NEW!  My first predictions about the drug crisis that has recently been call a national emergency by President Trump came in 2010. It is connected to the transit of the planet Neptune through its home sign of Pisces. Tragically, the transit does not end until 2026. Are there solutions besides letting the time expire? No, although efforts will produce lots of knowledge that can be useful in the future. A generation is/will be lost. The core issue is a search for the sacred, a desperate attempt to find meaning in life. One thing that will not solve the problem is “cracking down” with incarceration, arrests, law and order solutions although this is the direction we will see increasingly enforced once Saturn moves into Capricorn and other planets start entering that sign beginning the end of 2017. There are real reasons that this emergency was created beginning with the 1990s drugging of children with mind altering substances and continuing through the fantasy that pain should be eliminated from peoples’ lives and drugs are the way to do it. These causes can certainly be addressed and resolved in the fight but I cannot hold out any hope of actual solutions and elimination of the problem before 2026.  Posted 8/11/17

Not surprisingly the increasing chaos in the White House is outlined clearly by the astrology. Unexpected outcomes and shocking upheavals continue through Weds. 8/2 and even then it’s just prologue for the dramatic upheavals through all August with two eclipses, Mercury turning retrograde and other cosmic challenges. Have NO expectation of calm descending. We won’t know what’s left standing until early September. And whatever actions are taken starting a couple days ago and through the month will bear this mark of chaos forever.  Posted 8/1/17

The appointment by the Department of Justice of Robert Mueller as a special counsel to investigate everything occurred at a most fortuitous time. Just after midnight on 5/19, the second of three major aspects between 12/16 and 11/17 occurs. It is the main positive force for the year and focuses on creative and positive solutions to large problems. Orderly change is the key phrase as Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries. posted 5/18/17

Today’s NYT: “Quandary in South Sudan: Should It Lose Its Hard-Won Independence? The five-year-old country is in woeful straits as a civil war drags on. But a proposal to create a trusteeship of outside powers is meeting resistance.” Anyone who’s heard my Oracles talks for the past couple years including this year has heard me say that South Sudan was created with cosmic energy in its birth chart that would guarantee war forever and the ONLY solution would be to dissolve the current country and start over.  posted 1/24/17

Haven’t done a “stars in the news” report lately but this story qualifies. This type of disturbance is indicated by Uranus stationing in Aries and promises to continue in various arenas through Friday.  Posted 12/27/16. http://edition.cnn.com/…/us/mall-disturbances-after-christ…/

“Is There Any Hope for Peace in South Sudan?” asks today’s NYT. I know few people know or care about South Sudan in real life, but this is a testament to the value of consulting your astrologer especially when you’re setting up a nation. In 2011 when this country was established, the planet Uranus was standing still in Aries. There was literally NO HOPE for anything but constant warfare. Here we are 5 years later and that is the case. I made this prediction at the time and then a couple years later mentioned it again as war continued. I had serious pushback from someone who claimed everything was really fine, he had in-country knowledge etc. etc. I just laughed. There is NO avoiding your stars. What to do? Let the country collapse and start over with a better star pattern.  posted 7/23/16

Comments on the Republican Convention. Staying home from the convention is a wise decision. Tremendous tension between traditional establishment and tribal emotions. Secret money deals are happening. Tone of convention hard, locked down, serious on Mon & Tue until Tue night when female energy appears and relationships seem solid – but not for long. Relationships unexpectedly explode everywhere – watch for Trump/Pence showing strain and unreliability. Pence and Trump are both Geminis so no weight, no solidity. Power tempts Pence during the convention. Things get weird Weds & Thu and may focus on electronic communications. Watch Twitter. There will certainly be flashes of ego and confidence. America will be shouted everywhere. GOP is the big loser. Its vision is shattered especially from what it once was. Deceit, low confidence, shady deals are everywhere. Nagging ego conflicts over picky details showcase the pettiness that has replaced high ideals. History will see the convention as the funeral of the GOP.  Prepared 7/17/16.

Folks who heard my Oracles lectures were not surprised by Britain’s vote to leave the European Union yesterday. As I pointed out, this year was the Saturn return for the 1958 Treaty of Rome that formed the EU and as in human lives, that cycle point requires restructuring and reinvention. If the EU is to survive in any form, it needs to use this crisis to develop something new and improved. The immediate cosmic pattern supports ignoring the fear mongering and moving forward with reform that benefits all.   posted 6/24/16

Although I’ve seen a chart for the Orlando Pulse shooter which would identify Mars in Scorpio as the trigger for his actions, I’ve not yet seen a chart for Orlando, scene of two high profile shootings in less than 48 hours. The multiple happenings have me postulating a demon cloud sweeping through. Neptune is currently stationing pushing minds already highly permeable to mass madness over the edge. “The cloud” sweeps through focusing all the general hate and craziness on a single point, in this case Orlando. I saw this happen in tiny Berkeley Springs a couple years ago with a fatal and inexplicable car crash and an equally inexplicable murder happening within a couple hours in a place where both are extremely rare.  posted 6/14/16

