Wishing you a
Happy, Prosperous and Safe 2019
One of the biggest stories of 2019 is the
conjunction of Saturn and Pluto
in sidereal Sagittarius. The two spiritual planets in conjunction in the
spiritual sign Sagittarius ruled by Jupiter makes this planetary event
extremely powerful and spiritual.
The conjunction occurs twice. The first, during
April 6 - May 28, 2019 (with in three deg orb) and the second one with
three degree orb occurs during December 6, 2019 through February 17,
2020. With in the second conjunction period, a close
conjunction of one degree orb happens from December 31, 2019 thru
January 23, 2020.
Pluto is a planet of transformation. The
process is irreversible and very subtle. The old must die
for the new to be born. Thus, it brings drastic changes in
our collective moral and spiritual perceptions (consciousness), as Pluto breaks away
from the traditional barriers of our collective prejudices and
Sagittarius being the sign that deals with
religious philosophy and teachings, this is a period of religious
revolution (the way we perceive the surroundings through our
religious lens). And when Pluto conjuncts Saturn, the process of
transformation becomes exceptionally significant, as the manifestation
of the synergy of these two spiritual planets will clearly reflect in
(drastic) events happening all around us (or our world).
Sagittarius, being the sign for justice and
judicial system, the conventional norms of our judicial systems are
likely to come under attack and scrutiny, and transform into to reflect the
new norms of morality and ethics. With Saturn conjunction, Pluto's
energy will accelerate the process of transformation. And such
transformations are inevitably accompanied by painful experiences.
Therefore, the likelihood of war, violence, uprisings, social
conflicts and anxiety filled atmosphere all around the world are
real possibilities, especially in places like Middle-East, and in
particular, in Israeli and Palestine region.
The world financial markets will continue to be
very volatile throughout this year.
In scientific and
technological areas, lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will
find their ways into innovations and discoveries that are aligned with our
collective spiritual progress, as those (new ideas)
will be more focused in areas that will bridge the gap between the science and
morality. The likely areas of research will be in biotechnology, medicine,
spiritual healing, and life-force related activities. A
new wave of philosophers with their new perspectives on living, in general, will certainly
transform our world to a new level of understanding.
next important planetary events are: Saturn-Rahu
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 or Saudi
Arabia are likely to experience social or political unrest. In the
United States, the political Republican party and republicans may go through
unwanted painful experiences during this period.
Pluto-Rahu opposition within three degree orb, occurs during February
16 - May 25 (within three degrees). Similar to Saturn-Rahu opposition it
deals with intense karmic experiences for both individuals and societies or
nations, but such experiences will likely to be very drastic and unbearable.
those who have challenging placements of these planets in their natal
charts, are likely to have intense karmic experiences. These experiences are
extremely intense, and they will certainly (and drastically) change our
comfort zones that we are used to, and after having gone through a period of
struggle and adjustment, we (in a way forced) will likely to arrive at and
must adjust to a new level of living (both materially and
non-materially). Again the idea here is the same as that for Saturn-Rahu
opposition that only through the awareness while going through
these painful experiences,
such individuals can transform their lives by understanding themselves, a
process usually refers as self realization.
On a collective level, an eruption of new waves of
violence in the Palestine-Israel region is likely. 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
When combined, during
April 6-14, all these three (Saturn-Pluto conjunction, Saturn-Rahu and
Pluto Rahu oppositions) planetary combinations overlap, and it would be interesting to witness the
world events during this period from the spiritual transformation
Other planetary events are:
Mars-Uranus conjunction (Feb 11-13) --- A
possibility of sudden outbreak
of a new conflict affecting the United States of America can not be ruled
out. It could be a man-made accident or a mishandling incident by the government.
Rahu-Mars conjunction (June 12-14) --- Both natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise
of an international level political leader are likely.
Pluto-Mars opposition: (June 18-20)--- sudden outbreak of an
undesirable happening, possibilities of both natural and
man-made calamities are likely.
