Planetary Transits for June 26th – July 2nd
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Notes: My apologies. I was under the impression that the transit of a strong Jupiter would help law and justice. Clearly this is not the case for those of us who believe women have the right to make their own health care decisions.
However, when we consider the horoscope for USA, then we see that the transit of Jupiter, the sixth house ruler, (debts, disputes, health and legal issues), is afflicting Mars, ruling the tenth house of karma and the field of action.
Additionally, transit Rahu (unexpected calamities) is applying its ninth aspect to natal Venus, ruling women and the nation’s fourth house of domestic peace.
The main and sub period ruler, Moon, which rules the chart, is under the permanent affliction of the sixth house ruler, Jupiter – indicating ongoing disputes and litigation.
In terms of the near future, Rahu and Ketu will be afflicting six of the twelve houses in the horoscope from mid-August to mid-December. During this same time, transit Saturn, ruling the eighth house of setbacks, accidents and deathlike experiences, will be afflicting Sun, ruling the president, the government, and the country’s wealth, status and family life. Unfortunately, this is absolutely NOT favorable and most likely indicates severe stress for the country through the mid-term elections.
Transits for this Week:
Sun transits Gemini, from 10:26 to 17:06°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets.
Moon is waning/waxing and transits Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and into Leo.
Mars transits out of Pisces and into Aries, June 26th at 7:10 p.m. CDT. Mars is weak in degrees until July 3rd. Police, military, athletes, executives, and surgeons should get extra rest. Be patient with property matters.
Mercury transits out of Taurus and into its own sign, Gemini, July 1st at 11:15 p.m., CDT. Mercury is weak in degrees until July 4th. Be patient with stocks, business, finance, technology and communications.
Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces from 12:51 to 13:29°. 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 Taurus, from 09:37 to 17:59°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for women, romance, luxuries, affluence and the fine, healing and performing arts.
Saturn transits its own sign, Aquarius, from 00:43 to 00:27°. Saturn is weak in degrees, which does 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. (Inflation and gasoline prices escalate.)
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 27:47 to 27:00°. Rahu and Ketu are moving slowly away from their stationary positions in the 28° range. People, companies, and countries with planets or rising signs between 25 and 30 degrees in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should be careful and patient.

Quote of the Week: “Your true nature is peace. Your true nature is awareness. Awareness is an extraordinary silence. It is not “made” silence. It is “being” silence. Peace is moment to moment awareness of what is. When you pay attention to what is – without any judgement, without any criticism, without any like or dislike. In that state of silence, in the state of awareness, there is a great deal of peace. That peace is the divine song of soul. – Vasant Lad