The first full party Congress in North Korea in 36 years started today. According to the stars which indicate epic conservative stuckness, there will be NO changes in policy, direction or leadership.  posted 5/6/16

The stars can explain this — today’s NYT points out that “None of Donald Trump’s tune changes seemed to matter much until recently. But his style – long on gut instincts, short on briefing books – has taken a toll.” Once Mars moved into Sagittarius on March 5, the general attitude on the campaign trail shifted and elevated. Sordid does make a come back though from May 27-Aug 2. Fortunately for our future, Mars is once again elevated during the actual election.  posted 4/10/16.

I started saying this in November based on the stars.  He’s the only Aquarian of sufficient stature to be considered for president and more US presidents have been Aquarians than any other sign.   Posted 4/5/16.  http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-04-04/paul-ryan-for-president

Today’s astrological “I told you so” is in the fashion realm where we have at least another two years of active outdoor wear being the hot trend with Saturn in Sagittarius as I’ve been saying since the beginning of 2015. Here’s what the NYT said: “The lines between fashion and athleticwear are increasingly blurring, and Nike is getting ready to be a major global player in both fields.”  posted 3/17/16

Apparently as the Republican establishment sniffs around looking for a viable alternative to Donald Trump, they’re floating Paul Ryan as a trial balloon suggested by today’s NYT. In all my Oracles lectures this past winter, I mentioned Ryan was the man to watch as the only Aquarian of national prominence. Of the 44 presidents, more were born under the sign of Aquarius than any other. Trump? Not surprisingly, a motor-mouth Gemini. posted 2/25/16

Headlines that Russia sees a new Cold War and the European Union is acing multiple crisis before their upcoming summit were all topics in my Oracles/Trends talks this past winter.  Know what’s going to happen and why by getting a copy of the Trends CD.   posted 2/14/16

“Republicans Turn Up Heat in Iowa, Setting Aside Good for Bad and Ugly” said today’s NYT, and Bill Clinton hits the campaign trail both as Mars enters Scorpio for the first time this year. I predicted in my Oracles 2016 talk that this Mars in Scorpio period (1/3-3/4 and again 5/27-8/1 — a total of 18 weeks!) would turn the campaigns uglier and more sordid. Both political conventions occur in late July when Mars is in Scorpio promising wheeling and dealing in dark rooms.  posted 1/5/16

Saudi Arabia has Pluto conjunct its Sun in 2016, the same aspect that occurred in Syria three years ago .  Right on schedule, the Saudis find themselves embroiled in an all-out confrontation with Iran over the longtime religious schism within Islam.  posted 1/5/16

The Prime Minister of India made a surprise visit to Pakistan on Dec. 25 when Uranus was stationing.  It being India, we can assume an astrologer was consulted. All the floods, earthquakes, landslides and fires are the darker face of Uranian disruption…. posted 12/26/15.

As the stars predicted, the Federal Reserve finally raised interest rates.  I made this prediction a year ago and will extend the prediction saying that interest rates will continue to rise through the end of 2017.  The last time Saturn was in Sagittarius as it is now (1987-89) interest rates were 17%!  It will be nice to have a better place to put money than in shoeboxes.  posted 12/17/15

Some astrology-based comments on Syria, ISIS and the recent attacks. Syria has run into its destiny which says (and I reported this in my Oracles talks for 2013) both the country and the people are to disappear. ISIS is very Neptunian which is why it is so active this week while Neptune is standing still. What does that mean? ISIS is illusory, the epitome of virtual reality. There is no physical presence, no country, no capital, faceless leadership. The powers-that-be are surely confused about how to respond to something they cannot see or touch. The old forms are disappearing in every arena. Anonymous may have the best chance of actually accomplishing something with their declaration of war against ISIS.  posted 11/17/15

Two interesting star related news items today.  1st, hours after a Mars-dominated lunar eclipse (the Moon in Aries and later Moon eclipses Uranus in Aries) NASA is scheduled to make a major announcement about a science related finding about Mars.  The other has to do with Neptune in Pisces and a prediction I’ve been making for years: the first successful trial of mind-to-mind connection via the Internet.  I keep telling folks, someday all those kids will be connecting mind-to-mind without even realizing they no longer are using their various devices.    posted 9/28/15

