Comments on last month's (December 07) Predictions
Date Posted: December 31, 2007

 

Comments on Global Predictions for the last month

December is going to witness the manifestation of retrograde Mars and more importantly the first conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto (Dec 7 - 16) in sidereal Sagittarius since the Pluto was discovered.

Sagittarius is a mutable and fire sign, and it deals with philosophy, morality and religion.  Since Jupiter will be in conjunction with Pluto, the possibility of a severe religious or morality crisis is very likely.  Our age-old beliefs will be tested. Certainly the present religious and morality based norms will be challenged by the new spiritual forces of human evolution. The contemporary philosophers, reformers, scientists, writers, poets, and all those who have power to influence people with their unique intelligence will enjoy this period to its fullest. In addition, the influence of contemporary spiritual leaders on society will shape the future direction of our social evolution through the theosophical and metaphysical debates.

Dec 8 : Historic split for U.S. Episcopals

The retrograde Mars in sidereal Gemini will continue to be responsible for economical and global trade related crisis. Although it's a short term, the economical and political shocks that the world is going to experience due to the retrograde Mars will continue to be intense and will be reflected in increased political tension among developed nations, wild fluctuations in world financial markets, and destruction of wealth due to natural calamities or man made accidents. Other possibilities include blackouts in major cities, espionage in communication area, and failures of diplomatic efforts between nations. In addition, military personnel all around the world will likely to be confused with their goals and will undergo a transformation, and as a result, they may end up abandoning their original efforts and goals.

Political turmoil in Pakistan

Other important planetary configurations for December are: Pluto-Saturn ninefold square (Nov 6 - Dec 24) and Uranus-Saturn ninefold trine (Nov 20 - Jan 1), Mars-Jupiter opposition (Dec 24-28) and Mars-Pluto opposition (Dec 31 - Jan 5).

The Mars-Jupiter opposition may reflect in some creative form of religious or moral manifestation. It's an auspicious opposition providing a definite direction for a stalled situation for religious leaders and reformers. The Mars-Pluto opposition, which occurs just before the beginning of January and last through January 5, may become responsible for an escalating tension in the Middle East, and for unfortunate incidents that include both man-made and natural calamities all around the world.

While the Pluto-Saturn ninefold square is going to be responsible for continued violence and terrorism in Middle-East (Iraq, Iran, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Pakistan region) and perhaps social crisis in Russia and China, the auspicious ninefold  Uranus-Saturn trine will be positive for the United States, and it will be reflected in economic expansion, advances in technology and science, more research breakthroughs in biotechnology, medicine, high tech industry and engineering sciences. 

The countries that are likely to make headline news will be: Pakistan, Unites States, Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Palestine, Russia and China.

Dec 27: Pakistan's Bhutto killed in gun, bomb attack

  • United States of America:    

President Bush and his administration:  

President Bush's most operating and one of the currently dominating planets, Ketu (South lunar node) will transit though the 8th house of his ninefold progressive chart during December. Therefore, he is likely to suffer a series of setbacks in carrying out his policies both domestic (immigration) and international (Iraq post war, Pakistan turmoil, and Middle-East peace summit).

In addition, his other operating planet Pluto quincunxes his natal Saturn during the the first half of December, and it will reflect in his inability of governing the country and poorly dealing with international dignitaries.

Dec 31: Clock running on Bush presidency

On a positive a note, with Neptune's trine with his natal Rahu and Uranus, he still can, with the help of his advisors, manage to salvage his presidency by not taking the country in the extreme downhill direction.

The Country:

As mentioned earlier, the retrograde Mars in sidereal Gemini will continue to manifest in the form of natural and mostly man-made calamities during the entire month and beyond. U.S. Military personnel will likely to become odds with their non-military counterparts such as the State department and like.  Jupiter's entry in Sagittarius is positive for the country from the spirituality standpoint. The possibility of a severe religious or morality crisis is very likely especially during the second week of December.  The current belief systems will come under fire and will be tested. Certainly the present religious and morality based norms will be challenged by the new spiritual forces of human evolution.

Dec 8 : Historic split for U.S. Episcopals

The auspicious ninefold Uranus-Saturn trine will be positive for the United States, and it will be reflected in economic expansion, advances in technology and science, more research breakthroughs in biotechnology, medicine, high tech industry and engineering sciences. It is also positive for the democratic party.

Pluto-Saturn ninefold square will be dramatic and will force the Republican party to be transformed with a new set of objectives. As a result, the Republican party will continue to go through a severe period of negativity before it reaches its stability. 

        Russia:  Until December 24, the Pluto-Saturn ninefold square is not positive for Russia and the Putin administration. Russia is likely to be drawn in international politics with more vulnerability. Perhaps Russian policy may manifest as a source for increased tension between Iran and the United States. In general, except for the last week, the entire month is not positive for the country.  During this period man-made and natural calamities are likely. The relationship between the USA and Russia will continue to be strained during this month.

Dec 18: Iran Receives Nuclear Fuel in Blow to U.S.

        Europe:  Uranus-Saturn ninefold trine will certainly be positive for European Union from economic progress standpoint. The Euro will continue to rise against US dollar and other international currencies. However, the Pluto-Saturn ninefold square may become responsible for political instability and natural and man-made disasters. 

        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  For China the picture looks mixed. On one hand, the economic progress will continue at a phenomenal rate, but the Pluto-Saturn ninefold square (until December 24) is not positive from political stability and social unrest standpoint. Also, during this period natural and man-made calamities are likely. 

        Middle East:  The Pluto-Saturn ninefold square is going to be responsible for continued violence and terrorism in Middle-East (Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Pakistan region) during the first three weeks of the month. The notable dates for violence related activities are: December 1-24.

Dec 8: Rice flies to Iraq as Turkish troops cross border

Dec 18: Train derails in Pakistan, killing 50

        ReligionSince Jupiter will be in conjunction with Pluto during the second week of the month, the possibility of a severe religious or morality crisis during that period is very likely.  Our age-old beliefs will be tested. Certainly the present religious and morality based norms will be challenged by the new spiritual forces of human evolution.

Dec 8 : Historic split for U.S. Episcopals

        Natural and Man-made Calamities:  The likely notable dates are: Dec 11-13, 17-19, 24-28. 

Dec 17: Snowy storm dazes Northeast

      Dec 27: Pakistan's Bhutto killed in gun, bomb attack

      Earthquakes: Based on our earthquake prediction model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on December 9, 13-14, 18, 21-22 and 29-31.

Dec 9: Region: SOUTH OF FIJI ISLANDS, Geographic coordinates: 26.156S, 177.453W, Magnitude: 7.6 Mb, Universal Time (UTC): 9 Dec 2007 07:28:24, Time near the Epicenter: 9 Dec 2007 19:28:24

Dec 18: Region: ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN IS., Geographic coordinates: 51.495N, 179.472W, Magnitude: 7.2 Mw, Universal Time (UTC): 19 Dec 2007 09:30:30, Time near the Epicenter: 18 Dec 2007 23:30:30

There were two earthquakes of magnitude higher than 7 in December.  As listed above they occurred on December 9 and 18 as predicted above.

     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 December will begin with a mixed to bullish tone, then turn mixed for about five days, then bullish again, and ends the month with a mixed tone.

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: Mixed

December 2-13: Bullish

December 14-19: Mixed

December 20-28: Bullish

December 29-31: Mixed

Except for a few days, the world financial markets followed the predictions pretty closely through this month.
