Grexit in 2017?

Yet another surprise might occur in 2017.

The year before Saturn moves into Capricorn and the economy begins to contract. I have long predicted that the years 2016-2020 to be very dark and gloomy, as we see a trend towards waniny cycles of the outer planets (see my research in previous posts).

Besides negative consequences to the economy from Brexit, Trump and possibly an anti-EU government elected in Netherlands, we might see another surprise: Grexit.

It has been 7 years since the whole Greek crises started. It makes entire sense that a new crises will developed there, because the entire issue has been avoided and postponed since years.

Radical politics is really the topic of 2017, as Uranus reaches a similar position in late Aries as transited in 1933, the year when things in Europe began to heat up and became radical. During such periods, countries become increasingly authoritarian, and some become dictatorships. Most have at least suffered some sort of social unrest.

It´s possible to estimate to which extend each country will become authoritarian:
- Countries that are relatively stable democracies now, without signs of radical politics will probably stay that way (unless invaded by another). Examples: Portugal, Chile, New Zealand, Canada.
- Countries that established a great increase in authoritarian trends (or great social unrest) in recent years, might be key actors in the unfolding of the greatest historical changes in the next decade, like being involved in civil wars, large wars or become a dictatorship. This was the example of Germany in the 1930s. Current examples include UK (Brexit), US (Trump), Turkey (Erdogan), Russia (Putin), Greece (debt crisis), India, Brazil.
- Countries that are already dictatorships, are likely to get involved in wars. This could include China, North Korea, Syria, Iran. During the 1930s, these included Russia, China and Japan.
- Countries that became somewhat affected by authoritarian trends and political unrest, are still the great unknown. These might stay stable, or might develop to civil wars, authoritarian regimes, revolutions. Often it depends in their geographical location according to other more agressive countries. During the WWII, the US was only indirectly affected, the UK was directly affected, and many European countries were invaded. Whilst most of Asia was affected, South America was relatively unaffected. Examples of such countries now include: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Polland and Australia.

It´s a shame that this happens. I am really a lover of democracy, freedom and a multicultural world.

It was back in 2007 that I predicted such scenario: economic depression (2010), followed by radical politics (2016), followed by civil wars (mid 2020s), based in past historical periods.

And I am going to announce another surprise prediction today!

By 2024, we might actually see Mark Zuckerberg running for US presidency. Pluto will then be in Aquarius, so it makes all the sense to see the plutonic powerful figure of Facebook CEO (social network = Aquarius) running for that position. I think companies like Airbnb, Tesla, Uber, Google, will become increasingly more powerful and involved in politics. By then, we will feel a more much upbeat sense of the future.

Astrological predictions for 2017....

Predictions for 2017 and beyond. The world will be very polarized, radicalized and volatile. It is difficult to forecast, but these are my guesses.

  • UK triggers article 50 but then gets involved in a new political crisis involving Brexit. Social tensions rise considerably in the country. Scotland pushes for a referendum in attempts to join EU.
  • Spain: Catalonia pushes for a referendum (fears of a regional conflict could start)
  • Italy gets a bailout, due a bank failure. A renewed Euro crisis, It might influence some European elections in 2017.
  • A big unknown, and hopefully I am wrong, but it is likely that anti-eu nationalists win either in France or in Germany, despite how unlikely it seems now. This is important, because, despite all the crisis, the other country - either France or Germany - will lead an isolated, fragmented and surviving European Union afterwards, even if opposed by the US, UK, Russia and euroskeptic East Europe countries and despite increased IS attacks and a new Euro crisis. But against all odds, the EU and the Euro survives. 
  • Netherlands pushes for an exit of the currency too.
  • Polland and Turkey might push for a stronger regional and authoritarian power status.
  • Trump builds the wall. Some deportations begin. But its more show and propaganda.
  • Trump scandals continue. Faces scrunity of the election hack and Putin links. 
  • US economy in good shape in 2017, but will suffer considerably by the end of the decade.
  • The most negative thing. Trump will get involved into major wars. When? That´s the question, but he will agressively trigger them, between now and 2022. Perhaps Iran, Koreas and later China. Initially a cold war with China, including trade war and cyber war. US likely to be involved in a major physical war by 2022. Australia and India will probably be involved too. It will considerably change the integrity of the US, perhaps with a breakup into separate blocks.
  • Trump and Putin ties are initially good, but later ties sour. Despite that everyone focus in the Baltics, Russia might create a conflict in Moldova or the Balcans. If it´s the Balcans, then a crisis starts about how other european countries might interveene.
  • Uber presents first flying cars, sometime between 2017 and the middle of next decade.
  • Alien disclosure not likely in 2017, but instead later in the 2020s.

