there will be three major planetary transits: On October 16, Rahu
enters sidereal Aquarius (and Ketu sidereal Leo), on
October 27, Jupiter enters sidereal Scorpio and on
October 29, Saturn enters sidereal Leo. The most challenging
for October are Pluto's direct squares with the lunar
nodes Rahu and Ketu (Sept 20 - Oct 18), Saturn-Rahu
direct quincunx (Oct 16-31), Saturn-Rahu/Ketu ninefold
(Oct 21-25) and Saturn-Jupiter direct (October 18-31) squares
. However, the counter-balancing favorable planetary
configuration that may become responsible for world political and economical
stability are Jupiter-Rahu
direct and Saturn-Neptune (Oct 24 - Nov 1) ninefold trines.
and Pluto-Ketu squares will be responsible for rise in natural and
calamities all around the world, renewed insurgency in
Iraq, and escalating fight in Israel and Palestinian region.
Saturn-Jupiter direct square will manifest in moral
challenges that religious leaders must deal with. Also,
the Jupiter-Saturn square may become responsible for
economic slowdown. Saturn-Rahu quincunx is certainly
doesn't bode well for Europe and the Middle-East region.
The Middle East will
continue to be the center stage for insurgency in Iraq
and ongoing conflict
between the militants and Israel (and its allies).
the negative influence of planetary configurations as
described above, the hope for the world
stability will come from Jupiter-Rahu direct and
Saturn-Neptune ninefold trines in the form of economic
expansion and diminishing friction between USA and
Russia and USA and China.
The countries that are likely to make headline
news will be: Iraq, Iran, Israel, Palestine, United States,
key European countries including
France and United Kingdom.

all through October Uranus quincunxes his
Natal Pluto, President Bush will be under
intense pressure from his advisors as well as American
pursue the path of withdrawal of U.S. military force
from Iraq as the post Iraq war activities are clearly
move in the direction to prove that Iraq war and
subsequent US involvement has been a huge liability.
his Neptune trines his natal Moon all through the month, the tenth house ninefold Neptune
will create an atmosphere of deception around him. And
as a result, he will continue to be totally delusive and
end up making wrong decisions on both foreign and
domestic policy issues. The post-Iraq war
crisis will continue to dodge him until he finally gives
up sometimes before the end of the year.
the last two weeks of the month Uranus opposes his
natal. As a result, president Bush will likely to be
forcefully confronted with American people. His
rating in poll will decline.
Pluto-Rahu/Ketu direct squares
(till Oct 18) will continue to be challenging to the
country as they will manifest in
political crisis, social discontent, and natural
and man-made calamities. The general mood of
Americans will continue to reflect discontentment and
For republicans, the second half of the month is certainly not
positive. Their popularity in poll will be declining as
their credibility with American people diminish. The party leaders will
continue to maintain distance
from Bush administration due to post-Iraq war
mismanagement and failed domestic policies.
For democrats, the first week of October will prove to be a
challenging week from providing a cohesive alternative
strategy for post Iraq conflict. But overall, they
are likely to sail smooth through the month. The last
week of the month is certainly positive for democrats as
they likely to gain support from American people for the
upcoming midterm election.
The second half of the month will likely to be disastrous for Putin administration due to
internal management crises. Man-made and natural calamities
will also play important part in disrupting normal life
in Russia during the second half of the month.
The month doesn't look to be positive for Europe,
especially the second half. A possibility of a terrorist
activity, especially in Italy, can not be ruled.
Religious conflict will escalate. Religious
leaders may come under severe pressure from public as
well as from international community. Also,
the entire month is bad from
the occurrence of a natural or man-made calamity standpoint.
Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:
The last two weeks of October will be politically very challenging
for China as Rahu-Saturn quincunx will manifest in
social unrest and anxiety-filled atmosphere in politics. A possibility of riots can not
be ruled out. From
economic progress standpoint the entire region is
likely to experience a short term slowdown.
Violence and suicide bombings in Iraq,
Afghanistan and in Palestine-Israel
regions will continue through all month, especially during
October 1-18 and Oct 23-27.
The Saturn-Jupiter direct square (Oct 18-31) will certainly
play an important role in creating new challenges that
must be dealt by different denominations of religious groups and
authorities. A possibility exists for a stepping down of
an higher religious authority or a shameless scandal
being exposed during the second half of the month.
Natural and Man-made Calamities: Jupiter-Saturn direct square, Rahu-Mars and Saturn-Rahu
direct quincunx, and
Pluto-Rahu/Ketu direct squares will be
responsible for both the natural and man-made disasters
during October. The likely notable dates are: Oct 1-18
and Oct 21-25.
Earthquakes: Based on earthquake
prediction model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher
are likely to occur on October 10-11, 13, 15-16, 22-30.
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.
