Signs Of The Coming Uranus-Pluto World Squares: Autumn 2011, Manhattan, New York City, U.S.A., Wall Street Financial District. Do not say that the priori science of Mundane Astrology did not warn the powers that be - far in advance - of what inclinations are to come by means of the transits of the stars and planets relative to the Earth.
Forewarned is foretold.

"I said left, no go right, stop, no, not that way, go here, yeah that's the ticket... Oh no, not good, can't trust them, can't trust their balance sheets... fuzzy math... it's all ponzi lies and shit... the wealth managers all scratch their heads. They don't know what to do. Can't manage the money. Let's split dude. Whoa, that was close. How about over there? Yeah, that looks good. Come on! Let's hedge our bets. Into those stocks? Those bonds?
What do you think? Assets safe here? Hey wait a minute, let's pull out, sell, then we buy this, go into metals and into ETFs and buy lots of shit... park our money. We'll be safe. Will it work? What do you think? Hey! You there! Hey buddy! Where do you think you're going with that 20 billion in cash there feller?!"
Better Watch Those ETFs
Stranger still... go right ahead, be my guest, knock your socks off and try to figure out this next one...

A Mundane Review
The U.S. & Pakistan:
Allies Or Sworn Enemies?
This autumn 2011 edition will remain up during November as I work on a December edition that will contain further mundane forecasts of significant events to come in 2012.
For several years, I have warned about the series of powerful cardinal crisis transits that the world has been experiencing in diverse ways - especially by means of the strengthening Uranus-Pluto world squares.
For instance, the Bank Of England announces a massive quantitative easing in the United Kingdom to stave off what is being called the worst financial crisis since the 1930s.
I continue to say that we are living in historic times with rebellions, revolts and revolutionary sentiments against a plutocracy that has and continues to commit great financial crimes against populations.
These powerful astrological inclinations are global - as we are also witnessing in the United States.
World astrological transits never lie. They clearly reveal the climate and weather to come. I provide readers of Global Astrology with my mundane analysis lens and forecasts of what I and others see by means of the stellar and planetary transits relative to Earth.
Be forewarned investors, as there isn’t a lot of time to get your assets out of the hands of criminals who are destined for the perditions of Hades itself. You had better hurry to save your money.
Also examined is the health of Spanish banks - with more of Spain's savings institutions being shut down or merged into other banks.
The strange and deadly relationship between the United States and Pakistan is also explored as we ask: The U.S. & Pakistan: Allies or Sworn Enemies?
Generation Xers, those in America, grew up as small children learning about good manners and how to stand up for yourself - even when someone likes you.
I used to watch each episode of a late 1960s-early 1970s TV comedy-drama 'The Courtship of Eddie's Father,' (video below) all the time when I was a kid. This Sunday morning, I stayed in my pajamas and just enjoyed a reminder that the good days always lives with us.
Anyhow, I thought to share it with you before we get all serious and intense on the world and stuff... And yes, that tough little girl is none other than Gen Xer Jodie Foster - here on the small screen giving Eddie his 'licks.'
Gen X Schooling the Foolin'
Expect more of the same kinds of correction to come towards world policymakers, bankers and political pundits alike - coming to a neighborhood and nation near you - as Generation X starts to read out loud the riot act and lay down the laws of old school rules - to all the fools:

I wrote the following in July 2009 in my efforts to wake astrologers and non-astrologers alike to what I saw coming by means of the astronomical motions relative to the Earth.
How To Prepare For the Uranus-Pluto World Squares
July 2009 - In a little less than three years from now one of the most surprising series of outer planet square aspects between two transpersonal outer planets - Uranus and Pluto - will be in effect.
The coming Uranus/Pluto squares of the early-to-mid-2010s will be a challenge for everyone seeking to live their lives in a world which has changed radically since the start of the 21st century.
In less than two years, Uranus’ full entry into tropical Aries in March 2011 will signal a crossroads moment in world history. Uranus will have completed a cycle started in 1928 and will have crossed the Aries point on March 11/12, 2011 – opening up a totally new orbital cycle relative to the Earth.