Thus, while painful karmic experiences
of Saturn-Rahu and Pluto-Rahu oppositions will dominate the
events, simultaneously, the year 2019 will be significantly affected by the
subtle but very powerful energy of Saturn-Pluto conjunction spiritually transforming
our world to a new level, a necessary step as a part of
our collective spiritual growth.
Monthly Predictions for
About President Donald Trump and his challenges......
operating planets (the planets that presently affect him most) for January continue to be Saturn and Venus.
January, Saturn will be in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh
house of his progressive chart, and it will be in the 4th house of his ninefold
progressive chart till Jan 22, and then in the fifth house of his
ninefold progressive chart for the rest of the month. Venus will be in sidereal
Scorpio (the 6th
house of his progressive chart) for the entire month.
From Dasa standpoint, Saturn
continues to be unfavorable, being in the seventh house of his progressive
and in the 4th and 5th house of his ninefold progressive
a result, Mr. trump is likely to continue to have challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries
alike. He will
continue to be haunted by Russia probe. He will even get involved in direct
confrontations with people that include not only his adversaries but also his
family members and friends. Frustration, confusion, depression, etc, will
take the center stage for the entire month for him.
The manifestation of the
resident transiting Venus will be reflected in a very inauspicious and
painful period causing him to not only worry about feeling defeated, but becoming
quarrelsome, and forced to face the mounting pressure of legal challenges. A
serious health issue may develop. His involvement and issues with women likely
transiting Rahu will be in conjunct with his natal Venus, confirming the
higher degree of possibility of surfacing his problems with women.
In addition, as
described under the squares of Uranus with the lunar nodes, the
transiting Rahu will be in square with the transiting Uranus till middle of
January, and Rahu and Uranus being in conjunction in the 10th house of his
natal chart, his challenges are likely to multiply
manifold during this month. Also, the transiting Rahu will be in
conjunct for next two months with his natal Venus, and therefore, his problems further multiply when it comes
to governing the country (Venus being the 10th house ruler) and treating
Thus, during January, the transits
of both the progressive and ninefold progressive Saturn are unfavorable, resulting
in a real challenging period. In addition, Venus, being in the 6th house
of his progressive chart, is very inauspicious causing him to experience a
painful period, feeling defeated, quarrelsome, and forced to face mounting legal
challenges. Furthermore, the transiting Saturn
and the transiting Uranus squaring the transiting lunar nodes and the transiting
Rahu in conjunct with his natal Venus, spell
a troubling period for him from legality and insecurity standpoint, resulting in
an extremely challenging,
trying and eventful month for him to deal with
the ongoing Russia probe, immigration, women, suspicious and insecure people around him and
his political agenda.
of Uranus with Lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu (Sept
29 - Jan 15).......
of October, November and December turned out to be
extra-ordinarily chaotic, violent and painful for the USA, especially from
politics and social unrest standpoint (as evidenced by the Supreme
Court nominee hearings about sexual allegations, California wildfires, mass
killing incidents in California, Chicago and other places) as the lunar nodes
(Rahu and Ketu) squared Aries- transiting Uranus during these months. This
period further extends at least until January 15, 2019. This
has been a long three to four month
period due to retrograde Uranus moving almost at the same speed as the
backward moving lunar nodes. And because Uranus happens to be the planet
of USA and lunar nodes being Karmic, it was filled with lot of anxieties and uncertainties culminating into the
capitulation of the current state of politics (Democrats winning the House of
Congress) in the United States as the
national Karma worked out during this long three month
light of President Donald Trump's achievements and challenges so far, in my
opinion, he is the symbol of the current state of the American public sentiment
and the divide.
Despite all the challenges, chaos and his defiance of the established norms, the
reason he is still in power is solely due to the strength of his tenth house
Rahu-Uranus conjunction in his natal chart representing the powerful force
(support of his solid base that totally shares his view of the world) and of
entanglement of his destiny with the country's destiny.
question would then be "would he survive?". My
short answer to this question is "Most likely not". If he does
(representing, for better or worse, the karmic force of the destiny of the
USA), then the manifestation of his survival would certainly be reflected in
the strength of his tenth house Rahu-Uranus conjunction in his natal chart
representing the powerful force (support of his solid base that shares his view
of the world) of entanglement of his destiny with the country's destiny.
