The important challenging planetary configurations for October include Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx (Oct 12-16), Neptune-Mars (Oct 20-22) square, Uranus-Saturn (Oct 2-5) and Neptune-Rahu/Ketu (Oct 16-30) ninefold squares. And the auspicious planetary configurations for October include: Pluto-Neptune (Sept 22 – Oct 15) and Saturn-Ketu (Oct 15-18) ninefold trines and Uranus-Saturn (Oct 23-27) ninefold sextile.
The Neptune-Saturn ninefold quincunx and the Neptune-Mars square may become responsible for rise in covert activities, political and social turmoil in places like Russia and China. Possibilities of natural as well as man-made calamities are high during this period all around the world, especially in Russia and China. Religious activities around the world will likely to appear more secretive than open.
In addition, Neptune-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be reflected in increased secret activities all around the world. Social confusion and chaos in countries like Russia and China are real possibilities.
The auspicious ninefold trines and sextile will continue to be responsible for scientific advances and technological breakthrough in areas of biotechnology, medicine, high tech and communication sciences. Also, the world economic growth will be reflected in rising financial markets.
The countries that are most likely to be affected during this month will be: Russia, China, Middle-East (Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel), Europe and the United States.
- United States of America:
President Obama and his administration:
His operating planet Neptune, being retrograde and stationed in the seventh house of his progressive chart, and with Neptune’s opposition to his natal Uranus, President Obama will be dealing with international challenges during October. With Uranus in the eighth house of his progressive chart and in the first house of his ninefold progressive chart, he is likely to continue making some dramatic changes in his cabinet to meet the current economical and political challenges. With the midterm election looming he will be the focus of criticism by the staunch conservatives and hard line republicans. Finally with Venus becoming retrograde on October 8 (Venus being his operating planet), the last three weeks of October are likely to make him frustrated. But due to Neptune’s opposition to his natal Uranus, he will prevail.
The Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (Oct 2-5) will certainly be responsible for political crisis within the Republican Party. The ninefold squares of Neptune with the lunar nodes (Oct 16-30) will be reflected in revelations of political secrets, and those revelations will prominently influence the midterm election’s outcome. New leaders are likely to emerge in line with the country’s moral and spiritual destiny.
The Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine and Uranus-Saturn ninefold sextile are certainly positive for the United States from economical growth, social evolution and political stability standpoint.
· Russia: While the first half of October will bring stability and prosperity for the region, the second half of the month will see new political challenges emerging. Covert activities will be on rise during the same period. Economically the first half of the month is good for Russia.
· Europe: The first week of the month may prove to be chaotic and uncertain from economy standpoint. The second week will prove to be very positive from all aspects: social, economical, political and global relations. However, during the second half of October, the relationship with the neighboring countries like Russia and eastern Europe is likely to turn sour, and covert activities with in the continent will see acceleration. During the third week, the occurrences of natural and man-made calamities are likely.
· China, Japan, and Pacific-rim countries: The second half of October is certainly not good for China from politics standpoint. The Neptune-Rahu/Ketu ninefold squares will become the cause for socially chaotic situation and rising social tension. The financial markets will be volatile during the same period. Destruction of wealth due to natural calamities or man made accidents are also likely during the same period.
· Middle East: The last two weeks of October will be negative for the region since terrorism, violence and social unrest will likely to accelerate, especially in Israeli-Palestine and Afghan-Pakistani region. The behind the scene activities such as future plotting of terror attacks and covert activities related to terrorism will certainly be prominent during the second half of the month. The Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan regions will likely to experience more violence and unrest during the same period.
· Religion: The influence of retrograde Jupiter in Pisces will be reflected in slowing down of religious activities around the world. The religious and spiritual leaders will use this time to reflect on past and perhaps understand the underlying current for world spiritual transformation.
· 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 more likely to occur on October 16-30.
Earthquakes: Based on the new earthquake prediction model (based on 1900-2009 data), the earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are likely to occur on October 2, 6-8, 14-15, 17-18, 21, 24, 26 and 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.
