Many warm wishes for a Blessed Winter Solstice, Happy Holiday Season,
Merry Christmas,Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa & Happy New Year of 2012!
The Winter Solstice on
December 21st is a time of celebration of the return of the light in many
cultures. As we collectively prepare for the year 2012,
I pray for your enlightening and enlivening transition to the higher age we are
about to enter. You will
have the opportunity to grow and expand in 2012, and to learn about your
unrealized potential. Nothing will happen that you do not have the tools to
deal with. The upcoming
changes will help you access deep resources of energy and resilience within
yourself, and will help you become even more flexible, creative, adaptable,
strong and wise.
In this time of dynamic change, multiple outcomes are possible – depending
upon our united intention. We have the chance to collectively work together,
pray for each other and cooperatively achieve greater peace and harmony. Or we
may compete for resources, potentially creating limitation and lack for some
and over-abundance for others. There truly will be enough for everyone – if we
work together. Cooperation is key to a shared, positive outcome.
Periods of enlightenment and change are often preceded by periods of doubt and
strain as we work to separate what to bring forward from what to discard. An
exciting adventure awaits, but a lot of thought goes into deciding what to
bring with us and what to let go. It’s a lot easier to travel light than
weighted down. Similarly, you are better off releasing what you don’t need
rather than holding on to what is non-essential. “We’re only going to lose the stuff we don’t
need,” said a local savant in the town where I live,
Encinitas, California, in discussing 2012.
As you undergo a quickening of your thoughts and activities in response to
planetary changes, you will concurrently evolve neurologically to handle the
quicker pace of life. DNA also has been shown to evolve and mutate, even after
birth. And yes, the natural world around you will reflect a similar degree of
transformation. Upheavals in nature will mirror the transition, the
purification and the turmoil that people on the planet are undergoing.
But please note, most disruptions caused by the world in transition in 2012
will last days rather than weeks. So please don’t let dire predictions frighten
you. As long as you maintain your connection to your soul and Spirit, you will
receive the protection and guidance you require. Examples of the power of prayer abound, where
neighborhoods, houses, or individuals have been spared the devastation of
earthquakes, tornadoes, fires, or even tsunamis because of the accumulated
power of spiritual practice and prayer. Remember, there are no safe places,
only safe people.
This 2012 Forecast is
the culmination of several decades of my astrological and spiritual work. I am
personally awestruck by all that lies ahead of us – both the potentials and the
pitfalls. That is why being mindful of our thoughts is so important. Due to celestial changes that are causing a
quickening in the speed with which our thoughts will manifest in outward form, our collective thoughts will be a
deciding factor in the times that lie ahead. The positive quality of our
thoughts and prayers will have a positive impact. And unfortunately, the
negative quality of our thoughts will have a similarly rapid negative impact.
So, it is important to continue to pray for the highest good for yourselves,
for others, and for our world.
There will be plenty of opportunities to make a positive difference on the
upward journey we are making – to lend a helping hand, to practice gratitude,
to send out peaceful, positive thoughts and prayers while in a meditative or
prayerful state, and to simplify your lives to focus on what is truly
I will be sending
periodic updates throughout 2012 in my seasonal newsletters. This Yearly
Forecast is a bit more complex and longer than the average newsletter, so
it may not be a quick read. You may want to print out this forecast and
assimilate it over time, by reading one section at a time, or more than once.
There are many valuable lessons and turning points in the time that lies ahead,
so contemplate carefully the options available.
abundance and goodness flow more easily into upturned palms (as we do in a
state of meditation and surrender to Spirit) than into clenched fists (as we do
when we are in a fighting pose).
So keep your palms upturned and your eyes to the heavens. If you feel at a
crossroads, the shortest distance between a problem and the “soulution” is the
distance between your knees and the floor.

Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, 1859
Charles Dickens wrote the above passage more than 150 years ago, in a year when
solar storms rivaled the intense solar activity produced by our sun today. He
also wrote at a time when the United States was on the brink of a four-year
civil war. The planets were nearly as polarized then as they are now. The
largest solar flare in recorded history was seen that year, so bright that its
glow awakened gold miners in the Rocky Mountains in the middle of the night,
who began preparing breakfast because they thought it was morning. A similar
wave of solar storms, solar flares, sunspots and intense planetary activity,
radiation, and disruptions to the magnetic field of the earth have already
begun and are anticipated to increase in 2012. So, we have much in common with
the spirit of Dickens’ quote, which could well apply to the times we are now
entering – the best of times and the worst of times.
- If you focus on spiritual growth, helping
others, letting go of what you don’t need, and become non-attached to
having things your way – or the way they had been in the past – you will
experience a powerful period of personal evolution and personal peace,
harmony and happiness.
- Conversely, if you are attached to having
things your way, or the way they “used to be,” or if you think of yourself
only without considering the good of others, or focus on material
acquisitions over the human heart, you will feel dismayed by the coming
We are entering a time of contrasts – between unprecedented (in our lifetimes)
technological advancements versus increasingly dysfunctional governmental
bodies around the world, a sputtering global economy, and schizophrenic weather
patterns that vacillate from unseasonable heat to unreasonable cold.
A Chinese parable aptly portrays a way to cope with the time period we are
about to enter. A man asked a wise teacher about the difference between heaven
and hell. The wise teacher showed the man a vision of hell – a sumptuous feast
on a lovely table in a beautiful room. It didn’t look too bad, the man thought,
until he realized that the people were only given 12-foot long chopsticks with
which to eat. No one could partake of the feast because their chopsticks were
too long to reach their mouths. Next, the wise man led his student to a vision
of heaven. There was the same sumptuous feast on a lovely table in a beautiful
room. And lo and behold – the same 12-foot chopsticks. The student was
perplexed ... until he saw the people in heaven feeding each other with their
12-foot-long eating utensils.
