Comments on last month's (December) Predictions
Date Posted: December 31, 2014

Comments on Global Predictions for the last month

December 29, 2014:

About Air Asia Flight QZ8501......

On Sunday morning at 7:55 a.m. (local time) Air Asia flight QS8501 was officially declared to be missing from the radar. It took off from the Indonesian city of Surabaya at 5:36 a.m. (local time) with 155 passengers and 7 crew members on board for Singapore. The flying time was a little over two hours.  

Based on the current sidereal planetary configurations, it seems to me that the influence of the current Uranus-Pluto square combined with the Neptune-Ketu (South node) ninefold conjunction might have been responsible for this event.  

Why Ketu?  Well...according to Vedic astrology, the lunar nodes, being karmic in nature are usually the source of challenges.  Presently Ketu is in conjunct with Uranus (within 3 degrees and it will be in exact conjunction with Uranus by January 31) in the water sign Pisces, and at the same time the ninefold Ketu conjuncts ninefold Neptune (disappearance, mystery).  In addition to the sidereal Piscean (water) resident Uranus (aviation) making the exact square with the Sagittarius Pluto, the water sign resident Ketu's ninefold conjunction with the air sign (Aquarius) resident Neptune makes a strong case for event like this.

Because of the water sign Ketu, it's very likely that the plane crashed over water.  

Until January 7 or 8, the Ketu-Neptune ninefold conjunction will remain with in a degree.  Considering the deceptive Neptune in play, it is likely that the cause of disappearance of the flight may take up to January 7 or 8. In the event if it extends beyond January 8, we may not know the cause and whereabouts of the flight till February 12 or 13 when Ketu separates from Uranus beyond one degree orb. 

Update (December 30) :    AirAsia plane crash site found; debris, bodies recovered from Java Sea

 

Saturn's transit in the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio

On October 31, Saturn entered the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio, and it will remain in Scorpio till January 26, 2017.

Scorpio being the water and fixed sign, for about the next two and half years, Saturn will strongly influence the world psyche, world religions, commerce, and economy. In addition, Scorpio (disease, epidemics) Saturn (restrictions, challenges) can be very conducive for spreading of viruses like Ebola.  Scorpio being a water sign (emotions, violence) and ruled by Mars (aggression, power and violence), it is the most complicated (misunderstood) sign of the zodiac, and when Saturn (the planet of restriction and challenges) transits through this sign, typical manifestation of this transit are: wars, violence, disagreements, sufferings, mental sickness, injustice, famine and chaos in general.

Those who have Saturn in Scorpio will see their lives transformed to a new setting (Saturn return) due to a drastic change (mostly at emotional and psychological level). In my opinion, it's going to be a very positive and exciting two and half years for those who have dominant Saturn in their birth chart and have Virgo, Gemini, Aquarius, and Capricorn as their natal ninefold (Navmansha) ascendant. 

In the next two and half years, on a world political scene, countries like India and Pakistan will make news headlines. Covert activities in most part of the world will be on rise. Terrorism or terrorist activities will gain new found momentum with increasing number of incidences. The Middle-East region will continue to be the battle ground, especially the countries like Syria, Israel, Palestine, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Turkey and Iran.

 

Global Predictions......

The important challenging planetary configurations for December include Neptune-Rahu (Dec 22-30) ninefold opposition; Neptune-Saturn (Dec 5-11) and Uranus-Rahu (Dec 5-19) ninefold quincunxes; Uranus-Jupiter (Dec 1-23) ninefold square and Pluto-Uranus (Nov 22-April 6) square.

The Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition may become responsible for social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China. Eastern Europeans are also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration.  Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of Neptune's secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.

Collapse of Rubble

The manifestation of Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx may be reflected in rise in covert activities, natural and man-made calamities. Places like Russia and China are likely to experience political and social turmoil. Non-democratic countries are likely to see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open. 

