Gochara (Transits) for December 1 – January 1, 2010
The following agricultural analogy can be useful in understanding how Jyotish works: “Properly understood, the bhavas [houses] are twelve fields with soil predisposed to growing specialized crops – categories of human experience. But Grahas [planetary bodies] are the farmers that plough the bhavas; the rashis [signs], the mulch that fertilize them.” (Hart Defouw – from Gochara-Phala Vicara Seminar)
Jyotish means best of lights (Jyoti means light), and is based on the fixed stars. This means that the planets and luminaries, etc. are calculated differently from Western Astrology which is based on the seasons. Thus there is a 24* difference in the calculations of the two astrologies.
Please remember that each person will experience the transits according to his/her chart and Dasa (time) periods. In other words, if there is no connection in your chart by lagna (rising sign), Lagna lord, Dasa, or Dasa lord, with the grahas that are being described, it is not likely you will notice much with regard to that transit. If, however, there is a connection, then there is a greater chance that you will notice something. What you will notice, i.e. the quality is of your experience, will depend on who is affecting whom in your chart, and whether your chart is strong or weak in that area.
It is good to know where the Grahas are transiting through out the month, but it does take an expert to determine how that transit will affect a particular chart. If you know your rising sign, for instance, and where Surya (sun) and or Chandra (moon) are in your chart, then you can read the Gochara below, and see what you notice. It sometimes happens that when the Malefics (Graha’s that are known to bring mischief) are transiting sensitive places in our charts that difficult things can happen in ones life, but it isn’t necessarily so. So, the following analysis should be used with circumspection, and it is best to assume that if we are doing our best to support nature (i.e. not doing things that we know to be wrong), that the Laws of Nature in turn will support us.
Graha Positions and Changes for the Month of December:
Grahas (heavenly bodies) are the actors that describe the actions of each one of us, or how well our actions will manifest.
Surya (Sun) – From Vrishika (Scorpio) to Dhanu (Sagittarius) on 16 December.
Chandra (Moon) – Full and exalted in Vrishabha (Taurus) on December 1 and again in Mithuna (Gemini) on the 31st. There is a blue moon this month!
Mangala (Mars) – Stays in Karka (Cancer) through December, is stationary direct on the 20th, goes retrograde for several months on the 21th.
Budha (Mercury) – Goes into Dhanu (Sagittarius) on Dec 1 and goes retrograde in Dhanu on Dec. 27 for three weeks.
Guru (Jupiter) – Out of Makara (Capricorn), its sign of debilitation on 20 December into Kumbha (Aquarius).
Sukra (Venus) – Out of Vrishika (Scorpio) on 21 December, into Dhanu (Sagitarius).
Sani (Saturn) – Sani is still in Kanya (Virgo).
Rahu and Ketu – Have fully established themselves in Dhanu and Mithuna , by which I mean that they have backed up fully 1 degree into those signs, (i.e. are now at 28:59 degrees out of 30) by December 6th.