The same principle will hold true in the coming times. If you help others and
share what you have, your needs will be taken care of. If you hoard, think
about yourself only, or hold back assistance, you will be like the people with
the 12-foot chopsticks who could not enjoy their bounty.
The Mayan Calendar
The Mayan calendar predicted that 2012 would be the end of time. But 2012
is actually the end of time as we know it – all that will be ending will be
ineffective, old ways of thinking and living. Ultimately, the surge of
planetary activity we are about to witness will lead you to a more evolved way
of being with greater dimensions of thinking and feeling inspired by your
higher self. It is important to remind yourself not to fear the unknown or the
unexpected, but to know that a higher divine plan is unfolding in a way that is
for the highest good of all. We are entering a time of greater cooperation
between peoples and nations, despite appearances to the contrary.
Prior to a significant leap in consciousness, a certain portion of the
population will tend to hold tighter to past patterns, and these collective
thoughts and patterns will actually re-invigorate past negative thoughts and
karma. It is very important to embrace the changes that are coming – because
they ultimately represent a higher state of mind than the one we are now
There are four stages of human evolution.
- Stage 1 is the caveman.
- Stage 2 is the tribal, the stage we are
living in now, where people who are alike band together to help each other
– but do not help members of other “tribes,” who can be members of other
communities, nations or races.
- Stage 3 is the individual stage, which we
are collectively entering. While it may appear in the individual stage
that people are more self-centered (witness the self-absorption reflected
by personal electronics such as the iPhone, iPod, iPad and others), people
are communicating with others around the globe, creating the foundation
for Stage 4.
- Stage 4 is the collective stage, where
all realize their interconnectedness and live harmoniously together as one
united people on one united planet.
Indian Yogi and Spiritual Teacher Paramahansa Yogananda wrote in “Where
There is Light:”
- I believe a time will come when in
greater understanding we shall have no boundaries anymore. We shall call
the earth our country; and we shall, by a process of justice and
international assembly, distribute unselfishly the goods of the world
according to the needs of the people. But equality cannot be established
by force; it must come from the heart ... We must start now with
ourselves. We should try to be like the divine ones who have come on earth
again and again to show us the way. By loving each other and keeping our
understanding clear, as they taught and exemplified, peace can come.
Purification of Earth
& Its Inhabitants
Between now and the
period of peace and harmony that will eventually prevail will be a time of
great cleansing and purification of the earth – on a physical and mental level.
Essentially, what has gone down – will come up. Already, you are seeing an
increase in volcanic and seismic activity around the planet, which naturally
brings hidden and repressed energies, not to mention physical substances such
as ash, minerals, and gems from below the earth, to the surface. This is a
necessary step in re-balancing the earth in preparation for the next stage of
evolution. In tandem with the bringing into the open of that which has been
buried are a record number of archeological discoveries, unearthed fossils, and
the discovery of buried treasure under the earth and at the bottom of the
oceans. Already we have seen priceless treasures unearthed beneath temples in
India and Tibet, the discovery of fossils previously unknown in Yellowstone, and
the discovery of the bones of large sea mammals under the earth in San Diego
County. These earthly phenomena are a reflection of our reconciliation with our
Manmade disruptions to
the earth’s surface also have escalated – through drilling for oil and natural
gas on land and in oceans, an upswing in the number of explosives hitting the
earth’s surface due to wars and unrest around the globe, and the greater role
of transportation that collectively creates earth-shaking vibrations and more
pollution. Add to that the enormous increase in the world’s population from 2.5
billion in 1950 to nearly 7 billion in 2012. The earth is not a solid, stable
mass suspended in space, but a constantly moving and re-shaping entity in
rotation and orbit around the sun. Our sun and solar system also are in dynamic
motion, continually revolving around – and moving toward and away from – a
central point in the galaxy known as the Galactic Center. When our solar system
is moving toward the Galactic Center, which it is now doing, consciousness
rises, giving birth to a period of higher
awareness, where spirituality reigns and people become aware of the creative
power of their thoughts and the finer forces of electricity and magnetism.
Cycle of the Ages
The earth naturally goes through periods of expansion of consciousness
followed by periods of contraction of awareness as the solar system continually
moves toward and away from the Galactic Center in 24,000-year cycles. Hindu
sages discovered ages ago that when our solar system moves toward the Galactic
Center for 12,000 years, consciousness rises for those 12,000 years. This is
followed by a 12,000-year downward cycle, in which awareness declines, when the
earth and its solar system move away from the Galactic Center. These
alternating 12,000-year cycles represent periods of humanity’s awakening or
falling back to sleep. During
the 12,000-year descending cycle, a period from which we have just emerged,
consciousness descends to awareness of material reality only, with little or no
awareness of the power of unseen forces such as prayer, thought, electricity
and magnetism. We are currently
little more than 1,500 years into a 12,000-year upward cycle, with the lowest
point having been reached in 499 AD. So, we are just at the beginning of a
tremendous upswing in human consciousness and awakening. (For a more in-depth explanation, please
see “The Holy Science,” by Swami Sri Yukteswar, 1894, published by
Shift of Geo-Magnetic Poles
As a natural by-product of our
collective shift to a higher age, the axis of the earth naturally shifts to
align with one of the brightest stars in the heavens, called Sirius. During the
descending cycle from which we are emerging, the axis of the earth was aligned
with a duller star known as Alpha Draconis. While the axis of the earth is
continually moving, it is now moving at an acceleratingpace toward
Sirius. This movement alone – and it is not the only movement in the solar
system at this time – is enough to create disruptions in the stability of the
earth’s magnetic field. The pyramids in ancient Egypt were aligned with each of
these stars so the ancients could track the shifting position of the earth’s
axis. The year 2012 marks the time when the shift from alignment with Alpha
Draconis to alignment with Sirius will accelerate to reach critical mass. Scientists have discovered that the magnetic
north pole of the earth has been shifting at an accelerating rate since the
year 2000, so that magnetic north, which had been over Canada, is now over
Russia – and is continuing to move at a rapid rate.
