A rare astrological event in Sept 2020

A very short post today.

A rare astrological event is coming up for two days, from tomorrow ie 10:45am on 13th Sep to 2pm on 15th Sep. The 6 graha, ie the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will all be in the signs which they own themselves. Rahu and Ketu are respectively in Gemini and Sagittarius. So except Venus, all graha are in their Swa-kshetra, own houses and capable of giving good results.

But Mars though in Aries is retrograde, the ability to take advantage of the energy created is not really there. His energy is turned inwards rather than outwards. So most of us will be rather lethargic when in fact decisive action is required. But some of us will be able to take advantage of what is coming up. Especially if your Birth Mars is retrograde or exalted or placed well you can benefit more. 

If you have noticed these past few days, Mars was moving extremely slowly, practically stationary, then stationary and he started his retrograde movement on 9th Sept. So from 9th to 13th morning, the three outer planets were moving weirdly together.

  • Mars moving very very slowly retrograde.
  • Jupiter stationary, on the verge of going forward (he goes forward on 13th Sep morning.)
  • Saturn slowing down in his retrograde motion (he goes forward on 29th Sept)

The energy generated was so dense, no other word to describe it. Time, its very movement, had changed its speed.

I wonder if you note this, our sense of time is dependent on the movements of the planets. Sometimes time seems to stand still, go very fast or else crawl along or rarely seem to rewind too. This personal sense of time is dependent on the transits of the planets. People who are highly influenced by Saturn (either in birth chart or in transit) will have this maximum ‘sense’ of Time.

Scorpio and its Strange Karma

So Jupiter becomes forward tomorrow morning. And we have this unique opportunity coming up for 2.25days immediately after that. So make use of the time coming up.

Technically it is Pitru-paksh going on, the souls of the departed ancestors are back on this dimension, Martya-lok for 16days. During the Pitru-paksh period, no pujas are performed. ie you cannot get a Brahmin/ Pujari to come over for doing Nav-graha puja or Shanti-homa or anything of this sort. Pitru-paksh, is from the Purnima/full moon to the No-moon./Amavasya of the of Bhadrapad month. Only tarpan-vidhi are possible and are performed for the departed ancestors. This is their time. The energy generated is suitable only for the departed ancestors not for the deities or living people. (For me personally this is a very tedious time as all my dead ancestors, from my Mom to the others are back demanding my time as I sleep at night. Can’t wait for this window to shut on the No-Moon/Sarva-pitri Amavasya.)

So you can do any of these following as a personal practice in your own house, sitting in front of your household deities/puja ghar. eg Recite the Gayatri mantra 108 times, do your Dhyan using your personal Dhyan mantra (Soham or Hamsa or OM), recite the mantra, shloka, stotra of the planets, deities you like etc. If you cannot do anything at all, then mentally recite the Soham or Hamsa or Om with your breath whenever you can. Use the energy of the coming time to strengthen your own self in any way you can. If you strengthen yourself on the spiritual front you gain the energy to drive your material outer world too. The source of all energy within is reflected in the without.

Then on 23rd Sep, Ketu finally enters Scorpio leaving Jupiter alone in Sagittarius. Jupiter will be here till 20th Nov after which he goes into Capricorn and gets debilitated again. And Saturn will be turn forward from 29th Sept. This is the real window of opportunity about 1.5 mths where Jupiter and Saturn both are capable of giving powerful results. One thing to remember is that Mars will be retrograde till 14th Nov, so most of us will feel the lethargy and not act with confidence to grasp what will be offered. The energy release will be so high that whatever you have lost in this rather traumatic Ketu in Sagittarius transit, will be converted to auspicious benefits. So try to remain aware and act this period. You can trigger positive changes for yourself which will give significant gains after Dec 2020.

Plan your day using the Choghadiya

    What about Venus position in Cancer?


    • astrologerbydefault September 13, 2020 / 7:41 pm

      Hi there
      Venus in Cancer will give results as per the house it falls in the birth chart. Technically Venus does not like its owner Moon but he can work reasonably well in the Cancer environment.
      general readings are people will appreciate the keywords of Moon and Cancer during this transit,
      ie appreciate or be drawn towards things which give them emotional security etc,
      so as a general trend expect people to want to get in touch with their mothers/maternal figures, desire to eat nourishing food, take care of their homes/ vehicles/ landed properties etc. some might visit their home villages during this time, most will desire stability in some way or the other or want to be in touch with their home culture/tradition.

    Sorry typo, Mercury at 21°.

    When you say ‘use the energy of mars or jup etc ‘

    where shall we use it ? Inner world or outer world ?

    How do we even know whether we are getting the energies ?

    I don’t know astrological meaning of using energies..

    Can you put two words..

    Thank you..


    • astrologerbydefault September 14, 2020 / 12:28 pm

      Hi there
      By ‘using the energy’ i mean you can do the following depending on what applies to ur own chart

      Houses/ signs etc connected to tht planet will show some changes.
      There may be some opportunities coming from those aspects of life .
      Or challenges and disturbances.
      U might be required to give your time/ attention to those aspects.
      These will gain importance during this transit.

      Giving things connected to that planet in charity.
      doing a 108 mental jaap of that planets mantra. So that it helps balance out or channelise the energy.

