Mercury goes to one’s 12th house. So, there may be some delay into contracts & professional work place. 
  1. Capricorn Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 6th house and the 9th house. Hence, these natives may face challenges in their own network circles. May be their own network circle behave in a different manner, which may not be expected in a friendly circle. Also some major gains may be received from one’s father. 
  1. Aquarius Ascendant/ Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 5th house and the 8th house. So, though there will be some challenges in the professional front, the native will try to bring creativity in one’s job. Also, if the native have a child, the child may accompany or play a role in one’s profession. 
  1. Pisces Ascendant/Moon Sign: Here Mercury rules the 4th house and the 7th house of the Vedic horoscope and what happens when Mercury goes down to one’s 9th house. The native may get happiness and comfort by traveling, writing and gets gain in finances. However, this also means that mother’s memories and childhood thought recollection may make the native nostalgic. If someone travels, that person will move to faraway places. 

All said I again want to stress that Life is full of opportunities and in the midst of humongous challenges when the all doors seem closed, don’t get disheartened. Strengthen your 3rd house (my earlier article) and move on. Life has lots of gifts and surprises and you can still create an empire through constant motivation and if your life’s purpose serves higher good, you become a legend. 

Planet Mercury is a communicative planet and it affects all in different ways. So, the astrological planet Mercury entered Scorpio on November 2, 2017 and will be entering Sagittarius on November 24, 2017. 

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 23: SATURN TRANSIT 2017

stars

Planet Saturn in Vedic astrology has been given more importance with reference to one’s karma. Astrological Planet Rahu and Ketu is also known as the Karmic Planet and Planet Saturn provides results based on one’s Karma (deeds). Planet Saturn is a dreaded slow moving planet and provides results based on its transits in different zodiac houses and nakshatras. Right now Planet Saturn is in Jyeshtha Nakshatra and will move to Moola Nakshatra ruled by planet Ketu on 26 October, 2017. This transit will affect different zodiac people as well as different nakshatra in various ways. Some may be benefitted and for others, this transit can throw challenging situations.

Planet Saturn plays a very important role in any person’s rise or fortune. As per the mythological story, Saturn is a planet which grants result as per one’s karma. So, whether one gets good effect or bad result depends on one karmic action performed earlier or in previous births. Saturn plays a vital role in one’s professional life. A well placed Saturn in one’s chart helps to rise high in life but with lots of struggle. A position attained through struggle is generally retained for long if the assignment awarded is due to lord Saturn.

As per the mythology, Saturn is the Son of Surya and Chaya. Saturn has a very strained relation with his father Surya or Lord Sun. That’s the reason, during the Sade-Satti Phase, the zodiac Leo ruled by Lord Sun suffers the most. Saturn represents the old people, disabled people and humans who are not benefitted in the society. Oil, Gas and Petroleum Sector is also ruled by Saturn. In the human body, Saturn rules the bones. So, if anyone has problems related to bones, it is generally due to the malefic effect of Saturn.

Saturn Dristi is the 3rd house, 7th house and 10th house. So, whenever Saturn looks into these houses, there is a problem related to those houses. Saturn in turn protects the house in which it is positioned.

Transit of Saturn into Sagittarius this 26 October, 2017 will be the starting of the seven years Sade Satti Phase for the Capricorn Moon Signs. This will also lead to peak time sade satti for Sagittarius Moon Signs and will be the last phase of the Scorpio Moon Signs. Additionally the Moon sign Zodiacs, who are going to be affected, are Gemini and Virgo. The Zodiac’s who will be relieved during this time from Dhaiya is Leo, Taurus and to some extent Aries. Options and Opportunities are going to open up for the Natal Moon Signs of Leo, Taurus and Aries. The moon signs of Aquarius will be towards a major period of opportunities and new beginnings.

Sade Satti happens when Saturn the karmic planet travels the natal Moon sign in the twelfth, first and the second house. Sade Satti is not bad, but it acts as life’s teacher. During the first phase, an individual tends to make mistakes which turns to be a learning lesson for the individual. The second phase disturbs ones health and the third phase leads to maximum travel in one’s life due to various reasons. However, there are cases, where it has been observed that Sade Satti have actually helped an individual lead a great life during its peak time phase. All this depends on the analysis of the total chart and the horoscope analysis done based on several parameters.