Reversal of Geo-Magnetic Poles
In addition to the natural, and now accelerating, shift of the earth’s
axis, is another phenomenon – called the reversal of the earth’s magnetic
poles. The pole reversal is a secondary and less predictable phenomenon that is
a response to human activity and collective thoughts. Scientists have yet to
discover a regularity to the pattern of the geo-magnetic pole reversal, which
occurs every 500,000 to several millions years, and appears to be happening
now, simultaneous with the natural shift in the earth’s axis.
Decline in Magnetic Resonance of Geo-Magnetic Poles
Scientists have discovered that the geo-magnetic field of the earth – the
force that holds the earth stable in its orbit – also has been declining in
power (magnetic resonance) at an accelerating rate, by more than 10%, since
1998. The geo-magnetic field
is responsible for protecting the earth from the rays of the sun or other
harmful planetary radiation, it protects the earth’s inhabitants and nature
from disease, and it holds the poles of the earth in place. The geo-magnetic
field also protects the earth from drastic movement or seismic activity. The
magnetic resonance of the earth declines due to humans’ negative thoughts and actions, which also erode
the positive magnetic vibration that naturally emanates from the human heart.
The earth’s magnetic resonance also declines due toincreased use of electronics and other
wireless signals that disrupt the earth’s magnetic field. And pollution and
toxins that naturally eat away the protective layer around the earth also
contribute to a decline in the earth’s magnetic resonance. Consequently, the earth becomes unbalanced and its poles
become unstable. The result of these scientific phenomena are a weakening of
the magnetic poles and a potential reversal of polarity to bring the earth back
Another natural by-product of the decline in force of the geo-magnetic
field and consequent reversal in polarity is an escalation in the number of
earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, high winds, tsunamis, volcanoes, fires, weather pattern disruptions, and a higher incidence of
immune disorders among people, animals and plants. The decline in magnetic
resonance of the earth’s field combined with the increased use of electricity
and wireless signals adequately explains as-yet unexplained phenomena such as
the vast number of deaths of honey bees (smallest creatures are affected first)
to the increase in the incidence of immune disorders and cancer among humans
and decreased output of agricultural crops.
No, We Will Not Be Flipped Upside Down in Space
For those who are wondering if the reversal of the magnetic poles of the
earth means that we will be flipped upside down as we move through space, this
will not be the case. Just
as a magnet has a north and a south pole, so too does the earth have a magnetic
field with a north and south pole.During a magnetic pole reversal, the north (positive) pole will
become the south (negative) pole, and vice versa. But this does not indicate a
physical shift, simply a shift in magnetic resonance. As with a magnet,
positive energy is pulled toward the north pole and negative energy is released
through the south pole. Typically,
the north pole of a magnet is associated with accumulating energy (also
financial assets) whereas the south pole, is associated with releasing energy,
So, if the north pole reverses and occupies the location currently occupied by
the south pole, positive energy will be pulled toward what is now the southern
hemisphere. Concurrently, the south pole will occupy the vicinity currently
occupied by the north pole, and therefore, negative energy will be released
from what is now the northern hemisphere.
lifetimes – and much of recorded history - those living in the northern
hemisphere have benefited from the positive pull of the geo-magnetic north
pole. This positive
pull will be transferred to the southern hemisphere if the pole reversal
occurs. So as residents of the northern hemisphere, it will be important to
cultivate peaceful, positive relations with our southern neighbors, who will be
gaining in magnetic force, and who may well be inclined to share their
abundance with their northern neighbors more than has been the case when the
poles – and roles – have been reversed.
How Long a Magnetic Pole Reversal Lasts
It is not known how
long it takes for a geo-magnetic pole reversal to occur, but many scientists
speculate that the momentum for the reversal builds over a number of years, as
it has been doing. When the earth’s geo-magnetic resonance decreases
sufficiently and critical mass is reached, as is predicted for 2012, the poles
will reverse very quickly, within a matter of days, during which time we will
feel a bit disoriented, and anything that relies upon electromagnetic energy,
such as the electric grid, satellites or communications, will be temporarily disrupted.
Given that the earth and its oceans are but a reflection of the changing metaphysical
consciousness of the earth’s inhabitants, shifts in human activity and consciousness are naturally
accompanied bychanges to the earth
itself – not to end life on earth, but to bring life on earth back to alignment
with the principles of its Creator. While we are moving toward a higher age of greater alignment
with Spirit, we also are facing the karmic remnants of our collective past – a
responsibility we collectively share as residents of the planet.
