Planetary Transits for December 26 – January 1

Notes: Jupiter transits Sagittarius from Nov. 2019 until Nov. 2020 (except when it is in Capricorn for April, May and June). The optimal times for Jupiter significations (law, religion, morality, justice, banking, education, consulting and good fortune), are: January 21 – March 10; and July 16 – November 2. In the horoscope for the U.S., the difficult transits of the past 9 months are now separating; some relief may be seen. The favorable Mercury sub period begins on Jan. 31st, which should be helpful for 10 months — and through the 2020 national elections.
