Important planetary configurations for November that are going to impact the world events are: Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition, Pluto-Uranus square, Pluto-Rahu quincunx, and of course a total lunar eclipse. Pluto-Uranus square (Nov 9 – Dec 7) will certainly be responsible for dominating news from and about Iraq, guerrilla warfare between the US arm forces and the Iraqi opposition forces, and continued violence in Israel-Palestinian area. It also means involvement of USA will significantly deepen and will simultaneously put additional pressure on Bush administration to handle the conflicts. Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition (Nov 4 -14) means deceptive atmosphere surrounding the world events and increased covert activities. To top it all the total lunar eclipse (November 8/9) will change the course of current world activities for next couple of months for worse.
On a positive note, Uranus-Saturn (Nov 21-30) and Pluto-Jupiter (Nov 14-20) ninefold trines will be responsible for positive changes in religious, technical, and scientific (more innovations, discoveries, and inventions) world.
The countries that are likely to make headline news are: United States, Iraq, Russia, Israel, Palestine and China
- United States of America:
President Bush and his administration:
As predicted last month, during October, President Bush continued to come under pressure and be on defensive and continued surge in violence in Iraq put added pressure on Bush administration to defend its position of justification of Iraq war.
Neptune’s continued march opposing the natal Mercury and Pluto in President Bush’s birth chart will keep the administration on defensive. Around November 20 when Pluto’s transit over his natal Ketu and opposite natal Rahu and Uranus will force President Bush to make difficult choices as he will come under strong pressure from international community to change his present course on Iraq policy. President’s Bush’s popularity and job rating will be on decline due to his stubbornness to change on certain key international and domestic policies. Interestingly during the same time it’s very likely that Saddam Hussein (if he is alive) will be back in news as Pluto transits over Saddam’s natal Rahu.
The Pluto-Uranus ninefold 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 also with domestic matters. There will be a transformation of a political strategy (as it did in last March) that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda, and foreign policy matters of the Bush 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 President Bush and his administration will be forced to face with.
If terrorism is going to strike in the United States in next twelve months it’s very likely that it will be during November 9 through December 7 period. Since several possibilities exist as to nature or form of such activities it’s very difficult to predict one that would actually happen if it happens. During the same period the Democratic Party is certainly going to be transformed by eliminating at least half of the current presidential hopefuls. While Democratic Party going through its transformation the Republic Party will come under serious pressure about its deceptive tactics to win public support for its political agenda. As a result, the Republic Party and republicans including the republican president Bush are likely to run into some very difficult period. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during the same period.
· Russia: November 4-14 period may turned out to be a period of crisis for the Putin administration due to a possible domestic turmoil. Also, economic turmoil is likely.
· Europe: Eastern European countries are likely to be negatively influenced by Neptune-Rahu ninefold opposition. Covert activities may find a new momentum (but because of Neptune’s secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other domestic as well as international conflicts.
· China, Japan and Pacific-rim Countries: Social as well as economic turmoil in China can not be ruled out during the first half of the month.
· Religion: During most part of the month religious activities and authorities will likely to have easy time in promoting their agenda.
· Natural and Man-made Calamities: Periods during which such calamities are more likely to occur are: Nov 9-30.
While man-made calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest, violence, and accidents, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally intensive droughts; and thunderstorms, earthquakes, air crashes and fires.
