Note: We are still in the two-week period between the annular solar eclipse (Sept. 1) and penumbral lunar eclipse (Sept. 16). It is advisable to be vigilant during this time. Generally there are unfavorable events worldwide.
WHERE THE (VEDIC ASTROLOGY) PLANETS ARE THIS WEEK:
Sun transits its own sign, Leo, from 21:53° to 28:41. Sun moves away from the influence of Rahu, Ketu and Saturn. This should be helpful for leaders, physicians, administrators and governments.
Moon transits Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and into Aquarius. Moon, in Scorpio, is debilitated Sept. 8 – 9. Watch your emotional state, avoid unstable persons, and be careful in crowds.
Mars transits Scorpio, from 23:59 to 28:12°. Mars is outside the orb of influence of other planets, but is weak in degrees until Sept. 26. The military, police, firefighters, surgeons, athletes and executives should get extra rest. Be patient with property matters. Mars remains in Scorpio until Sept. 17. This prolonged (7-month) transit has not been favorable for Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius rising sign persons, companies and countries, as Mars is transiting their 8th, 6th, and 12th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Mercury transits out of its exaltation signs Virgo, and back into Leo on Sept. 9 at 6:29 a.m. CDT. Mercury is weak in degrees until Sept. 14 and is retrograde, Aug. 30 – Sept. 21. Be careful with stocks, business and communications. Contrary to popular belief, retrograde Mercury is NOT a problem for 9 rising signs. The impact is primarily for Aries, Libra and Aquarius rising signs, and only if and when Mercury is within 5 degrees of the person’s rising sign degree or any planet, by aspect or conjunction.
Jupiter transits Virgo, from 05:38 to 07:08°. This should be favorable for law, religion, banking and educational institutions. Jupiter, however, is co-dependent on its dispositor (landlord), Mercury – which is fast-moving and frequently vulnerable to weakness or afflictions. Jupiter’s transit (through mid-Sept. 2017) is not completely stable for any rising sign. Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising sign persons should be careful and patient — and wear a yellow sapphire gemstone – as Jupiter is transiting their 6th, 12th, and 8th (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Venus transits its debilitation sign, Virgo, from 17:05 to 25:38°. Venus is debilitated until Sept. 18. Take care of the women in your life and be patient with luxuries, entertainment, the arts, medicine and transportation.
Saturn transits Scorpio, from 16:13 to 16:32°. 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 18:37 to 18:39°. 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.
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.
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
