Note: In the *SAMVA chart for USA, transit Jupiter, (ruling the 6th house of debts and disputes, along with health, legal and financial issues) is weak in degrees – and in its debilitation sign, Capricorn, until June 29.
This is not ideal for the above significations — and general significations — of Jupiter.
Additionally, transit Mercury, ruling viruses and the respiratory canal, along with the 3rd house of communications and entrepreneurial ventures, is under the influence of the unfavorable 6th house ruler, Jupiter, until April 15th.
This is about the time when USA may start to see some relief with the COVID-19 situation.

Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
- Sun transits out of Pisces and into its exaltation sign, Aries, on April 13th at 9:53 a.m. CDT. Sun, however, is weak in degrees until April 18th. Leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and governments should get extra rest.
- Moon is waning and transits Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius and into Capricorn. Moon, in Scorpio, is debilitated, April 10 – 12. Watch your emotional state and be careful around volatile persons.
- Mars transits its exaltation sign, Capricorn, from 12:23 to 17:15°. This should be favorable for the military, police, athletes, executives, engineers and property matters.
- Mercury transits its debilitation sign, Pisces, from 02:45 to 14:07°. Mercury is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn until April 15th. Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
- Jupiter transits its debilitation sign, Capricorn, (where it remains until June 29th) from 01:11 to 01:51°. This undermines the strength of Jupiter and its significations, such as law, banking, religion, education, husbands, children, teachers, advisors and consultants.
- Venus transits its own sign, Taurus, from 10:38 to 16:11°. This should be favorable for women, romance, medicine, finance, entertainment and the fine, healing, and performing arts.
- Saturn transits Capricorn, from 07:00 to 07:19°. Saturn is in good strength and outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be an improvement for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, agriculture, and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
- Rahu and Ketu transit Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, from 07:44 to 07:28°. This represents stress for persons, companies and countries with planets in “odd” signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius) between 5 and 9 degrees – or for anyone — whenever Rahu or Ketu are within 5 degrees of his or her rising sign degree (in any house), or any planet (by aspect or conjunction).
