Since the 5th Century onward there has been a consistent pattern of “X-Events”. “X-Events” are unexpected major events that have changed the course of history. These “X-Events” had potent long-term global significance that often occurred during the second decade at the start each century. Many of these game-changing historical events often occurred in the middle part of the decade and correlated to events such as the rise and fall of empires, the military invasions, revolts and social revolutions, political power-struggles unexpected outcomes, religious conflicts, the outbreak of major wars, to name a few.
Here is a listing of respective “X-Events” and their respective horoscopes with description:
Late Antiquity - August 24, 410

During this period there were a series of civil uprisings, violent rebellions, and insurgencies in Great Britain and Ireland. This uprising had the aim of returning James VII of Scotland - James Stuart the Old Pretender of England, and later his descendants of the House of Stuart, to the throne of Great Britain after they had been deposed by Parliament during the Glorious Revolution in 1688. This conflict ended with the establishment of the Hanoverians in 1715. They ruled over Great Britain and Ireland, and Hanover (in Germany).
Age Of Discovery – June 24, 1812
The French invasion of Russia is a turning point in the Napoleonic Wars in 1812. The enlightened Congress of Vienna took place in 1815, following the defeat of Napoleon, and heralded a century of relative stability across Europe
Age of Revolution – August 4, 1914
World War I began in 1914. The First World War broke out, a catastrophic conflict that would claim millions of lives and set the tone for international discord throughout the 21st century.
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union, “X- Events” (events of low probability that have high international impact) and their number and magnitude have been increasing over the past two decades. The United States, as the world’s lone military, technological, and economic “Superpower”, remains the nation to watch over the forthcoming years, as it still has the necessary historical gravitas and political prowess to play a dominant role in changing the course of the 21st Century.
This is key, as the astrological portents of the 2014 Aries Ingress horoscope (Jupiter Ruler of the M.C. on the Ascendant square Uranus in the 10th House and in opposition to Pluto on the Descendant) clearly indicates that the United States and its leadership will be coerced through a series of unexpected geopolitical developments of large magnitude, to make bold make-or-break decisions that will have major impact along with profound consequences for many nations throughout the world.
The BiWheel Horoscope of the United States (Late Morning Rectification for 11:27:40 AM LMT) shows that the Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-Square alignment makes a direct hit to the U.S. Sun in the 10th House and augurs an archetypal outburst in the nation’s collective. This will set in motion a series of revolutionary dynamics that has been building up over the past two decades, as a result of the gradual the breakdown of social institutions, the steady curtailment of the civil liberties, excessive taxation by non-responsive government, and the ineffectual leadership and narrow scope of vision by the generational establishment in power.
The Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-Square alignment on the U.S. Sun will begin to disrupt the pervasive influence of “transnational” and private interest in government that continues to direct and shape both America’s foreign and domestic policy. With this alignment, we can also expect developments that will disrupt the continuing concentration of wealth and expose the intrusive and covert agenda of the national security complex that serves the nation’s advanced oligarchy.
Uranus and Pluto will make a another 90 degree alignment on April 21, 2014. This is the fifth of of seven successive squares which began June 24, 2012 and will occur again December 15, 2014, making its final alignment on March 16, 2015.
According to Mundane Astrologer Theodore White, “The current seven exact squares in the early to mid-Twenty-Tens is about major generational change between [the generational] establishments, where values and principles clash against old, outdated methodologies/ideologies, in favor of fresh reforms and sometimes radical evolution into an emerging new world era.”
The most recent Uranus-Pluto square alignment occurred on November 1, 2013, during which it conjuncted the heliocentric North Node of Jupiter – the planet of economic expansion and wealth. During this period Central Banks worldwide continued to accelerate their Quantitative Easing – digital money printing – to prop up the Bond and Equity markets as global GDP growth stalled and capital generation in nearly every G20 nation fell sharply.