Since all the headlines are screaming about stock market declines in China and other challenging economic news, it seems appropriate to check with the stars. Austerity has been introduced into the mix with Jupiter entering Virgo in mid-August and staying for the next 13 months. Benefits of all sorts will come from prudence and savings and avoidance of foolish extravagance. That’s a major trend. The short-term tumult is the shift being in motion. We face the final couple weeks of Saturn in Scorpio — cleansing all that hidden, secret karma. By mid-September, Saturn enters Sagittarius for an unbroken two year stay. Vision appears and patterns begin to emerge for addressing economic austerity with something less than panic. There is an impressive 21st century future to build and it cannot occur in a healthy fashion until all eyes are focused upwards and outwards rather than on maximizing all profits in the next 24 hours (or whatever short time span you choose.) Ignore the volatility. Settle in for the long term and keep your eye on the ultimate goal. For those who are Fed watchers and obsessed with interest rates — they will go up, they always do when Saturn is in Sag. Since the shift into Sag does not occur until 9/17, the same day that Mercury goes retrograde in Libra promising disruption, I would advise the Fed board to wait until the winter meeting when the patterns are more stable before raising interest rates.   Posted 8/25/15.

The crisis in movement of people continues as Neptune in Pisces continues to dissolve boundaries.  As Neptune is stationing, the NYT reports:  “Eleven million people were uprooted by violence last year…the worst migration crisis since World War II.”  Unfortunately, the triggering transit still has nearly a decade to go….posted 6/9/15

Since the daily star pattern today has no boundaries, it seems appropriate to remind everyone of my predictions about the swirl of humanity in motion around the planet and how absurd it is to make “immigration” an issue in the USA. There is no stopping the flow. It will keep increasing for the next decade. Today’s headlines are about populations moving in Nepal, to Indonesia and Maylasia, and across the Mediterranean to Europe. Even if no one is talking about it at the moment, we know the Middle East is also awash in moving populations.  Posted 5/12/15

From today’s NYT — the triumph of Saturn in Sagittarius … and truth. “N.S.A. Collection of Bulk Call Data Is Ruled Illegal. The judges ruled that the U.S.A. Patriot Act cannot be legitimately interpreted to permit the systematic gathering of domestic calling records.” Add Tom Brady’s outing to that and we can see a glimmer of a shining vision. Posted 5/8/15

If it makes the pages of USA Today, we know it’s now mainstream. The move to virtual reality as a dominant theme of life has been a mainstay of my annual Oracles talks for more than five years. The same is true for the type of pervasive madness most recently exemplified by the German pilot who flew into a mountain. If you like being cutting edge, my Oracles talks are available on CD.       http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2015/03/27/virtual-reality-oculus-rift-facebook-vr-will-be-everywhere/70547882/

The NYT says: “Janet Yellen Isn’t Going to Raise Interest Rates Until She’s Good and Ready”…. or until the stars are right which is not until mid-September….posted 3/19/15

The disastrous slide at Yeager Airport in Charleston can be linked to the dramatic and explosive astrological aspect that peaks tomorrow afternoon. This cosmic event is the final of seven that have occurred since 2012 resulting in a variety of upheavals and systems being destroyed. This particular aspect is also linked to aviation issues connecting it to the Yeager slide. posted 3/15/15   http://wvpublic.org/post/photos-latest-yeager-airport-landslide

The previous Saturn transit through Sagittarius (1985-88) saw Iran and Iraq end their war. Today, as Saturn returns to that position, the NYT announces: “U.S. Strategy in Iraq Increasingly Relies on Iran. Iran has helped the Iraqis hold the line against Islamic State advances, analysts say, while American advisers train Iraq’s armed forces.”  posted 3/6/15.

Astrology has the explanation if not a quick solution for this reality presented in today’s NYT ” From a Private School in Cairo to ISIS Killing Fields in Syria (With Video) The West is not alone in struggling to understand why young men like Islam Yaken, raised in homes that would never condone violence, are joining the Islamic State.”  The issue is a SEARCH FOR THE SACRED, probably the most driving of all human instincts.  It takes many forms.  The period of confusion in this quest is almost over; the period of finding a vision that can drive a positive search is beginning as Neptune continues to move forward in Pisces.  Examine your own life and find the sacred.  Posted 2/19/15.

Sometimes it hurts to be right in my predictions. No…not about Brian Williams and media integrity, or about sports issues like the Little League scandal but THIS — a prediction I really wanted to be wrong. A CHOCOLATE CRISIS!!! The NYT today says: “Valentine’s Day Chocolate Will Cost More This Year, as Cocoa Prices Rise. Higher demand in Asia, difficult weather in the major cocoa-producing countries in West Africa and attacks of fungus are contributing to the price increases.”  posted 2/12/15

Mercury retrograde is really having its way with us … and more than once. First the northeast shuts down because of a blizzard and then it turns out the blizzard is not as bad as predicted. Mercury is a scamp. It even turned on its old pal Facebook which has done much to spread the gospel of Mercury and its antics, shutting down the service for millions. And we’re only half way through the period.  posted 1/27/15.

