Comments for last month's (Dec 2003) Predictions
Date Posted: December 31, 2003

 

Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

The first week of December is very likely to be filled with events that deal with violence, terrorism, and suicide bombings in Middle East, Iraq, Israel-Palestine areas, and possibly in the USA.  Attacks against western interests abroad, especially against US interests are very probable. Planetary configurations that are responsible for such violenct events are: Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction (Nov 30 - Dec 8), Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (Nov 9 - Dec7), Neptune-Saturn  quincunx (Dec 4-23), Pluto-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares (Nov 27 - Dec 4).  

Pluto-Uranus square (Nov 9 - Dec 7) has been responsible for dominating news from and about Iraq, guerrilla warfare between the US arm forces and the Iraqi opposition forces (highest monthly US troops casualty rate in November), and continued violence in Middle east area. In addition, Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (Dec 27-31) and Pluto-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Dec 23-28) will be manifested in to more violence and terrorist related activities all around the globe during the last week of the month. 

Although I haven't kept track of almost daily bombings in Iraq, Israel and Palestine, some of the news headlines from the last week of December clearly are attributed to Uranus-Saturn ninefold square and Pluto-Saturn ninefold conjunction:

Dec 23: Earthquake in California

Dec 25:  Insurgents launch holiday attack in Iraq;  Bus bombed in Israel killing at least three; Terror worries halt Paris-to-L.A. flights; More than sixty killed in plane crash off Africa; Pakistani President escapes assassination attempt twice; Nearly two hundred die in China explosion

Dec 26: More than 5000 killed in Iranian Earthquake

USA will be significantly involved with violence related conflicts and as a result it will put additional pressure on Bush administration to handle the conflicts. Neptune-Saturn quincunx (Dec 4 -23) means deceptive atmosphere surrounding the world events and increased covert activities. It also means Bush administration is likely to come under severe pressure in explaining the deception and lies surrounding such events. 

On a positive note, Rahu-Jupiter (Dec 10-28) trine will be responsible for positive changes and progress in religious, technical, and scientific (more innovations, discoveries, and inventions) world.

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

  • United States of America:    

  • President Bush and his administration:  

    Neptune's continued march opposing the natal Mercury and Pluto in President Bush's birth chart will continue to keep the administration on defensive. It also means Mr. Bush would be tangled in a political snafu, and will be forced to explain the American people the justification for his actions which allegedly stemmed from deception and lies.  Pretty much the entire month President Bush and his administration will come under severe political pressure.  President Bush is likely to experience tremendous stress, and as a result, it will become increasingly difficult for him to make sound decisions on both domestic and foreign policy matters. It would be not be, therefore, a surprise if he makes a blunder on such matters. President's Bush's popularity and job rating will certainly be on decline as his adversaries will constantly be on his tail on Iraq war issues. 

    Contrary to my predictions President Bush overall did well, his popularity rose during the last week of the month.  Perhaps the positive influence of lunar nodes was strong enough to overcome the negative influence of Neptune's transit.

    The Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (Nov 9-Dec 7) has already brought changes in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda when it announced it's shift in Iraq policy in the third week of November focusing more on accelerated schedule of transfer of power to Iraqis.    Such a transformation of a political strategy (as it did in last March) will continue till Dec 7 (perhaps it will reflect in domestic matters) that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda. Expect some serious domestic issues that President Bush and his administration will be forced to deal with.

    The Country:

    As stated last month, if terrorism is going to strike in the United States in next twelve months it's very likely that it will be during November 9 through December 7 period.  Since several possibilities exist as to nature or form of such activities it's very difficult to predict one that would actually happen if it happens. 

    Heavy friction between Democrats and Republicans (also between liberals and conservatives) is very likely during the first week of December. While Democratic Party will continue through its transformation phase the Republic Party will come under serious political pressure to explain matters that are clouded with deception and lies.  Also, the relationship between USA and Russia is likely to go through a crisis period.

              Russia:  Almost the entire month, in general, is not favorable for Russia, especially for the Putin administration. In addition to deal with on going political crisis it will have to seriously deal with economic problems during the latter part of the month.

              Europe:  Eastern European countries are likely to be negatively influenced by Neptune-Saturn quincunx. Covert activities will likely to continue (but because of Neptune's secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other domestic as well as international conflicts. 

              Religion:  Rahu-Jupiter trine will provide favorable atmosphere for religious activities to flourish. Religious authorities will likely to have easy time in promoting their agenda. 

              Natural and Man-made Calamities:   Periods during which such calamities are more likely to occur are: Dec 1-8, 11-20, and 23-31. 

      Although I haven't kept track of almost daily bombings in Iraq, Israel and Palestine, some of the news headlines from the last week of December are:

      Dec 23: Earthquake in California

      Dec 25:  Insurgents launch holiday attack in Iraq;  Bus bombed in Israel killing at least three; Terror worries halt Paris-to-L.A. flights; More than sixty killed in plane crash off Africa; Pakistani President escapes assassination attempt twice; Nearly two hundred die in China explosion

      Dec 26: More than 5000 killed in Iranian Earthquake

           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 December are likely to be mixed to bearish through most of the month.

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.

December 1-8: Bearish

December 9-10: Mixed to bearish

December 11: Bearish 

December 12-17: Mixed to bearish

December 18-19: Mixed

December 20-22: Mixed to bearish

December 23-27: Bearish

December 28-31: Mixed to bearish 

The world financial market predictions seem to be pretty much on track (except a few days) during the entire month.
