2016 – 2017 Predictions
World Predictions 2015 – 2016
The peak of the Cardinal Climax is coming to an close. It has been an extremely difficult time for many people who lost their jobs, their homes, their businesses. Many went through divorces and separations while others endured natural disasters. It has been a very harsh time.
We’ve seen governments get stronger while the voice of the people has grown louder with riots, demonstrations, strikes and widespread unrest.
We are now entering a transitional period where some of this harshness can dissolve and our earth, our bodies and our souls can regenerate towards a new consciousness, a new era.
It will probably take another 5 years for this to complete until the Capricorn Climax in 2020 when Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in Capricorn. This is the point at which serious structures can be implemented. In the meantime, we have choices to make – personally and globally, that can transform our world for the better and make us proud to call ourselves human beings.
MUTABLE ENERGIES – THE WINDS OF CHANGE
With several planets in mutable signs, 2015 is a year when THINGS CAN BEGIN TO CHANGE, especially things that have been stuck for a very long time.
It’s also going to mean more uncertainty. We will have to learn how to improvise and how to become more creative and innovative.
Venus and Mars are in alignment many times during this year which means that there will be opportunities for consensus. Venus softens the effect of Mars and wants to bring peace.
There will be the opportunity for opposing factions to come together, for more compassion and tolerance in our world.
With the USA’s progressed Sun in Pisces, gradually joining transiting Neptune over the next 3 years, this could mark a significant change in the psyche of America. Instead of being a military superpower, it can become a diplomatic, peace-initiating country setting a powerful example of unity to the rest of the world.
We’ve been living under a Cardinal influence for the last seven years. The Cardinal signs have a vertical vibration, ordering from the top down,
We are moving into Mutable energy which moves laterally, reaching out from side to side.
Flexibility will be vital for survival. Can you be like a tree that is grounded with roots in the ground, but whose leaves and branches sway effortlessly in the wind?
JUPITER IN VIRGO
With Jupiter in Virgo in its detriment from August, material expansion and prosperity can be limited. If you have this placement in your natal chart, you can probably make something out of nothing.
It’s very important to think and plan ahead now. Many will continue to have tight finances. Millions will be unemployed and we will be forced to find more meaning in our lives beyond money and earthly riches. A new drive towards selflessness and spirituality will begin to gather speed. Leaders devoted to helping the sick and the poor will emerge.
Young people with a huge purpose will appear on the world stage. For example, at just 17, Malala Yousafzai is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner as a result of her heroic activism for every child’s right to receive an education.
Because Virgo rules health, and especially natural healing, we will find cures for diseases that have been with us for eons. We’ll discover that we don’t need all the artificial things we have been living with. We can have increased life expectancy and health for many hundreds of years.
Listed are the areas that will likely experience growth during this transit from August 2015 until September 2017:
Healthy eating, raw foods, pure foods, healthy living, healthy thinking
Energy medicine, nutrition, preventative health and wellness
Rejuvenation techniques, plastic surgery and anything involving anti-aging.
Perfection of health techniques e.g. micro surgery, nano-surgery, non-invasive surgeries, robotics, stem cell transplantation, digital health delivery
Disaster and survival preparedness
3D printing – e.g. print a house in a day
Software developers, mobile apps, sensors, translation and language services
Micro grid conversion – national grids to micro grids
Digital forensics: retrieving information from devices and networks, tracking down cyber criminals
Animals, especially pet care and cyber pets
Battery longevity increased
Robotics for cleaning
The cleaning industry: cleaning water, cleaning energy, cleaning cells,
Bacteria, infection and our understanding of germs and contagion
Water harvesting i.e. houses that generate their own water supply extracting water from air. Steel pipes being replaced with air pipes
SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS
With Saturn in Sagittarius, there will be greater freedom around your place of work as well as finding your true vocation. Many people will relocate to a wonderful climate where it’s inexpensive to live and work on the internet. Jupiter in Virgo will encourage living with much less but enjoying a more natural and nourishing lifestyle.
For more detail about Saturn in Sagittarius, refer to my article:
Increased knowledge, more exploration, moving away from earth to try to find solutions outside ourselves for our planet
VIRUSES, MENTAL HEALTH
With the square from Saturn to Neptune, we could see the spread of contagious diseases. Neptune doesn’t respect boundaries and in difficult aspect to Saturn, outbreaks could be difficult to contain. Airports may be shut down, people may be afraid to leave the house to go to work or to go and buy anything. Chances are cases of Ebola continue to rise.
