Comments on General Global Predictions of
the last month
first ten days of August (and perhaps as late as August 24) are going to be dominated by Pluto-Rahu opposition (and Pluto-Ketu
conjunction). causing the Mid-East
conflict to continue with more bloodshed and loss of human lives. In addition, during the same
time, a possibility of the outbreak of a new wave of
terrorism across Europe, USA, and some part of Middle-East is high,
and the conflict
between India and Pakistan will likely to intensify again during the
same time period.

August 14-15, there were reports of mass murders and killings in Indian
Major planetary configurations that are
going to influence the world events in August are: Rahu-Pluto opposition and Ketu-Pluto conjunction
(July 23-Aug 10), Uranus-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Aug 19-24), Pluto-Saturn (July 30-Aug 5)
ninefold square, and Uranus-Rahu (Aug 25-31), Saturn-Rahu (Aug
25-28) ninefold trines. While the ninefold trines
are favorable for prosperity and stability around the world during
the last week of the month, the influence of
opposition, conjunction and square will certainly dominate the world
events with more uncertainly and anxiety during the first half of
The countries that are likely to make headline news
are: Israel, Palestine, Pakistan, India, United States, Russia,
China, and Europe.
The terrorist activities (suicide bombings, etc.) and subsequent
retaliation will likely to continue through the first two weeks of

a positive note, United States, Russia, China, and most of the pacific-rim countries
(Japan and Korea in particular) are likely to enjoy more peaceful
and prosperous time during the last week of the month. Technological areas are likely to experience significant progress via inventions and
discoveries. Religious activities in the USA will likely to expand with a far more
of America: During the first week of August the
ongoing corporate crime crisis is likely to continue with more new
revelations. Bush administration will continue to be under
pressure to resolve the domestic as well as international crisis.
Due to continued terrorist activities and suicidal

administration is likely to come under intense international political pressure to resolve the crisis.

Also, Bush administration has trouble in coming up with a cohesive
international strategy on terrorism and Iraq due to apparent
disagreements between some of his key cabinet members and
For President Bush, at least until the
middle of the month, he may lose support for his policies (both foreign and
domestic) even from republicans, and because of very close Pluto-Ketu conjunction in the
ninefold ascendant of his birth chart, it would be a real
challenge for him to handle the on going day-to-day activities
without losing his reputation. Again from health standpoint, he
must take extra care of his health and safety during this time.
administration is unable to convince even his fellow republicans
on its Saddam Hussein ousting plan. Support from international
community and European allies is also dwindling, leaving President
Bush somewhat isolated.
The first week
of August is certainly not favorable for Republic Party. However,
during the last two weeks of August the differences between the
democrats and republicans will surprisingly diminish to a point
that a lot of positive developments are likely to take place at
the capital hill breaking the usual political gridlock and leading
to passage of more legislative bills that the country is in a true
the month of August is, again, likely to be very positive for Russia for its international
and domestic policies. Mr. Putin and his administration will
be successful in carrying out their political agenda.
China, Hong Kong, and
Pacific-rim countries: Except for the
second week of August China is likely to enjoy a period of
prosperity. Pacific-rim region
(particularly Japan and Korea) will do well economically..
Europe: For the entire continent the
first half of August doesn't look good. Economical conditions are
likely to deteriorate due to unforeseen circumstances that could be
caused by either or both
natural and man-made calamities. In addition, an outbreak of a terrorist
activity can not be ruled out.
and Pakistan: For the subcontinent the first
half of August (especially until Aug 10) is not favorable from peace and
stability standpoint. The
tension along the border and cross-border terrorism will be on
rise causing the concern for a potential threat of nuclear
war between these two countries.
During the second and third week of the month religions around the
world, especially the churches in the United States,
will be again on defensive in dealing with morality issues.
Emergence of a new religious crisis is likely during the third
week of the month.
These can occur almost anytime and anywhere in the world during the first three weeks of August. However, the more likely period, in my opinion, will be
until August 10, and then August 19 through 24. The areas that are
more prone for such causes are: Europe, Israel, Palestine, India, and Pakistan along with some of the other Middle
wildfires in the United States and record flooding in Europe
(Austria, Germany, and neighboring countries), Russia, and China,
plane crashes in Russia and China, unusual temperatures almost
across the entire globe were reported during August.
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 month of August is very likely to begin with a bearish trend, however, later
in the month markets are likely to turn bullish, and possibly finish the month
with net gains. 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 volatile and bearish. However, Rahu-Saturn, Uranus-Rahu, and Rahu-Jupiter
ninefold trines and Uranus-Saturn ninefold conjunction 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.
Bearish to mixed
7: Mixed to bullish
8-9: Mixed to bearish
15-21: Mixed to bearish
29-30: Mixed to bullish
The predictions for the first half of
August were pretty
much in-line with the markets. But the fourth week predictions were off-base
(less bullish or more bearish than predicted) causing all the major market
indices for the month to remain almost unchanged.
