Jesus Christ Discourses On the Great Dragon Of The Outer Darkness
"...Once again Satan will be bound, universal peace will be established among men, and the Church of Jesus Christ will be delivered from all tribulations, although the Philistines would like to mix in the honey of malice and their pestilent seduction.
This will be near the seventh millenary, when the sanctuary of Jesus Christ will no longer be trodden down by the infidels who come from "Aquilon" [the North]. The world will be approaching a great conflagration, although, according to my calculations in my prophecies, the course of time runs much further.
In the Epistle that some years ago I dedicated to my future spiritual son, Cesar Nostradamus, I declared some points openly enough, without presage. But here, Sire, are included several great and marvelous events which those to come after will see.
During this astrological supputation, harmonized with the Holy Scriptures, the persecution of the Ecclesiastical folk will have its origin in the power of the Kings of "Aquilon" [the North], united with the Easterners. This persecution will last for eleven years, or somewhat less, for then the chief King of "Aquilon" will fall.
Thereupon the same thing will occur in the South, where for the space of three years the Church people will be persecuted even more fiercely through the Apostatic seduction of one who will hold all the absolute power in the Church militant.
The whole people of God, the observer of his law, will be persecuted fiercely and such will be their affliction that the blood of the true Ecclesiastics will flow everywhere.
One of the horrible temporal Kings will be told by his adherents, as the ultimate in praise, that he has shed more of human blood of Innocent Ecclesiastics than anyone else could have spilled of wine.
This King will commit incredible crimes against the Church. Human blood will flow in the public streets and temples, like water after an impetuous rain, coloring the nearby rivers red with blood.
The ocean itself will be reddened by another naval battle, such that one king will say to another, Naval battles have caused the sea to blush.
Then, in this same year, and in those following, there will ensue the most horrible pestilence, made more stupendous by the famine which will have preceded it. Such great tribulations will never have occurred since the first foundation of the Christian Church. It will cover all Latin regions, and will leave traces in some countries of the Spanish.
Thereupon the third King of "Aquilon" [the North], hearing the lament of the people of his principal title, will raise a very mighty army and, defying the tradition of his predecessors, will put almost everything back in its proper place, and the great Vicar of the hood will be put back in his former state.
But desolated, and then abandoned by all, he will turn to find the Holy of Holies destroyed by paganism, and the old and new Testaments thrown out and burned.
After that Antichrist will be the infernal prince again, for the last time. All the Kingdoms of Christianity will tremble, even those of the infidels, for the space of twenty-five years.
Wars and battles will be more grievous and towns, cities, castles and all other edifices will be burned, desolated and destroyed, with great effusion of vestal blood, violations of married woman and widows, and sucking children dashed and broken against the walls of towns.
By means of Satan, Prince Infernal, so may evils will be committed that nearly all the world will find itself undone and desolated. Before these events, some rare birds will cry in the air: Hui, Hui [Today, today] and some time later will vanish.
After this has endured for a long time, there will be almost renewed another reign of Saturn, and golden age. Hearing the affliction of his people, God the Creator will command that Satan be cast into the depths of the bottomless pit, and bound there.
Then a universal peace will commence between God and man, and Satan will remain bound for around a thousand years, and then all unbound.
All these figures represent the just integration of Holy Scriptures with visible celestial bodies, namely, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and others conjoined, as can be seen at more length in some of the quatrains.
I would have calculated more profoundly and integrated them even further, Most Serene King, but for the fact that some given to censure would raise difficulties. Therefore I withdraw my pen and seek nocturnal repose."
~ Epistle to French King Henri II by mundane astrologer Michel Nostradamus, from Salon-de-Crau in Provence, France, 27 June 1558
Over the past several years, it also has been my intention to help people understand and to see the trends and changes that were to take place.
As a forecasting astrologer it is my duty to use my expertise in the best manner possible to forecast the atmosphere, trends and global climates to come by means of the priori-based science of Astrology.
We are now in the cardinal crisis decade. The challenges that exist for billions of people worldwide are substantial; given the complete and systemic failure in stewardship by a dying oligarchic generation and their disruptive baby boomer spawn over the last 44 years.
It has been my assessment that the years from 2012 to the early-to-mid 2020s will be a critical span of time with challenges and changes that could have been easily prevented if not for the mental illness and outright stupidity of this dying oligarchy and the elderly boomer elite establishment.
I have been warning of all this in my prior forecasts of world transits and their inclinations.
The configurations of the planetary bodies and stars relative to Earth over the next 9-10 years contain a dangerous transitional mix: economic crisis, conflicts, social unrest, street violence, revolutionary sentiments, civil upheaval along with natural and man-made disasters. These are presaged by planetary and stellar positions, their aspects, configurations and eclipses.

The Winter Solstice Chart of December 21, 2012
Theodore White, mundane Astrolog.Sci
The fated day that millions of people worldwide have been in expectation will have arrived on Friday, December 21, 2012. We examine my findings on the Mayan Calendar further in this edition of Global Astrology.
For now, let's look at the transits of the winter solstice of 2012.
Sun Enters Capricorn
Dec. 21, 2012
click on Winter Solstice 2012 Mundane Chart to enlarge
The rulers of the next three months are in this order - Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury.
The chart shows stress with electric Uranus in Aries positioned in the Fourth House along with the transiting Moon in Aries. The depositor of the Fourth House in Aries is Mars, which is transiting in tropical Capricorn and placed in the Second House of Finances in the winter ingress chart.
This speaks to the 'fiscal cliff' negotiations between the White House and Congress. It appears from the chart that a deal will be struck in the common new year to avoid the fiscal cliff - however; with Uranus in Aries in the Fourth, along with the Moon, the implications may be short-lived due to events overseas in Europe.
Moreover, the stresses from the recent violent year will have made the coming holiday season subdued going into the common new year of 2013. The Capricorn Sun in the winter solstice chart is perfecting to a square to Uranus in Aries.
This signifies a period of major re-adjustments to be made over the winter of 2013.
Circumstances in the lives of others can be disrupted by economic, political and cultural forces beyond the control of the individual. This shows that over the winter months of 2013 there will be inconsistent behaviors among some people which impacts social affairs and personal/professional relationships.
There can be inconsistent handling of children by adults under the influence of transits during the winter season. It is important to mind the emotional and physical care of children during the winter.
Under a cardinal Sun-Uranus square individuals can also display double-standards, where they demand freedom for themselves, but simultaneously expect others to adopt strictly to duty and responsibility.
The Sun-Uranus square during Winter 2013 indicates a need to avoid unreliable people, as friendships with eccentric and/or unstable people will not be in the individual's best interests.
Uranus' position in the Fourth House speaks to shifts in emotions. There is a strong desire to act in the personal sphere, affecting families, friends and personal relationships. Be mindful of unusual disruptions on the part of family members over the next three months.
The Moon's placement, along with Uranus in the fourth house can bring about quirky, eccentric attitudes and actions. The emotional involvement in domestic and family affairs has increased interactions with parents, children, and friends in the domestic environment.
Strong maternal instincts are increased with this placement of the Moon in Aries in the fourth house. However, remember that Uranus' inclinations can also lead to compulsive disorders with actions that are sometimes 'electric' and 'sudden.'
Business activities are favored in the home so the use of home to work on new projects can be positive throughout the winter season. The influences point to architecture, archeology, organic gardening, mining, as well as interests in precious metals and earth-related sciences.
Transiting Saturn's position in the 11th House of Scorpio in the winter solstice mundane chart reflects groups and organizations looking to repair damage. The sextile aspect from Saturn to transiting Pluto in Capricorn seeks to open up new opportunities but can also involve secrecy as part of deals.
Mercury rising in Sagittarius on the Ascendant of the mundane winter solstice chart shows an intelligent, but compromised attitude toward making progress toward accomplishment.
Mercury is in detriment in Sagittarius; so the inclinations show agitated, nervous demeanors with know-it-all attitudes interfering with work efficiencies and personal relationships.
Venus rises as 'morning star' at 6-Sagittarius of the solstice chart signifying behind-the-scenes business and social activities including secret romances and self-indulgence after a stressful year. Venus opposes Jupiter, still retrograde (until Jan. 30, 2013) in Gemini.
The Venus-Jupiter opposition applies by two degrees showing financial and emotional extravagance along with insincere gestures of friendliness and maudlin sentiments.
With this opposition there are elements of hypocrisy among people in cultural, educational and religious sectors showing that involvement over the winter season may not produce lasting results.
Therefore, a special need for cooperation is needed to avoid evasion of responsibilities and work over January, February and March 2013.
Jupiter's detriment transit in Gemini is found in the 6th House of the mundane winter solstice chart. There is a YOD-aspect point from Saturn and Pluto's sextile to Jupiter in Gemini.
The YOD signifies the need for much better employment numbers and expanded economic and job opportunities for the general public.
The stress aspects to Jupiter, retrograde in Gemini here shows that there is a tendency to laziness and taking too much for granted. Promises made but not kept.
There will not be much change in the overall economic and societal status-quo over the winter season in the northern hemisphere, but spring into summer the opportunities are much more improved. Therefore winter 2013 should be spent planning extensively the second half of 2013.
The detrimental position of Jupiter in Gemini and the violent-prone position of Uranus in Aries further proves out my prior warnings for people to mind themselves when in crowds due to the sickness of others who threaten and sometimes do perpetuate mass acts of violence.
Gatherings at malls, movie theaters and schools, among other sites where people and families are grouped together, can serve - under these unfavorable planetary transits - as dangerous places to be.
Jupiter will remain in detriment until late June 2013, but Uranus will transit in tropical Aries for another 5.5 years, so it is incumbent upon people to mind their surroundings when out in public or traveling.
People will tend to be short-sighted due to the influence of the 'me generation' establishment that wants everything 'now.' Expect opportunities to remain on the thin side over the winter season as the outgoing establishment of the baby boomer generation, along with their negative angst, begins to lift from the atmosphere in 2013.
The winter solstice chart shows a need for prudence, honesty and avoidance of those who waste valuable time. The season also calls for readjustment in how one views the world and for changes in personal lives that have been disrupted by forces outside of one's personal control.
Personal attitudes, negativity, short-sightedness, unreliable persons, short tempers, frustrations and impulsiveness are to be strictly avoided over the next three months.
Be calm and aware of your thoughts and emotions. The exercise of forethought and patience works best as you steadily progress toward meeting your objectives and goals.
The best way to apply the months of January, February and March 2013 is to work toward making positive changes and adjustments of methodologies into the new astrological year, which officially begins in mid-March 2013.
The Winter of 2012-2013 therefore calls on individuals, families, friends, groups and organizations to weed out the outworn from their lives so as to position for the new opportunities that will present themselves with the Grand Water Trines of 2013. You can read my forecast on the grand water trines of 2013 further in this edition of Global Astrology.
Have a wonderful holiday season and remember to always think favorably of the well-being of others and to make plenty of room for compassion, love and forgiveness in your life.
My method, called astrometeorology, was further developed by Greek, Arab and Renaissance astrologers; including the astrologers Claudius Ptolemy, Al-Kindi, Tycho Brahe and Joannes Kepler. In the 17th century a major effort to test astronomic forecasting of weather was conducted by John Goad.
Goad discovered, to his amazement, that the Sun, Moon and planets did in fact correlate to climate and weather conditions of temperature, wind, precipitation and dry conditions. For instance, Goad proved that the cooling trends in specific regions between the geocentric alignments of the Sun and the planet Saturn were in fact true.
His hypothesis was supported by a number of tests that showed lower temperatures on the days when there were Sun-Saturn alignments that took place - especially when near the seasonal equinoxes - with astronomic causes in space forcing on biological life on earth by means of the climate.
The mechanics of what was discovered also showed that planetary modulations of the activity of the Sun along with the Moon's tidal forces on Earth's atmosphere proved that those who mastered the science and art of astrometeorology would be able to forecast the climate and weather.
The winter season doesn't really get going until January 10-11, 2013 and will effectively end over North America on March 24, 2013.
In astrometeorology, the fourth house of any seasonal climate chart has chief rule over the weather. This means that ½ of the total weather influence is judged from the fourth house.
In this, the most important factor is any planet in the fourth house or the Imum Coeli (IC.) The sign that the planet (s) are in and the aspects they make are first judged.
According to my findings, there will be snow in the country during the winter season, but with the presence of Uranus Aries in the Fourth House, along with the Moon in Aries, the winter season will range from below average to variable precipitation - with sudden extreme temperature ranges - from warmer-than-normal to colder-than-normal featuring strong winds and sudden temperature drops. This will be common over the 2012-2013 winter.
Mercury's position on the Ascendant of the solstice chart in Sagittarius tends to dry weather but denotes the winds. This is measured by longer duration and in trine aspect to Uranus in Aries there are sudden squalls at a higher velocity. A very windy and cold winter is on the way.
Venus is at 6-Sagittarius and is rising on the Ascendant in the winter solstice chart. When it comes to temperature Venus has a moderating influence. For instance, previous weather was hot, Venus tends to cool it but if the previous weather was cold, then Venus tends to warm things up.
Here, in the winter solstice 2012 chart Venus is on the Ascendant indicating temperature so there is a moderating influence of the cold temperatures of extremes of Uranus and the cooling effects of Mercury's winds however, Venus' position in the winter solstice chart strengthens the forecast for a windy winter.
Dates Of Winter Precipitation
Jan. 9 -11 snow
Feb. 7-9 - snow
The coldest temperature drops of this winter will occur in February 2013 with the heaviest snows coming late in the season just in time for the Full Snow, or Full Hunger Moon which I have calculated will begin on February 25, 2015. Expect significant snowfall around February 25,26,27.
Astromet Advice For North American Farmers
The Midwest of the U.S will experience drier-than-normal climate conditions with less precipitation. What is indicated is a continuation of the extreme drought of 2012 into 2013.
