On November 3, the lunar node Rahu enters the sidereal Pisces and Ketu sidereal Virgo. Lunar nodes transit from one zodiac sign to the previous about one once every 18 months. This is a significant planetary event of November.
Rahu and Ketu are the points of intersections of the earth’s orbit around the Sun and the Moon’s orbit around the earth. Although these are not planets, they are treated as fictitious planets in astrology since the energy associated with them and their transits through zodiac signs has a significant impact on both at individual and the collective level.
Typically Rahu is considered favorable when it transits through earth or air sign while its counterpart Ketu is favorable when it resides in fire or earth sign. Of course, the house disposition in a natal chart of these planets will further modify their favorability or un-favorability.
As Rahu enters sidereal Pisces on November 3, Pisces being the water sign, Pisces is unfavorable for Rahu. Rahu will be suffocating in Pisces. As a result, on an individual level, for those who have Pisces, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Virgo, Leo, Gemini or Aries as a ninefold (Navamansa) ascendant, and if Rahu is active in their transit charts, they are likely to experience challenging period that might last until Rahu remains active in their transit chart.
For example, if one has Virgo as a ninefold ascendant and if Rahu is active in ones transit chart, and Rahu is unfavorably placed in that person’s natal chart, then that person is likely to run into a serious relationship challenges lasting up to next 18 months. Similarly for a person with Gemini Ninefold ascendant under the similar conditions would likely to experience very serious challenges at work place.
On a collective level, presently Neptune is in Pisces and Neptune loves Pisces, the most favorite zodiac sign for Neptune. But Rahu’s presence in Pisces for next 18 months is certainly going to be challenging for Neptune to create and maintain its positive energy.
As a result, our collective spiritual progress through awareness and understanding of what has been going on around us is likely to take backstage losing its momentum to attend to new challenges emerging from Rahu’s transit in Pisces. Some of the outcomes might be listed as: rise in fake spiritualism disguised under illusionary circumstances, temporary gain in holding on to the power by authoritarian regimes like Russia and China, more violence originated from power grab, hate and racism and increased occurrences in man-made and natural calamities.
As far as slow moving planets are concerned, some of them (Neptune, Uranus, Saturn) continue to be retrograde. As a result, it’s still a period of churning, turmoil, stepping back, introspection and change in all aspects of our personal life but also of our collective life. The collective life includes world affairs, politics (high probability of government shutdown in the United States), media industries, religions, war and warlike climate and mass communications.
However, the good news is earth will be gaining more than average speed in orbiting around the Sun reaching peak by January 3 or 4. For sure, it’s a period of lot of activities on earth. Usually it’s a period of growth at all levels of our collective life. Some of it will certainly be challenging, but it’s a period of finding solutions and marching ahead. … Continue Reading.

Jagdish C. Maheshri
Jagdish C. Maheshri, Ph.D. is a chemical engineer who has been pursuing his interest in astrology in general, and Vedic astrology in particular since 1966. He has analyzed and interpreted thousands of charts and has been researching astrology as a science for nearly forty five years. He discovered a method by which he can accurately time a prediction, the unique Ninefold Progression technique, which can be applied to both the natal and progressive horoscope charts of an individual. He has explained the technique and its application in detail in his book, “It’s all in Timing”.
He believes that the very nature in which astrology affects an individual has kept it from being universally accepted. Because it is very easy for a normal individual to become overwhelmed with astrology to the extent that the individual loses control of his or her life by literally becoming a slave of astrology. But when used as guidance, astrology becomes a blessing. It allows a person to enrich and enhance his life by helping uncover his hidden talents and abilities, it further helps him discover who he or she is, and even helps provide meaning to life.
As a professional astrologer with over forty years of practice, he has convincingly explained the nature of rapid evolutionary human growth, especially in the area of technical fields in last couple of centuries through the influence of planetary motions on our collective human conscious.
According to him, astrology never solves your problems. It’s you who solve them! But you can benefit from astrology when you consider it as a means of personal guidance, a source of second opinion, or a way of confirming things that you already have some idea about. It certainly can be treated as a science of preventive maintenance through the insight it provides us to understand our weaknesses, strengths, capabilities and limitations; and the dynamic nature of our life. Having some guidance about our natural aptitudes, capabilities, and limitations, astrology certainly provides an opportunity to improve our chances of making best life choices and set right life goals. With the help of knowledge of favorable as well as not-so-favorable periods an individual can use that knowledge to his or her advantage to achieve most in life.
