Gandanta Points

Updated: Jul 29, 2023

"Wow. The pressure is getting worser" That is a quote from a viral meme that seems like a theme right now.

Over the last few days, people have expressed their frustration to me more. I get it.

Right now according to Vedic astrology, the planets Venus and Mercury are transiting through a gandanta point from Scorpio into Sagittarius. Gandanta in Sanskrit means ganda-end and anta- knot. This is considered to be a karmic point in a chart or in this case a transit.

Gandanta points are the last degrees of a water sign into the first degrees of a fire sign so the change in opposing elements creates an unsettling feeling. The closer the planet is to the last and beginning degrees of a sign the more intense the experience may be felt.

There are 3 Gandanta points:

  • Cancer into Leo

  • Scorpio into Sagittarius

  • Pisces into Aries

  • This transit is reversed regarding the nodes since they move backward i.e if they are in Aries they will move back into Pisces [from fire into water]

These points are like energetic points that may activate the ending of one thing and/or the beginning of another all for the sake of your evolution. You may or may not have planets in your chart within the degrees of this particular transit however everyone will experience the effects of a gandanta point in life. This is due to why we are here.

Now may not be the time to get into disagreements. Staying calm may be easier said than done but it is worth the effort. You will come out better on the other side if you manage to stay in your power.

To stay present do regular check-ins. Assess your physical, mental, and emotional state, and make adjustments when necessary. Take note of sensations in your body, energy levels, moods, etc to recenter yourself.

As the energy shifts remember to seek higher meaning. And know that everything is already being restored to the Divine right order.