Farmers are therefore advised to prepare for a windy, variable but drier than normal winter season with a warmer than normal spring season ahead. Mercury will transit Pisces overall from February 5 to April 14.
Unfavorable seed-planting period - from previous parched soil and soaking rains will be caused by the retrograde of Mercury in Pisces from February 23, 2013 to March 17, 2013. Seeds planted in the first three weeks of March will be lost because of poor soil nutrient conditions. Mercury will turn direct on March 17, 2013 and will then fully pass the degree of its prior retrograde on Feb. 23 by April 6, 2013.
Favorable seed-planting period begins - March 24, 2013 as Venus will head north by declination as it will have entered Aries two days earlier on March 22. Soil conditions will have improved enough ready for the New Aries Moon of April 10, 2013, the First Quarter Cancer Moon of April 18, the Full Worm Moon of April 25 and the Last Quarter Aquarius Moon of May 10, 2013.
This leads into yet another dry growing season featuring blazing spring and summer temperatures with less-than-normal precipitation. I'm afraid to say that another dry and parched growing season is just ahead.
December 21, 2012
Notable as that date is, December 21 marks the ingress of the Sun into tropical Capricorn. This marks the first day of winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern hemisphere.
It is estimated that the astrologically-based calendar system started counting at the year 3114 B.C., and will have run through 13 baktuns - this is 5,125 years - with the 13th Baktun ending on 21 December 2012.
The popularization of the Maya prophecies drowned out the advanced astrological scholarship that provided the key to understanding what the Maya mundane astrologers were saying about their own future and our own.
The speculation and greatly exaggerated claims of the 'end of the world' on December 21, 2012 obviously distresses people worldwide. It has given rise to uncertainty, fear and confusion which bemoans the fact just how poor education and knowledge of these matters have become embedded in our present time.
Here, in this edition of Global Astrology, I hope to explain what it is that I know so the average person, as well as those who have studied parts or all of the Mayan Long Count Astrological Calendar, are able to see for themselves the truths behind what the Maya mundane astrologers said about our entry into a new global era - what they called the 5th World Age.
A Brief History
Some believe that the Izapa were a transitional culture between the older Olmec civilization and the emerging Maya; others believe that the Izapa were Olmecs.
Most of the dates refer to local events, like the crowning of a specific king, but some of the Long Count monuments refer to mythological events that occurred at the beginning of the current “World Age” an age that we are currently experiencing.
The Long Count's "zero date" was set at a point in the past, marking the end of the third world age and the beginning of the 4th world age, that, according to my calculations, corresponds to 11 August 3114 BC using the Gregorian calendar.
Many mayanologists use the date of August 11, 3114 BC. However, it about is 26 days before September 6, 3114 BC. The difference comes about because the astrological calendar is different than the calendar archaeologists have used.
Most who have studied the Maya culture have a very limited knowledge of astrological dating. What is important to know is that the Maya Long Count Calendar is a direct measurement between Earth's daily cycles and the precessional cycles of the constellations and planets.
In astrological terms, the Maya long count calendar defines the astronomic cycles of the heavens applying the phenomena of the zenith's passing a celestial object. In mundane astrology - precession - the divergence of the sidereal and tropical zodiacs - is known as 'the precession of the equinoxes.'
The tropical and sidereal zodiacs met in the year 221 AD and move at a rate of one degree every 71.5 years because the tropical zodiac's starting point retrogrades, that's observable 'backward' movement from a view on Earth by means of the ecliptic. This is the precession of the equinoxes.
The Maya dated it as 126.96.36.199.0 - that is a day, month and year which corresponds, by the Gregorian calendar, to our present era - 21 December 2012.
On that day, our Sun will enter 00-Capricorn. This is start of the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere and the summer in the southern hemisphere.
According to the Maya astrologers, it also begins the transition years from the 4th World Age into the 5th World Age - or into that era of the Fifth Sun.
See here for more on the meaning of the 5th Sun in Mayan Mythology.
So, this is where the popular culture 'end of the world' rumors had its genesis.
Over the following decades the misconception of the Mayan Long Count Astrological Calendar gradually began to make its way into the world's public consciousness.
American President John F. Kennedy announces the threat of the Cuban Nuclear Missile Crisis in a televised address to the nation in October 1962.
The angst of the world ballooned on the decline of education, knowledge and spirituality as the rationalist materialism of mainstream science failed to provide answers or comfort to a world increasingly in emotional, mental and spiritual distress.
However, since the year 1999-2000 we have been living in stressful and changing times.
The twin towers of the World Trade Center - September 11, 2001
The list of negative and shocking events under the baby boomer establishment years have been quite bad to say the least:
The events of the U.S. General Election of November 2000 were followed by the horrid crimes of September 11, 2001 that led to a sudden invasion of Afghanistan, then an invasion of Iraq.
All this surely added to the growing world angst.
We saw the Indonesian Tsunami of 2004 and then the world spun into the Global Economic Crisis by 2007-08. That caused even more world angst in 2009 and 2010.
Then in 2011, Japan's Fukushima Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disaster struck.
Fukushima Nuclear Plant Explodes into the atmosphere
Fukushima's nuclear radiation spreads across the Pacific Ocean to the western United States and Canada
The year 2011 also saw the geopolitical crises spread across North Africa, with uprisings and revolutions in Tunisia, Bahrain, Yemen, Egypt and Libya.
Protest in Tunisia
We saw the Occupy Worldwide Movement with its economic/social upheaval in the United States and riots in Great Britain.
We witnessed the bombing and mass slaughter of innocents in Norway.
We've witnessed mass incidents of senseless violence: such as the recent mass shooting of schoolchildren and teachers at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School and the mass murders of men, women and children in Syria.
All this - and more - has produced surely enough angst and fear for just about everyone going into December 2012.
Their calendrical system ended with the fall of the Mayan civilization. Most of the remaining knowledge was destroyed by the Spanish during their conquest decades.
When I came across the Mayan Calendar, I was still a teenager. As part of my astrological studies, I took it upon myself to familiarize myself with their astrological calendar system as part of my ongoing climate and weather forecasting work.
What amazes rationalist scientists today is that besides having a concept of the number zero, the Maya mundane astrologers also had a firm grasp of modular arithmetic and variable mathematics which is part and parcel of astrological forecasting work. The Maya also worked extensively in base 20.
Now, it is these Baktuns that led to the rumors of an end-of-the-world catastrophe on Dec. 21, 2012 - for on that date, a cycle of 13 baktuns will have been completed.
December 21, 2012 is the end of the planetary grand cycle according to the Maya mundane astrologers. It is the end of the 13th Baktun and 13th Ahau - that is, a 5,200 year cycle that ends in our present lifetimes.
That date is regarded as an end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar.
Various astronomical alignments and numerological formula have been proposed as pertaining to this date, though none have been accepted by mainstream scholarship.
That Dec. 21, 2012 marks the beginning of a time where the Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation - and that 2012 marks the beginning of a new era.
Others suggested that the December 21, 2012 date marks the end of the world by a wild means of scenarios based on ignorance and fear as I mentioned earlier.
