Monthly Global Predictions for October 2015
Date Posted: September 30, 2015

 

Retrograde Mercury (Sept 18 - Oct 10) 

On September 18, the planet Mercury became retrograde in sidereal Virgo. It will stay retrograde in Virgo until October 10. Typically retrograde Mercury means anxieties, communication breakdowns, unexpected delays, frustrations, missing deadlines, unforeseen obstacles and disappointment in daily chores. Retrograde Mercury in Virgo means more frustrating periods for detail oriented people such as accounts, researchers, bookkeepers, also for people in agriculture and forest areas, people in small businesses and diplomats. This is the time not to start a new project or venture, but rather reflect on what's been done so far.  Also, this is the best time to cleanup that closet and do other chores that you have been postponing due to lack of time.

In addition, if you have dominating Mercury in your birth chart and if Mercury is currently your operating planet, then you are more likely to experience the pronounced effects of retrograde Mercury during this period with respect to matters signified by the house it's transiting in your progressive chart.

 

Global Predictions......

The important challenging planetary configurations for October include Neptune-Mars (Oct 5-7) opposition; Uranus-Mars (Oct 22-24) quincunx; Neptune-Saturn (Sept 27 - Oct 3), Uranus-Saturn (Oct 8-12), Pluto-Rahu (Oct 10-19) and Saturn-Rahu (Oct 18-21) ninefold quincunxes; Saturn-Mars (Oct 23-26) square and Pluto-Saturn (Oct 20-26) ninefold conjunction.

The Neptune-Mars opposition (Oct 5-7) may become responsible for rise in covert activities among leading nations. China and Russia are likely to experience some very drastic changes in the political arena, and those changes will influence the psyche of those nations at a deeper level.

The Uranus-Mars quincunx (Oct 22-14) may become the cause for natural and man-made calamities in the United States of America.

The manifestation of Neptune-Saturn (Sept 27 - Oct 3) ninefold quincunx maybe reflected in rise in covert activities among the leading nations. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities are very likely during this period.  

The Uranus-Saturn (Oct 8-12) ninefold quincunx may become responsible for social or political turmoil in the United States, Russia and/or China, and at the same time tensions rising among these nations.

While the influence of the Pluto-Rahu (Oct 10-19) ninefold quincunx may be reflected in an eruption of new waves of violence in the Palestine-Israel, Syria and  Afghanistan-Pakistan regions, the manifestation of the Saturn-Rahu (Oct 18-21) ninefold quincunx maybe reflected in turmoil for the Republican party in the USA.

The Saturn-Mars (Oct 23-26) square is likely to become responsible for a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence around the world, especially in Iraq and Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an undesirable happening, and occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities are strong possibilities.

The Pluto-Saturn (Oct 20-26) ninefold conjunction may mean higher probability of the outbreak of violence and terrorism around the world. Also, natural calamities like earthquakes, severe weather conditions, natural as well as man made accidents are more likely during this period.

The most auspicious planetary event of October is the Pluto-Jupiter (October 6-15) trine. This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This auspicious trine could become responsible for a unique transformation in the field of religion as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. 

As a result, religious and academic and to some extent social fields are very likely to see changes happening in their respective 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 this month are:  Russia, China, USA and Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions) and India.

 

About President Obama....

President Obama's operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Mercury and Sun.  During October, the retrograde Virgo Mercury becomes direct on October 10 and stays in Virgo till October 30 (and in the 2nd house of his progressive chart). On October 30, it enters sidereal Libra (the third house of his progressive chart).

The second house Mercury means a frustrating period for him. And it can also be painful at times.  However, the second House mercury does bring success for him during this month.   During Mercury's retrograde period (Oct 1-10) he is likely to get more frustrated with Congress, especially with respect to the Iran deal and other international matters. Things may appear to be not going well for him. After October 10, despite his continued stressful and frustrating situation, the remaining part of October is very likely to turn out to be positive for him.

The other planet, Sun is presently transiting through the second house of his progressive chart till Oct 18. And then for the remaining part of the month, through the third house of his progressive chart.  As a result, until Oct 18, he might have to go through the experience of being betrayed.  For the remaining part of the month, Sun being in the third house of his progressive chart, he is likely to experience a very positive ans successful period.

About USA.....

While the manifestation of the Uranus-Saturn (Oct 8-12) ninefold quincunx maybe reflected in a social or political turmoil, the Saturn-Rahu (Oct 18-21) ninefold quincunx may become responsible for a chaotic situation for the Republican party. 

 

Religion....       

The most auspicious planetary event of October is the Pluto-Jupiter (October 6-15) trine. This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This auspicious trine could become responsible for a unique transformation in the field of religion as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. 

As a result, religious and academic and to some extent social fields are very likely to see changes happening in their respective 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.

Natural and Man-made Calamities........

      The natural calamities like extreme weather conditions, wildfires, hurricanes, heavy rains, snow storms, air crashes as well as man made accidents are likely to occur during October 5-7,10-19, 22-24 and 27-30.

      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 October 7-12, 17-18, 20 and 23.  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
