Planetary Transits for March 27th – April 2nd
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Note 1: In the SAMVA* chart for Russia, significant stress is seen for property and domestic peace. Both transit Jupiter, ruling the sixth house of debts and disputes, and Saturn, ruling the eighth house of setbacks and deathlike experiences, are afflicting natal Venus, ruling assets, property, and domestic peace.
Additionally, transit Mars, ruling the military and the economy – is closely conjunct the ruler of the unfavorable eighth house, Saturn, until April 11th – and is in the unfavorable eighth house, April 7th – May 16th.
The Jupiter influence on Venus is through mid-April, the Saturn influence on Venus is through mid-May. These factors clearly represent domestic unrest and national stress.
Note 2: In the SAMVA* chart for Ukraine, transit Jupiter (ruling the twelfth house of losses, expenses and separations) is under the ninth aspect of natal Ketu (from the sixth house of conflicts and enemies) until April 11th. Jupiter is also under the fifth aspect of transit Ketu until April 28th. Unfortunately, this most likely indicates continued stress through April.

Planetary Transits for this Week:
Sun transits Pisces, from 12:18 to 19:13°. This connects leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and governments with law, justice, religion and education. Sun is closely conjunct Mercury until April 8th. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Moon is waning/waxing and transits Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and into Aries. The new Moon is in Pisces, April 1st.
Mars transits its exaltation sign, Capricorn, from 21:31 – 26:47°. This should be favorable for the military, police, athletes, surgeons, engineers, contractors, national security, etc.
Mercury transits its debilitation sign, Pisces, from 05:32 to 19:25°. Be patient with stocks, business, finance, technology and communications. Mercury is closely conjunct Sun until April 8th. Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including Ukraine) should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Aquarius, from 25:59 to 27:38°. Jupiter is under the close fifth aspect of Ketu through April 28th. This is not ideal for law, religion, children, and morality related to the masses, the elderly and humanitarian efforts.

Saturn is now weak in degrees (until Sept. 27th). This is not ideal for the masses, along with manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas, and minerals industries.
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 29:28 to 28:47°. People, companies, and countries with planets or a rising sign between 0 and 2 degrees in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces) and between 26 and 30 degrees in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius) in these degrees, should be careful and patient. (Including Ukraine!)
