Planetary Transits for April 24th – April 30th
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Note: Jupiter in its own sign, Pisces, is moving away from the unfavorable fifth aspect of Ketu. Although Jupiter is still within four degrees of Ketu, and remains in infant state degrees through April, this is still an important improvement.
Moreover, Jupiter will be strong in degrees in Pisces, May 2022 through March 2023. This should be favorable worldwide, especially for law, justice and other Jupiter significations, such as religion, morality, education, husbands, children and divine grace.
Jupiter, which is a functional malefic planet for Ukraine, will move away from the country’s “Most Effective Point” (rising sign degree) by May 17th, where it has been afflicting four houses since April 1st. This may well start to bring some relief into the situation.
(Rahu and Ketu will continue to cause issues in six of the twelve houses through June, but to a lesser extent than they were from mid-January through March.)
Last Week’s Predictions: “Be vigilant with stocks…There may also be an increase of Covid cases.” (Dow falls nearly 1,000 points; Beijing races to contain ‘urgent and grim’ Covid outbreak.)
Transits for this Week:
Sun transits its exaltation sign, Aries, from 09:50 to 16:36°. This connects the government with the military, police, property, executives, athletes, executives and executioners. Sun is outside the orb of other planets. This should be favorable for leaders, presidents, physicians, and administrators.
Moon is waning and transits Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and into Aries. The new Moon is in Aries, April 30th.
Mars transits Aquarius, from 12:42 to 17:57°. Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for the military, police, athletes, executives and property matters.
Mercury transits out of Aries and into Taurus, April 24th. Mercury begins to move away from its close conjunction with Rahu. Continue to be patient with stocks, business, finance, technology, and communications. (Back up your computer and update your anti-virus software. There may also be an increase of Covid cases.)
Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces, from 02:22 to 03:51°. Jupiter is closely conjunct Venus through May 5th. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including India) should be careful and patient.
Venus transits out of Aquarius and into its exaltation sign, Pisces, April 27th. Venus is closely conjunct Jupiter through May 5th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA, Russia and Ukraine) should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits out of its own sign, Capricorn, and into its moolatrikona sign of Aquarius, on the evening of April 28th. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees, which may not completely support the masses, the elderly and working-class persons, along with manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 28:29 to 28:18°. Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 28° range until June 16th. This is NOT ideal worldwide. People, companies, and countries with planets or a rising sign between 0 and 1 degrees in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces) or between 26 and 30 degrees in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius), should be careful and patient.