Don’t worry folks, interest rates rising is a traditional pattern when Saturn is in Sagittarius so it’s certain they will rise by Fall of 2015 or 2016 at the latest. Meanwhile, the European Union is experiencing a Saturn return to the Treaty of Rome and will endure a “passage to adulthood” crisis that may result in major changes. Life is so much easier when you know what the trends are in advance.    Posted 1/24/15.   http://gulfnews.com/business/banking/us-fed-plans-could-just-have-been-upset-by-ecb-move-1.1445524

Phew!  The warp speed of this year is showing itself in making my predictions come true almost before I make them.  The prediction? For the next two years expect breakthrough activities related to air travel and space. Plus, there were also predictions dealing with big data and the parallel worlds of virtual and real. Oh yes, and the hero as the adventuring prophet. posted 1/20/15.    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/01/20/google_spacex_tesla_talks_billion_dollar_investment/

The shift from Saturn in Scorpio to Saturn in Sagittarius promoted me to predict a dramatic move from lie worshipping to truth seeking.  Whoever imagined it would be Fox News leading the way.  posted 1/19/15.  http://news.nationalpost.com/2015/01/19/fox-news-issues-rare-on-air-apology-one-week-after-guest-claims-u-k-city-birmingham-totally-muslim/

The exposing of General Petraeus in a sex scandal launched Saturn’s transit through Scorpio and the period’s influence on secrets revealed.  Now, with Saturn moved into truth-seeking (and punishment-seeking) Sagittarius, the disgraced General is facing FBI demands for criminal charges. posted 1/10/15.   http://kdhnews.com/military/charges-recommended-against-petraeus/article_ba357906-988a-11e4-9a5c-ebe6944e43b1.html

In my Oracles 2015 talks, I’ve predicted that one of most noticeable changes with Saturn moving from Scorpio into Sagittarius is “mass amnesia.”  No one will “remember” the toxic political reality of the past couple years.  Whhaaa??? Who did that???  On Tuesday, when Saturn shifted, the NYT noted that a investigative report found the IRS auditing of Tea Party groups was not a scandal.   Whhaaa??? Who did that???  Rep Darrell Issa who has spent all his time and our money pushing these bogus attacks will suddenly “dis-remember” that they were ever so petty and hateful.  Stay tuned…we have months more of this.  posted 12/25/14

The NYT editorial board today agreed with one of my star-based predictions for 2015. The Times says: Cuba’s Economy at a Crossroads. A change in Washington’s attitude could help tip Havana toward liberalization. What I said was 2015 was the year for big changes in Cuba and it was all about money.  posted 12/15/14.      Just a day later, President Obama announced normalization of relations with Cuba and the opening of a US Embassy in Havana after decades of absence.  The media identifies a spy swap as the final deal closer — which reflects the closing period of Saturn’s transit through Scorpio, but the stars point to money as the motivator for the upcoming months.  Havana was founded in a previous Saturn transit of Sagittarius indicating life altering changes in the couple years to come.  posted 12/18/14.

As I say in my 2015 Oracles lecture: everything will have two modes: real and virtual.   Google has seen this in the surprise positive sales reaction to its minimal virtual reality headset.  posted 12/13/14.    http://thewestsidestory.net/2014/12/13/24658/google-updates-cardboard-vr-headset-app-selling-half-million-units/

Someone asked me my cosmic insights on yesterday’s election. Here’s what I see in the stars. We have less than 2 more months of Saturn in Scorpio — the lies, corruption, power manipulation (with a brief rerun in summer 2015,) then the testing ground turn to Saturn in Sagittarius and struggles/lessons learned about the vision for the next three years. The question to weigh is better a liar or a true believer. The changes don’t make for a new world for another decade. In the short term, it’s speed, ego and the potential for crusades.  posted 11/5/14

As I predicted, Jupiter is settling into Leo and the increased confidence and sense of wealth felt by people translates into improved business and spending as shown by increases in hiring and a drop in unemployment.  The article claims the Fed may raise interest rates by mid-2015.  The stars say probably fall 2015 when Saturn settles into a two year transit in expansive Sagittarius. posted 10/4/14  http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/10/04/us-usa-economy-idUSKCN0HS09020141004

The NYT reports today that household wealth is at a record high, 4 percent above the previous high in 2007.  The stars agree, as I predicted last year. With Jupiter in Leo, confidence and optimism are seeping into the public psyche and will become stronger by the end of the year when Saturn moves into Sagittarius.  Expect an increase in spending on travel and luxury  items — plus all those power clothes to match the elevated mood.  It promises to be a prosperous Christmas season.  Posted 9/20/14

