The Crash Course of 2019

Not just with the stock market, but in other ways as well, society as a whole is on a direct course for a crash this year. However, the impending crash(es) that I’m foreseeing can also serve as a “crash course” on the importance of morality and the steep consequences of its absence. For this reason, I think we can envision the difficulties that are immediately in store for the US (and for the whole world, by extension) in a positive light.

Even more importantly, the best response to the crash(es) in question is our positivity and optimism, both before and after the fact. So, in this post I’ll describe how to transform the remaining tough stars of 2019 into deep spiritual growth and service to others.

Saturn and Ketu Are Making America Grate Again: Why Selflessness, Oneness and Compassion Are the Antidote to This Moment

Morality is taking a big hit from this year’s astrology, so I think it’s important to focus this post on the antidote to immorality. Although I will briefly touch on past and upcoming events in this article, I’m going to focus mostly on an important deeper message: selflessness is the antidote to immorality. Selflessness is actually just an identification with oneness, or “separatelessness.” In this article, I’m going to go pretty deep and get a bit abstract at times, in order to explain how morality, law, and social order revolve around selflessness. I’ll also show why the current astrology and the rising “cult of self” make selflessness so vital to everyone’s well-being at this historic juncture.

Stock Market Supplement

With this article’s stock market prediction for next week, I may be going further out on a limb than I have ever gone with an astrological forecast — because, as of now (Friday night), there seems to be little if any indication that this prediction will be right. But, I think it would be disingenuous and cowardly to alter a prediction just because there was scant indication that the prediction would be correct immediately beforehand. So instead, I’m going to reiterate my prediction and explain its basis in this supplemental post.

For over two full years now, I’ve thought that there would probably be a stock market crash this year, and most probably this spring, and we’re finally now just a few days away from what I’ve seen as the most likely flashpoint for that crash. If the astrology I’m about to outline doesn’t foretell a crash, it still warrants mentioning in detail, because it is unusual and will indeed be impactful one way or another. Also, if there’s no crash this month or in early May, then there’s still a high probability that there would be a crash this June (or even October), so it wouldn’t hurt if I primed the pumps a bit early.

Pre-Mueller Report Supplement

This post is just meant as a quick supplemental message ahead of tomorrow’s (Thursday’s) release of AG Bill Barr’s redacted Mueller Report (I know I promised to write about compassion next, and I will, when I finally post my next full article)…

 

Here are the points I wanted to get out tonight:

 

First of all, AG Barr has amply fulfilled my expectations that Mueller’s report would be stifled this spring (see my last article). Barr has obviously been the agent of the “favorable winds” that we foresaw in Trump’s astrology for this spring (see my last article).  But admittedly, I didn’t foresee Mueller’s timing completely correctly (and I was also wrong in saying that Trump would likely return from his summit in Vietnam with Kim Jung-un with seemingly successful results), but I’ll cover that in more detail in my next complete article.

 

Secondly, I’d be very surprised if Barr didn’t continue to stifle Mueller’s work in tomorrow’s redacted version of the Mueller Report, at least to an extent that politically protects Trump. There are several suspicious facts that put Bill Barr’s credibility deeply in question:

 

1) It has taken Barr nearly four weeks to redact a report that reportedly was written to be released to Congress quickly. That’s a suspiciously long time to do what should have been easy work.

2) Barr refused to say in his congressional testimony if he had discussed Mueller’s findings with the White House. That’s pretty suspicious, too. What was he hoping to hide? Well, it was reported today that Barr’s department has furnished Trump’s lawyers with information about the report’s findings in advance of its public release, enabling Trump’s legal team to have a “rebuttal” ready as soon as the Mueller report goes public (i.e. for damage control). That’s a very taboo favor for Barr to provide.

3) Barr explicitly asserted that the intelligence community spied on the Trump campaign—stoking distrust of the agency (the FBI) that began the investigation into Trump’s ties with Russia in the first place—even though Barr later walked back his assertion. A man who is very nuanced in his word choices wouldn’t just accuse the FBI in sworn congressional testimony of spying on a president by accident, or by reckless slip of the tongue. He was trying to protect Trump by fueling the counter-story to the Mueller report.

