his month there is no New Moon
until the last day of January. This
shows the inaccuracy of the
Julian calendar created by the Romans,
which is the calendar we use. Julius Caesar
wanted a month named after him, hence
July, then the emperor Augustus wanted a
month named after him, so we have
August. Each insisted that their month be
31 days long.
Many cultures use the lunar calendar,
which was created in Persia and is still
used in Turkey today. It is precise with
the lunar cycle of 27 days. The lunar
calendar is a part of the astrology of India
for it connects to the 27 lunar mansions or
the nakshatras. The nakshatras are called
the lunar mansions because the Moon
stays in one nakshatra per day. Each
nakshatra covers 13 degrees 20 minutes of
the zodiac, and the rate of speed the Moon
travels in a day is 13 degrees 20 minutes. In
the Indian calendar each month is named
after the nakshatra the Moon is full. So
the month of February 2014 is Magha.

The financial markets will drop somewhat due to fear. The volatility of the markets will be extreme. around the time Mars enters Libra. It seems many planets are slowing down to shift directions. The Venus and Jupiter opposition has saved the planet from great difficulty. but next summer I predict the markets to really drop when Jupiter goes into Cancer due to Saturn aspecting Jupiter. On another note. As always. Mars’ aspect will weaken the power of Venus causing more difficulty in the world. pay closer attention to communications. This means on many accounts things are about to change gears. The world is about to explode with big changes. .

Governments will fail and cause great problems financially. so the financial predicament in the world becomes unstable. Purva Ashadha. This is when Jupiter will be aspected by Saturn temporarily. So the events this spring will begin to really intensify. Saturn will reach 29 degrees again in November where the process of change will be complete. As Saturn begins to station it is at the last degree in Libra (29 degrees) indicating a massive ending of many regimes that are currently in power. Venus and Saturn are in Parivartan (mutual reception).

who will win this most esteemed game? This one is not an easy prediction – this game will be exciting! I believe it will begin with the Seattle Seahawks coming on strong but then the Denver Broncos will take the lead and win. Comparing the birth chart for Russia there may be more mishaps and terrorism than expected. Moon and Rahu. This would be a terrorist’s dream. Super Bowl XLVIII 2014 In the US February is the time of the Super Bowl. What are they thinking? Obviously they didn’t ask an astrologer because this is around the day Mercury goes retrograde on February 6. What is my prediction. look totally inconvenient and troublesome. .

Russell Wilson for the Seattle Sea Hawks has transiting Jupiter trine natal Rahu (Aquarius) and Venus (Libra) and Payton Manning for the Denver Broncos has transiting Jupiter trine natal Venus (Aquarius) and Rahu (Libra) as well. His aspects are more exact. This means nothing will go as planned and there will be many mishaps. Both the quarterbacks of each team have a grand trine with transiting Jupiter. But Manning has natal Mars in Gemini with transiting Jupiter. So it is a really tough call. Look out for unexpected events. however. But this prediction is only valid if the game starts around the time of 6:25pm. indicating explosive events. And transiting Mars will be aspecting their natal Saturn. Looking at the Quarterback’s Birth Charts I base my predictions on many variables I use for sports predictions but here is one variable I consider.

Manning’s Moon is Capricorn and Wilson’s moon is in Cancer.Payton Manning (Denver Broncos) Not knowing the time of birth I use their Moon as the Ascendant.
