Monthly Astrological Insights for June 2022

Date Posted: May 31, 2022

In light of recent Uvalde elementary school shooting in Texas that killed 19 children and two teachers, it is important to note that due to the energy of Capricorn Pluto, Saturn’s entry in Aquarius starting on April 28, the manifestations of these energies are clearly reflected in the senseless killing of elementary school children, and as a result, unsettling political climate in the USA with perpetually reoccurring gun violence and gun control issue. Another aspect of this tragic event that clearly demonstrates the working of retrograde Mercury (miscommunication, misinformation and delays) and therefore, the delayed response of the law enforcement officers at the scene despite 911 calls from children inside the school and desperate pleas from the frantic parents just outside the school witnessing the massacre as being unfolded. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more to come about this event after Mercury gains its average speed on June 11.

Retrograde Mercury (May 10 – June 3) 

On May 10, the planet Mercury turned retrograde in sidereal Taurus. It stays retrograde in Taurus till June 3. Typically retrograde Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointments in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Taurus means more frustrating periods for working people, farmers, young couples, and females in general. 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. Usually the energy of Mercury doesn’t come back to normal until it reaches its average speed after becoming direct and that is going to be by June 11.

In addition, if you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart and if Mercury is currently as your active 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. 

Is Russian-Ukraine war and senseless killings… going away?

In early part of June, it may seem that the war between Russia and Ukraine is significantly slowing down. That’s just the Neptunian deception.  As we get closer to the last week of June, the war is likely to get accelerated and the bombings of civilian areas in Ukraine rising due to the manifestations of energies of Uranus-Rahu conjunction (within three degrees) in the sidereal Aries, and the same time Mars entry in Aries.

Another significant planetary event of June begins in the fourth week of June due to the deadly gathering of Uranus, the lunar node Rahu and Mars in sidereal Aries. The political turmoil and social unrest in the United States that include racial and gun violence, natural and man-made calamities around the world including west coast wild fires, senseless killings in Ukraine war etc., are likely to be very intensive. For the USA in general and democrats and the Democratic Party in particular, this period may prove to be extremely challenging one. This period may last through the middle of August.


Rahu-Uranus-Mars conjunction in sidereal Aries (June 21 – Sept 20)

The north lunar node, Rahu will conjunct Uranus in sidereal Aries with in three degrees during June 21 – Sept 20, and within one degree during July 13 – Aug 9.  In addition, Mars enters sidereal Aries on June 27. This is one of the deadliest combinations of three major malefics coming together in the fire sign Aries, and Rahu’s karmic energy will certainly be on display during this conjunction period.  It will certainly affect the political climate (Mars) of the United States (Uranus) in a big way as this period directly confronts with the country’s Karma (Rahu).

The political turmoil and social unrest in the United States, natural and man-made calamities around the world including west coast wild fires, racial violence in the United States, senseless killings in Ukraine war etc., are likely to be very intensive during this period. For democrats and the Democratic Party this period may prove to be extremely challenging one. 

Neptune’s Entry in Sidereal Pisces

One of the extraordinary planetary events of 2022 is the transit of the modern planet Neptune from the sidereal zodiac sign Aquarius to the next zodiac sign Pisces. Although it is going to be in Pisces for only about 5 months in 2022, Neptune being the spiritual planets of our solar system that deal more with heart than mind, it will certainly affect the matters related to Pisces in a significant way. 

Pisces being a water and mutable sign ruled by Jupiter, some of its significant characteristics are: divine, fruitful, fertile, emotional, honest, outspoken, religious, spiritual, nonviolent, polite, modest, moody, affectionate, hermit, psychic, water, compassion, love, heart connection, non-verbal communication and introvert. These qualities complement very well with qualities of Neptune that include: spiritual, intuitive, divine, psychic, magical, highly emotional, moody, clairvoyant, inspiration, imaginative, love, compassionate and mystical. 

As a result, a subtle and slow change in our collective moral and spiritual perceptions is certainly going to be manifested in the way we never experienced before. This era (next 14 years) will be remembered as the period of spiritual inspiration and transformation. Interestingly, this era also complements well with the era of Pluto’s transit in sidereal Capricorn (a sign ruled by spiritual Saturn) that runs in parallel during the same time. The way we have been used to deal with religions will no longer be our norms.  Our moral codes will be greatly influenced by our collective spiritual experiences. And in that sense a subtle but most effective transformation of world morality during this unique era of 14 years is likely to take us to a level where the norms solely based on spiritual experiences will dictate and guide our lives with new level of understanding.  

Pisces, being the sign for poets, musicians, singers, monks, religious leaders, spiritual leaders, nurses, nuns, social workers, caregivers, saints, psychics, actors, sailors and ship captains, these respective fields will go through significant transformations. And these transformations will be reflected in the new norms of morality and ethics, expansion of our collective psychic abilities and mystical experiences keeping in line with steady progress in our ability to directly perceive truth. Also, creativity in areas of music will likely complement our spiritual progress. 