4) Barr already pulled a similar move 30 years ago, when he hid a legal opinion he wrote for George Bush Sr. from Congress’ attempts to see it. That was a kind of coverup. Barr’s written opinion was released 3 years later by Bill Clinton (more on this below).

5) Barr seems to have auditioned for the AG position by writing a very bizarrely Trump-friendly memo on the legal question of obstruction of justice (more on this below).

6) Barr didn’t recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller probe, despite his very explicit criticism of Mueller’s purported views on obstruction of justice in that memo, and despite calling Mueller’s views “asinine” in 2017.

7) Barr then cleared Trump of obstruction of justice based on the view he asserted in his memo. He also seemed to do so a bit too eagerly (it took him less than 48 hours to clear Trump on all counts, despite it taking 4 weeks to edit Mueller’s report).

8) Barr hasn’t asked the court to allow him to give Congress any grand jury information, even though it is customary and easy to do so. In fact, Barr refuses to do so.

9) Barr is bucking precedence by only offering Congress a redacted report. In similar cases, Congress received full, unredacted reports

10) Barr has been playing with words in his communications with Congress, and this suggests that he’s trying to obscure the truth. When Barr said that Mueller didn’t “establish” a case of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia, he used a word (“establish”) that would require the highest legal standard of proof to satisfy. That is, one could find tons of evidence of collusion, but still fail to “establish” collusion between the parties in question. Similarly, when Barr said that Trump wasn’t guilty of obstruction of justice, this didn’t imply that Trump had not significantly obstructed, or tried to obstruct, the justice process. Rather, it merely meant that Trump: a) hadn’t tried to destroy or compromise any specific piece of evidence, and b) Trump technically couldn’t be guilty of obstructing justice for firing James Comey and trying to fire Mueller anyway, because there’s no law against a president shutting down an investigation of himself, in Barr’s view (see next item). Barr’s word play merely obscures the truth; it doesn’t reveal the truth.  The only potential reason to obscure the truth about Mueller’s findings would be to protect Trump from those findings.

11) Bill Barr’s June 8th 2018 memorandum to Rod Rosenstein and the justice department, strikes me as a contrived facade of an argument defending: i) Trump’s firing of James Comey, and ii) Trump’s absolute right to terminate any FBI investigation he wants to terminate, regardless of motive. Barr ends up taking the position that, while it would be illegal for a president to destroy a tiny piece of evidence in an investigation, it would not be illegal for the president to destroy the entire investigation itself (by shutting it down). This should strike anyone with a shred of intellectual honesty as an absurd position to take. The only reason why the evidence of an investigation could be important to protect would be if investigations themselves are important to protect. In other words, it wouldn’t be important to protect an investigation’s evidence if it weren’t important to protect the investigation in the first place. Why would the preservation of the evidence be more important than the preservation of the investigation that the evidence serves?

 

Clearly, Barr just submitted his position to Trump’s justice department in order to be recognized by the president for the president-friendly position Barr propounded. Barr’s memo made it abundantly clear that he was already inclined to fight for Trump’s absolution from guilt on obstruction, and that’s precisely what he did in his 4-page letter to Congress from March 24.

 

Unfortunately, we don’t have Barr’s birth time, so we don’t know his ascendant. But, because Barr already pulled something similar in the Bush administration 30 years ago, I’m suspicious that Barr’s ascendant is late Sagittarius, like Mueller’s. Admittedly, the current Saturn-Ketu conjunction in late Sagittarius makes it tempting just to speculate that the bad actors on center-stage right now must be Sagittarius rising. But 30 years ago, when Barr defied Congress the last time, Saturn was in the 2nd half of Sagittarius too, just as it is now. This probably indicates that Barr’s ascendant is 17-24 degrees of Sag. If so, then with Ketu beside Saturn in Sagittarius now too, Barr is likely to repeat his previous stunt with even more deception than the first time.

 

The only redeeming factor weighing in Barr’s favor now, in my view, is that Rod Rosenstein has recently come to the defense of Barr’s integrity. Until now, I have trusted Rosenstein, so his defense of Barr is confusing.

One thing for sure is that we won’t see full exoneration of Trump in any legitimate rendering of the Mueller Report. Of course, that will lead to the question of how badly that lack of exoneration reflects on Trump, and that in turn will largely depend on how much damaging information is redacted by Barr. I expect that the efforts to hold back the tides of damning info on Trump will have failed by this June. June is also a time when the economy is likely to falter and affairs with Kim Jung-un are likely to escalate dramatically. I also think that Americans will be increasingly in conflict with each other at that time as well.

