Back to the Future: 2010 Radio Interview on the the Astrology of a Down Economy

Back in May 2010 I did an interview on Alan Steinfeld’s “New Realities” radio show in New York. The interview was about what the mundane astrological portents were indicating for the new decade of the Twenty-Tens.

New Realities

The basis of my forecast at that time was the formation of the the Cardinal T-Square alignment in mid-summer of 2010 when the slow-moving planets of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto aligned into a T-Square configuration (when two or more planets in opposition make a square to a third planet).

TSquare 2010

Although there have been previous T-Squares involving these planets, e.g. that last one occurred in 1932, what makes this alignment historically significant is that it was exactly aligned along the World Points of the Cardinal signs. Planets located at these degrees express their archetypal power on the global stage with direct and unequivocal force, like a super volcano ready erupt.

The last time civilization witnessed a similar outer planetary alignment of this magnitude was in the summer of 410 A.D. which coincided with the collapse of the Western Roman Empire – the world’s first Superpower, when the Visigoths Sack Rome, which began a period of massive cultural, demographic and economic decline and disruption for approximately 400 years.

Sack of Rome Horoscope

Since 2010 we have continued to see an escalation and acceleration of social discontent, uprisings, large-scale protest, strikes, and skirmishes that have begun to unravel and threaten the peace between the great powers in several regions throughout the globe. For the Cardinal T-Square alignment not only represented the commencement of a global paradigm shift for civilization, but also the tangible intensification and acceleration of imminent environmental catastrophe and near-term exhaustion of natural resources from a rapidly growing global population of over 7 billion, and systems of economy that are not sustainable or tenable for the planet.

Since the summer of  2010, the world has been experiencing the raw archetypal power of the Cardinal T-Square alignment as it continues to express its waning effects as we witness the systemic collapse and breakdown “old world” oligarchical establishment and the nascent emergence of a “new world” establishment. This  radical configuration of civilization represents the passing away of a dying paradigm that has defined a better part of our civilization for the past 500 years, as a new one struggles to be born.

As we go into the Cardinal Square Alignment in Spring  2014, the global community will experience a second recapitulation of the collective archetypal power of titanic change pain, and crisis of the outer planetary alignment as they directly impact on the horoscopes of nation states, world leaders, global institutions, transnational corporations, who continue to maintain and enforce unsustainable and untenable systems.


If you listen to this interview keep in mind that what I discussed in regards to the global crisis and revolution to follow, was well before the 2010: Riots in Bangkok by the National United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship, or the Second Kyrgyz Revolution  that lead to the ousting of President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, or the Greek protests against the Euro zone austerity measures, or the 2010–2013: Arab Spring which included the Tunisian revolution which forced President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to resign and flee the country, and sets free elections, along with the 2011 Egyptian revolution which brought down the regime of President Hosni Mubarak, and the Libyan civil war where rebel forces gradually took control of the country, and killed Muammar Gaddafi, or the ongoing Syrian civil war, and the 2010–2012 Algerian protests, along with the Bahraini uprising, and the 2011 Iraqi protests, the 2011 Jordanian protests2011–2012 Moroccan protests, the 2011 Omani protests, the 2011 Yemeni revolution which lead to the eventual resignation of Ali Abdullah Saleh as President of Yemen, along with the 2011–2012 Iranian protests, the 2011–2013 Spanish protests, the 2011-2012 Maldives political crisis where public protests and police mutiny led to the resignation of President Mohammed Nasheed,  the 2012 Tuareg rebellion, along with Central African Republic conflict (2012–present)François Bozizé,  the president of the Central African Republic, who was  overthrown by the rebel coalition Seleka, led by Michel Djotodia. Also, the 2013 Eritrean Army mutiny, the 2013 protests in Turkey, the 2013 protests in Brazil, and of course the 2014 Venezuela protest movement, the 2014 Thailand protest, and the 2014 Ukrainian Revolt that is well underway.

Truth Embargo

Also I talked at length that the decade of the Twenty-Tens would be one where UFO Disclosure would begin to rapidly unfold. Since that public forecast in May of 2010, governments around the world have been quickly declassifying their dossiers on UFOs and made them available to the public.

In August 2010 the United Kingdom released files containing a wide range of UFO-related documents, drawings, letters and parliamentary questions covering the years 1995-2003. And during the same month Brazil declared a new law that made public the files of Brazilian Air Force that regulated access to government information about UFOs.

In September 2010  six courageous U.S. Air Force officers and one passionate UFO researcher assembled at the prestigious National Press Club in Washington, DC on September 27th who gave intriguing testimony of their personal involvement in a major UFO cover-up by the U.S. Military.  This was shortly followed in November, of the release of the US military investigating UFO landing in Rendlesham forest on 27th December 1980.

In December 2010 the New Zealand government released their top-secret files that included every eyewitness account of unidentified flying objects reported to authorities since the early 1950s, including the 1978 Kaikoura mystery.  By year’s end, December 31st, the Argentine Air Force created a commission to record and investigate reports of unidentified flying objects in the country’s airspace.

In 2011 – in late January the Directorate of Civil Aeronautics of Chile gave some videos and audio of UFO sightings on its territory. This was followed in March of the release of Britain’s X files, with more than 8,000 pages of reports of UFO sightings and international concerns over the possibility of a close encounter of the third kind. Soon after in early April in the United States a new initiative by the FBI called “The Vault” revealed unseen and INCREDIBLE documents about a UFO recovery and other cases.

In July of 2012, the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense released files that contain a wide range of UFO-related documents, drawings, letters and parliamentary questions covering the years 1985-2007. Soon after in August in Australia documents became available under the 30-year rule at the National Archives of Australia, that reveal how two RAAF Mirage jets were placed on the second highest level of alert to determine the cause of unidentified radar contacts seen on screens at Mascot.