      Acting in an intelligent manner by anticipating events. This is necessary

      Eg ketu in 4th house means separating from residence family mother etc. so if ur mom is ill pay attention get all medical tests done. U might get a super job opportunity where you will have to live alone in some other town. Ur food habits will get disturbed etc. so act proactively so tht u can go with the flow of energy rather than fighting it.

    Hi ,

    My request to you is for a post on medical astrology-n simple real life practical remedies like yogasan which improves the condition of planets n help to maintain health…

    1. I have seen videos which explains about
    nakshatra their qualities, navamsa etc.
    But the information given are just what
    is in the book only..deity, some words
    on nakshatra lord people born in it etc
    But nobody has written with experience
    I mean their experience..
    Can u write please ?

    2. Why am I asking ?
    There’s a program on TV.. where an
    astrologer speaks only based on
    nakshatra..people tell them their
    Name n nakshatra he speaks about
    their health problems..
    But for remedies he’s inviting them
    for consultation…

    Why am I interested ?
    He says , just by knowing your tithi
    nakshatra Rashi, he can tell about your
    family history for 300 years ????

    He gives many points which I’m not
    able to understand.like

    Why a person is born on a particular
    Day? Particular tithi? Why he’s facing
    the probs he’s facing? Which
    nakshatra people r born to which
    parents ? etc..

    According to him Ur probs will not be
    solved until u remove, clean ,dosha of
    90% of the probs belong to marriage.
    I read about nakshatra in atleast 4 books n seen 20 topics about nakshatra written by astrology bloggers..watched videos on nakshatra umpteen number of times..

    Nowhere it’s mentioned about what that person is Saying ..

    According to him Ganda nakshatra viz

    Ketu nakshatras (Ashwini, mula, magha)
    Merc naks ( revati jyesta ashlesha)
    will always face probs ..95% marriage fails

    Most of the people who face marriage or finance belong to these nakshatra ..
    And mothers who call for sons probs belong to jyesta, bharani ..

    If a child is born in bharani then father
    Will become bankrupt, father mother will be separated etc

    Chitra nakshatra born child makes their parents lose peace , wealth, respect n will face legal probs etc

    He says why you people not understand this , get married n face problems..
    Filter the doshas n then get married , start work , start business..etc

    Your health problems can be cured without medicines if u understand nakshatra tithi ..

    If it’s really so why no mention of it in books ? Or by astrologer, purohits who do marriage rituals..? lakhs of people could benefit …

    He never prescribes puja homa mantra..
    Says some remedies for which we have to consult him ..

    When u become can u plz shed some light on it..?

    Thank you

      Hi there
      Nakshatra are very important in Jyotish as they are linked to the navamsha and to your deeper sub-conscious self
      i do not trust astrologers who promote themselvs on TV. believe them or not tht is your personal decision.
      i have written about the nakshatra in some of my past posts. u can use the index page or search bar to find these

    Thankyou for the analysis 🙏

    Hello, although not related to this post, I had a query regarding interpreting troubling intense sexual desires through chart.
    How to know if your desires are part of your left over karma and thus they have to be indulged and experienced to some extent and then you can be free OR they are impressions of past life experiences and in this lifetime you need not get into these activities for your spiritual progress. Traditional ethics and spirituality give a clear answer to this question, but as you have said regarding the two gurus, Venus and Jupiter, that one may need to fine tune spirituality to one’s own self.

    Can you please provide the knowledge to make these decisions on reading the chart. Thank you


    • astrologerbydefault September 14, 2020 / 4:57 pm

      Hi there
      karmic desires always involve Rahu, and his role is to finally make you disillusioned. . over-reach and fall on the face is his way of working,
      so indulging in desires is not a good idea ,
      do your personal sadhana, as over time these superficial desires fade and only the deepest internal desire to Realise one self remains.
      but what you do about your desires is your own decision


  11. Manjunath September 14, 2020 / 12:48 pm

    Hi Madam,
    Thanks for the great article.

    It would be really great if you can give insights about upcoming ‘Adhik Maas’ and how to use this extra lunar month to one’s spiritual advantage.

    Kind Regards,


  12. Deepika September 14, 2020 / 1:05 pm

    What suggestions would you give to a person whose Atmakarka is in a paramneecha awastha in chart? I often question my own abilities and even after knowing whats best for me , I am unable to take decisions..


    • astrologerbydefault September 14, 2020 / 4:54 pm

      HI there
      Depending on what planet it is you can try remedies from Mantra jaap to doing Homa etc. . If you feel indecisive try to strengthen your 3rd house
      (i have written on this use the index page to locate them)


  13. Mahima Kansal September 14, 2020 / 1:28 pm

    Hello Mam,
    can you please tell how to interpret ‘multiple planets conjunct in same house’?



    • astrologerbydefault September 14, 2020 / 4:51 pm

      Hi there
      I have written on graha-yuddha or planetary war in a post (do use the index page to locate it)
      in addition you will use the divisional charts relevant to the question to check out how they will perform

      generally use the following to add more detail to your analysis
      graha yuddha
      the shad-bala
      the avasthaas
      and in this the navamsha they go to is important


      • Mahima Kansal September 14, 2020 / 5:16 pm

        Mam you have already written on navamsha and graha yuddha in your articles. And many astrology books do talk about shadbala calculation.
        But could you please write a
        post about planetary avasthaas, i havent found much data on it.
