Monthly Global Predictions for October 2016

Date Posted: September 30, 2016

About Uranus’s entry in sidereal Aries ……..

One of the important planetary events of 2016 is the transit of the modern planet Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. Uranus entered sidereal Aries on June 24, and it stayed there till September 4 before it returned to Pisces due to its retrograde motion.  It will station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will return to Aries, and will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so. 

Although it’s going to be in Aries for a short while (June 24 – Sept 4) before it returns to Aries next year, Uranus being the planet of change will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in world political landscape is going to be tremendously influenced by Uranus’s transit in Aries. The people who are most affected by this transit are military personnel, business leaders and political leaders.  In scientific and technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will find their way into innovations and discoveries.  The scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace.  A new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on world order will certainly transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to. 

On individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage, profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.

About Brexit..

Personally, I don’t put a lot of stalk in the chart of a country since before the inception time of the chart the land existed.  Instead, I look at the characteristics of the zodiac signs and planets associated with that land and the planetary transits. 

In my opinion, UK is very closely tied with the sign Aries, a cardinal and fiery sign ruled my mighty Mars, and where Sun gets exalted.  This is clearly reflected in the way Briton dominated the world in last few centuries.  

Uranus in Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and Aries (ruled by Mars) being extremely independent sign…this combination may produce very positive for UK.  (read above about the Uranus’s transit in Aries). But Uranus being whimsical and as it constantly demands change (therefore unsteady) it has been interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 – September 4 in UK.  Because Uranus has returned to sidereal Pisces after Sept 4 and will stay in Pisces till April 6, 2017 a possibility of reversal of Brexit (which may very well be short lived) exists! Let us see how Briton evolves during next few months.  It will be a glimpse or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.

About President Obama and his challenges……

President Obama’s operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Mercury and  Sun.  In addition, Moon will remain as an operating planet for him till November 11.

During October, Mercury remains in sidereal Leo (the first house of his progressive chart) till October 3, then it enters Virgo (the second house of his progressive chart) and remains in Virgo till the October 21, then enters Libra (the third house of his progressive chart), and remains there till the end of the month. 

Until October 3, he will continue to have difficult time in staying focused and avoiding the wrong company of people.  After October 3, the favorable second house Mercury will provide him with the  opportunity to be successful in effectively governing the country. However, after October 21,  his adversaries may have upper hand, and as a result, he will have frustrating period dealing with them.

Sun is presently transiting through the unfavorable second house of his progressive chart till October 17.  And then for the remaining part of the month, through a favorable house (the second house) of his progressive chart.  As a result, till October 17, from Sun’s transit standpoint, he is likely to face with disappointment, delays, deceit, mental stress and defeat in governing the country, but later he will succeed in dealing with his both domestic and international political challenges.

As far as Moon is concerned, because it’s very favorably (exalted Moon) placed in his natal chart, despite the negative influence of Mercury and Sun, he will somehow successfully manage his presidency and the popularity.

Thus, summing the influence of all the operating planets as explained above, overall, the third week of October (Oct 17-21) looks to be positive for him, and other days are likely to be difficult and frustrating. 

Global Predictions……

The important challenging planetary configurations for October include Neptune-Rahu (Oct 7 – Nov 22) opposition, Neptune-Jupiter (Oct 18-26) quincunx, Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 – Nov 5) ninefold quincunx, Rahu/Ketu-Saturn (Sept 17 – Oct 3) and Uranus-Mars (Oct 27-28) squares, Uranus-Saturn ninefold square, and Pluto-Mars (Oct 17-18) conjunction.

The Neptune-Rahu (Oct 7 – Nov 22) opposition may become responsible for social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China. Eastern European countries are also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration.  Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts.

The Manifestation of the Neptune-Jupiter (Oct 18-26) quincunx maybe reflected in new challenges that the world religious leaders are likely to face. New controversial issues will take the central stage in the religious world. Religious leaders will be challenged as they are going to be put on the test by these issues. Those who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new and fresh ideas without losing morality, are the ones that going to be responsible to guide people.

The Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 – Nov 5) ninefold quincunx may bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda, and also with its domestic matters. There might be some serious issues that the Obama administration could get tangled with.

The direct squares of Saturn with the lunar nodes (Sept 17 – Oct 3) and Uranus-Mars (Oct 27-28) square mean barbaric activities all around the world are likely to increase. Terrorists are likely to be successful in creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in USA, Europe and Middle East is likely.

The manifestation of the Pluto-Mars (Oct 17-18) conjunction may be reflected in escalation of terrorism and violence in places like India-Pakistan and Israel-Palestine area.  Strong possibilities of both natural and man-made calamities are also likely.

The important auspicious planetary configuration for this month include, Saturn-Rahu (Oct 19-23) ninefold trine, Pluto-Saturn (Sept 26 – Oct 4) and Neptune-Saturn (Oct 14-19) ninefold sextiles.

The Pluto-Saturn (Sept 26 – Oct 4) ninefold sextile may become responsible for a better European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

The manifestation of the Neptune-Saturn (Oct 14-19) ninefold sextile may be reflected in having a positive period for China and Russia in handling their domestic issues as well as improving the foreign relations through better policies. The republicans in the United States will have upper hand over democrats. 

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  Russia, China, the republican leaders in the USA, Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions) and India. 

About USA…..

The manifestation of the Neptune-Saturn (Oct 14-19) ninefold sextile may be reflected inhaving a positive period for the republican leaders in the United States.  They are likely to have an upper hand over democrats.  The Uranus-Mars (Oct 27-28) square may become responsible for terrorism and social turmoil.
