Planetary Transits for March 22 – March 28

Notes: Sun is under the 4th aspect of Mars until April 3rd. This connects the government with police and military activities. Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Mercury is under the 9th aspect of Rahu until April 6th. Be vigilant with stocks, business, communications, health and computer viruses, and intellectual property.

WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:

  • Sun transits Pisces, from 07:24 to 14:20°.  Sun is under the 4th aspect of Mars until April 3rd.  This connects governments with police and military activities. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
  • Moon is waxing and transits Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and Leo.
  • Mars transits Sagittarius, from 08:27 to 12:23°.   Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets — but is weak on account of the weakness of its landlord, Jupiter. Be careful with property matters. The military, police, athletes, firefighters, and executives should get extra rest.
  • Mercury transits its debilitation sign, Pisces, from 22:45 to 20:32°. Mercury is under the 9th aspect of Rahu until April 6th. Be vigilant with stocks, business, communications and intellectual property, along with health and computer viruses. Mercury is retrograde March 22nd – April 15. This may be an issue primarily for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons – but only when Mercury is within 5 degrees of their rising sign degree in any house, or within 5 degrees of any planet in the natal or transit chart by aspect or conjunction.
  • Jupiter transits Libra, from 28:50 to 28:29°. Jupiter is weak in degrees until May 3rd.  This may cause delays or setbacks with law, banking, religion, and education.  Jupiter is retrograde until July 10th.
  • Jupiter represents law, religion, morality and education. Libra is ruled by Venus, representing women, sexuality, and the scales of justice. This combination supports the revelations regarding the sexual harassment of women, (including the allegations against President Trump). This slow-moving transit of Jupiter in Libra (Sept. 2017–Oct. 2018) provides a long-lived transformation.
  • Venus transits out of its exaltation sign, Pisces and into Aries, March 26th at 5:17 a.m. CDT. Venus is weak in degrees until March 30th. Take care of the women in your life and be careful with luxuries, weather, transportation and entertainment.
  • Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 14:27 to 14:43°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets — but is weak due to the weakness of its landlord, Jupiter, until May 3rd. This may cause issues with working-class persons, the elderly, and immigration – as well as for agriculture, manufacturing, and the oil, gas, and minerals industries.
  • Saturn remains in Sagittarius until Jan. 2020. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient as Saturn is transiting their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
  • Rahu and Ketu transit Cancer and Capricorn, respectively, from 19:40 to 19:33°.  Those persons with 18 to 21° rising signs or with any planet(s) in the 18 to 21°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces — including the USA) should be careful and patient.
