Vedic Astrology Forecast June 2019:
Monday, June 3:
The June New Moon takes place this morning at 6:01AM EDT in sidereal Taurus in Rohini Nakshatra. The planetary influences at the time of the New Moon give an indication of themes that are likely to characterize the month ahead. Both the sign of Taurus and the lunar mansion of Rohini Nakshatra have earthy and fixed traits and have connotations of practical stability and a tendency towards attachment to external comfort.
In this month’s New Moon chart one striking placement is that of Saturn who rules the 9th and 10th houses. The 9th house is a house of dharma or one’s personal life-guiding beliefs, ethics, spiritual path and higher learning. The 10th house is a primary house of action, work, professional direction and public life. Saturn itself tenants the transformative yet destabilizing 8th house of this chart and is within very close degree to Ketu, the sharp south lunar node. These factors can readily bring some form of external re-structuring or powerful internal soul-searching regarding larger life direction and work. Within this there may be an element of the unexpected, where Ketu’s influence often brings an element of suddenness.
In this chart Jupiter is in the 7th house of partnership, and governs the 11th house of expansion and gains, and the 8th house that rules the potential resources of another, where some form of a partnership may serve as a prospect of opportunity, creative power or material support. Since here Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio, there may also be an element of Scorpio’s subterranean traits such as unclear boundaries, psychological complexity or hidden information.
In summary, this month’s New Moon chart suggests themes of a changing landscape in the workplace. There may be a need to deeply assess or keep sight of the ideals and values that one holds most dear in life. An alliance with another may factor in as a potential source of support of which perhaps to see with discernment. And there may also be the weighing of whether to give a priority to seeking security or to doing what is most right within a bigger picture.
Wednesday, June 5:
Today the Moon as well as Mercury and Mars all transit the lunar mansion of Ardra Nakshatra in mid sidereal Gemini. Symbolized as a tear-drop, this star has connotations of turbulent catharsis and the resulting tender new growth and freshness that are eventually born out of it. This is day to navigate with patience and care.
Alongside of today’s more brief edgy lunar alignment, throughout the month of June Saturn, the slowest-moving planet of carefulness and delay is in very close conjunction with sharp and sudden Ketu, where this conjunction brings an undercurrent of heightened intensity to the atmosphere. Here an attitude of flexible adaptability to the unexpected may be especially helpful and timely. (This Saturn-Ketu conjunction will be exact next month, on July 4th, and these two planets will remain within a few degrees apart through the mid-Fall).
Friday, June 14:
Today the Moon is passing through the very early degrees of Scorpio where is most weakened or deeply ‘debilitated’ and gives unsteady effects. This may make for an emotionally sensitive day or an agitated atmosphere that is well-suited to uncomplicated plans and the breathing space to go at one’s own natural pace. The Moon’s deepest debilitation will take place in the evening at 11:53PM EDT.
Also today, Saturn and Mars sit exactly 180 degrees apart, where their opposite natures make for a gritty stop and start driving-with-the breaks-on planetary alignment.
Saturday, June 15:
Today the Sun enters sidereal Gemini: important new beginnings are traditionally avoided on days of solar ingress.
Monday, June 17:
The Full Moon in June takes place at 4:30AM EDT in Sagittarius in Moola Nakshatra. Symbolized as a bound bunch of roots, Moola Nakshatra is a sharp-natured lunar mansion that is perceptive yet intense due to its very primal nature. The full Moon may bring events that reveal root causes and basic intentions.
Thursday, June 27:
Today the Moon is largely free of planetary affliction, and a favorable combination that encourages accomplishment is formed by the Moon’s transit through the lunar mansion of Ashwini Nakshata on the 10th waning lunar day. Symbolized as a horse, this revitalizing nakshatra especially favors activities that restore health and vitality. Its swift nature also naturally supports activities characterized by movement, such as travel and transporting things.
Jupiter Enters Scorpio in October 2018:
This month Jupiter the Great Benefic planet changes signs on Thursday, October 11, 2018 to enter sidereal Scorpio until November 4, 2019. As the planet of abundance, wisdom, and overall blessings, the house that coincides with the sign of Scorpio in one's individual birth chart receives a gracious planetary boost for the next one year. To offer a general overview as to how Jupiter's transit may play out for each rising sign (ascendant), please read on. If you don’t know your Vedic ascendant (a primary consideration), then you can instead read from your Vedic Sun sign, since this functions as an alternate ascendant that is especially revealing of one’s public life, profession as well as physical health. In Vedic astrology, the Ascendant, Sun and Moon signs all provide interrelating layers of important information. Remember that Vedic astrology uses the sidereal Zodiac that is based on the backdrop of the fixed stars, instead of the western Tropical zodiac that is based on the seasons.
The dates of the Vedic Sun sign are here as follows (approximately, give or take a day or so depending on your exact birth year):
April 13- May 13 (Aries)
May 14 – June 13 (Taurus)
June 14 – July 15 (Gemini)
July 16 – August 15 (Cancer)
August 16 – September 15 (Leo)
September 16-October 15 (Virgo)
October 16 –November 14 (Libra)
November 15 – December 14 (Scorpio)
December 15 – January 12 (Sagittarius)
January 13 – February 11 (Capricorn)
February 12 – March 13 (Aquarius)
March 14 – April 12 (Pisces)
ARIES: Jupiter's transit through the deeply transformative yet intense 8th house may bring gains that come from unusual or secret sources like inheritance or receiving gifts with complex strings attached. There may be radical acts of free-thinking independence, and secretive or possibly controversial interests (like in shamanism, the occult or psychic development). As the house of the sub-conscious mind, this 8th house transit may also give an attraction to psychotherapy or unearthing the very roots of what makes one tick.
