In my March 2012 Vernal Equinox special edition we explore the news, trends and forecasts through the lens of Mundane Astrology.
~ Presage For 2012 ~
Diligence is the mother of good fortune.
"He that walks with wise men shall be wise, but a companion of fools shall be destroyed." - Proverbs 13:20
Consider the sad events that took the life of the American teenager below.
The gated community of Retreat of Twin Lakes in Sanford, Florida, had been experiencing some petty burglaries. A 28-year-old man named George Zimmerman volunteered to head up a neighborhood watch.
As of March 20, 2012, Zimmerman has not yet been arrested or charged but transits show that the U.S. Justice Department is sure to look into the Martin killing as a hate crime in the days to come.
At only 17 he had a bright future ahead of him with dreams of attending college and becoming an aviation mechanic. Now that’s all gone.
After public pressure forced the city of Sanford to play the tapes for Martin's family, the city also released the audio recordings. See a full transcript of George Zimmerman's initial police call here.

New Astrological Year:
The Sun's position here - from a climate and seismic perspective - is powerfully highlighted.
The position of Mercury retrograde and Uranus in Aries also features electrical storms with high blasting winds and spreading drought. For more, see my astrometeorological long-range climate forecast further in this edition of Global Astrology.
When this occurs near the vernal equinox, we can expect increased levels of seismic and climate activity featuring large magnitude earthquakes, wind storms, flash floods, wildfires, tornadoes and volcanic eruptions. Look for powerful geophysical activity during March, April, May and June.
It is important to be patient and mind our emotions and actions under the celestial influences at this time of year. Those who are borderline usually act out irrationally near the vernal equinox.
Generally speaking, it is an unfavorable year for extended travel and for visitors in foreign nations. Accidents in the air, on and over the high seas are highlighted in 2012 by transiting planets in the tropical sign of Gemini.
Caution is urged for those planning to travel to oversea locations.
The Earth has been in its most recent global warming phase since 1980. I have forecasted that our present global warming regime - a total of 36 years - will end in about 2016-17.
Back in 2006, when I predicted the coming of El Nino in 2009 to be followed by La Nina, the majority of the world's climatologists did not believe me. Yet, when El Nino arrived in mid-2009, many still did not want to believe that La Nina would immediately follow as I forecasted.
La Nina indeed arrived - on time - in late 2010. I forecasted La Nina would wane in late 2011 and be entirely gone by early winter 2012. La Nina is now officially over.
A rising Neptune in tropical Pisces signals thick fogs overnight into mid-morning along seaboards, including along the mid-Atlantic and northeastern states. These can become heavier fogs when the Moon is below the horizon and lowers the atmospheric tides. Be keen on fog during the early spring months as these can be quite dense fogs.
There are threats of sometimes sudden and heavy downpours, gusting winds producing flash floods in the Southwest and Southeast, including the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana.
Wildfires along the east coast will extend from New York State to Florida. The warm and dry winter along with the above normal temperatures will cause Atlantic coast states to experience wildfires.
Of particular note will be fast moving electrical weather systems with high winds and downpours falling in arid regions causing wind damage and sudden floods.