Uranus will then begin an incredible series of multiple square aspects to Pluto in tropical Capricorn, during the years 2012 to 2015. The squares will affect the entire globe, even after 2015, as Uranus progresses further through Aries after 2015, and enters tropical Taurus for good by March 2019.
This Aries ingress of Uranus’ into tropical Aries has powerful effects on the world-at-large through restlessness, rebellions, revolts and an overall feeling among populations of the world that things must change.
Pluto's transit in Capricorn highlights power structures that are being forced to transform by means of phoenix or to completely fail.
We saw this occur in 2008-2011 with the failures of many companies, large and small; with the decline of political faith and the public's loss of confidence in badly-run institutions. This is Pluto's function as it transits slowly through the tropical sign of Capricorn.
The unconventional and suddenness of action subscribed to Uranus indicates that through tropical Aries – populations the world over will have had enough of attacks on their ways of life and will strike out to take back control over the direction of their lives, and their nations.
The changes will not be easy, but they can be for those who are willing to prepare before the first Uranus/Pluto square arrives in June 2012.
These global squares last overall from the years 2012 to 2018 – with an amazing seven (7) exact world squares between 2012 to 2015 that will revolve worldwide:
1. June 24, 2012 – first global square at 8-degrees Aries/Capricorn
2. September 19, 2012 – second square at 6-degrees Aries/Capricorn
3. May 20, 2013 – third square at 11-degrees Aries/Capricorn
4. November 1, 2013 – fourth square at 9-degrees Aries/Capricorn
5. April 21, 2014 – fifth square at 13-degrees Aries/Capricorn
6. December 15, 2014 – sixth square at 12-degrees Aries/Capricorn
7. March 16/17, 2015 – seventh square at 15-degrees Aries/Capricorn
Effects on the World-At-Large
Uranus/Pluto square to one another from Aries to Capricorn features radical and sometimes dramatic changes in how society functions, putting pressure on the basic objectives, desires, objectives, or goals of all groups, organizations and countries.
The frustrations will come from the Cardinal sign inclinations to start "anew" - but not being able to fully bring about changes fast enough to satisfy everyone.
This function of wanting to change, but being stymied for whatever reasons given, forces populations to react in headstrong (Aries) and forceful (Capricorn) manner, and encourages rebellious sentiments to quickly grow.
This can fester into open revolts - and in some cases - outright revolution.
Therefore, expect to hear stories of the lives of individuals being radically altered by larger forces beyond their personal control, which is typical of the inclinations of the two outer planets' effects on the mundane affairs of the world.
Expect these influences under the Uranus/Pluto Square:
* Popular Rebellions & Revolts
* Corporate and Governmental Power Struggles
* Sudden Financial Losses
* Revolutions in Various Nations
* Unexpected Deaths
* Break-ups of long-term friendships & associations
* Disturbing Psychic influences
* Dangerous and Violent People Looking For Trouble
How to Counter The Above Influences:
* Prepare Early in the years 2009, 2010, and 2011
* Ability to adjust by shifting Personal/Professional goals to meet the new challenges
* Forming associations with people of common, positive purpose
* Seeking new positive opportunities opened by the radical changes
* Avoid time wasters, lazy & unreliable people
* Shifting relationships to focus on building trust, love, and respect
* Be Tolerant, and apply conflict resolution techniques
* Avoid petty arguments
* Use Caution in Travel During 2012-2016
The effects on individual transits will occur mostly on the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn and will reflect the frustrations, and the needs to "re-start" one's life in the areas of home, career, along with personal and professional relationships.
These “shifts” in relationships – all of kinds –will be challenged by the strength of aspects between the planets Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto – in the major transitional years of 2010/2011 and then emerge from those years into the year 2012 - when the first of a series of squares between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn will redefine all kinds of personal and transpersonal relationships through to the mid-2015s.
