2011 Forecast

2011 Astrological Forecast – Michele Avanti CAP

When analyzing the stars for upcoming events, there are a few things, which are important for readers to know. First, I use the same methods that the astrologers of Persia used centuries ago. I look at the ingress charts for each of the cardinal signs. In plain English, that means, I run a chart for each time during the year that the sun enters zero degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, which is called a Cardinal Ingress Chart. The chart is set for the location that rules the area. In the case of the United States, that would be the White House in Washington, D.C.

Secondly, it is important to note what an astrologer does. Astrologers study the geometric patterns made by planets in constellations and how they relate to events that take place nationally or individually. Astrology is based on thousands of years of research, where records show that similar star patterns result in similar events.

That being said, it is important to note that all life forms have free will and that consciousness does evolve. Thus, as we look at the astrological pictures presented by the stars today, and attempt to understand how life on earth will respond to these influences, we need to remember that the old ways are not necessarily capable of giving us the complete story or the correct pictures.

In the last year, we have moved consciousness forward at an astounding rate. This is due to many factors, the most obvious one being our solar system aligning with the galactic center, the strongest, most powerful energy field in the over 26,000 year cycle of our sun.

This alignment calls for a step up in our creative power, and a greater connection to all life on this planet, this solar system and the galaxies beyond from which many of us have been seeded.

So with this said, I want each reader to open your mind and heart to the answers that come to you as I go through the many pictures that will be activated in 2011. Each reader will know what resonates and will find answers and pictures beyond what I have written here. It is important to remember we are all connected, not just to each other but to the very force of spirit we call ‘Creator.’

The overall view as I look at the four ingress charts for 2011 is that from December 21, 2011 through September 22, 2011, we as a nation are on the ride of destiny. It is a period when what comes together does so because we set the karmic pattern for this time. We will accomplish everything necessary to get us to the next step in our evolvement. To make this as clear as possible, I want each reader to think of times in their lives when they felt no matter how they tried to take control, fate seemed to step in and drive the bus. That is how it will go during this period.

Once we get to September 23, we feel freer to make choices and more balanced as a nation.

The Capricorn Ingress – December 21, 2010 – March 19, 2011

The first quarter is clearly focused on employment, health and military issues. The people are struggling with these issues and feeling imprisoned by them. The president is focused and organized in attempting to transform them, but the international contractual challenges revolving around outsourced jobs, and import, export issues are great and I do not see them breaking at this time. There is discussion, there is posturing, there are headlines but the outcome is they still stand.

Property values and the housing market are still at the bottom. Emotionally this is a downer for the nation though there is some behind the scenes work going on to empower the people through mortgages, banking system, taxes, I do not see that relief happening in this period.

As this period comes to a close, in March, something does open to give the empower the people with money or tax relief, but only after a long battle and when I look at the next chart the battle continues, so I am not sure the late arrival of this relief will do much more than give people hope.

We also begin this period under a Mercury Retrograde, which pulls in memories and past Christmas-times that challenge us to think spiritually of service and charity to the world at large. Though as a nation we are concerned about all the details of work, we have a nostalgic and optimistic holiday season.

But as Mercury moves forward into the second week of January, challenges escalate, the media suddenly reveals information about national employment, health, military, or mortgages, taxes, death toll, international or legal issues, or some secrets may be revealed that challenge the mindset of the nation. These revelations will challenge the people to question what is really happening. It may test their faith in government and, or God.

Around the 10th of January, the challenges should strike clearly in the headlines, and it may come through some attack or military action. During this time, the weather will also be very wet, icy and suddenly frozen. The stock market, or investment markets will have a run it seems. It appears to involve established, old stocks, those involved with underground, or underwater properties and international imports or exports. I expect oil and gas will both be active, as well as, companies internationally selling or producing surgical equipment. Also, entertainment stocks focused on espionage or beyond death experiences should see some action.

On January 19th, the full moon may trigger a massive flood. Hundreds or even thousands may drown since it involves Jupiter exactly conjunct the fixed star of drowning. But there is support from the people and the government, so perhaps we can avert the loss of life in some way. While this may occur in America, especially the Northeast, the midland, and the northwest, it will also be happening in many parts of the world. Additionally the threat of earthquakes in the Pacific my bring danger of tsunamis along the northwest coast. These issues will be in the news.

The Aries Ingress – March 20, 2010 – June 20, 2011

While in the last three months, the president had a clear organized focus and found himself immersed in the karmic struggle of old powerful international contracts, this period shows a drastic, sudden change in him.

It indicates past karma is publicly displayed, and the President is faced with a nation separating, people posturing in aggressive ways. He also appears suddenly brilliant, once more the man who electrified the country with his bid for the White House.

