Saturn Retro 2016-22: Epilogue


Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles)Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles) and Saturn Retro 2015 (15 articles)

Epilogue, Saturn Retro 2016

8th August, Monday: Here, now, today, we're at the fag end of the 4.5 month long, annual Saturn Retrograde 2016. We're in the blue, dotted, concluding, phase, the Release phase of Saturn Retro ( check graph above). And in contrast to the earlier 21 posts, today's post, Epilogue, shall attempt to surmise, summarize, kind of retrospectively wrap up this turbulent 4.5 month long phase of Saturn Retrograde in Scorpio. And, that is going to be quite difficult because all other posts, were about certain aspects/ features/ of Saturn retrograde. But this post, carries the burden of the comprehensive summary. Like historical retrospectives,each magazine publishes towards the year end.. "The Year that Was.." kind of deal. Let me summarize the other parallel major planetary events that were occurring parallel to Saturn Retrograde.

Guru Chandala Yog (Jupiter + Rahu) in Leo: 31st Jan to 11th Aug
Shani Mangal Yog ( Saturn + Mars) in Scorpio: 20th Feb to 17th Jun AND 12th July to 18th Sep
Brief temporary exit of Mars to Libra: 17th June to 12 July

RAJASIC RUPTURE
The combined impact of on this years Saturn retrograde is that, during the above periods, the two heaviest planets, the karmic foundation planets of the heavens, the axis upon which fate and fortune revolved upon, namely..Saturn and Jupiter were BOTH completely askew, erratic, bizarre, because of the prevailing Shani mangal Yog, i.e, Saturn+ Mars combination, and Guru Chandal Yog, i.e,  Jupiter + Rahu combination.
Additionally, because of the Saturn Retrograde happening in Scorpio, a sign ruled by Pitta ruled Mars, the impact is that, very sharp, Rajasic, Martian, karmic energies would prevail during this period. A kind of cathartic volcano, karmic, surgery, or sharp, invasive military rupture of Pitta ruled, Rajasic, energies.  Many events would happen, that would cross defined boundaries, transgress inertial edges of things.

TWIN PEAKS
But, highly interesting is the twofold, energy changes that follows. Retrograde Mars enters Libra, from 17th June to 12th July.. almost parallel to the one month of  falling Retro: 6th June to 10th july.  Creating a the temporary suspension of  RAJASIC rupture of prevailing Shani Mangal yog in Scorpio, dramatically chilled and cooled further by Falling Retro, the month long cool Saturnine phase of Saturn Retro (check graph)!!
And then, from 12th July onwards...  as Mars re-entered Scorpio, coinciding with the Sharp, Rajasic, Pitta phase, Ultra Retro, from 10th July to 31st July, the Double whammy of Shani Mangal yog and Ultra Retro began.. full force! A massive Rupture of Rajasic energies after a month long suspension, chilled out cool energies. Like an army moving into invasion mode after a gap, rest, interval of a month. Almost like a historical epoch getting created!! AS IF THE HEAVENS HAD PERSONALLY DESIGNED THIS PERIOD of TWIN PEAKS from 17TH JUNE TO 10TH JULY.  and 12th JULY to 31st JULY!!

The combined energy of this prevailing RAJASIC ruptue, would partially diminish in THREE FOLD steps.. from 31st July, end of Ultra Retro phase, then  11th Aug, Jupiter transits into Virgo, ending the six month long Guru Chandal yog, and then finally from Sep 18th, end of prevailing six month long Shani Mangal yog in Scorpio!
And, this is the BROADER impact/ WIDER picture of the current prevailing Saturn Retrograde 2016 cum Shani+ Mangal yog in Scorpio, + Guru Chandal in Leo!

Personal Observations: I realise one thing, that, only when I get into the nitty gritties, actual dates, MICRO aspects of the concurrent and connected prevailing transits, does the overall bigger picture emerge.. automatically.. on it's own! When I began this post "Epilogue", summary, I had NO idea, what I was going to write about! BUT, when I took the considerations of prevailing, concurrent planetary transits connected to this year's Saturn retro 2016, the bigger, massively powerful picture.. emerged on it's own, with 1000 symptoms, and signs adhering to the physical experience, empirical evidence of this turbulent, stormy, vortex phase of energies!!!
Suddenly, after having compiled the above post, I kind of feel a massive relief, like a major pending load has been lifted from my shoulders, that, i have done something, that I was supposed to have. feeling drowsy suddenly, will update further.. later

...to be updated later...

abcdefgh..

Saturn Retro 2016-21: Ultra Retro- part 2

Dear friends, this post is a continuation from the previous post : Saturn-retro-2016-20: Ultra Retro Phase, so please read that before plunging into this...


