Total Lunar Eclipse (Nov 8/9)
A total lunar eclipse occurs on November 8/9 approximately
during the hours
of 21:15 to 3:15 GMT. This eclipse will be visible in entire Europe,
North, Central and South America, Middle-East, Africa, Russia, Indian
subcontinent and Western China.
This eclipse is important since the Sun will be within 3-4 degrees
with Ketu, the Southern or descending node
in the sidereal zodiac sign Libra, and similarly Moon with Rahu in Aries.. Consequently this eclipse, according to
Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Libra
or Aries rising or as moon sign.
For those who have the lunar nodes in conjunction with
either Sun or Moon should watch-out. It's not a good
day! Take extra precaution and avoid any sort of outdoor activity
requiring you to get out of house.
On world scene, the middle east (especially Israel,
Palestine, Iraq, and perhaps Saudi Arabia), some part of Europe, and United
States are likely to experience occurrences of violence.
Solar Eclipse (November 23/24)
A partial solar eclipse occurs on November 23/24 during the hours of 22:00 to
GMT. It's not a strong eclipse, and it will be visible in Europe, Asia, Africa,
and Australia. It will be visible for Pacific-rim countries, Japan,
Australia, and Western part of North America. Since it's a weaker type, I
don't expect it to influence the world events in significantly negative
Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition (Neptune-Ketu
ninefold conjunction) (Nov 4-14)
If you have a poor placing of Neptune-Rahu (or
Neptune-Ketu), by being especially in the sixth, eighth, and the twelfth house in
their birth chart, and if your current operating cycles are influenced by one of these
planets then you are likely to experience instability in your life caused due to sudden change in
your activities or surroundings. Such experiences might turn out to be
very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit
to anything new during this one to two week period and remain very low key.
On the collective level, social as well as economic
turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out. Eastern European
also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration.
Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of
Neptune's secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and
other international conflicts.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction (Uranus/Ketu opposition)
(Nov 30 - Dec 8)
If in your birth chart Uranus is in the direct
conjunction with the lunar node Rahu, and if any one of these two planets are
influencing you now via your current progressive chart, then you might want to
consider taking extra precautions in your professional and financial areas
during the first week of December. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. This
opposition can become dangerous, and ruin your plans and bring about the
unexpected disaster in every which way. In short during this period you
will be tested. If you have very strong and positively placed lunar nodes and
Uranus in your birth chart, then perhaps you need not worry.
On a collective level, the United States and in
particular, the Republic Party and republicans including the republican
president Bush are likely to run into some very difficult period. Also, USA and
China may go through a crisis situation during this period.
Uranus-Saturn ninefold trine (Nov 21-30)
This is a very good period for those who have
Uranus-Saturn trine in their natal charts, and one of these two planets are
operating though their current cycles. Depending on the houses with which
these planets are connected in the birth charts
expect some real positive development in those respective aspects of your life.
On a collective level, this is a good period for
religious activities all around the world. Also, this is a great time for
the USA to make some extraordinary progress in both internationally and
Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (Nov 9 - Dec 7)
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 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 matters that President Bush and his administration
will be forced to face with.
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.
Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu ninefold squares (Nov 27-
The squares of Pluto with the lunar nodes are generally
have tendencies to destroy the present setting of life and transform in to a
totally new one. Those who have better placed lunar nodes and their connection
with Pluto are likely to adapt well to this new change and move to their next
level of evolution, and others are likely struggle and may find the change
unbearable. Perhaps the best way to deal with this situation is to stay alert
and extremely cautious in dealing with your surroundings that affect you. Avoid taking any
new risk during this period. And probably be prepared for situations that are going
to get worse before they get better with new direction in life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go. Avoid any new
ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin till this period is
On a collective level, a new wave of renewed violence
between Israel and Palestinians, as well as an outbreak of terrorism around the
world during these seven or eight days is very likely.
