Planetary Transits January 16 – January 22
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Special note about 2022
Jupiter transits its own sign of Pisces for 12 months — April 13, 2022 — April 21, 2023.
This represents a positive lift worldwide, especially for Jupiter’s significations including law, justice, banking, religion, education, teaching, publishing, advisory roles, wisdom, morality, and divine grace.
This transit is helpful for Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn rising sign person, companies and countries (including USA); and is a rare “panchamahapurusha yoga” (Hamsa yoga), which blesses Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries – other transits notwithstanding. Leo, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should exercise care and patience.
Now that Jupiter’s transit in and out of its debilitation sign, Capricorn, for about 20 months is over – and now that Jupiter has regained strength (and is ruled by a strong Saturn in strong degrees — we are starting to see greater signs of the coming period of law and justice, which will most likely come to fruition when Jupiter is in its own sign of Pisces, mid-April 2022 to mid-April 2023.
Sun transits Capricorn, from 01:54 to 09:01°. Sun is under the ninth aspect of Rahu until Jan. 23rd. Presidents, leaders, physicians, administrators, and governments should be careful and patient. Serious issues are also likely with the stomach, digestion, heart, blood, bones, and immune system.
Moon is waxing/waning and transits Gemini, Cancer, Leo and into Virgo. The full Moon is in Cancer, Jan. 17th at 5:46 p.m. CST.

Mars transits out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, Jan. 16th at 5:00 a.m., CST. Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets but is weak in degrees until Jan. 29th. Be patient with the military, police, dentists, surgeons, athletes, builders, executives, architects, fire fighters and property matters.
Mercury transits Capricorn, from 15:52 to: 09:22°. Mercury is in good degrees. This should be favorable for stocks, writing, business, brokering, finance, technology, communications, and intellectual property.
Mercury is retrograde until Feb. 3rd. Retrograde planets have adverse effects only when they are functional malefic planets for a rising sign– and only when they are within five degrees of the rising sign degree or another planet by aspect or conjunction in any house. In this case, Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising signs may be vulnerable from time to time.
Jupiter transits Aquarius, from 09:31 to 11:03°. This should be favorable for law, banking, religion, education, teaching, publishing, and advisory roles. Jupiter is in Aquarius until April 13th.
Venus is in retrograde motion and transits Sagittarius, from 20:23 to 17:41°. This should be favorable for women, medicine, luxuries, entertainment, transportation and the fine, healing and performing arts.
Venus is retrograde until January 29th. Retrograde planets have adverse effects only when they are functional malefic planets for a rising sign– and only when they are within five degrees of the rising sign degree or another planet by aspect or conjunction in any house. In this case, Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising signs may be vulnerable from time to time.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 19:27 to 20:16°. This should be favorable for the masses, the elderly, immigrants, and working-class persons – along with manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas, and minerals industries.
Rahu and Ketu transit their exaltation signs Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 06:14 to 05:07°. People, companies, and countries with a rising sign between 4 to 7 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces) also in these degrees, should be careful and patient. (Including USA.)
