Note Sun is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn until March 3rd.
For USA this, along with the stationary position of Rahu and Ketu until March 19th, brings serious issues relative to the country’s wealth, status and family life. There may also be heart issues for leaders and administrators.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Aquarius, from 09:27 to 16:29°. Sun is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn until March 3rd. Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient. (For USA, this brings serious issues relative to the status and family life of the country.)
Moon is waxing and transits Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and into Leo.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 22:07 to 26:17°. Mars is under the 5th aspect of Rahu until Feb. 26th. This is not ideal for the military, police, athletes, firefighters, executives and property matters. War, fires, volcanoes, earthquakes and weather issues are also possible.
Last week’s prediction: …”volcanoes…are also possible”. (Mount Sinabung Eruption Annihilates Peak of Indonesian Mountain.)
Mercury transits Aquarius, from 13:24 to 26:37°. Mercury is okay for a few days, but then comes under the 4th aspect of Mars and close conjunction of Venus. More on this next week.
Jupiter transits Libra, from 28:46 to 29.00°. Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees until May 3rd. This may cause issues with law, banking, religion, children, husbands, and education.
Jupiter represents law, religion, morality and education. Libra is ruled by Venus, representing women, sexuality, and the scales of justice. This combination supports the revelations and movements regarding the sexual harassment of women. This slow-moving 13-month transit of Jupiter in Libra should provide a long-lived transformation.
Jupiter remains in Libra until October 11, 2018. Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising signs should be careful and patient as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 8th, and 12th(inauspicious) houses, respectively, which undermines the strength of Jupiter.
Venus transits Aquarius, from 20:00 to 28:44°. Venus is under the 4th aspect of Mars, Feb. 18 – March 3. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Venus also comes under the 5th aspect of Jupiter in a few days. More on this next week.
Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 12:41 to 13:13°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak due to the weakness of its dispositor, Jupiter, until May 3rd. This may cause issues with working-class persons, the elderly, and immigration – as well as for agriculture, manufacturing, and the oil, gas, and minerals industries.
Saturn remains in Sagittarius until Jan. 2020. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient as Saturn is transiting their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Rahu and Ketu transit Cancer and Capricorn, respectively, from 20:41 to 20:44°. Rahu and Ketu remain in the 20-degree range until March 19th. This stationary position of Rahu and Ketu is generally NOT favorable worldwide and causes calamities. Those persons with 19 to 21° rising signs or with any planet(s) in the 19 to 21°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces — including the USA) should be especially careful and patient.
Note: In the SAMVA* chart for USA, (based on the Perpetual Union) transit Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 20-degree range — and afflict 6 of the 12 houses. This suggests serious issues through March. * Systems’ Approach to Mundane Astrology.
