AstroAlert: Intense aspects 2nd- 6th June 2016

Watch out friends.. There’s no less that 6 tough aspects coming up between 2-5th June (2 per day)…squares & oppositions. These are going to be stressful..(you may have already started to pick up on these energies over the past 2-3 days, as the aspects are brewing!).  Take note of the issues that are coming up..  look for past patterns, and if you dealt with them or not..and take action this time around.   Because there are 6 of these all happening close to one another, it will be difficult to separate many underlying issues  (as there will be more that one..  seeing 4 Sun signs and 5 ruling planets are involved, severely affecting no less that 8 signs.

The infographics I created below should give you easy to understand details..if you just look at the aspects, dates, signs etc, and also read the notes dotted around the chart!

***Follow the numbers (1), (2), (3)..etc  to see the order/ date of when each aspect is culminating.**

 what aspects / When / what time  :  (all times are GMT) 

  1. Sun-square-Neptune      2nd June  –  02:42 hrs.
  2. Venus-square-neptune   3rd June   –  04:14 hrs.
  3. Sun-opposes- Saturn     3rd June    –   06:37 hrs.
  4. Venus-opposes-Saturn    4th June   –  00:47 hrs.
  5. Sun-square-Jupiter   4th June         –    10:57 hrs.
  6. Venus-square-Jupiter   5th June    –     00:49 hrs.
  7.   Sun-conjuncts-Venus   6th June    –   21:49 hrs.

What Signs are `severely’ affected .

Note ..where ever a planet is (ie a sign that is not your birth sign), it is still going to be in a house-position in your natal chart (like romance sector, love, work, siblings, socials etc).  So these are going to affect all of you… But the following are going to feel it intensely (based on the signs ruled by these planets and the signs these planets are currently transiting)!

  • Saturn in Sagittarius affects Capricorns & Sagittarius
  • Jupiter in Virgo affects  Sagittarians & Virgos
  • Venus in Gemini & Sun in Gemini affects Gemini, Leo, Taurus, Libra
  • Neptune in Pisces affects Pisces

Note on squares & oppositions:

  • Squares can be very stressful. Deal with that energy by making decisions and take action.
  • Oppositions are equally challenging. Deal with it by integrating opposing interests or compromising

Normally you will `feel’ the stress / energies of any aspects or transits a day or few hours Before the actual transit takes places
(ie as the energy is `brewing’).

Soothing relief 6th June 2016.

On 6th June, Venus conjunct the Sun. The energy of this will be a soothing relief after the previous 6 stressful aspects, and will be healing and productive.. if the other energies have been accepted and `worked’ with.

Additional notes (No grand square):
There will be no `grand cross’ even though it looks like it, because of the following..

Saturn 13’Sagittarius
Neptune 12′ Pisces
Jupiter 14′ Virgo

Jupiter already squared Saturn on 26 May, and Saturn will square Neptune on 18th June.

In my forecasts..i’ve given dates/ signs affected by all these.. but NOT actually talked about the implications of each of the aspects…That’s a big thing in itself.. Haven’t had much time.. and perhaps am not meant to give s much info.. and fate should play its hand..and we’ll just have to trust and go with the processes. I only mainly do astroforecasts ..as a way of saying that ..even when there’s tough times ahead..there’s always hope for better things…as can be seen by this phase.. After the 6 stressful aspects, on the 6th of June…Sun and venus conjunct..and that’s going to be all good..

Astro-forecasts for June 2013 (part 2): Beneficial & Challenging aspects

astrology-forecasts-monthly by Mani Navasothy -QuantumPhoenix-net
astrology-forecasts- June 2013 aspects  by Mani Navasothy -QuantumPhoenix-net

Here are the transits of planets in June 2013 (relative angles they make between them), which signs are mainly affected (by the rulership of the planets), and what dates to watch out for! I’ll present this in as simpler form as possible.. ie  beneficial, highly beneficial, difficult, very challenging / difficult etc.

You may also like to read  `Astro-highlights for June’13- part 1:  Effects of sign-shifts by Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune’ – where I have already explored the effects of the planets moving through various sun-signs and how that may affect those signs).

Remember that the energies of transits take a few days (or weeks in some cases) to build up, and that the time when astrological potentials exist for harmonious changes. Often the 1-2 days just before a tough aspect are when stresses and strains also show up in our lives. So do read what’s below, and aim to be either careful a few days (before a tough transit) or plan to male use of the beneficial potentials as you go towards a particular day!

