The next few months involve an astrological "Cardinal Climax" conducive to the crash portion of the "Apocalypse Wave" I believe is now unfolding. The kickoff might be a lunar eclipse conjunct Pluto on June 26th that is currently relevant:
(The start of the four cardinal signs are represented by the thicker black lines dividing the zodiac diagram into four parts. Note the alignments along the cardinal sign axes above....that's what a "Cardinal Climax" means.)
From a recent interview with renown financial astrologer, Arch Crawford:
Q: Does energy from difficult alignments reveal itself in ways that go beyond financial markets?
A: In April 1986 we had a Lunar Eclipse conjunct Pluto. The close proximity with Pluto is rare. So we told subscribers, "If you don't feel this one, you're not alive!" We were prophetic, as the April 26th Chernobyl accident raised radiation levels worldwide.
By the way, we have another Lunar Eclipse conjunct with Pluto on June 26. Pluto “rules” nuclear power, debt, interest rates, and the use of force, say the astrologers. Maybe June 26 is the de facto start of the Cardinal Climax.
In November 1989, we observed a Saturn conjunct with Neptune, both opposite Jupiter to the day. This alignment happens every hundreds of years; i.e., it is extremely rare. Several days later the Berlin Wall fell.
In our July 1990 we told subscribers, “This will be one of the worst days of the century. There will be coercion, the use of force, a large explosion and heartlessness or cruelty August 2-7." On Aug. 2, Saddam Hussein unexpectedly attacked Kuwait. What alarmed me was the Lunar Eclipse forming another Grand Cross, this time with Mars opposite Pluto.
In the Market Watch section of the July 16th, 1990 issue of 'Barron's', there is an excerpt from the Crawford's investment letter:
"...Aug. 6 (Lunar Eclipse squares Mars + Pluto). Expect some major catastrophe on that last one, Aug. 2-7, as something explodes in a big way... Astronomically similar to the Chernobyl disaster..."
Also note that Russia invaded Georgia with a solar/lunar eclipse pair and square of Mars and Pluto in the first part of August in 2008, a similar configuration to what occurred with the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 and Iraq's 1990 invasion of Kuwait.
Given the historical pattern, the world bears close watching given the upcoming lunar eclipse conjunct Pluto ("Pluto" representing nuclear energy, i.e., "Pluto"nium) along with the accompanying total solar eclipse on July 11th (the 1st of Av on the Hebrew calendar....a potentially prophetic point I highlighted with a similar solar eclipse last year).
We are now entering the "Puetz eclipse crash window" associated with the upcoming lunar eclipse.
Several years back, a cycle watcher named Steve Puetz attempted to see if eclipses and market crashes were somehow related. He studied eight of the greatest crashes in financial history, from the Holland Tulip Mania of 1637 to the Nikkei of 1990. He found that market crashes tend to occur near full moons, and that the greatest number of crashes start after the first full moon after a solar eclipse, when that full moon is also a lunar eclipse. Puetz found that all eight crashes occurred six days before to three days after a full moon that occurred within six weeks of a solar eclipse. The odds of that being a coincidence, Puetz calculated, are less than 1 in 127,000.
Puetz was not saying that so-called "Puetz windows" always lead to crashes, but that if a crash is going to occur, a Puetz window would be the likely time frame in which it would happen. Puetz windows tend to occur every year or two, while crashes are rare events. (SOURCE)
He....concludes that a full moon in general and a lunar (eclipse) full moon close to solar eclipses, in particular, seem to be the triggering device that allows for the rapid transformation of investor psychology from manic greed to paranoia (SOURCE).
According to Arch Crawford, the upcoming lunar eclipse might mark "the de facto start of the 'Cardinal Climax'".
On August 1, give or take a week, we’ll have the most five-planet alignments in perhaps thousands of years. Known as the “Cardinal Climax,” this is the meanest, nastiest, most challenging and most transformational of any planetary phenomena in all of written history!
Here's the astrological chart for August 1st:
From Crawford's interview:
Q: What do you see?
A: This is the view of the planets from New York City on Aug. 1, at 6am. We have the most planets in the tightest alignments and at the supposedly 'sensitive' Zero degrees of Cardinal signs. It makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
I looked at records going back to the 1800’s, and this is the most difficult alignment I found. When I was at a conference in Boston last month, someone said this was the most difficult alignment they have seen in the last "1,000 years." Another person told me this is the worst alignment in "10,000 years."
Q: What are possible consequences?
Worst cases include a nuclear accident. Nuclear war. Massive societal collapse. Maybe a pole flip, which can wipe out nearly everything.
Cardinal Climax is especially intimidating because of the proximity to the widely touted Mayan Calendar End Date. Plus, the Christians are looking for the Return of Jesus and/or the Rapture, the Muslims await the return of the umteenth Imam, the White Buffalo has been born, and Jews are fighting over the right to rebuild Solomon's Temple on the 'temple mount' in Jerusalem. These are all signs of “end times” by many different cultures.
The one thing most convincing to me is that there are more people alive on the planet today than all who have ever lived in recorded history. So it may be that every soul is on board for this event!
I believe the Cardinal Climax got started with the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus which was opposed by Saturn at 0 degrees Aries on June 8th. On June 9th the U.N. Security Council approved new sanctions on Iran:
Notably, "Iran" literally stands for "Land of the Aryans". The conjunction occurred just as Jupiter and Uranus entered "Aries", the zodiacal sign for Aryans.
Given this connection, one should particularly focus upon events concerning Iran in the context of the other aspects of this Cardinal Climax. Likewise, Korea bears close watching.
As for why astrology has been uncannily accurate in recent decades in forecasting world history, this might have more to do with man than God IMHO.
Truly there is strong evidence that "astroharmonics" matter in the formation of Elliott Wave patterns and fluctuations in mass mood connected to world history. Chris Carolan's work on Autumn panics and the "Spiral Calendar" is particularly revealing on this point, as is Steve Puetz discovery of a connection between financial panics and eclipses. Multiple academic studies have shown a correlation between stock market returns and the lunar cycle. Also, there's the historical pattern of major stock market turning points at psychologically important thousand marks at the time of planetary alignments:
Finally, there's key episodes of extreme market reversals in connection with major planetary alignments like occurred in 1962 and 1987.
Thus, there was likely good reason that ancient civilizations developed astrological beliefs as they closely watched the stars, sun and moon (particularly in agrarian societies) and noted correlations with social phenomena over eons of history.
But even with the evidence in favor of astrology, I believe the correlation between astrological configurations and recent history has been too close and specific to be solely due to astroharmonics. Rather, I believe that one of the reasons astrology is effective at the current juncture is because people in positions of power are intentionally shaping history according to the stars. Thus, history is very much the fate that man makes for himself, even in the fulfillment of doomsday prophecies.
"History is a capricious creature. It depends on who writes it." - Mikhail Gorbachev
"Astrology is a quite serious science. It helps us launch spacecraft, missiles; we use it broadly to forestall suicides among the personnel. Experience shows it is unreasonable to reject it. Our estimates and forecasts are usually corroborated up to 70-75 percent." - Viktor Yakovlev, Commander of the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces
"Believe it or not, every three months a summary of astrological prognoses predicting the place and date of future extraordinary occurrences is sent from the St. Petersburg Naval Scientific Research Institute to the Russian Defense Ministry's General Staff." - Komsomolskaya Pravda; January 21, 1998
Lastly, one might note that the upcoming lunar eclipse and Cardinal Climax appear to be centered on my birthdate:
What is God up to?
