Council for Geocosmic Research) 2017 National Conference in
Baltimore during February 16-20, 2017.
light of Trump's presidential election victory, it seems that (as
mentioned in election prediction analysis) the powerful placement of Rahu and
Uranus in the tenth house of the Trump's natal chart overcame all the odds
(establishments, Clinton-machine, Obama's strong support for Mrs. Clinton,
prominent celebrities, etc.,) and gave Trump the victory confirming, for
better or worse, the
powerful and total alignment of his Karma
with the USA's destiny.

Neptune-Ketu (the South Lunar Node) conjunction
and the presidential election uncertainty! ..............
Neptune, the planet of
deception, if while transiting conjuncts either of the transiting lunar nodes
and if the lunar nodes happen to be prominent planets in the natal chart of an
individual, then the individual faces tremendous amount of uncertainty in
navigating through his or her life during that period. This is exactly
what's happening to both of the presidential nominees (Clinton and Trump) since the
conjunction between the Neptune and Ketu (the south lunar node) within a
longitudinal degree of each other started forming about 21 days ago, and it will
continue through for another 13 days. On October 28, it was the perfect
conjunction when the FBI dropped the bombshell about the discovery of Clinton
emails on former Rep. Anthony Weiner's electronic devices. And about two week
prior to it, the bombshell video of bragging of Mr. Trump about the unwanted
sexual advances towards women without their consent appeared.
As outlined in detail about US
2016 Presidential Election prediction ,
and was posted on September 30, the uncertainty certainly
continues. The interesting thing about it is both of these candidates are
vulnerable due to the prominent positions of the lunar nodes in their natal
charts. But considering the planetary transits on the election day, between Mr.
Trump and Secretary Clinton, the planets slightly favor Mrs. Clinton, and
therefore, (as I already noted in my prediction analysis) Secretary Clinton will
likely to eek out a narrow victory over Mr. Trump.
I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, looking at the
destiny of the United States, which, in my opinion, is very much dependent on
the transiting Uranus, the picture of future of the USA is very different.
Because the retrograde Uranus being temporarily
back in the sidereal Pisces and will not return to sidereal Aries (the
cardinal fire sign) until April 2017, there's a strong possibility that this election outcome
may not matter at all come April 2017. Without being sensationalizing and
dramatizing the future of the United States, I think that when Uranus
returns to sidereal Aries in April 2017 it will
certainly and drastically change the political landscape. As a result, it's very
likely that the person who will be the leading the world's powerful nation
then as a president will be a different one.
About Uranus's entry
in sidereal Aries ........
of the important planetary events of 2016 is the transit of the modern planet
Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. Uranus entered sidereal Aries on June 24, and it stayed there till September 4
before it returned to Pisces due to its retrograde motion. It will
station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will return to Aries, and
will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so.
it was in
a short while (June 24 - Sept 4) before it returns to Aries again next year, Uranus being the planet
of change will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries
being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for
independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in
world political landscape is going to be
tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries. The people who are most
affected by this transit are military personnel, business and political leaders. In scientific and
technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will
find their way into innovations and discoveries. The
scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace. A
new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on
world order will certainly
transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to.
individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready
for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is
a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be
sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage,
profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.
I don’t put a lot of stalk in the chart of a country since before the
inception time of the chart the land existed. Instead, I look at the
characteristics of the zodiac signs and planets associated with that land
and the planetary transits.
my opinion, UK is very closely tied with the sign Aries, a cardinal and
fiery sign ruled my mighty Mars, and where Sun gets exalted. This is
clearly reflected in the way Briton dominated the world in last few
Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and Aries
(ruled by Mars)
being extremely independent sign…this combination may produce very
positive for UK. (read above about the Uranus's transit in Aries). But
Uranus being whimsical and
as it constantly demands change (therefore
has been interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 -
September 4 in UK. Because Uranus has returned to sidereal Pisces after
Sept 4 and will stay in Pisces till April 6, 2017 a possibility of reversal of Brexit
(which may very well be short lived) exists! Let
us see how Briton evolves during next few months. It will be a glimpse
or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.
President Obama and his challenges......
President Obama's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be
Sun. In addition, Moon will remain as an operating
planet for him till November 11. After November 11, Moon
will be replaced with Ketu as the operating planet.
During November, Mercury remains in sidereal Libra (the third house of his progressive
chart) till November 9, it enters Scorpio (the fourth house of his
progressive chart) and remains in Scorpio till the November 28,
then it enters Sagittarius (the fifth house of his progressive chart),
and remains there till the end of the month.
Until November 9, he will continue to have difficult time in
dealing with his adversaries people. After November
9, the favorable fourth house Mercury he will successfully
manage his job of governing the
country. However, after November 28, he may have to
deal with a frustrating period
Sun is presently transiting through the
favorable third house of his progressive chart till November 16. And then
for the remaining
part of the month, through an unfavorable fourth house of his progressive chart. As a result, till
November 16, from Sun's transit standpoint, he
is likely to continue his successful dealing with both the
domestic and international political challenges, but later
(after November 16) he may have to face with disappointment,
delays and mental stress in governing the country.
far as Moon is concerned, because it's very favorably (exalted
Moon) placed in his natal chart, despite the negative influence
of Mercury and Sun, until November 11, he will successfully manage his
presidency and the popularity.
Ketu, being in the 7th house of both of his progressive and
ninefold progressive charts, after November 11, his character or
his being will be tested through the unique challenges that deal
with morality and general well being of American people.
And he is likely to do very well in that test.
summing the influence of all the operating planets as explained above,
overall, the entire month (except perhaps last week of the
month) looks to be
positive for him.
The important challenging planetary
for November include Neptune-Rahu (Oct 7 - Nov 22) opposition, Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 - Nov 5) ninefold quincunx,
Pluto-Jupiter (Nov 18-30) square and Pluto-Saturn (Nov 7-14) ninefold square.
(Oct 7 - Nov 22) opposition may become responsible for social as well as economic
turmoil in Russia and China. Eastern European
also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration. Covert activities around the world
will find a new momentum with regard to terrorism and
other international conflicts, such as alleged email hacking by Russia and/or
Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 - Nov 5) ninefold quincunx has been bringing a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other
nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda, and also with its domestic matters.
However, there might be some serious issues that the Obama administration could get
The manifestation of the direct
square of Jupiter with Pluto (Nov 18-30) maybe reflected in
some drastic changes in religious and academic world since this
square will create
religious challenges 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
reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps
(Nov 7-14) ninefold square may become responsible for
political or social upheaval in Russia and to some extent in
The important auspicious planetary configuration for
November include, Pluto-Rahu (Nov 9-16) ninefold sextile and
Pluto-Neptune (Nov 17 - Dec 17) ninefold trine.
(Nov 9-16) ninefold sextile may become responsible for progress in
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation. Also,
this is a good period for economy.
The manifestation of the Pluto-Neptune
(Nov 17 - Dec 17) ninefold trine may be reflected in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major
terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia
and to some extent for China. Also, on technological front, expect some positive
breakthroughs in medical, high technology and biotechnology fields.
The countries that are
more likely to be affected during
month are: Russia, China, USA, Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel
Pluto-Uranus ninefold quincunx and Jupiter-Pluto square
may become responsible for chaotic political and social
environment with the underlying current of deeply divided
republic. There is a possibility of a transformation
of the current chaotic situation with creative dialogues
between these two factions to a level where understanding
the bigger picture of where the republic will
be headed if we continue the path we are on.
Although it's an arduous path that might take several
years, the seeding of the process of of transformation may
take place during this period.
