Influence of planets on Individuals for February 2015
Date Posted: January 31, 2015
 

    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.  

Retrograde Mercury (Jan 22 - Feb 12) 

On January 22, the planet Mercury became retrograde in sidereal Capricorn. It will stay retrograde in Capricorn until February 12. Typically the influence of the retrograde Mercury is reflected in anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Capricorn means more frustrating periods for people in business, constructions, architects, politicians and diplomats. This is the time not to start a new project or venture, but rather reflect on what's been done so far.  Also, this is the best time to cleanup that closet and do other chores that you have been postponing due to lack of time.

In addition, if you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart and if Mercury is currently your operating planet, then you are more likely to experience the pronounced effects of retrograde Mercury during this period with respect to matters signified by the house it's transiting in your progressive chart

Pluto-Uranus square (November 22 - April 6)

On an individual level, if in your birth chart Pluto makes a square with 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 square.  Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and a totally new and a very unpleasant experience in that particular field. Be ready to face this unwanted experience. Stay alert and try not to start a new venture that requires taking risk. It's like you are on a business trip or company assignment and you are immediately called off or caught in a situation that you find very difficult if not impossible to get out. 

At a collective level, the Pluto-Uranus square could bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that is likely to become responsible for a change in the current political agenda and foreign policy matters of the Obama administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the Obama administration could get tangled with.

Uranus-Rahu opposition (and Uranus/Ketu conjunction)  (Jan 19 - Feb 10)

Uranus-Rahu opposition occurs approximately once every fifteen years.  If in your birth chart Uranus is in the direct opposition with the lunar node Rahu, and if any one of these two planets are influencing you now via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in your professional and financial areas during this period. Staying low key is certainly the way to go.  This opposition can become dangerous, and ruin your plans and bring about the unexpected disaster in every which way.  In short, during this period you have been tested. If you have very strong and positively placed lunar nodes and Uranus in your birth chart, then perhaps you need not worry.

On a collective level, the United States, and in particular, the Republic Party and republicans are likely to run into some very difficult period. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (Jan 20 - Feb 4)

Saturn-Uranus ninefold square is unfavorable for you if you have such a square or opposition in your birth chart. 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.  You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period.  Such square or 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 a social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising between them. 

Saturn-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (Jan 28 - Feb 1)

Saturn-Rahu (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 will 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 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 turmoil in Europe and Russia is likely. Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.

Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (Feb 1-7)

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 collective level, social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out.  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.

Pluto-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Feb 16 - March 14)

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.

Pluto-Jupiter quincunx (Feb 20 - March 6)

This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This quincunx could become responsible for a unique stalemate in the field of religion as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power to oppose and eventually transform religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. 

In your birth chart if Jupiter and Pluto are either in quincunx or opposition, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are perhaps standing on the thresh-hold of a new era that's about to begin in your life. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new and a very different experience in that particular field. Be ready to accept this new settings with new challenges as well as the rewards that come with them.

On a collective level, religious and academic and to some extent social fields are very likely to see changes coming in their respective fields.

Uranus-Jupiter trine (Feb 20 - March 6)

This auspicious and inspirational trine of Jupiter with Uranus is excellent for academic, research oriented knowledge seekers.  Especially it's important since Uranus resides in the sidereal Pisces, a sign ruled by Jupiter.  In addition, this trine is good for all world religions as well as for people who are engaged in activities that help us expand morally, socially as well as materially.  

For those who have well placed Jupiter and Uranus in their birth chart (conjunction, trine, sextile, opposition) are likely to have spiritual experiences during this period.  People involved in the spiritual and humanitarian activities are likely experience a sudden boost in their daily activities, and religious authorities who are more open to new ideas and people's concerns are going to be well recognized by societies.

On a collective level, spiritual, religious, academic, and social fields are very likely to enjoy the new and positive changes occurring in their respective fields.

Pluto-Rahu ninefold trine (and Pluto-Ketu sextile) (Feb 27 - March 7)

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. Such positive events will be related to the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspect. For example, if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in relationship area, or business partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involved it may financially prove to be a very rewarding period. 

On a collective level, this is a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (Feb 28 - March 5)

Saturn-Uranus ninefold square is unfavorable for you if you have such a square or opposition in your birth chart. 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.  You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period.  Such square or 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 a social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising between them.
