Presidential Election Predictions on “Mark The Rabbit Hole” Radio Show with Mark Metheny 2016 (Part 1)

Transcribed from “Mark The Rabbit Hole” Radio Show with Mark Metheny.  Guest: William Stickevers
(Airdate: October 6, 2016)

Mark Metheny: Good evening, welcome to Mark The Rabbit Hole. Tonight our guest will be William Stickevers and he will be joining us shortly.  We’re going to do our final look at the election and the polls, where they are now compared to when we started this earlier.  William’s been on a few times previously talking about this.  So I think our guest is out there — William, is that you?

William Stickevers: That’s me.  Hi, Mark.

Mark: How’s it going, my friend?

William:  Good, good.  Going great.  How are you?

Mark: Good. Just enjoying the energies out there.

William: Yeah, there’s a lot going on.  It’s been unrelenting.  An unrelenting summer, and the fall has just been going full throttle with acceleration, pedal to the metal.

Mark:  Yes, so I guess, first of all, I know some of the listeners know you but why don’t you give us your website and where they can find you and all that good stuff.

William:  I’m at  I’m also listed on Facebook and I post many of my predictions there as well.  I can be reached through that platform.  As you know, Mark, I’m not only a regular personal consulting astrologer, part of my living practice is doing mundane astrology so I’m not just an astrologer who comes up every four years and decides I’m going to make a prediction on the general election.  I’m predicting on world events, political affairs, financial matters, economic matters, almost weekly.  So it’s a big part of my practice here.

Mark:  Good.  I know you’ve got a mundane or horary class going on right now?


William:  Yeah, right now I have a 9-week mundane class that is designed for intermediate to world-class professionals; I’ve actually scaled it in such a way.  And we’re covering every known technique including the history of mundane astrology up until the latest state-of-the-art techniques that have a consistent and proven track record of 65 percent or greater.  I think everyone is learning a lot; I’m certainly learning a lot.  Especially when you have to teach something, and articulate it and put together a PowerPoint presentation that’s not going to be boring, that’s going to build upon itself, that’s going to keep everyone interested and informed, and something that they can apply to their practice immediately was a big challenge for me.  But I’ve been having a great time doing it and I’m getting a lot of great feedback from my students who, also, some of them happen to be world class mundane, world class financial astrologers.  So it’s really great.  Half my class is international; the other half is America-based.

Mark:  Awesome.  So if anyone needs more details, is there going to be a second round of this class coming up?

William:  Absolutely.  We’re going to be doing it next year, and I’m going to include some new additional material which I could not include in this one because it required more prep time.  Also, in these classes, especially in this one, we are having in a couple weeks our guest lecturer is Theodore White who is going to go over the fundamentals of weather forecasting with the class.  So he’s going to run that class and I’m just going to be participating and listening and learning.  So we’re very excited about that; we’re all big fans of Theodore.  I know you are as well.  And in the future I’m going to include some other people to maybe talk about earthquake prediction, volcano prediction, people with those specialties.

As you know, my specialty is more political and economics; that seems to be where I’m drawn and focused to and pulled toward, actually.  But mundane is such a broad, broad subject; it covers so many things and it’s very fascinating.  Unfortunately, the word is “mundane”, which means something very contemporary, boring, ordinary.  But mundane astrology is quite the opposite, quite different than what the title suggests.  And I know my students, many of them have taken personal astrology pretty far.  Many of them who are intermediates and even dabbling or considering doing a full-time practice have realized, ‘I don’t think I can do too much more with personal astrology or psychological astrology; I need to broaden my understanding, my world view’ and they thought learning mundane was a great way for this to happen.  So because it broadens their perspective and so they can understand there are other forces outside the personal sphere of influence that are actually having an impact in people’s decision-making, and that is something that — I think we’ve had many discussions about this on other shows, and I know we’ve talked about this one-to-one — is something that’s really marginalized and overlooked or not even discussed in natal astrology.

Mark:  Yes, yes, people are often stunned when I tell them that I have charts of all the professional sports teams and all the countries and that it’s not just looking at a person’s horoscope or birth chart but that government agencies have charts, restaurants that you eat at have charts, every business has a chart.  So people are usually surprised when I tell them that and so it’s not just the workings of your chart that you can look at but you can look at events and elections, sporting events, whatever, and see how there’s different energies playing and there’s charts for the specific events too.  And I think people, especially the astrology naysayers are surprised that it’s not just fluffy unicorns and “stay away from Virgos today” and that kind of stuff.  I think that catches people off-guard when they know how much detail you can go into.

William:  Absolutely.  And you know, what I find amazing is– there’re two types of people outside of astrology in terms of mundane.  Many people find it fascinating when you can talk with such authority and detail looking at history backwards for justification of planetary alignments with events that changed the course, game-changing events or watershed events in history, and then talking about the future in a very informed, detailed way and how the future is actually impacting and informing the present.  And then so there’s that group who is really fascinated, and there’s another group of people out there who are really threatened by it.  I mean really threatened by it, almost as if you were talking about Bernie [Sanders] to a rabid George Bush supporter.  So it goes one way or the other.

Now, what I find interesting about astrology is that many people who do natal, non-predictive natal astrology, many of them who are practicing psychotherapists or MSW workers, they are very ambivalent about really stating their opinion [on mundane astrology].  In fact, when you go to these [astrology] conferences, you see the rooms for sun sign astrology lectures filled up and packed to the brink.  Secondary progressions, you can’t get a waiting seat.  Come to big transits, forget about it — you’re going to have to find an alternative track for the 2 o’clock period.  But mundane is only, what, like 10-15 people there with a room that could fill 50.  And I just find this really fascinating.

It’s actually disconcerting to me and I just don’t understand what’s going on with the body-politic of astrologers these days when there’s so much going on in the world, that everything is being turned upside-down, inside-out, economically, politically, socially, on every level.  And yet, the astrology world —  you know, Mark.  I’ve been to all these conferences since the early ’90s; it’s not like I’m not in the know.  I know.  I know all these top speakers; they know me on a first-name basis.  So here’s the thing: the astrologers in general, as a group — and I’m not pointing anyone out in particular — are not keeping up with the bigger trends.  They just seem to be disengaged and disinterested.  And maybe there was a reason for that, because it was “stick it to the man”, “who cares about what’s going on”, right, maybe that hippie/Baby Boomer attitude and world view was responsible for that.

But today that’s obsolete.  We’ve gotten past the point of plausible deniability.  Things are really not going right in so many ways, which I know we’re going to discuss.  So I think it’s fascinating that a lot of people in the astrology world, there’s a small but growing minority of people getting drawn into mundane.  Even if they don’t plan to make mundane their living practice, they want to know what it’s about, what it has to say, how mundane archetypal portents influence the archetypal landscape and shape and inform the world stage.  So they think it’s important now because they see something is going on and it’s very upsetting, frightening.  In fact, for all intents and purposes, we’re in the Twilight Zone.

Mark:  I agree.  One of the things to me is that astrology is several thousand years old.  I mean, to me one of our jobs is to keep it evolving and moving forward and keep testing ideas and make sure that Uranus, Aquarius rules astrology, so we need to keep that evolving and I just think, I run across a lot of ideology where they just want to keep it stuck or back into the old ideas and concepts without developing it any.  And so to me the predicting earthquakes, tsunamis, earth changes, and things is one of the most relevant and helpful things we can do to help keep evolving astrology.

And also, I’ve seen a few comments where someone like you will, say, has made some predictions, and people get upset and say “oh, so you want this to happen” and it startles me that some people are not able to look past their personal preferences or how they would like things to turn out, and they just try to bend things to what their preconceived idea is.  And I think this election has been a great example of this because it’s not gone at all how I expected.  But I think you’re one of the few people who’s had your finger really on the pulse of what’s been happening and not been blinded by their preconceptions.  So, kudos to you on that one.

William:  Oh, thank you very much.  I appreciate that.  And you know, I tell you something, one of the things I teach my students is that we need to be nonpartisan and independent in our thinking, in our viewpoints.  Let the testimonies speak for themselves.  If we are weighing them properly and we are being as objective as we can — and it’s very difficult to do that — but if we do that, we’re going to be within about the 80th percentile of accuracy.  We’re not always going to be right, and nobody is.

Just keep in mind that the greatest stock market trader Bill Gross — he’s one of the best bond traders in the world — is only right 53 percent of the time.  You only need to be right 53 percent of the time in order to make billions of dollars in the stock market, to have it all, to have your cake and eat it too on Wall Street.  And you know, 53 percent is a landslide in politics.

So, you know, the expectation of the mainstream media experts and critics of astrology out there is like, “no, unless it’s 99.9999999 percent, this doesn’t work.”  You could be 80 percent, “nope, still doesn’t cut it.”

So, I’m telling people here and my students, stick with the astrology.  If you want to make an argument or a speculation that a certain thing will manifest in such a way, you need to prove it out with me.  You need to show me multiple testimonies, multiple techniques.  You can’t just say one thing.  You have to layer it and build it up.  You have to think vertically here,  meaning you can’t just say a one-testimony, one-chart, one-transit approach does all, says all, is all.  And that’s basically what we’ve been fed, at least I know I’ve been fed for the past 30 years.

And you know, the only reason I’ve been more on the pulse of the election is because I’ve been just looking at the mundane portents and I’ve known — and this is something that Theodore White and I discussed back this time last year — we knew it was going to be an establishment candidate backed by the American oligarchical elite, that would be [Jeb] Bush or Hillary Clinton, versus a populist candidate.  So we eliminated very early on that [Jeb] Bush would be the nominee.  And we also eliminated that Bernie would be the nominee.  So we knew that it would be Hillary versus a Uranus-Pluto dark horse candidate that was going to turn everything upside-down, inside-out, destroy the body-politic of the nation.  And that’s why we — well, I certainly came to the conclusion first, and Theodore followed up shortly thereafter, came to the conclusion that it was going to be Trump.  And Trump is the beginning of the first phase, or a category one social revolution.  This is not just another election like 99 percent of the astrologers — and I’m going to keep saying that, I know that’s a lot of people — but 99 percent of the astrologers kept framing it as another Bush-Gore election 2000, except on steroids.  No! No! No! No! NO! This is not just another election.  We’re seeing [the first phase of] a social revolution.


Just the fact of what had to happen in order for Trump to be the nominee.  The fact that Hillary Clinton technically lost that campaign and is still the nominee, has completely medically collapsed and wasn’t disqualified after she was medically diagnosed with pneumonia is just startling. Also, we are seeing the populist rise, the populist or the nationalist versus the Establishment and the Oligarchy.  This is a collision, a titanic collision of an immovable object with an unstoppable force, and they’re colliding here [in 2016].  This is just the beginning of things to come, folks!

I know you are aware of this, Mark, but I’m just talking here to your audience here.  It’s just the beginning….and you haven’t seen nothing yet.  This is just a prelude.  And I proved this out in my Mundane Astrology class. My students have recently come to understand the rules [of analysis] behind ingress charts, eclipses, and other mundane [astrology] rules. I asked them if you just look at [and apply] the rules and assume nothing else, does it tell you that the party in power or the establishment in power, [minus the oligarchical dimension behind who is really running the government,] will remain or stay in power?  Is that likely, more or less?  And most everyone in class was in general agreement, stating “yeah, you’re right, I hate to say it,” but it looks like the party in power or the [party that is the] facade of the establishment is NOT likely to stay in power. Now having said that, does that mean that Trump instantly wins?  No, it doesn’t.  But it means that right from the outset the party in power – the Democrats had a structural problem, from a mundane perspective.  A structural problem.

Mark:  Yeah, right, right, I agree because it was going back to the 2008 elections which was, I believe shortly after, I think Uranus had just entered Aries if I’m not mistaken, and so it was kind of obvious who the Uranian candidate was at that point.

William:  Yeah, and the other thing too is that the Civil Rights Movement occurred in the 1960s.  From ’62 to ’72 the Civil Rights Movement really unfolded and was one of the game-changing socio-political developments in the nation.  And that had to do with the Uranus-Pluto conjunction, and then [in 2008] you had the approaching Uranus-Pluto square and the rise of Barack Obama who as a black candidate who was born during the emergence of the Uranus-Pluto conjunction and was an ideal expression for that Uranus-Pluto energy that began to manifest in 2008.

But unfortunately he didn’t quite live up to the energy. I mean, he got the job, he got the position because of the energy that was constellating for hope and change you can believe in, right, but it didn’t quite turn out that way.  In fact, I would say that — and again this is going to upset a lot of people — that Barack Obama is essentially an establishment candidate, and establishment president who had the backing and the support of America’s Oligarchical Elite. Also, he carries out that oligarchical agenda that essentially sets the policy for this nation and other nations abroad, domestically, internationally, and financially. And he basically rubber stamps their globalist agenda into policy, and he is really no different than his predecessor G.W. Bush.

Mark:  Yeah, I have to agree with that.  And you’re right, that’s probably going to ruffle a lot of feathers and I’ve gotten into many discussions like that.  But the thing that I look at is, regardless of what party is in power, does the advancement of the One State, the oligarchy agenda keep moving forward?  I mean, Obama said he would get rid of NAFTA.  I, until recently, had to cover the local newspaper right before the 2008 election he was here in Columbus, Ohio, where I was, and his main topic was getting rid of NAFTA.  And now eight years later, not only have we not gotten rid of NAFTA, but now we’re going to cram the TPP down people’s throats.

So, it just doesn’t, nothing ever goes in our favor.  It always goes towards the One World Government and no matter who the president is or who the candidates are or what they look like of where they’re from or what creed or nationality, whoever gets in there advances that agenda.

William:  Correct.  I totally agree.  It’s certainly been that case since the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which was basically a coup d’état for all intents and purposes, and that’s pretty much been proven out [in a Congressional Investigation in the 1970s] that there was a conspiracy, and it was never followed up and investigated with.

But what we see now with this Uranus-Pluto still very active, that is the rise of a dark horse candidate which, as you know, that a majority of the mundane astrology world and most of the astrology world in general just refuses to come to terms with.  And it has to do with Trump’s brazen style and character.

In fact, I was joking around for a long time using the term “Trumpzilla” because whoever gets in his way, he just seems to pulverize them [with his “atomic breath”]. In fact, the harder the media hits him, the stronger he gets in the polls.  In fact, [recently] CNN jokingly pushed up an image of Godzilla with Trump, calling him “Trumpzilla”. I took a snapshot and posted it.

Mark:  I saw that.

Trumpzilla | William Stickevers, Astrologer | Astrology and Politics

William:  Yeah.  And so, I’ve been calling him Trumpzilla and I’ve been writing “Trumpzilla is the Uranus-Pluto dark horse candidate that the astrology world refuses to come to terms with” and needs to wake up about.  They really need to wake up to the reality of what Trump represents.

I’m not talking about Donald Trump the Candidate and what he says.  I’m talking about the impact he’s having and how he is constellating by activating the suppressed rage in the country on a collective level, which has reached a neurotic level of intensity, bordering on psychosis, as the archetypal energy continues to change, accelerate, and intensify.  Trump is playing this out perfectly.  He’s breaking every [political] rule.  The more outrageous he is — meaning, the he continues proposing extreme solutions, which was very Uranus-Pluto, the stronger his support gets. We knew Bernie was doing that as well, but Trump takes the cake.

Also, you’ve got to realize too, folks — and I’m going to remind everyone listening here, because we just take the assumption that Trump was going to be the nominee so what’s the big deal?”  Right? In fact, that is not that’s not the case at all.  Keep in mind that when Trumpzilla announced he was going to run for president, almost every political pundit and almost every astrologer for that matter, stated that he would politically implode and fade away and kept stating that all the way into mid-March.  You know what I’m talking about, Mark, right?

Mark:  Yep, absolutely.  And even, I mean, it was so crazy even I wasn’t quite sure.  I was like, “Is this going to end at some point?”  But you’re right, you kept just moving forward with “you guys aren’t looking at the energy, you’re trying to force your preconceived notions” — which I was doing a little bit too, and as the groundswell kept happening, I thought “Oh my gosh, William’s right; he’s tapped into this.”


William:  Well, let me finish this because I just wanted your confirmation because some people think I just make this up and I’m trying to grand stand and pat myself on the back.  And you know that’s not the case, because I know you’ve been following my work and I’m really very grateful that I’m here to speak on your show about it.

The thing is that when Trumpzilla started piling up the victories in the primaries, the very same pundits and astrologers stated he would never get the GOP nomination.  And I remember the astrologers saying, “Okay, William, you were right this time, BUT he’s never going to get the nomination, they’ll never give it to him, they’re going to break the rules, they’re going to rob him, [and besides] he’ll never get the delegates.”  And then when Trumpzilla won the GOP nomination, many of his critics warned that if he ended up on the November ballot he would get blown out by Hillary Clinton and take out scores of Republicans running for the House and Senate with him, meaning it would be a complete disaster on the ticket.  In fact, just the other day, the great political forecaster Damon Linker, a senior correspondent at, along with several other astrologers who were loosely quoting from him said, “Trump isn’t merely going to lose; he’s going to lose in the biggest popular vote landslide in modern presidential history. It’s not crazy to even think he will finish with less than 35 percent of the popular vote.”

