Monthly Astrological Insights for June 2021

Date Posted: May 31, 2021

June 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 respectively. 

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) 

On May 30, the planet Mercury became retrograde in sidereal Gemini. It will stay retrograde in Gemini/Taurus until June 23. Typically retrograde Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Gemini means 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 Mercury 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 lunar node 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.

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.

Aries 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 a new virus . Unless these energies are properly understood, the man-made calamities might include increased friction between world powers (USA-Russia and China) perhaps 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 is strong.

As far as the United States is concerned, since 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.

Jupiter’s transit in the sidereal Aquarius  (Phase 1: April 5 – Sept 15)

On April 5, Jupiter left (sidereal) Capricorn and temporarily 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.

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 philosophical and collective spiritual advancement point of view. In addition, Aquarius being a fixed sign, the resulting philosophical influences will likely to be long lasting.  

On individual levels, 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.

About President Joe Biden and his challenges…….

For President Joe Biden, the planetary picture looks to be a mixed one for him for this month.

Given the  Gochar chart dispositions of the 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 include humanitarian 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 stability. 

The energy of Mars will be favorable for him in achieving his goals after a significant effort and fight in congress in getting some important bills passed. The lunar node Ketu will reasonably  favorable in having less obstacles in governing the country.

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 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.

Overall, 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.

Planetary Energies for Individuals  

Uranus-Saturn Square (June 2-25)

Saturn-Uranus square is unfavorable for you if you have such a square or opposition in your birth chart. In addition, if the planet Uranus or Saturn is affecting your life via your Gochar (transit)  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.  You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period.  Such square or opposition can make things so miserable and difficult for you that most likely you are not going to 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 till this period is passed. 

Mars-Pluto Opposition (June 4-6)

These few days of short period is likely to be very frustrating for those who have Mars-Pluto opposition, conjunction or square in their natal charts. Typically this opposition is very unfavorable. Unexpected problems are likely to occur with astonishing speed and without any notice.  For those who have such opposition or conjunction in their birth chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current Gochar (transit) chart need to be on guard. Stay very low key, not make any new commitment, and avoid taking any sort of risk. Also, experiences like a sudden incident of fire, or an accident involving explosive material are likely. 

Mars-Saturn Opposition (June 30 – July 2)

Mars-Saturn opposition, for no apparent reason, changes a perfectly normal and healthy situation in to the one with a severe tension and friction. If you have such opposition in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these planets influencing you through the current Gochar (transit) chart, then you certainly need to be on guard. Simply lay back and do nothing.  If you must involve in an unwanted situation, be extra careful and try to minimize the damage. Experiences like fire burns, rape, accidents, loss of precious things, and monetary disasters are real possibilities.  (More)
