Monthly Prediction for July 2000

Date Posted: July, 1st 2000 

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 general guidance.  For confirmation, however, you must refer to your birth chart, and based on the assessment of planetary strength or weakness, placement of planets in your current progressive regular and nine fold charts, and the current operating planetary cycles the following may or may not be applicable.  

Jupiter Saturn Conjunction:  

Although Jupiter-Saturn conjunction is becoming less and less strong the following still applies, at least through July.

Jupiter and Saturn are planets of fairly opposite characteristics.  While Jupiter tends to be expansionist, optimist, open, social, amiable, and respected, Saturn is a planet of contraction, pessimist, reserved, laconic, introvert, patient, slow but sure.  Of course both planets when well placed in the birth chart is going to make the person very balanced and successful. For famous people in almost all walks of life usually have both Saturn and Jupiter reasonably well placed.

If in your birth chart Jupiter and Saturn are in conjunction with in two degrees then following is more likely to be applicable:

If you are born with Cancer, Virgo, or Capricorn as sidereal ninefold ascendant, and if Jupiter and Saturn reside in first, fourth, fifth, ninth, tenth, or eleventh house in your birth chart, you are likely to experience a great time of your life.  Everything is likely to come to you effortlessly! The entire month is really positive for you!

If you are born with Taurus, Gemini, Libra, Scorpio, or Sagittarius as sidereal nine fold ascendant, and if Jupiter and Saturn reside in the first, second, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth, or twelfth house in your birth chart then you are likely to face serious challenges, misfortunes during this month. In general,  disappointment, frustration, loss of money, loved ones, etc. are more likely.  It’s best to stay low key, spend time in your hobbies, or return to those low priority and low risky projects that you put on the back burner due to lack of time.

Retrograde Mercury: 

Until July 18 planet Mercury remains retrograde in its motion in Gemini.  Typically retrograde Mercury means delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, obstacles, and disappointment in daily chores.  If you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart, and if your current planetary cycle provides the results of Mercury then you are more likely to experience the effects of retrograde Mercury through July 18. 

On July 8, Venus enters in sidereal zodiac sign Cancer; and on July 16 and July 22, Sun and Mars respectively join Venus in Cancer. Thus during the latter half of the month there will be three planets (Mercury remains in Gemini all month) in Cancer.  Cancer being water and moving sign, and ruled by Moon, expect lot of positive developments for those who those who have either Cancer rising or Cancer as tenth house sign in their ninefold birth chart.

Mars – Rahu Conjunction (and Mars – Ketu Opposition): 

Mars Rahu conjunction occurs once about every 19 to 20 months.  For those (especially people in army, military, navy, airforce, engineers who deal with fire, construction workers, commanders, etc.,) who have both predominant Mars and Rahu are likely to experience some extreme situations (either very positive or very negative) during July 21-July 23 period.
