What will happen in 2012! Predictions for a large revolt in July, large war in November, and more

To put it very simple, it is in 2012 that the first big events start, that will become much more intense by late 2013 and 2014, and develop over the rest of the decade.

2012 is the definitive end of the world as we know it, not by disasters but by a decaying world order, and that "end of the world" continues afterwards. It will be a bolt year, and exciting, with plenty of events happening, shocking and creating revolution around the world.

I am not sure yet if the two big events I predict will start in 2012 or 2013 - they will be happening in 2013 - but we will see the very beginnings of them, in July 2012 and November 2012.

Revolt, large social unrest event in July 2012
2012 will include probably the first full blown REVOLT and dramatic social unrest in a FIRST WORLD COUNTRY. This is likely to happen most in late June, July or August, when Mars transits Libra and Jupiter enters Gemini. This large event could even be a revolution or near civil war. It will be the first event happening outside of the developing world, and in a developed country. It will be most likely in Europe (my first guess goes for Italy or Greece) but it could happen in another major power. Second most likely possibilities include Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and India; and less likely in China, Germany, Canada, France, Israel, US and UK. At least there should be one large social unrest event in one developed countries making headlines for days. Something like a May 68 or similar to the events of 89. If the event is not happening in July 2012, then watch definitively for December 2012 and the spring of 2013. You may be interested in reading a detailed post here. More energetic dates occur in June 22th, July 1st, July 10th and much more around July 17th.

Large war in November 2012
I also expect 2012 to have a more significant WAR, most likely Iran (but could be also in Pakistan or the Koreas, or even a ex-Soviet country). I expect this to most likely happen by late November and December 2012, when Mars transits Capricorn. If it starts earlier, then it might start around July, when Mars transits Libra. It will likely involve the US, and somewhat Russia, Germany and the UK (because its natal chart shows dramatic challenges). And even if the war occurs in a single country, there will be surely unrest in Iran, India, Pakistan and Korea making headlines (because all these countries have their natal charts affected). Most likely this event will damage further the global economy. If it's Iran it will seriously affect oil trade, triggering another major economic meltdown. More energetic dates include November 17th and November 23-29th.

Economy meltdown
It will become worse, that's the most certain thing to predict. If the Euro will crash, I think at least we will see the first events that lead to a large unrest and depression by 2014. There is a growing recession in 2012 and it only becomes worse in 2013. So it is very likely that either one country exits the Euro or becomes bankrupt. I still don't know if the currencies will hold, but there is a huge effort by the ones in the power to control this process. But by July the masses, the populations will begin to seriously challenge this control, clashing in revolts and protests. This world "crash" will never be sudden, it will be more a series of small crashes, one after the other. As we are experiencing now. And its worse point is somewhere around 2016 to 2019.

As September ends...
There is another significant highly charged period, when Mercury and a Full Moon oppose Uranus and square Pluto in late September 21-29th. It could be nothing, or it could be related to one of the other events (my guess goes for general unrest and economy affected). Tension will be in the air.

Most affected countries
I expect one of the following COUNTRIES to make bigger headlines: Italy, Turkey, India and China. Also there might be growing unrest in Russia, Ukraine, Japan, Canada, Ecuador and Spain. More likely towards 2013 in UK, US, Australia, Germany and Israel. Look for more details here.

Solar storms in April-May or November-December
If some SOLAR STORM happens, they will be most likely occur by 16-21 Apr 2012 or 13-18 May 2012, 21-26 Nov 2012 or 18-23 Dec 2012 (see my post here). At least one of these it will be strong enough to be seen from mid latitudes, the largest so far since several years. But I don't want to be much importance to this prediction, as it's the first time I try to predict solar storms. However, we do see the possible cycle of solar storms hitting key dates of 2012, around April and late November.

Natural disaster events
There is another period I haven't spoke about: late March 2012 to early April 2012 (around 25 March to 15 April, but also around 10th March). This is due to cardinal energy (Sun in Aries) and Mars opposing Neptune. It could be something. Most probably something negative and destructive, if it happens. I am still unsure about it, so I also don't wish to give much importance to what may happen around this period.

Big individuals
As usual also with Uranus in Aries I expect historical leaders to arise now. For the best and the worse. And also inspiring revolutionary individuals. Both in politics, religion and science. People will be much more bolt and daring in the next years!

Big inventions, discoveries
Finally, 2012 will have also its share of historical scientific and technological advances. This is typical of Uranus in Aries. I expect most of them to come from huge discoveries in Physics, also discoveries relating to our place in the Universe (maybe something like extrasolar planets), possibly something else about our DNA, and big advances in energy and transportation.

Dates of more energy in 2012:
1) March 10, and March 25 to April 15
2) June 22, July 3, July 10, July 14-18, and possibly August
3) September 21-29
4) November 17, November 23-29, and December


Reviewing my 2011 predictions: I got 57% of predicted dates with something big happening

The most important events of 2011 were: February (Arab Spring revolutions), March 11 (Japan earthquake and tsunami, with nuclear disaster in following week), March 19 (start of Libyan war), UK riots (6-10 August), and along the entire year the Euro crises, Occupy protests and the Syrian civil war.

My predictions for 2011 (you can read them here) had the most key dates around 10 and 18-21 March (it was the Japanese disaster and Libya war), 2-4 and 18-22 April (nothing happened), 17-21 Jun (nothing happened), 3-11 August (the UK riots), 24-26 September (nothing happened). An overall 57% of the predicted dates had some historical event happening.

In March, I was right about the dates around 10th and 18-21st, when the Japanese disaster happened. I even said " At least, we will see some DISRUPTIONS for large groups of people".

I predicted a major war in April, when indeed the Libya war started in late March, so it was a good hit. I said "March is the start of agressive energies" and "April continues the same mood, agressive, dynamic. This could feature the most likely start of a major CONFLICT"

I also made a bolt prediction that "July might well be the PROTEST/RIOT month", I was close to a perfect hit, but early August was the month of the dramaric UK riots. Anyway, there were plenty of social unrest along the year, as I have been predicting for several years.

But I want to be honest and if you read my post on the predictions for 2011, we will see also some failed predictions. Obviously it is impossible to get 100% correct predictions!

I will post the 2012 predictions later today.

Moon transiting ASC and irritation / depression

This is one I am trying to grasp why.

I have a Capricorn 12th house and Aquarius 1st house.
Most of the times I have irritation (and usually I am a calm person) is when the Moon is transiting my first house, and also on those months when Mars or the Sun transits the first house (havign Aquarius rising, this occurs in February).

Since 2000, I have had irritation nearly every time Mars transited my first house (Jan 2000, Dec 2001, Aug 2003, May 2005, Apr 2007, Apr 2009 and Feb 2011.
Several irritation days have also occurred as the Sun transited my first house in Feb 2004, Feb 2006, Feb 2008, Feb 2009 and Feb 2011. This is about half of the February months!

Often, it has also resulted in clashes and conflicts, even break-ups, and in a few lucky ocasions, in impulsiveness to take decisive steps forward in my life.

Then, it is interesting to state that my only big depression on my life, when I was 18, was as Uranus entered my first house (but Saturn was also entering the fourth house at that time).

Finally, the Moon transits. I had often seen that depression tended to come when the Moon transited Aquarius and Pisces, at my first house. This year, I noted I have irritation and even depression in several ocasions when the Moon transited the first house (2 Feb, 27 Feb, obviously the February month, but there were also many other irritation days on that month, 20 May, a major irritation on 21 Jun which resulted on a big step forward in my job, 14 Jul a depression, 1 Dec depression, 24 Dec, 28 Dec).

Curiously I noted that these difficult Moon days tend to occur as the Sun transited angles, as in February (after crossing the ASC), May (in fourth house), July (just before crossing the DSC) and December (after crossing MC). Besides the first house, they also tend to occur when the Moon transits other water houses or the sixth house, on those months.

Now that I got the pattern, I ask why? Sometimes it is good because it triggers me to take decisise steps, but often this extra energy is trouble. What do I do with it? How? Why does it happen? There is no point in being able to predict when it is going to happen, if I cannot learn how to best deal with it!

