FORECAST FOR LAGNA/ASCENDANT
ARIES: Apart from the Moon who passes 12th thru 3rd house this week, the other major transit is of Mercury who swings to the 9th house on Wednesday and will be there until Jan 26. The Moon is very nice for care giving activities: kids and elders' homes etc and great for pilgrimages, retreats, today and tomorrow. If you feel your kundalini is aroused Tuesday-Thursday it is the Moon with Rahu in Lagna [like what happened to Friedrich Nietzsche] but like I said last week, the lower type Aries may find it hard to consciously manage the strong sensuality in mega watts generated by Moon and Rahu, opposed by Venus, Mars and Ketu in the house of sexuality. The weekend is fulfilling for emotional balance, happiness in the family, learning and business: real estate, education, hospitality, garments, mining etc. Mercury to the 9th generally involves you with places of higher learning, judiciary/law enforcement and good for father's business as well. The mutual exchange of 6/9 houses by Mercury and Jupiter strongly supports these activities plus travel. [see other signs]
TAURUS:  For you, the money-man is Mercury who goes to the 8th house on Wednesday [See Aries] Note his Gandantha thru Dec 6th for the downside , which is: problems with kids, confused mind, back problems, losses in investments, tensions with lovers. The mutual exchange with Jupiter [especially if the AshtakaVargas are weak in your chart] can aggravate above results plus possible miscarriage, difficulty in child birth as well. The plus side is the support for profound knowledge and research, love for mystery or science fiction etc, and ability to concentrate for long periods. Mars and Venus on the 6/12 axis with the Nodes urge you to be very cool with partner, ensure you do not run into debts, and take good care of your health. The Sun is fine for prestige. [See Aries down] 
GEMINI: With Venus out of MB from Tuesday, and in Libra your 5th house, it is nice for fortune and creativity and success in learning and with kids. Mars can energize strong passion and deep cravings and on the plus side can cause a Sanka Yoga for power and success with Venus too.. Mercury and the Sun in the 6th are great for adventure. . Note Gandantha of Mercury Nov 20-24 and be more safety conscious, at home and when driving. On Wednesday Mercury goes to the 7th house and note his Gandanthe thru Dec 6 [See Aries down] for possible tensions with spouse and also mother. The plus side after Dec 6 and thru Jan 26 is great support from partner [emotional, material] success in partnerships, in educational/tuition classes, vehicles, real estate, food, transport with strong support from partner and mother. The Moon helps $$$ this week.
CANCER:  So, if you had fun with AshtakaVargas in your chart , here is very durable Queen Elizabeth II's SAV 10-Lagna houses: 29, 39, 28, 32. And another popular tip about the directions: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius is East. Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn is North. Gemini, Libra, Aquarius is West, and Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces is South. Mercury to the 6th house [once out of Gandantha, see Aries down] is nice for good relations with siblings, success thru effort, self-improvement, interest in defence/law enforcement, medico/legal fields. Venus and Mars are very nice for $$$. A good idea of your financial fortune can also be had from working out the Indu Lagna from your horoscope. It is simple and fun. Here, the 7 major planets are given a unique value in units: Sun 30, Moon 16, Mars 6, Mercury 8, Jupiter 10, Venus 12 and Saturn 1. Now add the units of the 9th lord [of fortune] from the Lagna, and also 9th lord from the natal Moon. Deduct /expunge multiples of 12 and note the remainder. And count from the Moon as many houses as indicated by the remainder. For example: if your 9th lord from the Lagna is Saturn , his value is 1. If your 9th lord from the Moon is Venus it is 12. Add both and you get 13. Deduct 12 and you get 1. Your Indu Lagna counted 1 from the Moon is the sign where the Moon was placed itself. [In astrology, a sign/house a planet sits is always counted as the 1st house or sign] Since the Moon sign is the Indu Lagna, see how powerful is the Moon is for fortune. Treat the Moon sign as the Lagna here and check out the strength of the lords of 1,2, 5,9,10 and 11th for Dhana Yoga and see if the AshtakaVargas are supporting those yogas. The dashas of those planets and their good transits [also in upachaya houses or 3,6,10,11] give wealth accordingly. 
 LEO: Sun is in the 4th house with the money-man Mercury. Very nice for business deals, expanding assets, buying house and property, vehicles, investing on education and on agriculture/farming. All major travel houses are loaded: 6/7 lord Saturn in the 12th foreign house. 3/9 lords Venus and Mars along the 3/9 [travel] axis with the Nodes. And Mars and Venus are your 9/10 lords as well for fortune and power. All that was said last week is good and getting better with Mercury going to the 5th house on Wednesday. See Aries down. Mercury in the 5th house and mutual exchange of 2/5 houses with Jupiter is excellent for significant fortune, success of kids, very effective communication, childbirth.
