Trump

President Trump puts America first by taxing companies hiring foreign workers, restricting immigration, giving tax breaks to working-class families and veterans, ending the estate tax, continuing to block Muslim refugees, doesn’t build a wall exactly – “the wall” will be not a wall but an area monitored by security cameras and drones flying around. Trump makes a mega deal with the UK after its Brexit from the EU, but he loses out on the trade war with China (China draws closer to Russia).

Congress continues to try to impeach Trump but fails, some psychics see an upswing of support for President Trump after this, some see him leaving the White House in 2018, due to death? he is overweight and eats a cheeseburger diet plus he drinks an astounding 12 Diet Cokes a day! due to assassination? or does he just quit?

Exploits oil and gas for profit, opens national parks to drilling and grazing of livestock

Succeeds in ending our huge trade deficit

Appoints 2 conservative judges to the Supreme Court

US military

A warship explodes and sinks – terrorist bombing?

Many more cyber attacks including some that throw off our satellites

Our army is spread thin around the world which makes us vulnerable. Russia and China like this!

We secretly help depose Kim Jung-Un from power.

Kim Jong Un

The North Korean leader is overthrown with help behind the scenes by out military (covert ops), some psychics say Kim gets executed, some say he flees to China.

Natural disasters

Another year of extreme weather! The Earth is getting damaged by pollution and acting erratically. Temperatures swing back-and-forth between winter and summer, fires continue to ravage California, powerful earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are actually damaging the Earth’s crust = very dangerous, coastlines flood again (Miami, Houston, New Orleans, parts of NYC), becomes a recurring problem, people will need to move inland.

A huge iceberg in Antarctica breaks apart and melts, causing water levels worldwide to rise

More cities have contaminated water like Flint, Michigan, people will realize parts of the world are becoming uninhabitable, a bad hurricane season, monster tornadoes.

Mother Earth is damaged and angry. She is a powerful force of nature and will release very destructive energies! This is foretold in the ancient folklore of the Hindu goddess Kali and the Hawaiian goddess Pele.

Russia and China

The two countries are quickly becoming good friends, will work together militarily and politically on ousting/dealing with the end of Kim Jong Un’s reign in North Korea, when the Russian economy tanks China lends them lots of money

Trump wants to do a deal with Russia, but our lawmakers freak out and block it

Celebrity gossip

Barack Obama and Michelle are in a political marriage of convenience and divorce, gay comedian Ellen DeGeneres and Portia divorce, music superstar Justin Timberlake gets divorced from Jessica

George Bush, Barbara Walters, John McCain, Prince Philip die

surprise marriages for Tom Cruise and Leo Di Caprio

a pregnancy soon after the wedding of the year = Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle

Celebrity religion Scientology collapses

Technological advances

Elon Musk’s hyper loop works

New lupus and cancer treatments

Food additives are found to cause cancer

Economy

Bad, but UK and US bounce back, some big-name brands go bankrupt

Good investments are anything high-tech like robotics and drones, environmental technology like solar energy, the intelligence sector, also marijuana and gaming, luxury goods and educational products

America could be investing in our infrastructure, creating construction jobs, but doesn’t and more bridges fail

India’s economy grows and grows and is eventually stronger than China’s, which gets flak for its poor environmental record and cheap knock-off products

UK

More flooding

Rebounds strongly after Brexit, makes new trade deals with the US and with its former colonies India and Australia, smartly invests in new technology like robotics and wind turbines

Will and Kate will have a fourth baby (currently on their third), Prince Philip dies, Prince Harry marries American Meghan Markle and she quickly gets pregnant

The truth comes out

2018 is the number eight and in Chinese astrology it’s a nine year, so in this year we feel like we are nearing the end, (the numbers end at 10), people won’t be hoodwinked anymore, aren’t naive but seasoned, demand the truth: political scandals, Catholic Church scandal, Hollywood casting couch scandals, Scientology collapses in scandal, military admits they know about alien spaceships, many more people will see UFOs and weird red lights in the sky, Bitcoin scandal as its popular for funding terrorists and mobsters ($5 million illegal gains just found in Romania)

EU/European Union

The EU collapses, people riot, set fires, money becomes devalued and people in poorer countries like Greece are in real trouble

Italy and Denmark wisely exit the EU beforehand

Assassination attempt on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Germany’s economy lags behind the UK’s as it deals with flood of immigrants

Terrorism

Isis caliphate in Raqqa, Syria, obliterated, almost all of Syria reduced to rubble, Iraq also destroyed, ISIS grows in the Philippines and Malaysia, will continue to inspire smaller “lone wolf” attacks, concerts at risk, ISIS tries attacks over big cities like New York and London using drones to disperse chemical weapons, attempts attacks on trains, subways, planes

More school shootings and mass shootings by bullied and disgruntled Americans

Deadly strain of the flu is linked to bioterrorism, unleashed by North Korean agents?

