Astrological Insights for June 2019
significant planetary event for June is the perfect conjunction of transiting Saturn
and the south lunar node Ketu (and opposition of Saturn and Rahu) in sidereal
Sagittarius being a fire and spiritual sign ruled by Jupiter, it's about the
righteousness and our judicial perception coming under attack. It will be
reflected in all aspects of our lives, especially in social, politics and the areas
where power and corruption dominates.
a period when karmic forces are under full force, and experiences that
typically have no logical explanations resulting in "why it's happening
to me?" are likely to be far more frequent at both individual and
collective level. But at the same time, It's a period when after having
gone through painful experiences ultimately patience and perseverance
a period when our prejudices and conditionings are challenged and open up the
possibilities to shed them through understanding of "what is" and
let go of "what should be or what we like it to be" and the
potential for seeing the reality by lifting the fog of illusion around us-a
process referred to as self-realization. This is a period when a
potential for true transformation (a spiritual experience) happens if we are
aware and conscious about around surrounding. More on this below under Saturn-Rahu
a result, it's possible that the collective political, religious and social
events all around the world, may go through a process of irreversible
transformation (a recent example, Israeli prime-minister Netanyahu going
through a difficult period and Israelis may have to go to polling booth again
soon to choose their next prime-minister) that might be required to align the forces of nature (Saturn-Ketu-Pluto
conjunction), as a next step of our human evolution!
addition, in June, the transiting Mars will be making conjunction with the
transiting north lunar node, Rahu, opposition to Ketu, Pluto as well as to the
transiting Saturn. Mars, a fiery and explosive planet, is a natural
adversary to Rahu and Saturn. The manifestations of its deadly aspects
(conjunction and opposition) with Rahu, Pluto and Saturn are likely to reflect
in chaotic events (both natural and man-made calamities; e.g. unprecedented
non stop weather calamities in mid and central USA for last 14 days) at
collective level and traumatic and painful experiences at individual levels
(especially for those who have poor placements of these planets in their natal
Rahu-Mars conjunction (June
12-14) --- Both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and
loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader
opposition (June 12-14)----Natural and man-made calamities all around the
world, accidents such as fire burns, gun violence and clashes between rival
groups including activists and others.
opposition: (June 18-20)--- Sudden outbreak of an
undesirable happening, possibilities of both natural and man-made
calamities are likely. Traumatic, fearful and painful experiences at
transit of the lunar node Rahu in sidereal Gemini and Ketu in sidereal
Sagittarius (March 8, 2019 - September 25, 2019).......
backward moving lunar nodes (which represent the point of intersections of
earth's orbit around the Sun and the Moon's orbit around the Earth) Rahu and
Ketu stay in one sign for approximately 18 to 18 1/2 months, and on
March 8, they changed signs (Rahu from Cancer to Gemini and Ketu from
Capricorn to Sagittarius). And they remain in their respective signs till
September 25, 2020.
for individuals, Rahu and Ketu are considered as karmic planets. Those who
have Aries, Leo, Virgo, Libra and Capricorn ninefold (Navamansa) ascendant are
likely to be benefited by positive energy of these lunar nodes for next 18
months or so. While Leo and Virgo ninefold ascendant people will likely
to see financial gains and professional success, Libra and Aries ascendant
people will put their new ideas to work by successfully implementing them. The
Capricorn ascendant people will be victorious over their rivals and overcome
heavy odds to be successful in whatever they do.
next next 6 to 8 months the lunar node Rahu will be making oppositions with
planets Saturn and Pluto (and simultaneously the lunar node Ketu will conjunct
Saturn and Pluto) These opposition and conjunction aspects will be very
strong and intense.
Saturn-Rahu opposition occurs during March 31 - October 23 (within
three degrees). It usually deals with intense karmic experiences for
both individuals and collectively for a society or nation as a whole.
individuals, based on their natal charts, if they have challenging placement
of these planets, they are likely to go through painful material experiences as a
part of their karmic redemption process, and only through the awareness
while going through
these painful experiences, such individuals can transform their lives by
understanding themselves, a process usually refers as a self
collective level (societies or nations), places like Russia, China or Saudi
Arabia are likely to experience social or political unrest. In the
United States, the political Republican party and republicans may go through
unwanted painful experiences during this period.
