The years 2013 and 2014 are loaded with planetary significance because some rare plantetary configurations occur during his periond.However since slow moving planets-Saturn,Jupiter and Rahu are involved-heir effects will be felt before actual formations and will be in effect even after 2014-15. These changes both negative and positive will cause deep changes in countries,organizations and society.
