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
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
month are: The USA, Europe, China, Russia, and Middle-East (Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel
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
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,
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.
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).
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
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
the exception of few days, the
world financial markets pretty much followed the predictions
during the month.