And then you had astrologers pushing that around.  This was just a week or two ago.  And the fact of the matter is that we do have enough raw political data coming in statistically on how Trump has been doing.  I’m not just talking about national polls; I’m talking at the local level in all the key battleground states.  And not just the key battleground states, in the key battleground counties of those battleground states.  And to the surprise of many, especially in Washington, and to the shock of the astrologers, he is hasn’t been doing badly at all.  In fact, he is doing pretty well because the polls are showing he is now slightly ahead in the battleground states of Ohio, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Colorado, and he’s tied with Hillary as of today in Nevada.  He was slightly ahead a week ago; he’s now tied but he’s holding his own.  And he just left Nevada on a two-day tour there.

Keep in mind, Trump should be getting killed in these states, and Hillary should be — at this point with the money, the ads, the backing of the oligarchy backing, CNN (the “Clinton News Network”) and the entire legacy mainstream media  — she should be 50 points ahead of him at this point!


You know, even recent polls have shown Trump now pulling ahead.  He’s basically tied and pulling ahead in Pennsylvania.  He’s even with her in New Hampshire.  He’s tied with her in Virginia.  He pulled slightly ahead in Colorado.  But Pennsylvania is a state that Hillary Clinton needs to win.  In all the key battleground counties that have the most accurate trend prediction rate all show Trump ahead by 8-12 points, not one point.

So, it just doesn’t make sense [that Hillary is winning].  I mean, you’re talking about Michigan here. Trump is one point behind in Michigan, tied in Wisconsin.  He’s only four points behind in New Mexico.

I mean, look, folks, it is clear that the astrological community, the pundits, the media have overestimated Hillary’s campaign and tremendously marginalized and underestimated Trump’s campaign thus far.  And nobody has really been talking about this.

Mark:  I agree.  I figured she would be way ahead at this point and I have something that I’ve talked about a couple of the other shows that you’ve been on and a couple other shows I’ve been on.  There’s just been this tendency to write off — and first of all, I’m going to say I have no intention of voting for Trump, I am not a Trump supporter, I tend to vote third party, every election since I’ve been alive I think I’ve voted third party — but it’s just this rush to judgement to write off all of his followers as white trash, racist, trailer park dwellers.  And perhaps there is, there may be a percentage, as politically incorrect as that is, there may be a percentage that maybe fit that category.

But what I keep telling my Democrat friends is that what you are not seeing is you have to put yourself in the shoes of people who have been Republicans for a long time.  You have to take a look at Romney, who took a dive at the end.  They threw in McCain in ’08, that flip-flopped so many times that you couldn’t trust him.  In ’04 that was Bush Jr.’s second term, and he barely won but by half that second term most of the Republicans, old school or not, were not very happy with him.  Bush Jr. won in 2000, Dole in ’96 — I don’t think anybody feels that Dole was a strong candidate.  Then we had Bush Sr. who won in ’88 and got beaten fairly badly in ’92.

So, for the people who are Republicans, I don’t think that they feel — and I’ve said this 50 times and I know everyone has ignored it the first 50 times but I’m going to be that idiot who says it a 51st time — I don’t think the old school, the average middle-class Republican voter feels that they have gotten a fair shake or had a decent candidate in the last seven elections, since, I’ll go back to say since Reagan was the last candidate that was really well liked by the Republican party.  I think Bush the first time it was kind of a “oh, well, he’s [Bush] Sr.’s son” and all that stuff, and there’s this, I think, a large group of Trump supporters are these people who have said “I have had enough of getting screwed” — not by the Democrats, they’re not pissed off at the Democrats.  They’re pissed off at their own party for putting up crap candidates every four years, and the decent candidates that they do have early on in the primaries, they push them to the side when they have a Ron Paul or somebody who is a good candidate, they just put them to the side at the debates, ask them two questions in a three-hour debate, all this stuff.  And I think a portion of Trump’s supporters are the people who have finally said, “I’ve had it. You’ve screwed me for seven or eight elections in a row, and we’re going to sink the Titanic so that hopefully we can rebuild it” because the Republican party leaders were not at all in any shape or form listening to their constituents.  And I’m sure no one heard that.  But I said it again anyways.

William: (laughs) Well, here’s the thing.  Let’s get into the particulars.  Mark, I sent you a link where I posted the charts for this show.  [Charts posted below] And for those of you who are not in front of the internet just to let you know, it’s and it has all the graphs I want to discuss.

My approach, my argument on how I see the election going down, I’m looking at all three different [birth] times for Hillary using my Blackbox forecasting technology that’s very accurate.  We use it quite often in making financial trading decisions and investing.  It’s one of the great technologies that Alphee Lavoie needs to get more credit for.

I also just want to mention this before, I have to say this.  Trump is not a Republican.  I mean, he’s running on the platform of the Republican party but everybody knows he is not a Republican.  He is basically a Trumpzilla, Uranus-Pluto dark horse candidate, an aberration of the collective unconscious of the nation that is now in a neurotic breakdown that has captured or heisted the nomination from the GOP establishment (that is basically backed by the Bush faction of the American oligarchical elite) who is basically have a platform and foreign policy that goes actually counter to a majority of GOP narratives that were established for the past 60 years.

So I just want to state again, I’m neutral on this all.  I am nonpartisan.  I am not for either party.  But Trump is GOP in title only.

Mark: Right, right.  So I just posted that link to William’s website to the page that has these charts and graphs he’s talking about.  I just posted it in the chat room and on my Facebook page and I’ll post it on the Rabbit Hole Facebook page as well so you don’t have to go digging for them you can just click on that link.

So, go right ahead, William.

William:  Yeah, so basically, everyone is like “I don’t get it. Why does Trump have all this, what is the demand there?  What is all this popularity?  Why do they listen to him?”  And I keep basically stating this — that we never had an economic recovery.  That was basically, the economic crisis, the Lehman meltdown that resulted in the near-collapse of the American and global economy but that was vanguard by the fraudulence that was going on Wall Street and the Fed backed by Washington, with Washington’s blessings, almost destroyed the financial world.


They basically paved it over and they covered it up.  They put the damage control into place and they kept the game of “extend and pretend” going.  Then they got the media who is part of the oligarchical mouthpiece to pontificate and convince, especially the astrologers out there, that a recovery occurred starting June 2009 and had been achieved by [Spring] 2016.  However, when we look at macroeconomic data, especially global trade worldwide, we see on this graph here [shown above] that we’ve are seeing a complete collapse. The source for the graph is from the World Bank, Goldman Sachs, Global Investment Research.  These are the very people that backed the Bushes, and Hillary, by the way.

So what we’ve seen is a four-year rolling sensitivity of real trade growth collapsing in real GDP terms.  And we see here the U.S. recession where there was a downturn, a trough, in 1960-61.  The oil shock in ’79.  And then we see when the Soviet Union disintegrates in ’91, you see the global economy really taking off and everything peaking by the late ’90s, early 2000.  And then we see a series of downward motion of the wave pattern.  Then we see China’s entry into the World Trade Organization, 2001.  And then we have a collapse that occurred in 2008, and then we see all this money printing and injection of liquidity into the system, with interest rates pushed down to almost zero percent worldwide.  In fact, now they’re negative worldwide with the exception of this country, and the Federal Reserve is talking about even going negative next year!  What you are seeing here is the Obama Recovery in 2016, at a point lower than at any time since 1947 when they started tracking Global Trade.

So [in essence] we are seeing a complete collapse in the global economy.  And there was no recovery — there was a cover-up.

Now I could show 40, 50 graphs to prove this out further. Mark, [in previous shows] you’ve seen me go at it one graph after the other. We have 25 percent underemployment in this country.  We have 47 percent of the people who get subsidized by the U.S. government who don’t pay federal taxes.  We have 96.7 million people who no longer get unemployment who fell off the workforce radar; they’ve given up looking for work.  And we only have 155 million people working out of a population of 327 million — or 320 million, depending on what source you use.  And of that 155 million working, 25 percent is underemployed, meaning they have to work two or three jobs and they still cannot pay the mortgage, and they’re barely paying the rent.


And inflation, by the way, they keep saying it’s 1-2 percent.  When you look at the real numbers, the way the Federal Reserve was calculating inflation up until 1990, inflation is about 7-8 percent a year.  And it was actually 11 percent between 2008 and 2012.

Salaries haven’t been raised since 1991.  The United States economy has decreased in size three-fold since 199, a three-fold breakdown!  The deleveraging of the middle class since 2008 has been tremendous.  It hasn’t recovered.