Paramahansa Yogananda explains in “Where There is Light” that upheavals in
nature actually are reflections of the cumulative thoughts and activities of
- “The sudden cataclysms that occur in nature,
creating havoc and mass injury, are not “acts of God.” Such disasters
result from the thoughts and actions of man. Wherever the world’s
vibratory balance of good and evil is disturbed by an accumulation of
harmful vibrations, the result of man’s wrong thinking and wrong
doing, you will see devastation ...
- “Wars are brought about not by fateful
divine action but by widespread material selfishness. Banish selfishness –
individual, industrial, political, national – and you will have no more
- “Modern chaotic conditions all over the
world are the result of living by ungodly ideals. Individuals and
nations can be protected from utter destruction if they live by heavenly
ideals of brotherhood, industrial cooperation, and international exchange
of earthly goods and experiences.”
Power of Prayer
also explains that prayer is an effective
antidote to the coming potentialchanges, even if these changes
would have otherwise been a
karmic result of our collective past thoughts and actions.
- “Most men consider the course of events
as natural and inevitable. They little know what radical changes are
possible through prayer ... Imagination can be materialized. When you
develop spiritually, you can materialize your thoughts ... if you hold
your mind to one-pointed concentration on the image of what you want to
achieve ... And if you apply strong will power to realizing that vision,
ultimately it will manifest – healings can be effected, successes
attained, disasters in your environment lessened or avoided,
seemingly impossible needs or worthy wishes fulfilled.”
So, there is much we can do to prepare for and alleviate the impact of the
coming changes in 2012.
In 1991, Gordon Michael Scallion popularized a map of the world in which
much of the current land-mass would be under water, California was to sink
under the ocean and oceanfront property could be found in Colorado. This was to
have begun in 1998. Perhaps it is our collective positive thoughts and prayers
that have prevented that cataclysm from taking place at least for 14 years
beyond predictions. Hopefully, we will be able to continue to stave off mass
So, please visualize and pray for peace, harmony, safety, security – and
whatever may be needed – for everyone on the entire planet!!
In this spirit, the following are:
10 Suggestions for Raising Your Magnetic Resonance to Stay Aligned with Your
Soul and Spirit in 2012 and Beyond:
- Focus on your heart. The energy of your
heart is 5,000 times more powerful than that of your other organs,
including your brain. A strong awareness of your heart, of giving, of
charity, of compassion, of empathy, will raise your magnetic resonance and
guide you to the right people and places to be safe in 2012 and beyond.
- Meditate. Focus on your spiritual eye in the center
of your forehead, become aware of your breathing and inwardly chant Om. This activity will align you with
your soul and Spirit and raise your personal magnetic resonance so all of
your needs are fulfilled.
- Think positive thoughts. Positive
thinking raises your magnetic resonance and attracts you to – and to you –
the positive outcome to which you devote your energy.
- Visualize what you want to create – and
you will electromagnetically attract the object of your visualization.
- Pray. Your prayers for yourself and
others raise your magnetic resonance and increase the magnetic field of
the person you are praying for – and the planet as a whole.
- Affirm. Affirm in your mind repeatedly
throughout the day the positive reality you envision for yourself and
- Give as much as you can. Charity opens
the way for more abundance to come to you.
- Practice gratitude. Gratitude opens the
way for more of the quality you are thankful for to come to you.
- Raise your magnetic resonance through
physical methods – get plenty of sunshine, clean water, fresh fruits and
vegetables, and feel the beneficial effects of negative ions (positive
energy) from moving water, rivers, oceans, waterfalls, or even rain –
God’s way of cleaning the earth to bring positive energy.
- Simplify. Lower your expectations,
especially the unrealistic ones. Focus on what is important. Let go of the
that everything will be okay. No matter what happens, nothing will happen that
you can’t handle, and nothing that isn’t supposed to come into your life can
come if you live in alignment with your soul and Spirit.
On a practical level, hope for the best but prepare for the worst. An
interruption in the supply of electricity may occur for any number of reasons
in 2012, including the pole shift, pole reversal, ensuing erratic weather
patterns, seismic activity, floods and fires, as well as solar storms, which
can also mysteriously interrupt electricity. As is common sense, keep a supply
of fresh water and food that does not require cooking in case you do not have
access to electricity. A small quantity of paper money also could be helpful. A
supply of batteries for radios, computers and/or cell phones also could assist
you. Please note that any need for these supplies will be for days – and not
weeks. Please be vigilant, but it is not necessary to hoard your supplies. You
may also want to keep a supply of warm coats and/or blankets on hand for harsh
weather and/or power outages.
Part 2 – PREDICTIONS for OUR WORLD
Solar storms are predicted to
accelerate throughout 2012. These powerful storms can cause unexplainable
interruptions in the flow of manmade electricity as the electromagnetic field
of the earth is disturbed.
Solar storms intensify solar energy. Astrologically, the sun rules raw energy,
warmth, generosity and love. It also rules self-absorption, self-expression and
the ego. The intensification of solar energy causes humans and the natural
environment to vacillate between extremes. The rash of solar storms may make
people alternately more social and more self-centered as they come into
balance. The solar energy can also drive repressed feelings and thoughts to the
surface. Ego battles or power struggles can occur between people as solar
energy can reinforce ego strength.
The flare-ups of new energy – and new information – can cause confusion,
conflict or chaotic circumstances. The intense solar energy can incite great
tension as you find a center between you own energetic polarities, the
polarities in the people around you, and extremes in nature. Solar energy is
polarizing – it illumines the day and its absence gives rise to night.