Things to Do
One of the best ways to face challenges and radical changes is to expect them in advance. Many people who will have the most difficult time are those who are resistant to change and want things to remain as they have been for years.
With the world transits of 2009, 2010, 2011, and especially by 2012, 2013, and 2014 - things will not be the same. It will be a new global era.
Some of things to do prior to the years 2012-2016:
* Prepare Early, Think & Plan Ahead - Do not be lulled into thinking that there is plenty of time to prepare for the transits of 2010, 2011, and those of 2012-2015. It is closer than you think.
One of the reasons for Astrology is that it affords people the time and space to prepare, and to plan in advance, which can greatly reduce the negative effects of coming transits, while increasing the chances for success.
The longer lead time one has - the better prepared you will be in handling these global changes. Global is local and affects us all. Those people who are able to plan ahead in increments, and remain focused on these coming world transits will do the best.
* Get Yourself Emotionally & Mentally Ready for Change - This is easy to say, but hard to do for most people. The easiest way to start is to begin to take time with yourself first to think about what it is that you want to do in the next decade with your life, career and personal relationships.
Write down a list of pros & cons of any choices and decisions you see yourself having to make over the coming five years.
Talk with others who share your sense of changes on the horizon and make sure that these people are not surface-thinkers, or time wasters, but who are genuine people whom you can share your thoughts with about the changes you either know, feel, or have heard are coming in the world.
* Personal Astrological Transits - Have your personal natal and progressed transits looked at by professional astrologers. Because of the length of extended time the aspects between the outer transits of the planets will last relative to the Earth; it is essential to cover several years rather than a single year in your personal transits.
Take the time to have your own astrological reports started now, so you will have enough lead time to make adjustments before the onset of these transits.
Most of the Cardinal Crisis transits will form by summer 2010, and the beginning of the global emergency will start in October 2009 with the first Saturn-Pluto square that extends into mid-2010.
Knowing how you will be able to navigate through the years 2010-2016 will be very important to your success.
* Stay Calm & Cool Headed - One of the inclinations of a Uranus/Pluto square is for people to become very impulsive and hotheaded, and also to resist change by any means necessary.
There will be many people throughout the world who will react negatively based on their own stubbornness, ignorance, or vanity in denying what has become obvious.
Those who do best will not only have their eyes and minds open, but also those who have prepared in advance and are calm and cool headed during any kind of challenges.
In order to survive the coming strength of these outer planet placements be aware that they are very real, and avoid those who would rather stick their heads in the sand, and who allow themselves to be affected while not realizing that they are affected.
The coming world transits, especially the Uranus/Pluto Squares, will affect people in a wide variety of different ways, but will generally help to create an electrically-charged atmosphere between 2012-2015 overall.
The sense will be one of not knowing what the results will be of the world events. Some people will react better than others; while other people will be in a full state of denial and still others so angry that they will want to strike out at anyone because they are frustrated and lost.
One can be of help to people like this early on, by talking to them about how times are changing and helping others to see that it is necessary to begin to plan to make positive changes in their lives gradually.
Those who begin now will do much better than those who start later.

Theodore White, mundane Astrolog.S
The world may not end – but the public/personal 'worlds' of other people just might as 2012's events will certainly make things 'appear' that way. A healthy portion of the economic world we once knew is now on the verge of a great crash, according to my mundane forecast.
Even those who use non-astrological methods and have their eyes open can see the writing on the wall. I keep saying to people to prepare themselves. Here's another person who will tell you the same thing:
It is essential to prepare your minds and emotions for the years just ahead. It can be done and must be done in order to be of use to your family, your friends and to yourself before the economic calamity strikes full tilt - as it certainly shall do.
Most people will be scared and that is certainly a normal first reaction. However, there is positive fear and negative fear. A positive fear keeps a person on the ball and sharp while a negative fear freezes one - often into complacency and procrastination.
Therefore, know this:
The world transits of the span from October 2011 to January 2013 will feature very powerful events concerning the health of the economies of nations.
What is most important from October 2011 to August 2012 is to use the time to prepare yourselves for a quantum change in the way the economy functions because of the onset of the new great depression years.
Now, in the wake of the coming events of 2012-13 those bankers, economists, policymakers, industrialists and government officials will publicly declare their confidence in stocks, the markets and the banks and not to mention the ‘strong fundamentals’ of corporations.
These was supposed to be the years when the recession “officially ended,” but even conventional jobless rates were said to rise from 9.3 percent to 9.6 percent.
"One of the immediately obvious issues this brings up is that there is no relief in sight."
Analysts said poverty-related issues have relatively little hold on politicians in Washington D.C. but hoped the new figures would encourage the bipartisan super committee to avoid deficit cuts that would hurt the poor.

This means that most of the world’s economy, at least 60% of it, will deflate for years – caused directly by decades of widespread financial corruption, speculation and economic malfeasance on gigantic levels.
It will extend to late into the year 2016 – a period of deep economic depression of four (4) years and ten months.
That is my mundane forecast. It has not changed.
The signs have been with us for several years; however few saw these signs prior to 2005-06, at the height of the massive mortgage derivatives housing bubble.
The behind-the-scenes activities with Jupiter retrograde in Taurus by the central bankers led to the prices of gold and silver being driven down.
GOLD PRICES PLUNGE?
Spot gold is approaching a key support at the 200-day moving average of $1,526.58, while the Relative Strength Index was observed to drop below 30. This is considered an indicator that the market is oversold.
It also appears that as Jupiter was slowing to retrograde in tropical Taurus in late August 2011, that the move took place on August 23-24, as the Sun entered tropical Virgo.
Gold Chart for Week Of August 17-24, 2011.
European policymakers began working on new ways to stop fallout from Greece's near-bankruptcy from inflicting more damage on the world economy after stinging criticism for failing to stem the debt crisis.
It remains unclear exactly how.
Spot gold fell 8.6 percent in late September - its sharpest such drop in more than 28 years.
Holdings in the world's largest Gold-backed exchange-traded fund, SPDR Gold Trust, stood unchanged at a one-month high of 1,252.211 tons by Sept. 23, 2011.
The fact is that if the European Union had tried to seriously tackle their structural economic banking issues straight-away – even as late as early 2010 – then the Eurozone would not be in the mess that it is in now.
Double-digit unemployment with the burdening crisis of debt on individuals, groups, communities, municipalities, cities, states and nations must be solved by those who played no part in creating the great economic mess.
The real estate deflation continues. I expect at least another 30-40% drop on top of the 31% fall in housing prices since 2009.
By the time all is said and done, most markets will have seen housing values fall as much as 75% - an incredible number, but true nonetheless in the wake of the corrupt practices of the real estate players, appraisers, banks, and Wall Street.
The crash that arrives during the election year of 2012 will see housing prices fall another 25% in a single year with additional falls in 2013 with the bottom mostly reached by 2014.
The transit of Saturn in tropical Scorpio from October 2012 to September 2015 will cover much of the depth of austerity - economic and social depression - into the middle years of this decade. It is a time of intense life for many millions of people worldwide in the midst of generational transition and social fragmentation.
Their inspiration came when pro-democracy uprisings broke out in Egypt on January 25 and quickly spread to other countries.
"To do that, we needed something radical."
But, go right ahead. See for yourselves. Be my guest.
Companies that process mortgages said they were so overwhelmed with paperwork that they cut corners.
"We do not yet really know the full extent of the problem," Bair said in written remarks to the Senate Banking Committee. She and others have called for a comprehensive study on the extent of the fraudulent signatures in mortgage documents.
Analysts say it could top $20 billion.
Officials in at least four states say mortgage documents with suspect signatures have been filed with counties in recent months. The revelation led to calls for Congressional hearings.
And, when that history is written, it will not look kindly at all on both generations.
As a native Philadelphian, where we fought the American Revolution - and won - we Philadelphians know how to fight and we always fight hard. We know America. We know the pulse of the nation. That is the very nature of my beloved city.
