Comments for last month's (October) Predictions
Date Posted: October 31, 2004


Comments on General Global Predictions of the last month

The major astronomical as well as astrological events of October are two eclipses. While a weak solar eclipse occurs on October 13/14, a total lunar eclipse which takes place on Oct 27/28, will have a profound influence in Middle-East region manifesting in the form of a new wave of violence (Oct 27-28).  Also, to some extent the continent of Europe will be negatively influenced by the lunar eclipse during those two days in October. 

The other important planetary configurations are: Neptune-Rahu ninefold conjunction; regular Mars-Rahu, Mars-Uranus, Rahu-Jupiter quincunxes, and Uranus-Saturn and Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunxes; and Uranus-Ketu trine. The Uranus-Ketu trine will continue to provide us with its positive energy for scientific and technical breakthroughs, innovations, and discoveries, and as a result, world economies are likely to opt for positives. However, the quincunxes formed by Saturn will create an atmosphere of uncertainty and fear as violence, suicide bombings and disruptions of oil flow from Middle East will again take the center stage for global events. 

Neptune-Rahu conjunction will likely to be responsible for chaotic situation in Russia and other former Soviet block countries. Covert activities will find a new momentum in Russia and Europe. The media, especially in the United States, will be the subject of ridicule as it will likely to be perceived as less and less credible. The presidential campaign in the United States will become uglier as the divide between the voters becomes sharper.

The countries that are likely to make headline news are:  United States, Russia, Europe, Iraq, and Middle Eastern countries including Israel and Palestine.

  • United States of America:    

President Bush and his administration:  

The Pluto continues to transit over the President Bush's natal Ketu (Southern lunar node) and opposes his natal Rahu (Northern lunar node) and Uranus. As a result, his post Iraq war policies and continued violence in Iraq will put the White House on defensive.  The Neptune-Rahu ninefold conjunction is likely to make matter worse for him during October 4-17 period.  It would be prudent of him to take extra care of his health and personal safety during this period since the Neptune-Rahu ninefold conjunction occurs in the unfavorable 8 th house of this ninefold progressive chart.   During the middle part of the month he is likely to lag in polls. However, the last two weeks of the month look good for him as Jupiter will be transiting over his natal Neptune and the ninth house ninefold Saturn transiting its own natal position. Consequently towards the end of the month Bush is likely to close the gap and even regain lead in polls over his opponent.

The controversy over the missing ammunition stockpiles in Iraq. 

The Country:

The continued auspicious Uranus-Ketu trine will maintain positive environment for scientific and technological advances manifesting it with rapid technological progress through new inventions and discoveries.  However, the first half of October (Oct 1-15)  is likely to see the country facing challenges with increased possibility of terrorism at home and abroad against US interests. During the same period frictions between different religious factions are likely to increase. 

For the Republic Party the first half of the month will certainly prove to be a trying period as the party members are likely to disagree among themselves on certain key issues and policies of the Bush administration.

Democrats on the other hand will be facing challenges during the second week of October as their concern about Kerry campaign reaches a new height. For John Kerry October will seem to be a lot better than September. He is likely to regain his lead in polls over his opponent President Bush at least through the first three weeks of the month.  But (refer to separately provided prediction details) the race between Bush and Kerry is likely to turn out to be an extremely close one and may end up having a repeat recount scenario as in the last presidential election. 

            Russia:  During the first two weeks of October (Oct 1-13) and around the lunar eclipse (Oct 22-23) it's likely that Putin administration may end up having to deal with another terrorist related incident. Also, October is likely to see Russia experiencing few political and domestic challenges. Dealing with Chechnya problem is likely to get worse.

            Europe:  October 4-15, Oct 22-23 are not positive periods for European continent as terrorism possibility (in the form of violence and suicide bombings) looms and economic problems get worse.

            Religion:  The first half of the month will certainly prove to be challenging for religious leaders around the world, especially for those in the United States.. 

            Natural and Man-made Calamities:   The Uranus-Saturn, Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunxes (Oct 4 - 15) and Mars-Uranus regular quincunx (Sept 30 - Oct 3) are likely to be responsible for events related to both man-made and natural calamities.  Consequently the major part of the worldwide calamities are likely to occur during the first half of the month and around the lunar eclipse (Oct 27-28).

    Most major suicide bombings and terrorist related actions in Iraq occurred during the first half and in the last week 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

World financial markets in October are likely to begin with bullish tone in the first few days of the month, then turn mixed to bearish for the next two weeks followed by few days of mixed market and then likely to end the month with bullishness.

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 1-3: Bullish

October 4-6: Mixed

October 7-13: Bearish

October 14-17: Mixed

October 18-22: Bullish

October 23-26: Mixed

October 26-29: Bullish

October 30: Mixed

Except for a few days during the middle of the month the world financially markets tracked close to the predictions.
