Comments for last month's (January) Predictions
Date Posted: January 31, 2003


Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

The year 2003 is likely to begin with some form of a religious crisis, especially in the United States. Also, the period from January 4 through January 13 (especially the latter part (Jan 10-13))  is not positive for the United States as it will be reflected in news that deal with either violence, terrorism, or frustrations in carrying out Bush administration's agenda against terrorism both at domestic and international level. However on the technological front, innovations, discoveries, and breakthroughs (especially in biotech, medicine and high-tech areas) will continue to dominate the news.  The planetary dispositions that will influence events in January are: Uranus-Rahu ninefold and Mars-Rahu direct opposition, Neptune-Uranus and Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx, Rahu/Ketu-Jupiter, Uranus-Jupiter ninefold and Uranus-Mars direct squares, and Neptune-Saturn, Pluto-Ketu ninefold trines and Pluto-Rahu sextile.

The countries that are likely to make headline news are: United States, Russia, some of the major European countries (Britain, Germany, Italy), Middle-East (Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and to a lesser extent Palestine and Israel).

  • United States of America:    As mentioned earlier, January 4-13 period is not positive for the United States. Religious crisis as well as outbreak of terrorism or social violence are real possibilities during this period. The relationship between Russia and USA (particularly Bush administration) will continue to stay strained. For President Bush, January is not going to be an easy month as deceptive Neptune transits opposite his natal Mercury and Pluto in the first house. Also, the ninefold Uranus enters his ninefold ascendant on January 19 while ninefold Neptune enters in the eighth house of his ninefold chart on January 23. What it means?  His ability to see the things clearly and make decisions will be influenced by apparent deception caused by the people surrounding him as well as by his own ego. In other words, it would be very difficult for him to remain an open-minded person during this month. He should be extra careful in taking any new step or direction that might influence his both domestic and international policies during January 19 through 30.

Some of the news items that supports the above predictions:

Jan 8/9: smoking gun.

Jan 9/10:  Korean crisis.

And President Bush's frustration over convincing allies and American people for War with Iraq to disarm Saddam Hussein.

            Russia:  While retrograde Saturn will continue create more challenges for Putin administration to deal with the existing problems Neptune-Saturn ninefold  (Jan 14-23) will help him meet those challenges. The relationship with USA (particularly with Bush administration) is neither likely to remain unchanged. The first week of January is very positive for the entire country.

            Europe:  The first two weeks of January are not good for Europe. Relationship with USA will become sour and economical conditions, in general, will get worse. An outbreak of a social or religious crisis is very likely. 

France, Germany are very reluctant to join USA for attack on Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq.

            China, Japan and Pacific-rim Countries:  Economically it's not going to be a positive month for China. For almost the entire month Chinese government will likely be faced with new domestic problems and (or) a new political crisis.

            Religion:  The first week (Jan 1-8) of the month will turn out to be very crucial for most of the religions around the world, especially in the United States. Religious authorities will come under severe public criticism for the issues that separate rights from wrongs. People's perception of religion and their expectations from religious authorities will likely to become more negative.

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:   While squares are likely to create disturbance (Jan 1-13) either in the form of a religious crisis or a terrorism, especially in the United States, the Neptune-Saturn and Pluto-Ketu trines will provide positive energy to counter-act the negative energy caused by squares and oppositions. In general, during Jan 1-13 and Jan 25-27 the natural and man-made calamities are more likely.

          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.

    Followings are some of the news headlines regarding natural and man-made calamities:

    Jan 5:  Suicide bombers kill 15 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

    Jan 8:  Crash of a commuter plane in Charlotte, North Carolina...21 killed

    Jan 8: Air crash in Turkey...72 killed.

    Jan 9:  Plane missing over Peru with 42 passengers.

    Jan 13: In Mid-East 18 killed in a day.

    Jan 25:  Earthquake in Mexico, and Israeli forces kill 12 in large scale attack.

    Jan 26: 4-2 spy plane crashes in South Korea.


Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

World financial markets are likely to come under strong selling pressure during January. In general, the planetary configurations that are going to affect the financial markets are: Uranus-Rahu ninefold and Mars-Rahu direct opposition, Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunx, Jupiter-Rahu/Ketu, and Uranus-Jupiter ninefold and Uranus-Mars direct squares, Neptune-Saturn and Pluto-Ketu ninefold trines. 

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.

January 1-3: Mixed to bearish

January 4-9: Bearish

January 10-13: Very volatile

January 14-20: Mixed

January 21-24: Bullish

January 25-27: Volatile and bearish

January 28-31: Bearish

Except for the few days (in second week) the financial markets in January pretty much followed the predictions.
