World Events 25 March 2012
Mercury goes direct on 4th April and the delays in communication will be over. Try to initiate new activities after this and also refrain from buying communication gadgets before this period otherwise you will end up with a lot of problems (cell phones is a good example).
The next Mercury retrograde period is between 14th July and 7th Aug and it will be in the sign of Leo. We can expect problems to do with Royalty or countries with monarchy. However, this will be a great time for speech writers and anyone with Mercury in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. They will be in their elements and even more enthusiastic, convincing and very positive. Take advantage of this transit to write down your sales pitches and motivational writings.
Neptune is a 165 year cycle so none of you are born with it! As Neptune goes into Pisces till 2025, we are in the beginning stages of a long period of spirituality, idealism, visionary humanitarian pursuits around the world, actors and musicians being involved with charities as well as saving children, and you will see these in the news more often as Neptune in Pisces begins to take effect, accurately reflecting the most inspirational side of humanity. Children born now will be extremely sensitive and more humanitarian than previous generations.
Social reform will be emphasized but spirituality instead of dogmatic religion will be in vogue. Spiritual music, Sufism, inspirational songs with all the scenes of ocean and doves and see gulls will thrive! Robots playing music will be perfected during this phase and improvisation on Chopin or Mozart a reality now. Huge musical fountains will be in vogue and played with musical compositions like they have in Dubai.
Children born with Neptune in Pisces will be acutely sensitive to their environment and very spiritual and concerned about the elderly and social causes. You will also see a revival of impressionism, seascapes (I suppose the coming floods will bring beautiful sunsets and ample material for artists!).
Here are some examples of creative people who were born with Neptune in Pisces: Artists Henri Matisse, Gogen, Paul Gauguin, Van Gogh.
In literature, Alexandre Dumas was inspired to write The Lady with the Camelliasand The Black Tulip (both Neptune in Pisces themes), George Bernard Shaw, Harriet Stowe highlighted the plight of the poor with Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Oscar Wilde, Victor Hugo wrote Les Misérables, and Voltaire advocated social reform but also went against the dictates of strict religious values. Charles Darwin published his Origin of Species which divided religion and science like nothing before, but The Communist Manifesto of Karl Marx created more problems than solutions by appealing to the poor but also creating a welfare state.
In Science, Freud laid the foundations of his psychoanalysis and symbology in dreams. and Nikola Tesla showed the magic of electricity and also invented the rotating magnetic field and lit the world with electricity. Unfortunately, his compassion for the poor (which was the basis of his free electricity) went against the need for profit for J.P. Morgan who withdrew his support.
There will be a revival of Tesla's free energy again and we have till 2025 to implement it against the opposition of conglomerates who stand to lose a lot.
In music, Giacomo Puccini wrote his operas Tosca, Madama Butterfly, and Turandot, Gustave Flaubert wrote Madame Bovary, Wagner wrote The Rhine Goldopera and Verdi’s La Traviata is still very inspiring. In fact, the Paris Opera was built when Neptune was still in Pisces.
Some historical monuments built during Neptune in Pisces include the Crystal Palacein London, the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg and more appropriate to the ocean theme, the first undersea telegraph cable between the USA and UK was laid
Everyone goes through a very stressful time when Mars makes an adverse aspect to your Neptune. During this period, your immune system is depleted and you are more prone allergic reactions, nightmares, fraud and scandals. Your body needs rest and healing now so take extra care of yourself and don't take unnecessary chances in life. Ex: Princess Diana, JFK Jr, Tiger Woods scandal.
Your body does not behave normally during a Mars-Neptune transit and you need more rest and sleep to recuperate. Avoid drugs and alcohol and sublimate this obsessive period through art or music.
On March 10, 2012, Canada endured their second tragedy in two months with the death of ski cross racer Nik Zoricic, who suffered head injuries after crashing into the nets on the side of the course near the final jump of a race in Switzerland. Ski authorities called it a "freak accident," much the same way they labeled the fatal accident of Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke, who crashed during halfpipe training two months to the day before Zoricic's accident.
Both Burke and Zoricic were 29 and going through a Mars-Neptune aspect.
Unfortunately, it is the unnecessary chances people take during their most vulnerable time that causes these events. I am really hoping that we will be able to avoid such tragedies by making everyone aware of it and use social media and our visual programs to warn them ahead of time.
There are always ways to offset an adverse theme and that is the whole purpose of astrology. A Mars-Neptune aspect makes one very obsessive but the form of obsession is your free choice. Everything you do during this transit can become a habit so just choose your habits carefully.
As you are more prone to allergic reactions now. just take more rest and plan things out beforehand. Avoid accusing people as you may come to wrong conclusions durig this transit and later on regret it. Just don't take unnecessary chances now and wait till this transit is over.
