Soul Lessons of the 12 Moon Signs
Rahu and Ketu, two planetary bodies that remain mysterious and an enigma through time. They are known as the nodes of the moons or shadows of the moon. The moon is the main repository of our karmas through our tendencies, emotions and mental state. Rahu represents current karma and Ketu past karma, these two shadows the moon bring energies of our tendencies based on the past and we acting out in the present based on our tendencies. One that is responsible for sudden changes through eclipses, their transits and periods. On 23rd March 2019, we shall see these two bodies change signs. They currently transit Cancer-Capricorn. Come March, Rahu shall move to Gemini and Ketu to Sagittarius and stay there for another one and a half years. This shall bring major energy change for one and all as these two bodies impact our karmic lessons.
Rahu in Gemini
Ruling planets of signs gets activated when any planets transit into them. Likewise, when Rahu moves in Gemini, Mercury gets activated and also the sign of Virgo as Mercury rules both these signs. At the time of this transit Mercury shall be retrograde as well. In significance, Gemini is the natural third zodiac which governs intellect, communications, efforts, ambitions, courage and siblings. Which means these areas in general shall get activated. As Mercury shall be retrograde during the transition change, it means reflection and inner review of our sense of communications, intellect and our ambitions. Gemini is also a sign which is Kama or desires to be fulfilled. With Rahu there, it can bring a magnification of our desires or it can veil us in illusion with regards to our communications, intellect and ambitions. This period shall possibly see people more aggressive with their communications or being too eager to the point of being blunt. This may result in conflicts. Our thoughts may also run here and there. Interestingly, on a good side, it brings creative ideas and technology further being enhanced in terms of communications. It is important to reflect when we are being too ambitious, speaking too much or thinking too much for our own good. As with Rahu, excess leads to loss. We need to reflect on what is needed and real and not get carried away.
Ketu in Sagittarius
Ketu shall move into the opposite sign of Sagittarius which is the natural ninth sign signifying higher philosophies, religion, beliefs, law, foreign travels and teachers in our lives. Sagittarius also being ruled by Jupiter, Jupiter shall be activated as well as the other sign Jupiter rules is Pisces. In this sign, another heavy weight planet, Saturn is also currently transiting. These two planets shall start to conjunct from March with very close conjunction between May and July this year. This shall bring significant results and changes. As Ketu is about past karmas, spiritual and liberating body and Saturn is karmic dispenser, limitations, reality, focus, humility and diligence, when these two combine together, there shall be major transformation. As Sagittarius rules higher philosophy, wisdom, religion and beliefs, during these conjunctions, we shall be in the process of facing certain hard truths of ourselves, our beliefs, our conduct and we will need to let go to liberate ourselves. What we have to restart at this time shall be new but good for us in the long run. Jupiter in Scorpio validates as it signifies going deep and facing the deep truth of ourselves and issues.
Saturn-Ketu Conjunction 2019
Major play comes in June 2019 when Saturn Ketu Conjunction in Sagittarius meets Rahu conjunct Mars in Gemini. This the period when major changes happen. As Saturn transits the nakshatra of Purvaashada, it is the star of “invincibility” which means that whatever situation or certain crisis we face, we can slowly build that back up again as Saturn gives us the patience and endurance to do so. It also signifies our determination to live by our values and authenticity. We shall see more people being sure of their values and not allowing themselves to be victims.
In this period, Gemini a sign of desire and Sagittarius a sign of Dharma or Right conduct shall be polarized. If we do not reflect on the issues of Rahu in Gemini and go in excess of how we communicate, think and be ambitious with the point of no ethics, then Saturn Ketu conjunction in Sagittarius shall create the energies for us to realize what we are doing and we shall be compelled to change. This may result in many leaders in organizations or countries falling due to misconduct and revelations of their misconduct as Sagittarius also rules organized religions and to some extent authority figures as well. That saying, it is a very positive change. If we live in our authenticity, we shall find the time very enlightening and undergoing further growth. For others, it means a new set of beliefs but one that is of our higher good.
It is always important to reflect within the desires we have. Rahu brings it in order for us to learn what is permanent and what is not permanent.

Furthermore, the strength of your natal placements of Saturn, Ketu, Rahu and Jupiter plays a part as well as all these shall be activated.
