Planetary Transits for February 6th – February 12th
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
The increasing strength of Jupiter:
Jupiter’s transit in and out of its debilitation sign, Capricorn, for about 20 months is now over. Jupiter, in Aquarius, has regained strength, (and is ruled by a strong Saturn) so we are beginning to see signs of a coming prolonged period of support for law and justice. This may well come to fruition when Jupiter is in its own sign, Pisces, mid-April 2022 to mid-April 2023.
सत्यमेव जयते (Satyameva Jayate): “Truth alone triumphs”.
— Mundaka Upanishad
Note from India, regarding January 22nd to February 16th
“Utter weakness of Mercury and its prolonged affliction by Rahu is a matter of concern. Especially for Aquarians, Leo and Gemini rising signs as Mercury would be additionally weak due to bad placement. Professional concerns for Sagittarians and unexpected expenses and losses for Libra rising natives.”
— K Rajesh Chaudhary
