general, in February expect more stable and
prosperous environment around most of the world. For United
States, however, the first week of February (Feb 2-9) is not good,
and negative forces caused due to Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction (and
Uranus-Ketu ninefold opposition) are likely to manifest in one or
more of these forms: terrorism, political
instability, scandals, a huge natural calamity, or a fearful
environment. The countries that are likely to make headline news
are: USA, Pakistan, Israel and Palestine, and possibly China. February
is likely to be overwhelmed with very positive news in the area of scientific and technological
research, social reforms, improved relations between the United
States and Russia as well as China. However religious crisis are
likely to creep up, especially in the United States.
major planetary configurations that are likely to play key roles for
world events during February are: Rahu-Pluto (Feb 7-9),
Neptune-Jupiter (Feb 12-22) ninefold trines, Uranus-Rahu (until Feb
15), and Neptune-Saturn (until Feb 13) regular trines, Uranus-Rahu ninefold
conjunction (Feb 2-9). Except for the last one, these configurations are
positive for the entire world.
administration, February 2-9 period is not favorable, and
therefore it needs to be extra careful in dealing with both the
international (Afghanistan-Pakistan) and domestic affairs (Enron
and Democrats). After February 9, it should experience relatively
favorable time, and will have a reasonable degree of success in
whatever the administration does. During the first week of
February a sudden shift in foreign policy is likely, and changes
in administration personnel cannot be ruled out. Again this month,
the administration as well as the Republic Party in
general is likely to face political obstacles that they must deal
with. On a positive note, US
involvement as a
broker in providing a meaningful solution to Israel and
Palestinian on their ongoing conflict will have some success. The violence
between the Israelis and Palestinians, at least temporarily, is
likely to taper off.
For Democratic Party, the
month looks positive.
Russia: February 1-6, in general, is not
positive for Russia. But later, almost the rest of month looks
favorable for Russia to handle the domestic and international affairs with
positive results. Covert activities in Russia will be on
China, Hong Kong, and
Pacific-rim countries: For China, February 6-23 is
going to be a very challenging period. But I think, China will come out successful in
dealing with those domestic as well as international challenges.
China is more likely to favor in incorporating some of the
capitalistic ideas at home. Japanese as well as pacific-rim economies are likely to
do fine during the month.
Europe: Until February 10, and then Feb
23 through 28, Europe is likely to experience domestic crisis
leading to social unrest
as well as religious instability.
Pakistan: The country is likely to go
through a serious crisis due to internal crisis between the
moderates and the religious militants, and as a result, expect a
long term chaos. It would be tough for her to maintain good
relationship with the USA without giving up the old fashioned ways
of dealing with the crisis.
Religion: Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square
(February 23-Mar 8) will become responsible for religious
tensions between the orthodox zealots and their liberal
counterparts, especially in the Unites States.
Man-made Calamities: Except
for the first week the month looks relatively quiet from the
natural or man-made calamities standpoint.
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
