Planetary Transits for March 10 – March 16

Note:  We are now in the 2-week period between the total solar eclipse (March 8) and the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse (during the full Moon on March 23). Typically, unusual and unkind events take place during this period of time. Get extra rest and take care of your loved ones. Be vigilant in crowds and exercise care and patience.
Sun transits out of Aquarius and into Pisces, March 14 at 12:47 a.m. CDT. Sun is closely conjunct Ketu until March 16.  This is absolutely not ideal for leaders, presidents, governments, administrators, physicians, gold, etc. Those with a weak heart, stomach, or digestion are vulnerable.
Moon is waxing and transits Pisces, Aries, Taurus and into Gemini. The full Moon and Penumbral Lunar Eclipse takes place on March 23 at 7:00 a.m. CDT.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 07:23 to 09:39°.   Mars is in good strength and outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful for the significations of Mars, such as property, military, police, sports, engineering, etc.
Mars remains in Scorpio until June 18 — and then again from July 12 to Sept. 17. This prolonged stay in Scorpio is not ideal for Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius rising sign persons, companies and countries. These rising sign persons can safely wear a red coral gemstone (ring or pendant), which should be put on at an auspicious date/time to strengthen Mars.
Mercury transits Aquarius, from 14:05 to 26:45°.  Mercury comes under the influence of both Jupiter and Ketu this week. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 23:59 to 23:05°. Jupiter is moving away from the close conjunction with Rahu where it has been since Dec. This should improve issues with law, religion, banking, teachers, students, publishers, counselors, and husbands and children. Jupiter is retrograde until May 9.
Venus transits Aquarius, from 03:13 to 11:52°. Venus is under the 4th aspect of Mars until March 19. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 22:07 to 22:16°.  Saturn is in good strength, which should be good for agriculture, manufacturing and working-class persons. This may also explain the over-abundance/production of oil.
Rahu and Ketu are now stationary at 27° until April 23rd.   This is absolutely not ideal for those persons, companies or countries with 27° rising signs or with any planet at 27° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius). The impact intensifies weekly. Planetary remedies add protective covering: strengthen your benefic planets and do charities for afflicted persons and spiritual organizations.
