Monthly Astrological Insights for February 2020  

For the month of February, the manifestation of the transit and the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in sidereal Capricorn (which has been and) will likely to be reflected in tragic and painful world events (such as Coronavirus, natural as well as man-made calamities, violence, senseless killings, etc.,), especially during Feb 10-24.  The political turmoil, especially in the United States will likely to continue during the entire month, especially with respect to the president Trump's senate impeachment trial until February 18. 

About President Donald Trump and his Senate Impeachment Trial

President Trump's operating planets (the planets that presently active for him) for February continue to be Saturn and Venus. And they will continue to be operating planets for him for several more years. 

During February Saturn will be in the sidereal Capricorn, in the eighth house  of his Gochar (transit) chart.  Also, in his ninefold Gochar (transit) chart, Saturn will be in the 8th house until February 23 and then in the 9th house for the rest of the month. Venus will be in sidereal Aquarius (the 9th house of his Gochar chart) until February 3, and then in sidereal Pisces for the rest of the month.

From Dasa standpoint, Saturn continues to be unfavorable, being in the eighth house of his Gochar (transit) and in the 8th and 9th house of his ninefold Gochar (transit) chart.  As a result, President Trump becomes self-destructive and continues to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries alike. In addition to be frustrated and depressed, he is likely to be in the company of wrong people. In light of his on going  impeachment trial in the Senate, he will continue to have an on going friction with democrats of several committees as the impeachment trial process unfolds. Furthermore, he will be dealing with his self-created feud with congress men and women and others.  Overall chaos, fear,  confusion and disappointment become keywords to describe his political experiences.

In addition, the manifestation of the 10th house (Feb 3-28) resident transiting Venus is likely to be very unfavorable for him for the entire month as he will be creating more feuds with women politicians and his adversaries in general. 

And the most severe challenge due to the opposition of transiting Saturn to his natal Saturn during the first half of February is very likely to turn out to be extremely intensive for him from holding on to power standpoint for he would likely to be overwhelmed by defeat and humiliation.  The same time the transiting Pluto (sudden downfall) and the transiting Saturn will be opposing his natal Saturn and natal Venus (issues with females) respectively further making the situation worse

Thus, during February, the challenging transit of Saturn present very intensive and painful time for him.  In addition, the opposition of the transiting Saturn and Pluto to his natal Saturn will certainly create explosive political climate and serious personal challenges from legality and insecurity standpoint, resulting in  yet another trying and frustrating month for him to deal with the looming Senate impeachment trial, his taxes and business dealings and suspicious and insecure people around him. The crucial period to watch (which may turn out to be the most intensive one so far of his presidency) is February 1-15.  And that might result in bringing him down with unwanted challenges and failures, further accelerating his downfall.

However, when one looks at the close conjunction of Sun and Rahu, and Rahu and Uranus in the 10th house of his natal chart,  and Moon in very close conjunction with the lunar node Ketu in the 4th house of his natal chart, it's not very surprising why he operates the way he does.  It seems to me, he is totally driven by the country's (USA) destiny (at least at this point in history) which is very closely tied with his own due to the Rahu-Uranus conjunction in the 10th house of his natal chart. 

It's the reflection of what collectively the country (USA) as a whole is going through at this point in time. Perhaps, it's a part of painful process of transformation and discovery of the next phase of its evolution, as reflected in constant churning (and becoming aware of them) of our die hard social prejudices and inherent, deeply rooted biases. If the country's destiny is at the crossroad of "CHANGE" at this point in history, that will certainly be reflected in political events of January.


Retrograde Mercury (Feb 17 - Mar 10) 

On February 17, the planet Mercury becomes retrograde in sidereal Aquarius. It will stay retrograde in Aquarius until march 10. Typically retrograde Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Aquarius means more frustrating periods for educators, academics, philosophers, philanthropists, social reformers, activists and researchers. This is not a good time 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 currently transiting through in your Gochar (transit) chart.

Saturn conjuncts Pluto (Dec 6 - Feb 17, 2020 with in 3 degree) in Sagittarius

On December 6, 2019, the first time since about last 36 years, Saturn approached Pluto (with in 3 degree orb) in sidereal  Sagittarius (almost close to the end of Sidereal Sagittarius).  The two spiritual planets in conjunction in the spiritual sign Sagittarius ruled by Jupiter makes this planetary event extremely powerful and spiritual.  

