Planetary Transits for March 7 – March 13

Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week

  • Sun transits Aquarius, from 22:15 to 29:14°. Sun is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn, March 2 – 13.  Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) remain under stress. (Severe Weather and Tornadoes Slam USA.)
  • Moon is waxing and transits Aquarius, Pisces, Aries and Taurus.
  • Mars transits Aries from 19:52 to 24:34°. Mars is in good strength and outside the orb of influence of other planets. This is favorable for 10 of the 12 rising signs. Taurus and Virgo rising sign persons, companies and countries, however, should be careful and patient, as Mars in their 12th and 8th houses, respectively.
  • Mercury transits its debilitation sign, Pisces, from 05:21 to 00:12°. Mercury is weak in its debilitation sign until March 15. Be careful with stocks, finance, business, computers, technology and communications. Mercury is in retrograde motion from March 5 – 28. This is only a problem if Mercury is a “functional malefic planet” (as it is for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising signs) and only if it is within 5 degrees of another planet by aspect or conjunction, or the rising sign degree – in any house.)
  • Jupiter transits Scorpio, from 28:25 to 29:04°.  Jupiter is now weak in old age degrees. This may cause issues for law, publishing, teaching, education, advisory roles and religious organizations.
  • Venus transits Capricorn, from 12:28 to 20:48°.  Venus is in good strength and is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be good for women, romance, luxuries, medicine, vehicles, legal issues, finance, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts.
  • Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 24:08 to 24:40°. This connects law, religion and education with the elderly, the poor and needy, immigrants, and working-class persons.
  • Rahu and Ketu transit Cancer and Capricorn, respectively, from 01:31 00:42°. Those persons with 0 to 2° rising signs or with any planets in the 0 to 2°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces —including the USA) should be careful and patient.
