Notes: Sun is closely conjunct Rahu (and under the 7th aspect of Saturn and Ketu) until July 14th. This is not ideal for leaders, physicians, administrators and governments.
Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress and should be careful and patient.
Saturn remains closely conjunct Ketu (April 5 – Oct. 18), indicating serious issues worldwide — for immigrants, the elderly, the poor and needy, working-class persons, manufacturing, agriculture — and with global warming/weather-related stressful situations.
Be especially vigilant until July 12th — as Saturn and Ketu are now in EXACT conjunction.
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
- Sun transits Gemini from 17:50 to 24:30°. This connects governments with business, finance, technology, communications and social events. Sun is closely conjunct Rahu, under the 7th aspect of Saturn and Ketu until July 14th. This is not ideal for leaders, physicians, administrators and governments. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
- Moon is waxing and transits Cancer, Leo, Virgo and into Libra.
- Mars transits its debilitation sign, Cancer, from 07:17 to 09:55°. Mars is closely conjunct Mercury until July 14th. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Mars is debilitated until August 9th. This is NOT ideal for the military, police, athletes, executives, firefighters and property matters.
- Mercury transits Cancer, from 09:47 to 09:55°. Mercury is closely conjunct Mars until July 14th. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Mercury is retrograde July 8 – August 1.
- Jupiter transits Scorpio, from 22:31 to 21:53°. Jupiter is outside the orb of other planets, which should be favorable for law, religion and education. Jupiter is in retrograde motion until August 11th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries, (including USA), should be vigilant whenever Jupiter is within 5 degrees of their rising sign degree or any planet in their birth or transit chart, by aspect or conjunction.
- Venus transits Gemini, from 06:34 to 15:08°. Venus is in strong degrees and is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for women (Senators and Harris and Warren move up in the political polls), along with romance, luxuries, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts.
- Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 23:29 to 22:58°. This connects law, religion and education with the elderly, the poor and needy, immigrants, agriculture, manufacturing and working-class persons. Saturn is retrograde until Sept. 18th and is closely conjunct Ketu for 28 weeks — April 5th to October 18th.
- This rare and slow-moving transit is causing serious problems worldwide – relative to immigrants, the poor and needy, working-class persons, the elderly, health care, agriculture, manufacturing, global warming, and the oil, gas and minerals industries. Events include weather-related catastrophes (fires, floods, cyclones, volcanoes, tsunamis, and earthquakes), pandemics, economic collapses, and military conflicts.
- Rahu and Ketu transit Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, from 23:29 to 23:30°. Rahu and Ketu are now “stationary” in the 23-degree range June 2 – August 18. This indicates significant stress for those persons with planets in “odd” signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius) between 22 to 24 degrees – or whenever Rahu or Ketu are within 5 degrees of a person’s rising sign degree (in any house), or any planet (by aspect or conjunction).