TAURUS: Jupiter's transit through the 7th house of romantic relationship and marriage encourages a love-interest commitment or may bring clearer discernment and more sensitivity in relationship, and this transit may improve the life situation of one's spouse in various ways. This is also a house of general one-to-one partnership, where this transit encourages business partnership and colleagues. For those who work intimately with others in fields such as counseling or other one-to-one therapeutic work, this transit encourages healing potential for clients and patients, as well as encourages natural suitability with them.
GEMINI: Jupiter's transit takes place through the 6th house of service work, daily habits, tests of endurance and efforts to improve one’s station in life. This influence may bring uniquely fitting opportunities to be of caring service to others and new capacity to face life’s challenges with patience, enthusiasm and compassion for all. Those in healing, health care or social work professions may especially benefit professionally from this transit. There may be the welcome reversal of a nagging life situation or chronic health condition that is born out of new steadfast resolve to overcome unproductive tendencies, as this transit encourages fresh and welcome understanding of the smaller daily routines or attitudes that have shaped a bigger life situation.
CANCER: Jupiter's transit through the expansive 5th house of creativity, intellect and devotion may motivate one to be a student for the love of it. As a primary house of poorva punya or 'past-life merit', this transit encourages the expression of unique and uncanny creative gifts that may have been cultivated over lifetimes. This is also the house of children, where Jupiter's transit may support fertility, benefit one's young ones or enhance one's relationship with them. It is also a house of financial speculation, which may give an opportunity or desire to invest money in stocks or other forms of taking a gamble.
LEO: Jupiter’s transit through the 4th house of one's environment, land, home (and other fixed assets) as well as vehicle related matters may bring changes in this area in the form of a possible move, gain, or significant home improvements. Among one's other family members, this transit is over the house of one’s mother, where either this person’s life situation or the relationship with her may undergo a transformation.
VIRGO: Jupiter through the 3rd house of short travels, uprooting and enterprising energy may take one to new locations on trips, and give one the opportunity and personal drive to learn a new set of practical skills, especially those that involve manual technique, such as playing musical instruments or painting. Also, this may be a good transit for those who are writers, and also for those in technology professions this transit may be professionally fortunate. Among various family members, this transit may also generally benefit one's siblings (especially those younger).
LIBRA: Jupiter rules the 2nd house, whose various meanings include speech, food and money. This transit encourages more eloquent and conscious communication, fitting improvements to one's diet, nicer personal belongings, and the inspired building of prosperity. The 2nd house also governs ancient wisdom that was originally passed down verbally, where one may become committed to studying a subject that has a strong sense of lineage and tradition. With the house of speech empowered, there may be a natural tendency to speak up freely with greater clarity and discernment.
SCORPIO: Jupiter's transit over the 1st house of the physical self imparts stronger personal autonomy and direction, and this transit may increase overall vitality, help stabilize a health condition, support enthusiasm, confidence, and impart a deeper maturity and a clearer sense of individuality. The 1st house represents the chart’s owner and is a microcosm of the whole chart, so this transit may be beneficial in numerous ways.
For those with the Moon in Scorpio: while this transiting effect might seem quite counter-intuitive, the transit of Jupiter over the house of the natal Moon itself is one of the fewer instances where this is actually regarded as one of the less-favorable transiting placements of Jupiter.
SAGITTARIUS: Jupiter's transit takes place over the 12th house that governs places of retreat or seclusion, foreign travel, the ego’s death, and expenditures of all kinds. This may bring necessary and desirable endings, bring financial spending under control through simplification, and may give a needed and deeply meaningful stepping away from the main-stream world. Those who work in fields that involve hospitals, monasteries, spas, or regular foreign travel may especially benefit professionally from this transit. Since Jupiter governs the 4th house of residence for this ascendant, this transit gives a higher probability of a move or travel.
CAPRICORN: Jupiter's transit over the abundant 11th house of gains and wealth, and friends and community brings more potential to feel more socially connected, to be drawn to big group projects, and to fulfill one's strongest worldly desires. For those in non-profit fields who receive professional endowments and financial grants this transit may be especially helpful. This is the house of one's older sibling, where this family member also receives overall benefit from this transit, which may improve the relationship with them of this person’s life situation.
AQUARIUS: Jupiter's transit through the 10th house of profession and public life is likely to breathe new life and opportunity as well as creativity into one's work life, bring more luck to interactions with the general public, more protection to one’s reputation, and may bring new avenues for professional networking and promotion. This is a year to step into greater personal authority. Also, since Jupiter governs the financial 2nd house for this ascendant, there may be a pay-raise at work, or the start of receiving incoming for a work project.
PISCES: Jupiter's transit through the 9th house of wisdom, ethics, higher education, pilgrimage, teachers, and general Grace encourages noble undertakings motivated by a sense of dharma (or one's most innately suitable path of right action). This transit facilitates greater proximity to spiritual teachers or clarity around spiritual practice. Also, for those working in fields of higher education, this transit may be especially professionally favorable. Among one's family members, the 9th house governs one's father, where he may generally benefit this year, or this relationship becomes more significant.
