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.
Retrograde Jupiter (Nov 3 – March 2)
Jupiter will continue to be retrograde in its motion in December. It will stay retrograde until February 10 in the sidereal zodiac Gemini. For those who have a well placed Jupiter in their birth charts and if Jupiter’s period is currently in operation, such people are likely to feel the deceleration in their progress. Remember it’s only temporary! Need to put more energy in to whatever you do to achieve what you need to achieve.
On the world scene, particularly in religious world, “confusion” will take the center stage and things are likely to move at frustratingly slow rate. The world economy will likely to experience a lot slower growth.
Retrograde Saturn (September 27 – February 8)
Saturn will continue to be retrograde during December. For those who have a well placed Saturn in their birth charts and if Saturn’s period is currently in operation, such people are likely to feel the deceleration in their progress. Remember it’s only temporary! Need to put more energy in to whatever you do to achieve what you need to achieve.
On the world scene, generally, the projects that deal with expansion are likely to either stay on hold or experience sluggish progress. In religious world, things are likely to move at frustratingly slow rate. In the political arena what may seem like progress will turn out to be a disaster.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold trine (Nov 11 – Dec 31 except Dec 1,2,10, 14-17, 21-23, 28-29)
Uranus-Pluto trine is going to be very favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts. 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, due to a positive involvement of USA as a broker in providing a meaningful solution to Israel and Palestinian on their ongoing conflict, expect some decreased friction between those two countries. Also, United States is very likely to be successful in tracking down and possibly capturing the main figures that were responsible for the terrorist activities. In general, this is a very good period for the United States as well for those who deal with technological research. Expect some new important technological breakthrough during these 30 days.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition and Neptune-Ketu ninefold conjunction (December 14-21)
For those who have poor placing of Neptune-Rahu (or Neptune Ketu) by being especially in the sixth, eighth, and the twelfth house in their birth chart, and current operating cycles is influenced by one of these planets are likely to experience instability caused due to sudden change in their activities and surroundings. Such experiences might turn out to be very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit to anything new during this one week 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 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.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (December 2- 9)
The time when Saturn-Uranus ninefold square occurs is unfavorable for those who have such square or opposition 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, the United States of America, Russia or China may experience a social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising between them.
Solar Eclipse (December 14)
A total solar eclipse occurs on December 14 around 9 AM to 2 PM (EST). It will be visible for North and South American continents, Alaska, Hawaii, Europe, Western Russia, Western part of Middle Eastern countries, and West part of Africa.
For those who are born with Sun or Moon or both in conjunction a lunar node are very likely to be negatively influenced by the solar eclipse on December 14. Plan on staying low key and extremely cautious about anything you do. The solar eclipse is usually more likely affect the region where it’s visible.
On collective level I would expect an outbreak of violence in the Middle East region, particularly Israel and Palestinian. Also, rulers of countries of North and South American continents, Europe, Middle East, and West Africa should take extra precaution against an unfortunate situation.
