Vedic Astrology/ Jyotisha Transits Around 8th January, 2014

The times, they are a-changin’, always. Vedic astrology/ Jyotiṣa/ Jyotisha encapsulates this reality in many ways.

Gocara/ Gochara/ transits of planets is one such way. Let us see the transit of planets in Vedic astrology on and around the 8th of January, 2014.

We find that Venus/ Śukra has retrograded back to Sagittarius/ Dhanuṣa/ Dhanusha from Capricorn/ Makara Rāśi/ Rashi. Mercury/ Budha is on the verge of moving into Capricorn from Sagittarius.

We can tap into the knowledge pools of both mundane, pragmatic knowledge that works in the modern world and the esoteric truths that sustain existence since Venus is both able to tap into the reserves of Dhanuṣa and also forms Dwi-Gurū/ Guru Yoga due to its mutual Rāśi Dṛṣti/ Rashi Drishti/ sign aspect and Graha Driṣṭi/ planetary aspect with Jupiter.

Both great benefics are retrograde and desire each others’ situs. Retrograde benefics make us sit up and notice them-they indicate strong desires and pulls in the positive. Strong experiences can emerge for those who have them destined in their Karma in corporate life and in personal relationships as well in the realm of wisdom and spiritual flights of the mind.

Budha has not been so comfortable in Dhanuṣa and will work much better in the earthy Makara/ Capricorn. Our rationality will focus on the work to be done and the requirements of the profession and work as these transits strengthen with the degrees of arc traversed by the planets.

Mercury has been wanting its roots, wherever they may be in your own horoscope. This desire will now transmute into productive and profitable action and if the preceding transit has been good for some reason then for those in mainstream working life, this next might be even better.
Moon is excellent to gauge fructification, being one half of cosmic royalty and shows things happening.  It forms the celebrated Gajakeśarī Yoga with the transit Jupiter due to its location in Pisces/Mīna Rāśi/Meena Rashi  and also aspects the Mercury-Venus combination in Sagittarius with Rāśi Dṛṣṭi. Circumstances are such that excellence is manifesting easily with the excellent. Of course Mercury is moving to Capricorn but as if charged with this prowess and energy it acquired in the divine optimism of Dhanuṣa to be released in the action of Makara.
