Most astrologers use a variety of techniques to “look into the future” of an individual to make predictions. Some of those analytic tools or techniques are known as transits, secondary progressions, solar arc directions, solar return charts, synastry charts, and natal charts.
One of the most important astrological techniques for making predictions is creating a transit chart. A transit chart is made from the birth chart. The transit chart shows the day-to-day or future positions of the planets in relation to the person’s birth (or, natal) chart. Through the interpretation of the angles and the relative position of the planets from the transit chart to the birth chart – a professional astrologer can tell the future events for that person and make very accurate forecasts and predictions.
Another important technique used for making predictions are progressions. Progressed charts are created by progressing the person’s horoscope forward from the moment of birth into the future. There are two main forms of progressions: Secondary progressions based on “a day for a year” progression; and, Solar arc progression which are based on “a degree for a year” progression. Progressed charts are created by analyzing angles made by the “progressed” planets to the natal planets; and analyzing the angles made from progressed planets to each other. This analysis makes it possible to make accurate predictions about the events that will happen in a person’s life.

2015 – No Predictions posted
TOP 10 Predictions – 2014 By Larry Schwimmer
#1. President Obama: Scandal or Success?
President Obama’s personal astrology suggests that he’s at a crossroads in terms of his popularity and trustworthiness in eyes of the American public. As predicted, he was involved in a series of scandals in 2013 (i.e., revelations about a cover-up in Benghazi; IRS unfairness to groups opposed to him; dishonesty in the president’s pledge that people could “keep their health plan if they liked it.”). This has resulted in his lowest approval rating, with more than 50% of people disapproving of his job performance and believing him untrustworthy.
Neptune makes a very stressful aspect to his Moon and his Pluto through 2015, so his public image remains at risk. He’s again likely to be involved in more “cover-ups” and scandals. However, because of a very favorable aspects from Jupiter to his Uranus, and Sun, (which brings luck, success and popularity) he can avoid these problems and regain public trust by being transparent and keeping his word.
In fact, he should experience a reversal of fortune in the public’s view of him, starting in September. This is likely to translate in his party regaining control of the House and maintaining control in the Senate. But his success and good fortune will rest with whether he can re-gain trust and re-establish his credibility with the American public.
#2. Stock Market Crash
Based on political gridlock, bad economic data, mounting debt, and talk of an end to quantitative easing, expect a 20% – 30% decline in the USA Stock Market by April 2014 (with April the most likely month). The correction may begin as early as January 2014 and continue on into September-October until the mid-term elections occur.
#3. Expect Quantitative Easing to Continue
During the 1st Quarter, expect the new Fed Chair, Janet Yellin, to talk of tapering and the discontinuance of quantitative easing. However, based on disappointing economic data and a severe downturn in the stock market, the Fed will continue its accommodating monetary policies of low interest rates and QE in 2014.
#4. Housing & Real Estate
Here’s great news for those of you wondering when is the best time to buy a home. Jupiter is in the sign of Cancer until July 2014. This is indicative of a continuation of the healthy recovery in the housing and real estate market that began in 2013. With the likely continuation of quantitative easing and low interest rates, you still have an excellent opportunity to buy a home at a favorable price. Best of all real estate will be in a strong uptrend with prices rising into the year 2020.
#5. Best Investment in 2014-15
The grains market, consisting of corn, wheat, and soybeans will provide a tremendous opportunity for investors, who’ll benefit from the Uranus-Pluto cycle occurring over the next two years. This cycle signifies potential damage to crops based on drought, severe weather and natural phenomena. This is same planetary cycle that occurred during the Great Depression between 1932-34, producing the “Dust Bowl” era in the 1930’s where dust storms did tremendous damage to crops. After June, look for grain prices, especially corn and wheat to sharply rise in the summer-fall period and throughout 2014. Thanks to a plethora of “ETF” funds you can conveniently invest in these commodities, just as you would any common stock.
#6. Adoption of a New World Currency
Based on the debt, escalation of spending, default and bankruptcies – world currencies experience sudden reversals and large price swings this year. Leaders of these nations meet to reform banking and monetary policy and agree that a new world currency is needed to bring fiscal sanity to all countries.
The precious metals prices have fallen victim to the more desirable investment in U.S. (and world) stock markets, which have benefited from a continuation of quantitative easing by the Fed. Metals prices may continue at their lows until July, when Jupiter enters the sign of LEO on July 16, which is bullish for Gold. With a continuation of debt, credit problems, and severe fluctuations in world currencies and general uncertainty, look for Gold to rally into the fall.
