Mason Garrett interviews William Stickevers on February 26, 2017.

Mason Garrett:  The post-election stock market rallies continue with both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 reaching records highs in mid-February thus far.  The question is, how much higher?  With this momentum I’m seeing a probable 21,000 for the Dow Jones and 2400 for the S&P — and then what?

While I have predicted significant stock market drops in the past, they have yet to be the ‘Big One’. I still see a very possible 20 percent or more correction down this year … with stress transits beginning in April-May and then again from August through November. I’ve done charts for April 10th… another possible Black Monday …and the eclipse of August 21, which may have a significant downward effect on the stock markets.
new-moon-april-10th-2017Another tense Full Moon this year occurs on April 10, and that will trigger the Sun-Uranus Conjunction and the Moon-Jupiter Conjunction, and all of that squares brutal Pluto at the focal point of the ongoing T-Square, with a nasty little bundle of Lilith (ruling calamity), Black Moon Lilith (ruling treachery), Comet Lucifer, all conjunct the Vertex in the Fifth House … ruling stock markets, speculations….  Could this be a nasty stock market reversal day?

The Eclipse of August 21 may also be a very significant day in the financial markets.  We have Mercury in the Ninth House, the corporate/government-owned media, in opposition to Neptune in the Third House ruling communications media, at the Medium Coeli.  I see confusion, lies and propaganda with that aspect.  Then we have Jupiter square Pluto, the ongoing political power struggle.  And Pluto is in the Second House of money and value, perhaps a power struggle with the Federal Reserve?


Then we have Venus in the Eighth House of other people’s money, consumers, investors, in square to Uranus … shock, sudden separation from their money, and that in in square to Uranus in the Fifth House, perhaps the sudden shock to the speculative markets?  We shall see.

And now, I’d like to introduce to you a friend of mine and very good mundane astrologer, Mr. William Stickevers.  Financial astrology is one of his specialties.  He is also an IT engineer and he has got charts on everything.  So let’s have a little ‘go-to’ meeting with William.

Hello William!

William Stickevers:  Hello Mason.

MG:  You’ve seen my two charts, the April 10th and the Eclipse of August 21st.  I’m seeing these as very possible changes of direction in the markets, perhaps the big correction that everybody keeps looking for.  We keep hitting these maybe 1,000, 1,500 point drops, and then it rallies, makes it up and keeps right on going.  And we’re in record territory, but I really have uneasy feelings about this market, that it’s out of the blue going to shock everybody, and the question is, when?

WS:  Well, Mason, you bring up some really good points.  There are a lot of astrological mundane signatures that are coming into formation now, combined with the convergence of very perilous secular and financial indicators converging together that indicate we may see a top and destabilization of the markets between now and the end of the year.  And I think everyone knows we’re going to see some kind of correction.  The question is what type of correction, what level of intensity, and is this going to be the ‘big one’, or a prelude of things to come. Would you agree?
barbult-index-2011-2027MG:  Yeah.  Looking back historically to the 1920s and 1930s, the way they set up Hoover to take the fall for the stock market crash.  And I have this intuitive feeling there’s something going on, they’re going to set up Trump to take the blame for whatever happens, they’re doing all they can to interfere with his Presidency,  and trying to figure all that in with the realities of supply and demand, and money manipulation and all of that — who knows?


WS:  Absolutely, I’m in total agreement with that. It’s really clear that Deep State and Wall Street banksters are doing whatever they can to derail the Trump agenda, whose primary job from the outset, from what I can see, is to change the trajectory of the nation.  A radical reconfiguration and change of direction of the government and America’s foreign and domestic policies that have been essentially placating to the oligarchical elite, that essentially has been out-sourcing jobs and deleveraging the middle class for the sake of creating a multi-lateral global trading system, and in the process de-nationalizing countries by creating trade zones and enforcing certain policies where national governments no longer really have any leverage or any say in terms of their future.

MG:  Yes, I totally agree.  There’s so much.

WS:  Now in terms of how this is all coming out with the markets, since that’s what our focus is, and keeping in mind what we just said about the fact that the Deep State is striking back, which is very much tied up with the central banksters, the Wall Street banksters, as well as the general trans-national infrastructure, the people who work and operate at that level throughout the globe, to the counter-globalists movement that we saw with the British Exit Vote, with the Trump unprecedented and unexpected victory.  And now we’re seeing the rise of Marine Le Pen in the French election, and the election going on in the Netherlands and this anti-globalist movement that is spreading throughout the world.

le-pen-election-oddsKeeping all of that in mind and looking at the global economy, we can see that the indicators are showing that we are not only undergoing a political revolution, but a macro-economic reconfiguration and revolution in terms of how we trade, in terms of markets, in terms of price discovery, in terms of all the fundamentals that have defined what economies are based on and what markets are built on, and trade on.  So that’s the bigger thing going on.

And one of the things that you’ve discussed very well in some of your own YouTube presentations and putting some of my material with it, is certainly comparing the recoveries of the total real GDP growth at the end of all the recessions going back to 1961, and you can see that arguably this is the weakest recessionary recovery, and I think we can argue that there was really no recovery, but really a cover-up.

MG:  Yes, it is.

WS:  And this is essentially played out and pontificated by the former Obama Administration for the past eight years, they have been essentially negligent in letting the globalists’ doctrine and policies supersede domestic economic policy and global economic policy for the United States, while at the same time the Federal Reserve in conjunction with the Obama Administration were announcing rosy job numbers, skewing the numbers, skewing the facts and statistics, essentially putting out fake news, fake economic data.  So the fake news that we’re witnessing now on the political end, really all begin around 2009 when Obama announced in June that the Great Recession had ended, the Recovery was in progress, and the Green Shoots economy — this new economy that his administration designed in concert with the Fed policies would bring the middle class back to where it was prior to his election, which never occurred.

Now we’ve reached a point where we’re seeing a major middle class revolt.  Trump’s election is essentially a revolt by the de-leveraged middle class that has lost all hope, that has been demoralized because the government has been negligent in its social contract, and as this has been playing out, the dysfunction of the economy continues to accelerate and intensify.  And it’s clear that we have not only entered into the early stages of another recession, but that this recession is a prelude to a likely greater depression that is not only going to be centralized here in the United States but throughout the globe.


And that image here about the economy where Obama is on the USS Titanic and he says, “It’s not sinking, it’s just a downward revision.” It really exemplifies what you and I have been discussing for many months about how this cover-up has been a massive intelligence operation by the oligarchical Wall Street central bankster elite.

MG:  Um Hmm.  Lately, this crazy talk has come to my mind, many mundane astrologers and establishment people keep talking about the Fall of the Roman Empire and equating that with the possible fall of the United States Empire.  Suddenly I’m looking at the bigger picture here, it’s not maybe so much the Fall of the Roman Empire, the American Empire, we may be looking at in the very near future, the fall of the Global Empire that’s created this mess.  We have the Trump Revolution here, Brexit, Le Pen and all these other people.  It’s like the fall is coming, but it’s a bigger fall and it’s not just the Fall of the Roman Empire, but it’s the fall of this whole worldwide mess.  It’s as if the oligarchy has created a worldwide Roman Empire that is now way overextended in all categories.  People are crying for their original culture, countries, sovereignty to be re-established.  Whether or not they will be, we don’t know.  But it’s bigger than we think, this fall.  And it’s not just the United States, it’s global.

WS:  I think we’re going through a major transformational period, which is part of a psycho-spiritual death-rebirth process, where the belief in the system, its social institutions, the governments that are based on the social and legal contracts begin to break down.  This is the first phase.  So we’re seeing the process of decay and death, that will follow with a transition to a transformation event which we would call in historical terms an “X Event”.  They generally occur in the second decade of every first century.  An ‘X Event’ then indicates the transition from the death to the transformation, followed by a rebirth or what historians like to call a Renaissance.

So the United States and the global oligarchical elite that basically took control from 1945 onwards, which many historians call the ‘Pax Americana Period’ (from 1945 to current) is collapsing on its own weight.  It built a system that’s not sustainable or tenable, it pontificates nationalism but it really is based on transnational global governance principles.  It goes entirely against democracy, it goes entirely against libertarian democratic values, and it operates invisibly.

What a lot of astrologers out there still aren’t seeing is that the political revolutions that are taking place (and Trump’s election should be the sign), are not an aberration, or because the Russians ‘rigged the elections’ – that’s what the neo-liberal astrology faction that makes up 90 percent of the astrologers today – they are pontificating that same CNN shrill statement that the election was rigged by the Russians, and that’s why Trump won.  No.  Trump won because we saw a collapse of the middle class, and there were economic indicators that go back during the last several years that show we have shifted into not only a recessionary mode, but a severe recessionary to depression mode.  We’re seeing that with tax receipts which indicate that since 2013 we have been in a recession.  The gross private domestic investment indicates we are in a recession.  Retail is collapsing all over the place and that’s showing that the U.S. consumer is tapped out.  And that’s important because this whole globalist model is based on consumption, not innovation and manufacturing, and the election of Trump is the strike-back from the middle class to the oligarchical elite, and it’s happening worldwide now.

Trumpzilla | William Stickevers, Astrologer | Astrology and Politics

So Trump is the leader who’s going to attempt to sacrifice the Empire – the transnational American globalist empire – in order to restore the nation, in order to bring the country back to normalcy, in order for it to operate under a Constitutional framework again, in order for it to be the country that it became; a self-sufficient, self-reliant, technological, economic, cultural, industrial super power.  Which it no longer is, it’s just so on paper.  So that’s really what he’s doing and the economy is the greatest argument he has and leverage mechanism which will give him the green light by the middle class to do whatever it takes to restore it back to what it once was.

MG:  — Right.  I see the whole ________illa that we’re living in right now.  So many people are getting sucked into paranoia and fears, and spinning of the illusions of Neptune.  And when people get locked under that influence for whatever reason they may choose, one side or the other, it’s not based on reality and we have this back-and-forth that we’re witnessing in the media cycles.  And really, I see the direction right now, is that every individual needs to hook onto not Neptune, but  Uranus.  Uranus is change.  And the forces of Pluto in that square are willy-nilly in bringing those changes about.  But in our meditations (if we meditate), it’s the influence of Uranus, the new, the revolutionary, the breaking into these fantastic potentials that are just around the corner with some of these technologies, the genetics, and biological field, all kinds of things.  I think in 2020 at the winter solstice when we finally get that next Jupiter-Saturn great chronocrator when it shifts out of the earth signs into the air signs — that 20-year Jupiter-Saturn conjunction that is always a major forge?____-struck now going into air signs, as our colleague, Richard Nolle says, “It’s like handing an I-Pad to an 1840s farmer.  These things that are literally just a few years down the road are beyond our comprehension.