Professional Mayan scholars said that predictions of impending doom are not found in any of the extant classic Maya accounts, and that the idea that the Long Count calendar "ends the world" in 2012 misrepresents Maya history and culture.
This is only partially true, as we will shall see later.
Rationalists, atheists and those with their own personal issues on spirituality, religion and metaphysics are just as bad as the pop culture fringe.
Neither has a single clue as to what they are talking about when it comes to 'predictions,' since they obviously are ignorant of the history of prophecy. Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Some of the very same scientists; while rejecting the impact of celestial influences on the world then go right ahead - amazingly - to push fear-mongering of another flavor - the complete fantasy of "man-made global warming" - which, by the way, violates the very laws of physics that govern the Earth's climate.
So go figure.
Rather, Dec. 21, 2012 marks the end of a world age.
The Maya long count astrological calendar announces this new age - and we are all about to enter straight into it.
And the calendar encompasses much larger units than the Mayan B'ak'tun
Their writing system has been deciphered. This means that a corpus of their written and inscribed material has survived before the European conquest.
It kept time roughly in units of 20 - as 20 days made a Uinal and where 18 uinals (360 days) made a Tun.
Twenty (20) Tuns made a K'atun, and 20 K'atuns (144,000 days or roughly 394 years) made up a B'ak'tun.
The Long Count was principally used for mundane historical purposes, since it can define any date in the past and the future.
The Haab was a civil calendar based on a year of 360 days consisting of 18 periods of 20 days. Five days were added at the end of the Haab year to approximately synchronize it with the solar year.
The Tzolkin calendar went through a complete cycle every 260 days.
The significance of this cycle confuses non-astrologers, but as a professional astrologer I knew that it was directly connected to the orbit of Venus - which has a period of 263 days.
See Mundane astrologer William Stickevers on -> The Meaning Of the Mayan End Date Within The Context Of Modern Astrology.
The Haab and Tzolkin dates did not have a year component; however, a combined Haab and Tzolkin date specifies a unique day within a 52-year cycle.
Symbols of gods head the top of a particular cycle. Each cycle had its own patron deity that represented an 'age' or an 'era.'
And the deity that worried the Maya mundane astrologers the most was a dark deity who they said appears in the transition years between the 4th World Age - an era that ends on 21 December 2012 - into a new one: the Fifth World Age.
Nine Dark Years?
Theodore White, mundane Astrolog.Sci
It is translated into English as such:
I am very careful when viewing any visions so as not to misinterpret them, so I check everything carefully by the science and mathematics of Astrology.
It is by this very sure astronomic method that I either confirm or dispel that which I think I may know, or may not know of the future.
One of the key things to remember about an astrologer is how we view the natural world, which includes the heavens. The constellations and their component stars rise and move in a leftward turn as the planets move rightward against the grain of the stars.
In-between this motion an astrologer can 'read the future' seeing things in the same way as a film editor cutting a movie in time.
The divergence of the sidereal and tropical zodiacs is called the precession of the equinoxes, and it is by this means that mundane astrologers are able to forecast deep into the future. More on precession and the Maya calendar down below.
This is never by means of conjecture, nor by means of mere opinion or of popular 'new age' culture, but those prophecies that are only confirmed by the configurations of the planets and stars relative to the Earth.
That much I knew by my technical astrological analysis of world transits into the future from my long-range mundane work back in the 1980s and 1990s on the world transits of the early 21st century.
To me, the Mayan Long Count Calendar and references to 2012 are clearly about the planets of our solar system and the inclinations on us here, on Earth.
All are tied to the revolutions of the stars and planets - this is the unbroken rule I follow - that any and all prophecies must be confirmed by the configurations and positions of the stars and planets. That is the sure methodology.
The Maya mundane astrologers knew how to track the positions of the stars and planets as well as the precession of the equinoxes far into our own era and the positions and configurations of the winter solstice of December 21, 2012 are indeed special.
Maya Mystery Prophecy
What is known as Tortuguero Monument, was erected in 669 AD, apparently to simply commemorate a building known as a pibnaah that was built about160 years earlier, in the year 510 AD.
For non-scholars, a 'pibnaah' is translated as a kind of steam bath or a sweat-house.
The construction of a pibnaah at this prophecy site makes reference to a "something' event that is to occur at the end of the 13-baktun world era, that is by December 2012. A type of "darkness" that comes on the world by the descent of a negative god - his name is Bolon-Yokte K'uh.
The mystery of this Maya prophecy is that there is also damage to some of the prophetic glyphs.
But what I knew and focused on was that the Mayan mundane astrologers forecasted that a significant transitional era was to take place after 21 December 2012.
The Maya had discovered what the Egyptians had missed and that was that they did not know about the future conjunction of the winter solstice - the ingress of our Sun in tropical Capricorn on Dec. 21, 2012 - with the Galactic Center in sidereal Sagittarius and the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.
I made the connection from this to my own astrological forecasts that the 'cardinal crisis' years of the Twenty-Tens was to be a major transitional decade between one global era into another. The Maya astrologers had calculated this long before I was even a thought.
John Jenkins is his Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 writes that,
"... the Maya were apparently the Ancients who were clued into the conjunction of the December solstice Sun with the Milky Way and the Galactic Center as a precession-defined era of transformation for humanity.
Although the extreme meridian transits of Orion were most certainly interesting to ancient astronomers, the 2012 solstice-Galaxy alignment is a more compelling Zero Time of the precessional growth cycle. Why?
Because of the role played by the Galactic Center in the astronomical alignment of 2012. Since this specific idea is not found in the Egyptian material, yet is the highest expression of Maya cosmological science and universal precession wisdom, an Egyptian source of Maya knowledge, as some researchers believe, is not likely.
In other words, the Maya were on to something the Egyptians missed. The Maya tapped into an understanding of the cosmos that is beyond what the Egyptians accomplished - and they did it independently."
But I don't allow pop culture to interfere with my mundane work. I simply keep on working. Follow the thread and just see what is there and never presume anything - that's my rule.
A Dark & Dangerous Transitional World Era Ahead?
The Maya mundane astrologers used his name to mark the end of the 13th Baktun - a world age that ends with the winter solstice of 21 December 2012.
In my reading of British scholars Markus Eberl and Christian Prager, the prophecies related to Bolon Yokte K'uh are composed of the elements of "nine" - with the term 'OK-te' (a meaning said to be unknown) and "god."
However, the name Bolon Yokte' does appear in inscriptions from Palenque, Usumacinta and La Mar - and all of them depict Bolon Yokte' as a "god of war, conflict and as lords of the night or lords of the underworld."
In one image, Bolon Yokte' is portrayed with a rope tied around his neck and in another, holding what appears to some kind of incense bag. It is my contention that the incense bag holds a variety of diseases that are spread worldwide.
These images are significances of some kind of sacrifice to end a period - a cycle of years that leads to the start of another cycle of years. What is in-between are the dark transitional years.
Those events centered on the elements of fire, water and ice. They are associated with natural and man-made disasters caused by evil spirits running amok in the world, according to my findings.