The Uranus-Pluto alignment in Spring 2014: Transiting Mars will be stationing retrograde on March 1st and going retrograde-direct on May 19th. During that period, Mars will amplify the archetypal planetary dynamics, acting as an agent-provocateur on the world stage as it takes part in the Grand Cardinal Cross alignment with Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. The Grand Cardinal Cross represents not only the build up, but the sudden, dramatic upheaval and major reversal of power of oligarchical rule.
Usually change within the collective is gradual, allowing time for the masses to integrate and adapt to new archetypal energies that are unfolding, but sometimes it is quick and explosive. Thus the Cardinal Grand Cross signifies that civilization has arrived at a crucial “tipping point”, where unsustainable and untenable systems of government throughout the globe – including the United States – will be shaken to the core and begin to breakdown.
Chris Hedges, an American journalist specializing in American politics and society, explains it best as to why it has taken so long for people to come to terms that nearly all forms of governance is about maximizing corporate profit at the expense its citizenry, when he states:
“The inability to grasp the pathology of our oligarchic rulers is one of our gravest faults. We have been blinded to the depravity of our ruling elite by the relentless propaganda of public relations firms that work on behalf of corporations and the rich.”
On a global level the Cardinal Grand Square will also recapitulate the tangible intensification and acceleration of environmental catastrophe and the near-term exhaustion of natural resources of the planet, challenging the very power structure that holds back the expression of the Uranus-Pluto archetypal complex: the Dionysian (Pluto) impulse for collective empowerment and the Promethean (Uranus) thrust for radical change.
Scholar, author, and cultural historian Richard Tarnas has stated that periods during Uranus-Pluto alignments correlated with “widespread radical and political social change and often destructive upheaval, massive empowerment of revolutionary and rebellious impulses, and intensified artistic and intellectual creativity.” Also, “unusually rapid technological advance, an underlying spirit of restless experiment, drive for innovation, urge for freedom in many realms, revolt against oppression, embrace of radical political philosophies, and intensified collective will to bring forth a new world.” (pp. 143-144, Cosmos & Psyche).

Based on previous Uranus-Pluto alignments, in Spring 2014 we can expect an intensified awakening and galvanization of counter-cultural activity, increase drive for personal freedom, and a reawakening of movements in many conservative risk-adverse cultures.
Since the beginning of 2014 we have been witnessing the continued intensification and acceleration of social and political breakdown among many nations throughout the globe, due to a weakening economic environment of bankruptcy, monetary debasement, high unemployment/underemployment rates, large-scale demonstrations, nationwide strikes and riots in major cities, leading to increasing polarization and political partisanship and government in taking measures against its own citizenry, that will ultimately lead that radical reconfiguration of the monetary system and global power structure between now and 2020.
From late Spring 2014 forward, we can expect a continuing escalation and acceleration of uprisings, large-scale protest, strikes, and skirmishes that will begin to unravel and threaten the peace between the great powers in several regions throughout the globe. There have been the now-historic revolts in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and other Middle East and North African (MENA) states. Iraq is once again disintegrating after a decade of American “nation-building.” Greece and Spain is falling apart. Italy is on the verge of collapsing but hasn’t yet. France is in a deep recession and its falling into bankruptcy and the United Kingdom is also in a protracted recession that continues to intensify like France, but has the additional burden of a over-populated and volatile underemployed multi-ethnic mix in its major cities.
Collectively, the G-20 economies account for around 85% of the gross world product (GWP), 80% of world trade (or if excluding EU intra-trade: 75%), and two-thirds of the world population. Below is the Blackbox Rating Hit List of the Grand Cardinal Square to G-20 Nations Horoscopes (Red Indicates Stressed).
MENA region has vast reserves of petroleum and natural gas that make it a vital source of global economic stability. The MENA region has 60% of the world’s oil reserves (810.98 billion barrels or 128.936 km3) and 45% of the world’s natural gas reserves (2,868,886 billion cubic feet or 81,237.8 km3) .
