On April 7, 2017, Uranus will enter the constellation of Aries. During 2016, Uranus was in Aries until December 29 when it retrograded into Pisces for four months. It is now in Aries until June 2015. In Vedic Astrology, planets have planetary deities, and the deity for Uranus is Prajapathi, the world creator. So we may speak of the transit (peyarchi) of Uranus (Prajapathi) to the sign of Aries.

Jupiter moves away from Rahu, beyond the orb of influence – good news. Mars and Saturn share Lordship of Scorpio (well, co-Lordship for Saturn) – interesting news. The New Moon is in Ashlesha nakshatra, ruled by Sarpa, the snake god, and Lord Siva – an opportunity for transformation. We practice a little neo-Vedic Astrology and look to the significance of the present location of Uranus, an outer planet, sometimes called upagraha.

Astronomers and scientists are excited: Juno will reach Jupiter at lunchtime on July 5 (AEST) having travelled almost 3 billion km in 5 years. Jupiter is like a time capsule of the early solar system – its inner structure will reveal how planets form. During 37 orbits Juno will study the planet’s structure, gravity and magnetic field. Looking at this event from Vedic Astrology suggests that the visit of Juno to Jupiter will present profound transformation for understanding life on Earth.

We normally do not speak of new moons, for the moon is the presiding deity of the mind and malefic whilst it is within 60° of the Sun. At this time, we are advised that there are significant challenges facing all on Earth, and as we journey from what the new moon offers to the full moon, we look to what solutions are possible and how we might utilise the planets. So the human journey to peace moves from new moon to full moon, wherein we may take up the stronger lunar energies for the good of the all.
