Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Monthly Vedic Astrology Forecast - Planetary Influence

It might be sunny, or raining but you either go to work or not. Life it's what we live for. Towards the middle of this retrograde, I began to subconsciously immerse myself in it and learn from all the lessons its brought my way. For a second, I forgot it was retrograde and began to just go with the jarring, "backwards" nature of this period of time. I found myself not being able to "land" on a focus for my day today I googled and found this!

Thanks for being online - so that I could re-member my sensitivity to Mercury Retrograde, and take things a little easier. Externally, a chat group in which I participate, got their knickers in a twist over pretty much everything I wrote. One person seemed totally unable to understand simple sentences and refused to own her mistakes.

Fortunately, none of the group are important in my life, they're just on the periphery. On the up side, it has been excellent practice in seeing what matters and discarding the rest. It is very empowering to ignore people who are seeking conflict. Tracked Mercury retrogrades since This is one of the worst ever. Computer battery died. One AC broke last week, the other today. First AC contractor broke my door lock then denied it and won't pay..

Door repair expert didn't come for almost a week. Home warranty company has now offshored customer service to Asia, all by script, no one thinking, so for the first time in 19 yrs says I cannot choose the AC contractor, they will assign one. The one I want shows not on their list but has been for years. Will have to call the contractor and tell them to correct home warranty company records.

Knee injury Deal closing keeps being delayed 3 weeks. I could go on but you get the idea Luckily I have positive communication skills professionally so have avoided conflict except with contractor and home warranty company, with whom I have been very firm but not rudely angry. I too have not wanted to go out to buy food, finally had to. Counting down until lst of August, but remember we have the shadow period which tails off for 2 more weeks, heaven help us all!

I want to hide until Aug. This is the worst mercury in retrograde. Things have been off for me in all aspects of life. Hurry and end. Last day of retrograde and my daughters dog got hit by a car, her boyfriend got in a car accident rushing to the vet. Everyone should be OK though Thank God.

This is the worst bout of Mercury in retrograde I've experienced in a long time. People seem to be impossible or is it me?

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

I can't wait for it to be over. I agree! I didn't realise mercury was retrograde, but my total chaos in the last 2 weeks is now finally explained. Yes, it was one of the most intense in quite some time. Have been tracking for decades. A package I took to post office is lost in space somewhere. Communication between anyone and myself has not been a happy experience. My accounting has been off.

enter site I wrote on a check before I caught myself. This plays out on an individual basis as we journey through life on a quest for a healthy ego that allows us to define our unique individual imprint while averting us from the disaster of an overblown sense of self-importance or, in some cases, self-debasement. This year, the annual meeting of Saturn and Sun occurs with much more spice.

The path of destruction that was wrought by the gouging plow action of the Saturn-Ketu conjunction through the summer months has become the trench in which we will see this year's meeting of Saturn and Sun, which occurs exactly as the Sun exits Sagittarius on January The addition of Ketu, Jupiter and Mercury to this mix, especially in Jupiter's territory, could signal a time of reckoning in the realm of personal responsibility.

December 12222

The weakness, corruption and decay revealed throughout the summer is begging to be broken apart, cleansed and transmuted; if that has not already begun after possibly painful breakups, disappointments or other means of creating separation, be ready for things to move, ready or not. We are coming to a time where the desires of the individual will need to be balanced and integrated with the needs of the collective.

Some will gain and some will lose, but a new point of balance is in the works. Where the Sun travels, light comes into dark corners and the pests that hide in the cracks will be forced out of their comfort zones. While the Sun and Saturn are going head-to-head, Jupiter presides as the judge, Mercury is present to witness and record while Ketu perennially is present to break apart the illusion of material entrapment. However this plays out on a collective level or on an individual basis, we may be forced to accept responsibility for how we have contributed to the corruption that so readily repulses us.

As Mercury moves out of Scorpio on December 25, Mars moves in, which creates a very interesting shape in the South Indian chart style. This shape holds through mid-January and you can see it in the graphic below that depicts the annular solar eclipse on Christmas.

The shape reminds me of an arrow, in which the planet Rahu is the fletching, the grouping of planets in Sagittarius is the arrow's tip and Venus and Mars flanking either side of the grouping of planets are the barbs of the arrows. While there may not be ancient astrological meaning to this configuration per se, the visual does pull into mind the symbol of Sagittarius, which is an arrow, a symbol that is also associated with a few of the nakshatras.

Mars in Scorpio is acting as a backup energy or support system for the planets gathered under the spotlight in Sagittarius, just as Venus in Capricorn is creating a supportive energy on the other side. The pressure cooker environment caused by the combination of planets therein at the moment is being managed by Mars on one side and Venus on the other; both are well placed and could be the saving grace for the current times. Even after the critical moment passes, Mars will be remaining in his own sign of Scorpio through the first week of February. This may be an indication of a period of focused effort, reorganization or accounting of resources while bravely facing problems that require us to dig deep and stand strong.

Depending upon your whereabouts this annular solar eclipse will either occur on December 25 or 26 and it will either be visible or not. In US Mountain time zone, the eclipse happens at around pm, which means that we couldn't see the eclipse of the Sun as it is below the horizon. The path of eclipse visibility runs through Saudi Arabia, South India and Indonesia, but eclipses tend to make a mark even on regions that may not be witnessing the eclipse. In this case we are having a solar eclipse, which happens during a new Moon, when the Moon passes in front of the Sun from the Earth's perspective, temporarily obscuring the sunlight.

These three planets make up the group of the light-giving, positive, sattwic planets. They are also sitting in the nakshatra Mula, lorded by the planet Ketu and the goddess of destruction, Nirriti. And they are surrounded!

Ketu's energy is known to block or obstruct materially but to liberate spiritually, so depending upon one's desires, this could be favorable or utterly frustrating. In the early degrees of Sagittarius is energetic Mercury, our source of exchanges, communication, learning, markets, somewhat outside the orb of the eclipse shadow but close enough to be included in the equation.

In the late degrees of Sagittarius sits Saturn, causing pressure and urging detachment, preparing to shift signs. The idea behind eclipses is that a shadow descends upon that which we count on to light our way. This obstruction forces us inward, to draw upon our inner resources to calm and guide us through darkness and difficulty. It will be profound to witness the temporary loss of the comfort and warmth of the Sun's light, the Moon's compassion and Jupiter's guidance.

This shocking experience when channelled toward an expanded understanding helps us to gain perspective about how to manage our minds and spirits as they move through the material world. For when the light returns and the shadow recedes, we have a newfound understanding of our purpose due to the struggle of maintaining perspective when the lights go away.

This eclipse seems to mark a turning point for many as we surrender to circumstances, root down into our anchor points and fully let go of that which is actually begging to become free. The chart below shows the planets configured in the sky at the moment of eclipse. Rahu is in the upper right corner Gemini with the grouping of six planets in Sagittarius in the lower left corner.
