Although it’s very difficult to predict the influence of planets on a given individual without referring to his or her birth chart the following is intended only as a general guideline. For confirmation, however, you must refer to your birth chart. Based on the assessment of planetary strengths or weaknesses in your birth chart, placement of planets in your current progressive regular and ninefold charts, and the current operating planetary cycles the following may or may not be applicable.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold conjunction (March 26 – April 10)
If you have a Neptune-Saturn conjunction or opposition in your birth chart, and if your Gochar (transit) chart is influenced by either of these planets, then you are likely to experience a subtle but serious financial or social setback, or an unpleasant secret will be revealed to you. If you are planning to take a long distance (overseas) trip during this period, be extra careful of nasty surprises, or even being stranded in places you never dream of.
On the collective level, covert activities will be on rise. Natural as well as man-made calamities are very likely. Places like Russia and China are likely to experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open.
Rahu/Ketu-Jupiter ninefold squares (April 3-5)
Jupiter-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have such squares in their natal charts. Insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness, difficulty in keeping the faith in God are some of the symptoms of these squares. If you have such squares in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the Gochar (transit) chart then you need to look at the things with a different attitude. The best thing to do is to stay the course of present action without making any new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure to yourself, and unhappy with family.. Well, that’s how you going to feel this time. Keep your faith strong!
On a collective level, religions around the world will find difficulty in carrying out their activities and in general, keeping people happy. Loss of a well known religious figurehead is likely.
Mars-Neptune Square (April 8-11)
Typically this square is very unfavorable and unfortunate in general. For those who have such square in their birth chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the Gochar (transit) chart, they need be extra careful. The best thing to do is to lay low key, not make any new commitment, and avoid taking any sort of risk.
On the world scene, expect some sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening and greater possibility of both natural and man-made calamities. The countries that are most likely to be affected during these three days would be Russia, China, Afghanistan and Pakistan region.
Pluto-Rahu ninefold quincunx (April 8-18)
Unless these planets are favorably placed in your birth chart, such quincunx between Pluto and any one of the lunar nodes, in general, means drastic unwanted changes (transformations) pertaining to aspects of your life described by the houses they belong to. Usually such transformations are very painful if lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), and/or Pluto is affecting your life via your current Gochar (transit) chart. In my opinion, best way to deal with this situation is to (which is not easy to do) accept the inevitable change, and move on with your life. There’s no point in brooding over it, and not letting your past go.
On a collective level, an eruption of new waves of violence in the Palestine-Israel, Syria and Afghanistan-Pakistan regions are likely. And perhaps, towards the end of this period due to Pluto’s transformation process, the resulting changes are likely to become irreversible. In addition, world religions in general, and religious leaders in particular, may experience themselves having to go through crisis that demand changes. In other words, the orthodox religious leaders may come under social and moral pressures to change the way they handle their responsibilities.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold sextile (Uranus-Ketu ninefold trine) (April 14-19)
Uranus-Rahu ninefold sextile is going to be very favorable for those who have lunar nodes favorably placed in their natal charts with respect to Uranus. If such placing is connected to the first house, second house, ninth house, tenth house, or eleventh house then expect monetary as well as power gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. The ideas that you always wanted to pursue but somehow could never get started….now is the time to follow that dream. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period. It’s time to jump in and enjoy this period.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold quincunx (April 15-26)
If in your birth chart Pluto makes a quincunx with Uranus, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your Gochar (transit) chart, then you are very likely to be affected by this quincunx. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and a totally new and a very unpleasant experience in that particular field. Be ready to face this unwanted experience. Stay alert and try not to start a new venture that requires taking a risk. It’s like you are on a business trip or company assignment and you are immediately called off or caught in a situation that you find very difficult if not impossible to get out.
At a collective level, the Pluto-Uranus ninefold quincunx could bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its international agenda, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Biden administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the Biden administration could get tangled with.
Saturn-Rahu trine (Saturn-Ketu sextile) (April 15 – May 5)
Saturn-Rahu trine is usually favorable for those who have lunar nodes favorably placed in their natal charts with respect to Saturn. If such placing is connected to the first house, second house, ninth house, tenth house, or eleventh house then expect monetary as well as power gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. The ideas that you always wanted to pursue your desired goals but somehow could never get started….now is the time to follow that dream. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period. It’s time to jump in and enjoy this period.
Mars-Pluto Quincunx (April 17-19)
This short period is likely to be very frustrating for those who have Mars-Pluto opposition, quincunx, square, or conjunction in their natal charts. Typically this quincunx is very unfavorable from the point of view of facing situations that are beyond our control. Unexpected problems are likely to occur with astonishing speed and without any notice. For those who have such quincunx, opposition or conjunction in their birth chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the Gochar (transit) chart, they need to be on guard. Stay very low key, do not make any new commitment, and avoid taking any sort of risk. Also, experiences like a sudden incident of fire, or an accident involving explosive material are very possible.
On the world scene, sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening, possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities are likely. The countries that are most likely to be affected during this period will be: the United States of America, Iraq, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel.
Uranus-Jupiter ninefold sextile (April 18-23)
This auspicious sextile is good for all world religions as well as for people who are engaged in activities that help us expand morally, socially as well as materially.
For those who have well placed Jupiter and Uranus in their birth chart (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to experience very positive energy during this period. People involved in the religious activities are likely experience a sudden boost in their daily activities, and religious authorities are going to be well recognized by societies.
On a collective level, religious, academic, and social fields are very likely to enjoy the new and positive changes occurring in their respective fields.
Saturn-Rahu ninefold conjunction (Saturn-Ketu opposition) (April 21-27)
When a Saturn-Rahu ninefold conjunction occurs, it’s not favorable period for those who have such a conjunction or square in their birth charts. In addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting your life via your Gochar (transit) chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in the areas which are affected by these planets as shown in your natal chart. The affected people should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such conjunction can make things difficult for you and make you feel miserable. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that require you to make a crucial decision till this period is passed.
On a collective level, Russia, China and to some extent, Europe may experience social or political turmoil during this period. Also, for the Republican Party in the United States and for republicans, it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold conjunction and Neptune-Ketu opposition (April 28 – May 6)
If you have a poor placing of Neptune-Rahu (or Neptune-Ketu) by being connected to the sixth, eighth, and the twelfth house in your birth chart, and have current operating cycles influenced by one of these planets, then you are likely to experience instability caused due to sudden changes in activities and surroundings around you. Such experiences might turn out to be very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit to anything new during this period and stay low key.
On the collective level, social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out. Eastern European countries are also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration. Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of Neptune’s secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.