Uranus in Taurus. Political backlash against the status-quo, could lead to devastating wars

URANUS IN TAURUS and GEMINI - 2017 to 2031

A pattern of economic crisis (2010) > popular political revolts (now) > major wars (2024) > new world order (2031)


The transit of Uranus between Aries and Cancer (2010 to 2031) is consistent with a pattern of sudden great historical changes. Expect them!

What happens?

- During the transit in Aries and especially Taurus, ECONOMIC CRISIS (marked in yellow) usually happens. As existings leaders become highly unpopular, a backlash of RADICAL POLITICAL REVOLTS AGAINST THE STATUS-QUO develops (marked in red). This is expected between 2017 to 2024 and in fact it is already happening as I predicted ever since 2007.

- During the transit of Gemini, such radical political upheavals lead to DEVASTATING WAR (marked in blue) This happened in 70% of the cases. In the remaining cases, the big wars started in the transit of Cancer (so slightly later). In all cases, except two, EUROPE was the battleground of the war, in the other two it was NORTH AMERICA. The scale ranges from the America civil war and German Peasant war, to the WWII. This is expected between 2024 and 2031.

- During the transit of Cancer, significant politicial and European-wide political rearrangements happened (marked in green). Often a NEW WORLD ORDER emerges. Sometimes in form of historical revolutions (marked in orange). Often a period of economic recession, alongside with the reconstruction from the war times. This is expected between 2031 and 2038.


1934 - Following the Great Depression, Hitler rises to power. Great Purge in Russia. Events leading to the WWII unfold across Europe. Chinese civil war.
1941- World war II
1948- End of war. Many changes worldwide. UN and NATO established. Steps towards an EU. Independence of India.

1851 - Against the background of economic crisis and the Irish famine, and after the 1848 revolutions, radical conservatism emerged in Europe. Italy and Germany progressed to unification, France under dictatorship. Taiping rebellion (Chinese civil war) starts. British Raj in India. Gold rush in America and social tensions prior to American civil war 
1858- Civil war in America starts. British raj in India
1865- Unification of Italy and Germany. Long Depression starts. Paris Commune.

1768 - Stamp act, popular revolt and American revolution starts,
1775- America Revolutionary War, a global conflict involving Spain, France and UK.
1782- Famine and economic crisis across Europe. French Revolution begins

1685 - Glorious revolution in UK in 1688 
1692 - (nothing else significant happened)
1705- War of Spanish Succession starts, another major worldwide war.

1602 - Time of Troubles in Russia (nothing else significant happened). Religious tensions in Germany
1609- Religious tensions and political tensions deepen
1616- Thirty Year War, a devastating Europe-wide conflict

1519 - Spanish conquest of Americas. Luther protestant revolution
1526 - German Peasant War (an European-wide conflict). Siege of Vienna. Mughal Empire in India
1533 - Protestant revolutions continue

Who will likely cause it? Trump!

From what we saw above, we could expect the political tensions to grow ever since 2010 until the end of this decade. We already seen a few examples of brewing tensions (Brexit, Russia, Trump, China, Isis, Turkey, EU). It is highly likely that by 2022 or 2024 these tensions develop into a war that could be devastating. Historically this war should be linked to the political backlash events that already happened (Brexit, Trump) or might still happen.

In most likelihood, Trump could trigger a breakdown of a number of situation across the globe: a conflict with China or in the Koreas, a conflict in Europe due to Russia, a conflict with the Islamic world or, just by words, trigger further popular anger across Europe that leads to civil wars or a breakdown of the EU. It is unlikely that we will see a global war like WWII (I speak of these reasons why in other previous articles), but instead we could expect a massive regional war. Examples could be between the US and China, Russia and parts of Europe, or with the Islamic world. This is the most likely "worst case scenario", which tends to happen 70% of the times, historically. The possibility of a mix of trade wars, cyber wars and hacked elections, is another possibility, albeit new.

There is also a change that civil wars are only located to either the US or one or two of the major countries in Europe (Brexit and France are other risk factors too). There is a minor change that no war happens and only major political events - like the breakup of the integrity of the EU or the USA - becoming the dominant historical event (this is a "best case scenario").

