Note: Rahu and Ketu are stationary for three months (May 4 to August 5.) This generally produces stress worldwide. In this case, they appear to be prolonging problems relative to the global pandemic, the weather and environment, global economics, and societal upheavals.
If you are feeling anxious, restless, vulnerable, etc., then you most likely have Rahu and Ketu within 5 degrees of your rising sign degree, or one or more of your planets, by aspect or conjunction.
Unfortunately, we cannot hurry along the planets, so exercise patience and be vigilant with your diet, sleep, and spiritual practices – and avoid stressful people and situations.
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
- Sun transits Gemini, from 16:38 to 23:18°. This connects the government with stocks, business, finance, technology, communications and intellectual property.
- Moon is waxing/waning and transits Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and into Aquarius. The full Moon is in Sagittarius, July 4th at 11:44 p.m., CDT. SEE THE NOTE BELOW ABOUT GURU PURNIMA.
- Mars transits Pisces, from 08:20 to 12:21°. Mars moves outside the orb of influence of other planets. This connects property with water; watch out for flooding.
- Mercury transits its own sign, Gemini, from 14:57 to 11:45°. Mercury is under the 4th of Mars until July 31st. This connects business, technology and communications with property, the military, police, and national security. Mercury is retrograde until July 12th. The adverse effects of this transit are only for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons – and only when Mercury is within 5 degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction.
- Jupiter transits its own sign of Sagittarius, from 29:43 to 28:51°. This is some improvement, but Jupiter remains weak in degrees until August 10th, so there is still vulnerability for law, banking, religion, education, husbands, children, teachers, advisors and consultants. Jupiter is in retrograde motion until Sept. 13th. The adverse effects of this transit are only for Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) – and only when Jupiter is within 5 degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction.
- Venus transits its own sign, Taurus, from 12:04 to 14:33°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for women, romance, medicine, finance, entertainment and the fine, healing, and performing arts.
- Saturn transits Capricorn, from 05:50 to 05:25°. Saturn is in good strength and outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for the masses*, the elderly, the poor and needy, agriculture, and the oil, gas and minerals industries. (*Note the progress with BLM and DACA.)
- Saturn is in retrograde motion, May 11 – Sept. 29. The adverse effects of this transit are only for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) – and only when Saturn is within 5 degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction.
- Rahu and Ketu transit Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, from 04:58 to 04:51° (stationary). This represents stress for persons, companies and countries with planets in “odd” signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius) between 4 and 5 degrees –or for anyone — whenever Rahu or Ketu are within 5 degrees of his or her rising sign degree (in any house), or any planet (by aspect or conjunction).