 

Finally, since Mueller issued his report on March 22nd, I should point out that Trump’s first “peak of accountability” for 2019 occurred right around March 9, about 2 weeks before Mueller finished his report. I interpret that to indicate that Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony (which he gave on February 26 & March 6) was actually part of Mueller’s big move (the big move I’d been predicting would occur by the first week of March). The media seems not to have made much news of the fact that Cohen testified on live TV that Roger Stone told Trump in advance about some Wikileaks dumps against Hillary Clinton—which is something that Trump is said (by Roger Stone himself, on Fox News) to have denied in his sworn written testimony to Mueller.

 

Thus, if Cohen was telling the truth, then Trump perjured himself to Mueller. My guess is that Mueller was left with just a “he-said/he-said” case for perjury, so he couldn’t make anything legally stick, but he still wanted Congress and the public to know about the issue, so he had Cohen testify accordingly. Either way, Cohen’s appearance in Mueller’s and Trump’s key astrological moment in early March means that Cohen will still play a big role in Trump’s two remaining peaks of accountability this year (June & Nov/Dec). June will be awful for Trump, and Mueller will be deeply in the fray at that point (if not even by late May). I’ll say more in my next full article about all that. I’ll also talk about truth and compassion in that post as well.

 

Try to stay detached from it all until then! More soon…

The Deep Dive (Reposted with Clarificatory Notes)

Some readers of the article I’m reposting below have misinterpreted my claim that around now “it will initially look like the winds are in Trump’s favor” to mean that Trump would have smooth sailing in March. So, I’m reposting this article (posted less than 24 hours ago) and including some quoted text from my January article for clarification (I’m also going to add notes about Pluto and about the week of April 22, which I omitted last night as well).

In my last post, I made it clear that Trump wouldn’t have smooth sailing in March. Rather, I said, “Trump will have so much more to respond to and answer for in February and March.” This was primarily due to Saturn’s first square to Trump’s Jupiter (his dasha lord), which peaks on  around March 9.

I then added all of the following:

“A Saturn aspect to anyone’s planetary period lord will bring that person down to earth and face-to-face with reality. But in the case of Trump, who is astrologically predisposed to operate with little regard for reality (as I described in the article, “Trump and the Astrology of Alternate Realities”), being brought ‘down to earth’ will feel like a crash landing and coming ‘face-to-face’ with reality will feel like getting hit in the face by reality.  This is especially true because Mars, by transit, will also increasingly be afflicting Trump in March (particularly in the second half of March, but see my note below about Trump’s protection from Jupiter this spring)…

“Trump does have an extended period of protection/grace from Jupiter’s aspects to his Sun and Moon, from February-May of this year, which I believe will enable him to evade the clutches of political destruction until about June (note the parallel to Mueller’s Ketu subperiod issues described below). But by then, I think that the accumulation of evidence against Trump–finally compounded by the snowballing negative effects of economic, social, and geopolitical challenges to the country that Trump clearly cannot manage–will trigger a wave of Republicans breaking ranks with Trump for the sake of the nation.

“Trump’s last moment of Jupiternian protection this year happens in late October and early November—just before his final Saturn square in late November and early December… So, I think that Jupiter transit is more likely to mirror Nixon’s Jupiternian protection of 1973, which protected Nixon from criminal prosecution but didn’t save him from having to leave office (for more detail, see my article, “Trump in Nixon’s Footsteps” from January 2018). Trump would only resign with a pardon from Pence in his pocket, so I expect that’s how his Jupiternian protection will play out.”

 

What I thought about saying in last night’s article, but omitted in my haste to publish before bedtime, was that the first instance of this same Jupiter transit over Trump’s Moon and opposite his Sun (happening this whole spring, but especially over the next month, starting right now), is likely to be when Trump will begin talks in earnest with Mike Pence about a pardon deal, in case future events necessitate Trump’s resignation. Here, the idea is that the foundation for the pardon is laid now, in the first instance of the Jupiter transit, and the pardon is then finalized and consecrated (not yet granted, though, until after Trump resigns) in October/November, during the second instance. This is another example of consecutive instances of the same astrology building upon each other (as with Robert Mueller’s three astrological peaks this year, mentioned below).

