Astrological Insights for September 2019
of the significant planetary events for September is the 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, political areas and the areas
where power and corruption dominates.
a period when karmic forces are working 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 personal 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 would 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 our surroundings. 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, a series of president Trump's
frustrating and insecurity driven tweets reflecting unimaginable anxieties
he is exhibiting and the debates among the democratic party's presidential
nominee hopefuls) that might be required to align the forces of nature
conjunction), as a next step of our human evolution!
last leg of intense Saturn-Rahu
opposition and Saturn-Ketu conjunction (with in one degree)
ending by 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 12
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.
September the lunar node Rahu will continue to be making
opposition with Saturn (and simultaneously the lunar node Ketu will conjunct
Saturn). This 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, Saudi
Arabia and Iran are likely to experience social or political unrest. In the
United States, both the political parties, Republican and Democratic, are
likely to go through
unwanted painful experiences during this period.
About President Donald Trump and his challenges......
operating planets (the planets that presently active for
him) for September continue to be Saturn and Venus. And starting August
30, 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 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 Leo (the 3rd house of his Gochar chart) till
Sept 9, and then in Virgo (the 4th 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
chart, Mr. Trump, as has been and will continue to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries
alike. He will still be haunted by Mueller report and testimony's fallout, his
income tax returns and business litigations, and his self-created feud with
Congress men and women and others. He will even get involved in direct
confrontations with people that include with 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 is favorable
for him from recognition, showmanship and success standpoint till Sept 9. And then the
4th house resident transiting Venus will also be favorable
for him family happiness and good times at the golf clubs. Thus, it's a
mixed picture when activation energies of unfavorable Saturn and favorable
Venus are combined.
The 3rd house
resident Mars in his Gochar chart is positive for him till Sept 24 for political
success, showmanship, prestige and power. After Sept 24, the 4th house
resident Mars brings challenges and political snafus and failures.
of Saturn in both of his the Gochar and the ninefold Gochar
charts presents a challenging picture, the favorable transit of Venus provides
him with the opportunities to have a political success. The conjunction of explosive and operating
transiting planets Saturn and 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 fallout from Mueller report, investigations by House democrats into his
taxes and business dealings, 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 does 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.