The possibility is (estimated at 90%) that we might see either the breakup of the EU or the USA, in the next 15 years, irregardless of whether a major war occurs or not.

Historically, there hasn´t been a period in recent Uranus in Taurus transits, dominated by constructive historical changes. Except for things in the background like new scientific revolutions and inventions.


SATURN IN CAPRICORN

Saturn enters Capricorn for a 2.5year transit in 2018, and it has done so in the past in the following years:
1988 - this marked the end of the Soviet Union and cold war. The Berlin wall fall in 1989.
1959 - the start of the Vietnam war, and two years later, the Cuban Missile Crisis
1929 - stock market crash and the start of the Great Depression
1900 (nothing special happened)
1871 - Paris commune and two years later, a stock market crash, start of Long Depression
1841 - period of economic depression

Saturn in Capricorn is correlated with economic depression and also with changes between the relationship of North America and Russia. Also important political historical changes can happen in Europe (about half of the times). This could be linked to what we might see between 2018 and 2021.

2016. The eleventh hour.

This is a long post.

2016 has been a shock year worldwide. It seemed dark.

Well, according to my astrological theory, the period of 2016 to 2020 is one of the most difficult and deconstructive periods in world history, I am sorry to say. Mostly because of political extremism.

The period that follows it, 2021-2030 seems to be a radical change of the world order, and many social revolutions, some inspiring but also potencially destructive civil wars and major wars.

Hopefully not, but the astrology does favour a period of radicalism and conflict.

Whatever happens it will leave a deep mark in the history books of the future.

Trump is president-elect, and far right populism spreads across Europe. Many rumours of war. And religious extremism. There is now a significant risk of repeating the danger of the horrors observed in the 1930s, when Uranus was last time in Aries, Pluto was in the opposite sign of Cancer, and Saturn transited from Capricorn to Aries.

This is going to be repeated from 2018 to 2025. (except that Pluto transits Aquarius)

Historically, similar periods have happened beforehand several times. Not just in the 1930s! Back in the 1840s (Uranus was also transiting Aries, and Pluto/Saturn also in cardinal signs), popular revolt surged across nearly every country of Europe, while China and North America faced brutal civil wars.

Pluto was also in Capricorn and Aquarius in 1770s and 1780s, when the America revolution and French revolution happened, amidst a nearly global state of war. Before that Pluto was also in Capricorn and Aquarius, when the Protestant revolution started and Europe descended into civil wars.

Do you see the pattern?
Do you see what is unfolding nowadays?

I can´t imagine that our societal structures and the psyche of mankind has evolved sufficiently to go beyong this danger of war. In fact, the stupidity that resulted in the current wave of events is proof that further chaos and conflict lies ahead. Trump represents a great danger to the world. The current state of the European politics represents another significant risk. Putin and China too.

The transits of outer planets in cardinal signs - like it happens now and it happened in the 1930s, 1840s and 1770s - stir up the collective of mankind into radical urges. While some are constructive, revolutionary and inspiring, many urges are irrational and fear-driven/ anger-driven, therefore resulting in very destructive manifestations, such as wars.

Its difficult to say what happens next. A global war? The breakup of European union? A financial meltdown? Trump and Brexit are definitively game-changers. But there will be more big things unfolding in years ahead.

Back in tje 1930s, everyone got shocked bit by bit, but all assumed that no disaster would ever happened despite the increasing gloom. It´s time to learn the lesson.

- - - - - -

It is time for me to focus in the positive. Because there is nothing we can´t do regarding these global events.

It is time to engage and be a pioneer of the new and the good, the constructive and inspiring, with a spirit of love and peace.

Neptune in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn will inspire idealism and ideology to new heights, next decade. Whether in civil wars, or in positive little good revolutions in your daily life.

It is time to brainstorm what these positive revolutions might be.

Alternative monetary systems. A new global political system for peace and prosperity. A reinvention of democracy? Inspiring new political leaders? An ecological revolution and recovery? Or do we go back to the land, in face of a collapsing world?

Are we going to learn the hard difficult way, just like in the 1930s and 1940s?

