Wishing you a very happy summer solstice and fun-filled summer.

(For those who are living in the Southern HemisphereÖHappy Winter Solstice and enjoyable winter)

For sky-watchers:  Saturn being closest to the earth, itís wonderful to watch it in the evening in the South-Eastern sky soon after the sunset.  Itís largest it can get.  You wonít miss it if the skies are clear.  For those who are living in the Southern Hemisphere, try it in the North-Eastern skies.  Also, at the same time donít miss the bright Jupiter.  It would be just above you in the southern sky (northern for the southern hemisphere). 

Monthly predictions for June 2017

May 31, 2017

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

President Trump's operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Saturn, Venus, Pluto and Ketu. 

During June, the retrograde Saturn will be in sidereal Sagittarius (the seventh house of his progressive chart) till June 23, and then with its retrograde motion returns to Scorpio, the sixth house of his progressive chart. In his ninefold progressive chart Saturn will be in the 11th house until June 23 and then in the 10th house. Venus will be in sidereal Aries, the11th house of his progressive chart.  

From Dasa standpoint, while Saturn tends to be challenging for him till June 23 (making it very difficult for him to deal not only with his adversaries but his own cabinet members), it becomes favorable thereafter for making it easy to move forward possibly with his tax reform and budget agenda. Venus will be favorable for him as the 11th house resident transiting Venus provides him with the opportunities to be successful in his political endeavors. However, Pluto being in the 7th house of his progressive chart, it will join the seventh house resident transiting Saturn and both of them together (until at least June 23) will make matters more difficult for him to deal with, especially with his own cabinet members.

More importantly, when the planetary transits with respect to his natal chart are considered, the transiting Saturn will quincunx the 11th house resident natal Saturn during the entire month, and the manifestation of this particular transit may be reflected in situations that will create more friction between his administration and the House and Senate republicans.  Additionally, the transiting retrograde Saturn will oppose his natal Sun (June 8 - July 10) and as a result, he is very likely to face stiff legal challenges and will find them extremely difficult to deal with.  Also, the square of the transiting Uranus with his natal Venus will be responsible for suspicious environment in his administration, and therefore, making him intensely frustrated.

Thus, while the operating planets are not so unfavorable for him from the Dasa cycle standpoint, and the influence of transiting Saturn as explained above, may become responsible for yet another challenging month for him to deal with the people around him.

Also,  As indicated last October in my  US 2016 Presidential Election prediction,  column, as reproduced below, there was a very strong possibility that President Trump will have difficulty remaining in power and have to let that power go. 

"However, I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, 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."    

While the strong possibility of President Trump let his power go has not so far materialized, he is not out of woods yet as the transiting retrograde Saturn will oppose his natal Sun (June 8 - July 10) and his natal Rahu (July 10 - Oct 10); quincunx his natal Saturn (May 28 - June 27); and conjuncts his natal Moon (June 28 - Aug 10).  These four hits of the transiting retrograde Saturn are crucial for him to overcome until the Saturn becomes direct (August 25) and then again the transiting Saturn sweeps through the same part of the zodiac making the same four aspects (hits) till the end of the year that he must overcome.


About Uranus's entry in sidereal Aries........

One of the important planetary events of 2017 is the transit of the modern planet Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. It was stationed in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then entered Aries, and will stay in Aries 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, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in world political landscape is 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 rate 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. 

On individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage, profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.


Global Predictions......

The important challenging planetary configurations for June include Neptune-Saturn (June 14-22) ninefold conjunction, Saturn-Jupiter (June 24-29) ninefold square and Neptune-Jupiter (June 14 - July 30) quincunx.   

The Neptune-Saturn (June 14-22) ninefold conjunction may become responsible for rise in covert activities and natural and man-made calamities. Places like Russia and China are likely to experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open. 

The Saturn-Jupiter (June 24-29) ninefold square may become cause for difficulties and frustrations for organized religions around the world to carry out their agenda.  More controversies that test traditional moral values are likely to occur, and in general, religious authorities will have difficulty in keeping people happy.

The manifestation of the direct quincunx of Jupiter with Neptune (June 14 - July 30) maybe reflected in the challenges with the earthshaking ideas that the world religions are likely to face and must attend to. New controversial issues will take the central stage in the religious world. Religious leaders will be challenged as they are going to be put on the test. Those who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new and fresh ideas without losing morality, are the ones that going to be responsible to guide people. Others are likely to fade away with time. 


The important auspicious planetary configuration for June include Uranus-Rahu (June 2-24) trine.

The Uranus-Rahu (June 2-24) trine means a good period for the United States from the standpoint of economic expansion and scientific and technological advances. It also may mean drastic (and perhaps positive) changes in the government of the United States.  

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


Earthquakes: Based on the Earthquake prediction model III the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on June  2-3, 6-7, 9, 11, 13, 18, 20, 24-27, 30  Please note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT). For your convenience, the earthquake predictions for the entire year 2017 are provided at Earthquake Predictions 2017.  


Individual Predictions

Neptune-Saturn ninefold conjunction (June 14-22)

If you have a Neptune-Saturn conjunction or opposition in your birth chart, and if your current planetary operating cycle is influenced by either of these planets, then you are likely to experience a subtle but serious financial or social setback, or an unpleasant secret will be revealed to you. If you are planning to take a long distance (overseas) trip during this period, be extra careful of nasty surprises, or even being stranded in places you never dream of.  (More)
