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.
Retrograde Jupiter (Nov 3 – Feb 10)
On November 3, the planet Jupiter becomes retrograde in its motion and will appear moving backward in the sky. It will stay retrograde until February 10 in the sidereal zodiac Gemini. For those who have a well placed Jupiter in their birth charts and if Jupiter’s period is currently in operation, such people are likely to feel the deceleration in their progress. Remember it’s only temporary! Need to put more energy in to whatever you do to achieve what you need to achieve.
On the world scene, particularly in religious world, “confusion” will take the center stage and things are likely to move at frustratingly slow rate. The world economy will likely to experience a lot slower growth.
Retrograde Saturn (September 27 – February 3)
Saturn will continue to be retrograde during November. For those who have a well placed Saturn in their birth charts and if Saturn’s period is currently in operation, such people are likely to feel the deceleration in their progress. Remember it’s only temporary! Need to put more energy in to whatever you do to achieve what you need to achieve.
On the world scene, generally, the projects that deal with expansion are likely to either stay on hold or experience sluggish progress. In religious world, things are likely to move at frustratingly slow rate. In the political arena what may seem like progress will turn out to be a disaster.
Neptune-Mars conjunction (Nov 4 – Nov 7)
This short 3-day period may turn out to be deadly for those who have unfavorable placing of Mars with respect to Neptune in their natal charts. Expect subtle but very strong and negative forces working against you that surely would bring you misfortune. Stay low key and avoid taking any unwanted or unnecessary risk. For those who have well placed Neptune-Mars configurations in their birth charts would likely to be rewarded with fame and good times.
On a collective level, covert activities will be at their peak. China and Russia are likely to experience some very drastic changes in the political arena which will influence the psyche of those nation at a deeper level.
Uranus-Mars conjunction (Nov 25 – Nov 28)
This 3-day period will prove to be a period of very intense negative experience for those who have unfavorable placing of Mars with respect to Uranus in their natal charts. Expect sudden and devastating change that will test your being. Be prepared for a total change of surroundings around you and possibly experiencing a hostile atmosphere around you. Be cautious and on guard since the possibilities are limitless. For those who have well placed Uranus-Mars configurations in their birth charts would likely to be victorious and successful in whatever the business they are in.
On a collective level, a possibility of sudden outbreak of new a conflict affecting the United States of America can not be ruled out. Or it could be a man-made intentional accident (not as bad as September 11) or a mishandling incident by the government.
Pluto-Saturn opposition (with one degree orb: October 21-November 12) and
Pluto-Saturn ninefold opposition (October 28 – November 4)
Pluto-Saturn direct opposition occurs on average about once every 35-36 years, although the year it occurs, it may occur at 2-3 separate occasions due to retrograde motion of these planets. For those who have conjunction, square, or opposition of Pluto and Saturn in their horoscopes, and for those whose current planetary operating cycle is influenced by either of these planets are likely to experience a severe setback or turmoil in their lives. Such opposition can become a very strong force to destroy the current setting of your lifestyle and transform it to a totally new setting which may or may not be desirable depending on the strength and positive influence of these planets in the natal chart. In any event it’s going to be an irreversible situation.
On the collective level, expect the outbreak of violence and terrorist activities, natural as well as man-made calamities, and to some extent, war-like climate in some parts of the world. Tension between Israelis and Palestinians is likely to escalate again at a new level. A few eastern European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold sextile (Nov 9 – Nov 19)
Neptune-Saturn ninefold sextile is going to be favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts. Expect a positive period that could include promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. Also, a subtle shift in your attitude towards looking at the things would change for better, and thus help you understand your role. You will distinctly notice and feel positive about yourself and possibly far more relax and content.
On a collective level, religious activities all around the world are likely to expand with new vigor and energy, conservatives will find ways to expand their agenda without compromising with liberals on sticky issues. Republicans will have upper hand over democrats. China and Russia are likely to experience a positive and rewarding period in handling their domestic issues as well as improving the foreign relations through better policies.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold trine (Nov 11 – Dec 9)
Uranus-Pluto trine is going to be very favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts. 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.
On a collective level, due to a positive involvement of USA as a broker in providing a meaningful solution to Israel and Palestinian on their ongoing conflict, expect some decreased friction between those two countries. Also, United States is very likely to be successful in tracking down and possibly capturing the main figures that were responsible for the terrorist activities. In general, this is a very good period for the United States as well for those who deal with technological research. Expect some new important technological breakthrough during these 30 days.