In last night’s article, I was trying to indicate that the other boosting and protective effects of Trump’s Jupiter transits the spring would be: 1) to provide Trump with an apparent outcome that he could tout from his current summit with Kim Jong-un, and 2) to provide Trump with a favorable wind that would temporarily shield him from the damaging substance of whatever move Robert Mueller was/is about to make. After watching some of Michael Cohen’s testimony today, it seemed to me that Mueller could actually take credit for some of the damning content of Cohen’s testimony, given that Mueller didn’t have to allow Michael Cohen to speak about the ongoing Roger Stone case. But, Mueller allowed Cohen to say that Roger Stone told Trump in advance about the WikiLeaks against Hillary Clinton—which is something that Trump is reported (including by Roger Stone himself on Fox News) to have denied in sworn written testimony to Mueller back in November (during that giant week of Mueller’s around Thanksgiving that I wrote about in my September and November articles).

In my prior article, from January 19, I also said, “Mueller will face strong threats to stifle and conceal his work,” and “Mueller will surely face strong efforts to marginalize and sideline him until the Ketu subperiod finishes” (which I now believe happens sometime in April).

Hopefully, given all that I’ve said above, readers won’t feel inclined to misinterpret the phrase “it will initially look like the winds are in Trump’s favor” as they continue reading this article. All I meant to say is that, in the midst of his first of three “peaks of accountability” that I’ve mentioned several times in the last few months, Trump will seem to be evading the clutches of doom. But, this should actually make sense, given that there are three peaks of accountability, and not just one. If he didn’t seem to evade the clutches of doom in the first peak, Trump probably wouldn’t then face a second and third peak of accountability.

 

Here, now, is last night’s article (including my attempt to build-in a clarificatory note from this morning):

 

The Deep Dive

Unlike my most recent articles, this post will be pretty brief. In essence, I want to sketch a projected outline for the stock market dive that I think is imminent. For lack of time, I will just post a simple timeline, but that should be enough to convey the important points. I also want to cover Robert Mueller’s imminent big move and how it relates to the deep dive into the Trump case that Mueller will be making throughout this year.

 

Comment added Feb. 27:

For any who might wonder, in light of Michael Cohen’s testimony today, this article is meant to supplement my January article, not supersede it. That is, I published “The Deep Dive” just to contextualize Robert Mueller’s next move and to give ample warning about the stock market perils this spring. I’m just not sure if I’ll have any time in March to publish another piece, so I wanted to get one out last night while I had the chance. This new article is not meant to imply that I no longer think Trump will be facing heavy accountability this March, as I said he wouldin my last article. So, my reference to Trump having “the winds in his favor”  below doesn’t mean that he won’t be facing any headwinds at the same time; it just means that, on balance, he has sufficient protection from those headwinds for a couple months. 

 

In comparing the upcoming astrology to the astrology of the stock market plunges of 2008, 2000, and 1929, I developed the following projection:

Late March:
In late March, when Ketu joins Saturn in late Sagittarius, I think more and more people will start to sense foreboding environmental rumblings and a building emotional uneasiness in the air.

Mid/Late-April to Early-May:
By mid/late-April, or at least by early May, those foreshadowings will turn into a large-scale stock sell off. This is partly because Mercury and Venus will both be in Pisces starting mid-April. Pisces is the most fluid sign, and Venus is the planet of cash liquidity, while Mercury is the planet of quick financial transactions. Mercury is debilitated in Pisces, but Venus is exalted in Pisces. This creates a slightly destabilizing push-pull imbalance that I believe will be the critica nudge that activates the negative effects of the Saturn-Ketu conjunction on the markets (note: in some stock crashes, Mercury and Venus have been in Virgo, where Venus is debilitated and Mercury is exalted, creating a similarly destabilizing imbalance).

