Chart of the Week: Muhammad Ali (Jan. 17, 1942, 6:35 p.m., Louisville, KY) had the Cancer rising sign with Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus in Capricorn. Rahu in the 2nd house gave wealth, ambition, charisma and clever speech. The planets ruling the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th houses are placed in the 7th house, which made him earthy and practical and gave powerful and complex marriages (4), partnerships, and joint ventures. Ketu in the 8th house gave an interest in spirituality. Saturn and Mars in the 10th house gave courage, athletic prowess and leadership of the masses. The well-placed ruler of the 6th house, Jupiter, in the 11th house gave children (9), religious friendships, and the power to overcome enemies and win in legal battles. The affliction of the 8th house ruler, Saturn, to the 10th, 12th, 4th, and 7th houses brought divorces, deathlike experiences, Parkinson’s syndrome, and a reduced lifespan.

WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits out of Taurus and into Gemini, June 14, at 11:50 a.m. CDT. Sun is weak in degrees until June 19. Leaders, physicians, administrators and governments should get extra rest. Sun is closely conjunct Venus until June 23. Taurus, Scorpio and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient — as Venus rules their 6th, 12th and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Moon is waxing and transits Cancer, Leo Virgo and into Libra. Moon, in Leo, is under the influence of Rahu and Ketu onJune 11. Watch your emotional state and avoid unstable people.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 01:53 to 00:16°. Mars is weak in degrees until the end of July. This is not ideal for the police, military, athletes, executives, firefighters and property matters. Mars is also 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 remains in Scorpio until June 18 — and then again from July 12 to 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. These rising sign persons can safely wear a red coral gemstone (ring or pendant) to strengthen Mars.
Mercury transits Taurus, from 01:09 to 10:34°. Mercury is under the 7th aspect of Mars until June 12. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient as Mars rules their 12th, 8th and 6th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 20:32 to 21:12°. Jupiter is under the 10th aspect of Saturn until June 26. This slow-moving transit is a challenge for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA), as the mooltrikona sign for Saturn falls in their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively. Jupiter is also closely conjunct Rahu through June. This is not ideal for law, religion, and education. Expect challenges for same, along with children, students, educators, politicians and religious leaders.
Venus transits out of Taurus and into Gemini, June 12 at 6:06 p.m. CDT. Venus is weak in degrees until June 16. Take care of the women in your life and be vigilant with luxuries, entertainment and transportation. Venus is under the 8th aspect of Mars until June 16. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient as Mars rules their 12th, 8th and 6th (inauspicious) houses, respectively. Venus is also closely conjunct Sun until June 23. Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient as Sun rules their 12th, 8th and 6th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 19:06 to 18:05°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful to the elderly, poor and needy, and working class persons, as well as manufacturing, agriculture and the oil, gas and minerals industries.
Saturn is retrograde until August 13, which is challenging for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries 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 dreaded “Sade Sati”.)
Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 22:48 to 22:33°. Those persons, companies or countries with 21 – 23° rising signs or with any planet at 21 – 23° 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 and do “Bhoota and Deva Yagyas” (charities and chants) for the planets causing adverse effects.
