Well that’s what astrologer-cum-stockpicker Arch Crawford claims anyway, reported by Peter Brimelow at MarketWatch:
Crawford predicts “ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE”–beginning, as a matter of fact, on Monday July 26, 2010.
…the opening of Crawford’s July issue [of his newsletter, Crawford Perspectives] is definitely the sort of thing that upsets people: “NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE JULY! We mean, of course, the planetary pictures in the sky which are developing towards the tightest harmonic alignments in the most potent areas of the zodiacal circle ever recorded in Earth’s written history. These portend increasing and maximizing intensity and rapidity of ‘change’ on every level of existence: mineral, vegetable, animal, human and spirit. Will Capitalism survive? Will Democracy survive? Will our markets survive? Will governments survive? Will humanity survive? Will Earth survive?
“We don’t know, but we’ll be SHORT for it!”
Crawford–along with other astrologers, who however are merely worried about nuclear war, the end of the world etc.–is impressed with an imminent unusual alignment that apparently involves five key planets.
He writes: “Astrologers call it the ‘Cardinal Climax.’ It is considered to be the most powerful and important planetary alignment of the modern era. Perhaps it heralds the beginning of the real ‘Aquarian Age’ or the end of the ‘Mayan Calendar.’ (After all, what’s a few months in a 25,600-year cycle?) These energies actually maximize from July 30 through August 3. There have been ‘shadows’ preceding and will be echoes afterwards for quite some time.”
Crawford adds: “This huge alignment will be followed by a Full Moon on the Fall Equinox and a Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice. We expect the depth and scope of dislocations during this period to exceed anything we have ever witnessed, both in otherwise civilized interaction among nations, and likely our fill in natural disasters.”
“We continue to recommend extreme caution and proper emergency measures such as extra food, water, medicines and cash over the next 24 months in particular. Do NOT wait any longer!!”…
