Notes: In the SAMVA* chart for the USA, transit 6th house ruler, Jupiter, is closely conjunct the 4th house ruler, Venus. This is likely to cause debts, disputes, mental tension, health and legal issues, and civil unrest relative to property, the weather, and domestic peace through the national election, especially August 15 – October 15, when Jupiter and Venus are in close conjunction.
(Cases in point: Evictions and Foreclosure Concerns on the Rise; Wildfires in Colorado and California, Derecho in Iowa; Tropical Storm and Hurricane in the Gulf Coast.)
Additionally, Mars, ruling the 10th house of the countryʻs economy, is under the close influence of Ketu to some extent through Dec. 24th. This is likely to cause issues with property, construction, the workforce, and the military and police. Exercise a great deal of patience and do your best to avoid conflict.

Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
- Sun transits its own sign, Leo, from 10:15 to 17:01°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for leaders, physicians, administrators and governments.
- Moon is waxing and transits Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius. The full Moon is in Aquarius, Sept. 2nd at 12:22 a.m. CDT.
- Mars transits its own sign, Aries, from 02:40 to 03:40°. Mars is under the close 5th aspect of Ketu, to a greater or lesser extent until December 24th. This is not ideal for sports, surgeons, the military, police, property, construction, engineering, executives, et al. There may also be an increased number of strokes, brain tumors or physical injuries.
- Mercury transits out of Leo and into its own sign of Virgo, Sept. 2nd at 1:33 a.m., CDT. Mercury is under the 9th aspect of Jupiter until Sept. 1st. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
- Jupiter transits its own sign of Sagittarius, from 23:42 to 23:25°. Jupiter is in good strength, which should be helpful for law, religion and education.
- Jupiter is in retrograde motion until Sept. 13th. The adverse effects of this transit are only for Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) – and only when Jupiter is within 5 degrees of the rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction.
- Venus transits out of Gemini and into Cancer, August 31st at 3:33 p.m. CDT. Venus is under the 7th aspect of Saturn, Aug. 29 – Sept. 6. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress. Venus is also under the 4th aspect of Mars, Aug. 31 – Sept. 8. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries are likely under stress.
- Saturn transits Capricorn, from 02:03 to 01:44°. Saturn is under the 7th aspect of Venus, August 29 – Sept. 6. Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries are likely under stress.
- Saturn is in retrograde motion, May 11 – Sept. 29. The adverse effects are only for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) – and only when Saturn is within 5 degrees of the rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction.
- Rahu and Ketu transit Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, from 02:39 to 01:50°. Persons, companies and countries with planets in “odd” signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius) between 1 and 4 degrees — or whenever Rahu or Ketu are within 5 degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house), or any planet (by aspect or conjunction) should be careful and patient.
