The important challenging planetary configurations for April include Pluto-Rahu/Ketu (Mar 27 – April 7) and Uranus-Saturn (April 21-26) ninefold squares and Mars-Pluto (April 10-11) square; Saturn-Mars (April 16-18) opposition and Uranus-Mars (April 1-3) conjunction; Neptune-Saturn (April 6-12) and Neptune-Rahu (April 9-16) ninefold quincunx.
And the auspicious planetary configurations for April are: Saturn-Rahu (March 11- April 10) ninefold sextile and Pluto-Neptune (April 23 -May 15) ninefold trine.
The Pluto-Rahu/Ketu and Uranus-Saturn ninefold squares can cause chaos resulting in terror attacks, uprising and social violence in Europe, North Africa and Middle-East region. The natural as well as man-made calamities will be on rise during the first week of the month all around the world. The world financial markets will exhibit extreme volatility during the same period. In addition, Mars-Pluto square can be devastating in creating havoc in Middle East during the second week of the month and the Saturn-Mars opposition will add to fire by manifesting in increased violence in Middle-East during the third week of the month.
The Uranus-Mars conjunction during the first three days of April is not positive for United States and also for the world financial markets. The uncertainty in financial markets will be at its peak during that time. The Neptune-Rahu and Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunxes may become responsible for covert activities in Europe, China and Russia. In addition, these quincunxes are certainly not favorable for the dictatorial rulers in Middle-East. The world financial markets, especially the oil markets will remain under tremendous volatile conditions.
During the first ten days and the last week of April, the auspicious ninefold trines and sextiles will be responsible for scientific advances and technological breakthrough in areas of biotechnology, medicine, high tech and communication sciences.
The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month will be: Middle-East (Libya, Egypt, Syria, Saudi-Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Palestine and Israel), USA, Russia, China and Europe.
- United States of America:
President Obama and his administration:
President Obama’s operating planet Neptune is no longer in significant opposition to his natal lunar node Rahu, and therefore, his dealing with people of deception will likely to diminish, and going forward he is likely to enjoy better cooperation from both parties as well as from international leaders. In addition, his progressive Jupiter, being in the 8th (11th from the tenth) house of his progressive chart, will continue to help him in successfully govern the country. However, he will still have to be careful in dealing with international matters and foreign dignitaries. During the last three weeks of the month, he is likely to enjoy the fruits of his efforts as reflected in improvement in economy, successful endeavors in Middle East and North Africa in promoting democracies, and international prestige. However, towards the end of the month, he may be faced with a new international crisis that would again require all of his attention and leadership.
During the first week of April, the influence of the Pluto-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares will be predominantly reflected in country’s involvement with Middle-East and North Africa uprising. Also, during the same period, occurrences of natural and man-made calamities are very likely. During the third week, the Uranus-Saturn ninefold squares will be responsible for increased friction between the democrats and republicans over both the domestic and international issues. Also, with in the Republican party the occurrence of a chaotic situation is likely, and subsequently, it will lead to further transformation of the party towards the Tea Party principles. Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine is very favorable for country’s economic growth as scientific advances and technological breakthrough in areas of biotechnology, medicine, high tech and communication sciences will make the headline news.
· Russia: Except for the second and the fourth week of the month, it’s a positive month for Russia, and it will be reflected in economic growth and political stability and improved relationship with the world including the USA. During the second and the fourth week of the month, domestic unrest or natural or man-made calamities are likely. Also, the business and trading relations between the USA and the Russia may hit a temporary road block.
· Europe: The first two weeks of April are challenging for the continent from the occurrences of natural or man-made calamities standpoint. The second half of April may turn out to be positive from the economical progress standpoint. The relationship with USA may become sour during the last ten days of the month. The threat of a terrorist attack will be high during the first two weeks of the month. During the last week of the month religious leaders are likely to come under pressure including the senior leaders from Vatican.
· China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: With Mercury retrograde till March 23, Japan’s recovery from the nuclear disaster due to the earthquake will continue to be sluggish. In my opinion, it will take till the middle of September for Japan to recover from the disaster and return to normal life. The first two weeks are positive for China from economical progress and political stability standpoint. The financial markets for China, Japan, Korea and other pacific-rim-countries will continue to grow.
· Middle East: The social unrest that began since the beginning of the year will continue to spread across the region, especially during the first two weeks of the month. The social transformation of the Middle-East that began with subtle changes since the Uranus entered the sidereal Pisces in March 2009 will continue unabated for the next five to ten years until the entire region become truly democratic. The Pluto-Rahu and Pluto-Ketu ninefold squares will become responsible for violence, terror attacks and social unrest during the first two weeks of the month. The religious leaders and/or fanatics are likely to face challenges from with in their organizations and will have tough time carrying out their agendas especially during the last week of the month.
· Religion: The influence of the Mars-Jupiter conjunction during the last week of the month will be responsible for new crisis for the religious leaders. Unless they adjust to the modern wave of transformation of religious norms they are likely to become frustrated in dealing with people.
· 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 more likely to occur on April 1-7, 10-11, 16-18 and 21-26.
Earthquakes: Based on the new earthquake prediction model, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on April 1, 3-5, 8, 11-12, 14-17, 21-22 and 28-29. 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.
