Comments for the last month's (February) Predictions
Date Posted: February 28, 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

In general, in February expect more stable and prosperous environment around most of the world.  For United States, however, the first week of February (Feb 2-9) is not good, and negative forces caused due to Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction (and Uranus-Ketu ninefold opposition) are likely to manifest in one or more of these forms: terrorism, political instability, scandals, a huge natural calamity, or a fearful environment.  The countries that are likely to make headline news are: USA, Pakistan, Israel and Palestine, and possibly China. February is likely to be overwhelmed with very positive news in the area of scientific and technological research, social reforms, improved relations between the United States and Russia as well as China. However religious crisis are likely to creep up, especially in the United States. 

Economies around the world showed signs of growth.  

Kidnapped Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was probably tortured and then murdered during the first week of February. 

President Bush's visit to China seemed positive for both countries.

From religion standpoint, Supreme Court of the United States of America refused to hear the case from Indiana involving State vs. Church conflict.  

Ongoing religious conflict between Israelis and Palestinians were accelerated during the first two weeks of the month.  

Religious riots between Hindus and Muslims in India resulted in loss of several hundreds of lives.

The major planetary configurations that are likely to play key roles for world events during February are: Rahu-Pluto (Feb 7-9), Neptune-Jupiter (Feb 12-22) ninefold trines, Uranus-Rahu (until Feb 15), and Neptune-Saturn (until Feb 13) regular trines, Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction (Feb 2-9). Except for the last one, these configurations are positive for the entire world. 

  • United States:  The first nine days are not good for the country. But as the month progresses expect positive surprises in capturing more terrorists, and the administration becoming more active in bringing both Israelis and Palestinians closer to reinitiate another round of the peace process. 

For Bush administration, February 2-9 period is not favorable, and therefore it needs to be extra careful in dealing with both the international (Afghanistan-Pakistan) and domestic affairs (Enron and Democrats). After February 9, it should experience relatively favorable time, and will have a reasonable degree of success in whatever the administration does. During the first week of February a sudden shift in foreign policy is likely, and changes in administration personnel cannot be ruled out. Again this month, the administration as well as the Republic Party in general is likely to face political obstacles that they must deal with. On a positive note, US involvement as a broker in providing a meaningful solution to Israel and Palestinian on their ongoing conflict will have some success. The violence between the Israelis and Palestinians, at least temporarily, is likely to taper off.

For Democratic Party, the month looks positive.

Until February 9, news about Enron collapse and its negative influence put the Bush administration on defensive.  But as the month progressed, the negative influence started fading.

Saudi Arabia's proposal for peace between Israel and Palestine at least temporarily put damper on violence between the two countries.  The incident may lead to a beginning of a long lasting peaceful solution.

            Russia:  February 1-6, in general, is not positive for Russia. But later, almost the rest of month looks favorable for Russia to handle the domestic and international affairs with positive results. Covert activities in Russia will be on rise. 

            China, Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries:  For China, February 6-23 is going to be a very challenging period.  But I think, China will come out successful in dealing with those domestic as well as international challenges. China is more likely to favor in incorporating some of the capitalistic ideas at home.  Japanese as well as pacific-rim economies are likely to do fine during the month. 

            Europe:  Until February 10, and then Feb 23 through 28, Europe is likely to experience domestic crisis leading to social unrest as well as religious instability. 

            Pakistan:  The country is likely to go through a serious crisis due to internal crisis between the moderates and the religious militants, and as a result, expect a long term chaos. It would be tough for her to maintain good relationship with the USA without giving up the old fashioned ways of dealing with the crisis. 

    Kidnapping and the murdering of the Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl certainly kept Pakistan in focus and in crisis since the Pakistani government has been in a very difficult situation in maintaining its relationship with USA without provoking the religious hardliners of Pakistan.

            Religion:  Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square (February 23-Mar 8) will become responsible for religious tensions between the orthodox zealots and their liberal counterparts, especially in the Unites States.

    From religion standpoint, Supreme Court of the United States of America refused to hear the case from Indiana involving State vs. Church conflict.  

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:  Except for the first week the month looks relatively quiet from the natural or man-made calamities standpoint.

          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.

Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

    The month of February for the world financial markets will likely to be more bullish than bearish. In general, the planetary configurations that are going to affect the financial markets are:  Uranus-Ketu ninefold opposition (Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction). This configuration may cause the markets to become very volatile and mixed.  However, the Pluto-Rahu ninefold and Uranus-Rahu regular trine will provide far more favorable atmosphere for the world financial markets to rise. Thus, the net result will be a bullish world financial market.  

    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.

    February 1:  Bearish

    February 2-5: Mixed to bullish

    February 6: Mixed to bearish

    February 7-19: Bullish

    February 20-22: Mixed

    February 23-28: Bearish

    Predictions for the month of February turned out to be less accurate.  Overall the month ended with mixed results for financial markets around the world while predictions called for more bullishness than bearishness. However, for about 60 percent of the time, the predictions were directionally correct. Overall, February prediction results were worst in last twelve months.
