Although it’s very difficult to predict the influence of planets on a given individual without referring to his or her birth chart the following is intended only as a general guideline. For confirmation, however, you must refer to your birth chart. Based on the assessment of planetary strengths or weaknesses in your birth chart, placement of planets in your current progressive regular and ninefold charts, and the current operating planetary cycles the following may or may not be applicable.
Retrograde Jupiter (May 15 – September 13)
Jupiter became retrograde in sidereal Capricorn on May 15 and with its retrograde motion returns to Sagittarius on July 1, 2020. It remains retrograde in Sagittarius until September 13.
While in Capricorn, being a cardinal and earth sign ruled by Saturn, Jupiter in Capricorn (despite debilitated in Capricorn) has a tendency to enhance material prosperity. But during its retrograde period in Capricorn and given the Pluto’s presence in Capricorn, the rate of destruction of material wealth is likely to be more significant.
For those who have a well placed Jupiter in their birth charts and if Jupiter’s period is currently in operation, such people are likely to feel the deceleration in their progress. Remember it’s only temporary! Need to put more energy in to whatever you do to achieve what you need to achieve.
On the world scene, particularly in religious world, “confusion” will dominate and things are likely to move at much slower rate. The world economy may experience a slower growth.
Retrograde Saturn (May 11 – September 29)
Saturn became retrograde on May 11 in sidereal Capricorn, and is going to stay retrograde till September 29 in Capricorn. For those who have a well placed Saturn in their birth charts and if Saturn’s period is currently in operation, then they are likely to experience slow progress. Best way to deal with retrograde Saturn is to put more energy in to whatever you do to work towards your goal.
On the world scene, generally, the projects that deal with expansion are likely to either stay on hold or experience sluggish progress. In religious world, things are likely to move at frustratingly slow rate. In the political arena what may seem like progress will turn out to be a disaster.
Pluto-Neptune ninefold quincunx (June 8 – July 8)
For those who have quincunx, square, or opposition of Pluto and Neptune in their birth charts, and for those whose Gochar (transit) chart is influenced by either of these planets are likely to experience a subtle setback due to deceptive surroundings around you. Such quincunx can become a very strong force in creating an illusion and, as a result, confusion around and with in you. It can become very difficult to stay cool, and there’s not a whole lot you can do about it except by not venturing out into anything new and bear with the current situation with a grin.
On a collective level, outbreak of violence and terrorist activities in Middle east likely, especially in Syria, Iraq, Israel and Palestine region. Also, the occurrences of natural as well as man-made calamities are more likely. Some of the east-European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.
Pluto-Jupiter Conjunction (June 19 – July 9)
This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This conjunction could become responsible for a unique transformation in the field of religion as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the fields of religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms.
In your birth chart if Jupiter and Pluto are either in conjunction or opposition, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your Gochar (transit) chart, then you are perhaps standing on the thresh-hold of a new era that’s about to begin in your life. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new and a very different experience in that particular field. Be ready to accept this new settings with new challenges as well as the rewards that come with them.
On a collective level, religious and academic and to some extent social fields are very likely to see changes happenings in their respective fields. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic, but the majority of us are likely to embrace this new wave of change and likely to enjoy it.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold opposition (June 30 – July 5)
The Saturn-Uranus ninefold opposition is mostly unfavorable for those who have such opposition or square in their birth charts. In addition, if the planet Uranus or Saturn is affecting your life via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in the areas which are affected by these planets as shown in your natal chart. Such people should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such opposition can make things so miserable and difficult for you that you are most likely not forget them in your entire life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin until this period is passed.
On a collective level, the United States of America, Russia or China may experience social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising among them.
Uranus-Jupiter ninefold trine (July 4-7)
This auspicious and inspirational ninefold trine of Jupiter with Uranus is excellent for academic, research oriented knowledge seekers. In addition, this trine is good for all world religions as well as for people who are engaged in activities that help us expand morally, socially as well as materially.
For those who have well placed Jupiter and Uranus in their birth chart (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to have spiritual experiences during this period. People involved in the spiritual and humanitarian activities are likely to experience a sudden boost in their daily activities, and religious authorities who are more open to new ideas and people’s concerns are going to be well recognized by societies.
On a collective level, spiritual, religious, academic, and social fields are very likely to enjoy the new and positive changes occurring in their respective fields.
