Planetary Transits for June 8 – June 14

Planetary Transits for June 8 – June 14

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.
Last week’s prediction: “These (afflictions to Mars and Venus) are not positive influences and indicate issues relative to war, fire, military, explosions, transportation, weather, etc…” (London Bridge Attack; Kabul Afghanistan Bombing; Attackers Bomb Iran Parliament; Myanmar Army Plane with 105 Missing; Gunman Torches Philippine Casino; Severe Storms in North Carolina, Kentucky and the Southeast, et al.) Expect relief this week.
Sun transits out of Taurus, June 14 at 6:03 p.m. CDT.  Sun is weak in degrees until June 9th. Leaders, physicians, administrators, and governments should get extra rest.
Moon is waxing/waning and transits Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and into Aquarius.
Mars transits Gemini from 08:14 to 12:52°.  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 Taurus, from 08:17 to 22:24°. This should be good for stocks, business, technology, communications, and intellectual property. Mercury is under the 9th aspect of Jupiter, June 11 – 15.  Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient during these 5 days, as Jupiter rules their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses.
Jupiter transits Virgo, from 19:07 to 19:09°.  Jupiter completes its 4-month retrograde motion onJune 9th and is outside the orb of influence of other planets.  Jupiter 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 07:46 to 14:49°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be helpful for women, luxuries, romance, entertainment, medicine, and transportation.
Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 00:56 to 00:25°. 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 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, the environment, (Trump Announces U.S. Withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord) 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 02:45 to 01:55°.  Those persons, companies or countries with 0 – 3° rising signs or with any planet at 0 – 3° 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.)