We can turn this around by focusing on being grateful and appreciating what we do have in our lives and not allowing ourselves to be sucked into irrational fears, phobias or anxieties, many of which are triggered by the mainstream media.
Extremes of weather are likely: very hot, very cold, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, blizzards, tornadoes and especially water-related weather events such as droughts, wildfires, tsunamis, flooding, another large iceberg falling into the sea.
Although they are looking over-inflated and due for imminent correction, but they can continue to grow this year especially while Jupiter is in Leo until August. Once Jupiter changes signs and becomes inconjunct with Saturn in Sagittarius, this could indicate sharp drops.
GOLD AND SILVER
Greater fluctuations – towards the end of the year more significant rises as people see that the economy is still worsening. According to Ray Merriman, Financial Astrologer, if the price goes above $1350 the trend will be upwards. If it doesn’t reach $1350, be prepared for a downward movement. Expect more deceit, lies, debts, defaults, denials, delusions, manipulations
In all areas, worldwide manipulation will continue: stock markets, foreign exchange, interest rates, commodities, real estate and of course gold.
Banks will continue to be unaccountable: recently five big banks were fined billions regarding foreign exchange rigging, but still no one takes responsibility and they still don’t want to be regulated.
In the long run, gold will go up. Don’t lose faith and if you have gold, don’t be tempted to sell.
PREPARE: Stock up on food, bottled water, dried goods, sanitisers, first-aid kits, medicines, warm clothes, backup power source. Even if there is no emergency, it’s good idea to do this now because prices are likely to increase this year.
Take full responsibility for your health and learn as much as you can about it. Study healing, herbs, nutrition and train your mind so that you can keep yourself healthy during these times of transition. Your health will truly be your wealth in every sense of the word.
Jupiter in Virgo extends to the health of our Mother Earth. She too has gone through tremendous birthing pains with us during this Cardinal Climax. This will be an opportunity to find other ways of finding clean energy without fracking and damaging our planet. Virgo is an ingenious sign and we can use this energy to use advances in science and nanotechnology to provide us with the power that we need.
Focus on connecting with like-minded people and work with the power of prayer. We are going to witness many miracles the more we work together. Things can change in a heartbeat that used to take decades to accomplish.
I’m going to close with some of the words of a famous Libran who had Venus in Virgo, John Lennon, who wrote:
So this is Christmas
What have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun..
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young.
A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear…..
His motto was: THINK PEACE, ACT PEACE, SPREAD PEACE
Let’s hope that the world is now ready for his message.
Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Loving and Peaceful New Year.
Astrology Predictions 2015 – 2016
Astrology Predictions for 2014-2015
With the Cardinal Climax still very active this year, I am anticipating 2014 to be a year of sudden and powerful changes both globally and personally. The Cardinal Climax began in 2008 which was the beginning is perhaps one of the most significant astrological configurations that will ever affect us in our lifetime.
As we can see, there have been huge world changes since then.
Let me outline just a few of them:
- The Central Banks have more power than ever before
- The Federal Reserve brought down interest rates to almost 0%
- Quantitative Easing or money-printing has become the new norm
- Disputes over taxes and tax reforms have escalated
- Movements to unseat leaders continue, including the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak in Egypt and the stepping down of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya
- Cyber-spying is rampant with the revelations that the NSA has been regularly unlawfully spying on its citizens
- We’ve seen earth changes escalate with earthquakes and tsunamis causing whole continents to shift
What does the future look like as we near the end of the Cardinal Climax?
I see two diametrically opposed scenarios playing out:
– Worldwide debt reaches its limit, the financial system panics and the stock market crashes
– Governments shut down and default on their debts
– Leaders in business, banking and government start to behave with transparency instead of secrecy, working hard to restore peoples’ trust in them
– Political leaders make compromises to reduce debt levels
– Businesses are rewarded for hiring people and not penalized
It could go either way. There could be a turnaround from the oppressive economic activities of the last 6 years or an escalation of the same practices.
With 3 planets going retrograde one after the other from the beginning of 2014, (Venus retrograde during January, Mercury retrograde in February, and Mars retrograde from March until May), I am anticipating leaders will change their minds quickly, bankers will change their policies unexpectedly, markets will reverse because of greater uncertainty.
As I predicted last year, with transiting Neptune square to his natal Moon, there is the possibility of scandal, deception and misleading behaviour and his trustworthiness could be put into question. There could be damage to his reputation and he needs to make sure that he does everything above board.
