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.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx (Nov 18, 2006 – Jan 31, 2007)
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Neptune quincunxes 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 quincunx.. 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 a very undesirable experience in that particular field. Be prepare to face this powerful and painful experience. Some of the likely scenarios are unexpected loss of money or job, demotion, business downturn, meeting a person who is likely to cause you lot of anguish in your life, and perhaps unexpected severe depression.
At a collective level, the manifestation of Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx will reflect in sudden change in relationship between USA and Russia (and countries of former Soviet Union) for worse. Advances in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries are likely to slow down.
Uranus-Ketu ninefold trine (Uranus-Rahu ninefold sextile) (Jan 13 – 19)
Uranus-Ketu trine is going to be very favorable for those who have lunar nodes favorably placed in their natal charts with respect to Uranus. If such placing is connected to the first house, second house, ninth house, tenth house, or eleventh house then 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.
Mars-Rahu, and Mars-Ketu Squares (Jan 1 – 3)
For the first three days in January Mars makes squares to each of the lunar nodes. Typically these squares are very unfavorable and unfortunate in general. For those who have these squares 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 three days.
Neptune-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (Jan 15 – 22)
Neptune-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have such squares in their natal charts. Expect sudden loss of money, power, demotions at work place and/or tarnished reputation in professional and social fields. 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 be extra careful. The best thing to do is not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk. Remember you never suspected a closed friend, and you suddenly find out that he or she secretly doing things behind your back to hurt you….well something similar is likely to happen….be careful!
On a collective level, secret activities all around the world are likely to accelerate including political covert activities. Social confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China is a good possibility.
Mars-Pluto Conjunction (Jan 11 – 14)
These five days in January are going to witness Mars-Pluto conjunction. Typically this conjunction offers very sudden and extremely undesirable result with astonishing speed. For those who have such conjunction in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle need be extra careful. These are perhaps the worst five days of the year. Avoid making any new commitment and taking any new risk.

On the world scene, escalation of terrorism and violence, especially in Israel-Palestine area is very likely. Also, sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening, and strong possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities are likely. The countries that are most likely to be affected during these five days would be the Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Jan 26-30)
The Saturn-Uranus ninefold conjunction is not good for those who have such conjunction or square in their birth charts.

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.
