Precession of the Equinoxes
The winter solstice of 2012 or December 20, 2012 is the end of the Mayan Calendar. According to my understanding it is also the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. At that time the winter solstice will align with the plane of the Milky Way galaxy to which our solar system belongs. I believe this date is important for other reasons as well, having to do with the Pleiades and the Star Regales changing signs in the tropical zodiac due to the precession of the equinoxes.
To understand how this works it is first necessary to understand what precession of the equinoxes is and what causes it. First of all there are two zodiacs used in astrology. They are the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac. Both zodiacs are arranged along the ecliptic which is the plane in space defined by the Earths orbit around the Sun. The tropical zodiac which is primarily used in western astrology divides the ecliptic into 12 signs of 30 degrees each referenced to the equinoxes and solstices. The sidereal zodiac which is primarily used in eastern astrology is made up of actual constellations of stars that are arranged along the ecliptic. A little over 2000 years ago these two zodiacs perfectly lined up together and the signs of the same name occupied the same positions on the ecliptic. Since then they have been drifting apart due to precession of the equinoxes.
The Earth’s axis of spin moves through a conical ark in space like a toy top that wobbles around as the top slows down before it falls over on its side. The Earth’s axis of spin is currently pointed at Polaris or the North Star, but this is not the same North Star that existed thousands of years ago. This wobble motion of the axis of spin is called precession. One processional cycle of the Earths axis of spin lasts 25,920 years. The plane in space of the Earth’s equator is 90 degrees or perpendicular to the Earth’s axis of spin. As the Earth’s axis of spin shifts its direction in space due to precession the equator shifts its orientation in space as well. The equinoxes are defined by the line along which the plane of the Earth’s equator intersects the ecliptic or plane of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. The Sun as seen from earth moves along the ecliptic and crosses over the equator twice a year. This happens in the spring around March 20 as the Sun crosses from a position south of the equator to a position north of the equator. This is called the spring or vernal equinox and marks the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of fall in the southern hemisphere. This same position in space on the ecliptic is the beginning of the tropical zodiac defined as zero degrees of Aries. When the Sun as seen from Earth moves from a position north of the equator to a position south of the equator we have the fall or autumnal equinox which is the beginning of fall in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of spring in the southern hemisphere. This autumnal equinox position is the beginning of Libra in the tropical zodiac. At the equinoxes the days and nights are of equal length. When the sun as seen from earth reaches its highest position north of the equator each year about June 21st we have the summer solstice When there are the longest days and the shortest nights in the northern hemisphere and the shortest days and longest nights in the southern hemisphere. This position on the ecliptic is the beginning of Cancer in the tropical zodiac. When the Sun as seen from Earth reaches its furthest position south of the equator we have the winter solstice when the days are shortest and the nights longest in the northern hemisphere and the days longest and nights shortest in the southern hemisphere. This position on the ecliptic is the beginning of Capricorn in the tropical zodiac.
The tropical zodiac is by definition referenced to the equinoxes and solstices, but what about the sidereal zodiac. How do we determine a beginning and ending point for the sidereal zodiac? Because of precession the equinoxes and solstices move backwards against the constellations of the sidereal zodiac at the rate of one degree every 72 years, 30 degrees or one complete zodiacal age every 2160 years, and 360 degrees or a complete cycle every 25,920 years. It is this phenomenon that causes zodiacal ages such as the Piscean age we are leaving or the Aquarian age we are entering. To know when these transitions occur or when one age ends and the next one begins it is necessary to have a reference frame for the sidereal zodiac. The currently used reference frames for sidereal zodiac do not all agree with each other.
The sidereal zodiac reference frame that makes sense to me are related to the Pleiades a cluster of stars located in the constellation of Taurus and the star Regales in the constellation of Leo. This is because both the Pleiades and Regales are aligned almost perfectly with the plane of the ecliptic and also have a near perfect 90 degree or square angle to each other. In fact Alcyone the central star of the Pleiades cluster and Regales are only 10 minutes of a degree (1/6 of a degree) from having a perfect square or 90 degree angle to each other. Both are highly significant in the mythologies and astrological lore of many ancient cultures. In fact some Native American tribes say their ancestors came from the Pleiades .Due to precession in the year 2000 Alcyone moved from tropical Taurus to tropical Gemini and Regales will move from tropical Leo to tropical Virgo exactly in the year 2012. As this happens the vernal equinox moves from the first degree of sidereal Pisces to the last degree of sidereal Aquarius thus beginning the Aquarian age.
It is worthwhile to look at the symbolism of the sphinx which to me represents the Leo Virgo cusp, in as much as the sphinx has the body of a lion and the head of a woman. When Regales (also called Core Leones or the lions heart) crosses this cusp in the tropical zodiac due to precession we have the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. This is a momentous time in which ancient mysteries are revealed. It is significant that only 3 and 1/2 signs of the zodiac incorporate the human form in their pictorial symbolism. They are Gemini the twins, Virgo the Virgin, Aquarius the water bearer, and Sagittarius which is half horse and half human. As the Pleiades shift from Taurus, a bestial sign to Gemini a human sign and Regales shifts from Leo a bestial sign to Virgo a human sign we enter The Age of Aquarius a human sign where humanity has the opportunity to reach its full potential. During this time period at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century new discoveries are being made on the Giza plateau in around and under the sphinx and the Great pyramid using sonar radar mechanical robots and other high tech devices to detect and uncover hidden chambers. Startling discoveries are being made much of which are being withheld from public knowledge.
Chapter 2: The Galactic Center
A major factor affecting the transition to the Aquarian Age is alignments to the Galactic Center. The Galactic Center is the central hub around which the Entire Milky Way Galaxy made up of billions of stars rotates. Our solar system is located in one of the outer spiral arms of the Milky Way Galaxy. Astronomers say that the Galactic Center is an enormously dense and massive object said to have approximately a mass of two hundred million times the mass of our sun. Because of its enormous mass and gravitational attraction astronomers say it is a black hole with a gravitational field so powerful that not even light can escape it. In my estimation a black hole such as the galactic Center is a place where physical matter is recycled back to a spiritual dimension. In my understanding this occurs through standing wave nodes which are also tiny sub atomic particles which are shared by vibrations moving at the speed of light and also vibrations moving at higher multiples or harmonics of the speed of light. When the potential energy of these sub atomic particles or nodes disperses as the kinetic energy of moving waves, the energy can be transferred from vibrations moving at the speed of light on the physical level of manifestation to vibrations moving at higher multiples of the speed of light which make up subtler spiritual dimensions of manifestation. This is the only way the energy can escape the intense gravitational field of a black hole because the gravitational field has less effect on light moving at higher multiples of the speed of light. What is a black hole to the physical level of manifestation is a quasar of stupendous brilliance to a parallel spiritual level of manifestation.
The Galactic Center has immense importance and influence in astrology which deals with the multidimensional influence of cosmic energies on human beings and life on earth in general. The Galactic Center is far away (approximately 40,000 light years) from our solar system. Its immense size and power more than makes up for its distance in influencing life on planet Earth. As of 2008 the Galactic Center is at 26 degrees and 58 minutes of Sagittarius in the tropical zodiac or almost 27 degrees.
When as seen from Earth planets in our solar system make alignments with the Galactic Center powerful cosmic energies influence our planet and human consciousness. These energies have a major destabilizing effect on life as we have known it but also have the potential to open up higher states of consciousness and vastly accelerate our evolution. Several important alignments have already happened over the last few years but the most important ones are still to occur over the next few years.
During 1982 and 1983 Neptune was conjunct the Galactic Center. Neptune deals with the subconscious mind, dreams, and psychic awareness. On a mass level Neptune has to do with the collective subconscious and how this is expressed through belief systems, music, entertainment, styles and cultural attitudes. This was the culmination of the Neptune in Sagittarius era during which there was much exchange of cultural and spiritual traditions of various parts of the world and the guru phenomena was in full swing in the US where spiritual teachers from India and other parts of the world created followings .Increased travel, Communication satellites, and availability of higher education for a greater segment of the population were making global information and cultural exchange more pervasive and wide spread. The so called new age movement got underway as people sought to find their own internal intuitive connection with God and be less dependent on the external religious dogmas they were familiar with. In many cases a familiar spiritual belief system was exchanged for a more exotic one that still had many of the same underlying limitations and hang ups. This was none the less a time of increased blending of cultural, artistic and spiritual traditions from every part of the world.
In late February, March, April, and May of 1987 as well as December, 1987 and January 1988 and July through October 1988 Uranus was conjunct the Galactic Center. During January and February 1988 and July through October 1988 Saturn was lined up with Uranus on the Galactic Center. I987 was also the beginning of the nanosecond a brief 25 year time period from 1987 to December 22, 2012 referred to by the Pleadian’s who are extraterrestrial beings channeled by Barbara Marciniak. These beings describe the nanosecond as being a brief period of time which culminates and begins many cosmic time cycles during which a maximum number of time lines from the past and the future intersect. What happens and is decided by humanity during the nanosecond will determine the future destiny of humanity, the Earth, and even the cosmos for a long time to come. It is a critical time in which an enormous evolutionary break through into enlightenment and empowerment or a disastrous fall into degradation and tyranny could occur. The steaks have never been higher. 1987 and 1988 brought the first stage of the dawning of cosmic awareness for mankind and the beginning of global civilization as brought on by global electronic communications and modern technology. Saturn structures and imposes limitations while Uranus causes sudden change and liberates. This was the starting line in a race between those who would seek to regiment and control mass psychology and those who would seek to liberate mass consciousness. The Galactic Center to which all of the line ups are occurring is in Sagittarius, and Sagittarius is the sign associated with history, religion, philosophy, higher education, law, and cultural traditions in general. In short Sagittarius deals with mass belief systems and cultural standards. What the masses believe about their history, and the social, moral, religious and legal standards they are conditioned with has everything to do with the kind of economic, educational, religious, and political leadership and institutions they will accept. The real battle has been and is over mass psychology and belief systems. Mass consciousness is the decisive factor in whether the human race is headed towards liberation and empowerment or tyranny and enslavement. The forces of darkness have always done everything they can to lie about history and limit and enslave the human psyche, through such things as external religious dogma, unjust legal systems, controlled media, trauma based mind control, and orchestrated crisis situations. Those who seek human liberation must do everything they can to reveal the truth, expose lies, teach reliance on inner spiritual guidance, and encourage people to think for themselves, question authority, take control of their own lives, and refuse to be manipulated through fear and intimidation.
