Comments on Global Predictions for the last
undesirable world events are likely to be due to
manifestations of Pluto-Saturn ninefold opposition (May
17-23), Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx (May 22-31), and
Pluto-Mars and Neptune-Mars direct quincunxes.
However, the first half of the month is likely to enjoy
positive energy of Uranus-Jupiter, Jupiter-Mars, and
Uranus-Mars auspicious trines and Pluto-Neptune ninefold
trines. While the positive news will be reflected in
world economic expansion, continued research and technological
advances in high-tech, bio-tech, and medicine fields,
and in world political stability, the negative world
events, especially during the latter half of the month,
will include natural and man-made calamities, political tensions among world leaders,
suicide bombings and escalated activities of terrorism
in Middle East (Iraq, Israel and Palestine) and a
possible skirmish between India and Pakistan on security
The countries that are likely to make headline
news are: Iraq, Iran, Israel, Palestine, India,
Pakistan, Russia, China, and USA.

President Bush and his
On April 24 president Bush began his next major cycle,
the seventeen year cycle of Mercury. During this
cycle he will be predominantly influenced by Mercury,
Venus, Pluto, and Ketu as they fall in the constellation
of Mercury at the time of his birth.
the first three weeks of May, the transit of Mars in the eighth
house of his ninefold chart means he will continue to face
obstacles and get frustrated as he realizes his
inadequacy to effectively govern the country. Also,
during the second half of the month Mercury will transit
through the seventh house of his ninefold chart. As a
result, he will have difficulty in dealing with his
subordinates as well as political leaders of the
international community. During the last week, Jupiter
squares his natal Pluto, and therefore, during that week
he should stay low key as he is likely to make mistakes
in making policy decisions on domestic issues.
and Haditha killings in Iraq are some of the examples
where president Bush has been on defensive.
While Uranus-Mars (May 6 -10) regular trine is positive for the
country from international reputation, prestige, economy and technological progress
standpoint, the Uranus-Rahu
ninefold quincunx will certainly dominate the news
about friction between European countries and USA, national
mismanagement of domestic programs, and government's
inability to govern the nation.

For republicans, Pluto-Saturn ninefold opposition (May 17-23) will
not bode well in maintaining distance between the party
and the Bush White House. Direct confrontation between
the White House and senior party leaders is likely.
In general, for democrats, the entire month is favorable.
Especially the second week of the month may prove to be
The third week of the month is likely to be very
challenging for Russia and for the Putin administration
in particular. During May 15-19 period a possibility of
eruption of new crisis situation and/or a man-made or
natural calamity is very high. However, the favorable
influence of Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine and
Neptune-Saturn ninefold sextile will reflect in
growth and success in international politics during the
month except the third week.
While the positive influence of
Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine (May 21-28) will be reflected in
political stability and economic expansion,
Saturn-Jupiter (May 15-17) and Uranus-Rahu (May 24-31)
ninefold quincunxes are likely to become responsible for
social crisis and for increased disagreement with USA
on several economy and security related issues
Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:
Except for the third week of the month the
month looks to be positive for China
from economical and social progress standpoint. During
the third week either natural or man-made calamity or
social crisis is likely.
The economic growth for China, Japan and the
entire pacific-rim region will continue to grow at an enviable pace.
Violence and suicide bombings in Iraq and in Palestine-Israel
regions will continue to dominate the news during May

The first half of the month seems positive for religious

half some of the religious authorities will come under

Natural and Man-made Calamities: Neptune-Mars and Pluto-Mars direct quincunxes,
opposition, and Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunx will be
responsible for both the natural and man-made disasters
during May. The notable events will likely to occur
during May 15 - 31.

Earthquakes: Although it's a low
probability month for earthquakes to occur, based on our
prediction model, the possibility of occurrence(s) of an
earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher during May 2-4,
May 7-8, and on May 18 can not be ruled out.

occurred at: 20.03S 174.23W Depth 16km Wed May 3

A magnitude 7.4 earthquake IN THE KERMADEC ISLANDS
REGION has occurred at: 31.56S 179.30W Depth 149km Tue

magnitude 6.2 earthquake IN JAVA, INDONESIA has occurred
at: 8.01S 110.29E Depth 17km Fri May 26 22:54:01 2006 UTC
Earthquakes of higher than magnitude
7 were predicted for May to occur on May 2-4, May 7-8,
and May 18. Well, the one with the highest magnitude
(8.0) for the month did occur on May 3. The next one, of
magnitude 7.4, occurred on May 16, not on May 18.
Interesting observation for this month's earthquakes: The
earthquakes of magnitude 7 or higher did not really cause any human
casualties (perhaps because both occurred over water and in remote areas of the world), but the one in Indonesia, which
occurred on May 26 of magnitude 6.2, took over 5000 lives.
This seems to indicate that the destruction of wealth and loss of
lives is not always proportional to strength of the quake.
calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest,
violence, accidents, and air crashes, the natural
calamities are likely to include extreme weather
conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally
intensive droughts, hurricanes or typhoons,
thunderstorms, earthquakes and fires.
on the last month's World Financial Markets
financial markets for May will begin with a bullish tone for
about first 10 days, turn mixed till almost half way into the month followed by
mixed to bearish period of about six days, and then during the last week of the month will
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.
17-20: Mixed to Bearish
few days during the last week of the month, the world financial markets seem to follow the predictions
pretty close throughout the month.
