to July, the month of August is likely to be equally
eventful from global events perspectives. The
challenging and perhaps scary planetary configurations
for August are: Mars-Uranus direct opposition, Uranus-Saturn direct quincunx,
Pluto-Saturn ninefold square and Saturn-Rahu
ninefold opposition. However, a favorable planetary
configuration for world political and economical
stability will come from Uranus-Rahu ninefold trine
in the early part of the month and will extend through
first half of September.
12-15) direct opposition will be responsible for rise in natural and made
calamities around the world, renewed insurgency in Iraq,
continued fight in Lebanon, looming nuclear
threat from Iran and North Korea, and fire related
incidents all around the world, especially in the United
States. Pluto-Saturn ninefold square (Aug 1-5) and Uranus-Saturn (Aug 1-
6) quincunx will reflect in extended US involvement in
Middle East conflict with more fatalities and continued
fighting between Hezbollah and Israeli forces, and also,
will reflect in natural and man-made calamities. Saturn-Rahu ninefold
opposition (Aug 20-23) is not favorable for European
Union (EU) and Russia. Differences on key
international issues between US and EU and US and Russia
are likely to intensify during this 4-day period. Also,
a real possibility of terrorist activity in Europe and Russia
exist during this period.
In general, Middle-East
will continue to be the battlefield as the fighting
continues in Iraq, Lebanon, Israel and Palestine region.
And directly or indirectly US, Russia, and some European
countries will likely to be significantly drawn into
the negative influence of planetary configurations as
described above, interestingly, the hope for the world
stability will come from Uranus-Rahu ninefold trine (Aug
4- Sept 15). In August United States is
likely to be successful in influencing the world events
in a more positive way. Advances in
scientific research and technology will continue
unabated during this month.
The countries that are likely to make headline
news will be: United States, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Palestine,
and North Korea, key European countries and Russia.
- United States of
President Bush and his
the clashes in the Middle East between Israel and Hezbollah
as well as the changing dynamics of world politics with
respect to Middle East will likely to provide Bush
administration an ammunition to actually provide a
strong leadership by having most of US allies on its
side and supporting administration's policy of
bringing peace to the region.
president Bush, Neptune trines his natal Moon and Jupiter
all through the month. This is an auspicious planetary
combination. He is likely to be successful in
effectively dealing with mundane day-to day activities
at the White House as he is very likely to be tuned with
his administration for a change. Also, there's a good
possibility of a jubilant event taking place during this
month that might involve his Florida governor brother
the first half of the month Uranus trines his natal Sun
aiding him in providing successful leadership in both
domestic and international matters. And even though the
first week is going to be politically very turbulent for
him the ninefold tenth house Mars is likely to hand him
a victory in dealing with both domestic and
international matters. However, the squaring of Jupiter with his natal Mercury
and Pluto especially during first two weeks of the month will
reflect in his continued difficulties and frustration of
Iraq matters. Overall, for president Bush and his
administration, the month looks to be more positive than
the Uranus-Rahu ninefold trine (Aug
4- Sept 15) is very positive for the country, despite Mars-Uranus direct opposition, Uranus-Saturn direct quincunx,
Pluto-Saturn ninefold square and Saturn-Rahu
ninefold opposition the United States will likely to
enjoy a period of increased international popularity and
recognition. Also, advances in
scientific research and technology will reflect in news
and economic expansion.
direct opposition (Aug 12-15) will be responsible for
natural and man-made calamities and fire related
incidents. During the same period there will be a
direct political conflict between leaders of both
parties. Also, a possibility of a political figure being
involved in a scandal or shame can not be ruled
out. Uranus-Saturn direct quincunx (Aug 1-6) will
manifest in the form of political bickering between
democrats and republicans as well as between
conservatives and liberals. Nothing will get
accomplished at the Capital Hill during the first week.
For republicans, the month doesn't look to be that positive. The
first half of the month and the last week may prove to
be challenging as well as frustrating. Despite
president's popularity the party leaders continue to
have problems reconciling with the administration.
For democrats, August may prove to be relatively a favorable month.
Uranus-Rahu ninefold trine will manifest in increased
prestige and popularity of the party. New party
leaders are likely to emerge.
The first and the third week of the month will be more
challenging and eventful for the Putin administration as the
possibility Russian involvement with the middle-east
conflict is likely to increase during those weeks. Man-made and natural calamities
will also play important part in disrupting normal life
in Russia during the first week of the month.
For Europe, the month certainly looks to
be an eventful with both positive and negative
news. The first week is certainly bad as the some of the
European nations likely to get involved with the
Middle-East conflict with no coherent strategy. However,
the relationship with USA will likely to become more
friendly. Pluto-Saturn ninefold square and Saturn-Rahu
ninefold opposition may become responsible for a natural or
Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:
The first week will be politically very challenging as
China may have to deal with a natural or man-made calamity.
economic progress standpoint the entire region
will continue to make progress.
Violence and suicide bombings in Iraq,
Afghanistan, and fighting in Lebanon, and in Palestine-Israel
regions will continue through all month, especially during
August 1-5, 12-15, 20-23, and 28-31 periods.
The first week (Uranus-Saturn quincunx) will not bode
well for religious activities and for religious leaders all around the world.
The war in the middle-east will continue to provide fuel
for religious fanatics to play on people's emotions.
Natural and Man-made Calamities: Mars-Uranus direct opposition, Uranus-Saturn direct quincunx and
Pluto-Saturn ninefold square, and Saturn-Rahu ninefold
opposition will be
responsible for both the natural and man-made disasters
during August. The notable periods are: Aug 1-6, 12-15,
Earthquakes: Based on our
prediction model, during August the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher
likely to occur on August 1-6, 27, and Aug 29-31.

violence, accidents, and air crashes, the natural

conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally
intensive droughts, hurricanes or typhoons,
thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires.
