Note: The close conjunction of Jupiter and Rahu is stressful worldwide for the month of June. This causes issues with addictions, immorality and the norms of society. Those who are vulnerable include children, husbands, students, teachers, bankers, lawyers, religious leaders, et al. We have also seen fires, heat waves and mass murders. Expect some relief July 1 and more relief July 15.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Gemini, from 08:04 to 14:45°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets and is in good strength. This should be helpful to leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and governments – and connects same with stocks, business, communications, social activities and intellectual property.
Moon is waning and transits Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and into Aries. Moon, in Capricorn, is under the 3rd aspect of Saturn, June 23. (Avoid depressing people.) Moon in Aquarius is conjunct Ketu, under the aspect of Rahu, the evening of June 25th and early morning of June 26th (watch your emotional state).
Mars transits Libra, from 29:17 to 28:58°. Mars is retrograde until June 29, which is challenging for Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries whenever Mars is within 5° of their rising sign degree or another planet by aspect or conjunction. Mars is also weak in degrees until the end of July. This is not ideal for the police, military, athletes, executives, firefighters and property matters.
Mercury transits out of Taurus and into Gemini, June 26 at 8:37 p.m. CDT. Mercury, in Taurus, is under the 8th aspect of Mars, June 24 – 28. This connects stocks, business, computers, communications, and intellectual property with the military, police, athletes, executives and contractors. Mercury is weak in degrees June 24 – 28, which undermines the significations listed above.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 21:59 to 22:52°. Jupiter is starting to move away from the 10th aspect of Saturn, which is helpful for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA). Jupiter, however, remains closely conjunct Rahu through June. This has not been ideal for law, religion and education and has caused issues for same, along with children, students, educators, politicians and religious leaders. (Muslims are under political attack.)
Venus transits Gemini, from 12:32 to 21:08°. Venus remains combust until June 13 and comes under the 5th aspect of Ketu, June 26 – July 2. Take care of the women in your life and be careful with the arts, luxuries, transportation and entertainment. Watch for significant news about a well-known woman.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 17:36 to 17:09°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which is helpful for the elderly, 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. (No other rising signs will have problems with the so-called dreaded “Sade Sati”.)
Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 21:18 to 21:04°. Those persons, companies or countries with 20 – 22° rising signs or with any planet at 20 – 22° 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.
