In October with both Mercury’s retrogression and the lunar eclipse - yeah the blood Moon - relationships have gone for a toss and have been very turbulent. Things have slowed down, many people saw their health get affected. Many said to me, "I feel good but my health report does not say that. Why?" People’s minds have been muddled, their brains have been fuzzy, and they've experienced bouts of anger, vindictiveness, jealousies and pettiness. These have all surfaced in BIG way.
People are behaving in ways unlike their normal character. Healers are having a hard time healing and getting results but at least their healings are still keeping things from totally falling apart.
Moon too had been moving through weak signs - its lowest point was Amavasya in October - and relationships would have been still rocky due to some planets together in the volatile fiery hot signs. Venus and Rahu together in Virgo will cause continued turmoil.
Sun’s transit through Libra started on October 16th and there till November 16th will give health and emotional challenges to those whose Sun is in a weak place in their natal charts. And even more so when your house is not Vaastu-compliant. It will give health issues to even those who are doing well in terms of being creative and empowering themselves.
It also alienates people who are trying to work together - there will be presumptions, power struggles and disagreements. I’ve seen that with some of my clients who have partners who are working together, and even at my end, there have been some incidents.
Some are finding it hard to relinquish control and tell me they have been let down by others before, so feel they need to do things their own way even with new, trustworthy partners. Others are overpromising and not delivering. In personal relationships also there are unusual flare ups.
This is why I wrote in my posts that you must give each other space especially since good relationships are built on working through disagreements... but ONLY when you are in a calm space yourself and allow the other person to regain their balance. Don’t allow your ego or anger to ruin things.
With Sun flanked by Rahu in Virgo on one side and Saturn in Scorpio, the effect on people with weak charts will be that of imagining hurts when there are none. I got several emails from people asking me if I had read their mind with all my previous posts - that they were going through very similar issues. But my message to such people will be to focus on the good qualities of others, to clear the air in person and not over emails and texts. Keep it cordial on email and texts - the biggest misunderstandings are caused there. Sun in Libra rules the lower chakras and so many people with chronic ailments have had their conditions aggravate, such as lower chakras getting heavier with diseased energy, lower limbs, back and solar plexus getting affected.
Mars and Venus will cause special stress around the end of October where there will be power struggles between people - egos coming in the way. Things will start calming down by November 2nd and become better by November 5th. Many relationships will be back on track by November 16th, but again we also have to act towards creating the harmony within ourselves and with others. Fix your attitude first - be powerfully positive. Some people will see things slowing down due to Saturn’s influence, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Jupiter is powerful for those who have it well placed in their charts and for them it will give amazing opportunities. But those with weak planets, a lot of opportunities may be taken away.
Personally I have always believed that what seems like a lost opportunity is an opportunity to grow so that something better that is on the way can be given to you.
I believe that strong foundations build strong structures.
However, with several planets affecting each other there still will be struggle and confusion. Only those who understand and have patience will be unscathed. This is the time for reflection and self-analysis - a time to look at our own character and reactions and work through our insecurities and issues of distrust, fear, anger and resentment towards not just others but our own selves. Many times we find it the hardest to forgive ourselves for allowing things that are negative to happen to us or affect us or even causing hurt to others.
Things will start changing around November 21st and for most people there will be joy and grace from November 25th through December. Remember also planets affect those areas badly that are not Vaastu-compliant in your home. So you will see some positive stuff in some areas and struggle in others, but if you stay positive, take things in the right perspective, don’t give up on yourself and others, you will be able to move ahead by slowing down your pace.
