|The Jyotish Star – June 2017|
by Vachaspati Christina Collins
Congratulations to our Jyotish Star of June, internationally known Vedic astrologer Juliana Swanson who receives the title Jyotish Vachaspati from the Jyotish Star, Celestial Resource and AVS (Academy for Vedic Studies, CEO Vachaspati Christina Collins). Jyotish Vachaspati means that your predictions come true. Vac means speech, “aspati” is a form of Brihaspati (Jupiter, the planet of truth). The feedback from her clients affirm this truth.
Jyotish Vachaspati is an honorary title based on merit and is often recommended and given by astrologers who also hold this title or higher. It is rarely achieved. Seldom in the west. We asked Juliana questions about her work as a Vedic astrologer, her systems, methods and techniques, and feel sure that her guidance and recommendations in her interview will be of value to everyone. Juliana is the eleventh Vedic astrologer from the west to be awarded the title Jyotish Vachaspati.
Big changes with the planets this month as well. Jupiter will go direct in motion. Saturn will retrograde back into Scorpio on the summer solstice. Hang in there those with Scorpio planets or rising in late degrees. This will have a big impact on the chart of the USA President, Donald Trump. He has Taurus Sun, Scorpio Moon, exalted Rahu and exalted Ketu at the 27 to 29-degree mark of Taurus and Scorpio. This could cause changes in career (Taurus is his 10th house of occupation, and Scorpio his 4th house of fixed assets “home”) or residence. His health could be affected as well, or worse. Because a planet “casts a shadow” as it begins to cross the line to the next sign, this transit has been affecting his chart for several months already, and it will get increasingly challenging as it makes exact point contact with 4 of his planets.
They say that the consciousness of the people is reflected in who is elected. Even if our personal choice did not win an election, sending light and prayers his way, now, especially if you are a meditator cultivating consciousness would be highly recommended.
Saturn will be affecting different houses once it returns to Scorpio, and the mutual aspect of Jupiter and Saturn now activates different houses for each of us. So, I wrote a small piece on this topic with a key to the houses Saturn will aspect from each position, Sagittarius and Scorpio, and the dates and charts of when the transits occur, along with the meaning of the houses.