 Reversal of Paris Trip:Ultra retro 2009

Update, 30th July, Saturday, 2016:
Graveyard visit: On  Saturday, 2nd May, 2009, the 20th day of Ultra Retro '09, I had our Hotel California, at Champs-Élysées , early morning, boarded a Metro and reached the graveyard to visit the fabled gravestone of Jim Morrison. However, on enquiring I found that I had arrived at the wrong graveyard!! Yet, one housing many intellectuals and path breakers of Paris. I spent my time roaming among the gravestones, in a quiet silence, stillness of the Saturday morning.  It was my last day, last few hours in Paris, before the inevitable return on that very evening. And, somehow I tried to cling on the solitude, suspended animation, the frozen stillness,of those ancient gravestones.
Above, a singular Jet aircraft moved almost silently across the clear blue skies. And my soul, oozing with nostalgia, tried to cling on, to the aura, to the ancient stillness of the elaborate Gravestones, ornate funeral ornaments in tribute to the stellar souls, who had trail blazed their way across human history! It was a suspened moment of stillness, anti-gravitas, an ancient repose, moment of sheer nostalgia, that I desperately tried to cling on to the..  infinitely sublime... before the spell gave away, and the inevitable tide began to ..turn...
Inversely: Today, Saturday, 30th July, 2016, the 20th day of Ultra Retro '16, was all bustling with the vast ooze of mundane preoccupations, mobile repair, sore throat, illness, rainy, soggy weather, feeding my stray dogs .. cooked and raw meat. Their wet fur smelling like the stench of ancient carpets soaked with damp water for ages. I had played with the snout of one of the dogs, and later forgot, whether I had washed my hands before spreading butter on my toast. Ghoulish!!!
 The infintely sublime of the Parisian graveyard morning has perfectly inverted itself into the mundane, the profane, the hideously coarse. Throat feeling sore, head dizzy, body semi feverish, some deadly disease is definitely upon me..!!
Yesternight, without my mobile phone functional, I had sunk into my unread store of comics, alternative tales from Dark Horse comics, DC Vertigo series..  some grotesque tales form the Wasteland, unnerving Disreal of Enigma part 7, and the usual brain fry of Doom Patrol, as if a natural sequel to having watched the disturbingly Dis-real energies of tne unnerving Mulholland Drive at cousin Bubkas place earlier that day (check previous post).

On that 2nd May of 2009, I had tasted the taste of the infinitely sublime, and today I feel like some grotesque diseased germ, malevolence lodged and burning in my throat. Inversion of the 20th day of Ultra Retro, seven years down the line..
On that Parisian day, I had tasted the flavour of the Unreal, and herein today, struggling with the ghoulishly acute taste of the Disreal, stuck in my throat area. Every word that I type out further, seems so weighed down, by the viscous mass of some visceral, molasses like tensile paste. Some deeply lodged, visceral fragment, or corrosive fluid within me is getting churned..
Throat area/ Throat Chakra feels battered/ pulverized/ ravaged...
This kind of visceral, body-centric, cellular writing is perfect for such acute prevailing energies of Ultra Retro. A Centripetal becoming,  crawling.. we enter into the visceral mass, the organic interiors of our slimy, cellular, viscous... innards!!
No money, no marks, no feathery caps for such kind of writing. Because neither it's astrological, nor post modern, nor novel material, but just mere sudden random outbursts ...getting entangled in the net mesh of this blogging process/ procedure...

Update, 30th July, Saturday, 1:06 pm: I think this post will get updated, micron by micron as the day slowly crawls forward. On it's own impetus. Writing for the sake of writing. To balance the fervour and automatic energy of the last day in Paris, 2nd May, '09. My dismal, low energy crashdown is a mere energy reversal of that buzz, inertial rush, the residual hormonal carryover, on that last day. Every moment of that Unreal day is being matched by it's equivalent points, nodes, graphs of the Disreal. I feel feverish, down, low, but yet some energy getting released. In some form. Cathartic.

Update, 30th July, Saturday, 2:14 pm: In a strange symmetry my friend, and senior from JJ College, a leading architect from Assam, Amitabh Sharma is posting continuous nostalgic snaps from his Europe trip, especially Brussels, etc. Mirroring my own Paris hangover circa Saturn Retro 2009. I had given hime the movie long back, but now, I think he would understand the dimensions of  such Saturnine hangover.
Ultimately Energy of emotions, never gets created nor destroyed, it merely changes hands, like money. like currency. So, all that I have posted during this period, will transgress borders, boundaries and seep into different domains, with the passage of time.. ideally/ wishfully, haha!

Update, 8th August, Sunday: On 31st July, my phone crashed. Then, as I got it repaired, I had throat infection, viral, which saw me slowly recover, over the week. The weather was changing, movement, release, turbulence around. One could feel the distinct turn, change of events. Once, the retrograde energies diminished, the phase ends, there's a sudden release, an influx of energy, which is quite heady, and often becomes too much to initially handle, after such a long- drawn, constricted period of Saturn Retrograde. Hence, until the day, when Saturn Retrograde officially ends, one is advised to practice grounding, balancing rituals, only if order to remain oriented in this crossover of phases/ energies!

Saturn Retro 2016-20: Ultra Retro phase


Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles)Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles) and Saturn Retro 2015 (15 articles)

Ultra retro 2016: 10th July to 31st July
Dear friends, we're at the final three week phase of Annual Saturn Retrograde 2016, which, this time is from 10th July to 31st July.  Check the graph above, it's got the revised dates for Ultra Retro phase.

This period is a phase of breakthrough, forward movement, actualization, progress for the Sun, mars, Ketu ruled people. And a period of regression, retreat, withdrawal, retrospection for the Saturnine, or Rahu ruled people.

Saturnine updates, 10th July to today 21st July
Since I'm a Saturnine creature, this Ultra Retro period represents EXTREME doses of review, retrospection, retraction, review, analysis, re-examination, etc, etc. Below are my running/ live updates for this period..
Prologue: Falling Retro phase: The one month long Falling Retro phase: 6th June to 10th July (check graph above) which is a one month period of  movement breakthrough for all Saturnine ruled, fared well for me. I experienced flotation, dizzy anti gravity, breakthroughs, rapture, sparkling energies. especially towards the end of this one month phase, it ended with a two day dazzling sojourn through Bangalore, which was definitely buzzing with unprecedented energy.
But Sunday noon, 10th July, as I returned to Delhi, the energy descent commenced. The fall from sudden windfall began.. DOT On Schedule! Especially when the travel arrangements were "randomly" made by a person who, completely did not believe in Saturn Retrograde, astrology, anythiong at all!! And the scheduled annual 21 days of the most intense regression, descent, confusion, retraction for all Saturnine ruled people, commenced, fated.. ON the DOT!!
So cloudy/ clouded, heavy, enmeshed, nebulous was I, after that sharp descent...that it took me 10 whole days to post this post on Ultra Retro phase..!!
As customary to all saturn retrogrades post 2009, I draw comparison to the landmark wrongly timed Paris trip of Ultra Retro, 2009. And, as in many uncountable earlier posts, have relegated in detail, the commencing years of Saturn Retrograde have been a (in)-voluntary reversal of that wrongly timed windfall trip! So, when the descent, coming down, hangover commenced ON schedule  from 10th July itself... it's merely history reversing itself, uncannily.. On the Dot... On schedule!!

