A Total Solar Eclipse (September
A total solar eclipse occurs on
September 1 at 9:04 GMT, and approximately it will last through 3 to 5 minutes. This eclipse will be
visible in Central Africa (Gabon, Congo, Tanzania,
Mozambique and Madagascar).
This eclipse is important since the Sun
and Moon will be within 3 degrees from Rahu, the Northern or ascending node
in the sidereal zodiac sign Leo. Consequently this eclipse, according to
Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Leo rising or
Leo 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 house during the time of eclipse.
On world scene, Central Africa may experience
an undesirable happening.
Retrograde Mercury (August 31 - September 21)
31, the planet Mercury
becomes retrograde in
It will stay retrograde until September
21. While retrograde it will return to Leo on September 10. Typically retrograde
Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays,
frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in
daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Virgo means
more frustrating periods for detail oriented people such as accountants,
researchers, bookkeepers, also for people in agriculture and forest areas,
people in small businesses and diplomats. Retrograde Mercury in Leo means more
frustrating periods for politicians, diplomats, leaders in most of the fields,
military personnel, etc., 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 in your
About 2016 US Presidential Election.........
Based on information
obtained from Astro-data Bank (Astro.Com) with Rodden rating AA, Mr.
Trump's birth details
Date: June 14, 1946
Time: 10:54 AM (EDT)
Place: Jamaica, New York (40N41, 73W48)
Secretary Clinton, no verified birth information is available.
Among the two publicly available birth times (8:02 AM and 8:00 PM) ,
none of them seem to fit her characteristics and life events satisfactorily.
Assuming the actual birth time is closer to one of these times, through the
process of rectification, I have come up with 8:10 AM as her birth time
as the basis for this analysis.
October 26, 1947
8:10 AM (CST)
Birth Place: Chicago,
Ill (41N51, 87W39)
The analysis is based on
the sidereal zodiac system with Placidus house division, and the
method of interpretation is mostly according to Vedic astrology.
was fittingly born under Leo ascendant (rising sign) as a very
independent minded person with heavy chips on his shoulders, with lot of fire
and charismatic personality. As shown in his sidereal natal chart below, the ascendant ruler Taurus Sun occupies the tenth
house, the house of profession, business, politics, fame and prestige, and thus,
making him a person whose entire life revolves around the sole purpose of
accumulating wealth. The tenth house cusp ruler, Cancer Venus, occupies
the 11th house, potentially assuring him success in any business endeavors he
Sidereal Natal Chart of Donald J Trump
addition, the most striking planetary configuration in his birth chart is the
placement of the lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu. Mr. Trump was born just a few
hours prior to the beginning of a total lunar eclipse. If he were born
during the eclipse period, the story would be entirely different and I wouldn't
be writing about him. And also, he was born during late morning hours when the
Moon was not visible, minimizing the direct influence of the eclipse.
he was born close to the eclipse. As a result, the first house ruler Sun
conjuncts the north lunar node Rahu in the tenth house and the 12th house ruler
Moon conjuncts Ketu in the fourth house. Since the materialistic Rahu
loves the tenth house, Rahu in the tenth house with a very powerful Sun (being
the ruler of the first house, yogakaraka planet) makes him
extraordinarily egoist and a wealthy professional. Furthermore, the Taurus
Uranus is with in three degrees with Rahu in the tenth house, providing him with
possibility of becoming the leader of the USA since Uranus very closely matches the characteristics of
interesting note the presence of Rahu-Uranus conjunction in both President
George W Bush and Barack Obama's natal charts. Thus, Rahu-Uranus conjunction may
be used as one of the litmus-tests to confirm a potential of becoming the
president of the USA. Therefore, it's not surprising (despite totally unexpected) that
Mr. Donald Trump became the presidential nominee of the Republican
Party in July 2016.
my opinion, typically, the axis along which the lunar nodes lie in a natal
chart, defines the axis of the major challenges in life for that person.
Thus, for Mr. Trump that axis lies through the 4th-10th house. It is clearly
evident from his life experiences that most of the ups and downs that he
experienced in his life dealt with the 4th house (real estate, home, house) and
the 10th house (profession, business, politics, etc.,). Also, Sun
(showmanship) being in Taurus ruled by Venus (celebrity) in the 10th house and
the 10th house ruler Venus in the 11th house (famous) makes him a famous
celebrity. However, according to Vedic astrology, if the first house ruler
conjuncts Rahu, then typically person has a character flaw, and invariably this
flaw eventually brings the person down. In Mr. Trump's case the first
house ruler Sun conjuncts Rahu in the 10th house with in three degrees, and
therefore despite Rahu's favorable position in the tenth house and in Taurus
sign, Mr. Trump is likely to do himself in and bring himself down.
important planetary configurations in his chart include, the placement of Virgo
(material wealth) Jupiter (5th, 8th and the 9th house ruler) in the second house
making him a person born in a large, rich and well to do family, and blessed
with wonderful children and lucky! The
4th house ruler, Leo Mars in the 12th house means he is stubborn and loves being
of Rahu and Sun in his ninefold natal chart (below) in the cardinal
fourth house on the 4th-10th axis confirms the dominance of Sun and Rahu
in his natal chart.
