in planetary configurations for this month ?
is likely to be a very volatile month with a lot of happenings in the world of
politics and economy affecting the entire globe.
of the important planetary events of May is the retrograde Mars which occurs
once every two years and usually it leaves its mark with turmoil and instability
in the areas of politics and economy. The Mars becomes retrograde on May 12.
In addition, Uranus (May 30) and Neptune (May 11) join Mars by becoming
retrograde during this month.
On May 12, Mars becomes retrograde in the sidereal zodiac sign Sagittarius, via
it's retrograde motion returns to Scorpio on June 11, and stays retrograde till
July 20. Astrologically speaking, the following can be expected from the
general, when a planet turns retrograde, the positive energy offered by that
planet is expected to slowly diminish. In case of Mars, being a planet of
total independence, high ego, and less maturity usually make things worse with
those who are affected by Mars are very likely to experience a sudden setback in
their professional careers as well as in other activities. In particular,
engineers, designers, construction workers, people who work in military,
leaders, managers and like are likely to be more affected than others. You may
have to repeat things many times over before you get it right, or you may have
to deal with unfortunate and totally unexpected circumstances, and in general,
you may end up in having a very frustrating experience.
a collective level, expect a political tension building among developed nations.
Destruction of wealth due to natural calamities or man made accidents are also
very likely. World financially markets are likely to experience incredible
volatilities. Other possibilities include a sudden rise in terrorist activities,
escalation in a warlike climate between Israelis and Palestinians, and of course
increased covert activities among nations.
Palestinian suicide bombing and the subsequent Israel retaliation with
Military F-14 bombing in the third week of May has further escalated the
tension and war-like climate between the two countries. Also, the floods in
Europe, Russia (Siberia), and Balkan countries causing unprecedented loss of
wealth is the work of Retrograde Mars.
electric power crisis could be considered as a classic example of a man-made
(May 19-31) ninefold trine is likely to provide the stability around the world
and the desired climate for political,
economical, and social improvement, the destructive influence of the
Pluto-Uranus, Pluto-Saturn, Neptune-Rahu (and Ketu), and Mars-Rahu (Ketu)
ninefold squares will outweigh far more, and as a result, political and
economical uncertainties and instabilities are likely to be rampant all around
Mars-Neptune ninefold conjunction (May 1-May 21) will provide additional fuel
for already rising covert activities and terrorism all around the world.
Timothy McVeigh execution has scheduled was suddenly postponed for a month is
a typical event characteristic of retrograde Mars (or retrograde Neptune or
both). Although current plans call for June 11 as the scheduled date of
his execution, I wouldn't be surprised if it gets dragged on even further
Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (May 1-17) is not positive for Bush
administration. Expect some setbacks in both domestic and foreign policies
during that time. Also, dealings with democrats will increasingly become
difficult during that time. Then from May 22-30 President Bush is likely to
face a serious domestic crisis testing his leadership. The impact of such
crisis might be felt for a long time. For the country as a whole, expect the sudden
occurrence of both the manmade and natural calamities during the first two
weeks of the month.
May 23, 6:00 PM (CST)
predicted above during May 22-30 Bush Administration is likely to face a
serious domestic political crisis. The potential exit of republican
senator Jeffords of Vermont from the GOP party, and White House and GOP
efforts to keep him from leaving the party is a serious enough crisis that
Bush administration facing today to validate the above prediction. Unless for
some reason Senator postpones announcing his decision after may 30, it's very
probable that republicans and the Bush administration are going to lose him.
Russia: The second and the third week of May may prove to be a disaster for Russian politics.
The last week (May 26-30) the relationship with the USA may reach to a critical
level. In general, the month of May may turn out to be a very trying and
frustrating month for Russia.
Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries: During the first two weeks of the month China is likely to
have problems with her neighbors including India and Taiwan. The secretive
political maneuvering activities will be at their peak, and a possibility of a
public rioting or a rising political instability can not be ruled out during the
second and the third weeks of the month. However, from economical
standpoint, China as well as Pacific-rim countries are likely to enjoy positive
Europe: Except for the last week of
the month (May 22-30) the month looks good for Europe.
Religion: In general, this month or at
least the first three weeks of the month may
prove to be a disaster for worldwide religious activities. Religious authorities will find
a lot of obstacles and challenges from the unforeseen forces to carry out their plans.
During May 5-26 man-made as well as natural calamities and accidents are more
likely to occur all around the world. Although it is very difficult to predict the geographic locations
for man-made and natural calamities, the possibility of those occurring in
Indian subcontinent, Russia, China, the Mid-East, and North and Central
America are more likely.
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.
The floods in Europe, Russia (Siberia), and Balkan countries causing
unprecedented loss of wealth occurred in the second and the third week of May.
California electric power crisis could be considered as a classic example of a
man-made incident (accident).
economies around the world are expected to
slowly improve during this month, and the future direction of the
world financial markets is expected to be positive, the month of May is likely
have a very high percentage of volatile days with a bearish sentiment and a
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.
1-4: Mixed to bearish
5: Volatile, mixed
6-8: Volatile, mixed
9-11: Volatile, bearish to slightly mixed
12-18: Bearish and very volatile

was difficult to foresee the absence of Mars-Rahu/Ketu square when I put out
this page at the beginneing of the month. Therefore, just for May 16, 2001
the influence of Mars-Rahu/Ketu square is absent, and as a result, I expect it
to be a positively bullish day. And also, from May 16 - May 18, I expect
more of a mixed market than a bearish one.
19-22: Mixed to bullish
23-26: Mixed to bearish
Again as that for April, with the exception of a day or so, the financial market predictions for
May turned out to be pretty accurate.
