Planetary Transits for October 23rd – October 29th
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Notes: There is a Partial Solar Eclipse on October 25th, which will be visible in Europe, northern Africa, the Middle East, and western parts of Asia.
For USA, this takes place between 4:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. CDT. This eclipse will be followed in two weeks (Nov. 7) by a total lunar eclipse, (Blood Moon), which is visible from Asia, Australia, North America, parts of northern and eastern Europe, and South America.
It is generally noticed that the two weeks between the eclipses is a time of stress. Be alert and patient with negative persons and situations.
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. 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 05:35 to 12:34°. Leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and governments should get extra rest. Sun remains closely conjunct Venus until November 9th. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Moon is waning/waxing and transits Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius. The new Moon is in Libra, Oct. 25th. Moon, in Scorpio, is debilitated Oct. 27 – 28. Be vigilant in crowds and around volatile persons.
Mars transits Gemini, from 01:03 to 01:26°. Mars is weak in degrees until November 29th. There may be issues for the police, military, athletes, surgeons, executives, engineers, and property matters.
Mercury transits out of its exaltation sign, Virgo, and into Libra, Oct. 26th. Mercury is weak in degrees until Oct. 29th. Be patient with stocks, business, technology, and communications.
Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces, from 06:17 to 05:39°. Jupiter is in excellent strength. This should be 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 its own sign, Libra, from 05:40 to 14:26°. This should be favorable for women, romance, beauty, luxuries, entertainment, and the fine, healing or performing arts. This is a (favorable) panchamaha purusha yoga (Malavya Yoga) for Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn rising signs. Venus remains closely conjunct Sun until November 9th. Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits Capricorn, from 24:24 to 24:27°. Saturn is in good strength degrees. This may 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.
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 19:14 to 19:13°. 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.