Update, 21st July, Thursday: I'm eleven days into Ultra retro 2016. Coludy, hazy, blurred vision, tendency to night blindness (began Vitamin A) along with continuing Vitamin B injections and capsules.
BUT, I'm extremely satisfied because I have been able to connect to some seriously potent Sun, Mars, Ketu souls, who have commenced their realization, energy becoming during this auspicious period for them!
However, ALL that you write, the concluding 21 days of this Ultra retro period, the sharp energies of this most acute, powerful Shakti energy phase of  the 4.5 month period of annual Saturn retrograde period.... like always... manages to completely unhinge me, uproot me, exasperate me.. totally!!
Each day into this swamp of 21 days of Ultra Retro seems so weighted, heavy, cloudy, repetitive, shaky. Unbelievable experience! I feel wracked by self doubt, denial, contradiction, questioning deeply and intensely..  my beliefs, my belief structures, existence itself!!
 I want to channelize all my inertial, visceral, ooze, saturnine, serpentine, complexity into this singular post!!

Update, 22nd July, Friday: This year, the descent process essential for Saturnine ruled was almost fatally delayed for me. The astrologically scheduled cathartic, redemption, regression process was almost not taking place. As if the strange shadow/ the elation/ high of  the wrongly timed Paris trip during Ultra Retro 2009 was enacting itself. But from last two days, the acidic bite of retrograde was finally taking it's scheduled grip upon my innards. The tentacular, sharp, ghoulish vaccination process of Ultra Retrograde was in action.The "kamur", the heartbreak, humiliation, downfall, persecution, weakness, scheduled for all Saturnine people during this period, was finally underway. The personal experience of this is so intensely bitter, yet, from the Saturnine perspective of  this Ultra Retro period.. it's perfectly timed.

23rd July, Saturday: Morning woke up early at about 6;23 am. sat out on our terrace, windy feeding pigeons biscuit crumbs. Brought out my journal and began updating the last weeks events of Ultra retro, from Day 6th, last Saturday, 16th July to this present day. Only when you bring pen to paper in a journal/ diary form, can you actually make out the visceral process of the saturnine Ultra Retro phase. Un-becomings, diffusions and perplexities.
Cleared out a pile of books and documents on my desk, and found one faded, stapled copy of a thesis (?) submission.. "Perplexity etc.. Incomplete project of the self.." author: Mriganaka Madhukailya, dated 2003. Hastily browsing through this document gifted to me long back by Mrigstradomus, I found text/ content that prophetically seemed to describe what I was currently experiencing in this Ultra Retro 2016. Bizzaro, dude! Hence would like to quote and explore some excerpts from it...

The incomplete project of the self/ Mriganaka Madhukailya/ document 2003.
"Indeterminacy, uncertainty, disorder, randomness, vagueness, fuzziness, ambiguity, crisis, chaos seem to capture all our attention and language.. Such terms denote prima facie, insuperable obstacles to the attainment of true, certain, or precise knowledge about things and events..". 
Currently I am feeling the mountainous pile up of Ultra Retro energies, as an insuperable obstacle, which is blocking me from clarity, knowledge, comprehension about my current confounding expereiences and events..
"Human reason has this peculiar fate, that...  it is burdened by questions, which,... it is not able to ignore, but which... it is also NOT able to answer..".
How creepily oracular is Mrigstradomus' text.. exactly what I'm experiencing in this current Ultra Retro.. regarding some ongoing discussions, confounding issues! Neither it's black, nor white. A vast grey fuzziness, oscillating, fluctuating indeterminacy, is all .. that I can experience and fathom!


Paris Week:reversal of Ultra retro 2009
For me most Saturn Retrogrades after 2009, has been a karmic pattern reversal of the great Saturn Retrograde 2009, one landmark year, where, the summation of many years of Saturn retrograde violations, finally came down crashing in one mountainous mega avalanche. The reasons for which is explained in these post from Saturn retro 2013 in detail: Saturn-retro-2013-68: negation of negation and the Paris reverse posts: Saturn-retro-2013-69: paris-reversed 01, then Saturn-retro-2013-71: paris-reversed-03 but post 70 seems to be missing, then..Saturn-retro-2013-72: paris-reversed-04 and the last conclusive post of the series.. Saturn-retro-2013-72: paris-reversed-04.
The last seven days of Ultra Retro 2009 comprised of the Paris trip from 27th April, Monday- to 3rd May Sunday. This year 2016, the last seven days of Ultra Retro 2009 begins from Monday, 25th July to 31st July, Sunday. Monday to Sunday, like in 2009. I call it now the "Paris" week..


Update, 25th July, Monday: On this Ultra Retro position, Monday, 27th April, 2009, we had set forth for Paris. We reached airport morning time, and the flight had set out at, I think, Noon. And, today Monday morning finds me in a hangover, later I have to go to Malviya Nagar, to sort out some vaastu issues of some family friends place, that they have collectively taken on rent, and the natural issues that arise from such an complex arrangement.
Monday, 2009: Every peripheral issues sorting out to Cohere/ Integrate into the leap/ flight/ rupture to Paris. Monday, 2016: Core/ Integral nucleus dripping out, dribbling away into peripheral territories and issues.. a natural entropy movement for all/ most energy systems.
I quote a poem from biker baba Ravi Jyoti Deka's poem "ride"...
Love's a fluid.. 
Now It's all smeared..  
These two stanzas perfectly depict the descent, the decay, the entropy, I'm experiencing today, on this Monday, 25th July. The perfect reversal of the adrenalin rush, the surge, leap, of the first flight to Paris, on Monday 27th April, '09.
I feel drained, old, peripheral, dumped, like an obsolete piece of machinery, abandoned in a swamp, like a relic of an abandoned car wreck, leftover banana peel, used sanitary napkin, coca cola gone flat and limp, stale yellowy milk, abandoned old man in a retirement home, like a forlorn old hag whose beloved has moved onto greener pastures, like a jello (custard jelly) gone flat and dead, like an .. wait.. why should i write more? Let me tag Ravi Deka with this post update..
let him add some of his literary gems, limericks, litanies, which I will integrate into this live/ current
post..

