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

Comments on Global Predictions for the last month

The important challenging planetary configurations for May include Rahu-Mars (May 11-12) opposition;   Pluto-Saturn (April 24 - May 3) and Uranus-Rahu (May 1-6) ninefold quincunxes; Pluto-Uranus (May 3 - June 6) square; and Saturn-Rahu/Ketu (May 26 - June 9) and Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (May 30 - June 11) ninefold squares.

The Rahu-Mars opposition may become responsible for strong occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction of wealth and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international political leader.

The manifestations of Pluto-Saturn and Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunxes maybe reflected in 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. Some of the east-European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil. The United States and in particular, the Republican Party is likely to run into some very difficult period. Also, USA and China encounter a crisis situation during this period.

The Pluto-Uranus square could bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and also with its domestic matters. As a result, there will be a transformation of a political strategy that is likely to become responsible for a change in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Obama administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the Obama administration could get tangled with.

2. Benghazi investigation

3. AP wiretapping

The ninefold squares of Saturn with the lunar nodes may become responsible for increased barbaric activities all around the world, terrorists creating more confusion and chaos and social turmoil in Europe and Russia. Religious activities could get stalled for no apparent reason.

The influence of ninefold squares of Neptune with the lunar nodes will be reflected in increased covert activities all around the world.

The auspicious planetary configurations for May include Neptune-Saturn (May 24 - Aug 5) trine; Pluto-Neptune (May 1-6) ninefold trine, and Uranus-Saturn (May 7-11) ninefold sextile. 

The Nepune-Saturn trine is very positive for Russia and China. In addition, during the same time, most of the technological areas (especially biotech and social media) are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are also likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.

While Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine is positive in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major terrorist cells through covert operation, the Uranus-Saturn ninefold sextile will become responsible for expansion of religious activities all around the world with new vigor and energy, conservatives findings new ways to compromise with liberals on sticky issues. 

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

  • United States of America:    

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 remain in the 9th house of his progressive chart until May 13, then in the 10th house till May 27, and in the 11th the house for the remaining 4 days of May. In addition, Sun will be in the 9th house of his progressive during the first half of May, and in the 10th house during the second half of the month.

Thus, both the Mercury and Sun will likely to be neutral for him during the first half of the month. But during the second half of May he is very much likely to succeed in almost all activities of governing and protecting the country as both the Mercury and Sun enjoys the favorable 11th house disposition in his progressive chart.

The Country:

The Pluto-Uranus square could bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and also with its domestic matters. As a result, there will be a transformation of a political strategy that is likely to become responsible for a change in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Obama administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some serious issues that the Obama administration could get tangled with.

1.  IRS investigation of targeting certain groups.

2. Benghazi investigation

3. AP wiretapping

On a positive note, Neptune-Saturn trine will be responsible for significant progress in most of the technological areas (especially biotech and social media)  via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are also likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.

        Russia:  During the first week of the month (April 4-19) Russia is likely to face the both political and social turmoil, and possible outbreak of violence; and likelihood of natural and man-made calamities can not be ruled out during the same time. However, during the last week of the month, thanks to Neptune-Saturn trine, the economical growth and progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) are likely..

        Europe:  During the first six days of the month, the continent is likely to face significant economic challenges due to the Pluto-Saturn and Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunxes. However, due to Neptune-Saturn trines the last 9 days of the month look to be positive from social and economic growth standpoint.

        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  For China, during the first week of the month economic and political turmoil is likely, and social and political instability during the same period can not be ruled out.  However, Saturn-Neptune trine for China the economical growth will be reflected in stable and rising financial markets.

        Middle East:  Due to the Pluto-Saturn and Uranus-Rahu ninefold quincunxes during the first ten days the month, the region is likely to see violence and unrest (especially in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine region). During the same period, both the natural and man-made calamities (with violence) are also likely. However, during the third week of the month violence is likely to subside before it resumes again during the last 6 days of the month.

        Religion:  Although the entire month is going to be relatively neutral for most of the religious leaders and religions all around the world, spiritual and religious activities are likely to become responsible for positive changes that will bring more harmony in the coming months.

        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 May 1-6 and 15-31.

      Earthquakes: Based on the earthquake prediction model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on May 6-7, 11-13, 18, 20-22, 26-27, 29, 31.

May 14: Region: PAGAN REGION, NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS, Geographic coordinates:18.753N, 145.261E, Magnitude: 7.0, Universal Time (UTC): 14 May 2013  00:32:25, Time near the Epicenter:14 May 2013  10:32:26

May 20: Region: OFF THE COAST OF AISEN, CHILE, Geographic coordinates:  44.927S, 80.639W, Magnitude: 6.8, Universal Time (UTC): 20 May 2013  09:49:03, Time near the Epicenter: 20 May 2013  04:49:04

May 23: Region: SOUTH OF THE FIJI ISLANDS, Geographic coordinates: 23.025S, 177.109W, Magnitude: 7.4, Universal Time (UTC): 23 May 2013  17:19:04, Time near the Epicenter: 23 May 2013  05:19:04

 There were two earthquakes of magnitude seven and higher which occurred on May 14 (UTC 00:32) (missed the prediction by 1/2 hour) and May 23 (missed the prediction by a day).  Also, there was one on May 20 of magnitude 6.8 occurred on 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

Comments on the last month's  World Financial Markets predictions

World financial markets for May will begin with a bearish tone for about six days, followed by a mixed market, then will turn bearish for a few days, then mixed for about a week, and finally end the month with a bearish 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.

May 1-6: Bearish

May 7-13: Mixed

May 14-19: Bearish

May 20-25: Mixed

May 26-31: Bearish

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