Planetary Transits for February 20th – February 26th
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
In the SAMVA* horoscope for Ukraine, Mars and Venus, ruling property, domestic peace, the economy and professional life – are transiting the twelfth house of losses – and are closely conjunct natal Rahu, representing sudden calamities. There may be some relief after Feb. 25th. Unfortunately, however, transit Rahu and Ketu – representing an eclipse — closely afflict six of the twelve houses through March.
In the SAMVA* horoscope for Russia, similarly, Mars and Venus, ruling the economy, professional life, property and domestic peace, are transiting the sixth house of debts and disputes. There may also be some relief when they move into Capricorn after Feb. 25th. However, transit Saturn, ruling the unfavorable eighth house, afflicts the houses of relationships, joint ventures, foreign lands, religion, good fortune, reputation, property and domestic peace through mid-March. Moreover, Jupiter, ruling the sixth house of debts, disputes, and enemies, is transiting the eighth house of delays, setbacks, accidents and deathlike experiences through mid-April. This likely indicates that the country is also vulnerable in the event of conflict with Ukraine.
* Systems’Approach to Mundane Vedic Astrology.
In the chart for Donald Trump, transit Saturn, ruling the house of partnerships, joint ventures and foreign lands, is in the house of debts, disputes, health and legal issues through late April. Additionally, transit Ketu afflicts both his natal Venus (ruling women, self-efforts and communications) and Saturn (ruling relationships) through mid-June. These influences are indicative of serious stress.