Here are the stressful dates for different age groups.
March till mid May 2012 are very stressful for those of you born between 1970 and1976, and 1929 to 1936.
June and beg July 2012 are stressful for those of you born between 1977 and 1985,and 1937 to 1942
July2012 is a scandalous period for those born between 1942 and 1949. Bill Clinton, Goerge Bush Jr., Netanyahu.
Aug will be very stressful for those born between 1950 to 1956.
End Aug till mid Oct 2012 is a dangerous time for 60s age group (Obama and Ahmadinejad of Iran). This is a nightmare period as they will be more susceptible to making mistakes or over-reacting. Mars being in Scorpio is a very vindictive theme and coincides with violence and cruelty around the world.
End Aug till mid Oct 2012 is a dangerous time for 60s age group including President Barak Obama and Iran's President Dr. Ahmadinejad. This is a nightmare period as they will be more susceptible to making mistakes or over-reacting. Mars being in Scorpio is a very vindictive theme and coincides with violence and cruelty around the world. Events in July 2012 are very critical as that is when Benjamin Netanyahu's age group will be paranoid and can make harsh decisions. We hope logic will prevail otherwise mid Aug to mid Oct 2012 could be quite violent.
Netanyahu knows that Obama, once he is elected, will break every rule and do what he wanted to do from the beginning. He will focus on bringing peace in the Middle East and focus on the happiness of the US by going against the foreign interests agenda. It is amazing how the US election is being hijacked by outside interests and the Lobby which governs both houses of the Senate. Instead of focusing on the plight of the poor and needy right here in the US, billions are spent on Afghanistan to build bases to be used against Iran, a country which has not attacked anyone in the last 500 years!
The US shifting its strategy and wanting to talk to Iran now is a clear indication of how seriously the US feels Netanyahu will try to destabilize that region. After the first week of Oct. the danger is over as Mars moves into the sign of Sagittarius, but there will be major religious tension from Oct till mid Nov.
It seems our forecast is on target now and Mitt Romney will be the nominee butObama will be re-elected (Saturn on top of his chart indicating highest achievement and public response). Obama will be much more effective in the next term as he won’t be concerned about coming back to power. We still believe that with his Head Line separate from the Life Line, he will break all rules and not fall in line with the establishment. At least the potential is there and hopefully he will be successful in doing what he really wants rather than what the Lobby wants him to do.
We don't agree with President Obama's Afghanistan policy as it seems only to be a ploy to have thousands of troops close to Iran and not for the benefit of the local people at all. The US using hypocritical Qatar and Saudi Arabia knowing fully well that they are the cause of most of the injustice in that part of the world.
They are trying to push the issue of attacking Iran because they know that as soon as the pressure of election is over, Obama will not want to go to war at all. Uranus in Aries for the next seven years guarantees that Iran will have nuclear capability but also that there is a very real danger of nuclear explosions as well.
The next date for major stroms and earthquake is around 27 Sep 2012 with the Sun, Uranus and Pluto in a t-square and Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune, and also a free floating Mars in Scorpio. Coastlines and places near the ocean are particularly vulnerable now and it is definitely not a good time to take a cruise! Jupiter in Taurus also seems to coincide with dangerous times for mining disasters and earthquakes espeically involving historical monumenrs and buildings. Jupiter is the sign of philosophy so old cathedrals, churches and other places of worship are vulnerable at this time. Jupiter is in Taurus from 5th June 2011 till 11 Jun 2012. Other planets in Taurus or fixed signs will trigger the earthquakes when they adversely aspect Jupiter in Taurus.
We jsut heard about the tragedy of this 17 year old black teenager who was shot by George Zimmerman in Florida.
Here is my astro-analysis on youtube
and here is the full article on it on our website:
As mentioned in our last issue, Jupiter Moves into Gemini from mid June 2012 till end June 2013, there will be major advances in the field of communication, novel ways of marketing and advertising and new improved ways of learning. This is an excellent time for major improvement in world literacy level. Unique ways to learn languages will be emphasized and the need for intellectual stimulation may lead to information overload and illnesses resulting from an active nervous system will increase.
This will be a great time for publishing on the internet and thousands of new eBooks from old manuscripts will be circulated. Start getting your eBook ready or convert your manuscripts into digital format for all the new mediums like iPad, Kindle etc.
As mentioned in our Feb forecast, we feel that the real estate will pick up from April till mid June 2012 as Jupiter goes through the last degrees of the sign of Taurus. However, the prices will drop after mid June so it is a better time to sell property rather than buying a house now. This especially applies to older homes and land. The lifestyle after mid June 2012 will be much faster paced and we believe it is more suitable for the condo market rather than houses. Latest telecommunication gadgets and the internet will become the norm for new houses. Virtual listings of houses and condos will become commonplace.
