On November 13, Saturn will enter the sidereal zodiac sign Libra, and it will remain in Libra till May 20, 2012, and then it goes back in Virgo due to its retrograde motion (actually Saturn becomes retrograde on February 8, 2012) and will stay in Virgo till July 31, 2012 before reentering Libra.
Libra being the air and cardinal sign, and the sign in which Saturn becomes exalted for the next two and half years, Saturn will strongly influence the world psyche, world philosophers, world religions, commerce, and economy. New philosophies are likely to emerge complementing the ongoing spiritual evolution. Those who have Saturn in Libra will see their lives evolved (transformed) to a new and higher setting due to a drastic change (mostly at emotional and psychological level) in their perception about the world. It’s going to be a very positive and exciting two and half years for those who have dominant Saturn in their birth chart and have Leo, Sagittarius, Capricorn or Taurus as their natal ninefold ascendant.
On a collective level, for the next two and half years countries like USA, China and Russia will make news headlines. World economies are likely to flourish and in general, people are likely to exhibit happiness.

President Obama and his administration:
President Obama’s operating planet Neptune has been opposing his natal Rahu since mid-July and will continue opposing his natal Rahu till January 20, 2012. With Neptune in the seventh house of his progressive chart, it has been a very challenging and deceptive environment around him, making it difficult for him to deal with the current pressing issues: the economy, international dealings, and deficit. The Neptune in the fourth house of his ninefold progressive chart will force him to deal with the domestic issues, such as homeland security and immigration. However, with Jupiter in Aries, the 9th house (11th from the eleventh) of his progressive chart and in the 11th house of his ninefold progressive chart, and Pluto’s trine with his natal Pluto, he will continue to be amiable, and will continue to slowly but surely inch towards to successfully lead the country to progress.
