Planetary Transits October 17 — October 23
(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Note: Jupiter is in its debilitation sign, Capricorn, until November 20th. This indicates weakness with law, banking, religion, morality, education, publishing, teaching and consulting.
Sun transits out of Virgo and into its debilitation sign, Libra, October 17 at 2:42 a.m. CDT. Sun remains debilitated until November 16. This is not ideal for presidents, physicians, administrators and governments. Be patient with father and authority figures. Watch your stomach, digestion, heart, blood, bones and immune system.
Moon is waxing/waning and transits Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, and into Taurus. The full Moon is in Aries, at 9:56 a.m. CDT on October 20.
Mars transits out of Virgo and into Libra, October 21 at 3:32 p.m. CDT. Mars is weak in degrees until October 29. The military, police, athletes, surgeons, and executives should get extra rest. Be patient with real estate and property matters.
Mercury transits Virgo, from 16:09 to 18:35°. Mercury is out of retrograde motion and is in its exaltation sign, in good strength. This should be favorable for stocks, finance, business, technology, communications and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits Capricorn, from 28:10 to 28:13°. Jupiter is in its debilitation sign under November 20. Be patient with law, banking, religion, education, teaching, and consulting.
Venus transits Scorpio from 16:21 to 23:41°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets and is in good strength. This should be favorable for women, luxuries, medicine, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts, etc.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn from 12:45 to 12:51°. Saturn moves away from the ninth aspect of Rahu, where it has been since mid-March. This should be an improvement for the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, working-class persons and immigrants. (Note the decline of Covid-19 cases and the announcement of a Social Security increase for the elderly.) Manufacturing, agriculture, and the oil, gas and minerals industries may also improve.
Rahu and Ketu transit their exaltation signs, Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 08:11 – 07:44°. People, companies and countries with a rising sign between 9 to 5 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) in these same degrees, should be careful and patient.