Saturn-Jupiter ninefold sextile (July 6-17)
Jupiter-Saturn ninefold sextile is favorable for those who have such sextile in their natal charts. A proper balance between the optimism and conservatism will protect you from becoming over optimistic (or aggressive) as well as over protective. If you have such sextile in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the Gochar (transit) chart then you are likely to enjoy this period with full vigor and success as it would seem to come to you naturally. So enjoy!
On a collective level, religions around the world will enjoy their activities with positive experiences. People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold trine (July 11-24)
Uranus-Pluto ninefold trine is going to be very favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts.

It’s time to jump in and enjoy this period.
On a collective level, this is an extraordinary time for technological discoveries and inventions. Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this month. For the United States, in general, this month is going to be remarkable and successful month.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (July 16 – Aug 2)
If you have a Neptune-Rahu quincunx (with either of these planets being especially in the sixth, eighth, or the twelfth house) in your birth chart, and if your Gochar (transit) chart is influenced by one of these planets, then you are likely to experience instability in your life caused due to sudden change in your routine activities and deceptive surroundings. Such experiences might turn out to be very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit to anything new and stay low key and be very watchful during this period.
On a collective level, social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out. Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of Neptune’s secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.
Neptune-Jupiter sextile (July 19 – Aug 6)
This auspicious sextile is good for all world religions as well as for people who are engaged in activities that help us expand morally, socially as well as materially.
For those who have well placed Jupiter and Neptune in their birth chart (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to enjoy a very positive experience during this period. People involved in the religious activities are likely experience a sudden boost in their daily activities, and religious authorities are going to be well recognized by societies.
On a collective level, religious, academic, and social fields are very likely to enjoy the new and positive changes occurring in their respective field.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold square (July 21 – Aug 11)
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Neptune squares Uranus, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are very likely to be affected by this ninefold square. Depending on the strength of these planets and houses they occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new challenge in that particular field signified by the house they occupy in your natal chart. Be ready to face this powerful and spontaneous challenge. Some of the likely scenarios are unexpected move (change of residence), unexpected job change (or change of surrounding at work place), meeting a person who is going to influence your life in a very dramatic fashion, unexpected financial windfall or loss, unexpected severe depression, etc.
At a collective level, the manifestation of Neptune-Uranus ninefold square will reflect in sudden change (either positive and negative) in relationship between USA and Russia (and countries of former Soviet Union) and magnificent advances in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold sextile (Uranus-Ketu ninefold trine) (July 23-31)
Uranus-Rahu ninefold sextile is going to be very favorable for those who have lunar nodes favorably placed in their natal charts with respect to Uranus. If such placing is connected to the first house, second house, ninth house, tenth house, or eleventh house then expect monetary as well as power gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. The ideas that you always wanted to pursue but somehow could never get started….now is the time to follow that dream. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period. It’s time to jump in and enjoy this period.
Saturn-Rahu quincunx (July 25 – Sept 16)
The Saturn-Rahu quincunx is a challenging aspect for those who have such quincunx in their birth charts. In addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting you via your Gochar (transit) chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in areas affected by these planets as indicated in your natal chart. Such people should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such quincunx can make things so miserable and difficult for you that you are never going to forget them in your life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin until this period is passed.
On a collective level, Russia or China may experience social or political unrest. Also, in the United State for the Republican Party and republicans including for the republican president, it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.
Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square (July 26-30)
While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Uranus’s impulse is very sudden and with severe intensity. 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 have an experience of an extreme transformation (irreversible change) in your beliefs and moral values that you have been attached to. This period is challenging. If you overcome the challenge, then it’s time for marching ahead with a quantum leap in the process of self discovery (or evolution).
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.
Neptune-Ketu ninefold trine (Neptune-Rahu ninefold sextile) (July 27 – Aug 18)
For those who have well placed Neptune, and if she is in trine with any of the two lunar nodes, and are presently being influenced by any of these planets (Neptune, Rahu, or Ketu) through their current operating cycles, are likely to experience a very positive period. Rise in self confidence, feeling empowered, strong intuitive power, and in general feeling great about everything around are some of the symptoms that you are likely to enjoy.
Collectively on global scene, this period is very positive for Russia and China. Also, most of the technological areas are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy and create a very healthy atmosphere around us.
