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-Jupiter ninefold trine (June 15 – July 20)
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.
Rahu-Jupiter ninefold quincunx (July 6-17)
Jupiter-Rahu ninefold quincunx is going to be unfavorable for those who have such quincunx 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 quincunx in your birth chart, and if any one of these two 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.
Mars-Rahu opposition and Mars-Ketu conjunction (July 12-22)
During these eleven days Mars conjuncts Ketu and opposes Rahu. Typically Mar’s conjunction and opposition with lunar nodes are very unfavorable and unfortunate. For those who have such oppositions or conjunctions in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle need be very careful about the matters indicated by the respective houses in their birth charts. 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 these few days both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader are likely.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition and Neptune-Ketu ninefold conjunction (July 13-30)
For those, who have poor placement of Neptune and Rahu (or Neptune and Ketu) by being especially in the sixth, eighth, and the twelfth house of their birth chart and current operating cycles are influenced by at least one of these planets, are likely to experience instability in their daily routine caused due to sudden change in their activities and surroundings. Such experiences might turn out to be very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit to anything new during this 18 day period and stay low key.
On the collective level, social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out. Eastern Europeans are also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration. 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. And the Republican party in USA is likely to experience more political challenges than normal.
Pluto-Neptune ninefold quincunx (July 13 – Aug 18)
For those who have quincunx, square, or opposition of Pluto and Neptune in their birth charts, and for those whose current planetary operating cycle is influenced by either of these planets are likely to experience a subtle setback due to deceptive surroundings around you. Such quincunx can become a very strong force in creative an illusion and as a result confusion around and with in you. It can become very difficult to stay cool, and there’s not a whole lot you can do about it except by not venturing into anything new and bear with the current situation with a grin.
On a collective level, expect another outbreak of violence and terrorist activities in Middle east, especially in Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine region. Also, the occurrences of natural as well as man-made calamities are more likely. Some of the east-European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold trine (Uranus-Ketu ninefold sextile) (July 23 Aug 2)
Uranus-Rahu 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.
Saturn-Jupiter ninefold square (July 25-30)
Jupiter-Saturn ninefold square is going to be unfavorable for those who have such square in their natal charts. Loss of motivation, insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness, difficulty in keeping the faith in God are some of the symptoms of this square. This is like a test period. A period that can be viewed a real positive from self discovery standpoint since it will require you to bring best out of you to deal with situations around you. If you have such a square in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through your 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 new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure of 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, more controversies that test traditional moral values are likely to occur, and in general, religious authorities will have difficulty in keeping people happy.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold sextile (July 25 – Aug 25)
Uranus-Neptune ninefold sextile is going to be very favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts. Expect some sort of spiritual awakening, monetary gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. The idea that you always wanted to pursue a non-material goal 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 spiritual period.
On a collective level, this is an extraordinary time for collective spiritual growth, technological discoveries and inventions. Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this month. For the United States, in general, it’s going to be a remarkable and very successful period.
Mars-Uranus Square (July 28 – Aug 4)
Typically this square offers very unfavorable results with astonishing speed and without any notice. For those who have such square in their birth chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle need be extra careful. The best thing to do is to lay low key, not make any new commitment, and avoid taking any sort of risk. Also, experiences like a sudden incident of fire, or an accident, or missing or drowning of a child are the doings of this square.
On the world scene, possibility of some sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening and strong possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities are likely.
Uranus-Saturn trine (July 31 – Sept 21)
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.