Update, 25th July, Monday, evening of Visceral ooze: Some days we don't post, and some days we post acutely. On  Monday 27th April, '09, we reached Paris after travelling on flight almost the whole day, with a stop over in Dubai. Inversely/ reversely, today, Monday, 25th July, 2016, whole day was a gradual grounding, descent of energies, a natural downflow of energies with a stopover at a very somewhat exotic place at Aurangzeb road, which I found the exact mirror inverse of the Dubai airport, with it's glitzy, glammy, exuberance. The place in Aurangzeb road was shady, quiet, an oasis, garden like.
The evening touchdown in Paris was accompanied by rain, and inversely today's such a dry, hot evening, and I'm regressing deeply into my innards, visceral, schizophernic, human ooze, the stuff of Sartres Nausea. the tenterhooks, and inner tentacles of being. Sitting in my shorts, typin these words in the haunting glow of the monitor on this severely humid, groggy, visceral evening. Swamplands of your inner world.
The forward rush of that Monday evening, Ultra Retro 2009, of touchdown at Paris, has reversed itself in this Monday evening, Ultra Retro 2016, in an inward, imploding, visceral, ooze of human slime/ residues. Regressing into my self. The inner backwaters, swamps, the mud slime, from whence we have crawled out as amphibious beings from the primitive bog swamp, the chemical soup of cellular ooze. I feel my body, now in terms of visceral ooze, the Body without organs, just a mass of visceral, crawling exoskeletal, crawling life form. And which has regressed into it's roots into the cellular/ chemical soup in the origins of the bog/swamp.
This visceral un-becoming, where the strands of one's being come apart layer by layer, strand by chemical strand is a kind of (in) voluntary process.This writing process has been completely fuelled by the acute regression energies of Saturn Retro's Ultra Retro phase. It fuels and actuates the entry process into the labyrinth of our inner selves. the un-becoming, that lies at the nucleus of  Saturn retrograde energies. Today, I took so many vitamins, to somewhat undo the vision bluriness, night blindness etc. I must have felt disoriented in the first evening in Paris, because inversely, today, there were some flecks of vision improvement, but with a long way to go.
This post is getting longer, now with all the regressive, visceral updates, additions. I think I'll continue it, later, if it reaches beyond a point, crossover into another post. RIGHT now, you are inside of my mind, thinking, at the pace of my thoughts, oozing at the pace of my inner, visceral ooze, you (absent/ virtual/ theoretical) reader, are one with my body/ mind. I see my bloated, hairy stomach swell and ebb in the hypnotic glow of this monitor, with the rhythm of my breath. My body is falling into this hapless, shapeless, mass of visceral abandon. The visceral, jelly ooze of Ultra Retro. ...
Conversely for the Sun, Mars, Ketu ruledyou should be feeling sharp, electric, focussed...
The visceral, jelly ooze of Ultra Retro. ..

Update, 29th July, Friday, Crashdown: On  Friday, 1st may, Mayday '09, the zenith of my Paris Trip, I witnessed, participtaed, shot the unbelievable Mayday processions at the heart of Paris.
And today morning, inversely, 29th July, Friday,  my phonje crashed, I'm out of contact, walking the streets in rain,  friendly repairman missing, lost and wandering like a dead soul, reached cousin Bubka's place, searching and searching.
On Wednesday, 27th July, I as a move to reverse the Wednesday, 29th april, Louvre museum day, began the mammoth task of plotting saturn retrograde graphs from my birth year to the current 2016. And also began the process of noting down historical events that occured each year during saturn retro, since 1973. Check Link: saturn-retrograde-graphs
Since then, the Retrograde energy has spiralled completely out of control, resulting in todays scheduled/ random crashdown and burnout. But the reversal is perfect...!!!
But still.. aarrggh!! Later, I saw Mulholland Drive.. again..
29th July, Friday, afternoon, Mulholland Drive: On  Friday, 1st may, Mayday '09, the zenith of my Paris Trip, I witnessed, participtaed, shot the unbelievable Mayday processions at the heart of Paris. And now I saw the dark, unnerving, rattling David Lynch movie.. Mulholland Drive. In which, the plot of the movie is directly depictive of the Saturn Retrograde process.. the split of the Disreal/ Unreal.
As in Mayday, 1st May, 2009, I was floating in the suspended animation of Paris magic like Naomi Watts in the beginning of the movie, a starstruck actress arriving in Hollywood. As the movie slowly unravels, she gets more and more entangled into the ghoulish entanglements of the underbelly of the underlying Disreal (read Ugly truths) which slowly strips her soul of the charm, innocence, and finally finds her crawling in the lowest belly of the darkest swamps. Mulholland Drive, kind of expresses the dark, visceral unbecoming from that magical, unreal Paris trip in Ultra Retro 2009. an unraveling journey, which took seven years to fulfil the cycle.
as an inverse, reverse, to balance that spectacular, stellar Mayday in Paris, of Ultra retro 2009, today I/ nature found me traversing dark underbelly of human emotions, and by lanes of Govind Puri, in rain and mud, and finally into the vortex/ Core of Mulholland Drive. The core of the mud swamp. from where, the natural dynamics/ turn of Saturn retrograde may unravel newer openings and directions for my becoming. balancing the magical Unreal of the Paris trip with the darkest visceral Disreal possible to my own mortal soul. For the spear that smote wound shall make the way for healing/ reversal...
Looking at this blog, the youtube link of Mulholland Drive puts up the seamiest still from the movie, haha, but only those who have seen it in it's entirety could understand the saying from Deconstruction.. "prefaces harbor lies.."..
....to be updated further......

