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.
Neptune-Jupiter conjunction (May 14 – July 23)
Both Jupiter and Neptune are considered as auspicious planets. While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Neptune’s influence on us is very abstract and subtle. Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurs once (actually 2-3 times with in a year’s period due to their retrograde motions) in about 13-14 years. 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 are certainly going to experience a transformation (irreversible change) of their beliefs and moral values that they have been attached to. It’s time for marching ahead with a quantum step in the process of self discovery (or evolution). Embrace this period with total openness and vulnerability. It’s the time of rejuvenation with a positive force in your life. Enjoy!
On the world scene, world religions are likely to be challenged with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. Those religious leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our religious world to a new level. Others are going to fade away with time.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (May 22 – June 3)
If you have a Neptune-Rahu quincunx (with either of these planets being especially in the sixth, eighth, or the twelfth house in your birth chart) and if your current operating cycle is influenced by one of these planets, then you are likely to experience instability in your life caused due to sudden changes in your routine 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 and stay low key during this period.
On the collective level, social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out. Eastern European countries 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.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold square (May 28 – June 25)
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Neptune squares 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 challenging configuration.. 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 unique experience in that particular field. Be ready to embrace this powerful, challenging and spontaneous experience. Some of the likely scenarios are unexpected move (change of residence), unexpected job change (or change of surrounding at work place), meeting a person who is going to influence your life in a very dramatic fashion, unexpected financial windfall, unexpected severe depression, finding your center that you were always wanting to, etc.
At a collective level, the manifestation of Neptune-Uranus ninefold square will reflect in sudden change (either positive and negative) in relationship between USA and Russia (and countries of former Soviet Union), magnificent advances in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries.
Mars-Rahu, and Mars-Ketu Squares (June 2 – 4)
During these three days, 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 charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle, they 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, both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives during these three days are likely.
Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu ninefold squares (June 4 – 27)
The ninefold squares of Pluto with the lunar nodes are generally have tendencies to destroy the present setting of life and transform it in to a totally new one. Those who have better placed lunar nodes and their connections with Pluto, are likely to adapt well to this new change and move to their next level of evolution, while others are likely to struggle and may find the change unbearable. Perhaps the best way to deal with this situation is to stay alert and be extremely cautious in dealing with your surroundings that affect you. Avoid taking any new risk during this period. And probably be prepared for situations that are going to get worse before they get better with new direction in life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you wanted to begin till this period is passed.
On a collective level, a new wave of renewed violence in Iraq, Israel and Palestine, as well as outbreak of terrorism around the world during these days are real possibilities.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (June 27 – July 7)
Saturn-Uranus ninefold square is unfavorable for you if you have such a square or opposition in your birth chart. 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. You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such square or opposition can make things so miserable and difficult for you that most likely you are not going to forget them in your entire 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, the United States of America, Russia or China may experience a social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising between them.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold conjunction (June 22 – 29)
If you have a Neptune-Saturn 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 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. 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.
Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx (June 11 – 17)
The Saturn-Rahu quincunx is not good for you if you have such quincunx in your birth chart. In addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting you via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in areas affected by these planets as indicated by your natal chart. You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period. Such quincunx 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, Russia or China may experience social or political unrest. Also, in the United State for the Republic Party and republicans it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.
