Moon is waning and transits Pisces, Aries, Taurus and into Gemini.
Mars transits Leo, from 07:02 to 11:29°. Mars is closely conjunct Mercury until Sept. 21st. Watch for fire, military, police and property matters communications. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should be careful and patient as the mooltrikona sign for Mercury, Virgo, falls in their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively, which renders Mercury as a functional malefic planet.

Saturn comes out of retrograde motion on Aug. 25th at 6:13 a.m. CDT.
Saturn remains in Scorpio until October 26th. Aries, Gemini, and Sagittarius rising sign persons should be careful and patient as Saturn is in their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively, which undermines the strength of Saturn.
Saturn is under the influence of the 5th aspect of Rahu until Nov. 6 and is weak in degrees until Dec. 12th. This is not helpful for the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons. Watch for issues relative to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, as well as for immigration, agriculture, manufacturing, health care, the environment, and the oil, gas, and minerals industries.

In the SAMVA chart/horoscope* for the USA, Saturn’s transit causes serious issues relative to debts, setbacks, accidents, health and legal issues and even death-like experiences through October.
