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 general guidance. For confirmation, however, you must refer to your birth chart, and based on the assessment of planetary strength or weakness, placement of planets in your current progressive regular and nine fold charts, and the current operating planetary cycles the following may or may not be applicable.
August 7 through August 10 Neptune and Mars going to be lined up against each other with 180 degrees (+/- 1 degree) angle. Generally this opposition is not good for those who have Neptune-Mars conjunction, square, or opposition in their birth chart or ninefold birth chart. Such people are very likely to be betrayed or have misfortune, or illness during this opposition. Of course, the intensity of such happening depends on how strong the above mentioned angles are in their birth or ninefold birth charts.
On a world scene this opposition may cause some turmoil in Russia and China. Covert operations are likely to be failed during this time.
This opposition occurs Mars Rahu conjunction occurs once about every 19 to 20 months. For those (especially people in army, military, navy, airforce, engineers who deal with fire, construction workers, commanders, etc.,) who have both predominant Mars and Rahu are likely to experience some extreme situations (either very positive or very negative) during August 21-August 23 period.
Rahu’s entry in sidereal Gemini (and Ketu’s in sidereal Sagittarius)
The lunar nodes Rahu and Ketu transit through a zodiac sign for about one and half years. Therefore, the upcoming Rahu’s entry in sidereal zodiac sign Gemini and simultaneously Ketu’s entry in sidereal zodiac sign Sagittarius on August 4th becomes an important astrological event. Generally lunar nodes dictate major events in ones life.
Depending upon their strength as evident in the birth chart their influence on individuals can be significant. Most of the famous people in all walks of life have unique placing of these lunar nodes in their birth charts or horoscopes.
For those who have Aries, Leo, Virgo, or Capricorn as either rising sign (ascendant) in their birth charts or in their ninefold birth charts are likely to experience a very rewarding period for the next year and half. Depending on the proximity of Rahu’s position from its house cusp results will manifest accordingly.
For those who have Cancer, Scorpio, Sagittarius, or Taurus as either rising sign (ascendant) in their birth charts or in their ninefold birth charts are likely to experience difficult challenges. Of course the severity of such experiences would be proportional to the weakness of these nodes in the natal chart.
