Mar 2021: Explosive Release

During the past few months, energy was stuck due to kAlasarpa formation (all planets except for moon are on one side of Rahu-Ketu axis), and also due to several planets located in the heavy earth sign of Capricorn. This month there is strong Aquarius energy Mar 11-15 due to the conjunction of Mercury, Sun and Venus as well as new moon on Mar 13. Mars is conjunct Rahu in Taurus, agitating people’s anger and insecurities. Mars will break the kAlasarpa formation on Mar 27, after crossing over Rahu on Mar 26. Jupiter is zooming out of Capricorn on Apr 5. We can expect big changes happening in April, especially related to global financial system.

Feb 2021: Unexpected Twists and Turns

Uranus is going to play a big role this year. It is the awakener, the master of chaos, change and innovation. There was exact Uranus-Mars conjunction at the time of US presidential inauguration on Jan 20 at noon in Washington DC, and this conjunction happened in the Aries ascendant with Moon in Aries. This arrangement indicates extremely volatile situation inside US and expansion of freedom movements. There will be an exact Uranus-Saturn square on Feb 17, indicating intense clash between the old and the new. Due to Saturn’s retrograde motion, there will be two more exact squares later this year (June and Dec). Venus enters Capricorn on Jan 27. Mercury in Aquarius is turning retrograde on Jan 30 and moving back to Capricorn on Feb 4. It turns direct on Feb 20.

The new moon on Feb 11 in Capricorn is going to a big trigger, involving seven planets – Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, MercuryR, Sun and the Moon. The new moon is happening in dhanishTa nakshatra, the star of symphony. Does it mean the world is going to come together in harmony? If it does, it would be an unexpected miracle. We have to wait and see. Another indication of prosperity this year is the transit of Rahu in rOhiNi nakshatra, Feb 13 – Sep 18 (based on true node calculation). Mars will be energizing Rahu in Taurus Feb 22 – Apr 13.

Jan 2021: Explosive Start to a Decade of Changes

Pluto re-entered Capricorn on Dec 31, and will be there for more than a decade, breaking all foundational structures. We had a preview of this when Pluto was briefly in Capricorn Feb 25 – June 29, 2020 before it returned to Sagittarius to complete it’s final six month phase there. Interestingly Jupiter followed Pluto into Capricorn during those exact four months. What a cosmic synchronicity! Note that Saturn has been in Capricorn since Jan 24, 2020, and will be there until Jan 17, 2023. Jupiter re-entered Capricorn on Nov 20, 2020 and will be there until Apr 4, 2020. There will be lots of worldwide changes during the first three months of 2021. Riots, civil wars and wars between countries are very possible. The arrangement of planets at the time of US presidential inauguration (Jan 20, noon, DC) is very interesting, with exact conjunction of Mars and Uranus in Aries, indicating an explosive surprise. The ascendant also happens to be Aries with Moon in Aries. Capricorn becomes the 10th house of government, with a conjunction of five planets – Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Pluto. Expect the unexpected!
