1) Will Steve Smith's purple patch continue in the upcoming year?
Important Astrological Observation :-
- Jupiter will be transiting over his Natal Ketu, it will be aspecting his Saturn in the Sagittarius sign, it will also be aspecting his Rahu in the Aquarius sign in his Solar Chart, till 11th August, 2016.
- Transiting Saturn will be aspecting his natal retrograde Mercury, the
- Sun and Jupiter in the Taurus Sign. It will also be aspecting his Ketu during the entire year ahead.
- Rahu- Ketu will be in half return phase post 30th January, 2016.
Astrological Predictions :-
- Considering the above mentioned planetary transits, Ganesha feels that Steve's pace and joyride will get affected due to the negative and restrictive influence of the transiting Saturn. Things may get slowed down and may not work as per the plans of Smith. On the other hand, Jupiter will act as a catalyst and speed up his progress. Jupiter's expansive influence will help make his technique and batting style much more formidable.
- The key lies in the way he will handle the Saturn's influence, and how he makes the best use of the Jupiter's benevolent grace.
- He will have to put in a lot of hard work and effort to achieve the best results, as Saturn will test his skills in the year ahead.
- On the large, the year ahead looks to be a mixed one for Steve, as though he may chip in with wonderful performances, he will not be able to maintain his consistency.
Ganesha wishes good luck to Steve Smith.
