Comments on last month's (June) Predictions
Date Posted: June 30, 2018

How close is special counsel Robert Mueller to close in on Trump? ......

President Trump's operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) for June will continue to be Saturn and Venus. In addition, Neptune remains operating planet until June 15, and after that the operating planets for the rest of the month, in addition to Saturn and Venus, will be Sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Rahu. As a result, the second half of June is going to be much more eventful for Mr. Trump.

During June, the retrograde Saturn will be in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh house of his progressive chart. And it will be in the 3rd house of his ninefold progressive chart till June 7th and then in the 2nd house. Venus will be in sidereal Gemini (the 1st house of his progressive chart) till June 9 and then for the rest of the month in sidereal Cancer (the 2nd house of his progressive chart).  For the first half of the month, the operating planet Neptune will be in the 9th house of his progressive chart and in the 11th house of his ninefold progressive chart.  

After June 15, as mentioned earlier, Sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Rahu will be the operating planets instead of Neptune. In his progressive chart Sun will be in Gemini (the 1st house), Jupiter in Libra (the 5th house), Uranus in Aries (the 11th house) and Rahu (the second house) in Cancer. In his ninefold progressive chart the slow moving planet Jupiter will be in 11th house until June 22 and then in the 12th house; Uranus in the 1st house and Rahu in the 6th house.

From Dasa standpoint, Saturn is unfavorable (being in the seventh house of his progressive chart) for him, but until June 7, being in the 3rd house of his ninefold progressive chart, it's favorable for him until then, But after June 7th it's not favorable till the end of the month. Therefore, while Mr. trump will likely to continue to cause a lot of stir by exhibiting immature and senseless behavior in dealing with his friends and adversaries alike, simultaneously he is also likely to get his way in moving his agenda forward and to some extent victorious over his adversaries until June 7. However, after June 7, he might get involved in direct confrontations with people that include not only his adversaries but also his family members and friends.

The manifestation of the 1st and the 2nd house resident transiting Venus will be reflected in a favorable period from his showmanship standpoint but vulnerable from dealing with women viewpoint.

Until June 15, the deceptive Neptune may become cause for he being surrounded with deceptive people and he is will likely to face with lot of issues related to the ongoing Russia probe by the special counsel, while simultaneously facing intense opposition from GOP leaders. 

After June 15, the transiting Sun will become responsible for possible health issues, humiliation, delays and disappointments. The transiting Jupiter will be in general, favorable from prestige and showmanship standpoint. The transiting Uranus may become responsible for unwanted quick swings in his moods making it difficult to effectively govern the country. And the transiting Rahu (the north lunar node) will be sort of neutral, but negatively affecting his personal life and finances.

When the planetary transits with respect to his natal chart are considered, the transiting Saturn will square his natal Neptune providing the breeding ground for deception and uncertainties in both international and domestic political dealings.

Thus, while during June, the favorable transit of ninefold Saturn until June 7, may bestow him with some political success, after June 7, especially after June 15, the challenging first house Sun and eleventh house Uranus along with the 7th house transiting Saturn in his transit chart spell a very chaotic and action filled period resulting in for yet another extremely challenging and trying month for him to deal with the ongoing Russia probe, women, suspicious and insecure people around him and in advancing his political agenda.

June 15-25:  The separation of children from their parents of migrant families at the border

Transit of Mars in sidereal Capricorn.......

One of the important astrological events of 2018 is the transit of Mars in the sidereal Capricorn. Mars enters the sidereal Capricorn on May 2, 2018 and it stays in Capricorn for more than six months till November 6, 2018.  During that stay in Capricorn, Mars turns retrograde on June 27 and then it becomes direct on August 28.  

Mars is the planet of action, energy and strength, and it becomes exalted in Capricorn.  Capricorn being the earth and cardinal sign, it's the perfect sign for Mars to explode (cardinal being the lead sign) with a tremendous strength.  And the manifestation of that energy will be reflected in the material world (earth sign) with tremendous ups and downs (ups during its direct motion and downs during its retrograde motion) that will be intensely experienced by the entire  world, especially by the military personnel (Mars being the fire sign with tremendous energy and strength), sportsmen, warriors, fighters, commanders, leaders and people in power in almost every field (especially in politics and business). Also, Capricorn being the earth sign, the sign of accumulation of material wealth, the transit of Mars through Capricorn means volatility in the financial markets.

During May 2 - June 27, we are likely to enjoy the positive energy of Mars as it begins its journey through Capricorn.  But then during June 27 through August 28, we are likely to feel the negative energy of the retrograde Mars as the ride starts becoming painful and frustrating.  Thus, during June 27-August 28, the possibility of war, violence, destruction of material wealth due to natural as well as man-made calamities, social and political uproars, financial markets coming under tremendous pressure, political leaders and business executives feeling the pains are very real. After August 28 till November 6, we are likely to go through a slow period of recovery for at least few weeks before we regain the full speed of positive energy of Mars.  