I guess this is a question of duality, of life itself and why the Universe was created. In fact, God, the Creator not only created the Universe to manifest and experience itself, but it also created duality, a big illusion, so that every soul can experience one thing as opposed to another (good versus bad, warm versus cold...).

Do we have free will? Certainly there is a fate when the Moon transits angles it triggers a burst of energy, where we feel impulsive, depressed, irritated, more prone to take decisise steps forward. So, the energy is there. There is no hidding, there is nothing else we can do to bury it; I should not avoid being energetic when the Moon transits my 1st house, that's just the way it is. The key is deciding how to use that extra energy in the best light - that is my free-will. Or at least it seems. I believe than when we transcend duality, we transcend this problem of knowing how to behave in those days; there is no struggle, no duality.

But i assume the purpose of the Universe, the Creator, is to have experiencing one thing as opposed to another: creative and individualistic and impulsive energy (first house) as opposed to the interconnected peaceful but potentially lazy and melancholy energy of the twelfth house. And so on, at every angle.

Uranus entry to Aries (analysis of its ingress) and how it will be the next 84 years!

I did a chart for the last time Uranus ingressed in Aries, in the end of March of 1927, to see how it set the trend for the rest of the Uranus transit in Aries, Taurus and Gemini, and actually for the next 84 years.

From 1927 to 2010

Interestingly, we have a chart with a 15º Libra Ascendant, but with Sun opposite in Aries (meaning probably war between nations - its the seventh house). But Libra also featured the formation and breaking of alliances and the diplomacy efforts that marked most of the second World War and the following 45 years of Cold War, the United Nations and European Union. Uranus features close to conjunction with the Moon in sixth house, meaning a practical crises (but probably also the high degree of invention that followed the world war), that crises which exploded as Uranus, Saturn and Pluto transited the angles of this chart in the mid 1930s. Pluto near the MC meant the powerful leaders of the 20th century, especially during the thirties: Hitler, Stalin and then the Plutocracies that followed: a globalized world with powerful elites ruling, hidden behind the scenes. This is a clear manifestation of governments symbolized by Pluto. Mars in 9th house (as well as the Moon in Pisces) meant that ideology and the fight for freedom would rule the rest of the 20th century, as it did. It also means a path behind limits, with space exploration, scientific advances and a globalized world. Neptune in 11th, it means once again a globalized world, and the idealization of science, freedom, democracy and an united world. Venus in 8th house I think it is related to the wealth being in the hand of multinational corporations in the 20th century.

And once again, as outer planets began transiting these angles, we have another world crises and it's time to make a chart for the next 84 years.

From 2010 to 2094!

The ingress of Uranus in late May 2010, features now a Full Moon, Moon in Sagittarius and Sun in Gemini. This seems like the rest of 21st century with the quest for knowledge and communication, and the global village, as a main theme. I expect much more! Not only the internet, but space travel, alien contact, and spiritual advances in knowledge. On a negative note, the Moon in Sagittarius may mean a bit of religious extremism over the next decade and the rest of the century.

Uranus in 11th house and Neptune in 10th, means something entirely different! Neptune in 1oth means governments suffering a great dissolution, or even coalescing into a single entity (Neptune means unity after all). This is the end of the Plutocracies and hidden powers that be from the 20th century. It also means religious or high ideals ruling the world. Uranus in 11th means a revolutionary strike, and being your own. I think over the 21st century, the ideals will tend to be much more down to the individual rather than the masses. They will be unique for each person. I also suspect that the next decade will have a lot of uprisings and revolutions, and governments disappearing. Until a new world order. And because the ASC is around 10º Gemini, this means that those revolutions might occur during the 2020s.

Mercury over the 12th means a bit of introspective in the 21st century in relation to the 20th century. Sun in 1st house means a wholy new direction for mankind, almost a new identity, and it's related to knowledge. Mars in 3rd house means travel and communication again as high themes (even very fast travel!), and Venus in 2nd house might mean that eventually, sooner or later, some financial and material peace will be achieved. But the presence of Mars and Saturn near the fourth house, means that there will be a great huge challenge in individual nations, a great deal of reform and unrest, and this might come over the form of wars, civil conflicts, even countries disappearing and dealing with outstanding problems (such happened recently with Japan and Greece).

Any additional comment?

Predicting next 3 months of our lives, based on ingresses

Every solstice and equinoxes, we have a preview how it will be the next 3 months (or 12 months in case of the spring echinox). What happens during those days, what kind of projected goals and emotions, determines a little bit the general mood and atmosphere of the following trimester.

So, one can cast a chart showing our transits at the moment of the solstice/echinox for further detail. Obviously, the outer planets transits define ongoing affairs and challenges, but what is more interesting is that the location in house of the transiting Moon, Mars (and to a less degree of Venus and Mercury) help defining a big part of what it will be the next 3 months!

For example, if I have a Moon transiting my sixth house, I can expect a lot of work demands over the next 3 months, and if I have Mars transiting over my Ascendant, I can expect a sort of personal crises related to the direction of my living and self identity.

I was looking at the ingresses I had over the last 11 years, and all of them made terrible sense. It kind of defines the general atmosphere and themes for the next 3 months. And the March echinox even defines the general picture of the rest of the year!

So, go look of what transits you were having over the last solstice, in 22th December, 5:00 UTC.

How will the current world crises develop, year by year, until 2020

Today I was calculating in detail when is this period of crises going to bottom down.
The answer is between 2017 and 2020.


There is a deepening of this crises between 2012 (or 2013) and 2016.
The very beginning of this next stage of the crises seems to be around June 2012 but more clearly as as 2013 goes by.
It seems to develop gradually but much more intense after November 2013 and March 2014.
It will be a difficult time for most western nations around 2014 and 2015.

The natal Sun, Moon or Angles of many nations will be affected by the powerful square of Uranus in mid Aries and Pluto in mid Capricorn. Just like it happened during the thirties.

- - - -

Then, comes 2017 and the drama seems to hit the most destructive and transformation phase. This occurs until the very end of the decade. Between September 2019 and March 2020, there seems to be an event which has massive consequences and changes much.

The intensity of these events is first similar to the scale of the Great Depression but then progresses closer to near world war (but apparently never becoming as dramatic as WWII).

These events will likely be related to economic meltdown, widespread social unrest, wars, and possibility of violent uprisings and civil conflicts.

- - - -

At the moment we speculate two scenarios. One is that the Euro debt crises continues and triggers a second and much complicate global meltdown. Somehow the core of Europe and US will be affected by 2014. This causes possibly popular revolts and even civil conflicts by 2016, and progressing into something major by 2019 (much chaos involved).

The other scenario is that a war happens in Iran, but creates a situation out of control, related to widespread war, oil crises, involvement with Russia, possibly even with the use of nukes. The situation becomes a messy drama by 2014, and might reach the worse by 2019; it could even be close to a full scale world war in the late part of the decade.

There is also the change of less likely scenario of other unpredictable events; I think single acts by people that cause great social consequences, use of unforeseen weapons or technology, beginning of movements of mass prosecution and genocide, charismatic leaders causing mass protests... All this dense stuff can happen as often does during transits of Uranus in Aries

After the event around 2019, recovery and hope seems to develop again. By 2025 the collective mood will probably be positive, similar to the scale of globalization and technological advance of the nineties. However, there might still be social revolutions, uprisings and wars, going on, but in a way, things will be going into a constructive direction, with a new world order.

Strangely, there is a cycle relating to American Revolution and Civil War that seems to occur again in 2028, I think this might be the dissolution of the current union of the United States, and maybe even Europe, to form something new.



These predictions are related to the amount of waxing and waning cycles of outer planets. In the nineties, many cycles were waxing and so there was a global wave of positiveness, expansion, globalization and easiness. This reached maximum in a period between June 2000 and June 2001. At that time, Saturn was opposing Pluto, changing completely the balance of power, just as the terrorist attacks of 911 were about to happen.

After 2001, many cycles gradually turn negative. Jupiter also opposed Pluto in 2001, opposed Neptune in 2003, opposed Uranus in 2004, and Saturn opposed Neptune in 2006. This was mostly during Bush years, where optimism (Jupiter) was being lost. However, Jupiter started to make waxing cycles in 2007, so optimism developed again.

