Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
Sun transits Taurus, from 18:41 to 25:23°. Sun starts to move away from Rahu. This should be an improvement for presidents, leaders, physicians, administrators and government officials.
Last weekʻs prediction: “Presidents, leaders, and government officials are vulnerable to sudden issues or an eclipse.” (A coalition of right and left-wing parties launch a campaign to remove Benjamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister of Israel.)
Moon is waning and transits Aquarius, Pisces, Aries and Taurus. We are still in the two-week period between the total lunar eclipse (May 26th) and the partial solar eclipse (June 10th). Annually, this period is not ideal. (Fires, Mass Shootings, Tornadoes, etc.)
Mars transits its debilitation sign, Cancer, from 00:42 to 05:00°. Mars is considered weak until July 20th. Be patient with the military, police, athletes, surgeons, executive decisions, and property matters.
Mercury transits Taurus, from 29:54 to 25:23°. Mercury is retrograde until June 22nd. The retrograde motion of Mercury is adverse primarily only for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons – but 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 or transit chart.
Jupiter transits Aquarius from 07:32 to 07:51°. Jupiter is in good strength and is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This may add protective covering worldwide and should be helpful for law, banking, religion, education, husbands and children — along with teaching, publishing and advisory roles.
Venus transits Gemini, from 06:38 to 15:11°. Venus is under the fifth aspect of Jupiter, until June 7th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 19:16 to 19:06°. 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 16:35 to 16:37°. 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 disturbances worldwide. These include the stationary position of Rahu and Ketu (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.
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 additional problems with Covid-19 or other viruses.)
With any luck, it is likely that by the end of September the world will be able to breathe a collective sigh of relief – other transits notwithstanding.