The influence of the Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx may be reflected difficult in period for the United States and in particular, for the Republic Party. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

Collapse of Rubble

The Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square may become responsible for the challenges religious leaders around the world are likely to face with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. The ones 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 ninefold square of Uranus with Pluto is likely to become responsible for a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that will result in a change in the current political agenda and foreign policy matters of the Obama administration 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. Expect some serious issues that the Obama administration could continue to get tangled with.

Passage of 1.1 trillion dollar budget

The auspicious planetary configurations for December include Rahu-Jupiter (Dec 7 - Jan 13) and Uranus-Saturn (Dec 14-19) ninefold trines; and Pluto-Rahu (Dec 10-17) 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 Uranus-Saturn ninefold trine may become responsible for excellent period for religious activities around the world. Also, this is a great time for the USA to make some extraordinary progress in enhancing her image both internationally and domestically.

The influence of the Pluto-Rahu ninefold sextile maybe reflected in a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

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

About President Obama....

For December 2014, President Obama's operating planets are going to be again the prominent planet, Mercury, and less prominent planets, Venus and Neptune. The month begins with Mercury in sidereal Scorpio and transits through Scorpio till December 13, it then enters sidereal Sagittarius and remains there for the rest of the month. Therefore, in his progressive chart, Mercury will remain in the 4th house till December 13, then in the 5th house for the rest of the month. 

Since the fourth house Mercury is favorable for him, during the first 13 days of December, Mercury will provide him the energy he needs to successfully deal with the both international and domestic crises and issues. However after December 13, he will be facing new challenges and difficulties and it will take lot of energy for him to overcome those challenges and difficulties.

December 10:  Successful passage of 1.1 trillion dollar budget

Venus being in the fourth and the fifth house will be favorable for him but 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, when he is confronted with crisis to make some critical decisions he needs to be aware of possibility of deception in his thinking process.

About USA.....

The ninefold square of Uranus with Pluto (Nov 22 - April 6) is likely to become responsible for a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and also with its domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy that will result in a change in the current political agenda and foreign policy matters of the Obama administration 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. Expect some serious issues that the Obama administration could get tangled with.

The influence of the Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx (December 5-19) may be reflected in a difficult period for the United States and in particular, for the Republic Party. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.      

        Russia:  The Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx (Dec 5-11) may become responsible for political and economic turmoil, rise in covert activities and the natural and man-made calamities. The Uranus-Saturn ninefold trine means a better relationship between Russia and the USA.  The influence of the Neptune-Rahu ninefold (Dec 22-30) opposition may be reflected in covert activities with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.

Collapse of Rubble

        Europe:  The manifestations of the Uranus-Saturn (Dec 14-19) and the Rahu-Jupiter (Dec 7 - Jan 13) ninefold trines maybe reflected in for excellent period for religious activities and positive developments with respect to religions. Europeans will likely to be convinced with the importance of moral values and will have no difficulty in maintaining their religious faith. During the last week of the month, however the possibility of the economic turmoil exists.

        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  The positive influence of the Uranus-Saturn and the Rahu-Jupiter ninefold trines will be reflected in positive period for the region  from the economical and social progress standpoint.  However, the influence of the Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition (Dec 22-30) may become responsible for politically challenging period for China. 

        Middle East:  Under the influence of the ninefold quincunx of Uranus and Rahu (Dec 5-19) and the Pluto-Uranus square (Dec 1-30) the terrorist activities will be on rise all through the month.

        Religion:  Except for the first week of the month religious world is likely to enjoy positive period during this month. 

        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 December 5-11 and 14-31.

December 28:  Disappearance of Air Asia Flight QZ8501 between Indonesia and Singapore. 

      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 December 3-7, 9-11, 16, 18, 25, 28-29. Please note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT).

There was no earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher occurred in December.

      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 distinct bearish tone, followed by a mixed week.  Then a couple of days of bearish market, followed by a mixed market lasting till the end 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.

December 1-9: Bearish

December 10-17: Mixed

December 18-19: Bearish

December 20-31: Mixed

With the exception of few days, the world financial markets pretty much  followed  the predictions during the month.
