I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?” [Revelation 6:12-17]
A total lunar eclipse will occur on December 21st, the winter solstice, that will be visible in the U.S. The last time a lunar eclipse occurred on the winter solstice was December 1991. Shortly thereafter, on Christmas day, Mikhail Gorbachev resigned and the Soviet flag came down and Russian flag went up over the Kremlin. This signified the collapse of the Soviet Union and end of the Cold War.
With the end of the Soviet Union, the world embarked on a twenty year honeymoon between East and West during which everyone has come to believe that Russia and China do not engage in long-term planning, strategic deception and military force to dominate their enemies. Nevertheless, the British and French parliaments unanimously endorsed the Munich Accord, but this did not mean 'peace for their time' as Neville Chamberlain infamously declared.
What has really happened is that humankind has been utterly deceived. As Anatoliy Golitsyn forewarned, the West started being told "New Lies For Old" (1987) with the East's seeming forfeit of the Cold War.
With the upcoming lunar eclipse, there is reason to believe the long-term plan of the "Old Enemy" is nearing the endgame and the West's checkmate, i.e., the resurgence of "communism" and Eastern totalitarianism and the beginning of the Hot War. Even with all the evidence of this diabolical plot unfolding according to "Kremlin Astrology", no one sees the underlying conspiracy. Thus, the strategic objective of defeating the Western society is near.
A potential ignition point at this juncture is the Korean Peninsula where the demilitarized zone (DMZ) separating North and South Korea is the last active battle front between the Communist East and Capitalist West (no peace treaty was ever signed in the the wake of the Korean War).
Recent news is that South Korea will replay a military drill on the West Sea island of Yeonpyeong that led to a North Korean artillery barrage of the island. North Korea has threatened to strike again should the drill occur, except this time South Korea is prepared to hit back hard upon which North Korea vows to hit back harder, even with nuclear force.
Aggressive diplomacy is underway to get the Koreas to back away from a new conflict, including a visit to Pyongyang by former congressman Bill Richardson, so it is unknown how this will all play out, but the timing of the current crisis relative to the upcoming lunar eclipse seems telltale.
MASS PSYCHOLOGY DYNAMICS
Lunar eclipses can be associated with major reversals in mass mood per the discovery of Steve Puetz:
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).
The potential for a dramatic upset of collective confidence seems particularly high in the near-future given the Dow Jones Composite index appears to be peaking around the psychologically significant 4000 mark as over-viewed in a recent blog:
On a few occasions reversals from thousand marks in the DJ Composite have coincided with significant historical shocks similar to the same phenomenon with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) as highlighted in my thesis:
Meanwhile, as noted my "Apocalypse Next?" blog, the Korean KOSPI index may be peaking just above the 2000 mark:
As examined in my recent blog, "Apocalypse Next?", at this juncture any reversal in mass mood could be of "Grand Supercycle" scale in the context of the Elliott Wave Principle:
That there is the potential for a historic crash in the coming days is further indicated by a new Hindenburg Omen signal registered this week:
Confirmed Hindenburg Omens are very rare. There have been only 28 confirmed Hindenburg Omen signals over the past 25 years. December 2010's is the 29th. This is amazing when you consider that during that time span, there were roughly 6,400 trading days. Of those 6,400 trading days where it was possible to generate a confirmed official Hindenburg Omen, only 197 (3.1 percent) generated one, clustering into 28 confirmed potential stock market crash signals.
If we define a crash as a 15% decline, of the previous 28 confirmed Hindenburg Omen signals, eight (28.5 percent ) were followed by financial system threatening, life-as-we-know-it threatening stock market crashes. Three (10.7 percent) more were followed by stock market selling panics (10% to 14.9% declines). Four more (14.3 percent) resulted in sharp declines (8% to 9.9% drops). Six (21.4 percent) were followed by meaningful declines (5% to 7.9%), five (17.8 percent) saw mild declines (2.0% to 4.9%), and two (7.1 percent) were failures, with subsequent declines of 2.0% or less. Put another way, there is a 28 percent probability that a stock market crash -- the big one -- will occur after we get a confirmed (more than one in a cluster) Hindenburg Omen. There is a 39.2 percent probability that at least a panic sell-off will occur. There is a 53.5 percent probability that a sharp decline greater than 8.0 % will occur, and there is a 74.9 percent probability that a stock market decline of at least 5 percent will occur. Only one out of roughly 14 times will this signal fail.
Thus, the ingredients are in place in mass psychology for a historic upset of collective confidence. This upset could take the form of a geopolitical shock, of which one appears possible on the Korean Peninsula in the coming days.
THE GLOBAL BIPOLAR DISORDER
The above considerations all fit rather precisely into my thesis that man as a species is literally insane and suffering from some sort of "Global Bipolar Disorder". In the context of this collective insanity, swings between mass mania and depression are associated with shifts in global dominance between the libertarian, decentralized West and authoritarian, centralized East:
Following an Elliott Wave Supercycle peak of man's creative mania into 1929, the subsequent cyclical collapse in mass mood involved the October '29 stock market crash, the Great Depression and the relative rise of totalitarian/collectivist powers in the East, i.e., Hitler's Germany, Mussolini's Italy, Tojo's Japan and Stalin's Russia, via the second world war. Relative Eastern dominance peaked into the early-1940s when Hitler had overrun continental Europe and the Axis powers were at their zenith of power. After that low a new Supercycle upswing in mass mood got underway involving the rise of American economic and military global supremacy. Over the last twenty years, with the seeming collapse of the Soviet Union, the dominance of the West reached a new historical extreme...
Thus, one should not be surprised if the onset of the "Apocalypse Wave" collapse in mass mood is associated with an outbreak of conflict between the Communist East and Capitalist West on the Korean Peninsula.
As I've noted before, that one of the initial targets in such a conflict is "Seoul", which means "capital" in Korean, seems historically symbolic in that what is afflicted, what is being handed over to the evil of destruction and tyranny after an era of creation and liberty, is the SOUL of humanity. Why is this the case? Because for falling into the temptation of human nature, our species is literally being delivered to the Evil One:
So what is the solution to this globally insane predicament?
I believe I've returned to this ill-fated world to act as a sort of "soul doctor" for man and help redeem our species from its insane misjudgment of reality. The truth is that in order for there to be peace and harmony in this world, we need to go against our selfish nature and let God's compassionate love for all lead our way. After all, the new reality derived from the revolutionary creative development of human society to-date is extreme INTERDEPENDENCY such that not loving others as ourselves is ultimately suicidal, a point I'm afraid is about to become all too clear.
