April is going to be a month of mixed results for most of the world.
One of the important planetary events of April is the transit of the modern planet Uranus from (sidereal) Capricorn to Aquarius on April 4. It will stay in Aquarius till July 27, and then with its retrograde motion returns to Capricorn and stays in Capricorn till January 24, 2002. After January 2002 it will reenter Aquarius and stay there for the following 6 to 7 years. Although it’s going to remain in Aquarius only for a short while before it returns to Aquarius next year, Uranus being the planet of change will certainly affect the matters related to Aquarius sign in a big way. The drastic changes in our social perception about the way we live is going to be tremendously influenced by Uranus’s entry in Aquarius. In scientific and technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and new ideas will find their way to manifest into innovations and discoveries. The scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace. A new wave of philosophers with their new perspectives on living, in general, will certainly transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level of understanding. The transit of Uranus through Aquarius is particularly important for the United States as it directly influences that country in shaping her future.
The Pluto-Neptune (till April 16) ninefold trine will maintain the stability around the world thus providing the desired climate for political, economical, and social improvement. However, Neptune-Saturn (April 2-10) and Saturn-Jupiter (till April 7) ninefold squares will become responsible for potential political turmoil in countries like Russia and China, and a serious setback for the initiative of the Republic Party in the United States respectively.
The Neptune-Jupiter ninefold conjunction (April 4-7) will prove very positive for religious activities all around the world.
- United States: Uranus transit in Aquarius on April 4 will perhaps result in a sudden shift in Bush administration’s domestic as well as international policies. Bush administration may find the first week of April and April 13 through 21 period very trying and frustrating. For the country, expect the sudden occurrence of both the manmade and natural calamities during the last week of the month (April 26-30).
· Russia: The third week of April may prove to be crucial for Russian politics. During the last week (April 28-30) the relationship with the USA may turn sour. However, in general, expect some very positive political and economical development. The government will have a lot more stability to carry out its plan.
· China, Hong Kong, and Pacific-rim countries: China is likely to continue to have to face the political, social and economical problems during April 2-10 and April 18-21 periods. However with these exceptions the month looks good for China as well as Pacific-rim countries from economic and political standpoints. People of China are likely to feel more positive about their future.
· Europe: April 4-10, April 13-15, and April 18-21 are not positive for Europe. During that time expect a sudden outburst of political or economic crisis affecting adversely the entire continent.
· Religion: In general, this month may prove to be very positive for worldwide religious activities, especially April 1-11, April 16-20, and April 26-28 periods. Religious authorities will find less obstacles to carry out their plans. However, during the April 13-15 period a religious crisis may emerge, but is less likely to last long.
· Natural and Man-made Calamities: During April 18-21, and April 26-30 periods, man-made as well as natural calamities and accidents more likely. Otherwise, the month looks pretty much trouble free. Although it is very difficult to predict the geographic locations for man-made and natural calamities, the possibility of those occurring in North and Central America, Mid-East, and Indian subcontinent are more likely.
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 in the northern hemisphere, and equally intensive droughts in the southern hemisphere; and thunderstorms, earthquakes, air crashes and fires.
