Lunar Eclipse (Sept 7)
A partial lunar eclipse occurs on
September 7 during the hours of 16:00 to 21:00
GMT. It's not a strong eclipse, and it will be visible in Eastern Europe,
Russia, Asia, Africa,
and Australia. Since it's a weaker type it's unlikely to influence the world events in
a significantly negative way.
Total Solar Eclipse (Sept 22)
A total solar eclipse occurs on September
during the hours
of 9:00 to 15:00 GMT. This eclipse will be visible in continents of
Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the east-coast of South
This eclipse is important since the Sun
and Moon will be within 3-4 degrees from Ketu, the Southern or descending node
in the sidereal zodiac sign Virgo. Consequently this eclipse, according to
Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Virgo rising or
Virgo 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 Iran) countries are likely to experience
ninefold trine (Uranus-Ketu ninefold sextile) (Aug
4 - Sept 15)
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
Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu squares (Sept 20 - Oct 18)
The squares of Pluto with the lunar nodes are generally
have tendencies to destroy the present setting of life and transform it into a
totally new one. Those who have better placed lunar nodes and their connections
with Pluto are likely to adapt well to this new change and move to their next
level of evolution while others are likely to struggle and may find the change
unbearable. Perhaps the best way to deal with this situation is to stay alert
and be 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 wanted to begin till this period is
On a collective level, a new wave of renewed violence
between Israel and Palestinians, as well as outbreak of terrorism around the
world during these ten days are real possibilities.
Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine (Sept 6 -30)
At a collective level, the Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine
is positive in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major
terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia
and to some extent for China. Also, on technological front, expect some positive
breakthroughs in high technology and biotechnology fields.
On an individual level, if in your birth chart Pluto is
in sextile with Neptune or Pluto-Neptune form a ninefold trine, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your
life via your current
progressive chart, then you are very likely to be positively affected by this
Depending on the houses these planets
occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a positive experience in that particular field.
Enjoy this experience!
Neptune-Saturn opposition (Aug 25 - Sept 6)
you have a Neptune-Saturn square or opposition in your birth chart, and
if your current planetary operating cycle is
influenced by either of these planets then you are likely to experience a subtle
but serious financial or social setback or an unpleasant secret will be
revealed to you. If you are planning to take a long distance (overseas) trip
during this period, be extra careful of nasty surprises, or even being stranded
in places you never dream of.
the collective level, covert activities will be on rise. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made
calamities are very likely. Places like Russia and China are likely to
experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to
see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious
activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open.
Mars-Rahu opposition and Mars-Ketu conjunction ( Aug
31 - Sept 3)
During these four days Mars conjuncts Ketu and
opposes Rahu. Typically Mar's conjunction and opposition with lunar nodes are very unfavorable and
unfortunate in general. For those who have such oppositions or
conjunctions in their birth
chart, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the
current progressive cycle need be very careful about the matters indicated by
the respective houses in their birth chart. Probably the best thing to do is to lay low
key, not make any new commitment and avoid taking any sort of new risk.
On the world scene, during these four
days both natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise
of an international level political leader, are likely.
Mars-Uranus quincunx (Sept 24-27)
Watch-out for a bad news during these 3-4 days! Sudden and
undesirable happenings are likely to occur if you have such quincunx in your birth
chart. It could be a sudden loss of money, unfortunate accident, or a bad
news. Only thing I suppose you could do is be prepared for worse and avoid taking any new risk during
On a collective level, natural and man-made calamities
are likely, especially in the United States of America.
Both Jupiter and Neptune are considered as auspicious
planets. While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Neptune's
influence on us is very abstract and subtle. Jupiter-Neptune square occurs
once (actually 2-3 times with in a year's period due to their retrograde
motions) in about 6-7 years. If you have
such square in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these two planets
influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you are certainly going to
experience a transformation (irreversible change) in your beliefs and moral
values that you have been attached to. It's time for marching ahead with a
quantum step in the process of self discovery (or evolution). Embrace this
period with total openness and vulnerability. It's the time of rejuvenation with a
positive force in your life. Enjoy!
On the world scene, world religions are likely to be
challenged with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. Those religious
leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new
and fresh ideas are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our
religious world to a new level. Others will fade away with time.