Ninefold Natal Chart
Uranus occupies the third, Pluto seventh and Venus second house in his ninefold natal chart.
Uranus being the unconventional planet of change occupying the
adventurous and dynamic third house aptly confirms its tenth house
strength in his natal chart. And since Uranus exhibits the
characteristics of the USA, Trump's chart seems to closely tied with the
destiny of the USA. No wonder he could successfully tap into
the psyche of this country and people.
Clinton was born
under Scorpio ascendant (rising sign). Scorpio is a fixed and
water sign ruled by fiery Mars. The
first house ruler, Cancer Mars, resides in the 9th house making her a very
independent person, who is fortunate and blessed in always having ton of
opportunities. The presence of Scorpio Jupiter (the ruler of the
second and the fifth house) makes her an optimist, matured, analytical,
lucky and popular. She is amiable, helping and caring in nature and
the same time very emotional (Cancer Mars). One of her unique
challenges in her life is to having to deal with situations where she is
forced to reconcile between the tendency of ambitious Mars to be very
possessive and self-centered and at the same time (due to presence of
Jupiter in the first house and the water (Scorpio) sign nature of being
caring and helping those who desperately need help) to deal with her
emotional nature. As a result, there are times she fails and is
sidereal natal chart
to the conjunction of the political planet Cancer Pluto with the first
house ruler Mars in the ninth house of her natal chart, her destiny
(Pluto) literally forces her towards politics. In addition, the
presence of Cancer Saturn (another political planet), the ruler of the
third (her adventurous spirit) and the fourth (life time achievements)
paves her way to politics in a natural way. Due to the disposition
of Cancer Saturn in the ninth house, she is intelligent, lawyer, enjoys
long journeys, very emotional and fortunate.
the most striking planetary combinations in her natal chart is the
presence of lunar nodes right on the first and the seventh house cusps
making her extremely powerful person. While the lunar node Rahu
(north node) on the 7th house cusp reflects her material (and therefore,
political) ambitions and achievements, the south node Ketu (due to the
presence of Jupiter in the first house) provides her with the
non-materialistic tendencies that she must accommodate in her life.
These nodes reflect her perpetual challenges she faces all through her
life making her feel not totally satisfied despite all her
important political planet, the tenth house ruler Libra Sun in the
eleventh house of her natal chart practically assures her political
prestige, fame, prosperity, very popular lead personality and
wealth. The ninth house ruler, Aquarius Moon in the fourth house
makes her intelligent, lucky, loving mother, wealthy, happy in her family
life, attached to her mother and daughter, adorable and blessed.
eighth and the eleventh house ruler, Libra Mercury, in the twelfth house
certainly is responsible for challenges that creates the perception about
her being as "untrustworthy". If Mercury rules the eighth house
and occupies the twelfth house, then it has a tendency to get in trouble,
and if not careful and aware, can get into situations where the person may
be perceived by others as untrustworthy.
Placement of the trio of the political planets (Mars, Pluto and Rahu) in
the 7th house as shown in her ninefold natal chart below conforms that
Secretary Clinton becomes the presidential nominee of the Democratic
Party. Also, note the favorable placement of Saturn in the 9th house
and Uranus in the 4th house in her ninefold natal chart, further
strengthening her natal chart from the standpoint of having potential to
become the leader of the free world.
Secretary Clinton's Ninefold
both the candidates share some important
planetary combinations in their ninefold natal birth charts. Pluto, the
planet of politics and transformation, is the key in determining success
in a political career. Both of them have Pluto in the seventh house of
their ninefold natal charts.
we begin the analyses of their respective progressive and ninefold
progressive charts for the election day I would like to recognize few
important possibilities between now and the election day.
Mr. Trump, as I pointed out earlier (and also in my last post), the solar eclipse of
September 1, 2016 might become responsible for having him to face more
difficult challenges in September. Also, according to his current Dasa
cycle he is running Rahu-Mars Dasa, and it will end by October 7, 2016, and
then a brand new Dasa cycle of Jupiter will begin. Until October 7, he
might go through the experiences which could be perceived as
"self-destructive". If he survives that period without
significant and irreversible damage and still remains in the race, he is then likely to continue his
campaign with lot less mischief. Thus, he has two "ifs"
before October 7.
Secretary Clinton, from now till September 8, 2016, the ride is certainly not
smooth. She is likely to face unforeseen challenges. But I think
she will survive them. Thereafter, I don't see any significant issues
(except perhaps about her personal life) for her in carrying out her
a result of very uncertain and unsettling period (now through October 7) for
Mr. Trump, I would like to defer my election day analysis until the next
month (September 30).
enters 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 will stay there till September 4
before it returns 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.
Although it's going to be in
a short while (June 24 - Sept 4) before it returns to Aries 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
leaders 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.
Since the characteristics of Uranus are closely tied with
that of the United States as a country, I wouldn't be
surprised if the both democratic and
republican presidential nominees go
through a painful process of conducting their campaign and may
be faced with unwanted surprises at least until September 4.
