Planetary Transits 2024

What is Planetary Transits

Planetary transits are the movements of planets through the zodiac signs, which can have various effects on the individual and the world depending on the birth chart and the current planetary positions. In Vedic astrology, this movement is called “Gochar”. Each planet has its own speed and time of motion around the Sun and the transit time varies from planet to sign. During the transit, the planets may become retrograde or direct, which is also indicated in the transit chart.

The transit of the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are considered important in Vedic astrology as they can bring significant changes in life. All planets transit from Aries to Pisces in a clockwise direction except Rahu and Ketu, who transit from Pisces to Aries counterclockwise. When a planet transits from one zodiac sign to another, it can bring significant benefits or malefic changes and challenges, which can be overcome by understanding the impacts of the transit accordingly.

Here is a table that shows the time it takes for each planet to transit through a sign:
