Comments for last month's (Feb 06) Predictions
Date Posted: February 28, 2006

 

Comments on Global Predictions for the last month

    The global events that will dominate the month of February will be reflected in the manifestation of desirable Saturn-Rahu trine for world stability and economic prosperity on one hand, and the challenging Neptune-Jupiter square for secret political maneuvering and religious conflicts on the other. In addition, explosive Pluto-Mars quincunx will be responsible for continued violence in Iraq, Israel and Palestine region while favorable Mars-Rahu and Mars-Saturn sextiles will help provide solutions to on going political conflicts and expand world economy. As far as natural and man-made disasters are concerned the first three weeks (till February 23) are likely to be filled with lot of such events. While Saturn-Rahu trine continues to be very favorable and prosperous planetary configuration responsible for world stability and peace, the ninefold squares of lunar nodes with Neptune and Neptune with Saturn pose difficulties and challenges that will likely to be reflected in religious and morality based conflicts all around the world. 

    Feb 2: Insurgent attacks kill four US troops in Iraq

    Feb 3: Ferry carrying 1,300 sinks

    Feb 3: Protests Over Muhammad Drawings Intensify;  Muslim anger on cartoons spreads

    Feb 7: Suicide bomber kills 13 in attack on Afghan police

    Feb 7: Protests Over Drawings a 'Global Crisis'

    Feb 9: Suicide attack, gunmen, kill 27 in Pakistan

    Feb 13: Four US troops killed in Afghan blast: army

    Feb 17: Two China ships sink, 57 missing

    Feb 17: Hundreds feared dead in mudslide in Philippines

    Feb 17: Two US Marine helicopters crash off African coast

    Feb 17: Ten reported killed in Libya cartoon clashes

    Feb 20: Bombs kill 19 in Iraq after lull in violence

    Feb 22: At least 20 dead in new Nigerian religious riot

    Feb 22: Iraq shrine bombing fuels protests

    Feb 23: Iraq sectarian violence kills 130

    The countries that are likely to make headline news are:  Russia, Europe, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Palestine, Afghanistan, Pakistan and United States.

    • United States of America:    

    President Bush and his administration:  

    The good news for president Bush is that on February 5, the retrograde Saturn will leave his ninefold ascendant and enter the twelfth house of his ninefold progressive chart.  As a result, he will likely to be facing less political challenges compared to his adversaries. His adversaries are likely to find themselves frustrated in dealing with the White House. However the bad news for him is the opposition of Uranus to his natal Mars. This will make him irritated, he may speak too soon to be embarrassed later, and he will have hard time dealing with his own staff and party. 

    Feb 23:  Dubai port deal---Bush threatened to veto the blockage of the deal.

    Feb 27: Hurdles remain for ports deal: Bush, who earlier said no additional review was necessary, backs the acquisition and threatened last week to use his veto power if members of Congress sought to derail it.

    In addition, as a result of Rahu's opposition to his natal Moon, during the first two weeks of February, he is likely to come under severe mental stress and therefore, will become very indecisive in dealing with international matters that deal with Israel, Palestine, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and India. Also, transit of Mars in the seventh house of his ninefold chart means he will be unable to avoid direct confrontation even with his own administration in dealing with both domestic and international politics. In a nutshell, it will be very prudent of him to think twice before he opens his mouth during this month.

    The Country:

    The Saturn-Rahu regular trine, Pluto-Uranus and Uranus-Ketu ninefold sextiles are positive for the country from economy and technological progress standpoint. Positive news reflecting technological advances and innovations especially in the field of medicine and biotech will dominate the media during the first half of the month. 

    While Saturn-Rahu trine has been somewhat positive for the republicans, the ninefold squares between the lunar nodes and Neptune will certainly manifest during the first half of the month in the form of an event that will expose yet another political scandal. In general, the republicans are likely to stay on defensive during the entire month.

    For democrats, February may turn out to be an outstanding month, especially they will enjoy the second and third week of the month. Bipartisan efforts on domestic issues are likely to be successful during February 11-16.

