THE CELESTIAL DANCE OF
MARS AND SATURN
THE PLANETS OF WAR AND MISFORTUNE
AFFECTING ALL CREATIONS
Doc Searls Weblog:
Right now there's a dance going on in the evening sky, between two planets
on the far side of the Sun: Saturn and Mars. Right now they're about as
close as they ever get — from our perspective, anyway. The graphic above is
a close-up of how they looked yesterday evening, here on the West Coast of
the U.S. They'll be drifting farther apart over the next several days. If
you're also lucky, you can also spot Mercury down near the horizon, below
and to the right of Saturn and Mars, and below and to the left of Castor and
Pollux, the twin stars in Gemini.
As it happens, the conjunction of Mars and Saturn is
happening next to the Beehive cluster in Cancer, an otherwise
non-recognizable constellation. Very pretty in binoculars or telescope. Leo,
which actually looks something like a lion, also appears to be chasing all
three planets toward the Sun.
By the way, the bright "star" overhead for the next couple
months is Jupiter, which is relatively close to us at this point. If your
eyes are especially sharp, you can spot some of Jupiter's' four brightest
moons, which appear to be stars close by the giant planet.
Mars and Saturn In Conjunction:
EVIL OMENS FOR CREATION
Sunday, June 18, 2006:
Two bright planets, Mars and Saturn will have a very close
approach on Saturday evening.
On the occasion, Saturn and Mars squeeze to a mere 0.6 degrees apart from
each other and it will be one of the closer planet to planet groupings of
In reality, the two are millions of kilometres apart. But
viewed from Earth, it will appear as if they are touching. They will be
about half a degree away from each other, that is a little less than the
width of a little finger held against the sky at an arm's length.
This will be the closest that Mars and Saturn have been in
the evening sky since 1978. Pale orange Mars will rise toward yellow Saturn
and then continue upward after they appear to pass each other.
The Red Planet will appear to pass just to the north of Saturn, the brighter
of the two. The planets will appear side by side about one hour after
After Saturday, June 17, 2006, sky gazers can watch the two planets start to
Astronomers say that People in India, even some areas in Asia and Africa
will witness the rare phenomenon provided the sky is clear.
According to Dr. Rathnasree, Director, Nehru Planetarium here, the
conjunction of Mars and Saturn would have not any adverse effect on human
The conjunction will be visible after the sun sets, because the two planets
are to the east of the Sun. The best time for observation lasts for 60
minutes. On the evening of June 17, Mars is to the west of Saturn; on the
evening of June 18, Mars will be to the east of Saturn.
People can start observation 40 minutes after the sunset.
If you look at Saturn with your binoculars, you'll see a lovely cluster of
stars below it. That's the Beehive and it's virtually the only item of
interest in the constellation Cancer the Crab.
However if one believes in Astrology than
it has another story to say as every planetary combination has a personal
effect depending upon the horoscope and overall impact on various nations
depending on the horoscope.
Since Mars and Saturn conjuncts in that of Cancer, therefore it could effect
in the following ways.
- Countries close to the sea will have problems.
- In India places like southern side of the country Tamil
Nadu, Kerala and western side also can have problems.
- Mass death, fluctuation of markets, conflicts and
differences between the UPA partners will be problems.
- As such June 15 to 24, 2006 will be problematic.
- The frequency of mass death will increase. Most will be
less than 5,000 people range.
- Chinese people refer to it as "ghost fire" as in
ancient China, people believed that the spirit of the dead could enter
that star cluster.
|PVAF is posting this news article a few days late for the
actual event of Saturn-Mars conjunction
which happened on June 17/18, 2006....but YOU will still be able to observe some
sort of closeness if you hurry up tonight....PVAF is publishing this event news
as astronomy and astrology is very much an inherent part of learning

a matter of fact astronomy, astrology and all the mathematics connected with
them is in jyotish-shaasTR which is
one of six vEDNgaa (ancillary
part of vED)....And
vED states that all creations in the
universe affects one another...just like Confucious said that a butterfly

(from the vED
library of SHRii
Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry of Edmonton,
In vEDik astrology and astronomy, nine
planets are mentioned which affect all creations in their lives with good
and bad vibrations. The nine planets mentioned are: Moon, Mars, Mercury,
Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Sun, raaHu and kEtu.....
Are these nine planets the same as the
nine planets in the solar system that the current astronomy knows?

