Monthly Astrological Insights for June 2021
Date Posted: May 31, 2021
is likely to witness a full array of significant worldwide events that
mostly due to the Uranus-Saturn
square as a major planetary event. During the entire
month this square will be with in a degree, and the perfect square during
June 14-16. As detailed below the manifestation of this square will be
reflected in continued friction between the Israelis and Palestinians (the
Hamas faction), ongoing global vaccine drive challenges, social unrests in
the Middle-East, Russia and China, and a significant rise in natural and
man-made calamities in the United States.
In addition, the energies of
Pluto-Mars and Pluto-Saturn oppositions may become responsible for intense
violence in the Middle-East area and between India and Pakistan
Other important events
are: the retrograde Mercury, and it will
continue to be retrograde till June 23; and the annular solar eclipse of
June 10. More on these below.
Retrograde Mercury (May 30 - June 23)
May 30, the planet Mercury became retrograde in
It will stay retrograde in Gemini/Taurus until
23. Typically retrograde
Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays,
frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in
daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Gemini
more frustrating periods for educators, academics, traders, communicators,
merchants, 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
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.
Annular Solar Eclipse (June 10 )
A total solar eclipse occurs on June 10 approximately
during the hours
of 8:00 to 13:00 GMT with maximum during 10:00 to 11:00 GMT. This eclipse will be visible in
Northern Canada, parts of Russia and Greenland.
This eclipse is not so important since the Sun
and Moon will be more than 9 degrees away from Rahu, the Northern or ascending
in the sidereal zodiac sign Taurus. Nonetheless, to some extent this eclipse, according to
Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Taurus
rising or Taurus as moon sign.
For those who have the lunar nodes in conjunction with
either Sun or Moon in their natal charts might want to be careful. Make it
a day of rest. Take extra precaution and avoid any sort of new activity during the time of eclipse.
transit in the sidereal Aquarius (Phase
1: April 5 - Sept 15; Phase 2: Nov 20, 2021 - April 13, 2022 )

entered the next zodiac sign, Aquarius. Jupiter's transit from one zodiac sign to the next occurs, on
average, once a year. This time, the first phase of
Jupiter's transit in Aquarius will last until Sept 15, 2021. Then with its
retrograde motion it will return to Capricorn and stay in Capricorn till
November 20, 2021. And then on November 20, 2021, it reenters Aquarius and
starts its second phase and that will last until April 13, 2022.
being the air sign Jupiter's manifestation in
Aquarius will certainly be reflected in emergence of new philosophies,
philosophical debates, and as a result, perhaps new norms and new way of
living. For the entire world, in general, it's
going to be an auspicious time from the spirituality
advancement point of view. In addition,
Aquarius being a fixed sign, the resulting
philosophical influences will likely to be long lasting. Also, academia,
social reformers, social justice, morality, universal
brotherhood and to some extent religions
are likely to be positively influenced by Jupiter's transit in Aquarius.
in Capricorn (September 15 - November 20), being a cardinal and
earth sign ruled by Saturn, Jupiter in
Capricorn has a tendency to enhance material
prosperity of those who have well placed and
well connected Saturn and Jupiter in their
birth charts while others likely to
experience their prosperity diminish. In
general, transit of Jupiter in Capricorn is
positive from material prosperity standpoint. It must be noted that despite
Jupiter's positive influence on world
material prosperity, influence of other
planets should be taken into consideration
to assess the net effect for an individual
based on his or her natal chart. In general, the
Capricorn Jupiter is known to be responsible
for world economic expansion.
individuals, for those who have dominant Jupiter in their birth charts and
have Sagittarius, Pisces,
Gemini, Leo, or
Libra as their natal ninefold (Navamansa)
ascendant are likely to experience a very positive period
beginning April 5
thru September 15, and then Nov 20, 2021 thru April 13, 2022.
Saturn-Uranus Square (January
18 - July 19)
One of the most important
and deadly planetary combinations of 2021 is
the Capricorn Saturn and Aries Uranus square during January 18 thru July 19
and then during the entire month of December 2021.
being a fire and cardinal sign is very suitable for brilliant,
independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus.
The changes in
world political landscape have been
tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries (Brexit's revival, Briton intensely suffering
from Covid-19 crisis, humiliating defeat of Donald Trump despite last
ditch efforts to overturn the results and inauguration of president-elect Joe Biden as the
next President of the United States of America, etc.,).
Now combine the Uranus's energy with that
of steadfast and subtle but very powerful energy of Capricorn Saturn through
its challenging square with Uranus. It's a perfect combination for
material world disasters including the natural calamities such as a possible
outbreak and spreading of new virus . Unless these
energies are properly understood, the man-made calamities might include
increased friction between world powers (USA-Russia and China) resulting into war-like climate.
The people who are
likely to be most
affected by this square are military personnel, people in
power such as business
leaders and political leaders. In scientific and
technological areas expect drastic changes; and emerging new ideas will
find their ways into innovations and discoveries.
Since the characteristics of Uranus are closely tied with
that of the United States as a country (especially the
states of California, Oregon and Washington) likelihood of serious natural and man-made
calamities, political and financial upheavals in the
United States is very strong.
characteristics of Uranus are more aligned with liberal ideas and that of Saturn
with conservatism, I wouldn't be surprised if an intense battle emerges between
the right wing republicans and the left wing democrats not only in congress but
all over the country that might last through July.
About President Joe

dispositions of the above planets, Jupiter will be favorable for him at least
until June 21 in achieving quite a few goals that he has been set out to do, and these
needs such as continued Covid-19 nationwide vaccinations efforts, global vaccine
drive, a possible Israel-Palestine peace effort, infrastructure bill.
After June 21, his efforts and progress may either seem to slow down or come to
a standstill as Jupiter turns retrograde. Additionally, despite a slow start, Mercury will be successful
for him for the
entire month of June in dealing with day to day issues and getting things done.
His popularity is likely to remain high as Americans continues to experience more

However, the opposition of the
transiting Uranus to his natal Mars, the square of the transiting Saturn to his
natal Mars and the conjunction of the transiting Rahu to his natal Saturn will
likely to be reflected in new new challenges that will test his ability to
govern. It may prove to be a very painful experience for him, especially the
energy of the transiting Uranus and Saturn likely to force him to be more
confrontational, the act that he always like to avoid.
June is likely to fair a mixed month for him with success in dealing with ongoing issues
on one hand but facing the new challenges requiring him to be more confrontational with
unknown outcome on the other.
