(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Notes: The recent “fire in the ocean”, caused by the burst oil pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico, was likely due to the influence of Mars (fire) and Rahu (calamities) on Saturn (oil).
Haiti’s President Jovenel Moise was killed at the exact time when Rahu and Ketu were afflicting Moon and six of the twelve houses in the chart for the location of Port-au-Prince. Rahu was also afflicting Saturn (leader of the masses) and Ketu was afflicting Venus, (representing his wife, who was also seriously wounded).
There have been two major planetary influences contributing to the recent disturbances worldwide. These include the stationary position of Rahu and Ketu in the 16-degree range (April 26 to July 12) – which is now starting to separate — 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, August, and September, as Saturn remains 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 things will improve by the end of September – other transits notwithstanding.
Sun transits Gemini, from 22:06 to 28:47°. This connects leaders and governments with finance, business and communications. Sun is outside the orb of other planets.
Moon is waning/waxing and transits Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and into Virgo. The new Moon is in Gemini, July 9.
Mars transits its debilitation sign, Cancer, from 22:19 to 26:40°. Mars moves away from the influence of Saturn and Ketu. Mars is closely conjunct Venus until July 20. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Mars remains weak (in debilitation) until July 20. Be patient with the military, police, athletes, surgeons, executive decisions, and property matters.
Mercury transits Gemini, from 01:06 to 10:58°. This should be favorable for finance, business, technology, communications and intellectual property. Mercury is under the fifth aspect of Jupiter until July 15. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Aquarius from 7:32 to 07:04°. 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 19:11 to 27:38°. Venus begins to move away from the influence Ketu and Saturn, which should be helpful for women and the arts, etc. Venus is closely conjunct Mars until July 20. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 17:47 to 17:20°. 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).
Rahu and Ketu transit Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 16:18 to 15:40°. Rahu and Ketu begin to move away from their stationary positions in the 16° range until July 12th. This should be helpful, but continue to exercise patience through July. People, companies and countries with a rising sign between 13 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.