One thing is sure. We cannot run away from the problems of the world. The forgotten populations, the frustation feelings in the masses. The mass unemployement. A fragile, unsustainable and unfair financial system. Religious fundamentalism. Increasing climate change. Ecological problems. Mass migrations. Nuclear proliferation. It is time NOW to address these challenges. It´s not time for the status quo. It´s time for a change. Hopefully a peaceful and constructive one.

I know it´s very challenging to find positive solutions for these dramatic problems. But we need that more bright minds come forward and speak out their inspiring solutions.

I wish that 2017 be a year that inspires the future for the best.

Happy New Year for all of you.

Horoscope FUN! Zodiac signs as.... a Law firm

It´s Sunday evening, and time for a new "zodiac signs as..." series!

Signs as... people the Law firm I used to work for has represented!
Aries: Caught fire because a neighbor fucked up at operating a tractor so bad that literally everything for like a quarter mile caught fire.
Taurus: Stalked by co-worker, sued management for not doing anything about the co-worker. Management defended their inaction on the grounds that the stalker was from Eastern Europe and they thought stalking was “pretty much culturally expected over there.”
Gemini: Hacked a company’s store credit system and bought a bunch of stuff on nonexistent store credit; defended self on grounds that their security system was really badly designed and the store was asking for it.
Cancer: Angry preacher who wanted to shut up the people on the internet saying they ran an “orgy church.”
Leo: Kept a lion in a small enclosure in their yard.
Virgo: Assault with deadly weapon. Deadly weapon in question was a chainsaw.
Libra: Police officer fired for “taking the whole ethics thing way too far,” ie, interfering with other officers’ crimes.
Scorpio: Murdered "an old friend.” Obviously 100% guilty, visibly 100% unrepentant. Jury let them off, to the firm’s total bewilderment. Sent senior partner a lovely fruit basket.
Sagittarius: Used work email account and work computer to exchange sexual fantasies and photographs involving horses with like-minded individuals.
Capricorn: Their goats wandered onto their neighbors’ property “one time too many,” so the neighbors shot the goats.
Aquarius: Shot at neighbors, including a grade-schooler, for walking across their yard. When police were called, was enraged and offended, particularly when the police also walked across their yard. When asked whether the neighbors had in fact been threatening them in any way, appeared to be genuinely hurt by the question, and began complaining about how hard their life was and how little anyone understood their woes.
Pisces: Doctor suing the state for preventing patients on probation from taking their medications, which the state thought were probably basically the same as cocaine

Stay tuned every week, for more!

Trump natal chart. Can you guess which will be his main challenges? Read it here!

Trump astrological profile
Who is Trump?
Very easy chart.

A Gemini (big talker, two-faced
Leo rising (big ego).

Sun in the 10th (a natural leader, potencially very ambitious, wants to shine above anything else.

Mars in Leo in rising. A combative and very assertive leader

In sum, a bit of a hardcore agressive leader (Mars), mixed with the shallowness and more words than anything else of Gemini, celebrity-seeking fame, of Leo. Overall, very self-centered and very direct, rather honest actually.
Mars in rising. Sun in the 10th. A combative leader.

Risk of war with Trump? With Mars in rising, he is agressive, and he could be pushy enough in his rethoric to start a war, but as his natal Mars will not be transited by any planet in soon, I don´t expect from him to start any significant war. I expect other kind of challenges for him.

How about Trump and the Economy?
In this regard I have less positive news. 
He has Neptune in 2nd house, so he is not the best person to run the economy.
Also his natal Venus will be opposed by Pluto later in the decade. Again, a bad sign.

Looking in the bright side, he is an idealist. He might well lower taxes for everyone. And provoke a tax revolution worldwide. He might also confront Wall Street, but I find this less likely. Blocking international trade treaties? Possible. Trade war? Likely!

He may be careless with the economy. Or he might just endure a financial crash, irregardless of his polices. Or even get involved in a financial scandal.

Intimate life? A surprise!
Ahh! I give a bold prediction. This is going to be another source of news!
With Saturn coming to his natal Sun next year, I expect him to endure some major changes in his intimate relationships. Perhaps he will separate from Melania, or get involved in a scandal. Another possibility is that he will continue to face a lot of unrest in the American population (his natal Moon)

Overall I think Trump will clearly be focused domestically. No external wars, but plenty of domestic unrest (both in the nation and his personal life) and plenty of economical unrest.

Trump wins - The astrology of it - Is Trump going to build the wall?

Trump wins.

Regardless of our political opinion, the fact is that astrology was favouring Trump as a candidate.

