As a long time practicing astrologer and psychic I am routinely asked, by believers and skeptics, the same question: How accurate are these predictive arts using astrology? While I never claim that any method of metaphysical forecasting is flawless, I do point out that history has countless examples of practitioners of the mystic sciences being able ’see’ events in the future and to forecast trends of destiny.
Several times during the year, I will look back on prognostications that I have made and measure them against current events to examine my own accuracy. This is my way of reminding myself that, regardless of skills and gifts that I and other psychics and practitioners may possess, the Universe always has the first move. Even so, measuring what I have seen against what has occurred makes for an interesting tally on my astrological scorecard.
In December 2011, I released my 2012 Predictions on both Kindle and Nook websites and on January 22nd, revised and updated this collection and entitled it 2012 Stars and Stones. Both editions contained this observation:
“ (Pluto) The Dark Lord reverses course on April 10th still in the sign of the Sea Goat. The intensity of this position, coupled with the force of the retrograde is going to make the spring very interesting, to say the least. Pluto Retrograde highlights weakness while Capricorn deals with power and hierarchies. Expect more revelations about how “hollow” the current system is that could cause a major crisis involving a government official sometime between April 10th and the 19th.”
On Saturday, April 14, 2012, the scandal involving the Secret Service hiring prostitutes in Columbia ahead of a major conference to by attended by the President. The story has grown and now DEA agents are also being investigated on similar charges as well as member of the military who were part of the advance contingent.
Also in 2012 Stars and Stones was the following excerpt from the rune casting portion of the book:
“1st Six Months Bridge – Sowelo – This is the rune of wholeness and clarity and is both appropriate and timely as it also denotes the end of winter and the start of the warmth of the year. During these first six months, we may get a chance to see “the funny old man behind the curtain” (figuratively and, possibly, literally) as some scandals/revelations are going to illuminate exactly how the financial crisis occurred on a global scale and who or what stands to profit by keeping things unsettled. Failures in governments will also come to light-perhaps with some shocking results.”
The ongoing failure of Greece to even form a government certainly is the most glaring aspect of this prediction but, by no means, the only one:
February 17, 2012 – German President Christian Wulff resigns as the result of a financial scandal where he was accepting ‘favors’ to influence policy.
February 21, 2012 – A top executive at Olympus commits suicide in the midst of a major accounting scandal and investigation at the company.
March 14, 2012 – An op-ed article by Greg Smith, a former executive at Goldman Sachs, explains in detail how clients’ interests are routinely ignored in the name of making a profit for the firm.
While the revelation on May 11, 2012, that J.P. Morgan Chase suffered a minimum of a $2 Billion dollar loss through risky investment activities, not unlike those which crashed the world economy in 2008 is most certainly a part of this list. It is also important that this singular event (whose total impact may not yet be felt) was also referenced in a subsequent article The Financial Future that I wrote on April 30th. Referencing the impact of the Pluto retrograde in Capricorn that began on April 10th:
“In the sign of Capricorn, the structural aspects of our world such as our financial and banking systems will receive the full brunt of the Dark Lord’s focus. Things hidden will be brought to light; given that Pluto governs big business, crime and the underworld and also the Great Depression… As Pluto’s 160 day rearward dance progresses, and some of these hidden truths become revealed, karmic balance is going to make hit those who have taken advantage of the system the hardest; regrettably since they are also in control, the trickle-down to the rest of us will also be significant.”
The political arena also appears to have made it to my astrological radar. On January 16th in my article entitled: Mercury Retrograde Affects 2012 Elections this observation was made:
“Clearly, what comes out of Super Tuesday may have a far different slant than anyone may have believed going in. With the Messenger staying reversed until April 4th, the communications chaos will not lessen even as the ‘winners’ (who ultimately may not be) and the ‘losers’ (who may not be done) try to spin their way out of Mercury’s Web.”
The war of words between Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and the rest certainly continued unabated for a significant period of time beyond Super Tuesday with echoes still reverberating through present day. For one candidate, however, my words of Feb 22nd in the article Knock Knock certainly projected his future course:
“The retrograde energies of Mercury, Mars and Saturn will be magnified and reinforced by each other from March 12th through April 4th On the political front, I believe that at least one prominent figure is going to learn his (or her) limitations in a rather dramatic fashion that will cause them to recalculate the future that they had planned for themselves.”
Gingrich ended his campaign for the nomination roughly two weeks later.
This also extends to politics beyond our borders as mentioned in my article Dark Side of the Moon written on May 2nd:
“Since the holiday is a celebration of the defeat of the French on May 5th, 1862 by Mexican forces, it would not be surprising if France and or Mexico again were illuminated by this ‘Super Moon’ as part of the sesquicentennial anniversary. Given that the second round run-off of the Presidential Election is also scheduled for May 5th and 6th, there could be a literal turning of the tides that could shape not only the political but financial landscape of the Eurozone as well.”
As is well known, Francois Hollande, a socialist, won the French presidency and, in doing so, has completed shaken the political landscape of Europe leaving many to wonder whether the Euro Union will survive much longer.
The astrological impact on Earth itself was something that I felt strongly about and expressed in the previously mentioned February 22nd Knock Knock article:
“Geologically speaking, the Earth, too, may let loose a “secret” in the form of a volcano or major earthquake especially during he early part of this retro-from April through the end of June.”
And on May 2nd in Dark Side of the Moon:
“The Moon’s impact on weather and the oceans should not be discounted either. With Neptune – the Sea King – also going retrograde during this eclipse, seismic, meteorological or volcanic activity may come within that week”
The earthquakes in Italy on May 20th, the day of the eclipse, has shocked seismologists around the world by how shallow it was and that it occurred in a low risk area. Damage to some of the ancient treasures of Italy is still being assessed but officials in the region feel that it could be “significant”. And just today, May 22nd, Bulgaria has been impacted by a 5.2 tremor with damages yet to be assessed.
Yet these two events were not the only ones which have occurred between April and June. Here is a short list of some of the other events:
April 11-An 8.6 earthquake with an 8.2 after shock near Sumatra
May 14- a 6.2 earthquake near the Bolivian Peru border
May 19-6.1 earthquake off of northern Chile
Totally dwarfed in the news cycle by the Italian quakes, the 6.4 occurrence off of Honshu, Japan seems almost like an afterthought.
So, do astrologers and psychics truly have a window on the future? The answer to this question will continue to be debated with no resolution. Believers believe and doubters doubt. At the end of the day, all I can do is look at my “scorecard” and continue to provide counsel and guidance where I can.
