Monthly Astrological Insights for December 2019  

 

November 30, 2019

 

During 2019, the first time since about last 36 years ago, Saturn had approached (and will approach) Pluto (with in three 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 this year 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 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 the manifestation of this conjunction would reflect in the senate impeachment trial of the president Trump during this period. More on this below.

A ring of fire solar eclipse  (Dec 26)

A ring of fire solar eclipse occurs on December 26 approximately during the hours of 03:00 to 06:30 GMT. This eclipse will be visible from a ring to a partial ring in continents of south eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Pacific rim-countries. The Middle East, India, Sri Lanka and Indonesian region will see the complete ring of fire.

This eclipse is important since the Sun and Moon will be within three degrees from Ketu, the Southern or descending node in the sidereal zodiac sign Sagittarius. Consequently this eclipse, according to Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Sagittarius rising or Sagittarius as moon sign or as Navamansha ascendant . 

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 this eclipse.

On world scene, Middle East, India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia region might experience some undesirable events.

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

On December 6, the first time since about last 36 years, Saturn approaches 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 this year 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 the manifestation of this conjunction would 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. 

About President Donald Trump and his challenges......(Impeachment?) 

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

During December Saturn will continue to be in the sidereal Sagittarius, in the seventh house of his Gochar (transit) chart, and in the 6th house of his ninefold Gochar (transit) chart until December 25, and then in the 7th house of his ninefold Gochar (transit) chart. Venus will be in sidereal Sagittarius (the 7th house of his Gochar chart) until December 15 and then in Capricorn (the 8th house of his Gochar chart) for the rest of the month.

From Dasa standpoint, Saturn continues to be unfavorable, being in the seventh house of his progressive chart, but favorable, being in the 6th house of his ninefold Gochar chart till December 25 and then unfavorable during Dec 25-31. It's a mixed bag.  As a result, while Mr. Trump will continue to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries alike he might be partially successful in pushing back his adversaries.  In light of the looming impeachment in the House, he will continue to be more and more frustrated by the on going friction with house democrats of several committees as impeachment process unfolds. In addition, he will be dealing with his self-created feud with Congress men and women and others. He will even get involved in direct confrontations with people that will include his cabinet and family  members.  Overall chaos, confusion and disappointment become keywords to describe his political experiences.

The manifestation of the 7th house (until Dec 15) and 8th house (for the rest of the month) resident transiting Venus is unfavorable for him for the first half of the month. His worries about his survival as a president will intensify due to the looming impeachment in the house, and perhaps, potential loss of GOP support in the senate trial. In addition, during this period his abrasive behavior towards females will likely to surface with few episodes of nasty encounters with females of high stature. However, the second half of the month is favorable for him from personal gains and showmanship standpoint.  

In addition, Venus-Saturn conjunction (with in 3 degrees) during Dec 8-14 will certainly intensify his agonizing political experience, especially dealing with the House and Senate. Also, during 3 days of Dec 15-17 Venus will be opposing his natal Saturn.  During this period, he should be careful with his dealings with political female adversaries (like the Speaker Pelosi ).

Thus, during December, the challenging transit of Saturn and Venus present not as intense but somewhat  disappointing picture for him.  In addition, the conjunction of explosive and operating transiting planet Saturn with Pluto in the 7th house of his Gochar chart will certainly create more political and personal challenges from legality and insecurity standpoint, resulting in an yet another trying and frustrating month for him to deal with the looming impeachment process, his taxes and business dealings, friction with intelligence communities, and his feud with congress women and suspicious and insecure people around him. 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 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 December.

 

Jupiter's transit in the sidereal zodiac sign Sagittarius (November 4)

On November 4, Jupiter left (sidereal) Scorpio and entered the next zodiac sign, Sagittarius.  Jupiter's transit from one zodiac sign to the next occurs, on average, once a year. Being its own zodiac sign Jupiter will be residing in its own home.  Therefore, for the entire world, in general, it's going to be an auspicious time. Sagittarius is a mutable and fire sign, and it deals with philosophy, judiciary system, social justice, morality, and religion. 

On March 29, 2020, Jupiter enters Capricorn, it then becomes retrograde in Capricorn on May 11 and with its retrograde motion returns to Sagittarius on July 1, 2020. Thus, for just about three months it will be transiting through Capricorn before it returns to Sagittarius. Thereafter, it stays in Sagittarius till November 20, 2020. 

