Monthly Prediction for
transit in the sidereal zodiac Leo (which began on July 13)
July 13, Jupiter left (sidereal) Cancer and entered the next zodiac sign, Leo.
Jupiter's transit from one zodiac sign to the next occurs, on average, once a
year. Leo being a fixed and fire sign ruled by friendly Sun, Jupiter in Leo has
a tendency to enhance material prosperity of those who have well placed and
connected Sun and Jupiter in their birth charts while others who have
unfavorably placed Jupiter with respect to Sun are likely to
experience their prosperity diminish. In general, transit of Jupiter in Leo is
positive. For one thing, material prosperity around the world is likely to expand. (It must be noted that despite Jupiter's positive influence on world
material prosperity, effects of other planets should also be taken into account to
assess the net result or effect). In addition, the influence of the leaders in all and every field will shape the future direction of our social evolution
through the material, philosophical and spiritual debate. In general, the
Leo Jupiter is known to be responsible for world material and wealth expansion. So from that
perspective expect some positive economic changes during this period and welcome
the Jupiter's entry in Leo.

have Libra, Cancer, Aries, Aquarius and Sagittarius as their natal ninefold (Navamansha)

July 25, the planet Venus became retrograde in its
motion in sidereal zodiac sign Leo. With
its retrograde (backward) motion Venus enters the sidereal Cancer on August 14
and then it becomes direct in Cancer on September 6. Venus becomes
retrograde about once every 19 months, and stays retrograde for about six weeks.
In general, a retrograde Venus means a very challenging period for women,
marriages, home life, lovers, entertainment industries. Expect the divorce
rates to peak, fighting between spouses to intensify, and delays, frustrations,
and misunderstandings to take a center-stage in domestic matters. In particular,
while the Leo retrograde Venus means challenging period for lead personalities
in entertainment field and women at high places, the retrograde Cancer Venus
also means emotional breakdown for Cancer dominated individuals. If you
have a dominating Venus in your birth chart, and if your current planetary cycle
influences your life via Venus then you are more likely to experience the
effects of the retrograde Venus till September 6. The
lead entertainers like lead actors, actresses,
musicians, comedians, movie directors and producers may find themselves in a
miserable situation during the retrograde Venus period especially if they are
currently being influenced by Venus through their current progressive cycles.

President Obama's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Mercury and
Sun. During August, Mercury stays in
sidereal Cancer (and in the 12th
house of his progressive chart) till August 4, then it enters
the sidereal Leo (in the 1st house of his progressive chart), and on
August 23, it moves in sidereal Virgo where it remains till the end of the month.
Since the twelfth house Mercury
is not favorable (slow and agonizing period with few possible
setbacks) for him,
until 4th of August, he is likely to be frustrated with
Congress, especially with respect to the Iran deal. He may
experience insulting treatment by the media. Furthermore, during
Aug 5-23, since the first house Mercury is not that favorable
either, he will have to deal with people who are likely to
cheat on him. In addition, his position on some
of the important issues will likely to perceived as
vacillating. However, during the last eight days
(July 24-31) of the month, the second house Mercury, despite
his continued stressful situation, may turn out to be
positive for him from the standpoint of having success in
carrying out his agenda.
The other planet, Sun is presently transiting through the
house of his progressive chart till Aug 17. And then for the remaining
part of the month,
through the first house of his progressive chart. As a result, until
Aug 17, he will have real tough time dealing with his adversaries (6th
house) and he is likely to experience some disappointment and few setbacks in carrying out his
agenda. For the remaining part of the month, Sun being
in the first house of his progressive chart, he will
continue to have real tough time as he will be filled with
anxieties in dealing with delays, fear and worries.
