Planetary Transits for May 25 – May 31
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.
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. (This also reflects the firing of the Director of the FBI, and the investigation of the Trump campaign staff and the president himself). *Systems’ Approach to Mundane Astrology.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Taurus from 10:05 to 16:48°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets until May 29. This should be good for leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and governments.
Moon is waxing and transits Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and into Leo. The new Moon is in Taurus, May 25th. Moon, in Cancer is in its own sign, free from afflictions, May 29 – 30. This should be favorable for emotional life.
Mars transits out of Taurus and into Gemini, May 26 at 2:02 p.m. CDT. Mars is weak in degrees until June 3rd. Be careful with property matters. The police, military, athletes, surgeons and executives should get extra rest. Mars is under the 7th aspect of Saturn until June 3. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces persons, companies and countries, (including USA), should be careful and patient as Saturn rules their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Mercury transits Aries, from 15:49 to 26:02°. Mercury is outside the orb or influence of other planets. This should be helpful for stocks, business, technology, communications, and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits Virgo, from 19:58 to 19:13°. Jupiter moves away from the seventh aspect of Venus. Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should see some relief from recent stress.
Jupiter is retrograde, Feb. 6 – June 9. The adverse effects are primarily for Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn – and only when Jupiter is within 5 degrees of the person’s rising sign degree, or another planet by conjunction or aspect. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should also be careful through mid-September as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.

Saturn is retrograde until Aug. 25th. The adverse effects are primarily for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising signs – and 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 problems relative to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, as well as for immigration, agriculture, manufacturing and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
Note: In the SAMVA* chart/horoscope for USA, this Saturn transit causes serious issues relative to debts, setbacks, accidents, health and legal issues and deathlike experiences – through October. Be vigilant and avoid stressful people and situations. *Systems’ Approach to Mundane Astrology.
Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 04:07 to 03:29°. Those persons, companies or countries with 2 – 5° rising signs or with any planet at 2 – 5° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be careful and patient.