VIRGO:   Mercury to the 4th and in mutual exchange of Lagna and 4th house with Jupiter is excellent for fortune, prestige and high status. See Cancer for the Indu Lagna. Let's work another example: Your 9th lord from Lagna is Venus whose value is 12. If your natal Moon was sitting in Pisces [your 7th house] the 9th from the Moon is Scorpio/Mars whose value is 6. Add both you get 18. Deduct 12 you get 6. Count 6 from the Moon, and your Indu Lagna is Leo whose lord is the Sun. Suppose your Sun was at Aries [exalted] which is the 9th from the Indu Lagna it will be excellent. If Mars was also exalted [in Capricorn, the 6th house and part of Artha Trine] Mars-Sun dahas, in association with Mercury [ best as he is both 2/11 lord] Jupiter 5th lord and Venus the 10th lord, will be the best for wealth and financial fortune, provided they are supported by high AshtakaVarga.  
LIBRA   Mercury and Sun, your 9/11 lords in the 2nd house is nice for financial fortune. Check out your Indu Lagna [see Cancer and Virgo] for more financial fortune. The Moon is fine except for enmity on the work place but nice for research Friday thru Sunday afternoon. Last week , we said your travel houses were loaded. And Mercury to the 3rd house and mutual exchange of 3/12 houses by Jupiter and Mercury [if supported by dashas] are sure to give journeys, pilgrimages, and your efforts bringing good success in foreign countries. Good things said last week are getting better
SCORPIO:  Mercury is your 11th lord of gain and Jupiter is even better, the 2/5 lord of $$$ and fortune. And, they exchange 2/11 houses, great for inflow of wealth, if other factors like dasas, ashtakavarga are supportive. See Cancer and Virgo for how to work out the Indu Lagna for more financial fortune. With Sun strong in the Lagna, the career gets more power , so is your public life, power and authority. The Moon is fine in 5th house [thru Tuesday] for fortune and success of kids, service, judiciary, defence, law enforcement, healing [Tuesday thru Friday] and for productive journeys and romance Friday thru Sunday.
SAGITTARIUS:  The yoga of 9/10 lords Sun/Mercury rolls thru Wednesday in the 12th house: fortune thru foreign sources, fulfilling spiritual travel, and some temporary separation from father or father may go overseas etc as discussed last week. Wednesday thru Jan 26 Lagna and 10th lord [Jupiter/Mercury exchange 1/10 houses and this is excellent for career. You will be able to launch or handle very challenging ventures, project yourself powerfully, go all out to get the desired results, good health and tenacity and you will enjoy what you do. Next time Sun and Mercury meet will be in Lagna : Dec 15- Jan 14 promising true glory. See Aries down for Indu Lagna
CAPRICORN: Mercury comes to the 12th house. You will be urged to donate to spiritual or charitable causes and build a fortune thru foreign sources [import/export, foreign funding etc] or places. As the 6th lord, Mercury will be strongly supporting community service projects, care-giving, healing. Some travel is certain and depending on running dasas, it could be long journeys. Will seek liberation thru service. The mutual exchange of 9/12 houses by Mercury and Jupiter supports all these indications. Nice for father to seek his fortune away from home as well. See Aries down for Indu Lagna
AQUARIUS:   Mercury comes to the 11th house on Wednesday. See Aries down for Indu Lagna. On Gandantha thru Dec 6 he could manifest some negative indications: lack of support from friends, elder siblings and possible conflict between wife and kids, health issues and inability to save. On the plus side Mercury can bring money from unearned sources [gifts, insurance etc] and also from investigative or mystical work, anti-aging, nutritional supplements etc. As the 5th lord profits by the grace of previous karma/poorva punya, from investments, sports, entertainment and academic work.
