Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces, from 04:38 to 04:38° (stationary).

Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 19:11 to 19:04°. Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 19-degree range from September 23rd until November 29th.

Quote of the Week:
“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh
