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.
Mars-Pluto Opposition (March 3-10)
This seven to eight day period is likely to be very frustrating for those who have Mars-Pluto opposition, conjunction or square in their natal charts. Typically this opposition is very unfavorable. Unexpected problems are likely to occur with astonishing speed and without any notice. For those who have such opposition or conjunction in their birth chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle need to be on guard. Stay very 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 involving explosive material are likely.
On the world scene, expect some sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening, possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities. The countries that are most likely to be affected during this period would be the Iraq, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel, and the United States.
Pluto-Jupiter ninefold quincunx (March 12-15)
This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This quincunx could become responsible for a unique stalemate in the field of religion as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power to oppose and eventually transform 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 quincunx or opposition, 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 occurring in their respective fields.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx (March 19-24)
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. If you have very strong and positively placed lunar nodes and Uranus in your birth chart, then perhaps you need not worry.
On a collective level, the United States and in particular, the Republic Party and republicans including the republican president Bush are likely to run into some very difficult period. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold square (March 19-25)
If you have a Neptune-Saturn square in your birth chart, and if any one of these two planets influencing you now through your current progressive chart, then during this period you might want to consider postponing your plans of expansion or any new venture, and just stay in a defensive mode. This square has a tendency to ruin your plans in a very deceptive manner, and usually, there is very little you can do about it once the process begins.
On a collective level, countries like China and Russia may face some difficult time during this period.
Uranus-Jupiter sextile (March 16 – June 2)
This auspicious sextile is good for all world religions as well as for people who are engaged in activities that help us expand morally, socially as well as materially.
For those who have well placed Jupiter and Uranus in their birth chart (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to experience very positive time during this period. People involved in the religious activities are likely experience a sudden boost in their daily activities, and religious authorities are going to be well recognized by societies.
On a collective level, religious, academic, and social fields are very likely to enjoy the new and positive changes occurring in their respective field.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold trine (March 25 – April 18)
Uranus-Neptune trine 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.
