Comments on General Global Predictions of
the last month
begins with a total lunar eclipse (May 4). Since this eclipse occurs
on the sidereal Aries-Libra axis and is visible in Europe, Asia
(Middle east), Africa and Australia, the possibility of occurrence
of terrorist activities and violence
is very likely in any one of those regions. In addition, the conjunction of Mars
and Saturn which occurs during May 20-23 in sidereal Gemini may
become responsible for a severe natural disaster or a huge manmade calamity due to
communication problems. Of course, during the same period it will
not be surprising to see the conflict between the Israel and
Palestine gets flared up and the Iraq situation becomes worse.
were several incidences of violence and retaliation in Israel and Palestine
areas making the situation worse than it was at the beginning of May.
Terrorism (Nick Burg beheading, daily loss of American lives in Iraq), a bomb
killing Chechen president, A huge wave of tornados sweeping most of the
midwest region of the USA, and similar natural calamities in different parts
of world occurred during May.
On a positive note,
however, we have a lot more to be thankful to Saturn-Ketu (May 11-22), Rahu-Jupiter
(May 20-June 5), Mar-Uranus (May 16-18), and Mars-Ketu trines and
Saturn-Jupiter (April 23 - May 12) and Mars-Jupiter (May 20-23)
sextiles. I expect the world economy to expand very convincingly and
more terrorist plots to be foiled than succeed. And some of the key
terrorist might get captured.
For science and
technology May will turn out to be a very favorable month as
escalation in research activities resulting in
innovations and discoveries in modern medicine and biotechnology
will continue. Innovations in other fields such as high-tech
technology will also make the headlines.
The countries that
are likely to make headline news are: Russia, United States, European countries, Iraq, Middle Eastern countries including Israel and
Palestine, and China.
President Bush and his administration:
May, in general, may turn out to be a good month for the world,
President Bush it's a different story. During May for him the lunar nodes will be squaring
his natal Pluto
and natal Mercury till May 15,
and as a result, the first two weeks of May will prove to be very
crucial for him in dealing with domestic as well as foreign
matters. In my opinion, personally, it's certainly going to be
extremely frustrating period for him as the likelihood of some of his
very close associates deserting him or forced to leave him becomes
high, and some of the key republican leaders are likely to be
disappointed with his performance and more importantly with his stubbornness. In addition,
during the conjunction of Mars with Saturn (May 20-23) he should
take care of his health and personal safety. On a positive
note, as Jupiter transits his natal Mars in May his popularity in
poll is likely to stay ahead of his democratic counterpart.
May 7: U. S. Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld publicly testified before congress and apologized for
Iraqi Prison abuse.
9: Iraqi Prison abuse trial set.
22: President Bush fell off his bike in his Ranch in Crawford,
Texas and had bruised his knee, chin, and nose.
the country in general, May is a positive month except perhaps
during May 20-29 period. Positive news with respect
to terrorism related activities such as foiling of terrorist plots
or actual capturing of key terrorists are very likely during May.
was a news of capturing of key possible Al-Qaida operatives in
Briton and elsewhere during May 20-29 period.
For the Republic
Party the first two weeks are positive, but the third week and
possibly the first half of the fourth week is not favorable.
the Democratic Party except for May 20-29 the month looks to be

testify in public before congress and had to apologize

may turn out to be a crucial month for Russia and Putin
administration. Some sort of social or political crises are likely
to emerge during May 15-27 period. Covert activities will be on
rise during the same period.
9: Bomb kills Chechen President
Europe: During May 20-29 an event is
likely to occur that will become the cause for the (further)
friction between the USA and Europe. Although not very likely
terrorist related activities might occur during the first and the
last two weeks of May.
Except for the last week of May religions or world religious leaders
should enjoy their activities and work.
The lunar eclipse (May 4), and May 15-27 periods are likely to filled with events related to both
man-made and natural calamities.
There were several incidences of violence and retaliation in
Israel and Palestine areas making the situation worse than it was
at beginning of May. Terrorism (Nick Burg beheading, daily
loss of American lives in Iraq), a bomb killing Chechen president,

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
financial markets in the first ten days of May are likely to trend bullish, then
mixed for about a week followed by a week of bullishness and then bearish
as we approach the last week 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.
Bullish to mixed
30-31: Bearish to mixed
predictions were more or less totally off for the entire May. Apparently
the influence of quincunxes was far more pronounced than I expected.
