Spring Equinox Predictions: March 20th 2014 – March 20th 2015
On March 20th, 2014 at 12:56:43 EDT White House, Washington, D.C., the Sun ingressed into 00°00’ Aries. According to traditional sources a horoscope cast for the moment during the time the Sun comes into Aries at the capital city of that nation, provides a comprehensive image of the archetypal energies and potentials that will likely unfold and constellate as mundane events and happenings throughout the year. This event is referred to as the Aries Solar Ingress and from this horoscope we will make the following predictions below.
Global Paradigm Shift
Part of the Global Paradigm Shift that has been underway since 2010, will be a global currency reset. Where the U.S. Dollar along with the U.S. Treasury Bond bank reserve structure will begin to rapidly collapse, as China, Russia, Iran, Brazil, India, and South Africa begin bypassing the dollar and creating bi-lateral trade, and major OPEC nations refuses to sell its oil exclusively in dollars. The global reset will essentially be a return to gold standard. Therefore we can expect gold prices which has been suppressed by the Central Banks since the 2008 financial meltdown, will begin to move upward to $2,000 an ounce in 2014.
Petrodollar Collapse Begins
Saudi Arabia will begin to dump the exclusive US Dollar buck in oil in trade deal (Petrodollar – 1975) and begin to accept the Chinese Yuan and hard assets such as Gold. a withdrawal of the “Petrodollar” standard will occur in response to another major Wall Street bank failure. Since the U.S. Treasury/Fed has no room to maneuver in any way that gives confidence to foreign bond holders, the BIS and IMF/World Bank will move the Federal Reserve’s “ultimate financial authority” out of the Fed’s hands and into the BIS and administration through IMF/World bank. As a result in the near future, we will refer to SDR’s as the new world currency (which is in fact a blended weighted currency of all the major economies) — end of the old order, the birth of the new.
Financial System Failure
The Financial Stability Board (FSB) released a list of 29 “too big to fail” (TBTF) corporations operating around the world. According to the FSB, these banks are considered to be “systemically important financial institutions” and a failure of any one of these corporations could result in “financial systemic failure.” Of the 28 corporations on the list, 17 are based in Europe, eight in the U.S., and four in Asia. A failure of any one of these banks, but especially one in the U.S., could create a bank run, further destroying the ability to provide credit and increasing the likelihood of a dollar collapse. What is most likely to create a bank failure is a derivative failure:
- Banco Santander
- Bank of America
- Bank of China
- Bank of New York Mellon
- Banque Populaire CdE
- BNP Paribas
- Credit Suisse
- Deutsche Bank
- Goldman Sachs
- Group Crédit Agricole
- ING Bank
- JPMorgan Chase
- Lloyds Banking Group
- Mitsubishi UFJ FG
- Mizuho FG
- Morgan Stanley
- Royal Bank of Scotland
- Société Générale
- State Street
- Sumitomo Mitsui FG
- Unicredit Group
- Well Fargo
The Black Box Natal Rating of the Grand Cardinal Cross Alignment in late April 2014 make stressful hits (Red) to several major banks, especially to Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, and Group Banque Populaire.
In 1985, there were more than 18,000 banks in the United States. As of today there are only 6,891 left, and that number continues to drop every single year. The six largest (too big to fail; TBTF) banks in the United States – JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have gotten 37 percent larger since the 2008 financial meltdown. Bank Of America’s total assets are more than 1.4 trillion dollars, and its total exposure to derivatives is more than 42 trillion dollars. Now, if just ONE of these TBTF banks collapse, such as Bank of America in this instance, it would create a massive rippling “domino” effect to the U.S. economy that could plunge the nation into an economic depression.
Deutsche Bank, probably the most important bank in Germany, is the most highly leveraged bank in Europe (60 to 1) and it has approximately 70 trillion dollars worth of exposure to derivatives. Deutsche Bank’s “off the charts” leverage in June of 2014, will reach 72 trillion in derivatives, or about 21 times more than the GDP of Germany. The Cardinal Grand Cross planetary alignment will make multiple hits to Deutsche Bank’s First Trade Horoscope. Indicating that Germany’s elite financial institution will be under major duress throughout the year, and could be the first major bank to collapse in the 2nd stage of the global banking crisis. However, unlike the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, in which the Western Central banks were able to contain, thanks to $16 Trillion in bailout funds injected into the banks by the Federal Reserve, a failure of Deutsche Bank would trigger a systemic banking contagion the likes of which the Western world has never seen.
Looking ahead using the Black Box Multi-Box Analysis, we can forecast by evaluate each TBTF bank horoscope using on a modified model of Donald Bradley’s siderograph technique, developed by astrologer Alphee Lavoie, which is essentially a curve based forecasting method based on transiting aspects.
Based on a 2-year window of time (March 20th 2013 – March 20th 2015) we can determine when a possible banking crisis followed by panic due to loss of confidence in the financial system. In the graph, we’re primarily interested in the last row, the one labeled Sum Activity. Green periods indicate stability, growth and asset expansion. Red periods indicate stress, panic, and asset contraction. Looking over the next 300 days in the Sum Activity row, red begins to dominate the period between May of 2014 through to 2015, indicating that another bank panic and derivative shock wave is in the realm of possibility in 2014.
The term “retirement crisis,” – in developed and emerging market nations — from France, to the United States, and even China — will go mainstream in mid-2014, as it will no longer possible for state and private institutions to able to support pensions and benefits for their aging citizenry, and as a result forcing millions of would-be baby-boomer retirees worldwide to continue to work to increasingly older ages.
Affordable Care Act
By the end of 2014 a majority of enrolled Americans will know collectively that they are not better off. The Affordable Care Act will fall short of what it promised for the American people and financially will begin implode on itself by the spring of 2015.
2014 Midterm Elections
The motto for the 2014 Midterm Elections will be: “Toss out the incumbents.” In 2014, expect more incumbent members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans alike will likely lose their seats than at any period. There is going to be a rejection of incumbents seeking reelection at an unprecedented rate.
China will attempt to curb its shadow banking and credit growth, so that it can move its economy away from being fueled by credit to one that is more sustainable and driven by consumers. However, it will not be able to effectively control local government debt, and a rise in money market rates in 2014 will likely lead to a credit crunch and slower economic growth then expected – expect major defaults by mid-Spring.
Stock Market – The Dow
The Dow will reach a high of around 17,250 before it begins a major correction starting in late May onward, and eventually falls all the way down to 7,000 over a 2 year period. Unemployment will begin to exceed 7%. However the real story will be the Underemployment Rate ( someone holding a part-time job with modest pay despite desiring full-time work), which will reach 25% nationwide. The number of young people participating in the American workforce will reach a new drastic low, and will show no sign of turning around in 2014. Many Generation Y adults in their late 20’s will quickly abandon their political idealism and begin to revolt.
More stunning and upsetting revelations on the NSA secretive spying programs will occur that will result in a “historic,” Supreme Court ruling that addresses Fourth Amendment protections in the Constitution. Expect upsetting, traumatic, and even revolutionary revelations to follow from a new set of government whistle-blowers, from America’s national security complex, that will being to pose a serious threat to the current power structure of government, and will radicalize progressive “counter-government” forces across the nation.
World Economy Crisis
The scaling back of the U.S. Federal Reserve stimulus program, combined with a Chinese growth slowdown, along with growing concerns over China’s $4.8 trillion shadow banking debt that’s further compounded by rising geopolitical tension and uncertainty, will result in a crisis among Emerging Market nations by negatively affecting the ability of developing countries to repay the high level of debt that they accrued up over the past 5 years of easy credit.
Multiple pension crises will erupt throughout America, that will require massive state bailouts, that will drown America’s taxpayers. As a result many cities can expect ‘service insolvency’ as pension costs increase. Retiring Baby Boomers will get hit directly by this crisis and many will be coerced to postpone retirement, if possible, or figure out a way to navigate this growing crisis.
The Federal Reserve’s inability to recognize the true dynamics that lead up to the 2008 financial meltdown has resulted in a re-inflated market bubble and a continuation of unfairly rewarding and recapitalizing essentially insolvent banks, that will set the stage for an even bigger crisis in 2014. However the coming financial crisis will be a valuation/collateral crisis, not a liquidity crisis.
Nationwide Home Sales Begin to Collapse: Since more than 70% of what the U.S. produces is for personal consumption, the housing market plays an integral role in the economy. The housing market was the trigger event for the financial crisis in 2008 and will be again as the year progresses: that we are in the midst of another recession within a broader depressionary trend.
Fracking will end up being the death rattle of carbon energy in that it is not only a terrible method to extract in this way for the environment, but also because it causes earthquakes. Earthquakes caused by fracking now cover the country from Texas to Ohio. The ecological damage and increasing earthquake activity throughout the nation due to fracking will awaken national awareness, and will be the tipping point that will galvanize a populist movement that will finally make non-carbon energy the priority it should be.
Senator Rand Paul
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul star will continue to rise throughout the nation as his outreach to minority and young voters begins to gain traction. By the mid-term election he will stand as the front-runner to beat in the GOP field of 2016 presidential hopefuls, and if successful will be pose a formidable challenge to the likely candidacy of Hillary Clinton.
The remainder of President Obama’s agenda will come to a stall and as a result he will suffer a dramatic blow in his job approval rating polls, as he loses the confidence and trust of the American people to lead the nation. Also, Obama will likely be facing a revolt from within his own political party. Many Democrats will begin breaking rank and to distance themselves from the President, so as to be able to pick up the pieces after the slow-motion mid-term election train wreck hits in November 2014.