Like Trump and Le Pen, quit looking at them as ‘little people.’  These are destiny figures.  They are simply representing these forces.  So don’t be scared, get into Uranus and get into this revolution of thinking and bringing back to the original –

WS:  Vision of the Founding Fathers, right?

MG: Yeah.

WS:  That’s an excellent point because one of the things that made America great was its ability to innovate, and produce its way through innovation, through the greatest economy, the greatest military, the greatest scientific complex in the world.  We have achieved more in a hundred years than empires have in a thousand years.  You look at all the level of innovation and patents, and inventors.  Who sets the operating system standard?  Who sets the standards worldwide?  It’s been the United States since 1900 on.  We did the first in almost everything, and if we weren’t the first we became number one in that particular area once we committed to it 100 percent through the type of system that the Founding Fathers put in place.

And that has been superseded by this oligarchical elite that wants to destroy the middle class.  Because it’s only through the destruction of the middle class — de-leveraging it where they have no protections, they have no social security, they have no economic security — is the only way they can implement the last phase of this global re-set to move us into a transnational shift into a globalized world government.  A globalized system with global governance and one digital-base currency, etc.  So all of this is only one part of what’s going on.


At any rate, I want to get back to the stock markets because we’ve been seeing so many different bellwether indicators that are dramatically lower in 2017 than they’ve ever been since the Recession officially ended in 2009.  One of the indicators is the largest percentage of decline in average weekly work-hours since the Recession in 2008; we’ve now surpassed that level.  Meaning there are people, contractual workers that make up a majority now, not employed workers but underemployed or contractual employed workers, working less weekly hours than they were in 2008.  The job growth at the S&P 500 companies, that essentially set the standard for American companies and which most pensions have their equities investments in, has gone negative for the first time since 2008.  Meaning the companies are making more money because they’re buying back more stock, but in terms of growth, in terms of expanding their employee base — that has gone net negative.  And the U.S. economy, keep in mind, has grown at a dismal 1.9 percent annual rate on a consistent basis since 2009.  It has never hit past 2 percent.  And now it’s down to 1.9 percent during the fourth quarter of 2016 and DECLINING.  So what’s happening here is the markets are moving up, but the Gross Domestic Product, and all the other economic bellwethers are moving dramatically lower at the same time.


MG:  Right.  We’re not making widgets anymore.  Yesterday I was out in the low desert called San Jacinto, and driving through an area on the outskirts there are acres and acres that are owned by Ron Hubbard of Scientology, and they have a studio out there.  And many of the buildings are boarded-up, it didn’t look like any human activity at all.  And yet you see their promotions that they’re this thriving world-wide organization, and when you drive through that area, they’re not.  And I see the same thing going on all over.  It’s this illusion of “great money and yada yada” and it’s not.  When I finally retired, I was doing technical work in a _______ studios, transferring tapes and making cd’s.  And after several management changes they ended up laying off 50 percent of the people.  And the rest of us ended up working 12-hour shifts.  And you think, “How are they saving any money on that, with all of the overtime?”  Well they can’t afford to pay the medical and Workman’s Comp and all of the things that the insanity of the past eight years has brought about.

WS:  You’re basically telling me that they can no longer sustain an employment force, a true middle class employment force where you get compensation, a proper salary for 40 hours work, medical, retirement and other benefits that are part of your work contract for your commitment to that company and its vision.  Am I correct in what you’re saying?

MG:  Right.  From the 1950s to the 1990s which was our great heyday.  And now that’s gone and we’re not making widgets anymore.  Not exporting.


WS:  Right.  And this is a good point because you came up at a time (you’re a little older than me, although you’re still young) when the country was expanding, developing, progress, innovation, experimentation, investment in infrastructure, manufacturing, development really proliferated and it was a time when America was at its best.  Now we’re in a period of de-leveraging.  Instead of innovating, we’re out-sourcing.  Instead of building infrastructure, we’re no longer investing.  The country basically had a scalable, robust, informed, highly skilled workforce at all different levels; manufacturing, service, and consumption level work force as well.  That no longer can exist today.  Since 1992 with the beginning of NAFTA was not only the out-sourcing of jobs, but the complete disintegration of those very things that created the America that the Baby Boomers grew up on, and today results in a 73 percent consumption economy.  I’m sure that when you were born, Mason, the economy was around 69-70 percent manufacturing and now it’s 73-72 percent consumption.  So we have a 72 percent consumption economy in 2016, and when you were coming of age it was somewhere between 50 and 70 percent of manufacturing.  So that’s the real difference, that is what Americans forget about.

Not to mention the fact that the money was backed by gold.  The dollar was backed by gold, held an intrinsic value of gold, a means of production to acquire and hold that gold.  There were basic fundamentals at work.  And because those fundamentals were sound, more or less, with only intermediate or necessary intervention on the part of government due to the Great Depression, the markets were basically free markets and reflected what was actually happening in terms of change and innovation.  They were always a leading indicator of where things were going.  That is no longer true today.  Since 2009 we’ve been living in the ‘Extend and Pretend’ era of economics, of trade, or price discovery – everything that we now know about markets and almost every aspect of it is fraudulent, is gross fraud on a level we have never seen since the collapse of the Roman Empire.  This is what we’re facing now.


Now that we’re at this point I definitely want to talk about the S&P 500 Index and explain how we’re going to see the beginning of the end of the ‘Extend and Pretend’ that was pushed through by the Fed policies, and pontificated by Barack Obama whose negligent stewardship of the economy has resulted in what we’re seeing now; where the elite, the one percent continue to make money and thrive while the middle class is barely able to survive.

MG:  Yes, the only job they can get is to be Soros-paid protestors.  A paying job there.S&P 500 INDEX FIRST TRADE HOROSCOPE

WS:  Let’s look at the S&P 500Index.  March 4, 1957, 10:00 am on Wall Street, this is when the Index was conceived by S&P Company.  As you can see we have the Sun in Pisces, we have the Moon in Aries, and we have Gemini on the Ascendant, and an Aquarius Midheaven.  Notice too that we have Saturn in Sagittarius as well.  That’s important because right now transiting Saturn is in Sagittarius.



If we look at the transits and what has happened recently, the S&P went through its second Saturn Return.  And Saturn is going to be retrograding and coming within striking distance again to that Saturn.  While that Saturn Return was taking place, we had the Neptune-Saturn Square ongoing through 2014, 2015, into 2016, and now Saturn is finally moving ahead of Neptune.  What that generally means is the Saturn-Neptune is about extending and pretending.  That’s keeping interest rates at an artificially low rate of one percent or negative in other countries outside the U.S., because remember Neptune has to do with credit, soft money.  People live on credit, they don’t really live on their salaries, they don’t have hard cash today, and that also applies to the United States.  So there’s the extending and pretending principle of Saturn-Neptune which has to do with creating money out of thin air, infusing it into insolvent financial institutions, borrowing, buying back, creating debt from that, and selling that debt as bonds in order to keep the stock markets and the equities markets and the general consumption-based economy going; extending the façade that the economy has reached normalcy and has recovered.  And you can see that with Neptune on the Sun of the S&P 500.  Basically the inflation and stock run-up we have witnessed, is essentially all due to this Neptune-Sun configuration that has been inflating the markets while we’ve seen the economic fundamentals continue to degrade.


MG:  I totally agree.  Reckoning is due.

WS:  So one of the reasons I think you wanted me on today, Mason, was to talk about how the era of ‘Extend and Pretend’ is coming to an end.

MG:  Right, absolutely.


WS:  And this has to do with this Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-Square configuration that is now in place.  Because we have to remember, let’s say from late 2014 through today we’ve had this massive S&P run-up, it’s gone from anabolic to parabolic levels and that has to do with the liquidity, the market manipulations that have been going on, the stock buy-backs by corporations since it’s easier for them to borrow money and buy back their own stock, and pay it off at almost virtually no interest immediately as their equity prices rise, and as a result, give the illusion — the impression that their companies are growing while they’re laying off workers, like you stated earlier, many of them don’t have real middle class jobs where they can have a mortgage, send their kids to college, where their wife doesn’t have to work another job, medical benefits are out the window, their retirement is completely gone or becomes marginalized.  Now we have the Uranus-Jupiter alignment, especially with the Jupiter-Pluto alignment hitting the S&P dead-on on March 30, 2017.

MG:  That makes my chart forecast  look pretty good.
WS:  That’s right.  And if we look at the Blackbox indicators – this is a weighing system, and we can apply this to anyone’s chart, it doesn’t just apply to financial instruments or first trade horoscopes, but it can apply to anything and we’re applying it now to the S&P 500.  We have 2017 here and we see this green area indicates bullish indicators, and the red area indicates bearish indicators.  We can see this big run-up in January, around the time that Trump got inaugurated.  Everyone was saying, “The market’s going to crash as soon as Trump gets in.”  Nope, it went up higher.  We still see it remaining strong and we see the market making another high in early March.  And it will probably hold its own or remain within a particular price range all the way through this period until the Jupiter-Pluto alignment comes in play, and that’s around this period here in the graph, this bearish indicator.


But here’s the thing, a lot of astrologers will say, “On the day of the Jupiter-Pluto Square on March 30, that means that the market will crash.”  No, that’s not how it works, folks. That’s why we use this Blackbox, because it indicates not just one testimony, but over 780 testimonies compounded on top of that one testimony, averaging out the scoring and the weighing and adjusting it, and also adjusting for lag factors, so just because something happens on a particular day doesn’t mean it happens immediately.

Looking at that we can see the beginning of volatility, and bearish astrological indicators begin to hit the S&P 500 chart very hard.  One of the indicators is the Solar Arc Ascendant conjuncts Uranus, and as you know, Mason, Uranus has to do with volatility and instability; it’s not an indicator where a ‘buy and hold’ strategy works.

MG:  No.

WS:  Generally if people have been going long on the market, they begin to go short on the market.  So they may still be invested in the S&P during this period, but the smart money is going to start shorting or pulling their money out faster.  There’s going to be a need to go into wealth preservation mode.  The rumors on the street are going to be real.  This period in April, for nothing else, indicates when the ‘Extend and Pretend’ period of the Barack Obama economics of liquidity, and zero interest rates, and manipulation of the markets that has resulted in the second-largest bull run in the history of the stock market begins to unwind.

MG:  Yep.  April Fool!

WS:  I’m looking at a few things here because it’s clear a lot of people feel that the equity markets refuse to come down, and the S&P has even closed above many forecasters’ trend lines.  But again, I’m looking at at least a 10 percent correction, possibly a 20 percent warning correction, it can go anywhere between 10 to 20 percent on this one, maybe somewhere in the middle.  But I’m seeing a correction around that place within this time-frame here beginning in late March, although we may see another high, it just means some volatility.  And then we see a 10 percent correction, but not a complete collapse of the market as many people are forecasting.