Comes 2008, and Saturn opposed Uranus, and a global meltdown happened, just as Saturn was also making a waning square to Pluto, and Uranus making a waxing square to Pluto, making a difficult T-square, but not as destructive as during the Great Depression (because of one waxing square).

Currently, as we have Jupiter opposing Saturn, hence the start a new wave of developing pessimism and loss of hope (this is the first of several Jupiter waning cycles over the next years). More important is the fact that now Saturn is on waning cycle to all outer planets, meaning a full destruction of social structures from now onwards. I can expect a worsening of the crises that started in 2008.

- - - -

In late 2013, Jupiter opposes Pluto, it opposes Neptune in mid 2015, and Uranus in mid 2017. We will have then all cycles in waning mode (pessimism, destruction) except those of Neptune/Pluto, Uranus/Pluto, and Uranus/Neptune. This is very important to reflect upon. It is here when the maximum destruction will happen but not as catastrophic as we might fear.

During the WWII; every cycle was negative except Neptune/Pluto - the industrialization of society and idealism in governments. In fact, capitalism and industrialism was probably we only thing that survived after the war. Everything else was seemingly destroyed. Like social structures, governments, alliance between nations, jobs and entire families.

However in 2017-2020, the same destruction will happen, but with two cycles less.
In the sixties Uranus/Pluto started a new revolutionary trend of libertarian values and minorities. And in the nineties a new Uranus/Neptune cycle which relates to mass technologies and communications (the internet, personal computers and mobile phones).

I predict that, in the near future, everything in society will be destroyed except our technological world, libertarian values and industrial capitalist model, and the idea of a need for a globalized world. At least, Google will be saved (lol).

This also makes me see that essentially a third World War cannot happen, because the degree of destruction must astrologically be smaller than during WWII. No full scale nuclear war can happen, but a small regional regional war might. Also a conventional world war can happen, but on a smaller scale than WWII.

Alternatively, we could expect a wave of social uprisings that increase to a widespread series of civil wars, kind of a world on civil wars. It could be between governments and the masses, religions, or political backgrounds.

I am not sure about what scenario will play out.

Whatever happens it will be one of the biggest catalyst to bring forward a new global order, and a wave of social revolutions. The shifting point happens in 2020, and last for about 10 years after.

In 2020, a series of conjunctions will start, first Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto, then in 2025 Saturn/Neptune and Saturn/Uranus in 2030. This seems to be a new balance of power and governments in 2020*, a new idealism and hopes in 2025**, and a new economical model and world order that grows and expands after 2030***.


* Saturn/Pluto conjunctions have occurred before in 1948, 1980, next in 2020, during periods of conflict and tension, and have related to shifts in power balances around the world. This will surely happen during and after the event in 2020, and will relate to countries like US, Europe, China, Russia, Israel and the Arab world.

** Saturn/Neptune conjunctions have occurred in 1918, 1953, 1990, next in 2025, and have brought a new optimism forward, also new idealism. Social revolutions can happen at this time too, as well as pandemics.

*** Saturn/Uranus conjunctions have occurred in 1940, 1990, next in 2030, periods after which a new world order is established. As it was after the sixties that the communism world start falling until the nineties, now we can speculate that some parts of the western world could start falling until a final end around 2030. Surely, this will be the start of a new globalized world as it was after the world war and after 1990.




By 2017, the waning cycles seem to predict a very difficult time, just like it happened at the beginning of WWII. By 2019-2020, there is a significant conjunction involving Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, in Capricorn.

What will happen in the next years (2012-2030). So much we can foresee ahead!

I think the next years will unfold as the following. The economic crises will continue to become worse and worse, whether it is by mistake after mistake of our stupid governants and bankers, or by subtle orchestration from hidden powers (the conspiracy theory) it does not matter.

The Occupy movements, the uprisings, revolts, and social unrest will continue, but what seems to be something big is still only the very beginning. Wait until a few years down the road!
The austerity measures will deepen the current recession into a new great depression, with huge numbers of unemployed and worse, social unrest. The whole debt mess is one without exit, like a cancer or like a drug addiction. It is a destructive pattern of debt and following bail outs which create new debt.

I think now that there is actually a hidden orchestration by the powers that be, behind the scenes. It cannot be a mere coincidence the prosecution and exploitation of south European countries, by pointing at their big debt and then demanding them to ask for external aid (which is debt and a loss of sovereignty). It looks to me that this is orchestrated to cause the collapse of economy in the whole planet, and bring about a new world order. But even if the conspiracy does not exist, the current situation is one without exit. Except if the whole thing crashes and restarts again with brand new rules.

2012 will see the continuation of the events of 2011: a mess within Europe and social unrest around the planet. The world is at the brink of many threats to its current old order. I don't know exactly what happens in 2012 but it something big will happen that will trigger the collapse of either the Euro or Dollar by 2013. It can be that Italy is bailed out, Spain or even England, France or Germany. Or maybe Israel attacks Iran and triggers a oil shock. Or even something else unexpected.

By 2013, the revolts against the system stop to be mere plays and become violent and widespread. A sense of the threat of military coups and civil war between classes (or ideologies) start to be present. This might well explode by 2014. Otherwise, assuming the Iran war scenario, the whole thing might also spiral out of control in 2013 or 2014, either by becoming a widespread war, or by crashing the global economy.

The years between 2014 and 2018 are very painful. Considering the astrological trends, this is the climax of the cardinal square, and the peak of a destructive trend caused by aspects between outer planets. In all likelihood there will be uprisings, civil wars, regional wars, economic depression.

It could be that this is not as dramatic as it looks like. The degree of drama is something that I cannot predict yet, but some historical drama will be involved, that seems sure.

By 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, there is a new trend. The world has suffered and perhaps people demand a new world order, or the powers that be impose one on people. Something like huge shifts in power will happen, and many things from the past will cease by then. Could be religions, ideologies, nations, monetary systems. Alternatively, if the constructive pattern doesn't catch, then there will be a climax of the uprisings and revolutions by now, growing in size until 2025, when they become full-blown, until they reach a resolution point by 2029. But, if the revolutions were already full-blown by 2014-2018, then this period will mark a lot of societal changes but without perhaps the violence of before. Either way, there will be dramatic changes in the world order, in nations, at this time (2020-2030). Expect also, a lot of civil conflict, this will be caused by the depression, with extreme ring wingers and left wingers against the government, and fight for power, and also, in the craze of the moment, probably between religious, political and ethnic groups. I see this likely in England, Italy and the US, for example.

By 2030, the world is very different, and there will be probably major blocks of power around the world and new borders between nations, in a way that will look strange for us. There will be major international treaties, new currencies, new systems, new technology.

Yes, I also forgot to point that during the dramatic period after 2014, there will be major leaders having a big impact, both from the government and from the masses, (like Hitler and Gandhi in the thirties), and there will be many new inventions and shocking technology coming out. Yes, expect that.

Also, the population will probably be quite reduced, and many will choose to move away from the chaos of the big cities and forming intentional and local communities and projects. This will be one of the positive paths towards the future, away from the mass fist of the powers that be. I am still unsure about how much the infrastructures will be destroyed and sustained through the future crises (e.g. transportation, internet, money system, governments, food chain). Expect at least some major degree of disruption, in gradual steps. It might be a full-blown disruption in many places in western nations, especially in large cities.

The London Riots and Uranus/Pluto square


I said July would be a month of riots (when Mars transited late Gemini - usually Mars in Gemini triggers uprisings during cardinal transits) and I wasn't very far with that prediction.



In fact it is now, as of early August, as Mars entered Cancer and triggered the cardinal square between Uranus/Pluto, that the riots are happening, and also that the stock markets have been crashing.

But this is only the beginning. The Uranus/Pluto square will last until 2015, and Uranus is still in early Aries.

As history shows, things become often more complicated when Uranus reaches about 10º Aries and after that, and that will happen from summer 2012 onwards. Right now Uranus has reached degree 8º of Aries, and started to form the square to Pluto, and this explains the sudden increase in violence, revolutions and rioting. From Tunisia to Egypt, Libya to Syria, Greece to London, and elsewhere.

