(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
In the horoscope for USA*, the transit of Rahu (sudden calamities) is applying its ninth aspect to natal Venus, ruling women, medicine, the arts, and the fourth house of property and domestic peace. This impact remains through mid-September.
Additionally, Rahu and Ketu will afflict six of the twelve houses mid-August to mid-December. During this same time, transit Saturn, ruling the eighth house of setbacks, accidents and deathlike experiences, will afflict Sun, ruling the president, the government, and the country’s wealth, status and family life. Unfortunately, this likely indicates stress for the country through the mid-term elections.