PISCES: Mercury comes to the 10th house on Wednesday and forma a mutual exchange of 7/10 houses with Lagna Lord Jupiter.This is excellent for prestige in career or public life. Partner plays a significant role in success. Enhances your business skills, diplomacy and people skills. Long journeys on business bring good results. The Sun can help you excel in job performance/service, and enhance the benefits from higher learning and the commitment to justice. You will be urged to support centers of higher learning and also to spiritual organizations. See Aries down for Indu Lagna

FORECAST FOR LAGNA/ASCENDANT
ARIES: The week looks like rush hour traffic [celestial, of course] with busy planetary movements, ingresses etc. The major ones being: the big guy Sun goes to Scorpio on Tuesday, Venus to her own Moola Trikona/MT Libra on Wednesday, and Saturn enters Punavasu Nakshatra in retrogression on Thursday thru June 25, 05. Note, I use True Nodes [as opposed to Mean, calculated on Lahiri Ayanamsa] and Ketu will come to Chitra on Dec 16. The Moon, this week passes Scorpio thru Aquarius. For the Sun, Scorpio is your 8th house. And thru Friday he will be on fortunate PushKara or PN. What it means is that for worldly aspirations it can tempt you to think of joint financial ventures especially in speculative/stock market, sports/entertainment or kid stuff or investing on kids' future /insurance plans etc. And with Mercury also parked there, on healing or defence/law enforcement/correctional projects. Excellent for inner work. With Venus coming to her own 7th house, marriage for those seeking, partnership ventures and career related travel. Get a good handle on passion though, with Mars and Venus hooked on Rahu-Ketu Axis. It's scary. The lower type Aries can commit sex crimes if other factors support in individual charts. The Moon very nice for fortune passing 9,10,11 houses from Monday. [See other signs for more info] 
TAURUS:  Last week we said that by Monday [tomorrow and thru Tuesday night] Mars will conjunct Ketu and will oppose Rahu along 6/12 house axis. The danger here is possible hurt to partner or partner away from home , journey or on business or hurting the relationship it self. Your travel houses are loaded with 8 out of 9 planets. Awesome energy in the 6th house, your challenge is to be in control, as the energy to overcome competition could be overwhelming. The Sun and Mercury are very nice in the 7th house for public life, recovery of lost wealth and expansion of assets. YogaKaraka Saturn to Punavasu [see Aries] a goal oriented lunar mansion that helps success in all ventures except partnership business. When Saturn hits the last quarter or 4th pada [Thursday-Jan 13] be extra nice to mom, watch your temper, and be more open to dialogue the classics say. Punavasu also gives goal or job related travel, deputations etc. 
GEMINI: The best is Yoga Karaka or most helpful Venus coming to her own 5th house of fortune, kids and creativity. This is her Moola Trikona/MT [next best to exaltation] sign. She is MT Wednesday thru Nov 30. Her MB/Mrityu Bhaga Nov 21-22 can be aggravated by unpredictable and provocative company: Mars and the Nodes. Meaning: chance of making wrong investments, problems with kids and spiritual people and can challenge your integrity. Rahu is said to give good material gain and success in the 11th house. When Venus is strong in Libra your 5th house, it is truly great for fortune and creativity and success in learning and with kids. When Venus is with Ketu, [if dasas etc are supportive] some loss thru a scheming person of the opposite sex. Mars can energize strong passion and deep cravings and on the plus side can cause a Sanka Yoga for power and success with Venus too.. Mercury and the Sun in the 6th are great for adventure. [I wouldn't endorse any pre-emptive stuff though] See Aries down. Note Gandantha of Mercury Nov 20-24 and be more safety conscious, at home and when driving.
CANCER:  The AshtakaVargas definitely is a powerful tool for understanding charts. Strongly recommended by Parashara and Varahamihira, let's look at a few indicators of the point distribution today.. Here is one: In Sarva Ashtaka Varga in a birth chart, if there are more bindus or benefic points in the 11th house of gain than in the 10th of efforts/career. More bindus in the 11th than in the 12th of losses, fears. More bindus in the 1st/Lagna [personality, powerful self projection] than in the 12th , it is a strong indication of successful and happy life. Let me illustrate this with the charts of Bush, Clinton, Kerry and a man who inspired us with a life-long commitment to social change: Gunadasa Kapuge: Here are the bindus of 10, 11, 12 and 1/Lagna houses. Kapuge: 30, 30, 25, 26. Clinton: 33, 34, 21, 32. Bush: 35, 38, 25, 32. Kerry: 34, 32, 25, 25. [See where the power is?] Since most of you have your charts raised, just check them out, even for the fun of it. Incidentally, Bush is Cancer. Kapuge and Clinton are Virgo, and Kerry, Scorpio. The 5/10 lord Mars and 4/11 lords are now in your 4th house for power. Sun and Mercury are in the 5th for reaching goals. See Aries down.
