The month of March is going to be remembered as the month of deception for most of the major global events occurring in this month. The major planetary configurations that will be responsible for global events in March are: auspicious Rahu-Jupiter (Feb 14 – Mar 11) trine and Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (Feb 26 – Mar 19) secretive squares. While the auspicious trine will be responsible to continue maintaining economical and social progress all around the world the lunar nodes squaring Neptune will manifest themselves in political, social deception as well as violence and terrorism, covert activities, and manmade and natural calamities. Secret activities all around the world are likely to accelerate by the end of February through March 19. Also, during the same period (Feb 26 – Mar 19) Al-Qaida activities might be on rise, and social confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China is probable. Beginning March 14 Neptune-Uranus ninefold opposition will bring added dimension of a new conflict between conservatives and liberals in the United States. Again deception will play a major role in this conflict.
For science and technology March 14 onwards (actually till April 10) this is a great time. Acceleration in research activities resulting in innovations and discoveries in modern medicine and biotechnology are very likely. Other fields such as high-tech, information technology will also make headways.
In general, while the first two-to-three weeks will be weeks of chaos and confusion, continued violence, terrorism and and suicide bombings in Iraq, Palestine and Israel area the last couple of weeks will be dominated by progress in science and technology.
The countries that are likely to make headline news are: United States, Iraq, Middle Eastern countries including Israel and Palestine, Russia and China.
- United States of America:
President Bush and his administration:
As you probably have already noticed from the last month’s prediction that since February President Bush has been challenged by the retrograde Saturn square to his natal Neptune. As a result, to win their approval he has been resorting to deceptive tactics of repositioning himself before American people directly contradicting to his earlier stand on both domestic and foreign policy (WMD) matters. In doing so he has been facing very difficult and frustrating time (as his stubbornness and reluctant to let his ego go, a unique characteristics of sidereal Taurus Uranus and Rahu), and therefore, he has been under severe political pressure. On March 24, Pluto becomes retrograde. The retrograde Pluto in his ninefold ascendant of his natal chart will certainly be responsible for a beginning phase of transformation in his personality. At this point what this transformation will entail….it’s difficult to predict since possibilities are abound. In my opinion, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a drastic change in his personal agenda which may seriously contradict the political agenda of the Republic Party.
For the country in general, the second week (March 10-15) is very negative. A possibility of either man-made or natural calamity or a very chaotic social turmoil exists. the last two weeks are positive from economic expansion and technological advances standpoint.
For the Democratic Party the second week is likely to bring some confusion and chaos but then after the third week it will recover nicely with firm goal and solid national agenda. For the Republic Party the first week (Mar 5-11) indicates frustration and deception. But latter half of the month doesn’t look too bad.
· Russia: The first two weeks of the month will certainly be challenging for the Putin administration. More political secrets are likely to become public perhaps causing a major shift in public perception of government policies.
· Europe: First two weeks of the month may bring unwanted political and social instability in the continent. But second half of the month looks to be positive for the continent from social as well as economic progress standpoint.
· Religion: Religious authorities will likely to come under social and political pressure during the first two weeks of the month.
· Natural and Man-made Calamities: March 5 – 19 is not good period for most of the world, and it’s likely to filled with events related to both man-made and natural calamities.
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.
