The most important and auspicious planetary configurations for the month of November are the Neptune-Uranus ninefold opposition (Oct 30 – Jan 25), Saturn-Ketu (Nov 11 – Jan 10) ninefold trine and the Saturn-Rahu ninefold sextile.
From the human evolution standpoint the Neptune-Uranus ninefold opposition is very important as these modern planets will accelerate the process of human evolution not only just in the technical and scientific areas but also in social and religious fields. Since currently the both Neptune and Uranus are at very close to their slowest possible orbital motion and remain almost at that level for next three months or so this ninefold opposition is going to last through January 25, 2005. Therefore, this period is going to be extremely important.
Because the United States of America is directly influenced by Uranus, this opposition will be distinctly reflected in the transformation of American ideals and convictions through the new political and social changes. The norms that Americans have been used to will certainly going to be transformed, and as a result, world politics will be significantly affected. In the short run it may seem to be a chaotic and confusing situation (deception, attitude of reluctance to change) but in the long run it seems this is a much needed change required for Americans to evolve both socially and morally.
In addition to USA, Russia is likely to be significantly influenced by this Uranus-Neptune opposition as its manifestation will be reflected in sudden change (either positive and negative) in relationships between USA and Russia (and countries of former Soviet Union). And the last but not the least important are the magnificent advances that are going to take place through this period in science and technology through innovations, inventions, and discoveries.
Since Saturn turns retrograde on November 8 its ninefold trine with Ketu is also going to last for a considerable period of time (through January 10). This ninefold trine will not only be responsible for world prosperity but also for transforming the moral codes for world to follow in future.
The other important planetary configurations for November are: Neptune-Mars (Nov 27 – Dec 1) and Saturn-Mars (Nov 5-8) regular and Pluto-Rahu/Ketu (Nov 9 – 16) ninefold squares, and Rahu-Mars opposition. These will be responsible for violence, suicide bombings, terrorism, and natural and manmade calamities all around the world, especially in the middle east region. A short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan is also likely.
The countries that are likely to make headline news are: United States, Russia, Europe, Iraq, Middle Eastern countries including Israel and Palestine, and the Indian subcontinent.
- United States of America:
President Bush and his administration:
As predicted separately at this website, the presidential race (refer to prediction details) between Bush and Kerry is likely to be extremely close and may end up in having a repeat recount scenario as in the last presidential election. If the election outcome becomes final on the election night (about 30% possibility) the planets are likely to slightly favor president Bush to eek out another presidential victory.
Although its influence slowly being diminished, the Pluto continues to transit over the President Bush’s natal Ketu (Southern lunar node) and opposes his natal Rahu (Northern lunar node) and Uranus. As a result, his post Iraq war policies and constant violence in Iraq will continue to put the White House on defensive.
As the Planet Uranus rules the The United States of America, the Uranus-Neptune opposition (Oct 30 – Jan 15) will be distinctly reflected in the transformation of American ideals and convictions through the new political and social changes. The norms that Americans have been used to will certainly going to be transformed, and as a result, world politics will be significantly affected. In the short run it may seem to be a chaotic and confusing situation (deception, attitude of reluctance to change…does this mean the outcome of the election result will remain uncertain for a long time while it is being contested between lawyers of both parties?…certainly an interesting possibility) but in the long run it seems this is a much needed change required for Americans to evolve both socially and morally. To put it differently, perhaps it’s the force of American destiny causing Americans to go through a series of unique and painful experiences before it transforms the nation to a new reality.
Despite the possibility that during this month the country’s political future is likely to remain in limbo the November 14 – 18 period looks to be very positive for the United States..
· Russia: During the first week of November (Nov 5-8) occurrence of an either a terrorist related incident or social unrest is likely. Also, during the last week of the month (Nov 27 – Dec 1) Russian politics is likely to experience challenges and uncertainties either due to social unrest or due to Chechnya rebels.
· Europe: November 9-16 is not a positive period for European continent as terrorism possibility (in the form of violence and suicide bombings) looms. The rest of the month seems favorable for economics and politics.
· Religion: The last week of the month is positive for world religions. The second week may prove to be challenging for religious leaders around the world.
· Natural and Man-made Calamities: Neptune-Mars (Nov 27 – Dec 1) and Saturn-Mars (Nov 5-8) regular and Pluto-Rahu/Ketu (Nov 9 – 16) ninefold squares, and Rahu-Mars opposition are likely to be responsible for events related to both man-made and natural calamities. Consequently the major part of the worldwide calamities (both manmade and natural) are likely to occur during November 5 – 16 and during the last few days of the month.
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.
