Winter weather in the northern hemisphere this season has been very active. Blizzards with record amounts of snow and cold temperatures have been inclined by global transits to such an extent that most regions across the hemisphere will have experienced the best winter in four years when all is said and done.
Winter will give way to Spring 2010, I am forecasting an early spring season to erupt across North America with threats of flooding in the Midwest. The Mississippi River is highlighted.
Temperatures will be above average during the spring season, so much so, that my late April, much of the United States will experience near summer-like temperatures, and by mid-May, it will feel as if summer has already arrived.
This year of 2010 features many changes and transitions in the lives of people everywhere. The climate for the most part will see above average temperatures during the spring, summer and autumn months. Global transits are quite powerful during the months of July & August, which feature the Cardinal Cross transits.
For several years I had been forecasting that the current era were are now in was coming. It was difficult for some to believe what I forecasted back in 2006 & 2007 when I warned about the coming economic crisis, and the resulting social tensions.
After the Panic of 2008, which is really the Banking Crisis that came about after years of wild speculation in a rigged real estate market bubble that imploded; many people have found themselves drowning in debt.
Now, in February 2010, it has become obvious to most people that the world is now deep in economic crisis. As winter wanes in the northern hemisphere and gives way to spring, and then summer, the celestial transits show intense energies at work with the Cardinal Cross transits involving Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto.
We can see popular anger building in some countries already. For instance, in the bankrupted nation of Greece, tensions were already evident on the streets of Athens February 9 when citizens chanted "traitors" outside the Greek Parliament.
Outraged at austerity measures and cuts dictated by the European Parliament in Brussels, striking workers from Greece's public sector brought the country to a standstill, effectively down shutting airports, schools and hospitals. Another general strike is planned for February 24.

This is a preview of the larger strikes and clashes to come during the summer months of 2010, and the inclinations of the Cardinal Crisis transits. I am forecasting such scenes as we are seeing in Greece to take hold in many other nations.
If we look at current global trends, we can easily assess that humanity has challenges, crisis, and choices to make in order to blunt most of the celestial inclinations -
- Challenges - To face the future with hope rather than angst
- Crisis - To overcome the outworn, the negative, that which does not work
- Choices - To form & act on positive visions for the future without angst and fear

The transits above show that the energies from late spring through to early autumn will be tense for much of the world. I have forecasted a wide-range of events -
- Disasters on the high seas
- Problems with Sea-going vessels
- Global Weather Events, El Nino/La Nina
- Contraction of China’s bubble economy, Asian economic crisis
- General Transportation accidents, snafus & crashes
- Generational transition & resentments
- Economic stress leading to disruptions in Society-at-large
- Frequency of rebellions, riots & increasing acts of violence
- Criminal and underworld activity
- Hints of coming revolutionary forces
My mundane forecast briefly outlined above shows a world clearly in transition. That much is certain. What will define this new decade will be the ability of a new bold generation to take the mantle of leadership while accepting the mess that has been left behind.
How this is accomplished practically will depend in great part on the ability of people to accept the things that they cannot change, and to change the things that they can. A simple enough philosophy, yes, but how to do so in a world given daily to disruption, disorder and confusion?
How To Navigate 2010
Try to see 2010 as a special year of opportunities, transitions and changes. The year is very active, and reflects the ending of one era, and the opening of another - a truly historic year.
Of course, the economy and employment will be the top issues. However, many people at this time are also considering a total change in careers, and relationships in 2010. There is so much happening at the same time it seems that some people may be overwhelmed by it all.
The best ways to navigate is to use the favorable transits of Jupiter from February to late June 2010. Jupiter will emerge from the far side of the Sun on Feb. 28, 2010, and will begin to rise in the early dawn skies throughout March and April.
The inclinations of Jupiter's transit in Pisces from now to mid-July (when its retrograde occurs) and then from mid-November to late August 2011 allows for significant progress to be made in personal, professional and business affairs.
There is rapid change on all levels, and those who accept the changes in society will be able to make the most out of the transits up to the months of July & August 2010, when I advise people to then take it easy, relax, and not allow the fiercely cardinal energies of that time to dominate.
Remember, the summer months of the Cardinal Cross transits of July & August will be very active, tempers flare; nor do world transits favor travel, or activity in and around bodies of water. This simply will not be your average summer - the T-square involving Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto are powerful, heady, impulsive, reactionary, and very tense for the most part.
People will emerge from the cold and snowy winter months in the northern hemisphere into spring 2010. By March 20, 2010, when the vernal equinox occurs, we see the start of a new astrological year that truly kicks off what will also be an historic year worldwide.
Ten days earlier, transiting Mars will have stationed direct at 0-Leo, after a retrograde that began Dec. 20, 2009. Then, on April 7, 2010, Saturn re-enters Virgo, and by April 26, conducts its fourth opposition to Uranus in Pisces. All of this indicates that the unresolved issues from the Panic of 2008, and the economic crisis have not been really addressed.
So, by the time the weather clears, and warm temperatures arrive with spring, then summer, the high unemployment rate, hot temperatures add to the seething public anger at banker bonus types, Wall Street, realtors, insurance companies, politicians - any and all who are blamed for the economic crisis. The cardinal inclinations, by summer 2010, will have caused populations worldwide to become even more pissed off.
If policymakers would have heeded astrological advice, they would never have been able to get themselves (and everyone else) into the global economic mess.
Now, there is no way to put the genie back into the bottle.
So, by the time of the Cardinal Cross transits of July & August 2010 arrive - people have had it. And this is just the beginning of several more years of cardinal inclinations. The summer months of 2010 feature so much running around, reactionary sentiments, and impulsiveness, that it is better to take the summer off and stay away from crowds. The energies are simply too strong for many to handle.
Saying this, of course, does not mean people will take it easy. My forecast for the Cardinal Climax, Cross, or Cardinal Crisis transits (depending on what one's point of view about these transits are) remains the same as it has been for years - it is not a time to get all worked up - however, millions of people will do just that and we will all see it reflected in the world news of summer 2010.
Those reading this forecast should seriously consider exactly what they will be doing this summer. Plan ahead, and do not engage in impulsive trips, especially overseas.
Travel is not favored in the months of July, August, and September 2010. This is a summer to stay home, and to wait until mid-September, when things calm down a bit more.
Parents should pay special attention to their children this summer, and keep them close to home. Accidents are forecasted for July & August 2010 because of the highly compulsive cardinal inclinations towards impulsive behavior. Caution should be used around all bodies of water, and accidents that affect the feet and the head are forecasted.
The best way to get around the inclinations and stresses of 2010 is to understand that the cycle from March 2010 to March features a world in transition. These changes should be welcomed as long as one is able to take advantage of the most favorable periods.
These periods are -
February to mid-July 2010: Jupiter will be direct until July 23, when Jupiter stations retrograde at 3-Aries, and continues its retrograde to November 18, 2010, when Jupiter turns direct in motion at 23-Pisces.
The cycle from February to late June 2010 is best to work on transitions and changes before the coming of the Cardinal Cross transits from July through September 2010. Use February through late June 2010 to take action on new opportunities that will come swiftly with Jupiter's transit. Be aware of the need to be ready to identify opportunities and take action not later than late June, early July 2010.
November 18, 2010 through August 29, 2011: After stationing direct in mid-November 2010, Jupiter races through tropical Aries, and by early June 2011, will have entered Taurus, before stationing retrograde at 10-Taurus on August 29, 2011.
From the time Jupiter turns direct in November 2010 to late August 2011, Jupiter will again be moving rapidly across the skies. This is another excellent time to make good on opportunities and to complete projects, transitions and changes started in early 2010.
The astrological year of March 2010 to March 2011 truly is a time of great shifts, transitions and changes for billions of people worldwide.
Understanding how to navigate this special year will determine, in large part, how the following years to the middle of the decade will succeed or not on many levels. Therefore, use the time now through to mid-April 2010 to outline how one will use this year to make way into the new decade just ahead.
