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-Uranus ninefold opposition (Oct 29 – Jan 25)
If in your birth chart Neptune opposes or conjuncts Uranus, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are very likely to be affected by this unique configuration. Depending on the strength of these planets and houses they occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and a totally new and very unique experience in that particular field. Be ready to embrace this powerful and spontaneous experience. Some of the likely scenarios are unexpected move (change of residence), unexpected job change (or change of surrounding at work place), meeting a person who is going to influence your life in a very dramatic fashion, unexpected financial windfall, unexpected severe depression, finding your center that you were always wanting to, etc.
At a collective level, the manifestation of Neptune-Uranus ninefold opposition will reflect in sudden change (either positive and negative) in relationship between USA and Russia (and countries of former Soviet Union) and magnificent advances in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries.
Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu ninefold squares (November 9-16)
The squares of Pluto with the lunar nodes are generally have tendencies to destroy the present setting of life and transform it into a totally new one. While those who have better placed lunar nodes and their connection with Pluto are likely to adapt well to this new change and move to their next level of evolution others are likely struggle and may find the change unbearable. Perhaps the best way to deal with this situation is to stay alert and extremely cautious in dealing with your surroundings that affect you. Avoid taking any new risk during this period. And probably be prepared for situations that are going to get worse before they get better with new direction in 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, a new wave of renewed violence between Israel and Palestinians, as well as outbreak of terrorism around the world during these eight days are real possibilities.
Mars-Saturn square (November 5-8)
Mars-Saturn square, for no apparent reason, changes a perfectly normal and healthy situation into the one with a lot of tension and friction. For those who have such square in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycles certainly need to be on guard. Simply lay back and do nothing. If you must involve in an unwanted situation, be extra careful and try to minimize the damage. Experiences like fire burns, rape, accidents, loss of precious things, and monetary disasters are likely.
On the world scene, a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan is very likely. Terrorism and violence, especially in Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities are real possibilities.
Mars-Rahu opposition and Mars-Ketu conjunction (November 10-14)
For these four days in November Mars opposes Rahu and conjuncts Ketu. Typically such oppositions and conjunctions are very unfavorable and unfortunate in general. For those who have such combinations in their birth chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle 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, expect some both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives during these four days in November.
Saturn-Rahu ninefold sextile (and Saturn-Ketu ninefold trine) (Nov 11 – Dec 31)
If through your current progressive chart influence of either Saturn or lunar node is active and if Saturn 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 aspects. For example if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in a relationship, or business partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involved November and December may financially prove to be rewarding months.
On a collective level, this is a good period for European economy. It is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