...( scheduled updates until 31st of july)....

Saturn Retro 2016-19: Brexit situation


Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles)Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles) and Saturn Retro 2015 (15 articles)

23rd June 2016: analysing the astrology of Brexit..
Dear friends, taking a small detour from my narrow, microscopic analyses of ongoing Saturn Retrograde, I want to discuss a bit about Brexit or Wiki: Brexit-UK withdrawal from the EU which is a global event that happened during this Saturn Retro 2016 in Scorpio, and with the ongoing Guru Chandal Yog ( Rahu + Jupiter conjunction) in Leo. Read on about the Brexit story..

Guru Chandal Yog: The conjunction of Rahu and Jupiter in the same sign happens approximately after 7 to 8 years. This is a result of forward moving Jupiter  crossing one Zodiac sign in a year and Rahu permanently retrograde crosing through one Zodiac sign in a year. Jupiter and Rahu generally remain together in a sign together from 3 months to over a year. Guru Chandala is a powerful period of breakdown of older, dying, stagnant structures, and the birthing of subtle new seeds for the future times, to face the change of world history... if utilised properly..!!


Guru Chandala in 1994: From 18th May '94 to 11th Nov '94, Duration: 6 months

Events during Guru chandala 1994
On March 14th Apple computers releases the first Macintosh computers to use the new PowerPC Microprocessors. Birth of MAC to change the future world of computing, to today's I phones.
In May: Nelson Mandela was inaugarated as the First black president of South Africa, while American president Bill Clinton was first accused of sexual harassment.
In June: South Africa voluntarily rejoins the British Commonwealth after 32 years after having left it in 1961. AMALGAMATION of the African continent into British Commonewealth after 32 years. In May, Israel signs accord with Palestine and peace treaty with Jordan. IRA declares cease fire in Ireland.
In June: young bankers from the offices of J.P. Morgan are meeting in Florida devising ways to make money beyond traditional commercial or investment banking. These are young men who will see themselves as exceptionally clever and capable in making money by bets in "derivative" markets and exceptionally sound in their grasp of macro-economics. It will lead to the economic collapse that will begin in December, 2007. Seeds of future economic meltdown created!!
On Nov 4th, in San francisco, the first conference devoted entirely to the subject of the commercial potential of the World Wide Web opens. Featured speakers include Marc Andreessen of Netscape, Mark Graham of Pandora Systems, etc. Birth of the current online, commercial world!!!
On Nov 7thWXYC, the student radio station of the University of North Carolina, provides the world's first internet radio broadcast. Laying the foundation for all future podcasts, live webcam, etc etc for the future world.


SUMMARY of Guru Chandala, 1994
Even though South Africa, World Wide Web created a humble but unbelivable platform for the future, Jupiterian people like Bill Clinton, and reputed financial institution like J.P. Morgan created the seed, also created an unbelievable platform for forever quoted presidential and financial disasters incarnate.

The build up and execution of thje Sep 11 attacks change world history, security at airports, and lots and lots of other things, throughout the world FOREVER. In November, China being admitted in to WTO seems subtle, small, but creates the birth of the Dragon, the foundation for China's current Economic Superpower status in the last ENTIRE DECADE!!
In India, Gidhra massacare, and Ahmedabad riots change a vast way of outlook in India, forever to be cited and remembered.

Guru Chandala in 2016: From 29th Jan  '16 to 11th Aug '16, Duration: 6 months

The current Guru Chandala of  2016

Out of all these four years of Guru Chandala period, illustarted above, this year 2016, is special as Overlapping Guru Chandal with Saturn Retrograde has further overlapped with a turbulent annual astrological event.. Shani Mangal yog ( Conjunction of saturn and Mars) in Scorpio from 20th Feb to June 17th and July 12th to Sep 18th.
Hence, the day/ date of Brexit, 23rd june, 2016, saw the power of three powerful overlapping astrological combinations to manifest it's rupturous energies... Guru Chandal yog, Saturn Retrograde and Shani Mangal yog. Hence, in short Brexit is a product of two opposing, conflicting conjunctions: Guru Chandala yog, and Shani Mangal yog. 
Also, as opposed to previous years of Guru chandala, there has been no such chaotic event except Brexit in these past 6 months, so the intensity of Guru chandala 2016 further combined with Shani mangal yog has been concentrated into one singular impactful.. event, which will impact a LOT of us for a loong time to come... BREXIT..!!!


Brexit is a result of conflicting energies..

Check above diagram, Brexit in Guru Chandala Yog, i.e, the Rahu Jupiter axis sees the decision being pulled apart by two opposing forces of Jupiter and Rahu. Jupiter representing the guru, the high priest, the Conservative, traditional, conventional,right wing, internal, patriotic forces. And, Rahu representing foreigners, immigrants, outsiders, export contacts, diplomatic alliances, foreign country collaborations, etc.
And along the Shani Mangal yog, i.e, the Mars Saturn axis, sees the decision being pulled apart by two opposing forces of Mars and Saturn. Mars representing the militaristic, adrenalin rush, inflammable, combustive, hot, tempestous headlong rush, the engine of forward thrust, the accelerator of the engine. And, Saturn representing long term implications, conservative slow policies, patience, slow negotiation, elaborateness, layerings of lawyerings..
Hence the Brexit child is a spawn born of unimaginable conflicting forces, the impact of which will have it's effect far and wide, once this acute conjunction of these four planets get over with.

