Wishing you a very happy and prosperous 2015
The year 2015 is going to be distinctly influenced by the Scorpio Saturn, exalted Jupiter, and of course by the modern planets Pluto, Neptune and Uranus. While worldwide spiritual growth will continue to expand the ongoing political and social crisis will remain unabated.
In January 2005, Pluto entered sidereal Sagittarius and marked the beginning of an accelerated process of spiritual growth. This spiritual expansion has been marked by globalization, with technological and social developments that have enabled humans to become more closely connected. However, the occurrences of the natural and man- made calamities especially during February-March (as explained later) and to lesser extent from June-October will highlight the year.
During 2015, all the modern planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) will continue to reside in spiritual (sidereal) zodiac signs: Pluto in Sagittarius, a fire and mutable sign ruled by Jupiter; Neptune in Aquarius, an air and fixed sign ruled by Saturn; and Uranus in Pisces, a water and mutable sign ruled by Jupiter (those who are born with (sidereal) Sagittarius, Aquarius or Pisces ascendant or Moon are likely to feel the intensity of the modern planets in a significant and transformational way). Because both Saturn and Jupiter are planets of spiritual forces (as they rule the last four signs of the zodiac), in 2015, our subtle spiritual human evolution will continue to be at a phenomenal speed. In fact, until July 14, 2015, the exalted Jupiter in the spiritual water sign Cancer will certainly become responsible for collective spiritual growth and the emergence of new ways of living in accordance with the spiritual growth.
This accelerated spiritual growth is likely to be accompanied with pain and suffering (Scorpio Saturn) as will be reflected in violence and terrorism in places like Afghanistan-Pakistan, North Africa, Iraq-Iran, and other regions of the Middle East. Simultaneously increased frequency of natural calamities that include extreme weather conditions, abnormal weather patterns, earthquakes of significant magnitude, wildfires, hurricanes, snow storms etc. are also very likely. Those who are born with the Scorpio ascendant or Moon are likely to experience difficult period filled with challenges; but the very same experience will likely to provide them with the the opportunity to transform their lives in a positive way (self-discovery).
Jupiter transits in Cancer until July 14, 2015. Since cancer is a cardinal and water sign, and Jupiter becomes exalted in Cancer, Jupiter’s collective influence will continue to boost the spiritual growth during the first half of the year. The United States (a Uranus country) will continue to provide the platform for this spiritual growth since Uranus resides in Pisces, a sign ruled by Jupiter. During the second half of 2015, Jupiter’s transit in sidereal Leo (a favorable sign for Jupiter since it is ruled by friendly Sun) will likely to become responsible for increased growth in righteousness and humanity related activities. Advances in technology and sciences will absolutely be phenomenal due to the favorable placement of the modern planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The major scientific and technological breakthroughs in fields of medicine, biotechnology, high technology and space science will therefore be remarkable.
The lunar nodes Rahu (the north node) and Ketu (the south node) will continue to be in sidereal Virgo and Pisces respectively. The influence of the lunar nodes will create challenges (Rahu opposing Uranus and Ketu nearing Uranus). As a result, additional effort will be necessary to begin and maintain new humanitarian projects. Those who have well placed lunar nodes in their charts and have either Cancer, Aries or Scorpio as their ninefold (navamansa) ascendant are likely to experience a very positive year.
During 2015, the ninefold squares of Pluto-Uranus and Uranus-Saturn, and the ninefold conjunction of Pluto-Saturn occur among the planets of action (Pluto, Uranus and Saturn), approximately during February 17 through March 30 period as shown in the chart below. These planetary configurations may lead to undesirable events, such as wars, uprisings, violence and revolutions. During the same period, the world’s financial markets will exhibit marked volatility.
Thus, the events of 2015 will continue to transform the world to the next new level, a necessary step as a part of our collective spiritual growth that began in 2005.