It was headed straight for the Earth when the Hubble captured the image in January 2010:
In addition, the Tortuguero Monument 6 Prophecy reveals a descend of the Nine Support Gods (currently our interpretation of the nine celestial objects included in our solar system), which will be influenced by the driving force of the Sun.
But that 5th World Age is preceded by 9 transitional years.
Some people have made the assumption that there would be a kind of intergalactic alignment of our solar system and its central Sun to the Womb of our Galaxy - the Milky Way.
This so-called 'womb' is signified as a new beginning - that of the Fifth World Age by the time of our Sun's ingress into Capricorn.
On August 11, 3114 BC, a new Solar Age began and that the 'Lord of The Sun' was reborn. In these creation stories, these 'lord deities' always attend the rebirths of a new global age.
It is Bolon Yokte K'uh who is said to be present during this transition from one world age to another.
These are what the Maya astrologers called 'Creation Events.'
Called the Vessel of the Seven Lords - it represents our present 13th Baktun cycle which ends on 21 December 2012.
This dark god has an association with the underworld, conflicts, wars, insurrections, disasters and social unrest amid dangerous transition years along with accompanying celestial warning signs of eclipses, planetary alignments that signal and natural disasters featuring major storms, floods, droughts, famine and earthquakes.
Bolon Yokte appears at the end of Baktuns, or ages, and will be present at the next transitional age, or 'creation,' starting on 21 December of the year 2012.
Other translations of his name I found are the 'God of The Nine Steps'; the 'Nine-Footed God'; and the Jaguar-Footed-Tree. This is because the word 'bolon' or 'balan' (the number 9) was used by the Maya as a pun for balam, or jaguar. Bolon Yokte was seen at the same time as nine individuals and as a collective god. There are various interpretations linking Bolon Yokte to the public return to Earth of demonic aliens and UFOs.
I interpreted a section of this text to read as follows:
However, when we see that the dark Lord Bolon Yokte clearly shown; I know that the implications of the Maya mundane astrologers are quite clear:
It isn't a good one.
Some scholars have said that an incomplete text on Tortuguero Monument 6 just doesn’t say much of anything.
They tend to forget the cyclical view of history that astrologers know directly connects planetary configurations and their cycles to Earth history.
Ancient Astrological Data & Importance of The Venus Transits
His ravenous thirst for knowledge led him to seek, collect and organize historic tablets of clay, wood and wax to add to his giant library. His collection became a time-capsule for Mesopotamian cultural and intellectual achievements.
I learned that Ashurbanipal's massive library was discovered in the year 1853. It was found to contain thousands of tablets that were shipped to the British Museum in London where they were repaired, organized and then translated into English. I digested everything I could for years.
The contents of the library's tablets were found to be mostly on Astrology, omen literature, divination, ritual texts, medical formulas, dream books and also included the Epic of Gilgamesh.
Another collection found were a set of prophetic tablets called the Enuma Anu Enlil - that is the book of Anu (the God of Heaven) and Enlil (the god of Earth).
The Enuma Anu Enlil is composed of 68 to 70 tablets with 7,000 omens.
With the exception of the king’s personal affairs, the entire body of data was all about Natural astrology.
The master was versed in astrology and astronomy. The apprentice was a technical worker, a stellar cartographer (astronomer) whose job it was to systematically record and map all the astronomical data observed from the skies.
The master astrologers and stellar cartographers maintained what amounted to an unbroken watch of the skies. I discovered that they used sighting devices and water-clocks to measure the positions, the timing and configurations of celestial events like the rising, setting, conjunctions and oppositions of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars.
Any configurations the master astrologers saw as signs or omens, they first interpreted and then reported personally to the king himself.
These were mundane astrologers who also served as principal advisors to royal courts. The king fully supported them and their mundane institutions of professional astrologers lasted well into the Second Century BCE.
From what I could determine, the tablets of the Enuma Anu Enlil were organized in this way:
Then came 9 tablets of Astrometeorological data with weather omens and their mundane climate interpretations based on meteorological phenomena like clouds, storms, thunder and fog.
In these tablets are listed the combinations of planetary appearances, their alignments, along with their risings and settings.
For instance, lunar eclipses were associated with winds, lightning, thunder, and earthquakes. The eclipses of the Sun were considered to portend sinister events to come, like invasions and the destruction of people and crops. Mercury stimulated economic health by means of commerce and trade, and also forecasted damaging winds.
The planet Venus could bring prosperity or destruction of crops by wind and flood depending on its placement and configuration.
The remaining tablets detailed phenomena on individual planets, the constellations
The oldest part of the Enuma Anu Enlil focused on a single planet - Venus.
Called The Venus Tablets that belonged to the Babylonian King Ammisaduqa.
These tablets are all astrology and contains a full astrological text that lists - in great detail - the transits and cycles of the planet Venus.
The planet Venus
The rising and setting of Venus relative to the Sun from geocentric observation from Earth is what we call 'morning star' and 'evening star.'
The Mesopotamian Venus tablets, like those of the Maya astrologers who came 2,000 years later, saw Venus phases as having various influences on Earth - on rainfall, or drought that impacts a population's food supply as well as the geopolitical effects, the outcome of wars and the king’s formal and personal affairs.
The Venus tablets proves that by since 1900-1600 BCE the science of astrology had become
The Maya provided specific astrological delineations for the five eastern morning star risings of Venus. Additional codices and inscriptions also refer to the importance of Venus and its synodic cycle to all humanity.
There were two recent major Venus Transits across the face of the Sun spread 8 years apart. One was in June 2004 and the other took place this past June.
Both those Venus transits were warnings of the end of the world age, but few people actually cared enough to listen and take heed.
Prophetic Mystery of Maya Tortuguero Monument 6 & The Celestial Mechanics Of Global Precession Prophecy
Gronemeyer had translated the Mayan Tortuguero Monument 6 into six sections. According to him, the first section concerned the birth and enthronement of Bahlam Ajaw.
Curious, in late November and December 2012, the planet Venus has indeed been a 'morning star' and will have previously completed a conjunction to Saturn, transiting along the Via Combusta, or 'fiery path,' in the constellations of sidereal Libra and tropical Scorpio.
But, in the fifth section, Gronemeyer describes a kind of ritual burning of a important house and the setting up of images of Bahlam Ajaw with a ritual of measuring.
In biblical and rabbinical Hebrew, the word "abomination" is a term for an idol.
We find the context of a final section that begins with three Mayan glyphs before the right hand side wing and continues through the wing.
Then it will happen - darkness and Bolon-Yokte will descend to the...?"
But in this Maya prophecy there are also heroes.
It is prophesied that a team of heroes from a generation in power will fight back against the 'lords of the underworld' who are said to fear the heroes for their honesty, conviction, commitment and valor.
The heroes bravely descend straight into the underworld to take on Bolon Yokte K'uh - and not to simply fight back - but to conquer the lords of the underworld.
The Mayan creation story has referenced them and said that the heroes will be successful if they learn to also fight any darkness and fear which lives within themselves.
