Amavasya Tithi-Moon and Sun joined in Virgo on 4th October, 2013

Amāvasyā/ Amavasya indicates the New Moon when the luminaries are joined in one sign/ Rāśi/ Rashi. This has many implications. Such a time has material implications and in India also marks the end of the Śrāddha Pakṣa/ Shraddha Paksha-the fortnight where the Pitṛs/ancestors are remembered and propitiated and leads to the Navarātri/ Navaratri-Nine Nights of the Devī/ Devi/ Goddess.

The New Moon brings new things as another cycle is commencing. This is a time of beginnings and initiations. It depends on Karma as to what is begun and what is ended. Even in nativities we find that births on the New Moon are fraught with great difficulties and it depends as to why these difficulties are there and what they lead to from case to case. Some may assimilate the problems and emerge as the favourites of the Goddess while others may find some dark path, with a darkened mind.

The Amāvasyā/ Amavasya is governed by Rāhu/ Rahu, the North Node of the Moon. It is inimical to the Moon/ Cañdra/ Chandra and hence the difficulties. Rāhu/ Rahu will play a very dominant role in the life of the native. The alleviation of the problems sometimes depends on the strength of Gurū/ Guru/ Jupiter as the two planets are antithetical to each other. And yet, we would do well not to judge. Without Rāhu/ Rahu a huge and significant part of creation is lost. We cannot be judgmental of Grahas. Rāhu/ Rahu is Tamas Guṇa/ Guna Graha while Gurū is Sattwa Guṇa/ Guna.

If Jupiter is very strong in the nativity then subject to a host of other facets in the horoscope, the difficulties can be tided over and the person may emerge as being the favourite of the Goddess. Otherwise, onerous times have to be undergone and suffering entails. The Tithi, just as Kṛṣṇa Caturdaśī/ Krishna Chaturdashi is flawed and thus remedial measures are required as per the Śāstra/ Shastra/ scriptures.

The transit chart/ Gochara Chakra is extracted below for the reference of the readers-

We can see there are no full planetary aspects on the conjoined luminaries. The impact of Virgo/Kanyā Rāśi/ Kanya Rashi is therefore quite pronounced. The sign relates to work and the yielding of gains from work. It requires putting the head down and working. This experience is not easy but forms the backbone of the modern working world. It harbours ambitions which are fanned by the materialistic Moon and Sūrya/ Surya, the governor of all resources in the world as the Āditya/ Aditya.
It is for some of the foregoing reasons that the Financial New Year starts on a New Moon in Hindu India and also why Lakṣmī/Lakshmi is worshipped on the New Moon on Dīpāwalī/ Deepawali. It is a state of lack leading to a state of abundance.
There is the Rāśi Dṛṣṭi of Gurū/ Guru to the Yoga which ensures that blessings are  coming in a big way especially for some natives born in this Yoga if the horoscope should so indicate. Further sign aspects indicate fated and deterministic influences and the positives will come from writing, communications, banking transactions, friendships and acquaintances etc.
While Venus/ Śukra/ Shukra is also transiting out to Scorpio/ Vṛṣcika/ Vrishchika that has to be the subject of another paper.
