Planetary Transits for March 29 – April 4

Notes: Sun and Mercury are closely conjunct (this connects leaders and governments with business and communications) and are both under the 9th aspect of Rahu, (leaders and governments may have sudden and unfortunate issues).

Watch your heart, stomach, blood, bones and immune system. 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 14:20 to 21:15°.  Sun and Mercury are closely conjunct until April 4th. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient. Sun is under the 9th aspect of Rahu until April 6th. Leaders, physicians, administrators, and governments may have sudden and unfortunate issues. Watch your heart, stomach, blood, bones and immune system.
  • Moon is waxing/waning and transits Leo, Virgo, Libra, and into Scorpio. The full Moon is in Virgo, March 31st at 7:06 a.m. CDT.
  • Mars transits Sagittarius, from 12:23 to 16:14°.   Mars is closely conjunct Saturn until April 11th. This is an inflammatory conjunction and is not favorable for Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA).
  • Mercury transits its debilitation sign, Pisces, from 20:32 to 15:00°. Mercury is closely conjunct Sun until April 4th.  Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons should be careful and patient. 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.

LAST WEEK’S PREDICTION: “Be vigilant with stocks…”   (Dow Jones Lost 834 Points This Week.)

  • Mercury is retrograde until April 15. This is primarily only an issue for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons – and 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 28:29 to 27:59°. 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. This slow-moving transit of Jupiter in Libra (Sept. 2017–Oct. 2018) provides a long-lived transformation.
  • Venus transits Aries, from 03:25 to 12:03°. This connects women, luxuries, weather, transportation, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts with action, courage and competition. Venus is co-dependent on the strength of its landlord, Mars, until April 19th.
  • Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 14:43 to 14:54°. Saturn is closely conjunct Mars until April 11th. This is an inflammatory conjunction and is not favorable for Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA).
  • Saturn is weak due to the weakness of its landlord, Jupiter, until May 3rd. This may cause issues for working-class persons, the elderly, the poor and needy, and immigrants – and for those involved in 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 19:33 to 18:35°.  Those persons with 17 to 21° rising signs or with any planet(s) in the 17 to 21°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces — including the USA) should be careful and patient.
