Planetary Transits for February 4 – February 10

Notes: Transit Jupiter and Rahu remain in close conjunction through early March. This is not ideal worldwide. Expect extremes with law, religion, banking, students, teachers, lawyers, publishers, consultants, husbands and children.  Those with poor health, tumors, colds, coughs, ear problems, diabetes or a weak hip, liver, pancreas or gall bladder are vulnerable.
Additionally, Sun comes under the aspect of both Mars and Saturn, which is likely to cause fireworks, relative to politics, leaders and governments.  Likewise, Mars comes under the aspect of Ketu, which could cause fires, violence, earthquakes, tornadoes, etc. Mercury, too, is under the aspect of Rahu, which can really disturb the economy, stocks, business, brokering, communications and intellectual property, as well as exacerbate health and computer viruses.
It looks like we are in for some challenges this week, so it may be good idea to lay low and get extra rest