It’s hard to bomb smoke and mirrors.  The stars say ISIS (or ISIL or IS) is all tied up with Neptune and the forces of illusion. It is boundariless; it is viral; it is irrational.  Even the name is vague or shifting.  There is no real way to track the beginning of something that is an illusion but I’d be willing to predict it was in April as part of the dramatic astrological configuration I called the April Apocalypse.  Here are a few quotes from that essay: ” Established forms are blown apart as original truth is sought, demanded.  Actions are taken to the brink to force dramatic change.  Fanatical power plays are the norm. Explosive releases of anger are aimed at forcing change and freedom.”  So…now what?  The April Apocalypse was structured around the 5th of 7 squares between Uranus and Pluto that have been the core of the global upheaval occurring since 2012.  The 6th occurs on 12/15/14 and is particularly explosive.  The final one is in 2015.  All this indicates that taking military action will be neither successful in the traditional sense, nor quick.   Posted: 9/12/14     http://www.rferl.org/content/cia-islamic-state-20000-fighters/26579510.html

It’s been nearly 20 years since I first predicted in my annual Oracles lecture that the evolution for the wired brains of the post 1993 children would lead to them scarcely noticing when the moment arose that they were communicating WITHOUT their devices.  http://news.discovery.com/tech/biotechnology/internet-telepathy-thoughts-transmitted-online-140903.htm

For more than 20 years, I’ve been marking predictive time from the 1993 conjunction of Uranus and Neptune especially in regards to how it’s altered the souls born since then — and imprinted everyone else.  Here’s an enlightening article about how the Internet is the external actor in this drama…..posted 8/7/14.   http://www.wired.com/2014/08/end-of-absence-how-technology-changes-our-brains-society-children/

Since 2010, Libra — the sign of marriage — has been exceptionally active in that arena resulting in remarkable societal forward movement on same sex marriage.  First, the 30 months of Saturn in Libra brought the issue solidly into cultural and political action.  There was a brief breathing space for a year while the necessary shift occurred under the surface and then with the exceptionally long  (7 month) transit of Mars through Libra (late 2013 through TODAY!) all that political effort established itself in cultural mores.  Posted 7/25/14.

The stars agree with TIME and Israeli plans on this issue.  I would predict it continues at least until the end of the year and then it picks up again in summer of 2015 before being resolved in some way.  Tunnels as the target is also right in line with the astrology.  The only action I would add given the cosmic pattern of the moment is some highly explosive and unexpected outcomes over the next three days.   posted 7/19/14  http://time.com/3005834/israel-gaza-invasion/
Today’s news headlines are star examples of the chaos and tension arising from the stationing of Saturn and Uranus within a 24 hour period.  The Malaysian plan crash almost certainly from a missile strike and the invasion of Gaza are Uranus in Aries explosive disruption while the rumor that delegates to a global conference on the HIV/AIDS issue were killed in the plane crash is Saturn in Scorpio at its most horrifying.  The invasion of Gaza is also Saturn in Scorpio as a power play of the  first order.  posted  7/18/14.

The Canadian Central Bank head who says he’s now going to talk to people rather than using computer models to generate info should consult his astrologers.  No one who heard my Oracles 2007 lectures were surprised when the economy crashed in September of that year — unless they didn’t believe me.  And they haven’t been surprised at the 7 years of twists and turns since including the economic pick-me-up that starts today and marks the final emergence into a new, thriving BUT very different global economy. posted 7/16/14.

Today’s New York Times report on men’s fashion week launch in Italy this week says: ” craftsmanship and pride stood out.”  Sounds and looks like Jupiter is gearing up for its year long transit through Leo beginning July 16.  Unless your thrift store wardrobe comes from Paris, better clean out your closet.   posted 6/26/14.

This demonstrates one more step on the road to a virtual reality world as I’ve been predicting in my Oracles lectures since 2010.  There is no stopping this tsunami until 2025 when the Neptune transit concludes.   posted 6/24/14  http://www.npr.org/blogs/ed/2014/06/23/324852340/be-a-varsity-player-in-video-games?

“The video game culture has propelled the creation of escape rooms, immersive events that require audience members to solve puzzles and influence dramatic outcomes.” This article in the Arts section of today’s NYT, is very indicative of what I’ve been predicting for the past several years about the impact of Neptune’s passage through Pisces and the rise of virtual reality.  In fact, I spoke specifically about these types of possible environments. Art has always had socio-cultural and psychological effects — this simply takes those effects to a more potent level by adding technology.  posted 6/4/14

Boundaries dissolving especially in those whose boundaries are barely formed, as with these 12 year old girls.  This is a Neptune in Pisces effect and it’s intense this weekend as Neptune stations along with Mercury in Cancer.  Irrational emotional madness is the order of the day. posted  6/3/14.   http://www.jsonline.com/news/crime/waukesha-police-2-12-year-old-girls-plotted-for-months-to-kill-friend-b99282655z1-261534171.html?ipad=y