Solutions for Brexit
The Solution for Brexit would not be easy, beacuse it's the birth spawn of two opposing, conflicting conjunctions: Guru Chandala yog, and Shani Mangal yog, but definitely remedies to repair the situations should be Fourfold.. i.e, the synthesis of four factors separately. Like the Four elements representing Mahavishnu.. Conch, Lotus, Mace, and Chakra (Wheel).
Firstly the Conch, representing which is usually used to announce important events, wars. So communication links, to both the external and internal agency communication would be ivotal to sort, categorise this paranormal currency upheaeval. Instead of sitting on their conservative approach the in- charge authorities should foster a massive think tank, communication conclave in order to deal with the situation effectively. Despite the decision the diplomatic connection to foreign collaborators should be kept alive in order to address the crisis energy of this situation.
Lotus, representing meditation, realization, acceptance, acknowledge of self, karmic laws is paramount to overcome this turbulent game changing equation. Also, to remember the fact, Lotus blooms in the mud, hence this Crises if utilized properly can represent a deeper insight, grip, connection to the economic, political, geopolitical forces around to sublate to a higher/ deeper state of growth/ evolution.
Mace, representing brute force, hammering power, necessary to sort out, all the complicate idiosyncratic dissents that ultimately was the starting point for this debacle. Any decision in order to resolve this complication should be reinforced with persevering inertia of intention.
Chakras,  the wheel of life, representing cycles of history, the wheel of fortune upon which civilisation revolves. Lot of time has transpired from the days of Sun never setting on the British empire. The historical vantage point to this cyclic event has to be acknowledge and decisions have to be based on historical insight, with reference to previous economic cycles. Only positioning the historical event of Brexis on the global timeline, the Chakra of historical cycles, can the nature, position, function and potential of this giant move can be comprehended, analysed and negotiated.


Moreover, check the above graph, BREXIT has occured on 23rd June, the falling Retro, blue phase of ongoing Saturn Retrograde 2016. Which is a good period for the Saturn ruled and not great for the Sun, mars, pitta ruled. SINCE, the decision, an albeit humongous and levithan one, has been taken, now Britan should move into a complete Saturnine approach of things, so that it can manage it's currency situation, domestic situation optimally. LET the SUN set on the British empire, but a new , mutant Saturnine Dawn begin, heralding in a newer, post modern era to the empire reinvented...


Plus broadly.. I would suggest a fourfold remedial programme connected with Rahu, Jupiter,, Saturn and Mars for all those connected with the Brexit currency and issue.. modifications of which are subject to individual planetary horoscopes.

Saturn Retro 2016-18: Falling Retro part 2: Innards


Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles)Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles) and Saturn Retro 2015 (15 articles)

Falling Retro: 6th June to 6th July; story so far..
Dear friends, as the ongoing discussion from the previous post Saturn-retro-2016-17-falling-retro-phase, we're in the phase of Falling Retro 2016 from 6th June to 6th July (check graph above).
I was discussing, my current experience of Falling Retro phase 2016, is the direct  reverse of the Falling Retro phase, 2009, where I was in a month long build up for that landmark, wrongly timed Paris trip 2009. Now, Falling Retro, 2009 is reversing itself.. in a massive Fall, decay that I'm currently experiencing.
In Falling Retro phase, 2009, friends who were urging me to embrace the windfall and accompany my wife on her office trip to Paris, are now, in Falling Retro phase, 2016, are urging me to return to Guwahati and start my own work, as soon as she returns from UK. In Falling Retro phase 2009, those who had asked me to plunge headlong into the Paris trip at the pinnacle of Ultra Retro phase are now, in Falling Retro, 2016, asking to abandon base, escape the heat, and scurry back home, at the exact same pinnacle of the pinnacle of  Ultra Retro phase, 2016. Talk about exact reversals/ turnarounds..

Falling Retro: part 2: entrails
29th June, today finds me at an extremely complex conjecture in time. Where, because of Vijay kate's Mac being in our office, I have begun the process of uncompressing the raw footage of my already long completed, feature length film After Paris with Bubka/ aka Sangram, my cousin, and cinemtaographer/ editor/ collaborator of the film. Once uncompressed, we shall attempt to edit it and take proper render of the entire film.. all over again.
Sorting through folders upon folders of randomly scattered footage, from different cameras, feel like sorting through the the vast innards, entrails of a long dead, long gone, great, gazzilionic beast, from a prehistoric dinosaur era. So vast are it's entrails, that we're drowning inside the coil of it's innards, viscera.. searching for a long swallowed friend, long lost, in the coils of it's vast intestines...
People always advice one to move on ahead, but right now in Falling Retro, 2016, we're taking a giant leap backward, plummeting behind into long gone dinosaur entrails.
ALSO the contrast of shift. Falling Retro phase, 2009, saw me enter a feminine/ Wife ruled space after almost two months of  masculine militaristic programme during Rising Retro. Whereas, Falling Retro phase, 2016, sees me enter a highly singular isolated masculine space after almost two months of feminine/ Wife ruled militaristic programme of  Rising Retro. Falling Retro phase, 2009, saw me enter from masculine to feminine space, whereas, Falling Retro phase, 2016, sees me enter a masculine space from a feminine space. This distinct shift is perfectly contrasting!
ALSO, as the days pass by, in Falling Retro, 2016,the great Gravitas of my wife's return to home base looms ahead, whereas in Falling Retro phase, 2009, it saw a Great Levitas of the windfall Paris trip approaching in stellar speed. And, the shadow of that event in 2009, is creating this sharp Fall in Falling Retro, 2016.