 LEO: Big Guy Sun is in the 4th house with the money-man Mercury. Very nice for business deals, expanding assets, buying house and property, vehicles, investing on education and on agriculture/farming. All major travel houses are loaded: 6/7 lord Saturn in the 12th foreign house. 3/9 lords Venus and Mars along the 3/9 [travel] axis with the Nodes. And Mars and Venus are your 9/10 lords as well for fortune and power. If you need to find out which direction is better for you, try this DIY with the Sarva AshtakaVarga/SAV points in your birth chart. The first 3 signs of the zodiac: Aries-Gemini indicates/prefers East. Cancer-Virgo:South. Libra-Sagittarius:West. And Capricorn-Pisces:North . Now total the SAV values of these 4 groups separately and see which group has more. If it is West, for example, that is the direction for wealth and fulfillment. West could be a city or a country from one's place of birth. If you got more planets in your travel houses [1,3,6,7,9,12] you could be spending more years overseas if supported by the required dasas of course.. See Libra.
VIRGO:   With Mars and Nodes very close to each other pay more attention to your health. If running bad dashas even surgery is indicated, as Mars is involved, upper limbs, respiratory and reproductive areas are shown and with Rahu in the 8th, anything is possible, and diagnostic confusion too. Venus to the 2nd and Saturn in 11th is nice for $$$. Mercury for writing, the Sun for short journeys. But a hot 2/8 axis is about health and also the financial well being of partner. Here is another SAV tip: The kendras/quadrants 1, 4 , 7 , 10 trikonas/trines 5 , 9 of a chart are called Antahkarana /the internal and the other six signs/houses 2,3,6,8,11,12 are called external or bahya. Total the SAV of the 2 groups separately in your chart. If the total of the former is greater [total SAV is 337. By Sun-Saturn only. No Rahu] it is said to bestow more internal joy and fulfillment, greater education, knowledge and prowess. If the latter is more: The above good indications are reduced. See Aries down
LIBRA   Your travel houses are loaded too. Jupiter and Mars being the major players are joined this week by Lagna lord Venus coming to Lagna causing 1/7 house axis hot with four planets, and Saturn Rx [retro] effective form the 9th house as well. Here is another theory on SAV travel or direction. Its says: 1,11,12 houses in a birth chart indicate East. 8,9,10 South. 5,6,7 West. 2,3,4 North. Add the SAV of the 4 groups and see which has more. See Leo. It says the direction which has a total of 54-70 bindus/benefic points gives bad results. 70-90 bindus average results and, over 90 best results. Mercury and the Sun are very nice for $$$ , also from foreign trade or in foreign places. The Moon passes 3rd house Mon-Tue nice for career and 4th [ Wed-Thus] and 5th house Fri and Sat, very nice for fortune and fame/prestige. Passion is energized by Venus, Mars and the Nodes, but take care. 
SCORPIO:  Eight out of the nine planets are in travel houses. See Aries down, especially Leo and Libra. Ruler Mars is in the travel bunch. This 6/12 axis across Libra and Aries also indicate your humanitarian ideals, community service, inner work, glory in foreign places, and litigation and also challenges to intimate and business relationships. The Sun's arrival at Lagna for a month on Tuesday is what you have been waiting for to light up your visibility in the work place. As the Sun moves to the 2nd house of $$$ in a month, Mars comes to Lagna and both planets are on their way to exaltation and so is Venus, all very nice. The Moon passes Lagna- 4 th house this week, good for financial gain, fortune and fame.
SAGITTARIUS:  The best for anything, especially career and fortune is when 9/10 lords meet, and they will, Tuesday thru 24th.The 9th Lord Sun [see Aries down] can give fortune thru foreign sources, fulfilling spiritual travel, and some temporary separation from father or father may go overseas. Mercury can also give travel here being the 7th lord and if running bad dasas tensions with partner. Job offers from outside or change of jobs. This foreign scene [in the shrinking global village] is also played big time by Mars in the 11th house of major gain, that is benefits thru foreign sources, trade or connections. What you build now will give many times its worth when Mercury and Sun come to Lagna. And the exchange of 1/10 houses by Mercury and Jupiter starting Nov 24 and Sun arriving on Dec 12. Very promising
CAPRICORN: The Sun comes to the 11th house on Tuesday [see Aries down] which is ok for unexpected gain or from investigative/research, anti-aging or similar products [health, vitality, life extension] but health itself gets priority: likely eyes, knees, bone and inflammatory problems. Mercury can help here being the 6th lord of hurt/sickness and enemy problems but as the 9th lord can give big gain. Venus and Mars in the 10th is the best being helpful 5/10 and 4/11 lords. Watch Mars Mon-Tuesday though for some sudden, unexpected problem about money on the work place. Apart from that career is helped well.