While in Capricorn, being a cardinal and earth sign ruled by Saturn, Jupiter in Capricorn has a tendency to enhance material prosperity of those who have well placed and well connected Saturn and Jupiter in their birth charts while others likely to experience their prosperity diminish. In general, collectively, the transit of Jupiter in Capricorn is positive from material prosperity standpoint. It must be noted that despite Jupiter's positive influence on world material prosperity, influence of other planets should be taken into consideration to assess the net effect for an individual based on his or her natal chart. In addition, during this period of March 20 - July 1, 2020,  the influence of contemporary philosophers on society will shape the future direction of our social evolution through the philosophical and metaphysical debates. In general, the Capricorn Jupiter is known to be responsible for world economic expansion.

Since Jupiter will be in conjunction with Pluto during March 27 - April 15, 2020 in Capricorn, the possibility of a severe religious or morality crisis as well as financial crisis are very likely.  Certainly the way we have the religious and morality based norms today will be challenged by the new forces of human evolution. And the world financial markets will exhibit unprecedented volatility.  The contemporary philosophers, reformers, industrialists, scientists, and all those who have power to influence people with their unique intelligence based talents will enjoy this period to its fullest.

In general, Sagittarius Jupiter is known to be responsible for leading the world towards more spiritual direction through subtle actions. So from that perspective expect some positive morality related changes during this period and welcome the Jupiter's entry in Sagittarius.

On individual levels, for those who have dominant Jupiter in their birth charts and have Libra, Capricorn, Aries, Gemini, or Leo as their natal ninefold (Navamansa) ascendant are likely to experience a very positive period that began on November 4.

 

Global Predictions........

The important challenging planetary configurations for December include:

The manifestation of the Neptune-Saturn (Dec 11-16) ninefold quincunx may be reflected in rise in covert activities and possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities. In addition places like Russia and China (Hong Kong?) are likely to experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open. 

The Saturn-Jupiter (Dec 12-17) ninefold quincunx may become responsible for difficult time for all religions around the world. More controversies are likely to occur to test traditional moral values, and in general, religious authorities will have difficulty in having people keep their faith.

The Uranus-Saturn ( Dec 14-18) ninefold quincunx may become cause for increased political turmoil in USA, Russia and or China (Hong Kong?) as well as rising tensions among these countries.

The manifestation of the Saturn-Rahu/Ketu (Dec 11-14) ninefold squares maybe reflected in rising barbaric activities all around the world. Terrorists are likely to be successful in creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in Europe and Russia is likely. Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.

 

The important auspicious planetary configuration for December include:

The Uranus-Jupiter (Dec 11-18) trine is likely to become responsible for occurrences of positive and significant changes in spiritual, religious, academic, and social fields that people are going to enjoy.

The manifestation of the Uranus-Rahu (Nov 2 - Dec 9) ninefold trine may be reflected in a great time for the USA to make some extraordinary (economical) progress in enhancing her image both internationally and domestically.

The Neptune-Rahu (Dec 6-16) ninefold sextile may become responsible for expansion of positive religious activities all around the world with new vigor and energy. China and Russia are likely to experience a positive and rewarding period in handling their domestic issues as well as improving their foreign relations through better policies.

The Uranus-Jupiter (Dec 14-16) ninefold conjunction may become responsible for religious challenges that world religious leaders face. The  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 will fade away with time.

Individual Predictions

Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (Dec 11-14)

Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be devastating for those who have such squares in their natal charts.  Anything that you attempt will be failed or will result in agonizing and frustrating experience. This is not the time to take any risk.  If you have such squares in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you need be extra careful. The best thing to do is not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk.   

Uranus-Jupiter trine (Dec 11-18)

This auspicious and inspirational trine of Jupiter with Uranus is excellent for academic, research oriented knowledge seekers.  Especially it's important since Uranus resides in the sidereal Pisces, a sign ruled by Jupiter.  In addition, this trine is good for all world religions as well as for people who are engaged in activities that help us expand morally, socially as well as materially.  

For those who have well placed Jupiter and Uranus in their birth chart (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to have spiritual experiences during this period.  People involved in the spiritual and humanitarian activities are likely experience a sudden boost in their daily activities, and religious authorities who are more open to new ideas and people's concerns are going to be well recognized by societies.

Neptune-Jupiter ninefold square (Dec 29-31)

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. If you have such square in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these two planets influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you are certainly going to experience a transformation (irreversible change) in your beliefs and moral values that you 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!  (More)
