In Part 1, we discussed the general energy for Jupiter in Libra for everyone with this transit having an impact until Oct. 11, 2018.

In Vedic astrology transits are often counted from the Moon because they impact the mind most but I find that transits from the ascendant are better at predicting material existence and even transits from the Sun should not be ignored for  the same reason for their impact on career and the material world.

When malefics like Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu reside in Libra or aspect Libra I your natal chart or when they impact Libra in transit as Mars will do so Nov. 30-Jan. 17th, then the darker side of the transit may manifest.

Uranus continues to aspect Libra all year and exactly into Sept. 27thth . Uranus onto Jupiter is a bit annoying and disruptive  but it may prevent your life from becoming too static and if you go with it, it will help you be truly alive.  This transit will force you to release yourself from obligations that have limited you in the past.  It could create a sudden break from a job or relationship that might create a great sense of freedom.  Release yourself from those obligatory relationships that are not serving you and move on.