In scientific and technological areas, a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas coupled with mystical experiences will find their way into innovations and discoveries.  However, it will be the first time the scientific and technological research will be more focused in areas that will bridge the gap between the science and morality. The likely areas of research will be in spiritual healing, and life-force related activities. The return to the holistic and Ayurvedic practices and alternate medicines will be significant. A new wave of philosophers and philanthropist with their new perspectives on living, in general, will certainly transform our world in next 14 years with a new level of understanding of life.

On the downside, the religious leaders and social reformers may tend to form cults and spread cult like activities, rise in organized religion scandals, deceptive activities under the disguise of promise of spiritual experiences are likely to be on rise in certain parts of the world.  The scandals of the secretive collaboration between the medical doctors and pharmaceutical industries will be exposed. The increase usage of mind altering drugs, disregard for social and to some extent moral responsibility, rise in mental disorders, and losing the touch with reality are some of the likely symptoms of the negative side of Neptune. 

The influence of the Neptunian energy will be reflected in profound changes that are likely to occur in authoritarian countries like Russia and China in next 14 years. The authoritarianism will be challenged and people in power of authority are likely to lose their power in coming years. In addition, the organized religions will likely to be come under tremendous pressure to abandon their norms that have been the hindrances in transforming our humanity to universal love. 

On individual level for those who have water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) as their ascendant in their natal ninefold (Navamansh) chart should get ready for a brand new and long lasting (14 years) cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Neptune is a dominant planet in your birth charts. The changes that might occur would be very subtle and would deal with your new or renewed interest in spirituality, openness, psychic abilities to perceive truth, divine experiences, transformed perceptions and beliefs and the way of living.

President Biden’s challenges in June

President Joe Biden’s current Dasa cycles are: Jupiter major, Rahu intermediate and  Moon’s sub cycle. The planets in the Nakshatras (constellations) ruled by Jupiter are: Jupiter and Mercury; in the Nakshatras ruled by Rahu are: Mars and Ketu; in the Nakshatras ruled by is Saturn. Thus, the activation of energies of Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Ketu and Saturn are expected to be reflected in President’s activities and actions during June.

With Libra as his ninefold (Navamansh) ascendant, the neutral Jupiter will in the 6th house of his Gochar (transit) chart and favorable Mercury in the 8th for the entire month. The 6th house Mars will be favorable almost through the entire (June 27) month, but the fifth house Saturn may become responsible for political confusion and disappointment.

Given the ninefold transit (Gochar) chart dispositions of his active planets he is likely to travel (maybe abroad), face more difficulties in dealing with his adversaries, and a stressful period from the health standpoint. However, the 8th house Mercury in his transit chart will successfully overcome the challenges brought up by his adversaries and restore his confidence in governing the country.

For him the good news is that Mars is looking to be really positive in successfully dealing with international as well as domestic political challenges as he gets empowered by success at home and abroad. On the other hand, the first house Saturn in his ninefold transit chart may become responsible for more political challenges to be faced, some health issues and stressful travel.

Overall, his performance for June is going to be slightly better than May as he simultaneously deals with both the domestic and international challenges with mixed results.

Global Insights……..

The important challenging planetary configurations for June include: Pluto-Neptune (May 13 – Jun 4) ninefold quincunx; Neptune-Saturn (April 29 – June 18) and Pluto-Uranus (June 27 – July 6) ninefold squares

The manifestation of the Pluto-Neptune (May 13 – Jun 4) ninefold quincunx will likely to be reflected in an ongoing violence in Ukraine and an outbreak of violence and terrorist activities in the Middle East, especially in Israel and Palestine region. Also, the occurrences of natural as well as man-made calamities are likely. Some of the east-European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.

The Neptune-Saturn (April 29 – June 18) ninefold square doesn’t bode well for China and Russia from the economy and social stability standpoint.  Also, a deceptive move by Russia is likely to play a significant role in the Russia-Ukraine war.

The Pluto-Uranus (June 27 – July 6) ninefold square may become responsible for a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with respect to its war against terrorism and racial hate agenda. There will be a transformation of political strategy that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda, and also foreign policy matters of this administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the current administration could get tangled with.

The important auspicious planetary configurations for June include Pluto-Saturn (May 15 – June 8) and (June 25 – July 20) ninefold trines; Pluto-Rahu (May 20 – June 5) ninefold sextile.

The Pluto-Saturn (May 15 – June 8) and (June 25 – July 20) ninefold trines may become responsible for a good period for European economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

The energy of the Pluto-Rahu (May 20 – June 5) ninefold sextile may become responsible for growing world economy and progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries)

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  Russia, Ukraine, the United States, Europe, China and the Middle Eastern countries, especially Israel and Palestine region.
