On Aug 1 2020, Venus moves into Gemini, Mercury moves into Cancer on 2 Aug 2020 , Sun moves into Leo on 16 Aug 2020 and on the same day Mars into Aries! If these transits weren’t enough as yet, we have the much awaited transit of Rahu and Ketu coming up on 23 September 2020. As these developments play out- Jupiter keeps its watch from Sagittarius and Saturn from Capricorn- albeit the of them being retrograde! Sure enough Saturn will commence its direction motion end September- but the interplay between Saturn and Mars will be a major cause of worry especially as Rahu lodges itself in Taurus!
The Mars transit will have a pronounced impact on weather, natural calamities and again increase accidents- Mars plays a long haul in Aries- and will be based out of Aries for a pretty long time then usual- Mars in Aries will be fourth from Saturn and needless to say will be a cause of worry- Social unrest- discord between administrators and society will seem to go on the way things are playing out across societies the world over! The only saving grace being the limited check by Jupiter through its fifth aspect on Mars which may be the only silver lining through the months until Jupiter assumes direct motion!
Rahu’s transit will cause sudden incidents and sudden spikes in consumption patterns of luxuries as markets begin to open up and this will once again bring forth the ugly divide between the societies the world over! Societies will see their finest and darkest hour live side by side through the Rahu transit and the the first three months will be every sharp and evident! Industries related to travel, hospitality, beverages, wellness, healing will eventually see picking up of business and orders! Things will start to improve for this sectors from November and these industries will create enough confidence so that as economies begin to open up more and more businesses are again embraced by customers and the global machinery is put back in action!
Closer home-India; Rahu transits through the first house, Mars will play its part transiting the 12th house, Jupiter transits the 8th house and Saturn the 9th house of India’s chart. There will be again a rise of incidents pertaining to external threat to the nation and the same, will be no doubt addressed with resolve. Agriculture and Industrial outlook will continue to be stressed for much of the year. Diplomatically, India will have to re-assess its approach and put in more efforts to ensure that no unwanted confusion or misunderstandings are allowed to creep into strong alliances that India has! Price rise, unemployment and sluggishness of the the economy will stay pretty much until the end of the year!
Individually, one needs to check where the transits are happening, which houses and what is the operating dasha and antradhas during this time- A major dasha of a benefic planet will be able to safeguard much of malefic impact of a negative transit- however if there is a reinforcement of negative impact- then due care and precaution must be taken with regards to the signification of the house where the transits are happening and the houses which are getting aspected through the transits! As much as possible avoid any major decisions until November- unless Jupiter becomes direct! Allow Rahu to whisper what it wants to – during these first three months- that will basically set the tone for the coming 18 months!
Stay humble, Stay wise, Stay grounded and Pray- this is what these transits are telling humanity for now!
