ninefold trine (December
4 - February 5, 2009)
trine is going to be very favorable for those who have these planets favorably
placed in their natal charts. Expect some sort of spiritual awakening, monetary gains,
promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields. The
idea that you always wanted to pursue a non-material goal 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 this spiritual period.
On a collective level, this is an extraordinary time for
collective spiritual growth,
technological discoveries and inventions. Expect some new
important technological breakthroughs during this month. For the United States, in
general, it's going to be a remarkable and very successful period.
Uranus-Saturn opposition (Jan 26 - Feb 13)
The Saturn-Uranus opposition occurs about once every
40-42 year. This is the second leg of the Uranus-Saturn opposition since we just
had one during last Oct 27 - Nov 14. This time Saturn is
retrograde and Uranus direct. It is
not good for those who have such opposition or square in their birth charts. In
addition, if the planet Uranus 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 opposition can make things so
miserable and difficult for you that most likely you are not going to forget them in your
entire 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 passed.
On a collective level, the United States of America, Russia or China may experience
social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising among them.
conjunction (Ketu-Jupiter opposition) (Feb
7 - 13)
While Rahu-Jupiter conjunction is likely to temporarily
favor orthodox and ultra conservative religious authorities, it also is going to
sow seed of self destruction for those authorities. Some sort of religious
upheaval or conflict is likely to surface during this period.
those who have favorable Rahu-Jupiter aspect in their birth charts are likely to
see some positive changes occurring in their lives during this period.
However, for those who have lunar nodes squaring with the Jupiter are likely to
face some rough times during this period.
a collective level, besides its influence on religion as stated above, Rahu-Jupiter
may become responsible in slowing down social progress, humanitarian efforts,
and charity work. The morality, in general, is likely to take a backseat.
Mars-Rahu conjunction and Mars-Ketu opposition ( Feb
13 - 15)
During these three days Mars conjuncts Rahu and
opposes Ketu. 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 charts. Probably the best thing to do is to lay low
key, not make any new commitment and avoid taking any unnecessary risk.
On the world scene, during these
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.
Pluto-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Feb 19 - 25)
For those who have Pluto in conjunction with Saturn in their birth charts, watch out! If
Saturn and or Pluto is influencing you now through your current
progressive chart, your life is more likely to be shaken up, and depending
on the placement and the strength of these planets in your birth chart, the
severity of the outcome will vary. Although the experience that you might go
through seem unbearable, this may prove to be the beginning of the next plateau of your
life cycle that you are destined for.
On a collective level, the outbreak of violence and
terrorism around the world is very probable. Also, natural calamities like
earthquakes, severe weather conditions, natural as well as man made accidents
are more likely during this period.
Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (Feb 25 - March 3)
If you have a Neptune-Rahu quincunx (with either of these
planets being especially in the sixth, eighth, or the twelfth house in
their birth chart) and if your current operating cycle is influenced by one of these
planets, then you are likely to experience instability in your life caused due to sudden change in
your routine activities and surroundings. Such experiences might turn out to be
very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit
to anything new and stay low key during this period.
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.
Mars-Saturn quincunx (Feb 27 - 28)
Mars-Saturn quincunx can be responsible for a situation of
tension and friction. For those who have
such quincunx in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets
influencing them through the current progressive cycles certainly need to be
careful in dealing with the surroundings around them. Perhaps simply lay back and do nothing. If you must involve in an unwanted
situation, be extra careful and try to minimize the damage. Experiences like fire burns,
rape, accidents, loss of precious things, and monetary disasters are real
On the world scene, a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan is likely. Terrorism and violence,
especially in Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an
undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made
calamities are real possibilities.
