Monthly Astrological Insights for March 2021
Date Posted: February 28, 2021
of the last month (February) were clearly dominated by the planetary
energies of the Saturn-Uranus square (especially for USA and in particularly for
Texas where the dominant square's influence vividly reflected in mishandling
and un-preparedness of Texas private energy companies by
ignoring their responsibilities
power to people), along with transformational Capricorn Pluto, crowding of
planets in Capricorn and the retrograde Mercury in Capricorn (Feb 1-21,
especially during Feb 13-21---anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays,
frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in
month of March is likely to continue witness similar events as the influence
of the Saturn-Uranus square remains dominant for USA, especially for the
west coast and Texas. The manifestation of this undesirable planetary square
(especially along with the transformational Capricorn Pluto) is likely to be reflected in both the natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives during this period
(return of Covid-19 pandemic or other new virus related crisis --Covid-19
strain, South African variant,
climate crisis, uprising in Middle-East, Russia and the United States).
Incidentally, there is a strong possibility of earthquake of large magnitude
(around 9 or so) sometimes during March, especially in the second half of
March and early April. It can happen anywhere in the world.
one looks at a deeper level to understand these events, the underlined theme
is certainly in line with Pluto's Capricorn transit that started just about
a year ago as I outlined in 2020 annual predictions (highlighted below):
era (next 19 to 20 years) will be remembered as the period of material
destruction and transformation to a new and very different way of living
that would align with our human evolution. The way we have been used
to deal with material world will no longer be our norms. Although
it's very likely that some of the world business leaders or companies will
either become obsolete or transformed into other forms, the material way
of living will be greatly influenced by our collective spiritual
experiences and subsequent understanding of the world due to Pluto's
transformational transit in Capricorn."
Saturn-Uranus Square (January
18 - July 19)
One of the most important
and deadly planetary combinations of 2021 is
the Capricorn Saturn and Aries Uranus square during January 18 thru July 19
and then during the entire month of December 2021.
being a fire and cardinal sign is very suitable for brilliant,
independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus.
The changes in
world political landscape have been
tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries (Brexit's revival, Briton intensely suffering
from Covid-19 crisis, humiliating defeat of Donald Trump despite last
ditch efforts to overturn the results and inauguration of president-elect Joe Biden as the
next President of the United States of America, etc.,).
Now combine the Uranus's energy with that
of steadfast and subtle but very powerful energy of Capricorn Saturn through
its challenging square with Uranus. It's a perfect combination for
material world disasters including the natural calamities such as a possible
outbreak and spreading of new virus . Unless these
energies are properly understood, the man-made calamities might include
increased friction between world powers (USA-Russia and China) perhaps
resulting into war-like climate.
The people who are
likely to be most
affected by this square are military personnel, people in
power such as business
leaders and political leaders. In scientific and
technological areas expect drastic changes; and emerging new ideas will
find their ways into innovations and discoveries.
Since the characteristics of Uranus are closely tied with
that of the United States as a country (especially the
states of California, Oregon and Washington) likelihood of serious natural and man-made
calamities, political and financial upheavals is very strong.
Thus, the manifestation of this undesirable planetary square is likely to be reflected in both the natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives during this period.
As far as the United States is concerned, since
characteristics of Uranus are more aligned with liberal ideas and that of Saturn
with conservatism, I wouldn't be surprised if an intense battle emerges between
the right wing republicans and the left wing democrats not only in congress but
all over the country that might last through July.
Crowding of planets in sidereal Capricorn
(January 28 thru March 10)
During Jan 28 thru Mar 10, in addition to the slow moving planets
Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter (as described above),
Sun, Venus and Mercury will join them in sidereal Capricorn. Since
Capricorn is a friendly sign for Saturn, Mercury and Venus, the resulting
activation of positive energy will certainly be reflected in events and
activities all around the world including political alliances, scientific
breakthroughs, Covid-19 under control with unprecedented vaccination
success, and hope and optimism about better future. However,
the challenges posed by the Saturn-Pluto and Saturn-Sun conjunction and their
presence in Capricorn would also be simultaneously played out in the form of
instability in global political world, perhaps due to increased friction between
powerful countries (USA, Russia and China, and also countries in the
Middle-East, particularly between Iran and Saudi Arabia and Iran and
About President Joe
Biden and his challenges.......
