I continue to warn those of their wickedness in this world; for these evil acts have consequences for their souls.
We all are being watched by the Immortal God - very carefully - from above - as always.
This edition focuses in-depth on how world transits impact our world. We focus in this edition on the global economies of scale of many nations.
You will find this edition of Global Astrology packed with astrological information I hope will be helpful and of use to the world public at large.
The global economic crisis - a deadly mix of debt-forced deflationary/inflationary spirals - sees worsening levels of poverty among populations and their nations weighed down by sovereign debt by a corrupted generational establishment that should receive exacting punishment for the crimes they have – and continue to – commit.
Despite who wins the next U.S. presidential election - know that by this time next year, in 2013, we will officially be in a great economic depression.
In brief, my rather gloomy world forecast:
Global double-digit unemployment worsens, leading into Great Depression
Trade Drought Fosters Export Glut
Climate/Weather Conditions To Worsen
An overheated Chinese economy leads to inflation with China's 'hard economic landing'
Corporations Cut Back Amid Major Business Slowdown
Stock Markets To See Steep Earnings Slide early in 2013
Continued disintegration of the European Union & the Euro currency
Deflation Leads to Inflation By mid-Twenty-Tens
Larger mass demonstrations worldwide demanding change of status quo
Hue-and-cry protests in many nations & widespread revolutionary sentiments
Multiple investigations of massive banking corruption
Increased social stresses & geopolitical upsets in various nations
Food price shocks, hunger & famine
At this time, it is my mundane advice for anyone reading this to be calm, cool and collected, but also to think ahead and see that the next several years will require common sense, teamwork, prudence and preparation.
Times are changing and world transits confirm my forecasts that there is a rough ride into the middle years of this decade. Things are about to go from bad to worse. That is the truth as I see it. I will not mislead anyone.
There are things we all can do to make things better, but it will also require telling the truth and facing those who have wrought the decline and distress upon the nations of the world.
The climate and weather events in the second half of 2012 will continue to make world news with powerful storms affecting millions of people.
So we must not turn away from the needy, but rather help one another. The transits of 2012-2013 show a great and widespread need for compassion, understanding, love and for extending helping hands to those in need.
We also must not allow those who have caused these crimes to get away Scott-free. Indeed, they all must be chased down, caught, bound, tried and then punished fully for their evil acts.
Yet, repeatedly, I used my measure - the science of advanced astrology - and I saw no 'recovery' whatsoever in my astrological analysis of the global economic situation.
I also remind all that we have the power within ourselves to make the world a better place than it is now. Remember that it is within our power to fight against the dark forces that weigh the world down in ignorance, hate, evil and greed. The transits of the universe will work with you - if you know how to work with it.

The global 'change' is mainly generational, but also ideological in the sense that two generations are now passing as two new generations rise.
The era we are currently in is a 'transitional era' fraught with corruption, bloodshed, murder, cultural dysfunction, societal stress, international maladministration and evil.
The autumn months open the second half of the year 2012. The significant transits of October, November to the winter solstice of mid-December 2012 features the second act of the cardinal crisis years.
The last time Uranus, a planet of sudden shocks, surprises and revolutionary sentiments, was in tropical Aries was in the 1930s. Uranus in this Sign signals sharp reversals of fortune that can easily shatter what was considered to be unbreakable. The early 1930s also marked the last time Uranus in Aries was square to Pluto.
By May 2013, when transiting Jupiter will be at 20-21 degrees of tropical Gemini, and still in detriment, we will also see the 9 May 2013 solar eclipse in Taurus, where Jupiter transits sidereally. This affects banks, finances, money, economics. People must remember the illusion that many big banks worldwide are solvent - when many clearly are not.
The eclipse is followed on 25 May 2013 by a lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. Both Uranus and Pluto engage in their third exact world square on 20 May 2013.
So we can expect to see sharp market shifts just as Uranus transits in the sector of stock world markets and as Pluto in Capricorn represents interest groups attempting to maintain the illusory status quo.
The key to successfully navigate autumn 2012 in the northern hemisphere and the spring season in the southern hemisphere is to create change by acts of common sense and extensive planning.
One of the problems over the last two decades has been that society has been seriously fractured by cultural/religious extremist reactionary ideology its wars that have no value other than to disrupt and destroy future progress.
Personal and professional association with partners will have either strengthened or become weaker over the two-and-one-half years Saturn has been in tropical Libra.
Now that Saturn enters Scorpio, those personal/professional relationships that have not improved must end so that one of the partners can move forward as the other stagnates.
Saturn's peregrine transit in Scorpio to the year 2015 causes a 'fixation' on matters of the mundane eighth house. More on that below.

Manhattan, New York
Saturn will transit among the stars of Scorpius and the constellation Ophiuchus until September 2015. A peregrine transit, Saturn's energies will be channeled by Scorpio's ruler, the lesser malefic, Mars.
Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is Kronos, the planetary ruler of physical time. As Saturn leaves tropical Libra and enters Scorpio populations can easily feel the change in world atmosphere. Things cannot remain as they are as economic and social systems is seriously out of balance.
Saturn's very nature is to encourage 'economy' and 'want' and its inclinations for 'limitation' and 'restriction' are powerful when it comes to any fears of change. Taking risks, as far as the outgoing establishment is concerned, means that the obvious appearance of change is considered far worse than in keeping the status quo.
The inclinations of Saturn, which 'wanders' by peregrine transit from 0-27 degrees of Scorpio, will channel its power through Mars through to the year 2015.
This means that the transpersonal, or wider power of Saturn, is applied by Mars, the ruler of Scorpio, into the lives of others over the next three years. The best way to deal with Mars is to avoid inclinations of hostility as Mars is a violent planet that seeks to express its own nature by means of hostile acts.
The transits of Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune in October 2012 indicates powerful weather events where a full storm moon at 6-Taurus on Oct. 29, 2012 shows very stormy weather for the eastern U.S. coast.
We see this presaged in the Fourth House of the Manhattan, New York chart above; where 24 days before the arrival of the full storm moon in Taurus, at the time of Saturn's entry into Scorpio on Oct. 5; we find the Moon and Jupiter conjoined in the climate Sign of Gemini - another significator of stormy and very windy weather affecting millions of people.
With this in mind, the early days of the month of October 2012 is best used to prepare - for the following year of 2013 will be very challenging in light of my forecast for a worldwide economic depression.
In fact, the economic depression has already started, but those in positions of power would like you to think otherwise as they work to keep the illusion of 'recovery' alive for their own vested purposes.
Know that by 2013, the entire globe will be in a powerful deflationary climate with threats of monetary inflation to come by the middle years of this decade.
Times are about to change even more.
By early winter 2013, populations in the northern hemisphere will see more of Jupiter because the planet will appear rising in the east just as the Sun sets in the west.
You live in an era where the attention spans of many people have been reduced to that of a fly.
If you are able to FOCUS as you read these long, but critical entries in this edition, then you are bound to wake up. And in waking up, you will be free to actually think - critically - about the people and the world all around you.
The effects of Jupiter's Perijove - its closeness to the Earth - with Jupiter also retrograde, increases the magnetic tonality of its influence.
Distractions from others - usually by means of communication devices (Gemini) = another form of addiction - causes disruptions that confuse, cloud and clog the ability to concentrate and think clearly.
Treat cell phones, texting and social media technologies as tools; as you leave devices behind as you walk and enjoy nature helps. Spending 'get real' time with yourself and others also helps to remove addiction to technological devices that interrupt, disrupt and distract.
This allows for the mind to clear so that you are able to concentrate on more important matters which require critical thinking and your keen attention. Your mind is a terrible thing to waste.
'Funny Money' Business In High Places?

Both planets, Jupiter and Neptune, have been operating out of a 13-year phase that started in May 2009 but was felt the year before as it approached.
Consider the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) - the main index of trade overseas between nations by freight measure that shows the health of global trade.
The misinformation around the BDI is used by those who try to hide the truth of how international trade continues to shrink precipitously. This is common behavior with Jupiter in detriment in Gemini.
Theodore White, mundane Astrolog.Sci
The structures of many parts of the world have been corrupted and are in decline. This requires fresh and hopeful visionaries, but not under the generational establishment that helped to bring the decline about.
We are in serious need of new positive leadership with a healthy framework to build out from the poisonous cultural, ideological and geopolitical wars of the past 43 years.
While all sectors of society experienced a decline in income, the middle class is the only sector - the biggest one - that also got smaller. The middle class shrank in size from 61 per cent of adults in 1971 to 51 per cent in 2011.
Major Slowdown Ahead In 2013
My astrological analysis shows a major business and corporate slowdown ahead in 2013.
The combination of planetary transits amid economic trends clearly indicates that tens of thousands of people will be laid off in light of the global economic slowdown. Moreover, additional municipalities will be forced to file for bankruptcy as pension demands drain city coffers.
This is typical of Jupiter's position in tropical Gemini. Moreover, the overall phase of Jupiter's square Neptune in summer 2012 signaled that inflation in the medium-to-long term is a greater risk than deflation.
