Monthly Global Predictions for March 2018

Date Posted: February 28, 2018

About President Donald Trump and his challenges……

President Trump’s operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) for March will continue to be Saturn and Venus. In addition, Sun becomes operating after March 3.

During March, Saturn will be in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh house of his progressive chart. And it will be in the 3rd house of his ninefold progressive chart. Venus will be in sidereal Pisces (the 10th house of his progressive chart) until March 26 and then in Aries for the rest of the month.  Sun will be in sidereal Aquarius till 14th of March and then in Pisces for the rest of the month.

From Dasa standpoint, Saturn is unfavorable (being in the seventh house of his progressive chart) for him, but being in the 3rd house of his ninefold progressive chart, it’s favorable for him. Therefore, while Mr. trump will likely to continue to cause a lot of stir by exhibiting immature and senseless behavior in dealing with his friends and adversaries alike, simultaneously he is also likely to get his way in moving his agenda and to some extent victorious over his adversaries. However, through the entire month he might get involved in direct confrontations with people that include not only his adversaries but also his family members.

The manifestation of the unfavorable tenth house resident transiting Venus, until March 26, will be reflected in his increasing difficulties in dealing with politics and people, especially women.  However, after March 26, the 11th house Venus becomes favorable for him in having successful period in general.  

The transiting Sun in the 9th house of his progressive chart may make become the cause for fear of ongoing Russia probe by the special council, as well as he might be facing intense opposition from GOP leaders.  During the second half of March however, the transiting Sun being in the 10th house of his progressive chart, he is likely enjoy favorable period of success and prestige.  

When the planetary transits with respect to his natal chart are considered, the transiting Uranus will be in square with his natal Venus (Feb 26 – April 8 ).  And currently Venus being his operating planet, this square will continue to become cause for more chaos, sex scandals, rude and insulting behavior towards women, uncertain environment in the White House, and drastic and destructive changes in his administration.

Thus, while during March, the favorable transit of ninefold Saturn may bestow him with some political success, the violent square of Uranus with his natal Venus still can become responsible for yet another extremely challenging and trying month for him to deal with the ongoing Russia probe, women, suspicious and insecure people around him and in advancing his political agenda.

Retrograde Mercury (March 23 – April 15) 

On March 23, the planet Mercury becomes retrograde in sidereal Pisces. It will stay retrograde in Pisces until April 15. Typically retrograde Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Pisces means more frustrating periods for people who work in hospitals, charities, psychiatric wards, prisons, monks, spiritually inclined and people with deep emotional issues or challenges. This is the time not to start a new project or venture, but rather reflect on what’s been done so far.  Also, this is the best time to cleanup that closet and do other chores that you have been postponing due to lack of time.

In addition, if you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart, and if Mercury is currently your operating planet, then you are more likely to experience the pronounced effects of retrograde Mercury during this period with respect to matters signified by the house it’s currently transiting through in your progressive chart.

Global Predictions……..

The important challenging planetary configurations for March include Neptune-Rahu (Feb 17 – March 10) quincunx, Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (March 1-3) ninefold squares.

The manifestation of the Neptune-Rahu (Feb 17 – March 10) quincunx will be reflected in economic turmoil in Russia and China. Also, 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.

The Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (March 1-3) ninefold squares may become responsible for accelerated political covert activities all around the world. Social confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China is a real possibility.

The important auspicious planetary configuration for March include Pluto-Neptune (Feb 11 – March 26), Pluto-Saturn (Feb 22 – March 7) and Neptune-Saturn (Feb 17 – March 5) ninefold trines.

The Pluto-Neptune (Feb 11 – March 26) ninefold trine means a welcome change 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 from international relations standpoint. Also, on technological front, expect some positive breakthroughs in high technology and medical fields.

While the manifestations of the Pluto-Saturn (Feb 22 – March 7) ninefold trine may be reflected in a positive economic period for Europe and Russia and also for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation, the Neptune-Saturn (Feb 17 – March 5) ninefold trine may become responsible for significant progress (especially in the biotech field) via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  Russia, China, the USA, North and South Korea and the Middle East (Syria, Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions).
