(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
From last week: Mars is under the close ninth aspect of Ketu until July 6. There may be serious issues relative to sports, police, military, weather (heat waves) and property (condominium collapse) — including fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc.
Notes: Venus is coming under the influence of Mars, Saturn and Ketu. Take care of the women in your life and be patient with weather, luxuries, entertainment, transportation, and the fine, healing and performing arts.
There are two major factors contributing to disturbances worldwide. These include the stationary position of Rahu and Ketu in the 16-degree range (April 26 to July 12), and the close influence of Rahu on Saturn (March 15 – September 19). These prolonged influences are difficult for most everyone, everywhere.
Be especially vigilant during July and August, when Saturn is within two degrees or less from the ninth aspect of Rahu. (There may be continued issues relative to Covid-19, the masses, the elderly, immigrants, working class persons, agriculture and manufacturing.)
It is likely that life will improve by the end of September – other transits notwithstanding.
Sun transits Gemini, from 15:28 to 22:06°. This connects leaders and governments with finance, business and communications. (Bipartisan Infrastructure Proposal Under Consideration.) Sun is in good strength and outside of the orb or influence of other planets.
Moon is waning and transits Pisces, Aries, Taurus and into Gemini.
Mars transits its debilitation sign, Cancer, from 17:59 to 22:19°. Mars is under the close ninth aspect of Ketu until July 6. (See notes above.) Mars is also under the seventh aspect of Saturn until July 8. Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Mars is weak (in debilitation) until July 20. Be patient with the military, police, athletes, surgeons, executive decisions, and property matters.
Mercury transits out of Taurus and into Gemini, July 7 at 12:42 a.m. CDT. Mercury is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees until July 11th. Be patient with finance, business, technology, communications and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits Aquarius from 07:51 to 7:32°. Jupiter is retrograde until October 18. The adverse effects are primarily for Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons — and only when Jupiter is within five degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart.
Venus transits Cancer, from 10:43 to 19:11°. Venus is under the ninth aspect of Ketu, July 2 – July 10. Take care of the women in your life and be patient with the fine, healing and performing arts. Venus is under the seventh aspect of Saturn, July 3 – July 11. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Venus is closely conjunct Mars, July 4 – July 21. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 18:12 to 17:47°. Saturn is under the seventh aspect of Mars until July 8. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Saturn is in retrograde motion until October 10. The retrograde motion of Saturn is adverse primarily only for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons – and only when Saturn is within five degrees of their rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth chart or transit chart.
Saturn remains within three degrees of the ninth aspect of Rahu until September 19. Expect continued issues for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, working-class persons, agriculture and manufacturing (including the oil, gas, and minerals industries). Be especially vigilant during July and August when Saturn is even closer — within two degrees of Rahu.
Rahu and Ketu transit Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 16:13 to 16:18°. Rahu and Ketu remain stationary in the 16° range until July 12th. This is not ideal worldwide. Persons, companies and countries (such as India and Israel) with a rising sign between 15 and 17 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) in these same degrees, should exercise a great deal of care and patience.
