Monthly Global Predictions for April 2017
Date Posted: March 31, 2017

 

About Uranus's entry in sidereal Aries ........

One of the important planetary events of 2017 is the transit of the modern planet Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. It will station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will enter Aries, and will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so. 

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. 

On 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.

About President Donald Trump and his challenges......

President Trump's operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Saturn and Venus. 

During April, Saturn  remains in sidereal Sagittarius, the seventh house of his progressive chart. In his ninefold progressive chart Saturn will be in the challenging 12th house for the the entire month. Venus will be in sidereal Pisces, the tenth house of his progressive chart.  Both of these planets will be unfavorable for him as the seventh house resident transiting Saturn makes matters more difficult to deal with, especially with his own cabinet members, and the 10th house resident transiting Venus, distracts him from his presidential duties due to forces of external influence. 

In addition, when the planetary transits with respect to his natal chart are considered, the transiting Saturn will quincunx the 11th house resident natal Venus during the entire month, and the manifestation of this particular transit may be reflected in situations that he will find beyond his control to deal with. 

Thus, the operating planets are unfavorable from the Dasa cycle standpoint, and the influence of transiting Saturn as explained above, may become responsible for yet another challenging month for him to deal with the people around him.

Also,  As indicated last October in my  US 2016 Presidential Election prediction,  column, as reproduced below, there is a very strong possibility that President Trump will have difficulty remaining in power and have to let that power go. 

"However, I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, the destiny of the United States, which in my opinion, is very much dependent on the transiting Uranus. And 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 the election outcome may not matter 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 the president of the USA will be a different one."   

 

About Brexit.....

Personally, 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. 

In 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 centuries.  

Uranus in Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and also Aries (ruled by Mars) being an extremely independent sign…this combination may prove to be very positive for UK.  But Uranus being whimsical and as it constantly demands change (therefore, unsteady) it had been interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 - September 4, 2016 in UK.  Because, after September 4, 2106, Uranus returned to sidereal Pisces and will stay in Pisces till April 6, 2017 a possibility of reversal of Brexit (which may very well be short lived) exists!  

Towards the end of March 2017, Britton announced its decision to completely breakaway from European Union by 2019.  It's interesting to note that this announcement came just around the time Uranus is ready to enter sidereal Aries. Let us see how Briton evolves during April.  It will be a glimpse or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.

 

Global Predictions......

The important challenging planetary configurations for April include Saturn-Mars (April 16-17) quincunx, Pluto-Jupiter (March 22 - April 5) and Mars-Rahu/Ketu (April 20-21) squares.

The Saturn-Mars (April 16-17) quincunx may become responsible for a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence, especially in the Middle-East area will be on rise. Outbreak of an undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities are also real possibilities.

The manifestation of the direct square of Jupiter with Pluto (March 22 - April 5) 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 norms. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic. 

The Rahu/Ketu-Mars (April 20-21) squares are likely to become responsible for both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives.

 

The important auspicious planetary configuration for April include Pluto-Neptune (March 8 - April 6) ninefold trine, Neptune-Rahu (April 21-28) and Uranus-Rahu (April 10-18) ninefold sextiles.

The Pluto-Neptune (March 8 - April 6) ninefold trine may turn out to be positive 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 manifestation of the Neptune-Rahu  (April 21-28) ninefold sextile may be reflected in significant progress in technology field via inventions and discoveries.  In addition, spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy and create a very healthy atmosphere around us.

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

 

About USA.....

The manifestation of the Neptune-Rahu  (April 21-28) ninefold sextile may be reflected in significant progress in technology field via inventions and discoveries.  In addition, spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy and create a very healthy atmosphere around us.

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 more likely to occur during April 16-17 and 20-21

      Earthquakes: Based on the Earthquake prediction model III the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on April 3-6, 8-9, 11, 14-15, 19, 21, 24-25. Please note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT). For your convenience, the earthquake predictions for the entire year 2017 is provided at Earthquake Predictions 2017

      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
