A significant planetary event for June is the perfect conjunction of transiting Saturn and the south lunar node Ketu (and opposition of Saturn and Rahu) in sidereal Sagittarius. Sagittarius being a fire and spiritual sign ruled by Jupiter, it’s about the righteousness and our judicial perception coming under attack. It will be reflected in all aspects of our lives, especially in social, politics and the areas where power and corruption dominates.
It’s a period when karmic forces are under full force, and experiences that typically have no logical explanations resulting in “why it’s happening to me?” are likely to be far more frequent at both individual and collective level. But at the same time, It’s a period when after having gone through painful experiences ultimately patience and perseverance wins!
It’s a period when our prejudices and conditionings are challenged and open up the possibilities to shed them through understanding of “what is” and let go of “what should be or what we like it to be” and the potential for seeing the reality by lifting the fog of illusion around us-a process referred to as self-realization. This is a period when a potential for true transformation (a spiritual experience) happens if we are aware and conscious about around surrounding. More on this below under Saturn-Rahu opposition.
As a result, it’s possible that the collective political, religious and social events all around the world, may go through a process of irreversible transformation (a recent example, Israeli prime-minister Netanyahu going through a difficult period and Israelis may have to go to polling booth again soon to choose their next prime-minister) that might be required to align the forces of nature (Saturn-Ketu-Pluto conjunction), as a next step of our human evolution!
In addition, in June, the transiting Mars will be making conjunction with the transiting north lunar node, Rahu, opposition to Ketu, Pluto as well as to the transiting Saturn. Mars, a fiery and explosive planet, is a natural adversary to Rahu and Saturn. The manifestations of its deadly aspects (conjunction and opposition) with Rahu, Pluto and Saturn are likely to reflect in chaotic events (both natural and man-made calamities; e.g. unprecedented non stop weather calamities in mid and central USA for last 14 days) at collective level and traumatic and painful experiences at individual levels (especially for those who have poor placements of these planets in their natal charts).
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.
Saturn-Mars opposition (June 12-14)—-Natural and man-made calamities all around the world, accidents such as fire burns, gun violence and clashes between rival groups including activists and others.
Pluto-Mars opposition: (June 18-20)— Sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening, possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities are likely. Traumatic, fearful and painful experiences at individual level.
The transit of the lunar node Rahu in sidereal Gemini and Ketu in sidereal Sagittarius (March 8, 2019 – September 25, 2019)…….
The backward moving lunar nodes (which represent the point of intersections of earth’s orbit around the Sun and the Moon’s orbit around the Earth) Rahu and Ketu stay in one sign for approximately 18 to 18 1/2 months, and on March 8, they changed signs (Rahu from Cancer to Gemini and Ketu from Capricorn to Sagittarius). And they remain in their respective signs till September 25, 2020.
Especially for individuals, Rahu and Ketu are considered as karmic planets. Those who have Aries, Leo, Virgo, Libra and Capricorn ninefold (Navamansa) ascendant are likely to be benefited by positive energy of these lunar nodes for next 18 months or so. While Leo and Virgo ninefold ascendant people will likely to see financial gains and professional success, Libra and Aries ascendant people will put their new ideas to work by successfully implementing them. The Capricorn ascendant people will be victorious over their rivals and overcome heavy odds to be successful in whatever they do.
During next next 6 to 8 months the lunar node Rahu will be making oppositions with planets Saturn and Pluto (and simultaneously the lunar node Ketu will conjunct Saturn and Pluto) These opposition and conjunction aspects will be very strong and intense.
The 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.
For 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 realization.
On 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.
The 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.
For 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 their responsibilities.
About President Donald Trump and his challenges……
President Trump’s operating planets (the planets that presently active for him) for June continue to be Saturn, Venus, Pluto and Ketu. While Saturn and Venus will continue to be operating planets for several years, Pluto and Ketu will continue to be till August 29, 2019.
During June, Saturn will be in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh house of his progressive chart, and it will be in the 6th house of his ninefold progressive chart. Venus will be in sidereal Aries (the 11th house of his progressive chart) till June 4, in Taurus (the 12th house of his progressive chart) till June 28 and then in Gemini (the first house of is progressive chart).
From Dasa standpoint, Saturn continues to be unfavorable, being in the seventh house of his progressive chart, but favorable being in the 6th house his ninefold progressive chart. Thus, it’s a mixed picture. Due to being in the 7th house of his progressive chart, Mr. trump will likely to continue to face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries alike. He will still continue to be haunted by Mueller report’s fallout, his income tax returns and business litigations. He will even get involved in direct confrontations with people that include not only his adversaries but also with his cabinet and family members. However, being in the 6th house of his ninefold progressive chart Saturn becomes favorable for him, and therefore, at least to some extent he is likely to have things go his way in politics.
The manifestation of the 11th house resident transiting Venus is favorable for him for personal life happiness standpoint till June 4. The 12th house resident transiting Venus is favorable for him for material happiness including extra marital affairs during June 4-28. However, the transiting Venus will conjunct natal Uranus, Rahu and Sun on June 24, June 26-27 and June 28 respectively, and as a result, Mr. Trump is likely to face challenges from females with increasing frustrations as well as female related issues coming to surface that might prove to be disastrous.
