Every week in The Astrologer’s Diary I predict media headlines using horoscopes for countries (many people are surprised to hear that nations can have astrological charts, but they do) and well-known people. Unfortunately some politicians, like Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, still don’t release their birth data to astrologers, so sometimes the timing of predictions can be way out. In most cases, though, over the last 12 months it was possible to call the following news stories, before they happened.
WALL STREET CRISIS CHRISTMAS 2014
This prediction was actually published three years before it happened, back on 17th October 2011 in a feature on this website.
What you read – “Look at the road from November 12 2014 to Christmas. It is intense. It is stressful. And astrologers and astrologically savvy financiers should watch it carefully…Is the coming crisis an issue for the USA as a whole? Yes. The USA Federal Constitution Chart shows natal Mercury (trade) very close to 12 degrees. He stands at 11 Virgo 55. If you want to check that chart, the data is 17 September 1787, 4.00pm, Philadelphia, PA, USA. The time for astrology-savvy financiers to act is now. Three years before it happens.”
What happened next –
OIL SLUMP LEADS WALL STREET TO WORST WEEK IN TWO-AND-A-HALF YEARS
Reuters, New York, Friday December 12th, 2014: “U.S. stocks fell sharply on Friday, leaving the benchmark S&P 500 with its worst weekly performance since May 2012, as investors pulled back from the markets in response to oil’s free-fall and more weak data out of China.”
BABY BOOM AND A SECOND CHILD FOR KATE MIDDLETON
I made this prediction using Chinese astrology, along with Western astrology, in a story on The Year of the Horse. As it’s Royal protocol to wait before any announcement, the news came in September, although it’s very likely Kate Middleton did in fact conceive in the British 2014 summer.
What you read on this website back at the start of 2014 on Chinese New Year: “There will be a baby boom from July 2014 through August 2015 as the birth rates rise in several countries. Kate Middleton will welcome her second child by the British summer of 2015.”
What happened next, on September 8th 2014 –
THE ENGLAND FOOTBALL TEAM SCORE BIG IN MAY AND OCTOBER 2014
Okay, so their horoscope let them down for the World Cup, but as a long-time England supporter, I was very happy to predict success for them in May and October, using the team’s astrological chart, in one feature on 2014 published in December 2013 and another on the Cup, back in November 2013:
What you read: “From June 12th through July 13th, when Brazil hosts the Cup, England will be enjoying the afterglow of match preparation because what happens in May is fortunate and fated for her …Even England’s own coach is against me here, but I think the Three Lions will distinguish themselves with the very best of British luck.”
And: “This is a big, dramatic, feelgood summer as Jupiter roars into Leo, weeks after the World Cup Final. You have to wonder what it is about England’s performance in World Cup 2014 that is going to make the team, Roy Hodgson and the nation so elated when Jupiter bounces like a ball at 16, 17, 18, 19 Leo in October, four months after it’s all over.”
What happened next –
MAY 2014 ENGLAND 3, PERU 0
OCTOBER 2014 ENGLAND 5, SAN MARINO 0 and ENGLAND 1 – ESTONIA 0
UNFINISHED ECLIPSE BUSINESS – BENGHAZI, PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON
Benghazi still bothers me as an astrologer, because of the way the tragedy was linked to an eclipse hitting Hillary Clinton’s personal horoscope. In fact, Hillary Clinton managed to fly to Australia right across the eclipse path, after Barack Obama won the U.S. election. The Benghazi attack astrological timing also cuts right across the horoscopes of so many American Democrats that I don’t believe speculation will ever stop.
What you read, back on 30th December 2013, on this website: “I am going to repeat a prediction made before Barack Obama won the U.S. Presidential Election, which I posted here again at the end of 2012. Benghazi has not gone away and I would expect January 2014, when Saturn crosses the crucial 21 Scorpio position in the Democrats’ charts to be a turning point. There will be a further episode when Saturn moves to 21 Scorpio again, in April and October 2014.”
What happened next:
THE NEW YORK TIMES, JANUARY 15TH 2014: BENGHAZI ATTACK CALLED AVOIDABLE IN SENATE REPORT
THE WHITE HOUSE WEBSITE, APRIL 2ND 2014: INVESTIGATIVE REPORT ON THE TERRORIST ATTACK ON U.S. FACILITIES IN BENGHAZI OPEN HEARING.
THE WASHINGTON TIMES, OCTOBER 31st 2014: Former CBS news correspondent Sharyl Atkisson releases video, Friday, of her Benghazi files being systematically deleted from her computer.
AUSTRALIA AND THE PUSH FOR A REPUBLIC
I thought Australia’s repeated choice for a new Prime Minister, the anti-Royalist Malcolm Turnbull, would win leadership of the Liberal Party in July 2014, but I hadn’t reckoned on current Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s astrological birth chart – which he won’t confirm to astrologers! Did you know there are currently three different horoscopes circulating on the internet for the Australian Prime Minister, with three different birth times? No wonder it’s so hard to get the timing of his departure right. However, we can certainly verify the national Australian chart as a whole, and this is another prediction made in 2013, around three months before Australia’s Governor-General, the Queen’s representative, Quentin Bryce, publicly anticipated the end of the monarchy.
What you read: “The push for a republic comes close to July 2014, when transiting Jupiter in Cancer will make a perfect conjunction to Australia’s Uranus, in the Fourth House. It’s her best chance for independence from the mother country in 12 years. Shortly after this, Jupiter moves on to conjunct Australia’s IC, which describes her roots – where she comes from. Could Jupiter fix the problems that a large number of Australians have always had with being British subjects?”
