WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Cancer, from 04:46 to 11:27°. Sun is outside of the orb of influence of other planets, but is co-dependent on the strength of its landlord (dispositor), the fast-moving Moon, which is frequently weak on account of transit influences.
Moon transits Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries. Moon, in Aquarius, is conjunct Ketu from the evening of July 22 to the early morning of July 23. Watch your emotional state and be careful in public venues.
Mars transits Scorpio, 01:53 to 03:57°. 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.
Mercury transits out of Cancer and into Leo, July 26 at 7:40 p.m. Mercury is weak in degrees July 24 – 29. Be patient with stocks, writing, business, technology and communications.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 26:04 to 27:17°. Jupiter is now outside the orb of influence of Rahu and other planets, but is weak in degrees until Sept. 5. This is not as severe as the recent conjunction with Rahu, but there is still weakness with regard to law, religion, banking and education, along with children, students, educators, politicians, and religious leaders.
Venus transits Cancer, from 16:56 to 25:32°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is co-dependent on the strength of its landlord (dispositor), the fast-moving Moon, which is frequently weak on account of transit influences.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 16:07 to 15:54°. 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.
Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 19:18 to 19:16°. 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: http://www.planetarysara.com/product/mystical-pendant/) and do “Bhoota and Deva Yagyas” (charities and chants) for the planets causing adverse effects.