This conjunction occurred earlier during April 6 - May 28, 2019 (with in three deg orb) but it didn't occurred with in a degree. With in the second conjunction period, a close conjunction of one degree orb happens from December 31, 2019 thru January 23, 2020.

Pluto is a planet of transformation.  The process is irreversible and very subtle.  The old must die for the new  to be born. Thus, it brings drastic changes in our collective moral and spiritual perceptions (consciousness), as Pluto breaks away from the traditional barriers of our collective prejudices and conditionings. 

Sagittarius being the sign that deals with religious philosophy and teachings, this is a period of religious or philosophical revolution, and the way we perceive the surroundings through our conditioned (based on our upbringing and prejudices) lens is likely to be transformed during this period.  And when Pluto conjuncts Saturn, the process of transformation becomes exceptionally significant, as the manifestation of the synergy of these two spiritual planets will clearly reflect in (drastic) events happening all around us (or our world).

Sagittarius, being the sign for justice and judicial system, the conventional norms of our judicial systems are likely to come under attack and scrutiny, and transform into to reflect the new norms of morality and ethics.  Wonder what would the manifestation of this conjunction reflect in the senate impeachment trial of the president Trump during this period.  With Saturn's conjunction, Pluto's energy will accelerate the process of transformation. And such transformations are inevitably accompanied by painful experiences. Therefore, the likelihood of war, violence, uprisings, social conflicts and anxiety filled atmosphere all around the world are real possibilities, especially in places like Middle-East, and in particular, in Israeli and Palestine region.

The world financial markets will continue to be very volatile during this period.

In scientific and technological areas, a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will find their ways into innovations and discoveries that are aligned with our collective spiritual progress, as those (new ideas) will be more focused in areas that will bridge the gap between the science and morality. The likely areas of research will be in biotechnology, medicine, spiritual healing, and life-force related activities. A new wave of philosophers with their new perspectives on living, in general, will certainly transform our world to a new level of understanding. 


Global Predictions........

The important challenging planetary configurations for February include:

While the Rahu-Mars (Feb 23-25) opposition may become responsible for both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader, the Neptune-Jupiter (Feb 19-22)  ninefold opposition may become cause for challenges that world religions and their leaders might face 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 are going to fade away with time. 

The Uranus-Rahu (Feb 2-10) ninefold quincunx may mean difficult period for the United States in general, and the Republican Party in particular. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

The Saturn-Rahu (Feb 8-11) ninefold conjunction may become responsible for social or political turmoil for Russia, China and to some extent for Europe. Also, for the Republican Party in the United States and for republicans, it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.

Individual Predictions

Neptune-Jupiter ninefold opposition (Feb 19-22)

Both Jupiter and Neptune are considered as auspicious planets. While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Neptune's influence on us is very abstract and subtle. For those who have such opposition in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle are certainly going to experience a transformation (irreversible change) of their beliefs and moral values that they have been attached to. It's time for marching ahead with a quantum step in the process of self discovery (or evolution). Embrace this period with total openness and vulnerability. It's the time of rejuvenation with a positive force in your life. Enjoy!

Neptune-Saturn ninefold square (Feb 24 - March 5)

If you have a Neptune-Saturn square in your birth chart, and if any one of these two planets influencing you now through your current progressive chart, then during this period you might want to consider postponing your plans of expansion or any new venture, and just stay in a defensive mode.  This square has a tendency to ruin your plans in a very deceptive manner, and usually, there is very little you can do about it once the process begins.

Saturn-Jupiter ninefold square (Feb 11-17)

Jupiter-Saturn ninefold square is going to be unfavorable for those who have such square in their natal charts.  Loss of motivation, insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness, difficulty in keeping the faith in God are some of the symptoms of this square. This is like a test period. A period that can be viewed a real positive from self discovery standpoint since it will require you to bring best out of you to deal with situations around you.  If you have such a square in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you need to look at the things with a different attitude. The best thing to do is to stay the course of present action without making new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure of yourself, and unhappy with family.. well, that's how you going to feel this time. Keep your faith strong!  (More)
