Of the 108 Lunar Mansions, the Zodiacal Sign of Aries comprises the four lunar mansions of Beta Arietis ( Aswini ) , 41 Arietis ( Bharani) & the first quarter of Eta Tauri ( Karthika )
For Aries Moon Signs,
Transit Venus in the Eighth can give lucky breaks in the sphere professional.
Transit Sun in the Eighth can create health hazards, unnecessary wanderings and journeys and dissipation of wealth.
Mercury in the Eighth can give happiness from children.
Jupiter is better in the fourth than in the Third and can give relief.
Saturn in the Eighth is negative and Melancholy may mark you for her own.
Avoid calculated risks, as both Jove and Saturn are not benign. Exercise ceaseless vigilance against attacks by the envious. It will be better if you avoid controversies. Calculated risks can be shunned for the time being.
You will be a target of the jealous, as they find this time to be convenient to mount a scathing attack. Be armed with savoir faire and equanimity of mind. Dire vicissitudes are part of life, which is not a bed of roses.
It will be in your interest to shun all new relationships, which consolidating the old.
Hold on to new relationships.
As this is the period of recession, lie low for the time being.
Meditation and prayer can give you Ekagrata, one pointedness of concentration.
Transit of the North Node, Rahu
The North Node's transit of the Sixth is fraught with pleasure, happiness and a sense of fulfillment. He is always welcome in the Sixth. All malefics are. As he transits the Sixth, enjoyments galore is the result. Enemies discover your power, as Rahu in the Sixth is said to be the Nemesis of enemies. He generally destroys their machinations.
Chandrashtama - The Black Hole of Natal Astrology
When Transit Moon transits the 8th from Radical Moon, Chandrashtama is caused ( Janma Rasyashtame Prapthe Chandre Chandrashtamam Smritham ). You should avoid major decisions during this period as Luna's 8th transit is considered malefic ( Anishtan ).
Anything of the flesh will be affected during this phase of Ashtama Indu. Tension grips your mind. You become subject to Melancholia. Mental tension, physical discomfort, delays in undertakings and travel, misplaced documents, sporadic clashes with partner - all these mark your pitiable state. During this 2 1/4 days, you are advised to pray and meditate as to quieten the mind and seek solace in the Eternal. As the luminary representing the Mind, the Moon, traverses through the dreaded Eighth House, mental peace makes a strategic retreat.