And you have 40 percent of Millennials living at home, and the ones who are not living at home are all shacked up with five other people in a two-bedroom.

So, you know, things are not going well. For anyone who’s still a naysayer [that the economy hasn’t recovered], I can inundate you with 27 statistics that will blow your mind.


But here’s the point — all of this is driving the Trump campaign.  The country is in a demoralized state, and in a state of neurotic breakdown because there was no direction, no future.  The moment when people freak out on a personal or mass level is when they know it’s not going to get better.  It’s not when things are bad.  The moment they know it’s not going to get better when THEY LOSE IT, and that’s when you see what’s happening now.  That’s when you see Hitler come to power.  That’s when you see the British Exit.  That’s when you see the rise of Donald Trump, Trumpzilla.  That’s all because it’s being generated by a collapsing economy that is accelerating and intensifying as the train wreck unfolds.

I think it’s really really clear at this point.  And there’s no magic [to fix it]. It’s all in the secular data.  And that is something that 90 percent of the astrologers keep continuing to overlook, as they keep focused at the natal horoscopes and not realizing what else is there – they don’t look at the secular data.

If you don’t correlate what the outer planetary alignments and the ingresses and the eclipse charts and the charts of the top G-11 or G-8 nations, with the secular trends you’re not going to understand what is driving the populism since 2011, since we had the Arab Spring.  And look at all the protests that were occurring in Europe.

And look at the protests on Wall Street, what was it called?  We would talk about this a few years back.


Mark:  The Occupy Movement.

William:  Right – the Occupy Wall Street Movement, where what came out of the was the One Percent and the 99 Percent.  So everyone knows today, “Yeah, I’m the 99 percent.”  And who’s the One Percent?  Well, that’s a mystery; you can’t talk about that.  We know how many people are the One Percent, but we don’t know who they are.  And that’s the oligarchy.  And the people that run the oligarchy are the 0.1 percent of the One Percent.


Then [in 2013] you have the NSA revelations of Edward Snowden that came out that have turned the geopolitical world inside-out, upside-down.  And there’s more revelations every day.  And then you have Wikileaks, along with all the uprisings and shootings [in the country]. It goes on and on.  The unemployment continues to accelerate while they continue to state that unemployment is now at four percent.  That is why you have a Donald Trump [as the GOP nominee ] today, folks.

So, astrologers, get with the reality!  You just don’t seem to get it!  I’m not the only guy.  Mark’s been telling you, I’ve been telling you, Theodore White’s been telling you  There’s been a lot of astrologers telling you, and you’re just simply refusing to get it.  So that’s step one.  I want to get to the next thing.


Look at what’s going on right now.  The S&P 500 return of the presidential elections.  So when the S&P 500 price between July 31 and October 31 is net negative, that is a very reliable indicator that the party in power, seeking re-election, will lose or they’ll be completely replaced.  And as of today, it is net negative.  Back in 2012, it was a very close race between Obama and Romney.  But the S&P returns were 2.4 percent in the black.  Now it is something like 3.2 percent in the red.  And so the prediction probability that the party in power will be completely replaced — because this is not a re-election, this is a referendum election on the Obama Administration’s past two terms so it’s a replacement election — is 86 percent right now.  And we’re not even talking about astrology yet. Eighty-six percent!  There’s a structural problem right now from an economic level, from a financial level as well.  So when the astrologers say ‘Hillary wins no matter what and they get to say that and pontificate that because they write for the Huffington Post’ — and you know who I’m talking about here — they continue to misinform the public and the astrological community [about the true state of affairs in the country].

Mark:  I totally agree.  Totally agree.  I’ve seen just in my personal circle, you know, extended family and stuff, I’ve seen the employment and wage-earning been way down.  And I want to point out that I don’t think this is an Obama trick or something.  I mean, every president who’s been in power during difficult financial times has, you know, we can spin numbers to make things look not as bad, so they all do this, but there’s definitely a lot of spinning going on right now.

William:  Absolutely.  I think what’s really been pontificated by the mainstream media is this: Keep calm and pretend everything is okay.  I’m going to repeat that.  Keep calm and pretend everything is okay.  And I think that fits perfectly with the Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune T-Square that was in play all throughout the summer —

Mark:  Yep.

William:  Nothing was okay.  Everyone knows something is really wrong.  They may point to it’s this or it’s that.  We may not all agree on what’s wrong but we all know something is systemically wrong.  And yet we have a media that says “Keep calm and pretend everything is okay.”  We have people in leadership in astrology who say “Keep calm, relax, Trump ain’t gonna win, he’s not going to get it, this is all just a kabuki dance going on, and you’ll realize sooner or later that everything is okay. So calm down and listen to this voice of reason.”

Mark:  (laughs)

William:  Okay, there’re some New York astrologers out there who are saying this.

Mark:  Right.

William:  And when you live on a trust fund and then you get to speak how it’s all going to turn out from your NCGR podium in New York City, you can say stuff like that.  But you can’t say stuff like that to people who are really suffering.  And then I want to get to the next thing here.

Now, I’m just getting really sick and tired of this Hillary Clinton birth time thing.  So I just said, okay.  I’ve held back, Mark. I could have published this earlier but I waited for your show.

Mark:  (laughs)  Okay, great.

William:  This Blackbox graphical analysis takes all the transits active during a period of time, and  takes over 720 factors that are related to career. Including every solar arc, every progression and every backward transit.  It [essentially] takes every astrological factor and then runs it against a weighing system that modifies and changes according to the [planetary weight] that compose the horoscope and then it curves and fits it and then it makes a projection over time.  And what I did here is I took the three times that are listed that most astrologers are basing their predictions on — the 2:18am birth time, the 8:02am birth time, and the 8:00pm birth time.

Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 2:18 am CST birth time.
Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 2:18 am CST birth time.

Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 2:18 am CST birth time.
Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 8:02 am CST birth time.
Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 8:02 am CST birth time.

Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 8:02 am CST birth time.


Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 8:00 pm CST birth time.
Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 8:00 pm CST birth time.

Hillary Clinton Horoscope: 8:00 pm CST birth time.


And I’m going to tell you something right now.  All three are indicating that Hillary is losing support as we go further into the election.  Basically what I can say that is consistent about all of these graphs is that she peaks sometime around, between October 1st and October 10th, and then it’s a downward slide.  And for the astrologers who are rooting for their time [of choice], her 2:18am time looks more of like a landslide loss.  If she was born at 8:00 pm, which Bill Meridian has been using to a fair degree of success, it’s a loss but it’s not quite the loss that is indicated.  You could argue that it could be a very close election, that it could go either way.  And the 8:02 am time — and I know some people use 8:06am — certainly indicates a decisive defeat for Hillary Clinton.  All three.  The only one that really supports, that it might be a close election, is the 8:00 pm time, but it does not augur a decisive victory as astrologers continue to pontificate.

Donald Trump's Career Blackbox Forecast
Donald Trump’s Career Blackbox Forecast

Here  we see Donald Trump’s Career Blackbox Forecast.  And that’s taking the same factors, using the same technology, using the same timeline.  We see Trump going enormous volatile swings from July all the way ’til it hits bottom on the 10th of September, and then he starts climbing up.  It’s a slow climb and then it really starts picking up speed from October 20th all the way to Election Day.  So we’re seeing a lot of volatility, up and down, up and down, which is Trump’s number, Trump’s campaign has gone through extremes of restructuring and shifting people around, with him going back and forth on policy positions.  And then he gets on message, as he has recently, starting around September 10th, and that accelerated his campaign.  You can see he’s now reading from a teleprompter, he still goes off and says what he wants but he’s much better behaved.  He’s a much better behaved Trumpzilla.

Webinar Hosted by NCGR San Francisco: “Political Contest Astrology: 2016 General Election by William Stickevers”

If you’re interested in learning more about the political contest horary technique I used to predict the 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Elections with 87% accuracy, I hope you’ll join me on this webinar hosted by the San Francisco Chapter of National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR). All registrants will get a recording of the presentation.  Details below.

From NCGR San Francisco:

Join us for our very first WEBINAR, from the comfort of your very own home, from AROUND THE WORLD! 🌏🌍🌎

“Political Contest Astrology: 2016 General Election”
William Stickevers (via Webinar)
Saturday, October 22
11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

NCGR San Francisco Webinar Event:

SPECIAL OFFER: Register for the event and you’ll receive a RECORDING of the lecture whether you attend live or not! 🔊

There are many methods in astrology to predict the outcomes of political elections, however, the track record of accuracy using many of those methods is often no better than tossing a coin.

William’s approach-based traditional horary technique has over an 80% accurate track record since 2007. In this webinar we will take astrological divination to a new level in predicting political contests through a step-by-step approach to determining the proper odds, polls, and rules to delineate a contest horary chart.

We will review some “too-close to call” elections and then speculate on the 2016 Presidential Election using this method.

A counseling astrologer since 1990, mostly in New York City and now in San Francisco, WILLIAM STICKEVERS is well versed in Psychological, Horary, Electional, Medieval, and Renaissance branches of astrology. He worked with Alphee Lavoie of the Astrological Institute of Research (AIR). William’s also certified in Astro*Carto*Graphy.

He’s lectured for the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NYC, Long Island, New Jersey, and San Francisco chapters), American Federation of Astrologers (Los Angeles), the Astrological Society of Connecticut, and in Germany (Munich), Romania (Bucharest), and Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama). Most recently William was invited by Kepler College to be part of a webinar panel of 5 select astrologers to discuss the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election and all other geopolitical and societal factors leading up to it.

[Webinar] Global Outlook 2017 based on the Planetary Cyclic Index and Leading Mundane Astrology Indicators

With all the highly improbable, implausible, unprecedented “how could that have happened” events that have transpired thus far on the world stage in 2016, you can be assured that 2017 will be no different — actually, there will be even more topsy-turvy geopolitical events as the great unraveling continues to accelerate and intensify.

If you think 2017 is going to be the same but only slightly worse, think again!

I invite you to join me for my upcoming webinar, Global Outlook 2017 based on the Planetary Cyclic Index and Leading Mundane Astrology Indicators to get a first look at what is in store for next year for the U.S., the top power countries, and on the world stage.  The webinar will take place live on two dates (December 31 and January 1) and there will be a video recording option for those who wish to watch the presentation but cannot attend one of the live events.

Live Webinar: Global Outlook 2017 based on the Planetary Cyclic Index and Leading Mundane Astrology Indicators
In the webinar, I will cover:

  • First Term of the Next U.S. President
  • What is the Planetary Cyclic Index
  • Assessment of the Global Ambient
  • Horoscope of the Next U.S. Administration
  • Significant Eclipses 2017-2020
  • Ingress Charts – most significant ingress charts for China, US, Europe, Russia
  • Outer Planetary Alignments to the Geodetic World Map
  • Astro*Carto*Graphy Charts and Geodetic Maps for Significant Mundane Events
  • Review the Impact to Financial 1st Trade Index Horoscopes
  • Blackbox Forecast for Top 10 Major Power Countries
  • Trouble Zones – 5 Biggest Time Bombs that the World Will Have to Deal With

It is imperative to be aware of what is taking place in the world, for these events will impact you, your nation’s economy, your finances, your community, and the decisions you may need to make since the economic sands can shift dramatically with a single decision by the government or major financial institution as we saw in 2008.

Registration is now open. Be sure to register early, as space is limited.  Early Bird registration ends November 1st (but all registrants can receive the free gift offer).

While my research is based in astrology, knowledge of astrology is not required to benefit from this presentation. Invite your astrologer and non-astrologer friends alike.


Be aware of what is around the corner so you can make informed choices to help yourself, your family, and others.  I hope you’ll join me.

Hillary’s Debate Performance Was Not Good Enough to Stop Her Slide in the Polls

Unlike many astrologers out there, I track the incoming raw polling data from all the Key Battleground States (sorry, but New York and California are on among them). Since late August Hillary’s poll numbers have plummeted around 9-10 points with Trump reaching parity with her by September 16th, indicating her campaign has lost its footing and momentum and needed a jolt from this debate.

Hillary, the favorite to win the General Election, had all the pressure on her and needed a big, defining moment last night to game-change her campaign, and didn’t get it. As of today, she now trails Trump in key battleground states won by President Obama in 2012, and the national polling is tied. Even though the mainstream media has scored a win for Hillary, keep in mind that Trump is the outsider in a year when two-thirds (69%) of the American people think the nation is on the wrong track.

Trump fared better than Hillary in most every online poll across the web. Out of more than 30 websites, Hillary only won in the NBC News, WCVB (Boston), and the CNN/ORC polls.

Hillary Clinton’s Career Blackbox, August 1 – November 9, 2016

The bottom line is Hillary’s campaign is rapidly losing altitude, a fact that her supporters are aware of, and even the press can no longer deny. The trend lines are not in her favor, and she doesn’t have the luxury of a good economy to run on, nor the astrological transits to her natal horoscope for that matter. If Hillary’s performance is not good enough to stop Trump’s momentum in the coming days ahead, something needs to change, and change fast.

Prediction: Trump’s momentum will continue to accelerate and intensify, with his poll numbers in the Key Battle Ground States of Pennsylvania and Virginia superseding Hillary’s in the coming weeks ahead.

Trump’s Critics Need to Wake Up to the Reality of 2016

Keep in mind that when Donald Trump announced he would run for President, almost every political pundit and most every astrologer out there for that matter, stated he would politically implode and fade away by the time of the Iowa Caucus.

Then when Trump started piling up the victories in the primaries, the same pundits and astrologers stated he would never get the GOP nomination. Then when Trump won the GOP nomination many of his critics warned that if he ended up on the November ballot he would get blown out by Hillary Clinton and take out scores of Republicans running for the House and Senate with him. In fact just the other day, the great political forecaster Damon Linker a senior correspondent at (that several mundane forecasting astrologers have loosely quoted from) said,

“Trump isn’t merely going to lose. He’s going to lose in the biggest popular vote landslide in modern presidential history. … It’s not crazy to think he’ll finish with less than 35 percent of the popular vote.”

The fact of the matter is that we now have enough raw polling data that statistically shows how Trump is doing right now – and, to the surprise of many inside the D.C. Beltway, he’s doing shockingly better then they ever thought possible. In fact he is not doing that bad at all.

Since the recent Jupiter in Libra Ingress on September 9th, polls show Trump pulling ahead in the battleground states of Ohio, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Colorado and Nevada. Former GOP nominees John McCain and Mitt Romney lost all of these states in 2008 and 2012, with the exception of North Carolina in 2012.

If his numbers hold, Trump is only a state or two away from cobbling together the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House; and there’s fertile ground for more Trump pickups all over the map with New Hampshire, and Virginia .

Map of the AstroProbability Projections for the 2016 Presidential Election as of Septeber 19, 2016. More at ASTROLOGY AND POLITICS: 2016 U.S. PRESIDENTIAL GENERAL ELECTION PREDICTIONS

In many purple states where Hillary Clinton is leading, Trump is running way ahead of where Romney was in 2012: in Maine, Trump is besting Romney’s numbers by seven points; in Michigan, it’s four points; in New Mexico and Wisconsin, it’s two points; and in Pennsylvania, it’s one point.

So, if you are going just by the numbers, there’s no question that Trump is a much stronger general election candidate than was Romney, and Clinton is a much weaker candidate then Obama.

The 1st Presidential debate at Hempstead, New York, is being held one day after a Washington Post-ABC News poll revealed that Clinton’s slim advantage over Trump from last month has completely evaporated. At any rate my message to the mainstream media pundits and the “Hillary wins no matter what” astrologers who continue to forecast a decisive Clinton victory,  is given these polling numbers, Trump’s unprecedented candidacy is not indicative of a forthcoming GOP ticket disaster. In fact, the only disaster that we’ve seen so far is the catastrophic collapse of all of the political pundits’ predictions, including most of the astrologers.

Edgar Cayce Natal Horoscope Rectification

Edgar Cayce in 1910
Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American Christian psychic, healer, spiritual teacher, and mystic, who answered questions on subjects as varied as healing, astrology, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while under a self-induced hypnotic trance. Other abilities that have been attributed to Cayce include astral projection, prophesying, mediumship, viewing the Akashic Records or “Book of Life”, and seeing auras. Cayce said he became interested in learning more about these subjects after he was informed about the content of his readings, which he reported that he never actually heard himself.  Biographer Jess Stearn gave him the nickname, “The Sleeping Prophet.”  A nonprofit organization, the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), was founded to facilitate the study of Cayce’s work. A hospital and a university were also established.

Cayce became a celebrity toward the end of his life, and he believed the publicity given to his prophecies overshadowed the more important parts of his work, such as healing the sick and studying religion. Today, a total of 14,306 of his readings are available at A.R.E. Cayce headquarters in Virginia Beach and an online member-only section along with background information, correspondence, and follow-up documentation. Historians now consider him the true founder and a principal source of the most characteristic beliefs of the American “New Age” Movement and modern Christian Mysticism.

Edgar Cayce’s Birth Time

Biographer Thomas Sugrue from “There is a River”,  quotes Cayce’s grandmother (p.59) “I heard the first squall you made at three o’clock exactly”, as his birth time. Report 4 reading 254-2 quotes a letter which Edgar Cayce wrote to Ms. 516 on September 16, 1935 which he states, “…I was born on March 18, 1877, in Hopkinsville, Christian County, Kentucky, at 1:30 o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. However, I have had several astrologers tell me it was impossible for me to have been born at that time, else I would have been a girl. But this is the actual record from my parents, the physician, and the birth certificate record…” Thus, according to Edgar Cayce’s own account, his birth certificate listed his time of birth as 1:30 PM. The kind of
time isn’t mentioned, but Local Mean Time (LMT) was observed cities-map-of-kentucky_hopkinsville_beverlybefore November 18, 1883. Also, Cayce’s location of birth is usually given as Hopkinsville, Kentucky, but the information on the
Cayce Readings CD-ROM published by A.R.E. says he was born on a farm near Beverly, Kentucky, about seven miles south of Hopkinsville.

In 1996, a rectification by astrologer William Stickevers, sponsored by the Edgar Cayce Center of Japan and under the advisory and oversight of Mark Thurston, Ph.D. using A.I.R. Rectification software module, resulted in a 1:10 PM LMT birth time based on the 28 documented events from Cayce’s historical biography.

Cayce’s General Characteristics

Earth and Water are Strong (F,E,A,W Scores = 1,18,0,30):

Cayce was a nurturer and a protector and prone to what has sometimes been referred to as the “Atlas Syndrome”, carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. He took his responsibilities to others very seriously and often took on more than his share of their troubles as well. Though he appeared (and indeed often was)

Cayce and his wife Gertrude

rather passive, he possessed much quiet inner strength and the ability to flow with, endure, and emerge again and again from life’s inevitable adversities. He was apt to be surrounded by people who relied and depended upon him, and though he derived much satisfaction from providing, giving, and being needed, he could also let himself be drained emotionally and/or financially by taking care of other people and not caring sufficiently for himself.

Cayce had a very strong need for security and was a “safety-first” creature, disinclined to make sudden changes or to take new directions which involve risk and unpredictability. Any break from the past was very difficult for him and he needed a great deal of support when trying to make even healthy and positive changes in his life or habits.

Cayce was very retentive. He held on to (sometimes clung to) the people, places, and ways which he was familiar with. He also tended to both hold in and hold on to feelings, and he may have needed to learn to express and let go of old feelings and past conditioning.

Physically, he was apt to be hearty and substantial, with a tendency to be stout. Unless other astrological factors indicate otherwise, Cayce could also be downright lazy, especially when it comes to exercise. He instinctively chose comfort over challenge. (This is true in a broader sense as well, not only regarding physical exercise).

Cayce’s strengths included depth of feeling, patience, and generosity. The qualities he needed to cultivate included initiative, openness to change and new experience, and a stronger sense of self.

Fire is Weak (F,E,A,W Scores = 1,18,0,30):

Cayce was likely to be overly humble or unsure of himself and to look to others for inspiration, motivation, reinforcement, and approval. Tending to be somewhat passive, it would’ve been recommended that he learn how to take initiative and motivate himself.

A lack of warmth (either physically, emotionally, or both) may have been evident in him, which can show itself physically as a low energy level, paleness and lack of color in the skin, or a tendency to be easily chilled, and emotionally as a marked coolness or aloofness with little spiritedness, joyfulness, or enthusiasm for living. Eating warming, spicy foods, living in a warm, sunny place, and using fire in your daily life (lighting candles, using a wood stove or fireplace for heat) would’ve helped to balance him. Also, spending time with warm, cheerful, positive-minded people and developing a philosophy based on spiritual optimism could have stirred up his own zest of life.

Positively, Cayce was unlikely to be egocentric and have a capacity for great patience and peacefulness.

Air is Weak (F,E,A,W Scores = 1,18,0,30):

Cayce tended to lack the ability to analyze himself or his life in a detached, objective way. He felt and experienced but did not necessarily understand or reflect upon his experience, and thus found it hard to communicate or talk about it. Really taking in what someone else has to say could be hard for him – he did not readily adapt to new ideas or people, and as a result may have become inflexible or limit your experience of life. A broadening education and exposure to different cultures and types of people would have been very beneficial to him. Otherwise he would’ve been apt to be rigid and even prejudiced against those outside his own circle. (Arthritic conditions, poor flexibility, or poor circulation may reflect this).

Cayce also tended to distrust people who are free with words or to feel inferior to those who are more articulate and intellectual than himself. He learned much more readily by watching, doing, or apprenticing than by reading or by being told about something.

Cayce’s Approach Life and How He Appeared To Others

The following is a description of Cayce’s basic stance towards life, the way others saw him, the way he came across, the face he showed to the world.

Cancer Rising:

Cayce appeared gentle and soft, and acted rather reserved with others until he knew them well and felt it was safe to be open with them. He had a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and were deeply attached to the past:

his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes

or moves away from what is known and safe could be very painful and difficult for Cayce. He tended to cling and hold on to people, memories, possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, was very important to him.

Cayce approached life emotionally and subjectively and was sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, he was often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something FELT right, or it didn’t.

Cayce’s emotions and personal loyalties tended to color his thoughts and opinions. He viewed life from a very personal perspective and often could not mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He was apt to be concerned primarily with how something affected him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may have been very patriotic and feel that whatever “my country” does is right without really knowing much about the other nation’s policies or point of view. Put simply: if it is good for me and mine, it is good. If it is not good for me and mine, it is no good.

He was tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cared about, and had a very strong nurturing, motherly nature (regardless of your gender). Cayce empathized with others and intuitively sensed the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he was easily moved by others’ pain, and was often the one others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.

Cayce’s moods fluctuated and changed frequently and he was sometimes open, sometimes withdrawn emotionally. He communicated non-verbally and appreciated a person who could pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.

He never forgot either kindness or unkindness shown to him.

Sun Trine Asc.:

Cayce radiated a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It was hard for others to ignore him when he was present, and his personality may have overshadowed or dominated the scene.

The Inner Self: Cayce’s Real Motivation

Ascendant in Cancer and Sun in Pisces:

In addition to Cayce’s strong personal loyalties and the devotion he felt for his nearest and dearest, he had great compassion and sensitivity to people of all walks of life. He had a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art styles and life styles.

His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude could have made him a victim of others’ greed.

At heart Cayce was very gentle, impressionable, and receptive -a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition were as real to him as anything in the outer world, though he may have had trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others could understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, Cayce had a rich inner life, though he may have seemed rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. He usually kept to himself.

Cayce had great sensitivity and empathy with others, and he often sensed things psychically or intuitively which proved to be correct. He was tolerant, forgiving, and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. He had deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and often felt others’ pain as if it were his own. He sympathized with the needy, the disadvantaged, the misfits of society. He was capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker, or minister. However, he tended to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. He had little sense of boundaries, of limits, of knowing when to say “no”. Moderation and self-discipline were not his strong points.

Cayce was a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tried to avoid open conflict. He would likely patiently ignore or “tune out” problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than directly confronting them, and he tended to lack the positive fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He was fluid, open, nonresistant, and somewhat passive. He did things in a subtle, often covert, manner.

His gifts also have lied in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he had a great sensitivity, inspiration, and limitless imagination. He likely responded very strongly to beauty and to love.

Cayce’s faults included a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than taking strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tended to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lived in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothered those around him more than it bothered him.

Sun in 9th house:

World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expanded his intellectual horizons and broadened his understanding of the world are very attractive to him.

Cayce had a philosophical turn of mind and was concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupied his mind much of the time.

Sun Square Jupiter:

Cayce had big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. He tended to exaggerate, to promise more than is possible, and to misjudge through being overly optimistic. However, he never lost his hopes for the future. Restlessness and discontent with responsibilities and limitations in life could be troublesome for him.

Sun Conjunct Mercury/MC:

He had a harmonious balance between your body, soul and spirit. He likely enjoyed intellectual challenges from others, but tended to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He was interested in studying human nature and matters of health.

Sun Conjunct Saturn/MC:

Cayce’s courage to face life seems to have been a bit on the low side and he was prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he chose.

Sun Conjunct N. Node/MC:

Maintaining contact with his friends and associates was very important to Cayce and he kept in touch with them through their shared interests. His friends were likely to be very supportive to him in everything he did.

Cayce’s Mental Interests and Abilities

Mercury in Pisces:

Cayce was more of a poet than a rational scientist, for his mind did not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art, or poetry was natural to him, and he was also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating his thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may have been difficult for him at times and consequently he may have appeared less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This would have been especially true of him as a child, and he probably daydreamed a good deal also. Cayce was intuitive and able to sense what others’ thoughts and feelings were, even before they said anything to him. He often formed an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions were usually correct. Cayce could be somewhat absent-minded and he became so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooked things in his immediate, tangible environment. He was extremely open-minded and believed that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seemed just as real to him as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and his sympathetic understanding of other people were two of his greatest gifts.

Mercury in 8th house:

The mysterious and the unknown fascinated him and he investigated the supernatural or something that is hidden or taboo. He needed to know what was going on behind the scenes. Cayce was also deeply curious about or astute about economic, political, or social power, big business, and the motives and powers behind the social facade.

Moon Sextile Mercury:

Cayce had talent for establishing rapport and communicating with people, great personnel skills, and he was adept at dealing with the public. He communicated concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encouraged people to open up and confide in him even if they do not know him well. He created closeness with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women felt he understood them.

Mercury Conjunct Venus:

He appreciated aesthetics and had a fine sense of form, design, and beauty. He could have developed considerable technical skill as an artist, designer, craftsman, or creative writer. Cayce could have also sold objects of beauty – artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.

Cayce had the ability to please and harmonize well with others and tend to ameliorate relationships between people. His sense of humor, tact, and personal charm were of great benefit to him in any work with people on a one-to-one level.

Mercury aspects Venus and Mars:

He could also be very direct, even brutally frank, in the way he communicated.

Mercury aspects Moon and Mars:

Cayce’s desire to make a point sometimes overrided his receptivity to others’ views. He could be a good listener but often it was hard for him not to speak out.

Mercury Sextile Mars:

Cayce had a sharp tongue and ready wit, and enjoyed intellectual competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, he knew how to drive his point home. Cayce also possessed quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between the players would have a suitable for him.

Mercury aspects Moon and Saturn:

Although he was perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue, he was also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Cayce combined the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Cayce had an introverted frame of mind and he tended to dissect or deeply analyze his own and other people’s inner lives and experiences.

Mercury Conjunct Saturn:

His mind was serious and deep, and he would always offer an opinion on any matter until he had thoroughly considered and studied it. Cayce had excellent powers of concentration and enjoyed studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Cayce had an aptitude for research or doing mental work which requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail, and a methodical approach. Cayce was conservative and something of a skeptic, and may have been narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there was no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, he was rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.

Mercury Conjunct Moon/Mars:

Cayce was impatient, a bit nervous and easily irritated. Although he was sensitive to criticism, he could also be insensitive to the feelings of others.

Mercury Conjunct Venus/N. Node:

Cayce had a strong desire to keep in contact with like-minded people and tended to discuss love problems with them. Cayce seemed to be especially drawn to children and young people and was always welcomed and appreciated by them.

Mercury Conjunct Jupiter/Pluto:

Cayce had the ability to influence others to his way of thinking and could have done well in a propaganda campaign. Cayce thought in big dimensions and had a gift for speaking. Cayce was interested in subjects that encompassed a larger view of the world.

Mercury Conjunct Saturn/N. Node:

Cayce formed his own conclusion about things and may have had some difficulty in exchanging his thoughts and ideas with others, although they regarded his ideas as having a good foundation. Most of his conversations tended to have a serious overtone.

Cayce’s Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance

Moon in Taurus:

Cayce was even-tempered and peace-loving, he was not easily ruffled or given to emotional displays. Cayce had a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and not easily provoked, he was tremendously stubborn and will resist any change which requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in his home life or marriage.

Cayce sought security and loyalty in love, was extremely devoted to his loved ones, and provided a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, he tended to cling and seek to keep others from changing.

A great deal of physical affection, closeness, and touching was essential to his well-being, and he had a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times he substituted food for emotional comfort and love.

Moon in 10th house:

Cayce worked well with the public and had an instinct for what the public wanted and would respond to. Having a “nest” was not especially important to him, and he may have invested more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. Providing for and caring for others in a professional capacity was very likely.

Moon Trine Mars:

Cayce was assertive and confront difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. Cayce could not tolerate self-pity or passivity, and he could be rather brusque with others’ emotional problems. “Stop crying and DO something about it” might have been his motto.

Moon aspects Mars and Saturn:

Although he could get hot under the collar rather easily, he also had a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure which enabled him to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies.

Moon Sextile Saturn:

Cayce was dedicated to the people he cared about and conscientious about meeting his responsibilities, especially to family. Family solidarity and cohesiveness were very important to him and so, therefore, were the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.

Cayce was apt to do more than his fair share in the family, to go the extra mile, but this was satisfying rather than burdensome to him for the most part.

Venus in Pisces:

Tremendously soft-hearted and sympathetic, he gave very selflessly and devotedly to those he loved and often allowed others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, he may have become romantically involved with someone because they needed love and he wanted to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.

Cayce was drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls -poets, musicians, dreamers – or to someone he felt he could have a deep spiritual relationship with. Cayce idealized love and had a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love could be.

Venus in 8th house:

Cayce craved very intense, deep, emotional relationships, and would even prefer a stormy, tumultuous relationship to one which is smooth but lacking vitality and passion. Cayce loved wholeheartedly and expected all-consuming, total devotion and attention from his partner. Casual, light relationships held no appeal for him.

Venus Conjunct Saturn:

Intimacy did not come easily to him and he may have appeared cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, he did not trust others very easily and it took a long time to take down all of his barriers and defenses. Cayce may have felt that he had few friends or people that really cared about him.

Venus Conjunct Mars/Pluto:

Cayce had a very erotic and sexual nature and often may have found himself drawn to another person by a kind of inner compulsion. Cayce could become quite obsessed by someone and had a tendency to control and manipulate his loved ones.

Cayce’s Drive and Ambition: How He Achieved His Goals

Mars in Capricorn:

Cayce was serious about his ambitions, and disciplined, dedicated, and tenacious in pursuing his objectives. His drive and energy was directed toward practical material accomplishment and achieving concrete results. Cayce also strived to be in a position of authority and social influence; he enjoyed being the person who is in command.

Cayce was hard-working and capable of foregoing immediate comfort in order to achieve his long-range goals. Cayce could easily become a workaholic and was very responsible and conscientious about doing a thorough job.

Realistic and pragmatic, he was an excellent strategist. Cayce attained success by formulating a conservative and workable plan and following through with it. Cayce was not a gambler when it came to attaining his goals; he depended on his own efforts and perseverance rather than good fortune. Cayce had a natural shrewdness and instinct for business or organizational management.

Mars in 6th house:

Cayce expected to work hard for anything he accomplish and he had no patience for people who didn’t pull their own weight. Work was a passion for he at times, and he pushed himself too hard. Cayce could be too demanding of the people he worked with also.

If his energy was not invested in a job or career, he could become a fanatic about his health, and he may have exercised or “worked out” vigorously and perhaps excessively.

Mars Sextile Saturn:

Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, he accomplished a great deal through his dedication. Cayce was the person who followed through, quietly sustained the effort, and kept on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This was often the key to his success. However, he was humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not received the recognition or recompense he deserved.

Mars Square MC:

Cayce was intensely competitive, and may have engaged in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on his way to gaining his objectives. Cayce could be drawn to activities that were dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. Cayce put himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.

MC Conjunct Sun/Neptune:

Cayce was sensitive to everything around he and soaked up experiences like a sponge. Cayce needed to avoid becoming depressed when things did not go his way. Cayce also needed to overcome being somewhat timid and to build up his own self-image.

MC Opposition Jupiter/Asc.:

Cayce had a strong desire to acquire wealth and may had the good fortune to live in affluent circumstances. His pleasant and harmonious personality made him very popular, and he was like to have a large circle of friends.

Growth and Expansion: Areas That Cayce Enjoyed

Jupiter in Capricorn:

Cayce had an innate shrewdness, and the ability to develop a clear strategy and follow it carefully in order to reach his goals. Cayce also had a natural sense of order, structure, and self-discipline. Cayce was likely to excel, both because he was ambitious and because it is very important to he to do a professional job, no matter what field he was in, or how humble the task.

Jupiter in 6th house:

Cayce had a positive and constructive attitude toward work and what other people might consider drudgery. Cayce enjoyed helping people improve their lives, and the more service he rendered, the more benefits and rewards he found coming back to him. Promoting health in some manner was a very good avenue for him.

Jupiter Trine Neptune:

Cayce was very broad-minded and tolerant, and he had a rich, colorful imagination. Cayce did not struggle with life as much as most people; he was inclined to follow the path of least resistance.

Jupiter Opposition Moon/Uranus:

Cayce had good vision and foresight and his aspirations and objectives were likely to be aimed high. A certain element of luck seemed to surround him, and he was both lucky and successful in his enterprises.

Areas That Challenged Cayce Or Were Difficult For Him

Saturn in Pisces:

Cayce often had a sense of longing or homesickness for something he could not name or specify, and he may have had both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.

Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over-sensitivity was an important task for him.

Saturn in 8th house:

Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may have plagued him. Cayce strongly resisted changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which made them much harder for him.

On another level entirely, he was very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Cayce wanted to keep his own and other people’s property and assets very distinct.

Saturn Conjunct Mercury/Venus:

His attitude toward life was quite serious and he was very thorough. Cayce had the need to be by himself and think out everything very carefully before he take action. Cayce may have enjoyed doing some type of creative art work shaped from hard or heavy materials.

Saturn Conjunct Venus/N. Node:

Around others he was somewhat humble and shy and preferred to be by hismelf. Cayce tended to limit his contact with others and associate only with like-minded people. Cayce was inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those he loved.

Saturn Conjunct Jupiter/Pluto:

At times circumstances seemed to be pushing against him, and he may have had to withstand severe challenges. Cayce probably had to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning him hard and cold-hearted in his decisions because of it.

Unconcsious Patterns of Behavior Which Cayce Would Instinctively and Habitually Revert To When Under Stress

Node in Pisces:

Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion would have help counterbalance his deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he was apt to try to rigorously analyze and to focus on what needed to be corrected or improved, and he could easily become problem-oriented, losing sight of the big picture and of what is working.

Node in 8th house:

Cayce was most likely to wrestle with these issues in relationships that were more than superficial or casual – in particular where he and another had merged emotionally, legally, or financially. Cayce would have seen these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there was a mutual dependency on one another. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources was also a part of this.

Node Conjunct Mercury:

“Work smarter, not harder” might have been a motto for him.  Writing, teaching, recording, transcribing, dialoguing, negotiating, mediating, communicating, or facilitating clear communication would be significant activities for him to pursue.

Node Conjunct Venus:

Learning to give and receive affection, love, and pleasure would have been beneficial to Cayce. Learning to respond to, appreciate, and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. Being aware of aesthetics and doing things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Enjoying life, nurture friendships, and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.

Node Conjunct Saturn:

Developing self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility better would have benefitted Cayce. He shouldered an inordinate amount of responsibility and burdens which at times limit his activities and opportunities in life. This was a maturing and ultimately strengthening process, however. Cayce was also likely to be given positions of tremendous responsibility, whether he really wanted such job or not, usually because he had made real effort and some sort of substantial contribution.

There may have been considerable obstacles in his path – more adversity than others seem to face – and his task was to learn to understand pressure and persevere.

Node Conjunct Moon/Mars:

Cayce cooperated with others in a vigorous and energetic way. His motto seems to have been “one for all and all for one”, and he felt strongly connected with others. In fact, he looked upon other people as necessary for a worthwhile life.

Originality and Imagination

Areas Where Cayce Was Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive

Uranus in 1st house:

Cayce was an unconventional and innovative person, and he was seen as a rebel, reformer, or highly unusual in his manners, appearance, or attitudes. Cayce enjoyed being unpredictable, and he did not conform to the standards that other people had set. Above all, he was an individual, and he did what he pleased regardless of customs and norms. His environment and life circumstances may have changed frequently and abruptly.

Neptune in 10th house:

Cayce was a very idealistic person, and he want to see his ideals, hopes, and dreams made concrete and real in the everyday world. Cayce was driven to put his ideals into action.

When young he may have been rather aimless or confused about his place in the world. In early adult life it is likely that he struggled to find ways to express his imagination, fantasies, and ideals in his career. Work that involved compassionate service (such as medicine or the ministry) may be his calling. If he lacked personal integrity and honesty, he quickly went to the opposite extreme and he could con others through dishonesty and trickery. Music, art, film-making or entertainment was also areas in which he was well-suited.

Pluto in 11th house:

Cayce may have had a deep aversion to groups, associations, clubs, or organizations of any kind. Any such group he became involved in is likely to be either for intense personal growth, change, and healing, or centered around social change and revising society in some manner.

Neptune Conjunct Pluto/MC:

Cayce was inclined to be very imaginative and likely to have occasional clairvoyant visions. But he should beware of strange pursuits that could lead him on the wrong path and eventual disappointments.

Pluto Conjunct Venus/Asc.:

Cayce seemed to had a powerful influence on everyone and others was strongly attracted to him. Cayce had a great need for attention or flattery and may have been a bit fanatic in love. His love experiences were likely to be very deep and intense.

Generational Influences: Cayce’s Age Group

The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Cayce’s Age Group

Pluto in Taurus:

Cayce was part of a 30-year group of people who were highly motivated by practical concerns. There was a very strong psychological need to feel that there is a firm foundation and a solid basis for one’s life. There was an irresistible urge to make sure that the basics were taken care of and everything was built on a solid foundation. Consequently, his generation worked hard to improve the economy, ensure adequate food supplies, maintain and build roads and buildings, increase productivity, and develop other facilities that were essential foundations for a healthy, thriving economy.

There was a strong tendency to measure the value of something by its utilitarian value. For example, in education and research the emphasis was on ideas of practical value and there was little support for more purely theoretical research.

His generation was pragmatic and productive, and was driven by a need to build and DO things. This concern with practical affairs often becamesunbalanced, and a rampant materialism with little regard for humanitarian, ethical, and spiritual values often developed in his age group.

There was also a strong sensual craving in his age group, and a great deal of emphasis was placed on physically comfortable surroundings and good food. Romance was particularly important to his age group, and a great emphasis was also placed on the physical attractiveness of the opposite sex.

A small minority of members of his age group were likely to be uncomfortable with the practical and materialistic atmosphere of the times, and consequently became alienated and antagonistic towards the social norm.

Uranus Square Pluto:

Cayce was also born during a period that lasted approximately 7 years and was characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. Cayce was part of a group of people who could be agent provocateur for the counter cultural forces that demanded change and progress in society. Cayce did not tolerate being restricted by authority , and his age group rebelled with force and anger against oppressive situations.

The Ideals and Illusions of His Age Group

Neptune in Taurus:

Cayce was part of a 14-year group of people that was very practical and down-to-earth in their religious philosophy and spiritual outlook. His age group incorporated its ideals and visions into everyday life, and investd more time and energy than other generations did in beautification projects, developing parks and recreation areas, and preserving beautiful or unique natural wildlife areas. Building construction was also done with careful attention to the aesthetic quality, and his generation found it difficult to understand how other age groups could erect buildings with so little aesthetic appeal.

His age group did not speculate a great deal about spiritual and metaphysical matters. Cayce was more involved in utilizing his imagination and intuition in practical, artistic ways rather than exploring metaphysical issues. Some of the art and music of his generation is among the world’s most beautiful.

What is New and Different in Cayce’s Age Group

Uranus in Leo:

Cayce was part of a 7-year group of people who were unusually self-willed, and inwardly self-assurred. Cayce was part of a group that defied authority and insisted on having its own way. Parents and school teachers found that it was extremely difficult to discipline his age group. Governments that were repressive to individual expression and freedom met a great deal of resistance from his age group, and he tended to rise up against any form of tyranny and oppressive rule.

  • Learn directly from a world class mundane astrologer with an international clientele and an 87% accuracy record for the recent U.S. Presidential Primary Elections, who has been a counseling astrologer for 26 years and has lectured for the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NYC, Long Island, New Jersey, and San Francisco chapters), American Federation of Astrologers (Los Angeles), the Astrological Society of Connecticut, and in Germany (Munich), Romania (Bucharest), and throughout Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama), who most recently was invited by Kepler College to be part of a webinar panel of 5 select astrologers to discuss the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election and all other geopolitical and societal factors leading up to it.
To Get the Most Out of This Class
  • Make the decision to immerse yourself in the course. Be a mundane astrologer and put into practice what you learn.  Don’t just read the material to understand it. Putting what you learn into action is the first step towards mastery.
  • Join and participate in the private Facebook Group for the class.
  • Read and prepare for each class. Do your homework.

Q. I won’t be able to attend all of the 9 classes. Can I still take the class?
A. Yes, you can still take the class if you are not present for all class meetings, although you will get the most out of the class when you are present. Each student will receive a recording (screen capture – you will see everything presented in class) and PDFs from each class for review. If you cannot attend a class, send your questions to me and I will answer them at the beginning or end of class on the recording.

Q. I can’t use PayPal. Is there another way to register for the class?
A. Yes. Send me an email that you want to register and I will send you an invoice that will allow you to pay with a credit card (via Square payment processing).

Email me with any questions about this class.
