Saturn Gandanta Again

May ended with Saturn Mars opposition and Venus leaving its long comfortable and calming exaltation in Pisces. June has to to contend with Saturn making its second of three gandanta crossings on 21 June as it moves back from Sagittarius to Scorpio. This is a very complex transit and the world feels less secure. It can be stormy, destructive and intense, the wise should take this time to intensify their spiritual, meditative and yogic practices and exercise extreme caution. Focus the mind on positive and truthful.

Mercury going into Taurus on 3 June, to Gemini on 19 June and Jupiter going direct in Virgo on 9 June are positive factors that can keep the balance during this turbulent month. Mercury represents the intellect and Jupiter rules wisdom that we need to use it properly during this time – being wise and analytical is the best option.

We must handle the next few months with care, June has Saturn in Gandanta, July has debilitated Mars and August is the big month of extreme planets with eclipses, Mars Rahu conjunctions and more – so choices are limited for now and we should be conscious of our own responsibility in reacting to the coming transits too.

Saturn Retrogrades Back from Sagittarius to Scorpio

2017 is a complex year with three transits of Saturn over Gandanta points. The first one was in January and now Saturn moves back over these sensitive degrees again on 21 June and will complete the transit on 26 October. This Gandanta crossing is by a retrograde Saturn – retrograde planets are imbalanced by nature, therefore expect it to be more troublesome.

9 June to 1 July – Saturn is in Gandanta degrees. Moves back from Sagittarius to Scorpio – destructive, stormy and uncertain if we allow our subconscious to overrule our good intentions. Whereas on a higher path, we can use this time to be more meditative, yogic and spiritual – use these transition times to do good for the world and those around us. The main thing to recognize is that the situation is being faced by all – our responsibility is in how we react to these uncertainties.

21 June – Saturn is at 0°Sagittarius and at exact gandanta.

When looking back at the first gandanta crossing by Saturn in January, we can note that many of the choices Donald Trump made at the time are coming to haunt him now – his Presidency is defined by his inauguration with Saturn gandanta and post inauguration decisions that are creating major uncertainty. Donald Trump must tread very carefully at this time as not only he is facing this gandanta transit, Saturn in moving back to his Moon and giving him intense Sade Sati challenges.

Auarius Lagna should take extra care during this time. They feel unsettled but now is not the time to make major changes or choices. Best to allow this time to pass and concentrate on study, gaining knowledge, doing good, focusing on the day to day issues and thinking before reacting to situations.2017 is a complex year with three transits of Saturn over Gandanta points.

Mercury Influence in June

Mercury is one of the few planets that is strong in June. Mars, Sun and Jupiter are in Gemini and they being influenced by him.

Mercury is the planet of intellect and thinking. He reflects the way we think – Mercury has a special quality that he gets easily influenced by the company he keeps. As he is one of the key planets from whom we take inspiration in June, we must be aware that our thoughts and ideas are easily manipulated and open to outside influences, so we should strive to keep them pure and free in order to make the right choices.

Jupiter is in Virgo and will be direct from 6 June. His wisdom is telling us to give deep thought to matters and analyze them before decsions and actions.

3 to 18 June – Mercury is in Taurus and alone with no other planet. This gives him strength to be independent and strong. Mercury loves the security of Taurus, feels the support and steadiness.

18 June to end of June – Mercury moves into Gemini, its own house. This is usually a strong position for Mercury but it is now with the Sun and Mars, - two planets of power. Sun can combust him and Mars can bring anger – both create desire for power, passions and impulsive thinking. In June, we must guard against our impulses and avoid giving into encouragement from others (can be from Radio, TV and Internet too) to give vent to our negative compulsions.

21 June – Mercury is combusted by the Sun, hidden behind its light, where it moves too fast. 21 June is also the day Saturn is in 0°Sagittarius and deep Gandanta. – day to take special care

28 June – Mercury Mars conjunction in Gemini – Mercury Mars are inimical to each other, Mercury likes to think and Mars acts – their actions can lead to impulsive thinking, anger and frustration –day to be thoughtful and cool.
