Setbacks in the summer

Astrologer V. K. Choudhry (1951-2017), who created the Systems' Approach for Interpreting Horoscopes,  emphasised the importance of predictions for the work of astrologers. 

"Astrology is an art of interpreting the reputed esoteric influence of stars/planets on human affairs. It is called divine science and it enables one to peep into the mysterious future."

Indeed, it is only with repeat accurate predictions that we gain confidence in our interpretations of horoscopes. Below is an overview of four accurate predictions for the USA this summer, made on December 28, 2016, based on the Systems' Approach  and the SAMVA chart for the USA.

I. PREDICTION: Setbacks in the Summer
"After June 13, the aspect of Rahu to transit Saturn is expected to become more intense, when two things begin: i) the Rahu sub-period, and ii) a transit station of Rahu at 0° Leo and 2nd house. ... Significant events involving fatalities or death-like experiences are likely..."

I. OUTCOME: Members of US Congress attacked by gunman
On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at 7:09 am EDT, U.S. Congressman Steve Scalise and three other people were shot and wounded by James Hodgkinson, who opened fire with a rifle during a baseball practice of the Republican team for the annual Congressional Baseball Game in Alexandria, Virginia. Scalise, the only member of Congress to be hit, was shot in the hip. Rep. Mo Brooks, who was also at the practice, witnessed the attack and said he saw someone with a rifle behind the third base dugout. Scalise crawled into right field, bleeding. Senator Jeff Flake and Rep. Brad Wenstrup, a former combat surgeon, ran to assist Scalise after Hodgkinson was shot. Sen. Rand Paul, also a witness, said he heard "as many as 50 shots". Scalise, initially conscious, went into shock while being taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center in critical condition, where he underwent immediate surgery. On September 28, Rep. Scalise returned to the House, receiving a hero's welcome, where he gave a speech about his experience related to the traumatic events.

II. PREDICTION: Setbacks for the Summer

In addition to the aforementioned influences suggesting deaths and death-like experiences the following was also mentioned. "Moreover, transit 8th lord Saturn will become stationary at 28° 30‘ Scorpio and 5th house on July 5 until October 10, when the aspect from Rahu is applying. At the time when transit Rahu is aspecting both transit and natal Saturn, transit Saturn and natal Satrurn will also become closely conjunct, well within 1° but not exact. The aspect becomes closest in late August...The economy, working people, mining sector, or easy gains may experience a setback in the summer.

II. OUTCOME: Destructive hurricanes
From mid August to mid September 2017, Hurricane Harvey unleashed flooding, causing 84 confirmed deaths and over $100 billion in property damages in Texas and Hurricane Irma brought over 140 mph winds and lots of rain causing 124 deaths and $65 billion worth of destruction of property, some of which took place in Florida. US insurance companies were hard hit by the damages. The setbacks, even if one-off, were significant in terms of the national economy.  

III. PREDICTION: Setbacks in the Summer
"The malefic influences are thus further increased due to iii) the stationary movement of transit 8th lord Saturn and  iv) the conjunction of transit and natal Saturn. The setbacks associated with these combined aspects could manifest with regard to obstacles, challenges or a crises regarding the legitimacy of US foreign policies, the territorial integrity of the country or its resources. 

III. OUTCOME:  North Korean Missile Crisis reaches boiling point

From early July and into September, North Korea escalated the arms race on the Korean peninsula by launching long range missiles capable of delivering a nuclear war head, while also conducting nuclear testing and setting off a hydrogen bomb. The leader of North Korea threatened to attack Guam and destroy the US mainland. President Trump returned the threats that North Korea would be destroyed if it attacked the US or its allies. The crisis is sufficiently serious to threaten the USA, evoking memories of the deathlike threat of the Cold War."

IV. PREDICTION: Setbacks in the Summer

"Any fast moving transit contacts in the time period can trigger significant events in this regard, such as on August 17, when transit 2nd lord Sun becomes conjunct transit stationary Rahu."

IV. OUTCOME: Media uproar over Trump's comments

President Trump, indicated by the Sun as the leader of the country, got caught up in media storm on August 16-19 for saying that left wing agitators behaved just as badly as right wing protesters protesting the removal of civil war monument on August 13, when one person was killed and dozens injured. Importantly, these events transpired before the Solar Eclipse of August 21, which was therefore not a cause of the uproar, as some tropical astrologers indicate.


It was noted that the transits involving Rahu would be tense from April to October, but peaking in the Summer, when setbacks were likely to occur. The nature of the likely events was also described and the events have unfolded fairly closely to what was predicted. This is further raising the confidence in the Systems' Approach and the SAMVA USA chart.

PS A fifth accurate prediction pertains to the autumn.

V. PREDICTION: Shifting trends in the fall

"On September 13, 2017, transit 6th lord Jupiter will enter Libra and 4th house, where it will remain until October 13, 2018. This transit is likely to bring the energy of conflict to the house of communal harmony." 

V. OUTCOME: Growing controversy over "National Anthem protests"
The National Anthem protests began in 2016 with Colin Kaepernick, a NFL football player, refusing to stand in pre-game ceremonies and honor the flag of "a country that oppresses black people." On September 23, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump, speaking at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem, and encouraged fans to walk out.  In the games immediately following Trump's statements, the protest gained broader participation when over 200 players sat or kneeled during the anthem, others linked arms with their teammates or raised fists, and three teams chose to stay in the locker room for the anthem. Many fans have reacted angrily by burning their NFL paraphernalia and staying away from games.