I said, that with this configuration, the summer of 2011 (and possibly the spring and summer of 2012) would seem similar to that of 1968. Or even the revolutionary waves of 1989 or 1848, and that is what is happening.

What comes in next years?

We have currently a stock market crash, as a recovery seems to fail, and the economical crises now is spreading from Portugal and Greece, to Italy, Spain and France and even the US.

I have said that by 2014, the biggest world powers are going to be greatly affected by the cardinal crises. The Uranus/Pluto square is going to square many important points in the natal charts of many world powers, like the US, France, Germany, Italy, China and the UK. That has happened back in 1930-1935, when the Great Depression happened, Hitler rose to power, and the world was in the beginning stages of WWII.

Hopefully that will not happen again. But I think a second Great Depression is very likely to develop. The debt cannot be buried. If politicians close their eyes, the whole system is going to collapse sooner or later. Now it is the time so that they take drastic measures, like changing the whole system to a debt-free society, but that seems very unlikely and so that's why I say a second Great Depression will happen.

This will come with riots and social unrest like the ones happening in London. Or the terrible terrorist attack by the far right in Norway.

People are getting angry and turning to the extreme, something that happens often when Uranus transits Aries. Violence is a easy channel for a lot of this Aries energy, but it's not the wisest one. I worry that things might get out of control.

The next years, will be best spent away from the cities. The fact that there will be a long standing square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn is a very clear sign that there will be at least a great tension violence and long-lasting crises, and at worst a huge burst and bang around the world.

After economic violence, there is now social violence (Greece, Syria, London, Norway). And it will become another big problem. Both Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn often bring a very hard fist of power and violence.

I warned before about the issue of intolerance, class, racial and social conflicts. There is a lot brewing in many places (Middle East, Africa, US, Europe). People cannot let themselves intolerant of others, as they do often when Uranus in Aries. Last time, with Hitler and Stalin, millions of people died. The Jews were a scapegoat, people voted to far right and far left. There was no sense of balance. This would happen most when Uranus transits Libra (as it did in the sixties). Hopefully we have learn the lessons, but this square is going to bring the same test again. That's why I think this time the riots will not be like the sixties, they will be more like 1848 or like during the thirties, linked to economic crises and a lot of anger.

Let us just hope that there is no violence between nations. Even in nature, big events will happen, there is a lot of cosmic energy, and so this can result in large earthquakes, solar flares and fires. Things like the big volcano disruptions in 2010 and 2011, or the Chile and Japan earthquakes. It has been such two dramatic years, now you know what is like to feel this unique and powerful cardinal energy. It happens only every 84 years. But, no fear please. Aries should be without fear, should be courage and defining a new identity, a peaceful warrior. The best is to engage in a lot of constructive activity, new projects, maybe even grand projects. To learn about ourselves, to strike a new but positive path. That is the best channel for Uranus in Aries.

My personal tale of every house transit I have had...

I still eager to study the big picture behind the transits of outer planets through our natal charts. For that, we have to understand what each house specifically means, from a deeper point of view.

Angular, succedent and cadent houses

First it is important to divide the houses in angular, succedent and cadent. The angular houses is where issues are bring forward, issues of identity and our path, with important choices taken, and movement stirred in one direction. The succedent houses is where that movement is developed, things are manifested, we express ourselves, resources and skills are used. The cadent houses is where we realize that the direction we took has to adapt to the outer world, and so we work details and we prepare the realization that a new impulse will be taken in the next angular house.

A story along the 12 houses

The first house, points to a new beginning, discovering a new path. In the second, we manifest and develop the desires we stated under the first house, more in a practical way, this of course affects our work and how we make a living. In the third house, we confront that we must adapt to our surrounding neighborhood, we think about where we belong. In fourth house, we discover that the security we wish for, is inwards, those are our roots. In the fifth house, we impulsively express our inner being, we manifest and develop our emotions, needs and wishes, as a pursuit of pleasure and manifesting our inner fulfillment. This is again, a great impulse, similar to the first house. In sixth house, we may take the practical steps of that, but mostly we realize we will have to adapt to the world, and work in several practical details. Hence this house is one of much work, testing, perfection. We must work with and serve others. So, as in third house we think about where we belong, here we think about we relate to the outer world. In seventh house, there is an impulse to a new path with others, we relate and balance our path with the significant others. In eighth house, we develop and manifest activities with others, we use resources with others. This is the emotional realm, that relates to the interaction between us and the world. In the ninth, we adapt to the surrounding wider world, this might bring us new horizons and visions, new cultures, new purposes of living, this is also because we prepare to work about where we stand in the world, the next house. In tenth house, we have an impulse to determine where we stand in the world (that actually, was already began in the former fire house), our role in the world. In eleventh, we manifest and develop those impulses, we have our own resources and ideas in the social world, we develop and manifest our social role. We also work creatively with others in groups and causes (opposite to fifth house). In twelfth, we realize that there is a wider world out there, we must adapt to that "divine" and spiritual world. We serve the divine, the universal. We work in inner emotional details (opposite of sixth house). We close the cycle, without the angular impulses, and we prepare for the next angular house, of a new beginning.

My Jupiter transits tale

My personal story of Jupiter transiting through each house starts in 1997 when Jupiter entered my first house; that year, I began to pursuit some serious interest in natural sciences, that lead me to my future career. Much study happened as Jupiter transited my second house, and as Jupiter transited my third house, I moved to another city and had to adapt to life there, this was my entry in University. Then, I settle down in a new house there, as Jupiter transited my fourth house, my first achievement of personal independence. This was a new angular impulse! I also opened up to spiritual ideas (since I was looking for inner security), I became a sort of different person. As Jupiter transited the fifth, I became more expressive, social and engaging in many activities (after the insights of the fourth house transit), and one year later, as Jupiter transited the sixth, I went abroad for first time, once again I was adapting to a new reality. This was happening by the time Jupiter entered my seventh house. I was reaching out to the wider world! That year, I started my first job, got my first girlfriend and my best friends. At the eighth house transit, I developed more these themes, I started a PhD (received a scholarship - shared resources), did theater (intensity and depth of relationships), and experimented with the esoteric and astrology. As Jupiter moved to ninth house, I once again, found myself in a new environment, this time living second time abroad but now on work and not on study. I traveled extensively and discovered ecological living as my new passion and purpose. When Jupiter transited the tenth, a cardinal house, something funny happened. I actually tried to quit my job (because I was unhappy with it, but after talking with my boss, I decided to move my project abroad again). This happened as Jupiter transited the eleventh house. At this time, I met my current partner (a compromise = tenth house), and developed the cause of ecological living (11th house). I spend the days of the 12th house, living with my partner together for first time, enjoying walks on the nature, and meditation, a low social life, and thinking of how to end my ongoing career and starting a new one. Bang! Comes first house, and I actually found new interested and just as Jupiter started the second house transit, I went abroad after quitting my job. Life suddenly become light again! I did not gained any money but rather enjoyed learning new professional skills (2nd house). Now, as Jupiter transits 3rd house and about to enter the fourth, we went living together in an ecovillage abroad, we are learning much, and adapting to this new social life. We also decided to settle down here since they offered us a new home here (4th house theme). Recently, I have been having some new inner insights, like learning to live in the present moment, I guess this will be part of my 4th house transit experiences.

