Monthly Global Predictions for January 2015
Date Posted: December 31, 2014

 

Global Predictions......

The important challenging planetary configurations for January include Uranus-Rahu (Jan 19 - Feb 10) opposition; Rahu-Mars (Jan 27-29) quincunx; Uranus-Saturn (Jan 20 - Feb 4) and Saturn-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 28 - Feb 1) ninefold squares; Pluto-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 9-31), Saturn-Mars (Jan 13-15) and Pluto-Uranus (Nov 22-April 6) squares.

The Uranus-Rahu (Jan 19 - Feb 10) opposition may become responsible for a difficult and challenging period for the United States, and in particular, the Republican Party and republicans. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

The manifestation of the the Rahu-Mars (Jan 27-29) quincunx maybe reflected in both the natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international political leader.

The Uranus-Saturn (Jan 20 - Feb 4) ninefold square means social or political turmoil for the USA, Russia and/or China as well as the increasing friction between the USA and Russia or China.

The ninefold squares of the lunar nodes Ranu and Ketu with Saturn (Jan 28 - Feb 1) may become responsible for the rise in barbaric activities all around the world. Terrorists are likely to be successful in creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in Europe and Russia is likely. Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.

The influence of Saturn-Mars (Jan 13-15) square may result in a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan, terrorism and violence around the world, especially in Iraq and Israel-Palestine area, the outbreak of an undesirable happening and the occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities.

The manifestation of the squares of the lunar nodes with Pluto (Jan 9-31) maybe reflected in a new wave of renewed violence between Israel and Palestinians.

The ninefold square of Uranus with Pluto (Nov 22-April 6) has been becoming responsible for changes in the way the Obama administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism and other international as well as domestic matters. There has been a transformation of a political strategy (dealing with the ISIS and other militant groups) of the Obama administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy and power has been irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or settings with a new set of norms.

The auspicious planetary configurations for January include Rahu-Jupiter (Dec 7 - Jan 13) and Naptune-Saturn (Jan 14-26) ninefold trines; and Saturn-Rahu (Jan 4-7) ninefold sextile. 

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

The Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine's influence may be positive for Russia and China. In addition, most of the technological areas (especially biotech and high-tech) are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  United States, Russia, China, North Africa, Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions) and India.

About President Obama....

For January 2015, President Obama's operating planets are going to be the prominent planet, Mercury, and less prominent planets, Venus and Neptune. The month begins with Mercury in sidereal Capricorn (and in the 6th house of his progressive chart) and on January 22, Mercury becomes retrograde in Capricorn and remains in Capricorn through the entire month. 

Since the sixth house Mercury is favorable (popularity, gains and success) for him, he is likely to enjoy Mercury's positive energy to successfully deal with the both international and domestic issues throughout the entire month.

Venus transits through the sixth and the seventh house of his progressive chart through January, and he might find bit more stressful to deal with females; and Neptune, being in the 7th house of his progressive chart, will continue to play a role of deception in dealing with people around him.  As a result of this Neptune's placement, when and if he is confronted with crisis to make some critical decisions he needs to be aware of the possibility of a deception in his thinking process.

About USA.....

The ninefold square of Uranus with Pluto (Nov 22 - April 6) means a new political drama between the Obama administration and the both houses of congress. There will be a big transformation of a political strategy that president Obama will adapt to for dealing with the congress as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. 

The influence of the Uranus-Saturn (Jan 20 - Feb 4) ninefold square will be reflected in the escalating  friction between the Democrats and the Republicans as the new term begins.

        Russia:  The Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine (Jan 14-26) may turn out to be positive for Russia from political and social stability standpoint. However, the simultaneous influence of the Uranus-Saturn (Jan 20 - Feb 4) and Saturn-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 28 - Feb 1) ninefold squares will be reflected in social, economic and political turmoil as well as the increasing friction with the USA.

         Europe:  While the first two weeks of the month are positive for the continent from the economic and social stability point of view, the second half of the month may prove to be challenging with respect to economic and political stability and social turmoil. During the same period relationship with the USA and EU may become sour and the religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.

        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  While the Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine (Jan 14-26) may turn out to be positive for China the influence of the Uranus-Saturn (Jan 20 - Feb 4) and Saturn-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 28 - Feb 1) ninefold squares will be reflected in social, economic and political turmoil as well as the increasing friction with the USA.  The first half of the month is positive for the rest of the region from economic growth standpoint.

        Middle East:  The influence of Saturn-Mars (Jan 13-15) square may result in a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan, terrorism and violence around the world, especially in Iraq and Israel-Palestine area, the outbreak of an undesirable happening and the occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities. The manifestation of the squares of the lunar nodes with Pluto (Jan 9-31) maybe reflected in a new wave of renewed violence between Israel and Palestinians.

        Religion:  The first half of the month is relatively quiet and positive.  But during the second half of the month the religious leaders around the world are likely to face with new challenges with respect to the traditional norms. 

        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 January  9-13 and 17-31.

      Earthquakes: Based on the latest earthquake prediction model III (yet to be published) the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on January 2, 6, 8, 10, 13-16, 18-20, 27, 29 and 31 Please note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT). For your convenience, the earthquake predictions for the entire year 2015 is provided at Earthquake Predictions 2015.

      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
