The important challenging planetary configurations for March include Uranus-Rahu/Ketu (Feb 17 – Mar 6) and Mars-Rahu/Ketu (Mar 28-29) squares; Pluto-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares; Neptune-Rahu ninefold (March 1-8) opposition and Jupiter-Saturn (March 25-30) opposition
And the auspicious planetary configurations for this month are: Neptune-Rahu (Feb 21 – Mar 14) sextile and Saturn-Rahu ninefold (March 11- April 10) sextile; Neptune-Saturn (Mar 6-11) and Uranus-Rahu (March 27 – April 1) ninefold trines.
The Uranus-Rahu and Uranus-Ketu squares have a potential to manifest themselves as terror attacks either on the US soil or on Americans abroad or social unrest or protest in USA. The natural as well as man-made calamities will be on rise during the first half of the month all around the world. The world financial markets will exhibit extreme volatility during the same period. In addition, Mars-Rahu/Ketu squares can be devastating in creating havoc in Middle East and to some extent in Europe.
The Pluto-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares will likely to become the cause for accelerating the uprising in Middle-East countries as well as for the natural and man-made calamities. The Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition may become responsible for covert activities in Europe, China and Russia. In addition, this opposition is certainly not favorable for the dictatorial rulers in Middle-East. The Jupiter-Saturn opposition indicates the climatic situation in Middle-East with the final outcome titling towards protesters. The world financial markets, especially the oil markets will remain under tremendous volatile conditions.
During the most part of March, the auspicious ninefold trines and sextiles will be responsible for scientific advances and technological breakthrough in areas of biotechnology, medicine, high tech and communication sciences.
The countries that are most likely to be affected during this month will be: Middle-East (Libya, Egypt, Saudi-Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Palestine and Israel), USA, and to some extent Europe.
- United States of America:
President Obama and his administration:
President Obama’s operating planet Neptune will continue to oppose his natal lunar node Rahu until March 15 or so, and therefore, he will continue to have to deal with people of deception and separate the deception from reality both internationally and domestically. At the same time, his progressive Jupiter, being in the 8th (11th from the tenth) house of his progressive chart, will continue to help him in successfully govern the country. However, he will have to be careful in dealing with international matters and foreign dignitaries. During the first half of the month, he is likely to be challenged with a serious and intense national security crisis situation, perhaps related to terrorism. It will take all of his leadership to deal with it. Mars in the 7th house of his progressive chart may become responsible for turbulent political environment around him, and he may find himself increasingly difficult to deal with it. Towards the end of the month, he may regain his confidence as far as governing the country is concerned.
The influence of the Uranus-Rahu/Ketu square will be predominantly reflected in national security related crisis or social unrest through protesting, or a terrorist act during the first and the last week of the month. Also, during the same period occurrence of a natural or man-made calamity is likely. During the first and the last week of the month, the homeland security is likely to become busier than normal, and national security will be on alert. However, the country will remain safe.
· Russia: The first half of the month is positive for Russia, and it will be reflected in economic growth and political stability. The last week of the month may pose challenges with respect to social unrest or natural or man-made calamity. The relation between Europe and Russia will be further enhanced. The business and trading relations between the USA and the Russia will be improved.
· Europe: The relationship between the USA and European Union may become sour during the first week of the month. During the last week of the month natural or man-made calamities are likely. The middle two weeks of the month are positive for the continent from economical progress standpoint. The threat of a terrorist attack will remain high during the last week of the month. During the same week of the month religious leaders are likely to come under pressure including the Vatican.
· China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: The first half of the month is positive for China from economical progress and political stability standpoint. The social and economical atmosphere may become chaotic during the last week of the month. Also, during the same period the government is likely to make some significant changes in its cabinet to meet the growing economical and social challenges of the time. The financial markets for Japan, Korea and other pacific-rim-countries will continue to enjoy the growth.
· Middle East: The social unrest that began since the beginning of the year will continue to spread across the region, especially during the first and the last week of the month. The social transformation of the Middle-East that began with subtle changes since the Uranus entered the sidereal Pisces in March 2009 will continue unabated for the next five to ten years until the entire region become truly democratic. The Uranus-Rahu and Uranus-Ketu squares will become responsible for violence, terror attacks and social unrest during the first week of the month. The religious leaders and/or fanatics are likely to face challenges from with in their organizations and will have tough time carrying out their agendas.
· Religion: The influence of the Saturn-Jupiter opposition will be responsible for new crisis during the last week of the month for the religious leaders. Unless they adjust to the modern wave of transformation of religious norms they are likely to become frustrated in dealing with people.
· Natural and Man-made Calamities: The natural calamities like extreme weather conditions, wildfires, hurricanes, heavy rains, air crashes as well as man made accidents are more likely to occur on March 1-6 and 25-30.
Earthquakes: Based on the new earthquake prediction model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on March 1, 3, 5, 8, 21-24 and 29-30.
While man-made calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest, violence, accidents, and air crashes, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally intensive droughts, hurricanes or typhoons, thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires.
