Monthly Predictions for February 2016


About transit of Mars in Scorpio......

The Planet Mars enters the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio on February 20. While in Scorpio, it turns retrograde on April 18.  With its retrograde motion it goes back in Libra on June 18.  It becomes direct in Libra on June 30 and then with it's direct motion re-enters Scorpio on July 11.  It remains in Scorpio until September 18.  Thus, except for June 18- July 11, Mars occupies Scorpio from February 20 through September 18.  Saturn, being in Scorpio all through 2016, conjuncts Mars with one degree orb during August 20-28.

Scorpio being a water and fixed sign ruled by Mars, it becomes extremely challenging for Scorpio resident Saturn when Mars is in Scorpio.  Because by nature, Mars and Saturn do not complement each other, when Mars dominates (being the ruler of Scorpio) Saturn is naturally going to feel totally out of place in Scorpio.  Furthermore, because Scorpio is a water (emotional) sign, Saturn in Scorpio feels suffocated, withdrawn and paralyzed.  Due to the presence of Mars, Saturn is very likely to go off track and potentially become self-destructive.

As a result of this challenging combination of Saturn and Mars in Scorpio, February 20 through September 18 will be filled with undesirable activities that will affect not only the Middle-East but the entire world. Some of the manifestations of this conjunction are: terrorism, ongoing barbaric activities, senseless killings, persecutions, pain and suffering, violence, wars and intolerable and tragic situations for those who cannot defend themselves. In the United States, the Republican Party will go through a dramatic and painful experience since Saturn represents conservative principles.  Financial markets, especially oil and energy-related markets will exhibit tremendous volatility. Natural calamities, including extreme weather conditions, abnormal weather patterns, earthquakes of significant magnitude, wildfires, hurricanes, snow storms etc., are likely to occur more frequently. Those who are born with the Scorpio as ascendant or with Moon in Scorpio are likely to experience difficult period filled with challenges; but the very same experience will likely to provide them with the opportunity to transform their lives in a positive way (self-discovery).  


About Pluto-Uranus square.......

In next two months or so, Uranus and Pluto will be making their fifth and the last square until the next one that will occur about 75-80 years from now.  The Pluto-Uranus square is about the transformation (irreversible change), and since the astrological characteristics of Uranus are very closely linked with that of the United States, this square will certainly leave its mark that will be reflected in the drastic changes (transformation) in political, social, cultural and technological fields for the United States of America.  

Global Predictions......

The manifestation of the Saturn-Rahu (Jan 28-Feb 1) ninefold conjunction may be reflected in difficult period for Russia, China and to some extent Europe from the political turmoil standpoint.  Also, for the Republican Party in the United States (and for republicans as well), it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.

The Uranus-Mars (Feb 3-6) square may become responsible for severe natural and/or man-made calamities in the United States.

The Neptune-Jupiter (Feb 26-29) ninefold square may become the cause for the challenges that the world religious leaders will face with the earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. The religious leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our religious world to a new level. Others are going to fade away with time. 

The Pluto-Rahu (Feb 11-19) ninefold sextile means a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

The manifestation of the Neptune-Rahu (Feb 21-28) ninefold sextile may be reflected in a positive period for Russia and China. Also, most of the technological areas are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy and create a very healthy atmosphere around us.

The Saturn-Jupiter ninefold (Feb 28 - March 2) sextile may become responsible for the world religions having positive activities and experiences. People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

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


About President Obama....

President Obama's operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Mercury, Sun and Pluto.

During February, the Mercury with its direct motion stays in sidereal Sagittarius (in the fifth house of his progressive chart) till February 8, then enters sidereal Capricorn (the sixth house of his progressive chart). And it remains in Capricorn till the end of the month.

The unfavorable fifth house Mercury means, he will be brooding over the matters of important from national security standpoint, and he will continue to have difficulty in reaching a decision till February 8.  However, after February 8, due to the favorable sixth house Mercury, he will be reasonably successful in dealing with the both domestic and international issues.

Sun is presently transiting through the favorable sixth house of his progressive chart till Feb 13. And then for the remaining part of the month, through the not so favorable seventh house of his progressive chart.  As a result, until Feb 13, he is likely to enjoy a positive period of overcoming his adversaries and for pushing forward his political agenda.   After February 13, due to Sun's transit through the seventh house of his progressive chart, he will  face difficulties in dealing with his adversaries.

Pluto being placed in favorable 5th and the 3rd house of progressive and the ninefold progressive chart respectively Pluto will bring him a positive and refreshing change enabling him to govern the country with a higher degree of confidence. 

Thus, overall, while during February 8-13, he will have least difficulties in dealing with his adversaries and have a reasonable success in carrying out his agenda, the remaining days of February will turn out to be challenging from the standpoint of governing the country.

About USA.....

The manifestation of the Saturn-Rahu (Jan 28-Feb 1) ninefold conjunction may be reflected in difficult period for the Republican Party and for the republicans. It may prove to be prudent for the Party to stay on guard during this period.

The Uranus-Mars (Feb 3-6) square may become responsible for severe natural and/or man-made calamities in the United States.  (More)

Individual Predictions

Pluto-Ketu ninefold trine (and Pluto-Rahu sextile) (Feb 11-19)

If through your current progressive chart influence of either Pluto or lunar node is active and if Pluto is favorably positioned with respect to lunar nodes in your natal chart then expect a very favorable time. Such positive events will be related to the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspect. For example, if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in relationship area, or business partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involved it may financially prove to be a very rewarding period.   (More)