A Note on Mars/Saturn Conjunction
From vEDik Astrology
It is not uncommon to see two or more planets
very close together in a chart. It is called an astrological conjunction. A
conjunction brings about a significant interaction of the involved planets’
energies. The effects can be malefic or benefic, depending on the nature of
the planets involved.
Due to current events, I will be discussing the dynamics of a conjunction
with regards to the planets of Mars and Saturn as they will be conjunct in
the next few months of 2002. This conjunction is universal to our whole
planet. All nations, cultures, and individuals will feel the effects of this
conjunction. The magnitude, intensity, and variance of these effects will
differ relative to a nation or individual’s chart.
Mars and Saturn are said to be in conjunction when they are in the same
house, especially when they’re close to one another. They influence each
other. For example, in this case of Mars-Saturn conjunction, Mars is a
planet of energy, aggressiveness, anger, conflicts, dispute, and agitation.
Whereas, Saturn is the planet of suffering, trouble, delays, obstacles and
obstructions. Such influences of the planets are tempered by the sign in
which they are located. These are further tempered by the sign in which they
are situated. For example, Mars in Aries has a different nature that Mars in
Taurus. Similarly, the Saturn is also influenced by the sign in which it
When such a combination exists in a chart, it is generally considered
destructive But there are always elements of positive influence that
manifest. While you are aware of the destructive nature of this planetary
configuration, I can list some of the benefits that it can bring:
This combination enhances the ability to think, and brings logic, diplomacy
and strategy which will help anybody to survive.
The combination increases the person’s
ability to take challenges and does not allow them to feel defeated.
Therefore, it makes the person rise to the occasion and fight it out and not
get a sense of defeat, even when defeated. The Spirit becomes optimistic.
While it gives tremendous experience in
dealing with life, by making the person go through all kinds of difficult
experiences, these very experiences enable the person to rise above the
circumstances and become successful. Things which are difficult to change
can be changed. It is because of this planetary combination that people or
countries can make radical changes which would otherwise take ages. These
changes ultimately bring progress. These planets remove laziness and promote
action and busy-ness. This planetary connection promotes hard work, which is
Mars, when aspecting the Saturn, gives power
to Saturn. The power of Mars is energy and action. It makes people awaken to
the challenges of life and become action oriented.
People who have a restricted boundary of
thinking and who are afraid to go beyond these limitations created by
themselves, when under pressure of the Mars Saturn conjunction, are forced
to break the barriers and go beyond.
Apart from the Saturn Mars conjunction,
similar types of results can also be expected, when Saturn and Mars are in
mutual reception or in opposition. Meaning they are aspecting each other but
in another way. The results of the Saturn Mars conjunction or aspects are
different for different rising signs therefore one has to make adjustment in
understanding their influences. When the Saturn Mars conjunction or aspects
exist in an individual’s natal chart, the impending transit carries the
dominant influence for those individuals; no matter what house or sign they
are in transit. If the conjunction is not present in the natal chart, when
they are just transiting in the sky, they may not make much impact
especially when the Dasha Bhuktis are favorable in the individual chart. But
in the case of countries or nations, the results may be viewed differently.
On April 5th, Mars enters the sign of Taurus. Saturn is
already transiting Taurus. Mars will stay in Taurus until May 19th 2002.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, which is a benevolent planet. It also rules the
second house of the zodiac. Taurus is represented by the bull. So the
planets, when they transit this sign, are influenced by the qualities of the
bull. It is also influenced by the nature of the second house, which is the
house of wealth and happiness. In this case, since two malefics are
transiting Taurus, it affects the wealth and happiness of the people
concerned. Generally this affects most people, but specifically people whose
transits are negative (for example if you are a Taurus rising).
To view the chart of this celestial event, please click
In addition to that, the current transit of Saturn is also suffering from
another major setback which increases its malefic tendencies. It is
suffering from what is known as Rohini Shakata Bheda; Saturn passing through
Taurus at a specific angle. At some point in the future we will be
explaining this phenomenon, as it is an article in itself! This transit of
Saturn in Taurus with its position in Rohini Shakata Bheda is unique and
will only happen in the same sign in about another 30 or 60 years as case
may be. In the past, this conjunction associated itself with war events like
the First and Second World War as well as the Vietnam War.
This unique transit of Saturn is going to be difficult
from many points of view. One can see acts of sabotage, fire, accident,
war-like tendencies, natural disasters, etc. One can see this in the months
of April, May, June and July, in many countries of the world. This will also
tend to affect economic progress. Therefore, this is not a good time for
investment activity. There could be bearish tendencies in many different
industries. It is a time for caution.