MG:  There wasn’t a complete collapse in 1929, it was for a few months and then there was a rally that recovered about 50 percent and there were other downturns after that, that finally bottomed out in the 30s.  That’s what I see.  In March, April will be that first ‘bang’ shot.  And then there will be recovery, however much it goes down.  The technical charting guys, you know, speak of the classic 50 percent recovery of whatever the drop.  And then a key date: the Big Kahuna eclipse this year that slices right across the middle of the country in August (21), that’s the one that I think will lead to whatever point where it bottoms out and just completely, perhaps, wipes out all of this Neptune illusion that we’ve been living with for the past couple of decades.

And then that’s the time to go for Uranus, and go for these new evolutionary solutions, from April to August.

WS:  I totally agree.  What we’re seeing here is a warning shot or a ‘shot over the bow’ as they would say from a military standpoint.  Where a warning shot is fired over the bow of another ship, indicating to the smart money that the era or policy of ‘Extend and Pretend’ is over.  And probably – and this is using a little of intuition here, because I look at Trump’s chart and his transits, I look at all of the other transits going on, I look at all the indicators using the Multibox Financial Forecast so I can look at every particular commodity fund, instrument and market.  What we’re seeing here is probably at around the time that Trump begins to roll out his legislation to make dramatic changes to economic policy, to impose tariffs that are long overdue, to essentially break the back of the trade deals and transnational corporate policies that have been pushed through over the past eight years.


And let me say this for those who think I’m just beating-up Barack Obama, I am well aware – I think Mason and I are both on the same page when we realize that NAFTA was created by George Bush and got approved and pushed through by Bill Clinton, and then got accelerated and intensified with George W. Bush’s election resulting in the scenario we have today, and then was pacified with the ‘Extend and Pretend’ policies of Obama, it’s all part of a bigger thing.  So I’m not just beating-up on Obama.  I do hold these transnational, oligarchical ciphers responsible, and it’s not just them, it’s the people at all levels of government.

the-end-of-extend-adn-pretendBut what we’re really saying, and what I’m seeing here, is that when Trump puts in his policy to reverse this globalist agenda to marginalize our economy, marginalize our intelligence operations, marginalize the people, marginalize our workforce, to do everything it takes in order to present a crisis where a transnational, centralized globalist model will be presented as a solution and enforced through the UN that is superseding our federal government, will be interrupted and obstructed through the period that we’re talking about here.  I believe that’s when Trump will come through.  And part of what he’s going to represent will be destabilizing to the “Extend and Pretend” markets.  Not the real markets – not the true markets based on the fundamentals of true price discovery, and free exchange, but based on these fake models that YOU out there continue to invest your money in.  With that money you give to your broker, that money you give to your Roth IRA every month, expecting to get that $1 million to $2 million retirement from – that’s NEVER going to happen.  So that’s really the issue that’s going on here.

MG:  I totally agree, William.

WS:  Based on the Multi-Black Box we’re seeing the S&P 400 mid-cap, the S&P 500 really getting stressed all throughout the first half of this year, most noticeably in April.  We’re starting to see it now with the mid-caps which are better leading indicators than the large cap.  So when I see the S&P 400 mid-cap being stressed earlier, followed by the S&P 500 at a later period being stressed, that tells me that we’re going to see an unwinding in the markets and a loss of confidence.


But notice here, where we look at the gold trading, where the COMEX is, we notice that’s very red as well.  What that means, when gold is red, is that’s when people buy gold.  Because red is bearish indicators, and green is bullish.  What I’ve noticed is when gold gets stressed, that’s when people buy gold.  When gold is green, you see the price essentially trade within its normal range, it stays steady with no major ups or downs.  But when it gets red (and people sometimes sell off their gold because they feel confident about the markets and they’ll buy other instruments such as equities) but when it gets red, and I see it getting redder during this period here, that means people will start acquiring gold as a hedge against destabilizing or volatile markets, especially in equities.

But it won’t be one big, one-shot equity unwind, “OMG, what’ll I do, have I lost my retirement, should I sell now?”  It will be a warning shot with a lot of volatility and a lot of damage control by the Feds, by the institutions saying, “Don’t worry, this is normal, we knew this was coming, your money is safe, don’t sell anything.”  You’re going to hear a lot of that, and meanwhile the smart money, WHILE THEY’RE TELLING YOU THAT, the smart money’s going to be buying that gold.  There’s going to be a lot of that going on.

So this is what I’m trying to say, we’re going to be seeing a lot of volatility and what they say versus what they do, there’s going to be a vast difference.

MG:  I see a similar thing with gold.  As my viewers know, my therapeutic hobby is salvage.  I have a little shed in the backyard and I tear apart old televisions, vacuum cleaners, computers, whatever.  It’s pennies, but for me it’s therapy.  Mars rules iron and tools, and salvage is ruled by Pluto, so it’s the perfect therapeutic outlet to express energies.  And I managed to latch onto some old computers and I’ve had some good luck lately recovering gold-plated little pins.  And when I go to the scrapyard to cash-in my copper and aluminum, I can see the real market at the junkyard because their prices fluctuate as well.  And when I’m getting $3 a pound for copper at the yard, that is a realistic – that’s not intellectual paper nonsense — that’s what the price will support for the profit of the scrapyard dealer and myself.  And I see with this gold the same thing.  Now you don’t buy gold at the scrapyard, you go someplace else.  But to me it doesn’t matter.  Because if I pick up an old computer out of the trash my overhead is just the effort of taking it home.  So I’m going to keep my eye on these salvage prices and how they support reality far more than all this equity stuff.

WS:  I think that’s important because what you’re basically saying is that the spot price on precious metals is vastly different than what it is in terms of paper if gold ETF is at $12.43 which is basically around the target price of gold that many investors are looking at right now. But the reality is that if you try and buy an ounce of gold for $12.43 they will laugh at you.  The spot price of gold is more like $2,100, $2,200.  And then try and get delivery the next day.  Even if you have $2,300 cash and say, “Here it is, give me my ounce of gold”, it isn’t going to happen.  Because there’s somewhere between two to six weeks of delays on deliveries simply because the demand continues to increase exponentially WORLDWIDE.

That is another thing the astrologers, the media, the ‘Extend and Pretend’ financial mainstream legacy media refuse to tell you, and the astrologers are buying into the fact that: “gold is something we shouldn’t even consider here.”

And another thing I want to bring up here now that we’re talking about gold.  If you had invested money in gold in 1999 or 2005, or 2010 — if you took the same amount of money and put it into gold in any one of those periods versus the stock market you would have gained more money than if you had invested it in the S&P 500, you would have more money than if you had invested it in the Dow.  What does that tell you?

MG:  Right.


WS:  That means that the dollar is devaluing, that means we’re in an inflationary cycle.  That means that when you subtract the inflation and additional costs after you cash out on your stocks, you’re net negative compared to gold.  So that is something again a lot of people overlook.  I do a Depression Defense Consultation that just focuses on this for people by the way.  And I show them their numbers.  I say, well if you cashed out today versus if you did this.  So do you want to keep totally invested in stocks and don’t want to have any money in precious metals because your broker can’t make any money from that?  And they see what I’m saying.

MG:  Here’s another confirmation.  The scrappers have a lot of YouTube videos, it’s a definite category.  And this one fellow shared something that he did. When you recover the little gold-plated pins from a computer, they’re not solid gold, just plated.  Underneath will be nickel, perhaps silver, even iron.  They’re just plated.  This individual collected a couple of pounds of these gold-plated pins and plugs, and instead of separating the gold and silver and other metals, he simply took a torch and melted them all into little one-ounce bars.  He sold these mixed bars on EBay which are some gold, some silver, some nickel all together.  And the people who buy the raw commodity will do the assay and give you the gold content.

On Ebay he sold that little one-ounce bar for $250 cash.

WS:  Absolutely.  And that supports what I stated earlier and what we’ve been talking about for weeks in our discussions prior to this presentation we’re doing.  So precious metals are going to move up.  I do see some minor correction with precious metals between now and this spring.  So people will call and say, “Gold went down or silver went down a little.”  I’m certainly expecting that, but it won’t be that much of a correction.  Because what we’re going to see is when gold begins to move it will move up big, and then silver soon follows.  It’s gold first, then silver.  Let’s look at the silver COMEX price.  We don’t see so many moves on silver this year, I believe that happens in the second half of this year or next year.  So I’m seeing much more movement on gold.

But you have to keep in mind that if the price of gold goes to $13.25, the spot price to buy the metal, the trade-in — if you say to the COMEX, “I want to sell my paper gold and swap it for gold,” they will say, “No, we’ll give you cash, but we’re not going to give you metal.” And people have talked about this for years now, especially since the 2009 financial crisis.  They basically say you cannot get gold from the COMEX or from these exchange places because they don’t have it.  They don’t have it because too many people are buying it, like you, Mason.

MG:  Right.  Or they’re throwing it away in the trash and don’t even know it.

WS:  Right.  So folks what we’re trying to get at here and get to you and help you understand, is that black is white, and white is black.  We’re looking through the looking glass.  Nothing appears as it truly is.  We are in the last phase of ‘Extend and Pretend’ especially when it comes to equities markets, because Neptune is still sitting on that S&P 500 and that indicates a dissolution or dissolving of the fundamentals that drive the market.  And the ONLY thing keeping that market going is the day-to-day manipulated emotional sentiment generated by legacy financial mainstream media, that people continue to believe in.  Meanwhile the smart money, very soon if not already, has begun selling assets off, selling equities off, and moving into much more sound instruments of various types and especially the precious metals.


We’re going to see a lot of instability, we’re going to see people questioning.  This is the beginning and we could do another show in the future on this, Mason.  We are seeing the beginning of the Pension Tsunami.  The Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-Square indicates it’s the implosion, breakdown and revelation that the pensions are insolvent simply because the ‘Extend and Pretend’ game that they pulled basically stole, intrinsically took away, from the only remaining asset base that was left after the 2009 financial debacle, financial crisis, and that was the pensions.  So the pensions are in trouble and many of the Baby Boomers and Silent Generation folks who think that they’re going to get their pensions as they’re getting them now don’t realize what’s about to come.

MG:  Yup.  I’m in the process of doing more drawings for my therapeutic drawing books and looking for ways to equal my social security check. I don’t know how much longer it’s going to be there.

