Planets Transit 2018


Planetary transits are very significant in Vedic astrology because they are the major means of predicting the changes and developments in life. Nine key planets are considered in Vedic astrology which are: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. While others are physical planets which are visible with naked eye, Rahu and Ketu are two shadow planets which are actually two sensitive points of Moon’s orbit which intersects with that of Earth’s ecliptic path. The descending node is known as Ketu and the ascending node as Rahu. Each of the 12 zodiac signs has a key influencing planet which is called the Lord of that zodiac sign. Mars is the Lord of Aries and Scorpio, Venus is of Taurus and Libra when Pisces and Sagittarius are governed by Jupiter. Sun is the Lord of Leo and the Moon is of Cancer. Saturn rules Aquarius and Capricorn when Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury. A particular planet’s positioning in a zodiac sign during its natural course of transit would have some generalized implications but those are not very relevant when we look at an individual’s horoscope reading. Astrologers have studied the implications of these planetary transits on the lives of different zodiac natives for long. This knowledge is the basis for an expert astrologer’s predictions and suggestions. Astrology as a science has a lot to do with data analysis and also permutations and combinations of the effects which different planetary positions at an instance can bring on in a person’s life. While making a prediction, an expert astrologer cannot exclude other aspects and just take the planetary transit into consideration because some aspects can be nullified, amplified or overshadowed by other aspects. Here in this section astroYogi astrologers have provided you with information about the major Planetary Transits of 2018.
