Planetary Transits for September 27 – October 3

Note 1: The close conjunction of Mars and Ketu (since late May) – along with the stationary position of Rahu and Ketu (since late June) — has contributed to fires, floods, tornadoes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, and earthquakes, and social/political discord. Be especially vigilant until Sept. 30th, as Mars and Ketu are currently in extreme close conjunction. The impact clears by Oct. 6th.

Note 2: Transit Venus is now in its own sign of Libra until Jan. 1st. This is a rare and slow-moving favorable transitfor women, romance, luxuries, medicine, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts.

WHERE THE VEDIC ASTROLOGY PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:

  • Sun transits Virgo, from 09:55 to 16:48°. This connects the government with business, technology, communications and intellectual property.
  • Moon is waning and transits Aries, Taurus, Gemini and into Cancer.
  • Mars transits its exaltation sign, Capricorn, from 10:24 to 13:07°. Mars remains close to Ketu (the southern node of the Moon) for one more week.  This begins to wind down the stress experienced worldwide over the past 4 months — relative to fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, weather and property matters, along with social and political discord.
  • Mercury transits its exaltation sign, Virgo, from 14:51 to 26:37°. This should be good for stocks, business, technology, communications, and intellectual property.
  • Jupiter transits Libra, from 27:15 to 28:13°. Jupiter, in Libra, is ruled by Venus. This connects law, religion, morality and education with sexuality and the “scales” of justice. This transit brings to light the sexual harassment of women and children. This slow-moving transit (Sept. 11, 2017 — Oct. 11, 2018) may well provide a long-lived societal transformation.

Note: Over the past year more than 200 prominent men — CEOs, celebrities, politicians, et al. — have been the subject of sexual harassment or assault allegations — www.vox.com.

  • Venus transits its own sign, Libra, from 15:22 to 16:40°.   Venus now has an unusually long duration in Libra (Sept. 1st – Jan. 1st).  This should be favorable for law, women, romance, luxuries, medicine, education, entertainment, and the fine, healing and performing arts. This may also indicate victories for women in court and in the mid-term elections.
  • Saturn transits Sagittarius, from 08:46 to 09:02°. Saturn is outside the close 5-degree orb of influence of other planets. This connects law, education and religious values with the elderly, poor and needy, and working-class persons.
  • Rahu and Ketu transit Cancer and Capricorn, respectively, from 10:37 to 09:52°.  Those persons with 8 to 11° rising signs or with any planet(s) in the 8 to 11°range in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn or Pisces — including the USA) should be especially careful and patient.
