Global Prediction for April 2015
the upcoming total lunar eclipse (April 4) ........
A total lunar eclipse occurs on
April 4, approximately
during the hours
of 10:20 - 14:00 GMT. This eclipse will be visible in the western part of
American continent (Rocky Mountain region, Pacific coast of
the United States, western Canada and Mexico), pacific island regions including
Hawaii, Japan, Eastern China, Pacific-rim countries and
This eclipse is important since the Sun
and Moon will be within 4 degrees from Ketu and Rahu respectively, and therefore
will last for about 3-4 hours from the beginning to the end. The eclipse will occur with the Southern or descending node
in the sidereal zodiac sign Pisces and the ascending node Rahu in Virgo . Consequently this eclipse, according to
Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Pisces or
Virgo rising or Pisces or Virgo as moon sign.
For those who have the lunar nodes in conjunction with
either Sun or Moon in their natal charts, should watch-out. It's not a good
day! Take extra precaution and perhaps avoid any sort of outdoor activity.
On world scene, the western part of
the United Sates, western Canada, Pacific island region including Hawaii, Japan,
eastern China, Pacific-rim countries and Australia might get affected with undesirable
The Saturn-Mars (April 4-6) quincunx may
become responsible for a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan. 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.
The manifestation of the Neptune-Rahu
(April 8 - May 2) quincunx may be reflected in social and
economic turmoil in Russia.
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.
The Rahu-Mars (April 11-13) quincunx is
likely to be responsible for both natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives worldwide.
The influence of the Pluto-Rahu
ninefold quincunx (April 19 - May 2) maybe reflected in an eruption of new waves of
violence in the Palestine-Israel, Syria and Afghanistan-Pakistan regions. And perhaps,
towards the end of this period the resulting changes might become irreversible. In addition, world religions in general,
and religious leaders in particular, may experience themselves having to go
through crisis that demand changes. In other words, the orthodox religious
leaders may come under social and moral pressures to change the way they handle
The ninefold squares of Neptune with the
lunar nodes Rahu and Ketu (April 17-24) are likely to become responsible
for accelerations of secret activities all around the world
including political covert activities. Social
confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China is a real possibility.
Presently President Obama's operating planets
(the planets that influence him most) are Mercury and Jupiter. The
month begins with Mercury in sidereal Pisces (and in the 8th
house of his progressive chart). On April 12, Mercury enters
sidereal Aries (and therefore in the 9th house of his
progressive chart), and on April 27 into Taurus (the 10th house
of his progressive chart).
Since the eighth house Mercury
is favorable (political gains and success) for him, until
April 12, he is
likely to enjoy Mercury's positive energy to successfully deal with the both international
and domestic issues. However the 9th house Mercury
means obstacles, delays and confrontations, and therefore, he will have tough time
navigating through daily chores and dealing with his adversaries
until April 27. The last few days of the month,
being favorable (political gains, success, etc.,) he is likely
the month on a positive note.
The other planet,
Jupiter remains retrograde until April 9 and then becomes
stationary and direct. Jupiter is presently transiting through the 12th
house of his progressive chart, and in his ninefold progressive
chart, through the 5th house for the entire month of April. As a result, his efforts are
likely to see bearing fruits, especially after April 12th, towards immigration (12th house) bill
and possibly successful (5th house) completion of his current
efforts in international matters.