These so-called 'night lords' are exactly the same as the Lord of The Nine Steps - that is Bolon Yokte K'uh.
The Spanish invaders learned of the astrological prophecies and in their Inquisition brought from Europe to the New World of the Americas the Spanish burned all the Maya codices they could find.
The history says that at the time of the colonial years, some towns in the Yucatan possessed copies of a book named after one of the last great prophets called 'Chilam Balam,' or the 'jaguar priest.' The books were translated into European languages.
One translator, however, found compelling evidence that some of the prophecies were originally prophecies concerning the end of the 13th Baktun - that is the date of 21 December 2012.
One of the major finds that led to the 'end of the world' attachments to the Mayan Calendar was said to be translated by Dr. Maud Makemson, an astronomer and linguist who translated the Chilam Balam of Tizimin where we read this prophecy:
These transition times from one world period to another is what the Maya meant by the 'end of the world age.'
I published my forecast in March 2012 for a major drought which came to pass earlier this year that struck the most important food crop known by the Maya - that's maize - what we call corn.
Midwestern United States
The Maya astrologers were also astrometeorologists. They forecasted the climate and weather by astronomic means. That is also what I do.
I came to see history and the fall of empires over the centuries not only due to invasions, but because of climate change. That is how most civilizations ended and that is how the Mayan civilization ended - after three very deep droughts.
That is my forecast for the transitional years of the Twenty-Tens.
We can see this in how the Maya mundane astrologers wrote about their conception of time:
"It was, it will be, it is..."
They use these tenses in their creation tales. The more I read about them, the more I understood since I am also an astrologer who sees time as cyclical and not merely linear.
It is how the Maya astrologers saw everything in Time and in the history of the Earth and its inhabitants:
To know of the past, the present and the future manifests always ... in the moment of 'now.'
Some scholars of the Mayan Prophecies see the split in the tree branches in the image above as representing the dark rift of our own Milky Way Galaxy.
The celestial configurations associated with the sidereal and tropical zodiacs and the precession of the equinoxes are rife with global significance.
Substantial research has been done to verify the concept that the center of the composition corresponds to a mandala as an image of the whole world, and it functions as a cosmic clock as well.
To accomplish that, the architects placed all the figures in such a way that they appear to be oriented in the direction of precessional time - the opposite planetary movement.
This is a direct correspondence to the constellation Draco in the heavens. The architects placed the celestial axis at her breast, to suggest that she nurtures the solar system.
The image of Ahura Mazda was a winged sun disk, and the axis of 561 BC goes directly through the icon of a man with a solar disk standing at the winter solstice location. The implication is that the Assyrians and the Babylonians did not have the same image of the heavens as the Egyptians and the Persians.
However a boundary stone placed by Nebuchadnezzar is a composite of the constellations, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Aquila, and Ophiuchus.
With this direct representation, it is clear that Nebuchadnezzar had a focus on the same intersection of the ecliptic and galactic planes as the Egyptians and the Zoroastrians; the winter solstice of 2012 AD.
Time is not available in Nebuchadnezzar's representation, so it is an eternal boundary marker of his creation.
The primary interest in this area of the heavens is the idea of creation and cosmogenesis. The heavens show a dot-to-dot image of a child-king on the back of a large bird. From Babylon we are given the legend of Etana.
A prince who rode an eagle through the clouds of heaven.
This opening in the clouds is the dark rift referred to by the Maya as the mouth of First Mother. The record is quite clear, the dark rift was recognized around the world as the location where a new kingdom was brought forth.
Since it is located above Sagittarius and Scorpio, it is enlightenment over self gnosis. It is not intended to imply that the Maya received their celestial wisdom from the Levant, or Egypt.
But, we should not be oblivious to the fact that the 18th Dynasty of Egypt had conquered the whole Levant region all the way to Persia.
The conquest of the Middle East came after Pharaoh Thutmose I read in the message of the Sphinx that he would be made king of Egypt if he cleared the sands from the Sphinx. Thus, the 18th Dynasty was a return of kingship after some previous catastrophe.
The 18th Dynasty subsequently lost their empire to the very kings and princes they educated in their ways of Amun. In 323 BC, Alexander restored Egypt to her former glory and established Alexandria, Egypt as the new center of Western Culture, repeating the prior redemptions.
Jenkins continues, "If we move forward to 2012 AD, we see the winter solstice at the tail of Scorpio on the Denderah zodiac.
The characters on the outer circle of the composition are spiritual messengers.
Capricorn and Sagittarius are in the circle of characters that represent the metaphysical element air.
Scorpio, on the other hand is a transitional character drawn moving back into the physical circle from the circle of air, and represents a return to emotional consciousness, or the element water.
In the ring of fire, associated with Capricorn, stands Thoth, the archetype of rational wisdom.
In the ring of fire associated with Sagittarius, stands Neb Maat Ra, the archetype of the complete human.
Sagittarius represents the end of a cycle toward cosmic wisdom - with his forelegs resting on a baroque of sagacity.
This is not surprising, since the name Sagittarius is associated with a sage, or a wise man.
What is important with regards to Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, is that the baboon representation of Thoth is shown on the winter solstice line for 2012.
A baboon Thoth represents instinctual knowledge without human gnosis. Thus, the transition from Neb Maat Ra to the baboon is a new spiritual beginning after a completion of the cycle of human gnosis.
That correspondence is further proof that the Maya comprehension of the center of the galaxy passing by the winter solstice representing a new beginning was fully appreciated by the Egyptians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, and subsequently, the Jews and the Gnostic Christians.
Interestingly, the Denderah temple timeline begins in 561 BC, almost precisely when Jenkins suggests that the Maya were determining the length of the precessional year and starting to use the Maya long count as a calendar form.
This correspondence cannot be used to suggest that the Maya did not discover the precessional rate independently.
What can be safely assumed is that the Maya logic for beginning was derived from the stars, and so was the Egyptian idea of beginning.
The focus on the winter solstice by Jenkins is valuable, pertinent, and accurate. However, the evidence of the rising sun, associated with the ballcourt and the crack in the turtle's back suggest that the Maya were using the vernal equinox as a cosmic clock, just like the Egyptians.
They saw the galaxy as First Mother, just like the Egyptians. They saw the movement from below to above as an indication that First Father was rising out of First Mother, just like the Egyptians.
The number of similarities suggest cross fertilization between the civilizations. But, it does not say when that cross-fertilization took place.
It is quite possible that the Egyptian expression, "the sun has set twice where it now rises" at the end of the Age of Aries, means that precessional knowledge is far older than modern anthropologists and archaeologists are willing to consider.
This knowledge could have been available long before any migration to the Americas ever took place. If the migration took place by sea, then the precessional knowledge would have been a necessary component for celestial navigation.
If the migration took place by land, as generally accepted, the precessional knowledge would have been necessary for the proper planning of cosmic ritual, and defining personal place on the globe.
The expression, 'as above, so below,' represents a navigational correspondence. A five-degree variance in zenith star location is a five-degree variation in location on the Earth as well.