Sometimes it is darkest before the dawn. The heightening of polarities and
chaotic circumstances caused by solar storms is a prelude to greater unity and
The sun also rules the constellation of Leo. Everyone has Leo somewhere in
their astrological charts, whether or not planets fall in that constellation.
Leo is warm and magnanimous. Leo loves an audience. Leo is expressive and has
to be careful not to become too absorbed in him- or herself or his or her own
point of view. Leo can be both self-oriented or magnanimous. The area of your
chart containing the constellation of Leo will be activated during the intense
solar storms of 2012. (The astrological chart is comprised of a 360-degree
wheel that includes all 12 signs of the zodiac. Planets are placed in constellations
around the wheel.) Look for the location of the constellation of Leo in your
astrological chart. This will show where your energy will be concentrated in
2012. The position of Leo in your astrological chart can be determined by an
astrologer or one of the many astrological programs on the internet.
What has been under the earth will continue to rise to awareness in 2012.
Geological discoveries of fossils, ancient architecture and scrolls, as well as
alternative energy sources including geothermal energy, and energy from the
wind, water, sun or other materials will accelerate. Earthquakes and seismic
activity will increase. Floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes and
weird weather patterns will accelerate.
A re-distribution of water supplies will occur as people living in previously
dry climates experience more rain, and people living in previously rainy
climates experience more dry spells. Avalanches and mudslides are likely to
proliferate. Some rivers and lakes will go dry while others flood – in record
numbers. Consequently, animals, birds and insects will migrate. The effects of
climate change will become more noticeable – and undeniable to those who would
deny the changes.
Clean air and water will be compromised and in shorter supply. People will
ponder reactions to shortages but become mired in petty details. More solutions
will come in 2013. Our bodies (through our DNA) will begin to mutate to
accommodate environmental changes. As we consume more genetically modified foods,
for example, our bodies will initially be confused by consumption of these
non-natural agricultural products. But over time, our DNA will actually mutate
to enable our bodies to digest and assimilate the foods we routinely ingest.
Similarly, as the composition of the air becomes depleted of oxygen due to the
increase in pollution, our DNA will mutate to either enable our bodies to
extract more oxygen from the air we breathe or to enable our bodies to survive
on less oxygen.
The dangers of genetically engineered products will become more pronounced
as these goods become more available and their effects more widespread.
“Organic,” non-chemically enhanced food products will be in shorter supply and
will command higher prices. People will become increasingly interested in
gourmet food and unusual food combinations.
As a reflection of increased aggression and conflict among humans, animals
also will become stronger and more aggressive, especially predatory animals
such as mountain lions, tigers, bears, sharks and even insects.
Head injuries and trauma will increase in numbers and severity. More people
than is normal will accidentally fall or be involved in freak accidents as a
result of unstable energy patterns on earth. The head, face, jaw, eyes, nose
and ears will be particularly vulnerable. Injuries to knees, feet, and joints
will be greater than normal. Pay attention to and protect these areas. Be
especially careful when in moving vehicles, particularly bicycles, cars, and
recreational vehicles. You or others may be more distracted than usual due to
the increase in electromagnetic changes – so accidents will become more
Ubiquitous wireless technology also impairs the electromagnetic field of the
human body, which can comprise the immune system or cause other health-related
issues, such as headaches, inability to concentrate, or lessened mental
clarity. Again, compensatory neurological and genetic changes will enable us to
eventually adapt. We are in a period of transition.
The pace of technological advances will increase exponentially as most of
the world’s “energy” will be focused in this sector.
- We will learn about and experience the limitations of
our current electrical grid as the interruption of electric services will
occur more frequently than is normal – generally for 24 to 48 hours.
These technological snafus will challenge global reliance on electricity.
Consequently, new forms of energy generation, ones that are more
compatible with the natural environment, will begin to be established.
- Meanwhile, many more wireless gadgets will be invented.
As damage to the natural environment from wireless signals is discovered
(for example, its disruptive effect on creatures that rely upon
electromagnetic and sound waves (radar and sonar) to navigate, such as
dolphins, whales, birds, bees and other animals), wireless technology will
be reconfigured to be more compatible with the natural frequencies of the
human body and Mother Earth.
- Larger machinery will increasingly function without
physical wiring and will rely on powerful batteries until even more
powerful alternate energy sources are created.
- Computers, telephones and other communications devices
will operate with projected light rather than physical keyboards or
- Cars will become increasingly automated – they already
can park themselves.
- Medical care will rely increasingly on light, lasers
and wireless remote control systems.
- Humans will do less and technology will do more. Manual
tasks, previously accomplished by hand, will be accomplished through
wireless signals, voice commands, and eventually ... thoughts.
Major markets will move sideways with erratic ups and downs. The dollar,
along with other major currencies, will continue to lose value. The price of
gold will hold steady – and even rise. Interest rates will remain low in the
near-term but a period of hyper-inflation will follow, particularly in food,
energy, health care and education. Productivity will decelerate until a new
business cycle begins in 2020, due to a planetary realignment.
The best businesses to be in during the coming years are agriculture, food
storage and distribution, temporary shelter, and conservation, purification,
storage and distribution of air and water. Agricultural land with ready access
to water will be of premium value. Businesses related to climate change will
Democracy will grow worldwide – but with a continuation of intensified
social unrest among oppressed and disenfranchised people. The “have-nots” will
fight to become equal to the “haves.” Some authoritarian regimes initially will
try to exert more control to corral rebellious factions until the waves of
change reach critical mass and a more egalitarian order prevails. These
established governments will eventually weaken as their leaders have made a
majority of their decisions to protect their power, their interests, and the
interests of corporations and people who financially support them rather than
the good of the populations they serve. Eventually, self-governing citizens
groups will supplant overly authoritarian governmental power.
