As you've described it, nothing will happen.
The Superiors when they go on Station can be there 18 hours to 3 days. In a progressed chart, that translates into 18 months to 3 years. The Inferiors are usually never on Station more than 48 hours, which translates into a max of 2 years in a progressed chart.
Unless the progressed Planet goes stationary conjunct a Natal Planet (and we're talking an orb of 15 minutes to 30 minutes of arc) or occasionally in aspect to another Natal Planet, you won't see anything.
Progressions do not show actual events, rather they only show where the focus is for whatever that Planet signifies in your Natal Chart (and Planets don't always signify the same things for all people -- that is Mercury in your chart might signify wealth, but in someone else's chart it might signify health, or death, or their siblings, or career or religion/philosophy etc or their enemies, or friends or children etc).