Pluto-Rahu opposition within three degree orb, occurs during February
16 - May 25 (within three degrees). Similar to Saturn-Rahu opposition it
deals with intense karmic experiences for both individuals and societies or
nations, but such experiences will likely to be very drastic and unbearable.
those who have challenging placements of these planets in their natal
charts, are likely to have intense karmic experiences. These experiences are
extremely intense, and they will certainly (and drastically) change our
comfort zones that we are used to, and after having gone through a period of
struggle and adjustment, we (in a way forced) will likely to arrive at and
must adjust to a new level of living (both materially and
non-materially). Again the idea here is the same as that for Saturn-Rahu
opposition that only through the awareness while going through
these painful experiences,
such individuals can transform their lives by understanding themselves, a
process usually refers as self realization.
On a collective level, an eruption of new waves of
violence in the Palestine-Israel region is likely. In addition, world religions in general,
and religious leaders in particular, may experience themselves having to go
through crisis that demand changes. In other words, the orthodox religious
leaders may come under social and moral pressures to change the way they handle

operating planets (the planets that presently active for
him) for June continue to be Saturn, Venus, Pluto and Ketu. While Saturn
and Venus will continue to be operating planets for several years, Pluto and
Ketu will continue to be till
August 29, 2019.
During June, Saturn will be in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh
house of his progressive chart, and it will be in the 6th house of his ninefold
progressive chart. Venus will be in sidereal Aries (the 11th
house of his progressive chart) till June 4, in Taurus (the 12th
house of his progressive chart) till June 28 and then in Gemini (the first
house of is progressive chart).
From Dasa standpoint, Saturn
continues to be unfavorable, being in the seventh house of his progressive
chart, but favorable being in the 6th house his ninefold progressive chart. Thus,
it's a mixed picture. Due to being in the 7th house of his progressive
chart, Mr. trump will likely to continue to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries
alike. He will still continue to be haunted by Mueller report's fallout, his
income tax returns and business litigations. He will even get involved in direct
confrontations with people that include not only his adversaries but also with his
cabinet and family members. However, being in the 6th house of his
ninefold progressive chart Saturn becomes favorable for him, and
therefore, at least to some extent he is likely to have things go his way
The manifestation of the
resident transiting Venus is favorable for him for personal life happiness
standpoint till June 4. The 12th house resident transiting Venus is favorable
for him for material happiness including extra marital affairs during June
4-28. However, the transiting Venus will conjunct natal Uranus, Rahu
and Sun on June 24, June 26-27 and June 28 respectively, and as a result, Mr.
Trump is likely to face challenges from females with increasing frustrations
as well as female related issues coming to surface that might prove to be
The 7th house
resident Pluto in both the progressive and ninefold progressive charts is
certainly not positive for him as he will encounter sudden, unexpected
and explosive situations, finding them extremely difficult to deal with.
In addition, the transiting Pluto is going to be in quincunx with his natal
Rahu, making it extraordinarily
challenging from politics standpoint. Furthermore, the 7th
house resident transiting Ketu that conjunct transiting Saturn will certainly add fuel to fire
the matters worse.
Thus, during June,
of Saturn in his the progressive and the favorable transit of Saturn in his ninefold progressive
chart presents a mixed picture, the conjunction of three explosive and operating
transiting planets: Saturn, Pluto and Ketu in the 7th house of his progressive
chart will 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 fallout from Mueller report, investigations by House democrats into his
taxes and business dealings, suspicious and insecure people around him.
