Political strain ahead

Around 2:23 am GMT on January 29, 2009, following a solar eclipse on January 26, the transiting Sun will become conjunct stationary Rahu at 15° 17' Capricorn (in the sidereal zodiac) and opposite Ketu at 15° 17' Cancer. This conjunction suggests serious strain in the political life of countries with 15° rising or planets placed at this degree in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. Israel is likely to have a setback, possibly in the area of foreign policy. The UK may also experience some setback. The strain is predicted to be most acutely felt around 24 hours before and after the conjunction becomes exact.

Rahu and Ketu are maximum and minimum points in the Moon’s orbit around the Earth that intersect with the Earth's ecliptic orbit around the Sun. The ancients followed the nodes in order to predict solar and lunar eclipses. The meaning of the planets becoming conjunct the stationary nodal axis is explained in the article the truth about eclipses.