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
Mars in sidereal Scorpio with Saturn…(read below about transit of Mars in
Scorpio) not a very desirable combination for UK. However, Uranus in
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 below about the Uranus transit in Aries). But
Uranus being whimsical and
as it constantly demands change (therefore
would be very interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 -
September 4 in UK. Because Uranus returns to sidereal Pisces after
Sept 4 and stays in Pisces till April 6, 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.
transit of Mars in Scorpio......
planet Mars entered
the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio on February 20. While in
Scorpio, it turned
retrograde on April 18. With its
retrograde motion it went back in Libra on June 18. It
became direct in Libra on June 30 and then with it's direct
motion it re-entered Scorpio on July 11. It will remain in Scorpio until September 18.
Thus, except for June 18- July 11, Mars occupies Scorpio from February
20 through September 18. Saturn, being in Scorpio all
through 2016, conjuncts Mars with one degree orb during August
Scorpio being a water and fixed sign
ruled by Mars, it becomes extremely challenging for Scorpio
resident Saturn when Mars is in Scorpio. Because by nature,
Mars and Saturn do not complement each other, when Mars dominates
(being the ruler of Scorpio) Saturn is naturally going to feel
totally out of place in Scorpio. Furthermore, because
Scorpio is a water (emotional) sign, Saturn in Scorpio feels
suffocated, withdrawn and paralyzed. Due
to the presence of Mars, Saturn is very likely to go off track and
potentially become self-destructive.
As a result of this challenging
combination of Saturn and Mars in Scorpio, February 20 through
September 18 will be filled with undesirable activities that will
affect not only the Middle-East but the entire world. Some of the
manifestations of this conjunction are: terrorism, ongoing
barbaric activities, senseless killings, persecutions, pain and
suffering, violence, wars and intolerable and tragic situations
for those who cannot defend themselves. In the United States, the
Republican Party will go through a dramatic and painful experience
since Saturn represents conservative principles. Financial
markets, especially oil and energy-related markets will exhibit
tremendous volatility. Natural calamities, including extreme
weather conditions, abnormal weather patterns, earthquakes of
significant magnitude, wildfires, hurricanes, snow storms etc.,
are likely to occur more frequently. Those who are born with the
Scorpio as ascendant or with Moon in Scorpio are likely to
experience difficult period filled with challenges; but the very
same experience will likely to provide them with the opportunity
to transform their lives in a positive way (self-discovery).
President Obama and his challenges......
President Obama's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be
Sun. In addition, Moon will remain as an operating
planet for him till November 11.
During September, the retrograde Mercury remains in sidereal
Virgo (the second house of his progressive
chart) till September 10, then with its retrograde motion enters
Leo (the first house of his
progressive chart) and remains in Leo till the end of the month.
While in Leo Mercury becomes direct on September 22.
Until September 10, the favorable second house Mercury will
continue to provide him with the
opportunity to be successful in effectively governing the
country. However, after September 10, he will
have difficult time in staying focused and
avoiding the wrong company of people. As a result, it will
be a very stressful period for him for the rest of the month.
Sun is presently transiting through the
unfavorable first house of his progressive chart till September 15. And then
for the remaining
part of the month, through yet another unfavorable house (the
second house) of his progressive chart. As a result, for
the entire month, from Sun's transit standpoint, he
is likely to face with disappointment, delays, deceit, mental stress
and defeat in governing the country.
far as Moon is concerned, because it's very favorably (exalted
Moon) placed in his natal chart, despite the negative influence
of Mercury and Sun, he will successfully manage his
presidency and the popularity.
summing the influence of all the operating planets as explained above,
overall, the first ten days of September looks to be
positive, and afterwards he will still continue to have success
but at the diminishing rate and with lot of frustration.
The important challenging planetary
for September include Neptune-Saturn
(Aug 24 - Sept 21) and Rahu/Ketu-Saturn (Sept 17 - Oct 3) squares.
(Aug 24 - Sept 21) square may become responsible for a difficult time for
China and Russia from political and social stability standpoint. Both Neptune and Saturn
are very secretive and deceptive planets. As a result, covert activities
will be on rise during this period. Also, upheaval and revolutionary
atmosphere in Russia and China can not be ruled out.
The direct square of Saturn with the
lunar nodes (Sept 17 - Oct 3) means barbaric activities all around
the world are likely to increase. Terrorists are likely to be successful in
creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in Europe and Middle East is likely.
Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.
The important auspicious planetary configuration for this month
include Uranus-Saturn (Sept 7-15) ninefold trine and
Pluto-Saturn (Sept 26 - Oct 4) ninefold sextile.
The manifestation of the Uranus-Saturn
(Sept 7-15) ninefold trine maybe reflected in a good period for
religious activities all around the world. Also, this is a great time for
the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and
(Sept 26 - Oct 4) ninefold sextile may become responsible for
a better European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
The countries that are
more likely to be affected during
month are: Russia, China, USA, Europe, Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel
regions) and India.
manifestation of the Uranus-Saturn
(Sept 7-15) ninefold trine will be reflected in a good period for
religious activities in the United States. Also, this is a great time for
the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and
