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.
The 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 this
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 challenges.
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
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
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). During the same period, both
the natural and man-made calamities (with violence) are also likely. However,
during the second half of the month violence is likely to subside.
Religion: The entire month of April is likely to be
relatively stable for most of the religious leaders and religions all around
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 April 4-19 and 29-30.

Earthquakes: Based on the earthquake prediction model,
the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on
April 5, 12, 15, 27-29.

There were three earthquakes of magnitude 7 and higher that occurred on April 6,
16 and 19, and the first two of them missed the prediction dates by about 5 and 11 hours
respectively while the last one completely missed the prediction 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
on the last month's World Financial Markets
World financial markets for
April will begin with a bearish tone for about five days, followed by a
bullish bounce, then will turn mixed for a few days, then bullish for about a
week, then again mixed, 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
April 1-5: Bearish
April 6-8: Bullish
April 9-11: Mixed
April 12-20: Bullish
April 21-28: Mixed
April 29-30: Bearish
the exception of few days, the
world financial markets pretty much followed the predictions
during the month.
