Monthly Prediction for January 2001
Date Posted: December 31, 2000
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 December predictions turn out to be
reasonably close to their targets.
The following were the expectations from planetary influence for the
December (especially after December 5) is expected to bring much needed relief
to the world of politics and economy. The planetary configurations that are
likely to influence most through this months are:
Favorable ninefold trine between Uranus and Neptune.
It will continue to provide the excellent environment for economic expansion
via scientific discoveries and inventions, and also for merger and acquisitions in the financial
However, ninefold squares between
Uranus and lunar nodes (Rahu and Ketu)
exerting their influence until December 4, and the square between Saturn and
Neptune which begins on December 18 and last through December 25 will likely to exert
strong negative influence
creating unfavorable and detrimental atmosphere during the respective period for world
politics and economy. Based on October and November results the influence of the negative forces manifesting due
to ninefold squares are likely to prove to be serious in nature.
financial Markets have been under selling pressure till the last week of
trine between the lunar nodes and Pluto occurring on December 14 and lasting
through December 20 is likely to bring the end to the current US presidential
crisis. Even before that a trine between Uranus and Jupiter occurring on
December 8 may become responsible for paving the way to the finality of the
presidential crisis ended on December 13-14.
it seems that a period of extreme uncertainty and volatile activities in world of
politics and economics (especially for the USA) that the world had experienced
most through November, and still continue experiencing it is likely to come to
end somewhere in the second week of December.
presidential crisis ended on December 13-14. Mid East crisis, although
still continuing, lost its momentum by the middle of December.
Pluto-Jupiter square is likely to cause uproar in religious world during
December 18 through 22. The
Uranus-Saturn ninefold quincunx
may pose some difficulty for Clinton administration in handling international
policies during December 21 through December 25.
have no comments here, but will appreciate your input.
square will likely
to cause a potential political as well as economical crisis for both Russia and
China during December 18 through December 25.
did not keep up with news from Russia and China. Your help is appreciated.
first week of December is very likely to create serious difficulties for Clinton
administration in dealing with both international matters and domestic
presidential election outcome crisis .The conjunction between Pluto and Sun
occurring on December 4 is likely to make that day very eventful possibly
reaching a climax. However, December 5 onward, the Clinton administration
can expect to breath a sigh of relief as the outcome of presidential crisis is
likely to become clear.
like the events pertaining to the presidential election crisis were pretty much
December 21, a possibility of serious
political crisis are likely to occur that would involve Russia and (or) China
with the United States. Setbacks in foreign policy with Russia and China during the
same period are likely.
Also, until December 4, 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 since until December
4, it's not a
positive period for the country's leader.
far as the presidential election crisis outcome is concerned, in
my opinion, it is very likely to come to end by December 14, or even as early as
December 8. However, there exists a potential (about 35 to 40 percent
possibility) that somehow the crisis may get dragged on through Christmas
back, it's interesting that the crisis ended exactly on December 14, when the
Vice President Al Gore gave his concession speech.