June 2013 forecasts (major positive and difficult transits only)

2nd – Sun sextile Uranus.   Good for Leos & Aquarians.

3rd – Mercury trine Neptune. Highly beneficial for Geminis, Virgos and Pisces.

4th – Mercury trine Saturn; Highly beneficial for Geminis, Virgos and Capricorns; Contracts & future plans high-lighted.

6th– Venus semi-sextile Mars. Good for Librans, Taureans and Aries. (the male and female archetype forces are at play. Highlights relationships).

7th – many transits as below-

Mercury opposition Pluto;

Venus trine Saturn; Good for Librans, Taureans and Capricorns.

Venus trine Neptune; Good for Librans, Taureans and Pisces.

Mars square Neptune- A stressful transit affecting Aries and Pisces – prone to feeling lost or getting caught up in distractions / escapism, bouts of anger and frustration; mars may act as a spark for a volatile situation with Neptune providing the fuel.

Neptune Stationary (going retrograde) – Coupled with the above aspect, this one will affect all, but more so for Pisceans..  (see part 1 of the forecast)

8th – Mercury square Uranus – stressful for Geminis, Virgos and Aquarians – watch out for the mind playing tricks, small things lodged in that keep chipping away or sudden bouts of depression.


Venus opposition pluto –  a challenging time for Libras, Taureans and Scorpions  where forces are pulling at in opposite directions, and resolution can only be reached with balance or compromise;

Saturn trine Neptune- Highly beneficial exists  for Capricorns & Pisces. Some of that cloud of doubts may vanish, replaced by inspired plans and thoughts for long term.

12th – Venus square Uranus – stressful for Librans, Taureans and Aquarians.

17th– Mars sextile Uranus – fairly good for Aries and Aquarians. Expect the unexpected..in a good way”!

19th– Sun conjuncts Jupiter- Very good for Leos, Sagittarians, and nearly everyone – as the Sun (our Star) and the biggest and most beneficial planet Jupiter are joining their energies! Everyone should- no matter what other matters are pressing- look positively about their higher learning and  expanding horizons. As this is happening in Gemini, it’s a case of manage your mind and thoughts – (you think therefore it becomes!)

21st – Mercury conjuncts Venus- another very good day – mainly for Gemini, Virgos, Taureans and Librans.

26th – Sun trine Saturn; Sun trine Neptune; Mercury retrograde starts; – A mixed day of 2 very good transits but overshadowed by the retrograde of Mercury starting.  Leos, Capricorns & Pisceans will stand to benefit the most.. But all can tap into these energies – as the Sun is involved. Long term goals, inspired ideas, laying foundations are well starred.. but as Mercury begins retrograde, the next few weeks may bring lost opportunities (despite initial irritations and aparent problems).  see part 1

28th – Venus semi-sextile Jupiter- Fairly good day for Librans, Taureans and Sagittarians..  But as these are the 2 most beneficial planets, forming a beneficial aspect – everyone stands to gain..!


Note about Cancerians-

These forecasts are written with all the planets except the Moon in mind. Moon rules the sign of Cancer, so by looking at transits of Moon we can work out what sort of (good/ bad) day Cancerians may be having.. However, the moon moves so fast (by our solar system planetary standards) that it forms aspects with other planets almost every day- if not every few hours!  (just tells you why Cancerians probably have such a shifting energy with sentiments & moods!).  Look at part 1 to see how Cancerians are affected by transits.  

Quick note on Planetary rulerships

Sun- Leo; Moon- Cancer; Mercury – Gemini & Virgo; Venus – Taurus & Libra; Mars- Aries ; Jupiter – Sagittarius ; Saturn – Capricorn; Neptune – Pisces; Uranus- Aquarius; Pluto- Scorpio

Quick notes on aspects

Trine & Conjunctions- highly beneficial;  Sextiles & Semi-sextiles – also positive;  Oppositions – create conflicts that require balancing; Square create stress that must be dealt with or it stays and manifests when those transits / aspects happen again;

Astrology: 7 transforming waves of Pluto-Square-Uranus transits between 2012-2015

Pluto-square-Uranus transits (2012 to 2015)
7 waves of transformation for the World!

End of the World in 2012, when some mystical alignment comes to pass? That’s what many people have been thinking, or made to believe. Something about the Maya Calendar ending. !

