Global Trends & Cycles provides analysis of long-term prospects for nations and companies to help you make informed decisions on expansion and risk.
Through analysis of long-term cycles of human civilization, the specific character, location and timing of upcoming changes can be determined in advance and used to advantage to avoid high-risk situations and capitalize on growth opportunities of manageable risk.
The Global Trends & Cycles website forecasts and services are produced by Marie Schoeppel.
On April 3, 2019, Hong Kong’s legislature proposed changes to existing law that would allow extradition of suspects for specified crimes to mainland China. What began as protests against this law has ballooned into protracted protests over Hong Kong’s independence from mainland China’s legal system. Protests have turned disruptive and even violent in some cases, pushing the limits of what the mainland will allow. On November 24, 2019, a Mars-Uranus opposition impacts the charts of Hong Kong and China, and the North Node impacts the chart of the Chinese Communist Party. These indicate an overwhelmingly explosive situation, with a loss of patience and restraint on both sides.
It’s not just Donald Trump who has a major hit to his chart by the total solar eclipse in 2017: in North Korea’s chart*, Saturn at 28*46’ Leo is conjoined by the position of the August 21 eclipse at 28*52’ Leo. Who will blow their top first?
Potential for conflict between Iran and Turkey increases during the summer of 2016. Turkey expands its army and makes increasingly aggressive moves. Iran sees Turkey as encroaching on its territory of influence. Turkey could risk a military confrontation in order to claim dominance over parts of Syrian territory.
US interest rates and China’s economy will interact with one another in 2019-2020 as China’s debt levels become unsustainable. The Federal Reserve’s power to influence global interest rates will be the determining factor for the global economy. The Fed will have to move quickly to contain the fallout of the crisis from harming other indebted emerging economies, with an eye to ensuring the continued supremacy of the US dollar. Interest rates and currency exchange rates may fluctuate significantly in a several brief time periods, as forecast in this analysis.
The Asian currency crisis of 1997 was foretold by two important astrological configurations in the first quarter of 1997: a stellium of Jupiter, Uranus, Ceres, and Mercury at 5* Aquarius on February 13; and a total solar eclipse at 18*31’ Pisces on March 9. These two configurations were the planetary setup that simply needed to be triggered to create a domino effect.
