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 trine (and Pluto-Ketu sextile) (June 16 – July 9)
If through your current progressive 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 expect a 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.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold opposition (June 22 – July 7)
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.
Pluto-Jupiter Trine (July 1-11)
This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This auspicious trine could become responsible for a unique transformation in the field of religion as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms.
In your birth chart if Jupiter and Pluto are either in conjunction or trine or sextile, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are perhaps standing on the thresh-hold of a new era that’s about to begin in your life. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new and a very different experience in that particular field. Be ready to accept this new settings with new challenges as well as the rewards that come with them.
On a collective level, religious and academic and to some extent social fields are very likely to see changes coming in their respective fields. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic, but the majority of us are going to embrace this new wave of change and are very likely to enjoy it.
Mars-Saturn square (July 4-6)
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 likely. Terrorism and violence around the world, especially in Afghanistan, North Africa, Syria 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.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold trine (July 6-19)
This is a very good period for those who have Uranus-Saturn trine in their natal charts, and one of these two planets are operating though the current cycle. Depending on the houses involved expect some real positive development in your life.
On a collective level, this is a good period for religious activities all around the world. Also, this is a great time for the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and domestically.
Mars-Rahu opposition (July 20-21)
During this period Mars quincunxes Rahu. Typically Mar’s opposition with a lunar node is very unfavorable and unfortunate situation in general. If you have such quincunx or opposition in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these planets influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you need be very careful about the matters indicated by the respective houses in your birth chart. Probably the best thing to do is to lay low key, not make any new commitment and avoid taking any sort of new risk.
On the world scene, during this period both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader are likely.
Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (July 18-23)
Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be devastating for those who have such squares in their natal charts.

Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx (July 24 – Aug 12)
If in your birth chart Uranus is in the direct quincunx with the lunar node Rahu, and if any one of these two planets are influencing you now via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in your professional and financial areas during this period and be prepared for unwanted surprises and obstacles. This quincunx can become dangerous, and ruin your plans and bring about the unexpected disaster in every which way. In short, during this period you have been tested.
