Monthly Prediction for February 2001
Date Posted: January 31, 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 predictions did turn out reasonably close to their targets.  The following were the expectations from planetary influence for the last month.


    In the 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:

    Economic 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.

    The 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.

    Rahu-Neptune conjunction will 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.

    On 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.

            United States: The first week of January is likely to prove to be very positive for  Clinton administration in dealing with both international and domestic matters. 

    For 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.

    During 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. 

    I did not keep up with the news from Russia.  I do remember hearing about widening of their economical crisis.

            China, 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.  From economic standpoint, the entire pacific-rim region, China, Japan, and Hong Kong are likely to experience a serious downturn mired with natural disasters.   

    Don't remember if there was any natural disaster in that part of the world.  But I do know their economies are experiencing recession, particularly Japan.

            Europe:  The 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.

    As 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.

            Natural and Man-made Calamities: 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.

          While 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.

    Earthquake 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.

    2) World Financial Markets

    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   

    With the exception of a couple of days the prediction seem to track pretty close to the actual market outcome.
