|Today, more than 400 American military bases encircle |
China with missiles, bombers, warships and nukes (HERE)
In 2009, President Obama stood before an adoring crowd in the centre of Prague, in the heart of Europe. He pledged himself to make "the world free from nuclear weapons". People cheered and some cried. A torrent of platitudes flowed from the media. Obama was subsequently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
It was all fake. He was lying. The Obama

A study by the RAND Corporation – which, since Vietnam, has planned America’s wars – is entitled War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable. Commissioned by the US Army, the authors evoke the Cold War when RAND made notorious the catch cry of its chief strategist, Herman Kahn – ‘thinking the unthinkable’. Kahn’s book, On Thermonuclear War, elaborated a plan for a ‘winnable’

In 2015, in high secrecy, the US staged its biggest single military exercise since the Cold War. This was Talisman Sabre; an armada of ships and long-range bombers rehearsed an ‘Air-Sea Battle Concept for China’ – ASB – blocking sea lanes in the Straits of Malacca and cutting off China’s access to oil, gas and other raw materials from the Middle East and Africa.
It is such a provocation, and the fear of a US Navy blockade, that has seen China feverishly building strategic airstrips on disputed reefs and islets in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. Last July, the UN Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled against China’s claim of sovereignty over these islands. Although the action was brought by the Philippines, it was presented by leading American and British lawyers and can be traced to then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The world's attention and fortunes are shifting east, and America's dominance is ending [HERE]. Once subjugated, scorned and impoverished, China is rising inexorably as the world's banker, manufacturer and builder.
Will all this be allowed to happen peacefully? "We need to make America strong again," says President-elect Trump. "We need to make America great again... and we need victories."

In line with the 4 Lunar Month Cycle, the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) turned up yesterday. The geocentric Bradley Index will sport a high on Dec 09 (Fri). Dec 10 (Sat) is a SoLunar Turn-Day and Dec 14 (Wed) a Cosmic Cluster Day.
On Wednesday, Dec. 7th the CBOE Equity Put / Call Ratio closed at 0.46, signalling extreme greed. In fact this is the lowest Put/Call Ratio value since June 10th, 2015. On June 11th the SPX turned down.

Compared with 2007 (pre-recession) tax to GDP ratios, the biggest fall has been in Ireland, from 30.4% in 2007 to 23.6% of GDP in 2015. The second largest fall occurred in Norway, from 42.1% of GDP in 2007 to 38.1% in 2015. The tax burden in Turkey increased from 24.1% to 30.0% between 2007 and 2015. Greece and Mexico showed increases of 4% over the same period.

|Empire Life Cycle ≈ 250 Years ≈ 10 Generations|
In 1977, Sir John Glubb wrote an essay titled “The Fate of Empires”: […] during 3 millenaries the average superpowers duration period has been consistently of about 250 years […] the full 250-year cycle corresponds to about ten 25-year generations. This 250-year duration presents an unexpected consistency, especially if we consider all the major changes during the 3,000 years in transportation speed and weapons sophistication, which has expanded territories conquests from local to global. Regardless of the historical period, the life cycle was always of about 250 years.
Something bigger than their leaders was inclining empires to rise and also to fall. While we could seek a spiritual explanation of divine influence, we can also look at the sky from an astrologer perspective and find out that there are perfect correlations between the 250-year empires live cycles and Pluto’s 248 year orbital cycle. When a country is born, Pluto occupies a certain position in the sky, which eventually will return to the same position in about 248 years. That period corresponds to the entire superpower life cycle.
In his essay, Sir John Glubb also revealed that all empires cycles in history have followed a same 8-phase pattern process, which is represented below […] here are the empires 8 common phases and their corresponding heroes. While not necessarily of equal duration, each phase would last an average of about 41 years.
|During the past 3,000 years the average life expectancy of|
superpowers has been 250 years. All Empire Cycles followed
the same 8-phase pattern, and this pattern along with the
Pluto Cycles indicates that 2015-2022 will be the last 7 years
of the USA as the world superpower (HERE)
At left is a rudimentary historical outline associating USA superpower life cycle with Pluto orbital cycle. Human death is unavoidable regardless of wisdom and knowledge about what happened to previous dead people, and so are empires that rise and live until their inexorable collapse. Superpowers' life and death patterns will repeat itself whether their leaders study past history cycles or not.

"The Sun's position by itself in relation to the stock market can show you trends that are more or less active for each year, as the sun degrees are generally fixed. They fall on about the same date every year. So this is why some periods of the year would be more of a pattern."

|Two circular diagrams showing the division of the day and of the |
week, from a Carolingian manuscript (Clm 14456 fol. 71r) of St.
Emmeram Abbey. The day is divided into 24 hours, and each hour
into 4 puncta, 10 minuta and 40 momenta. Similarly, the week is
divided into seven days, and each day into 96 puncta, 240 minuta
and 960 momenta.
The earliest reference we have to the moment is from the 8th century writings of the Venerable Bede. Bede describes the system as 1 hour = 4 points = 10 minutes = 15 parts = 40 moments. Bede was referenced four centuries later by Bartholomeus Anglicus in his early encyclopedia De Proprietatibus Rerum (On the Properties of Things). Centuries after Bede's description, the moment was further divided into 60 ostents, although no such divisions could ever have been used in observation with equipment in use at the time.

The basic assumption here is that heliocentric and geocentric angles between planets are related to financial market movements. A signal is triggered when the composite line of all aspects breaks above or below the Average Cosmic Noise Channel.
Upcoming Cosmic Cluster Days (CCDs) are: Nov 25 (Fri), Nov 26 (Sat), Nov 27 (Sun), Dec 14 (Wed), Dec 23 (Fri), Dec 29 (Thu), Jan 09 (Mon), Jan 11 (Wed), Jan 12 (Thu), Jan 25 (Wed), Feb 08 (Wed). Previous CCDs are HERE
This chart depicts the solunar bias for short-term movements of stock indices two months ahead. The markets are certainly influenced also by other planetary forces - especially longer-term - but a 3-5 day short-term rhythm and pattern is governed by the solunar forces (= 4 highs and 4 lows per lunar month). The solunar forces are a composite of Sun-Moon angles, orbital eccentricities, declinations and some long-term cycles. A Low in the SoLunar Map frequently is a High in the stock market and vice versa. Inversions occur, and if so, they should occur only once every 4 lunar months around a New Moon (max +/- 7 days). The solunar rhythm is frequently disturbed by (1.) the FED, and (2.) by sudden solar activity, altering the geomagnetic field, and hence the mass mood. This can result in the skip and/or inversion of pivots in the SoLunar Map. An increasing number of sunspots and flares have usually a negative influence on the stock market some 48 hours later, and vice versa (Ap values > 10 are usually short-term negative). A rising blue line in the SoLunar Map means the bias for the market is side-ways-to-up, and vice versa. Highs and lows in the SoLunar Map also may coincide with the start and termination of complex, side-ways correction patterns like zig-zags, triangles or flags.
Upcoming SoLunar turn-days are: Nov 25 (Fri), Nov 29 (Tue), Dec 03 (Sat), Dec 06 (Tue), Dec 10 (Sat), Dec 14 (Wed), Dec 18 (Sun), Dec 21 (Wed), Dec 25 (Sun), Dec 29 (Thu), Jan 01 (Sun), Jan 05 (Thu), Jan 08 (Sun), Jan 12 (Thu), Jan 16 (Mon), Jan 20 (Fri), Jan 23 (Mon), Jan 27 (Fri), Jan 31 (Tue), Feb 04 (Sat).
