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


Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

The first ten days of August (and perhaps as late as August 24) are going to be dominated by Pluto-Rahu opposition (and Pluto-Ketu conjunction). causing the Mid-East conflict to continue with more bloodshed and loss of human lives. In addition, during the same time, a possibility of the outbreak of a new wave of terrorism across Europe, USA, and some part of Middle-East is high, and the conflict between India and Pakistan will likely to intensify again during the same time period.

The first ten days of August indeed were filled with news of high rate of suicide bombings and civilian killings in Israel and Palestinian region.  Around August 14-15, there were reports of mass murders and killings in Indian occupied Kashmir.

Major planetary configurations that are going to influence the world events in August are: Rahu-Pluto opposition and Ketu-Pluto  conjunction (July 23-Aug 10), Uranus-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Aug 19-24), Pluto-Saturn (July 30-Aug 5) ninefold square, and Uranus-Rahu (Aug 25-31), Saturn-Rahu (Aug 25-28) ninefold trines. While the ninefold trines are favorable for prosperity and stability around the world during the last week of the month, the influence of opposition, conjunction and square will certainly dominate the world events with more uncertainly and anxiety during the first half of the month. 

The countries that are likely to make headline news are: Israel, Palestine, Pakistan, India, United States, Russia, China, and Europe. The terrorist activities (suicide bombings, etc.) and subsequent retaliation will likely to continue through the first two weeks of the month..

The first half of August indeed was filled with news of high rate of suicide bombings and civilian killings in Israel and Palestinian region.  Around August 14-15, there were reports of mass murders and killings in Indian occupied Kashmir.

On a positive note, United States, Russia, China, and most of the pacific-rim countries (Japan and Korea in particular) are likely to enjoy more peaceful and prosperous time during the last week of the month. Technological areas are likely to experience significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Religious activities in the USA will likely to expand with a far more stability.

  • United States of America:  During the first week of August the ongoing corporate crime crisis is likely to continue with more new revelations. Bush administration will continue to be under pressure to resolve the domestic as well as international crisis. Due to continued terrorist activities and suicidal bombings in Israel and Palestinian area Bush administration is likely to come under intense international political pressure to resolve the crisis. 

    Bush administration is still haunted with Bin Laden, and his whereabouts. Also, Bush administration has trouble in coming up with a cohesive international strategy on terrorism and Iraq due to apparent disagreements between some of his key cabinet members and advisors.

    For President Bush, at least until the middle of the month, he may lose support for his policies (both foreign and domestic) even from republicans, and because of very close Pluto-Ketu conjunction in the ninefold ascendant of his birth chart, it would be a real challenge for him to handle the on going day-to-day activities without losing his reputation. Again from health standpoint, he must take extra care of his health and safety during this time. 

    Bush administration is unable to convince even his fellow republicans on its Saddam Hussein ousting plan. Support from international community and European allies is also dwindling, leaving President Bush somewhat isolated.

The first week of August is certainly not favorable for Republic Party. However, during the last two weeks of August the differences between the democrats and republicans will surprisingly diminish to a point that a lot of positive developments are likely to take place at the capital hill breaking the usual political gridlock and leading to passage of more legislative bills that the country is in a true need of..  

            Russia:  Overall the month of August is, again, likely to be very positive for Russia for its international and domestic policies. Mr. Putin and his administration will be successful in carrying out their political agenda.

            China, Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries:  Except for the second week of August China is likely to enjoy a period of prosperity.  Pacific-rim region (particularly Japan and Korea) will do well economically.. 

            Europe:  For the entire continent the first half of August doesn't look good. Economical conditions are likely to deteriorate due to unforeseen circumstances that could be caused by either or both natural and man-made calamities. In addition, an outbreak of a terrorist activity can not be ruled out.

            India and Pakistan:  For the subcontinent the first half of August (especially until Aug 10) is not favorable from peace and stability standpoint. The tension along the border and cross-border terrorism will be on rise causing the concern for a potential threat of nuclear war between these two countries. 

            Religion: During the second and third week of the month religions around the world, especially the churches in the United States, will be again on defensive in dealing with morality issues. Emergence of a new religious crisis is likely during the third week of the month. 

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:   These can occur almost anytime and anywhere in the world during the first three weeks of August. However,  the more likely period, in my opinion, will be until August 10, and then August 19 through 24. The areas that are more prone for such causes are: Europe, Israel, Palestine, India, and Pakistan along with some of the other Middle Eastern countries.

    Record wildfires in the United States and record flooding in Europe (Austria, Germany, and neighboring countries), Russia, and China, plane crashes in Russia and China, unusual temperatures almost across the entire globe were reported during August.

          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 month of August is very likely to begin with a bearish trend, however, later in the month markets are likely to turn bullish, and possibly finish the month with net gains.  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 volatile and bearish. However, Rahu-Saturn, Uranus-Rahu, and Rahu-Jupiter ninefold trines and Uranus-Saturn ninefold conjunction 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.

August 1-3:  Bearish   

August 4-5: Bearish to mixed 

August 6: Mixed 

August 7: Mixed to bullish

August 8-9: Mixed to bearish

August 10: Bearish

August 11-14: Mixed

August 15-21: Mixed to bearish

August 22-24: Mixed

August 25-28: Bullish

August 29-30: Mixed to bullish

August 31: Bullish

The predictions for the first half of August were pretty much in-line with the markets. But the fourth week predictions were off-base (less bullish or more bearish than predicted) causing all the major market indices for the month to remain almost unchanged.