WS:  Well Mason, you’re a world class astrologer, you’re skilled in many areas, you’ve seen and done it all, you have a lot of expertise and spiritual understanding that’s much broader than most Americans and even most of the astrologers out there, I’m not so worried about you.  What I am worried about is the folks that continue to listen to what’s being pontificated to them including many of the astrologers that continue to essentially just become shills of not just what’s being pontificated on CNN, but what’s being pontificated in the Wall Street Journal.  This is where the real crisis is, is that many people are just completely fooled and beguiled by what has been taking place and continue to view everything as a disruption to the fake world — like the rise of Trump and all of these other geopolitical developments — as a disruption of their unsustainable world view.

MG:  Right.  You cannot use astrology to validate your bias, it’s going to trip you up.  It’s good for learning and research to do historical charts, that’s how we all learn.  But the pitfall is, it’s always easier to read charts after the fact.  There are enough stars, fixed stars, asteroids, comets that will verify any kind of prediction you want to make. It’s very complex.  Okay, I’m an old timer, I try to base most of my systems on the basic nine planets. Sometimes I’ll throw in a fixed star like Algol, that’s a really nasty bugger, but we’ve got to put our bias aside and look at overall forces that are at work here and now.  Because that is what’s going to bring about whatever comes down the pike.  And if the asteroids and stars coincide, that’s the icing on the cake.

And remember that all of this CNN and media stuff, that’s all Neptune.  And Neptune is a very beautiful planet.  Every planet, every aspect has got a positive and negative side.  Spiritually Neptune opens up all kinds of things, and creatively all sorts of things.  But when it comes down to reality — uh uh.  It’s going to fool you every time, and especially when it’s in the sign that it rules.  And the old ruler, Jupiter, being in a stressful aspect to Uranus – oh no.  There are going to be some big changes.  I’ll just leave it at that.

We’ve had a really good rap today, William.

WS:  Well I think so, I want to thank you for allowing me to come on your show.  I really appreciate the opportunity you’re giving me and I’m really looking forward to the feedback from your listeners, your clients, and the people that follow you.  I really have to commend you.  Many people in your age group are just keeping quiet.  The older astrologers say to me, “William I hear what you’re saying, but as long as I’m getting my pension, I’m not going to say much on this because that’s all I’m really concerned about it.”  And the problem with that, is it skews their understanding, their openness, their ability to understand what the transits are saying.  And the very thing that they’re holding on for dear life for, and basing their whole entire future on is false, unsustainable, untenable, and that’s exactly what this Neptune here is showing.

And just keep in mind, that Neptune rules credit.  What have they been doing?  Creating false credit and pushing it into these institutions, and creating the false belief that the economy, based on the S&P 500 or based on the stock market (which is the smaller stock market by the way) …  The smallest market is the equities market. It’s very small and unsophisticated compared to the bond market which is twice the size, the currency markets which is ten times the size, and the derivatives markets which is a million times the size.

So a lot of the older astrologers out there (with the exception of you, Mason, and a few others) are calling it as they see it, even though they are benefiting one way or another from that pension system or social security, or whatever subsidization they’re getting in retirement.   But you are realizing that the jig is up and it has nothing to do with the generation who contributed to the system, but it has to do with the corruption (Neptune), corrupt leadership (Neptune) that has created this coming debacle.

MG:  Yep.  They should have stuck to making movies.  It really is all about Neptune, it’s just a movie.

WS:  Ultimately, yes, we know it’s just a movie, but unfortunately a lot of people are going to have to deal with this.  We’re all going to get hit by it, not just the Baby Boomers or Silent Generation, or few GI Generation folks still alive.  It’s going to hit everybody and hurt everybody.  The equities market is the most sensitive but least sophisticated, and it’s the smallest market.  So when you begin to see the equities unravel, that’s the indication that the debt market (which is the bond market) will begin to unravel which is twice the size of the equities market.  And when that happens the central bank is going to have to do things in order to maintain it, and yet if they do, they are setting themselves up to default at some point.

So the real power struggle here between Trump and the Deep State – and when I mention the Deep State I’m talking the financial deep state, the shadow banking system, the national security structure, the breakaway civilization – that whole cabal is going to be the confrontation, and the power struggle is deciding do we keep the country?  Or do we decide to sacrifice the country for empire?  And that all is coming to a theater near you starting this spring.  What you’ve seen is nothing.  What you’ve seen is just an aftermath of post-election drama, which really doesn’t add up to anything in comparison to where we’re going to be moving, come this spring.

MG:  Alright.  I always remind people that there are archaeologists today, and I have a deep respect for archaeologists who spend their lives digging up lost high tech civilizations, hundreds of thousands, millions of years, who knows how many years old?  And nobody yet has conquered the entire globe.  That is a big Neptune fantasy.  And in my personal belief, I don’t think anybody is ever going to rule the world.  It’s just a fantasy, a mental disorder that persists throughout history.  It never works. And back again, we’re right around the corner from all that illusion crashing.  Again, I try and encourage people to look at the news (even though it’s controlled).  When a bad tornado rips through the South or the Midwest and you see all this wreckage … oh my god.   And in a year or two it’s all put back.  Hmm?  So yeah, all of this corruption is going to collapse into a steaming, smoking mess.

WS:  I agree with what you’re saying, but I want to put hope out there to your listeners and to all people who have an interest in this.  The collapse will be followed by a reformation, a reconstruction, a re-engineering of the country and of the global economy followed by a renaissance.  But there will be blood in the streets before that happens.  The astrologers have to get with the program and realize what is coming here.  When the era of ‘Extend and Pretend’ comes to an end, we’re going to realize how we were all gypped or blindsided by the measures put into place to keep the markets going after the dot com collapse.  All of the manipulations by putting the money into false instruments to prop-up the real estate markets, which then collapsed and almost caused a derivatives unwind, which required a liquidity rescue of creating money out of thin air and injecting it into institutions and governments worldwide.

I mean folks, c’mon, let’s get with the program here.  The Federal Reserve injected $17 trillion within a three-week period starting March 24, 2007.  That information wasn’t released until 2009, 2010, and that’s not including all the other measures: the $800 billion bail-out by George W. Bush, followed by a bank bail-out in February of 2009 by Barack Obama.  Had they not put that $17 trillion injection not only into the markets, but into other countries and corporations and that list remains secret, by the way.  This is all out there.  You can look this up yourself.  This is the ‘Extend and Pretend’ that had to be put in place.  And the damage control is wearing off (Neptune), and things as they truly are are going to be exposed.  So this is the end, and we’re going to see this Neptune on the Sun of the S&P 500 indicates the dissolution and disintegration of the false manipulations on the part of the Wall Street elite and the Fed, and by the U.S. government to maintain the false belief that the economy is growing.  So that is what we all need to be concerned about.

And Trump, who is well aware of this, is going to do whatever it takes to attempt to fundamentally re-engineer the American economy to build markets, to restructure the markets that are based on true price discovery.  He will attempt to do it.  Whether he’s successful or not depends on many things, and it’s not a sure thing.  But nevertheless, this is where we are heading.

And I think the next thing we should talk about in another segment in the future is going to the largest pension fund first trade horoscopes, look at them with the Blackbox, talk about them.  Inform the Baby Boomers, the Silent Generation, and the GI folks who are still around, who realize what is coming.  This is not just going to be a Generation X or Millennial crisis, this is going to be hitting all of the generations simultaneously.

MG:  Yep.  Well we’ll certainly do that, William.  And for you folks out there, William is an Aries, and I have an Aries Moon, which means we’re going to be in your face about it.

Well William, it’s been terrific, so we’ll wrap this up now.  Thanks a bunch, it’s really been informative, really great information.  So we’ll see you all next time.






[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 listen to my recent 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 was recorded live on January 1, 2017.

In the webinar, I covered:

  • 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
  • and more.

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.

The webinar recording is now available.

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.

Annular Solar Eclipse – September 1, 2016

Annular Solar Eclipse – Sep 01, 2016 Washington, D.C.

Annular Solar Eclipse - Sep 01, 2016


The Annular Solar Eclipse on September 1st, 2016 at 9° 21′ Virgo will likely be a major watershed event for those nations and world leaders that get energized by it.  For this eclipse will be making a number of challenging aspects, making it very strong and compelling in its impact on the world stage. The Eclipse makes an opposition to Neptune, square to both Mars and Saturn,  and a sesquiquadrate to Uranus.

Saturn-Neptune Square

The Saturn-Neptune square alignment that has been active on the world since Fall of 2014 is associated with

  • chronic social stagnation,
  • protracted and debilitating situations,
  • partisan political malaise,
  • lack of clarity in national leadership,
  • growing unemployment,
  • chronic underemployment, and
  • the rise of collectivist solutions for many nations intractable problems.

Economically, Saturn-Neptune is historically associated with

  • deflation,
  • distorted markets,
  • artificially suppressed interest rates,
  • massive capital misallocation,
  • lack of price discovery,
  • back-door bailouts, and
  • financial bubbles.

So any distressed financial institutions and over leveraged market is likely face major difficulties, resulting in defaults and major market corrections.

Politically, Saturn-Neptune is historically linked with

  • scandal and
  • major reversals in power in political leadership often due to scandalous revelations.

Therefore, we can expect continued revelations and exposure of political corruption at the highest levels of government leading up to the General Election.

Mundane Horoscopes and the Sept. 1st Eclipse

A number of mundane horoscopes, including the natal chart of Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey, Hillary Clinton (8:06 AM birth time), and the nations of Italy, Greece, and the USA Sibly Horoscope, will be energized and impacted by this eclipse.

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan and the Eclipse

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (born on February 26, 1954, at 4:25 AM in Istanbul, Turkey) has been the Prime Minister of the Republic of Turkey since March 14, 2003. The September 1st 2016 Solar Eclipse makes a direct hit to Erdogan’s natal Sun by opposition. As students of mundane astrology know, eclipses conjunct or opposite the Sun, Ascendant or Midheaven are very powerful. Eclipses on the Sun of national leader gives power, however eclipses opposing the Sun will take power away.  Therefore, with this eclipse we can expect another major political shake-up in Turkey with the prospect of Erdoğan falling from power in the coming months ahead.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Horoscope

Hillary Clinton and the Eclipse

Hillary Clinton 8 AM Horoscope

Democratic Nominee for President Hillary Clinton (born on October 26, 1947, at 08:06 AM in Chicago, Illinois) also has the September 1st Solar Eclipse within striking distance to her natal Midheaven (4 degrees’ orb, within the 5-degree orb range). Her 6 Pisces Midheaven, along Solar Arc Uranus at 6 Pisces, and Progressed Mars at 7 Pisces, will be activated and energized.

Bi-Wheel Hillary Clinton - Solar Eclipse Sept 1st 2016Transiting Neptune will be directly opposing the Hillary’s Uranus/Ascendant midpoint and opposing her progressed Mars, indicating that we can expect sudden undermining revelations and developments as a result of former associations with foreign countries, along with a modest but significant loss of political momentum that set up the prospect of a major shakeup in her Presidential campaign team and strategy as the General Election begins to ramps up.