The stars say this is a very complicated story that fits well with the complicated astrology coming up over the next week.  We can expect more news that includes dreams come true, old actions coming to the fore, vague and unclear backstory, lies and deception.  Plus, in true destined pattern, Bergdahl is 28 years old, experiencing a Saturn return when one major phase of life ends and the next begins.   posted 6/1/14   http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/06/01/bergdahl-hagel-congress/9835403/

This is an appropriate round-up for the day after Mars begins moving forward again in Libra.  By late July, when Mars finally leaves Libra after a very long 7 month transit, the same-sex marriage issue will be completely resolved.  It all began when Saturn entered Libra in late 2010.   posted 5/21/14  http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/21/justice/same-sex-marriage-state-breakdown/

In the realm of predictions about “secrets revealed,” the world may not yet know what’s happened to the missing Malyasian airplane but they sure are getting know the capacity and range of various countries’ radar. For the record, the “secrets revealed” phase has another 18 months or so to go — based on my mathematical model known as astrology….posted 3/23/14

As globalization continues its inexorable march, the lack of appropriate governing structures becomes ever more obvious.  It’s Neptune in Pisces (dissolving boundaries) vs Pluto in Capricorn (transforming structures) with Neptune currently in the driver’s seat based on the fear of yielding any national sovereignty.  posted  3/17/14 http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-03-17/the-u-dot-s-dot-ends-control-of-icann-gives-up-backing-of-the-free-speech-internet?google_editors_picks=true

In my Oracles ’14 talks, I specifically discussed as a Neptune in Pisces factor, the capacity of various social and news media to transmit emotional states including fear, anger and the positive antidotes to these states.  A recently released study agrees.  As Neptune continues its transit of Pisces over the next decade, we will see this now-documented phenomenon deliberately engaged and exploited….posted 3/16/14.    http://guardianlv.com/2014/03/facebook-transfers-contagious-emotions/

“Pakistani Taliban announces 1-month cease-fire to restart peace talks with government.” — The Taliban obviously have better astrologers than the Russians…..posted 3/1/14

More on the Ukraine —  Saturn in Scorpio stationing and turning retrograde on 3/2 indicates backroom deals and stalemate.   posted 3/1/14.

The tremendous escalation of confrontation in the Ukraine is due to warlike Mars stationing and then turning retrograde on March 1.  When Mars is in Libra, it needs a “just war.”  It needs to confront injustice.  The conflict intensifies when all sides feel they are the good guys.  If the Ukraine can keep from self destructing in the next 48 hours, it becomes possible to back away from the edge….posted 2/28/14     

With Mercury, Mars and Saturn all stationing and turning direction in Pisces, Libra and Scorpio respectively, there ‘s little or no hope for any conflict resolution.  Too much emotion and frustration.  All the ground covered in negotiations will be gone over again through mid-summer.  The good news is that the conflicts themselves will not get worse…posted 2/27/14

According to today’s NYT, the Fed misread the financial crisis. They, like the Obama Administration, need a good astrologer who could have explained it all in an hour. “The transcripts provide new insights into the debates, miscalculations and actions of the Federal Reserve in assessing and countering the financial crisis.”  The explanation?  You can read some of my posts here or listen to the lecture CD for 2008, 9 and 10.  It was all about Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Virgo: the need for transformation in several major systems especially financial and the lessons that needed learned about austerity.  With Saturn in Virgo everyone FELT poor and that made a quick recovery impossible. A year earlier the prediction was about the real estate crash — a bubble bursting.  Unfortunately, most of the lessons have yet to be learned and the institutions keep crumbling because that is the sign of the times….posted 2/22/14.

It may seem like all the recent news stories about scuttled peace agreements give lie to my predictions about spring being a good time for peace negotiations.  Frankly, I trust astrology more than the news reports.  Currently, peacemaking Mars is retrograde and Venus remains in Capricorn so folks are evaluating what relationships are worth and the active force of Mars is pushing back against the desire for peace.  I would expect the flow to begin moving forward again in mid May although with some initial flare ups while Venus is in feisty Aries.  By late May, peace agreements should fall into place since all the work will continue to be done from now until then behind the scenes.  Syria is the only hold-out since their own destiny is on a collision course with extinction and no external peace efforts can change it….posted 2/18/14.

A series of hard, explosive aspects around the Uranus/Pluto square at Easter triggers upheaval that I’ve been predicting will be driven by the growing economic inequality discussed in the linked article.   The chart for the Declaration of Independence indicates that the USA could be one of the locations where the uprisings occur….posted 2/5/14   http://www.bdlive.co.za/world/2014/01/19/inequality-will-fuel-upheavals-says-wef

Today’s news stories in the NYT are made for interpretation by the stars. Let’s start with the Olympics. The Times reports: “sports sites for the Sochi Games appeared ready on Monday, four days before the opening ceremony, but unfinished hotels and stores raised concerns the host city was cutting it close.” The stars say Mercury turns retrograde on Thursday so there is NO CHANCE things will be ready. Prepare for games marked by delays and malfunctions if not worse….posted 2/4/14