              Russia:  Secret political activities are likely to accelerate during the first week of the month. Social confusion and chaos is a good possibility. However, the Saturn-Rahu regular trine will continue to be positive for economical progress.  During the the first week of the month an occurrence of man-made or natural disaster is likely.

              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, Pluto-Mars quincunx  and Neptune-Rahu/Ketu and Neptune-Saturn ninefold squares may manifest in violent activities or attempts of suicide bombings during Feb 1-12. 

              China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  Except for the first week the entire month of February looks to be positive for China from economical and social progress standpoint. Possibilities of political covert activities during the first week are likely. The economic growth for China, Japan and the entire pacific-rim region will continue to remain at an enviable pace. 

              Middle East:  An eruption or eruptions of new waves of violence in Iraq, Palestine-Israel and Afghanistan-Kashmir regions are likely during Feb 1-12 and Feb 15-23.

      Feb 2: Insurgent attacks kill four US troops in Iraq

      Feb 7: Protests Over Drawings a 'Global Crisis'

      Feb 9: Suicide attack, gunmen, kill 27 in Pakistan

      Feb 10: Car bomb kills nine as poll results released

      Feb 13: Four US troops killed in Afghan blast: army

      Feb 17: Ten reported killed in Libya cartoon clashes

      Feb 20: Bombs kill 19 in Iraq after lull in violence

      Feb 22: At least 20 dead in new Nigerian religious riot

      Feb 22: Iraq shrine bombing fuels protests

      Feb 23: Iraq sectarian violence kills 130

       

              Religion:  During this month, world religions in general, and religious leaders in particular, may experience themselves having to go through crisis that demand changes. In other words, the orthodox religious leaders may come under social and moral pressures to change the way they handle their responsibilities. Neptune-Jupiter square may manifest in revelation of a deceptive or secretive deed that involved higher level religious authorities. 

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:   Pluto-Rahu ninefold opposition, Pluto-Mars quincunx, Neptune-Rahu/Ketu and Neptune-Saturn ninefold squares will be responsible for both the natural and man-made disasters during February. The notable events will likely to occur during Feb 7-12, and Feb15-23.

    Feb 7: Suicide bomber kills 13 in attack on Afghan police

    Feb 10: Car bomb kills nine as poll results released

    Feb 17: Two China ships sink, 57 missing

    Feb 17: Hundreds feared dead in mudslide in Philippines

    Feb 17: Two US Marine helicopters crash off African coast

    Feb 17: Ten reported killed in Libya cartoon clashes

    Feb 20: Bombs kill 19 in Iraq after lull in violence

    Feb 22: At least 20 dead in new Nigerian religious riot

    Feb 22: Iraq shrine bombing fuels protests

    Feb 23: Moscow Market Roof Collapse Kills 49

    Feb 23: Iraq sectarian violence kills 130

          Earthquakes:  During February a probability of occurrence of an earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher is lowIf it does occur, it will likely to be on Feb 1, 5 or during February  22-28.

    Feb 22: A magnitude 7.5 earthquake IN MOZAMBIQUE has occurred at: 21.21S 33.34E Depth 10km Wed Feb 22 22:19:08 2006 UTC

    While in February there were about 30 earthquakes of magnitude 4 and higher, the above list includes those that were of magnitude 7 or higher.  It is interesting to note that majority of them occurred during Feb 22-28 period supporting the validity of the model that has been in use and constantly being improved. Also, for February, the low probability of occurrence of an earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher is reflected in only one that occurred on Feb 22 (during Feb 22-28 period) compared to three that occurred in January.

           While 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 droughts, hurricanes or typhoons, thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires.

    Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

World financial markets for February will likely to begin with a bearish sentiment for a first few days, then turn mixed to bullish till just half way through the month, then remain mixed till about February 25, and finally turn bullish till the end 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.

February 1-3: Bearish

February 4-18: Mixed to Bullish

February 19-25: Mixed

February 26-28: Bullish

The month world financial markets seem to follow the predictions pretty close throughout the month.
