Note: 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 for afflicted persons and spiritual organizations.
Chart of the Week: Governor Jeb Bush (Feb. 11, 1953, 6:30 p.m. *, Midland, TX) has the Capricorn rising sign, with Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Sagittarius. Sun in the 1st house confers a government position. Moon in the 12th house connects marriage with foreign lands. Mars and Venus in the 3rd house support independent ventures. Mercury in the 2nd house gives wealth and status through his father. Jupiter in the fourth house supports his older brother’s success. Saturn in the 10th house is exalted and connects wealth, status and family life with his professional life and leading the masses. He withdrew from the presidential race when transit 8th ruler, Sun, was afflicting his natal Mercury, ruling the 9th house of good fortune, while transit 12th ruler, Jupiter, in close conjunction with Rahu — both operating out of the 8th house of setbacks — were afflicting his natal Moon, ruling relationships and public favor. *Estimated birth time.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Aquarius, from 11:58 to 19:00°. 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 waning and transits Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and into Sagittarius. Moon, in Scorpio, is debilitated, Feb. 29 – March 1. Be careful with your emotional state, and be vigilant around other people and in large crowds.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 02:02 to 04:50°. Mars is weak in degrees until March 3. 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 out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, March 1, at 12:42 p.m., CST. Mercury is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn until Feb. 28. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 25:47 to 24:54°. Jupiter is finally starting to move away from the close conjunction with Rahu where it has been since mid-Dec. Continue to exercise patience for another week, but we should start to see some relief with law, religion, banking, teachers, students, publishers, counselors, and husbands and children; and for those with diabetes or a weak hip, liver or gall bladder.
Venus transits Capricorn, from 15:53 to 24:33°. Venus is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn until March 4. Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 21:37 to 21:54°. 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 27° rising signs or with any planet at 27° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be especially careful and patient and at all times.