Obama Telll The Truth about UFO

The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure from April 29 to May 3, 2013, occurred at the National Press Club, where U.S. Senator Mike Gravel and former Representatives Carolyn Cheeks KilpatrickRoscoe BartlettMerrill CookDarlene Hooley, and Lynn Woolsey were committee members of the hearing. The hearing and a documentary of the event to follow (working title: Truth Embargo) that summarized its findings, were intended to compel Congress and the United Nations open to open investigation.

In June 2013, in the United Kingdom UFO files were released by The National Archives containing a wide range of UFO-related documents, drawings, letters, and photos and parliamentary questions covering the final two years of the Ministry of Defense UFO Desk (from late 2007 until November 2009).

Below is an excerpt from the May 18th, 2010 interview, and many of the events I predicted back then, e.g. the Occupy Movement, geopolitical volatility, societal crisis, and global economic contraction, many of which are happening now.


William Stickevers on the Astrology of a Down Economy
(on “New Realities” radio show)
May 18, 2010


William Stickevers:  When the outer planets align at these degrees, they express their archetypal power on the global stage with direct and unequivocal force.  And what really makes this Cardinal T-Square configuration historically significant is that the last time civilization witnessed a similar outer planetary alignment of this type was in 410 AD… in June 410 AD, it coincided with the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, the world’s first global superpower and was followed by a period of massive cultural, demographic, and economic decline and destruction that continued for 400 years unabated.  We are now entering that same configuration and it’s going to affect the world over as we are seeing now.

What I can specifically do with the technology that I have, the software that I employ, is I can take that configuration, run it against every chart of every nation, every company, every person in my database, every U.S. state, every municipal entity.  And I can see which ones are going to be hit hardest with varying degrees of intensity and then make certain projective speculations on what the future is going to bring.

Alan Steinfeld:  Wait, I thought we were heading into a whole new age of enlightenment and upliftment and joy and beauty – you’re saying that’s not going to happen?

WS:  Well, what I’m saying is that for this decade, that is not going to happen.  Between 2010 and 2020 will be arguably one of the most historically crisis-driven decades.  Because what’s happening now as you can see, with the arrival of the Cardinal T-Square, we can expect – starting 2010 to 2020 – one crisis seemingly begetting another, and the time span between each crisis getting shorter and shorter where the global economy and geopolitical relations will be on a turbulent and perilous course.  Because anything now, any structure that is in place that is unsustainable and untenable will not last.

AS:  Okay, so what about 2012?  Everyone wants to know.  That is not going to be a great awakening?

WS:  No – Yes – well, yes and no.  What you will see is a global revolution.  I believe that 2010 will be the shot across the bow in the beginning of a global revolution that will result in a global awakening, a higher shifting of consciousness.  But at the same time, Alan, there will be a counter-revolutionary force, just as powerful, colliding with that awakening group.  And when that awakening occurs I do not believe it’s going to be going back to “flower power,” going back to your local community in such an easy, graceful way.  The powers-that-be are going to try and lock down exactly the type of system they have created for us now, in economic indentured servitism.  And I think we are going to see this clash.  It begins this summer.

AS:  Okay, wait, but the “clash” between the higher powers and the lower powers begins?

WS:  No, it’s a clash between the powers-that-be and the disenfranchised, demoralized group of people who are coming to awakening that the government, the civilization that they have invested into over the period of decades is no longer interested in providing for them.  They feel abandoned, demoralized, left out.  And that group of people, by the way, are well-educated, formerly middle-class Americans, Europeans, Asians, who now under this crisis feel that they are at a turning point.  So I believe that what’s happening here is that there is an awakening going on – many people are leaving their churches, the many things that they counted on to get them through the day are no longer available.  So I believe there is this big shift going on.  You’re going to see it in the metaphysical communities; people are going to go back into metaphysics.  You’re going to see very much what happened in the ‘60s happen in a much bigger way because of the power of the internet and its ability to organize and its ability to virtually empower people.  So I believe the American public will split and take sides between those who refuse to yield to change and those who demand it.

Yes, it’s going to be an empowering time for many, many people.  This is not going to be a graceful transition as talked about in these metaphysical, new age books written in 1980.

2012 Mayan End Date: The Square Root of 1% for the Population of the United States

The Square Root of 1% for the Mayan End Date “Reality is accelerating towards an unimaginable omega point. The universe ends in a singularity. It has been growing more singular, more complex, more unique, more novel, every passing moment since its burst into existence. And if that is true than we represent the kind of concrescence of Universal intent. We are not mere spectators, or a cosmic accident, or some side show, or the Greek chorus for the main event.
The Human Experience IS the main event.”

– Terence McKenna

The Meaning of the Mayan Calendar End Date Within the Context of Modern Astrology

The Mayan Long Count Calendar was developed around 200 B.C.E. in Izapa, Mexico, using data calculated over hundreds of years. The Mayan Long Count start date according to scholars began on August 11th, 3114 B.C.E and the target end date will be on December 21st, 2012.


The Mayan Long Count End Date ( in the Long Count) represents the rare alignment of the Winter Solstice Sun crossing through the Galactic Equator along the dark band of stars at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, and the Ecliptic (the path of the Sun) that will occur exactly 11:11 AM Greenwich Mean Time.


Our solar system, the Sol System, is located in our galaxy, the Milky Way, at the outer reaches of the spiral arm, the Orion arm, and is approximately 26,000 light-years from the center. As the Solar System orbits the Milky Way galaxy it follows a path that travels above and below the equator of the galactic plane.

