Astrological Insights for October 2019
Saturn-Rahu, with in a degree, direct opposition will end by early October,
it's lingering effect (within a three degree) will continue through
October 23. This opposition (with in a three degree) started sometimes during
April 2019, about the time Saturn became retrograde.
back, it is interesting to note that, during Saturn retrograde period (which
ended just about three weeks ago) the whole Ukraine scandal was brewing
secretly behind the scene. Even the "Whistleblower" who filed
the complaint on August 22, had to wait to see it come out in public's view
until the third week of September. Now the direct Saturn, which has been
stationary for last 2-3 weeks, is gaining speed and it seems, details of the
scandal will likely to come out now in open (under impeachment inquiry) in a expeditious
has been a period when collective karmic forces have been working under full force, and experiences that
typically have no logical explanations have been far more frequent at both personal and
collective level. But at the same time, It's has been a period when after having
gone through painful experiences, there's a possibility that patience and perseverance
has a chance to win.
a result, it's possible that the collective political experience the United
States has been experiencing, may go through a process of irreversible

operating planets (the planets that presently active for
him) for October continue to be Saturn and Venus. And until October 22, Mars. While Saturn
and Venus will continue to be operating planets for him for several more years,
Mars will continue to be till Oct 22, 2019.
Saturn will continue to be in the sidereal Sagittarius, in the seventh
house of his Gochar (transit) chart, and in the 5th house of his ninefold Gochar
chart. Venus will be in sidereal Virgo (the 4th house of his Gochar chart) till
Oct 3, and then in Libra (the 5th house of his Gochar chart) till Oct 28 and
then in Scorpio (the 6th 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, and also unfavorable, being in the 5th house of his ninefold Gochar chart. Due to being in the 7th house of his
Gochar chart and turned direct about two weeks ago and started gaining speed , Mr. Trump, as has been and will continue to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries
alike. In light of the recent "whistleblower's complaint" he will
continue to be more and more frustrated by on going friction with intelligence
community as well investigations by several house committees as impeachment
inquiry and 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. In addition, being in the
5th of of his ninefold Gochar chart) Saturn is unfavorable for him, and
therefore, confusion and disappointment become
keywords to describe his political experiences.
The manifestation of the
resident transiting Venus until Oct 2 is favorable
for him from family happiness standpoint and good times at the golf clubs.
And then the 5th house resident transiting Venus (until Oct 28) will also be favorable
for general happiness, financial gains and showmanship standpoint. Thus, it's a
mixed picture when activation energies of unfavorable Saturn and favorable
Venus are combined.
However, the 4th house
resident Mars in his Gochar chart will certainly bring him unwanted challenges and political snafus and
failures, further accelerating his downfall.
Thus, during October,
while the favorable transit of Venus provides
him with the opportunities to have a political success, the
of Saturn in both of his the Gochar and the ninefold Gochar
charts presents a very disappointing picture. And the active Mars in the
fourth house of his Gochar chart further adds fuel to fire. October 15 thru
25 would certainly be the period to watch about political events in Washington
D.C. that he would find extremely unbearable. In addition, the conjunction of explosive and operating
transiting planet Saturn with Ketu 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 impeachment
inquiry by House democrats into the recent "whistleblower's"
taxes and business dealings, friction with intelligence communities, and his feud with congress women and suspicious and insecure people around him.
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.
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
important challenging planetary configurations

Uranus-Mars (Oct 10-12) and Neptune-Mars (Oct 27-29) quincunxes;
Saturn-Jupiter (Oct 19-24) and Saturn-Rahu (Oct 24-29) ninefold quincunxes;

man-made calamities, especially in countries like the United States of America, Russia,
China, Iraq, Iran, India, Pakistan, Palestine and Israel.
(Oct 19-24) ninefold quincunx may become responsible for difficult time
for world religions around the world. More controversies are likely
to occur to test

authorities will have difficulty in having people keep their faith.
The Saturn-Rahu (Oct
24-29) ninefold quincunx may become cause for unrest in places like China

guard during this period.
(Oct 20-22) squares may become responsible for both natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives.
manifestation of the deadly Saturn-Mars (Oct
25-27) square may be reflected in a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan, terrorism and violence
around the world,
especially in Middle-East area. Also, outbreak of an
undesirable happening, and occurrences of both natural and man-made
calamities are strong possibilities.
(Oct 19-25) ninefold square may mean social or political turmoil in USA,
Russia and China. Also, friction and rising tensions between USA and China
and USA and Russia. In addition, in USA, politics between democrats
and republicans gets real ugly.

for October include Pluto-Saturn (Aug 15 - Oct 9) ninefold
sextile and Neptune-Saturn (Oct 27 - Nov 18) sextile.
The manifestation of the Pluto-Saturn
(Aug 15 - Oct 9) ninefold sextile may be reflected in a good period for
European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
(Oct 27 - Nov 18) sextile is positive for religious activities all around
the world as they are likely to expand 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.