It will be interesting to note that in the month of May and June there are
many planets coming together like Mars, Saturn, Mercury, Venus, Rahu, Moon
and Sun. Naturally when this many planets are together with malefics like
Mars, Saturn and Rahu, no doubt you can anticipate some fireworks.
Added to this is a major solar eclipse on June 10th which intensifies the
malefic nature of this combination. The results arising out of this eclipse
could be anticipated anytime between June to December 2002. Generally the
eclipses are bad. Indications are for politics, politicians, and countries,
when the eclipse is taking place in unfavorable houses for those countries
and those politicians. It will also affect individuals especially those
whose Sun, Moon, rising sign, etc, are either in Taurus or Scorpio. This
eclipse is also considered bad for the environment because during the
eclipse, there is an increase carbon dioxide and a decrease in oxygen (the
life-giving force) thereby weakening the immune system of those people who
are already affected by weak immune systems.
So therefore it would be appropriate for people to be careful about their
health, not to be in a hurry, avoid accidents, cautious about risky
investments, and travel only when it is necessary. Most of all, watch your
Ultimately, all these planetary conjunctions are a challenge to our strength
and therefore that is the beginning of gaining a handle on our lives to rise
above and face better times ahead. Unless we are challenged by the
circumstances of life and thereby gain experience, we cannot learn to live
with confidence and ease.
The Ecliptic Plane
Credit: The Clementine Project
Explanation: The Plane of the Ecliptic is
well illustrated in this picture from the 1994 lunar prospecting Clementine
spacecraft. Clementine's star tracker camera image reveals (from right to
left) the Moon lit by Earthshine, the Sun's corona rising over the Moon's
dark limb, and the planets Saturn, Mars, and Mercury. The ecliptic plane is
defined as the imaginary plane containing the Earth's orbit around the Sun.
In the course of a year, the Sun's apparent path through the sky lies in
this plane. The Solar System's planetary bodies all tend to lie near this
plane, since they were formed from the Sun's spinning, flattened,
proto-planetary disk. The snapshot above nicely captures a momentary line-up
looking out along this fundamental plane of our Solar System.
conjunction June 17/18, 2006
Mars and Saturn (in Leo) now engage in a t-square with Chiron retrograde
opposing (from Aquarius) and Jupiter retrograde (in Scorpio) sits the apex
Mars will form an exact conjunction with Saturn around
midnight June 17, 2006 at 8:46 Leo. Jupiter in Scorpio retrograde (currently
at 10 degrees) will square Saturn all month, Chiron is currently retrograde
at 9:26 Aquarius. Jupiter retro and Saturn come to an exact conjunction June
23, on June 18, Mars forms an exact opposition to Chiron retro and an exact
sq to Jupiter retro Saturn opposes Chiron retro on June 20.
It’s not surprising if you are already feeling the pressure of this intense
configuration – especially so as today’s moon in Scorpio activates the
tsquare. Those with planets around these mid degrees (about 5 to 12 degrees
of the fixed signs) are certain to feel overly saturated or confronted by
Mars and Saturn bring ending and/or culmination points; they are a
frustration duo and also traditionally deal with war and death. If you have
been working hard toward a goal, you could see successful attainment, if you
have been hanging on for dear life despite an obvious expiry date, then you
may wasting at least one your most precious resources (TIME, that is.)
Jupiter in Scorpio intensifies the overall experience and offers great
potential for major change and transformation. Jupiter in retrograde is
suggestive of deeper forces from within that are “pulling the strings”.
Jupiter and Chiron as part of the current configuration both single out this
moment as an extra-ordinary threshold, - with both in retrograde, their
influences can be likened to the underground rumblings of a volcano about
ready to erupt.
As a special messenger, Chiron’s influence points to what is keeping you
awake – it represents an “excitement” point (a stimulant) and also pulls the
attention/energy toward a specific (important/special) goal. Chiron in
Aquarius retrograde “liberates” from the “inside out” – the experience can
be one of shattering or of attainment (and often some of both.) (the
retrograde experience can create inner divides or inner illuminations
–perhaps it’s a chaotic inner experience, perhaps inner rebellion, perhaps
it’s a time of inner “light-bulbs” flashing away.) Much that is experienced
through Chiron’s intensification point also mirrors/re-energizes the crises
and (potential) healing points of key past lifetime experiences. Yep, it’s
all familiar terrain and it’s all been done before. When it comes to
repeating of the past or to moving it forward - Jupiter in Scorpio
retrograde sits at the point of the “coin toss position”.
