Nine Days of the Divine Mother (Saran Navaratri) September 19 – 29, 2009
“Nava-ratri” literally means “nine nights.” This festival is observed twice a year, once in the spring (Vasanta Navaratri) and again in the fall (Saran Navaratri). A period of introspection and purification, Navaratri is traditionally an auspicious time for starting new ventures.
Navaratri is divided into sets of three days to adore different aspects of the supreme goddess. On the first three days, the Mother is invoked as the powerful force called Durga in order to destroy all our impurities, vices and defects. The next three days, the Mother is adored as Goddess Lakshmi. She is considered to have the power of bestowing on her devotees inexhaustible wealth, both spiritual and material. The final set of three days is spent in worshipping the mother as the goddess of wisdom, Saraswati. In order to have all-round success in life, we need the blessings of all three aspects of the Divine Mother – hence, the worship for nine nights.
During Navaratri, there is said to be a battle that occurred between good (positivity) and evil (negativity) as represented by the Goddess Chaamundeshwari and the asura (demon), Mahishaasura. The battle lasted 9 days and 9 nights. Finally, on the tenth day, Goddess Chaamundeshwari killed Mahishaasura. This day is known as Vijayadasami, meaning the 10th day of victory.
It is said that worshipping Divine Mother during Navaratri will bestow wealth, auspiciousness, prosperity, knowledge, and other potent powers to cross every hurdle of life.
Many yagyas will be performed during this very auspicious festival. They will range from personal yagyas for enlightenment and self realization to yagyas for creating business success, prosperity and wealth.

September 2009 Vedic Astrology Gochara (Transits)
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)
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 you might notice more. 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 (Planetary) Changes for September:
SuryaSurya (Sun) – Surya conjoined (yuti) Sani in the Rashi Simha (lord is Surya) brings obstacles to a very strong or outstanding government. If government work is finished before Surya goes into Kanya on September 16, probably the government will win out. Otherwise, it may be months before it is successful. Because debilitated Guru and Rahu transit 6th from Surya (worries, enemies, healing), success looks problematic. There is a window between the 9th of September and the 16th where obstacles should become less.
ChandraChandra (Moon) – Full on the 3rd so of course, there is the drishti from Surya. Also, however, there is the drishti from Sani in Simha, which tends to be hard on the public as well as government – strong feelings of oppression due to obstacles and desires manifesting slowly. This could come true in the public sector as well as individually and it doesn’t necessarily continue all month, though there could be a continued feeling of dissatisfaction in general for most of the month.
MangalaMangala (Mars) – Mangala stays in Mithuna for the entire month, giving energy to the intellect, especially until the 24th of September. This could be good for technological advances.
BudhaBudha (Mercury) – For most of the month, Budha is in Kanya, where it is joined by Sani on the 9th, and Surya on the 16th. It receives a drishti (aspect) from Mangala until the 24th when he (Budha) retrogrades back into Simha. As there is also drishti to Kanya from Rahu as well, because Budha is the intellect, discrimination, and communication, there will be a range of difficulties to these areas for the entire month. It is especially difficult after the 9th of September because then Rahu, Mangala, and Sani will all be influencing this most changeable of all the grahas. Expect to see great fluctuations in reasoning and ability to communicate and discriminate over the month both in the public sector and between individuals.
GuruGuru (Jupiter) – Retrograding and debilitated in Makara (Capricorn) Yuti (conjunct) Rahu, and exchanging Drishtis (aspects) from Sukra in Karka until 15 September; Guru also receives a drishti from Mangala in Mithuna. Wisdom and judgment are impaired, especially for those with Makara lagna. The outcome could be a demonstration of great frustration because of unfulfilled desires, and strong attachments to useless concepts.
SukraSukra (Venus) – In Karka until 15 September, receiving Drishti from debilitated retrograde Guru, and on the Rahu/ Ketu Axis. This combination isn’t great for all that Sukra represents, i.e. partnership, desires, the arts, etc. This combination does nothing to temper unbridled desires, because Guru doesn’t have enough quality to bring good judgment, and Rahu in any association with Sukra promotes blind attachments.
SaniSani (Saturn) – After two and a half years in Simha, Sani has finally come to move into the next rashi, Kanya (Virgo), a place he likes much better. As Sani feels inimical to Surya (lord of Simha) and is friendly with Budha (lord of Kanya) this new rashi should, in general, be easier. So, this will bring relief to many, but it still may cause some to quake in their boots. In the Rashi part of this article, we will discuss the impact of Sani’s move on the different lagnas.
Rahu and KetuRahu and KetuRahu and Ketu (the north and south nodes of Chandra) – They are still doing their mischief in the 10th (Rahu) and 4th Rashis. Their effects on the two best benefics (grahas that bring sweet things – Sukra and Guru) are often dampening, and obstructive. Attachments and confusion, sudden surprising events, and the inability to move in any direction at all are potentially what these grahas could add.