Spirituality

So many people are depressed, stressed out, financially strapped, in the future people come together for safety and will live more communally, will live simply, sharing food and housing, all will be in the same boat economically, income disparity ends

Halfway thru 2017: Predictions Correct?

The Summer Solstice (June 21st) got me thinking about the rest of the year. 2017 is half over! How are your goals coming along? I am disappointed that I didn’t make more inroads into being a metaphysical writer/personality, basically the next Doreen Virtue! This is VERY FUNNY because during this time Doreen came out as a born-again Christian! So, she is not a New Age goddess anymore 😦 She is even selling her goddess dresses on eBay! This has taken the wind out of my sales as far as promoting the New Age. Is the whole movement going up in smoke? In a freakish way, I sorta foresaw Doreen’s switch to being all-Jesus, all-the-time. In January, I wrote a blog post titled, “Jesus and Mary’s Popularity Boom.” I wrote about how I was seeing people online turn away from being New Age to embrace born-again Christianity. I AM SO TUNED IN. LOLz.

So, what did I predict back in January in my blog post about 2017, the Year of the Fire Rooster?

Predictions that happened! 

  1. I wrote about the Rooster symbolizing the top-tier CEO who flaunts his success. So we shouldn’t have all been surprised that Trump won the election!
  2. Ruffled feathers, but no real war. Kim Jung-Un’s missile test provocations in North Korea. Putin’s bombing runs in Syria clashing with US military planes.
  3. The Phoenix. A symbol of a more spiritual community rising from the ashes of society. YES! Society is changing rapidly: healthcare for all, gay rights, legalizing marijuana, global warming/stopping pollution, rights of animals not to be exploited in circuses/trophy hunting, women’s rights marches. Of course, these issues are all part of a tug-of-war! It’s 2 steps forward and 1 step back.
  4. Fires and explosions. The super disturbing fire at London’s Grenfell Tower just happened. We could include Kim Jong-Un’s missile tests as explosions/explosive firepower? Lots of wildfires, like last year. Earlier this week, I could barely breathe because of smoke here from a fire in UTAH. And I live in COLORADO!
  5. More alternative medicine => medicinal marijuana (and recreational) now legal in more states.
  6. Dramatic fashions like winged eyeliner and glitter.
  7. Veganism continues to be a rising trend.

Sorta happened.

  1. Lots of weddings and babies? My cousin did get married in Denver. It sounds like Prince Harry will get engaged later this year. Can’t think of any big celebrity weddings. Beyonce’s twins are getting a lot of press.
  2. Success through detailed planning and careful spending? Did that happen for you? I’m feeling unsuccessful at the moment 😦

Didn’t happen. YET.

  1. Explosions like a dirty bomb or natural gas explosions.
  2. Terrorist attack or big accident involving trains/subways and maybe bridges.
  3. Economic downturn in US and UK.

Year of the Fire Rooster 2017

Saturday, January 27th, is the Chinese New Year! We are now in the Year of the Fire Rooster.

Who is the Rooster?

The Rooster is personified by successful businessmen and women. Most are extroverts who like to talk! They love attention and want to be in the middle of all the action. Known to be fashionable and a loud dresser, Roosters love hosting and attending glittering cocktail parties full of important, moneyed people. The Rooster lives for business success. Like the barnyard Rooster, these people expect to be on top of the heap, ruling their social group. They are friends with CEOs and investors and tech millionaires. Flashy, yet serious about their career, Roosters are very dedicated to their work. He/she works hard to climb the corporate ladder to success.

