The important challenging planetary
configurations for April include Saturn-Mars (April 29-30)
opposition, Uranus-Rahu (April 1-5) and Neptune-Jupiter (April 15-18) ninefold
oppositions; Pluto-Jupiter (April 1-3), Uranus-Saturn (April 4-19) and Rahu-Jupiter
(April 25 - May 2) quincunxes; Pluto-Saturn (April 24 - May 3) ninefold
quincunx; and Uranus-Saturn (April 11-15) ninefold square.
The Saturn-Mars opposition may become responsible for
terrorism and violence,
especially in the Middle East. Also, an outbreak of undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made
calamities are real possibilities during the same period.
manifestation of the Uranus-Saturn quincunx
may be reflected in social or political turmoil in the United States, Russia and China, as well as
in increased political tensions among them. And the influence
of the Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunx will become responsible
for outbreak of violence and terrorist activities
in Middle-East, natural as well as man-made calamities, and to
some extent, war-like climate in some part of the world. Tension between
Israelis and Palestinians will remain unabated.
Rahu-Jupiter quincunx may become responsible for difficulties in carrying out the activities
for the world religious leaders (for instance the Pope), and
more controversial occurrences are likely, and those occurrences
will test the
traditional moral values and expose the deeply rooted elements
of power and control and the religious prejudices.
The auspicious planetary configurations for April include
Pluto-Rahu (April 6-17), Neptune-Rahu (April 12-20) and
Pluto-Neptune (April 13 - May 6) ninefold trines; and
Neptune-Mars (April 25-26) sextile.
While Pluto-Rahu ninefold trine will be responsible for
economic growth around the world, progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation, the
manifestation of Neptune-Rahu ninefold trine will be reflected
in the expansion of religious activities all around
the world with new vigor and energy, conservatives having upper hand over the liberals,
and China and Russia seeing positive
developments in their social and economic fields.
The Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine
is positive in bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major
terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia
and to some extent for China. Also, on technological front, expect some positive
breakthroughs in medical, high technology and biotechnology fields.
The countries that are
more likely to be affected during
month are: The USA, China, Russia, Middle-East (Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel
region) and Europe.
President Obama and his administration:
Until May 28, 2013, President Obama's operating planets
will continue to be Mercury and Sun. In his progressive chart, the
Mercury will continue to remain
in the 7th house of his progressive chart until April 10. In addition, Sun will be in the
8th house of his
progressive during the same period. Thus, both the Mercury and
Sun will continue to be unfavorable for him until April 10 and
April 15 respectively. And therefore, the first half of April
(at least until April 10) looks to be politically very challenging for him. He will
continue to be faced with challenges that include the serious political opposition
from Republicans for the ongoing budget crisis and other issues,
and to some extent
from international (Middle East) crisis during this period.
However, the second half of April looks to be positive for him
as he successfully faces the domestic and economic
Uranus-Saturn (April 4-19) quincunx will certainly
be responsible for social or political turmoil in the United
States, and in increased political tension between USA and Russia,
and between USA and China. In addition, occurrences of natural as well as man-made
calamities are real possibilities.
a positive note, Pluto-Rahu ninefold trine will be responsible for
economic growth, progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
Russia: During the first half
of the month (April 4-19) Russia is likely to face the both
political and social turmoil, and possible outbreak of violence.
Likelihood of natural and man-made calamities can not be
ruled out. However, thanks to Pluto-Neptune and Neptune-Rahu
ninefold trines, she will survive those challenges.
In addition, the economical growth and progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) are likely during April.
Europe: During the first twenty days
of the month, the continent is poised to go through a significant
economic and political challenges due to the Uranus-Saturn quincunx.
However, due to Pluto-Neptune and Neptune-Rahu ninefold trines,
April (last three weeks of the month) looks to be positive from social and economic growth standpoint.
China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:
For China, during the first half of the month economic and
political turmoil is likely, and social and political
instability during the same period can not be ruled out.
However, due to Pluto-Neptune and Neptune-Rahu ninefold trines
for China and also for the
rest of the pacific-rim region and Japan during the same period,
the economical growth will be reflected in
stable and rising financial markets.
Middle East: Due to Uranus-Saturn
quincunx during the first half of the month, the region is likely to see violence and unrest in Middle East
(especially in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine region).

However, during the second half of the month violence is likely

is likely to be relatively stable for most of the religious
leaders and religions all around the world.

extreme weather conditions, wildfires, hurricanes, heavy rains, air
crashes as well as man made accidents
are very likely to occur during April 4-19 and 29-30.
