Monthly Prediction for December 2000
Date Posted: November 30, 2000
    4) Comments for the previous month's predictions:

Comments for the last month's predictions (For those who are interested in following up last month's predictions against the actual events):

In general, from astrological predictions standpoint the month of November predictions turn out to be pretty close to their targets; thus, making it probably the most successful month for me for predictions during the year 2000.  Predictions really speak for themselves.

The following were the expectations from planetary influence for the last month.

    During this month, the favorable ninefold trine between Uranus and Neptune will continue to provide the excellent environment for economic expansion via scientific discoveries and inventions, and also for merger and acquisitions in the financial world. However, ninefold squares between Saturn and lunar nodes (Rahu and Ketu) exerting their influence until the November 17, and the squares between Uranus and lunar nodes which begin on November 25 and last through December 4 will likely exert far more negative influence creating unfavorable and detrimental atmosphere for world politics and economy.  Based on October results the influence of the negative forces manifesting due to ninefold squares are likely to be far more serious in nature, thus, probably easily outweighing the favorable positive forces of Uranus and Neptune ninefold trine. As a result, it seems that a period of extreme volatile activities in world of politics, economics, and religion can not be ruled out. 

    Seems like November prediction turns out to be pretty accurate, especially in the area of politics and economy.

    The Ketu-Jupiter opposition is likely to cause some tension in religious world. The Uranus-Saturn ninefold opposition will likely to show us a potential conflict between the United States and Russia as well as between the United States and China.  In addition, the latter opposition may likely to intensify a battle of ideology between liberals and conservatives in the United States. Overall, November very well may turn out to be a month of world tension and uncertainty in areas of politics, religion, and economy.

    Again similar comment as above is in order.  I would welcome readers comments since I really haven't kept pace with world events.

    The current Middle East crisis are likely to continue until November 17 or so due to negative influence of Saturn-Rahu and Saturn-Ketu (Rahu and Ketu are lunar nodes) ninefold squares far outweighing the favorable influence of Uranus-Neptune ninefold trine.  Therefore, its more likely that these squares may manifest in a very negative force and create unfavorable climate for both political and economical conditions all around the world. 

    For Israeli-Palestinian crisis.....How true!  

            United States: The first week of November suits just fine for Clinton Administration. However, it would be heavily involved in dealing with international affairs such as Middle East violence, international terrorism, and perhaps Euro-currency crisis. The second week activities are likely to be dominated by the national elections. Around November 19, some kind of serious political crisis are likely to occur that would involve Russia as well as China with the United States. To top it all expect some additional problems surfacing around November 25 for Clinton administration as well as for the country.  Setbacks in foreign policy with Russia and China during the last week of the month are likely. Also, during November 19 through December 4 period, Mr. Clinton might want to consider taking extra precaution in whatever he does and deals with. The same precaution is also likely to hold for the president-elect.  It's not exactly a positive period for the country's leader.

    Seems like in the USA the latter part of the month was dominated by the election 2000 news (uncertainty, confusion, and frustration) reflecting the above prediction.  I would like to hear your comments.

    Saturn-Rahu and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares are not very positive for the republic Party. The influence of these squares is going to last through November 17.  Therefore, I'm not very optimistic about republicans making gains in seats for both House and Congress. However, I'm not sure if they would lose their current majority in either House or Senate. Overall it doesn't look positive for the Republic Party to gain seats in House and Senate this time.

    To my knowledge Democrats have gained seats in both the senate and the house at the expense of Republican losses. 

    As far as the presidential election is concerned, it appears that Democrats have a better chance of winning.  I must confess that due to lack of confirmed birth information I have not analyzed birth chart of either of these candidates. But based on the planetary configurations, especially the ninefold square between lunar nodes and Saturn (Saturn due its conservative nature signifies Republic Party) Republic Party is likely to perform poorly. It may be possible that Bush can win election if his current operating cycle is  influenced by planet such as Uranus or Jupiter.  

    Update November 3, 2000

    For presidential election prediction with analysis please check out the presidential election prediction page.

    For detail comments please refer to the presidential election prediction page.

