some pockets of days in December during which natural and
man-made calamities will likely to continue, relatively, December may turn out to be a positive month for world stability, economic
prosperity and peace. The
major planetary configurations for December are: a friendly
Mars-Jupiter opposition, not-so-friendly Mars-Ketu regular quincunx; challenging
Saturn-Jupiter and ferocious Mars-Saturn
regular squares; favorable Saturn-Rahu trine and desirable Pluto-Uranus
ninefold and Saturn-Ketu regular sextiles. In addition,
Mars continues to be retrograde till December 10.
quincunxes and squares are negative and
challenging planetary forces (natural and man-made calamities) the
positive and favorable trines and sextiles (world stability and
material prosperity) will compensate for the negative influence of
quincunxes and squares.
other planetary configurations that may play significant roles in
influencing events in December are Pluto-Saturn ninefold trine and
Uranus-Saturn ninefold sextile.
The countries that
are likely to make headline news are: Russia, Europe, Iraq,
Afghanistan, Israel, Palestine, India, Pakistan, and USA.
President Bush and his administration:
as November, December will prove to be a challenging, stressful,
and mostly negative month for president Bush in dealing with domestic
and Iraq war issues. In addition, Saturn's transit through his natal Mercury and Pluto will not only
put pressure on him from health standpoint, but also, he will have
trouble managing his administration as he will continue to be under extreme
emotional and mental pressure. Rahu will quincunx his natal Mars
through the entire month. As a result, he is likely to become more
anxious, impatient and impulsive, and that will clearly reflect in
the decisions he makes during December. The retrograde Saturn, which is
currently his most operative and influencing planet, will not just only test his
will and character but it will manifest in bringing out in open his past
secretive and deliberate actions in a most damaging way. His job
approval rating will likely to reach a new record low both
domestically and internationally.
As his ninefold
Saturn will be transiting his second house of his
progressive chart, at personal level, he is likely to remain under tremendous
stress due to family matters and finances.
Uranus-Rahu (Dec 1-10) and Uranus-Saturn (Dec 5-22) sextiles are positive for the
country from economy and technological progress standpoint.
Positive news reflecting outstanding achievements by Americans in various fields (political, social, scientific, technology,
humanity, etc.) are likely to dominate media. However, on the downside, Mars-Ketu
quincunx (Dec 18-28) and Mars-Saturn square (Dec 23-31) are likely
to manifest in the form of natural as well as man-made
the Republic party the political atmosphere is likely to get
better except for the last week of the month. However, the differences
between the senior leaders of the party and the Bush administration on
domestic and Iraq war issues will remain and will continue to be
the cause for friction between them. The party
leaders are likely to distance the administration or take neutral
stance on most of the issues that are going to dominate the
political news during December.
democrats, December is going to be an exciting month. The
party will transform into a new party with positive agenda and new
leaders. New optimism will be on rise attracting new members.
Saturn-Rahu regular and Pluto-Saturn ninefold trines are positive
forces for economical and political progress in Russia. As a result,
the country is likely to enjoy December a great deal.
Europe: The positive influence of Saturn-Rahu
trine will continue to be
reflected in economic expansion and general well being of public
all over Europe. However, Mars-Saturn square may manifest in
terrorism or attempts of suicide bombings during Dec 23-31. In
addition, during the same period events of natural calamity are likely.
Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: Except for the last week the
entire month for China looks to be positive. The economic growth for the region will continue to be phenomenal.
Except for the third week (Dec 13-21) of the month religious leaders are likely to enjoy the
month in advancing their agendas. The last week is really good for religious
activities, especially for those in the United States. However,
the third week, occurrence of an undesirable incident or friction
between orthodox and moderately liberal leaders is likely.
Mars-Ketu quincunx, Mars-Saturn squares will be
responsible for both the
natural and man-made disasters. While Mars-Saturn square is likely to manifest in the form of violence, suicide
bombings, and fire related natural disasters in Europe, Middle
East and Asia, the Mars-Ketu quincunx is likely to be responsible for chaotic
situation, especially in Middle East
region. Thus, the probable periods of both natural and man-made calamities are:
Dec 12-21 and Dec 23-31.
Earthquakes: During December 13-17 and December 23-31 a
probability of occurrence of one or more earthquakes of
magnitude 7 or higher is very high in regions of Asia that include
Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan,
Pakistan, India, Japan and pacific-rim-region.
man-made calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest,
violence, accidents, and air
crashes, the natural calamities are likely to
include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally intensive
hurricanes or typhoons, thunderstorms, earthquakes
