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.
entry in sidereal Aries (and Ketuís in sidereal Libra)
The lunar nodes Rahu and Ketu
transit through a zodiac sign for about one and half years.
Therefore, the upcoming Rahuís entry in sidereal zodiac sign Aries and
simultaneously Ketuís entry in sidereal zodiac sign Libra on September 11
becomes an important astrological event. Generally
lunar nodes dictate major events in our lives.
Depending upon their strength as
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
these lunar nodes in their birth charts or horoscopes.
For those who have Gemini, Virgo,
Capricorn or Aquarius as either rising sign (ascendant) in their birth charts or in
their ninefold birth charts are likely to experience a very rewarding period for
the next year and half. Depending
on the proximity of Rahuís position from its house cusp results will manifest
For those who have Pisces, Taurus,
Cancer, Libra, or Scorpio, as either rising sign (ascendant) in their birth
charts or in their ninefold birth charts are likely to experience difficult
challenges. Of course the severity
of such experiences will be proportional to the weakness of these nodes in the
Mars-Rahu ninefold conjunction (Mars-Ketu opposition)
During Oct 12-15 period Mars and Rahu make ninefold
conjunction (Mars and Ketu ninefold opposition). Typically these
configurations are very unfavorable and
unfortunate in general. For those who have these conjunctions or
oppositions in their birth charts and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the
current progressive cycle need to be 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, both natural and
man-made calamities are likely causing destruction and loss of lives during these
Neptune-Jupiter Quincunx (Oct 12-21)
If you have Neptune-Jupiter quincunx in your birth chart,
and if any one of these two planets is influencing you now through your current
progressive chart, then during this period you are likely to be confused with
issues that deal with religion and morality. This is the time to pause and
ponder. Your faith will be tested and character will be challenged. This quincunx has a tendency to create
a profound confusion with matters that deal with faith and religion.
On a collective level, religions and religious leaders
are either likely to face real challenges of reforms or they could take undue
advantage of people's vulnerability about their religious beliefs.
ninefold square(s) (Sept
(and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be devastating for those who have such
squares in their natal charts. Anything that you attempt will be failed or
result in agonizing and frustrating experience. This is not the time to take any
risk. 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
to make any new commitment, and
totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk.
On a collective level, barbaric activities all around
the world are likely to increase. Terrorists are likely to be successful in
creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoils in Europe and Russia are likely.
Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.
Pluto-Ketu ninefold trine (and Pluto-Rahu sextile)
If through your current progressive chart influence of
either Pluto or lunar node is active and if Pluto is favorably positioned with
respect to lunar nodes in your natal chart expect a very favorable time during
October. Such positive events will be related to the affairs signified by the
houses these planets occupy or aspects. For example if the seventh house is
involved, expect a new and positive development in a relationship, or business
partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If
eleventh house is involved October may financially prove to be a very rewarding
On a collective level, this is a good period for
European economy. This period (Oct 19-27) is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
ninefold trine (Oct
ninefold trine is going to be favorable for those who have these
planets favorably placed in their natal charts. 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. However, don't neglect your
family during this busy time. You will distinctly notice
and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period. It's
time to jump in and enjoy this period.
On a collective level, religious activities all around
the world are likely to expand with new vigor and energy, conservatives will
find ways to compromise with liberals on sticky issues. Democrats and
Republicans will agree on more matters than the ones they disagree. This
is a good time to get those lingering bills passed in U.S. Congress and Senates.
China and Russia are likely to experience some mild setbacks in their foreign
policies, especially the one that deals with the United States.
