President Elect Donald Trump and his challenges......
President elect Trump's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) are Saturn and
During December, Saturn remains in sidereal Scorpio (the
sixth house of his progressive
chart) and Venus in sidereal Capricorn (the eighth house of his
progressive chart). Both of these planets are favorable
for him from political activities standpoint.
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 Uranus from December 2 through December 19 within a
degree orb. This would mean there's a strong possibility of dramatic changes
and outcomes with respect to his political agenda. A possibility of
him facing insurmountable political challenges is also very likely during this
addition, the transiting Saturn 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.
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.
while the operating planets are 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 political challenges.
About Planetary aspects of Jupiter,
Saturn and Uranus..........
One of the major planetary
evens during December is the Uranus-Jupiter (December 18 -
January 1) opposition, Uranus-Saturn (December 16 - January 1)
trine and the Saturn-Jupiter (December 1 - January 22) sextile.
While the trine and sextile aspects are inherently positive, the
Uranus-Jupiter opposition aspect, in a short term, maybe very
chaotic but in a long term, collectively, very
While Jupiter deals with outward and material things,
influence on us is very sudden and with intensity. Jupiter-Uranus opposition occurs
once (actually 2-3 times with in that year period due to their retrograde
motions) in about 16 years. If you have
such opposition in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these two planets
influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you are certainly going to
experience an extreme transformation (irreversible change) in your beliefs and moral
values that you have been attached to. This period is challenging and of
transformation. If you
overcome the challenge, it's time for marching ahead with a
quantum step in the process of self discovery (or self evolution).
On the world scene, world religions are likely to be
challenged with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. Those religious
leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new
and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our
religious world to a new level. Others will fade away with time. The new age
philosophers are likely to emerge as lead contemporary philosophers.
Because the characteristics of Uranus are closely reflected with
the characteristics of the United States this is one of the most
important period for the United States, and as a result, I would
expect a tremendous interest in debating (or reconsidering the
values of) the social norms of morality and thereby a possible
transformation of our social norms as we collectively further
evolve as a human race.
This is very good period for those who have
Uranus-Saturn trine in their natal charts, and one of these two planets are
operating though the current cycle. Depending on the houses involved
expect some real positive development in your life.
On a collective level, this is a good period for
religious activities all around the world. A trine in Vedic astrology is
always considered very auspicious due to the aligning of
positive energy of the planets involved in the trine. As
far as the United States is concerned, Uranus represents liberal
values and Saturn conservative principles. Therefore, this
period provides a marvelous opportunity for these two energies
come together in a positive way.
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 Uranus's entry
in sidereal Aries ........
of the important planetary events of 2016 is the transit of the modern planet
Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. Uranus entered sidereal Aries on June 24, and it stayed there till September 4
before it returned to Pisces due to its retrograde motion. It will
station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will return to Aries, and
will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so.
it was in
a short while (June 24 - Sept 4) before it returns to Aries again next year, 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.
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.
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.
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
Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and Aries
(ruled by Mars)
being extremely independent sign…this combination may produce very
positive for UK. (read above about the Uranus's transit in Aries). But
Uranus being whimsical and
as it constantly demands change (therefore
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.
