Comments for last month's (February) Predictions
Date Posted: February 28, 2003

 

Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

    The month of February is likely to bring more violence and terrorism than normal in the Middle-East region, particularly during February14-22 period. If war with Iraq breaks out in February it will most likely be during February 14-22 period. However, on a positive note, Neptune-Jupiter direct opposition will be responsible for optimism for a renewed diplomatic effort to seek solution to the existing conflict. The same Neptune-Jupiter opposition is good for religion as it will force the religious world to look for better ways to deal with current issues (including morality) requiring to abandon the old ways of doing things.

    Anti-war protest in most major cities around the world in February was a clear indication of optimism for a renewed diplomatic effort to seek solution as alternative for war as a result of Neptune-Jupiter direct opposition as predicted above.

    The planetary configurations that will influence events in February are: Neptune-Jupiter and Mars-Saturn ninefold and direct oppositions, Uranus-Rahu and Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunxes, Saturn-Jupiter and Jupiter-Pluto ninefold squares, and Neptune-Ketu, Rahu-Jupiter ninefold trines, Neptune-Rahu sextiles, and Pluto-Mars direct conjunction.

    The countries that are likely to make headline news are: United States, western European countries, Russia, Israel and Palestine, Iraq, China and Korea. 

  • United States of America:    

    President Bush and his administration:  As predicted last month, the relationship between Russia and Bush administration will continue to stay strained. For President Bush, January was not an easy month (as deceptive Neptune transits opposite his natal Mercury and Pluto in the first house. Also, the ninefold Uranus entered his ninefold ascendant on January 19 while ninefold Neptune entered in the eighth house of his ninefold chart on January 23) in dealing with United Nation's security council and to promote his agenda of a possible preemptive war with Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein's regime. Following is a summary of predictions made about Bush administration and Iraq in last few months: 

    Predictions made on August 31 for September 2002:  "President Bush is likely to announce his plans to dethrone Saddam Hussein in Iraq during the last week (Sept 24 onwards) of the month. However, he must be careful in dealing with his allies, and based on his current progressive chart, I think he is very likely to abandon his idea of taking Saddam Hussein's regime out sometimes in October or November. If not, he is destined to face a very challenging and frustrating fall and possibly winter with a failed mission.

    Predictions made on September 30 for October 2002:  "The relationship between Russia and USA (particularly Bush administration) is likely to become more strained, and as a result, President Bush will find himself frustrated in carrying out his crusade of dethroning of Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq. President Bush and his administration must be careful in dealing with his allies, and based on his progressive chart, he is likely to face an uphill battle both at home (Republicans) and abroad (allies) in convincing them the need for overthrowing the Saddam Hussein's regime, and subsequently may be forced to abandon his idea of taking Saddam Hussein's regime out sometimes in October or November. If not, he is destined to face a very challenging and frustrating fall and possibly winter with a failed mission."

    Based on President Bush's current planetary transits, he will be frustrated and consumed in facing his adversaries during February as Saturn stays anchored in his seventh house. In addition, his ninefold Uranus will be in the first house of his ninefold chart, and that Uranus will cause him a lot of stress and agony in dealing with situation that might demand to let his ego go. To top it all, Mars will be transiting through the first house of his ninefold chart making him extremely hard to remain patience and prudent.  As a result, in addition to his declining popularity both home and abroad and diminishing support from his allies for going to war with Iraq, he very well may find himself in a situation to fire some of his key cabinet members during this and the next month to look for a way to exit gracefully. If he goes ahead with war he will be in for a long and frustrating spring with a very little success. 

    The month filled with news of UN council's dealing of disarmament of Saddam Hussein has forced President Bush to be somewhat on defensive. Clearly President Bush has been frustrated with United Nations and trying hard to get United Nations behind him to carry out war against Saddam Hussein.

              Russia:  While retrograde Saturn will continue to create more challenges for Putin administration in dealing with his existing domestic problems, the Neptune-Jupiter opposition will provide him the needed optimism to push for his domestic agenda with resounding success. The relationship with USA (particularly with Bush administration) will continue to stay strained. The second and the third week of February are very positive for the entire country.

              Europe:  The Mars-Saturn opposition during the third week of February (February 19-22) is not good for the continent. An outbreak of social crisis or some sort of natural or man-made calamity is strongly indicated by the Mars-Saturn opposition.  Relationship with USA will remain sour. 

              China, Japan and Pacific-rim Countries:  February is going to be a positive month for the region as a whole. Chinese government will earn international prestige while Japan and Pacific-rim regions are likely to experience positive economical growth.

              Religion:  The second and the third week will turn out to be very positive for most of the religions around the world. The last week of the month, however, is not good for religions, especially in the United States. Religious authorities will come under severe public criticism for the issues that separate rights from wrongs and the way they aught to deal with them.

              Natural and Man-made Calamities:   While Mars-Saturn and Mars-Pluto squares are most likely to create disturbance either in the form of a terrorism, or perhaps a social crisis, the balancing Neptune-Jupiter opposition will provide positive energy to counter-act the negative energy caused by these squares. In general, during February 14-22 the natural and man-made calamities are most likely.

      Following are some of the headline news for February 14-22 period.

      Feb 14: Bomb kills 15 in Columbia

      Feb 15: Explosion kills 4 Israeli soldiers in Gaza

      Feb 15: Massive storm paralyzes eastern USA.  At least 20 people were killed.

      Feb 16:  21 dead in night club panic in Chicago

      Feb 18: Subway explosion kills 120 in South Korea 

      Feb 19: Israeli tanks rolled in Gaza.  11 Palestinians killed.

      Feb 19: Military plane crashes in Iran, 302 people aboard dead.

      Feb 20: 17 dead in Pakistan air force plane crash

      Feb 21:  Fiery death at rock show in Rhode Island club, USA.  96 dead.

      Feb 22: Gunmen killed 8 in Pakistan mosque 

            While 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 crashes and fires.

 
Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

During Feb 14-22 markets will be very volatile. The planetary configurations that are going to affect the financial markets are: Mars-Saturn, Neptune-Jupiter oppositions, Mars-Pluto conjunction, Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx, Jupiter-Rahu, and Neptune-Ketu ninefold trines, and Jupiter-Saturn ninefold square. 

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.

February 1-3: Mixed to bullish

February 4: Bullish

February 5-6: Mixed

February 7-10: Mixed to bearish

February 11-13: Bullish

February 14-19: Volatile with bullish bias

February 20-22: Volatile

February 23-25: Mixed

February 26-28: Bearish

Except for about 4-5 days ( especially during the second week and the last couple of days of the month) the financial markets in February pretty much followed the predictions.