News story #2 – the Super Bowl. NYT says “the Seahawks ran away with the Super Bowl and left others to figure out how to be more like them.” That’s easy. As I predicted before the game — it’s a Pisces moon, Seahawks will win. Had it been a Sagittarian moon, I would have gone with the Broncos…..posted 2/4/14

In my Oracles lecture, I talk about aging as a crucial issue for the next decade as Pluto completes its transit through Capricorn.  This report from the Pew Foundation outlines the demographic trends towards an aging world and touches on several of the primary issues including health and economic support. posted 1/31/14   http://www.pewglobal.org/2014/01/30/attitudes-about-aging-a-global-perspective/

Another trend predicted actually happening. Virtual money. It’s a good thing I don’t need to understand the technology to “see” the trend in the stars because this whole reality? virtuality? is too complex for me. I’m still immersed in “cash makes no enemies.” posted 1/27/14     http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/bitcoin-takes-next-step-with-first-bitcoin-atm/2014/01/23/232509ec-8476-11e3-bbe5-6a2a3141e3a9_gallery.html#photo=1     

As I talk about the impact of Neptune in Pisces on the arts, I predict both the keyword of “virtual” and the immersive experience.  The stars are clear about the trend; I was not up on the specific technology but now I know.  According to the NYT, it’s all about the holodeck!  “Hollywood and computer and video game companies are working to move immersive virtual entertainment closer to reality.”  I don’t want to slow them down so I will not point out they have until 2025 to make all this a reality…posted 1/27/14

Another Oracles prediction heating up.  My major investment tip for 2014 is solar.  The burst starts in July and continues for a year.  Now is the time to get in on the ground floor.  The direction is technological breakthroughs that make the necessary equipment more efficient.  Here’s today’s new direction according to Bloomberg News: Hot Nanotubes Helping Solar Panels Capture More Sunlight…posted 1/20/14

In my Oracles ’14 talks, I’ve predicted two major trends continuing: disruption and boundaries dissolving.  The NYT had a trio of stories this morning highlighting those trends.  — Attacks by telephone spammers to overwhelm switchboards for essential public services.  Tiny antenna that steal TV signals from the air and stream them to the Internet.  Onslaught of email, fake and otherwise.  These trends continue for at least the next decade….posted 1/20/14

Obviously fueled by the extraordinary 7 month transit of Mars through Libra, Secretary of State John Kerry stated that he is not going to allow Israeli criticism deter his drive for peace.  Mars in Libra fights for peace and multi-Gemini Kerry will just keep talking until people agree…or surrender.  A potent combination for peace….posted 1/15/14

In the weeks since I’ve been doing Oracles ’14 and predicting a level of revolution among the American people (not the government) in mid to late April, I’ve been pondering exactly what triggers the uprising.  Income inequality keeps rising to the top as the cause.  This is what today’s NYT says: As Republicans and Democrats offer different prescriptions, income inequality takes on unanticipated prominence as the midterm election year begins.  I also received from a friend a e-newsletter notice from Resistance.org which targets MLK’s birthday in mid-April as the beginning of a 3-month uprising…posted 1/9/14

Today’s NYT has a headline that defines what Jupiter’s move into Leo in July says will be a tidal wave of increased personal spending on luxury items in all arenas continuing for a year.  Attention artists, retailers, homebuilders, realtors — this trend means alot to you and your planning.    “High Rollers in a Buying Mood.  A legion of buyers, buoyed by a growing economy and a soaring stock market, are shedding whatever reluctance, or self-imposed restraint, they had during the recession by entering showrooms and leaving with trophy cars.”  posted 1/2/14

A long-simmering dispute between the United States and Japan over the fate of a Marine base on Okinawa seemed to have been resolved on Friday reported the headlines in the NYT today. Another success for Mars in Libra and peacemaking….posted 12/27/13

Today’s Washington Post runs a long interview with Edward Snowden.  Snowden was drafted for whatever reason to be a major part of the cosmic mission of “secrets revealed” that began in Oct. 2012 with David Petraeus and represents a main portion of Saturn’s 3-year transit through Scorpio — the lessons of secrets being revealed. If you need help with the math — the pattern continues through fall of 2015. Build your personal firewalls. Sorry Ed. Being an agent of karma seldom is fun… posted 12/24/13

Neptune’s sojourn through Pisces, continuing for more than another decade, indicates the growing virtuality of every area of life.  While the impact on human minds can be destructive as with many of the young “shooters,” the impact on other arenas may be beneficial — or at least, instructive.  The recent release of singer Beyonce’s newest album directly over the Internet with no pre-marketing is one such case.  The NYT describes it in Neptunian terms:  Bingeing on Beyoncé: The Ripple Effect — Beyoncé’s new album and videos are innately sharable, generating a sort of ripple effect that is keeping the album front and center in the Web’s ephemeral consciousness.  posted 12/21/13

