Comments on General Global Predictions of
the last month
year 2003 is likely to begin with some form of a religious crisis,
especially in the United States. Also, the period from
January 4 through January 13 (especially the latter part (Jan
10-13)) is not positive for the United States as it will be reflected in news that deal with either violence, terrorism,
or frustrations in carrying out Bush administration's agenda against
terrorism both at domestic and international level. However on the technological front, innovations, discoveries, and breakthroughs
(especially in biotech, medicine and high-tech areas) will continue to
dominate the news. The planetary dispositions that will
influence events in January are: Uranus-Rahu ninefold and Mars-Rahu
direct opposition, Neptune-Uranus and Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx,
Rahu/Ketu-Jupiter, Uranus-Jupiter ninefold and Uranus-Mars direct
squares, and Neptune-Saturn, Pluto-Ketu ninefold trines and Pluto-Rahu
The countries that
are likely to make headline news are: United States, Russia, some of
the major European countries (Britain, Germany, Italy), Middle-East
(Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and to a lesser extent Palestine
of America: As mentioned
earlier, January 4-13 period is not positive for the United
States. Religious crisis as well as outbreak of terrorism or
social violence are real possibilities during this period. The relationship
between Russia and USA (particularly Bush administration) will
continue to stay strained. For President Bush, January is
not going to be an easy month as deceptive Neptune transits
opposite his natal Mercury and Pluto in the first house. Also, the
ninefold Uranus enters his ninefold ascendant on January 19 while
ninefold Neptune enters in the eighth house of his ninefold chart
on January 23. What it means? His ability to see the things
clearly and make decisions will be influenced by apparent
deception caused by the people surrounding him as well as by his
own ego. In other words, it would be very difficult for him to
remain an open-minded person during this month. He should be extra
careful in taking any new step or direction that might influence
his both domestic and international policies during January 19
Some of the news items that supports the
Jan 8/9: Iraq...no smoking gun.
Jan 9/10: Korean crisis.
And President Bush's frustration over
convincing allies and American people for War with Iraq to disarm
Saturn will continue create more challenges for
Putin administration to deal with the existing problems
Neptune-Saturn ninefold (Jan 14-23) will help him meet those challenges. The relationship with USA (particularly with Bush administration)
is neither likely to remain unchanged. The first week of
January is very positive for the entire country.
Europe: The first two weeks of January
are not good for Europe. Relationship with USA will become sour
and economical conditions, in general, will get worse. An outbreak
of a social or religious crisis is very likely.
Germany are very reluctant to join USA for attack on Saddam Hussein's regime
Japan and Pacific-rim Countries: Economically it's not going to be
a positive month for China. For almost the entire month Chinese government
will likely be
faced with new domestic problems and (or) a new political
The first week (Jan 1-8) of the month will turn out to be very
crucial for most of the religions around the world, especially in
the United States. Religious authorities will come under severe
public criticism for the issues that separate rights from wrongs.
People's perception of religion and their expectations from
religious authorities will likely to become more negative.
While squares are likely to create disturbance (Jan 1-13) either in
the form of a religious crisis or a terrorism, especially in the
United States, the Neptune-Saturn and Pluto-Ketu trines will
provide positive energy to counter-act the negative energy caused
by squares and oppositions. In general, during Jan 1-13 and Jan
25-27 the natural and man-made calamities are more likely.
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
are some of the news headlines regarding natural and man-made
5: Suicide bombers kill 15 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
8: Crash of a commuter plane in Charlotte, North
8: Air crash in Turkey...72 killed.
9: Plane missing over Peru with 42 passengers.
13: In Mid-East 18 killed in a day.
25: Earthquake in Mexico, and Israeli forces kill 12 in
large scale attack.
26: 4-2 spy plane crashes in South Korea.
Comments on the last month's World Financial Markets
markets are likely to come under strong selling pressure during January. In general, the planetary configurations that are going to
financial markets are: Uranus-Rahu ninefold and Mars-Rahu direct
opposition, Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx, Jupiter-Rahu/Ketu,
and Uranus-Jupiter ninefold and Uranus-Mars direct squares, Neptune-Saturn and
Pluto-Ketu ninefold trines.
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.
1-3: Mixed to bearish
10-13: Very volatile
25-27: Volatile and bearish
for the few days (in second week) the financial markets in January pretty much
followed the predictions.