The Rooster likes to strut its stuff and boast about career achievements, just as a barnyard Rooster fluffs up its feathers to look important! Roosters set personal goals to get promoted at work each year. They strive to be highly visible in the workplace. Rooster women will “dress to impress” with high heels, business suits, bright silk scarves, bling-y jewelry and fashionable hair cuts. Rooster men will wear high-end business suits with expensive ties (skinny ties are “in” now and Rooster men follow trends, so maybe a skinny tie). Men will wear the latest cuts and fabrics to attract attention. They are not afraid of loud patterns or shiny fabrics. Think of a Rooster’s colorful tail feathers! And like the barnyard Rooster’s crown (its red comb), workplace Roosters aspire to be treated like royalty or a VIP.

Good year for weddings and babies

Like the barnyard Rooster who wants to be the leader of the biggest (or the hugest in Trump speak) flock possible, a Rooster year is filled with weddings and new babies. It’s a good year for new business partnerships, too, like joining forces with another business in your market. This year, Oprah is partnering with Weight Watchers to promote weight loss and with Kraft-Heinz to create a new line of healthy grocery store food.

Ruffled feathers

With Trump now in office, people are worried he will get his “feathers ruffled” and start a nuclear war! Yes (the ruffled feathers part, not the nuclear war part) may well happen in 2017. Many world leaders will get into scuffles (like on Twitter) over little tiffs. It’s a year where everyone will feel the heat from social media criticism. Leaders especially at risk: Trump, Putin, Kim Jong Un. Already, NATO and the US are doing war exercises right on Russia’s border with Eastern Europe. And the airspace over Syria is already a pissing match among all the different countries bombing there. And North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is lighting off more and more missiles. The good news: the skirmishes aren’t likely to erupt into a full-fledged war. There will be more talk than action. Like a Rooster fighting for dominance in the barnyard, there will be lots of loud squawking but then the birds/world leaders will calm down and take a breath.

Don’t feel like a Rooster?

If you’re a very spiritual, metaphysical, bohemian or a Bernie Sanders-type socialist who isn’t interested in big money or big business, you may be a Phoenix! The Phoenix is also a bold and powerful bird, but is more at home in the spiritual world than the business world. The Phoenix is the famous wounded bird that rises from the ashes. The story correlates to religious stories about death and redemption/rebirth. The deeper meaning here is about dying to what the world or society is telling you to be. And being reborn as someone who answers to a higher calling, listens only to their own voice. This can mean being part of the vegan community (resisting factory farms, prepackaged food with additives) or the Women’s March (resisting sexist comments in the workplace) or the Dakota Access Pipeline Protest (resisting big government and big oil) or the Black Lives Matter movement (resisting police abuse) or the LBGTQ community (resisting discrimination based on sexual preference or identity). As I’m writing this, I’m realizing how many protest groups are now active! My personal favorite is the Anonymous hacker group (resisting government propaganda).

How to be successful in this Fire Rooster year

The Fire energy this year can get too hot! Don’t run off on wild goose chases. What seems like a “crazy dream” might really be a crazy dream! To be successful in 2017, keep yourself grounded. Think of a rooster who looks undignified and all over the place when trying to fly, but walks around on the ground in a confident strut.

Make realistic, achievable goals this year. Carefully plan out how to move from point A to point B. You will get more accomplished this way. Be practical, not dreamy. If you are not a business-minded person, just imagine yourself as Martha Stewart or Donald Trump and ask yourself what THEY would do. They would likely create a detailed business plan, with goals listed on a calendar. Break down your goals for 2017 into monthly goals.

Likewise, be conservative with your money this year. Don’t take big gambles. Plan a realistic budget. Wait for your career to advance (for most people, this will be in Autumn). Instead of risking your money in hopes of a big windfall, work diligently towards a promotion or a higher profile job that pays more money.

Advice for 2017

  • Don’t stick your neck out. Where did this phrase come from? From chickens who get their heads chopped off so that the farmer can sell chicken breasts. This Fire year brings us lots of fiery arguments and heated fights. It’s wise to avoid these battles. This means staying away from violent protests.
  • To reach your life goals this year, first see the big picture. Imagine in your head what you want to accomplish. It could be your dream wedding, a beach vacation, moving to a more progressive city or a million-dollar book deal. Plan out small, easily-acheivable steps to get yourself there.
  • Score brownie points with your boss this year by being on time! In this Rooster year, your dedication to the job will not go unnoticed. After all, a Rooster’s job is to be ready at exactly the crack of dawn to wake everyone up.