“A Political Deal in a Deeply Divided Tunisia as Islamists Agree to Yield Power”  Mars has been in Libra for about 10 days and already we’re seeing major reconciliations and agreements.  There is hope for the world if seven months of this can be fruitfully used….posted 12/17/13

The NYT headlines: “Officials Say U.S. May Never Know Extent of Snowden’s Leaks.”  I’ve been telling folks in my Oracles 2014 lecture that not only do secrets keep being revealed through the end of 2014 and then for a few months in the summer of 2015, but we don’t know ALL the  secrets of the secrets already revealed.  This Saturn in Scorpio trend will drive greater transparency…posted 12/15/13.

Kim Jong Un, young leader of North Korea, may hold the record for spectacular Saturn return.  When Saturn returns in an individual chart at 28-29, it is the passage to adulthood.   Individuals tend to make major decisions and rid themselves of influences from parents, school, and other outside forces.  They forge their own path.  Not many publicly execute their mentor/father figure.    posted 12/13/13

“Wall Street Mothers, Stay-Home Fathers” is a headline in today’s NYT.  By the time Jupiter enters Leo in July 2014, this will become a major trend instituting a year or so of exploring and pondering every aspect of fatherhood.  I’ve been predicting it in all my early Oracles ’14 lectures. …. posted 12/8/13

Today’s big news about charging school officials for cover-ups in the Steubenville high school rape case is an excellent example of Saturn in Scorpio in action — paying the price (Saturn) for sex and power actions (Scorpio..)  And. more Scorpio impact — the biggest crime is the cover-up.  Secrets revealed…posted 11/26/13

In spite of the many naysayers and purveyors of death and destruction, the stars are on the side of peace.  Beginning in early December and continuing for seven months, Mars, the god god of war, hangs out in the sign of peace and balance — a rare event.  It make take every bit of the six-months the negotiators of a deal with Iran  have given themselves but a true and lasting solution has excellent chances of success.  We can hope and pray the deal works. The esotericists claim that Jerusalem is the heart chakra of the world.  The world does not need it blasted open with rash action in the Middle East.  posted 11/25/13

Today’s NYT claims: Syria most dire refugee crisis in a generation.  For the past two years Oracles talks — and again for 2014 — I have been warning about the increasing pattern of the mass movement of people; a pattern that will continue to increase year after year as Neptune continues in Pisces.  It will be each year, the worst in 150 years.  By the time Neptune leaves Pisces in 2025, it will seem as if there are no boundaries, artificial or otherwise.  Humanity will be in a constant swirl around the planet like the wind patterns we see on weather maps.  posted 11/24/13.

Today’s Market Watch reported: “Watching the Dow Jones Industrial Average top 16,000, many investors are hoping this market is in a bubble (so they can shrewdly buy stocks at lower prices when it pops).”  Here’s what the stars say: growth continues through summer of ’14 when it bursts ahead fueled by opimistic spending from Jupiter in Leo.  The bubble will not burst until mid ’15 when Jupiter enters Virgo and Saturn enters Sagittarius.  Time your buys accordingly …and feel free to tip your astrologer…posted 11/22/13

Days after a federal judge blocked a Texas law that threatened to shut down many of the state’s abortion clinics, an appeals court said the rule should take effect while the case goes forward, reported today’s NYT.  Not surprising for a Mercury retrograde ruling.  Next time should be the charm….posted 11/1/13

Congress finally voted to re-open the government and extend the debt ceiling when the moon went into Aries.  Unfortunately, that same hot-wired, explosive moon experiences a lunar eclipse on Friday promising that many throughout the country will not take this quietly.  Expect explosive and violent reactions….posted 10/17/13.

According to today’s NYT:  “Virtual Reality Steps, Woozily, Closer to the Holodeck.  Venture capital companies are paying close attention to developers of virtual reality games and devices.”   This is just the beginning, folks.  Neptune in Pisces — no reason, no rationality but plenty of virtual reality….posted 10/14/13.

“Some 82 percent of working Americans over 50 say it is at least somewhat likely they will work for pay in retirement, according to a poll released Monday by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.”  I began predicting this in annual Oracles talks for at least a decade…posted 10/14/13.

What’s to say about the continued power struggles in Washington than it’s all about Saturn in Scorpio and lessons of the right use of power.  These are lessons obviously everyone needs to learn. Irrationality is the modus operandi for the exercises and people’s reactions to them.  posted 10/8

Someone asked about the potential closing down of the federal government today.  That demands consulting several charts for the USA.  The chart for the Republican Party cast for 2/20/1854.  With four planets in Pisces, including Neptune, the GOP is cast in illusion and is dissolving.  It continues through AT LEAST 2020.  There is no knowing what will emer