Much of this has to do with teaching and promoting local self reliance in the essentials of survival such as energy (solar energy, hydrogen fuel, etc), food (green houses community gardens etc), transportation (converting internal combustion engines to run on hydrogen), communications (short wave radio and wireless networks), and local manufacturing facilities such as community machine shops, woodworking shops, electronics labs, vehicle repair garages, foundries etc. In the event of global economic meltdown or natural catastrophe such a system of local self reliance in the essentials of civilization has a better chance of survival and continued progress. On the political level it enables independence from centralized political and corporate enslavement. In the event of major economic breakdown such communities could develop their own local currencies, barter exchange and work trade systems. The best way to defeat the system is to make it irrelevant. When society as we know it breaks down people will have to re create sustainability on a local community level. Because the current economic order is so globalized it is also is very fragile when something major goes wrong in the affairs of man and nature. Competitive capitalist reductionism of do it the most exploitative, cheapest, dirtiest way possible, or else you’re competition will has made modern civilization very vulnerable.
In nature things are organized and function in a modular fractal holographic way. For example the DNA in every cell of our bodies contains the entire blue print for the entire body. Likewise the fabric of civilization should be organized in such a way that every local community has the capability of self sustainability in all the essentials of life and the ability to reestablish healthy social structure progress and commerce in surrounding areas that may have been disrupted.
In April, May, And June of 2001 there were a number of very significant line ups with the Galactic Center involving Chiron, Mars, Mercury, Sun, Moon, and Jupiter. This was the time period leading up to the World Trade Center disaster or 9-11 during which these events were most likely planned and orchestrated. From mid April to mid June Mars was stationary conjunct the Galactic Center and Mercury was stationary opposition Mars and the Galactic Center from late May through Mid June. From June 16 to June 20 2001 The Sun opposed the Galactic Center leading into a solar eclipse on the summer solstice. In late June and early July Jupiter opposed the Galactic Center. After going direct Mercury again opposed the Galactic Center from July 8 through July 12 followed by Venus from July 28 through July 31. Chiron was conjunct the Galactic Center from early February 2001 to mid June 2001 and again from late August 2001 through November 2001. This intense combination of transits to the Galactic Center marked the an increasing polarization or divide between those segments of the population who were increasingly aware of the distortions, lies, and misrepresentations presented to them by government and corporate media and those segments of the population who chose to be in denial of what was really going on.
For those willing to look outside the box of the controlled corporate major media many glaring inconsistencies in the official story of 9-11 has since become evident including many issues involving physical evidence. It has become apparent that the government is lying and those in positions of power have something to hide. It could well be that 9-11 was staged or allowed to happen to create the excuse for police state, war, huge military appropriations and centralization of power. As always the question should be: who profits? There are important historical parallels. One is what occurred in Germany in the 1930s when Hitler’s henchmen burned down the German parliament building called the Reich stat, blamed it on communists, screamed for law and order and used it as a means to take over power. They created the problem to begin with and then offered a solution that served their agenda. History is full of such instances.
From August through December 2002 and from late April through May 2003 Saturn in late Gemini opposed the galactic center. Saturn typically has to do with established institutions, business, and government. This was a period of economic downturn corporate scandals (notably Enron and WorldCom) and increasing duplicity on the part of big business and government in hiding the truth pretending to be above the law, and avoiding accountability to the people. Those segments of the population who chose not to be in denial were increasingly aware that they were being lied to and being treated to in a high handed manner by the people and institutions that control economic and political power. This was also the time period leading up to the invasion of Iraq in which the Bush administration flaunted world opinion.
During mid May of 2004 Venus was Stationary at 26 degrees of Gemini and opposition the Galactic center. This was followed by the Venus occultation of the Sun on June 8 of 2004. Venus was in Gemini from April 4 to August 7, 2004 because of retrograde motion. This period of time has been an opportunity for humanity to tune into spiritual energies of a more refined nature and gain a better mental as well as emotional understanding of how to create peace. It fosters a greater discernment in the ability to recognize truth and see through falsehoods. This energy also encourages a more intelligent understanding of sexuality and how to express it in constructive way. It has also brought a greater understanding and respect for the role of the feminine goddess energy and helped women to come into their power and express themselves more fully.
During all of 2006 and 2007 Pluto Conjuncts the Galactic Center within 2 degrees of orb. This conjunction is most exact during March and April 2006, December 2006 And Early January 2007, and late June through Early November 2007. During this general period of time Mars is conjunct Pluto and the Galactic Center from January 10 through 14 2007. Mars is opposition Pluto and the Galactic Center from April 6 to April 11 2006, September 17 to September 27 2007, and while stationary turning direct during January and February 2008. Mars squares Pluto and the Galactic Center from August 28 to September 6 2006 and March 7 to March 13 2007.
These Mars aspects to Pluto and the Galactic Center have the potential to trigger violent events such as revolutions, wars, battles, accidents, fires, terrorist acts, assassinations, nuclear accidents, and natural disasters. This is especially true of the prolonged opposition of stationary Mars in Gemini in January and February of 2008. Pluto enters Capricorn for the first time on January 26 2008 during this time period marking a major shift in the energy. This could be the beginning of overt attempts at totalitarian world wide police state accompanied by violent resistance on the part of the general populace. A major power struggle could reach a critical stage in early 2008.
In the Mayan calendar this period falls in the 5th night of the Galactic creation cycle between November 18 2007 and November 12 2008 which will probably coincide with the last attempt of the dark forces to enslave humanity and take over planet earth. The 5th night is generally associated with the time period of the greatest physical hardship suffering and violence. In previous cycles this period has coincided with the fall of Rome and World War 2.
On the positive side Transits of Mars to Pluto and The Galactic center can be a time when decisive action is taken to initiate positive reforms and programs to improve the human condition, clean up the environment, provide clean renewable energy alternatives, and eliminate corruption and abuse of power.
Venus is conjunct Pluto and the Galactic Center from December 7 through 10 2007 and from January 20 through 24 2008. Venus is opposition Pluto and the Galactic center from July 13 to July 17 2006 and May 3 to May 7 2007. Jupiter is conjunct Pluto and the Galactic Center from November 25 2007 to December 19 2007. Mercury is conjunct Pluto and the Galactic Center from December 24 through 27 2006 and December 17 through 20 2007. Mercury is opposition Pluto and the Galactic Center from may 31 to June 2 2006 and June 24 to June 27 2007. The Sun is conjunct Pluto and the Galactic Center from December 17 through 20 2006 and December 17 through 20 2007.
From July through October 2006 the Moon’s nodes will Square Pluto and the Galactic Center. This will have a major impact on mass consciousness, by disrupting established belief systems and causing vast numbers of people to question what they assumed was true because of shocking events and revelations.
When faster moving planets aspect the conjunction of Pluto and the Galactic Center such as enumerated above, the influence of the long term Pluto-Galactic Center conjunction is intensified and specific events are triggered.
Pluto conjunct the Galactic Center has enormous significance and will make 2006 and 2007 a major turning point in history. Pluto is associated with death and rebirth. It has to do with fundamental transformation where what comes out of the process is fundamentally and irrevocably different than what went into it. The transformation goes down to the atomic and sub atomic level, to the very core essence. Whatever Pluto touches can never be the same. The Galactic Center has to do with our relationship to the larger Universe as it is the hub of the Entire galaxy in which our Sun is only one among billions of stars.
This transit represents humanities initiation into the larger galactic reality. This could take the form of universal public recognition and official Government acknowledgement of the reality of visitation by extraterrestrial beings and their space ships throughout human history. The so called UFO and ET phenomena will become a generally accepted fact after decades of official denial. Not only are we not alone, we have never been alone. In fact there is much evidence that we were genetically engineered as a species by extraterrestrial beings to begin with. There is a vast body of suppressed evidence of extraterrestrial visitation in every part of the world in every period of history. Just as in Galileo’s time the recognition that the Earth is not the center of the universe brought a major intellectual revolution, likewise on a vastly larger scale the recognition that man is not the only or most advanced intelligent species will bring an enormous change in humanities perception of itself and our place in the universe. The impact will be so huge as to irrevocably change human history forever. Sagittarius has to do with contact with distant parts of the world and foreign cultures and Pluto conjunct the Galactic Center in Sagittarius indicates contact with other cultures and intelligent beings in the ultimate cosmic sense.
Pluto conjunct the Galactic Center also indicates the crisis of birthing an integrated global culture. The necessity to deal with global economic industrial, ecological, military and demographic crisis situations will necessitate a more global consciousness and the collective will to deal with world problems that threaten global human survival. Only a united humanity can adequately relate to the galactic community of intelligent species.
2006 and 2007 will be the time in which world wide industrial, ecological, economic, geological, and military situations will undeniably and irreversibly get out of control. Nature will serve notice that it can no longer be business as usual and that only a total change in the total way the world is run can guarantee the future survival of human civilization on planet earth.
The looming crisis of 2006 and 2007 could take the form of Earth changes, Out of control ecological disasters, economic melt down, nuclear accidents, terrorist acts with weapons of mass destruction (whether covertly state sponsored or not) wars, famines, extreme abnormal weather, mass epidemics or any combination of these. The world will enter a period of evolutionary free fall in which existing governmental, economic, industrial, military, or religious institutions will be totally unable to cope with the global changes that are taking place. Whatever form it takes it will be on such a mega scale as to be a threat to the entire world and will threaten everyone’s security regardless of their country, class, status or wealth. It will no longer be possible for anyone to be complacent regardless of their wealth or status. In reality there was never room for complacency but by 2006 and 2007 it will be so glaringly obvious that no one can ignore it however much they might want to. This chaos will accelerate and reach a point of peak intensity by 2012. This chaos will create the unpreconditioned space out of which a new civilization can emerge
On the positive side Pluto’s conjunction to The Galactic Center will mean such a huge intensification of cosmic spiritual energy on the planet as to make possible enormous spiritual break troughs, enlightenment experiences, and expansions of consciousness for people who are engaged in a valid spiritual path (actively seeking higher consciousness).
When this spiritual awakening reaches a sufficient critical mass it will trigger a spiritual breakthrough in the mass consciousness which will change everything. Evolution along this line will not be promoted or publicized in the controlled mass media but it is happening and will continue to happen at an ever accelerating rate. The sustained conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus on the Pisces Aries cusp from May 2010 through January 2011 could be a critical breakthrough point in this process.
According to the Pleadian teachings channeled through Barbara Marciniak the 2006 2007 conjunction of Pluto and the Galactic Center is a critical point in the 25 year nanosecond when the cosmic energies affecting planet Earth vastly increase in intensity precipitating an unprecedented global crisis. The Pleadians say that at that point boot camp is over. When the 25 year nanosecond which began in1987 is divided into 12 segments of 2 years one month each, the fall equinox of 2006 is the beginning of the Capricorn 10th house phase, which is likely to bring a huge political crisis during which something very decisive can happen. Whether this means progress towards freedom or regression into tyranny depends on how much awakening of the mass consciousness has taken place especially during the Sagittarius 9th house phase of the nanosecond which begins late August of 2004.
It is important to understand that the flow of events during the nanosecond is a very non linear process. The further into the nanosecond we get the more the energy intensifies and the faster events occur to bring about stupendous global crisis and change. As the nanosecond precedes the intensity of energy, increase in consciousness, and acceleration of events builds exponentially each year reaching peak intensity on December22 2012.
