Millennium optimism shifts into a decade of major difficulties and challenges
2010 is at the start of this major shifting period: there is no more stability for a big whileThe last peak of global optimism (all outer planets in waxing, growing, cycles was in 2000). In 2001, Saturn-Pluto opposition turned the wheel into less global optimism, and this occurred further by 2005 and 2006, when Saturn-Neptune formed another opposition. In 2008, another opposition between Saturn-Uranus marked yet another shift into further negativism. In 2010 the cardinal climax marks another shift (Jupiter-Saturn opposition). All these cycles have turned into waning mode, meaning a destructive influence for the next following years. After growth, we need pruning the excesses, the unbalances and the mistakes.
Imagine that the period surrounding the early 2010s is like the period surrounding the early 1930s, the realization that there is a great turning point for the world, the social and economic unrest become more complicated, as well as political tensions mount between countries. This is because there is a major cardinal alignment, similar in both cases, and with identical waning cycles. The shift from several waxing cycles to waning cycles between 2008 and 2011 results in much more global worries, pessimism and deconstruction. To start of, that is a very intense shift. After the cardinal climax effect of 2010, the years 2011 and 2012 will likely be a period of much deeper change, something similar to the shift observed from 2008 to 2009. Probably, the economic crises and the climate unstability will become more extreme. Likely, the economic recovery measures will not work (because they are fundamentally flawed)
By 2025, a recovery starts, a new period of global optimism begins, with social revolution, economic expansion and technological advance
By 2020, there is a major development of that situation (like in early 1942, US entry in the war), and global optimism only comes by 2025 (like 1945), when major waxing cycles start again, and point to the end of this massive global change. It's also interesting because mid 2024 and 2025 have Jupiter, Uranus and Mars in Gemini, and Pluto is in Aquarius, all of which are very strong indicators of historical social revolutions (think about American or French revolutions). I also think about alien and technological disclosure as a major key event by then. Revolutions will be centered around 2025, give or take it 3 years. There will be likely economic booms, around the years 2020, 2025 and 2032.
