Monthly Prediction for March 2001
Date Posted: February 28, 2000
 
    4) Comments for the previous month's predictions:

Comments for the last month's predictions (For those who are interested in following up last month's predictions against the actual events):

                    What's in planetary configurations for this month ?

      The month of February is very likely to be positive and productive for most of the world. The first week, however, will continue with crisis pertaining to violence, terrorism, severe weather conditions, faltering economy, and in general, a lot of anxiety about the future. But starting with the second week (about Feb 6) the positive influence of the Uranus-Saturn trine and the absence of any significant square during the rest of the month will make things lot normal and even positive. Expect the financial markets to bounce back, the political crisis to wind down, the economies getting back to normal, and the general negativism about the future running its course. The major planetary configurations that are likely to influence this month are:

      The ninefold trine between the planet Uranus and Saturn, providing a positive energy for creativity and productivity, begins on February 6 and will last through March 16. Similarly the Pluto-Uranus trine (Feb 19 - March 8) will provide additional boost to economic expansion as well as for general social well being, thus keeping most part of the world out of unwanted crisis and tension.  

      The Pluto-Jupiter ninefold sextile (Feb 1-17) will bring harmony between various religious factions, and perhaps a new idea in the religious world will take root that would transform the religious perspective to a whole new level of understanding and thus, providing a new meaning to religion.

      The Pluto-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Feb 19 - March 7) may become responsible for man-made as well as natural calamities. Also, this conjunction is likely to provide fuel for a potential breakout of a political crisis in countries like Russia and China.

    • United States: Except for the first week in February, Bush administration is likely  to make significant progress in carrying out its political agenda. However, in doing so, the administration is likely to make generous compromises with Democrats making some key conservative members in the Republican Party disappointed. 

      From the third week (Feb 19-28) onwards the Bush administration is going to face some serious political as well as international challenges. However, I expect the administration to succeed in overcoming those challenges. The United States may have to deal with crisis born out of natural accidents.

      In general, compared to the month of January, February faired better on the world political scene.  President George W. Bush overcame the difficulties of handling Iraq bombings and other international crisis, and to a reasonable degree was successful in driving his tax-cut agenda through the congress and the senate.

    •         Russia: The first three days in February may prove to be crucial for Russia as she will be dealing with political and economical instability coupled with riots. Furthermore, during February 5 - 13 period the government's ability to govern will be seriously tested, and it is very likely to be failed.  The relationship with the USA, however, is likely to improve during February 14-18. During the last couple of weeks of February (Feb 19-28) Russia needs to be careful in handling domestic crisis and social unrest. 

      Have no idea what went on in Russia in February.  Wonder the  above predictions make any sense. 

              China, Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries:  China is likely to continue to have to face the political, social and economical problems during the first week of the month. Although February 6-13 period seems favorable for China it still needs to be careful in dealing with people unrest. The last two weeks of the month will bring more domestic problems, and from political standpoint the prospects of having success in dealing with these problems do not look good. From economic standpoint, the entire pacific-rim region, China, Japan, and Hong Kong are likely to experience some recovery with better growth prospects.   

      Although politically I'm not sure what's going on there, economically the Pacific-rim region slowly but surely making some progress.

              Europe:  Except for the first week, the month of February, in general, will turn out to be a lot better compared to the last month from political as well as economy standpoint. Expect rising trade between the USA and Europe. Euro currency will regain its position in the world markets. The last couple of weeks are probably not that good.  During that time a possibility of a political crisis as well as an outbreak of natural disasters is likely.

      I really don't have to make any comment. Do you?

              Religion:  In general, religious activities worldwide are going to expand. New initiatives or ideas are likely to take roots and transform the current religious perspectives to a whole new level of understanding. The positive periods for religion are:  February 2-4, February 6-17.  The religious authorities are more likely to be ready for consideration of new and liberal ideas. In the last week of February expect some friction between the religious authorities and people with new initiatives and ideas resulting in a state of confusion.

      Wasn't it during February Pope John Paul named some additional cardinals?  Wonder if that event has any linkage whatsoever to above predictions.

              Natural and Man-made Calamities: Until February 5, the Saturn-Rahu and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares and Saturn-Mars opposition are likely to become cause for man-made as well as natural calamities and accidents around the world.  In addition, the Saturn-Pluto ninefold conjunction (Feb 19-March 7) probably will add to these calamities. Although it is very difficult to predict the geographic locations for man-made and natural calamities, the possibility of those occurring in Europe, Russia, Mid-East, and Indian subcontinent are more likely.

            While man-made calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest, violence, and accidents, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters in the northern hemisphere, and equally intensive droughts in the southern hemisphere; and thunderstorms, earthquakes, air crashes and fires.

      The second earthquake in the Central American region (I believe it's in El Salvador) occurred around Feb 19.  Also, the missile crash into the Japanese fishing boat occurred during February...don't remember the date.  

          World Financial Markets

    Economies around the world are expected to feel the pinch of rapid slow down.  However, astrologically, the future direction of the world financial markets look to be promising during February. Although markets will continue to show pockets of high volatilities the general trend as we move through the third week of the month is going to be bullish.

    It must be noted that the basis for the following predictions mainly includes the influence of the planets Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars along with the slower moving modern planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. For the ninefold analysis, the fast moving planets like Mercury, Venus, Sun, and Moon can also influence the outcome of the world markets. However, these influences, although usually insignificant, are difficult to account for as the analysis then becomes too complex to make market predictions.  Therefore, should it become necessary to account for the influence of fast moving planets the timely advanced updates whenever appropriate will be provided.

    February 1 - 3:  Very volatile and trending bearish

    February 4 - 5: Bearish

    February 6 - 8: Mixed

    February 9 - 13: Mixed to bullish

    February 14 - 18: Bullish

    February 19 - 22: Bullish to mixed

    February 23 - 26: Mixed

    February 27 - 28: Mixed to bullish

    Overall the actual market performance turned out to be more bearish than predicted. In particular, February 19-26 period turned out to be more bearish than mixed, and only a couple of days were marginally bullish. In retrospect the influence of the retrograde Mercury was far more pronounced than I anticipated.
