A Globe On The Edge?
The End Of An Era:
Our Third Industrial Age, Transitions & The Dow Jones Index
During the cardinal crisis years, humanity has many choices about the direction of the globe.
Mired in ignorance, corruption and greed; while full of violence and disdain for the sanctity of life; I continue to warn all that the future is in danger should not good people stand tall and fight the evildoers causing disorder and dysfunction on this planet.
Preview Of 2013
December is the 10th month of the year. January is the 11th month and February the 12th month.
This means that the start of each month will be slow until mid-month when full moon weeks take place, only to end in last quarter lunar phases into the early days of the following new month.
The chief device to delay the reckoning has been accounting fraud in banking and government, essentially misreporting everything on all balance sheets and in statistical reports to give the appearance of well-being where there is actually grave illness, like the cosmetics and prosthetics Michael Jackson used in his final years to pretend he still had a face on the front of his head.
A complete lack of enforcement and regulation by all the authorities charged with making sure that rules are followed in money matters.
January, February & March
Transits of January
The fixed positions of Mars and Saturn clearly reveal that the stubbornness is based on ego, ideology and an unwillingness to admit one was wrong.
Vice-President Joe Biden and Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell had to step in to work out a final deal as the relationship between House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama unraveled.
Boehner's slur came after Reid accused Boehner of running a 'dictatorship' in the House of Representatives."
From the looks of world transits, it is quite clear that the personal, cultural, ideological and political negativity will continue unabated through the winter months and into the spring of 2013.
That means that the months of February and March show a need for careful and prudent navigation.
This house, that of Pisces, signifies psychological insights into the subconscious mind. The 12th House is also associated with secret investigations and reversals of fortune.
Group politics in Washington could witness internal battles and change of face in Republican leadership in January.
February's transits show that as Mercury slows, the next ideological battle in Washington DC will be over the U.S. debt ceiling, the nation's credit rating and major entitlement programs.
The ideological wars, personality battles and divisiveness - in the midst of an historic economic crisis - means that February, March and April represent a far greater threat to markets than December's 'fiscal cliff ' going into the spring of 2013.
Transits say Republicans will demand significant cuts in government healthcare programs like Medicare and Medicaid that they say are the biggest chunk of U.S. debt. Democrats say they will oppose any entitlement cuts.
As Mercury slows to retrograde by mid-February, negotiations in Washington looks to be complicated, divisive, disorderly and muddled going into March.
In astrology, the water element dilutes Mercury's usual quick, analytic nature.
What happens is that the minds of those who allow the influence to incline them then behave outwardly with base sentiment emotions and impractical ideas.
So while people may appear enthusiastic and willing on the surface, in reality during Mercury's transit in Pisces, they are actually disoriented and confused with serious lack of prudence and common sense.
This is where Mercury's transit is considered to be weak.
Again, this happens from February 15 to March 3, and then again, from April 2 to April 7.
Mercury also acts through trade, so its fall in Pisces indicates problems with earning money. Businesses can suffer by mistakes made in daily activities due to Mercury's weakness.
The confused atmosphere leads to items like keys and devices being lost. People are generally forgetful along with their inattention to small, but important details.
There is too much sentiment, dwelling on the past. The Pisces-inclined amorphous emotions causes confusion, mental fogginess, lack of clarity and a general lack of progress.
This is better, rather than to try to make your spring plans during Mercury's retrograde, fall and debilitation in Pisces.
A Globe On The Edge?
But the popular culture version of the "end of the world" did not come; as had long been forecasted here on Global Astrology.
Many who took part in the Mayan-Calendar-end-of-the-world-mass-media-induced foolishness appear to have since gone back to sleep.
I contend that they never really ever woke up.
That is, if some cared to even notice.
According to the Mayan Long Count Astrological Calendar, on 21 December 2012, our Sun entered tropical Capricorn and crossed the center of the Milky Way Galaxy from our view on Earth. That is where the Maya calendar ended.
On that date the world entered a transition era that led into a new world age in our cardinal crisis years.
We are now in fresh territory - the transitional years at the end of our Third Industrial Age.
My mundane analysis of a Saturn-Pluto-Jupiter YOD shows difficult times are be ahead worldwide. This is in accordance with the configurations of the planets and stars relative to Earth.
The YODS of 2012-2013
Sun Enters Tropical Capricorn
21 December 2012
The mundane diagnostic chart above is dated for the ingress of the Sun into topical Capricorn: 21 December 2012.
It shows a curious set of aspects called inconjuncts, or quincuxes, that form what are known as a YOD aspect. There are two YODS in the mundane chart:
A sextile of Saturn-Pluto in quincux to Jupiter in Gemini
A sextile of the North Lunar Node and Mars in quincux to Ceres in Gemini
The YOD is basically a double quincux pointing at a single body, usually an apex planet of note.
The transpersonal planets of Saturn in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn as both formed quincuxes to the apex planet, Jupiter in Gemini, conjoined to the fixed star Aldebaran, at 9-Gemini.
Moreover, Jupiter, in detriment in Gemini on 21 December 2012, also opposed transiting Mercury and Venus in Sagittarius. This is unfavorable for the three-month period to mid-March's vernal equinox as it stifles progress in communications while also signaling bad faith among parties.
The number 10 is known as a 'perfect number.' The numeric value of the YOD represents a dot - a single point of 'divine energy.'
It is symbolic of an unrecognized necessity abruptly gushing forth after brewing for years.
If there are any malign influences then the maladjustment are prone to surface and actively struggle in the environment.”
With the apex planet being Jupiter in Gemini, the effects are wide-ranging and affect billions of people.