Joe Biden is having Dasa cycles as: Jupiter major, Rahu intermediate and Saturn
sub cycle until May 5, 2021. The planets in the Nakshatras
(constellations) ruled by Jupiter are: Jupiter and Mercury; in the Nakshatras
ruled by Rahu are: Mars and Ketu; and in the Nakshatras ruled by Saturn are Sun,
Venus and Pluto. Thus, until May 5th, the activation of energies of
Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Ketu, Sun, Venus and Pluto are expected to be reflected
in President's activities and actions. No wonder currently he is swamped with
many challenges and responsibilities that he must handle them simultaneously and
Libra as his ninefold (Navamansh) ascendant, Jupiter is in the 4th house of his
Gochar (transit) chart, Mercury in the 4th till March 11and then in the 5th
house till the end of the month; Mars in the 8th and Ketu in the 2nd house, Sun
in the 5th till March 14 and then in the 6th, Venus in the 5th till March 16 and
then in the 6th and Pluto in the 4th house of his Gochar chart.
their Gochar chart dispositions, Jupiter will be favorable for him till March 19
in achieving quite a few goals that he has set out to do, and these likely to
needs such as Covid-19 vaccinations, distribution of stimulus money to needy,
schools opening, and perhaps immigration related matters. After March 19, he may
face stagnation due to obstacles that he may not have control over to carry out
his task. Mercury on the other hand will be favorable for him until March 11 in
dealing with crisis, but afterwards, he will face new difficulties in dealing
with on-going crisis. Sun and Venus will be fairly favorable for him for his
house Gochar Mars will be a real challenge for him through the entire month. In
dealing with congress, both the republicans and democratic alike, he will be
seriously challenged to advance his agenda for getting things done.
However, with continued efforts he will ultimately achieve at least a reasonable
amount of success if not everything he wanted.
it's a very intensive month for him as he must face challenges on several fronts
simultaneously and expeditiously. It's a mixed picture, but he is likely to
overcome most of his challenges with a reasonable success.
important challenging planetary configurations
for March include:
(Feb 7 - March 2) square; Saturn-Jupiter (March 14-18)
and Neptune-Jupiter (March 19-22) ninefold squares; Rahu-Mars (March 27-29)
conjunction and Neptune-Saturn (March 26 - April 10) ninefold conjunction.
The manifestation of
(Feb 7 - Mar 2) square maybe reflected in social and political turmoil
in the United States, Russia and China as well as
tensions rising among these countries.
Saturn-Jupiter (March 14-18) ninefold square may
become responsible for challenges that religions around the world
would likely to face as they find difficulties in carrying out their
activities, dealing with controversies that test
traditional moral values. And in general, religious
authorities will have difficulty in keeping people
challenges posed by the Neptune-Jupiter
(March 19-22) ninefold square may mean world religions are likely to
be faced with earthshaking ideas. Those 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.
of the Rahu-Mars (March 27-29) conjunction may be reflected in both natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise
of an international level political leader.
Neptune-Saturn (March 26 - April 10) ninefold conjunction may
become responsible for rise in covert activities. 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.
important auspicious planetary configurations for
March include Pluto-Saturn
(March 8-16) ninefold trine and Pluto-Jupiter (March 31 - April 2) ninefold
The manifestation of the
(March 8-16) ninefold trine
be reflected in 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.
(March 31 - April 2) ninefold trine may become responsible for new and positive changes
occurring in religious, academic and social fields.
The countries that
are more likely to be affected during this month are: United States, Russia, China,
Europe and Middle-East (Iraq, Iran,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia
and Palestine-Israel regions).