12-4-2012 3-42-47 PM

The Mayan Calendar is based on a 260-day astrological almanac that is based on a sacred divinatory tradition. The Mayans systematized time in blocks of 20 years and grouped these in sets of 13.

Tzolk’in 260-day astrological calendar:


The core of the Mayan Calendar is a prophetic calendar based on 13 numbers and 20 astrological day signs. The 13 numbers cycle through the Mayan day signs 20 times (13 x 20 = 260), taking 260 days for a complete cycle. A complete 260-day cycle is called a tzolkin by the Mayans, and closely correlates the Venus visibility interval (length of time as either “The Morning Star” or “The Evening Star”) of 263 days.


According to the Mayans the completion of a Long Count is 5,125 years. The Long Count is subdivided into 260 sections (5,125/260 = 19.71) resulting in nearly 20-year units of time that correlates closely with the Jupiter/Saturn cycle of 19.86 years. In modern astrology the Jupiter/Saturn cycle is considered of the greatest importance in shaping the course of history and the development and the evolution of long-term social structures (religion, law, philosophy, and government).

newsevents_banner2_170_300These 20-year intervals are known to the Maya as k’atuns. K’atuns are generational markers for the Maya that are marked by sacred ceremonies (as one ends and another begins) each having their own set of prophecies associated with them.

260 Katuns

So there are 260 k’atuns in the Long Count, and December 21st is the end of the last k’atun. Although there is no clear prophecy according to Mayan scholars for the ending of the Long Count on December 21st, there are prophecies for the groupings of the 13 k’atuns (19.71 x 13 = 256.23 years) known as the Short Count, found in the Maya sacred book of the Chilam Balam (Jaguar Priest).


The k’atuns were read by the Mayan priest for purpose of divination – in tandem with the Tzolk’in – the 260 day calendar, that foretold the fate of their civilization for that particular period.

Each of the 13 k’atun’s was named after its concluding day-sign Ahau (‘Lord’). And each day-sign had a detailed and explicit fated outcome attached to it. The most recent k’atun of 4-Ahau which began April 6th, 1993 states that this will be a time of great difficulty resulting in mankind’s disharmony of spirit. According to the Chilam Balam the delineation of k’atun 4-Ahau prophecy is a follows:

There will be scarcities of corn and squash during this k’atun and this will lead to a great mortality. It is the k’atun of remembering and recording knowledge.

This was the same k’atun period during the founding of Chichen Itza (832 AD), a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya, when the man-god Kukulcan (also known as Quetzalcoatl) arrived.


According to the Mayan Elders, during the period of 4-Ahau k’atun (1993 – 2012), resources will be scarce, natural disasters will increase, and the people will be troubled and anxious about what the future may bring. This k’atun also states a period of remembering (old) and recording knowledge. From this, many Mayan Elders believe that the Mayan Masters will reincarnate during this period to spread the wisdom and knowledge throughout the world to ease the time of purification, and open the way for collective transformation.

dark-rift-alignment-2012The next k’atun 8-Ahau will begin on December 21st, 2012, which comes at the completion of a Long Count (5,125 years) and measures the changing of the “suns” in the precession of the equinoxes: a 25,700 year galactic cycle, and the precession of a Mayan Grand Cycle of 25,630 years. According to the Chilam Balam the delineation of k’atun 2-Ahau prophecy is a follows:

For half of the k’atun there will be food, for half some misfortunes. This k’atun brings the end of the “word of God.” It is a time of uniting for a cause.

According to Mayan Elders during the period of 8-Ahau k’atun (2012 – 2032), scarcity in essential resources (food, fuel, and water) and economic distress will continue to intensify, as natural disasters will accelerate and increase in frequency. This k’atun also states the end of the “word of God.” For the Mayan Elders this will be a period where there will be collapse of false belief systems, both sacred (religious) and secular (such as science based on mechanistic materialism) as a new paradigm begins to emerge. Thus, people will lose confidence in religious leaders and government officials, leading to doubt and distrust of world leadership in providing the necessary solution and guidance during this period of unprecedented global crises.


The prophecy states “this is a time for uniting for a cause.” The Mayan Elders say this will be period of suppression of dissenting voices in all areas of life by governments creating civil unrest that will lead to violent forms of group defiance and rebellion. Nations will suppress other nations, groups will suppress other groups, and the use of violent force will increase. Therefore, we are likely to see a reemergence of large scale organized protest movements around the world, e.g. “Occupy All Street,” with the primary driving issues being social and economic inequality, corporate greed, and the unwarranted influence of banks and the financial sector on government.

Mayan Long Count End Date13. - World of the Fifth Sun
Mayan Long Count End Date13. – World of the Fifth Sun

The Mayan Calendar End Date is set for December 21st, 2012 at 11:11 AM GMT in Chichen Itza, Mexico. From the perspective of contemporary Western Astrology, the horoscope for this cosmological event shows the Solstice Sun at 0° Capricorn at the World Point shortly before dawn. The most outstanding configuration in the horoscope is a Yod, also known as the Finger of God that consists of two planets sextile (60° aspect) in relation to each other, with both quincunx (150° aspect) in relation to a third.

In the Mayan End Date horoscope, Saturn (8° Scorpio) and Pluto (8° Capricorn) are in exact sextile with each other, with both in quincunx to Jupiter (8° Gemini).  The Yod configuration aspect activates a powerful conduit of energy from the two harmonious sextile planets (Saturn and Pluto), in the direction of the quincunxed planet (Jupiter).

The meaning the Yod configuration may augur the process of collective spiritual maturation that will require humanity to discard religious dogma and restore its relationship between man and God in order to be in the right relationship with the Divine. This configuration also suggests that many of the intractable problems facing our civilization will reach crisis level, causing great suffering that will deepen humanity and make it question and be more open to a greater understanding of the higher laws of life and the universe.

