Therefore, the upcoming Rahuís entry in sidereal zodiac sign Taurus and
simultaneously Ketuís entry in sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio on February 22nd
becomes an important astrological event. Generally
lunar nodes dictate major events in our lives.

evident in the birth chart their influence on individuals can be significant.
Most of the famous people in all walks of life have unique placing of

Leo, Scorpio, or Sagittarius, as either rising sign (ascendant) in their birth
charts or in their ninefold birth charts are likely to experience difficult

the world scene, during the next six months or so (especially when Rahu opposes
the Pluto while Ketu becomes in conjunction with Pluto) expect a lot of turmoil
and violence as Israelis and Palestinians accelerate their fight against each
other. Don't be surprised if other Middle Eastern countries get involved
in the conflict. As a result, the world stability will certainly be remain

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.

square. Typically this square is very unfavorable and
unfortunate in general. For those who have such square in their birth
chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the
current progressive cycle need be extra careful. The best thing to do is to lay low
key, not make any new commitment, and avoid taking any sort of risk.
On the world scene, expect some sudden outbreak of an
undesirable happening, good possibility of both natural and
man-made calamities. The countries that are most likely to be affected during
these three days would be Pakistan and Russia.

developments occurring in the social and economical fields.
