About Uranus's entry
in sidereal Aries ........
of the important planetary events of 2016 is the transit of the modern planet
Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. Uranus entered sidereal Aries on June 24, and it stayed there till September 4
before it returned to Pisces due to its retrograde motion. It will
station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will return to Aries, and
will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so.
Although it's going to be in
a short while (June 24 - Sept 4) before it returns to Aries next year, Uranus being the planet
of change will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries
being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for
independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in
world political landscape is going to be
tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries. The people who are most
affected by this transit are military personnel, business
leaders and political leaders. In scientific and
technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will
find their way into innovations and discoveries. The
scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace. A
new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on
world order will certainly
transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to.
individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready
for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is
a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be
sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage,
profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.
I don’t put a lot of stalk in the chart of a country since before the
inception time of the chart the land existed. Instead, I look at the
characteristics of the zodiac signs and planets associated with that land
and the planetary transits.
my opinion, UK is very closely tied with the sign Aries, a cardinal and
fiery sign ruled my mighty Mars, and where Sun gets exalted. This is
clearly reflected in the way Briton dominated the world in last few
Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and Aries
(ruled by Mars)
being extremely independent sign…this combination may produce very
positive for UK. (read above about the Uranus's transit in Aries). But
Uranus being whimsical and
as it constantly demands change (therefore
has been interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 -
September 4 in UK. Because Uranus has returned to sidereal Pisces after
Sept 4 and will stay in Pisces till April 6, 2017 a possibility of reversal of Brexit
(which may very well be short lived) exists! Let
us see how Briton evolves during next few months. It will be a glimpse
or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.
President Obama and his challenges......
President Obama's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be
Sun. In addition, Moon will remain as an operating
planet for him till November 11.
During October, Mercury remains in sidereal Leo (the first house of his progressive
chart) till October 3, then it enters Virgo (the second house of his
progressive chart) and remains in Virgo till the October 21,
then enters Libra (the third house of his progressive chart),
and remains there till the end of the month.
Until October 3, he will continue to have difficult time in staying focused and
avoiding the wrong company of people. After October 3, the favorable second house Mercury will
provide him with the
opportunity to be successful in effectively governing the
country. However, after October 21, his
adversaries may have upper hand, and as a result, he will have
frustrating period dealing with them.
Sun is presently transiting through the
unfavorable second house of his progressive chart till October
17. And then
for the remaining
part of the month, through a favorable house (the
second house) of his progressive chart. As a result, till
October 17, from Sun's transit standpoint, he
is likely to face with disappointment, delays, deceit, mental stress
and defeat in governing the country, but later he will succeed
in dealing with his both domestic and international political
far as Moon is concerned, because it's very favorably (exalted
Moon) placed in his natal chart, despite the negative influence
of Mercury and Sun, he will somehow successfully manage his
presidency and the popularity.
summing the influence of all the operating planets as explained above,
overall, the third week of October (Oct 17-21) looks to be
positive for him, and other days are likely to be difficult and

on the last month's World Financial Markets
financial markets for October begins with a slightly bearish tone for a few
days, then it turns
mixed for few more days followed by a bearish period then mixed for few days or so, then
bullish and bearish, mixed and end the month with a distinct 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.
October 4-6: Mixed
October 7: Bearish
the exception of few days, the
world financial markets pretty much followed the predictions
during the month.
