  5. Sun Transit in Virgo:...

Our Sun is a star with a tremendous amount of light and intelligence. Here on the earth plane, our world revolves around the Sun – literally. Without the Sun there could be no life on earth. In Vedic Astrology, Sun symbolizes your soul, activity, the king, and your father.

Each month, the Sun transits a different zodiac sign and lights it up. From September 17th through October 17th, Sun will be transiting through Virgo.

Virgo is the most practical and detail-oriented of the signs. It is ruled by Mercury, a planet of intellect, communication, business, and wealth. In Sanskrit, Virgo is called Kanya. Virgo is symbolized by a virgin in a boat with grains in one hand and a light in the other. The virgin signifies purity and love of the Goddess energy. Grains are the staff of life, which show us that Virgo energy includes being in touch with practical things like how to survive. Light signifies higher consciousness.

Virgo has to do with being detail oriented, doing service, health, purification, managing the details, having a drive for perfection, and impeccability. Perfection through purification. Sun in Virgo is going to be illuminating the details in life. Virgo reminds us, though, that deep within matter is pure Divine energy. Virgo is also associated with Goddess energy, including siddhi (supernatural) powers.

Virgo is the natural 6th house of the zodiac. It may be a different house (1-12) for you personally, depending on your own birth chart. But for the world in general, Virgo is the natural 6th house of the zodiac. 6th house energy may include material problems such as disease, enemies, debt, and litigation.

But don’t worry – the 6th house is actually considered one of the Sun’s more favorable transits. And you can improve 6th house issues by doing remedies. A good remedy is to invoke Muruga and his weapon the vel – because he’s a specialist in destroying debt, disease, enemies, and legal problems. The other remedy is to do selfless service – then you may experience healing powers and other spiritual powers.

With the Sun in the natural 6th house, it will be a good time to serve and protect others. Sun will be radiating energy to deal with conflicts, lawsuits, enemies, reduce/eliminate debts, and take action to improve your health.

SUN ENTERS VIRGO: Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 2:45 a.m. EDT

Ganesha10• This day is also the elephant-headed Ganesha’s Birthday, a special power day when he can remove stubborn obstacles in your life. Ganesha has an elephant head, a potbelly, and rides on a mouse. He is a specialist in seeing the unseen obstacles and destroying them. He is super-intelligent and super-fast. According to Astroved : “For Ganesha, all circumstances of life are but fleeting moments of multiple possibilities.” This means with Ganesha we are never stuck!


Dr. Pillai has some fascinating YouTube videos on Ganesha that you may want to check out. They are easy to find by doing a search on YouTube for “Pillai Center Ganesha”. In one video Dr. Pillai calls Ganesha an angel of success. 

Pray to Ganesha to remove your stickiest obstacles. Smash a coconut or cut a lime as you chant Om Gum Ganapataye Namaha.

On this same day, Mercury goes retrograde. Mercury is the owner of Virgo. And Mercury is exalted in Virgo, which means extra powerful. Going retrograde will make him extra, extra powerful. Mercury is associated with intelligence, communication, technology, wealth, analyzing, discriminating, business, and even astrology. Pay attention to the details, double check your work, and be careful with communication and technology. Om Budhaya Namaha.


Rahu is also transiting Virgo. Rahu is a shadow planet of innovative thinking and new technologies. Rahu in Virgo can bring in a deeply healing energy – often through unconventional or new modalities. Rahu is also associated with unusual things, foreigners, toxicity, obsession, addiction, and out of the ordinary experience. He can help us to make friends with new technologies. Om Rahave Namaha.

ANCESTORS’ FORTNIGHT: Mahalaya is a two-week period (September 28 – October 12th) when your ancestors all come to the earth plane and stay with you.

It might be a fun experience, but there might also be some conflicts, stress, and strain with certain relatives. Now consider that all us have thousands of ancestors, many of whom may have led difficult lives of suffering. These two weeks are very important time to make daily tarpanam offerings to your ancestors and receive blessings from them. When your ancestors cross into the light and become happy, you will be happy, successful, and peaceful too! Learn more.
