Planetary Transits for November 15 – November 21

Notes: Transit Rahu (sudden calamities) was exactly afflicting transit Jupiter (college students) during the recent Thousand Oaks Shooting.
Jupiter remains under the 5th aspect of Rahu until Nov. 22nd. There may continue to be issues for children and husbands, and for those with a weak hip, liver or gall bladder. Law, religion, morality, education and journalism are also vulnerable. (President Trump Confiscates CNN Reporter’s Press Badge.)
In the Leo chart for President Trump, this may also indicate sudden issues relative to his children, investments or legal situation. (Maryland Files Lawsuit Over Constitutionality of Acting Attorney General Appointment.)
WHERE THE VEDIC ASTROLOGY PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:

Sun transits out of its debilitation sign, Libra, and into Scorpio, Nov. 16th at 8:02 a.m. CST. Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius rising sign persons should get extra rest as Sun is in their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses until Dec. 15th. Sun is weak in degrees until Nov. 21st. Leaders, physicians, administrators and government officials should get extra rest.

Moon is waxing and transits Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries.

Mars transits Aquarius from 05:28 to 09:48°. Consider inventive, unconventional and humanitarian property matters.

Mercury transits Scorpio, from 19:08 to 17:07°. This connects stocks, business, technology and communications with research, language, mystical sciences and ancient knowledge. Mercury is retrograde Nov. 16 – Dec. 6.

Jupiter transits Scorpio, from 07:22 to 08:55°. Jupiter is under the 5th aspect of Rahu until Nov. 22nd. Watch your liver, gall bladder and hips, and protect your children and husbands. There may continue to be sudden issues with law, religion, morality, education, (including students and teachers) legal, publishing, advisory and consulting roles.

Venus transits its own sign, Libra, from 01:09 to 01:46°. Venus comes out of retrograde on November 16th – but is weak in degrees until Nov. 30th. Venus remains in Libra until Jan. 1st. This should be favorable for law, women, romance, luxuries, medicine, education, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts.

Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 12:05 to 12:47°. Saturn is outside the close 5-degree orb of influence of other planets. This connects law, religion and education with the elderly, the poor and needy, immigrants, (caravans) and working-class persons.

Rahu and Ketu transit Cancer and Capricorn, respectively, from 05:03 to 04:22°. Those persons with 3 to 6° rising signs or with any planet(s) in the 3 to 6°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces — including the USA) should be careful and patient.