While most nations’ leaders are becoming enlightened enough to make efforts to
avoid sending their citizens to be killed in warfare, smaller groups of
dissatisfied people will incite warfare in local areas. Eventually,
human-to-human negotiated solutions, mediation and conflict resolution will
supplant war and physical vying for territory as we move toward a more united
Nations such as India, China, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Mexico
will take a more prominent place on the global stage. South American nations
will play a more pivotal role due to vast agricultural resources and the
creative handwork of indigenous people. African nations also will supply needed
resources to the global community.
Self-styled journalists who lead a search for “truth” will proliferate. The
line between fact and fantasy will blur as it becomes increasingly difficult to
ferret out the truth, leading to more people becoming pro-active in local
politics where the ability to ascertain the truth is increased.
Housing prices will move sideways or decline until June 2013, when they
will briefly spike until July 2014, before declining again until 2020.
Alternative forms of housing will unseat the trend toward McMansions, shifting
the balance toward make-shift homes, yurts, and homes made from recycled and
sustainable materials, and tents. No workable solutions to the mortgage/foreclosure
crisis will be found in the near-term. More people will become homeless.
Alternative uses of foreclosed houses will be discussed, such as rentals by
banks, but no action will be taken until 2013-14.
The pace of daily life will become more rapid. Compensatory neurological
changes will gradually occur in people to cope with the faster pace. This will
be most evident among children, who have more neuro-plasticity than do adults.
But neurological changes also will be detectable in adults. Materially, we will
have enough of the small stuff, and this will lead to a desire to have what’s
really important – a connection to Spirit and the soul. More people will find
spiritual movements and groups to become part of, where spiritual rituals such
as meditation and prayer will be the centerpiece.
People will become increasingly polarized – individualistic and
self-absorbed, causing separations in relationships where the partners are not
aligned at a soul level. More conventional relationships will break up. More
unconventional, non-committal partnerships will form. This is a necessary,
although paradoxical step, toward a more cohesive global community.
People will turn increasingly to Spirit to solve daily problems as
conventional solutions no longer prevail.

Part 4 - YOUR PERSONALIZED ASTROLOGICAL PREDICTIONS
(March 21 –
With fortunate Jupiter
in Taurus until June 12, 2012, you will build energy and financial resources in
the first half of 2012, and then expend those energetic and financial resources
in the second half of the year. It is likely you will need the funds you accumulated
either for travel, classes, gadgets, or other learning tools while Jupiter
transits the mentally curious sign of Gemini until mid-2013. It is time to
develop your mind so you can apply your skills to an important project. Your
impulse to take on a complex task will intensify while Mars, your planetary
ruler, travels through the industrious sign of Virgo until July 2012. Use this
enterprising energy to refine details, learn skills that you will use in the
future, and complete an important – as yet unfinished – undertaking. A potent
line-up of change-oriented Uranus in Aries and deeply transformative Pluto in
Capricorn will help you develop a latent talent that will enrich yourself and
others. Fasten your seat-belt – and position yourself for a new direction. Team
up with other Aries natives, Cancers, Librans or Capricorns when you seek
excitement and change. Partner with the other eight signs of the zodiac when
you want to relax, catch your breath and maintain the status quo. An
influential relationship will transform the direction of your career. You are a
natural leader, but make sure not to be over-bearing if you are in
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Lucky Jupiter in Taurus until June 12, 2012 will aid
financial acquisitions and personal relationships. It is a good time for
investments in precious metals, gems or real estate. You will grow in important
ways from classes, group meetings or spiritually-oriented travel. You will be
open to higher states of awareness during the second half of the year. Explore
mind-expanding possibilities beginning in June 2012 through contemplation,
meditation, prayer and quiet time in nature. By opening your consciousness, you
will release rigid patterns held in your body and mind. These liberating
experiences will improve your health – physically and financially – as
energy and “currency” more easily flow though your body, mind, and soul.
Financial abundance will result from spiritually-motivated actions initiated
during the second half of the year. Plant the seeds in the first six months of
2012 and reap the harvest in the latter half of the year. Venus, your planetary
ruler, turns retrograde in Gemini in May and June 2012. If you have over-spent
in the past, re-pay your debts during this two-month period. If someone owes
you, this is a good time to collect. A powerful line-up of change-oriented
Uranus in Aries and deeply transformative Pluto in Capricorn begins on June 24,
2012. Prepare to do soul-searching about the deeper motivations for your
actions and life direction. Make sure your motives are aligned with your
highest good and the needs of your soul and Spirit. Otherwise, circumstances
will alter what you thought was a promising path.
GEMINI (May 21 – June
You will have a year of unexpected meetings
with new people who will influence your life direction. This trend will be most
obvious in the days leading up to a lunar eclipse in Gemini on December 10,
2011, followed by a solar eclipse in Gemini on May 20, 2012, a lunar eclipse in
Gemini on June 4, 2012, a solar eclipse on November 13, 2012, and yet another
lunar eclipse in Gemini on November 28, 2012. The eclipses of the sun and moon
alter the normal pattern of solar and lunar light, which causes people who wouldn’t
normally connect to serendipitously bump into each other. Stay open to chance
meetings and try to find an opportunity in unexpected encounters. “If you don’t
know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” You will get “there” –
to a good place – by not knowing in advance where “there” is. Lucky Jupiter in
Gemini from June 11, 2012 to June 25, 2013, will provide spiritual protection
for your positive thoughts. By staying open to opportunities you previously had
not contemplated, you will receive richness from unanticipated encounters and
experience undreamed-of possibilities. Nonetheless, remember to stay prepared
for all outcomes by stocking up on important supplies and having extra cash
available for unforeseen adventures in 2012. Even though this is a good
year to be spontaneous, keep your personal goals in the back of your mind – so
that social and societal influences do not take you away from your overall
vision for your life. Continue to pay attention to your inner voices and
premonitions. Pray for the highest outcome.
