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.
Pluto-Jupiter Square (July 4 – August 21)
This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This square will create religious challenges as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms.
In your birth chart if Jupiter and Pluto are either in square, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are about to face new challenges in your life. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new and a very different and challenging experience in that particular field. Be ready to accept this new challenge since you could receive the rewards if you succeed.
On a collective level, religious and academic and to some extent social fields are very likely to see changes coming in their respective fields. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic, but the majority of us are going to embrace this new wave of change and are very likely to enjoy it.
Uranus-Saturn opposition (July 16 – Aug 4)
The fifth and the last leg of the Saturn-Uranus opposition will occur during July 16 – August 4, 2010 along the sidereal Virgo-Pisces axis. It is not good for those who have such opposition or square in their birth charts. In addition, if the planet Uranus or Saturn is affecting your life via your current progressive 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. Such people should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such opposition can make things so miserable and difficult for you that most likely you are not going to forget them in your entire life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin till this period is passed.
On a collective level, in my opinion, this leg of the Saturn-Uranus opposition will be positive for the United States since this opposition occurs along the creative and spiritual Virgo-Pisces axis. The Russia and/or China may experience social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions between the USA and Russia and USA and China rising.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction (and Uranus/Ketu opposition) (July 25 – Aug 15)
If in your birth chart Uranus is in conjunction with the lunar node Rahu, and if any one of these two planets are influencing you now via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in your professional and financial areas during this period. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. This conjunction can become dangerous, and ruin your plans and bring about the unexpected disaster in every which way. In short, during this period you have been tested. If you have strong and positively placed lunar nodes and Uranus in your birth chart, then perhaps you need not worry.
On a collective level, the United States and in particular, the Republic Party and republicans are likely to run into some very difficult period. Also, USA and Russia and USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine (August 1-5)
If you have a well placed Neptune in your birth chart, and is in trine with Saturn, and if you are presently being influenced by any of these planets (Neptune or Saturn) through their current operating cycles, then you are likely to experience a very positive period in the areas signified by the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart. Strong intuitive power, very positive environment, and in general, feeling great about yourself and everything around you are some of the symptoms that you are likely to enjoy.
Collectively on a global scene, this period is very positive for Russia and China. In addition, most of the technological areas (especially biotech) are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.
Pluto-Mars Square (August 2-4)
This square may cause great turmoil in lives of individuals who have Pluto-Mars square in their natal charts. Depending on the positions of these planets the matters related to the respective houses are likely to be affected. The severity of the manifestation would be proportional to the strength of this square in the natal chart. The sudden or drastic change in profession or at work place are common manifestations of this square.
On a collective level or on world scene, natural and man-made calamities can not be ruled out.
Pluto-Ketu ninefold trine (and Pluto-Rahu sextile) (August 5-22)
If through your current progressive chart influence of either Pluto or lunar node is active and if Pluto is favorably positioned with respect to lunar nodes in your natal chart expect a very favorable time. Such positive events will be related to the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspect. For example, if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in relationship area, or business partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involved it may financially prove to be a very rewarding period.
On a collective level, this is a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
Saturn-Jupiter opposition (August 11-21)
Jupiter-Saturn opposition is going to be unfavorable for those who have both the planets, Jupiter and Saturn, are unfavorably placed in their natal charts. Frustration, loss of motivation, insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness are some of the symptoms of this opposition. This is like a test period. A period that can be viewed a real positive opportunity from self discovery standpoint since it will require you to bring best out of you to deal with situations around you. If you have such opposition in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through your current progressive cycle 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 new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure of yourself, and unhappy with family.. well, that’s how you going to feel this time.
On a collective level, religions around the world will find difficulty in carrying out their activities, more controversies that test traditional moral values are likely to occur, and in general, religious authorities will have difficulty in keeping people happy.
Mars-Rahu, and Mars-Ketu Squares (August 12-14)
During these three days, Mars makes a square to each of the lunar nodes. Typically these squares are very unfavorable and unfortunate in general. For those who have these squares in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle, they need be 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, both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives during these three days are likely.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold sextile (August 12 – September 8)
If Uranus and Pluto are favorably placed in your natal charts, 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.
On a collective level, this is an extraordinary time for technological discoveries and inventions. Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this period. For the United States, in general, this period is going to be remarkable and very successful.
Pluto-Saturn square (August 12-28)
If in your birth chart Pluto makes a square with Saturn, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you want to consider taking extra precaution in dealing with money matters, people at work, especially with your adversaries. In general, this is the time to stay low key and not be aggressive. Be cautious and alert as much as possible. Do not trust anybody during this period.
In general, Pluto-Saturn square is spiritually challenging. One can tremendously benefit from this square by properly channeling the energy to spiritually transform. However, from material standpoint, this square is a bad news, a total disaster as it test you by stripping you with your material pleasures and addictions.
On a collective level, Russia is likely to face with some serious challenges and perhaps sudden changes. To some extent China is also going to have a similar experience.
Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx (August 18-21)
The Saturn-Rahu quincunx is not good for those who have such quincunx in their birth charts. In addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting you via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in areas affected by these planets as indicated by your natal chart. Such people should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such quincunx can make things so miserable and difficult for you that you are never going to forget them in your life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin till this period is passed.
On a collective level, Russia or China may experience social or political unrest. Also, in the United State for the Republic Party and republicans including for the republican president Bush it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold quincunx (Aug 20-24)
When Saturn-Uranus ninefold quincunx occurs, it is not good for you if you have such quincunx or square in your birth chart. In addition, if the planet Uranus or Saturn is affecting your life via your current progressive 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. You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such quincunx can make things very miserable and difficult for you. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin till this period is passed.
On a collective level, the United States of America, Russia or China may experience social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising among them.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx (August 26-30)
If you have Neptune-Saturn quincunx in your birth chart, and if your current planetary operating cycle 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 for nasty surprises, or even being stranded in places you never dream of. You may experience situations totally beyond your control.
On collective level, covert activities will be on rise. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities are very likely during this period. 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.