Between 2007 and 2012 there are some very important planetary configurations involving the Galactic Center, even though they are not aspects of conjunction or opposition to the Galactic Center. The T square is considered to be a configuration of major importance in astrology. It occurs when two planets are 180 degrees apart with a third planet or point of significance 90 degrees to both of them. This is a configuration of great dynamic tension. The planet or body that makes a 90 degree angle (called a square in astrology) to the two planets that are 180 degrees apart is said to be in point focus. In late April and during May And early June of 2010 Saturn in late degrees of Virgo and Uranus in late degrees of Pisces are in opposition (the 180 degree aspect with both in square to the Galactic Center which is in point focus. In middle and late May Jupiter is conjunct Uranus becoming a major contributor to this configuration. This configuration will have a major effect in intensifying mass awareness of the true nature of the economic political and social and spiritual crisis that faces the world.
Saturn in Virgo squares the Galactic Center from September 17 2009 to October 20 2009 and from April 22 2010 to July 6 2010, using a 2 degree orb. This could mean a crisis in global labor practices, unemployment, and increased dysfunction of world political and economic systems.
Jupiter in Pisces squares the Galactic Center from May 7 2010 to May 30 2010 and from September 16 2010 to January 16 2011. I have allowed up to 2 and ½ degree orb for this aspect from mid October to mid December because Jupiter is Conjunct Uranus and is also stationary turning direct in mid November 2010. This will bring the inadequacies of limited, narrow, and outmoded cultural and religious belief systems sharply into focus.
Uranus in Pisces squares the Galactic Center from April 27 2009 to September 25 2009, from February 17 2010 to May 2 2010, and from september16 2010 to February 21 2011 (using a 2 degree orb). The survival necessity to reorder global priorities will bring about revolutionary changes on a massive scale at unprecedented speed. The entire world will seem hopelessly out of control. The conjunction of Jupiter to Uranus lasts from May 2010 through January 2011. Much of the duration of this aspect takes place around 26 and 27 degrees of Pisces and squares the Galactic center at 27 degrees of Sagittarius. This takes place from late September 2010 until February 2011.
The Jupiter Uranus conjunction takes place on the Pisces Aries cusp and has the potential to bring about a global mass spiritual awakening that will transcend all cultural and national barriers. Part of the Jupiter Uranus conjunction occurs in the last degrees of Pisces and part in the first degrees of Aires thus bridging the old dispensation into a new beginning. From May 28 through September 9 2010 Jupiter, Uranus or both are in the beginning of Aires. From June through August 2010 Saturn is in Late Virgo and Early Libra opposing this conjunction indicating an intense power struggle with the old corrupt economic, legal and political power structure. This could be particularly nasty between July 27 and august 7 when Mars is conjunct Saturn and in opposition to Jupiter and Uranus. This could mean confrontations with the police and the military in the struggle for freedom. The opposition of Saturn to Jupiter and Uranus also forms a T-square to Pluto in Capricorn during this time period indicating a power struggle of major intensity. Pluto in Capricorn has the potential to be extremely totalitarian wile Uranus in Aires can be extremely radical in the pursuit of freedom. This is the beginning of a long term square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn from 2010 through 2015, peaking in 2012 indicating the final major power struggle in the birthing of the Aquarian age.

Chapter 3: The Sun spot cycle
A major factor of profound influence on the transition to the Age of Aquarius is sunspot and solar storm activity on the Sun. There is the well known 11 year Sun spot cycle in which the sun has a maximum of Sun spot and solar flair activity every 11 years. The normal Sun spot cycle was supposed to have peaked in the year 2000. However something unusual has been going on. As of August 2004 Sun spots, solar flares and coronal mass ejections have not slowed down at all and if any thing there is more violent solar activity now than in 2000. Scientists say that the Sun is more violently active now than at any time in known scientific history.
According to evidence from fossilized tree rings and magnetic domains in core samples drilled from the ocean floor there seems to be a much longer cycle at work in which the Sun periodically reverses its magnetic poles and causes the planets of the solar system to reverse their magnetic poles. It is a known fact that over the last 100 years the Earth’s magnetic field has been getting progressively weaker. It is expected that at some time in the near future the Earth’s magnetic field will go to zero and then reverse. According to geological evidence when the Earth’s magnetic field becomes weak, earthquakes and volcanic activity increase. Most of the volcanic activity takes place under the oceans causing the oceans to become warmer resulting in greater evaporation into the atmosphere. When moisture in the atmosphere reaches a critical level catastrophic snow falls occur at extreme northern and southern latitudes beginning a new ice age after a period of global warming. There is an 11500 year cycle that correlates with the beginning of Ice ages. When this happens there is abnormally violent activity on the Sun. Recent solar flairs in the fall of 2003 and summer of 2004 have been so severe as to be literally off the charts.
When solar flairs and coronal mass ejections happen streams of charged particles are spewed out into the solar system at tremendous velocities. This phenomenon is called the solar wind. When violent events occur on the Sun the solar wind plays havoc with the Earth’s magnetic field often resulting in extreme weather, seismic activity and volcanic eruptions. Solar storms also affect mass psychology resulting in more extreme forms of human behavior. There has been a correlation between periods of extreme solar activity and major wars. Such massive solar disturbances can and does change the very biological structure of all life on Earth.
The next 11 year Sun spot cycle is due to peak in 2012, the year in which the Mayan calendar ends. This combined with the theorized long range solar cycle due to end in 2012 could push the geomagnetic instability of Earth over the edge. This would result in reversing the Earths magnetic poles, massive earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity, possibly resulting in cataclysmic geological changes.
Whether or not such cataclysmic earth changes occur, the impact on mass consciousness will be beyond huge and life will never be the same afterwards.
Heliocentric astrology has been successfully used to predict Sun spots and solar flares. The pioneer of this predictive method was a Man by the name of John Nelson. Nelson considered himself to be a hard nosed practical engineer who did not give credence to superstitions such as Astrology. He worked for RCA Corporation as a radio engineer. In the 1950s before modern computers and communication satellites a lot of long distance communication was conducted through short wave radio. Short wave radio communication depends on bouncing short wave radio signals back and forth between the surface of the Earth and charged particles in the upper atmosphere called the ionosphere. The conditions of the ionosphere are constantly changing and are particularly susceptible to changes in the Earth’s magnetic field and charged particles in the solar wind as they bombard the Earth’s upper atmosphere. When major solar disturbances happen the ionosphere is severely affected. When this happens, short wave radio communications are disrupted requiring changes in broadcast frequencies and sometimes shutting down long range radio communication all together. Because of this problem Nelson was given the job of finding a way to predict severe solar disturbances. He tried various methods without much success until he discovered a method that did work with a high percentage of accuracy. His successful predictive method consisted of plotting the angular relationships of the planets as seen from the Sun. When certain types of angles and configurations of angles formed between the planets of the solar system a seen from the Sun take place violent activity on the Sun would occur.
Nelson found that when planets formed angles of 0, 45, 90, 135, and 180 degrees or configurations of several planets forming these angles violent solar disturbances would occur. The more exact the angles were and the greater the number of planets forming them the more severe the solar disturbance would be. These angles of 0, 45, 90, 135, and 180 degrees are the same as the so called “hard angle” aspects used in astrology. Astrologers consider these hard angle aspects to be stressful and challenging because they usually precipitate crisis situations in the lives of people who experience them. According to Nelsons research it could logically be expected that the most violent solar weather would happen when major configurations of heliocentric hard angle aspects between planets coincided with Sun spot maxima periods according to the 11 year cycle and perhaps much longer solar cycles. Nelson also found that the size and distance of the planets were not a significant factor and that even small and far away Pluto had a very significant effect. His predictions lost 15% accuracy when Pluto was not taken into account. Naturally as seen from the Sun the Earth had an important influence along with the other planets. By contrast Nelson discovered that angles between the planets as seen from the Sun of 60 and 120 degrees the so called favorable aspects in astrology coincided with more stable, peaceful solar conditions. Nelson used a heliocentric system of prediction because he was dealing with a phenomena occurring on the Sun which indirectly affects the Earth, via the solar wind. Astrology as usually practiced uses a geocentric system because even though the Earth is not the center of the universe from the perspective of someone living on Earth cosmic energies are experienced from an Earth based vantage point. Heliocentric astrology can also be used in individual interpretation because it conditions the solar energy which influences everything on Earth and throughout the Solar System.
Chapter 4: Transits of Outer Planets through the Signs
Transits of the outer more slow moving planets of the solar system through the signs of the zodiac demarcate cycles of evolutionary development when certain themes are emphasized according to the combined astrological significance of the planets and signs involved. In the case of Neptune and Pluto these transits through a sign last 15 years for Neptune and from 14 to 32 years for Pluto, influencing the values and experiences of whole generations. For instance Neptune was in Virgo during the 1930s, the time of the great depression. Virgo rules labor and the 1930s were a time of massive unemployment. This preoccupied a whole generation of people with issues of financial security where material survival was of paramount importance.
Pluto in Leo from 1938 to 1957 ushered in an era of dictatorships with Hitler Mussolini, Stalin and Mau Satang. This was the time period during which nuclear weapons came into being and for the first time in known history humanity was in danger of causing its own extinction, giving rise to a global collective insecurity never known before. Leo also rules entertainment, and Pluto in Leo brought a time of rock music and extreme entertainment motivated by the need for extreme protest, or else an underlying mood of eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.
A generation which grows up with Neptune or Pluto in a particular sign carries the values engendered by its experiences into its later adult years after these slow moving planets have moved into the next or succeeding signs. The influence of these slow moving transits can be seen in generational tastes in fashion, music, philosophy, political outlook, and preoccupation with certain types of social issues.
Uranus takes 7 years to transit a sign and it also demarcates periods of rapid change in regard to the issues associated with the sign it transits. For instance the recent transit of Uranus through Aquarius from 1995 to 2002 brought unprecedented development and deployment of electronic technology and gadgets with cell phones, computers, internet, fax machines etc.
Pluto in Sagittarius
Pluto entered Sagittarius on January 17 1995, reentered Scorpio by retrograde motion on April 21 1995 and went back into Sagittarius on November 11, 1995. Pluto leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn on January 27, 2008, retrogrades back into Sagittarius on June 14, 2008 and moves back into Capricorn on November 27, 2008. Sagittarius is the sign that rules cultural belief systems as expressed through religion, Law, philosophy, higher education, and the prevailing understanding of history. Pluto brings a very deep transformation to whatever He touches. Pluto transmits an energy which brings fundamental and irrevocable change. Plutonian energy penetrates to the innermost core of whatever it touches, and alchemically changes it so that whatever comes out of this process is fundamentally different than what went into it. This process brings death to whatever is dysfunctional and stands in the way of further evolutionary progress. The old must die in for something new to be born. This death rebirth process usually involves an intense power struggle.
