Monthly Global Predictions for August 2013
Date Posted: July 31, 2013

 

The important challenging planetary configurations for August include Pluto-Jupiter (Aug 3-11) opposition, Pluto-Saturn (Aug 11-18) ninefold quincunx and Uranus-Rahu (July 10 - Aug 29) quincunx, and Uranus-Rahu/Ketu (July 23 - Aug 7) ninefold squares and Uranus-Jupiter (Aug 13-20) square.

The Pluto-Jupiter opposition may become responsible for significant changes in religious, academic and to some extent in social fields. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic, but majority of us are going to embrace this new wave of change and are very likely to enjoy it.

The manifestation of Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunx may be reflected in an eruption of new waves of violence in Middle-East, especially in the Palestine-Israel, Syria and  Afghanistan-Pakistan regions; natural as well as man-made calamities, and to some extent, war-like climate in some part of the world. Some of the east-European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.

The Uranus-Rahu quincunx may become a cause for a difficult and challenging period for the the United States and in particular, the Republic Party. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

The Uranus-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares may become responsible for forcing President Obama and his administration to take extra precaution in dealing with foreign matters. During the same period, terrorist activities are likely to occur in the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel and Palestine). 

The Uranus-Jupiter square may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for world religions and religious leaders. The world religions are likely to be challenged with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. Those 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. Others are going to fade away with time. 

The auspicious planetary configurations for August include Neptune-Saturn (May 24 - Aug 5) and  Rahu-Jupiter (Aug 13-20) trines, and Rahu-Saturn (Aug 2-8) ninefold trine. 

The Nepune-Saturn trine is very positive for Russia and China. In addition, during the same time, most of the technological areas (especially biotech and social media) are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are also likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.

The manifestation of Rahu-Jupiter trine may be reflected in positive experiences that religions around the world are likely to enjoy.  People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  USA, Europe, Middle-East (Turkey, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel region), China and Russia,

  • United States of America:    

President Obama and his administration:  

Until February 2014, President Obama's operating planets will be Mercury and Pluto. In his progressive chart, the Mercury will remain in the 11th house of his progressive chart through August 4, in the 12th house through August 21, and in the 1st house during the rest of the month. Pluto is going to be in the fifth house of his progressive chart and in the first house of his ninefold progressive chart. While Pluto is favorable for him for August, Mercury will test his political will after August 4.  He will have tough time dealing with his counterparts on issues like health care and international dealings. 

The Country:

The Uranus-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares (till Aug 7) have been responsible for forcing President Obama and his administration to take extra precaution in dealing with foreign matters (such as crisis in Egypt). During the same period, terrorist activities are likely to occur in the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel and Palestine).  

The Uranus-Rahu quincunx may become responsible for new challenges for the Republic Party in shaping up its future as it has been going through a drastic transformation.  Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

        Russia:  During the first week of August, the Nepune-Saturn trine is very positive for Russia. In addition, during the same time, most of the technological areas (especially biotech and social media) are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries in Russia.

        Europe:  During the first two weeks of the month, the continent is likely to enjoy significant progress in religious, academic and to some extent in social fields. For the entire month, the Uranus-Rahu quincunx may become a cause of tension across Atlantic ocean. The manifestation of the Rahu-Jupiter trine will be reflected in positive experiences that religious world likely to enjoy.  People will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. 

        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  Until August 5, the manifestation of Saturn-Neptune trine will be reflected in economical growth for China, pacific rim-countries and Japan. 

        Middle East:  During the first week of the month, due to the ninefold squares of Uranus with the lunar nodes, the region is likely to see increased violence and unrest (especially in Turkey, Egypt, Syria, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine region). During the same period, both the natural and man-made calamities (with violence) are also likely. However, the influence of Rahu-Jupiter trine and Pluto-Jupiter opposition, during the other weeks of the month Middle is likely to enjoy relatively peaceful and stable period.

        Religion:  Due to the positive and auspicious influence of the Neptune-Saturn trine that runs through August 5, and due to positive influence of Pluto-Jupiter opposition and Rahu-Jupiter trine, the religious leaders and religions all around the world are likely to enjoy positive period.  However, the Uranus-Jupiter square is likely to challenge the world religious leaders with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. Those 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. Others are going to fade away with time. 

        Natural and Man-made Calamities:  The natural calamities like extreme weather conditions, wildfires, hurricanes, heavy rains, air crashes as well as man made accidents are very likely to occur during August 1-7 and 16-24.

      Earthquakes: Based on the earthquake prediction model II, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on August 10, 13-14, 16-18, 24, 27, 29.

     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
