Notes: The transits may be challenging this week for Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA). Exercise care and patience.
Saturn remains conjunct Ketu (April 5 – Oct. 18) indicating serious issues worldwide.
NOTE from Sara: If anyone is having a particularly difficult time right now (like many people I know), please consider ordering a Kavach to strengthen all of your benefic planets in your chart or the monthly yagya participation or Graha Shanti services in India to propitated the planets causing adverse effects.
*For this Saturn conjunct Ketu transit the Graha Shanti service would be ideal to do for the next 3 months during this serious transit and then you can do the monthly yagya participation for the final month of this transit. If you cannot afford all 4 months I would suggest instead ordering a kavach or doing however many months of Graha Shanti you can afford. I have gotten a lot of very good feedback from the Graha Shanti services from my clients lately.
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
- Sun transits Gemini from 04:29 to 11:09°. This connects governments with business, finance, technology, communications and social events. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be good for leaders, physicians, administrators and governments.
- Moon is waning and transits Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and into Aries. Moon, in Aquarius, is under the 9thaspect of Rahu, June 24th. Watch your emotional state and be careful in crowds and around volatile persons.
- Mars transits out of Gemini and into its debilitation sign, Cancer, June 23rd. 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 weak in degrees until June 30th and is debilitated until August 9th. This is not ideal for the military, police, athletes, executives, firefighters and property matters.
- Mercury transits out of its own sign, Gemini, and into Cancer, June 21st. Mercury is weak in degrees until June 26th. Be careful with stocks, business, computers, finances, technology, communications and intellectual property. Mercury is closely conjunct Mars until July 14th. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
- Jupiter transits Scorpio, from 24:08 to 23:18°. Jupiter is under the 7th aspect Venus until June 27th. Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. 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 and/or any planet in the birth or transit chart, by aspect or conjunction.
- Venus transits Taurus, from 19:27 to 28:00°. Venus is under the 7th aspect of Jupiter until June 27th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries, (including USA), should be careful and patient.
- Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 24:29 to 24:02°. 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 likely to cause serious problems worldwide – relative to immigrants, the poor and needy, working-class persons, the elderly, agriculture, manufacturing, volcanoes, earthquakes, weather-related catastrophes, healthcare and pandemics, global resources and economies, world peace and the oil, gas, and minerals industries.
- Rahu and Ketu transit Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, from 23:30 to 23:34°. 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).
