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


Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

As predicted last month, during September, there were clear signs of declining violence and natural or man-made accidents, and again as predicted, the violence irrupted only during the third week of September (September 18 and 19) in the form of bus bombings in Israel and civilian killings in Kashmir. Also, President Bush indeed announced his plans to dethrone Saddam Hussein in Iraq during the last week (Sept 24 onwards) of the month and took his case to Americans for winning their support. 

With retrograde Mercury delaying plans or activities till October 7, and then beginning October 11, both retrograde Saturn and retrograde Venus poised to turn our lives (relationships, dealings, and daily chores) into messy and frustrating ones mainly due to either by clouds of suspicion, misunderstandings or by happenings that are beyond our control, the month of October for most of us, it seems, going to be a real trying one. And that frustration will reflect in world politics. Delays which are longer than normal and poor payoffs for painstaking efforts by world leaders to make our world a better place are likely to become norms during October.  However, on a positive note, Pluto-Jupiter trine will be responsible for an emergence of a new philosophy, and people will welcome this philosophy as a refreshing change in their lives.  Religious leaders who are ready to embrace this liberal yet morality based philosophy are likely to see their popularity on rise.

Major planetary configurations that are going to influence news around the world in October are: Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx, Uranus-Pluto ninefold (Sept 24-Oct 11) and Saturn-Mars regular squares, Pluto-Neptune (Sept 10-Oct 6), Uranus-Rahu (Sept 3-Oct 5) ninefold and Pluto-Jupiter regular trines, and Pluto-Saturn (Oct 7-26) ninefold sextile, and retrograde Mercury, Venus, and Saturn. While the favorable ninefold trines and sextiles will be responsible for world stability and prosperity, the retrograde Saturn, Venus, and Mercury along with the squares and quincunx will likely to unfavorably tilt the overall balance more towards pessimism and frustration.

The countries that are likely to dominate media will be: United States, Russia, Iraq, Israel, Palestine, and some European and Middle-East countries. Religions around the world are likely to experience transformation that are likely to be more inline with people's needs and creativity. However, a possibility exists that major world religions may find themselves on a collision course, but in my opinion, humanity will prevail in subverting the likely disaster.

Major news: Bali Hotel Bombing, Russian Chechnian rebel standoff and Russian troops storming the theater to rescue hostages, Sadam Hussein's continued political game: release of prisoners, allowing the UN inspectors, Suicide bombings in Israel. 

  • United States of America:   Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx is likely to create an environment of deception at workplaces, social gatherings, and political rallies.  It would be difficult to separate reality from deception. The relationship between Russia and USA (particularly Bush administration) is likely to become more strained, and as a result, President Bush will find himself frustrated in carrying out his crusade of dethroning of Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq. President Bush and his administration must be careful in dealing with his allies, and based on his progressive chart, he is likely to face an uphill battle both at home (Republicans) and abroad (allies) in convincing them the need for overthrowing the Saddam Hussein's regime, and subsequently may be forced to abandon his idea of taking Saddam Hussein's regime out sometimes in October or November. If not, he is destined to face a very challenging and frustrating fall and possibly winter with a failed mission. From health standpoint, it would be prudent of him to take extra care of his health and safety during this month. 

President Bush is still dealing with allies for the support in carrying out his agenda of dethroning Sadam Hussein with very little success.

During the second week of October (Oct 12-15) the Republican party is likely to suffer a political setback. In general, both democrats and republicans are likely to play safe with least amount of friction between them at least until the fourth week of the month. Extreme weather conditions and a possibility of a severe natural or man-made disaster is likely during the first eleven days of the month.

Hurricane Lili (Oct 3), Washington area sniper (7 out of 9 people were killed during the first eleven days of the month).

            Russia:  Despite a likelihood of strenuous relationship with Bush administration Putin administration should have relatively easy time during Oct 7-26.  The economic progress will continue unabated. However, a possibility of a political or social crisis during Oct 12-15 period can not be ruled out.     

    Moscow theater hostages taken by Chechnian rebels and storming the theater by Russian troops to rescue the hostages occurred during the third week of the month and not during Oct 12-15 period.  

            Europe:  October is not going to be so bad for Europe. Besides a likelihood of either natural or man-made calamity during the second week of the month, the continent should experience a smooth sailing though this month. 

            India and Pakistan:  For the subcontinent the period of October 12-15 is not favorable. During those days the tension along the border and cross-border terrorism is likely to rise. 

            Religion: In general, October may prove to be a crucial month for world religions.  While a lot of progress is expected in expanding religious activities all around the world, a possibility of religious turmoil exists, especially in the United States, during October 18-22 period. In addition, there is a possibility that major world religions may find themselves on a collision course, but in my opinion, it's likely to be a short lived event. 

    There was some news about disagreement between the Vatican and US religious leaders.

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:   Except for the first eleven days, October, will likely to be a relatively quiet month. More accident prone period, in my opinion, will be October 1-11, and perhaps October 12-15 affecting mostly United States, Israel, and Palestine. 

     Bali Hotel Bombing (Oct 9-10) killing mainly foreigners with anti-american bias, Suicide bombings in Israel (3 incidences during the first two weeks of October) killing nearly 20 people, hurricane Lili (Oct 3), Washington area sniper (7 out of 9 people were killed during the first eleven days 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, 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, October is going to be somewhere between mixed to a bullish month.  In general, the planetary configurations that are going to affect the financial markets are: Neptune-Uranus and Neptune-Ketu ninefold quincunx, Pluto-Uranus ninefold and Saturn-Mars regular square, Pluto-Neptune and Uranus-Rahu ninefold and Pluto-Jupiter regular trines, and Pluto-Saturn  ninefold sextile. 

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.

October 1-2:  Bullish to mixed

October 3-5: Mixed to bearish

October 6-9: Bearish

October 10-11: Mixed to bearish

October 12-15: Bearish (possibly sharply bearish)

October 16-22: Bearish to mixed

October 23-27: Mixed to bullish

October 28-29: Mixed 

October 30-31: Bullish

Except for the bearish prediction of Oct 12-15, the predictions were pretty much in-line with actual market performance. In hindsight, the prediction of "possibly sharply bearish" should be "highly volatile".
