Planetary Transits for June 15 – June 21
The first part of this newsletter describes the position of the (Vedic astrology) planets this week.
The second part describes the impact of the transit planets for each rising sign.
Note: Sun and Mercury are under the unfavorable 5th aspect of Ketu until June 21. Take care of your father and your head, heart, blood, bones, digestion and blood pressure.. Be vigilant around authority figures and with stocks, business, technology and communications. Watch for setbacks and unexpected news about leaders, presidents and governments.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Taurus, from 00:11 to 06:52°. Sun is under the 5th aspect of Ketu (the southern node of the Moon), until June 21. This is not ideal for leaders, fathers, physicians, administrators, and governments – and generally represents serious setbacks, obstructions, violence, accidents, explosions, or deathlike experiences. (Case in point: Shooting at GOP Ballgame.)
(Special note: Transit Sun would be under the close influence of Ketu between 15th to 18th June, which can cause sudden job and health concerns. Take care and work with patience. The persons born in the ascending signs of Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces would be comparatively more vulnerable. V K Choudhry, Gurgaon, India)
Moon is waning and transits Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, and into Taurus.
Mars transits Gemini, from 12:52 to 17:28°. Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful for the military, police, athletes, surgeons, real estate, etc.
Mercury transits out of Taurus and into Gemini, June 18 at 11:22 a.m. CDT. Mercury is under the 5th aspect of Ketu (the southern node of the Moon), June 17 – 21. This is not ideal for stocks, business, technology, communications, and intellectual property. Mercury is closely conjunct Sun, June 17 – 25. Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient as Sun rules their 12th, 8th, and 6th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Jupiter transits Virgo, from 19:09 to 19:21°. Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor (landlord), the fast-moving and frequently weak
Mercury, until Sept. 12. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should continue to be careful and patient as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Venus transits Aries, from 14:49 to 22:06°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be helpful for women, luxuries, romance, entertainment, medicine, and transportation.
Saturn transits out of Sagittarius, and back into Scorpio on June 20 at 5:11 p.m. CDT. Saturn is in retrograde motion until Aug. 25th. The adverse effects are primarily for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising signs – but only when Saturn is within 5 degrees of the person’s rising sign degree, or another planet by conjunction or aspect.
Saturn remains in Scorpio until October 26th. During this time, Aries, Gemini, and Sagittarius rising sign persons, companies, and countries should be careful and patient as Saturn will be in their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Saturn is under the 5th aspect of Rahu until Nov. 6 and is weak in degrees until Dec. 12th. This is not helpful for the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons. Expect issues relative to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, as well as for immigration, agriculture, manufacturing, health care, the environment, and the oil, gas and minerals industries.

In the SAMVA chart/horoscope* for USA, this Saturn transit causes serious issues relative to debts, setbacks, accidents, health and legal issues and even deathlike experiences – through October. Be vigilant and avoid stressful people and situations.
Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 01:55 to 01:36°. Those persons, companies or countries with 0 – 2° rising signs or with any planet at 0 – 2° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be careful and patient.
Note: In the SAMVA* chart for USA, the transit of the 6th house ruler, Jupiter, afflicts the 3rd, 7th, 9th, and 11th houses, which causes fire, theft, debts, disputes, enemies and litigation for the entire country through July. (Note all the legal proceedings in the U.S. Government.)
