(Updated Oct 2009)
Updated 15 Sep 2009
There is a very stressful period from 17th Oct 2009 till 7th June 2010 for those of you born in the 60’s (lot of Hollywood actors) as well as the 20’s age group (Age of the Golden Movies but they are rather old and have to be careful of heart anyways and stress related illnesses).
This transit reduce the immune system of the body and you will probably hear much more of the scandals, out of wedlock pregnancies and other nightmares from this age group. They are also more prone to stress related illnesses including the flu and generally need to be careful of setting themselves up for nightmare scenarios. Be extra careful when signing any documents, investing in stocks on incorrect advice,
Those of you who are born in and the 40’s and 50's as well as teenagers born in the 80's will go through the same period in Sep 2009. The older folks will have to be careful of fraud and scandals whereas the younger generation has to be careful of drinking and driving as well as dental or knee related problems.
As we mentioned under Pluto in Capricorn in World Events menu, major reconstruction of old buildings and bridges are probably already on the table of most countries. Major Archaeological finds is also one of the forecasts we made as Capricorn rules buildings and stone, and Pluto here points to ancient structures being discovered around the world but probably mostly in the Middle East and Jerusalem (religious places as Pluto is moving away fro Sagittarius, the sign of religion).
As Mars moves into Leo from 17th Oct 2009 till 7th June 2010 along with some other aspects (whenever it opposes Jupiter it will make it even more lucrative), the price of gold will skyrocket although there will be a lot of pressure from the bank cartels to keep it down which will make it a bit volatile as well. If you are born in the 60s, then you will have to be extra careful when you buy but it will most likely be much higher than what it is now. However, mid Dec 2009 till beg Mar 2010 will be a very volatile period for gold as the bank cartel becomes more aggressive in trying to suppress gold prices, and China, Iran and Russia try to get rid of US dollars in dealing with oil. Mars will be retrograde in Leo during this entire period.
Mars in Leo aspecting Neptune from time to time from later Oct 2009 till beg June 2010 will reflect strife in the royal households in the Middle East as well as most likely in England. Prince Phillip is also affected during this transit and anyone with heart problems has to be especially careful.
Hamid Karzai has major threats to his life late Oct till end of Nov 2009, mid Jan till mid Feb 2010, and end of Apr till mid May 2010. Mars conjuncts his Uranus which is an aspect of freak accidents to the head and spine. it is affecting his whole generation in fact (he was born Dec 24, 1957).
From Oct 2009 till beg June 2010 is a scandalous and very stressful period for President Ahmadinejad of Iran. however, he is also getting some fantastic aspects for negotiations and international contracts till end Feb 2010 which will help him in his ability to convince the rest of the world of his plans for nuclear energy. The stress he will experience is for the 60s age group which includes betrayals, leaks, false accusations, and a general mentally stressful period.
Be careful of delays in all forms of communication and transportation from 26 Dec 2009 to 15 Jan 2010. Mercury will be retrograde during this period and you can expect delays in all forms of communication. Other things to be careful of are: forgetfulness, keys getting lost, accidentally erasing your email addresses, leaving cheques in your shirt pocket and giving them to the cleaners! Telephone line being disconnected (pay your bills right away!), overwriting or erasing important files on your computer by mistake (it only takes seconds!), mailing to a wrong address and not following it up, running out of gas, missing appointments etc. This is an excellent time to go back over your existing work and finish any research rather than to start new projects. Be careful of buying gadgets now or they will give problems or require a lot of repairs. Sign your contracts before or after this period. You will have to be careful of starting any new activity as it is most likely to run into obstacles and delays especially if it involves communication, gadgets, computers, meetings and deadlines. Treaties and negotiations usually break down under this transit as well.
There will be major restructuring of the manufacturing industry and corporations around mid Jan 2010 as five planets move into Capricorn!
Roman Polanski, the talented film director, has Mars squaring his
Saturn in Nov 2009, Jan 2010 and Apr 2010. This indicates major legal
hassles and actually almost on a continuous basis as Mars is
retrograding in Leo opposing his Saturn from his 9th and 10th house.
This indicates strife with legal authority and restructuring in career
indicating negative publicity. His best chance is from mid Nov 2009
till mid Jan 2010 when he has Jupiter trining his Mars (travel and
sudden luck) and Uranus as well (windfall configuration) but this is a
very short duration of luck. Of course, this can mean travel for the
wrong reasons as well!
I think his time of birth is slightly off and Mars will be retrograde in his 9th house mainly which is a aspect of legal hassles and trouble from foreign countries. We will keep an eye on it for those of you interested in astrological analysis and keep you posted so you can see how these transits affect those in the public eye.
The brilliant film director who was awarded many Academy Awards for his films, had Mars in his 5th house when he took the photographs with the Aries 13 year old. Although it doesn't justify his behavior but still it is interesting that she was born with Venus in Pisces, the most seductive placement for Venus, and wasn't even wearing a bra underneath her top when she went out for the photo shoot. This was before he even asked her to pose nude or anything. He has Venus in Virgo which is rather a submissive placement for a man but Mars in his 5th and her Venus in Pisces may have contributed to his getting carried away. In order to hide her guilt, she went along with it also and that is why she doesn't want this to go on. Mars in Leo (film industry) reflects the high profile scandal again in the tabloids fro quite some time (same timing as gold prices being volatile!).
