transit in the sidereal Scorpio (October 11)........
October 11,2018, Jupiter leaves (sidereal) Libra and enters the next zodiac sign,
Jupiter's transit from one zodiac sign to the next occurs, on average, once a
year. Jupiter will stay in Scorpio till March 27, 2019 and then enter
Sagittarius and briefly stay there until April 25 (just about a month) and then
return to Scorpio and stays in Scorpio until November 5, 2019. Scorpio being
fixed and water sign ruled by friendly Mars, Jupiter in Scorpio has
a tendency to enhance material prosperity of those who have well placed and
connected Mars and Jupiter in their birth charts. For those who have Jupiter's
placement in their natal chart more inclined towards non-material aspects of
life, Jupiter in water sign Scorpio is likely to help them evolve spiritually. In general, transit of Jupiter in
positive. For one thing spiritual prosperity around the world is more likely to expand. (It must be noted that despite Jupiter's positive influence on
spiritual prosperity, effects of other planets should also be taken into account to
assess the net result or effect). In addition, the influence of spiritual
leaders, social reformers
and in general, people that deal with philanthropy and philosophy are likely to
take lead in shaping the future direction of human evolution
through the philosophical and spiritual debates. Being in the challenging water
sign Scorpio, Jupiter's journey through Scorpio will be marked with painful
transformation. In general, the Scorpio
Jupiter is known to be responsible for world spiritual transformation and expansion. So from that
perspective expect some positive spiritual changes during this period and welcome
the Jupiter's entry in Scorpio.
individual levels, for those who have dominant Jupiter in their birth charts and
have Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus, Cancer or Libra as their natal ninefold
ascendant are likely to experience a very positive twelve months period.
of Uranus with Lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu (Sept
29 - Dec 29).......
of October, November and December are likely to turn out to be
extra-ordinarily chaotic, violent and painful for the USA, especially from
politics and social unrest standpoint (as evidenced by the recent Supreme
Court nominee hearings about sexual allegations) as the lunar nodes (Rahu and
be squaring Aries- transiting Uranus during these months. This is a long three month
period due to retrograde Uranus moving almost at the same speed as the
backward moving lunar nodes. And because Uranus happens to be the planet
of USA and lunar nodes being Karmic, it's likely
to be filled with lot of anxieties and uncertainties culminating into the
capitulation of the current state of politics in the United States as the
national Karma is going to be worked out during this long three month
light of President Donald Trump's achievements and challenges so far, in my
opinion, he is the symbol of the current state of the American public sentiment
and the divide.
Despite all the challenges, chaos and his defiance of the established norms, the
reason he is still in power is solely due to the strength of his tenth house
Rahu-Uranus conjunction in his natal chart representing the powerful force
(support of his solid base that totally shares his view of the world) and of
entanglement of his destiny with the country's destiny. Now with Uranus
squaring the lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu, his challenges are likely to multiply
manifold during these three months.
question would then be "would he survive?". My
short answer to this question is "Most likely not". If he does
(representing, for better or worse, the karmic force of the destiny of the
USA), then the manifestation of his survival would certainly be reflected in
the strength of his tenth house Rahu-Uranus conjunction in his natal chart
representing the powerful force (support of his solid base that shares his view
of the world) of entanglement of his destiny with the country's destiny.
I wouldn't be surprised if on one the fine mornings during 2018 or early 2019
we wakeup with his tweet of quitting his job or resignation or by legally being
removed from the White House due to the fatal Sun-Rahu conjunction in the tenth house
of his natal chart.
About President Donald Trump and his challenges......
operating planets (the planets that presently influence
him most) for October continue to be Saturn and Venus.
In addition, Mercury will be his operating planet till November 25,
October, Saturn will be in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh
house of his progressive chart, and it will be in the 1st house of his ninefold
progressive chart till October 17th and then in the 2nd house of his ninefold
progressive chart. Venus will be in sidereal Libra (the 5th
house of his progressive chart) and it becomes retrograde on October 6, and Mercury will be in sidereal
Virgo (the 4th house of his
progressive chart) till October 6, in sidereal Libra (the 5th house of his
progressive chart) till Oct 26 and then in sidereal Scorpio (the 6th house of
his progressive chart) for the remaining part of the month.
From Dasa standpoint, Saturn
continues to be unfavorable (being in the seventh house of his progressive chart and in the first house of his ninefold progressive
chart till Oct 17 and then in the 2nd house) for him.
Therefore, Mr. trump will likely to continue to be abrasive and cause a lot of stir by exhibiting immature and
senseless behavior in dealing with his friends and adversaries alike. He will
continue to be haunted by Russia probe. He will even get involved in direct
confrontations with people that include not only his adversaries but also his
family members and friends.
The manifestation of the
resident transiting Venus will be reflected in a favorable period for him from his
showmanship standpoint and solid support from his base at least until Oct 6.
However during its retrograde period (Oct 6 onward) Venus may become
detrimental to his showmanship performance, probably due to his dealing with
females or female issues. Also, for the entire month,
he might get involve with women for the wrong reason and become frustrated as
Mercury in the 4th house of his progressive charge is good for his personal life until
October 6, but then during Oct 6-26, being in the 5th house Mercury becomes
unfavorable for him, especially with regard to dealing with females, as he will be creating more enemies and
operate under fear of losing his presidency, humiliation, and disappointments
during that time.
In addition, as
described under the squares of Uranus with the lunar nodes (above) the
transiting Rahu will be in square with the transiting Uranus till the end of
the year, and Rahu and Uranus being in conjunction in the 10th house of his
natal chart, his challenges are likely to multiply
manifold during the next three months.
Thus, during October,
both the transit of Saturn and the ninefold Saturn are unfavorable, especially
the ninefold Saturn (being in the first and the second house of his progressive chart). While Venus
is partly favorable for him from his showmanship standpoint, the transiting Saturn
and the transiting Uranus squaring the transiting lunar nodes spell
a troubling period from legality and insecurity standpoint, resulting in for yet another extremely challenging,
trying and eventful month for him to deal with
the ongoing Russia probe, immigration, women, suspicious and insecure people around him and
his political agenda.
of Venus in sidereal Libra (September 1 - December 31)......
September 1, the planet Venus entered the sidereal Libra, and it is
going to stay in Libra till the end of this year (December 31), a long four
month period. It's because while transiting through Libra it turns retrograde
on October 6th, stays retrograde till November 16, and then becomes
direct and stays in Libra till December 31.
retrograde about once every 19 months, and stays retrograde for about six
general, a Libra retrograde Venus means a very challenging period for
women, marriages, home life, lovers, entertainment industries. Expect the
divorce rates to peak, fighting between spouses to intensify, and delays, frustrations,
and misunderstandings to take a center-stage in domestic matters. Sexual
scandals of prominent people are likely to make headlines.
However during its direct motion Sept 1 through Oct 6 and
then Nov 16 through December 31, it's a very positive and rewarding period for
people with Libra Venus in their natal charts. Entertainment industries
likely to advance with phenomenal success.
you have a dominating Venus in your birth chart, and if your current planetary
cycle influences your life via Venus then you are more likely to experience the
effects of the retrograde Venus during its retrograde period. The entertainers like actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, movie
directors and producers may
find themselves in a miserable situation during the retrograde Venus period

of Mars in sidereal Capricorn (May 2 - November 6).......
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
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.
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, a 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.

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 Mar's placement
in their natal charts.