My Saturn transits loooong story

Saturn is different. It takes a long time to transit the whole chart. I remember my childhood days when Saturn transited my 10th, 11th and 12th house. My parents were having a hard time together, and so I lived a few years with my grandmother (which then became sick). I was a very shy kid, feeling socially alienated - I guess it was the 11th house transits - Uranus and Neptune were also transited the 11th and 12th houses, for these childhood and teenage years. I was dreamy and with a big interest in science, having so many outer planet transiting my eleventh and then twelfth house. As Saturn transited my 12th house, it was not only my grandmother that got sick, but also myself. It was a terrible time, I discovered several health problems in a short period of time, but I changed dramatically my diet, and recovered by the time Saturn transited into my first house. At that time, I gained my serious interest in natural sciences. I also moved again back to my parents. As Saturn entered the second, I discovered I wanted to be a Biologist. When Saturn then transited my third house I entered University and suffered the social struggle of fitting in, besides the troubles of study. Soon I got depressed, as Saturn moved into the fourth, but this was my spiritual awakening. It was also when I got to live independently from my parents! As Saturn moved to the fifth, it was a time of fun, the first romances, and studying abroad. Saturn moving into sixth, I finally close down this cycle, I moved again abroad a couple of years after starting my first job, but I was unhappy with my career. It's like all that sudden fifth house fun confronted the work life of sixth house. And as perfect as transits can get, I met my current fiancé, as Saturn transited seventh house. I still remember, first I got into a relationship, as Saturn was entering the descendant but it didn't work. But I was getting serious, and so this attracted the first and current serious relationship. When Saturn moved into eighth house, we moved to live together - again, such a perfect astrology synchrony. But it was a dense time: I was unemployed, because I was still unhappy with my career, which I only changed as Saturn moved ninth house, and we settled down living together in an ecovillage abroad - perfect ninth house symbolism again. It's also a nice cadent transit, by meaning I again adapted professionally and socially into a new social setting. I can only wonder what new great cardinal impulse, will Saturn make me create, in a couple of years, when it enters tenth house.

Uranus and Neptune

I will not talk much about Uranus and Neptune transits, except for the fact that I lived most of my brief adult years, with both transiting my first house, setting up a grand new beginning for my life. Uranus on the first house, was a rollercoaster of personal experimentation and discovery. Neptune, has been a long time of inner linkage, a long period with lots of visions and wishes, but rather indistinct looking ahead, and so I have been finding trust in the overall flow of life. With Uranus transiting the second, I was the struggle for professional freedom, and the realization I needed a new and quite free-concept career. Uranus in third, had been going through a collection of experiences, in which I can express this newly found career, by so adapting to everyday living and communicating (right now in an ecovillage). I have been having a long struggle to find some permanent roots, so I guess a a bit of fourth house influence is already starting to effect its energy on me. At the moment, I am very happy living in the countryside, in our own place, after living many years on a city.

Mars 2-year cycles

With Mars is also easy to discover the flow of each house into the next, and their themes and learning continuum. Mars was transiting my first house (in Aquarius) during many of my recent short-term crises: January 2000, December 2001, June 2003, May 2005, April 2007, March 2009, February 2011. These were also times were I took actions for some major life change. In some occasions, I was very effective, in others this resulted in conflict with other people. Mars transiting the second, was nearly always working on those choices. The first house is often a hunger for something new that often we don't really know what it is. It's like the emerging of a new seed, but we don't know yet what is coming out of it. Just that something speaks from our soul, and we are urged to act. When Mars transited third house, it was rather uplifting and happy times, generally very social and adapting to new social realities. Often, these are just more action related to the wishes that were stirred into action under the first house transit. I kind of see the second and third houses as learning the law of attraction and manifestation, in daily living. The fourth house is difficult to tell what it would be, but generally it defines an adjustment to the circumstances defined before, more in accordance to our inner needs. I don't think it has to mean a change always, but often is, when balance is required, when outer life is out of touch with our inner life. The transit in fifth house, is often a search for real pleasure (sometimes romance), in sixth house, it often involves hard work (I could say that it would be a practical manifestation of the still needed changes realized under the sixth house, often work-related). Seventh house is often marked by great relationship involvement, more social life, and often more career activity. This continues through 8th and 9th house transits. I have had this in summer 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010. When Mars enters tenth house, there is often a reevaluation of life, of taking a stand in our choices and commitments, and so this is a very important time. This happened for me in Feb 2003, Dec 2004, Nov2006, Oct 2008, Oct 2010. I often felt, at this time, a need to check where my life globally is heading, and to take significant action at career matters. This can start under the tenth house transit and continue to eleventh house, but by the time Mars enters 12th house, it is a time for rest, contemplation and nurturing our inner world, just before the hectic first house period.

You can also follow these house cycles with the Sun (an year) and with the Moon (a month).

Neptune transiting through each natal house

div>Transits to each house are nearly the same themes, but the approach and general energy we have towards those, is colored by each specific transiting planet. With Neptune, the way we live through a specific transit is colored by confusion, idealism or devotion to those same house themes. Changes will happen, we we will find ourselves suffering, confused, idealizing and devoted to personal issues, our family, our relationships and our career.

Neptune transiting 1st house marks the awakening of our personal levels, our soul, a new idealism, and a new softness in the way we relate to the outer world. We might feel terribly confused about our path in life, or we might feel inspired to pursuit a new path in life. We are very open to the energies surrounding us, between the self and the outside world. There might be a more pronounced interest in humanitarian and spiritual matters.

Neptune transiting 2nd house; we still feel confused or idealizing our path in life, and this affects more and more how we live professionally, it affects also our resources and money themes. We might live with little care about money, only to find that which truly appeals us, is how we own living (the way we live, the things we have, the things we do). These are still very much changes at a personal level. Anyone with this transit? I will have this in a few years.

Neptune transiting 3rd, we might feel confused, idealizing or devoted in our daily life, in our day to day existence, a little bit in the same line of the previous two transits. I think all these transits, make us feel closer to nature, spirituality and creativity. In 3rd house, our mind can be saturated with Neptune themes, of devotion, confusion, dreaming, imagination, music, arts, creativity, the things around us and our social living. Communication can be deceptive, confusing or inspiring.

Neptune transiting 4th and we feel lonely, in our own, looking for what it's going on inside, it is a perfect time for spiritual matters, but not so great for social engagement. We feel drawn to meditation and the inner world, we feel emotional. We look for our ideal roots. There is greater emotional sensitivity, as memories and the unconscious is stimulated. There might be Neptunian issues with our family (caring, suffering, devotion, linkage), and you might feel evasive from your career life, parents or boss.

Neptune transiting the 5th might make our romantic affairs idealizing or confused. Gambling and romance might be an illusion. There might be romance for the wrong reasons, it might be unrealistic, illusory, for drama, or deceptive. We know we want to pursuit the expression of our soul and have fun and pleasure, and express it. This transit can be good for creativity. There might some Neptunian issues with children.

Neptune transiting the 6th. I still don't know much about the 6th house transit.

Neptune transiting the 7th brings us devotion, loneliness, or confusion in close relationships. I still don't know much about the 8th house transit. Neptune transiting 9th brings us a very devoted philosophical interests in new visions about life, be it practically, or spirituality. There can be a great engagement with travel and exploration of other cultures and spiritual systems.

Neptune transiting 10th and 11th, makes us devoted (but probably not thinking too much) about our career, devoting ourselves to it, or perhaps with some confusion over it. Career can be a great source of confusion or devotion. In 11th house, we might feel more oriented to devote ourselves to social living, and social causes. And the 12th transit brings a new drawnness to the universal and inner world, to shyness, away from social activity, to the world of emotions and dreams, until a new awakening.

Uranus transiting 2nd house. Money and job issues

I have now finishing a long 7-years transit of Uranus through my SECOND HOUSE.

To put it short: I haven't not only gained the lottery, I haven't gained any big sums of money, I haven't loss money, I haven't experimented with different jobs!

Well, the whole story is different. In fact, I start my first job (a university grant) when Uranus was just about to enter 2nd house. After years of living crazy and free during university (Uranus transiting 1st), I settled down for a professional project. But soon, I discovered that this project was not what I liked, and that my boss restricted my personal freedom. I realized I was meant for a different career, which is a good representation of what the transit of Uranus in the 2nd means.

This happened between 2004 to 2006. Then, I decided I wanted to quit my project, but my boss did not allow me to breach the 4 years contract! At that time, I was occupied with discovering other ways of living, and I even became obsessed with the concept of self-sufficiency, as means to achieve the control over your resources, without the hand of a boss or society.

In 2008, I moved abroad, while working on the same project, but having a second and new boss (while keeping the first one but at distance). In 2009, the project finished and I became unemployed. Until then, I had saved great sums of money, by living very simple. No debts, no big spending, except for a couple of travels.

For the next 2 years, and until now, I haven't earn much money, but neither have I lost or spend much. I have a very careful person when it comes to financial planning.