With the strong energies activating the President in this chart, I believe we will see him differently. No more, Mister Nice Guy, he is inventive, aggressive and direct. He will not be the Let’s do this together kind of guy we have seen in the past. Something is challenging him to lose his head, so to speak and be forthright.

Between the 3rd and 10th of April, some explosive event will take place. It may involve a gun or the military, a cabinet member or banking head, a contract or words said, explosive emotions and will take place on home soil. It will challenge the nation emotionally, and may make the rift in the nation even worse.

This event seems to directly affect the President. I took a look at his chart and it is disconcerting to see indications that may involve someone he loves, female, possibly a child. But it may also be something that he loves, so let us hope that it has nothing to do with a child, for this would be too much for any of us to bear.

During this period what may bring some national unity is the struggle with perceived foreign enemies.

There is emphasis on reorganization of government military contracts and international treaties, which causes stress.

People are spending more money and there are more investments in social networking on the web. Technology investments, entertainment and things that create beauty through technology are good during this period.

We have a more creative, inventive and social focus and are seen internationally for our nurturing nature.

The struggle to keep government and corporate control out of the Internet is aggressive during this time and Internet neutrality will not be lost in this quarter.

The early part of June may also bring some earthquake action.

I want to add some information about this chart that is not just for America but for the world.

This Ingress chart indicates something that has not been seen in recorded history.

When we look at an ingress chart, we view the sun as the ruler of a the nation. In this ingress chart the sun is conjunct Scheat, the fixed star of drowning. Fixed stars are said to move at a rate of approximately 1 degree every 72 years. Based on that rate and the fact that there are 360 degrees in the zodiac, the last time this star and the sun of the Aries ingress were conjunct would have been around 26,000 years ago. Does that ring a bell? That is the same approximation of time when last our solar system aligned with the galactic center. We are at a breakthrough in consciousness.

This Aries Ingress Chart indicates it is time for the rulers of nations to make a breakthrough, but some will lose their heads in the process and respond with fire, belligerence, and aggression. While others will respond with unexpected brilliance!

If we take this formula to identify the last time an ingress Sun conjoined Scheat, we would go to a Capricorn contact 90 degrees earlier, which would place it around 6,480 years ago. Still before recorded history, yet according to geological records this is the actual number bandied about as the time when the Mayans predicted the end of time forecast for 2012.

There can be no doubt this is a gateway to the end of time as we know it, and a doorway to a new kind of time.
The Cancer Ingress –June 21, 2011 – September 22, 2011

The President is being seen more now than ever. He is making news here and internationally.

This period looks worse for earthquakes. A cardinal cross consisting of Saturn, Mercury, Uranus and Pluto is on the angles. This is a volatile combination with a variety of outcomes, the most obvious being earthquakes. A very clear picture states: a challenge of connectivity over water due to sudden explosive fire from deep in the earth.

Both San Francisco and Los Angeles have this signature, so I suggest some preparedness and caution if you travel over bridges in these areas during the early part of this ingress.

Another picture that fits this cross is an explosive transformation in the housing market; people are challenged to separate from their homes and mortgages. This is certainly happening throughout California and in many parts of the country even as we speak, but perhaps the final cut off for many will be during this ingress next year.

It looks like there may be employment opportunities through public contracts, which come out of this challenge. People are experiencing stress re-assessing property, and their business and their dreams.

Overall the nation is challenged emotionally, investments are down, and there may be some severe market drops during this period, every bit as explosive as any earthquake.

National income is challenged and people are saving money, not spending. Air travel is also challenged, though there may be some government support to help the airlines.

The Libra Ingress – September 23, 2011 – December 20, 2011

As the year closes, the president is struggling with cabinet members, the tax changes, bankers, estate tax issues, and behind it all are the issues, which began the year, those of employment, military, and health.

But during this time, there are definitely more opportunities for jobs, people are partying more and they are putting their energy into their dreams. They are re-examining the employment and health care issues, and though there is still stress, it appears they realize there has been some healing.

The nation is working, people are saving money and stressing over luxury spending, higher education and travel.

The housing market is at a transformational stress point, and this appears to cause builders to start building smaller, more moderate, less luxury homes.

Airlines are stressed, except for people traveling within the country to visit family.

Investments seem strongest in blue chip stocks or government bonds. The very end of September and the first few days of October could bring some issues with the stock market, so this is a time to be more cautious there.

Though there is still stress in the nation, and the President continues to struggle for change in the military, employment and health care; the year seems to end with more people working and saving, and overall we appear to be in a wiser, more stable state than when 2011 began.