Jupiter in Scorpio retro provides a more direct access to deeper soul urges.
Jupiter in Scorpio retrograde relative to Chiron in Aquarius in retrograde
will shine a light into that which was previously hidden from view..../clue
you in to hidden agendas - those of your own soul urges or you'll see it
played out externally. This is a time of great revelations - those "ah, ha"
moments that can suddenly arrive but that have probably been in the works
for quite some time. (is it rude awakening time or do you feel that are the
hands of the clock in just the right position?)
Pay close attention and hone your observational skills. The play-out of
circumstances will show you whether your soul currently wants more
knowledge/experience that plummets you into the depths of the taboo
experience (ie: knowing what isn’t in your best interests but going after it
anyway), or whether your inner orientation is directed toward a more freeing
and transformative experience (without requiring the walk through hell
first.) Both directions will produce the intentions of the moment – that of
some very significant surpassing and a radical shifting of gears.
Of course, the collective experience is greatly intensified now too. While
it’s difficult to “direct the spin”/be truly effective as an individual when
these larger forces are operative, it’s all a matter of how we respond to
the larger experience – and in order to respond to the greater good of all,
we first have to recognize the interconnectedness of everything that we now
experience. We each contribute to the collective undercurrents through our
thought patterns, fears, hopes, apathy, ambitions and through our every
moment exchanges with each other.
Don't forget to breathe!
Namaste to all,

Mars, astrologers squirm
TIMES OF INDIA: Neha: Sunday, June
NEW DELHI: Saturn will hug Mars on Sunday night in a
celestial embrace astronomers term conjunction. While skywatchers prepare
for a visual feast, astrologers are calling it a disastrous encounter.
Soothsayers have warned that the conjunction is bound to upset the usual
order of things. For instance, Brazil, scheduled to play against Australia
in a FIFA World Cup tie at 9.30 pm, could be in for a surprise.
In fact, astrologer Bejan Daruwalla predicts the FIFA World Cup will have an
"unusual" winner and the Rakhi Sawant case will further flare up. All
because of the planetary hug.
Saturn and Mars will come closest on Sunday night and appear to touch each
"In reality, the two are millions of kilometres apart. But viewed from
Earth, it will appear as if they are touching. They will be about half a
degree away from each other, that is a little less than the width of a
little finger held against the sky at an arm's length," says C B Devgan, of

Venus Square Neptune, Sun
Opposition Pluto, Mars Conjunct Saturn Square Jupiter, and Uranus Stationary
Aquarius Papers-Global Astrology: June
15, 2006: by Robert Wilkinson
We've entered the storm zone, so heads up and stay aware of
this sequence of heavy duty aspects over the next week. The Venus square
Neptune crested this morning, showing us the winds of destiny and forms of
future blessings. It will take courage to "part the curtains leading to a
sacred pathway," and enter into the unknown. Find a way of connecting to the
source of life and light, strengthen your self-discipline, deepen your
insight, and hold on to your great realizations while cultivating
self-confidence through forms of purification, however that applies to your
I've already spoken extensively about the Mars conjunct Saturn with both
square Jupiter in this article. The Jupiter square Saturn will last quite a
few months, so don't forget that will bring ongoing lessons of mindfulness,
imagination, and generation of goodwill without rigidity or extravagance
Uranus on its station always brings major shifts and changes in the world at
large, and with the other dynamic aspects, I'm sure we're in for a shift in
tides very soon across a broad spectrum of worldly affairs. Expect that to
happen in your lives wherever mid-Pisces falls in your charts, as well as
the house areas of Capricorn and Aquarius, as Uranus is the spiritual ruler
of those signs.
The only thing I'll add is that the lessons accompanying the last Full Moon
show that we need to know the truth, tell the truth, and not allow that
which is inferior or undermining to seize power by accepting it so easily.
Resist the negative right up front, and if appropriate, find the right
helper or superior to move your affairs forward.
Definitely know what is commanding you, or what you need to send out a
command about, even as you are led toward less hassle. If you're moving into
conflict, get clear, be willing to compromise as far as you can without
jeopardizing your integrity or the integrity of the situation, and find
someone who can end the hassle amicably.
If you're at the beginning of an enterprise, consider the trends each
believes to be their own, and make sure they harmonize. If they don't,
you're seeing the seeds of future conflict. Carefully consider all factors
and beliefs and duties and responsibilities, and make sure each holds up
their end of the bargain. We're moving into a very pressured time, so stay
clear and consider a lot of it rehearsal for things to come.
From top to bottom: Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter
