Comments for last month's (Apr 06) Predictions

Comments on Global Predictions for the last month

While April is very likely to be influenced by deadly Pluto-Mars direct opposition (April 6-10) and miserable Pluto-Rahu ninefold quincunx (April 11-25) manifesting into events of natural and man-made calamities around the world and political tensions among world leaders, auspicious Saturn-Rahu trine will continue to maintain world stability and economic prosperity at least during the first half of the month. 

The countries that are likely to make headline news are:  Iraq, Iran, Israel, Palestine, Europe, Russia and USA.

  • United States of America:    

President Bush and his administration:  

Around April 24 president Bush will begin his next major cycle, the seventeen year cycle of Mercury.  During those years he will be particularly influenced by Mercury, Venus, Pluto, and Ketu as they fall in the constellation of Mercury at the time of his birth.  In other words, it's going to be a brand new cycle for him that's going to be filled with experiences and changes significantly affecting the way he deals with his staff and party leaders. Although the changes are not going to occur overnight but over a period of six months or so one should notice the difference. 

For April, the Saturn's transit in the twelfth house of his ninefold chart will likely to be politically beneficial for him. However, the transit of Mars in the eighth house of his ninefold chart means he will likely to face unwanted obstacles and frustration in carrying out his agenda. Also, his reputation is likely to be tarnished due to some unique and mysterious events.  During this month he must avoid direct confrontation with his own administration in dealing with both domestic and international politics.

 

April 8:  Leak-Hating President As Leaker-In-Chief?  The latest flap comes as things seemed as if they could hardly get worse for the president and his Republican allies: Iraq, continued fallout over the botched Katrina response, the Dubai ports debacle, shortcomings in the new Medicare prescription drug program, the resignation of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and the collapse of a proposed immigration overhaul.

April 23: Face of Troubled Bush White House....President Bush's administration. McClellan had worked for Bush while the president was governor of Texas. ... press secretary Scott McClellan's resignation, political consultant Karl Rove was relieved Wednesday of his policy role ...

The Country:

While Saturn-Rahu (April 1-14) regular trine is positive for the country from economy and technological progress standpoint, the Pluto-Mars regular and Uranus-Rahu ninefold opposition, Neptune-Uranus, and Pluto-Rahu ninefold quincunxes will certainly dominate the news about political crisis involving national security, mismanagement of domestic programs, media deception, covert activities, or a severe natural disaster. 

For republicans, Saturn-Rahu trine is positive till the middle of the month. Neptune-Uranus quincunx will reflect in increased friction between democrats and republicans during the first half of the month. Overall the month may turn out to be relatively positive for republicans.

For democrats, the first half of the month is not positive. The open differences between senior party leaders may put the party on defensive.

        RussiaTension between USA and Russia will continue through the first two weeks of the month. However, the favorable influence of Saturn-Rahu trine will reflect in economic growth and political stability. .

        Europe:  The positive influence of Saturn-Rahu trine will continue to be reflected in economic expansion and general well being of public all over Europe. However, Uranus-Neptune and Pluto-Rahu ninefold quincunxes may become responsible for increased disagreement with USA on several economy and security related issues.

        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  The entire month looks to be positive for China from economical and social progress standpoint. But the friction between USA and China during the first half of the month may create unwanted problems for the region.  The economic growth for China, Japan and the entire pacific-rim region will continue to remain at the enviable pace.

        Middle East:  Violence and suicide bombings will continue to dominate during April 6-25 period, especially in Iraq and in Palestine-Israel regions.

April 6: Car bomb in Iraq kills 13

April 7: Suicide bombers kill 50 at Baghdad mosque

April 8: Car bomb kills six Shi'ite pilgrims in Iraq

April 12: Over 20 dead in Iraq mosque car bombing

April 15: 7 Killed, 24 Wounded in Baghdad Car Blast

April 24: Wave of bombs hits Baghdad as Saddam on trial:  A wave of car bombs hit Baghdad on Monday, killing at least eight people and wounding nearly 80 as the trial of Saddam Hussein continues.

April 24: Toll from Egypt blasts rises to 30 dead

        Religion:  No significant development is expected in religious world during this month.

        Natural and Man-made Calamities:  Pluto-Mars direct and Uranus-Rahu ninefold opposition, Pluto-Rahu and Neptune-Uranus ninefold quincunxes, and Pluto-Jupiter conjunction will be responsible for both the natural and man-made disasters during April. The notable events will likely to occur during April 6-25.

April 6: Car bomb in Iraq kills 13

April 24: Toll from Egypt blasts rises to 30 dead

 

      Earthquakes:  Based on our earthquake prediction model, the probability of occurrence(s) of an earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher is  likely to occur during April 7-9.

 April 7:  A magnitude 6.3 earthquake in FIJI has occurred at: 16.63S 177.00E  Depth 7km  on  Friday Apr 7 08:30:43 2006  UTC

April 7: A magnitude 5.5 earthquake in THE KURIL ISLANDS has occurred at:  45.03N 150.15E Depth 79km Fri Apr 7 15:00:03 2006 UTC

April 9:  A magnitude 5.6 earthquake in OFFSHORE TARAPACA, CHILE has occurred at:  20.39S 70.20W Depth 34km Sun Apr 9 20:50:46 2006 UTC

April 20:  A magnitude 7.7 earthquake IN KORYAKIA, RUSSIA has occurred at:  61.09N 167.10E Depth 43km Thu Apr 20 23:25:05 2006 UTC

Note that there were about 31 earthquakes of more than 4 magnitudes during April. There was only one that was above 7.0 and it occurred on April 20 as listed above.  From that perspective, the model certainly  needs improvement.  However, the next best (highest magnitude) was of 6.3 magnitude that occurred on April 7.  While it was not included in above prediction, April 20, according to the model, was the fourth best date for possibility of occurring earthquake of 7 or higher magnitude. 

     While man-made 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.

Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

World financial markets for April will begin with a mixed tone for a first few days, then turn bearish till almost two third way into the month, and during the final days of the month will remain mixed to bullish.

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.

April 1-5: Mixed

April 6-23: Bearish

April 24-30: Mixed to Bullish

Except few days during the last week of the month, the world financial markets seem to follow the predictions pretty close throughout the month.