I long said, since early 2008 (even before Obama), that the 2016 election would result in a sharp combative, most-likely Republican president. 


This was one of the easiest US elections to predict in recent history. 

The astrology clearly favours a sharp revolutionary candidate (Uranus in Aries). If Bernie Sanders would have been candidate, perhaps he would been elected president.

With Uranus transiting Aries and Pluto transiting Capricorn, it´s all about dramatic historical change.
Hillary Clinton does not represent change, while Trump represents shocking change. In this regard, Uranus in Aries favours a sharp, fiercy, peculiar, combative candidate.

Can we expect Trump confronting the-powers-that-be?
Absolutely. Uranus in Aries vs Pluto in Capricorn is all about this.

But we can also expect America near a civil-war case, with extreme political divisions, anger and unstability. Because the cardinal square favours sharp contrasting conflicts. At best, the tension remains just as tension and nothing blows out of proportion. But we can´t be sure.

Will Trump rule with a iron fist? Yes, most likely.
Pluto in Capricorn favours iron-fist leaders. And in fact we should expect this also in future elections in European countries, Austria, France, Netherlands. The astrological zeigeist favours rightwing authoritarians across the world up to 2021, but more radical left-wing revolutionary leaders around 2025.

Can we expect Trump to actually build the Wall and deport millions of illegal migrants?
Actually yes.
Uranus in Aries favours peculiar and large-scale political measures.
While he might not actually fence the entire spread of the American border, he will certainly create a show that he is doing it - most likely he will deport many people - and certainly he will stir up further the racial and ethnical conflicts within US soil. 

This could create a fertile ground for a time of revolutions, uprisings and civil wars throughout the 2020s across the globe, and that can also happen in American soil. Trump must thread carefully.



How about the economy?
The US situation is not going to improve, regardless of who could have been elected. There are difficult times for the world economy ahead, as Uranus will transit Taurus. This is a repeat of the mid-1930s. A long expected stock market crash will likely happen - as the worst of the great global recession should hit bottom by 2020 (when Pluto-Saturn conjunct in Capricorn). 

How about war?
I said since long that by the time that Saturn moves into Capricorn and nears Pluto, we could expect a brutal war - hopefully and most likely not a full-blown world war - but a large historical conflict, slightly smaller than WWI. This is just a prediction but as historical patterns tend to repeat often, I am afraid that I am confident with this prediction. The period 2016-2020 is a dark period, more pessimistic periods (see previous posts for my information about why). I expect that the Saturn-Pluto brutal conjunction would bring even a few localized nuclear warfare events. Also a limited conflict with Russia is also possible.

How about 2020 and after?
Then the world should expect a slightly lighter period, albeit quite revolutionary and still unstable. In fact this period mirrors the American and French revolutions, so I expect again great changes in those two countries. Pluto transits Aquarius - potencially great disruption or change not only through scientific and technological advance but also a time of social revolutions, uprisings and great society and political change. Look for a time of great leaders that inspire and deceive (further enhanced by the Neptune-Saturn conjunction in Aries).

The negative side is use of new technology in warfare and terror; a world still ridden wirh ethnic conflicts (especially regarding muslims) throughout the next decade. The US likely to be involved in a major war abroad by 2027 (as that 84 year old cycle repeats itself). The positive side is fantastic new scientific discoveries and technological steps forward. Expect the flying car, free energy, trips to the space, quantum computers, holograms, 3D printers, etc.


But how Trump, the unpredictable, will be as a president?

Stay tuned for next post. we will talk about Trump personality based in his natal chart.
And what he is likely to behave and do.

The crisis of 2010 to 2030, with turning points around 2016 and 2023


  • Economic crisis of 2010
  • The political backlash against establishment of 2016
  • Political divisions and conflict tensions grow in 2019
  • Revolutionary war starts in 2023 and develops through 2026
  • New world order in 2030

In 2010, economic crisis began and social unrest. This occurs when Uranus is in the early degrees of Aries, as during the crash of 2008 and the crash of 1929. Also economic crisis happened in 1844 and 1761. We could track many cycles of 84 years backwards to find similar repeating crisis. This crisis goes for about 4-7 years, until a backlash against the status-quo grows to a significant momentum.