Predictions for 2017

  • Economies falter, even in powerhouses like the US and Great Britain.
  • This Fire year brings more natural disasters like huge wildfires, monster tornadoes, historic flooding and rare volcanic eruptions. Expect more crazy weather, too. Other disasters like epidemics (remember the Ebola scare?) could flareup.
  • More terrorist attacks are predicted in Fire years, especially with a bomb or another explosive device. A dirty bomb has been predicted for some time. This would be a homemade bomb or IED with stolen nuclear materials added to it. Its detonation could cause nuclear radioactive fallout. Would ISIS dare to do this in a big American or European city? It could create a long-standing “no go zone” in a major bustling city, like New York or Paris.
  • Other explosions are possible, like the natural gas explosions we’ve seen in the (old and neglected) sewers of New York City and in homes.
  • It’s predicted that trains could be targeted by ISIS, etc. for terrorist attacks. This could be a derailment, a mysterious high-speed crash, a bomb or a gunman on board.
  • Bridges may fail and fall down due to disrepair. Or by tampering from a terrorist organization. Or a major bridge could become a flashpoint during a protest, with people blocking traffic. Or there could be another “Bridgegate” with a politician or the National Guard blocking an important bridge to make a point.
  • 2017 is a hot year for fashion! Roosters like to look their best and love bold, “look at me” fashions. What’s in: clunky black eyeglasses, extreme winged eyeliner, bright sparkles and glitter, faux fur in crazy colors like hot pink, stiletto boots and heels, “free the nipple” open or meshed tops with nothing worn underneath, colorful feathers and Pom poms, dramatic designer gowns with high slits, bright patterns like polka dots, gemstone colors like ruby red and emerald green, metallics and peacock colors like dark teal, royal blue and hot turquoise. Make a splash!
  • Health and beauty trends in 2017: Buzzwords like “organic” and “all-natural” continue to move products. Health foods make a big dent in the marketplace. All the “bad for you” food and drinks like salty fast food burgers and fries and sugary sodas continue to decline in popularity. “Good for you” foods like smoothies and kale chips continue to climb in popularity. Restaurants will add more vegan and vegetarian and gluten-free items to their menus (yay!). GMO companies like Monsanto will face increased pressure and protests.
  • Alternative medicine like meditation, yoga, medical marijuana, acupuncture and juice cleanses will become more accepted by the mainstream.
  • Social pressure to be healthy will eventually lower rates of smoking, binge drinking, obesity and illicit drug use.

Doreen Virtue’s 2017 Predictions

I always look forward to Doreen Virtue’s yearly prediction video! She doesn’t give specifics (Sylvia Browne used to do celebrity predictions, which were fun); she just pulls cards and talks about the year, one month at a time. This time, she also chose a card for the whole year. The card for 2017: Truth. She said this means there will be a lot of push and pull between people divided by politics, environmental flare-ups, black/white racism (like the black victims of (mostly white) police abuse). She also said it’s a big year for Indigos, the people who are here on Earth to speak out! I myself feel more outspoken in my writing (I never thought of myself as an Indigo because I’m very quiet, but maybe I am). I’m switching my focus from metaphysical studies to politics! I think I will find plenty of things to write about  😉

Doreen’s big predictions: a) MARTIAL LAW and b) WAR.

Pretty crazy, right? I’m not sure how martial law in AMERICA would come about. Maybe Trump is even crazier than he seems on Twitter? I actually have some high hopes for him in terms of business contracts and the economy. It’s possible he takes a heavy hand in response to some rioting (this is what Doreen predicts) and calls out the National Guard. Doreen specifically mentioned TANKS. Time to re-read 1984.

She didn’t say anything specific about the war. World War III in Europe? That would be my prediction. NATO is ALREADY amassing troops on the border near Russia (in Estonia and Poland). If you don’t believe me, Google it.

Because of this war, spiritual people (like us) will become peace activists. It helps to pray for peace, Doreen says, and to pray for the hearts and minds of the specific world leaders involved. Remember the prayer circles for President Bush during the Iraq War?

She also mentions: more whistleblowers come forward, more crazy weather, drama at President Trump’s inauguration (January 20th).

Sounds like a wild 2017! I say bring it.

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey

Year of the Monkey

2016 is the Year of the Monkey in the Chinese calendar (doesn’t officially start until February 8). It’s a fire year, which makes the monkey even more active.

Who is the Monkey?

