The important challenging planetary
configurations for January include ninefold squares of
Uranus-Jupiter (Jan 8-23) and Uranus-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 23-30); and
Saturn-Jupiter (Jan 30 - Feb 4) ninefold quincunx.
The auspicious planetary configurations for January are: Neptune-Saturn (Dec 22 - Feb 2)
trine, Pluto-Rahu (Jan 24-30) ninefold trine, and Pluto-Jupiter (Dec 18 - Jan 23) ninefold
and Uranus-Ketu ninefold squares may become responsible for terrorist activities
in the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel and Palestine) and North African region. Also,
these squares may challenge President Obama and his administration
for dealing with foreign matters that might require taking extra
manifestation of the Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square may
be reflected in challenges that world religious leaders are
likely to face, particularly those challenges will be more
pronounced in the United States. The religious
leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new
and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our
religious world to a new level. In addition, the Saturn-Jupiter ninefold
quincunx may become responsible for added challenges in carrying
out their existing agenda in light of today's changing spiritual

period for Russia and China. Also, most of the
technological areas are likely to make significant progress via inventions and
discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive
energy and create a very healthy atmosphere around us.
Pluto-Rahu ninefold trine will be responsible for a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
ninefold sextile is likely to manifest itself in changes
in religious and academic and to
some extent social fields. Initial
reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic,
but the majority of us are going to embrace this new wave of change and are very
likely to enjoy it.
The countries that are
more likely to be affected during
month will be: United States of
America, Russia, China, European countries and Middle-East (Libya, Syria, Saudi-Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Iran,
Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel region).
President Obama and his administration:
President Obama's operating
planet Neptune has been opposing his natal Rahu since
mid-July, 2011 and will continue opposing his natal Rahu till January 20,
2012. With Neptune in the seventh house of his
progressive chart, it has been a challenging and deceptive environment
that he has been dealing with, making it difficult for him to deal with the current
pressing issues: the economy, international dealings, and
deficit. The Neptune in the fourth
house of his ninefold progressive chart will force him to deal
with the domestic issues, such as homeland security and immigration.
Furthermore, the ninefold Saturn will conjunct the ninefold
Neptune in the fourth house making it extremely challenging for
him to deal with domestic political issues during the second
half of January when Saturn becomes an operating planet for him.
In addition, after January 17, Mars becomes an operating planet
for him, and Mars being in the first house his progressive chart
and becoming retrograde on January 24, his patience will be
tested to its limit as he will be forced to deal with political
challenges that will put him not only on defensive but those
challenges will annoy and irritate him a great deal. However,
with Jupiter in Aries, the 9th house (11th from the eleventh) of his progressive
chart and in the 11th house of his ninefold progressive chart,
and Pluto's trine with his natal Pluto, he will still be able to
success in leading the country
The ninefold squares of the lunar nodes with
Uranus are not positive for the country during the last week of
the month, and their manifestations are likely to be reflected
in natural accidents and
man-made calamities during that week. The Uranus-Jupiter
ninefold square may become responsible for challenges that
religious leaders must face in promoting their agenda. On a
positive note, the influence of Neptune-Saturn trine will
reflected in positive
period for most of the
technological areas, as those areas are likely to make significant progress via inventions and
discoveries. Also, the month of January may turn out to be a positive month for
republican leaders and the republic party.
Russia: The manifestation of Neptune-Saturn trine will be
reflected in positive
period for Russia during the entire month.
Europe: Except for the last week
of the month (Jan 23-30), the month looks to be
positive for Europe from the economical growth and political stability standpoint. During
the second and the third week of the month, religious leaders
may come under pressure to defend their activities as people are
likely to question their agenda. The positive influence of
Neptune-Saturn trine will be reflected in sense of security,
well being and general happiness.
China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:
For China, the manifestation of Neptune-Saturn trine will be
reflected in political stability and economic expansion.
Except for the third week of the month, the entire month looks
to be favorable for the region from economical growth standpoint.
During the third week of the month, occurrences of natural
calamities or man-made accidents are likely.
Middle East: Except for the last
week of the month, the month of January may prove to be
relatively less violent and more peaceful than other times for
the region. The auspicious Neptune-Saturn trine may prove to be
boon for the region from the moral transformation and economical
growth standpoint. The religious leaders will certainly come
pressure and unless they modify their norms to meet the current
social and moral needs they will become less relevant. The
Uranus-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares may
become responsible for violence and unrest in Middle East during
the last week of the month.
Religion: The challenging influence of the
Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square will test the will of the
religious leaders around the world. The present way of
looking at the religion to find the meaning for life will
certainly go through a period of transformation.

extreme weather conditions, wildfires, hurricanes, heavy rains, air
crashes as well as man made accidents
