As September arrives, so does a unique planetary configuration known as Kala Sarpa Yoga. Once the Sun moves to the other side of Rahu, towards the edge of Leo on September 4th, a unique planetary yoga occurs. Many astrologers are talking about the various effects of this upcoming four month period when all planets will be scissored in between Rahu and Ketu. This unique combination will continue until late December, once Mars moves to the other side of Ketu.
Mercury Retrograde- Mercury in Leo
Mercury will go retrograde in its sign of exaltation on August 30th. Mercury will be exalted in Virgo (not in its mulitrikona degrees) during this retrograde.
Sun in Virgo
Multiple back to back planetary changes occur mid September with Sun’s transit into Virgo starting the change process. On September 16th mid morning, only a few hours prior to the full Moon in Pisces, Sun moves out of its favorite sign and into Virgo.
Full Moon in Pisces
Just after Sun shifts into Virgo on September 16th, the full Moon in Pisces occurs with a penumbral lunar eclipse. This eclipse ends the unusually long eclipse portal that began on August 18th with an “almost” lunar eclipse
Mars in Sagittarius
On the heels of the full Moon, Mars moves into Sagittarius after months of being in a tense, pressurized dance with Saturn in Scorpio. The tight conjunction of Saturn and Mars in Scorpio has been provoking tests, lessons and all out war, since Mars began his Scorpio transit late February of this year.
Venus in Libra
Ending three days of back to back transits, Venus shifts to its mulitrikona sign, Libra, on September 18th. This cycle is relationship oriented and will ask you to address feelings and emotions connected to loss, separation, release and transformation.
*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic (sidereal) rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your Western sign (Tropical) as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.
