Important (Positive) Comment about 2022
Jupiter transits its own sign of Pisces for 12 months — April 13, 2002 — April 21, 2023.
This may well be a major lift worldwide, especially for Jupiter’s particular significations, such as *law, *justice, banking, religion, education, teaching, publishing, advisory roles, wisdom, morality, and divine grace.
*”Truth, crushed to earth, shall rise again…” — William Cullen Bryant
This transit of Jupiter is especially favorable 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.
Sun transits out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, Jan. 14th at 2:59 a.m. CST. Sun is weak in degrees until Jan. 18th. Presidents, leaders, physicians, administrators, and governments should get extra rest.
Moon is waxing and transits Pisces, Aries, Taurus, and into Gemini.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 24:49 to 29:50°. 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 13:49 to 15:52°. Mercury is in good degrees. This should be favorable for stocks, writing, business, brokering, finance, technology, communications, and intellectual property. Mercury is retrograde from January 14th, 2022-February 3rd, 2022.
Jupiter transits Aquarius, from 08:02 to 09:31°. This should be favorable for with 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 24:25 to 20:23°. 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 18:39 to 19:27°. 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 06:22 to 06:14°. People, companies, and countries with a rising sign between 4 to 8 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.)

Excerpt of the Week:
“Empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart be at peace. Watch the turmoil of beings, but contemplate their return. Each separate being in the universe returns to the common source. Returning to the Source is serenity. If you don’t realize the Source, you stumble in confusion and sorrow. When you realize where you come from, you naturally become tolerant, disinterested, amused, kindhearted as a grandmother, dignified as a King. Immersed in the wonder of the Tao, you can deal with whatever life brings you, and when death comes, you are ready.” – the Tao Te Ching