So, it is not a surprise to witness, as Uranus and Pluto soon begin their first series of world squares next year, Americans saying that 'enough is enough.'
New York City Police Deputy Inspector Anthony V. Bologna
The baby boomer deputy inspector seems to enjoy using his pepper spray a lot. Here, Bologna is seen smiling as he attacks yet another young woman on the streets of Manhattan.
Why would you spray toxic pepper chemicals into the faces of young American women who have the right to demonstrate in public? In the country they own? On their own sidewalks?
It is reported that Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna also stands accused of false arrest and civil rights violations in a claim brought by a protester involved in the 2004 demonstrations at the Republican National Convention.
Alan Levine, a civil rights lawyer representing a protester at the 2004 event, told the Guardian that he filed an action against Bologna and another officer in 2007. The case is expected to be heard in 2012.
And that is exactly what is going to happen. Wait and see for yourself.
With double digit unemployment, a credit crisis, banks hiding and playing ‘funny money’ with the People’s money, the futures of children, stealing, taking and raking in bribes, massive 'bonuses' all the while destroying Middle Class wealth, etc., etc.
The Cardinal Crisis
Here Come The OWSers
By James Howard Kunstler
All last week across the media landscape, in pod, blog, flat-screen, and crunkly old newsprint columns, fatuous professional observers complained that the 'Occupy Wall Street' marchers "have no clear agenda" or "can't articulate their positions."
What impertinent horseshit. I saw a statement on one OWSer's sign that said it all:
$70,000 College Debt
$12,000 Medical Bills
Where's My Bailout?
What part of that is unclear to interlocutors of what we called 'the establishment,' back in the day?
That would be the day of the Vietnam War and the Aquarian Upsurge.
One difference being that in 1968 we at least had some solidarity in the older generation coming from figures of gravity like Senators Robert Kennedy (bumped off), Eugene McCarthy, J. William Fullbright, George McGovern, Rev Martin Luther King (bumped off), and even one US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark.
Today, the entire "establishment" is a clueless, hopeless blob of self-interested, craven opportunism. Even the arty fringe - the people who pretend to be an avant garde - are nothing but narcissistic self-branding operations masquerading as culture leaders.
The worst offender this past week was the prating empty vessel Nicholas Kristoff at The New York Times, who affected to offer the OWSers his own tidy agenda of nit-picky, arcane tax reforms (e.g. "Close the 'carried interest' and 'founders' stock' loopholes") and limp-dick banking regulations (e.g. "[move] ahead with Basel III capital requirements.")
David Plotz and his Gen X sidekicks at the Slate Political Podcast were equally mystified.
I have some heartier suggestions:
Bring the full weight of the RICO Act and the federal anti-fraud statutes down on Lloyd Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, Brian Moynihan, Angelo Mozilo - and a host of other impudent schmekels still at large in their world of Escalade limos and Gulfstream vistas.
Or, if that's just too difficult, how about a handy lamppost and about 40 feet of stout nylon cord?
It is cosmically ironic; of course, that the same generation of Boomer-hippies that ran in the streets and marched through the maze of service roads around the Pentagon has become a new "establishment," - more obtuse, feckless, greedy and mendacious than the one they battled with over 40 years ago.
I guess they just don't see that their time has come to get right with reality - or get shoved aside and trampled.
The essence of the OWSer's argument is pretty simple:
They've got a raw deal; somebody dealt them a bad hand; someone ran their society into a ditch and not a goddammed one of the older generation will set in motion the machinery to correct the situation - or even acknowledge it.
At the apex of this establishment is the Baby Boomer's moral trophy president: Barack Obama, whose election made the Boomers feel good about themselves - while they proceeded to loot the national treasury's accumulated capital and then reach forward a few generations to rob their legacy, too.
I haven't heard Nicholas Kristoff (or any of his colleagues at The New York Times) complain about Mr. Obama's stupendous inattention to the crimes of Wall Street, or to the dereliction of his proconsuls in the SEC and the Department of Justice. I'd at least send somebody to hold a mirror under Eric Holder's nostrils to see if he is actually alive.
For my money, the OWSers have plenty to yell about.
Apart from the crimes and turpitudes of their elders - the younger generation hasn't even been prepared for the massive change in reality that these times are heaving them into.
If it was me out there, I'd conclude that I'd better make up the future on my own, with no help from my parent's generation.
In fact, that future is rushing toward all of us so cold, hard, and fresh even in this autumn season that it might splatter the banking establishment - and the global economy - like a bug on a windshield.
The OWSers have a front row seat down there in lower Manhattan. The financial gangrene (thank you Zero Hedge) is not just seeping anymore; it's blowing through the arteries of the money underworld like fracking fluid.
The damage can't be contained. Let the Arabs have spring. The OWSers of America own the fall.
Rock on OWSers and don't let the "pigs" (as we used to call them) get you down.
This is totally unrelated to the creation of anything of real value and serves no valid social purpose.
Roosebeke added, "But you have to ask yourself at the moment, 'Is there a viable alternative?' At least in the short term, I don't think there is. So with a big stomachache, I would say, it was probably a good decision to make."
U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner
Director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde
Without those 8 billion Euros - Greece will run out of money to pay their October 2011 national wages and pensions.
The best part will be when they pay up to poach talent from the banks that they are bailing out. With Gardening leave in Europe it should take about 6 months before the first employee can start.
This is the measurement of the spreads between corporate bonds with A-ratings and government bond yields – such as that during the real estate boom bubble years of 2002 to 2006.
Markets even had the specter of a potential government shutdown to contend with after the House of Representatives defeated a bill Sept. 21, 2011 that would have funded federal operations past September 30; which was then extended into October 2011.
Economists fear that may spark a trade war - another threat to a once healthy world economy and yet another echo of the synodic cycle of the1930s.
Each reaction to a reaction creates a domino effect of yet more reactions down the line and so the problem gets worse - and larger - with each and every reactionary step to the crisis.
The time of the tired establishment, that of the baby boomers and the oligarchy has ended.
$TRANGE GOINGS ON...
The aim is to fend off worries that the banks could be weakened by their holdings of government bonds from Greece and other struggling European countries.
In September, transiting Mercury in Virgo continued its strong earth trine to Jupiter as global central bankers made their moves to shore up European banks who are in very deep trouble.
A Couple Of Billion Gone Up In $moke?
A week later it led to the resignation of the UBS Chief.
He resigned as the board grappled with the aftermath of the trading loss in Singapore, where members and executives convened for a meeting scheduled to coincide with the bank’s sponsorship of the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix.
Adoboli, who graduated with an honors degree in computer science from the University of Nottingham, was a director on the exchange-traded funds and Delta One desk. It is the same sort of group for which Mr. Kerviel worked for at France's Société Générale.
In one such area, index arbitrage, traders try to capitalize on slight differences in the price of stock indexes and index futures.
The Cardinal Crisis
Since beginning the process of restructuring the financial system, Spanish banks' balance sheets have been losing face with negative showings in 2007 and 2008.
The bodies were found in the accounts of billions of bad loans - unpaid or very high risk - resulting from the bursting of the housing bubble.

Although the Spanish government insists that there are no surprises and that the financial system is recapitalized and in recovery - with this background it is not surprising that there are still many who do not really finish.”
The U.S. Versus Pakistan
In late September 2011, the Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, said the ISI was supporting Taliban-allied Haqqani network of militants that Washington blames for recent attacks on the U.S. Embassy and NATO's headquarters in the Afghan capital, Kabul.
The finger pointing, in the final analysis, only works against all sides and is extremely counter-productive.
This, despite the presence of about 150,000 American and NATO troops. Terrorism, as well as narcotics production and its trade have skyrocketed in Afghanistan since the US-led occupation.
The nervousness, irritability and practiced behaviors of others are bent - under these inclinations - for violence against the innocent.
