On Saturday, July 12, 2014, Rahu and Ketu (the North and the South Node) will move from Libra/Aries into Virgo/Pisces. The nodes always travel together in opposite signs, moving backwards through the zodiac, traversing one sign every 1.5 years.

When planets (or in this case, shadow planets) stay in a sign for a long period of time, you will notice changes when they move.

If you are deeply affected by Rahu or Ketu, you will really feel it.

If you…
– Have them in your Ascendent sign natally
– Have them in Libra/Aries or Virgo/Pisces natally
– Are running a period of Rahu or Ketu
– Both
– Bonus points if you have a Kala Sarpa Yoga

Then for you, especially, this marks the end of one 18 month chapter and the start of a new one.

And if you don’t have this configuration, someone around you probably does…

In a sandhi period, when a planet is barely out of one sign and barely into another, it’s hard to know how things are going to shake out. If you know you are very influenced by Rahu and Ketu, you might want to postpone any major decisions until the end of the month, when you’ll have a better idea of how this shift is affecting your life.

Next up, Saturn moves in November, an event that only happens around once every 3 years…
