entry in the sidereal Pisces
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).
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.
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).
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.
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.
Pluto-Saturn ninefold trine (March 27 - April 5)
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 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 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
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-Saturn Opposition (April 3-4)
Mars-Saturn opposition, for no apparent reason,
changes a perfectly normal and healthy situation into the one with a severe
tension and friction. For those who have
such opposition in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets
influencing them through the current progressive cycles, they certainly need to be on
guard. Simply lay back and do nothing. If you must involve in an unwanted
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
On the world scene, a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan is very 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-Rahu ninefold opposition and Neptune-Ketu
ninefold conjunction (April 4-12)
For those, who have poor placing of Neptune-Rahu (or
Neptune Ketu) by being especially in the sixth, eighth, and the twelfth house of
their birth chart and current operating cycles are influenced by at least one of these
planets, are likely to experience instability in their daily routine caused due to sudden change in
their 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 during this one week period and stay low key.
On the collective level, social as well as economic
turmoil in Russia and China can not be ruled out. Eastern Europeans 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.
Saturn-Rahu ninefold opposition (and Ketu-Saturn
ninefold conjunction) (April 10 - 17)
The occurrence of Saturn-Rahu ninefold opposition is
not good for those who have such opposition in their birth charts. In
addition, if the lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), or Saturn is affecting you via your current
progressive chart, then you might want to consider
taking extra precautions in areas which are affected by these planets as
indicated by your natal chart. Such people should avoid taking any kind of
risk at any cost during this period. Such opposition can make things so
miserable and difficult for you that you are never going to forget them in your
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, Russia or China may experience
social or political unrest. Also, in the United State for the Republic Party and republicans it may prove to be prudent to stay on
guard during this period.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold conjunction (April 9 -
you have a Neptune-Saturn conjunction or opposition in your birth chart, and
if your current planetary operating cycle is
influenced by either of these planets, then you are likely to experience a subtle
but serious financial or social setback, or an unpleasant secret will be
revealed to you. If you are planning to take a long distance (overseas) trip
during this period, be extra careful of nasty surprises, or even being stranded
in places you never dream of.
the collective level, covert activities will be on rise. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made
calamities are very likely. Places like Russia and China are likely to
experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to
see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious
activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open.
13 - 15)
3-day period will prove to be a period of very intense negative experience for those who have
unfavorable placing of Mars with respect to Uranus in their natal charts. Expect
sudden and devastating change that will test your being. Be prepared for a
total change of surroundings around you and possibly experiencing a hostile
atmosphere around you. Be cautious and on guard since the possibilities are
limitless. For those who have well placed Uranus-Mars configurations in their
birth charts would likely to be victorious and successful in whatever the
business they are in.
On a collective level, possibility of sudden outbreak
of a new conflict affecting the United States of America can not be ruled
out. Or it could be a man-made accident or a mishandling incident by the government.
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
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!
(and Ketu) ninefold square(s) (April
22 - 27)
(and Ketu) ninefold 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 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 disappeared. 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 Obama and his administration should take extra precaution in
dealing with foreign matters. Terrorist activities are very likely to occur in
the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Israel and
Square (April 24 - 26)
square may cause great turmoil in
lives of individuals who have Pluto-Mars square in their natal charts.
Depending on the positions of these planets the matters related to the respective houses are
likely to be affected. The severity of the manifestation would be
proportional to the strength of this square in the natal chart. The sudden
or drastic change in profession or at work place are common manifestations of
collective level or on world scene, natural and man-made calamities can not be ruled out.
