2017 -2018 Transit predictions for Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio: Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Libra, Rahu in Cancer & Ketu in Capricorn



For Leo natives, Jupiter is giving his blessing to the Kama (desire) trine which can act as a multiplier, so desire could be strong in this period; though since it’s the Guru who giving his dristi to this trine, you are likely to conduct yourself honourably; due to which there is a very good chance of enlarging your fiends circle as well as you access to distributive networks. It could be good time for academics seeking publication or for crafts people who do work with their hands and those seeking job specific certifications. This could be a good period for Leo natives to gain from their relationships, negotiation settings or contracts, though Saturn in the 5th house will give strong resistance to risk taking (or ego based) behaviours. However, such caution could also be rewarded romantically or otherwise. Saturn is also giving his aspect to the houses of wealth (the 11th and 2nd) which can be restrictive due to ones deeper sense of responsibility to children, students, or ongoing creative outlets. The combined aspects of Saturn and ketu the the 2nd house can be both restrictive and dispursive bringing difficulty to ones savings, collections and even family values. However, it should also be noted that Ketu is generally does very good work for us in the 6th house. Debt could be eliminated and enemies and obstacles dispursed in a relatively painless way. Ketu in the 6th house occasionally signifies bankruptcy as well as new age healing techniques that could also be beneficial for you at this time. Ketu’s aspect to your 10th house suggest it could be a good time to change careers, or to solidify your reputation in some unusual field. Rahu in the 12th house can bring all kinds material expenditure, while bringing your focus to spirituality, meditation, dream space, and foreign travel. Keep in mind that this Rahu also likes sex and smoke, so it Leo natives might find themselves easily tempted to less wholesome secret activity.


Virgo natives could face some health problems in this period as Saturn and Ketu both aspect your lagna. This could also be a very good time for gain of vehicles, land, wealth. First marriages could face some surprising developments, but Virgo natives in their second marriage find this period more agreeable. In regards to those health problems I mentioned, you could find some relief thru Ayurveda or other folk remedies. Although the same energy that makes such healing possible could also bring some measure of dispute into the home, with ones mother or parents in general. This is also not likely to be a good period for ones children as Ketu and Saturn are both in difficult placement for the 5th house. Ketu can also lead to a loss of faith thru mere neglect. Rahu will be in the 11th house which could cause you to question the true intentions behind some of your friendships, but this Rahu can be good for profit and gain as you seek some direction thru your partners. Partnerships are likely to have a very strong influence on you in this period as you also find yourself strongly motivated by profit.


Libra natives will gain many blessings by Jupiter’s transit thru lagna, however this Jupiter also gives strong indications for some kind of swelling or enlargement of the body or some part of the body. This is generally a protective covering of fat, but if it gets to be too much, this defensive mechanism can become a problem. Jupiter’s aspects to 5th, 7th, and 9th house can also be a boon for education and you may be relied upon for advice in this period. This can be an excellent time for the children of Libra natives as they are likely to gain in life as well as achieve some wish they have been working towards. Business negotiations and contracts could prove lucrative in this period, and your spouse is likely to benefit as well. However you could meet with difficulties in a couple of related areas of life. Bed pleasures are likely to be either non-existent or somehow traditionally unnatural, and your home life might be taken for granted or disturbed. Perhaps in the process of moving you will find yourself with multiple homes but unable to feel at home. Rahu in the 10th house can be a good driver for your career, though Rahu tends to overstep his bounds; this could suggest a temporary position. The difficulty is that you may not treat it like a temporary position and over spend during a brief period of wealth in such a way that you end up more greatly impoverished. Be careful with purchases of expensive assets. It’s also possible that you could inadvertently release some secrets that you were meant to hold.


Scorpio natives are likely to have some foreign connections in this time, either thru travel or study. Expenditure is likely to be high in this period, but you are likely to be enriched in other ways (education, spirituality, ashram, retreat). Jupiter is also signifies children and other forms of creative productivity which may run into so unexpected expenses. Savings is also likely to meet expenditure or perhaps you will gain prosperity thru foreign sources. Saturn can be good for antique collectors as well as gain of property. It could also be a period where you are asked to oversee the collections or savings of the family or others. And although you are likely to see some kind of expansion of the home environment either in the size of the home or the number of people who live there, you might also suffer under some new rules and regulations in the home environment. You will likely be relied upon to collect confidential information and you will handle that information responsibly as your prosperity in this period will be effected not only by confidential sources, but also from other secret knowledge that you have gathered throughout your life. You could gain by the masses, but it might only be pennies at a time. The extent of gain will be seen in your individual natal chart. However, be very careful with your friendships in this period as you are likely to come into contact with a variety of societies undesirables. You might find yourself cut off from your distributive networks and separated from younger siblings, and you could find it quite difficult to motivate yourself to take direct action to achieve your goals. If you are in a marriage relationship, some difficulties are indicated. Contracts and such things in general will not hold your attention for long. Rahu is giving great indication for higher knowledge and pilgrimage travel; there are strong indications that you might undergo some secretive, intense, mystical spiritual practice. Scorpio native might have to be very conscious about the feelings and presence of others in their life as this Rahu can give selfish tendencies.

