Retrograde Mercury (Feb 17 - Mar 10)
17, the planet Mercury
becomes retrograde in
It will stay retrograde in Aquarius until March
10. Typically retrograde
Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays,
frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in
daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Aquarius
more frustrating periods for educators, academics, philosophers,
philanthropists, social reformers, activists and researchers. This is not a good
time to start
a new project or venture, but rather reflect on what's been done so far.
Also, this is the best time to cleanup that closet and do other chores that you
have been postponing due to lack of time.
In addition, if you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart and if Mercury
is currently your operating planet, then you are more
likely to experience the pronounced effects of retrograde Mercury during this
period with respect to matters signified by the house it's currently transiting through in your
Gochar (transit) chart.
About President Donald Trump and
operating planets (the planets that presently active for
him) for March continue to be Saturn and Venus. And they will continue to be
operating planets for him for several more
years. In addition, after March 24, Sun becomes operating planet which
remains active until May 10.
Saturn will be in the sidereal Capricorn, in the eighth house of his Gochar (transit)
chart. Also, in his
ninefold Gochar (transit) chart, Saturn will be in the 9th house until March 30 and then in the
10th house for the rest of the month. Venus will be in sidereal Aries (the
11th house of his Gochar chart)
until March 27, and then in sidereal Taurus (the 12th house of his Gochar
Chart) for the rest of the month.
From Dasa standpoint, Saturn
continues to be unfavorable, being in the eighth house of his
Gochar (transit) and in the 9th house of his ninefold Gochar (transit) chart. As a result,
President Trump becomes self-destructive and continues to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries
alike. In addition to be
frustrated and depressed, he is likely to be in the company of wrong people. In light of
his on going Coronavirus and other crisis, he will
continue to have an on going friction with his cabinet members and political
adversaries. Furthermore, he will be dealing with his self-created feud with
congress men and women and others. Overall chaos, fear, confusion and disappointment
will continue to dominate to describe his political experiences.
However, the manifestation of the
11th house (March 1-27) resident transiting Venus
is likely to be favorable
for him for almost the entire month as
he will be successful in portraying his showmanship characteristics that
helped him to win the 2016 presidential election.
On the other hand, the most severe
challenge due to the opposition of transiting Pluto
to his natal Saturn during entire March is very likely to turn out to be extremely intensive
for him from
holding on to power standpoint for he would likely to be overwhelmed by
defeat and humiliation.
Thus, during March, the
of Saturn present very intensive and painful time for him. In addition, the
opposition of the transiting Pluto to his natal Saturn will certainly create
explosive political climate and serious personal challenges from legality and insecurity standpoint, resulting in
another trying and frustrating month for him to deal with crisis like
coronavirus as well as other political situations; business dealings and
having 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.
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
for March include
13-31), Uranus-Rahu (Mar 12-18) ninefold oppositions; Neptune-Saturn
(Feb 24 - Mar 5) ninefold square; Pluto-Mars (Mar 22-24), Saturn-Mars (Mar
30 - Apr 1) conjunctions and Pluto-Rahu (Mar 7-15) ninefold conjunction.
The Pluto-Uranus (Mar
13-31) ninefold opposition may become cause for the unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other
nations with respect to its war against
coronavirus outbreak, terrorism agenda, and also with the domestic matters. There will be a
transformation of a political strategy that might become responsible of a change
in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Trump administration as the planet
Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the
field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of
norms. Expect some serious issues that the Trump administration could get

12-18) ninefold opposition may become responsible for a
difficult period for the United States, and in

undesirable happening and strong possibilities of both natural and man-made
calamities around the world, the Saturn-Mars (Mar
30 - Apr 1) conjunction may become cause for a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence,
especially in Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an
undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made
calamities are real possibilities.