During those 2 years, I had intermittent short-term paid contracts, and I also volunteered in radically different fields from that of my former career. Therefore, I gradually, built a whole new career, by experiencing new projects, even if I was not being paid for them (volunteering, internships, etc). Changing to a new career that appealed more to my personal freedom, values and happiness, was the main lesson of Uranus in 2nd house.

Jupiter transited 2nd house last year. Jupiter is nice because it has been showing me that there are many possible jobs I could take and be happy with, and as possibilities for earning.

But the thing is, every each I tried, I work, people like me a lot and my work, but don't pay me anything. Everyone says they don't have any chance of pay me because of the recession.

This is obviously the effect of Uranus in 2nd house. Actually I feel much more happy being quite free to swing from project to project, while learning from it. However, gradually my savings are decreasing. But unexpected, a new salary can come next money, by someone offer.

What I realized now is that I could in fact have had a stable salary from beginning to end, but would I really wanted it? In fact, I haven't made the effort to demand that, because I was already thinking in trying a new job/new project, while I was establishing on one.

Finally, I was lost some money. Not a lot. Particularly, in 2008 and 2009, I had some worries, when people asked me to pay some bills, tickets, and stuff like that. I even did not deserve those. But that was Uranus in 2nd house screaming that I should not get attached to money saving. Live in the present moment, Uranus said. Live to your fullest potential.

[B]Any other Aquarius rising with the same experience?????
[/B]

PS: Natally I dont have any planet in 2nd house, Pisces is in cusp, Neptune its ruler is conjunct the sun in 11th house, and I have been always working in 11th house jobs. No hard aspects to Neptune.

Another explanation is: I have Saturn in 8th house by transit and natally. So, this is Saturn (restriction) of money through other people (8th house).


The 2012 solar storms predictions! Solar storms in mid May and mid December 2012

It is well known from astronomers that the Sun rotates its sunspots every 27.2 days.

It was also recently discovered that the same core of sun spots stay from one cycle, to the next one. They might not be visible but the magnetic core is there, invisible, and they show themselves again, over the next solar cycle, in that same solar surface spots. This is not to say that new magnetic cores will form, and give origin to new sunspots. But roughly the same sunspots appear over and over again after 27.2 days.

I then checked when there were recently sunspots facing Earth, and geomagnetic storms:
For example:
9 to 14 January 2011
5 to 10 February 2011
4 to 9 March 2011

Going backwards this correlates with major solar storms in 31-.5 August 2010, or even back to 20 January 2005, very close to 15 July 2001 and 2 April 2001.
Only the major storm of 29-4 Nov 2003 does not fit in the cycle. Curiously appearing 14 days later, as if in the opposite side of the sun, to where most intense sunspots referred before formed.

Have you followed so far?

Extending the 27.2 day cycle into the future, we will get for example the following dates:
31 to 4 April 2011
28 to 2 May 2011
...
12 to 17 September 2011
9 to 14 October 2011
5 to 10 November 2011
...
20 to 25 March 2012
16 to 21 April 2012
13 to 18 May 2012
10 to 15 June 2012
7 to 12 July 2012
...
18 to 23 December 2012



Curiously, the 21/12/2012 Mayan date, appears right on the spot, as the solar maximum is predicted for 2012 and 2013. As usual, major solar storms will occur. How big no one knows.

It will be interesting to see if the solar sunspots and corresponding geomagnetic storms on Earth will fit this pattern!

----


I also discovered this possible cycle, about 7 months which fit with most solar storms on past 10 years:
April 2001 (X20) ...
July 2002 (X4) ...
October 2003 (X28) ...
January 2005 (X17)
...
nothing big happened afterwards until the current solar cycle 24
...
19 January 2010 (strongest solar flare in 2 years)
4 August 2010 ("solar tsunami" of 1st August)
15 February 2011 (X2)



The next big solar storms are likely come in:

12-17 September 2011 or 9-14 October 2011
16-21 Apr 2012 or 13-18 May 2012
21-26 Nov 2012 or 18-23 Dec 2012
23-28 July 2013

Again the Mayan date of 21/12/2012 appears right on the spot, of this 7 month major storm cycle. We know that the predictions are for a solar maximum in 2012 or 2013. The problem is that I am not sure what is the precise period of the 7 month cycle, it's something around 7 months (or 8 times 27.2 days, which is 217 days). However, you can add 27 days before or after to the dates above mentioned, to find other likely solar storm periods.

Also if we going backwards we will also find the June 1991 flares (X12) and March 1989 (Quebec power grid failure) on this cycle!

New predictions of the times of major world events in 2011 and 2012: dates pinpointed!

As major transiting planets, cross the cardinal cusp, and progress in cardinal signs, major global events happen.

Let's see the year of 2010 and 2011, in summary, as the Sun and Mars transits cardinal signs, and also Uranus crosses back and forth the Aries cusp. Sometimes 3 or 4 major world events happen within the same month!

Then, we will see which periods in 2011 and 2012 are likely to bring a row of major global events, like it happened now in March. The current intensity of global events will continue through April. Then, the next months of intensity will be July 2011, April and July 2012.

Remember I predicted last Christmas "In summary, the first highly charged period of 2011 will be between mid March and end of April!"

Many dramatic events in April 2010. Opposition Saturn/Uranus in 26 April; Sun in mid Aries, Mars in Leo. Also Uranus near Aries cusp.
  • Poland presidential flight crash (10 April)
  • Earthquake in China (13 April)
  • Eyjafjallajokull eruption and global disruption (14 April)
  • The Gulf of Mexico oil disaster (20 April)
  • The collapse of Greece economy (27 April)
25-29 July, Mars in Libra triggers the great cardinal cross. Some major events
  • The global disclosures of Wikileaks (25 July)
  • Pakistan floods (29 July)
Late October 2010. Conjunction North Node and Pluto. Sun in mid Libra. Cardinal energy increases again crises events.
  • France long-lasting riots 15 October to 5 November
  • G-20 meeting 23 October
  • Earthquake, tsunami and volcanic eruption in Indonesia (25-26 October)
Major events in 17-28 Nov. Mars nears Capricorn cusp. Another row of major global events! Also Saturn reaches mid Libra, a point of cardinal change.
  • London riots 11 Nov.
  • CERN traps anti-matter 17 Nov.
  • NATO summit 20 Nov.
  • Major protests and revolts in Europe (October to December)
  • The collapse of Ireland economy, fears of a Euro collapse (21-29 November)
  • The attack of North Korea, threats of a nuclear war (23 November)
  • Wikileaks global disclosures and scandals (28 Nov.)
10-21 December. Mars in Capricorn. Still the Wikileaks, Korea and Europe crises
  • Wikileaks scandal 1-15 Dec.
  • London violent riots 10 Dec.
  • Rome riots 11 Dec.
  • South Korea drill and near war 22-23 Dec.
Jan and Feb 2011. Saturn has progressed beyond 15º Libra (cardinal change happens). The Muslim uprisings. It has gone retrograde meanwhile. So far, the uprisings have calmed down. As Saturn turns again direct in July, this means that new revolutions might happen again in the Summer and Autumn months!
  • South Sudan independence 9 Jan.
  • Tunisia uprising 14 Jan.
  • Egypt uprising 11 Feb
  • New Zealand earthquake 22 Feb
  • Libya uprising 22 Feb

THE FUTURE; NEXT DATES

Mid March 2011.
Mars and Sun near Aries cusp. Uranus also in Aries cusp. Jupiter and Saturn opposition. Again many dramatic events!
  • The Japan earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster (11 March and afterwards)
  • Libya war (19 March and afterwards)
  • The collapse of Portugal economy 24 March
Around and between 4 and 19 April. Sun and Mars join the Jupiter and Saturn opposition.

This is a month of great cardinal energy. More big events are likely to happen. Much intensity. Since this hits directly the chart of many world nations, this might be again a big thing. Maybe a war starting.

28 June to 9 July 2011. Sun progress through a cardinal sign, while forming a big cardinal cross. Uranus and Pluto begin their long cardinal square! And Mars transits the revolutionary Gemini.

