As we change the calendar Jupiter is midpoint of Scorpio and Saturn is midpoint of Sagittarius. Rahu and Ketu are preparing to change signs. Ketu will enter Sagittarius with Saturn, and Rahu will go into Gemini.
Jupiter is Scorpio will bring an increase of wealth from drilling and diving. There might be some new knowledge from the depths. This placement favours academic research. Astrological and occult knowledge is likely to be abundant, but it’s not a favourable place for religious dogma which may get revealed. And it favours such revelation and redemption of mankind.
Jupiter in scorpio favours the water element with abundance, though it may also set off emergency situations due to congestion caused by that abundance.
Saturn is in Sagittarius with Ketu and they will be conjunct around May 20. The last time this happened was about 150 years ago when Bismarck Marched on Paris and unified the German Empire. The British colonies (and ex-colonies) all put forward various versions of the Indian Act in order to legalize the theft of their land and make the people slaves of the state. This is what empires do. A massive uprising by muslims in China sent waves of refugees to Russia. Many Chinese were immigrating to North America in what was described as caravans. Racial violence was no less than today. Interestingly enough this was around the same time that American naval ships visited isolationist Korea (who were of course one in those days). Some significant earthquakes and volcanos also erupted around February 1871.
Saturn and Ketu in Sagittarius can give atheism or shamanism depending on who is stronger. Empires apply the cold hard law to ones belief. We are still suffering by Prussian education systems designed to give belief in cold hard reality rather than allowing our mind to truly expand in a humanistic way. Ketu scatters that belief so that one suffers not only from cold, hard and punitive dogma of the empire, but also by the indifference, scattered, incoherent ideology that get repeated.
1871 was a difficult year for priests and people of wisdom as they would have felt the fear of Saturn and complete instability of Ketu. With the institution of the church broken they would have been dispersed, their earning where severely restricted, and there would have been some isolation.
We can expect similar results in 2019. Higher knowledge will be restricted, network connections will be limited, public assembly will be regulated. There may be a greater number of chronic complaint.
Rahu in Gemini brings an imposter into the messages and announcements. Gemini signifies arms and lungs. So there will be increased air pollution. And this position increases the likelihood that there will be use of unconventional arms or weapons.
This position of Rahu and Ketu go against dharma. It’s typically a material placement. Good for gain and getting. What you want, rahu’s mentality is essentially selfish, like a starving man who can not control himself. Typically a low caste or outcaste mentality. Greed, sexual desire, and unfair competition amongst brothers and teammates.
