Note: Thank you to everyone who sent an email asking when the column would be coming out next. We are now beginning to implement some positive changes that we look forward to sharing with you.
This week’s column, for example, is being extended to September 18th so that future columns can cover the horoscopes for each rising sign starting on Sunday each week rather than on Thursdays.
(The previous timeline was for a weekly newspaper that is no longer publishing.)
This is also an interesting time as we currently have 4 planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn) plus the northern and southern nodes, Rahu and Ketu, in their own signs, mooltrikona signs and/or exaltation signs. Planets tend to do very well in these signs if strong in degrees and free from afflictions.
Continue to be vigilant, however, through October 20 — as Saturn remains within the 5-degree orb of influence of the ninth aspect of Rahu. (Sorry to keep extending the date – but this transit is quite slow-moving.)
The impact of Rahu on Saturn creates stress relative to Covid-19, the masses, the elderly, immigrants, working-class persons, agriculture, manufacturing and the oil, gas and minerals industries – along with things of the earth, including fires, floods tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, weather issues, etc., such as Hurricane Ida and the historic and catastrophic flooding in northeastern USA.
Prediction from August 19th weekly column:
“Venus is debilitated until Sept. 5. Take care of the women in your life and be patient with law, luxuries, medicine, entertainment and the fine, healing or performing arts.”

Sun transits out of its own sign, Leo, and into Virgo, September 16 at 2:43 p.m. CDT. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but weak in degrees September 11 – 20. Leaders, physicians, administrators and governments should get extra rest.
Moon is waxing and transits Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and into Aquarius. Moon, in Scorpio, is debilitated September 11 – 13. Watch your emotional state and be vigilant around volatile persons and situations.
Mars transits Virgo, from 2:06-8:33°. Mars is weak in degrees until September 13 and comes under the 5th aspect of Rahu starting September 14th. The military, police, surgeons, athletes, realtors, executives, engineers, construction workers and firefighters should be careful and patient.
Mercury transits its exaltation sign, Virgo, from 18:47-28:16°. Mercury is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but weak in degrees September 15 – October 8. Be patient with stocks, business, writing, communications, technology and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits out of Aquarius and into its debilitation sign, Capricorn, September 14 at 3:51 a.m. CDT. Jupiter is retrograde until October 18. The adverse effects are primarily for Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons — but only when Jupiter is within five degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart. Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in its debilitation sign, September 15 – November 19. This is not helpful for law, banking, religion, morality, education, publishing, teaching and consulting.
Venus transits its own sign, Libra, from 3:56-15:24°. This should be favorable for women, design, fashion, medicine, luxuries, advertising, photography, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts. Venus is under the 10th aspect of Saturn, September 13 — 21. Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn from 13:32-13:06°. Saturn remains under the close ninth aspect of Rahu through October 20. This is not ideal for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, working-class persons and immigrants. Manufacturing, agriculture, and the oil, gas and minerals industries – along with things of the earth — are also vulnerable.
Saturn remains in retrograde motion until October 10th. Retrograde Saturn is adverse primarily only for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) – but only when Saturn is within five degrees of the rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart.
Rahu and Ketu transit Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 10:46-10:05°. People, companies and countries with a rising sign between 8 to 12 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) in these same degrees, should exercise a great deal of care and patience.
