Sankranti-―Points of Transcendence when planets switch constellations:

Sun moves into Virgo on September 17 at 12:35 AM until October 17 at 12:35 PM. This shifts the National and individual focus from expansive projects and greater leadership for the upliftment of society to problem solving using communication networks and logic. This will especially affect people with Virgo and Pisces rising signs (or Sun/Moon in these signs). 

Mars moves into Virgo constellation on September 24 at 6:05 PM and stays there till November 10 at 1:55 AM. Once Mars moves into Virgo there will be a tendency to focus on problem solving and making use of executive energy to work on solutions. Because Sun will also be in Virgo as well as Venus, the energy will add intensity for those with Virgo, Pisces or Aries rising signs (or Sun/Moon in these signs). Venus being Neecha or subdued with Mars and Sun in this sign can may give rise to arguments in relationships if one is not careful.

Mercury moves into Virgo constellation On September 10 at 4:30 PM and stays there till September 29 at 12:25 AM. Once Mercury moves into Virgo it emphasizes use of intellect for solving problems through hard logic. Mercury is powerful or exalted in this position. This position in September particularly affects people with Gemini and Virgo ascendents (or Moon/Sun in those signs). It also affects people who are Pisces rising (or Sun/Moon in this constellation) bringing influence of strengthening relationships and fostering better communication.

Mercury then moves into Libra constellation September 29 at 12:25 AM and stays there till October 23 at 10:45 AM. Mercury being in Libra will energize communication for improved relationships both on individual as well as societal level. This position of Mercury in October particularly affects people with Libra, Gemini and Virgo ascendents (or Moon/Sun in signs). 

Venus moves into Virgo constellation on September 9 at 1:10 PM and stays there till October 3 at 4:45 PM. This shifts the artistic energy of Venus to be applied for intellectual/healing problem solving. Venus will be also combust or close to Sun which can create more passion and warmth in relationships. However Venus is subdued (neecha/humble introverted) in Virgo which could bring a tendency for jealousy this especially could intensify when Mars will also be in Virgo starting Sep. 24. This particularly influences people with Virgo, Libra and Taurus and Pisces Rising signs (or Moon/Sun in these signs).

Rahu stays in Gemini constellation till Sep. 23, 2020. This brings expansion energy to communication and communication systems. It favors exploring new technologies of communication. This transit may bring tendency for wanting greater freedom and independence in relationships for Sagittarius rising sogns (or Moon/ Sun i. This constellation). This transit may affect people more with Sagittarius and Gemini Rising signs (or Sun/Moon in these signs).

Ketu stays in Sagittarius constellation till Sep. 23, 2020. It brings in a tendency of spiritual transcendence to spiritual activities of teaching or law. For people with Gemini rising signs (or Sun/Moon in this sign) it can bring a letting go of attachment in relationship, and faster turnover in meeting new people. This position of Ketu may be felt more by people with Sagittarius and Gemini Rising signs (or Sun/Moon in these signs). 


Jupiter stays in Scorpio constellation where it reveals deep inner knowledge for transforming and healing. This month it stops being retrograde on Sep. 11 which gives tendency for more enthusiasm and expansion as well as legal matters moving forward again. Jupiter in Scorpio may be felt more by people with Scorpio rising signs or Sun/ Moon in Scorpio.

Saturn is in the Sagittarius constellation and will stay there this year. In Sagittarius Saturn represents purification of dharma or higher purpose. This position will affect more profoundly people with Sagittarius, Gemini, Capricorn and Aquarius rising signs (or Sun/Moon in these signs). For Sagittarius and Gemini rising signs (or Sun/ Moon in these signs it may be bringing more focus on personal needs as well as attention on relationship/ marriage. For the USA it represents purification of the basis of the nation, including government and all aspects of business and homeland. 

Saturn stays retrograde till Sep. 19 indicating work on restructuring matters on individual level as well as on the national level. Retrograde Saturn can also indicate some delay in things crystallizing, especially in the area of land, building and agriculture. Starting the 19 th, Saturn going direct again will help manifest one’s projects. 


KALA BHAIRAVA: September 21 from 7:50 AM until September 22 at 7:19 AM (8th Lunar day each month) celebrates the appearance of Kala Bhairava, a special aspect of Lord Shiva who appeared and cut of the fifth head of the Creator Brahma, leaving 4 heads facing different directions. (Note preview: October 4 from 9:20 PM till October 5 at 10:23 PM is another cycle of Kala Bhairava day).

The real symbolism of this is that Creation has four directions but the fifth direction is the Transcendental Pure Consciousness which belongs to Shiva ( Almighty God as Supreme Silence). On this day it is traditionalfor Shiva devotees to stay up all night in vigil and make offerings to Bhairava and Parvati ( The Divine Feminine aspect of Almighty God) and also offer libations and oblations to their departed ancestors. Dogs are also offered treats as offerings.

SHANI PRADOSHA falls on the thirteenth lunar day in both the bright half and dark half of the Lunar cycle. This month Shani Pradosha is celebrated September 10 from 2:12 PM until September 11 at 4:36 PM, as well as September 25 from 10:32 PM until September 26 at 7:01 PM.

Fasting and worship of Shiva on Shani Pradosh brings freedom from restrictions, removal of obstacles and troubles, and moksha or Enlightenment. Traditionally in the Vedic Tradition one takes a vow (vrata) to do 11 or 26 such Shani Pradosh worships.

September 26 night is Masik Shiva Ratri (Monthly Night of Shiva) during which time one honors Shiva (Almighty God). This is the Night of Shiva when it is customary to stay up all Night adoring the Supreme Being as Shiva, God as the Absolute Supreme Silent Self. It is said that on this Night the Absolute (Shiva) accepts the Creation as His own Nature--giving rise to the full awakening of Enlightenment as the Unity of Absolute and Relative. 

The real meaning of staying up all night on Shiva Ratri evening is being awake perpetually in the state of Enlightenment/ God Realization. Also during this time it is traditional to pour milk, honey, sugar ghee and other offerings over a Shiva Lingam while reciting the Yajur Veda hymns known as Rudra Pathe. It is also traditional to read excerpts from Holy Scriptures about Shiva. (See Shiva times above).


September 9 is Parshva Ekadashi. It is a day Holy to Lord Vishnu (Omnipresence of God as Love). It is traditional to fast on such day, and it is said that doing the fast with worship of Lord Vishnu will free one from all sin. The word parshva has to do with turning over. It is symbolic of the Supreme Being as if turning over to the side while resting in preparation for the wintertime. (See Vishnu times). 

September 24 celebrates Indira Ekadashi and is a day Holy to Lord Vishnu (Omnipresence of God as Love). (See Vishnu times). King Indrasena fasted on this day and released his father from sins. The merit of this Ekadashi fast was described by Lord Krishna to Yudhisthira. Fasting on this day is supposed to free both oneself and one's forefathers from sin.

In general Ekadashis commemorates the day Lord Vishnu (God as Omnipresent Love) destroyed the demon Mura (Hence Vishnu is known as Murari). It was the female power or Shakti of Lord Vishnu that appeared to destroy the demon. Because the Shakti emerged on the 11 th Lunar day She was called Ekadashi. The Shakti in the narration of the story asked Lord Vishnu to grant the boon that whosoever worships Vishnu (and his Shakti) on the 11th Lunar day, be granted freedom from sin.


Sep. 9 is Vamana Jayanti, the birth of the dwarf Vishnu Avatar who subdued Bali king of the demons. Bali had taken over the three realms (gross physical, mental and celestial realm). Vaman challenged him for land as much as three paces could cover. Bali agreed and when Lord Vishnu covered all the worlds in two steps, Bali offered his head for the third step in a gesture of surrender. 

Sep. 9 is also known as Kalki Dwadashi. It is a day holy for the 10th Avatar of Vishnu (God as Love) who purifies the evil on earth in order to bring full glory of the Golden Age of High Consciousness known as Sat Yuga. Symbolically He rides through the world on a white horse using the sword of wisdom to cut through ignorance. 

Sep. 10 is Bhuvaneshwari Jayanti, Birth of Mother Divine (Divine Nature as Parvati) — Bhuvaneshvari represents Mother Nature Who gives rise to this physical world. She is representing the 4th aspect of the 10 Mahavidyas or 10 Wisdom aspects of Mother Nature. Peace, Wisdom, Equinimity, Protection from Negativity and Prosperity are just some of the benefits of worship of Bhuvaneshwari (God as Mother Nature Who creates the World).

Sep. 12 is Ananta Chaturdashi celebrated as holy to Ananta the great celestial cobra representing the coils of Infinite time on which Vishnu (God as omnipresence of Love) rests on.

In India sweet offerings are given to the ancestors along the banks of it's major rivers along with meditation and prayer on behalf of one's departed ancestors.

Sep. 23 is the Autumn Equinox when Day and Night are equal. It is another still point of the heavens and is a beautiful time to perform spiritual activities celebrating the Fall season.

Sep. 29 is Navaratri / Nine Days of Mother Divine which culminates on Oct. 10 as Lord Rama’s (representing the Solar Energy) Victory Day of Positivity /Light over Evil / Darkness. 

Navaratri is a time when God as Mother Divine (Durga remover of difficulties) is commemorated to have destroyed the demons which plague humanity, such as anger, greed, lust, etc. It falls around the time of the fall equinox which represents a time of silence preceding winter. The first 3 days of Nava-Ratri are dedicated to Kali (Mother Time), the second three days to Lakshmi (Lady Good Luck), and the last three to Saraswati (Lady Wisdom). This time is especially auspicious for removing duress and bringing in good fortune.

Vijaya Dashami or Victory Day on Oct. 10--commemorates the Victory of Lord Ram over the demonic king of Shri Lanka known as Ravanna. As such it represents the Victory of the forces of Good over the forces of Negativity. It is recorded that through worship of Chandi (Durga) Lord Rama found the secret of destroying Ravanna. On this day statues of Mother Divine as Durga (Remover of Difficulties) are submerged in rivers and other bodies of water
