Transits for the week of February 27th-March 4th 2012.

Jyotish (Vedic astrology) predates Western astrology and many consider it to be more precise and accurate. My weekly updates are based on your Jyotish rising sign, but could be viewed from your Jyotish Sun or Moon sign as well as your Navamsa. As always, individual birth chart and chart specific details will modify an individual’s experience. For more information about your Jyotish rising sign, contact me here.


Surya (Sun) in Aquarius.

Chandra (Moon) waxing and transiting Aries, Taurus (exalted the 28th & 29th), Gemini and Cancer.

Mangal (Mars) in Leo, retrograde.

Guru (Jupiter) in Aries.

Shukra (Venus) sandhi (in the gap) on the 27th. Transiting into Aries February 28th. Venus is starting a new trip around the zodiac.

Sani (Saturn) exalted in Libra, retrograde.

Budha (Mercury) in Aquarius.

Rahu in Scorpio, debilitated.

Ketu in Taurus, debilitated.


Aries: Though this could be a powerful week for you, watch your emotions and your speech in the beginning of the week. Learn the art of conversation. Some new clarity and insight may come to you from your inner depths- especially from your childhood. This is a time to learn and grow in terms of relationships and Self. Clean your house and re-kindle self passion.

Taurus: You are becoming more intuitive and refining your life. This is a time of radical self-care in terms of health and longevity. You’re career is a focus for you this month. Clean and spruce up your bedroom this week. Watch for emotional bursts mid week as well as creative inspiration.

Gemini: This is a lucky month for you- especially as it pertains to career and your external focus. Make hay while the sun shines. Your focus is on your enlightenment and higher knowledge. Don’t neglect your health. Look for vivid dreams and deep, intuitive insights early in the week.

Cancer: You are growing on the inside, give your self credit for unraveling, even if it feels slow. Your inner work right now pertains to the heart and relating. Watch your mouth and how you speak! This is a good month for your career and meeting the right people. The first part of the week is especially dynamic for you. Work it.

Leo: This is a time of self-actualization, materially and spiritually. Use your innate dynamism to cultivate new growth, new experiences and a deeper connection to pure knowledge. Relate through communing- verbally or intuitively. Watch your emotions early in the week and get deep rest in order to recharge.

Virgo: You are digesting and healing. Slow and steady wins the race. Some of you are getting pushed out of your comfort zone. It is a huge time of transformation and processing for you. Allow your self to seek help from unusual sources and trust in your blossoming. A lot of deep learning is happening, see it as your medicine.

Libra: Fortunately, Saturn is your friend! Though he is retrograde now (and doing funny dances between Libra and Virgo until August) your work still pertains to self-growth, self-reliance, self-inquiry, self-development, self, self, self. Take the bull by the horns! You are learning how to relate to others in new ways, bring this awareness back onto the Self! There could be a powerful flash of insight early in the week. Your early childhood should be a point of inquiry and exploration. That’s where all your answers lie.

Scorpio: Your outer depends on inner, as you are well aware! Your passionate self is finding new channels to unleash it self. Examine your words, learn from your inner child, seek new ways to relate to others. You are an expert at finding new meaning in the mundane, this week, seek new meaning in the extraordinary. Your dreams are becoming reality.

Sagittarius: This is a time of intellectual blossoming. Make this growth be beautiful. Find new meaning in creativity and art. You may even find that it heals you. You may feel like shying away from the occult or metaphysical, but sorry, for you, doing something out of your comfort zone is essential. Thinking, rather than doing, is not an option. This is a time to move things- both inner and outer.

Capricorn: Your heart is full. Full of passion, transformation, poetry, thoughts and determination. You are going in to some deep territory. Remember to wear a life jacket and bring a flashlight. Also, don’t forget to assist your Self, before assisting another. Refine the outer plan. Then refine it some more. You are discovering how to re-create your self right now and how to make this an offering.

Aquarius: Your outer world may be crumbling, but see the silver lining. You are creating a life worth living, and you are attracting the right people to be involved. The truth lies in your inner courage. Over turning every rock, looking at every shadow and boldly going where you have not dared to go before is pertinent. Make it your job. Mid week makes this obvious, then gets refinement.

Pisces: It may seem hard for you to imagine living outside of a dream-state in waking reality, but learning self-reliance is utterly important right now, and this is done by acting, not sleeping. Though it may seem utterly tedious, now is the time to promote your self and find a new sense of courage in life.  You are digesting some really heavy things right now. Digest your childhood, relationships, passions, creativity and words. Watch out for heart burn.
