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 Venus (October 11 - Nov 21)
October 11, the planet Venus becomes retrograde in its motion in
sidereal zodiac sign Libra. Venus becomes
retrograde about once every 19 months, and stays retrograde for about six
general, a retrograde Venus 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 from October 11 to November 21. The entertainers like actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, movie
directors and producers may
find themselves in a miserable situation during the retrograde Venus period
they are currently being influenced by Venus through their current progressive
Retrograde Saturn (October 11 - February 22)
Saturn becomes retrograde on October 11 and stays retrograde till February 22,
2003.. For those who have a well placed Saturn in their birth charts and
if Saturn's period is currently in operation, then they are likely to experience
slow progress. Best way to deal with retrograde Saturn is to put more energy in
to whatever you do to work towards your goal.
the world scene, generally, the projects that deal with expansion are likely to
either stay on hold or experience sluggish progress. In religious world,
things are likely to move at frustratingly slow rate. In the political arena what may seem like progress
will turn out to be a disaster.
Retrograde Mercury (Sept 15 - Oct 7)
On September15, the planet Mercury became retrograde in its
motion. It will stay retrograde in the sidereal zodiac sign Virgo until October 7.
Typically retrograde Mercury means unexpected delays, frustrations,
missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores.
Retrograde Mercury in Virgo, in general, means more frustrating periods for
businesses (small businesses as well as corporations), professionals in academic
field, and people in entertainment industry.
In addition, for those
who deal with law enforcement, diplomats, teachers, farmers, accountants,
columnists, editors, publishers, comedians, and ambassadors are more likely to
experience the negative aspect of the retrograde Mercury. Also, if you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart, and if
your current planetary cycle provides the results of Mercury then you are more
likely to experience the effects of retrograde Mercury during this period.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold trine (and Uranus-Ketu sextile)
(Sept 3 - Oct 5)
If through your current progressive chart influence of
either Uranus or lunar node is active and if Uranus is favorably positioned with
respect to lunar nodes in your natal chart expect a very favorable time during
September. Such positive events will be related to
the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspects. For example
if the seventh house is involved, expect rapid positive development in your
existing or new relationships, or business partnerships, or success in capturing
the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involved September
may financially prove to be a very rewarding month
On a collective level, this is a good period for the
United States as the differences between the republicans and democrats will
narrow and there will be more willingness to get something new accomplished.
Also, international relations between USA and its allies will improve. This
period (Sept 3 - Oct 5) is also good for progress in technical fields (new
innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (Sept 24 - Oct 11)
On a collective level, the Pluto-Uranus square could
influence the way the Bush administration deals with other nations with respect
to it's war against terrorism agenda. Unless Bush administration comes up with a
totally new approach (transformation of the present approach) in dealing with
its policy to oust present regime in Iraq, President Bush will face an uphill
battle to carryout his agenda. During September 24-Oct 11 period I expect a lot
of foreign matter related activities that U.S. government is going to be busy
with. Expect some very serious issues that the Bush administration is going
to be tangled with.
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 working hard and in the middle of a
project, and suddenly you have to call the project off due to circumstances
beyond your control.
Saturn-Mars square (Oct 12 - 15)
Watch-out for these 3-4 days in October for a possible
sudden and undesirable happenings in your life if you have such square in your
birth chart. It could be a sudden loss of money, unfortunate accident, or
a bad news. Only thing I suppose you could do is to be prepared and avoid taking
in new risk during that time.
On a collective level, natural and man-made calamities
are likely, especially in the Europe and Asia.