    Democrats are likely to gain seats in both the House and Senate. As far as Gore's victory is concerned without analyzing his birth chart it's difficult to predict if he is going to win the election.  But overall, democrats have a lot better odds to win over republicans.

            Russia: Saturn-Rahu and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares, and Uranus-Saturn ninefold opposition occurring in the later half of the month may lead to a severe crisis situation both economically and politically. However, Neptune-Saturn ninefold sextile may provide some relief during November 18-23 period. In general, Russians are likely to face severe setbacks in pursing their current economic expansion efforts. As pointed out earlier, expect some political tension between USA and Russia during the second half of the month.  

    Have no idea what's going on in Russia.  Please provide your comments.

            China, Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries:   On a political level, China is very likely to face severe challenges in resolving political and economic issues at home. The newly improved relationship between USA and China is likely to go a bit sour during the second half of the month.  But from economic standpoint, the entire pacific-rim region, China, Japan, and Hong Kong are likely to face serious problems.  

    Any comments?

            Europe:  This month is likely to turn out to be probably the worst month for Europe.  In addition to already existing euro currency crisis, emergence of tensions and some sort of chaos is likely to manifest during the first half of the month.  Second half of the month may see some recovery and perhaps some positive developments to relieve some of the difficult situations. A situation is likely to develop during the last half of the month causing some friction between the United States and Europe.

    Besides record break rain in England and weak Euro, don't quite know how November faired for Europe.

  • Indian Subcontinent:  The relationship between India and Pakistan is likely turn for worse during the first three weeks of November.  It's possible that later in the month United States may get involved as a mediator or broker to handle the dispute between the two countries.

Does anybody know what has been going on there in the Indian Subcontinent?  May be nothing happened.

            Religion:  The month of November may go down in history as one of the most challenging and difficult month of the year 2000 for world religious activities. The latter half of the month is going to see some serious crisis developing in the religious world especially in the continent of Europe and Middle East. During November 25 through December 4 period, very drastic changes are likely to occur as friction between conservatives and liberal religious personalities rise.

            Natural and Man-made Calamities: Until November 17, Saturn-Rahu, and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares are likely to be responsible for natural calamities occurring all around the world. In addition, Saturn-Jupiter, and Uranus-Rahu and Uranus-Ketu squares are likely to add fuel to the fire. Pretty much the entire month (except few days) is likely to be prone to natural as well as man made calamities. The first half month is likely to see these calamities happening more in Europe, Russia, Middle East area while the second half more in the both American continents. While the man-made calamities may manifest in terrorism, unrest, violence, and accidents, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters in the northern hemisphere, and equally intensive droughts in the southern hemisphere; and thunderstorms, earthquakes, fires, and natural accidents.

    I know there were several items in news pertaining to accidents and natural calamities that dominated November news all around the world.  The few I know were: bombing in Jerusalem, record rain and flooding in Europe (especially England), and train crash in Austria.

2) World Financial Markets

Financial markets around the world are likely to continue to be very volatile. Although historically the month of November more likely turns out to be bullish, this time around, however, the bears are more likely to stay in control. Thus, the general trend for November is likely to be bearish, particularly towards the month end.

It must be noted that the following predictions basis mainly include the influence of slow moving modern planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto), Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars.  For ninefold analysis the fast moving planets like Mercury, Venus, Sun, and Moon can also influence the outcome of financial markets but are difficult to account for as the analysis process becomes too complex to predict for the entire month.  Therefore, should it become necessary to account for the influence of fast moving planets (which at this time I can only predict for 2 to 3 days out in future) I hope to provide the timely advanced updates whenever appropriate.

November 1 November 4:  Bearish to mixed

November 5 November 7: Mixed

November 8 November 17: Mixed to bearish  

November 18 November 19: Bullish

November 20 November 23: Mixed to bearish  

November 24 November 30: Bearish  

Overall this month's world financial market predictions were pretty accurate, making it probably the best month for me. I have received several mails confirming the predictions.



