your birth chart, and have current operating cycles influenced by one of these
planets, then you are likely to experience instability caused due to sudden change

to anything new during this period and stay low key.

Uranus-Saturn quincunx (July 26 - Aug 6)
The occurrence of Saturn-Uranus ninefold quincunx is
not good for you if you have such quincunx or square in your birth chart. In

shown in your natal chart. You should avoid taking any kind of
risk at any cost during this period. Such quincunx can make things very
