Longevity and the Modern Planets  

(In year 2014 Neptune has completed one complete circle around the sun since its discovery in 1846. This article was first posted in February 2005  on this website)

We live in exciting times.  The technological advances in health care, surgeries, and increased awareness of forces that are responsible for improved quality of life has significantly and positively influenced the average human life expectancy. It is important to recognize that until the eighteenth century the average life expectancy has been less than thirty years or so.  Then in the eighteenth century the rate of human life expectancy slowly started rising. 

The modern planets (the outer planets), Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, were (compared to other planets of our solar system) recently discovered.  Until they were discovered they were not part of our collective conscious, and therefore, their influence on our lives was insignificant. English astronomer William Herschel discovered the planet Uranus in 1781.  Then in 1846 Neptune was discovered followed by the discovery of the planet Pluto in 1930.   The rapid technological advancement began in the last quarter of the eighteenth century with the advent of steam engine. With successive discoveries of Neptune and Pluto in the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries respectively we have experienced exponential growth in technology. For instance, while we take air travel so much for granted, the invention of airplane occurred only about hundred years ago. And then came television, computers, satellite communications, cell phones and so many other inventions, and since then our lives have been profoundly changed the way we live today.

Until Uranus was discovered the slowest moving planet known to us was Saturn with its thirty-year period for orbiting around the Sun.  Itís interesting to note that before the discovery of Uranus the average human life expectancy was around thirty and in the next century the average human life expectancy started rising.  It takes on average eighty-four years for Uranus to orbit around the Sun.  After itís discovery the first orbit of Uranus around the Sun was completed by 1865, and then it totally became the part of our collective conscious.  It is after that year the average human life expectancy passed over 30 years.

With the similar logic until Neptune was discovered the slowest moving planet known to us was Uranus.  The average period of rotation for Neptune around the Sun is about 168 years.  And therefore, after itís discovery the complete rotation of Neptune around the Sun will be approximately completed by the year 2014.  By then Neptune will totally be a part of our collective conscious. Thus by year 2014, according to logic applied earlier for Saturn-Uranus case, the average human life expectancy is expected to surpass eighty four years.  Presently average life expectancy in the United States is about 75 years, and for world as a whole, the average life expectancy is not too far behind. In light of current state of human living conditions and rapid growth of technological advances itís very probable that collectively we will surpass the average life expectancy of 84 years by year 2014.

With the similar reasoning, until the planet Pluto was discovered the slowest moving planet known to us was Neptune.  It takes on average about 268 years for Pluto to orbit around the Sun, and therefore, it will be approximately year 2200 before Pluto completes itís first orbit around the Sun after its discovery.  Applying the same logic as we did before for Uranus-Neptune pair, it wouldn't be surprising if we surpass average human life expectancy of 168 years by year 2200.

 

Monthly Global Prediction for December 2014  

Global Predictions......

The challenging planetary configurations.....  

The Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition (Dec 22-30) may become responsible for social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China. Eastern Europeans are also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration.  Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of Neptune's secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.

The manifestation of Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx (Dec 5-11) may be reflected in rise in covert activities, natural and man-made calamities. Places like Russia and China are likely to experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open. 

The influence of the Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx Dec 5-19) may be reflected in a difficult period for the United States and in particular, for the Republic Party. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

The Uranus-Jupiter (Dec 1-23) ninefold square may become responsible for the challenges religious leaders around the world are likely to face with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. The ones 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 ninefold square of Uranus with Pluto (Nov 22-April 6) is likely to become responsible for a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that will result in a change in the current political agenda and foreign policy matters of the Obama administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the Obama administration could continue to get tangled with.

The auspicious planetary configurations......

The manifestation of the Rahu-Jupiter ninefold trine (Dec 7 - Jan 13) may be reflected in positive developments with respect to religions all around the world. People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

The Uranus-Saturn ninefold trine Dec 14-19) may become responsible for excellent period for religious activities around the world. Also, this is a great time for the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and domestically.

The influence of the Pluto-Rahu ninefold sextile (Dec 10-17) maybe reflected in a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

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

About President Obama....

For December 2014, President Obama's operating planets are going to be again the prominent planet, Mercury, and less prominent planets, Venus and Neptune. The month begins with Mercury in sidereal Scorpio and transits through Scorpio till December 13, it then enters sidereal Sagittarius and remains there for the rest of the month. Therefore, in his progressive chart, Mercury will remain in the 4th house till December 13, then in the 5th house for the rest of the month. 

Since the fourth house Mercury is favorable for him, during the first 13 days of December, Mercury will provide him the energy he needs to successfully deal with the both international and domestic crises and issues. However after December 13, he will be facing new challenges and difficulties and it will take lot of energy for him to overcome those challenges and difficulties.

Venus being in the fourth and the fifth house will be favorable for him but Neptune, being in the 7th house of his progressive chart, will continue to play a role of deception in dealing with people around him.  As a result of this Neptune, when he is confronted with crisis to make some critical decisions he needs to be aware of possibility of deception in his thinking process.

About USA.....

The ninefold square of Uranus with Pluto (Nov 22 - April 6) is likely to become responsible for a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that will result in a change in the current political agenda and foreign policy matters of the Obama administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the Obama administration could get tangled with.

The influence of the Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx (December 5-19) may be reflected in a difficult period for the United States and in particular, for the Republic Party. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.      (More)

Earthquakes: Based on the latest earthquake prediction model III (yet to be published) the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on December 3-7, 9-11, 16, 18, 25, 28-29. Please note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT).  (More)

 

Individual Predictions

Pluto-Uranus square (November 22 - April 6)

If in your birth chart Pluto makes a square with Uranus, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are very likely to be affected by this square.  Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and a totally new and a very unpleasant experience in that particular field. Be ready to face this unwanted experience. Stay alert and try not to start a new venture that requires taking risk. It's like you are on a business trip or company assignment and you are immediately called off or caught in a situation that you find very difficult if not impossible to get out.  (More)