Clinton’s Presidential Campaign

The eclipse testimonies do not augur well for a successful prosecution of national campaign, as the country remains in persistent bad moon in such an unpredictable political year. The testimonies from the eclipse also indicate that Hillary’s campaign will remain in defensive mode and “off-message” with undecided voters, as anxiety grows within her base. The testimonies also augur that she will be unable to effectively distinguish herself from her unorthodox political rival Donald Trump who is more effective at capturing media attention and dominating the headlines and internet activity on almost daily basis.

Also, another concern facing Team Clinton will be the increasing voter enthusiasm gap as the campaign heads into the fall — Trump got more votes in the GOP primary than any candidate in history, while Hillary received fewer votes than she did in 2008 when she lost against Barack Obama.

The eclipse testimonies also indicate that we can expect further shocking revelations from Wikileaks, as founder Julian Assange told CNN this week that his website will release “a lot more material” that could negatively impact the election for Hillary Clinton.

Hillary is treading a different path toward the White House than her past three predecessors: Barack Obama, George W. Bush and her husband Bill Clinton, whom all presented themselves as agents of change in seeking the White House. The last president to be in a place similar to Clinton’s was George H.W. Bush, who was effectively seeking a third-term extension of the Reagan presidency. The eclipse hit to Hillary’s Midheaven along with other transits, indicates that she will have problems with reunifying a very diverse electorate (like Barack Obama effectively did in 2008), requiring her to dramatically change strategy and “core message” to voters midstream. This will be necessary in order to defend her base in the 7 Key Battle Ground States, as the craving for change continues to grow and intensify within the nation.

At the very least we can expect the eclipse to weaken and diminish Hillary’s iconic status which is the only clear advantage she has in the Democratic Party and her voter base. If her position is weakened going forward, her entire “left-of-center” Obama coalition risks collapse. However, most political pundits do not see this as a real possibility.

But the eclipse portents signify that Hillary’s prospects are more like “boom or bust” as the General Election campaign goes into its homestretch in late October.

U.S. Horoscope and the Eclipse

The September 1st Solar Eclipse makes a direct hit to the U.S. natal Ceres and Uranus and the Sibly ASC Degree (United States of America, July 4th 1776 5:10:59 LMT, Philadelphia, PA). The Eclipse occurs in the Mundane 9th House. This house is therefore connected to foreign relations. Therefore, it’s possible we may see the emergence of a foreign policy crisis that could take place during the course of the U.S. General Election. The Mars-Saturn conjunction of the Eclipse chart sits right on the Sibly Ascendant opposing natal Uranus.

Bi-Wheel USA Sibly and the Annular Solar Eclipse - Sep 01, 2016

According to astrologer Charles Jayne, the Eclipse will activate and manifest its archetypal power 90 days prior and remain in effect for at least 6 months afterward. On August 23, the Mars-Antares-Saturn conjunction at 8 degrees of Sagittarius will square the Eclipse point, acting as a trip-hammer setting off a daisy-chain burst of explosive and forceful archetypal energy on the world stage. The results of which will be disruptive to the status-quo and the pervasive normalcy bias that has infected much of the populace and collective.

U.S. Economy and the General Election

Thus we can expect a disruption in the exchange markets and deflationary developments in the general economy. Therefore, we can expect a major downward revision of U.S. GDP growth rate, indicating that the U.S. economy will be barely hanging on by its fingernails from falling into a full-blown recession. This will have a bearish impact on the stock market, and will dampen Hillary’s campaign prospects when it becomes clear that President Obama remains solidly on track to be the only president in all of U.S. history to never have a single year when the economy grew by at least 3 percent. Thus we can anticipate with the eclipse making multiple hits on the U.S. Sibly Horoscope that things are likely take a sharp turn down in the coming months, having a major impact on middle-class families, which may be enough to cost the Democrats the General Election.

Saturn-Neptune and the U.S. Economy

The ongoing Saturn-Neptune square alignment that is a main component of this eclipse indicates that we will see a major reversal in sentiment on the part of investors and financial institutions as it becomes clear that secular growth stocks and funds cannot outrun a stagnant, dysfunctional, and deflationary economy. Therefore, we will likely witness a change in emotional sentiment of extreme greed that has driven the markets over the past several years, to be replaced swiftly by extreme fear.

Therefore, we may witness the dramatic collapse of the Exchange Markets along with a
a liquidity crisis (Saturn-Neptune) that will expose the long-running central bank con job of where central banks buy public debt from the inventories of the 23 prime dealers and other market speculators or directly from the U.S. treasury, along with the monetization of the public debt, in order to keep the  markets artificially propped up since the end of the Great Recession in June of 2009.

Deutsche Bank and the Eclipse

The Eclipse will also make a direct hit on horoscope of Deutsche Bank. Deutsche Bank AG, founded 146 years ago (January 22, 1870 Berlin, Germany), is a German global banking and financial services company with its headquarters in the Deutsche Bank Twin Towers in Frankfurt. It has more than 100,000 employees in over 70 countries, and has a large presence in Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and the emerging markets. In 2009, Deutsche Bank became the largest foreign exchange dealer in the world with a market share of 21 percent. Also, the company is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 Stock Market Index.

Deutsche Bank AG Horoscope

The eclipse opposes the Deutsche Bank Venus at 10 Pisces. The eclipse also conjuncts Deutsche Bank Solar Arc Neptune. Transiting Neptune is also conjunct Venus, and both Mars and Saturn squares it as well. As noted earlier the effect of Solar Eclipses are noticeable 90 days prior to the event, and we can see this action with the Deutsche Bank’s announcement of major fall in revenue and income. Deutsche Bank’s share price fell by 5.3 percent in early trading on July 27th after it announced second-quarter net income was down 98 percent from the same period in the previous year, to 20 million euros ($22 million).

As it approaches its 5th Saturn Return that will occur near the Total Solar Eclipse of August 2017, Deutsche Bank’s balance sheet fell some 48 percent.  Deutsche Bank shares now trade for two-thirds less than tangible book value which is a steeper discount than even during the depths of the financial crisis. Also, Deutsche Bank is sitting on a large pile of non-performing loans and has $72.8 trillion in derivatives contracts — an amount that is twenty times greater than German GDP — and has a leverage ratio of 40:1. Keep in mind that Lehman at the time of its collapse in September 2008, had a leverage ratio of 31:1.

The Solar Eclipse augurs that Deutsche Bank’s could be the first Too Big To Fail bank to collapse since 2008. This would result in a massive liquidity crisis in Europe and across the globe and to an unwinding of the derivatives.  However, unlike the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, in which the Western Central banks were able to contain (due to the $16 trillion in bailout funds injected into the banks worldwide by the Federal Reserve), a failure of Deutsche Bank would trigger a systemic banking contagion the likes of which the world has never seen.

(Part 1 Video)

Part 2:

Read my January 26, 2016 prediction on the GOP nomination.


Part 2

So with the solar ingress chart we get a really good idea of what is on the horizon.  And when you look at the 2016 ingress chart you notice that we have an eclipse that occurs very close to the time of the Jupiter-Saturn Square. 

In mundane astrology, the Jupiter-Saturn Square has very much to do with “bread and butter” issues.  It has to do with job equality, economy, job growth, unemployment. It has to do with those things that are very much in play now among blue collar workers that are now defecting in droves from the Democratic Party and voting for Trump. 

Also, there is a certain amount of blue collar voters who will vote for Sanders but there are just as many, if not more, voting for Trump, especially in the Rust Belt area of the country.  And this is becoming a major, major issue simply because the Democrats really don’t have (or at least the establishment Democrats) an adequate response for this development.

So it’s something that astrologers need to factor in because that voter anger is increasing due to the slowing economy and many Democrats fear that Trump’s appeal to the working class voters can make him a formidable opponent in the general election. 

Based on this trend, I believe what we are going to see is a massive, massive outpouring like we’ve never seen before at these Trump rallies.  Also, we’re going to continue to see much bigger turnout by the demographics of people that could be defined as working class heroes.  Actually, it’s much more like we are seeing the working class tragedy that is now in play with this election.

And this is something that the establishment elite for both the Republican and Democratic Parties and their chosen candidates don’t have a sound strategy to deal with.

[VIDEO Part 1] Voter Revolts, Globalization, and Uranus-Pluto

Part 1:

Watch Part 2 here.


Part 1

What we have been witnessing is a revolt from the middle class.  We’ve seen the collapse of the middle class that has taken place over the past seven years where there was a recovery on Wall Street but no recovery on Main Street.  And the middle class has deleveraged dramatically somewhere between 30-40% depending on what sources you follow.

This type of revolt and growing rebellion by the middle class is also impacting now the working class now as the continued outsourcing has been going unabated, full throttle, if you will, and has impacted virtually every sector of the United States working economy.  We are now seeing this voter revolt not only play itself out in local elections or state elections or recently in midterm elections, but now in the presidential general election.

This voter revolt is also being exacerbated by the impact of globalization, which began during the Uranus-Neptune Conjunction in 1992, and coincided with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Also this has been exacerbated by the agenda and all-out effort on the part of the global elite who continued to accelerate and intensify the globalization process in this nation.

Of course, you also have to factor in the Uranus-Pluto alignments and the Saturn-Neptune alignments that are now key mundane factors in play.  And we must consider the Jupiter-Saturn alignment that is now in effect the beginning of the astrological new year 2016.

2015 Predictions Coming To Pass

October 1, 2015

Prediction: October 1st 2015 – Witnessing the Beginning of the Destruction Of Fiat Money And The Birth Of New Monetary System

Read original post:

September 27, 2015

Prediction: A Black Swan event will emerge that embroils the U.S. into a major geopolitical crisis that could ignite a regional war in the Middle East, as nation’s bond markets begin to implode, setting off a dollar crisis.

Read original post:

September 13, 2015

Prediction:  This Partial Eclipse will augur the beginning of a global debt crisis, with the fall of the Financial Institution across the globe due in part to the unsustainable policies of the Central Banks. This debt crisis is likely to play out through a Black Swan financial event with powerful geopolitical implications that will spike market interest rates that will set-off a meltdown in the Bond Markets, as a daisy-chain of sovereign debt implosions begin to unwind invoking margin calls that invoke Credit Default Swaps in the OTC derivatives market.

Prediction: A “no deal” vote by the EU will surely plunge Greece, and the rest of the EU, into financial and political turmoil. For it is clear at this point no matter what happens with Greece, the truth is that we are rapidly moving toward another major worldwide financial crisis.

Horary Question: Greek Bailout Referendum: Yes or No?

