Monthly predictions for March 2017

February 28, 2017

About President Donald Trump and his challenges......

Presently President Trump's operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) are Saturn and Venus. 

During March, Saturn  remains in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh house of his progressive chart. In his ninefold progressive chart Saturn will be in the 11th house till March 14, and then in the challenging 12th house for the remaining days of March. Venus will be in sidereal Pisces, the tenth house of his progressive chart.  Both of these planets will be unfavorable for him as the seventh house resident transiting Saturn makes matters more difficult to deal with, especially to his own cabinet members, and the 10th house resident transiting Venus, distracts him from his presidential duties due to some external influence. 

In addition, when the planetary transits with respect to his natal chart are considered, the transiting Saturn will quincunx the 11th house resident natal Venus during the entire month, and the manifestation of this particular transit may be reflected in situations that he will find beyond his control to deal with. 

Thus, the operating planets are unfavorable from the Dasa cycle standpoint, and the influence of transiting Saturn as explained above, may become responsible for yet another challenging month for him to deal with the people around him.

As indicated last October in my  US 2016 Presidential Election prediction,  a very likely scenario, as reproduced below, is a strong possibility. 

"However, I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, look at the destiny of the United States, which in my opinion is very much dependent on the transiting Uranus. And because the retrograde Uranus being temporarily back in the sidereal Pisces and will not return to sidereal Aries (the cardinal fire sign) until April 2017, there's a strong possibility that the election outcome may not matter come April 2017.  Without being sensationalizing and dramatizing the future of the United States, I think that when Uranus returns to sidereal Aries in April 2017 it will certainly and drastically change the political landscape. As a result, it's very likely that the person who will be the leading the world's powerful nation then as the president of the USA will be a different one."   


About Uranus's entry in sidereal Aries ........

One of the important planetary events of 2017 is the transit of the modern planet Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. It will station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will enter Aries, and will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so. 

Uranus, being the planet of change, will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in world political landscape is going to be tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries. The people who are most affected by this transit are military personnel, business and political leaders.  In scientific and technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will find their way into innovations and discoveries.  The scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace.  A new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on world order will certainly transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to. 

On individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage, profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.

About Brexit.....

Personally, I don’t put a lot of stalk in the chart of a country since before the inception time of the chart the land existed.  Instead, I look at the characteristics of the zodiac signs and planets associated with that land and the planetary transits. 

In my opinion, UK is very closely tied with the sign Aries, a cardinal and fiery sign ruled my mighty Mars, and where Sun gets exalted.  This is clearly reflected in the way Briton dominated the world in last few centuries.  

Uranus in Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and also Aries (ruled by Mars) being an extremely independent sign…this combination may prove to be very positive for UK.  But Uranus being whimsical and as it constantly demands change (therefore, unsteady) it had been interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 - September 4, 2016 in UK.  Because, after September 4, 2106, Uranus returned to sidereal Pisces and will stay in Pisces till April 6, 2017 a possibility of reversal of Brexit (which may very well be short lived) exists! Let us see how Briton evolves during next month.  It will be a glimpse or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.


Global Predictions......

The important challenging planetary configurations for March include Pluto-Rahu (March 10-18) ninefold quincunx, Pluto-Jupiter (March 22 - April 5) square, Uranus-Rahu/Ketu (March 8-13) and Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (March 13-20) ninefold squares.

The Pluto-Rahu (March 10-18) ninefold quincunx may become responsible for an eruption of new waves of violence in the Palestine-Israel, Syria and  Afghanistan-Pakistan regions. 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. 

The manifestation of the direct square of Jupiter with Pluto (March 22 - April 5) maybe reflected in some drastic changes in religious and academic world since this square will create religious challenges as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic. 

The Uranus-Rahu/Ketu (March 8-13) ninefold square is likely to become responsible for terrorist activities in the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel and Palestine). The United States and particularly the President Trump and his administration should take extra precaution in dealing with foreign matters during this period.

The Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (March 13-20) ninefold square may mean secret activities all around the world to accelerate including political covert activities. Social confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China is very possible.


The important auspicious planetary configuration for March include Uranus-Jupiter (Feb 21 - Mar 9) opposition and Pluto-Uranus (Jan 1-Mar 13) and Pluto-Neptune (March 8 - April 6) ninefold trines.

The Uranus-Jupiter (Feb 21 - Mar 9) opposition may become responsible for challenges that world religious leaders face with 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 will fade away with time. The new age philosophers are likely to emerge as lead contemporary philosophers.

The manifestation of the Pluto-Uranus (Jan 1 - March 13) ninefold trine may be reflected in an extraordinary time for technological discoveries and inventions.  Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this period. For the United States, in general, this period is going to be remarkable and successful.

The Pluto-Neptune (March 8 - April 6) ninefold trine may turn out to be positive in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia and to some extent for China. Also, on technological front, expect some positive breakthroughs in medical, high technology and biotechnology fields. 

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

Individual Predictions

Retrograde Venus (March 4 - April 15)

On March 4, the planet Venus turns retrograde in its motion in sidereal zodiac sign Pisces. Venus becomes retrograde about once every 19 months, and stays retrograde for about six weeks.  In general, a retrograde Venus means a very challenging period for women, marriages, home life, lovers, entertainment industries.  Expect the divorce rates to peak, fighting between spouses to intensify, and delays, frustrations, and misunderstandings to take a center-stage in domestic matters. If you have a dominating Venus in your birth chart, and if your current planetary cycle influences your life via Venus then you are more likely to experience the effects of the retrograde Venus till April 15. The entertainers like actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, movie directors and producers may find themselves in a miserable situation during the retrograde Venus period especially if they are currently being influenced by Venus through their current progressive cycles.   (More)
