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 (May 15 – September 13)
Jupiter became retrograde in sidereal Capricorn on May 15 and with its retrograde motion returns to Sagittarius on July 1, 2020. It remains retrograde in Sagittarius until September 13.
While in Capricorn, being a cardinal and earth sign ruled by Saturn, Jupiter in Capricorn (despite debilitated in Capricorn) has a tendency to enhance material prosperity. But during its retrograde period in Capricorn and given the Pluto’s presence in Capricorn, the rate of destruction of material wealth is likely to be more significant.
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 dominate and things are likely to move at much slower rate. The world economy may experience a slower growth.
Retrograde Saturn (May 11 – September 29)
Saturn became retrograde on May 11 in sidereal Capricorn, and is going to stay retrograde till September 29 in Capricorn. For those who have a well placed Saturn in their birth charts and if Saturn’s period is currently in operation, then they are likely to experience slow progress. Best way to deal with retrograde Saturn is to put more energy in to whatever you do to work towards your goal.
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.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (July 16 – Aug 2)
If you have a Neptune-Rahu quincunx (with either of these planets being especially in the sixth, eighth, or the twelfth house) in your birth chart, and if your Gochar (transit) chart is influenced by one of these planets, then you are likely to experience instability in your life caused due to sudden change in your routine activities and deceptive surroundings. Such experiences might turn out to be very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit to anything new and stay low key and be very watchful during this period.
On a collective level, social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out. 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.
Neptune-Jupiter sextile (July 19 – Aug 6)
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.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold square (July 21 – Aug 11)
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Neptune squares 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 ninefold square. Depending on the strength of these planets and houses they occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new challenge in that particular field signified by the house they occupy in your natal chart. Be ready to face this powerful and spontaneous challenge. 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 or loss, unexpected severe depression, etc.
At a collective level, the manifestation of Neptune-Uranus ninefold square 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.
Saturn-Rahu quincunx (July 25 – Sept 16)
The Saturn-Rahu quincunx is a challenging aspect for those who have such quincunx in their birth charts. In addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting you via your Gochar (transit) chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in areas affected by these planets as indicated in your natal chart. Such people should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such quincunx can make things so miserable and difficult for you that you are never going to forget them in your life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin until this period is passed.
On a collective level, Russia or China may experience social or political unrest. Also, in the United State for the Republican Party and republicans including for the republican president, it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.
Neptune-Ketu ninefold trine (Neptune-Rahu ninefold sextile) (July 27 – Aug 18)
For those who have well placed Neptune, and if she is in trine with any of the two lunar nodes, and are presently being influenced by any of these planets (Neptune, Rahu, or Ketu) through their current operating cycles, are likely to experience a very positive period. Rise in self confidence, feeling empowered, strong intuitive power, and in general feeling great about everything around are some of the symptoms that you are likely to enjoy.
Collectively on global scene, this period is very positive for Russia and China. Also, most of the technological areas are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy and create a very healthy atmosphere around us.
Pluto-Ketu ninefold trine (and Pluto-Rahu sextile) (Aug 1-19)
If through your current progressive (Gochar) chart influence of either Pluto or lunar node is active and if Pluto is favorably positioned with respect to lunar nodes in your natal chart then expect very favorable time. Such positive events will be related to the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspect. For example, if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in relationship area, or business partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involved it may financially prove to be a very rewarding period.
On a collective level, this is a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold quincunx (Aug 4-12)
When Saturn-Uranus ninefold quincunx occurs, it is not good for you if you have such quincunx or square in your birth chart. 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. You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such quincunx can make things very miserable and difficult for you. 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 tensions rising among them.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine (Aug 6-22)
If you have a well placed Neptune in your birth chart and is in trine with Saturn, and if you are presently being influenced by any of these planets (Neptune or Saturn) through their current operating cycles, then you are likely to experience a very positive period in the areas signified by the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart. Strong intuitive power, very positive environment, and in general, feeling great about yourself and everything around you are some of the symptoms that you are likely to enjoy.
Collectively on a global scene, this period is very positive for Russia and China. In addition, most of the technological areas, especially in medical field, are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.
Pluto-Mars Square (Aug 11-15)
This square may cause great turmoil in lives of individuals who have Pluto-Mars square in their natal charts. Depending on the positions of these planets the matters related to the respective houses are likely to be affected. The severity of the manifestation would be proportional to the strength of this square in the natal chart. The sudden or drastic change in profession or at work place are common manifestations of this square.
On collective level or on world scene, natural and man-made calamities can not be ruled out.
Mars-Saturn square (Aug 21-28)
Mars-Saturn square, for no apparent reason, changes a perfectly normal and healthy situation in to the one with a lot of tension and friction with new challenges. For those who have such square in the birth charts, and if any one of these planets are influencing them through the current progressive cycles certainly need to be on guard. 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 real possibilities.
On the world scene, a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan is very likely. Terrorism and violence around the world, especially in Iraq and Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an undesirable happening, and occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities are strong possibilities.