election prediction page where updates are provided when necessary.
Russia: Saturn-Neptune ninefold square, and Uranus-Saturn ninefold quincunx occurring in the later half of the month
(December 18 through December 25) may lead to a severe domestic crisis
situation both economically and politically. As pointed out earlier, expect
some political tension between USA and Russia during the second half of the
anything happened or not happened in Russia during December 18-25?
Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries: During
December 18 through December 25 China is likely to face crisis in resolving political and economic issues at home. But from
economic standpoint, the entire pacific-rim region, China, Japan, and Hong Kong
are likely to experience downturn.
anything happened or not happened in China or in Pacific-rim countries during
December 4, Europe can expect to look forward to some positive development
in resolving economical and political issues. Euro currency
crisis is likely to end. A crisis situation
is likely to develop during the last half of the month causing some friction
among European countries.
for Ireland, didn't hear any significant news from Europe.
Religion: December 7 through December
12 period is likely to be favorable for world religious activities. The latter half
of the month, especially December 18 through December 22 is likely to see some crisis developing in the religious
world especially in the continent of Europe and Middle East.
Until December 4, Uranus-Rahu and Uranus-Ketu
squares are likely to be responsible for
natural calamities occurring all around the world. In addition, Saturn-Neptune
square may cause both man-made accidents and natural calamities especially in
the pacific-rim area and Russia during December 18 to December 25 period. Other
than these two specified periods, the rest of the month is pretty much trouble
free. 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
for not keeping up with the news. But a series of winter snow and ice
storms in the
United States, and an earthquake in Mexico are few things I remember.
Financial markets around the world are likely to
continue to be very volatile through the first week of December. But overall
this month is likely to turn out to be more bullish than bearish, definitely not
like the bearish November.
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.
December 1 – December 4: Very volatile, sharp
swings likely, bearish
December 5 – December 11: Mostly mixed to slightly
December 12 – December 13: Bullish
December 14 – December 17: Bullish to mixed
December 18 – December 25: Mixed
December 26 – December 31: Bullish
for a couple of days, the above predictions seem to track well with reality.
US Presidential Election Prediction
Date Posted: November 3, 2000
(November 9, 18, 26, December 4, 9, and 16) are
towards the bottom of this page.
Based on the
following (unconfirmed) birth information,
Governor George W.
Birth Date: July
Birth Time: 7:26
Birth Place: New
Haven, CT (41.3 N; 72.93 W)
Vice President Al
Birth Date: March
Birth Time: 12:53
Washington D.C. (38.9 N; 77 W)
(and assuming they
have no personal objection in analyzing their charts,) the analysis is as follow:
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 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.
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
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
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
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
November 9, 2000
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.
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.
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.
November 18, 2000
predicted earlier, beyond November 17, the election outcome is likely to favor
Vice President Gore. Assuming the outcome is not likely to happen before
Monday, November 20 the following analysis deals with period beyond November 19.
very important planetary configurations that are now likely to affect the
election outcome most are:
ninefold opposition ( November 19 - November 26)
nodes Rahu and Ketu squares (November 25 - December 4)
there exist a potential for the post-election drama to continue through the
middle of January 2001 (until Saturn remains retrograde), in my opinion,
the drama is more
likely to be over before December 4. (If it does continue beyond December
4 then perhaps we are likely to see this drama continue through January of the
this update I'm only going to consider November 19 - November 26 period.
If necessary the next update will cover November 27 through December 4 period.
definition, Uranus-Saturn opposition means a direct friction between liberals and
conservatives. So the nation (USA) is likely to witness very confusing,
dramatic, and unbelievable week with a series of twists and turns.
Additionally, it's very important week for US politics, economy, and world
diplomacy. Clinton administration is likely to be burdened with far more
dealings (crisis(?)) than it can handle.
at birth chart of Mr. Gore, on November 20, the ninefold progressive Uranus is
leaving the 7th house of his ninefold progressive chart, and thus, his political
opposition is going to be weakened from that point onward. As noted
earlier, Saturn-Rahu and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares are now out of his way,
and Saturn enters the first house of his ninefold progressive chart on November
24. Thus, it seems that November 20 through November 24 period is more favorable
for him than the latter of the week.
for Governor's birth chart, as the ninefold progressive Uranus enters the 10th
house of his ninefold progressive chart on November 20, and being opposed to
Saturn in the fourth house means he is likely to experience sudden changes in
his political profession, and since both of these planets have diametrically
opposite characteristics, November 20 through November 24 period is not
favorable for Governor.
the crisis continue beyond November 24, then for Governor, November 25, being
only good day of the week for him may bring him a surprise victory. If he misses
that day, then planets are likely to favor Mr. Gore again until possibly

the nation (USA) witnessed a very confusing,

there exists a potential for the post-election drama to continue through the
third week of January 2001 (while Saturn remains retrograde), in my opinion,
this week is most crucial. This week will most likely set the tone
for the eventual outcome of this drama. Expect another suspense filled week with lots
earlier, in Vice President Gore's birth chart, Saturn-Rahu and Saturn-Ketu ninefold squares
were out of his way on November 17,
and Saturn entered the first house of his ninefold progressive chart on November
24. It seems that November 27 through December 4 period is likely to favor him
more than for Governor Bush.
for the Governor's birth chart, as predicted previous week, since Uranus entered the 10th
house of his ninefold progressive chart on November 20, he has been
experiencing sudden changes in his political surrounding and is more likely to
be faced with crucial decisions that will require him to put everything on the

original list of advisors and potential cabinet ministers). Since the tenth house Uranus is squaring with

extremely challenging, and more likely to be far less favorable for him.