US Presidential Election Prediction
Date Posted: November 3, 2000 

Recent updates are towards the bottom



    Based on the following (unconfirmed) birth information,


    Governor George W. Bush

    Birth Date: July 6, 1946

    Birth Time: 7:26 AM (EDT)

    Birth Place: New Haven, CT  (41.3 N; 72.93 W)


    Vice President Al Gore

    Birth Date: March 31, 1948

    Birth Time: 12:53 PM (EST)

    Birth Place:  Washington D.C.


    (and assuming they have no personal objection in analyzing their charts,) the analysis is as follow:


    Applying bird's eye view it seems to me that Vice President's birth time is likely to be off by about half an hour to hour since for what he has achieved in his life thus far doesn't even closely reflect in the birth chart based on the above time. There is not a single planet on or near cusp of any house. And therefore, the horoscope or chart reduces to that of an average person. My guess is his birth time is probably somewhere around 1:30 to 1:50 PM.  Based on this assumption I have used 1:40 PM to be his approximate birth time.


    Since most of the readers are probably not very interested in astrological jargon I have kept astrological details to minimum. For those who are interested in these details may directly contact me via e-mail.  This analysis is based on sidereal (fixed) zodiac system and the method of interpretation is mostly according to Vedic astrology.


    Governor George Bush


    Governor is born under Cancer ascendant (rising sign) with Mercury and Pluto right on the ascendant cusp. Moon, the ruler of the ascendant (first house) is in Virgo in the third house thus exchanges house with Mercury. Moon is in conjunction with auspicious Jupiter.  Same time Uranus and Rahu are in conjunction in the eleventh house, the house of fame, money, PRship, representative of masses.  In addition, both Jupiter and Moon are in auspicious trine with eleventh house Uranus and Rahu. This trine and Uranus, Rahu and Moon, Jupiter conjunctions virtually assures Governor that he has a potential to become a world leader, especially when the planetary cycles which provide the positive influence of Uranus, Rahu, Moon, and Jupiter are in operation. 


    In governor's ninefold birth chart with Scorpio ascendant, there are 6 planets in the tenth house, the house of profession, action, and achievements. These are: Rahu, Mars, Uranus (within in 3 degrees), and Moon, Saturn, and Jupiter (Moon and Saturn with in 3 degrees).  This confirms that politics is the destiny of this man.  Note the planets Uranus, Rahu, Moon, and Jupiter all coming together in the tenth house of his ninefold birth chart virtually assures him that he would be a very successful politician.  And he certainly has a potential of becoming the ultimate politician and the world leader, the president of the United states.


    According to Vedic astrology, since all of the planets in the Governor's birth chart reside on one side of the the lunar nodes, this chart may be affected by Kal-Surp-Yog (meaning a possibility of being a bit unlucky in achieving what the person deserves or the final victory may be denied).  However, in my opinion, this is really not true since the planet Uranus is at 26 1/4 degrees of Taurus (just before and not after the ascending lunar node Rahu) while Rahu is at 26 1/2 degrees of Taurus.


    On the election day (November 7) evening the planets that influence Governor's day are: Saturn, Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, Rahu, and Mars.  Note all of these planets reside in the tenth house of his ninefold natal chart.  In his progressive chart for that day Saturn and Jupiter are in the seventh house, Moon in the fifth house, Rahu in the eighth house, Mars in the eleventh, and Uranus in the third. In the corresponding ninefold progressive chart Saturn is in the fourth, Jupiter and Rahu in the seventh, Mars in the fifth, Uranus in the ninth, and Moon in the tenth.


    While Uranus and Jupiter are favorably placed for Governor on that evening, Saturn and Rahu are not, and Moon and Mars are sort of neutral.


    Now lets look at Vice President Gore's birth chart.


    Vice President Al Gore


    Vice President is also born under Cancer ascendant but with fiery Mars and prudent Saturn near the ascendant cusp. Moon, the ruler of the ascendant (first house) is in Sagittarius but in the the fifth house in conjunction with auspicious Jupiter.  It's interesting that both of these men's birth chart have the same ascendant, both have Jupiter-Moon conjunctions.


