Venus Enters Libra, Mercury Retrograde Ends, Equinox

Mars enters Sagittarius today, Saturday Sept 17. Mars is happy in Sagittarius: strong for Self-expression, Fighting for one's Beliefs, etc. (see previous post).
Venus enters Libra on Sunday, Sept 18. Venus is happy to be in its own sign for the next four weeks. The planet of Romance in the sign of Harmony & Agreement promotes all Relationships. Venus in Libra is good for finding Compromise and Balance. Venus will not be under any malefic influence while in Libra. Venus stays in Libra until Oct. 13.
(more details on Mars & Venus in this week's video blog)
Mercury Retrograde Ends on Wednesday, Sept 21. The planet of Rational Thinking and Communications goes back to normal forward motion in the zodiac, @ 20 deg Leo. However, Mercury is now closely conjunct Rahu, the eclipse point, which obscures and distorts whatever it contacts. Therefore, Mercury significations are still not operating normally for another week, until Mercury gets some distance away from Rahu. Also: Rahu is an agent of Obsession; Mercury is the planet of Data. Rahu + Mercury =Being Obsessed with the Facts.
The Autumnal Equinox is on Thursday, Sept 22. Designated as the beginning of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the time when the duration of Night and Day are equal. The Sun is crossing over the Celestial Equator; i.e., the midway point of the yearly extremes of its path in the sky. In Vedic Astrology this is considered to be a time of Transition, and therefore Weak for results. Therefore it is Not Recommended for starting new ventures on the day of, and before and after, the equinox.