period; but those details if required will be dealt in the next update.
December 4, 2000 (5:30 PM CST)
As predicted earlier on November 26, the past week and
weekend has been very dramatic and suspense-filled with a series of twists and
turns. Although it was predicted that the November 27- December 4
period favored Vice President Gore more than for Governor Bush, beyond the
December 4 the Governor Bush was expected to experience some relief from the
negative forces that kept him from becoming the President-elect.
a Tallahassee Florida court ruled against Vice President Gore who was asking the
court for ruling to hand count disputed ballots in two to three Florida
counties. Earlier Today, the US supreme court asked the Florida supreme
court to clarify why they allowed to extend original certification deadline and
ballot hand counting. These events clearly suggest that the Vice President
Gore has exhausted most of his efforts to overturn earlier ruling on Florida
presidential certification. Astrologically sometimes today, the negative
influence of the Uranus-lunar nodes squares for the Governor ended today.
And his path to become the next president of the United States now seems more
straight forward and the drama nearing its end.
this point onward, according to the Governor's progressive chart, his tenth
house (the house of profession) is trouble free as it (the tenth house) is no
longer influenced by Uranus. Also, the influence of Saturn through his current
planetary cycle, being in the third house of his ninefold progressive chart,
doesn't adversely affect the tenth house.
As for the Vice President Gore, the tenth house of his
ninefold progressive chart is also trouble free. Saturn being in the first
house, and also being the influential planet through his current planetary cycle
aspects the tenth house of his ninefold progressive chart. This means the
Vice president is less likely to give up his legal maneuvering to pursue
his quest for the White House.
At this point, the comparison of both horoscopes
suggests that both are having almost equally favorable or unfavorable times.
Perhaps planets might favor the Governor slightly more than for the Vice President
Gore. In my opinion, unless Vice President concedes, the crisis might get
dragged on through yet another very eventful, anxiety-filled, and possibly
Although very unlikely, should the election outcome for
the White House still remains in limbo by December 11 another update will be
Update: December 9, 2000, 2:30 PM (CST)
The rapid current development for Presidential election
2000 to determine the final winner of the Florida's 25 electorates made
me go back to Birth charts of both candidates to see if I could gain any further
insight to the election outcome. As predicted in my previous
update, the week of December 4 has been eventful, anxiety-filled, and
dramatic. But looking further, it seems, the same trend is likely to
continue for quite some time before we see the final outcome.
Based on the happenings of the last 32 days, it seems
that most likely this drama has been influenced most by the retrograde
Saturn. If that's true, (I hope not) the potential of continuation
of this drama well into the third or perhaps the fourth week of January (while
Saturn remains retrograde) becomes a real probability. Saturn becomes direct
on January 25, and in that case, we may very well have the house speaker as an
acting president for a short time in January (until January 25-26).
As I noted earlier, the birth charts of both candidates
are so similar and their current planetary cycles that provide the analysis
close that it is extremely difficult to predict the precise final outcome. However,
to a fair degree of certainty the favorable and unfavorable days for each of
them can be determined and compared to predict a probable outcome for a given
Based on their current progressive and ninefold
progressive charts the near term (about a week's period) outlook is as
Governor Bush: Saturn being the only
influencing planet is in the seventh house of his progressive chart, and in the
third house of his ninefold progressive chart.
Vice President Gore: Until December 29 the
influencing planets for him are: Saturn, Pluto, Sun, and Mars. Saturn is
in the fifth house of his progressive chart, and in the first house of his
ninefold chart. Pluto and Sun are sort of neutral while Mars, at least until
December 12 is not favorable.
Saturday (December 9), favors Gore, while Sunday
and Monday favor Bush.
Tuesday (December 12): neutral.
Wednesday (December 13) through Friday (December 15)
Epilogue: December 16
On Tuesday night (December 12) the US Supreme Court
decision gave the victory to the Governor Bush as country's next president. The
day as per prediction was neutral to both Gore and Bush. Looking back
(refer to November 26 update) it seems that since December 4,
as Saturn in his ninefold progressive chart moved from the fourth house to the
third, the severe opposition of Uranus and Saturn in his ninefold progressive
chart ended and the
Tallahassee Florida court ruled against Vice President Gore who was asking the
court for ruling to hand count disputed ballots in two to three Florida
then Governor was pretty much out of the wood.
