A lot is been said, discussed and deliberated over the coming together of the planets in Capricorn! Well, once in a while even planets need to have a party, sure enough not always you get such a staggering audience coming together in one sign, so from that perspective, these events are far spaced, but every now and then you have planets coming together! Join me here as we try to decode this space in easy, simple terms and know whether you should be excited or worried about this and how this may eventually impact you! So here we go!
Sure enough, there are the ancient texts, shlokas and writings of the great sages that give a comprehensive technical overview and guidance towards this space of planetary conjunctions and stacking up in one house/sign, but I will limit this article to some simple easy to decipher ways of interpretation, so that you know where to look, what to see and how to figure out your life for the coming few weeks!
To begin with the planets are coming together in Makara (Capricorn) with the sign lord Shani (Saturn) very much present there and who are coming to pay the visit, well we already have Guru (Jupiter) there since last few months, Surya (Sun) moved in here on 14 Jan and will be here until 12th Feb , Shukra (Venus) , Buddha (Mercury) too have made it and the Chandra (Moon) will be there for two days. All these planets will be together for two days and that is what the whole noise over the social media space is about! Surya moves into Kumbha (Aquarius) on 13th Feb. The two days earmarked for this planetary party are the 10th and 11th of Feb! So how do we decipher this? Well read on!
First things first, identify which house of your chart these planets are transiting and where are their aspects landing up, simultaneously you will need to check where they are originally placed in your chart as well. You see, if planets that are helpful to you, transit in a benefic way and also share a benefic aspect- needless to say you will be riding on the crest of the wave- perhaps the best time; but if these planets are afflicted or have a negative indication through your natal chart placement, their avasthas, mutual associations, house placements, ashtakavarga scores and operating the dasha/sub-dasha periods, then you will have to weigh in and decipher the impact with greater care and understand well how and which planets from this party circuit seem to have a stronger grip in the story of your life!
Not to confuse you or scare, but if the party lord- Shani (Saturn) is well placed, more or less the impact of negative manifestations will be greatly reduced, however if it is afflicted then there will be a lot of development, movement associated with the bhava (house) in which this party is going on and the bhavas that are getting aspected by this commotion! In layman terms there is a terrace party happening across the street and if you like the music coming your way in your house (which is being aspected) you will like it and if you don’t like the music- well that’s what negative impact of planets is all about- by themselves and through their aspect!
Keeping it simple, take a holistic view of what is unfolding in your chart and don’t bite into the temptation to pivot on one planet over the other, needless to say, in no time, the fast moving planets, Mercury and Venus will begin to move ahead and out of Makara (sure enough Mercury being retrograde- will remain stationed longer then usual- that is one thing you may want to pay attention to!) and as the planets begin to come loose of this party mood- little sanity will be instilled, but sure enough not before the impact has been felt, the party goers and watchers both!
Do take extra care with regards to the respective house significations, if this transit is through your 2nd, 4th, 7th or 11th Bhava as the challenges could be multipronged and seeking simultaneous attention! Sure enough there are other technical aspects around planetary avasthas especially with Jupiter and Saturn, but I will not delve into that space for now!
Well, to conclude, nothing to worry about without reason- for all that planetary transits do is to amplify the promise of your birth chart each and every time, because with every transit cycle- although the bhavas remain the same, by virtue of the operational Dasha/ Antardasha the flavour, intensity and manifestation will be radically different, but never divergent- if transit through a bhava has been beneficial for a planet in an earlier phase, the benefic impact may amplify or reduce based on other conditions of mutual aspects and dashas, but that will never turn to be bad per say or completely negative in the context of a U turn, unless the antardasha in operation is of a severely afflicted and stronger malefic in the chart!
The best thing to do is, follow routine, avoid major changes unless left with no options and keep communication documented, crisp and factually verified especially as long as it remains retrograde, once Mercury becomes direct and resumes forward motion to enter Kumbha and join Sun there, things will begin to ease out and intelligence will seem to be sane again! Not to forget our friends Rahu is watching this show, so is Mangala (Mars)! The next big show will be when Mangala (Mars) moves ahead to say hello to Rahu!
I leave you with these thoughts for now, will be back soon as I have something to share, until then stay wise, stay safe and yes, enjoy your planetary party!