When a community defined its zenith legends, it was also describing the navigational information to reach the community's latitude, whether by land or by sea."
So, the major celestial 'event' of 21 December 2012 can also be about the effects of the "something" in the Maya prophecy concerning the end of our 4th World Age in transition to the coming 5th World Age.
Considering the sad state of the world today, I would not put anything out of hand.
This transition could be preceded by a sudden celestial event that opening the nine-year transition period leading into 2020-2021 - a year I call the cardinal climax.
What is more important is that this end of the 4th World Age opens up into a dangerous transition into the 5th Global Age.
So that 9-year transition officially begins at the Capricorn solstice of 21 December 2012.
We would then be wise to watch the skies for any kind of major astronomical event to take place.
One location I have been watching for years is Ursa Major.
With the exception of the stars Dubhe and Alkaid, the stars of Ursa Major, known as the Big Dipper, all have motions heading to a point in Sagittarius.
In esoteric mundane astrology, it is known that the stars of the constellation Pleiades focuses the energy of the Seven Rays from the Galactic Center of Sagittarius toward the stars of Ursa Major, the Great Bear, then onto the brightest star in the heavens, Sirius, and back to our local star, the Sun and then onto Earth.
There was an annular total eclipse of the Sun and Moon occulting Alcyone - the main star of the Pleiades - that took place across Asia, over the Pacific Ocean and ended in the western United States on May 20, 2012.
That annular eclipse presaged the events that went before it and those to come. This eclipse was known by the Maya mundane astrologers. What followed was a Drought, Heat waves and dead fish in the Midwestern U.S., along with a series of unfavorable headline events.
The annular eclipse of 20 May 2012 as seen from space
This again confirms what I have seen in my own mundane work on this Cardinal Crisis decade and my contention that we are indeed living in an historic transitional decade.
The disruptions and disorder in today's world stems mainly from the widespread corruption, graft, greed, sin and recklessness of those who go against the grain of what is good.
These are they who abhor honesty, good faith, health and working toward the well-being of society.
I remind those who have committed crimes against individuals and populations that their opportunity to repent and change their ways is running out of time.
The fruit from their evil ways cements their own personal destinies that will end quite horribly inside of the Great Dragon of the outer darkness, and the evil demons inside the dragon don't take cash, gold, or MasterCard.
You cannot deal or bargain with them.

Nonetheless, by the time of the ingress of the Sun to 00-Capricorn on December 21, 2012, the world will have entered a powerful, unique, dangerous and challenging global transitional period, according to the Maya mundane astrologers and their Long Count Calendar.
That year continues the transitional era the world has entered. The sudden turn of events of 2012 will continue to impact many lives into the middle years of the Twenty-Tens.
Let's take a closer look at the major astrological configurations that will dominate 2013.
Society Strikes Back
It is a good time to find job opportunities and to begin important business and professional deals as the inclinations show effective cooperation from people in positions of authority under the Jupiter-Saturn trine.
Under Saturn's transit in Scorpio in trine to Neptune in Pisces there are matters associated with corporate, government and professional secrecy.
Ideas, Strategies & Solutions
Before we go delve into the next story below - Jupiter Trine Saturn: A false sense of stock market and financial security, I want to offer up some solutions for those reading about all the depressive news and events in the world.
For 20 years we all have been living inside what I call 'Baby Boomer Hell," - this is a dark angst climate created by the conscious and unconscious mind of a generational establishment that has not (and is not) facing the facts of life - and that is aging.
For a boomer generation that has sought EST, Transcendental Meditation, eastern philosophies and a slew of ideologies from the 1960s to the present, seeking 'enlightenment,' it is amazing that the baby boomers - after nearly half a century - have still not found their 'Age of Aquarius' which would have allowed them to be at ease with getting old.
But the fact is that they haven't.
So, as the establishment from 1992 to 2012, the boomers have been in total denial of aging and because of this they never planned for the future. This is one of the major faults of the baby boomers - not thinking ahead and pretending that would have stood still for them - waiting for them to 'grow up.'
They have lived for the present at the expense of the future and by doing so have made their own beds in the process. The baby boomer "me generation" has broken the inter-generational contract. There is nothing that can be done for them.
Only individual baby boomers who have seen through the sheer hypocrisy of their own generation will be able to make their way into what is ahead.
The new establishment coming in - Generation X (1961-1975) is going to have it's hands full and that means these solutions:
Getting Tough By Leading
Cleaning Up the Boomer Mess By Bitch-Slapping Stupid People, if Necessary
Holding Privy Councils
Protecting the Young
Recovering Stolen Resources For the Kids
Reforming & Enforcing Laws To Protect The Public
Removing Surveillance Technology Put Up By Fearful Baby Boomers
Opening Up the Economy & Getting Back To The Business Of Business
Reforming the Educational System
Reforming the banks
Rejecting Austerity on the public
Rebooting the Credit System by starting all at prefect credit
Ending the debt servicing system
Firing Ideologues From All Jobs and Positions of Power
Holding Bankers Accountable For Theft, High Crimes & Misdemeanors
Re-Establishing Respect For U.S. Constitutional Law
These matters will have to be taken seriously in order for American (and world society by default) to get back to economic, social, economic and political health.
It does not mean that we are seeking a 'perfect' world; since this has never been a perfect world.
What it means is to restore confidence and excellence in how we lead, how live and work with one another.
How we respect the quality of life and how we reject the ideological prissy attitude, culture wars and smug laziness the disruptive baby boomer generation has made far too commonplace in world society.
The year 2013 and beyond opens up the 21st century in earnest.
For the past 12 years, since 2000, we have been living under a boomer establishment that was not interested in the future, but only in themselves - as their chosen term "Me Generation," clearly implies.
Well, the time for the "me generation" has passed and those who took part in believing that spoiled term with ideological attitudes to boot will now have to sleep in the beds they made themselves.
As for Generation X (1961-75) Echo X (1975-1980) and Generation Y (1981-95) and for the Millennial children:
It's time to get down to brass tacks and get to work.
The Cardinal Crisis Years
I keep saying to anyone who will listen that no economy can function in such a mad-hatter environment.
My astrological advice has been the same for years and that is to invest in hard assets like precious metals and preserve your capital from the bozos who keep lying to you with ponzi-smiles planted on their faces.
The last trine between these two major Business planets – in the element of earth – took place amid the economic emergency during the late summer and autumn of 2008.
The pressures on banks, nations and their populations will take on a new urgency as leaders and policymakers can no longer ‘kick the can down the road.’
This reflects a greatly distorted market and shows us that the market’s expectations reflect negative growth.
Federal Reserve stimulus measures are hampering recovery rather than spurring it. This is done by channeling credit away from smaller and mid-sized companies and pushing it instead to big banks and the government.
Since 2008 when Pluto entered Capricorn, the Fed has unleashed a slew of stimulus measures to prop up favored Wall Street banks and firms.
They have cuts interest rates to rock-bottom levels and introduced unorthodox measures such as Quantitative Easing (QE.)
