Transits for this Week:
Sun transits Cancer, from 07:08 to 13:49 °. This connects leaders, presidents, physicians, governments, and administrators with public works. Sun is under the fifth aspect of Jupiter, July 26th – August 5th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons should be careful and patient.
Moon is waning/waxing and transits Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and into Leo.
Mars transits Aries, from 18:47 to 23:23°. Mars is closely conjunct Rahu, July 25th to August 8th. There may be sudden issues for the police, military, athletes, surgeons, executives, engineers – along with weather and property matters.
(Note: Japan’s Sakurajima Volcano Erupts.)
Mercury transits Cancer, from 15:25 to 28:42°. Mercury is under the fourth aspect of Mars until July 30th. This connects stocks, business, technology and communications with police, military or property matters. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces, from 14:30 to 14:32°. Jupiter is in excellent strength. This should be favorable for nine of the twelve rising signs. However, Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including India, USA, Russia and Ukraine) should be vigilant whenever transit Jupiter is within five degrees of their rising sign degree in any house, or any planet, by aspect or conjunction.
Venus transits Gemini, from 13:15 to 21:44°. This should be favorable for most all of Venus significations, including medicine, romance, luxuries, architectures, and the fine, healing or performing arts.
Saturn transits Capricorn, from 29:16 to 28:47°. Saturn is weak in degrees until late September. This may not support the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons, along with manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
Saturn is in retrograde motion until October 23rd. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a problem for most people. The impact is primarily for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries – and ONLY when Saturn is within five degrees of the rising sign degree, or any other planet, by aspect or conjunction.
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 25:50 to 24:37°. People, companies, and countries with planets or rising signs between 24 and 27 degrees in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should be careful and patient.

Quote of the Week:
“The best indicator of your level of consciousness is how you deal with life’s challenges when they come. Through those challenges, an already unconscious person tends to become more deeply unconscious, and a conscious person more intensely conscious. You can use a challenge to awaken you, or you can allow it to pull you into even deeper sleep.” – Eckhart Tolle
