Planetary Transits for November 30 – December 6

Case Study:

American actor, singer, songwriter, and musician, David Cassidy (9:55 a.m., April 12, 1950, New York, NY) had the Gemini rising sign with Sun in Pisces and Moon in Aquarius.

Sun in the 10th house gave leadership and a high position in life. Moon, Jupiter and Venus in the 9th house brought good fortune through his own self-efforts and relationships, and “dharma” connected with the public and entertainment. Mercury in the 11th house gave income through business and communications. Saturn in the 3rd house gave the ability to measure his words. Mars in the 4th house gave gains from parents and property.

Rahu and Ketu, however, afflicted 6 of his 12 houses, causing serious highs and lows — and unexpected calamities in life — relative to his family, health, finances, marriage, career and foreign lands.  These included several divorces, bankruptcy, alcoholism, and deathlike experiences.

WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:

Sun transits Scorpio, from 14:06 to 21:12°.  Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets until Dec. 4th.  This should be favorable for leaders, physicians, administrators, and governments. Sun is under the 5th aspect of Rahu, Dec. 4 – Dec. 12. This is not ideal for the above significations.

Moon is waxing/waning and transits Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini and into Cancer.  The full Moon is in its exaltation sign, Taurus, Dec. 3rd at 9:47 a.m. CST.

Mars transits Libra, from 00:07 to 04:33°. Mars is weak in degrees until Dec. 7th.  Be careful with property matters. Mars is also co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor (landlord), Venus, until Jan. 17th.

Mercury transits Sagittarius, from 04:28 to 03:48°. This connects stocks, business and communications, with law, religion, and education. Mercury is closely conjunct Saturn until Dec. 10th. Cancer, Virgo, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient.

Mercury is retrograde, Dec. 3 – 22. Contrary to popular belief, this is not an adverse effect for most people. The impact is primarily for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign, and only when Mercury is within 5 degrees of a person’s rising sign degree or another planet by aspect or conjunction.

Jupiter transits Libra, from 16:48 to 18:13°and is in good strength. 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 13-month transit of Jupiter in Libra provides a long-lived transformation.

Jupiter remains in Libra until October 11, 2018. Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces rising signs should be careful and patient as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 8th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively, which undermines the strength of Jupiter.

Venus transits Scorpio, from 04:28 to 13:16°. Scorpio represents research, mystical sciences, occult knowledge, vulnerability and transformations. Venus represents women, sexuality, entertainment and the fine, healing and performing arts.

Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 03:34 to 04:22°. Saturn is closely conjunct Mercury until Dec. 10th. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.

Saturn is weak in degrees until Dec. 12th.  Saturn now remain 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, from 23:40 to 22:46°.  Those persons with 21 to 24° rising sign degrees or with any planet in the 21 to 24°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces (including the USA) should be careful and patient.
