According to Vedic astrology and the Sidereal Zodiac (which is 23 degrees earlier than the Tropical Zodiac used by Western astrologers, the full Harvest Moon will occur in the sign of Aquarius on Friday the 13th of September. This is a rare event as the next full Moon to fall on Friday the 13th will not be until August 2049. This Moon is also known as the micro Moon as it will appear smaller than other full Moons.
Aquarius is an air sign ruled by Saturn, the significator of dutifulness and responsibility. Moon in Aquarius will support creativity, spirituality, and deep thinking. The focus is on fulfilling your dreams, being inventive, and thinking outside the box.
Moon will be sitting directly across from Mars and the Sun, conjunct in Leo making you feel extra bold, powerful, energetic, and fiery. This conjunction is good for taking initiative.
Aries: Think outside the box when it comes to your income and friendships. Get creative, host a party for your friends and give some focus to your desires. What would fulfill you and how can you get closer to attaining it?
Taurus: Think outside the box when it comes to your career. Get creative, talk to your co-workers and connect on an emotional level. Is there a project you’ve been considering in the work place you’d like to get a jump on?
Gemini: Think outside the box when it comes to your dharma. Get creative, ask yourself what your purpose is in life and meditate on the answer. Fortune awaits you if you just put your energy on what you desire most in life.
Cancer: Think outside the box when it comes to your experiences. This full Moon can bring you some inner and outer transformations, focus on the past, and even some vulnerable feelings. Roll with it and tap into ancient knowledge for guidance.
Leo: Think outside the box when it comes to your partnerships and relationships. Connect…like really connect with your partner. Put down the phone and allow yourself the intimate moments you’ve been yearning for.
Virgo: Think outside the box when it comes to your health and finances. Be delicate with your mind and emotions and get some extra rest. The focus is on your own mental health, so take some time to yourself and make self care a priority.

For my father’s weekly column please see below:
Notes: Mars and Saturn are under the influence of Ketu. Jupiter is under the influence of Mars, which is carrying the influence of Ketu.
Jupiter and Saturn are functional malefic planets for the chart of USA — and they currently afflict 6 of the 12 houses in the transit chart.
Additionally, Venus, ruling national peace, is also afflicted.
This represents dangerous events for the country through October at the earliest. (Saturn’s affliction in the chart is actually through November.
Be vigilant, protect your family and focus on your spiritual practices.
Recent Headlines (Relative to close conjunction of Saturn and Ketu): These have been moved to the bottom of this weekly column – so that people have the option to NOT read this past week’s negative news.
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
- Sun transits out of its own sign, Leo, and into Virgo on Sept. 17th. The recent influence of Mars, Mercury and Ketu on the Sun has now dissipated, which should be helpful for those under recent stress. Sun is weak in degrees, however, until Sept. 22nd. Leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and governments should get extra rest.
- Moon is waxing/waning and transits Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries. The full (harvest) Moon is in Aquarius on Sept. 14th.
- Mars transits Leo, from 21:47 to 26:15°. Mars remains under the 9th aspect of Ketu until Sept. 18th. This is not ideal for the military, police, surgeons, athletes, executives, engineering, construction, firefighters and property matters.
- Mercury transits its exaltation sign, Virgo, from 02:11 to 14:10°. This should be good for stocks, business, technology, communications and intellectual property. Mercury is closely conjunct Venus until Sept. 24th. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries are likely under stress.
- Jupiter transits Scorpio, from 21:52 to 22:35°. Jupiter is under the 4th aspect of Mars until Sept. 21st. This connect law, banking, religion and education with the military, police, sports and property. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies, and countries are likely under stress. Additionally, Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries, (including USA), should be vigilant whenever Jupiter is within 5 degrees of their rising sign degree or any planet — in any house — in their birth or transit chart, by aspect or conjunction. THIS IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE EXTREME STRESS IN THE HOROSCOPE FOR USA – THROUGH SEPTEMBER.
- Venus transits its debilitation sign, from 02:56 to 11:47°. Be patient with women, luxuries, romance, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts. Venus is closely conjunct Mercury until Sept. 24th. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons are likely under stress.
- Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 19:48 to 19:46°. Saturn is retrograde until Sept. 18th and closely conjunct Ketu for 28 weeks — April 5th to October 18th. This rare and slow-moving transit is causing serious problems worldwide – relative to immigrants, the poor and needy, the masses, working-class persons, the elderly, agriculture, manufacturing, and the oil, gas and minerals industries. Adverse events may include pandemics, military conflicts, economic collapses and global-warming issues (fires, floods, cyclones, volcanoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, et al). BE ESPECIALLY VIGILANT SEPT. 16TH TO OCT. 8TH, WHEN SATURN AND KETU ARE WITHIN 1 DEGREE OF EACH OTHER.
- Rahu and Ketu transit Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, from 21:38 to 20:24°. Those persons, companies and countries with planets in “odd” signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius) between 21 to 19 degrees – or whenever Rahu or Ketu are within 5 degrees of a rising sign degree (in any house), or any planet (by aspect or conjunction) should be careful and patient.
