December 2012 is probably the most hyped month for the twenty
first century so far. Let us explore what's in store for
us for this month from astrological perspective. The important challenging planetary
configurations for December include Saturn-Rahu (Dec
11-15), Neptune-Rahu (Dec 17-25) ninefold quincunxes;
Pluto-Jupiter (Dec 14-26) and Saturn-Jupiter (Dec 17-26) regular
quincunxes; and Uranus-Rahu/Ketu (Dec 6-18) ninefold squares.
The Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx will be responsible for unrest in
Russia and China, an
outbreak of violence and terrorist activities
in Middle-East, a good possibility of natural as well as man-made calamities. Tension between
Israelis and Palestinians will remain unabated. In the United States, for the Republic Party and republicans, it may prove to be prudent to stay on
guard during this period.
influence of the Neptune-Rahu ninefold quincunx will be
reflected in social as well as economic
turmoil in Russia and China. Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum (but because of
Neptune's secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and
other international conflicts.
Pluto-Jupiter and Saturn Jupiter quincunxes will be
responsible for new challenges that world religious leaders end
up dealing with. These might include the reconciliation
aspects among the various religions and their dogmatic agendas.
ninefold squares will likely to be responsible for potential terrorist activities
the United States besides the volatile region of the Middle-East (Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel and
Palestine). Also, the United States and particularly
the President Obama and his administration should take extra precaution in
dealing with foreign matters
The auspicious planetary configurations for December include
Pluto-Saturn (Dec 9 - March 14) sextile. This is a good period for
European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
The countries that are
more likely to be affected during
month are: China, Russia, Europe, United States,
and Middle-East (Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel
region). and Europe.
I don't see any significant planetary influence (or line up) to
justify the hype of the highly publicized and anticipated month
of December 2012 for world disaster to occur.
President Obama and his administration:
Until December 24, President Obama's operating planet
is solely the Mercury. In his progressive chart,
presently Mercury is in the third house (Libra) of his progressive chart
and it enters the fourth house On December 6. As a result, until
December 6, he will be bogged down with political
oppositions for fiscal cliff solution and international crisis. But
6 and till December 27, he should enjoy relatively
favorable period to carry out his agenda and accomplish
his tasks. During the last week of the month, he may face
a totally unanticipated domestic political crisis.
Dec 5: No progress on
fiscal cliff talk; both sides unwilling to compromise
December 28: Fiscal-cliff
negotiations not going anywhere
During the second and the third week of
December, the Uranus-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares will become responsible for
potential terrorist activities occurring in
the United States. Also, the United States and particularly
the President Obama and his administration should take extra precaution in
dealing with the middle-east crisis during the same period.
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: Despite the challenges
mentioned earlier for Russia, 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 week of the month the country may face
unforeseen political and social crisis.
Europe: The second and the third
week of the month looks to be
positive for the continent from the economy standpoint.
However, during the last week of the month, the
economic as well as political situation may deteriorate due to
outbreak of severe economic challenges.
China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:
For China, except for the first week, and despite the social and
political challenges mentioned earlier, the rest of 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 Uranus-Rahu/Ketu
ninefold squares and Saturn-Rahu ninefold quincunx will
become responsible for violence and unrest in Middle East
(especially in Egypt, Libya,
Syria, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine region)
during the second and the the third week of the month. Also, during the same period,
the natural and man-made calamities (with violence) are very likely.
Religion: While the Pluto-Saturn
sextile is positive for religious reconciliation, the Uranus-Rahu/Ketu
ninefold squares that occur during the second and the third week
of the month may prove to be unsettling for the religious
activities around the world.
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 second and the third week of the month.

In December, there
were two earthquakes of magnitude 7 or higher as listed
above. While the one, which occurred on December 7, missed
the prediction date by a day, the December 10 earthquake that
occurred in Banda Sea, did occur on the predicted date. An
earthquake of magnitude 6.8 occurred on December 21 (a predicted
date) in Vanuatu off the north coast of Australia.
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 for December will begin with a bullish tone followed by a
mixed few days, then two weeks of bearish tone, and then end the month with a
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.
December 1-9: Bullish
December 10-13: Mixed
December 14-26: Bearish
December 27-31: Mixed
the exception of few days, the
world financial markets pretty much followed the predictions
during the month.
