Middle-East, Africa, Indian subcontinent, Russia and Western China.

and Moon will be within one degree from the lunar nodes, Ketu and Rahu respectively, and therefore,
it will last for a long time (6 hours). The eclipse will occur with the Southern or descending node
in the sidereal zodiac sign Gemini (zero degree Gemini) and the ascending node Rahu in Sagittarius
(zero degree Sagittarius). Consequently this eclipse, according to
Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Gemini or
rising or Gemini or Sagittarius as moon sign.
For those who have the lunar nodes in conjunction with
either Sun or Moon in their natal charts, should watch-out. It's not a good
day! Take extra precaution and avoid any sort of outdoor activity
requiring you to get out of the house.

President Obama's operating
planet Neptune continues to be in trine with his natal
Venus, and therefore, he is likely to enjoy
better political atmosphere both at home as well as with international leaders.
Meanwhile the transiting Uranus trines his natal Mercury and
sextiles natal Moon, reflecting successful international
diplomacy and good times with his family. In addition,
with Jupiter's entry in Aries, his progressive Jupiter enters
the 9th house (11th from the eleventh) house of his progressive
chart. As a result, he is likely to gain prestige, fame and
goodwill from public. However, the lunar nodes Rahu and Ketu
will be squaring his natal Mars during the second half of June. And that

challenges at home. Overall, the month of June is likely to turn
out to be a good month for him and for his administration.