2017 Transits for Scorpio

I finally get to my own rising sign, Scorpio. Scorpios are still suffering with Sade Sati as Saturn goes back and forth between the 1st and the 2nd houses. Sade sati can influence durable savings. Perhaps it can be said that as the trouble of Saturn’s transit over moon sign or rising sign, one begins to feel the need for some kind of security. As 4th house owner in the 2nd house, there can be some positive gain of land and savings (these positive outcomes are perhaps more likely for Scorpios more advanced in age). Anytime Saturn influences the 2nd house, we have to have some concern for the teeth, which is likely influenced by the dry, starchy, even stale food that Saturn likes to eat. With Mars and Rahu also influencing this second house, I can’t expect much health to come from your diet; and this motely crew could even escalate things to a point of surgery. However, since Jupiter owns this 2nd house and sits in the 11th, you could make some gain from food or speech or family or perhaps merely thru adjustments to liquid assets. There will, no doubt, be difficulties in the family: major sickness or death (this sort of prediction generally goes with sade sati as well).

This Saturn is looking at the 4th house giving his affects to the mother and the home. You are likely feeling some responsibility for your home or homeland, while Ketu is doing his best to help you to disregard it. A serene home life is not on the cards for Scorpios, though there is a good chance that there will be changes in these matters by Ketu’s influence. Saturn’s look at the 8th house is generally considered favourable. Anything that begins in this period is likey to be maintained. Although this Saturn gives longevity in the 8th, this does not also suggest a life of ease. Longevity by this Saturn generally accompanies some pain and suffering. Saturn’s 10th look is going to the 11th house which would be crimping you profits and gains and ensuring that those around you do not challenge the status quo. Any gains that are made in this period are quite likely to be the product of hard work and committed responsibility.

I mentioned Ketu’s cutting qualities in the 4th house. This sharpness will also go to his look on the 8th house, which, combined with Saturn and Mars, also suggests some sudden health concerns and possibly a surgical procedure. This combination could suggest other kinds of cuts, burns, chemical reactions or accidents as well. Mercury, the owner of the 8th hose is in the 7th suggesting that your secrets may also be released. And there is a good opportunity for some secret partnership. Your spouse could also suffer from some separation with his or her family at this time. Ketu’s aspect on the 12th house is generally a positive indication. Lack of sleep could be a result, but more likely is less expenditure. This will not be a period of wasting your time. Dreams are likely to take on an unsual importance in this period as well; though, like sleep, meditation may also be difficult.

Rahu is in the 10th house working on our public reputation. He will do good work to get us noticed, but it might not always be in the best light. Rahu in the 10th can often tarnish our reputation in society by not acting in approved ways (not that approved channels is necessarily where we all wish to be noticed). So as usual, the transit results, and our reaction to them has much more to do with were we are in life and what we want than with the facts of this al that occurrence. Rabhu is looking at the 2nd house, which increases our ego and promotes expenditure so that we might appear as someone with means. Rahu’s aspect on the 6th house can give debt and various obstacles. If your job involves removing obstacles or solving problems for people, then such a Rahu can be a very good thing for your chart.

Jupiter is in the 11th house helping you to come up with new and novel ways for making gains and fulfilling your hopes. You will likely attract upright people working for a noble cause and with Mercury transiting the 7th house, this late summer period could be a good time for gaining thru agreement, negotiation and/or contract; speculation and risk is also likely to turn a small profit at this time. Any sort of agreement that you make is likely to have noble intentions and Jupiter’s aspect to the 7th will likely ensure that all parties live up to their contract agreements at this time. This is a good time, for education.

Relationship with spouse could experience some turbulence in this period as your mind is likely to be considering options and perhaps avoiding being forthright in your words or behaviour.
