Note: The first part of this newsletter describes the position of the planets this week according to Vedic astrology. The second part describes the impact of the transit planets for each
In Memoriam: In the horoscope for USA*, in addition to Sun (representing leadership and the government) being debilitated in Libra, on November 8th, the day of our national election, Jupiter, ruling the 6th house of enemies and litigation was afflicting the 3rd house of communications, the 7th house of relationships, the 9th house of spirituality, and the 11th house of friendships. This also undermined the strength of natal Sun, Moon, and Mercury, along with transit Mars and Jupiter.
Transit Saturn, ruling the 8th house of setbacks, obstructions, disappointments, and deathlike experiences, was afflicting the 5th house of mind and investments; the 7th house of relationships and foreign affairs; the 11thhouse of income and friendships; and the 2nd house of wealth, status and family life. This also undermined the strength of natal Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, along with transit Mars.
Transit Rahu was afflicting natal Rahu, and transit Ketu was afflicting natal Ketu.
Taken together, these transits are inordinately stressful and do not support the country as a whole. These transits remain applicable up to Dec. 15.
(*The horoscope for USA is based on the “Systems’ Approach to Mundane Vedic Astrology (SAMVA)” chart, which is based on the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.)
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits out of its debilitation sign, Libra, and into Scorpio, Nov. 15 at 6:47 p.m. CST. Sun is weak in degrees until Nov. 20. Leaders, administrators, physicians and governments should get extra rest.
Moon is waxing and waning and transits Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, and into Gemini. The full Moon is in Aries, Nov. 14 at 7:52 a.m.
Mars transits its exaltation sign, Capricorn, from 06:38 to 11:48°. Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets and is in good strength. This should be favorable for coups, the military, police, athletes, executives, surgeons and firefighters, along with property matters.
Mercury transits Scorpio, from 02:15 to 13:00°. Mercury is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be good for stocks, business, communications, computers, finance and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits Virgo, from 18:56 to 20:16°. Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor, the fast-moving and frequently weak Mercury, until Sept. 2017.Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should be careful and patient over the next 11 months — and wear a yellow sapphire gemstone, as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Venus transits Sagittarius, from 03:34 to 11:55°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor, Jupiter, until Dec. 2. This should be a good transit for the women in your life and for luxuries, the arts, entertainment and transportation.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 21:16 to 22:03°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be helpful for the elderly, the poor and needy, and working class persons. Agriculture, manufacturing and the gas, oil, and minerals industries should do well.
Saturn remains in Scorpio through Jan. 25. This 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 any planet, by aspect or conjunction.
Rahu and Ketu transit Leo and Aquarius, respectively, from 16:08 to 15:14°. Those persons, companies or countries with 14 – 17° rising signs or with any planet at 14 – 17° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be careful and patient – and at all times.
