Vedic Astrology Report for September 2019: Service, Helpfulness and Finding Common Ground

vedic astrology May 2015

In September, the sign of Virgo is highlighted with Venus and Mercury beginning their transit through this service-oriented earth sign. Venus shifts to Virgo, its debilitated sign, on September 9, and the next day, intellectual Mercury enters Virgo, its exalted sign, on September 10.  The combination of Venus and Mercury in Virgo emphasizes helpfulness and finding common ground, sharing our thoughts with one another, without over-analyzing or being too critical. Saturn, planet of truth, goes direct on September 18, and will conjunct Ketu, south node of the Moon, for the last time this year from September 28 to October 4. We slowly begin to move forward with greater insight and understanding.

Venus, planet of love, relationship, healing, and finance, transits its debilitated sign of Virgo from September 9 until October 3, 2019. On October 1, 2019, Venus will be at 27 degrees Virgo, its exact degree of debility, so we can experience greater challenge the last few days of September to October 1. However, the debility of Venus is helped somewhat when exalted Mercury joins Venus in the sign of Virgo from September 10 until September 28, 2019.

Venus in Virgo can bring faultfinding in our connections with loved ones as we want perfection. We like things pure and natural. The disharmony we see in our world is upsetting. We need to be more present and caring in our relationships with others, so we don’t relive the past. So it’s a good time to open our hearts with kindness and compassion, releasing the pattern of judging others. Being of service to those in need is a good remedy. Environmental concerns and finding ways to help the planet are prominent themes. As Venus also rules our finances, this is a time to be discerning with expenses and investments.

Mercury, planet of communications and the intellect, transits Virgo, its exalted sign, from September 10 through September 28, 2019. On September 17, Mercury will be at full strength when it transits 15 degrees Virgo, its exact degree of exaltation. Mercury in Virgo is an excellent period for education and participating in activities that stimulate the mind. We feel more discriminative, and want order and exactness in our lives. Mercury also rules commerce and sales, so use this time to improve or make needed adjustments to your business. But do watch for over-thinking, excessive worry, or increased mental chatter. Thoughtfulness, meditation, creativity, and journaling are positive expressions.

Saturn, planet of structure and discipline, goes direct at 19 degrees Sagittarius on September 18, having been retrograde since April 29, 2019. During Saturn’s retrograde phase that occurs about 4 ½ months every year, we reflect on our lives and our responsibilities.  Now with Saturn direct we feel more pressure to focus our energies outwardly, and to make needed changes in order to live more authentically. It is a positive time to connect to our deeper purpose with a renewed sense of self-responsibility and intention, which gives our life greater meaning and satisfaction.

Saturn and Ketu will conjunct exactly at 19 degrees Sagittarius from September 27 through October 4, 2019, for the third and final time this year, and then they begin to slowly separate. These two planets have been traveling very close together since March 23, 2019. We have been undergoing a major period of testing the validity of our beliefs and values while they are in the sign of Sagittarius. Saturn and Ketu also teach us about equanimity, detachment and surrender as they guide us to go deeper spiritually. We may be motivated to downsize our lives in the process. But the Ketu influence can also create confusion and we may reject much needed discipline in our lives. This conjunction can also indicate the need for a deeper commitment to our meditation practice or personal sadhana in order to realize our true inner identity. Ultimately, we are slowly building a stronger foundation for the future.
