Monthly Horoscope October 2014

By Kshitij Sharma, September 18, 2014

Health, family, travel/trips and career/business – the horoscope of October 2014 is presented for you based on the moon sign, i.e. janma rashi in your horoscope, based on the Vedic niryana system. Please do not substitute your Sun sign or a western astrology moon sign here. If you do not know your janma rashi, please refer to the kundali application on this page. Sun, Mars, Venus and Mercury all move into different signs right around middle of October and this month will have a distinct first half and second half flavour. This month onwards, I am removing the section for remedies as I am not sure how useful it is for readers. Rather, I am adding few dates based on Moon’s transit over 2nd, 8th and 12th house that indicates anishta. For other dates where caution needs to be exercised, you should go over the weekly panchanga published on the site.

Planetary Positions in October 2014

  • Jupiter remains in Cancer throughout the month.
  • Rahu/Ketu remain in Virgo/Taurus respectively.
  • Mars is in Scorpio at the beginning of the month. It moves from its swakshetra to fiery sign of Sagittarius on 19th Oct.
  • Venus will be debilitated in Virgo for a brief while in October and it will move to swakshetra Libra around 19th of October.
  • Mercury will be in Libra at the beginning of the month. It becomes retrograde on 4th October and moves back to Virgo on 17th. It then becomes direct again on 26th of October, but remains in Virgo till the end of the month.
  • Sun moves to Libra on 18th Oct.
  • Saturn remains in the sign of Libra. It is on its way out of Libra and will move to Scorpio in 1st week of November. Sadhe-sati is on for Virgo, Libra and Scorpio rashis, with Saturn being in 2nd, 1st and 12th house respectively in the janma rashi chart. Sadhe sati will start for Dhanu rashi persons in November. I will be covering this in a separate article by the end of the month. Sadhe-sati is practically over for Kanya Rashi persons, as Saturn is mere 3°30′ away from changing the sign at the beginning of October.
