(Interpretations based on the Systemsʻ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Note: Rahu and Ketu are now stationary in the 7-degree range (October 19 – January 2.) Whenever they are slow-moving for a prolonged period of time, they cause serious issues worldwide. (Anyone can take a three-day fever, but it is difficult to take a three-month fever.)
This current transit may be especially challenging for those persons, companies and countries with a rising sign between 4 and 10 degrees, or with any planet(s) between 4 and 10 degrees in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces).
The best thing to do is to be careful and patient — and at all times. Get extra rest, watch your diet, focus on your spiritual practices, and stay in the (divine) present moment. Those who are strengthening their favorable planets with color or gemstone therapy, or with the mystical pendant (kavach) – and who are on a spiritual path and are doing the bhoota and deva yagyas (charities and chants) for their horoscopes will have a greater level of protection.
Sun transits Libra, from 6:50 to 13:49°. 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. Sun is under the 10th aspect of Saturn, October 25-November 4. Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
Moon is waning and transits Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and into Leo.
Mars transits Libra, from 01:34 to 6:15°. 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 18:36 to 27:04°. Mercury is under the 9th aspect of Jupiter, October 28-November 4. Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) are likely under stress.
Jupiter transits Capricorn, from 28:13 to 28:27°. Jupiter is in its debilitation sign until November 20. Be patient with law, banking, religion, education, teaching, and consulting.
Venus transits out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, October 30 at 4:40 a.m. CDT. Venus is weak in degree October 25-November 4. Take care of the women in your life and be patient with luxuries, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn from 12:51 to 13:03°. Saturn is finally outside 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. Manufacturing, agriculture, and the oil, gas and minerals industries may also get a lift now.
Rahu and Ketu transit their exaltation signs, Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, from 07:44 to 07:47°. People, companies and countries with a rising sign between 10 to 4 degrees — or with any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) in these same degrees, should be careful and patient.