This will be probably a time of revolutions! The economy might be so unstable that would trigger that need for revolts. There is a push for revolutionary conflict. This might be the return of the uprisings early in the year, but on a new level. Nations might feel great pressure. Might be Middle East, Europe or another important country. At best, a revolution. At worse, a war. July might be well a month known in history for its riots.

As Mars transits Cancer in August 2011, there might be a new major natural disaster, comparable to the Chile and Japan earthquakes. Could be some events happening between July and August.

There might be more intensity around September and December 2011.

25 March to 15 April 2012. While there is again much cardinal energy, a long opposition of Mars to Neptune. This might be a time of natural disaster, or something that will impact strongly mankind. I am not sure, could be economic related, I even though about the flu pandemic returning again.

1-31 July 2012. Another month of GREAT cardinal energy. At least one or two big events are expected. A new sort of "global focus" on "some important major issue" will happen by this time. Watch out for this (whether a revolution, economic crises, or war) because this might be the trigger for the VERY BIG row of events due to happen by 2013 and 2014. I expect some quite of historical news in July (could be a revolt in some western country, an important moment of crises in the economy) and then again in late November 2012 (more likely a war at this time).

See here for more information



11 March 2011 - Uranus enters Aries and... Japan disaster

11 March 2011, the day Uranus entered Aries, was also the day of the Japan earthquake/ tsunami / nuclear disaster!

Could it be more perfect astrologically speaking?

The cardinal T-square of 2010-2011 happened with a lot of major events!!!
  • The Haiti and Chile earthquakes (January and February)
  • Eyjafjallajokull eruption and global disruption (April and May)
  • The Gulf of Mexico oil disaster (April and May)
  • The collapse of Greece economy (April and May)
  • The global scandal and disclosures of Wikileaks (July and November)
  • Earthquake, tsunami and volcanic eruption in Indonesia (October)
  • Major protests and revolts in Europe (October to December)
  • The collapse of Ireland economy, fears of a Euro collapse (November)
  • The attack of North Korea, threats of a nuclear war (November)
  • Wave of uprisings and civil war in Muslim countries (January to now)
  • The New Zealand earthquake (February)
  • The Japan earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster (March)
  • The collapse of Portugal economy (March)
Such a big list!

Millions were affected by these events.
It was a year of impressive change.

2011 will be again full of historical events.

Sun transiting 3rd or 9th house and big travels

Every April and October, the transiting Sun goes through my 3rd and 9th house.
This occurs always in the same month, and it depends on the rising sign we have.

Since I have Aquarius rising, in April, the Sun transits Aries (my natal 3rd house), and in October, Libra (my natal 9th house).

I noticed that travelling tends to happen a lot at these times of the year.

Below are the times when I traveled abroad (in recent years).
Transcontinental travel is also indicated:

February 2003 - moved abroad
April 2003 - traveled abroad - Sun transiting 3rd
October 2003 - travel abroad - Sun transiting 9th
November 2004 - almost traveled to Latin America - Mars transiting 9th, Jupiter transiting 9th
December 2004 - traveled abroad - Jupiter transiting 9th
April 2005 - travel abroad - Sun transiting 3rd, Jupiter transiting 9th
August 2005 - traveled to Brazil - Jupiter transiting 9th
October 2005 - travel abroad - Sun transiting 9th, Jupiter transiting 9th
March 2006 - moved abroad - Jupiter transiting end of 9th
April 2006 - travel abroad - Sun transiting 3rd, Jupiter transiting end of 9th
August 2006 - travel abroad - Jupiter still transiting 9th
October 2006 - travel abroad - Sun transiting 9th, Mars transiting 9th
April 2007- travel abroad - Sun transiting 3rd
October 2007- almost traveled to India - Sun transiting 9th
December 2007 - travel abroad
March 2008- moved abroad
April 2008- travel abroad - Sun transiting 3rd
October 2008 - travel abroad - Mars transiting 9th
February 2009 - travel abroad
June 2009 - travel abroad
February 2010- travel abroad
April 2010 - moved abroad - Sun transiting 3rd
September 2010 - travel by hitchhiking - Mars transiting 9th
January 2011 - moved abroad, Uranus and Jupiter transiting 3rd cusp, Saturn in 9th house

Almost all of the times I traveled, I had the Sun, Mars or Jupiter transiting either the 3rd or 9th house. This is more than a coincidence. Travel also happens often in April or October, at the times the Sun transits through my 3rd and 9th houses.

There seems to be more travels at the time the Sun transits the 3rd house rather than the 9th, maybe because of a more personal period, less focused on career matters.

Far away travel tends to occur more under the influence of 9th house transits, or when Jupiter transits both houses. Just look at how often I traveled, when Jupiter transited through my 9th house.

In addition, travel can also be more appealing, when planets are transiting the 1st and 7th houses, due to the cardinal energy, and also during the 5th house, due to the pursuit of pleasure.

Our previous article focused on planets transiting our 2nd house and how I often changed place of residence at those times. Link for article here.

Sun transiting 2nd house and changing apartments!

Every March, the transiting Sun goes through my second house.
This occurs always in the same month, and it depends on the rising sign we have.

Since I have Aquarius rising, in March, the Sun transits Pisces (my natal 2nd house).

Right now (17th March) I am preparing to move into a new apartment.
I noticed that changes of residence tends to happen a lot at this time of the year.

Below are the times when I moved into a new apartment (in last 10 years):
Feb 2000 - Mars transiting 2nd
Feb 2003 - Sun transiting 2nd
May 2003 -
Nov 2003 - Mars transiting 2nd
Mar 2004 - Sun transiting 2nd
Mar 2005 - Sun transiting 2nd
Mar 2006 - Sun transiting 2nd
Sep 2006
Mar 2008 - Sun transiting 2nd
Mar 2009 - Sun transiting 2nd, Mars transiting 2nd
Nov 2009
May 2010 - Jupiter transiting 2nd house
Jan 2011 - Jupiter still transiting 2nd house
Mar 2011 - Sun transiting 2nd, Mars transiting 2nd

Half of the times I moved apartment were in March, when the Sun transited my 2nd natal house. This is more than a coincidence. This time of the year usually represents "a new beginning", after the Sun transits the natal first house, and the second house represents the practical manifestation of that "new beginning". Often, Mercury and Mars are also transiting the 2nd house.

I often moved into new cities or countries at this time of the year (when the Sun transits Pisces, my 2nd natal house). Examples include February 2000, February 2003, March 2006, March 2008 and January 2011.

For those who question themselves, why not the 4th house, I tell you the following: in fact, counting from my Sagittarius natal Sun, Pisces would be my solar 4th house. Whether this is relevant, I don't know.

The fact is that often around February or March I start a new life somewhere else.

More examples of Sun transiting a specific natal house, and correlations with trivial mundane events, to follow in future articles. Go to the blog mainpage here.

Accuracy of AstroTransits predictions in 2011: Arab protests and Japan disaster

Last year, I was already forecasting that there would be Islamic uprisings:
Written 20 Nov 2010 (before the Arab uprisings), link here: Pluto in Capricorn II- Uprisings against capitalism and religion, political extremism, economic proteccionism and abuses of power. The popular uprisings could be nationalistic, patriotic, anti-immigrant, or even arab intifadas, within Europe or the US. This will be large by 2016-2017, this will be a low point, not only economic trouble, but the large trouble now is large social unrest or even chaos, nuclear tensions or terrorist attacks, political extremism, etc. This tipping point will linger between now and 2022, either global peace is enforced or there will be large wars or regional uprisings against this global status quo when Pluto transits Pisces in 2040-2080. Think for instance of Islamic uprisings or wars continuing through the next decade.

The general "uprising" trend of the decade 2010-2020:
Written 29 Nov 2010, link here: Uranus in Aries is a time for rebels and unique movements, and as Uranus makes a long square to Pluto in Capricorn, this will be a long period of protests, scandals, clashes, conflicts and uprisings. For the good, and for the bad. Ultimately, there will be large scale revolutions when Pluto enters Aquarius, and a completely transformed world

Written, 11 Dec 2010, link here:
During the next months and years, there will be more individuals coming out with radical protest measures against the status quo!