Also in the horoscope figure the Moon is in Aries, separating from a conjunction of Uranus, while the Sun is close to the Galactic Equator (27° GC), exactly sextile Neptune, and forms a conjunction with Pluto.  Thus the Mayan Calendar End Date may signify a radical reconfiguration of our civilization marked by a period of deep soul searching, as humanity begins to seek the answers to its own enigma as a species and the meaning of its existence and place in the cosmos.

The Mayan Elders have stated that the meaning of the Long Count Calendar change is a time of purification and a period where humanity must undergo a collective spiritual death-rebirth transformation in order to overcome its dark, destructive nature. Therefore we are not facing a single moment of change but an era of change.

mayan_JoseArguellesAccording to Jose Arguelles, the person who put the Mayan 2012 end date on the map, says, “Everything that we know, everything that we are, is about to undergo a substantial and radical alteration.” The end result is that the human mind/body is evolving so that we can become empowered multi-dimensional beings.

Multi Dimensional

Time is accelerating due to that fact the Solar System is passing through high-energy particle zone in space. The high energy particles are bombarding our bodies affecting our (junk) DNA, thereby increasing cellular frequency. Therefore thought-to-action, e.g. the “Law of Attraction”, will accelerate along with the general rate of cause and effect.


If Arguelles is right, signs of meta-consciousness will likely increase as we begin the Mayan 5th Age of the Sun. Therefore we can expect a dramatic increase in meta-conscious states, such as intensified level of synchronicity (unique timing of events that seem related, but not caused one by the other), an awakening to ESP and telepathy (to know things outside the rational mind), heightened altered states awareness that allow one to see and feel energy fields, and the ability to remote view the future.


Western astrology also indicates that we are also in an era of change based on the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index between 2001 and 2022, and a succession of major outer planetary alignments positioned on the Cardinal Points (Equinoxes and Solstices) happening between 2008 and 2016.

Cyclic Index

The Cyclic Index is plotted by calculating ten subsets of angular separations of the five outer planets, Jupiter through Pluto. The angular separations of Jupiter-Saturn, Jupiter-Uranus, Jupiter-Neptune, etc. all the way through to the tenth subset, Neptune-Pluto, are added together and plotted on a graph.

Calculate Index 1

Calculate Index 2

Calculate Index 3

Calculate Index 4

The ascending arcs of the graph are times when the planets are moving toward (0°-180°) opposition.  In the example above the four outer planets (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) began moving toward opposition after 1914 and were farthest apart shortly after the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in September 1921.

Graph Planets Apart

The upward phase of the Cyclic Index indicates the period’s economic growth, expansion and development. The upward phase coincides with collective optimism, social stability, advances in civil rights and emancipatory movements, creative breakthroughs and innovation, scientific ingenuity, public unrestraint, and periods marked with prolific artistic creativity.

Decending Arc

Descending arcs are times when the planets are moving toward (180°-0°) conjunction. Troughs in the graph are thus planetary line-ups. In the example above, the four outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto) began moving toward conjunction after the Jupiter/Saturn opposition of July 1932 and were closest together in February 1941.

The downward phase of the Cyclic Index coincides with periods of economic contraction and financial crisis. The downward phase coincides with societal breakdown, increasing pessimism, political instability, reactionary movements, resource crisis, periods marked by confusion, general chaos, restraint and moderation, global tension, military conflict, and destructive resource wars.

Barbault Cyclical

The fluctuation of the Cyclic Index originates in the alternative movement of the ascending (0°-180°) and descending (180°-0°) phases of all the cycles, as if the solar system was expanding and contracting.  The good periods go hand-in-hand with celestial expansion, as the planets separate from each other, and the critical times occur simultaneously with planetary concentrations, or conjunctions.

Barbault 20th CenturyAs an example, in the 20th century the Index collapsed at the time of both the First and Second World Wars. Astrologers who have studied the Cyclic Index in depth agree that it is a reliable future indicator of global economic and social stability, political relations, military conflict, and technological development.

Index 2001 - 2008

The first decade of the 21st century spanning from 2000 to 2008 illustrates a long downward phase in the Cyclic Index. This period began with a significant stock market correction in March of 2000 followed by the September 11th attacks in 2001 that triggered a war in Afghanistan and subsequent U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003. In general the decade was dominated by several wide ranging topics, such as international terrorism, nuclear proliferation in North Korea and Iran, major trade imbalances, concerns over energy resources, increasing global demand of oil from the Middle East, global warming, the rising economic growth of China and the slow but steady economic decline of Japan, and the United States.

TSquare 2010
Moon-Mars-Jupiter-Saturn-Uranus-Pluto T-Square, July 30, 2010

During 2010 the slow-moving planets of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto formed a T-Square configuration (when two or more planets in opposition make a square to a third planet), within 0° of the World Points of the Cardinal signs.  The World Points are 0° of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) and 15° of fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius). Planets located at these degrees express their archetypal power on the global stage with direct and unequivocal force, like a super volcano ready erupt.

Cyclic Index 2010 - 2010

The outer planet Cardinal T-Square alignment in late July 2010 corresponded to a period marked by a tangible intensification and acceleration of imminent environmental catastrophe, and near-term exhaustion of natural resources and fossil fuels due to exponential population growth and accelerating global consumption. This period has also been marked by a stagnating global economy and a worldwide debt crisis that reached a dangerous new phase, particularly in the United States, Japan, and the Eurozone which is clearly in an advanced state of decline.


The Uranus-Pluto square alignment will have seven exact passes from 2012-15, making it the longest alignment of Uranus to Pluto in more than 500 years. In 2012, there were two of seven Uranus-Pluto square alignments. The Mayan Long Count will occur nearly 93 days after the second Uranus-Pluto alignment on September 19, 2012. If the Mayan Long Count could be compared to the hour hand of a historical clock, the Planetary Cyclic Index would be the minute hand, and the Uranus-Pluto square alignment would be equated as the second hand.


The general tenor of Uranus-Pluto alignments is revolution – the Dionysian (Pluto) impulse for revolutionary empowerment and Promethean (Uranus) thrust for radical change and innovative reform to establish a new order. Uranus-Pluto alignments have historically correlated with periods of social breakdown and the collapse of old forms and structures as potent instinctual forces emerge from within the collective that are stronger than the existing power structure to contain it.

Uranus-Pluto Square 3 of 7
The next Uranus-Pluto square alignments will occur on April 20th and on November 1st, and will be hitting the heliocentric North Node of Jupiter – the planet of economic expansion and wealth. Therefore we can expect a continued intensification and acceleration of social and political breakdown among many nations throughout the globe, particularly in the European Union, due to a weakening economic environment of bankruptcy, monetary debasement, high unemployment/underemployment rates, large scale demonstrations, nationwide strikes and riots in major cities, leading to increasing polarization and political partisanship and government in taking measures against its own citizenry, that will ultimately lead that radical reconfiguration of the monetary system and global power structure.


2012 – 2024:

A pronounced drop of the Barbault Planetary Cycle Index occurs 497 days after the Mayan End Date, during the peak of the Uranus-Pluto square alignment in the spring of 2014. The Cyclic Index continues to decline until it reaches its baseline trough in 2020-22, during the Saturn-Pluto conjunction, and remains there until 2024. The “Great Recession,” that began in 2007 (Phase I) in the United States under G.W. Bush during the Uranus-Saturn opposition when the Saturn-Pluto square was in applying orb, was followed by a liquidity crisis in 2008 . This was  followed by a sovereign debt in Europe and global bank solvency crisis in 2010 (Phase II) as the Uranus-Pluto square was in applying orb. Since 2010 the deteriorating global economy and financial markets have been artificially bolstered by massive amounts of monetary liquidity (digital money creation) by the central-banks. As we approach the Mayan Long Count in late 2012, we are close to the global economic “tipping point” (Phase III) where sovereign debt and bank solvency issues will reach crisis level in Asia, such as Japan which is already buckling.


To the Mayans, the approach of Long Count End Date represents the end of a 25,625-year long cycle that began in 3113 BC and signifies the transition from one world age to another, as humanity moves into alignment with higher consciousness. The period from 1998 – 2016 is the “Sacred Hall of Mirrors” that, according the Mayans, is a time of upheaval (storms, earthquakes, global warming, economic collapse, social revolution, food and resource shortages, radiological contamination, destructive war) that would hasten the awakening of humanity and the rise of global consciousness and become the dawn of a new era in human civilization.

Therefore, we should expect a period of continued global economic contraction leading to depression level status in certain nations including the United States, friction over trade and resources among nations, high unemployment leading to large-scale protest, an acceleration of extreme weather, and general world decay, from 2012 to 2022.


However, starting in 2023 the Cyclic Index moves into an upward phase, indicating a period of rapid economic growth, social and cultural development and general optimism. Most likely, astounding technological progress and spiritual advancement will be the central feature of this decade. In fact, it is even arguable that during this period we can expect the rise of artificial life on Earth with greater-than-human intelligence as we begin to develop the first generation computers that are self-aware with superhuman intelligence – A.I., where large computer networks that become sentient. We can also expect the development of nanotech computer/human interfaces that will give humans superhuman intelligence. Also, we can expect a major breakthrough in alternative energy systems and the full implementation of fusion power to begin to replace diminishing fossil fuel reserves. We can also expect major breakthroughs in the biological sciences that will improve the quality of human life and dramatically extend lifespan with minimal aging.  As we approach “technological singularity” by 2030, humanity will be at a turning point by being the first species to be on the verge of taking control of its own evolution. Different types of technology – genetic, robotic, information, and nanotech – will converge and will lead the human enhancement capabilities that will literally change what it means to be human.

Election 2012: GOP On The Verge Of Pulling Off An Upset in Wisconsin

According to Rasmussen Reports, Romney has now led for 12 straight days with margins of four to six points most of that time in the combined 11 key swing states won by President Obama in 2008 and thought to be competitive in 2012. The states collectively hold 146 Electoral College votes and include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. This is his highest level of support to date in the combined swing states, up five points from a month ago.

The latest Rasmussen Reports survey of Likely Wisconsin Voters shows the president and his Republican challenger each earning 49% support, with 2% still undecided. For Romney to win the White House, he absolutely needs to win North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, and New Hampshire. If he accomplishes this on Election night, he just needs to win Ohio or one other swing state to reach the magic number of 270 for victory.

The simplest path without Ohio would be for Romney to win Wisconsin.

“If the election was held today, President Barack Obama would lose the state of Wisconsin because where his base is, we have not turned out the vote early,” Mayor Michael Hancock told a Democratic rally. “The suburbs and rural parts of Wisconsin – the Republican base – are voting. President Obama’s base has yet to go vote

Among the 90% who say they have already made up their minds whom they will vote for, it’s Romney 51%, Obama 48%. Romney also has a six-point lead over Obama – 50% to 44% – among all voters in the state when they are asked which candidate they trust more to handle the economy.

So the horary question is which candidate will is winning the BadgerState, “Election 2012 – Wisconsin: Obama (48%) vs. Romney (48%)?” Horary data based on the date and time of the release of the Rasmussen Report survey released it report on October 26th, 2012 at 09:30 am EDT, Asbury Park, N.J.

Intrade, the largest predictions market in the world, gives Obama a 65% chance of winning Wisconsin with Romney only a modest chance of 35%. Therefore the President is the clear Favorite, and Romney the Underdog.

1st House: Obama Campaign
7th House: Romney Campaign
10th House: The Prize – The Wisconsin Electoral College Votes
The Moon: The Wisconsin Electorate

In the horoscope, we have a consideration before judgment present with the Ascendant near the sign boundary at 28 degrees of Scorpio rising. When the rising degree is more than 27 degrees, the matter asked about has already been settled or is so close to conclusion that the question is almost irrelevant. However, since most non-partisan poll surveys to date of the Wisconsin presidential contest have been inconclusive, we will proceed ahead with our analysis to determine who is winning in the state since every   horary represents an informational discharge of energy at the moment the question on the basis of the Hermetic dictum, “As above, as every now and again so below“.

The 1st House of the Obama Campaign is ruled by Mars. Mars is strongly placed in the 1st house and has a modest level of dignity with his reception to Venus and the Moon by Term and Face, testimonies that shows that the President foundation of his campaign is sound. However Mars is reception with Jupiter by Rulership-Face and making an opposition to the “Great Benefic” which resides in the 7th House of the Romney Campaign. A negative testimony for the President signifying he may be losing votes among disenchanted white Democrats, who voted for Obama in large numbers in 2008.

The 7th House of the Romney Campaign is ruled by Venus. Venus is somewhat dignified by triplicity but in the sign of her Fall. A mixed testimony for the Underdog that implies  a skeptical electorate that has not completely sold on Romney as a true GOP conservative. However, the Jupiter’s placement in the 7th House enhances Romney’s prospects in a traditionally Democratic state, and Venus placed at the sign boundary at 27 degrees of Virgo, will shortly ingress into Libra (the sign of her dignity), being powerfully placed in the 10th House of “the prize”. Fortuitous testimonies for the GOP Underdog that augur rising campaign momentum during the final stretch of the election.

Finally, Mercury, ruler of the 10th House resides in the 12th House is in partile aspect to Venus by sextile, while the Moon residing in the late degree of Pisces (signifying the remaining undecided and soft leaning voters) makes her first applying aspect to Mercury and her final aspect to Venus by opposition. Another set of auspicious testimonies for the GOP Underdog signifying a major upset is in the making in the Badger State.

Conclusion: Obama Is Now On Course to Losing Wisconsin

Winner: Mitt Romney

Update: Nov 1, 11:08 AM — Wisconsin: Obama 49%, Romney 49% – Latest Numbers 

Wisconsin which may prove to be the key to the entire presidential contest remains a tie less than week before Election Day. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Wisconsin Voters finds President Obama and Mitt Romney each earning 49% support. Two percent (2%) remain undecided. Wisconsin remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Obama carried Wisconsin by a 56% to 42% margin in 2008. The race in the Badger State was also tied last week after the president has led there in most surveys since October of last year. During that time, Obama has earned 44% to 52% of the vote, while Romney’s support has ranged from 41% to 49%. Twenty-five percent (25%) of likely Wisconsin voters have already voted, and the president leads 56% to 41% among these voters. Voters in the state trust Romney more than the president by just two points – 50% to 48% – when it comes to handling the economy. Obama has a three-point edge in voter trust – 50% to 47% – in the area of energy policy and leads by one – 49% to 48% – when it comes to national security. Among voters nationwide, Romney leads by seven on the economy, and the two are nearly tied in the other areas.

Final Presidential Debate Prediction: Obama vs. Romney

Now comes the third and final debate, Oct. 22, in the battleground state of Florida, just 15 days before Election Day. For the president and Romney, the stakes could not be higher, therefore the question is who will win the final presidential debate?

Obama vs. Romney: Who will win the final presidential debate?
Question asked by astrologer while watching a CNN segment about the 3rd Presidential debate on October 20th 2012 at 07:07 pm EDT, New York, N.Y.

According toe Intrade, the worlds largest prediction market, the President has a  70% probability of winning the 3rd presidential debate with Romney only given a modest 37% chance.  Therefore the President is the Favorite and Romney is the Underdog.

1st House – “the Favorite”: President Obama
7th House – “the Underdog”: Governor Romney
10th House – “the Prize”: The General Election
The Moon – “the Electorate”: The Undecided Voters

In the horoscope figure, Taurus rises. Therefore Venus rules the 1st House of the Obama campaign. Venus is in her joy in the 5th House making an applying trine to the benefic North Node, indicating the focus on international affairs that will work favorably for President. However Venus is in her Fall indicating that the President will have only a modest level of  confidence going into the debate.  Jupiter, the great benefic, occupies the 1st house a fortuitous testimony that gives the President an advantage and raises expectations of Obama’s debate performance.  However Jupiter is in his detriment in Gemini, retrograde in motion, and being squared by Venus – Obama’s ruler. Problematic testimonies that indicate that President will possess only a modest level of success in defending his initial response to the Benghazi consulate attack, and be unconvincing in his attempt to articulate his foreign policy strategy going forward.

Since Scorpio is on the 7th House cusp, Mars is the significator for the Romney campaign. Mars is in strongly placed in the 7th House, peregrine, and in opposition to Jupiter, indicating that Romney will be challenged to articulate specific policies that distinguish him as a  international leader that understand the challenges of a 21st century world, in a way that does not offend his Republican base. Also Romney will have to defend  attacks from that President as a foreign-policy flip-flopper  who is unprepared to handle the issues on the world stage. However Mercury (universal ruler of debates and verbal exchanges) is conjunct the 7th House Cusp, sextile Venus and applies by conjunction to the North Node, a favorable set of  testimonies for the Romney, signifying his ability to put aside those attacks and  move on to other issues where he has more of an advantage.

The Moon – which rules the undecided voters and “soft” leaning voters watching the debate, is in the sign of her detriment. Signifying a skeptical and distressed electorate. The Moon makes a her first aspect to Venus – Obama’s ruler, indicating that the President will  likely preform well in the first half of the debate as he accentuates the positive and portrays himself as  strong commander in-chief. However the Moon’s next aspect is a sextile to Mercury. A testimony that strengthens Romney’s performance in the second half of the debate as he effectively redirects how some foreign policy issues have a direct impact on domestic issues such as economic growth and jobs at home.

Although there are a number of supportive horary testimonies that augur victory for  Obama, the Moon’s last  aspect is a square to the Sun, (the universal ruler of the head of state), a problematic testimony for the President that indicates that he is losing his credibility gap among voters about bread and butter issues such as jobs and the economy (Moon in Capricorn). Finally, the South Node resides in Obama’s 1st House, a impediment in any horary chart indicative of a negative outcome due to some form of self-undoing. Thus the President is prone to making egregious error during the debate while trying to stay on the offensive with Romney.

Since neither Romney’s significator, nor the Moon make an aspect to the ruler of the 10th  House  – Saturn, it is unlikely that the  former Governor will be able to use the 3rd Presidential Debate as a means to close the deal with any undecided voters who haven’t yet made up their minds. However, although the mainstream media may initially declare Obama as the winner (Moon trine Venus) it is clear that Obama will not be able to use the debate as means to gain a clear advantage over his GOP opponent and thwart his growing momentum.

Winner: Mitt Romney

  • 49% Say Romeny Won the Presidentail Debates, 41% Say Obama

Most voters consider the three presidential debates at least somewhat important to how they will vote, and a plurality thinks Mitt Romney is the overall debate winner. Just eight percent (8%) of Likely U.S. Voters did not watch any of the debates. Sixty-three percent (63%) watched a portion or all of all three debates. Fourteen percent (14%) watched some or all of one of the debates, 15% some or all of two of the prime-time televised encounters. Among voters who watched the debates, 49% say Romney was the winner. Forty-one percent (41%) think President Obama came out on top. Four years ago, 47% of voters said Obama was the overall winner of the three debates, while 33% thought Republican nominee John McCain had been victorious. Republicans this year are a bit more confident in their nominee’s performance than Democrats are: 84% of GOP voters who watched the debates think Romney was the overall winner, compared to 78% of Democrats who feel Obama was the champ.  Among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties, the GOP challenger was seen as the winner by a 50% to 31% margin. While both sides complained about this year’s debate moderators, 51% of voters who watched the debates think the moderators played a neutral role. Forty-two percent (42%) believe they tried to help the president versus just four percent (4%) who feel they tried to help Romney. Among all voters, 66% rate the debates as at least somewhat important in terms of how they will vote, but that includes only 24% who consider them Very Important. Thirty-two percent (32%) view the debates as unimportant, but just eight percent (8%) regard them as Not At All Important. Not surprisingly, those who watched the debates are more likely to consider them important to their vote than those who did not watch.


Global Banking Insolvency Crisis Imminent

On June 21st, Moody’s finally delivered on its forewarned downgrade on 15 global banks after the close of the stock market. All but four banks were cut at least two notches, and these are some of the biggest banks in the world.  Those hit included Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Scotland, BNP Paribas,  UBS, and Deutsche Bank  – financial powerhouses domestically and internationally that are household names in the United Staes, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland.  Japan’s Numara and Australia’s Macquarie were also downgraded earlier by Moody’s.

Above, the event horoscope of Moody’s downgrade of 15 global banks and firms  as per June 21st, 2012 at 5:36 pm EDT, in New York, according to CNN. The Moody downgrade horoscope shows convincingly with compelling symbolism a bank solvency crisis.

In the horoscope both the Sun and the Moon resided in the 8th House of debt, insolvency, and crisis. The solstice Sun is aligned along the World Point. The World Points are 0 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) and 15 degrees of fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius). Planets located at these degrees express their archetypal power on the global stage with direct and unequivocal force, like a super volcano ready erupt.

The Sun applies to a T-Square configuration with the Uranus-Pluto square alignment, a volatile planetary combination that augurs breakdown, interruption, and collapse. The Uranus-Pluto squares took place just 3 day later on June 24th.  There are seven (7) exact squares between Uranus and Pluto within a three-year period from 2012 to 2015.

Historically, the square between Uranus-Pluto alignment intensify the collective impulse for radical and sweeping change that often causes great disruptions in civilization resulting in economic breakdown and bank failures, substantial  disruption in trade and commerce, unstable exchange markets, currency wars, massive intervention by central banks, and political and social instability from from large scale protest that result in violent civil insurrections against the perceived authority figures deemed responsible for the crisis.

Also in the event horoscope, Mercury rules the 8th House.  Mercury is the universal ruler of rating agencies that determine the credit rate for stocks and bonds. Mercury’s position in the 8th House is symbolic of the rating agency: Moody’s. The Moon, also in the 8th House, separates from from Mercury, indicative of Moody’s downgrade rating call.  However, the Moon is dignified in her sign –  Cancer, but void-of-course suggesting the lack of concern Moody’s downgrade call by  investors and the little coverage it received by the mainstream media in the days that followed.

Although one could go further into the portent’s of this event horoscope, the symbolism is clear that the global banks financial condition is relatively weak and their ability to meet their financial obligations will likely be affected by any further adverse economic, financial or business conditions.

Below is an overview of the list of the 15 Global banks and firms downgraded.

1) Bank of America, N.A. (BAC)

Long-term deposit rating to A3 from A2, outlook stable; Short-term to P-2 from P-1

2 ) Barclays Bank plc (BARC.L)

Long-term issuer rating to A2 from Aa3, outlook negative; Short-term P-1 affirmed

3 ) BNP Paribas (BNP.PA)

Long-term debt and deposit rating to A2 from Aa3; outlook stable; Short-term P-1 affirmed.

4 ) Citibank, N.A.  (C)

Long-term deposit rating to A3 from A1, outlook stable; Short-term to P-2 from P-1

5 ) Credit Agricole S.A. (ACA.PA)

Long-term debt and deposit rating to A2 from Aa3, outlook negative; Short-term P-1 affirmed

6 ) Credit Suisse AG (CS )

Long-term deposit and senior debt rating to A1 from Aa1, outlook stable; Short-term P-1 affirmed

7 ) Deutsche Bank AG (DB)

Long-term deposit rating to A2 from Aa3, outlook stable; Short-term P-1 affirmed

8 ) Goldman Sachs Bank USA (GS)

Long-term deposit rating to A2 from Aa3, outlook stable; Short-term P-1 affirmed

9 ) HSBC Bank plc (HBC)

Long-term deposit rating to Aa3 from Aa2, outlook negative; Short-term P-1 affirmed

10 ) JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (JPM)

Long-term deposit rating to Aa3 from Aa1, outlook stable; Short-term P-1 affirmed

11 ) Morgan Stanley Bank, N.A. (MS)

Long-term deposit rating to A3 from A1, outlook stable; Short-term to P-2 from P-1

12 ) Royal Bank of Canada (RY)

Long-term deposit rating to Aa3 from Aa1, outlook stable; Short-term P-1 affirmed

13 ) Royal Bank of Scotland plc ( RBS )

Long-term deposit rating to A3 from A2; outlook negative; Short-term to P-2 from P-1

14 ) Societe Generale ( GLE.PA )

Long-term debt and deposit to A2 from A1; outlook stable; Short-term P-1 affirmed

15 ) UBS AG (UBS)

Long-term debt and deposit to A2 from Aa3, outlook stable; Short-term P-1 confirmed.
Moody’s ratings downgrade move will make it more expensive for the banks to attract new funds. It’s also feared that the downgrades has essentially set the  trigger for a possible market panic resulting to a new exodus to precious metal and gold.

Moody’s credit downgrade occurred 12 days before the Libor (London Inter-Bank Offered Rate) interest rate rigging scandal was exposed on July 3rd by the Gardian in a article titled “Private Banks Have Failed – We Need a Public Solution”). Both  events occurred within days of the first Uranus-Pluto square alignment and and during the when the Federal Reserve is concerned about a sinking U.S. economy, fiscal cliffs and a crushing EU debt crisis.

Investment banker and Wall Street insider James Rickards says the Libor rate rigging scandal “is the greatest fraud and greatest potential liability in history.”  He thinks the rate rigging banks could be liable for  “$2.5 trillion,” with “The potential damages could destroy the banking system.”

Therefore as we approach the second Uranus-Pluto Square alignment in late September we can anticipate a further increase in high-impact, difficult-to-predict “black-swan” type of  events that will continue to destabilize global markets undermining confidence in the financial system.

In November, there will be a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio. Financial astrologer Bill Meridian, in his book Planetary Economic Forecasting, has pointed out that historically solar eclipses in the sign of Taurus and Scorpio have correlated with financial volatility, stress and downward pressure on markets, and panics.

The Sun/Moon midpoint of the eclipse is applying by semi-square to Pluto and  separating from Uranus by sesquiquadrate, an explosive combination that correlates with severe and radical shifts in financial positions, extreme market volatility followed by corrections and protracted crisis.

When a eclipses makes adverse aspects to natal planets in the horoscope it often dramatically reduces the statue of a person or entity.  The AIR blackbox comparative analysis of the November Solar Eclipse to the  horoscopes of the global banks,  shows that six of the fifteen listed global banks will be adversely (red) challenged by this mundane event.

Looking ahead, we can evaluate a 200 day forecast against each global bank horoscope.using  a mutli blackbox scheme using a model created by financial astrologer Alphee Lavoie based on a Donald Bradley’s siderograph techique which is essentially a curve based forecasting method based on transiting aspects.

I selected the 200 days starting September 1st 2012. We’re primarily interested in the last row, the one I circled labeled Sum Activity. Red periods forecast lower prices, green higher.  Looking over the next 100 days of the Sum Activity row, red dominates the row and the trend for that period is down.

Conclusion: There hasn’t been a time during any economic recovery  when a major credit ratings company has downgraded this many major banks in so many parts of the world at one fell swoop.  It is clear that the global economy  is extremely fragile and severe shock to the financial system would likely result in a series of “flash” market crashes and although it appears to the public, as non-event, the astrological portents of Moody’s rating call portends that we are on the verge of another global financial crisis, that at its very core is a bank solvency crisis.

Japan Is The Next Greece

Japan’s public borrowings, the world’s biggest, will balloon to 245.6% of its annual economic output in 2014, up from 67.3 percent in 1984. According Takeshi Fujimaki, former adviser to billionaire investor George …Soros, Japan may default within five years. Fujimaki said, “The yen and the JGB market are in a bubble,” Fujimaki said. “With the gigantic debt Japan has accumulated, a thin needle, or even a gentle breeze may pop this. Events in Europe can possibly trigger this to blow up.” Fujimaki closed with, “There’s no way out of Japan’s crisis,” Fujimaki said. “The only option left for Japan is either default or print money into hyper-inflation.” Fujimaki says Japan will default in 5 years, but the astrological blackbox economic forecast shows that Japan will is already in the process of defaulting on its debt and we can expect the Japanese Central Bank to continue printing massive amounts YEN to hold off the coming finanical tsunami in 2014.
