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.
Pluto-Rahu ninefold conjunction (Pluto-Ketu opposition) (Jan 28 – Feb 4)
The Pluto-Rahu ninefold conjunction is usually not favorable for those who have such conjunction or squares in their birth charts. In addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Pluto 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 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 till this period is passed.
On a collective level, natural accidents and calamities are likely to occur all around the world.
Mars-Saturn quincunx (Feb 13-16)
Mars-Saturn quincunx can be responsible for a situation of a lot of tension and friction. For those who have such quincunx in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycles certainly need to be careful in dealing with the surroundings around them. Perhaps 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 real possibilities.
On the world scene, a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan is 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.
Rahu-Jupiter (and Ketu-Jupiter) square(s) (Feb 16 – 26)
Jupiter-Rahu (and Ketu) squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have such squares in their natal charts. Insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness, difficulty in keeping the faith in God are some of the symptoms of these squares. 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 to look at the things with a different attitude. The best thing to do is to stay the course of present action without making any new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure to yourself, and unhappy with family.. Well, that’s how you going to feel this time. Keep your faith strong!
On a collective level, religions around the world will find difficulty in carrying out their activities and in general, keeping people happy. Loss of a well known religious figurehead is likely.
Neptune-Saturn opposition (Feb 20 – Mar 9)
If you have a Neptune-Saturn square or opposition in your birth chart, and if your current planetary operating cycle is influenced by either of these planets then you are likely to experience a subtle but serious financial or social setback or an unpleasant secret will be revealed to you. If you are planning to take a long distance (overseas) trip during this period, be extra careful of nasty surprises, or even being stranded in places you never dream of.
On the collective level, covert activities will be on rise. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities are very likely. Places like Russia and China are likely to experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold trine (Feb 21-27)
Neptune-Rahu trine is going to be very auspicious and favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts. Expect monetary as well as power gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. The ideas that you always wanted to pursue but somehow could never get started….now is the time to follow that dream. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period. It’s time to jump in and enjoy this period.
On a collective level, religious activities all around the world are likely to expand with new vigor and energy, conservatives will have upper hand over the liberals, China and Russia are likely to see positive developments occurring in the social and economical fields.
