Planetary Energies for Individuals for February 2023

Date Posted: January 31, 2023

Although it’s very difficult to predict the influence of planetary energy on a given individual without referring to his or her birth chart the following is intended only as a general guideline. For confirmation, however, you must refer to your birth chart. Based on the assessment of planetary strengths or weaknesses in your birth chart, placement of planets in your Gochar (transit) and ninefold Gochar (transit) chart and the current operating planets, the following may be applicable.

Pluto-Rahu ninefold opposition (Jan 29 – Feb 3)

Unless these planets are favorably placed in your birth chart, such opposition or squares between Pluto and lunar nodes, in general, means drastic changes (transformations) pertaining to aspects of your life described by the houses they belong to. Usually such transformations are accompanied with severe pains if lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), and/or Pluto is active via your transit (Gochar) chart.  In my opinion, the best way to deal with this situation is to (which is not easy to do) accept it (the inevitable change), and move on with your life. There’s no point in brooding over it, and not letting your past go. Just believe that on long term basis, such changes are good for you.

On a collective level, an eruption of new waves of violence in the Palestine-Israel and Kashmir regions are likely. And perhaps, towards the end of this period due to Pluto’s transformation process, the resulting changes are likely to become irreversible. In addition, world religions in general, and religious leaders in particular, may experience themselves having to go through crisis that demand changes. In other words, the orthodox religious leaders may come under social and moral pressures to change the way they handle their responsibilities. 

Uranus-Rahu ninefold sextile (Uranus-Ketu ninefold trine)  (Feb 1-9)

Uranus-Rahu ninefold sextile is going to be favorable for those who have lunar nodes favorably placed in their natal charts with respect to Uranus.  If such placing is connected to the first house, second house, ninth house, tenth house, or eleventh house then expect monetary as well as power gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields.  The idea that you always wanted to pursue but somehow could never get started….now is the time to follow that dream. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period.  It’s time to jump in and enjoy this period.

Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine (Feb 9-16)

If you have a well-placed Neptune in your birth chart and is in trine with Saturn, and if any of these planets (Neptune or Saturn) presently active via the transit (Gochar) chart, then you are likely to experience a very positive period in the area signified by the house(s) these planets occupy in your birth chart. Strong intuitive power, very positive environment, and in general, feeling great about yourself and everything around you are some of the symptoms that you are likely to enjoy.

Collectively on a global scene, this period is very positive for Russia and China. In addition, most of the technological areas, especially in medical field, are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.

Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (Feb 15-18)

Saturn-Rahu and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares are going to be devastating for those who have such squares in their natal charts.  Anything that you attempt will likely to fail or will result in agonizing and frustrating experience. This is not the time to take any risk.  If you have such squares in your birth chart and if any one of these planets is presently active through the Gochar (transit) chart, then you need be extra careful. The best thing to do is not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk.   

On a collective level, barbaric activities all around the world are likely to increase. Terrorists are likely to be successful in creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in Europe and Russia is likely. Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.

Pluto-Saturn ninefold square (Feb 28 – March 6)

If in your birth chart Pluto makes a square with Saturn, and if either of these planets is active in your transit (Gochar) chart, then you want to consider taking extra precaution in dealing with money matters, people at work, especially with your adversaries. In general, this is the time to stay low key and not be aggressive. Be cautious and alert as much as possible.  Do not trust anybody during this period. 

On a collective level, Russia is likely to face with some serious challenges and perhaps sudden changes.  To some extent China is also going to have a similar experience.
