Date Posted: October 31, 2013
A total solar eclipse occurs on November 3 approximately during the hours of 12:15 – 13:30 GMT. This eclipse will be visible in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Western Russia, South America and the east-coast of the North America.
This eclipse is important since the Sun and Moon will be within 4 degrees from Rahu, the Northern or ascending node in the sidereal zodiac sign Libra. Consequently this eclipse, according to Vedic astrology, is likely to be unfavorable for those who have sidereal Libra rising or Libra as moon sign.
For those who have the lunar nodes in conjunction with either Sun or Moon in their natal charts should watch-out. It’s not a good day! Take extra precaution and avoid any sort of outdoor activity requiring you to get out of house during the time of eclipse.
On world scene, Europe, Middle East, North America, Africa and South America are likely to experience undesirable happenings.
The important challenging planetary configurations for November include Uranus-Saturn (Nov 16-19) and Pluto-Rahu (Nov 15-22) ninefold quincunxes, Pluto-Uranus (Oct 13 – Nov 19) square, and Saturn-Rahu/Ketu (Nov 22-25) ninefold squares.
The Uranus-Saturn and Pluto-Rahu ninefold quincunxes may become responsible for increased tension between the United States of America and Russia or China. And also for a social or political turmoil in USA, Russia and China.
The Pluto-Uranus square has been responsible for a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda and other international issues, and with its domestic matters. As a result there has been a transformation of a political strategy (no direct involvement in Middle East crisis) which has become responsible for a change in the foreign policy matters of the Obama administration as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of politics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Expect some more serious issues that the Obama administration is likely to get tangled with such as affordable health care and national debt.
The manifestation of the ninefold squares of Saturn with the lunar nodes may be reflected in the increased barbaric activities all around the world. Terrorists are likely to be successful in creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in Europe may become responsible for new political, international and social challenges that countries like China and Russia must face during the last week of the month.
The auspicious planetary configurations for October include Pluto-Neptune (Nov 1-7), Neptune-Saturn (Nov 18-23) and Pluto-Saturn (Nov 24 – Dec 1) ninefold trines and Saturn-Rahu ninefold sextile.
The Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine is positive in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major terrorist cells through covert operation.
The influence of the Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine will be reflected in positive developments in Russia and China. In addition, during the same period, most of the technological areas (especially biotech) are likely to make significant progress via inventions and discoveries. Spiritual and religious activities are likely to impart positive energy, creating a very healthy atmosphere around us.
The Pluto-Saturn ninefold trine may become responsible for a good period for European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are: USA, Europe, China, Russia and the Middle East (Turkey, Syria, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions).
- United States of America:
President Obama and his administration:
Until February 2014, President Obama’s operating planets will be Mercury and Pluto. In his progressive chart, the Mercury will remain in the3rd house of his progressive chart through December 1. During November Pluto is going to be in the fifth house of his progressive chart and in the first house of his ninefold progressive chart. While Pluto is favorable for him for November, Mercury for him will continue to be unfavorable during the entire month. Thus, he will continue to have tough time dealing with international issues (US spying charges), debt ceiling, budget and health care. Also, there might be some drastic changes in people that surround him and give him their advice.

The Uranus-Saturn quincunx will be responsible for increased tension between the United States and Russia, and between the Obama administration and the conservative republicans.
· Russia: During the first week of the month and then during the third and the fourth week of November, the Pluto-Neptune, Neptune-Saturn and the Pluto-Saturn quincunxes will respectively be responsible for increased economical growth and political stability.
· Europe: Except for the third week of the month, the entire month looks to be very positive. During the third week natural and man-made calamities are very likely.
· China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: Besides the Uranus-Saturn quincunx (which occurs during the third week of the month) things look to be good for the region. During the second half of the month, the Neptune-Saturn and the Pluto-Saturn ninefold trines may become responsible for social and political stability in China. And the economic progress will continue to remain unabated.
· Middle East: During the first week of the month the situation in the Middle-East will be volatile and critical. However, somehow the crisis will be mitigated later towards the end of the month. But for the entire region, due to the Pluto-Uranus square, the first twenty days of the month may prove to be very explosive involving intense conflict between the Israelis and others with the involvement of the USA.
· Religion: The Rahu-Jupiter ninefold trine (Nov 2-14) may become responsible for the positive period for religions around the world. The religious leaders will have easy time in carrying out their agenda. In addition, the influence of Neptune-Saturn ninefold trine will result in progress in spirituality of the world.
· 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 November 1-19 and 22-25.
Earthquakes: Based on the earthquake prediction model II, the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on November 1-2, 7, 13, 19, 22, 24, and 28-30. 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.