    The important configurations in Vice President's chart are the Rahu-Saturn, Ketu-Saturn, Mars-Saturn, and Mars-Ketu squares. These squares have been testing him pretty much all his life. So things never really come easy for him. But he has to work hard for them. But because of auspicious aspect of Sagittarius Jupiter looking after the first house, the first house Saturn and Mars, even both have a totally opposite characteristics, have provided him the strength required to successfully dodge through his life. The Mars Saturn conjunction near the first house cusp virtually assures the man that he would be dealing with problems of contradictory nature and be able to find solutions to those problems. 


    Another important planetary position in his horoscope is eleventh house Uranus (same as that in Governor's birth chart).  Uranus being the planet of USA is so appropriately placed in the eleventh house of his birth chart, and further it's positive strength is confirmed by it's placement in the ninth house of his ninefold birth chart.


    The ninth house Pisces Sun is in direct opposition with the third house Virgo Neptune.  This Neptune adds a bit of deceptiveness to Vice President's personality.  Third house Neptune is very positive for vision, ideas, and inspiration.  I'm pretty sure this Neptune keeps this Man going by providing the tremendous power to the opposite Sun to carry out or execute his plans with confidence despite the oppositions raised by those four squares between lunar nodes and Saturn and Mars as mentioned earlier.


    In Vice President's ninefold birth chart with Capricorn ascendant, Saturn and Venus are in conjunction in the ascendant, thus making that Saturn very powerful and positive for him. A powerful and auspicious Moon in the seventh house virtually assures him success in dealing with people.  This Moon also means his wife may also play very important role in his life. Despite his busy political schedule he would always find time for her.


    Jupiter in the fifth house in both of his natal and ninefold natal chart pretty much describe his children and his love for them.  It's the same Jupiter also aspects the ascendant providing the necessary strength for Saturn and Venus.


    Thus Jupiter, Moon, Uranus, Saturn, lunar nodes Rahu and Ketu, and Mars are responsible for his political achievements so far in his life and made him a very successful politician.  Also, they also support that he certainly has a potential of becoming the ultimate politician and the world leader, the president of the United states.


    On the election day (November 7) evening the planets that influence Vice President's day are: Saturn, Mars, Sun, Rahu, and Pluto.  In his progressive chart for that day Saturn is in the fifth house, Mars in the ninth house, Rahu in the sixth house, Sun in the tenth house, and Pluto in the eleventh house. In the corresponding ninefold progressive chart Saturn is in the second, Mars in the third, Sun in the fourth, Rahu in the fifth, and Pluto in the twelfth.


    While Rahu and Mars are favorably placed for him on that evening, Saturn is not, and Sun and Pluto are sort of neutral.


    From planetary standpoint it seems that neither of them has a better chance over other.  No wonder this race is so close thus far!  And it's likely to be extremely tight...probably will come down to few thousand votes difference. That very election night Mercury just changes its retrograde course and becomes direct. And that could bring surprise! 


    Only thing that may not work for Vice President Gore that night is that he has Saturn in square with lunar nodes in his birth chart, and currently Saturn is in ninefold square with lunar nodes and it's going to last through November 17.  This square alone may become responsible for not fulfilling Vice President's wish that night.




    Update  November 9, 2000


    As predicted, the race has been extremely tight, and has come down to a few thousand votes (actually only about 1700 for Florida, and in thousands for popular votes), and also the election night (November 7) turned out to be a strange and frustrating night for both parties (direct Mercury surprise!).  Although in hindsight the election result delay due Florida vote recount event is not surprising, I didn't envision that possibility when analyzing their birth charts to predict above.  In my opinion, it's retrograde Saturn who is the cause of this event.  


    The final election outcome still may not favor Vice President if it happens before November 17 due to Saturn and lunar node squares in his progressive ninefold chart as explained earlier in my November 3 prediction. However, should the election outcome remains in limbo beyond November 17, the final outcome is likely to favor Vice President. At this point it's very difficult to predict the timing of this outcome.


    As events unfold and more data become available to further confirm the planetary influence as shown in their both birth and progressive ninefold charts, appropriate updates, if required, will be forthcoming.