Monkeys are trouble-makers who like fun and excitement. Why do we call hyperactive young children “little monkeys?” The positive traits of the monkey are: energetic, fun, smart, clever, funny, risk-takers, great problem-solvers, creative, free-thinkers, go-getters who find success alone. The negative traits of the monkey are: tricksters, underhanded, opportunistic, not always truthful, rebellious, takes crazy risks, gets stressed out.

Year of the Fire Monkey 2016

Business in the Fire Monkey Year

Businesses that follow a new, modern business model (streamlined, environmentally conscious, with equality among workers, bosses who listen to feedback, women CEOs and business owners, small startups, entrepreneurs working at home) will see great success, while old brick-and-mortar businesses with traditional employee – boss relationships will stumble. Entrepreneurs, creative types, inventors and researchers who come up with something new will be very successful this year. Taking a big gamble will pay off in the Year of the Monkey. For investors, big risks will equal big rewards. The Fire Monkey is hot!

Politics in the Fire Monkey Year

The old political parties will not resonate with voters in 2016. Whoever is new and exciting will prove popular. This is interesting since 2016 is a presidential election year in the U.S. Donald Trump seems to be favored by these predictions, but Hillary Clinton or another woman as President would also be a shake-up! Free-thinkers like Rand Paul and Bernie Sanders will also gain followers. It’s “out with the old, and in with the new” this year. Radical fringe groups might attract bigger followings (certain Muslim clerics, neo-Nazis). Governments will be safe from full-scale revolutions like the Arab Spring, though, since big groups don’t succeed this year. Instead, individuals like political activists, critical journalists and whistleblowers are highlighted.

Terrorism in the Fire Monkey Year

I’m guessing it will be an active year for terrorism (the Chinese New Year forecasts I checked didn’t touch on this). Old-fashioned armies with columns of tanks will see losses while rebel fighters will see gains. Similarly, computer hackers may find success (one individual against a big network of computers). In 2016, “individuals = success” and “big groups = losses.” I’m guessing terrorist attacks using explosive devices are more likely in a fire year. Because this year favors individuals acting alone, threats from lone gunmen and small sleeper cells will continue. My prediction is ISIS will continue to rise (the individual rebel fighter against the big army; the new rising power against the old superpowers).

Personal Life in the Fire Monkey Year

2016 is a high-stress year! Imagine a hot firestorm, the sky a blazing red, with crazy monkeys swinging from the trees. Some people will burn out. The best way to reduce stress in a fire year is to be active. Think Zumba exercise classes and sports clubs over meditation and massage. In your love life, take a gamble! Taking action will lead to good results this year. Don’t be idle. Learn new skills. Classes that help your creativity (writing, philosophy, drawing) are a good idea as are classes that keep you up-to-date in your field of business. Keep up with new trends. Remember, anything “new and different” will prove very popular!

Conclusion

In 2016, hot, new ideas will be much more successful than the old ways of doing things. Think outside the box! Awaken your creative and entrepreneurial spirit to be a big success this year. (This year sounds perfect for me!) Be up for anything new! Action, adventure, creativity and innovation are the buzzwords for 2016.

Baba Vanga Prophecies

Have you heard of Baba Vanga? The Daily Mail Online (my favorite newspaper, from the UK) wrote a story on her a couple days ago. She was a famous oracle in Bulgaria, near Russia. She did prophecies, like Nostradamus. Her wording was strange and poetic. For instance, after 9/11 her prophecy of “metal birds” creating “horror” in America was declared to be about the Twin Towers. She was illiterate and so never wrote down her predictions, but her followers kept track.

She correctly predicted a “Muslim war” in 2016 = ISIS in Syria and Iraq and Libya. She foresaw the Muslim fighters invading Europe. Uh-oh. Scarily, Baba Vanga said Europe would no longer exist by the end of 2016! Some people think she meant the EU will break apart…. But she also predicted that Europe would become an empty wasteland, so maybe she was talking about a chemical or nuclear attack? Some analysts think ISIS could get chemical weapons, maybe stealing them from Iraq or Syria, or figure out how to make a dirty bomb. Baba said the “Muslim war” would end in 2043, about 30 years from now. More bad news = she predicted the Muslim soldiers would capture Rome! Instead of housing the Vatican and the head of the Catholic church, it becomes the capital city of their caliphate!
