Vedic Astrology Transits: Old Posts

July 2021

Expect a fiery event in the first week of July due to exact Saturn-Mars opposition, squared by Uranus. Mars will move out of its debilitation sign Cancer on July 20, and will be in its strong sign Leo until Sep 5. Sun will be in Cancer mid-July through mid-August, and then move into Leo to be conjunct with Mars for three weeks. Hot events, which are currently brewing, will likely explode in late August. Mercury is in direct motion in Taurus, moving into Gemini on July 7, and will be there until July 25. We can expect some hidden truths to come out during July 7-25.

June 2021

Solar Eclipse: Retrograde Mercury is going back into Taurus on June 2 to participate in the Solar Eclipse on June 10. This puts spotlight on the financial system which is on the verge of imploding. Mercury will resume direct motion on June 22. Sun will get out the clutches of Rahu on June 14 when it moves into Gemini.

Mars: Mars will be in Cancer June 2 – July 19, agitating people’s emotions related to home and security. It opposes Saturn in Capricorn, creating intense pressure on the governments. Exact opposition happens on July 1 with Uranus located at the mid-point, creating squares. We will likely see explosive events in the first week of July.

Collection of Retrograde Planets: Note that Pluto and Saturn are already in retrograde motion. Jupiter is turning retrograde on June 20, Neptune on June 26 and Uranus on Aug 20. Between Aug 20 and Oct 5, all the five outer planets will be in retrograde motion. We can expect big changes in the political and financial systems.

May 2021

The month starts with Mercury entering Taurus on May 1 and Venus entering Taurus on May 4. This conjunction in Taurus will provide some balance to the chaos caused by the other planets. Mars will be in Gemini this entire month agitating issues with information and media. The new moon on May 11 occurs in Aries (Krittika nakshatra ruled by Sun) starting a sharp fiery four-week cycle. Jupiter in Aquarius will start slowing down to station around 8 degrees before turning retrograde on June 20. The station degree is very close to the natal moon position in USA birth chart where moon is in the third house (communication/media). Hopefully some hidden truths will come out during this month.

Saturn will turn retrograde on May 23. This will likely agitate financial and political systems all around the world. Mercury moves into Gemini on May 25, but turns retrograde on May 29. It will come back into Taurus on June 2. After Venus moves out of Taurus on May 28, the stability factor is gone. On May 26 there is Total Lunar Eclipse occurring in Scorpio, the sign related to hidden secrets.

Apr 2021

Biggest change is Jupiter moving into Aquarius on Apr 5. Mars, which is currently in Taurus, already crossed Rahu (breaking kAla-sarpa formation) and moving into Gemini on Apr 13. During Apr 16-30 Sun, Mercury and Venus will be conjunct in Aries. So there is a big shift from earth-water energies to air-fire energies, causing powerful under currents. This will be an uneasy month.

During the Jupiter’s transit in Aquarius Apr 5 – Sep 14, masses will slowly gain power over the ruling elite. Governments and main stream media will start losing power over people, as their true agenda is exposed. Mars transit in Gemini Apr 13 – June 1, aspected by Jupiter, will trigger positive changes to communication and media, empowering people.

The new moon in Pisces marks the beginning of a new year in India. A chart can be made at the exact time of new moon to give an indication of the year ahead. This year new moon occurs at 28 degrees Pisces in the last pAda of rEvati nakshatra, indicating endings and new beginnings for the whole world.

In USA the new moon occurs on Apr 11 at 10:30 pm. Ascendant Ketu with Rahu-Mars in the 7th house indicates friction with several countries. On the positive side, happy Jupiter in the 4th house indicates that people will start setting down. New moon in the 5th house indicates major focus on children, their education and their well being.

In India the new moon occurs on Apr 12 at 8:00 am. Ascendant Taurus with Rahu-Mars, lagna lord Venus being in Aries the 12th indicates issues with hidden enemies and some losses. On the positive side, happy Jupiter in the 10th house and new moon in the 11th house indicates bright opportunities for expansion.

In China the new moon occurs on Apr 12 at 10:30 am. Ascendant Gemini. Lagna lord Mercury unhappy in Pisces conjunct the new moon indicates issues with the government. Mars-Rahu in the 12th house indicates severe losses.

Mar 2021: Explosive Release

During the past few months, energy was stuck due to kAlasarpa formation (all planets except for moon are on one side of Rahu-Ketu axis), and also due to several planets located in the heavy earth sign of Capricorn. This month there is strong Aquarius energy Mar 11-15 due to the conjunction of Mercury, Sun and Venus as well as new moon on Mar 13. Mars is conjunct Rahu in Taurus, agitating people’s anger and insecurities. Mars will break the kAlasarpa formation on Mar 27, after crossing over Rahu on Mar 26. Jupiter is zooming out of Capricorn on Apr 5. We can expect big changes happening in April, especially related to global financial system.

Feb 2021

Uranus is going to play a big role this year. It is the awakener, the master of chaos, change and innovation. There was exact Uranus-Mars conjunction at the time of US presidential inauguration on Jan 20 at noon in Washington DC, and this conjunction happened in the Aries ascendant with Moon in Aries. This arrangement indicates extremely volatile situation inside US and expansion of freedom movements. There will be an exact Uranus-Saturn square on Feb 17, indicating intense clash between the old and the new. Due to Saturn’s retrograde motion, there will be two more exact squares later this year (June and Dec). Venus enters Capricorn on Jan 27. Mercury in Aquarius is turning retrograde on Jan 30 and moving back to Capricorn on Feb 4. It turns direct on Feb 20.

The new moon on Feb 11 in Capricorn is going to a big trigger, involving seven planets – Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, MercuryR, Sun and the Moon. The new moon is happening in dhanishTa nakshatra, the star of symphony. Does it mean the world is going to come together in harmony? If it does, it would be an unexpected miracle. We have to wait and see. Another indication of prosperity this year is the transit of Rahu in rOhiNi nakshatra, Feb 13 – Sep 18 (based on true node calculation). Mars will be energizing Rahu in Taurus Feb 22 – Apr 13.

Jan 2021

Pluto re-entered Capricorn on Dec 31, and will be there for more than a decade, breaking all foundational structures. We had a preview of this when Pluto was briefly in Capricorn Feb 25 – June 29, 2020 before it returned to Sagittarius to complete it’s final six month phase there. Interestingly Jupiter followed Pluto into Capricorn during those exact four months. What a cosmic synchronicity! Note that Saturn has been in Capricorn since Jan 24, 2020, and will be there until Jan 17, 2023. Jupiter re-entered Capricorn on Nov 20, 2020 and will be there until Apr 4, 2020. There will be lots of worldwide changes during the first three months of 2021. Riots, civil wars and wars between countries are very possible. The arrangement of planets at the time of US presidential inauguration (Jan 20, noon, DC) is very interesting, with exact conjunction of Mars and Uranus in Aries, indicating an explosive surprise. The ascendant also happens to be Aries with Moon in Aries. Capricorn becomes the 10th house of government, with a conjunction of five planets – Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Pluto. Expect the unexpected!