What happened next, one month before the crucial July horoscope deadline:
ABC NEWS, June 3rd 2014: TURNBULL AGAIN IN POLL POSITION Just a few years ago Malcolm Turnbull’s approval rating was in the doldrums, now the leadership speculation has rounded on the Liberal Party and he is once again the favoured son.
And on 5th July the BBC ran this story: THE QUEEN – AUSTRALIA’S LAST MONARCH?
WHAT HAPPENS CLOSE TO FRIDAY 13TH JUNE IS FATED AND COMPLICATED FOR WORLD AIRLINES
As you can see from the astrological predictions above, the business of casting horoscopes can be an uncanny and reliable guide to world trends. After years in the profession, I have to say that I trust astrology more than I trust governments and the media – because astrology tells us the truth. In the light of this, we should all be concerned about this next prediction.
9th June, 2014, The Astrologer’s Diary: The Full Strawberry Moon on Friday 13th June is about airlines and airports. It takes place at 5.11am in London in the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius, which both astrology and history tell us describe domestic and long-haul flights. What are we seeing, very close to Friday 13th June? Essentially we are seeing our own future, as the drama which unfolds close to that date will have serious implications for the way we fly, in 2015 and 2016. One of the immediate problems may be Qantas, Australia’s troubled airline and one of the world’s most famous brands. You might also speculate that the truth about flight MH370 could also start seeping out. Another scenario might involve airline mergers, or closures. What happens close Friday 13th June 2014 is fated, and complicated, for world airlines and yet we won’t understand why until we get to December 2014, and specifically the years 2015 and 2016. Watch this space.
What happened next –
THE DAILY TELEGRAPH, 13TH JUNE: 13 PLANES VANISH FROM RADARS OVER EUROPE. “As many as 13 planes flying over Europe vanish from radar screens in an ‘unprecedented’ series of blackouts that lasted 25 minutes with claims air traffic control could have been hacked.”
ARE WE GOING TO SEE MORE VANISHING PLANES?…WE WILL FIND OUT SOONER THAN WE THINK
As the Full Moon in Sagittarius, the sign ruling airlines, was so accurate in predicting the mystery of 13 vanishing planes in Europe (to the day) it made sense that the arrival of Saturn in Sagittarius in December would also bring major issues for us to deal with. My question as an astrologer is why there has been no enquiry into the 13 disappearing aircraft – and why the mainstream media is ignoring the story in the light of the recent Air Asia tragedy. This, of course, happened in December, which brings in the next prediction.
What you read: 9th November 2014 – How will the world fly next year, 2015? We will find out sooner than we think, in November and December 2014 ,as the global horoscope begins to show activity in the sign of Sagittarius, which rules aircraft…As we pass through a crucial lunar cycle in Sagittarius as 2014 draws to a close, it seems very likely that our introduction to the hard realities of space travel and air travel in 2015 will be set up largely by the events of November and December this year. Watch this space. And keep watching your astrology….
Of course, 2014 was also the year that something new and disturbing began to affect the airline industry, as planes started to vanish from air traffic control screens. Was this a new innovation in airline terrorism, just waiting to happen? Or a NATO war game? Saturn in Sagittarius in 2015 and 2016 is a deep concern as it correlates with the first record of this, back in June 2014. Are we going to see more vanishing planes?
HUGE ELECTION VICTORY FOR UKIP IN THE UNITED KINGDOM
The polls were showing UKIP running second to David Cameron and the Conservatives when this story first appeared, but the astrology proved to be correct, and using Nigel Farage’s birth horoscope and the British chart, it was possible to see a major success for UKIP, with more ahead.
“This election is clearly a huge victory for UKIP in the United Kingdom but on what basis? Jupiter is on Mr Farage’s side and the 22nd May 2014 looks like being an historic day in the history of UKIP and Mr Farage. Once Jupiter moves into Virgo in August 2015 and begins to helpfully trine Mr Farage’s Taurus stellium (Taurus rules currency and the economy) it will be fascinating to see how he affects the status of the Euro and the Pound. That is, after all, a pound note on the UKIP logo.”
THE SCOTS WILL VOTE AGAINST INDEPENDENCE
What you read in The Astrologer’s Diary, September 15th, 2014
First up, will Scotland become independent following the vote on Thursday 18th September? I was shown a horoscope at the Astrological Association conference for the start of polling which reveals Saturn, the planet of pessimism, fear and paranoia in the Second House of the economy. It’s the Private Frazer (Dad’s Army) planet – the catchphrase being ‘We’re all doomed. Doomed, I tell ye!’ . That looks like a ‘No’ vote to me. The Scots will vote against independence on the basis of economic fear, shown by Saturn in the Second House. However, if you are a ‘Yes’ voter the good news is, they are holding the election on Mercury Retrograde Shadow, so this result will not stick. There will be another vote in time to come – wait.
FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR FISH GO WORLDWIDE
The Astrologer’s Diary, 17th February 2014:
What you read: “Fukushima Nuclear Fish go Worldwide. There will be more nuclear fish found worldwide following the Sun-Neptune conjunction in Pisces on Sunday 23rd February. The issue lasts for years.”
What happened next:
THE NEW YORK TIMES, 20th FEBRUARY 2014: WORST SPILL IN SIX MONTHS IS REPORTED AT FUKUSHIMA
Tokyo – About 100 tons of highly radioactive water leaked from one of the hundreds of storage tanks at the devastated Fukushima nuclear plant, its operator said Thursday, calling the leak the worst spill at the plant in six months.