AQUARIUS:  As Venus and Mars, your 9/10 lords meet on the 9th house Wednesday-Dec 12, and even better in the 10th house [away from the Nodes] Dec 17- Jan 5 your fortune and career will shine very well. Sun, your 7th lord and Mercury , your 5th lord are also in the 10th house. Excellent for power and authority in profession. These two are the best transits as they unfold in the 9/10 houses , that is the best kendra and the best trikona. The lagna lord Saturn is great for prowess/will to win, overcoming opposition in the 6th, and now retrograde, also for fortune and luck. Simply 5 planets are in 9/10 for fortune and expansion, and Saturn in the 5th trikona thru retrogression, that makes 6 out of 9. Rahu best for struggle and hard work in the 3rd. Very nice and getting better
PISCES: Mercury who is nice for higher learning, love of social justice, productive travel and help from parents is joined by the Sun. As 6th lord, the Sun can help you excel in job performance/service, and enhance the benefits from higher learning and the commitment to justice. You will be urged to support centers of higher learning and also to spiritual organizations. As the 7th lord, Mercury can bond heart connections and also give long journeys. See Aries down. You might want to check SAV in your chart as explained. Watch health, yours, partners' and also father's. Those with blood sugar problems will have to me more careful. Also be sure the food is clean. Mars in the 8th and the hot 2/8 house axis urge you to be very cool. 

StarScope: Nov 7-13

FORECAST FOR LAGNA/ASCENDANT
ARIES:  Ruler Mars is on Chitra Nakshatra thru Friday. Also called "Brilliant" and "Star of Prosperity" its symbol is a bright jewel which represents the divine spirit within us. The technical skills attributed to Mars seems to come from the star's deity Vishvakarma, the celestial architect. This star ruled by Mars himself is also said to give great intuitive powers , and "it is also noticed that the native quite often sees a lot of dreams which are actually becoming true." Confronted by adversity, he has the capacity to overcome them and their schemes/conspiracies. He has a soft corner in his heart for the less fortunate and devotes his time and resources generously to improve their lot. This week is nice to make use of these good indications. Yet, as the primary motivation of Chitra is Kama, the challenges discussed [last week] along the 1/7 houses on Rahu Ketu Axis are still good. The Sun gets a little better on PushKara Navamsa this week Tuesday-Friday. Much cool in partnerships, in the outer world/public life is urged. Note also Monday-Wednesday can cause hurt and accidents if you are running bad dasas. [See other signs]
TAURUS:  The Sun rebounds a bit [say 30%] on PN [see Aries] this week having moved 10 degrees away from his neecha span, and also a good 12 degrees from Rahu and Ketu. Which means the intensity of attributes discussed last week [like vehicular accidents and damage to house and property, challenges to emotional joy and academic activities, mother's health etc] turns around for better. The upside of Jupiter/Venus, the expansion of creativity and beauty, success in hobbies, sports, performing arts should roll now. Note Mercury's Mrityu Bhaga/MB today and tomorrow , noon-noon for the passion that Mercury generates can be misdirected in an enemy's house. And Mars the 7th lord comes to the 6th house, not at all great for bliss in relationships is still good, and in fact Mars is getting closer to Rahu and Ketu [and by Monday will be on the same degrees. Several weeks that follow any eclipse is a period that requires cool
GEMINI: Mercury in the 6th house is the one to watch, especially on his MB [see Aries down] today and tomorrow for hurt and accidents. The other is Mars " Less evolved individuals need to be truly conscious of what Mars- on- the- Nodes is fully capable of: addictions, wild passion, deep cravings, aggression and, confusion of the rational mind". Kids, learning, creativity, luck, fortune, investments, hobbies is the areas kind of burnt out along the RKA. Especially when the waning /Amavaka or Ava Moon also get hooked on the RKA Wednesday night- Saturday morning. The Moon is best Today and tomorrow in the 4th with Jupiter and Venus for all good things. And the plus side of Jupiter and Venus [apart from spiritual expansion] happy home environment, success in learning and of kids, partner helping career advancement, and expansion of assets.
CANCER:  When strong and unafflicted, Mars is excellent for learning and also teaching, for enhancing comforts at home including success of kids and inspiration from mom, and expansion of assets like real estate and vehicles, hospitality, transport, agriculture, construction, farming, mining etc. He will try all these here but do not expect much on RKA. The Sun will be strong after the 16th for most of good Mars' indications just mentioned plus benefits from [contracts etc] government agencies, hobbies, entertainment, investments, and persuasive speech. Mercury in the 5th house can tempt you to seek quick business results and risk taking and involvement in sports, entertainment and speculation/investments. On MB [see Aries down] Mercury can reverse these results. Wednesday-Saturday AM, you will be challenged to keep your emotional cool.
