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 Virgo

Jupiter is transiting the 1st house and the 1st house owner is in the 9th house suggesting an excellent time for education and spiritual knowledge. With the Sun also in the 9th house, you might find your father or guru to be a little too over bearing in this period. This Jupiter can also influence a few extra pounds around the midline (most cultures take this as a positive sign of prosperity). Speaking of health, Ketu is transiting the 6th house suggesting that you might be neglecting your health and the advice of your doctors or others who are trying to help you overcome any obstacles in your life. Rahu in the 12th can bring fatigue or abnormal growths to the feet. Mars – Ketu – Saturn influence on the 10 house can damage the knees, and the malefic influence on the 4th house can effect the heart, the chest of the upper digestive tract. Ketu in the 6th is also suggestive of some strange (undiagnosable or mis-diagnosed) dis-ease. Holistic practitioners are much better equipped to diagnose and treat illnesses related to Rahu and Ketu.

Rahu in the 12th house highlights expenditure for Virgo native. Rahu likes being in the 12th house. If there is anything that Rahu understands, it’s expenditure. But a head without a body can spend without limits and has little concern for what is lost. This can also be a very powerful spiritual placement as Rahu brings our strongest desires (our uncontrollable urges) into the house of Moksha (though it also relates with bed pleasures). This Rahu is also very well placed for foreign travel. The ruler of this 12th house for Virgo natives is the Sun who is placed in the 9th house giving double potency to travel possibilities (though this Sun can also signify loss of father or guru.

Ketu is in the 6th house. With all the malefic aspects to this Ketu in 6th house, I’d really hate to have any Virgo enemies. This combination certainly doesn’t bode well for them. I suspect this combination will be better for the Virgo native than it is for Virgo enemies. Though of course Virgo will still have to deal with enemies and obstacles in a very harsh way that can be just as challenging as having that harshness directed at you. Surgical procedures are also possible with this combination.

Saturn is in the 4th house giving a strong feeling of responsibility in the home and for the homeland. Since Saturn owns the 6th house, he could also bring disputes in to the home or with our mother of parents. Teaching or running some kind of home or school is also possible by this combination. You may, however, feel separated from your children. Even if they are physically present in your life, you may feel as though you’ve been shut out of their private life. Saturn’s aspect on the 6th house suggests some small health concern could grow and become more serious (likely aided by Ketu’s indifference). Saturn’s aspects on 10th and 1st houses suggest that you may be especially diligent and sober and lawful in this period. It’s good time to take on extra responsibilities.

Jupiter Transiting Virgo: Results for Virgo Ascendant or Moon in Virgo


When Jupiter transits Virgo, he will be showering the very being of Virgos with his blessings. Of course, Jupiter’s blessings are not quite as pure for Virgos as is the case with several other ascendants. It’s long been recognized that Jupiter looses his first face when he comes into ownership of two kendra houses. It’s not that he reverses his face of benevolence, he just falls into helping like a normal man rather than like a saint. His wisdom can also become blunted.

In any case, Virgos should find their health strong while pleasures of the home and of the spouse are likely to relate to their personality. This may be especially true for women since Jupiter is known generally as the karaka for husband as well as being the 7th house owner which gives him an especially strong influence on such matters. In regards to some other general areas of life signified by Jupiter are children as well as the fat which is on our body. Since the first house affects our body, it’s possible that there could be some general expansion of the body. Children are also signified by Jupiter. It’s interesting that for Virgo natives, he rules the 4th house of the chest as well as the 7th house relating with the groin area while looking at the 5th house of children (and the stomach) as well as the 9th house relating to the thighs).

I would expect this Jupiter in Virgo transit to give favourable results to most Virgos, however there are many factors which need to be considered within your own chart as well as regarding the transits of all the other planets. Saturn, for instance, is also aspecting the 5th and the 9th houses which could suggest responsibility in these matters just as easily as it could represent delay or sorrow. And perhaps Saturn will give better results to these houses since, as 5th house owner looking at his own 5th house as well as his friends 9th house, he may have more welcome in operating in these fields than Jupiter who is not liked by either Saturn or Venus. Much of this again depends on their functioning in your own chart and the temporal relationship they have in your life.

I want to go back to this weight gain I mentioned with this combination. In many traditional societies, weight gain is looked upon favourably as a sign of prosperity. Even today I can recognize prosperity in my friends by the girth of their waist. It’s a luxury that we can seek to remain thin while still feeling secure that we will not starve. So, since you may show the signs of outward prosperity, there is also some likelihood that you will have it in your life as well.

Jupiter will be looking at your 9th house can bring some activity to your higher beliefs. Some meeting with a teacher is likely. This teacher could just as easily be a landscape, a temple, or any other sublime use of the senses. The 9th house also suggests some kind of pilgrimage travel, but Rahu currently transiting your 12th house and Jupiter’s previous position in the 12th house likely had a more powerful effect on travel and thoughts and feelings of being distant from your self (1st house). In any case, perhaps his Leo transit started you to expend your time and energy on some charity or education and now with Jupiter looking at the 9th house you will have the opportunity to gather the spiritual and religious fruits of that expenditure.

The 5th house represents spiritual practices rather than spiritual beliefs. With Capricorn in the 5th house Virgo natives can have a very practical way of thinking. For this reason they can be good at science and administration and they will always work hard to come to some solution. With both Saturn and Jupiter looking at the 5th house, this suggests a good time for spiritual practice, education, and your creative production in general.
