Chart of the Week: Antonin Scalia, Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court (March 11, 1936, 8:55 p.m., Trenton,
NJ) had the Libra rising sign with Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Libra. In addition to being an “air sign” (Libra) he also had Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in air signs; representing supreme (court) intelligence.
Moon in the 1st house gave public favor and a royal career. Jupiter and Rahu in the 3rd house gave ambition and independence. Sun, Saturn, Mercury and Venus in the 5th house gave higher education, a complex mind, and (9) children. Mars in the 6th house gave conflicts in relationships. The weak Sun and Jupiter denied him siblings.
He was in the Venus main and Rahu sub periods when he died. Venus is weak in his chart and the transit of Rahu closely afflicted Jupiter, ruling law, and Sun, ruling the heart (so I think heart attack is the most likely cause of death.)
Note: Transit Jupiter and Rahu are in close conjunction until March 10. Additionally, Rahu and Ketu are 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 and chants/prayers for the planets causing adverse effects.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Aquarius from 04:55 to 11:58°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets and is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor (landlord), Saturn, until March 14. Saturn is in good strength, which should help support the significations of the Sun, such as the leaders, physicians, administrators and governments.
Moon is waxing and transits Gemini, Cancer, Leo and into Virgo. The full Moon is in Leo, Feb. 22 at 12:19 p.m.
Mars transits out of Libra and into Scorpio, Feb. 20 at 5:12 a.m. Mars is weak in degrees until March 3. Mars is under the 9th aspect of Ketu until Feb. 26. This is generally indicates war, fires, explosions, violence, earthquakes, tornadoes, (etc., along with issues for athletes, realtors, engineers, surgeons, contractors, and executives).
Cases in point: Explosion Kills 28 in Ankara, Turkey; 18 Tornadoes in USA Reported Over Past 48 Hours; Magnitude 5.1 Earthquake Rattles Northwest Oklahoma.
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 wear a red coral gemstone ring or pendant (put on during an auspicious date/time) to strengthen Mars.
Mercury transits Capricorn, from 11:31 to 21:29°. Mercury is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn, Feb. 22 – 28. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 26:37 to 25:47°. Jupiter is weak in degrees and CLOSELY CONJUNCT RAHU until March 10. There can be serious and unexpected issues with law, religion, banking, teachers, students, publishers, counselors, and husbands and children; and health problems for those with diabetes or a weak hip, liver or gall bladder. Case in point: “U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Found Dead”.
Aries, Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Aquarius rising sign persons CAN wear a yellow sapphire gemstone. Virgo and Pisces rising sign person SHOULD wear a yellow sapphire gemstone. Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons should help religious persons, teachers, students and children (with food, clothing, service or donations) on Thursdays. Optionally, they can also do prayers or listen to spiritual chants on Thursdays.
Venus transits Capricorn, from 07:14 to 15:53°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be good for women, luxuries, creativity, and transportation.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 21:14 to 21:37°. 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 transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, and now remain stationary at 27° until April 23rd. Those persons with 26-28° rising signs or with any planet at 26-28° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be especially careful and patient and at all times.
