Comments on last month's (January) Predictions
Date Posted: January 31, 2013

Comments on Global Predictions for the last month

The important challenging planetary configurations for January include Neptune-Rahu (Jan 27 - Feb 2) ninefold oppositions and Saturn-Mars (Jan 5-7) and Mars-Rahu/Ketu (Jan 21-23) regular squares.

The Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition will likely to be responsible for economic turmoil in Russia and China, covert activities around the world with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.

While the manifestation of Saturn-Mars square may be reflected in a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan, rising terrorism and violence around the world, especially in Syria, Egypt, and Iraq and Israel-Palestine area and possible outbreak of an undesirable happening, and occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities, the squares of Mars with the lunar nodes may become cause for the both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives.

The auspicious planetary configurations for January include Pluto-Saturn (Dec 9 - March 14) sextile, Saturn-Rahu (Jan 4-8) and Uranus-Rahu (Jan 24-31) ninefold trines, Pluto-Rahu (Jan 8-14) and Neptune-Uranus (Jan 3- Feb 16) ninefold sextiles, and the Uranus-Jupiter regular trine. 

The Pluto-Saturn sextile is certainly positive for European and Russian economy. In addition, this period is good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation. 

Saturn-Rahu and Uranus-Rahu ninefold trines will prove to be very favorable for world economical growth, and rising financial markets, especially for the United States of America. 

While the Pluto-Rahu ninefold sextile may become responsible for world economic expansion, technical innovations and discoveries and religious reconciliation, the Uranus-Neptune ninefold sextile will prove to be an extraordinary time for collective spiritual growth, technological discoveries and inventions.  Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this month. For the United States, in particular, it's going to be a remarkable and very successful period.

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are: The USA, Europe, China, Russia, and Middle-East (Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel region).


  • United States of America:    

President Obama and his administration:  

President Obama's current operating planets are Mercury and Sun. In his progressive chart,  presently Mercury is in the fifth house (Sagittarus) of his progressive chart and it enters the sixth house on January 15 and stays in the 6th house for rest of the month. As a result, until January 15, he will be faced with challenges including the serious political opposition for fiscal cliff solution. But after January 15 when both the Mercury and Sun occupy the 6th house of his progressive chart, he should and will enjoy relatively favorable period to carry out his agenda and accomplish his tasks. 

The Country:

During the first week of January, the Saturn-Mars square will become responsible for a  potential natural and (maybe) man-made calamities  Also, during the first couple of weeks, the United States and particularly the President Obama and his administration should take extra precaution in dealing with the middle-east crisis.

Pluto-Saturn (Dec 9 - March 14) sextile is certainly favorable for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation. In addition, this period may prove to be positive for the republican party as it will go through a major transformation reflecting the positive changes they should consider in their political and social agenda.

        Russia:  For Russia, except perhaps the last 4 days of the month, January looks to be a relatively stable month both politically and economically. The manifestations of the Pluto-Saturn sextile will be responsible for new political and social changes that may prove to positive for economical and political environment of the country. During the last 4 days of the month the country may face unforeseen political and social crisis.

        Europe:  January looks to be positive for the continent from the economy standpoint.  However, during the last week of the month may prove to be socially and politically challenging.

        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  For China, except for the last week, the month looks to be positive from economical, social and political stability standpoint. 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:  The Saturn-Mars square and Rahu/Ketu-Mars ninefold squares will become responsible for violence and unrest in Middle East (especially in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine region) during Jan 5-7 and Jan 21-23. Also, during the same period, both the natural and man-made calamities (with violence) are very likely.

        Religion:  The dominance of Pluto-Saturn sextile is positive for religious reconciliation and expansion in line with the world spiritual growth.

        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 very likely to occur during the first and the last week of the month.

      Earthquakes: Based on the earthquake prediction model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on January 1, 3-4, 7, 21-22, 24, 26-31.

January 5: Region: SOUTHEASTERN ALASKA, Geographic coordinates: 55.292N, 134.728W, Magnitude:  7.7 Mwp, Universal Time (UTC): 5 Jan 2013  08:58:19; Time near the Epicenter:   4 Jan 2013  23:58:19

There was one earthquake of magnitude 7.7 occurred on January 5, and it missed the predicted date by a day (actually by 9 hours).

     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 January will begin with a bullish tone and will remain bullish till January 20; then will turn mixed for a few days, and then end the month with a bullish period.

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 1-20: Bullish

January 21-23: Mixed

January 24-31: Bullish

With the exception of few days, the world financial markets pretty much  followed  the predictions during the month.