 LEO:  Its slow going but next week the big guy Sun will be strong again and in the 4th house generating power and authority, shine on the work place and causing outstanding success in learning, gain thru sales, teaching, real estate, vehicles, projects for the public good thru government agencies or highly placed people. This week expect many journeys and good success in competitive events. Chance for overseas travel for employment or pilgrimage. Overall a better week as the Sun is away from the Nodes and prowess/energy, writing and reasoning skills getting strong again. Note Mars getting closer to Nodes Sunday-Tuesday and watch parents' health.
VIRGO:   Ruler Mercury is in the 3rd house Scorpio thru Nov 24. In enemy camp he has to work extra hard to achieve or reach goals, in competitive events, writing and communication, creative expression and, to harness the support of siblings, buddies and neighbours. As the 10th lord he should manifest good focus, resolve and effort and spirit for success in above indications, and also on the work place and outer world. An oppressed Mars [with Rahu especially] can cause financial distress, harsh/critical speech and problems from eating disorders, and from tobacco and alcohol, problems in the ENT, eyes, GI or reproductive areas. He can adversely affect the partner's financial resources as well. On the plus side, you got Saturn for energy and $$$ and Jupiter and Venus in Lagna for fortune and powerful self projection. Best with Moon Monday-Wednesday
LIBRA   Nothing much has changed from last week. The Sun has got out out of neecha degrees and also away from Rahu's orb of influence and is getting better on PN [see Aries down] Tuesday thru Friday. That can improve opportunities and realistic thinking, and siblings and friends and cash flow. But Mars is getting closer to the Nodes which is not good as he can reduce the bliss in relationships and obstruct your ability to project yourself to the outer world with clarity, and the ability to harmoniously interact with the partner and others in the social world. Mercury and Saturn are the two guys who can help your $$$ better from 2nd and 10th houses respectively. The Moon is fine for $$$f thru to Wednesday night and in the weekend. 
SCORPIO:  Mercury hits MB today and tomorrow in your Lagna. This can make you feel unsupported, and vulnerable to health problems.. The 10th lord Sun is getting better [see Aries down] and your job performance and visibility in the work place is sure to get its lustre back. Ruler Mars is getting closer to the Nodes on their axis and will be on the same degree around next Monday. The downside of this is problems with and possible losses thru aides, foreigners, co workers, medical bills, debts, fines and frustration. The financial fortune is nicely supported by Jupiter, Venus and Saturn.
SAGITTARIUS: Mercury needs to be watched today and tomorrow on his MB for possible financial losses in business/ career, enemy activity and lack of support from supervisors. Frustrations at work are mere passing clouds. However, you may get job offers from outside. Venus can also cause lack of cooperation from co-workers. Yet Jupiter there can see that you are not rattled by these challenges. The 9th lord Sun is also getting better [see Aries down] and can improve your financial fortune gradually and, after the 16th speed up the cash flow especially thru foreign sources. As the 11th lord, Venus can open up new business opportunities and successful contracts with government agencies or corporations. 
CAPRICORN: Nothing much has changed from last week except that the Sun is getting better and Mars weaker getting closer to the Nodes. Mercury, Saturn and Venus are well placed for fortune, success in learning, for reaching goals, recognition as an outstanding team player, help from friends, good inflow of wealth, productive career related travel, healing of the spirit, success in publishing, legal/judiciary, law enforcement. Fulfillment in love and romance. Good returns from investments, and good investments on children's education/future. Mars getting closer to the Nodes can cause problems with siblings and friends by way of interfering in your career/business. 
AQUARIUS:  The only major problem Mercury as the 8th lord can cause in the 10th house especially on MB today and tomorrow is jealousy and backbiting in the work place. As the 5th lord he is great for successful investments, high honours in academic activities/exams, success of children, productive hobbies, sports or entertainment. The Sun is getting better helping partner's fortune. Mars is very nice as the 10th lord in the 9th helping career and learning /education to get to a higher level, benefits thru career related travel. In the 9th house no body gets really mean. The best coming up soon is , of course is when Venus joins Mars Nov 17- Dec 12 in the 10th house Dec 17- Jan 5 for . fortune and glory in career, and for power. Supported by Saturn in the 6th house, they give awesome strength to be extremely competitive.. .
