Planetary Transits November 7th — November 13th
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Please also see Special Notes included at the bottom of this weekʻs column.
Sun transits its debilitation sign, Libra, from 20:50 to 27:55°. Sun remains debilitated until November 16th. This is not ideal for presidents, physicians, administrators and governments. Be patient with father and authority figures. Take care of your stomach, digestion, heart, blood, bones and immune system.
Moon is waxing and transits Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn.
Mars transits Libra, from 10:58 to 15:44°. Mars is closely conjunct Mercury until November 15th. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Mercury transits Libra, from 07:51 to 19:12°. Mercury is closely conjunct Mars until November 15th. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies, and countries should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Capricorn, from 28:50 to 29:22°. Jupiter is in its debilitation sign until November 20th. Be patient with law, banking, religion, education, teaching, publishing and advisory roles.
Venus transits Sagittarius, from 07:30 to 13:51°. Venus is in good degrees, but is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor (landlord), Jupiter, which is in its debilitation sign. Be patient with the women in your life and with medicine, luxuries, entertainment, transportation and the fine, healing and performing arts.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 13:19 to 13:41°. Saturn is under the fourth aspect of Mars until November 18th. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies, and countries should be careful and patient.
Rahu and Ketu transit their exaltation signs, Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 07:34 to 07:36° (stationary in the seven-degree range until January 2nd). People, companies and countries with a rising sign between 4 to 10 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) also in these degrees, should be careful and patient.
The Impact of the Transit Planets for each “Rising Sign” (not “Sun Sign”)

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.
Special Notes: Sooner or later, the truth always surfaces… no matter how much Rahu tries to hide it. https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/05/politics/january-6-timeline-trump-coup/index.html
In the chart for Donald Trump the close influence of Rahu on Sun, ruling his chart, is seriously indicative of a deceptive and manipulative personality.
“…truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long; a man’s son may, but at the length truth will out.” William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice, 1596.
It may well be that Donald Trump will NOT be elected as president in 2024.
In his chart, the coming sub periods of Ketu, (October 2023) and Venus (September 2024) represent setbacks, disappointments, vulnerability, losses, expenses, separations, hospitalization, imprisonment, or even end of life.
(His birth chart clearly shows signs of heart issues, i.e., Sun and Moon, significators for the heart, are under the close affliction of Rahu and Ketu; while Sun, ruling his health, is also under the close affliction of the Most Malefic Planet, Moon.)
Then, the next two sub periods of Sun and Moon (May 2027 and March 2028) also show no sign of relief.
Additionally, the transits on November 5, 2024 may be challenging for his chart: His sub period ruler, Venus, (which is badly placed in the twelfth house in the natal chart), along with Jupiter (ruling his fifth house of mind and investments) will both be afflicted by Rahu and Ketu, while Mars (ruling fortune) and Sun (ruling his chart) will both be in their debilitation signs.
