Tuesday & Condoleeza Rice
April 4, 2004
In the recent Forecasts, I suggested that the planetary energies ease
in April and then intensify again toward the end of the month, making
this month a good time to rest and recoup your
The impetuous for this suggestion comes from
elevated discord during Mars' January 25 to March 11 transit through
Aries and ...several
impending astronomical events promising to shake up the world later
this spring and summer.
Dates for these events were listed in The
Times They Are A Changin.While there is relative calm in April, like any interval, there are sensitive
Below is the Vedic chart for this coming
Tuesday, April 6, which promises to be difficult, perhaps in the
extreme. Shown in red are aspects to Jupiter from three malefics
(harmful planets) Mars, Rahu and Saturn. If you look at the
degrees of each, you'll see they are close to Jupiter's 16'12", and
considering that Rahu moves backwards, it is actually approaching
Jupiter. Thereby, this head of a serpent promises a lightening and
toxic attack. Jupiter's optimism, judgment, faith and good fortune are
entirely spoiled by this triplicate barrage. The other benefic
planets are also oppressed:
being close to Mars stimulates for passion in all things and
no patience for or with anything.
The Moon conjunct Ketu tremendously sensitizes the emotions
and creates false imaginings.
Mercury is slowing down for its
retrograde beginning April 7 and s conjunct Rahu, making
communications both flustered and blurred.
recall that Tuesday is Mars' day of the week, which further
stimulates Mars' violence and discord.
Tuesday, then, is a day to use care in your activities and not begin
or engage in efforts or projects that may be stressful or are
inherently antagonistic. Tuesday will also likely bring further
escalation in the Jihad (religious war) that began in Iraq during
Mars' transit through Aries and has gradually intensified since
then. Certainly recent brutality in Iraq, Israel, Pakistan, Afghanistan
and Spain has all been of the same Muslim extremist cloth.
On the right is Rice's chart with an uncon- firmed birth time of
11:30 AM. However, preliminary analysis supports this
While this Tuesday will create
challenge for many folks, Condoleeza Rice will be on the
receiving end of this Tuesday turbulence during her Thursday
testimony before the 9-11 Committee. That is, further
(perhaps even momentous) violence just before Rice testifies
will stimulate tough questions from Committee members about the
efficacy of this National Security Advisor's job performance
before and after 9-11. Given the planetary influences
upon her chart, Rice will not be able to defend herself.
She will be a very nervous and fearful lady that day.
President Bush can only be harmed by this key official being
The accuracy of any Vedic prediction rests
in part upon the momentum achieved in a situation. It seems
that sufficient momentum has been gained in the controversy over
Bush's handling of 9-11, and his conse- quent invasion of Iraq, that
Condoleeza Rice's testimony may be the proverbial straw that broke
the camel's back.
As promised in The
Times They Are A Changin, charts for the major players in this
real life drama will be interpreted in upcoming Forecasts with
regard to major astronomical events this spring that will challenge
the Bush administration at the Iraq turnover date at the end of
June. Events this week will likely set the stage for that
