Ketu in 1st house Aquarius
Ketu in the first house makes a very good spokesperson. Ketu in this position can create a kind of self negating attitude making it easy for him to play whatever role is assigned to him by his more determined Rahu partners. Ketu in 1st does not have to believe or even accept something in order to promote or represent it. During February and March when the Sun transits Aquarius, this could create conditions of being dominated by ones partnerships (be they romantic or business) since the 7th owner will be in 1st house. Since it’s the Sun conjunct Ketu with Mars aspecting, this dominance is likely to feel cruel, aggressive and perhaps arising as a sudden burst of energy (Sun Mars Ketu).
Ketu and Mars will both be looking at the 5th house which, by their combined heat, can cause difficulties in productive capability even though things may get off to a good start. Mercuries Transit thru Capricorn in February can also signify some lose of production or productive capability. This could also signify some political tensions.
Rahu in 7th house Leo
Rahu will bring his strong appetite into 7th house matters of durable relationship, partnership and trade after January when he moves into Leo. On one hand this position can have material benefits associated with this house which can be summed up as dealing with others, but on the other hand Rahu can disturb our most important relationships. Rahu drishti on 11th and 3rd houses will also give a boost to gainful friendships and networking circles. Jupiter conjunct Rahu in Leo should offer expansive trade networks, gain and durable prosperity since he rules the two main houses of wealth (the 2nd and 11th) and will be transiting the house of trade. Since he is, however, six houses away from his second house Sagittarius, durable prosperity might not come without fight. (Generally speaking, this sort of arrangement is likely to have something to do with why couples so often fight over their savings: 7th house is 6th from the 2nd.) By his drishti on the 11th and 3rd houses, Jupiter will promote a hopeful attitude as well as a sense of nobility in his efforts to get things started. Although some long term trade agreement is possible, you can be sure that the devil (Rahu, the greatest malefic and Raksha) will have some hand in the details. Saturn is looking at the 7th house reinforcing the idea that Capricorns could be making unsavoury trade deals, alliances, or partnership agreements.
Saturn in 10th house Scorpio (conjunct Mars)
For Capricorn’s, Saturn in 10th house signifies some occupation in foreign or isolated lands since the 1st house (your self) and 12th house (foreign places) owner is transiting the 10th house of occupation. Delays are possible in this regard since saturn rules delays, and the Mars conjunction (which will be off and on until September) suggests some frustration. However, since Mars will be in his own house occupation should continue. This is a positive placement for Capricorns who work in the oil industry, with machines, and other destructive labour related jobs. As 3rd house owner, Mars will also be bringing your effort into the 10th house.
Saturn and Mars are both looking at the 4th house, which will bring fighting and frustration into the home, and in February, Venus, the ruler of 4th house will be transiting the 12th house. It’s fair to say that home happiness will be lost in this period. In many ways, this merely reinforces the idea of going away for work, but it also suggests difficulties in the home and with parents though from this perspective things might not be so bad since Venus, the ruler of 4th house Taurus will be Transiting the 9th house from the 4th house which is the lucky house for parents and the home.
