Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous 2017

One of the biggest stories for 2017 is the transit of Uranus in sidereal Aries.  After entering for a few months in Aries during June 24-September 4, 2106, Uranus with its retrograde motion returned to Pisces. Now on April 6, 2017 it will enter into sidereal Aries again and stay there for the next seven years or so.  

Uranus being the planet of change will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for independent, ambitious, energetic and impulsive Uranus, the changes in world political landscape are going to be tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries. The people who are most affected by this transit are military personnel, business and political leaders.  In scientific and technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes; and emerging new ideas will find their way into innovations and discoveries.  The scientific and technological growth will rise at a very rapid pace.  A new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on world order will certainly transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to.

The challenging aspect of Uranus transit in Aries is the painful transformation of the material world. The first couple of years, especially for the United States, will be filled with undesirable and chaotic activities that are required for human evolution to move forward with a new direction. Some of the manifestations of this transit are: violence,  senseless killings, persecutions, wars and intolerable and tragic situations for those who cannot defend themselves, occurrences of rising tension between the USA and Russia as well as that between the USA and China. Financial markets will exhibit tremendous volatility. Natural calamities, especially wildfires, abnormal weather patterns, earthquakes of significant magnitude, unbearable summer months, etc., are likely to occur more frequently. 

As indicated last October in my  US 2016 Presidential Election prediction,   a very likely scenario, as reproduced below, still exists. 

"However, I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, look at the destiny of the United States, which in my opinion is very much dependent on the transiting Uranus. And because the retrograde Uranus being temporarily back in the sidereal Pisces and will not return to sidereal Aries (the cardinal fire sign) until April 2017, there's a strong possibility that the election outcome may not matter come April 2017.  Without being sensationalizing and dramatizing the future of the United States, I think that when Uranus returns to sidereal Aries in April 2017 it will certainly and drastically change the political landscape. As a result, it's very likely that the person who will be the leading the world's powerful nation then as the president of the USA will be a different one." 

The next important planetary transit is that of Saturn.  On January 24, Saturn will enter into sidereal Sagittarius.  It will remain in Sagittarius till June 22 before it returns to Scorpio via its retrograde motion and it will stay in Scorpio until October 25.  Then it reenters sidereal Sagittarius and remains there till January 23, 2020. 

Sagittarius being the fire and mutable sign, for the next two and half to three years, Saturn will strongly influence the world psyche and world religions. Philosopher, pioneers, scientists and reformers will shape the future of the world. Those who have Saturn in Sagittarius will see their lives transformed to a new level due to a drastic change (mostly at emotional and psychological level) in their perspective about the world around. In my opinion, it's going to be a very positive and exciting two and half years for those who have dominant Saturn in their birth chart and have Pisces, Aquarius, Libra, and Cancer as their natal ninefold ascendant. 

In the next two and half to three years, on the world political scene, countries like India and Pakistan will make news headlines. Religious leaders, reformers, philosophers and scientists will likely to further transform the world with their successful, creative, pragmatic and productive activities.  

The transit of the north lunar node Rahu in sidereal Cancer (and that of the south lunar node Ketu in sidereal Capricorn) occurs on August 20, 2017.  Because of the trine aspect of the lunar node Rahu with Uranus and Saturn, and the sextile aspect of Rahu with Jupiter during June-October period, the influence of the lunar nodes will result into a flow of positive energy that we all can collectively benefit from, due to the simultaneous collective progress in both the material and spiritual (non-material) worlds.  Those who have well placed lunar nodes in their charts and have Taurus, Aquarius or Virgo as their ninefold (Navamansa) ascendant are likely to experience a very positive year.   

The good news is that while some of the chaotic events dominate the news, the worldwide spiritual expansion will continue to provide the light for transformation of humanity as a whole.  In a very subtle way the ongoing spiritual expansion is likely to eventually transcend the world beyond the normal norms such as religion, race and perhaps nations despite the rise of populism and protectionism. 

Jupiter transits in sidereal Virgo until September 12, 2017.  Since Virgo is a mutable and earth sign, Jupiter's transit will likely be responsible for increased material growth while righteousness and compassionate activities taking the backstage. 

Advances in technology and sciences will absolutely be phenomenal due to the favorable placement of the modern planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.  The major scientific and technological breakthroughs in fields of medicine, biotechnology, information technology and space science will therefore be remarkable. 

Thus, while the uncertain and painful manifestations of the Uranus's transit in Aries will dominate the events, simultaneously, in a very subtle way, the year 2017 will continue to transform the world to a new level, a necessary step as a part of our collective spiritual growth.

I will be speaking on Vedic astrology (Interpreting a Vedic chart) and also, presenting earthquake prediction research work at the upcoming NCGR (National Council for Geocosmic Research) 2017 National Conference in Baltimore during February 16-20, 2017.  

 

About President Elect Donald Trump and his challenges......

Presently President elect Trump's operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) are Saturn and Venus. 

During January, Saturn  remains in sidereal Scorpio (the sixth house of his progressive chart) until January 24 and then during the last week of the month it will be in the seventh house of his progressive chart.  Venus will be in sidereal Capricorn (the eighth house of his progressive chart) and sidereal Aquarius (the ninth house of his progressive chart).  While Venus is favorable for him from political activities standpoint, the Saturn may become responsible for rising friction between him and his adversaries during the last week of the month.

