Comments on Global Predictions for the last
The world events for April are going to be dominated by Mars-Rahu
conjunction (April 22-25), Uranus-Saturn quincunx (April 21 –
May 27), and Mars-Saturn quincunx (April 28 – May 2). In
addition, Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx (April 5 – 21) will
play a significant role in influencing the events around the
Mars-Rahu conjunction and the ninefold and direct quincunxes
will be responsible for natural as well as man-made disasters in
Middle-East, Europe, and United States. Volatile oil prices,
unsteady political situation in Middle East (as has been
reflected in continuous violence in Afghanistan, Iraq, and
particularly, in the city of Baghdad), and sudden and unexpected
calamities (both man-made and natural) or terrorist activities
that include suicide bombings and deadly attacks are very
Other planetary configurations for April include
Saturn-Jupiter trine (April 26 – May 13), Mars-Jupiter square
(April 29 – May 2). The trine will be responsible for world
political stability, and the Mars-Jupiter square may prove to be
beneficial for religions and religious activities.
The countries that are likely to make headline news will be:
United States, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan, Israel, and
- United States of America:
President Bush and his administration:
Since Pluto continues to quincunx his natal Saturn in
April, President Bush will continue to be negatively influenced
by people surrounding him and as a result, he will be frustrated
with ongoing political crisis (US Attorney General Gonzales and
veto to Iraq withdrawal timetable as passed in both houses of
congress) and his international dealings with respect to both
Iraq and Iran. In addition, Uranus-Rahu conjunction in the
fourth house of his progressive chart will likely to force him
to make some drastic changes in his cabinet.
On a positive note, because Jupiter opposes his natal
Uranus and Rahu, he will somehow manage to survive the current
string of crisis. The new appointees will likely to be
acceptable to both democrats and republicans. However, his
public image will continue to be mired in Iraq crisis.
Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx may become
responsible for deceptive media event and deceptive politics in
April. The Uranus-Saturn quincunx towards the end of April
(April 21 – May 27) is certainly not positive for the country.
Political chaos and social unrest are likely during that period.

On a positive note, Uranus-Jupiter ninefold sextile
(April 1 -11) will be responsible for moral awareness and
expanded religious activities.
For republicans, the period of April 5 – 21 is not
positive. A direct clash between republicans and democrats will
reach its peak during the last week of the month.
Russia: In general, the second and the third
week of April are not positive for the country for domestic
politics. The second half of the month looks to be less positive
for the country from the economical progress standpoint.
Man-made and natural calamities, and rise in covert activities
are likely during the second and the third week of the month.
Europe: Except for the last week, April is
going to be favorable for the continent from economical growth
and political stability standpoint. During
the last week natural and man-made calamities are likely.
China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: Relationships between China and the United States likely to
become tense during the second and the third week of the month.
However, the entire month will be positive for China, Japan and
pacific-rim-countries from the economical growth standpoint.
Middle East: Violence and suicide bombings
in Iraq and Palestine-Israel regions may start tapering down in
April. However, the last week of April will prove to be very
deadly for the region from violence standpoint. The notable
dates for violence related activities are: April 21-30.
Religion: The first week of the month is
positive for the religious activities all around the world.
The last week of April may prove to be disastrous for the
religious leaders and activists.
Natural and Man-made Calamities: Uranus-Saturn
quincunx and Mars-Rahu conjunction will be responsible for both
the natural and man-made disasters during the last part of the
month. The likely notable dates are: April 21-30.
Earthquakes: Based on our earthquake prediction
model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher are likely to
occur on April 4-5, 11, 21-24, 28, 30.

on the last month's World Financial Markets
financial markets for April will begin with bullish tone, then turning mixed to
bearish, and mixed, then bearish again followed by mixed for a few days, and then finally turning
bearish during the last 3 days of the
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.
5-8: Mixed to Bearish
for a few days, the world financial markets seem to follow the predictions
pretty close throughout the month.