This aspect is a hard one because the Moon represents his public image. Not just Americans feel betrayed by him, but also Germany, Israel, Saudi Arabia, to name but a few, by his reversals and failure to communicate with them.
Transiting Jupiter will be conjunct his Sun in September 2014. This could be a high point in his career, but it could also mean that he goes to extremes. His reputation could be severely tarnished especially when Saturn is opposite his natal Moon and square to natal Pluto in 2015.
The main thing is that he needs to be honest. If he can do this, he will be able to salvage his reputation. If not, he will fall from grace and leave office with his reputation in tatters.
I predicted that the stock market would crash in 2013 and I was wrong. I had failed to understand the powerful impact of Pluto in Capricorn on Central Banking intervention in the financial markets. I didn’t realise it would distort the markets to such a degree. I had no idea how far and how deeply the powers that be could manipulate the markets. With the strong influence of Pluto in Capricorn in mutual reception to Saturn in Scorpio, this had led to the infinite printing of money out of thin air. This looks set to continue at least for the next year or so indicating that the stock markets are set to rise for the foreseeable future.
What to invest in and what to avoid:
Jupiter moves back and forth between Cancer and Leo in 2014. The sign Jupiter is in shows the stock sectors more likely to outperform the general market.
Jupiter in Cancer until July 16th, 2014 indicates the stock sectors that are likely to benefit are: housing, hotels, motels, restaurants, anything connected with families and homes, food, drink, caretaking.
Jupiter in Leo from July 17th 2014 until August 11th 2015 favours children’s games and toys, games, gaming companies, leisure, entertainment industry, gambling, anything connected to children, gold mining, romance, love and the dating industry.
The position of Saturn tends to show those sectors that will decline in price. With Saturn in Scorpio until almost the end of 2014, the sectors most likely to be affected by declines are: banks, insurance companies, investment companies, security companies, waste management, funeral services, oil and gas companies, medical and surgical suppliers.
As long as the Fed continues to intervene in financial markets, stock prices will increase. I doubt they will stop QE in the forseeable future, so stocks are likely to continue rising. If the Dow Jones Index falls below 13000, this could mark a bearish shift in the market.
Gold and Silver
The Federal Reserve may taper its bond and securities purchases, thus pushing up interest rates and resulting in the falling of the price of gold.
If, however, we see increasing political upheaval and a greater social unrest, which I am anticipating, this would support a rise in the price of gold.
With Jupiter in Cancer and in Leo, which represent silver and gold respectively, and with Mars going into Scorpio from July 25th until September 13th, 2014, this could be a time of a strong rally for precious metals since Mars in Scorpio is a good predictor of a surge in the price of gold and silver.
In the long run, however, gold and silver prices will soar. As to exactly when, depends on how long the manipulators can control the markets. Once there is a breakdown in trust and a market panic, everyone will turn to gold. Right now it is a bargain. If you have any spare money, buy a small amount of both gold and silver. Keep buying more each time the price dips. At some point, I am still confident that gold will trade above $3000 USD an ounce and silver will be at $100 per ounce.
I predicted last year that with so many planets in water signs that we would see flooding, heavy rains, tornadoes, and great destruction from water. We saw flooding in so many places around the world: in Colorado, throughout much of Europe, in Canada, the devastating floods in Jakarta, Indonesia, in Thailand, and more recently, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, to name but a few.
With Jupiter in Cancer for almost 7 months of the year, Saturn still in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, I am anticipating more issues around water and flooding again this year.
With Jupiter in Leo from July 16th, especially with the square to Saturn in Scorpio, I think this could result in extreme heat, widespread fires, and heat in areas where it is least expected.
With Uranus playing such a central role in Aries triggering the Cardinal Cross, I anticipate extreme temperature changes, earthquakes, tsunamis, power outages and general weather and earth changes.
During Mars Retrograde from March 2nd until May 20th is not the best time to start something new e.g. a job, a house move.
It is not a good time to initiate a dispute as the person who is the aggressor usually loses.
Mars rules surgery so if you have any elective surgery, try to schedule it before or after the Mars retrograde.
This will be a wonderful time for people in the repair business, especially anything connected with mechanical or technical breakdowns. So many people’s systems will break down at this time and their services will be in great demand.

During these tumultuous times of the Cardinal Climax we have a unique opportunity to bring about personal and global changes that will change our world for the better.
These difficult aspects can help to bring about much-needed changes as we cannot continue to destroy our planet as we have been doing. The trine between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn is still in play, giving us a window of opportunity to create the kind of world where love and peace prevail.
Happy New Year!
