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
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.
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.
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
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
