(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
Sun transits out of Taurus and into Gemini, June 14th at 7:41 p.m. CDT. Sun is weak in degrees until June 20th. Presidents, leaders, physicians, administrators and government officials should get extra rest. Sun is closely conjunct Mercury until June 14th. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Moon is waxing and transits Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and Leo. The new Moon is in Taurus, June 10th.
Mercury transits Taurus, from 26:40 to 23:07°. Mercury is closely conjunct Sun until June 14th. Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Mercury is retrograde until June 22nd. The retrograde motion of Mercury is adverse primarily only for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons – and only when Mercury 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.
Jupiter transits Aquarius from 07:51 to 08:00°. Jupiter is under the eighth aspect of Mars until June 23rd. This connects law, religion and education with the military, police, athletes, executives, engineering and property matters. (There may be explosive matters relative to these significations.) Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries (including India) should be careful and patient.
Venus transits Gemini, from 15:11 to 23:43 °. Venus is in good strength and is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be favorable for women, fashion, medicine, luxuries, design, advertising, photography, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 19:06 to 18:52°. Saturn remains within three degrees of the ninth aspect of Rahu until September 19th. There may be continued issues for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, working-class persons, agriculture and manufacturing (including oil, gas, and minerals industries). Be especially vigilant during July and August when Saturn is even closer — within two degrees of the ninth aspect of Rahu.
Rahu and Ketu transit Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 16:37 to 16:9°. 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.
Notes: There are two major factors contributing to recent 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.
Take care of your family, exercise patience, and focus on your religious/spiritual practices. Be especially vigilant during July and August, when Saturn is two degrees or less from the ninth aspect of Saturn. (There may be more problems with Covid-19 and/or other viruses.)
With any luck, however, it is likely that by the end of September the world will be able to breathe a collective sigh of relief – other transits notwithstanding.
