Update -- About
President Donald Trump and his current challenges......
In light of recent developments after firing
the FBI director James Comey, with his interview with NBC, his meeting
with Russian envoy and everyday self damaging tweets, it seems, President
Trump may have reached the tipping point where the public perception of him
as a sane person is fast eroding. In addition to my monthly
forecast about him below, I wondered about his near term (especially the
month of May) political prospects from the planetary configuration with
respect to his natal chart standpoint, especially if there are any
significant planetary configurations are occurring for the rest of the
month. And here's what I have found.
The transiting Mars is presently at sidereal
Taurus 21 degrees. It will soon conjunct his 10th house (profession,
career, job etc.,) resident natal Uranus, Rahu and Sun. The Mars being
in the 12th house (confrontation, drama, chaos, loss, separation and
abandonment) of his natal chart, I wouldn't be surprised it will create
unprecedented and unimaginable events for him during the rest of May.
May 18-20: Mars conjuncts natal
Uranus.....a possibility of very sudden event that may turnout to be very
damaging for the country. Lot of unexpected happenings.
May 22-24: Mars conjuncts natal Rahu.... a
self destructive period for him
May 25-27: Mars conjuncts natal Sun.....His
behavior may reach to a point of being totally insane
President Donald Trump and his challenges......
President Trump's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Saturn and
Venus. In addition, after May 21, Moon, Pluto and Ketu will join Saturn
During May, Saturn remains in sidereal Sagittarius,
the seventh house of his progressive chart. In his ninefold
progressive chart Saturn will be in the 11th house for the
the entire month. Venus
will be in sidereal Pisces, the tenth house of his
progressive chart. While Saturn may tend to be less
unfavorable, Venus will continue to be unfavorable for him as the
the 10th house resident transiting
Venus, distracts him from his presidential duties due to forces
of external influence. After May 21, Pluto being in the 7th
house of his progressive chart, it will join the
seventh house resident transiting
Saturn and both of them together will make matters more difficult to deal with, especially
own cabinet members.
addition, when the planetary transits with respect to his natal chart are considered, the
transiting Saturn will quincunx the 11th house resident natal Venus during the entire month, and the manifestation of this
particular transit may be reflected in situations that he will find beyond
his control to deal with. Also, the square of the transiting Uranus
with his natal Saturn will continue to create friction between his
administration and the House and Senate republicans.
the operating planets are unfavorable from the Dasa cycle
standpoint, and the influence of transiting Saturn as explained above,
may become responsible for yet another challenging month
for him to deal with the people around him.
As indicated last October in my US
2016 Presidential Election prediction, column,
as reproduced below,
there was a very strong possibility that President Trump will have
difficulty remaining in power and have to let that power go.
I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, the destiny
of the United States, which in my opinion, is very much dependent on the
transiting Uranus. And because the retrograde Uranus being temporarily
back in the sidereal Pisces and will not return to sidereal Aries (the
cardinal fire sign) until April 2017, there's a strong possibility that
the election outcome may not matter come April 2017. Without being
sensationalizing and dramatizing the future of the United States, I think
that when Uranus returns to sidereal Aries in April 2017 it will certainly
and drastically change the political landscape. As a result, it's very
likely that the person who will be the leading the world's powerful nation
then as the president of the USA will be a different one."
While the strong possibility of President Trump
let his power go has not so far materialized, he is not out of woods
yet as the transiting retrograde Saturn will oppose his natal Sun (June 8
- July 10) and his natal Rahu (July 10 - Oct 10); quincunx his natal
Saturn (May 28 - June 27); and conjuncts his natal Moon (June 28 - Aug
10). These four hits of the transiting retrograde Saturn are crucial
for him to overcome until the Saturn becomes direct (August 25) and then
again the transiting Saturn sweeps through the same part of the zodiac
making the same four aspects (hits) till the end of the year that he must
About Uranus's entry
in sidereal Aries ........
of the important planetary events of 2017 is the transit of the modern planet
Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. It was stationed in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then entered Aries, and
will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so.
Uranus, being the planet
of change, will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries
being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for
independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in
world political landscape is going to be
tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries. The people who are most
affected by this transit are military personnel, business and political leaders. In scientific and
technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will
find their way into innovations and discoveries. The
scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace. A
new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on
world order will certainly
transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to.
individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready
for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is
a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be
sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage,
profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.
important challenging planetary configurations for
may include Pluto-Rahu (May 5-19) ninefold opposition, Saturn-Mars (May
27-29) opposition; Pluto-Uranus (May 6-15) and Pluto-Saturn (May 23 - June
4) ninefold quincunxes, and Pluto-Mars (May 17-19) and Neptune-Jupiter (May
6 - June 4) quincunxes.
While the Pluto-Rahu
(May 5-19) ninefold opposition
may become responsible for natural and man-made calamities all around the
world, the manifestation of
the Saturn-Mars (May 27-29) opposition may be reflected in a short term but very
friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence,
especially in Middle East will be on rise. Outbreak of an
undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made
calamities are real possibilities.
(May 6-15) ninefold quincunx could
bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other
nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda, and also with its domestic matters.
Expect some serious issues that the Trump administration could get
Pluto-Saturn (May 23 - June 4) ninefold quincunx may become responsible for an
outbreak of violence and terrorist activities
in Middle-East, a strong possibility of natural as well as man-made calamities, and to
some extent, war-like climate in some part of the world. Tension between
Israelis and Palestinians will remain unabated. Russia and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.
The manifestation of the direct square of Jupiter
with Neptune (May 6 - June 4) maybe reflected in the challenges with the
earthshaking ideas that the world religions are likely to face and must
attend to. New controversial
issues will take the central stage in the religious world. Religious leaders
will be challenged as they are going to be put on the test. Those who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new
and fresh ideas without losing morality, are the ones that going to be responsible to
guide people. Others are likely to fade away with time.
The Pluto-Mars (May 17-19) quincunx may become the
cause for a sudden outbreak of an
undesirable happening and possibilities of both natural and
The important auspicious planetary configuration
for May include Uranus-Saturn (May 9-26) trine.
(May 9-26) trine means a good period for
religious activities all around the world. Also, this is a great time for
the USA to make some extraordinary progress in both internationally and

regions), India, Russia, China and the European countries.
The manifestation of the Neptune-Rahu
(April 21-28) ninefold sextile may be reflected in significant
progress in technology field via inventions and discoveries.
In addition, spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive
energy and create a very healthy atmosphere around us.