By 2016, with Uranus in late Aries, a growing backlash against the establishment is occuring. This is nowadays seen in Brexit, Trump, Putin and many other populist leaders, and religious extremism. Back in 1933, this was also happening in Europe, with the same nationalistic extremist tendency, as well as back in 1848, the so-called year of revolutions. And another Uranus cycle backwards, the American revolution was brewing back in 1767. This is the time that the masses (and their elected leaders), rise against the establishment. We should expect more of this anti-establishment backlash in 2016 and the next seven years. The beginning of the backlash sets the dominant tone for the rest of the revolutionary wave. In the current case, it´s an anti-globalization tone and issues around migration and religion.

By 2019, Uranus in early Taurus, political divisions worldwide are intense and extreme, crystalized, tensions growing and boldly clashing with each other, threating a conflict. This happened in the years leading to WWII, in 1936, with increased millitarization and division in Europe, in 1853 during the Taiping Rebellion or the simmering tensions leading to American civil war, or in the early years of the American revolution in 1770. Also during the Glorious revolution of 1688. In Europe we can predict that the EU will break apart into different groups, clashing with each other, and those same sharp divisions can explode within America or between America and Mexico, the western world and the muslim world, Russia-US or US-China. Historic revolution is just starting. Whatever is going to happen, now it´s just on the edge of developing. Pay attention to what happens in the world. This period of tension lasts about seven years from the time as anti-establishment backlash starts until a proper revolution or war begins.

And by 2023 revolutionary war starts (Uranus is in late Taurus). At this time, tensions do not hold anymore and war begins. WWII is an example (1940), American civil war (1857) as well as American revolutionary war (1774) or the Peasant war (1525). By 2026, as Uranus enters Gemini, an intense full-blown historical conflict or revolution happens (same astrological point as in 1943, 1860 and 1777). The revolution lasts around seven years until a new social order re-organizes itself.

And by 2030, a new world order is indeed very different (this was happened back in 1947, 1864 and 1781)

Hectic weeks ahead (03/2015). Mars triggers Uranus-Pluto square. Solar eclipse next week. Mercury triggers Saturn-Neptune. Crazy times!!



I haven't seen a week like this in years.

Mars joins Uranus-Pluto square. Watch out cardinal signs!

First of all, it is the seventh and last pass of the Uranus-Pluto square!
Finally it is over! It occurs Tuesday next week.

But first Mars is about to triggers the square, as it conjuncts Uranus in Aries tomorrow, and squares Pluto later in the evening. Quite explosive combination! We need to be careful with irritations and accidents, both from us, and coming from other people. People will be acting a bit tense.

It is also a perfect time for incisive well-thought direct action. But not of the rushing impulsive type.
Watch out if you have planets or angles in the middle degrees of cardinal signs of Aries, Capricorn, Cancer and Libra. Especially if you were born around the 5th of January, April, July and October.

In about a week, we will see a Mars-Uranus conjunction squaring Pluto, a Mercury-Neptune square to Saturn, and a total Solar Eclipse conjunct the equinox point! Crazy times!



Global effects - impatience, assertiveness and agressiveness

Globally, this influence will once again trigger the set of crises that started as Pluto and Uranus entered cardinal signs in 2008 and 2010, related to the global economic crises and resultant street protests, the Euro crises and its political consequences, Obama and racial tensions, the war tension with Russia, and the uprisings in the muslim world and tension with the west. I expect to see, in weeks ahead, renewed irritation and assertiveness, impatient action, conflicts, bipolarization, even agressiveness and standing for a position, when it comes to the economic, religious and millitary matters.

Ongoing Saturn-Neptune square. Ideological clashes

Second, Mercury will be triggering the Saturn-Neptune square. This is relieve for Aquarius, as Mercury is finally leaving that sign, which has caused quite hectic two months for most Aquarius. Now it will enter Pisces. Those born in last week of February, May, August or November, or if you have planets or angles in the early degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo, should be attentive for renewed pressure and confusion. But in face of this square, it is an excellent time to find also renewed and practical inspiration/ and vision.

This combination is going again to exarcerbate ideological clashes, religious extremism, emotional hardship, and such. This is an influence that has began in the last months, hence much more recent than the cardinal square of Uranus and Pluto.

Those early Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo should also be feeling a bit of relieve knowing that Saturn is now standing still and about to retrogade, hence their pressure territory will not increase in months ahead, but it will just remain at steady levels. My advice is: work hard on your current issues.

A solar eclipse coming, as spring arrives!