The intensity of negative energy of Capricorn Mars will be more apparent during its close square (with in three degrees) with Uranus (May 12-17; July 28 - Aug 4; Sept 15-20) and opposition with the lunar north node, Rahu (June 9-18; July 12-22; Sept 19-23).

While for those who have well placed Mars in their natal charts are likely to do well during this transit of Mars, the others will feel unbearable pain and perhaps emotional breakdowns depending on the Mars placements in their natal charts.

Retrograde Saturn  (April 18 - September 6).........

Saturn became retrograde on April 11 in sidereal Sagittarius, and is going to stay retrograde till September 6, 2018.  For those who have a well placed Saturn in their birth charts and if Saturn's period is currently in operation, then they are likely to continue to experience their positive period but at slower rate.  Usually  a better way to deal with retrograde Saturn is either put more energy in to whatever you do to work towards your goal or use this time to take pause in your outward activity and divert your energy more inward, such as reflecting on what you have been doing.  

If Saturn is not placed in your natal chart, and it is currently active as an operating planet, then it's better to lay low and not take any risk in starting a new activity or venture.  In stead, focus on things that you have postponing due to lack of time, such as cleaning that closet, work around house or read a book you always wanted to read.

On the world scene, generally, the projects that deal with expansion are likely to either stay on hold or experience sluggish progress.  In religious world, things are likely to move at frustratingly slow rate.  In the political arena what may seem like progress will turn out to be a disaster.

 

Global Predictions........

The important challenging planetary configurations for June include Rahu-Mars (June 9-18) opposition, Pluto-Uranus (May 28 - June 7) ninefold opposition, Uranus-Rahu (June 12-18) ninefold quincunx and Neptune-Saturn (June 14-22) ninefold square. 

The manifestation of the Rahu-Mars (June 9-18) opposition will be reflected in both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader.

The Pluto-Uranus (May 28 - June 7) ninefold opposition may become responsible for a unique change in the way the current Trump administration deals with other nations with respect to its Make America Great Again slogan, terrorism agenda and foreign policy matters. Expect some serious issues that the Trump administration could get tangled with.

The Uranus-Rahu (June 12-18) ninefold quincunx may become responsible for a difficult challenge for the United States in general, and the Republican Party in particular from the political crisis standpoint.  During the same time USA and China may go through a trade crisis.

The manifestation of the Neptune-Saturn (June 14-22) ninefold square may be reflected in chaotic political and financial situations in countries China and Russia during this period and the US media experiencing credibility crisis.

 

The important auspicious planetary configuration for June include Pluto-Saturn (May 26 - June 9) ninefold trine and Uranus-Saturn (June 1-5) ninefold sextile. 

The Pluto-Saturn (May 26 - June 9) ninefold trine means a good period for European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

The manifestations of the Uranus-Saturn (June 1-5) ninefold sextile may be reflected in expansion of religious activities all around the world with new vigor and energy. Conservatives will find ways to compromise with liberals on sticky issues. Democrats and Republicans will agree on more matters than the ones they disagree.  This is a good time to get those lingering bills passed in U.S. Congress and Senates. China and Russia are likely to experience some mild setbacks in their foreign policies, especially the ones that deal with the United States.

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  USA, China, Russia, North and South Korea, Europe and the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Iran and Palestine-Israel regions).   

      Natural and Man-made Calamities........

      The natural calamities like extreme weather conditions, wildfires, hurricanes, heavy rains, snow storms, air crashes as well as man made accidents are more likely to occur during June 1-7, 11-22.

      Earthquakes: Based on the Earthquake prediction model III the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on June 4, 6-8, 10, 16-22, 24-25, 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 2018.   

      There was no earthquake of magnitude seven and higher in June.

While man-made calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest, violence, accidents, and air crashes, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally intensive droughts, hurricanes or typhoons, thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires
Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

World financial markets for June begin with a mixed tone for about a week, then bearish for a week or so and then for the rest of the month markets remains mixed to slightly bullish.

It must be noted that the basis for the following predictions mainly includes the influence of the planets Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars along with the slower moving modern planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. For the ninefold analysis, the fast moving planets like Mercury, Venus, Sun, and Moon can also influence the outcome of the world markets. However, these influences, although usually insignificant, are difficult to account for as the analysis then becomes too complex to make market predictions.  Therefore, should it become necessary to account for the influence of fast moving planets the timely advanced updates whenever appropriate will be provided.

June 1-9: Mixed  

June 10-18: Bearish 

June 19-30: Mixed to Bullish