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.

ASTROLOGY ARTICLE 22: Transit of Rahu and Ketu in August 18, 2017– A Vedic Astrology Analysis:

rk

In a few days’ time, there will be a change in the placement of the two great Astrological Planets – Rahu and Ketu in the celestial sky. The transit is taking place after 1 year and 8 months and will have various types of effect on different zodiacs. Before analysing the transit, let us first know as to what this shadow planet Rahu is and details about the smoky planet Ketu.

Planet Rahu:

There are various types of mythological stories about the astrological planet Rahu. As per the allegorical fables, the astrological planet Rahu and Ketu was a demon and during the Ocean churning event, they were trying to drink the nectar of ever long life. Planet Sun and Moon watched the incident with caution and immediately informed Lord Vishnu. The Lord anticipating danger beheaded the demon with his Sudarshan Chakra. In the meantime, one drop of nectar have gone inside the body of the demon and hence the first part of the body i.e the Head is known as Planet Rahu and the other half of the body is known as Planet Ketu.

Astrological planet Rahu is a materialistic planet and remains always unsatisfied. Highly innovative in nature, this planet creates an aura around it, so that it becomes impossible for ordinary people to judge the person who is controlled by Rahu. Planet Rahu wants worldly belongings at one go and provided a chance it wants possessions of those in seconds. This planet never obeys the law and delivers sudden results.

So, whether life events are for bad or good, Rahu makes it happen in a very sudden way. Rahu is also about illusion and it creates a mist around the person. Individual with well- placed Rahu can become a great film artist. Most film stars have well placed Rahu in their vedic horoscope. Rahu also rules the political arena and by that it also means that politicians who have reached to higher position have a well placed Rahu.

However, there are many events in life, where Rahu make wonders. Most of the never forgotten stories in the world are due to the planet Rahu.  This planet has created history and those are not the ones which will be forgotten. The creation of an individual in the Rahu Mahadasha with a well placed Rahu in the vedic chart remains memorable forever, even after the death of the individual. This planet is fascinating and the deeds accomplished always keep a mark in the history books.

This planet may make you a King or may help you to rise to a level of the King out of nothing. That’s the height of uncertainty with this planet. It’s unpredictable and hence prognosticating about the astrological prospect of the planet becomes difficult.

Except Jupiter and Venus the planet Rahu is not controlled by any other astrological planets. Venus being the demon spiritual leader, the planet never does harm to its own spiritual guru. Jupiter is the celestial spiritual leader of the Devtas and always reins in planet Rahu to perform things in a great way. Hence you may observe that the great scientists may have Jupiter and Rahu together.  Planet Rahu means sudden expansion and planet Jupiter is about expansion by patience. So, both the planets go well together. With rest of the planets, Rahu is all about taking their nature like a chameleon and expanding their energies. The planet Rahu has fifth and ninth aspect from its sign.

Aspects of planet Rahu are also there in the seventh house but since it’s seeing its own body Ketu, the aspect is not that great. Planet Rahu is known as the North Node of the Moon.

Planet Ketu:

This is a spiritual planet and generally symbolizes detachment. This is the planet which makes you learn the art of isolation in one’s life. The planet Ketu is a spiritual planet and signifies processes of materialization to spirit and may be considered both benefic and malefic since it causes sorrows and loss and at the same time it brings ones closer to God. Planet Ketu is the karaka for non-attachment, fantasy and intuition. A well placed Ketu provides one with great wealth and good health to the native.  This is the planet for liberation and enlightenment. Planet Ketu is the South Node of the Moon.

So, let’s analyse as to what happens when these two planets changes its signs on August 18, 2017 from Leo to Cancer Zodiac (Rahu) and Aquarius to Capricorn Zodiac (Ketu). The following will be the general reactions on the specific zodiacs: keeping aside other parameters.