The 7th house resident Pluto in both the progressive and ninefold progressive charts is certainly not positive for him as he will encounter sudden, unexpected and explosive situations, finding them extremely difficult to deal with. In addition, the transiting Pluto is going to be in quincunx with his natal Rahu, making it extraordinarily challenging from politics standpoint. Furthermore, the 7th house resident transiting Ketu that conjunct transiting Saturn will certainly add fuel to fire making the matters worse.
Thus, during June, while the challenging transit of Saturn in his the progressive and the favorable transit of Saturn in his ninefold progressive chart presents a mixed picture, the conjunction of three explosive and operating transiting planets: Saturn, Pluto and Ketu in the 7th house of his progressive chart will create more political and personal challenges from legality and insecurity standpoint, resulting in an yet another trying and frustrating month for him to deal with the fallout from Mueller report, investigations by House democrats into his taxes and business dealings, suspicious and insecure people around him.
In addition, the conjunction of transiting Sun with natal Uranus, Rahu and Sun during June 10-15 may prove to be extremely painful and disastrous for him.
The important challenging planetary configurations for June include Saturn-Rahu (April 25 – Sept 30), Saturn-Mars (June 12-14) and Pluto-Mars (June 18-20) oppositions, and Neptune-Saturn (June 13-22) ninefold opposition; Rahu-Jupiter (June 2-29) quincunx, Pluto-Rahu (May 25 – June 12), Pluto-Uranus (June 19-30) and Pluto-Neptune (June 23 – Sept 21) ninefold quincunxes; Neptune-Jupiter (June 8-23) square; Saturn-Jupiter (June 10-19) and Rahu/Ketu/Jupiter (June 12-20) ninefold squares; Rahu-Mars (June 12-14) conjunction and Neptune-Rahu (June 11-22) ninefold conjunction.
The Saturn-Rahu (April 25 – Sept 30) opposition may become responsible for social or political unrest in places like Russia or China, and also for eruptions of violence incidences at unexpected places stemming from racism and religious hate. In addition, for the Republican Party and republicans in the United States, it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.
The manifestation of Saturn-Mars (June 12-14) opposition may be reflected in a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence, especially in Middle East will be on rise. Outbreak of an undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities are real possibilities.
The cause of Pluto-Mars (June 18-20) opposition may result in a sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening, possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities. The countries that are most likely to be affected during this period would be the Syria, Iraq, Iran, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel, and the United States.
The Neptune-Saturn (June 13-22) ninefold opposition may become responsible for rise in covert activities. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities are very likely. Places like Russia and China are likely to experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries 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.
The manifestation of the Rahu-Jupiter (June 2-29) quincunx may be reflected in more orthodox religious leaders around the world coming under attack or find difficulties in carrying out their activities and in general, keeping people happy.
The Pluto-Rahu (May 25 – June 12), Pluto-Uranus (June 19-30) and Pluto-Neptune (June 23 – Sept 21) ninefold quincunxes may become responsible for: An eruption of new waves of violence in the Palestine-Israel, Syria and Afghanistan-Pakistan regions. And perhaps, towards the end of this period due to Pluto’s transformation process, the resulting changes are likely to become irreversible. Occurrences of natural as well as man-made calamities all around the world, and Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil. The Pluto-Uranus ninefold quincunx could bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against rogue nations in Middle East, and also with its domestic matters. Expect some serious issues that the Trump administration could get tangled with.
The cause of Neptune-Jupiter (June 8-23) square may result in the world religious leaders facing the new challenges that they must deal with. 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.
The Saturn-Jupiter (June 10-19) ninefold square may become responsible formore controversies that test traditional moral values (for instance, abortion debate in the USA) and also religious authorities having difficulty in keeping people happy.
The manifestation Rahu-Mars (June 12-14) conjunction may be reflected in natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives.
The Neptune-Rahu (June 11-22) ninefold conjunction may become responsible for social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China. 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.
The important auspicious planetary configuration for June include Neptune-Rahu (June 1 – July 5) trine and Uranus-Saturn (June 15-20) ninefold trine; Neptune-Saturn (June 2- July 1) sextile, Uranus-Rahu (June 14 -20) and Neptune-Uranus (June 8-25) ninefold sextiles.
The manifestation of the Neptune-Rahu (June 1 – July 5) trine may be reflected in a positive period for Russia and China. Also, most of the technological areas are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries.
The Uranus-Saturn (June 15-20) ninefold trine may become responsible for Democrats and Republicans to agree on something and perhaps pass a bill. This is a great time for the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and domestically.
The Neptune-Saturn (June 2- July 1) sextile may mean expansion of religious activities around the world with new vigor and energy. Conservatives will find ways to expand their agenda without compromising with liberals on sticky issues. Republicans will have upper hand over democrats. 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.
The Neptune-Uranus (June 8-25) ninefold sextile may become responsible for extraordinary time for collective spiritual growth, technological discoveries and inventions. Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this month. For the United States, in general, it’s going to be a remarkable and very successful period.
The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are: The USA, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Palestine-Israel regions), and Europe.