I wouldn't be surprised if on one the fine mornings during 2018 or early 2019
(months of January and February or so) we wakeup with his tweet of he quitting his job or resignation or by legally being
removed from the White House due to the fatal Sun-Rahu conjunction in the tenth house
of his natal chart.
important challenging planetary configurations
for January include:
manifestation of the Neptune-Saturn
(Jan 27 - Feb 4) ninefold opposition maybe reflected in rise in covert
activities and natural as well as man-made calamities. Places like Russia and China are likely to
experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries (such as Saudi
Arabia) are likely to
see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious
activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open.
(Jan 7-18) square may mean world religions are likely to be
challenged with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. The 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.
The Saturn-Mars (Jan
19-21) square may become responsible for a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence
around the world,
especially in Iraq and Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an
undesirable happening, and occurrences of both natural and man-made
calamities are strong possibilities.
The manifestation of the Pluto-Mars (Jan
31 - Feb 2) square maybe reflected in natural and man-made calamities
all around the world. Also, warlike climate in some parts of the world is a
important auspicious planetary configuration
for January include:
Pluto-Neptune (Dec 20 - Mar 11) ninefold trine may become responsible for
either in bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major
terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia
and to some extent for China. Also, on technological front, expect some positive
breakthroughs in medical, high technology and biotechnology fields.
Neptune-Rahu (Dec 30 - Jan
7) ninefold trine may be reflected in
religious activities all around
the world with new vigor and energy. Conservatives will
have upper hand over the liberals, China and Russia are likely to see positive
developments occurring in the social and economical fields.
(Jan 1-7) ninefold trine may mean a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
The manifestation of the
Uranus-Saturn (Jan 3-8) ninefold trine maybe 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
Neptune-Saturn (Jan 18 - Feb 13) sextile may become responsible for expansion
of religious activities all around
the world with new vigor and energy. Conservatives will
find ways to expand their agenda without compromising with liberals on sticky issues.
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.
Pluto-Saturn (Jan 28 - Feb 4) ninefold sextile may mean a good period for
European economy. This period is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
The countries that
are more likely to be affected during this month are: Russia, China,
Europe, United States, India, Pakistan and the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia
and Palestine-Israel regions).
Natural and Man-made Calamities........
The natural calamities like extreme weather conditions, wildfires, hurricanes,
heavy rains, snow storms, air crashes as well as man made accidents are more
likely to occur during January
prediction model V (yet to be published) the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if
occur, are likely to occur on
4-5, 7, 9-12, 16, 20-21, 23-31.
note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT). For your convenience,
the earthquake predictions for the entire year 2019 are provided at
calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest, violence, accidents,
and air crashes, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather
conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally intensive droughts,
hurricanes or typhoons, thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires
Both Jupiter and Neptune are considered as auspicious
planets. While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Neptune's energy us is very abstract and subtle. Jupiter-Neptune square occurs
once (actually 2-3 times with in a year's period due to their retrograde
motions) in about 6-7 years. If you have
such square in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these two planets
influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you are certainly going to
experience a transformation (irreversible change) in your beliefs and moral
values that you have been attached to. It's time for marching ahead with a
quantum step in the process of self discovery (or evolution). Embrace this
period with total openness and vulnerability. It's the time of rejuvenation with a
positive force in your life. Enjoy!
18 - Feb 13)
sextile is going to be favorable for those who have these
planets favorably placed in their natal charts. Expect a positive period
that could include promotions and improved prestige in professional and social
fields. Also, a subtle shift in your attitude towards looking at the
things would change for better, and thus help you understand your role in life. You will distinctly notice
and feel positive about yourself and possibly far more relax and content.
