Rahu and Ketu, the two shadow planets, have changed signs. This is called peyarchi in Sanskrit. While the planets are weak at this degree, this transit, this changing of signs will have both personal and mundane effects – on individuals and on countries.
There are two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. Seasons are opposite on either side of the Equator, so the equinox in September is also known as the autumnal (fall) equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, and is considered the first day of Fall. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is known as the Vernal (spring) equinox and marks the first day of spring.
