Although itís very difficult to predict the influence of
planets 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 current progressive regular and ninefold charts, and the
current operating planetary cycles the following may or may not be applicable.
Rahu-Pluto opposition (and Ketu-Pluto conjunction)
(regular: July 1 - Aug 24, and ninefold: July 23-Aug 10)
Rahu-Pluto opposition occurs, on average, once every
16-17 years. 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 affecting your life via your current
progressive chart. In my opinion, 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 (by the end of August) due to Pluto's
transformation process, the resulting changes are likely to become irreversible.
Hope we see some kind of a solution. 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
transit in the sidereal zodiac sign Cancer (July 4)
July 4, Jupiter is leaving (sidereal) Gemini and entering the next zodiac sign,
Cancer. Jupiter's transit from one zodiac sign to the next occurs, on
average, once a year. Cancer being the moving and water sign, and also the
sign in which Jupiter gets exalted, expect this Jupiter to bestow on us a year
of material prosperity. (It must be noted that despite Jupiter's positive
influence on world, effects of other planets should be taken into account to
assess the net result or effect). Positive changes in the fields of religion and
academics are very likely. The influence of contemporary philosophers on society is likely to be very pronounced in shaping the future
direction of our social evolution through the philosophical and metaphysical debates.
In general, the cancer Jupiter is known to reinforce the idea that there a lot
more positive forces in the world to counteract and conquer over the evil. So
welcome the Jupiter's entry in Cancer.
individual levels, for those who have dominant Jupiter in their birth charts and
have Gemini, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, or Pisces as their natal ninefold

transit in the sidereal zodiac sign Gemini (July 21)
On July 21, Saturn will enter the sidereal zodiac sign
Gemini, and it will remain in Gemini till January 11, 2003. It returns to Taurus
on January 12 via its retrograde motion (actually becomes retrograde on October
11, 2002) and will stay in Taurus till April 3, 2002.
Gemini being the air and dual sign, for the next two and
half years, Saturn will
influence commerce, academia, and economy. In my opinion, it's going to be
a very positive and exciting two and half years for those who have dominant
Saturn in their birth chart and have Aries, Capricorn, Virgo, and Leo as their
natal ninefold ascendant.
On a collective level, in the next two and half years,
on a world political scene, Russia, and China will become much closer allies of
the United States of America. This trio will counteract the terrorism in a
way no one could imagine.
ninefold trine (July
you have a well placed Neptune in your birth chart, and is in trine with Saturn, and
if you are presently being influenced by any of these planets (Neptune or
Saturn) through their current operating cycles, then you are likely to
experience a very positive period in the areas signified by the houses 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.
on a global scene, this period is very positive for Russia and China. In
addition, most of the
technological areas (especially biotech) 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.