Falling Retro '16: The Fall
Remarkable, that after I returned from Paris, in 2009, I saw this movie by Tarsem Singh.. The Fall, which perfectly described the hangover, crashdown that was to follow years after that windfall trip @ ultra Retro 2009. Yesterday, someone was giving a hard disk of movies to a friend and it had only one movie by Tarsem.. The Fall! And I could completely connect to the energy of The Fall, during Falling Retro, 2016, as a shadow of the build up, adrenalin rush of the Paris Trip, 2009. Somehow, i always get signs or props from the environment that helps me gauge insight into the energies of prevailing astro transits.

Saturn Retro 2016-17: Falling Retro phase


Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles)Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles) and Saturn Retro 2015 (15 articles)

Falling Retro: 6th June to 6th July
Dear friends, as discussed in the previous posts, this year, we're in the phase of Falling Retro 2016 from 6th June to 6th July (check graph above). This one month long period represents an Oasis of  Saturnine energies in the otherwise Solar, Rajasic 4.5 month long period of annual Saturn Retrograde.
For me, even though the first two weeks of Falling Retro, was quiet, humdrum still and glacial, suddenly from 17th June onwards, it unfolded in an outburst of Saturnine movement and activity.  In fact, ten days into the blue phase, I was really beginning to get worried, as for us Saturnine ruled, it represents an improtant period of Saturnine indications, which are like a trailer, or preview of things to come, when Saturn ends it's retrograde motion, an finally goes directional for the next 8.5 months. However as discussed in the previous posts, Saturn-retro-2016-16-geographical reversal, I was earlier supposed to have been in hometown Guwahati, during this period. But because of some last minute synchronous events, stayed back in Delhi. And now, because of which, am experiencing an Geographical reversal/ inversion of my probable hometown trip to Guwahati.

Geographical/ Spatial Reversal for me... Part 2
As mentioned in my previous post, and earlier ones.. (Saturn-retro-2016-8: Reversal-of-2009, Part 1, onwards), most Saturn Retrogrades, for me have been a reversal of the great Saturn Retrograde of 2009. A landmark year of crash-down, which stands as a testimony for all future Saturn retrogrades to follow. The Saturn Retrograde of 2009 stands as a foundation, as a historical syllabus, a reference for all future seasons of Saturn Retrogrades.

And this year, much more than an historical/ event reversal, because of my cancelled trip to hometown Guwahati I'm experiencing this month long Falling Retro phase more in terms of a Physical/ Spatial/ Geographical reversal of the probable events/ experiences of the cancelled hometown trip.

Centripetal / Centrifugal forces.. 
One of our friends Vijay Kaate having home repair issues is using our office for his interior/ project to be completed within a deadline. Then Susmit, my recently shifted from Delhi back to hometown Guwahati, had also arrived in town for his father's treatment at Medicity. All in all, all these fortuitous, random events, movements have conspired for me to being completely centered around home ground, Gk2 itself. If I had been at hometown Guwahati, now, I would've been at the centre of Ambubachi mela at Kamakhya, at the CENTRIFUGAL CORE of a great energy storm, amidst a GIANT mega scaled religious pilgrimage of  millions of people!!!
Inversely, now here in Delhi.. despite all movements there is huge Centripetal force that has somehow managed to keep me within reach of the boundaries of home and hearth. An invisible centripetal force has kept me grounded ..here in Delhi.
Despite the month long Falling Retro phase, the Geographical Reversal energies of my cancelled hometown Guwahati trip, seems to predominate the experience of this years Falling Retro phase.
I tapped into this current flow of Centripetal/ Centrifugal energies to add a long pending paragraph based on the Centripetal/ Centrifugal distinction of forces in my Rahu Ketu introduction in my Ketu Currents blog.

Outburst / Ennui 

The Geographical Reversal energies of my cancelled hometown Guwahati trip, has kept the usual release, volcanic outburst of the month long Falling Retro phase, at balance, at check by it's strongly emergent Centripetal force. Remembering the 1989 movie, Dead Calm starring Nicole Kidman and Sam Neill. The poster of this movie perfectly expresses my experience of this otherwise turbulent phase of Saturn retro 2016.

Whereas.. in hometown Guwahati I would have experienced a floodtide of Centrifugal outburst, here in Delhi, I'm experiencing an Centripetal crushing weight of Gravitas, upon my shoulders, neck area, my Cervical, spinal area, which might have been causing the vertigo, dizziness of the past so many months now. even though, meanwhile, I did an blood test for Vitamins B12 D3, and found it extremely low, and have just completed a five injection course of B12, to be now followed by an Oral vitamin Course. But the Doctor also said to do an X Ray of my neck, Cervical, Cervix.

.. updated later..

Update, 28th June.. 
Watched a movie, Whitewash, starring brilliant actor Thomas Haden Church, more famous for his villainous role as Sandman in Spiderman 3. This movie, kind of expresses the still, stagnant energies yet bristling with potent energies of this current Saturn Retro sub period. And these energies shine out, most so, as a direct Spatial/ Geographical inverse of my cancelled Hometown Guwahati trip. If I had been in hometown Guwahati, now, it would have been a great, and paranormal contrast to the energy of the movie Whitewash... a still, decaying, festering, mulling over, visceral, slow burning, smoldering, guys alone at home energy experience that I'm currently going through.
I can compare this, my current experience, as a reversal of the Falling Retro phase of Saturn Retro, 2009, wherein the preparations, ground work for that landmark, wrongly timed Paris trip was full underway. The paperwork, decisions, movements, etc for me accompanying Sangeeta to her office trip to Paris was full underway. The energy build of Falling Retro phase of 2009, is inverting itself by the massive decay that I'm experiencing in this current Falling Retro phase of Saturn Retro, 2016. Drowsy, weak, vitamin ultra deficiencies, low morale, fucked up, feeling....