Saturn and Ketu are exactly conjunct on April 30, within 24 hours of when Saturn goes retrograde (April 29) and within 24 hours of when Mars exactly aspects that Saturn-Ketu conjunction from Taurus (May 1), so it looks like most of the damage to the market will be done by the beginning of May (probably the week of April 22 will be the worst, followed by more of the same as the subsequent week begins). The residual sell-off after that juncture will probably just be driven by desperate people who by then realize that the market won’t be rebounding anytime soon (in contrast to the way the market did rebound at end of last December, when interestingly, Pluto conjuncted the exact degree where Saturn and Ketu will be conjunct in late April of this year–which also happens to be exactly opposite the degree that Pluto occupied in Gemini during the 1929 stock market crash…and, yes, I’m taking that coincidence to be predictively meaningful).

As I have noted countless times since 2017, the Saturn-Ketu conjunction occurs in Sagittarius, which is America’s ascendant, so this conjunction represents a particularly strong challenge for America. Such conjunctions (even in other signs besides Sagittarius) have caused financial downturns and “panics” many times in world history since at least the year 1800, most likely because one of the biggest astrological effects of Saturn and Ketu is to promote fear—and fear causes people to liquidate things like stocks and speculative real estate. These conjunctions have also been correlated with military conflict and aggression (the most likely times for such aggression this year, even if it’s within a single country like the US, is around April 30/May 1 and mid-June, followed by July 4 and late-Sept/Oct).

June:
As I’ve said a few times recently, this June is a terrible month for Trump. It is also just a rough month in general, astrologically speaking. This astrology won’t help the market recover from its April/May dive—and may even drive the market lower (in other words, it may not be the right timing to buy stocks in late May or June just because the stock market tanks in April and May—there still may be more tanking yet to come after May).

September-October:
It’s even likely that the markets will struggle all the way into this coming fall. Saturn and Ketu will be conjunct for the final time in late September (they’re also conjunct on July 4th), and they will still remain problematically close to each other through October. Mars squares both Saturn and Ketu in the second half of October, so the markets could well be depressed by this year’s negative astrology until about Halloween (October 31). Elsewhere I’ve said that I think Trump will be leaving office between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it is possible that the brewing Trump ordeal itself will adversely affect the markets this fall. But, it’s also possible that the negative astrology will manifest in a way that doesn’t involve the market at that point. But at the very least, the negative astrology this fall won’t be helping the market recover from the plunge that I think is coming this spring, even if this fall’s astrology isn’t driving the markets further down then.

One way for investors to handle the above predictions is obviously just to sell stocks now and wait until November or so before buying any stocks again. The other way, if one wishes to play the risk game a little more, would be to divide one’s stock portfolio into thirds, investing 1/3 in mid to late May, another third in mid-July, and the last third around Thanksgiving. This way, one would have a chance of catching the absolute bottom of the market with at least one third of their stock portfolio. The risk, however, is that one could invest up to two-thirds of their portfolio prematurely, before stocks have reached their absolute lowest point. In any case, being out of the market this April and May is likely to save one from major losses. I’m not a financial advisor, so I’m just pointing out some possible approaches here, and I’ll leave the actual financial planning advice to the experts.

If you want to play it safe, then just avoid stocks until at least December this year.

As I posted recently on Facebook and in my last article, Robert Mueller has three big astrological peaks left this year. The first one happens in the next week or two, but the other two peaks happen in late-June/early-July and October/November. So whatever Robert Mueller does in the next two weeks is not the end of his work, even though it will be big. In fact, I think it may turn out to be some kind of a beginning, since Mueller’s three astrological peaks are represented by a single kind of astrology (Saturn over the ascendant), which suggests that these three peaks are building upon each other.

I said in my last article that I wouldn’t be surprised if Mueller gave “some kind of a final report” soon, but I also said that any such report wouldn’t reach its “finality” until late this fall, during Mueller’s thirdastrological window. So, if Mueller does make a report that looks like his finished work within the next couple weeks, he will nevertheless be dragged back into the ensuing process of unraveling that report over the rest of the year, and particularly in June/July and October/November.

Obviously, the other possibility is that his big move over the next couple weeks is not his final move, and that he still has much work to finish on his probe by this fall. Either way, Mueller will still be busy with the Trump case until nearly the end of 2019.