CANCER (June 22 – July
A series of solar and
lunar eclipses from December 2011 to December 2012 will give you time to tune
into your sensitive soul. Make sure to do extra meditation, yoga, quiet
contemplation and writing in the days leading up to the eclipses – December 10,
2011 (lunar eclipse), May 20, 2012 (solar eclipse), June 4, 2012 (lunar
eclipse), November 13, 2012 (solar eclipse), and November 28, 2012 (lunar
eclipse). A celestial line-up between change-oriented Uranus and depth-seeking
Pluto in Capricorn just after the Summer Solstice will stimulate your
creativity and help you disentangle from a restrictive domestic or professional
burden. Choose at least one area of your life that you would like to change – because
energies will conspire to bring positive transformation to you even if you try
to hold on. So it is best to prepare for and choose your change – because it is
likely to come to you – one way or the other. The status quo is evolving for
many people, and the reverberations of these changes will affect you. If you
point yourself in the direction you would like to go, you will be easily
catapulted to the next step. If you don’t choose a direction, the universe will
likely choose for you. Remove resistance to ease your journey. Empower yourself
and take command. You will arrive at a destination that is proper and
appropriate for you. Cancers, Librans, Capricorns and Aries will understand the
feelings you are experiencing.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Relationships will be
anything but predictable in 2012 with illusory Neptune crossing through a
sensitive area of your solar chart. You may see what you want to see in others,
only later to find out that the other person had a completely different agenda
from your own. Make sure to ask questions and gather details before making
relationship commitments in the coming year. There is a chance that there will
be hidden information, particularly of a financial nature. Travel will benefit
you in the coming year, but be prepared for sudden changes in your own mood and
the moods of the people with whom you may be traveling or in contact with on
your voyage. Trip insurance is a good idea! Also, please pay attention to your
health. Conditions lurking under the surface will have a tendency to manifest,
particularly if they involve digestion and elimination. Additionally, read
carefully contracts that cross your desk. And be very clear about any
agreements you enter into. Again, you may want to skim the details, but the
difference between your success and failure will hinge upon details that may
seem insignificant at the outset but will prove pivotal as time goes by.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Energetic Mars in Virgo for an unusually long
eight-month period – from November 10, 2011 to July 3, 2012 – will heighten
your energy level and endurance in 2012. Mars typically spends two months in
each zodiac sign, but will spend four times longer in Virgo, due to the
retrograde motion of the fiery planet. Consequently, you will experience
greater heat and blood flow in your body. Greater circulation than you are
accustomed to will strengthen your health but may also make you feel
over-charged at times. This could lead to irritability or nervous exhaustion.
Try to pace yourself during the first six months of 2012 so you don’t expend
all of your energy at once or absorb too much of other people’s nervous energy.
Get out into nature, take long walks, breathe deeply, or sit quietly in
meditation or contemplation. You will benefit from writing your thoughts and
feelings. Mars can make one feel headstrong or dogmatic, so if you feel
yourself becoming intolerant – or too fixated on details – try to step
back, see the big picture, and look at the situation from another person’s point
of view. Consider alternatives. You will accomplish quite a lot under the
influence of Mars in Virgo if you focus your mind and intentions and avoid
overindulgence in small points. On a global level, you and many others will
have abundant energy for introspection, self-improvement and healing. During
the second half of 2012, you will most enjoy and benefit from the passage of
the sun through Virgo in late August and September, Mercury in Virgo in early
September, and Venus in Virgo in October.
LIBRA (September 23 –
You are setting the
stage for the next seven years of your life as karmic Saturn completes its
once-every-28-year journey through Libra on November 5, 2012. (Saturn was last
in Libra in 1982. Saturn will next be in Libra in 2039.) It is time to put the
finishing touches on your plans for the future. Think strategically about what
you will need to move forward until 2039. Are you in the correct location? Are
the people you are with mutually supportive? Is your living environment good for
your health? Are you doing the work you enjoy? What changes are necessary
to bring YOU (not everyone else) happiness? This is the time to contemplate
changes you would like to make, because chances are good that not only will the
changes be correct for you, they will be correct for the people around you –
and their impact will be long-lasting and practical. Given that actions you
take in the coming year are likely to have enduring consequences, think
carefully about what you would like to create. Change-oriented Uranus in your
opposing sign of Aries in 2012 will challenge you to move forward in and
possibly away from relationships that restrict your growth. You will grow
closer to people who are able to understand you at a deep level under the
influence of Pluto in Capricorn. You will bring deep resources within yourself
to bear in complex circumstances – and this will help you transform your
self-image. You will be positively influenced by travel to a new location.
