2-7 Dec 2022:  Planet of Communication and Love Traverse a Difficult Zone (Gandanta)

‘Gandanta’ is a Sanskrit word formed from the words,  Gand’ means a ‘Knot‘ and ‘Anta’ means the ‘End‘.  ‘Gandanta’ means ‘the knot at the end’.  A well-tied knot is that it is very difficult to unravel.  The more you try to untie the knot, the tighter it becomes.  


It is the part of the zodiac where the water element changes into the fire element. There are three places where these points happen: where Pisces and Aries meet, where Cancer and Leo meet, and where Scorpio and Sagittarius meet.


‘Gandanta’ represents a knot within ourselves, a deep issue, which we are trying to reconcile with.   In simple words, Gandanta is a knot, a deep problem, that we are trying to solve within ourselves. As a matter of fact, this Gandanta is a Karmic knot that does not come from just one of our past lives.  Instead, it is a complex Emotional and Karmic knot that was made because the person was not able to clear the Karma connected to it.  Because of this, it is now a knot that needs to be untied because the soul wants to be free.  There comes a point in everyone’s life that they must undergo a tough period in order to mentally and spiritually prepare for the next stage of their journey. Only after making peace with the present can you move forwards. If you want to make progress into the future, you must accept the present.

When planets are put in these positions, they have to deal with uncertainty as they try to figure out how to get to the next level.  It’s like a strong spiritual bubble that traps energies. Since this is the case, when planets move through these gandanta parts of the zodiac, powerful things can happen. The planets grab and hold on to the karmas of the sign and show how we can get stuck instead of moving forwards. We need to know what role this is playing in our evolution in order to let go, pop the bubble, or untie the knot so we can move on with our lives. These problems show up in a person’s life through personal relationships, traumatic events, or inner conflicts.  The positioning of planets in the Gandanta is particularly powerful as this indicates a very special purpose for this birth. There can be many difficulties to be faced, adjustments to be made in life as we move towards one level of spiritual growth into the second level. This can be a very good position as well as it can create balance as you learn to come to terms with the reality of today.  In fact Gandanta point is about “Realization” in this life about an issue that will let you progress towards moksha quicker.

Now,  between 2 and 7 Dec 2022,  Mercury,  Venus and Sun are about to traverse through the Gandanta point starting at Scorpio.   What can Mercury and Venus offer us while revering this Gandanta  that is between 29°12 Scorpio to 0°48 Sagittarius


2-3  Dec 2022:  Watch out – Impulsive Communication may lead to Misunderstandings

Mercury traverses through Gandanta (29°12 Scorpio to 0°48 Sagittarius).  Mercury  (the planet of communication, accounts, intellect, rational thinking, data & information, speech & writing, news & the media)  passes through the Gandanta (from Scorpio to Sagittarius), from Water sign to Fire sign; and at the same time it is getting 8thaspect from Mars ( Action & results, aggression & combat, brothers & comrades, muscles & machines, forceful). Hence Mercury  and its signification dwindles due to and being traversing from Water to Fire sign, creating more smoke before burning due to Mars significations as just said.  It would become challenging for all of us to balance the Mercury signification for next 2 days.  

5-7 Dec 2022:  Watch out – Love goes from Emotions to Intense Drama due to mixed messages of Love and Romance

Venus traverses through  Gandanta (29°12 Scorpio to 0°48 Sagittarius). Venus (The  planet of  Art & Beauty, Love & Romance, Money & finance, Guidance & counsel, Harmony & Agreement, Pleasures, Sex & Luxuries) traverses through Gandanta (29°12 Scorpio  to   0°48 Sagittarius).  Venus gets the similar sort of aspects from Mars as Mercury.    Venus would go through further challenges at end of December 2022 due to different aspects

Here are some Points to Ponder upon between 2-7 Dec 2022 

  1. Maximum churning of the inner emotions may take place