About 4-5 years ago. while giving a talk on the 10 Incarnations of Vishnu at `Secret Chief’ , I  touched on the `End of the World’  from an astrological point of view . (Secret Chief is a fortnightly pagan social/ talk gathering in Central London, being run by my friend Michael Bingas, High Priest of Wicca).  It was purely accidental, but I got into looking at the western astrological transits for the year 2012, especially December. And I could not find anything that is cataclysmic in terms of transits.

Nearest thing I found was this Uranus-square-Pluto, and that was taking place earlier in 2012, not around December.  I  didn’t and still don’t think the World if going to end!  But seeing that Pluto and Uranus are grating with each other, I figured that sudden changes, disruptions, deep intense experiences, death & rebirth and effectively transformations are on the horizon. Well, that was 4-5 years ago.

This year, thanks to Jonathan Cainer  (Professional Astrologer whom I have been following for over 15 years) brought up the fact that the Uranus-square-Pluto transit was taking place 7 times..between this year (2012) and 2015.

Now that is something different. And requires more thought.  And I haven’t `thought it yet’.  I will post more when I have (just `follow’ my blog by putting your e-mail, to keep up to date).

Jonathan hasn’t said when these transits are, but being an astrologer, I finally sat down with a 50 year ephemeris (2000-2050) I flicked through the data, and located the dates when this Pluto-Square-Uranus transit takes place.

Here is that data – with date, and the degrees where Uranus (in Aries) & Pluto (in Capricorn) occupy for each of these events


24th June   (8’23”)

19th September (6”57″)


20th May (11’13”)

2nd November (9’25”)


21st April (13’33”)

15th December (12’35”)


17h March (15’19”)

and in 2016,  on 25th December’16, these 2 planets come to within 1’42” of one another. By astrological standards, that is quite a large separation for slow moving planets so it won’t `count’ but as far as I feel, that event may produce an echo of similar energies.

These are just the data, and I haven’t given the actual interpretations here yet.   Well, to get a sense of what these influences might man to you, look back at what has been happening ..in May/June of this year, and also July/August/September of this year.

Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio, and its transits and energies involve probing, uncovering secrets, exposure, deep obsessions of sexuality, power-seeking, manipulation, as well as the good stuff – death and rebirth through painful personal shifts, transformations, psychology.  In mythology, Pluto represents the God Hades of the Underworld! Pluto is the furthest planet in the Solar system, but a few years ago, Astronomers `demoted’ it and put it in the `dwarf planetoid’ category.  Astrologers don;t like it, and don’t really care, and will carry on treating Pluto as a planet and a strong influence in charts and people’s lives.

Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, and brings energies such as innovation, technology, free thinking, rebelliousness, humanitarian activities, as well as the more difficult shocks, sudden disruptions.

So aspects involving these two are bound to have a feel of small deep triggers that explode into sudden large-scale events, which in turn change the norm for good. One example is Earth quakes (from a natural point of view), or an Atom bomb – where small deep and sudden events manifest huge changes!  (Now, I must point out, we have not had any high number of earth quakes & storms in the World this year – than in any other year on average. So this i snot how the Uranus-square-pluto is playing out!)

What I find fascinating, despite the painful personal-life events and resulting transformations –that I myself have been going through this year- is the fact that this transit is happening 7 times within a short space of  3 years (These are very slow moving planets, so this sort of transits don’t happen very often..and 3 years is `short time’ for such planets).

So over the next 2 and a half years (between now and March 2015) we and whole World are going to be under this influence. The gaps in between each of the transits of this Uranus-square-pluto is  3month, 8 months, 6 months, 5months, 8 months and 3 months.  And such influences take 1-2 months to build energy and then we’ll be recovering and adjusting for a few months afterwards. So it’s gong to be as if we are more or less living under this influence..  hit by their energies wave after wave.

And that – long term, sustained influence of a series of transformations – is how the World is going to change, and we will not recognise the World of 2016 from where we are now.  Think of the way Rockets take space capsules into orbits or to the moon or to other planets.  Each stage of the Rocket  propels the spacecraft further and faster through a process of sudden explosive increase, until the Craft reaches higher speeds.

Each of these Pluto-square-Uranus transits is like the different stages of propulsion, that – though challenging, intense and even painful – is going to push transformation of humanity.
