About President Donald Trump and his challenges......
operating planets (the planets that presently influence
him most) for September continue to be Saturn and Venus.
In addition, Mercury will be his operating planet till November 25,
September, Saturn (becomes direct on September 6th) 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 for the month. Venus will be in sidereal Libra (the 5th
house of his progressive chart), and Mercury will be in sidereal Leo
(3rd house of his
progressive chart) till September 19, and then in Virgo (the 4th house of his
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) for him.
Therefore, 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. 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 the same time
he might get involve with women for the wrong reason and become frustrated.
Mercury in the 3rd house of his progressive charge is not good for his
political life until September 19, as he will be creating more enemies and
operate under fear of losing his presidency, humiliation, delays and disappointments
during that time.
In addition, the
transiting Mercury will be in square with his natal Uranus, Rahu and Sun
during September 15-20, and the manifestation of these squares may be
reflected in political turmoil and chaos that he must deal with.
both the transit of Saturn and the ninefold Saturn are unfavorable, especially
the ninefold Saturn (being in the first house of his progressive chart). While Venus
is favorable for him from his showmanship standpoint, the transiting Saturn spells
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 Mars in sidereal Capricorn.......
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.
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
opposition with the lunar north node, Rahu (June 9-18; July 12-22; Sept
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.
of Venus in sidereal Libra.......
September 1, the planet Venus enters the sidereal Libra, and it is
going to stay in Libra till the end of this year (December 31), a long four
months. 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
they are currently being influenced by Venus through their current progressive

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 the lunar nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will
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) 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 Sun-Rahu conjunction in the tenth house
of his natal chart.