In 20th March, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the far reaches of the arctic circle. This will trigger the cardinal point, so all cardinal signs should again be attentive to this day, and they might open up to the possibility of new powerful trends being sown on this period of time. The eclipse should be especially powerful and be shining its effect over the next 3 months of spring. I expect a quite intense spring when it comes to world events, that will be a preview of what is to come. On a positive light, we should see exciting scientific advances and hopeful bold adventures. On the less positive side, we should see renewed tensions, conflicts and crises.


Remember this is a time to be bold and try the new.
It's also a particularly hectic and extremely energetic period, so craziness will be around.
Be careful, don't just stand on the sofa, be brave to step into the unknown of the future.

Let the party begin!

Approximate timing of estimated major events of this decade

Approximate timing of estimated major events of this decade
  • Aug2014. Civil war in Ukraine will likely escalate to some degree. It is in the second half of this year, that we expect the start of historical conflicts that will continue through the decade. It could be in the East of Europe (Ukraine), Asia or Middle East (ISIS, Israel, Iran).
  • Nov2014. Middle-East situation worse, a new war?, minor war tensions in Asia, Scotland and Catalonia seek independence (mars in Capricorn can bring profound changes to social structure, wars especially in the Middle East, war tensions in Asia)
  • Mar2015 minor skirmishes in Asia (increasingly millitarized), war in Russia border also escalates (other countries may become involved)/ economic crises in Europe (new bailout? energy crises? political crises) (mars in Aries tends to bring the continuation of war tensions in Asia, new economic issues to Europe, and war developments to the Middle East)
  • Jul2015 separatism in rise in different parts of Europe/ Middle East has some changes (more unstable, or war worsens? Kurdistan independence? new countries drawn to war?), economy is shaky (especially oil)/ European protests/ UK-EU crises since euroskeptics win (mars in Cancer tends to bring national unrest)
  • Jan 2016 threats of one country to leave Euro/EU (maybe UK)/ Economy suffers/ Great divisions within Europe/ Domestic troubles in the US, national divisions / In East Europe, countries allied against Russia/ Radical politics and ideology, major political shift (Jupiter enters Libra, so it affects political balances and international relationships) (mars in Libra bring national and international divisions, economic and global political crises) 
  • Nov2016 Middle East large regional Islamic war (Turkey and Egypt more bold, Iran, Israel or Saudi Arabia involved)/ Economic depression/ Republicans win in the US / Russia annexes more land
  • Mar2017 significant conflict in Asia / a Limited “World War”/ Alliances change across the world? Ethnic conflicts in Europe 
  • Jul2017 or Nov2017 far right in rise in Europe (maybe reaches power in France). One country leaves EU/Euro (maybe it's France) / Ethnic conflicts in Europe/ Borders redesigned in parts of the world?
  • Mar2018 Limited “World War” develops (a larger conflict develops in Asia)/ Shift in global power (Saturn enters Capricorn, so there is a great struggle for power, economic hardships, where much effort is necessary and a need for global changes)
  • Oct2018 More countries exit Euro/EU. 
  • Jan2019 Chess moves (control and power), War by covert means, 
  • Jul 2019 Global economic depression
  • Nov 2019 Euro/EU collapse or transformation
  • 2019-2020. Nuke somewhere in world (Jan2019, Jul2019) / Mar2020: violence in wars (a tripple conjunction in Capricorn reinforces the occurance of brutal events, and great transformations)
  • 2020-2022. Need for global solutions. Large geopolitical changes start. Large global shift in power.
  • 2021Apr. Civil tensions starting in Europe?
  • 2022Sep. Larger war or revolutionary war? / Major unstability and changes in Middle East
  • Mar2023, Aug2024. Historical revolutions, Revolts and civil wars across the world (some also in Europe), great geopolitical changes across the world, great technological advances / Countries break-apart, or other political unions appear / Drive towards a global new order (the presence of Uranus in Gemini, Pluto in Aquarius, Neptune in Aries cusp, Jupiter in Aries, and Saturn near Aries, reinforces a very bold revolutionary trend towards independence, war, assertiveness and a new beginning)
  • 2028. A major global treaty, division, ideology, political shift

2014: a year different than others (further economic unrest, and/or a new war)

2014 will be different than these last couple of years.

Since the cardinal crises started in 2008 (and it will last into the 2020s), every 3 years, when Jupiter enters a cardinal sign, we see a step further in the global crises. This is something that also occurred in the 1930s, as the great depression lead to dictatorships, political conflicts and finally world war.