This where the Federal Reserve buys up bonds like U.S. Treasuries along with tens of billions in junk mortgage debt held by corrupt banks - while pumping the American economy full of fiat dollars in the process, thus debasing the U.S. Dollar.
The Fed is now running a third round of quantitative easing where it buys $40 billion a month in mortgage-backed securities a month from banks.
On top of juicing the economy with cheap money, the Fed stated that benchmark interest rates will remain at near zero-levels until they see the American unemployment rate drop to 6.5 percent from its current rate of 7.7 percent.
And that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
So it means the Federal Reserve's so-called "stimulus measures" will remain firmly in place to keep the dollar weak and that continues to make precious metals like gold a very attractive hard asset - for those who can afford it.
The baby plutocrats who actually lost tons of money after blowing up an insane economic bubble in the late 1990s and 2000s - and since the economic emergency of 2008, the Federal Reserve has had two rounds of quantitative easing - that has injected over $2 trillion into the flailing U.S. economy.
In mid-December 2012, The Federal Reserve said that it would beef up QE3 by adding an additional $45 billion in asset purchases from banks - this is also U.S. government debt - which brings the total liquidity to $85 billion a month with an aim to keep bank borrowing costs low (so the theory goes) and to encourage investing and hiring.
But the same corporations and companies that are said to be sitting on 'tons of cash' are not hiring.
We can see this fact in the double-digit unemployment among all non-baby boomers. Anyone under the age of 55 years old and younger isn't being hired or 'invested' in whatsoever.
It is simply amazing to witness the outright hypocrisy of the outgoing establishment of baby boomers who think everyone else is stupid.
The side-effects to these Fed policies include the illusion of a rising stock market and a weaker U.S. dollar but the Fed's policies are not freeing up credit to small and mid-size companies - who do the bulk of hiring.
What it does is to allow the Fed to continue to buy up debt so that the government can keep on spending and the five big banks can continue to fleece everyone else as they have been doing for over a decade now - since the baby boomer bubble/bust years that began in the 1990s.
In 'saving the economy,' what the Federal Reserve is really doing is guaranteeing an even slower economic recovery.
By printing fiat money in the tens of billions to maintain the baby boomer illusion that all is well. But the truth is that there will never be true sustainable economic and social growth - much less a 'recovery' - until all the baby boomers are out of positions of power and jobs.
In short, the boomer generation has been robbing Peter to Pay Paul (this is, themselves.) And to live for the present at the great expense of the future (and on everyone's checkbook.)
The preference for low tax rates to encourage business investment and expand hiring along with the boomer establishment failure in the belief that the markets themselves can set prices and allocate capital better than government.
How can they claim to be responsible is beyond all belief.
Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve has dramatically expanded its role in the economy and markets - practically creating a new branch of unaccountable government.
After December 2012's Fed announcement, the head of the Dallas Federal Reserve, President Richard Fisher told CNBC he's worried that the U.S. central bank is in a "Hotel California" type of monetary policy because of its "engorged balance sheet."
Evoking lyrics from the famous song by The Eagles, he said he feared the Fed would be able to "check out anytime you like, but never leave."
Fisher said that he argued against revealing the new inflation and unemployment targets set by the Fed this week, saying he's worried that the markets will become "overly concerned" with the thresholds.
Fisher would not comment on any contingency plans at the Fed should Republicans and President Barack Obama fail to strike a deal to prevent the automatic tax increases and spending cuts from taking effect in 2013.
"What you see is what you get here," Fisher said. "We have a hyper-accommodative monetary policy here ... cheap and abundant money that the Fed has made widely available."
Again, this is outright madness.
Former U.S. Treasury Secretary under George Bush and baby boomer Hank Paulson in 2008
All this, while at the same time they expand public and private austerity - forcing increasing levels of societal and geopolitical upheaval throughout the globe.
All of it has been a giant ponzi scheme - the lies, the theft, the ideology, greed, the graft and the illusion that the United States is actually a competitive and healthy nation.
As tens of millions of entrepreneurs, workers, students, business owners and families sit broke with their working skills rusting - the corporations and banks who were literally saved from bankruptcy by the acts of the American people - are now stealing and spending like drunken sailors in a whorehouse.
This, while the entire economy sits like a shaky house of cards ready to crash.
To add to our gloom, are the idiot baby boomer establishment in Europe who hate their young people as well.
The European Commission (EC) and its member state leaders continue to also 'kick the can down the road,' just like the boomer idiots in the United States.
All this, without resolving the financial and political corruption that has been rampant among their own baby boomer generational elite.
So, what is obvious is that the solar year of 2012 has not taught EU's leaders, bankers and policymakers their lesson in facing the music as they pander evermore to win elections while putting band-aids on the corpse of the European economy.
Mary Mary Magdalene asked unto Jesus:
"My Lord, in what type is the outer darkness; or rather, how many regions of chastisement are there in it?"
Of the Dragon of the Outer Darkness
"Jesus answered and said unto Mary:
"The outer darkness is a great dragon, whose tail is in his mouth, it is outside the whole world and surrounds the whole world. And there are many regions of chastisement within it.
There are 12 mighty chastisement-dungeons and a ruler is in every dungeon and the face of the rulers is different one from another."
Of the rulers of the 12 dungeons and their names
"And the first ruler," said Christ, "who is in the first dungeon, has a crocodile's face, whose tail is in his mouth.
And out of the jaws of the dragon cometh all ice and all dust and all cold and all different diseases. This is he who is called with his authentic name in his region 'Enchthonin.'
"And the ruler who is in the second dungeon - a cat's face is his authentic face. This is he who is called in his region 'Charachar.'
"And the ruler who is in the third dungeon - a dog's face is his authentic face. This is he who is called in his region 'Archarōch.'
"And the ruler who is in the fourth dungeon - a serpent's face is his authentic face. This is he who is called in his region 'Achrōchar.'
"And the ruler who is in the fifth dungeon - a black bull's face is his authentic face. This is he who is called in his region 'Marchūr.'
"And the ruler who is in the sixth dungeon - a wild boar's face is his authentic face. This is he who is called in his region 'Lamchamōr.'
"And the ruler who is in the seventh dungeon - a bear's face is his authentic face. This is he who is called in his region with his authentic name 'Luchar.'
"And the ruler of the eighth dungeon - a vulture's face is his authentic face, whose name in his region is called 'Laraōch.'
"And the ruler of the ninth dungeon - a basilisk's face is his authentic face, whose name in his region is called 'Archeōch.'
"And in the 10th dungeon is a multitude of rulers and every one of them has seven dragon's heads in his authentic face. And he who is over them all is in his region with his name called 'Xarmarōch.'
"And in the 11th dungeon is a multitude of rulers and every one of them has seven cat-faced heads in his authentic face. And the great one over them is called in his region 'Rōchar.'
"And in the 12th dungeon is an exceedingly great multitude of rulers and every one of them hath seven dog-faced heads in his authentic face. And the great one over them is called in his region 'Chrēmaōr.'
"These rulers then of these twelve dungeons are inside the dragon of the outer darkness, each and every one of them has a name every hour, and every one of them changeth his face every hour.
