Monthly Global Predictions for August 2014

Date Posted: July 31, 2014

About the Israel-Palestine Crisis…..

In the Research Journal of NCGR (National Council for Geocosmic Reseach), Volume 2, Fall/Winter 2011-2012, I wrote an article:  Modern Planets and Wars, Uprisings, Revolutions and Violence.  In that article the following prediction was made:

Based on the this research which is limited only to the four outermost planets, the 
next future event that might deal with uprising, war, revolution, violence or unrest 
may occur during July-August 2014 when the ninefold angles for three pairs (Pl-Ur, 
Pl-Ne, Pl-Sa) will come close to 135 degree, two pairs (Ne-Sa, and Ur-Sa) form 90 
degree, and the Ne-Ur form zero degree angle.

In light of what has been happening since late June/ early July (three air plane crashes, one of them was blown up in the sky over Ukraine skies by a missile, Iraq civil war in the early part of July, and then a deadly conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Israeli-Palestine region) it’s interesting to note the remarkable correlation between the occurrences of the current events and their corresponding planetary configurations (ninefold angles or aspects) as they are being unfold. Although the article points to the July-August 2014 period, the actual plots (graphs) as shown in the Annual Prediction column for 2014 seem to extend that period to October 2014. Therefore, it would be interesting to observe the crisis as they being unfold (perhaps the prominent one yet to be manifested) during the next few months.

About the Malaysian Airline Flight 370………

This is what was posted on March 31…..

With the north lunar node (Rahu) and the retrograde Mars within 5 degrees in sidereal Libra along with the exalted Saturn and Moon, we enter the Spring Equinox of 2014. The mysterious disappearance of the Malaysian flight 370 (Rahu + retrograde Mars in air sign Libra) on Saturday, March 8 (soon after Mars and Saturn turned retrograde) is intriguing.  The nature of the retrograde Mars, Rahu and the retrograde Saturn means a possible tragedy in air (accidents?).  Did the plane crashed over sea?  Considering the planetary picture, none of these planets connected to water sign…and therefore, it doesn’t seem likely that the plane crashed over waters. Did it crash over land?  Only if the mystery gets solved before the Mars become direct.  If the mystery is not solved by the time Mars becomes direct (May 20) then it’s possible that survivors of that flight (at least some of them) might be found.

Update (July 31, 2014)

Although there was no news of the missing Malaysian Flight 370 that disappeared on March 8, it was interesting to note that the tragic shooting of the Malaysian Flight over the Ukraine happened as Mars was returning the sidereal Libra (an air sign) indicating accidents in air.  Indeed the subsequent tragedies of airplane crashes over Taiwan, and the explosion of airplane that left Mali for Nigeria confirm the influence of accident prone Mars causing accidents in air as it returned to the air sign sidereal Libra.

Global Predictions……

The important challenging planetary configurations for August include, Uranus-Saturn (June 23 – Aug 15) and Uranus-Mars quincunxes, Neptune-Saturn (July 28 – Aug 10) ninefold square, Saturn-Mars (August 23-26) conjunction and Neptune-Uranus (August 11 – September 14) ninefold conjunction.  

The manifestation of the Uranus-Saturn quincunx will be reflected in rise in covert activities among nations, possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities and political and social turmoil in places like Russia and China.  Non-democratic countries (Iraq, Syria?) are likely to see shift of power from one faction (or dictator) to another. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open. 

The Uranus-Mars quincunx may become responsible natural and man-made calamities, especially in the United States of America.

The Neptune- Saturn ninefold square will become responsible for chaotic situation in countries like China and/or Russia.  International covert activities will be at the elevated level. 

The Neptune-Uranus ninefold conjunction may become responsible for emergence of a new crisis causing increased friction between the USA and Russia.

The manifestation of the Saturn-Mars conjunction in the the air sign, sidereal Libra will certainly be worth watching.  An occurrence of tragedy in air (as in airplane crash) is likely.

The auspicious planetary configurations for August include Uranus-Rahu (July 23 – Aug 6) and Pluto-Saturn (Aug 24 – Sept 1) ninefold trines and to some extent Neptune-Uranus (August 11 – September 14) ninefold conjunction.  

The influence of the Uranus-Rahu ninefold trine maybe reflected in decrease in friction between the USA and countries like Russia and China, and possibly less tension and violence in the Middle-East region.

The manifestation of the Pluto-Saturn ninefold trine is likely to be reflected in a good period for European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and to some extent for religious reconciliation.

The Neptune-Uranus ninefold conjunction may become responsible for magnificent advances in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries, especially in the United States.

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  United States, Russia, China, and the Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions).

About President Obama….(one of the worst months of his presidency?)

For August 2014, President Obama’s operating planets are going to be  Mercury and Ketu. Mercury will remain in sidereal Cancer until August 12, then into sidereal Leo till August 29 (it then moves into the next sidereal zodiac sign-Virgo on August 29). Therefore, in his progressive chart, Mercury will remain in the 12th house until August 12, then in the first house till August 29. Since the 12th and the first house Mercury are unfavorable, for him, the month of August 2014 will go down as one of the worst months of his presidency as he will dealing with several challenges and almost a total ineffectiveness in governing the country.  Add to it the negative influence of 8th house Ketu in his progressive chart…no wonder he will remember this month all his life.  Towards the end of the month, however, there maybe a possibility of him becoming successful in turning the tide of his miserable period as the Mercury enters the favorable second house in his progressive chart on August 29.

About USA…..

The Uranus-Saturn quincunx will continue to be the cause for rising friction between democratic and republican leaders till August 15.  Also, during the same period, the possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities can not be ruled out.  The Saturn-Mars conjunction (August 23-26) will likely to be responsible for an open rift among the republicans with respect to the stand on several key issues, including the border and Middle-East crisis.  The Uranus-Mars quincunx (August 21-23) is likely to be responsible for natural (especially fire related) and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives. 

The manifestation of the Neptune-Uranus ninefold conjunction will be reflected in magnificent advances in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries. Expect some new important technological breakthroughs during this month.

·        Russia:  Uranus-Saturn quincunx (till August 15) will be reflected in rise in covert activities in Russia, Ukraine and the surrounding area, possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities and political and social turmoil. The Saturn-Mars conjunction (Aug 23-26) may become responsible for increased violence in Ukraine. 

·        Europe:  The Uranus-Saturn quincunx will likely to be the cause for rising friction between the USA and some of the major European countries. Also, the possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities can not be ruled out. In addition, the Saturn-Mars conjunction may leave its mark with a deadly event (natural or man-made calamity) during Aug 23-26.

·        China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries:  For China, the first half of the month may turn out to be chaotic from social and political stability standpoint. However, the rest of the region is likely to enjoy this month with positive events. The economic activities will continue to expand in the entire region.

·        Middle East:  Under the influence of the Uranus-Saturn quincunx, the situation in the Middle-East will continue to become more volatile and uncertain.  As predicted last month, a new crisis in Israel Palestine region did emerge with the killing of three Israeli citizens by Hamas terrorist, and exploded into tragic violence due to fight between Israeli soldiers and Hamas group. The entire month of August is extremely prone to more violence not just only in Israeli-Palestine region but in the entire Middle-East region.

·        Religion:  The Neptune-Saturn ninefold square and Uranus-Saturn quincunx may become responsible for fresh round of fighting among the fanatic religious groups.

·        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 almost through the entire month, especially during August 1-17, and 21-26.

      Earthquakes: Based on the earthquake prediction model II, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on August 1, 3-4, 8-11, 18, 25-26.

      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
