Influence of planets on Individuals for November 2018
Date Posted: October 31, 2018
 

    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 be applicable.  

Retrograde Venus (October 6 - November 16)

On October 6, the planet Venus turned retrograde in its motion in sidereal zodiac sign Libra. And it will stay retrograde till November 16 in Libra. Venus becomes retrograde about once every 19 months, and stays retrograde for about six weeks.  In general, a retrograde Venus in Libra means a very challenging period for women, marriages, home life, lovers, entertainment industries.  Expect the divorce rates to peak, fighting between spouses to intensify, and delays, frustrations, and misunderstandings to take a center-stage in domestic matters. If you have a dominating Venus in your birth chart, and if your current planetary cycle influences your life via Venus then you are more likely to experience the effects of the retrograde Venus till November 16. The entertainers like actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, movie directors and producers may find themselves in a miserable situation during the retrograde Venus period especially if they are currently being influenced by Venus through their current progressive cycles.

Retrograde Mercury (Nov 17 - Dec 7) 

On November 17, the planet Mercury becomes retrograde in sidereal Scorpio. It will stay retrograde in Scorpio until December 7. Typically retrograde Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Scorpio means more frustrating periods for people in military, surgeons, sportsmen and people in politics in general, and particularly for those who are in governments, academic area and researchers. 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 currently transiting through in your progressive chart.

Uranus-Rahu (and Ketu) square(s) (Sept 29 - Dec 29)

Uranus-Rahu (and Ketu) squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have such squares in their natal charts.  Expect sudden loss of money, power, demotions at work place and/or tarnished reputation in professional and social fields. 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 very careful. The best thing to do is not to make any new commitment, and totally avoid taking any business or monetary risk. Remember the time when you felt financially very secured, happy with family, and suddenly the landscape turned against you and everything disappears. Well, if not exactly this way but something like this has a good potential to happen (again) ...be careful!

On a collective level, United States and particularly the President Trump and his administration should take extra precaution in dealing with foreign matters. This is a long three month period, and it's likely to be filled with lot of anxieties and uncertainties culminating into the capitulation of the current state of politics. In addition, terrorist activities are likely to occur in the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Israel and Palestine). 

Neptune-Uranus ninefold sextile (Oct 1-Nov 2)

Uranus-Neptune ninefold sextile 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.

Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx (Nov 1-14)

If you have a Neptune-Rahu quincunx (with either of these planets being especially in the sixth, eighth, or the twelfth house) in your 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 deceptive 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 and very watchful 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.

Uranus-Jupiter quincunx (Nov 3-13)

While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Uranus's influence on us is very sudden and intense. If you have this quincunx 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 period of self inquiry confrontation requiring for you to very closely pay attention to your own self. Of course, it's up to you to deal with this process  and courageously and spiritually transform by understanding yourself better or escape from it to have to go through the similar frustration (experience) again in future. It also means you have the opportunity to transform (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. The 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.

Rahu-Jupiter trine and Ketu Jupiter sextile (Nov 5-12)

Jupiter-Rahu trine is favorable for those who have such trine in their natal charts.  A proper balance between the optimism and conservatism will protect you from becoming over optimistic (or aggressive) as well as over protective.  If you have such a trine in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you are likely to enjoy this period with full vigor and success as it would seem to come to you naturally. So enjoy! 

On a collective level, religions around the world will enjoy their activities with positive experiences.  People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

Pluto-Saturn ninefold trine (Nov 7-15)

If through your current progressive chart, influence of either Pluto or Saturn is active and if Pluto is favorably positioned with respect to Saturn in your natal chart, expect a very favorable time during this period. Such a positive period will be related to the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspects. For example if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in a relationship, 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 European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

Mars-Rahu quincunx (Nov 13-15)

During this period Mars quincunxes Rahu.  Typically Mar's quincunx with a lunar node is very unfavorable and unfortunate situation in general.  If you have such a quincunx or opposition in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these planets influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you need be very careful about the matters indicated by the respective houses in your birth chart.  Probably the best thing to do is to lay low key, not make any new commitment and avoid taking any sort of risk.  

On the world scene, during this period both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader are likely.

Uranus-Saturn ninefold sextile (Nov 14-18)

Uranus-Saturn ninefold sextile is going to be favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts.  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. However don't neglect your family during this busy time. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period.  It's time to jump in and enjoy this period.

On a collective level, religious activities all around the world are likely to expand with new vigor and energy and conservatives will find ways to compromise with liberals on sticky issues. Democrats and Republicans will agree on more matters than the ones they disagree.  This is a good time to get those lingering bills passed in U.S. Congress and Senates. China and Russia are likely to experience some mild setbacks in their foreign policies, especially the ones that deal with the United States.

Pluto-Uranus ninefold opposition (Nov 17-27)

On an individual level, if in your birth chart Pluto opposes 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 opposition.  Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a sudden and a totally new and 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 off guard in a situation that you find very difficult if not impossible to get out. 

At a collective level, the Pluto-Uranus ninefold opposition 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 also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Trump 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 Trump administration could get tangled with.

Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine (Nov 20-26)

If you have a well placed Neptune in your birth chart and is in trine with Saturn, and if you are presently being influenced by any of these planets (Neptune or Saturn) through their current operating cycles, then you are likely to experience a very positive period in the areas signified by the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart. Strong intuitive power, very positive environment, and in general, feeling great about yourself and everything around you are some of the symptoms that you are likely to enjoy.

Collectively on a global scene, this period is very positive for Russia and China. In addition, most of the technological areas, especially in medical field, are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.

Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu ninefold squares (Nov 21-29)

The ninefold 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 passed. 

On a collective level, a new wave of renewed violence in Syria, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestinians, as well as outbreak of terrorism around the world during these days are real possibilities.

Saturn-Jupiter ninefold sextile (Nov 24-29)

Jupiter-Saturn ninefold sextile is favorable for those who have such sextile in their natal charts.  A proper balance between the optimism and conservatism will protect you from becoming over optimistic (or aggressive) as well as over protective.  If you have such sextile in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you are likely to enjoy this period with full vigor and success as it would seem to come to you naturally. So enjoy! 

On a collective level, religions around the world will enjoy their activities with positive experiences.  People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith.