#8. Big Secrets Revealed
The Uranus-Pluto cycle we are in from 2012-2015 has already revealed many cover-ups and secrets. Uranus rules sudden revelations. Pluto rules secrets (both hiding and revealing them). This is the period where the act of “spying” is on steroids, whether it’s nations spying on each other or their own citizens on the pretext of national security. If you recall, in 2013 the NSA was caught eavesdropping on German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The nature of this Uranus-Pluto cycle is that behind the scenes – world leaders, politicians, corporations and powerful individuals are suppressing knowledge and information for their own benefit. They want to control events to their own advantage. With Pluto in sign of Capricorn expect more “big secrets” to be revealed, causing outrage, revolt and talk of impeachment.
#9. More Revolutions
The Uranus-Pluto cycle, (occurring from 2012-2015) is part of the Cardinal Climax, which has already produced violent revolutions and new governments in Egypt and Libya; and now civil war in Syria. Iran may be next! In 2014, we could see the people of Iran (and other similarly repressed countries), finally revolt and overthrow their current regime. Also, look for this cycle to bring a terrorist act or the outbreak of war (with April and December to be considered especially dangerous months.)
#10. Major Mid-Term Election Upsets
The Cardinal Climax brings the power struggles of the White House and Congress into center stage. Expect voters to have a “throw the bums out” mentality during the November elections, which will translate into huge losses for anyone seen as being an obstructionist and partisan politician. This will be bad news for the Tea Party members of Congress or “establishment” incumbents. The effects of Uranus (which brings revolt, sudden upset and surprise) and Pluto (which brings “power grabs,” removal and termination) will result in many politicians being removed from office via the election process, impeachment or more underhanded means. Look for the emergence of independent candidates and the surprise of a large number of women winning their elections.
Summary: In 2014, we are heading toward the peak of the “Cardinal Climax.” This year will be a time of reckoning. The ill-advised actions taken by leaders in government, banking and business over the past six years can result in an explosion of our financial system causing great pain and suffering for us all. Or, these leaders can work together, compromise, and find solutions to problems such as exploding levels of debt, high unemployment and health care for all citizens. It’s their free choice to decide which path they take.
The good news is that after each Cardinal Climax, our country entered a new era where society was transformed, great economic growth and prosperity occurred, and everyone’s life became better.
TOP 10 Predictions – 2013 By Larry Schwimmer
#1 – President Obama: Popular But Facing Scandal
President Obama’s personal astrology suggests he will be popular in 2013. However, there are two concerns he must pay attention to this year. First: He’ll have to be very careful of his reputation. During the year he could be embroiled in a major scandal that will be damaging to his standing and public opinion. This scandal will be based on himself or a female staff member being accused of covering up some important information. Members of Congress who are against his policies and actions may use the scandal as a basis for calling for his impeachment (Uranus-Pluto). Secondly: There’s the possibility that Obama has a significant health issue demanding his attention.
#2 – U.S. Faces Bankruptcy
In the spring and early summer (with the Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto cycle) because of the debt crisis and a contentious Congress, the USA faces the threat of bankruptcy and another credit downgrade. There is danger that the U.S. economy will collapse under the weight of massive debt and runaway spending. We continue to live beyond our means, making up the difference through major government borrowing, indicating that fiscal mismanagement continues. The President and Congress are again locked in another battle, causing gridlock.
#3 – U.S. Temporarily Saved
In the summer, starting in July 2013, thanks to a miraculous astrological event (the Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine) our President and Congress finally stop fighting and agree to respond to the financial crisis with a serious plan to cut spending, reduce the nation’s debt and pass legislation to increase employment. It’s a time when leaders can work cooperatively to correct the mistakes of the past and begin the process of re-building the economy, re-employing people, reforming our system of government, and the tax code. This fortunate astrological cycle is our last hope to stop, or at least minimize, the calamity ahead. This is a time of optimism when a miracle is possible. The problems that everyone knows exist can be solved with government leaders working together for the benefit of us all.
Expect the following to occur: (a) tax increases to raise revenues; (b) agreements on spending cuts to reduce the deficit; (c) new laws and regulations to help insure compliance; (d) Legislation to increase employment. The big question will be: Are these efforts too little, too late? Astrologically, it appears that whatever our government does in the summer will still bring us into financial crisis in 2014-2015.