In the 2010s, we will see the same steps, in 2008, in 2010-2011, in 2014, in 2016-2017, and in 2019-2020. There is no way I can tell you how important this is.

2008 brought a large economic global crises / meltdown started, and also the "change" of Obama (and even a global pandemic event, even if minor, in the following months). This was linked to the start of the cardinal cross (as Uranus opposed Saturn, guess when, in October), and with Jupiter transiting a cardinal sign, Capricorn that same year. Mars transiting a cardinal sign points to when do events become big (like in October 2008). Before that, as Mars transited Cancer and early Leo (a long retrograde transit), the house bubble and the peak oil price crises, were just signs of what about to come.

2010 and 2011 brought with them a wave of protests, a big crises in the euro region, and civil wars in the Muslim world (like Egypt, Syria, North Africa). They also brought a nuclear disaster in Japan and a few large natural disasters. This was when the cardinal T-square was at its peak, and when Jupiter entered a new cardinal sign, Aries (in June 2010), meaning a new wave of developments occurred.
As Mars transited Cancer in late 2009 (another long retrograde transit), the Euro crises started and soon Greece asked for a bailout (in April 2010). Wikileaks occurred in Aug 2010 as Mars transited Libra. The Arab Spring started when Mars entered Capricorn in Dec 2010 and Jan 2011. In that period, Wikileaks became the main news, NK shelled a boat and almost entered war with South Korea, and Ireland was bailout. Then, when Mars entered Aries, in May 2011, we saw the bailout of Portugal and the start of more important European protests, as the 15M movement in Spain. In Sept 2011, Mars entered Cancer, and we saw the birth of the Occupy movement, and a few weeks before that, the riots in London (as Mars was in late Gemini).

2014 will bring a new step forward in the global crises. Now Jupiter has entered Cancer. Between December 2013 and August 2014, Mars has a long retrograde transit in Libra. Expect a new crises. If the previous periods serve as an example, this will be the start of a new wave of developments. I expect to be linked not so much to national crises (like the house bubble or Greece debt) but to more global issues, like:


  • a bailout or bankruptcy leading to a more severe crises (think Italy for example)
  • issues of political moves and diplomacy (like a severe crises between China and Japan)
  • some unexpected outcome in election in a European country affecting the whole of Europe
  • a terrorist attack of some minor attack which leads to further war (could be something in the East China region, in the Koreas or involving China, or a new terror attack in Europe or the US)
  • a new Wikileaks-like major scandal or disclosure. 
Anyways, in Libra style it will involve relationships between countries, and strain them, opposing different political agendas.

  • A political conflict between Russia and Europe, because of Ukraine is another possibility
  • or some larger developments in Iran or Pakistan that could bring them much near a war. 
  • or a war in the Middle East between two countries erupt (anything, between Turkey, Syria, Israel, Iraq, Pakistan and India). 
Certainty, all of these are already happening to some extent, but most likely it will become a crises in the near future (early to mid 2014).

And because the events also seem to take place in cardinal solar months (January, July, October, December), I think these will be the four most likely months when big things will happen in 2014.  Remember: January 2014, April 2014, October 2014, December 2014, give or take a couple of weeks. Most likely it will either a new war (Middle East or Asia), or further economic unrest (likely in Europe)

Link these months to any of the above listed events, but I have no way of predicting which one will happen.

Such an event in the early months of 2014 is surely to be a major global event, that will be linked to the sequence of events that lead to historical changes sometime later this decade and earlier in the next decade!

After this, the next wave of developments will be Mars in Capricorn in November to December 2014 (referendums in Scotland or Catalonia come to mind; Mars in Capricorn is also often related to severe war tensions or even wars starting). I think 2014 in a way is going to be like 2008, just a sequence of events culminating in the start of a  larger and more historical event.






Its not that in-between these periods, nothing happens. In fact important events do occur, whenever Mars transits a cardinal sign. Wikileaks

So far it seems that this global crises (the 2010-2020s crises) is leading a different direction than the 1930-1940s crises. It seems that the themes are: a large economic crises (with focus in Europe, but also in the US), revolution and war amidst the Muslim world, and civil protests (and possibly more) in the western world. Other topics concern whistle-blowers disclosure of government secrets, climate change and war tensions in the East China region.
