Monthly Astrological Insights for January 2021
Date Posted: December 31, 2020
Re-entry in sidereal
transit of the modern
planet Pluto from the sidereal zodiac sign Sagittarius to Capricorn first
occurred around February 22, 2020 .Pluto stayed in Capricorn till July 3,
2020 and then with its retrograde motion returned to Sagittarius and stays in
Sagittarius till about December 28, 2020. On or about December 26, 2020 it
re-enters Capricorn and will remain in
Capricorn for the following 19 to 20 years (till March 2039). As
stated in my the year 2020 annual predictions, Pluto being the planet of transformation
will certainly affect the matters related to Capricorn in a big way.
being the earth sign (material world) ruled by Saturn (spiritual planet)
and being the cardinal sign (leader of the earth signs) and being
the planet of transformation (irreversible change), the drastic changes in
our collective perceptions of our material world are certainly going to be
manifested in the way we never experienced before by Pluto's transit in
era (next 19 to 20 years) will be remembered as the period of material
destruction and transformation to a new and very different way of living
(which we have been experiencing since the outbreak of Covid-19 in mid Feb
2020) that would align with our human evolution. The way we have been used
to deal with material world will no longer be our norms. Although
it's very likely that some of the world business leaders or companies will
either become obsolete or transformed into other forms, the material way
of living will be greatly influenced by our collective spiritual
experiences and subsequent understanding of the world due to Pluto's
in that sense a subtle but most effective transformation of the material
world during this unique era of about 20 years is likely to take us to a
new level of material living where the norms solely based on spiritual
experiences will dictate and guide our lives with a new level of material
conjunction (Dec 13-30) along with Pluto in Capricorn
The conjunction of Jupiter and
Capricorn is more influenced by the energy of Saturn than Jupiter (Jupiter
being debilitated in Capricorn). However, the direction in which the
manifestation and flow of Saturn's energy is likely to be dictated
by both the Saturn and Jupiter's mode of spirituality.
Jupiter's process (or journey) towards
spirituality is through knowledge (mind) followed by understanding of the
world through self-knowledge and self awareness. On the other hand,
Saturn leads us towards spirituality through actual hard life experiences
(usually painful) followed by understanding of the world through
self-knowledge and self-awareness.
along with the transformational planet Pluto in Capricorn, this conjunction brings drastic changes
in our collective moral and spiritual perceptions (consciousness) though
material life experiences, as Pluto breaks away from the traditional
barriers of our collective prejudices and conditionings of material
living. Some of these experiences may deal with scenarios such as: while enjoying
the comfort zone of material life, we could suddenly be faced with crisis
by losing that comfort zone. During that period, only through self
awareness we have an opportunity to transform our lives by understanding
the crisis. And if we succeed, we would be able look back and understand
that the real life is not in being stagnant (in that desire based comfort
zone) but in becoming free from those desires. A truly free person
enjoys life regardless of being in a comfort zone or being in crisis zone.
However, this wonderful process of spiritual
transformational growth is likely to be accompanied by very painful, chaotic
and frustrating human experiences (wars, violence, pandemic, terrorism, social
and political conflicts, natural and man-made calamities are some of the
few examples) required to
completely annihilate our present social norms and our prejudice based
conditioning, resulting in drastic changes in our collective moral and
spiritual perceptions (consciousness).
About President Donald Trump and
President Trump would be finishing his term by January 20, this is the last
analysis about him and his challenges.
will be the last leg of Rahu being progressively in conjunction with natal Sun,
Rahu and Uranus since the first week of Nevember 2020. During the first couple
of weeks of January, Rahu (24 deg 45 min
Taurus) conjuncts his natal Uranus
52 min) and become responsible for the final blow to
President Trump's karmic connection to this country's destiny as reflected
in his defeat.
January the transiting Saturn will be in the sidereal Capricorn, in the eighth house of his Gochar (transit)
chart. In his
ninefold Gochar (transit) chart, Saturn will be in the 10th house till January
21. The transiting Venus will be in sidereal Scorpio (the 6th house of his Gochar
Chart) till Jan 4 and then in the seventh house of his Gochar chart till Jan
Mercury will be in the 7th
house till Jan 5 and then 8th house.
From Dasa standpoint, Saturn, being in the eighth house of his
Gochar (transit) chart, continues to be unfavorable, but being in the 10th
his ninefold Gochar (transit) chart, indicates the
change of job/career/profession accompanied by workplace frustration.
As a result,
President Trump will continue to be self-destructive and face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries
alike and will be living in his self created world where he is
still the president. Overall his focus for the month and during waning days of his presidency is to
figure out to save the face without admitting being a loser.
The manifestation of the
the 6th house resident transiting Venus (till Jan 4) is certainly not favorable for him
as he will be worrying about his future litigations, debt and health. The
7th house resident transiting Venus (Jan 4-28) is also not favorable for
him. During that period he would have hard time in not
getting involved in feud with women in politics. Mercury
will be favorable for him after January 5th from his family matters and his well
being stand point.
important challenging planetary configurations
for January include:
Saturn-Rahu (Jan 2-5) and Pluto-Rahu (Jan 13-19) ninefold
quincunxes; Saturn-Mars (Jan 11-15) and Uranus-Jupiter (Jan 14-21) squares;
Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 2-10) and Pluto-Saturn (Jan 27 - Feb 3)
ninefold squares; and Uranus-Mars (Jan 19-22)

social or political unrest in Russia and/or China. Also, in the United State for the Republican Party and republicans, it may prove to be prudent to stay on
guard during this period.
(Jan 13-19) ninefold quincunx may result in an eruption of new waves of
violence in the Palestine-Israel, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan-Pakistan regions are likely. And perhaps,
towards the end of this period due to Pluto's
transformation process, the resulting changes are likely to become irreversible. 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
The manifestation of the
11-15) square may be reflected in
a likelihood of a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence
around the world,
especially in Iran, Syria and Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an
undesirable happening and occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities
all around the world are strong possibilities.
The activation of Uranus-Jupiter (Jan
14-21) square may be reflected
in challenges with earthshaking ideas that world religions must attend to. 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.
(Jan 2-10) ninefold squares may become responsible for accelerated secret activities all around
the world including political covert activities. Social
confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China are real
of the Pluto-Saturn (Jan
27 - Feb 3) ninefold square maybe
reflected in experiences of serious challenges and sudden political
challenges that Russia and to some extent China are likely to go through.
(Jan 19-22) conjunction in Aries is likely to prove to
be very volatile, especially in financial and political worlds. A possibility of sudden outbreak
of a new and unprecedented conflict in the the United States of America can not be ruled
out. Or it could be a man-made accident or a mishandling incident by the government.

The manifestation of the
ninefold trine may
be reflected in
a good period for
religious activities all around the world. Also, this is a great time for
the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and
The Neptune-Saturn (Dec 30 - Jan 5) ninefold
sextile may become responsible for expansion of religious activities all around
the world with new vigor and energy, conservatives are likely to 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.
(Jan 27-29) ninefold conjunction is positive for collective spiritual
expansion of the world. It maybe accompanied by a painful process of
conflict where the world religions are challenged with new realities of way
of living that are not non-traditional, and conditioning and age-old
