(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Notes: Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 7-degree range (Oct. 19th – Jan. 2nd). Whenever Rahu and Ketu are slow-moving for a prolonged period of time, they can cause serious issues worldwide.
This transit may be challenging for those persons, companies and countries with a rising sign between 4 and 10 degrees, or with any planet(s) in the same degrees in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces).
In the horoscope for the U.S., Rahu is exactly on top of Moon, ruling the chart. This may be dangerous and could indicate sudden disasters and/or another wave of the Covid-19 virus. This impact is through January.
Ketu is also close to Jupiter, ruling the countryʻs sixth house of debts, disputes, health and legal issues. This impact is through February.
This may be another challenging time for the country. Take care of your family, focus on your spiritual practices, and exercise care and patience – and at all times.
Sun transits out of its debilitation sign, Libra, and into Scorpio, November 16th at 1:33 a.m. Sun is weak in degrees until November 21st. Sun is closely conjunct Ketu, November 18 – 28. Presidents, physicians, administrators and governments should exercise care and patience.
Moon is waxing and transits Pisces, Aries, and Taurus. The full Moon is in Taurus, November 19th at 2:57 p.m. CST.
Mars transits Libra, from 15:44 to 20:30°. Mars is under the tenth aspect of Saturn until November 19th. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.
Mercury transits out of Libra and into Scorpio, November 20th. Mercury is weak in degrees until November 23rd. Be patient with stocks, business, finance, technology and communications.

Venus transits Sagittarius, from 13:51 to 19:36°. Venus is in good degrees, but is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor (landlord), Jupiter, which is weak. Be patient with the women in your life and with medicine, luxuries, entertainment, the weather, transportation and the fine, healing and performing arts.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 13:41 to 14:06°. Saturn is under the fourth aspect of Mars until November 19th. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies, and countries should be careful and patient.
Rahu and Ketu transit their exaltation signs, Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 07:36 to 07:32° (stationary in the seven-degree range until January 2nd). People, companies and countries with a rising sign between 4 to 10 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) also in these degrees, should be careful and patient. (Including USA.)
