Monthly Prediction for October 2000

Date Posted: September 30, 2000 

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 ninefold charts, and the current operating planetary cycles the following may or may not be applicable.

Pluto-Jupiter Opposition

Since September 1, Pluto and Jupiter has been lined up against each other with 180 degrees (+/- 1 degree) angle; and this opposition is going to last through October 23.  Generally this opposition is not good for those who have Pluto-Jupiter square, or opposition in their birth chart or ninefold birth chart. Such people are very likely to lose faith and confidence in them 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 religious world.  Expect some nasty religious incidences around the world.  This is the time when faith is being tested.  Of course, some of the world religious leaders are likely to come out stronger with deeper faith in what they do, and as a result expect some positive developments.

Pluto-Mars Square

This square starts on October 2 and lasts through October may cause great turmoil in lives of individual who have Pluto-Mars square in their natal charts.  Depending on their positions the matters related to the respective houses are likely to be affected.  The severity of the manifestation would be proportional to the strength of this square in the natal chart.  The sudden or drastic change in profession or work places are common results.   

On collective level or on world scene some sort of natural calamities or even made made calamities can not be ruled out.

Saturn-Rahu, and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares

These squares may cause severe turmoil during this month for those who have such squares in their natal chart.  Of course, the severity of turmoil and frustration would depend on the how strong are the squares in the natal chart. 

On the world scene, these squares are likely to cause havoc.  Natural calamities as well as man made accidents all around the world are likely to occur.

Uranus and Neptune return to their direct motion

On October 15 and 26, Neptune and Uranus return to their direct motion respectively.  As a result, the rate of visible result in areas of scientific discoveries and inventions will grow.  Also, political stalemates are likely to find acceptable solutions.  People who excel in academic as well as in art, music, and performers can now breath a sigh of relief as they find their normal mood return.

Retrograde Mercury

On October 19 the planet Mercury becomes retrograde in its motion in sidereal Libra.  Typically retrograde Mercury means delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, obstacles, and disappointment in daily chores.  If you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart, and if your current planetary cycle provides the results of Mercury then you are more likely to experience the effects of retrograde.  

Retrograde Saturn and Jupiter

Saturn and Jupiter will continue to be retrograde during October.  For those who have well placed Saturn and or Jupiter in their birth charts and if any one of these planets period is in currently in operation, such people are likely to feel the deceleration in their progress.  Remember it’s only temporary.  Need to put more energy in to whatever you do to achieve what you need to achieve.

On the world scene, generally, the projects that deal with expansion are likely to either stay on hold or experience some slow progress.  In religious world, things are likely to move at frustrating rate.
