(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
Notes: Mars is under the close ninth aspect of Ketu until July 6. There may be serious issues relative to sports*, police, military, weather and property — including fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc. (*The vast majority of Japanese citizens don’t want the Tokyo Olympic Games to happen this summer.)
There are two additional factors contributing to disturbances worldwide. These include the stationary position of Rahu and Ketu in the 16-degree range (April 26 to July 12), and the close influence of Rahu on Saturn (March 15 – September 19). These prolonged influences are difficult for most everyone, everywhere.
Be especially vigilant during July and August, when Saturn is two degrees or less from the ninth aspect of Rahu. (There may be issues relative to Covid-19, the masses, the elderly, immigrants, working class persons, agriculture and manufacturing.)
It is likely that life will improve by the end of September – other transits notwithstanding.
Sun transits Gemini, from 08:45 to 15:26°. This connects leaders and governments with business and communications. Sun is under the fifth aspect of Jupiter until June 27. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.
Moon is waxing/waning and transits Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. The full Moon is in Sagittarius, June 24 at 1:39 p.m. CDT.
Mars transits its debilitation sign, Cancer, from 13:39 to 17:59°. Mars is under the seventh aspect of Saturn until July 8. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Mars is weak (in debilitation) until July 20. Be patient with the military, police, athletes, surgeons, executive decisions, and property matters.
Mercury transits Taurus, from 22:02 to 24:41° and is now out of retrograde motion. This should be favorable for finance, business, technology, communications and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits Aquarius from 8:00 to 07:51°. Jupiter is retrograde until October 18. The adverse effects are primarily for Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons — but only when Jupiter is within five degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart.
Venus transits Cancer, from 02:14 to 10:43°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be helpful for law, women, design, fashion, medicine, luxuries, advertising, photography, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts, et al.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 18:34 to 18:12°. Saturn is under the seventh aspect of Mars until July 8. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Saturn is in retrograde motion until October 10. The retrograde motion of Saturn is adverse primarily only for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons – but only when Saturn is within five degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart.
Saturn remains within three degrees of the ninth aspect of Rahu until September 19. There may be continued issues for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, working-class persons, agriculture and manufacturing (including the oil, gas, and minerals industries). Be especially vigilant during July and August when Saturn is even closer — within two degrees of Rahu.
Rahu and Ketu transit Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 16:32 to 16:13°. Rahu and Ketu remain stationary in the 16° range until July 12th. This is not ideal worldwide. Persons, companies and countries (such as India and Israel) with a rising sign between 15 and 17 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) in these same degrees, should exercise a great deal of care and patience.
