Note: We are still in the 2-week period between the total solar eclipse (March 8) and the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse (during the full Moon on March 23). Generally, unusual and unkind worldwide events take place during this period of time. Get extra rest and take care of your loved ones. Be vigilant in crowds and exercise care and patience.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Pisces, from 02:57 to 09:54°. Sun is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful for leaders, presidents, governments, administrators, physicians, gold, etc. Persons with Pisces rising signs in the 3 to 9° range should be careful and patient to manage debts, disputes and health issues.
Moon is waxing and transits Gemini, Cancer, Leo and into Virgo. The full Moon and penumbral lunar eclipse take place on March 23 at 7:00 a.m. CDT.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 09:39 to 11:34°. Mars is in good strength and outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful for the significations of Mars, such as property, military, police, sports, engineering, etc. (Russia withdraws from Syria.)
Mars remains in Scorpio until June 18 — and then again from July 12 to Sept. 17. This prolonged stay in Scorpio is not ideal for Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius rising sign persons, companies and countries. These rising sign persons can safely wear a red coral gemstone (ring or pendant) to strengthen Mars.
Mercury transits out of Aquarius and into its debilitation sign, Pisces, on March 18 at 5:07 p.m. CDT. Mercury is close to Ketu until March 20, which may cause issues with stocks, business and communications, along with health and computer viruses. Mercury is close to Sun, March 18 – 28. Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies, and countries should be careful and patient.
Jupiter transits Leo, from 23:05 to 22:13° and is retrograde until May 9. Jupiter is now under the 10th aspect of Saturn until June 26. This slow-moving transit is not ideal for Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries (including USA). Exercise care and patience and help the elderly and the poor and needy on Saturdays. Avoid black, brown, gray and dull colors.
Venus transits Aquarius, from 11:49 to 20:28°. Venus is under the 4th aspect of Mars until March 19. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, companies and countries should be careful and patient.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 22:15 to 22:19°. Saturn is in good strength, which should be good for agriculture, manufacturing and the elderly and working-class persons. This may also explain the over-abundance/production of oil.
Rahu and Ketu are stationary at 27° until April 23rd. This is absolutely not ideal for those persons, companies or countries with 27° rising signs or with any planet at 27° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius). The impact intensifies weekly. Planetary remedies add protective covering: strengthen your benefic planets and do charities for afflicted persons and spiritual organizations.
