Global Prediction for March 2014
The important challenging planetary configurations for March include the retrograde Mars (March 2 - May 20), the retrograde Saturn (March 3 - July 21), Neptune-Saturn (March 22-30) and Saturn-Rahu (March 23 - April 21) ninefold quincunxes, Uranus-Jupiter (Feb 14 - May 6) square and Pluto-Saturn ( Feb 24 - March 19) ninefold square.
The manifestation of the Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx will be reflected in rise in covert activities among nations, possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities and political and social turmoil in places like Russia and China. 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 Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx will be responsible for social and political unrest in Russia and/or China. In addition, in the United States for the Republican Party and the republican leaders it may prove to be prudent to stay on guard during this period.
The Uranus-Jupiter square will become responsible for significant changes in religious, academic and to some extent social fields, especially in the United States. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic, but the majority of us are going to embrace this new wave of change and are very likely to enjoy it. The religious norms will certainly be under pressure for changes and those changes will be reflected in modified norms.
The Pluto-Saturn ninefold square may become responsible for serious and sudden social and political challenges for Russia. Also, during the same period instability in Middle East is likely and the both natural and man-made calamities in Europe and in the Middle-East cannot be ruled out.
The auspicious planetary configurations for February include Pluto-Rahu (Jan 23 - Feb 6) and Neptune-Rahu (March 26 - April 2) ninefold sextiles.
The Pluto-Rahu 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 ninefold sextile will 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 countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are: Russia, Ukraine, China, United States, and the Middle East ( Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions).
From February 2 through March 26, President Obama's operating planets will be Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Mercury becomes direct on March 1 in sidereal Capricorn. Then it enters Aquarius on March 12 and remains in Aquarius for the rest of the month. Therefore, in his progressive chart, Mercury will remain in the 6th house till March 12, and then in the 7th house till the end of the month. The 6th house Mercury will be favorable for him with success in governing the country and rise in his popularity till March 12.. However, after March 12, the 7th house Mercury will be very challenging for him for the rest of the month during which he is likely get frustrated with domestic as well as international political challenges that he must overcome. Despite Mercury's trials and tribulations, the favorable positions of Mars and Jupiter and Saturn in his progressive chart will keep things from going to haywire. Somehow he will manage to trade waters through the last eighteen days of March.
The Uranus-Jupiter square will certainly leave its mark as significant changes in religious, academic and to some extent social fields are likely to occur. The religious norms will certainly be under pressure for changes and those changes will be reflected in modified norms.
The Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx will be
responsible new challenges that the Republican Party and the
republican leaders must deal with. It may prove to be prudent to stay on
guard for the Republican party during this period. (More).
Earthquakes: Based on the earthquake prediction model
(based on 1900-2009 data), the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if
occur, are likely to occur on March 3, 5, 11, 13, 18-20,
22-26, 28 and 30-31. (More).
Uranus-Jupiter square (Feb 14 - March 22)
While Jupiter deals with outward and material things
influence on us is very sudden with intensity. Jupiter-Uranus square occurs
once (actually 2-3 times with in a year's period due to their retrograde
motions) in about 8-9 years. If you have
such square in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these two planets
influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you are certainly going to
experience a extreme transformation (irreversible change) in your beliefs and moral
values that you have been attached to. This period is challenging. If you
overcome the challenge it's time for marching ahead with a
quantum step in the process of self discovery (or evolution). (More).
