By rasi (moon sign), I am not referring to your sun sign, i.e. sun's position in your natal chart. Sun remains in the same sign for nearly 30 days. For example people born between 15.01.2014 to 12.02.2014 belong to the sun sign Capricorn. (makara rasi). This method is followed in Kerala, in some parts of Tamil Nadu and Malabar as well as in portions of North East India. According to Western astrology which does not consider precession of equinox (ayanamsha) people born between 22.12.2013 to 20.01.2014 belong to sun sign Capricorn. In Hindu astrology the transit effects are considered from the sign occupied by moon (nirayana position) at the time of birth, called rasi.
On this page, the predictions are interpreted based on the cannons of Hindu astrology. I would not say, Vedic astrology as in times of the vedas, ancient being Rigveda, astrology was used as calendar to perform specific religious duties and was not used for elections or predictive purposes. However, we can find references to muhurta and predictive nature of astrology in grahya sutras and puranas. English notations are used as the site has numerous readers in Latin America and Western Europe.
At the start of the month, ravi is in kataka and enters his own sign, simha on 18th August. Kuja neecha in kataka rasi till 8th of August and from 9th he transits in simha rasi. Kuja is combust during the entire month of shraavana. - Budha transits mithuna for the first two days of the month and assumes direct motion from 3rd. Budha is in kataka rasi from 3rd to 26 the of August. Budha enters simha from 27th. Budha is combust from 21st August. Guru, retrograde in vrischika and passes into direct motion from 12th. Shukra in kataka rasi at the beginning of the month an moves into simha from 17th. For the entire month of shraavana and beyond (till 20th September) he is combust. Shani Retrograde and ketu progress in dhanur rasi while rahu is in mithuna.
You have observed that there are no muhurta for marriage and such auspicious events during this month. There were no muhurtas during previous month of aashadha. Well, it was in Andhra, Telangana, Karnataka and Maharastra where chandramana calendar is followed. There is no aashadha maasa in Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, large parts of North India and Odisha. It was mithuna and katka maasas! It is only convention in certain parts of India not to prefer aashadha maasa but not related to astrology. Similarly, rahu kala prevails in South while choudadhiya is prevalent in North.
There are no muhurtas in shraavana maasa as shukra is near to ravi known as astngatya and moudhya. It is established fact that when the planets go near to ravi (they are near in longitude but not attitude or declination at the same time), they get exited and behave strangely. Moudhya means foolishness. Not all these are very simple, budha when combust produces high IQ. Moudhya is observed only for guru and shukra while other planets also can be in this state. Kuja is also combust during shraavana but unfortunately, he does not get any disqualification. The effects of combustion depends on the role of the planet in the natal chart as well as the lordship and placement of ravi in the chart. There can not be any generalization.
Lunation takes place in 12th, there is secrecy in many areas of governance - something for the good of the nation is boiling in the pot, chandra is in own sign. Financial growth is not seen there will be some wrong investments policies. Some friction with opposition parties and neighbors is possible. Government policies on imposing nationalism, patriotism or whatever the others call as patronization will hit a stumbling block. Judiciary and the government are at loggerheads. Some sections of the society complain of oppression by the majority population, retrograde shani is afflicted by ketu.
