This week we have an exchange of 7/11 houses by Moon and Mars and both neecha and on GD. See Aries down. With the Sun also in Cancer, you really need to be cool and sensitive to others around you, above all, your partner [business or life partner] Monday-Saturday. Period.
AQUARIUS: The Sun in 6th house Cancer can cause major conflicts with partner if not careful, with a neecha Mars to boot, and Mars joining Mercury in the 7th house from Saturday and [see Aries down] thru to Aug 6 GD in Leo. The danger days to watch are: 27-28 when Mercury hits MB, and the Sun's GD Aug 13-16 in Cancer. The next is health: as both Jupiter 2/11 lord and Mercury 5/8 lord have the capacity to cause or aggravate a bunch of problems, face and neck to, chest, reproductive region, and to knees and joints. When Mars arrives on Saturday, he can also charge passion and addiction problems. Moon/Mars neecha/GD can incite/provoke enemies on the work place. Rahu in the 3rd for prowess, Ketu in the 9th for spiritual expansion and Venus-Saturn in the 5th house of fortune are the best placements this week.
PISCES: We discussed the Sun [among others] in 5th house last week: to give a militant mind, to work towards children's welfare and spiritual organizations and to be interested in healing as well as military strategy. Mars-Moon exchange [see Aries down] could cloud intellect which can manifest in extreme religious views, children could travel away from home, optimism can cause losses in speculation and other risky ventures, especially if running bad dashas/planetary periods in your natal charts. Saturn and Venus can help inner work. Watch Mercury on MB 27-28. This guy is capable of causing auto accidents and/or tensions with partner. Taken together, be careful not to argue with partner when driving. With Lagna Lord Jupiter also stuck in the 6th house take care not to hurt yourself.
