One of the most important planetary configurations for March is the Pluto-Mars opposition (March 3-10). This deadly opposition may become responsible for a sudden outbreak of a severe global economical or political crisis and for a strong possibility of severe natural and man-made calamities.
Other significant planetary configurations for March are: Uranus-Jupiter ninefold opposition (March 24 – April 3), Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx (March 19-24), Neptune-Uranus ninefold trine (March 25 – April 18), Neptune-Saturn ninefold square (March 19-25), Mars-Saturn regular and Uranus-Jupiter ninefold sextiles.
The Neptune-Saturn ninefold square will likely to become responsible for the increased friction between the United States and Russia as well as with China. The covert activities will be on rise and the media across the globe will be very busy in reporting the news with lot of spin (deception). Natural and Man-made calamities during this period (March 19-25) are also likely.
On a positive note, Neptune-Uranus ninefold trine that begins on March 25 and runs through April 18, and Uranus-Jupiter sextile (March 16 – June 2) will provide for the political stability around the world. The positive influence of the trine and sextile will also be reflected in world economic growth and advances in technology and science.
The countries that are most likely to be affected during this period would be: Iraq, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel, and the United States.
- United States of America:
President Bush and his administration:
President Bush’s most operating and the currently dominating planet Pluto will transit though the 8th house of his ninefold progressive chart during March. Therefore, he will continue to be frustrated with the international as well as domestic matters, and he will continue to have disagreements with his own administration with regard to several domestic as well as international policy issues.
During March, Uranus quincunxes his natal Jupiter and squares his natal Uranus and Rahu. As a result, he will have extremely difficult time in dealing with not only the congress but with his own administration and that will be reflected in his failures and frustration in governing the country.
The Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx (March 19-24) will become responsible for the increased anxiety of Americans for the future direction of the country. Neptune-Saturn ninefold square (March 19-24) will manifest in a chaotic situation with regard to government activities in dealing with domestic and international matters. And also, both man-made and natural calamities can not be ruled out during this period. Pluto-Mars direct (March 3-10) opposition may become responsible for a severe economical crisis.
Neptune-Uranus ninefold trine and Uranus-Jupiter auspicious sextile will be responsible for advances in technology and science.
The friction between the democrats and republicans, particularly between the conservatives and liberals, will intensify during the first two weeks of the month.
· Russia: The Neptune-Saturn ninefold square will manifest in a confused and secret political maneuvering by the Putin administration during the third week of the month making the Russians more anxiety-filled and uncomfortable with their own government.
· Europe: The Neptune-Saturn ninefold square will certainly bring new economical and political challenges for European Union to deal with people during March 19-25. However, the Euro will continue to rise against US dollar and other international currencies.
· China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: For China the third week seems to be very difficult from the economical progress standpoint. In addition, the man-made and natural calamities are likely to occur during the same period. For Japan and for Pacific-rim countries, March looks to be a positive month from economic standpoint.
· Middle East: The Pluto-Mars direct opposition will be responsible for continued violence and terrorism in Middle-East (Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Pakistan region) during March 3-10, and Neptune-Saturn ninefold square will manifest in a renewed surge in violent activities in Iraq.
· Religion: Uranus-Jupiter sextile (March 16 – June 2) is going to be very positive for most of the religions around the world. The spiritual activities, especially in the United States, will find their momentum and will show some significant achievements.
· Natural and Man-made Calamities: The likely notable dates for calamities around the world are: March 3-10 and March 19-25.
Earthquakes: Based on our earthquake prediction model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on March 5, 12, 15-18, and 20-23. While man-made calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest, violence, accidents, and air crashes, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally intensive droughts, hurricanes or typhoons, thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires.