Sagittarius relates to cultural traditions and values as expressed through law, philosophy, higher education, and especially religion. All of these are undergoing major challenges and transformations as Pluto in Sagittarius uncovers hidden abuse of power in religious and cultural institutions and reveals the true nature of our past history. Pluto in Sagittarius is shattering our most cherished cultural illusions and bringing public disfavor to the institutions that represent them.
This is particularly true of organized religion as people become increasingly aware that there is a vast difference between religion and spirituality. Spirituality comes from within. Religion is often a control dogma imposed from without. With Pluto in Sagittarius shocking revelations are coming to light concerning abuse of power and public trust in major religious institutions involving miss appropriation of funds and sexual abuse of children. There is a growing awareness that religion is often used to promote corrupt economic, political, and military agendas. This does not mean that there are not many sincere religious people and genuinely worthwhile religious programs and charities. Religion can be no better than the level of consciousness of those who espouse and promote it. Corrupt or false religion which is all too prevalent throughout history generally uses ignorance, superstition, guilt, and most especially fear as a means of brainwashing and controlling the populace.
Perhaps the most destructive force in human history is something I call vicarious egotism. People often feel weak, insignificant, disempowered, and vulnerable as individuals. To attempt to overcome this they often identify with some collective identity which can be a religion, nationality, race, political ideology, social class, profession or combination of these. This confers on them a sense of security, purpose, belonging, and all too often self righteous superiority. In the name of their group identity people often perpetrate heinous acts of violence, enslavement, theft, and injustice which they would never think of or dare perform as individuals. They somehow feel that because their religion, ideology, race, or nationality is superior it gives them the right to exploit, enslave, and make war on other people who are outside of their collective identity. History is full of charismatic and self serving leaders and power elites who exploit this natural human weakness to achieve their ends. This is usually how the game of divide and conquer is carried out.
Pluto in Sagittarius stimulates both enlightened and unenlightened human behavior. On the positive side Pluto in Sagittarius will bring genuine enlightenment and profound levels of insight and power to those who have the spiritual maturity to establish a deep connection with their own inner consciousness. Those who seek emotional security and ego identity through aligning themselves with external authorities and dogmas will fall prey to blind fanaticism and will be perverted and led astray. Pluto in Sagittarius intensifies dogmatic religious and ideological fanaticism at the same time it elevates those who are spiritually ready for exalted levels of awareness of the spiritual essence that permeates and animates all of existence.
Sagittarius is associated with long distance travel, foreign cultures, history, and spiritual traditions. Pluto in Sagittarius is greatly enhancing the global exchange of cultural and spiritual knowledge on a profound level. This can ultimately bring about a worldwide spiritual synthesis of the best elements of the cultural backgrounds from every part of the world. The far reaching nature of Sagittarian energy is also associated with international trade and commerce. This also has a sinister side with Pluto in Sagittarius where huge international corporate conglomerates dictate international economic policy based on centralized control of the few over the many. For instance we see this in the outsourcing of jobs in more developed countries through the exploitation of slave labor in third world countries. Pluto in Sagittarius has a second house (financial) relationship to his own sign of Scorpio. Pluto is associated with big power and big money. Economic globalization based only on the expediency of a privileged elite tramples on the ecology, human rights, public health, and the preservation of ancient cultural traditions, and historic sacred sites and artifacts. If this is allowed to go on unchallenged it can lead to centralized global dictatorship when Pluto is in Capricorn.
Pluto’s transit through Sagittarius is creating a vastly expanded awareness of our place in the cosmos. This can be seen in humanity’s beginnings in space exploration and the ever accelerating progress of astronomy in discovering ever greater cosmic vistas. The Hubble telescope and the recent discovery of planets orbiting other stars are good examples of this.
Of far greater importance to the evolution of human consciousness on planet Earth will be the general public recognition of visitation by extra terrestrial intelligent beings and their spaceships. E.T. visitation has gone on throughout the past millennia’s, however the general recognition of this will mark a stupendous turning point in human history after which life will never be the same. This shift is taking place with Pluto in Sagittarius. Pluto’s alignment with the Galactic center in 2006, 2007, and 2008 will be the pivotal point in bringing about mass awareness of the E.T. presence.
Pluto’s transit through Sagittarius indicates that the major historic power struggle is over whose agenda will dominate mass consciousness and belief systems. The established power structure is using the controlled mass media (particularly TV) and advertising to brainwash the public. At the same time independent thinkers and intuitively spiritually aware people are developing their own alternative media and ways of networking especially through the internet. Intensifying spiritual awareness due to increased cosmic energy is awakening intuitive faculties in mankind enabling more and more people to see through lies and deceit on all levels. When this awareness reaches a critical mass civilization will undergo a fundamental transformation.
Pluto in Capricorn
Pluto enters Capricorn for the first time on January 26 2008 and retrogrades back into Sagittarius on June 14 2008. Pluto reenters Capricorn on November 27 2008. Pluto leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on March 24 2023 and retrogrades back into Capricorn on June 11 2023. Pluto reenters Aquarius on January 21 2024.
Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign dealing with the practical administration of large political, business, corporate, governmental, military, and religious institutions and power structures. Sagittarius is concerned with the belief systems and cultural values of a society while Capricorn governs the practical administration and enforcement of these cultural standards. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and is the most conservative sign associated with the established power structures of a society. Capricorn and Saturn generally strive to perpetuate the status quo of whatever political, economic, military, industrial, and religious power structures are in control.
The established corrupt power structures of the world and the global elite that control them are likely to respond in a very repressive and reactionary way to ever increasing pressure for change and transformation with Pluto in Capricorn. The period starting in 2008 and extending up to 2012 is the most likely time frame when attempts will be made to create a global police state. Desperate leaders and their disintegrating power structures could attempt overt totalitarian take over and martial law. Starting in the summer of 2010 Uranus in Aries begins a square to Pluto in Capricorn indicating a world wide reaction against oppressive governmental, economic, and military control resulting in civil disobedience and revolution on a scale never seen before. This square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn starts in 2010 reaches peak intensity in 2012 and extends until 2015.
Ultimately Pluto in Capricorn will bring about the death and disintegration of governmental, economic and industrial power structures which stand in the way of evolutionary progress. Many heads of state will die and established regimes will be overthrown but not without an intense and often violent power struggle. Much of this struggle could involve issues of taxation, and tax revolt may turn out to be one of the most effective ways for the ordinary people of the world to fight back against repressive regimes. People will increasingly resort to such tactics as conducting business of off the books and exchanging goods and services through barter. Inevitably there will be much economic chaos as existing financial and industrial systems disintegrate under the pressure of out of control environmental, ecological, technological, industrial, climatic, and geological change. The forces of nature in the form of earth changes and extreme weather are likely to play a major role in this. Unprecedented disasters could bankrupt even major insurance companies.
Neptune in Aquarius
Neptune entered Aquarius on January 30 1998 and retrograded back into Capricorn on August 24 1998. Neptune reentered Aquarius on November 29 1998. Neptune leaves Aquarius and enters His own sign of Pisces on February 12 2012.
Aquarius is an air sign and air is the most subtle and all pervasive of the four elements. Aquarius is associated with electronic technology and as an air sign has much to do with intellectual awareness. Neptune as natural ruler of Pisces and the 12th house is associated with psychic awareness and subconscious memory extending far into the past. Just as individual islands are connected by the ocean bed underneath the ocean, seemingly separate personal identities are connected by a vast telepathic network or web of life. We are all connected through the collective unconscious mind. The global proliferation of electronic communications media through satellite communications, television, internet, fax machines, telephone, networks, cell phones, camcorders etc is creating an ever expanding global awareness that we are all part of the same human race and that what happens to one part of the world affects us all. Neptune in Aquarius has a 12th house relationship to His own sign of Pisces. Neptune in Aquarius is stirring up deep collective unconscious memories of ancient civilizations such as Atlantis which had a technological advancement even far greater than modern times. Much of what is going on today in the tragic misuse of technology is a karmic replay of what brought about the fall of those ancient advanced civilizations. This should be a grave warning.
The world is increasingly economically interdependent to an unprecedented extent in known human history. All of these factors are contributing to a rapidly expanding global telepathic awareness. Some people are more consciously aware of this than others but everyone experiences it on a subconscious level. It is possible to deceive the conscious mind, but it is far more difficult to lie to the subconscious mind which has vastly extended psychic radar. The ever intensifying level of cosmic spiritual energy affecting the Earth is steadily increasing the general level of human psychic awareness. Once people discover their ability to know things directly by psychic means they are less and less subject to external religious and political dogma. With Neptune in Aquarius the mass subconscious telepathy that makes up the collective unconscious mind of humanity is rising to the surface of mass conscious awareness like yeast leavening a lump of dough. This subtle but all pervasive process ultimately can not be stopped by corporate, governmental control or media censorship.
A significant instance of this happens in late February and early March of 2008 when Mercury turning retrograde makes a prolonged conjunction to Neptune at 21 degrees of Aquarius. Information will leak out and become part of the mass awareness despite official attempts to control it.
Significant to this is the current mutual reception of Uranus in Neptune’s sign of Pisces and Neptune in the Uranus ruled sign of Aquarius. This is highly significant in that Neptune rules the Piscean age we are currently leaving and Uranus as ruler of Aquarius is associated with the new age we are entering The mutual reception of Uranus in Pisces and Neptune in Aquarius is providing an important bridging influence.
This mutual reception is creating sudden outcroppings of psychic awareness on both individual and collective levels. Synchronistic karmic events orchestrated from a deeper lever are happening at an accelerated pace. The time lag between action and karmic feed back is becoming shorter and shorter resulting in what is called instant Karma. Mass karma of ages past on a massive scale is creating immense pressure to reach resolution in this brief period of history as everything is speeded up.
Neptune in Aquarius and Uranus in Pisces are bringing about many startling discoveries and unexpected archeological finds that are radically changing concepts about history and the age and sophistication of ancient civilizations. Ultimately this will lead to the general realization that we are not the first or most advanced technological civilization. These realizations will bring about the awareness that the official version of history has been deliberately distorted for political and economic reasons to serve the interests of the global power elite. While many of these discoveries are still being suppressed information is leaking out.
Neptune in Aquarius is contributing greatly to the mixing and mutual awareness of cultures from every part of the world leading to one synthesized global culture.
The negative side of Neptune is associated with addictions. Neptune in Aquarius can indicate addiction to television and electronic forms of entertainment as an escape mechanism. The negative side of Neptune in Aquarius also indicates electronic forms of mind control and subliminal advertising.
Neptune in Pisces
Neptune enters Pisces on April 5 2011 and retrogrades back into Aquarius on August 5 2011. Neptune reenters Pisces on February 4 2012. Neptune leaves Pisces and enters Ares on March 31 2025 and retrogrades back into Pisces on October 22 2025. Neptune reenters Aries on January 27 2026.
Neptune rules Pisces and so Neptune in His own sign will bring about a major intensification of psychic and intuitive faculties in the human race. This will take many forms including inspired art, increased memory of past lives, psychic awareness of the real past history of the world, and greater compassion based on empathy and intuitive understanding. Many children will be born with advanced intuitive gifts and advanced psychic talents. Progress into a new age will largely be based on the recovery of the memory of the very ancient past of advanced civilizations such as Atlantis, Lemuria, and beyond. Many of these civilizations had contact with extraterrestrial civilizations from other parts of the galaxy.
It is highly significant that at the same time the Vernal equinox in its precessed backwards motion through the sidereal zodiac leaves the first degree of Pisces and enters the last degree of Aquarius, transiting Neptune in its forward motion through the tropical zodiac leaves the last degree of Aquarius and enters the first degree of Pisces. As explained earlier in this book I base the timing of the beginning of the Aquarian age on the entry of the Pleiades into tropical zodiac Gemini and the ingress of Regales into tropical zodiac Virgo due to the precession of the equinoxes. Neptune as ruler of Pisces and the sign Pisces deal with the assimilation and ending of an old cycle before beginning a new cycle in Aries. The memory of the old cycle is stored in the subconscious and unconscious mind ruled by Neptune, Pisces and the 12th house. These deeper memories must be recapitulated and the psychic trauma associated with them must be cleared to successfully begin a new cycle. The last seconds before midnight (analogously speaking) of the Piscean age and the very beginning of the Aquarian age are largely about an accelerated process of psychic spiritual and cultural recapitulation on a mass level of what has gone before in ages past. We can only be prepared for the future and the new dispensation if we truly understand the real history of humanity, and planet Earth without bias, prejudice, and vested political agendas. The mutual reception of Uranus in Pisces and Neptune in Aquarius prior to Neptune’s entry into Pisces also contributes greatly to this cultural recapitulation. The influence of Uranus in this combination greatly speeds up the process.
By far the greater part of Neptune’s transit through Pisces happens after 2012. This could indicate cultural nostalgia if there has been great destruction and loss of life leading up to 2012.
Uranus in Pisces
Uranus entered Pisces on March 10 2003 and retrograded back into Aquarius on September 17 2003. Uranus reentered Pisces on December 31 2003. Uranus leaves Pisces and enters Aires on May 28 2010 and retrogrades back into Pisces on August 14 2010. Uranus re enters Aires on January 23 2011.
Uranus in Pisces is in a 2nd house relationship to His own sign of Aquarius. Many of the sudden unexpected karmic events which happen with Uranus in Pisces will have a major impact on world economic conditions. Economic conditions will shift in unusual, sudden unexpected ways. Much of this will come about through the introduction of radically different new technologies. Public anger and revolutionary sentiment will be aroused over economic abuse, theft, and misrepresentation by politicians, government, corporations, stock brokers, and the unconstitutional Federal Reserve System.
Pisces as the last sign of the zodiac summarizes a complete cycle of evolutionary experience of the previous 11 signs. For this reason Pisces is associated with past experiences and with the subconscious and unconscious mind which is the storehouse of past experiences regardless of whether they are consciously remembered or not. On a cultural level Pisces is related to history and the collective unconscious. Uranus is associated with sudden change and unusual occurrences. Uranus in Pisces will bring sudden dramatic revelations revealing the true nature of past history and ancient civilizations. Technologies related to archeology, dating, and researching historical artifacts will make important advances contributing to shocking revelations that will discredit official history. Questions will be raised as to whether history has been falsified to suit the agendas of the privileged elite. On an individual level there will be sudden outcroppings of subconscious memories of childhood and previous lives often accompanied by strong emotional reactions and releases. Stimulation of past subconscious memories will elicit extreme emotional reactions in many people which will seem disproportionate to what superficially triggers them. Uranus in Pisces will bring about many sudden unexpected karmic encounters with people from the past. Uranus in Pisces will bring about unexpected and sudden psychic occurrences and awakenings among many people who do not normally consider themselves as psychic and are not normally interested in such things. This is likely to cause a lot of confusion for such people who may wonder if they are going crazy or having hallucinations. They will need help and guidance from those more experienced with paranormal phenomena and unusual abilities.
Uranus in Pisces could bring important Breakthroughs, discoveries and innovations in therapies treatments and treatments for emotional disorders and mental illness. Many new methods and approaches to developing psychic awareness and remembering past lives will be explored and experimented with. There will major scientific advances related to water (especially electrical, psychic and crystalline properties of water) and oceanography.
Pisces is a sign that has much to do with creative imagination and therefore the arts. Uranus in Pisces will bring highly inspired, original, and innovative genius level creativity both in music and the visual arts. Much of this will involve creative use of recent technological advances in computer science, electronics, and ways of electronically combining visual and musical art forms. The arts will become a vehicle for the expression of social revolutionary sentiment even more than is usually the case.
Pisces is associated with monasteries, retreat centers, hospitals, mental institutions, prisons, and places of retreat, confinement, seclusion, and institutionalization in general. Uranus in Pisces will bring shocking revelations, revolutionary sentiment, and sudden changes regarding such institutions. Currently there are over 2 million people in prison in the United States, a higher per capita percentage by far than any other nation on earth. A high percentage of these prisoners are behind bars because of drug related offences that would be better dealt with through therapy and medical treatment. Yet the pharmaceutical industry controlled medical establishment dispenses antidepressants to the public and Ritalin to school children at the slightest pretext. Most of these so-called psychiatric drugs are more addictive, dangerous and damaging than many illegal drugs. For instance it is a known fact that brain receptors see Ritalin in the same way as cocaine. As these glaring abuses by the medical establishment become better understood by the general public there is likely to be a massive backlash. Current exposure of pedophiles in the Catholic Church and other established religious institutions could be only the tip of the iceberg with even more shocking revelations to come over the next few years. It will come to light that many people in mental institutions are there for political reasons or for having psychic awareness which is misdiagnosed as mental illness by the materialistic mind set of the psychiatric establishment.
During the entire 7 year transit of Uranus in Pisces Neptune is in Aquarius. Uranus and Neptune are each in the sign which the other rules. This is what astrologers call a mutual reception. This mutual reception is highly significant at this time in history because Neptune is the planetary ruler of the Piscean age we are passing out of while Uranus rules the Aquarian age we are about to enter. The peak of this transition occurs over the next 8 years and what happens during this time period will determine the future of planet Earth and human civilization for a long time to come. The mutual reception of Uranus and Neptune represents a changing of the guard so to speak. This critical 7 year period represents an opportunity for humanity to incorporate the most genuinely worthwhile evolutionary accomplishments of the Piscean age, while at the same time discarding the corrupt, decadent, elitist, unjust, and outmoded aspects of the old dispensation in favor of a more enlightened and democratic way of running things. This is a process which will require great wisdom, awareness discrimination, and concern for the long range good of humanity. This process will necessitate clearing the collective unconscious of age old deceit, fear programming, suppression, and brainwashing. This will require a massive shakedown and unbiased reevaluation of the institutions which have shaped human civilization. During Uranus in Pisces many children will be born with highly advanced psychic talents and abilities.
Uranus in Pisces can bring huge natural disasters involving the oceans such as the recent December 26 2004 underwater earthquake and tsunami disaster in south Asia.
Uranus in Aries
Uranus enters Aires on May 28 2010 and retrogrades back into Pisces on August 14 2010. Uranus reenters Aires on March 12 2011. Uranus leaves Aires and Enters Taurus on May 15 2018. Uranus retrogrades back into Aires on November7 2018 and reenters Taurus on March 6 2019.
Aires is the first sign of the zodiac representing new beginnings and the start of a new cycle. Aires is a cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars and as such is the most impulsive of all the signs. Uranus is associated with rapid unexpected revolutionary change. Therefore we can surmise that Uranus in Aires is a highly volatile explosive combination. Since Mars rules Aires, Uranus in Aires is somewhat like a Mars Uranus conjunction which is known to astrologers as an extremely dynamic, high tension and potentially explosive aspect. In political astrology (sometimes referred to as mundane astrology) Uranus is associated with the general population or the people. Uranus is politically democratic and reformist seeking to change the status quo. Uranus is associated with rebellions and revolutions. By contrast Pluto in Capricorn is likely to be very totalitarian. Between 2010 and 2015 Uranus in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn. This square will be most exact in 2012, 2014, and 2015. This will bring about a huge power struggle of the general population of the world seeking freedom and self determination versus a centralized economic and political power structure run by a global elite.
This could be revolution or class warfare on a global level. Violent revolution is not advisable as this usually provides the excuse for a repressive established power structure to be more militaristic and use police state tactics. Strategies such as massive general strikes, non compliance, and civil disobedience are more effective ways for the populace to end economic enslavement and bring down repressive regimes. Whatever form this struggle takes it will be showdown time with many explosive events because of the cardinal sign nature of Aries and Capricorn. This is the time frame in which accelerated change will reach peak intensity.
The Uranus in Aries period begins in 2010 with Jupiter conjunct Uranus on the Pisces Ares cusp. This conjunction spans a 9 month period from late May of 2010 to early February of 2011 during which Jupiter and Uranus both move back and forth over the Pisces Ares cusp indicating a major spiritual new beginning for humanity. This conjunction holds the promise for a worldwide mass spiritual awakening in which a critical mass could be reached enabling humanity to move towards an era of enlightened civilization. See the section on planetary configurations for more detail.
Uranus in Aries will be a time of pioneering a new civilization. Many new experiments in social organization will be made with new groups and communities being formed for the purpose of mutual support and survival.
If there has been much destruction chaos and loss of life in the years leading up to 2010, 2011, and 2012 as a result of war, disease, extreme weather, and earth changes Uranus in Aries could bring a period of free for all lawlessness resulting from the breakdown or absence or of normal political economic and social structures. Out of this chaos and political power vacuum the pioneering birth of a new civilization can take place.
Uranus in Aries has a third house relationship to His own sign of Aquarius. The third house is ruled by mercury and is associated with communications, ideas, information and the local neighborhood or nearby community. Uranus in Aries will bring mind blowing mental revelations about the nature of existence. Freedom of information will be a major political issue. Grass roots activism and new beginnings in community democratic organization for survival on a local level will be the order of the day. This will particularly be the case if long distance communication and transportation have broken down and become dysfunctional. Local ad hock community organization would then provide the seeds of a new order and a new civilization. By the time Uranus enters Aries people could have little or nothing to loose and therefore will be ready to initiate radical changes.
Many groups and organizations will be formed that will be extremely proactive and impatient to initiate democratic reform and social change.
Saturn in Leo
Saturn enters Leo on July 17 2005. Saturn leaves Leo and Enters Virgo on September 2 2007.
Saturn represents difficulties, restrictions, blockages, difficult karmic lessons, and need for discipline and hard work, ambitions, long range goals, professional status, and the established political and economic power structure. Leo represents people of charisma, power and authority as well as children and there education, speculation, the stock market, the entertainment industry, the arts, romance and pleasurable pursuits. All of these things associated with Leo are likely to experience and or cause difficulties with Saturn in Leo. This is a time when those in positions of power and leadership in the established political, business and religious power structures are likely to become inflexible dogmatic and dictatorial. They will attempt to hold on to and exploit their privileged positions of status and power. The egotistical and self riotous abuse of power can become extreme when Saturn in Leo is in difficult aspect to other planets such as when stationary Mars in Taurus squares Saturn in Leo in Late November 2005, December 2005, and Early January of 2006. Saturn which co rules Aquarius is in detriment in the opposite sign of Leo
On a medical level there will be an increase of back problems spinal injuries and heart disease. Abuse, neglect, and exploitation of children will lead to many problems with the younger generation. Education will suffer because of lack of funding due to money being wasted on war and corruption. School systems could become to standardized and rigid squelching creativity. This will be a period of economic melt down, stock market collapse, and bear market leading to unemployment and labor problems when Saturn is in Virgo.
Saturn in Leo will oppose Neptune in Aquarius during August and September of 2006 as well as February through July of 2007. This could exacerbate subconscious fears and increase anxiety resulting in an increase of mental illness and mass psychosis. Many people could lose their ability to cope and become psychological basket cases. Children will especially feel insecure in the face of mounting world crisis resulting in many psychological problems in the younger generation. Young people will feel alienated and cynical.
During this period of time Neptune will conjunct the tenth house Moon in the US chart and Saturn will oppose the US moon. The American people will feel that they have lost control of their government and there will be mass disillusionment with the political system. The people will not believe politicians and will have no confidence in government because they have been lied to and exploited too many times. This huge credibility gap will lead to social unrest, civil disobedience, tax revolt and even revolution. Big business and Government will attempt to exploit the entertainment industry to control the people through subtle psychological manipulation and instilling fear.
Saturn in Virgo
Saturn enters Virgo on September 2 2007. Saturn leaves Virgo and enters Libra on October 30 2009. Saturn retrogrades back into Virgo on April 8 2010 and reenters Libra on July 22 2010.
Virgo relates to matters of health, food, work, labor, and the armed services. Saturn in Virgo could bring a time of difficulty and even breakdown in medical services and infrastructure worldwide. This would particularly be true if by that time there have been widespread warfare and weather or earth change related natural disasters. The cumulative effects of environmental pollution, soil depletion, food additives, synthetic drugs and unhealthy lifestyles could reach major crisis proportions. Mass epidemics could result from mutated, natural, or genetically engineered diseases. There will be a return to more natural, practical, sustainable and traditional medical practices and methods of health care.
The results of economic meltdown could result in massive national and worldwide unemployment and labor unrest, contributing to a revolutionary mood in the general populace. There will be bad conditions in the military services leading to widespread dissatisfaction unrest and even mutiny. This could also be a time of crop failures, food shortages, and famine in many parts of the world. There will continue to be extreme abnormal weather patterns.
Saturn in Libra
Saturn enters Libra on October 30 2009 and retrogrades back into Virgo on April 8 2010. Saturn reenters Libra on July 22 2010. Saturn leaves Libra and enters Scorpio on October 6 2012.
Saturn in Libra has much to do with the legal System and issues of Justice Since Saturn is exalted in Libra. With Saturn in Libra we can expect major court battles as to whether or not important laws and government policies are constitutional. This is assuming that there is still a functioning government and legal system to carry on such activities, depending on how much chaos has happened by the time Saturn is gets to Libra in the fall of 2009.
Libra rules marriage and other important relationships, and so with Saturn in Libra we can expect a more traditional and conservative approach to marriage and relationships in general Social justice issues concerning the sharing and distribution of the world’s food natural resources and wealth will be the major issue of the day.
Saturn in Scorpio
Saturn enters Scorpio on October 6 2012 Saturn leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on December 24 2014. Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio on June 15 2015. Saturn leaves Scorpio and re enters Sagittarius on September 18 2015.
Scorpio ruled by Pluto has to do with the concept of recycling. That is what is left over after any processes (the waste products), have to be re assimilated by the ongoing process of life and evolution. If this does not happen and recycling fails to take place these waste products become toxic, poisoning life and impeding evolutionary process. Evolution is a process in which the one supreme consciousness which pervades all things works through developing life forms on all levels to make these life forms capable of expressing more of the creative attributes which only the totality of existence had in the beginning of the evolutionary process. Thus through evolution the creator’s attributes and powers are multiplied in each of its creations. That which furthers the evolution of consciousness as it expresses through developing life forms is good. That which impedes this evolution is evil. As has been pointed out evil is live spelled backwards or reverse evolution. An example of recycling in nature is dead leaves falling of trees to form fertilizer for next year’s crop. An example of failure to recycle waste products correctly is dumping raw sewage and toxic chemicals in the oceans which poisons fish and other sea life thus poisoning the food chain for higher life forms including man.
With Saturn in Scorpio many serious karmic consequences (Saturn) resulting from the failure to properly recycle industrial and military waste products will become a major hazard to life and human survival on Earth.
With Saturn in Scorpio there will be major problems with excessive tax burdens and economic systems burdened with excessive debt. If there has been massive destruction and loss of life insurance companies will not be able to keep up with claims and could default on payments and go bankrupt.
World conditions will necessitate a practical reassessment of the meaning of death and how to handle the affairs of the dead including the proper disposal of dead bodies.
Jupiter in Libra
Jupiter entered Libra on September 5 2004. Jupiter leaves Libra and enters Scorpio on October 26 2005.
Jupiter is a planet associated with expansion and increase. In the tradition of astrology Jupiter is called the greater benefic as the influence of Jupiter brings growth and good fortune to whatever it touches. Through his ruler ship of Sagittarius and the 9th house Jupiter is associated with philosophy, religion, higher education, travel, and spirituality. Jupiter has much to do with the customs, moral standards, religious concepts, collective values, and belief systems of a culture or society. Jupiter can also have a negative side in that such collective belief systems can be distorted and prostituted to political and economic ends. Misuse of Jupiter energy can lead to excessiveness.
Libra is the primary relationship sign having to do with marriage, important relationships, and partnerships of all kinds. Libra is also the sign most associated with law and the legal profession. With Jupiter in Libra we can expect an increase in the formation of all kinds of relationships, partnerships and marriages. Many of these could take place over long distances or with foreigners. There will be greater concern with fairness and what constitutes real justice from a spiritual point of view. There will be more interest in cooperation between various cultural and spiritual traditions at least among the proponents of these who have a more enlightened understanding. There will be increased interest in understanding psychology in the context of a historical cultural and spiritual perspective.
Legal contests could arise over issues of separation of church and state. Legal issues regarding marriage and divorce will be a major focus.
Jupiter in Scorpio
Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 26 2005 and leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on November 24 2006.
Jupiter’s transit through Scorpio will bring controversy over sexuality as traditional religions seek to impose their version of sexual morality. At the same time the proliferation of pornography and the use of sex for commercial purposes in advertising and the promotion of products will reach an even greater fever pitch. It is important to realize that either extreme is undesirable and that sex should be approached in a sane way without guilt and without exploitation. One of the most unfortunate aspects of our modern media culture (or lack of it) is the constant association of sex with violence in movies TV and other entertainment. This is not a chance occurrence and is done deliberately as a form of mass subconscious mind control and manipulation. By associating sex with violence, fear and guilt are generated on a subconscious level which feeds negative astral entities and furthers manipulation of the mass consciousness. Sex should be about love not violence. When People discover the true nature of their sexuality they are spiritually empowered, and this the mass controllers do not want.
Jupiter in Scorpio will bring a more spiritual understanding of death, that the death of the body does not mean the death of the ongoing spiritual entity. Like many other things death has been commercialized in an exploitative way with expensive elaborate funerals fancy coffins etc. This exploitation also takes the form of forcing people to stay alive with extreme medications and costly artificial life support systems far beyond the point where their physical body can be of any use to them. This is a disservice which impedes the normal evolutionary cycle of birth, physical life, death, discarnate life, and reincarnation while at the same time it financially impoverishes the family of the person who is dying. There will be increased interest in reincarnation life after death and communication with deceased people and non physical beings.
During Jupiter in Scorpio efforts will be made to reform the tax system which has become excessively complicated, convoluted and corrupt. This could perhaps be substituting a national sales tax in place of the current income tax. The insurance industry could undergo important changes.
Jupiter in Sagittarius
Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 17 2006 and leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn on December19 2007.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is in his own sign and so we can expect an expansion (Jupiter) of religious belief systems and higher education. This will take many forms from the most enlightened to the most narrow and indoctrinated. Long distance travel and commerce will be emphasized. This will include education through traveling and direct participation in the histories and cultures being studied. In response to the major world crisis that will be happening in this period of time many charismatic religious movements will arise promising spiritual direction and purpose in life in response to the insecurity and uncertainty of the times.
Mid November to Mid December of 2007 is of major importance because Jupiter conjuncts The Galactic Center and Pluto at that time indicating transformational world events on a mega scale. This could include open mass contact with extraterrestrial civilizations. Whatever world altering events happen at that time could shake traditional religious and cultural belief systems to their very foundations. There will be a necessity to look much deeper to the very core essence of existence to understand the significance of what is going on.
In January. April, May, late September and early October of 2007 Jupiter in Sagittarius squares Uranus in Pisces. This also will challenge traditional belief systems and bring some radical experimental approaches to religion, education, and concepts of social organization.
Jupiter in Capricorn
Jupiter enters Capricorn
on December 19 2007 and leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on January 6th 2009
Capricorn is a practical earth sign ruled by Saturn and so Jupiter’s influence is toned down in Capricorn as the spiritual idealism of Jupiter meets the inertia of existing economic, political, industrial, and physical conditions. Social, cultural, and religious ideals get put to the practical test. This is where Religious idealism often gets corrupted and co opted by economic and political interests. During this period big business and big government could seek even greater aggrandizement by prostituting religion and education to its own purposes. This transit of Jupiter through Capricorn takes place as Pluto is entering Capricorn the period of time when attempts could be made at totalitarian world takeover. Jupiter who is exalted in Cancer is in its fall in Capricorn.
On the positive side efforts will be made to reform business and political power structures. Jupiter makes a prolonged sextile to Uranus during March April, May, and June 2008 providing an opportunity to make some positive cultural changes, Important discoveries could come to light regarding the true nature of humanities ancient past as suppressed information and archeological discoveries are brought to light. New social experiments in grass roots businesses and collective local enterprises to provide the necessities of life in a practical and sustainable way will be implemented. Spiritual guidence that has practical usefulness will come from spontaneous, intuitively guided sources.
Jupiter in Aquarius
Jupiter enters Aquarius on January 6 2009 and leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces on January 18 2010.
Aquarius is an intellectual air sign associated with friendships groups and organizations. With Jupiter in Aquarius there will be an expansion of organizations and group activities for the purpose of humanitarian reform and spiritual development along more universal and scientific lines that go beyond the limitations of traditional religious dogmas and sectarian belief systems. Of particular importance will be the conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius during May, June, and July of 2009 with Jupiter turning retrograde at 27 degrees of Aquarius on June 15. This conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune repeats itself after Jupiter goes direct in December 2009. This conjunction is also semisextile to Uranus in Pisces and amplifies the mutual reception of Neptune in Aquarius and Uranus in Pisces. This conjunction will bring in a refined spiritual energy of universal love. There will be an increase of intuitive psychic awareness under the influence of this conjunction with many people who do not normally consider themselves psychic or spiritually inclined having spontaneous intuitive, spiritual experiences. Many futuristic channelings and spiritual messages will be brought through from beings existing in subtler spiritual dimensions. This conjunction will stimulate humanitarian idealism and aspiration for a spiritually united humanity based on a universal brotherhood and sisterhood that transcends narrow belief systems. Spiritual rituals and globally coordinated mass meditations and ceremonies will be favored by Jupiter in Aquarius and Jupiter conjunct Neptune.
Jupiter in Pisces
Jupiter enters Pisces on January 18 2010 and leaves Pisces and enters Aquarius on June 6 2010. Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces on September 9 2010 and re enters Aries on January 23 2011.
Before Neptune was discovered Jupiter was considered the ruler of Pisces and Jupiter is still considered as the co ruler of Pisces and so Jupiter is very powerful in Pisces. Pisces as a water sign is closely associated with feelings and emotions. Jupiter in Pisces emphasizes the ability to empathize with and have compassion for others. Jupiter in Pisces also furthers the ability to access the deeper self and tap into psychic memory and the collective unconscious in a manner similar to the influence of Neptune.
Of major importance will be the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus which takes place in late Pisces and early Aries. This conjunction starts in May 2010 with Jupiter still in Pisces. Uranus enters Aries on May 28 2010 and Jupiter enters Aries on June 6 2010. Jupiter is exactly conjunct Uranus on June 8 2010 and continues to conjunct Uranus through January 2011. Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces on September 9 2010 while closely conjunct Uranus which retrograded back into Pisces on August 14 2010. Jupiter reenters Aries on January 23 2011 while separating from the conjunction with Uranus. This Jupiter Uranus conjunction lasts for 9 months from May 2010 to January 2011 longer than usual due to the combined retrograde motions of Jupiter and Uranus.
This Jupiter Uranus conjunction has major significance because it marks the point at which a global spiritual awakening could reach critical mass propelling humanity into the dawning of the Aquarian Age. It is highly significant that the conjunction happens on the Pisces Ares cusp as this signifies the ending of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one, as Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. This conjunction has the capacity to synthesize the best spiritual evolution of the past into a major breakthrough in the beginning of a new cultural and spiritual dispensation. Revolutionary changes, discoveries, and revelations will take place concerning the potentials of human consciousness and the real nature of history, human origins and evolution. New cultural forms of social, political and economic organization will be invented out of necessity
The current corporate model of social economic organization is an economic feudal structure based on a military style pyramidal chain of command. To make the critical leap in human evolution that is necessary it is essential that we create an entirely new model of economic social organization that is holographic in nature. In such a model leadership and solutions to problems can come from any pint in the social fabric and be immediately distributed and implemented throughout the network.
Jupiter in Aries
Jupiter enters Aries on June 6 2010 and retrogrades back into Pisces on September 9 2010. Jupiter reenters Aries on January 23 2011. Jupiter leaves Aries and enters Taurus on June 5 2011.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac or the sign of new beginnings. Jupiter in Aries will bring pioneering new approaches to higher education, religion, philosophy and cultural ethics. Passionate, brave, and charismatic new cultural and spiritual leaders will emerge to challenge the old corrupt way of running business, politics and religion. The Jupiter Uranus Conjunction referred to under Jupiter in Pisces and other places in this document also takes place with Jupiter in Aries between June 6 and September 9 2010 with Uranus also in Aries up until August 14 2010 when Uranus retrogrades back into Pisces. This period especially and Jupiter in Aries in general will mark the beginning of important new spiritual and cultural movements.
Jupiter in Aries could be a time of mass migrations because Climate changes, Earth changes, wars, ecological disasters or political and economic problems may have by that time made heavily populated regions uninhabitable. In any event there will be much restlessness and shifting about with many people leaving urban areas to seek a more sustainable lifestyle in more remote and rural inland locations.
Jupiter in Aries will oppose Saturn in Libra during late July, August, early September of 2010 and also late March and early April 2011. The old established power structure represented by Saturn will attempt to use legal (Libra) means to stem the tide of radical social change represented by Jupiter and Uranus in Aries. From late May through Early September Jupiter conjunct Uranus opposition Saturn squares Pluto in Capricorn indicating a global revolutionary conflict between the general populace represented by Jupiter and Uranus and a corrupt totalitarian power elite represented by Saturn square Pluto in Capricorn. The fact that this T square happens with the planets involved mostly in cardinal signs makes it even more confrontational because the crisis can no longer be put off people will demand immediate change and reform.
Jupiter in Taurus
Jupiter enters Taurus on June 5 2011 and leaves Taurus and enters Gemini on June 13 2012.
New cultural movements initiated under Jupiter in Aries will need to be made practical in terms of material necessities with Jupiter in Taurus. There will be increased support for creating a more just economic system and economic reforms that support the rights of the people. This could make necessary new types of economic exchange based on bartering work time, goods and services. There will be emphasis on new forms of agriculture, and sustainable ways of making use of the resources of the Earth.
During late June, early July, late October, early November of 2011 and March of 2012 Jupiter in Taurus will trine Pluto in Capricorn. This could bring about some ingenious methods of recycling and making practical use of waste products of all kinds including what is left over after natural or man made catastrophes. Breakthroughs will be made in spiritually understanding death, reincarnation, and the survival of the conscious entity after death.
During December of 2011 and January of 2012 Jupiter will sextile Neptune in late Aquarius and semisextile Uranus in Aries. This will help to generate greater spiritual awareness expressed in a practical way. From November 11 2011 until July 4 2012 Mars will be in Virgo during a retrograde period and will trine Jupiter in Taurus in mid November 2011 and mid March 2012 increasing constructive action and practical work.
Jupiter in Taurus will bring greater spiritual awareness and sense of moral responsibility regarding protecting the ecology, and the natural environment. There will be greater interest in and support for nature based or shamanistic forms of spirituality.
Jupiter in Gemini
Jupiter enters Gemini on June 12 2012 and leaves Gemini and enters Cancer on June 26 2013.
If there has been major breakdown of communication systems in the years leading up to 2012 Jupiter in Gemini will facilitate reestablishing communication systems. Jupiter in Gemini facilitates the expansion and communication of knowledge and spiritual concepts. This could include telepathic communication.
The second occultation of Venus passing in front of the disk of the sun in Gemini takes place on June 5 2012 at 15 degrees of Gemini. The first occultation took place on June 7 2004 at 17 degrees of Gemini. These Venus occultations in Gemini greatly contribute to telepathic awareness and spiritual discernment at a critical period in history. Jupiter will be stationary turning retrograde at 16 degrees of Gemini on October 4 2012 and will conjunct the Venus occultation position during late August, September, October and early November 2012. This will greatly amplify the influence of the Venus occultations. Any important celestial event such as the Venus occultation leaves an energy imprint that can be triggered and activated by later planetary positions such as Jupiter passing over the point where the occultation happened. This will greatly facilitate the growth of spiritual intelligence. Jupiter will again pass over this point in late April of 2013.
Jupiter is sextile Uranus in late July 2012 thus promoting the expansion of pioneering new philosophies and cultural concepts.
Mars retrograde periods
Mars has a period of retrograde motion every 2 years in which Mars can spend up to 6 months or more in one sign. Mars normally takes about 45 days to transit a sign. Mars retrograde periods are highly significant because the affairs ruled by the sign Mars is retrograde in are activated and energized fore a sustained period of time and aspects which Mars makes to other planets can last much longer if Mars is stationary when the aspect is made. Mars stationary and retrograde periods can bring important turning points where decisive actions taken at that time give rise to a new direction in the subsequent unfolding of events. During retrograde periods Mars is closest to the Earth increasing the power of his influence by closer proximity to the Earth.
Mars retrograde in Taurus
Mars will be in Taurus from July 28 2005 until February 17 2006. This prolonged transit of Mars through Taurus is likely to be a time of great economic turmoil which will cause anger, frustration, and revolutionary sentiment. This transit takes place in the 12th house of the US horoscope indicating much secretive behind the scenes plotting and activity by the military, intelligence agencies, subversive organizations and secret government. The Mars in Taurus transit could exacerbate earth quakes, volcanic eruptions or other disruptions affecting the physical environment. Mars is stationary turning retrograde at 23 degrees of Taurus on October 2 2005.During this period Mars is Inconjunct Pluto from September 7 until October 23. This will be a time of high tension characterized by violent and destructive events.
Mars is stationary turning direct at 8 degrees of Taurus on December 2 2005. During this period Mars will Square Saturn in Leo from early November 2005 until Early January 2006. This time holds the danger of repressive military control and authoritarian big brother style government possibly as a result of violent events happening during the first Mars stationary period during September and October of 2005. In a worst case scenario there could be martial law in various parts of the world.
Mars stationary and retrograde in Cancer and Gemini
Mars enters Gemini on August 8 2007 and leaves Gemini and enters Cancer on September 29 2007. Mars is in opposition to Pluto conjunct the Galactic center September 17 to September 28 2007 allowing for an approximate 2 degree orb. This can be a highly dangerous time for the world where wars and other violent occurrences could take place. This transit closely mirrors alignments by mars and other planets to the galactic center that took place in May and June of 2001 that led up to the events of 9 11. These issues could be revisited. Mars turns retrograde on November 16 2007 at 12 degrees of Cancer and turns direct at 24 degrees of Gemini on January 30 2008 four days after Pluto enters Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn has the potential to be very totalitarian. Mars returns to 12 degrees of Cancer the position at which He turned retrograde on April 4 2008 ending the Mars retrograde cycle.
During all of January, February, and the first week of March of 2008 Mars is in opposition to Pluto or the Galactic Center. Most of this transit is with Mars in the last degrees of Gemini. Events started during late September 2007 will have major consequences in early 2008.
The fall 0f 2007 and winter of 2008 could be the time in which an attempt at world fascist takeover is made using orchestrated events to create mass trauma fear and panic as in 9 11 to create the pretext for police state. It should be noted that the January 30 Mars stationary direct position at 24 degrees of Gemini is conjunct the precession corrected Mars of the US horoscope and square the 5th house precession corrected US Neptune. Scorpio ruled by Mars and Pluto is intercepted in the 6th house (military) of the US horoscope. Aries ruled by Mars is on the 12th house cusp (covert activities, hidden enemies, and secret agencies) of the US horoscope. This period of time will directly involve the US and US military in some very dangerous events.
Jupiter conjuncts the Galactic center and Pluto in early December 2007 indicating events on a mega scale during crucially important juncture of history occurring in the fall of 2007 and winter of 2008.
Mars retrograde in Leo
Mars will transit Leo from October 17 2009 until June 10 2010. Mars turns retrograde at 19 degrees of Leo on December 20 2009 and turns direct at 0 degrees of Leo on March 10 2010.
Mars in Leo is a fiery planet in a fire sign. Mars in fire signs often corresponds with periods of abnormally hot weather. This prolonged transit of Mars through Leo could exacerbate the already very serious global warming trend which could cause drought and violent storms in various parts of the world. There could also be an increased incidence of out of control fires including wild fires, forest fires, buildings burning down, and fires caused by wars, oil spills and industrial accidents. There will be an increased problem with out of control egos, unreasonable abuse of authority and despotic tyrants and rulers. On the positive side this transit will encourage positive determined action and positive, courageous leadership. This will be combined with discipline, good organization, and practical cooperation in late February and March of 2010 when Mars stationary turning direct makes a sextile to Saturn exalted in Libra.
Mars retrograde in Virgo
Mars will transit Virgo from November 11 2011 until July 4 2012. Mars turns retrograde at 23 degrees of Virgo on January 24 2012 and turns direct on April 14 2012 at 3 degrees of Virgo.
Virgo is associated with the medical profession, industry, labor and the military. Mars in Virgo will bring active changes in all of these fields. A major medical crisis could happen if epidemics have gotten out of control or if there has been much death and destruction in the intervening years. There could also be labor uprisings with major strikes to protest abusive working conditions low wages and corrupt government. This could include massive national and international general strikes to protest oppressive governments and multi national corporations. This could be a way of combating global fascism. What form this takes will depend on what has happened in the intervening years.
Chaper 5: The US horoscope
It is generally agreed among most astrologers that the United States began on July 4 1776 with the declaration of independence. There are, however questions and differences of opinion as to the time of day the Declaration of independence was actually signed. Some astrologers use a 7 degree Gemini rising chart and others subscribe to a Sagittarius rising chart while still others use Libra rising. Other charts for the articles of confederation and ratification of the constitution are also used.
I personally subscribe to the 7 degree Gemini rising chart because to me it most accurately describes the US as a country. In this chart Uranus at 8 degrees and 53 minutes of Gemini conjuncts the Ascendant. The United began with a Declaration of Independence and was born of revolution (Uranus) and has led the world in technological innovation. The Moon is in Aquarius (ruled by Uranus) in the 10th house (government) showing that the U.S. was intended to be a democracy of rule by the people. Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun conjunct in the second house in Cancer show the extreme wealth that the country has enjoyed. In this chart the Sun squares Saturn in the 5th house of the stock market indicating the periodic cycle of bear markets and economic recessions which the United States goes through. Neptune in the 5th house square Mars shows the illusionary Hollywood entertainment industry and problems with alcohol and drug addiction, gambling and stock market manipulation. Mercury is in the emotional sign of Cancer in the 3rd house (news media) in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn (big corporations) showing manipulation and censorship of news or managed media. Public opinion is emotionally manipulated through corporate controlled news outlets and caned, manipulated media.
In the year 2000 the progressed midheaven of the 7 degree Gemini rising U.S chart was conjunct to Neptune and in 20004 transiting Neptune was conjunct the Midheaven of this chart. In both cases this indicates fraud in the electoral process in which the government has been usurped by the corrupt power elite. It is a total travesty that the programming for voting machines should be considered proprietary secrets when elections belong to the people. If there is nothing to hide why hide it?
It should be noted that transits to the U.S. chart should be calculated to the precession corrected positions of the planets in the U.S. chart as well as the natal positions. This is done by adding the amount of precession that has happened since 1776 to the birth positions. As of 2008 this amounts to 3 degrees and 14 minutes to be added to the tropical zodiac planetary positions of July 4 1776. In the case of Uranus at 8 degrees and 53 minutes of Gemini the precession corrected position of Uranus for 2008 becomes 12 degrees and 10 minutes of Gemini.
On September 11 2001 Pluto was at 12 degrees and 38 minutes of Sagittarius directly opposite the U.S. precession corrected Uranus and transiting Saturn was at 14 degrees and 45 minutes of Gemini roughly conjunct U.S. precession corrected Uranus. It is important to understand that an opposition of Saturn in Gemini to Pluto in Sagittarius had been on going and activating The U.S. precession corrected Uranus since July 2001 the period of time when the final orchestration of 911 took place. It is also highly significant that on 911 transiting Uranus was retrograding at 21 degrees and 50 minutes of Aquarius applying to a conjunction with the U.S. precession corrected Moon at 21 degrees and 18 minutes of Aquarius. This shows a major shock (Uranus) to the mass consciousness (Moon) of the U.S. This was done deliberately as a form of mass trauma based mind control.
In 2006 transiting Neptune will conjunct the Moon of the US horoscope, and in 2007 and 2008 transiting Neptune will conjunct the precession corrected US Moon. The Moon is especially important in the US horoscope because she is placed in the 10th house of government and because the Moon rules Cancer the sun sign of the US. This Neptune transiting conjunction to the US Moon will bring mass disillusionment about government and those in positions of power as well as even greater efforts at mass brainwashing through manipulated electronic media by the corporate aristocracy. There will be a subtle battle for control of the American psyche. Those Americans of discernment will increasingly see through the façade of government and corporate lies. Many others will be increasingly hypnotized by the controlled mass media and manipulation through fear. Manipulation through use of the media to inculcate a psychology of fear will especially be a problem when Transiting Saturn opposes the US Moon and precession corrected Moon in the fall of 2006 and the first half of 2007. This coincides with the Saturn Neptune opposition at the time when Neptune conjuncts and Saturn opposes the US Moon. For many American families this could be a harsh and disillusioning reality lesson as many people are unable to pay their mortgages and loose their homes. This will coincide with the bursting of the real-estate boom bubble. It is a sad fact that most people with a typical 30 year mortgage pay for their houses 3 times over before it is paid off. Most people who think that they own their houses in reality have a bank as their landlord.
Transiting Neptune continues to conjunct the precession corrected Us Moon through 2008. In the 7 degree Gemini rising chart for the US the Moon rules the 2nd house of money and banking and disposits the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter in Cancer in the 2nd house. There will continue to be a deepening and expanding subtle but pervasive awareness in the American psyche on a collective subconscious level that the people have no real say in their government and that everything is manipulated through monopolistic corporate media, lobbyists, blackmail, computerized election fraud, payoffs, secret deals, false flag terrorist events, and corruption. A major part of this is the awareness that the American economic system is no longer secure and that we are living on borrowed money and borrowed time, while major industries and the jobs that go with them have been outsourced to foreign countries. The value of the dollar has decreased 40% (as of January 2008) over the last 5 years against foreign currencies. There is now serious danger of a catastrophic collapse of the dollars value which would mean the end of life as we have known it in America and would probably trigger a global economic depression.
Massive unemployment (also associated with Saturn in Virgo) and massive home foreclosures would bring about a radical shift in the political climate where the populace would become more proactive about doing something about the general awareness that the country has been taken over by criminal elements and that revolution in some form is necessary. People get radical when they feel they have nothing to loose. Revolutionary sentiment will especially take hold when Uranus enters Ares in 2010.
Of particular concern is the conjunction made by stationary transiting Mars to the procession corrected US Mars at 24 degrees and 11 minutes of Gemini and the simultaneous square of Mars to the precession corrected 5th house US Neptune. A crisis situation would have serious consequences for the stock market. Transiting Mars turns direct at 24 degrees and 5 minutes of Gemini on January 30 2008 exactly conjunct precession corrected Mars in the US horoscope.
This date coincides closely to Mercury turning retrograde at 23 degrees and 48 minutes of Aquarius on January 28 2008 and the Pluto Capricorn ingress on January27.
Mars is associated with the military in astrology in general and the US in particular. Mars is associated with 2 signs Ares and Scorpio and 3 if you include Capricorn where Mars is exalted. In the 7 degrees Gemini rising US chart Scorpio is intercepted in the 6th house (military) while Ares is on the cusp of the 12th house (secret agencies) and Capricorn covers the 8th house of corporations, public money, taxes, and big financial interests.
Transiting Mercury at the time of turning retrograde is conjunct Neptune from January 20 to February 6 2008 within a 3 degree orb. This conjunction of transiting Mercury and Neptune is conjunct the precession corrected Moon in the 10th house of the US chart.
All of this suggests that something major is up involving secret military operations which have the danger of instigating war. That Mercury is turning retrograde while conjunct Neptune suggests attempts by government to confuse or mislead the public about covert operations. Such covert military and intelligence could possibly be to create an orchestrated false flag event such as 911 as an excuse for provoking war with Iran and instigating military rule at home. This is reminiscent of transiting Uranus conjunct precession corrected US Moon when 911 happened. 911 was used to justify war with Afghanistan and Iraq. Even more sinister there is much scientific evidence as well as reliable eye witness testimony that the official story of 911 is a lie. While many people would be taken in by this on a collective subconscious level the people would know they were being lied to and the truth would leak out in various ways eventually leading to the disgrace of national leaders and other highly placed government, military, business, and media figures.
It is also possible that elements within the military and intelligence community who are opposed to the ruinous fascist agenda of the current administration could arrest or assassinate the president, vice president and other high government officials rather than risk provoking world war three.
At the very least this is a dangerous, volatile and confusing time for the US. Transiting Mercury crosses the US midheaven at 14 degrees Aquarius twice, on February 9 while retrograde and on March 2 after having gone direct. Mercury goes direct on February 19 at 8 degrees of Aquarius. Mercury goes back to the original degree of 23 Aquarius that he turned retrograde at on March 10, completing the retrograde cycle. During the entire retrograde cycle Mercury is near or conjunct the US precession corrected Moon, natal Moon, precession corrected midheaven or natal midheaven at some time or another during the retrograde cycle. During most of this time Mercury is conjunct Chiron or Neptune.
The strong 10th house emphasis in the US chart of this Aquarius Mercury retrograde cycle suggests intensified news media coverage and public debate about political candidates and government actions. Because of mercury conjunct Neptune and Chiron we will not get honesty or transparency from government or corporate controlled major media. The Bush administration will do everything it can to censor, doctor, and spin the news. We can expect more of the same lying distortion and cover up. This in the context of the above mentioned Mars transits to the US horoscope is likely to relate to manufactured crisis events used to distract, misguide, and stampede public opinion to support a corrupt pre decided elitist corporate agenda.

As with 911 eventually the lies and inconsistencies will be too pervasive to cover up. Long standing government corruption and abuses will come to light during this mercury retrograde cycle.
