The reader should understand that, in my horoscopic outlook for the mundane (that which effects the whole world) or specifically for the USA, what I am interpreting is what is made possible, or perhaps, potential, by the various stellar influences. The great astrologer Charles E.O. Carter, was famous for having said, “The stars incline, they do not compel.” Good astrologers live by this. There are, however, certain stellar conditions by which what is ‘possible’ or even ‘potential’ is also made probable. But not all influences are so clear or powerful. So for the record, unless I specifically state that a particular event is ‘probable’, then the influence is to be considered ‘possible’ or ‘potential’.
INFLUENCES LASTING THROUGHOUT 2012
While America’s progressed and directed charts indicate a dire need for the reestablishment, nurturing and protection of domestic industry, both charts also indicate that this need is made subordinate to the personal material aims of members of Congress, and the financial interests of the world’s plutocrats whom they serve, through the maintaining of self-injurious trade agreements such as NAFTA and WTO, etc. These charts indicate that, in the end of the matter, the pursuit of personal ambition by members of the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of the US government, results in severe and irreversible harm to the potential contributions by America’s most inventive and industrious citizens.
America’s directed chart reveals that, throughout the year, the President is likely to be weak, argumentative, combative and very changeable, while, in a bid for reelection, trying to appease the electorate, and at the same time, attempting to fulfill promises made to the plutocrats responsible for putting him in office in the first place.
The directed chart also suggests that, it is through false foreign allies that the USA is led to commit dishonorable acts of violence (through use of military force) and that, through the influence of traitors and secret enemies, the American military is exploited, and US armed services personnel needlessly put into harm’s way.
OTHER LONG-TERM INFLUENCES
Transiting Pluto’s degree indicates that throughout the month of January, 2012 there is an emphasis on matters concerning acts of treason, espionage and sabotage. This influence suggests that there is a well-planned and deliberate attempt to steal vital and classified secret data from the US government and/or US government contractors. This position of Pluto in the USA’s chart suggests also that agents of espionage have either infiltrated US agencies and/or contractors in possession of this data, or that these foreign agents are acting with the assistance of well-placed foreign operatives, or through the assistance of US citizens engaged in acts of treason. Conversely, Mars’ position in the USA’s horoscope indicates that, provided the conspiracy does not go too deep, there is the opportunity for US federal law enforcement and security agencies to uncover and expose acts of espionage and treason, and apprehend the offenders. The influence concerning the act of espionage peaks on the 7th of January and the potential for the offenders to be exposed and/or apprehended peaks on the 14th.
The degree of transiting Uranus indicates the continued potential for various homeland disasters. This includes incidents related to weather extremes, earthquakes, natural disasters, accidents involving aircraft, and the potential for uranium-related incidents. This same influence also coincides with on-going saber rattling (the situation with Iran is prominent) as well as the organization and revolutionary actions of domestic radicals such as the “Occupy” movement. This influence is active throughout the month of January, 2012.
The Executive branch of the US government is likely to be at odds with the Legislative branch, as indicated by the position of transiting Saturn. This influence is in effect throughout the entire month of January, 2012 and is also correlative to a time when the President may propose radical (as in socialistic) policies, or work in conjunction with others of a radical or socialistic mentality.

ECONOMICS, FUNDAMENTALS AND THE STARS
In previous issues of Judicium Astrologica I have stated that Jupiter – the planet of monetary/economic expansion – when in direct motion in the sign of money – Taurus – will correlate to a time of significant monetary inflation, globally. (Jupiter went direct in Taurus on December 25, 2011.) While inflation has been already steadily growing, up until now, there has been some measure of restraint due to Saturn’s position in the sign of Libra, demanding a balancing of the books. Saturn (a.k.a. the Great Collector) will turn retrograde in Libra on February 8, essentially taking the stern authority’s attention away from such matters as monetary policy, and through June 25, allow that period of global monetary inflation to flood the world’s economic system. Then, at approximately 22º Libra, Saturn’s direction motion in the sign of the scales will exacerbate Jupiter’s being in a sign of its detriment (Gemini) which it passes into on June 12.
To summarize: After December 25, 2011 the economy should show some signs of improvement (though this ‘improvement’ will be nothing but a flash in the pan) and, the process of global monetary inflation can be considered as having begun, albeit slowly. From February 8 through June 11 the process of global monetary inflation should get well underway, and temporarily flood the Western world’s economies with liquidity. But Jupiter’s June 12 ingress to Gemini will coincide with an erosion of optimism and expansion, which will be made worse still when Saturn goes direct on June 26, again demanding a balancing of the books. (Saturn turns knee-busting debt collector on October 5, 2012 when it passes into the sign of Scorpio).
To summarize the summary: From January 1 through June 11, use the anticipated boost in equity market averages to unload equities that require the participation of a purchasing party somewhat more optimistic. Until recently, cash was king. Defend yourself against inflation (I believe these stellar influences, and the resultant economic conditions will ultimately prove to have rekindled the future rallies in both gold and silver). Thus, acquire both gold and silver on the dips. Remember that residential and commercial real estate will not stabilize until Uranus passes into Taurus (and that is years away) and mini booms and busts in real estate will occur regionally, and according to employment opportunities, or lack thereof. Understand that banks are not our friends (here in America they prove that to us frequently) so deposit your assets with them at your own risk. Lastly, keep in mind that tangible assets such as fine art, classic automobiles, numismatics, etc., are presently in a seller’s market.
