Although it’s very difficult to predict the influence of planetary energy 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 Gochar (transit) and ninefold Gochar (transit) chart and the current operating planets, the following may be applicable.
Saturn-Rahu ninefold trine (Saturn-Ketu sextile) (June 28 – Aug 23)
Saturn-Rahu ninefold trine is usually favorable for those who have lunar nodes favorably placed in their natal charts with respect to Saturn. 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 idea that you always wanted to pursue your desired goals 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.
Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu squares (July 1 – Sept 2)
The squares of Pluto with the lunar nodes are generally have tendencies to destroy the present setting of life and transform it in to a totally new one. Those who have better placed lunar nodes and their connections with Pluto, are likely to adapt well to this new change and move to their next level of evolution while others will likely to struggle and may find the change unbearable. Perhaps the best way to deal with this situation is to stay alert and be extremely cautious in dealing with your surroundings that affect you. Avoid taking any new risk during this period. And probably be prepared for situations that are going to get worse before they get better with new direction in life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you wanted to begin till this period is passed.
On a collective level, a new wave of renewed violence between Israel and Palestinians, as well as outbreak of terrorism around the world during these ten days are real possibilities.
Neptune-Jupiter ninefold sextile (Aug 2-7)
This auspicious ninefold 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 charts (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to enjoy a 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 fields.
Saturn-Jupiter ninefold square (Aug 12-15)
The energy of the Jupiter-Saturn ninefold square is typically responsible for loss of motivation, insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness and difficulty in keeping the faith in yourself. This is like a test period. A period that can be viewed a real positive from self discovery standpoint since it will require you to bring best out of you to deal with situations around you. If you have such a square in your birth chart and if any one of these planets is presently active in your Gochar (transit) chart, then you need to look at the things with a different attitude. The best thing to do is to stay the course of present action without making new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure of yourself, and unhappy with family. Well, that’s how you going to feel this time. Keep your faith strong!
On a collective level, religions around the world will find difficulty in carrying out their activities, more controversies that test traditional moral values are likely to occur, and in general, religious authorities will have difficulty in keeping people happy.
Rahu-Jupiter ninefold quincunx (Aug 12-17)
Jupiter-Rahu ninefold quincunx is going to be unfavorable for those who have such placement in their natal charts. Insecure feelings, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness, difficulty in keeping the faith in God are some of the symptoms of these squares. If you have such quincunx in your birth chart and if any one of these two planets is presently active through the transit (Gochar) chart then you need to look at the things with a different attitude. The best thing to do is to stay the course of present action without making any new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure to yourself, and unhappy with family, well, that’s how you going to feel this time. Keep your faith strong!
On a collective level, religions around the world will find difficulty in carrying out their activities and in general, keeping people happy.
Pluto-Jupiter ninefold trine (Aug 15-24)
This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This auspicious ninefold trine 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 field 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 trine or sextile, and if either of these planets is currently active in 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 setting 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 coming in their respective fields. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic, but a majority of us are going to embrace this new wave of change and are very likely to enjoy it.
Neptune-Mars opposition (Aug 21-23)
This short period may turn out to be deadly for those who have unfavorable placing of Mars with respect to Neptune in their natal charts. Expect subtle but very strong and negative force (deception) working against you that surely would bring you misfortune. Stay low key and avoid taking any unwanted or unnecessary risk. For those who have well placed Neptune-Mars configurations in their birth charts would likely to be rewarded with fame and good times.
On a collective level, covert activities will be at their peak. China and Russia are likely to experience some very drastic changes in the political arena, and those changes will influence the psyche of those nations at a deeper level.
Mars-Rahu quincunx (Aug 23-24)
During these few days Mars quincunxes Rahu. Typically the energy of Mar’s quincunx with a lunar node becomes responsible for an unfavorable and unfortunate situation in general. If you have such a quincunx or opposition in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these planets active in your Gochar (transit) chart, then you need be very careful about the matters indicated by the respective houses in your birth chart. Probably the best thing to do is to lay low key, not make any new commitment and avoid taking any sort of risk.

Mars-Saturn quincunx (Aug 31 – Sept 2)
Mars-Saturn quincunx can be responsible for a situation of tension and friction. For those who have such quincunx in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets active in their Gochar (transit) chart, then they certainly need to be careful in dealing with the surroundings around them. Perhaps simply lay back and do nothing. If you must involve in an unwanted but unavoidable 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.
On the world scene, a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan is likely. Terrorism and violence, especially in Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an undesirable event and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities are real possibilities.
