Venus Retrogression Report:
Jupiter and Saturn are two major slow moving planets and produce lasting impact on life events during their transits.
Jupiter, the planet of expansion, causes increase in activity in both good and bad areas of life.
Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to revolve around the complete zodiac.
Therefore, it takes a year approximately to transit over a sign.
In Vedic astrology, the happenings of events are observed by different Dasha systems and transit of Jupiter boosts and makes one motivated to do the things in the concerned sphere of life.
So even when the transit may be the same for persons who share the same planetary combination but the events may differ as it is deciphered by Dasha, which may differ from person to person.
Jupiter is a benefic planet and so it makes us feel good about the significance of the house or the planet to which it is transiting.
If we expect that Jupiter would bestow us with wonderful gifts, we are sure to be disappointed.
It just motivates and increases the confidence and joy in the concerned area of life.
Problems arise when we overdo, and are so confident that we ignore reality and don't think of consequences.
Jupiter gives the benefits and it is on you to grab the opportunities to reap those benefits.
Don’t wait for things to happen for us.
Instead one should be aware of the potential for doing and polishing over the details to feed our optimism.
Saturn, the planet of contraction, causes significant effects that may appear to be painful at a glance.
It takes approximately 29-30years to complete the zodiac circle.
So it takes about 2.5 years in one sign.
Since it is the slow moving planet hence its results are more effective and seen as it takes more time period to manifest its result.
Since it a slow moving planet, the things concerned with that house or planet to which it is affecting, get slowed down--we encounter delays, frustrations, and pressures.
But these times also challenge us to face reality, thereby offering us much wisdom and even freedom.
Significant decisions are often made during this transit.
Saturn is famous as a planet of depression.
But it is not the fact.
In Vedic astrology it is known as planetary clock.
When in transit, it influences the house or planet and it gets activated and produces the result.
Now it depends on your personal birth chart to which house it is signifying.
In some cases it gives benefic result too.
Since it is also significator of mass so many politicians get public recognition in its transit.
In any case Saturn is planet of maturity so it gives experiences and lessons to the house it is transiting and blesses one to learn to how to manage the affairs of that house.
That is why it is known as a great teacher also.
But such effects contribute very positively by making one more competent to face and improve one’s conditions.
Venus is the planet of love, affection, romance, sense pleasures, marriage, childbirth, art and music, wealth of property and vehicles and diseases connected with vision and the pulmonary, windy, urinary and generative systems.
Venus moves over the zodiac in about one year and thus she takes a month to cross a sign.
It has the longest length of main period of twenty years.
During her main or sub periods she promotes the areas mentioned above, the quality of these being influenced by other planets in natal and transit charts.
Used with prudence and self control, the blessings of Venus can bring much happiness and material satisfaction.
At times all of them [Jupiter, Saturn and Venus] move in “retrograde motion” [apparently backward motion].
During retrograde motion the planet passes through a point thrice that is why it is also called as triple transit.
So the event is likely to happen again or need repeated efforts in the area of concerned significance.
Then it may also happen that a delayed work may get completed or a work that may be moving gets delayed.
In any case, the happening going on that time also attains the reverse motion.
In general Saturn becomes more malefic while Jupiter and Venus become more benefic while in retrograde motion.
However the natural behavior may change with respect to any particular chart.
Rahu and Ketu:
On the other hand Rahu and Ketu are two very sensitive calculated points but they do not have any physical mass or existence.
Rahu is known as Ascending node or the Dragon’s Head.
Ketu is called as Descending Node or Dragon’s Tail.
Rahu and Ketu take about 18 years to complete the zodiac cycle thus gets 1.5 year stay in one sign.
In Vedic Astrology Rahu gives the effect of Saturn and Ketu gives the effects of Mars, the dictum states “Shani vat Rahu, Kuja vat Ketu” means Rahu acts like Saturn and Ketu acts like Mars.
Rahu is “The Giver” and Ketu is “The Taker”.
This is indicated by the house and position of these planets in the birth chart.
Rahu attracts the blessings according to the house it occupies and Ketu robs of coveted prizes.
Rahu gives much opposition and respect for the area by house where he is transiting.
There is popularity in this place with optimism and cheerfulness.
Ketu is an ambition for power but can give poor timings.
However their effects are very important and cause profound influences on the life events during their slow but always reverse motion through the zodiac.
Rahu and Ketu being always retrograde in their motion, when conjunct with other planets then the events related to the subjects matters are reversed, restored, regained and compensated.
The transit of Rahu and Ketu is very mysterious and they have strong bearings on the events.
The transit of the Nodes through the houses of the birth chart should be noticed, as they will have powerful effects.
This adds to new acquisitions according to the nature of the house.
