Influence of planets on Individuals for May 2009
Date Posted: April 30, 2009
 

    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.  

Uranus's entry in the sidereal Pisces

One of the important planetary events for April 2009 is the transit of the modern planet Uranus from (sidereal) Aquarius to Pisces occurring on April 2. Uranus will stay in Pisces till October 12, 2009, and then with its retrograde motion returns to Aquarius and remains in Aquarius till January 20, 2010. After January 20, 2010, it will reenter Pisces and stay in Pisces for the next 7 years (2016/17).

Uranus, being the planet of change, will certainly affect the matters related to Pisces sign in a big way. Pisces is a mutable water sign. It's a very emotional and spiritual sign ruled by the planet  Jupiter. Some of the unique characteristics of Uranus include: unorthodox, skeptical, extremely independent minded, brilliant, innovative, unyielding until fully convinced, standing up for oppressed or those who can not defend themselves. As a result, Uranus's transit through Pisces will be responsible for transforming the world in which the morality and spirituality will evolve to meet the social needs of the twenty first century. Typically Uranus, the unconventional and forceful planet, brings about the transformation in a painful manner.  As a result, there will be a severe crisis in the religious world before the transformation begins.  The orthodox religious leaders as well as conventional philosophers will be forced to abandon their way of thinking and accept the new norms or become extinct. The religions or the way of our living will be questioned time and again through the next 7 years to modify the existing norms.

The transit of Uranus through Pisces is particularly important for the United States as it directly influences that country in shaping her future.

Another important aspect of this transit is the terrorism.  About 8 years ago (April 2001) Uranus entered in the sidereal Aquarius.  Aquarius is an air sign ruled by Saturn. Among other demographic locations, Saturn rules the Middle-East. Since Uranus and Saturn do not get along well, the very entry of Uranus in Aquarius was marked by the September 11 attack on the twin towers in New York City and the Pentagon building in Washington, D.C. Now that Uranus will be leaving Aquarius and entering Pisces, there's a good chance this transit will be marked by the capture and defeat of terrorists who attacked the United Sates. And therefore, I would not be surprised if Bin Laden is captured (dead or alive) very soon (between now and October, 2009).

For financial world this Uranus transit is very important since it will set the tone for financial recovery soon after April 2. World financial markets have likely to hit the bottom before April 2.

In scientific and technological areas expect big new ideas will find their way to manifest themselves into innovations and discoveries in fields of oceanography, medicine, biotechnology, health and fitness. New techniques of meditations will be invented. During the time when Uranus transits through Pisces, Pluto transits through Sagittarius, another spiritual sign ruled by Jupiter. Thus during next 7 years or so there will be two modern planets transiting through the spiritual signs resulting in a phenomenal growth in world spirituality.  Mystic experiences will be norm than exceptions, and expansion of human awareness will certainly reach to unimaginable level. Science and spirituality will merge in a way we can never imagine, and for the first time in history the scientist will be involved in researching the origins and the source of development of subjective experiences.

Jupiter's transit in the sidereal zodiac sign Aquarius (April 29)

On April 29, Jupiter left (sidereal) Capricorn and entered the next zodiac sign, Aquarius.  Jupiter will stay in Aquarius till August 2, and then return to Capricorn due to its retrograde motion. It will then stay in Capricorn till December 18, and then reenters Aquarius being flexible and air sign ruled by Saturn, Jupiter in Aquarius has a tendency to enhance intellectual and philosophical qualities of those who have well placed and connected Saturn and Jupiter in their birth charts while others likely to experience the challenges that will keep them from intellectually growing. In general, transit of Jupiter in Aquarius is positive.  Spiritual and intellectual growth around the world is likely to expand. (It must be noted that despite Jupiter's positive influence on world spirituality, effects of other planets should be taken into account to assess the net effect on world growth). In addition, the influence of contemporary philosophers on society will significantly shape the future direction of our social evolution through the philosophical and metaphysical debates. In general, in Aquarius Jupiter is known to be responsible for world spiritual and intellectual expansion. So from that perspective expect some positive spiritual changes during this period and welcome the Jupiter's entry in Aquarius.

On individual levels, for those who have dominant Jupiter in their birth charts and have Sagittarius, Pisces, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, and Libra as their natal ninefold ascendant are likely to experience a very positive twelve months period.

Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine (April 26 - May 20)

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 medical, high technology and biotechnology fields. 

On 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 trine.  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!

Mars-Saturn quincunx (May 10 - 11)

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 but unavoidable 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 possibilities.

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.

Neptune-Jupiter conjunction (May 14 - July 23)

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 conjunction occurs once (actually 2-3 times with in a year's period due to their retrograde motions) in about 13-14 years. For those who have such conjunction in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle are certainly going to experience a transformation (irreversible change) of their beliefs and moral values that they 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 are going to fade away with time. 

Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square (May 14 - 27)

While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Uranus's influence on us is very sudden with intensity. 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 extreme transformation (irreversible change) in your beliefs and moral values that you have been attached to. This period is challenging.  If you overcome the challenge it's time for marching ahead with a quantum step in the process of self discovery (or evolution). 

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 are going to fade away with time. 

Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (May 22 - June 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 countries are 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.

Neptune-Uranus ninefold square (May 28 - June 25)

On an individual level, if in your birth chart Neptune squares 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 challenging configuration..  Depending on the strength of these planets and houses they occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and a totally new and a very unique experience in that particular field. Be ready to embrace this powerful, challenging and spontaneous experience. Some of the likely scenarios are unexpected move (change of residence), unexpected job change (or change of surrounding at work place), meeting a person who is going to influence your life in a very dramatic fashion, unexpected financial windfall, unexpected severe depression, finding your center that you were always wanting to, etc.  

At a collective level, the manifestation of Neptune-Uranus ninefold square will reflect in sudden change (either positive and negative) in relationship between USA and Russia (and countries of former Soviet Union), magnificent advances in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries.
