The addition of Ketu, Jupiter and Mercury to this mix, especially in Jupiter's territory, could signal a time of reckoning in the realm of personal responsibility. The weakness, corruption and decay revealed throughout the summer is begging to be broken apart, cleansed and transmuted; if that has not already begun after possibly painful breakups, disappointments or other means of creating separation, be ready for things to move, ready or not.
We are coming to a time where the desires of the individual will need to be balanced and integrated with the needs of the collective. Some will gain and some will lose, but a new point of balance is in the works. Where the Sun travels, light comes into dark corners and the pests that hide in the cracks will be forced out of their comfort zones.
While the Sun and Saturn are going head-to-head, Jupiter presides as the judge, Mercury is present to witness and record while Ketu perennially is present to break apart the illusion of material entrapment.
However this plays out on a collective level or on an individual basis, we may be forced to accept responsibility for how we have contributed to the corruption that so readily repulses us. As Mercury moves out of Scorpio on December 25, Mars moves in, which creates a very interesting shape in the South Indian chart style. This shape holds through mid-January and you can see it in the graphic below that depicts the annular solar eclipse on Christmas. The shape reminds me of an arrow, in which the planet Rahu is the fletching, the grouping of planets in Sagittarius is the arrow's tip and Venus and Mars flanking either side of the grouping of planets are the barbs of the arrows.
While there may not be ancient astrological meaning to this configuration per se, the visual does pull into mind the symbol of Sagittarius, which is an arrow, a symbol that is also associated with a few of the nakshatras. Mars in Scorpio is acting as a backup energy or support system for the planets gathered under the spotlight in Sagittarius, just as Venus in Capricorn is creating a supportive energy on the other side.
The pressure cooker environment caused by the combination of planets therein at the moment is being managed by Mars on one side and Venus on the other; both are well placed and could be the saving grace for the current times. Even after the critical moment passes, Mars will be remaining in his own sign of Scorpio through the first week of February.
This may be an indication of a period of focused effort, reorganization or accounting of resources while bravely facing problems that require us to dig deep and stand strong. Depending upon your whereabouts this annular solar eclipse will either occur on December 25 or 26 and it will either be visible or not. In US Mountain time zone, the eclipse happens at around pm, which means that we couldn't see the eclipse of the Sun as it is below the horizon.
The path of eclipse visibility runs through Saudi Arabia, South India and Indonesia, but eclipses tend to make a mark even on regions that may not be witnessing the eclipse. In this case we are having a solar eclipse, which happens during a new Moon, when the Moon passes in front of the Sun from the Earth's perspective, temporarily obscuring the sunlight. These three planets make up the group of the light-giving, positive, sattwic planets. They are also sitting in the nakshatra Mula, lorded by the planet Ketu and the goddess of destruction, Nirriti. And they are surrounded!
Ketu's energy is known to block or obstruct materially but to liberate spiritually, so depending upon one's desires, this could be favorable or utterly frustrating. In the early degrees of Sagittarius is energetic Mercury, our source of exchanges, communication, learning, markets, somewhat outside the orb of the eclipse shadow but close enough to be included in the equation. In the late degrees of Sagittarius sits Saturn, causing pressure and urging detachment, preparing to shift signs. The idea behind eclipses is that a shadow descends upon that which we count on to light our way. This obstruction forces us inward, to draw upon our inner resources to calm and guide us through darkness and difficulty.
It will be profound to witness the temporary loss of the comfort and warmth of the Sun's light, the Moon's compassion and Jupiter's guidance. This shocking experience when channelled toward an expanded understanding helps us to gain perspective about how to manage our minds and spirits as they move through the material world. For when the light returns and the shadow recedes, we have a newfound understanding of our purpose due to the struggle of maintaining perspective when the lights go away. This eclipse seems to mark a turning point for many as we surrender to circumstances, root down into our anchor points and fully let go of that which is actually begging to become free.
The chart below shows the planets configured in the sky at the moment of eclipse. Rahu is in the upper right corner Gemini with the grouping of six planets in Sagittarius in the lower left corner. The signs on either side of Sagittarius are holding Venus and Mars. The arrow is drawn back in the bow. The eclipse is that moment where all stops as we focus on our targets.
When the shadows clear, the time to let fly will come. Where are you pointing your arrow?

