Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
Note: Sun and Jupiter are in a mutual aspect; Moon is waxing; Mars is closely conjunct Rahu and in a mutual aspect with Saturn; Mercury and Venus are in their own signs; Rahu and Ketu are stationary. This gives highs and lows, worldwide. Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
- Sun transits Taurus, from 21:06 to 27:48 °. Sun is under the 7th aspect of Jupiter until June 14th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
- Moon is waxing and transits Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo and into Libra.
- Mars transits Gemini, from 19:26 to 23:54°. Mars is closely conjunct the northern node of the Moon, Rahu, (a mathematical ecliptic point in the zodiac) until June 20th. This is absolutely NOT ideal for the military, police, athletes, executives, firefighters and buying property. Mars is under the 7th aspect of Saturn until Jun 21st. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
- Mercury transits its own sign, Gemini, from 08:23 to 19:56 °. This is a good situation for Mercury and may represent an improvement with stocks, business, computers, finances, technology, communications and intellectual property.
- Jupiter transits Scorpio, from 25:59 to 25:01 °. Jupiter is under the 7th aspect of Sun until June 14th. Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries are likely under stress.
- Venus transits Taurus, from 02:23 to 10:55°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for women, romance, luxuries, vehicles, medicine, legal matters, finance, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts.
- Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 25:20 to 24:55°. This connects law, religion and education with the elderly, the poor and needy, immigrants, agriculture, manufacturing and working-class persons. Saturn is under the 7thaspect of Mars, until June 21st. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries are likely under stress. 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 – for immigrants, the poor and needy, working-class persons, the elderly, agriculture, manufacturing, things of the earth, (including climate change and weather-related catastrophes), healthcare, economic resources, the oil and gas industries and world peace.
- Rahu and Ketu transit Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, from 23:45 to 23:44°. 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).
