Acts of Violence, Mars, and Saturn

Chakrapani Ullal - Thursday, June 16, 2016

Clients have been asking about the recent shooting in Florida and the potential for continuing violence. My response is that unfortunately, this is another expression of the current Mars/Saturn planetary set-up that I have been referring to in recent blogs. I wish I could say it is over and done but that is not the case. This is a general period of heightened caution for everyone. Retrograde, conjunct Mars/Saturn brings challenges of this type, including acts of violence and revolution, accidents, and the potential for natural disasters.

Politics, Mars, and Saturn

Chakrapani Ullal - Friday, June 03, 2016


As discussed in my previous blogs, these days we are paying close attention to the movement of Mars and Saturn which are creating unavoidable challenges, affecting any and everyone to varying degrees depending on their own planetary set-up.


To better understand the nature of this Saturn and Mars you only need look to the state of American politics today. Saturn, the planet of democratic process, and Mars, the planet of revolution and conflict have created an environment of nearly unprecedented upheaval. The presidential contest has been turned on its ear, replacing an established process with an “anything goes” kind of surreal unreality. This is the power of retrograde, conjunct Mars and Saturn.


Until the fall, Mars and Saturn continue to play a key role as far as creating problematic situations, not just in America but across the globe. With retrograde Mars becoming direct June 30, there will be some slight let-up to the negative influence (for a few weeks at the beginning of July). If you recall, retrogration, (a planet moving backwards) always brings the negative aspect of the planet to the fore – with Mars that can be fairly intense.


Presently, retrograde Mars (since April) is in Scorpio until June 17, thereafter continuing in a backwards movement into Libra until June 30, then becoming direct and remaining in Libra until July 13 – another 6 weeks. July 13 Mars re-joins Saturn in Scorpio, (after a 2 week separation). In tandem, their negative influence intensifies, and they continue conjunct (together) for 2 months until mid-September. September 17 Mars moves into Sagittarius at which point this challenging period is more-or-less over. At that point Saturn will have been direct since August 14. The basic thrust of this planetary period has to do with disorganization, restructuring and reformation. It’s not a comfortable process.


As of mid-September, what remains of the Mars/Saturn situation is Saturn in Scorpio, which is there until November 2017, (a little over a year). Saturn, always the great teacher – can bring difficulties, but it is actually positive for many people depending on their native Saturn.

These are the most important influences you should be aware of in this upcoming period. It remains a generally cautionary time, especially during the last 2 weeks of August.

Upcoming Planetary Influences for the United States

Chakrapani Ullal - Wednesday, July 31, 2013

In the yearly predictions for 2013-2014, I stated “Whenever Saturn and Rahu are in transit and affected by Mars or the Sun, there will be situations which attract challenges. Caution is indicated in September and October, which looks to be the most difficult period for the country this year. Saturn and Mars are in aspect during these months. SunRahu, and Saturn together have the potential for creating turmoil in some area of the country. There can be many kinds of challenges during this time. It is a period of vulnerability, with the possibility for incidents that may affect many people. Therefore, during the month of September in particular, it is a time in which the country is susceptible to influences out of our control.” read more

Nanadana Year


by Chakrapani Ullal

This New Year, March 2012 to April 2012 bears the unmistakable stamp of Mars and Saturn. It is a challenging year, but a year that will deliver us to better conditions, better times ahead. Knowing the outlook is generally good, with a marked improvement by the January, 2013, year-end period, one might brace themselves for some tough going, take precautions where possible, but basically, keep the faith, confident that these difficulties, too, shall pass.