The end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar on 21 December 2012 saw significant angst and fear in the world.
The wild popular culture (Gemini) mania along with its misconceptions amid serious economic, generational, religious, secular, social and political stresses arrived at a time of historic transition for the world.
The primary concerns are the generational, cultural, economic, ideological, political and religious battles between secular groups and traditionalists that have been increasing steadily worldwide.
But then again, those reading should already know that I have been forecasting all this for years, here on Global Astrology.
"And it is hard to imagine them not yawning open dangerously in 2013."
Canada and Australia are entering their own (long-delayed and spectacular) housing bubble busts, the USA sharply losing credibility as it fails to politically address its balance sheet problems - or even continue to pretend that it might.
Japan is utterly floundering under a new lack of commitment to nuclear power, the need to import virtually all the fossil fuels it needs for its industrial economy, a consequent negative balance of trade (for the first time in decades) and a deadly debt-to-GDP ratio around 240 percent.
The global bond market is held together with baling wire and hose clamps.
And interest rates must rise hand-in-hand with that rising risk - unless the ruling authorities (central banks and governments) conspire to repress them.
It may limit the damage, but otherwise they are stuck where they are geographically and as the other nations in Europe ride their economies down, Germany's will contract, too.
Everything economic is hitting the skids in Europe now led by plunging car sales.

Astrologers forecast and have been doing so for many centuries.
World transits are history. Astrologers and seers have long forecasted events that have taken place in human history.
I continue to remind everyone that after 2013's brief opportunity to make use of the Grand Water Trines; we then enter into the solar year of 2014 - where a Grand Cardinal Cross awaits the world.
I have written about this global configuration before.
Grand Cardinal Cross Of 2014
A Grand Cardinal Cross does not play games. It means all business.
These are very serious world transits.
From January 2013 this global cardinal configuration of a grand cardinal cross is now less than 15 months away and it too will revolve worldwide.
But, from the looks at the state of the world at present - with the failure of the outgoing establishment to solve the problems it made and neglected - things don't look so cheeky at this juncture before we reach 2014.
Policymakers, economists, leaders, etc., etc., had better quit 'kicking the can down the road' and either solve the problems with solutions that they have been avoiding or things are going to get a lot worse.
Europe's debt crisis is a ticking time-bomb that bodes ill for the stability of world markets.
Don't say that I didn't give prior astrological warnings. I've been doing just that for years.
Moreover, this year's YOD between Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto can offer up the illusion of working together for a common cause, but with it falling far short of what is actually expected.
This is mainly because of very poor judgement (Jupiter detriment in Gemini) having to deal with Saturn's 'wandering' in moody Scorpio along with the "all or nothing" demands of Pluto's autocratic transit in Capricorn.
The baby boomer elite has simply run out of time, by means of world transits. They and their dying oligarchic parents wanted a 'new world order' - however, what they will have brought to bear is a 'new world disorder.'
Something about the outworn economic, political, social and religious order will have to give way - and it will do just that. All things are always in motion.
Usually, due to a seemingly providential twist of fate…greater opportunities to take part in a larger social
I learned that from Thomas Jefferson, a wise Gnostic who wrote my home country's Declaration of Independence in the city where I was born and raised.
The collective baby boomer generational elite that refuses to step aside for the new generation now old enough to lead as the new establishment signals rough transition years ahead.
The breaking of the inter-generational contract by boomers worldwide has led to a deep distrust of them as a generation in all sectors of society, business, economic life, cultural affairs and in government.
They use the vehicle of economic austerity, bringing with them repression of youth by economic means while spreading fear and xenophobia - an historical problem on the European continent that has led to civil disorder, conflict and war.
The apex planet produces a potent focus of energy that oscillates between bifurcated states or situated personalities.
The common people are distrustful of the suspicious, dark moody atmosphere of Saturn in Scorpio while angry at the generational establishment that seeks to consolidate power through Pluto in Capricorn.
We can see this by means of the square to Pluto from transiting Uranus in Aries.
However, if it can be done, then greater opportunities and rewards will come about as a result.
In 2013, we approach the global Grand Water Trines, which includes a Jupiter-Saturn trine.
These trines, in my forecasting experience, are not positive configurations for stock markets; which have greatly under-performed under previous Jupiter-Saturn trines.
Since 2008, during the last Jupiter-Saturn earth trine, the economic status and financial stability of nations, their banks and markets, have been on the precipice of collapse.
As we enter the fifth year since the global economic emergency, we discover from Dutch researcher Wim Grommen that we are at the end of what he calls the Third Industrial Revolution, a crisis he says threatens Prosperity.
Grommen said this was the result of a decades-long thought process; when back in January 1988 he was asked by the executive board of Transfer Solutions to think about the future.
In recent years, Grommen discussed his thoughts with Dutch and Belgian scientists via articles about transitional ages including the relation to stock indices in our present time.
Mirroring his insights with other economic scientists enabled Grommen to continually refine his insights.
Wim Grommen's insights resulted in him coming to the following conclusions...
The Cardinal Crisis Years
Transitions are social transformation processes that cover at least one generation.
In that case then, there is also a fifth phase:
The great catalyst in the process was the steam engine which also caused a revolution in transport as it was used in railways and shipping.
Because of this, a new social class emerged: the workers - or the industrial proletariat.
The gap between the bottom and the top of society becomes very large.
Unfortunately many people attach a lot of value to graphs which are, however, very deceptive.
This becomes painfully clear when we have a look at the high unemployment rates of some countries.
Decreasing stock exchange rates; highly increasing unemployment; towering debts of companies and governments - and the bad financial positions of banks.
