Rahu in Gandanta + quincunx to Mars

Updated: Oct 10, 2023

Rahu is in the fiery Aries gandanta degrees from August 10 to November 28, which is a portion of the zodiac that is highly karmic, overwhelming, and intense. In Aries, it produces anger, violence, fires, explosions, wars, attacks, etc. Things are out of hand in the world, as we are seeing with the devastating fires in Hawaii and Canada leaving thousands of people without a home, not to mention all the people and animals who have died.

Rahu remains in Ashwini untill the end of its transit in Aries (November 28). Ashwini is the star of transport, and relates to medical emergencies/rescues and healing. The Ashwin twins, or the twin horsemen, are the doctors of the nakshatras or the “physicians of the gods” who quickly run to the rescue of those in need, sending their healing powers down to earth. This is the theme until the end of November. (Remember that Ashwini and Aries deals with he military and war).

On August 21, Mars makes a quincunx (6/8 aspect) to Rah at 2 degrees. This unfortunately adds fuel to the fire and to the possible attacks or occurrences in the world. The 6th house is accidents and open enemies, the 8th house is crisis, death, major transformations & sudden reversals.

With Uranus in Aries about to go Retrograde on August 28, things will get even more unpredictable, however, this will produce important awakenings and new insights around the world.

Another important factor is the square from Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn to Rahu and Aries, this adds important elements to the picture, such as manipulation and control. This tells me that what is going on in the world right now is not organic, but rather man made.

Pluto is in Uttara Ashadha, called “the universal star”, the god-like power nakshatra, which deals with invincibility, humanitarian goals and fairness to all, however Pluto is not a very fair planet. It has a few effects in the sign of Capricorn, on one side it gives humanity the opportunity to research the true motives of the governments, which are no longer hidden for the simple fact that Pluto is in the 10th house of the natural zodiac (whatever planet is placed here is no longer secret, but rather put on display for all to notice).The other effect is that the governments are in alliance with higher groups of individuals who desire to act like God, to control and manipulate nature, the weather, and humanity. Control and manipulation are important qualities of Pluto in Capricorn for the next 20 years.

Also on August 21, the same day that Mars makes a quincunx to Rahu, The Sun will quincunx Pluto at 4 degrees! This concerns the governments once again, and especially the world leaders or the presidents, something big will happen here relating to deaths, accidents, major transformation. Uttara Ashadha is ruled by the Sun, and the Sun in Leo in Magha ruled by Ketu, a loss may happen here concerning leaders.

So much is brewing and going on in the world. Let’s send our prayers and positive healing energies to all those in need right now.
