September is going to be filled with lot of events that will
affect the world politics, regional politics and world religions; and we are
likely experience increased man-made and natural calamities and swings in world financial
The most important planetary configuration for September is Uranus-Saturn
opposition (September 8-21).
The Saturn-Uranus opposition occurs about once every
40-42 year. This is the third leg of the Uranus-Saturn opposition since we just
had two during last Oct 27 - Nov 14, 2008, and Jan 26 - Feb 13, 2009. During this
third leg Saturn's motion is direct, and it is in Virgo; while Uranus is retrograde in Pisces.
Thus, Uranus-Saturn opposition lies along the sidereal Virgo-Pisces axis.
Usually the Virgo-Pisces axis for both the Uranus and Saturn is creative
and positive from world evolution standpoint. However, this opposition may
become responsible for another round of challenges of economical downturn,
volatile oil prices, increased violence in the Middle-East (Iraq, Iran,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel and Palestine), political challenges for the US
president Barack Obama as well as for US lawmakers. At a subtle level, the
people's perception of life and life philosophies will go through a painful
transformation as demanded by this forceful Saturn-Uranus opposition.
Other important planetary configurations are: Neptune-Saturn
quincunx (Sept 5-18), Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunx (Sept 7-11), Neptune-Saturn
and Neptune-Uranus ninefold squares, and the auspicious Neptune-Rahu (Sept
1-14), Pluto-Rahu (Sept 9-20), and Pluto-Neptune (Sept 16 - Oct 9) ninefold
The Neptune-Saturn quincunx
cause covert activities to be on rise. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made
calamities are very likely during this period. Places like Russia and China are likely to
experience political and social turmoil.
Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunx will
manifest itself in the outbreak of violence and terrorist activities
in Middle-East, natural as well as man-made calamities, and war-like climate in
Iraq and Afghanistan. Tension between
Israelis and Palestinians will remain unabated. Some of the east-European
countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.
retrograde Mercury (Sept 7-30) will be responsible for anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays,
frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in our daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Virgo means
more frustrating periods especially for researchers, accountants, organizers,
mathematicians and business people.
and Neptune-Uranus ninefold squares will be responsible for sudden changes (either
positive and negative) in relationship between USA and Russia (and countries of
former Soviet Union) and magnificent advances in science and technology through
innovations, inventions, and discoveries.
auspicious Neptune-Rahu (Sept 1-14), Pluto-Rahu (Sept 9-20), and Pluto-Neptune
(Sept 16 - Oct 9) ninefold trines will be positive for world economical growth
and increased optimism for future all around the world.
The countries that are most likely to be affected during
month would be: United States, Russia, China, Middle-East (Iraq, Iran,
Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel), and
President Obama and his administration:
For President Obama, his operating
planet Ketu continues to be in the twelfth house of his progressive chart and in the first house
(till Sept 18) and the twelfth house of his ninefold
progressive chart during September. As a result, he
will continue to face more political as well as social challenges (both
international and domestic). Also, the sixth house Jupiter in his progressive
chart, and the first house Jupiter in his ninefold
progressive chart will not be able to provide him with the
needed energy to successfully face the
political challenges. However, the transiting Uranus's sextile
aspect with his natal Saturn will likely to help him with
his political agenda in pursuing the issues such as health
care reform and fiscal economical policies.
During the first two weeks of the month his
natal Saturn will conjunct his natal Mars and Rahu will
quincunx his natal Rahu; and therefore,
during that period he will be directly and more
boldly confronting with his adversaries will marginal success.
opposition (September 8-21) is certainly going to leave its distinct mark on US
politics, economy, social environment, and also, perhaps by
causing more natural as well as man-made calamities. In a more
subtle way it's a time for foundation of next phase of spiritual
evolution of mankind. The old norms of human behavior are
likely to be transformed to make room for future growth of
spirituality and spiritual world. Interestingly US is very
likely to assume the leadership role for the future generation
all around the world.
The Neptune-Saturn quincunx may put the
republicans on defensive during the first two weeks of the month
by not clearly justifying to American public why they oppose the
health care reforms proposed by either democrats or Obama
The retrograde Mercury (Sept 7-30) in Virgo
may become responsible for total communication breakdowns in the
political world. The Saturn-Neptune ninefold squares will be responsible for
increased fragmentation among republicans further causing
the stagnancy and failure in making any progress in the both
houses of congress and and the Neptune-Uranus ninefold
square will manifest in new advances in science and technology
through innovations and breakthroughs.
Russia: The Uranus-Saturn
opposition (September 8-21) is certainly going to create new friction between
the existing relationship between the Russia and the
western world including the USA. The Neptune-Saturn
quincunx is not favorable for Russia as it will manifest
into the chaotic political climate as well as increased
natural and man-made calamities. On the positive
note, the Saturn-Rahu ninefold trine is likely to result
in positive economic growth and political successes for
the current Russian government.
Europe: The Uranus-Saturn
opposition (September 8-21) may become responsible for major swings in European
financial markets as well as increased differences between
the USA and European countries. Similarly the
Neptune-Saturn quincunx will manifest itself with the new
religious and social challenges for the continent that the
respective bodies must deal with them. It will also be responsible for natural and man-made calamities.
China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:
Except the second and the third week, the month looks to be reasonably
favorable for China, Japan,
and other countries in the region from economical progress standpoint.
The friction between the USA and China is likely to
escalate during the second and the third week of the
month. Also, during the same period likelihood of natural or
man-made calamities is very high.
Middle East: The Uranus-Saturn
opposition (September 8-21) and the Neptune-Saturn quincunx will provide plenty
of ammunition for increased
violence in the Middle-East
region (Iran, Iraq, Israel,
Palestine, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Pakistani region)
with greater US involvement. The new religious based
crisis involving more violence and terrorism can be ruled
Religion: The Neptune-Saturn
quincunx will be responsible for increased pressure on religious authorities to
change the way they deal with people. It might
manifest itself in visible violence.
Natural and Man-made Calamities: The natural calamities like
droughts, wildfires, heavy rains, air crashes, severe weather conditions, as well as man made accidents
are more likely to occur between September 5 and 21.
Earthquakes: Based on our earthquake
the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or
higher, if occur, are likely to occur on September 8-10,
calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest,
violence, accidents, and air crashes, the natural
calamities are likely to include extreme weather
conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally
intensive droughts, hurricanes or typhoons,
thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires
