This month is eventful astrologically with lots of movement. Rahu and Ketu move into new signs, Jupiter is in Gandanta and will move into Sagittarius for a short time, and Mercury goes retrograde.

March 5th and 6th are especially eventful days. Mercury will be retrograde between March 5th and March 28th. After a busy period, this intellectual planet Mercury needs to slow down in order to integrate new information, and to reflect over the future. It is a complex time for Mercury and his ruling signs Gemini and Virgo also feel it.

Mercury is debilitated in Pisces and does not think very rationally when in this sensitive and intuitive sign. In addition to the debilitation, Mercury is also retrograde after March 5th. It is good to think twice before making decisions now, Mercury does not think very practically during this time. On March 14th, Mercury moves back to Aquarius. He previously travelled very quickly through this sign and returns again to readdress and rethink his humanitarian and political agenda.

Rahu co-rules Aquarius. This is good for unusual and innovative thinking and science. Mercury turns direct and begins his journey towards Pisces on March 28th. By April 11th Mercury is back in Pisces again. Mercury is now direct and remains in Pisces until May 3rd. Rahu moves into Gemini and Ketu moves into Sagittarius on March 6th.

How will the transforming power of these shadow planets affect us during their stay in Gemini and Sagittarius? Rahu and Ketu are always opposite one another. Because they always move retrograde, they move through the signs in the opposite direction of the other planets. The nodes are points where the orbit of the Moon meets the plane of the Sun and the earth.

Rahu is the north node because its shadow falls north of the equator. Ketu, the south node, is the shadow south of the equator. These junction points are also places where eclipses can occur. Rahu and Ketu are also referred to as the karmic axis. These shadow planets have a strong impact on us collectively and also as individuals. Rahu represents the desires that we wish to fulfill, and our attraction to new experiences.

Ketu is the complete opposite of Rahu. Through the influence of Ketu we can experience a sense of disinterest and disappointment with material life. Through Ketu we know that the material life will not satisfy us in the end. Ketu represents change, liberation, loss and the letting go of desires. Ketu can make us interested in the intangible. Thus we see a cosmic reality in the transits of the nodes; the manifestation of new desires and the liberation, the letting go, or loss, of old ones.

Many scandals have emerged. Women have gained strength. Politics around immigration, security, and health have had a big impact on society as a whole. Capricorns have a strong sense for organization and structure. Rahu moves into Gemini on March 6th and will stay in Gemini until September 22nd, Rahu can express unusual and innovative thinking. He does well in Gemini; a sign of diversity and communication. However, for the remainder of this year Rahu in Gemini will experience a close opposition from Saturn in Sagittarius.

Rahu is larger than life, he makes everything grow. With Rahu in Gemini things such as smartphones, internet and computer science are likely to continue to advance way beyond their present development. Rahu is at the cutting edge of science and technology, artificial intelligence, and can revolutionize life as we know it.

Rahu can also be toxic. He can induce fear and cause us to feel ungrounded. We will need to watch out for secret foreign interference and the manipulation and theft of private information. It is more important now than ever to protect our computers. Ketu enters the sign of Sagittarius on March 6th.

Ketu moves retrograde from Capricorn into the last degrees of Sagittarius and begins his eighteen month journey through Sagittarius. Ketu is in the nakshatra Uttara Ashadha until May 8th. Ketu is the liberator of past karma and this gives victory to people who have been wronged in the past. During the entire transit in Sagittarius, Ketu will stay very close to Saturn. Ketu and Saturn will stay very close together for the remainder of the year in Purva Ashadha. Such a long lasting close conjunction between Ketu and Saturn is unprecedented in modern times.

Purva Ashadha also indicates that which cannot be suppressed. The Deity connected to this nakshatra is Apas, the Water God. Water has the power to cleanse and purify when it flows freely. Sagittarius wants to pursue dharma and higher knowledge. Jupiter rules this sign and Jupiter represent laws, higher education and religion. In Sagittarius we find the warrior fighting for righteousness and truth.

But the negative side of Purva Ashadha is self-righteousness, fanatical beliefs, extremism and prejudice. Saturn is a planet governing karmic retribution and Ketu is the past. Wrongdoings of the past can be difficult to face and are shaking the foundations of the world as we know it. During February, Mars is powerful in Aries, Venus expresses caution with Saturn, and Mercury is busy transiting through three signs. On February 5th, Mars moves into Aries. Mars is energetic, assertive and headstrong in this sign that he rules. This is a good position for initiating projects and for doing physical exercise and sports.

This yoga will strengthen the qualities of Mars- energy, courage and independence. Unfortunately, Mars will lose the positive connection he had with Jupiter while he was transiting Pisces. This means that Mars can be more impulsive, self willed and less inclined to follow the wisdom offered by Jupiter. Instead he will join Uranus when he transits Aries. Their conjunction is exact on February 13th. This will increase the desire for independence and freedom which, if carried to an extreme, can lead to revolution.

There is a greater risk for irrational or impulsive action. Venus, on the other hand, is more restrictive this month because the planet travels with Saturn in Sagittarius until February 24th. Their conjunction is exact on February 18th at 22 degrees Sagittarius. The energy of Venus conjunct with Saturn is disciplined and serious. We may need to take a deeper look at our values and at that which we appreciate in our lives.

Their conjunction can cause restriction in romantic relationships. This combination can be good for making the ideals of Venus more concrete, although this will not happen without work and effort. A Venus and Saturn combination is good for work emphasizing art, structure and design. Mercury is quick by nature and moves quite fast through the zodiac. He connects with three signs this month. Mercury begins the month in Capricorn and moves to Aquarius on February 6th.

After the 24th, he will transit in Pisces. Communication and information come especially quickly to us during this time. This can manifest as news giving us a lot to digest every day. Once Mercury reaches Pisces, he will make a longer stay. He will not leave Pisces until May 3rd. The is because he is retrograde between March 5th to March 28th. Mercury may need to catch up and to work things out during this time. He will also return to Aquarius during his retrograde. As we come into January , we find a great deal of instability in the world and the planetary energies are complex.

Many nations are divided on important issues. The US enters during a government shutdown. Great Britain is divided regarding Brexit. Countries all around the globe also feel pressure. Uranus helps us understand some of the instability we see in the world right now. Uranus is an outer planet and is not traditionally included in the nine planets used in Vedic Astrology.

Uranus is rebellious. At its best Uranus will express uniqueness, new thought and innovation. An expansive Uranus can revolutionize our lives in positive ways. But when challenged, this planet manifests an instability that can potentially lead us into chaos. Uranus is currently retrograde and has stationed at 4 degrees Aries sidereal astrology. A retrograde Uranus makes it harder to restrain the erratic and impulsive qualities of this planet. When Great Britain voted for Brexit back in April , Uranus was in Gandanta between Pisces and Aries, which gave an indication that uncertainty and turmoil would follow the decision.

Uranus is currently in a difficult aspect to the karmic axis the two lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu. This puts pressure on some of the deep karmic issues that the world is grappling with today: migration, immigration, security, and the challenges and breaking downs of institutions and democratic processes. This is a house that shows the impact of our actions on the world.

His time as a president of the United States reflects a similar unpredictable and impulsive pattern. After January 6th, Uranus goes direct again and will very slowly move away from the close and challenging aspect to each of the Lunar nodes. Almost at the same time as Uranus turns direct, a partial solar eclipse will occur on January 5th. The new Moon is in Sagittarius. The eclipse can be seen in East Asia and the Pacific.