PISCES: Relationships continue to get blessed with Mercury, the 7th lord in the 9th house. Bonding of heart connections . Long journeys including pilgrimages. Fortune in travel. Mars in the 8th house can cause health problems to father and to you too in the company of the Rahu and Ketu and, with the 6th lord Sun, even surgery, if running bad periods in natal charts. Some losses /problems in travel, and conflicts with gurus/teachers. Rahu needs to be watched for harsh speech, and his eagerness to make money by hook or by crook. Saturn can stabilize your both your spiritual expansion and material wealth supported by lagna lord Jupiter in the 7th house

StarScope: Oct 31-Nov 6
By: Gamini Dissanayake 


FORECAST FOR LAGNA/ASCENDANT
ARIES:  Ruler Mars leaves for the 7th house on Tuesday and will remain there until Dec 17. Mercury will go to your 8th house around 4:25 pm today for a stay of 25 days-thru to Nov 24. Like last week , the neecha Sun and Venus can cause trauma in romance and relationships and difficulties with kids, stress to father; and Mercury for possible hurt to younger siblings. Once again [this time Mars instead of Mercury] the 7th house of partnerships shows more difficulties, uncompromising and confronting as Mars tries to do what he knows best: to project force. Being the 8th lord in the 7th, Mars can cause acute health problems, especially in the reproductive system to partner. The Sun needs another 6 weeks to get better [for the kids] and Venus until Jan 29. She can fan passion in the 7th and on the Rahu_ketu-Axis/RKA Nov 17-Dec 12, but she has to pass the 8th house too [Dec 12-Jan 29] to repair the dented relationships. Be more aware when traveling.
TAURUS:  Neecha Sun and Neecha Venus have to be watched , or rather you might want to take more care as the Sun can cause vehicular accidents and damage to house and property, and Venus: miscarriage, cheating in romance and problems with kids, losses in speculation and trying to cut corners. Passion that Mercury generates can be misdirected in an enemy's house. And Mars the 7th lord comes to the 6th house, not at all great for bliss in relationships. Travel houses are loaded and mostly oppressed, so be more conscious. It's even better to cut down travel to the really essential journeys. The Sun will hit Mrityu Bhaga/MB on Nov 2/3. Like I said last week, well being of parents, security of home and property get priority here. Slow down for another couple of weeks, all of us have have just come out of a total lunar eclipse.
GEMINI: Last week we talked about the two biggest "mudalalis" on the planet and mentioned that the debility of Venus is cancelled out by the mutual exchange with Mercury. And Big Guy Mercury goes to the 6th house this afternoon and this time, exchanges 4/6 houses with Mars [who can be meaner as he is aspected by 8th lord Saturn]. For starters, Mars can project aggressive emotions to those around and especially, to the partner/business partner. The major downside is Mars who is capable of some damage to vehicles/accidents and property, especially between Oct 31- and Nov 2 [when Mercury and Mars exchange 4/6 houses] Mars goes to the 5th house on Tuesday [see Aries down] On the RKA and with a neecha Sun to boot, you really got to be max-cool to kids. Less evolved individuals need to be truly conscious of what Mars- on- the- Nodes is fully capable of: addictions, wild passion, deep cravings, aggression and, confusion of the rational mind.
CANCER: Last week, we discussed the ability of a neecha planet sitting in the 3rd house to give Raja Yoga results. In this case, a chance to expand assets, success in learning in the ever-shrinking and warming global village. Today Mercury moves to the the 5th house and exchanges 3/5 houses with Mars thru to Tuesday 7am. Here are two 'enemies' but on the plus side they are all out to make a quick buck or two in business or speculation/investment and willing to take risks. The downside is: wrong choices caused by a stirred up intellect which in turn can lead to erratic behaviour, inability to harmoniously interact with kids, and risks may cause fines/penalties by government. YogaKaraka Mars in 4th thru to Dec 17 energises the work place too, but on the RKA [see Aries down] cool and awareness is what is needed..
LEO:  See Aries down for the neecha scene in the 3rd house, and note the big guy's MB, Nov 2nd sunrise to Nov 3rd noon for possible conflict with siblings, buddies and neighbours, and hurt to upper limbs. On the plus side, siblings and friends can help your success this week as well and also thru mom, real estate, hospitality, food, vehicles, transport, travel, career [Mars-Mercury Parivarthana] Oct 31-Nov 2. Mercury to 4th is nice for successful marketing/persuasion, teaching, workshops, presentations etc and the next exchange of 5/2 houses with Jupiter is even better, that is Nov 24- Jan 26. . Venus and Jupiter10/5 lords will continue help $$$, and Mars/Venus [9/10] lords, the best for fortune and more earnings thru career rolls on to Tuesday sunrise.
VIRGO:   Ruler Mercury is now in the 3rd house and exchanges 1/3 houses with Mars, the bad guy for Virgo and Gemini, thru to Tuesday sunrise... On the plus side they can make you successful in sales, advertising, performing and arts and competitive events, writing, presentations, teaching, communication and thru short journeys. The flip side is impatience, tensions with younger siblings and neighbours, trouble thru writing and, with neck and upper limbs. As Venus moves to the 2nd house and Mercury to the 4th in the 2nd half of Nov your career, learning, joy and $$$ will see another positive and productive period. Moon is great this week for $$$ as she passes 9/10/11 houses. Romance and passion is blessed as Mars moves out to the 2nd house but this can hurt partner's purse or wallet too as Mars sees the 8th house form the 2nd.
