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-Mars Square (June 1 -4)
These four days in June may cause great turmoil in lives of individuals who have Pluto-Mars square in their natal charts. Depending on their positions 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 their natal chart. The sudden or drastic change in profession or work places are common results.
On collective level or on world scene some sort of natural calamities or even made made calamities can not be ruled out.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx (May 26 – Sept 12)
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Neptune is in quincunx with 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 unique configuration.. Depending on the strength of these planets and houses they occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and totally new and a very unique experience in that particular field. Be ready to embrace this powerful and spontaneous experience. Some of the likely scenarios are unexpected move (change of residence), unexpected job change (or change of surrounding at work place), unexpected severe depression, and frustration.
At a collective level, the manifestation of Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx will reflect in sudden change (negative) in relationship between USA and Russia (and countries of former Soviet Union).
Uranus-Saturn ninefold quincunx (June 23 -27)
The time when Saturn-Uranus ninefold quincunx occurs is not good for those who have such quincunx or square in their birth charts. 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. Such people 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; also, political tension may rise among these countries
Pluto-Saturn ninefold trine (June 15 – 19)
If through your current progressive chart influence of either Pluto or Saturn is active and if Pluto is favorably positioned with respect to Saturn in your natal chart expect a very favorable time during these four days. Such positive events will be related to the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspects. For example if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in a relationship, or business partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involve, financially you are likely to do lot better.
On a collective level, this is a good period for European and Russian economy.
Rahu-Jupiter (and Ketu-Jupiter) ninefold square(s) (June 17 – 23)
Jupiter-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold 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 ninefold conjunction (June 23-26)
If you have either a Neptune-Saturn square, conjunction, 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 secrete will be revealed to you. If you are planning to take long distance (overseas) trips during this period, be extra careful of nasty surprises, or even being stranded in places you never dreamt 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’s temporary return to the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio (May 28 – Nov 28)
One of the important planetary events of this year is the transit of the modern planet Pluto from the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio to Sagittarius. It first occurs on January 28. Pluto stays in Sagittarius till May 28, and then with its retrograde motion returns to Scorpio and stays in Scorpio till November 28. After November 28, 2005 it will remain in Sagittarius for the following 14 to15 years (till February 2020). Although it’s going to be in Sagittarius for only about 4 months before it returns to Scorpio, Pluto being the planet of transformation will certainly affect the matters related to Sagittarius in a big way. The drastic changes in our collective moral and religious perceptions are certainly going to be manifested in the way we never experienced before by Pluto’s transit in Sagittarius. This era (next 15 years) will be remembered as the period of religious revolution. The way we have been used to deal with religions will no longer be our norms. Although it’s very likely that some of the world religions will either become obsolete or transformed into other forms the religious or moral codes will be greatly influenced by our collective spiritual experiences. And in that sense a subtle but most effective transformation of world religions during this unique era of 15 years is likely to take us to a level where the norms solely based on spiritual experiences will dictate and guide our lives with new level of understanding.
During its temporary return to Scorpio (May 28 – Nov 28) the natural as well as man-made disasters will be on rise, the Palestine-Israel region will lot more of violence and terrorism. The insurgency in Iraq will escalate, and in general, the world becomes more anxiety-stricken.
On individual level for those who have Scorpio ninefold ascendant should become careful and prepare for a period of a potential turmoil, especially if Pluto is a dominant planet in your birth charts.
