Planetary News June 2019 from Komilla Sutton

Tumultuous Planets

June is the most challenging month of 2019 as Saturn Ketu will oppose Mars Rahu precisely on 14 June followed immediately by Mercury Rahu and Mercury Mars conjunction. Later Sun will conjoin with Mars Rahu too. Saturn Ketu continues in super close conjunction all month, and then Mars gets debilitated, and July is the month of eclipses. So overall the planetary transits are tumultuous and volatile.

To know how they will impact you personally other factors have to be taken into account, your personal chart and where these conjunctions are occurring, the dasha you are running and most importantly, how you react to the situations and deal with them.

Key Dates in June are:

Saturn Ketu is in close conjunction all month.

  • 1st – Mercury moves into Gemini
  • 4th – Venus in Taurus. Malavya Mahapurusha Yoga for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
  • 4th to 5th – Moon is in Gemini with Mars Rahu Mercury and opposite Saturn Ketu, Can be emotionally tough
  • 7th – Mars in Gemini (see more below)
  • 10th – Sun Jupiter opposition - positive
  • 14th - Mars Rahu conjunction and opposite to Saturn Ketu (See below)
  • 15th – Sun in Gemini
  • 16th – Mercury Rahu conjunction
  • 17th – Mercury Mars Conjunction
  • 17th to 18th - Moon with Saturn Ketu opposite Rahu Mars
  • 20th – Mercury in Cancer to 26 August. Mercury will retrograde in Cancer later in July.
  • 22nd – Mars in Cancer Debilitated to 8 August
  • 23rd – Jupiter in Scorpio Venus in Taurus opposition
  • 28th – Venus in Gemini

The Big Clash of Saturn Ketu and Mars Rahu

14 June – Mars Rahu will conjoin in Gemini and as Saturn Ketu are opposing it in Sagittarius – this is a big clash of titans – all of them with their own agendas and not giving ground to each other. This is a volatile, stressful and aggressive transit. As all of us will be dealing with this transit, we could see some areas of the world in crisis with unsettled politics and aggressive stances which can lead to negative consequences if those in power are not exercising caution and care.

I am suggesting that all of us need to be careful from 10 to 20 June 2019 as there are many planetary clashes and the planetary energy is disturbed – see below for Mercury too.

The signs impacted are Gemini and Sagittarius as they are hosting the planets. Aries, Scorpio, Gemini, Virgo, Capricorn and Aquarius as their rulers are involved in the clash. However, Scorpio has the blessing of Jupiter transiting and Venus opposite, so they will be able to deal with the transit in a better way.

If you have Ascendant Sun and Moon in any of these signs, then you will experience them more intensely.

Mercury under Extreme Stress in Gemini

1 to 20 June - Mercury in Gemini

While Mercury is strong in Gemini, this year it will be under extreme stress, and both Rahu and Mars are in Gemini and Saturn Ketu opposite. Mars can bring anger, frustration and volatility and Rahu anxiety and worry. Mercury is a planet that quickly gets influenced by the company it keeps; therefore, there will be a tendency for Mercury to act like them. Mercury rules our thinking, and this can veer from aggressive, impulsive from Mars, Ambitions and anxious from Rahu, Spiritual and idealistic from Ketu and depressive and hardworking from Saturn. Too many influences and all come to a crescendo from 16 to 18 June when Mercury first conjoins with Rahu on 16th and then with Mars from 17th to 19th.

Gemini and Virgo need to be very careful of their thought process, anxieties. It would be best to keep calm and not make any decisions, and too many things are pulling you in different directions.

Jupiter, Venus and Sun Avoid the Clash

Jupiter is out of this conflict entirely. As a benefic retrograde planet, it is powerful to be positive. Venus and Sun avoid the conflict in June. Sun is being aspected to 14 June by Jupiter, keeping it under positive aspects. Sun moves into Gemini on 14 June but does not make exact opposition till July and the eclipses, so for now, it stays mostly out of trouble.

Venus is robust in Taurus, throughout the month and opposite to Jupiter – exact opposition on 23 June. This is a real blessing.

Mars Debilitated in Cancer

22 June to 8 August 2019– Mars in Cancer

Mars is debilitated in Cancer is a mixed blessing. It is out of the influence of Rahu Ketu and Saturn but in debilitation. Mars gets debilitated once every two years, so it is time to watch. It will not be too fiery and aggressive. Aries and Scorpio can act contrary to their nature. They need to take care of their health and spend time contemplating how to improve their wellness.

Mars will travel through gandanta on 7 to 9 August – so this is an uncertain time.
