Planetary Transits for November 6th – November 12th
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Notes: Venus is now clear of Ketu. Sun and Mercury will also clear Ketu over the next couple of days. This should be better than last week’s rollercoaster ride.
We do, however, have to contend with the Total Lunar Eclipse on Nov. 8th, 5:02 a.m. CST – the date of the U.S. Midterm Elections.
Voting: Sun, ruling the president and government officials, is always debilitated in the sign of Libra from mid-October to mid-November — when we hold our national elections. (This may be why elections are stressful.) This date was originally chosen so farmers could travel to vote — after harvest and before winter. Astrologically, it would be better to hold elections the first Tuesday in September, when Sun is always in powerful degrees in its own sign of Leo.
Rahu and Ketu remain stationary in the 19-degree range until Nov. 29th. The prolonged (10-week) movement of Rahu and Ketu is not ideal worldwide – and involves extremes and sudden fluctuations. (Note the bridge collapse in India, the Halloween parade tragedy in South Korea, and Airplane crash in Tanzania, et al.) Exercise care and patience and do not take risks or chances.
People, companies and countries with rising signs between 17 and 21 degrees, or with planets between 17 and 21 degrees in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should be especially careful and patient.
Transits for this Week:
Sun transits its debilitation sign, Libra, from 19:35 to 26:39°. Sun remains closely conjunct Venus until November 9th. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Sun is closely conjunct Mercury until Nov. 17th. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should also be careful and patient.
Sun is closely conjunct Ketu, under the influence of Rahu, until Nov. 11th. Leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and governments should exercise care and patience. This is also likely to create delays, setbacks, deceptions, obstructions and manipulations – extreme fluctuations — with the U.S. Midterm Elections.
Moon is waxing/waning and transits Pisces, Aries, Taurus, and into Gemini. The Total Lunar Eclipse and full (Beaver/Blood) Moon is in Aries, November 8th at 5:02 a.m., CST.
(Some Vedic astrologers advise it is better to stay indoors and fast and meditate during eclipses – to avoid seeing the omen/shadow of the Sun or Moon.)
Mars transits Gemini, from 01:07 to 00:04°. Mars is weak in degrees until November 29th. There may be issues for the police, military, athletes, surgeons, executives, engineers, and property matters. (Capitol Police under fire for lack of protection for Paul Pelosi, the husband of the U.S. House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi.)
Mercury transits Libra, from 18:03to 29:21°. Mercury is closely conjunct Ketu, under the influence of Rahu until Nov. 11th. Expect highs and lows with stocks, business, technology, and communications. Mercury is closely conjunct Sun until Nov. 17th. Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including Ukraine) should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces, from 05:09 to 04:49°. This remains favorable for law and justice – and sheds light on the illicit activities of deceptive and manipulative persons and organizations (e.g., those involved in the Jan. 6th insurrection and other illegal or fraudulent practices.)
Jupiter is in retrograde motion until November 23rd. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA, Russia and Ukraine) should be careful and patient when Jupiter is within five degrees of their rising sign degree in any house, or any planet, by aspect or conjunction.
Venus transits out of its own sign, Libra, and into Scorpio, November 11th. Venus is weak in degrees until November 15th. Be patient with women, romance, beauty, luxuries, entertainment, and the fine, healing or performing arts. Venus remains closely conjunct Sun until November 9th. Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including Ukraine) should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits Capricorn, from 24:35 to 24:47°. Saturn is in good strength degrees. This should be helpful for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons, along with manufacturing, agriculture, sustainable living, and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
(This could indicate a large turnout by the elderly for the Midterm Elections — to protect Medicare and Social Security.)
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 19:13 to 19:10°. Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 19-degree range from September 23rd until November 29th. The prolonged (10-week) movement of Rahu and Ketu is generally not ideal — worldwide. Additionally, people, companies, and countries with rising signs between 17 and 21 degrees, or with planets between 17 and 21 degrees in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius, should be especially careful and patient.
The Impact of the Transit Planets for each “Rising Sign” (not “Sun Sign”)
Aries: Continue to focus on communications, independent projects and entrepreneurial ventures for one more week. Connect pets, children, education, investments and spiritual pursuits with marriage, partnerships, joint ventures or foreign lands. These should do well. Be vigilant, however, to manage personal debts, disputes, health or legal issues. Work hard and be of service to others – and count on income and friendships in the workplace through mid-Jan. Expenses or separations remain possible with father or religious figures and long-distance travel through mid-April. Money and friendships are favorable through March 2025.
Taurus: Take care with your mind, pets, children, education, investments and spiritual pursuits. These, along with property, vehicles and home life, remain vulnerable to stress, debts, disputes, health or legal issues. There is, however, some protection for you personally in these matters. There is also support for retreats, ashrams, foreign lands or institutional life. Good fortune in the workplace is generally with you through mid-January. There may be a marriage, windfall, legal or insurance settlement through March 2023. You can also earn money from teaching, publishing and advisory roles.
Gemini: Connect property, vehicles, fixed assets, communications and entrepreneurial investments with pets, children, education, and investments. Continue to be patient with your health (stomach, digestion, and blood pressure) and with authority figures or government officials. Income and friendships remain weak, but favorable and forefront through Nov 12th. Take time for exercise, yoga, qigong, or marital arts. Father figures and long-distance journeys remain vulnerable through mid-January. On the other hand, you should be able to count on good fortune with your career — connected with marriage, partnerships, and international ventures – through next March. Teach, publish, consult and advise.
