WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits out of Gemini and into Cancer, July 15 at 10:44 p.m. CDT. Sun is outside of the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees until July 21. Leaders and governments should get extra rest.
Moon is waxing and transits Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn. The full Moon is in Capricorn, July 19 at 4:57 p.m., CDT. For Hindus, the full Moon in July is known as Guru Purnima. Traditionally this day is reserved for Guru Puja, a day to pay respect to your Guru or spiritual guide. It is also celebrated by Buddhists in the honor of Buddha.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 00:19 to 01:53°. Mars is weak in degrees until the end of July. This may continue issues for the police, military, athletes, executives, firefighters and property matters. Mars remains in Scorpio until Sept. 17. This prolonged transit in Scorpio is not ideal for Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius rising sign persons, companies and countries, as Mars is transiting their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively. These rising sign persons can safely wear a red coral gemstone (ring or pendant) to strengthen Mars.
Last week’s prediction: “This may continue issues for the police…”. (Police Officers Targeted and Killed in Dallas; Police Officers Involved in Fatal Shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.)
Mercury transits Cancer, from 06:16 to 19:47°. Mercury is closely conjunct Venus until July 24. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 24:55 to 26:04°. Jupiter, (the planet of luck, knowledge and divine grace) is now moving away from the severe conjunction of Rahu. This transit conjunction has been challenging since May 21for law, religion, banking and education and caused issues for same, along with children, students, educators, politicians, and religious leaders.
Venus transits Cancer, from 08:20 to 16:56°. Venus is closely conjunct Mercury until July 24. Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 16:24 to 16:07°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which is helpful for the elderly, the poor and needy, and working-class persons, along with manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas and mineral industries.
Saturn is retrograde until August 13, which is challenging for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA) whenever Saturn is within 5° of their rising sign degree or another planet by aspect or conjunction. (Contrary to popular belief, no other rising signs will have the so-called dreaded “Sade Sati”.)
Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 20:06 to 19:18°. Those persons, companies or countries with 18 – 20° rising signs or with any planet at 18 – 20° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should remain careful and patient. Planetary remedies add protective covering to one’s life: strengthen your functional benefic planets (with color and gemstone therapy and/or the mystical pendant known as the kavach: www.astroview.com/mystical_
