Planetary Transits For January 25th-31st
Dear lovely PlanetarySara newsletter subscribers,
Happy 2018! I hope this year brings you so much adventure, love, and success.
It’s with great pleasure that I announce I have moved to the wonderful city of Sarasota, Florida. I am getting settled into my new apartment and once I get my home office set up I will be once again offering all my services.

Please also note that there has been a slight increase in my prices, but as always I do offer sliding scale options. I want this knowledge to be available to all!
Note 1: There is a Total Lunar Eclipse on Jan. 31st at 7:29 a.m. CST during a full (Blue) Moon. The eclipse will be visible in U.S., Europe, Russia, Asia, and Australia. According to some Vedic astrologers, eclipses are not favorable and should not be viewed. Resting, fasting, and meditation are encouraged for a few hours around the time of an eclipse.
Note 2: In the SAMVA* chart for USA, transit Rahu and Ketu are now stationary at 20 degrees in even signs, (Cancer and Capricorn) – and afflict 6 of the 12 houses in the horoscope. This is NOT ideal for the country and suggests we may be in for serious challenges for the next 3 months. (On the day that Rahu and Ketu went stationary, the U.S. government shut down). *Systems’ Approach to Mundane Astrology.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Capricorn, from 11:06 to 18:12°. This connects governments with practical matters, including working-class persons, the elderly, immigration and agriculture.
Moon is waxing and transits Aries, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer. The full (and Blue) Moon occurs during a Total Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Cancer on Jan. 31st at 7:29 a.m. CST. Watch your emotional state and be careful in crowds or around volatile persons. Get extra rest, fast and meditate around the close hours of the eclipse.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 05:06 to 09:23°. Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful for the military, police, athletes, firefighters, executives and property matters.
Mercury transits out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, Jan. 27th at 1:34 p.m. CST. Mercury is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees until Jan. 31st. Be careful with stocks, business, and communications.
Jupiter transits Libra, from 26:22 to 27:10°. Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees until May 3rd. This may cause some issues with law, education and religion.
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 regarding the sexual harassment of women. This slow-moving 13-month transit of Jupiter in Libra provides 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 Capricorn, from 14:54 to 23:42 °. Venus is closely conjunct Ketu until Feb. 2nd. Take care of the women in your life and be patient with romance, luxuries, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts. Be careful with transportation and weather conditions. Watch for news about well-known women.
Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 10:01 to 10:45°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be helpful for 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, from 20:53 to 20:49°. Rahu and Ketu remain in the 20-degree range until March 19th. This stationary position of Rahu and Ketu is generally NOT favorable worldwide. 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.