I think that we are likely to see some kind of combination of the above two scenarios. It may look something like this:

Over the next two weeks, Mueller makes a very big move that is meant to appear conclusive. Then, Mueller is subjected in March to a major campaign to discredit, invalidate and marginalize that move by Trump supporters (Mueller has an intense few days around March 9, which is either hard work to make his next big move then, or some heavy backlash from that big move dropping just before March 9). Because of Trump’s boosting and protective Jupiter-Moon conjunction right now, it will initially look like the winds are in Trump’s favor. Thus, his summit this week with Kim Jung-un will likely be touted widely as a success (Trump is likely to be deceptive and deluded about the results of his summit with Kim, and we won’t really be able to determine its success or failure until at least mid-May). More to the present point, AG Bill Barr is less likely to divulge all the dirt on Trump this spring, if Barr were to receive the Mueller report in the next week or two. Regardless, Trump has the astrology of major grandstanding, lying and fighting/aggression for virtually all of March.

But June will be a different story.

I’m convinced now that Mueller finishes his Ketu subperiod this spring. Since Mueller hasn’t made his big move yet, this indicates that his ascendant degree is more like 24 degrees of Sagittarius, which means that his stifling Ketu subperiod probably ends by May, and maybe even as soon as early-April (we’ve been watching for Mueller’s next big move, the timing of which will enable us to deduce his ascendant degree, which we already knew must fall within the range of 20-24 degrees of Sagittarius). So, Mueller will regain his power just as Trump’s tough June astrology begins to drag Trump down, and Mueller will be potently involved this summer in ways that are very dangerous for Trump (regardless of whether Mueller is still conducting his investigation then or has issued his final report already). Jupiter won’t be protecting or promoting Trump so much then.

It’s also worth noting here that if the economy crashes this spring, then Trump will face opposition on a whole other front as well by then (of course, many people will say that the investigation of Trump was to blame for the economic hardships).
Whatever Mueller is working on in late June and early July, it will essentially amount to collecting steam for his final push on the Trump case this fall. That final push, and not whatever Mueller is about to do now, is what I think will eventually force Trump out of the presidency by Christmas (although Mueller’s move in the next week or two will definitely send damaging shock waves in Trump’s direction, regardless, which will move Trump towards his eventual exit).

That’s all I have time to write for now, but please review my last two articles for supplemental details.

I don’t know when my next full article will be finished, but I’m committed to covering the more uplifting topic of compassion in that post. It will be nice to look into such a beautiful aspect of life at that time.

 

May you rise high above the illusory ego-drama until we reconnect…!

As I posted recently on Facebook and in my last article, Robert Mueller has three big astrological peaks left this year. The first one happens in the next week or two, but the other two peaks happen in late-June/early-July and October/November. So whatever Robert Mueller does in the next two weeks is not the end of his work, even though it will be big. In fact, I think it may turn out to be some kind of a beginning, since Mueller’s three astrological peaks are represented by a single kind of astrology (Saturn over the ascendant), which suggests that these three peaks are building upon each other.

I said in my last article that I wouldn’t be surprised if Mueller gave “some kind of a final report” soon, but I also said that any such report wouldn’t reach its “finality” until late this fall, during Mueller’s third astrological window. So, if Mueller does make a report that looks like his finished work within the next couple weeks, he will nevertheless be dragged back into the ensuing process of unraveling that report over the rest of the year, and particularly in June/July and October/November.

Obviously, the other possibility is that his big move over the next couple weeks is not his final move, and that he still has much work to finish on his probe by this fall. Either way, Mueller will still be busy with the Trump case until nearly the end of 2019.

I think that we are likely to see some kind of combination of the above two scenarios. It may look something like this:

Over the next two weeks, Mueller makes a very big move that is meant to appear conclusive. Then, Mueller is subjected in March to a major campaign to discredit, invalidate and marginalize that move by Trump supporters (Mueller has an intense few days around March 9, which is either hard work to make his next big move then, or some heavy backlash from that big move dropping just before March 9). Because of Trump’s boosting and protective Jupiter-Moon conjunction right now, it will initially look like the winds are in Trump’s favor. Thus, his summit this week with Kim Jung-un will likely be touted widely as a success (Trump is likely to be deceptive and deluded about the results of his summit with Kim, and we won’t really be able to determine its success or failure until at least mid-May). More to the present point, AG Bill Barr is less likely to divulge all the dirt on Trump this spring, if Barr were to receive the Mueller report in the next week or two. Regardless, Trump has the astrology of major grandstanding, lying and fighting/aggression for virtually all of March.

But June will be a different story.