On extreme natural disasters:
Written 25 Nov 2010, link here: Geological phenomena (like the Icelandic volcano, or the Chile earthquake) will also occur in next years. As the collective becomes aggitated, so the planet mirrors this, giving rise to some disasters. It could be that we will become more humble in face of our planet, maybe in a couple of decades, when Neptune transits Aries

And about the specific Japan earthquake/ tsunami / nuclear crisis. It occured exactly on the day Uranus was entering Aries (11 March), and the cardinal crisis was triggered, as predicted:
Written 23 Dec 2010, link here: In March, we find the start of more aggressive energies. If you have planets or angles in cardinal degrees, watch out for the next two periods: 10 March: Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Aries. 18-21 March: Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in 12º Aries, and opposes Saturn in 15º Libra (degree of many national charts); Full Moon in spring equinox. At least, we will see some DISRUPTIONS for large groups of people, this could be flights disruptions for example (as we observed now with snowstorms, and last April with the Icelandic volcano). This is the likely period for WIKILEAKS new revelations causing fears in the stock markets. Dates of more energy in 2011: 10 March, 18-21 March, 2-4 April, 18-22 April
In the months ahead, much change is expected to happen in April (due to Mars in Aries). I would follow closely the dates aforementioned. More protest energy is likely to occur in July, after the summer solstice (due to Mars in Gemini), and also by mid September (due to Mars in Cancer).

The Japanese disaster (which resulted on a global crisis) is occurring now as Mercury and Jupiter oppose Saturn in 13-15º Aries / Libra axis, which are degrees where most western nations have their angles, and most important natal planets. Therefore, the activation of this axis is at least, the spark of a large global crises.

The axis is going to be transited by Uranus and Pluto in the years ahead, 2013, 2014 and 2015, which could result in a further bigger global series of events. By 19 April 2011, the same degree is going to be triggered again (this might be another development of big events?). It is a preview of what the next years might bring.

It could be linked to what is happening now (endless economic crisis, crash of resources and energy, nuclear energy and radiation, population displacements, natural disasters, uprisings)

Rulers in Astrology - an unconventional opinion

For me rulers make no sense. Astrologers are just linking planet similarities to signs (Jupiter for Sagittarius, Saturn to Capricorn, Uranus to Aquarius...). Just like they link houses to signs (e.g, second house to Taurus, third to Gemini).

Why does Mars rule Scorpio or Aries? You could argue for Pluto ruling Aries, or for Mercury ruling Aries, Neptune ruling Cancer, or for Neptune ruling Sagittarius. Or Moon ruling Pisces!

It's just affinities. I don't think there are rulerships.

Everything is a concept invented by humans. Let us go beyond the mental illusions of humans, reality is much more strange to understand!

Signs actually blend one another, there are no clear cut divisions. A person born in 25 June is somewhere in a spectrum between Gemini and Cancer, just like the musical note scale, the colors of the rainbow, or the electromagnetic spectrum.

Just like the scale goes in same energetic pattern, from spring equinox to spring equinox (Aries to Pisces), so goes the pattern of houses one next to the other, after the rising sign: fire, earth, air and water.

In reality, it's all about geometry, that relates to that sequence of four elements of inner and outer transformation. I am not 100% sure about this, nonetheless I guess this is possibly a pretty close understanding of the astrological reality.

Trines relate to same element. Sextile relate to same compatible energy. Square relates to same mode of operation (mutable, cardinal or fixed) but different energies. Opposition to complementary but contrasting energies. So, go the houses, like between 1st, 5th and 9th, or relationship between the angles and the following houses, 2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th.

Planets do not seem to relate closely to this sequence. If I relate the Sun to first house, I cannot relate Mercury to the second house, or Venus to the 3rd house. If I relate Sun to the 5th house, I would have to relate Mars to the 8th house, Neptune to the 12th house, and how about the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th houses?

Same thing goes to signs. If I relate the Sun to Leo, then I relate Mercury to Virgo, Venus to Libra, and until Neptune to Pisces, and how about between Aries and Cancer. Cancer could relate the Moon, and Pluto with Aries, but what about Taurus and Gemini?

As I said before, it is still very interesting to see these patterns between a sequence of signs and a sequence of planets in our solar system, but at a certain point the sequence does not seem very linear.

Comments are welcome.

Big changes coming in 2011?

Just as in July 2008 as the oil prices rose quickly, and there was a big global recession, now we are watching a very fast climbing of oil prices in consequence of the unrest in North Africa and Middle East.

If an uprising happens in Saudi Arabia (and a "day of rage" is scheduled for 11 March), this could cause a serious block in oil supply, and make the prices climb even higher than in 2008. This could result in a more serious global depression in 2012 and afterwards, just as I forecast.

At the same time, we are witnessing a wave of revolutions spreading around. In Sudan, Tunis, Egypt, and now Libya and Yemen. Even if this does not result in a worst global economical crises, this uprising wave could easily reach important countries such in Europe (we already see signs of it in Greece, Italy and sometimes in France and the UK). We see the unrest in Belgium, and the economic impasse in Ireland, Portugal and Spain. I have predicted this serious of intense events for December 2010 earlier last year, here and here.

This could be well the catalyst to result in a global wave of uprisings around Europe (and even in America and China), for the years following 2012. We know that around 2015, global matters will be much more complicate. Also the charts of most western countries will be affected by the square of Uranus/Pluto. This has happened last time in the thirties, during Great Depression and WWII. By 2023, a global wave of revolutions is forecast, just as it happened 250 years ago, when Pluto transited Capricorn, prior to America and French Revolutions. We could be watching now the early beginnings of this revolution wave, as we have predicted in previous posts here (a Great Depression in 2010s), here (year by year astrological energy and predictions, between now and 2025) and here (the cardinal climax crises hitting bottom in late 2010s). It's a little bit the Astrology of Revolutions, that happen in cycles every 21 and 84 years.

Watch out for this spring. A day of rage in Saudi Arabia on 11th March. If that causes oil prices to climb even higher, then by spring echinox, we could be well into a new global crises. More or less as it happened in the autumn equinox of 2008. This would result in further protests and uprisings by late spring and early autumn.

And remember that with the Uranus energy, anything unpredictable can happen, just like the pandemic in 2009 or the Icelandic volcano in 2010. We could still have more Wikileaks revelations, or a disruptive big solar flare as a new solar maximum approaches.

How the cardinal crises is unfolding worldwide - rhythmic periods of unrest about every 3 months

The following dates mark the periods of increase headlines and global unrest/change, since the cardinal crises began in 2008:

May-Jun 2008: Global oil protests, China earthquake and hurricane in Burma
Sep-Dec 2008: Obama and global recession begins
Jan 2009: Gaza war
Apr-May 2009: Korea/Iran tension and pandemic flu
Jan-Feb 2010- Haiti and Chile earthquakes
Apr-May 2010: Greece protests and Icelandic volcano, Pakistan heatwave
Sep-Dec 2010: French protests, Wikileaks, Korea and Euro crises, European coldwave
Jan 2011: North Africa uprisings, Australia flooding and US blizzards

There looks to be some patterns to it.
First, most action seems to happen right after or around the equinoxes and solstices, for example in January, in April-May or June, in September and in December.
Second, if you look at what was happening astrologically, you will notice that Mars was transiting cardinal signs.
  • Mars in Libra brings renewed economic crises, and an important personality (Obama and Wikileaks).
  • Mars in Capricorn brings war tensions (Gaza, Korea) and the Arab world.
  • Mars in Aries brings war tensions and brought the pandemic.
  • Mars in Leo brought renewed global protests, disruptions and more natural disasters
April and May 2011 Mars transits again Aries. What will happen this time? War? Riots? Look for mid April 2011 for more possible unrest.

July 2011 Mars transits Gemini, and October 2011 Mars transits Leo. Would there be revolutions, uprisings and more protest, around the world? I expect 2011 to be a little bit like 1968. April, July and October can mark the start and culmination of something.

Is there also going another big natural disaster around October?

July and August 2012, Mars transits Libra: would there be renewed economic crises? Would there be another glimpse of dramatic change brought by someone like Obama and Julian Assange?
