The important challenging planetary configurations for
January include ninefold squares of Uranus-Jupiter (Jan
8-23) and Uranus-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 23-30); and Saturn-Jupiter (Jan
30 - Feb 4) ninefold quincunx.
The auspicious planetary configurations for January are:
Neptune-Saturn (Dec 22 - Feb 2) trine, Pluto-Rahu (Jan 24-30)
ninefold trine, and Pluto-Jupiter (Dec 18 - Jan 23) ninefold
The Uranus-Rahu and Uranus-Ketu ninefold squares may become
responsible for terrorist activities in the United States
besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel and Palestine) and North African
region. Also, these squares may challenge President Obama and
his administration for dealing with foreign matters that might
require taking extra precautions.
The manifestation of the Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square may
be reflected in challenges that world religious leaders are
likely to face, particularly those challenges will be more
pronounced in the United States. The religious leaders,
who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on
new and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible
to transform our religious world to a new level. In addition,
the Saturn-Jupiter ninefold quincunx may become responsible for
added challenges in carrying out their existing agenda in light
of today's changing spiritual needs.
The manifestation of Neptune-Saturn trine will be reflected
in positive period for Russia and China. Also, most of the
technological areas are likely to make significant progress via
inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities
are likely to impart positive energy and create a very healthy
atmosphere around us.
The Pluto-Rahu ninefold trine will be responsible for a good
period for economy. This period is also good for progress in
technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious
Pluto-Jupiter ninefold sextile is likely to manifest itself
in changes in religious and academic and to some extent social
fields. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit
confusing and perhaps chaotic, but the majority of us are going
to embrace this new wave of change and are very likely to enjoy
The countries that are more likely to be affected during this
month will be: United States of America, Russia, China,
European countries and Middle-East (Libya, Syria, Saudi-Arabia,
Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel region).
President Obama and his administration:
President Obama's operating planet Neptune
has been opposing his natal Rahu since mid-July, 2011 and will
continue opposing his natal Rahu till January 20, 2012. With Neptune in the seventh house of his progressive chart, it
has been a challenging and deceptive environment that he has
been dealing with, making it difficult for him to deal with the
current pressing issues: the economy, international dealings,
and deficit. The Neptune in the fourth house of his
ninefold progressive chart will force him to deal with the
domestic issues, such as homeland security and immigration.
Furthermore, the ninefold Saturn will conjunct the ninefold
Neptune in the fourth house making it extremely challenging for
him to deal with domestic political issues during the second
half of January when Saturn becomes an operating planet for him.
In addition, after January 17, Mars becomes an operating planet
for him, and Mars being in the first house his progressive chart
and becoming retrograde on January 24, his patience will be
tested to its limit as he will be forced to deal with political
challenges that will put him not only on defensive but those
challenges will annoy and irritate him a great deal. However, with Jupiter in Aries, the 9th house (11th from the
eleventh) of his progressive chart and in the 11th house of his
ninefold progressive chart, and Pluto's trine with his natal
Pluto, he will still be able to inch towards success in leading
the country to progress.
The ninefold squares of the lunar nodes with
Uranus are not positive for the country during the last week of
the month, and their manifestations are likely to be reflected
in natural accidents and man-made calamities during that week.
The Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square may become responsible for
challenges that religious leaders must face in promoting their
agenda. On a positive note, the influence of Neptune-Saturn
trine will certainly be reflected in positive period for most of
the technological areas, as those areas are likely to make
significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Also, the
month of January may turn out to be a positive month for
republican leaders and the republic party.
Russia: The manifestation of
Neptune-Saturn trine will be reflected in positive period for
Russia during the entire month.
Europe: Except for the last week of the
month (Jan 23-30), the month looks to be positive for Europe
from the economical growth and political stability standpoint.
During the second and the third week of the month, religious
leaders may come under pressure to defend their activities as
people are likely to question their agenda. The positive
influence of Neptune-Saturn trine will be reflected in sense of
security, well being and general happiness.
China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: For
China, the manifestation of Neptune-Saturn trine will be
reflected in political stability and economic expansion.
Except for the third week of the month, the entire month looks
to be favorable for the region from economical growth
standpoint. During the third week of the month, occurrences of
natural calamities or man-made accidents are likely.
Middle East: Except for the last week of the
month, the month of January may prove to be relatively less
violent and more peaceful than other times for the region. The
auspicious Neptune-Saturn trine may prove to be boon for the
region from the moral transformation and economical growth
standpoint. The religious leaders will certainly come pressure
and unless they modify their norms to meet the current social
and moral needs they will become less relevant. The Uranus-Rahu/Ketu
ninefold squares may
become responsible for violence and unrest in Middle East during
the last week of the month.
Religion: The challenging influence of the
Uranus-Jupiter ninefold square will test the will of the
religious leaders around the world. The present way of
looking at the religion to find the meaning for life will
certainly go through a period of transformation.
Natural and Man-made Calamities: The
natural calamities like extreme weather conditions, wildfires,
hurricanes, heavy rains, air crashes as well as man made
accidents are more likely to occur during January 23-30.
Earthquakes: Based on the new earthquake prediction model,
the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely
to occur on January 3, 6-7, 9-10, 12-13, 15, 19, 21-23,
28 and 31.
Jan 10: Region:
OFF W COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA, Geographic coordinates:
Magnitude: 7.3 Mw,
Universal Time (UTC): 10
Jan 2012 18:37:01,
Time near the Epicenter: 11
Jan 2012 00:37:01
There was only one
earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher that occurred during
January as listed above. It made the predicted date.
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
on the last month's World Financial Markets
financial markets in January will begin with a bullish tone followed by a mixed
period, then bearish, mixed, bullish and finally end the month with a mixed tone.
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.
January 1-7: Bullish
January 8-20: Mixed
January 21-23: Bearish
January 24-25: Mixed
January 26-29: Bullish
January 30-31: Mixed
the exception of few days, the
world financial markets pretty much followed the predictions
during the month.