These circumstances will catalyze growth and will contribute an expanded
perspective to the next chapter of your life.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 21)
On November 5, 2012, karmic Saturn enters
Scorpio for the first time since 1985. This will open a two-and-a-half year
karmic window that will enable you to resolve issues that may have been
outstanding since the late 1980s, or at least the past seven years. Much of
your self-transformation will come as a result of and in relationship to –
relationships. You have a need for a high degree of intimacy and have a high
tolerance level for the exigencies (at times!) of human relationships. Do a
searching inventory of your partnerships and your own nature to discover where
situations might have become overly complex – and where you may simplify. This
could include accepting people or situations the way they are, or allowing a
person to relate to you on a superficial level – difficult as this is for you –
without provoking greater depth of reaction or feeling. You have enormous
resources of intuition, energy, and endurance. Try to use these gifts to
advance an important goal such as starting an altruistic business, furthering
your spiritual growth and progress, or contributing to a community activity.
You still may enjoy deep relationships, but this is a time to seek balance and
create harmony so you can keep your eye on the ball and do your real work,
which involves a deeper relationship with yourself and your soul.
22 – December 21)
Your planetary ruler, lucky Jupiter, in Taurus
during the first half of 2012 will help you focus on financial abundance and
material security. Pay attention to reducing your expenses and adhering to a
budget while trying to develop a savings plan. This ability will come in handy
during the second half of 2012, when you will be more focused upon
relationships – many of them – and expenses related to these new contacts. New
people bearing useful information will come into your life beginning in June
2012. You will benefit from classes, travel, and learning opportunities under
the influence of Jupiter in Gemini. You also will find many subconscious
desires and impulses rising to the surface beginning in February 2012, under
the influence of Neptune in Pisces. Neptune in Pisces will create much
spiritual affluence while it simultaneously erodes material wealth – until
spiritual practice helps re-open and build channels for material abundance. You
stand to gain much from spiritual practice in 2012, and this will ultimately
contribute to your financial health. Take periodic breaks from your material
responsibilities to fulfill spiritual longings – and this will bring you
greater ease and balance. You are ready to embark upon a journey to higher
consciousness. Follow your intuition. Depth-seeking Pluto in Capricorn will
help you profit from in-depth study of a complex, spiritual or philosophical
subject. You may give good financial advice to others during the coming year,
so make sure to follow your own counsel. Pursue a conservative path in your
business and financial endeavors for the greatest success.
CAPRICORN (December 22
– January 19)
You are ready to
change a persistent pattern that has kept you from manifesting your true self
and the creative power within you. Make an inventory of your life to determine
a habit that no longer serves you. A potent alignment between change-oriented
Uranus in Aries and deeply transformative Pluto in Capricorn begins on June 24,
2012, just after the Summer Solstice. This celestial line-up occurs an
astounding seven times between 2012 and 2015, giving you ample time to let go
of the past and create new foundations for the future. Consider where you would
like to go in the coming decade. Decisions made in 2012 will be instrumental in
creating the pattern for the next seven to 14 years of your life. Consider
options, think strategically, and make bold decisions when you have the
necessary information and have thoroughly thought about the path that lies
ahead of you. Many exciting opportunities are bound to come your way. Prepare
to meet these opportunities by being open-minded and available to possibilities
you previously had not considered.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
The passage of spiritual Neptune from Aquarius
into Pisces on February 3, 2012 will mark the end of an era for you. The
illusory planet Neptune has been in Aquarius since January 1998, except for a
brief sojourn into Pisces from April to August 2011. The passage of Neptune
through Aquarius has likely had numerous effects upon you – it alternately made
you tired or spacey, while simultaneously opening your mind to new
possibilities or even levels of reality, such as dreams, your soul, a spiritual
teacher, the fourth dimension or the astral world. Neptune dissolves material
abundance while simultaneously producing spiritual riches. Neptune can open
your eyes to wondrous mystical realities and expose the dark side of mundane
reality. You probably have experienced both sides of Neptune’s illuminating and
disillusioning influence during the past 14 years. Neptune can illuminate that
which has been hidden while dissolving that which you can see and think is
real. So, under its influence you may have felt deluded about a situation or
aspect of life. But you also discovered a more fruitful avenue for your energy
during the same period of time. As Neptune passes through Pisces for the next
14 years, until 2026, you will make more discoveries about the nature of
physical reality and your material possessions. You may become less attached to
those things that you thought were essential and you may become more passionate
about various ideas about which you were ambivalent before. With Uranus, your
planetary ruler, in Aries, forming a potent angle to depth-seeking and
transformative Pluto in Capricorn, deep transformation is coming your way. Pay
attention to your dreams and write down premonitions. Set aside time for
prayer, meditation, and positive affirmations.
PISCES (February 19 –
Your planetary ruler,
Neptune, re-enters Pisces on February 3, 2012 for the first time since the
1840s (except for a brief sojourn in Pisces from April to August 2011). Neptune
will remain in Pisces until 2026. This planetary transit will give you enhanced
energy and appreciation for art, music, the importance of water, and your evolving
connection to your soul and Spirit. Your receptivity to spiritual discovery and
evolution through prayer, meditation and affirmations will be heightened. A
potent line-up of change-oriented Uranus in Aries and depth-seeking Pluto in
Capricorn will bring people into your life who are deeply seeking
answers. Your spiritual example will do more to help them transform their lives
than any words you may utter or physical action you may take on their behalf.
So, strengthen your own spiritual center and encourage others to follow your
example. You are ahead of your time and possess insight beyond that of your
contemporaries. (Steve Jobs of Apple was a Pisces!) Listen to your intuition,
follow your insights, stay in tune with your ideas and remain true to your
vision. You were made for the coming times. You are emerging into an important
period of your life.
