WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits Virgo, from 12:23 to 19:17°. This connects leaders and governments with business, computers, communications, and intellectual property.
Moon is waning (and waxing) and transits Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio. The new Moon is in Virgo, Sept. 30.
Mars transits Sagittarius, from 07:08 to 11:48 °. Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is co-dependent on the strength of its dispositor (landlord), Jupiter until Oct. 31.
Mercury transits out of Leo and into its own sign, Virgo, Oct. 3, 6:27 a.m. CDT. Mercury is weak in degrees until Oct. 6. Be careful with stocks, business, computers, communications and intellectual property.
Jupiter transits Virgo, from 10:09°. Jupiter starts to move away from the close conjunction with Sun, but Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces rising sign persons, companies and countries should remain vigilant until Oct. 1 Jupiter is co-dependent on the strength of its fast-moving dispositor (landlord) Mercury, so this transit (through mid-Sept. 2017) is not completely stable for any rising sign. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should take care over the next 12 months — and wear a yellow sapphire gemstone, as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Venus transits its own sign, Libra, from 12:43 to 21:14°. Venus is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should continue to be good for women (Hillary?), romance, luxuries, affluence, creativity, entertainment, medicine, architecture, photography, music, theater, and the fine, healing and performing arts.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 17:23 to 17:55°. Saturn is outside the orb of influence of other planets, which should be good for agriculture and manufacturing. This transit, however, 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 18:37 to 18:10°. Rahu and Ketu remain stationary in the 18-degree range until Oct. 16. Those persons, companies or countries with 17 – 19° rising signs or with any planet at 17 – 19° in odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, or Aquarius) should be careful and patient – and at all times.
Rahu is under the 10th aspect of Saturn until Nov.8, our national election day. This may be the source of the current issues with the oil and gas industries, along with the violence and unrest of the masses and working-class persons.
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: Mystical Pendant and do “Bhoota and Deva Yagyas” (charities and chants) for the planets causing adverse effects.
NOTE: In the SAMVA* chart for USA based on the Articles of Confederation, the transits of the Moon’s nodes, Rahu and Ketu, afflict 6 of the 12 houses — July through Oct. This causes stress, calamities, and the instability the country is going through. Expect relief after the November election. * Systems’ Approach to Mundane Vedic Astrology.
