Planetary Transits for January 26 – February 1

The first part of this newsletter describes the position of the (Vedic astrology) planets this week.

The second part describes the impact of the transit planets for each rising sign.

 

Note 1:

Mars is in Pisces through Feb.

Venus is also in Pisces (for an unusually long time) Jan 27 – May 30.

Saturn is in Sagittarius until June 20th.

See the rising sign descriptions below for their likely impact.

 

Note 2:

President Trump is likely to face stress relative to debts, disputes, health and legal issues until Feb. 12th — as Sun (ruling his chart) transits the unfavorable 6th house. He is also likely to encounter delays, setbacks and serious issues until March 3rd — as Mars transits his unfavorable 8th house.

 

Last week’s prediction: “President-elect Donald Trump is likely to face stress relative to…disputes…and legal issues…”

 

(News media disputes President Trump’s claims that he had largest crowd of any inauguration — and that millions of people voted illegally. A lawsuit was also filed against him for allegedly violating a constitutional ban.)

 

 

WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:

 

Sun transits Capricorn, from 12:22 to 19:29°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This connects leaders, physicians, administrators and governments with working-class persons, immigrants, the elderly and the poor and needy.  Watch for news about Social Security, Medicare, Immigration, etc.

 

Moon is waning/waxing and transits Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and into Pisces.

 

Mars transits Pisces, from 04:25 to 09:38°. Mars is outside the influence of other planets. This may be helpful to the military, (including “commanders-in-chief”) police, athletes, surgeons, executives and firefighters; along with property matters.

 

Mercury transits Sagittarius, from 19:09 to 28:28°.   This connects business and communications with law, banking, religion and education. This should be helpful for stocks, business, brokering, communications and intellectual property.

 

Last Week’s Prediction: “This should be helpful for stocks…” (Dow Reaches 20,000 for First Time Ever.)

 

Jupiter transits Virgo, from 28:51 to 29:01°.  Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in old-age degrees and is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor (landlord) Mercury. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should be careful and patient for the next 8 months as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.

 

Venus transits out of Aquarius and into its exaltation sign, Pisces, on Jan. 27 at 8:47 a.m., CST. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees untilFeb. 2. Be patient with women, romance, luxuries, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts. Venus remains in Pisces for 17+ weeks, until May 30th.  This is not ideal for Aries, Leo, and Libra rising sign persons, companies, and countries, as Venus is transiting their 12th, 8th, and 6th houses, respectively.

 

Saturn transits out of Scorpio, (where it has been since Nov. 2, 2014) and into Sagittarius, Jan. 26 at 8:00 a.m. CST.  Saturn remains in Sagittarius until June 20, when it moves back into Scorpio – where it will remain until Oct. 26. During this time, Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient as Saturn will be in their 8th, 6th, and 12th houses, respectively. This can also cause adverse effects for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) whenever Saturn is within 5° of their rising sign degree or any planet, by aspect or conjunction.

 

Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 9:27 to 9:22°.  Those persons, companies or countries with 8 – 10° rising signs or with any planet at 8 – 10° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be careful and patient – and, at all time.

 

Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 9-degree range, Jan. 11 to March 17.   This is (absolutely) not ideal for persons, companies or countries with 8 – 10° rising signs or with any planet at 8 – 10° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius).  These persons should exercise care and patience, and at all time. Get extra rest and meditation, watch your diet, drink plenty of water, exercise in moderation, and avoid stressful situations.

 

Planetary remedies add protective covering to one’s life: strengthen your functional benefic planets (with color and gemstone therapy and/or the mystical pendant known as the kavach: http://www.planetarysara.com/product/mystical-pendant/) and do “Bhoota and Deva Yagyas” (charities and chants) for the planets that can cause adverse effects.
