A weak and partial lunar eclipse occurs on July 7 approximately during the hours of 7:00 to 11:00 GMT. It’s a very weak eclipse, and it will be visible in the both American continents. Since it’s a weaker type it’s not expected to influence the world events in significantly negative way.

This eclipse is important since the Sun and Moon will be within half a degree from Ketu, the Southern or descending node in the sidereal zodiac sign Cancer. Consequently this eclipse, according to Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Cancer rising or Cancer as moon sign.
For those who have the lunar nodes in conjunction with either Sun or Moon should watch-out. It’s not a good day! Take extra precaution and avoid any sort of outdoor activity requiring you to get out of house.

Neptune-Jupiter conjunction (May 14 – July 23)
Both Jupiter and Neptune are considered as auspicious planets. While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Neptune’s influence on us is very abstract and subtle. Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurs once (actually 2-3 times with in a year’s period due to their retrograde motions) in about 13-14 years. For those who have such conjunction in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle are certainly going to experience a transformation (irreversible change) of their beliefs and moral values that they 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!
On the world scene, world religions are likely to be challenged with earthshaking ideas that they 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.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (June 27 – July 5)

Unexpected problems are likely to occur with astonishing speed and without any notice. For those who have such quincunx, opposition or conjunction in their birth chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle need to be on guard.

In any event it’s going to be a irreversible event.
On a collective level, expect another outbreak of violence and terrorist activities in Middle-East, a good possibility of natural as well as man-made calamities, and to some extent, war-like climate in some part of the world. Tension between Israelis and Palestinians will remain unabated. Some of the east-European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.

This quincunx can become dangerous, and ruin your plans and bring about the unexpected disaster in every which way. In short during this period you have been tested. If you have very strong and positively placed lunar nodes and Uranus in your birth chart, then perhaps you need not worry.