In addition, the
conjunction of transiting Sun with natal Uranus, Rahu and Sun during June
10-15 may prove to be extremely painful and disastrous for him.
important challenging planetary configurations
for June include
Saturn-Rahu (April 25 - Sept
30), Saturn-Mars (June 12-14) and Pluto-Mars (June 18-20) oppositions, and
Neptune-Saturn (June 13-22) ninefold opposition; Rahu-Jupiter (June 2-29)
quincunx, Pluto-Rahu (May
25 - June 12), Pluto-Uranus (June 19-30) and Pluto-Neptune (June 23 - Sept
21) ninefold quincunxes; Neptune-Jupiter (June 8-23) square; Saturn-Jupiter
(June 10-19) and Rahu/Ketu/Jupiter (June 12-20) ninefold squares; Rahu-Mars
(June 12-14) conjunction and Neptune-Rahu (June 11-22) ninefold conjunction.
(April 25 - Sept 30) opposition
may become responsible for
social or political unrest in places like Russia or China, and also for eruptions
of violence incidences at unexpected places stemming from racism and
religious hate. In addition, for the Republican Party and republicans
in the United States, it may prove to be prudent to stay on
guard during this period.
The manifestation of Saturn-Mars (June 12-14)
opposition may be reflected in a short term but very intensive
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.
The cause of Pluto-Mars (June
18-20) opposition may result in a sudden outbreak of an
undesirable happening, possibilities of both natural and
man-made calamities. The countries that are most likely to be affected during
this period would be the Syria, Iraq, Iran, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan,
Palestine and Israel, and the United States.
(June 13-22) ninefold opposition may become responsible for rise in covert activities.
Possibilities of natural as well as man-made
calamities are very likely. Places like Russia and China 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.
of the Rahu-Jupiter (June 2-29) quincunx may be reflected in more orthodox
religious leaders around the world coming under attack or find difficulties
in carrying out their activities and in general, keeping people
The Pluto-Rahu (May
25 - June 12), Pluto-Uranus (June 19-30) and Pluto-Neptune (June 23 - Sept
21) ninefold quincunxes may become responsible for: An eruption
of new waves of violence in the Palestine-Israel, Syria and
Afghanistan-Pakistan regions. And perhaps, towards the end of this
period due to Pluto's transformation process, the resulting changes are likely
to become irreversible. Occurrences of natural as well as man-made calamities
all around the world, and Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.
The Pluto-Uranus ninefold
bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other
nations with respect to its war against rogue nations in Middle East, and also with its domestic matters.
Expect some serious issues that the Trump administration could get
The cause of Neptune-Jupiter
(June 8-23) square may result in the world religious leaders facing the
new challenges that they must deal with. 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.
(June 10-19) ninefold square may become responsible for more controversies that test
traditional moral values (for instance, abortion debate in the USA) and also religious
authorities having difficulty in keeping people
The manifestation Rahu-Mars (June
12-14) conjunction may be reflected in natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives.
(June 11-22) ninefold conjunction may become responsible for social as well as economic
turmoil in Russia and China.
Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of
Neptune's secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and
other international conflicts.
important auspicious planetary configuration
for June include Neptune-Rahu
(June 1 - July 5) trine and Uranus-Saturn (June 15-20) ninefold trine;
Neptune-Saturn (June 2- July 1) sextile, Uranus-Rahu (June 14 -20) and
Neptune-Uranus (June 8-25) ninefold sextiles.
of the Neptune-Rahu (June 1 -
July 5) trine
may be reflected
in a positive period for Russia and China. Also, most of the
technological areas are likely to make significant progress via inventions and
Uranus-Saturn (June 15-20)
ninefold trine may become responsible for Democrats and Republicans to
agree on something and perhaps pass a bill. This is a great time for
the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and
(June 2- July 1) sextile may mean expansion of religious activities
around the world with new vigor and energy. Conservatives will
find ways to expand their agenda without compromising with liberals on sticky issues.
Republicans will have upper hand over democrats. China and Russia are likely to experience
a positive and rewarding period in handling their domestic issues as well as
improving the foreign relations through better policies.
(June 8-25) ninefold sextile may become responsible for extraordinary time for
collective spiritual growth,
technological discoveries and inventions. Expect some new
important technological breakthroughs during this month. For the United States, in
general, it's going to be a remarkable and very successful period.
The countries that
are more likely to be affected during this month are: The USA, Russia,
China, India, Pakistan, Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia
