Mundane Astrology, What’s Really Happening with the Economy, and What You Can Do

Transcribed from The Astrology Show with Mj Patterson
“What’s Coming in 2015 with William Stickevers”
(Airdate: January 2, 2015)

Mj Patterson: I’m delighted to welcome back William Stickevers from San Francisco.  He’s calling in from a great distance to have a chat with us about the year ahead.  Here we come, 2015.  Let’s find out.  Are we going to make money?  Are we going to lose money?  Is something going to explode?  What’s the deal?  So, welcome, William.

William Stickevers: Thank you for having me again, Mj.  It’s a real pleasure.  I really enjoyed our last interview and I’m totally psyched about talking about 2015 because, well, get your seatbelts on — it’s going to be a rough ride next year.

Mj:  Yeah, that’s what everyone’s saying.

William:  It will be very interesting.  There’s a lot to talk about.

Mj:  I think a lot of my senior students, they feel a kind of drift in the ocean when they don’t mind doing a birth chart and they can do your basic progressions and transits.  But when somebody asks them a big question “what’s going to happen in 2015,” I think they feel that they don’t know what to pick up first.  Do you have any advice?

William:  Well, first of all, what we’re talking about here is mundane astrology, which is a whole other gamut of perspective, tools, worldview.  It’s actually [a way of] trying to understand a civilization [through astrology] the way we study a personality as a psychic structure that is developing and unfolding and self-actualizing as a person, through [the lens of] a personal chart.  Everyone goes through their own personal self-actualization.  Astrologers look at horoscopes to help guide individuals in that process of that self-actualization, especially if that self-actualization has been somewhat interrupted or in a state of trauma or distress.  We look at the same things by applying mundane [astrological] techniques to looking at horoscopes of a nation state or events, and using a host of other astrological techniques and approaches that give us [global] perspective on what [Carl] Jung would call the archetypal development of the collective unconscious that is emerging on the world stage.

Mj:  And it really is a horse of an entirely different color, isn’t it?

William:  Yes, it’s completely different and we have to be much more objective in our approach which is very difficult.  We have to take away our partisan political leanings and we actually sometimes have to strip away a lot of our precepts of how the world ought to be.

Mj: (laughs) Yeah.

William:  What are the mundane portents really telling us? One of the things that’s really interesting about mundane astrology in particular, is that most astrologers are pretty much in agreement with the meanings of major alignments such as Saturn-Neptune or Jupiter-Uranus, Uranus-Pluto, etc. They’re pretty much in agreement [about their underlying archetypal meaning and expression], where you don’t find that in natal astrology.

Mj:  Not nearly so much.  I will concur.  I think that’s a very sound observation.

William:  Yes.  So in a way it is sometimes much easier, where mundane astrologers can get together and we find that we agree on 80% of how we see things unfolding, and [the remaining] 20% is areas that we’re disagreeing in, which [often] is subtle. And that’s a good thing; I like that. Where with natal astrology, it’s almost like trying to herd cats together.

Mj: (laughs) Yeah, I’ve heard that used before with astrologers, for sure.

William:  Right.  So what we’re going to talk about today is looking at two horoscopes that will give us an idea of what we can expect [in 2015-16], where things are moving towards, and what possibly we can do about it, to whatever level we can.

Mj:  Do you have — I should’ve asked you this before we started but let me ask you now — do you have a website where you might have these charts displayed?  Because I could put a link to that from my site and the listeners could have a chance to go ahead and take a look at them.

William:  Sure.  My website is williamstickevers.com and I have specially on my site on my blog forecasts for the astrological year 2014 and all those charts are listed there.

Mj:  That’s perfect.  So I’ll make sure to signpost everybody over there so they can enjoy the visual while you’re explaining it.  That’s going to make it really good for them.

William:  Right.  Now the other thing I want to establish here is that from the way I do traditional mundane astrology — and I use the word tradition, going back to the tradition — that March 20th was the astrological new year, not January 1st, not December 21st.

Mj:  Absolutely.  Agreed.  Yep, going for the equinox, you mean, the spring equinox.

William:  Correct.  And so therefore, astrological 2014 will go into January, February, and into most of March of next year.

Mj:  Cool.  Okay.

W:  So we’re still in 2014 on January 1st [2015], folks, in terms of how mundane astrologers match up the year and make forecasts.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  So, saying that, we can look at the chart of 2015 using the March ingress, and we could also take the December 21st chart when the Sun ingresses into 0 Capricorn and get an idea of the last quarter of 2014.

Mj:  Well, I figured that one out so — I’m just going to put my cards right on the table: I am not a mundane astrologer.  I have my CA-NCGR so of course I have enough mundane astrology to be able to nod wisely when someone like yourself who is a mundane astrologer discusses things; I don’t feel like a complete numpty.  But you’re streets ahead of me on this one, William.

William:  Well, you know, it’s simply because I have dedicated, I would say, hundreds to thousands of hours doing this [work].  I’ve read probably 200 books on [or related to] mundane astrology [over nearly 30 years], and not only that, I read books like Don’t Bank On ItThe Death of Money, numerous books on geopolitics. I have subscriptions to newsletters from some of the best people I consider in the business, if not in the world who do financial forecasting.  So I’m totally immersed in it, and it’s something that I feel I need to do now in order to give people perspective.  And the [main] reason I was pushed into this [study] was I wasn’t able to give my clients the answers to many of the problems they were beginning to have [back in 2007-2008]. For example, Jupiter was transiting their 10th house of career so they should have gotten a [well-paying] job, during their peak earning years and were not employed, especially having a master’s degree, and they were unemployed for over two years [when they came to me for a reading.]

Mj:  Wow.

William:  Yes…living in New York City.  So I said to myself, I’ve got to figure out what’s going on here because the old rules in natal astrology weren’t working. For example, you’ve got transiting Jupiter and Solar Arc Uranus hits your Sun everything should be happening and it wasn’t happening for them.

Mj:  Got ya.

William:  So that’s what pushed me into this.

Mj:  I have to say, I had a very similar experience.  My mom’s in this little club and they play on the stock market — it’s the Toronto Stock Exchange, though, not the DOW Jones or any of those.  But so I thought, this is kind of cool, maybe I’ll have a little fun here, learn a little bit about astrology and try to help them out.  And none of the indicators that the “baby” books — because I was starting out, right — none of the indicators were applying anymore.  It’s almost like the rules are being changed under our feet.

William:  Absolutely.  And it has.  It has in so many ways.  And one of the problems today is that many of the astrologers who are counseling who are not keeping their world view updated and looking at where the trends are moving are not able to help their clients at the level they once were able to.  And that’s one of my goals is to inform the astrological community that being aware of the mundane cycles will help you become a better consulting astrologer.

Mj:  It seems only logical.

William:  So a lot has been going on.  I predicted quite a bit for 2014.  I believe the best — or worst — is yet to come in this last quarter, especially now that we are in the last two Uranus-Pluto squares.

Mj: Yep.

William:  And I believe what we’re seeing, in essence, is a collective revolution and a massive upheaval of the [current] power structure and system in governance, and economics, and even the sciences.  There’s a complete revolution going on.  It’s happening worldwide.  There’s more protests, strikes, changes in government that have been occurring at an unprecedented rate.

Mj:  Indeed.  And I had a little fun, not knowing any of this stuff, I did the only thing I knew how to do and I researched and I looked back in time.  And there’s some crazy stuff, man.  The Nazi takeover of Germany, apparently, in 1933 was a Pluto-Uranus square.  They even cover Genghis Khan; they call him “master of medieval blitzkrieg” and that was in 1201.  And that was a conjunction, mind you, but they were basically on the war path throughout the waxing square.  So, yeah, I think it’s going to be pretty crazy.

William:  Yes.  In fact, look at the last Uranus-Pluto conjunction.  We had the ’60s protests, the counterculture revolution.

Mj:  Yep.

William:  We had a revolution in the sciences at the time.  We had the psychedelic revolution, we had the space age revolution, the microprocessor revolution, the computer revolution.  We also had revolutions in art, film, and it was also the golden age of television.

Mj:  And it almost seems like one foot, the other foot.  Because what I’m reading is, yes, they had these revolutions and then they had this power backlash where people were trying to squash, like the Nazi takeover of Germany, they actually mention the illegalization of LSD during the square.  So it’s like there’s busting out all over and then there’s people getting really stressed out about that, the people who are trying to hang on to the power and really putting the boot down.

William:  Well, yes.  It also stirs up the oligarchical elite or the [fossilized] patriarchal power structure to strike back [at the masses]. Keep in mind the repressive properties get constellated as well. That’s the shadow side of these Uranus-Pluto alignments which many people avoid talking about.  And we’re seeing that now those repressive measures by government through the Patriot Act, and the various other bills that are being pushed through [executive order] without due process of law that are taking away habeas corpus.

Mj:  Yeah, we’re having the same problems.  It’s not a national thing either because in Canada, we’re dealing with exactly the same thing.

William:  Right.  So that’s really the icing on the top.  What’s really happening as well, and what you have to realize is that these things are being put in place because they’re protection measures to [prop-up and] keep an obsolete system going and to prevent it from fracturing and imploding on its own weight.  And that has to do with the [large-scale] economic systems that are in place.  So what we’re witnessing now is really the collapse of that system.

Mj:  I wish I could find the article that I noted because I’ve been looking at this for the last few months, just being nosy, trying to peek under the covers.  And I can’t remember which angle it was, but somebody had written — it might even have been you — about that in the past when we had these outer transits — and I don’t know if it was Neptune-Saturn, I can’t remember — but it was that money systems tend to change and that the last time we had this we went from the gold standard or silver standard to paper money.

William:  Actually, I think I did write that article and I correlated every time that we had a Uranus-Pluto alignment, most every time, we had a shift in status or change in the world’s reserve currency.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  And what many people don’t know, is that in order for any country in the world to trade– whether it’s goods, services, oil or commodities, gold — it has to be done through U.S. dollars. Because U.S. Dollar is the world standard. So nations have to hold U.S. dollars [in their Central Banks] because that’s considered means by which trade settlements and [international] commerce can occur.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  Now today, what’s happening is because the U.S. dollar is no longer backed by gold, but rather backed by debt, and the United States is no longer able to repay that debt, that the world is beginning to move away from the U.S. dollar and move to other [multilateral] mechanisms where trade settlement can occur. And that’s mainly through the development of the Chinese yuan swap mechanism, along with an alternative SWIFT [Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication] system, that the Russians are putting in place now.

Mj:  Well, I’ve been watching China buy up American debt for some time now and waiting to see if anyone was going to notice.

William:  Everyone is talking about that right now and the Chinese are fundamentally so tied into America.  But the thing is, and what most people don’t realize, is the bigger issue of a global de-dollarization movement taking place. And that de-dollarization is more threatening to the Anglo-American banking system than anything else going on.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  And that collapse of the Anglo-American banking system will initiate a multi-polar world, instead of a unipolar world that we have now. Moving from a unipolar post-1945 world to a multi-polar world.  And that’s really what this Uranus-Pluto is moving us toward.  It will be the end of the Petrodollar hegemony that we see.

Mj:  Gotcha.

William:  And it will be the emergence of a new world order.

Mj:  Well, that’s kind of neat because we are sort of skating our way haphazardly towards to the age of Aquarius.  So certainly it is an algorithm that better suits an Aquarian mindset.

William:  Well, yes, especially with the emergence of cryptocurrencies, which the youth is actively doing. As you know, Uranus is really the planet of youth.  And with Uranus-Pluto in 2010 you saw the emergence of Bitcoin, and then soon after, other cryptocurrencies.  And the kids today are using the Dark Net, to do commerce by trading for goods and services using Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies that have no [oversight or] control by central banks or any government agency.

Mj:  Got ya.

William:  So, no taxation.  So this is the real revolution that is going on, and here’s what it’s all about: it’s about no longer using the dollar as a means of international trade settlement.  And they’re using the internet and cryptocurrencies, and all other means of doing business with each other.  And all this is [happening and] moving rapidly.  So what we’re seeing at the same time is the breakdown of the United States as the world economic engine per se, that’s affecting the growth of rest of the world. So at some point it will become a fact that the U.S. is no longer going to remain the central hub [of the global economy]. And the U.S. is going to go through some form of a [financial] reset. This will be part of a global reset event.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  So there will be a global political reset, an economic political reset, a financial reset, and it’s all coming to a head.

Mj:  Yeah.  And I think, too, that it’s really interesting to watch.  It’s not that the governments have gotten any worse; they’ve always been horrible.  Recently it’s been demonstrated in law that our extent Prime Minister is a criminal.  He actually forged the last election.  He is, in fact, in power illegally, and nobody’s doing anything about it.  But the thing is, people are getting less and less tolerant of this behavior.  And that’s what I find interesting.  The average person is just “mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.”  So it’s going to be an interesting year.

William:  The 2015 – 2016 period, as we begin the traditional new year, on January 1st, the “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore ” theme is going to take hold strongly [within the collective]. You’re going not only going to see that with the government, you’re going to see that in large-scale organizations, in companies, in communities, and in marriages as well. You’re going to see that in school lunchrooms, in prisons, in every area. It’s going to seem like the whole world is starting to just lose it.

Mj:  Yep.

William:  Because when people have nothing else to lose, they lose it.  And that’s where people are at.

Mj:  Yeah.  They’re on the raggedy edge, aren’t they?  I think that’s true, and it’s nice, it’s wonderful that we’re having this cross-border conversation because I’m not talking from a Canadian perspective.  You’re not talking from an American perspective.  This is the deal, baby, and it’s a global deal.

William:  Right.  And that’s what I said in my 2014 article that I published on March 20th, “Global Revolution Goes Full Throttle.”  And we’re going to see that.  We’re seeing that now with Ukraine, and we’ve been seeing that all last year.  And I believe that revolution theme of “I’m sick and tired and I’m not going to take it anymore” is going to happen now. People are going to lose complete trust in the system because — economies are all based on trust.  And once there’s no sense of trust, the system begins to break down.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  And that is exactly what we are now witnessing.  And that is the thing folks need to keep in mind.  What is money?  What does money mean?  And they’re going to realize they no longer trust what they’re being told what their money is anymore.  Especially when it can do less and less for them.

Mj:  Yeah, this is cool.  So for those people who are learning, who want to get involved with the mundane astrology, they want to get their toes wet, how could you coach them?  Is there a book they should read?  Obviously, they are going to check out your website, which is fantastic, which I just want to say is williamstickevers.com.  So, folks, that’s a good place to go to start your journey.  But what else would you recommend?  Here’s what I know — I know that 0 Aries and 0 Capricorn are really important in mundane astrology.  That’s about it, and I’ve learned from you tonight that the beginning of a mundane year is at the spring equinox, which is really cool and thank you for teaching me that.  And that’s pretty much where I’m at.

William:  Yeah, look, I have to say this, mundane astrology is a vast subject.  There are as many techniques in mundane astrology as there are in natal astrology. Now, if you can’t see the answer your client has in transits, can’t see it using progressions, and even tertiaries aren’t working for you, and you decide to use a new natal technique [or horary] to get the answer, that is stretching it.  In mundane astrology, we have many techniques as well that’s very much tied up with cycles.  Like the Hindu yoga cycles; the Plato great years cycle; the processional great years cycle; the cycles between the collective planets and Uranus-Neptune-Pluto; the declination cycles in Uranus-Neptune-Pluto; the cycles between a social and collective planet such as Jupiter-Saturn, Uranus-Neptune-Pluto; the cyclic index of Gouchon and Barbault; the world horoscope; the collective planet cycles of national charts; the cycles of intermediates planets, such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  And we have the annual cycles that focus on the time and location with long-term trends.  And then we have the solar cycle, the lunar cycles, and the daily cycles.

Mj:  So arguably if you’re using solar-lunar you’re using the Saros cycles, the eclipse cycles as well, then.

William:  Correct, absolutely.  In fact, the fastest way you can get yourself immersed in mundane astrology is by understanding the eclipse cycle.

Mj:  Cool!

William:  And then looking at the outer planet cycles which the Barbault and Gouchon index measure.  Because people can understand graphs pretty easily.

Mj:  Yeah.

William:  It’s pretty intuitive when you see the line of the graph go up or down to where things are moving towards.  So there are many other techniques out there that one must get immersed in — ingresses, lunations, eclipses is the first step.  And then taking it further, you can get into the cycles of the outer planets as the Barbault Index does, which has proven itself over and over again to be the most reliable indicator of the global economy and political stability and the development of civilization in history.  And by the way, that indicator right now is showing a [sharp] downward trend between 2014 and 2022.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  So we’re going to have on this index, which I actually looked at since 1 AD and analyzed it all the way until current time and correlated with all the major historical events.

Mj:  So that’s what I love.  I just need to pause you there because, did you hear that, listeners?  He started with 1 AD, and he studied all that back-data.  Why?  So that he can use forward-data effectively and accurately.  This is the science of astrology.  Go ahead, William.

William:  Well, basically what we do is we take the outer planets and we determine when they’re moving closest to each other, the line goes down.  When they’re moving furthest from each other, the line goes up.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  So the line goes down, that is a period of involution and breakdown and crisis and contraction, revolution, upheaval.  When the line goes up, that’s a period of development, constructive periods where you see recovery, social conditions improving, stability, optimism, a lot of constructive developments occur.  So we look at that and see for example if you look at the 20th century, there was a big drop in 1914 to 1919.  That was the time when World War I occurred.

Mj:  Mm-hmm.

William:  Then you had the Roaring ’20s where the line goes shooting up.  And then the line drops significantly starting in ’29 and bottoms in ’32, and that was the time where the world was initiated into the Great Depression.

Mj:  Sure.  The Dirty Thirties.

William:  The line stabilizes and then makes a really big drop from ’39 into ’43/’44 which correlated with the biggest battles in World War II.

Mj:  Mm-hmm.

William:  Then the line stabilizes throughout the ’50s, takes another drop again and that correlates with the Korean War.  The line moves up again and then you have that period in the early ’60s where we had the Space Race and the JFK era.

Mj:  And peace and love, man.  Don’t forget, peace and love, man.

William:  That’s right, so we have that, the ’60s revolution.  The line takes another dramatic drop in ’73 and that was the oil crisis, you’ll remember.

Mj:  Yep.

William:  And we also had that war in the Middle East and we had massive inflation.

Mj:  Up here we had a typical mortgage rate in that time because my mom went and bought a house during that time.  It was something crazy like 25%.

William:  Right.  So then the line hits a real bottom in ’82; that is called the Second Cold War.  And then the line begins moving up rapidly from ’85 onward and that’s when Gorbachev takes power, that’s when Glasnost and Perestroika happen, and also when the economies of Japan and Germany are thriving and become major partners with the United States.  It’s a booming period.  Then the line drops in the early ’90s when the Soviet Union collapses. And then the line shoots up nonstop from around ’93 to 2001, and what did we see?

Mj:  Okay.

William:  We see this boom period of irrational exuberance take place, with this massive bubble build up. Then all of a sudden [out of nowhere] 9/11 occurs, the Dot Com Bubble implodes, and then the line stabilizes all the way through until 2006.  And then it begins dropping and it drops again until 2009.  And you see the financial crisis occur, the collapse of the Lehman crisis, and the global financial implosion.  You see massive deleveraging of the Middle Class occur and double-digit unemployment worldwide.  Then the line stabilizes between 2008 until 2014 and then it begins the biggest drop, a 500-point drop which correlates very closely with the collapse of the Roman Empire between May of 2014 until September 2022.

Mj:  Crikey.  Yeah, because that is when we were thinking that there might be a hit on the stock market around Easter time [2014] and I was really surprised that it didn’t seem to show up.

William:  Well, let me explain that.  A lot of people think the stock market is the market to watch.  It is not.  It is the least sophisticated and smallest market.  The total capitalization is only $60 trillion.

Mj:  I’m sorry, did you say only $60 trillion?  Oh my God.

William:  It’s about the capitalization of Microsoft.  No, excuse me, let me take that back.  It’s the total market capitalization of one year’s global GNP, $60 trillion.

Mj:  Wow.  Okay.

William:  Now, what’s larger than that is the bond market.  That’s over $100 trillion.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  And what’s even bigger than that is the currency market, the FOREX market, the commodities, the currencies.  And they trade at $5 trillion a day.

Mj:  Crikey.

William:  Now take $5 trillion and multiply it by 365.  That’s a huge number.

Mj:  That’s a big number.  Oh yeah.

William:  So here’s the thing.  When people talk about the stock market, especially the astrologers, they have very little understanding that the stock market is the last thing to be affected by…

Mj:  The last thing to go — not the first thing to go…

William:  Yes, that is the last thing to go.  You want to look at is at the commodities market, the currency markets, what the central banks are doing, and then after that, you want to look at the bond markets.  And I can tell you that if you look at that, and you look at what has recently transpired exactly on the day of the Uranus-Pluto alignment on December 15th — what happened that day?

Mj:  I do not know.  Teach me.

William:  The Russian ruble.

Mj:  Did it devalue?  Oh yeah!  I remember hearing about this.

William:  Now that is very important.  Why?  It’s important because the ruble is very tied in with oil, the way the Russians sell their oil to the Europeans who are extremely dependent on them.  And remember, Russia is the largest oil and gas provider in the world, not the Middle East.  That being said, the fact that the ruble is being devalued and the Russian economy is about to collapse is a very telling sign because that will set off a Credit Soft Swap [CDS] from a crashing derivative.  Now, derivatives are bets on bets [with no oversight], and Russian oil futures contracts based on trading around $90 a barrel., and trading companies hedge their bets on future contracts with derivatives.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  Now remember, the derivative market is worth 10 times the amount of the stock market.

Mj:  Crikey.

William:  Yes.  It’s bigger than the stock market, it’s bigger than the bond market.  And who also uses derivatives?  [Too Big to Fail] Banks.

Mj: Oh…

William:  All “too big to fail” banks make their money, not by lending money anymore — that’s old school.  That’s why they don’t lend money out.  They don’t lend it to anyone for that matter; that’s why the money supply is lower than it was in 1932.  In other words, the circulation of money is occurring less than at the height of the Great Depression.

Mj:  Crikey.

William:  So the banks get money from the government.  They keep that money, and they then invest that money into the derivatives market and what is left over to the stock market.  And the derivatives market is tied in directly with the currency market.  And so, when there are derivative contracts, or $90 oil, and oil is now trading at $50, and now going to $20…

Mj:  Yeah, we know this in Canada because Alberta right now is our oil patch, I guess you could say, and you’re talking to me in Nova Scotia which is on our east coast, and everybody here goes out west to get work and sends the money home.  So everybody’s just been laid off and they’ve all come home just before Christmas.

William:  That’s right.  So what we’re seeing here is those derivative contracts are going to be due by January [2016].  So what I wrote on my website, Uranus-Pluto Krakatoa-Type Event has already occurred.

Mj:  Ooh…

William:  It has already begun.  It’s a massive black swan event.

Mj:  Okay.

William:  And it has to do with the fact that the Russian ruble, the derivative positions, and the Russian ruble have been compromised to the point where when those contracts come due, there will not be enough money in the world to cover them.

Mj:  Got ya.

William:  And so therefore, the sheer speed and scale of the collapse of the ruble has nothing to do with what happened in 1998.  Because the eighth largest economy on the entire planet is in a state of turmoil right now, and what we are going to see is a major upheaval in the derivatives market and that is going to affect everybody.

Mj:  I mean, it’s terrifying but I have to say, with my astrologer head on, I find it absolutely fascinating.

William:  Yes.  So like I said, and I’ll read the conclusion verbatim for the folks here.  “What is occurring now in Russia that happened on December 15th [2014] during the penultimate Uranus-Pluto alignment will have terrible repercussions through all of Europe.  The implications between now and the final Uranus-Pluto square that will occur in March 2015 is extremely hostile and volatile to the global economic climate, and it will not be confined within Russia’s borders.”

Mj:  Not at all.

William:  “This is just a prelude to the great unraveling as exchange rate volatility continues to increase, leading the way to systemic debt contagion.”  So remember, back in the ’20s and early ’30s, Europe went into a depression first, then it hit North America.  We are seeing the same thing go in play again.  And remember — when you have financial wars, lead to trade wars, lead to shooting wars.

Mj:  Yep.  Absolutely.  And certainly that is what history teaches us.  Okay, so, here’s the $5 question.  Given that we’re about to get a storm where we’re going to be floating around on a stormy sea in a tea cup holding on with both hands, what is your advice to the average Joe for the year ahead?  What shouldn’t they do, what should they do?

William:  Well, I think political activism, social activism.  I think you need to get really involved.  I think they’ve got to stop expecting the elected officials to —  they have to stop buying into what they’ve been told.  I don’t have all the quick and dirty answers for this —

Mj:  No, no, I’m not expecting.  I mean, it would be great but we couldn’t possibly pay you enough an hour if you had the quick and dirty answer (laughs) to this one.  (laughs)

William:  Let’s just say that, what I really believe needs to be done [to address the crisis], needs to be much more radical in the sense that, compared to what people are doing now.  Just posting something on Facebook and ranting about is not enough.

Mj:  Yeah.

William:  You know, part of the reason I’m doing this radio show is to get the message out there that life is going to change for many people, and if you think that voting for the other party come election time in November 2016 or whenever they vote in Canada is going to be the solution, that is NOT the solution.  What we need is a complete change in the system and we need to become very active in that process of change, starting now. We need to voice our positions.  And what this comes down to this, and that is we no longer have a representative government.

Mj:  We have not had a representative government, certainly at our end, for a long time.

William:  Right.  And so I believe what ordinary people need to do is completely drop the expectation that “if I vote for the other [establishment] party I never voted for this time around, things will change.” Sorry but that is not going to change anything.

Mj:  Yeah, wasn’t it Einstein, or it’s often ascribed to Einstein, that “a problem that’s created at one level of thinking cannot be solved by that level of thinking,” you have to get up to a higher octave.

William:  Correct.  So I believe the revolution starts [right in your own] home  It starts in local communities.  It starts with getting organized and discussing these things and not trying to immediately come up with solutions but recognizing what’s really going on.  A lot of folks out there, including the astrologers, need to start doing this. And you know this, Mj, we don’t see any of this happening.  Most are just clueless.  Many astrologers are not even talking about it.

Mj: (sigh) Well, yeah, but the thing is, William, you’re asking them to re-learn.  The problem is that I can feel it, I can see it.  I mean, I’m all about the data, same as you, and the paradigm is shifting, which means that the astrological indicators are shifting which means we got to get up off our ass and crunch the data and figure out what it means this week, not what it meant in 1922.  And there are a lot people who are very comfortable because they learned it in 1922 and they really don’t want to learn it again.

William:  Well, this is what I have to say to folks listening, especially those astrologers out there is this: Soon, much sooner than you think, you will know what I know.

Mj:  But not by the indications that they’re used to using.  That’s what I’m noticing is that if you don’t treat astrology as the science it is, and if you keep relying on old data, pretty soon you’re going to look like a Proper Wally because you’re going to be saying stuff that isn’t true and you’re going to be missing critical stuff that people need to know.

William:  Right.  So what I say to the folks out there and to the astrologers is that your world view [as you have known it] ended a long time ago.

Mj:  Mm.

William:  It ended back in 2000, 2001.  Okay.  And your world view is not sufficient to come to the solutions and recognitions of the issues at hand.  This has nothing to do with intelligence [but about consciousness].  And all this is going to happen soon is an event will take place — it’s already begun —

Mj:  Yeah.

William:  Well to many that will shift and shatter your present world view.  And there are many other people out there who are catching on.  One of the things I’m going to say right now is the Prepper Movement is going to go mainstream, worldwide.  There is about 10 million people prepping for some event or they’re buying bitcoin or gold or silver, they’re getting a 3-month food supply in the house, and being self-sufficient, doing whatever they need to do to survive some type of major dislocation.

Mj:  Yep.

William:  That number is going to grow to, like, 50%.  I believe it’s going to grow upward to 50%.

Mj:  Yeah, I’m really noticing that here.  We’ve got something called Halifax Garden Swap.  It is the most radical thing you can do, right, is grow your own food.  Because that sticks it to Monsanto like nothing else will.

William:  Right.  So again, I just have to say this, to those skeptical folks out there, who think “steady as she goes,” or “it’s just going to be more of the same but only worse”, you will soon know what I know.

Mj:  It won’t be so crazy in a couple of years.

William:  Maybe sooner than that.

Mj:  Sooner than that!  You reckon this year, eh?

William:  Yes.  I believe this event has already begun and I believe you will see the fallout go worldwide, and then from Wall Street to Main Street much sooner than anybody thinks.

Mj:  Alrighty.  Well, I’m going to hang onto my hat all the way over here in Halifax and hope we don’t get a tsunami.  (laughs) Listen, it’s been absolutely amazing having you on.  I’m very grateful for your time, and I might be rattling your chain over the next few months as things kick off, maybe bring you back on and give us — you could be our rudder, you could give us a little bit of guidance, eh?

William:  Yes, absolutely.  We’ll focus more on that in the next discussion.  I just wanted to make my statements that 2015 is going to be the year where everyone is going to start getting it.

Mj:  Well, I’m excited and I appreciate the tips for the mundane astrologers out there, too — or maybe the bouncing baby mundanes like me — because it is too much to eat whole.  It’s too huge; you have to take little nibbles.  So I’m going to go and follow your advice and definitely going to check out your page.  And I’ll make sure there are links from my page to yours so people can find you.

William:  Thank you very much for having me, Mj, and I hope your audience appreciates the type of show you provide because there are very few shows out there that cover the scope or gamut of things that are going on in astrology like yours does.

Mj:  Well, it’s fun, you know.  And it allows me to talk to cool folks like your good self, right?  So, (laughs) I look forward to speaking with you soon and thank you so much for joining us here on The Astrology Show.

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.

Chichen_Itza_3

The Mayan Long Count End Date (13.0.0.0.0 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.

184989_1625904972244_1375131980_31464308_770168_n

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:

tzolk

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.

maya-map3

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).

Chilam_Balam_Ixil

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.

Quetzalcoatl_Ehecatl

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.

Day_14_Occupy_Wall_Street_September_30_2011_Shankbone_49

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 Date13.0.0.0.0 - World of the Fifth Sun
Mayan Long Count End Date13.0.0.0.0 – 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.

telepathy500a

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.

mundane-astro

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.

Pluto-Uranus_SevenExactSquares_2012-2015

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.

uranusplutosofar

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.

Below is a listing of the Uranus-Pluto major alignments, the starting and ending dates, accompanied with the most significant historical events during the 220-year period following the discovery of Uranus in 1781.

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.

BCIURMC

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.

2012-alignment-prophecies-o-300x169

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.

350px-ParadigmShiftsFrr15Events

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.

Federal Reserve Forecast 2009-2011: The Coming Collapse of the Federal Reserve

It is obvious that the Federal Reserve (the Fed) is largely to blame for the current debt bubble by manipulating the price and supply of money and infusing large amounts of liquidity into the free market while keeping interest rates much too low, for much too long. According to economist Barry Eichengreen of the University of California at Berkeley and Kevin O’Rourke of Trinity College, of Dublin, the current global recession began in April 2008. Below is a black box graph (the Millennium black box module from AIR software allows one to plot weights for aspect for any time span using any type of predictive technique) indicates the dates and the effect of each planetary transit to the natal chart of the Federal Reserve.

Based on results of the Blackbox Module graph, it is obvious that the Fed is completely blind to the catastrophe heading its way. The National Debt now exceeds $12.2 trillion. The fiscal 2009 Federal budget will have a deficit of more than $2 trillion and incoming revenue will make up less than half of that. Although Treasury Secretary Geithner claims the deficit will be reduced, the Obama administration has stated that a $1 trillion annual budget deficit is to be expected for the foreseeable future. Currently the U.S. Treasury has insufficient capital to fund the deficit beyond revenues of $2 trillion that it has to raise by the end of the fiscal year (09/30/2009)!

As the Fed continues to monetize (create money out of thin air!) trillions of dollars:

  • 77 bank failures nationwide have occurred, since the start of the recession in 2008.
  • Tax receipts are on pace to drop 18 percent this year, the biggest single-year decline since the Great Depression! (The last time the government’s revenues were this severely deficient was 1932.)
  • The U.S. government is running a 13% fiscal deficit-to-GDP ratio.
  • A wave of municipal defaults is in progress as many cities and states are on the verge of bankruptcy. For example, California may go bankrupt, causing the municipal bond market to grind to a halt (municipal bonds have been seen as a very safe investment with less than 1% of municipal bonds defaulting since World War II), bringing public works and spending to a halt, causing a major drop in GDP.
  • The commercial real estate sector is collapsing due to widespread overcapacity of major retail chains, shopping malls, and strip malls, as the market to refinance trillions of dollars of debt obligations has practically closed, resulting in canceled expansion plans, increasing job layoffs, and declining tax revenue.
  • The Option Adjustable Rate Mortgage explosion is under way as home prices continue to drop and refinancing will not be sensible for banks and mortgage lending intuitions.

Yet, Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, seems to be confident that the Fed can land the recovery and prevent runaway inflation, by reducing the monetary base before it floods the economy. Will this be so?
