So much has changed since my last post. I should appoligize for the delay and thank those of you who reminded me to update my transit predictions.
Saturn is in Sagittarius, Rahu and Ketu in Cancer and Capricorn respectively, and Jupiter is in Libra. The others are making their way more quickly. The Moon, as I write this, is only 3 degrees from exact conjunct with Rahu in Cancer (as I hit publish, this conjunction is exact). There is certain,y some relation between this Rahu in Cancer, the sign of home and defensive perimeters, and all of this independence movement in the world. Saturn’s aspect from Scorpio would have been acting as a somewhat restrictive force, but with Saturn’s movement to Sagittarius this restriction is removed. We will have to watch for Mars to make his way thru Sagittarius, Capricorn (March 7, 2018 & May 2, 2018 respectively until November 5, 2018) as well as his next pass thru his own sign of Aries (beginning Feb 5, 2019). I expect that it will be a particularly hot summer of 2018: heatwaves, drought, as well as the political situation internationally (war, independence movements, the refugee crisis, and every kind of sudden, unexpected and potentially explosive). As you read these horoscopes for each sign, try to keep the world in mind as much as you think about these in a personal way.
In any case:
Aries is the natural horoscope where the signs and the houses match. Aries natives will find themselves blessed by Jupiter’s aspect to ascendant. This can bring positive personal grow and prosperity that occasionally manifests itself on the belt-line. Guru’s aspects to the 11th house can bring multiple sources of profit and gain as well as expending ones hopes and friends circles. Considering this aspect is coming from the 7th house, Jupiter in Libra can be very good for business allowing for multiple partnerships and contracts. This multiplying effect in the 7th house is good for business, and positive for single people, but for marriage it can be inconvenient for those devoted to monogamy. However, since Jupiter owns the 12th house, all of these 7th house matters could merely be matters of the imagination or expenditure of our life force. Jupiter int he 7th house can be very good for personal motivation. It’s very likely you will find yourself in various situations where you have to look into yourself to discover the right and honest mode of action. Saturn’s aspect to the 3rd house could also cause several delays in your efforts due to wanting to act within the law while also maintaining your own personal sense of Justice as well. Saturn in the 9th house can bring hard luck materially, but spiritually, this Saturn can diminish our sense of greed, ego, and competitiveness (what the Bhagavad Gita calls the triple gates to hell) as well as bringing humility into our lives. The combination of Jupiter and Saturn aspecting the 11th house and the 3rd house is generally beneficial in our lives and the lives of our brothers, both younger and older. The 11th lord in the 9th house (11th from the 11th) is an auspicious placement as is the 9th lord in the 7th house (11th from 9th): gainful for brother, gainful for father, and potentially gain by luck for oneself.
Ketu and Saturn are sharing an aspect to Virgo in the 6th house but the nodes are otherwise acting without influence from the other slow moving planets. These aspects on the 6th house can suggest taking responsibility for ones own health as well as gaining some opportunity to do some kind of service or social work. You could find that your enemies and obstacles are dispersed and restricted thru this period. Rahu can increase your expenses and your impulses as well as personal sense of security. Rahu in the 4th hosue can, however, bring a false sense of security since the imposure might be inside your own home already. This Rahu can bring a change of residence and foreign travel and Saturn in the 9th can bring an arduous pilgrimage.
Taurus natives are very likely to receive help and/or good advice to overcome their difficulties. This could very well come unearned or unexpected from a friend or thru mysticism or occult means. Jupiter can bring gains from difficult situations and enmity, but the gain does come with some pain. Jupiter’s 12th house aspect can signify hospital intervention, ashram, charity or even educational expenditures. Again, Jupiter comes with mixed blessings for Taurus natives. The mutual aspect of Saturn and Jupiter on the 10th house can be good for one’s career and public reputation, but you are very likely to have top work incredibly hard; possibly taking on extra work or extra duties or extra hours that you may, or may not, get pain for. Many of Jupiter’s lessons with be taught alongside Saturn thru this period; this is one reason for the mixed results. Saturn is actually yoga karaka planet for Taurus natives. Yoga karaka essentially means that Saturn is very likely to be the most influential planet for bringing good and lasting things into a persons life. He gets this title of Yoga karaka by virtue of his ownership of the 9th and 10th houses; commonly considered the 2 best houses of the chart; essentially ones dharma and ones Karma follow a similar path. As Saturn transits thru Sagittarius, Taurus natives could take a turn for the secretive, hidden, mysterious; a holder of shocking secrets that cannot be disclosed. It could be a good time to acquire assets that will add to your families prosperity, the nature of this prosperity will be determined by ones own chart. If you are in business, you could find yourself seeking to broaden you distributive network; perhaps you have some local product or service that you’d like offer to a broader regional, national or especially foreign clientele. Taurus natives are likely to seek fulfillment thru friend networks, negotiations, contracts and partnerships. Regardless of your success in these endeavours, fulfillment is rarely achieved by following Rahu. This can be a very materialistic placement for Rahu, or, at least your sense of motivation may be suspect. Ketu is in an excellent position to bring you into contact with some kind of new age spirituality and/or spiritual practice. For Taurus natives, Ketu in Capricorn can bring a unique twist to ones life and personality. It could be one of those periods in ones life that we look back on as being a little strange. Ketu in the 9th house can bring many blessings from our past lives.