#4 – U.S. Stock Market Rallies this Summer
The stock market responds with an exuberant rally! As a result of legislative agreements made in July, (i.e. discussed in Prediction #3) there’s much optimism with the belief that the USA has tackled the debt problem and is now ready to grow and prosper. The months that follow will show that the economy is growing and unemployment data will confirm that we are moving into a positive trend. Expect Wall Street to be celebrating!
#5 – U.S. Stock Market Decline Leading to a Crash
Despite the stock market’s rally, it’s apparent at the end of the summer and by the fall 2013 that our problems have not really been addressed. Contrary to earlier optimism and preliminary indications that the economy was turning around, reality shows that governmental spending hasn’t really slowed despite the rhetoric and promises of politicians. There are signs that the economy is slowing down; unemployment gains disappear, with the consumer-spending rate declining, causing companies to begin further layoffs. The country is moving on a downward path indicating that systemic fiscal problems in the economy have not been resolved.
The stock market is vulnerable to a crash starting in the summer of 2013, (Jupiter/Uranus cycle + Jupiter-Pluto). Dates to watch the markets closely start in August 2013, into February and April of 2014. The highest likelihood for the major crash period will be in April 2014 (during the Uranus-Pluto Cycle) sending the Dow to 5,000 by the end of 2014. This same planetary cycle occurred in 1930-31 and again between 1986-87.
#6 – Housing & Real Estate
Great news for those of you wondering when is the best time to buy a home? Jupiter will move into the sign of Cancer in June 2013 until July 2014 we will finally see a bottom to the housing and real estate market. You’ll find that this time period will give you an excellent opportunity to buy a home at a favorable price. Best of all real estate will be in a strong uptrend with prices rising into the year 2020.
#7 – Best Investment in 2013-2015
The grains market, consisting of corn, wheat, and soybeans, will provide a tremendous opportunity for investors, who’ll benefit from the Uranus-Pluto cycle occurring from 2012-2015. This cycle signifies potential damage to crops based on draught, severe weather and natural phenomena. This is same planetary cycle that occurred during the Great Depression between 1932-34, producing the “Dust Bowl” era in the 1930’s where dust storms did tremendous damage to crops.
While weather growing conditions may be excellent for crops this summer and drive prices “temporarily” lower, look to invest in the grains market no later than the fall for big gains into 2014-2015. Thanks to a plethora of “ETFs” funds you can conveniently invest in these commodities, just as you would any common stock.
#8 – Euro Union
In the summer of 2013 (Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto) a banking and financial crisis occur in the Euro nations with more threats of default like in the past with Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy. There is a danger of financial panic and a run on banks. As a result: (a) it’s likely that both the USA and China will be called upon to lend money to the European Union to help them out of their debt crisis and forestall financial ruin; (b) a major reform in the euro currency this year; (c) Certain nations in the European Union will be asked to leave.
#9 – Iran Revolution + Nuclear Bomb and War
The Uranus-Pluto cycle (which occurs seven times within 2012-2015) has already produced violent revolutions and new governments in Egypt and Libya and now civil war in Syria. Iran is next! In the fall of 2013 and early 2014 the people of Iran may revolt and overthrow the current regime. A bloody military conflict could ensue. At this time, it may become clear that Iran has developed a nuclear bomb. This news creates grave military threats by Israel in concert with the United States. Look for an outbreak of war in the Middle East some time from December 2013 to August 2014 (Uranus-Pluto Cycle).
#10 – Oil & Gold Skyrocket!
Oil will skyrocket from the late fall into 2014 based on these factors: Firstly, the political instability of Iran as the Iranian people revolt against their leaders; Secondly, Iran’s development of a nuclear bomb creates the threat of war in the Middle East, along with fear that the Straits of Hormuz may be blocked, thus causing a disruption in the distribution of crude oil from the region (Uranus-Pluto Cycle).
Look for gold to trade between $1,900-$2,100, making all-time highs from the fall into 2014. Gold may flounder in the coming months and even lose value into September of 2013. But starting in September, It will resume its bull market based on political unrest, world tensions and the likelihood of war. Gold will also greatly benefit from continued economic instability, unresolved world debt, continued threat of inflation, and a likely de-valuation of world currencies.
Presidential Prediction in – 2012 By Larry Schwimmer
My only prediction is that President Obama will win re-election.
Based on analyzing Barack Obama’s birth chart and the transits that will be occurring around November 6, 2012, I predict he will be re-elected President for a 2nd term.
