Comments for last month's (March) Predictions
Date Posted: March 31, 2004

 

Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

The month of March is going to be remembered as the month of deception for most of the major global events occurring in this month. 

Interestingly during March while new deceptions were created some of the important past deceptions were brought to light.  And they are:

Richard Clarke, the former White House anti-terrorism chief both in his book and to the 9/11 panel revealed that Bush administration didn't consider terrorism threat serious enough before the 9/11 attacks in New York City and Washington DC and after the 9/11 attacks the preoccupation with Saddam and Iraq resulted in Bush administration not paying serious attention to Al-Qaida organization. (The monthly global predictions at this site have been following the Bush administration in depth since September 2002 with respect to Iraq war and President Bush's decision to go to war against Iraq.) 

The passing of the Medicare Bill in the House last December seemed to be a deceptive process, and it had come to light during March when it was revealed that the administration didn't tell the law makers that the actual cost to American tax payers was going to be much more than 400 Billion dollars that they asked for.

Pakistan's attempt to capture high valued Al-Qaida operative almost looked like a done deal and then it failed.  We would never know what really might have happened behind the scene (if and) until it gets revealed sometimes in future.

The major planetary configurations that will be responsible for global events in March are: auspicious Rahu-Jupiter (Feb 14 - Mar 11) trine and Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (Feb 26 - Mar 19) secretive squares. While the auspicious trine will be responsible to continue maintaining economical and social progress all around the world the lunar nodes squaring Neptune will manifest themselves in political, social deception as well as violence and terrorism, covert activities, and manmade and natural calamities. Secret activities all around the world are likely to accelerate by the end of February through March 19.  Also, during the same period (Feb 26 - Mar 19) Al-Qaeda activities might be on rise, and social confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China is probable. Beginning March 14 Neptune-Uranus ninefold opposition will bring added dimension of a new conflict between conservatives and liberals in the United States. Again deception will play a major role in this conflict.

The headline news of the month are:

March 11:  Madrid Bombings which not only just brutally killed 200 and wounded 1500 people but the ruling party of Spain lost the election...apparently creating the impression that al-Qaida can influence the political course in the West.   Bush administration has lost an important ally. 

Continued violence and almost daily loss of American lives in Iraq still dominate the news.

March 21:  Richard Clarke, the former white house counter-terrorism chief accused the Bush administration for misleading the nation with Iraq War and also ignoring the warnings of potential Al-Qaida attacks (September 11).

John Kerry and President Bush have been running negative campaigns and creating ever increasing friction between the liberals and conservatives. Never before liberals and conservatives had been at other's throat so intensely. 

For science and technology March 14 onwards (actually till April 10) this is a great time.  Acceleration in research activities resulting in innovations and discoveries in modern medicine and biotechnology are very likely.  Other fields such as high-tech, information technology will also make headways.

In general, while the first two-to-three weeks will be weeks of chaos and confusion, continued violence, terrorism and and suicide bombings in Iraq, Palestine and Israel area the last couple of weeks will be dominated by progress in science and technology.

The countries that are likely to make headline news are:  United States, Iraq, Middle Eastern countries including Israel and Palestine, Russia and China. 

  • United States of America:    

President Bush and his administration:  

As you probably have already noticed from the last month's prediction that since February President Bush has been challenged by the retrograde Saturn square to his natal Neptune. As a result, to win their approval he has been resorting to deceptive tactics of repositioning himself before American people directly contradicting to his earlier stand on both domestic and foreign policy (WMD) matters. In doing so he has been facing very difficult and frustrating time (as his stubbornness and reluctant to let his ego go, a unique characteristics of sidereal Taurus Uranus and Rahu), and therefore, he has been under severe political pressure.  On March 24, Pluto becomes retrograde.  The retrograde Pluto in his ninefold ascendant of his natal chart will certainly be responsible for a beginning phase of transformation in his personality.  At this point what this transformation will entail....it's difficult to predict since possibilities are abound.  In my opinion, I wouldn't be surprised to see a drastic change in his personal agenda which may seriously contradict the political agenda of the Republic Party. 

Bush administration has been on defensive in explaining the reasons for Iraq War and fighting against terrorism.  The administration also lost Spain, an important ally for Iraq War. 

In light of recent hearings that began around March 24 (the day Pluto turned retrograde)  by an independent 9/11 panel appointed by President Bush the controversial testimony by Richard Clarke which the White House vehemently opposed and attacked resulted in the Panel's demand for national security advisor Dr. Rice to testify. The Bush White House after strongly resisting to have Dr. Rice testify under oath in front of the 9/11 panel yielded to the political pressure and very reluctantly allowed to have Dr. Rice testify.  It seems that this event may prove to be the beginning of this transformation as stated above.

The Country:

For the country in general, the second week (March 10-15) is very negative. A possibility of either man-made or natural calamity or a very chaotic social turmoil exists. The last two weeks are positive from economic expansion and technological advances standpoint. 

March 11  Madrid Bombings has certainly changed the people's (especially in the West, and particularly in the USA) perception about safety.

For the Democratic Party the second week is likely to bring some confusion and chaos but then after the third week it will recover nicely with firm goal and solid national agenda.  For the Republic Party the first week (Mar 5-11) indicates frustration and deception. But latter half of the month doesn't look too bad. 

            Russia:  The first two weeks of the month will certainly be challenging for the Putin administration.  More political secrets are likely to become public perhaps causing a major shift in public perception of government policies. 

    Putin administration barely managed to win election and stayed in power.

            Europe:  First two weeks of the month may bring unwanted political and social instability in the continent.  But second half of the month looks to be positive for the continent from social as well as economic progress standpoint.  

            Religion:  Religious authorities will likely to come under social and political pressure during the first two weeks of the month. 

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:   March 5 - 19 is not good period for most of the world, and it's likely to filled with events related to both man-made and natural calamities. 

    Madrid Bombings and major violence in the Iraq and Middle East occurred during March 5 - 19. 

         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

World financial markets in the first two weeks of March are likely to be bearish and then for the rest of the month bullish.

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.

March 1-2: Mixed 

March 3-8: Bearish

March 9: Mixed 

March 10-15: Bearish

March 16-20: Mixed

March 21-28: Bullish

March 29-31: Bullish to mixed

Except for few days in the last week of March world markets seem to follow predictions pretty close through the entire month.
