first month of the new millennium, especially in its latter half, we are
likely to see a lot of tension around the world in the form of terrorism, sudden
outbreak of political crisis in some of the major countries, severe weather
conditions, faltering economy, and in general, a lot of anxiety about the
future. The planetary configurations that are
likely to influence most of these events through this months are:
downturn has strengthened during this month adversely affecting the financial
markets, and people's confidence in their future. The Middle-East crisis
continued as clashes between the Palestinians and Israelis did not let up.
ninefold squares between the planet Pluto and lunar nodes (Rahu and Ketu)
exerting their influence from January 19 to January 28, and the similar squares between Saturn
and lunar nodes occurring during January 26 - February 3 period will likely exert
a strong negative influence
creating an unfavorable and detrimental atmosphere during these periods
adversely affecting the world
politics, world economy, and in general, the world stability.
provide an additional fuel to secret activities in the political world. This conjunction
may become responsible for a potential political fallout as well as for an economical crisis for both Russia and
China during January 2 through January 8.
a positive note, until January 19, 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. The relation between the USA and Russia is likely to stay positive.
Also, the first week of January (Uranus-Rahu trine) is positive for the world financial markets, especially for the US markets.
first week of January is likely to prove to be very positive for Clinton
administration in dealing with both international and domestic matters.
the president elect Bush, who is scheduled to take the oath for the office of the
presidency on January 20, the ninefold squares between the lunar nodes and
Pluto from January 19 - January 28 and the ninefold squares between the
lunar nodes and Saturn from January 26 through February 3 are likely to pose him
with some serious political challenges that he must handle. It will be George W. Bush's
first real test as the president of the USA, and it would take a lot of leadership and courage
to deal with the crisis through this difficult and challenging period.
the first week Clinton visited Europe. No idea what he achieved there. One
of the Bush administration appointed nominees gave up before her hearings
began. Others didn't quite have smooth sailing. The president Bush,
it seems, still struggling in getting settled in his new job.
Russia: The first week of January (January 2-8) may prove to be crucial for Russia
from both the political and economical standpoints. Furthermore, the Pluto-Saturn
conjunction will likely to make the matter worse during the second and the third
week of January (Jan 7-19) perhaps resulting in a political shakeout and/or a
natural catastrophe. And finally, the month is likely to end with a deepening political and economical crisis creating added uncertainty in Russia's
economic and political future.
did not keep up with the news from Russia. I do remember hearing about
widening of their economical crisis.
Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries: Except
for the third week of January (January 18- 26) China is likely to continue to
have to deal with political and economic issues with almost no resolution.
economic standpoint, the entire pacific-rim region, China, Japan, and Hong Kong
are likely to experience a serious downturn mired with natural disasters.
remember if there was any natural disaster in that part of the world. But
I do know their economies are experiencing recession, particularly Japan.
month of January is a very negative for the continent. Expect some suspicious
political dealings between some countries, a severe economic downturn, and a likelihood of manmade as well as natural calamities. Euro currency
crisis is likely to resurface. But more importantly, Europeans are likely
to lose their confidence in their economical abilities, and are likely to be
strongly influenced by
the cloud of uncertain and anxiety-filled future.
with the rest of the world, European economy is in pretty bad shape.
Religion: In general, religious activities
worldwide are likely to diminish. Don't expect a great deal of
new initiatives from religious leaders. Also, the emergence of a new crisis is
unlikely. Except for the first week of
January, which is likely to be positive, we are not likely to witness any significant religious
events this month. During the second half of the month an
outbreak of religious violence in the Israel-Palestinian region is possible.
Until January 8, the Neptune-Rahu conjunction may be responsible for
man-made as well as natural calamities. In addition, the Saturn-Pluto
conjunction probably will cause both man-made accidents and natural calamities, especially
for the North America, Europe, Pacific-Rim countries and Russia, during the
second and third week of this month. Finally natural disasters are likely to
occur all around world during the last week of the month.
man-made calamities may manifest themselves 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,
air crashes and fires.
in Columbia occurred during the second week (January 13), and then the
second earthquake occurred in India during the last week (January 26). The
power (energy) crisis in California reached its peak during January, causing
some temporary but mandatory blackouts in most of the state.
Financial markets around the world are likely to be
faced with uncertainty of future direction, short term negative news, and
therefore, causing further erosion of investor confidence. Markets will
show pockets of high volatility. The absence of the traditional January effect
of bullish trends this month is a high probability.
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.
January 1: Bullish
January 2 – 3: Mixed to bullish
January 4 – 6: Mixed
January 7 – 8: Mixed to bearish
January 9 – 11: Bearish
January 12 – 19: Bearish to mixed
January 20 – 28: Bearish and volatile
January 29 - 31: Mixed
the exception of a couple of days the prediction seem to track pretty close to
the actual market outcome.
