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.
Uranus-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (May 26 – June 3)
Uranus-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have such squares in their natal charts. Expect sudden loss of money, power, demotions at work place and/or tarnished reputation in professional and social fields. If you have such squares in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you need be very careful. The best thing to do is not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk. Remember the time when you felt financially very secured, happy with family, and suddenly the landscape turned against you and everything disappears. Well, if not exactly this way but something like this has a good potential to happen (again) …be careful!
On a collective level, United States and particularly the President Bush and his administration should take extra precaution in dealing with foreign matters. Terrorist activities are likely to accelerate in the Middle-East region (Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine).
Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (May 27 – June 3)
Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be devastating for those who have such squares in their natal charts. Anything that you attempt will be failed or result in agonizing and frustrating experience. This is not the time to take any risk. If you have such squares in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you need be extra careful. The best thing to do is not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk.
On a collective level, barbaric activities all around the world are likely to increase. Terrorists are likely to be successful in creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in Europe and Russia is likely. Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold conjunction (May 1 – June 8)
The Saturn-Uranus ninefold conjunction is not good for those who have such conjunction, 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 conjunction 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 social or political turmoil at home as well as buildup of tension among them.
Neptune-Jupiter sextile (June 6 – 13)
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 Neptune in their birth chart (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to enjoy a very positive experience 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 field.
Mars-Rahu opposition and Mars-Ketu conjunction (June 15 – 18)
During these four days Mars conjuncts Ketu and opposes Rahu. Typically, conjunctions and oppositions of Mars with lunar nodes are unfavorable and unfortunate. For those who have such oppositions or conjunctions in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle need be very careful about the matters indicated by the respective houses in their birth chart. Probably the best thing to do is to lay low key, not make any new commitment and avoid taking any sort of new risk.
On the world scene, during these four days both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader are likely.
Neptune-Mars opposition (June 20 – 23)
This short 4-day period may turn out to be a deadly one for those who have unfavorable placing of Mars with respect to Neptune in their natal charts. Expect subtle but very strong and negative forces working against you that surely would bring you misfortune. Stay low key and avoid taking any unwanted or unnecessary risk. For those who have well placed Neptune-Mars configurations in their birth charts would likely to be rewarded with fame and good times.
On a collective level, covert activities will be at their peak. China and Russia are likely to experience some very drastic changes in the political arena, and those changes will influence the psyche of those nations at a deeper level.
Mars-Uranus quincunx (June 17 – 21)
Watch-out for bad news during these 3-4 days! Sudden and undesirable happenings are likely to occur if you have such quincunx in your birth chart. It could be a sudden loss of money, unfortunate accident, or a bad news. Only thing I suppose you could do is be prepared and avoid taking any new risk during this period.
On a collective level, natural and man-made calamities are likely, especially in the United States of America.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold square (June 22 – 28)
If you have a Neptune-Saturn square in your birth chart, and if any one of these two planets influencing you now through your current progressive chart, then during this period you might want to consider postponing your plans of expansion or any new venture, and just stay in a defensive mode. This square has a tendency to ruin your plans in a very deceptive manner, and usually, there is very little you can do about it once the process begins.
On a collective level, countries like China and Russia may face some difficult time during this period.
