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

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

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.

Gemini

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

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.

Transits for Taurus in early 2016

I’ve tried to limit my forecast to the four slow moving planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu), while also highlighting the sign change of Rahu and Ketu. I have occasionally mentioned a few of the other transits that will be effecting things, but this evaluation is none the less far from complete. If you’re interested in a more complete reading please contact me with your date, time and place of birth.

Rahu & Jupiter in Leo

As Rahu moves into the 4th house of Leo for Taurus ascendant or those with moon in Taurus, he will bring his clouded ways into your home and your happiness, affecting your mood and possibly your mother’s health. Rahu’s new drishti on 8th and 12th houses could add some overseas or foreign travel to your itinerary over the next 18 months, but he can also cause problems from sudden or unexpected events and/or wasteful expenditure. His conjunction with the retrograde owner of 8th house Sagittarius (Jupiter) could prove especially malefic due to his very power control over Jupiter. Guru Chandal Yoga corrupts the guru, the teacher, the counselor; it must affect even more when Guru is walking backwards (retro) as he will be until April. Some might take comfort that Jupiter is also giving a positive look to overseas and foreign travel.

Jupiter in Leo

I’ve written elsewhere about the negative effects on Jupiter in the 4th house when Rahu conjoins him there in January, but Jupiter will still be showering his benevolence on the 8th house which could allow for some new discoveries in the home, while his look on the 12th house could open up some fresh expenditure perhaps for charity or perhaps for the expansion in the home that could suddenly seem to be going awry.

Saturn in Scorpio

Saturn will be in 7th house Scorpio for Taurus people. He will be looking at the 9th, 1st, and 4th houses. His main activity will be to delay partnerships and give a strong commitment to them when he does move into one. A owner of the 9th and 10th house he could bring both a working relationship to partnerships as well as cooperation regarding law and spirituality. His look on the 9th house is likely to have the effect of strengthening ones religious resolve, while his look on the first house could cause some health problems and perhaps even causing people to view your personality as being a bit rigid. Once Rahu moves into Leo at the end of January, his look will come off the 1st house which is certain to be positive for the health, though Saturn may still cause some suffering. Saturn’s look at the forth house and Rahu and Jupiter who are transiting the 4th house is likely to cause difficulties in the home and could affect your mothers health. By the 24th of February when the full moon conjoins Rahu and Jupiter there is sure to be a situation for sadness (Saturn), frustration (Rahu) and feelings of helplessness as moon rules the 3rd house of efforts. Jupiter is helpless in this situation and even worse, he could be offering corrupt self serving advice just as Dronacharya (the guru) did to Eklavya (the out-caste student) when he told him to cut off his own thumb.

Ketu in Aquarius

Ketu in Aquarius (10th house for Taurus people) will negate your career and reputation. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t have a career, it just won’t feel like it matters to you at this time. Your occupation could be feeling routine and perhaps bringing with it some boredom as as though you’ve perhaps outgrown it. Of course while the Sun transits Aquarius from mid-February to mid-March with Mars looking on from the seventh house, the conditions will be ripe for explosive situations to occur in you career, occupation, or just in the public sphere. Changes to 10th house affairs could certainly occur quickly. Ketu will be looking at you 2nd house restricting your savings (perhaps even cutting into it while Mars transits Scorpio and Sagittarius since the 2nd house will be getting drishti from Ketu and Mars both during this period. Ketu’s drishti on the 6th house Libra is a time to take special care of your health since Ketu’s influence could cause you to disregard symptoms that could be pointing to more serious issues. You might also be disinclined to end contacts or partnerships at this time despite difficult and frustrations posed by Mars coming conjunct with Saturn in Scorpio. If you do decide to complete some contract, it likely won’t be anything you loose sleep over.

March 2016 Notes

A solar eclipse takes place on March 6th and then a few days later the moon goes dark. On March 9th, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Ketu will all be in Aquarius (the 10th house for Taurus Ascendent) for the new moon. Rahu and Jupiter (still retro, sill Guru Chandal Yoga) will be look across from Leo, and Mars will be giving his 4th look while conjunct Saturn in Scorpio. This marks a first rate planetary war in the 10th house Aquarius. Saturn is the only planet that will not have direct influence on the 10th house but will be causing a restricting/delaying effect to partnerships and contracts that is likely to cause frustration considering he’s conjunct his enemy Mars in Mars’ own house. The good news is that Mars, being in his own house, should be able to over come the difficulties. Saturn is also a Raja yoga Karika for Taurus ascendant bringing luck and occupation into whatever house he transits. Be prepared to do some work on your relationships at this time. With all those planets in 10th house we can expect fights over leadership and possibly a change of occupation. Since the 10th is 12th from the 11th your friendships are also likely to get shuffled. It’s perhaps one of those times when we discover who our real friends are.
