Monthly Predictions for
of the important planetary events for May is the transit of Saturn, Ketu and
Pluto in sidereal Sagittarius, especially the perfect conjunction of Saturn
and Ketu around 26 1/2 degrees of Sagittarius during the first half of May.
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 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 that might be required to align the forces of nature (Saturn-Ketu-Pluto
conjunction), as a next step of our human evolution!
retrograde Jupiter's Scorpio return after a brief ingress in Sagittarius
On March 26, 2019 Jupiter entered Sagittarius and briefly
there until April 27 (just over a month) and then returned to Scorpio and
will stay in Scorpio till November 5, 2019.
being fixed and water sign ruled by friendly Mars, Jupiter in Scorpio has a
tendency to enhance material prosperity of those who have well placed and
connected Mars and Jupiter in their birth charts. For those who have
Jupiter's placement in their natal chart more inclined towards non-material
aspects of life, Jupiter in water sign Scorpio is likely to help them evolve
spiritually. In general, transit of Jupiter in Scorpio is positive.
For one thing spiritual prosperity around the world is more likely to
expand. (It must be noted that despite Jupiter's positive influence on
spiritual prosperity, effects of other planets should also be taken into
account to assess the net result or effect). In addition, the influence of
spiritual leaders, social reformers and in general, people that deal with
philanthropy and philosophy are likely to take lead in shaping the future
direction of human evolution through the philosophical and spiritual
debates. Being in the challenging water sign Scorpio, Jupiter's journey
through Scorpio will be marked with painful transformation. In
general, the Scorpio Jupiter is known to be responsible for world spiritual
transformation and expansion. So from that perspective expect some positive
spiritual changes during this period and welcome the Jupiter's entry in
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
About President Donald Trump and his challenges......
operating planets (the planets that presently active for
him) for May continue to be Saturn and Venus. In addition, Pluto and Ketu have
become operating planets and they will continue to be operating planets for
August 29, 2019.
During May, 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 Pisces (the 10th
house of his progressive chart) till May 10, and then in Aries (the 11th
house of his 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
continue to be haunted by Mueller report and Trump business litigations. He will even get involved in direct
confrontations with people that include not only his adversaries but also with his
cabinet 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
While the manifestation of the
resident transiting Venus will be reflected in more political challenges and obstacles
that might prove to be very painful for his ego to handle until May 10, after May
10, the 11th house resident transiting
Venus becomes favorable for him for personal life happiness standpoint.
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.
Since the transiting Pluto is in conjunct with transiting Saturn, and both
being operating planets, it will certainly prove to be extraordinarily
challenging period for him from politics standpoint. In addition, the 7th
house resident transiting Ketu that conjunct both Saturn and Pluto (all
being the operating planets) will certainly add fuel to fire further making
the matters worse.
Thus, during May,
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
extremely trying and frustrating month for him to deal with
the fallout from Mueller report, investigations by House democrats, immigration, suspicious and insecure people around him.