Horary Conclusion: The Ascendant Degree is Invalid, being less then 3 degrees, indicating that it is premature at this time to make a final judgement on the matter. However, the horary testimonies support Vegas Oddsmakers’ current projections for a Yes Vote this coming Sunday that could possibly lead to a new election of a new unity government.

Prediction: Nomi Prins has made it clear in her keynote speech to the IMF and Federal Reserve that there is no saving global financial system. The Mundane Cyclic Planetary Index also makes clear that we have entered a period of pain, change, and crisis as we witness radical events of collapsing global currencies, contracting national economies, along with the breakdown and collapse of unsustainable, obsolete, and untenable systems of finance and banking. When this gigantic financial bubble finally implodes, it is going to be absolutely pernicious and horrific, and the entire planet is going to be shocked by the carnage and social upheaval that will follow.

Prediction: Things will quickly unravel as we enter 2015, and the populace will soon forget much of the recent propaganda that the U.S. economy is growing strongly and that job creation is robust, for the world has NEVER been in a more precarious economic, financial, and geopolitical situation that it’s in right now. As those Derivatives begin to unravel and exert massive pressures, that could lead to insurmountable losses in the Credit Default Swap (CDS) markets, which in turn could take out the major banks. For it is clear we are about to undergo a period of pain, change, and crisis as we witness radical events of collapsing global currencies and commodities along with the breakdown and collapse of unsustainable, obsolete, and untenable systems of global finance and banking.

Is There A Global Financial Crisis Coming?

Transcribed from “The Best People We Know” Radio Show with Deb Scott
“Is There A Global Financial Crisis Coming?” Guest: William Stickevers
(Airdate: September 3, 2015)

Deb Scott:  This is a very interesting show, very different because we’re going to talk about finances and what’s going on in current events.  And our guest today, William Stickevers is going to give us a little insight into that and I think you’ll find this show fascinating.

William Stickevers: Hi, Deb, and thanks for having me on this show again.

Deb: You’re always a hit — you’ve been on the show before and that was a hit, and I know that this will be very much appreciated for our listeners and that they can share this with other people that they know.  And on the Facebook page I have the article that you recently wrote and people can read that.  Although, I think you need a degree sometimes to read some of the things you write, so you can translate yourself for us here today.

My friend, what is going on?  You know, I was so amazed.  I was just looking at so many things with the news and then you sent me this email — I know your listeners are some cutting edge people, I’m a little partial to them, I think they’re the best — and that this information may be really helpful.  So we added a show on for you as soon as possible, and here you are.  So, talk to us, William — what is going on?

William:  What we’re seeing is very much what we discussed about a year ago, and that is the global economy is undergoing a major, re-engineering, and reconfiguration event.  And we are in the early stages of what we would call a [collective] “death-rebirth process,” where right now we’re seeing more of the death and breakdown that will continue, before we will see any transformation and rebirth, which is likely to happen into the next decade.  [Also,] it’s been [covert manipulation] of the Central Banks and world government that have colluded to prevent this breakdown or stall this process.  They effectively did so shortly after the 2008 financial crash.

Deb:  Yep.

William:  They put a lot of damage control mechanisms in place which we are beginning to see fail.  We’re seeing it in the emerging market countries such as China.  We’re also, seeing it in the Eurozone, with all the [record level of highly] leveraged sovereign debt with such nations as Greece, and Spain, Italy, and France, Ireland, and Belgium.  And now we’re beginning to see it with the U.S. economy and with the stock market.  We’re also seeing it with the bond markets, with the explosive levels of debt at the municipal and state government.  And we’re starting to see problems with the pension funds.  So what you’re seeing in play is part of a bigger [mechanism] process, and that is a large-scale, global re-engineering event that is now in play, that is beyond the control of government or corporations or central banks. And the solutions [implemented], which were never really solutions but more like Band-Aids, that were put in place in 2008 that are no longer working, and will no longer be effective to keep the system going. For all intents and purposes, the damage control is wearing off.  And it’s wearing off quickly.  This month [September 2015] will be arguably one of the most important months in modern American history for a number of reasons.

Deb:  Okay, well, we’re here with bated breath and the people in the chat room are saying that they’ve been seeing a lot of these things.  A lot of people are talking about October, there seems to be rumbling, of course the volatility in the stock market in the last few weeks has people getting a wake-up call.  And what you’re saying is that the Central Bank, and all of these economic safety features to bail everything out in 2008, that no longer is going to work with what’s coming now.  So, what could be coming?  Could America be like Greece, is there just going to be a global shift in everything?  As you say we have to get through the bad to get to the good, there’s a metamorphosis happening here.  So what’s happening in October, this is going to be something that people just can’t play ostrich to anymore, I suspect.

William:  Right.  I think what’s going to happen in October ultimately begins mid-September.  Throughout history there’s only been five times when the S&P 500 has declined more than 5% during the month of August, and when that happened, the stock market has always crashed or gone through a major correction in September.  September is the only month where the S&P fell more frequently than it ever rose.  What’s more — in the 11 times that the S&P fell more than 5% in August, it declined 80% of the subsequent Septembers and fell an average of nearly 4%.  Seven percent down [or greater] is a crash.  Four to six percent is a correction.  However, I’m projecting now that we could ultimately see the market decline more than 50%, between 40 and 55% market loss over the completion of the present market cycle.

Deb:  Between 40 and 50%?

William:  Correct.

Deb:  That’s like the Great Depression!

William:  That’s right.  And what’s happening here, with all this chaos [unfolding now] in the financial world, is essentially a convergence of both secular forces and astrological portents that will be taking place during the month of September, between September 13th and October 8th that is unprecedented.  It starts on the last day of Wall Street trading before the end of the Shemitah year.  Now, I don’t know if you’re familiar with that word, the Shemitah, but during Shemitah years, which occur every seven years, we have witnessed record-breaking stock market crashes on the very day of the Shemitah year, which in the Jewish calendar is Elul 29.  For example, if you go back to September 17, 2001, which was Elul 29 on the biblical calendar, we witnessed the greatest stock market crash in U.S. history up until that time.  The DOW plunged 684 points and it was a record that was held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.  On September 29, 2008, which was also Elul 29 on the biblical calendar, the DOW plummeted 777 points which still today remains the greatest one-day stock market crash of all time.

Deb:  Oh my God.

William:  Yes.  Now we are in another Shemitah year.  It began in the fall of 2014 and it ends on September 13, 2015, which is Elul 29 in the biblical calendar.  Now for those who don’t know, the Shemitah year was also called “the year of release” in biblical times because the land was allowed to rest and the financial accounts of those who were in debt were wiped out and cleansed once every seven years.  The seven year cycle can manifest as a blessing as long as a nation follows the will and law of God.  For those nations that stray from God’s law, the Shemitah can bring severe judgment, often striking in the financial realm of a nation realm with severe political and geopolitical implications.

So what’s interesting to note, is that there will also be a partial solar eclipse on September 13th, on the last day of the Shemitah.  And over the past century there have only been two other times when a solar eclipse has corresponded to the end of the Shemitah year.

Deb:  What happened then?

William:  Those two times were 1931, the beginning of the Great Depression where the recession that started in 1929 became a depression on the day of the Shemitah in 1931.  And in 1987.  So both events, we saw the largest stock market drop, one of the most significant drops in the history of the stock market in September 1987.  Both foreshadowed market panics, major financial corrections, recessions, and depressions.

Deb:  Oh great.  (laughs)  Wow.

William:  Also, as we head toward the Shemitah’s climax, the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index — which is considered the DOW Jones Industrial equivalent in the astrological world, which measures the global economics, and geopolitical stability of human civilization — continues its precipitous downward plunge, meaning that conditions are devolving, becoming more uncertain.  So it’s going to descend 494 points from its peak in May 2014 when the year of the Shemitah began and it will descend all the way until it hits bottom in March 2022.  And between this type of convergence of the downward slide of the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index, the Uranus-Pluto archetypal complex that’s been in play since 2012, and the Shemitah year, and we are now seeing this is the date of the last of full blood moons that fall on the biblical festival date during 2014 and 2015 where the blood moon will be a Super-Moon and will be clearly visible from the city of Jerusalem.

All of these [testimonies] augur that things are perfectly lining up for a global financial crisis beginning in the fall and winter of 2015.  So essentially that’s what we are foreseeing here.  Right now what the Markets are detecting, in all the volatility that keeps accelerating and intensifying, is the fact that the bond markets is overheating. So debt [in the form of bonds] on all levels, has become unsustainable, untenable, and ready to implode. All of that is more likely to being to happen in October onward.  So we’re going to see lots of crazy things unfold in the world, and in the markets. Particularly with the stocks in September, and then we’re going to see the government bond markets and the derivatives that are leveraged against those bonds, begin to implode.  When this begins, it is going to be a problem where the Central Banks begin to lose control of the global financial system.

Deb:  Okay.  This is a lot to take in, William, so for the rest of us, this is a lot to take in.  So, one of the things that I had read about — and again, I’m not an expert like you but I wanted to ask you about it.  Isn’t the global bank making some announcement in October about accepting some other currency?  Hasn’t there been talk with Russia and China saying that they don’t always want to have the dollar be the only one accepted?  Is that part of all of this?

William:  That’s certainly part of all of this.  In fact, the Chinese created their own banking system which is now called the AAIP with 95 countries, including England, our closest ally.  There’s a discussion going on right now about using the yuan as a means of trade settlement for this banking system which is a competitor to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, which both happen to reside in Washington, D.C.   What we’re seeing here is that the world is moving away from the U.S. dollar [as a means of trade settlement and core Central Bank assets by other nations], and the fact that the Chinese are doing a reverse QE [monetary strategy] by selling U.S. treasuries to prop up their yuan, as they continue to purchase gold.  So there is essentially a currency/trade war [in progress] with the United States. They are selling off the $1.4 trillion of U.S. treasury bonds that they hold [in their Central Bank] and converting them into dollars, and then buying yuan with those dollars.  In effect they’re propping up the value of their currency while also devaluing it in order to make them more competitive in world-trade so their manufactured products can continue to be purchased as low prices [by America and Europe], because the issue [with this crisis] really comes down to the fact that nobody’s buying products across the globe.  We have all this capacity, we have all this product out there, but the level of purchasing and the level of consumption is at an all -time low.  In fact, it’s lower now than it was just prior to the Lehman Crisis that occurred in 2008.

Deb:  So if I’m understanding you correctly, dumping the dollar to buy these yuans from China to get the value up on them, is the IMF, if they come at the federal banks and they say this yuan is accepted, the dollar’s going to go down to nothing.

William:  That’s right.  It’s actually not going to happen in one day, but what’s happening now is the IMF is giving great consideration to include the Chinese yuan as part of the SDR [composite basket], which is Special Drawing Rights, or what you would call world money.  So the idea here is that if central banks across the world want to cash out their [core reserve holdings in] U.S. treasuries, the IMF would be willing to swap U.S. treasuries with SDRs.  All that becomes possible if the yuan was included as a composite of the SDR.  Right now that’s not the case, but as soon as it is, then we are talking about the transition of the world reserve currency — the U.S. dollar, established in 1945 under the Bretton-Woods Agreement — will effectively come to a swift end.  That would mean $17 trillion of U.S. dollars would start flowing back into the United States, which would basically crash [the value] of our dollar, and eventually crash our entire [economic] system. This is something on top of all the other challenging and unresolved fundamental issues that we’re we have been dealing with since 2008.  So again, this would be another major thing on top of the issues we’re already dealing with.  The real issue has to do with the fact that nothing was fixed [during the 2008 crisis].  Nothing!

Deb:  Smoke and mirrors.  They did smoke and mirrors.

William:  Correct.  And for those partisan political folks out there listening to this program that believe voting for Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush is the ultimate solution [to this nation’s problems], just remember that it was both George Bush and Barack Obama who bailed out the financial system.

Deb:  Yeah.

William:  So both parties are liable.

Deb:  I agree.  Listen, my feeling — this isn’t a political show, but just for the record, I have to claim my chair — I just think that the last thing that this world needs is another Bush or Clinton.  But from what I’m hearing you say, the next obvious question to you is: okay, we can see that they never fixed it.  We can see that there’s a systemic problem; they just put a little makeup on the situation to keep their heads buried in the sand so that the world stayed status quo.  But at some point, and this is the point we’re at, the obvious is going to become inevitable to accept.  So what do we do?  We’re being prepared, you’re telling us, we’re aware.  What is it that you want listeners, and I include myself, what do we do?  What do we do to be best prepared because we obviously can’t stop it?

William:  Well, I think the first thing we need to do is no longer use the mainstream financial media as a means to guide our decision-making [and form our opinions].  This applies as well in terms of making any future financial decisions and preserving one’s wealth. Because one of the things I predicted — this prediction was posted on my blog back in the [early] summer — is during the weeks ahead, we can expect excessive rationalization by the talking heads of the mainstream financial media, make unprecedented proclamations of assurance.  Including President Obama, in order to prevent the loss of credibility and confidence with the general populace as we witness unexpected volcanic shocks to the global system that continue to accelerate and intensify.  So the first thing you’ve got to do is stop listening to Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, as the sources of information that help guide you or formulate your decision about what you may need to do in order to protect your pension, or protect your 401k, to protect your savings.  That’s the first thing.  Because remember, the moment people lose confidence in the system, it is the beginning of the end for [the system], for they cannot continue their [policy] of financial repression that only empowers a small group of elite or what is now termed “The 1%,” while it disempowers the 99% over the long-term.  So that’s step number one.

Deb:  Okay, everybody, and I see people in the chat room — “Thank you for asking this, Deb, taking notes” — me too.  So the first thing is let’s not believe the mainstream media because they’re going to try to rationalize this when it starts to fall apart, they already are, so just stop going to them because you can’t expect the truth when the truth isn’t in them, and that’s the first thing we need to do.

William:  Step two would be to prepare for a financial dislocation event, like what we saw recently in Greece where capital controls can be put into place.  Where they’ll say, “don’t worry, your money is safe but you can only take out 200 bucks” and then the cash machines run out of money by 1pm [like they did in Cyprus].  Where your MasterCard, or credit card, or debit card will only work up to a certain amount. Where you can get gas [for your car] over so many days. Where there will be issues and problems with all electronic transactions in stores.  Where we’ll see a suspension of certain services as capital controls are imposed.  People tell me, [when they hear this] “well, that never happened, that stuff just sounds like something out of a movie!”  Well, in fact that DID happen, when they closed the banks for 4 days in March 1933 and confiscated all the gold. They also did a form of a bail-in for certain accounts that had at that time $1000 and over — keep in mind most people didn’t have $1000 in their checking or savings account — and they gave them an IOU for both the gold and for their money, which they did not receive back until 1953.  The bank bail-in gold confiscation act, where people lost money and many of them did not live long enough to get compensated back.  And when they did get compensated it was at the 1933 [monetary] level of compensation, not the 1953 level that included inflation.  So, it’s happened before! Keep in mind the government was flush with money [in 1933]. We had trade surpluses.  We were 73% of the world’s GNP, the largest manufacturer, the largest producer, exporter.  We were the largest exporter of oil.  Today we have the largest trade deficit in the world.  We consume oil more than any nation; we’re a consumption, not manufacturing economy.  We manufacture very little. Manufacturing is only 8% of the economy.  We consume more than all the nations of the planet combined, and yet we make less and less.  We have the largest debt of all the countries in the world combined.  The government is both broke along with the corporate system.  Back in the ’30s the government had real assets, it was the corporate system that was broke.  Today both corporations and the government are broke.  So when people tell me that what I’m saying is just never going to happen, it tells me that they are very, very uninformed about [history and] what is now in play.

Deb:  Okay, I have to pause for a minute because this is very overwhelming.  And I’m getting different messages in the chat room here.  So first of all for the naysayers about this dislocation event, you’re saying, look, people, it’s already happened in 1933, the banks were closed for four days, and not only did it happen and they confiscated the money and the gold, the United States was a heck of a lot stronger back in 1933 than we are now.  So imagine if that happens with the situation we are in now.  So that’s point #2?

William:  That’s point #2.

Deb:  Alright. Okay.  So, I think we’re all waiting with bated breath.  Now this #2, this potential dislocation event and all that, that could happen in October or this whole thing starts in October and then it comes soon after?  Where is that in the sequence here?

William:  It’s a good question.  It could happen somewhere in early October, but it could happen a few months down the line.  I believe the big events will begin to go off where the central banks will begin to lose control and all emergency measures, including Quantitative Easing 4, will be invoked.  But I believe they can only hold off these type of financial dislocations where many of the banks begin to go under and go into receivership with the government.

Deb:  For how long can they hold that off?  So you’re saying a dislocation event could happen in October, November, December, January.  It could happen anywhere in there?

William:  Yes, it can.  We’ll probably see it happen in other countries first, and thinking we’re protected and we’re going to hear again the bobbling rationalization from the talking heads…

Deb:  Right.

William:  …saying, “Don’t worry, all is well, this is just a healthy correction,” but that is certainly not going to be the case.  If anything, we’re going to see what happened around the world eventually catch up to us.  I don’t think it’s going to happen here first.  We’ll see it in other countries, maybe in October we’ll start seeing it in China.  We’ll start seeing it throughout Asia.  We’ll start seeing it throughout Europe, and the Middle East too.

Deb:  Yep.

William:  It’ll start spreading like a virus, and then when it happens, it’ll happen swiftly here [with the U.S. markets].  And I’m not saying this is going to last forever, or that we’re going to be eating canned food out of caves, or that we’re going to become a “Mad Max” civilization.

Deb:  Right.

William:  But I do see a period of several months where we’re going to live in a world where all the certainty that we had, certainly since the Second World War, is going to be turned upside-down and evaporate.

Deb:  Yep.

William:  And so that could last for a period of 30 days, 3 months, some people say 6 months, but based on what I’m seeing it’s between 30 days and 3 months.

Deb:  Okay, so William, what’s the next point?  Because we want to know what we need to be doing because obviously knowledge is power.  And what other suggestions or what’s the next point you want to make to us?

William:  Well, the next point has very much to do with a statement by Damian McBride, an advisor to Gordon Brown, who suggested that he stock market downturn that began a couple weeks back could lead to civil disorder or other situations where it would be unreasonable for someone to leave the house.  And that was a very telling statement.  That tells me that time is short, very short.

Deb:  Say that again please, I missed that.

William:  The top advisor to Gordon Brown, who was essentially the head of the central banking system in the UK, suggested that the stock market downturn could lead to civil disorder and other situations where it would be unreasonable for someone to leave their house.  So this is a very telling statement.

Deb:  So Baltimore?  Everywhere is Baltimore and Ferguson, is that it?

William:  Well, those are all [systemic] symptoms of what we’re going to see spread throughout the nations. The government has done a pretty decent job at containing it, but they can only can contain it in a few areas.  Once the [large scale] dissent begins to spread, it will no longer be considered a racial issue, but more of issue of gross economic inequality compounded by and escalating crisis as fiscal dislocation events that begin occurring. Then at some point,  what we saw on TV will become something that happens in our own town or city.

Deb:  Yeah.

William:  So, one of the things that I’m suggesting is get hard cash in a safe place now.  Don’t assume that the banks and the cash points will be open.  Don’t assume that the bank cards will work.  That’s number 1.  Number 2, have enough water, food, and other essentials to live off of for a period of at least 30 days.  Also, we will see a disruption in communications systems, at least for a period of time.  We have to have rallying points where if communication gets cut off, where people can head to.  These are things that are now being talked about in the UK.  If the bank bailouts didn’t work in 2008, we would’ve had massive financial dislocation events.  What’s now coming is on 20 times that scale because the level of debt has exploded, 60% greater than it was in 2008.  And yet, the global economy, when you factor in inflation and you use real hard numbers, has actually contracted.  What we’re seeing here with the markets is just a prelude of things to come.

Deb:  So William, let me ask you this.  If we’re not going to be leaving the house, and the phone, and the internet and all that — it doesn’t bother me because actually, I mean I love my radio show, but I think a tech break would be good, but it’s going to give everyone a heart attack.  You know, food, water, things like that, but if you can’t get to your money to buy anything, if you’re — well, you’re getting, what, 0% in the bank anyway — so what do you do, I mean, gold, silver — if people want food and water, is gold and silver even going to be worth it to have?

William:  Well, people say, well, you know, I can’t lose this amount of money, I’m really worried.  I say, well, how much is it that you cannot lose, absolutely cannot lose?  And they’ll give me a different number.  Five thousand, ten thousand, a hundred thousand, whatever it might be.  I say take that money, cash out, convert it into silver or gold coins or silver and gold bullion, keep it in a secure location that you can get to in your home or somewhere else in a private, secure location facility.  That will be your insurance because a lot of people just can’t pull their money out of their 401k, they can’t —

Deb:  Right.  You’re not going to take it all out.  You’re not suggesting to people, okay, take out everything that you have.  You’re saying take a portion of what you have and convert that into cash dollars or something that is a hard asset like gold and silver and so forth, right?

I’m going to read something from someone in the chat room: “Countries always draw on their gold reserves from the Fed.  I would like to know why they even put their gold into the Fed’s vaults to begin with.  Gold and silver will not be as good as people think if a real serious crash comes.”  Did you have a comment for that?

William:  Yes, it will, because the assumption is that the currency system will still be in place; in other words, we’ll have more of the same thing all over again.  That’s just not going to happen.  I always hear this from people, it’s not going to be the same.  What we had last time was a liquidity problem, and basically they flooded the system.  What we’re going to have now is a debt problem that’s going to result in a global breakdown and restructuring, or systemic crash followed by a restructuring of the currency system.  So valuations are going to go back to where they really need to go, and as a result that’s going to impact the currencies and the value of things.  So the only way to ensure that you don’t lose value is to put things into silver or gold.  However, that being said, I’m telling people have at least $4,000 in cash, in 20s, 10s, and 5s, because if you were affected by Hurricane Sandy, you could take a 20 dollar bill, go to the gas station and say “I need some gas” and they would accept that 20 dollar bill.  Not a gold coin, but a 20 dollar bill, to fill up your tank because the electronic cards weren’t working.  So, those types of things.

Deb:  So you’re saying $5,000 in cash?

William:  Four to five thousand.  At least $2,000.  This is not to pay rent.  No landlord is going to come knocking on your door during a financial dislocation if you can’t electronically send them your check.  No one’s going to shut your electricity off, at least during a crisis — the government will put certain [emergency controls and] things into place.  They have to do so, else they could [quickly] lose the country if people lose complete faith and the government completely does a “Katrina” on us, if you know what I mean.

Deb:  Yep.

William:  They’ll lose the country in the process.  And then people will start pulling their guns out.  So, what they’re going to do is put certain government controls in place, and certain capital controls in place.  So you’re going to want to have that cash for this type of event.  You’re going to want to have some gold and silver for those who have a certain amount of wealth that they want to preserve because we’re going to have a currency crisis that’s very much connected with all this debt and leveraged debt created by the central banks.

Deb:  Wow.  Okay.  So.  Here we are.  What else?  Well, don’t be afraid.  We knew it was coming.  A lot of people know that something — whether you believe in the metaphysical, the astrological, if you’re just looking at numbers and you have a unique ability to put it all together, and that’s why you speak around the world as an expert on these topics, and this is your business and this is what you do.  So, what you’re saying is, look, don’t be afraid, don’t panic, we knew it was coming, these are the simple things you can do in the immediate short-term.  You’ve got to have some cash on you.  It’s not like the world is going to fall apart in a day, but there are going to be some serious changes.  And what you’re saying is, the idea that things are going to go back to normal, there’s going to be a new normal.  So you’re saying it could be a whole new currency.  We could have dollars one day and wake up with “patriot dollars” after this, right?  It could be a whole new thing.

William:  Right.  We don’t know how it’s all going to play out.  Nobody does.  But most everyone who I listen to, in terms of who I follow, who by the way have great track records, [– and I’m not talking about the astrologers, per se –] are saying the same thing.  By the way, there are many astrologers out there who [disagree and] believe that everything is fine, that the economy is roaring along. That the Obama Recovery is almost now complete, and Hillary Clinton will get elected on a landslide as a result.  However, in the financial community, those who invest and make trades independently of Wall Street, who have clear visibility on their financials, who are really on the up and up with geopolitical events, and again have a great track record on calling what happens next, all are in agreement now — and these are billionaires like Eric Sprock for example. It’s not a matter of “if;” it’s a matter of “when,” “what day,” and “what level of impact.”  Everyone agrees the level of impact of the crisis will be much greater than 2008.

Deb:  And 2008 was devastating.

William:  Right, and this will be much greater.  In fact, it will be worse than the ’30s in terms of what happens [to the middle class].  Nobody really knows exactly how the central banks will respond. So we are in unchartered territory.  We’re in The Twilight Zone.  The astrology definitely alludes to that.  In fact, I’ve been writing about this before many of these Wall Street people began writing about this.  We saw major problems unfolding in the world within the mundane astrological community — when we looked at the horoscopes of nations and central banks, and the horoscopes of first-trade stocks and of corporations, and the first-trade charts of bonds and the markets – where we saw a correlation of major and severe stressful portents impacting many of those horoscopes. All essentially occurring between 2014 through 2022.  And what we’re seeing now, is playing out perfectly according to the larger mundane astrological cycles.  For those folks listening who dabble in astrology, or those who are even professionals who don’t look at this type of data, won’t see what’s happening.  But for those that do, it’s very clear.  There’s a direct correlation now between the astrological and the secular data trends. There’s almost like a perfect storm brewing.  What we’re also seeing that is now happening with the presidential election [underway], with the fact that Jeb and Hillary, the establishment candidates, are no longer [the central focus and] being talked about in the mainstream news, but rather Trump and Bernie Sanders. The fact that everyone is talking about Trump and Sanders is a very telling sign that people have lost confidence [in the political and economic system].

Deb:  It is, yeah.  I can’t believe that all the people that are leading the polls are non-politicians.

William:  That’s right.  They’re certainly not mainstream.  Trump is from one extreme and Sanders is from the other extreme in their respective parties.  And the people who run those major parties don’t want them to be the nominee.  In fact, they’re going to pull out all the stops to end their campaigns. The moment this occurs and goes down, it will dramatically change the dynamic of the race in 2016.  What you’re seeing now is not even being factored in [by the political pundits].  There’s going to be a completely different political landscape the day after the big [meltdown] event.   What I’m saying is, don’t even try and contemplate who’s going to win right now, who’s ahead, who’s behind.  What I can say is with certainty is, expect the unexpected [in this race].

Deb:  (laughs) Expect the unexpected.

William:  Yes.

Deb:  Right.  But it all connects.  So what you’re saying is, you look at the stars, you look at that Jewish calendar, the Shemitah year, you look at the Wall Street billionaires.  You look at all of it together, and they’re all validating one another.  So even if you don’t believe in one thing, the other thing is still saying the same thing and that perfect storm is happening right now.  And the fact that the outsiders are leading the polls in the political landscape is just saying people don’t have confidence, don’t have faith in the system, it’s just one more thing.  And once this happens, there’s going to be a whole new awakening, and it’s going to be a very different landscape.  But I have to make some more comments from the chat room — they want you to comment on this.  “Didn’t William just say a currency system will be in crisis?  All bull—-.  What we’re going through now is a result of the Fed’s secret manipulation that refuses to reveal with the IMF and the World Bank.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump is being set up to fail.”  Any comments on that?

William:  Yes.  There is a lot of talk now with the way it’s all being played out so perfectly, that this is all choreographed by the global elite.  There’s a lot of evidence for that, and I do not discount that at all.  In fact, my contention is that they are going for a massive asset grab [after the financial implosion that they created], where they will be purchasing the sovereign assets of countries and central banks, and taking total ownership of whole nations after this event occurs.  However, the way I see it [play out] is that it will set off a global revolution, not just in politics but in thought, in social institutions and [establishment] structures.  The way we’ve defined ourselves [as a nation] since 1945 is going to go through a complete breakdown and revolution.  Even the [nation’s] oligarchical elite, a group that denies its own existence and is hidden in plain sight, is going to go through their own “come to God” moment during this great unfolding.

Deb:  And what’s the good news for the rest of us?  Is there going to be more fairness, justice, appreciation, respect?  I mean, are there going to be good things coming out of this stuff even though it’s going to be painful, this transition?

William:  Ultimately, it will.  But we’re going to have to go through the death and transformation before we have the birth and the renaissance to follow.  We’re going to have to get through this period [of pain, change and crisis].  This is what I’m seeing during this period between now, from 2014 through 2022, when it will hit rock bottom, before it begins to rebound in a dramatic way [through 2030].

Deb:  But that’s a big space there, William, between 2014 and 2022.  That’s a lot of years.

William:  Yes, it is.  And that’s why I’m telling people to prepare, telling people that they’re going to have to rethink their lives no matter what age they are.  The Baby Boomers are going to have to reconsider that cushy retirement plan.  The Generation Xers are going to have to rethink if they really want to go further up the corporate ladder when they’re actually making substantially less than their older peers.  And Generation Y is going to have to rethink what type of world they want to live in 40 years from now and they’re going to want to see things go through a much greater change than many of their Baby Boomer parents are willing to tolerate and deal with.

In the ’60s, we saw generational wars, and now we are going to see big [collective] argument [unfold among the generations] about what type of future we need to have in order to have a sustainable, tenable, and thriving global civilization [in the future].  And right now, the way [the system] is modeled, it benefits the older generation and the 1% [power elite]. It benefits a very small segment of the population that’s aging, and disempowers the [social upward mobility of the] younger population and those who are not in the upper echelon of the income bracket.  You’re going to see major disparity and fighting between the generations [in the months and years ahead] and it’s going to be very much connected with the massive gap of social and economic inequality gap that is growing, and will be put onto the table shortly after this [reconfiguration] event.

Deb:  Alright.  Well, I tell you what, we’re at the end of the show.  I just want to thank William and thank everybody for being here.  I have to ask you if there’s an emergency call and we have our BlogTalkRadio on air, would you come back?  We may need to hear from you again in the next month or so!  But I want people to go to your website and your Facebook page to get the updates so we can all stay informed and be aware and be prepared.  Tell people how they can connect with you.

William:  They can connect with me through my Facebook page and my website, and I often blog and make posts on what is happening, real time, not just commenting but also making forecasts and predictions from it using the sophisticated astrological techniques that I employ to these global events that are now in play.

Deb:  Well, we’re getting a lot of positive feedback in the chat room, and thank you everyone there for participating and being part of the show.  And, William, I think the hope that we have to have here is it’s a blessing to be warned, and thank you for sharing this with us.  But we shouldn’t be afraid.  We have some things that we can do; we have some time to do it.  Most of us that are listening to you and following you have already realized that something’s been going on anyway.  Don’t listen to the media.  Don’t listen to the news stations.  And take care of yourself, and protect yourself and it’s a process that’s going to be difficult but there is light at the end, right?  And we have to stay positive, right?

William:  Yes.  I think it’s very important to stay positive.  There is light at the end of the tunnel.  We are going to have a better world, better government, a better country.  We are going to begin to work out these major issues that have been suppressed [within the collective]. The “more of the same but only worse” [meme] is going to come to a swift end.  We’re going to go into a period of uncertainty but in that uncertainty, something very potent and creative will emerge, and something very good will come out of it all.

Deb:  Okay.  Well, we want you to come back.  I’m going to trust that you will and thank you so much and God continue to bless your work.  William, we really appreciate you, and everybody go connect with William right now so you won’t forget.  Get to that Facebook page, your posts are great, and thank you SO very, very much, William.

William:  Thank you for having me on the show, and I really look forward to us talking again in the near future.
