3.5 Transit Results of Planets

3.5.1 As brought out earlier, in Vedic astrology, transits with respect to natal Moon is given preference over other reference points. However the effects indicated by the birth chart and the position of the planets at birth are the basic structure over which the transit works. The nature and the strength of planets in the birth chart is the vital point. But the transit movements of planets also exert considerable influence in the day-to-day life of natives. The benefic results of transit with reference to natal/ radical Moon are as given below:

1. Some astrologers consider the benefic places of Rahu & Ketu similar to that of Sun.

2. Jupiter is said to have mixed results when in Kendra (4th, 7th or 10th places) from Moon.

3. Mars, Saturn, Rahu & Ketu are great malefics in transit as they indicate benefic results only in three places each.

4. The Sun is next in malevolence as it has only four benefic places with mixed results in 4th & 10th place.

5. Venus is the great beneficiary having benefic results in nine places, followed by Jupiter who has five benefic places with three mixed places.

6. Out of 108 places (9 planets x 12 houses), only 42 places from natal Moon are benefic places. Thus transit in general indicates malefic/ difficult periods.

7. In 11th house from natal Moon, all planets give benefic results.

3.5.2 The transit results of various planets in various signs from Moon sign or Janam Rashi will to a large extent depend on the nature & strength of the planet in the birth chart. However these are given below in brief;

1st House or Janam Rasi Transits
The Sun: It indicates worries, fever, severe headache, head injury, danger from fire/ electricity, apoplexy, false accusations, restless temperament, separation from family in shape of transfer/ travel or conjunctivitis.
