Comments for the last month's (July) Predictions
Date Posted: July 31, 2002

    Your critique/comments about the monthly predictions are most welcome. You could provide them either via e-mail (the feedback link in the top right corner or comment link at the end of this page) or via message board.  Instead of me reviewing this page every month I would appreciate if someone would like to volunteer to review this page and provide unbiased comments either on a regular basis or once in a while.  Thank you. 


Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

July is going to be dominated by Pluto-Rahu opposition (and Pluto-Ketu conjunction). Such opposition occurs once in about 17-18 years. What it means? Well, for one thing, since this opposition involves the war-sign Scorpio (sidereal), the Mid-East conflict is very likely to get uglier, especially during July 23-Aug 10 period. In addition, during the same period, a new wave of terrorism will likely to sweep Europe, USA, and some part of Asia. To top the things conflict between India and Pakistan will again intensify during the same time period.

Almost every day since July 23, there has been news from Israel and Palestine about suicide bombings or killings or retaliation where civilians were killed in Israel and Palestine.  In the USA the major news of corporate crime took the front seat. Although it's very difficult to predict news of corporate crime but it surely falls under the realm of Pluto-Rahu opposition occurring in the earth sign Taurus (business) and Pluto-Ketu conjunction in the mysterious and dubious sign Scorpio (criminal). We may see more negative surprises in the business and corporation world before August 10. India - Pakistan conflict, although hasn't accelerated yet, the possibility still exists till August 10.

Major planetary configurations that are likely to influence the world events during July are: Rahu-Pluto opposition and Ketu-Pluto  conjunction (July 23-Aug 10), Pluto-Saturn (July 30-Aug 5) ninefold square, and Neptune-Saturn (July 14-20), Pluto-Saturn (July 6-11), and Saturn-Ketu (July 12-16) ninefold trines. While all the three ninefold trines are favorable for world prosperity and stability around the world the influence of opposition, conjunction and square will overshadow the trines. In addition, On July 4, Mercury transit occurs in the sidereal zodiac sign Gemini, and both the Mars and Jupiter transits occur in Cancer. Also, Saturn enters the sidereal Gemini on July 21.

The countries that are likely to make headline news are: Israel, Palestine, Pakistan, India, United States and some part of Europe. The terrorist activities (suicide bombings, etc.) and subsequent retaliation will likely to accelerate towards the last week of the month and continue through the next month.

Almost every day since July 23, there has been news from Israel and Palestine about suicide bombings or killings or retaliation where civilians were killed in Israel and Palestine.

On a positive note, Russia, China, and some of the pacific-rim countries (Japan and Korea in particular) are likely to enjoy more peaceful and prosperous time with increased and positive influence in world politics. Again this month, technological areas are likely to experience significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Religious activities in the USA will likely to find the much needed stability.

Have no comments.

  • United States of America:  For the latter half of the month the entire country is going to be intensely focusing on the on-going suicidal bombings around the world due to a fresh wave of terrorism, and the raging conflict between the Israel and Palestinians.  Especially during July 23 - August 10 time period Bush administration will be under intense international as well as domestic political pressure to resolve the crisis. 

    President Bush has been under intense pressure in dealing with corporate criminals since his administration has been perceived to be a biased to businesses and corporations. Vice President Mr. Cheney's investigation into his business dealings in the past makes it difficult for the Bush administration to handle the issue of corporate crime with a fair degree of credibility.

    For President Bush, he may experience that the support for his policies (both foreign and domestic) is on decline, and because of very close Pluto-Ketu conjunction in the ninefold ascendant of his birth chart, he has no choice but to directly face the challenges and find answers soon. I don't know how he's going to perform, but it would prove to be very prudent that he takes care of his health and safety during that time. 

Republic Party will find itself in a very precarious situation in holding on to its agenda and the same time support the President. As a result, a drift between the conservatives and the moderate republicans will be growing. For the Democratic Party, except for the third week of the month, the month doesn't look so bad.

            Russia:  Overall the entire month is likely to be very positive for Russia for its international diplomacy. During the same period Russia's likely to make a lot of progress with its domestic economy. Mr. Putin and his administration will be handsomely rewarded for their successful efforts both domestically and internationally.

            China, Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries:  China may experience social or political turmoil during the last two weeks of the month. But from economy standpoint, China and most of the Pacific-rim region (particularly Japan and Korea) is likely to enjoy positive period. 

            Europe:  For the entire continent July doesn't look good. Economical conditions may suffer due to unavoidable circumstances caused by either or both natural and man-made calamities. In addition, terrorist activities will be on rise causing a fearful and uncertain atmosphere.

            India and Pakistan:  For the subcontinent the month of July (especially July 23-Aug 10) is not favorable from peace and stability standpoint. The tension along the border and cross-border terrorism will be on rise again causing the concern of a potential threat of nuclear war between these two countries. For Pakistani President the time is not very favorable as he would be surrounded by more adversaries than friends. 

            Religion: During the third week of the month churches in the united states will be again on defensive in dealing with morality issues. In general, however, religious leaders in other part of the world will have easy time in carrying out their activities and agenda.

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:   Although such calamities can occur during the entire month anywhere in the world, the more likely period, in my opinion, will be the one from July 23 - August 10. The areas that are more prone for such causes are: the United States, Europe, Israel, Palestine, India, and Pakistan along with some of the other Middle Eastern countries.

    There have been several major weather related catastrophes all around the world (for more than monthly average) such as, wildfires in the western part of the United States, train accidents in Europe and USA,  flooding in Texas, air crashes in Russia and China, etc. all occurred during July. 

          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, and equally intensive droughts; and thunderstorms, earthquakes, air crashes and fires.

Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

For the world financial markets, the overall picture for the month of July looks mixed. The month is likely to begin with positive mood but as it wears on and gets closer to its end the markets are likely to enter in bearish territory. In general, the planetary configurations that are going to affect the financial markets are: Pluto-Rahu ninefold regular and ninefold oppositions, and Pluto-Saturn ninefold square will influence markets to become very volatile and bearish. However, Neptune-Saturn, Pluto-Saturn ninefold trines and Ketu-Jupiter ninefold opposition will provide favorable atmosphere for the world financial markets to rise.   

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.

July 1:  Mixed

July 2-3: Mixed to bullish

July 4-7: Mixed

July 8-10: Mixed to bearish

July 11-12: Mixed

July 13-19: Bullish

July 20: Mixed

July 21-22: Mixed to bearish

July 23-31: Bearish

For July the financial predictions in general were poor. All the major market indices though recovered considerably, ended the month with losses (ranging from 3 to 6 %.)  The predictions for the first half of the month were pretty much in-line with the markets. But the last two weeks were off-base. The influence of Ketu-Pluto conjunction turned out to be far more positive than anticipated.
