Vedic Astrology & Moon Sign

In Vedic Astrology, Moon is what signifies the human Mind. Moon is the heavenly body closest to Earth, the cosmic and magnetic influences and energy of all other planets reaches Earth through the Moon.
Another key thing to note here is that mind is ruled by Moon and all influences on the human being whether physical, psychological or supernatural affect the human mind since they are filtered through your Moon Sign. The human body which is ruled by SUN may or may not respond to the mental / psychological / supernatural influences.
This is the reason why Vedic Astrology reckons the planetary movements based on your Moon Sign.

December Astrology 2018

Welcome December on a weekend with the Moon in relationship friendly Libra and Mercury and Venus both slipping into Scorpio adding to the planetary water elements as Mars is in Pisces for December. With 3 of the personal planets traveling through water signs this month emotions can be all over the map.  Begin the fun and festive holiday month. The Sun is square Mars this weekend supplying plenty of energy to compensate for all the promises made to make the scene at all the invitations received. 
Mercury moves direct on December 6th the day before the new moon. It will not pass the degree from which it went retrograde until the 24th, known as the shadow point.

This Sagittarius season, with Jupiter ruling the new moon in its own sign is suggesting there will be many opportunities to enjoy the bounty and abundance that surrounds you. Just pay attention to your environment and notice when and where the offerings are available to participate. With the Sun, Saturn and Pluto at the same declination in the new moon chart an intense awareness to make the best of life is palpable. Jupiter in Sagittarius with the Sagittarius new Moon desperately wants us to pay close attention to how our mind and beliefs alter our view of the world and impact our experience of life. Believe in your capabilities and challenge the negative programing that lurks in the corners of the subconscious.

The Sagittarius new moon on the 7th is a breath of encouragement and optimism as it is the first Sagittarius New Moon with the ruling planet Jupiter in Sag since 2007. The only downside is over confidence in far reaching schemes that have a bit of the gamblers bet riding on them. Caution aside, the Sagittarius new moon is a time to set your intentions in far reaching possibilities that you don’t have a clue how it is probable, but know it is possible. It is a time to reach out to those who believe in you and help you stretch beyond your comfort zone of what you think and believe you can do and challenge you to do more than you think you can.

The Capricorn Solstice on December 21st heralds in the suns journey for the next 6 months. This is an important solstice as the eclipse patterns have moved into the Capricorn/Cancer axis.  The most challenging aspect is Saturn at the Sun/Pluto midpoint.

The Cancer full moon Saturday the 22nd. It brings into the weekend the deep desire to connect with those you love and feel comfortable around. Food and cozy will be the key words. It may be a bit on the emotional side for those who are lonely or feel distraught over not being able to get everything the way one wants before the last week of the year settles in.  Mercury is conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, which can be interesting for travel,  Mercury with Jupiter square Neptune represents many people on the road or in the air however the closer we get to the exact Square on the 24th the more likely it will be to miss connections or have unforeseen circumstances interrupt your route.  The Cancer full moon always is about finding a balance between your responsibilities and duties in life while taking care of the inner and emotional needs.

The year ends with Mars moving into Aries giving plenty of enthusiasm to say out with the old and hurrah for the New Year. In addition the Sun is with Saturn exact the next day, January 1st 2019. This is an excellent signature for planning and setting your intentions for your new year.  With the Moon in Scorpio presiding over New Years Eve it can be a time of deep meditation, intuitive recognition of your new year ahead.

The Fiery month of July is the blood-red sun month

July is the fiery month of the blood-red sun that precedes a summer storm, the summer heat, and the gorgeous produce of the summer. July’s birthstone color is red and that it’s stone is the world’s most famous and popular red stone – the Ruby.
Ruby – the name is derived from Ruber, the Latin for Red. It is one of the hardest gemstones, second only to a diamond. It is a part of the Corundum family and is red in color due to the presence of Chromium Oxide.
The birthstone for July – the Ruby is special and is considered as the ‘King of Gems’ as per the ancient Hindu belief.

It can heal the emotional and spiritual wounds of the wearer as it wards off evil influences. It promotes positive dreams, fights exhaustion and lethargy, and imparts vigour. Being protective in nature, these red stones are tokens of harmony and peace, thus the wearer attracts both good luck and good friends. Ruby detoxifies the body, blood and lymphatic system. It treats fevers, infectious disease and restricted blood flow. The Ruby additionally stimulates the adrenals, kidneys, reproductive organs and spleen.
Rubies are representatives of the personality traits like courage, clarity, passion and leadership. The wearer have laser-targeted focus on achieving their goals and are action-oriented. Ruby emits a stable and warm vibration that transforms into a passion.
Rubies, however, can sometimes turn dark, which in ancient times was attributed to the wearer’s mood or oncoming danger. Therefore, those with this birthstone are quite prone to mood swings and experience their emotions more deeply and more often than most. Those with the Ruby birthstone are flashy and dramatic. This beautiful rich red stone symbolizes spontaneous, confident, fun-loving, fearless, and adventurous individuals who are unafraid of confrontations. They have a talent for defusing conflict with their upbeat personality. What a lovely reason to keep Cancers close!
Therefore, when it comes to birthstones, July birthdays are lucky.

Saturn Transit - 3 years

Saturn moved its house once again on 26th October 2017. This is the last but the most important change of 2017, as Saturn moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius, where it will be transiting for about 2 years & 3 months (till 24th January 2020) bringing major changes in our lives that are currently not imagined or planned. Sagittarius is a strange sign for Saturn as it is an aggressive sign full of fire, openness & impatience. All these traits are just the opposite of the true nature of Saturn, which would ensure that changes in life would come in due to changed circumstances and mostly out of reactions rather than planned or pleasant coincidences of life!
Saturn behaves like a teacher who is strict in maintaining discipline – who punishes as well as rewards the students as per their performances, deeds and behavior. Like a judge he is also known to give justice according to deeds of the persons. Saturn has an eye on the deeds and conduct of every person and he waits for a particular period to give the results of the same. These periods are popularly known as the period of Saturn like Major period of Saturn (Shani Mahadasha), Minor period of Saturn (Shani Antardasha), Seven and a half year period of Saturn (Sadhe Sati) and Two and a half period of Saturn (Kantak Shani). No one can escape, how great he may be, during these periods if he had performed bad karmas in life. These periods offer an opportunity to the native to balance his sins to make him more pure and pious.

Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn would experience tough time as these natives are undergoing one of the phases of Saturn Sadhe Sati.

Those who are born with Sagittarius as their Moon Sign will get the worst results as they will be facing second phase of Sadhe sati.

Moon sign born Taurus, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces will feel bad effect of this Saturn transit.

Moon Sign born Cancer, Libra and Aquarius will have good results of this transit.

Moon sign born Leo and Aries will have neutral effect of transit.
