Vedic Astrology Transits

Last Update: July 31, 2020

These are my optimistic interpretations of the effects of transiting planets on the human collective, focusing on the manifestation of a prosperous timeline.

BIG PICTURE: Pluto, which represents generational changes, is currently shuttling around the junction of Sagittarius and Capricorn, and will be mostly in Capricorn until 2039. This represents the destruction and rebuilding of all fundamental structures including political, financial and religious institutions. Saturn in Capricorn for most of 2020, 2021 and 2022 will reinforce Pluto’s plan. The world will be very different in 2022, hopefully prosperous and peaceful.

Aug 2020:

Mars into Aries and Sun into Leo on Aug 16. From mid-Aug through mid-Sep, Mars, Sun and Jupiter are in their own fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), creating a GRAND FIRE TRIANGLE. Positive effect: There will be indications of promising therapeutic solutions for viruses and other diseases. The entities suppressing helpful information and spreading panic will be exposed. Negative effect: Escalation of war activity between certain nations.

Venus in Gemini will stimulate people to express their true feelings and act upon them, instead of staying in suppressed mode. Mercury will be zooming through Cancer and Leo covering two signs in just one month. There is exact Sun-Mercury conjunction on Aug 17 and new moon in Magha nakshatra on Aug 18. Mercury being in direct motion (i.e behind Sun from perspective of Earth), stimulates bright, positive, self-empowering thought patterns. Uranus in Aries goes retrograde on Aug 15, triggering energies of creation and invention (esp helpful to medicine researchers). Overall it feels like we can see the light at the end of the tunnel after mid-August.

WEATHER CAUTION: Powerful planets passing through Water-Fire sign junction (called gandhAnta) during August and September will cause extreme weather events, including tropical storms, hurricanes and flooding all over the world.

Mars in Pisces (June 18 – Aug 16, Oct 4 – Dec 24): Due to retrograde motion, Mars is spending almost five months in Pisces. This indicates energization of freedom movements all over the world. Pisces being the fourth house in USA chart, indicates domestic violence (riots, etc.).

Sep 2020: Mercury in Virgo Sep 2-21 stimulates creation of new medicines for common diseases. Mars in Aries retrograde on Sep 9. Jupiter in Sagittarius direct on Sep 13, Ketu/Rahu transit into Scorpio/Taurus on Sep 20. Saturn in Capricorn direct on Sep 29.

Oct 2020: Mars back in Pisces on Oct 4. Mercury in Libra retrograde on Oct 13.

Nov 2020: Mercury in Libra direct on Nov 3 (day of US election). Mars in Pisces direct on Nov 13. Venus into Libra on Nov 16. Jupiter into Capricorn on Nov 20.

Dec 2020: Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Capricorn on Dec 20. Mars into Aries on Dec 24.