In addition, when the planetary transits with respect to his natal chart are considered, the transiting Saturn (his operating planet) will be opposing his tenth house resident natal Rahu (North lunar node) from December 26 through January 12. It wouldn't be surprising if he manages to put himself in a very troublesome and self-destructive type situation during this period.  Also, the transiting Saturn will be going over his fourth house resident Moon and Ketu (South lunar node) during the the same period, and the manifestation of this particular transit may be reflected in a very painful family crisis that he must deal with.  

Furthermore, the transiting Saturn will be opposing his tenth house resident Sun (the ruler of the first house) from January 15 through February 2.  This transit may become responsible for a rocky start of his presidency.

Thus, while the operating planets are mostly favorable from the Dasa cycle standpoint, the influence of transiting Saturn as explained above, may become responsible for an extremely difficult month for him to deal with his political challenges.

Saturn's entry into the sidereal Sagittarius (January 24).......

On January 24, Saturn enters the sidereal zodiac sign Sagittarius, and it will remain in Sagittarius till June 22, 2017 before it returns to Scorpio via its retrograde motion and stays in Scorpio until October 25.  Then it reenters sidereal Sagittarius and remains there till January 23, 2020.

Sagittarius being the fire and mutable sign, for the next two and half to three years, Saturn will strongly influence the world psyche and world religions. Philosopher, pioneers, scientists and reformers will shape the future of the world. Those who have Saturn in Sagittarius will see their lives transformed to a new setting due to a drastic change (mostly at emotional and psychological level). In my opinion, it's going to be a very positive and exciting two and half years for those who have dominant Saturn in their birth chart and have Pisces, Aquarius, Libra, and Cancer as their natal ninefold ascendant. 

In the next two and half to three years, on a world political scene, countries like India and Pakistan will go through a period of intense conflict. Religious leaders, reformers, philosophers and scientists will likely to further transform the world with their successful creative and productive activities.  

About Jupiter and Saturn Sextile......(January 1-22)

Jupiter-Saturn sextile is favorable for those who have such sextile in their natal charts.  A proper balance between the optimism and conservatism will protect you from becoming over optimistic (or aggressive) as well as over protective.  If you have such sextile in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you are likely to enjoy this period with full vigor and success as it would seem to come to you naturally. So enjoy! 

On a collective level, religions around the world will enjoy their activities with positive experiences.  People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

About Brexit.....

Personally, I don’t put a lot of stalk in the chart of a country since before the inception time of the chart the land existed.  Instead, I look at the characteristics of the zodiac signs and planets associated with that land and the planetary transits. 

In my opinion, UK is very closely tied with the sign Aries, a cardinal and fiery sign ruled my mighty Mars, and where Sun gets exalted.  This is clearly reflected in the way Briton dominated the world in last few centuries.  

Uranus in Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and also Aries (ruled by Mars) being an extremely independent sign…this combination may prove to be very positive for UK.  But Uranus being whimsical and as it constantly demands change (therefore, unsteady) it had been interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 - September 4 in UK.  Because, after September 4, Uranus returned to sidereal Pisces and will stay in Pisces till April 6, 2017 a possibility of reversal of Brexit (which may very well be short lived) exists! Let us see how Briton evolves during next few months.  It will be a glimpse or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.

Global Predictions......

The important auspicious planetary configuration for January include Pluto-Uranus (Jan 1-Mar 13) ninefold trine and Saturn-Jupiter (Dec 1 - Jan 22) sextile. 

The manifestation of the Pluto-Uranus (Jan 1 - March 13) ninefold trine may be reflected in an extraordinary time for technological discoveries and inventions.  Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this period. For the United States, in general, this period is going to be remarkable and successful.

The Saturn-Jupiter (Dec 1 - Jan 22) sextile is very positive for religions as they are likely to enjoy their activities with rewarding experiences. People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  The United States, Europe and Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions).  (More)  

Earthquakes: Based on the Earthquake prediction model III the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on January  1, 12, 21, 24-25, 30-31. Please note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT). For your convenience, the earthquake predictions for the entire year 2016 is provided at Earthquake Predictions 2017

 

Individual Predictions

Retrograde Mercury (December 19 - January 8) 

On December 19, the planet Mercury became retrograde in sidereal Sagittarius. It will stay retrograde in Sagittarius until January 8. Typically retrograde Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius means more frustrating periods for explorers, pioneers, leaders in religious and academic area, researchers, and astronomers. This is the time not to start a new project or venture, but rather reflect on what's been done so far.  Also, this is the best time to cleanup that closet and do other chores that you have been postponing due to lack of time.

In addition, if you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart and if Mercury is currently your operating planet, then you are more likely to experience the pronounced effects of retrograde Mercury during this period with respect to matters signified by the house it's transiting through in your progressive chart.

Saturn-Jupiter sextile (Nov 28 - Jan 22)

Jupiter-Saturn sextile is favorable for those who have such sextile in their natal charts.  A proper balance between the optimism and conservatism will protect you from becoming over optimistic (or aggressive) as well as over protective.  If you have such sextile in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you are likely to enjoy this period with full vigor and success as it would seem to come to you naturally. So enjoy!  (More)
