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.
Partial Solar Eclipse (September 11)
A partial solar eclipse occurs on September 11, approximately during the hours of 11:00 to 13:45 GMT. It will be visible in Europe, Middle East, South East Asia, Africa, South America, and the east coast of the North American continent.
This eclipse is not so important since the Sun and Moon will be about 11 degrees away from Ketu, and therefore will last for a very short time. The eclipse will occur with the Southern or descending node Ketu, in the sidereal zodiac sign Leo and the ascending node Rahu in Aquarius.
For those who have in their natal charts the lunar nodes in conjunction with either Sun or Moon should watch-out. It’s not a good day! Take extra precaution and avoid any sort of outdoor activity requiring you to get out of house.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (Aug 19 – Sept 11)
If you have Neptune-Rahu quincunx (with either of these planets being especially in the sixth, eighth, or the twelfth house in their 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 change 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.
Uranus-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (Aug 1 – Sept 5)
Uranus-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have such squares in their natal charts. Expect sudden loss of money, power, demotions at work place and/or tarnished reputation in professional and social fields. 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 be very careful. The best thing to do is not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk. Remember the time when you felt financially very secured, happy with family, and suddenly the landscape turned against you and everything disappears. Well, if not exactly this way but something like this has a good potential to happen (again) …be careful!
On a collective level, United States and particularly the President Bush and his administration should take extra precaution in dealing with foreign matters. Terrorist activities are very likely to occur in the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Israel and Palestine).
Mars-Pluto Opposition (September 19-23)
This five 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 very possible.
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 perid would be the Iraq, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel, and the United States.
Mars-Uranus Square (September 2-5)
This four day period is going to witness Mars-Uranus square. 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, expect some sudden outbreak of an undesirable happening, and strong possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities. The countries that are most likely to be affected during these four days would be the United States of America, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold trine (September 1 – October 3)
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 as well as monetary gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. The ideas that you always wanted to pursue non-material goals 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 remarkable and a very successful month.
Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine (September 19-24)
At a collective level, the Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine is positive in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia and to some extent for China. Also, on technological front, expect some positive breakthroughs in high technology and biotechnology fields.
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Pluto is in sextile with Neptune or Pluto-Neptune form a ninefold trine, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are very likely to be positively affected by this trine. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a positive experience in that particular field. Enjoy this experience!
Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu ninefold squares (Sept 4 – 15)
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 Palestinians, as well as outbreak of terrorism around the world during these days are real possibilities.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold conjunction (September 12 – 25)
At a collective level, the Pluto-Uranus ninefold conjunction could bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Bush administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Therefore it’s likely that the Bush administration could get tangled with some new serious issues.
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Pluto makes a square 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 square. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and a totally new and a very unpleasant experience in that particular field. Be ready to face this unwanted experience. Stay alert and try not to start a new venture that requires taking a risk. It’s like you are on a business trip or company assignment and you are immediately called off or caught in a situation that you find very difficult if not impossible to get out.