LIBRA   To have an oppressed Sun thru to Nov 16 can block opportunities and realistic thinking, and siblings and friends can negatively impact cash flow, we discussed last week.. Mars the 7th lord comes to Lagna on Tuesday [see Aries down] and that improves the bliss in relationships, to a point though. We know that most times Mars or Saturn connect with the nodes, it is a period of difficulties, in this case to project yourself to the outer world with clarity, and the ability to harmoniously interact with the partner and others in the social world. Rahu [who has just caused 2 eclipses] and who could have caused many conflicts, tensions and frustrations in this domain will move out in February and, Mars will be fine when comes to the 3rd house on Jan 29. Venus will be soon [on the 17th] in Lagna and Mercury who has gone to the 2nd house can crank up your earnings.
SCORPIO:  Mercury is now in your Lagna and exchanges 11/1 houses with Mars thru to Tuesday sunrise. And this pair is not really friendly. For Scorpio, Mercury rules 8/11 houses, the plus side being research and investigative and inner work skills, unexpected wealth but the downside can be a strong manifestation of aggression. These are also your 6/8 lords who can make you do things certainly not in your best interest. Watch also for enemy activities, especially on the work place, as your 10th lord Sun is fallen on the Rahu-Ketu-Axis and will be joined by Mars on Tuesday. See Aries down. Watch health, court cases/mediation or conflict resolution could be tricky, and watch out for possible fines too and these may range from parking or traffic violations to damages for causing hurt, even accidentally.
SAGITTARIUS: Mercury as the 10th lord is now in the 12th house. On the plus side he can excel in a spiritually oriented career, healing, caring, correctional, charitable organizations, and import/export business or other activities or projects with foreigners. The flipside is not doing one's job properly and tendency to seek short cuts, to cheat which in turn can lead to fines and penalties. Career related worries can affect sleep and recreation. As the 7th lord he can give long journeys but can challenge the bliss in relationships.. Mars comes to the 11th house, with Mercury can generate foreign earnings. Rahu and Mars on the 5/11 axis do not harmony with kids. Passion and desires need to be consciously managed. Good professional when Mercury comes to Lagna Nov 24-Jan 26.
CAPRICORN: We have an exchange of 9/11 houses, by Mars and Mercury thru to Tuesday sunrise, for reaching goals, recognition as an outstanding team player, help from friends, and good inflow of wealth.. And Venus will soon be in the 10th house [Nov 17-Dec 12] That's perfect timing as the Sun, your 8th lord will be out of the 10th house by then. Venus loves to help, for an outstanding performance, whatever be your career. Those in music, performing or creative arts, hospitality, transport, garments, cosmetics, fashion, real estate, education, auto sales etc will do very well. Mars can be especially helpful in real estate, vehicles/machinery trades, and with government or large corporations, financial management. However, go easy until the 16th. We need the Sun out of the 10th and the RKA. And Mars and Venus on RKA too cannot give full good results unless the Ashtaka Varga and other factors are very strong in your chart.. But they will give their best shot.. See Aries down.
AQUARIUS:  Expect more glory [even Rahu is fine in the 3rd house] when Venus joins Mars Nov 17- Dec 12 and even better [out of the RKA] in the 10th house Dec 17- Jan 5. These, as you know, are your most helpful 9/10 lords for fortune and glory in career, and for power. Supported by Saturn in the 6th house, they give awesome strength to be extremely competitive.. Mercury as the 5th lord is more helpful in the 10th house for fortune and creativity and also for recreational activities and success of children. As the 8th lord gives fine investigative skills and some jealousy in the work place, but these, you will be able to handle with ease. Even Jupiter is capable of causing some big unexpected gain, gifts, commission etc.
PISCES: Relationships are blessed with Mercury, the 7th lord coming to to the 9th house. Wedding bells. And also fortune to partner. Long journeys including pilgrimages. Fortune in travel. Mars and Jupiter, your 9/10 lords together thru to Tuesday morning. When Mars gets to the 8th house and to the Rahu-Ketu-Axis/RKA [see Aries down] father's health can be challenged, and if the problems are chronic , surgery is not ruled out. Mars as the 9th lord can cause some losses /problems in travel, and conflicts with gurus/teachers. Once again, those challenges fall on Jupiter's lap. As the Lagna lord sitting in a Kendra with empathy and compassion, ever willing to help out.
