Comments on General Global Predictions of
the last month
is going to be dominated by Pluto-Rahu opposition (and Pluto-Ketu
conjunction). Such opposition occurs once in about 17-18 years. What it means? Well, for one thing,
since this opposition involves the war-sign Scorpio (sidereal), the Mid-East
conflict is very likely to get uglier, especially during July 23-Aug
10 period. In addition, during the same period, a new wave of
terrorism will likely to sweep Europe, USA, and some part of Asia.
To top the things conflict
between India and Pakistan will again intensify during the same time
every day since July 23, there has been news from Israel and Palestine about
suicide bombings or killings or retaliation where civilians were killed in
Israel and Palestine. In the USA the major news of corporate crime took
the front seat. Although it's very difficult to predict news of corporate
crime but it surely falls under the realm of Pluto-Rahu opposition occurring
in the earth sign Taurus (business) and Pluto-Ketu conjunction in the
mysterious and dubious sign Scorpio (criminal). We may see more negative
surprises in the business and corporation world before August 10. India -
Pakistan conflict, although hasn't accelerated yet, the possibility still
exists till August 10.
Major planetary configurations that are likely to influence the world events during
July are: Rahu-Pluto opposition and Ketu-Pluto conjunction
(July 23-Aug 10), Pluto-Saturn (July 30-Aug 5) ninefold square, and
Neptune-Saturn (July 14-20), Pluto-Saturn (July 6-11), and Saturn-Ketu
(July 12-16) ninefold trines. While all the three ninefold trines
are favorable for world prosperity and stability around the world the influence of
opposition, conjunction and square will overshadow the trines. In
addition, On July 4, Mercury transit occurs in the sidereal zodiac
sign Gemini, and both the Mars and Jupiter transits occur in Cancer.
Also, Saturn enters the sidereal Gemini on July 21.
The countries that are likely to make headline news
are: Israel, Palestine, Pakistan, India, United States and some part
The terrorist activities (suicide bombings, etc.) and subsequent
retaliation will likely to accelerate towards the last week of the month
and continue through the next month.
every day since July 23, there has been news from Israel and
Palestine about suicide bombings or killings or retaliation where
civilians were killed in Israel and Palestine.
a positive note, Russia, China, and some of the pacific-rim countries
(Japan and Korea in particular) are likely to enjoy more peaceful
and prosperous time with increased and positive influence in world
politics. Again this month, technological areas are likely to experience significant progress via inventions and
discoveries. Religious activities in the USA will likely to find the much needed
of America: For the latter half of the month the entire
country is going to be intensely focusing on the on-going suicidal
bombings around the world due to a fresh wave of terrorism, and
the raging conflict between the Israel and Palestinians.
Especially during July 23 - August 10 time period Bush
administration will be under intense international as well as
domestic political pressure to resolve the crisis.
Bush has been under intense pressure in dealing with corporate
criminals since his administration has been perceived to be a
biased to businesses and corporations. Vice President Mr. Cheney's
investigation into his business dealings in the past makes it
difficult for the Bush administration to handle the issue of
corporate crime with a fair degree of credibility.
For President Bush, he may experience that
the support for his policies (both foreign and domestic) is on
decline, and because of very close Pluto-Ketu conjunction in the
ninefold ascendant of his birth chart, he has no choice but to
directly face the challenges and find answers soon. I don't know how
he's going to perform, but it would prove to be very prudent that
he takes care of his health and safety during that time.
Republic Party will
find itself in a very precarious situation in holding on to its
agenda and the same time support the President. As a result, a
drift between the conservatives and the moderate republicans will
be growing. For the Democratic Party, except
for the third week of the month, the month doesn't look so bad.
the entire month is likely to be very positive for Russia for its international
the same period Russia's likely to make a lot of progress
with its domestic economy. Mr. Putin and his administration will
be handsomely rewarded for their successful efforts both
domestically and internationally.
China, Hong Kong, and
Pacific-rim countries: China may experience
social or political turmoil during the last two weeks of the month. But from
economy standpoint, China and most of the Pacific-rim region
(particularly Japan and Korea) is likely to enjoy positive period.
Europe: For the entire continent July
doesn't look good. Economical conditions may
suffer due to unavoidable circumstances caused by either or both
natural and man-made calamities. In addition, terrorist activities
will be on rise causing a fearful and uncertain atmosphere.
and Pakistan: For the subcontinent the month of
July (especially July 23-Aug 10) is not favorable from peace and
stability standpoint. The
tension along the border and cross-border terrorism will be on
rise again causing the concern of a potential threat of nuclear
war between these two countries. For Pakistani President the time
is not very favorable as he would be surrounded by more
adversaries than friends.
During the third week of the month churches in the united states
will be again on defensive in dealing with morality issues. In
general, however, religious leaders in other part of the world
will have easy time in carrying out their activities and agenda.
Although such calamities can occur during the entire month anywhere in the world,
the more likely period, in my opinion, will be the one from July
23 - August 10. The areas that are
more prone for such causes are: the United States, Europe, Israel, Palestine, India, and Pakistan along with some of the other Middle
have been several major weather related catastrophes all around
the world (for more than monthly average) such as, wildfires in
the western part of the United States, train accidents in Europe
and USA, flooding in Texas, air crashes in Russia and China,
etc. all occurred during July.
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, and equally intensive droughts; and thunderstorms, earthquakes, air
Comments on the last month's World Financial Markets
For the world financial markets,
the overall picture for the month of July looks mixed. The month is likely to
begin with positive mood but as it wears on and gets closer to its end the
markets are likely to enter in bearish territory. In general, the planetary configurations that are going to
financial markets are: Pluto-Rahu ninefold regular and ninefold oppositions, and Pluto-Saturn ninefold square will influence markets to
become very volatile and bearish. However, Neptune-Saturn, Pluto-Saturn ninefold trines and
Ketu-Jupiter ninefold opposition will provide favorable atmosphere for the world financial
markets to rise.
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.
Mixed to bullish
8-10: Mixed to bearish
21-22: Mixed to bearish
July the financial predictions in general were poor. All the major market
indices though recovered considerably, ended the month with losses (ranging from
3 to 6 %.) The predictions for the first half of the month were pretty
much in-line with the markets. But the last two weeks were off-base. The
influence of Ketu-Pluto conjunction turned out to be far more positive than