For Gemini natives, this could be a very good period for higher knowledge and education. Jupiter is blessing the 5th, 9th, 11th & 1st houses which can also be good for studentship, spiritual practices, gain of educated friends, as well as providing a broad base for profit. This can be a very good time for luck coincidences. Saturn in the 7th house can be very good for committed relationships, and taking responsibility for our agreements. This Saturn will be better for relationships that are already in progress since it’s likely to delay or restrict the forming of new contracts or partnerships. Jupiter can bring dating and romance in the 5th house, but Saturn effect will be felt in the negotiation/agreement making process. Jupiter will be giving some blessing to any risk taking activity, so I don’t suppose single people will shy from dating, nor, for that matter, will investors shy from risk taking. Jupiter in the 5th makes these kinds of things all about spreading it our; broadening; and expending the risk taking activity in order to diminish the risk. Jupiter does not jump into things impulsively and foolishly. Rahu is in the 2nd house which can be good for savings, assets and collections; but it can just as likely bring our ruin as we seek an image based on these things. Such a false image can be expensive and bring debt by Rahu’s 6th house aspect. Ketu in the 8th can lead to taking your secrets, dreams and those subtle signals from your ancestors for granted. There may be some disturbance in the home as ancestral spirits are disturbed; both repression and dispersal are possible. In any case, you are not likely to find much enjoyment in the home through this period. Since this home energy also connects with the mother, she might also face some difficulties in this period.
Cancer natives will be dealing with Rahu in the 1st house. This period will be all about you; other people in your life will either have to toe the line or go away. This is not a good frame of mind for healthy, prosperous relationships. Ketu could throw all these past agreements to the wind which would likely have negative effect on friend circles and distributive networks. Younger brothers are likely to be adversely affected, of you could find yourself associating with (or making business with) criminal elements. However, this Rahu can also bring a profound spiritual experience, world travel, pilgrimage or some unique (and likely intense) spiritual; practice. This Rahu likes Rudra and Durga and these destructively powerful energies of the universe. Knowledge and productivity are likely to progress along these lines. Ketu, as I said, will enhance your feeling of isolation. If we look at all of this as well as Jupiter’s influence to he 12th house this becomes an especially potent time for spirituality, higher knowledge, travel, connecting with ancestor spirits and other experiences that will help to carry you into your future. Be wary of occasional lapses of judgment; be gentle on yourself. Jupiter can also enlarge your home from the 4th house; this could be a renovation or addition to the home structure itself, or it could be an increase in the number of people in the home (children, some family member coming to stay, or perhaps a new tenant or roommate). This sort of thing can sometimes be a little uncomfortable and put people a little on edge making them feel like some normal routine things now have to be completed under the cover of secrecy. Saturn in the 6th house can be beneficial for you as he gives a restrictive influence to your enemies and obstacles. However, the planet of service in the house of service will give you some service to perform in your life; such social service should be considered a great blessing in life.

This page has information on the 10th lord in the houses, the planets in the 10th house, the Navamsha of the 10th lord & miscellaneous rules relating to the 10th house.
The 10th house is the main house of career, public reputation and social leadership. The 6th house describes the kinds of duties we have to perform day to day. Traditionally, the 2nd house would show our family lineage which would have a strong influence on our main occupation at well. These are the karma houses, they answer the question: “What will I do?” I will go into more detail about these below, but before I do that I will just briefly go over some of the ways that the other houses affect your career since there are so many things to take into account for this important topic.
What we do is greatly influenced by what we believe. Some suggest that karma is the wealth of our dharma. What we do shows the value of what we believe (9th house). This tells us the importance of the Dharma houses (1st, 5th & 9th houses) in determining career. 1st house shows the foundation of our career – reputation. 5th house show’s the sudden and unexpected events in our career that happen by circumstance (right time, right place). We seek sanctuary from our careers in the 9th house; however the beliefs and higher knowledge of the 9th house forms the foundation of the 6th house service we perform.
Most people who are concerned about career are also concerned about gathering some fruit from that career, so, we have to consider the kama trine (3rd, 7th & 11th houses). This is what motivates us. In the third house we are willing to leave our comfort zone and make an effort to appease our inner narrative. Although the 3rd house does not ring with the light and the truth of the 9th house, this inner narrative and the stories we tell ourselves are of great importance in our lives regardless of their truth or falsity. The 3rd house also shows the obstacles we will face in our career. The 7th house shows the way we honour our agreements and our negotiating style and is especially important for business people, counselors or others whose careers involved contracting their time or negotiations. The 7th house also shows our reputation with our career. The 11th house shows the value of all that 10th house activity as well as our connections in the marketplace.
Within the moksha trine (4th, 8th & 12th houses) the 4th house showing foundation education is the natural partner to your career. This shows the basic education necessary to maintain your position in society. The 8th house show gain from that career and position in society including bonuses, perks, health benefit plans and the like. Of course it’s also famous for hidden and unearned wealth. The 12th house shows how our a career allows us to reach out to the world. This shows the mentality of our boss or the company we work with.
The 10th lord in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 10th, 11th houses are generally good for career. In the 6th house can also be good. Much depends on the condition of the 10th house and the 10th lord.

In the 3rd 6th or 9th there may also be enmity, sudden shock or loss related to career.
The 3rd house is upachya and one may face many obstacles early. Due to the messaging content of this house you will likely face some opposition in your career.
The 6th house is an upachya house so one needs patience; it’s the house of servitude so one needs humility. This can bring recognition for public, community, social service. One needs to release themselves from the expectation for results. (Gita Remedy)