While the boomer establishment has been trying to not deal with the 'downside' of facing insolvency of its biggest banks and companies, what central bankers have done is to flood the world with cheap money to fight deflation.
Under Jupiter's transit in Gemini, the continuation of this experiment means that the world could easily face hyper-inflation by 2015-2016.
Under Jupiter's detriment in Gemini the tendency to talk too much, to gossip with much of the talk superficial and useless while wasting valuable time for the future.
The combination of the cardinal crisis transits of the Twenty-Tens as we enter the second half of 2012 and head towards the middle years of this decade can being about so breaking news with so much information that it easily can race around the world causing geopolitical disruptions.
The outer planets, as they operate in this crisis mode really can shake things up.
Global boundaries by means of debt spread as it dissolves via Jupiter and Neptune while Uranus in Aries is a shocking wildcard player that can force events.
Cold-blooded Pluto acts as the criminal kingpins - the ruler of debt - while Capricorn depicts these unyielding effect on society's structures - public and private.
Now, we delve even further to examine the cardinal crisis years, the demise of the aged global economy and its impact on populations worldwide.
2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016
Global Forecast By
The mundane chart you see above is a world transit chart for Spring 2014 - a Grand Cardinal Cross that means serious business.
What I saw did not make me happy in the least.
I issued my warnings issued on the Internet in late 2005 and early 2006 to great criticism of being a 'gloom and doom' forecaster - which I am not.
Again, the central banks are kicking the can down the road to Generation X and Generation Y - effectively forcing the debts of the Baby Boomers onto two new generations that have had little to no say in the matter.
Rather, the economic contraction will continue onwards into 2013 and will significantly worsen fiscal conditions and the liquidity of banking system.
Double-Digit Unemployment - this is actually the key to it all. The capital markets need to be liberalized to increase the velocity of money and free up credit. The only way that happens is by labor - that is jobs. The baby boomers are too old and are not the future of the world's economies. Old people don't spend money.
Young people do.
It is the young who are the future in order for the world economy to return to health. And for that to happen money must get liquid. The only way out of the global economic crisis is for the markets to be liberalized so people can get back to work.
In the 1980s, this rising income inequality, along with the ballooning CEO pay, continued into the 1990s and 2000s as the wealthy received ever lower tax rates that allowed executives and their minions to keep incredible levels of pay and then send it out of the country into offshore tax havens.
They then turned that into a massive deficit.
They took an American budget that was on track to actually eliminate a national debt and instead the boomer elite added $5 trillion to it - in a little over eight years.
The boomers are busting the entire U.S. economy and the economies of other nations. All to serve themselves in the present by leasing BMWs and living high on the hog to feel 'rich' - of course, at the expense of all non-boomers - including their own spawn, that's their own children.
How's that for 'groovy, man?'
Moreover, the so-called 'recovery' in jobs has only benefited those above the age of 55 - the baby boomer generation, as there were no baby boomers born in the 1960s - despite boomer statistical lies to the contrary.
The hypocrisy of this is hard to believe to - but it is happening.
2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016
Investors who hold stakes in banks and in their wealth management and financial services want lower risk; but boomer shareholders and pensioners still demand higher returns and yields despite knowing that the economy is very weak and that the markets cannot support their greed and illogical desires of immediate high rate of returns.
In effect, they have been standing over seeds demanding for the seedlings to grow mature right away.
The actual U.S. unemployment rate is closer to Great Depression levels - that's 23% - much higher than the officially reported 8-percent.

The mundane chart above shows the Grand Cardinal Cross of 2014. Below are some of the keywords of the major planetary players working in combination - at the same time - which makes these energies very powerful and dangerous.
Autocratic promotion & attempts to reform others while neglecting one's own problems; coercion in the name of ideology, religion, causing social breakdowns; fraud and deception in financial dealings; conflicts over corporate position, money; ideological and nationalistic power struggles
Jupiter in Cancer square Uranus in Aries
Financial corruption; difficulties in long journeys and with foreigners; wanting freedom without responsibility; unrealistic attitudes; eccentric, unreliable people about; impractical idealism, lack of prudence, poor organization & discipline; disturbing religious/cultural ideologies; association with cults & organizations of dubious nature; unwise financial partnerships; get-rich-quick schemes, cons, financial frauds, losses in corporate business enterprises; ill-considered investments; business failures.
Mars in Libra square Jupiter in Cancer
Narrow-minded and fanatical viewpoints; proselytizing by aggressive religious groups; inflated sense of importance; unethical business profiteering; misdirected energies; civil wars in foreign lands and trouble with foreigners; difficulties with long-distance commerce; unfavorable time to start new initiatives; physical risks lead to accidents & deaths; dangers while traveling.
Drastic changes in national emergency situations; outbursts of tempers during negotiations and diplomatic sessions; emotional, physical & nervous stress reaching boiling points amid conflict and rash actions; impulsiveness, impatience cause hardships in reaching goals & objectives; difficulties in economic matters, business & corporate affairs, insurance, technology and engineering sectors; caution in use of machines, electricity, explosives, firearms; vehicles.
Aggressiveness, anger, attempts to force others; danger of death in situations of gang wars, criminal street battles, in wars, revolution, natural disasters; others subject to evil domineering, dictatorial persons and organizations, criminal drug cartels, repressive governments; sexual violence and jealousies; power struggles involving money, position, political, professional and military affairs are likely.
Revolutionary sentiments with desire to overthrow existing power structures; unexpected financial losses; abrupt end to organizational ties; assassinations; people meaningful may die suddenly and unexpectedly; perilous and dangerous contacts; lives changed by large-scale forces beyond the individual's control; riots, radical groups and organizations; coups against governments; unfavorable for crowds and crowd control.
The Uranus-Pluto square revolves worldwide - lasting overall from 2012 to 2018. This cardinal synod has an amazing seven (7) exact squares between them in short span of time - a three-year period:
Regular people group together to fight back and are quite persistent about it. Torches, hound dogs and pitch forks. Even the most hardened criminals fear an angry community seeking vigilante justice. On a national scale - it is called a revolution.
Criminal organizations and repressive governments would be wise to truly fear the minds of unified communities bent on justice. Under a Uranus-Pluto square, people easily are able to form into mass groups to protest and challenge what they see as evil power structures. Think of the end of 'Frankenstein' for a picture of what that looks like.
By 2014, what is happening globally is that the economic, ideological, religious, social and geopolitical pressures form into an explosive brew which requires outlet of expression - as cardinal signs are prone to do.
The best way to cure these powerful cardinal transits is for calm heads to prevail, but those calm heads cannot be the same reactionary and ideological heads that have led the world into the mess it is now in. A change in establishment is necessary in order to forestall what is surely coming down the road in 2014.
The markets that have been controlled by the former 'peace and love' generation are highly restrictive, exclusive and protectionist to a major fault.
The fact of the matter is that the markets are not liberalized which is why unemployment rates are so high for anyone under the age of 55 and especially for youth - who have the highest rates of unemployment in the world.
That is why tens of millions of youth are unhappy, protesting and ready to set the streets on fire. Under the influences of the cardinal world transits - especially Uranus square Pluto - it is to be expected.
The 'Euro-zone' experiment has nearly reached its end-game as 2013 nears.
From public debt to private debt to sovereign debt - the generational establishment that has been ‘kicking the can down the road’ eventually is about to see that road come to an end.
Wait until my prior forecast on Germany's economy begins to show signs of validation. Germany depends on exports and has been one of the only European nations so far to be in a position of strength when it comes to the Euro and Germany's economy.
But not for long.
The cardinal crisis years impacts the trade that Germany depends on. That is the real strength of Germany's economy - exports. But when there is a severe economic crisis in the U.S. and China and with European nations suffering under the heavy weight of sovereign bank debt with double-digit unemployment; then you will see how the falling export number in Germany start to seriously worry German society.
Once that begins, and it really already has, then consumer demand in Germany also gets hit and Germany enters onto the long list of nations in an economic crisis.
All economies of scale have struggled mightily since my forecast of the economic crisis. My forecast on China is also being validated. Corporations that thought consumer orders from countries like China, India and Brazil would save them are in for a big surprise.
More troubling still is what this suggests about the third quarter. Little has surfaced to point to a pick-up, meaning that it’s unlikely the economy will grow much more than before.
Economists had predicted a 0.2% increase in core orders. It adds up to “suggest restrained investment spending beyond just a short lull,” says Citi’s Steven Wieting.
It is time for them to retire.
And, at the end of this establishment, we all can easily witness the result - economic, religious, societal and philosophical decline.
What anyone who has been paying close attention to the global economic crisis will notice - especially what is happening in Europe - is the debt creditor's - in the form of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European Commission (EC) - have been forcing nations in the European Union to destroy their own nations by paying off 'debt' accumulated in Euros after these nations gave up their own sovereign currency in 1999.
The sovereign debt repayment is basically a form of international loan-sharking tactics that demands severe cuts - called austerity measures - that have led to extreme levels of unemployment; especially for those under the age of 50 - and rising poverty - a recipe for overwhelming anger, empty stomachs, social decay and ultimately revolutionary sentiments.
Think on this.
After all those banks did to get themselves insolvent, that is broke - and then how they were 'bailed out' in 2008-2009 - and then restricted loans and ruined the credit and lives of tens of millions of American middle class after being saved by them?
Do you think that the American public is going to let that generational elite establishment running the banks and Wall Street to simply slide off into the sunset so easily under the cardinal crisis world transits?
Essentially, the too-big-to-fails were warned they would receive no more 'free money?
Let's look at the economic disasters facing some of the countries of the European Union as well as the United States.
Recently it has been reported that there was growing concern over Greece’s ability to continue providing electricity and natural gas to its citizens as the nation's insolvency continues.
All the signs surely show Portugal to be heading down into the same fierce economic spiral as Greece and Spain while debt-enslaved deflation kills the finances of the nation. Portugal's total debt level is over 360% of GDP and its international investment position is over 90% of GDP - that means that it is deep in the red.
The only way out is to leave the monetary union, the Euro, and for those nations to restore their own sovereignty by liberalizing their own economies.
Theodore White, mundane Astrolog.Sci
By altering the economies of nations over the past two decades by means of debt - featuring widespread corruption, graft, legislative/political/corporate 'capture' to enrich themselves, gorging on resources and blowing all the money - the boomer generation has effectively ruined much of the world.
After placing the bulk of their own money into real estate bubbles and as they gambled away the rest on the markets; the majority of the boomer generation are now holding onto their jobs and pensions for dear life.
Because of their false belief that they were the 'youth generation' and were going to 'live forever' they are part of a consumerist/materialistic generation that only believes life to improve for them. The bigger the bubbles, the better
The incredible run-up in house prices dwarfed the true value of properties along with boomers using home equities schemes to spend wildly on 'living large' which they did in massive numbers.
Since they are comfortable with debt and in denial about aging, many boomers believe that they will carry their debt into eternity since they will never die.
How dare we!
Include measures that might actually spur badly needed growth in the tough times now surely coming, like cuts in capital gains and corporate taxes? Leave the room!
It has set the wrecking ball to institutions that are the essential glue of our society (marriage and the family), the basis of our political system (federalism and the separation of powers), the engine of our prosperity (the free market), the guarantor of our freedom (the military), and the glory of our history (the Constitution, participatory democracy). (The Great Boomer Comeuppance)
Baby Boomer math: 40 is the new 30, or 20 and 60 is the new 40 and 70 is the new 50 and so on and so on...
Flash forward four or five decades, a couple of hundred pounds, the odd organ transplant, random arrests and jail stints, and the only garden David Crosby is getting back to is the Olive Garden with its unlimited pasta bowls and bread-sticks. What small parts of American life and power the boomers don't yet run they will soon enough.
The important thing: Youth is no longer to be wasted on the young.
They know they're going to need younger people to change their diapers and pay their bills for them, literally and figuratively.
Because the fact of the matter is that between 1984 and 2011, the only households that did well are those headed by people 55 years or older - that's baby boomers.

That's despite the actuarial reality that the older group costs insurers six times as much. So you're helping balance the books there, too.
Welcome to community rating, kids
Even before the Great Recession, the feds were spending like a drunken sailor (no disrespect to drunken sailors).
You can tell yourself that this is all part of living in a society, that's it for the common good, that there's simply no way a class of people with only 45 times the amount of household income as you do can get by without you sacrificing so much. But you're kidding yourself, kiddo.
We can help the truly needy among us without creating a system in which young people's already small incomes and savings are reduced further to prop up the relatively plush living standards of older Americans
One of the things I knew was that the hue-and-cries and mass demonstrations I saw coming on the horizon with the configurations of the outer planets relative to Earth would magnify.
Nowhere on earth is the generational class warfare, neglect and repression from Europe's aged baby boomer establishment towards non-boomers more crystal clear than it is in the nation of Spain.

This lack of social structure and value system invariably yields a significant growth in crime.
Get ready for very little in the way of baby boomer ideology and much of a "get your ass over there and clean up that mess you made," attitude from Generation X.
And when it comes to the American and global economy, here's more of why Generation X has to take names and kick ass.
Generation X, along with Generation Y (1981-1995) will have to clean up plenty of messes worldwide to return common sense and balance out of the ideological chaos, economic depression and social decline brought on by the outgoing baby boomer establishment and their parents.
The world will need all hands on deck and plenty of prayers for years to come.
