Planetary Transits for July 13 – July 19

Note 1:  Sun is closely conjunct Mars until August 9th. This connects governments with fire, police, military and property matters. Rahu and Ketu remain stationary until Sept. 8th. This causes stress worldwide.

Note 2: Donald Trump is facing 3 planets in his 12th house – Mercury, Sun, and Mars – until July 21,Aug. 16, and Aug. 26, respectively. This is the house of losses, expenses, prisons, hospitals, and separations. Additionally, transit Saturn, ruling relationships and foreign lands, is afflicted by his natal Rahu and Ketu, and his most malefic planet, Moon, (June 1st to November 1st). Taken together, these transits may bring stressful events for Mr. Trump.

WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:

Sun transits out of Gemini and into Cancer, July 16 at 4:55 a.m., CDT. Sun is weak in degrees untilJuly 21st. Leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators, and governments should get extra rest. Sun is closely conjunct Mars until August 9th. This connects leaders and governments with fire, police and military activities and property matters. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons should be careful and patient as Mars rules their 12th, 8th, and 6th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.

Moon is waning and transits Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, and into Taurus.

Mars transits its debilitation sign, Cancer, from 01:10 to 05:42°. Mars is closely conjunct the Sun until August 9th. Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces rising sign persons should be careful and patient, as Sun rules their 12th, 8th, and 6th (inauspicious) houses, respectively. Mars is debilitated until August 26th. This is not ideal for the police, military, athletes, surgeons, construction, engineering, property matters, et al. (Note the K-130 plane crash that killed 16 military personnel.)

Mercury transits Cancer, from 18:17 to 28:40°.  This connects stocks, business, technology, communications and intellectual property with the public. Mercury is outside of the orb of influence of other planets, which should be favorable for the above-listed significations.

Jupiter transits Virgo, from 20:44 to 21:27°.  Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful for law, religion and education. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons, however, should be careful and patient as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively – until September 11th.

Venus transits its own sign, Taurus, from 14:58 to 22:51°. This should be helpful for women, luxuries, romance, entertainment, medicine, and transportation, etc. Venus is under the 9th aspect of Jupiter until July 23rd. Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn rising sign persons should be careful and patient as Jupiter rules their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.

Saturn transits Scorpio, from 28:29 to 28:05°.  Saturn is in retrograde motion until Aug. 25th. The adverse effects are primarily for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising signs – but only when Saturn is within 5 degrees of the person’s rising sign degree, or another planet by conjunction or aspect.

Saturn remains in Scorpio until October 26th. Aries, Gemini, and Sagittarius rising sign persons should be careful and patient as Saturn will be in their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.

Saturn is under the 5th aspect of Rahu until Nov. 6 and is weak in degrees until Dec. 12th.  This is not helpful for the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons.  Expect issues relative to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, as well as for immigration, agriculture, manufacturing, health care, the environment, and the oil, gas and minerals industries.

In the SAMVA chart/horoscope* for USA, this Saturn transit causes serious issues relative to debts, setbacks, accidents, health and legal issues and even deathlike experiences for the entire country – through October. Be vigilant, take care of your family, and avoid stressful people and situations.  *Systems’ Approach to Mundane Astrology.

Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 00:23 to 00:20°.  Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the 0°range until September 8th.  Those persons, companies or countries with 0 – 2° rising signs or with any planet at 0 – 2° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be careful and patient. Additionally, those persons, companies or countries with 28 to 30° rising signs or with any planet in the 28 to 30 to 28°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces (including USA) should also be careful and patient.

Whenever Rahu and Ketu are stationary for 3 months, the difficulties intensify. The 1st month the person says, “something is wrong”. The 2nd month the person says, “something is seriously wrong.” The 3rd month, the person seeks legal, medical, financial, spiritual, astrological or psychological help. Those doing the planetary remedies for their horoscopes will have smoother sailing.
