Planetary Transits for October 2nd — October 8th
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Note: Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 19-degree range until Nov. 29th. As predicted last week, this prolonged and slow movement of Rahu and Ketu is seriously problematic, worldwide.

People, companies, and countries with rising signs between 17 and 21 degrees – or any planets between 17 and 21 degrees in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should be especially careful and patient. (Anybody can take a three-day fever, but it is quite difficult to take a three-month fever.)
Transits for this Week:
Sun transits Virgo, from 14:49 to 21:43°. Sun is closely conjunct Venus until November 9th. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Moon is waxing and transits Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
Mars transits Taurus, from 26:19 to 28:25°. Mars is weak in degrees until November 29th (same data as Rahu and Ketu). There may be issues for the police, military, athletes, surgeons, executives, engineers, and property matters.
Mercury transits its exaltation sign, Virgo, from 00:01 to 03:48°. Mercury is weak in degrees until October 10th. Be patient with stocks, business, technology, and communications.
Jupiter transits its own sign, Pisces, from 08:48 to 07:53°. 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.
Jupiter is in retrograde motion until November 23rd. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a problem in general. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA, Russia and Ukraine), however, 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 debilitation sign, from 09:25 to 18:09°. Venus is 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 24:46 to 24:34°. Saturn is in good strength degrees. There may be improvement for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons, along with manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
Saturn is in retrograde motion until October 23rd. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a problem for most people. The impact is primarily for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA and Russia) – and ONLY when Saturn is within five degrees of the rising sign degree, or any other planet, by aspect or conjunction.
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 19:41 to 19:21°. Rahu and Ketu are now stationary in the 19-degree range until November 29th. The prolonged slow movement of Rahu and Ketu is generally not ideal, worldwide. Additionally, people, companies, and countries with planets or rising signs between 17 and 21 degrees in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius should be especially careful and patient.
