Astrological Predictions 2012-2013

Author : Barbara Goldsmith   Top Author

Last year, I predicted that once Uranus went into Aries we would see more revolts and more civil unrest. All over the Middle East and in Europe we’ve seen demonstrations, riots and discontent. The Occupy movement took roots around the world and I am predicting that this is just the start. There will be more violence, civilians will die, police will be killed and it will become more frenzied as the people see that their leaders are not really listening to them. The square from Uranus to Pluto will intensify the contrast between the majority of the people who feel they are being unjustly treated and the powers that be trying desperately to stay in control and to suppress the peoples’ wishes.

With Pluto in Capricorn since November 2008, we’ve seen an increase in natural disasters and with Uranus squaring Pluto I anticipate that we will see more disasters happening in the most unlikely places. I predicted more disasters this year and sadly that’s what we’ve seen with the series of earthquakes in Christchurch, the tsunami and earthquake in Japan, flooding in Thailand, the recent typhoon in the Philippines to name but a few.

With Neptune moving into Pisces on February 4th, there will be periods of utter calm, when it will feel as though everything is fine and there was nothing to be concerned about. People may ridicule you if you have decided to move to a safer area, or if you are preparing yourself and your family for a possible emergency situation. Don’t be fooled by this. Neptune is the master of illusion, so don’t allow your thinking to become unfocused. When you get the feeling of utter calm, like the calm before a storm, or just before a natural disaster when the animals disappear and the birds stop singing, that’s the time to be on red alert. Do not allow yourself to be lulled into a false sense of security.

With Neptune in Pisces until 2024, we’ll see issues coming up in politics around water. There will be more flooding than ever before, unexpected hurricanes, tornadoes, typhoons and storms and towns and cities will disappear in the twinkling of an eye.

Unemployment will continue to rise, the banks will receive more bailouts and governments will continue to print more money. We are due for a change in our financial system which has become unmanageable and inequitable. Another financial crisis is due. This happens roughly every 40 years. In 1971, Nixon took the US off the gold standard so now all fiat currencies globally are linked to nothing. In fact 97% of all financial transactions take place electronically and only 3% is actual cash! All paper money is just figures on a computer screen and is worth nothing!! It is created out of thin air. There is no substance to our financial system.

Governments can devalue the currency, cutting your wealth in half or worse overnight. This has already happened in countries such as Brazil and South America and there’s no reason why it cannot happen in Europe and in the US.

I predicted that the housing bubbles in the countries that still seemed to be doing well would burst: Australia has just reduced its growth predictions and dropped its interest rates, China’s growth prospects have been cut and New Zealand is also in a recession with property and land prices falling.

We’ll see the transfer of enormous wealth in a heartbeat. Even some of the very wealthy will lose everything overnight. Systems of finance are going to change and no matter what the experts think will happen, the actuality will be different. More people than ever will be affected. Pensions are no longer secure and indeed they may be unable to pay out when the time comes. Insurance companies will go under and people who have paid premiums in good faith may end up with nothing if the company is bankrupt when their house is swept up in a tsunami or a fire burns down everything they own.

With Jupiter in Taurus since June 2011, there has been a huge focus on the banks and financial institutions. They received vast amounts of bailout funds and yet a few months later they have the nerve to post huge profits! Jupiter is still in Taurus until June 11th of 2012, so I am anticipating more bailouts, more money-printing, more recklessness on the part of the banks and more greed and fraud.
Jupiter goes into Gemini on June 11th and the stock sectors that will benefit are anything in communications, new technology, computers, cellphones, writing, transportation. Expect to see huge growth in social networking sites with all the areas that Gemini rules expanding exponentially.
This placement of Jupiter enhances everything connected with communications. We will find exciting new ways of communicating and improving our thinking abilities. There will be a greater focus on the power of the mind and how we can use our minds to heal our bodies in many cases without medical intervention. We’ll see inventions that will increase the speed we can travel both physically and mentally.
There will be a plethora of new gadgets, time-saving devices, new mobile communications tools, more wireless applications, advances in robotics, nanotechnology and everything that helps to save time and energy. We’ll have more time-saving devices, more mobile phones, more applications for those phones, new ways of executing financial transactions and the pace of life will speed up.
Products using nanotechnology will become more widespread. For example, I have a friend in Germany who is thrilled with her nanotechnology cleaning materials. She sprays her toilet and the bathroom and kitchen surfaces just once and then for three months or more, it just stays clean. Dirt rolls off it. Imagine never having to clean another toilet!

We might see a switch to virtual payment systems. Instead of using credit cards or debit cards, you have a device attached to your smartphone that allows you to pay for something right away.

Facebook is rumoured to be going public some time between April and June 2012 but I think it might be closer to June when Jupiter is in Gemini. We might not need the keyboard soon as communications may be voice activated. Look at Siri, the voice-operated personal assistant app on the Apple IPhone. There are others coming out soon and this is set to grow.

Expect to see huge growth in digital information clouds. At some point we’ll be able to stream all our music, TV, movies and books through subscription services. We’ll start to connect in new ways and we’ll know much more about each other.

The influence of Gemini will be about faster communications, understanding more, accomplishing a great deal in a very short time. If you work or are interested in technology, this could be a wonderful field to be involved in during this transit from June 11th 2012 until June 26th 2013.

Education and learning will be hot topics, and expect to see a huge increase in reading, writing, texting, new mobile phones and appliances, new gadgets, how-to guides.
Because Gemini rules the hands, manual skills will become more prevalent. Handcrafts, drawing, carpentry, typing, music, massage, healing and an increase in people wanting to go back to the land and grow fruits and vegetables and become self-sufficient. Anything involving our hands and how we use our hands will be enhanced.
Gemini rules speech and we will see advances and breakthroughs with those who have difficulty speaking, those with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other learning challenges.
There will be a proliferation of creative games especially for the young. These will be used not only for amusement but also for education and learning.
We’ll see a huge increase in the number of new inventions and in applications for patents and copyrights.
This is a powerful time for people of like mind to come together to create huge changes on our planet. If enough people believe that we can be prosperous and we can come through our economic, social and political woes, we can create it. Jupiter in Gemini unleashes the power of the mind. Make sure you use it well and to your advantage.
