Vedic Astrology: 9/22 – Rahu/Ketu Transit
The new moon of Sept 17 (4:00 am PT) is on the edge of a new era. With 3 planets stationed in their home signs, and powerfully-minded Mercury joined this new moon, inspiring new ideas can come through now.
Though it may feel like you’re falling off the edge, stay open to new possibilities and positive change now, a new beginning is around the corner.
The new moon is in the area of the sky called Uttara Phalguni, the “star of solidarity.” A Vedic deity of love, unity and commitment, Aryama, reigns here. This new moon can expose heart-felt feelings and catalyze true connectivity, friendship and love.

The new moon is also at the mid-point between Rahu and Ketu, the north and south nodes which represent the head and tail of the eclipse snake. This unruly eclipse snake is on the verge of changing signs now. On the equinox, Sept 22/23, Rahu and Ketu will enter the signs of Taurus and Scorpio, where their transformative powers are said to be exalted.
For the next 18 months (until April 2022) earthly Taurus and impassioned Scorpio will be in the path of the eclipses, an influence that foreshadows important socio-political and economic shifts for the world. How this affects you personally depends on how Rahu and Ketu transit your birth chart.
The day leading up to this new moon (Sept 16) is the final day of Pitru paksha, the sacred dark moon of the ancestors. It’s said that the spirit realm—the pitr loka—is close to earth now. If you’re facing challenging situations or having trouble making decisions now, take a moment to quiet your mind and connect to the inner world. There’s much healing and guidance that can come through this dark moon.
