And the auspicious planetary configurations for this month are: Saturn-Rahu ninefold sextile (Feb 1-16) and Rahu-Mars (Feb 20-22) and Neptune-Rahu (Feb 21 – Mar 14) sextiles.
The Neptune-Uranus ninefold square will be challenging for the relationship between USA and Russia as well as that between USA and China from the international politics standpoint. But more importantly, the Uranus-Rahu and Uranus-Ketu squares have a potential to manifest themselves as terror attacks either on the US soil or on Americans abroad. The natural as well as man-made calamities will be on rise during the second half of the month all around the world. The world financial markets will exhibit extreme volatility during the same period.
The Pluto-Jupiter square will likely to bring about an irreversible change in the world of religions and spirituality as the religious leaders will be forced to reflect on the existing norms and look for the ways to modify them to meet the needs of the time.
During the most part of February, the auspicious ninefold trines and sextiles will be responsible for scientific advances and technological breakthrough in areas of biotechnology, medicine, high tech and communication sciences. Also, the world economic growth will be reflected in rising financial markets.
The countries that are most likely to be affected during this month will be: USA, Russia, China and Middle-East (Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel and of course Egypt).
- United States of America:
President Obama and his administration:
President Obama’s operating planet Neptune continues to oppose his natal lunar node Rahu, therefore, requiring him to deal with people of deception and separate the deception from reality. At the same time, his progressive Jupiter, being in the 8th (11th from the tenth) house of his progressive chart, will continue to help him in successfully govern the country. Being a tactful leader, he will be careful and successfully deal with international matters and foreign dignitaries. During the second half of the month, he is likely to be challenged with a serious and intense national security crisis situation, and as a result, he will be tested to deal with it. It will take all of his leadership and political credit to deal with it.
The influence of the Uranus-Neptune ninefold square will be reflected in rise in covert activities but more importantly, the influence of Uranus-Rahu and Uranus-Ketu squares will certainly leave their marks on events like possible terror plots against the United States on the US soil or attack on Americans abroad or a huge natural calamity. The homeland security again this month is likely to become busier than normal, and national security will be on alert. However, the country is likely to remain safe.
· Russia: During the first half of the month, political dealings with the United States is likely to be difficult as the mutual disagreement over security concerns as well as political differences between the leaders will take the front seat. Covert activities in Russia will be on rise during the same time. Also, the man-made as well natural calamities are likely to occur during the same period. The Neptune-Rahu ninefold sextile, however, will be positive for Russia during the second half of the month, and it will reflected in country’s economical growth and political stability.

The financial markets for Japan, Korea and other pacific-rim-countries will grow. The second half of the month is positive for China as the political, social and economical climate will return to normal.
