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.
Retrograde Jupiter (Dec 4 - April 4)
Jupiter, which became retrograde on December 4, will stay retrograde until April 4, 2003 in the sidereal zodiac Cancer. For those who have
a well placed Jupiter in their birth charts and if Jupiter's period is currently in
operation, such people are likely to feel the deceleration in their progress.
Remember it's only temporary! Need to put more energy in to whatever you
do to achieve what you need to achieve.
the world scene, particularly in religious world, "confusion"
will dominate and things are likely to move at much slower rate. The world economy may experience a slower growth.
ninefold conjunction (Rahu-Saturn opposition) (Mar18-24)
The time when Saturn-Ketu ninefold conjunction occurs is
not favorable for those who have such conjunction or squares in their birth charts. In
addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting your life via your current
progressive chart, then you might want to consider
taking extra precautions in the areas which are affected by these planets as
shown in your natal chart. Such people should avoid taking any kind of
risk at any cost during this period. Such conjunction can make things difficult for you
and make you feel miserable that you probably will not forget this period in your
life. Staying low
key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new ventures and postpone the
matters that require you to make a crucial decision till this period is passed.
On a collective level, Russia, China and to some extent,
Europe may experience
social or political turmoil during this period. Also, for the Republic Party in
the United States and for republicans
including President Bush, it may prove to be prudent to stay on
guard during Mar18-24 period.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (March 2 -15)
At a collective level, the Pluto-Uranus ninefold square could
bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other
nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a
transformation of a political strategy that might become responsible of a change
in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Bush 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 Bush administration could get
On an individual level, 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.
(and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (Mar
(and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have
such squares in their natal charts. Expect sudden loss of money, power, demotions
at work place and/or tarnished reputation in professional and social
fields. If you have such squares in your birth
chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the
current progressive cycle then you need be extra careful. The best thing to do is
not make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk. Remember
you never suspected a closed friend, and you suddenly find out that he or she
secretly doing things behind your back to hurt you....well something similar is
likely to happen....be careful!
On a collective level, secret activities all around
the world are likely to accelerate including political covert activities. Social
confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China is a good possibility.
ninefold trine (Ketu-Uranus ninefold sextile) (Mar
trine is going to be very favorable for those who have lunar nodes favorably
placed in their natal charts with respect to Uranus. If such placing is
connected to the first house, second house, ninth house, tenth house, or
eleventh house then expect monetary as well as power gains, promotions and
improved prestige in professional and social fields. The ideas that you
always wanted to pursue but somehow could never get started....now is the time
to follow that dream. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy
flowing through you during this period. It's time to jump in and enjoy
