(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Notes: Mercury and Venus are closely conjunct until December 9th. Six of the twelve rising signs, (Aries, Taurus, Libra, Scorpio, Aquarius and Pisces), persons, companies and countries, (including India), may want to be careful and patient.
Rahu and Ketu complete their prolonged (11-week) stationary positions in the 19-degree range on December 7th. Continue to be careful, however, until they increase their motion, around December 24th.
Transits for this Week:
Sun transits Scorpio, from 17:52 to 24:58°. This should be favorable for leaders, presidents, surgeons, administrators and government officials. Sun is under the seventh aspect of Mars until December 10th. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries (including India) should be careful and patient.
Moon is waxing/waning and transits Pisces, Aries, Taurus, and Gemini. The full Moon is in its exaltation sign, Taurus, December 7th at 10:08 p.m., CST.
Mars transits Taurus, from 23:27 to 20:46°. This should be favorable for the police, military, athletes, surgeons, executives, engineers, and property matters. Mars remains in Taurus until March 13th. Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius rising sign persons, companies and countries may want to be patient with income and friendships; partnerships and joint ventures; and children and investments, respectively.
Mercury transits Sagittarius, from 01:48 to 12:11°. This should be favorable for stocks, business, technology and communications. Mercury is closely conjunct Venus until December 9th. (Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons should be careful and patient.)
Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces, from 04:48 to 05:08°. This should be favorable for law and justice – and sheds light on the illicit activities of deceptive and manipulative persons and organizations (e.g., those involved in the Jan. 6th insurrection and other illegal or fraudulent practices.) Note the recent legal rulings against former president, Donald Trump.
Venus transits out of Scorpio, and into Sagittarius, December 5th at 6:27 a.m., CST. Venus is in weak degrees until December 9th. Be patient with women, luxuries, weather, transportation, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts. Venus is also closely conjunct Mercury until December 9th. (Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons should be careful and patient.)
Saturn transits Capricorn, from 25:53 to 26:23°. This should be helpful for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons, along with manufacturing, agriculture, sustainable living, and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 19:03 to 18:39°. Rahu and Ketu are in the 19-degree range from September 23rd until December 7th. The prolonged (11-week) movement of Rahu and Ketu is generally not ideal — worldwide. Additionally, people, companies, and countries with rising signs between 17 and 21 degrees, or with planets between 17 and 21 degrees in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius, should be especially careful and patient.
