(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
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 spiritual practices.
It is likely that by mid-September the world will be able to breathe a collective sigh of relief – other transits notwithstanding.
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
Sun transits Taurus, from 11:58 to 18:41°. Sun is closely conjunct Rahu until June 5th. Presidents, leaders, physicians, administrators and government officials are vulnerable to sudden issues or an eclipse.
Moon is waning and transits Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius. This is the two-week period between the total lunar eclipse (May 26th) and the partial solar eclipse (June 10th). Annually, this period is not ideal — so lay low and get extra rest.
Mars transits out of Gemini and into its debilitation sign, Cancer, on June 1st at 8:22 p.m., CDT. Mars is considered weak until July 20th. Be patient with the military, police, athletes, surgeons, executives, and property matters.
Mercury transits out of Gemini, and back into Taurus, June 2nd at 4:05 p.m. CDT. Mercury is closely conjunct Venus this week. Taurus, Scorpio 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 signs – and only when it is within five degrees of the rising sign degree or another planet by aspect or conjunction, in either the birth or transit chart.
Jupiter transits Aquarius from 07:05 to 07:32°. 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, and education — along with teaching, publishing and advisory roles.
Venus transits out of its own sign, Taurus, and into Gemini, May 28th at 1:31 p.m. Venus is closely conjunct Mercury through June 1st. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Venus is under the fifth aspect of Jupiter, until June 7th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should also be careful and patient.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 19:21 to 19:16°. 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 16:34 to 16:35°. 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.