Cancer: Continue to be vigilant with communications and independent projects; these are vulnerable to highs and lows. Expect some improvement with your status and family life, along with property, vehicles and home life. Work out of your home on writing, business, and technology. Be careful around authority figures. Connect your career with institutions and long-distance places – but there may be expenses and separations with these through Nov. 12th. Take care with relationships through mid-January. On the other hand, you have support against debts, disputes, health or legal issues through next March — except when Jupiter is close to your rising sign degree — or any planet in your horoscope — by aspect or conjunction.
Leo: Be careful for a couple of days with your status, speech and what you eat. Focus on business, finance, technology, communications and independent projects. There is a favorable connection with the fine, healing or performing arts. Do not, however, burn the midnight oil — stay rested through Nov. 15th. Remain patient with relationships, joint ventures, and foreign lands through mid-January. Mixed results are likely with children, education and investments – ranging from setbacks, accidents, and obstructions to marriage, inheritance, windfalls, legal or insurance issues — through next mid-April.
Virgo: Be vigilant for a few days to manage sudden fluctuations. Some relief is seen with your wealth, status and family life. Ashrams, institutions or foreign lands remain forefront and favorable. Take care of pets, children, education and investments through mid-Jan. (You can consider involvement in oil, gas, minerals, agriculture, or manufacturing industries.) Fortunately, Jupiter is in Pisces (a Hamsa Yoga) in your seventh house through mid-April. This should add protective covering to relationships and is favorable for marriage property, vehicles, home life, partnerships, joint ventures, and life abroad.
Libra: Be patient for a few days to manage losses, expenses, insomnia or separations. On the other hand, income and friendship are forefront and favorable. Continue to be a leader. Enjoy a few more days of the Malavya Yoga in your first house. Get a haircut, buy new clothes or enjoy a day spa. There is some support for partnerships, relationships or international ventures for one more week. Connect pets, children, education and investments with property, vehicles, and home life through mid-January. You can also connect independent projects — with law, medicine, finances, social work, psychology and being of service to others through mid-April – but be vigilant to manage debts and disputes with these as well.
Scorpio: Be patient for a few days with income, friendships and siblings. These remain vulnerable to expenses or separations. There also may be stress, losses or international ventures in the workplace. Be careful with government and authority figures through Nov. 15th. Continue to manage debts, disputes, health or legal issues – and watch your stomach, digestion and blood pressure. Your best bet is to work out of your home on independent projects through mid-Jan. Fortunately, the transit of Jupiter and Saturn (ruling your wealth, status, property, and family life), through favorable houses, should add protective covering through next March. Children, education, investments and spiritual pursuits should also do well through mid-April.
Sagittarius: Be vigilant at work to manage setbacks and fluctuations. There may be gains with women, luxuries, entertainment and the fine, healing or performing arts. There may also be good fortune with authority figures or large organizations. Connect children, education and investments with partnerships and joint ventures through mid-Nov. Be conservative with entrepreneurial ventures through mid-January — but expect long-term success with these through March 2025. You also have a Hamsa Yoga in your fourth house, (Jupiter in its own sign, Pisces), until mid-April. This supports property, vehicles, and home life. Teach, publish and advise, from home. Divine grace is likely with you and your family.
Capricorn: Take care of father/religious figures and with long-distance journeys. There may be setbacks, accidents or vulnerability with these. There is some relief in the workplace, but be patient with your career through November 15th. Connect with women and focus on the fine, healing or performing arts. There may also be some relief with marriage, windfalls, inheritance and legal or insurance settlements. There should be some improvement — and the final week — with the Malayva Yoga in your tenth house of career. Be patient, however, with property, vehicles and home life through mid-November 12th. Fortunately, your wealth, status and family life are favorably disposed through mid-January. Focus on independent projects – teach, publish and advise – associated with institutions, spiritual or religious centers, and long-distance places through next mid-April.
Aquarius: Be patient with marriage, windfalls, inheritance and settlements and to avoid some kind of accident. On the other hand, there may be good fortune with partnerships, joint ventures, foreign lands or long-distance travel. Connect independent, entrepreneurial projects with pets, children, education, investments or spiritual pursuits through November 12th. Consider retreats, ashrams, institutions or international ventures through mid-January. Income and friendships support your wealth, status and family life through next mid-April. Speak up as a teacher, publisher, consultant or religious leader.
Pisces: Take care with marriage, partnerships, joint ventures, and foreign lands. These may be vulnerable to setbacks, accidents or obstructions. There is some protection for a windfall, inheritance, legal or insurance settlement. Continue to work on research, languages, ancient knowledge and Vedic sciences. Mars, in your fourth house, may be helpful to some extent and connects your wealth, status and family life with property, vehicles, and home life. Gain from hard work and being of service to others – but be careful to manage expenses and separations with income, friendships or siblings through mid-January. Fortunately, Jupiter remains in Pisces in your first house until next April. This indicates career opportunities. Teach, publish, consult and advise. Many people will come to you for advice.
Note: Planetary remedies add a protective covering to life. Strengthen your favorable planets (with color and gemstone therapy and/or the mystical pendant known as the kavach: (https://astroview.com/mystical-pendant/) and do “Bhoota” and “Deva” “Yagyas” (charities and chants) for the planets that cause adverse effects in your horoscope.