As ponderous Saturn prepares to change signs in January, we may want to reflect back on the previous transit of Saturn through Capricorn to understand how Saturn will affect our personal horoscopes. There will be other factors that also affect how this plays out for us, such as the transits of the other slow moving planets like Jupiter and the nodal axis, Rahu north node of the Moon and Ketu south node of the Moon.
Prior to that, there was a short, three-month preview when Saturn entered Capricorn March 20, and retreated back to Sagittarius on June 21, Just as the upcoming transit may imply, with Saturn transiting his own sign of Capricorn, there is a general benefit in having a content, well-placed Saturn that will aid us in laying foundations, building slowly and carefully and leaving behind the trappings that do not serve our goals. In , Jupiter will also be in occupation of his own sign, Sagittarius and by September , we will also see Ketu in Scorpio, a sign that he considers home.
These factors combined make for a positive outlook for , with the realization that new forms emerge from the ashes of the defunct.
Mercury here can be obsessive over a subject and therefore very focused when it comes to study or research. A great time for study then. In love though, we could be so fixated with our beloved that it will feel uncomfortably intense to the point of stalking. At this time those touched by this Mercury retrograde should put their energies into writing a novel rather than sending endless soppy texts and emails to their partner. It is not romantic to feel like you have to reply to endless communications.
Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain. During the Mercury retrograde period, it feels like Mercury has gone down into the underworld. In this realm, closer to spirit, we become more right-brain orientated. It is dark, so other senses are heightened.

We will feel extra sensitive here, psychic even. Everything will seem hyper-real… you will notice things you had overlooked before. This will prompt you to re-evaluate, renovate, re-form, and re-invent.
There are danger spots though. Once we are over the threshold and into the Underworld, we can safely go about our business, knowing that we are in another realm. The same goes for when Mercury is stationing direct, just make sure you give your brain a few days to adjust back to solar thinking. There you will question everything. Before the retrograde is a good time to finish off those Solar left-brain projects and gather information to bring down with you into your retrograde cave.
Then you can slow things down, let yourself be taken into other dimensions, try on different filters, experiment, shine a light on your demons, then recharge and reboot. Retrograde planets are a popular topic in astrology and there is some controversy about the general meaning.
Astro Predictions :
For example, Vedic astrologers see retrograde motion as a beneficial influence, while Western astrologers focus on the negatives, such as lost baggage or missing mail when Mercury is retrograde. I prefer to interpret each retrograde phase based on the aspects and fixed stars from the beginning to the end of the retrograde cycle the shadow zone. Planets do not, of course, move backward, and the apparent reverse motion is due to the elliptical orbits of the earth and planets.
Regardless of the astronomy, the main point is that from where we stand, planets DO appear to move backward from time to time so we should expect this to have some astrological effect on our lives. Generally, we feel the energy of retrograde planets in a more introspective or reserved manner than usual, and there may be a karmic theme or feeling of deja vu depending on the nature of the planet. The feeling of deja vu may also be because the retrograde planet will go over a certain degree three times over.

People who experience this feeling strongest will be those who have a key planet or angle at this spot. For example; Ones IC is hit three times and you are looking to move home. Hit 1 you may see the house you want to buy. Hit 2 Retrograde may be when you have to go through surveys and making sure everything is fine to buy it, this will mean re-evaluating finances, whatever you have to do you are always double checking. Hit 3 maybe when you finally get the go-ahead to move and the issue is resolved.hukusyuu.com/profile/2020-03-15/iphone-8-ortung-aktivieren.php
Your November Horoscope, Revealed
Venus is an archetype underlying the things we are attracted to and the types of relationships we form through a sense of value and aesthetics. Although Mars' retrogrades are the least frequent of all planetary retrogrades, Venus spends the least amount of time in retrograde motion. Venus stations retrograde every eighteen months, moving backward in the sky, retracing fifteen to eighteen degrees of the zodiac over a period of forty-two days. When Venus is in retrograde, issues related to love and money may seem to stagnate, dry up, or run cold—it is not at all uncommon during Venus retrograde to face seemingly insurmountable challenges in relationships.
As with Mercury and Mars retrograde, sometimes old lovers surface for healing and closure.
On a positive note, the tension we experience during these weeks can help us gain perspective. Those who are already in committed relationships may find themselves in a romantic stand-off as affections cool and problems arise, or as is so often the case—resurface. Uncomfortable as it may feel in the moment, Venus retrogrades can be the perfect opportunity to hash out deep-seated romantic misgivings, so we can get back to the business of loving with clarity and confidence. For others, the Venus retrograde reviews may flag serious deal breakers which eventually signal the end of love.
Though the separation itself may be painful, with the benefit of hindsight we may later acknowledge that a disparity of values was bubbling beneath the surface of our relationship, creating tension. Armed with a clearer sense of what we want, and, perhaps, what we cannot do without, the likelihood of attracting the right partnership post-retrograde is greater. New relationships started under the auspices of Venus retrograde may feel as if they have been perfectly crafted to push all our most troublesome buttons. Subconscious shadow material and psychological projections may flood the romantic plane as we find ourselves irrevocably intertwined in intense, charged, or problematic romantic entanglements.
