Dhaka, Bangladesh (CNN)Not even in his wildest dreams did Abul Bajandra think he would live to see this day. Lying on a hospital bed at Dhaka Medical College, Bangladesh's so-called "Tree Man" is just hours away from the first round of surgery that will hopefully change his life for the better. He is suffering from an extremely rare genetic condition known as Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis, or "Tree Man" disease, which causes extreme wart-like lesions across the body.

Solar eclipses are linked to the beginning of new chapters in our lives. And they become active long before they are actually due. We are now in the shadow of the upcoming solar eclipse of March 9. A chart for the eclipse at Dhaka has the powerful T-square of Uranus-Pluto-TNP Zeus on the angles. What cannot be seen in the chart is the asteroid Terpsichore [12li] on the descendant with the TNP Zeus [17li] and square Pluto [17cn]. Among other things Terpsichore rules “body image”. It is chiefly related to “the flexor muscles and the ability to move”. When combined with Pluto one may experience “powerlessness through a loss of agility, co-ordination or movement”. More positively, it can also give rise to “surgeries affecting co-ordination and/or body image” .