I’m convinced now that Mueller finishes his Ketu subperiod this spring. Since Mueller hasn’t made his big move yet, this indicates that his ascendant degree is more like 24 degrees of Sagittarius, which means that his stifling Ketu subperiod probably ends by May, and maybe even as soon as early-April (we’ve been watching for Mueller’s next big move, the timing of which will enable us to deduce his ascendant degree, which we already knew must fall within the range of 20-24 degrees of Sagittarius). So, Mueller will regain his power just as Trump’s tough June astrology begins to drag Trump down, and Mueller will be potently involved this summer in ways that are very dangerous for Trump (regardless of whether Mueller is still conducting his investigation then or has issued his final report already). Jupiter won’t be protecting or promoting Trump so much then.

It’s also worth noting here that if the economy crashes this spring, then Trump will face opposition on a whole other front as well by then (of course, many people will say that the investigation of Trump was to blame for the economic hardships).
Whatever Mueller is working on in late June and early July, it will essentially amount to collecting steam for his final push on the Trump case this fall. That final push, and not whatever Mueller is about to do now, is what I think will eventually force Trump out of the presidency by Christmas (although Mueller’s move in the next week or two will definitely send damaging shock waves in Trump’s direction, regardless, which will move Trump towards his eventual exit).

That’s all I have time to write for now, but please review my last two articles for supplemental details.

I don’t know when my next full article will be finished, but I’m committed to covering the more uplifting topic of compassion in that post. It will be nice to look into such a beautiful aspect of life at that time.

 

May you rise high above the illusory ego-drama until we reconnect…!

 

Comment added Feb. 27:

For any who might wonder, this article is meant to supplement my January article, not supersede it. That is, I published “The Deep Dive” in order to contextualize Robert Mueller’s next move and to give ample warning about the stock market perils this spring. This new article is not meant to imply that I no longer think Trump will be facing heavy accountability this March, as I said he would in my last article. So, my reference to Trump having “the winds in his favor” doesn’t mean that he won’t be facing any headwinds at the same time; it just means that he has sufficient protection from those headwinds for a couple months, on balance. I’m just not sure when I’ll have time to publish another piece, so I wanted to get one out last night while I had the chance.

Historic 2019: What More Lies Ahead and How to Be Your Best This Year

2019 is going to be really historic.

So, what more lies ahead in 2019?

Well, I can start answering the question by first just saying that, compared to 2019, the political chaos of 2018 will look like the “calm before the storm,” even though this year will also be full of wondrous technological breakthroughs (the full effects of which may take many years to surface in our daily lives).

Overall, this article’s aim is twofold:

1) To address the double entendre in its title, “What More Lies Ahead…?” and

2) To suggest how each of us can be at our best, regardless of what 2019 has to offer.

Buckle your seatbelts, everybody, because we’re in for a pretty wild ride over the next month, and even over the next year!

We’ll be zigging and zagging and rising and plunging with Whitaker & Mueller, Cohen & Manafort, Trump and his children, and even Judge Kavanaugh! If you’ve ever ridden Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland, then I think you’ve had a pretty good preview of what next year could feel like.

What Lies Ahead this Autumn: How Will Trump’s Fall Play Out?

I am turning a corner in this post, in that I’m going to take a firm position on the truth concerning some of the Trump controversies—and will write accordingly. I won’t be doing this for politically partisan reasons, but having settled for myself the truth behind certain controversies surrounding Trump, I now feel ready to make some astrological predictions for the rest of this year and 2019…

I have a lot to cover, as usual, so I will begin by just listing the key predictions in bullet form:

How Astrology Could Trigger the Biggest Renaissance Yet (Part 2)

This article covers one of my favorite topics: the amazing insights that humanity could make about ourselves and the universe if we were to accept that astrology was legitimate. That is, I’m attempting to take you on an astounding mental journey, beginning with some basic assumptions about astrology and arriving at some major hidden insights that those assumptions (if true) reveal. These insights concern important information about who we are and about life in the universe.

About a month ago, I posted Part 1 of this article, so this second post will be the article’s conclusion. Last month, I promise that this current post would enumerate a fourth reason why astrology could trigger the biggest Renaissance the world has ever seen, but I have decided to include a fifth reason in this post as well. After completing this article, I will return to posting more political updates about Trump, etc., as many of you have requested.