Reversal of falling retro 2009 and 2016
Update: 29th June: As mentioned in the earlier paragraph, my current experience of Falling Retro phase 2016, is the direct  reverse of the Falling Retro phase, 2009. Wherein, the high build up, ground work for that landmark, windfall, wrongly timed Paris trip was full underway. Hence, now reversing itself.. by the massive Fall, decay that I'm experiencing.
In Falling Retro phase, 2009, many friends were urging me to take the plunge, embrace the windfall, to accompany my wife on her office trip to Paris. Now, in Falling Retro phase, 2016, those same friends are urging me to return to Guwahati and start my own work, as soon as she reaches back to Delhi from UK.What a contrasting turnabout!! Jai Shanidev!
Then, in Falling Retro phase, 2009,everyone around asked me to dump all my reservations and simply plunge into the Paris trip at the height/ pinnacle/ Ultra Retro phase of  Retro 2009. As soon, as I reached back to Delhi, the Centrifuge of peripheral urging ons, cajolings, vanished, dissolved into thin air. Such is the power of Saturn Retrograde!!
And now, in Falling Retro phase, 2016, people around are asking to abandon base, escape the heat, the music, and scurry back home, at the pinnacle of scheduled Karmic catharsis of the concluding Ultra Retro phase, 2016. Then in Falling Retro phase 2009,as I let the peripheral encouragements pump adrenalin into me, now in Falling Retro phase 2016, I'm letting, allowing, cooperating with the peripheral discouragements to drag me down. Only if in atonement, for the corresponding heady, airy violations of Saturn Retro 2009..
What fascinates me perpetually about such correspondences between different years of saturn Retrograde, is that almost exact GEOMETRIC inversion of events, emotions, experiences, perspectives, and energy unfolding. With each saturn Retrograde, I somehow try to Re-write, Re-codify the energy patterns of my prior Saturn Retro mistakes. The correspondence of events between Saturn Retrograde seasons, SEVEN years apart, Retro 2009 and 2016 is truly mind boggling!

Saturn Retro 2016-16: Geographical reversals


Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture.

Falling Retro: 6th June to 6th July
Dear friends, in the previous posts I have discussed that we're in the one month long  phase of Falling Retro 2016 (check graph above). This one month phase, is a period of very different energies  before the final concluding phase of Saturn retro 2016, the three week long acute, super sharp, hyper rajasic Ultra Retro phase from 6th July to about 27 July this year.
Every year I find the energies of this one month long Falling Retro phase a period of very variable, variegated, differential energies. This one month long phase of Falling Retro constitutes a in-between, inter-phase is very interesting as it shows increasing saturnine energies in the otherwise highly Solar, Rajasic phase of the annual four and a half month long period of Saturn Retrograde. And this year what I'm experiencing is a Geographical Reversal.

Geographical Reversals
As discussed in many previous posts.. Saturn-retro-2016-8: Reversal-of-2009, Part 1, and Saturn-retro-2016-9- Reversal-of-2009 Part 02, and Saturn retro-2016-10-reversal-of-2009-Part 03, and  Retro-2016-11-reversal-of-2009-part-04: most Saturn Retrogrades, for me have been a reversal of the great Saturn Retrograde of 2009. A landmark year of crash-down which, stands as a a foundation of  energy and historical reversals of future Saturn retrograde syllabus. But this year I'm experiencing the month long Falling Retro phase more than a historical event reversal in terms of a kind of Spatial/ Geographical reversal..
Geographical reversal: research I was supposed to have been in hometown Guwahati, as my wife left for her one month long trip to the UK to visit her sister. But, because of some last minute reasons, and developments, the trip back home began to be postponed, on and on, until, it's been already more than 10 days, that I've hung around in Delhi. and am experiencing this month long Falling Retro phase period as a complete Geographical Reversal of  my probable hometown Guwahati trip.
In the many inversions, and reversals experienced in Saturn retrogrades before, this is the first time that I'm experiencing something as a spatial inversion, Geographical reversal of a probable alternative journey, that did not happen..
I had explained in my previous post: Saturn-retro-2016-15-terminator-genisys how this year retro 2016, has become like the Terminator_Genisys storyline, where many previous events, interventions, reversals have overlapped, since that Nexus/ landmark Paris trip year of Saturn retro 2009, upon which I was compelled to make my first feature length movie After Paris.
And the journey finds me latest aspect of this reversal of saturn retro 2016, is the Geographical reversal of my scheduled return to  Guwahati trip, that was supposed to, but hasnt happened so far...

A Geography of Clouds/ Non space
By and by I found myself landing up at the peers-2016 residency at Khoj where many student/ artists showcased their works, that were oozing with the freshness, vibrancy of young bustling creative souls at work, solid/ void space interpretation of Smita-rajmane, the unraveling multi medium, multi dimensional mosaic like unfolding of Arijit-bhattacharyya, the cathartic, fractured, heartfelt narratives of  Jjohnson-kshetrimayum the sensual, reptilian humour, erotic, irreverent, quirky, dark pulpy graphic work of  Manojit-samanta and the floating anti gravitational gazing masks installation of Anuradha-upadhyay.
Suddenly, in a Retrograde mood, I recalled the geographical/ spatial inversion of my Louvre museum trip, in that Saturn Retro of 2009. Whereas a vast distance had seprated me from the classical, infinitely familiar standing betwixt the gravity/ anti-gravity of floating masks, I pondered at these young artists. I had visited them two nights before, where I could interact at length with their work in progress. Poring inside the metadynamics of their creative process, I could find my own former retrograde selves, residual ghosts of my personal loss/ longing/ fear/ aversion/ desire floating in their works. This random intersection at Khoj, felt like a scene out of the  Terminator_Genisys storyline, where we/ I traverse in future/past probabilities, meeting our alternative selves carry out their individual alternative parallel realities.

Louvre museum 2009 reversed...
Standing amidst the haunting looming, masks of Anuradha-upadhyay,  I felt a distinct reversal of my classic Saturn Retro 2009, Paris Trip, especially a inversion/ reversal of the day i visited the Louvre museum.
