    This Vedic astrology writer has been predicting that during year 2017 , ociations or unions or conglomeration of some en ies or countries may develop serious fissures which could even lead to break-away in vulnerable cases across the globe. It was also predicted that such trends could begin to manifest in some small measure around 24 June and after to grow stronger during August-September in year 2017 , more so from 19 August to 4 September with peak hype on 30 August ( it could be 29 in the west) 2017. While these are the indications of likely trends to shape up , these need not be construed to be of deterministic or certainty character because more human care and appropriate strategy has weight.
