The first week of December is very likely to be filled with events that deal with violence, terrorism, and suicide bombings in Middle East, Iraq, Israel-Palestine areas, and possibly in the USA. Attacks against western interests abroad, especially against US interests are very probable. Planetary configurations that are responsible for such violenct events are: Uranus-Rahu ninefold conjunction (Nov 30 – Dec 8), Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (Nov 9 – Dec7), Neptune-Saturn quincunx (Dec 4-23), Pluto-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares (Nov 27 – Dec 4).
Pluto-Uranus square (Nov 9 – Dec 7) has been responsible for dominating news from and about Iraq, guerrilla warfare between the US arm forces and the Iraqi opposition forces (highest monthly US troops casualty rate in November), and continued violence in Middle east area. In addition, Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (Dec 27-31) and Pluto-Saturn ninefold conjunction (Dec 23-28) will be manifested in to more violence and terrorist related activities all around the globe during the last week of the month.
USA will be significantly involved with violence related conflicts and as a result it will put additional pressure on Bush administration to handle the conflicts. Neptune-Saturn quincunx (Dec 4 -23) means deceptive atmosphere surrounding the world events and increased covert activities. It also means Bush administration is likely to come under severe pressure in explaining the deception and lies surrounding such events.
On a positive note, Rahu-Jupiter (Dec 10-28) trine will be responsible for positive changes and progress 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, Middle Eastern countries including Israel and Palestine.
- United States of America:
President Bush and his administration:
Neptune’s continued march opposing the natal Mercury and Pluto in President Bush’s birth chart will continue to keep the administration on defensive. It also means Mr. Bush would be tangled in a political snafu, and will be forced to explain the American people the justification for his actions which allegedly stemmed from deception and lies. Pretty much the entire month President Bush and his administration will come under severe political pressure. President Bush is likely to experience tremendous stress, and as a result, it will become increasingly difficult for him to make sound decisions on both domestic and foreign policy matters. It would be not be, therefore, a surprise if he makes a blunder on such matters. President’s Bush’s popularity and job rating will certainly be on decline as his adversaries will constantly be on his tail on Iraq war issues.
The Pluto-Uranus ninefold square (Nov 9-Dec 7) has already brought changes in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda when it announced it’s shift in Iraq policy in the third week of November focusing more on accelerated schedule of transfer of power to Iraqis. Such a transformation of a political strategy (as it did in last March) will continue till Dec 7 (perhaps it will reflect in domestic matters) that might become responsible of a change in the current political agenda. Expect some serious domestic issues that President Bush and his administration will be forced to deal with.
As stated last month, 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.
Heavy friction between Democrats and Republicans (also between liberals and conservatives) is very likely during the first week of December. While Democratic Party will continue through its transformation phase the Republic Party will come under serious political pressure to explain matters that are clouded with deception and lies. Also, the relationship between USA and Russia is likely to go through a crisis period.
· Russia: Almost the entire month, in general, is not favorable for Russia, especially for the Putin administration. In addition to deal with on going political crisis it will have to seriously deal with economic problems during the latter part of the month.
· Europe: Eastern European countries are likely to be negatively influenced by Neptune-Saturn quincunx. Covert activities will likely to continue (but because of Neptune’s secretive character we may never know) with regard to terrorism and other domestic as well as international conflicts.
· Religion: Rahu-Jupiter trine will provide favorable atmosphere for religious activities to flourish. Religious 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: Dec 1-8, 11-20, and 23-31.
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.
